It was with great interest I saw some of the postings of George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation yesterday and about President Madison’s proclamation….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Three weeks after Obama's election and the talk of Secession is still going strong... especially in Texas. In fact, Larry Kilgore is running for Governor of Texas and will even change his name to Larry SECEDE Kilgore. But what about Ron Paul? In an interview with Mike earlier in the year he said the he didn't really think Secession was a very good idea... but lately he's changed his mind about it, which he doesn't do very often, so ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - One of the casualties of the recently concluded "federal" elections was the discussion of monetary policy, this was NOT a Thomas Jefferson moment. That the existence of the Fed, the Central Bank, now is not questioned by anyone lest they become labeled as radicals or extremists (see Ron Paul), tells us a lot about our sinking ship of state.….Continue
Mandeville, LA - We will all hear a lot about Washington's Thanksgiving proclamation of 1789 and how this holiday has its roots in the Christian tradition. While this is true and not the point of this post it's still worth noting. Let me get to the point. Late in his retirement James Madison began to develop his theory over he and Jefferson's "wall of separation", best expressed in "Memorial and Remonstrance on Religious Liberty". Madison's 1785 tract (1), written to oppose ….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 – Let’s carry the exercise out. Let’s step into the King Dude’s way forward machine. Let’s peek into the future. Let’s say the Boehner Congress caves, as they more than likely will, and they give up on the debt ceiling, give up on the spending, give up on the Affordable Care Act. Then you have resorted to, majorities of people in the several states have relied on the political process that their forefathers left to them t….Continue
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…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We know that George Washington had friends and close associates that owned slaves. I demand that the U.S. Treasury -- as a matter of fact, I want a giant crane with a five-ton wrecking ball on the end of it to smash that thing called the Washington Monument. That thing needs to come down. Washington had friends that were slave owners. He had relatives that were slave owners. Check out today’s tran….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Podcast - On today's Founders TV we discuss what Ron Paul's legacy will be, who will follow in his footsteps to fight for the gold standard and the fight against Central Banking. Mike also reads an excerpt from Henry Simmons book "The Life of John Taylor" about the Thomas Jefferson administration, how they're number one goal was to pay back the debt that Washington and Adams had built up, see how that relates to today's news in the free Founders TV ….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I think reading some of the great works of the latter part of the 18th century and early part of the 19th century, I think that’s a good place to start. One of the things that I’m learning as I continue to learn and study about this stuff, one of the things I learned is: Who did Madison read? Who was Jefferson reading? Jefferson carried some books around with him in a little leather satchel. I know what two of them were. Hav….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Brad is a professor at Hillsdale College. He is the author of the book about Charles Carroll of Carrolton, American Cicero, a great book about a forgotten founding father. He is also the editor of The Imaginative Conservative website, which we had Winston Elliott on yesterday and talked about. Brad is part of what I like to call the conservative revival. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
This Day in Founding Fathers History - Where we bring you important dates in the lives and history of the Founding Generation. On this day in 1798, the United States Marine Band was officially formed with legislation signed by President John Adams. ….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I just found it really fortuitous that I stumbled upon this letter while watching the Snowden clip about the nobility of the federal government and that’s what it was that drew Edward Snowden to it, then tying the whole immigration part of this letter to our current pickle over said immigration, being able to then see that back in 1794, 1795, 1796, just years after the Constitution went into effect, me….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I just think people should explore the possibilities, should not be wed to this jingoistic nationalism that we all must be wed to, and ought to think about what’s best for us and our children in your region, where it is you live, where it is that your community is. If it’s not membership in this union that spies on you and taxes you and harasses you and undermines your moral and cultural traditions, then leave it. What exactly ….Continue
Inauguration Speech of Thomas Jefferson 4 March, 1801 Friends and Fellow-Citizens: CALLED upon to undertake the duties of the first executive office of our country, I avail myself of the presence of that portion of my fellow-citizens which is here assembled to express my grateful thanks for the favor with which they have been pleased to look toward me, to declare a sincere consciousness that the task is above my talents, and that I approach….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This comes from the Huffington Puffington Post, the medically disputed theory that fetuses, Latin for baby, can feel pain at that point. Do you want to take the chance that they can’t? Have you seen an ultrasound of a 20-week old? I have. Don’t tell me that that child, and it is a child at that point, cannot feel pain. You can see it moving. You can see it kicking and doing all the things that ….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you’re a fan of nullification, you’re going to want to read this piece. From this little gathering in Fredericksburg, Virginia comes the inspiration for great things, which are the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions, of course Kentucky written by Jefferson, Virginia written by Madison, both with an assist from Taylor of Caroline. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Over the last 200 years, laws continue to become more complex and more hidden behind the curtain of secrecy of the American government. When the Alien and Sedition Act of 1798 was passed everyone knew what was in it, it was in the open, and because of that John Adams lost out to Thomas Jefferson in the next election. Fast forward to the War of Northern Aggression and while Lincoln is continuing his fight, the people of the Norther….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – On the 7th of June 1776, ladies and gentlemen, not the 4th of July -- that’s the consummation of the act. The 4th of July 1776 never happens without Richard Henry Lee and the 7th of June. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
