4 injured in blast at Moscow bus stop

December 7, 2015

 

 

"At least four people have been injured in a blast at bus stop in central Moscow, according to police and medical sources.

The four injured include a man and three women. Earlier it was reported that only three women suffered as a result of an attack which happened at a bus stop on Pokrovka Street in the center of Moscow.

"In total, four people were injured, three of them were hospitalized,” in the Institute of Emergency Care at Sklifosovsky, the Department of Health in Moscow reported, adding that the fourth victim refused hospitalization. None of the injuries are life-threatening, authorities say.

An unknown home-made explosive device has gone off at a public transport stop injuring three people,” police sources told TASS."

VandeSec Traces ISIS Twitter Accounts Back To Internet Addresses And Unearths A Surprising Source…

December 15, 2015 by Amanda Froelich

 

Teenage hacktivists uncovered an astonishing web of unpublicized interactions which link ISIS social media accounts to the British government.

 

According to a group of four young computer experts who call themselves VandaSec, a number of Islamic State supporters’ social media accounts are being run from internet addresses linked to the Department of Work and Pensions.

 

Mirror reports that Vandasec unearthed evidence which indicates that at least three ISIS-supporting accounts can be traced back to the DWP’s London offices.

 

Though you may not be aware of it, every computer or mobile phone you use logs onto the internet using an IP address. This address is a type of identification number which can track an individuals’ location and whereabouts.

 

Vandasec traced the IP addresses used by a trio of separate digital jihadis to access Twitter accounts and conduct online recruitment and propaganda campaigns. Shortly after, they relayed the crucial findings to Mirror Online.

At first, the IP addresses seem to be based in Saudi Arabia, but upon further inspect using specialist tools, they were linked back to the Department of Work and Pensions in Britain.

Said one of the hackers:

“Don’t you think that’s strange? We traced these accounts back to London, the home of the British intelligence services.” 

 

The findings have spurred rumors that someone inside the DWP is running ISIS-supporting accounts. Of course, there is the possibility that the DWP is using the accounts as a way to trap wannabe jihadis.

 

Which is why Mirror Online traced the IP addresses obtained by the teenage hackers and found they pointed to a series of unpublicized transactions between Britain and Saudi Arabia. 

It was discovered that the British government sold a large number of IP addresses to two Saudi Arabian firms earlier this year. Once the sale was complete, the addresses were then used by extremists to spread their message of hate.

 

The DWP denied owning the IP addresses. However, expert Jamie Turner, from a firm called PCA Predict, also discovered a record of the sale of IP addresses and found a large number were transferred to Saudi Arabia in October of 2015. According to him, the IP addresses could still be traced back to the DWP because records of the addresses had not yet been fully updated.

The damning evidence finally spurred the Cabinet Office to admit to selling the IP addresses on to Saudi Telecom and the Saudi-based Mobile Telecommunications Company earlier this year. Apparently, such was done as part of a wider drive to “get rid of a large number of the DWP’s IP addresses.”

Once the addresses are sold, says the British Government, they have no control over how the addresses are used.

“The government owns millions of unused IP addresses which we are selling to get a good return for hardworking taxpayers,”
said a Cabinet Office spokesperson.
“We have sold a number of these addresses to telecoms companies both in the UK and internationally to allow their customers to connect to the internet. We think carefully about which companies we sell addresses to, but how their customers use this internet connection is
beyond our control
.”

 

There is no report on how much the government made on the sales of the IP addresses, as the information is considered to be commercially sensitive.

 

If you’re feeling much is askew, you’re not alone. There’s plenty of evidence suggesting the terrorist organization ISIS and the ‘extremists’ who back it are not who they seem. Just read here, here, and here for more information on that.

L.A. schools to reopen Wednesday; threat against schools was 'not credible,' officials say

December 15, 2015

 

"The Los Angeles Unified School District will reopen for classes Wednesday morning, one day after a threat prompted the closure of the district's more than 900 schools, officials said.

 

The FBI and local police have investigated the threat made against the nation's second-largest school district and concluded that the threat was not credible, said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.


The decision to reopen schools and resume after-school activities was made after more than 1,500 sites were inspected and found to be safe, said Steve Zimmer, president of the L.A. Board of Education. 


While the school district could technically be subject to a loss of $29 million in per-pupil funding for closing campuses, state Supt. of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson said that he is certain the district would not be docked those funds.


Garcetti and other city leaders cautioned that the investigation into the threat was ongoing."

Chinese Media Warns Australia About Surveillance Flights Over S. China Sea
17.12.2015
 
An editorial in the Global Times, a Chinese state-owned newspaper, appears to warn Australia that its planes could be shot down if they continue surveillance flights over the disputed South China Sea.
"Australia should not count on being welcomed or accepted," if it is in airspace around the disputed territories, reads an editorial in the Chinese language version of the Global Times.
 
"The Chinese people cannot understand why the Australian military would get involved, and to be honest, they have less patience to prevent a flare up," according to the paper.
 
snip
 
The Australian Department of Defense said the flight was not an FON exercise, stating, rather, that it was a routine maritime surveillance patrol under Operation Gateway, launched in 1980 to preserve regional stability.
 
The Chinese newspaper editorial warned that "Australian military planes better not regularly come to the South China Sea to 'get involved,' and especially don't test China's patience by flying close to China's islands.
 
"Everyone has always been careful, but it would be a shame if one day a plane fell from the sky and it happened to be Australian."

Media in Oz has been going on and on about the price of oil and fuel - and why Australians are still paying so much for it when the price of oil has halved. Definitely something going on with oil in the big scheme of things.

CGI's DocSmallBerries: The oil plot thickens: "Something Strange Is Taking Place In The Middle Of The Atlantic Ocean."

From CGI's DocSmallBerries:

CGI is Rumor Mill news readers forum.

*******************************************************

In the latest sign that the world is simply running out of capacity when it comes to coping with an inexorable supply of commodities, three diesel tankers en route from the Gulf to Europe did something rather odd on Wednesday: they stopped, turned around in the middle of the ocean, and headed back the way they came!

"At least three 37,000 tonne tankers - Vendome Street, Atlantic Star and Atlantic Titan - have made U-turns in the Atlantic ocean in recent days and are now heading back west," Reuters reported, citing its own tracking data.

The Vendome Street actually made it to within 800 miles of Portgual (so around 75% of the way there) before abruptly turning around. "Ship brokers said a turnaround so late in the journey would come at a cost to the charterer," Reuters notes.

The problem: low prices, no storage capacity, and soft demand.

Shooting at Northlake Mall in Charlotte, North Carolina

Posted By: RumorMail [Send E-Mail]
Date: Thursday, 24-Dec-2015 15:21:29

 

Snip

A gunman has been shot dead by police after opening fire at the Northlake Mall in Charlotte, North Carolina, officials say. (more)

Channel 9 reporter Jason Stoogenke said he saw more than 30 police cruisers at the mall.

Three separate witnesses told him that two people were involved in a fight inside a shoe store when one pulled a gun and shot and killed the other.

Witnesses said police confronted the gunman and told him to drop his weapon, and when he did not, officers shot that person.

Police have not confirmed those details.

It was unclear if officials had closed the mall

Reports of the shooting came in at about 2 p.m. ET on Thursday, but few details were immediately available. Witnesses reported hearing at least seven gunshots being fired at the mall, and hundreds of terrified shoppers were seen fleeing from the stores as officers rushed to the
scene
.

The Mecklenburg EMS Agency reported at least one patient who was suffering from a leg injury, but medics were also tending to a woman in labor and a patient with an asthma attack. It is unclear if there are any other victims. The mall is being evacuated, and SWAT is responding.

Charlotte police confirmed that an officer-involved shooting had occurred, but the status of the shooter was not immediately clear. A witness and a police source confirmed to WBTV that the shooter was shot and killed by a police officer who responded to the scene.

The Charlotte Fire Department said it was receiving an "unusually high call volume" as a result of the shooting, and urged residents to use 911 for emergencies only. People with non-emergency calls and questions should call 311 instead.

Northlake Mall includes stores such as Dillard's, Macy's, Belk, Dick's Sporting Goods, and more than 150 other stores and restaurants, as well as an AMC 14-screen cinema.

Armed takeover of Oregon wildlife refuge

 

A protest over the impending jail sentence of two Oregon ranchers facing time for arson escalated into a militia-led armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge, one that the leader vowed late Saturday could last "for years."

The occupation, which is being led by Ammon Bundy, the son of a Nevada rancher involved in previous clashes with the government, and two of his brothers, came on the behalf of the ranchers and not at their behest.

 

"The facility has been the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds," Ammon Bundy told The Oregonian in an interview published Saturday night from the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. "We're planning on staying here for years, absolutely,"

"This is not a decision we've made at the last minute," he added. In an interview conducted Sunday morning on CNN, Bundy called the refuge "destructive to the people of the county and to the people of the area."

SNIP Militia occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from Malheur incident)

 

On January 2, 2016, armed members of several militias took control of the headquarters building at the United States Fish and Wildlife Service's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in protest of the pending imprisonment of Harney County, Oregon ranchers Dwight and Steve Hammond. The Hammonds have rejected the intervention of militias and disclaimed affiliation with the Bundy family. It is an event in eastern Oregon connected with the Bundy standoff.

The Hammond Family Does NOT Want an Armed Stand Off, and Nobody Has a Right to Force One On Them

https://www.oathkeepers.org/the-hammond-family-does/

 

We cannot force ourselves or our protection on people who do not want it.   Dwight and Steven Hammond have made it clear, through their attorney, that they just want to turn themselves in and serve out their sentence. And that clear statement of their intent should be the end of the discussion on this.  No patriot group or individual has the right or the authority to force an armed stand off on this family, or around them, against their wishes.  You cannot help someone who does not want your help, and who are not willing and ready to take a hard stand themselves.

 

 

WRITTEN STATEMENT ON HAMMOND SITUATION:

 

I regret having to even make this statement, but I have no choice, since Ammon Bundy has not made it sufficiently clear to the patriot community that the Hammond family has declined physical armed help, and by all indications does NOT want any kind of armed stand off with the Federal government, and they do NOT want anyone to attempt to protect Dwight and Steven Hammond from being taken into Federal custody on Monday, January 4, 2016 when they are scheduled to turn themselves in to serve additional time for their felony convictions (which came after a jury found them guilty).   They intend to voluntarily turn themselves in and serve out the remainder of their sentence, under federal minimum sentencing statutes, after losing in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on that issue.  In fact, they have made it very clear, through a public statement by their lawyer, in a letter to the Sheriff dated December 11, 2015, that:

Neither Ammon Bundy nor anyone in his group/organization speaks for the Hammond Family, Dwight Hammond or Steven Hammond.  In addition, I wish to report to you that, as recently ordered by the District Court, District of Oregon, Dwight Hammond and Steven Hammond intend to voluntarily report to the designated federal facility on January 4, 2016, as required.

Oregon Standoff: A Terrible Plan That We Might Be Stuck With

Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

 

Well, there is whole host of things wrong with this situation, which is why I never supported or endorsed "Operation Hammond Freedom" to begin with.  There is a lot of misinformation out there at this time on the debacle in Oregon, and certain alternative media outlets seem to be conveniently overlooking particular facts.  I suspect that some people in the movement simply want to "kick it off" (a second American revolution), and they don't care if the circumstances of that kick-off are favorable or terrible (I realize "favorable" is relative, but starting this fight from a much stronger position is more than possible).  This attitude was prevalent among some at Bundy Ranch, as certain groups refused to dig in positions for a real fight in the hopes that they would be "martyred" for the cause.  This, in case you were wondering, is idiotic.

 

Oath Keepers including founder Stewart Rhodes was the only organization to predict how Ammon Bundy's vague calls for action on the part of the Hammond Family would actually play out.  They received a lot of ignorant attacks in response, and yet, they were absolutely right.

 

Ammon, apparently trying to recreate what cannot be recreated, is looking for another Bundy Ranch stand-off.  First, I would point out that such events can't be artificially fabricated.  They have to happen in an organic way.  Whenever a group of people attempt to engineer a revolutionary moment, even if their underlying motivations are righteous, it usually ends up kicking them in the ass (Fort Sumter is a good example).  Ammon's wingmen appear to be Blaine Cooper aka Stanley Blaine Hicks (a convicted felon), and Ryan Payne (who claimed falsely during the Bundy Ranch standoff that he was an Army Ranger and who worked diligently to cause divisions between involved parties on the ground).  This was the first sign that nothing good was going to come from the Hammond protest.

 

I have watched extensive video from the event in Oregon and am privy to accounts from participants.  From the information at my disposal, it would appear that Ammon and team did NOT make clear their intentions to occupy the federal wildlife refuge building except to a select few, inviting protesters to "take a hard stand" without revealing what this would entail until they were already in the middle of it all.  OPSEC?  No, I think not.  Obviously the goal was to lure as many protesters to Oregon as possible to the event in the hopes that they would jump on board with the stand-off plan once they were more personally involved.  Numerous protesters were rightly enraged once they discovered the ultimate motives behind the event.

 

The plan is basically this - use the Hammond family as a vehicle (yes, this is what is being done) even though they did not want any kind of standoff to result and specifically refused aid.  Occupy federally owned buildings which have little to do with anything of importance and have no symbolic power as did Bundy Ranch.  Elicit federal response.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

 

Bundy Ranch had many positive elements going for it, which is why it ended the way it did.  This standoff has none of the same elements.  I suppose one could ask, though, why do I care?

 

It's true, these people have every right to make positively naive strategic errors and I don't have to participate directly if I don't like it.  The problem, however, is that Ammon and friends have decided they want to be the "tip of the spear" (his words, not mine).  I do not think they understand what this means, or they don't care.  What it means is, even though I think the entire Oregon plan is ill conceived; literally the WORST possible way to launch a fight against federal corruption, if the federal government moves in a heavy handed manner to kill these people, I and many others will have to fight as well by default when a FAR better tactical and social position could have been achieved.  My conscience simply will not allow the rationalization of the deaths of liberty minded people even if their stupidity brought about the circumstances.  And frankly, that pisses me off.

 

As a student of asymmetrics, I understand that choosing the time, place and circumstances is 95% of the battle ahead against an advanced opponent.  More organization is needed.  More preparedness.  More training.  More public awareness.  The Oregon standoff could steal away what little time we had left.

 

The Oregon standoff potentially forces the hand of the Liberty Movement, not the hand of corrupt government - the exact reverse of what should be happening.

 

Mike Vanderboegh has outlined similar thoughts expertly in this article.  Everything he has written is exactly what was going through my own mind when I heard of the happenings in Oregon.  Ammon Bundy and companions are not the tip of the spear.  Not even close.  What I do fear is that they are cannon fodder beckoning a nationwide government crackdown to which I and others will then be forced to personally respond to with equal f*cking measure.  And all of this on the worst possible terms and at a very inconvenient time (executive actions on gun control mere weeks from now).

 

And here's the best part; those of us who remain critical of the clinically retarded maneuver being executed here are going to be called cowards and "keyboard warriors"; it's a given.  We are all ready to fight for the future of this country, we have been training diligently for it and helping many others along the way.  But, because we do not support two dimensional planning there are those that will say - "Now we find out who the real patriots are!"

 

Against stupid plan = coward against freedom and action.  Just watch.

If the Feds use brutality to handle the Oregon conflict, it will indeed "kick-off".  There wont be any way to stop it.  Just don't get too excited, folks.  This is no Lexington or Concord.  I really don't know what to call it...

January 3, 2016 7:18 pm EST BREAKING: FBI en route to Oregon Federal Building occupation with scores of fully armed agents

 

Federal Agents arrive in Oregon en masse, prepare to gain tactical advantage over militia with swift, hot, response effort

 

Go here for live updates:

http://bit.ly/1YZDPuE

Burns, Ore. (INTELLIHUB) — Heavily armed and well-equipped federal agents have arrived in Oregon from various parts of the U.S. to gain tactical advantage over the armed patriot group who commandeered a federal building Saturday, by responding swiftly and with force if necessary.

 

Additionally, political figures have been placed under an unofficial public gag order and were instructed to not talk about the situation. So far major mainstream coverage of the event has been limited.

 

It is important to note that if authorities really have issued a sort of unofficial gag order then they are most likely planning on a violent confrontation with the militia and patriot groups on scene.

Intellihub staff anticipates FBI agents, along with embedded members of the press, to arrive on scene sometime during the wee hours of Monday morning.

Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward issued a statement on Saturday which said:

These men came to Harney County claiming to be part of militia groups supporting local ranchers, when in reality these men had alternative motives to attempt to over throw the county and federal government in hopes to spark a movement across the United States.

We are currently working jointly with several organizations to make sure the citizens of Harney County are safe and this issue is resolved as quickly and peaceful as possible. At this time we do not have any information that any other areas in Harney County are in immediate danger.

We ask that people stay away from the refuge for their safety. We also ask that if anyone sees any of these individuals in the area to please contact law enforcement and do not confront the individuals themselves.

 

Intellihub staff managed to get the message to boots on the ground, warning the militia. At this point one has to wonder if the FBI and or other government agencies have agent provocateurs staged WITHIN the militia group occupying the federal building.

If that is the case then we truly are at red alert level.

The Case for Civil Disobedience in Oregon

 

Watching the news yesterday, a person could be forgiven for thinking that a small group of Americans had literally lost their minds. Militias are marching through Oregon on behalf of convicted arsonists? A small band of armed men has taken over a federal building? The story practically writes itself.

 

Or does it? Deranged militiamen spoiling for a fight against the federal government make for good copy, but what if they’re right? What if the government viciously and unjustly prosecuted a rancher family so as to drive them from their land? Then protest, including civil disobedience, would be not just understandable but moral, and maybe even necessary.

 

Ignore for a moment the #OregonUnderAttack hashtag — a rallying cry for leftists accusing the protesters of terrorism — and the liberal media’s self-satisfied cackling. Read the court documents in the case that triggered the protest, and the accounts of sympathetic ranchers. What emerges is a picture of a federal agency that will use any means necessary, including abusing federal anti-terrorism statutes, to increase government landholdings.

 

The story as told by the protesters begins not with the federal criminal case against Steven and Dwight Hammond but many years earlier, with the creation and expansion of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, a tract of federal land set aside by President Theodore Roosevelt as “a preserve and breeding-ground for native birds.” The federal government has since expanded the preserve in part by buying adjacent private land.

 

Protesters allege that when private landowners refused to sell, the federal government got aggressive, diverting water during the 1980s into the “rising Malheur lakes.” Eventually, the lakes flooded “homes, corrals, barns, and graze-land.” Ranchers who were “broke and destroyed” then “begged” the government to buy their “useless ranches.”

Feds base of operations exposed, school commandeered as authorities prepare for response to occupied federal building

It’s getting real: Law enforcement preparing response

 

BURNS, Ore. (INTELLIHUB) — Radio talk show host Pete Santilli and his crew have now exposed the location of a public school that has been commandeered by federal law enforcement agents to serve as a base of operations.

 

All parents of schoolkids have been informed to keep their children at home throughout the week as the situation develops.

 

Members of the Sheriff’s Department and members of the press were spotted at the location along with vehicles displaying government plates.

Intellihub believes Santilli’s video shows the Henry L Slater Elementary School at night.

Additionally Santilli said he was being “tailed” by the FBI after going to the local Verizon Wireless store.

Armed ranchers and militia take defensive positions, prepare for FBI raid

 

FBI raid may happen soon, militia and ranchers locked and loaded

PRINCETON, Ore. (INTELLIHUB) — An Arizona rancher by the name of LaVoy Finicum has vowed to standoff with the federal government Tuesday, in support of Constitutional freedom and claims he’s not afraid to lose his life in doing so.

This comes after the FBI has allegedly issued arrest warrants for protesters occupying the wildlife preserve.

 

Finicum is waiting at the entrance for authorities and is fully prepared to faceoff until the death.

Bundy and Militiamen have taken government vehicles to Barricade themselves in at wildlife refuge in response to FBI Raid that might happen tonight

 

 

The Bundy brothers and other members of their group have barricaded in the building in which they are currently occupying and are now taking defensive positions in preparation for what could easily develop into a full-scale battle.

 

URGENT Warning on OR Standoff: Military Special OP Assets Have Been Assigned for Standoff. Get All Children Out of There Immediately

Oath Keepers has received very credible information from an active duty source within the special operations community that at least one SOD-X (Reserve/National Guard Special Operations Detachment, see this, this, and this) unit under the command of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has been tasked for this standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Reserve and moved to the area.   Given this, we should expect that other special operations assets, such as Delta Force, will also be involved if the Obama Administration decides to give the green light on a military raid/strike.  And we should expect the presence of the infamous FBI HRT (which were present at both Ruby Ridge and Waco).

Oregon “Bundy Militia” Standoff – The U.S. Attorney At The Heart of The Hammond Family Problem…

 

The media are focused on the “Bundy Militia” angle to the standoff in Burns Oregon, where Aamon Bundy and brothers have taken over a Malheur Wildlife Refuge Headquarters to draw attention to the plight of the Hammond family 

However, a little research into the original legal battle reveals a rather startling update.

 

The initial, and regarded by many as overreaching, federal prosecution resulted in a federal court judge Michael Hogan assigning a 3-month sentence and 1-year sentence for Dwight Lincoln Hammond Jr (73) and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond (46) respectively.

Even federal Judge Hogan stated the prosecution under “terrorism statutes” itself was an overreach and he refused to assign ridiculously high sentences for behavior that almost every rancher has conducted for generations.

Those sentences were fulfilled by the father an son duo in 2013 with Steven Hammond exiting prison in January 2014.   However, it was a decision by the U.S Attorney for the State of Oregon, Amanda Marshall, who called for an appeal to the original sentencing:

Malheur County targeted for gold, uranium mines

 

Sprawling Malheur County could soon be in the spotlight as a mining hub -- or a battleground of uranium and gold mining interests vs. environmentalists trying to protect its lonesome sagebrush landscape.

 

Australian-owned Oregon Energy LLC hopes to mine 18 million pounds of yellowcake uranium from the southeastern Oregon high desert 10 miles west of McDermitt near the Oregon-Nevada boundary. The go-ahead to mine the so-called Aurora uranium deposit could bring up to 250 construction jobs to the county, followed by 150 mining jobs.

 

Meanwhile, Calico Resources USA Corp., a subsidiary of a Vancouver, B.C., company, may seek permits this month to chemically extract microscopic gold from a high desert butte south of Vale called Grassy Mountain, a project likely to create another 100 jobs.

Dems Horrified When Shocking Truth About Oregon Standoff Comes Out… Obama Totally Silent

 

The way one member of the liberal mainstream media establishment chose to respond to the crisis in Burns, Oregon, where armed militia members commandeered the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in support of rancher Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven, spoke volumes about not just the media’s bias, but its hypocrisy as well.

 

Jonathan Chait, a liberal blowhard at New York magazine, would like to see the militiamen involved in the Oregon standoff gunned down like animals.

 

On Sunday, reporter Ian Kullgren revealed on Twitter that he had talked to lead militiaman Ryan Bundy and that Bundy had told him “they’re willing to kill and be killed if necessary.”

 

“Do we get to vote on this?” Chait tweeted back in reply. “Because I’m voting for #2.”

 

I might be mistaken, but it sounded to me as if Chait publicly advocated for violence against citizens of the United States. Yet his pals in the liberal media establishment made no fuss about his statement, because apparently, calling for violence against protesters is now suddenly OK.

Experts: Oregon standoff may be small, but it’s just the tip of a growing militia iceberg

 

The seizure of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon by armed anti-government extremists has attracted national attention and raised questions about whether the takeover is a powder keg about to blow.

But experts who monitor the anti-government movement say an even greater concern is lurking behind the confrontation that erupted Saturday at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the high desert of eastern Oregon.

The militia movement, they say, is in the midst of a massive growth spurt at levels even greater than in the early 1990s after the Waco, Texas, standoff and the siege at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. It peaked after the Oklahoma City bombing.

“It’s bigger than anything we’ve seen before,” said Leonard Zeskind, president of the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights. “And it’s not simply a resurgence of the ’90s militia movement; it’s different in many ways. Now it’s much broader.”

The growth of an “insurgent militia movement,” Zeskind said, is the result of a combination of events, including a renewed effort to strengthen gun control laws and the revival of the white nationalist movement over the Confederate flag issue.
