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.

Understanding Nixon

2021-09-1305:471

The Great Thomas Sowell

The Great Thomas Sowell

2021-07-2605:311

He’s an economist, an historian, a philosopher, and one of the greatest social theorists America has ever produced. His name is Thomas Sowell, and he might be the most important scholar you’ve never heard of. Jason Riley, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, tells his inspiring story.

As I've aged and look back on my 60+ years, I'm positive not having a father in the home had a massive effect on my life. Especially from age 12 to 30.

My grandmother came from a large, poor family. And they still shared what they had with traveling, poor, black people. Before she died she was a much better off than at the start of her life, but she still shared what she had no matter what the skin color. It's character and attitude that makes a person great not where or who they're born.

Women want more than equality . Like some are more equal than others ! Both men & women are responsible for the mess we have in society. Was it like it is today in early last century ? I think things were just fine. That is the culture I grew up admiring when I grew up in India ! Today I am thoroughly disappointed in general with American society. Look at some Elite lady politicians who I do not want to mention ! They are a disgrace to their peers !

So much for Freedom & Democracy in the country that gave almost everything in culture to the world ! I who am not a citizen but raised my children to appreciate everything good in America, am terribly disappointed in which direction America is headed. God bless America and protect it from all Evil ! The Amendments ? Which ?

Interesting comments by Mr. Paul Johnson . His advice to young people is good but he had to say one more thing ! Be disciplined in everything and everything will fall into place and the world will be a better place !

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.
