CBS News 2 hours 38 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES — A third Southern California wildfire has broken out on the northern edge of Los Angeles, sweeping across 200 acres and forcing the closure of a major stretch of freeway. Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby said the fire in Santa Clarita started at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. CBS Los Angeles reports that officials named it the Rye Fire. Flames were burning in light to medium fuels amid wind gusts as much as 30 miles per hour, authorities said. The I-5 Freeway was closed in both directions due to the fire, CBS Los Angeles reported.

My Revolver Stopped Revolving

 

Revolvers fail, too. I feel like I’m starting to sound like a broken record at this point, but I’ll probably keep bringing it up until people stop spreading misinformation about revolvers being “100% reliable.” In the video below, I describe yet another revolver failure I recently encountered. Two of them, actually. And I’m not talking about the kind of problems you can fix in a couple of seconds on the firing line. I mean, “put it in a box and mail it to the men with tools” kind of problems.

LESSONS FROM SOUTHERLAND SPRINGS

Church shooting 5

When one of these events takes place it is imperative for us to learn from them should we hope to prevent or interdict the next one.  Sadly, this is rarely done to a true operational level.  It may be too soon to do this, but we have had three major events in the last three weeks.  I do not think it is too soon.  These points were brought to the discussion on my forum warriortalk.com by one of its members –

FACT 1:  Shooter visited the site five days prior to the attack.  This was probably a reconnaissance of the site.  We know that both terrorists as well as “crazy people” have done this prior to their initiation of attack.  Alternatively, he may not have decided to attack yet and was working up to it

LEARNING POINT: In today’s tech world ….

FACT 4:  Shooter was wearing body armor (type unknown) and a helmet.  Same situation in many other events.

Homeland Insecurity

November 9, 2017:

The Department  of  Homeland Security Bulletin advises of continuing threats to National Security.  The information is a reminder of the threats that Americans face. However, the Bulletin is sanitized. The Islamic Based Terrorist threat is not referenced.  Instead, the term “homegrown terror” is used.   Such word games deflect from the  grave threat that  America faces from the Islamic / Sharia threat, as well as communists, and others.  By branding the source of this terrorist ideology as being “grown in America”,   the element of causation is diverted to America itself. The true enemies who seek to destroy America  are given a  free pass to continue with their objective, the destruction of America.  Sharia law is a direct threat to America, our Constitution, and Bill of Rights.  Meanwhile, our Government continues to import terrorist individuals. The invasion is being conducted right under our noses, and the enemies are being placed throughout the United States.  Activation, the time and place, is left for the enemies to decide. And you, and your children, are the targets.

Be alert and vigilant. Be prepared to defend your family. And yes,  that means lawful use of firearms for defense. Moreover, get some basic medical training.

The terrorists, the enemy within,  are:

Targeting public places and events.

They make use of easy to use tools. For example:  use of vehicle ramming, small arms, straight-edged blades or knives, homemade explosives, and poisons or toxins.

They  use battlefield experiences to pursue new technologies and tactics, such as unmanned aerial systems and chemical agents.

They are targeting commercial aviation and air cargo, including with concealed explosives.

Of course, Islamic terrorists, and others, have for years promoted “Lone wolf” attacks. But, it is routine that when an attack happens, we, the “sheeple”, are told that the attackers “motive” is unknown, and that no known link to a formal terrorist group has been found.  This sounds like the same type of propaganda ministry that Hilter used to lie to the Germans about how well the invasion of Russia was going during WWII.
