Remember all that political hay the far left and its media allies made during the Vietnam War about the wickedness of America's South Vietnamese ally (snip)? Here's the Pulitzer Prize–winning AP photo that was supposed to p*ick our consciences and make us turn against that "immoral" war (snip) There's no doubt about it, the photo is hard to look at. It's crude, rough, wartime justice, a picture of South Vietnamese Police Captain Nguyễn Ngọc Loan coldly executing Viet Cong Captain Nguyễn Văn Lém. (snip) It ran on the front page of the New York Times (snip) And it got the results the anti-war left wanted: public sentiment abruptly turned against the war

IMHO, the worst of all of the TREASONOUS left was Walter Cronkite! G-d Damn his evil soul to the Hell he so richly deserves! His acolyte "Lying Dan Rather" was no prize either.

A perfect example of why 'History' cannot be written in real time. It takes YEARS before all the facts are in.

Pulitzer prizes are nothing other than 'journalists' awarding other 'journalists' prizes. Kinda like grade school gold stars.

Everyone who wanted to know about this was already aware that the VC executed by the police captain was a murdering terrorist. The only people who got upset with the photo, or the video, were hard-core leftists.

The Viet Cong murderer had been caught in the home of a family he murdered. Yes it is rough justice but it was justice and taking place in the midst of a violent period. This is one of the problems with camera's and news reporters mixed into combat situations. There was no context, no pictures of the slaughtered children and parents. It was used by the left to demonize the South Vietnamese govt and soldiers. The real problem with the Vietnam war was the fact that there was no plan to win it. Just a plan not to lose. This contradicted all previous experience with war that we had experienced. The army became more concerned with KIA counts than with clearing and holding territory. The South Vietnamese army managed to hold off the North Vietnamese army until they ran out of munitions and the Democratic controlled House and Senate refused to honor our promises to support them.

I heard that the guy shot was a Viet Cong killer who had just been caught murdering people way back at the time, and I have always believed the story, and that a murderer was getting sent, efficiently, to Hell. I never believed the media much, even in those days. And I've learned to trust them even less in the next 40-50 years.

Thanks to John F. Kennedy, a young, immature rich boy from New England whose primary talent was chasing pretty girls in Hollywood, we became mired in a war where we had even less business than we did later in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our soldiers died from bullets every day so the actions of the Viet Cong were not out of the ordinary. They were also pressured and lost families in the name of a political ideology. We should have learned valuable lessons from that but here we are, getting drawn deeper and deeper into a dispute in Ukraine. The government tells us that we are only giving them supplies and no US Military personnel are involved. They lie and will continue lying until dead bodies begin arriving on the usual ships. We can not resist stupid wars.

I am old enough to remember this photo very well and also what was being said about it. In my misspent youth I was a Viet Nam war protester. Not because I had any true understanding of good vs evil or the ugliness of communism but because I saw my friends and classmates going to fight this war and returning in body bags or as drug addicts treated like dirt by the public. Years later I joined the Air Force and became convinced we were the good guys and years after that saw the treachery of our leaders and the sainted press. I still love America but will always carry that cynicism in my heart.

The New York Times has never returned the Pulitzer Prize awarded Walter Duranty for his reporting from the Soviet Union and praising Stalin's communist regime. Ukraine, then part of Russia, was terrorized and suffered a KGB-caused famine. Millions died! The Time's Duranty praised communism and said that Ukrainians only missed lunch "once in a while." This vicious lie and many others was printed and believed by millions of readers. The Times still prints lies as much now as ever.

I completely agree with poster #1, Cronkite was a traitor and he has blood on his hands for his "This war is lost" statement on Feb. 28, 1968 after the TET offensive. Strategically the TET offensive was a massive failure for the North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong and it was driving them to the peace table until Cronkite uttered his famous words..."This war is lost". In that statement Cronkite gave aid and comfort to the enemy. At the time I was just 4 months from my deployment to Vietnam and I often wonder how many more lives were lost due to his commentary

If U.S. leftists had their way, there would be street tribunals in every major city, wherein Antifa miscreants would perform similar executions to MAGA conservatives, ostensibly for the "common good" of bringing about "societal change/cleansing" Sound familiar yet? (Hint: Germany 1934)

It may have been meaningful at the start, but the Pulitzer Prize is worth only what you can afford to pay for it. That said, medical research is about the only one on the list I pay any attention to.

In recent days, Tucker Carlson presented facts about occurrences on January 6th, 2021, in and around the Capitol building that debunked the spurious Democrat narrative of a “deadly insurrection” by Trump supporters. The “deadly insurrection” claim was and is being used to target civilians and subject them to draconian punishment when the severest penalty they actually deserved for their actions on January 6th was a small fine or community service. (snip) Exploiting voters’ fear by peddling the “insurrection” narrative and claiming Trump will be a dictator is the only way the Democrats can secure votes. If the insurrection is debunked, they have nothing.

Tucker added, “Merrick Garland has presided over the most aggressive attack on civil liberties, in particular, an attack on the practice of traditional Christianity, than any living American has seen.” (snip) After highlighting these gross injustices against American Christians, Tucker makes what I believe is his most important point: You have to wonder when you see a tape like that, where are so-called Christian leaders?

Her parents lived apart. What made this memorable was her lamenting the fact that her parents never married, sharing with me her humiliation when other children discussed their parents' anniversaries or honeymoons.

President Joe Biden's budget blueprint will include a 5.2% raise for federal employees, one of the largest peacetime military budgets in recent history and plans to save Social Security and Medicare. It won't include cuts to federal spending, which Republicans have pushed for a strategy to bring down the $31.4 trillion federal deficit. Instead, Biden will pay for his proposals with a series of new taxes on the wealthy and corporations. The combo of more spending and taxes will likely make his budget dead on arrival when it reaches Capitol Hill as Republicans, who control the House, prepare to hammer him as a tax-and-spend Democrat.
