Washington’s Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer – Jimmy Madison Would Not Approve

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - George Washington issued proclamations that led to Thanksgiving and the National Day of Prayer, the latter of which did not sit well with Jimmy Madison. After the Convention, Madison developed a "hands off" view of the National Government as it relates to religion. In the early days, there was no separation of religion and government. Many of Congress's meetings began and ended with prayer. During Monroe's presidency, Madison didn't think that the government should be paying Chaplain's to visit the troops, now if he had tried this just 20 years earlier, no one would have even listened to him, but by the 1790's things had already changed.

Since When Have State Constitutions Stopped the SCOTUS?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Do listeners of this show really believe that the 50 state Constitutions are really going to stop the Supreme Court of the United States from over-ruling them? The DNA case in Maryland should have ended in Maryland, instead it went all the way to the Supreme Court, where they ruled against the Maryland court. The Supreme Court should never have even heard this case, but no, the SCOTUS will over rule the state courts and the state Constitutions and not even think twice about it.

Thomas Jefferson: The Original Sneaky Leaker?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When Jefferson was Adams Vice President he attended the meetings of the US Senate every day and realized that "Hey, you guys could use some rules" so he wrote the handbook that we still use today for governing the actions of the Senate. And while all of this is going on in the run up to the Alien and Sedition acts, he knows that Adams is about to propose these acts... which no one else really knows about yet. Jefferson then writes a letter to Madison to inform him about the Alien and Sedition acts while he is Vice President (otherwise known today as a LEAK). So, this just adds to the aura of Jefferson, while he is trying to secure the life and liberty of the general population he actually LEAKS secrets from the President of the United States.

“The Power to Tax Involves the Power to Destroy”

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - McCulloch vs Maryland was a landmark decision by the Supreme Court of the United States in that it put the power to tax in the hands of the Federal Government instead of the states so when Chief Justice John Marshall said "The Power to Tax is the Power to Destroy" he was actually talking about the STATES! McCulloch vs Maryland happened at a time when the states were seen as the enemy, when they were the ones who were taxing people and the Federal Government was seen as the hero riding in on it's white horse to save everyone. It also happened at a time when there were men who were acting to STOP the states, and the Federal Government, from becoming tyrannical, men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Now the power has swung 180 degrees, as the power to tax lies, unfortunately, with the Federal Government.

Despite Man’s Best Efforts… God Still Wins.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - You've all see the helicopter pictures from the destruction the EF-5 tornado wreaked on Moore, OK. It's obvious from this that there is no man made single family dwelling that can sustain the winds of a tornado of that size. So what's next? If we can control these type of forces in a laboratory, are we going to try and start controlling them on a greater scale? Will we start trying to stop tornadoes, hurricanes, floods from forming? It seems that when Mother Nature decides she's going to strike, she does, and there's nothing we can do stop her... and we shouldn't try.

You Know the First and Second Amendments… What About the Third?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Everyone knows the First Amendment, it's taught to our youths in grade school. Everyone NOW knows the Second Amendment... whether or not they agree with it is another story. But do you know the THIRD Amendment? And the ones that follow it? Most people don't. Although we don't have scientific evidence to back this claim up, we observe many people discussing the First and Second Amendment, and very few discussing the rest. In case you were wondering, the Third Amendment deals with the quartering of troops. How many people in modern day America do you think would be OK with quartering troops? Well, if Boston is any example, it may be more than you think. For more on this, be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already!

Stuck in Traffic? You’re Being Tracked.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - "No expectation of privacy on public roads and parking places" says one cop who we can only assume has never read 1984: Surveillance State now catalogs and tracks you using cameras and license plate recognition software. Why do roads have to be public, what happened to private roads? Heck, even if we had private roads could we expect privacy along them, we can barely expect any type of privacy in our own homes or on our phone calls any more. So just remember the next time you're sitting in that traffic jam on the Interstate trying to get to work for 45 minutes, Big Brother already knows it.

“No Conservatism Without a Religious Foundation” – Russell Kirk

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Russell Kirk asked, "Can there be any robust conservatism in American life WITHOUT a religious devotion?" The answer is a resounding "No". He also wrote that a society that denies religion also lacks faith, charity, and compassion and "When a nation ignores the divine authority, it soon commits the excesses of fanatic nationalism, intoxicated with its own unchecked power, which have made the twentieth century terrible." He wrote this back in 1957, how do you think he would feel now? With everyone clamouring for one-size-fits-all solutions for everything from gun laws to abortions and America having troops in practically every country on the planet?

Happy Birthday to Timothy Pickering: Supporter of NORTHERN Secession

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Today is the birthday of one Timothy Pickering. Now, not too many people are familiar with Pickering but more people should be. Why? Because he was one of the first people to be in favor of states seceding from the Union. Oh, but not just ANY states... the NORTHERN STATES! One of the main reasons that people like Pickering (and other Northerners) wanted the North to secede was because the South was in complete control of the Federal Government up until about 1860... just imagine how American History would have turned out if the North would have been successful in seceding! So enjoy today's history lesson about Timothy Pickering and secession in today's Founders TV! And be sure and sign up for a Founders Pass to listen to the entire show!

It Is The Government’s Duty… To Tax Your Booty

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Think you can keep your booty (Websters - "a rich gain or prize") from being taxed? Maybe by going the 1099 route on your income? Nope, not gonna happen. Everywhere you go, you are taxed. Buying gas? Taxed. Buying Groceries? Taxed. Using a cell phone? Taxed. I think you get the picture. All of these items have Federal taxes on them, and where is all of this tax money going? Well, they're trying to cure society, trying to make water more clean, trying to make fossil fuels more clean... wait, no they're not. They're lining the pockets of their friends in those businesses and keeping the lobbyists employed.

Live Free or Spy Hard… Our Government Has Chosen The Latter

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The Surveillance State has now so corrupted the Surveillance State workers that the Surveillance President must now order gubbmint spooks to spy on each other lest another Edward Snowden appear. This could be interpreted to mean that Snowden was only cleared for level 3 of 6 levels of government deception and a level 4 is about to blow. So what happens when you create government agencies to spy on other government agencies? Are they trying to create more jobs? Or is it going to keep them so busy spying on each other, that they won't have the time to spy on private citizens? (Wishful thinking, I know.)

Prepare for the Extermination of the Southern Way of Life

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Are you a Neo-Confederate? Does anyone really know exactly what that means? Usually it is used in a defamatory manner, it implies that you or your ancestors are sympathetic towards slavery... but does ANYONE in their right mind want to bring slavery back? Most "neo-confederates" are people proud of their southern culture. Yes, their were some bad parts of it, but there are bad parts of every culture. But the way the word is used in such a deragotary manner, means that "they" are trying to eradicate the culture of the south.

The War of Northern Aggression Goes Ever On

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There are those in the North who want to continue fighting Lincoln's War of Aggression until every Southern, Confederate is obliterated from history. From re-naming Military installations that were named after Confederate Generals because they were part of the "slaveocracy". Well, Jefferson, Washington, and many others were also members of the so-called "slaveocracy". And let's not forget the outrage that Yankees have over Robert E Lee! Many people in the North seem to think that the Confederacy was completely comprised of evil, racist, war-mongering, genocidal maniacs and that it had to be "put down" like it was some sort of rabid dog. These people that think like this are just despicable. For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already!

What’s Wrong With Being Proud of Your Southern Heritage? Apparently Everything Now Days.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - After the "stuff" hit the fan over Rand Paul's hiring and retention of Jack Hunter, there were very few that came to his defense. Most in the "mainstream media" (and talk radio mafia) were basically calling for Jack's head for things that they didn't even know if he wrote or not, and even if he did write these things about being proud of his Southern Heritage... what's wrong with that? Should everyone who had a grand-pappy or great-grand-pappy in the War of Northern Aggression just conveniently forget about them? Write them out of their family tree? And of course Jack isn't a fan of Lincoln (neither are we), he declared war on the Southern States! Does that mean he should excuse himself from polite society? No, in fact, it means that more people need to stand up for Jack. For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you don't already have one!

Interview with Kevin Gutzman: Scalia Not The Pillar of Conservatism He Is Thought To Be

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - How did Scalia become the "strict Constitutionalist" of the Supreme Court? Is it based more on image than actual decisions? You could certainly make a case for that based on his latest decision in the Arizona case. If anything, Thomas is the more Conservative on the Supreme Court, but he doesn't keep up appearances like Scalia does. But does anyone think the Supreme Court is ever going to slow down? Are they ever going to try and scale back their own power? No, even if they had two REAL conservatives in Scalia and Thomas, they would still be greatly outnumbered, and it's probably not going to get any better.

Government Should Lead By Morality, Not By Force

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Religion should not be directly associated with politics or any political party as Rick Santorum seems to think. However, religion should be a part of politicians, and everyone else's, lives as it informs our decisions and helps us do the right thing. One person who had it right was Dr. Martin Luther King on the Mike Douglas Show discussing the Vietnam War. He believed that the Vietnam War was unjust and so costly that no one should be fighting in it and we were on the losing end of it. And that our loyalty to our country should not be measured by our ability to kill but by our ability to lead.

Fair DUI – Interview with Warren Redlich On What (Not) To Do If You Get Pulled Over

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - On today's Founders TV we were joined by special guest Warren Redlich, author of "Fair DUI: Stay Safe and Sane In A World Gone MADD". Warren is a DUI trial lawyer who has seen the DUI laws go from making sense to a stacked deck against the innocent under the name "criminal justice." One of the main reasons he wrote the book is to help people how to hand being pulled over, not just a DUI stop, but anytime they are pulled over by the police. And of course, so many of the laws have been influenced by heavy handed groups like MADD that you need to read a book like this to know what to do when you have a drink and you do get pulled over, because what few Individual Liberties you still have left you should know about.

Henry Knew Best: The Size and Growth of Government Would Make Transparency Impossible

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - During the Constitutional Convention a bunch of guys met in secret to establish a new form of government... which isn't why they were sent there in the first place. They were sent there to amend the Articles of Confederation, instead they came back with a Constitution with Washington's painting all over it. So why all the secrecy? Well, many of the states and their representatives didn't think it was a good idea, including one man by the name of Patrick Henry. And one reason he was against the Constitution was specifically because of all the secrecy. He was afraid the Federal Government would continue to meet in secret because it would continue to grow and the people meeting in secret would basically pay off the citizens to keep them in office. Oh, how right he was. For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass for more...

Why Keep Antagonizing Foreign Countries? Sign Some Treaties, Stop The Wars.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The Usual Suspects are at it again... the neocons and decepticons are ginning up more need for bombings after the attacks at the mall in Kenya. Somehow they are tying this together with Iran, which doesn't make any sense at all. And the decepticons want to keep the sanctions going in Iran, but why? They want the same things we do. Nuclear power plants to power their cities and TVs and iPhones and iPads. We are in a constant state of war posture with them, we should just stop antagonizing them, sign a peace treaty to end this "war" so that they and other countries can start producing iPhones and stop producing people who want to come over here and want to kill us.

What’s the Difference Between Ted Cruz’s Filibuster and Rand Paul’s? Complacency vs Action.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Even though Ted Cruz was standing tall at his filibuster against Obamacare, he was also standing with the majority view. His views represent nothing new and most of the rest of the Republican party. When Rand had his filibuster he was challenging the Democrats AND the Republicans, who had voted FOR most of the policies he was filibustering against (NSA, spyfare, drones, etc). Ted Cruz deserves credit for joining Paul's filibuster but there is a major difference between the two. One is complacent within his party and the other represents action in a new direction.

Gutzman on Vattel: What Is A Natural Born Citizen?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Kevin Gutzman joins us on today's Founders TV and discusses Emerich de Vattel's influence on natural born citizenship. The problem with Vattel is that most of his influence on this issue has been taken from an English translation post-Constitutional Convention that says that both parents must be citizens of the original country. But if you read the original French, it's just not clear. Kevin explains this in greater detail as it pertains to current politicians such as Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and of course, President Obama.

We Want Regime Change! When Do We Want It? When Obama Says So!

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Why do the American sheeple want a regime change in Syria? The answer is pretty simple: The Obama Propaganda Machine. What is a regime? Is it not a stable leadership? Why would you want to disrupt a stable leadership, even if the person in charge is a King? There are plenty of Kings all over the world that we are not trying to kick off their thrones. So why Syria? Because they used chemical weapons on their citizens? Well, even if there was a chemical "attack" it was almost certainly not by the military. So what's going on here folks? Propaganda and double speak.

Ben Franklin and a Free Press: You Can’t Please All of the People All of the Time

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Back in the time that Ben Franklin started publishing there weren't newspapers as we think of them, there were periodicals, but you couldn't really rely on them for news. So Franklin's idea was to publish these newspapers every day, since there's news every day! And one way to support this venture was to take on ads (probably one of the first persons to ever do this). When Franklin began taking ads he began receiving nasty letters about why he turned down some ads, so in typical Franklin fashion, he replied back in his own paper in essay form. He said that basically he can't win, he's published articles in his paper that he's disagreed with and articles that have lost him money. You just can't please all of the people all of the time.

Fable News Is Advocating War With Syria Without Any Proof, WHY!?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Why do "Fable News", aka Mainstream Media, aka CNN/MSNBC/Fox News want to drum up war with Syria? Don't they understand what a HUGE cost it will be to the American people, both in human lives and monetarily? Just look at the cost of the missiles we produce. $8 MILLION for one Tomahawk missile, multiply that by a couple hundred and you start to see how much it will cost the average tax payer. BUT OH, we're creating jobs! Someone's going to have to build that missile! Good job Obama Propaganda Machine, you've outdone yourself this time.

War Isn’t On Netflix Or Hulu, You Shouldn’t Have To Be Sold On It

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Obama, many of his buddies in the Democratic party, and almost all of the Decepticons are trying to sell you war like it's the newest, greatest streaming video service. He's going to CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, all of the mainstream media outlets to try and convince the American sheeple that they need to buy something they don't need... MORE WAR! What did the President do before TV? Well, he had to actually go to Congress and ask for support, imagine that! Not that this is really anything new, we've seen it practically since the invention of Television, but one of our favorite recent examples is Al Gore's campaign against global warming... now where's that giant tidal wave that's going to kill us all?

Kevin Gutzman on John Dickinson and the AUMF

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Kevin Gutzman joins us on today's Founders TV to talk to us about how John Dickinson (or any of the Founding Fathers) would have counseled the current world rulers in Washington D.C. on Syria and the AUMF. Well, how does Prof. Gutzman think the Founders would have responded to the current situation? Well, to put it mildly... they probably would not have been too happy with what they're doing in Mordor. Dickinson and many of the other Founders did not want to set up an Empire, like Obama and other Decepticons are trying to do right now.

Patrick Henry May Not Be Who You Think He Is

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The painting that you think of when you think of Patrick Henry was painted in 1815... well, Patrick Henry died in 1799. What other popular portraits of Patrick Henry are there? The one where he's arguing against the Stamp Act at the House of Burgesses, but that one wasn't finished until the 1850's. Even though Patrick Henry was a very busy man, he was also the Governor of Virginia for about 30 years, so it's not like he didn't have time to sit down for a portrait. And besides, you can't swing a dead cat around the Founding Fathers without hitting a portrait of one of them. So what's going on here?

Ghosts of Founders Past Reveal Our Future: John Taylor on Congress

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Let's not pretend that everyone in the House of Representin' is fighting against the debt ceiling being raised for all the right reasons. Oh, there are certainly a few, but for the most part, it's not because they are DEFENDERS OF THE CONSTITUTION, they are doing for their own selfish reasons. But it's always been like that... well, maybe not the FIRST Congress, but very soon after that, and John Taylor of Caroline witnessed it happening. Why does it matter? Because in his book, Tyranny Unmasked, John Taylor saw our future, he witnessed what we were going to become now. If only we had listened to John Taylor, we may not be in the situation we are in now.
