Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, Welcome to mikechurch
.com’s Pile of Prep, all the materials used to prepare the Mike Church show. Stephen Masty asks a question I have asked before: should stupid people vote. While the answer might seem obvious to some the real point of the exercise is to demonstrate the fragility of “healthy democracy”, which like every other organism has a life and yes a death. This death occurred back around 1917 and ‘Muricah has been “The Walking Dead Republic”. “To summarise… what began as free thought has now developed into freedom from thought. All through history, there have been broad conceptions of the aims of life, tests of morality which masses of men have held and applied with certainty; but in the modern,world these various systems have been abandoned and what is left of them is nothing but debris – a collection of broken bits, the ruins of past philosophies. There are some, like myself, who hold a mystical philosophy, a belief that behind human experience there are realities, powers of good and evil, and the final test for things is their influence for good or evil. The good power intends us to be happy and we are justified in being happy, but the real question is not whether we are happy, but whether, behind the things wherein we seek our happiness lies the, power of good. Are they parts of the good or of the evil?” – G.K. Chesterton, A lecture on Utilitarianism

MBD: How the GOP Presidential Field has adopted a fantasy in Iraq and Syria “foreign policy.” What is really troubling about this is Dougherty’s reporting that a research paper, authored by civilians, snuggled up in air-conditioned think tank rooms at the American Enterprise Institute, concluded that an all out ground assault led by American forces, backed up by American air and naval power is “the only solution” to the U.S. inspired problem of ISIS.
The Trump Utility Company: Chesterton saw the rise of Utilitarianism in England in the early days of the 20th century: the philosophy (most call it ideology today) that Man is only as good as his utility to other men. Thus Donald Trump is good for other men and politics because his utility is creating wealth thus creating “jobs” but in creating jobs, you must also create displacement for those who accept the jobs and then the despair of those who lose the jobs. The Utility of Trump politically is that he ” is not part of the Establishment”, therefore, the Establishment being tried and hanged for heresy against populism, Trump must be a “good”. The problem with this is, there is nothing said or even intimated in either of Trump’s utilities of his First Principles, for it those principles that must guide him in the affairs of State that have no utility beyond the pursuit of the Common Good.
Spyin’ Eyes Love The Bush Family – Gee, what a coincidence, the family that partly-began political life as spooks (Bush was head of the CIA once) has demonstrated a careers-long skill to fund and expand and make wealthy the companies who benefit directly from the rise of the spyfare state. Jebediah Bush is an obedient son in this regard, but don’t worry, we NEED THIS! (for our own good against “evildoers”)
The CMP was RIGHT to Deceive The Monsters of Planned Parenthood – As Hans Fienne recounts, Augustine addressed this scenario in several of his works which helped form the written foundations for Christian thought on morality. “The clear purpose of the CMP actors claiming to be representatives from a fledgling stem cell company was not to shame or bankrupt those who have little regard for the humanity of the unborn. The purpose was and remains to stop them from killing the unborn.”
Liar Liar, Planned Parenthood On Fire! Augustine wrote in his Retractions book (recounting his past mistakes) that there are lies that can be told for the god of those to which they are told or for the good of those affected by the error being committed that the lie attempts to stop.
John Kasich goes all Frugal Frugalitson on us but still wants to EXPAND the Navy by a full 1/3, calling for an increase from 10 aircraft carries to FIFTEEN. I might ask what will the carriers do when they run out of sea borne terrorists to chase or countries to offer “air-support” to? Can we purchase luxury suites on them for a “cruise” to Jakarta?
Trumpzilla-ites: “Either you back The Donald or YOU are part of the Establishment… part of the problem!” This statement has several flaws in it the least of which is that in time, prior to 40 days ago, Trump WAS part of “The Establishment”. I will turn your attention back to Dr Charles Murray though, in an interview with me sometime ago, Dr. Murray pleaded his case for Elite Americans to lead by example and by affirmation which is to say call a bastard a bastard and a gentlemen a gentleman but be afraid to call them “free to make their own decisions”.
Slick Hilly’s Got This – Ross Douthat concurs with my assessment that Mrs. Clinton cannot be stopped from becoming the DNC’s coronated Empress come next August UNLESS Joseph R Biden decides he wants in and Obama has to pull the plug on Hillary’s amnesty
DeceptiCONNED: It is not often that I quote NY Times Editorial Board Statements but when I do, it’s about UnJUST war-hawks. Stay Graceful my friends…
The Iraq War WAS and REMAINS a disaster in every conceivable measurement and yet the GOP war-hawks have positioned their entire Presidential field to tacitly endorse it and thus get on board with continuing the re-invasion and occupation process. This is never-ending war for the sake of weapons contractor’s profits and oil shiek’s patronage that will do lasting damage to the ‘Muricah because it will cause citizens to take the GOP side as well.
Express Elevator to Hell Lost a Few Passengers – StemExpress the company implicated by the CMP videos of Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts has now severed its relationship with PP, thus lightening the load, slightly, on this human sacrifice express elevator to Hades. If PP’s biggest client in CA has jumped the ship, PP must be becoming a commercial liability and that is great news.
Meanwhile the CMP has defeated the Stem Express attempt to suppress videos of company executives yet to be released by CMP, purported to show the process of acquiring whole, in-tact fetuses and possibly the methods used by PP. This only make sense seeing the damage control effort Stem Express has launched but the question remains- will the sub-pagan American sheople care and force a change of corrupt, demonic culture?
The Trump Bandwagon Is Getting Filled, Because it Pays – The latest opinion-media obsession has become the “Donald Trump actually has the media and psychology skills to win the GOP nomination AND become President”. Read highlights from this growing phenomena that is an excuse for opinion composition but has little composition and sporting cliches as opinion. One of the more obvious fallacies of this “writing” is its elevation of the popular as equivalent to the profound. The profound requires no one to record its profundity while the popular is only so because it is recorded and then repeated by those too lazy to look up the definition of or pursue the profound. e.g. Roosevelt, Lenin, Castro and Obama were popular while St. Pius X, Chesterton, Buckley and Ferrara are profound.
Dirty Jobs = Dirty Philosophy? – I won’t comment today on Dirty Jobs’ Mike Rowe’s response to a letter asking how he handles rejection but I will hint that the Error of Modernity is hard at “dirty” work in it, though I suspect that this would not occur to 98% of readers. Please send me an email or leave a comment here if you spot it.
INCORPORATIONISTAS STRIKE BACK – Freedom FROM Religion will get it’s day in court in CO but the first amendment won’t be there, and it shouldn’t be BUT the CO Constitution’s Freedom of Religion clause should be
The Colorado Constitution actually has a very robust Freedom of Religion Clause in it.
Patrick J Buchanan thinks the Trump surge poses a genuine threat to the GOP and the Trumpisatas are a political force that if denied will retaliate with a 3rd party run and a permanent resignation from the GOP. While Buchanan’s points about over what issues/events Trump has gained popularity have resonance, without addressing the why, which is certainly not on Trump’s or any other candidate’s “table..of options” will only lead to another fork down the wrong, error strewn road of positively secular governors over a compliant secular society
Don’t Throw The Bath Water Out With The [aborted] Baby! – New CMP video shows Planned Parenthood contractors Stem Express assisted in harvesting baby parts like they were buying spark plugs and oil filters. For their demonic role, PP, in this video, took entire fetuses from women and some without consent. With the deliberately slow pace CMP of video releases and the content of this one I wager that the next video contains footage of actual whole babies in some stage of of being prepped for sale…but don’t worry, we have Hillary’s emails!
Marco Rubio, Not Eligible and Not Intelligible Either – MBD sums up the “Team America” bellicosity of Senator Rubio’s “foreign policy” in one paragraph. “Rubio’s contention is that any bad behavior on the part of these regimes is somehow caused by the latitude the United States provides them. It casts the United States as omnipotent force on the world stage. And this leads to a hyper-interventionist mindset that says that foreign governments behaving badly is the fault of American non-interventionists, and that American-inflicted chaos and death is the fault of foreign states intransigently resisting benevolent Yankee will.”
DeceptiCONNED and TRUMPED? – At a townhall meeting in NH Senator Paul explains just why Trump is the epitome of “fake conservatives” and ramps up the campaign to stop people from becoming what I call “Trumped”, easily explained as infatuation with the alternate reality that a rearranging of the deck chairs on the sinking Titanic can stop the descent
New York State of Mindlessness – The Empire state building is famous for may things including being lit up with various lighting combinations, that have shown, for example, Christ’s Cross. Now, The Big Rotten Apple, firmly in the possession of Baphomet, is lit up with a Hindu “Goddess” that is clearly a real world Demon
Another “celebration” has passed for the annual ‘Murican sacrament of worshipping the “courage” of Harry Truman in dropping incendiary nuclear bombs on to civilian populations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki (the only Catholic city in Japan). The fact that Truman remains heroic and not a war criminal tells us a lot about our ignorance of ius ad bellum -Just War Theory – today
Digital Adultery Addiction=Hooked On Hookups – The devaluing of human life brought on by the rejection of the natural order and the Reveled supernatural Order has reached its end. “Hookup culture” embellished by the revolution of digital adultery via “Tinder” and “Hinged” make having rampant sex as easy as ordering pizza. There should be no mystery then to the sheople’s reticence in abolishing abortion or foregoing contraception. At least the pizza doesn’t come with venereal disease or eternal damnation. CAUTION: There’s VERY graphic, sexual language in the Vanity Fair piece. Speaking of the Deadly Sin of Vanity, from the piece we get this prince charming:
” “It’s instant gratification,” says Jason, 26, a Brooklyn photographer, “and a validation of your own attractiveness by just, like, swiping your thumb on an app. You see some pretty girl and you swipe and it’s, like, oh, she thinks you’re attractive too, so it’s really addicting, and you just find yourself mindlessly doing it.” “Sex has become so easy,” says John, 26, a marketing executive in New York. “I can go on my phone right now and no doubt I can find someone I can have sex with this evening, probably before midnight.” “WHERE’S THE WOMENS HEALTHCARE, PP? – So how many mammography centers does Planned Parenthood run/operate in the U.S.? Remember, the pushback against its being forced to permanently fast from the Federal trough is all those “health services” it provides to women in need. Well it can now be revealed that Planned Parenthood runs exactly ZERO mammography centers. That’s right zero point zero…NONE. Sean Davis has all the details
It will come as no surprise but should still shock any reader’s senses to know that the man behind the Gurney Kill Butcher Shop videos showing Planned Parenthood’s monsters haggling over prices for the body parts of aborted babies has a video that shows the company Stem Express’s executives ADMITTING THAT THEY RECEIVE FULLY INTACT BABIES for their “research”. David Saleidan, the Center for Medical Progress’s leader says this then raises the question of babies being born alive, THEN “aborted”.
The history of the “Fairness Doctrine” shows that even IF the FCC is successful in ignoring the courts and defying Congress there will always be room for the hope of a future appeal succeeding
