Coronavirus ‘Lockdowns’ Are Ultimately Assaults On Freedom
by Mike Church
It was shortly after 1 p.m. on Monday, 16 March, 2020, a date which shall live in infamy in the minds of millions of Louisianians and citizens of several other states. John Bel Edwards, governor of my home state of Louisiana, issued an executive order that effectively unemployed, for at least 30 days, 213,000 of my fellow citizens.
These souls had done no wrong save choose to work in Louisiana’s top industry: making visitors and regular folks feel at home and loved in our famous restaurants, taverns and music houses. Edwards, along with a dozen other spineless governors, characterized their decision as “necessary…to save lives,” yet what consideration was given to the 233,000 and their freedom to responsibly pursue their “lives?” What of the impact this action would have on them and their families, including tens of thousands of children who were fed, clothed and nurtured by their restaurant & service industry-working parents? Thus, this “assault on the coronavirus” is just as easily, nay more easily, seen as an assault on reason, and on their liberties.
The political class has all but admitted this by doing what they do best: propose to throw money at the problem. The Trump Administration is contemplating an incomprehensibly gargantuan, $1.2 TRILLION “stimulus” act, ostensibly to undo the fiscal damage wrought by the panicked reaction to the coronavirus COVID-19 “pandemic.” Damage that was at least partially avoidable… (click to continue reading at Daily Caller!)
Mike Church Biography – “Too Catholic For Satellite Radio”

The Mike Church Interview: A Remarkable Conversion to Tradition Changes the Face of Political Talk Radio Featured
Chris wrote of me back then, words that were too kind but serve as a basis for this biography.
Indeed, over the past year or so Mike Church has emerged as the only traditionally Catholic conservative in talk radio today, anywhere in the world. And I mean traditional. Not only during my appearances on the show, but now thematically, Mike has turned the longest running political talk show on Sirius Radio into an unabashed presentation of the Social Kingship of Christ, traditional Catholic moral teaching, and even the traditional Latin liturgy as the solution to what is evidently otherwise a terminal civilizational crisis. I have been invited on the show numerous times to defend all of these things explicitly, to speak of the one true Church, and even to call upon conservative Protestants to enter the Church if they are serious about saving our nation and our civilization.
From there, on October 26, 2015, my 13 year run on Sirius Satellite Radio came to a close when my contract was not renewed. Chris would follow the above bio with an updated one titled, The Mike Church Show – Too Catholic For Satellite Radio.
