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

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you were to ask members of the founding generation, if you were to go back in time, if you could hop in the King Dude’s wayback machine and ask Richard Henry Lee: What do you think about this new constitution deal? How do you think this is going to turn out for your posterity and for future generations? He, with others, was mortified. He thought it was going to turn out exactly as it is turning out today and as it began to de….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You see and hear it every day on this show when people call me up and argue with me about incorporation and deny the history. It has to do with this idea that the United States Constitution was sent by God, that it was carried down from Mt. Sinai, which was Independence Hall, carved on stone tablets, and we’re all sworn a perpetual and never-ending oath to uphold and worship it. It was a document, ladies and gentlemen, written by mor….Continue
