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 dawning of the age of restitution, that Americans, like it or not, will have to endure for the bellicosity of our past & current foreign policy. 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. “Thomas Jefferson was not a guru giving the holy word to his disciples, though he has been made to play that role. He certainly never considered himself to be such, indeed the very concept was alien to American discourse in his time and well after. He did not get the Declaration of Independence from Heaven and single-handedly promulgate it to initiate a world revolution of liberty and equality. He was the draftsmen who was charged with making a statement that would justify the rightfulness of the thirteen colonies having become thirteen free and independent states. As a public man Mr. Jefferson was always a representative of the people, not a prophet.” – Clyde Wilson, The REAL Mr Jefferson

Media hacks lose it in reporting on “net neutrality” ruling that basically says the Feds and FCC do NOT own the copper cables the internet travels over nor do they own the servers it is transmitted through…wait, this sounds like.. a FREE market!? Judging by the reaction from the socialists at FoxNews.com, yep, we might see some bandwidth carved out for those who will pay for it (kinda like cable TV)
The Senate’s lone (admitted) Socialist, Bernie Sanders, is drafting a letter demanding that “the Sunday News Shows: devote more time to climate change coverage. Apparently Sanders has not kept up with the 2009 news cycle that showed a decade long cooling trend which is now ramped up and headed toward a “little ice age”
Sanders may want to read Clive Best’s latest study on the causes of the 100k year ice age cycle which is certainly looking more and more like the cosmos having its way with the Earth and its puny humans, self obsessed over naturally occurring gasses, when the answer lies right in front of their Hubble telescope’s nose

Washington Irving was a writer without equal, who felt compelled to biography his namesake. This “Student Edition” of his 5 volume bio of Washington is just thrilling to read.
Paoul Anderson’s tale of time travel is an insightful reminder that our ancestors were as smart if not smarter than we are and in complete control of their technology
There’s no better long form reading project than getting familiar with John Taylor of Caroline’s “Tyranny Unmasked” quite possibly the best tract ever written on the subject of what he called “protection” but what we call “corporatism”

H.L. Mencken is worth reading on many topics but especially on Gettsyburg, you will find his entire critique of Lincoln’s “Gospel” beginning on page 173
The biography of Albert Gallatin is worth knowing and this “American Statesman” book on him is a good start John Taylor of Caroline was the most influential [r]epublican voice of his day and his work remains as necessary reading.

One of the most accomplished yet little known Founder AND Christian Gentlemen was John Randolph of Roanoke, I am researching him for reference and for a good volume on his life to republish, this one is rare and good [/private]
Have you heard the word of God today? The millennial generation is fleeing organized religion by the tens of millions but the ones that stay are asking for a deeper, more traditional liturgy-read the Extraordinary Mass & attendant sacramental rites- but where will they find such “relics” when the Catholic Church has catered to its Protestant antagonists for 50 years and has few priests that even have knowledge of the Extraordinary Mass?
The latest attempt to extend “unemployment benefits” for an additional 3 months has died in the Senate while the criminal class prepares to duke it out over the REAL money/prize: the extension of the debt ceiling and all that juicy, tender pork and patronage they get to divvy up
DeceptiCONNED: House GOP sinks its teeth into $1.1 TRILLION spending bill that makes government(unproductive) work more profitable, restores military spending to pre-sequestration levels and sends billions to Europe for “missile defense”. Why are we paying for the defense of sovereign European countries, 70 years after WWII!?
Is it pressure or is it theater? A group of congressmen wants the President to disclose the “black budget” of the SpyFare state so the public AND congress will know what is being spent by whom. Of course the usual NSA yes-men howl that “secrecy is at stake…our very way of life”. Of course, the same lunatics who(*satire*) bombed Russia “for their freedoms” are trying to bomb us for ours so we must treat as sacred these “black budgets”
Mish: Will interest on the debt consume all income taxes collected? If so when will that occur (sooner than most people think)
The Forgotten Men could have done a lot better in the 50 year old “War on Poverty” than LBJ and official Washington’s crusaders have. What is a a “Forgotten Man”? Read on…
Now you’re talking: Jeremy Lott thinks it would be a Good idea for Republicans to admit the Iraq War was a mistake. Of course this would mean that the old “Hawk” guard would switch places with Ron Paul as party gadfly but that’s a welcome change we and our children can embrace
Patrick J Buchanan: If the Iranians can assist us in the struggle for peace in the simmering cauldron of the Middle East then we should welcome their alliance like we welcomed Stalin’s Russia against Hitler’s Nazis
3 researchers prove what I have been telling listeners for years: Any “study:” can be rigged to produce the desired results, e.g. “The Acme NGO studied the habits of the blonde haired poor living in less than 800 sq ft and determined…. further study and monitoring by Acme is advised.” There is no wrong answer only a call to waste more resources on scientific make-work
I just finished watching Jeremy Scahill’s shocking film “The Dirty War” chronicling the rise of JSOC and the Obama “kill-list”. Scahill has written a follow-up to the film and as he lamented the “war on terror” is no longer a war so much as it is an executive policy decision on who lives and who dies

Thank goodness for Glen Beck (*satire*), leading the way in “talk radio”. Many of you are fond of pointing out that what I do on this site and on the Mike Church Show is ridiculed as “radical” and “destructive” sometimes we have even heard “treasonous”. Then 3-4 years later my POV becomes acceptable and the usual suspects swoop in to make millions and take all the credit. Now Beck purports to be the oracle of a new wave in talk-radio where “the titans of talk radio…have had it with the GOP” and that’s “a new wave”. I will let the long time listener and reader deconstruct this for what it is but I am a little upset that Beck doesn’t consider his colleagues on SiriusXM Patriot as “titans”
Congressman Walter Jones is one of the few bold, yet humble statesman left inside Mordor and he shows it e.g. “If a single American had died in Libya’s bombing I would have filed several articles of impeachment against the President.”
AG Eric Holder sends letter to all public schools demanding they stop enforcing policies that land criminals, committing crimes in schools, to law enforcement and instead handle these altercations in the principal”s office
The Young Man’s Guide to Building A House is defense of the traditional when it comes to marriage, patriarchy and the house and who runs it (Gal Queda will be outraged and millennial moral relativists will dismiss this as something worthy of not existing any longer)

The “St John Fools of Misrule” annual march was this past Saturday in downtown, [r]epublican, Covington. I have been a member since Dec 2010, the founding of the group. If you look close at the pics, you might see me in mask and Thomas Jefferson dinner attire
The Imaginative Conservative: Writer Timothy Gordon explains why he thinks “The 3:10 to Yuma” is the best morality tale ever put on film. I don’t think the last Act of “It’s A wonderful Life” can ever be topped in that category
What REALLY happened when Hayek released his great work “The Road to Serfdom”? This essay explains in great detail that the battle royale between the “progressive liberals” and the “classical liberals” began
NOMOCRACY IN POLITICS II: Kevin Gutzman reviews the new book “The Age of Strict Constructionism” by Peter Zavodnyik.
