    Atlanta protesters vandalized the Georgia State Patrol headquarters early Sunday, spraying graffiti and sparking a fire inside the building with fireworks, the agency said. As many as 100 people, many dressed in black and wearing masks, marched outside the building at around 1 a.m., the Georgia State Patrol (GSP) said in an emailed statement. The agency described the group as protesters, who carried rocks, fireworks, and spray paint. Video footage from the scene shows a group of several dozen people outside the building and the sound of drums beating in the background. Several fireworks are set off. A loud bang...

    My, but Iran must have a lot of defective “industrial gas tanks” lying around. A week after Iranian officials tried to explain away a massive explosion at Parchin as a civilian-area accident, a large fire at Natanz might prove more difficult to dismiss. Natanz, like Parchin, is a site where the US alleges that Iran has performed work on their nuclear-weapons program, and experts believe that uranium-enriching centrifuge work might have been the target this time: Iran says there has been an “incident” at one of its nuclear facilities.Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi did not...

    One of the saddest things I have seen in society is the anarchic sight of authority figures - who are utterly undeserving of that mantle - kneeling before mobs of rioters. The mobs of rioters are being rewarded, by groveling subservience, for looting and burning businesses. They will be emboldened by that and will carry their theft and arson to suburban homes and rural farms. Appeasing mobs of rioters who verily seek to burn down civilization is a bad idea. Additionally, the country was founded on the refusal to kneel before the legions of a distant king. Kneeling before the...

    The baffling part is not that it’s happening, but that the general media is making believe that it is not happening. According to legend, in 1864, as the city of Atlanta burned, famous Union general William Tecumseh Sherman concluded that “War is Hell.” Most historians find that Sherman first used the expression a decade later in a commencement address he delivered to a Michigan military academy. Historical accuracy aside, whenever he first uttered those words, they resonated. And they resonate today. As a symbol of destruction, fire is extremely powerful. Fire destroys, fire singes, fire maims, and when fire is...

    Protests swept over the city of Guadalajara, located in the western state of Jalisco, after 30-year-old builder Giovanni Lopez was found dead. The last time Lopez was seen was documented in a video circulating on social media earlier this week. The video showed Lopez with police officers who were arresting him because he was not wearing a face mask. Enraged by the video, protesters took to the streets, burning patrol cars outside of the Governor’s Palace and writing messages demanding justice for Lopez on the walls in the historic center. Later that evening, Lopez’s family went to the police station...

    Governor Newsom is behind in the Most Loathsome Governor in America race, largely because he hasn't managed to kill as many nursing home residents as rivals like Cuomo and Murphy. But here he is trying to take first responders hostage. California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that the federal government has a "moral obligation" to provide funding for states in its next coronavirus relief bill, noting that police officers, health care workers and firefighters will be the first ones laid off as a result of massive budget deficits.

    The first executions for New York’s 1741 fires took place on this date in 1741, several weeks before any others. They were two slaves of regal name: Caesar, the property of a baker named John Vaarck, and Prince, who was owned by the merchant John Auboyneau. The first thing to know about these two men is that they were arrested in the first days of March … more than two weeks before fire consumed Fort George and initiated Gotham’s burning season. Though Prince was out on bail (as were the tavern owners John and Sarah Hughson, also arrested at the...

    Black smoke has been seen billowing from China’s first assault carrier in Shanghai. The new Type-075 carrier, which is similar to the U.S. Navy’s America Class assault carriers, is designed to carry helicopters and hovercraft to support amphibious landings. The smoke was reported on Chinese social media platforms earlier today. Images suggest that the fire took hold within the hull of the ship, possibly in the expansive aircraft hanger. Smoke came out of the open aircraft lift near the front of the island superstructure. Smoke also came out of the rear hangar opening. For a time a massive cloud of...
