The 1970 movie A Guide for the Married Man features a husband who is cheating on his wife, in his own bedroom. When his wife walks in, the husband and his female lover calmly get dressed. The female lover walks out of the house. He makes the bed, in view of the shell-shocked wife.

The husband walks into the living room. His wife follows and accuses him of adultery. He asks, “When?” His wife refers to the woman who just left. The husband asks, “Who?” The conversation goes on like this, and in a minute, his wife is doubting what she saw with her own eyes.

This is a 51-year-old example of gaslighting: Sowing the seeds of doubt in a targeted group, for the purposes of inducing them to question their perceptions and judgments.

“Nothing Happened Here”

So it is with the 2020 election fraud. The Left will have you think that nothing happened here. They will have you believe that more than 2,500 eyewitnesses who filed legal affidavits under penalty of perjury did not witness anything and there were no potentially unconstitutional changes made to state election laws.

The Left aptly continued this guise. They paraded on CNN and MSNBC and the nightly news of the major broadcast networks and said that Trump supporters essentially are insane. “They’re under his spell.” “They need to be rounded up.” “They’re a disgrace to the country.”

Actually, the exact opposite in each instance is true. It is the Democrats and the Left in general who are a disgrace to the country. They are perpetuating the ruse. My goodness, do they think that they can maintain their gaslighting efforts for the rest of American history? Perhaps they do.

Congenital Liars?

Why does the Left lie so often and so easily? Why are they the source of fake news and propaganda the likes of which the world hasn’t seen since the 1930s, in the Soviet Union? Two fundamental reasons: They congenitally strive for power – power over you, power over your neighbors, power over your community, and power over your state. Today, they’re seeking the ultimate prize, power over the nation, fraudulently obtained and never to be surrendered.

The second reason why they can lie so often and so easily is that they share a near infantile fantasy about a “one-world global government” that will reign over each of us, concocting wonderful edicts which we must all follow. The Left is swept up in visions of Utopia, where enlightened leaders hand down rulings that benefit us all. Yeah, right…

Maybe in two or three hundred years when humanity reaches some new epoch. For now, I’ll stick with sovereign nations and the leaders who were duly elected to run them.

Utopia Doesn’t Live Here

If you know anything about Thomas More’s Utopia, Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan, Plato’s Republic, or any other classic novels from literature defining and describing utopian type states, then you know that in each case the inherent flaws within these governments ended up making societies far worse than simple democracies.

Is the American Left a bunch of communist sympathizers, or are they simply power-hungry dregs of the Earth? While we can’t know exactly what the Left’s endgame might be, the first 42 days of the Biden Administration have demonstrated that democracy, liberty, and justice are all in peril.

The Quest for Truth

Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines “truth” as, “the body of real things, events, and facts: actuality.” Truth is a valuable asset in an age where lies are abundant and fake news – actually full-fledged propaganda – rules the day.

Truth is regarded as hatred by those who hate the truth, and many people despise and hate the truth. The Left has demonstrated, time and time again, that they hate the truth. Hence, their spontaneous, reflexive reaction to squelch the freedom of speech of those who disagree with them.

Truth matters. Getting the truth out to others matters.

**The Red Report: A Conservative Perspective on Potential VP Picks for Donald Trump in 2024**

Check out Chris Widener’s new video looking at the three VP finalists. A deeper look in print below the video!

As the 2024 election approaches, the political landscape is abuzz with speculation regarding who Donald Trump will choose as his running mate. Three names frequently mentioned are JD Vance, Doug Burgum, and Marco Rubio. Each of these potential vice-presidential candidates brings unique strengths and a conservative vision that aligns with Trump’s agenda. Let’s delve into the qualifications and appeal of each candidate from a conservative viewpoint.

**JD Vance: The Outsider with a Powerful Narrative**

JD Vance, author of the best-selling memoir “Hillbilly Elegy,” has emerged as a potent force in conservative politics. His life story, rising from poverty in Appalachia to becoming a successful venture capitalist, resonates deeply with many Americans who feel left behind by the political elite. Vance’s candidacy embodies the American Dream, making him an inspirational figure for a broad swath of the electorate.

Vance’s conservative credentials are robust. He is a staunch advocate for economic policies that prioritize American workers, a critical issue in the Trump agenda. His focus on revitalizing manufacturing and curbing the influence of globalist policies appeals directly to the heartland voters who were instrumental in Trump’s 2016 victory. Additionally, Vance’s critique of Big Tech aligns with the increasing conservative sentiment against Silicon Valley’s unchecked power and perceived biases.

In the Senate, Vance has proven to be a strong voice for conservative values, consistently advocating for pro-life policies, Second Amendment rights, and a strong national defense. His ability to articulate these positions with clarity and passion makes him a formidable candidate. Vance’s outsider status, combined with his eloquent advocacy for the working class, would complement Trump’s message and broaden his appeal.

**Doug Burgum: The Businessman and Problem-Solver**

Doug Burgum, the Governor of North Dakota, is another compelling choice for Trump’s running mate. Burgum’s background as a successful businessman before entering politics mirrors Trump’s own journey, suggesting a natural synergy between the two. His experience in leading a state with a strong economy and low unemployment rates demonstrates his capability as an effective administrator and problem-solver.

Burgum’s governance style emphasizes fiscal responsibility, limited government, and economic growth—core tenets of conservative ideology. Under his leadership, North Dakota has seen significant advancements in technology and energy, particularly in oil production. Burgum’s expertise in energy policy would be invaluable in an administration committed to achieving energy independence and reducing reliance on foreign oil.

Moreover, Burgum’s pragmatic approach to governance, coupled with his ability to implement conservative policies effectively, showcases his potential to appeal to a broader electorate. His calm demeanor and focus on results over rhetoric could provide a stabilizing influence, balancing Trump’s more combative style. This blend of business acumen and political effectiveness makes Burgum a strong contender for the vice-presidential slot.

**Marco Rubio: The Experienced Statesman**

Marco Rubio, the Senator from Florida, offers a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of both domestic and international issues. As a former presidential candidate and a prominent figure in the Senate, Rubio’s extensive political background would bring a seasoned perspective to the ticket.

Rubio’s conservative stance on key issues aligns closely with Trump’s platform. He is a vocal advocate for tax cuts, deregulation, and strengthening the military. His expertise in foreign policy, particularly in relation to Latin America and China, would be an asset in addressing complex global challenges. Rubio’s Cuban heritage and his consistent support for freedom and democracy resonate with many Hispanic voters, potentially broadening the Republican base.

Rubio’s communication skills and ability to articulate a clear, conservative vision make him an effective campaigner. His youthful energy and commitment to conservative principles would appeal to both the Republican base and independent voters. Moreover, Rubio’s legislative accomplishments and his work on bipartisan issues demonstrate his ability to navigate the complexities of Washington, D.C.

In conclusion, JD Vance, Doug Burgum, and Marco Rubio each bring distinct strengths as potential vice-presidential picks for Donald Trump in the 2024 election. Vance’s compelling personal story and advocacy for the working class, Burgum’s business background and effective governance, and Rubio’s extensive experience and foreign policy expertise each offer unique advantages. From a conservative perspective, any of these candidates would complement Trump’s vision and enhance his chances of securing a victory in 2024. The choice will ultimately reflect Trump’s strategic priorities and the direction he wishes to take his campaign and administration.

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:
