The Real Reason Trump Withheld Military To UKraine: Is A Favor To Putin?

The Real Reason Trump Withheld Military Aid To UKraine Is A Favor To Putin?

 

This is just an oped on my part, I am only giving you my opinion about this issue. This is something that I have thought to be the truth ever sense the Ukraine story broke. As most of the world knows President Putin of Russia took the State of Crimea by military force from the country of UKraine a few years ago and Russian forces have been at war with the nation of UKraine in the east of that country ever sense. So, of course Mr. Putin does not want the US selling military arms to the nation of UKraine because those weapons are being used against his Russian soldiers on the battle field. I simply believe that it only makes sense that Mr. Putin wanted Mr. Trump to freeze that weapons sale to the Ukrainian government. As most of the world realizes, including the Republicans in the US Congress and Senate, Mr. Trump is nothing but a Putin Patsy. Now because of all of Mr. Trumps habitual lying he has found himself on the impeachment hot seat, it isn’t like he can actually tell the truth about his collusion with the Russian government to undermine an American Ally. These are just my thoughts, right, wrong or only somewhat correct, or not. What are you thoughts on this matter?

Indian Army’s M777 regiment to get 3 made-in-India guns

Of the 18 howitzers with which the army is raising its first regiment, 15 are being supplied by BAE Systems and three by its Indian partner Mahindra Defence, said the second official, also on condition of anonymity.

The Indian Army’s first regiment of ultra-light howitzers is expected to consist of 15 ready-built M777s supplied by the US, and three locally built guns that will represent the country’s Make in India push for military hardware, two officials familiar with the move said.

The howitzers will be delivered to the army by the year-end, enabling the force to raise the first of its planned seven M777 regiments early next year, said one of the officials cited above who asked not to be named.

India ordered 145 howitzers from the US for $750 million in November 2016. As part of the deal, M777 manufacturer BAE Systems will supply 25 ready-built howitzers and the remaining 120 guns are being built locally in collaboration with Mahindra Defence Systems Limited under the Modi government’s Make in India initiative.

Of the 18 howitzers with which the army is raising its first regiment, 15 are being supplied by BAE Systems and three by its Indian partner Mahindra Defence, said the second official, also on condition of anonymity.

A spokesperson for Mahindra Defence declined to comment.

“The parallel induction of imported howitzers and the locally assembled ones serves the army’s interests. The rate of production will be higher and delivery faster under such an arrangement. Also, if there are any issues with the howitzers, the army can quickly reach out to the original equipment manufacturer and the Indian partner,” said Lieutenant General Subrata Saha (retd), who was the army’s deputy chief when the M777 deal was inked three years ago. The army is likely to get all the 145 howitzers by the end of 2021.

Saha also said that the M777s were an important part of the army’s field artillery rationalisation plan (FARP) as the guns were designed for flexible deployment in mountainous terrain.

The 155 mm/39-caliber howitzers can be sling-loaded to Boeing CH-47F (I) Chinook helicopters and swiftly deployed to high-altitude areas to provide accurate artillery fire support. India ordered 15 Chinook helicopters from the US for $1.18 billion in September 2015. Six of them have already been delivered.

The army is preparing to deploy its new M777s in eastern Arunachal Pradesh and the howitzers could prove to be a game-changer in the sector due to their tactical mobility, as reported by HT on October 7.

The howitzers have a range of 24-30 km.

The ~50,000-crore FARP lays down the road map for inducting new 155mm weaponry, including tracked self-propelled guns, truck-mounted gun systems, towed artillery pieces and wheeled self-propelled guns. The plan seeks to equip 169 artillery regiments with a mix of nearly 3,000 guns over the next eight to 10 years.

The M777s were the first artillery guns to be ordered after the Bofors scandal unfolded in the late 1980s. These howitzers have superior tactical mobility as they are made from titanium and aluminum alloys and weigh only 4,218 kg, which is half the weight of conventional artillery guns deployed in the northern and eastern sectors.

Apart from the M777s, some of the other Make in India projects include local production of AK-203 assault rifles and K9 VAJRA-T artillery guns.

The child was seated in the back of a car being driven by the baby’s stepmother when the woman reported that she heard shots being fired in the area.

The woman drove for a few blocks before turning around and realizing that her car had been shot and the baby had been hit by four bullets that penetrated the vehicle: once in the head, once in the chest, and twice in the back according to ABC’s Philadelphia station WPVI.

The child was then rushed to Einstein Medical Center where they were listed in critical condition. Police did not confirm whether the child was a boy or a girl.

Police canvassed the crime scene looking for shell casings and appealing for witnesses to come forward who heard shots in the area. As of now, no physical evidence has been found from where the crime occurred.

Only a few blocks away about an hour before the 11-month-old child was shot, police reported that three men were injured in a triple shooting.

Police confirmed to WPVI that a 28-year-old man was shot in the stomach, a 41-year-old man was shot in

the back and a 35-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the thigh. The three men are all expected to survive and are listed in stable condition.

It is unknown if the two incidents are related but police are investigating that possibility. No arrests have been made in either one of the cases.

San Francisco Board Of Supervisors Declares NRA Domestic Terrorist’s

SAN FRANCISCO BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DECLARES NRA A DOMESTIC TERRORIST ORGANIZATION, URGES OTHER CITIES, STATES AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO DO SAME

San Francisco’s legislative body has challenged other American cities and states to follow its lead and formally condemn the National Rifle Association (NRA).

The Californian city’s board of supervisors passed a resolution on Tuesday officially labeling the gun rights’ group a domestic terrorist organization.

District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani, whose district includes the Marina and Presidio, wrote the declaration stating that the NRA “spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence.”

It said the NRA “musters its considerable wealth and organizational strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.”

“All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence,” the declaration read.

Stefani was inspired to write the declaration after the mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festivalon July 28, in which a gunman killed three people before shooting himself.

“The NRA has it coming to them, and I will do everything that I possibly can to call them out on what they are, which is a domestic terrorist organization,” she told Fox affiliate KVTU.

She referred to other mass shootings that took place in quick succession, including in Dayton, Ohio, El Paso in Texas and Odessa, also in Texas.

“People are dying every day in this country, and doing nothing is not an option, and that is what the NRA continues to do,” she added.

City Hall passed the resolution unanimously and called on the city and county of San Francisco to “take every reasonable step to limit … entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business” with the NRA, according to SF Gate.

Newsweek has contacted the NRA for comment.

In a statement provided to Fox, it described the move as a “ludicrous stunt” which was undertaken to “distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime.

“The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans,” it added.

This week, the NRA criticized Walmart’s decision to end handgun sales, stop sales of certain types of ammunition and ask customers to not openly carry firearms.

The move came after the shooting at one of its stores in El Paso, Texas, which left 22 people dead.

“It is shameful to see Walmart succumb to the pressure of the anti-gun elites. Lines at Walmart will soon be replaced by lines at other retailers who are more supportive of America’s fundamental freedoms,” the NRA said (via The Hill).

Here is my narrative on the Midland/Odessa Texas mass shooting

Here is my narrative on the Midland/Odessa Texas mass shooting

 

Earlier today as most of you know there was another mass shooting in west Texas, this one in the sister cities of Midland and Odessa. The last figures I heard was 7 dead and 24 wounded including 3 wounded Police Officers. What has gotten into the media is that the 36 year old man who did the shooting had gotten fired about two hours before the shooting started. It is said that he came into work yesterday morning in a very bad mood and he ended up getting fired.  The shooter and his boss called 9-1-1 after he left the building complaining about each other.

 

Now here is my thoughts on how these events probably happened. The man was pulled over by a Texas State Trooper for failure to use his signal lights about two hours after he had gotten fired. The man started shooting at the Officer with a AR-15 assault rifle which is a very expensive weapon. I believe that he went home and got the weapon after being fired, it only makes sense that he would not have had it in his pickup truck as there is no place in a pickup to conceal such a weapon and he would not have wanted it to just be laying in the seat in plain view for the reason of it being stolen. You don’t just leave an expensive weapon like that one in a location where someone could just knock out a window and steal it. So it is my belief that he went home after getting fired and got his AR at that time. If I had to bet on something I would bet that he was on his way back to his former employers to kill his former boss and anyone else that he didn’t happen to like there at the business but he got pulled over first before he could get there and that is when the shooting started. I believe that the Trooper pulling him over saved the shooters former boss and other folks at that business otherwise we would have been hearing about a “workplace” mass shooting instead of the one that did happen. I am just saying that what I am saying here in this letter to you tonight is what I believe is quite logical, what would have happened and what did happen. Could I be wrong? Of course, but I do believe what I am saying is the logical answer. But, we may never know being the man was killed in a shootout with the Police.

Texas mass shooter was fired from job hours before deadly rampage

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF THE NEW YORK POST)

 

Texas mass shooter was fired from job hours before deadly rampage

The Texas madman who went on a mobile shooting spree had been fired from his job just hours before his rampage — and had previously failed a background check, according to new reports.

Seth Ator, 36, had been axed from his trucking job a few hours before he killed seven and injured 22 in a spree in Odessa that started with a routine traffic stop on Saturday, authorities told the New York Times.

Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke did not mention the firing at a press briefing Sunday, instead insisting there were “no definitive answers as to motive or reasons at this point.”

Ator used an “AR-type weapon” in his attack, and police say they are still investigating how he got it — especially in light of a revelation by state Rep. Tom Craddick, who said Ator had previously failed a background check, according to the Midland Reporter-Telegram.

No details were given as to what caused him to fail.

Ator first opened fire at state troopers who pulled him over in his gold Toyota pickup truck for a minor signaling infraction along a stretch of I-20 near Midland, Texas, on Saturday.

He then peeled off, firing indiscriminately out of the truck as he floored it toward Odessa, authorities said.

Along the way, he killed a Postal Service worker and hijacked her mail truck, continuing the spree, officials said.

He made his last stand in the parking lot of an Odessa movie theater, where he was killed in a shootout with cops.

A shooting left five people dead and many more injured in Odessa on Saturday.

Officials say the shooting started just after 3 p.m. when DPS Troopers tried to pull over a vehicle along I-20 at mile marker 131.

That’s when the driver reportedly pointed a rifle at the rear window of the car and began firing his weapon.

A DPS Trooper and civilians were shot on the interstate.

According to OPD, the suspect shot at civilians on East Loop 338 and I-20 before they stole a U.S. Postal Service vehicle and continued the shooting spree.

The shootings continued along State Highway 191 until the suspect stopped at the Cinergy Movie Theater.

At the theater, the suspect shot an Odessa police officer and a Midland police officer before he was killed.

A total of 21 people were injured in the shooting and five people were killed.

13 victims were taken to Medical Center Hospital for treatment. One of the victims passed away at the hospital. Another, a baby under the age of two, was transferred to another hospital for treatment.

Of the remaining victims, seven were in critical condition, two people were in serious condition and two were treated and released.

MCH states that its blood supply is okay.

The Odessa Regional Medical Center treated a total of six victims. Four have been released from the hospital while two remain in critical condition.

As of Sunday night officials have not released the names of any of the victims as they work to notify next of kin.

The suspect in the shooting has not been identified. Authorities say he was a white male in his 30s.

Officials have shared what you can do if you’re looking for friends and family following Saturday’s shooting.

A family reunification center has been established at the Ector County Annex building at 1010 East 8th Street in Odessa.
