    House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Wednesday rejected calls to resign from her leadership post — prompted by her support for impeaching President Donald Trump over last week’s riots at the U.S. Capitol. “I’m not going anywhere,” Cheney told Politico reporter Melanie Zanona. “This is a vote of conscience. It’s one where there are different views in our conference.”
  • AOC: ‘We Need New Leadership in the Democratic Party’

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said the Democrat Party needs new leadership — a remark which comes after two years of rumors infighting among establishment Democrats and far-left progressives in the caucus as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) continue to hold a grip on ultimate direction of the party. Ocasio-Cortez made the observation during a Wednesday interview with The Intercept’s Jeremy Scahill as they discussed a variety of issues — from President-elect Joe Biden’s “corporate revolving door” transition team to the prospect of shifts in Democrat Party leadership.
  • The 5 Laws of Human Stupidity

    Whole Earth Review ^ | 1987 | Cipolla C.,
    Cipolla gave a work of beautiful clarity in his essay on the phenomenon of stupidity and its effects on human survival. These are Cipolla's five fundamental laws of stupidity: 1. Always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation. 2. The probability that a certain person (will) be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person. 3. A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses. 4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid...

    Nov. 5 (UPI) — Approval of U.S. leadership in Britain has sunk to an all-time low, according to a Gallup survey on Thursday. The poll shows that just 15% of British citizens approve of President Donald Trump’s leadership, and their approval has steadily eroded since he took office almost four years ago.

    November 1, 2020 If he doesn't win, it won't be because he didn't try hard enough. "President Donald Trump is spending one of the last days before Election Day engaged in a five-rally blowout across several key states where he is either trailing Joe Biden or running narrowly ahead. After visiting Michigan, Trump will travel to Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida for events there later Sunday. Meanwhile, Biden is holding a pair of events in Philadelphia" (NBC News). So Biden is traveling about 30 miles from home to give 2 events, while Trump is traveling something like 3,000 miles...

    Take your pick among American women in history – Dolley Madison, Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Ida Wells, Mary McLeod Bethune, Carrie Chapman Catt, Amelia Earhart, Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Chase Smith, Barbara Jordan, Coretta Scott King, Jackie Kennedy, Betty Ford, Grace Hopper, Vera Rubin, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg among countless others. With an impartial, astute, and, need I say it, sane press, Amy Coney Barrett would be on her way to be celebrated as a champion of women everywhere. In this era, being a conservative woman, being a Catholic or Christian, or holding a set...

  • The Letter a Sports Icon Should Pen to All Americans

    Professional athletes, many being minorities, have a unique opportunity to spread a positive message about America as a land of opportunity that, while imperfect, has a calling and destiny unlike any in the world. Such a message would bring hope, healing and encourage a “Yes, we can” mentality to millions of all backgrounds. Instead, LeBron James and other professional athletes have collectively spread a false narrative that our nation is systemically racist and inherently bad. In so doing, they fuel racial tension, perpetuate a victim mentality and perpetuate civil unrest. “By their fruits ye shall know them.” The fruits of...
  • Socialist Joe Biden is Leading from Behind, Again

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by James McCoy. On August 31st self-appointed Socialist Joe Biden came out of his basement bunker to stick his toe in the campaign trail water accompanied by the chorus from Led Zeppelin’s Dazed and Confused--“Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true.” Feeling the pressure of trying to conduct a lackluster virtual campaign from his basement and bowing to intense pressure from his campaign advisors, Biden timidly tried to engage Pennsylvania voters with his talk at a simpatico venue, Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. But the candidate still refused to take any...

    Today, executives everywhere are adapting to the reality of the Covid-19 pandemic. Information is changing daily, solutions are unclear and supplies are often limited, and decisions bear life-or-death consequences. At the same time, with the social justice movement gaining momentum in the United States and Europe, customers and employees are holding companies to a higher standard of social responsibility than ever before. Military leaders have experienced challenges of similar magnitude. For insight we can turn to their lessons: BE DECISIVE: Don’t dwell on your losses. In 1812, after Napoleon invaded Russia, Mikhail Kutuzov, the celebrated field marshal, knew that strategically...
  • Wisconsin’s Unemployment Crisis a Failure of Leadership

    07/17/2020 3:50:16 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | July 17, 2020 | State Senator Dale Kooyenga
    As tens of thousands of Wisconsinites continue to wait for their unemployment benefits, we just learned that the state agency overseeing the program erroneously overpaid $21.2 million in benefits during the month of April alone. It’s an astounding illustration of the failure of leadership.  For countless Wisconsinites, "crisis" is the correct word to describe Wisconsin’s unemployment debacle. When a one-size-fits-all policy closed down the state’s economy in response to the coronavirus pandemic, a massive surge of unemployment claims became the most predictable outcome of that incredibly consequential decision.From March 15 through July 7, nearly 730,000 applications were received by the Department of...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had a message on Thursday for other governors who have implemented “really draconian, arbitrary restrictions” during the coronavirus outbreak, saying, “You don't have unlimited authority and people do have rights.” DeSantis made the comments on “Fox & Friends” in response to a question from host Ainsley Earhardt, who asked if he thinks that “some of these governors that are just doing a one-size-fits-all for the entire state” are “being too strict and going too far.” “I don't think any governor has the authority to restrict anyone unless there’s a direct relationship to combating this virus,” DeSantis...

    Throughout history, strong women have challenged the status quo by standing firm and refusing to be bullied. On this Mother’s Day, permit us to pay tribute to three of them. When Rosa Parks boarded the Cleveland Avenue bus the afternoon of December 1, 1955, she didn’t expect to become a national figure. She had finished work as a seamstress at a Montgomery department store and just wanted to get home. As required by local ordinance, she first entered the bus in the front to pay her fare, then exited, going to the back (Negro) entrance to re-board the bus. She...

    The Democrats have come up with a strategy for defeating President Donald Trump in the November 2020 presidential election: Lie. Lie a lot. Lie about everything Mainly Democrats want to make gullible people think that Donald Trump did not handle the COVID-19 pandemic well. Honest people who care about the republic must be prepared to refute these lies. Democrats argue that Trump did not act quickly enough. But starting from when? If President Trump acted swiftly, early, promptly and effectively, when is the beginning point? When was early? When was late? When should a competent national leader have taken action?...

    I believe that getting herd immunity as quickly as possible is the best path for nations which wish to survive Coronavirus and prosper. The personal credentials I bring to this are 3 decades as a health care professional and amateur work as a creative artist (including at Douglas MacArthur’s waterhole in Morotai, Indonesia) dealing with themes of nationhood, WW2 and freedom. But I don’t think what I know gives me a lock on what to do in this unprecedented situation. I am not God. Just one guy putting out my point of view. 2 relevant fundamental beliefs I hold are...

    Around the time Jews celebrate Passover and Christians celebrate Easter, the ABC television network airs the timeless 1956 classic film “The Ten Commandments” starring Charlton Heston, which is still the most popular rendition of the Exodus account to date. And yet, beginning in 1994, Steven Spielberg, former chairman of the Walt Disney Studios Jeffrey Katzenberg, and music recording mogul David Geffen decided to make a uniquely distinct version as their new studio’s first full length animated feature film. In 1998, DreamWorks Pictures released one of the most memorable and moving adaptations of the biblical account of Moses ever, and in...

    It was only a couple of weeks ago when the Finnish prime minister Sanna Marin, accompanied by Minister of Social Affairs and Health Aino-Kaisa Pekonen, Minister of Family Affairs and Social Services Krista Kiuru, and Minister of Finance Katri Kulmuni marched into a press conference and announced that there is no epidemic in Finland and not much needed to be done. At the time, there were only two confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the country. Last Thursday, the same ministers walked in again in the same order to announce that now the epidemic in Finland can not be stopped,...
  • Suburban Mother, CEO, American – Weathering the Crisis

    As the Chief Executive Officer of a group with 200 employees, as well as a suburban mother and American, my views may be outside the mainstream – or central to what most Americans think. At heart, seven principles guide me now. I share them here. Gratitude. First, as an American, I am grateful for President Trump’s hands-on, all-in, make-it-happen leadership. I am comfortable with his seasoned team of doctors, policy experts, economic minds and industry leaders, especially Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci. I am pleased an able vice president – and former governor – is at the apex....
