Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the day to day activity of the Constitution and how it was framed in 1787. Plus, the Pagans are back and they mean business, from UVA activists demanding their anti-SSM professor’s private life be laid bare to the UK telling Catholic ObGYN Docs to leave the country the race to the fiery bottom is on. 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 the same way, while liberalism was destroying the old restrictions which interfered with the liberty of the individual and was basing political life anew on free representative institutions, the individual was losing all control over the circumstances of his daily life and becoming, more than ever before, the servant of impersonal economic forces, which absorbed all his time and energies. Human life was becoming mechanized, and man was losing his spontaneity under the vast pressure of the new material organisation.” – Christopher Dawson
Obama’s plan to defy Posse Comitatus, Article I Section 10 of Constitution by self appointing military action against American citizens to surpress rebellion or citizen unrest. BEar in mind that the Constitutional power at issue requires the “executive or application of the legislature” of a state, request the federal assistance
“They’re gonna get a bailout ahn’t they!?” GM was bailed out in an illegal, unconstitutional and predictable;y bizarre manner and that is all plain to see now that the final tally is in: GM+ $10.3 BILLION, TaxPayers -$10.3 Billion
ABBEVILLE: Brion McClanhan’s wonderful essay on the life and times of Patrick Henry as the real federalist beau ideal, not the derisive “anti-federalist” title his jealous enemies tried to hang on his legacy.
Look up in the air, it’s bird, it’s a plane, no it’s a super waste of resources, a SKYSCRAPER!” Mark Thornton explains why the surge of skyscrapers is always a sign an economic bust is near
Clyde Wilson explores the bigotry Hollywood directs at Southerners through [among other films] war movies
Watching CNN the other day, it occurred to me how wholly misplaced is the trust that is given to its bench full of female “journalists.” What is served as news would have been middle of the road chatter at one of those 10 station hair dryer shops American women of the early 1960’s held hair fashion court in. Illana Mercer at WND must be watching the same shows and reaching the same disappointing conclusions
Mordor on the Potomac, the vampire feeding off the wages of the rest of the continent only this vampire is breeding itself a ruling class growing more fat by the year while everyone else gets the Nutra-System treatment. The author suggests cutting spending but that will just send the louts to regroup for the next assault, the only real solution is to disssolve the lair and disperse the human parasites to try their hand at feeding off revenue taken-taxes-not borrowed
While we’re on the subject, just why does Mordor need to build an additional 10 nuclear attack subs seeing as how we already have 70? This $18 BILLION hole in the water we’ll poiur resources into is the reason the “durable goods” number spiked last month. Nothing to see here citizen, eat your Michelle Obama approved food purchased with printed/borrowed money and move along…toward that 2800 ft tall cliff straight ahead
I wonder what John McCain would advise President Obama to do if a Syrian citizen donned a suicide vest and blew up a CIA building in Dallas? Of course, when an American citizen dons that vest and blows up a government building in Syria he gets an “attaboy” from McCain et al. Will Assad get the joke?
Dear Leader foreign policy address: We must not always use our military except whehn we have to use our military which is almost always and even then our military must train other militaries to act all, you know, U.S. military-ie. This speech sounded like it came from someone confused over the order of the words on the page. “Is that make love not war or… you know… make bombs with love?”
America-Secede Or Die. The Great State of Jefferson is about to become a reality if NoCal voters approve the measure to go to the next step (likely). Will Sacramento send in troops to put down the rebellion?
PagaNation: For you who remain unconvinced that the war we are most urgently going to be fighting, very soon, is for the very souls or souls of our civilization. The SSM, “there can be no rules based on Faith in professional life” crowd has just won the day in Britain where Catholics training to become M.D.’s in OBGYN are told they are better off EMIGRATING than trying to gain a license in the U.K. This is coming to the U.S. and anyone who thinks the Tea Party or the “grass roots” is going to stop it is woefully mis-informed.
PagaNation II: The Pagans are back and they are angry. Now comes a pair of homosexual activists at UVA who file a FOIA request for a professors cellphone records and travel records because…wait for it… he openly opposes SSM
Scratch Governor Bobby Jindal off the [r]epublican list (if he was ever on it). The geniuses in the LA Legislature, who have presided over the evisceration of private property and low tax integrity (LA is in top 10 for declining median income since 2001) now want to try their hand at “fixing the healthcare system” while guaranteeing coverage for pre-existing conditions. That’s a fancy way of saying that everyone who is healthy is guaranteed either A. higher premiums or B. Reduced benefits under current premiums
DeceptiCONNED: So Obama explains under what conditions (and there are many) he would commit the graduating officers at West Point to yet another war and then he is accused of “leading from behind” or of being “feckless” without any of the armchair drone pilots explaining their version of how the world works under America’s thumb
Jeremy Scahill – He of Dirty Wars fame – Says the U.S. is in cahoots with Australia when it comes to using drones to spy on and strike its own citizens
NY Post hints that the young ladies who refused to have sex with Elliott Rodgers (the Santa Barbara killer) were what “triggered” his rampage
What does the Catholic Church have to say about the “modesty” of young ladies? Well, read this to discover that the insensitive boobs at NY Post are more right than they are wrong
Amid the howls of DecptiCONS, Obama promises to draw Afghanistan troop levels down to to 10,000 and then to 0.0 by 2016. So the question is, why wait to 2 years to withdraw? All you’re doing is putting 10,000 American troops at risk while exacerbating already simmering tensions
First they came for Brendan Eich, then they came for Donald Sterling now the “transgender community” takes out New York morning radio team who dared discussthe publicly financed sex change operation on a NY City employee
The father of one of the Santa Barbara slaying victims, Richard Martinez, has a right to be outraged at the State (Congress) that is wholly unqualified to deal with mental health issues or any other medical care (see the VA debacle)
The “system” that is supposed to deal with the mentally deranged failed miserably and lethally in Santa Barbara Friday in the rampage shooting perpetrated by Elliott Rodgers

WaPo: Slick Hilly is her own worst enemy when it comes to what she is or is not hiding in any given week
WaPo: Slick Hilly is her own worst enemy when it comes to what she is or is not hiding in any given week
WaPo editorial: The VA debacle is actually a running tally of the true cost of our never-ending wars Here’s some more fuel for the “Tea Party sold-out to the GOP” crowd.“The Great GOP-Tea Party Merger”.
This is what always bugged me about the TP i.e. it was only about principles so long as they could be pushed on one political party (guess which one). The essay does not point out that after GOP takeovers in the state-houses and governor’s mansions referred to, what is there to show in the form of fiscal and social policy? The fact is that until leaders emerge who are willing to suggest that there be a re-ordering of the Union, there will be no change in the [r]epublican direction.
Boehner & co. pass a poor excuse for a bill “to curb the NSA’s abuses” but how can that be when all the spooks would need is an emergency (declared by whom?) or their best friends ta the FISA Court to order that Facebook fork over bulk data. All this bill does is guarantee the sale of more software, this time to catalog things to be stored that were already being catalogued differently
Hey Steve! (the caller who demanded to know where I got my “fraudulent put-down of student loan” info) I guess the REAL-LIFE stories of those mired in student loan debt don’t count unless they come from the HEIC (head educators in charge) bureau right?
Maybe you’d like to help pay this gentleman’s $20k in laons before Sallie Mae takes his GRANDMA’S house as payment?
Instead the bleeding of “support” is symptom of what I have been warning of, the belief that the GOP could be changed and remade in the Tea Party image So you didn’t read my primer on how the Congress Snatched The Power to Own Lands?
If you live in New Mexico, please get up to speed on what the President just did in confiscating 500,000 acres under an 1894 SCOTUS decision & 1897 [illegal] Act of Congress.
So why would AT&T fork over $40 BILLION for DirecTV when the TV/OnDemand delivery system is in such flux? Simple, they want a monopoly on the NFL and its “Sunday Ticket” service so that the already ridiculous rules governing who watches what NFL game, where will be expanded to curtail any viewing of games outside of your “area” unless of course you will fork over $200 to AT&T for DirecTV.
If AT&T were a passenger train company and NFL fans passengers, this would be the setup for a SCOTUS case Are Pro-Life, Pro-Family Catholics & Christians prepared for the persecution that is at hand?
Dr. John George warns at annual Catholic Prayer Breakfast that “The days of socially acceptable Christianity are over. The days of comfortable Catholicism are past. It is no longer easy to be a faithful Christian, a good Catholic, an authentic witness to the truths of the Gospel. A price is demanded and must be paid. There are costs of discipleship—heavy costs, costs that are burdensome and painful to bear.”

My Latest piece at the Daily Caller .”Robespierre’s rotting carcass and burning soul finally have something to smile about. Let’s hope it takes the Chinese a few months to mold, then sharpen, the blades on the guillotines they must surely be building for the American thought police who, no doubt, are already gearing up for another purge…”
“The conservative ‘movement’ has failed”, so sayeth Gerald Russello at Nomocracy in Politics. Mr Russello is making the the argument that Russell Kirk made and that I have been echoing: the project to halt then convert progressives into conservatives has failed. The effort to make all facets of life, market “based” and thus subject to the state’s omnipotence has failed.
When will “conservatives” realize the field is lost, the solutions are aged and well known and get about the business of implementing them? I post a lot of writings on this page that might not be so easy to digest, the following review of Sovereignty: God, State, and Self. By Jean Bethke Elshtain by David Gordon is worth slogging through as you will encounter my recurring theme of late: Our future lies in our past acceptance of mystery (albeit with iPads) and law subordinate to God’s Law.

Why is it a bad idea to have a standing army just laying around? CATO, the 18th century Whig, read by most of the Founders, explains as an Englishmen, meaning this school of thought comes from the conservative tradition the Founders inherited and defended

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.

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
