Become a Member of McClanahan Academy

The Politically Incorrect Gateway to a REAL History Education McClanahan Academy courses sandblast away the years of rust, corrosion, and brain-rot produced by mainstream history curriculum. My courses challenge conventional wisdom and modern group-think. They are for the strong minded, curious student who wants a real history education untarnished by establishment academics.

Podcast Episode 208: Just Blame Calhoun

When something is wrong, just blame Calhoun. That is what anyone with half a brain decides to do. It doesn’t matter if you are on the “left” or the “right,” Calhoun is the root of all American evil. This is a cartoonish narrative that unfortunately gets used too often. I take apart a recent attempt by a “conservative” in this episode of The Brion McClanahan …more

Podcast Episode 207: What’s Wrong with Education in America?

What’s wrong with education in America? It sure isn’t money. It sure isn’t a lack of teachers or people trying to teach in higher education, but that is what the Left would have you to believe. The problem is indoctrination and stupid majors that should not exist. The progs break it and then have the “solutions” to fix it. I rip the progressive “educators” to …more

Podcast Episode 206: What the SOU Should Have Said

Trump delivered the State of the Union address to a group of spoiled teenagers last night. He said some good things, but as usual, the address had little substance and was heavy on slogans and platitudes. I give you a SOU that we all should applaud, that is all adults should applaud.

Podcast Episode 205: Progressives NEED to Control the Federal Bench

Progressives need to control the federal bench, which is why they are so worried about “RGB” as I like to mix up the letters. Very 90s. Regardless, they worry that the bogeyman Federalist Society will have more input in selecting judicial appointments. Will the Federalist Society change the direction of the United States? Nope. I tell you why in this episode of The Brion McClanahan …more

Podcast Episode 202: Academics are the Worst

It has become a fairly standard procedure to bash the academy. There’s a reason for that. The academy is a cesspool that doesn’t meet its stated mission, namely to produce people able to think critically and independently. That is the point. Most academics don’t want students who think critically and independently. Why? Because most academics can’t do this themselves. They want minions, not thinking students. …more

Podcast Episode 200: Trump’s Emergency Powers

Does Donald Trump have emergency powers to build the wall? This is an important legal question, but one with a simple (but unpopular for many people) answer: No. If we are going to say the Constitution needs to be upheld, then we need to be consistent. I discuss my thoughts on Trump’s wall, the Republicans, and presidential “emergency powers” in this episode of The Brion …more

Podcast Episode 199: Carlson vs. Shapiro

Tucker Carlson gave perhaps the most important political television monologue of early 2019 last week in response to Mitt Romney’s op-ed critical of Donald Trump. It was bold, meaty, and it ticked off establishment Republicans like Ben Shapiro. That’s why it was great. I discuss both the monologue and Shapiro’s response in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
