Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, State vs State over weeds? The week we are to celebrate the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, there seems to be a dearth of his presence with questions over his existence and life (you read that right) and the brutal violence gripping the streets of New York. 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. “As I was with the troops at Fort Lee, and marched with them to the edge of Pennsylvania, I am well acquainted with many circumstances, which those who live at a distance know but little or nothing of. Our situation there was exceedingly cramped, the place being a narrow neck of land between the North River and the Hackensack. Our force was inconsiderable, being not one-fourth so great as Howe could bring against us. We had no army at hand to have relieved the garrison, had we shut ourselves up and stood on our defence.” – Thomas Paine from “The Crisis” 22, December, 1776
Who would have thunk it? A WaPo writer questions the historical accuracy of the story of Jesus of Nazareth, claiming there is no historical evidence Our Lord ever walked the Earth
VIDEO: When NYC Mayor deBlasio shows up at the hospital to grieve over the loss of the two slain NYPD officers, the cops in attendance turn their backs on the Mayor, so recently, so cluelessly joining protesters against his own Police Department, fanning the flames of resentment
Meanwhile the anger at “the cops” is still simmering over the Garner and Brown deaths DESPITE it leading to the violence weighed on the heads of NYPD
Less and less kids are believing in Santa Claus these days, I wonder if that’s related to their parents lack of belief in REAL Saints?
Rand Paul bolts away from DeceptiCONS in Cuba relations, repeating the argument I made yesterday that embargoes haven’t “changed the regime” but they have certainly damaged the people living under the regime
The Usual Suspects – The arguments being made against normalizing relations with Cuba by McCain, Graham and the war-hawk caucus are the same arguments with the same language they made to invade Syria-Libya-Iraq etc and they make just about as much sense: 0.0. Question on that score, have YOU ever seen an enemy “emboldened”? What did THAT look like?
FROM THE MIKE CHURCH SHOW: Fr. Ripperger (The Exorcist) gave this stirring call to action to END Separation of Church and State, view/listen to the video and form your opinions and counter opinions, but base them on the fact of what the Separation has delivered
Guess which Americans most want normal relations with Cuba? CUBANS, which blows the lid off the DeceptiCON “the american people aren’t for this either” line and then begs and even bigger question: Do we have representative democracy or not or are we living in such awe of the intellectual firepower of the Marco Rubios of the world that we’ve acquiesced to their view every time it contravenes ours?
George Clooney wants to know since when did the fearless envelope pushers of the bounds of decency cower when a couple of “hackers” in nerd attire threaten to bring their industry down because they don’t like a film?
TIC: Is it REALLY time for “conservatives” to get behind a movement the libs don’t want to touch: revitalizing towns and cities as places to live and work AND raise families? Bruce Frohnne says that was pretty much how it used to be
If Nebraska and Oklahoma don’t want CO weed crossing their borders as contraband then maybe instead of fighting lawsuits that will tally up tens of millions in legal bills they should JOIN CO and make the weed (that’s what it is) legal
Guess what else was stashed in the CRomibus spending monstrosity last week? A blanket authorization for the NSA to collect all “non-public” data records on everyone, anywhere in the U.S. it wants to. I have to wonder just how long some “tea part” members can keep up the facade that the GOP is “their party”, when it acts like it is the Castro Brothers
How dumb is Congress, without the IRS to harass and collect the extortion known as income taxes, who will pay for the warfare state and Boehner’s nicotene patches? Yet the IRS is whining they may have to shut down because Congress cut their funding. Mark Twain said of Congress. “Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” – Mark Twain
The GayStapo strikes again, this time claiming the career of a tenured professor at CATHOLIC Marquette University because he criticized another professor’s PUBLIC heterophobia for telling any student who opposed “gay marriage” to “quit her class”. So, where the most rigorous “multicultural” debate is supposed to be raging, on college campae, we find a very selective set of “cultures” one can defend or be a member of. Shame on Catholic Marquette which is apparently no longer Catholic.
Ron Paul praises Obama’s decision to normalize relations with Cuba. I concur with Paul but would like to have seen the U.S. Senate act in its Constitutional role here
Daniel Larison appropriately fetes the Marco Rubio for President obsession, beginning with the imbecility of not talking to the Cubans and propping up the Castro/Communist regime while punishing Cubans
FLASHBACK: Ron Paul is asked in a 2012 GOP debate how he would handle foreign policy with Cuba. “Talk to them, like we talked and traded with the Soviets”
Looking for a New Years Resolution? Why not resolve everyday as it is New Years to practice the 3 Marks of Manhood: Become your family’s Priest, King and Prophet
The Volokh Conspiracy has much more detail on the matter and can confirm that being outspoke and supportive of speech the defends traditional marriage is grounds for “disciplinary action”. This is the environment college students are being “educated” in, where politically protected classes of “minorities” enjoy hiring and firing powers over those they disagree with. I would make the obvious connection to old German countries with lots of red and black on their flags but you already did that. If this happens at a Catholic School, what is the point of sending your Catholic kids there when Catholicism is nowhere to be found?
If you loved yesterday’s 3rd hour of David Simpson and my discussions on the near usefulness never-ending opinionating and a near total lack of intellectual discourse, this piece is the basis for our discussion from Br. Francis Maluf
I am not buying the sudden and ridiculous decision by Sony to yank the Christmas day broadcast of “The Interview” because of anonymous “hacker threats”. One has to wonder why the NSA/CIA/FBI who seem to know the whereabouts of anyone of us, anywhere on earth and can jam our communications or just lock us up, DOESN’T know how to assure Sony and theater owners of their safety. What exactly IS the spyfare state for if it cannot be used in everyday “terror fighting” activities like this!?
If you thought that the spy powers of Congress had gotten as egregious to our rights under the 4th Amendment you thought wrong and Republican fingerprints are all over the NEW, spyfare “regulations” that virtually guarantee an expansion of the State
So what exactly is wrong with teaching your very young children of the legend of Santa Claus, provide that Santa gives way to the timely introduction of the Christ child whose miracles and love of good children dwarfs that of the “jolly ol’ elf” (or Saint as it were)
The bill that contained the new spy regs was NOT DEBATED and was only discovered by Rep Justin Amash just before it sailed through the House 325-100
Federal Judge tells Dear Leader that his “immigration order” has about as much authority as the same language printed on some Charmin TP. [from Foxnews.com] He also cited Obama’s argument that he was proceeding with executive action after Congress failed to act on comprehensive immigration legislation, and countered: “Congressional inaction does not endow legislative power with the Executive.”
DeceptiCONNED I: Are you ready for Bush vs Clinton II? Here’s the followup question, are you ready for Bush vs Clinton III? The corporatist consolidation is evident in the furor to call the primaries early and get about the business (business is meant practically) of electing one from our royal blood-lines.
Amendment Convention Cometh? I’m not the only one who has read Brutus the anti-Federalist and I also now not alone in promoting the fact that the Constitution DID make possible the Leviathan we have today; thus the fatal flaws must be repaired to have ANY HOPE of a [r]epublicana recovery
MBD: Jeb, do the planet and the tatters of the U.S. a favor and do NOT accept royal orders to be coronated GOP nominee for 2016. If you do, the effort to replace Reagan without relying on a Bush will suffer its final, fatal setback
Laudate Deus – The TX State Capitol will allow the display of a nativity scene this week, the scene was paid for and conceived by a Catholic group and 1 GOP member of the TX Legislature
Who is winning the Christmas Wars? Bill Donahue from the Catholic league has an update
Now that we have the PROOF that Obama’s lawlessness is bearing lawless fruit with THOUSANDS standing in-line to snap up the amnesty cards, Congress has every incentive and pieces of evidence it needs to impeach and or harass Obama into some form of submission until his term ends
At least the Senate ATTEMPTED to have a debate over the ISIS AUMF and whether it should continue and at what funding etc. In the end the wars proceed apace with no authorization, no goals, no strategy and no constitutional guidance
Meanwhile, Ron Paul is the only public figure I know of making any sense over this madness when he calls for abolishing the CIA the IRS, bringing all the troops home
Read Mike’s essay on Jefferson’s “wall of separation [between church and state] letter and the story behind the letter’s intent to end the religious observations of the Washington and Adams administrations
Ross Douthat points out that the cultural differences between the upper/middle classes and the lower middle classes in the United States are the upper class has “conserved” their marital and religious way of life better than the lower class. This is the exact point Charles Murray has made in his “Coming Apart” book
Catholic Gentlemen Hear Your Calling: ‘Tis time to return devotions to our family lives and our personal lives, in a bold, Church Militant manner. The new replica, 1916 Army Rosary is ideal for this
DeceptiCONNED I: Remember the new friends/allies we were going to make in Syria and Iraq in order to turn ISIS back and end the greatest scourge of terrorism humanity has ever encountered (second only to HYDRA and SPECTRE)? Turns out our new pals aren’t so reliable and or friendly either
Read Mike Church’s take on the CIA’s torture scandal “Our Lady of Guadalupe Ended Aztec Torture-The CIA & “Conservatives” Brought It Back”
Read Mike Church’s essay – God and Man at Richmond-Challenging the status quo of “separation of Church and State”
Maybe the Feds wouldn’t have to worry about violence and death abroad as a result of a CIA torture report if the CIA weren’t told by Congress to torture in the first place? Maybe?
Imaginative Conservative: “The Pill” gets the treatment it is due from Bruce Frohnen as the marriage and family killer it is
Read the following story and note three things on it’s graphs: 1. The “industries” where there is little decline in income for “millennials” are government subsidized and government run and 2. The biggest decline is in the group that has the least necessity: retail and leisure and 3. WHERE is Mike Rowe and the graph number for MANUFACTURING?
Remember the Christmas War and the Christmas Truce? WWI was the end result of “Liberty-The God That Failed” and its bloody “Holy War” was just the start of the bloodiest century in mankind’s historyI am elated to learn that Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh and 2 “constitutional law professors” I’ve never heard of are “the leaders promoting a Constitutional Convention”
TIC: Is history only relevant to this age if it comports with OUR understanding of things or is The Truth, as it occurred in any generation, to be valued as True in EVERY generation? Fr. Dwight Longenecker explains that it is the latter that makes True History and its study possible
No offense to Eminem (he is cited as a cause for the Court’s review) but since when does the SCOTUS get to decide what is “offensive” in Social Media? Where do we find THAT power in the Constitution?
Now that Christendom has perished it must be buried as Christ was buried but that doesn’t mean that A future Christendom is not possible and that we should live everyday as though it is indeed happening among the Church militant
