Tens of thousands of men stormed Richmond, Virginia yesterday before stopping outside the legislature where they proceeded to not do anything (archived). Despite a handful of USG captures well in advance of the event, the men faced no serious opposition or challenges on their way to the Capitol building as they carried an assortment of infantry weapons. The men even allowed USG forces to capture of women accompanying them. The woman faces felony charges for wearing a mask in public. Local authorities estimate 22,000 armed men showed up and dispersed without challenging them.
Frontier Communications, the US connectivity provider that Verizon unloaded most of their copper network to, is moving towards a bankrupcy filing (archived).

A hereto unidentified Hawaii man killed two cops in the Diamond Head neighborhood of Honolulu (archived). A house where the man was suspected to be sheltering after the shooting caught fire, and the fire has spread to numerous surrounding homes. This would not be the first time cops in the US started fires to deal with a cornered suspect without regard for collateral damage, and there is little incentive for them not to burn everything down when USG courts routinely pass the cost of police inflicted property damage to the owner. Nevermind that police pyrotechnics routinely causing fires, the courts routinely buy police assurances that the fires following police pyrotechics are "unintentional" (archived).
Tensions are running high in Virginia as at least 6 would-be protesters have been arrested in advance of a rally in support of gun rights (archived). Demographic shifts in Virginia driven by hypertrophy in the USG have lead to a Pantsuitist government voted in by USG bureaucrats colonizing suburbs near DC to advance a whole number of measures objectionable to residents of the rest of the state. This demographic move towards an Illinois like political situation has many longtime Virginia residents very angry. Continue reading
Numerous cases concerning arms and their trafficking in the US are being decided in favor of defendants who don't roll over and plea due to the disconnect between a popular administrative convention and the actual text of the law (archived). It turns out that when the "weapon" being trafficked is an AR-15 lower receiver, the lower receiver itself doesn't qualify under the law as a "weapon" because too many of the features that the text of the law requires for it to be classes as a weapon are part of the upper receiver which is a completely different part on the AR-15.
Prosecutors and other USG bureaucrats have simply been pursuing cases through administrative convention, deciding the lower receiver itself would be the magic part they would treat as a weapon despite no single AR-15 part on its own qualifying as a weapon under the law. At present some members of the USG judiciary are already dismissing cases over prosecutor objections.
Remember kids, any plea agreement proposed by a USG prosecutor isn't ever any kind of deal.
Reports continue to pour in documenting many cases where US mobile networks are increasingly controlled by folks other than those that happen to have their names printed on the papers (archived). Employees seem to be happy to take outside money and instructions while sheer organizational bulk makes resolving "Whose line is it anyway?" a very difficult question to answer.
Earlier today, Iran's Parliament added the rest of the US Military to their list of global terrorists today after adding only CENTCOM and other USG subunits last April. (archived).

His departure is being presented as "planned in advance" of the USG's recent entry into open war with Iran. Continue reading
Democratically elected US President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike inside the perimeter of Iraq's Baghdad International Airport, and through doing so assassinated Iranian Quds force commander Qassem Soleimani while inflicting other casualties. Arrivals and departures from the airport have been disrupted by the attack. The attack is being presented by USG sources as retaliation for the recent seige of the US "Embassy" in Iraq by Iraqis who eventually dispersed when ordered to do so by Iraqi police and military forces.
