"Money For Nuthin' & Your Chicks For Free"-My Tour of the RNC

Tampa FL - Warned John Taylor in his "Inquiry Into The Principles of the Gov't of the United States"  "[The powerful Executive branch]...converts representation into vassalage to the leaders of parties, disciplined, not by the comparatively honourable infliction of the lash, but by the base and wicked sophism, that it is honourable to stick to a party, and treacherous to adhere to conscience. The disciples of this infamous doctrine are forged into tools for ambition and tyran….Continue

One Gentleman's Journey To The Fellow Traveller Side of a Line In The Sand

Topics: , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - I have met many men in my role of satellite radio pariah to the Republican establishment (and outright heretic to the Democrat coven) but few match the genius and literary gift that is Brad Birzer. From the first time I read his "American Cicero-The Life of Charles Carroll of Carrollton" I was hooked on Brad's writing. Over the last 3 years we have become friends and I have benefitted and learned much from that relationship. Brad is now emerging into new terr….Continue

Hello Straw, My Name's CNN, & I'm Here To Grasp At You (The REAL History of USA/Anglo Saxon)

Topics: , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - The Parrot Press Corps has outdone itself this time, ambushing an unsuspecting Mitt Romney for uttering the words "Anglo-Saxon" in a positive manner. Romney pledged to ease the icy tension between Great Britain and the U.S. *(he might just want to jot down UK specs for DVD's & CD's) after Obama's famous slight (a gift of DVD's that won't play on EU DVD players).  The Telegraph UK, breathlessly reported the possible tinge of "racial insensitivity" containe….Continue

Speech Week: What Would the Young Founders Do With ObamaCare?

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

The title of tonight's talk is 'What Would The Young Founders Do With ObamaCare? ' It is a sign of our times that the terms 'Founding Fathers' have almost become synonymous with acts of virtue, prudence and the highest moral character and while that is mostly true, there were times when the men we call 'founding fathers ' tried the patience of their elders, acted immaturely and even did radical things you may think only show-offs or wild men might do, in other words those youn….Continue

Thomas Jefferson's [r]epublican America is Much Like The One Mike Church Promotes


Thomas Jefferson letter to John Cartwright. To Major John Cartwright Monticello, June 5, 1824 Dear and Venerable Sir, I am much indebted for your kind letter of February the 29th, and for your valuable volume on the English constitution.  I have read this with pleasure and much approbation, and think it has deduced the constitution of the English nation from its rightful root, the Anglo-Saxon.  It is really wonderful, that so many able and learned men should have failed in t….Continue

The Virginia Declaration of Rights by George Mason

(Audio) Mandeville, LA - I have often told the story that while writing the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson was inspired by founder George Mason. There is no clearer example of this than Jefferson's heavy use of Mason's phrase from the VA Declaration concerning the pursuit of happiness. this should clear it up and hopefully help the reader fully understand that had Jefferson been as verbose as Mason, the "all men are created equal" phrase from the Declaration woul….Continue

Jefferson to Madison: Just say no on post roads

Mandeville, LA - It often comes to my attention that most folks think it entirely proper that the Federal Government should design, confiscate the property, then build and maintain millions of miles of Interstate roads and bridges. Many time people use the argument that "well the Constitution does give Congress authority to build post roads." Actually the Constitution gives Congress the authority to"establish" post roads NOT build them. No one exp….Continue

Bradford vs Jaffa-Why Lincoln was NOT a Founder & The Origins of Exceptionalism

Mandeville, LA - If you have ever heard the term "Straussians" you may have wondered "who was Strauss?" The next question should be then "how did Strauss come to influence so many if so few know about him?" Leo Strauss was a German emigre who escaped the war and landed as a professor at the University of Chicago. Strauss earned a cult following for his views on "equality" and the American "destiny" to enforce it on her citizens and then the rest of the world. Strauss influence….Continue

Dr Gutzman: The Founder's Generation...

Begin Mike Church Show Transcript Mike:  What is the difference between the men that were in public life at the turn of the 18th Century – from 1760 to 1800 or 1810, say – what is the difference between those men and the citizenry at large, for that matter, and between us?  And the big difference, I think, and I’ll get your take on this, is that that generation grew up with a fear, a palpable fear of government.

George Washington and his "lordly masters"

On Wednesday, 13 July, 2011 I read parts of this letter on-air to help flesh out the comparison between the Revolutionary War period 1765-1781 and today's debt ceiling, debt limit, Federal Overlord induced tyranny.
