LDS missionaries install illegal flagpole on top of Mount Olympus [owned by Lds Church] ^ | June 26, 2014 | Maddy RichardsPosted on 6/27/2014, 9:59:10 AM by ColofornianSALT LAKE CITY —

Eight LDS missionaries serving in the Salt Lake City East Mission and their leaders are working with the Forest Service to remove a flagpole that the missionaries cemented to the top of Mount Olympus earlier this week.

Hikers discovered the flagpole with a U.S. Flag and an autographed mission T-shirt on Forest Service lands and alerted rangers. The Forest Service confirmed that posting the flagpole was indeed breaking the law.“You would need to get a permit to put up a flagpole.

In wilderness it wouldn’t be allowed at all,” said Kathy Jo Pollock of Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.Jessica Moody, a spokeswoman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said the missionaries were responsible for the placement of the flagpole, and that Salt Lake City East Mission is “looking into this and will address it appropriately.”

But a complaint from an anonymous neighbor got Schaffer in some hot water.

Schaffer got a citation from the city of Hypoluxo, Florida that said he needed a building permit to put up the flagpole.

The Marine told a TV station “it’s sad. It’s sad that we have to go through that just to fly a flag.”

McDonald's flies flag upside-down



Many wondered whether or not the McDonald’s upside-down flag was a deliberate political message. Turns out, the upside-down flag wasn’t intentional disrespect, but rather a timely, accidental coincidence.


A local reporter for NEWS9 had called the McDonald’s restaurant earlier Wednesday to ask why the flag was flown upside-down, usually taken as a sign of distress. Reportedly, the employee who answered the phone said that the flag was flown that way on purpose.


Later, a person identifying herself as a manager of that particular McDonald’s called to clarify her employee’s comments.

A Letter to the Neighborhood Flag Freaks by Roger Young

Dear Neighbor,

Upon arising this morning I discovered a small Yankee War Flag had been planted in my front yard. A tag on the flag stick listed your email address so I must assume you are responsible for this trespass. I noticed other flags had also been placed on properties up and down the block.

Did it ever occur to you to ask permission of the property owner before placing a flag, or any other object for that matter, on his/her property?

City Council: American Flag is Clutter

July 3, 2012 2 comments

A Texas city council has voted to ban American flags from a local cemetary. Why? Because these people want to keep the cemetary free of “clutter.” That’s right… according to these “leaders,” the American flag is “clutter” and cannot be placed beside a tombstone.

JetBlue 191 Jumble: Izzy “Iran” IXXI? | Veterans Today

April 18, 2012 Leave a comment

By Captain Eric H. May, Ghost Troop CO

In my recent article, JetBlue 191 Jumble: False Flag Flight?, I presented well-documented evidence that the U.S. government is ready, willing and able to mass murder its own citizens, then assign the blame to other countries in order to justify military adventures.

Accordingly, my suspicion that Flight 191 was dedicated to destruction isn’t at all fanciful. Indeed, it can easily be inferred from international and internet articles that are either unreported or under-reported by the American media.

False flags are feasible:

Basically, it is a way for governments to ‘play victim’ in order to
mask their own aggression.

History is replete with such operations, but it’s getting harder
and harder for governments to conduct false flag operations because
they’ve run the play over and over again.

People are paying more attention now, and we’ve seen it before…

Dariano v. Morgan Hill Unified School District (N.D. Cal.), decided the day before yesterday, upholds a California high school’s decision to forbid students from wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. (See here and here for more on this case.)

On Cinco de Mayo in 2009, a verbal exchange and altercation arose between a group of predominantly white and a group of Mexican students. This altercation involved an exchange of profanities and threats were made. A makeshift American flag was put on one of the trees on campus.

Are Homeowners Associations Too Powerful?

Y100 ^ | 2/17/11 | John JulitzPosted on Thursday, February 17, 2011 3:33:34 PM by MissTed

The debate is over how much power an association should have and Harvella Jones, President of the National Homeowners Advocate Group, says associations can serve a purpose, but they’ve gone too far.“My goal is to stop the foreclosures because they don’t have the right to take our homes for maintenance fees when the Constitution does not give them the authority,” says Jones.Jones adds some associations have been compared to the mafia for how they act.“

That is how they operate sometimes and sometimes they use strong arm methods to shut you down when you start complaining,” Jones says. “I have had people been physically abused at meetings where they couldn’t even talk or anything of that nature.”But Sandy Denton, Chair of the Texas Community Association Advocates, says in the long run associations provide a valuable service to homeowners.

“Probably the most recognizable benefits include protection and enhancement of property values so that next door to you someone doesn’t have their car up on cinder blocks for weeks on end,” says Denton.

Despite some of the negative attention, Denton notes most people support the role associations play.“70% of the people believe that the rules of their associations help protect property values and 89% believe the boards work in the best interest of their community,” Denton says.

“The international symbol of distress is flying a nation’s flag upside down.” Has America Ever Been In Greater Peril?

“The international symbol of distress is flying a nation‘s flag upside down.”

Has America Ever Been In Greater Peril?

By Ron Ewart  Sunday, January 2, 2011

Not since the Civil War has America been in such grave peril.  Then it was on the precipice of splitting into two opposing nations with vastly differing positions on slavery and state’s rights.  Today, it faces an even greater threat.  It has been besieged, not by cannon fire and muskets between brother and brother, but by a failed ideology that has swept the planet and is on the verge of collapsing almost every world economy.

America is not being conquered by another more powerful nation by the force of arms, America is disintegrating from within and the disintegration is being perpetrated by an elite group of traitors that are intent on destroying the most prosperous nation on Earth, by driving it into national bankruptcy.  These traitors have been successful in dividing Americans between those that are self-reliant, responsible, productive and generous and those who have become hopelessly dependent on government.  We fight amongst each other in a war of classes and are being diverted from the diabolical plans of the real enemy …… the move by this elite group of traitors towards a socialist utopia and an Absolute Democrat Monarchy, funded by the sweat, labor and tears of those who toil at honest, productive work.

You need not take our word for it, you only need to look around you and see the divisions widen between all Americans over issues and problems created by government, but never solved by government.  The truth is, we are being played for suckers and we are biting at the bait.  If we are united, we survive with honor and dignity.  If we are divided, we fall.

Has America ever been in greater peril?  The answer is a resounding NO!  Before America finds itself in the graveyard containing the bleached bones of failed nations, all red-blooded Americans had better rise up and smell the roses before the lid closes on our national casket forever.  What America needs to make its blood run hot wth passion and resolve and spring into action is a symbol of unity, a symbol that fans the fire of patriotism in the hearts of men and women across this great land.  America needs a symbol that all Americans can rally around, a symbol that instills the call of duty on each of our souls, a duty to save the last bastion of freedom on this Earth, before there is no one left that even remembers what freedom is all about, what price was paid to claim it and from whence it came.

Since the international symbol of distress is the nation’s flag flying upside down and since America is in distress like never before, we call on all Americans to turn the American flag that they are flying upside down, as a symbol of national distress.  Those who don’t know the symbol will ask why and we will tell them, so that they too can join with those of us who, to the last man say, “we will not go quietly into the night!” And to all those who try to steal our liberty, dilute our sovereignty, blur our borders and sell America to the highest bidder, we say: “‘Tis an evil thing that you do and so yee shall sow, so shall yee reap.”

School makes boy take American flag off bike

November 12, 2010 Leave a comment

13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He’s had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was asked told to take it down. A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property. “In this country we’re supposed to be free,” said Cody. “And I should be able to wave my flag wherever I want to.

And they’re telling me I can’t.” Cody’s grandfather says the school was concerned about racial tensions or uprisings because of the flag. He feels if there was really a problem it should have been brought up two months ago, not during Veterans week.

“No action should be taken. We don’t want any repercussion,” said Roger. “We just want Cody to be proud of what he’s doing.”
