    I argue for direct confrontation with the forces that are destroying the planet I think that the best way to the only way that we’re gonna save the planet is if we dismantle industrial infrastructure you know the we know what is destroying the world we know that the combustion of fossil fuels is producing climate change for example we know that the you know that the expansion of agricultural operations of industrialization destroys habitat for the species we share this beautiful planet with we know what is causing the problems and if we’re going to if we’re going to stop environmental destruction we have to actually stop environmental destruction…

    Red flag laws violate our rights ft. Dana Loesch | #TruthStraightUp

    ♪ Loesch: Red flag laws are a total bastardization of our right to due process. If you want to have someone declared ineligible to carry or purchase a firearm, we have many, many legal pathways for that to take place. You can have a civil commitment. You can have someone adjudicated mentally unfit. You can take out a restraining order against an individual. There are a number of ways to do this while still respecting the cornerstone of our republic, which is our right to due process. You don’t have to diminish this right by passing red flag laws. That’s what red flag laws do. I have yet to see…

    Landmark Events Leading to the Constitution

    While in hindsight the American Revolutionary War and eventual Constitution seem like a sequence of neat, well planned events, in reality the Constitution was the product of many years of effort on the part of an incalculable number of individuals. Today we will study a sampling of these events and people by taking a look at a time line spanning the course of one hundred and seventy-one years. In 1620, the male pilgrims wrote and signed the Mayflower Compact. It was the first document of its kind because it was created by the people and gave them a direct say in their government – introducing the revolutionary idea that people…

    A Bill of Rights refresher | theSkimm

    The Bill of Rights are the first ten amendments of the Constitution. It lays out the specific rights that individuals have as citizens. The idea for the American Bill of Rights actually came from the British. George Mason helped give us the idea. And then James Madison put it into practice. Talk about teamwork. So the First Amendment is the freedom of Go express yourself. The Second Amendment spells out the right to bear arms. Hotly debated today. The Third Amendment prevents Americans from having to house soldiers. So basically the president can’t make your house a personal AirBnB. The Fourth Amendment says that the US government cannot put any…

    The Bill of Rights and the First Federal Congress

    It was a very tenuous time in American history. They needed to get it right very quickly in order to keep the public’s confidence in what they were doing. I’m Charlene Bickford and I direct the First Federal Congress Project at The George Washington University. The First Federal Congress Project’s goal is to publish the complete documentary record of the most important and productive Congress in United States history. They were left to create the whole federal government structure. They had to found the executive departments. They had to flesh out the judiciary of the United States. Seventeen volumes have been published and we have three that are in page…

    The Beehive: Preparing a section 7 report with Hon Chris Finlayson

    Well I’m off to the privileges committee now. This is a very important committee of Parliament that deals with allegations of breach of privilege and also questions of privileges, so we’re looking at the consequences of a decision of the Supreme Court in a case called Attorney-General v Erin Leigh, and also a question of agreement of service of documents in the precincts of Parliament. I hold a number of responsibilities within government. One of the most interesting is as Attorney-General. That is a very, very old office – I think was first established in England in about the thirteenth century. Ah, the Attorney-General has a number of very important…

    Freedom of Religion: Crash Course Government and Politics #24

    Hi, I’m Craig, and this is Crash Course Government and Politics, and I’m excited. I’m excited because today, we start delving into Supreme Court jurisprudence, with the totally controversial topic of freedom of religion. Now, other than being fun to say, jurisprudence means all the important cases on a particular topic, but unfortunately, I’m only going to be talking about a couple of them, because they demonstrate how the Supreme Court reasons its way through a tricky issue. Jurisprudence. Jurisprudence. [Theme Music] So the Constitution deals with religion right there in the First Amendment, which is also the one that deals with speech and the press and assembly and petitions.…
