Appalachian Trail

For many, the idea of through-hiking the Appalachian Trail is seen as the ultimate test of mind, body, and soul.

The grueling hike, which spans the east coast from Georgia to Maine, is a rite of passage for many outdoorsmen and women who see the test as not only a physical test, but one that requires a great amount of mental fortitude as well.

And that’s without a machete-wielding madman on the loose either.

James Jordan, 30, of West Yarmouth, Mass., was arrested early Saturday on a federal complaint charging him with murder and assault with intent to murder in connection with the “senseless and brutal attack” on the two unidentified hikers, Abingdon U.S. Attorney Thomas Cullen said.

This isn’t the first time that Jordan’s antics warranted police intervention.

Jordan was known to hike the Appalachian Trail under the moniker “Sovereign,” WCYB-TV reported. He was arrested in April for threatening hikers on the Appalachian Trail in Tennessee, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to probation, according to WJHL-TV.

Jordan’s bizarre behavior culminated in a deadly attack over the weekend, and authorities are grateful to have neutralized the situation as quickly as they did, especially given the remote nature of the area.

Hating America has seemingly never been cooler than it is today. It is really sad to see how so many people don’t understand how good they have it, and would rather cause violence and disruption instead of making the nation an even better place. Here’s some of what went down in DC on Independence Day, via TDW: Far-left activists trampled on an American flag in Washington, D.C., on the nation’s 244th birthday.

The activist group wants the DC police department defunded, prison and jails dismantled, and stop and frisk tactics ended — all initiatives they say Mayor Bowser hasn’t invested in.

The NFL is set to play the “Black National Anthem” before all week one games kickoff this upcoming season. The NBA has already said it will paint “Black Lives Matter” on courts. But they’re not stopping there. Check this out, per ESPN: The National Basketball Players Association and the NBA reached an agreement Friday on social justice messages that can be displayed above the numbers on the backs of jerseys when the league resumes play July 30, a source told ESPN’s The Undefeated. The list of the suggested social messages that were agreed upon by the NBPA and the NBA and then made available to players via email, per the source, are: Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names; Vote; I Can’t Breathe; Justice; Peace; Equality; Freedom; Enough; Power to the People; Justice Now; Say Her Name; Sí Se Puede (Yes We Can); Liberation; See Us; Hear Us; Respect Us; Love Us; Listen; Listen to Us; Stand Up; Ally; Anti-Racist; I Am A Man; Speak Up; How Many More; Group Economics; Education Reform; and Mentor. […] After the first four nights, a player can simply go back to their last name. If they choose to continue showing a social message, their name would go below the number. Check out the thoughts of this former ESPN reporter on the George Floyd rioters and looters, via Sporting News: Palmer was offering his thoughts on the protests across the United States in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
