Dead Senator Ted Stevens Never Honored By United States- No Flags Flown At Half Staff In His Memory
I am in charge of flag detail at a federal building in California. We receive numerous orders each year to lower the United States flag to half staff in rememberance and in honor of fallen federal service employees or for significant members of U.S. History. For example, we lowered the flag to half staff in memory of the civil rights activist Dorothy Height when she passed this year. We lowered for Ted Kennedy when he passed. We lowered it when Obama was elected...no wait...wasn't supposed to say that.

Anyway! Just kidding. But seriously, when Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens was killed August 9th in a plane crash, the United States government NEVER ordered flags to be flown at half staff in his memory. This is hard to believe considering that he was the longest serving Senator to ever serve Alaska - over 40 years. He served in the public sector for over 50.

"Stevens served for six decades in the American public sector, beginning with his service in World War II. In the 1950s, he held senior positions in the Eisenhower Interior Department. He played key roles in legislation that shaped Alaska's economic and social development, including the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Authorization Act, the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. He was also known for his sponsorship of the Amateur Sports Act of 1978, which resulted in the establishment of the United States Olympic Committee."

Now, I understand Stevens was under investigation for misconduct and was actually found guilty of some charges. However, he was later cleared of all charges and apologies were issued saying the charges against him had been illegit. I can say for sure that Senator Ted Kennedy had FAR more claims against him with FAR more suspicions and allegations that Ted Stevens ever had. And Kennedy was still honored and remembered.

So...why wasn't Stevens? The reports that he was murdered by BP or the feds might have something to do with this. But...who knows? Right?

Very interesting, his passing did seem to pass through the MSM very quickly. We got lots of Teddy and lots of Byrd but no Stevens whatsoever. Considering the length of time he served, that is very peculiar.

I suspect there are a lot of very frightened senators and representatives right now. Keep your mouth shut, your mind right and you may survive. Rock the boat and you may have a tragic accident.

That IS strange OP.

Uncle Ted's body was flown from Anchorage to D.C. today. I'll ask my fellow Alaskans in D.C. if any flags will be lowered.

Doubly strange is why Sarah Palin was chewing gum, tweeting, and rolling her eyes at Ted's funeral.

Weird stuff.

Thanks OP

The fact is the Illuminati have been trying to kill him for some time.

We should revisit that airplane accident of his family back in the '70s in the same month also in Alaska.

A.Jones, P.Planet blog had something about the TPTB trying to off him for a long time.

Doesn't make much sense, BP has donated a library in his name to the Univ. of Alaska.

In the final analysis, he royally pissed the TPTB off, to
1. cause the crash (again)
2. have zero tribute to a long public servant

Check out Prison P. blog, the answer might be their.

Thanks, OP. His death did disappear from MSM rather fast while we were "treated" to all kinds of crap when Teddy the sellout died. Heck, they even rallied behind healthcare "in his honor".

I read that he was going to find out if they were using HAARP to create evil things as he was upset over a death of a friend that was murdered and thought HAARP had something to do with it. It does seem weird though that they would not have done the same for him as others that have passed, now doesnt it?

Well, it has been the norm. Why the sudden change? Stevens was a well known politician. They tend to view themselves as very, very important (as in, WAY overblown senses of ego) and when one of their own dies it's all we see/hear about on MSM 24/7 until the day after the funeral. Stevens? Nada. Very suspicious.

Reports were released today of Senator Ted Steven's crash and pictures from the site were shown. This looks VERY strange. There are no breaks in the plane, no debris, nothing to indicate a crash that could kill someone! It looks like a rough landing at most. Now my suspicions are ever MORE hightened!

And your point is??? Maybe you all should work at a federal building to realize how things work with flag lowerings for dignitaries and icons. It doesn't matter if they're current senators or not. It doesn't matter if they were "acused" or "aquitted" or what. I've had to lower the flag for all kinds of people in all kinds of offices and situations.

He should have, by custom, had a flag lowering service in his honor. That's just the way it is...if you don't like it, write your senator...before he's killed in a "plane crash".
