Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The last caller to the program asked me what I thought the founders, why they opposed or why they afraid of big government. I said to him that to answer that question, you’d have to understand or explain exactly what big government would have meant to them. It did not mean to them what it means to us today, because we see this monstrosity and this excessive abuse of power that unfortunately has become commonplace, it seems, has b….Continue
Mandeville, LA - You’ve probably all read the KY & VA Resolves on nullification & interposition and, like most people, think that is the beginning and end of the story, but like most great epics in history there is always a back story that is equally as important. In the case of Nullification & Interposition the back story is that the inspiration for the resolves wasn’t from a brain storming session between Jefferson, Taylor & Madison. The inspiration actually came from th….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - When I think of the US Air Force I think of its theme song “Off we go, into the wild blue yonder… nothing can stop the US Air Force,” nothing except a misunderstood use of the first Amendment. You see, the Air Force Academy is under fire for asking cadets to recite its oath, “[w]e will not lie, steal or cheat nor tolerate among us anyone who does. Furthermore, I resolve to do my duty and live honorably, s….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In this one rare instance here, we all remain republicans but we can maybe claim that we’re Republicans now. A shocker of all shockers that Speaker John Boehner has not folded the tent, which I must say I am cheerfully impressed by. I don’t hold out any hope that he’s actually going to hold the line, but he certainly is not giving into the demands, the illicit and I think ridiculous demands of, n….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Still, what Obama is doing today, I’m sorry, folks, it does not rise to the level of what President Wilson did. President Wilson, in 1917, two acts were passed, the Espionage Act and the Sedition Act. There were tens of thousands of American citizens that refused to surrender, as you people like to call them today, many of you, constitutional rights to not be conscripted. There is no constitutional right to conscript anyone into….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Then the real fireworks began when Senator John “Rambo” Kerry made his way into the United States Senate chamber and began answering questions from people like Rand Paul. I have the pertinent parts of the Paul-Kerry dialogue from yesterday. If you haven’t heard it, it is illuminating inasmuch as Senator Paul is not buying any of the secretary of defense’s mighty protestations. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you were to ask members of the founding generation, if you were to go back in time, if you could hop in the King Dude’s wayback machine and ask Richard Henry Lee: What do you think about this new constitution deal? How do you think this is going to turn out for your posterity and for future generations? He, with others, was mortified. He thought it was going to turn out exactly as it is turning out today and as it began to de….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There's an ongoing discussion of whether or not Ted Cruz is eligible for running for President... even though he has not announced is running as of yet. Certainly he meets the requirements for being a Senator, but does he meet the requirements for being a President? Let's let James Madison explain... According to Mr. Madison the "natural born citizen" requirement does not necessarily mean that he was born on U.S. soil. The question ….Continue
This Day in Founding Fathers History - Where we bring you important dates in the lives and history of the Founding Generation. On this day in 1798, the United States Marine Band was officially formed with legislation signed by President John Adams. ….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 – Hayes actually went to Red Hill, which is where Henry lived and died, and asked permission of the family and the curator of the family estate and found Henry’s own diaries and the logs that Patrick Henry used to catalog his possessions. Back in those days, if you had books, books were like -- what would you compare a book to today? A book was a prized possession. They were very difficult to make. Usually what would happen is so….Continue
This Day in Founding Founders History - Where we bring you important dates in the lives and history of the Founding Generation. On this day in 1815, President Madison approved an act of Congress appropriating money to purchase Thomas Jefferson’s library.….Continue
Mandeville, LA - In a post I wrote earlier this week we discussed the fact the not only were the Southern States correct in their assertion of the Constitution as a Compact but nearly the entire PLANET agreed with them-save for that violent, tyrannical mob in New England. My post made its way onto the pages of The Imaginative Conservative website. In the comments that resulted, it was asserted that I didn't know what I was talking about and that the VA Founding Fathers NEVER i….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - On today's Founders TV Mike goes over the history of the Republican Party and it may not be what you've been taught... The Republican Party isn't the "Defenders of the Constitution" that the current party has supposedly made themselves out to be, in fact, if you were a little r [r]epublican back before Lincoln, you were most likely... A DEMOCRAT! Be sure and grab a Founders Pass to check out the rest of….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - What Taylor is saying is that you should only have a tariff because you have a couple duties that the general government has to discharge. You should only have the tariff so that you can raise money to do that. You should not use the tariff to enrich anyone. You should not use the tariff as a tool to try to guide commerce. Commerce will guide itself. The genius and the brilliance of John Taylor of Caroline in the founding generation….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - How many of you think that George Washington would have accepted all of the accoutrements that Petraeus did as head of the CIA? Do you think Washington would have taken a 28 horse entourage from the airport (had they been around) to his mistresses house? I think not, his honor would not have let him. Well, the guys that run our country now have it pretty easy, police escorts, a staff to read everything….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Where are the smart people at? We have a deficiency of smart people. I don’t mean people who can divine or devise a new electronic gadget for you to carry around and fritter away the hours. Where are the real smart people? Where are the Jeffersons, the Taylors, the Madisons? Where are the Davises or the Calhouns? Where are the Coolidges? Where are the Carnegies? Where are the Melons? Where are the….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - This is Mike's response to Andrew from New York, which you can listen to in today's audio. "The New York, Yankee elite cannot see the attraction or the worthiness of the Southern gentleman. No wonder you bombed us back into the stone ages, Andrew. You’re a perfect example. This is exactly the attitude that your forefathers had. They can’t understand the usefulness of these guys hanging out at their plantations. Let me….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The true conservative in the mold of [r]epublicans like Madison and Washington and Taylor of Caroline and the Englishman Burke and 20th century versions you would find like Tolkien and C.S. Elliott and Russell Kirk and others, they would not recognize today’s conservatives. I think that says an awful lot of bad things about today’s conservatives. I used to ask the question: what is it that we want to c….Continue
