The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.
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.
Despite the Left’s incessant, dogmatic cries for “change” and “progress,” those who are likely Dem voters do strongly prefer consistency in those who they wish to rule over the People… when that consistency is in lunacy, ignorance, and gross abject stupidity. Hence, with Nancy Pelosi being of advanced years, they seem to have arrange for a passing of the torch of lunacy from her to Orcasio-Cortez. 😉
But, to be fair, this is a form of progress. The New Crazy isn’t the same as the Old Crazy. Old Nancy, mad as a hatter or 3rd-Stage Syphilitic or not, always had a certain level of acumen, something that made her a danger. Such cannot be truthfully said for Orcasio-Cortez.
I waited a bit before commenting on the 2018 mid-term elections, partly to give a chance for more state-level results to be made easily available and partly to give myself a chance to see what the consensus fall out was. It was worth the wait because the fall out was both unexpected.
The Left’s Lament
The Left’s party of choice, the Democrats flip the House by a small margin, gained a few Governorships, but lost ground in the Senate. And yet, most of them seem pretty damn angry about the results and feel that they lost, in that they didn’t get their “Blue Wave” or their “fair share” of elected offices across our country.
Essentially, these sorts are ranting because the Democrats overall received more raw, ballots across the nation than the GOP did. Hence, they believe that they should have been given more seats in the Senate, irrespective of the fact that each Seat’s election is a standalone item and not impacted by other election results. Yes, that is correct. They’re whining because their people, concentrated in a relatively few urban areas, didn’t get to dictate how other people’s elections went.
They Think That The Blue Should Rule The Red (Click to Enlarge)
Of course, this is exactly the sort of hysterical and quasi-mindless lamentations one can expect from a group of people who have:
Voluntarily segregated and isolated themselves into a small number of “geographically challenged” of “safe spaces”;
Believe that their desires and perceived needs are those of the entirety of the country – except for those deplorable racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, bigoted Fascists in “Fly Over Country;”
Are only concerned with “minority rights” when said minority isn’t White people – who are, of course, deplorable racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, bigoted Fascists.
Yeah, I guess it sucks for them and to be them. Even when they score some level and form of victory, they lament instead of rejoice because nothing short of their total victory over the American people will suffice.
So, Hillary is testing the waters for another bid at claiming the crown Presidency that she feels was wrongfully denied her. And, both predictably and laughably, the Democrats are responding to this with fear and loathing, even her staunchest constituency, the Vagina Voters, want her to sit down and shut up about being POTUS.
Yes, it seems that old Bernie hasn’t learned his lesson and is considering running for POTUS again in 2020. 🙄 But hey! Bernie’s an avowed Socialist and, given how many times it’s been tried and how many times it’s failed at a great and bloody cost, it’s not too surprising that Bernie hasn’t learned his lesson.
Yeah, that’s the thing; when you’re a socialist and every problem looks like the “Aristocracy” and the Bourgeoisie, the only tools in your kit are going to be a hammer and sickle.
