Malvasi – Consumer Credit Society Impoverishes Wealth And Soul

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "According to the Reuters News Agency, the Sparkasse Bank in Chemnitz recently issued a MasterCard adorned with the hoary visage of Marx himself. So, now you can get a MasterCard Karl Marx edition. Doesn’t this play right into Marx’s adage that the capitalist would sell the very rope that would be used to hang himself?"

Solution To Big Government: Do What We Must Do, Not What We Should Do

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – People usually say: We need to do what can be done. No, maybe we ought to do what must be done. What must be done is much of this must stop. We don’t need to reform it. We don’t need to tinker around the edges. Much of it needs to stop. That really is truly the last, best, greatest hope on Earth for some form of freedom and genuine freedom and genuine human liberty to be experience. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Public Education Is Designed To Create Workers, Not Thinkers

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We have education systems today and we all agree the education is not to make better Christian young men and women of great virtue and great promise and great potential. We have an education system that is designed and specifically and explicitly constructed to do what? Train the next generation of workers. We all say it all the time.

“Normal” In Modern Society Is No Indicator Of Morals Or Virtues

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Frohnen writing at Imaginative Conservative, a brilliant essay under the title “What is Normal? Culture Wars & the Boy Scouts.” I think this has everything to do with it. Is it even permissible to describe anything as normal today if it’s not really abnormal? Abnormal is basically then the new normal. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

78,000 U.S. Military Troops Are Stationed In South Korea And Japan

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Patrick J. Buchanan wonders on the pages of The Imaginative Conservative website yesterday just why it is that we have 78,000 troops stationed in Japan and South Korea. There’s no place to trim any of this stuff. Our vainglorious empire cannot be whittled down one iota. The world is relying on the American people’s ability to borrow money and enslave future generations into debt repayment. The world is relying on this for their own defense.

Roger Scruton On Conservatism

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - This is a review of a book written by a guy named Roger Scruton. I’m only going to read a paragraph or so of this because I thought it was insightful given the current discussion about the state of conservatism and whether or not the Grand Old Party is worthy of your time, attention and money any longer.

Courage Needs To Go Beyond Facebook and Twitter Updates

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Brad Birzer has an article at The Imaginative Conservative entitled "Reflections on A Republic Divided to the Point of Collapse". In the article, Brad makes the point that our nation has always been divided, much as it is now, and the only time that men from different parts of the country truly work together is when they must sacrifice themselves for the good of the nation, like in a time of war. We're not sure if Brad is trying to make the point that today people need to get out from behind their computers, stop watching Fox News, and actually get out there and do something or not, but it seems that way.

“A Tale of Two Cités” Two Visions of America… and They’re Both French

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Leo Linbeck III has an article at The Imaginitive Conservative comparing two 19th Century Frenchmen's vision of America, Rousseau and Tocqueville, to our current political situation. It seems that America has been divided in two for a very long time, Tories and Whigs, North and South, Republicans and Democrats... always two differing views on how the country should move forward. So the fact that we're divided right now is nothing new, the Constitution almost wasn't ratified because of the Nationalists (and wouldn't have been if there had been telegraphs). For more on Mike's take on Leo Linbeck's article on Rousseau and Tocqueville, check out the rest of today's Founders TV, and be sure and sign up for a Founder's Pass if you haven't already!

Sobran on Secession: Henry Would be at Arms Already

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I must tell you, ladies and gentlemen, I find more opposition to you people to the idea of the states as sovereign entities than I do among libtards. I get more mail challenging me on the supremacy and the sovereignty of the states that created the Constitution from “conservatives” than I do from liberals. The liberals will just usually, in an unintelligent manner, quote Lincoln or the Civil War. The conservatives that are opposed to this, they go all the way back and say, “No, ’76 never happened the way you and Gutzman and Woods and the rest of your little merry band of Founding Fathers studiers, it never happened that way.” Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Zmirak: Don’t Give in to Dead Murderers Wishes, You Grant Them Posthumous Victory

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - In regards to the Newtown, Connecticut shooting, people trying to attach meaning to these things, we talked about yesterday, sometimes there is no meaning. If there is meaning, the meaning is probably obvious. They’re evil men that desire to do evil things because they haven’t either been taught or they have rejected that evil is to be avoided and evil is to be minimized, that evil is going to cost you a place at God’s table in heaven. Zmirak says here are some of the things that people blame for shootings like in Newtown, the Adam Lanza kid: lax gun control laws, lax divorce laws, violent movies, the culture of death, torture, pornography, worldliness and lack of prayer.

Brad Birzer – Virtue and Christian Gentlemen Behavior are More Important than Politics

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - To me, ladies and gentlemen, if we can start acting more like virtuous gentlemen and conduct ourselves and our own affairs in a Christian gentleman-like manner and be civic in our deliberations like our foreparents were and the great men of antiquity were, then we go a long way towards repairing damage that has been done to our civilization, a lot farther than we ever will, I believe, by pursuing political ends.

Stephen Masty’s Christmas Story on the Real Meaning of Giving

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Not enough happens every year during the celebration leading up to the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Not enough happens every year of the reason for the season. If you’re running around saying “Seasons Greetings” or “Happy Holidays,” exactly what holiday is it -- unless you are celebrating Hanukah, and that begins shortly -- exactly what is the reason for the season? It’s an historical fact that this guy named Jesus Christ was born and lived here 2,012 years ago or so, as we know according to the Good Book. We’re supposed to have traditions. There are reasons why Christmastime and the Christmas season is supposed to be a spiritual time. You’re supposed to reflect on all the blessings that you have, just like Thanksgiving, all the blessings that you have and the things you’re thankful for, and one of them is the atonement of sin.

MIA: Men as Head of Households and Leaders

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You go to a sporting event, any public event, and unless it’s maybe a Neiman Marcus in-store parade, you will see the absence of the American male, the absence of the assertive and domineering American father. You’ll see it everywhere. This is, I think, and I would wager that many people once they’ve unplugged the matrix cable out of the back of their head and they actually witness this, will see this as well. You see this in unruly behavior of children because there is no male around to say no. There are so many instances that you see this in. It’s tragic. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Klugewicz on Lincoln Movies (with and without Vampires)

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - An interesting post at the Imaginative Conservative website today by my buddy Stephen Klugewicz, “Abraham Lincoln, Vampires, and False Idols.” As soon as we reach a certain threshold, as soon as I can convince another 10,000 of you that What Lincoln Killed: Episode I is worthy of your historical dollar investment, then we can start making What Lincoln Killed: Episode II. If you’re wondering why Episode II isn’t forthcoming, it’s because we need ROI on Episode I. There’s a lot of resurgence and interest about old, dishonest Abe. This summer we had the Vampire Hunter movie. It’s next week, I think, the Spielberg Lincoln movie. For more check out today's transcript...

“Mission Impossible” a poem by Stephen Masty

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Stephen Masty posts this poem at The Imaginative Conservative website. I laughed and I cried as I read this last night and I wanted to share it with the audience. It’s great prose. We don’t have enough poetry, which is one of the beautiful things in life that we seem to believe we can do without, unless it is contained in a Bob Seger or John Cougar or Rush song these days. How about some actual written poetry? Here you go.

Michelle Obama Reverses the Role of American Exceptionalism

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - Richard Gamble writes at The American Conservative yesterday, and I believe this is totally relevant, “American Exceptionalisms.” Remember earlier in the show today I played you a clip from a video of Michelle Obama taking the neocon international American exceptionalism version and applying it to home and applying it here to domestic issues. The decepticon, neocon version of this is that if freedom is in peril anywhere in the known universe, then we don’t have freedom here, and therefore we have to beat all our plowshares into swords, we have to wage wars, we have to occupy, we have to empire, police, do whatever is necessary to make sure that freedom is safe anywhere where there’s matter, especially if it’s not in this country. That’s the American mission, okay. Mrs. Obama

Michelle and DNC Love Talking About Domestic Issues… Except For Debt

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Video - Michelle Obama and the rest of the DNC speakers are going on and on about "equality" and "making sure everyone gets a fair chance", but what is the white elephant in the room that no one is mentioning? The DEBT. And let's not leave out the RNC either, they barely mentioned it as well, not to mention how much both parties are spending on their own circuses. So Michelle and the other gals at the DNC can talk all they want about the domestic issues, nothing is going to get fixed until we start talking, and doing something, about the DEBT.
