Mandeville, LA – Today’s Pile of Prep: most of the stories and research used to put together the Mike Church Show on the Veritas Radio Network’s CRUSADE Channel. 2016 is here and WELCOME to the All-New, Mike Church Show on the CRUSADE Channel, listen LIVE for Free (don’t cost nuthin’).
Sapientia et Veritas -“If this opinion be sound, then indeed is our constitution a complete felo de se. For intending to establish three departments, co-ordinate and independent, that they might check and balance one another, it has given, according to this opinion, to one of them alone, the right to prescribe rules for the government of the others, and to that one too, which is unelected by, and independent of the nation. For experience has already shown that the impeachment it has provided is not even a scarecrow; that such opinions as the one you combat, sent cautiously out, as you observe also, by detachment, not belonging to the case often, but sought for out of it, as if to rally the public opinion beforehand to their views, and to indicate the line they are to walk in, have been so quietly passed over as never to have excited animadversion, even in a speech of any one of the body entrusted with impeachment. The constitution, on this hypothesis, is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist, and shape into any form they please.
It should be remembered, as an axiom of eternal truth in politics, that whatever power in any government is independent, is absolute also; in theory only, at first, while the spirit of the people is up, but in practice, as fast as that relaxes. Independence can be trusted nowhere but with the people in mass. They are inherently independent of all but moral law.” – Thomas Jefferson to Spencer Roane, 06 September, 1819
Here Come Da Judge, Here Come Da Judge – Has anyone considered that Donald Trump’s argument against the judge presiding over the Trump University lawsuit may actually be correct? Are we really of the opinion that the Federal Judiciary is bereft of corruption that we have all born witness to? Note that those rushing to the Judge’s defense and hurling charges of “racism” are the same Big Brother “yes men” and women who ALWAYS defend their matriarch, the Leviathan state. Patrick J Buchanan comments: “Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific Just this. First, Trump has a perfect right to be angry about the judge’s rulings and to question his motives. Second, there are grounds for believing Trump is right. On May 27, Curiel, at the request of the Washington Post, made public plaintiff accusations against Trump University—that the whole thing was a scam. The Post, which Bob Woodward tells us has 20 reporters digging for dirt in Trump’s past, had a field day. And who is Curiel? An appointee of President Obama, he has for years been associated with the La Raza Lawyers Association of San Diego, which supports pro-illegal immigrant organizations.”
Jefferson & Trump Share The Same View of Federal Judges – Witness Thomas Jefferson’s well-known animus toward the Federal Judiciary which already, in 18xx, had gotten untethered from the “chains of the Constitution” to which it was supposed to be moored.
Will You Go Trans or Carmelite, Pt VII – The ACLU has now advanced its lawsuit against Dignity Health of CA, asking a federal court to compel the Catholic hospital charity to medically treat his Gender Dysphoria. “Plaintiff Josef Robinson is an employee of Dignity Health who works at Dignity Health’s Chandler Regional Medical Center. As a result of the categorical exclusion in the Dignity Health Plan, Mr. Robinson has been forced to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket in order to obtain medically necessary care for gender dysphoria, and he has had to forego some medically necessary care entirely.”
The Trumpzilla Show Episode I – Trumpzilla reverses, well sorta, his previous correct statement that Hillary cannot be trusted with foreign policy because of Libya. Now Trumpzilla recants saying that it was sorta OK to “surgically” take out Ghadaffi but “not what we have now”. That Trump thinks assassinating the leaders of foreign nations is enough to cause any Christian to run for the passport office as part of a Brexit strategy but what is truly frightening is the wholesale inability of the hoi polloi to demand that he denounce assassination! The media coverage of this is tame/lame compared to…
The Trumpzilla Show Episode II – Then the “Media” pivots to Episode II of the Trumpzilla Show with non-stop coverage of Trumpzialla’s criticism of a judge for being of Mexican descent “even though he was born in Indiana”. CNN’s Jake Tapper, the guest star on this episode of Trumpzilla, asked Trump 23 times (yes, you can count them if you like!) if Trump’s comments were “racist”. What next, will Tapper et al ask Trump if women are qualified to lead companies or drive taxis? The ridiculous obsession with obsessing over political candidates every utterance is a perfect reflection on the value placed on the American system of government, because IT is all consuming and powerful, those who vie for the levers of power must be covered in an all-consuming, complete way. Welcome to the Reality TV Show we are now doomed to live in as character actors who can be killed off on any episode: Trump’s ‘Muricah
When Video Games Teach Kids To ACTUALLY Kill – Witness the sad story of the RAF’s “Tina”, a drone operator with the task of actually assassinating those identified as ISIS, thousands of miles away, with a joystick.
The Worst Generation Is Getting Worse – The evidence is in and the facts say that the “Millennial Generation” is the least productive, including in the existential necessity of procreation, than any generation since the Visigoths. While the stats say that the Millennials are staying at home well into their 30’s now the “stat” you don’t need statistics to know the diabolical root of all this juvenile SLOTH: the assault on the family. Whether its the infatuation with homosexuality, transgenderism, abortion via failed contraception, shack-up/hookup culture and the list can go on, what used to be suppressed by Grace temptations, is now at will hedonism , what would we expect the result to be!?
Parents Now Accomplices In Pedophilia – If I told you the following story, would you believe it? A 24 year old middle-school teacher was known to be having sex, daily, with a 13 year old boy, with his parents blessing AND was carrying the boy’s child until she had an abortion. Do you think I made that up? Folks, you CAN’T make this stuff up and let me add another perverted ingredient to the story: all the kids in the class in question knew this was going on. The children have obviously been taught to believe that “School House Rock” is supposed to be “The School house Is Rockin'” and that sex is just as normal for teachers and students as homework and detention.
Liberal Atheists Celebrate VC Day (Victory over Christians Day) – With the Culture Wars now over and the diabolical side assured of its victory, its hedonistic field marshals now deliver the terms of our surrender: unconditional expulsion from all public displays of Faith: “For liberals, the question now is how to deal with the losers in the culture wars. That’s mostly a question of tactics. My own judgment is that taking a hard line (“You lost, live with it”) is better than trying to accommodate the losers, who – remember – defended, and are defending, positions that liberals regard as having no normative pull at all. Trying to be nice to the losers didn’t work well after the Civil War…”
Kirk Was Right: The Chirping Sectaries Really Do Have Nothing in Common With Christian “Conservatives” – Timothy P. Carney explores the continuing feud between “Libertarians” and “Conservatives” that Russell Kirk wrote of in his 1958 essay “Chirping Sectaries”. Carney wonders why the two former governors have taken aim at “Christian conservatives”. Kirk: “No one ever has accused libertarians of being afflicted with the centricities of genius: for the dream of an absolute private freedom is one of those visions which issue from between the gates of ivory; and the dreadful speed with which society moves today flings the libertarians outward through centrifugal force, even to the outer darkness, where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.” The Libertarian “moment” thus, of 2016, is actually a Baphomet moment and even today’s apostate, faux “conservatives” can see that.
Will YOU Go Trans Or Will you Go Carmelite? – The director of the GA ACLU resigns over Obama’s “bathroom edict”. There is NO dialogue there is only edict when it comes to the issue of “transgender” accommodation and that is part of a calculated, diabolical campaign to eliminate the natural law from the secular law. You might say, “Mitter Chur… why would they want to eliminate the natural law!?” Well, in short, because the Natural Law requires a supernatural Creator, God, and if you can eliminate think on the Natural law you can then banish thinking and acting as the Creator requires. Far fetched? hardly, considered under what conditions the early Christian martyrs were killed: refusing the worship of pagan “gods” and conforming their lives to living as a pagan idolater by recognizing for example, bigamists and adulterers as pious.
Will YOU Go Trans Or Carmelite II? – The GA ACLU Director who is a self-described “progressive” adds the following story to her resignation (h/t Life Site News): “I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered… My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer.”
It’s A Dog’s Life But Soon, Man Will Be Obeying Dog – I called this one a few weeks ago: “What if I am a dog trapped in a man’s body and wish to micturate on an oak tree in Central Park? who are you to deny me my right to be what I really am?” This has now actually happened and wait for it, I guarantee there will be copycats… er dogs. Seriously folks…
The lgBtq Fad Will Be A Chapter In a Sad History Book – Rachel Lu, a guest of the Mike Church Show, thinks that the lgBtq fad is just that and that it will ultimately give way to “nature”.
My Prediction: Trump 48, Slick Hilly 2 (states) & The Tory Anarchist Agrees – Daniel McCarthy, editor of the American Conservative magazine posits that Slick Hilly is in BIG trouble if (and I say he will) Trumpzilla improves 5 points over Mitt For Brains Romney’s 2012 tally. It is going to get ugly for Hillary, excerpt: “Trump won’t lose any of Romney’s states. Can Clinton really hold all of Obama’s? Probably not: Ohio still has some white working-class Democrats, and Trump’s prospects of winning them seem a lot better than Mitt Romney’s ever were. Trump surprised everyone with his successes in Pennsylvania’s GOP primary; if he can do five points better than Romney in the general election there, the results will be catastrophic for Clinton. Florida remains as much of a battleground as ever: there’s no indication that any trouble with Latino voters will cost him the Sunshine State. This election is as finely balanced and close as 2012 was, and that brings it down to a referendum on the status quo of the last 20 years: should the era of Bush and Clinton continue, or is it time for something new—even if what’s new is named Donald Trump?”
It’s June And The Immodesty Is About To Go Nuclear Because It WENT Nuclear – Venerable Bishop Sheen called out ‘Muricah back in the 1960’s while speaking to a group of young Catholics on “Youth and Sex”: “8:15 in the morning, the 6th of August, 1945, when we flew a military plane over this city, when we dropped that atomic bomb on it; that bomb on blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the military and the civilian, between the helper and the helped, between the wounded and the nurse and the doctor, between the living and the dead. For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits and from that time on the world has said we want no one limiting me. … You want no restraint, no boundaries, no limitsI have to do what I want to do. Now let’s analyze that for a moment, is that happiness?”
The Tragedy of Post Christian, Philosophia Perennis Devoid Thinking – Read this piece from AmConMag writer Noah Millman to get a closeup view of why Philosophia Perennis is so desperately needed to corral the erroneous thinking Men are sure to engage in when NOT grounded in the eternal quest for True Wisdom i.s. Sapientia. The issue Noah, is not whether “only the Saints” can live by the Magisterial code, it is that by God’s Grace the Saints DID live the Tradition WHILE receiving the Graces needed to do so. You cannot approach Grace as zero sum, mathematics, as in if I do ______ I will receive ______ “Grace credits” but if I do ______I will have deducted ______ Grace Credits. Grace is present in the world and we are given the supply needed at Baptism, the suffering of the Christian Faithful is simply to maintain the state you enter at Baptism, using the Gospels and the Traditional Teaching as MEANS to that END. As Padré Gaetano tells us in Humility of Heart: “And has not a saint abundant reasons, from the thought of his own weakness, to live always in a state of great humility, when he knows that from one hour to another he may lose the grace of God and the kingdom of heaven which he has merited by years of laboriously-acquired virtues? “Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”
