* Barcelona & Cambrils, Spain – UPDATE - In Barcelona a van plowed through pedestrians in a popular tourist spot. 120 injured and 13 killed. The driver of the van is believed to have been 17 year old Moussa Oukabir. In Cambrilis a car was used to ram pedestrians killing 1 woman and injuring 5. Police then killed 5 of the suspected attackers in shoot outs. The attackers were wearing fake bomb vests and carrying knives and axes. Last Wednesday night, police confirmed that a house that blew up in Alcanar, was the location of a terrorist cell that was planning a much larger attack. The explosion was from butane gas canisters they were working with. The explosion likely forced the cell to move forward with the vehicle attack. An unknown number of the cell are still at large.

This story is breaking so expect changes to what is being reported. * San Jose, CA – 2 off-duty Oakland Firefighters were shot in the Japantown area of San Jose. 1 has died.

Suffice it to say that the lack of teaching Our Constitution and how our Government is supposed to operate has placed us in the position we are in today. What can I do? I can teach my children about Our history and the Constitution. I can demand that my school board adds curriculum to teach more about this. Oh you laugh because you say that won’t change anything? You are correct; if I am the only one it will do nothing. Will I be the only one? Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey
