    Journal of the American Revolution ^ | November 7, 2019 | Patrick Naughton
    The British approach to its American colony in 1775 offers valuable lessons for historians and military professionals in the synthesis between the levels of wartime leadership and their effect on direct action at the tactical level. As such, it is worthwhile to reflect on the British experience in 1775, and how guidance from strategic and operational leaders had a dramatic impact on the opening stages of the conflict. A misalignment of desired objectives, a desire to exercise control down to the lowest echelon, and poorly executed direct leadership defined the British approach concerning the events surrounding Lexington and Concord on...
  • WTAS: Support for the Trump Administration’s Unprecedented Outreach to State and Local Leaders

    Administration Officials Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt: “The White House’s State Leadership Days are one of the many, inventive initiatives that the Trump Administration has put forth to both strengthen federal collaboration with state, local, and tribal partners and advance good neighbor policies. I appreciate the opportunities to visit with and learn from leaders across the country as their input and insight are invaluable in our work and service to the American people.” Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue: “As a former Governor, I have never seen an Administration do as much outreach to local and state elected officials and...
  • Australia's Prime Minister resists radical feminist poison.

    03/09/2019 2:30:13 PM PST · by Ozguy1945 · 8 replies
    Conservative Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been widely criticised for saying on International Women’s Day that it is against his government’s core values to support the advancement of women at the expense of men. What he actually said was very mild and supportive of the advancement and empowerment of women. His mistake in the eyes of kneejerk critics was to remember that men count too. “See, we’re not about setting Australians against each other, trying to push some down to lift others up,” he said. “We want to see women rise. But we don’t want to see women rise...

    It’s almost comical hearing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) criticize POTUS Donald Trump as lacking in “leadership” qualities, which she’s done since his spectacular State of the Union Address. The president has only managed to revive of the U.S. economy, persuade NATO countries to spend more on their militaries and invest more in Europe’s defense, keep Russia in check, get China to the trade negotiating table, renegotiate NAFTA, and temper North Korea. Not bad for a former reality TV host and billionaire real estate developer with just over two years’ worth of experience as the leader of the free world. And...

    Ever since Donald Trump asked ‘What the hell do you have to lose’ in reference to inviting black voters to consider him during the 2016 Presidential election, the Democrats have had the vapors – not because they think black voters wouldn’t vote for Trump, but because they were afraid they would. And indeed many did. Not in overwhelming numbers, but Trump did very well, particularly among black men, especially considering the concerted media push to paint him as a racist. And if he or any Republican gets 20% of the black vote, it’s game over for Democrats, which they know,...

    POTUS, Donald J. Trump has rightly cancelled two (2) planned and scheduled political rallies in the states of Missouri & Mississippi this week, so that he will have full 100% concentration on an oncoming, dangerous, devastating, hurricane on a path to land in Southern Atlantic State shorelines and interiors. The was the right move, since it insures and assures the "Captain" will be in "the wheel house" commanding the destiny of the nations ship. Our prayers are with you and all Americans with exposure to the approaching danger. God bless you POTUS, Trump, & God bless the American people,& God...

    Secretary of State John Kerry told his Iranian counterpart that he wished the United States had a leader more like Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, according to comments made by a senior Iranian cleric and repeated in the country’s state-run media.Ayatollah Alam al-Hoda claimed during Friday prayer services in Iran that in negotiations over Tehran’s contested nuclear program, Kerry told the country’s foreign minister that he “wished the U.S. had a leader like Iran’s supreme leader,” according to a Persian-language report on the remarks published by the Asriran news site.“In the negotiations Kerry told [Iranian Foreign Minister Javad] Zarif that he...

    A few Sundays ago I was encouraged to take a flyer after mass detailing the Catholic position on DACA and immigration. I'll spare you the details, but it is basically amnesty. But is that really the Catholic position on immigration? Is it true that in order to be a good Catholic one must delete the borders of a nation and welcome in any person at any time for any reason without reserve? Nonsense.I know I'm not the only one in the laity who rolls her eyes at the messaging coming from the American bishops on this issue. Sarah Hoyt...

    Well, well, well. So Mister Trump is going to meet with the leader of North Korea. Stunning. For someone who's universally castigated as being a clueless, all thumbs palooka of a leader, this fellow sure gets a lot of things done. Very significant things. One might even say world transforming. You can hate him, berate him, and try very hard to minimize any of his accomplishments, but President Trump is starting to tip the arguments his way. The previous President of the United States was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for…what again? Still no one knows. Where I live in...

    A high pressure situation with lots of screaming, intimidation, maybe even threats of violence ... the Democrat-Media Complex thought they had President Trump where they wanted him, forcing him into a scenario where he could be shown as overwhelmed, bumbling, inept. But instead, the SchumerShutdown only takes Donald Trump back to 1980s New York City, where he learned bargaining the hard way, with corrupt bureaucrats, lying politicans, and threatening union goons. And Trump learned well then, because look at how he's now handling the shutdown. The only leverage the Dems ever had was to tie the budget to immigration, to...

    NRO ^ | Victor Davis Hanson
    America has always enjoyed two antithetical traditions in its political and military heroes. The preferred style is the reticent, sober, and competent executive planner as president or general, from Herbert Hoover to Gerald Ford to Jimmy Carter. George Marshall remains the epitome of understated and quiet competence. The alternate and more controversial sorts are the loud, often reckless, and profane pile drivers. Think Andrew Jackson of Teddy Roosevelt. Both types have been appreciated, and at given times and in particular landscapes both profiles have proven uniquely invaluable. Grant/Sherman Both Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman were military geniuses. Grant...

    The world equates American military power with the maintenance of the postwar global order of free commerce, communications and travel. Sometimes American power leads to costly, indecisive interventions like those in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya that were not able to translate superiority on the battlefield into lasting peace. But amid the frustrations of American foreign policy, it is forgotten that the United States also plays a critical but more silent role in ensuring the survival of small, at-risk nations. The majority of them are democratic and pro-Western. But they all share the misfortune of living in dangerous neighborhoods full of...

    Former President Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution. One aide describes the beginning of a "delicate dance" that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party. Aides will huddle with Obama in the coming weeks to plot out what shape the former president's fall schedule will take. Advisers close to him say that while he will play an active role in helping his party rebuild, much of his work will be behind the scenes. He is likely to...

    The movie “Apocalypse Now” came out in August 1979, it was Francis Ford Coppola’s film on the Vietnam War centered on the mission of Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) to assassinate a US Army Colonel gone rogue, played by Marlon Brando. I was beginning my freshman year of college at the University of Tennessee, and as a student enrolled in ROTC, I went to see the movie. Of course, it took me three viewings to really come to grips with the film and understand it. However, everyone remembers the memorable character, and lines, of Robert Duvall who played an eccentric Air...
  • Dedication And Leadership: A Review (And a MUST READ for activism)

    On March 14, 1948, Douglas Hyde handed in his resignation as the news editor of the London Daily Worker and wrote "the end" to twenty years of his life as a member of the Communist Party. A week later, in a written statement, Hyde announced that he had renounced Communism and, with his wife and children, was joining the Catholic Church. The long pilgrimage from Communism to Christ carried Douglas Hyde from complete commitment to Marxism, to a questioning uneasiness about Soviet Russia’s glaring contradictions of ideology and action, to a final rejection of the Party. In Dedication and Leadership,...

    Bob Dole heaped praise on President Trump for what he described as the restoration of "strong American leadership" put on display during his trip to Europe over the past few days. Calling it a "successful trip" overall, Dole, a former Republican senator from Kansas who ran unsuccessfully for president in 1996, singled out Trump's speech in Warsaw, Poland, as being particularly important. In a statement Saturday, Dole described the speech from Wednesday as "one for the ages, a vital, eloquent, and stirring articulation of the values and shared goals that bind us together with the Polish people, and with millions...
