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

          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: Twins are multiple children who were born simultaneously to a single mother — twins, triplets etc. Twins can be monozygotic (identical) and dizygotic (fraternal) twins. Monozygotic (Identical) twins: Monozygotic twins are formed from a single zygote, which is divided into two (or more) embryos during cell division. From a genetic point of view, they are identical, i.e. possess identical genotypes. Monozygotic twins are always of the same gender. A special group among monozygotic twins constitute unusual types: two-headed (as a rule , unviable) and "Siamese twins". The most popular case of Siamese twins, were Chang and Eng, born in 1811 in Siam (now Thailand). They lived for 63 years, were married to sisters - twins; Chang gave birth to 10 and Eng - 12 children. When Chang died due to bronchitis, Eng also died after 2 hrs. They were connected by a tissue intersection with a width of approximately 10cm from the breast up to the navel. Later, it was established, that the connecting intersection contained hepatic tissue, connecting two livers. Any surgical attempt to separate the brothers at that time would have been unsuccessful. In modern times, even the difficult joints between the twins could be easily separated. Studying monozygotic twins helps to understand what and how in a person is determined by genes and also what should is not. Dizygotic twins (Fraternal): Dizygotic twins develop if two ovums are simultaneously fertilized by two spermatozoids. Naturally, dizygotic twins possess different genotypes. They are similar between themselves as brothers and sisters and nothing more than that since they possess approximately 50% identical genes. The general birth rate of twins is about 1% and about 1/3 of them turn out to be monozygotic twins. It is known that the number of births of monozygotic twins is the same in various populations while the number of dizygotic twins significantly differs. For example, in the USA, dizygotic twins are born more often among members of the Negro race than amongst the members of Caucasian races. In Europe, the occurrence rate of dizygotic twins is 8 per 1000 births. However, the birth rate of dizygotic twins happens to be more in particular populations. The lowest birth rate of twins is characteristic to Mongoloid populations, especially in Japan. It is supposed that multiple pregnancies are caused generically. However, it is justified only for dizygotic twins. Factors influencing the birth rate of twins is studied arely now-a-days. Data exists which indicates that the probability of the birth of dizygotic twins increases with the increase in the age of the mother and how many deliveries she's had. The influence of the mother's age is explained, probably, by the increased level of gonadotropin, which leads to a higher-rate of poly-ovulation. Data also exists about the decrease in the birth rate of twins in almost all industrial countries. It is noticed that the frequency of congenital deformities in twins, as a rule, is higher than in the case of single births.
