PRESIDENT TRUMP: WHILE WE ARE MAKING GREAT STRIDES AND OUR COUNTRY IS DOING AS WELL AND MAYBE IN MANY WAYS BETTER THAN IT’S DONE BEFORE, DEMOCRAT LAWMAKERS ARE EMBRACING SOCIALISM, THEY WANT TO REPLACE INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS WITH TOTAL GOVERNMENT DOMINATION. JUSTICE WEEK MORE THAN 100 DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS SIGNED UP FOR A SOCIALIST TAKEOVER OF AMERICAN HEALTHCARE. JUDGE JEANINE: THAT’S PRESIDENT TRUMP WARNING CONSERVATIVES OF A SOCIALIST NIGHTMARE THAT COULD OVERTAKE OUR COUNTRY IF WE ALIGHT. HERE WITH REACTION TO THIS AND SO MUCH MORE, DENNIS PRAGER WHOSE PRAGER UNIVERSITY WEBSITE HAS MORE THAN A BILLION VIEWS LAST YEAR. HIS LAST BOOK “RATIONAL BIBLE” IS THE BEST SELLING BIBLE COMMENTARY TODAY.>>IT’S ALWAYS GREAT TO SEE YOU. JUDGE JEANINE: THE FIRST THING I SAID TO DENNIS PRAGER IS YOU ARE A LOT BIGGER THAN I THOUGHT YOU WERE.>>I’M 6’4″. JUDGE JEANINE: THE PRESIDENT JUST TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEY WANT TO ELIMINATE INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND REPLACE IT WITH TOTAL DOMINATED GOVERNMENT CONTROL. YOU HAVE GOT A THING WITH SOCIALISM. WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOCIALISM?>>I WAS AT THE RUSSIAN INSTITUTE AT COLOMBIA. MY WHOLE LIFE I HAVE BEEN STUDYING SOCIAL I. AND COMMUNISM. IT’S AN ECONOMIC FAILURE. THERE IS A SIMPLE REASON. ONLY CAPITALISM CREATES WEALTH. NO OTHER ECONOMIC WAY OF LIFE, SYSTEM, PHILOSOPHY, LAST HAS EVER CREATED WEALTH. SOCIALISM SPENDS THE MONEY THAT CAPITALISM CREATES. NO ONE CAN DENY THAT. EVEN LEFTISTS CAN’T DENY THAT. THEY WILL SAY IT’S THE MORAL THING TO DO TO SPENT MONEY CAPITALISM CREATES. BUT THEY CANNOT DENY THAT IT ITSELF MAKES NO MONEY. SOW IT DEPENDS ON CAPITALISM TO EXIST. JUDGE JEANINE: WHEN MARGARET THATCHER SAID SOCIALISM IS FINE UNTIL YOU RUN OUT MUCH OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY.>>THAT’S RIGHT. SECONDLY, IT ALWAYS DEPRIVES PEOPLE OF FREEDOM. IT MAKES THE GOVERNMENT BIGGER AND BIGGER. AS THE GOVERNMENT GETS BIGGER, IN EVERY INSTANCE, THERE IS NO EXCEPTION, PEOPLE’S RIGHTS DIMINISH. AMERICA WAS FOUND ON LIMITED GOVERNMENT. JUDGE JEANINE: EVERY CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT ON THE DEMOCRAT SIDE BELIEVES IN SOCIALISM. WHEN BERNIE SANDERS RAN THREE YEARS AGO AND SAID HE WAS A DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST, NOW IT’S MAINSTREAM.>>THE LEFT HAS TAKEN OVER THE LIBERALS. LIBERALISM HAS BEEN VANQUISHED BY LEFTISM. IT’S BEEN KIDNAPPED. IF YOU WOULD HAVE ASKED A LIBERAL 50 YEARS AGO, ARE YOU PRO SOCIALIST? HE WOULD HAVE SAID ARE YOU CRAZY IN THE BIGGEST ANTI-COMMUNISTS WERE THE LABOR UNIONS IN THE 40s AND 50s AND 60sS. ALAN DERSHOWITZ IS A RARE EXAMPLE OF A LIVING LIBERAL WHO IS ANTI-LEFT. JUDGE JEANINE: YOU ARE MAKING A MOVIE, “NO SAFE SPACES” WITH ADAM COROLLA.>>WE ARE THE CLOSEST HUMAN BEINGS WITH DISPARATE BACKGROUNDS THAT EXIST IN AMERICA.>>IT’S OH PESSOR VERSUS OPPRESSED AND YOU ARE A HERO IF YOU ARE ON THE SIDE OF THE OPPRESSED.>>YOU CANNOT BE HAPPY IF YOU THINK YOURSELF A VICTIM.>>WE HAVE COMMON SENSE IN COMMON. THAT MEANS WE HAVE EVERYTHING IN COMMON.>>WE ARE FIGHTING FOR AMERICA WHICH IS THE GREATEST EXPERIMENT IN LIBERTY AND DECENCY IN HUMAN HISTORY AND I DON’T WANT TO LOSE IT. JUDGE JEANINE: WHEN DOES IT COME OUT?>>LATER THIS YEAR IT SHOWS WHAT’S HAPPENING ON THE CAMPUSES. THE DEPRIVATION OF FREE SPEECH. THAT WAS THE UNIVERSITY OF WHICH. THAT WAS NOT YALE. THAT WAS NOT BERKELEY. THAT WAS THE UNIVERSITY OF THAT WAS THE UNIVERSITY -F THAT WAS THE UNIVERSITY — THE UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING. THE YOUNG GENERATION. MY GENERATION SCREWED UP THE NEXT GENERATION. THAT’S A GENERAL STATEMENT, IT DID. JUDGE JEANINE: TELL ME QUICKLY HOW.

  1. Democratic party just must split in two!! Divide out the socialists and communists and watch the election process reduce them to nothingness!!

  2. THE problem is immigration, both legal and illegal. Whites will be a minority in the US by 2045. Look at voting patterns by race.

  3. Yes it’s the global military social program is now costing America $750 billion dollars a year! Good grief!

  4. He’s right you have rights no obligations. The recipe for failure like free everything with no work. That’s how the ugly lie of socialism/communism takes hold. Once it’s implemented the real truth of socialism/communism will emerge. The same as it has always done in history oppression all lost freedom starvation brutality by the government. That’s the real history of socialism/communism. These young people I pray in America learn this quickly before they implement this cruel evil economic and political system they are hell bent on implementing.

  5. If Socialism was bad, the U.S. Military would be a disaster, since it is the largest Socialist organization in the world.

  6. Oh my God I didn't think you could get more stupid Faux News Dennis Prager lmao socialism and Democratic socialism are completely different things and I know Prager for one is in love with a socialist he was fictional character named Jesus will I explain any of this to you now because I learned I researched I didn't listen to any news program oh one more thing nobody wants your shity stupid beat up truck

  7. Actually, it's Repubs who are eliminating rights. Freedom of religion, Roe v. Wade, right to breathe clean air for starters.

  8. Trump and the GOP appear to have gone from scary immigrants to scary socialism. It is so transparent they way Trump and the GOP use scare tactics and fear mongering to get people's votes. Don't have to worry about scary Martians though, we are going to have a Trump space force.

  9. The problem is the internet. People can now actually research facts and see how every other nation is doing.

  10. Anyone with eyes can see this plan…
    1/Invite the 3rd world into your country -no skills, no jobs, no money
    2/ Tell them everyone discriminates against you and you should have everything paid for by those with money through the welfare state, free schools, housing, medicare, etc …
    3/ Get guaranteed voters through welfare state dependancy.
    See, it`s not rocket science what the Socialist left wants to do to America and every free democracy…

  11. Oh it's not gonna creep anymore….with criminals like Drump in office it's gonna be easy….see you drumptards in 2020.

  12. Prager and Pirro in their remedial political science class.

    They probably can’t even spell socialist. FML

  13. This is what's so mind boggling, about all of the people who are against President Trump. They don't want to be ruled over, and yet they are embracing politicians who are all about Government Rule over the people, pushing it in a candy-coated package. President Trump is actually against Government Rule over the people, and is actually doing something tangible about it. Please people. Have some dignity. Don't let Peer Pressure Rule your mind!

  14. College drop out Prager makes yet another of his spectacular straw man arguments. This time, it's arguing against the idea of a complete socialist takeover of the government. Wow, sounds cary! And it might be…if that were something that anyone was actually arguing for. But it's not. So once again Prager manages to appear to say something of significance–which of course he NEVER does (none-the-less, he will always claim his nonsensical utterances to be "important".)

  15. The US is $22 Tril. in Debt with a $850 Bil. deficit, 71% of Americans live pay check to pay check, 70% make less than $50k/year, 50% have less than $400 in savings, 2018 over 142,000 jobs offshored, 2 million medical bankruptcies, 65% off all cancer patients lose all of their assets after 2 years of treatment….ALL BROUGHT TO YOU BY CAPITALISM.

  16. This guy may be smart an study socialism all his life, but fail to see what socialism really is it’s for equal wealth to distribute it equally he fail on the interview!!!

  17. Then when socialism doesnt work these socialists turn into communists & then your really fooked. How many times in how many countries does socialism have to fail before these idiot liberals & democrats get it? Dumbasses.

  18. There is all kinds of places to live if you love socialism. There is only one America.. leave your socialism outside it's boders.

  19. I don't know about you, but I'm OK if my taxes increase a little bit, in order to help America's education system thrive, make our schools safer, our transportation system better & give our teachers/first responders the raises they deserve.

    This isn't socialism!

    It's Americanism!

  20. All Goverments have some forms of Socialism , Social Security is not Socialism ,its a program that Americans pay into for old age ,many Americans depend on their Social Security , that they worked for and paid into , their called entitlement programs because their earned. All Republicans who dont want Social Security Benefits should give up their checks. Whats worse than Socialism is giving $1.5 trillion dollar tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans and putting the burden of paying for those cuts on the American People. Thats Corporate Welfare. Corporate Welfare and Corporate greed is much worse than Socialism because its creating an inequality of wealth and is robbing the middle class and others of finances ,Corporate Welfare and huge tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans are draining the Goverment of Tax Revenue thats used for our infrstructure , education, healthcare ,our military spending and all the other needs of our great Nation. The Republicans are not for the working class Americans , their for their rich corporate whoremonger leeches and the 1% that evade taxes to cheat the system. They give $1.5 trillion away and then claim they need to cut Social Security to pay for their tax cuts, What they mean is they want to steal your Social Security and Healthcare.

  21. This is a superficial argument. It reminds me of the official right wing side of one of Noam Chumpsky’s “limited range of debate” set-ups. The continued superficiality of debate about a discredited system motivated some of us old Cold Warriors, including a few Information Scientists, to document an argument that is beyond Chumpsky’s limits of critique. Stay tuned….

  22. This is happening yet the politicians are slowly letting it creep in. The media promotes socialism they need to be investigated

  23. while mr. president spent just some minor couple of millions of dollars in Vietnam for that big achievement some axis of evil = socialists here are pushing for public health care, food for all, education for those who want it, house to live, etc. such a shame! just look how mr. president raised to power through hard working in buying/selling condos with his PHD in Real Estate and brought his daughters, son, son-in-law, stormy daniels, john bolton, pompeo, pence and some of the most educated, logical, experienced people in economics, international diplomacy, education, social science, etc. to make America great again. never give up mr. president and never button your jacket! great to see how desperate people are in dealing with you, from top US army generals and top administrative to the leaders of the world. trump for ever, hop to see him king himself and gives everyone ease of mind.

  24. WOO HOO Lib Dems + Socialism = LEACH so simple its better than E=mc2 Einstein would be so proud we have come so far LMAO

  25. It is to be expected, the youth these days don't seem interested in working yet they want everything, socialism is free hand outs, here in Australia 86% of our income tax goes to welfare, and we have the 2nd highest household debt in the world.

  26. Dennis if you don't like socialism then push my book Handbook for American Conservatives, or my other book Wolves in Sheep's Clothing: the bi-partisan betrayal of America in favor of Socialism. [Amazon Kindle] They tell the truth.

  27. He says only capitalism creates wealth. What about the system that the Chinese have? Second largest economy in the world?

  28. When is Fox News going to move out of "socialist" New York and Rupert Murdoch move out of "socialist" California? Why don't they want to move to a real "capitalist" state like Oklahoma or Indiana?

  29. That's a dirty old man pedophile if we ever saw one. And like Trump he defends predators and pedophilia on his show all the time, has for years.

  30. Socialism has indeed crept into America. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, State Universities,
    tax payer subsidies to business and taxpayer bail outs of corporations and banks. Once we have
    done away with all these things, we will no longer be under the curse of socialism.

  31. People that are so scared of their masters aka business owners leaving if we tax them on a higher marginal tax rate make no sense. Don’t you realize that someone who isn’t as greedy and is ok with making millions every year will be able to replace them ?? Let them leave, let’s see how well it goes for them in a third world. People! The consumers! The workers! We are the ones that run the economy! Without us! There is no markets or businesses !!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  32. Yeah!! Lets start by learning how Trump used US Government taxpayer money to pay for the construction of his golf courses!!! Capitalism for the poor, socialism for the rich.

  33. Trump is a Nancy Boy Socialist who used taxpayer money to build his golf courses. Capitalism for the poor, Socialism for the rich!!!! Only in USA!!!

  34. I recently switched my support to republicans, but i wish they would stop calling everything socialism, and stop trying to pit Americans against each other. Stop labeling everything that could help Americans as socialism, school, health care, education cost are all a serious problem for most Americans.

  35. Great Job Mr. Prager! Outstanding and everyone here should go check out and subscribe to their channel … I regularly post prager videos to my facebook page!

  36. Minute 5:20 is pure gold … that little clip of 2 sentences or so sums it all up …

  37. When ancient Rome ruled they had great wealth. Small wealthy elite controling culture and policy using powerful military to expand territory. Jesus lived in occupied land of Rome. He preached more then anything else to help the needy. The community of Jesus and after in the early church everyone was equal and everything was shared.
    So perverted over 2000 years. Now the courtesans spread the filth of their masters claiming ownership of faith.
    When Evil is good and Good is evil.

  38. Socialism is not the problem. The problem is modern day fascism. If Trump were president in the 1930s and 1940s, he would have sided with the Nazis. Don't think so? Isolationism was strong in this country before Pearl Harbor. Trump would have gladly kept us out of Europe's war while cutting all the side deals he could with the Nazis in order to enrich himself. And that is what is going on today with Trump and the Russians and the Saudis. Don't believe me? Open your eyes. The man is a traitor, a thief and a crook. Lock him up.

  39. This guy doesn't even know what it is. And neither do you. Go do some actual research before you criticize something based on the words of people who also haven't researched it. "They want to replace individual rights with complete government control" is Jibberish. Libertarian-Socialism is correct and good. Learn things people.

  40. I went to
    Rochester College (Michigan), I recieved a 70 page" no word" list on the 2nd day of a professor I must have for 3 years to acheive my degree. In September I left.

  41. When the current college students begin voting, it wont be a slow creep anymore. New Zealand just had their gun rights taken away. There's really no other country to go to, to be free. I'm afraid the world is heading into another dark age . God help us.

  42. Dennis Prager is a slow creep. This guy is just a pompous self important phony. He acts so lofty and intellectual, endlessly casting himself as a big moral authority when he’s simply just another right wing partisan talkradio hack. He’s Limbaugh with religion.

  43. Capitalism long term is non sustainable without socialist institutions like the military, police force and politicians who give themself a fat salary and vote down a living wage to line the pockets of fat cats on wall street 🤦‍♂️

  44. Total Socialism without free enterprise means a dystopian hell like the one that George Orwell warned us about in his novel, 1984. Socialism inevitably leads to communism. Capitalism, and the free market system, has lifted more people out of poverty than any other socio-economic system. People are ambitious and always strive for more, they want power. Friedrich Nietzsche was right in saying that the will to power is the prime motive of human striving. Capitalism provides a means and a way to achieve what is naturally desired. Socialism stifles this natural "Will To Power". Capitalism combined with socialist ideas and taking the best of what both systems have to offer seems like a very good idea. An amalgamation of free enterprise combined with a more equitable system is the way to go.

  45. Watch the indoctrination of kids happening under your eyes.
    (e.g the new Aladdin at the cinema, how they changed Jasmine into a feminist role..? ).Silly example but subtle, it surreal and happening! Parents be more present with your kids’ upbringing: education, activities, friends, the world has changed !

  46. SATAN OBAMA ORCHESTRATED ALL THE EVIL GOINGS ON IN AMERICA. HE HATES AMERICA AND CHRISTIANITY. LOOK AT EUROPE AND THE COMPLETE MESS THERE, WHILE THE AFFLUENT GULF COUNTRIES NEVER ACCEPTED EVEN ONE ILLEGAL SETTLER – WHY ISN'T FAKE NEWS CNN & THE LEFT MEDIA REPORTING ON THIS? BECAUSE OBAMA CONTROLS EVERY ONE OF THEM.

    THIS IS WHY JESUS, GOD SENT CYRUS THE GREAT & DESTROYER TO REMOVE THE SATANIC REGIME WITH 1,000,000 : 0 ODDS. TRUMP IS CYRUS RE- INCARNATED.

    ARREST OBAMA, ROSENSTEIN AND THE SENILE MUELLER – THEY COMMITTED PERJURY AND TREASON.

  47. If socialism is the polar opposite of Prager U and Tgeur billionaire Zionist owners? Than I’m a socialist , communist, and cannabal. Any label that means anti-Zion

  48. Well, then, Capitalism generates money…. but money cannot be the end in itself, can it? So Socialism and Capitalism were always meant to go "hand-in-glove", not so? We have Capitalism to generate the wealth…. and the wealth, after it takes care of the needs of Capitalism, rightfully creates Social benefits such as: Public Libraries, public schools, public concerts, public transportation, public health, public, public, public….. This is what the wealth creates: Public Radio, the Public Internet, public TV, the availability of a public forum where ideas can be shared, argued, improved…. the public raising of those who cannot support themselves, the feeble-minded, the geniuses, the inventors, the free-teachers… the writers, the artists, the comedians…. it is for the Public Weal that Capitalism can spend its surpluses on the greater good, the public need, the furtherance of the Welfare of the biosphere of this beautiful Creation. Add a public comment…

  49. Socialism is a form of mental illness, it has to be. It must be easy for research to prove this by the laws of psychology.
