Although the Civil Flag is still a fringe item, no pun intended; it's impact as a symbol has far out-weighed the number of flags in actual use. The Civil Flag image is starting to embed itself within the patriot community and the culture at large. I have a skateboard hanging on my wall courtesy of worship skateboards. I have seen the U.S. Civil flag at Ron Paul rallies in Washington, at the Ron Paul conference in St. Paul Minnesota last summer. I no longer get any hate mail, there were 4 or 5 early on, mostly I guess from rabid George Bush supporters.
The Civil flag was used in a T.V. series called Jericho, which is about a post apocalyptic America which has been devastated by a series of Nuclear attacks. The flag shows up at the start of season 2 and is used by an evil American faction attempting to take-over the remnants of the country. The show mysteriously went off the air a few weeks later abruptly, maybe there is some help from above. Although I do agree at times the best press is any press, like with the recent MIAC report that says;" The report concludes the Gadsden Flag, US Civil Flag, an upside down US flag, Sons of Liberty Flag and/or the US Naval Jack are symbols used by potential terrorists". Alex Jones also gave me some air play when he mentioned the MIAC report and that the Civil Flag was an image used by potential domestic terrorists on his show.
There was an immediate upswing of protest by patriots around the country and the report was retracted and that was the end of that attempt for now to manufacture scapegoats for the state and Federal government to seize more power. Colonel Donn de Grand Pre, the author of Barbarians inside the Gates and a former member of the Joints Chiefs of staff, told me two years ago that the troops were going to be brought back home to defend the borders against the invading Mexican gangs and take down Blackwater. He also told me there would be no war in Iran, that FEMA is not the military, that the military would stop and neutralize FEMA and any UN troops. Colonel Donn de Grand Pre, died in January, he is survived by his wife and daughter.
In the 2009 Liberty bowl the correct version of the Sons of Liberty flag is painted in the end zone. This image is based on the vertical striped "Rebellious striped flag", flown during the stamp act and possibly the Boston Tea Party. On the web the idea that the Sons of Liberty flag is a vertical striped flag only is obfuscated. If you type in a google search, on the front page they have 4 different versions of the Sons of Liberty flag. If you click the top link you get a commercial website selling a horizontal version of the Sons of Liberty flag with the text from below.
This was the flag of the early colonist who had joined together in the protest against the British impositions on American economic freedom. One such protest was resistance to the Stamp Act, on October 7, 1765. A delegate from each of the nine colonies formed the "Stamp Act Congress" . They petitioned the king and parliament, the act was repealed on March 18, 1766. The flag of nine red and white stripes that represented these "Sons of Liberty" became known as the "Rebellious Stripes." On December 16, 1773, the Sons of Liberty protested the parliament's Tea Act, an action that became known as the Boston Tea Party. The colonists' believed the tax to be a violation of their legitimate economic liberty. Three and a half years after the Tea Party the thirteen colonies had come together in their decision to fight for independence and the nine stripes had grown to thirteen. The Sons of Liberty would rally under a large tree which became known as "The Liberty Tree".
The description above is correct, but the flag is wrong all wrong. There never was a horizontal Sons of Liberty flag,at-least none that were associated with the stamp act. The facts are that there is a real legal difference between the vertical striped flag and a horizontal one. This does not mean you can go running into a court and ask them to remove the flag and replace it will a Sovereign flag. That will not change the nature of the court, that is a cosmetic change. What the symbols do tell you is who is in control and what the rules of the game are. If you are in a court of Admiralty and you argue the Constitution, you have already lost before you have started. It is the lack of correct knowledge that prevents someone from making the right choices and leaves one in a state of fear, because one is confused and does not know whether to turn right or left. The brain only operates with yes or no commands, it does not know I don't know that is read as a no or worse, it goes crazy trying to find a solution that does not exist, wasting energy and creating stress for the individual. The true power of those that control the system is in the power of their propaganda. It is the people themselves that comply with the directives of the very people that are working against them. The U.S. Civil Flag as a symbol breaks the grip of the Wizard of OZ. You are forced to make a decision in your mind when you see a competing image. There is a question that is posed sub-conciously to the meaning of the image. The Vertical striped reverse American flag image by itself can wake people up! That is why I got into the marketing of the Civil flag, I understand the power of the symbol to wake up America. You never need to like or accept the meaning of the Civil flag, it is enough for people to know that there is a second choice to the blind obedience to leaders that are in opposition to the true Spirit of the principals of the Founders.
