Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Today is the birthday of one Timothy Pickering. Now, not too many people are familiar with Pickering but more people should be. Why? Because he was one of the first people to be in favor of states seceding from the Union. Oh, but not just ANY states... the NORTHERN STATES! One of the main reasons that people like Pickering (and other Northerners) wanted the North to secede was because the South was in complete control of the Federal Government up until about 1860... just imagine how American History would have turned out if the North would have been successful in seceding! So enjoy today's history lesson about Timothy Pickering and secession in today's Founders TV! And be sure and sign up for a Founders Pass to listen to the entire show!

Of course, the story goes that Lincoln refused to see the commissioners because he knew that his force had been sent down to Charleston Harbor. It is believed by many that he was hoping that there would be a confrontation and he could use that as an excuse to threaten the South Carolinians with a full invasion and force them to undo their recent secession and rejoin the Union. That was the plan.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s another great little historical inconvenience, Frank. Pennsylvania was also part of a perpetual union according to the Articles of Confederation. You have been living in this union in violation of your own theory, according to the act ratified in November of 1781 called the Articles of Confederation. How does that taste in your pipe?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There are a lot more of the Ryans and Boehners and Cantors than there are of the Gohmerts, Amashes, and Massies. Legislatively speaking, you don’t have a leg to stand on. The other part of this is, and I’ve been pointing this out for the last two and a half years: Why are people like Paul Ryan and others running around saying they have parts of the Affordable Care Act that they’re absolutely enamored with?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is a complicated political question. Congress and the Lincoln administration did not reach a legal determination; they reached a political determination. There is a difference between the two. As a matter of fact, one of the subjects on tonight’s video presentation at MikeChurch.com will be Professor Brion McClanahan on this subject of the Constitution and secession.

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 – That’s what we did with Is Davis A Traitor? It is, in our opinion and in the opinion of many people, the greatest book ever written about not only was secession a constitutional right prior to the war of 1861, but on the Constitution as a compact and the theory behind it and the facts of the case. There’s even a chapter in the book that’s called “The Facts of the Case.” It’s just a marvelous book that’s been lost to time. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - They want to launch investigations into this scandal that's going on at the IRS. But what does that mean? Maybe a couple of people go to jail... MAYBE. But what would really be the best thing that could happen? The ending of the IRS. End the income tax. End the payroll tax. And you know how you do it, by restoring Federalism... or by dissolving the Union (yup, there's the s-word secession again). But really, why does the Federal Government NEED $4 TRILLION dollars from you? They can get what they need from excise taxes and other places to run the Government as configured in 1776... but not from your pocket.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - We can associate with anyone we want to in pretty much any walk of life. You can interact with anyone of any religion, race, political stance, taste in food, etc. But what about our states? What if one of our states wants to UN-associate itself with the "Perpetual Union" that Lincoln created? "OH NO YOU CAN'T DO THAT!" They will say. But why? If we have the right to do it individually, as people, why can't the states do it? Are the states not created FROM the people? For more be sure and check out today's Founders TV with Mark Kreslins and sign up for a Founders Pass if you don't already have one.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The way I read history and the way it used to be read all the way up until, I don’t know, maybe 1971 or so, to the “modern era,” the Supreme Court was convened and existed because of Article III in the U.S. Constitution. I know it’s old and antiquated, fuddy-duddy, and we don’t use it anymore. It’s dead and doesn’t mean what it once was. People in 1788 couldn’t have possibly known that Stan would be in love with Steve and would need a marriage license and it would have to be under the blessing of the Supreme Court, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I know all those things. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What is a state? Why do we care what a state is? Why should it matter? That’s an even better question. This is part of the intellectual due diligence process that we should go through in these instances and remind your fellow citizens. Why do we have states? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The history of Fort Sumter is one of the great untold and perverted stories in American history. Supposedly the ravenous, Johnny Reb, hick, hayseed, racist pigs that lived in Charleston, South Carolina that had just asserted their right to govern themselves, as their forefathers had done, and declare their independence, supposedly they were just jonesing for a fight.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Those of you that are CPAs or bookkeepers or accountants out there, how many of you would it take to keep up and to track that kind of spending? Just think about the manpower and the labor it would take to just track that, hell, just to record it. You’d have to have a machine working 24/7 just to print the checks, and they do. They have batteries of machines working 24/7. That is what our noble, allegedly constitutionally-consecrated government does. In whose definition of government is that even a government any longer? That is a laundering operation. That is an operation that every mobster who ever lived would be envious of. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - One of the things that has gone off the train tracks and it is our job as men to put it back on -- no, I am not calling you ladies into service because this is not your job. Sorry, but that’s one of the things that’s gone off the track. There is a difference between what a guy’s job is, what a gentleman’s job is, a Christian gentleman, and what a lady’s job is. One of the things that you must do, and this is up to the men, is you must create the next generation of statesmen. Many of you are in the process of creating the next generation of statesmen. The most surefire way to create actual statesmen -- and not partisan, hack demagogues who believe they are entitled to some station in life because they were born into it like the rest of our ruling elites of both parties, those that run magazines and think tanks and what have you -- the most surefire way to do this is to provide that elusive liberal education, classical liberal education.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - We sit here and think that we can save this union as it is and we can fix this. I keep asking the question: for what purpose? Why do you want to fix it? Can you tell me why? If you can’t get to the why, and I don’t believe that many people can, then can you get to the why of why you want to divide it or why you think it might be prudent to divide it? We’re out of scale, folks. It’s totally out of scale. Do you know what’s managing this circumstance right now and becoming more and more apparent? It’s a four letter word, not a curse word, although it should be: fear. Fear is managing this. You fear. Check out the rest in today's audio and transcript...

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - That is happening while the other libs, the ones in Charlotte, are preening and prattling about planning to expand the empire, to increase its immorality, to increase its corruption, to continue the generational theft that is currently going on. Not only do they not want many of the next generation to be born, those that are born will then have a larger share of the national debt that’s currently being run up in these people’s names to pay back. Think about that? It’s not bad enough that they’re pro-abortionists that are all gathered here and cheering wildly about a slaughter of unborn, innocent children. That’s what was going on at that convention last night, speaker after speaker after speaker. Not only are they cheering that, but what of those that actually are born and maybe survive these procedures, or who have actual parents that say, “I think when we become pregnant we should actually bring those lives into this world”? Well, there will be a lot less of them if Democrats and the women’s plumbing caucus that was on parade last night in Charlotte, North Carolina have their way. Check out today's transcript for more...
