Mandeville, LA - One of the casualties of the recently concluded "federal" elections was the discussion of monetary policy, this was NOT a Thomas Jefferson moment. That the existence of the Fed, the Central Bank, now is not questioned by anyone lest they become labeled as radicals or extremists (see Ron Paul), tells us a lot about our sinking ship of state.….Continue

Let me get to Senator Jim DeMint. Now, I am proud to say that last week on this show I did a whole hour here on the GIVE Act, the Generational Investment and Volunteerism Enterprise, I think it’s called, the GIVE Act. This is the act that will create the Obamabot Army and pay them to volunteer. I mean, it’s insidious, ladies and gentlemen. It is also the act that has a passage in it where a blue-ribbon, ACORN-adorned board will be formed to de….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Scott Galupo at American Conservative Mag.com has a peculiar piece on their site titled "Government ‘Revel’-ing in Private-Sector Investment". In the post Galupo argues that it is "moral" for government to invest OPM in their pet projetcs from time to time: President Obama is not a closet socialist or cunningly patient radical. What he is—or what he fancies himself—is a neo-Whig. The Henry Clay of the 21st century. He never tires of pointing out that t….Continue
If you are wondering just what State Of The Union messages USED to look or sound like, here is a perfectly great example of one from 1885 and President Grover Cleveland….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Written by Mike Church - A recent temper tantrum made its way onto the editorial pages of the NY Times by Louis Michael Seidman, a man claiming to be a professor of Constitutional Law at Georgetown University titled "Let's Give Up on the Constitution". What Lincoln Killed Preview: President Jefferson Approves of the Northern States Seceding In this dystopian view of the founding of our current union turned mobocracy, Seidman points to Americans' alleged devoti….Continue
"Can a State which is not a State and not recognized as such by Congress, perform the supreme duty of ratifying an amendment to the fundamental law?" Mandeville, LA - The Christian Science Monitor is all a flutter with their faux facts presented as Constitutional bedrock in "If your side lost the election, time to secede from the Union?" by Mark Guarino. Guarino has swallowed the entire bottle of "indivisible union blue pills" in his parsimonious denunciation of the recent se….Continue
Mandeville, LA - The Founding Fathers Presidential mistake. "My Dear Sir, I am free to acknowledge that [the President's] Powers are full great, and greater than I was disposed to make them. Nor do I believe they would have been so great had not many of the members cast their eyes towards General Washington as President" - Pierce Butler Americans have recently declared the election of 2012 for the Presidency the"most important election of our lifetimes" and that is just the h….Continue
Mandeville, LA - There has been ample discussion the past 24 hours as there has been since the dawn of the "Religious Right" in the late 1970's over the purported "Faith Based Constitution" and "Christian Nation" that "HE" erected on these shores. I am guilty of this hyperbole and historic distortion my self, recorded in one passage of "The Road To Independence". Full disclosure, I am a practicing Catholic, a believer of Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ and a minute by minut….Continue
Mandeville, LA - This is the 3rd chapetr of John Taylor's work 'An Inquiry into the Principles and Policy of the Government of the United States" written chiefly as a response to John Adams' "Defence of the Constitutions of The United States". This chapter lays out Taylor's belief that no system of government that ever stray from [r]epublican forms can remain free of corruption. You can listen to Taylor's view of this work and why it was necessary in my audio "Docudromedy" -….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Noah Millman posts at the American Conservative Magazine in part: "If the secessionist cause is to be justified in the Declaration’s terms, it must make one of two claims. Either there are no “political bands” of note to dissolve – the Union is a mere compact among sovereign entities, that any party may depart from at will. Or, if those bands are granted to exist, the election of Abraham Lincoln, whose party was committed to preventing the spread of sl….Continue
Monday,June 9, 1788. Mandeville, LA - Perhaps instead of trading barbs in the fashion of "well Bush did it" followed by "yeah but Obama has doubled down on it...and Karl Rove s--ks anyways!" it would be more productive to ask WHY we have an Executive to start with and all his attendant agencies which bequeath these tyrannical powers? During the debates over ratification in the VA Convention, Patrick Henry looked into that most prescient of crystal balls that must have been ….Continue

Mandeville, LA -If you have ever wondered which of the Founders who attended the Federal Convention of 1787 actually wrote the text, using a quill pen, of the Constitution, including the beautiful "We The People" script, wonder no more. In this letter, written at the fever pitched height of the Hartford Convention/Secession Crisis of 1814, Morris settles the mystery once and for all. Morris had attended the convention representing PA although he was from New York and spent the….Continue
Mandeville, LA - The Question on a lot of people's minds is actually one that our revisionist history pretends to answer with impunity: Is secession legal? This book, written 7 years before the first ramblings of "indivisibility" would be heard from Jackson, along with the works of Taylor & St George's Tucker, the Of Presidencies of Jefferson and Madison answer unequivocally "yes!" As Rawle puts it herein... "It depends on the state itself to retain or abolish the principl….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Little is known about the evolution of the KY & VA Resolutions of 1798, mainly because the Sedition Act was still in effect and Jefferson, Madison and Taylor did not want to risk arrest for making their plans public. Any American who wants a precise snapshot of what Thomas Jefferson (with an assist from John Taylor of Caroline) thought the Constitution's power was and where it came from will find this document definitive. &nbs….Continue
Mandeville, LA - New listeners to my radio show are always asking the same questions about the Most Hallowed Second Amendment: that Ted Nugent and the NRA, traveling in their WAYBAC machine witnessed Thomas Jefferson applying ink dry powder to the Constitution's second Amendment. Nugent asked: "So, this will cover every gun, in every city, state, county & federal land, forever until eternity, right?" Jefferson, awed by Nugent's stature and LaPierre's John marshal like gaze….Continue
