Rank #1: Episode 183: Citizenship and the 14th Amendment

Podcast cover

https://mcclanahanacademy.com https://brionmcclanahan.com/support http://learntruehistory.com

Donald Trump is the most important political figure of the early 21st century. No one else has been able to turn the political discussion on a dime like Trump, and that discussion quickly turned to immigration and the 14th Amendment on October 30, just days after everyone was talking about political violence. Not anymore. But can Trump end birthright citizenship with an executive order, and is birthright citizenship codified by the 14th Amendment? No and no, and I discuss both issues in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

Facebook is now "Fact Checking" posts. This is bad news for a variety of reasons, but maybe most embarrassingly because they are using a former CNN reporter to do the fact checking. What could go wrong with that, particularly when they are "fact checking" the civil war [sic]. I hit this issue head on in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

Heavy metal music was invented by Western Civilization. I know to some people this might be sacrilege, but it's true.

Is incorporation settled law? More importantly, what does the "Establishment Clause" contained in the First Amendment mean? And could/can States have state established churches? These are big questions. One candidate for a Wisconsin State court position believes that the States did have the ability to establish a religion--he is correct. He then backtracked when attacked by his leftist opponent. At the same time, the SCOTUS is deliberating on the "Establishment Clause" and will issue a ruling in the coming months on this issue. I discuss all of this in a listener generated Think Locally, Act Locally free-for-fall.

Glenn Beck relies too much on David Barton. How do I know this? His latest event, Restoring the Covenant on the Sacred Land of Gettysburg, is just pure Lincolnian myth making and New England fantasy at its finest. This presents all kinds of problems for American conservatives. In fact, it is more dangerous long term than American progressivism.  If American conservatism is defined by Beck's "Restoring the Covenant," then American conservatism is dead. I explain in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

Professor Steele Brand wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post arguing that Roman History should be the savoir of America.

COVID-19 is racist. Don't believe me? Just look at how the new Left is responding to the virus and government action to tame the pandemic. If you use "Chinese Virus" you are racist. Because the virus has affected the black American community in larger numbers than white Americans, any talk about reopening the economy is "racist." And because Steve Bannon and other "Traditionalist" figures have claimed this will be the end to globalism, you guessed it, the virus is racist.

But this raises an interesting question: Can tradition be an ism? No, and I talk about why in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

Episode 304: Trump is the Law?

Podcast cover
Read more

Donald Trump has declared "I am the Law!" Judge Dredd is back in town.  At least he said this for about 24 hours, but even what backpedaling, he  said governors must respect his authority. What has happened to the  American presidency, and more importantly, is Trump correct? No, he  isn't, but Trump is a symptom of the disease and the infatuation with  the American civic religion, i.e. politics. I discuss in this episode of  The Brion McClanahan Show.

Episode 303: The Bomb

Podcast cover
Read more

Did the United States end World War II in Japan by dropping two atomic weapons? That has long been the contention, but beginning in 1969, scholars have challenged that position. A fairly recent book by Ward Wilson suggests the bomb had nothing to do with ending the War and was unnecessary. I discuss this position in a COVID-19 free episode. We need more normal.

Great look at history

Insightful and detached from "happy history" as well as "gloom history".

Intro music is the key

Good intro music. Though I would not enjoy it in church, it works for this guy.
