    Hi there, Kids! This is one of those days when there is *more* to include so sorry for the length. Here’s your Day in (Mostly) American History: March 16

    1621: Native American chief visits colony of Plymouth, Mass
    1641: General court declares Rhode Island a democracy & adopts new constitution

    1751: “Father of the Constitution” born. On this day in 1751, James Madison, drafter of the Constitution, recorder of the Constitutional Convention, author of the Federalist Papers and fourth president of the United States, is born on a plantation in Virginia. Madison is best remembered for his critical role in the Constitutional Convention of 1787, where he presented the Virginia Plan to the assembled delegates in Philadelphia and oversaw the difficult process of negotiation and compromise that led to the drafting of the final Constitution. Madison’s published Notes on the Convention are considered the most detailed and accurate account of what occurred in the closed-session debates. (Madison forbade the publishing of his notes until all the participants were deceased.) After the Constitution was submitted to the people for ratification, Madison collaborated with John Jay and Alexander Hamilton on The Federalist Papers, a series of pamphlets that argued for the acceptance of the new government. Madison penned the most famous of the pamphlets, Federalist No. 10, which made an incisive argument for the ability of a large federation to preserve individual rights.

    1861: Edward Clark became Governor of Texas, replacing Sam Houston, who was evicted from the office for refusing to take an oath of loyalty to the Confederacy (US Civil War)

    1865: Battle of Averasboro NC (1,500 casualities)

    1881: Barnum & Bailey Circus debuts
    1882: US Senate ratifies treaty establishing the Red Cross

    1903: Judge Roy Bean, the self-proclaimed β€œLaw West of the Pecos,” dies in Langtry, Texas.
    A saloonkeeper and adventurer, Bean’s claim to fame rested on the often humorous and sometimes-bizarre rulings he meted out as a justice of the peace in western Texas during the late 19th century. Bean was often deliberately humorous or bizarre in his rulings, once fining a dead man $40 for carrying a concealed weapon. He threatened one lawyer with hanging for using profane language when the hapless man referred to the β€œhabeas corpus” of his client. Less amusing was Bean’s decision to free a man accused of killing a Chinese rail worker on the grounds that Bean knew of no law making it a crime β€œto kill a Chinaman.”

    1910: Barney Oldfield uses a Benz to break the existing records at Daytona Beach Road Course (131.25mph)

    1945: Allies secure Iwo Jima. On this day, the west Pacific volcanic island of Iwo Jima is declared secured by the U.S. military after months of fiercely fighting its Japanese defenders.
    The Americans began applying pressure to the Japanese defense of Iwo Jima in February 1944, when B-24 and B-25 bombers raided the island for 74 days straight. It was the longest pre-invasion bombardment of the war, necessary because of the extent to which the Japanese–21,000 strong–fortified the island, above and below ground, including a network of caves. Underwater demolition teams (β€œfrogmen”) were dispatched by the Americans just before the actual invasion to clear the shores of mines and any other obstacles that could obstruct an invading force. In fact, the Japanese mistook the frogmen for an invasion force and killed 170 of them.

    1966: Gemini 8 launched with Armstrong & Scott, aborted after 6.5 orbits

    1968: [Vietnam] My Lai massacre occurs. In what would become the most publicized war atrocity committed by U.S. troops in Vietnam, a platoon slaughters between 200 and 500 unarmed villagers at My Lai 4, a cluster of hamlets in the coastal lowlands of the northernmost region of South Vietnam.
    My Lai 4 was situated in a heavily mined region where Viet Cong guerrillas were firmly entrenched and numerous members of the participating platoon had been killed or maimed during the preceding month. During the Vietnam War, U.S. troops frequently bombed and shelled the province of Quang Ngai, believing it to be a stronghold for Viet Cong (VC). In March 1968, a platoon of soldiers called Charlie Company received word that Viet Cong guerrillas had taken cover in the Quang Ngai village of Son My. Led by Lieutenant William L. Calley, the platoon entered one of the village’s four hamlets, My Lai 4, on a search-and-destroy mission on the morning of March 16. Instead of guerrilla fighters, they found unarmed villagers, most of them women, children and old men. The men of Charlie Company were angry, frightened and struggling for survival in March 1968. Since their arrival 3 months prior, they had suffered over 40 casualties. Just two days before the massacre the company had lost a popular sergeant to a land mine. These events would have had a large contribution to the cause of the atrocity.
    The soldiers had been advised before the attack by army command that all who were found in My Lai could be considered VC or active VC sympathizers, and told to destroy the village. Still, they acted with extraordinary brutality, raping and torturing villagers before killing them and dragging dozens of people, including young children and babies, into a ditch and executing them with automatic weapons. The massacre reportedly ended when an Army helicopter pilot, Warrant Officer Hugh Thompson, landed his aircraft between the soldiers and the retreating villagers and threatened to open fire if they continued their attacks.

    1968: General Motors produces its 100 millionth automobile, the Oldsmobile Toronado.
    1969: Boston Bruins scores an NHL record 8 goals in 1 period

    1971: 13th Grammy Awards: Bridge over Troubled Water (Simon and Garfunkel; Contemporary Song), Close to You (Carpenters; Best Performance by a Duo or Group); Ain’t No Sunshine (Bill Withers; Best Rhythm and Blues Song)

    1972: John Lennon and Yoko Ono are served with deportation papers. Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, had been living in New York for a year, and they wanted to stay. But it happened also to be the year President Nixon was running for re-election. Opposition to the Vietnam War had reached a peak, and Lennon and Ono often showed up at antiwar rallies to sing “Give Peace a Chance” β€” and to tell their fans that the best way to give peace a chance was to vote against Nixon. The Nixon White House responded by ordering Lennon deported. The administration said Lennon had been admitted to the country improperly. He had pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of cannabis possession in London in 1968, and immigration law at the time banned the admission of anyone convicted of any drug offense. The Lennon deportation proceedings continued even after Nixon’s reelection in 1972, and then through the Watergate crisis. In the end, of course, Nixon left the White House, and Lennon β€” and Ono β€” stayed in the U.S.

    1974: 1st performance at new Grand Ole Opry House at Opryland in Nashville

    1978: Amoco Cadiz spills 223,000 tons of crude oil off French coast One of the world’s worst supertanker disasters takes places when the Amoco Cadiz wrecks off the coast of Portsall, France, on this day in 1978. Although the 68 million gallons of oil that spilled from the Cadiz has since been exceeded by other spills, this remains the largest shipwreck in history.
    The Cadiz was 65 meters longer than the Titanic and capable of carrying more than 250,000 tons of crude oil.

    1985: Associated Press correspondent Terry Anderson taken hostage in Beirut; the AP’s bureau chief in Beirut at the time, was kidnapped by a Shia militant group in Lebanon. He would be held 2, 454 days in captivity.

    1988: US sends 3,000 soldiers to Nicaragua’s neighbor Honduras. As part of his continuing effort to put pressure on the leftist Sandinista government in Nicaragua, President Ronald Reagan orders over 3,000 U.S. troops to Honduras, claiming that Nicaraguan soldiers had crossed its borders. As with so many of the other actions taken against Nicaragua during the Reagan years, the result was only more confusion and criticism.
    Since taking office in 1981, the Reagan administration had used an assortment of means to try to remove the leftist Sandinista government of Nicaragua. President Reagan charged that the Sandinistas were pawns of the Soviet Union and were establishing a communist beachhead in the Western Hemisphere, though there was little evidence to support such an accusation. Nonetheless, Reagan’s administration used economic and diplomatic pressure attempting to destabilize the Sandinista regime. Reagan poured millions of dollars of U.S. military and economic aid into the so-called β€œContras,” anti-Sandinista rebels operating out of Honduras and Costa Rica. By 1988, however, the Contra program was coming under severe criticism from both the American people and Congress. Many Americans came to see the Contras as nothing more than terrorist mercenaries, and Congress had acted several times to limit the amount of U.S. aid to the Contras.
    In an effort to circumvent Congressional control, the Reagan administration engaged in what came to be known as the Iran-Contra Affair, in which arms were illegally and covertly sold to Iran in order to fund the Contras. This scheme had come to light in late 1987. Indeed, on the very day that Reagan sent U.S. troops to Honduras, his former national security advisor John Poindexter and former National Security staffer Lt. Col. Oliver North were indicted by the U.S. government for fraud and theft related to Iran-Contra.

    1988: Federal grand jury indicts Col. Oliver L. North, Rear Adm. John M. Poindexter in Iran-Contra affair [Interesting for further study of a historical prominent presidential scandal…]

    So, my understanding is that some judge is HI stopped our President’s immigration EO, and that the 9th Circuit denied en banc hearing of the first appeal. However, our President is saying he will pursue this to the Supreme Court. There are those who feel that l he should just order his people to start enforcing the EO. Personally I would love to see this happen. This is really a constitutional crisis unfolding right in front of us. Amazing times…

    A MAN IN THE WOMEN’S RESTROOM AT DISNEYLAND

    http://www.thegetrealmom.com/blog/womensrestroom

    I didn’t know if I was going to write this blog or not. A part of me was scared it’d be shared as some transgender hot piece about yet another homophobic mom lashing out at Disney and then I’d have to deal with the wrath of the internet telling me to kill myself. So let me be clear. This isn’t that story. This is a story about a biological man in the women’s restroom.

    I’ve lived in Los Angeles for over a decade and have seen my fair share of transgender/gender fluid people. They in no way offend me. I’d consider myself pretty progressive and tolerant of most things…except maybe people who identify as a person wearing socks with sandals. We all have our line in the sand and that’s totally mine. But how transgender people feel, how they choose to dress or any surgeries they get, don’t infringe on any parts of my life, so I support their decision to live as they see fit. I’ve also seen my fair share of transgender women in the women’s restroom before. Not ALL the time. But over the past few years, I’d say 4-5 that I noticed. Men…who were in some stage of transition and making every attempt to be a woman from mascara to heels. Transgenders who certainly felt comfortable in the women’s room and probably frightened to go into the men’s. At these times, I smiled…I peed…and life went on. But 2 weeks ago something very different happened. …

    Even a progressive woman realizes that the situation as it exists isn’t good.

      THIS is exactly the kind of thing to be expected by these weird laws now. And, I understand why no one said anything. What if a woman there had said something and he had gone over and punched her? I remember reading an article where a big, ugly, obvious man, dressed in women’s clothes punched a woman in the face for questioning him. And, the woman who wrote the article was right to keep silent because she was in charge of two little children who could have been hurt if something had started.

      She is right, this puts women in danger. I have to say, I am just cantankerous enough at my age to have walked to the door and screamed out very loudly, “There’s a man in the women’s restroom!” Not caring what anybody thought. At least 9 out of 10 of the women in the restroom would probably have been grateful.

        But, you are a man. Thinking like a man. I’m not going all women’s libber on you, but when you know it is likely that even if a man is not much bigger than you are, he is probably much stronger and more aggressive, you don’t approach him head on. I might have gone back outside and started screaming that we needed help, etc. But, I would not have confronted him. I would have probably just made one gigantic scene until people came to see what was going on.

    Russian bank tells DOJ mysterious Trump computer connections may have been hacker hoax

    Alfa Bank has insisted since media stories began appearing last fall about the computer communications — known as Domain Name Server lookups — that it has never had a relationship to Trump or any of his companies and that any computer connections between the two parties’ computers were innocuous. The resumption of the computer pings started last month, and Alfa’s cybersecurity experts traced evidence that the activity was actually being spoofed — or hacked –through a third party from a masked computer address inside the United States, the source said.

    Like a return address

    The attacks attempted to trigger verification signals between Alfa Bank and a server associated with the Trump Organization, the source said.

    The source said the spoofing attempt is equivalent to someone in the U.S. sending an empty envelope to the Trump Towers but putting on the envelope a return address in Russia, causing the Trump server to falsely return the communication back to Moscow.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.
