Today in Cold War History
1964 – An unarmed United States Air Force T-39 Sabreliner on a training mission is shot down over Erfurt, East Germany, by a Soviet MiG-19.The occupants of the aircraft were Lieutenant Colonel Gerald K. Hannaford, Captain Donald Grant Millard and Captain John F. Lorraine. All three died,[4] becoming some of the few confirmed direct casualties of the Cold War in Europe.
1980 – USCGC Blackthorn collides with the tanker Capricorn while leaving Tampa, Florida and capsizes killing 23 Coast Guard crewmembers. Damage to the Blackthorn from the initial impact was not extensive. However, Capricorn ’​s anchor was ready to be let go. The anchor became embedded in the Blackthorn ’​s hull and ripped open the port side above the water line. Then as the two ships backed away from each other, the chain became taut. The force of the much larger ship pulling on it, caused Blackthorn to tip on her side until she suddenly capsized. Six off-duty personnel who had mustered when they heard the collision alarm, were trapped inside the ship. Several crew members who had just reported aboard tried to escape and in the process trapped themselves in the engine room. Though 27 crewmen survived the collision, 23 perished. The marine board determined that the cause of the collision was the failure of both vessels to keep well to the side of the channel which lay on each ship’s starboard (right) sides.
1981 – Ronald Reagan lifts remaining domestic petroleum price and allocation controls in the United States helping to end the 1979 energy crisis and begin the 1980s oil glut.
1982 – US Army general James L. Dozier is rescued by Italian anti-terrorism forces from captivity by the Red Brigades. For more than a month, Dozier’s right wrist and left ankle were chained to a steel cot, which was placed under a small tent. He was also forced to live under the “never-extinguished glare of an electric bulb.” Dozier’s captors also required him to wear earphones and listen to loud music. NOCS (a special operations unit of the Italian police) successfully carried out his rescue from an apartment in Padua, without firing a shot, capturing the entire terrorist cell.
1985 – Supergroup USA for Africa (United Support of Artists for Africa) records the hit single We Are the World, to help raise funds for Ethiopian famine relief.
1986 – Space Shuttle program: STS-51-L mission – Space Shuttle Challenger explodes after liftoff killing all seven astronauts on board.

Today in Cold War History
1951 – Nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site begins with a one-kiloton bomb dropped on Frenchman Flat.
1961 – Soviet submarine S-80 sinks with all hands lost. During the night of 26 January 1961, S-80 was operating in the Barents Sea at snorkel depth on its diesel engines. The ocean was at sea state 6 and air temperature was -5°C (23°F). At 01:27 on 27 January, the boat dropped below snorkel depth, which should have caused the automatic snorkel valve to shut, preventing water from entering the snorkel system. However, the de-icing system that should have warmed the valve with hot water from the diesel engines had been switched off, and the valve had become jammed with ice.
The diesel engines failed immediately as seawater flooded their air intakes. The machinist in the fifth compartment who discovered the flooding became confused by the complex array of valves, and did not shut the ventilation flapper valve quickly enough. By the time he located the correct handwheel, the valve spindle had been bent by the force of the flooding water. As the compartment filled, the boat’s trim became uncontrollable.
As its up-angle passed 45 degrees, the boat slowed, coming to a halt and then falling backward, gathering sternway and sinking until it grounded. The second, third, and fourth compartments were crushed, though 24 crewmen survived in the after compartments. Their attempts to escape the wrecked submarine using IDA-51 apparatuses failed, and all 68 officers and men of S-80 were lost. Their fate remained unknown for seven and a half years.
1967 – Astronauts Gus Grissom, Edward White and Roger Chaffee are killed in a fire during a test of their Apollo 1 spacecraft at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
1967 – The United States, United Kingdom, and Soviet Union sign the Outer Space Treaty in Washington, D.C., banning deployment of nuclear weapons in space, and limiting use of the Moon and other celestial bodies to peaceful purposes.
1973 – The Paris Peace Accords officially end the Vietnam War. Colonel William Nolde is killed in action becoming the conflict’s last recorded American combat casualty.
1980 – Through cooperation between the U.S. and Canadian governments, six American diplomats secretly escape hostilities in Iran in the culmination of the Canadian Caper.
1980 : The Rhodesian black nationalist leader Robert Mugabe returns to Rhodesia after five years in exile. Cheering crowds greeted Mr Mugabe’s arrival in the capital, Salisbury, from Mozambique where he has been gathering support for his Zimbabwe African National Union (Patriotic Front) or Zanu (PF) party.

Today in Cold War History
1948 – The Flag of Quebec is adopted and flown for the first time over the National Assembly of Quebec. The day is marked annually as Québec Flag Day.
1950 – American lawyer and government official Alger Hiss is convicted of perjury. On August 3, 1948, Whittaker Chambers, a former Communist Party member, testified under subpoena before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) that Hiss had secretly been a Communist, though not a spy, while in federal service. Called before HUAC, Hiss categorically denied the charge. When Chambers repeated his claim on nationwide radio, Hiss filed a defamation lawsuit against him.
During the pretrial discovery process, Chambers produced new evidence indicating that he and Hiss had been involved in espionage, which both men had previously denied under oath to HUAC. A federal grand jury indicted Hiss on two counts of perjury; Chambers admitted to the same offense but, as a cooperating government witness, was never charged. Although Hiss’s indictment stemmed from the alleged espionage, he could not be tried for that crime because the statute of limitations had expired.
1954 – The first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, is launched in Groton, Connecticut by Mamie Eisenhower, the First Lady of the United States.
1958 – The last Fokker C.X in military service, the Finnish Air Force FK-111 target tower, crashes, killing the pilot and winch-operator.
1960 – Little Joe 1B, a Mercury spacecraft, lifts off from Wallops Island, Virginia with Miss Sam, a female rhesus monkey on board.
1960 – Avianca Flight 671 crashes and burns upon landing at Montego Bay, Jamaica, killing 37. It is the worst air disaster in Jamaica’s history and the first for Avianca.
1968 – Vietnam War: Battle of Khe Sanh – One of the most publicized and controversial battles of the war begins. During the battle, a massive aerial bombardment campaign (Operation Niagara) was launched by the United States Air Force to support the Marine base. Over 100,000 tons of bombs (equivalent in destructive force to five Hiroshima-size atomic bombs) were dropped until mid-April by aircraft of the US Navy, Air Force, and Marines onto the surrounding areas of Khe Sanh. This was roughly 1,300 tons of bombs dropped daily–five tons for every one of the 20,000 NVA soldiers initially estimated to have been committed to the fighting at Khe Sanh. In addition, 158,000 large-caliber shells were delivered on the hills surrounding the base. This expenditure of aerial munitions dwarfs the amount of munitions delivered by artillery, which totals eight shells per NVA soldier believed to have been on the battlefield.
1968 – A B-52 bomber crashes near Thule Air Base in Greenland, contaminating the area after its nuclear payload ruptures. One of the four bombs remains unaccounted for after the cleanup operation is complete. The aircraft was carrying four hydrogen bombs on a Cold War “Chrome Dome” alert mission over Baffin Bay when a cabin fire forced the crew to abandon the aircraft before they could carry out an emergency landing at Thule Air Base. Six crew members ejected safely, but one who did not have an ejection seat was killed while trying to bail out. The bomber crashed onto sea ice in North Star Bay, Greenland, causing the conventional explosives aboard to detonate and the nuclear payload to rupture and disperse, which resulted in radioactive contamination. The contaminated snow was disposed of in the United States.
1976: The First Concordes with commercial passengers take off From London’s Heathrow Airport to Bahrain in the Persian Gulf and Paris Orly Airport to Rio de Janeiro .
1977 – United States President Jimmy Carter pardons nearly all American Vietnam War draft evaders, some of whom had emigrated to Canada.

Poll: Jeb, Mitt Viewed Less Favorably Since Announcing Potentia WH Runs

And so is the State of the Union Address for the most part.

Obama announces:

Tonight, after a breakthrough year for America, our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999. Our unemployment rate is now lower than it was before the financial crisis. More of our kids are graduating than ever before; more of our people are insured than ever before; we are as free from the grip of foreign oil as we’ve been in almost 30 years.

Not so Fast, Barrack. Your so-called fast-paced job creation doesn’t hold water. Most of the created jobs are low wage part time low skill temp work. Census data confirms median family income dropped nearly 4% since you took office. More proof that the wage increase of 40 cents per hour YOUR labor department is touting is not enough for American families to keep up. Barrack fails to mention that the labor participation rate is now at 62.7%, the lowest level since 1978. But that’s how you drive down the ‘unemployment’ numbers, don’t count those who gave up looking or who’s unemployment benefits ran out. Rather count everything that might be construed as a job created, i.e. the under employed.

The “More of our kids are graduating” line doesn’t tell the whole story either. You see Mr. Obama, The only reason there was a slight increase in graduations is because we have more children in the school system. It’s called population growth. The Graphs of graduation rates largely remains  flat with slight undulations up and down over the decade.

“More of our people are insured” bit also requires some scrutiny. Pre-Obamacare unisured was around 40 million, Post Obamacare insured is about 40 million. By most accounts, a slight .2% drop in the number of uninsured may be accurate. Does that justify the billions spent? With people forced to buy coverage for things they will never need, guess what? The American family loses again. Oh and the best part: The IRS gets to take your refund away. Also, the CBO (who have been very friendly with Obamacare) says in 2023 there will still be in excess of 30 million uninsured. By that time, the program will have cost in excess 1.3 Trillion, and that is likely another CBO underestimate. Remember Jonathan Gruber?

And now to oil! Barrack says “we are free from the grip of foreign oil”. As if he had a hand in this. Isn’t this precious from a guy who is looking to see electricity prices skyrocket. The guy who said boldly, “We cannot drill our way to lower oil prices”. All these drill permits that got us lower gas prices came from pre-Obama Presidents. Mr Veto is doing everything he can to block the XL pipeline. This President is no friend of cheap energy.

Barrack goes on to say:

Tonight, for the first time since 9/11, our combat mission in Afghanistan is over.

But as Politico points out: Actually, the bullets are still flying in Afghanistan.

But there’s little doubt those missions will involve what almost anyone would consider “combat” — American forces coming into contact with the enemy. In fact, Obama late last year issued an order explicitly authorizing U.S. commanders in Afghanistan to order air strikes if U.S. or allied troops are threatened by the Taliban. And the “counterterrorism” mandate Obama has cited in past could include raids by special operations troops on terrorist hideouts.

As the President continues his ramblings, He gets to his favorite part. I call it the “I got a letter from a woman who….” part.State of Union
In this case it’s the touching story of two love stuck youngsters thrown into a whirlwind of crisis that only Barrack can save them from. Yes its the moving story of Rebekah(former Democratic campaign staffer, and who has been used by Obama for political events in the past) and Ben Erler. Notice Rebekah matters most to this President. Ben scrapes by doing anything he can find, but Rebekah, she does the amazing! See enrolls in Community College. She ‘retools’ and now life is a bowl of cherries! Not exactly. Barrack created a new crisis for these two sparrows in a hurricane. They cant afford their payments on the students loans they took. They  can’t afford the childcare for their storm babies, Jack and Henry. And worse yet, Our love couple has no hope of buying a new car,taking a vacation, and saving for retirement. Ah, the joys of Obama’s ‘middle-class’ economics.
    Later in the speech, Barrack talks about the need for infrastructure. So 6 years go by, A 1 trillion dollar stimulus that promised shovel ready jobs and infrastructure, And we still don’t have it. Folks, the infrastructure line is a ghost from SOTUS’s past. It’s played. As is the I want to stop companies using ‘overseas loopholes’ bit.
Moving right along, Obama goes on to sing the praises of wind energy. “America is number one in wind power”.wt Well sorta, China actually has more capacity. Too bad Barrack didn’t mention that his EPA has been fining energy companies for bird strikes while at the same time encouraging for more turbine building. As Forbes points out, wind energy costs more. Again more pain for middle Americans.
Obama continues by praising his capitulation to Raul Castro and surrendering to Cuba, Modernizing  alliances in the Asia Pacific by “making sure that other nations play by the rules — in how they trade, how they resolve maritime disputes“. Really? China is expanding is maritime boundaries arbitrarily, staking claims in Japan, The Philippines, and the south China sea.
And finally, this whole tight-knit family bit is kind of reminds me of the ‘it takes a village’ garbage Hillary spewed. Allowing our vets to die while waiting for  treatment under your watch is hardly ‘tight-knit’ family like. Obama’s DOJ throwing our street cops under the bus isn’t family like either. Nor is your constant tactic of pitting one group of Americans against another.
   Mr Obama, You have laid no foundation, you have mostly crumbled it.
