News of the World that Liberals Never Hear

Fed a constant diet of leftist propaganda, liberals have no clue about the actual news

Published

on

In the recently released movie, News of the World, Tom Hanks plays a former Civil War captain for a Texas regiment who now makes his living by going from town to town reading newspapers to audiences. The town folk of that era were essentially isolated from what was happening in the rest of the country and the rest of the world. If that sounds familiar, today’s mainstream media readers – liberals – are in the same boat.

Fed a constant diet of leftist propaganda, and excluded from what’s occurring, most of them, sadly, have no clue as to what’s going on in the U.S. or around the world. Most have no idea about Biden’s outrageous blunders in the Middle East that are already heading us towards a new war in Syria.

Most have no idea how Biden enabled China to inexorably diminish U.S. power and influence while enhancing their own. Too many have zero understanding of how Biden’s dalliance with Iran threatens the world.

Life Without a Clue

Liberals have no clue as to the Biden crime family’s vast and blatant offenses against America. Many have no knowledge of Hunter Biden’s continuing nefarious activities with Ukraine, Russia, and elsewhere. Some still have only a scattershot understanding of the sexually aggressive behavior and utter mismanagement of Governor Andrew Cuomo, although, thankfully his deeds are finally catching up to him, and he is in deep doo-doo.

Too many liberals have no idea that Joe Biden’s picks for various cabinet posts and other top positions are precarious at best, and that the credentials of the people he has nominated are highly questionable, even among Democrat congressional representatives and senators.

Only when you visit any news site on the internet, other than those dominated by “progressive Leftists,” you see that Joe Biden, or more specifically, his handlers, are making a mess domestically and internationally. One shudders to think what will happen if he and his utterly incompetent vice president remain in office for another terrifying 46 months.

The “Woke” are Brainwashed

A recent poll of Democrats proves to be illuminating. When asked what their number one concern is, unquestionably it is “Trump voters.” In other words, despite all the vital  events occurring here and abroad, the Leftist media machine has so utterly brainwashed their readership that these poor souls believe that somehow someway, Trump voters are the biggest problem confronting the country, followed by white nationalism, and systemic racism.

Those of us on the right are only mildly shocked. Shocked, yes, because the poll signifies how utterly brainwashed Democrats are. Only “mildly shocked” because we already understand that this group has been brainwashed for eons. It is not entirely surprising that Trump voters, continually demonized over weeks and months and even years, are now seen as the nation’s number one concern.

In 2021, for such an intellectual and informational chasm to exist is something for sociologists to study for years to come. How, in a world with the greatest information delivery machine that humankind has ever known – the Internet – can half of the populace be so utterly ignorant? The answer, seemingly, is that an “Information Iron Curtain” has descended upon them.

The Information Iron Curtain

Although they are free to click on alternative news sites and gain perspectives that cannot otherwise be gleaned from the sites they patronize each day, they do not make the attempt. The irony is that they are seconds away from gaining some semblance of objectivity.

Those on the right have no choice but to be exposed to the news and views of the Left all day long, every day, because the mainstream media dominates discourse in our society. We know what liberals are being told, and we know what conservatives are being told.

By contrast, liberals have no idea about conservatives, what they read and think, because the news that liberals acquire about conservatives arrives through the stringent filter of the mainstream media. And the mainstream media has no intention, ever, of offering a balanced perspective.

So Confident, So Wrong

In a world dominated by sound bites, too many on the left listen for only the first couple seconds of a broadcast, read only the headlines or the captions in a news article, and converse only with one another. They arrogantly proceed throughout their day confident in the knowledge that they know exactly what’s going on. As such, they “know” that Trump voters and their views are evil and need to be purged.

George Orwell called it accurately in 1984 when he described how newspeak –  propagandistic verbiage characterized by circumlocution, euphemism, and the inversion of customary meanings – dominated public discourse.

Fortunately, for now, newspeak only dominates among the people who won’t look any further. For the rest of us, we will continue to read multiple sources, ferret out what’s actually happening, separate the wheat from the chaff, and ignore stories that rely on anonymous sources and alleged spokespersons to strive to learn what is true.

The People Who Size You up Instantly

Beware of people who conveniently assess what you need, while missing the boat about their own needs

Published

on

I went to a social gathering and, arriving early, few others had arrived. So I took out my notepad and pen, and leisurely started making notes. A lady who saw me, asked what I was writing, which, of course, could be either a friendly way to start a conversation, or intrusive, depending on your point of view. I took it as the former, and shared with her my predisposition to take notes outside of my office where I generate ideas that don’t readily emerge at my desk.

Apparently my explanation was not satisfactory for her. In rapid succession she told me, ‘You need to get a drink. (Actually, I don’t drink.) You should to stop making notes. You ought to relax. (Making notes is relaxing to me.) You need to get a life.’

Paradoxically, I am the author of the books, Breathing Space and Simpler Living, and the audiobook, Get a Life. I also own the registered trademarks for the programs, Relaxing at High Speed and Managing the Pace With Grace. I have delivered 1,060 lectures on these topics for three decades.

Quick and Wrong

It’s beyond strange when someone at a social gathering, in such short order, will assess what I need to do, with one pronouncement after another. When told that I needed to relax, I said, “If I was any more relaxed, I’d fall asleep.”

I came away from that experience recognizing that people who will readily tell you what you need are the ones who need what they’re telling you. You might have noticed a somewhat similar phenomenon in the workplace.

Suppose you work in a company that is crowded, noisy, and busy almost all the time. However, in your own office or cubicle, whichever the case might be, you’re able to maintain order.

Perhaps you have installed some sound barriers, if that is appropriate, and have crafted a workspace where you can get things done. People who walk by notice that your office equipment, resources, and possessions are organized. Guess what? Some office mates won’t tell you this, but they are uncomfortable with your organizing skills.

If they could find a simple way to articulate it, they would tell you, “Loosen up.” You don’t need to be so neat and orderly.” Why are they itching to tell you this? Because your level of organization makes them feel inadequate.

Be Like Me, I’ll Feel Better

Much like the lady at the social gathering, who told me ‘what I needed,’ some people in your immediate environment, in observing your capacity for taking charge of your space, and perhaps noting your higher-than-average level of productivity, would rather that you acted and proceeded in a different way. You might not hear that from them, but that is some might be thinking.

Beware of those people who so conveniently assess what you need, while completely missing the boat about their own needs. They fail to realize that what they’re telling you, is probably what they need to address for themselves.

Micro-tasking for Effective Performance

Professionals who can micro-task are in demand while those who multitask often do a disservice

Published

on

Much as been discussed about multitasking and fortunately, much of what has been written exposes the myth that multitasking represents. Instead of making us more productive and having a greater output, we tend to slow down on the very things that were trying to speed up on, and we end up making more errors.

Micro-tasking, by contrast, is the ability to compartmentalize and to focus in quick, short intervals on a variety of items that compete for attention. This is a vital skill for career professionals. While micro-tasking is effective for quick decisions, and for handling routine and short term tasks term nature, multitasking is the attempt to handle two or more important tasks at the same time. It is not to be confused with micro-tasking.

A Skill to Cultivate

Some workers have little choice in the short run but to work in a distracting, noisy environment. Some employees, in particular, were retained to be able to quickly shift their attention from one issue to another, focusing on each issue as needed.

In an interruption-based environment, such as a hospital, police station, retail store, or airline ticket counter, the ability to micro-task is a valuable skill.

Throughout the course of a day, a manager in such settings might encounter a variety of people asking questions and voicing concerns. For sale managers micro-tasking can make all the difference in making quota or not.

Slow Down!

Tasks that require our sharp attention necessitate that we slow down, focus, keep interruptions at bay, and work as effectively as we can, toward completion. Handling two tasks simultaneously, each of which require sharp attention, is a prescription for poor results.

Professionals who can micro-task are in demand. Others, who engage in multitasking, often are doing themselves as well as their organizations, a disservice.
