Trump 2024

After the election, I posted a well-reasoned piece, "Life after Trump," which concluded that because Trump-backed candidates fared worse than Republican governors in Georgia, New Hampshire and Ohio, that Trump cannot win the purple states (although Ohio is red).

I stand behind that post because I am obstinate and no pundit likes to publicly admit he is wrong.

But I was wrong.

He will win and he will win big because Americans are fed up with both parties now.

62 million voted for him in 2016.

75 million voted for him in 2020.

90 million will vote for him in 2024. And this time, Trump supporters will vote early and harvest ballots like a John Deere.

Post-election, Republicans in DC have shown they no longer are worthy of my support. 

12 Republican senators -- including West Virginia's Shelly Moore Capito -- voted to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, which will force Christian bakers to make wedding cakes or face jail and bankruptcy. 

The Dirty Dozen showed they are not RINOs. They are Democrats who vote for tax cuts.

But wait. There's more.

Breitbart reported, "A handful of Senate Republicans reportedly started talks with illegal aliens enrolled in and eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as House and Senate Democrats, along with corporate special interest allies, hope to pass an amnesty in the lame-duck Congress.

"This week, DACA illegal aliens and open borders activists descended on Washington, DC, in their efforts to lobby ten Senate Republicans to join Democrats in passing an amnesty — before the GOP takes control of the House — that would secure them green cards and, eventually, naturalized American citizenship.

"According to Politico, Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Mike Rounds (R-SD), and Pat Toomey (R-PA) held meetings with DACA illegal aliens to discuss potential amnesty plans."

Instead of a wall, we get amnesty? Good thing Utahns went with Mike Lee instead of Egg McMuffin. It was like voting for the right side of Twix instead of the left. 

The treachery continues in the House. Kevin McCarthy is fumbling the ball either deliberately or through incompetence. We may wind up with the black supremacist Hakeem Jeffries as House speaker because of this.

Just the News reported, "House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) says he's disappointed in the negotiations his caucus is engaged in with House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, who has been nominated for speaker.

"The full GOP caucus voted for McCarthy 188-31. He needs 218 votes in January when the floor vote for speaker takes place. Following the vote, the office of former House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Andy Biggs, who had challenged McCarthy for speaker, said conservative members of the Freedom Caucus are in a better position to get their desired rules changes adopted by House GOP leadership."

Matt Gaetz has made it clear he will not vote for McCarthy for speaker. He shouldn't. The party abandoned him when he faced horse-shit accusations of sex-trafficking.

Loyalty is no longer a trait in the Republican Party.

One of the reasons McCarthy has only 218 votes is the Republican leadership failed to turn a red wave victory -- more than half the votes cast in congressional races were Republican -- into a triumph.

Instead, there was an embarrassing pick up of only 5 seats. Good Republican candidates were left to hang out and dry. Lauren Boebert barely won re-election because Republicans in Colorado refused to harvest ballots. That story is repeated across the country.

If not for Lee Zeldin in New York (who flipped 4 seats) and Ron DeSantis (who also flipped 4 seats), Nancy Pelosi would still be speaker come January.

Now for the kicker. That Bozo Tom Emmer led this disaster as head of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Republicans in Congress elevated Emmer the Clown to No. 3 in their congressional leadership, bumping Elise Stefanik to No. 4. Her mistake was being praised by Donald Trump.

In boxing, this is called taking a dive. Why reward such treachery?

Politico reported, "Democrats have ticket-splitters to thank for maintaining their hold on the Senate.

"New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan trampled her Republican rival, even as the state’s Republican governor, Chris Sununu, did the same to his opponent.

"In Nevada, voters helped Democrats seal the Senate majority by reelecting Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto even as they tossed out the sitting Democratic governor.

"And in Georgia, Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock’s razor-thin race is heading into a December runoff after GOP Gov. Brian Kemp coasted to re-election.

"The results are enough to make it look like this year’s midterms represented a return to the old days of de-polarized statewide politics, when large numbers of voters would support one party’s candidate for Senate and the other party for governor."

Governors run state parties. The ticket splitting shows state parties that failed to support their Trump-supporting Senate candidates.

In Nevada, the betrayal affected the House. Republicans were primed to flip 3 seats in Nevada. They flipped none.

But this is not new. Paul Ryan openly opposed Trump in 2016. Working against his party's presidential nominee cost Ryan nothing as he remained House speaker. That showed most Republicans in the House were disloyal.

Republicans did nothing about Russiagate. Republicans were silent about Obama using the FBI to spy on Trump. Republicans failed to protest the Bob Mueller witch hunt. Republicans have not gone to court and demanded the release of the J6 protesters. Republicans did not protest the raid on Mar-a-Lago.

What the heck am I, Don Surber, getting in this relationship? I vote Republican and they act against my political interest.

Millions of Americans are asking the same question of both parties. 

This year, Trump supporters won primaries and the Republican Party leaders did nothing to help them. They were too busy working to re-elect Murkowski in Alaska over a conservative Republican.

Republicans have shown they do not want to Make America Great Again. This no longer is the Party of Reagan. It is the Party of Liz Cheney.

But most Americans do want to live in an America that is great again.

In a world where Republicans built the wall in 2017 like I voted for in 2016, Ron DeSantis would be the standard bearer in 2024 and I would be happy.

I do not live in that world. I live in the world where it is Donald Trump or go home. We all do. We will rise again bigger and stronger than ever before. 

After the election, I did not see it but I see it now.

I apologize.

    2. When you choose the "nice guy" the "promoted favorite" who is fully funded and backed by the swamp you are in fact rehiring the swamp to continue their rule against you. electing more of the same old same old with a new name (with great advertising) is not "change" that will bring about MAGA. one other thing.... the swamp won't come packaged looking, sounding or acting like the swamp, no one would vote for them if they present themselves as their true sold out selves... they will always look and sound like a Ron DeSantis or a Fake Trump Act.

    15. To Black JEM on your 12:55 pm comment:
      I'm usually 100% with you and have great respect for your comments, but I don't get this line of thought you have been expressing lately.

      You say Trump has no path to the presidency and his candidates underperformed. But what are you basing that on? The REPORTED election results? You KNOW there was fraud in so many forms. And if the "harvested" ballots were actually audited, that a very large proportion of those ballots would be invalid. Plus add in the no-audit-trail Dominion machine fraud, and all those key races where the Democrat "pulled off a win" with such tiny margins.

      Black JEM, how can you reach a solid conclusion that Trump and his candidates can't win when you are basing your reasoning on the greatly distorted so-called election "results"?

      I believe Trump and his candidates not only can win, but in most cases DID win.

      Plus, how can you think that DeSantis could do any better than Trump? You are very astute and you must know that the Left will do the same election manipulation against DeSantis. And if DeSantis were 'permitted' to do better, it would only be because they believed him to be bought and not likely to truly rock the boat.

      Trump is a massive vote-getting machine. No one can energize the faithful and draw all the newly awakening constituencies across the country like he can. He has already won the Presidency in 2020 and many more of his candidates DID win a few weeks ago than was officially "reported". Surely you can't think that Kari Lake and Adam Laxalt actually lost?

      Truly interested in your thoughts on this.

Anything short of that and he'll be beaten (again) by any stuffed shirt the left props up against him. And make no mistake: they'll stop at nothing to win. Nothing.

    19. Right on TeaPartyGal!!! What Republicans fail to recognize is 2 things: Trump is so popular because he is a fighter non-politician and Trump supporters will in the main vote for Trump or not at all. Thus running any other politician will be a losing proposition for the tone deaf Republicans. But REPUBLICANS, STICKING TOGETHER, LIKE DEMOCRATS DO, SUPPORTING TRUMP, WILL NOT ONLY WIN, THEY WILL GET A REPEAT OF THE FIRST TRUMP PRESIDENCY WHICH WAS OUTSTANDING!!!

  5. I accept your apology. What more can I add? I thought Trump gave a very good speech in announcing his candidacy, conscientiously avoiding the ad hominem wisecracks on fellow conservatives. The next battle for the Republicans should be for party chairman and deputies. I favor Lee Zeldin.

  6. I'm for Trump , DeSantis and anyone else running and trying to make their case. We have over a year left to decide. Trump had some great accomplishments as President and many significant mistakes. I want to hear how he will correct the mistakes. I don't question his desire to support America first and make America great again, but I want to know how he will deal with the inevitable pushback from entrenched interests.
    My main fear is that even if we harvest ballots effectively and clamp down on any fraud, the establishment weaponized government so much, they will not simply hand it over to their opponents simply because of a vote.

    In races where the Republican candidates downplayed Donald Trump and made the race a referendum on Joe Biden, those candidates mostly won. In races where the Republican candidates embraced Donald Trump, especially those that brought up the “stolen” 2020 election, the race became a referendum on Donald Trump, and those candidates mostly lost. Donald Trump cannot make the 2024 election a referendum on Joe Biden, because he cannot stop talking about himself.

  10. I've become pessimistic too. The election earlier this month sealed USA's slide into socialism+totalitarianism+marxism.

    It's a Uniparty and just to add to Don's R examples in the House, let's add McDaniel will win reelection as RNC Chair.

    But the real D edge in the last two elections is money. How do you think D's pay their volunteers for ballot harvesting?
    1) ZuckBucks in 2020 (But I put that one on Trump. Zuck was meeting with Trump in the White House quarterly in 2019-2020, while funding D's with $400M. Sorry, but Trump's inner circle should have know about Zuck's buttlicking while working actively against Trump. Zuck played to Trump's ego and Zuck won, and BTW I voted for Trump twice.)
    2) Bankman-Fried this year in laundering money through the Bahamas into the DNC & D local orgs.

    Also let's mention Ukraine -- I'll guess that Xiden has laundered $3-5B already for his reelection.

    The only way R's can win national elections again is to cheat, and I'm onboard with that plan.

    No -- the USA is going to hell.

    I am a Floridian who voted for DeSantis in 2018 and 2022, but am disillusioned by his endorsements for 2024 from Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan and donations from liberal billionaires. I see another Marco Rubio, who ran as a staunch conservative opposed to amnesty in 2010 - the only real issued in that campaign - and promptly joined the open borders and amnesty crowd once he got to DC. I see DeSantis doing the same. Endorsements from RINOs like Bush and Ryan and donations from liberal billionaires come with a price.

      1. That cleaning out the opportunities for mischief, frauds, etc., in his state, said opportunities being created by democrat party perfidities, is what a common sense politician does.

      2. Also solving emergency quality events by doing what is also common sense: staying the fuck out of the ways of those who do the jobs needed, supplying our tax payer paid for support of same and thanking, and only thanking, those who fid the work, not patting himself on his tushy for, what, not fucking things up like democrat governors do?

      3. IF desancto is not a slicker version of the swamp's republican factions, then desancto will endorse Trump. Now.

      There will be plenty of feckless, fake conservatives who will try to compete with Trump in the fast approaching primary.

      Trump will slaughter them all. Strip them naked and expose their fugly feckless insides.

      Governor desancto should, for common sense reasons, as well as sincere MAGA dedication, endorse Trump now, and back Trump sans the shiv the swampies want to stab Trump in the back with.

      Otherwise, desanctomoanious shows he is just another swamper wannabe.

  27. We're all making predictions based on our current social and economic circumstances. If things get a lot worse from here, and odds are the will, Trump may very well be the obvious choice for a lot more people than we think. If roving bands of criminals start creating real havoc and inflation gets a lot worse and businesses are failing right and left and the border gets a lot worse, people will turn to the only real, kick-ass problem solver available - Trump. DeSantis would be wise to stick to his knitting and get behind Trump asap, 'cause that train will be picking up steam every time something gets a little worse.

    Here's a real scary one. What if Mexico succumbs to cartel power and money and becomes a failed state. Warlords will call all the shots and have unlimited funds to bribe all of DC ten times over. What if they buy all the ranches along a large section of border by making ranchers offers they can't refuse? How's that going to sit with us? But, hey, it can't happen here, right? I didn't think an actual state government would officially adopt ninety-one genders, either.

    This ain't our fathers' Oldsmobile any more. Independent voters better see the light and get their fat asses off the fence. Indecision can't be an intellectual safe space any more. It's quickly becoming serious decision time.

      And you may be right about Michelle Obama running in 2024 (in your comment to a different post). The thing about Michelle Obama though, is that the day she announces will be her high peak. She will go downhill from there, because she has been able to hide a good deal of the time. Once she starts talking more and exposing her positions, her popularity will drop like a stone. Meaning, she will have nowhere to go but down.

      But, haha, we may not need to worry about her. Hillary will be so consumed with jealous fury Michelle better watch out for Arkanicide.

  32. The Shill Effect:

    Any general election that has more than 2 candidates running for an elected office is being subjected to the Shill Effect.

    The Shill(s) being the candidates not a democrat, nor a republican.

    The votes the shills get are wasted votes, cast by dummies not interested in electing anyone, merely stroking their own egos.

    This lunacy of 'ranked' voting is just a way to work the Shill Effect as if it is not intended for that purpose.

    The math on this is being seen right now, in the Alaska fiasco.

    1 rino = might as well be a democrat.

    1 MAGA = true republican.

    + 2 what the fuck evers.

    Making it easy for democrats/shitbrains to vote for democrat and rino as second choice.

    Making it difficult, unless true republican wipes all of them out with 50%+1 solid votes, to defeat the rino.

    Which is, of course, the purpose of this shitbrain concocted crap.

    Even more dishonest is the no political party primary, open election, such as the mumbling midget mayor of chi-town, richard the mental mutthead daley imposed upon the citizens, some few decades ago.

    While our Constitution defines the means and methods of elections as a Sovereign State authority, this does not mean that the citizens of all states have to submit to dishonest election means and methods, even codified by said state law, in elections on the federal level.

    As there are only these elected offices on the federal level:

    President

    Vice President

    Senators x 2

    House reps x whatever for each state

    The effect upon the entire citizenry of these Untied States is actively being harmed by those states whom have chosen dishonest means and methods for our federal elections.

    The Shill Effect must go.

  38. I left the Republican Party in 1996. In the 1996 Republican primaries, I was a supporter of the ideological precursor to Trump - Pat Buchanan. After Buchanan won the 1996 New Hampshire primary over RINO Bob Dole, I watched Republican William Bennett (who had been the Secretary of Education under Bush 1) on CNN say he would not vote for Buchanan if he were to win the nomination.

    It was then I realized the Republican Party was nothing more than a private country club. I have been NPA (No Party Affiliation) ever since.

  41. I am a free market conservative. I believe a competitive primary can and often does result in good candidates making it to the top. It worked in 2016 anyway.

    For DeSantis to win a primary he will need balls of steel to go against Trump. To beat Trump without losing Trump's voters he will need to not only have big balls, he will also need to have enough tact and diplomacy to earn Trumps respect and endorsement. If he can do that, I will vote for him happily. Until then, Trump seems to be the best name in the game.

      Multiple political party primarys are the only place where the Shill Effect has limited potency, as the culling process is built in to result in only one of the same party can prevail and be the party nominee in the actual election that counts.

  48. Thank you for your apology.

    If you were truly for Making America Great Again, a Patriotic Political Movement that Tens of Millions of Americans are a part of, you never would have fallen for the same old tricks of the media and political establishment. You would have seen it as clearly as we do and never fallen for their propaganda.

    Maybe that's your greatest lesson here. Opening your eyes to realize everything is a shell game and not what "They" want you to see. It's a good first step.

    Rather than focus on which one person will be the nominee, maybe it's time to talk about our political reality in America.

    For many decades we've lived under the false dichotomy of having to vote for Democrats or Republicans. We had to choose the party of our interests or the one with lesser evils.

    The TRUTH is we don't live in the two party system of Reps vs Dems.

    Our reality is that our two party system is US vs Them. This perspective will help many people see things clearly for the first time.

    Case in point, our politicians, in BOTH parties have been sending Billions to Ukraine. Ukraine put the money into FTX. FTX sent it to America's political parties to retain power. The majority of the billions went back to democrats, but if you look closely, it also went to the RINOs such as McCarthy and McConnell to fend of MAGA candidates.

    In other words, the political class used our hard earned tax payer money to ensure they retain power over us.

    It's US vs Them.

    How we decide to approach this battle, and WIN, will determine the Fate of our Nation.

Neither deserves to be in Leadership henceforth. A joint Trump/DeSantis ticket would be best for both the country and the party. I hope they "get it" before this goes any further.

That will not occur right now, but hopefully over time once Ron losses to Don in the primaries (if Ron decides to challenge Don for the 2024 nomination).

    8. I don't answer personal questions from random Russian trolls, sorry. Now go out and play with the other Russian kids, Comrade!

  76. Fraud resulted in the ticket splitting...not voters. The fraud was designed to take out MAGA candidates and leave RINO candidates in place. Example, Kemp in GA. Why would so many R's split their ticket for Warnock instead of Herschel? Makes no sense. Fraud did that to hurt Trump. It worked on you.

  77. So Sorry Mr. Suber, but the damage is done. Your "Never-Trump" mindlessly reckless story gave ammunition to the Fake News media and it ran 24/7 for days! There's a reason that "retractions" run on Page 10, and not the Front Page. Shame on You. You are not forgiven!

  78. I admire this post, yet ai believe Trump is Toxic, especially to swing voters and women. Should he win the primary I’ll certainly vote for him, again. Yet I hope the Florida Governor runs. He’s based and successful. I think he will beat Trump and certainly Biden.

    2. Desanctoemoanious is based, alright, based in the pockets of the swamper repubs.

      Trump being considered to be "toxic" to anyone who considers Trump is toxic to them is a Trump feature, not a fault.

      A winter of biden/obamanation created reality will untoxify all but the most stubborn 'swing' and 'women' voters.

      The reason swing voters are called 'swing voters' is BECAUSE they swing from one choice to another, to another, to yet another, before they finally pick one and then, they may or may not by their own hand, cast their vote.

      These 'women' whom you presume will do the above will not be able to afford to vasilate in the above manner.

      Food on table, roof overhead, clothing their kids, paying utilities, keeping their kids as safe as the natural world allows, etc., Truly Trump your feeble concerns about him.

      The glow on desanctos, polished as he is being touted by the snob repub set of rascals, is akin to buffing up your boner, and strapping on an iron cage cod piece.

      That is what awaits desanctos, from those who are buffing and puffing him up.

      I suspect this you know so well.

    3. Your arguments were just tested, with tragic effect in senate losses in PA, NH, AZ, NV and soon Georgia, again. Trump is a 3 time loser electorally, in 2018, 2020 and now 2022. On the other hand, Desantis crushed Florida and earned record support from independents and crossover voters.
      Trumps a 40 percent guy. He may win the primary but he’s the only Republican who loses to Biden (cough***twice).

    4. He only needs 270 electoral votes to win. With the shift of population to FL, GA fixing it's "voting issues," and a few other things going on you may as well start your pre-grieving process now so you'll be ready when Trump wins.

    5. I was a Republican when Trump was cutting checks to Democrats everywhere, planned parenthood and models he was let’s say indiscreet. I support Republicans, including DJT 3X, up and down ballots with my vote and money. I would happily vote for him again but don’t see 270 with out swing states and voters. BTW it would be nice to see trump get behind the party. Unite the party.

    6. By The Way, it would be better than nice for the republican party to 'get behind' the American MAGA citizens, that fucking Awesome 40%+++ of our nation's citizens, and unite WITH Trump/MAGA, thus, unite with US.

      It would be so much better than nice if these old wet farting republican party 'conservative' cultists would put their vanities up their buttholes, zip their pompous lips, and back Trump/MAGA with as much vigor as they tout the swampers.

      Unite the republican party.

      Make the republican party great again.

      By making the MAGA/Trump Republican Party vigorous!

    7. You and yours are a rump party. Everyone is a rhino or tester or cheat.no addition here which is what successful parties do. No doubt you’d be fine in a little third party disaster but by golly you showed the rhinos 😂

  80. Nice article and I enjoy your writing generally but it isn't clear to me how getting behind Trump makes any of this better. We can cry about ballot harvesting and stolen elections or we can come up with a strategy to win. Trump is 0-2 in the last two elections and carries extraordinary baggage. He also comes with a scortched earth strategy where we eat our own. I don't see how that is helpful.

    We need to stop fighting amongst ourselves and fight the left. That is the biggest move that needs to happen. Need some sort of Republican unity conference. Trump call Disantis and everyone else that had something critical to say about him does not help.

    1. Shallow spirit has shallow mind.

      Is rummy romney one of 'our own to you?

      Is peanut paulie (c)ryan one of 'our own' to you?

      Are all of the swamp snob repubs of 'our own' to you?

      May be that you confuse being owned by with being of 'our own.

      Or may be you are owned by the swamp snobs.

      Or maybe you merely lazy brained.

  81. Don,
    Kudos for being willing to analyze your thoughts as objectively as possible. Well done.

  82. One is either MAGA or not
    Trump is MAGA
    Rinos - Not MAGA
    DeSantis - RINO bought and paid for by RINO big donors

    Lesson learned

    1. I've been MAGA since 1960. So have lots of Americans. Trump simply stepped forward and delivered what we've been asking for.

  83. Reading the extreme comments here I’ve come to the reasoned conclusion that Ultra MAGA is as dumb as a sack of hammers not unlike Never Trump 😂
