Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "What humanitarianism is is what some of you people call me up and yell and scream at me and send me hate mail over, what some of you advocate, which is a complete ignorance, a complete removal, a complete form of abstinence over all matters and all things that would pertain to or could be overseen by the supernatural authority of this entity that we should all love and admire and give thanks to for our very existence called God.  S….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Conservative nationalism was already on the rise in the 1980's. This was 1988 when Nisbet delivered the Jefferson lecture.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "What you just said was sensationally, it’s appropriate, it’s pertinent to today, and I don’t think there are very many of us that are even capable of understanding that without sitting here and reflecting and pondering.  What he said, folks, was that he thinks Burkean conservatism is only relative to the time that you live in or the era you live in, which would mean that it’s inappropriate to cite Edmund Burke and Burkean ….Continue

Why Chanting USA! USA! After Drone Strikes Is Not Conservative

Topics: ,

Mandeville, LA - Russell Kirk was the "father of modern conservatism" a title he never sought yet humbly grew to accept. In many of Kirk's late writings (he died in 1994) he saw the danger of the "conservative movement" becoming militarized. This was not only a danger for the longevity of the country but was dangerous to the cause of Christianity which a robust conservatism is founded upon. In his "What is Conservatism" I found some wisdom on this score. "In the affairs of nat….Continue

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is a creed that we’ve been talking about for about a year on this show called obedience to the unenforceable. What is obedience to the unenforceable and why does it matter? How would you apply it to Mark Wahlberg? Obedience to the unenforceable is you choose not to do things. You censor yourself. You choose to not use that language that popped into your head and you went: I can’t wait to drop this F-bomb in front of ot….Continue

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.

1953: Two Roads Diverged In America, And We Unfortunately Took The One More Traveled

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Russell Kirk published "The Conservative Mind" in 1953, guess what ELSE was published in 1953? The scientific "discoveries" that were predicted to, by now, have delivered our scientifically engineered and guided, utopia. Two schools of thought in the same year and most Americans followed the scientific one, not the one that would have improved their spiritual lives with what Kirk called "the permanent things". Things such as moralit….Continue

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
