Patrick Henry-American Statesman, The Book

An Actual Founding Father's Inaugural Address - No Egos Here

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

Let me read to you how a Founding Father accepted his inauguration. This will come as a shock to you people, but I actually have here in my hands the text of Thomas Jefferson’s first inaugural address. Yes, even back then those old fuddy-duddy guys in white stockings and powdered wigs gave addresses when they were inaugurated. The striking thing about Jefferson’s inauguration is the humility and the humble attitude that he approached it as. Which you’ll hear here in the ….Continue

Earl of Chesterfield: Letters to His Son

Topics: , , ,

Mandeville, LA -For the last 100 years or so, men have ceded their masculine powers both physical and mental to women who are, truth be told, are biologically inferior in both conditions when it comes to raising and grooming the next generation of Gentleman/Statesman. Please note that the preceding does not preclude a strong and necessary female role in young men's lives, quite the contrary, it merely reassigns the roles as they were traditionall….Continue

My Response to the Revisionist 2nd Amendment Claims of Samuel Goldman

Mandeville, LA  - So the furious quest to WILL the second Amendment into being something it never was continues this time at The American Conservative with writer Samuel Goldman channeling the  Constructionist Justice Story to validate the 2nd Amendment as universal. "As Sanford Levinson points out in this response, that interpretation is logically coherent but historically implausible. Given America’s mythologized origins in citizen revolt, Levinson suggests, a more conv….Continue

What Did Virginia's Founding Fathers Really Mean When They Ratified Constitution?

Topics: , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - In a post I wrote earlier this week we discussed the fact the not only were the Southern States correct in their assertion of the Constitution as a Compact but nearly the entire PLANET agreed with them-save for that violent, tyrannical mob in New England. My post made its way onto the pages of The Imaginative Conservative website. In the comments that resulted, it was asserted that I didn't know what I was talking about and that the VA Founding Fathers NEVER i….Continue

Topics: , ,

Preview from What Lincoln Killed: The Timothy Pickering Story of Northern Secession Mandeville, LA - We have all heard enough perfunctory incriminations hurled at anyone using "the S word" these days: secession. Say it in the wrong company, which unfortunately is most company and you may get a face-full of spittle asserting "the Right of secession". "Why" they confidently bellow "we had a war over that and settled it". Or witness the listless "everyone knows that secession was….Continue

Jefferson Informs Congress of Pirates and ASKS Them What To Do

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

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I’m putting together a history of the Louisiana Purchase. The reason for it is because so many people are convinced that Jefferson was a hypocrite, and that he did not consult the Constitution and that the Louisiana Purchase was an unconstitutional act, therefore Jefferson was no friend to the Constitution. That is not true. That is not the case. The Louisiana Purchase was a correct use of presidential authority, and the Senate and….Continue

The Right To Determine Your Government Is Not Treason- Lysander Spooner

Topics: , , , ,

Mandeville, LA -Lysander Spooner is known as an opponent of the Constitution but that description isn't accurate as a scholarly & sober reading of this tract, Treason Pt I will confirm.

In "Treason" Spooner demolishes the legitimacy of the North's war of….Continue
