amanderson2/Flickr The Georgia Guidestones, a mysterious granite monument, was demolished Wednesday evening following an explosion earlier in the morning that destroyed a portion of the statue.
The monolith panels — located 90 miles east of Atlanta — were vandalized by an explosion around 4:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to investigators, per 11 Alive. “A large portion of the structure” was destroyed when authorities arrived on the scene. Later in the afternoon, the GBI announced that crews had demolished the rest of the structure “[f]or safety reasons.” (2/3) The videos show the explosion and a car leaving the scene shortly after the explosion.

The Elbert County Sheriff’s Office, who initially responded to the scene, requested the GBI’s assistance in the investigation, 11 Alive noted.
No arrests or suspects of interest in connection with the explosion have been reported as of yet.
The monument was erected in 1980, built from local granite, by an unknown individual or group who went by the pseudonym “R.C. Christian,” the Associated Press (AP) reported .
Different reports vary as to how tall the stones stand, although Christopher Kubas, Executive Vice President of the Elberton Granite Association, said they did stand at “16 feet and 4 inches tall,” WYFF 4 reported . Kubas noted they “weighed about 42,000 pounds each.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
