The White House would never credit Donald Trump with the vaccine
rollout unless there was something negative about the vaccine that is
going to hit the newswires; that is a no-brainer.
That baseline is why CTH said two months ago to watch for the moment
when the White House credits Trump with the vaccine because that’s the
moment when: (1) the vaccine was going to be identified as dangerous;
and/or (2) reports would show the vaccine did not work.
Today the White House credited President Trump with the vaccine:

During this month in 1975 the last major battle in the twenty year
long struggle of the Republic of Vietnam was taking place. Much about
the battle has been written and discussed by veterans, historians, news
commentators, students, and authors of all kinds in the subsequent four
decades. In this posting, RVNHS would like to ask you to take a moment
to reflect upon the battle not as an abstract historical event, but as
the fierce physical and psychological ordeal for the servicemen and
women as well as the countless civilians of the Republic of Vietnam who
were caught up in the intensity of those April weeks forty (six) years ago.

The battle has often been discussed in terms of the last stand
of the republic. Nearly all those soldiers who went into the forray to
defend the republic`s cause would give their lives or lose their freedom
this month. Of those who survived the battle many would spend years in
"re-education" camps. The overall commander at Xuan Loc, General Le Minh
Dao, would remain in capitivity until 1992, seventeen years after the
battle ended. The sacrifice of these men and women in the eleventh hour
of the republic stands testiment to the loyalty many held for the
Republic of Vietnam.

Much of the battle consisted of repeated repelling of assaults by Communist forces.

Refugees fleeing the Communist advance flocked around the military of the republic,
clogging roads and generally making military movement of any kind difficult.
Nevertheless, the republic`s military felt a responsibility to the civilians, and thousands were
evacuated aboard military aircraft from the conflict area as shown in this photo,
The Battle of Xuan Loc; Mar 17 – Apr 17, 1975 & The End
Xuan Loc was the last major
battle for South Vietnam. This town sits astride Q. L. (National
Road) #1, some 40 odd miles to the northeast of Saigon (on the
road to Phan Thiet) and was the capitol of South Vietnam’s Long
Khanh province. The North Vietnamese Army (NVA) attack fell on
the Army Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) 18th Division.12
On March 17th, 1975 the NVA 6th & 7th Divisions attacked Xuan Loc but were repulsed by the ARVN 18th. On April 9th the NVA 341st
Division joined the attack. After a four thousand round
artillery bombardment, these three divisions massed, and
spearheaded by Russian tanks and other armored vehicles, mounted
a second assault on Xuan Loc. But again, the ARVN 18th held its ground. The NVA reinforced with their 325th Division and began moving their 10th & 304th
Divisions into position. Eventually, in a classic example of
the art of “Mass and Maneuver” the NVA massed 40,000 men and
overran Xuan Loc.
During this fight, the ARVN 18th had 5,000 men at Xuan Loc. These men managed to virtually destroy 3 NVA divisions, but on April 17th,
1975 they were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers and the weight
of the “Mass.” Before overrunning Xuan Loc the NVA had committed
six full divisions, plus a host of various support troops.
"The fierce fighting raged for two weeks. The 18th Division, outnumbered seven to one by communistPeople's Army of Vietnam (PAVN)
forces, virtually destroyed three North Vietnamese Army (NVA)
divisions, but was overwhelmed by superior numbers on April 21, 1975. Saigon fell nine days later."

Own a piece of early mountain agricultural heritage, less
than a 5-minute drive from the thriving mountain community of Brevard
and its award-winning “Main Street” downtown area!
Built c.1846 with a large ell addition in 1860, the historic Elizur
Patton House is believed to be the second oldest house in Transylvania
County, postdating the Deavor House which has been restored by local
preservationists as a museum. The house is an integral part of the
early agricultural heritage of Transylvania County and its vernacular
architecture. Located in the Pisgah Forest Township of Transylvania
County, it is only five minutes from downtown Brevard and is sited upon a
rise immediately west of a gentle eastward slope toward the nearby
Davidson River. The Patton family was one of the more prominent farming
families in the region.
Georgia’s top law enforcement officer filed a
scathing rebuke to the controversial lawsuit against the state’s new
election law by President Biden’s Department of Justice, calling it a
“shameless political attack” and urging for its immediate dismissal.
“This is not a legitimate lawsuit from the
Department of Justice, it’s a campaign flier,” Georgia Attorney General
Chris Carr said in a statement to Fox News.

The Pennsbury School District in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, went as
far as censoring the board meetings so those speaking out against CRT
were stricken from the record. But they were in for a rude awakening
when former school board member Simon Campbell showed up to give the

Pennsbury's Director of Equity, Diversity & Education, Dr. Cherissa

Medical tyranny, media manipulation,
mandates, mayhem, miseducation... the last vestige and the last stand of
liberty is found in a nation's right to bear arms, defend themselves,
and secure their own communities from the enterprises of ambition that
would trespass them- both foreign and domestic: Marxism is the chief
enemy of liberty.

While many Biden backers are enjoying seeing the hammer come down on
pro-Trump, non-violent protesters, they should take note: the kind of
totalitarian “justice” system they are cheering on will soon be coming
for them. It always does.
The recent felony conviction and eight month prison sentence of
January 6th protester Paul Hodgkins is an affront to any notion of
justice. It is a political charge and a political verdict by a political
court. Every American regardless of political persuasion should be
terrified of a court system so beholden to politics instead of justice.
We’ve seen this movie before and it does not end well.
Worse than this miscarriage of justice is the despicable attempt by
the prosecutor in the case to label Hodgkins – who has no criminal
record and was accused of no violent crime – a “terrorist.”
The Cooper-Church Amendment had a profound effect on the morale and
outlook of South Vietnamese leaders at all levels. No longer was there a
lever to deter the North Vietnamese from building up forces for an all
out fight for a military victory. Only the threat of resuming the
bombing restrained North Vietnam. With the amendment, this threat was
neutralized. Finally, whereas U.S. airpower had been decisive in halting
the 1968 and 1972 offensives, that firepower would no longer be
available. Confronted with these factors and the curtailment of money
and equipment, Vietnamese leadership stood at the crossroads on the
brink of the 1975 offensive.
