I assume he did it in hopes that McConnell will pull his finger out and get the GOP senators in line and do something.

If she keeps trolling Trump all over the world he will take her down.

One thing I don't understand is why would we sell anyone uranium? Especially a nuclear power.

"The most trusted man in Amerika" - Walter Cronkite.  We got fed his CRAP in grade school, "The 21st Century" series, 16mm movies about how Utopia was just around the corner... little did we understand it was Communism around the corner.  My parents HATED Cronkite.
Now there's a real documentary, how the leftists rewrote history in the making, and make Cron-sleight the focus of the documentary.

And there are still some people who think he shouldn't have been fired.

He was supposedly a stand up, uninterruptible person until now. I'm not buying it.

I don't know about anyone else, but I've heard exactly zero about this. There has been no email communication and I haven't heard from any other members either.
I know the site operator is a pretty busy guy so there is a chance it just crashed and he hasn't noticed yet... or hasn't had time to deal with it.
100% speculation, of course.

Burns is a known leftist revisionist historian, and now he tackles the lefts Nam, yes, Nam is owned by the left.
I wonder if he'll expose Cronkite for the traitor he was? I won't hold my breath, nor will I watch this POS leftist rewriting of history, a history we all lived through.

Next thing you know, they'll claim aliens were the first to drive trucks across the ice, call in actual "Alien Astronaut Theorists" to find evidence linking Native Americans to the Inuit people who were the first slaves of alien astronauts.

These first "Masters" were sent here to exploit the first people's labors and their ability to survive in such a harsh climate while cutting ice blocks for the "masters" to take back to their dying desert of a planet.

During their time on earth, they bred with the indigenous people, and the end result was white Europeans who later invaded North America.
This will be the focus of "Alien Astronaut Theorists", proving white men are inherently evil and not of this world.

OK, I now return you to the so-called "History Channel" a Leftist experiment in observing how much innocuous crap man is willing to endure if you put a pretty face on the screen.

War Forum / Oliver North on Ken Burns' rendition of Viet Nam
« Last post by Hoofer on Today at 05:50:53 AM »
Here's the problem.   A guy gets recognized for a work he does, with far a few critics to critique his work or the accuracy of it, the players were already dead, or too old to care.   He's awarded some kind of accolades for condensing a huge work into a moving, tear jerking, several hour long piece, as the definitive work on the entire subject, "you wanna understand WW2, just watch THIS, and you got it."

Big mistake.  Same mistake these short movies make, there's just too much information in so many geographically diverse theatres of combat, and non-combat areas to just neatly condense.   OK, so here goes... Viet Nam.

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

When Richard Nixon was in the White House, I was in Vietnam and he was my commander in chief. When I was on Ronald Reagan’s National Security Council staff, I had the opportunity to brief former President Nixon on numerous occasions and came to admire his analysis of current events, insights on world affairs and compassion for our troops. His preparation for any meeting or discussion was exhaustive. His thirst for information was unquenchable and his tolerance for fools was nonexistent.

Mr. Nixon’s prosecution of the war in Southeast Asia is poorly told by Ken Burns in his new Public Broadcasting Service documentary “The Vietnam War.” That is but one of many reasons Mr. Burns‘ latest work is such a disappointment and a tragic lost opportunity.

It’s sad, but I’ve come to accept that the real story of the heroic American GIs in Vietnam may never be told. Like too many others, Ken Burns portrays the young soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines of the Vietnam War as pot-smoking, drug-addicted, hippie marauders.

Those with whom I served were anything but. They did not commit the atrocities alleged in the unforgivable lies John Kerry described to a congressional committee so prominently featured by Mr. Burns. The troops my brother and I were blessed to lead were honorable, heroic and tenacious. They were patriotic, proud of their service, and true to their God and our country.

To depict them otherwise, as Mr. Burns does, is an egregious disservice to them, the families of the fallen and to history. But his treatment of my fellow Vietnam War veterans is just the start. Some of the most blatant travesties in the film are reserved for President Nixon.

Because of endless fairy tales told by Ken Burns and others, many Americans associate Richard Nixon with the totality and the worst events of Vietnam. It’s hardly evident in the Burns “documentary,” but important to note: When Richard Nixon was elected president in 1968, he inherited a nation — and a world — engulfed in discord and teetering on the brink of widespread chaos. His predecessor, Lyndon Johnson, was forced from office with a half-million U.S. troops mired in combat and fierce anti-American government demonstrations across the country and in our nation’s capital.

Ken Burns may not recall — but my family remembers: It was Lyndon Johnson who sent my brother and me to war. It was Richard Nixon who brought us home. It is very likely we are alive today because Mr. Nixon kept his word.

That’s not the only opportunity for accuracy Mr. Burns ignored. He could have credited Mr. Nixon with granting 18-year olds the right to vote in July 1971 with the 26th Amendment to our Constitution. (Does Ken even recall the slogan, “Old enough to fight — old enough to vote!” He should. Mr. Burns turned 18 that same month.)

I remember that as, "Old enough to vote die — old enough to vote!"

Well, it's a PBS documentary, you can probably guess... they probably animated that long dead newscaster, Walter Cronkite to narrate the 'embarassing to America' parts, like he did for years on CBS... turning victory into defeat. 

Thank God we have an alternate Media than the MSM these days... and a few Patriots like, Oliver North.  Oh, BTW... just in case you forgot, John Kerry was in Viet Nam, he had himself filmed himself there, as proof.
