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.

According to TMZ, President Trump is Now Homophobic

Maybe TMZ should stick to covering which sports star is bedding which Kardashian this week, and leave the politics to the professionals.

If you’re looking for a lesson in character assassination, the mainstream media is a willing and powerful mentor. This “infotainment” industry has been clawing at the door, so to speak, when it comes to Donald Trump’s personal beliefs.  They’ve imbued every syllable ever spoken by the President on the subject of immigration with some form of racist connotation, in an attempt to flood the media landscape with doubt and anger. It’s fear mongering, no doubt, but in a world dominated by social media’s “resistance” schtick, this is the sort of anger-fuel that sells. TMZ is no stranger to this, making their bread and butter by proposing scandalous and salacious rumors about The Kardashians for years.  Now, as they move into politics, (something no one asked for), they are bringing the same tabloid terror to the proceedings. For instance, they’ve already assumed that President Trump will let his alleged inner homophobic thoughts loose should he go head to head with 2020 democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg. Monday on “TMZ Live” founder Harvey Levin asked South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, what he will do when President Donald Trump “absolutely, no doubt” makes homophobia part of his campaign against Buttigieg if he secures the Democratic nomination. Levin said, “If you end up going head to head with Donald Trump, you are an openly gay man and I have absolutely no doubt in my mind given Donald Trump’s history that the campaign will get homophobic in some way. How are you going to deal with that? Buttigieg answered, “I’m kinda used to that by now. I’m from Indiana. I’m gay as a—I don’t know, think of something really gay, and that is how gay I am. So I’m used to bullying.” There has been no evidence presented of this hateful personality trait…

Hollywood Icon Contends that Mueller Could Still “Put Trump Away”

Robert De Niro is in Denial.

While the nation awaits a clearer picture of what’s actually inside of Robert Mueller’s infamous report on the “RussiaGate” scandal, prominent democrats are keeping their dreams of nullifying the 2016 election alive. Mueller’s report was already summarized once by Attorney General Bill Barr in a four page letter to Congress.  Barr, quoting Mueller himself, indicated that the report did not find sufficient evidence of “conspiracy or coordination” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government – something that President Trump and his team have taken as a victory in the case. The democrats have insisted that they need to see the full report in order to validate Barr’s assessment, with many believing that the President himself is not out of harm’s way just yet. Now, their pals in Hollywood are promoting a similar idea. Actor Robert De Niro revealed in a recent interview that he still thinks that former special counsel Robert Mueller can send President Donald Trump to prison for a “long time.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert De Niro thinks it’s his “civic duty” to play Mueller on Saturday Night Live, and still fantasizes about him locking Trump up. “I consider it my civic duty to do that part — just to be there because [Mueller] doesn’t say much, but he doesn’t have to. It’s that simple,” said the star, who added that he still has hopes of the president serving jailtime for suspected collusion with Russia in the 2016 election. “I might even be happier the day that Mueller puts him in handcuffs, takes him in an orange jumpsuit and puts him away for a long time.” De Niro has been an outspoken and colorful critic of President Trump, having used profanity and threats of violence toward the Commander in Chief over the course of the…
