Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, my daily roundup of stories that are used in making the Mike Church Show. CNN has succeeded in making a Super Bowl sized spectacle of the “Democratic Debate” that is to take place tonight in Las Vegas, NV. The network has created an atmosphere that includes Sheryl Crow concerts and Dumbocrat “fan experiences”. This is Panem et circunses (bread and circenses) on steroids and only holds out the prospect that our already radical autonomous politics will be come more selfish if that is possible. “The last chapter has been concerned with the contention that orthodoxy is not only (as is often urged) the only safe guardian of morality or order, but is also the only logical guardian of liberty, innovation and advance. If we wish to pull down the prosperous oppressor we cannot do it with the new doctrine of human perfectibility; we can do it with the old doctrine of Original Sin. If we want to uproot inherent cruelties or lift up lost populations we cannot do it with the scientific theory that matter precedes mind; we can do it with the supernatural theory that mind precedes matter. If we wish specially to awaken people to social vigilance and tireless pursuit of practise, we cannot help it much by insisting on the Immanent God and the Inner Light: for these are at best reasons for contentment; we can help it much by insisting on the transcendent God and the flying and escaping gleam; for that means divine discontent.“ – G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

Slick Hilly Discovers Private Property, Uses It To Demand Trump Stop Owning It – Demagoguery has always been Mrs Clinton’s forte and she served up T-Rex sized piles of it yesterday, staging a “rally” for the poor, not-unionized yet EMPLOYED at Trump Casino Las Vegas demanding that Trump workers “say no ” to their employer. The fact that Trump has actually created a job and met a payroll never occurs to Hillary because Trump and his ilk are only useful when checks are being written for campaign contributions.
Jim Webb May Have The Answer To Slick Hilly – A Former Secretary of the Navy, former U.S. Senator and opponent of Mrs Clinton’s debacle in Iraq, Webb will provide a reality check to Hillary’s attempt to frame her actual record as somehow not instructive on the future.
You Can’t Fix Stupid So Why Do “We” Insist on Trying? – 1 day after I discussed a taxpayer revolt over compulsory “public education” funding citing the ubiquitous pall that shrouds the matter, now comes this proposition: Put public education out of its misery already! “Finally, perhaps we should consider it child neglect if a 12-year-old does not possess certain skills, such as basic arithmetic or being able to read a 200-page book, write a short essay, and answer a civics quiz. These are simple demands. But if they were applied today, the politicians and bureaucrats who are responsible for schools would almost all be locked up in prison.”
The GOP Grasps at Straw It Helped Create – The emergence of Paul Ryan as the last man standing who can take the reigns of power from John Boehner despite the fact that Ryan doesn’t want the gig and is wholly unsuited to the task, continues to show the chaotic state of affairs that the fake “conservatives” have built with the faux devotion to the unprincipled. W. James Antle III pleads with Ryan “Don’t do it, Paul Ryan! It’s a trap!”
Were There Martyrs At Umpqua College? Christian Realists Say Yes, Judgement Porn Addicts: What’s a Martyr? – This minister thinks so and I concur with his propositions and conclusions but as usual, if you want to see how any decent, published, writing is handled by the heretic-slob, apostasy drenched public, read the comment section and bring a body condom, you’ll need it.
Father May NOT Know Best – The alleged, non-existent “doctrine” of Papal infallibility is getting an expected clobbering at the Synod of The Family in Rome. As this story reports, if Pope Francis even attempts to alter 2,000 year old Moral teaching on marriage, his office requires that he should be prevented from the error (note I insert “MUST” for “should”). This now public revolt being staged by the Cardinals cited in the story is just the beginning of that rebuke. Leave it to the Poles & Archbishop Gadecki to get this right. “In fact, such an admission [by the Synod/Pope] would open the door to all the persons who are in mortal sin to receive Holy Communion; in consequence this would cancel the Sacrament of Penance and would debase the importance of living in sanctifying grace. Finally, it needs to be reaffirmed that the Church cannot accept the so-called law of graduality or the gradual path. As Pope Francis reminded us, those of us gathered here do not want and do not have any power to change the doctrine of the Church.”
Columbus Day banned in 9 more cities as the cleansing of the REAL mission of Columbus, establishing new Christian lands claimed for Christ, rolls on. Pope Leo XIII may have been the last public figure to publicly attempt to halt the undeserved scandal and dedicated this encyclical to the matter. “At each disembarkation he offered up prayers to Almighty God, nor did he take possession save “in the Name of Jesus Christ.” Upon whatsoever shores he might be driven, his first act was to set upon the shore the standard of the holy Cross: and the name of the Divine Redeemer, which he had so often sung on the open sea to the sound of the murmuring waves, he conferred upon the new islands. Thus at Hispaniola he began to build from the ruins of the temple, and all popular celebrations were preceded by the most sacred ceremonies.”
American “Culture” is The Real “Walking Dead” – The ‘Murican obsession with zombies is a base obsession with our failure to defend and live the good, the true and the beautiful, so we’re stuck with the undead. “Interestingly, we have a generation of kids who attend schools where they are taught the lie that violence never solves anything and where they will be suspended for fighting back when a bully punches them. Yet on Sunday night they cheer a show that celebrates heroes who ruthlessly make gory headshot after gory headshot.”
Trumpzilla Makes Common Sense…AGAIN – They can say what they like about the less than seasoned “political experience” that Donald Trump may
Get Ready For The “Miss Me Yet?” Speaker Boehner Nostalgia Campaign – Ross Douthat points out, as I pointed out on Friday last, that there is chaos in the House of Representin’ because the conservative “backbenchers” are only good at one thing: revolt. You can’t run a political body like Congress with revolt as your incentive unless you think the lethal French Revolution Congress’s were models of democracy.
Dear Leader to Putin: If you think that conducting bombing campaigns across a mid-east country is a sign of leadership, that only works when Americans do it. “We are prepared to work both diplomatically and where we can to support moderate opposition that can help convince the Russians and Iranians to put pressure on Assad for a transition…But … what we are not going to do is to try to reinsert ourselves in a military campaign inside of Syria.” Obama also correctly shot down inserting 200,000 American troops into Libya as “bad” strategy.
Dear Leader To GOP Wannabe Dear Leaders: It’s a dumb idea to send 200,000 troops into another ground campaign in the Middle East. “And if in fact the only measure is for us to send another 100,000 or 200,000 troops into Syria or back into Iraq, or perhaps into Libya, or perhaps into Yemen, and our goal somehow is that we are now going to be, not just the police, but the governors of this region. That would be a bad strategy Steve. And I think that if we make that mistake again, then shame on us.”
Buchanan: The Culture that created “Saw” and “Sniper” can’t seem to make the connection between their morbid entertainment choices and the morbid cultural results.
Gennifer Flowers Strikes Back – Bubba Clinton’s legendary concubine tells radio host and author Aaron Klein that Slick Hilly running a campaign that promotes her stand for women’s rights “is a joke”. But the REAL BOMBSHELL is that Flowers claims to be alive because she has dirt on Bill locked up “in a safety deposit box that they know I have”.
The Devil Made Them Do It – The number of child abuse cases involving exorcisms and the occult has doubled, year over year in the U.K.. What would people expect to happen when the Divine Lord and his moral teaching has been formally kicked out of public affairs and homosexuality ushered in?
STATEMENT: HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE REQUIRES SECESSION FROM OBERGEFELL – “Any decision that brings about such evils would be questionable. One lacking anything remotely resembling a warrant in the text, logic, structure, or original understanding of the Constitution must be judged anti-constitutional and illegitimate. Obergefell should be declared to be such, and treated as such, by the other branches of government and by citizens of the United States.” Thus says a panel of legal and constitutional scholars. Though the constitutional points are correct, the civil disobedience is an act in keeping with Faith and Moral Teaching.
YOUNG MALES NEED DADS SO THEY DON’T GO SERIAL KILLER, GUESS WHAT, SO DO ELEPHANTS – This 60 minutes piece tells the story of murderous, berserk elephants who just happen to be young and ALL happen to be male. Hmmmm, now where have I heard this story before!?
When You Say Pass The Cheese, There Is a Lot More Going On Then You Think. So sayeth Chesterton. “In each inn they had nothing but bread and cheese; nor can I imagine why a man should want more than bread and cheese, if he can get enough of it. Now, it is just here that true poetic civilization differs from that paltry and mechanical civilization that holds us all in bondage. Bad customs are universal and rigid, like modern militarism. Good customs are universal and varied, like native chivalry and self-defence. Both the good and the bad civilization cover us as with a canopy, and protect us from all that is outside. But a good civilization spreads over us freely like a tree, varying and yielding because it is alive. A bad civilization stands up and sticks out above us like an umbrella – artificial, mathematical in shape; not merely universal, but uniform. So it is with the contrast between the substances that vary and the substances that are the same wherever they penetrate.”
That Damon Linker, Secularist At Large, Guy Is At It Again! – This time Linker can see no harm in passing laws to allow CA doctor’s to kill their patients and for patients and their soon to be heirs, to ASK the doctors to kill them. Obviously Linker has not had an intimate encounter with the Miracle amendment lately which makes anything Ant’ny Kennedy can dream of possible. Linker’s “not gonn’ happen” argument essentially includes people offing themselves because they had a bad string of luck, are tired of suffering psoriasis or maybe just broke their hand bones while punching brick walls after losing the family homestead at the casino and can’t deal with the “depression.” The point is exactly that this law was proposed not for the people it will allegedly “benefit” but for the barrier it demolishes between the culture of death and straw and stick dam that is holding it back.
WHY LEPANTO MATTERS – 444 Years Ago Pope Pius V fought FOR Christianity’s survival AND its moral theology, yesterday Pope Francis led a “Synod” that is prepping an official surrender on the same teachings defended at LePanto
MOST SHEOPLE WORK FOR “THE MAN” YET THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN DREAM PERSISTS – One of the hallmarks of a truly free society is the presence of “vocation” as the principle method of raising sustenance. We call this “entrepreneurship” these days, removing from it the practice the familial basis for its existence and trading it for the pure acquisition of wealth. Charles Hugh Smith reflects on this writing. “If we add all these categories up (7 million + 5.1 million + 2.4 million), about 14.5 million people likely qualify as self-employed middle class (or upper-middle class). It’s a considerable number, but it’s only 10 percent of the nation’s work force and 4.6 percent of the nation’s 316 million people. If working for yourself and achieving a middle class income is the American Dream, we might want to take a hard look at why a mere 10 percent of the work force has reached this goal.”
Rand Paul, Michael Brendan Dougherty and Great Minds That Think Alike – I won’t personally apply this paragraph’s titular conclusion but MBD’s analysis of the struggling Rand Paul campaign comport nicely with your humble host’s which can be read here. MBD, also concludes that Senator Paul DOES still have a shot at the nomination but only if he can survive until the field is 1/2 the size it is today.
REAL MEN CRY AND CARRY GUNS – Chris Mintz went back into the community college site of last week’s massacre and was shot 5 times in the melee but somehow survived. Mintz resistsed the social media inspired urge to go “beta-male”, run and hide but instead was willing to lay his life down for his friends…. a high honor indeed.
The NY Times Publishes “27 Ways to Be a Modern Man”, 25 of which will make you a modern Metrosexual…”Man” is a stretch.
Patrick J Buchanan: Follows up There is a REAL danger in devotion to ‘Muricah’s “Moral Imperialism” with “A No-Fly Zone in Syria is an act of War. “If America’s elites continue to assert their right to intervene in the internal affairs of nations, to make them conform to a U.S. ideal of what is a good society and legitimate government, then we are headed for endless conflict. And, one day, this will inevitably result in war, as more and more nations resist America’s moral imperialism.” Buchanan doesn’t even touch upon the ridiculous assertion that this union of states, home to the planet’s largest prison population; 55 million of its babies murdered by their parent[s]; and facing an epidemic of judgement porn killings perpetrated by a young male population that only has the time to fornicate but not the time for the marriage and fatherhood that should produce. I suggest we try some Moral Imperialism in our own communities first and when that is successful, maybe then we can tackle the states… the American states, that is.
OH HAPPY DAY! I KILLED MY BABY AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD! Anyone who has “..like, an incredibly positive experience” while having Planned Parenthood murder their soon to be born child via abortion and is still walking the streets to pro-create and then kill again, is a menace to civilization, yet that is the latest “rage” at the online home for the fallen: Buzz Feed. I refuse to link to the piece because these people need prayers, not clicks or comments. Here is a sample…“Hi guys! Like a year ago I had an abortion at the Planned Parenthood on Madison Ave, and I remember this experience with a nearly inexpressible level of gratitude. I would tell you all about the exceptional level of care I received from every single woman at the clinic on that day….”. The worst part if the woman who made this diabolical claim “Amelia Bonow” no longer has this post on her Twitter page, every repost of it I can find is an image file (not text) and she is now wearing a mask like she’s in the Prayer Protection Program. This looks like Planned Parenthood propaganda to me making it as evil as the original thought of “shouting abortions”.
GALILEO WAS WRONG, BACK TO SCHOOL MUST HEAR RADIO! – Today’s Special Guest, Robert Sungenis, gives us a 90 minute long presentation on WHY Galileo Was Wrong, the ground-breaking film series that finally challenges the “settled science” of Heliocentrism that never was confirmed. “Galileo Was Wrong reveals in spectacular graphics and painstaking research that the true scientific evidence not only puts Earth in a central location in the universe, but shows that it enjoys the unique privilege of being the only motionless body around which everything else revolves.” Listen to the 70 minute recap of this presentation and soon to come video with the all new Founders Pass Media Player
Darwin Was Wrong Pt I – Chris Ferrara reveals the story of a Jesuit monk who was actually making genetic discoveries in the physical world and not using the fallacious “hypothetical” that the sorcerer Charles Darwin used to explain “evolution”.
