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. You can watch online, download the MP3, or use the Teachable App to …more

Nikki Haley Talks Secession

Nikki Haley is back in the news, of course not because she is newsworthy. Far from it. She is back in the news because she can’t stop flip flopping. A few weeks back, Haley failed to bow to the woke mob by omitting slavery as the “cause of the War.” To appease the masses, she went on Saturday Night Live and knelt before the altar …more

Texas v. Biden

Texas told the Biden administration to take a hike. But this isn’t “nullification”. Texas insists that the Biden administration enforce the laws of the United States. Biden has so far refused and instead retaliated by cutting off natural gas exports from Texas. In other words, Biden has chosen economic warfare against a State, the very definition of treason in the Constitution, to appease the hard …more

Democrats Don’t Understand the Constitution, Again

I could say that neither Party understands the Constitution. If Lincoln is your man, you are clearly constitutionally ignorant. But Democrats seem to foul it up the most. Take for example a recent proposed bill that would ban private “paramilitary” organizations. Two Democrats wrote the bill to clamp down on dangerous “right wing extremist” violence in America. When you finish laughing, keep reading. Ed Markey …more

Dem Dems were Slavers and Traitors!

It’s almost becoming tiresome. “Republicans were the Party of freedom and Democrats were the Party of slavery, Jim Crow, and treason!” Modern Republicans really think this tactic will earn more votes. They’ve been called the stupid party for a reason. I can just imagine a potential Democratic voter changing his mind while ruminating, “If I cast a vote for this Democrat, I’ll be voting for …more

Did the South Keep Lincoln Off the Ballot?

If you missed it, the Maine Secretary of State has decided to remove Donald Trump from the ballot in 2024. This followed the Colorado Supreme Court decision that did the same, though after Trump appealed the decision to the Supreme Court, the Colorado Secretary of State placed Trump back on the Republican primary ballot. The Supreme Court decided to hear the case today, as I …more

Will This Case Destroy the Tax Code?

I’m back. I hope everyone is ready for a great 2024 and that your year will be healthy, prosperous, happy, and fulfilling. We know our opponents don’t want any of that for us. Deplorables don’t deserve good things. Without question, this will be an interesting year, and perhaps one of the most “historical” in recent memory. The political theater surrounding the presidential election alone will …more

Thomas Jefferson, Conservative

Who is the real Thomas Jefferson? Historians have attempted to answer this question since “Sage of Monticello” died in 1826. Jefferson has been the symbol of nearly every political movement in America, even if he would have disagreed with their positions. He has been described as a radical, a progressive, a liberal, an agrarian, a populist, a libertarian, a conservative, a republican, and a federalist. …more

Texas Secession!

Secession may be on the ballot in Texas. At least it may be on the Republican primary ballot. Proponents of Texas Secession (TEXIT) have gathered close to 100,000 signatures on the issue, meaning the Republican Party may be forced to include it on the primary ballot, as per State law. This is a big development. For years, the Texas Republican Party has resisted a grassroots …more

Will This Case Destroy the Federal Government?

A paranoid leftist law professor worries that the Supreme Court will destroy the federal government. That is if a pending case is decided in the way he fears. You see, this professor thinks that originalist “cherry picking” of the Constitution is going to undermine the regulatory state. What will we do without the SEC, FDA, OSHA, or a host of other unconstitutional federal agencies? Who …more

An Activist Historian’s Bad Take on “Insurrection”

If you’ve been listening to my show or reading my emails for even a few weeks, you know I am very hard on establishment activists…historians. And for good reason. They are destroying both the “profession” and more importantly traditional America. Most of these “experts” make glaring mistakes on a regular basis. Their goal is never to understand. They want to wield history like a sword …more
