March the Sixteenth

This day in history:

March 16th, 1915 - British battle cruisers HMS Inflexible and HMS Irresistible hit mines in Dardanelle 

With the ease of sea travel European nations competed in their colonization efforts. In the fight for dominance Germany had managed to win the friendship of Turkey, which in turn closed off important ports to the British. In the Battle of the Dardanelles England attacked Turkey in order to open up the important sea route through the Dardanelles. On March 16th, 1925 the British ships Inflexible and Irresistible were mined by the Turks, in a rather symbolic gesture of the attitudes that eventually brought the end of the rise to power of both England and Germany.

While England and her allies won WWI, the cost was too great and economic collapse spread across the globe allowing Nazism to gain power in Germany, Fascism in Italy and Communism in Russia. The naive assumption that England's military might was inflexible and irresistible brought about brutal regimes that cost the lives of millions, and brought suffering to billions. The goals of expansion through colonization remained a practice until the late 20th century by nations such as France and Holland, resulting in more wars as native populations of Africa and Asia were disillusioned with what they saw as exploitation by the West, and turned to Communism, unaware of the terrors awaiting them under that insidious form of government. 


March 16th, 1935 - Hitler orders German rearmament, violating Versailles Treaty 

The Treaty of Versailles was the agreement Germany signed to end WWI, which placed Germany under the League of Nations. Hitler apparently had no use for it, and simply ignored it. The League of Nations soon disbanded since Hitler's defiance of their authority made their existence meaningless. It's unfortunate that the United Nations doesn't have the same common sense.


March 16th, 1945 - US defeats Japan at Iwo Jima 

The Battle of Iwo Jima was fought between the United States and Japan during February and March of 1945, during the Pacific Campaign of World War II. As a result of the battle, the United States gained control of the island of Iwo Jima and the airfields located there.

The Allied forces suffered 26,000 casualties, with nearly 7,000 dead. Over a quarter of the Medals of Honor awarded to marines in World War II were given for conduct in the invasion of Iwo Jima.

The island of Iwo Jima was declared secure on March 26th, 1945.

"Among the men who fought on Iwo Jima, uncommon valor was a common virtue" -- Admiral Chester W. Nimitz


March 16th, 1955 - President Eisenhower upheld the use of atomic weapons in case of war 

This infuriates Liberals who see America as the source of all evil. The idea that the ability of America to use nuclear weapons, as been the sole deterrent for other nations to use them, is something they cannot comprehend. Of course when Reagan proposed a program that would possibly make nuclear weapons obsolete, they scoffed at it and called it names.


March 16th, 1962 - US Super-Constellation disappears above Pacific Ocean, kills 107 

The crew of the SS T.L. Lenzen supertanker sighted a midair explosion at 12:30am local time. Lockheed's 1049H Super Constellation had left Agana, Guam and was en route to Clark Air force base in Saigon. It was never heard from again. After a search of 144,000 square miles nothing was ever found. To this day no one knows what happened to the 11 crew-members and 69 passengers aboard.


March 16th, 1968 - My Lai massacre occurs (Vietnam War); 450 die 

From PBS:

On March 16, 1968 the angry and frustrated men of Charlie Company, 11th Brigade, Americal Division entered the village of My Lai. "This is what you've been waiting for -- search and destroy -- and you've got it," said their superior officers. A short time later the killing began. When news of the atrocities surfaced, it sent shockwaves through the US political establishment, the military's chain of command, and an already divided American public.

The eyewitness account of helicopter pilot Hugh Thompson and the account of Private Ron Ridenhour can be read here.


March 16th, 1972 - John & Yoko are served with deportation papers 

After immigrating from England, Lennon and his wife became active in American politics. February 4, 1972, Senator Strom Thurmond wrote a memo, classified as secret, urging Lennon be deported. On March 16th, 1972 they were served with deportation paper. Lennon's previous drug arrest was cited as one of many reasons. In March of 1973 he won his appeal and was not deported.

"Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now. I don't know which will go first -- rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me." -- John Lennon 

Lennon was shot to death in December of 1980 by an, as yet unidentified, gunman.


March 16th, 1988 - Federal grand jury indicts Marine Lt. Col. Oliver L. North & Navy Vice Adm. John M. Poindexter in Iran-Contra affair 

In spite of the brutal regime of the Nicaraguan Sandinista's Liberal controlled Congress passed laws forbidding government employees from aiding the freedom fighters, known as Contras. In a private venture several high ranking Reagan Administration members coordinated a plan to not only aid the Contras in their fight for freedom, but also win the release of hostages in Lebanon, through the influence of Iran.

When Congress discovered the plan, an investigation ensued. But nationally televised hearings showed Congress as stuffy, uncaring beurocrats, and the various accused as personable, caring people. Oliver North especially touched the hearts of America with his heart-felt defense of their actions. Once the hearings were over, the MSM went into high gear trashing the accused, desperately trying to undo the effect the hearings had on the general public.

In spite of an immunity agreement, North and Poindexter were subsequently indicted for “lying to Congress”. Their convictions were overturned on appeal since the only way the immunity could be withdrawn was if they had actually lied to Congress, and there was no evidence that either did.


March 16th, 1994 - Tonya Harding pleads guilty to felony attack on Nancy Kerrigan 

Rotton.com has the most concise break down of Harding's infamous career.


March 16th, 1995 - Mississippi House of Representatives ratifies 13th Amendment-formally abolishes slavery

But, since most of the southern states that did “ratify” it, did so without legal representation in Congress, the Amendment is arguably still not legally valid. Were these state to officially ratify it, it would be an admission that the laws put in effect immediately prior to the Civil War were invalid. To some it's better to ignore the problem, than try to make it right.


Births:

March 16th, 1751 - James Madison

Former President. Husband of Dolly.

March 16th, 1906 - Henny Youngman
March 16th, 1926 - Jerry Lewis
March 16th, 1933 - Ruth Bader Ginsberg

Three famous comedians

March 16th, 1946 - Erik Estrada

His first role was as Nicky Cruz in The Cross and the Switchblade. Later became famous playing “Ponch” in CHiPs.

Deaths:

March 16th, 1882 - Charles Darwin

I bet he got a surprise, didn't he.

March 16th, 1991 - 7 members of Reba McEntire's band killed in a plane crash

From Third Age:

"I hid," [McEntire] admits. "I didn't want to run the risk of getting close to someone and losing them." Says her friend Linda Davis: "it was a very, very dark time for her."

McEntire drew strength from her deep religious faith and the people she loves, especially her son Shelby, who was only a year old at the time of the crash.

"Today, I'll get on an airplane," she insists. "I can't spend my life being afraid. I just have to trust that we're all in God's hands and He knows the big plan."

The latest on Terri Schiavo

Heroic Congressmen are trying to rush through the federal legislation that could save Terri Schiavo's life. The bill already has115 co-sponsors. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist wants to bring the bill to the floor of the Senate this week for a vote without having it go through a Senate committee. But House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner, of Wisconsin, has scheduled a hearing for Weldon's bill for Wednesday. Sensenbrenner's phone number is (262) 784-1111, and his email address is sensenbrenner@mail.house.gov. Ask him if he really thinks an innocent life is worth the petty politics of demanding the bill go through his committee. Wisconsin residence will have a much greater impact calling him or even visiting his office in Brookfield at 120 Bishops Way, Room 154.

Meanwhile in Florida, a house and a senate bill are heading to the full Florida House and Senate today after clearing their final committee hurdles in both chambers

The house bill would prevent doctors or legal guardians from allowing a person in a persistent vegetative state to die by withholding food or water, if the patient had not previously issued an advance directive authorizing it to be withheld. The senate bill differs only in that it would apply only if family members disagree. The differences would be debated today, and a single bill voted on. It's expected that Florida governor Jeb Bush will sign the legislation.

Florida DCF is also appealing Judge Greer's decision to ignore their investigation, and execute Terri anyway.

For those of you with strong stomachs, ABC's Nightline aired an interview with Terri's pretend husband Michael “When is that bitch gonna die” Schiavo, and allowed him to lie his fool head off without challenging him once. Absolutely sickening.

More pedophiles for choice

In spite of earlier pleas by abortuaries that the Kansas Attorney General's investigation would invade people's privacy, the Kansas Supreme court, at the request of the Abortion Industry has will leave the documents the AG recovers open to the public.

Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline has been pursuing records of underage girls who had abortions at two Kansas abortion businesses. The abortion facilities have filed lawsuits preventing him from obtaining the necessary information to further the investigation.

A Shawnee County district judge previously issued a gag order in October preventing the information from being made public and the Kansas Supreme Court overturned that decision last week.

Kline had hoped to have the state's high court reverse its decision. He worries that abortion businesses are informing those girls who had abortions and that the information could tip off criminals who were responsible for the statutory rapes.

Kline said he believes the abortion businesses are more concerned about protecting themselves from criminal liability than worrying about patient privacy.

Being so brain dead to reality, these baby murders have no idea how insidious and evil they are making themselves look. Indiana has already opened a similar investigation, and as it begins to dawn on other states that the Abortion Industry has been protecting pedophiles and child molesters for all these years, expect more states to follow suit.

Murderer gets away

From Life News:

An abortion practitioner who is on trial for charges related to sexually abusing women on whom he performed abortions may have left the country. He failed to appear at a scheduled hearing last week.

After failing to appear in court last week, a judge issued a warrant for the arrest of Rodolfo Finkelstein, who faces two counts of first degree criminal sexual assault which could earn him a life term in prison

Another hearing had been scheduled for Monday, but defense attorneys requested a delay until March 21. That's because it appears Finkelstein has fled.

Assistant Oakland County Prosecutor Barbara Morrison told the Oakland Daily Press newspaper, "We believe he has left the country."

District Judge Kimberly Small increased Finkelstein's bond last week and issued a warrant for his arrest. She could issue another warrant if he is required to stand trial and Morrison said she will ask for a trial on the abuse charges, whether or not he is present.

Finkelstein is married and has children, according to a Daily Press news report. He gave up his passport at his arraignment, but officials believe the native of Argentina may have a passport from that country or an alternate American passport.

Morrison said a detective confirmed to her that he left the country on March 1.

He makes his living murdering babies. He sexually assaults women. He's a native of Argentina, and they take only his US passport, and “trust” that he'll do the decent thing and stay around for a trial. Obviously graduates of the Barney Fife school of law enforcement.

How can they kill babies if kids abstain?

From AgapePress:

Governor Mitt Romney has proposed budget language that would have prevented the Massachusetts Department of Public Health from spending roughly $800,000 in federal money on a media campaign instead of for its designated purpose: abstinence-only education. The original wording would have given the department the option of using the money either for classroom education or for outreach methods such as TV or subway ads.

However both the House and Senate in the Bay State have rejected the governor's proposed restriction....

"Planned Parenthood-types in the various departments of public health around the country ... subvert that money, since they don't like abstinence teaching, to very, very expensive media campaigns that [tells children] 'Don't have sex -- but if you have to, use a condom,'" [Pro-family activist Brian Camenker with the Article 8 Alliance] says....

"One of the things that really sort of seems laughable about this whole thing is that the governor, one would think, controls the Department of Public Health -- and if the governor wanted to, he could just order them to spend it properly," Camenker observes. "So I'm a little confused as to why he's going through this charade."

Massachusetts [rolls eyes] what can you expect from the state that elected Teddy Kennedy and John Kerry to the Senate.

The slippery slope of Malthusianism

Also from AgapePress:

The executive director of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations is concerned about the life-dishonoring trend Dutch doctors are establishing with regards to euthanasia.

After admitting to killing more than 20 newborns since 1997, Dutch doctors are asking the government of the Netherlands to expand legalized euthanasia in that country. The physicians claim the babies they killed faced unbearable suffering had they been allowed to live.

Dr. David Stevens of the CMDA finds this news deeply disturbing. He warns, "Once you say that there's such a thing as a life not worthy to be lived, and once you admit that suffering -- which is very difficult to define -- justifies taking the life of an individual, then there's no logical place to draw the line."

Take a good look. That is exactly where we are heading if we let the likes of the Georges Felos and Greer determine our laws. Seventy years ago Hitler showed just what depths the devaluing of life leads to. Many are trying to push us straight for that same pit.

Outsmarting the bullies

Tuesday I reported about the ACLU's bullying the Boy Scouts out of government schools. It seems that even I missed the move the Boy Scouts really made.

Just last month, the American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), threatening to sue public schools that charter Boy Scout groups. The ACLU contends that schools' sponsorship amounts to religious discrimination and violates the separation of church and state. Baptist Press says according to information on the ACLU website, the group also views various Scout emphases -- such as allegiance to God and country, a resolve to help others, a commitment to remain morally straight, and character development -- worthy of legal action. 

In response to this latest legal warning, Boy Scout national spokesman Gregg Shields explains the BSA defused the threat simply by transferring the charters to parent-teacher organizations or churches.

"Boy Scout troops will still have the same rights to meet in school buildings as any other community-based group, but the charter will not be held by the school administration," he explains. "So we'll still be in the school; we'll still use the school building, if we did before -- simply the school administrator will not have to endure litigation from the ACLU."

Shields says the ACLU knows the Boy Scouts are prepared to defend themselves against endless litigation, and therefore decided to change its strategy and threaten third-party organizations like public school systems. Without this adjustment from the Scouts, he says, the situation could potentially be very expensive for schools.

They're still in the schools, just not “officially” as a chartered group under the school's authority. thumbs up for the Boy Scouts for out-smarting the ACLU. Defeating the bullies with brains, good example.

Why can't Hollywood get it that good guys win?

From the Ass. Press:

Family crowds spoke louder than fans of racy stories or shoot-'em-up action flicks last year at movie theaters, with PG-rated films hauling in more money than R-rated ones for the first time in 20 years.

PG titles grossed $2.3 billion domestically, compared to $2.1 billion for R-rated films, according to figures released Tuesday by the National Association of Theatre Owners. PG-13 movies did the most business with $4.4 billion.

Five of 2004's top-10 moneymakers were rated PG, which means they were open to all audiences, among them "Shrek 2,""The Incredibles" and "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban." Out of the top 25, only four carried R ratings, which prohibit those younger than 17 from attending unless accompanied by an adult.

The Ass. Press is playing footloose and fancy with their figures. Movie studios make more R-rated movies, so therefore there would naturally be more money made by R-rated flicks over the past years. What they don't do is compare the average return on R-rated movies as opposed to G and PG-rated movies.

Of the top ten grossing movies of all time listed on BoxOfficeMojo.com, only one was rated R, (The Passion of the Christ). One was rated PG-13 (Titanic) and the rest were PG. You actually have to go all the way down to number 24 (The Matrix Reloaded) before you find the next top grossing R-rated movie.

In spite of Hollywood's obsession with filth, family movies have made so much money that they've overcome the numbers game, and Hollywood is left looking for some other rationalization for focusing mostly on sex and gore in their new movies.

This joke is getting sick

From The Christian Post:

The U.S. Department of State has requested more time from Congress to decide what actions it should take against "countries of concern" regarding religious freedom.

A report in September on religious freedom selected Eritrea, Saudi Arabia, and Vietnam as countries of of particular concern. Various sanctions could be enacted against the countries under the international Religious Freedom Act. However, President bush is allowed to waive any such sanctions.

"We've been actively engaged with all three in working for improvements in respect for religious freedom in those countries," said deputy department spokesman Adam Ereli.

Both Saudi Arabia and Eritrea are members of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. Another member, Cuba, is urging the HRC expel one of the members it feels is the greatest human rights violator.

Speaking on the first day of the 61st Session of the commission, Cuban official Juan Antonio Fernández charged the HRC "is being shipwrecked by the weight of its increasing lack of credibility and prestige." He characterized the commission as a "sinking ship."

"It is sinking due to its inconsistencies and the impunity enjoyed by a few privileged beneficiaries of the irrational world order in which we live," said the director of multilateral affairs at the Cuban Foreign Ministry. 

"Cuba," he said, "comes to promote the noblest causes, and also to throw lies out the window, combat the impunity of the powerful and expose the hypocrisy of their lackeys." 

He pointed the finger directly at the U.S. government. 

"The membership of a superpower that subjugates human rights and restricts liberties reduces the legitimacy of this commission," said.

We should remove ourselves, from the Commission and the United Nations as a whole, and the kick the lying hypocrites out of our country.

Trouble's a brewin'

From WorldNetDaily:

A grassroots Jewish organization plans to bring 10,000 Jews next month to the heavily restricted Temple Mount to spark Israeli dialogue about reclaiming the holy site from its Muslim custodians.

Oh, they're gonna spark something alright. The hatred and intolerance of anti-Israel Palestinians will inevitably lead to clashes as they try to kill as many Jews as they can. Of course the Jews will be blamed, and called all kinds of names. Liberal idiots will then defend the terrorists as more Israeli civilians, women and children are slaughtered. All because Israelis would like to have the right to respect their most treasured site in their own land.

Meanwhile the Israeli Knesset (which, BTW, has Palestinian members -- how many Jews are members of the Palestinian's pretend government? Oh, that's right Jews are not even allowed to live in the Palestinian's territory.) ...anyway...the Knesset voted to keep Rachel's Tomb inside the security zone and under Israeli control. The security wall, built to keep Palestinian terrorists out will be placed so that the third holiest site to Jews, will remain a part of Israel.

Stealing from widows

From FoxNews:

Ashley Smith, the single mother who led police to alleged courthouse gunman Brian Nichols, will receive a reward of at least $10,000, the governor said Tuesday. 

"In my opinion, she absolutely deserves it," Gov. Sonny Perdue said.

The reward fund reached $60,000 on Friday, hours after Nichols allegedly shot a judge, a court reporter and a deputy and escaped from a downtown Atlanta courthouse. He is also accused of killing a federal agent that night as he eluded authorities....

Following the slayings, the state offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to Nichols' arrest: the FBI $20,000, the U.S. Marshals Service $25,000 and the Georgia Sheriff's Association $5,000.

The FBI and the sheriffs association said they had not yet decided who would get the reward money. A spokesman for the marshals service did not immediately return a call.

Are they cereal?!? Why is the world wouldn't she get it? If she doesn't get every penny of that reward the message will be sent out that offers of rewards for information leading to the capture of a wanted fugitive are bogus. Why even offer the reward if you're not going to give it to the person who did exactly what you said the reward was for? For crying out loud she's a widowed mother who single handedly brought a peaceful end to a violent rampage. What idiots are there in the FBI, the US Marshal Service and Georgia Sheriff's association that think they can publicly stiff Ashley Smith and not have most of the nation infuriated at them? Even Governor Perdue was making a fool of himself by acting as if he were doing some “noble thing” giving her the award she has every right to.

Maybe it's the water

In Canada, reading the Bible out loud is a hate crime, since the Bible, in no uncertain terms says homosexuality is sin. Now, in Canada, calling for the deaths of innocent Israeli citizens is not a hate crime.

Police have decided not to charge a controversial Muslim leader under Canada's hate-crime laws for suggesting on a television talk show last fall that all adult Israelis are "legitimate targets" for Palestinian terrorists.

Investigators with Halton Region police said that while the comments by Dr. Mohamed Elmasry "were described by many as [a] hate crime," they did not meet the legal definition.

"Although the comments would be considered distasteful to many, in this context they do not constitute a criminal offence," police said in a news release. "The comments were made during a free-flowing discussion between subject-matter experts who were encouraged to express their opinions openly on a topic of significant public interest."

Is it the cold weather? I hear that people go a little crazy when they're cooped up for long periods of time. Could that be it? Because whatever's going on up there, those Canadians are getting loonier and loonier every day.

I bet he gets unemployment

Police ticketed Roger Ashley, 41, last Saturday afternoon after an accident at Signal Knob Lane and Old Valley Pike in Strasburg, Virginia. His blood-alcohol level at the time of his arrest was 0.29, according to the arrest warrant — more than three times Virginia’s 0.08 legal limit. He was released on a personal recognizance bond after his driver's license was suspended.

At 7:05 p.m., dispatchers notified Strasburg Police Officer C.L. Bodkin that Ashley was driving from Middletown to Strasburg in a black Ford Explorer, according to Bodkin’s criminal complaint. 

“I was sitting at Signal Knob Lane and Mr. Ashley drove by me. I stopped him,” the complaint states. “He got out of his vehicle staggering. He had a strong odor of alcoholic beverages on his breath.” 

Bodkin asked Ashley to take some field sobriety tests, but Ashley said it wasn’t necessary because he was still drunk, Bodkin’s criminal complaint states. ... 

Ashley eventually took an Alco-Sensor test, charting a 0.25 blood-alcohol level.  Bodkin then arrested Ashley for driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license. Ashley was taken to the Shenandoah County Jail.  The charges are Class 1 misdemeanors, each of which is punishable by up to 12 months in jail or a $2,500 fine. A trial has been set for April 11.

Ashley is now in danger of losing his job -- as Chief of police of the nearby town of Middetown, Virginia.

Ya think?

The joys of socialized medicine

Trevor Smithson, a 53-year-old aeronautical engineer in Great Britain had been nagged to lose weight by his doctors for over ten years. In spite of his complaints, he was told by doctors that he was dangerously obese and had only himself to blame for his constant pain, chronic backache and circulation problems.

It was not until he finally went for a consultation at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London that doctors realised the truth: Mr Smith had developed a 25kg (55lb) malignant tumour over a decade. 

By the time it was removed last year, its size had displaced his other internal organs. He lost a kidney and a section of his colon in the operation, needing breathing support as his lungs recovered from being crushed by the tumour. 

Now Mr Smithson, who has been left partially disabled by the ordeal, has referred his complaint to the Healthcare Commission. “(It is) incomprehensible that the collective wisdom and equipment of Royal Berkshire Hospital could somehow manage not to find a 25kg malignant tumour over a period approximating to a decade,” he said.

Great system there, isn't it.

Sliding another inch into the slime

Since Hollywood, the Music Industry and the Democrat Party are still falling behind in their efforts to denigrate American culture to the lowest common denominator, dictionary maker Merriam-Webster, Inc, has officially added the term “wedgie” to their dictionary of the English language.

Main Entry: wedg·ie 
Pronunciation: 'we-jE
Function: noun
1 : a shoe having a wedge-shaped piece serving as the heel and joining the half sole to form a continuous flat undersurface
2 : the condition of having one's clothing wedged between the buttocks especially from having one's pants or underpants yanked up from behind as a prank -- often used with get or give

Note they don't even bother to refer to it as slang anymore.

Exporting our culture

German's are having a cow about the work policies required at German Wal-Marts:

The code forbids Wal-Mart employees from accepting presents from suppliers, dictates that employees may not fall in love with a colleague in a position of influence and requires workers to report colleagues immediately "if they observe that they have broken the rules." Non-compliance of the rules can lead to termination.

Apparently in Germany rules against kickbacks and sexual harassment are “voluntary”.
