Bannon’s City of Man: When Machiavelli Runs Out Of Ammo, You Get Trumpzilla’d

Mandeville, LA - I just read then re-read President Trump's statement in response to claims made by Steve Bannon in Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury book about the Trump White House's early days. The seeming success of Fox News and talk radio has made many conservatives think they now have a massive media empire. In truth, they have constructed an intellectual ghetto that no one else wants to visit." Whether […]

Veritas et Sapientia – Kingdoms Rise, Kingdoms Fall But God Is Always King

Mandeville, LA - If this kingdom was so great and lasting without the aid of the gods, why is the ample territory and long duration of the Roman empire to be ascribed to the Roman gods? For whatever is the cause in it, the same is in the other also. But if they contend that the prosperity of the other also is to be attributed to the aid of the gods, I ask of which? For the other nations […]

A Story of Humility of Heart, In Real Life

Mandeville, LA -  I pursue the Grace of Humility in everything I do. Note that I "pursue", I never "attain" because as Augustine says (from my edition of Humility of Heart, available here): “To whatever sublime height of sanctity we may have attained, a fall is always to be feared.” For, as says St Augustine, there is no holiness that cannot be lost through pride alone: “If there be holiness in […]

It’s a SURE Bet, Jesus Knew Gal Queda Would Arise When He Made Marriage

Mandeville, LA - The conceit of our times is evident in nearly everything we read, see, and hear. Humility has no bridegroom in the era of ME. Case in point, the latest attempts to shoe-horn the inerrant word of Our Lord into the pseudo-conservative and vulgar progressive latest avant-garde lifestyles. Case in point, The Week's Damon Linker weighs in on the Holy Father Frances's latest efforts to "liberalize" Chuch teaching […]

My Confession, I Supported War, Violence & The Police State. No More

Mandeville, LA  - Some listeners and site followers cannot believe that I am not "all in" against "the (Ferguson, MO) mob" (one emailer informed me the protestors in Ferguson are "lower than animals"). I am also, certainly, not "all-in" against the police (police officers CERTAINLY have legitimate, dangerous roles to play in our society) and have never taken a position on the National Guard's presence because that is a political question for another topic.

Military Charity For The Philippines – I Didn’t Authorize That Expenditure!

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I heard today that the United States Marine Corps was on the ground, marshaling crowds about, handing out supplies and trying to fix these things. I did not authorize the United States military, I did not extend my sovereign sphere to authorize the military to do cleanup in the Philippines. I don’t want to be taxed for it. I don’t want to become an […]

Senator Mike Lee, Talking True Conservative Sense And Reason

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This story here in The Atlantic, Mike Lee, talking about how the GOP has got to part with spin and personality. Well, now, Lee is wise to say this because spin and personality are what? What is that? That’s sophistry. It means nothing. All it does is allow people to use the term “conservative” to personally and monetarily benefit from it. In other words, […]

Birzer and St Augustine on Kingdoms, Thieves, and Governments

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Approximately 1600 years ago, St Augustine knew better than to trust the government, calling them nothing more than a gang of thieves and robbers. And what have we learned in the time since then? Nothing, we trust them implicitly, we cash government checks, and we look up to them as if THEY are Saints. In these times we are in a dark tunnel and […]
