The Reverend Martin Luther King

CNN: SOCIALISM IS COOL!

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

CNN might have surpassed MSNBC as the dumbest media outlet on the planet. This is how CNN commemorated Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday:

CNN

– He’s an environmental hero

– He was a socialist before it was cool

– He never let a political disagreement turn nasty

Many Americans have turned MLK into a safe holiday mascot, but some say King still speaks in ways that go beyond civil rights. 

King had some serous faults. But, unlike CNN, he wasn’t an idiot. I am pretty sure that if King had witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union, the fall of the Iron Curtain, the decline of Cuba, the renaissance of Eastern Europe, the bizarre disaster of North Korea, the ongoing tragedy in Venezuela, where people have eaten their pets, zoos have been raided for food, currency is so debased that it is scarcely worth printing, infants die in hospitals and children leave home so they can improve their diets by foraging in dumpsters, he would have been smart enough to realize that socialism is the worst disaster ever inflicted on the human race. Unlike CNN, which after all of this, tells us that socialism is “cool.”

Democrats Selling Fascism in America

Over the past nine years somewhere around 20,000,000 ‘colored’ uneducated,  mostly male folks from fascistic and corrupt countries have been illegally maneuvered  by racist Americans to invade  our nation for the sole purpose of establishing Fascism Forever for a godless, truthless  “Soviet” future.

Poverty stricken Nancy Pelosis and Charles Schumers have led the invasion selling the feminist god that  one sex fits  all.   Their major propagandists thus far are feminist educator fascists, feminist black racist fascists, the Democrat Party, and the American news industry from the Wall Street Journal to the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times to the Washington Post,  one-half of America’s  Presbytries, 60% of American leftist Jewry from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

…..and then there is the often too  lonely, truth teller, Dennis Prager, the major  political disciple preaching  Truth and  Freedom  of our time.

I first met Preacher Prager via radio late October 2004, election time when Truth foreigner, the  model scum bag deviate, John F. Kerry was selling his version of  “new society” America……(the male version of crooked Hillary for those of you who have never heard of this John).

This radio Dennis guy that day was working up a storm,  the more he “sculpted” this John, the more powerful his voice, more certain clip, the louder his solo.   Clothes, actually “empty clothes”, no better yet,  “empty” suit” began to dominate Dennis Prager’s vocabulary……beautifully, so accurately, so poetically  no dart could ever hit its target more perfectly.     John F. Kerry no longer wore any clothes at all once Prager Truth rang out.

Today, Our Dennis got to talking about America’s news industry, the one 99% Truth Free fascistic one now running television, journal and newspaper these days of established feminist Obamaland politics.

A name, Jim Acosta of USA’s fascistic press, came to exercise Prager mind as if stoking a fire with a gallon of gasoline.     Prager’s  Acosta thought soared to a “preachment”  in a nanasecond, so  completely filled with truth and harmony, I felt I wanted to stand, salute my living room American flag and sing our National Anthem.

Dennis is in second place among Great Americans these days, perhaps first as a preacher, and then as a citizen……but, if Truth is to be told…..

Only OUR DONALD stands at the country’s top, at last a President heroically seeking, advancing, defending TRUTH  that GOD- FEARING AMERICANS WHO LOVE KNOWLEDGE, FREEDOM,  AND  HONESTY  SO CRAVE FOR!

 

A Request from Prager World

We Are Suing YouTube for Censoring Our Videos

Dear Valued Subscriber,

As you know, PragerU’s videos are available on a number of platforms, one of which is YouTube. And as you may also know, YouTube has chosen repeatedly to restrict some of our videos for violating their “Community Guidelines.”  Those guidelines are meant to protect users against viewing sexual content, violent or graphic content, and hate speech.

As a PragerU viewer, you know as well as I do that our videos contain nothing even remotely close to any of these categories.

To date, YouTube has restricted nearly 40 PragerU videos, addressing topics ranging from religion and freedom of speech to the history of the Korean War.

More than a year ago, we filed a complaint with YouTube, hoping that there was some kind of innocent mistake.

That’s when we were told by YouTube that after reviewing our videos, they determined that they were, indeed, “not appropriate for a younger audience.” Of course, we have this in writing.

Think about the millions of actually inappropriate videos on YouTube, and then ask yourself, “Why is our content restricted?”

Unfortunately, the answer is rather obvious, isn’t it?  YouTube has restricted PragerU videos for only one reason: ideological discrimination.

Of course, YouTube is owned by Google, which was founded to, ironically, “Organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.”

YouTube has made some of our most important videos inaccessible to the very audience PragerU seeks to reach: young people.

Let me be clear: they don’t like what we teach, and so they intend to stop us from teaching it. This kind of censorship is what we have seen on college campuses for years. But it is far more dangerous in this circumstance, because the internet is where the world goes to get informed.

Can you imagine if the left owned the internet the way they own our universities?

Can you imagine what the world would look like if Google is allowed to continue to arbitrarily censor ideas they simply don’t agree with?

Well, this is why Prager University filed suit against YouTube and Google. We are not fighting this only for PragerU—we are taking this on for America and possibly the world.

Can we count on your support as we fight to end the censorship of our conservative ideas by Google/YouTube?

Now, I have to tell you … this was not an easy decision.

Over the summer, former Governor of California, Pete Wilson — who has been a longtime supporter of PragerU — approached us and posited the idea: “We have to sue them,” he said. “Google is hubris.”

Those words weighed heavy on our entire team as we considered our options.

Obviously, a fight with Google will be hugely difficult and costly, and we hate the idea of deploying energy and resources away from producing more content and reaching new audiences.  We simply cannot do that.

So, before taking any such action, we decided we’d attempt a more diplomatic approach one last time. On the one-year anniversary of Google blocking our content, or the “BANniversary,” as we had come to call it, we renewed our complaints to YouTube, and re-circulated an online petition urging Google to change course. Many articles have been written, and many people, including many very prominent and influential people, rallied in support of our cause. To date, well over a quarter-of-a-million people have added their names to our petition.

What was the result of our efforts?

Nothing. YouTube ignored us. In fact, they have since restricted 11 more PragerU videos.

With our hands tied, we knew Governor Wilson was right—Google’s hubris had to be challenged.

So, we have built an all-star legal team, including Governor Wilson’s law firm, Eric George, Alan Dershowitz, Barak Lurie, Kelly Shackelford, Mat Staver, and more.

It’s an impressive group, because this is an important case; not only for PragerU, but for the fundamental American right to freedom of speech.

But this is not going to be easy and it isn’t going to be cheap.

Despite the fact that our amazing attorneys have agreed to reasonably cap their legal fees, there will be additional personnel, research, marketing and public relations costs to PragerU.

This case will be tried in the court of public opinion as much as in the courtroom, and we intend to win in both venues.

However, we cannot deplete our operating budget to fight this case. Thanks to you, PragerU has reached more than 1-out-of-4 Americans on the internet. Sixty-three percent of them are under 34. We plan to continue to focus on this growth and reach 3 out of 4 Americans. We can’t let up now.

We are fully committed to the lawsuit but we won’t let them slow the growth of PragerU.

This is why our board of directors and many staff members have donated, in addition to our annual gift, to what we are calling the “YouTube Action Fund.” Dennis Prager, Allen Estrin, and I have all given extra this year.

Now, here is how you can help:

  1. Please go to our website and sign the petition against YouTube censorship. It already has over 400,000 signatures; please add yours if you haven’t done so already, and ask 10 of your friends to do the same.
  2. More importantly, please contribute to our action fund if you can, over and above your planned support for PragerU. Our initial goal for the legal fund is $1 million, and we think we can reach that goal with your help.

Many of you have already given so generously and I am embarrassed to ask for more. But if you think this fight is important please support us in whatever way you can.

It seems like a lot to ask…until you consider how much we have to lose.

Perhaps Goliath could teach Google a little bit about where hubris leads … when a David comes slinging.

Thank you, and God bless you.

Marissa Streit
CEO, PragerU

“The Rational Bible: Exodus” Now Available

I’m Back. Here’s Where I’ve Been.

Dennis Prager’s new book, “The Rational Bible: Exodus” is available on Amazon.

by Dennis Prager at Townhall:

“I won’t make any assumptions about how many readers noticed I took a three-month break from column writing.

Nevertheless, I want to explain why.

I needed the time to finish the first volume of the biggest project of my life as a writer, a commentary on the first five books of the Bible, or what are called the Torah in Hebrew.

The commentary is addressed to people of every faith and, especially, to people of no faith.

I have believed all my life that the primary crisis in America and the West is the abandonment of Judeo-Christian values, or, one might say, the dismissal of the Bible. Virtually everyone on the left thinks America would be better off as a secular nation. And virtually all conservative intellectuals don’t think it matters. How many intellectuals study the Bible and teach it to their children?

And yet, from the time long before the United States became a country until well into the 1950s, the Bible was not only the most widely read book in America; it was the primary vehicle by which each generation passed on morality and wisdom to the next generation.

Since that time, we have gone from a Bible-based society to a Bible-ignorant one; from the Bible being the Greatest Book to the Bible being an irrelevant book. Ask your college-age child, niece, nephew or grandchild to identify Cain and Abel, the Tower of Babel or the ten plagues. Get ready for some blank stares. I recently asked some college graduates (none of whom were Jewish) to name the four Gospels. None could.

But what we have today is worse than ignorance of the Bible. It is contempt for it. Just about anyone who quotes the Bible, let alone says it is the source of his or her values, is essentially regarded as a simpleton who is anti-science, anti-intellectual and sexist.

Our society, one of whose mottos is “In God We Trust,” is becoming as godless as Western Europe — and, consequently, as morally confused and unwise as Europe. Just as most professors regard most Bible believers as foolish, I have more or less the same view of most college professors in the liberal arts. When I hear that someone has a Ph.D. in sociology, anthropology, political science or English, let alone women’s studies or gender studies, I assume that he or she is morally confused and bereft of wisdom. Some are not, of course. But they constitute a small minority.

Whenever teenagers call my radio show or I meet one in person, I can usually identify — almost immediately — the ones who are receiving a religion-based education. They are far more likely to act mature and have more wisdom than their Bible-free peers.

One of our two greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln, rarely attended church, but he read the Bible daily. As he said while president, “In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, I believe the Bible is the best gift God has given to man.”

Were he able to observe America today, Lincoln would be shocked by many things. But none would shock him as much as the widespread ignorance of and contempt for the Bible.

I have taught the Torah, from the Hebrew original, for 40 years. Of the many things I have been blessed to be able to do — from hosting a national radio show to conducting orchestras — teaching Torah is my favorite.

When asked how it has affected my life, I often note that in my early 20s, when I was working through issues I had with my parents, there was nevertheless not a week during which I did not call them. And there was one reason for this: I believe that God commanded us to “Honor your father and your mother.”

In my commentary, I point out that while the Torah commands us to love our neighbor, love God and love strangers, it never commands us to love our parents. It was sophisticated enough to recognize that love of parents may be impossible but showing honor to a parent is a behavioral choice.

In America, there is an epidemic of children who no longer talk one or both of their parents. In a few cases, this is warranted. But in most cases, adult children are inflicting terrible, unfair pain upon their parent. This is one of a myriad of examples where believing in a God-based text is transformative. Secular callers tell me that they hardly need the Ten Commandments to desist from murdering anyone. That may well be true. But apparently, a lot of people could use the Ten Commandments to avoid inflicting terrible pain on (admittedly, flawed) parents.

The title of my work is “The Rational Bible” because my vehicle to God and the Bible is reason. If you have ever wondered why all of America’s founders revered the Bible, let alone why anyone today might do so, this book should provide an explanation. My ultimate aim is to help make the Bible America’s book once again…”

Rip off at the Wall Street Journal

The HATE TRUMP WALL STREET JOURNAL

I haven’t monkeyed with the Stock Market since its collapse in 2007 I think it was.   I have never liked things Wall Street.  It’s a world that doesn’t give a damn about cultural freedom, private enterprise, and   free people.   It has destroyed much of our American middle class by destroying free enterprise by selling global profits for the rich.

In my lifetime where I lived here in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, Negro Americans in the North, if not  the segregated South, owned  nearly all of the corner shoe shops, grocery stores, tailor shops, liquor stores, bakeries,  bars, barber shops, dime stores, and such in the communities where they lived.  (I’m not sure about drugstores!)

Big Business’s “private enterprise” of corporate America destroyed all of that by  the 1990s.

Children had mothers and fathers.   Nearly every family went to Church on Sundays! ……..and no one cursed in school or in public!   (Until about 1950 ladies usually wore spiffy clothing and hats with veils when they went downtown to shop.)

Big Business,  Big Left, and Big University destroyed all of that by the turn of the century.  Americans got fatter big time, slobbier of dress and language, and more ignorant of knowledge ever since.   Feminism and fascism began to replace Americana……and more recently black racism and California’s Sanctuary State.

During this collapse of America the civilized, I became a Reagan Republican after a quarter century of voting and volunteering for the once  civilized Hubert Humphrey Democrat Party.   Being male, not female, I was and still am, a devotee of freedom, truth,  free enterprise, and especially  schooling based upon seeking truth through knowledge, a concept quite obtuse among today’s fascist Dem feminists.

Newspapers began to fall apart both in truth-telling, number of independents,  and size.   As in Communist Soviet Union, leftists infiltrated to sell their poisons.  In our Trump time, communication in our America is overwhelmingly One Party Leftism led by the overwhelming majority of Democrats and about only 2/3rds of the Wall Street Journal editors……Collectively, they all hate Our America’s 45th President, Donald J. Trump.

A human creep, noted leftist Michael Wolff of pen and greed, “was allowed to lurk around the White House for something like six months, presumably because someone in the first days of Donald Trump’s administration thought he would write a sympathetic account.”…….according to Barton Swaim in his Bookshelf article, “The Hour of the Wolff” in today’s Wall Street Journal.  He writes, “in one sense, Fire and Fury is a typical piece of “access journalism” as it’s known, like many titles by Bob Woodward or, on the more gossipy side, like the “Game Change” books by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.   Mr. Wolff takes the genre to another level, and perhaps a lower level.  If he has employed objective criteria for deciding what to include or exclude, it’s no clear what those criteria are.  By  the looks of it, he included any story, so long as it was juicy.  We’re told, for instance, of Mr. Trump’s  supposed method of bedding other men’s wives in his prepresidential days…..” and so on……

Swaim repeats the lists of garbage Wolff scatters like Spring seed to remind Trump haters the lists of evils the President is supposed to have committed ala the Jeb Bush family and others.

I started reading newspapers that June of the Battle of Midway.   I was seriously dyslexic, but back then no one knew what that was.  I couldn’t read novels beyond two paragraphs, but  I could already read newspapers, especially the war headlines, maps, photos,  cutlines and even articles of the St. Paul Pioneer Press  Sunday  rotogravure sections covering the war.   I remember  bombing my toy ships with my Christmas present  B-24  in the our  half acre Victory Garden across the alley I was in charge of.  Two cousins had  already joined the Navy.   I knew they were in the Pacific front somewhere.

After the war when I entered college,  I learned that President Roosevelt had enjoyed the comfort of a mistress rather than with Eleanor, the mother of his several children.  He and she were wealthy, very wealthy, and from New York.  In April of 1945, he died in her arms….or something close to that…as it was never announced for public interest until decades later.   Apparently, among the Roosevelt class, Democrat and Republican, except for Hollywood folks as today,  such male behavior was taboo.  Only very, very wealthy, usually well known gals, would fly off to Reno for a divorce.

Where I lived in St. Paul  from age two in  1936 to 1954, of the 28 families living on both sides  of the street, all but two households had children still at home….about 30 altogether.   Twenty eight  were practicing Christian families;  two Jewish.

No one swore in public.   No one swore beyond “darn” whether at home or in public.   (I went to a mixed white-Negro high school from grade nine to graduation as a senior.  Swearing in public was unheard of at that school or on its grounds.

Folks respected a concept of God, of goodness, then.   We lived in  a neighborhood.

Barton Swaim’s article would never have hit the streets including  the news stands.

Republicans, news folks of any Party, a reporter from any newspaper,  couldn’t, didn’t bribe Franklin Delano Roosevelt or anyone else for “infidelities”.   The country was “God-fearing” then.

To what length did Republicans attack John F. Kennedy for this weekly sessions with Mafioso females for “pain relief”?   And he was civilized unlike so many, if not all Democrats in Congress today!

Dennis Abandoned in New York City Yesterday

Dennis wound up isolated in New York City yesterday.   One inch of windy snowfall canceled his presentation   before he landed in town making him sans something to do and said so during his first two hours of radio labor.

I think he is often at his best when forced to philosophize, imagine, forced into problem solving.   After all the human male animal is programmed to problem solve.

I have been aware of Dennis for fourteen years.   I have never called his program’s 877-243-7776 until yesterday,  this snowy in New York City day.  He had initiated a discussion about righteousness.   He is for it of course, hoping, as so many of us Godfearing souls still do in American life today that it will not disappear from the face of the  Earth as it seems to be doing in our America lately…..

He noted that President Donald J. Trump, is a human being  and therefore not  perfect.  (He didn’t discuss any of  the thousands of conditions and variations of crime recent Presidential candidate, Hillary R. Clinton had practiced throughout her forty year political career selling herself).

Yet, this politically  flawed Donald J. Trump has, in less than one year, managed to solve or cause an inevitable  solution to a number of critical issues on his way to “Make America Great Again”….as he had promised….perhaps the best ten months of such success a neophyte American president has ever achieved.

Dennis was critical of the Never Trump folks who to this day will not acknowledge our 45th president’s stunning achievements…..because the President carries flaws…such as language and occasional exaggerations, and hair arrangement.  (He has been divorced twice….oh my!)

We should mention here,  that 75% of the American conservative Christian voting population backed Our Donald to defeat “Crooked” Hillary in 2016…..and contrary to America’s Democrat Party and CNN, MSNBC fascist claims today….Mr. Trump is ‘hugely’ brainy,  loves his country, its  freedoms, dreams and opportunities.

We live in an America today, however,  where the kings and queens running university and school preach the horrendous lie there is no difference between the human male animal and human female animal.

The human male animal has been and still is….born, programmed by  Nature’s God,  to be a killer, a defender, a problem solver, a builder, to invent, be curious, to explore, to challenge, to sire…..to fight for survival to protect his kin, his mate, his tribe, his country…….because by Nature, his is driven to protect his brood for the survival of the species.

All major Gods worshiped  by mankind are male, always male.   Why?

He, not she, is programmed and built  to protect his mate and  offspring, his community  in the singular and in war for the survival of the species.  Despite the call of today’s “butches” and feminazis at college and their Democrat Party propagandists , the human female animal is not built a carbon copy of the human male animal.

The she of the human animal is driven by feelings, to seek comfort, security, safety for the survival of her and her species flesh and blood.    Seeking TRUTH is not a primary goal in her life…..Her FEELINGS bury her curiosity.  She seeks “home”, not to build, but be secure and attractive in……..

Only in a dictatorship has she been  found ‘building’ a “Boulder Dam”, supposedly as  equal to ‘man’……in Stalin’s Soviet Union…and that was according to  the Soviet Press.

My phone call was disconnected at the source.
