The 3 Amigos of Nullification, Jefferson, Madison & Taylor. Speech by Mike Church

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Transcript Topics: , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - You’ve probably all read the KY & VA Resolves on nullification & interposition and, like most people, think that is the beginning and end of the story, but like most great epics in history there is always a back story that is equally as important. In the case of Nullification & Interposition the back story is that the inspiration for the resolves wasn’t from a brain storming session between Jefferson, Taylor & Madison. The inspiration actually came from th….Continue

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

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

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 s….Continue

What is Conservatism? According to Russell Kirk It's A Set of Principles, Not Party Politics.

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

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Conservatism isn't about political parties or even politics in general. Simply put, it's about conserving the good things in one's life. Conserving your family, relationships with friends, culture, history, community, nature, etc. You wouldn't try to conserve the bad or evil things in your life would you? Russell Kirk gives us ten principles that we should follow as conservatives, and not too surprisingly if you listen to this show,….Continue

Defenders of the Constitution... Is There Anybody Out There?

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

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - How many TRUE statesmen have their been recently? True defenders of the Constitution. Ted Cruz? Nah. Ron Paul is about the only one that we can actually think of. And it doesn't matter if these guys are Republican or Democrat. Why anyone would want to jump on board with any member of the current political class is beyond comprehension. Almost everyone is there to toe the party line, be it Republican or Democrat, and this is exactly ….Continue

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

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

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 ….Continue

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

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

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 happ….Continue

Consumerism Will Save The American Economy!

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

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 an….Continue

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

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

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. Fo….Continue

Mandeville, LA  - "These Are The Times That Try Men's Souls" December 23, 1776 -- for those of you that are history majors and attend your history lessons every day by visiting this radio show or by visiting MikeChurch.com and all the stuff we link to in the posts, how many of you know what was going on on December 23, 1776? The Continental Army had been thrashed.  It had been thrashed, ambushed by 20,000 to 25,000 British regulars and 10,000 Hessian mercenaries at Long Is….Continue

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

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

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 reme….Continue

Free Market Chickens Would Be Safer Than USDA Chickens

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

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….Continue

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

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

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….Continue

The Statue of Liberty, A Gift To The People, Not The Government

Topics: ,

Mandeville, LA - Many gallons of ink have been spilled and trillions of phosphorous pixels burned over the Feds-"government shutdown inspired"- shuttering of Liberty Island and the Statue of Liberty. I have asked the question "why" this is so seeing as how the Statue belongs to the People of the United States, NOT the government. I promised to locate the documentary history of the statue and prove this point beyond dispute. In light of this, I present to you the 1884 letter of….Continue

The Leviathan Continues to Expand... With or Without Obamacare

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , ,

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 o….Continue

How is the Millenial Generation Going to Fix This Mess? Will They Even Bother?

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

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - National Journal columnist Ron Fournier thinks the ObamaCare "shutdown" spells the end of the GOP, the status quo of the DNC and the rise of "millennials" but if Noah Webster were still alive, I imagine the caterwaul of four letter words he might use to describe the "millennial." Time Magazine gave the "Me Me Me" generation a cover story last May and concluded, "They’re narcissistic. They’re lazy. They’re coddled. They’re ev….Continue

The Power of the Veto: What Will Obama Do?

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

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. Additi….Continue

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

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

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 bu….Continue

Why Does America Always Have to be the Big Old Bully?

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Everyone has those friends who are just big, like REALLY big, either tall, muscular, or both... but they're nice guys. They're the type of guys that don't start fights, don't throw their weight around, don't get involved in other peoples business. So why can't the good old US of A be more like that? Why do we have to be the big angry drunk at the party who keeps yelling in everyone's faces and trying to start fights? We have the pow….Continue

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….Continue

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

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

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 a….Continue
