Visit With Dennis Prager

July 21, 2021

It has been my pleasure to post PragerU’s 5 minute videos on various topics related to society, culture, economics and politics, etc..

Dennis Prager, who is a very smart man, has organized PragerU and also publishes periodic very though-provoking “Fire-Side Chats” about important topics.

Mr. Prager, is a unique individual. He starts by talking about whatever seems to come to mind, including speaking to his dogs who may wander on and off the set.

If I am pressed for time I may scroll through his somewhat quirky introductions. If I have the time, I can always enjoy a quirk or two. This is because I can be somewhat quirky myself!

No matter what, when he very shortly get the meat of his topics for that session, he is most impressive in his command of his facts and excellent judgments upon the subject matter.

I hope you will take time to join this Fireside Chat and visit his webcite to view his many 5 minute videos on important topic of the day.

If you are so inclined, I hope you will support his great work with a donation.

America’s Youth: What’s Wrong?!

March 14, 2020

America’s Youth: What’s Wrong?!

Well, a lot is wrong. America’s many problems are too numerous and complex to discuss in one blog. However, I have discussed a great many problems in previous blogs and I strongly endorse the content of this wonderfully honest video. 

Prager University has generated the following video that identifies what they (and I) consider to be some of the most vital socio-cultural deficits leading to America’s great decline.

As a professor of psychology and practicing psychologist, during the past 50 years, I have painfully witnessed the American decline identified in this video. I can assure you that it is real, given the many employees, teachers, police/firefighters, parents, children and families that I have treated.

I hope you will view this important video and understand that President Trump, putting politics second to America’s general welfare,  has done more to address these deficits than any modern President. He must have four more years to continue his herculean effort.

Then, in future elections, America must elect other leaders that will follow his lead to continue this absolutely essential efforts. 

This is your reality America: Work to change it or continue to suffer the hellish consequences.

Big Differences Between “Leftists” and “Liberals”

September 4, 2018

Big Differences Between “Leftists” and “Liberals”

I have just been “schooled” on the difference between “The Left” and traditional American Liberalism. This was a lesson I badly needed.

I have been equating the left with liberalism and in doing so, I have done a disservice to many American Liberals. Though I work hard to do my research and stay informed on these matters, I have often failed to make this important distinction. 

I apologize and I will no longer make that mistake.

Although I will still not vote for traditional American liberals, I have liberal friends who I like,  respect, and whose friendship I value very much.

I judge that clean and healthy competition between liberal and conservative America-loving political influences have the best chance of keeping America close to that “sweet spot” on the sociopolitical continuum most likely to insure our society’s long-term success in competition for survival among our world of cultures.

I will now more carefully reserve my vitriol and deep animosity for those who, no matter what they may call themselves (liberals, progressives, socialists, communists, revolutionaries, antifa, anarchists, etc..) should more correctly be labeled as “Leftists“.

The problem is that many political leftists camouflage themselves with more palatable labels. For example, leftists frequently call themselves liberals and progressives. They then work in devious and illegal ways to implement leftist practices in order to incrementally “Transform America” into a socioculture that our Founding Fathers and the patriots of their day never meant America to become. 

In fact such leftist “transformations” of America would be the realization of our Founding Father’s very worst nightmarish outcomes for us all!

It is incontrovertible that leftists are the arch-enemies of America’s freedoms for all of its citizens. The freedoms that our patriots have fought and died to achieve and protect from the very beginnings this nation’s great and noble 241-year-plus experiment “Liberty for All”!

Please see the following presentation by Prager U to further understand the differences between true American liberals and the Leftists among us and elsewhere.

I ask that you to please send this important video by Dennis Prager to everyone you know.

Horrors! He Called Them Animals!!

May 24, 2018

Horrors! He Called Them Animals!!

In a recent article for the Patriot Post, Dennis Prager noted the following:

“If you want to understand the moral sickness at the heart of leftism, read the first paragraph of the most recent column by Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne:”

He quotes Dionne as follows,

“It’s never right to call other human beings ‘animals.’ It’s not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior of a given individual or group, no matter how much legitimate anger that genuinely evil actions might inspire, dehumanizing others always leads us down a dangerous path.”

Dennis then went on to make his argument that the use of the word
“animal”, as President Trump applied it to MS-13 gang members, was a moral statement, not a biological one.

The leftist-democrats and their mainstream media propaganda machines selected only the part of his interaction with another person that showed him mentioning that illegal immigrants were animals. However, he was only referring to MS-13 members. They then presented this as his and his administration’s encompassing attitude about all illegal immigrants, and by implication, all Mexicans and brown people from Latin America.

The following is part of an article written by Jim Geraghty that relates to this piece of damnable lying Leftist/Democratic propaganda.

Please read it and then also click on the blue titles for the whole story.

Trump’s ‘Animals’ Are MS-13 Members, Not All Illegal Immigrants

Members of the Mara Salvatrucha gang (MS-13) are escorted after being presented to the media after being detained by the police during a private party in San Salvador, El Salvador, August 10, 2017. (Jose Cabezas/Reuters)

“Making the click-through worthwhile: For once, Trump’s heated, hyperbolic rhetoric feels appropriate; a long look at a Democratic congressman who’s called moderate but is nothing of the sort; and the Robert Mueller investigation hits one year . . . and why it’s, at least so far, mostly just confirming what we already expected.

Who’s an Animal?

President Trump, during a roundtable event discussing sanctuary cities yesterday, talking with Fresno County sheriff Margaret Mims:

SHERIFF MIMS: Thank you. There could be an MS-13 member I know about — if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.

THE PRESIDENT: We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy. The dumbest laws — as I said before, the dumbest laws on immigration in the world. So we’re going to take care of it, Margaret. We’ll get it done.

I’d prefer if the president spoke more precisely and clearly, but it seems pretty clear to me that the president is referring to MS-13 gang members as animals. That, of course, is not what the media reported.

The New York Times: “Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting, calling those trying to breach the country’s borders ‘animals’”

HuffPost: “Trump Refers To Immigrants As ‘Animals.’ Again.”

Vox: “Trump on deported immigrants: ‘They’re not people. They’re animals.’”

The Washington Post: “Trump compares illegal immigrants to ‘animals’”

Come on, Washington Post. We expect you to shed a clarifying light on controversies such as these, not obscure them further with inaccurate headlines. Haven’t you guys ever heard that democracy dies in darkness?

You could argue, as John Harwood of the Wall Street Journal does, that even MS-13 members are human beings, and that there’s reason to be worried when an American leader — or a leader anywhere, really — starts arguing that a certain group of people aren’t really human beings. (You know, such as “partially born,” the disabled, or the terminally ill, right?)

But let’s have no illusions about MS-13. Their motto is “Kill, Rape, Control.” They’re heavily involved in sex trafficking and forcing underage girls into prostitution. They don’t merely kill those who cross them; they do so in particularly gruesome ways to intimidate others, such as stabbing a teenager 153 times in a public park. They leave bodies of victims near elementary schools.

Advancement within the gang requires murdering members of rival gangs. Some members are literally Satanists, justifying their murders with the claim that the Devil “wanted a soul.”

Stay Updated with NR DailyNR’s afternoon roundup of the day’s best commentary & must-read analysis.

Donald Trump says a lot of crude, obnoxious, inappropriate, incendiary, and disgusting things, but this . . . really isn’t one of them.”

End of quote.


The leftist/democratic media published this scurrilous smear tactic to defame a duly elected President of the United States and this purposeful slander should be legally actionable.

This and the unrelenting leftist/democratic media’s deceitful disinformation is all part of a great propagandist rule-of-thumb; one developed by one of the most skilled propagandists the world has ever seen.

All of this would simply be preposterous, were it not such a gut-wrenching symptom of how seriously our way-of-life has been damaged by the American Progressive Movement within the new Marxist Democratic Party and media.

Now, just for fun and to alleviate the sick feeling all of this gives me. When I grew up there were only three categories of materials on earth.

They were vegetables, minerals and animals.

So my fellow homosapiens, to which category do you belong? 

However, since my early schooling, science has broadened its taxonomy of living matter. Never the less, I suspect that most of us homosapiens will still wish to identify as animals among the expanded options available.

I challenge you to decide where you fit-in!

Iran Nuclear Deal: Death To Infidels!

October 4, 2015

Iran Nuclear Deal: Death To Infidels!

The average American has no idea about the horrific future that our government has brought to the point of near-certainty with its recent Iranian Nuclear Deal.

This matter is very complex and it cannot be presented in a single pithy sound-bite. Therefore the “low-information” segment of our population will remain ignorant of its tragic deferred consequences.

Our progressive/socialist/Islamic internal and external enemies know this well.

The great weakness in America’s Constitutional Republic is that this growing low-information segment of our population votes from a position of ignorance and their personal quest for immediate gratification through governmental largess.

Please take a few minutes to understand that with this Iranian deal in place, the blackest time in modern world history is poised to repeat itself. Then, send this video to everyone you know.

Dennis Prager will bring you up-to-speed on this massively important national mistake. A mistake that must be corrected as a result of America’s up-coming elections.

Vote true-conservative and remonstrate this matter with your current representatives.
