03/02/18 - 1046hrs Daily report, California State Militia

* Central Michigan University, MI: -UPDATE- 2 individuals that were shot were not students but believed to be the parents of the gunman and the situation believed to be a domestic dispute. Both individuals are deceased after being shot in a University residence hall. The gunman, James Eric Davis, Jr. is still at large and is considered armed and dangerous. He was apparently brought to a local hospital the night before for what may have been drug-related causes and then released this morning. The University and local schools and businesses remain in a ‘secure mode’ while police search for the suspect. –END UPDATE- Reports of gunfire in a campus building and at least 2 people shot/ injured. The shooter is still at large and is described as “a black man, short hair and wearing yellow-colored jeans, a blue hoodie with a weapon tucked in his belt.” Students have been ordered to shelter in place. I am assuming that the campus is on lockdown but have not seen an official word on that. University police have confirmed that they are monitoring the situation but declined to provide further details. Developing story so expect it to change. * California: If you haven’t noticed, the weather is a little wet and cold. If you are in an area or traveling to an area that is susceptible to snow, keep up with local forecasts. There is the potential for extreme winter weather in many parts of California. * Washington, DC: The tariffs proposed by President Trump are affecting everything from stocks to talk show hosts to foreign countries. As President Trump tweeted “trade wars are good” other countries began to weigh options for their own tariffs against U.S. goods including the EU as a block. The up or downside of this will likely not truly be known for months to years. -Warnings/ Advisories (NOAA) * Winter Weather Advisory: Southeastern Mendocino Interior, Central Siskiyou County, South Central Siskiyou County, Western Siskiyou County, White Mountains of Inyo County, Riverside County Mountains, Kern County Mountains, Santa Barbara County Mountains, * Winter Storm Warning: Del Norte Interior; Northern Humboldt Interior; Southern Humboldt Interior; Southwestern Humboldt, Northern Trinity; Southern Trinity, Northeastern Mendocino Interior; Northwestern Mendocino Interior, Lassen-Eastern Plumas-Eastern Sierra Counties, Greater Lake Tahoe Area, Mono, Burney Basin, Eastern Shasta County; Clear Lake, Southern Lake County; Motherlode; Mountains Southwestern Shasta County to Northern Lake County; Northeast Foothills, Sacramento Valley; Shasta Lake Area, Northern Shasta County; West Slope Northern Sierra Nevada; Western Plumas County, Lassen Park, South Central Siskiyou County, Western Siskiyou County, Eastern Sierra Slopes of Inyo County, San Bernardino County Mountains, Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to Kings Canyon; Tulare County Mountains, Los Angeles County Mountains excluding the Santa Monica Range, * Blizzard Warning: Mono, * Flash Flood Watch: Los Angeles County Mountains excluding the Santa Monica Range; Los Angeles County San Fernando Valley * Flood Advisory: Fresno; Madera; Mariposa; Tulare, * Beach Hazards Statement: Coastal Del Norte; Northern Humboldt Coast; Southwestern Humboldt, Mendocino Coast * Wind Advisory: Central Siskiyou County, Antelope Valley, Death Valley National Park; Owens Valley; Western Mojave Desert, Eastern Mojave Desert, Including the Mojave National Preserve; Morongo Basin, * High Surf Advisory: Coastal North Bay Including Point Reyes National Seashore; Northern Monterey Bay; San Francisco; San Francisco Peninsula Coast; Southern Monterey Bay and Big Sur Coast, San Luis Obispo County Central Coast; Santa Barbara County Central Coast -Weather (South Bay/ San Jose) * Sunrise - 0638hrs.

He was planning attacks on Big Ben and the Tower Bridge as well as planned to use guns and a vehicle packed with explosives to hit targets such as the Queen’s Guard and Westfield shopping center. He recruited children as young as 11 from the Ripple Road mosque in Barking, east London. Though not having teaching credentials, he had access to over 250 children at madrassa and 2 east London schools over the last 5 years. * Syria: Bombing and artillery strikes continue in Ghouta with the emphasis being on Eastern Ghouta. Death Toll is over 600 civilians since the offensive started and at least 20 civilians today. A ceasefire for five hours a day has not seen a single civilian leave the area. The SAA Tiger forces (Pro-Government Syrian Special Forces) are making gains in eastern Ghouta capturing orchards, farms and factories. They also captured an old Army base. *North: The Turkish air force has hit 2 different positions of pro-government Syrian fighters in Afrin. At least 18 Syrian government soldiers were killed and up to 20 more are missing. This marks a major escalation of warfare between Turkey and Syria. Turkish and FSA ground forces continue to slowly move in on Afrin with airstrikes supporting the village to village fighting. YPG forces claimed to have killed 56 Turkish backed militants Thursday. *East: No updates for actions in the last 24hrs. - CA Firearms Laws: * Same tyranny as yesterday …It’s going to get worse… * Defeat Bill AB 1872 – It essentially says that even more government employees are exempt from CA Hand Gun Roster… You can use FPC’s document here to start and you might want to let Republican Assembly member Randy Voepel know how you feel also.

Miguel Santiago 916-319-2053 Thought of the day: “So numerous indeed and so powerful are the causes which serve to give a false bias to the judgment, that we, upon many occasions see wise and good men on the wrong as well as on the right side of questions…This circumstance, if duly attended to, would furnish a lesson of moderation to those who are ever so thoroughly persuaded of their being in the right in any controversy.” (Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist No. 1) Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey
