Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Now we have this revelation today.  Actually, this is two days ago.  The National Security Agency now has the ability -- folks, I just want you to think about this for just a moment.  Just ponder this.  Just pretend for a moment that you’re reading this in a Tom Clancy novel, that it’s not actually happening.  It’s happening in the world of fiction, in other words.  You’re reading it in a C….Continue

FREE Chapter Preview - Patrick Henry-American Statesman, The Book

Topics: , ,

Who is Patrick Henry? Most Americans recognize Patrick Henry as “The Orator” who delivered the “give me liberty or give me death” speech which thus delivered the United States a free and independent nation. This view of Henry’s life is rather like believing that George Washington’s signature achievement was chopping down a cherry tree.….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript –"If we wanted to look for a parallel with Hitler -- and frankly, I’m sick and tired of this Reductio ad Hitlerum.  We seem to be keen on finding the Hitler de jure whenever there’s a crisis, whether it’s Slobodan Milosevic or Saddam Hussein or Muammar Gaddafi or Bashar al-Assad.  The Hitler parallel is invoked.  In the case of Ukraine, we actually have a fairly decent parallel with the boys from western Ukraine who have been….Continue

Thomas Jefferson To Us: Sorry, We Blew It But Here's Some Pointers, Scuttle the SCOTUS

Mandeville, LA - On Tuesday's SiriusXM radio show I shared this letter with commentary. Jefferson's frame of mind here runs contrary to the "riding off into the sunset, having preserved liberty and prosperity for his countrymen" narrative. Monticello, March 4, 1823 Dear Sir, —I delayed some time the acknowledgment of your welcome letter of December 10th on the common lazy principle of never doing to-day what we can put off to to-morrow, until it became doubtful whether a let….Continue

How The Non-Profits Expand Government by Shooting Lame Ducks

Topics: , ,

Mandeville, LA- [r]epublican (and listener to the Mike Church Show) Sandi discovers first hand what Mike speaks of when he decries the "non-profits" as "being in on it". The "It" being the revolving door of money that flows to non-profits via Mordor's tax shelter policies (tax codes) that is then used to devise new ways to "reform" or "improve", heck even "expand" the already menacing Leviathan. (editor's note, this piece was originally posted on 27 November, 2012) In this cas….Continue

Jan Brewer Veto-Did This Change The Laws In His Kingdom?

Topics:

Mandeville, LA  - In the aftermath of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer's veto of SB 1062 An Act for Extending Religious Freedom I offer the following candid observations. Rod Dreher says the culture/political and propaganda war for SSM is over and the Traditional side has lost, get over it. Isn't that a bit like Simon Peter saying the Romans & Pharisees beat Jesus, get over it? You don't "get over" canon or dogma. The traditionalist has been told to "get over it" for over 10….Continue

The Parable of Four Farmers Explains What A State Is For republicans

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

"This is another interesting point of discussion when we talk about this. Exactly what is a State? Is a State a geographical entity? Well, you could say that you call the State of Georgia, for example, Georgia because of the border it has with Tennessee and South Carolina and Alabama and Florida, which are very well-defined and well-known, but does that make it a State or is that just a boundary where that State ends and the next State begins?" ….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – [Mike, mocking] “What’s so big about the big, bad central government?  There are a lot of things bad about it.  One of the things it does is it desensitizes the citizen.  It deprives the citizen of the responsibility of self-government.  No longer does the citizen feel as though he is the citizen soldier who is responsible for he and his.  Now the citizen is made to believe that the State is responsible for he and his.  He….Continue

They talked about this. There was no audience out there. I would go to campuses, when I first went into Congress, and I would get 20 or 30 people come out and maybe convert one or two." ….Continue

The Citizen Solider, replaced by the standing army Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The standing army is open tyranny, Duane, and you’re not going to get very many conservatives to admit that the standing army is a threat to their way of life and to their liberty.  We think that controlling and dominating and acting in a domineering fashion across the entire known universe is how the freest and greatest countries in the history of Earth are supposed to act.  Yea….Continue

Liberty Exists Without The Government's Permission

I just stop sometimes, I just marvel, seriously marvel at what liberty has created on these shores. We have things that no civilization in the history of Earth, hell, in the known universe, going all the way back to the cantina bar on Tatooine, or Dantooine. No one has had access to the stuff that Americans take for granted. And all you have to do is go to a birthday party to see it on display. You have every manner of food that you could imagine. Every manner of it. You….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Your care, the care of your life, your freedom to negotiate a deal that might bankrupt you, true, but would save your life, your freedom to do that isn’t worth the piece of paper that you would sign it away for in the eyes of those people that live inside that 10-mile square.

I will concede, and I will hope that the U.S.’s involvement in the Middle East come to a grinding halt as it applies to our financing of this regime or that regime, and our funding of keeping the Straits of Hormuz open, and the use of our Navy to ensure that the Saudi sheikhs continue to be able to purchase tin-plated or nickel-plated Audi A6s and new palaces to build around. But I think it’s wrong. I think it’s long overdue that we turn our….Continue

And the only reason I’m able to drive this truck around the country is because of our government and how wonderf….Continue

Was Secession A Constitutional Right? 1868 Book Concluded It Was. "In order to show that the Constitution is not a compact between the States, the position is assumed, that it is not a compact at all. If it be a compact, say they, then the States had a right to secede. But it is not a compact; and hence secession is treason and rebellion. The great fundamental questions, then, on which the whole controversy hinges are, first, Is the Constitution a compact? and, secondly, Is it a compact between the States?"
