Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest [r]epublican news, reading selections and Mike’s take on the the Tenth Amendment Center’s Turn it off video ad campaign to castrate the NSA . 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 Church of Scotland split in 1733. Those who left called themselves “seceders” and the resulting Church the “Secession Church.” The Church went by this name for more than a century, during which time it split again, but was reunited in 1829 under the disarming name of the “United Secession Church.“ – Professor Donald Livingston-The History of Secession is an American Principle
Secede! Professor Donald Livingston answers“Everything you ever wanted to know about secession but were afraid [of media and Lincoln worshippers wrath] to ask”

VIDEO: (warning: the trailer video plays automatically) TLC bubbles effusive over its relaunch of the hit show “My Five Wives” as the push to eradicate Sacramental Marriage now gets a heterosexual boost proving that this assault is just getting started an d what the real goal is: ending the Church’s role in forming and rearing the family.
Back in 2009 I warned that the Czarina of CT, Rep. Rosa de Lauro’s bill to empower the FDA to micromanage Farmer’s Markets would result in confiscation of private property i.e. produce and fines/jail for violators growing “organic” or “homegrown” foods for sale. Well, that is exactly what is happening. Now will you see the need for a divorce from Mordor on the Potomac over FDA plans to control the food supply made outside of government approved FrankenFood makers?
DeceptiCONNED: Daniel Larison explains the fallacy of “The world is on fire because the U.S. isn’t playing big and bad enough RoboCop” to super DeceptiCON Bill Kristol’s whine that it is our duty to make schools safe for muslim kids in Kiev and Damascus but instead our troops in 175 countries, battleships on every ocean and spy network in every digital device on Earth is called a “retreat”!?

Now that our pixelated overlords in media & national government have blessed the sacrament of homosexual marriage it is only a matter of time before the now radical but soon to be “mainstream” polyamory marriage fad gets a constitutional push. Then they’ll move onto telling us incest is a stupid holdover from the unenlightened Bible days and they’ll finish with the relaunch of the old TV show “Mr. Ed” featuring Mr & Mrs Ed with the Mrs played by Scarlett Johanssen
DeceptiCONNED II: Ohhhh this is rich, über warhawk, American exceptionalists tell Vladimir Putin to stay out of the Ukraine’s affairs because the Russians can’t meddle in the Ukraine’s affairs and choose their political leaders…. only we can meddle in the Ukraine and choose their political leaders!
Libertarians FOR a government guaranteed minimum income!? You read that right, now here’s the details
My Latest From The Daily Caller-Please visit and share the post to show MSM outlets how popular [r]epublicanism is
At Daily Caller – New York does NOT need a Hall Pass from Congress to split into two states. It needs a hall pass if the new state desires admission into the union and to be recognized as a Union state but that is a big “if”

It is a classic battle for epic proportions (says the WaPo). The AG’s of 30+ states plus dozens of industrial companies and “conservative” advocacy grouse head into SCOTUS to argue just how much power the EPA has over the “GREENHOUSE GASES” OVER YOUR STATE. There are those who think we don’t already know the answer to this case!? Can you say “break out the glow sticks, push mowers and dirty laundry, the EPA was just granted control of your lifestyle

When you hear your “conservative” friends yodel on endlessly about the “Liberal Media” or the corrupt “MSM” as they are convinced this is a recent event, send them here to go read Mark Twain’s speech of 1873 about the “corrupt press”
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
Albert J Nock’s: Isaiah’s Job (from Tuesday, 4 Feb, 2014 show-Ed.), the story of how the Remant is to be kept animated and active if Man is to survive perdition (our own path to destruction)

This 1860 classic work details the type of manners and etiquette every young man should learn and live his life by. I just started reading the work myself and look forward to sharing much of it here and on-air. “THE GENTLEMEN’S BOOK OF ETIQUETTE, AND MANUAL OF POLITENESS”

The counter-argument presented by John taylor of Caroline AFTER the government’s lawyer, Wickham, presented his case for the tax. I did not include this in the Carriage Tax Pamphlet but have found it online. Begin reading on pg 423.
Nomocracy: It is disturbing tow watch as Libertarians flock to the incorporation Doctrine just like Progressives and DeceptiCONS leaving us [r]epublicans and the Remnant to defend original intent as ratified and REQUIRED to have federalism (don’t worry, we don’t)
SPYIN’ EYES: The Obama kill-list is alive and well (no pun intended) and has its next American citizen target in its sites in Pakistan
TAC’s Olmstead: Don’t feel for Bode Miller after the Fable TV News crews did what they do, the fact is the Reality TV world we live in demands ever more intrusive ‘real moments” of pain and misery, failure or implied failure (if there’s no story, just make one up to get the failure card rolling, it will work). Easiest solution is to Turn it off
Daniel Larison joins me in wondering why “House of Cards” is so ludicrous in its plot line? From my perspective I wonder why they didn’t go REALLY radical and show [r]epublicans working to thwart Mordor’s wishes
The TradCathosphere goes nuclear on 3rd person reports that Pope Francis doesn’t think young people need “the fad (or mods)” of the TLM but as Father Z notes, this does not matter to the Summorum pontificum
Now Obama is trying to tell the truckers to Turn it off meaning their big rigs as the Executive Orderer in Chief issues new MPG regs with the stroke of a pen, acting as a super legislator to downsize all our cars, make them less safe and shred another page of the Constitution. Oh, wait, that was a roll of toilet paper, there IS no constitution left to shred.
Obama draws new “red line” in the Kiev snow, dares Ukranians to keep acting all Russian and stuff or you know, he’ll send John Kerry over there to threaten a military strike
CBO “study” concludes what any person with an IQ over 105 already knows: force employers to raise their wages and you put people out of work…duhhhh. Only a government agency could call this a “finding”, what next will the EPA study water and discover it is wet?
UAW efforts to force a VW plant in TN to unionize fail after UAW fat cats boasted they had the votes needed. Someone must have explained to the VW workers that UAW’ing that plant was a doorway to lower wages, lower profit sharing and the plant closing in 5 years
TIC: Is the film “Her” a window into our very near techno-future? Peter Lawler thinks so and he is onto something important with the discussion of Christian love being subdued for fear of discovering the inconvenient question: why would God love us?
If you can’t beat Obama, join him in the techno race to Twsitter-ize the vote with electronic messaging so craftily schemed up and tailored for each individual “voter” that the NSA might actually be jealous
SLICK HILLY UPDATE: Kathleen Willey wants us to know that Slick Hilly IS the war against women, recall that it was Hillary who hired the goons to torment Willey after she charged Bubba with groping her in the Oral Office. “They take up all the oxygen in the room, and everybody is depressed. We’re gonna go back to all the sordid details [if Hillary runs for president]. They need to just go away because they’re forcing themselves on us is the way I feel. Just pack your bags. You’ve had your 15 minutes. … Stop forcing us to have to look at this stuff again. We’re sick of it!”

STILL MCCAIN: McCain savages Ted Cruz for not having a plan to deal with the national debt yet grandstanding as if he did. As if McCain has any plan other than to say. “Screw it who counts that G*d D*mned thing anymore anyway!?”
Chicago’s Wrong Emanuel proves yet again that the quickest way to business success is to buy the politicians to gain subsidies and laws that guarantee you a monopoly which always comes at the consumer’s expense. Now Emanuel is going after new limo services. Why? Because they might make old limo services compete.
Trail of Tears: The “cuts” to the military that have decreased the amounts of compensation military vets were promised when they enlisted for tours of duty in our never-ending wars of aggression are now being cut and some find themselves in bread lines. Maybe someone should look and see if any of the hourly or salaried workers building the machines and supplies of war are standing in bread lines (I wager they are not)
Mish: How is your neighbor keeping up with the Joneses while everyone’s salary is either stuck or declining? CHARGE IT! That’s how

Rethinking The American Union Symposium – Allen Mendenhall’s “Secession and Messianic Statism Part II” is the most well thought out, provocative yet motivational from the reclaim liberty and the liberty of the Spirit, I have read since Gildersleeve’s Creed of The Old South. Folks, STOP what you are doing and read this, then read it to your kids, then read it to your grandmother, then print it and slip it in your neighbor’s mailbox. An excerpt “The American Union no longer represents America. America is dead, and the American Union killed it. In its place is a consolidated bureaucracy that carries out standardized programs to enforce uniform mediocrity.”
Rethinking the American Union, Symposium, rolls on with Allen Mendenhall’s “Secession and messianic statism Part I” at Nomocracy in politics.

FLASHBACK: Jeffrey Tucker reminds us that the merchant class is the antithesis to the Leivathan state. Why, the, are we so rude and dismissive of their efforts? Here is my interview with Jeffrey on this from 2011.
Great men have made great stories under trees, yes trees as Brad Birzer recounts and inspires us to look to nature for strength and inspiration, from time to time
So WHAT does the NSA actually look like these days? Is it the harmless little 5 story office building shown in most stories? Or is it this hulking, sprawling, menacing looking place where tens of THOUSANDS of cars can park so citizens can spy on their fellow citizens
The Fame of Our Fathers: What makes a famous Founder famous and why are so many, once famous, now not known at all? The answer lies partly in the fickleness of any given age and what it needs to exalt itself, the rest comes from the Founders own pursuit of Fame as I chronicled in Fame of Our Fathers. Here’s an audio sample explaining “conditores imperiorum” and you can buy the 3 CD set there
Where the Jobs Aren’t – Illinois’ Policy Institute’s Director tells Land of Lincoln lubbers what [r]epublicna Mike Church Show Fans have know for years. The Wrong Emmanuel criminal enterprise that teamed up with the gang in Springfield to raise corporate tax rates to keep Chicago in public loot has caused a massive exodus to nearby Indiana and even as far away as Texas. This shows that people ARE willing to “secede” from bad government as “withdrawing to another polity is just that

Glen Greenwald completely demolishes the ridiculous and lethal claims that the President has a justified “right” to issue assassination orders to anyone on earth at any time anywhere. This new memo detailing the Obama Kill List parameters, if there are any, should scare the bejesus belt out of any liberty lover. “If you believe the president has the power to order US citizens executed far from any battlefield with no charges or trial, then it’s truly hard to conceive of any asserted power you would find objectionable.”
LATIN PHRASE OF THE DAY: imprimisque hominis est propria veriinquisitio atque investigatio – the first duty of man is investigating the truth
FLASHBACK to “Times That Try Mens Souls”, Mike’s latest feature length docudrama – The Widow Who Saved The Revolution, who was she? the mystery is finally revealed. This woman took the Hessian Colonel Donop into her home of Dec., 23rd and kept him there until December 27th, long enough to prevent him reinforcing Trenton, NJ and squashing Washington’s Crossing Cell Mates Snowden & Clapper!?
Rethinking The America Union. “Evaluating The Current Union of States” a symposium suggested by Y/T has now taken up at Nomocracy in Politics.
