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

Great viewing for all Americans.

Published

on

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.

Chris Cuomo Troubles Increase After Sexual Misconduct Allegations Surface

There doesn’t appear to be much upside for Chris Cuomo at the moment.

In a move that was surprisingly appropriate for CNN, Chris Cuomo’s employment has been terminated.

The network, which merely suspended one of its other contributors after he masturbated on a Zoom call with his colleagues, opened an investigation into allegations that Cuomo used his media resources to aid his brother, former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, as he grappled with approximately a dozen credible accusations of improper sexual behavior.

It is now being revealed that these siblings had a lot more in common than previously thought.

A former co-worker of Chris Cuomo made a sexual misconduct allegation against the former CNN anchor, who was fired Saturday for misleading the cable network about the extent of the role he played trying to mitigate the sexual harassment accusations that took down his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A well known employment lawyer who represents the accuser contacted CNN Wednesday to tell them of the allegation, according to The New York Times.

The incident did not occur within the CNN company.

The woman who leveled the unknown accusations against Chris Cuomo, 51, was a former “junior colleague” at another news network, according to Debra Katz, the accuser’s lawyer, the paper said. The allegation was reportedly not connected to the cascade of accusations that led Andrew Cuomo to resign from office in the face of impeachment four months ago.

The younger Cuomo had attempted to downplay his pre-termination suspension from CNN as “embarrassing” during an episode of his personal podcast last week.

CUOMO KAPUT! CNN Takes Bold Action After Anchor’s Unconscionable Behavior

CNN has had enough of their primetime star’s scurrilous behavior.

Published

on

The moral ambiguity of the mainstream media took a backseat this week, at least in one decision made by CNN, after primetime star Chris Cuomo was once again embroiled in an abhorrent scandal.

Cuomo, the younger brother of disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, had earlier been caught using his vast media resources in an effort to help the Empire State lawmaker plot a PR strategy to combat a scandal of his own:  Being credibly accused of sexually assaulting and harassing at least one dozen women, some of whom were employees of the governor at the time.

Now it has been revealed that the pundit also went so far as to contact some of his brother’s accusers, which was a step too far for CNN.

CNN has suspended prime time anchor Chris Cuomo “indefinitely, pending further evaluation,” after new documents revealed the cozy and improper nature of his relationship with aides to his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A second hour of “Anderson Cooper 360” aired in Cuomo’s place on Tuesday night. A town hall about Covid-19 will air Wednesday night.

Tuesday’s announcement about the suspension was the equivalent of a cable news shockwave. Cuomo’s 9 p.m. program is frequently CNN’s most-watched hour of the day. He is a larger-than-life presence at the network. And he was determined to stay on TV this year despite a flurry of sexual misconduct allegations against his brother, which culminated in the governor’s resignation three months ago.

The network did not mince their words.

“The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense,” a CNN spokesperson said Tuesday evening. “The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions.”
“When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly,” the spokesperson continued. “But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second.”
“However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew,” the spokesperson added. “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
There is no telling how long Cuomo could be sidelined, or if a return to CNN is even possible given what we know about the egregiousness of his actions.
