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?

Published

on

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.

Smart Move in a Rough Economy: Help Your Boss to Shine

Stay on top of your job, your department’s goals, and your company’s objectives

Published

on

Making your boss look good can only reflect favorably on you. Both your boss and his or her supervisors will appreciate this.

The best way to make your boss look good is to handle your work efficiently and thoroughly. If your boss is fair, he or she will give you credit for the work, increasing your chances of promotion.

If your boss is not doing his or her share of the work, leaning on you unfairly without giving you the credit, it’s still likely that you’ll be promoted when your boss is promoted. That person knows you’ve been doing more than your share, and he or she won’t be able to take a new position without your help.

Becoming a Mentor to Others

Maybe you’re only 27 years old, or perhaps you’ve only been with your present firm for a year and a half. Yet, with your previous experience and achievements, you may already be in a position to serve as a mentor to junior members of your organization. This can be accomplished on an informal, ad hoc basis, and you can literally choose the amount of energy you’re willing to commit. Helping junior members always looks good to those above you, especially at performance review time.

Stay on top of your job, your department’s goals, and your company’s objectives. This three-way strategy includes reviewing your job description, deciding precisely what your department’s goals are, and determining your company’s objectives:

Your Job Description

First, knowing your job description and honoring it, or amending it if necessary, protect you from any misunderstandings. It will also give you an idea of the part you play in the total picture of the organization, an important factor in your work satisfaction and chance of promotion.

Your job description ideally contains all the important activities of your position, the knowledge you need to have or acquire to perform those activities, and some sense of your overall role. If your job description does not adequately detail the information you need to know and the responsibilities you have, now is the time to change it.

Company Goals

Second, learn and understand the goals of your part of the company. By whatever method your organization is broken into groups — department, division, project team — your group has objectives.

Goals are important to guide actions as well as to mark milestones. Knowing your group’s goals will help you to set priorities for your own work and make wise decisions concerning how jobs can best be done.

What is the Mission?

Finally, be aware of your organization’s mission. Any organization, from the smallest business to the multibillion-dollar corporation, has a mission. If you don’t already know it, find out. Your organization’s brochure, annual report, promotional literature, or employee handbook will have the mission spelled out.

The mission will unify and give meaning to all the division or department goals. Although conflicts among divisions will occur because of the nature of different responsibilities, a solid base can be produced when all employees realize the overall mission of the organization.

Lessons of the 2020s: Unanticipated Events Happen

Unforeseen tasks that arise represent intrusions on our mental and emotional state of being as well as on our time

Published

on

By now, nearly everyone has mentally marked the first few years of this decade as strange and, for those on the right, entirely upsetting. While we can’t guard against the unknown, or anticipate radical moves emanating from Washington DC, we can seek to do our best with what we have and what we know.

Each day when you compose your to-do list and begin proceeding merrily down it, do you take into account what is likely to occur in the course of a day? No matter how well we organize our lists and how productive we are in handling the products and tasks unexpected obligations, interruptions, and other developments arise that are going to throw us off.

How do you react when you are humming along, and all of a sudden, you get an assignment from out of left field? Perhaps your boss has asked you to jump on something immediately. Maybe a client calls. Maybe something gets returned to you that you thought was complete.

To Be Flustered No More

If you are like most professionals, you immediately will become flustered. The intrusion on your time and your progress means that you are not going to accomplish all that you set out to before the end of the day. Is there a way to proceed and still feel good about all that you accomplish?

I believe there is, and it involves first making a miniature, supplemental to-do list that accurately encapsulates the new task that you need to handle. Why create this supplemental to-do list? It gives you focus and direction, reduces anxiety, and increases the probability that you will remain buoyant at the time of its completion and be able to turn back to what you were doing before the task was assigned.

If you don’t compose such a list, and simply plow headlong into the unexpected challenge that has come your way, you might not proceed effectively, and you might never get back to the to-do list on which you were working.

Anticipating the Unexpected

Unforeseen tasks that arise represent more than intrusions on our time; they represent intrusions on our mental and emotional state of being. Some people are naturally good at handling unexpected situations. Most of us, however, are not wired like this. Interruptions and intrusions on our workday take us off the path that we wanted to follow, and tend to be at least momentarily upsetting.

So… when executing the items on your to-do list, proceed ‘knowing’ that there will be an interruption of some sort. You don’t know when it is coming or how large it will be, but it will pull you off course. The key question for you is: can you develop the capacity to maintain balance and equanimity in the face of such disruptions?

The good news is that you can, and it all starts with acknowledging that the situation is likely to happen, devising a supplemental checklist to handle the new task, and as deftly as possible, returning to what you were doing.
