* California Weekend – If you are out training this weekend patriots, hiking, working ect – be aware of the Special Weather statement below in Warnings/ Advisories. * San Jose, CA – A second day of fast moving brush fires hit San Jose yesterday afternoon near Alum Park. It is about 105 acres and 50% contained. It has claimed 1 house so far. * Washington, DC – (Lot of info to try to keep you in the loop) President Trump uses Social media to blast news media for double standard in investigating the Clinton campaign for coordinating with foreign governments during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump Jr defended himself and said he would have done thigs somewhat differently in hindsight. Trump Jr had a meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer. She apparently used the idea of providing information on the Clinton campaign to gain access to Trump Jr but then was focused on discussing the Magnitsky Act (Humans Rights Abuses sanctions passed in 2012) The last piece of the puzzle is Rob Goldstone. He is a UK music producer who allegedly connected Trump Jr and Veselnitskaya. Goldstone manages a Russian popstar. The father of this popstar is Aras Agalarov, a very wealthy Moscow based real estate developer who is also attempting to bring a Trump Tower to Russia. Agalarov is also very close to Vladimir Putin and it has been claimed in the past that he has worked as a liaison between Trump and Putin in trying to connect them for business deals in the past. If you want more information Google the various names and read. There are lots of dots that can be connected. That being said, right now there is no evidence that ANYTHING illegal was done. * Washington, DC – President Trump new FBI Director will be former DOJ official Christopher Wray. He will be beginning confirmation process soon. As new documents are released from the investigation of Clinton emails, the question remains “Will the FBI re-open and investigation into the handling of those documents”. Wray has also stated that Director Mueller’s investigation into Russian hacking during the election is not a ‘with hunt’. * Antarctica – One of the largest icebergs ever has been created. A block broke from the Larsen C ice shelf that is approximately 6000 sq km (approx. 2316 sq miles).
