Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the day to day activity of the Constitution AND Articles of Confederation and how they were framed in the summers of 1776 and then 1787. The season for the “sunshine patriot” is upon us an we have all angles on “patriotism” and the latest “border wars” covered for you. 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. “Mammon has no more zealous worshipper than your true Yankee. His homage is not merely that of the lip, or of the knee ; it is an entire prostration of the heart ; the devotion of all powers, bodily and mental, to the service of the idol. He views the world but as one vast exchange, on which he is impelled, both by principle and interest, to over-reach his neighbours if he can. The thought of business is never absent from his mind. To him there is no enjoyment without traffic. He travels snail-like, with his shop or his counting-house on his back, and, like other hawkers, is always ready to open his budget of little private interests for discussion or amusement. The only respite he enjoys from the consideration of his own affairs, is the time he is pleased to bestow on prying into yours.” – Thomas Hamilton, Men & Manners in America, 1834 (book details in the “Prep Better” section for Founders Pass Members below.

Promoters of Scottish Independence PROVE life with the UK Leviathan isn’t all gumdrops & rainbows opponents of Independence try and make it out to be
Bigotry aimed at Southern Institutions wins yet another round as Washington & Lee University chooses public funds and the “acceptable” views of the ruling, media elite over their own institution’s namesake. (the university caved into the demands of some black students that Lee’s chapel be stripped of the Confederate flag Lee toiled under). The severing of history from the present REMOVES the historical links between Robert E Lee & the university.
Columnist: The Federal Leviathan is performing so pathetically in most of the tasks it has commandeered that today’s liberal yews, might grow up as “conservatives” and choose community action over government coercion
Hurricane Katrina: A natural weather phenomena that visited its wrath on LA, AL, MA and FL after which President Bush was derided for not “caring” enough. Border Storm 2014: A man-made catastrophe where American citizens are being sold into bondage to pay for the survival of foreigners with no rightful claim on same. In BOTH cases Presidents were blamed and in both instances federal grants of power via the judiciary are actually to blame
Today’s Special Guest Dr. Kevin Gutzman’s essay on American Exceptionalism is worthy of your consideration and evangelization. As I tried to point out on Independence Day, for which I was derided as “an America hater”, to wit:
CNN attempts to jerk tears from its audience with stories like THIS of one Central American family that entered illegally 8 years ago THEN “sent” for their 7 & 9 year old children to “join” them in California.
DeceptiCONS Strike Back, rebrand themselves as “ReformiCIONS”: The crowd that brought us the “intellectual underpinnings” for the war in Iraq have chosen Yuval Levin et al, author, as their new standard bearer for “conservatism” when no one has bothered to ask why the Bill Kristol types should be choosing ANY leader unless it is the leader of a foreign power we wish to attempt its own “exceptional”, global campaign.
“Each is an intellectual prodigy in his 30s, and together they have become the leaders of a small band of reform conservatives, sometimes called reform icons.”
Would you like your American Exceptionalism shaken or stirred? Pew Research Center polling shows that even among GOP’ers, the “USA!USA! crowd is dwindling in size and they link that to “patriotism”
But the hedonists at MTV beg to differ. All that is needed to be “patriotic” is to believe inn American ideals like the ubiquitous “equality” and “fairness” doctrine our yews pine on endlessly about without ever considering the consequences or alternatives (thinking critically about it). Worst of all, the pagans at MTV claim our wayward yews are “redefining patriotism”. At least the Romans, during their decline and conceit didn’t have media around to document the sure to be embarrassing marks on history our yewts are leaving.
DeceptiCONS Strike Back II: House GOP demand $3.3 MILLION to continue looking into “Benghazi coverup” while the border is overrun and our money supply is turning middle class citizens into paupers
DeceptiCONNED III: So the GOP machine used the ol’ “get out the DEMOCRAT” vote trick to throw Thad Cochran over the too against Chris McDaniel in a GOP primary runoff while there is evidence now of Dems voting illegally and some may have even been paid to vote (shockuh! right!?)
Gohmert: Either enforce the immigration law or the U.S. will become a “third world nation”. Hmmmm, maybe we already ARE a third world nation when you combine the immigrant drain with unproductive yewt generation of Millennials?
I was amused by the hysteria “we won” rhetoric coming from usual right wing suspects after the “Hobby Lobby” case was decided in “their/our” favor. This was compounded by the same people boasting of Hobby Lobby’s sterling record on paying for its employees contraception in 16 other ways!? This is a mortal sin that should be cheered by no one.
Still don’t believe my contention that political parties are NOT your friend or the “friend of liberty” they are thought to be by those living the political life? See the “economic impact” the 2016 GOP convention will supposedly have on Cleveland, OH. (obsessed with FaceBook & Twitter updates in quantities that dwarf this pages daily output and the printing presses at the Fed, you probably know a couple of them and should ask them to seek counseling or a physical activity like roofing.)
Q: Was the 14th Amendment ever ratified? A: No, and Forrest MacDonald has the proof.

Thomas Hamilton’s “Men and Manners In America” is a good read to get a glimpse of what 19th century writers were saying about the Yankee spirit that was consuming the political affairs of northern Americans, a spirit that was seized on in Lincoln’s war and ultimately became our “exceptionalism”
NEW – If you wonder why I refuse to deviate from the opposition to our bellicose foreign policy and all that it conjures up, read this most important essay about the effects of “War, Power and Supremacy” Here’s an excerpt. “Except for the inhabitants of certain former states of the Confederacy, particu- larly Virginia, Tennessee, and Georgia, Americans have no experience at the other end of the process of radicalization. They have not suffered the fate of having been demonized, followed by savage in- vasion where no quarter is given, commu- nities laid waste—and that succeeded by a period of occupation replete with the usual antics of unscrupulous exploita- tion and further brutalizing acts. Lacking such a historical memory, finding it easy to dismiss the Southern experience, and, furthermore, being inclined by nature and education to discount history in general, Americans lack both the internalized ex- perience of the vanquished and the incli- nation to suspect a political establish- ment that promotes such barbarism as a new principle of global supremacy.”
NEW – Don’ t take anyone else’s word for what happened in the Federal Convention of 1787, read it for yourself in this online version of Farrand’s Records of the Federal Convention of 1787-Volume I

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. No, it isn’t a paradox, it is the study of how inertia in public affairs is almost always missing when “change” is lusted for

Norfolk, Nebraska 4th of July parade float that depicted Obama’s library as an outhouse is derided ads “racist” by local Dems. Only the perpetually outraged crowd could mistake political satire for racism or maybe, CONVERT satire t0 racism. Any fan of political cartoons should see the “bathroom humor” for what it is but then again….
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
