Martial Law Flags Ordered
What Does A Backwards American Flag With Yellow Fringe Mean?
Free Press International Commentary2.11.2005I do not claim to know everything about the backwards American flag with yellow fringe but this articles purpose is to find the truth, hopefully with some of FPIs readers.Every soldier in the Army must now wear the U.S. flag insignia on his or her utility uniform, according to a new Army rule. Soldiers have until Oct. 1, 2005, to get the insignia sewn on their uniforms.The flag Schoomaker has authorized for wear is the "reverse field" or "backwards flag" patch, in red, white and blue with yellow fringe.I have gone over World War I,World War II and Vietnam pictures and have yet to find an American flag on their combat uniforms. Army Regulation 670-1states that when authorized for application to the proper uniform the American flag patch is to be worn, right or left shoulder, so that “the star field faces forward, or to the flag’s own right. When worn in this manner, the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer 'moves forward'. The appropriate replica for the right shoulder sleeve is identified as the ‘reverse side flag’.”This makes no sense. What if the soldiers are marching 'downwind'?As one person wrote, The "backwards flag" is no silly affectation. It is part of a well-planned and coordinated effort to subvert our national sovereignty. As pointed out, reversing the display of a nation's flag can sometimes result in the flag becoming that of another nation. At any rate, it ceases to be a legally emblematic of the sponsoring nation. It is part of the body of the International Laws of Warfare that combatants not PROPERLY displaying the flag of their nation on their uniforms are not considered to be under the command and control of that nation. All this nonsense about a flag emblem sewn on a uniform not looking like a flag on a pole moving backwards is the most ridiculous and transparent non-reason that I can imagine to try to disguise the real intent. No rational 7-year old would buy such idiocy, but most adults will because they have had more years of government indoctrination. Because we are fighting a worldwide "War on Terrorism", surrender of any and all of our rights, individual as well as national, is expected and will, almost universally, be gladly given. Martial law under a high-tech police state is just around the corner, folks. As to the yellow fringe on our flags, APFN states, The flags displayed in State courts and courts of the United States have gold or yellow fringes. That is your WARNING that you are entering into a foreign enclave, the same as if you are stepping into a foreign embassy and you will be under the jurisdiction of that flag. The flag with the gold or yellow fringe has no constitution, no laws, and no rules of court, and is not recognized by any nation on the earth, and is foreign to you and the United States of America. more informationMILITARY FLAG WITH THE GOLD FRINGEMartial Law Flag "Pursuant to 4 U.S.C. chapter 1, §§1, 2, & 3; Executive Order 10834, August 21, 1959; 24 F.R.6865; a military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a YELLOW FRINGE border on three sides. The President of the United States designates this deviation from the regular flag, by executive order, and in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief of the military. The placing of a fringe on the national flag, the dimensions of the flag and the arrangement of the stars in the union are matters of detail not controlled by statute, but are within the discretion of the President as Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy." 34 Ops.
