This Day In Founding Fathers History – 7 June On this day in 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia introduced three resolutions to the Continental Congress.
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - On Saturday last, President Obama announced to the world that he was seeking an authorization1 to use military force against “The Syrian regime” or what used to be called The Assad administration2. While Obama claimed he did not need to gain Congress’s blessing he would seek it anyway. The press quickly sprang into action asking all the wrong questions of all the wrong people like “will the Congress side with the President”? The proper question to ask instead should be “exactly what threat does the “Syrian regime” pose to citizens of the United States?
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 degrade and devolve in the early part of the 19th century. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In the last two weeks, I have immersed myself in research for a short film I want to make. I’ve been wanting to make it since 2009 when I stumbled on this story, a very obscure story about how the effort to stop ratification of the Constitution was intentionally sabotaged. There is no doubt in my mind that it was intentionally sabotaged. The challenge is to try and figure out who it was that did the sabotaging. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The decepticon establishment -- you know them as neocons; I call them decepticons. This is just one of many things that’s going to be done in an effort to try and stop the rise of Senator Paul, because Paul poses an imminent threat. That’s how I view it, Andrew. You may not view it like that. You may view it as the good citizens of the Washington Beacon doing their due diligence and sparing all the rest of us from the horrors of the writings of the Southern Avenger. I view this as a hit against Rand. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Approximately 240 years ago the Congress and Senate were supposed to have their first meeting to elect the first President of the United States of America... but not enough Senators showed up to form a quorum. There were enough Congressmen there, but it took them several weeks and numerous letters to get some of the Senators (ahem,Virginia, ahem) there. And of course, when enough finally got to Federal Hall in New York, they elected George Washington first President of the United States of America... but still not everyone was there and some of the states still had not ratified the Constitution. Can you imagine something like that happening today? Senators and congressmen not attending the Inauguration or the first day of a new session? They would be absolutely scorned in public. But many members of the first Congress were apathetic and ambivalent to their office, since it didn't have much authority anyways...
