The Feds Are Forced to Release January 6th Surveillance Footage and Narratives Crumble

 Via Billy

Why has the federal government been trying so hard to keep surveillance footage of January 6th under wraps? We may have an answer to that question if a set of newly released videos are any indication.

A judge ordered the videos be released against the wishes of the government prosecutors who claimed doing so would undermine national security. Of course, that makes no sense, and what’s on the videos runs counter to the chosen narrative.

Behold, the event that has been compared to the Civil War by the President of the United States.

Downtown Saigon in 1972: Same Same, but Different


What if all the core images, sounds and smells you know of a place were intact, but altered, tweaked or reworked the way songs can be? In some ways, this is what it feels like to gaze at photographs of a place you know intimately, but taken during a time when you never existed.

Many of the buildings, roads, landmarks, rivers and activities are the same, but everything is slightly different. Colors have shifted, architecture re-arranged, elements added or removed, and styles shaken up. Perhaps you would prefer this alternate version and wish it was the place you now occupied, or maybe it would engender a newfound appreciation for what you've come to consider the "original version."

This set of photographs taken in Saigon in 1972 includes many sights that we recognize today, including the Saigon Zoo, the Opera House, and Trần Hưng Đạo Street. But the visitors to them dress differently, current statues are nowhere to be seen, and bygone makes of cars fill the streets. The author of the photo collection, presumably an American serviceman, is only known by the Flickr user name Kemper14.

Immerse in a Serene Morning at Ngã Năm Floating Market

 

Floating markets haven’t completely disappeared from Vietnam’s commercial landscape.

Most tourism trips to Can Tho involve a stop at the floating market despite its dubious role nowadays as an actual trading hub. As bridges, roads and general infrastructure improvements are made throughout the Mekong Delta, trading on waterways has become somewhat less ideal. But while Can Tho’s plethora of land-based supply routes supported by modern grocery stores may have relegated its floating market to little more than an Instagram hotspot, elsewhere in the delta, a great amount of agricultural trading still takes place on the water.

During a trip to explore poverty relief efforts in Long My, Saigoneer took a side trip to the Ngã Năm floating market and discovered a vibrant trading center where farmers bring tubers, ducklings, mangos, jackfruits, pork, onions and rice to the river to sell. The goods sold wholesale then travel from the river up smaller estuaries and streams to be sold at small neighborhood markets, fulfilling the daily nutritional needs of an entire region.

The activities at Ngã Năm begin early, and by daybreak the water is filled with traders and shippers hoping to conduct their business before the menacing midday sun arrives. A woman sells piping hot bowls of noodles to the sellers who work up an appetite tossing bags of gourds and transferring jugs of water, while in the small riverfront town, vendors set up shop preparing breakfast and selling all sorts of essentials from clothing to condiments.

For a small fee we were able to rent a boat and travel up and down the river to observe the buying and selling. Nga Nam is not a popular tourist destination and the morning was spent watching people perform their routine shopping trips. As long as we didn’t get in the way of their transactions, people were happy to pose for photos, waving with mild bemusement that we were interested in their quotidian commercial activities.

World at War: 700 Yards Mayhem - British Sniper vs German Sniper - No4 MKI T vs High Turret!

 Via via Gun Boards

 
1944, Allies are pushing against Nazi Germany! British Snipers often are on the tip of the spear, leading attacks against Germans. So how did their main Sniper rifle, No.4 MK. I (T) work? I'm taking on 13 different size targets all the way from 100 to 700 Yards! Let's see what this rifle really can do! As a counter sniper I'm going to use German BYF High Turret Sniper!

Texas Forms Miles-Long Border Barrier from State Troopers and National Guard Vehicles

 Texas Department of Safety vehicles line up along the bank of the Rio Grande near an encampment of migrants, many from Haiti, near the Del Rio International Bridge, Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2021, in Del Rio, Texas. The U.S. is flying Haitians camped in a Texas border town back to their …

In addition to the barrier provided by law enforcement and Texas military vehicles, the governor also ordered the building of physical barriers along the river to stop the unrestricted flow of migrants. On Tuesday, Breitbart Texas observed several miles of border barrier built by the state where no physical barrier existed three months ago.

Governor Greg Abbott ordered the Texas Department of Public Safety and National Guard to use vehicles to create a miles-long barrier to stop the flow of mostly Haitian migrants from crossing the Rio Grande. The vehicle barrier, along with the recently constructed Texas border fencing, effectively blocked the illegal crossings and enabled Border Patrol officials to reduce the population of the Del Rio migrant encampment.

A good Southerner is hard to find?


Perhaps it was after watching yet another film depicting the South as irredeemably backwards and bigoted. Or perhaps it was after reading yet another round of commentaries denigrating Robert E. Lee because Lee was a traitor (so were the American revolutionaries, technically), a defender of a slave owning society (as most societies were before the nineteenth century), and ultimately a military failure and “loser” (weren’t Hannibal and Napoleon?). Whatever the cause, I confess I have recently started to grow frustrated with Flannery O’Connor.

What, you might ask, do Hollywood and historical revisionism have to do with one of the most talented and beloved of the South’s writers, who in 1972 won the National Book Award for fiction? Well, perhaps in a time less saturated with woke progressivist attempts to vilify most everything about Southern culture, not much. But in this era of infuriatingly irrational (and hypocritical) prejudice towards Dixie, one yearns for portrayals of her that, if unwilling to praise the South, at least avoid the condescending, unjust caricatures that now serve as conventional perceptions of her in American popular imagination. Dixie, I’m afraid, has been demonized.

The $3.5 trillion monster includes Biden’s obscene gifts to his union backers

 

 https://yournewsobsession.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/haitian-migrant-1392x928.jpg

Nonunion workers make up nearly 90 percent of the US workforce. President Joe Biden is giving them the shaft.

The massive $3.5 trillion budget bill Biden and Democratic lawmakers are trying to ram through Congress discriminates against nonunion workers, even forcing some of them to pay higher taxes than coworkers who joined the union.

Union membership in the United States has been declining for a half-century. Biden is bent on reversing the trend, using the federal government to rig the system in favor of organizers and to twist the arms of nonunion workers and employers.

The manufactured border crisis

https://nationalfile.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Del-Rio-Border-e1631891606254.jpg

In nearly 30 years of covering America's corrupted immigration and entrance policies, I can tell you definitively that every "border crisis" is a manufactured crisis. Caravans of Latin American illegal immigrants don't just form out of nowhere. Throngs of Middle Eastern refugees don't just amass spontaneously. Boatloads of Haitians don't just wash up on our shores by random circumstance.

All the world's a stage, and as I exposed in my most recent book, "Open Borders, Inc.," the world's migrants are nothing more than expedient tools to globalist elites, profit-maximizing corporations, self-aggrandizing religious and nonprofit groups, and criminal smuggling syndicates.

TV Asks for Stories of Unvaxxed Dying from COVID – Gets over 180K Responses of Vaccine Injured and Dead Instead

 Via 4Branch

 

The corporate media narrative that unvaccinated people are filling up the hospitals and dying from COVID is quickly falling apart, perhaps faster than they even expected.

WXYZ TV Channel 7 in Detroit asked their viewers on their Facebook Page last Friday to direct message them if they lost a loved one due to COVID-19 if they refused to get one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
