Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest [r]epublican news, reading selections and Mike’s take on the the Tenth Amendment Center’s Turn it off video ad campaign to castrate the NSA . Read along with Mike’s historical viewpoint to help make sense of it all plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125. “That killing peasants with high-tech weapons in remote lands would be considered the same as defending America and defending freedom? And that merely questioning this premise would bring down a ton of hatred from “patriots” That “family” could mean Two Mommies? That newspaper editors and clergymen would go from being well-educated and independent-minded leaders of their local communities to ignorant clones all blabbing the same empty abstractions. That the ruling class of the U.S. would be mostly made up of intellectually andn orally shallow people who have never done an honest day’s work? And that their public discourse would never rise above puerile pseudo-intellectualism?“ – Clyde Wilson, Chronicles Magazine Blog
VIDEO: How do the sheople react to a stranger reading their emails? Predictably, which begs the question, why don’t they act in the same manner when they learn the NSA is reading their emails? (answer because NSA has told them it’s for “national security…ahhhh…. a lllll is forgiven… want to look at my snail mail too?)
Nomocracy: A look back at what individual liberty was like at the turn of the twentieth century and just how much has been lost today
So if you’re an elite, Wall street or media overlord you can practically get away with murder and still retain your status and your license to steal – and if your NSA or CIA – kill but of you are just concerned/outraged or curious, make one mistake and your life is an open book subject to recriminations that make the McCarthy Commission look like security at minor league baseball game
Racism for thee but not for me? Noah Berlatsky makes a case worthy of an Obama Kill-list designation over the race chosen to portray Marvel Comics characters in upcoming movies. Berlatsky continues the uni0-directional bias that only one or two races are worthy of being interchangeable in casting because the biases of the bully race (white people) require eternal penance on the pages of Slate, WaPo and the Atlantic.
The Sara Palin/Ted Cruz Axis now has a new target to threaten being burned at the stake for hero worship heresy: Thomas Sowell. Sowell joins my call for Cruz to stop the caricature of an 19th century statesman who acts more like Adam Sandler than John Calhoun
VIDEO: My latest on Senator Mary Landrieu’s deception and corruption. Trivia: I actually submitted this with the title: Landrieu’s Legacy? Louisiana Addicted To Bailout Crack
Teddie & The Cruisers update: In the one instance Cruz is status quo (foreign policy) then he says something about “serving the people of Texas”. But has he?
Now that our pixelated overlords in media & national government have blessed the sacrament of homosexual marriage it is only a matter of time before the now radical but soon to be “mainstream” polyamory marriage fad gets a constitutional push. Then they’ll move onto telling us incest is a stupid holdover from the unenlightened Bible days and they’ll finish with the relaunch of the old TV show “Mr. Ed” featuring Mr & Mrs Ed with the Mrs played by Scarlett Johanssen
The MSM demand that American’s who revere “their first Amendment rights” must stand behind and support “P*##y Riot” for their courageous stand against the evil Vladimir Putin. But it’s not Putin who is urinating in Catholic churches, having sex during public protests against????? and generally orgy-ing about Kiev in their obnoxious way. If that is the face of protest then what must be the result of the protest if it is successful, Bill? Megan? McCain? Cruz?
Jordan Bloom enters my symposium on Rethinking the American union without actually entering the symposium, still his piece is worthy of a read, a nice bourbon and a cigar…oh, and a visit to Bill Kaufmann’s house to discuss what to call the newly seceded country of upstate New York (Iroquois?)
Eric Cantor gives surprisingly dull not surprisingly DeceptiCON laden speech on foreign policy at VMI warning cadets of the days drawing near to Iran launching its stable of long rands, nuclear tipped ICBM’s at unsuspecting folks in Tacoma Washington
Nomocracy’s David Gordon reviews Donald Livingston’s “Rethinking the American Union for The 21st century” to conclude that smaller [r]epublics are sorely needed to end Leviathan’s reign

My Latest From The Daily Caller-Please visit and share the post to show MSM outlets how popular [r]epublicanism is
At Daily Caller – New York does NOT need a Hall Pass from Congress to split into two states. It needs a hall pass if the new state desires admission into the union and to be recognized as a Union state but that is a big “if”
Jeffrey Tucker helps shed some light on the conditions under which our all “volunteer” military is actually anything but volunteer – his example of Stonewall Jackson ordering deserters to be shot drives the point, uncomfortably home
DECEPTICONNED: So it’s OK for the US military in all its pomp and bellicosity, to conduct war games, pretend bombing missions of foreigners, REAL bombing missions of foreigners and play real-life Stratego with the board to boot but if another country does the same thing that means “America is weak” under Obama. Really, DeRoy Murdock? Laying the demise of “America” at the feet of one party with a 4 year Presidency and 2 year control of the House is a guaranteed recipe for failure. We should all know what happens when 1 party runs the tables: they spend for their constituents and interests
The definitive survey of U.S. President’s and where they rank in 3 categories, The Constitution, Liberty and leadership, you will be surprised at who ranks #2 & #3. I participated in the survey with 9 PhD’s some of whom you know

When you hear your “conservative” friends yodel on endlessly about the “Liberal Media” or the corrupt “MSM” as they are convinced this is a recent event, send them here to go read Mark Twain’s speech of 1873 about the “corrupt press”
Here’s an interesting work that I recently discovered “The Crowd” by Guztave Le Bron a fascinating study of how crowds control nations and what nations become control crowds. No, it isn’t a paradox, it is the study of how inertia in public affairs is almost always missing when “change” is lusted for
Albert J Nock’s: Isaiah’s Job (from Tuesday, 4 Feb, 2014 show-Ed.), the story of how the Remant is to be kept animated and active if Man is to survive perdition (our own path to destruction)

This 1860 classic work details the type of manners and etiquette every young man should learn and live his life by. I just started reading the work myself and look forward to sharing much of it here and on-air. “THE GENTLEMEN’S BOOK OF ETIQUETTE, AND MANUAL OF POLITENESS”
“Our Federal Government” by Abel Upshur is an 1833 demolition of Justice Joseph Story’s fabricated history of the United States and her Constitution. WARNING: Reading this will increase your resolve to secede!

The counter-argument presented by John taylor of Caroline AFTER the government’s lawyer, Wickham, presented his case for the tax. I did not include this in the Carriage Tax Pamphlet but have found it online. Begin reading on pg 423.
Nomocracy: It is disturbing tow watch as Libertarians flock to the incorporation Doctrine just like Progressives and DeceptiCONS leaving us [r]epublicans and the Remnant to defend original intent as ratified and REQUIRED to have federalism (don’t worry, we don’t)
SPYIN’ EYES: The Obama kill-list is alive and well (no pun intended) and has its next American citizen target in its sites in Pakistan
TAC’s Olmstead: Don’t feel for Bode Miller after the Fable TV News crews did what they do, the fact is the Reality TV world we live in demands ever more intrusive ‘real moments” of pain and misery, failure or implied failure (if there’s no story, just make one up to get the failure card rolling, it will work). Easiest solution is to Turn it off
Daniel Larison joins me in wondering why “House of Cards” is so ludicrous in its plot line? From my perspective I wonder why they didn’t go REALLY radical and show [r]epublicans working to thwart Mordor’s wishes
The TradCathosphere goes nuclear on 3rd person reports that Pope Francis doesn’t think young people need “the fad (or mods)” of the TLM but as Father Z notes, this does not matter to the Summorum pontificum
Now Obama is trying to tell the truckers to Turn it off meaning their big rigs as the Executive Orderer in Chief issues new MPG regs with the stroke of a pen, acting as a super legislator to downsize all our cars, make them less safe and shred another page of the Constitution. Oh, wait, that was a roll of toilet paper, there IS no constitution left to shred.
Obama draws new “red line” in the Kiev snow, dares Ukranians to keep acting all Russian and stuff or you know, he’ll send John Kerry over there to threaten a military strike
CBO “study” concludes what any person with an IQ over 105 already knows: force employers to raise their wages and you put people out of work…duhhhh. Only a government agency could call this a “finding”, what next will the EPA study water and discover it is wet?
UAW efforts to force a VW plant in TN to unionize fail after UAW fat cats boasted they had the votes needed. Someone must have explained to the VW workers that UAW’ing that plant was a doorway to lower wages, lower profit sharing and the plant closing in 5 years
TIC: Is the film “Her” a window into our very near techno-future? Peter Lawler thinks so and he is onto something important with the discussion of Christian love being subdued for fear of discovering the inconvenient question: why would God love us?
If you can’t beat Obama, join him in the techno race to Twsitter-ize the vote with electronic messaging so craftily schemed up and tailored for each individual “voter” that the NSA might actually be jealous
SLICK HILLY UPDATE: Kathleen Willey wants us to know that Slick Hilly IS the war against women, recall that it was Hillary who hired the goons to torment Willey after she charged Bubba with groping her in the Oral Office. “They take up all the oxygen in the room, and everybody is depressed. We’re gonna go back to all the sordid details [if Hillary runs for president]. They need to just go away because they’re forcing themselves on us is the way I feel. Just pack your bags. You’ve had your 15 minutes. … Stop forcing us to have to look at this stuff again. We’re sick of it!”
VIDEO: The Dwayne Stovall (texansforstovall.com) ad that shows Mitch McConnell as Franklin the Turtle and Dave Weigle’s dismissal of Dwayne as a candidate
STILL MCCAIN: McCain savages Ted Cruz for not having a plan to deal with the national debt yet grandstanding as if he did. As if McCain has any plan other than to say. “Screw it who counts that G*d D*mned thing anymore anyway!?”
Chicago’s Wrong Emanuel proves yet again that the quickest way to business success is to buy the politicians to gain subsidies and laws that guarantee you a monopoly which always comes at the consumer’s expense. Now Emanuel is going after new limo services. Why? Because they might make old limo services compete.
Trail of Tears: The “cuts” to the military that have decreased the amounts of compensation military vets were promised when they enlisted for tours of duty in our never-ending wars of aggression are now being cut and some find themselves in bread lines. Maybe someone should look and see if any of the hourly or salaried workers building the machines and supplies of war are standing in bread lines (I wager they are not)
Mish: How is your neighbor keeping up with the Joneses while everyone’s salary is either stuck or declining? CHARGE IT! That’s how
My Three Amigos Update – March 4th is coming up quick, are there enough Texans to rally behind the only [r]epublican to challenge Jon Cornyn for US Senate in 18 years!? Here’s 22 seconds to explain why you should consider that option.
Rethinking The American Union Symposium – Allen Mendenhall’s “Secession and Messianic Statism Part II” is the most well thought out, provocative yet motivational from the reclaim liberty and the liberty of the Spirit, I have read since Gildersleeve’s Creed of The Old South. Folks, STOP what you are doing and read this, then read it to your kids, then read it to your grandmother, then print it and slip it in your neighbor’s mailbox. An excerpt “The American Union no longer represents America. America is dead, and the American Union killed it. In its place is a consolidated bureaucracy that carries out standardized programs to enforce uniform mediocrity.”
Rethinking the American Union, Symposium, rolls on with Allen Mendenhall’s “Secession and messianic statism Part I” at Nomocracy in politics.

FLASHBACK: Jeffrey Tucker reminds us that the merchant class is the antithesis to the Leivathan state. Why, the, are we so rude and dismissive of their efforts? Here is my interview with Jeffrey on this from 2011.
Great men have made great stories under trees, yes trees as Brad Birzer recounts and inspires us to look to nature for strength and inspiration, from time to time
So WHAT does the NSA actually look like these days? Is it the harmless little 5 story office building shown in most stories? Or is it this hulking, sprawling, menacing looking place where tens of THOUSANDS of cars can park so citizens can spy on their fellow citizens
The Fame of Our Fathers: What makes a famous Founder famous and why are so many, once famous, now not known at all? The answer lies partly in the fickleness of any given age and what it needs to exalt itself, the rest comes from the Founders own pursuit of Fame as I chronicled in Fame of Our Fathers. Here’s an audio sample explaining “conditores imperiorum” and you can buy the 3 CD set there
Where the Jobs Aren’t – Illinois’ Policy Institute’s Director tells Land of Lincoln lubbers what [r]epublicna Mike Church Show Fans have know for years. The Wrong Emmanuel criminal enterprise that teamed up with the gang in Springfield to raise corporate tax rates to keep Chicago in public loot has caused a massive exodus to nearby Indiana and even as far away as Texas. This shows that people ARE willing to “secede” from bad government as “withdrawing to another polity is just that

Glen Greenwald completely demolishes the ridiculous and lethal claims that the President has a justified “right” to issue assassination orders to anyone on earth at any time anywhere. This new memo detailing the Obama Kill List parameters, if there are any, should scare the bejesus belt out of any liberty lover. “If you believe the president has the power to order US citizens executed far from any battlefield with no charges or trial, then it’s truly hard to conceive of any asserted power you would find objectionable.”
LATIN PHRASE OF THE DAY: imprimisque hominis est propria veriinquisitio atque investigatio – the first duty of man is investigating the truth
FLASHBACK to “Times That Try Mens Souls”, Mike’s latest feature length docudrama – The Widow Who Saved The Revolution, who was she? the mystery is finally revealed. This woman took the Hessian Colonel Donop into her home of Dec., 23rd and kept him there until December 27th, long enough to prevent him reinforcing Trenton, NJ and squashing Washington’s Crossing Cell Mates Snowden & Clapper!?
Rethinking The America Union. “Evaluating The Current Union of States” a symposium suggested by Y/T has now taken up at Nomocracy in Politics. This discussion is, IMHO long overdue and I look forward to provocative debate of the pros and cons of the current order.
