Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the latest in the ongoing saga of the Constitution’s death throes whether from Obama’s abuse or Boehner’s dereliction of duty. 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. “This duty [to the creator] is precedent, both in order of time and in degree of obligation, to the claims of Civil Society. Before any man can be considerd as a member of Civil Society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governour of the Universe: And if a member of Civil Society, do it with a saving of his allegiance to the Universal Sovereign. We maintain therefore that in matters of Religion, no man’s right is abridged by the institution of Civil Society and that Religion is wholly exempt from its cognizance.” – James Madison, Memorial & Remonstrance for religious liberty

While you’re eating that turkey on Thursday, you might want to check whitehouse.gov to make sure Dear Leader hasn’t passed a regulation making turkey illegal
George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving Proclamation in November, 1789, although he had no constitutional authority to do so. Still the text is typical Washington, full of stoic flights of nationalistic pride and some good advice on prayer in general. Read all about it, plus Mike’s commentary on it here
Chuck Hagel is OUT as SecDef as Obama cuts another “weak link” in what must be his growing chorus of Yes Men who actually should know NO better Men
Men, the only weapon we have to combat the radical, demonic forces that have sexualized our entire culture, turned women into men and made a mockery of men as “king of the castle” is to reform the Holy League that handed the Muslim hordes of Ali Pasha the most thorough and stunning defeat of Muslim history at the Battle of Lepanto. This Holy League will be comprised of Catholic men ready to go into battle against the cultural demons of our time, not worrying over what members of Gal Queda think our efforts
Thanksgiving for Senator Rand Paul, the only Senator who even acknowledges there could be such a concept as “Just War” and that the Constitution placed powers in certain places to PREVENT the kind of never-ending war making of convenience, nay, business benefits we currently suffer with the rest of the world under

Automation is making Men dumb but this WSJ writer says there IS a solution
If y0u’re not into the whole automation career, hanging out by an office water cooler playing air guitar and updating Facebook, the Feds want you to try your hand at farming (YES< there’s a program for THAT now too)
Professor Claes Ryn deconstructs the modern development of American Idealism that is responsible for killing the intent of the Framers of the Constitution. As I have told you hundreds of times, and Ryn reaches the same conclusion, The Constitution is DEAD. “The old American idea of limited, decentralized government was conceived by people who believed that placing restrictions on self and on government and encouraging strong communities was essential to human well-being.”
TN lawmakers sue Obama over his “executive order” to provide amnesty to millions of illegals, this could be the start of a trend and brings about that Constitutional crisis I’ve been warning about
The legal and moral problems Obama will confront carrying out his Executive Order and one of them is the ill-considered effect that many of the illegal aliens Obama purports to rescue actually came here to ESCAPE tinhorn dictators
The 5 myths that keep the United States firmly locked in never-ending conflicts in the Middle East
Attention my fellow Catholics: There can be no communion and thus no Sanctifying Grace for those that deny the sanctity of marriage as defined by Holy Church. “This sort of behavior would result in publicly renouncing one’s integrity and logically bring shame for a double-dealing that is not unlike perjury.”
When confronted with the latest exhaustive report on what went wrong in bin Ghazi, Senator Lindsay Graham refuses to acknowledge reality calling the report “full of crap”, a condition that certainly applies to certain members of the Senate
Slick Hilly has a problem: He is called Jim Webb and he has serious foreign policy credentials the lethal misanthrope Clinton can only dream of
Patrick J. Buchanan: Obama’s Constitutional heresy makes him the patron saint of illegal aliens. I respond 1. To grant Obama even the title of Saint may be a sin and 2. He is actually the patron of low wage labor
GOP “moderates” (the ones who run the party in Congress) roll over and play dead after Obama speech. Appropriations Chairman Rogers implies it is ILLEGAL for Congress to use the power of the purse, prompting a letter from Louie Gohmert et al. “ House Republicans sent a letter to Rogers and ranking member on the appropriations committee Nita Lowey last week to urge them to use the upcoming spending legislation ‘to prohibit the use of funds by the administration for the implementation of current or future executive actions that would create additional work permits and green cards outside of the scope prescribed by Congress.“
But wait, there IS a law on the books that says that the agency Obama is citing is “self funded” by fees it collects for that purpose. You almost had me until you read the entire act which cites the fees will be deposited into the “Treasury of The United States”. OK, Mike, so? Well, what is required for one solitary nickel to be dispensed from the Treasury of The United States? CONGRESS to appropriate it.

“Cinderella boy, out of nowhere, about to become Vatican Champion…” turns out actor Bill Murray is a Catholic, with pretty solid principles and even misses the Latin Mass (once you’ve ben to 3 of them, you will also wonder “how in the —– did we ever get from here to the Novus Ordo!?”
Slick Hilly now has some official competition for her coronation. Former Senator and Secretary of the Navy Jim Webb throws his hat in the ring and guess what? Webb is somewhat of a non-interventionist, the perfect counter to Slick Hilly’s wild, exorbitantly expensive, McCain-like and lethal interventionism.
Speaking of the White House derby, Senator Rand Paul is just anti-war enough to remain “cool” with some of the pseudo-journalist crowd that passes themselves off as journalists these days.
Then there is the Catholic variety of the pseudo-journalist making circular arguments about the government’s protection of the sanctity of life while never assigning the reason for the sanctity – because God said so. If I understand the author’s theme correctly “libertarians can’t be pro-life because they are anti-government and it is government that protects life and government needs to fix imperfect people’s lives AND FAMILIES so they are all filled with social justice-ey goodness and stuff.” Hmmm, let’s work on restoring the True definition & purpose of marriage and not worry about what social justice government craves, ok?
How has the Federal Reserve lasted all these decades in stark DEFIANCE of any Constitutional grant of its power? How have the People, so vaunted in the Constitution’s Preamble, have grown accustomed to this system of direct wealth transfer from the have nots to the have is even MORE shocking. Oh and Public Choice Theory is mentioned in this piece too
Catholic Diocese in the UK that survived the Vikings AND Luther, Henry VIII and their heresy is now losing to Modernity and radical autonomy (what the last 3 generations are possessed of in spades). How is it that the Latin Mass said during those other dark times was jettisoned at the crescendo a priori of ours? A Question that is partially answered, here
Rick Perry threatens to sue Obama over the Amnesty executive order that every media outlet on Earth claims is forthcoming

Dear Leader Chairman MaObama to announce, in prime-time, his legal rationale for the “Executive Order” clearing the way for 3.6 MILLION illegals to become instant wards of the States, spoiler of elections and the cause of Civil War II
FLASHBACK: Peter Hayworth and Kevin Gutzman’s primers on impeachment for Dear Leader, Chairman MaObama
FLASHBACK II: 51% of our fellow citizens told pollsters they WANTED Obama to use his magisterial, royal powers to grant “amnesty” meaning 51% of the population doesn’t want to live in what they recognize (and how pathetic is THAT) as the United States
I hate being right, Pt 2,748: When you introduce then defend and teach the concept that sex is something that is but a recreational activity that “everybody does” and can occasionally be used to “make babies” you wind up with sex-ed programs for children that now teach them HOW to perform those activities. Folks it doesn’t get anymore perverted and sad than this sex ed program being taught in Oregon and now making its way to YOUR neighborhood.

Obama’s UN hench-woman warns us of the “Dangers of Intervention Fatigue” meaning “‘Mericuhns better buck up” for another 100 years of non-stop war, death, debt and death not to mention burying Liberty, The God That Failed in 4 coffin spaces below the -6 foot level because of the corpses building stench. These people never WILL take no for an answer, can you name tyrannical monarchs that lived as long as ours?
The Patriot Act re-authorization has been defeated, for now, in the Senate. Under the guise of the USA Freedom Act, this turkey would have re-authorized the Patriot Act until 2017 AND knee-capped the NSA’s warrantless powers (as if that was needed-see 4th Amendment). Senator Rand Paul voted NO because of the Patriot Act component.
TIC Home run – “The ‘Conservative’ obsession with political power has resulted in the neglect of intellectual health”. John Vella writes wistfully of a “Worthy Conservatism” which is certainly alive and kicking but not welcomed or recognized by today’s “conservatives”. Instead the risque, stultified, vulgar and vain occupy the towers of conservatism. Those who bear life giving, humble, intellectual fruit are locked out of the roundtables of power for fear they may be recognized for their apparent Truths and bring the pain of reality to bear on “the movement”. The proper and Christ-like response to this is to seek the conservatism of The Soul, easily wounded, eyes fixated on eternity, with that prize and no other as our desideratum
DeceptiCONNED I – Patrick J Buchanan relates his take on the recent election that Republicans have interpreted the results as a mandate to ramp up the war machine and invade/conquer/establish no flu-zones/kill viruses et cetera over the remaining 8 sq. ft of the planet safe from the clutches of American Exceptionalism
Who can tell when their workday ends and when their leisure time begins or is there such a thing as lesiure time during a work week anymore (no, there isn’t) and yet we endure this so we can have $400k in debt to repay and big-screen TV’s!?

Well then, gentlemen, you have a version of Our Lady to live with and care for, don’t mess it up.
Leviathan’s clients, the corporatists, are just as loathed as Leviathan is, as Americans begin to suspect that they are indeed slowly roasting in that fabled pot from the boiled frog’s demise story
Hey wait a minute! You mean the Governors of the States IN the Union OF States can issue Executive Orders too? That means that MO & Governor Nixon have the same sovereign power that Mordor does….hmmmm, better squash this “order” before some neo-federalists see it and gain inspiration
FLASHBACK on AMNESTY POWER GRAB: Obama’s not the first President to abuse his Executive authority, Bubba Clinton became quite famous for it, prompting many to war that his actions would create an Obama. BUT, the “conservative” Heritage foundation found that there are “benevolent” abuses of this power and so long as they kinda carry out a sorta enumerated power (the President only has 3 and making laws isn’t one of them) then it’s OK. Here’s how out of scale, dysfunctional the power has become. “One scholar has identified 24 different types of presidential directives, although even his list is incomplete.”
In 2008 Congress ordered their research service to draft a report on the extent and limitations (if any) on the President’s Executive Order power.

Obama’s power grab is so brazen that even the Washington Post has been taken aback and expresses its surprise at the move in a lengthy piece that contains the ominous warning that should have been sounded back in 1789, 1861, 1915, 1933-45, 1971, 1977, 1991, 1993-today. Obama is descending into “murky, unchartered territory”
Flashback, 1787, Federal Convention delegate & [r]epublican Luther Martin spills his guts to the MD House of Delegates after they get their first glimpse of the Constitution. “But when [Mason & Gerry] viewed it charged with such powers as would destroy all state governments, their own as well as the rest, — when they saw a President so constituted as to differ from a monarch scarcely but in name, and having it in his power to become such in reality when he pleased, — they, being republicans and federalists, as far as an attachment to their own states would permit them, warmly and zealously opposed those parts of the system.”
The REAL issue with “GruberGate” is the crony capitalism, which amounts to theft, that it initiated. As previously stated on the show, we all KNOW the U.S. Government and its clients the state governments are prone to decieve. A good example of this tag-tem of lies is when a state “accepts” Medicaid “grant money” it knows it cannot raise by taxes, tthat the Feds haven’t raised it by taxes and that the people the “benefits” are applied to and their heirs will perpetually repay WITH interest. The same pols cannot charge a new care on your VISA card and send you the bill but that is precisely what they do with Medicaid/ObamaCare etcetera
The so-called “news media” in the U.S., is no more a news operation than Spike TV is, they are “infotainment” and their BIG Money BIG War profiteers like war, so the “networks” like war as you can see in this piece
All issues aside, why in Our Lord’s name would Pope Francis invite Patty Smith to perform at a Vatican “Christmas Concert”? Why not just send the Pope Sled to Ireland and pick up Sinead O’Connor on the way?
Does Fox News deliver the “conservative” and “culture warrior” take on news they have most “conservatives” hypnotized into believing they do? Considering their obsessive coverage of the latest Kardashian semi-nude romp through green rooms and onto TV screens, the answer is NO. But then again, as I have discovered in my coverage of the lack of modesty in our demon-drenched-culture, “conservatives” aren’t modest or conservative at all, they just don’t like their “conservative” counterparts, the ones called “liberals”. St Alphonsus Ligouri counseled among hundreds of other Saints that :”custody of the eyes” was a REQUIREMENT of a humble and modest life lived pursuing Sanctifying grace. How many Fox News oglers would heed Alphonsus (and Our Lord): “To practise modesty of the eyes is the duty of a religious, not only because it is necessary for her own improvement in virtue, but also because it is necessary for the edification of others.”
One writer, Gracie Olmstead, wonders whether it is the public’s appetite for such drivel as Kardashian “clickbait” or the “journalists” who feed the urge with their own obsession of the sinful and meaningless. Olmstead misses the point that should be in consideration: The publication of items LIKELY to cause mortally sinful thoughts and actions causes damage to the reader true but to the WRITER AS WELL (see “near occasion of Sin” below). When the press corps reached the decision that a wholesale rejection of the concept of sin was necessary to their “success” the Kardahsian stories are inevitable and she makes that point well.
What Are Occasions of Sin? – Is defined as, “Any person, place or thing which allures a man to sin.” (Definition from A Catholic Dictionary, 1951). Another definition: “Occasions of Sin are external circumstances–whether of things or persons–which either because of their special nature or because of the frailty common to humanity or peculiar to some individual, incite or entice one to sin.” (Catholic Encyclopedia, 1917)
SURRENDER: The States will bend to Obama’s climate change treaty will, says the Washington Examiner. if this is the case then what is the point in continuing “democracy” IN the states when our bleak, less affordable energy future is assured regardless of who we vote for?
Scientist Matt Taylor doesn’t know when he is delivering news about his space probe landing on a comet he is supposed to dress all “scientisty” and stuff
But Taylor is asking for this condemnation that his world of science trumping faith and that science trumping any faith based sense of humility and modesty. We can conclude from this laughable footnote in our civilizational slide into perdition that the science Taylor thinks is omnipotent is insignificant if it offends the Church of Modernity
Land of the Free? The Federal Leviathan uses undercover agents to enforce its “laws” against the citizens it purports to defend the liberties of the People. Just another piece of evidence in the expanding saga of Liberty the God That failed

Abortionists must be losing their war against Life because the claims they are now making are becoming more outlandish. “Women are being chained to their beds… until they have their unwanted babies: being one such claim. Pray…
The revolutionaries who ran the recent Synod have attempted to change doctrine by chaanging perception, this required deception in what was transmitted to the masses via media. We now know that the Synod actually firmed up the Church’s teaching (and thus re-affirmed Christ’s teaching) on marriage and divorcees as this headline shows: No communion for remarried divorcess who live as though they are married. PERIOD
If at First You Don’t Secede, Try, try Again – Catalan has mock referendum on Independence and votes 80.7% FOR Independence despite an official campaign from Spain to suppress the vote. Will there now be an OFFICIAL referendum like there was in Scotland?
Proving that intellectual acumen is not required to advance in politics, Harry Reid elevates Senator Elizabeth Warren to lead his minority party opposition. Somewhere, Lavergne and Shirley are lamenting taking that brewery gig. Pray tell exactly why “liberal groups” have a say so in the construct of the Senate’s minority party?
