Happy 125th Birthday, Amelia Earhart!

July is Amelia Earhart’s month, and today, if she had successfully completed her 1937 world flight and gone on to become a medical miracle for the ages, Amelia Mary Earhart, born in Atchison, Kansas on July 24, 1897, to Amy Otis and Edwin Stanton Earhart, would be celebrating her 125th birthday.  

For the few who honor Amelia’s enduring legacy, today is another milestone, an opportunity to pause, reflect and renew our determination to never cease reminding our truth-averse establishment that its 85-year-old lies and denials about Amelia’s untimely passing on Saipan are not believed by everyone.  Not by a longshot. 

In Boston in late June 1932, Amelia and her mother, Amy Otis Earhart, enjoy the acclaim that her May 23, 1932 solo Atlantic crossing bestowed, when she became the first woman and second person to accomplish the feat, at a reception attended by the mayor and other luminaries.  In the background, not easily seen, is Amelia’s Lockheed Vega, in which she overflew the Atlantic, landing in a field in Londonderry, Ireland.

This has been an uneventful year in Earhartland; little if any noise has been heard from the usual suspects, whose names are unnecessary here.  Everyone knows who they are, and I suppose we can count our blessings that these vermin have temporarily run out of new scams to run on us.  I have little doubt, however, that most will return sooner or later with fresh lies and renewed encouragement from their rotten media accomplices. 

On Saipan, long-suffering Marie Castro, 89, and the Amelia Earhart Saipan Memorial Monument Inc. (AESMMI), the small group she created in 2017, continue their futile efforts in a political environment so virulently hostile to an Earhart Monument that even the usually optimistic Marie recently described as “hopeless.”

AESMMI and guests gather to celebrate Amelia Earhart’s 125th Birthday.  Front row: Vice President Frances Sablan, President Marie Castro, Mary and Dany Martinez.  Second row: Ted and Sophia Perez, Edith Guerrero, Irene Cleven, Stanley Torres McGinnis, Betty and Sylvia Frain, Remi Sablan, Allen Castro.  Third row: Manny Borja.  Fourth row: Robert Romolor, Del Benson, unidentified and Richard Warber and son, Brad Cleven, Carlos Torres and Mathew Igisaiar.  Not shown: Ed Williams and Glenn Mangloña.  Thanks to AESMMI Vice President Frances Sablan.

It is long past the time to recognize and acknowledge the significant history of Amelia Earhart, who died here on Saipan, Marie wrote in a recent email.  Yesterday, Marie and the AESMMI celebrated Amelia’s 125th at the American Memorial Park Visitor Center, where the group was treated to a slide-show presentation that included rare Earhart photos compiled by American collector and AESMMI member Jeremy Palermo, enjoyed the traditional birthday cake and welcomed some special guests, as Marie explained:

Today, a few of the families of the deceased Saipan eyewitnesses in 1937 join us in celebrating Amelia’s 125th Birthday:  Josephine Blanco, Matilde F. Arriola, Joaquina M. Cabrera, Jose Sadao Tomokane, Manuel Aldan, Jesus Salas, Antonio M. Cepeda, Pedro Sakisat, Carlos Palacios, Jesus Boyer, Gregorio Camacho, Francisco Diaz, Francisco Tudela and more.

Marie Castro narrates a photo presentation for AESMMI members and guests at the American Memorial Park Visitor Center auditorium on July 23.  Note the sparse attendance, directly reflective of the lack of interest in Amelia Earhart throughout Saipan.

Despite the overwhelming resistance to building an Earhart Memorial Monument on Saipan, Marie refuses to surrender, and she’s renewed her dedication with a brand-new mission statement for the AESMMI, which she titled Courage With Determination:


The AESMMI is determined to fight the challenge to have a Memorial Monument for Amelia Earhart, who changed the role of women worldwide.  Amelia was a unique woman who overcame numerous seemingly insurmountable obstacles — a woman of character who prevails in our hearts and minds as one of the greatest models of all times. 

A Memorial Monument of Amelia Earhart on Saipan will serve as a model of Courage and strong Determination to rise above any challenge — a constant reminder for all of us to strive for successful outcomes in our own lives. 

Ed Williams and Marie Castro pause in front of the American Memorial Park Visitor Center during the AEMMI’s Amelia Earhart Birthday commemoration there July 23.  “I brought two guests and around 20 people showed,” Williams told me in an email.  Marie gave a good talk and had some videos.  Would have been nice to have more guests, but the people [who were there] were very interested.

In Atchison, where the truth is treated like an actual pandemic, the Covid-terrorized citizenry cancelled their trademark Amelia Earhart Festival once again in 2021 for the second straight year in cowering fealty to the demonic Dr. Anthony Fauci, the CDC and their damnable Covid lies.  The festival returned in 2022 on the traditional third weekend in July, but nothing significant has ever happened in Atchison besides Amelia’s birthday, and some there believe Amelia is still floating around in the ether somewhere, searching for Howland Island, lost forever. 

This yearly festival on the third weekend of July celebrates Amelia Earhart and her accomplishments with a weekend full of family entertainment for Atchison residents and visitors, the Visit Atchison website tells us.  The 1st Annual Amelia Earhart Festival was held in 1997 to celebrate the 100th birthday of Amelia Earhart.

For a look at recent Earhart birthdays at the Truth at Last blog, please see “July 24, 2012: Happy Birthday, Amelia”; July 23, 2014, For Amelia Earhart, another unhappy birthday;” “July 24, 2017: Happy Birthday, Amelia;July 24, 2019,For Amelia Earhart, it’s Happy Birthday No. 122!” and July 24, 2021, Castro, AEMMI celebrate Earhart’s 124th birthday.

UPDATE: Earlier today, July 27, PBS covered the unveiling of a statute of Amelia Earhart in the U.S. Capitol.  In a disgusting display of hypocrisy unequaled in recent memory, fake Catholic Nancy Pelosi leads off a lineup of sellouts, commies, RINOS and career criminals who have never been worthy to empty Amelia Earhart’s garbage on their best days.  If you really want to see thisplease click here.

  1. I am in Saipan a short walk from the Memorial Park and would love to have attended the July 23 talk. I’ve purchased several of her booklets and give them to friends. Unfortunately there wasn’t any advertising of the talk that I’m aware of.


  2. First to Amelia, Thinking of you on your birthday. You are loved and your loyal fans will keep the vigil ever working to get the truth. Second, I love what you had to say here: “in cowering fealty to the demonic Dr. Anthony Fauci, the CDC and their Covid lies.” You may find it interesting that the name fauci means, Sickle, like the sickle carried by the angel of death, in the italian language. and third: any chance there are any female descendants of Amelia’s friend, Eleanor Roosevelt? Someone out there has the power to get these hidden files de-classified. We just haven’t figured out who that is yet. And the person may not know we’re looking for them. Just thought. What are the possibilities that someone in the Roosevelt line-a female-could expedite “operation Earhart Declassify?” Eleanor and Amelia were great friends, maybe someone has influence somewhere. Long shot, I know.


  3. Thank you very much! I was Amelia Earhart, in my past life. Il 20 luglio 1967 mi sono reincarnata come Emma Erlicher. Scusate, ma conosco poco l’inglese. Grazie ancora per il vostro interessamento :):):)


  4. … sono nata in Trentino, Italy 🙂


  5. Bravo Mike, for recognizing her achievements and keeping up the good fight to finally bring to light the truth about her and Fred’s tragic endings. And, most importantly, recognizing her bravery and achievements, not only on her birthday, but your continued efforts on her behalf. If there truly is any justice, they will some day pay off.

    Greetings to All:

    As long as Japan remains a vitally important strategic ally of the United States, the US Government will keep Japan’s responsibility for AE and FN’s deaths a closely guarded secret. To do otherwise would not be macht politik, given the current, highly charged situation vis-a-vis Communist China’s designs on Taiwan, as well as the greater on-going overall struggle between the US and Communist China for dominance in the Pacific.

    All best,



    1. The Japanese were not particularly good cold war allies but they were allowed every advantage in international trade nontheless. Now that the geopolitical winds have shifted they are suddenly more than cooperative. They actually offered to pay the full cost to upgrade the avionics of the F-22 to F-35 capability if the USAF would restart F-22 production. (The USAF declined).


  7. Hello Mike,
    TIGHAR is the one that decided that 157-337 is a sun line, it has special significance because of the position of the sun that morning 67° true. The question is 67° true is 11° north of Howland and a 67° magnetic (76.54° true) is 1.5° or 80 miles north of Howland. How did TIGHAR choose which 67° the famous 157-337 LOP was based on without researching the 67° magnetic?

    The true course from Lae to Howland is 78°, the distance is 2556-mile or 2221-nautical miles with a 9.49 degree east magnetic declination near Howland.

    Formula: sin(inverse)(517÷distance)

    2556, sin=11.67, 90-11.67= 78.33° true course, 78-9.49= 68.5° magnetic near Howland.

    2221, sin=13.46, 90-13.46= 76.54° true course, 76.54-9.49= 67.05° magnetic near Howland!

    Question, is it possible that they where given the wrong directions? Is it possible they flew 2556-miles on a 76.54° true course then turned right 90° onto 157-337?

    One more question, did you catch the math error?


  8. The math error is.

    517 represents the vertical distance between Lae and Howland in miles. In order to use 2221-nautical to calculate the true course we would have to change the 517 miles to 449.2 nautical-miles.

    Clarence Williams created the map strips for their flights he also located Howland in the wrong location on previous maps.


  9. I do apologize if I offended anyone on this blog. I read some of the articles but didn’t read the position statement. I thought this was a neutral site that chose no sides.

    I apologize again.


    1. Tom,

      Once one knows the facts in the Earhart disappearance, one then knows the basic truth. It is then impossible to be neutral about what happened to Amelia and Fred Noonan after they were taken to Saipan.

      Your apology is accepted, thanks for your decency in admitting your error.


  10. Mike,

    KUDOS to you for an excellent article and tribute to one of history’s great women, and to our precious Marie Castro who carries the Saipan Memorial Flag with dignity.

    I count both of you as dear friends.

    When the history-timeline is narrowed down to the lives, dedication, courage, and achievements of two brave and talented people, Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan, then we must add to that historic True Story 2 additional names who have embodied the same courage and determination in keeping alive the Truth about a valued legacy.

    Remove the names of Mike Campbell & Marie Castro, who represent a host of other participants. and what do we then have? An empty myth and vapor of misunderstanding, misrepresentation, and deliberate deception intent on adding poison to the well of lies about things which never happened, and denials of things which did.

    Because of this cloud of witnesses and believers, history now has a record of Truth against which there is no weapon of destruction. Untruth may be “official,” but only for a time, because it has a shelf-life which eventually comes to an end.

    And thank you, Dave Kapsiak and William Trail, for comments worth remembering.

    Grateful for such good company,

    Capt. Calvin Pitts,
    ’81 RTW flight


    1. Calvin,

      You are far too kind, and we’re always honored when you visit here. You also honor Amelia’s memory on this special day of her birth.

      God Bless you and Wanda,

    We have yet another government administration supposedly supportive of feminism who cannot bring themselves to admit that a brave woman flew virtually around the world in 1937, and landed her plane in the Marshall Islands after what must have been the most harrowing civilian flight ever flown.

    How refreshing it is to read this post, knowing that you are 100% correct about AE facts but also have the righteous courage to speak the absolute truth about the planned-scamdemic c19 hoax.

  13. If you look closely the ghost of AE can be seen in the 4th row at the group photo of SMMI in this newsletter.
