Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, Welcome to mikechurch
.com’s Pile of Prep, all the materials used to prepare the Mike Church show, 2015 Edition.The State . The latest outrage being foisted on us by the FCC, “net neutrality” is not neutral and guess what? it isn’t Constitutional either. 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.“If you say that sex has intrinsic moral significance, then you set it within a larger moral framework and set limits to the legitimate use of sex. In doing so, you declare certain sexual acts illegitimate, something which is now considered hate speech. This constant coining of new categories of sexual identity serves both to demonstrate this and to facilitate its policing.” – Carl Trueman, First Things blog
DEAD CONSTITUTION GETS COLDER: The FCC does the dirty work, AT&T and the Wall Street monopolizers can’t do: squashing internet/broadband competition via the misnomer “Net Neutrality”. Come to think of it, the FCC can’t do this either but like most things from Mordor, no one cares about the law and the Constitution, only outcomes
MORE DEAD CONSTITUTION: CEI sued the FCC in 2012 and their claim of unConstitutionality is still true today
Recall that the FCC power to micromanage speech content as in radio and TV was ruled unConstitutional during the “fairness Doctrine” days and then upheld when Congressional Libs tried to bring it back
Finally, the DC Court of appeals dealt what should have been the prevailing view on this subject from the “stare decisis” point of view in 1989, yet here we are again
Happy Birthday to a Real Hero: In an age where Hannah Davis and “Kanye” are revered as “heroes” to far too many, I would like to share the birthday of one Fr. Roussel Thomas Byles who sacrificed a place on the Titanic’s lifeboats to instead remain with those stranded, hear their confessions, grant them last rites and pray the Rosary. B. 26 Feb, 1870; D. 15 April, 1912. R.I.P. Fr. Byles.
Guns and Ammo: The Guns are your biceps the Ammo is the Holy Rosary. For those who snickered or got outraged or tuned out when on today’s show “[I] went all Catholic, again”, here is one or thousands of stories on the use of The Rosary against Muslim hordes and in this case, the fleet of the Sultan, repelled at LePanto in the last “great naval battle featuring ships with oarsmen”.
The history of the “Fairness Doctrine” shows that even IF the FCC is successful in ignoring the courts and defying Congress there will always be room for the hope of a future appeal succeeding
DeceptiCONNED, Trouble in PaulLand: With all the outreach and ego swallowing Senator Rand Paul has done to try and win DeceptiCONS over to his foreign policy views, the effort has returned predictably little if any fruit but it has given his Israel-First (the real bosses of our foreign policy) opponents enough evidence of his heresy (in their jaundiced eyes) to plan to spend MILLIONS to derail Paul should he decide to run for President
DeceptiCONNED II: Finally someone other than this writer deigns to inform the “conservatives” in the GOP that Defense spending IS government spending too. Maybe next week, someone will inform them that THEY control what cases the Federal judiciary can hear and if they legislate against hearing homosexual “marriage” and abortions, then only state courts could intervene in those cases (but that’s never going to happen)
Compare Obama’s veto message to Congress of the Keystone Pipeline Bill-2 paragraphs, no mention of a Constitutional reason WHY he was vetoing the bill- to President Reagan’s veto of the first “Whistle Blower” act, citing its Constitutional problems and the abuse of powers.

Now the wasteful, ineffective, unconstitutional behemoth that Republicans created, the DHS, threatens to eat its creator if the creator tries to shut it down Friday demonstrating the near certain impossibility anything Congress ever creates that is attached to a significant amount of “jobs” cane never be eliminated or even hobbled
The latest Sports Illustrated “Swimsuit Edition” cover (WARNING: NSF@W or KIDS or Catholics) is just the latest sign of the coming public orgies our total lack of modesty mandates, no scratch that, our wholesale REFUSAL to even acknowledge there is such a thing as modesty, will produce if it hasn’t already, public, Nero style orgies. And who will care or object, and on what grounds? You don’t like the animal print on the 1/4″ of bikini fabric covering the model’s …. ahem…. The “conservatives” at The Federalist wish for people like me to “calm down” because publicly showing all the Lord blessed you with at birth is a repudiation of the Puritans and necessary for a free society. Pope Benedict XV summed up our current, moral pickle x 1000 back in 1925 “One cannot sufficiently deplore the blindness of so many women of every age and station. Made foolish by a desire to please, they do not see to what degree the indecency of their clothing shocks every honest man and offends God. Most of them would formerly have blushed for such apparel as for a grave fault against Christian modesty.” Sorry, your Holiness, Hannah Davis HAS NO clothing.
Glenn Greenwald and Lura Poitras’ Citizen Four, their documentary on the NSA and Edward Snowden’s revelations of its corruption, won the Oscar for Best Documentary, might signal that some in elite media circles see the growing danger of the spyfare state and are trying to push back, but is this sufficient to the task? (I say no but it is a welcome start)
Fr. Broom encourages ALL Christians to “fast with their tongues…this Lent” meaning “fasting from offending others”. My crack research on this matter reveals Fr. Broom’s silliness (thanks, callers, emailers and other Giuliani worshippers!) must be bereft of knowledge that President Obama is still President, obviously “hates America” and Lent or no Lent, needs constant calumny otherwise he might do something really spiteful like pardoning 5 million illegals with trespass amnesty… right?
St Patrick’s Day is approaching and you know what that means right? No, not green beer and good times but radical homosexuals appearing in various stages of undress and untraceable modesty in sexual decorum in the NYC St Patrick’s Day Parade which is to be led by Catholic Archbishop Timothy Dolan despite clear evidence now that the homosexuals plan to perform radical, political stunts to advocate their causes: increased punishments for those who do not endorse their sexual perversions and of course demands for “universal gay marriage” laws. Add to this the fact that a children’s pro-life group was told to go pound sand when they asked to march in the parade and the grand total says Dolan MUST resign as Grand Marshall. But will he?
Why Audit The Fed? Well, because there is a glaring need to expose the obvious corruption going on at the “central bank” and to begin the process of… well that’s the rub for me. Where is the groundswell of clamor for our inevitable return to a sound money system of gold and silver standards for coined money? Do you believe there is ANYONE in Congress, save for Rand Paul and Justin Amash that even know what a gold standard is? Maybe Janet Yellin is right but not for the right reasons
The DeceptiCON War-Hawks at Heritage foundation find that the planet’s largest and best funded military is but “marginal” right now and call for a doubling down of efforts to fund and make the killing machine a more swift and feared version
Is OMSNBC bailing on Lib content because the money is in non-partisanship broadcasting? If so then you have all the evidence needed that today’s “creeds” are not creeds at all but suggestions to be followed until the next profit making opportunity comes along. This illustrates precisely WHY “conservatives” should never bail on tradition, always refer to the history and custom of their institution and most of all, NEVER choose profits over principles
Now there are “flexuals”, “questioning” and “genderf***ed” sexual “preference” designations that are being recognized and house on college campæ across the amber waves of fuel. It is amazing to witness the perverted expansion of “sexual choice” after it was unshackled from the magisterium of the Church just as “Faith” and “salvation” have now expanded to <37,000+ choices for “Christians”
The Gaystapo strikes again, this time claiming the business, life savings and reputation of a Baptist woman who will not be compelled to provide her flowers to homosexual “couples” and their “weddings”
It is now politically incorrect AND career threatening to identify and describe any sexual act in a pejorative manner. This is now considered “hate speech”. This is what 500 years of Enlightenment thinking that began with “I think therefore I am” and is now best summed as “I f— there fore I am”.
The little “lending libraries” I talked about seeing in Scotland where residents of a community place books in a small enclosure or old phone booth and then borrow them by leaving a book of their own are now under assault by local governments everywhere who don’t want their monopoly on public libraries threatened
Is the current state of Great Britain in as pathetic a moral state as Islam is? Joseph Pearce says yes and that “Great Britain is Dead”
The “battle” over funding or not funding the DHS is just another example of the dysfunction of the Federal monstrosity we call government
The Department of Homeland INsecurity would be better left unfunded and disbanded including the obnoxious TSA, it’s first-born child
Kansas’s Legislature passed a ban on DISMEMBERMENT of soon to be born babies over the objections of legislators who actually defended the ghastly, barbaric procedure
Hizonner the laughable Rudy Giuliani proclaims Ukraine to be an “important ally” of the United States, right alongside that old reliable ally of Jordan. Of course this has to accompany the hackneyed call for Obama to become an American Exceptionalist
Russell Kirk helps explain reason # 7,348 of why I am not a Libertarian as many people mistakenly assume and why you might want to re-consider claiming you are one as well
DeceptiiCONNED: “Conservative” columnist Ross Douthat advises the GOP to nominate a candidate in 2016 who can propose POLICY options to ObamaCare, so, just as I have lamented in the past, the “conservative” position of government run healthcare is that Republicans can manage the monster that is the State bettern than nasty liberals can
Secession is coming to CA as the state of Jefferson picks up county #7, Lake County, of the 9 needed to form the geographic borders of the State of Jefferson
PRAY: Soooo, people bailed on Christ to avoid being affiliated with the Republican Party? The libs that fantasize over this being true cannot possibly stand in front of a life-sized, sculpture of Our Lord, crucified, IN a Catholic Cathedral and really believe that is true and if it IS then not lament it being true
Jeb Bush shows that he does not understand what it means to be a member of a community by calling for more foreigners to invade current communities and in exchange for a job… “You come, you work hard, you embrace these values, and you’re as American as anyone who came on the Mayflower”. First off, those on the Mayflower weren’t Americans they were British
If you are wondering whether there is a morally valid, Pro-Life reason to oppose vaccinations in some cases there most certainly is. As then Holy Father Benedict XVI instructed a woman back in 2005 on the evil that surrounds the MMR vaccine and what to do about it.
Followup to yesterday’s post of James Madison’s veto of a “public works” bill in 1817. President Monroe vetoed nearly identical legislation 6 years later and explained his reasons similarly
