Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the latest from a Federal Court case that actually uses the first amendment’s “establishment clause” properly…wheeee! 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. “The Article II phrase “executive power” was a distinct authority held alongside the “royal prerogative”—and a highly specific one at that, referring to the narrow but potent role of “executing” the commands and authorizations of both common and statutory law. If my preliminary research holds up, then the accepted theory gets it exactly backwards: Article II should be understood to have granted only those substantive powers that were expressly specified outside the Vesting Clause. As for the Vesting Clause, it granted only what it said: the President’s power to execute duly promulgated laws” – Peter Haworth, Nomocracy in Politics
Presidential War Powers and for that matter, Presidential King powers, are NOT condoned by the Founders Constitution as Pete Haworth admirably demonstrates at at Nomocracy
Today’s Guest Stephen Klugewicz’s essay on the M Night Shamalyan’s “Signs” is worth a read and the movie is certainly worth another viewing is you transfer the evil from being aliens to being demons
If it’s Monday it’s a safe bet that there is a new “Rand Paul has blown it” column written by soemone wishing to either a. promote their POV or b. use Paul as a touchstone to invalidate that POV, well, today is no exception as “Rand Paul’s Moment has Passed”
Has the USA become a nation in a “warmongering mood”? (as Leon Hadar says in “Rand Paul’s Moment has Passed”, Daniel Larison says no because the cost of war with ISIS hasn’t been felt yet
Ross Douthat is rattling the cages of those in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church with his defense of Conservative i.e. un-changing views on the history of teaching that goes back to the Gospels themselves. Apparently Douthat has also been isntructed to (as have I) “get back to bashing Obama.” “I’ll have a final, hopefully interesting but perhaps-less-controversial thought about the synod up later on today, and then the midterms loom, and my commentary here will probably take a turn for the secular, no doubt to some readers great relief.”
TIC: So what is Truth? Truth is that which is eternal and comes from or is influenced pursuant to the Transcendent Triune God. “The Truth shall set you free” is explained herein better than I have previously heard it
I hate being right, Pt 3,279 – Now there are POST BIRTH abortions being advocated for on College Campae across this decaying land of ours. Though the amount of people willing to publicly embrace this ghastly concept is small, they ARE out there and they ARE reading assignments in several universities. Pray to Our Lady to intervene on behalf of the children and to crush the head of this obvious diabolic serpent head

National Organization For Marriage endorses DEMOCRAT in election over SSM promoting, homosexual Republican. This is precisely what I mean the other day when I said I “vote Catholic first, [r]epublican second.” I would be agonizing over this one though and probably abstain because the Dem is abortion friendly.
Christian, Citizen-Soldiers, “gird your loins” because our “land of the free” is rapidly disintegrating into the home of the atheist enslaved. Southern Baptists think they’ll be martyred in public in less than 2 generations. I say it happens in less than 2 decades if not 2 years
TIC’s Frohnen: The American State of the Union: Feckless laws made to bring about the impossible lead to the ruin of nations (there’s that word again!) “When we reduce our goals to an ideological vision of equality like “all of us are equal in our right to government-funded health care” we end up harming real people’s lives and bankrupting our nation.”
Ross Douthat heads into the territory where the pagan hordes live and love to sew the bitter, poisoned fruit of scandal aimed at Catholics in explaining WHY Pope Frances must be resisted in his misguided efforts to alter foundational Church teaching on marriage

While I want to see the evil that is California’s demand that religious groups pay for their employees “reproductive health care including abortions, this still is NOT a first amendment case but is another outbreak of the pandemic that is Incorporation Fever
