American Citizens Flying Obama Flag

April 16, 2012 by  

American Citizens Flying Obama Flag
ULTIMATEFLAGS.COM
The Obama flag is available for $24.95.

It is common this time of year for the citizens of South Jersey to fly flags from their balconies, but one man’s flag is being ridiculed by his neighbors.

The flag looks just like an American flag, but the stars have been replaced with a picture of President Barack Obama’s face.

The man’s neighbors are objecting to the flag.

“I fought for that flag. I just don’t want the face,” said one neighbor.

“I don’t care if it’s a can of peas, it don’t belong on my American flag,” said another.

“I wanted to support the president of the United States,” answered Richard Clarkson, the man who purchased the flag.

The question is whether the flag is a defamation of the American flag, or the expression of a citizen’s right to support the President.

In March, there was an argument when veteran Jim Bradford noticed that the Lake County Democratic Party in Florida was flying the flag.

The flag is for sale here.

US Code Title 4 Chapter 1 pertains to the flag.

The latter part of section 3 defines a “flag” as that which is:

of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America.

Section 1 states:

The flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; and the union of the flag shall be forty-eight stars [Note: Section 2 provides for additional stars], white in a blue field.

Section 3 states:

Any person who, within the District of Columbia, in any manner, for exhibition or display, shall place or cause to be placed any word, figure, mark, picture, design, drawing, or any advertisement of any nature upon any flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America; or shall expose or cause to be exposed to public view any such flag, standard, colors, or ensign upon which shall have been printed, painted, or otherwise placed, or to which shall be attached, appended, affixed, or annexed any word, figure, mark, picture, design, or drawing, or any advertisement of any nature; or who, within the District of Columbia, shall manufacture, sell, expose for sale, or to public view, or give away or have in possession for sale, or to be given away or for use for any purpose, any article or substance being an article of merchandise, or a receptacle for merchandise or article or thing for carrying or transporting merchandise, upon which shall have been printed, painted, attached, or otherwise placed a representation of any such flag, standard, colors, or ensign, to advertise, call attention to, decorate, mark, or distinguish the article or substance on which so placed shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine not exceeding $100 or by imprisonment for not more than thirty days, or both, in the discretion of the court.

    I find that flag very offensive.

    • LAB

      So do I !!! Surprised there is no hammer and sycle!! They should be arrested promptly and fined/jailed…LOSERS!

    • cawmun cents

      So FF,you find it offensive that a citizen gives Obama the same credence as the fifty states?You see it as offensive that they believe in him enough to hand absolute power over to him by putting his face on the flag instead of the fifty states which the flag represents?
      Why what would then happen when he died,and a new face had to be put on the flag?
      Who’s face would then be on the flag?
      Some young guy named Kim?Vlad perhaps?
      Who can tell?
      Perhaps a crescent moon and a star?
      I find it ironic,and offensive.
      Isnt this same person running for political office?
      Doesnt he already have political office?
      I suppose folks can fly whatever flag they wish to fly here in America.
      But then again…..I have the right to be offended,and the right to speak out about it.
      Just like that person has the right to fly his flag.
      Would I ask him to take down his flag?
      Nope.
      But if I fly one he finds offensive,maybe he should just learn to be offended and not enact laws designed to keep me from flying my flag?
      That would be hateful wouldnt it?
      Cheers!

        LAB, that was 58 states. Obama claimed he had visted 57 and had one more to go.

        See http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/57states.asp

      • Wyatt

        Not only do I find it offensive , but I believe it might also be illegal . And if it isn’t it should be . It is a clear breech of flag edicate and total disrespect to the Flag of the United States . If this guy wants to have a dictator , then perhaps he should move to China , Cuba , Venazuela or one of those nations ruled by one . Personally I will ever continue to oppose the Communist Policies Obama is trying to impose upon our nation and people . Just in case he didn’t get the memo ; ” Hey Barry , Communism collapsed , it doesn’t work. It was in all the papers .” That’s assuming you can read , Ass !

      • Vigilant

        Wyatt says, “Not only do I find it offensive , but I believe it might also be illegal.”

        There’s no doubt that it’s offensive to well meaning Americans. If it is illegal in the state of New Jersey, or in local ordiinances and covenants, I would hope that they prosecute it to the full extent of the law.

      • JocasseeJO

        Sorry Cawmun – no we don’t have to accept this. Yes it is offensive, but if I understand correctly, it is also illegal to fly a defaced flag such as his. There are specific rules & laws concerning the flag.

        • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

          Yip, and if any of those idiots want to learn if they can read just go down to your nearest Boy Scout or Girl Scout Headquarters, VFW, Ameriecan Leagion, or even Google it (Flag ediquite(?)).

    • Bruce

      if the flag has Obomas face on it, it represents the nation.
      The Obomination being formed right now, that is.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      The flag with the face of O is offensive.
      Freedom of Speech means Freedom to Offend.
      The Leftists will use this freedom and they will offend, deliberately. So let us brace ourselves for an aweful onslought. They think they are right and we are wrong.
      “Freedom of speech means the freedom to to say with words, spoken or written, anything one chooses to say. It is not frredom to say only what offends no one, it is not freedom to say only what agrees with some authority’s official line; it means feedom to say anything, even if everyone else in the whole world is offended by it and even it contradicts every official doctrine of every authority that ever existed”. This is from : the autonomist.com of 12/30/2009, author Reginald Firehammer

      • Vigilant

        Nadzieja, you have hit upon it.

        In a famous scene from Bolton’s “A Man for all Seasons,” Sir Thomas More excoriates his future son-in-law Will Roper for saying that he would cut down all the laws in England to get at the Devil. More says something to the effect that “And what would you do then, when the Devil turns on you and all the laws are flat? Would you be able to survive in the winds that would blow then? No, I would give even the Devil the benefit of law for my own safety’s sake.”

        The point, I think, is that respect for the rule of law is absolutely critical to the vitality of our Constitutional Republic. As distasteful as it may be at times, we must respect the First Amendment’s protection of rude and disgusting speech.

        Unless and until we act to change the laws to criminalize this Obama flag disgrace, we are bound by the law. To illegally snatch that flag from its place is to engage in the same sort of law-skirting behavior for which we take the leftist and activist Obama administraton to task.

      • Dennis48e

        The guy flying this flag would most likely go ballistic if his neighbors flew a Gadsden flag or the Confederate flag.

    • Victoria

      It is totally illegal! It must come down and the companies who are manufacturing it should be fined for defamation of our beloved flag.

      • http://www.mototcarsfinancial.com Brad

        If I remeber right Victoria the flag with the king’s face is made in China

    • Andy

      I think I know what that is around his mouth; looks like they coulda cleaned him up before taking the picture! Just to reiterate a profound statement one must make in a situation like this: “We’re in deep do-do!”.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      So do I! If that joker whats to fly a flag with someones mug on it he can move to China, Korea, Russia, or any other Socialist/Communist county. I served for over 30 years defending that Flag (THE PROPER ONE: THE ONE WITH 13 STRIPS AND A BLUE FIELD WITH 50 STARS) not that abomination.

      Oh, so if that individual wants to protray his god let him put up a picture. In other words “Don’t Tread on Me!”

  • Vigilant

    A few points need to be clarified.

    (1) The object, offensive as it is, is not a US flag. Mr. Nash himself alludes to US Code Title 4 Chapter 1 sections 1 and 3 definitions which confirms my point.

    (2) The website upon which the flag is sold says “For those who are concerned, this flag is not a violation of US Flag Code or any other law as this is an artistic design based on the US flag, not an actual US flag. We did not take a US flag and change it. Legally this is art.” They are correct.

    (3) The flag code is not legally binding.

    (4) Mr. Nash, you need to get a map of the United States. Lumberton. New Jersey is not within the District of Columbia. Your long and unnecessary quote of section 3 has no relevance.

    • UnrepentantCurmudgeon

      @Vigilant: Only your last point (New Jersey is not in Washington DC) is correct. Let us know who your grade-school geography teacher was and we will send a thank-you note. As for the rest:

      The Chinese agents distributing it may say it is not a flag, but it is certainly produced to look like one. It has the stripes and the blue field. The Code proscripes depicting “the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America”. That is certainly the case here, the pusillanimous disclaimers by those distributing this obscenity notwithstanding (it does not matter that they did not “change” an actual flag; they have produced something intended to appear as the flag; that is all that matters).

      The Code is legally binding (if you don’t understand that, look up the definition of “Code”). The display is prohibited. What the Code does not do, other than in DC, is provide a criminal or civil sanction.

      This “flag” is in violation of the flag code and is a desecration. No President in history has had the gall to permit such a thing, and if Obama had even the barest respect for the office he would tell this company to stop producing this thing and tell those buying it to burn them. But Obama represents the ascendancy of hubris over honor and it would never occur to him that there is anything wrong with this. Which is, at bottom, what is wrong with Obama.

      • Vigilant

        “The Code is legally binding (if you don’t understand that, look up the definition of “Code”). The display is prohibited. What the Code does not do, other than in DC, is provide a criminal or civil sanction.”

        Sorry to diabuse you of your fantasy. See http://www.steve4u.com/flagcode.htm

        “This code is the guide for all handling and display of the Stars and Stripes. It does not impose penalties for misuse of the United States Flag. That is left to the states and to the federal government for the District of Columbia. Each state has its own flag law.

        “Criminal penalties for certain acts of desecration to the flag were contained in Title 18 of the United States Code prior to 1989. The Supreme Court decision in Texas v. Johnson; June 21, 1989, held the statute unconstitutional. This statute was amended when the Flag Protection Act of 1989 (Oct. 28, 1989) imposed a fine and/or up to I year in prison for knowingly mutilating, defacing, physically defiling, maintaining on the floor or trampling upon any flag of the United States. The Flag Protection Act of 1989 was struck down by the Supreme Court decision, United States vs. Eichman, decided on June 11, 1990.

        “While the Code empowers the President of the United States to alter, modify, repeal or prescribe additional rules regarding the Flag, no federal agency has the authority to issue ‘official’ rulings legally binding on civilians or civilian groups. Consequently, different interpretations of various provisions of the Code may continue to be made. The Flag Code may be fairly tested: ‘No disrespect should be shown to the Flag of the United States of America.’ Therefore, actions not specifically included in the Code may be deemed acceptable as long as proper respect is shown.”

      • Vigilant

        Correction: “disabuse” was the word I misspelled.

        The Flag Code does not apply to the Obama flag because it is NOT a US flag.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        Your response to Vigilant is emotional and lacks thinking through.
        Consider that before the banner was ever put to cloth and still remained on drawing paper the legal codes concerning the Flag were studied.
        The banner means nothing but your response gave it meaning.

      • Mary Ann Ludwig

        If it looks like a duck… Application of the “Duck Test” is all you need. This is meant to be a representation of the flag and is flown as if it were the flag. That’s all you need to know that it is a desecration of the U.S. flag. You might be able to burn one legally, but you can’t just put some idiot’s face on it and call that “art”.

    • bsg

      The question is whether the flag is a defamation of the American flag…..Well the face is a defamation of the presidency so it all works out. Those things are being produced in China and its important to keep the Chinese economy going so they can keep the American economy afloat.

      • Vigilant

        Ironically, when Fox News reported on this type of case over a month ago, the website price was $12.95. Now it has almost doubled.

        The more publicity you give this type of disgusting action, the more popular you are making it with the leftist idiots.

  • WE

    This depiction is just plain stupid.
    What it says to me is he ‘is’ America.
    Whatever happened to ‘we the people?’
    The Stars are representative of 50 indivisible states and people therein.
    What a message that sends to voters.

    • Vigilant

      “Vigilant are you really Nobama hisself? Must be or its Moochelle! It depicts OUR FLAG and is totally OFFENSIVE to REAL AMERICANS~! Libtards! Gotta deport em!”

      (1) My points were a legal clarification of the subject, and are completely sound. Do a little research on the subject before you take me to task on the legality of the points covered. A whole body of case law supports my position.

      (2) I find the action as offensive as the next person. I personally fly both the US and Gadsden flags from my house, so don’t mischaracterize me as a liberal. And I hold a firm belief that Obama is the most dangerous president in our history as a nation.

      (3) I served 24 years in the Air Force to help preserve the freedoms we enjoy, among which are freedom of speech. The flying of that Obama flag is distasteful, to be sure, but until the laws are changed, he has every right to do so.

      • momo

        Vigilant, you’re right, but it is still offensive and in bad taste!

      • LAB

        MEA CULPA! It seems I totally misunderstood!! I am wrong! THANK YOU FOR YOUR DEDICATION AND SERVICE!

      • Vigilant

        momo, I agree wholeheartedly. It is also a shameful advertisement for the personality cult of Obama. Reminds me of the Kim Il Song signs everywhere I saw on N.Korean TV when I was stationed in ROK. When we start putting images of living people on flags and currency, we will have degraded to the very thing the Founders tried to avert.

        LAB, thanks for your kind comments. What we need to do is change either local/state laws and ordinances to make such a thing illegal, or we pass a Constitutional Amendment specifying such. Until either of those things happen, we must grit our teeth and bear it.

        It’s a sad commentary on the leftist programming of students that they no longer, by and large, respect the US Flag.

  • Dad

    It is a defamation of the flag and a total disrespect of the country… whom Barry and Michele do not like.

  • P H

    I find it very offensive. But, what else can you expect from someone with Hitler aspirations. This is just one more step and more evidence in that direction. America, wake up. We are in deep trouble.

  • eddie47d

    I don’t agree with the flag but since it is not an actual American flag it comes down to being a souvenir flag. I wouldn’t like it if it had Bush or Reagan on it or even Clinton. Another thing will it be considered Freedom of Speech or Freedom of expression.Politics brings our Freedoms to the forefront and alot of hoopla to go along with it. Are any of you offended when the neo-Nazi’s parade their flags around even when they were our mortal enemy? How about the terrorist Klan groups who uses a variety of Christian flags to anchor their causes of hate?

    • UnrepentantCurmudgeon

      What do groups (however hateful) marching under their own flags (however hateful) have to do with this issue? This is the Cult of Obama in full cry. Please tell me which former President ever was associated with anything like this? I’ll save your gray cells from cramping: none of them. And if Obama had any class he would ask “supporters” such as these to cease and desist such obnoxious displays. But he doesn’t, and he won’t.

      Let’s see how sincere Samurai is. There are two neo-Nazi groups in Indiana one in Wakarusa and the other in Warsaw( White Aryan Resistance).Plus a similar group in Carmel and Knightstown. Also 7 Klan organizations within your state so are you offended by them and will you kick their arses? Is the American flag being trashed when they fly them at their rallies? Do you have a penchant for selective hatred or only when it is convenient?

        eddie47d, ! don’t object to those idiot racist groups flying Old Glory at their rallies (which I don’t attend) because I spent most of my adult life (30+ yrs in the Military) defending their rights, However, I have never seen one of those groups fly the US Flag with the picture of Hitler superimposed on the blue field. So, I’m with the others that will ask the person that is flying one to take the adomination down and destroy it.

        I respect the Office of the Presidency, but I don’t respect the current office holder, just like I didn’t respect the Clintons or Carters when they occupied the office.

  • teaparty13

    I’m flying the Bennington Flag, and will be until we get rid of the pinko’s in Congress & the socialsit-muslim in the WH. Maybe his neighbors should get American Flags and fly them or better yet, “Don’t Tread On Me” flags…

  • Joe

    I don’t care what you “clubhouse lawyers” say; that is an American Flag defaced by an individual’s face in lieu of stars in the field of blue. What’s next? In stead of holding our hands over our hearts, we perform a straight-armed salute? Wouldn’t surprise me; BHO has already been quoted as saying he is going to enjoy acting like a dictator during his second term, issuing Executive fiat one after another, Constitution, Congress and SCOTUS be damned. That is an affront to the hundreds of millions of patriotic Americans. We aew a nation of law, not of men; that is why such a defacement is so nauseating.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Joe, its an abomination and you will probably guess where that piece of s— was made. Thats right in The People Republic of China. I’m among those that will ask any person that is flying one to take it down and destroy it. Oh, I will also inform them why and then hand them a copy of the Flag ediquete (?), which you can get at you locale VFW, American League, or even the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts. Alas, I don’t think the idiots even know how to read much above the 3rd grade level.

  • Doc Sarvis

    I couldn’t consider this an American flag. Images similar to the American flag are used all the time in cartoons, bumper stickers, etc. where it is modified with other graphics for whatever purpose (left, right, or other). I don’t like the practice but it grabs some people’s attention which is the intent.

    I seem to remember growing up that the REAL American flag should not be used as an article of clothing but it is not unusual to see that on many people.

    • DavidL

      Go ahead and burn the flag that is also your American right! The Nazi flag is far more detestable and a true symbol of a dark period in history yet it is allowed in parades and in peoples homes. You may rightfully get upset over this “Obama” flag but some of you have a strange attitude of what is right and what is very wrong. Those flying this flag are making themselves an easy target and some of you want to kick ass. Now go attend a Neo-Nazi rally and do some real ass kicking.

    The fact that obammy remains silent on the flag issue, refusing to do anything about it, is a bold statement that he lacks integrity and continues to be an embarrassment to the people of the United States as well as a usurper of the US Constitution. His greatest desire is to be our last elected President and first dictator….and no doubt he will adopt this offensive trashing of our beloved flag as his ‘national flag.’ Like the korean dictators, every American home and business will be required to post a large picture of him within their premises or be subjected to imprisonment and torture.

    Regarding the idiotic comments made by cawcum cents (a childish play on the phrase “commen sense)” this fool doesn’t have the guts to leave a reply under his name. Let’s see how much you like it when and god forbid,Barack Hussein Obama is reelected and dummies like you hand him absolute power. Ever hear of a similiar guy by the name of Hitler? He was given absolute power and look what he did. How can you possible say putting his face on our flag gives him more credence that fifty states. You must be a neoNazi as well as an (expletive deleted). Obama’s goal is to eliminate not only our flag but our way of life and make the United States part of the Muslim world. You are just too stupid to realize that.

      Ron, I don’t think the guy is a Neonazi, I think the idiot is a socialist maskerading as a person. Oh, I also think the guy’s new religon is Obamaizm. I for one pray that the people of America wake up and toss the Bum out along with his wife, the traitorist. The reason I call her that is something that she did last year on Flag Day. While watching a celibration she leaned over and whispered “All this for a damned old rag.” or something like that. Oh, I believe its located on U-tube somewhere, that is if someone high up in Bummers administration hasn’t cencored it or tried.

    The stars on our USA Flag united us as a people, and not Obama’s face. Does anyone know that Bush and Obama are distant cousins, and both of them belong to the Illuminati. Yes, folks it is real. Also, Obama sold out our elections to a private company in Spain. This means we no longer monitor our elections. Also, Obama gave away seven islands that were apart of Alaska to Russia, and these islands are immensley rich in oil. Do I need to say more. One may further research the following: Reptilian Agenda, Shape Shifting, Agenda 21, and Laws Of The Seas.

    I’d like to see Obama’s picture on toilet paper. A fitting place to enshrine our Marxist leader. I would probably buy some, if the price was right.

    • Vigilant

      To repeat part of my posting yesterday, “I would prefer to have the image on each sheet of toilet paper I buy. Imagine being able to buy Boxer Bathroom Tissues, Waters Wipes, or Schumer Sheets. Nothing could be finer than cleaning your backside with a wad of Waxmans or a Reid Roll.

      And don’t say a word, liberals….you’ve been wiping yours with the Constitution for decades.

        Good post V. Toilet paper with Chucky Schemer’s puss on it, or Babs Boxer, who sponsored this latest criminal legislation to prevent Americans from traveling out of the country if they “owe” any extortion money to the IRS. Velcome to Amerika 2012.

    For accuracy, the company who placed Obama’s photo on the flag should also have included his right hand with the middle finger extended up. That’s what the photo really represents, doesn’t it?

  • JasperHeindenbinder

    It says right in the ad where they sell the flag that it is US Obama Face National Flag. Below that is says ” This is a US style Flag with President Barack Obama’s face on it.”

    It is deliberately and intentionally made to be a US flag with Obama’s face on it. It couldn’t be much clearer. It is offensive, tacky, and beautifully illustrative of how Obama supporters respect this nation and our flag. They don’t.

        Come on Doc! That is a silhouette of Ron Paul, superimposed over a partial picture of the U.S. flag in the backround. Not the same thing at all. Iv’e seen this with other presidents and also the famous Yankey Doodle Trio. Nothing at all like the “abomination flag” (correct spelling intended to exemplify the PUN). I still would exercise my right to be offended if I saw one of those “abomination flags”. Nor would I ever buy one, even if I just wanted to tromp on it or burn it. Now, if someone would give one to me, I would gleefully perform a public desecration of it.

    all of the comments on the flag being descrated are true and should be taken into consideration. He is definitly either a nazi of commy. I am a veteran and very much disturbed about this. I hope that the lazy voters that did not take time to evulate what a schmut he was and is and also the younger voters who listened to some of their misguieded lazy partent and voted for home. OMG has a new meaning. Obam Must Go.. He doesn’t even deserve to be in our country.

  • http://PersonalLiberty FEDUP

    As repulsive, un-American, and just downright stupid and offensive this flag is to WE the people, just wait until the American flag comes out with a picture of Moochelle on it. Rumor has it that it will be an image of an old cow looking to the East with her tail straight up in the air. oh and the picture will be taken from directly behind revealing the true Mooochelle.

    The last few weeks have been disastrous ones for the Obama re-election effort. The evidence for this is in several areas, including public opinion surveys. The Rasmussen daily tracking survey, one of the very few to use a likely voter screen at this point in the cycle, now has Mitt Romney leading Obama by five points. A new Fox survey of registered voters has Obama with his lowest approval number to date at 42%, trailing
    Romney head-to-head by 2%.

    On the issue front, the Obama team has suffered many severe blows. It turns out that several members of the Supreme Court, maybe even a majority, think the issue of the constitutionality of the individual mandate in Obama-Care is a serious one. The liberal commentariat from Jeffrey Toobin to Linda Greenhouse, caught in their tight cocoon that ignores alternative views, had assured themselves before the Court took up the matter that the constitutionality of the mandate was a trivial concern. After a few days of oral arguments, during which the Obama administration’s lawyers were badly outclassed by the attorneys for the states challenging the law, public support for the law dropped to its lowest level and support for the Supreme Court rose.

    Some of this, ironically, may be a response to the perception that the president was both bullying the Court and appallingly ignorant of the history of judicial review of acts of Congress by the Supreme Court. For a president who graduated from Harvard Law School, served as editor of the Harvard Law Review, and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School, his statement suggested he either missed a lot during his three years at Harvard or, worse, assumed the White House press corps was so ignorant (or so in the bag for him) that he could say anything on the subject and it would pass muster, as was the case for the most part in the 2008 campaign. If the Court throws out the mandate, or perhaps the entire law, in late June, the signature achievement of the administration will be gone, or at least badly disabled. A case can be made that the president’s attack on the Court may make it easier for the Court to rule against the law.

    • Vigilant

      Jay, I was with you until the last sentence.

      My ultimate respect for Scalia, Thomas, Roberts and Alito is attributable to their unerringly Constitutionalist positions on the issues. A slight from the President might put the activists (Bader Ginsberg, Kagan, Sotomayor and Breyer) in a tizzy, but I have confidence that the conservatives will decide based on the Constitution.

    • r.p.

      Then you can do something really amazing. Something that even Obama dislikes doing. Stand in front of the unfurled flag and have your picture taken. Like a real patriot would do. Post it on FB or TW and let your friends know you don’t have or want an “abomination flag”.

      • usmcveteran

        Back in 1957 when I first entered Kindergarten, when I first learned the Pledge of Allegiance I was so proud to be American, I took a pillow case and with crayons I drew the American flag and hung it on my swing set in our back yard, and every day before school I would recite the “Pledge of Allegiance” to my country, I was only 6. My how things have changed.

  • MR. AMERICA

    There is nothing wrong with the flag, other than the stripes should have run vertically and crossed over the face of Mr. Obama, depicting his looking out from a jail cell.

    I believe they have the right to display this disgusting travesty as a form a freedom of speech. Just as I have the right to my opinion (at least so far). Although, if I were this person’s neighbor, I would contibute a dozen eggs some night, free of charge.

    Obama’s ineligibility: Prepare to defend America.

    Strategy to win:

    Unrelenting pressure must be brought to bear to ensure that, before the 2012 primary season, Obama’s original birth, Social Security and Selective Service records are subjected to reproducible forensic analyses conducted by reputable, independent
    investigators and laboratories above any suspicion of being influenced by or colluding with any public official, bureaucracy, political party, or other special-interest organization.

    Continue to bombard members of Congress demanding an investigation of Obama’s ineligibility and his alleged felonies.

    Write the words “Obama crimes” on sticky notes and place them everywhere.

    Because members of Congress are complicit in a cover-up of Obama’s alleged felonies, they may be guilty of “Misprison of felony”.

    Even one successful lawful citizen’s arrest of a Congress member will create political shock waves nationwide.

    The symbol of our movement to take back our country will be the American flag.

    Put a small flag in the window of your home or fly it outside. Fly a flag from your car, bike or baby stroller. Wear a flag pin or appropriate flag clothing.

    Obama and his extremist followers hate the American flag. It will give them fits and, more than any poll, it will expose the extent and depth of our opposition to his radical policies.

    We must be prepared for the possibility that Obama will be re-nominated by the leftist-controlled Democratic Party and the Obama-owned main stream media.

    In that case, the 2012 election will be a street fight, whose outcome will determine if the United States survives as a republic.

    In addition to being corrupt and inept, the Republican Party has participated in the violation of the Constitution, ignored the will of the people and now operates outside of the rule of law.

    As they are now composed and operate, the Republicans can no longer be trusted to decide our future. They must either be purged or replaced.

    Patriotic Americans must now begin to organize locally as independent voters in a bottom-up effort to challenge the political status quo.

    Use the Freedom Connector to connect with Tea Party activists and other conservatives taking action for less government and more freedom. If there is not such an organization in your area, start one and put up your link on the Freedom Connector web site. It can be a resource to network with other patriots and activists and to find or create events in your area.

    A nationwide political insurgency must be launched to counter Obama’s anti-American agenda and the rampant corruption in Washington D.C.

    We need all the able-bodied patriots we can get for this fight. Numbers matter.

    I believe Obama and his radical supporters will use all means legal or illegal to win in 2012.

    We should challenge Obama and the Democrats on their misguided policies, but in a street fight you can be sure that Obama, his thugs, his powerful leftist financiers and his radical followers will not play by any rules.

    Expect to see all forms of intimidation: race baiting, threats from unions, menacing of voters by Black Panthers and violent flash mobs.

    It will be necessary, therefore, to establish counter-intimidation teams to protect peaceful citizens trying to exercise their Constitutional rights.

    Our leaders have failed us. Patriots must now defend our country and our Constitution from those who intend to erode our liberty.

    “In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”—Mark Twain

      jay, unfortunately there’s a lot of people out there that really don’t care if barry is legal or not, it’s quite obvious our congress doesn’t or they don’t have the courage to make the investigation. even with all that, if the congress did make any atempt to do so, the election would be over by the time they came to any decision.
      most of the minorities in this country could care less, their concern is the welfare check and barry has been very generous in most litigation and handouts to keep them in his camp.

      if barry is defeated in november, it wouldn’t surprise me to see riots in the larger cities, that’s almost a given, the battle cry, rigged election, voter fraud and intimidation at the polls, while all the time their side will be doing this exact thing.

      Jay, when I enlisted back in 1963 I took the following oath: “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).
      I was also told in Basic that there were times that I would be justified to disobey and order.

      There is one for Officers: “I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.” (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)

      However, that oath I did not take it and just follow it for my initial enlistment then forget about it, ‘IT WAS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE’.

    A couple years ago some one thought it clever to put up a mexican flag above the US flag. A local person went up to the flag pole and took it down. That was courage. Get some patriots together and take it down. If you need a guard then talk to the local Sheriffs office and get some legal support.

      The man with his picture on the flag has a narcissistic personality disorder. I’m sure he was the one that had the flag made in his image as a sign he is trying to take over what America stands for. He has already said the Constitution is out dated why not the flag too!
      He changed the image on the plane because the original flag wasn’t good enough for him so this is just par for the course. It’s all about him, and what ever happens to this once great country is just collateral damage.

      • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        Renee, as you can see from my name I served in the Military for most of my adult life and had thought I had seen it all until I saw that ——————- (Fill in the Blank) flag. I brought some of the things I dearly wanted to forget. Like those ———- (filling the blank) propaganda flags with PoPot’s, Kim Jung Il, Ho Che Min, Salin and other Soviet Dictators, or any other tyranical dictator across this glob.

        If I ever see that ——— (fill in the Blank) rag I will ask the person that is displaying it to remove it and then inform that person that it is against the law to deface the American flag. If asked I will either hand him the pamphel that shows that person the proper flag ediquete. If I don’t have one I’ll tell that person where they can get one, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, VFW, American Leagion, the nearest Vietnam Veterans of America chapter, the Library, City Hall (?), or they can google it.

    John Wilch,
    I have nothing but respect for all those, like yourself, that have served our country. Which by the way..THANK YOU! It breaks my heart to think that, just like with Hitler, so many people were dooped by the lies he spread. Look at the outcome of that and it is happening here in our country as well. Now, more than ever we are losing our freedoms, our hopes, our dreams and everything that men and women like you fought so hard to obtain. My father and both brothers served this country and I know they are disappointed in the outcome of their labor. My prayer is that God would open the eyes of these people who have been blinded by a smooth talker that is walking hand in hand with each one of them to their demise and little do they know that all he’s doing is literally smooth talking them to death. Lord help us all, give us wisdom and strength and reveal the truth to those that are blinded to it. YES, God, bless the U.S. of A!
