Is There Any Place For True Conservatism?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Is there anything worth conserving anymore, anything? I don’t mind having the debate, but it seems to me that the continued issues of these provocative things is in and of itself exactly what we used to accuse the progressives of. You just keep pushing and pushing until you finally get your way. You finally break down every conservative on earth and you finally make conservatives start acting like liberals or acting like progressives. Now we have conservatives that are doing the exact same thing. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Revisionist History, Lincoln, And The Gettysburg Address

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – By the bye, Richard Gamble, a friend and colleague of Dr. Brad Birzer’s at Hillsdale had a piece posted last week at The American Conservative Magazine entitled “Gettysburg Gospel.” I did not know this. Did you know that some of the quotes that Lincoln tossed into the American scripture were actually taken from a journal? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Conservative, Tea Party, And Republican Are Not Synonyms

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s the headline from the magazine post: “Why the Tea Party Can’t Govern.” Here, let me give you the tease, “Something is seriously wrong with conservatism.” Let me stop right there. Damn skippy, yeah! Hello!? Conservatism is an advertising slogan. That’s what’s wrong with it. Anything that becomes an ism, you might say, is probably, going back to Frohnen’s post about “What is this Thing called Virtue?” is something that is not going to produce results that people think it’s going to produce.

Real Christian Charity Is Needed Today

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In other words, what the original progressive charitable people wanted to do was eliminate all the slobs out there, eliminate all the people that weren’t them. In other words, let’s build a master race right here in the United States. We won’t have any poor people and we won’t have to have any philanthropy or charity. The problem with charity is it creates more poor people, in other words, and more people in need. Screw the least of these, which explains the attitude, the death culture behind abortion.

Enough Already With The “USA! USA!” Jingoism, Let’s Try A Little Localism

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What we need is an alteration in manner of thinking. Manner of thinking today is jingoistic “USA! USA!” as opposed to localistic. I don’t want to say republican or individualistic because individualism is also part of what’s rotten at the core of society today. Daniel Larison has this intriguing post at The American Conservative Magazine last night, “Rejecting Jingoism and Groupthink.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Patrick Deneen Asks A Great Question: “What Is An American Conservative?”

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is an essay at The American Conservative Magazine website. [mocking] “Mike, you were hard on The American Conservative Magazine yesterday.” Yeah, well, I was just being honest. I don’t ask for jingoism from anyone else, so I don’t expect that anyone expects they’re going to get jingoism or Homerism from yours truly. In any event, The American Conservative Magazine’s Patrick J. Deneen posts what I think is an article -- this is not internet folly, not fantasy, not made up and comprised of a bunch of forwarded, hackneyed emails that aren’t true. The title of the piece is “What Is an American Conservative?” That is a great question. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

What Did You Think Decreasing The Size And Scope Of Government Would Look Like?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Again, I fail to see why anyone that participates in, advocates for, and has been dreaming about shrinking the federal leviathan, why you are not taking the chance or the opportunity to hit the ramparts, to dig yourself in, and to encourage those that have a vote or say-so in this to hold the line. Folks, this is the battle we’ve all been waiting for, isn’t it? What did you think it would look like? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Can You Have A Gay Pride Parade Without Nudity?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you’re going to have a public parade and there are going to be children cavorting about in a downtown area, you cannot very well have people running around in various stages of undress. If heterosexual people tried to do this, they would be arrested for public nudity or disturbing the peace or whatever the ordinance might be, or just be drummed out of polite society because they acted in poor taste. But say the word gay and all is supposed to be forgiven. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

A Rose Is A Rose . . . Nationalism Is Nationalism

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I have this story here, this opinion piece in The American Conservative Magazine, at amconmag.com. It’s written by Sean Scallon under the title of “The Nationalist Left Rises.” After Scallon goes through a bit of the history of what liberals used to say about the military superstate and what they say today about the military superstate now that Obama’s running it are two totally separate things. Then he gets into the real threat from the nationalist left. This is where the millennial generation comes in. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

U.S. Senators Don’t Support The American People, But Maybe They Support The Muslim Brotherhood

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Remember in the opening remarks, I mentioned when you see film footage on the news today or tonight or whenever of the madness that’s happening in Egypt and you see buildings burning off in the distance, there’s a very good chance that the building that is burning was a fire that was intentionally set by Islamic Muslim Brotherhood lunatics, and that the building in question is probably a Christian or Catholic church. But nothing to see here, citizen, move along. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

A Belief In Secession, Self-Government, and Rand Paul Are Dangerous To The State

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I would say to anyone that harbors this point of view, if you’re so convinced that it was the confederacy that was the antecedent for Hitler’s regime or for Lenin’s regime or for Mussolini’s regime and that’s what gave rise to it, then you might as well go across the next bridge and say it was Madison and Mason and Martin and Sherman and heaven forefend Washington who came up with the original idea.

British Terrorists Who Killed Soldier Are The Same Men We’re Arming In Syria

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There was a woman who was riding in a bus. She sees the British soldier lying on the ground bleeding. She yells for the bus to stop. She gets off so she can go provide first aid. She’s a cub scout leader. Her name is Ingrid Loyau-Kennett. She engages the terrorist who’s still standing in the street with a bloody machete in his hand, blood all over him. She engages him and keeps him at bay, talking and screaming for 20 minutes while the bobbies arrive. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Power Genie Is Out Of The Bottle And Running Amok In The National Government

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I think that the point to be made is that when it comes to the IRS, how is it that they obtained this unbelievable power to do and to perform the tormenting things they are accused of performing, which by the way they do. Same thing with the attorney general. How in dude’s holy name does the Injustice Department acquire the awesome, unbelievable power to be micromanaging and rifling through the phone records of investigative journalists?

Gosnell Trial – United States Is Open For Infanticide

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – So if a baby comes out of its mother’s body and moves, we are to ignore that? We are not to say that that child is alive? Oh, my God! Can we just put a neon sign up above all our ports of entry and say: “United States -- Open for Infanticide”? What kind of a grizzly, ghastly people are we? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Restoring The Constitution Can’t Happen With The Amoral, Atheistic Nitwittery

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I have told you on about a billion and a half occasions, all you can really do is control yourself and what is in your community, or attempt to control what’s in your community, and more specifically in your own local sphere. That means your family, close family, immediate friends and relatives. You can’t possibly hope to effect and cause worldwide change because you desire it and because you think that Jefferson and Henry and Madison and company, that that’s what they did and all they had to do is snap their fingers.

We Have An Empire… Should We Just Face It?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - According to Daniel McCarthy's post at the American Conservative, "How a Federal Republic Becomes an Ideological Empire", little r [r]epublicans and localists need to just drop your delusions, face the facts, and become good little nationalists yourselves. Daniel makes many good points about HOW we got to this point, including how the Founders, especially James Madison, could not have predicted many of the things that were going to happen in the country in the coming years and the safeguards they were trying to create to keep us from having a national government, simply were not enough. But his conclusion, that little r [r]epublicans are delusional and Quixotic in their philosophy and must start thinking more nationally and Empirically is something that we believe is impossible.

The Topless Gal-Qaeda: Combatting Vulgar Behavior with More Vulgarity

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There are less-than-scantily-clad young women of your age who were protesting. I have the story here. Apparently some woman who is a Tunisian nudist artist, whatever that is, was told by the Islamic clerisy there that she could not be a nudist artist anymore. These women, Femen is what they go under the name of, decided to hold a protest outside of the Tunisian Embassy in France. Check out today’s audio and transcript for the rest…

American Greatness Is In Our Communities

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Bill Kauffman writing Friday at American Conservative Magazine, I wanted to share this with you. This has everything to do with [r]epublicanism. Kauffman is also the author of one of my favorite books called Bye Bye, Miss American Empire. It is a treasure trove of republicanism and early and modern efforts at secession and establishing self-government in North America and the United States. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Marco Rubio And His Neocon Buddies Need To Go Back And Study History

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “The idea is America and it still works,” what idea? A proper noun is not an idea. Folks, this is where these American exceptionalists should lose the intellectual thinker, the critical thinker, the person that actually reads, the person that actually contemplates, the person that actually considers, the person who is actually humble, the person who actually believes that history is an ongoing process and the history that is part of your American story is not to be tampered with.

Michael Brendan Dougherty: Pope Francis Maintaining The Status Quo

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I keep hearing the news yesterday about there’s 1.2 billion Catholics around the world. That number was larger. That number was larger a decade ago. That number is shrinking. It’s certainly shrinking in the United States. Why? They keep becoming more progressive. They keep adding things that make the Church more, in American political speak you would say liberal. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Republican Party Is On The Wrong Side Of Foreign Policy

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is a very healthy dynamic and a healthy thing going on, if you’re into these sorts of these things, into party wars. There’s a healthy internecine battle or feud going on for the soul of what you would call today the Republican Party or the conservative party, what people “think” is the conservative party, inside Republican ranks.

If You Don’t Like Perpetual War, You’re A Little Wimp

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Why can’t Republicans, why can’t war hawks, admit the exact same thing? Your devotion to a warlike way of life does nothing more than create more warlike situations. We are in a perpetual warlike situation. By your own admission, we’re not safe. Hell, we’ve spent more money in the last ten years than we’ve spent in almost all years combined as a union, and yet you keep telling us that we’re more threatened and more in peril than we ever have been.

This Is Not The United States Of Israel

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I find this disturbing, that members of the United States Senate seem to be in collusion with a foreign state to the degree that they are with the State of Israel. Where did this idea come from that we, in the United States, must bow down before the altar of any foreign land when we are choosing whether or not to appoint a secretary of defense, state, energy, education?

Paul Gottfried: Americans Are All Socialists Now

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - There’s a guy in a state that’s modestly trying to rein some spending in and the people hate him. They despise him. They want to take him out in a field somewhere near Lancaster and stone him. Don’t hold out too much hope for the renaissance of the states getting involved in this. There are good people in the states. I think that’s where we go back to Utica, back to what Kauffman was saying earlier, like we try to do with our ReFounding Father Society.

Scott McConnell: Rand Joins The Jackals?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Folks, there is no escape from this black hole of corruption and deceit into which all 311 million people in this democracy are being sucked into. For those of you who thought Rand was going to save the day and bail us all out, I am sad and sorry to report that the early returns are in. At the eighth poll in this version of the Kentucky Derby, he is 15 lengths off the pace. Check out today's audio and transcript for the rest...

Pat Buchanan – The GOP’s Obsession With Israel and Iran

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Folks, turn on your radio when I’m not on. You will be drummed over the noggin incessantly with “our biggest ally in the region (Israel)” or the evil and despicable Iran. They threatened to wipe Israel off the map, they threatened to do this, blah, blah, blah. As Buchanan points out, why are you guys so obsessed with this?

Bledsoe and Colonel Grayson’s Case for a Compact on the Constitution

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - There’s just one member of the founding generation saying there are a couple instances that we need this general, central government, but it’s certainly not for all the hysterical reasons that the Federalists are telling us we must have it for. If Colonel William Grayson could only see all the hobgoblins that we must have the general government to present today. If he could only see the microbial world. If he could only see the amoebas and the bacteria and the viruses and all the other things that presume to be out there waiting to attack the people of the several states if their magisterial general government isn’t there to stop them.

How MSM Clobbered DeceptiCONS and Mike Church Show was Vindicated

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I would just like to remind you, those of you that called me a traitor, treasonous, seditious, idiot, imbecile, name your pejorative, because we refused to buy into the yard sign caucus and instead stuck with the poll or polls. We told you you should buy into this because this is telling you your campaign is failing and you’re not going to win. We’ll accept all of your apologies because we know it was in the heat of battle and a larger, more magnanimous man should accept contrition from others. I ask for contrition often. I don’t always get it from you people but I ask for it. I’d be happy to accept yours because it was just a fit of passion. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Interview with Daniel McCarthy: Future of Conservatism Post-Romney

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Yesterday, Mike interviewed Daniel McCarthy from The American Conservative Magazine on the the future of conservatism post-Romney, here's a quote from that interview and you can find the rest of the interview right here at mikechurch.com, "It’s not really the case that everything is constantly changing and conservatism has to therefore have no principles and float free on the ocean, so to speak, and keep transforming itself. It is a case, unfortunately, that even in a constitutional republic -- and unfortunately we’ve moved away from being a strict constitutional republic and become much more of a sort of plebiscitary democracy, a mass democracy. In a government like that, unfortunately, there is a very, very large amount of change. Conservatives have to be aware of that, and they have to be aware of it sort of on two levels: not only on the superficial level of seeing what’s actually happening, seeing how people are in fact voting. If people are voting for things we don’t like, we have to acknowledge that and be able to persuade them. We have to address them where we are. "

Mike Passes on Johnson Vote For Abortion Reasons

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - For those of you that think that we have been shilling and promoting third party and promoting Gary Johnson simply because we have covered him and giving him some respect -- he is running for the office of the presidency. As I said, this gentleman is a major player and should have been a more major player in this. I just think it’s fair that you should have all the information that you can have at your disposal to make your decision. Johnson will not be my choice. It is because of the choice, because of his position on abortion. I understand where he’s coming from. I can respect people that have that position, but that doesn’t mean that I have to vote for him and that I have to support him. Let me just get that out. For the rest check out today's transcript...
