Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the latest from a world gone mad. Our Dear Leader has now started his very own war with his very own Stratego army and used the alleged threat of the “Khorasan” group to justify the first day of popcorn-bombing. Cheer at the peril of your children, DeceptiCONS, this will not end well. 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. “Government is necessary: but let it be remarked by the way, that its necessity does not grow exclusively or chiefly out of the fact that the human race by sin has fallen from its primitive integrity, or original righteousness. It is the minister of wrath to wrong-doers, indeed, but its nature is beneficent, and its action defines and protects the right of property, creates and maintains a medium in which religion can exert her supernatural energy, promotes learning, fosters science and art, advances civilization, and contributes as a powerful means to the fulfilment by man of the Divine purpose in his existence. Next after religion, it is man’s greatest good; and even religion without it can do only a small portion of her work. They wrong it who call it a necessary evil; it is a great good, and, instead of being distrusted, hated, or resisted, except in its abuses, it should be loved, respected, obeyed, and if need be, defended at the cost of all earthly goods, and even of life itself.” – Orestes Brownson, The American Republic
Gee, that was quick, as fast as we were informed that the greatest, most evil, most advanced terrorist threat in the history of terrorist threats the “Khorasan”, the group has gone as silent as reruns from Emerill Lagasse’s NBC sitcom. I am not the only one who didn’t buy the convenient emergence of “Khorasan” on the eve of the U.S. led coup beginning in Syria. Now Glenn Greenwald has pieced together the propaganda campaign and the willing media hacks that were Obama’s “useful idiots”
The “roast Rand before he gains too much support” contest is now in full swing as the Atlantic follows the Politico which followed the NY Times which followed the WaPo to the [r]epublican/libertarian killing fields. The kleptocrat establishment thinks so much of Senator Paul’s chances that they’ve enlisted their “c list” writers in the effort. It does not occur to these people that only those living inside their self-constructed, hermetically sealed “elit-O-world” give 2 shakes of a rat’s tail about their “analysis”, knowing they were never intended to win, only to crash the party and get the “squares/neocons” to pick up some of the bar tab
Speaking of the inevitable launch of all things 2016, Ted Cruz continues to promote a “shoot first..ask que…scratch that, don’t ask any questions later” foreign policy which seems to be a race to see which “conservative” can be the most outrageous in using the American military as their personal democracy army
Let’s visit the works of Orestes Brownson for a moment again as we view this latest illegal, immoral atrocity called the “ISIS War” and recall that Brownson had jumped the Protestant ship of fixing the Constitution & the American soul by external (amendments/elections) means and opted for the internal method of consecrating the government to Christ and building out from there. “The thesis we propose to maintain is, therefore, that without the Roman Catholic religion it is impossible to preserve a democratic government, and secure its free, orderly, and wholesome action. There is nothing great, generous, good, or heroic of which a truly loyal people are not capable, and nothing mean, base, cruel, brutal, criminal, detestable, not to be expected of a really disloyal people. Such a people no generous sentiment can move, no love can bind. It mocks at duty, scorns virtue, tramples on all rights, and holds no person, no thing, human or divine, sacred or inviolable.“
Governor Moonbeam laws down the phallus, signing the “yes means yes” law that purports to define when a hot night of perfunctory college sex is legal and when it isn’t but of course the State remains a secular, neutral party in all this, not some modern quasi-God that now issues codes of moral conduct based on the writings of Gloria Allred
Want to see a total waste of creative energy and the destructive, radical autonomy of the “social media” paradigm? Read this string of Tweets from “Modern Family” editor Ryan Case, who was on an airplane, seated behind a miserable soul who drank too much and got far too little charity from the men seated on either side of her, or Case for that matter. I suppose it’s funny for the elites to joke about murdering strange women on planes but imagine if the “Nadia” character turned out to be one of Modern Family’s homosexuals with Case as an arch-insenstive, Christian “bigot?”
Remember all those new immigrants that snuck into the U.S. from Honduras and were going to be sent back if they were alone but we all knew they weren’t and we all knew the Syria/ISIS “war” would remove the issue from the radar screens of the hoi polloi? Well, they stayed, we get to pay for their schooling, meals and health care and the issue is now all but forgotten
Say Hello To The Military Immigration Complex – The Army doesn’t have the money to pay citizen soldiers so they will turn toward new immigrants to fill those “boots on the ground” that Obama claims are not on the ground in Syria
James W. Antle II gives us 7 reasons why the non declaration of war from Congress is a really bad idea
What do you do when the “moderate” terrorists John McCain and company are cozying up to start complaining about Obama strikes in Syria? You get told to bomb Bashar al Assad into deposition, that’s what happens, what could possibly go wrong!?
The James Bond-like villain in the personage of Bill and Melinda Gates has just proven their diabolical heart by lobbying the Catholic School leaders to join Nancy Pelosi and Gates’ campaign to force-feed Common Core to Catholics by propagandazing them ion Catholic media. I’ve never been a believer in the New World Order global conspiracy but the creepy Gates twins and their Common Core brain-washing give me pause to consider it. Wanna know WHY, the Gates’ must attack the Catholic Schools? Well, last year 130 Catholic scholars issued a letter that informed their teachers and administrators of what was at stake and WHY they shouldn’t consider the diabolical (meaning “of Satan”) Gates’ plot.
“Promoters of Common Core say that it is designed to make America’s children “college and career ready.” We instead judge Common Core to be a recipe for standardized workforce preparation. Common Core shortchanges the central goals of all sound education and surely those of Catholic education: to grow in the virtues necessary to know, love, and serve the Lord, to mature into a responsible, flourishing adult, and to contribute as a citizen to the process of responsible democratic self-government.” Catholic Scholars Letter to faculty
There is enough “conservative media” these days that you can avoid the indoctrination camps known as the “liberal media” in places like politico.com where we find the most glowing, radiant praise of Eric Holder’s magnanimous and flawless tenure as America’s second greatest civil rights crusader. Trust me folks, do NOT click this link unless you have some receptacle nearby to throw up in.
You can read Congress’s lame excuse for an “authorization” of the Syrian debacle here, search for the terms “declare war” or “in a state of war” or just plain old “war” and the only reference you’ll find is in the proper noun form of “The War Powers act”
MBD: Michael Brendan Dougherty writes what needs to be written: The U.S. A. is just too big to be a “democracy” in any meaningful sense of the word
While you’re at it, see if the name “Khorasan” appears in the “affiliated groups” bibliography because they are now our SECOND mission in Syria. Obama and the war-hawks cheering him are going to re-create South Vietnam all over again. For all we know there actually IS a group called HYDRA next on the expansion list. From CBS News:
” ‘We’ve been watching this group closely for sometime,’ Mayville said. ‘We believe the Khorasan group was nearing the execution phase of an attack either in Europe or the homeland. We know that the Khorasan group has attempted to recruit Westerners to serve as operatives or to infiltrate back into their homelands.’ ” You BELIEVE they were going to strike EUROPE and American lives, treasure and reputation had to be wagered. Let’s weigh the “believe” part of this heresy against step 1 of Augustine’s Jus ad bellum:
1. Just cause — The war must confront an unquestioned danger. “The damage inflicted by the aggressor or the nation or community of nations must be lasting, grave and certain,” asserts the Catechism. [emphasis mine- MC]
As a matter of fact, Obama henchman Susan Rice actually asked Congress to repeal the Iraq AUMF because it was no longer valid or of use
Obama does not control the “Masters of the Universe” by hosting meetings in the White House and determining the fate of millions, who are NOT Americans
Meanwhile U.S. socialists vote to (in the Senate) to authorize “vetted groups” to partake of our MIC and enjoy the spoils of a $600 BILLION never-ending war department
The US Military as “the biggest NGO on the planet” being used to fight ebola etc is a gross perversion of military power that was never intended and should not be intended for “humanitarian purposes”. General Boykin agrees and tells WND why
The Imaginative Conservative – The social and religious revival of the 1950’s in the United States PROVES that what Chris Ferrara & I talked about on Constitution Day can be accomplished if Christian men and women apply our energies and prayer to the effort. But, as the 1950’s also show, that effort must be sustained or the results will be the lecherous culture we are immersed in today, on steroids.
Incorporationistas strike again, in a Texas middle school that has a plaque on it’s wall, honoring the “Year of Our Lord” the school was built in. The town has thus far refused to cover the sign. Pray.
The word “conservative” has become an adjective that has more commercial meaning then it does any significant political or moral one. “The word conservatism has been so much relativized that its meaning and import are now shorn of noetic and dialectical validity. Even those who are steadfastly loyal to conservative principles and ideas are uneasy and defensive when applying and defending them. It is becoming painfully obvious that conservatism as a word has lost its compelling power, its definition confined, exponentially, to prefixes, ellipses, brackets, and adjectival equivocations…”
Real Gentleman do not deny their Lord’s Cross and bear it with reverence to Him and disregard for mankind, ironically, the latter is who benefits from the act
DeceptiCONNED: Meanwhile, the DeceptiCON website Weekly Standard’s editor, tweets out that if you disagree with Ted Cruz you are a member of ISIS
Did Dear Leader MaObama plan his “strategy” based on 10k ISIS of 30k ISIS. What if there is 60k when our 485 “non-booted-non-combat” troops arrive? Will we double the order and send 1k? So the mission is but 1 day old and it has already doubled in size
Incorporationistas Strike Again: Arkansas State Football is told to rip-off the Crucifix decals with recently deceased team members numbers on them from their helmets for allegedly violating “separation of Church & State”. All it took was for 1 atheist or Muslim attorney with a conservative talk-radio bred view of the Bill of Rights applying to the known universe since the days of Noah and BAM – Reminders to pray for the souls of the dead are now ILLEGAL when attached to ANYTHING that is performed on or partially paid for by “state money”. Liberty, The God That Failed, now has an attitude.
Article V debate held in VA concludes not to conclude anything. Recall the Article V Amendment Convention symposium held at the XM studios in April 2010, you can READ the entire proceedings transcript here
Remember the Giffords? The couple from upstate New York, framed by radical lesbians for “discrimination” because they would not commit mortal isn and host a “gay wedding” IN their own home? Well they have decided to get out of the hosting wedding ceremony business as a result but I wonder how long it will be before some more radicals decide to compel them to reopen their ceremony business on the grounds that accommodating “receptions” for “gays” requires accommodating the event that PRECEDES the reception. Don’t laugh, these people, do not rest until people like the Giffords have been shamed into renouncing their faith or financial ruin (in their chosen field)
Black Mass update: OK City’s “Mass” is still opposed by many with petitions now bearing 70,000 signatures against the “service” however, just WHERE is the Church Militant on this? if this blasphemy is to take place there should be an army of Catholics outside the “service” praying to Our Lady & St Michael to bring the event to a close
Not satisfied with defining “marriages” and “civil unions”, “transgendered” and other “emerging sexualities” the State of CA now wades into defining exactly what is and what is not “consensual sex” which is funny considering backers of this insanity were the same hippie pagans demanding that “government stay out of my bedroom” all those years ago.

Did you know that in 1865, 7,000 Confederation citizens sailed to Brazil and set up a community there and are STILL there today? Hmmmm, maybe there IS still a place to seek refuge from Obama’s Leviathan
