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

Every Generation Has It's Problems Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Remember, Russell Kirk, the great conservative author and the man many believe was correctly and aptly titled the father of modern-day conservatism, Kirk was fond of this phrase that he thought all conservatives should have in the back of their mind at all times.  It was okay, indeed it was advisable, to stand up on the shoulders of giants."  Check out today’s tran….Continue

The Rise of Conservative Nationalism Makes Beating Democrats Useless

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

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Conservative nationalism was already on the rise in the 1980's. This was 1988 when Nisbet delivered the Jefferson lecture. The four men who have served as presidents since Robert Nisbet delivered this lecture make Reagan seem like an isolationist. Remember his 1976 plea at the Republican National Convention to end the problems of nuclear war or his suggestion to the Soviet premier in 1986 in Iceland that Americans and Soviets simp….Continue

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

Gentlemanly Virtues Come From Obedience To The Unenforceable

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

What Does The Conservative Gentleman Wear In These Modern Times?

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

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….Continue

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

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "It's not Red Sox Vs Yankees, it's Conservationists Vs Liberationists."  Conor Friedersdorf has an interesting post at The Atlantic website.  It operates under the title, “What Parts of the New Deal Do ‘True Conservatives’ Want to Scrap?”  I can answer that question in three notes.  How about the whole thing?  How about we start with Wickard v.

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

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Conservatism isn't about political parties or even politics in general. Simply put, it's about conserving the good things in one's life. Conserving your family, relationships with friends, culture, history, community, nature, etc. You wouldn't try to conserve the bad or evil things in your life would you?

Conservatism - The Most Misused Word In Politics

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

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I have a very intriguing thought to add to this discussion about intellect and about what conservatives ought to do. As a nonconformist member of the worst generation, I think the major problem we have today is we’re not smart enough to have studied, or we’re not studious to know what words actually mean. We use many words out of context. The most bastardized and abused word out there is the word conservative. Check out today….Continue

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 art….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Now what formerly was normal, for 10,000 years of recorded history was being normal and as being biologically necessary for the next generation is now not permitted.

With Religion Gone, People Turn To The State To Organize Their Lives

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

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What’s a cult? Back in the day, a couple thousand years ago, humans organized into cults. Almost all cults had their basis in religion. It doesn’t matter what religion it was, whether it was Buddhism or mysticism or Judaism or Islam before the advent of the prophet Mohammed. I guess there were Hellenic religions, worshiping or believing in Greek gods and then Roman gods and what have you. It didn’t matter because the cult ….Continue
