Shouldn’t an army base be the last place where a terrorist should be able to shoot at people uninterrupted for 10 minutes? After all, an army base is filled with soldiers who carry guns, right? Unfortunately, that is not the case. Beginning in March 1993, under the Clinton administration, the army forbids military personnel from carrying their own personal firearms and mandates that “a credible and specific threat against [Department of the Army] personnel [exist] in that region” before military personnel “may be authorized to carry firearms for personal protection.”

I am dumbstruck by this John Lott article.

Remember Steven Bierfeldt, the Campaign for Liberty guy who was detained and grilled by the TSA in St. Louis because he was carrying $4700 cash?  Here’s the story, in case you’ve forgotten.

Bierfeldt subsequently filed a law suit against TSA that, amazingly enough, has had a positive result.  St. Louis Today is reporting that “the incident has yielded revised rules requiring TSA agents to stick to matters related to flight security rather than policing airports for other crimes.”

What?  The airport guys don’t have official permission to torment and harrass us about anything they choose?  They actually have been told to recognize that the Constitution limits their actions?  Who’d have ever thunk?

Lest you think I’ve completely lost my skepticism, it still remains to be seen whether they’ll actually follow the new policy or not.

You can read Bierfeldt’s press release on Huffpo.

What could possibly be wrong with Obama signing the United Nations Climate Change Treaty in December in Copenhagen? According to Lord Christopher Monckton in this video, it will create a world government and give away our sovereignty. Following this 4-minute excerpt is the explanation given in the description on Youtube.

Is anybody listening?

On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton gave a presentation in St. Paul, MN on the subject of global warming. In this 4-minute excerpt from his speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty that is scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.

A draft of the treaty can be read here:…

Page 18: Section 38 of the “Share vision for long-term cooperation action plan” contains the text for forming the new government.

Page 40: Section 46 Subsection H of the “Objectives, scope, and guiding principles” contains the text for enforcement and establishment of the rule of law.

There has been considerable debate raised about Monckton’s conclusion that the Copenhagen Treaty would cede US sovereignty. His comments appear to be based upon his interpretation of the The Supremacy Clause in the US Constitution (Article VI, paragraph 2). This clause establishes the Constitution, Federal Statutes, and U.S. TREATIES as the supreme law of the land. Concerns have been raised in the past that a particularly ambitious treaty may supersede the US Constitution. In the 1950s, a constitutional amendment, known as the Bricker Amendment, was proposed in response to such fears, but it failed to pass. You can read more about the Bricker Amendment in a 1953 Time Magazine article:…,9171,806676-1,00.html

Update 10/20: This link is no longer valid. Try this instead:,9171,806676,00.html

If that doesn’t work, from the error page try searching Time’s archives for Bricker Amendment. If that doesn’t work, they’re trying to re-write history. [H/T to Rebecca.]

Lord Monckton served as a policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He has repeatedly challenged Al Gore to a debate to which Gore has refused. Monckton sued to stop Gore’s film “An Inconvenient Truth” from being shown in British schools due to its inaccuracies. The judge found in-favor of Monckton, ordering 9 serious errors in the film to be corrected. Lord Monckton travels internationally in an attempt to educating the public about the myth of global warming.

You really have to watch this video. Comedian Tim Hawkins takes that catchy tune, The Candyman Can, from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and applies new lyrics. It’s a day brightener!

This bill has now been passed by the House and the Senate, only awaiting final tweaks and the President’s signature. I posted on this before, but thought I’d give space to a post by Lighthouse Trails, without further comment from me.

GLSEN and the Hitler Youth

Hella and I were the only children at our school who were not members of the Hitler Youth organization. They were nothing but a uniformed bunch of young robots proudly wearing their drab outfits and swastikas and mouthing “Heil Hitler” enthusiastically wherever they went…. It was difficult for me as a child to understand Hitler, this demagogue whose picture was everywhere–in our classroom, on street banners, and, later, even defiling church altars. Each morning my teacher, Fraulein (Miss) Kinzel, would pray toward the picture of Hitler. Her words still ring in my ears: “Dear God, protect our dear leader. Make him strong. Let us all learn to love him. May he have many years of glorious reign.” Anita Dittman, Holocaust survivor, from Trapped in Hitler’s Hell

LTRP Note:Lighthouse Trails seeks to bring light to areas of darkness for we believe the power of sin lies in its secrecy. Thus we post articles like the one below. Dr. Reisman has done much in her work to protect children against child pornography and child molestation. Her warning below coupled with the US government’s embracing of homosexuality AND mandatory community service for American youth should cause concern for every discerning person.

by Dr. Judith Reisman

H.R. 1388, “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act” (GIVE), was approved by the House, and is on the fast track to the Senate and President Obama.

Outrage over the GIVE religious and political restrictions appear to have yielded a strategic withdrawal, allowing recruits to attend church and think independent thought privately.

“The purpose of the bill is to require mandatory community service for all young people in the United States,” Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, told WND in a telephone interview.

“The mobilization of the youth to put them into community work environments that are specified in the bill raises questions about who will be teaching the youth and what is deemed appropriate community service,” he said.

Old-timers naturally recall Communist, Fascist and Nazi youth brigades as severing children from their parent’s religious traditions and beliefs.

Such American classroom indoctrination is now found in “hate” and sexual diversity training and in 3,500 nationwide Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) school clubs. Under color of a “Safe Schools Movement” battling alleged “bullying” of so-called “gay” children (K-12), some see GLSEN as a modern version of the Hitler Youth and as preparing the ground for a larger, sweeping, schoolroom Youth Brigade.

The similarities between Hitler’s National Socialist Teachers Association (NSTA) and the Rockefeller and Playboy funded National Education Association (NEA) and American Library Association (ALA) troubles some World War II elders. Like Hitler’s NSTA, our NEA also largely guides the “ideological indoctrination of teachers.” (Ronald J. Berger “Fathoming the Holocaust,” Aldine Transaction, 2002, p. 50) Moreover, NSTA, the NEA, GLSEN and the Hitler Youth all seek to sever schoolchildren from their parent’s religious and sexual training.
