The Thomas Fire by Ventura is still the largest focus at the moment and is 237,500 acres/ 25% contained. * Washington, DC: The Mueller investigation appears to be more and more of a Democratic Hit squad as insider bias continues to be uncovered.

This includes improvements to underground facilities, modernizing the current arsenal and increasing the modern arsenal with low yield and very low yield warheads as well as strategic bombs. A DoD official told a media outlet the expansion is causing alarm and shows that Russia is looking for means and ways to get out of treaties that place various constraints on nuclear forces. Russia is also following a doctrine of deploying nuclear weapons in any war that they are involved in, though they have not used any yet. * North Korea: In what appears to be a reversal from the hard line of the Trump administration and even comments by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the State Department has stated that it is willing to sit down ‘face to face’ with the North Koreans without any preconditions. Sec Tillerson appears to be trying to find a way to at least get a conversation started with the rogue regime. - CA Firearms Laws: * Same tyranny as yesterday …It’s going to get worse… * HR 38 the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act – FPC has put together a great FAQ section on the Bill. Good information to have. It can be found here: * Oppose S 1915: The Federal Handgun Ban (similar is HR 2380) Thought of the day: Christmas Traditions: Christmas lights.

And then man discovered exterior Christmas lights and the neighborhood competition… er I mean spirit of decorating for the season. So here are a couple of videos to tempt you, challenge you or just get you into the Christmas spirit with some over the top Christmas lighting. Enjoy!
