In 47 BC, Julius Caesar visited Tarsus on his way to Pontus, where he met enthusiastic support, but where, according to CiceroCassius was planning to kill him at this point. 3 years later, Julius was backstabbed to death. 17, Germanicus returned to Rome as a conquering hero; he celebrated a triumph for his victories over the CherusciChatti and other German tribes west of the Elbe. Two years later, Germanicus was dead under suspicious circumstances. Some said he was poisoned on order of Tiberius. Some said he was the Roman equivalent of Alexander the Great, dying young having achieved much. He was a bit like Kennedy, his alleged killer was killed before being questioned. 451, Battle of Avarayr between Armenian rebels and the Sassanid Empire took place. The Empire defeated the Armenians militarily but guaranteed them freedom to openly practice Christianity. 946, King Edmund I of England was murdered by a thief whom he personally attacked while celebrating St Augustine's Mass Day. He had been feasting with nobles when he spotted the exiled thief Leofa. He personally fought Leofa and was killed, as was Leofa immediately after by others.

They had right to fear the sentence because the Franciscans were caught in a power play between the Pope and the Holy Roman Emperor. Ockham became famous for his Razor, and he chose the best, simplest solution by making the Emperor his patron. William was not accused of heresy, merely of using works deemed heretical. 1538, Geneva expelled John Calvin and his followers from the city. Calvin lived in exile in Strasbourg for the next three years. 1573, the Battle of Haarlemmermeer, a naval engagement in the Dutch War of Independence. 1637, Pequot War: A combined Protestant and Mohegan force under the English Captain John Mason attacked a Pequot village in Connecticutmassacring approximately 500 Native Americans. 1644, Portuguese Restoration War: Portuguese and Spanish forces both claimed victory in the Battle of Montijo. 1647, Alse Young, hanged in Hartford, Connecticut, became the first person executed as a witch in the British American colonies. The records do not exist as to why she was thought to be a witch. But it is doubtful she performed magic. There is a suggestion that she had no son, and one daughter, and so stood to inherit on the event of her husband's death. But she died first. 1736, Battle of Ackia 1770, The Orlov Revolt, an attempt to revolt against the Ottoman Empire before the Greek War of Independence, ended in disaster for the Greeks. Russia had egged Greece on, but wiped her hands after the loss.

He was clearly a mentally ill liar and may have stabbed himself to death a few years later. 1830, the Indian Removal Act was passed by the U.S. Congress; it was signed into law by Democrat President Andrew Jackson two days later. 1857, Dred Scott was emancipated by the Blow family, his original owners. 1864 Montana was organised as a United States territory. 1865, American Civil War: the Confederate General Edmund Kirby Smith, commander of the Confederate Trans-Mississippi division, was the last full general of the Confederate Army to surrender, at Galveston, Texas. 1869, Boston University was chartered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 1879, Russia and the United Kingdom signed the Treaty of Gandamak establishing an Afghan state. 1896, Nicholas II became the last Tsar of Imperial Russia.

The rights to the resource were quickly acquired by the Anglo-Persian Oil Company. 1917, Several powerful tornadoes ripped through Illinois, including the city of Mattoon, killing 101 people and injuring 689. 1918, the Democratic Republic of Georgia was established. 1923, 24 Hours of Le Mans, was first held, and has since been run annually in June.

By the time he sat down in the early hours of the following morning, he had spoken for 10 hours. 1938, in the United States, the House Un-American Activities Committee began its first session. Which fit in well with the anniversary of a witch hanging. 1940, World War IIOperation Dynamo – In northern France, Allied forces began a massive evacuation from Dunkirk, France.

For twenty two years I have been responsibly addressing an issue, and I cannot carry on. I am petitioning the Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott to remedy my distress. I leave it up to him if he chooses to address the issue. Regardless of your opinion of conservative government, the issue is pressing. Please sign my petition at https://www.change.org/en-AU/petitions/tony-abbott-remedy-the-persecution-of-dd-ball

Or the US President at

Mr Ball, I will not sign your petition as it will do no good, but I will share your message and ask as many of friends who read it, to share it also. Let us see if we cannot use the power of the internet to spread the word of these infamous killings. As a father and a former soldier, I cannot, could not, justify ignoring this appalling action by the perpetrators, whoever they may; I thank you Douglas. You are wrong about the petition. Signing it is as worthless and meaningless an act as voting. A stand up guy would know that. - ed

Lorraine Allen Hider I signed the petition ages ago David, with pleasure, nobody knows what it's like until they've been there. Keep heart David take care.


I have begun a bulletin board (http://theconservativevoice.freeforums.netwhich will allow greater latitude for members to post and interact. It is not subject to FB policy and so greater range is allowed in posts. Also there are private members rooms in which nothing is censored, except abuse. All welcome, registration is free.
=== Bolt Report Items ===
On Bolt Report an ongoing policy is that any Islam post can only be on the pinned leader. Normal rules apply in that if it is merely foul and abusive it will be deleted. Otherwise comments are welcome.

Dear Members (YOU MUST READ THIS THREAD)
As of today, the rules of this forum are going to be enforced more rigorously. This includes the instant removal of members who personally abuse other members of this forum.
Whilst the use of bad language is often invoked as colourful descriptors of politicians, we ask that people refrain from the C word as there are many people on this forum who do not want to see that as part of every day language here.
Blatant racism, homophobia and religious slurs will be removed from the forum, along with the person who posted them.
Crass, vile & vitriolic hate posts will also be removed along with the person who posts those comments or threads.
Generally we will give people a 24 hour time out to cool off after they have been removed and those people will be welcome back to the forum once they have applied via an admin..... we will however, permanently remove repeat offenders with a rule of "3 strikes and you're out".
We are trying to encourage legitimate debate, conversation and discussion on this forum where people are able to have free thought and their own opinions without "mob" rule attacking them for thinking differently, however, in saying this, members who are here to deliberately cause trouble or "troll" will be removed without warning.
The standard of this forum needs to be better and people are responsible for their own behaviour.... bullying of others or bullying of admins will also result in that person being removed.
Legitimate criticism is appreciated, along with logical and rational commentary.
Admins decisions are final.... so make of this forum what you want of it and do not complain if you are removed for behaviour that is contrary to the posting protocols.
If you feel intimated or threatened by another person, contact an admin immediately so the situation can be monitored and mediated.
Regards
Admins

Happy birthday and many happy returns Lapskin Lee and Jenny Nguyen. Born on the same day, across the years. It is Mother's Day in France, Poland ans Sweden. Armenians were defeated by the Sassanid in 451, but this gave them religious freedom 33 years later. In 1938, the house un-American activities committee began, and Nixon would become famous .. A day of choices. Your day.
