Mandeville, LA – Mike Church’s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest from Paul Gottfried, trying to define Right Wing. Read along with my 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.“I trust men of discernment will think differently, and see that by such works & preparations we have not only delayed the Operations of the Campaign till It is too late to effect any capital Incursion into the Country, but have drawn the Enemy’s forces to one point and obliged them to decline their plan, so as to enable us to form our defence on some certainty.” – George Washington-after retreating from Long Island to Manhattan, 8 Sept., 1776
Mike Church’s Founders Tradin’ Post announces Christmas discount program. Take 20% off purchases of $100 and $50 off of purchases over $200.
Look who is paying nearly all—
scratch that—look who is paying all, plus the tip, of American income taxes (hint, it isn’t the lower middle class because they have sunk to serf levels now)
Well, I hope it was COLD milk at least. Milk prices will double at years end if the corruptocracy’s karmissars don’t agree to a new “farm policy bill” and thus milk subsidies end and milk will rise to 1949 prices. Question: who comes up with such stupidity? The Chick Fil A cows are smarter than this

Paoul Anderson’s tale of time travel is an insightful reminder that our ancestors were as smart if not smarter than we are and in complete control of their technology
There’s no better long form reading project than getting familiar with John Taylor of Caroline’s “Tyranny Unmasked” quite possibly the best tract ever written on the subject of what he called “protection” but what we call “corporatism”
What did the English think of the North’s ridiculous claims that the Confederate States 1. Could not secede 2.Were never sovereign & Independent and 3. Were justified in their defense of themselves? Read all about it, start on p. 650
H.L. Mencken is worth reading on many topics but especially on Gettsyburg, you will find his entire critique of Lincoln’s “Gospel” beginning on page 173
The biography of Albert Gallatin is worth knowing and this “American Statesman” book on him is a good start
John Taylor of Caroline was the most influential [r]epublican voice of his day and his work remains as necessary reading. This essay by the great Joseph Stromberg, first published in 1982, explains Taylor’s [r]epublicanism and libertarian thought, unlike any other American of his time

One of the most accomplished yet little know Founder AND Christian Gentlemen was John Randolph of Roanoke, I am researching him for reference and for a good volume on his life to republish, this one is rare and good
That’s what we thought you’d say, now can you sing the chorus to High School Lusical 3? “We’re all in this together…” as google brass have been shuttled around the world without paying their “airline fees” or fuel taxes never mind their planes are docked at gubbmin run airfields, but it was all just a misunderstanding…
“America no longer strides the globe as a great colossus” Is the complaint oozing from the latest American Exceptionalist to write a book about how he doesn’t want us to police the world then process to complain that we don’t police the planet
Nomocracy in Politics: The virtues necessary for the Constitution to be effective are the “lower virtues”. “This constitutional morality is no set of theological convictions or habits; it does not explicitly demand any particular conception of the human good beyond recognition of the duty to uphold the Constitution. It is not some high virtue of the saint. But this lower virtue is essential for constitutional government to survive.”

LATIN PHRASE OF THE DAY: De mortuis nihil nisi bonum – Of the dead nothing unless good
The HealthCare.Gov site has cost a measly $377 MILLION so far, a mere drop in the bucket for what it cost to fly 22 members of Congress and Senator Ted Cruz to S.A. for Mandela’s Commiepalooza
The amount of “housework” men do has doubled since women burned bras and earned the “right” to get stuck in traffic jams after a day of dodging their boss’s harassments but still the members of Gal-Queda want more. Of course a sure fire fix for this would be to abolish women in the workplace beyond 10% of the nominal age-group population (yeah, THAT’S gonna happen) or we could just live with 2/3 less electronic gadgetry and maybe gift our wives and daughters the left-over leisure time?
Speaker Boehner throws tantrum over American people-who happen to be members of groups who oppose Ryan’s ridiculous “spending restraint”-that other “American People” are being hampered by their efforts to shower corporatists with more OPM
Article V Amendment Convention talk is picking up proverbial steam, now being promoted on the pages of town hall.com and Prof. Kevin Gutzman and Yours Truly are mentioned alongside Mark Levin whom the author apparently thinks has always been a promoter of Article V conventions (he hasn’t-see here)
Gentleman’s Tip of The Day: How to take care of a hat. No, we don’t mean baseball CAPS we’re talking classic fedoras and other classy “toppers”
Columnist: Sorry, Libertarians, inequality DOES matter. This guy should read Dr. Walter Block’s “The case For Discrimination” and begin a journey to understanding that inequality in the human world does not matter as long as we’re all equal before God. Our attempts to “fix” inequality attempt to elevate our “genius” to God’s level, an arrogant and sinful activity that produces the current “equality state” the same people rail against.
Tim Carney answers the Libertarian Question about inequality: “It depends…”
Ryan Lizza gives u stye most complete picture of the history of the NSA, the C.I.A. I have read this year and asks the question: why won’t Obama tell the spy fare state to stand down?
