Likely there will some stunt somewhere today, perhaps not in DC. Hopefully there will be no casualties, but nothing will match the easing of mask mandates in Texas and Mississippi. Perhaps there’s a numerological formula for predicting the next stupid QAnon event.
There’s no shortage of deranged iconoclastic vandals.
According to a website for the attraction, America’s Stonehenge is believed to be more than 4,000 years old, and features various rock structures.
The site is thought to be one of the oldest man-made constructions in the United States, built by ancient people thousands of years ago who were well-versed in astronomy, according to the website.
Some have suggested the site traces its origins to Native Americans, while evidence of Ogham, Phoenician and Iberian Punic script has been found there, leading others to theorize early European connections, the website says.
Skeptics claim the site is the work of a 19th-century shoemaker.
A New Jersey man has been charged with criminal mischief after police say he took a power tool to a sacrificial stone tablet at America’s Stonehenge in Salem in 2019 and left behind a wooden cross with photos and drawings attached.
Mark Russo, 50, of Swedesboro, N.J., has been charged with one count of felony criminal mischief in the high-profile vandalism case. Salem detectives arrested Russo on Monday at the Salem County Correctional Facility in Woodstown, N.J., where he was being held pending extradition back to New Hampshire.
The arrest comes after an approximately 15-month investigation into vandalism at the America’s Stonehenge site in September 2019.
“We have obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4,” U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement Wednesday. “We are taking the intelligence seriously.” According to NBC News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued a similar bulletin Wednesday, warning of domestic extremists with “plans to take control of the U.S. Capitol and remove democratic lawmakers on or about 4 March.”
On March 4, conspiracy theorists believe that Trump will somehow return to power to take down a secret cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles. Up until the 1930s, March 4 was the traditional presidential Inauguration Day. After Trump failed to stop Joe Biden from becoming president in January, conspiracy theorists placed their hopes on March 4 instead.
