Notice

I am not shutting down Lighthouse Journal, but need to turn more attention elsewhere. Most of the posts will be at Old Glory Gunsmith Shoppe. Blogger is more receptive to the needs of blogs and bloggers, so that is the major reason. I am not moving this bog again, so it will remain with dwindled new postings.

Thanks so much for your readership, I hope you will find my other blog as interesting and informative. Since I love to write about history, and feel obligated to write about unconstitutional acts committed by government – they will appear at OGG Shoppe.

This was my first blog and has been running since 1999. It makes it harder to let go for that reason and the many friends I made along the way. Time to set it aside, out of the limelight. I am not sure if I made a difference in providing folks information and tidbits that may have awakened some and reinforced any fervor of We the People making any change to where we are back on the course of a constitutional republic. Hopefully I did.

Quotations From Masters of Hypocrisy

Anyone who is against the Obama policies, domestic and foreign, and think his administration is highly corrupted is a racist. Anyone who believes that homosexuality is: (1) a sin, (2) unnatural, (3) just plain disgusting; and do not want their children around the morally corrupted individuals are homophobic. Anyone who can see and know the truth about Islamic Jihadism, recognize the jihadist hatred and violence doctrine, see that they cry for tolerance and dish out intolerance; who is infiltrating the western world not to assimilate but to subjugate, and whose agenda is world domination with a world government of theocracy under Sharia Law is Islamophobic. The following statements have been made by the same people who constantly bring racism and intolerance to the forefront of conversation and falsely accuse others.

Hillary for President? Think About It

Hillary Rodham Clinton was on the legal team that brought down Richard M. Nixon, but unlike her husband, he chose to resign instead of impeachment hearings. It was all over a cover-up and alleged targeting political opponents with the powers of the IRS. According to a poll, she leads at 61% for Democrat candidate of 2016. Frightening. She has been involved with a myriad of scandals across the span of her political (and legal) career on the coattails of her corrupt husband. She has taken a stand on her own, of course, as senator and then Secretary of State – but nothing to brag about there, except an obscure socialist book entitled It Takes a Village.

Core of the Tea Party: What It Represents and What You Should Expect From YOUR Government

Listening to pundits and politicians, progressive that is, and reading commentary of fellow Americans who believe the media propaganda that the Tea Party movement is a racist and violent movement against government. In the case of the latter statement, that is in truth – Tea Party patriots are against any other government except that which the founders created by framing the Constitution of the United States as a constitutional republic based upon written law in those articles and amendments.

The Tea Party was organized to ensure that there is a return to that which was founded and worked so well in making America great and something its people can be proud of, but have failed for various reasons to keep it – as Benjamin Franklin pessimistically stated. So this is a type of follow-up of the last article, this time standing up to the progressive socialists and those who listen to them, whether they be pundits, politicians, or politically biased media …

Mark Alexander’s “You MIght Be a LIberal” (“Progressive”) List

Winston Churchill understood, like later Margaret Thatcher preached about socialism and Marxism:

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. … Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy.

Churchill didn’t trust Stalin for he knew the only reason why he joined the Allies instead of the Axis is because Hitler reneged upon the treaty between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union to carve up Europe between them.

What It Will Take To See True Reformation?

Save the Republic Several times I have pointed out that if the People want to reform government and return to constitutional law, society needs to reform itself first.
Jeff Jacoby wrote in How Unborn Babies Become ‘Clinical Waste’ , this revelation comes from The Telegraph in UK, but it certainly applies here in the US who have adopted socialist statism over what used to be the best system of government ever in human history …

“The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found. Ten [National Health Service] trusts have admitted burning fetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat. . . . At least 15,500 fetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s ‘Dispatches’ discovered.”
At Addenbrooke’s, a hospital in Cambridge, England, the fetuses from 797 miscarriages and abortions were burned in a facility designed to generate electricity and heat. …

From a strictly utilitarian point of view, why not? Not only did the hospital save £18.50 per cremation, it helped cut energy costs as well. It doesn’t make any difference to the fetus how it’s disposed of. Why should it make a difference to us? The answer used to be self-evident: Human beings are more than mere flesh, more than just one organism among all other organisms. Death doesn’t transform us into “clinical waste,” suitable for recycling or fueling an industrial heating system. …
But we live a dehumanizing age. Our culture makes it easy to scoff at the quaint notion that in every human being is a spark of something divine. … The same influential thinker argues that there is nothing inherently wrong with breeding children in order to harvest their organs, or with permitting disabled infants to be killed for up to a month after birth. Anything can be rationalized, including the money-saving convenience of heating hospitals with dead fetuses. Our humaneness is rarely more than a thin veneer, and it takes less effort than most of us realize to peel it off, releasing the barbarism beneath.

Reflections on a Cold Spring Morning

reflections_dianapru-1997When it is found that liberties have fallen into the dust bin of history in the United States, those that notice or once experienced those liberties will ask: What happened? Someone who will remember or know what liberties they once had will say …

It is because generations slowly became apathetic to growing corruption in all levels of government.

State of Our Union: Fiscal Cliff Bill Passes Congress for Obama's Signature - and Income Tax Still in EffectIt is because socialism was considered a better and “fair” system, not seeking the truth and relying upon the entity that is supposed to be the eyes and ears of the People – the corporate media.
