11/29/17 - 1008hrs Daily report, California State Militia

Reno, NV: The gunman that opened fire from the 8th floor of a high-rise condo is dead. SWAT teams engaged him after he took a hostage and barricaded himself in and then opened fire on the Reno streets below the condos. No one else was hurt in the attack. * North Korea: North Korean authorities claimed that they now have the ability to hit any city in the U.S. after another launch of a ballistic missile test yesterday. * NBC: Matt Lauer is the latest to be fired for “inappropriate workplace behavior”. * Bali, Indonesia: - UPDATE – After being closed for three days due to eruptions, the Bali Airport has reopened. While it is good that the airport can re-open, experts and authorities say that the extreme danger has not passed for the volcano. Mt Agung is about as close to a full eruption without going off as a volcano can be. The cauldron appears to be full with very lively magma, smoke plumes continue to erupt, sometimes 13,100 feet into the sky. Indonesian authorities have raised the state of alert to its highest level and expanded the exclusion zone around the volcano. Authorities have ordered 100,000 people to evacuate the exclusion zone but so far only about 40,000 have. -Warnings/ Advisories (NOAA) * Beach hazards Statement (High surf, high Rip currents, large Northwest swell): Coastal North Bay Including Point Reyes National Seashore; Northern Monterey Bay; San Francisco; San Francisco Peninsula Coast; Southern Monterey Bay and Big Sur Coast * High Surf advisory: San Luis Obispo County Central Coast; Santa Barbara County Central Coast, Coastal Del Norte; Mendocino Coast; Northern Humboldt Coast; Southwestern Humboldt -Weather (South Bay/ San Jose) * Sunrise - 0702hrs. Sunset - 1651hrs. * Sunny * Highs hitting 66 - lows toward 44 * No Allergy Alert from Trees. No allergy alert from grass, none for weeds * Mostly sunny with some clouds and then sunny starting Wednesday through Friday. Temps will be mid to lower 60s for the week. Next chance of showers will be next Saturday but that looks like it is moving more towards Sunday and the chance of precipitation has dropped greatly. - Ring of Fire * 2.7 SSW of Coalinga, 2.8 E of Portola, 3.2 N of Laytonville, CA. 5.2 SSW of Agrihan, Northern Mariana Islands. 5.7 S of Paracas, Peru. - Civil Unrest/ Terrorism * Sinai, Egypt: An interesting side development to the horrible mosque attack that killed over 300 including 27 children last week is that no group has claimed responsibility. Western analysts are attempting to find the meaning in this. There were multiple witness accounts of the black flag of ISIS being carried by the attackers as well as previous demands from IS militants that the mosque ceases practicing what ISIS deems blasphemy. Yet the group which is so quick to claim responsibility for every attack around the world has been silent on this. There is speculation that perhaps the local ISIS group went too far even for ISIS… I’d really need a better explanation for that one and I don’t have it for myself or to give you… so it could also be a division or rift between cells and the Centralized Command. - CA Firearms Laws: * Same tyranny as yesterday …It’s going to get worse… * National Reciprocity Act to be heard tomorrow. Support HR 38, Send support now: https://www.firearmspolicy.org/support_hr_38_concealed_carry_reciprocity * Oppose HR 4168. This is called the bump stock loophole. Basically the problem is that the phrase “accelerate substantially the rate of fire of a semiautomatic weapon” opens the door for bans on triggers, springs and basically anything that could improve a semi-auto firearm. https://www.firearmspolicy.org/oppose_hr_4168_the_gop_gun_grab Thought of the day: When I was growing up my father used to tell me “Don’t do anything in your life that lets the government have more control over it. Once they have that power it’s really hard to get control of your life back.” Now to be fair, my father was speaking about local police and authorities to a teenager who was maybe a few steps over the line on the wild side. But the truth of his statement rings louder and truer the more you look at the spider web that the government creates to “help” people. The problem is that any attempt of self-improvement means almost a complete loss of all support. So the idea that we “help people and families” get back on their feet is getting more and more perverted. Before I go too much farther into that, let me admit that I am OK with some type of social safety net to help individuals and families in hard times. I don’t think we do that correctly now. I also think there is equal blame for those stuck in generational welfare on the individual as well or even more so on the government institutions that have been put in place. The safety nets that we have now are like an oasis in the desert. It provides immediate relief to the threat but no way to leave it. If the traveler has no way to carry the water, they cannot leave the oasis without a full plan in place. If they try to leave and help themselves but do not find other water or civilization they will perish, perhaps not even being able to find the way back to the oasis. These are the nets the government has created. Those people we don’t want on welfare can’t leave welfare very easily. They can barely get a job that pays as much as they are receiving, but when they do they lose their medical, they lose housing assistance ect. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of people that game the system or are lazy, I’m not supporting them. What I am saying is Our system is not making it easier for people to get back on their feet….and ultimately that is what we want…. More people responsible for themselves instead of government being responsible for them. Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey http://www.cal-militia.com/contact-us.html
