11/21/17 - 1053hrs Daily report, California State Militia

* California: US District Judge William Orrick issued a permanent block to President Trump’s Executive order to defund Sanctuary Cities. Interestingly it does note that Congress controls the purse strings and not the President. What it doesn’t acknowledge is that the Feds are responsible for immigration and not States and especially not cities. What does this all mean? We will see some very interesting moves as the President and DOJ move to uphold the order. Their argument is that they are upholding and enforcing existing law. * San Francisco, CA: 11 members of the Hells Angels have been arrested by the FBI for organized criminal activity including murder, murder conspiracy, racketeering and other charges. 8 of the arrested were from the Sonoma County Chapter of The Hells Angels. A Hells Angels Clubhouse in Fresno was also raided. * CBS: The network sacked Charlie Rose over allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior. * Zimbabwe: President Mugabe resigns. The “President” of Zimbabwe had been in power for 37 years. He was forced out by a combination of impeachment hearing from an emboldened parliament backed by military support. -Warnings/ Advisories (NOAA) * Wind Advisory: Central Siskiyou County, Modoc County -Weather (South Bay/ San Jose) * Sunrise - 0654hrs. Sunset - 1454hrs. * Partly cloudy – Very small chance of rain and scattered showers * Highs hitting 76 - lows toward 54 * No Allergy Alert from Trees. No allergy alert from grass, none for weeds * It will be in the lower to upper 70s through the week. Thanksgiving will be 73 and partly cloudy. In fact, the whole week will be partly cloudy. Next chance of storms has moved out until late Saturday night into Sunday. - Ring of Fire * 2.8 SE of Little Lake, 2.9 NNE Soledad, CA. 5.2 SSE of Sinabang, Indonesia. 5.1, 5.2 ENE of Tadine, New Caledonia. 6.0 SE of Mata-Utu, Wallis and Futuna. 5.3 SW of Mapastepec, Mexico. - Civil Unrest/ Terrorism * Tuz Khurmatu, Iraq: A suicide bomber blew himself up by detonating a truck bomb. 32 dead and 75 wounded. * Mubi, Nigeria: A suicide bomber attacked a mosque, killing at least 50 people. While not confirmed, the attack is similar to Boko Haram attacks. This area was also controlled by Boko Haram until they were driven out in 2014. Boko Haram generally uses woman and children, forcing them to be suicide bombers, for the attacks. This bomber was believed to be a teenage boy. - CA Firearms Laws: * Same tyranny as yesterday …It’s going to get worse… Thought of the day: We do have shootings here in this Country but if we look at the numbers, the real circumstances it becomes quickly apparent that things like the Las Vegas and Texas Church shooting are rare (though we should be finding ways to stop those individuals as early as possible). I hear citizens argue that had those persons not have guns; the death toll would have been much lower. If all they had was a knife, they couldn’t kill 50 people (please don’t send me links to every carnage created with a knife, I know it’s possible). Watching Iraq, Africa and now Europe, what is clear is this: Iraq, Africa, both of these places have a wide assortment of firearms available…even things like RPGs. Europe, for the most part, does not. What though is being used even though weapons exist? Explosives, vehicles, women, children brainwashed and threatened into carrying out the deed…. Anything that can kill people. Why? Because those that want to kill will find the most effective way to deliver that atrocity as well as the terror they want to create. Notice how this has moved into Europe. Yes, they still use guns but more and more they move to trucks, explosives… everyday items that can kill more in a moment than a gun. But interestingly…one gun in the right, trained hands can stop or limit any of these attacks. Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey
