College Republican Assaulted in Minnesota on Debate Night
By Walter Hudson September 28, 2016
A female College Republican was assaulted on Monday night at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. She was wearing Trump campaign apparel on her way to a gathering of presidential debate watchers.
The Minnesota Federation of College Republicans issued this statement on Tuesday:
A cursory search at the time of this writing finds no mention of the assault anywhere in the mainstream media. We can be assured that, had the victim been a Hillary supporter, it would be a trending national story.
Poor Gustavus Adolphus [The Great], spinning in his chilly marble sarcophagus.
(Maybe it’s all for the best that his wife kept his heart for herself, chose not to inter it with all the other bits and pieces of him.)
US awards $109 million contract for the purchase of 433 Humvees to Afghan forces (khaama, Sep 28, 2016)
“The United States Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded a contract worth $109 million for the purchase of 433 Humvee vehicles to the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF).
The contract was awarded to AM General by the Department of Defense (DoD) as efforts are underway to boost capabilities of the Afghan forces as they face a resurgent Taliban.
“AM General, South Bend, Indiana, was awarded a $108,766,885 modification (P00023) to foreign military sales contract (Afghanistan) W56HZV-15-C-0155 for 433 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles,” (DoD) said in a statement.
DoD further added that “Work will be performed in Mishawaka, Indiana, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 29, 2017. Fiscal 2015 other procurement funds in the amount of $108,766,855 were obligated at the time of the award. Army Contracting Command, Warren, Michigan, is the contracting activity.”
This comes DoD awarded a contract t:o AM General for the maufacture and delivery of 1,673 Humvees to the Afghan forces earlier in August this year.

Vehicle manufacturing will commence in August at the company’s military assembly plant in Mishawaka, Indiana, and is scheduled to be completed by 29 July, 2017.
The delivery of the vehicles could further boost the protection of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) who are full lead of the security responsibilities with the conclusion of the coalition forces combat mission since last year…”
Syrian rebels get new rockets from foreign states – commander (reuters, Sep 28, 2016)
“BEIRUT, Sept 28 (Reuters) – Foreign states have given Syrian rebels surface-to-surface Grad rockets of a type not previously supplied to them in response to a major Russian-backed offensive in Aleppo, a rebel commander told Reuters on Wednesday.
The Grad rockets with a range of 22 km and 40 km have been supplied in “excellent quantities” and will be used on battlefronts in Aleppo, Hama and the coastal region, rebel commander Colonel Fares al-Bayoush said.
While Grad missiles have previously been supplied to rebels, Bayoush said it was the first time this particular type had been delivered. Each salvo contains 40 rockets, he said, without giving further details. The rebels had previous stocks of the rocket captured from army stores, he added.
Bayoush added that there was as yet no sign of the rebels being supplied with anti-aircraft missiles they have demanded.
A video posted on YouTube on Monday showed Free Syrian Army rebels firing Grad missiles at government positions near Aleppo. Bayoush confirmed the weapons being fired in the video were newly supplied.
Rebel groups fighting under the Free Syrian Army banner have received military aid from states opposed to President Bashar al-Assad via a U.S.-backed coordination centre in Turkey.
The rebellion’s foreign backers have previously supplied Russian-made Grad rockets to the rebels: rockets with a 20 km (12 mile) ranges were delivered earlier this year in response to an earlier offensive in Aleppo, rebels told Reuters at the time.

Swedish churches are AIDING migrants hiding from authorities amid asylum crack down
New figures show that more than 12.000 failed asylum applicants are wanted by the police after disappearing of the radar.
And astonishingly, the churches are helping the in-hiding migrants with food and medicine, according to SVT.
Deacon in Linköping, Anna Ramén, said she estimated that 500 to 1000 failed asylum-seekers have gone under ground in her area alone.
She said: “Many people who live this way are living under a lot of pressure and stress, they don’t know what will happen.
“The help we can offer is not enough [because] there are so many.”
The Deacon added that despite aiding the migrants hiding from the Swedish authorities, they were not helping them stay in the country.
It is illegal for any foreigner to remain in the country after having an application from asylum denied.
However, Ms Ramén added that laws and regulations should be there to help people.
She said: “We have laws and regulations that [are in place] to help people, but sometimes these laws and regulations also topple people
“That people lose their human dignity is not consistent with our Christian faith.”
Churches in Malmo and Gothenburg have also provided aid to migrants hiding to escape deportation.
The revelation comes as a poll revealed the famously liberal Swedes have turned against migrants after being pushed to breaking point in the struggle to cope with the “totally unprecedented” influx of refugees.
The study claimed the previously welcoming country has now reached its tolerance limit following months of migrant violence, sexual assaults and the death of asylum worker Alexandra Mezher in January this year.
In 2015 alone Sweden, with a population of 9.5million, received over 160,000 asylum applications and the country is expected to take as many as 190,000 refugees, or two per cent of the population, before the end of 2016.
A bunch of Churches in the US help illegal aliens hide from immigration when the President lets the enforcement personal do their jobs.
House postpones vote on former Clinton aide
(CNN) – The former aide to Hillary Clinton, who helped set-up her private email during her tenure as secretary of state, got a pass on Capitol Hill.
House Republican leaders have postponed a vote to hold Bryan Pagliano in contempt of Congress until after the election. The House Oversight Committee approved a resolution last week, which held Pagliano in contempt for failing to testify about the incident before Congress.
Apparently, Congress has other business to tend to before the end of its session.
Lawmakers are moving quickly on all planned votes in order to leave Washington this week to return to the campaign trail ahead of the November election
