George Michael Steinbrenner III (July 4, 1930 - July 13, 2010) was an American Nationalist politician and diplomat best known for serving as Secretary of State for eight years (1981-1989) in the Shannon administration. A neoconservative and "bleeding hawk," Steinbrenner was a proponent of "American power projected throughout the world through our economic strength and the strength of our culture, not the boots of our soldiers," as he described his theory in his 1986 address to the Naval Academy graduating class. Regarded as a fiscal conservative and a favorite of defense hawks, Steinbrenner's name was bandied about as a potential Presidential candidate in both 1988 and 1996, and he gave the keynote address at the 1992 National Party Convention in Houston.

Steinbrenner is regarded as one of the most powerful Secretaries of State in modern history, even more so than his former superior Gerald Saunders, and helped influence future Nationalist leaders such as William C. Parcells, Janet Clark, and Tim Johnson.
