Flags Flying at Half Mast in MB

The President of the United States has ordered public facilities and grounds to fly the U.S. flag at half mast out of respect for the victims of the "senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 20..."

Manhattan Beach City Manager David Carmany said city offices are flying the U.S. flag at half mast per President Barack Obama's proclamation today.



As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 20, 2012, in Aurora, Colorado, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, July 25, 2012. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twentieth day of July, in the year of our Lord two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh.

Did somebody actually lower the United States flag at the request of the enemy of the Constitution? Everyone, read the United States Constitution where it states that someone who did not qualify could not be the President of United States: "if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, ...." Amendment 20, Section 3. Obama never became President.

Why aren't we flying the flags at half mast for all the soldiers dying at war until the war is over and our troops are home?
