    Denver Newsroom, Nov 18, 2020 / 03:40 pm MT (CNA).- Two church buildings— one Baptist, one Catholic— were damaged by fires in apparent arson attacks Sunday morning in Brewster, a town in central Washington. Sacred Heart Catholic Church suffered some fire damage near the sanctuary from an incendiary device dropped through a broken window early Nov. 15. New Testament Baptist Church, located a block away, suffered more serious fire damage to its interior the same morning. Investigators have deemed the fire at Sacred Heart to be intentional, police say. The police have not yet made the same pronouncement about the...

    TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — The Travis County Democratic Party chair is responding after the organization’s office was vandalized late Monday evening. The outside walls of the 6th Street office were spray painted with red words and door windows were smashed. One of the spray-painted phrases reads, “reconstitute the communist party.” The organization says no staff or volunteers were there when the vandalism happened, and there doesn’t appear to be damage inside the building. Chair Katie Naranjo put out a statement, saying Travis County Democrats have made historic gains this election. “We are undeterred by these acts of vandalism and...

    Over the weekend, the Washington Post’s “former conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin reprised the “burn it down” meme, but this time it was issued as a directive to her fellow progressives. In her role as a commentator on MSNBC, Rubin said: It’s not only that Trump has to lose, his enablers have to lose. We have to collectively burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them. Because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will [elect a president] again. God forbid the Republicans will ever elect another president! It’s not clear how Rubin...

    Agents detained Anthony Smith, a social studies teacher and one of the organizers of the Philadelphia Coalition for Racial Economic and Legal Justice (Philly for REAL Justice), at his home Wednesday morning, his attorney Paul Hetznecker said.

McSwain has scheduled a news conference Thursday to announce the indictments on charges related to “police vehicle arsons.” Sources familiar with the investigation said it is tied to the unrest that roiled the city in May after the police killing of...

    The city of Berkeley urged residents of the hills to consider staying elsewhere amid what is expected to be the year's biggest wind event set to begin Sunday.

Warning of the potential for wildfires during the wind event and possible blocked roads and exit routes due to fallen trees, the press release urged Hills residents to "reduce the risk to your household" by leaving Sunday afternoon before a fire starts, especially for those residents who...

    SANTIAGO, Chile, October 20, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Two Catholic churches were destroyed in Chile’s capital city Sunday in the wake of riots marking the one-year anniversary of anti-government protests that called for a new constitution. “Television images from Santiago on Sunday showed masked protesters filming with their smartphones and cheering as the spire of the burning La Asunción church crashed to the ground,” the Wall Street Journal reported. “Demonstrators also set fire to San Francisco Borja church, which dates from the mid-19th century.” The Church of St. Francis Borgia is regularly used for law enforcement ceremonies. The Church of the...

    It was last Thursday morning around 7 a.m. when Jonathan Rempel, a farmer in Sutton, Nebraska, received a phone call from the Sutton Volunteer Fire Department. They told him that his combine (WHICH HAD BEEN FLYING TRUMP FLAGS), two semis, and a tractor had all caught fire in his cornfield "at about the same time." The tractors had all been parked a safe distance apart, and it looks like the equipment hadn't been used since the night prior (which makes this extra fishy). Sadly, the firefighters were not able to save the equipment. State Fire Marshal Investigators are currently looking...

    During the night from Saturday to Sunday, hooded men set a car on fire and threw it on the facade of St Pierre Chanel church, located between two working-class districts of Rillieux-la-Pape. This modern, concrete church is not strictly speaking a beautiful building in the middle of this district where more than 80% of the inhabitants live in social housing. It allows a very diverse Catholic community to come together, especially for Sunday Mass which is very famous there. A popular Catholicism as we see it less in large metropolitan centers. It was this building, and no other churches with...

We will make sure he follows all the provision,” Ruderman told the court, calling her stepson...

    Arab rioters and vandals targeted the Israeli town of Esh Kodesh in Samaria on Saturday, destroying property and hurling stones at residents. Fires were sparked at multiple locations around the town, causing damage to orchards owned by residents of Esh Kodesh. In addition, vandals uprooted trees and destroyed fences put up by local Jewish farmers. When residents rushed to the scene to put out the fires, they were stoned by Arab rioters and far-left activists, who had been lying in wait, apparently as part of a larger plan to lure residents out of Esh Kodesh. “This past year the orchards...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden condemned the indictment against an ex-Kentucky cop for shooting into Breonna Taylor’s adjoining apartment, saying the call for equal justice was “not answered.” The Democratic presidential nominee said Taylor, who was killed in a botched police drug raid in March, was “shot in her own home by the police.” “In the wake of her tragic death, we mourn with her mother, family, and community and ask ourselves whether justice could be equally applied in America,” Biden said in a statement. “I know for so many people today’s decision does not answer that call.” Biden’s statement...

The Princess Bride director made the fiery comments in a tweet on Saturday morning. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body isn’t even cold and Mitch McConnell is dancing on her grave,” he said. “This is war. Dems have powerful weapons. Now is the time to use them.”
