* North Korea – N. Korea has said if “If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly” The rogue nation continued it rhetoric stating that they are capable of fighting any war with the US and that they are on standby to launch an attack on the mainland. * Charlottesville, Virginia – It is now being reported that a car has plowed into a group of counter protestors (This is a breaking story, more info as available). A rally named ‘Unite the Right’ has caused Virginia officials ahead of the rally to declare a state of emergency. Local police estimate 6000 people in attendance saying that clashes have erupted between opposing groups. The rally was designed to protect the statue of General Robert E Lee which the city officials have decided to remove from a city park. It is being reported that the groups on the Right included Civil War reenactors, Confederate heritage groups, militia groups and “alt-right activists”. White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis and KKK members were also there in force unfortunately. Counter protestors appear to be from multiple groups as well such as AntiFa, BLM ect. * Lake Berryessa, CA – The Canyon Fire is now 114 acres and 60% contained. Mandatory evacuations are now only advisory. * This weekend is the Perseid meteor shower. If you can get out and away from the city lights you will be in for a great show put on by the Universe. * The face of BAMN, Yyvette Felarca, is claiming self-defense in the clash against Neo-Nazis last year in the State capitol. This appears contradictory to the numerous interviews where she condones and calls for violence against ideas they do not agree with. -Warnings/ Advisories * There are no active watches, warnings or advisories -Weather (South Bay/ San Jose) * Sunrise - 0621hrs.

Local police estimate 6000 people in attendance saying that clashes have erupted between opposing groups. The rally was designed to protect the statue of General Robert E Lee which the city officials have decided to remove from a city park. It is being reported that the groups on the Right included Civil War reenactors, Confederate heritage groups, militia groups and “alt-right activists”. White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis and KKK members were also there in force unfortunately. - CA Firearms Laws: * New York Officials oppose Bill extending Concealed Carry across State lines. Want to be able to limit Rights of legal citizens so that they can better protect them. * Same tyranny as yesterday Thought of the day: Charlottesville, Virginia – The Right needs to distance itself fully and completely from the Neo-Nazis, KKK and White Supremacist groups on the fringes of the Alt-Right. These groups enflame the aggression and though they are allowed their free speech, frankly discredit the legitimate argument on the Right for Freedom of expression, speech, thought, the Constitution and protection of Veteran monuments (even Civil War era monuments that represent the history of this Country, good bad or indifferent). These groups that attach themselves to issues convenient to their hate rhetoric or allow them to violently engage groups that they hate are no better than Antifa, BAMN, Socialists or Communists. These hate groups do not practice the Constitutional ideologies and Rights of this Country for all Citizens any more than the extremist on the Left they battle. The groups that are not racists, Nazis or white supremacists that have shown up to this rally are now being smeared as associates and true believers, even if they are not. Why does that matter? Some of those groups are Threeper groups or militia groups, Constitutional Patriot groups. Some of those groups may be hate groups. Many (maybe most), just like at the battles of Berkeley, are probably not, they believe in the Constitution, in the right of Freedom of speech for all, not just the ones who are the strongest at the moment. That message will be lost now. Militia groups, threeper groups ect will be lumped together even more with association to hate groups and across the country, not just in the locale where this happens. The Press has no love for truth, they love the story, the story that is most inflammatory and causes the most division because that holds viewers. How do we do that? Education; write pieces like this to your local paper, groups and web pages. Stating the truth, that we are protecting Freedom of Speech even as we condemn racism, Nazis, ect. If you choose to go to rallies, only go and support those rallies that shun speakers that support Nazism or white supremacy. Be vocal! Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey

* Charlottesville, Virginia – It is being reported that the car that mowed down a group of pedestrians has killed one and injured 19. The driver is in custody.

* Charlottesville, Virginia – Update - It is being reported that the car that mowed down a group of pedestrians has killed one and injured 19. The driver is in custody. The internet swarmed about trying to identify the driver. First Joel Vangheluwe was accused until disproven by him still being able to tweet and provide an alibi as well as state that the car they had was sold years ago. The new candidate is James Alex Fields Jr. This has not been announced by Police or any credible source. This is the internet using its ability to get records of car license plates and ownership. There is not a lot available online about Mr. Fields. Developing Story * In the last hour – A helicopter that was monitoring the protests has apparently crashed killing the two people in the helicopter. It is unclear whether this is a police helicopter or not. It is also not clear what caused the helicopter to lose control and spiral into the ground. Developing story.
