American Statesman – George Washington’s Writings

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The American Statesman series brings us many of George Washington's writings which were converted from his hand written notes to type by Henry Cabot Lodge, which he did all by hand (no copying and pasting from Wikipedia). Cabot Lodge also edited several other books on famous (and some not so famous) Americans, and what made these books unique is that they were written for the lay person of the day, unlike many of today's modern books aimed specifically at one group of people. The American Statesman series is also one of the few places you can read about one of the least known, but most influential Americans in its history: John Randolph.

If The Sovereign People of North Colorado Want to Secede, Who Can Stop Them?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - One of the rights of being sovereign is determining your own form of government. If the people of North Colorado want to secede, then they have every right to, unless there is a law EXPRESSLY forbidding it in their Constitution (which is very doubtful). If a law doesn't exist forbidding secession, then that right is left to the people, since there is no "King of Colorado" to stop them. And if the people of North Colorado have the sovereign right to leave Colorado what does that mean for the rest of the state (and for the rest of us)? That they also have the right to leave the Federal Union as well. 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!

“Hey Everyone, Just Got a New Data Center, Please Text Me Your Contact Info! K THNX!” -NSA

One of the activities that will continue to be funded, that no one seems to care about, is the NSA spyfare state. The NSA is collecting millions of contacts from YOUR e-mail and instant message address books, not just in the United States, but world wide. During a single day the NSA can collect info on hundreds of thousands e-mail addresses from multiple services. Why do they need contact info from e-mails? Well it's the same reason they were collecting info from phones. They are collecting info for a case against YOU! If you step outside the boundaries of the law, be it the tax law, or anything else, they will have a case against you... at their disposal.

Consumerism Will Save The American Economy!

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There's a headline at cbsnews.com that says that "Can US Consumers Save The Economy?". But isn't consumerism what's wrong with America? Isn't there another school of thought, from Wilhelm Röpke and others, that says that consuming will not get us out of debt? So this article is nothing more than an attempt at trying to get Americans to try and get their butts off the wealth of cash they are hording and SPEND SPEND SPEND. But the article also states that Americans are also using more credit cards for purchases, more student loans, and more financing for cars and such. So what does that tell us? That they are BORROWING more! That most Americans don't have any cash to spend! And... that most of us are acting like the Congress that we supposedly abhor by borrowing against our future.

The First Bill Obama Has to Pay Is… The Debt (So There’s NOT Going to Be a Default)

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Everyone keeps worrying about whether or not the Federal Government is going default on its debt, well it's not. Congress has already approved the spending to pay the interest on the debt and the first thing Obama has to do is pay off that debt. So STOP WORRYING (or hoping) that we're going to default on our debt. What everyone is arguing about right now is whether or not we can BORROW more to SPEND more, if that makes any sense.

Miley Cyrus and the Anti-Cult, She Can’t Be Blamed For EVERYTHING

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - We've seen some recent examples of the anti-cult, mainly at the VMA's with Miley Cyrus and her twerking incident and now her hosting of SNL. This "anti-cult" has been widely accepted in today's society, whereas actual culture (such as Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, etc) is seen as old-fashioned and silly. Miley is the epitome of the anti-cult, but she's certainly not wholly to blame for it, it's been a long time in the making. But remember, just say the word "art" and all is forgiven...

Free Market Chickens Would Be Safer Than USDA Chickens

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When you take out the one entity, in this case the USDA, that can't be sued if they approve tainted meat then you will have safer foods. Why? Because if another company was approving chickens for consumption and they screwed up, they could be sued, and they DO NOT want to be sued, eventually they'll go out of business from enough lawsuits. Even if the chickens make it to a restaurant and they've gone bad you have the option of suing the restaurant, which can then in turn sue the company it got the chickens from. And again, no one wants to spend all of their time in the courts with lawsuits. So the bottom line here is that once you get rid of the organizations that CAN'T be sued, you'll have safer meat.

Has John Boehner Gone Full republican? No, But On This Issue He’s Got It Right.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Has John Boehner gone full [r]epublican? Certainly not. He's really only channeling his inner little r [r]epublican on one issue: Obamacare. There's too many other issues that if he stood his ground like this he would be doing so at his own peril (IE: not getting re-elected). So, where does this leave Boehner and the rest of the GOP? For once they are in the right, and if you're a little r [r]epublican you can also stand behind them on this... but don't get too comfortable back there.

The Leviathan Continues to Expand… With or Without Obamacare

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - No matter what happens with Obamacare, and it will certainly pass in some form or fashion, the Leviathan will continue to expand. And it does this as if it's being friendly to the private citizen and private business, but it's not. Any type of Federal intervention into your affairs, your businesses affairs, comes with a price. Today that price is Obamacare, but tomorrow who knows what it will be? 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!

The Power of the Veto: What Will Obama Do?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Even if everyone gets along and passes the Affordable Care Act, will Obama veto it, as he should? No, of course not, he'll sign it but for all the wrong reasons. If he signs it, he's saying that "this bill does not do damage to the Constitution" but everyone knows that it does, but so does Medicare, Medicaid, etc. Is there any chance at all that he will veto it? Yeah sure... for partisan reasons. Additions to the bill by House Republicans may force Obama to veto PARTS of the bill and send it back to be reviewed again, but that seems unlikely.

Mark Kreslins: The Constitution Wasn’t Handed Down From God

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Many so-called "conservatives" (aka Decepticons) will tell you that the Constitution is a document that was handed down to the Founding Fathers by God himself. But the people that tell you that probably have never actually even read the Constitution, or if they have, they don't know about Patrick Henry, or why he objected the ratification of it, why Governor Yates walked out of the debates. It's not a perfect document. Those same people will tell you that the Constitution grants the ultimate power to the Federal Government (which it does not). So why do we even need the Constitution or the Federal Government? Well, we don't. For more with Mark be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already!

Mark Kreslins: Are People Finally Realizing That THEY Are The Power?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There's a petition by a group of truckers to just take a weekend off and essentially shut down America. Think about the message that will send to Washington DC. Are people finally starting to realize that they hold the power in this country? States such as Maryland are at least discussing secession. That fact alone should give many of you hope. How often was secession discussed in the last 100 years? With information available to so many people at their fingertips, it empowers people to realize that THEY have the power in this country, in this government.

The Hidden Taxes of Assisted Reproductive Technology

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The American Conservative website has a story that you don't read about every day... A couple of women are writing about how ART (Advanced Reproductive Technology) is not all it's cracked up to be. It taxes your body, it taxes your mind, and it taxes your bank account. And in many cases it doesn't end in pregnancy. It's also a $4 BILLION industry that tries to keep men and women coming back for more and if you "quit" then you're just not strong enough to make it through the gauntlet. Don't let science take advantage of you, there's always another way. 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!

Syria: Just The Same Old Song And Dance

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Iraq, Afghanistan, Sadaam, The Gulf of Tonkin... does any of this ring any bells? We've seen it all before. Supposed "intelligence" that has either been false or non-existent but is what we've based our wars on. It looks like we'd be somewhat tempered by now in our desire to go to war on this "intelligence". BUT the Obama administration and the media keep banging the war drums and trying to get the American sheeple to support this "moral obligation". Well, if we have any moral obligation by now, it's to NOT get into yet another war. 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 Are The Real Motives In Syria? Oil? Maybe. Grow The Empire? More Likely.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - What are the real motives in Syria? Are they oil? That's doubtful, we get oil from plenty of other sources and it's "just" one commodity. So what else is going on here? Well, let's look at a bit of history. Look at some of the other great empires throughout history: The Romans, The Spanish, and The British mainly. Where are they now? None of them have the status and global dominance they once did. The American Empire will try and keep spreading democracy to all ends of the globe (and the ice world of Hoth) so that it will never have the same fate as the Romans, Spaniards, or Brits.

Boehner Needs To Listen To Ohio, And Ohio Needs To Worry About Itself

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Say hello to the newest scourge on the medical free market (if there is such a thing today) - BoehnerCare, an entity that will draw thousands of Tea Party protestors to the speakers office today. But why are they really protesting? The Governor of Ohio has already stated that he will do the exchanges instead. So shouldn't actions of the state inform the actions of the represantive in the Senate? If the state of Ohio isn't going along with Obamacare, the why isn't Boehner already working to defund it? And the Tea Partiers already have what they want... through their state government. 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!

The Unspoken Laws That (Should) Govern Us

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Where is the "gentlemanness" in PRO football asks Steven Klugewitz? The babseball diamond seems to have stuck to it's honorable traditions, so why not football? I would add, what about DINNER!? Where's the gentleman-like behavior at the dinner table at home AND in public? There are many places where these "unspoken laws" should apply, but modern culture seems to tell us that practically any type of behavior is acceptable (see: Miley Cyrus).

The Tug of War on Boys in Public Schools

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Time Magazine has an article about how school has become too hostile for boys. A young boy was suspended for chewing the sides off of a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun and "shooting" it at someone. Another boy was suspended for throwing an imaginery hand grenade to save the world. These draconian enforcements of the "zero tolerance" policy are keeping boys from being boys. When young boys can't use their imagination other areas of their learning skills are inhibited, creative writing for one. In almost all of the instances where the boys were suspended when they were asked "why they did it" they responded with "Because it's fun".

The American Sheeple Love Their Shiny New Toys

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The American Sheeple love ANYTHING new and (supposedly) improved. "You should think like someone of the 21st Century" we constantly hear, but why? Why would we want to think like the current society? Another example of "new and better" things are Rubio and Cruz. The same people that were writing about Obama having little to no experience just a few years ago when he was running for President are the same ones pining over Rubio and Cruz because they are new. People's partisanship gets in the way of their common sense. 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!

The Four Million Dollar Teacher: Made in Korea?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Many kids are going back to school in late August or early September and the question always comes up, "Are they actually learning anything?" Well, because we have such a QUANTITY of education here, that is so heavily regulated by standards such as the Common Core, that they are actually dumbing down the curriculum of schools. So is there any place in the educated world that actually has an education market that values Quality over Quantity? Yes... South Korea, in private tutors. Many students choose their own teachers which creates highly sought out, and highly paid, Rock Star Educators such as Kim Ki-Hoon who made $4 Million last year alone. Can you imagine a teacher in the United States making that much? I thought only athletes and movie stars were supposed to make that kind of money.

Madison Explains It All: Why Ted Cruz Can Or Cannot Run For President

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There's an ongoing discussion of whether or not Ted Cruz is eligible for running for President... even though he has not announced is running as of yet. Certainly he meets the requirements for being a Senator, but does he meet the requirements for being a President? Let's let James Madison explain... According to Mr. Madison the "natural born citizen" requirement does not necessarily mean that he was born on U.S. soil. The question is more about the loyalty of ones parents? If ones parents are loyal to another country when that person is born then they may not be considered a natural born citizen.

Education Isn’t Just For Students, Teachers Can Learn New Things Too

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - In most states, continuing education is required by law for many professions... Doctors for example need to be educated about the latest drugs. So why aren't our educators required to do this? And we're not saying that this should be administered by the state, not at all. But shouldn't the people educating our youth be up to date on the latest technologies, teaching methods, etc.? And what has happened to teaching the classics in school? Now again, we're not talking about Harry Potter or even To Kill A Mockingbird (a modern classic, yes) but true classics like Homer's The Odyssey and The Iliad. They have been pushed to the side in favor of "what is popular", well, how about doing "what is right"?

T-T-Tomorrow’s News Today… Not Always R-R-Right, But FAST

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Did you know you can get tomorrow's news today? That's the way the news business works today. They receive their editorial submissions in the evening for tomorrow's print edition... and go ahead and publish them on the web that evening or night. But that doesn't always mean that news is reliable. For instance... this article on the NY Slimes by James Traub is a a half right half wrong review of the demise of the Federalists, then links that story to the quickening demise of the Republicans. For the record, the outrage hurled at Federalists was not over demography but was over nationalism, hijacking the Constitution over actual federalism. But don't take our word for it, check the sources.

Be Careful What You Say in American Politics… Especially if You Are Pigmentally Challenged

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Jack Hunter is with Rand Paul as Social Media Director no more. The Southern Avenger aims to avenge his good name from those who have tried to make it an adverb as in "you're not going to go all Southern Avenger on me now are you, Cletus?" Jack has not physically hurt anyone, he has not defamed anyone, he has merely spoken some words that people generally do not agree with. Should that really be basis for dismissal? What happens when Rand's form of libertarianism becomes more popular as he gets ready for 2016? How many people from his past are the big R Republicans and the liberal Democrats going to have problems with... just for saying something they don't agree with.

Foreign Policy Is THE Issue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Everything our magisterial government does descends from it's foreign policy, how we treat people in foreign countries reflects on how we treat people in our own country. So what does that say about us? In countries like Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Bosnia, and Libya, we are funding a war on Christianity and supporting mob democracy. Now that these countries have "democracy" and they get a chance to vote, everything is going to be perfect, right? As long as they vote for the person and people that the US Government supports. But what happens when they don't? Does the US Government intervene AGAIN, even though these countries already have "democracy"? When does it stop, folks?

Obama Insists That Kenya Support Gay Marriage But They Are a God-Fearing Country and Are Having None of It (Unlike US)

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Kenya's President pushes back against Dear Leader's insistence that that nation become secular and embrace homosexual marriages saying “Those who believe in other things, that is their business, Ruto said at St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church in Maili Kumi. “We believe in God. This nation, the nation of Kenya, sovereign and God-fearing." Obama may think this is the trade that he will get for "contributing" $70 Million worth of windmills to Kenya to help power 20 Million buildings. Well, they are having none of it and despite the aid from the American Government/Corporation (same thing really) for windmills, their stance on gay marriage is not changing, despite how our President feels.

‘Official’ Wiretap In The USSA: $50,452. Conviction Rate 18%: Priceless?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - An article at zerohedge tells us that there is an NSA wiretapping "report" sent to congress each year, that it is public knowledge and that each wiretap costs over $50,000 and only has an 18% conviction rate. This raises numerous questions, the first of which is how much of this information is actually public? How much is still classified at the NSA underground servers in Utah? And if a wiretap costs $50,000... who can fight that in a court of law? The government can, literally, print money and beat you into submission with it. And what's happening to the other 88% of the wiretaps? Where is all that information going? Folks, this is yet another can of worms that the NSA and Congress is opening up here with this report... and it's not good.

Like It Or Not: The 16th and 17th Amendments Are Part of the Constitution

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - A writer at the American Thinker postulates that the 16th & 17th Amendments can be overturned/repealed/nullified by a majority vote in 3/4 of the state legislatures which sounds nice and inspirational but is patently fales. An Amendment IS a part of the Constitution and thus can only be altered by ANOTHER Amendment as Mike explains in today's Founders TV. So, no matter how you feel about the 16th and 17th Amendments, they are there, they can be altered, but not the way this American Thinker writer hopes and dreams.

Independence Day Is About Conserving the Good Parts Of Your Past

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - "Conserving the good parts of your past" is what our Founding Fathers did when they seceded from the King and Great Britian. They weren't fighting for a new found freedom, they already had freedom, they wanted to keep it, to conserve it. Independence Day should be a day to honor those men who fought to conserve our liberties, but we should also conserve the good parts of our own past, both individually and at a political level. Independence Day also shouldn't be the only day of the year that we recognize the past, every day should be like that, every day we should try and conserve those good parts, that is what conservatism is really about.

The Events of Today’s Independence Day Will Be Much Different From That of 1776

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The number one example of how tyrannical our government has gotten since 1776 is that of Edward Snowden. Not only did he have to flee the country for fear of prosecution but he is also seeking asylum in India and China. Now, what would our Founding Fathers have thought of this situation? Especially on the heels of seceding from the tyrannical King George III and Great Britian? Many of them would probably see Edward Snowden as a fellow patriot, he's certainly not selling any of our secrets to any enemy countries (China and Russia aren't enemies last we checked), he's just trying to inform the American Citizenry about what their oppressive government has been doing the last several years (decades?).

Texting + Walking Service in Scotland? No Need, They Don’t Have Their Heads Buried in Their Phones.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - So what do the people of Scotland do all the time if they're not checking Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, etc on their smartphone all day? Well, maybe they're talking to their neighbor, meeting new people in real life, or actually doing work with their hands. In Scotland the people don't talk about politics 24/7 like we do here in the States, they prefer to discuss the finer points of rugby and soccer. We could learn a lot from the Scots. It's nice to take a break from national politics and go meet your neighbor, enjoy your work, and go to a local baseball or soccer game.

Stovall vs Cornyn – Who Represents Liberty?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Join us on today's Founders TV with special guests Mark Kreslins and Dwayne Stovall. Dwayne is considering running against Senator John Cornyn who, as he puts it, is a "Democrat in a Republican T-Shirt". Cornyn is not a friend of republicanism, federalism, or limited government. He is more historically aligned with a nationalist like Alexander Hamilton than a supporter of individual liberty like Thomas Jefferson. For more on Mr. Stovall's views and running against Sen.

The Stock Market is Down Except for Two Sectors: Government and More Government

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - An interesting report came out today about U.S. growth shrinking in every section of the economy except two: home construction (supported by Government) and... Government. Does this surprise anyone? The entire economy is propped up on Bernanke's funny money so no one is spending, no one can save, and this includes businesses and private individuals. But as long as the Federal Government can keep printing money, they can keep inflating their own sectors of the economy and making themselves look great at the expense of every other private business.
