Podcast Episode 374: Tommy Lee’s Yankee Imperialism

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee said he’s going to leave the country if Trump is re-elected in 2020. He also shared a post suggesting the “payback” Trump supporters are going to receive should Biden win in the same election. No one really cares where Tommy Lee lives, but his support for a cultural imperialistic post takes us to the Yankee problem in America. I discuss …more

Podcast Episode 373: Why Progressives Really Fear Judge Barrett

Progressives on the left and right have tried to stop Amy Coney Barrett’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Why? Because they know that every pieces of sacred cow legislation they worship is unconstitutional. This is the natural result of centralization, and I talk about what is really at stake with her appointment in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

Podcast Episode 372: Remembering Lee

Today marks the 150th anniversary of Robert E. Lee’s death. Just about three weeks after he surrendered at Appomattox, a reporter from the New York Herald sat down and interviewed Lee about the War, secession, and Lincoln. Lee was the embodiment of reconciliation. This is why the left wants to tear him down. I discuss this important interview in this episode of The Brion McClanahan …more

Podcast Episode 371: Pence v. Harris

The candidates for Vice President have “debated,” and I think there is a clear winner and clear loser. We all lose, but Pence did a better job than Harris on virtually every issue. He missed opportunities to stick it to the authoritarian at the other table, but Pence did what Trump couldn’t do: hold it together and make salient points about the positives of the …more

Podcast Episode 370: No Monarchy

Less than two weeks after the Framers signed the Constitution in 1787, Pennsylvanian Tench Coxe published a series of essays in defense of the new document. The first was aimed at critics of the new office of president. They thought it would create an elected monarchy (they were right) but Coxe thought otherwise. In light of the election year, it’s worth dusting off Coxe’s essay …more

Podcast Episode 369: To Divide or Not To Divide

Americans want less divided government. A new Gallup poll shows that more Americans support one party control of the federal government than at any time in recent history. Why? Power. This is the clear result of Lincolnian nationalism. It needs a correction.

Podcast Episode 368: Trump v. Biden Round 1

I watched the “debate” so you didn’t have it. No one who did watch it came away thinking that it was either man’s best performance, but I thought it better to focus on the stupidity of the entire process. Welcome to how the presidency screwed up America.

Podcast Episode 367: Trump’s Effort to Save History

As I’ve said on this show, who knew that the 2020 presidential election would be a referendum on American history? This is a logical extension of the culture war that Pat Buchanan warned about in the 1990s (and that began in the 1960s) and has fully reached the executive office. Trump has consistently insisted on a reconciliationist message, one that does not fit with the …more

Podcast Episode 366: Best SCOTUS Justices?

I have been asked several times: Who are the best justices in Supreme Court history? There haven’t been many to write home about, but I give you a few that deserve our respect in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

Podcast Episode 365: Originalists and Anti-Federalists

What is “originalism” and what does it have to do with the “Anti-Federalists”? More importantly, if we believe in originalism, does that immediately rule out judicial activism? How does this affect the Supreme Court and federal court system? I discuss all of these issues in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
