Edwin Stanton And The Coup d’ Etat

There was an interesting and revelatory article, written by a David Offutt, that appeared in the El Dorado News-Times  in El Dorado, Arkansas on February 7, 2005. It was entitled Lincoln Assassination as a Planned Coup d’ Etat . Although I had not particularly thought of it in those terms, Mr. Offutt may well have had something in that contention.

His article, printed out, is two and a half pages long so I am not going to try to reproduce the whole thing, but will try to hit some of the high points he made.

The Life Semi-Aquatic With 1968 Can Tho

When it comes to old photos of Vietnam, Saigon - as one of the country’s leading tourist destinations in the 1960s - always dominates in terms of volume and variety. That makes this set of photos of Can Tho, taken by William Ruzin in 1968, all the more precious.

Ruzin was an American soldier based in Vietnam in the late 60s. With an eye for photography, he brought along his trusty Minolta and Yashica cameras to document his tour in Vietnam, until he departed from the country in 1969.

The scenes from the Mekong Delta town are a mixture of urban and rural vistas: one minute, one’s ambling along a busy metropolitan street filled with vintage cars and in the blink of an eye, vegetable gardens, alluvium-filled rivers and thatched houses paint a picture of pastoral quietude.

Can Tho was established where the smaller Can Tho River meets the Hau River, one of two distributaries of the Mekong River. The city is then sectioned off by smaller canals, which have been an indispensable part of Can Tho life for centuries, as water transport arteries, irrigation resources, and more.

Lindsey Graham Just Introduced New Legislation to Fix the Border Crisis. Here's What it Does.

"What I'm trying to do is stop the flow coming from Central America to regain control of our border and stop a humanitarian crisis that I think is just going to get worse over time. One of the most important things I can stress to you is that people are trying to get caught. They're not avoiding getting caught," Graham continued. "So when we talk about building a wall as Republicans, that makes sense to stop illegal entry into the country, try to direct people into areas where we have a better chance of apprehending them. That doesn't work when the goal of the person is to find a Border Patrol agent and turn yourself in."

Yes, The Alabama Legislature Is Right To Openly ‘Defy’ Roe V. Wade

It is erroneous to think of an idiosyncratic (let alone wrongly decided) Supreme Court edict, such as Roe, as the "law of the land" which is binding on all fellow constitutional actors. There is nothing in the Constitution's text, structure, or original understanding to indicate that. And in fact, the Alabama state legislators' oath of office emphatically contradicts that line of thought.

So the great state of Alabama has officially passed the strongest pro-life bill in the country. The bill, which bans all abortions except for those deemed truly necessary to save the life of the mother, now awaits Republican Gov. Kay Ivey's signature. The bill contains no exceptions for pregnancies resultant from rape or incest, and has already induced a general state of meltdown from large swaths of the rabidly pro-abortion cultural Left.

An organization of conservative African-American leaders is accusing Planned Parenthood of engaging in deception in order to open an abortion clinic in a historically black neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Douglass Leadership Institute — a pro-life, pro-free-market and pro-limited-government educational and policy group — working in conjunction with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg minority clergy community, voiced its concern about the opening of the clinic in the Cherry Hill district, which will be the only Planned Parenthood location in the city that provides abortions rather than referrals, according to The Christian Post.
