Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, Welcome to mikechurch.com 2015 Edition. The mini-spat Mike Huckabee has with Beyoncé is further evidence of the cultural sickness this civilization is infected with. 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. “Yet the idea that “the king can do no wrong” makes no sense in a governmental system that has lacked a king from its inception. Its application as law has left ordinary citizens with limited recourse against governments (or against people claiming governmental status for the purpose of immunity) that have committed actual wrongs. When the government, even at the state level, consists of vast bureaucracies of the kind that exist today, the doctrine of sovereign immunity becomes absurd. If it is true that in nine states and in the District of Columbia the government employs more than 20% of all workers, imagine how many people are eligible to claim immunity from liability for their tortious conduct and bad acts committed on the job.” – Allen Mendenhall, Nomocracy in Politics
The definition of the term “conservative” continues to be assaulted by Republicans with “far right” members of the U.S. House forming the “Freedom Caucus.” This makes little sense from the conservative point of view as the act of conserving things, tradition, institutions & co. requires real work, scholarship, composition, oratory and actual construction and maintenance, what is “free” about that?
The resident “War War War, Kill Kill Kill, Bomb Bomb Bomb” DeceptiCON of the WaPo, Jennifer Rubin, has a simple message for Senator Rand Paul “Get out of the GOP and Challenge Hillary, you are more like her and Obama”. I take this to mean that actual conservatives, relying on the non-intervention counsel of the Founders and the [r]epublicanism of “Anti-Federalists” should leave the party, too.
Huckabisms: If I understand the argument Michelle Williams of The View is making for Beyoncé: because she works hard and many hours and has “sacrificed”, then her obscene, pornographic lyrics and immodest dress MUST be forgiven. This sounds an awful lot like George Orwell’s point made against the obscenity of artist Salvador Dali in the 1940’s.

G.K. Chesterton weighed in on the artist’s sine tectum and rightly concluded that the artist, yes musicians are artists, MUST have limits or they cannot make art. “Anarchism adjures us to be bold creative artists, and care for no laws or limits. But it is impossible to be an artist and not care for laws and limits. Art is limitation; the essence of every picture is the frame. If you draw a giraffe, you must draw him with a long neck. If, in your bold creative way, you hold yourself free to draw a giraffe with a short neck, you will really find that you are not free to draw a giraffe. The moment you step into the world of facts, you step into a world of limits. You can free things from alien or accidental laws, but not from the laws of their own nature. You may, if you like, free a tiger from his bars; but do not free him from his stripes.
Do not free a camel of the burden of his hump: you may be freeing him from being a camel. Do not go about as a demagogue, encouraging triangles to break out of the prison of their three sides. If a triangle breaks out of its three sides, its life comes to a lamentable end. Somebody wrote a work called “The Loves of the Triangles”; I never read it, but I am sure that if triangles ever were loved, they were loved for being triangular.”

The heroic work of “Awed” a mother/blogger who has penned a piece encouraging Christians to NOT say the Pledge of allegiance. She is in good company here as I have encouraged ALL Americans to refrain from loyalty oaths to secular institutions including the Pledge of Allegiance
The Founde[r]’s [r]epublican [r]ed Pill is being consumed with greater zeal as is evidenced by the growth of small business (and breweries) while the megalo-marts have peaked. Have we reached “peak big-box”? Have people figured out that the local merchant, small in size and selection provides a value beyond the big-box, made in China price point?
“Social media” was created to facilitate communication because we apparently weren’t talking enough and not nearly enough famous people were spending long nights chained to keyboards to apologize to those offended by use of terms like “colored people” which is apparently the new “n-word”, just ask Benedict Cumberbatch
The pornography masquerading as popular music has no greater performer than Beyonce, I fully explained this last year over the course of a few days in May. Now Mike Huckabee is being criticized for doing far less by the hosts of The View who proclaim her as THE role model for our daughters. Yo

Callie-forn-yuh Supreme Court orders all state employees to resign their Boy Scouts of America memberships because the Scouts “discriminate”. I respond that designating the organization as BOY scouts is by definition discriminatory to prospective girl scouts.

Some are crowing over the GOP controlled House voting to “permanently defund” most abortions apparently unaware that the famous Hyde Amendment )named for IL Rep Henry Hyde) already did this back in the 1980’s
Patrick J Buchanan to French and American “liberals” er… “freedom of speech” defenders: at least the ISIS jihadis KNOW what it is they are fighting for, and willing to die for, do you? “All want our troops, our alien culture and our infidel faith out of their lands. All seek the overthrow of regimes that collaborate with us. And all wish to establish regimes that comport with the commands of the Prophet. This is what they are recruiting for, killing for, dying for. We abhor their terror tactics and deplore their aims, but they know what they are fighting for. What are we fighting for?”

“Truth is the first casualty of war” and now it is apparently the recurring casualty of the New England Patriots as InflateGate, the deflation of footballs used in the Patriots/Colts AFC Champ game, produces calls for disqualification.

My recurring subject of Americans being social engineered into hurtling metal boxes, cars, so we can use the fleet of cars we must maintain to maintain our incomes and multiple flat-panel TVs, is gaining traction as researchers discover that “peak car” was reached back in 1996 and the decline in driving continues

German Bishops move one step closer to committing absolutes heresy and damning untold millions of souls to Hell by counseling that 1. divorce is permissible and 2. Communion and a State of Grace are easily attained AFTER divorce and a remarriage which is CLEARLY, un-mistakenly forbidden, St Thomas Aquinas explains this like no-one else (save Augustine) has
The GayStapo claims two more skins, those of actor Gary Sinise and Fox News anchor Brett Baier who pulled out of the Tom Donahue’s Legatus Summit because of career threats from LGBT radicals. Please don’t mis-understand, I do not wish for the opportunity to be placed in similar circumstances so as to become the next homosexual advocate’s professional martyr but the line must be drawn somewhere BY someone. Austin Ruse at Crisis writes, scandalizing Sinise “Frankly, none of us want to fight this battle. But the battle was brought to us and we accepted it. But when called upon to do something difficult, when called upon to stand with others who are also wounded and reviled, when called to stand with his faith and his church, Lt. Dan waved the white flag. Gary Sinise acted cowardly. We have to remember, so did Peter. So do we all. But Sinise’s cowardice sure hurts today. It hurts real bad.”
BEING PRO-LIFE ISN’T JUST ABOUT ABORTION – The culture of death has made acceptable the ghastly practice of organ harvesting by changing the definition of death and more specifically “brain death”. If that article doesn’t make you squirm, then this one will and will begin your journey to understanding just how possessed of Death our society is. (N.B. These articles are from the New England Journal of Medicine)
What will the French do to rid themselves of the Muslim hordes that have invaded their country and are now poised to have their way with the soul-less, God-less French? If they try deportation and assimilation by government fiat, the short run will include bloody repeats of Charlie Hebdo. If they do nothing the Dhimmitude and executions headed their way make those repeat Charlie Hebdos seem like a bargain

The National Right to Life March is this Thursday and Congress intends to greet it with the lame excuse of HR 36 which alleges to protect the unborn at 20 weeks but only if they meet certain qualifications. THIS is pro-life!?
Really!? The oldest idea under the political sun, the tax increase, promises to make the already perfunctory SOTU, a “blast from the past”, gee, what do you do for the encore? Call for “increased funding of education”?
The U.S. is within a generation of entirely losing the Christian Faith that I argue we have already lost mainly because of our living lives as non-Christians live them, this report from a conference on the matter suggests that is true and we may alter course by “going weird”
If you are looking for an endearing and worthwhile endeavor, pick up a copy of the wonderful little prayer book “Purgatorian Manual” which is available as a digest sized book here (I have the pocket edition and read from it everyday)
If you are like me you wonder just what kind of outrageous terms the loan-sharks are giving at those “Pay Day Loan” joints that seem more ubiquitous now than actual places of employment. The Fact that Usury has become an industry and no one seems to even know how sinful it is I cannot say surprises me. Now up comes some Protestant churches to attempt to provide their parishioners with collateral to make low interest loans, a risky endeavor that doesn’t deal with the deadly, debt causing sin of gluttony
When you think you’ve heard it ALL then someone decides that they are going to poison Speaker Boehner because he “was mean to” him and besides, the perp believes he is Jesus Christ.

Will the GOP follow through on rolling abortion “rights” back on a national level?

AUDIO: Fascinating lecture series challenging Joseph Pearce’s (a guest of the Mike Church Show) view that The Lord of The Rings IS Catholic literatureI think it is safe to say that Patrick J Buchanan has had it with the GOP war machine and their growing litany of outright lies used to justify the military expansion and muscle flexing across the globe, this time over Russai’s ALLEGED INVASION of George and Ukraine.
The Boehner Strikes Back III: Boehner punishes those who dared oppose his coronation as “Speaker of The House (of Representin’). Of course we have to get this news from British newspapers. One of the caualties was the reliable libertarian Rep. Justin Amash of MI
TIC: Why are there “presidential libraries” and why should one be built nay subsidized for President Herbert Hoover!? Brad Birzer calls these buildings and the men they are dedicated to: Treason to a republic.
The problem of communicating the Incorporation Doctrine and Nomocractic Constitutions is rooted in the U.s.’s collective imbecility, brought on by our obsession with national solutions to all problems which require national acts of The State. To today’s yewts, there is the U.S.A., “America”, today and there is Somalia.
Imaginative Conservative: Absolute comfort corrupts absolutely. The civilization that thinks it has everything has nothing, as Christ told us “He who is exalted will be humbled; he that is humble shall be exalted”, and it all starts in THE HOME.
