11/16/17 - 1040hrs Daily report, California State Militia

* Bay Area, CA: Rains and “winter” (sorry I grew up in the mid-west and lived in the Mountains of Colorado so I have to put that in quotes here) storms are causing flash floods and * Senator Al Franken is the latest of the hypocrites to be accused of sexual assault during a USO tour where he allegedly groped Leeann Tweeden. Also it seems that Joe Biden is finally being acknowledged for his sleazy and creepy behavior and even the Saint himself, former President Bill Clinton is starting to catch heat for his treatment of women. -Warnings/ Advisories (NOAA) * Winter Storm Warning: Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to Kings Canyon, Tulare County Mountains, Western Plumas County, Lassen Park, West Slope Northern Sierra Nevada, Western Siskiyou County, South Central Siskiyou County, North Central and Southeast Siskiyou County, Lassen-Eastern Plumas-Eastern Sierra Counties, Greater Lake Tahoe Area, Mono, Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to Kings Canyon, Tulare County Mountains, * Winter Weather Advisory: North Central and Southeast Siskiyou County, Eastern Sierra Slopes of Inyo County, * Wind Advisory: Surprise Valley California, * Flood Watch: Southeastern Mendocino Interior, Northwestern Mendocino Interior, Lassen-Eastern Plumas-Eastern Sierra Counties, Greater Lake Tahoe Area; Mono, Flood Advisory: Alpine; Amador; Calaveras; El Dorado; Nevada; Placer; Sacramento; San Joaquin; Sierra; Solano; Yolo Flood Watch: Mariposa, Madera, and Fresno County Foothills; Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to Kings Canyon, -Weather (South Bay/ San Jose) * Sunrise - 0649hrs.

In fact the group is returning to perhaps the elements that made it strongest. When not needing to hold ground and fight with armies, ISIS is much more capable at guerilla style attacks. The larger numbers of followers that they control means that these attacks are not small, one target attacks but can be even as big as towns and regions (Think of the Philippines attacks a few months ago that captured and held multiple cities almost overnight). Places such as Libya, Niger, and other African countries, the Sinai Peninsula, parts of Asia like the Philippines are all strongholds for ISIS. Making things more difficult is the degrees of separation between regional groups including tactics and probable targets. The threat of ISIS has not been removed though changed somewhat. We, as intelligent citizens, need to realize this battle is far from over and not let our politicians pull back the military from destroying ISIS. - CA Firearms Laws: * Same tyranny as yesterday …It’s going to get worse… Thought of the day: Hollywood and the Democratic Party seem to be the actual pits of depravity and filth they have been accusing others of for years. Now that doesn’t mean that the GOP is some holier than thou group, we all know they are not. Plus look at the worthless Tax bill the GOP came up with? Plus the GOP might as well be working as hard as the Democrats at stopping anything from getting done. Seems to me like a whole lot of house cleaning needs to start happening. Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey
