White House Cites Lincoln on Secession But Lincoln's Abolitionist Buddies WERE Secessionists

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

Mandeville, LA - By Mike Church - When the White House responded to Michael E.'s "Peaceful Secession from Union" petition they quoted Lincoln as the historian of record for the view that "there is no right to walk away" [from the Union]. That's a historically ignorant statement seeing as how abolitionist Yankee Senators and citizens alike who ultimately would call Southerners "traitors", agitated for and promoted "secession as a duty" as late as 1861.….Continue

EPIC: Paleocons vs Libertarians in Russell Kirk's "Chirping Sectaries"

Topics: , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Since the subject of Tradition vs Reason come sup nearly every day on the Mike Church Show, I thought it would be helpful to lay out what the differences are - or were - between Libertarians & their practice of Reason and Paleocon/Tradcons and their defense and study of Tradition. M.E. Bradfor's opus magnus "A Better Guide Than Reason" takes the side of Tradition as does this essay by Russell Kirk "Chirping Sectaries". It is undeniable that the sinking of ….Continue

For The John Roberts Haters, HL Mencken on "Provocative Mirth"

Topics: ,

For those still troubled and aching over Chief Justice-Supreme Mystic Ruler -John Roberts' majority opinion in ObamaCare, recall, that some of us predicted the outcome AND told you that putting your constitution's fate in the judiciousness of Federal Judges would lead to tears and tyranny. Consider this little gem from HL Mencken. "It is, perhaps, a fact provocative of sour mirth that the Bill of Rights was designed trustfully to prohibit forever two of the favorite crimes of ….Continue

When Your Daughter Brings Home Salvador Dali

Mandeville, LA - My precious, innocent baby girl Reagan (she is 15) quoted Salvador Dahli to me today and then showed me an image form one of his works. Far from being "cool" I told her, Dahli was a pervert and a disgusting human being. I recalled I once read a piece of an essay prepared by george Orwell on Dahli-posted in the early 90's @Brad Birzer's Hillsdale College (in Imprimis). I have located the compleat essay, shared it with my daughter a….Continue

Brave Horatius at the bridge

I am often asked the question: Mike, if you're so sure there is no hope for the Constitution and the Union why don't YOU just give up!?"

That's where the "Brave Horatius at the bridge" poem comes in because Horatius faces the same situation and the same question, yet he soldiers on. Share this poem with your children, friends and family, it may ….Continue

Learn Austrian Economics at iTunes

I discovered Austrian Economics through my reading of Freidrich von Hayek. At the time I read Hayek (twice!) there wasn't an "Austrian" I could recite by name, now thanks to the Von Mises institute and I can recite a lot of names and also a lot of Austrian theory. Free markets are the greatest methods of exchange in civil societies and have brought more prosperity to the world in just a few centuries than all the divine rights of kings a….Continue

James Buchanan's "Public Choice Theory"

I briefly alluded to professor Buchanan's "Public Choice Theory" on Thursday, 7 January 2010. As I have been saying for overe a year now it is absolute folly to believe in "reform" or "reform candidates" when it comes to Mordor on the Potomac. Our Constitution is dead and Congress is an ad hoc government making its own rules up as it consumes the population. Here's an excerpt from Buchanan's "Public Choice Theory". "There is a familiar criticism o….Continue

Real Liberty is Protection

The notion of liberty is what this country was built on – but what does the phrase “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” actually mean?  It means freedom is something given to you, but something you have to earn as well – by participating in society. Mike explains that it all stems from our beginnings to break from England.  He adds, “According to the Constitution, you have rights, but only when you participate in the society. Y….Continue
