YouTube continues to restrict many PragerU videos. Fight back!

290,178 signatures

SIGN THE PETITION

Conservative ideas are under attack.  YouTube does not want young people to hear conservative ideas as they currently list over 30 PragerU videos– over 15 percent of our entire collection–under “restricted mode” making it impossible for many young people to access our videos.
Many families enable restricted mode in order to keep inappropriate and objectionable adult and sexual content away from their children–not to prevent them from watching animated, age-appropriate, educational videos.
ADD YOUR NAME TO THIS PETITION, AND TELL YOUTUBE TO STOP BLOCKING PRAGERU VIDEOS.

Here’s a list of the over 30 videos we request YouTube remove immediately from restricted mode:

In response to an official complaint we filed, Google specialists defended their restriction of our videos by saying, “your videos aren’t appropriate for the younger audiences…”
There is no excuse for Google and YouTube censoring and restricting any PragerU videos, which are produced with the sole intent of educating people of all ages about America’s founding values.  We need your help to tell YouTube that their restriction of our videos is wrong.  Join the thousands of Americans who value the free exchange of ideas.
PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME TO THIS PETITION TO HELP US FREE THESE 30+ VIDEOS SO THAT EVERYONE CAN WATCH THEM.

Thankful

As a Christian, I appreciate the position that President Donald J. Trump takes relating to God. He isn’t afraid to be identified with God or His Son, Jesus Christ. There are many politicians in Washington who would like nothing better than for our nation to become a godless, secular society where the government is the “All-in-all,” and people look to government for everything instead of looking to God. President Trump said in a great speech yesterday, “In America, we don’t worship government — we worship God.” Thank you, Mr. President!

Trump’s Many Accomplishments So Far

written by Jim Clayton

The mainstream media should be thankful that President Donald Trump is in office. Look at all the attention they are getting. Look at all the stories and theories about him they are writing, tin foil hat conspiracy stories and all.  They can’t seem to get enough of him. They criticize him left and right and people wonder how much can he take and will he resign? Therein lies the rub sort of speak.

The other night on Sean Hannity’s show Monica Crowley stated that Trump really enjoys and gets off on all this criticism because it is a major distraction by the media so he can get things done.

Notice the media never mentions all the things he’s accomplished to make it look like he’s not doing anything, but if you do some research like I have you can see what he has accomplished, more than any other president in the shortest period of time. Trump is a workaholic and only gets four hours of sleep a night.

Here’s a list of all his accomplishments so far.

1) He got conservative judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.

2) The stock market is at an all-time high.

3) Consumer confidence is at an all-time high.

4) He created more than a million jobs by undoing Obama’s regulations.

5) Mortgage applications for new homes is  at a 7 year high.

6) Unemployment rate is at a 16 year low.

7) Signed the promoting women in entrepreneurship act.

8) Gutted 800 Obama era regulations thus freeing up companies to hire again and get the economy moving once again.

9) Ended the war on coal and caused a new mine for coal mining to open that will mine clean coal. He also put the miners back to work.

10) Weakened Dodd-Frank regulations.

11) Promotes buying and hiring American.

12) Investments from major businesses such as Foxconn, Ford ,Toyota, Intel amd others will build here now.

13) Reduced illegal immigration by over 70%.

14) Bids for the border wall are underway.

15) He’s fighting back against sanctuary cities.

16) Changed the rules of engagement against ISIS.

17) Drafted a plan to defeat ISIS.

18) Worked to reduce the cost of the F-35 fighter jets.

19) Imposed a five year lobbying plan.

20) Sanctioned Iran over its’ missile program.

21) Responded to Syria’s use of chemical weapons.

22) Reduced tax reform plan.

23) He’s renegotiating NAFTA.

24) He withdrew from the Trans Pacific Partnership thus keeping jobs here.

READ:  President Donald Trump’s Schedule for Saturday, October 7, 2017

25) He pulled us out of the Paris Climate Accords thus saving us millions of dollars every year.

26) Created a task force to reduce crime.

27) The DOJ is targeting dangerous gangs like MS-13.

28) Signed independence and economic growth law.

29) Signed an executive order to protect police officers and target drug cartels.

30) Signed an executive order for religious freedom.

31) His administration is working on sending education back to the states.

32) He’s fixing the dept. of Veterans affairs so now vets can choose their own doctors and be covered. This also protects whistle blowers and allows VA to terminate bad employees..

33) Authorized construction of the Keystone and Dakota pipelines. The Dakota pipeline is up and running without harming the environment.

34) Created commissions on election fraud and opioid addiction.

35) Food stamp use is the lowest level in seven years.

36) Reduced the White House payroll saving taxpayers millions of dollars.

37) He’s donating his salary to various causes.

38) Signed 52 pieces of legislation.

39)  Cut 600 billion from UN peacekeeping mission.

40) Gas prices lowest in more than 12 years.

You won’t hear any of this in the mainstream media. All they know is destroy, distract and damage. That shows that they don’t care about the people they claim to care about because if they did they would work with Trump and make the country better.

Trump accomplished all of this on his own without the help of congress who are useless at this point.  All the media cares about is how they can destroy him today. They have no solutions of their own. They are all deranged ideologues suffering from what is known as Trump derangement syndrome. No wonder the media’s and congress’ ratings are lower than Trump’ s. His may be low, but theirs is lower.

In the areas of economics and national security, Trump is in the midst of healing this country’s true woes. He’s facing nearly insurmountable opposition from every corner of Washington and the media. But he’s started something in motion that will ultimately prevail. He has turned the ship around. That’s moral victory. That’s making America great again. That’s all that really, truly matters.

Only God Can Heal America 

America is reeling again. Families have been ripped apart and individual lives have been torn apart.

The pain is palpable, the shock tangible. Can America still be healed?

The Pointlessness of Vegas is Its Point 

David Aaronovitch’s article in The Times today dares to say what others dare not say about the Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, namely that the point of his action is the pointlessness of …

Here we are living in a world which scorns the religious dogma and calls out for us to be brave and go into the world alone and out of the world again alone, yet when someone does exactly that, and takes their actions to the logical conclusion of that position, everyone scurries to their comfort blanket of motives.

The motive is staring the godless culture, the secular culture of the immanent frame (as Charles Taylor puts it) in the face, and the culture blinks.  It cannot stand its own truth.

Las Vegas Shooting: Pure Evil 

The President was right on target when he referred to the murderous act in Las Vegas as “Pure Evil.” Satan is the author and instigator of all evil.

We don’t yet know whether the 64-year-old Vegas gunman was deranged or cruelly rational. But we do know his act was demonic. No, the devil didn’t make him do it. The murderer made a horrible choice by giving Satan control of his life and accomplished the enemy’s deadly purpose.

“If a man wishes to be remembered as virtuous and decent, he must live virtuously and decently.”

by Matt Walsh

Hugh Hefner died last night. I’m sorry he’s dead. I’m sorry for his family. But mostly I’m sorry for the incredible damage he did to society as one of the pioneers of the sexual revolution and a driving force behind our cultural decay.

It’s unfortunate that we must point out the fact that Hefner was a pornographer and a pimp. That his life’s work was to amass a collection of desperate women who were willing to be used and exploited. But we must tell this truth in order to combat the untruths that people are now saying about him.

We live in a country where men like Hefner are immediately canonized upon death. I’ve seen Hefner described as a “hero” and a “role model.” These are lies, and we must call them lies. The fact that Hefner is dead does not change the fact that he was a peddler of filth. If a man wishes to be remembered as virtuous and decent, he must live virtuously and decently. We don’t become virtuous and decent when we die, as if death itself washes away every bad thing we’ve done. Quite the opposite, actually. Death is when we reckon with the bad things.

I’ve been assured that Hefner is “in a better place” now. I realize this is just a thing we say about all dead people, no matter who they are and what they did. And indeed it’s possible that Hefner repented before death and has now entered the Better Place. But to confidently state as fact that a pornographer is in Heaven is arrogant and dangerous. Pray that God has mercy on him, but do not run around declaring that a man who spent his life having orgies and taking pictures of naked women must necessarily be reaping eternal rewards.

Let’s try to be serious for a change. Let’s treat the death of a man like Hefner with somber honesty. It is always sad when someone dies. It is even sadder when a corrupt and decadent man dies. We may have hope that a man of great faith and goodness is in Heaven. We may have the same hope for the corrupt man, but it is a slimmer hope. So, we simply trust in the mercy and justice of God, knowing that He will deliver us all to the destinations we have chosen. And, if we must learn anything from Hefner’s life, it’s that a life of selfish pleasure seems so pointless once it’s over. That is the great lesson he taught us.

May God have mercy on him and all sinners. Amen.

Two Words That Give Me Hope for America 

If you want bad news about America, I can give it to you in abundance. If you want to make a case for why it’s too late for national reformation, I can make quite the case. Yet there are two words that give me hope, and I want to share that hope with you. But first the bad news: America is really sick – as in really, really sick. That’s why some conservative preachers and pundits believe we have passed the point of no return. After all, the blood of more than 55 million aborted babies is crying out from the ground. How long before God avenges it?

The Woman Who Allegedly Tried to Drown Her Baby in a McDonald’s Toilet Should Make Pro-Choicers Squirm – Faithwire

But the fourth thing you need in your life is you need something to hope for. There is never a right time to do the wrong thing, and there’s never a wrong time to do the right thing. Just do what’s right.

A Brief, Biblical Response to the Stoicism of Tim Ferriss

Tim Ferriss in an incredibly successful writer, podcaster, investor, and corporate advisor. As he relates in his 2017 TED talk, he was found intellectual satisfaction in the ancient philosophy of Stoicism. Ultimately, however, Stoicism will fail Tim. Although there are many ethical comparisons between Stoicism and biblical Christianity, the foundational contrasts between the two are irreconcilable. The main differences between biblical Christianity and Stoicism can be summarized in the three most important events in the life of Jesus Christ: His incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection.
