How Edward Snowden Is Like Thomas Jefferson – Clip of The Day

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Thomas Jefferson was Vice President of the United States of America in 1798. When John Adams put his signature on the illegal monstrosity that was the Alien and Sedition Acts, what did Jefferson do? Did he ask for a redress of grievance to John Adams? Did he appeal to the inspector general: Dude, you can’t enforce this? What did he do? Jefferson initiated and engaged in what some people call a seditious campaign to try and stop the implementation of the Alien and Sedition Acts in his own home state of Virginia."

Yankee Caller Says No One Can Leave This Perpetual Union Of Indivisible States

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s another great little historical inconvenience, Frank. Pennsylvania was also part of a perpetual union according to the Articles of Confederation. You have been living in this union in violation of your own theory, according to the act ratified in November of 1781 called the Articles of Confederation. How does that taste in your pipe?

Interview With Kevin Gutzman On Obamacare

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…

Yankee Northerner Timothy Pickering Supported Secession Of The North

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Pickering sees as a solution that the Northern way of life, in order to be preserved, must separate from the Southern. How inconvenient is that statement!? The Northern way of life is in jeopardy by the Democrats of the aristocratic South, as he called them. This, of course, after what should be celebrated and enjoyed by every American as the greatest revolution in the history of revolutions, the American Revolution.

Where Are The Statesmen? Where Is The 2013 George Washington?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let’s carry the exercise out. Let’s step into the King Dude’s way forward machine. Let’s peek into the future. Let’s say the Boehner Congress caves, as they more than likely will, and they give up on the debt ceiling, give up on the spending, give up on the Affordable Care Act. Then you have resorted to, majorities of people in the several states have relied on the political process that their forefathers left to them to oppose and to correct abuses.

How Did The United States Go From Articles Of Confederation To Constitution?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Well, the Articles of Confederation was most certainly and positively just that. It was a compact. By definition and description it was a confederation, meaning it was a federation of states or political entities that decided, for some express purposes, they needed to confederate together in order to have a better life and existence here after the Revolutionary War.

Stop The Spread Of American Mythology By Studying Her History

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.

Northern Colorado Is Going republican

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – They act as though the State of Colorado owns the citizens of northern Colorado, and that the citizens of northern Colorado are not sovereign political entities in and of their own right should they choose to be. Folks, this is the law of nations. This is what 18th and 19th century republicanism is all about. It is all about gathering together and forming, through geographical boundaries, sovereign entities to practice self-government, republicanism. That’s why we call it republicanism.

Why Was There a Constitution Called For?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - What it takes to be a constitutional expert today is to have gone to a law school on the East Coast, it’s as simple as that, and to have had some professor profess to teach the subject. What they actually teach, if they teach at all, is they teach Supreme Court history. It’s not really Constitution history; it’s Supreme Court history. Constitution history is a fairly straightforward field of study. If one were to undertake a field of exploration in constitutional matters, then you would start with my docudrama, Fame of Our Fathers, and you would first answer the question “Why?” Read more in today's transcript...

He is the author of the book about Charles Carroll of Carrolton, American Cicero, a great book about a forgotten founding father.

Interview With Kevin Gutzman

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In other words, Washington did what Washington always did. He pretended like he didn’t want to be there and he didn’t want anything to do with the proceedings and he just happened to be nominated for this grand position. Then, as he always did, he executed his task with historical flair and brilliance. To talk about this and to help flesh it out and why it was a federal convention is my good friend Dr. Professor Kevin Gutzman, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution and his great book which covers this convention and James Madison’s role in it, James Madison and the Making of America.

Internet Sales Tax – Forget Marketing, Just Get Congress To Pass A Law

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What is this idea that we need a permission slip from the Senate and then from the Congress in order to pass this tax? As I said, follow the money. Where’s the money going? The states don’t want to do this because they know that if they do it, you’re going to revolt. That’s why we have this story in the form that it is today.

The United States Has So Many Laws, It’s Impossible Not To Break Them

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – John, when the law becomes so voluminous that it cannot be known, it cannot be enforced, by definition. Federalist Paper No. 61 written by James Madison, live it, love it, learn it. You’ll read all about Madison saying why the Necessary and Proper Clause must be used very cautiously and judiciously because you don’t want the creation of such a labyrinth of laws that no one can possibly know what it is, and therefore no one could possibly enforce it, or no one could be expected to abide or live under it.

Tyranny And Despair Are As Old As Man

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - My point is, we’re not the first people to deal with this, so let’s just get over ourselves. Let’s just get over our own little hubris and arrogance. Go about living your life. Don’t worry about your friends that you can’t convince. There are always going to be idgets out there and there’s always going to be ignorant people. You cannot control them. You can influence them by your actions. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Let’s Give Up On The Constitution says Mr. Seidman

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - If you’re going to have a written law and you choose not to obey it, why do you have a written law, Mr. Seidman? That’s what I would ask you in return. By the by, what part of the Constitution and the ratification of same is illegal? If you’re going to say that it’s illegal, what I assume that he means is that it was illegal because there was a perpetual union formed by the Articles of Confederation. None of the states at the time bothered to secede from the Articles of Confederation before adopting and acceding to the Constitution. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Mike Explains Why There Is A Written Constitution

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - The people are sovereign. They choose to form a government. They grant some power to that government in writing with a binding document, call it a constitution. When the people that execute the power exceed the grant, then they are removed. It’s as simple as that. If you’re not willing to do that, then good luck with your term limits. Good luck with cutting people’s hands and feet off. Good luck with trying to censor their investments and medical care. Good luck with all that. You will get the exact same result that you have now, but you may have some people that do some fundraising on it and feel really good about it. That is why a written first Articles of Confederation and then a Constitution was chosen as a manner to preserve the people’s liberty.
