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.

Alyssa Milano Says If You Claim To Be Pro-Life And Support The Death Penalty, You Need To Zip It

This woman is woefully ignorant.

Published

There are a lot of annoying, ignorant leftists in Hollywood who constantly weigh in on political matters that they seem to either be woefully uninformed about or are just plain evil in their thinking. What actress Alyssa Milano said about pro-lifers who support the death penalty falls into both categories and only serves to make those of us who actually know what we’re talking about long for the days when the social media mute button comes to the real world. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: On Thursday night, actress and abortion champion Alyssa Milano, responding to the announcement that Attorney General William Barr had directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons to clear the way for the federal government to execute five inmates who are all convicted child murderers, snapped at one pro-life advocate, “You’ve lost the right to pull your, ‘pro-life’ narrative-talking-point-bullshit with me.” Milano’s remark followed Sen. Kamala Harris cavalierly disregarding the Second Amendment on Thursday, tweeting, “As president, I will give Congress 100 days to get their act together and pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they don’t, I will take executive action. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action.” As president, I will give Congress 100 days to get their act together and pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they don’t, I will take executive action. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action. — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) July 26, 2019 Milano responded, “No more complacency. This is what Obama should have done after Sandy Hook when 20 children and 6 adults were murdered violently. Thank you, @KamalaHarris. Thank you.” No more complacency.

Good News! Miley Cyrus Promises Not To Procreate Until Climate Change Is Solved

This woman’s brain is a bag of cats.

Published

One of the main problems with modern society is that all the stupid people in our culture continue to breed and then indoctrinate their children with their horrific, morally bankrupt worldview. Fortunately for all of us, actress and pop star Miley Cyrus has decided to forego procreating until someone finally steps up to the plate and does something to bring the crisis of climate change to an end. This is probably her best contribution to society at this point. via TheBlaze: In a recent interview with Elle, the former “Hannah Montana” actress said that she wants to wait to have children until said children could “live on an earth with fish in the water.” In addition to climate change and parenting, she also touched upon feminism and marriage. “When [Mother Earth] is angry, don’t f*** with her,” Cyrus warned. “That’s the way I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry.” “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women,” she insisted. “We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece of s**t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.” “We don’t want to reproduce because we know that the earth can’t handle it,” she added. Cyrus later went on to detail her marriage with Hemsworth. “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married,” she reasoned. “But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in…
