Great Wall of Trump Crumbles

The Donald’s “Great Wall of Trump” was a lie from the beginning, a clever marketing ploy to tap in to the legions of Americans who are deeply concerned about America’s national sovereignty and her obeisance to the open borders lobby.

great-wall-of-trump-crumbles

Nevertheless, this huckster succeeding in grasping the GOP nomination based on lies.

Trump will not erect an impenetrable wall to stop illegal immigration.

Trump will not oppose amnesty.

We knew those two truths before the GOP Convention.

David French put it well: “There’s the bizarre wall fantasy, as if we’re going to get – for free! – some combination of the Great Wall of China and the Maginot Line on our southern border.”

Final Presidential Debate

The Great Wall of Trump is, like the Statue of Liberty, symbolic. It symbolizes the substance of the debate over national identity, national sovereignty, border control, and amnesty.

And, like Trump himself, it is a sham.

In the final 2016 presidential debate, Trump started out strong, definitively declaring, “We need strong borders. We need absolute – we cannot give amnesty.”

Then, moments later, Trump rambling equivocation should give his supporters pause (emphasis added):

“Now, I want to build the wall. We need the wall. And the Border Patrol, ICE, they all want the wall. We stop the drugs. We shore up the border. One of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords, all of the bad ones – we have some bad, bad people in this country that have to go out. We’re going to get them out; we’re going to secure the border. And once the border is secured, at a later date, we’ll make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here, and we’re going to get them out.”

So, Trump pledges to “secure the border” and get the “bad hombres” out (the “drug lords”) and, “at a later date,” figure out what to do with the rest. Sounds a lot like amnesty and a lot like an insecure border.

Shifting Goal Posts

Ann Coulter famously championed Trump for his alleged Great Wall of Trump and his alleged “mass deportation” of millions of illegal aliens.

Responding to the Hollywood Reporter’s question – “What’s the top thing you like about Trump? – Coulter replied:

“In this order: Immigration, immigration, immigration, flagrantly violates all the rules of political correctness, immigration, no more pointless wars, will bring back manufacturing, immigration and immigration.”

Coulter was so cocksure of herself that she declared, “If there’s one thing we’re going to get out of a Trump presidency, it’s a wall.”

In her book, Coulter confided, “Until the bleeding has stopped, there’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies.”

That’s exactly what Trump started to do.

On the very day her hagiography of Trump was published, the Trump campaign began its reversal of his immigration policy positions.

Heather Wilhelm noted, “Trump appears to be breezily selling out his stances on Coulter’s favorite policy topics – those would be immigration and mass deportation – on the very week of her ‘In Trump We Trust’ book release.”

Wilhelm continued, “Trump has spent the last week – again, the week of Coulter’s book release! – signaling there’s no way he’s going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants,” telling Sean Hannity that illegals would have to “pay back taxes.”

Trump explained to Hannity, “But when I go through and I meet thousands and thousands of people on this subject, and I’ve had very strong people come up to me, really great, great people come up to me, and they’ve said, ‘Mr. Trump, I love you, but to take a person who’s been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and their family out, it’s so tough, Mr. Trump,’ I have it all the time! It’s a very, very hard thing.”

As reported in New York Magazine, Coulter quickly expressed the first two stages of grief: denial and anger. In fact, she experienced all five stages in little more than one day.

In denial, Coulter told Extra TV: “I don’t think he really did [soften his immigration position]. He just said something stupid, which he’s done before, and he will do again… he does need a little slap now and then. But no, his policy is to put Americans first on everything. If he does that, he’s fine.”

But Coulter rapidly moved on to the final stage of grief – acceptance. Coulter said, “If [Trump] got rid of deporting illegals altogether, which he is not, it would still be better than any Republican who has run for president in my lifetime.” (Didn’t Ronald Reagan run for president in her lifetime?)

Coulter told the Washington Examiner, “The policy is anyone who’s here illegally is here illegally, does not have the right to be here. We’ll decide whether it’s in our best interest to let them stay or not. Perhaps it is in our interest to let some of them stay.”

So much for mass deportation.

And the wall.

Trump’s magnificent wall was a fraud from the beginning. Indeed, he stole some of his ideas from his biggest rival, Sen. Ted Cruz.

Trump’s own Op-Ed from 2013 refutes his recently manufactured respect for American sovereignty. Trump wrote:  “We will have to leave borders behind and go for global unity when it comes to financial stability.” Sounds an awful lot like Hillary’s “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”

Trump continued: “The future of Europe, as well as the United States, depends on a cohesive global economy. All of us must work toward together toward that very significant common goal.”

Amnesty, yes. Wall, no.

Trump Brought Amnesty Back to Life

Just as his entire presidential campaign can be reasonably interpreted as a sham to give the presidency to Hillary, so, too, his hostile opposition to amnesty appears to have been counterproductive, perhaps purposely so.

Red State’s Neil Stevens spotted a disturbing trend. Looking at Fox News polls from July 2010 to the present, Stevens discovered a dramatic shift in support for amnesty.

According to Stevens, “in July 2010, amnesty was only up 4 points, 49-45.” When Trump launched his campaign, the pro-amnesty cohort gained momentum: “64-30.” What about now? Stevens noted, “In the newest Fox poll, Amnesty’s lead has increased by 22 points since Trump’s campaign launched and now leads by an amazing 74-18 supermajority.”

Stevens concluded:

“Donald Trump’s core campaign issue is to boot the Mexicans out, but over the course of his campaign, nearly half the people who used to support deportations no longer do so. Amnesty has taken an overwhelming lead of support. This is why Republicans are losing: they’ve picked a loser of a candidate who is driving people away.”

Coulter’s Beyoncé Blunders

Ann Coulter stuffed so much nonsense into just one tweet that she enraged Beyoncé fans and kicked reason and decency in the head.

coulters-beyonce-blunders

Coulter’s tweet:

“Beyonce, cited by Michelle Obama as role model for her daughters, sings about ‘pussy curvalicious, served delicious.’ Oh my. I just fainted.”

Sarcasm notwithstanding, Coulter was wrong on the singer, mangled the lyrics, offered a tortured interpretation of those lyrics, and confused sexual assault with a provocatively poetic expression of consensual sex in marriage.

Coulter was as wrong as wrong can be. Again.

  • Coulter cited the wrong singer. The lyrics were rapped by Nicki Minaj, not Beyoncé.
  • Coulter mangled the lyrics. Coulter transposed the first two words, mutilating the rhythm of the rhyme. The actual lyrics are: “Curvalicious, pussy served delicious.”
  • Coulter tortured the interpretation of those lyrics. Defending Trump from allegations of sexual assault, Coulter missed the significance of consensual sex in those lyrics. As reported by Mediaite: “By referring to her privates as something being ‘served,’ Minaj is, in effect, giving her partner her consent, which a woman being grabbed ‘by the pussy’ by a famous man has not done.”
  • Coulter equated sexual talk with sexual assault. Intent upon absolving Trump of guilt for gloating over grabbing women “by the pussy,” Coulter spotlights the word “pussy” (a word she herself frequently uses). However, as Mediaite also observes, “most of Trump’s detractors are not as outraged by the word ‘pussy’ as they are by Trump telling Billy Bush that famous men can get away with grabbing women by the pussy.” It’s assault, not talk!
  • Coulter concluded by mocking Trump’s victims. “Oh my. I just fainted.” No! Innocent women have been sexually assaulted by a rich, powerful, and famous man. Coulter was and remains aghast over Bill Clinton’s treatment of women, yet rushes to Trump’s defense over similar charges.

For Coulter, this is all about ideology, not reality. It is about power, not morality. It is about winning an election, not doing the right thing. Apparently, the end really does justify the means to these people.

John O’Sullivan writes:

“In 2001, before anyone saw the Donald as a presidential aspirant, I wrote a critique in National Review of his interviews with Howard Stern in which he discussed women in terms I thought ungallant. My attack wasn’t political, even though Trump was then a Democrat, but its message was sternly disapproving. … Those interviews (which were on the record) were not very different from the notorious videotape. They were vulgar, crass, shameless, and silly sexual boasting – the kind of thing (second only to intrusive women sports reporters) that prompts me to avoid locker rooms. Above all, however, they were known about and readily available.”

Now that the pussy’s out of the bag, so to speak, Trump’s cadre of female shills have turned truth upside down to salvage what remains of Trump’s reputation. Coulter’s Beyoncé tweet is emblematic of those unsavory efforts.

Ten years ago, Coulter was hailed a Christian heroine despite her often unchristian attributes. Now, many Christians join Coulter in championing a libertine “lout” (Coulter’s word) to save America from itself.

Faith has given way to fear. Why? How? What are we to believe in this season of chaos?

book-cover-1

Ann Coulter pretended to be a conservative long before Donald Trump did. Together, they are endeavoring to destroy the GOP and endanger the future of conservatism.

They will succeed in losing the White House (and, perhaps, both houses of Congress) to Democrats, a tragedy which could have been avoided.

Election 2016 demonstrates the unparalleled importance of character, integrity, and principles. Absent them, rogues like Trump and Coulter prevail.

Trump’s P^ssies

Donald Trump described sexual assault and his female surrogates defend him!

trumps-pussies

Trump said, “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s latest campaign manager, used multiple lines of defense, beginning with denial (10/10/16): “He did not say the word ‘sexual assault.’” But Trump described sexual assault.

Conway also used the he’s-nice-to-me-so-he-can’t-be-bad defense (10/10/16):

“And this is a man I’ve been alone with many times who’s never been anything but gracious and [a] gentleman and elevated me to the top level of his campaign, the way he’s elevated women in the Trump organization for decades, because he respects women.”

Trump propagandist and consigliere, Ann Coulter, used the they-did-it-too defense in multiple tweets (10/9/16):

“Media covered for serial rapist Bill Clinton, who continued his abuse of women & teenaged girls AS PRESIDENT…”

“Media covered for Ted Kennedy (drowned a girl, left her to die, then ran for president ELEVEN years later.”

“It’s not Trump v Bill Clinton. It’s Trump v MSM-covered for Ted Kennedy (killed girl) Bill Clinton (serial rapist) John Edwards(open affair)”

Ironically, both Coulter and Conway were united against President Clinton – seeking to destroy his presidency based, in part, on his sexual exploits – and they are now united against Hillary Clinton – defending the sexual exploits of their new-found savior.

Talk about pussies.

Sacrifice Deferred

In yet another attack against Gold Star Families, Ann Coulter claims (10/5/16): “I must have accidentally been out of the country for a few days because I missed the part where Trump insulted the Khans.” (Coulter continues to put herself and our country to shame.)

sacrifice-deferred

Overlooking his slight against Ghazala Khan for not speaking at the DNC convention, Trump’s very life is an affront to all those who have served in the U.S. military. Consider Trump’s response to a Gold Star Father.

Khizr Khan said: “Our son, Humayun, had dreams … of being a military lawyer, but he put those dreams aside the day he sacrificed his life to save the lives of his fellow soldiers. … You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”

Trump’s response was typically arrogant and boastful. The braggart bragged: “I think I made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs.”

Remember how we all laughed when Gwyneth Paltrow claimed, “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing … It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it.”

Paltrow knows nothing about war and Trump knows nothing about self-sacrifice. Trump’s boast is just as ludicrous as Paltrow’s, equating the pursuit of entrepreneurial profits with giving one’s life for one’s country.

Instead of courageously serving his country, Trump obtained five draft deferments to deliberately avoid doing his duty to God and country.

Having escaped the dangers of battle and potentially death or disfigurement, Trump later spoke of the dangers of living in America (emphasis added): “I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world … It is a dangerous world out there – it’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.”

Indeed, Trump claims that his attendance at New York Military Academy provided “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.”

Donald Trump’s whole life is an insult the Khans and to the brave men and women who daily risk their lives and sacrifice their dreams to defend our freedom. For Trump to equate his hard work with their genuine sacrifice exposes a black hole in his heart and a nonexistent conscience.

Vile #NeverTrump

Let’s look beneath Ann Coulter’s faux humanity. Coulter revealed the real Coulter in an interview for The Drive Home (9/29/16): a phony hypocrite who pretends to like those she hates.

vile-nevertrump

Speaking of conservatives opposed to Trump, Coulter boasted, “But all the people that I had to be talked into liking before because they’re technically on my side, whoa, they’re all gone now.”

Her next words: “I don’t have to pretend I like them anymore. It was all the ones I hated. Gone, gone, gone.”

Hear that, conservatives! Coulter no longer has to pretend to like you. Talk about phony! She really hated you all along!

You are now “gone, gone, gone” down into her personal memory hole. Except, naturally for her, Coulter never forgives and she never forgets.

A split microsecond later, Coulter singled out one name: “John Podhoretz.” (Podhoretz, a former friend and ally, incensed Coulter by shaming her inexcusable behavior.)

A few seconds later, Coulter claimed, “I don’t have to defend the people who were the most embarrassing to our side.”

Who is the real embarrassment, Ann?
