BURNT ISLANDS, N.L. — Paula Keeping pointed to the window that was once her son's bedroom. It lay on top of the crumpled remains of her former house, a mess of wood siding and household items in the middle of a road. The debris was piled metres away from where the house stood last week before post-tropical storm Fiona blasted the southwestern Newfoundland community of Burnt Islands. "I figure my kitchen is out where my porch is too," she said. "It's devastating. Just in disbelief." Keeping said

PHOENIX (AP) — Long before he assembled one of the largest far-right anti-government militia groups in U.S. history, before his Oath Keepers stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Stewart Rhodes was a promising Yale Law School graduate. He secured a clerkship on the Arizona Supreme Court, in part thanks to his unusual life story: a stint as an Army paratrooper cut short by a training accident, followed by marriage, college and an Ivy League law degree.
