Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Three weeks after Obama's election and the talk of Secession is still going strong... especially in Texas. In fact, Larry Kilgore is running for Governor of Texas and will even change his name to Larry SECEDE Kilgore. But what about Ron Paul? In an interview with Mike earlier in the year he said the he didn't really think Secession was a very good idea... but lately he's changed his mind about it, which he doesn't do very often, so ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Southern Avenging no more: Jack Hunter confesses his sins to the new politico magazine including the whole "Southern Avenger" routine and many of his S.A. beliefs. So, folks, JACK is what happens when you step outside the index card our federal and party overlords have written our pre-approved dialogue and opinions on. Unfortunately, Jack lives and works in Mordor (D.C. for the newbies out there), so if he wanted to continue working….Continue
Mandeville, LA - We will all hear a lot about Washington's Thanksgiving proclamation of 1789 and how this holiday has its roots in the Christian tradition. While this is true and not the point of this post it's still worth noting. Let me get to the point. Late in his retirement James Madison began to develop his theory over he and Jefferson's "wall of separation", best expressed in "Memorial and Remonstrance on Religious Liberty". Madison's 1785 tract (1), written to oppose ….Continue
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….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - It's true that every country spies on each other in some form or another, but not to the extent that the NSA is doing. And aren't other countries supposed to look up to us as the standard of freedom and liberty throughout the world? So what does it tell everyone when the NSA is out there collecting e-mails and texts from France, Japan, and Germany? It tells them that spying has become the norm, that peo….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - What many schools do is teach for tests, higher tests scores ensures more funding from the Federal Leviathan. And why are they doing this? Because the teaching is being nationalized, it is becoming controlled by the national government, and the kids are being turned into nothing more than data collectors for the Feds. But the most important things that we learn in school can't be measured in a spreadshe….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Some people seem to think that with the passage of Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act) that the end of the world is coming, and coming soon! There seems to be an incredible despair out there... or at least on Facbook, Twitter, and other news shows. It's getting to where Obamacare is seriously affecting people's day to day lives, how they interact with their families and friends, this cannot be healthy f….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When people are wearing flip flops and camo gear... to Mass, what is the Conservative Gentleman to wear? Well, much like in the political realm, there is not specific guide, but we have history to guide us. We can look back at some of the great conservatives, Russell Kirk and T.S. Elliot for example, to see what they wore, which was mostly suits and ties. Many men's styles were created in the 1930's and these styles are not stuck in….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Russell Kirk published "The Conservative Mind" in 1953, guess what ELSE was published in 1953? The scientific "discoveries" that were predicted to, by now, have delivered our scientifically engineered and guided, utopia. Two schools of thought in the same year and most Americans followed the scientific one, not the one that would have improved their spiritual lives with what Kirk called "the permanent things". Things such as moralit….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Five Colorado counties got it right yesterday. That's five counties you can remember on the 5th of November for voting for Secession. This may be the most encouraging thing that has happened in at least the last decade. That these 11 counties officially got the S-word on a ballot and successfully voted for it in 5 of them. This is why there's very little news on this... because the national news doesn't know how to deal with the S-w….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Let's not forget that almost every President since the greatest one (George Washington in case you were wondering) has had speech writers. These people are often influenced by other sources throughout history, sometimes they are quoted, cited in footnotes, sometimes they are not. It's always better to cite your sources, especially now days, when the media is ready to pounce on anyone (especially someone on the right) that they belie….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Ten counties in Colorado are voting on whether or not they want to SECEDE from the state of Colorado. And if it does happen and they are admitted into the Union (or they could stay out there on their own and start a trend) they'll have their own Governor, own Congressman, and won't have to answer to Gov Hickenlooper or the people of Denver. This is little r [r]epublicanism at work folks. Now a lot of pe….Continue
Mike Church participated in the annual Free Enterprise Institute's "Founders Day Breakfast" at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston TX. Joining a list of luminary speakers including Annette Kirk, widow of the late Dr Russell Kirk, Stephen Klugewicz, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair and Gleaves Whitney, Mike delivered a spirited 8 minute presentation of some little known facts on the life of Patrick Henry. Included is the story of one of the Alamo's defenders, one Patrick H….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The thing about politics is that it draws (mostly) greedy, egotistical people... who are very good at their job. And most of them consider "their job" to be charismatic enough to get re-elected, and re-elected, and re-elected. Unfortunately, most of these people couldn't properly manage a 7-11. Solutions to these problems are also not going to come from within the Federal Government, it will come from the States, that's where we ca….Continue
Mandeville, LA - From one of my [r]epublican Thought of The Day entries. "My [r]epublican Thought Of The Day. Imploring today's Jacobin-like "conservatives" to hone their manners, read Livy or Cicero and ignite the pursuit of civic virtue provokes profanity-laced reactions that you would expect from "liberals". One should read the tale of Thomas Paine's nearly fatal effort to convince the original Jacobins of France with similar sentiments." The following is excerpted from t….Continue
