Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the day to day activity of the Constitution AND Articles of Confederation and how they were framed in the summers of 1776 and then 1787. The global war-hawk machine’s use of the MH 17 tragedy to promote a standoff with Putin continues with McCain saying sanctions coupled with arming Ukraine “are just the beginning”. Really!? 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. “The authority of training the militia, and appointing the officers, is reserved to the states. Congress ought to have the power to establish a uniform discipline throughout the states, and to provide for the execution of the laws, suppress insurrections, and repel invasions: these are the only cases wherein they can interfere with the militia; and the obvious necessity of their having power over them in these cases must convince any reflecting mind.“ – James Madison, explaining the militia clause to VA’s Ratifying Convention
Is Governor Rick Perry the owner of a SiriusXM-OnDemand subscription? He must be listening to repeats of Our last 3 weeks worth of shows and non-stop exhortations to “not stand idly by” but to inform Obama he is “deploying national guard troops” to the “southern border of Texas”. This move will get the attention of the usual suspects in Bealzelbub’s Media who will rush out to discover SCV heirs in the TX Guard’s rinks… oh! the horror!
Get ready for the greatest, 2nd Amendment vs the Militia (now National Guard) debate ever, the moment a TX National Guardsman confronts an illegal or illegals in armed conflict. Read pg 30-35 the history of the militia’s conversion into the Guard
Is that a hard drive in your pocket or are you just happy to see me, Mrs. Lerner? There may be a backup of Lois Lerner’s mythical, destroyed, hard drive containing all the IRS’s dirty little secrets, after all
Iraq continues falling under the control of ISIS as Syria has now lost 35% of her oil fields to the Jihadist group – Iraq threatens to seek new sugar daddy if Obama doesn’t send in air-strikes – All this and the great “stabilizer” (the U.S.) has been active in the “region” for nearly 3 decades
The U.S., post 9-11, is an “imperialist basket-case”. The warfare and corporate welfare states roll hand in hand to grubbing unimaginable material wealth and showering it to the well-connected elite, this too shall pass. What then happens to the expanded middle-class whose future livelihood has been put up as collateral for the current spending orgy?
WOW- The “Pile on Rand Paul” scrum gets a boost from Philip Giraldi as the Senator is taken down as an inexperienced ego maniac dreamer who is not nearly enough of a nationalist (Giraldi doesn’t explain why the U.S., awash in unexplored oil, needs Arab crude to flow to avoid a global economic catastrophe)
The “I told ya so” stories are following my prophecy’s timeline as MTV rolls out a Fall TV show that contains an “incest component” that one of the shows “stars” effusively informs “incest is hot”. You see, folks, there is no way to put the taboo demon back in the cage it has escaped from. It is now roaming among the secular servants of Him, whispering the suggestion to push envelopes beyond where anyone can imagine them pushed today until the perverted will soon become normal and the normal the perverted
“I told ya so” – Part II, a Florida couple cannot contain their passions, has sex in front of 4 year old girl and her mother on a Florida Beach. Of course the perps were’t doing anything more than what would win them “immunity” on an MTV “reality show”
Buchanan: “The Moment of the [American] War-Hawk is at hand,” do they REALLY want another nose to nose confrontation with the Russian Bear? To what end? For what purpose? The prospect of “unthinkable” consequences is on the line.
Maybe Ukraine had something to do with downing the plane? The Russkies claim evidence to support that

Bodies from the MH-17 plane crash are being hordes by “separatists” in refrigerated train cars without international, investigator, access allowed
John “Rambo”Kerry dusts off his Syrian act, the well rehearsed “we know who is responsible for shooting down Flight MH17 and the global community cannot allow this to go unpunished”
Don’t believe the early attempts to place ANY blame for the tragic loss of Flight MH17 and the 290 souls on board, it’s all self serving propaganda. Those rushing to blame Russia have obvious agendas and those are not “the national security” concerns they feign homage to
When I was a teenager, my Thursday and Friday nights were spent watching great TV shows like Six Million Dollar Man, Baretta and by far my favorite The Rockford Files. James Garner played Rockford as the anti-cop who just happened to be a P.I.. Rockford was never able to cross the high hurdle of success, living near broke in am Airstream Trailer outside Santa Monica beach. He always seems to be fighting the cops over what we would call “the police state” today. James Garner R.I.P.

Prof Randy Barnett explores whether the Militia, in the second Amendment sense, was ever intended to exist with or without “arms” as a universal right. A question easily answered, I think by simply asserting that prior to Amendments, there was no mention of a “right to bear arms” nor a prohibition, thus the Framer’s “if a power is not enumerated TO Congress (in Art I, Sec 8) then it is RESERVED”
James Madison’s “Report of 1799-To The Virginia Assembly” This document lays out the proper division of powers when it comes to “immigration” and as I have told you, leaves no doubt that Congress was never granted power over alien “friends”
High Crimes and misdemeanors by H. Lowell Brown is a great history of the history of impeachment and what the “high crimes and misdemeanors” phrase meant to the Framers of the Constitution
Thomas Hamilton’s “Men and Manners In America” is a good read to get a glimpse of what 19th century writers were saying about the Yankee spirit that was consuming the political affairs of northern Americans, a spirit that was seized on in Lincoln’s war and ultimately became our “exceptionalism”
NEW – If you wonder why I refuse to deviate from the opposition to our bellicose foreign policy and all that it conjures up, read this most important essay about the effects of “War, Power and Supremacy” Here’s an excerpt. “Except for the inhabitants of certain former states of the Confederacy, particu- larly Virginia, Tennessee, and Georgia, Americans have no experience at the other end of the process of radicalization. They have not suffered the fate of having been demonized, followed by savage in- vasion where no quarter is given, commu- nities laid waste—and that succeeded by a period of occupation replete with the usual antics of unscrupulous exploita- tion and further brutalizing acts. Lacking such a historical memory, finding it easy to dismiss the Southern experience, and, furthermore, being inclined by nature and education to discount history in general, Americans lack both the internalized ex- perience of the vanquished and the incli- nation to suspect a political establish- ment that promotes such barbarism as a new principle of global supremacy.”
NEW – Don’ t take anyone else’s word for what happened in the Federal Convention of 1787, read it for yourself in this online version of Farrand’s Records of the Federal Convention of 1787-Volume I

Why is it a bad idea to have a standing army just laying around? CATO, the 18th century Whig, read by most of the Founders, explains as an Englishmen, meaning this school of thought comes from the conservative tradition the Founders inherited and defended

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. No, it isn’t a paradox, it is the study of how inertia in public affairs is almost always missing when “change” is lusted for
