We were right, they were wrong, and they have not learned



Remember Megyn Kelly?

She was the Hot Thing in broadcast journalism in 2015 after she asked Donald John Trump about calling Rosie O'Donnell fat.

Four years later, she is out of journalism, and he is the president.

But we all knew that would happen because she was not as interested in the truth as she was in promoting her career. NBC was dumb enough to give her a big contract, and I am glad that she can spend time with her family without worrying about money ever again.

I thought of Kelly as the media scurries and the Deep State rats turn on each other. The past two years have tested our faith in God. The garbage thrown at The Donald -- Russian collusion lies, porn star lies, even koi fish lies -- were a reminder that the beast behind the forces of evil is the Lord of Lies.

Now his servants are sweating the prosecutors out.

We -- faithful readers and I -- hung in there not because we are a cult or ignorant, but because we know the truth about Donald John Trump. He overcame money and the media. He was elected not because he has God on his side but because he is on God's side.

The past four years have been thoroughly enjoyable because at every turn, we were right and they were wrong.

On June 16, 2015, the day Donald Trump formally entered the race, Harry Enten of 538.com declared, "Why Donald Trump Isn’t A Real Candidate, In One Chart."

We thought maybe not, but he has a good platform. Build the wall.

On July 18, 2015, Nate Cohn of the New York Times declared, "Donald Trump’s surge in the polls has followed the classic pattern of a media-driven surge. Now it will most likely follow the classic pattern of a party-backed decline.

"Mr. Trump’s candidacy probably reached an inflection point on Saturday after he essentially criticized John McCain for being captured during the Vietnam War. Republican campaigns and elites quickly moved to condemn his comments — a shift that will probably mark the moment when Trump’s candidacy went from boom to bust."

We did not care.

Conservatives respect McCain's military service, but he was not just a RINO but a back-stabbing RINO. Plus, he called Trump's supporters wacky birds. I think he meant angry birds.

On August 6, 2015, Nate Silver of 538.com declared, "Donald Trump’s Six Stages Of Doom."

He gave our eventual president a 2% chance of winning, despite leading the polls.

We had a good laugh then, and a better laugh today.

Then there was Low-Energy Jeb's wacky bird (nod to McCain) theory that Donald Trump was a plant.

On December 8, 2015, he tweeted, "Maybe Donald negotiated a deal with his buddy Hillary Clinton. Continuing this path will put her in the White House."

We did not worry.

A month later our candidate put a campaign ad on Instagram that showed Hilary with her friends: Bill, Weiner, and Cosby. The sound was Hillary saying, "Women's rights are human rights..."

After he placed second in Iowa, they wrote him off. The Guardian reported, "Donald Trump bubble burst by Ted Cruz win in Iowa caucus."

After he lost Wisconsin in April, they wrote him off again. Time magazine reported, "The Beginning of the End of Donald Trump."

After he sewed up the nomination, they called for the delegates to revolt and nominate someone else.

But we hung in there. When the polls kept showing Hillary with a big lead, we dismissed the polls because we knew they were biased.

When the Billy Bush tape came out, we dismissed it as locker room talk between two men 11 years ago.

When they said he has no chance, we voted anyway. I cast my ballot early because you never know when you will get hit by a bus.

When they said the economy would tank -- Dow futures fell 900 points after his election was announced -- we knew the opposite would happen.

When they said he would sell us out, we knew he would not.

When they said he did not know what he was doing, we knew better.

The economy took off. Conservative judges took office. Regulations rolled back. Taxes fell.

They kept saying he would start World War III in Syria, North Korea, and Iran, we laughed.

Bob Mueller was supposed to do him in. Michael Cohen was supposed to do him in. Michael Avenatti was supposed to do him in.

He's still standing.

The Trumpenfreude List continues to grow because people never learn.

Catholics say The Lord works in mysterious ways, and that is true. But He also works in obvious ways, and occasionally in humorous ways, as with The Donald.

These are the best eight years of our lives. Enjoy.

    Speak for yourself! Geesh another person equating politics with religion.

    Trump can't turn stones into bread no president can. But people like to believe in something for nothing.

    True faith is liberty under Christ. Not political law. But that's what we have because both sides want a free ride.

    The deficit is now running a trillion a year in the red. A trillion in this boom phase of economic growth! Its a disaster in the making. And pundits like this one cheer it all on. Surber has sold out he is no conservative. He's become a fanatic and even cultish the way he always spells out Trump's full name, while the GOP sells out our children's future spending worse than drunken sailors

    The worst of all is the military who can't even balance their books and pass an audit. The last 25 years they have been unable to account for $21 trillion. Its all there in their annual reports. Meanwhile pundits keep whistling past the graveyard.

    Its really pathetic to watch people with their heads in the sand and still clapping away.

    1. And you are doing WHAT about it, exactly?

      Step 3: Made a conscious decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him.

      Give that a shot.

    2. You rail against the trillion dollar annual deficit started by Obama/Pelosi/Schumer et al 10 years ago to reward and enrich Obama's bundlers with an obscene ROI on their 2008 donation.

      The trillion dollar deficit was renewed every year by Obama not providing a budget as required by the Constitution and resorting to continuing resolutions that allowed Dems and RINOs to continue enslaving the taxpayer with debt. The Fed colluded with zero interest for big banks and the government but not consumers who continue to be charged high interest yet paid 0 on savings.

      Obama further saddled taxpayers with 6% interest on non-dischargeable college loans that he then nationalized, sending tuition into the stratosphere.

      Now, instead of focusing on the historic turn around Trump's policies have delivered - making us the only developed nation with a growing GDP - you hammer him for an area that Congress is responsible for - the deficit.

      This is typical. You scream that Trump is an autocrat when he performs within his Constitutional powers and then scream that he's not doing his job when he respects the powers and responsibilities the Constitution delegates to other bodies.

      Give it up, anon. Americans are tired of your disinformation ploys.

    5. You folks are really sad sacks for sure. You call out Osama's spending binge and ignore Trump's and Bush's.

      Just like liberals do. Call out the sins of opponents and ignore your own. Great job.

      So you're hypocrites all of you.

    6. No, no one is ignoring it.

      It's funny though. No matter what party is in office, the spending goes up as does record gov revenues.

      That said, while Obama criticized W for spending, Obama went on a spending spree that made W look miserly.

      Trump has never been about controlling government spending other than to assert some or most of our debt could be taken care of by having more people working and, thusly, paying taxes.

      Such a thing is happening before our eyes. Less people on welfare and more people paying taxes.

      However, more likely this anon is probably just a troll.

    7. Parsing requested, parsing granted:


      Speak for yourself! (Indeed, each is. Including you. So. Fucking. What?)

      Geesh another person equating politics with religion. (Speak for yourself.)

      Trump can't turn stones into bread no president can. (Gee, ya think?)

      But people like to believe in something for nothing. (You'd like to think so.)

      True faith is liberty under Christ. (True faith is trusting that whatever you choose to believe to be true is true because you believe it to be.)

      Not political law. But that's what we have because both sides want a free ride. (No sides want a free ride. Some sides, aka individuals, want their ride paid for by others. Shocking!!!)

      The deficit is now running a trillion a year in the red. A trillion in this boom phase of economic growth! Its a disaster in the making. (Debt is the foundation of commerce. The cost of debt, aka the juice, the vig, the interest rate charged to borrower, is an intinsic element of business. There is no threat of disaster to get your panties all bunched up about.)

      And pundits like this one cheer it all on. Surber has sold out he is no conservative. He's become a fanatic and even cultish the way he always spells out Trump's full name, while the GOP sells out our children's future spending worse than drunken sailors (you are such a drama queen!!!)

      The worst of all is the military who can't even balance their books and pass an audit. The last 25 years they have been unable to account for $21 trillion. Its all there in their annual reports. Meanwhile pundits keep whistling past the graveyard. (Boy, those big numberd sure do seem big. Now add up the sums of all political "donations" gleaned from every source thereof and see just how big the spending has been on promoting politicians' lust for more control of everything.)

      Its really pathetic to watch people with their heads in the sand and still clapping away. (Ahhhhh. Pathos. The favorite emoting of the drama queen. Take solace in the certainty of death freeing thee from all worldly concerns. And, whilst you await the inevitable, continue passing your moments lamenting the very pathos you feed greedily upon. Oh woe is thee!!!!)



      No need to thank me, parsing is my pleasure.

  2. I think of Bryan Adams’ Summer of ‘69 every time you bust that line, Big D!

    I voted for Fritz in ‘84 and told my wife (who voted for Ronaldus) that Reagan would start WWWIII if re-elected. Something happened shortly thereafter; we got out of the military the next year, moved to DC because I liked the Hoyas (no lie), and spent a year pissing away our savings. We’d entered the real world. But timing wise, the Lord was (and still is) very good to us. We got back on our feet slowly but steadily, and wound up at Ronnie’s funeral on a blistering hot day, followed by a dinner at Charlie Palmer’s - which happens to be my youngest brother’s name. That night, online, I read a tribute: Jesus changed my heart, but Reagan changed my mind. Perfect. I pray for similar Damascus Road moments for LibCommies. I tell you, the blessings are REAL, man.

    Super column, Don.

  3. The Perky One, Katie Couric, attempted the difficult, Forward Couric. jumping from daytime TV to prime time. The Perky One failed. Fast forward. Megan Kelly attempts the difficult Reverse Couric, jumping from prime time to daytime. Likewise she too failed. Between the two, I deem Perky Katie the winner.

  4. Nothing better than starting my day with Donnie S and of course his loyal followers comments after, and zregime I is one of many favorites, his vote for Fritz notwithstanding. ;-)

  5. I don't disagree but it's my understanding that the national debt has been a serious problem since Washington's second term

    1. There's a slight error in your history. Yes, we had national debt almost from the beginning. But everyone always seems to forget that one president tried to get us back on track. That was Andrew Jackson who paid off the national debt.

  7. I turned to a friend, who has always been keen on Reagan, and claimed "Trump is my Reagan". Last week, he declared that he changed his mind, and was giving his all-time presidential love to Trump. Now, this is a #MeToo movement I can get behind.

  9. Standing on the side of God's chosen people isn't hurting him, either! I would posit that he is being greatly helped by it, too!

  10. Put me down as another who disagrees with the statement: "The past two years have tested our faith in God."

    Quite the contrary. The ultimate battle between good and evil has now been joined. I used to worry that when that ultimately would happen, I would not know which side was which and I would choose incorrectly. But the battle has been joined and the sides are much more obvious than I ever imagined. On the other side is a bizarre alliance of radical Islam, the transgender cult, abortionists, the man-hating class of feminists, the transnational plutocratic elite. It is obvious they are not the ones on the side of God.

    What truly shocked me, however, is that when the ultimate battle between good and evil would begin to be fought, that one of the most important field generals for the forces of good would be: Donald John Trump.

    Stunning. But true.

  13. Usually the first person to comment on a Trump post is "Anonymous", who I've concluded is a mealy-mouth Soros troll who has a bot running so as SOON as a Don Surber post appears something gutless and negative appears. Like ringing a bell so the rat comes out of his hole to post some obtuse screed against President Trump.

    Ignore the gutless raging brainless Anonymous troll [others put their initials at the end]. It doesn't deserve your time.
