Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest [r]epublican news, reading selections and Mike’s take on the the hysterical reactions to “Putin’s aggression” which pale in comparison to our own. 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. “What have our ancestors been striving for, under the name of civil liberty, for the last five hundred years? They have been striving to bring it about that each man and woman might live out his or her life according to his or her own notions of happiness and up to the measure of his or her own virtue and wisdom. How have they sought to accomplish this? They have sought to accomplish it by setting aside all arbitrary personal or class elements and introducing the reign of law and the supremacy of constitutional institutions like the jury, the habeas corpus, the independent judiciary, the separation of church and state, and the ballot. Note right here one point which will be important and valuable when I come more especially to the case of the Forgotten Man: whenever you talk of liberty, you must have two men in mind. The sphere of rights of one of these men trenches upon that of the other, and whenever you establish liberty for the one, you repress the other.” – William Graham Sumner – The Forgotten Man
America-Team NATO-World Police – Obama orders 6 additional F-16 fighter jest to Poland to go and “police” the skies over the Crimea, just in case Vlad the Impaler decides he needs to intervene on behalf of people attached in some form or another to Russia for over 800 years. (I wonder where Putin would get such a dastardly idea!?)
War-Hawks in the House draft resolution that demands that Vlad the Impaler stop acting like Bush the Compassionate or Obama The Dear Leader. If we change the proper nouns referring to Russia & Crimea (from the AP story), the resolve sounds like what I would expect the rest of the planet to demand of Us. “It calls on The United States to remove “all of its military forces” from the Arabian peninsula, other than those operating in accordance with a treaty on operations of the 6th Fleet. The resolution also calls on President Vladimir Putin to not attend the upcoming G8 summit of industrialized nations in Sochi, and to “consider expelling” The United States from the group “given its international aggression.”
Ubiquitous Media Failure: What happens when one “media critic” tries his hand at being a critic on a subject of American invulnerability – The Ukraine – He winds up illustrating the folly of his own paid existence
Putin is not on the wrong side of history anymore than JQA or James Monroe were. We forget that the Monroe Doctrine declared the hemisphere we occupy as one free of monarchical aggression
ObamaCare for me but not for thee!? I thought that the ObamaCare act was so sacred and holy, as written, that Harry Reid threatened to turn off the Sun if Republicans tried to alter it in the slightest? Now here comes Dear Leader himself, changing the implementation plan for policy compliance again by lengthening status-quo to 2 years!
Now let’s browse over to another page on the same site to discover that actors play roles that contradict their own real-life POV. So when Matthew McConaughey praises the grace of God for his success it MUST follow that he has been cast and acted in a role not flattering to our Heavenly Father
Justin Raimondo puts his finger on the real reason that Putiphobia (my term) has possessed the minds of nearly all the usual suspects who just happen to be the same interventionists who assured us that Saddam was Hitler, Assad was Hitler, and now Putin is Hitler.
Dig a little deeper into the Ukrainian “chaos” to discover that the real culprits here are the same culprits in Libya, Syria and Egypt, namely U.S. as the record shows we are actively undermining the legitimate, though corrupt, government of Ukraine.
Now let’s learn a little bit about Ukrainian geography and language distribution which shows a strikingly easy to identify, divided country nearly down the middle.

William Graham Sumner was feted by Clyde Wilson and Brion McClanahan as a “Forgotten Conservative” in their book by the same title. Reading his “Forgotten Man” essay from 1883 will explain why.

Here’s an interesting work that I recently discovered “The Crowd” by Guztave Le Bron a fascinating study of how crowds control nations and what nations become control crowds.

Another call for an Article V amendment Convention that lauds Mark Levin as the modern creator of the idea and its chief theoretical proponent, neglecting Dr. Kevin Gutzman, Prof. Randy Barnett, Bruce Fein and Y/T’s work over the last 4 years
TIC: Finally someone else says what I have concluded over the last 5 years of reading and reflecting and that is the welfare & corporatist states arose because the capitalist system alone cannot fulfill all the needs of a society which is why the reading of the Christian complimentary works of Austrian economist Wilhelm Roepke are vital. Blaming just Franklin DelanObama and the New Deal is woefully inadequate to illustrate a way out of our current pickle “…the 1950s became more insular (perhaps the word to use is “nuclear”), with an emphasis not on sustaining generational connections and continuities over time but on self-indulgence and individual fulfillment through consumption, with ample doses of sedatives distributed to calm rattled nerves and temper unrealized expectations. The American family, more particularly its middle-class variant, thereby became the apotheosis of secular modernism.”

Rethinking The American Union Symposium – Allen Mendenhall’s “Secession and Messianic Statism Part II” is the most well thought out, provocative yet motivational from the reclaim liberty and the liberty of the Spirit, I have read since Gildersleeve’s Creed of The Old South. Folks, STOP what you are doing and read this, then read it to your kids, then read it to your grandmother, then print it and slip it in your neighbor’s mailbox. An excerpt “The American Union no longer represents America. America is dead, and the American Union killed it. In its place is a consolidated bureaucracy that carries out standardized programs to enforce uniform mediocrity.”
Rethinking the American Union, Symposium, rolls on with Allen Mendenhall’s “Secession and messianic statism Part I” at Nomocracy in politics.

The Fame of Our Fathers: What makes a famous Founder famous and why are so many, once famous, now not known at all? The answer lies partly in the fickleness of any given age and what it needs to exalt itself, the rest comes from the Founders own pursuit of Fame as I chronicled in Fame of Our Fathers. Here’s an audio sample explaining “conditores imperiorum” and you can buy the 3 CD set there
