Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the day to day activity of the Constitution AND Articles of Confederation and how they were framed in the summers of 1776 and then 1787. How come the children being killed by Israeli bombs in Gaza aren’t due the kind of sympathy and American exceptionalism the children killed in Syria were? 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. “We acknowledge that this conviction owes its origin chiefly to the terrifying destructive force of modern weapons. It arises from fear of the ghastly and catastrophic consequences of their use. Thus, in this age which boasts of its atomic power, it no longer makes sense to maintain that war is a fit instrument with which to repair the violation of justice. And yet, unhappily, we often find the law of fear reigning supreme among nations and causing them to spend enormous sums on armaments. Their object is not aggression, so they say—and there is no reason for disbelieving them—but to deter others from aggression.“ – ENCYCLICAL OF POPE JOHN XXIII
Ron Paul: Israel’s 155mm answer to terrorism is blindly accepted by American citizens because the media reporting the event and the government blessing it are deceitful and culpable. With Israel slated to receive $30 BILLION in “aid” over the next decade, If Obama & co wanted to stop the shelling of civilians in Gaza, they could, but they won’t
Hamas isn’t helping itself much by violating ceased fires BUT that still doesn’t grant Israel a pass to continue granting Hamas’s propaganda wish
Buchanan: Why do DeceptiCONS want you to believe that Putin is worse than Stalin and must be turned into a political leper?
Elsewhere, like in Iowa, the word of Our Lord and St Paul is being perverted to grant official, ecclesiastical cover to those who wish to foolishly import and care for tens of thousands of illegal aliens storming the southern border states and hungry for what foolish Americans will instruct their GOVERNMENT to provide
“Obama will take care of us!” And most of those children that Iowans desperately want to spend their public funds to care for have been coached on what to say when they get to the border, e.g. “Obama will take care of us”
Remember all those “Get Putin” demands from last week, because Putin MUST have been behind the downing of MH17, he’s Putin after all? Well the evidence is mounting that it was a Ukrainin military jet that did the shooting and there are eyewitnesses to back up the story
VIDEO: The great Robert Higgs (author of Crisis and Leviathan) explains HOW war leads to big government. EVERY DeceptiCON needs to watch this one
Ridiculous: Fighting out the future of male female relations will not be advanced on ESPN as Stephen A Smith and Michele Beadle live out a pro-sports, “War of the Roses”
Smith then tries the old-fashioned way out of his pickle: a prepared statement
DeceptiCONS morph to BarbariCONS: When the Editor in Chief of National Review Online can make statements that pardon the lethal shelling of known civilian targets, with known civilians in the target zone including children, the Right has reached the point where nothing they do is worthy of support. Please witness the barbaric, moral relativism of NRO Editor Rich Lowry, pardoning Israeli bombing of civilian targets in Gaza; this produces videotaped episodes of parents carrying mutilated children to graves, mehhh. You see, folks, as I have always said, foreign policy makes us who we are: and we are a barbaric, savage “nation” of soulless warriors who in the pursuit of our own promotion, can bear the sight of innocent life, killed by our acts, provided “national security” or “our friends and allies” were allegedly in danger.
BarbariCONS II: Conor Friedersdorf, The Dangerous Logic Used to Justify Killing Civilians. Friedersdorf continues the argument made above that the U.S. hiding behind the cloak of “protecting civilians” (children) via “national security” actions does not justify KILLING children in near proximity to those we claim are “terrorists”. When will American children become “collateral” for the war-hawks lust? (ummm, see Waco & Ruby Ridge etc, they already are)
Gallup asks the question: Are Israel’s actions in Gaza justified. You can see the results for yourself and marvel at the fact that either A. the American public does not know the extent of civilian casualties or B. The American public DOES know the extent of civilian casualties and doesn’t care because those kids” shouldn’t have been there to start with”.
It is all but official, Rand Paul for President, 2016 – The USA Today follows Paul around KY to discover that Paul is “thinking about it [the Presidency]” and is encouraged by “the polls” and “being in the top tier”. Recall from Monday’s Pile of Prep that not everyone is on the Stand with Rand wagon
NASA claims that it will take $12 BILLIONS to perfect its latest space vehicle launch rocket that will dwarf the mighty Saturn V, developed at a fraction of the cost and on-time. If we excise the “national” word from the acronym then we are left with an unconstitutional expense that has no bearing on our “security” unless, of course, you are a DecpetiCON and convinced that our holy experiment in liberty is actually meant to colonize the galaxy……… really?!
NYTimes piece on the Israeli bombings in Gaza that includes the story of a 4 story apartment building that was leveled, with 19 children inside, to allegedly get at 1 member of Hamas. EDITOR’S NOTE: As with the Syrian crisis 1 year ago, I have nothing to form opinions on but new reports and personal accounts. My opinion is that before the US throws all its might and weight behind what appears to be a human tragedy, or our “ally”, we should work for peace and not take a side. – MC
Urban Vandalism explained: When Progressives cheerlead things like abortion, ad hoc families and for those children who survive to be born, “alternative” families, they are doing the same things the fascist thugs in Italy, Russia & Germany did to justify their assault on the “anciene regime” (Christendom) and to animate their armies with a fake spirit of legitimacy. Replace the beautiful, traditional and sacred with the gaudy, new and cursed while claiming the latter is superior to the former because…? Our leader[s] said so.
Those unfamiliar with States actually acting like states as they ere when they entered the Union cannot understand how the TX National Guard will be anything but a vigilante group of armed mercenaries hell-bent on shooting trespassers BUT even DeceptiCONS like SC Gov. Nikki Hayley understands some part of the concept of sovereign states and the choice to care for “alien friends”. “You want me to educate them, right, you want me to pay their health care, right? We have our own children to take care of.”
I have been talking all week about ratified intent and on the true body of the People, their own [r]epublican governmenst, close to them, sovereign and beyond the reach of a central authority. Hadley Arkes, wrote an entire book on this in the 1980’s, seeing that the pursuit of “constitutional rights” would lead to moral and leagl ruin
Spyin’ Eyes: If you thought that the NDAA and the Patriot Act were the Dante’s Inferno of 4th Amendment burners you haven’t heard anything about the 1981, Executive Order 12333. The latest NSA whistle blower, John Napier The has resigned over the order and Dear Leader ChairMan MaObama’s abuse of it as he details here in the WaPo.

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.
What part of “Congress shall make no law…” doesn’t the FEC, FCC, FTC, FDA et cetera understand? Now the FEC wants to “regulate publishers” if they dare publish a book by a politician who stands to gain from it. Again, an understanding of the original intent of the First Amendment AND what conditions existed PRIOR to ratification will show that the agencies very existence is a stain on the First Amendment
AZ executes a brutal murderer and the culture of death’s agents protest the “cruelty” of the process. Oh cry us a river, the fact that capital punishment is carried out in a manner that irks the tender sensibilities of those who have no problem hearing of similar, “cruel” deaths, administered to babies in their mothers wombs. The daughter of one of the victims says what needs to be said on the matter. “What I saw today with him being executed, it is nothing compared to what happened on Aug. 7, 1989,” said Debbie Dietz’s sister, Jeanne Brown. “What’s excruciating is seeing your father lying there in a pool of blood, seeing your sister lying in a pool of blood.” (courtesy of ABC News)
Her husband, Richard Brown, had a similar thought.
“This man conducted a horrifying murder and you guys are going, ‘let’s worry about the drugs,'” said Richard Brown. “Why didn’t they give him a bullet? Why didn’t we give him Drano?”
And by the by, the Catholic Church does NOT oppose the State carrying out executions
Michael Brendan Dougherty says we should own up to the fact that we created the conditions under which ISIS is now cleansing Iraq of Christians, digging up ancient relic sites and killing anyone who doesn’t pay, convert of flee. I concur that we have a moral obligation to fix what we broke but until the U.S government recognizes its subsidiarity to the Christian King, Our Lord, the government will be but a secular ne’er do well in these affairs and are as likely to screw things up more than to fix them
Jeremy Scahill, he of “Dirty Wars” movie fame wants to know why the same media hacks who bludgeoned us for 60 days with images of Syrian children, allegedly gassed by Bashar Assad, with the headline, “who will stop the killing!?” Cannot find a nano second of air-time to report on what I talked about Monday: Israel bombing civilian populations in Gaza and killing the same children the media-ites wailed about in Syria. Hmmmmmm
If you want to know where all that printed debt is going in Mordor, look no further than the anxious, non-productive “gentry” who glom to white collar jobs spending and re-spending the american sheople’s money on “K” street. So, forgive me if I shed no tear for the “toughest K street labor market in years”— good grief, do these people EVER leave the “LobbyDome” (emphasis & coined name mine)
Gangster Chic causes MI Sheriff to ditch “cool” orange uniforms for inmates in favor of the old fashioned black and white striped variety which aren’t cool now but give MTV and Bravo a few months to work that out
The War on Organic Food: Michigan food agents arrest then force the farmer selling organic dairy at his co-op, to destroy the eggs and milk families came to claim. Obese kids are an epidemic, raised by parents who feed them never ending doses of starch and refined sugars eschewing whole milk, fresh eggs and other natural dairy.
After 3 days of grandstanding and doing everything possible to bring the United States into an armed standoff with Russia, our vaunted military and intelligence “analysts” reveal that they have NOTHING to reveal on Russia’s participation in the downing of MH17 but that doesn’t stop the non-evidence presenters presenting more non-evidence (anti-matter) that claims that “Russia created the conditions” for the shoot down!?
Mish: The likelihood that Russia downed MH17 is less than Ukraine downed MH17 but the MOST likely scenario is that the shooting was a horrible accident perpetrated by either Ukraine military, still spooked by their OWN RECENT REPORTS of Russian military craft in their air space or by “separatists” who misfired the weapon at what they thought was an easier, low flying target
Constitutional madness: Federal judge channels his love for Dominos Pizza into his ruling in favor of ObamaCare subsidies rolling on forever. The “good and plenty” clause must now give way to the “hand tossed dough” clause
The NY Times has a rundown of the two diametrically opposed Federal Court rulings on ObamaCare, one for the Federal giveaway the other again’ it. “The Fourth Circuit panel upheld the subsidies, saying the I.R.S. rule was “a permissible exercise of the agency’s discretion.” Well then, that makes the IRS a legislative body since it can promulgate law, not passed by Congress and not only raise revenues but distribute them too.
I told Ya So, Pt VIII -Tony Dungy may find himself the next Brendan Eich if his coerced “apology”, for not stating to the planet the reasons he “would not draft Michael Sam” had nothing to do with his being an outspoken homosexual, isn’t accepted by the perpetually offended promoters of SSM…
Like this bold accusation of Dungy’s “Homophobia-defined”. Dungy is excoriated for not bowing at the altar of lifestyle choices that counter his well-known Christian faith. We have reached an era when only the faith IN once illegal and immoral sexual acts can offer redemption to the wicked, you know,those who follow God’s laws which have not changed. MAN has changed but God has not. Witness “the world’s #1 soccer player, Matt Besser’s tirade against Dungy.
— Matt Besser (@MattBesser) July 22, 2014
Matt Walsh writes a candid response to all this, calling on Christians to pick the side of God and good and get off the neutral ground.
Meanwhile, the CDC discovers what some of us have been saying for years, that the homosexual population is less than 3% of the entire population. Demolishing the propaganda that significant percentages of the population are to be affected by “anti-gay” policies when the opposite is true, as Dungy’s example shows, the REST of the population is more likely to be adversely affected by “anti-gay” policies
DeceptiCONS gather for an homage to their state of allegiance, Israel and to listen to CUFI leader Pastor Hagee thunder on behalf of Israel. “I’ll bless those that bless you and I’ll curse those that curse you, that’s God’s foreign policy statement, and it has not changed.”
Is Governor Rick Perry the owner of a SiriusXM-OnDemand subscription? He must be listening to repeats of Our last 3 weeks worth of shows and non-stop exhortations to “not stand idly by” but to inform Obama he is “deploying national guard troops” to the “southern border of Texas”. This move will get the attention of the usual suspects in Bealzelbub’s Media who will rush out to discover SCV heirs in the TX Guard’s rinks… oh! the horror!
Get ready for the greatest, 2nd Amendment vs the Militia (now National Guard) debate ever, the moment a TX National Guardsman confronts an illegal or illegals in armed conflict. Read pg 30-35 the history of the militia’s conversion into the Guard
Is that a hard drive in your pocket or are you just happy to see me, Mrs. Lerner? There may be a backup of Lois Lerner’s mythical, destroyed, hard drive containing all the IRS’s dirty little secrets, after all
Iraq continues falling under the control of ISIS as Syria has now lost 35% of her oil fields to the Jihadist group – Iraq threatens to seek new sugar daddy if Obama doesn’t send in air-strikes – All this and the great “stabilizer” (the U.S.) has been active in the “region” for nearly 3 decades
The U.S., post 9-11, is an “imperialist basket-case”. The warfare and corporate welfare states roll hand in hand to grubbing unimaginable material wealth and showering it to the well-connected elite, this too shall pass.
What then happens to the expanded middle-class whose future livelihood has been put up as collateral for the current spending orgy?
WOW- The “Pile on Rand Paul” scrum gets a boost from Philip Giraldi as the Senator is taken down as an inexperienced ego maniac dreamer who is not nearly enough of a nationalist (Giraldi doesn’t explain why the U.S., awash in unexplored oil, needs Arab crude to flow to avoid a global economic catastrophe)
The “I told ya so” stories are following my prophecy’s timeline as MTV rolls out a Fall TV show that contains an “incest component” that one of the shows “stars” effusively informs “incest is hot”. You see, folks, there is no way to put the taboo demon back in the cage it has escaped from. It is now roaming among the secular servants of Him, whispering the suggestion to push envelopes beyond where anyone can imagine them pushed today until the perverted will soon become normal and the normal the perverted
I told ya so” – Part II, a Florida couple cannot contain their passions, has sex in front of 4 year old girl and her mother on a Florida Beach. Of course the perps were’t doing anything more than what would win them “immunity” on an MTV “reality show”
Rank and file Republicans are still less likely to join McCain’s army than they were 4 years ago
Don’t believe the early attempts to place ANY blame for the tragic loss of Flight MH17 and the 290 souls on board, it’s all self serving propaganda. Those rushing to blame Russia have obvious agendas and those are not “the national security” concerns they feign homage to
When I was a teenager, my Thursday and Friday nights were spent watching great TV shows like Six Million Dollar Man, Baretta and by far my favorite The Rockford Files. James Garner played Rockford as the anti-cop who just happened to be a P.I.. Rockford was never able to cross the high hurdle of success, living near broke in am Airstream Trailer outside Santa Monica beach. He always seems to be fighting the cops over what we would call “the police state” today. James Garner R.I.P.

Hmmmm, so playing video games or watching TV after work only creates “high levels of guilt and feelings of failure.” Hmmm, maybe relaxing with the fam or reading from a book or, if you really want to find some peace, praying, might create those desired feelings of “relaxed” and “at peace”.
