    VIDEOJoe Biden in Hanoi suffered the extreme HUMILIATION of his own staff publicly treating him like a senile old fool by shutting him down in the middle of a press conference. In this video we see the results of what would have happened if Biden's staff similarly shut down other presidents of the past in the middle of their own speeches.
  • Nolte: We Should Accept Jane Fonda’s Apology About Vietnam

    After numerous apologies over four decades, it’s time to let Hanoi Jane Fonda off the hook for Vietnam. The Oscar-winning actress apologized for being used as propaganda for North Vietnam when we were still fighting North Vietnam. I will tell you right now that half the problems in this country stem from refusals to accept apologies. All of America’s manufactured racial problems come down to a group of leftists (of all colors) who refuse to forgive and move on when it comes to slavery and Jim Crow. It’s not enough that hundreds of thousands of white Americans died to settle...

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | December 2, 2022 | by Carly Thomas
    For the first time in nearly three years, Jane Fonda returned to Washington, D.C., to rally, sounding the alarm on the growing climate crisis. The Academy Award-winning actress launched “Fire Drill Fridays” in October 2019 as a weekly rally in the nation’s capital. The goal was to demand action from the nation’s leaders to address climate change. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the movement transitioned online, amassing more than 11 million views across social media platforms. Since the start of the protests, other climate change activists and celebrities have joined Fonda. That was no different on Friday when actress...

    A Lesson in Markets and Bureaucracies: The Very Instructive History of Rat FarmsIn effect, authorities created two rat farms, both unintended: the sewers, and the private-sector rat-farms.The history of Rat Farms offers a valuable lesson in how markets and bureaucracies work. The story of how the colonial authorities in Hanoi came to establish two kinds of rat farms is highly instructive. The first rat farm was unintentional. French colonial authorities decided to modernize the French Quarter of Hanoi (where Westerners lived) by constructing a modern sewer system, the overall goal being to establish "a little Paris in the East." Their...
  • Can Any of These Countries Replace China as the Factory of the World?

    Epoch Times ^ | 10/17/2022 | John Mac Ghlionn
    China is losing its influence; it’s in decline. At the same time, however, China, ruled by a despotic regime, is responsible for 28.7 percent of global manufacturing output (more than 10 percentage points ahead of its No. 1 rival, the United States). This utter dependence on China for manufacturing must be stopped. As I write this, three countries are working to siphon customers away from China. Will their efforts prove to be successful?I speak from experience when I say the following: communist China is not a fun place to live in. Moreover, with its frequent power cuts and the Chinese...
  • Hanoi's popular 'Train Street' cafes ordered to close

    The street, where trains travel along a track just inches away from homes and businesses in the Vietnam capital, has long been one of the most popular tourist sites in Hanoi and a regular favorite on social media. However, it is also dangerous. The train track is still operational, and there have been security issues with tourists who like to sit, lie down and pose on the tracks. Although there has been official pushback in the past -- most notably in 2019 -- the Hanoi regional government is now taking a hard line by revoking all the licenses for coffee...

    For every Friday of fall 2019, Jane Fonda was on Capitol Hill, protesting climate change alongside friends like Gloria Steinem and actresses Rosanna Arquette, Sally Field and Catherine Keener. Fonda could spend her time in retirement, enjoying the fruits of an illustrious Hollywood career. Instead, on the eve of her 82nd birthday, she was led out of the Hart Senate Building in handcuffs. She had been arrested for civil disobedience. Since September, Fonda says she’s “lost count” of how many times she’s been arrested. Since October, she had begun organizing weekly protests with the catchy nickname “Fire Drill Fridays.” She...

    Breaking Defense (News) ^ | 30 September 2019 | Colin Clark
    WASHINGTON: Ousted National Security Advisor John Bolton said Kim Jong Un “will never give up” nuclear weapons voluntarily — an implicit warning to his former boss. Bolton was restating a consensus view of the Intelligence Community, one that runs counter to President Trump’s faith that the North Korean dynast can be wheedled and cajoled. Speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies today, Bolton attracted a forest of TV cameras hoping for some fireworks. They probably thought they were getting something hot when Bolton made his comment about North Korea but, as Breaking D readers know, the Intelligence Community’s...
  • North Korea executed envoy to US and officials after failed Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi

    North Korea executed Kim Hyok-chol, its special envoy to the United States, and foreign ministry officials who carried out working-level negotiations for the second US-North Korea summit in February, holding them responsible for its collapse, a South Korean newspaper reported on Friday. Kim Yong-chol, a senior official who had been US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s counterpart in the run-up to the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Hanoi, is also said to have been subjected to forced labour and ideological education, the Chosun Ilbo reported. The North Korean leader is believed to...

    Inducting Jane Fonda into the National Women's Hall of Fame could cost the organization its partnership with Seneca Falls, New York, its host town and the site of America's first-ever women's right's convention in 1848. Earlier this month, the Hall of Fame announced the actress would be among its class of 2019. Citing Fonda's actions during the Vietnam War, Seneca Falls Supervisor Greg Lazzaro released a resolution Thursday morning that would pull the town's support out of respect for veterans in the community. The resolution, which is expected to be proposed at next week's town board meeting, was released to...

    Vice President Mike Pence said in a wide-ranging speech Friday that President Donald Trump and the United States will continue dialog with North Korea to pressure the country towards denuclearization, after a recent summit between the two countries was cut short due to disagreements in negotiations. "Last night, Trump returned from a second historic summit with North Korea in Vietnam,'" Pence said at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, after the US-North Korea summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, broke up earlier than expected without a deal. "The President said it was productive two days and discussions among teams will continue....

    Media jackals predictably are braying that President Trump failed at the Hanoi summit. Nothing could be further from the truth. President Trump wisely sent North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-un back to Pyongyang from Hanoi, where he can tell the generals and security police commanders, on whose support he depends, that they are not going to get sanctions relief without giving up their nuclear arsenal. There is every sign that this outcome in Hanoi is a predictable stage in the process of obtaining consensus among the North Korean ruling class that they must give up on the strategy of confrontation and...

    HANOI - The White House barred reporters from Reuters, the Associated Press and Bloomberg from covering a dinner between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Wednesday after two of them asked Trump questions during his initial interactions with Kim. The three wire services are part of the White House press pool that covers U.S. presidents wherever they go. Reporters in the pool regularly shout out questions to leaders and on Wednesday they asked Trump about the summit and the testimony in Congress of his former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen, in two separate opportunities known...

    "After word spread about a renewed push by the Department of Homeland Security to get Vietnam to accept more deportees, some people saw it as a mistake by the Trump administration given the GOP’s fading strength in Orange County and the historical support that the Republican Party has gotten from Vietnamese Americans. But in a community where many older residents oppose undocumented immigration and younger ones tend to lean left politically, the controversy is just the latest to underscore the generational divide among those of Vietnamese descent." "More than 8,000 Vietnamese residents in the U.S. who escaped their homeland but...

    Jane Fonda admits she was ‘thoughtless’ in Vietnam By Danielle Turchiano, Variety 3-4 minutes Jane Fonda has had a five-decade-plus career as an actress, but prior to getting involved in anti-war activism after the Vietnam War, Fonda says her life was “eventful,” but not as meaningful. “I was a kind of pretty girl who made movies,” Fonda said at the Television Critics Association panel for her upcoming HBO documentary, “Jane Fonda in Five Acts.” “When I decided to throw in my lot with the anti-war movement, everything shifted. Everything. The way I looked at the world and other people, people...

Their mission was to provide the president an assessment of the regime of Ngo Dinh Diem, the president of the Republic of Vietnam. The first, Major General Victor Krulak, USMC, the special assistant for counterinsurgency for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, visited some ten locations in all four Corps areas of Vietnam. Based on extensive interviews with U.S. advisers to the South Vietnamese army, Krulak concluded that the war was going well....
