An Unaffiliated Voter Attends CPAC

The way that the U.S. mainstream media manipulates truth makes one wonder – are we dwelling in the 1930s Soviet Union?

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), regarded as a highly influential gathering of U.S. conservatives, will take place on February 25 to 28, in Orlando, Florida. This will be the first time it will be held away from Washington D.C. For the previous eight years, it has been held at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Fort Washington, Maryland, which cannot accommodate the conference this year due to the Wuhan Virus.

The idea to first attend CPAC occurred to me after I had been watching C-SPAN and seeing videos from the previous year. Messages from speakers on the Right don’t otherwise receive coverage by the mainstream media – which has exercised a powerful form of censorship on American society for many decades, not merely the last few years – unless it is in a derogatory way.

The views of the Left, of course, appear every single day on the front pages of the New York Times, Washington Post, L.A. Times, Chicago Tribune, and hundreds of other newspapers across the U.S., as well as on CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, MSNBC, and most assuredly on CNN.

Welcome Stranger

The CPAC attendance fee is quite reasonable. I registered on site, in cash, so that I wouldn’t be placed on any mailing list. I arrived a day early and attended some of the sessions they had for college students and young Republicans and it was quite an eye-opener. These were good sessions, on target, with humor, and willing to address any question.

The entire event was very friendly, quite like my National Speakers Association conventions, but with even better speakers, I have to say. For a first-timer, I felt right in the swim of things, and I had a great time. The odd thing is I’m not even a conservative – I’m registered as unaffiliated – but for several years now, the Left’s worldview and socialist bent, to me, has been bordering on sheer insanity. There are a few issues on the Right with which I don’t agree, but overall, they Right has got the more well-rounded view of the world, the nation, and what needs to be done.

The media hallway, which extends for more than 50 yards, is open to anybody. That’s where I saw most of the luminaries up close. In the hallways, I personally greeted and exchanged words with Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Mark Levin, Kim Strassel, Eric Bolling, Katrina Pierson, Dan Bongino, Katie Pavlich, the political editor of the Washington Times, the editor of Judicial Watch, and editors of several lesser-known publications. I also stood within five feet of Ted Cruz, Kellyanne Conway, Alan Keyes, Sidney Powell, Libertarian Gary Johnson, and Sheriff David Clarke.

Mainstream Media Propaganda

It was quite heartening to see a significant number of African Americans, Asians, Jews, who are likely Orthodox with their yarmulkes, and other minorities in attendance. The ‘mainstream’ media goes out of its way to ensure that minorities never appear on camera, but I can tell you that they attended in good numbers and were embraced by everyone. What’s more, they played a significant role, many in leadership positions, and they will attend again next year and the next.

The manner in which the U.S. mainstream incessantly media manipulates truth makes one wonder – are we dwelling in the 1930s Soviet Union? Mainstream media propaganda amounts to much more than subtle lies or outright lies that they disseminate; it is also what does not receive any coverage whatsoever. It is camera angles, as well, innuendo, and dozens of subtle ploys, done almost reflexively to promote a socialist/Marxist agenda.

Take That

For nearly his entire first year in office, I cringed when President Trump tweeted some of his outrageous tweets. Then I thought about what a kind and decent man George W. Bush was and how the mainstream media, and the Left in general, continually portrayed him as a Hitler-type.

I learned to understand what Trump was doing. He kept slamming those who do not wish him well, and they could not keep him down. It’s odd that we had a President who sometimes acted like a fourteen-year-old. At the same time, he handed out exactly what the ‘libstream’ media deserved. Trump’s ability hit back twice as hard as he received made perfect sense. Capitulating to the distortion, hoaxes, and lies of the Left would have been of no value.

They had to cheat, massively, to remove Trump from office. On many levels, each of us senses that he is not done combating the sheer evil that the Left represents. I hope he speaks again at CPAC this year and every year.

I’ve spoken to 1075 audiences at conventions, conferences, and meetings, and have had the opportunity to hear probably 800 other speakers as well.

The insights, perspectives, or wisdom we need, to get us going often don’t have to be more than a few words. Here are 52 of my own six word “speeches,” drawn from my keynotes and breakout session on the topic of work-life balance. Some of these likely will resonate with you:

Choose from what you already have.
Everyone needs breathing space, especially you.
Information overload obscures meaning and relevance.
Deep breathes are essential for well-being.

Work-Life Balance in Your Life

Work-life balance (WLB) is the ability to experience a sense of control and to stay productive and competitive at work while maintaining a happy, healthy home-life with sufficient leisure. WLB, also referred to by some as work-life harmony, work-life shift, work-life blend, work-life effectiveness, or work-life integration, requires focus and awareness despite seemingly endless tasks and activities competing for our time and attention.

Work-life balance entails having what I call “breathing space” for yourself each day, feeling a sense of accomplishment while not being consumed by work, and having an enjoyable domestic life without short-changing career obligations. WLB is rooted in whatever fulfillment means to you within the course of a day and a week, and however many years you have left in your life.

Supporting Disciplines

Several disciplines support work-life balance though, individually, none are synonymous with work-life balance:

1) Self Management

Sufficiently managing one’s self can be challenging, particularly in getting proper sleep, exercise, and nutrition. Self-management is the recognition that effectively using the spaces in our lives is vital, and that life, time, and available resources are finite. It means becoming captain of our own ship; no one is coming to steer for us.

2) Time Management

Effective time management involves making optimal use of your day and the supporting resources that can be summoned – you can only keep pace when your resources match your challenges. Time management is enhanced through appropriate goals and discerning what is both important and urgent, versus important OR urgent. It entails understanding what you do best and when, and assembling the appropriate tools to accomplish specific tasks.

3) Stress Management

By nature, societies tend to become more complex over time. In the face of increasing complexity, stress on the individual is inevitable. More people, noise, and distractions, independent of one’s individual circumstances, require each of us to become more adept at maintaining tranquility and being able to work ourselves out of pressure-filled situations. Most forms of multi-tasking ultimately increase our stress, while focusing on one thing at a time helps decrease stress.

4) Change Management

In our fast-paced world, change is virtually the only constant. Continually adopting new methods, adapting old, and re-adapting all methods is vital to a successful career and a happy home life. Effective change management involves offering periodic and concerted efforts so that the volume and rate of change at work and at home does not overwhelm or defeat you.

5) Technology Management

Effectively managing technology requires ensuring that technology serves you, rather than abuses you. Technology has always been with us, since the first walking stick, spear, flint, and wheel. Today, the rate of technological change is accelerating, brought on by vendors seeking expanding market share. Often you have no choice but to keep up with the technological Joneses, but rule technology, don’t let it rule you.

6) Leisure Management

The most overlooked of the work-life balance supporting disciplines, leisure management acknowledges 1) the importance of rest and relaxation, 2) that “time off” is a vital component of the human experience, and 3) that one can’t indefinitely short-change leisure without repercussions. Curiously, too much of the same leisure activity, however enjoyable, can lead to monotony. Thus, effective leisure management requires varying one’s activities.

Entirely Achievable

Achieving work-life balance does not require radical changes in what you do. It is about developing fresh perspectives and sensible, actionable solutions that are appropriate for you. It is fully engaging in life with what you have, right where you are, smack dab in the ever-changing dynamics of your existence.
