A thread on the history of North Carolina's state flag. #FlagDay 🧵

In Colonial North Carolina, the flag most often seen would have been that of the colony’s mother country, England, and later Great Britain. Image
Prior to the Act of Union in 1707, the flag would have been known as St. George’s Cross. After 1707, the symbol became the Union flag, incorporating the Scottish St. Andrew’s Cross with a blue field St. George’s Cross.
Lord William Tryon carried two such flags with him during the Alamance campaign of 1771 during the War of Regulation.

Numerous locally made flags were likely utilized within the state’s borders during the Revolution, but virtually nothing is known of them.

News you can use.🧵 Image
A guy who got arrested for driving without a license is spending more time in prison than most of the capitol rioters. Garland/DOJ have been slow-walking these prosecutions on purpose and delivering a bare minimum. There's no legal rationale for it.

Day 181 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

Yesterday, the thread was interrupted by @TwitterSupport banning me for 12 hours and their Execs refusing to reply to requests. Thanks to those who tried to help but the whole system is crazy
So what was my "crime"?

Errr.. I wrote about this story which is all over Twitter and international media.

It may have been Kremlin trolls, but I was almost instantly banned when mocking the FSB's videos.
Apparently I released "intimate details". WTF??…
When @TwitterSupport's arbitrary ban expires you have two options.
Only at that point can you dispute Twitter's ban.
If you challenge the reason for the ban you stay banned for two weeks while they "investigate"
If you accept your tweet was wrong it's deleted and you're "free"

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4656: Donald Trump's Contempt while hugging the American Flag

#BodyLanguageExpert #BodyLanguage #DonaldTrump #FlagDay
2/ To those with Republican ideology, these images (and others taken of this moment) have been idealized and dramatically misunderstood — for the actual emotion Trump was thinking-feeling in this moment was that of Contempt.
3/ This is not simply 'the way Trump smiles'. This is a classic expression of Contempt — which he maintained during his entire time of hugging the American flag.

Thread 🧵 (no pun intended)
"Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation."
~ Second Continental Congress, June 14, 1777.

Pictured is the first known photograph of the Star-Spangled Banner, which inspired Francis Scott Key to write the poem "The Defence of Fort McHenry", photographed in 1873 at the Boston Navy Yard.

Maj. George Armistead commissioned Mary Young Pickersgill, a professional flag maker from Baltimore, Maryland, to make a garrison flag measuring 30 by 42 feet with 15 stars and 15 stripes in 1813. She would make a smaller 17 by 25 foot flag as well.

🇺🇸 A #FlagDay thread from a vet. It's time for Republican to surrender OUR flag ⤵️

🇺🇸 I’m not much of a flag guy.

🇺🇸 I mean I like our flag OK. Betsy did a nice job with it, but I bet she could have never pictured all those stars getting jammed into a little box like that.
🇺🇸 Colors are nice — though red, white and blue are a little overdone in the flag department, if you ask me.

🇺🇸 I do like seeing it wave on a brilliantly sunny day with a deep blue sky as a backdrop. Beautiful.
🇺🇸 I’d rather people didn’t burn it — seems kind of extreme — but hell, some points are worth making no matter what, I guess.

🇺🇸 My point is, it’s just a flag. Worse than burning it to me, is using it as a political tool.

Starts 6/12 - Peak 6/14 - End 6-17
The #Priestkings started this cycle off w/ a financial depression sequence on 6/11 when their spiteful #ScorpionMoon opposed the position of Venus🔴Uranus in monetary Taurus.
Here's my thread describing the projected and subsequent effects on global markets and monetary policy of their Scorpion Moon in Opposition to the Venus🔴Uranus position in Monetary Taurus on June 11.
Tuesday June 14th, at the height of the #FullMoon Strawberry #SuperMoon, the #RomanCult #PriestKings will be celebrating #FlagDay
They gave us our flag. The flag is a representative of their corporate system of control over us 14th Amendment American slaves. #T3FullMoonRitual

At this very moment Venus is conjunct Uranus while the Scorpion Moon is in direct opposition to their position in Taurus.
This is a tumultuous moment indictive of a sudden reversal in monetary policy effecting the public at large. A decision has been made. ImageImage
The effects of this decision will be played out into the coming Full Moon cycle which starts tomorrow and ends Friday the 17th. This cycle peaks on #FlagDay June 14.
Today as the Scorpion Moon opposed the Venus🔴Uranus position in monetary Taurus, #Bitcoin lost ground. As a matter of fact, as the alignment grew stronger, and the moon opposed exact, #BTC took a sudden nosedive.
Uncanny? ImageImage

This is how our flag would have looked like, if Mahatma Gandhi had his way. Of course, Gandhi bhakts won't tell you this, so read on...

This day in 1947, the Tricolour was adopted as India's National Flag. But do you know that Mahatma Gandhi wanted a Union Jack in one corner of the new flag? Something like this flag design seen here which was proposed by our first Governor-General Lord Louis Mountbatten. 2/n
Gandhiji, unlike Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, was not an enemy of the Empire. He favoured Dominion Status under the British monarch (which we got in 1947), not Purna Swaraj, or complete freedom of India as Netaji strove for. 3/n

Today is #FlagDay and folks are so proud waving their red-white-blue.  It is truly unfortunate we have been brainwashed by design to accept a fake nation. Yes the United States is not a is a Corporation since 1789.
...United States Code Title 28 § 3002 (15)(a) § 3002. Definition (15) "United States" means-(A) a Federal corporation 

Many on here will reject this truth because we are brainwashed unless you have the guts to face your Marxist program to embrace the truth!
So many parrot to say the United States/USA is your country, but did you EVER FIND the The United States/USA is a nation or the Union of a one Nation in The declaration of independence, the Article of confederation, the state constitution and the federal constitution?

Today is #FlagDay. But did you also know that is also the anniversary of an important US Supreme Court case regarding the flag and our civil rights? #OTD1943 the landmark Supreme Court decision of West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 was handed down.
The court held that the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment protects students from being forced to salute the American flag or say the Pledge of Allegiance in public school.…
Background: Tension has long existed between those who believe mandatory flag saluting & pledges of allegiance encourage patriotism & strong civic consciousness - vs those who believe that it goes against their personal and religious beliefs.

Joined @SteveDaines on #FlagDay in introducing a Constitutional amendment to prohibit the desecration of the United States flag.

A flag worth dying for is a flag worth protecting. 🇺🇸 Image
While we should always be mindful of First Amendment rights, the American flag signifies the founding principles that countless men and women have given their lives to preserve.
Adding a Constitutional amendment to protect this symbol of freedom and liberty is not an attack on another Constitutional amendment; rather, it is an affirmation of the unifying principles our nation stands for. #FlagDay2019
