This Day In Founding Fathers History – 26 July

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 general, taking command of troops in New York.

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.

Andrew Sullivan’s Take On Conservatism And Whether It Can Be Saved

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 some, I think, worthy discussion. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

We Have To Educate Ourselves As Did The Founders If We Want A New Generation Of Founding Fathers

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. Have you ever pondered the question of what Jefferson or Madison or Taylor or Henry -- I also know what Henry read -- or Washington may have read? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Faith Carried The Founding Fathers Through And It Can Carry Us Through, Too

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…

Americans Lack Imagination For Things Like iPad Schools And Secession

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 is the hang-up about leaving it?

Happy Birthday John C. Calhoun!

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 his book "Roots Of American Order", about how you cannot have Law, without Order and how there are no laws without morals. So the men writing and enforcing the law must be of a higher moral standing, of which Robert C. Calhoun held himself to those standards. For more on Calhoun please check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you don't already have one...

Instead Of Learning From History, Today’s Youth Is Erasing It

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The bad of it is that they’re rejecting all of recorded history. They’re saying the people that came before them were a bunch of racist, hick hayseeds that aren’t worth our consideration. We need to cleanse the history books of them and learn from them because they were wrong. In other words, our foreparents aren’t to be admired; they’re to be relegated to the ashbin of history. This is a point of view that is very dangerous. Check out today’s audio and transcript for the rest…

If Wishes Were Horses, Beggars Would Ride – Just Practice Republicanism

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 why has it been so roundly ignored and rejected by four or five generations of Americans now? Check out today's transcript for the rest...

“Whom the Gods Would Destroy, They First Make Mad” And They’re Right on Schedule

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 three decades, that probably is a very apt description of our daily, weekly, monthly, yearly spectacle which is our general government on decay and on parade.

Scalia and Feds Control Over Marriage is Wrong

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, and a man and a woman, voluntarily choosing to enter into that compact that is made before the eyes of God. It is a religious ceremony. This is where you and your young people should hire me to be your spokesman and you should go along with me on this. You should just butt the hell out of the term marriage. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Capitalism is NOT What Conservatives Think It Is

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - This is an Inigo Montoya moment. It does not mean what you think it does. What you mean to say is free enterprise, that’s what you mean to say. You do not mean to say capitalism. As Thomas Fleming points out at Chronicles Magazine, there is a reason for that. This story is posted in its entirety in today’s Pile of Prep. Here’s what Fleming writes about the use of the term capitalism. As we continue our education together, ladies and gentlemen, let’s read the Earl of Chesterfield, learn a little Latin, read some classic works together, read founders source documents, and let’s get our terminology straight.

Caller Ashley Depressed Over Election is Challenged by Mike

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 to that place to recognize that self-government actually requires self-government. You actually have to do it. Doing it means you have to do it in between those elections, meaning you have to be vigilant, active. You have to be constantly learning, adjusting, and applying what you learn. Despondency is not going to accomplish any of that self-government that you’re going to have to practice. Check out the rest in today's audio and transcript...

The Blood on Obamas Hands in Libya is from Violating His Oath… NOT When He Cried Terrorist

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 we’re operating under, and it seems to me since so many people are jonesing for it that they want to operate under it. My friends, tyranny is already here, you just refuse to see it. The tyranny is already here. Check out the rest in today's audio and transcript...
