Description

We take the best ideas from the best minds and distill them down to five focused minutes. We then add graphics and animation to create the most persuasive, entertaining, and educational case possible for the values that have made America and the West the source of so much liberty and wealth. These values are Judeo-Christian at their core and include the concepts of freedom of speech, a free press, free markets and a strong military to protect and project those values.

The Ferguson Lie

The Ferguson Lie

Most people think they know what happened in Ferguson, MO on August 9, 2014. Most people are wrong. Radio host and author Larry Elder presents a factual account of what really happened on that fateful day.
What would America look like if the Left got everything it wanted? What would America look like if the Right got everything it wanted? PragerU’s Will Witt fleshes out each of these scenarios in this provocative thought-experiment. The results might surprise you.
In the years following the Civil War, Booker T. Washington devoted his life to helping blacks transition out of slavery and into freedom. While his ideas were never fully embraced in his time, today, more than a century later, they remain strikingly relevant. Derryck Green from Project 21 explains.
The 2020 graduating class faces challenges unlike any class before it. Uncertainty looms at every turn: job prospects, social interactions, and many other aspects of “normal life” once taken for granted. So what lessons can be learned from this unparalleled situation? Dennis Prager offers three.
Nearly every American knows the phrase “separation of church and state.” Do you know where it's from? Here’s a hint: it’s not in the Constitution. John Eastman, professor of law at Chapman University, explains how and why this famous phrase has played such an outsized role in American life and law.

Others have made the ultimate sacrifice so that you could be free. Remember them—today, and always. A moving tribute, written and narrated by former Navy Seal and author Jocko Willink.
Why would someone like Sebastian Cevallos, a university student in Ecuador, care about Israel? You'd think this tiny country on the other side of the globe from where he lives would have no bearing on his life. But it does. Here’s why.
You’ll see a lot of references to justice in the Bible, but you’ll never see the word “social” precede it. Why? Is it simply because social justice is a new cause that post dates the Bible? Or is it because social justice, by its very nature, is directly at odds with justice as the Bible defines it? Allie Beth Stuckey, host of Relatable on BlazeTV, takes a fresh look at this important issue.

Do you feel forced to keep your values to yourself? Are you afraid to speak up about your views and opinions for fear of creating family tension or losing your friends—or your job? Dave Rubin calls this being in the political closet—and it’s time to come out.
Activist groups claim a biased criminal justice system has put too many people behind bars. The solution, they say, is to drastically cut the prison population. Even now, some states are using the coronavirus pandemic to double down on granting early release to thousands of prisoners. Rafael Mangual, Deputy Director of Legal Policy at the Manhattan Institute, urges caution: most people are in prison for a good reason.
Environmentalists are certain conservatives don’t care about clean air and clean water; that they’re happy to trade the planet for profit. Is it true? Do conservatives really care more about green pockets than green forests? Michael Knowles offers a much-needed new perspective.
Everyone knows the basics of the American Revolution: thirteen North American colonies revolted against British rule and won their independence. But there’s much more to the story: the American Revolution, of all revolutions, was a game-changer for the entire world. How so? And most importantly, why? Renowned historian Allen Guelzo explains.
What does it mean to be tolerant? The dictionary defines tolerance as respecting others' opinions, especially those you disagree with. But in our polarized cultural climate, it’s come to mean something else entirely. Greg Koukl, president of Stand to Reason, sorts it all out.
Why can’t America’s healthcare system be more like Canada’s? Here’s a better question: why would you want it to be? French-Canadian entrepreneur Alain Lambert has first-hand experience with both Canada's and America's healthcare systems, and he offers some cautionary tales. Canadian-style healthcare might not be as good for your health as you think.
Why are young people so unhappy and so anxious about their future? Healthcare professionals and social scientists round the usual suspects: drug addiction, social media, cyberbullying and a host of other problems. But do you see something important missing from this list? Dennis Prager does.
Is Voter Fraud Real?

Is Voter Fraud Real?

2020-02-2405:1711

What is the greatest threat to free and fair elections in America? Here’s a hint: it’s not Russia, or any other foreign power. It’s not a person, either. It’s something much more subtle, and much more dangerous. Investigative reporter Eric Eggers has the answer.
Why the West Won

Why the West Won

2020-02-1705:187

For the past few centuries, Western Civilization has dominated the world both culturally and economically. Why? Some point to imperialism, slavery, and colonial wars. But those sins are common to all empires throughout history. What separates the West from the rest? Stanford historian Niall Ferguson has the answer in this highly informative video.
Why does the world of dating seem so complicated? Lauren Chen, host of Pseudo-Intellectual on Blaze TV, offers some useful navigational tools. It starts with this basic question: what is the purpose of dating? The answer may shock you.
It’s time for free-market capitalism to reclaim its legacy as a creator of prosperity — not just for citizens of the Western world, but for people everywhere. It’s not capitalism that has to justify itself; it’s everything else. Why? Because everything else has resulted only in poverty. Does that surprise you? Are you skeptical? Andy Puzder, author of “The Capitalist Comeback,” has the charts and data to prove it.
The Star-Spangled Banner, long a treasured symbol of national unity, has suddenly become "one of the most racist, pro-slavery songs" in American culture. Why is this happening? And more importantly, is it true? USA Today columnist James Robbins explores the history of the song and its author to answer these questions.

They have their own ideas. They also have a lot of experts and valid info. Everything else is so biased towards the left and this is why this is so out there. You don't have to agree with everything they say, but it is important to educate yourself on both sides. Listen and take from it what you will. Even if you disagree with their world view there is surley still valuable logic and information to gain. It is good to challenge they way you think in order to expand your mind and reevaluate what you think you know. Thank you Prager U for being truthful and open, not being afraid to defend America that our fathers fought so hard to preserve.

I really don't think all these people that are screaming for "free health care" know that they actually have to pay for it.

What if I told you US tricked USSR to attack Afghanistan and then made afghans that were at the time had a peaceful and beautiful country pay so much fighting hard against USSR to make the soviets weak. And then the US backs AlQaede against soviets and when this monster makes 9/11 blames it on the whole muslim world and then goes to war in Afghanistan to "make peace"

I love this podcast. They turn pressing complex issues into a more simple form.

Even if you're a conservative, PragerU has the least conservative atmosphere over all conservative media outlets. They praise Rockefeller - a notable ugenicsist and an associate of Hitler, they generally favor big pharma and vaccines, and overall tend to have civic-nationalist neocon viewpoints. The content is mostly geared towards children (and I'm not being condescending - the content really is watered down), so there's a small chance you'd learn anything new if you are generally familiar with politics. I overall don't recommend PragerU, and rather recommend Vox Day, a very intelligent renaissance man who shares valuable knowledge almost daily. He's also a critic of right-wing neocons or nonsense philosophers, so sometimes you'll have to watch with an open mind. But while his content is much longer than PragerU's, it's so much more valuable and politically conservative.
