American Leadership Back in Vogue

Great leaders have a presence. Every great boss or project manager that I have worked with has had something in the way that they carry themselves that spoke to not only their ability to lead, but their willingness to lead. The other commonality between all these great leaders that I have had the opportunity to observe and learn from was they had it from the start. I am not suggesting that they were born with some innate leadership gene, but I am saying that from the very first time that I met them they already had that presence and sense of self that they were ready to lead.

A Shift to War Footing – Time to Fight

Yesterday I blogged about rampant hypocrisy of the mainstream media which included a warning for DC Republicans. Today is a more important message… it is a warning for every patriotic American. We are at war. I have disputed several conspiracy theories on my blog, but the Deep State is real. Every day we have leak after leak and they only have one purpose… destroy the Trump presidency.

Mainstream Media – A Tale of Two Hypocrisies

Now this same Mainstream Media which gave nothing, but a free pass to the previous administration is engaged with Democrats in a campaign to smear the current administration and perform a coup against the American voters. What else do you call an ongoing effort from the Mainstream Media to report the news in such an obviously bias and dishonest fashion. The current administration has received record amounts of negative press despite economic indicators that the economy is poised to break 4% GDP growth for the first time in over a decade.

The IT Spending Black Hole of Government Waste

“During Bossert’s remarks, he set the very unnerving calculation that every federal government employee costs the US tax payer $40,000 per year in technology costs alone.” Everyone reading this should have done a legitimate double take as you read the 40K per year per employee number. Furthermore having worked in the IT industry for close to 20 years every person reading this should be horrified by the sheer amount of your taxpayer dollars that are being inefficiently spent by the government doing what every business in the US does every day for a fraction of that cost.

Director Comey Had to Go

I can’t make it any simpler than Director Comey had to fired. In fact I think this move was long overdue and should have been done either back during the Obama administration or soon after President Trump took office. For too long Director Comey has allowed the FBI to be politicized. We have selective leaks of information being used to partisan political attacks, we have seen potential conflicts of interest run rampant throughout the organization, we have incompetence and each of these has served to erode public trust in our nation’s most prestigious law enforcement agency.

The Feminist Narrative – Toxic to Masculinity

While I have no doubt that this argument began as a way to temper the baser instincts of us Y chromosome carriers, the hyperbolic nature of the feminist rhetoric has fanned the flames of this debate into a raging war against masculinity and ensures that anyplace where the concept of ‘toxic masculinity’ is taken seriously is simply an environment that is toxic to masculinity.

All Climate Deniers Should Burn at the Stake

Denier is a word that is better suited for the Spanish Inquisition rather than a modern science debate. Yes the issue of climate change should still be very much up for debate, despite the calls from the Left that it is settled science and we should all just fall in line like good little sheep. I do not deny that climate change is real. It has been happening since the beginning of time with our earth going through five different ice ages. I will even concede that a portion of it might even be manmade, but…
