Madison: George Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation Crashed 1st Amendment

Topics: , , ,

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

Washington's Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer - Jimmy Madison Would Not Approve

Topics: , , , ,

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

How Does The NSA Affect Our Foreign Policy?

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , , ,

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

The Supreme Court vs The NSA, When Will The Ultimate Smackdown Happen?

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There was an attempt to drag the NSA into the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court resisted. More than likely, the Supreme Court was just waiting on the right case (if that makes sense) so they could issue the decision that they kinda already have planned, which would be that they don't believe that what the NSA is doing is Constitutional (mostly, it'll probably be a mixed bag of opinions). The group that brought the case to the Supr….Continue

With Great Freedom Comes Great Responsibility

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , , ,

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

THE END IS NIGH! Obamacare Will Destroy Us All!

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

What Does The Conservative Gentleman Wear In These Modern Times?

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , ,

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

1953: Two Roads Diverged In America, And We Unfortunately Took The One More Traveled

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , , , , ,

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

Five Things To Remember On The Fifth Of November

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , ,

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

If Rand Paul Is Guilty of Plagiarism... So Is Almost Every President Since George Washington

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , ,

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

Mark Kreslins: The Wrong People Are Going Into Politics

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , ,

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

The Old Jacobins Nearly Killed Thomas Paine; The New Jacobins (mistaken) Patron Saint

Topics: , ,

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

What Is The Purpose of the NSA Spying on Foreign Countries?

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - What is the purpose of the NSA spying on countries like France, Germany, and Japan? Well, it all comes back to our foreign (interventionist) policy where we feel like we must know everything that is going on in the world and if one of these countries does something that we don't like, well we've already got it documented. But think about this, what if it happened in your personal life? How would you feel if your friends or family sp….Continue
