What Does The Conservative Gentleman Wear In These Modern Times?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When people are wearing flip flops and camo gear... to Mass, what is the Conservative Gentleman to wear? Well, much like in the political realm, there is not specific guide, but we have history to guide us. We can look back at some of the great conservatives, Russell Kirk and T.S. Elliot for example, to see what they wore, which was mostly suits and ties. Many men's styles were created in the 1930's and these styles are not stuck in those times, you can take the clothing of that era, wear it now, and it is very appropriate. We need to have a revolution not only in our morals and values, but also in our dress.

Gentlemanly Virtues Come From Obedience To The Unenforceable

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is a creed that we’ve been talking about for about a year on this show called obedience to the unenforceable. What is obedience to the unenforceable and why does it matter? How would you apply it to Mark Wahlberg? Obedience to the unenforceable is you choose not to do things. You censor yourself. You choose to not use that language that popped into your head and you went: I can’t wait to drop this F-bomb in front of other people. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Alabama’s Paul “Bear” Bryant – The Epitome Of Southern Gentleman

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In his first season, he shows up there in May, at the end of the last school year, sets up his office. He’s told he needs to go to this little town in Alabama to recruit this kid who’s an offensive lineman. So he goes to this little town and can’t find this address he’s looking for. He’s a football coach for a major university, so he’s got a coat and tie on and, of course, his hat. It’s around lunchtime and he can’t find any place to eat.

Ted Cruz Could Learn From Rand Paul How To Be A Statesman And A Gentleman

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is something to be said in terms of your mannerisms, attitude, charisma. It’s something that I think Senator Paul does an amazing job with. I wish Cruz would take some cues from that. Just being so ardently supported by the 15, 20 percent of the people that like you doesn’t win you a presidential election in 2016.

A Culture Of Dollars And Bling And Musical Expletives Is No Culture At All

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – As I said, we don’t have a culture any longer, not writ large. We have an anti-cult. A cult is something you organize around. It is almost always organized around a religion. This is not organized around a religion unless dollars are the religion, or unless bling is the religion, or whatever the terminology is. This is organized around radical autonomy, dubious self-promotion. There is no humility. It’s all about vanity. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Unspoken Laws That (Should) Govern Us

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Where is the "gentlemanness" in PRO football asks Steven Klugewitz? The babseball diamond seems to have stuck to it's honorable traditions, so why not football? I would add, what about DINNER!? Where's the gentleman-like behavior at the dinner table at home AND in public? There are many places where these "unspoken laws" should apply, but modern culture seems to tell us that practically any type of behavior is acceptable (see: Miley Cyrus).

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…

Forget The Boy Scouts Of America, Bring On The Scouts Of Saint George

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Back to this controversy over the Boy Scouts of America. I guess they think that they’ve snuffed this thing out and that’s the end of it. They apparently don’t know how those that have been radicalized and those who pursue these sexual equality movements, they apparently have not read what it is that these people’s ultimate goal is. And they apparently do not know that these particular individuals, however loosely or concretely they are organized, do not take no for an answer and they will never stop. The assault will continue, as Jefferson said ad infinitum, forever and ever. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Tiger Woods – Virtuous Gentleman Or Cheater?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Lots of controversy from Augusta National this weekend. Again, in the pursuit of virtuous behavior, Nick Faldo, on Saturday morning, called for Tiger Woods to drop out. He should “do the manly thing” for the rules of golf and quit, said Faldo.

The State That Booed The Golden Rule Again Chooses Mark Sanford

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – While it is always ill-advised and inadvisable to cheat on your wife, violate your oath, lie, do other forms of cheating, steal, whatever the case may be, we cannot deny that there is available to us mercy. Without mercy, the human condition would cease to exist as any manner or form of an organized society, because once you’ve sinned, you’re kicked out.

The Extinction Of The American Male

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We’ve all bemoaned the fact that there seem to be fewer and fewer young gentlemen out there. We’ve all bemoaned the fact that the clowns that are in movies like Hangover are not the exception in our day and age, they’re the rule. There are fewer and fewer young men that you see out there that you want to say: That’s a fine young man. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Boys Need To Be Taught How To Be Good Men

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is important stuff because this is the kind of instruction that young men are not getting today, and if they are getting it, they’re not getting it in high enough quantities or not getting it in a repetitive manner. They’re learning all kinds of things about recycling. They’re learning all kinds of things about homosexuality. They’re learning all kinds of things about animal rights and global warming and all this stuff, but they’re not learning how to be young men. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Earl of Chesterfield: Letters to His Son

Mandeville, LA -For the last 100 years or so, men have ceded their masculine powers both physical and mental to women who are, truth be told, are biologically inferior in both conditions when it comes to raising and grooming the next generation of Gentleman/Statesman. Please note that the preceding does not preclude a strong and necessary female role in young men's lives, quite the contrary, it merely reassigns the roles as they were traditionally practiced. A key component of this process are the scholarly works and mannerisms that engender the disciplined ethic a Gentleman must acquire and then cultivate his entire life. Fortunately for us we have several written resources that promote and describe this process. One of these is the "Letters to my Son" series written by the Earl of Chesterfield to his son. We will add as many of Chesterfield's letters as quickly as we can and provide cataloguing and easy access as we go in the hopes that you, Dear Reader, will share them with your sons. - Mike Church

Patrick Henry – Statesman And Christian Gentleman

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – My interest is always piqued with people’s fascination with Henry. Their fascination with him just comes from one speech, the “Give me liberty or give me death” speech. The “Give me liberty or give me death” speech is a great speech, but there’s no transcript of this. No one ever wrote this thing down. He spoke, in what we would call today, extemporaneously. He didn’t have any notes. He didn’t have a script. He just stood up and started yammering. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Happy Birthday John C. Calhoun!

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - John C. Calhoun was born on this day in the state of South Carolina. He was an achieved and accomplished man and, politically, they would be the envy of men today. He was not only a statesman but he was also a great political thinker, which there were several around that time, but what separated him was his virtuous behavior and his Christian Gentleman-like attitude. Russell Kirk writes about this in his book "Roots Of American Order", about how you cannot have Law, without Order and how there are no laws without morals. So the men writing and enforcing the law must be of a higher moral standing, of which Robert C. Calhoun held himself to those standards.

We Don’t Always Have To Agree – That’s What Makes Life Fun

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I take great comfort in knowing, too, that during this week when you and I are reminiscing and recalling what part of the ten years you may recall, the good times and memories, and of course the bad, we should have heated conversations. That’s what we do here on this show. We do not swim with the sharks. We have our own stream that we swim in. That’s why we unplug the matrix cable out of the back of our heads. That’s why we’re different. That’s why we’re [r]epublican. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

American Citizens Can’t Bear Military Arms, But The Syrians Are Being Given American Military Arms

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here it is, “U.S. Steps Up Aid to Syria, Pledging $60 Million.” This is insanity, absolutely insane. It is incomprehensible, just like the big news last night. John “Rambo” Kerry on one of his first missions overseas, what’s he doing? He’s getting the old company checkbook out and writing a $250 million check that you and I have to cover so that Egypt can have some foreign aid. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Money Is Not The Purpose Of Life, The Transcendent Is The Purpose

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Money is not transcendent. I’m not so naïve to think you don’t need it and some manner of wealth in order to survive, or in some instances in order to share it with those who may be temporarily or permanently less fortunate, is a good thing. Without that Transcendent there, all these things that are based solely in dollar signs and dollar amounts are fleeting. They don’t last. Such is our government.

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.

Ted Cruz – Tea Party or Neocon Internationalist?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - This is a controversy that happened yesterday between Senator Hagel, Senator Inhofe, Senator Cruz and I think Senator McCain is involved or maybe Senator Nelson at some point. This is over the nomination of Senator Hagel to be Secretary of Defense. If you haven’t heard this, it’s quite acrimonious. You’re going to hear one senator accusing another of some manner of un-gentleman-like behavior. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Mike Schools The Children On Accuracy And Being Gentlemen

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I’m sitting there and I’m in a very not-wealthy section of the City of New Orleans, similar to ones I’m sure you can find around where you live. I’m moved by the fact that there are these beautiful children here who someone along the way decided not to abort. I guarantee you there were economic circumstances that many of those children were born under that would suggest, especially if you’re listening to East Coast libs, that they should have been aborted, yet there they were.

Getting Men Back as Household Leaders is the MOST Important Thing

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - We used to have men of arts and letters and that’s what they were known for. Today we have demagogues that yell and scream and holler and hurl names and insist we look at the world through that sort of a jaded lens, that there is only right and wrong in the human realm, that there doesn’t seem to be a right and wrong that’s attached to a godly realm, that natural law somehow just came here and does not answer to supernatural law -- another one of these inconsistencies with the anarchists and libertarians out there where I find a difference. This is one of the things that was pointed out by the great writers of the 20th century like Russell Kirk, T.S. Elliott, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis.

TradCons Get Butts Kicked… Should Go On The Offensive

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I think this is probably the valid question these days: What would a healthy conservatism look for? We’ve been fighting from a defensive posture for over 50 years now. You’ve got to get on the offense here, which is why nullification, interposition, secession, hold-out and the kind of people that are going to practice republicanism who would do nullification and interposition, or would consider rethinking the union, are going to need that virtuous, traditional conservative base. When I say base, I don’t mean base of people, I mean base of thinking, living, acting, a Christian gentleman. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Honey Boo Boo Nation Undermines Gentlemanly Society To Our Detriment

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - The never-ending quest that we seem to be embarked on for equality is antithetical or anti-nature at its core. There is no equality. This holy grail that we seem to be possessed of, that everyone likes to run around and prattle on about their rights and “We’ve got to have equality.” Why? Nature is not in balance, it never is. Nature is always out of balance. The difference between the night and the day, as the old adage goes, points out that inequality. It illustrates we’ve come to live with night and day. We’ve built houses to shelter us at nighttime from wild beasts, haven’t we? This is a lot of discussion about the natural order of things and about how it was the aristocratic Southern gentleman that showed the highest ideal of what man could be in the South, and I suspect in the North, too, just in a different manner, that others could aspire to. Where are those gentlemen today? Are they leading families? Are they encouraged? Are they educated to lead families, to be young men of gentlemanly virtue? Or are they educated to go out and find a Honey Boo Boo? Check out the rest in today's audio and transcript....
