Of course, the story goes that Lincoln refused to see the commissioners because he knew that his force had been sent down to Charleston Harbor. It is believed by many that he was hoping that there would be a confrontation and he could use that as an excuse to threaten the South Carolinians with a full invasion and force them to undo their recent secession and rejoin the Union. That was the plan.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I haven’t done anything wrong, but I’m not going to tell you about what I didn’t do wrong. There’s something just a little bit disingenuous about that statement, just a wee bit. I haven’t done anything wrong, but I refuse to tell you about the things I didn’t do wrong. She then proceeded to get up and leave. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – That’s what we did with Is Davis A Traitor? It is, in our opinion and in the opinion of many people, the greatest book ever written about not only was secession a constitutional right prior to the war of 1861, but on the Constitution as a compact and the theory behind it and the facts of the case. There’s even a chapter in the book that’s called “The Facts of the Case.” It’s just a marvelous book that’s been lost to time. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I was told by my financial advisor David Simpson: Okay, Mike, I want you to do half of what you do, your brilliant creativity, lying to the public and telling them what they want to hear -- like for Red State Gal and Blue State on Twitter yesterday -- and then the other half of the time you can pursue the truth. You have to lie half the time in order to make a living. That’s what we’ve come to here. I don’t want to do that. There’s just something wrong with that. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let’s go to the Dude Maker Hotline. Let me get an update on what it is that’s going on in the great State of Oklahoma. My friend Mark Kreslins is on the line. Mark, you actually are a newcomer to Oklahoma, yet in the first year, you rabble-rouser, you’ve already got people to draw sides and a line in the sand over Obamacare.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I am not of the opinion that television networks exist for any purpose other than taking the capital that was invested therein and returning it with a profit or dividend to those that invested. That is my understanding of why there are television networks. There may be television networks that purport to help you raise your children by providing wholesome family education and giving them access to the kind of programming that you cite. Again, I am not personally aware of any such programming that is totally directed at the children. Check out today’s audio and transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - On today's Founders TV show we have special guest Professor Brion McClanahan discussing the legality of Secession. You can find his article on the subject right here at americanconservative.com. We agree that Secession is legal, but is it still too soon for the American public? Mike and Brion also discuss what will happen to the average American if the Federal security blanket is swept out from underneath them. There are many people who rely on the Federal money and cannot even balance their checkbook without it, what happens to them if their state secedes? Listen to this clip from Mike's interview with Brion and check out the full interview and more on today's Founder's TV. Grab a Founder's Pass here if you don't already have one...

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Bob Cesca has an interesting article at the Huffington Post on the illegality of Secession, equating it to goblins and unicorns. Well, we have some other writers and articles to challenge you with, specifically an article by Doug Bandow at the CATO Institute entitled "The Great Secession" and our friend Brion McClanahan's (who will be on Founders TV tomorrow) article "Is Secession Legal" at the American Conservative. The debate at the center of all of these articles is the legality of Secession, and we say resoundingly: YES! There is no doubt about it. Even though Bandow and McClanahan write in favor of Secession, even they still think that the American public is not yet ready for it, but here at Mike Church Studios, we believe that the American People have warmed to the idea and ARE ready for it. For more on this and the rest of Founders TV and This Day in Founding Fathers History be sure and grab a Founders Pass if you don't already have one.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Brion McClanahan has an essay that is posted at The American Conservative Magazine today. In his essay “Is Secession Legal,” at one point in here, he gets to a great historical document that has not even been introduced on this show. It is Abel Upshur’s A Brief Enquiry into the True Nature and Character of Our Federal Government. Upshur wrote this in response to the lunatic Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story. The fact that this guy ever had a vote on the high court is a testament to how bungled and screwed up Article III of the Constitution was and remains. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - On today's Founders TV show we were joined by special guest Brion McClanahan, author of the brand new "Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes". Brion discusses how he predicted the outcome of the election an entire year ago, when he said that if Romney was nominated, Obama would win and he puts this in a historical context, it's not the first time it's happened. But one of the major problems is who will the big R Republican party nominate in four years? Well, they're talking about people like Marco Rubio when they should be talking about Rand Paul.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - Today on The Imaginative Conservative website, Clyde Wilson, the inimitable Clyde Wilson, one of the great living legends of Southern literature -- you may know that he co-wrote the book with Brion McClanahan Forgotten Conservatives in American History. Wilson writes this about the great Russell Kirk, the father of the modern conservative movement, a man that I think many of us would do well to emulate, to study, and to study what Kirk studied...
