1…………> Ignored Warnings: World-Wide Fires
Firefighters in Sweden have faced their worst bushfire season since records began more than 260 years ago, recording 18 of its warmest 19 summers in the past 25 years.
At the same time, on the other side of the world, the Mendocino fire is the largest in Californian history at 148,000 hectares as Australians were brought in to help fight fires this year that burned more than 24,000 hectares of land.
For Stockholm’s chief fire officer Peter Arnevall, July 15 heralded a new breed of the firestorm he had not experienced before, with blazes above the Arctic Circle.
“We’ve never seen anything like this,” he said.
“It was so many fires at the same time, and they were so large, it gave us a sense of hopelessness because we didn’t have enough resources within Sweden to handle it.” They were understaffed and underprepared to face what confronted them.
“We don’t have the firefighting planes; we don’t have the helicopters because we’re not used to these types of fires,” Mr. Arnevall said.
“We need to have more resources; we need to think a bit differently.”
2…………> Patriots Rally: Seattle
White supremacist marchers members of the ‘Patriot Prayer’ group gathered by the Seattle’s city hall wearing handguns, carrying rifles and donning body armor, padded gloves, ear protection and equipped alongside other tactical military gear.
Founded by white nationalist Joey Gibson, the Patriot Prayer group co-hosted the march alongside, a Washington state group calling themselves the Three Percenters, members of which advocate for the right to carry weapons and firearms in every walk of life. As a candidate, Gibson drew about 2% of the vote in a recent Washington US Senate primary.
The white supremacist asserted that marchers were demonstrating against the “violence on the far left,” as hundreds of counter-protesters converged across the street from where the rally took place.
A heavy police presence, many on bicycles, kept the two sides apart.
3…………> Patriots vs. Antifa: Stewart vs. Kaine
The Republican nominee for the US Senate in Virginia Corey Stewart, a man with alleged ties to white supremacists, tweeted a photo of the Democratic opponent and current Virginia Senator Tim Kaine shaking hands with Joseph Stalin, the former General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
“The image of the USSR leader appears to have been lifted from a historic photograph depicting a meeting between Stalin, former UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and former US President Harry Truman on July 17, 1945”
The conservative Republican’s tweet appears to be an effort to link Kaine to ‘Antifa’ for anti-fascist groups who routinely clash with the white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups supported by Stewart. It appears that Stewart’s inflammatory rhetoric will not end anytime soon.
“We’re still digging through Tim Kaine’s old albums — just wait until you see the photo of him playing golf with Karl Marx!” Stewart said.
