        • The Coup D’E tat of the United States Press

          Red 'X' Society·Wednesday, March 1, 2017

          by Tracy Mapes

          SACRAMENTO,California--In America, it has long been held that there is a sacred bond between the United States Government, and the People of the United States.

          That bond is the unbendable document called the Constitution of the United States, and, as I am about to embark, this bond has been broken by the Corruption of Our Central Bodies of Government, Executive, Legislature, Judiciary, Agency, and the Press.
          This means that while Americans have been kept busy with the non-essential, info-tainment of the Press, both Print and Broadcast, these bodies along with all key positions in the Government of the United States, have been subverted and replaced with loyalist Felons and Street Prostitutes as legitimate Journalists, Political Appointees, Judges, and even Entertainment Personnel.

          This means that along with the Silent Subversion of the 1st Amendment of Our Constitution, a facade of disinformation has cloaked the atrocity with unfounded fears of the necessity to increase the National Security risks assessed to convince the Citizens of the United States that loss of their personal freedoms, restriction on travel, and the production of “Fake News” in warranted to maintain the Secrecy of the Criminal Enterprise Our Government has become.

          I became aware of this situation in quite an unconventional manner.

          As I have described over the past 8 years, to United States Government agencies including the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Congress, the United States Senate, and News Media alike, without material response, I met over 150 Pimps, Prostitutes, and Individuals involved in criminal acts in the related to the before mentioned street crimes on the streets of Sacramento, California during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.

          Since my involvement with these persons over a 7 year period, 2 of the persons involved in narcotics use and prostitution have become Presidents of the United States of America.

          With the addition of a First Lady, a Supreme Court Justice, State Senator, City Mayor, and County District Attorney of Sacramento, there are nearly 150 persons that have been placed, appointed, hired, or infiltrated into the Newsrooms of America.
          One could look at this as a miracle of some great proportion, but in fact, the pattern sings of racketeering, espionage, and the criminal manipulation of All Avenues of Control and Command of the United States Government and the Media.

          And, after engaging in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America ...I find this UN-Acceptable!
          The Red ‘X’ Society was formed as an Idea, to redress this wrong, and hold those accountable for this Horrific Tragedy of United States Government Miss-Management, and urge All Americans to display the Red ‘X’ until this matter is resolved in accordance with the written word of the U.S. Constitution.

          Two minor points for improvement:

          2) darken his head a bit - to match the rest of his body

This contest is fueled by the following news: Larry King (born November 19, 1933) is a popular American journalist. He is considered as one of the best hosts of talk shows in the USA. Larry King was born in Brooklyn, New York. His parents were Jennie and Edward Zeiger, Jews, who emigrated from Belarus (his Father was from Minsk and his mother came from Pinsk). Their first son, Irvin, was born in 1932 but died at the age of six due to appendicitis. After Larry, they had one more son, Marty, in their family. Larry King started working as a Barman. Larry King is considered as one of the best hosts of talk shows in USA. In his youth, Larry King was quite handsome: long hair – according to the fashion of that time, sufficiently proper face and teeth, not similar to his current jaws, and he even had no problems with his vision. The majority of American showmen, producers and the most desperate of actors were born in Brooklyn, New York or in the Bronx. Few are from Harlem, but they look indifferently on screen. Lawrence Harvey Zeiger - from Brooklyn. He was born in the year, when madman Adolf came to power in Germany, who started to build the third Reich and concentration camps. "All boys attended school, and I worked", - stated the future broadcasting King not without sarcasm, for hints of him being "under-educated" sounded for the last 50 years. Always he dreamt of working in radio, but only at the age of 23 could he reach Miami, where he was taken into a small station as a cleaner and to perform miscellaneous jobs. The personnel were thin and when the announcer resigned, the manager took the young boy from Brooklyn for lapels (braces weren't around yet) and said that the name "Zeiger" was too Jewish or German". Both variants were considered disastrous for American show business. Zeiger became Larry King and was paid 55 dollars per week, which was not bad in those times. The first interview of the young reporter was that of a waiter at a small restaurant. Conditions appeared natural and as it was too hot, King removed the jacket. The interlocutor was pleased (from here, the braces appeared!). For more than ten years of successful performances on radio, TV and again radio, Larry Kings returned to his native station... For the time being, Larry King lived by the principle: how good to be rich and healthy! Suddenly, something happened: money was gone, and with it, even health. Roulette and playing cards and the result was a $300 000 debt. Harvey Zeiger was arrested on December 20, 1971. He was accused for grand larceny of business partner Louis Wolfson. His history appeared very dirty and scandalous. For three years, Larry King disappeared from radio and worked as a PR, wrote articles, but it could not satisfy the thirst for "Live". Returning he became triumphant. King's show instantly became popular countrywide. Larry King complained that he could never interview Christ and Lincoln. Though jokers released a series "Larry-King-Live" with all people, but characters inaccessible physically: Santa Claus, Lara Croft, Immanuel Kant... Certainly, the audience does not perceive Larry King without braces, horn-rimmed spectacles and a powerful jaw (dentures) any more. It's long forgotten that 55 dollars a week. Larry King one of the most highly paid journalists in the world. The previous contract of King with company CNN fetched $7 million per year. Money was aplenty. King decided to "build" employers; all the same, the employers earned huge money on advertisements during his show. Newspapers came out with headings about the "indefinite absence of King on health grounds". Even the news was making rounds that "Sarah Margaret Ferguson – Duchess of York" will replace King. Management was slightly startled- CNN is not afraid of hiring the British duchess but the threat of Larry King leaving CNN and joining competing channel "Fox News" appeared valid. As a result, he got a $14 million salary and a share in the profits of corporation "Time Warner". A private aircraft for transporting Larry King braces and dentures, from New York, where he lives, to Los Angeles, from where the show is aired "Live". The contract not only provoked an avalanche of migrations of popular journalists from channel to channel, but also has opened a new era in journalism. But all this started after the success. And then, CNN started experimenting with direct calls to the studio (in 1985). The show "Larry King Live" is aired on New York time at 21.00, which is exactly at 12.00 our time, which is prime time. Five times a week. Larry never poses questions which have predefined answers. The number of callers already touches fifty thousand. Larry King attends the show under-prepared. He does not list down the questions and hands them over to the guest. He is always ready, as a person to whom everything is curious - such was his childish interest to everything that is why he is able to move and speak. He is very cool to the rebukes and reacts very little, but knows how lucky he was in life. "I am the lucky favorite of fortune"- he admits openly. He has seven wives as in the case of Blue Beard. All the wives are alive and healthy and along with them – he had two "domestic partners". The last marriage was with Scottish woman Shawn Southwick, who gave twins to the aged daddy.
