For The Umpteenth Time, You Cannot “Fix” The Federal Leviathan, You Cannot “Fix” Politics, You Must Secede

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 politics is not something that solves anything. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Senator Mike Lee, Talking True Conservative Sense And Reason

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.

So Conservative Hysteria Is Good But Liberal Hysteria Is Bad?

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.

True Conservatives Aren’t Hurting The GOP Because The GOP Doesn’t Represent Them

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…

Edmund Burke – The Age Of Chivalry Is Gone

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 stand the test of time.

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…

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...

Charles Lee Saw The Writing On The Wall – Now America Is Despotic And Tyrannical As Predicted

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The reason I share with you Lee’s letter is because Lee sees the writing on the wall if arrogant men, if designing men are not prevented from obtaining too much power. This is exactly what has transpired because it is the natural course. This requires virtuous statesmen to stop this, to inveigh against it, to warn about it, to protest mightily, to organize and bring people of good conscience together to say no.

Community Rises Above Inequality And Endures

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – As we grow further and further and further away from any shared theological experience. We grow further and further away from any possible chance to be knit together as communities ever again. I don’t think that this plays itself out until there’s anarchy. I just think we’re in a phase right now, an epoch, and it’s our job as good Christian citizens to fix it. You can only fix it by leading by example, as I’ve often told many callers.

Phil Mickelson Is A True Gentleman Athlete And Role Model

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let’s stop right there. Some of you are going: Okay, what’s the point? Is there a punchline here, Mike? Well, there actually is. I have heard others who have won golf or football or baseball or basketball championships that say it’s the greatest moment of their lives. Mickelson said, and he repeated it, said it twice that it was the greatest moment of his career. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Claes Ryn Warns Of The New Jacobins And True Democratic Mob Rule

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Constitutionalists are raised, structured, socialized, you could say institutionalized to be constitutionalists. This does not happen much any longer, which is why our United States Constitution can be as seemingly useless and not referred to or deferred to as you would like to see it or as it once was.

British Tories and Conservatives Today, Burkes of a Feather?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Be sure and check out today's Founders TV as Mike compares and contrasts British Tories (who are probably not as evil as you think from "1776, Revolution, killing Americans" time) to modern day conservatives. We also go over what conservatives in the 1950s should have been studying: William F Buckley or go back to the teachings of Edmund Burke? Many Conservative Americans of the time didn't feel like they were descended from an English-man like Burke, but his writing were very influential to many of the Founders, including James Madison.

Detroit Going Belly Up And Tea Party Sinks To New Low

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Today’s conservatism requires you to do very un-conservative things. It requires you to hold very un-conservative thought. It requires you to promote things that Christian conservatives should never be promoting, and that is a nonstop engagement in war. Making war and believing that the strength of your republic, as many of you conservatives like to call it, is to be found in your military is not a conservative endeavor.

George Carey – Can Traditionalists Regain The Republican Party?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - This goes out to you people out there that agitate this and promote this, and you do so on a daily basis, if not hour by hour. [mocking] “We gotta take the party back. We gotta kick these RINOs out.” As I have been trying to preach to what I hope is an expanding choir out there, that is another fool’s err. Carey explains it in writing in a manner in which I think is congruent with the way we’ve been talking about it. It’s brilliant prose. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Traditions From First Principles MUST Be Defended – Caller Paul

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Paul in Virginia considers himself a "Burkean" (that's Edmund Burke for any beginners out there) and believes that the First Principles laid down by the Catholic Church are the ones that must be defended. And the Federal Government, who comes in with their "better" way of doing things, don't know anything about tradition or the metaphysical principles of the church. I'll let Paul speak for himself in today's transcript...
