Saigon January 27, 2017

Should win Gold Medal of the decade.  From newspaper, hence poor quality.

 Water reservoir going up.

They did all that in about an hour.  No plastic ones here.

Can't even remember why I took this. :)

A/C outside on this little street and it isn't even air conditioned inside!

Excellent peanuts here. Has *Tet greeting added. 

I can't find a video of the Vietnamese girl who taught English on AFVN daily.  Help!?

Watering Tet plants.

His handmade AK.  He made a soccer ball that I thought was real. :)


$53 for a doctor's visit, EKG and medicine.  This is the new clinic of Columbia, an American hospital which was built in 1999.  Then it was $20 for a third world doctor and $40 for an American.  Had a Filipino one back then and a Vietnamese one this time who spoke flawless, non-accented 'American'! :)  

Dear Mr. Brock Townsend,

It's great to know that you have five Vietnamese daughters.

You blood pressure is currently pretty low. I think you should discontinue Hydrochlorothiazide and monitor your blood pressure daily. 

I hope you will get well soon. Please contact me if you have any questions. Have a nice day!

Best regards, 

Dr. Trinh Phan.

A Christian funeral.  Their lighted cross is obscured by an individual.

Ready for Tet.

About  eighty cents.

The only non-alcoholic drink I have ever had that I wanted more than one. :)

 Preparing a Tet present.

The black objects in the middle contain barbecued beef.  Most excellent.

Sh%t Southern Women Say, Episode 8

With ISIS Flags Waving & Video: Woman Beheaded in Saudi Arabia As US Women in Pussy Hats Protest Trump

The coalition of the American Left and Islam, long-known to those paying attention, was on full display during the Women's March in Washington DC. The insanity of it seems vexing: how could women, the most oppressed and victimized of all people in Islamic nations, support Islam? It boggles the mind. That is, until one realizes what has been taking place. It is a matter of the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

The American Left will side with anyone against Christian Whites, even though many of them are Christian Whites. They think, stupidly, that by getting out in front of the issue of cultural change they will save themselves from the Islamists when the beheadings begin. The truth is, they will probably be first, because the rest of the Christian Whites are armed.



The South: Convenient Scapegoat For A Nation's Sins

Dear Sir:

Voltaire said "History is the propaganda of the victorious," and the Bible says that to bear false witness against one's neighbor is a Cardinal Sin. Whether by calculated design or by ignorance of the Truth - willful or otherwise - the South and the Confederacy have been made into the convenient scapegoats for all the slavery and all of the racial ills of the United States.

Slavery is as old as history - Egypt and the Book of Genesis, at least. The Code of Hammurabi had a slave code, as did the ancient Hebrews (see Leviticus, Chapter 25) .

His service included qualification as an Airborne Ranger, and command of an Engineer company in Vietnam, where he received the Bronze Star. After his return, he resigned his Commission and ended by making a career as a tugboat captain. During this time he was able to earn a Master of Liberal Arts from the University of Richmond, with an international focus on war and cultural revolution. He is a member of the Jamestowne Society, the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of Virginia, the Sons of Confederate Veterans, and the Society of Independent Southern Historians. He currently lives in Richmond, where he writes, studies history, literature and cultural revolution, and occasionally commutes to Norfolk to serve as a tugboat pilot.

The Trump administration said Tuesday it’s reviewing a possible “adjustment” of former President Obama’s release of more than $220 million to the Palestinian Authority, hours before he left office last week.

Acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the agency is “currently reviewing last-minute spending approved by the previous administration and will make adjustments if needed to ensure that it aligns with the priorities of the Trump-Pence administration.”

Another major hit to the globalist agenda is set to take place as the New York Times is reporting that President Donald Trump will be signing an executive order that greatly reduces U.S. involvement in the United Nations.

President Trump has stated multiple times that there will be changes taking place regarding the United Nations after the anti-Israel resolution was passed with the help of the Obama administration.

A Formidable Organ Supply Chain in China Based on Killing – New Report Released at National Press Club

Via comment by Unknown Reaper  on China Says It Is Ready To Assume "World Leadership...


Three international investigators released an in-depth update on the killing of prisoners of conscience for their organs in China at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on June 22, 2016.

Their extensive research, based on media reports, medical journals, hospital websites, and web archives, concludes that the number of transplants performed in China–and the number of victims–are much higher than previously estimated.

David Kilgour, former Canadian Secretary of State for Asia-Pacific, and human rights lawyer David Matas, published Bloody Harvest: Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China in 2009 to shine a light on the harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners in China, millions of whom have been detained or imprisoned for their belief.

Ethan Gutmann, an award-winning China analyst and investigative journalist, published The Slaughter: Mass Killings, Organ Harvesting, and China’s Secret Solution to Its Dissident Problem in 2014, after conducting an independent investigation.

Secret Service agent who suggested she wouldn't take 'a bullet' for Trump expelled premier association for retired agents

Via comment by SunwolfNC on Senior Secret Service agent suggests she wouldn't ...

The premier association for former U.S. Secret Service agents Wednesday expelled the special agent who suggested she wouldn't take "a bullet" to defend President Trump because she considered him "a disaster" for the country.

Kerry O'Grady, the agent in question who runs the Secret Service's Denver office, was an associate member of the association until Wednesday when the organization official rescinded her membership. The Association of Former Agents U.S. Secret Service, or AFAUSSS, also known as Old Star, cited comments O'Grady made on Facebook, first reported by the Washington Examiner.

In an emailed notice to all of its members on Wednesday, the organization said its Board of Directors had decided to expel O'Grady from its membership. The Board of Directors vote to expel her was unanimous, the email said.

Democrats And Republicans Unite To Rescind Last-Minute Obama Order Seeking Federal Election Takeover

All 50 state secretaries of state are urging the Trump administration to rescind a last-minute Department of Homeland Security directive calling state election systems “critical infrastructure.”

Many state officials fear this is the first step toward a federal takeover of state-run elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

While deep political discord may be found on other issues, state secretaries — who oversee all election machinery — appear completely united against the former administration’s attempt to insert the federal government into state-run elections.

Then-Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson surprised and outraged state election officials with his Jan. 6 action, just two weeks before President-elect Donald Trump was to assume the presidency.
