          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.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Oscar-Claude Monet(1840—1926) is a French painter and one of the founders of the French artistic movement of impressionism. Biography: Claude Oscar Monet was born on November 14, 1840 in Paris. When he was just five years old, his family relocated to Normandy, Le Havre. His father wanted Claude to become a grocer and join the family business, but the son, since childhood, took great interest in fine arts, in particular, took with pleasure in painting caricatures. On the sea coast of Normandy, Monet met Eugene Boudin, the popular landscape painter and one of the ambassadors of impressionism. Boudin taught the young Monet some techniques in painting nature. In 1860, Monet was called up to join the army and he served in Algeria only for two years instead of the stipulated seven-year term: he was ill with typhoid and the intervention of his aunt helped the artist to demobilize. Monet took admission in university in the arts faculty but was disillusioned with the approach towards painting taught in the university. Having left the educational institution, he joined a painting workshop, which was organized by Charles Gleyre. In the workshop, he made friends with artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Frederic Bazille. They were practically contemporaries and had similar views towards art and soon formed a core group of impressionists. The portrait "Camille" or "The Woman in the Green Dress", painted in 1866, brought fame to the painter. Later on, Camille became the wife of the artist and they had a son "Jean". After the start of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, Monet leaves for England, where he studies the works of John Constable and William Turner. After returning back to France at the end of 1872, Monet paints the popular landscape "Impression. Sunrise" (Impression, soleil levant). This is the painting, which gave the name to the group of impressionists and the art movement. The painting was displayed at the first impressionistic exhibition held in 1874. In 1879, Camille died of tuberculosis. In 1892, Monet remarries Alice Hoschede. Even before the marriage, Alice helped the artist by taking care of the house and bringing up the children from his first marriage. In 1883, Monet together with Alice leaves for Givenry in Upper Normandy, some 80 km northwest from Paris. Alice died in 1911. The artist endured a lot and also lost his elder son Jean, who died in 1914. In the beginning of the 1920s, Monet suffered from cataracts and had to undergo two operations. The artist died on December 5, 1926 in Giverny and was buried in a local church cemetery. The most popular paintings of Monet: * Impression.
