An 86-year-old Ohio woman is currently fighting her townhome management after being ordered to remove an American flag from her front porch.
Julia Lease, who has lived in the Whitehall complex for more than 36 years, discovered the violation notice on her door earlier this week.
“I thought, after all these years, how can they make me take my flag down?” Lease told the Columbia Dispatch. “I can’t see how an American flag can detract from anything.”
Simply stating, “Please remove flag from your front porch. Thank you,” Lease says the note fails to specify which specific rule was allegedly violated.
According to Lease, an American flag has flown outside her home since she originally moved in, with the latest flag being less than a month old.
Ironically, reporters attempting to question townhome employees at a nearby leasing office noticed as many as six American flags, many of which were tattered, lining the parking lot.
Lease says she currently has no plans to remove the flag and is awaiting the townhouse management’s next move.
“It means to me that I live in a country worth fighting for,” Lease said. “It belongs up.”
As the news spread through the community, local citizens became outraged and began planning a Sunday protest at the Whitehall complex.
Jeremy Deeter, head organizer with Unite Ohio, told Infowars that the complex attempted to quell the protest by allowing Lease to fly the flag under “special conditions” while other residents must meet certain guidelines. According to Deeter, Lease will not be satisfied “everyone can fly their flags freely.”
“A local celebrity is donating 250 flags for us to pass out,” Deeter said. “So we will be out there passing out flags and asking all of the residents to put their rent payments in escrow accounts until the rental office stops these policies.”
Unbelievably, Lease’s situation is one of countless as Americans are increasingly demonized for flying the country’s flag.
Just last June, a 73-year-old veteran was threatened with foreclosure after refusing to pay an $8,000 dollar fine for displaying a small American flag in a plant pot outside his Florida home.
That same month, a Texas man was told to remove his flag by his apartment manager after it was deemed a “threat to the Muslim community.”
An Oregon woman was threatened with eviction for having an American flag in her front window last March.
Putin’s “Nuclear” Remark Checks U.S. Moves In Eastern Europe
On August 1, prior to the unverified claim Russia has invaded Ukraine, Obama mentioned the alleged treaty violation during a telephone call between to the two leaders.
The U.S. claims Russia tested a cruise missile prohibited under the treaty signed by President Reagan and General Secretary of the Soviet Union Gorbachev on December 8, 1987.
The treaty eliminated nuclear and conventional ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with intermediate ranges.
During coverage of the alleged treaty violation, the establishment media neglected to mention that the United States has violated and abrogated a number of international treaties, including the landmark 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty.
The U.S. considered the ABM treaty a “Cold War relic.”
In 2002 then president George W. Bush announced the treaty is “now behind us” and declared his commitment to deploy missile defenses “as soon as possible.”
In 2007, then Russian Prime Minister Putin said the so-called NATO missile “defense shield” would lead to a new arms race and enhance the probability of mutual destruction.
Poland, the Czech Republic, and Romania have indicated they would host anti-missile systems, but in 2009 Obama said a defense against short- and medium-range missiles using AEGIS warships would be deployed instead.
During the 2012 presidential campaign, contender Mitt Romney said Obama’s move represented a “gift to Russia,” a remark reflecting the attitude of Republicans and many in the establishment toward nuclear deescalation.
In addition to placing anti-missile systems in Eastern Europe, Russia is concerned about the United States using the situation in Ukraine as a pretext to introduce troops near its border.
Since the beginning of the year, the U.S. has deployed hundreds of troops in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
U.S. Violates Treaties with Russia
According to the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research and the Lawyers’ Committee on Nuclear Policy, the United States routinely violates international treaties.
“The United States has violated, compromised or acted to undermine in some crucial way every treaty that we have studied in detail,” said Nicole Deller, principal editor and co-author of a report produced by the two organizations.
In addition to the ABM treaty, the U.S. has violated the 1970 Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty.
The Bush administration undercut the NPT when it insisted reductions in strategic weapons previously agreed upon with Russia can be reversed.
The U.S. reached this conclusion after a Nuclear Posture Review expanded “options for using nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states.”
