How Does a Conservative Really See The World? Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "To me, at some point we have to get down to not just who said what, who did what, what does it mean for you and me, but how do these people think? That’s really what I wanted to do with this book and say: What is the philosophy, in other words, how does a conservative or a liberal really see the world?"

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – He wrote this piece titled “10 Things You Should Know About the American Founding – On this Fourth of July, 238 years after Congress declared independence from the British Empire through the Declaration of Independence, it’s well worth reminding ourselves of a number of things about the Founding era.” I’m not going to do the first six. We’ll do seven, eight, nine, and ten. Check out today’s transcript for t….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "So when we welcomed Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn to the United States and he was counseling us about how God had been kicked out of all life in Russia and that was the principle problem, that the churches were all razed and God was stricken from the public record or the public dialogue, was Solzhenitsyn being some sort of a radical nutjob that should have been shouted down and told: Hey, man, you need to get with the new religion, Aleksan….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "What you just said was sensationally, it’s appropriate, it’s pertinent to today, and I don’t think there are very many of us that are even capable of understanding that without sitting here and reflecting and pondering. What he said, folks, was that he thinks Burkean conservatism is only relative to the time that you live in or the era you live in, which would mean that it’s inappropriate to cite Edmund Burke and Burkean ….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "We have the third edition of the American history quiz posted at FranklinsOpus.org. Where do you get this story that makes up the question about the Maginot Line? I had never heard that. That’s one of the ones I did not know. I’m looking at it going: Oh, crikey. I’m just gonna guess." Check out today’s transcript for the rest… Begin Mike Church Show Transcript Mike: You have to tell me, how did you find out,….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – As far as your third party, I don’t have the answer to your political question, because I don’t think that politics is going to solve or is capable of solving any of this. If it were, then I would think since the Roman polis was created, or if you want to go back to the Athenian republics of ancient Greece, I would think over the ensuing almost 3,000 years, man would have figured this out, don’t you think? I would say that po….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This story here in The Atlantic, Mike Lee, talking about how the GOP has got to part with spin and personality. Well, now, Lee is wise to say this because spin and personality are what? What is that? That’s sophistry. It means nothing. All it does is allow people to use the term “conservative” to personally and monetarily benefit from it. In other words, it’s nothing more than a marketing slogan. He’s right. Check o….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "It's not Red Sox Vs Yankees, it's Conservationists Vs Liberationists." Conor Friedersdorf has an interesting post at The Atlantic website. It operates under the title, “What Parts of the New Deal Do ‘True Conservatives’ Want to Scrap?” I can answer that question in three notes. How about the whole thing? How about we start with Wickard v. Filburn? How about that, Conor? If we can eliminate Wickard v. Filburn, t….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I think part of the conservative exercise ought to be contemplation. Think about this. We derided and stood steadfastly against, mocked and impugned, and called every name in the book that we could to those “liberals” who promoted the hysterical idea that I talked about yesterday on the show and talked about three years ago on the show, that we had to have this thing called Obamacare. Check out today’s transcript for the res….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What she’s talking about is not conservative or conservatism. She’s talking about Republicanism. There is party mantra. There is party dogma that makes one a Republican. This is why the term RINO, Republican in name only is still so popular, [mocking] “We gotta get rid of them damn RINO Republicans” and why it is a problem. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In reflecting on what was happening in France in the French Revolution -- Burke was a cosmopolitan kind of guy, so he was an admirer of other countries and of other cultures. He was an admirer of the French. No one wanted to see what happened in France happen. Burke was one of the few that had the intellectual as well as spiritual knowledge and intellect to be able to respond in a manner that would st….Continue
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….Continue
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 art….Continue
