Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Kevin Gutzman:"There is argument over the question exactly how devoid of Christian meaning we should see these kinds of terms as being. One way of understanding [George] Washington’s personal belief, I think, is to skip ahead to his death. His death scene became the grist of a very popular pamphlet. First they bled him. Then they blistered him. Then they gave him emetics. Of course, the word emetic is from the Greek word….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In the same hall, eleven years later, men are meeting to discuss the new plan of government, the Virginia Plan as it’s known. Today is the 19th, so we’re almost three weeks into the discussion over James Madison’s Virginia Plan as offered by Edmund Randolph. It’s around about this time that the New York delegation has about had it with little Jimmy Madison. They’re not very many days away from just walking out and lea….Continue
James Monroe the Republican Hero Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Happy belated birthday to James Monroe. That’s why we started this conversation, because Monroe was one of two continentals that was wounded in the Battle of Trenton. If you’ve heard Times That Try Men’s Souls or if you’ve read about it, you know that it was Monroe with a Colonel William Washington -- no relation to George -- that was the first to exchange f….Continue
James Madison Is Not The Sacred Oracle Of Nullification But Guess Who Is? Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Why should it all just come down to whatever James Madison said?

It seems that you would find other opinions on this and other writings and other things that could help flesh out what it was those that framed the Constitution, and the framers of that document, and those that implemented it, and then those that had to li….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 – Let’s go to the Dude Maker Hotline. Our friend Dr. Professor Kevin Gutzman is on the line. We’re going to talk a little bit about this silliness that the president can actually act unilaterally because the 14th Amendment commands him to do so when it comes to paying the debt of the United States. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I mentioned earlier that today is the anniversary of George Washington’s first inauguration in New York City. It was a very festive occasion. According to some that witnessed the event, it was also an event that was met with an awful lot of trepidation and dis-certitude. People didn’t know what was going to become of this new government they created. Here to fill us in a little bit about the greatness is Professor Dr. Kevin G….Continue
