On Aug. 21 of last year, I referred to Donald Trump as a warrior extraordinaire who "is the prototypical, archetypal and testosterone-driven alpha male who rules by the sheer force of his personality, imposing physique, quick wit, mastery of repartee and almost hypnotic control over his gathering masses of adoring followers. He is Attila to the Huns, Henry V to the outnumbered English army, Winston Churchill to desperate allied forces and now our fearless leader against the pagan forces of progressivism and political correctness. He is the unapologetic, quintessential warrior male of yore capable of vanquishing any and all opposition in his way."
At the time, many readers saw a grain of truth amid this apparent extravaganza of overstatement. However, after Trump's miraculous and devastating annihilation of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party on Nov. 8, we see that he has graduated from warrior extraordinaire to warrior king of the United States, the West and indeed the entire free world.
Much to the anguish of infantile and weepy Miley Cyrus, Trump was the proverbial "wrecking ball" who left nothing but rubble and devastation in his relentless and unstoppable march to the White House. He literally vanquished anything and everything in his way in a kind of Sherman's march to the sea – that is, dispatch their enemy personnel, destroy their infrastructure, and make sure that they "never rise again." Yet, once the enemy is thoroughly nullified, become a compassionate apostle of peace to those living under your new set of rules.

While Hillary was spending millions of dollars on ads and the "ground game" engaging in girlish groupthink and spouting the mantra "stronger together," Trump was imposing the firepower of his own individual will and intellect upon anything and anyone in his way.
That is the kind of leader our country needs in dealing with the likes of Vladimir Putin, Bashar al-Assad of Syria, the ayatollahs of Iran, the psycho Kim Jong-un of North Korea and most of the world's "not PC" leaders. The last thing we need is a bunch of weepy, emotionally fragile, safe-zone-loving, politically correct "girls" going up against this really bad bunch of dudes. Hillary Clinton and her simplistic "it's my turn" campaign looks downright silly when viewed in the context of our increasingly threatening world ruled by very dangerous and trigger-happy men.
I am personally amazed at how Donald Trump has single-handedly engaged and then prevailed against the numerous forces set against him. Of course, he has been strongly supported by family, a small coterie of followers including Carson, Gingrich, Giuliani, Christie, Priebus and the masterful work of campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. Nevertheless, Trump himself is the fundamental driving force behind the movement- dare I say revolution?
Sixteen very talented and able politicians engaged Trump in the primaries, and he prevailed over all; like yapping dogs the mainstream media has nipped at him incessantly only to be left in complete shambles; Megyn Kelly took a few cheap shots, and now her ratings and future at Fox hang in the balance; a band of "Never Trump" Republicans tried to take him on only to fall in line at the last moment; and, the powerful Marxist and leftist Republic of New York arrayed against Trump and suffered a rare loss.

The most delicious of Trump's devastating victories was over the entire Democratic Party which was left suddenly and ruthlessly leaderless, confused, hopeless and mired in an agonizing world of what might have been. Not only did the party's distaff dreams of a new feminist Eden go up in smoke, but, in bitter irony, the loss is largely attributable to the monumental flaws of Hillary herself and her cheating handmaidens Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Donna Brazile. The party must also ponder whether marriage-challenged Huma Abedin contributed to the loss as well. Try as they may to externalize blame, their wounds were mostly self-inflicted.
Most of the world's powerful leaders are strong men of the warrior class, and they only respect other "warrior kings" with a strong command presence – whether they be a man or a woman. Margaret Thatcher was a tough-as-nails leader who readily earned the respect of her male peers. She did not seek out safe zones, weep and scream when challenged, play the gender card, or have the group mentality of the Hillary crowd. She was not made equal through political correctness; she was equal, and she let everyone know it. When the time comes, I will vote for a woman and lady like that.
I am both relieved and elated that Trump is in a position to restore traditional values, protect Christianity, move the government and country in a conservative direction, drain the swamp of Democratic malfeasance and corruption, put the mainstream media in its place and to finally consign political correctness to the dustbin of history.
Moreover, I am encouraged that the grand warrior king of the East (Putin) is starting out on good terms with his counterpart in the West (Trump), and we should all hope and pray that their pleasant and respectful start will pay positive dividends in the long run.
