Colorado U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, may soon be sending out this video as part of the legislative campaign he has helped spearhead focused on guarding United States’ sovereignty. The video features Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy speaking at the “How to Take Back America” conference in St. Louis this weekend. Gaffney led two workshop sessions — one on “How to defeat attacks on sovereignty by U.N. treaties and North American Union” and one on “How to understand Islam.”
As the Colorado Independent reported in July, Lamborn and Reps Scott Garrett, R-N.J., and Thaddeus McCotter, R-Mich., launched a House caucus aimed at defending the nation against international treaties they see as threats to American rights and national interests. Lamborn’s so-called sovereignty movement has gained surprising momentum.
Here’s how the movement looked on the ground in St Louis.
At his first workshop, Gaffney took a question on the North American Union and stated that it “wasn’t black helicopter stuff.” Nevertheless, the people behind the this attack on sovereignty, Gaffney said, might miss their goal of uniting the United States, Mexico and Canada by 2010.
