Dobbs and New York Rifle

The 14th Amendment is the gift that keeps on giving but more like HPV than a rich benefactor. In the last three days, the Supreme Court has either accepted or rejected using the 14th Amendment to radically remake America. And by radically remake America I mean the destruction of actual federalism. Conservatives are cheering for the New York State Rifle and Pistol decision and the …more

NASCAR and Woke America

I remember watching the Daytona 500 in February 2001. Any NASCAR fans knows what happened at the end of the race. Dale Earnhardt was killed in a nasty collision with the wall. Wells King at The American Conservative pegs that moment as the day NASCAR died. NASCAR went woke without the influence of The Intimidator around. Today, you can’t bring a Confederate flag into a …more

Joe Doesn’t Know History

A few weeks ago, “historian” Heather Cox Richardson traveled to the White House to interview our “historic” President, Joe Biden. Think about what this means for the history “profession.” Richardson is a prize winning historian at Boston College and a media celebrity. Why? Because she is an establishment leftist shill who spends her time dreaming up ways to make progressivism the core of the real …more

States Need to Stop Slopping at the Trough

My slogan “Think locally, act locally” has inspired a lot of people to get active in local government. That’s great, but some have figured out that the federal Leviathan has its teeth in just about every level of American society. That makes it difficult to break free from Washington D.C. But what if the solution was as simple as saying, “No.” I don’t mean refusing …more

A War Over the History of Slavery?

If you listen to the woke idiots on the left, you would think that no American has ever heard about slavery, or that they have been taught that slavery was a benevolent institution devoid of any “sin.” You see, if we just doubled down and taught more woke history, then America would be alright. I guess they missed the massively popular 12 Years a Slave, …more

National Democratic Party

In 1896, conservative Democrats bolted the part and formed a splinter party known as the National Democratic Party, or NDP. They produced a “campaign handbook” outlining their political principles, and they focused on real issues and constitutional restraint. How refreshing. They also nominated a truly “national” ticket for the time by selecting John Palmer for President and Simon Buckner for Vice-President. Palmer was a Union …more

You Wanna Publish a Conservative Book?

Book publishing isn’t an easy game. Most books never sell more than one thousand copies. Nonfiction is the most difficult market of all, and with the proliferation of self-publishing, everyone has a book. This isn’t a bad development. Many people have an idea they want to market and they work hard to do it. The recent brick and mortar book store apocalypse has made getting …more

The Neocon Value of Union

Glenn Ellmers wonders if America is too unified. This is a stunning confession. Ellmers is a disciple of Harry Jaffa. If you don’t know Jaffa, he long argued secession was illegal. Ellmers still thinks so, but if the other States agreed to boot out some of the red States, then perhaps secession could be constitutional. That would be the only way, however. This is a …more

Seidule and Twitter vs. Lee

If you were asked to choose a better judge of military acumen, General of the Army Dwight Eisenhower or Professor Emeritus at West Point General Ty Seidule, who would you pick? Your first response would probably be, “Who is Ty Seidule?” Followed by, “Is this even a real choice?” One man won World War II in Europe. The other played armchair general for most of …more

Podcast Episode 384: Low Information Voters

A recent piece at NewsBusters.org explains that when Biden voters were presented with more information about Uncle Joe, 17% said they would not have voted for him. That is huge and an important starting point for a discussion about the dangers of “democracy” and the corporate media. I explain in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
