Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The Bill of Rights was used and created to provide further safeguards for the states against the Feds, just in case the Feds got the bright idea that they wanted to try, as the vulgar phrase goes in 2013, take our guns away. The Second Amendment says: No, you can’t; you’re prohibited from doing it. That doesn’t mean the State of Illinois couldn’t do it. It just means that the Feds can’t do it.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Everyone knows the First Amendment, it's taught to our youths in grade school. Everyone NOW knows the Second Amendment... whether or not they agree with it is another story. But do you know the THIRD Amendment? And the ones that follow it? Most people don't. Although we don't have scientific evidence to back this claim up, we observe many people discussing the First and Second Amendment, and very few discussing the rest. In case you were wondering, the Third Amendment deals with the quartering of troops. How many people in modern day America do you think would be OK with quartering troops? Well, if Boston is any example, it may be more than you think. For more on this, be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already!

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Yesterday, I’m sure you have seen some or all of the president’s wielding of his scepter at his press conference yesterday, asserting he was granting all these insurers and the states this power to alter their plans and basically I guess to ignore what is actually in the Affordable Care Act. I asked you in an email exchange: Is there any precedent for this? Has any president done anything remotely like this? Your answer to that query is? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What remains to be seen is whether or not it does survive the funding mechanism and if it does go into effect.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – But this urban legend that is creeping in about what the commissioners were sent and the delegates were sent to do in Philadelphia, this has got to stop. This is coming from some guy named Rob Natelson, who has allegedly researched this. Apparently he hasn’t actually read any of the commission statements. If you read the commissions, I don’t see how you can take anything else away from them other than don’t go there and do anything other than propose amendments.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Just like with the incorporation doctrine, after I share it, then I am hectored and heckled. My integrity is assailed. Vattel is said to have been some sort of an 18th century quack that no one ever referred to in the United States and you and Gutzman can’t prove that. Then the subject of natural-born citizen is that nobody really cares about this unless it applies to Obama, so you and Kevin need to shut up. That’s basically what I was told yesterday after I read Section 212 from Vattel’s Laws of Nations and it was revealed that Senator Ted Cruz may not be a natural-born citizen and the hopes and dreams of thousands of Cruz well-wishers were dashed on the rocks, so they took it out on me.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you were to ask members of the founding generation, if you were to go back in time, if you could hop in the King Dude’s wayback machine and ask Richard Henry Lee: What do you think about this new constitution deal?
