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. Check o….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Well, open today’s Pile of Prep and you will find a link and a quote to a blog post written by Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan writes at The Dish, which is a website that he -- he used to write for The Atlantic. He went out on his own. He’s one of these guys that’s trying to be an independent and not have to work for the man, as it were. He has a brief piece titled “Can American Conservatism Be Saved?” In the piece we find s….Continue
This Day in Founding Fathers History - Where we bring you important dates in the lives and history of the Founding Generation. One notable birthday on this day in 1727, that of Horatio Gates. Gates was born in England and moved to America at 22, fought during the French and Indian War, and then returned to England. He didn’t return to the U.S. until 1772, at which point he purchased a plantation in Virginia. At the outset of the Revolutionary War, Gates became a brigadier ge….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I think reading some of the great works of the latter part of the 18th century and early part of the 19th century, I think that’s a good place to start. One of the things that I’m learning as I continue to learn and study about this stuff, one of the things I learned is: Who did Madison read? Who was Jefferson reading? Jefferson carried some books around with him in a little leather satchel. I know what two of them were. Hav….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The only way you can really stay the course, I think anyway, is through the exercise of your faith. Just know that this is part of my Lord’s plan for me. I have to execute the difficult parts, as well as the happy parts, with equal fervor and equal cheer, and just be of the belief that this was as it was intended to be. Who am I to say no to the challenge? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I just think people should explore the possibilities, should not be wed to this jingoistic nationalism that we all must be wed to, and ought to think about what’s best for us and our children in your region, where it is you live, where it is that your community is. If it’s not membership in this union that spies on you and taxes you and harasses you and undermines your moral and cultural traditions, then leave it. What exactly ….Continue
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 h….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Jefferson said that republicanism is defined as: a government that is controlled by the people upon which it directly acts. In other words, if you live in a little hamlet anywhere in the United States, you have a town council or city council or alderman, whatever the case may be. Whoever is your direct lawgiver, that is who ought to exercise the most legislative power over your affairs. Why is this concept so hard to understand and wh….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Mike Church's daily Pile of Prep, chock full of Tea Party swan songs and other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125.- "What is the object of human life? The enlightened conservative does not believe that the end or aim of life is competition; or success; or enjoyment; or longevity; or power; or possessions. He believes instead, that the object of life is Love." - Russell Kirk.….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - It’s rumored that Albert Einstein coined the phrase that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. If that really is the definition of insanity -- and I haven’t checked that out with the clinicians and those that study these sorts of ailments of the mind. If that is indeed the definition of insanity, I think it’s fair to say that over the course of the last two or thre….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You might notice in the movies these days they say, “By the power vested in me by the State of Louisiana, I now pronounce you man and wife.” What do you mean by the power vested to you by the state? Marriage is a sacrament. Latin sacramentum, gift, gift from God. It is a religious bond consecrated in the eyes of God. It is a vow made before a representative of God on earth, you know him as a priest,….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - As you heard Daniel McCarthy saying, as I have said many times over the course of the last year and a half, certainly over the course of the last five or six months here, all is not hinged on and is not predicated on the outcome of one single election. There’s a lot of governing that goes on in between those elections that is far more important than just obsessing over one election and the result thereof. We’ve got to get….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - You have people going on The O’Reilly Factor or going on Hardball with Chris Matthews or going on television shows that have no authority to make any decision whatsoever and having to make at-the-moment cases. In other words, we have a fiat government. Fiat is the Latin for “at will.” We have an at-will government. It is what it is when we say that it is; it’s what we say it is at any given moment. If that is what ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio & Transcript - Today's vocabulary word of the day is: Secede. It's from the Latin word "secedere" and means to withdraw, which is what Obama and the United States should be doing in Afghanistan. But we're not allowed to used the word s-word anymore because Lincoln supposedly abolished it. But in the 1800's secede was actually a word that was used quite often: "I'm going to secede to the bathroom" or "time to secede to the living room", and ….Continue
