Missing NDSU student – Thomas Gregory Bearson

Bearson, an 18-year-old NDSU freshman, last known contact was at 3:40 a.m. Saturday morning, according to police. His cellphone is currently not working.

Lt. Joel Vettel from the Fargo Police Department says police were contacted when Bearson did not show up for a scheduled visit back home in Sartell. University police searched for Bearson in his dormitory room but did not locate him.

Vettel said police canvassed the 800 block area of 14th Street North, the last known place where Bearson was seen.

Bearson was last seen wearing a baseball hat and a blue Sartell track and field shirt along with Khaki pants. Tom is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs approximately 155 pounds. He has blonde hair and blue eyes.

UPDATE I: Police search for missing NDSU student from Sartell.

A fellow student told The Forum earlier Monday he saw Bearson shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday, hours after the missing student tweeted that he was lost and needed a ride.

The last tweet from Bearson’s Twitter account was sent at 1:23 a.m. Saturday and reads, “dude it’s jake come pick us up.” It also reads, “We are so lost and we are going to die. Just get somebody.”

In an interview Monday, the recipient of the tweet, Cody Mead, also an NDSU student, said Bearson and “Jake” found a ride to Mead’s house in north Fargo after that tweet.

“Jake” refers to Mead’s roommate, Jake Wenzel, who went to high school with Bearson, Mead said. Mead met Bearson for the first time that night.

Early on Sept. 12, Bearson was arrested for driving under the influence and minor in possession. An officer pulled him over for driving west in an eastbound lane a few blocks from Reed Hall, according to court papers.

A breath test found that Bearson’s blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent. He failed one field sobriety test, and because of his poor balance at the time, two others were not given for safety reasons, court papers said.

 UPDATE II: On Monday, police expanded the search to the neighborhood where he was seen leaving a party around 3 a.m. Saturday.

Bearson tweeted he was lost and needed a ride.

NDSU says his cell phone appears to not be working anymore.

Fargo police, using canines, are searching the neighborhoods around campus. Firefighters will also search the Red River for any signs of the nursing student.

If you have seen Thomas Bearson or have any information regarding the missing NDSU freshman, please call NDSU police at 701-231-8998 or text 701-526-6006.

US and Colalition of 5 Arab Allies Begin Bombing Missions in Syria Against ISIS

 

Military operations have begun in Syria against ISIS.

As reported at FOX News, the United States and five Arab allies, Jordan, Saudia Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qater, have begun military operations in Syria against ISIS. The bombing campaign consisted of  airstrikes, bombings and Tomahawk cruise-missile attacks against the Islamic State.  The airstrikes focused on the city of Raqqa, the declared capital of ISIS’ self-proclaimed Islamic State, but also about 20 to 25 targets have been struck.

The United States, joined by five Arab allies, launched an intense campaign of airstrikes, bombings and cruise-missile attacks against the Islamic State and another militant group in Syria Monday night – marking the first U.S. military intervention in Syria since the start of that country’s civil war in 2011.

U.S. Central Command (Centcom) said in a statement released early Tuesday that 14 Islamic State targets were hit, including the group’s fighters, training camps, headquarters and command-and-control facilities, and armed vehicles. The operation involved a combination of fighter jets, Predator drones and Tomahawk missiles launched from the Red Sea and Persian Gulf.

The strikes “destroyed or damaged” multiple targets, according to the U.S. military, which reported “all aircraft safely exited the strike areas.”

The mission was not limited to hitting Islamic State positions. Centcom said that U.S. aircraft also struck eight targets associated with another terrorist group called the Khorasan Group, made of up Al Qaeda veterans. Those strikes, near the northwestern Syrian city of Aleppo, targeted training camps, a munitions production facility, a communication building and command-and-control facilities.

Centcom said the Khorasan Group was involved in “imminent attack plotting against the United States and Western interests.”

CNN: U.S. airstrikes hit ISIS inside Syria for first time

American jets began bombing ISIS targets in Syria early Tuesday, raising U.S. involvement in the war-torn country and sending a forceful message to the terror group.

The airstrikes focused on the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, a U.S. official told CNN, though other locations were hit as well.

At least 20 targets in an around Raqqa were hit, the opposition group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

They’re the first strikes against the terror group inside the country since President Barack Obama’s announcement this month that he was prepared to expand the American efforts beyond targets in Iraq.

All foreign partners participating in the strikes with the United States are Arab countries, a senior U.S. military official told CNN. Those nations are Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan.

Diplomatic sources told CNN that Qatar was also involved, though it was not clear whether Qatar actually conducted airstrikes itself.

Former IRS Official Lois Lerner Breaks Her Silence … “I Didn’t Do Anything Wrong.”

 

HEY LOIS, IF YOU DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG, THEN THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO REASON TO PLEA THE FIFTH.

In an interview with The Politico, an unapologetic Lois Lerner broke her silence and claims, “I didn’t do anything wrong.” PLEASE, just like a lib, always the victim. It is just a coincidence that the department that you were in charge of went after Tea Party and Conservative non-profit groups in an effort to marginalize them heading into the 2012 elections. It is just a coincidence that the IRS scandal was more than just two rogue agents. It is just a coincidence that the IRS scandal leads back to Washington, DC federal IRS offices. It is also another coincidence that your emails have gone missing and your Blackerberry as well. And of course it was also just a coincidence that when given an opportunity to provide testimony under oath to Congress that you have plead the fifth not once, but twice. Who are you kidding?  Yup, not a smidgen of corruption. Gee Lois, why would you need to plea the 5th  to protect yourself against self-incrimination, if you didn’t do anything wrong. HMM?

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS.

Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”

The portrait that emerges shows Lerner is, indeed, fierce, unapologetic and perhaps even tone-deaf when she says things that show her Democratic leanings. She had a quick temper and may have intimidated co-workers who could have helped her out of this mess. It’s easy to see how Republicans have seized on the image of a devilish figure cracking down on conservative nonprofits.

So were the emails destroyed, or do they exist and this has been nothing but an exercise in stonewalling.

UPDATE I: It would appear that the Federalist agrees with SM, “Sorry, Politico, But Lois Lerner Is Not A Victim … but the Politico would have you believe Lois Lerner is a “Hero. Servant. Brownie-baking puppy lover. Sister of the Blessed State.” Great minds think alike!

Three Afghan National Army Soldiers Missing From Cape Cod Base … Last Seen at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis, MA (Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada & Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar) (Update: Detained at US-Canada Border)

 

ABC News is reporting that 3 Afghanistan National Army soldiers are missing from their Cape Cod base in Massachusetts. The three soldiers arrived in the United States on September 11 for a training mission, Exercise Regional Cooperation. According to reports, they have gone missing after a trip to a shopping mall in Hyannis, MA. This is the second time in a week that Afghan security trainees in the United States have disappeared. The three men currently missing in Massachusetts are Afghanistan National Army Soldiers Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar.

Police and military officials were searching Sunday for three soldiers from the Afghanistan National Army who went missing during a training exercise at a Cape Cod military base.

The Afghan soldiers had been participating in a U.S. Central Command Regional Cooperation training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod, U.S. military officials said. They arrived at Camp Edwards on Sept. 11 and were last seen at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis.

The soldiers were reporting missing by base security personnel on Saturday night. They were identified as Major Jan Mohammad Arash, Captain Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Captain Noorullah Aminyar.

Base and exercise officials were working with local and state authorities to locate them. There is no indication the soldiers pose any threat to the public, military officials said.

The Massachusetts National Guard said that the three soldiers do not appear to pose any threat to the public. Really? What are they going to say? We have let three Afghan high ranking soldiers out of our sight and are wondering around America? The three men were senior military officers from Afghanistan and were cleared by the US State Department to participate in the exercise. Oh that just makes me oh so confident. How is it that we cannot keep tabs on anyone who comes to this country? Do you know how far it is from Quantico, VA to Buffalo, NY?

This is not the first reported case of Afghan nationals who have gone missing while undergoing a training program in the US. Two Afghan policemen who were in taking part in an intensive DEA training program in Quantico, Va., went missing while on a sightseeing trip last Thursday. They were found in Buffalo, NY, on Friday.

UPDATE I: Missing Afghan soldiers detained at Canada-U.S. border.

Three Afghan National Army officers who went missing during a training exercise at a Cape Cod military base were detained Monday at the U.S.-Canadian border, Massachusetts law enforcement officials said.

Massachusetts state police were notified that the three were being questioned by federal authorities at Rainbow Bridge, which connects Niagara Falls, N.Y. and Niagara Falls, Ont., said spokesman David Procopio, who did not have further details.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials in Niagara Falls said they didn’t have the men in custody. Messages left for Canada Border Services Agency weren’t immediately returned.

Arrest Warrant Issued for Jesse L. Matthew for Traffic Violation, Person of Interest in Case of Missing Hannah Graham

 

An arrest warrant has been issued for  Jesse L. “JL” Matthew, the person of interest in the disappearance of missing UVA student Hannah Graham. The arrest warrant is not for his connection with the case of missing Hannah Graham, but instead  for a traffic violation for reckless driving. Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said at a news conference Sunday that Virginia State Police have issued warrants for Jesse Matthew on a charge of misdemeanor reckless driving. Police Chief  Longo went on the say, “I believe Jesse Matthew was the last person she was seen with before she vanished off the face of the Earth because it’s been a week and we can’t find her. I’ve made no mistake about it. We want to talk to Jesse Matthew. We want to talk to him. We want to talk to him about his interaction with this sweet, young girl we can’t find.” 18 year old Hannah Elizabeth Graham has been missing since September 13, 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

An arrest warrant has been issued for a person of interest in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, but he is not being sought for anything to do with the case.

Charlottesville, Va., police said today they are looking for Jesse L. Matthew, 32, on two counts of reckless driving, because he sped away from the police station Saturday after showing up there and asking for a lawyer.

Police say Matthew was seen driving at a high rate of speed, before he evaded capture by authorities monitoring his whereabouts.

Matthew is still a “person with whom we would like to talk to about the whereabouts of Hannah Graham,” Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said.

ESPN’s Samantha Ponder Shreds Florida St QB Jameis Winston … “We’re Asking that You Don’t Lie, You Don’t Cheat, You Don’t Steal, and You Don’t Disrespect Women.”

 

ESPN’s Samantha Ponder rips Florida State QB Jameis Winston for his conduct and lack of character. During Saturday’s ESPN College Game Day, Samantha Ponder said what should be the obvious in what we expect not only from Jameis Winston, but from all  individuals, and not just college athletes.

“Here’s what I’m not buying. I’m not buying that the expectations are too high. Here’s what we’re asking from him: We’re asking that you don’t lie, you don’t cheat, you don’t steal, and you don’t disrespect women,” Ponder said. “And I know people want to say, ‘Oh, he’s naive and there’s some immaturity there.’ I just think we’re not giving him enough credit. He knows right from wrong. He understands that the things he’s done are wrong but he continues to make those same mistakes.”
