Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the latest from a world gone mad. A government whose every agent now seems on an accelerated path to removing any vestige of Christian law and submission to God that remains in our civil institutions? 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. “[what matters to us now is] the construction of local forms of community within which civility and the intellectual and moral life can be sustained through the new dark ages which are already upon us. And if the tradition of the virtues was able to survive the horrors of the last dark ages, we are not entirely without grounds for hope. This time however the barbarians are not waiting beyond the frontiers; they have already been governing us for quite some time. And it is our lack of consciousness of this that constitutes part of our predicament. We are waiting not for a Godot, but for another—doubtless very different—St. Benedict.“ – Alasdair Macintyre, After Virtue
Scotland – Secede or Die: Voter registration is now proceeding at a record pace as Scots yearn to get their vote/voices heard on the Sept 18th referendum on Independence from the U.K.
Article V debate held in VA concludes not to conclude anything. Recall the Article V Amendment Convention symposium held at the XM studios in April 2010, you can READ the entire proceedings transcript here
Remember the Giffords? The couple from upstate New York, framed by radical lesbians for “discrimination” because they would not commit mortal isn and host a “gay wedding” IN their own home? Well they have decided to get out of the hosting wedding ceremony business as a result but I wonder how long it will be before some more radicals decide to compel them to reopen their ceremony business on the grounds that accommodating “receptions” for “gays” requires accommodating the event that PRECEDES the reception. Don’t laugh, these people, do not rest until people like the Giffords have been shamed into renouncing their faith or financial ruin (in their chosen field)
DeceptiCONS Rejoice: 54% of Americans now say the U.S. isn’t “doing enough to solve the world’s problems” meaning its time to give another go to bombing and assassinations and occupations and sanctions and threats of… you get the picture
[r]emnants unite: If Christian Men are serious about “taking our country/culture back” then the first step is to acknowledge that nothing less than divine supernatural power is needed to subdue the evil supernatural power currently ruling the affairs of most men. Failure to take this first step will only send the life raft further down the river, towards the falls, unmanned an useless. Archbishop Charles J. Chaput dares say in public and in print what needs saying and contemplating. “[To rebuild the culture of Christendom] Because we seek Jesus, we will never be fully at home in a world that rejected and killed him. The Letter to the Hebrews reminds us that ‘here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.’ ” (Heb 13:14) Drop this on the heads of those willing to pledge life and death to a “shining city on a hill” and you will see that this task is more war than battle and the combatants may surprise you.
Professional hand-wringers who moonlight as concerned doctors studying “nutrition” conclude that the poor are getting more fat and eating worse food now than they did BEFORE SNAP and Michelle Obama edicts spread across “school lunch programs” for example but the rich are eating fabulously. Perhaps this is because the “poor” are also told they must consume everything that is NOT food in sight in order to attain happiness (pick any “reality” tv show for evidence of this raison de’tre)
I am heartened to see the theft of Jennifer Lawrence et al’s photos be categorized as THEFT and not a “leak”. Still, the question remains, what kind of depraved male population provides such a desperate market for what amounts to the tools of adultery. Again, because the Church has been so lacking in its unified condemnation of internet sin and all that it entails, men really can claim ignorance of [God’s] law.
Right on cue: TV and internet media spring into action to now extend the life of the Jennifer Lawrence et al story by having Apple confirm that iCloud was NOT at fault but that creases in individual security were. Hmmm, I wonder who would have an incentive to perpetrate such a “crime”?
Then cue the next B roll “opinion piece” where we learn that what I predicted on today’s show has already been fulfilled: “We live in a culture with a peculiar relationship to female celebrity. In much the same way that misogyny tells men that women are there for male consumption, the public and media tell us that famous women are public property.” This leaves no-room for the discussion of the mortal sins of vanity and pride that are at the root of the nude “selfie”. At the risk of being called all manner of squishy names I wonder if the nude selfies will remain as popular as the infallible body of St Bernadette of Lourdes, 120 years deceased now (but looking very beautiful and alive)
Vlad the Impaler or Vlad the Saint in the making? Patrick J Buchanan wonders if the thoughtless denunciation of Putin’s admonitions against the pagan, Western world were just propaganda or actul statements of faith?
SECEDE or DIE: Scotland approaches historic vote on Independence as polls show the gap between “Yes” and “No” closing to a mere six points! 53-47
NOMOCRACY: Lincoln & The American Union, The Fourth Great Religion religion
Why how very polite yet still, constitutionally perverted of Obama to “notify” Congress he had “chosen” to initiate bombing runs over Iraq for “humanitarian purposes” which I assume now means we can have President’s wield our military for earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts and AIDS epidemics
Democrats attack Senator Rand Paul for his “attack on America” op-ed as if cautioning war mongers in both parties against choosing sides in the Syrian-ISIS struggle is anything other than an intervention of the kind (the stupid kind) urged by McCain & company last year AGAINST Assad and WITH ISIS
Guess who else is emerging as a U.S. “ally” against ISIS? Yeah, that country McCain, Santorum & every other DeceptiCON alive have wanted to go to war with the last 15 years: Iran
Black Mass update: OK City’s “Mass” is still opposed by many with petitions now bearing 70,000 signatures against the “service” however, just WHERE is the Church Militant on this? if this blasphemy is to take place there should be an army of Catholics outside the “service” praying to Our Lady & St Michael to bring the event to a close
Not satisfied with defining “marriages” and “civil unions”, “transgendered” and other “emerging sexualities” the State of CA now wades into defining exactly what is and what is not “consensual sex” which is funny considering backers of this insanity were the same hippie pagans demanding that “government stay out of my bedroom” all those years ago.
Many readers and listeners have communicated their abject fear of ISIS coming to the U.S., using the horror of mass executions of 150 people in one day as justification for their fear. “These are people, some Christians that are being killed, Mitter Church, we have to bomb them” you cry! While I pray daily for an end to these demons inspired by the so-called “prophet” I also pray for and fear the mass executions that happen EVERY DAY IN THE UNITED STATES AT ABORTION MILLS. The statistics say that 1.07 MILLION Americans were executed, without trials, at abortion clinics in 2011. If you want to stop mass executions, the evil, macabre lurking inside too many Americans hearts, carried out by butchers at abortion clinics is a great place to start.
Don’t look now but the name “Mohammed” has become the most common new name among new borns in Norway and lest anyone think the Islam takeover of Europe without invading with an army has stalled, Muhammd also rules the nurseries of the U.K. too
Matt Walsh wants to know why nekkid pictures of “celebrities” like Jennifer Lawrence, which are also STOLEN, are such an attraction? Are there NO RULES of morality that apply any longer to online content?
Maybe the people pre-occupied with internet nudity could assist in trying to REBUILD the Christian, western culture instead of pushing it over the cliff?
Federal judge tells UT to go have sex with itself and start printing marriage licenses for MULTIPLE wives/husbands because polygamy is back and it is legal baby! I’m not really excited about this so much as I have run out of superlatives to describe the demonic rot taking hold in every institution of life, fostered and then made legal, scratch that, REQUIRED, by Leviathan
I was accosted by several polygamists and now polyamorysts when I posted my reaction to the UT ruling and then challenged to prove “why is polyamory wrong?” To answer that requires 1. That you believe in 1 Holy Mother Church and 2. That you believe her canon is sacred. and infallible if you meet 1 & 2 then 3. is that you want to honor the teaching and pursue a state of grace by discovering the real reason for marriage to begin with, find that answer, among other places, here
I wonder what Owen would say about this VERY protective mother and blogger who found out her seven year old son had been searching for and watching porno on his iPad AFTER she installed porn filters on the device? The kid knew he had seen things he wasn’t supposed to and confessed to his mother, this prompted the very lengthy discussion she has now had with him and is still having with him. Of course the “kids are always going to see this stuff so we may as well prepare them for it” crowd will I’m certain, pile on the mom and call her every synonym there is for hypocrite but that will not change the raw fact that this will keep happening, and not only does it poison the kids minds, what is it doing to minds and SOULS of the performers?
In the last 3 months we’ve covered one woman’s filming of her abortion then bragging about it like it was a “hook up” at Starbucks now we have NPR (nat’l Communist radio) airing a glowing puff piece on 3rd trimester abortionists titled “After Tiller”. If there was film of third trimester horses being aborted there would be outrage but in the U.S. these days, outrage is posting your disapproval on Facebook then going to Starbucks for “brunch”
Michael Scheuer: If the intervention in the Middle East continues AND if the imbecile war-hawks get their way to gin up a new war in Syria/Iraq, IS will only get bigger and stronger and another American defeat will be close at hand.
I have been saying for nearly 2 years that Libya’s problems including BenGhazi were the result of “Mrs Clinton & Obama’s original sin” of deciding to help assassinate Ghadaffi. I even had Michael Scheuer on the show to beef up the argument. It is gratifying to see that since Senator Rand Paul “broke” this point of view on Sunday, now the bandwagon is filling up, which is a wonderful thing to see because Hillary must be stopped.
This is another great read by Joseph Pearce, this time taking on the Darwinists in ‘What is Man?” I received an email from a listener today, informing me that I must stop saying “our goal is to get to heaven” (I actually say as Fathers our goal is to get wives and children to heaven then work on our own tickets) because “all that is needed is to live a good life…and angels will swoop down and bring you to heaven upon your death.” While I appreciate the suggestion to live it up and Sin while stopping at a few soup kitchens that is not how Christians, true to Holy Mother Church are taught. In this piece Pearce sums up what must be done. “Another understanding of man, related to the Greek anthropos, is that of homo viator, the travelling man or the man on the journey of life, the man whose purpose is to get Home by taking the adventure that life throws at him. The archetypal homo viator in western culture is perhaps Odysseus but, in Christian terms, the archetype is the mediaeval Everyman, who gets to heaven through his good works and the help of the Christian sacraments. For the Christian, every man is homo viator, whose sole purpose (and soul’s purpose) is to travel through the adventure of life with the goal of getting to heaven, his ultimate and only true home, facing many perils and temptations along the way.”
Catholic Gentlemen, you are needed on the battlefield in 10, 9, 8… There are some things every Knight of Our Lord’s chivalry can do in the most secular workplaces to drop faith markers in a gracious manner. Here are just a few (I do the prayer at every meal one regardless of the company)
And one more on how we as Remnant Church Militant must go “weapons hot” into battle against the secular tsunami
Joe Friday (TV’s “Dragnet”) could never have imagined the dragnet the NSA has bee pulling behind its super-spy-skiff the last 12 years. A new report reveals the agency has been mining meta data it was never authorized to gather AND the agency inside the NSA that was supposed to monitor this illicit deception didn’t even know it was going on until 2010
Buchanan: If there’s anyone who needs to recuse themselves from the Ferguson shooting inquest it is not St Louis DA Robert McCulloch it is the AG of the US, Eric Holder who has no jurisdiction in municipal matters (IF we are following the Constitution as ratified and amended)
How to separate the New Age pagan from their beliefs into the beliefs of the one, true Church may be easier than many think but first, the converters must believe and ACT like they believe
DeceptiCONS are about to hand ISIS the “holy war” it desperately needs to fund its perverted “Islamic” campaign against most anyone, Christians and Shia Muslims included
Never-Ending War follies: Remember when Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Kelly Ayotte et al wanted to ARM and EQUIP those “rebels” that were going to eradicate the evil Bashar al Assad from his legitimate office in Syria? Well, turns out, our “allies” were ISIS, the Mohameddans who have killed all those Christians in Iraq and non-conforming Muslims in Iraq & Syria and now have captured and control their SECOND military base in Syria.
I am not clear how and Egyptian feminist’s “pooping” on the ISIS flag, totally nude and being photographed is supposed to stop the Jihadis from beheading and marauding but AMERICAN feminists seem to be in support of vulgarity for the sake of —– and there’s the rub.

The case for forcing the U.S. Dollar back on the gold standard is building. Many voices that remain in the politics fight (there are fewer and fewer) rightly see the gold standard (or some version of it) as the ONE THING that can kill many Leviathan birds with one, golden, stone. It can also be one way to “restore Reagan’s soul”
After the evil and inhuman beheading of journalist James Foley, President Obama should call Congress into session and immediately obtain both offensive and defensive war powers to be used against ISIS as President’s Jefferson, Washington, Adams, Madison and Monroe did for similar circumstances to protect American commerce and life in foreign affairs where ISIS may be operating (subject to current treaties).

If you have taken my [r]epublican Challenge #1 (for Fathers) then you probably have a good handle on what to do when confronted with situations that can easily lead into violent, parental, episodes. This FL dad confronted one such episode and dealt with it heroically (yay) only to use the event to a gain a shameful advantage.

Did you know that in 1865, 7,000 Confederation citizens sailed to Brazil and set up a community there and are STILL there today? Hmmmm, maybe there IS still a place to seek refuge from Obama’s Leviathan
Today’s Latin Phrase of the Day: “Et Libertas set pectus purim et fermium gestate; alias res obnoxiosae note in obscura latent.” Liberty is having a pure and dauntless heart; all else is slavery and hidden darkness
