VIDEO: Prager University Releases Epic Video About Alexander Hamilton and His Impact on America

Great viewing for all Americans.

Published

American history is stuffed with amazing men and women who through their impeccable character, hard work, dedication to principle, and boldness to stand up for what’s right, have shaped this country into the best nation the world has ever seen.

One such individual is Alexander Hamilton, who just happens to be the subject of a brand spanking new video put out by Prager U’s YouTube channel. In the video, attorney, writer, and historian Joseph Tartakovsky chats about Hamilton and the impact he had on America.

“It would be only a slight exaggeration to say that Alexander Hamilton invented the United States of America,” Tartakovsky explains. “George Washington was the guiding star; Thomas Jefferson, the visionary; and Benjamin Franklin, the sage. But Hamilton was the pragmatist, the man who got it done. This most self-made of self-made men took a country with no past and planned its future.”

Tartakovsky explaines that, unlike many other Founding Fathers who grew up in “tidy New England villages or cosseted on baronial Virginia estates,” Hamilton grew up on the island of Nevis in the Caribbean, but it was not a paradise. Abandoned and orphaned as a teenager, Hamilton became an abolitionist after observing the brutal realities of the slave trade on the island.

“He soon took a job as clerk for a local merchant,” Tartakovsky says. “Before long, he was running the business—coordinating shipments of mules and codfish, calculating currency exchanges, and advising sea captains on how to deal with pirates. It was an unmatchable apprenticeship in trade, credit, and commerce.”

He moved to New York to attend Columbia University in 1773, but soon joined the Continental Army to fight in the American War of Independence. Gaining the trust of General George Washington, he quickly became a trusted staff officer.

His true impact would come after the war, when the newly elected President Washington appointed him to the cabinet.

It’s becoming more and more critical for Americans to take an interest in learning about their history, which includes diving deep into the life and times of its greatest citizens.

Only by examining life and liberty through the lens of these individuals can we hope to gain a true understanding of just how important the Constitution is to the protection of our freedom and why it’s so essential to make sure we keep government as small as possible.

Director Spike Lee Says Some Black Americans ‘Will Drink Orange Kool-Aid’ And Vote For Trump In November

Published

on

Infamous director Spike Lee is no stranger to making controversial statements, particularly when it comes to the issue of race relations, a reputation he’s not only well earned, but one that he continues to establish with his latest comments about black people who vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming election. Lee calls the support of Trump by black Americans to be “drinking the orange Kool-Aid,” which one can suppose he considers to be a rather clever little combination of pop culture statements. Apparently, if you have dark skin, you aren’t allowed to think for yourself and decide who you want to vote for based on what your own political beliefs happen to be. Instead, you need to forego your identity as an individual and cast your ballot as a member of the hive mind that is the modern-day Democratic Party. And yet, conservatives are considered the racist ones? Here’s more on this from the Washington Examiner: Lee is working on a new movie about the Vietnam War that features a character who is a black Trump supporter. “My co-writer Ken Wilmott and I to put some tension in the group. These four brothers who grew up, who fought side-by-side in the Vietnam War and are coming back 40 some years later,” Lee explained. “So everybody can’t be — everybody went off after they came back from the war, so people went their different ways and … I would like to add, played by the great actor Delroy Lindo, he really makes you understand why he’s wearing that hat, and you have sympathy for him.” Well, now. That film is no doubt going to be a fair and balanced portrayal of both the Vietnam War and what black Trump supporters are really like, right? Wrong. It’s a propaganda piece. That…

‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Willie Robertson’s Home Sprayed With Bullets From Drive-By Shooting

Published

Willie Robertson, one of the star’s of “Duck Dynasty,” recently came out and stated that his family had become the victims of a drive-by shooting on Friday. Eight-to-ten shots were fired from the main road into his estate in the town of West Monroe, Louisiana. One of the bullets entered through the bedroom window of the home where his son, John Luke Robertson, lives with his wife Mary Kate and their infant child. Fortunately, no one in the home was injured by the shots that were fired. Here’s more on this from Yahoo News: “We were pretty shook up,” Robertson said in a Sunday interview with USA TODAY Network. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.” The property and houses on it are behind a fence and gate and located far off of the road. No arrests have been made. Robertson said multiple witnesses saw the truck in which the suspects were riding pass by the property at least once before firing the shots at 2:33 p.m. local time. Robertson went on to note this happened in broad daylight. According to Robertson, many members of the Robertson clan are currently living at his estate during the coronavirus outbreak, his daughter Sadie Robertson and her husband Christian among them. “Nobody was outside at the time, but everybody had been out about five minutes before,” Robertson told the media. “I had just gone to the store when it happened.” Witnesses said the vehicle involved in the shooting as a Ford F-250, white over brown in color, with big aftermarket tires and rims. The driver was described as a young, white male in his teens or early 20s. There were other individuals in the vehicle as well. Surveillance cameras captured the vehicle on video. Authorities are asking for anyone…
