Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest tyranny bloviated out by NV Harry Reid at NV rancher Cliven Bundy. I’ll also cover the facts surrounding taxes in early America and what a joke they were compared to the thievery suffered today. 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. “Mr. Chairman, whether the Constitution be good or bad, the present clause clearly discovers that it is a national government, and no longer a Confederation. I mean that clause which gives the first hint of the general government laying direct taxes. It is ascertained, by history, that there never was a government over a very extensive country without destroying the liberties of the people: history also, supported by the opinions of the best writers, shows us that monarchy may suit a large territory, and despotic governments ever so extensive a country, but that popular governments can only exist in small territories. Is there a single example, on the face of the earth, to support a contrary opinion? Where is there one exception to this general rule? Was there ever an instance of a general national government extending over so extensive a country, abounding in such a variety of climates, c., where the people retained their liberty?“ – George Mason, Virginia Ratifying Convention, begging for the Constitution to be rejected
Geniuses at the CBO claim 6 million new souls now have “health coverage” thanks to the ObamaCare Act which is a bit like saying “6 million people living near clean, fresh water lakes now have drinking water thanks to the installation of “Clean Drinking Water” machines”
Harry Reid pulls a Terminator, “We’ll be back” telling reporters about Cliven Bundy. “Hey BLM, you can’t talk and threaten my constituents like that… only I CAN talk and threaten my constituents.”[paraphrased by Y/T]
VIDEO BLM GO AWAY – Nevada citizens win standoff with BLM thugs trying to enforce the cattle confiscation against Cliven Bundy. BLM tasked these people for demonstrating against their invasion
Just what the Millennial generation need: übercroft ways of making money for not actuality doing anything other than “paying it forward.”
Cliven Bundy to Glen Beck: “We did our governor’s job and disarmed the BLM, chased them back to Utah.”
Speaking of working moms staying home more, they won’t have to risk banging their heads up against the glass ceiling Obama and members of Gal Queda keep thundering on about now that “health care” has been “fixed” what else is there for libs to do?
Citizen! Obey your Federal Overlords and surrender the Federal land and does, citizen! NV rancher is in armed standoff with Federales who claim they own his land and cows that his family has ranched since 1888. Can you say “Waco”?
The rancher, Clive Bundy, says his family owned the lands before federal tyrants claimed they did. Footnote: The battle is over protecting some stupid desert tortoise rumored to cross the property in question from time sot time
Emancipation Hell: Shortly after discovering that the people of the North could be motivated by the Puritan cause of abolition [of slavery] as opposed to the hapless cause of preserving a Union few were motivated to preserve, Lincoln and his generals concocted the idea of “total war” and thus he evil that was the “subjugation” of the South began in earnest. you won’t see that on a Ken Burns movie but you WILL find it daily at the Abbeville Institute
WARNING NOT SAFE FOR WORK: This Takimag post makes all the right points with one of the Gessenites foul language and vulgarity on the “T” in LGBT oh and Q
DeceptiCONNED: John Taylor of Caroline’s admonition to not let a little bit of tyranny in o deal with the rest of the tyranny is proven correct again as the House GOP begins its efforts to REFORM ObamaCare, bailing on the effort to repeal EXACTLY as I predicted would happen
DeceptiCONNED II: “Boehner says we repealed ObamaCare” GOP Rep. from TN says even though he hates it, he has made ObamaCare better for small business. Right on schedule….
The Constitution of the State of New mexico says the following about Religious Liberty. “Section 11 – Freedom of Religion – Every man shall be free to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience, and no person shall ever be molested or denied any civil or political right or privilege on account of his religious opinion or mode of religious worship. No person shall be required to attend any place of worship or support any religious sect or denomination; nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious denomination or mode of worship.
Why then is the lesbian couple able to force/compel, under New mexico law, a couple to photograph their “commitment ceremony” when they have an obvious right to not do so for religious reasons? The Incorporationistsas need to be sued for maplparctice
But Mike, the gays just want the same rights as the rest of us, c’mon, lighten up. Now the GIRL SCOUTS is demanding that legislative bodies recognize “reproductive rights” which I take to mean we must send our daughter to Girl Scout camps so they can learn how to fornicate and the what to do with the “accident” (a baby) when that act end in pregnancy. If you still believe these problems we are confronting are political and can be soled by electing more Republicans, please join a Wiccan coven, Pagan cult or other demonic organization so we can identify you with the enemy.
Now comes the story of organic farmer Chauncy Childs who committed the unthinkable sin of making her anti-SSM views public while trying to open a new business in Portland OR. Witness the “love” dished Childs’ way from those who have the gall to claim all they seek is diversity and inclusiveness for THEIR views, if you disagree you are not accorded those privileges.
The original story posted in the Oregonian newspaper details the horrors (yes, that’s satire) committed by the Childs’ in expressing any view that does not comport with one like, say Masha Gessen’s. Read just how loving and inclusive the homosexual activists interviewed for the post are
Get Rand. DeceptiCONS aim to spend millions to purge non-interventionists from the GOP including Justin Amash, Walter Jones and of course Senator Rand Paul

Got Firefox? Still? Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigns amid a firestorm of controversy from SSM advocates because he donated $1,000 to California’s Prop 8 initiative, that defined marriage traditionally
AmConMag’s Rod Dreher isn’t buying Mozilla’s dubious statement that it “supports equality for all”, that is unless you have ever uttered a word or donated a nickel to oppose SSM> Newsflash:: this would mean ANY Catholic working at Mozilla, who has regularly attended Mass and tithed as they should, has supported SSM, shouldn’t the “gay” McCarthyites demand religious affiliation acknowledgement as a condition of employment?
Meanwhile a “Christian” charity group declines to hire SSM employees, then under pressure decides to hire SSM employees, then under pressure from “christians” reverses itself prompting a board member to resign in protest. So let me see if I have this right: Our Lord commanded us to care for the sick, feed the hungry and clothe the naked. He said nothing about bringing about the “marriage” of Steve and Stan and you choose Steve and Stan over the kids formerly in Sally Struthers TV appeals? Wow, great “charity” work.
Not satisfied with just cleansing the workplace, activists now move to the airwaves and attempt to rid them of the hilarious Stephen Colbert because he has an on-air alter ego that doesn’t support…. can you guess?
Finally, noted homosexual blogger Andrew Sullivan is also revolted by the Mozilla/Eich chain of events and the larger wave of the new PC paradigm which tolerates no dissent
SECEDE – Tired, worn out, warped bromides from the Libs don’t even have the sting of a threat nay longer, thus when über-Lib Steve Israel says that the “budget act for fiscal sissies” introduced by Paul Ryan, gives advantage Dumb-o-crat because it declares “war on the middle-class”, WHAT is being said? That the middle-class exists to provide votes for LARGER wealth transfers than nationalist lefties like Ryan are willing to fork over?
The state of Maryland practices a little [r]epublicanism, like it or not, with minimum wage hikes and marijuana taxes
VIDEO: I received predictable hate mail after daring to criticize Cosmos’s Neill deGrasse Tyson’s claim that Creationism is bunk and claims to “prove” that “fact”. Here’s Dr. Thomas Woods demolishing the hate-mailers and others who claim that the Catholic Church has worked tirelessly to squash the sciences. Watch and learn…

Under what authority does 1. The NHTSA exist and why don’t the “conservatives” in Congress defund them and 2. Use that same authority to compel auto manufacturers to instal “backup cameras” in all new SUVs and trucks?
Imaginative Conservative: Has the Smartphone actually brought anyone together or has the “smartphone” actually cause technoman to withdraw because he has the cloak of technology to hide him?
Nomocracy in Politics: There are HUGE differences between neo-conservatism (which isn’t conservative at all) and Paleo or Trad-con conservatism (I prefer [r]epublican)
Remember when I encouraged you to read who the Founders READ? Algernon Sidney was one of the four most read of the day. He was the pseudonym taken by the great [r]epublican jurist from Virginia Spencer Roane whose battles with nationalists over e.g. McCulloch vs Maryland should be required reading. Roane has a role in my film “The Spirit of ’76”
My Latest Essay at The Daily Caller explains how Jefferson blew it in 1798 by not heeding John Taylor’s advice for Amendments or VA Secession, let’s not make that mistake again. Where are today’s Patrick & John Taylor?
To my Orthodox friends, the problem plaguing the youth in the Church is the same problem plaguing the Roman Catholic Church but no one will admit it. WE, the adults AND the adults running the Church jettisoned the formality and sanctity of exercising Faith as the first order. In other words, our example is not good across the board, what results do we expect?
Episode III of the “Rethinking The American Union” by Marshall DeRosa Evaluating The Union From The Base of The Iceberg. “If you consider yourself to be sympathetic to Anti-Federalists principles and question the “legitimacy and practical sovereignty of the federal government and its proxy organizations,”[i] welcome to the base of the iceberg. If you don’t sense a chill, keep reading…”
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.
TIC: In his “Program For Conservatives” Russell Kirk expounded on how the “conservative” was becoming a caricature of a preservationist, expanding the size and importance of his world instead of focusing on those small, beautiful permanent things that draw men to the good life and form good civilizations

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.

RETHINKING HAMILTON: TIC’s Brad Birzer wants us to rethink the pre-conception that holds Alexander Hamilton as devil incarnate. I think Birzer is note correct than he is not as Hamilton was a diverse character and, as I show in Times That Try Men’s Souls, he was an American patriot of the Continental Army. (He also stars in my docudrama “Fame of Our Fathers”)

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
