A lot of the history you learned in school is just flat-out wrong. In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I take apart one bad historian on nullification and explain why you need to rethink all of the history you think you know.

Don Jeffries calls them “court historians,” – establishment academics and scholars who perpetuate a version of history that supports the centralized, national state America has evolved into. Jeffries writes, “court historians have provided, and continue to provide, shameless disinformation to the minority of Americans who even read history books. Because of this, the average American is historically illiterate.”

I ran across one of these court historians earlier this week. Keith Hughes produced a video explaining nullification. Not only did he peddle the worn out false narrative of federal supremacy, he even got a basic historical fact wrong.

In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I take apart Hughes’ nullification video and use it as an example of why we can’t trust the history we learned in school.

Thankfully, in this day and age we don’t have to depend on the establishment for our education. You can learn the history they didn’t teach you in school in the comfort of your own home or car. Click HERE to learn more.
