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. “When offered a choice between two politically intolerable alternatives, it is important to choose neither. And when that choice is presented in rival arguments and debates that exclude from public consideration any other set of possibilities, it becomes a duty to withdraw from those arguments and debates, so as to resist the imposition of this false choice by those who have arrogated to themselves the power of framing the alternatives. These are propositions which in the abstract may seem to invite easy agreement.“ – Alisdair Macintyre – Election 2004
Secede! Professor Donald Livingston answers“Everything you ever wanted to know about secession but were afraid [of media and Lincoln worshippers wrath] to ask”
Brewer chooses the secular sludge of the NFL’s SuperBowl over the liberty of her constituents, VETOES SB 1062 saying “…could result in unintended and negative consequences. I sincerely believe that Senate Bill 1062 has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve…” Brewer said. Political will does not grow on trees. It did not take “courage” for Franklin Pierce to veto the 1853 verso of ObamaCare. It did not take courage for Grover Cleveland to veto 443 appropriations bills, it took the virtue of honoring a promise and an oath. SB 1062 did not violate the AZ Constitution and clarified a point of law already made clear in most states. Brewer chose Roger Goodell & a football game over Arizonan’s sovereignty. Does the Legislature have a veto override in them?
Here is how the MSM portrayed Brewer’s veto, Arizona is now all sunshine, happy couple kissing and streets filled with goodness now that the scourge of religious freedom has been baited back into the theological characters it oozed from. NOT a shockuh.
Rod Dreher says the culture/political and propaganda war for SSM is over and the Traditional side has lost, get over it. Isn’t that a bit like Simon peter saying the Romans & Pharisees beat Jesus, get over it? You don’t “get over” canon or dogma. The traditionalist has been told to “get over it” for over 100 years now and with every affront that is “gotten over a new one, equally repulsive …. Read the rest of my commentary here
Coincidence!? Oh puh-frikkin-lease. Holder, Brewer and TX Federal judge all rule/bloviate/issue edicts on same issue, the same day? Federal judge defies 2/3 TX legislature, 73% TX voters, rules marriage is whatever Obama, Holder and SCOTUS say it is
The NFL is now threatening to yank the 2015 SuperBowl from AZ if that state moves to protect the religious liberty of its citizens as James Madison and Thomas Jefferson et al fought so valiantly for. The league says “Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard…We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should the bill be signed into law, but will decline further comment at this time.” So the NFL is now determining WHAT religious canon it deems as “tolerant”!? Time for a new national pastime folks.
I’ve already fielded dozens of grave dancers who want to know what we bigots are going to do now that our dark art’s playing field is shrinking so fast: Homosexual marriages, abortion on demand up to 30 weeks, no-fault divorces et cetera. Pope Bendict had an answer for these times as did the martyr’s Vincent, Agnes and St Polycarp.
Here is the REAL size of US Forces prior to the start of WWII (graphic courtesy BBC) and guess what!? The military is not NEARLY going to be hacked to “pre-WWII levels” so if these are the facts, then why are “conservative” heroes in Mordor saying things NOT true
IGNORE the State legislatures, Citizen approved ballot initiatives and most importantly the state’s constitutions. That is the advice the AG of the US is now shoveling out as the Tyranny of Obama makes it’s way into the States now. Effectively, the Executive Branch is organizing a coup against the States on behalf of 2 % of the population (homosexuals).
Are you one of the doubting Thomas’s that could not understand and was apprehensive to invest in “BitCoin”? After the MtGox site apparently has been deleted, your prudence (and mine) has seen a reward of sorts. It is not known how many MILLIONS of our counterfeit dollars are tied up in apparently worthless counterfeit BitCoins
Not DeceptiCONNED (for a change) – The GOP finally has a decent tax policy idea that appears to be ON THE PATH to being [r]epublican
Tell SCOTUS to dust off their “we run this country and the states” gavel and watch as a religious freedom act passes AZ and is IMMEDIATELY struck down by the 9th circuit court of appeals
Patrick J Buchanan: What is AZ to do, make the choice to NOT serve homosexuals a crime, even if it is part of your religious beliefs?
Here is the Way of The Gun digital media file I promised to post for your review of the double standards applied when discussing homosexuality, same sex marriage etc.
FLASHBACK: Kevin Gutzman and I discuss the relies part of the first Amendment and how it does NOT apply to the states
And now cue the “don’t balance the budget on the backs of our troops” violin sonata. Of course, none wants anyone who served to be denied what was promised them for health services but the long term formula for retirement of 8 MILLION and counting, does not compute and Mordor is to blame for the lie
It’s not the Ice World of Hoth but Ukrainians now demand their own version of the Second Amendment
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.
Ted Cruz FTW: Teddie takes his Cruzers on a tour through Tea Party candidates that are running to defeat current Senate Republicans THIS primary season. That’s quite the brazen behavior, in the CORRECT direction that warms the cockles of my heart
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”!?
VIDEO: My latest on Senator Mary Landrieu’s deception and corruption. Trivia: I actually submitted this with the title: Landrieu’s Legacy? Louisiana Addicted To Bailout Crack
I often encourage listeners to explore what the Founding Fathers may have read that filled them with their [r]epublican ideas and the Spirit of ’76. The Cato letters are one such source and if we look at Cato letter #87 we find all the admonition needed to avoid standing armies and the inevitable wars they are called upon to fight
See today’s Prep Better, Founders Pass Members Section for the link to the Cato letters including #87
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

Why is it a bad idea to have a standing army just laying around? CATO, the 18th century Whig, read by most of the Founders, explains as an Englishmen, meaning this school of thought comes from the conservative tradition the Founders inherited and defended
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.

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)

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.

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.”
