Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the latest from Armistice Day 2014! 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. “Indeed, we will never understand events of the 1790s until we take seriously, as contemporaries did, the possibility of some sort of monarchy developing in America. From our vantage point the idea of America becoming a monarchy seems absurd, but in 1789 it did not seem so at all. After all, Americans had been raised as subjects of monarchy and, in the opinion of some, still seemed emotionally to need to look up to a single patriarchal figure. Republicanism was new and untried. Monarchy still prevailed almost everywhere; it was what much of the world was used to, and history showed that sooner or later most republics had tended to develop into kingly governments.” – Gordon S. Wood- George Washington Republican Monarch
The revolutionaries who ran the recent Synod have attempted to change doctrine by chaanging perception, this required deception in what was transmitted to the masses via media. We now know that the Synod actually firmed up the Church’s teaching (and thus re-affirmed Christ’s teaching) on marriage and divorcees as this headline shows: No communion for remarried divorcess who live as though they are married. PERIOD
If at First You Don’t Secede, Try, try Again – Catalan has mock referendum on Independence and votes 80.7% FOR Independence despite an official campaign from Spain to suppress the vote. Will there now be an OFFICIAL referendum like there was in Scotland?
Proving that intellectual acumen is not required to advance in politics, Harry Reid elevates Senator Elizabeth Warren to lead his minority party opposition. Somewhere, Lavergne and Shirley are lamenting taking that brewery gig. Pray tell exactly why “liberal groups” have a say so in the construct of the Senate’s minority party?
Man, I hate being right. WH mouthpiece Josh Earnest tells reporters exactly asking about GOP “opposition” to the ACA, what I told you he’d tell them, 2 years ago. “It is Republicans who have been less than forthright and transparent about what their proposed changes to the Affordable Care Act would do in terms of the choices are available to middle class families.” i.e. Republicans now have an entitlement stake and constituency in defending parts of ObamaCare
The spread of Islam and ISIS may not be related says TIC writer. I have to ask just where we might find this peaceful soul have over there
You start in town then m http://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/2014/December/38/12/magazine/article/10826284/
Senator Rand Paul has done what needed doing by pointing out that the current war against ISIS is NOT legal, the President AND thE Congress are both in breach of their oaths. Congress MUST act as the check on this abuse of power. “The war against the Islamic State is now illegal. The War Powers Resolution of 1973 gave President Obama 60 days to gain consent from Congress and required him to end ‘hostilities’ within 30 days if he failed to do so. This 90-day clock expired this week.”
The CIA is who won the mid-term elections. So did the BigWar and their war-hawks. Those of us who prayed there was a pivot away from never-ending wars and ridiculously stupid and lethal “interventionism” have much more arduous work left to do
CIA “Vetting” of our new buddies & allies in Syria is, according to one agent, a bit “like panning for gold”, filled with the opportunity for lethally incorrect choices
FOUNDERS PASS MEMBERS: PREP BETTER HAS BEEN UPDATED! Learn how the Republican Party “evolved” from states rights promoters to states rights opponents between 1860 and 1874
Ask your friendly neighborhood war-monger if they really think “striking ISIS” will end Middle East terrorism or even put a dent in it. It will do nothing of the sort as is explained in this accurate assessment of the DEGRADING cauldron that is the Mid-East. “Nothing can be done by the West that will solve this crisis in our generation. We must withdraw, and observe this tragedy with pity — and repentance for what we have so arrogantly and casually done.”

Obama and his NeoCON allies drew red-lines in the sand over Syria’s chemical weapons and Iran “going nuclear”, pray-tell Mr. Krauthammer what are you and the Kristol/Goldberg boys going to declare be done with Russian selling Iran 7 Nuclear Power plants!?
Take the “Perils of Perception” quiz that will test your statistical knowledge of basic demographics and citizen habits. I got 7 of 9 correct, one of the questions is not specific enough which caused one of those misses
On Veterans Day, a better understanding of “Just War Theory” is in order. The Catholic Scout, tackles the question of just what Augustine and others (St Ambrose et al) meant by “Just War”. The result of the exploration is my position seems positively like that of a war-monger
The history of Veterans (Armistice Day) Day as told by the U.S. VA. Note that the STATE legislatures enacted their own Vets related holidays, not having conceded that power to the then, proto-Leviathan
Congratulations war-hawks, the OLD Soviet, Gorbachev, tells the New NOT Soviet, Putin (and the rest of the planet) that arrogant U.S. “triumphalism” has ignited a new “cold war” where one did not exist and did not need to exist
Finally, some [r]epublican sense on the “AUMF” Obama has asked Congress for to continue illicit operation in Syria and Iraq. Doug Bandow says congress Congress should say no, St Augustine says “no” and I say “no” agreeing with St Augustine and Cicero
The Sixth Circut Court of Appeals reveres lower court decision and upholds six state’s bans on homosexual “marriage”. It is invthe DISSENTING opinion thought that Chris Ferrara says we find the real wisdon behind “judicial review: “If we in the judiciary do not have the authority, and indeed the responsibility, to right fundamental wrongs left excused by a majority of the electorate, our whole intricate, constitutional system of checks and balances, as well as the oaths to which we swore, prove to be nothing but shams.” [Chris Ferrara responds] “She happens to be right. Judicial review, guided by the objective requirements of the moral law and natural justice (cf. Hadley Arkes, “Beyond the Constitution”) would require not merely upholding a majority’s ban on same-sex marriage, but overturning a majority’s legalization of it. Today’s judicial conservatives are merely positivists, while the liberals are moralists advancing the wrong morality.”
Google continues to grow into the role of the Terminator’s “SkyNet”, developing a 330 lb, humanoid robot that looks ready to crush puny humans that get in its way (or take jobs that American won’t do, saving the importation of illegals to do the job)
So the Presidential candidates from the GOP may be concentrated in TX, FL and WI (Walker & Ryan) with the wild cards coming from KY, PA and maybe VA
AZ tries to act all “federally” again by passing a ballot initiative that will give the state recourse (they don’t need this but it won’t hurt) against unconstitutional and ill-conceived federal legislative acts…like ObamaCare. The big news here is that AZ voters have figured out the great deception at play here, from the bill’s description. “Politicians in Washington are fond of passing far-reaching laws, but more often than not they depend on state and local governments – and state and local taxpayers – to implement them.”
Dave Weigel: “So GOP, you’ve won all this power, now what will you do with it?” On the campaign trail, election night with GOP media activists reveals what I like to call the “Usual Suspects at Work”, meaning when one party grabs power” from the other the first casualty are promises made to “stop spending” which dissipates when the debate over $3.9 TRILLION in free money gets brought up
Sound investment: “Outside groups” spent $127 MILLION on 10 winning Senate campaigns, a pittance fro corrupt oligarchs when compared to the $3.9 TRILLION booty they will now scam a sizable portion of. “The victors will take their seats likely feeling grateful to interests that are hidden from their constituents and the public,” the report said.”
Stephen Klugewicz at the Imaginative Conservative writes what dare not be said of the GOP and the elite frauds that run it as an alleged “conservative” outfit: The GOP is so desperate to not be heckled by Dems & the “media” for their “racism…sexism….homophobism” et cetera that they promote the most ridiculous assortment of popular candidates like Herman Cain and now Ben Carson
Christians in Lebanon form militias to repel ISIS and their Godless, Muslim hordes
Remember the promise: There will not be any “boots on the ground” in our latest unjust war in Iraq, promise?
VIDEO FLASHBACK: President Obama promises troops that there will not be an “combat operations” in Iraq involving American troops, a promise of a distinction that is not a distinction
Race riots are expected if the Ferguson MO cop, under grand jury investigation, is NOT indicted in the death of Michael Brown. The Watts riots were nearly 50 years ago, Rodney King 22 years and the tension and tendency toward them has only grown, maybe it’s time for a course correction in human relations (note I didn’t say race relations). The Ferguson local businesses though, want nothing other than a return to normalcy.
The stock market is overvalued by a factor of 100% or more as a result of the cash casino it has become for the Fed’s money laundering operation
Are you ready for your endorsement of homosexual marriage? KS and now MS have been informed that since the Pilgrims “marriage has been a fundamental right of ALL citizens”. This brings the tally now to 30 states (28 of which) that have been judicially steamrolled into granting homosexual, and very soon, incestuous “marriages”, then polyamorous, then polygamous then, cross species then… you get the picture. Those that foolishly say “marriage should be left up to the states, now have their anti-federalist cakes to munch on while the remainder of modern Rome burns
Speaking of sacramental marriage, there are hundreds of millions of souls at stake in the perversion of this most holy and sacramental institution becoming but a secular, civil “agreement” between consenting parties. NO ONE in the modern Church and its clergy explains the reasons why this must NOT happen than Bishop Athanasius Schneider. “In fact a Divine commandment, in our case the sixth commandment, the absolute indissolubility of the sacramental marriage, a Divinely established rule, means those in a state of grave sin cannot be admitted to Holy Communion. This is taught by Saint Paul in his letter inspired by the Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians 11, 27-30, this cannot be put to the vote, just as the Divinity of Christ would never be put to a vote.”
It is legal to steal now thanks to the ballot box. 4 ballot initiatives that increased “minimum wage” were ok’d by “voters” on Tuesday pointing out the logical fallacy that one can OWN private property, capital and revenue being in that specie, when significant portions of it can be taken by a 50% of the population plus 1 vote

WARNING SIGNS OF THE BIG GLOAT ALREADY: Tea Party groups are supposed to be NON partisan I thought yet the largest national group is publicly boasting that “conservatives have taken the Senate”. This is almost identical to the euphoria and misplaced partisanship seen after the 2010 elections that swept Boehner into power.
Rod Dreher blames Rob Maness for Mary Landrieu’s survival, wondering why Rob didn’t drop out “when polls showed he didn’t have a chance”. Well, Rod, he didn’t QUIT because he isn’t a quitter and had a responsibility to execute the wishes of the 202,313 folks who voted for him, the thousands of volunteers and the thousands who donated their scant wealth to his effort, in other words, his HONOR would not let him retire, that’s admirable, Rod, and rare. And in case you’re wondering, Rob is as humble a gentleman as you will meet, read his concession speech, he said what I just said to his supporters.
Patrick J Buchanan: U.S. Voters will vote today but WHAT are they voting for? “But are the American people really voting to send arms to Kiev, to confront Russia in Ukraine, to commit to a forever-war to “degrade and ultimately defeat” the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria? Does the country really want a clash with Iran over its nuclear enrichment program? If so, the GOP should return to Washington and in the lame-duck session authorize Obama to take us to war with the Islamic State.”
TIC: The Soul of Madness has nearly overtaken the American body politic. The pagan hordes puff and snort their hatred of Our Lord, Our Lady and the moral order of Western Civilization under Christendom while demanding we stop public exhortations or more properly referred to as public ejaculations on this order and our commitment to defend it, eyes on eternity, to death.
Libs, seeing their impending demise, looming in front of them tomorrow conclude (correctly) that voting is not all it’s cracked up to be, proving the fallacy of false God elections yet again. 2 years ago the same libs paraded Obama’s re-election as the second coming of Hobbes, 4 years ago it was the first coming of Hobbes. Note the dystopian air running through the NY Times pieces quoted by the writer
