Can Tho where Marguerite Duras found her lover

If Saigon were a romantic and enthusiastic young girl, then Can Tho would be a seasoned elderly woman who lives in the countryside. Her stories flow with the Mekong River. Welcome to Can Tho, welcome to the private island called Azerai.


My Can Tho, where I spent many years. The girl filmed it because of the reference to Marguerite Duras' wonderful story, one of my favorite films of all time narrated by the haunting voice of Jean Moreau,The Lover

Vietnam Mon Amour
Ladies... you know you had another life, one in which romance and desperation were your fate. You're 15, almost 16, a loner in a lonely land. You're on a small ferry, just about to cross the turbid waters of the Mekong... yes, you're in Vietnam, French Vietnam, back before the colonial dream all went to hell. You're leaning on the rail, one foot hooked on the scupper, a girl dreaming of being a woman. As the peasants swarm aboard with their bicycles, carts and livestock, a large black Citroen C 6 limo eases itself slowly onto the deck. Already you're being observed by its hidden occupant.

Revealed: Adam Schiff’s Suspected Whistleblower’s Boss, Charles Kupchan, Was “Special Assistant to President Obama

We noted a couple of days ago ==


Lying Adam Schiff may have himself in a real pickle. If his CIA ‘whistleblower’ was spying on President Trump on behalf of Schiff, then they both could be held accountable for conspiracy and treason under the Espionage Act.

Chanel Rion on OAN had an excellent piece on suspected CIA ‘whistleblower’ and leaker Eric Ciaramella and Shifty Schiff. Both could be guilty of ‘seditious conspiracy to overthrow a sitting President’, the penalty for which is not good.

Notorious ISIS leader al-Baghdadi detonated his suicide vest killing himself on the scene after the Delta Force entered his compound

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the notorious Islamic State (also known as IS, ISIS, ISIL), was killed in Syria’s Idlib province on October 27, 2019, in a military raid carried out by the United States 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (1st SFOD-D), also known as Delta Force. The Delta Force is considered as Tier 1 unit.

The operation was carried out after the CIA agents have acknowledged the al-Baghdadi’s possible whereabout. In coordination with Joint Special Operations Command, commonly known as JSOC, they have coordinated the raid which resulted in the death of al-Baghdadi. In addition to Delta Force, participating units under JSOC included the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne)—also known as “Night Stalkers”—and operators from the CIA’s Special Activities Division, which recruits heavily from former JSOC Special Mission Units. The operation ended a nearly 5-year search for al-Baghdadi since.

The City of Angels is apparently also the city of rats. Los Angeles has been ranked the second "Rattiest City" in the U.S., according to the pest control service Orkin.

Chicago took the number one spot, with New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco-Oakland rounding out the top five Rattiest Cities.

The pest control company compiled the metro region rankings based on the number of residential and commercial rodent treatments performed from September 2018-19.

How the Left Will Fight The Next Civil War- and How to Prepare

Via G.W. Long

In this video, Patriot Nurse discusses the historical tactics utilized by socialist and communist insurgencies worldwide. History shows that whether its the Soviet, Nazi, Bulgarian, Rhodesian, or Chinese style of communism, the tactics remain the same throughout time. As the Left increasingly adopts the tactics used by both their founding fathers, as well as America's recent enemies, we as conservative minded individuals must take steps to prepare to both defend ourselves and respond to the wave of violence that historically follows the rhetoric from the likes of Maxine Waters, Rashida Thalib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Beto and Antifa. When we consider the wicked and demonic nature of these people who espouse Socialism, we shouldn't be surprised that, like their father, they exist to steal, kill and destroy.

GearScout Guide: First Look at the Sig Sauer MCX Spear (NGSW-R)

The MCX Spear is Sig Sauer's answer to the Army request for a Next Generation Squad Weapon Rifle. This MCX Spear could replace the M4 for soldiers in combat roles and fires a new round in 6.8x51. The rifle is designed to shoot farther, and be more effective in future battles than the current M4 and M-16. The Next-Generation Squad Weapon program also will produce a new machine gun to replace the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW).
