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. So why am I opposed to a WALL being built to keep “Illegals out” and ostensibly, ‘Muricans in? For starters, we are lectured by DeceptiCON war-hawks that “fortress America” will “never keep us safe” from ISIS, SHIELD, HYDRA et al because we must “fight them where they are” and “deny safe haven” to them. Perhaps we should apply this same bellicose imbecility to Mexicans, if we deny them housing and food and their own money (can you say “embargo” or “sanction”) then we will, according to the Lindsay Graham, Fox News and most of the Talk Radio Mafia theory of statecraft, force them to “crave freedom” from their oppressive oligarchy and begin an “agave revolution”, for “freedom…. and liberty” right? Come to think of it, haqs anyone checked on the status of “women’s rights…and reproductive health” in Mexico? “We might fancy some children playing on the flat grassy top of some tall island in the sea. So long as there was a wall round the cliff’s edge they could fling themselves into every frantic game and make the place the noisiest of nurseries. But the walls were knocked down, leaving the naked peril of the precipice. They did not fall over; but when their friends returned to them they were all huddled in terror in the centre of the island; and their song had ceased.” – G.K.Chesterton, The Thing Is

WHEN BLACK LIVES #DON’T MATTER –Benjamin Watson has this one sussed: black lives only matter when the political class can co-opt the misery of those lives, purport to “fix” the misery while actually insuring its permanent existence and indeed, growth.
I HATE BEING RIGHT ALL THE TIME, WHITE MARTYRDOM ARRIVES IN DENVER – I have been warning that a religious persecution unlike any seen since the Supremacy Laws of 1559 made it illegal under penalty of death to practice the Catholic Fait, Mass or receive any of the 7 Sacraments. Denver now plans to consider making it illegal for any business that “opposes gay marriage” (“family organization” as they call it) to operate in its fair city. Of course no family can be formed without children and Denver has no problem with Planned Parenthood supporters, and Denver airport vendors, Starbucks and Ben and Jerrys. Now, what was that conversation of mine, you tuned out, that warned of this and pleaded for a defense of the UNIVERSALS of moral theology?
DeceptiCONNED: Republicans insist Obama must stop abusing Presidential “authority” or privilege” or whatever the latest abuse is but they cannot bring themselves to denounce and arrest Obama’s support for the Saudi Arabian war on Yemen, five months old now. Where are the “constitutionalists”?
The Issue Is Not The ChinaMan Walter!? – The Chinese are the new ISIS or the new …well, Chinese, and they are playing fair with their “currency manipulation” and “trade policies”. Wow, just imagine, the Communist Chinese took the financial advice of Lord Keynes, Barney Frank and FDR and the result is…. a market crash featuring Potemkin villages that never should have been built but showed economic “progress”. That the Chinese economy is crashing is not surprising, indeed it is predictable, that Americans think we will be spared the same fate once our diabolical pride driven course begins its correction, is tragic and sad, but don’t worry, we’ll elect an ersatz king who start a trade war with what remains of China… oh, and we’ll get to watch China yelled at by “conservatives” on TV too, yay! Maybe we should try: humility, fair trade with all (that means we don’t buy goods produced by sinful means) and non-intervention?
We Like War, And We Like Building War Toys -OshKosh has won the Big War needs Big Machines to be built lotto and will earn up to $30 BILLION in building replacement Humvees. Now, recall what happened to the old Humvees that were left in the desert for ISIS and HYDRA to hotwire. Hmmm, maybe this war business is just that, a business that requires obsolescence.
GALILEO WAS WRONG, BACK TO SCHOOL MUST HEAR RADIO! – Today’s Special Guest, Robert Sungenis, gives us a 90 minute long presentation on WHY Galileo Was Wrong, the ground-breaking film series that finally challenges the “settled science” of Heliocentrism that never was confirmed. “Galileo Was Wrong reveals in spectacular graphics and painstaking research that the true scientific evidence not only puts Earth in a central location in the universe, but shows that it enjoys the unique privilege of being the only motionless body around which everything else revolves.” Listen to the 70 minute recap of this presentation and soon to come video with the all new Founders Pass Media Player
WE ARE FAMILY – 50 years ago Daniel Patrick Moynihan penned a study of the then young “Great Society” of LBJ, his predictions have been born out by a factor of 2 while his conclusions on what to do about it remain on a shelf and collecting dust. As this essay recounts, Moynihan knew that it was the natural, God created institution of Family that was key. “Morals and manners—more than legislation—primarily shape the direction of great nations. Any hope for regeneration will likely arise from our families with active and involved fathers, churches that foster family cohesiveness, and various ministries and nonprofits that make strong, nuclear families a priority.”
More Folly of We The Sheople – “The Constitution demands that Congress declare war on ISIS and “We the People should enforce it” is is a noble and laudable demand from this columnist for the Atlantic. But these demands are actually legal affirmations if there IS a Constitution still to be obeyed thus showing the impracticability of written Constitutions that, regardless of their noble intentions, rely on their own created entities for discipline and acknowledge no higher authority.
Human Beings…In Yemen!? Nahhhhh – The U.S. backed, Saudi Arabian war against the civilian population of Yemen continues with over 1.5 million forced to flee their homes, hospitals completely shut down and the Red Cross withdrawing all aide workers.
TRUMPZILLA – Patrick J Buchanan wonders if Trump has sparked a revival of Nationalism…let us hope not.
“Girls Wear Short Shorts” But Men… To WORK!? I am delighted to see other concerned and writing about our horrific sartorial choices which I say, mirrors the rest of our actions that drive the Septic Tank we call a culture. By the by, the deadline is a satire and girls, my daughters included should NOT be cavorting about in short shorts.
The Miracle Amendment Will Make A Babling Savage Of You Too – WaPo’s Dana Milbank shows what happens when you write/speak/bloviate for a living on Federal Politics but cannot be bothered to pick up a history of the subject you wish to cover. In trying to bring Scott Walker down a peg over “birthright citizenship”, Milbank is in error. “First, asked by NBC’s Kasie Hunt whether he supported ending birthright citizenship — a constitutional principle in place since the Civil War era — Walker said: “I think that’s something we should, yeah, absolutely, going forward.” – Only problem is, this has NOT been a Constitutional principle and is NOT contained in the plain language of the 14th Amendment
Ius ad bellum non decepio est – FINNALY someone other than this page and its author takes Obama, Dumbocrats and DeceptiCONS to the woodshed for a Founders whooping over the illegal and unconstitutional “war” Obama is waging with Congress’s tacit approval against ISIS
Trumpzilla – Like the Romans at the end of their empire, ‘Muricans will now accept any alternative to the “Establishment” to allegedly restore our “greatness”, including Donald Trump. And like the Romans and the Germans this “greatness” is defined by the accomplishments proclaimed as admirable by the state: military, economic and “freedom”, it is the combination of these three that contribute to their hyperbolic expression and exaggeration.
DeceptiCONNED: General Brent Scowcroft makes a good case for why war-hawk, bomb Iran Republicans, are running the risk of jeopardizing the very “exceptionalism” they so love to obsess over. “Let us be clear: There is no credible alternative were Congress to prevent U.S. participation in the nuclear deal. If we walk away, we walk away alone. The world’s leading powers worked together effectively because of U.S. leadership. To turn our back on this accomplishment would be an abdication of the United States’ unique role and responsibility, incurring justified dismay among our allies and friends.”
ObamaCare was never about “health care” unless you are talking about the “health” of the huge insurance companies and their surging profits as a result of compulsory insurance. This is how Mordor works folks and why “reforms” like “WalkerCare” cannot fix the problem because the program is delivering the goods to the parties that matter.
The Planned Parenthood, Baby Butcher Shop can only exist if 1. ‘Murican law allows it and then 2. ‘Murican “businesses” purchase it’s “products” gained by barbarian means. The latest CMP video shows the CEO of the company that purchased completely intact fetuses, yucking it up over wine and lunch like she is talking about the sale screwdrivers.
DeceptiCONNED – War-hawks and ‘Murican Exceptionalists are now fond of complaining about the conspiratorial Muslim invasion to “the Continent”. What they won’t admit is that their (and Mrs. Clinton’s) original sin was the undeclared, illegal war-crime of assassinating Ghaddafi, overthrowing his regime and paving the way for the jihadi chaos that currently bedvils Libya and causes Libyans to launch 2 x 12 wooden planks as boats to brave the Mediterranean Sea and escape ISIS, HYDRA, SHIELD and whatever other villain our Spyfare/Warfare state can help create.
Darwin Was Wrong Pt I – Chris Ferrara reveals the story of a Jesuit monk who was actually making genetic discoveries in the physical world and not using the fallacious “hypothetical” that the sorcerer Charles Darwin used to explain “evolution”.
The Miracle Amendment’s Sorcerers Strike Back -Continuing the dialogue from yesterday’s show on so-called “birthright citizenship”, Ryan Cooper channels the greatest perverter of the miracle 14th amendment to ever live, “historian” Eric Foner and his hatred of all things Antebellum. Foner’s ahistoricism is exceded only by his denial of the reality of the Amendment’s debate and ratified intent, discussed here and here with an actual Constitution Scholar-Kevin Gutzman.
MBD: How the GOP Presidential Field has adopted a fantasy in Iraq and Syria “foreign policy.” What is really troubling about this is Dougherty’s reporting that a research paper, authored by civilians, snuggled up in air-conditioned think tank rooms at the American Enterprise Institute, concluded that an all out ground assault led by American forces, backed up by American air and naval power is “the only solution” to the U.S. inspired problem of ISIS.
The Trump Utility Company: Chesterton saw the rise of Utilitarianism in England in the early days of the 20th century: the philosophy (most call it ideology today) that Man is only as good as his utility to other men. Thus Donald Trump is good for other men and politics because his utility is creating wealth thus creating “jobs” but in creating jobs, you must also create displacement for those who accept the jobs and then the despair of those who lose the jobs. The Utility of Trump politically is that he ” is not part of the Establishment”, therefore, the Establishment being tried and hanged for heresy against populism, Trump must be a “good”. The problem with this is, there is nothing said or even intimated in either of Trump’s utilities of his First Principles, for it those principles that must guide him in the affairs of State that have no utility beyond the pursuit of the Common Good.
Spyin’ Eyes Love The Bush Family – Gee, what a coincidence, the family that partly-began political life as spooks (Bush was head of the CIA once) has demonstrated a careers-long skill to fund and expand and make wealthy the companies who benefit directly from the rise of the spyfare state. Jebediah Bush is an obedient son in this regard, but don’t worry, we NEED THIS! (for our own good against “evildoers”)
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
