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.

Nestride Yumga experienced real corruption and civil rights abuses in Africa. Then she came to America, the land of opportunity, education, and freedom. So when Black Lives Matter protests declared America guilty of systemic racism and injustice, she knew she had to defend her adoptive country.
Are wind, solar, and batteries the magical solutions to all our energy needs? Or do they come with too high a price? Mark Mills, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, analyzes the true cost — both economic and environmental — of so-called green energy.
What Happened on 9/11

What Happened on 9/11

2020-09-0704:581

9/11 shocked America and changed the course of modern history. Everyone knows what happened on that day…right? The truth is, many young people don’t, but they need to. CJ Pearson explains why.
Are the police friend or foe? Are they necessary to preserve order, or are they unnecessarily intrusive? Do they have society’s best interest in mind, or are they racist and violent? Heather Mac Donald, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, analyzes the numbers behind these hot-topic questions.
California used to be the Golden State. Now the Blackout State might be more accurate, as the fear of wildfires forces public utilities to periodically power down. But wildfires have always been part of California’s history, so what’s changed? Radio talk show host John Kobylt’s answer to this burning question might surprise you.
It's Time to Grow Up

It's Time to Grow Up

We all know that there’s more to maturity than simply growing older. So what characteristics do you need to become a mature person? And why will that help you lead a better life? UCLA Medical School psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Marmer explains.
Do wind turbines and solar farms hold the keys to saving the environment? Michael Shellenberger, founder of Environmental Progress and noted climate activist, used to think so. Now he’s not so sure. He explains why in this important video.
Does College = Success?

Does College = Success?

2020-08-0404:515

Jeremy Boreing, co-founder of The Daily Wire, doesn’t have a college degree. Neither do Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, or a host of other innovators who have shaped our contemporary world. Which begs an important question: Is a college degree really necessary for success?
Psychologist and author Karlyn Borysenko wouldn’t be caught dead at a Trump rally. So what was she doing in a New Hampshire arena, surrounded by 11,000 cheering Trump supporters? And what did she take away from the experience? She explains what happened when perception met reality in this eye-opening video.
Most of us learned the key ideas of the Declaration of Independence in school: that "all men are created equal," "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights," that government's job is "to secure these rights." This was a radical departure from the way things had always been. Where did these revolutionary ideas come from? Ben Shapiro explains in this illuminating video.
What happens when politicians decide they are in a better position than business owners to know how much workers should be paid? We don't have to guess. Cities like Seattle and New York have already done so with their $15/hour minimum wage mandates. Simone Barron, a lifelong restaurant worker, recounts how "helping" her impacted her wallet, her career, and her life.
Are government schools really giving children the education they deserve? If you think the answer is “yes,” you haven't asked a parent with a child stuck in a bad school. Cecilia Iglesias, President of the Parent Union, knows first-hand that our education system is in deep trouble.

In the years following the Civil War, Booker T. Washington devoted his life to helping blacks transition out of slavery and into freedom. While his ideas were never fully embraced in his time, today, more than a century later, they remain strikingly relevant. Derryck Green from Project 21 explains.
The 2020 graduating class faces challenges unlike any class before it. Uncertainty looms at every turn: job prospects, social interactions, and many other aspects of “normal life” once taken for granted. So what lessons can be learned from this unparalleled situation? Dennis Prager offers three.
Nearly every American knows the phrase “separation of church and state.” Do you know where it's from? Here’s a hint: it’s not in the Constitution. John Eastman, professor of law at Chapman University, explains how and why this famous phrase has played such an outsized role in American life and law.

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.

I really don't think all these people that are screaming for "free health care" know that they actually have to pay for it.

What if I told you US tricked USSR to attack Afghanistan and then made afghans that were at the time had a peaceful and beautiful country pay so much fighting hard against USSR to make the soviets weak. And then the US backs AlQaede against soviets and when this monster makes 9/11 blames it on the whole muslim world and then goes to war in Afghanistan to "make peace"
