Raw Political Coverage and Opinions

Sujit Choudhry is a world-famous scholar who researches in various fields on pressing issues such as politics and constitutional law. For instance, he studies constitutional design as a method of managing transitions from conflicts to peaceful politics, federalism, semi-presidential, bill of rights, minority, secession, and transitional justice among others. Sujit has contributed a lot to Canadian Constitutional Law. One of his recent publications discusses constitutional democracies in times of political crisis.

Sujit analyzes a tweet by Eric Holder who states that the removal or firing of Bob Mueller should be followed by massive peaceful demonstrations by the American people. According to Choudhry, Eric’s tweet is based on two things, the warning and that Holder wants the American people to air their views about the way officials run an office. Sujit insinuates that Holder means that the issue will be solved depending on how American people respond.

Sujit notes that Eric’s tweet is based on ‘constitutional self-enforcement.’ Sujit shows that he is surprised by Eric’s tweet. Choudhry says that Eric who was once a law enforcement officer is not interested in solving issues legally. He says that there is a tendency for those in power to disrespect the law and act above it.

Professor Sujit also gives another example of how people abuse office by stating that most presidents disregard the term limit by trying to change the constitution in their favour. Such a scenario is evident in different parts of the world including both developed and undeveloped nations. Sujit adds that autocrats have high chances of breaking such laws. Some of the strategies used to stay longer in office include suspending elections or declaring a false state of emergency. When such things happen, opponents tend to mobilize citizens to fight for their rights.

Sujit says that Eric’s tweet is a clear indication of a failure in democracy. Sujit Choudhry goes further to say that disregarding term limits could be termed as self-coup to stay more in power. Sujit also says that seizing power without an election is also equally wrong and similar to what Eric’s tweet insinuates. Sujit goes on to demonstrate how democracy has failed in other nations such as Poland. He goes on to say that courts should stand strong to solve such matters accordingly.

The Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy has given him the priceless opportunity to help others realize a better life by giving them the chance to take control of their financial destiny with a successful business.

The triumphs that Nick Vertucci has realized as an entrepreneur has given him the bully pulpit to inform others how they can too.

Dr. Jennifer Walden worked hard and prove herself to become the successful plastic surgeon she is today in a male dominant industry. It is a rarity for women to become a plastic surgeon in this country. There are only a few female plastic surgeons in the country; out of the 8,100 plastic surgeons in the United States, only 851 are women, with only a dozen that live in Texas.

It has always been Dr. Walden’s passion to help other women feel better about themselves after she helps her friend she grew up with. She feels that being a woman helps other women feel more comfortable with describing what they want. She believes that the women that come to her feel more at ease because they do not have to look like the Barbie-doll stereotype that most males view women should be.

It is said that a great business leader should be able to face the challenges of the times without failure, without giving up and falling to the floor begging for a bailout. While Glen Wakeman is not a perfect example of this business leader, he’s still one of the best examples. He’s a business leader who’s brave to open up opportunities where there’s nothing. He’s brave enough to understand the risks of losing in a business that could also win and pay a lot in terms of future payoff. He also understood before creating Launchpad Holdings LLC that to be a CEO is to be someone who people can look up to, and that’s why a CEO like him has no choice but to be virtuous, ethical and a man with skin in the game.


Skin in the Game and CEO Glen Wakeman

Skin in the game means being held responsible for one’s opinions, decisions, actions and ideas. If you don’t pay for the consequences of your ideas, then you don’t have the skin in the game that requires you to be an ideal leader. Fortunately, Glen Wakeman takes responsibility in his words, as he shares them in his insightful blog articles and consultancy work for various businesses. His expertise in emerging markets has also been instrumental in not just growing companies under his helm, but also making them understand the core of starting a business: share prosperity to others so that they may enhance their quality of life.

Right now, what takes up most of Mr. Glen’s time is the mentoring work that he does for various C-level executives, which include Sitter Bees and Dreamfunded. The write-ups that he does also help companies enhance their performance and over-all rating across the competition. Clearly, the work that Mr. Wakeman does is invaluable to many, and that’s why his Launchpad Holdings company seems almost to be a necessity for those who need guidance in starting a business or expanding in a scale that had not been tried before.

The work right now of Mr. Glen seems to focus on also making companies understand the patience required to wait for the money. It is essential for these companies to know that profit comes only after valuable services rendered.



     The current political climate favors Democrats greatly and that isn’t hard to understand. The recent trends in politics have shifted us towards big money and less power in the hands of the voter. That’s something that has ignited a fire under many people and gotten them out to vote. End Citizens United, a PAC devoted to fighting the notorious Supreme Court decision, has led the pack. They are endorsing candidates they believe have the best chance of making a change this November. With so many Republicans vulnerable and an unpopular president, it’s likely we will see this swing in the right direction.

The Citizens United ruling was absolutely one of the worst mistakes made in the history of America. It has allowed corporations the power to do things that are unspeakable and it has laid the foundation for some of the most horrific things we see happening now. We would likely have not seen the rise of Donald Trump or the others who have followed him if not for Citizens United ruling. It provided a framework that allows big money into politics as a form of free speech. The effects of giving free speech to corporations leads towards a sort of feudalism. The rich find ways to dominate and take over those around them.

Democrats have the potential to make some big successes if they manage to take what they’ve been given and make the most of this opportunity. We have seen in recent elections such as Conor Lamb that the country is headed towards a new direction. People want to take back the country and they need leaders who are going to help take big money out of politics. This is just the first few steps that will actually get us towards making that happen.

The upcoming November elections are going to be massive and the overall impact will be felt for some time to come. If Democrats can flip the House or Senate, we can finally see politics go back to what it was. The changes won’t happen overnight but they will be substantial and they will be important. End Citizens United has gotten pretty far by trying to make this an important cause. Along the way the PAC has picked up allies who also want to see this happen. That work combined is going to make some changes that nobody will be able to ignore in the long run.

Sheldon Lavin is among the people with successful career life today. He happens to be the CEO of OSI Group currently and he aims at taking the company to greater heights in terms of organization and management. Whenever OSI Group is mentioned, most people have the food and meat products in mind. In Illinois, the company is based in Aurora. Food service and retail sector are what the company is mainly known for. It is amazing to note that Lavin was an outsider when he joined the company. His active involvements in the company’s operations were evident in 1970. By then, the company wasn’t known as the OSI Group, but it was Otto & Sons Company that Otto and his sons owned.

The potential that the company had in the 1970s was unmatched. The company had a chance to supply hamburgers to McDonald Corporation in large quantities. Nonetheless, this was possible since there were some financial hitches that Lavin had to come and correct. The kind of growth the company realized when Lavin came in as the financial advisor was great. Lavin also worked hard to ensure the company could get adequate funds from the reputable financial institutions.

Lavin realized in 1975 that there is more he could offer to the company besides financial advice. He played a major role in ensuring the company got a good share of investments and business overseas. After Mr. Otto retired, Lavin opted to work with the left sons and this saw the company’s name change to OSI Group. Lavin worked harder to ensure the company’s clientele base in Illinois became broader and even spread to the rest of the world. Amazingly, the company was able to supply its products to Asia, North America, Japan, Europe, Australia, Philippines and South Africa. This great move could not have been possible if Lavin was mean to his leadership skills and management abilities.

Since the company had spread in several continents under his leadership, Lavin took over the company by buying a controlling interest. He hasn’t just changed the way food processing in the company is done, but also the view many people have over the processed products. He has made the complex supply chain management possible by specializing in large-scale operations. Lavin has earned the company this great success because he is always open to working with ambitious people and like-minded individuals. He has enhanced the company’s collaborative culture through teamwork and this has helped him reduce employee turnover rates.

According to Vijay Eswaran, leadership is not all about telling people things that they should do. Eswaran says that good leaders should know how to serve others. People have different definitions of servant leadership. However, Vijay says that he learned the meaning of servant leadership from his father. He watched his father work hard by focusing on the things he did best and develop people. Vijay says that being a servant leader means working selflessly for the bigger picture.

Vijay Eswaran grew up reading philosophies and life histories of iconic servant leaders such as Mother Teresa, South Africa’s Nelson Mandela, and Mahatma Gandhi. These people became extraordinary leaders as soon as they discovered the value of serving others. Some of the qualities that make real servant leaders include care, clarity of vision, core values, willingness to sacrifice, and commitment to growth.

Vijay says that he believes that firms are not defined by marketing or the products they offer. The true assets of any given company are the employees. A leader who offers the best to employees does not have to worry about customer service. If employees are well taken care of by their leaders, they also work hard to ensure client satisfaction.

Servant leaders have a well-defined vision of what they want to achieve in future. The leader should then give employees details of what they want to achieve. The entire team should then be unified to attain the common objective. All employees should understand their roles so that they feel that their part is important in achieving the overall goal.

Vijay Eswaran adds that the core values of a leader help to define them as a servant leader. Such core values can also be used to define the organization. Some of the core values embraced by servant leaders include acceptance, truth, respect, and honesty among others. A great leader should be committed towards these values.

Servant leaders also invest time in people. Giving people time helps to grow them personally and professionally. It also shows that the leader is genuinely interested in their lives outside of work. Servant leaders ensure that people develop in terms of career, skills, and knowledge. Another important thing about servant leaders is that they sacrifice things that matter to help others succeed.

One of the desires of many people who are working is that they make extra money. However, many people hope against hope that they are going to get that raise that is going to make them rich from their regular jobs. One major issue with this is that people are going to be disappointed for a long time. Instead of hoping that the employer is going to increase the amount of money that is given on the next paycheck, it is better to look for where money is more readily available. This is where Market America comes in.

One of the advantages people have when they start working with Market America is that they have unlimited income potential. One of the reasons that they have this unlimited potential is that they have a different way of paying people. They pay people based on the sales they make for them as opposed to paying them by the hour. The best thing about this is that people are less likely to get fired doing the type of work they are doing for Market America. They just have to figure out a way to market to the target audience so that they will be able to generate income.

One of the best things about generating income for Market America is that they not get a lot more money from selling, they also get passive income and residual income. In other words, the money that they gain from Market America can be recurring. All that is required is minimal work after a while. The truth is that it can be a lot of work in order to set up the passive income. However, people that are passionate about what they are doing are going to enjoy the journey of getting everything set up so that they will be able to profit.
