Who is the real enemy in the current political, social, and economic problems facing America today? Are the police to blame, or are they a symptom of a larger disease? And more importantly, what are the solutions to this disease? I discuss these issues, the history behind them, and more in Episode 34 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
Brion McClanahan: The Founding Fathers Guide to the Constitution
Rage Against the Machine “Know Your Enemy.”
Body Count “Cop Killer.”
Kemp Mill Records
Obama’s nationalization of the police.
Modern black separatism.
A listener generated episode. How could Murray Rothbard support Che Guevara? I discuss Rothbard, J. William Fulbright, the founding tradition of American nonintervention and federalism, and the stupid empire. Lots of material in less than 30 minutes.
The question is settled. Director Gary Ross has spoken and we are to all fall in line. Ross, director of the upcoming film The Free State of Jones, has released a video “debunking” four “myths” of the Civil War. There is one problem; Ross creates several myths in the process. learntruehistory.com
Great Britain secedes! What does this mean for Western Civilization and other secession movements, and how does Brexit compare to secession in the United States? Secession and self-determination are the political movements of the early 21st century. I discuss all of these issues in Episode 31 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
Who is the worst president in American history? That is a complicated question. It depends on how “worst” is measured. FDR is the most transformational president in American history, particularly in the 20th century, and that is no badge of honor. I discuss Roosevelt, the New Deal, and American political history on this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
What is the original meaning and intent of the Second Amendment? What is the “militia”? I discuss both issues along with the faulty doctrine of “incorporation” on Episode 29 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
How did Abraham Lincoln “screw up America” as I proposed in my newest book, 9 Presidents Who Screwed Up America? Simple. He continually and willfully violated his oath of office dozens of times as President, setting a dangerous precedent for those that followed. I discuss specific violations in detail.
What are the best books on the “War”? I am often asked this question, so I provide the answer along with some other nuggets. Hint: You won’t find these books on any modern graduate level seminar reading list. They aren’t PC or “fashionable.” That means they are good.
Avery Craven, The Coming of the Civil War
Ludwell Johnson, North Against South
Young people are an interesting bunch. Some have decided to support a crusty old socialist because he promises to “change” the economic system in America; others need safe spaces; still others have decided that they “don’t need” the government. Which group is correct? Find out in Episode 26.
There has been no greater destructive force in human history than the political left. I discuss why on Episode 25 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
