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.

Delegation: An Ongoing Phenomena

Failure to delegate effectively often happens because team leader don’t trust the people with whom they’re working

Published

on

For most of your career, you’ve read or heard that one of the key approaches to getting things done is to delegate effectively. This presumes that you have others to whom you can delegate. In my contact with more than 950 organizations over the last two and a half decades, I’ve found increasingly that people have fewer resources, a lower budget, and less staff people. If they want to get something done, often they have to do it themselves!

Assuming you have others to whom you can delegate, the first or second time you personally tackle a particular task yields useful information. You learn more about the nature of the task, how long it takes, and whether or not you enjoy doing it.

By the third time, a task of the same ilk as those you’ve handled before often becomes best handled by someone reporting to you. Such tasks could involve updating a database, completing an interim report, or assembling meeting notes.

All that You Can

On the path to getting things done, your quest is to identify all those things that you can possibly delegate to others and then prepare those others so that they have a high probability of succeeding. In the course of your workday there may be only a handful of things that you alone need to do because of your experience, insight or specialized knowledge. Everything else that can be delegated should be.

Some people feel they have to take care of everything themselves and to this day haven’t been able to break the habit of “doing it all.” If this someone is in your seat right now, recognize that as a category of one, you can only get so much done.

Many managers and supervisors fail to delegate effectively because either they don’t fully trust the people with whom they’re working, or they’ve always been get-it-all-done-by-myself types.

Take Time before You Assign

Prior to delegating anything to anyone, take the time to actually prepare your staff for delegation. This would involve assessing an employee’s skills, interests, and needs. You could even ask people what new tasks and responsibilities they would like to assume. You might be surprised at the wide variety of responses you receive. There may be people on your staff right now who can help you with tasks you’ve been dying to hand off to someone but didn’t see how or when you could put them into play.

While you want to delegate to staff people who show enthusiasm, initiative and interest, or have otherwise previously demonstrated the ability to handle and balance several tasks at once, sometimes you have to delegate to someone who has not exhibited any of the above. In that case, delegate on a piece-meal basis.

Ensure that the staff person is able to effectively handle the small task or tasks he’s been assigned and does not feel swamped or overloaded. When the staff person demonstrates competence, you can increase the complexity of assignments and even the frequency with which you delegate.

Multi-tasking: More Harm than Good

In this day and age, where so much competes for our attention, it is easy to stray!

Published

on

I belong to a local health club, and while I was there one day, I saw a woman get on the Stairmaster. I watched as she whipped out an mp3 player and started listening to music. Then, to my surprise, she reached into her gym bag, pulled out a book, and placed it on that ledge to read. I almost asked her if she would like a piece of gum!

Today, when so much competes for our attention, it is easy to stray! More often than we care to pretend, in the office and at home, we invite more than we can handle, and then act as though we didn’t. As individuals, throughout society, we are trained to believe that the ability to multi-task is a great attribute. Unfortunately, that’s a big mistake. Here’s why, and how to avoid multi-tasking in the future.

First Things First

What’s the fastest and easiest way to handle six tasks competing for our attention? Identify the most important task, second most important, third most important, and so on, then tackle the first and finish it all the way, move on to the second and complete it, then move all the way down the list.

Any other way of tackling those items, whether they are tasks for home or work, is simply not as efficient. The catch is, any other way is more psychologically satisfying.  Why?  It’s almost as if juggling projects, switching gears unnecessarily or abruptly, or leaving a job unfinished to start a new project gives you the opportunity to say to other people, “Hey, look at me! Look how involved I am! Look at how busy I am! I’m great at multi-tasking.” A multi-tasker, however, can’t compete with others who tackle their to-do list, one item at a time.

What about doubling up as a procedure for tackling a number of routine items or very simple tasks? You can eat dinner and read a book at the same time. Eating and reading at the same time is relatively harmless.

How about driving and talking on the cell phone at the same time? Driving requires your sharp attention, as does carrying on an intelligent conversation with someone else who is not present; doing both at the same time spreads your attention too thin, with often disastrous results. The same is true for projects you’re working on that require your best thinking.

Tips:
* give yourself 5 to 10 minute intervals to focus on the task at hand
* safe-guard your immediate environment to avoid interruptions
* acknowledge yourself whenever you stick to one task and finish it
* repeat all the above, often, knowing that ‘more often’ is better!

Your Undivided Attention

When you’re working on a new task, brainstorming, engaging in first-time thinking, or doing creative work, it’s vital to offer your complete and undivided attention to that one task before you. To dissipate your attention or otherwise stray means you are not going to do your best work.
