The Tea Party is no grassroots organization. It was born of the Koch brothers and Freedomworks, with the help of Dick Armey. Along with Cheney and Armey, these brothers, should be arrested and tried for Treason for the reason they do not abide by the results of a Democratic Election. Instead, they have plotted to undermine our Democracy and the Federal Government during a time of war.
With the formation of a Coalition of Real Freedom Fighters, it is now understood by real world leaders, that the war George W. Bush and Cheney waged in Iraq, is not over, and may never be over. If this is the case, then it is up to the Commander in Chief, and his party, to make long term plans to fight this war, without being hindered by real traitors, and a insane Congress that is AWOL.
My illustrious ancestors fought the British as South Carolina Patriots, and may have waved the ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ flag over their head. On this day, I grab this flag out of the clutches of fake military wing-nuts loyal to the fake End Time Rapture, Quacks, who together form a co-terrorist coalition – that have done nothing to bring the battle to ISIS. Instead, these treacherous Sore Losers employ ISIS to defeat Democratic candidates.
I hand over the flag of True Patriots to our Commander in Chief to do with it what he will. I suggest he use it to represent the Coalition of World Freedom Fighters, a means to bring a message to ISIS.
“Don’t tread on us, or you will die!”
The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. Positioned below the rattlesnake are the words “Dont tread on me”. The flag is named after American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden (1724–1805), who designed it in 1775 during the American Revolution. It was also used by the Continental Marines as an early motto flag, along with the Moultrie Flag.
In 1754, during the French and Indian War, Franklin published his famous woodcut of a snake cut into eight sections. It represented the colonies, with New England joined together as the head and South Carolina as the tail, following their order along the coast. Under the snake was the message “Join, or Die“. This was the first political cartoon published in an American newspaper.
In fall 1775, the United States Navy was established by General George Washington in his role as Commander in Chief of all Continental Forces, before Esek Hopkins was named Commodore of the Navy. The Navy began with seven ships, often called “Washington Cruisers”, that flew the simple triangle shaped green tree with a trunk, the “Liberty Tree Flag” with the motto “Appeal to Heaven” according to the October 20, 1775 letter of Washington’s aide Colonel Joseph Reed, that is in the Library of Congress. The illustration on this page shows four flags, the one in the upper left is a common artist’s rendition, but is incorrect at least as far as the motto, which is “Appeal to Heaven”, not “AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN” according to the letter from Washington’s aide, and Caslon was the common typeface of the day, used on both the Declaration and the Constitution, not the sans serif typeface shown on the flag image.
Those first ships were used to intercept incoming British ships carrying war supplies to the British troops in the colonies to both deprive the supplies to the British and to supply to the Continental Army. One ship captured by Captain John Manley had 30,000 pairs of shoes on it, but the admiralty agent demanded his 2 1/2 per cent commission before he would release the cargo for Washington’s army, so many soldiers marched barefoot in the snow. To aid in this, the Second Continental Congress authorized the mustering of five companies of Marines to accompany the Navy on their first mission. The first Marines enlisted in the city of Philadelphia, and they carried drums painted yellow, depicting a coiled rattlesnake with thirteen rattles, and the motto “Don’t Tread on Me.” This is the first recorded mention of the future Gadsden flag’s symbolism.
At the Congress, Continental Colonel Christopher Gadsden represented his home state of South Carolina. He was one of seven members of the Marine Committee who were outfitting the first naval mission.
Before the departure of that first mission in December 1775, the newly appointed commander-in-chief of the Navy, Commodore Esek Hopkins, received the yellow rattlesnake flag from Gadsden to serve as the distinctive personal standard of his flagship. It was displayed at the mainmast.
Col. Gadsden presented to the Congress an elegant standard, such as is to be used by the commander in chief of the American Navy; being a yellow field, with a lively representation of a rattlesnake in the middle in the attitude of going to strike and these words underneath, “Don’t tread on me.”
My kindred, Samuel Rosamond, Lemuel Benton, and Gavin Witherspoon, fought under the Francis Marion ‘The Swamp Fox’ in the War of Independence. John Witherspoon is a Signer and is kin to the Preston family, as are the three Patriots above. These four men are kindred to the Stewart family, and thus William and Harry Windsor. Add to this roster, the Hart and Hull family, then here is America’s most illustrious and Patriotic Family.
According to President Obama and the Pentagon, five countries—Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates—joined the United States in last night’s airstrikes in Syria. It’s a staged family portrait: five Sunni governments united against extremism. Obama says the coalition shows that “people and governments in the Middle East are rejecting ISIL and standing up [for] peace and security.”
He sent Lt. Col. Lemuel Benton with sixteen men to seize the pass over Horse Creek. Horry’s men stumbled over a sentry who fired a shot, and they quickly rushed Sumter’s home with Col. Marion’s remaining 134 men closely behind them. In a brief fight, they killed or captured 22 British Regulars and two Loyalists. One of the Continental prisoners, Capt. Perry Benson of the 5th MD Regiment, was wounded as well.
