What’s the Difference Between Ted Cruz’s Filibuster and Rand Paul’s? Complacency vs Action.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Even though Ted Cruz was standing tall at his filibuster against Obamacare, he was also standing with the majority view. His views represent nothing new and most of the rest of the Republican party. When Rand had his filibuster he was challenging the Democrats AND the Republicans, who had voted FOR most of the policies he was filibustering against (NSA, spyfare, drones, etc). Ted Cruz deserves credit for joining Paul's filibuster but there is a major difference between the two. One is complacent within his party and the other represents action in a new direction.

Defenders of the Constitution… Is There Anybody Out There?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - How many TRUE statesmen have their been recently? True defenders of the Constitution. Ted Cruz? Nah. Ron Paul is about the only one that we can actually think of. And it doesn't matter if these guys are Republican or Democrat. Why anyone would want to jump on board with any member of the current political class is beyond comprehension. Almost everyone is there to toe the party line, be it Republican or Democrat, and this is exactly what the Founders warned us about. They warned us about Party politics and the "political class", so it's up to us to keep an eye on the governing body, we are the ones who need to keep THEM in check.

What Does The Conservative Gentleman Wear In These Modern Times?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When people are wearing flip flops and camo gear... to Mass, what is the Conservative Gentleman to wear? Well, much like in the political realm, there is not specific guide, but we have history to guide us. We can look back at some of the great conservatives, Russell Kirk and T.S. Elliot for example, to see what they wore, which was mostly suits and ties. Many men's styles were created in the 1930's and these styles are not stuck in those times, you can take the clothing of that era, wear it now, and it is very appropriate. We need to have a revolution not only in our morals and values, but also in our dress.

Paul Ryan’s $3.9 Trillion Budget Is The New “Conservative” Benchmark

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Please explain to me, or to people that think like me: Where then is the hope for a federal solution to any of this? The fact of the matter is, sans a federal balanced budget amendment, the current crisis we suffer under is only going to become more insufferable. Since we know what they’re doing to the dollar and we know what’s happening to real wages, you can see the decline written on the proverbial wall. " Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Just Admit Defeat Already, Obamacare Should Be Reformed, Not Repealed

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – One of the things that we talk about here on this show that I think distinguishes it from others is that there is no partisan solution. First of all, the conservative does not believe there is a political solution to life. Let me repeat that. The conservative does not believe that there is a political solution to life’s problems. Life’s problems have to be experienced and worked out by individuals. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

What Did The Founders Think Of Big Government? Let’s Ask John Taylor Of Caroline

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 been accepted by the rank-and-file citizenry out there, and is the great tragedy indeed of the early part of the 21st century, I think.

Conservative, Tea Party, And Republican Are Not Synonyms

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s the headline from the magazine post: “Why the Tea Party Can’t Govern.” Here, let me give you the tease, “Something is seriously wrong with conservatism.” Let me stop right there. Damn skippy, yeah! Hello!? Conservatism is an advertising slogan. That’s what’s wrong with it. Anything that becomes an ism, you might say, is probably, going back to Frohnen’s post about “What is this Thing called Virtue?” is something that is not going to produce results that people think it’s going to produce.

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.

You Won’t Find Your Leader Of The 101st Talk Radio Show Militia Here

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Simpson makes the other brilliant point, which is very rarely discussed. Let’s just say that what you think is going to happen actually happens. What happens after that? Who gets to run the show? You people think there’s actually another George Washington out there? Our revolution was very unique. Our revolution was one of the very rare instances in the history of all humanity, 8,000 years of recorded history, ours was one of the very, very rare instances where at the end of a revolution, a king, a monarch, or a dictator did not move in to assume power.

Enough Already With The “USA! USA!” Jingoism, Let’s Try A Little Localism

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 for the rest…

Community Is Necessary To Be Conservative And [r]epublican

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – That’s another thing that is encouraging out there. There are a lot of younger people, younger than I, which doesn’t take very much anymore. I’m going to be using wheelchair ramps soon, I feel like. Many younger people are involved in and directly hands-on involved in trying to save their country. This is what is encouraging.

True Conservatives Aren’t Hurting The GOP Because The GOP Doesn’t Represent Them

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What she’s talking about is not conservative or conservatism. She’s talking about Republicanism. There is party mantra. There is party dogma that makes one a Republican. This is why the term RINO, Republican in name only is still so popular, [mocking] “We gotta get rid of them damn RINO Republicans” and why it is a problem. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Progressive Train Is Steaming Down The Tracks

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The reason is because it is far easier and a lot more comforting in the short-term to abuse the privilege of governing, especially when you can abuse it with the promise that a future person to be governed is going to pay for it. It’s nothing more than a wealth transfer scheme unlike any the world has ever seen. It is despicable. It is criminal. It is morally repulsive. Yet, an entire population of this continent is unable to see the crime that is happening in broad daylight, is being rejoiced about, and is being celebrated today.

Congress Has A Few Patriots, But The Rest Are Just Fighting For Their Slice Of Leviathan Pie

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Don’t be living in the ethereal fantasy world that these guys are actually holding the line for the reasons that you and I hold near and dear. There are obviously other political concerns here. There is the divvying up of the $3.8-trillion-pound pie that’s really what is going on here. Each side is fighting for their slice. There are some in the House of Representin’ that are fighting for the correct causes, I think. Their numbers are small. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Tea Party, Get Out Of Town

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – But then imagine an alternate reality in which figures like Joe Lieberman and John Kerry were stuck trying to lead a Democratic Party whose backbenchers were mostly net-roots-funded fans of Michael Moore, and you have a decent analog for where the post-Bush Republicans have ended up.

Patrick Deneen Asks A Great Question: “What Is An American Conservative?”

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 article -- this is not internet folly, not fantasy, not made up and comprised of a bunch of forwarded, hackneyed emails that aren’t true. The title of the piece is “What Is an American Conservative?” That is a great question. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Obama’s Veto Will Be For Partisan Rather Than Constitutional Reasons

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Yes, we’re going to go down the road of constitutional fantasy land for just a moment. This could be another exercise in civics. Why should the President of the United States, why should that veto pen of his have such grave or awesome power? To answer that query is to answer the purpose of why we have a written constitution to begin with. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

What Is The Alternative To The Legislative Process?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Now the government in the 21st century is trying to say that the health and welfare of every living soul on the North American continent is now the legislative duty and responsibility of the government of the United States. Some of us take great offense to that, see great danger in it, and do not want that principle, even though some have already surrendered on that principle when it comes to Medicare and Medicaid.

GOP Says Medicare Good, Obamacare Bad, But Both Are Government-Run Healthcare

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – As a matter of fact, the same party that says government shouldn’t be running healthcare, the Republicans, are probably now the most staunch defenders of the biggest government healthcare program known to ever exist in the history of the universe, Medicare.

Interview With Greg Brannon, North Carolina Candidate For U.S. Senate

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – To the Dude Maker Hotline, my friend and soon to be yours, Dr. Greg Brannon. I want to tell you a little about Dr. Brannon. He is running for what is basically an open United States Senate seat in the great State of North Carolina. He is a practicing doctor, an obstetrician. He has a houseful of children. He keeps himself very busy. I saw him speak at LPAC, Liberty Political Action Conference in Chantilly, Virginia. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Justin Amash Is A Patriot For His Dissent Of War In Syria

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Is it patriotic to dissent? I think it’s patriotic to try to talk your country out of going to war. When you see the photographs of the aftermath of American exceptionalism in Iraq, American exceptionalism in Kosovo, American exceptionalism in Somalia and what have you, when you see the aftermath of this and you see the destruction that is wrought by this, if this level and type of destruction were wrought upon an American city by any other government on Earth, it wouldn’t matter which one it was, our response would be outrage.

Secretary Of State Kerry And Senator McCain Act Like They’ve Forgotten Vietnam And The Realities Of War

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I would like to know, where is the conservative outrage over this? You people that love to brandish those pocket constitutions at those tea party rallies, the last time I checked, the calling and instigation of hostilities and warlike activities was left into the hands of the House of Representatives and the United States Senate. That power was not vested in the American king. It was vested in the legislature, and for good damn reason. I’d like to know where the collective “conservative” outrage is. If you want to talk about violations of the Constitution, this one is of the highest magnitude. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Interview With Dwayne Stovall, U.S. Senate Candidate For Texas

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I’ve been teasing you about this all day long. Who is this mystery candidate who is going to be the next candidate, he’s going to announce here on this show that he is going to seek the nomination to be on the ballot come November 2014 to run for United States Senate against an unnamed Democratic opponent? He is hailing from the great State of Texas. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
