Henry Lamb

Longtime exclusive WND columnist, constitutionalist and defender of U.S. sovereignty Henry Lamb passed away earlier today after facing several health challenges over the last few months. He was 74.

Lamb was a tireless defender of U.S. sovereignty and expert in the United Nations and moves toward global governance. His 2008 book is titled, “The Rise of Global Governance.”

Suffering from respiratory and circulatory problems, Lamb spent time in the intensive care unit in November, fought his way back and returned to writing his weekly column by the 1st of the year. His last WND column, “Money in politics? Framers had the solution,” was published May 4.

“Henry Lamb was a stalwart champion of constitutional values and national sovereignty,” stated WND commentary editor Ron Strom. “He educated countless Americans about globalist schemes and threats to personal property rights. Henry was inspirational for both his fortitude and his graciousness.”

Lamb was the founding chairman of Sovereignty International and the founding CEO of the Environmental Conservation Organization, as well as founder of Freedom21 Inc. His weekend column has appeared in WND since 1999.

Lamb attended United Nations meetings around the world, was a frequent speaker at conferences and workshops across the country, and was a regular guest on dozens of talk-radio programs. He has provided testimony for the U.S. Congress, as well as state legislatures, and served as a consultant on U.N. affairs to Fox News. He also served on various boards and committees of organizations that promote environmental stewardship, private property rights and constitutional values.

Henry attended Manatee Junior College in Bradenton, Fla.; Stetson University in DeLand, Fla.; and did his graduate work at the University of North Carolina.

Lamb argued compellingly for repealing the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, which changed the way U.S. senators were chosen, and lent his support to efforts to do just that.

These testimonials were recorded prior to his death:

“Few people understand the mechanics and implications of global governance as intimately as Henry Lamb. He has attended dozens of United Nations meetings and studied hundreds of U.N. documents. His writings offer vital information that every American should know.”

– Phyllis Schlafly, president, Eagle Forum

“Without question, Henry Lamb is the foremost expert in the nation on the subject of the U.N.’s drive for global governance and its blueprint called Agenda 21. In the mid-1990s, his articles first taught me of the dangers we faced. Most of what Henry warned about then is now taking place.”

– Tom DeWeese, president, American Policy Center

“Henry Lamb is the best there is when it comes to national sovereignty, phony environmentalism, and global governance. Brilliant at shredding the disguises of the left and exposing hidden agendas, he is a ‘must read’ for those who want to understand the problems our country faces today. I can only think of a handful of people who have the full picture and can explain it well – Henry Lamb is one of them. To read Henry Lamb, is to read one of the Masters.”

– Arizona State Sen. Karen Johnson

Canada Free Press’ Judi McLeod wrote today:

“One of a kind Tennessean Henry Lamb held a lifelong dedication to the American Constitution, and did more to warn average people about the destructive encroachment of the United Nations on human society than any other source.

“His columns on the U.N.’s Agenda 21, which appeared on CFP, WorldNetDaily and elsewhere, were classics. The results of Lamb’s long-ago dire warnings on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea … sadly passed through the warning stage and are now about to become ratified and signed as airtight U.N. documents.”

Lamb’s resolve got the attention of progressive media “watchdog” organizations. The organization Media Matters took Lamb to task in 2010 after Glenn Beck cited his work on Fox News Channel:

“Beck plucked [Lamb’s] global governance research from the right-wing, birther-obsessed WND. (Then again, perhaps Beck was merely flattered by the opening of Lamb’s column: ‘Hooray for Glenn Beck! Right out there in front of God and everybody, he talks about global governance as a real and present danger.’)

“In addition to the ‘global governance’ obsession, Beck and Lamb share other interests: hatred for Democrats in general and President Obama in particular, an obsession with Woodrow Wilson, and a propensity for finding communists and Marxists under every rock.”

Lamb is survived by his wife, Irene, five children and eight grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Sovereignty International.
