17 Photos of Quiet Moments in 1963 Saigon

Saigon, Paris Of The Orient 



 In piecing together our collective memory of a Saigon past, old photos play an insurmountable role in providing visual evidence that the human mind might miss after decades.

These shots of 1963 Saigon were taken by American G.I. Pete Komada who was based at Davis Station in suburban Saigon. What he saw through his lens were separate slices of the city in the early 1960s, when the sides of the Saigon River weren’t filled with houses and still retained their lush greenery, as shown through the aerial shots.

Women in snazzy hairdos behind the bar, a morning coffee at the Continental Hotel accompanied by people-watching, the eerie emptiness of Dong Khoi Street late at night: a mix of the familiar and the strange exists in these photos.

"ANOTHER GOOD HEARING FOR THE FACTS": Jim Jordan speaks following impeachment hearings day 4

Patrick Henry called the Constitution a butterfly with "poison under the wings."


The beginning of the American political order goes much further back than the Philadelphia Convention of 1787.  Political scientists and political theorists are understandably fixated on the Constitution and the convention that produced it.  Eric Voegelin, Willmoore Kendall, and a few others go even further back searching for a continuity in the political symbolization present in some certain select, but not all, American political documents of the colonial era.  Origins and foundings are broader and more complex things than what a selection of documents or the deliberations that one constitution convention can reveal.  Any political order is bound up with the cultural, religious, social and political ethos and eidos of a people and their society.  In the American experience, there was not one founding but thirteen and these “foundings” took place over a period of slightly more than a century.  Present in these thirteen political orders were powerful commonalities and significant differences among each of the thirteen distinct societies.  What is the most significant cooperative action on the part of these thirteen states, the War for Independence, was as much a source of division as it was of unity.  All the colonial governments seceded for the British Empire, but only a minority of colonists, one-third if we believe Mr. John Adams, perhaps as low as one-fifth if some scholars are to be believed, favored secession from Great Britain.  A plurality just wanted the war to go away. Of course, this is not important, unless one is in the habit of introducing your constitution with the phrase, “We the People . . ..”

Trump Responds: Sondland Testimony Means Impeachment Is 'All Over'

Via Billy

President Donald Trump responded to U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland’s testimony on Wednesday, suggesting it means the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry should end.

“I just noticed one thing, and I would say that means it’s all over,” Trump told reporters at the White House before traveling to Texas.

Trump was referring to a Sept. 9 phone conversation he had with Sondland, which the ambassador testified about Wednesday before the House Intelligence Committee.

“‘What do you want from Ukraine?’ he asks me. … ‘I keep hearing all these different ideas and theories.’ This is Ambassador Sondland speaking to me,” the president explained as he read from notes he was holding.

Schiff Gets 3 'Pinocchios' from Washington Post Over Whistleblower Claim

Via Billy

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) speaks at a House Intelligence Committee hearing in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill on Nov. 20, 2019, in Washington, D.C.

The Washington Post has awarded House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff three “Pinocchios” for his claim that the Ukraine whistleblower possesses a “statutory right” to remain anonymous.

That three-Pinocchio rating denotes “significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions.”
Schiff has made the claim on multiple occasions, during both closed-door depositions and a public hearing, The Post reported.

It’s not true. No federal statutes give whistleblowers the right to anonymity.

Ukrainian members of parliament have demanded the presidents of Ukraine and the United States, Volodymyr Zelensky and Donald Trump, investigate suspicions of the legalization of $7.4 billion by the "family" of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych through the American investment fund Franklin Templeton Investments, which they said has ties to the U.S. Democratic Party.

Support For Impeachment Inquiry ‘Ticks Down’ But Pelosi Says She Won’t Give Up

A new poll from Politico and Morning Consult shows that support for the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is slowly ticking down as the televised House Intelligence Committee hearings wear on, and independents — a group of voters key to Democrats’ hope of retaking the White House in 2020 — are tuning out in double digits.
