Sunday roundup

A few noteworthy aspects of North Korea's upcoming nuclear-weapon test: The weapon in question may be small enough to fit on an ICBM, and / or it may be a hydrogen bomb, and / or there may be two weapons tested simultaneously.

Mosques in Germany have apparently been used to spy for the Turkish government.

Virginia jackboots can't stand the thought of a Congressman holding a town hall:

Students and residents in Charlottesville, Virginia, protested Republican Rep. Tom Garrett’s first town hall Friday with a massive sign stating “no dialogue with white supremacy” and chants including “say it loud, say it clear: immigrants are welcome here.”
Garrett was protested both inside and outside of the building at the University of Virginia where he hosted the town hall, reports NBC 29. Both Showing Up for Racial Justice and UVA Students United organized the protests.

“[W]e refuse to give him a platform to spout his politics of racial terror and white supremacy,” the Charlottesville chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice said in a Facebook post. “Engaging in polite conversation with Garrett normalizes his extreme views and allows them to spread. Instead, we need to disrupt this language and these policies in order to make space to create a world in which we can all be liberated from the damning violence of white supremacy that has built and structured this nation since its inception through settler colonialism and racial chattel slavery.”

Climate liar Michael Mann tries to play the martyr in his testimony before the House Science Committee.
