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-machine’s use of the MH 17 tragedy to promote a standoff with Putin that will deliver robust sales of their death machinery and all the power that comes with it. 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. “In a society essentially Neolithic, as ours unquestionably is at the moment ,—whatever one may hold its evolutionary possibilities to be,—there can be no place found for an educable person but such as a trainable person could fill quite as well or even better; he becomes a superfluous man; and the more thoroughly his ability to see things as they are is cultivated, the more his superfluity is enhanced. As the process of general barbarisation goes on, as its speed accelerates, as its calamitous consequences recur with ever-increasing frequency and violence, the educable person can only take shelter against his insensate fellow-beings, as Plato says, like a man crouching behind a wall against a whirlwind.“ – Albert J. Nock
Bodies from the MH-17 plane crash are being hordes by “separatists” in refrigerated train cars without international, investigator, access allowed
VIDEO: Purports to show MH17 being hit by a missile then crashing to the ground
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
Pat Buchanan: It is time to reevaluate our most “treasured attribute”, our open border, all are always welcome, policy and its consequences. “Now Scots are seeking to break away from England, Catalans from Spain, Corsicans from France, Venetians from Italy and Flemish from Belgium, though these peoples have lived together for centuries.”
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.
Senator Ted Cruz makes sense on Obama’s illegal amnesty grant leading to the massive swell of juveniles storming the Southern border while even Democrats now admit the 2008 law, I have been talking about for the last 10 days, is the real problem. Solution? REPEAL the law

Harry Truman is not on my list of great Presidents or of great statesmen but his post-presidential life does endear him for his frugality and humility. This story is from peggy Noonan (WSJ subscription required)
Here’s a auto-updating blog on the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight over Ukraine-the fact is, folks, no-one knows what happened yet, speculation is for the media whores who live off of the suffering of fellow humans
Ron Paul: If the war hawks and their media cheering section want to blame some government for the Malaysia plane crash tragedy, they can start with the American and EU governments that helped overthrow the legitimate Ukrainian government last spring
What is this “Reform Conservatism” that so many are so heavily breathing over? Ross Douthat informs us that it is a REAL effort with a robust set of goals and objectives, the likes of which inspired Reaganites and Clintonistas, but that is the point isn’t it? Both groups claimed success but both succeeded in growing the State and separating federalism from our governments.
Albert Jay Nock, Russian gentleman and critic of the actions that led to modernity’s rise and Man’s detachment from the practical, real world around him
Sky News claims that “pro-Russian” separatists” were responsible for shooting the plane down
Mrs Clinton has had a hand in the death of thousands: the assassination of a legitimate head of state (Ghadaffi) and the civil war that ensued and was a vote for the horrific invasion of Iraq, among others. She is also no longer Secretary of anything, so when asked by Charlie Rose who shot the Malaysian passenger jet down, she needs to be DIPLOMATIC for a change and give the only answer possible at this time: “I do not know”. Instead she is helping foment a confrontation with Russia by blaming them.
Consider this: IF a civilian group shot the Malaysian Airlines flight down over Ukraine regardless of motive then this “citizen of the world” mantra we have been fed for a decade just became a deadly pill most will not swallow. If the spread of the weapons of mass destruction has completed the transfer to individual actors with enough cash to execute the transaction then no person on earth is safe once they enter the cabin of a passenger plane. Thus, our vaunted technology march has now put the murder of hundreds at a time, from a safe, undetectable distance, in the hands of madmen. The resulting paranoia, expansion of police powers and coming mass executions (as preventative measures) is at hand. Heaven help us..
Of course the U.S. has forgotten Iran Flight 655, as we bloviates endlessly about the aggressive behavior of Russia, who is probably the culprit in the Malaysian airline shoot down,
Recall that Speaker Boehner claims that President Obama cannot just “write legislation with a pen and a cell phone” but that is EXACTLY what Obama did, AGAIN today, issuing an edict that any company that wants to alter the amount of condoms and sex sponges they offer in ObamCare plans, MUST notify employees of the change. OK, if THAT is not part of the current law then how can Obama order private business entities to do so? Impeachment, anyone?
How Senator Rand Paul is winning the foreign policy fight with war-hawk DeceptiCONS and how the voting public is turning to non-intervention over nation building. As I have stated often, of late, the key to shrinking Leviathan begins with foreign policy and ends with foreign policy. This debate, successfully waged and political arguments won, holds out the ONLY hope of saving, by shrinking the current Leviathan.
From the “I told ya so” desk: It was REPUBLICANS who financed the ads calling Chris McDaniel and Tea Party patriots “racists” in MS according to a report today at Red State, adding an exclamation point to my years long contention that party politics have no room for “principles” outside their creed: “making the most for me and thee so long as there is apathy; when constitutions reared their head, we spring to life to defame it dead”
On yesterday’s show Dr. Charles Murray talked about NOT showing your Millennial, radical autonomous tattoos in job interviews. Murray may be ahead of the curve as the tattoo removal “industry” SOARS
With all the DeceptiCON bombast on the absolute necessity of “wiretaps” and the FISA court that orders them for our “national security” it is a bit of a shock to discover that 95% of theses taps aren’t for terrorists but for drug dealers
Senator Rand Paul and TX Governor Rick Perry are having the most important debate of the soon to be launched 2016 Presidential race: foreign policy. As I have said dozens of time EVRYTHING revolves around foreign policy, a country that is at peace and amity with the world, by design, has a far better chance of being financially and morally prosperous too (my words, not MBD’s)
Patrick J Buchanan – Say hello to America the balkanized, fractured, divided and no longer homogenous in any way, super-democracy
Have the seeds of virtue, sewn below the permafrost, finally begun to thaw out and sprout? Google has moved to ban all pornography ads from their services. If this holds, perhaps the era of “Peak Porn” has been reached. Is there a pursuit of sanctifying Grace in more people’s future?
I have questioned the validity of the “we are a driving people, therefore we must drive to thrive”. How do we know that the massive web of roads built in the name of our own freedom weren’t actual trails of tears filled with angry people in a hurry to get to their next traffic jam? Now someone is asking whether the parking spaces needed to house all those vehicles is such a grand idea, watch this little film for a provocative question: dow we REALLY need to drive EVERYWHERE?

SECEDE – Are the Scottish people listening? Edward Snowden reveals that the British intelligence agency GHCQ is as nefarious and dismissive of UK citizens civil rights as the NSA is and has even devised ways to alter their behavior by altering the online content GHCQ KNOWS UK citizens are sampling!
Historical imbecility strikes again: Opponents of a plan to split CA into 6 separate states say the plan is “kooky” because “bigger is better” and there will be “a general skepticism of how dividing the state will improve it.” Ummm, because NoCal people have NOTHING in common with SoCAL people and each would benefit from electing their own Governor and two members of the U.S. Senate (if they’re dumb enough to rejoin the american Union)

The Imaginative Conservative: The “Left vs Right Fallacy” is explained by Christopher Dawson as the Christian State was one that was to be governed by men living under the same eternal rules as the King
Speaker Boehner: Obama is shredding the Constitution and writing his own laws, we must defend the Legislative branch and sue him. Kevin Gutzman: No Congressman, THAT Constitution you just cited requires that you pursue an IMPEACHMENT against the President. Me: Lawsuits are for the President’s of Microsoft
Columnist: The Federal Leviathan is performing so pathetically in most of the tasks it has commandeered that today’s liberal yews, might grow up as “conservatives” and choose community action over government coercion
Still don’t believe my contention that political parties are NOT your friend or the “friend of liberty” they are thought to be by those living the political life? See the “economic impact” the 2016 GOP convention will supposedly have on Cleveland, OH. (obsessed with FaceBook & Twitter updates in quantities that dwarf this pages daily output and the printing presses at the Fed, you probably know a couple of them and should ask them to seek counseling or a physical activity like roofing.)
Q: Was the 14th Amendment ever ratified? A: No, and Forrest MacDonald has the proof.

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.”

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
