You will be seeing less articles here at the Lighthouse because I will be phasing it out. After Thanksgiving there will not be any new posts, which happens to be my birthday that occurs on Thanksgiving Day every seven years.
If anyone seriously wishes to take over, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be concentrating my efforts in other areas to include Old Glory Gunsmith Shoppe and Veritas et Theologium – and just living what life I have left. I will continue the fight to Save Our Republic and Constitution – but in a different avenue and giving more time for other things in my life.
I highly suggest that as an alternative to Old Glory Lighthouse, you visit Maggie’s Notebook, where you can keep up-to-date on the latest in the fight against unconstitutional government and Saving Our Republic – true reformation to what the Founders intended.
To the regular readers and contributors, I can only say something that Bob Hope phrased … Thanks For The Memory.

In the third quarter the economy allegedly grew 3.6% while government continues to grow.
Even a liberal professor is sounding the alarm, speaking to Congress. If you think this growth has only occurred during Obama’s reign, think again. The IRS has become a fourth branch, an added entity to the constitution’s established three branches intended to oversight each other. The EPA has even written its own regulations bypassing Congress, and we all have heard of the power that the NSA has under the direction of the executive branch – despite President Obama continually stating he was “unaware”. If so, then this means that his appointed czars of government’s federal agencies and departments are going rogue. We the People still await an actual oversight committee to achieve the information about the Benghazi attack more than a year ago that cost American lives with the corporate-government controlled media not printing outrage of this oversight of an oversight.
Meanwhile, Obama is purging the military, and viewing Obama’s record this is not good news to liberty or the integrity of the US military’s future missions. The real connection is who Obama is replacing in the ranks of top military officials whose records are long and honorable. Maggie’s Notebook has a long list of fired commanders of the US Armed Forces. Many were forced into retirement, their benefits questionable.
Obama is conceding to the enemies of the free world – the Iranian capulation being one of the major disasters in Obama’s long record of disasters in foreign affairs accompanied by other progressives’ behavior.
Despite numerous complaints and travesties of the IRS, it still not only exists, the sound of boots of tyranny are being heard. Obamacare has been a lie from its inception, yet Congress passed it [without knowing exactly was in it], and the Supreme Court did not perform their constitutional oath by declaring it unconstitutional.
Here is a short story of a man diagnosed with cancer, his insurance company cancelled him and reveals how Obamacare ditched him and the IRS is grilling/punishing him for going public against how badly Obamacare works.
FrontPage Mag tells the story behind the story HERE.
Meanwhile, the IRS displays its unconstitutional power and authority by transgressing against the First Amendment.
Remember how Detroit is turning into a crumbling city? Well, the feds are supposed to provide $24.2 million to help a city who caused its own demise via corruption and wasteful spending steered by a 50-year progressive-liberal government. That grant funding is over and beyond what the feds and taxpayers of the state of Michigan have shelled out recently.
Another case involving Obamacare is in the Supreme Court – again.
This year my birthday falls on Thanksgiving Day, November 28th.
In celebration and for the seasonal holiday from November 28th to December 4th 2013 “American In Turkey” will be reduced from $2.99 list price to $0.99!
You do not have to own a Kindle [although they are great to have with a large library you can carry with you everywhere you go], because Amazon offers a chance to download a Kindle Reader for free and read books on your PC – laptop, notebook or all-in-one.
So take advantage of the reduced price and purchase my book about the time I spent in Turkey at NATO HQ LSE, Izmir and an interesting history and background and events that occurred in the 1980s when I spent 4.5 years of my military career. There are photos to make it more interesting I took with my Canon 35mm ["old school"] camera. I estimate I shot at least 1500 photos during my stay there in Izmir and visits to historical places like Ephesus, Pergamum, the site of Homer’s Troy, Istanbul, Mersin [where Saint Nicholas was born], Tara (or Taurus) [where Saint Paul was born], and site of the oldest village archaeological site in human history – 35,000 years ago.
Thanks ahead of time for purchasing and reading my book.
In the future: “History of the US 4th Cavalry” – a digital reprint of a hard copy book registered with the Library of Congress. [Will be published at Book Nook, a Barnes & Noble digital book site].
Charlie Rangel is a despicable progressive who constantly was against everything Bush II did and now cannot understand why the Republicans in Congress are upset over the “nuclear option” of Senator Harry Reid – and being the progressive he is, suggests that constitutional law be further reduced …
I have conceded that insanity has infiltrated our educational system. Case in point is Verenice Gutierrez, principal at Harvey Scott, K-8 school whose progressive politically correct nonsense was revealed in an interview with the Portland Tribune. In that interview she provided a racist example of the American peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Huffington Post, the progressive mouthpiece in cyberspace, stated that the school principal ties sandwich to white privilege.
I have been to the jungles so thick with hard woods and vines our machetes became nicked from trying to cut it through. Tolerating swarms of mosquitoes, wading through putrid swamp waters as poisonous snakes swam by. Sleeping in humid jungle so thick that even in daylight the light was colored dark green; the night so dark and ominous with every creature found in nightmares coming out to feed. The humidity like a smothering blanket that quickly turned steel to rust.
If you want to hear hypocrisy and progressive hype, check out Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s statement about citizens and the Tea Party movement for a constitutional republic as reported by an attendee at a conference …
McConnell said the Tea Party was ‘nothing but a bunch of bullies. And he said ‘you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and that’s what we’re going to do.
At his website, Senator McConnell, a member of the GOP, has a slogan that claims [Google listing]: “A proven conservative leader for Kentucky”. He has joined the Democrats in their crusade to stamp out [pun unintentional] of the Tea Party movement, even Salon, traditional leaning towards progressives, says he is the “biggest loser”. At the same time, he complains about the Democrats abolishing filibusters in the Senate for presidential nominees, except to the Supreme Court. Dubbed the “nuclear option” – Senator Harry Reid spearheaded that move which means that his party only requires 51 votes to confirm future picks by Obama. It is quite evident how badly this president has chosen, with a myriad of scandals revealed [and congressional committees doing nothing] as well as plain incompetence.
In the recent conference, McConnell named Senators Mike Lee [R-UT] and Ted Cruz [R-TX] as Tea Party conservatives and that he views as problematic.
Another source stated that denies that anything was said about Cruz, Lee or the Tea Party; but admitted there was some “discussion” about it. An aide stated something different in an email to Breitbart News. A request for a transcript or recording was refused when Breitbart News requested it and the office of McConnell refuses to comment.
McConnell is a proven RINO – not a “proven conservative leader”.
