FLAGS AT SENDOFF SPEACH HAVE ONLY 11 STRIPES (FALSE)
Someone pointed out on another thread that the flags at Trumps sendoff speech only have 11 stripes. You can see this in the image below and in the video. Anyone have any explanation for this?

Update: At 1:52 of the video you can see 13 stripes on the far right flag.


Thread: 17 flags behind President Trump this morning!

Wow weird!

I had one theory that Marshall Law would end up dividing the country into the 13 original states (where I guessed most of the Elites are hidden) versus the rest of the country. Maybe only 11 states are really part of that Elite.

Gold fringe denotes the law of the water and the fraudulent corporation of the United States.

From a historical flag description,

"Note that the flag has just 11 stripes. After May of 1861, when Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina joined 8 other states that had officially seceded from the Union, this count may have conveyed Southern Sympathies. Some flag historians have suggested that flags such as this may have been displayed in the North, or the in Border States of Missouri, Kentucky, Delaware, and Maryland, to convey hidden meaning, marking a spot where Southern-leaning parties could find a meeting place, preferential treatment, a safe house, or some other advantage. Many New Yorkers, for example, had significant monetary investment in Southern cotton and wartime communications with one-another may have sometimes demanded considerable use of discretion.

While hidden meaning might be the reason, the realities of the mid-19th century were that a count of 11 stripes, particularly in a homemade flag, might just as well have reflected fabric scarcity.

Another interesting trait can be seen in the fact that the canton rests on a red stripe. When this scarce condition occurs, some flag historians have referred to it as the “blood stripe” or the “war stripe”, suggesting the flag was constructed in this manner when the nation was at war. In actuality, the placement probably occurred more often by accident. Not everyone knew where the canton was traditionally placed, and, because there was no official specification until 1912, there was no official standard. Whatever the case may be with regarding the reason, the war stripe feature is highly coveted by collectors and the stripe count of 11 adds an interesting dimension. Both add wartime aspects of educational interest and value."

BLOOD STRIPE / WAR STRIPE is quite interesting.

False. I've looked at it multiple times. There are 6 stripes below the stars and 5 along the side of the stars.

Thanks for that Historical Description

So it is a secret message from the Military?

Or is the Former Elite of the Country (that used to be in the South) now running this country (as liberals) somehow rubbing peoples faces in it?
