The Importance of Effective Political Leadership

Our President’s Leadership Style…

It seems that we are between a rock and a hard place for the next 40 months…and it will be much longer unless Americans truly wake up and decide to save this country. With a Republican majority in the Congress, a minority in the Senate, a Liberal Socialist in the White House, and a biased liberal media that continues to support even the President’s most heinous coverups, it seems to me that the only real chance is for you and me is to take control and let our voices be heard loudly and often…yes…the American People… who very much want to abide by the Constitution, create efficiency in government, get our energy programs on track, stop the subversive IRS tactics to control political opponents, get the economy and employment energized again, stop the cover-ups on Benghazi and other mistakes, stop the NSA from prying into our private lives, stop the Obamacare catastrophe, stop the business regulation…and oh yes…install a new tax structure called the Fair Tax which would replace the 13,000 pages of tax code and 12,000 filthy rich lobbyists earning $300,000 + per year and spending all their time influencing our Congressmen and Senators for benefit of themselves or their employers.

How is that for a beginning? Are you ready to do your part? And what do you think that may be? What do you consider to be the best way to do your part? As an American Patriot I challenge you to begin immediately to do your very best to save our country and all that we cherish! If we don’t…who will???

Today is a very sad day for this country and so many thousands of people who died and for their bereaved family members…from the attacks on 9/11/2001 and 9/11/2012.  Our collective prayers go to all those who perished and to those family members that survive. May we take actions to select leaders with wisdom to resolve conflict with our intellect, dialogue and compassion before we ever resort to using weapons. Surely we have learned enough in the last 100 years to find a way to build progress and democracy throughout the world without electing leaders hellbent on transforming America. This post focuses on…

The Importance of Effective Political Leadership


The New Yorker



On Tuesday, I went to vote at the local elementary school a few hours before President Obama spoke to the country about Syria, and on my way out I remembered that September 11, 2001, fell on another New York primary day—one that had to be cancelled before it was a few hours old. Michael Bloomberg’s mayoralty began amid the open wounds of the terror strikes, stretched across twelve years of inconclusive wars, and now it’s coming to an end with a debate about another war.

The White House had announced the speech a couple of days before John Kerry accidentally breathed life into a diplomatic initiative with Russia, and by the time Obama turned onto the red carpet leading to the cameras in the East Room, his objective had already been compromised. That’s been the case from the beginning of the Administration’s march to limited strikes: everything crumbles from half-heartedness before it can harden into action. The speech was written as a piece of persuasion, an effort to get the country and the Congress behind the President in standing up for Syria’s children and international norms. So Obama took on the doubts and the questions one at a time. What’s so special about chemical weapons? Why does this matter to American security? What if this turns into a quagmire? Why does it always have to be us?

The ONLY Way to Kill ObamaCare!

Take Action : 9 Calls So Far

The full implementation of ObamaCare will be a disaster for America and the American people. Not only is it a direct assault on our freedom, it also puts the government in the middle of our health care decisions, increases cost, and will inevitably lead to a single-payer system. ObamaCare MUST be stopped and the way to do it is easier than you might think.

Before a bill goes to the floor, the rules for that bill must first pass. Those rules set the stage for things ranging from whether there will be a debate to how long the debate will last. If the rules do not pass, then the bill never makes it to the floor and is essentially dead in the water. THAT is how we stop the liberty-attacking monstrosity called ObamaCare.

We need 35 representatives to vote against the rule that would bring the vote to fund ObamaCare to the House floor. It might sound simple to get 35 out of 435 representatives to vote against the rules, but it’s not. The rules typically pass with ease because voting no on the rules is seen as a slap in the face to leadership. With the future of the American Republic at stake, now is the time for those that we send to represent us to take a stand. After all, they take an oath of office to uphold and protect the Constitution, NOT pledge allegiance to leadership.

Weekend Edition: Between Barack and a Hard Place – Obama’s Options

By Craig Andresen on September 8, 2013 at 5:40 am

Barack Hussein Obama, from behind, has led the United States once great and respected position on the world stage, down the path of destruction.

We have, in 5 years, gone from the world’s only remaining superpower to…

Super powerless.

It didn’t start with Syria and, it won’t end there either.

We must never forget this enemy of you and I and our country. We must elect politicians capable of thought, words and wisdom that protect our country from these terrorists. They will continue to come for us…

How Much Politically Driven Decision Making Can This Country Tolerate?

Sad Statue of Liberty
Statue of Liberty – Ashamed

This country is now at the mercy of an administration that appears to have never learned to make comprehensive, professional, objective and thorough non-political decisions. By contrast,  all good business managers are required to study extensively the process of effective decision making! The ones who are the most effective are those who accomplish the most and achieve the greatest degrees of success.  Instead, our current leadership bases all of their decisions on political values and goals…how can this decision benefit me or my party the most…forget the people…full steam ahead. You think I am being unfair and biased…let me give you just a few examples of “politically driven decision making” that are destroying the fabric of this country!

  • Nancy Pelosi, Leader of the Congress while asking for passing of the incredibly destructive “Affordable Health Care Act” says to Congress and the American People…”we have to pass this Bill to find out what is in it”.  If she were an employee of mine in a business I would have fired her immediately on the spot. The Bill has turned out to be a nightmare and is breaking the back of the economy, American workers and businesses. The overall ObamaCare Act is not in the best interests of the American People…it only provides political power to the government to tax and police with the IRS. This Act needs to be appealed immediately.
  • On the death of (4) Patriots including Ambassador Stephens, Barack Obama and Hilliary Clinton concocted  a false narrative blaming a video that incited what was truly an Islamic Terrorist attack. All key decision makers including the President were aware that this was a terrorist attack within two hours of it’s beginning. President Obama disappeared about two hours after the attack began on that Sunday night and was not heard from until he arrived in Las Vegas the next day for a political rally. Under oath Hilliary  Clinton stated “what difference does it make”. This coverup was clearly for political purposes to support Obama in his election bid in 2012 and Clinton for a future presidential bid. The President and Clinton need to immediately admit to the American People why they took these political actions.
  • Substantial evidence has been presented to the Congressional Investigating Committee that this Administration actively suppressed Conservative American Groups from obtaining 501 C (4) authorization. This move began with Democratic Congressman and Senators and was taken up by the top offices of the United States, especially the IRS. There seems to be little doubt that President Obama was totally aware and supportive of these actions and in my opinion was the one who gave the orders to do so. His very top legal IRS advisor was the key decision maker on these actions and surely he discussed this with the President. Why 157+ trips to the White House by the Head of the IRS if there was not something subversive being accomplished? This is clearly political decision making.
  • The approval of the Keystone Pipeline is considered by most all knowledgeable leaders to be the primary key to resolving this country’s recession and our reliance on Oil Countries in the Mid East. President Obama’s continuing irrational decision to deny this pipeline approval is to sentence Americans to poverty, unemployment, higher gas prices and continued worshiping  at the altar of those who own the oil in the Mid East. We have every resource needed to resolve these issues and the President is making a political decision to deny these solutions.
  • Now we have what has been called the amateurish leadership of “drawing red lines” a year ago…and when it comes time to put up or shut up…he just keeps talking… and made big talk for a week about what we were about to do in Syria. None of it happened of course.  Secretary of State John Kerry makes convincing impassioned pleas to “attack” however… there is no thoughtful plan as to the potential retaliation, results, follow-up, costs, and willingness of the American People to support an effort which seems to be a “lose – lose” action. How can we win by slapping Syria on the wrists? This is like childhood playground bullying where eventually someone will stand up and all will get hurt. Again a political decision where Obama has passed the “drawing of red lines” to Congress and the Senate. I am so very glad that he finally did this…it should have been done the first two days…and hopefully we will have enough intelligent decision makers to stop further action now. America is not the world’s policeman and President Obama is not the world leader. Calmer heads need to take control to avoid continuation of this political decision. This should not be a narcissistic, emotional, politically driven decision.

I could continue with many other examples of political decisions driving this country into ruin which include Fast and Furious, the NSA overreach, the Attorney General’s press investigation overreach, the thousands of harmful regulations being implemented on business, the EPA and their environment overreach, the Labor Department overreach with unions and on and on. Our Congress and Senate are responsible to the American People for prioritizing their actions and protecting us from this political annihilation of this country. I believe that each of us should devote at least one hour each day to calling and emailing the President, The Senate and The Congress and asking them for constructive actions…not political actions! I believe that this is the only way that our voices can be heard! Will you commit some of your day to making phone calls and sending emails to the President, Senate and Congress?
