Trump’s Ham-Handed Policy

Trump's Ham-Handed Policy works better than 60+ years of nuance
President Trump’s Ham-Handed Foreign Policy

While Wolverton’s cartoon is just another of his Leftwing insults to our President, there is some accuracy to this particular imagery. President Trump’s foreign policy is bold, brash, and quite ham-handed in comparison to the status quo that came into being after the end of WW2.

But 60+ years of that status quo has achieved very little. Indeed, the only great strides made in the realm of geopolitics were the result of what were at the time declared be ham-handed actions and policies, e.g., President Reagan’s handling the USSR which helped in their resultant fall.

So, ham-handed? Certainly by what has become traditional standards. But President Trump’s foreign policy has already seen positive results despite best efforts of the Democrats and their propaganda corps.

Modern Trophyism

Modern Trophyism – the perceived need for physical representations of worth or status – within America is a virulent weed that has born foul fruit, as the Liberals’ and Progressives’ response to Mr. Trump being triumphant in the 2016 elections.

True, the need or obsessive desire for trophies or any material representation of others’ validation of one’s worth is and always been a bad thing. Sadly however, the intersection of trophyism with the Liberals’ and Progressives’ obsession with equality of results and ensuring that everyone “succeeds” in anything they do irrespective of their merit in that endeavor has resulted in a pernicious, synergistic cycle of personal and social degeneration.

The Millennials’ ongoing, disruptive protests; their riots; their cry-ins; their need for specialized counseling; and their desire for special dispensation from their duties as students or, in all too rare cases, workers in the wake of Mr. Trump defeating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 elections is persuasive evidence of this pathology.

This Is How You Win

There always seems to be a plethora of questions about how one can win. Indeed, there are whole industries profiteering off of it. The answer is so simple though…

This Is How You Win

That’s the answer. Just as Heather Dorniden did, you get up after you’ve fallen – or have been tripped – and you run faster, try harder. This is how you win, whether it is in sports or life.

What you don’t do is: expect the race to halted and restarted; for any of your competitors to help you up; or to just lay there and blame various and sundry other people, groups, organizations, or whole cultures for your having fallen down in some fashion – even in those rare occurrences when they are to blame for it.

Sadly, this is lesson rarely taught anymore. Instead being a victim is what is taught along with blamecasting whenever one doesn’t achieve success quick enough or at all. Perhaps this is because “winning” requires there to also being losers and that’s “not fair.” Perhaps it’s simply that “validation” of one’s self-image has become more important than being of worth in the first place.

In any event, winning is quite simple. Yet, losing because you’re a victim is so much easier to both do and teach.
