Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Thomas Jefferson was Vice President of the United States of America in 1798. When John Adams put his signature on the illegal monstrosity that was the Alien and Sedition Acts, what did Jefferson do? Did he ask for a redress of grievance to John Adams? Did he appeal to the inspector general: Dude, you can’t enforce this? What did he do? Jefferson initiated and engaged in what some people call a seditious campaign to try and s….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I wish it were a news flash, but it’s not a news flash that the welfare state has replaced the charity state and the little laboratories of philanthropy and democracy that de Tocqueville saw when he came here back in the 1820s and 1830s and wrote a book about it called Democracy in America. I think the experiment was doomed to fail as soon as the first bow was breached. We can wax vainglorious all we want to about the magnanimity….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What we need is an alteration in manner of thinking. Manner of thinking today is jingoistic “USA! USA!” as opposed to localistic. I don’t want to say republican or individualistic because individualism is also part of what’s rotten at the core of society today. Daniel Larison has this intriguing post at The American Conservative Magazine last night, “Rejecting Jingoism and Groupthink.” Check out today’s transcript f….Continue
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 – Let me say to you something you won’t hear very many members of the talk radio mafia, a derisive name given to talk radio show hosts by Mary Anastasia O’Grady back in 2008 because radio hosts were refusing to endorse Senator McCain back then. I don’t believe that this juncture in the lives of Americans or of Western civilization in general is that much removed from the similar situations and juncture that were experienced by m….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There was a grand ruler, King George III. He had his own legislative body, two of them. He had Parliament, the House of Lords and the House of Commons. They had English common law. They had an English court system, trials by jury. They had magistrates and constables and what have you. In other words, they had everything that a government would need and did need to administer the daily functions of an empire, and they did admini….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I just found it really fortuitous that I stumbled upon this letter while watching the Snowden clip about the nobility of the federal government and that’s what it was that drew Edward Snowden to it, then tying the whole immigration part of this letter to our current pickle over said immigration, being able to then see that back in 1794, 1795, 1796, just years after the Constitution went into effect, me….Continue

Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Over the last 200 years, laws continue to become more complex and more hidden behind the curtain of secrecy of the American government. When the Alien and Sedition Act of 1798 was passed everyone knew what was in it, it was in the open, and because of that John Adams lost out to Thomas Jefferson in the next election. Fast forward to the War of Northern Aggression and while Lincoln is continuing his fight, the people of the Norther….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – On the 7th of June 1776, ladies and gentlemen, not the 4th of July -- that’s the consummation of the act. The 4th of July 1776 never happens without Richard Henry Lee and the 7th of June. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Milbank rebuffs Bachmann and makes fun of her because she mistakenly identified John Quincy Adams as a founding father. I tweeted this to Milbank and I’ll just reiterate this to the audience. John Quincy Adams WAS a founding father. He may not have been a father at the time of the founding, but he was most certainly a member of that august body of young men who would turn men who were in on the founding. Check out today’s tra….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The patriot ought to be the first one that raises his hand and says: We should be a beacon of peace and liberty to the world, and we should only rear our arms in our own defense, this existential own defense. What we’re doing abroad is unconscionable and would not be something that your average member of the founding father generation would sign off on. As a matter of fact, they would recoil in horro….Continue
