Doctrinal Differences

Doctrinal DifferencesDoctrinal Differences

Yes, there are some very simple, yet very stark and fundamental, doctrinal differences between the Obama Regime and President Trump’s Administration when it comes to overall foreign policy and America’s place in the world at large. We had the Obama Doctrine, which was essentially one of conciliation, self-deprecation, and one long string of apologies to the world at large. Now we have the Trump Doctrine, which seems to one of standing strong, and alone if needs be, and warning our enemies and opponents that they’ll be sorry if they cross America.

Obviously, the differences between the two doctrines is stark. They’re almost polar opposites and quite antithetical to each other. Hence, one coming in immediately upon the other’s being over is glaring to see and jarring to experience. That, however, is not the seminal point of this article.

Please realize that the title of this post, “Doctrinal Differences,” is quite deliberate. This is not a purely political or geopolitical difference. It’s more of a difference in sincerely held beliefs, of particular and differing faiths in what is the right way forward. quite literally, it is a sectarian schism.

That’s very important to realize and internalize because there’s another, far harsher and more potentially dangerous way to describe doctrinal differences – heresy. And any of us who study today’s world and/or history know what happens to heretics…

Hillary’s Foreign Policy

Hillary's Foreign Policy - Same old thinking, same poor resultsHillary’s Foreign Policy

Hillary, her proxies, and her followers like to attack Donald Trump on foreign policy, yet Hillary’s foreign policy was, is, and likely will be nothing more than a continuation of the same old thinking that the establishment has engaged in for the last seven decades. It has and will garner the US nothing but it has garnered us so far, which is little to nothing that pleases the American people.

Honestly, Hillary is trying to sell the American people an insane idea – the idea that we can keep doing the same old things and get a different result. Note that I say that Hillary is trying to sell that madness as wisdom, not that she believes it. A lot of people who own or lease parts of Hillary are heavily invested in maintaining the current status quo when it comes to US foreign policy. After all, they have, do, and would continue to directly benefit from the same old results.

Some Bit Of Truth There

Surrendering to Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions
There’s Some Bit Of Truth There

The political cartoon above has some truth to it, quite a bit of unpleasant truth actually. Obama’s deal with Iran over that nation’s nuclear power and weapons development was in the end a total surrender to the will and whims of the Ayatollahs.

It’s not, however, all truthful. There’s absolutely no evidence to support the hypothesis that either Obama or Kerry would recognize the existence of the Israelis killed by Iran’s proxy groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, much less show any respect for them.
