Ghosts of Founders Past Reveal Our Future: John Taylor on Congress

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Let's not pretend that everyone in the House of Representin' is fighting against the debt ceiling being raised for all the right reasons. Oh, there are certainly a few, but for the most part, it's not because they are DEFENDERS OF THE CONSTITUTION, they are doing for their own selfish reasons. But it's always been like that... well, maybe not the FIRST Congress, but very soon after that, and John Taylor of Caroline witnessed it happening. Why does it matter? Because in his book, Tyranny Unmasked, John Taylor saw our future, he witnessed what we were going to become now. If only we had listened to John Taylor, we may not be in the situation we are in now.

How is the Millenial Generation Going to Fix This Mess? Will They Even Bother?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - National Journal columnist Ron Fournier thinks the ObamaCare "shutdown" spells the end of the GOP, the status quo of the DNC and the rise of "millennials" but if Noah Webster were still alive, I imagine the caterwaul of four letter words he might use to describe the "millennial." Time Magazine gave the "Me Me Me" generation a cover story last May and concluded, "They’re narcissistic. They’re lazy. They’re coddled. They’re even a bit delusional. Those aren’t just unfounded negative stereotypes about 80 million Americans born roughly between 1980 and 2000. They’re backed up by a decade of sociological research." Fournier can be forgiven for not reading Time that week but there is no contrition for elevating the millennials to the Madisonian heights of "revolutionary".

What is Conservatism? According to Russell Kirk It’s A Set of Principles, Not Party Politics.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Conservatism isn't about political parties or even politics in general. Simply put, it's about conserving the good things in one's life. Conserving your family, relationships with friends, culture, history, community, nature, etc. You wouldn't try to conserve the bad or evil things in your life would you? Russell Kirk gives us ten principles that we should follow as conservatives, and not too surprisingly if you listen to this show, none of them directly involve politics. They can certainly be applied to the way you think about politics, and they should, but they aren't a set a laws you must follow to be a member of the GOP.

Defenders of the Constitution… Is There Anybody Out There?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - How many TRUE statesmen have their been recently? True defenders of the Constitution. Ted Cruz? Nah. Ron Paul is about the only one that we can actually think of. And it doesn't matter if these guys are Republican or Democrat. Why anyone would want to jump on board with any member of the current political class is beyond comprehension. Almost everyone is there to toe the party line, be it Republican or Democrat, and this is exactly what the Founders warned us about. They warned us about Party politics and the "political class", so it's up to us to keep an eye on the governing body, we are the ones who need to keep THEM in check.

Paul Ryan’s $3.9 Trillion Budget Is The New “Conservative” Benchmark

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Please explain to me, or to people that think like me: Where then is the hope for a federal solution to any of this? The fact of the matter is, sans a federal balanced budget amendment, the current crisis we suffer under is only going to become more insufferable. Since we know what they’re doing to the dollar and we know what’s happening to real wages, you can see the decline written on the proverbial wall. " Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

If Obamacare Individual Mandate Is Unconstitutional Socialism, Why Isn’t It The Same When The GOP Proposes It?

Either the ObamaCare mandate is unconstitutional in all its forms or its not. Here we are faced square again with something that continues to be, I think, a subject worthy of consideration. Is the conservative endeavor and are conservatives to adopt and begin an embrace of and a promotion of their version of how a welfare state ought to run?

Conservative, Tea Party, And Republican Are Not Synonyms

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s the headline from the magazine post: “Why the Tea Party Can’t Govern.” Here, let me give you the tease, “Something is seriously wrong with conservatism.” Let me stop right there. Damn skippy, yeah! Hello!? Conservatism is an advertising slogan. That’s what’s wrong with it. Anything that becomes an ism, you might say, is probably, going back to Frohnen’s post about “What is this Thing called Virtue?” is something that is not going to produce results that people think it’s going to produce.

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.

It’s Harder To Distinguish Ideology From Truth In Modern Journalism

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The ideological presentation of news is, in and of itself, in my personal opinion, a perversion of anything that you would call journalism. I am perfectly comfortable with, fine with, and have no beef towards anyone that presents news in a partisan and blatantly ideological fashion so long as they acknowledge that that’s what they’re doing. Where I have a problem and where I think people are being misled and lied to is people that present it as if it is objective truth. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Senator Rand Paul – Shrewd Politician And Statesman

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The question that Michael raises in terms of with Rand Paul endorsing Mitch McConnell for reelection in Kentucky, we do have the conflict that arises and the question in terms of: Do we want politicians that we elect to work within the inside political gamesmanship of DC? Is that what Senator Paul is doing? Or is that viewed as a capitulation of their ideals because they are then becoming a part of the problem? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

If You Want Demagoguery And GOP Party Lines, You Won’t Get It With Mike Church

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – One of the notes I got yesterday was just hysterical. I want to spend the first segment of the program here, the first couple moments, discussing not Senator Cruz but what it is that we’re doing here on a daily basis and how it applies to you. The perception out there -- I don’t seem to be able to control this. I don’t want to control it. I don’t seem to be able to alter the course of the following discussion. Because the course cannot be altered, I have to deal with the course that has been laid out. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

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.

Beltway GOP Strategies Include Congressional Theater And Shooting Self In Foot

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Buchanan’s point of view, and this is pretty much the point of view that you have heard me enunciate or share with the audience over the last two weeks is that you were elected to do something. You have a moral and principled obligation to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

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…

They Love It, They Love It Not – Republicans Need To Pick A Side On Obamacare

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There are a lot more of the Ryans and Boehners and Cantors than there are of the Gohmerts, Amashes, and Massies. Legislatively speaking, you don’t have a leg to stand on. The other part of this is, and I’ve been pointing this out for the last two and a half years: Why are people like Paul Ryan and others running around saying they have parts of the Affordable Care Act that they’re absolutely enamored with?

Obama Has Forgotten Gingrich And The Last Government Shutdown

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There’s President Obama out there saying [mocking] “Never before in history has anyone ever used leverage to try not to raise the debt ceiling.” Gingrich is out there I guess listening to this, raising his hand and saying: Um, excuse me, we did. In 1995 and 1996, we did. I have the email blast from former Speaker Gingrich. It was an interesting read. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
