Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I think what he just explained to you -- this is just another point of view in a long string of explanations, Professor Livingston -- is that you’ve been taught to understand the constitutional order as specifically and totally defined by the federal judiciary when we know from the admonitions of the framers of the Constitution that the government cannot possibly be the sole arbiter of the extent of its own powers.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - How did Scalia become the "strict Constitutionalist" of the Supreme Court? Is it based more on image than actual decisions? You could certainly make a case for that based on his latest decision in the Arizona case. If anything, Thomas is the more Conservative on the Supreme Court, but he doesn't keep up appearances like Scalia does. But does anyone think the Supreme Court is ever going to slow down? Are they ever going to try and scale back their own power? No, even if they had two REAL conservatives in Scalia and Thomas, they would still be greatly outnumbered, and it's probably not going to get any better.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Under the original ratified in 1788 Constitution, all municipal and police or common law problems and powers were left in the hands of the states. It wasn’t until madmen decided: We can make these things federal cases. If we don’t get our way in the state, we can get the Feds to bail us out. Of course, there was never any constitutional authority for this. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – To read this letter here is just to read the most laughable interpretation of the federal constitution -- I say laughable in 18th century terms. Of course today people think that what Eric Holder wrote, [mocking] “Yeah, he can do that.” You have guys like Bill O’Reilly running around who will cite the supremacy clause for the silliest things and not even question it. You should question it. The Feds are not supreme and you shouldn’t want them to be supreme. The whole concept of federalism, or as I call it republicanism, relies on the fact that they’re not supreme. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Here's a quote from Debbie's review, read the rest in today's transcript: "It was interesting. To me, that’s the point of something like this, to make people think, and also to educate them. I always learn a lot when I listen to and/or watch your historical projects. You really are a scholar of these things. They don’t teach this stuff. Sure, I learned about the Supremacy Clause, I learned that a lot of the founders wanted to stay with Britain, I learned about a lot of the basics of what you delve into far more deeply. Most of the facts and most of the things you talked about, I had no clue. I never had learned about John Taylor of Caroline ever. I learned of him from you."
