Demjanjuk in court to fight extradition to Ukraine
Long story, short: John Demjanjuk is an 85 year old Russian immigrant who originally served as a Russian soldier, but was taken prisoner by the Germans in WW II. As a Russian prisoner of war he may have been assigned to Jewish death camps [his entire history is conjecture] Wilkipedia
He emigrated to the U.S. in 1951 and spent the most of his American life working at a Ford plant and raising a family. In the late seventies Nazi Hunter Simon
Wiesenthal with fellow U.S. Justice Department Nazi Hunters charged Demjanjuk with crimes against humanity for being the infamous "Ivan The Terrible," death camp Jew-killer. He was deported to Israel, and sentenced to hanging, but after languishing in prison for five years awaiting the death penalty, the Israeli Supreme Court judged that there was not enough evidence.
Wiesenthal's Nazi Hunters and U.S. Department of Justice Nazi Hunters have been pounding on this man ever since. Relentless. Unmerciful.
Demjanjuk has been under the Nazi hunter gun for various reasons, including the fact that he was not completely honest on his immigration application to the U.S.
Well, excuse me, why are an estimated 10 million illegal immigrants allowed to live and work in the U.S. today, but John Demjanjuk, who has been contributing to American Society for over thirty years be, may be stripped of his citizenship and deported because he cannot give a credible account to the nazi hunters in the Justice Department?
It has been so long since we have been involved in a full scale world war in the United States that, perhaps, we have no idea how much pandemonium and displacement is experienced in a world war. So, Demhanjuk cannot account for where he was at any particular time during WW II - just like millions of other victims of the war.
Maybe its time for Wiesenthal's and the Justice Department's Nazi hunters to see if there are any Jewish Capos still living in the United States. The Caposwere Jews who collaborated with Nazis in the WW II death camps.

Thanksgiving Proclamation by Abraham Lincoln (What Ya Going To Do About This One, Michael Newdow and MSM?)
This is the proclamation which set the precedent for America's national day of Thanksgiving. During his administration, President Lincoln issued many orders like this. For example, on November 28, 1861, he ordered government departments closed for a local day of thanksgiving.
The holiday we know today as Thanksgiving was recommended to Lincoln by Sarah Josepha Hale, a prominent magazine editor. Her letters to Lincoln urged him to have the "day of our annual Thanksgiving made a National and fixed Union Festival." The document below sets apart the last Thursday of November "as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise."
According to an April 1, 1864 letter from John Nicolay, one of Lincoln's secretaries, this document was written by Secretary of State William Seward, and the original was in his handwriting. Fellow Cabinet member Gideon Welles recorded in his diary on October 3 that he complimented Seward on his work. A year later, the manuscript was sold to benefit Union troops and since then has disappeared.
By the President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln
The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.
By the President: Abraham Lincoln

The following was heard on a Youngstown, Ohio (Big GM Lordstown Plant location) radio station 570 WKBN, Monday, when GM announced the closing of 9 plants and the firing of 30,000 workers.
The statement that Republicans should be blamed for GM's troubles was made by no less than Rick Wagoner, President of General Motors, North American Division. Fax was sent in CAPS.
DEAR RICK WAGONER, PRESIDENT OF GENERAL MOTORS NORTH AMERICA;
I HEARD YOU THIS MORNING ON A TALK RADIO PROGRAM BLAMING REPUBLICANS FOR THE MASSIVE FIRINGS AND PLANT SHUTDOWNS THAT GM IS PLANNING.
YOU SAID, "THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO LOWER UNITED STATES ECONOMIC STANDARDS SO THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD MAY IMPROVE ITS ECONOMY."
I BEG YOUR PARDON, MR WAGONER, I BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN THE DEMOCRATS POSITION TO: DESTROY PUBLIC EDUCATION; PROHIBIT ALTERNATIVE OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION; RESTRICT ENVIROMENTAL POLLUTION BEYOND WHAT IS NECESSARY, THUS MAKING IT HARDER FOR AMERICAN COMPANIES TO COMPETE; DEPRIVE BUSINESES OF PROFITS BY FORCING THE HIRING OF UNQUALIFIED WORKERS VIA AFFIRMATIVE ACTION LAWS; SUPPORT THE HIGH COST OF LITIGATION FOR BUSINESSES; CONSTANTLY PUSH FOR HIGHER TAXATION, SPOIL UNIONS, ETC.
NO, MR WAGONER, THE REPUBLICANS HAVE WANTED THE U.S. TO EXCEL, WHILE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN HISTORICALLY ANTI-BUSINESS AND VERY PRO NEW WORLD ORDER.

The below was faxed to Pennsylvania's John Murtha by a disability retired Vietnam vet who has noticed that the Viet Vets who have done REALLY WELL since the Vietnam War are the ones who sucked up to the same liberalism which defeated the Vietnam War effort ... John Murtha, John Kerrey, Bob Kerry, John McCain. . . and more lately, Marine Iraq veteran Paul Hackett from Ohio who called President Bush an "S.O.B." He'll be running for the Ohio Congress as a John Kerrey anti-war "hero," Lord unwilling.
Fax sent in CAPS
DEAR REPRESENTATIVE JOHN MURTHA;
I ALSO AM A FORMER MARINE WHO SERVED IN VIETNAM FOR 16 MONTHS, BUT BEFORE MY SECOND TOUR OF DUTY ENDED, I WAS MEDEVACED OUT OF COUNTRY AND EVENTUALLY DISABILITY RETIRED - OVER 30 YEARS AGO.
IF THE TRUTH BE KNOWN, SIR, IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS THAT THE IRAQ WAR IS GOING A THOUSAND TIMES BETTER THAN NAM EVER DID - EVEN WITH THE CONSTANT ONSLAUGHT OF DISCOURAGEMENT BY A SUBVERSIVE, UNDERMINING MEDIA AND THE BARRAGE OF CRITICISM BY THE POLITICALLY SELFISH LIB DEMOCRATS.
MAY IT ALSO BE KNOWN THAT THERE WAS ANOTHER HIGHLY DECORATED, WELL HONORED WAR HERO IN AMERICAN HISTORY (NO, NOT JOHN KERREY) WHO WAS WOUNDED WHILE FIGHTING FOR THE UNITED STATES - BEFORE HE 'RETROGRADED TO THE REAR' AND JOINED THE BRITISH, OUR ENEMIES AT THE TIME: BENEDICT ARNOLD.
HE THOUGHT FOR SURE THAT THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR WAS A MISTAKE AND, LIKE YOURSELF, WOULD HAVE ENJOYED AN IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL OF THE JUST-BORN UNITED STATES FROM THE WAR. GIVE PEACE (FOR IRAQ) A CHANCE.

Fax sent to CEOs of Parent Companies Of History Channel which portrays the Crusaders in history as the evil antagonists against the more innocent Muslims . [FAX WAS SENT IN CAPS]
DEAR PRESIDENT OF HEARST, NBC, ABC, PARENT COMPANIES OF A&E - ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT TV (HISTORY CHANNEL);
IT HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY CLEAR THAT THE HISTORY CHANNEL HAS REALLY BECOME THE HEARSTORY CHANNEL.
ABC, NBC, AND HEARST ARE EVIDENTLY GUIDING YOUR EDITORIAL POLICY WHILE ALTERING HISTORY.
I TRIED TO WATCH YOUR BIASED PORTRAYAL OF THE CRUSADES WHICH DEPICTED THE CRUSADERS AS THE WORSE POSSIBLE BUNGLING, DECEPTIVE LOUTS, WHILE MUSLIMS WERE GENERALLY TREATED AS A MORE "CONCILIATORY" GROUP. WE SEE THIS SAME BIAS IN THE NEWS AS PRESENTED BY ABC, NBC, AND HEARST- YOUR PARTNERS. NO COINCIDENCE.
ALSO, DON'T YOU THINK YOU HAVE CENTERED ON HITLER ENOUGH, AND THAT IT MAY BE TIME TO ALSO TELL OF THE HORRIBLE HISTORY OF ATROCITIES COMMITTED BY SOVIET AND CHINESE COMMUNISTS?
INDEED, THE HISTORY CHANNEL IS ACTUALLY THE HEARSTORY CHANNEL, AND IT IS JUST SO MUCH CRAP.
SINCERELY, JC AKRON

Time To Send The Marines, Again?
The Marine Corps were founded on November 10, 1775 by the Continental Congress in Philadelphia, and took part in the quasi-war with France and against Barbary Pirates...
Despite CNN's and National Public Radio's classification of terrorists as "disaffected youth," the 300 year old Lloyd's of London insurance broker is reclassifying Muslim "pirates" as "terrorists."
"There's a growing feeling that, as recent attacks have shown, the type of piracy risk has moved on," Mr Smith said. "If you've got guys in combat gear with rocket-propelled grenade-launchers heading towards you, how do you know if they're pirates or terrorists? It will help with arguments that might occur later on." business.timesonline.co.uk
More Piracy Than Reported BBC
The greatest number of attacks overall were off Indonesia, with 61 of a total of 205 attacks reported worldwide.
The International Maritime Bureau (IMB) says in the nine-month period of 2005, 141 ships were boarded, 15 fired upon and 11 were hijacked. Of the 259 crewmembers taken hostage, 12 are still missing.
Pirates Lure Cruies Ship With Distress Call
The most alarming rise in attacks was off the eastern and north-eastern coast of Somalia, where attacks shot up from one in 2004 to 19 in 2005. In one incident, the report says, a vessel was lured closer to the shore by pirates who set off distress flares.

DEAR SENATOR/REPRESENTATIVE X;
IT IS INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND WHY SO MANY IN CONGRESS ARE OPPOSED TO MOST ALTERNATIVE DOMESTIC OIL SUPPLIES, EVEN AFTER KNOWING THAT THE U.S. IS AT THE MERCY OF FOREIGN OIL PRODUCERS.
ALASKA REFUGE OIL HAS A MICROSCOPIC FOOTPRINT, YET IS NOW OPPOSED BY EVEN REPUBLICANS. DO ENVIROMENTALISTS HAVE THAT MUCH LOBBY POWER THAT THEY CAN TAKE OVER THE SOULS OF OTHERWISE SENSIBLE OFFICIALS, CONVINCING THEM THAT WE, OIL STARVED AMERICANS, SHOULD REPEL ALL CONSIDERATION TO EXPLORE MORE DOMESTIC WAYS OF OBTAINING HEATING OIL, ETC.?
A NORMAL CITIZEN WOULD THINK THERE MIGHT BE SOME SORT OF DEVIOUS PLOT IN ORDER TO ECONOMICALLY WEAKEN THE UNITED STATES THROUGH THESE SORT OF TACTICS.
WHAT OTHER MOTIVATION WOULD THEY HAVE? PS THERE IS A VAST RESERVE OF NATURAL GAS IN THE SOUTHWESTERN SECTION OF OHIO. MAY WE DRILL FOR IT?
