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 latest indication Sen. Rand Paul is indeed pursuing 2016 by wooing the young at Berkley. Crimea’s secession is now 4 days old & the hawks still think they have a card to play against Vlad. 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. “In Montesquieu’s judgment, the legislature within a modern republic would be in serious danger of succumbing fully to executive influence only in the unlikely event that the management of commerce and industry within that republic were somehow, to a very considerable extent, entrusted to the executive. In such a polity should the populace in general and the middle class in particular ever be beholden to government for their economic well-being, the situation of the citizens would indeed be grim” Paul A. Rahe Soft Despotism, Democracy’s Drift: Montesquieu, Rousseau, Tocqueville, and the Modern Prospect.
Spyin’ Eyes Are Misty – NSA claims it cannot divulge how much water it will need from Utah because that “is a matter of National Security”. Again, say this two words and you can get away with nearly anything if you are government
Berkeley isn’t just for doped out, weirdo libs anymore as Senator Rand Paul woos a crowd there with anti NSA bromides. “The first African-American president ought to be a little more conscious of the fact of what has happened with the abuses of domestic spying. Martin Luther King was spied upon, civil rights leaders were spied upon, Muhammad Ali was spied upon, antiwar protesters were spied upon… the possibility for abuse in this is incredible.”
The latest from the NSA is just mind-boggling. The agency can record 1 months worth of phone calls from an entire COUNTRY and then play them back as an analyst requests. If this capability exists for a foreign country imagine what they are doing with OUR calls and also, what if the country is Russia or China? This brings the cyber war to your and my desktops in a manner that is frightening. Do you want to be the target of Chinese spies? This program is called MYSTIC and joins twin brother PRISM in unprecedented surveillance.
Well whaddayouknow, the NSA programs are carried out under an Executive Order signed by President Reagan in 1981
SHOCKUH: There are over 5 MILLION feds with security clearance. BOGGER SHOCKUH: The NSA has now been charged with monitoring all of them. I wonder what Senator Feinstein will say about that? Point is, the Leviathan created a crisis, filled it with security clearance, creates a new crisis of those employees “leaking” and now “fixes” the new crisis with…. MORE Leviathan, is this a great scam or what!?
Spyin’ Eyes II – The NSA is also pretending to be YOUR Facebook page so you will give it access to your hard drive, download malware and open your personal life up for all the janitors and “analysts” that want to see it. Does anyone remember the spoof app “Spoofbook?” this is Spoofbook with a criminal agenda
American war-hawks are eager, proud and just down right giddy over being named to Russia’s “sanction list” the mimics the one Obama is said to be crafting for Russian diplomats. In other words “Great! we are honored to be the catalysts for the beginning of a new world war that will see tens of millions dead, trillions in property damage but ouer fortunes as elites enhanced.”
Dear Leader Obama is taunted by Russians who should be suffering “sanctions” imposed by the imperial chancellor of the first galactic empire-the U.S.
Do we really need “scientific research” to demonstrate the point that materialistic people are not very happy people? Perhaps because they are relentlessly in pursuit of things that once obtained are useless and do not add joy to one’s life like choosing to perform acts of charity with no sign of reward in sight
Hello American DeceptiCONS and Jacobins, meet your new heroes: The torture doctors who supervised, indeed prescribed methods to increase pain to the threshold of death before “officially” advising the torturers to back off
Hump Day Surprise: So you wanted Mitt Romney to be President because Rand Paul endorsed him. Hmm, would Paul have endorsed Romney’s view of Ukraine and Crimea and the options available to Dear Leader Chairman MaObama? If so, Obama was the right choice…
St Patrick was canonized, in part, because of his virtue in resisting sins against chastity, yet parades named in his honor are now succumbing to the demands of people who wish to be recognized for their particular method of committing sins against chastity!? Time to pick new beers, Guinness, Harp, and Sam Adams might deserve a second look
Here’s a howler – Captain Constitution shredder, President Obama tells Vlad the Impaler that he will not recognize Crimea’s vote because it violates Ukraine’s Constitution!
You’ll secede when we tell you to and not before! “American diplomats” pull out all the stops to attempt to stop Crimea’s referendum tomorrow and have now resorted to calling the act an “annexation” by Russia!
Still McCain: Predictabley, Senator McCain warns that Crimea’s vote for independence will change all kinds of “considerations” over Russia’s “aggression” and will cause western allies to treat Putin’s country like the pro-intervention, global force for good it has be… of wait, that’s how the rest of the planet views us
STAND MEN OF THE WEST! STAND – Stephen Klugewicz’s call to the ramparts to defend Christian Western civilization, regardless of the outcome and defiant of the “no, we must get with the times to survive”, “conservative” defeatists
Everybody wants to rule the world. Rep. Peter King of the tiny empire of New York, demands that the huge American Empire should swoop into Malaysia and kick the hick,hayseed, Crash investigators working for the Malaysian government, to the curb and let us take over
Daniel Larison wants to know why every journalist and op-ed writer alive remains CONVINCED that the only reason anyone on earth does anything is because of what the U.S. President does immediately beforehand. Fiolks this is a delusional state of being here that all options must flow through John Kerry and John McCains approval system before they happen
Ladies and gentleman, welcome the new queen of American Exceptionalism and I mean “ism” as in a sickness, Peggy Noonan of the WSJ
Speaking of offering centralized or corrupted views to fix political and familial corruption, exactly how will the process that has resulted in the inversion of 83% of all women being stay at home moms in 1960 be reversed? The end result of 83% of women being full-time workers is 2 parents working for similar “take home” pay but what about the kids? The dog? The GARDEN!?
FLASHBACK: Kevin Gutzman proposed breaking up the states, post Bush v Gore, in 2001 by retelling the story of Virginia’s 1829 Constitution which gave the people of the individual counties the right to divide or “secede” from their current geographic boundaries

Patrick J Buchanan: Who and what is Vladimir Putin? Well folks he could be an ally, and I mean that in the free trade sense of the word, but instead he is being caricatured by American war-hawks into a madman who must be stopped at ALL costs. Gee and I wonder who will bear those costs in blood and treasure? Secede before its too late and McCain, Obama, Kristol, Fox, MSNBC et al get us into WWIIII
The forgotten Baron de Mandeville was the inspiration behind the work of Adam Smith and Samuel Johnson, Scots who developed the theories of capital use for productivity and the first dictionary “We did build that” is an interesting read
Putin uses Western media to defend the secession of Crimea from the Ukraine, yes he is an authoritarian, yes he is President of the Big Bad Russian bear but he still write better op-eds than Obama or John McCain
ST PATRICK’S DAY UPDATE: I lamented the fact that this great Saint of the Catholic Church and to the people of Ireland has had his celebration day, contained in the Church’s calendar on March 17 for centuries, turned into a spectacle of sex and hedonism. The incompatibility of the two celebrations should be clear to all, save those secular pagans who insist that the Saint and the church “converted” the Irish by force. Here is a translation of St Patrick’s journal, chronicling who it was that murdered the Irish and why.
Whose fault was WWII? If you ask any CPAC attendee they will answer “It was our fault because we turned Isolationist and din’t do enough to stop Hitler…then there’s the pacifist Neville Chamberlain…” Well, well class, is that CPAC war-hawk right? Not according the history books as recounted by Patrick J Buchanan. Matter of fact, we are, right now, setting into motion the events that could lead to Russian “aggression” so loudly talked of by some.
CPAC is the annual gathering of “conservatives” who come from all across the amber waves of non-profit grain to hear their favorite politician/speakers, meet and network with other activists in a quest to form a national conservative “message” and this year you can learn how to dig into your opponents deep, dark past and ruin his reputation while taking a tour through the lower class’s neighborhoods to learn how to speak their language and write better welfare policies for them.
Larison: Finally McCain and company have their “hard-liners” moment, a chance to get those sleeves rolled up, nukes in launch sequence, fleets mobilized and draft cards dusted off. Big war with the big Russian bear is on the table boys!
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.

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.
