Événements importants de ce jour dans l'histoire 16 janvier

1995 : Des avalanches consécutives à de fortes pluies balaient deux bus de l'autoroute entre Srinagar et Jammu au Cachemire. Deux jours de plus d'avalanches dans la région ont finalement tué plus de 200 personnes, 5 000 autres ont dû être secourues.

Le pétrolier ravitailleur "Jessica" s'est échoué sur l'île de San Cristobal dans les îles Galapagos, les biologistes marins mettent en garde contre une catastrophe écologique pour l'archipel. (Le navire a fui 180 000 gallons de pétrole, ce qui a causé une catastrophe écologique avec jusqu'à 62% de la population d'iguanes marins sur une île tuée.

Bank Of America, la plus grande des États-Unis, recevra 20 milliards de dollars d'aides nouvelles du gouvernement américain et 118 milliards de dollars de garanties contre les mauvais actifs. Cela s'ajoute aux 25 milliards de dollars d'injections de capital du programme de secours aux actifs en difficulté, connu sous le nom de Tarp Bank of America, qui ont déjà été reçus.

Jon Huntsman, candidat à l'investiture présidentielle républicaine, a annoncé qu'il mettait fin à sa course à la Maison Blanche après avoir terminé troisième des primaires du New Hampshire. Huntsman a terminé sa campagne en approuvant Mitt Romney comme son choix de candidat.

2013 : Un attentat suicide dans le nord de l'Irak a fait au moins dix morts et quatre-vingt-dix autres blessés devant un bureau du Parti démocrate kurde.

La première session du Tribunal spécial pour le Liban s'est ouverte ce jour, près de neuf ans après l'assassinat de l'ancien Premier ministre libanais, Rafik Hariri, au centre du procès. Le procès est le premier de l'histoire du droit qui mettrait en vedette un tribunal international pour juger une affaire fondée sur des accusations de terrorisme. Il s'agit également du premier procès depuis les procès de Nuremberg qui rechercherait des poursuites « par contumace », car tous les suspects ont disparu.


1995: Robert E. Brennan, ancien président de First Jersey Securities Inc., est condamné par un juge fédéral à payer 71,5 millions de dollars d'amendes et de pénalités pour fraude « massive et continue » en valeurs mobilières. Le juge décide que First Jersey – dont les publicités télévisées montraient Brennan à côté de l'hélicoptère de son entreprise, mettant les téléspectateurs au défi de « Venez grandir avec nous » – a trompé les investisseurs d'au moins 27 millions de dollars et a manipulé illégalement les prix d'au moins six centimes actions qu'elle avait souscrites.

Le Wall Street Journal, 21 juin 1995, p. B4.

1991: International Business Machines Corp. prévient que ses revenus du deuxième trimestre chuteront d'au moins 5% et qu'il manquera d'environ 50 cents les estimations de bénéfices des analystes de près de 1 $ par action. Il s'agit de la première baisse des revenus annuels d'IBM depuis 1946, plongeant les analystes de Wall Street dans une profonde inquiétude quant à l'avenir des actions technologiques. Cependant, certains voient quelques bonnes affaires : Barry Willman de Sanford C. Bernstein recommande Digital Equipment, Steve Milunovich de Salomon Bros. aime Data General et Mark Stahlman d'Alex. Brown est optimiste sur Commodore International. (Dans quelques années, aucune d'entre elles n'existera encore en tant qu'entreprise publique.)

Television, FDR and the 1940 Presidential Conventions

This year marks a major turning point in Presidential nominating conventions with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The quadrennial exercises in party politics have without question evolved over the years. During FDR’s active life in national politics, the conventions were raucous affairs, full of intrigue and electoral horse trading. Presidents and candidates were made and broken at them. It was all part of the process, but visible to few Americans.

In 1940, the conventions remained key to Presidential politics. Though Roosevelt held firm control of party machinery, he was seeking an unprecedented third term with no guarantee of re-nomination. There was also the thorny question of the Vice Presidency. John Nance Garner was being retired. The Republicans faced a wide open field after two disastrous national elections. Anything could happen at a convention. FDR knew it.

The 1940 conventions would also prove precedent setting for another reason—television. Broadcast TV was in its infancy in 1940, and commercially available sets had only been available since the previous year. Yet one national network, NBC, comprised of three stations, had grand broadcasting plans. Philadelphia would host the Republicans, and NBC had a coaxial cable connection there from New York City, enabling almost gavel-to-gavel coverage.

The Republican Convention broadcasts in June were enormously successful for NBC. Though viewers were scarce—only several thousand sets had been sold—the network coverage proved the viability of TV for major events. The convention turned out to be an exciting affair with dark horse candidate Wendell Willkie emerging as the nominee. He appeared live on TV for a five-minute acceptance speech to deafening cheers from the crowd. It was riveting.

Press coverage of the broadcasts was widely laudatory. Though television lights were glaringly bright and hot, forcing some correspondents, including NBC commentators to don sunglasses in the arena, lucky viewers were mesmerized. The broadcasts ran six to eight hours daily whereas radio coverage was fragmentary. After watching Willkie on the convention broadcast, one columnist noted that the Indiana Republican, a dynamic, colorful orator, was made for TV. He judged FDR better suited to radio.

The Democrats hosted their 1940 convention in Chicago. This presented a dilemma for NBC. The network wanted live coverage, but limited television technology made it impossible. So NBC developed another plan. Partnering with American Pathe newsreels, they would fly 1000 feet of film (the length of a standard 16 mm film reel or about ten minutes worth of film) to NYC, and each day broadcast filmed highlights instead–not ideal, but better than nothing.

Recognizing the success of the Republican coverage, and knowing they had an unusual opponent in Wendell Willkie, Democrats agreed to this arrangement. Each day at 3:30 PM and 9:00 PM, the network would broadcast the ten-minute films. With no plans to attend the convention, FDR approved the plan. He would follow the convention by radio and telephone from the White House—not by TV.

Though FDR had embraced radio and played an outsize role in popularizing the medium for political and policy communications, he did not do so for television, though he held the distinction of being the first President to appear on TV at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. We can speculate about his general disinterest in television. Maybe he thought the infant medium was too limited, or maybe he thought Willkie was better on TV, too.

FDR had agreed to the installation of a television at the White House in late 1938. However, that plan had been shelved after the manufacturer publicized the effort in order to sell television sets. He did allow NBC to install one at Springwood, his Hyde Park home, in mid-1939, but he seemed more interested in having the technicians service his radios. A TV did eventually get installed at the White House, but it was more of a curiosity than a source of information or entertainment.

The 1940 Democratic National Convention also proved an exciting affair. FDR had played coy about a third term, though he wanted re-nomination. After a slow start to plans for a convention draft, he dispatched Eleanor Roosevelt to Chicago to speak on his behalf, proving his political prowess once again. All that was left to do was accept the nomination. He did this shortly after midnight on July 19, 1940, speaking before radio microphones and newsreel cameras in his shirtsleeves at the White House.

NBC maintained a meager television schedule during the war years. Other organizations, such as Dumont (an early TV network after the war), also tried to interest the President in televising events, such as his 1941 birthday ball. The telecast would come directly to the White House from a Washington, DC, hotel, enabling the President to see, not simply hear over radio, the festivities. His response was a terse “no.”

FDR’s aides resisted efforts by NBC to broadcast the President’s White House speeches in March 1945. We can speculate that it had as much to do with the President’s appearance and declining health as it did with fairness (see letter below). CBS and Dumont would most likely have found a way to make it work if given the chance. And radio, print, and newsreel pool coverage had worked during the war. FDR would die five weeks later.

But TV lived on, and after the war, television manufacturers and broadcast networks began a stunning technological and commercial advance that would make TV the dominant medium in the United States within a decade. Willkie may have been more suited for television in 1940, but FDR did just fine by radio. After all, he won a third term.

Developments from autumn 1941 to spring 1942

In the year following the collapse of France in June 1940, British strategists, relying as they could on supplies from the nonbelligerent United States, were concerned first with home defense, second with the security of the British positions in the Middle East, and third with the development of a war of attrition against the Axis powers, pending the buildup of adequate forces for an invasion of the European continent. For the United States, President Roosevelt’s advisers, from November 1940, based their strategic plans on the “Europe first” principle that is to say, if the United States became engaged in war simultaneously against Germany, Italy, and Japan, merely defensive operations should be conducted in the Pacific (to protect at least the Alaska–Hawaii–Panama triangle) while an offensive was being mounted in Europe.

Japan’s entry into the war terminated the nonbelligerency of the United States. The three weeks’ conference, named Arcadia, that Roosevelt, Churchill, and their advisers opened in Washington, D.C., on December 22, 1941, reassured the British about U.S. maintenance of the “Europe first” principle and also produced two plans: a tentative one, code-named “ Sledgehammer,” for the buildup of an offensive force in Great Britain, in case it should be decided to invade France and another, code-named “ Super-Gymnast,” for combining a British landing behind the German forces in Libya (already planned under the code name “Gymnast”) with a U.S. landing near Casablanca on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. The same conference furthermore created the machinery of the Combined Chiefs of Staff, where the British Chiefs of Staff Committee was to be linked continuously, through delegates in Washington, D.C., with the newly established U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Organization, so that all aspects of the war could be studied in concert. It was on January 1, 1942, during the Arcadia Conference, that the Declaration of the United Nations was signed in Washington, D.C., as a collective statement of the Allies’ war aims in sequel to the Atlantic Charter.

Meanwhile, Churchill became anxious to do something to help the embattled Soviets—who were clamouring for the United States and Britain to invade continental Europe so as to take some of the German pressure off the Eastern Front. Roosevelt was no less conscious than Churchill of the fact that the Soviet Union was bearing by far the greatest burden of the war against Germany and this consideration inclined him to listen to the arguments of his Joint Chiefs of Staff Organization for a change of plan. After some hesitation, he sent his confidant Harry Hopkins and his army chief of staff General George C. Marshall to London in April 1942 to suggest the scrapping of “Super-Gymnast” in favour of “ Bolero,” namely the concentration of forces in Great Britain for a landing in Europe (perhaps at Brest or at Cherbourg) in the autumn then “ Roundup,” an invasion of France by 30 U.S. and 18 British divisions, could follow in April 1943. The British agreed but soon began to doubt the practicability of mounting an amphibious invasion of France at such an early date.

Attempts to conclude an Anglo-Soviet political agreement were renewed without result, but a 20-year Anglo-Soviet alliance was signed on May 26, 1942 and, though Churchill warned the Soviet foreign minister, Vyacheslav Mikhaylovich Molotov, not to expect an early second front in Europe, Molotov seemed gratified by what he was told about Anglo-U.S. plans.

Visiting Roosevelt again in the latter part of June 1942, Churchill at Hyde Park, New York, and in Washington, D.C., pressed for a revised and enlarged joint operation in North Africa before the end of the year, instead of a buildup for the invasion of France but the U.S. Joint Chiefs resolutely upheld the latter plan. After further debate and disagreement, in July the U.S. Joint Chiefs yielded at last to British obstinacy in favour of a North African enterprise: it was decided that “ Torch,” as this combined Anglo-U.S. operation came to be called, should begin the following autumn.

Already, on July 17, 1942, Churchill had had to notify Stalin that convoys of Allied supplies to northern Russia must be suspended because of German submarine activity on the Arctic sea route (on June 2 a convoy from Iceland had lost 23 out of 34 vessels). Consequently, it was the more awkward to inform Stalin that there would be no second front in Europe before 1943. In mid-August 1942, when Churchill went to Moscow to break the news, Stalin raged against the retreat from the plan for a second front in Europe but had to admit the military logic of “Torch.”


Migratory Bird Treaty Act

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act is a Federal law that carries out the United States’ commitment to four international conventions with Canada, Japan, Mexico and Russia. Those conventions protect birds that migrate across international borders.

The take of all migratory birds, including bald eagles, is governed by the Migratory Birds Treaty Act’s regulations. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) prohibits the taking, killing, possession, transportation, and importation of migratory birds, their eggs, parts, and nests except as authorized under a valid permit (50 CFR 21.11). Additionally, the MBTA authorizes and directs the Secretary of the Interior to determine if, and by what means, the take of migratory birds should be allowed and to adopt suitable regulations permitting and governing take (for example, hunting seasons for ducks and geese).

Penalties under the MBTA include a maximum of two years imprisonment and $250,000 fine for a felony conviction and six months imprisonment or $5,000 fine for a misdemeanor conviction. Fines double if the violator is an organization rather than an individual.

The MBTA and its implementing regulations provide authority for the conservation of bald eagles and protect against take if the Endangered Species Act protections are removed.

Penalties associated with violating the Migratory Bird Treaty Act

Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, take alone is a misdemeanor violation with maximum penalty of six months in prison and $15,000 fine, and commercialization is a felony violation with a maximum penalty of two years imprisonment and $250,000 fine ($500,000 for an organization).
