Mandeville, LA – Mike Church’s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest outrages generated by our all knowing, benvolent SpyFare friends at the NSA 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. “But civilization, including a civilized market place, depends, as Wilhelm Röpke has observed, on moral, imaginative and intellectual preferences that do not arise spontaneously from the economy as such.

Federal judge inserts his influence where it does not belong, striking down part of the TX Legislature’s recent act to reign in abortions in the state. There is NO “constitutional right” to an abortion and if the 14th Amendment is to be taken literally, a soon to be born baby has the same expectation of “rights” including “life” as a newly emancipated slave did in 1865
The outrage of the latest SpyGate revelations that the U.S. spies on its allies is clear-we will use this info to extort and blackmail those “allies” who we spy on and the press is covering for this, claiming “…why, everyone does it!” If that’s the case then what would be our reaction if the Brits began leaking the personal peccadilloes of our political class

Glenn Greenwald: The entire planet knows that the U.S. is spying on every living subject and its not to “prevent terrorism”, it is to provide the U.S. government with the means of extorting the rest of the world
Folks you just can’t make this stuff up. The historical stupidity of all too many people with internet connections is shocking and manifests itself whenever the subject of the “Confederate flag” comes up. This writer accuses the invaded Southern States of “slaughtering” 110,000 U.S. soldiers, as if the “slaughter” of 3 times that number of Confederate soldiers if some glorious achievement
Buchanan: Why non-stop spying on your allies and friends is NOT good business and indicates that “the normal life of countries” is never coming back to the U.S.
