California Lake Mysteriously Runs Dry Overnight, Killing Thousands Of Fish
    Folsam Lake -- A Northern California reservoir ran dry overnight, killing thousands of fish and leaving residents looking for answers.
    While a $3.5 million drought safety net at Folsom Lake finishes, a lake in another part of the state is left high and dry.
    Thousands of fish lay dead in what used to be Mountain Meadows reservoir also known as Walker Lake, a popular fishing hole just west of Susanville. [...]
    At Folsom Lake, workers are finishing work on floating barges that would pump water to the city of Folsom and the prison if the lake gets too low for the water to flow through an intake valve. An insurance policy that may be put into use soon.

Betting on Rain
    Rep. McCarthy favors granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, many of whom live in California. A move toward amnesty will freeze in place all those in here illegally and will no doubt bring millions more north.
    There is a major hype going on that that El Nino will bring buckets of rain to California.
There is no rain forecast for California for the next five days. What if El Nino becomes El No No?
    Instead of amnesty could we see mandatory evacuation?
    Betting the future of America on a rainstorm has put us in a very bad place.
