Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - I want to read something to you. My good friend Dr. Brad Birzer, professor in history at the Hillsdale College and a gentleman and a scholar in his own right, one of the good guys out there in [r]epublicanism and in conservatism, posts at one of our favorite online blogs The Imaginative Conservative, under the title “A New Dark Age.” He’s writing about T.S. Eliot, who in 1948 assumed that Western civilization was moving inexorably toward a new dark age. Check out today's Daily Clip and transcript for more...

Conservatism – The Most Misused Word In Politics

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I have a very intriguing thought to add to this discussion about intellect and about what conservatives ought to do. As a nonconformist member of the worst generation, I think the major problem we have today is we’re not smart enough to have studied, or we’re not studious to know what words actually mean. We use many words out of context. The most bastardized and abused word out there is the word conservative. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

“Normal” In Modern Society Is No Indicator Of Morals Or Virtues

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Frohnen writing at Imaginative Conservative, a brilliant essay under the title “What is Normal? Culture Wars & the Boy Scouts.” I think this has everything to do with it. Is it even permissible to describe anything as normal today if it’s not really abnormal? Abnormal is basically then the new normal. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Even St. Augustine Didn’t Trust Government

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you’re going to have any chance for survival, you’re going to have to have some foundational things that everyone can agree on and you can build societies and civilizations around, that there’s no disagreement on, or very little disagreement on. Therefore you have a nucleus around which to rally. What is that nucleus today, Twitter? Facebook? What’s the nucleus, the latest immorality of the moment, whatever is fashionable today?

Cicero And The Romans Foreshadow The Fate Of The United States

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – You want to tell me that ancient history and Roman and Greek history is not worth studying, I defy you. He is describing conditions that existed around 50, 60 BC, somewhere around there. He is describing conditions which existed in ancient Rome as they lost their way and stopped being republicans and became Empiricists. The exact same thing has happened here today.

Courage Needs To Go Beyond Facebook and Twitter Updates

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Brad Birzer has an article at The Imaginative Conservative entitled "Reflections on A Republic Divided to the Point of Collapse". In the article, Brad makes the point that our nation has always been divided, much as it is now, and the only time that men from different parts of the country truly work together is when they must sacrifice themselves for the good of the nation, like in a time of war. We're not sure if Brad is trying to make the point that today people need to get out from behind their computers, stop watching Fox News, and actually get out there and do something or not, but it seems that way.

Brad Birzer – Virtue and Christian Gentlemen Behavior are More Important than Politics

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - To me, ladies and gentlemen, if we can start acting more like virtuous gentlemen and conduct ourselves and our own affairs in a Christian gentleman-like manner and be civic in our deliberations like our foreparents were and the great men of antiquity were, then we go a long way towards repairing damage that has been done to our civilization, a lot farther than we ever will, I believe, by pursuing political ends.

What is There to the American Dream Other Than Toasters, Cars, and Houses?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Government is just a tool. People say, “I want to reduce the size and the scope.” If you’re going to reduce the size and the scope, then you’re going to have to enlarge the sphere of virtue. You’re going to have to enlarge the sphere of -- I’m sorry, I have to say this -- chivalry and manliness. Men, you’re actually going to have to be men for once in our lives again. You’re going to have to start putting your foot down and you’re going to have to start running your family as a family. Things will descend from that, from a natural hierarchical order of things. We’re going to have to be the leaders. Check out today's transcript for more...

Congressional Elections are Important in Stopping Obama Also

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When you all go out to vote for "Anyone but Obama" tomorrow, don't forget about the other ways of stopping Chairman MaoBama if he does indeed win. For starters, the Republican party in the House of Representatives will become even more important because they can simply choose not to fund anything like ObamaCare, and with another round of Congressional Elections coming up in 2 years, we'll have another round of "Wisconsin: Spring 2012's." And don't forget about your state government, you'll want to vote for the people there that can protect you from the Federal overreaches, the ones who will fight back. So instead of just going out there and voting for "ABO", look at who else is on the ballot...

Russell Kirk: Restore Religion To Our Culture or Perish

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The great Russell Kirk, the father of the modern conservative movement, who towards the end of his life saw what I just described and said somebody needs to stand up and say something about this. Here’s at least part of what he said. This is a 35,000 word essay. I’ve shared about 400 so far. How about another 400? He’s talking about our culture, Western civilization, the American culture, which is not definable these days unless it’s defined by our infatuation with electronic eavesdropping devices.

How The Industry Works and Why [r]epublicanism Is Our Only Hope

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Politics today is an industry, it is a business, it is The Industry. Why? Because it is an industry, my friends, that has a $3.8 trillion revenue stream, that’s right, $3.8 trillion, our Corporation of America. Hardly anyone says these United States anymore. I’m reading an article right now at The Imaginative Conservative that’s making way too much sense. I wonder where is this discussion in our politics today? Instead of having Obama and Romney and Ryan and Biden and the rest of them cavorting across the countryside, droning on endlessly, and whining and carping and complaining, like in Chicago for example, of why there isn’t sufficient funds to fund our schools.
