A series of package bombs exploded on Wednesday in the southwest China city of Liuzhou, killing at least seven people and injuring 51, state media said.

The official Xinhua news agency said police had determined the blasts were a "criminal" act and identified the suspect as a 33-year-old local man surnamed Wei, but added the investigation was continuing.

Media images showed a collapsed building, smoke and streets strewn with rubble in Liuzhou in Guangxi region. Two people were missing, state radio said on its microblog.

Bombs were sent to 13 places ranging from hospitals and shopping malls to prisons and government offices, reports said, adding that a terrorist attack had been ruled out.

The Ministry of Public Security has sent a team of experts to help with the investigation, Xinhua said.

Good, suspended only for two weeks. I like them both and I would guess the majority of watchers agree. :)

Fox News suspends two commentators for profanity while criticizing Obama

Ralph Peters, a Fox News "strategic analyst," called the president a "total pu---" who "doesn't want to hurt our enemies."

A couple of hours later Stacey Dash, a Fox contributor, said the president "didn't give a sh--" about Sunday night's terrorism speech.

"Earlier today, Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air," Fox senior executive vice president Bill Shine said.

"Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks," he said.

Dash's profane remark was partially bleeped during "Outnumbered," a lunchtime talk show on Fox News.

Peters' comments were not bleeped at all. He spoke to anchor Stuart Varney on the Fox Business Network, a smaller sister of Fox News.

Cyberstalking is a federal crime so a similar victim info shield law with the same intent is getting rave reviews in Congressional and Senate offices in DC and several states. If these don't go through there are ten more right behind it as a means to the same ends. :94 happy day :94

Ohio Senate debates shielding violence victims’ address info
The Associated Press
Published: February 23, 2016, 12:44 am

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Senate is taking up legislation that would shield the addresses of victims of domestic violence, stalking and other crimes from use by government agencies.
The bill getting a first hearing in the State and Local Government Committee Tuesday would let victims apply for a confidential address from the Ohio secretary of state if they’re worried about attackers tracking them down.
The address could be used when registering to vote or for any business with a government agency, such as a city water department, school or public university. The secretary of state’s office would forward mail to the real address daily.
Victims of sexual assault and human trafficking could also apply. The Ohio House approved the bill last month.

Trump Tower showdown: Thousands plan confrontation
Leftists call for protest march against billionaire's 'fascist policies'
By Douglas Ernst | WND.com | March 17, 2017


Image

Thousands of anti-Trump activists in New York City claim they will converge on Trump Tower this weekend to protest the billionaire’s so-called “fascist policies.”

A Facebook page set up by Cosmopolitan Anti-fascists has roughly 5,000 RSVPs for a protest at the 68-story building hovering over 5th Avenue. The event, which appears to be the Big Apple’s attempt to answer anti-Trump protests March 11 in Chicago, will be held Saturday at noon. Approximately 15,000 people said they are interested in attending.

The protesters at Trump Tower are calling today's event a success. I think I now understand all this anti-Trump stuff. Soros is paying the greatest amount of protest money to the ones who carry the most uncivil signs. Seriously, this IS free speech but ... really? I don't want these kids building bridges that I drive across. :roll

THX Molly :give

This stuff is clearly NEWS... but it's news about the organized and contrived Left activist uprising.. a continuation from Zimmerman, Ferguson, Baltimore.. etc etc.... It involves Trump in this instance, but its not "about Trump" as such.. nor the current Primary elections.

The double barrelled pistol designed to look like a smartphone: Firm boasts weapon can 'hide in plain sight' as anti-gun campaigners brand it irresponsible
By Stacy Liberatore | Daily Mail | March 24, 2016


Image

Image

A firm has designed a weapon that when in its locked position will be virtually undetectable because it 'hides in plain sight'.

Ideal Conceal is awaiting patent approval for a double barreled, .380 caliber pistol that folds down to mimic a smartphone - complete with mock camera lens and headphone jack.

This design has caught the attention of many gun enthusiasts who anticipate its release, but anti-gun organizations and law enforcement worry about how it will contribute to future gun violence.

'What's disturbing is that this looks like a real smartphone,' Andrew Patrick, Deputy Communications Director at Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, told DailyMail.

'There are countless stories of children playing with toy guns who were shot, because it was mistaken for the real thing.'

'This gun is not only dangerous, but it is also irresponsible.'
[...]
Ideal Concept has responded to the idea of this weapon being a ruse for law enforcement by stating they support 'law enforcement 100%' and their new design is geared towards those with a CCW 'and wants something he can conceal from the view of an attacker for self-defense'.

Saw there was an evacuation at the airport earlier. Watching to see if the two arrests are related.

One person arrested at Amsterdam airport
By Alexander Felton, Steve Almasy | CNN | April 12, 2016, 10:40PM


(CNN) Officials said Wednesday morning that Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport is fully operational again, hours after a section of the main terminal was cordoned off by police.

"We had a call about a situation," Amsterdam police spokesman Alfred Ellwanger said.

It was unclear what caused the security presence, but Tuesday night, airport officials wrote that part of the airport "is not accessible due to an incident.

Ellwanger said one person was arrested at the airport.

Another arrest was made at Leiden Centraal Station, about a 20-minute train ride from the airport, said Lodewijk Hekking, a spokesman for the Ministry of Justice and Security in Holland. It is unclear if the two arrests were related.

About two hours after the airport's tweet, officials wrote: "All areas are accessible again. Tomorrow, flights will run as usual."

‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed Files Lawsuit Alleging ‘Discrimination’ Against Texas School, City

Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, father of “Clock Boy” Ahmed, filed a federal lawsuit in Dallas against the Irving Independent School District, the MacArthur High School Principal and the City of Irving, on August 8.
The lawsuit claims Ahmed Mohamed’s rights were violated when he was arrested last year after the 14-year-old brought to school a clock device that resembled a hoax bomb. Although Mohamed’s engineering teacher advised him to put it away, he did not listen. Instead, Ahmed took the “clock” to English class where he plugged it in. It started to beep and scared the teacher. No charges were ever filed against the teen once the situation sorted itself out, but Mohamed served three days of suspension before his family withdrew him from Irving ISD and relocated to Qatar where Mohamed accepted a full scholarship to attend a Qatar Foundation school.

He didn't obey the teacher? There's the problem right there.
I'm going to watch this playout. I hope all of the defendants take it to trial and don't settle. There is NO WAY a jury would side with him/his family. :Q44

FAMILY OF GIRL ATTACKED BY MOUNTAIN LION: ‘SHE COULD HAVE BEEN GONE’
Quote:
REXBURG — A four-year-old girl who was snatched up by a mountain lion Friday night is recovering from the scary encounter, according to her grandfather.

“She is doing fine,” Jim Sevy told EastIdahoNews.com. “Her great-grandpa gave her a priesthood blessing and told her she will have stories to tell.”

The child was camping with her mother, siblings and cousins near Green Canyon Hot Springs east of Rexburg on Aug. 12.

Sevy said as the family was eating dinner, the girl’s mother thought she spotted a big cat out of the corner of her eye.

“Nobody else thought much of it and, a short time later, her mom went to put the four-year-old in the tent for a nap,” Sevy says.

The mother then took her six-year-old child into the woods to use the restroom, according to Sevy. That’s when everyone heard the younger child start to scream.

“She got out of the tent because she couldn’t find her shoe,” Sevy said. “That’s when the mountain lion grabbed her and started carrying her away.”

The girl’s mother chased the cougar and the cat released the child before running away.

10 Dead in 'Historic' Louisiana Flooding
By Emily Shapiro | ABCnews.com | August 16, 2016


Image

Ten people have died from torrential rain and flooding in southeastern Louisiana, which Gov. John Bel Edwards today described as "unprecedented" and "historic."

About 40,000 homes have been affected by the flooding, Edwards said.

More than 20,000 people have been rescued and about 8,000 were in shelters Monday night, according to Edwards.

President Obama declared a federal emergency in the state on Sunday.

The world's highest and longest glass-bottomed bridge has closed indefinitely, 13 days after opening in China, due to the “urgency to improve and update” the construction. I am horrified of heights but you really can't see the depth below the bridge in the video.

The scary thing is, the bridge is limited to 8,000 people a day and ten times the number of visitors wanted to get onto the skywalk on a daily basis, an official said.

Don't crack it! Worlds longest glass bottom bridge opens in Hunan, China
