Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - On today's show, Chuck Thompson, author of "Better Off Without 'em" joined Mike for a friendly discussion about secession.

Mandeville, LA - One of the casualties of the recently concluded "federal" elections was the discussion of monetary policy, this was NOT a Thomas Jefferson moment.

Scalise Needs To Pick “Allies” Closer To Home, Like Texas

Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - Why is Rep. Steve Scalise spending an Israeli lobbyist’s money? Oh wait, he only accepted the “gift” as a way to spare taxpayers the expense of funding his seven day trip to Israel to meet with Israeli leaders. Gee I wonder why he’d want to do that? Well it may have something to do with his embrace of “our closest ally in the region” which thus necessitated his immediate rejection of the deal negotiated with the Iranians over thei….Continue

I want to revisit with Patrick J. Buchanan. He was writing about this exact subject. It was known back then that Kerry and company were trying to negotiate some kind of deal with the Iranian mullahs.

The last caller at the end of the hour agreed with the point that the president has sent his secretary of state over there on behalf of the United States Senate basically to negotiate what amounts to a treaty over this. That doesn’t mean the Senate has to ratify it. If Ms. Ayotte and Mr. Graham and McCain and all the rest of them, if they’re so w….Continue
