Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the latest from a world gone mad. The assault on the family unit designed and gifted to us by God continues. I relay the battle brave Catholics like Pope Pius XI have waged against that evil we used to call Communism; THAT sounds today like American, majority rule. 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 propagators of the new doctrine are pleased to assure us that, out of jealousy toward England, foreign sovereigns will lavish their succors upon us, as if these sovereigns could sincerely applaud rebellion; as if they had not colonies, even here in America, in which it is important for them to maintain obedience and tranquility. There are many persons who, to gain their ends, extol the advantages of a republic over monarchy. I will not here undertake to examine which of these two forms of government merits the preference. I know, however, that the English nation, after having tried them both, has never found repose except in monarchy. I know, also, that in popular republics themselves, so necessary is monarchy to cement human society, it has been requisite to institute monarchial powers“ – John Dickinson, speech to the Continental Congress, 1 July, 1776
It is illegal to launch tear gas against ISIS in Iraq but perfectly legal to gas civilians in Ferguson, MO (per 1993 UN conventions on chemical weapons)
Rick Perry stumbles over old, dusty copy of TX Constitution after he is indicted for abuse of his office as Governor of TX. Perry vows to finally read the ancient text and use it to save his Presidential campaign. MEanwhile, TX Democrats think it is 2006 again as they trot out Nancy Pelosi’s campaign to wrest control of the House from hapless Republicans. See if this sounds familiar from the Star Telegram? “We think it has an absolute impact because Texans are waking up today with a Republican in office that has created this culture of corruption in Austin,” said Texas Democratic Executive Director Will Hailer, speaking to reporters in the Capitol minutes after Perry’s news conference. “People want to see a change of leadership in Austin.”

Baton Rouge LA refuses to bow to the will of the radical homosexual movement as the EBR Council REJECTS a “fairness ordinance” that would have required BR businesses to accommodate homosexuals in their serving and hiring practices. The greater story is that BR’s big business community was actually BEHIND this ordinance showing that the benign process of capitalism cannot a moral people make(see Wilhem Roepke’s “Humane Economy”)
WI becomes the first state in the Union that implements a mandatory outside agency review for all police shootings meaning the cops cannot play executioner then judge and jury as well. This was all brought on by the shooting death of an 18 year old, blonde haired, blue eyed white kid.
Well the Ferguson MO curfew has been lifted but the protestors, in day 9 now, have not gone home and show no signs of letting up. Exactly WHAT they are protesting for, I still have seen no credible response, only the ubiquitous “we want justice”. If I saw the mob carrying copies of St Thomas Aquinas’s Summa Theologia I might buy that a civil disobedience is in order to counteract the society wide damage.
Christopher Ferrara calls all Catholics to read THIS and then pray on stopping the upcoming “Synod”. If you have been to a Novus Ordo Mass lately you have already seen the barely living Remnant of the Traditional Latin Mass, replaced by a melange of what is served up by the latest Mega-Church of The Six Flags near you. The next demolition will be un regulated divorce and remarriage and making room for baptizing bastards and the children of lesbians
Speaking of the ISIS in Iraq and elsewhere, Srdja Trifkovic reminds us that ISIS is now a Jihad, is equipped with our weapons, lots of Saudi and Kuwaiti money and now controls enough of Iraq to place serious oil resources within their grasp. This is not your father’s jihadist group
The Archbishop of Mosul warns the West (that’s us) that the Islamic horde of those following the so-called prophet must not continue entering Western countries unless Westerners want to experience what he has and is living through. “I have lost my diocese to Islam, you in the West will also become victims of the Muslims”
Have you dumped a bucket of ice water on your head, filmed the event, posted the event and then claimed it all in the name of self-less charity & love for your fellow man? Well since none of what I just proposed to you has anything to do with charity but a lot to do with Vanity, maybe some #icebucketchallenge humility (there is none) is in order
The Ice Bucket Challenge post I authored, challenging them to a a prayer bucket challenge has netted 95,000 views, 0.0 prayers and lots of hate mail. Slate points out that to take the challenge is to NOT have to donated to “charity”.
What would happen if we just admitted to the overbearing fact that the U.S. has NOT solved the problems associated with race relations despite a mountain of laws and trillions of dollars
What is Dear Leader, Chairman MaObama’s Administration hiding from his OWN Inspector Generals. Not that government accountants, hired to monitor government accountants, was ever going to produce more than smoke bombs
Warrior Cop display in Ferguson, MO “shocked” MO Governor Jay Nixon
A conversation recorded on a cameraphone tells the Michael Brown shooting story in a completely new way, one that will not make the Rev Al Sharpton very happy
Some Libs WANT the South to secede so they can try and prove their superiority (again)
Father Jerzy counseled the Poles to take their opposition to brutal, Godless communism, on their knees, in prayer, to the highest authority there is: Our Heavenly Father. Of course this will bring out the howls of “keep religion out of politics!” which is amusing if you know that the religion of the American State, with its own gods (Lincoln) and temples (Lincoln’s memorial, Washington’s “monument” et cetera). Under the legitimate authority of that god, Americans have legally murdered over 54 million babies since 1972 but by all means, let’s “keep religion out of politics”
ISIS in Syria continues to boast and brag of their murderous way, this time celebrating the killing of 700 Syrians
Is there life in the “uninsured” world of ObamaCare that will actually qualify you AS insured AND provide relief from medical expenses? There sure is and while it’s not perfect, David Simpson says he and his family of 6 have given it a go for a full year now and offers a report card
Here is what happens when 150 years of teaching Constitution “precedence” becomes the official owners manual for the Constitution as ratified and the federal government system it created.
WaPo’sPhillip Kennicott makes the point few have the courage to make: the scenes we are watching from Ferguson MO ARE the world we have allowed to be built by and for the United States of America. What I see looks a lot more like Ridley Scott’s “Black Hawk Down” than an episode of the 1970’s “SWAT”. The images of convenience stores burning as a backdrop for the tear gas blasts shows the dispensibility of the shallow, meaningless consumer state that sedates the hoi polloi while creating the taxes for the real world authoritarian state, lurking and ready to mobilize. THIS is what the corrupt welfare, warfare and corporatist states have created. Ferguson is YOUR or MY town, a resentful, rebellious teenager meeting an itchy trigger fingered cop away. My God, what have we done? BIGGER question, what here is good that we can harness to DO something about it?
Tom Englehardt: One Nation, Under SWAT. The rise of the Commando Cop is NOT “necessary” and is not “a logical response” to the “growing violence” of our streets. It is a result of a Mount Everest of cash, made available by an apathetic public that has swallowed the philosophy that they are WHOLLY incapable of protecting themselves in any situation
Joseph Pearce defines what Christendom IS not what itv WAS because as Tollkein reminded us history is a Long defeat with occasional glimpses of victory. Pearce says Christendom is “Christendom is best and most succinctly defined in traditional ecclesiological terms as the Church Militant. Whereas the Church in eternity is the Church Suffering (purgatory) and the Church Triumphant (heaven), the Church in time is always the Church Militant, which is to say that she is the Church at War. Her war is with the world and its worldliness. Her war is not fought with soldiers but with saints and also with those sinners who are trying to become saints. Her weapons are not those that bring death but life to her enemies. The culture of life that she brings with her is animated by the goodness of virtue, the truth of reason, and the beauty of God’s image in His creatures. She is the wellspring of civilization.”
Yes Virginia, There Is A Tyranna-Claus! Hey Virginians, you were told by your governor, your AG and now a Federal Appeals Court that your 236 year-old Constitution is no longer valid or of any force unless Federal Judges say it is. The history of the Old Dominion has just received the greatest slander ever applied. Secede…
Every time this subject comes up I get an ear and email box full of police officer hate mail: The unnecessary militarization of nearly all police forces in the U.S. What was on display after the tragic shooting of a teenage in a St Louis suburb on Saturday was right out of a Hollywood backlot, MILITARY gear, armored vehicles, weapons, BIG weapons and an army like presence. For a people who treasure their self-government, these spectacles, viewed cynically do not inspire hope for the future of that practice. For example “Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, which are armored vehicles designed to withstand improvised explosive device attacks, were dispersed to eight different municipalities, the smallest being Pulaski County, population 13,402.” For WHAT purpose!?
My conversation with Michael Brendan Dougherty on Iraq and the deplorable conditions brought about by our hyperbolic, bellicose foreign policies
The Vote Yes for Scottish Independence campaign has produced a new TV ad that is worth watching and mimicking. Take the pro-life themes and apply them to the independent statehood of America’s States and we have an actionable plan to leave Mordor
The latest polling in Scotland shows that the “you cannot make it without Downing street wiping your bottom for you” is winning the fear campaign. If the Scottish people bail on Independence, like Lee surrendering at Appomattox there will be a lethal pall covering a turn away from consolidation and all the war, theft, debt and deceit it so expertly conducts
Andrew Sullivan blogs my sentiments on the ramped up “air-strike” effort in Iraq and against the U.S. armed ISIS (no that is NOT an accusation, rather a “puerae de armis”) precisely because Slick Hilly, McCain and Grahamnesty cannot be trusted with ANY war-making power they will certainly abuse
Meanwhile Obama informs the hoi polloi that the new NEW Iraqi “Premier” is welcomed by the U.S. and that even though we are committed to “humanitarian” efforts, merely dropping bombs on ISIL will not make them go away. Gee, where have I heard that before?
Surprise, surprise, taxpayer, OBEY your federal taxing authority and pay for the public education of the entire known universe’s children, citizen! Obama’s DOE issues edict that all our new, lice infested illegal alien immigrant children MUST be educated at each state’s expense as the Overlords dictate
The Constitution’s “importation” clause is contained in Article 9 of the Constitution which contains enumerated limitations of the Federal Government. I am exploring the genesis of the 1808 (twenty years) sunset and if it was targeted solely at importing slaves in the Prep Better section of this site (Founders Pass membership req’d). “The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.”IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE? You betcha. Members of the United States Senate WANT the President to be the House where bills raising revenue originate? THIS is an example of what the impeachment power was meant to deal with (although a censure can do similar things). The wicked policy of global integration and deadly intervention will prove to be anathema to republics of the future including the ones that will be borne of the impending breakup of the American Union.
America, Have it YOUR way, ALWAYS. We have all been witness to a spoiled brat yuppie demeaning the hourly employees at any popular retailer or restaurant because “the customer is always right”. Now this extends to Catholic churches where remaining REVERENT in the presence of God has given way to being the attention center in God’s house. Witness any Novus Ordo Mass’s “let us show each other a sign of peace” which devolves into a kissing, waving and “brotherly love” fest the hippie pagans at Woodstock couldn’t even pull off.
Liberty The God That Failed, now has Libertarians conceding that Liberty cannot actually be their God by proposing a “libertarian case for a “Basic Income Guarantee”.
The stupidity of the sanction war against Russia by the U.S. and the equally imbecilic EU now bites poor Polish farmers in the butt as Russia bans Polish produce from importation. PROOF that what Ron Paul warned of has come to fruition: sanctions only punish the poor and are acts of economic war

Let’s just review an important statistic this morning: the top 20 WEALTHIEST countries on earth (UN-2012). Look at the attached graphic and excluding the United States, note what things most of the countries on this list have in common. 1. They are small and the scale of representation is in-line; they are NOT known as military powers and they are not known as interventionists in other country’s affairs….hmmmmm….. is there a message here for the titanic, bloated menace that is the United States today?
Obama: “The…’merican people don’t want me…..just standin’ around….waitin’ for Congress to do something”. The American people don’t grant you your power, the Constitution does and it REQUIRES YOU to “stand around” and wait for Congress to act so you can either A. sign & execute or B. veto
More Pulitzer prize winning work from Brandon Darby at breitbart.com, our man on the Southern Border reports that the entire planet seems to have gotten the memo that the United States is open for hauling in our welfare state “safety nets” whomever makes to the U.S. / Mexico border
This long and sordid history of the State of California’s 19th century actions against Chinese immigrants paints a very solid picture of the “alien friends” doctrine I have been talking about now for the last 3 months. Note that California acted as a sovereign entity and imposed her own taxes on Chinese immigrants to dissuade them
Glenn Greenwald via Edward Snowden: Obama and the U.S. government are in cahoots with Israel on most everything they do militarily including military planning and targetingImaginative Conservative: Congratulations new Roman disciples of Nero, the persecution and quest to squash Christianity and Christians is alive and vibrant yet again. The same refutation the pagans suffered last time is set to repeat itself because there is but One Truth.
Brits decide to create, then publicly fund, an “online sperm bank” for lesbians only. In what can only be described by me as the plan to rid the British Isles of pesky men we now learn that it is only the science of biology that matters in creating families,. not mothers (they are temporarily needed) and NO fathers need apply.
Why is the FDA persecuting into closure the oldest cigar rolling factory in the USA? Save Cigar City campaign needs your help and the FDA needs to be abolished, again
SMOKE THIS! If the FDA cigar regulations go into effect, every handmade cigar sold in the U.S. will be “regulated” just like cigarettes, will have to undergo scientific testing, will be subject to new taxes and will not be allowed into the free-market unless approved by FDA. This will shutter the US cigar/tobacconist industries and make brans like my el Rey Dude Corona cigar a thing of the past.
Michael Scheuer unloads on the “Israel Firsters” who have corrupted the US political process by their willing into existence a conflict with jihadi extremists we had no attachment to
George Will thinks the National Legislature has the power to compel every county in the U.S. to adopt 20 illegal alien children, educate, feed and clothe them and “make them Americans”. I would like to ask the foundational question, citing what Constitutional power does Mr Will believe Mordor has such authority? Ilana Mercer has some thoughts on “Robbing Peter to pay Pedro”
Remember all those “Get Putin” demands from last week, because Putin MUST have been behind the downing of MH17, he’s Putin after all? Well the evidence is mounting that it was a Ukrainin military jet that did the shooting and there are eyewitnesses to back up the story

If you have taken my [r]epublican Challenge #1 (for Fathers) then you probably have a good handle on what to do when confronted with situations that can easily lead into violent, parental, episodes. This FL dad confronted one such episode and dealt with it heroically (yay) only to use the event to a gain a shameful advantage.

Did you know that in 1865, 7,000 Confederation citizens sailed to Brazil and set up a community there and are STILL there today? Hmmmm, maybe there IS still a place to seek refuge from Obama’s Leviathan
Today’s Latin Phrase of the Day: “Et Libertas set pectus purim et fermium gestate; alias res obnoxiosae note in obscura latent.” Liberty is having a pure and dauntless heart; all else is slavery and hidden darkness
