.@AnnCoulter Lies For 25 Years About #SCOTUS Cases and Nominees!

With the not unexpected passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, provocateur Ann Coulter is again stridently seeking relevance by trying to become the voice for determining her replacement on the high court.

DON’T TRUST ANN COULTER!

Since RBG’s passing, Coulter has gone on several Twitter rants in support of the only person she considers qualified, the 58-year-old Miguel Estrada. Why? They have been BFFs for 25 years and he shares her views on immigration.

Coulter’s rants include incessant attacks upon the character of Amy Coney Barrett – solely because she is a Catholic (although her being female probably also figures into the equation). Coulter falsely claims that Barrett’s Catholic faith would influence her decisions on the death penalty. The American Spectator, a one-time ally of Coulter’s, also rejects Coulter’s absurd claim.

(Coulter has opposed the Catholic faith, often with vigorous vilification, for decades.)[1]

This isn’t Coulter’s first attempt at subverting the Constitution for political purposes.[2]

Elián González

The Elián González case became international political theater during the 2000 presidential race. It rekindled the Cold War in miniature. Coulter fed into that political hysteria by telling lies of her own, lies which fit into her own ideological sensibilities. Those lies included turning a Supreme Court decision on its head, claiming it said the exact opposite of what the Court decided.[3]

The heart and core of Coulter’s case for denying Juan Miguel González custody of his own son rested on Coulter’s decades-long belief that fathers have absolutely no rights or responsibilities to their own children except through marriage.

On talk TV – contrary to what the law actually says – Coulter continually insisted that putative fathers have no rights to their children: “The law used to account for these things by saying the father doesn’t have rights to a child unless he’s married to the mother. That’s how a man can claim his heritage and his claims on a child. … That’s how a father gets the right to children, by being married to the mother.”[4]

Coulter reaffirmed – again and again – that only marriage confers custodial rights: “First of all, the idea that a father has rights to a child by donating sperm; No! A father gains rights to a child by being married to the mother. … He has absolutely no rights to the child! Fathers gain rights to children by marrying the mothers.”[5]

The only problem with Coulter’s claims is that they are false. The law has always upheld the biological rights of fathers, irrespective of whether the child is born out-of-wedlock.

Parental Rights

Coulter’s view of parental rights was her principal argument to separate a son from his father, but that core point of her position, that central concept, was an outright lie! To buttress that lie – which she has consistently expressed for over twenty years – Coulter lied about a Supreme Court ruling which any layman can read and see that it reaches the exact opposite conclusion. Coulter wrote:

“Let’s just consider the initial presumption that a father gets custody of his son. The law is indeed clear, at least to this extent: That ‘law’ refers only to legitimate children. … The Supreme Court last weighed in on the legal rights of unwed fathers in 1989 when it cut off all of the father’s rights to his child, including visitation.”[6]

In her essay, Coulter literally reversed the decision of the Court, falsely claiming it denied those custodial rights. Contrary to Coulter’s fiery opinion, the law says otherwise. The Supreme Court, in five cases, upheld the principle of paternity rights for putative fathers. Those cases were all cited in the Supreme Court case cited by Coulter.

In a rather remarkable display of truth twisting, Coulter took this Supreme Court case which affirms the custody rights of natural fathers and declared it the definitive denial of those rights![7]

The father in Coulter’s cited case was not denied parental rights due to illegitimacy but because his claim of fatherhood was filed after the filing deadline. That father had failed to assert his rights within two years of his daughter’s birth. Illegitimacy was never the issue. The Supreme Court has consistently confirmed custodial rights of natural fathers, both in principle and in practice. So, the case Coulter cited says the exact opposite of what Coulter claimed. (This would become a pattern for Coulter.)

“Bald assertions about the very question under dispute,” Coulter once wrote, “is an odd method of argument,”[8] yet that is precisely what Coulter did (and continues to do). According to Coulter, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion; everyone is not entitled to his own facts.”[9] Apparently Coulter is not above making up her own “facts.”

Strangely (or not, for Ann), Coulter later asserted, “Apparently that’s the way constitutional analysis goes these days. You determine, we’re all Ruth Bader Ginsburg now: Whatever you want the Constitution to say, that’s what it says, miraculously. Well, that has never been me!”[10]

Sorry, Ann, but you are the allegedly “conservative”[11] Ruth Bader Ginsburg!

Birther Coulter Births More Lies

In 2015, Ann Coulter led the charge of those seeking to crush a Cruz candidacy with a lie!

When she thought she could foist Romney on us again in 2016,[12] Coulter began to attack Cruz on his citizenship. With Cruz posing a serious threat to Trump, her new-found soul-mate,[13] Coulter shifted into high gear, stridently claiming Cruz was ineligible to be president.[14]

Erstwhile anti-birther Coulter became the premiere birther attacking Ted Cruz. Why? She wanted to scuttle Cruz’s presidential ambitions and stop his burgeoning support before her own Savior, Trump, lost the nomination.

It’s Really Not About Ted, But All About Ann

Seemingly on emotional steroids, Coulter turned her attack dog persona on Trump’s most formidable Republican foe, all the while professing an “Ah, shucks, I don’t want to do this, but it’s the right thing to do” attitude even has she stuck a shiv in Ted’s side.

Coulter dodged claims that she changed position on Cruz’s eligibility solely to support Trump by asserting she took her current position prior to Trump’s candidacy. That is a red herring.

Coulter wrote: “I said so long before Trump declared for president, back when Cruz was still my guy.”[15] Coulter claimed, “It’s not that I want him not to be a Natural Born Citizen.”[16] Except, Coulter’s later claim is patently false and demonstrably untrue.

In reality, Coulter was obsessed with recruiting Romney for president, so much so that her close friend, Sean Hannity, was aghast at the depth of her obsession. Cruz was becoming an impediment to Coulter’s plans for Romney.

Coulter first sought to disqualify Cruz as a presidential contender to force her idol, Mitt Romney, to run again[17] in 2016. At that time, she wanted Romney – and only Romney![18]

Later, she wanted Trump – and only Trump![19]

Later still, Coulter boasted that she still wanted a Trump-Romney ticket: “In fact, my ideal ticket is Trump-Romney. That’s what I’m really hoping for. That’s the dynamite combo.”[20]

Bob Woodward said, “History is character; behavior is character.”[21] Coulter’s history, and her behavior these past two decades, proves Coulter’s own lack of character.[22] Coulter lied about the Constitution and Supreme Court cases during the 2000 election[23] and she did the same thing during the 2016 election cycle.

Nevertheless, Coulter hypocritically attacked those who correctly interpret the Constitution, lamenting, “It’s kind of annoying me that we are all Ruth Bader Ginsburg now and people interpret the Constitution based on what they want the Constitution to say, not what it does say.”[24]

1608 or 1790; Blood or Soil?

Coulter even emulates Justice Ginsburg, who infamously used contorted and convoluted reasoning to achieve her desired partisan objectives. Andrea Widburg notes, “The worst thing about her decisions, though, was how she misused case authority to create new principles out of whole cloth.  Nothing shows that more than in her determination to bypass our American Constitution and law and look to foreign constitutions, laws, and customs.” Coulter echoes Ginsburg’s approach.

According to Coulter, “In the U.S., also in Great Britain and in France, citizenship is determined by soil. … Congress can write laws for naturalization. That is also in the Constitution. But if Congress has to write a law to make you a citizen, you’re not natural born. … It is determined by a law written by Congress; not by the common law, not by the Constitution. So that is not natural born.”[25]

Except, the law written by Congress (and empowered by the Constitution) establishes who is natural born! In 1790, Congress established citizenship by blood.

Coulter asserted: “The phrase ‘natural born’ is a legal term of art that goes back to Calvin’s Case, in the British Court of Common Pleas, reported in 1608 by Lord Coke. The question before the court was whether Calvin – a Scot – could own land in England, a right permitted only to English subjects.”[26]

The case which Coulter cited – Calvin’s Case (1608) – has to do with English subjects, not citizens. Americans are not subjects. Our Founders took those portions of English common law with which they agreed and modified or dispensed with those portions which were incongruent with the new American constitutional system that they were creating.

Chief Justice Joseph Story wrote, in an 1829 Supreme Court opinion (emphasis added): “The common law of England is not to be taken, in all respects, to be that of America. Our ancestors brought with them its general principles, and claimed it as their birthright; but they brought with them and adopted, only that portion which was applicable to their situation.”

Coulter claimed that a 1608 case in England is the basis for America’s definition of Natural Born Citizen.[27] Consequently, Coulter asserted that the 1790 law enacted by Congress is irrelevant. Does Coulter seriously believe that a 1790 American law enacted by the Founders is nullified by English case law from 1608? Really?

According to the Yale Journal of Law and the Humanities (emphasis added), “In Britain, even before Calvin’s Case, various acts and proclamations provided that a child born out of the territory of England could also be a natural-born subject, as long as the child’s parents owed allegiance to the sovereign of England. This is an example of the jus sanguinis [blood] operating alongside the jus soli [soil]. In the history of both Britain and the United States, the jus sanguinis has always been established by statute, never by judge-made law.

The 1790 statute by Congress, which Coulter dismissed as “irrelevant,” precisely establishes the principle of right of blood which Coulter denies![28]

The Congressional Research Service published its findings on this issue (emphasis added):

“From historical material and case law, it appears that the common understanding of the term ‘natural born’ in England and in the American colonies in the 1700s may have included both the strict common law meaning as born in the territory (jus soli), as well as the statutory laws adopted in England since at least 1350, which included children born abroad to British fathers (jus sanguinis, the law of descent).”

Cleverly, Coulter very subtly suggested that those defending citizenship by blood are nascent Nazis, saying (emphasis added), “The two methods are soil or blood. Curiously, in Germany, it’s, it’s blood.”[29]

Coulter Lied About Yet ANOTHER Supreme Court Case

Coulter wrote: “As the Supreme Court said in Bellei, a case about the citizenship of a man born in Italy to a native-born American mother and an Italian father: ‘It is evident that Congress felt itself possessed of the power to grant citizenship to the foreign born and at the same time to impose qualifications and conditions for that citizenship.’”[30]

Coulter used this case to prove her contention that Cruz is ineligible, when, in fact, it proves the opposite!

As noted in ROGERS v. BELLEI, (1971) (emphasis added):

“Section 301 (a) of the Act, 8 U.S.C. 1401 (a), defines those persons who ‘shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth.’ Paragraph (7) of 301 (a) includes in that definition a person born abroad ‘of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States’ who has met specified conditions of residence in this country.”

The plan thus adopted by Congress with respect to a person of this classification was to bestow citizenship at birth but to take it away upon the person’s failure to comply with a post-age-14 and pre-age-28 residential requirement. It is this deprival of citizenship, once bestowed, that is under attack here.”

“The very first Congress, at its Second Session, proceeded to implement its power, under the Constitution’s Art. I, 8, cl. 4, to ‘establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization’ by producing the Act of March 26, 1790, 1 Stat. 103. That statute, among other things, stated, ‘And the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States.’” [Subsequent statutes extended it to either a citizen mother or citizen father.]

Ted Cruz Is Eligible!

Gary DeMar is perhaps the foremost expert on America’s Founders. DeMar offered a history of originalist thought on Natural Born Citizen and reached this stunning conclusion: “Ted Cruz [is] more of an American than some of the drafters of the Constitution.”

A chagrined Coulter lashed out: “Imagine what nightmare a Cruz presidency would be! This is now the second time Cruz has forced me to research something his supporters were lying about – the last time was on Cruz’s alleged eligibility to be president, despite being born in Canada. (He’s not a ‘natural born citizen,’ but I enjoyed reading all those Supreme Court opinions!)”[31]

Sarah P. Condor-Fisher at Politichicks disagreed: “the People of the United States have the power to recognize a ‘naturalized’ citizen as ‘natural-born’ at any time – by a Congressional declaration of ‘eligibility’ as to the particular person (Art.1, Sec.5), by means of legal interpretation from the Supreme Court – or, by a Constitutional Amendment.”

But for Coulter, this is not just political, it is personal. Seeing herself as the embodiment and perfect representative of America – the “Settler” – she could not brook an interloper gaining the presidency. Moreover, she wanted to be in control of the process and the outcome of the election.

Coulter Defames Supreme Court Nominees

With the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, conservatives searched for a constitutionalist to replace him. Thomas Hardiman and Raymond Kethledge were floated as a possible replacement. Coulter chose to defame them in order to get her preferred nominee elevated to the highest court in the land.

Again, immigration was the crucial factor in her decision making. Either she doesn’t understand the law as well as she thinks or would have us believe) she does, or she deliberately defamed him (which has been a pattern of behavior she has exhibited for some 25 years).

Raymond Kethledge

Coulter defamed Raymond Kethledge in a column and a series of tweets.

Coulter concluded that Kethledge is an open borders zealot and – without evidence of any kind – that he would betray his oath of office by deliberately misjudging cases to that end.

(Why? Coulter would surely subvert the law, if given the chance, to pursue her own agenda. She has numerous times in the past.)

Coulter presumes Kethledge lacks integrity and would not keep his oath of office because she wouldn’t.

Coulter tweeted:

  • Finding that grand-theft auto is not a theft (AS LONG AS THE CRIMINAL IMMIGRANT GETS TO STAY!) kind of shoots down to the claim that Kethledge is a constitutional textualist.
  • And unlike most ppl taking sides on S. Ct nominees I don’t know any of them personally.* But I can read! *Except Kethledge, which is how I know he’s opposite of Trump on immigration.
  • FALSE! I was a lonely voice in the woods warning you about Judge Roberts. Also opposed Miers — while being attacked for it on Fox News. Now, I’m telling you Kavanaugh is stellar.
  • No commitment to originalism or religious liberty or even overturning Roe will mean a hill of beans in a country that becomes Mexico because of open-borders zealots like Kethledge. See California.
  • That’s a direct quote from the TEXT of the law Kethledge was applying, 8 U.S.C. 1101 – “Definitions”
  • Can anybody figure out what this “text” means? “The term ‘aggravated felony’ means— (G) a theft offense (including receipt of stolen property) or burglary offense for which the term of imprisonment at 5 least one year”

Matthew Downer responded to Coulter:

Kethledge applied the law CORRECTLY.

The definition: “for which the term of imprisonment is at least one year.”

“He was sentenced to a three-year SUSPENDED sentence.”

He “served LESS THAN ONE YEAR in the county jail.”

Thomas Hardiman

Coulter also defamed Thomas Hardiman, again, with the exact same purpose – to get her preferred judge nominated.

As reported by Law and Crime, Coulter attacked “Third Circuit Judge Thomas Hardiman, and accused him of being “subsidized” by liberal philanthropist George Soros.”

Coulter tweeted:

As noted by Law and Crime: “What the heck is up with that? Well, it’s not entirely accurate.” (See article linked above for more details.)

Leonard Leo, Coulter’s close friend and President of the Federalist Society, said (emphasis added), “Tom Hardiman … is very much in the mold of Justice Scalia, well-schooled on the doctrines of originalism and textualism, and he is very experienced.”

Ann Coulter’s #Resistance Movement

Coulter was part of the #Resistance long before it came into being. Just ask Sen. Spencer Abraham, whose policies she subverted while she was working for him on the Senate Judiciary staff in 1995-1996. Coulter boasted of creating plans and giving information to her colleagues to thwart Abraham’s immigration agenda.

Coulter is ever ready to put her thumb on the scales of justice or use a rhetorical fist to achieve her desires. Her end justifies her means.

With every election cycle and every Supreme Court nomination, Coulter becomes #FakeNews.

Over twenty years ago, Coulter said, “I’m perfectly willing to engage in wild speculation and unsubstantiated rumors[32] and her claim is even more true today.

Coulter has become a law unto herself, abandoning principles willy-nilly. She perverts language and subverts the law to undermine the election process, election results, and the will of the people. (See Never Trust Ann Coulter – at Any Age.)
Coulter was Strzok before Strzok became Strzok.

.@AnnCoulter’s Unhinged Meltdowns over Trump!

Over Memorial Day weekend, Never Trumper Ann Coulter had a totally off-the-wall Twitter meltdown[1] over one Trump tweet.

Two days later, Coulter had an interview meltdown justifying her lunacy over the weekend.

Highlights from Coulter’s Twitter Meltdown

Highlights from Coulter’s Interview Meltdown

Analysis of Coulter’s Rationale

Let’s look at just one of Coulter’s arguments.

First, Coulter introduces “COVID” (or, she prefers, “Wuhan flu”), as if the Coronavirus pandemic has anything to do with Sessions or the Alabama election.

Second, Coulter claims that the pandemic gave Trump a chance to do something.

Third, what was that something Trump had a chance to do? Well, “to be a decent, compassionate human being.” But, isn’t that what Trump has always been throughout his presidency and, certainly, throughout this pandemic?

Fourth, Coulter indicates that Trump “pretending to be” a “decent, compassionate human being” would be enough for her. So, for Coulter, pretense is enough. Image is more important than reality – an ethos she has certainly lived by throughout her career.

Fifth, Coulter claims, “he couldn’t even do that,” without providing a shred of evidence for her bald-faced lie.

Sixth, in what way did Trump fail to be a “decent, compassionate human being?” Coulter cements her claim to the COVID crisis, but it has nothing to do with the pandemic. No, rather, Coulter is upset at Trump’s political calculus regarding Sessions and Alabama.

Seventh, so Trump is evil because Trump disagrees with Coulter!

Coulter’s meltdowns are in total agreement with her decades-long depiction of the whole of life as being a battle between good and evil, with Coulter always being in the vanguard of what is right, true, and noble. (Reality proves otherwise.)

Trump has, in fact, been battling the forces of darkness arrayed against him since before his inauguration. Remember #ObamaGate, #SpyGate, #DeepStateCoup, #Russia Hoax, #FakeImpeachment, and all of Coulter’s own attacks on Trump?

Coulter’s blind hatred and rage threaten the very outcome she purports to desire: #MAGA!

Coulter’s ever-increasing wackiness is recounted in Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged, which provides an in-depth, detailed and holistic exposé of Ann Coulter.

@AnnCoulter Trashes Trump and CPAC

Ever vindictive, Ann Coulter has trashed CPAC for the better part of a dozen years and she has trashed President Trump since even before his (first) inauguration.

Why? If she doesn’t get her way, she goes for the jugular.

CPAC (and many other conservative organizations) quietly rejected Coulter a long, long time ago. However, Trump’s rejection was very public, with him calling her, justifiably so, a #WackyNutJob!

(Ironically, hubris and arrogance have been Coulter’s downfall but she is too proud and arrogant to see it.)

Repentance and forgiveness remain utterly foreign concepts to Coulter, who claims to be a Christian.

Just this month, Coulter went on a Twitter tirade against both Trump and CPAC. As those things go, it was ugly.

Here are a few of her tweets and responses from her followers:

Here’s another set:

Consider the context of Coulter’s complaint. Trump was thanking the head of the organization – Matt Schlapp – for his repeated invitations to speak at CPAC. Trump spoke at CPAC in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, and is scheduled to speak in 2020.

Why would Trump thank Lisa de Pasquale, an ardent Coulter fan and acolyte who betrayed CPAC to help Coulter? In fact, de Pasquale actually launched anti-CPAC events to coincide with CPAC conferences.

Coulter doesn’t know the meaning of the word “loyalty.”

Coulter’s various escapades at CPAC are recounted in Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged, which provides an in-depth, detailed and holistic exposé of Ann Coulter.

@AnnCoulter, the Left’s Secret Weapon Against America

Ann Coulter is 100% wrong about Donald Trump and the 2020 election – and here’s why!

Coulter is a brilliant writer, but she is totally wrong about the 2020 election.

Coulter has claimed throughout Trump’s presidency that unless he builds a wall, he will lose in 2020 and Democrats will forever be in power overseeing America’s demise.

Coulter’s apocalyptic prediction has far less validity than any of the polls showing Hillary winning a landslide victory in 2016.

Even without a wall, Donald Trump will win with a landslide victory.

Let’s examine the validity of each of her claims.

Trump Will Lose the 2020 Elections

Coulter absurdly contends that Trump will get less votes in 2020 than he got in 2016.

Seriously?

First, Trump is an incumbent and incumbents generally possess huge advantages from that status.

Second, every demographic has benefited from Trump’s policies, which have resulted in a roaring and soaring economy, record unemployment for every demographic and increased wages and incomes across the board. Moreover, America has become energy independent, exporting oil.

Third, Trump has fought for Americans – all Americans – most notably the working class, the unborn, and people of faith.

Fourth, Trump is the most pro-American, pro-life, pro-freedom, pro-free market, pro-liberty, pro-military, and pro-Israel president America has had in my lifetime.

Fifth, Trump has exposed the Left for who they really are, showing them to be anti-American, anti-liberty, anti-Constitution, and anti-Christian fanatics who will subvert the law and employ mob rule to achieve their Progressive utopia.

In doing so, Trump has exposed the depth of – and subversive nature of – the fake news media, the deep state, the resistance, and all those who have sought and continue to seek to overthrow the results of the 2016 election.

Americans have discovered that there was “No collusion, no obstruction” and that it truly was a Russia hoax and witch hunt. We have also learned of spygate and the shadow government, tracing back to the Obama administration and Clinton candidacy.

Sixth, Trump has clearly delineated deep distinctions between the Left and the Right, between Socialism and Capitalism, between Identity Politics and Liberty for All.

Seventh, Trump’s enemies have overplayed their hands or are no longer in play: FBI, CIA, DOJ, Fake News Media, Obama, Hillary, and Hollywood. The Deep State is dwindling and scurrying for cover.

Meanwhile, the Left has proven itself to be the party of illegal aliens, infanticide, reparations, mob rule, and many other extremist positions in a growing number of areas – all anathema to most Americans, including moderate Democrats.

The Left has moved so far left that, contrary to Coulter’s assertions that Democrats will get more votes in 2020 than they did in 2016, I predict moderate Democrats will abandon the party and simply walk away.

Far from a shrinking fan base, Trump’s base is expanding in every demographic.

Democrats Will Get More Votes in 2020

A Politico feature listed a number of ways the Left can forfeit victory to Trump in 2020. Among them: “Hold firmly to the idea that Twitter is the beating heart of the real Democrat Party,” “Embrace the weird,” “Keep promising lots of free stuff and don’t seat paying for it,” “Go ahead and abolish private health insurance,” “Spend time talking about reparations,” “Lots more focus on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” “Socialism,” and be extremist on abortion, guns, and court-packing.

A Breitbart feature contended that it is already too late for the Democrats to pivot for a 2020 election victory. Joel Pollak’s lead paragraph:

“The near-unanimous verdict across the mainstream media about last week’s Democratic debates – from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal – is that the party has moved so far to the left that it is jeopardizing its chances to unseat President Donald Trump in 2020.”

Pollak concluded: “It is not clear Democrats can right themselves. They are gambling the country will hate Trump so much by 2020, it will not matter.”

That gamble is disastrous for the Left, as Trump’s approval ratings among all demographics rises.

Philip Klein tweeted:

“There’s actually a relatively broad consensus among 2020 Dems on policies. It’s just that Biden wants to work with Rs to not get them; Warren/Harris want to steamroll Rs to not get them; and Bernie wants to start a revolution to not get them.”

To which Jonah Goldberg replied:

“This analysis is spot on, but leaves out Williamson who wants everyone to hold hands to form a human circle of love and positive energy to not get them.”

A tweet by Janie Johnson encapsulated Trump’s 2020 opposition:

“Democrat Platform 2020: Reparations, Abortion at 39 weeks, infanticide, pack the Supreme Court, Abolish the Electoral College, let 16 year olds vote, gun takeover, free healthcare to illegals, ocare for citizens with mandates, and open borders!”

Even avowed Never Trumpers might turn away from Democrats and toward Trump. In The Bulwark, Sarah Longwell admitted:

“if Never-Trump type Republicans want a candidate whose policies broadly align with their own preferences, they have one. His name is Donald J. Trump.”

There is an intense civil war within the Democrat Party, spearheaded by freshmen congresswomen hell-bent on a canvas-cleansing revolution employing scorched-earth polemics to create a progressive paradise in America. Americans do not want that and will not vote for that outcome.

Trump Hasn’t Kept Any of His Promises

Raging at reality, Coulter churlishly screams, “Trump hasn’t kept any of his promises.”

Huh?

Trump is winning by every economic indicator!

Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) provided a brief list of Trump’s accomplishments.

Charlie Kirk summarized some of Trump’s key kept promises (video here):

Immigration is All that Matters!

Whenever a prominent Democrat (e.g., Al Gore, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden) evinces interest in building a wall or controlling immigration, Coulter believes them – but she doesn’t believe Trump!

Since Trump’s inauguration, Coulter has said it would have been better if any of those other Democrat candidates had become president because, then we might have a wall. In each instance, they said something she agreed with on immigration – as if any one of them would have built a wall!

No sane person believes that to be the case.

Coulter is living in an alternative reality giving Twilight Zone commentary.

Coulter claims that demography is destiny. It is not. As Erick Erickson noted,

“hispanic and black voters tend to support traditional marriage and cultural conservatism and be more religious than the rich white people making up the Democrat coalition with them.”

Erickson added:

“As cancel culture and wokeness have picked up speed and girls are suddenly fighting for their own bathrooms instead of having to let boys in or let boys into girls sports, more and more data is showing plunging rates of support for leftwing social engineering among younger voters – the post-millennial voters.”

People from every imaginable demographic are benefiting from Trump’s foreign, domestic, and economic policies – and they will reward Trump with their votes!

Trump’s Enemies!

All this in the face of astonishing opposition which would have crushed anyone but Donald Trump.

American Thinker offered its list of Trump’s enemies:

  1. The Democratic Party.
  2. The Mexican and Central American Governments.
  3. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
  4. The Wall Street Journal.
  5. The Leftist News Media.
  6. Hollywood.
  7. The Deep State.
  8. RINOS.
  9. Unelected Leftist Democrat Judges.
  10. George Soros and His Open Society Foundation.
  11. Left-Wing Think-Tanks and Academia.
  12. The Lawyers Guild. 
  13. The United Nations. 
  14. The pope.
  15. Assorted U.S. Industries.
  16. The Russian and Chinese Governments.
  17. Jihadis.
  18. Labor Unions.
  19. The Mexican Crime Cartels.
  20. The Reconquista Movement.
  21. The Illegal Aliens.

One could arguably add Coulter’s name to this list (as well as the GOP establishment even today).

Given the insidious forces arrayed against him, Trump’s tremendous accomplishments are that much more breathtaking! (People of faith might suspect that God has had a hand in this – and they would be right.)

Coulter is 100% Wrong on the 2020 Election

If anything …

  • America’s prestige and power have been greatly enhanced
  • America has experienced the longest economic expansion on record under Trump’s watch.
  • Trump’s economic, judicial, and foreign policies have all been vindicated.
  • Trump’s political base has greatly expanded.
  • The Democrats’ base has significantly contracted.
  • Moderate Democrats will either stay home or vote for Trump. (#walkaway)
  • The fake news media is dying.
  • The deep state is being ever more exposed for what it is on a daily basis.
  • Christians, pro-lifers, and constitutionalists who once doubted Trump’s genuineness and commitment to their issues have had all of their doubts removed.

Coulter’s Idée Fixe

Coulter suffers from an idée fixe. For the past five years, it has been her vehement contention that immigration – and only immigration – matters. (Prior to that, for a dozen years, she claimed that terrorism – and only terrorism – mattered.)

Coulter repeatedly, ad nauseam, claims that every other problem will be solved by controlling immigration. Well, not really.

Trump has consistently proven Coulter wrong. Trump has shaken up the 3D-chessboard in a new realignment of America First priorities, exposing opponents of America First as enemies of America.

Trump has blown up political correctness and infuriated snowflakes, making it far easier for regular Americans to think more clearly and speak more freely.

Coulter’s obsession with immigration is her panic over the prospect that Democrats will have total power forever in America.

But Trump has routed the Left. They are in panic. They are desperate. They are doing everything they can to stop Trump. (And they will fail and America will succeed.)

The Left failed in 2016. The Russia Hoax and Spygate failed. Their continued Resistance continues to fail. And the American People now know the truth. The truth will set America free.

The more the Left lurches leftward, the fewer Americans will heed their siren call.

Trump can more than handle any Democrat nominee in any debate. Even with the fake news media and establishment elites against him. Even with Coulter, a #TDS-addled #NeverTrumper constantly on the attack.

A #Trump2020Landslide is just around the corner.

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis of Coulter’s worldview and character flaws which have led her to be so wrong in so many areas in which she regards herself as an expert.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the Ann Coulter that we know today and it highlights both the positives and the negatives of Coulter’s life and career.

The Day Ann Coulter Cried at CPAC!

In 1999, I attended my first CPAC conference as a credentialed member of the press. I had no inkling of the drama that was about to unfold before my eyes.

Although Coulter claims she hasn’t cried since she was a child, Radley Balko disagrees: “I’ve seen her cry.”[1]

Coulter, at the age of 37, cried at CPAC in 1999.

I attended that conference as a member of the press and witnessed what Balko would later describe. Coulter was part of a panel, but when the moderator asked her his first discussion question, she got up, went to the podium, and started giving a speech. After a few minutes, she was asked to sit down.

As the panel discussion ensued, it was not long before Coulter griped that she had been hooked off the stage and she was later cross with several audience questioners. Coulter – while still on the panel – sniveled: “Well, I’m already worried about the extent of the White House spin when I get hooked off the stage.”[2]

In what I’m sure the audience originally perceived as a non-event, Coulter turned into a big deal, even accusing the coordinators of skullduggery and the moderator of conspiracy. Since Coulter turned this into an event and leveled accusations against others to cover her own faux pas, let’s look at what really happened.

Gary Nolan, President of Capitol Watch, introduced the event as a panel discussion and introduced Ralph Hallow as the moderator, who, in turn, introduced the panel, and then asked Coulter a discussion question to start things off.

Coulter got up, walked around the moderator to the podium, and began a speech, saying: “I’m going to keep talking until a light goes on.”

In the midst of her soliloquy, Hallow handed her a note telling her to sit down. She ignored his note. Later, Hallow interrupted her again, this time whispering in her ear. Surprised at the interruption, she asked, “Sorry, what do you want me to do?” Puzzled, she asked, “You didn’t want a speech?”

Balko observed, “the panel concluded with Ann struggling to choke back tears. I snuck back behind the panel after the session, of course, hoping to witness more drama. And that’s when I saw Cold-Blooded Coulter in sobbing hysterics. She’d been bullied. And now she was crying.”

Don’t take Balko’s word for it. The Washington Post made a similar observation. Coulter lamented, “The moderator cut me off! I was humiliated in front of 600 people!’ Between sobs, she sucked on a cigarette.”[3]

A minor faux pas became a newspaper headline which opened a window into Coulter’s heart.

Coulter retaliated in a letter-to-the-editor.[4]

“I must write to correct a few of the many egregious misstatements in your Jan. 27 Reliable Source column.

“I am not, and have never been, arm candy for Bob Guccione, Jr. The Gooch was my arm candy – my boy toy – whom I eventually, and regretfully, had to replace with a much younger man.

“As for your report that I might run for the House in order to be taken more seriously, I am puzzled. Would becoming a member of the House really be a step up from being a New York Times bestselling author?[5] If so, I might start really dreaming. Perhaps someday I could trade in a seat on the House subcommittee on sheep-products for the dizzying heights of becoming a no-name gossip columnist for your paper.

“Ann H. Coulter”

In 1997, Coulter told me that she had trouble defending herself using letter-to-the-editor “without sounding defensive and pathetic, no matter how short and sarcastic.” She was right.

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis in this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter has become such a warped human being. This is but one of many CPAC escapades by Coulter presented in Joker.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the Ann Coulter that we know today and it highlights both the positives and the negatives of Coulter’s life and career.

Ann’s brokenness provides an object lesson for all of us and, hopefully, this book will act as an intervention to help Ann face her deep brokenness and motivate her to seek healing and restoration.

Ann Coulter Channels Her Inner @AOC

An astonishing thing happened following the 2018 election: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a freshmen congressman from New York, and Ann Hart Coulter, a veteran opinion writer also from New York, mirrored one another in outrageousness, idiocy, policies, and sheer silliness.

I was not alone in seeing the obvious equation: Ann Hart Coulter = Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Dana Perino observed that “AOC is the intellectual leader of the Left.”[1] Coulter has long been regarded as (or, more importantly, regards herself as) an intellectual leader on the Right.

David Wayne tweeted: “AOC is just viewed as the Left’s Ann Coulter.” John Griner tweeted to Coulter: “U are getting as annoying as AOC.”

Speaking of AOC, talk show host Derek Hunter, a friend of AHC, said that AOC’s greatest fault is that “she thinks she knows everything.” The exact same thing could be said of Coulter!

Utterly hilarious Cortez memes populate social media very single day. They are priceless. Her gaffes are legendary … and proving a major liability for the Democrat Party. Similar memes increasingly target Coulter, directly correlating the two.

With her late-onset Trump Derangement Syndrome and full throttle embrace of the #NeverTrump movement, Coulter has become a laughingstock on both the Left and the Right.

AOC and AHC jokes are quickly replacing blonde jokes!

The parallels between, and the parodies of, these two provocateurs proliferate on both social media and in news broadcasts and entertainment.

One adventurous soul even suggested that AHC and AOC run on one ticket for president in 2020.

In almost simultaneously-occurring controversies, AHC and AOC both claimed to be in charge!

AOC simply said, “I’m the boss” while AHC declared, “I’m president of the Trump re-election campaign.”

Both AHC and AOC think they know everything even as they make flabbergasting blunders, and yet they think (or want to think) that they are in charge.

AOC contends: “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.” Tucker Carlson calls AOC a “screechy moron,” yet has only high praise for AHC, despite her many, notorious gaffes.

Both AHC and AOC have been featured in comic books. Coulter was 47 years old when her first comic book debuted; AOC was 29 years old. Another Coulter comic book was published in 2017.

Both AHC and AOC are prone to using apocalyptic language to incite their base. (Coulter has been doing this for almost 20 years. Coulter said the world would end if Gore was elected in 2000! And she frequently speaks of impending doom for America and the world if her policies are not put into place.)

Both AHC and AOC have totalitarian tendencies. AOC declares “I’m the boss” and intends to place every aspect of American life under the control of a centralized Progressive (statist) government. Meanwhile, AHC, for over two decades has sought to shape and control the outcome of local, state, and national elections by whatever means necessary.

Coulter has frequently spoken of the “benefits of local fascism,” called for suppression of liberal speech, sought to rescind the 19th Amendment (giving women the right to vote), and called for poll taxes and literacy tests for voting.

Ever the control freak, Coulter wants to control the mechanisms and policies of government. She has often joked (but, seriously, folks!) about using Tinder to determine who can immigrate to America.

AHC, like AOC, thinks that she is – or should be – the boss!

Both are incredibly obsessed with identity politics!

(The hyperlinks in the above chart are active in the free PDF book, Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged.)

AHC differs from AOC in that she is more professional, polished, and nuanced that AOC (except when she is not).

Death is Sexier Than Sex to Ann Coulter

According to one psychologist (emphasis added): “[Ann Coulter] most likely cannot achieve sexual satisfaction without extreme fetishes if at all, her interpersonal relationships are probably rocky with few real friends, and she is most likely an insecure, lonely, aging wreck at the end of the day. Think fatal attraction material without the actions.”[1]

ConvertOrDie

This column’s title, “Death is Sexier Than Sex to Ann Coulter” is borrowed from my friend, Lydia Cornell from her 2005 column. Her “facetious” title is far more accurate than anyone could have grasped at the time and, indeed, is prescient regarding Coulter’s devolution of character and descent into darkness.

Coulter responded to Lydia by doxing her on the front page of Coulter’s website with the caption, “Death is certainly sexier than Lydia Cornell. Wait until I tell her about the death camps I have planned for liberals.”

Wow! Elimination rhetoric to the max. (Coulter left Lydia’s private information on her website for a full year, encouraging an abundance of hate mail and stalkers.)

Lydia concluded, “I didn’t realize the extent to which hate and death are such a turn-on for Coulter.”

Coulter does, indeed, have dark fantasies. She has an obsession with making bogus rape accusations (with herself as the victim) to achieve her political ends. She frequently delights in fantasizing about liberals being sodomized in jail.

Coulter Gang Raped

In a shocking interview, Coulter told Sunday Times Magazine (emphasis added): “I like being sexually assaulted.”[2]

Discussing the #MeToo movement, Coulter boasted (emphasis added): “I’ve had very, very aggressive men push me beyond where I’ve wanted to go. I thought it was a great date. I don’t think of it as an assault. I have fond memories.”

In light of that, Coulter’s familiarity with anal sex and fisting give one pause. Coulter as dominatrix has been a popular meme for twenty years.

Coulter - POTUS

For over fifty years – beginning as a kindergartener – Coulter has engaged in a battle of wills to achieve political supremacy and victory.

Apparently, her political confrontational style has crossed over into her romantic and sexual relationships, wherein she seeks a worthy opponent to subdue (or be subdued by).

Now, she confesses that she is “dying to be date raped.” Wow! (What would Mother think? Father?)[3]

No wonder Coulter employs elimination rhetoric so often, never misses a chance to taunt the recently deceased and bereaved, and appears utterly devoid of empathy. Remember, in 2006, Coulter was already being called “cruel.”

Death

How did Coulter become so cruel? Why are hatred and death such turn-ons for Coulter? Why has the dark side taken over so much of Coulter’s heart, worldview, and life? For answers, see Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged!

Ann Coulter: Betrayer Extraordinaire

Ann Coulter and I became friends in the summer of 1997, or so I thought. My side was real; hers faux.

Ann Coulter’s Betrayals

During that time, I gave her everything she asked for and more. Ann was delighted with her Alamo Award, writing to me, “I love those quotes. that is much better than an interview would have been. they are totally, totally great. yes, please, please drop off or send as many copies as you can part with – I’m going to use it as part of my press packet. I had forgotten making most of those remarks but they do sound awfully familiar. thank you for compiling them” [SIC].

But I quickly discovered certain disturbing things about her. In mid-August, Ann was irate over little details contained in items about, and profiles of, her in three different publications.

She asked me to write letters-to-the-editor on her behalf. (I discovered that she routinely scoured the media for anything about her and that she hated any criticism of any kind, no matter how miniscule.)[1]

Ann found my letters-to-the-editor to be lacking in usefulness and, therefore, concluded that I was no longer useful to her. She dumped me with a nasty email. (I later discovered that she threw everything I had given her in the trash.)

But 12 days later, Ann feigned friendship to get back one of those things she had foolishly thrown away: an 11-page collection of Coulter quote highlights from her appearances on TV.

Having gotten what she wanted, she again dumped me (without telling me so this time). Instead, she made numerous false promises, keeping none of them during a four-month period.

When I confronted her about her behavior, she lashed out at me, using a strikingly similar argument she used to her boss at Human Events (without directing any hostility to him).

Coulter has turned her back on (and been rejected by) friends, colleagues, and organizations who were once her champions and benefactors. I remember Coulter saying on Politically Incorrect that she never remembers ex-boyfriends once they become exes. Apparently, her anti-social behavior applies to everyone.

Coulter once boasted of betraying her boss, Sen. Spencer Abraham (R-MI), when she was his staffer in 1995-96. Coulter secretly worked with other senate staffers opposed to Abraham’s immigration agenda. (Coulter was Deep State before the term was invented. No wonder she doesn’t attack the Deep State opposing Trump!)

At the very same time she betrayed me in 1997, she betrayed Paula Jones by leaking attorney-client privileged information to scuttle the settlement Jones’ desperately sought and she betrayed her employer,[2] the Center for Individual Rights, by engaging in a “pro-bono” political case CIR would have shunned (that’s why she kept her activities so secret).

In 1998, Coulter plagiarized both the words and the work of her colleague at Human Events, Michael Chapman, to write her first bestselling book, High Crimes and Misdemenaors. She has never given him due credit for his contribution and she even claimed that she’d never heard of him.[3]

In 1999 and on other occasions, Coulter frequently lied to her friend, Geraldo Rivera, on-air, about her connection with Linda Tripp’s tapes and other issues.

In 2000, Coulter sought to betray the people of Connecticut by running a “total sham campaign” for Congress.[4]

Over a period of many years, Coulter betrayed a host of individuals and organizations who had been very supportive of her.

Her fans are no exception. That’s what she did with me in 1996-97, emailing me her TV appearance schedule so that I could videotape her, transcribe highlights, promote her in my newsletter, and write supportive letters-to-the-editor on her behalf. Then, “Goodbye!”

Coulter forsook her own loyal fan club, one still linked on her website, seemingly for no reason whatsoever (the missing link remains missing).

In September 2017, Coulter boasted of having “TWO fan pages,” but by that December, she severed ties with her long-standing fan club.

Her now defunct fan club had a widely-used forum which promoted her books, columns, speeches, and other events. It vigorously discussed her columns and defended her from spurious attacks. And it actively aided her in organizing and setting up events across the country. They gave her 100% loyalty.

In the end, Coulter has also betrayed her readers and the American People with lies and fabrications, making things up from her own imagination. This was especially true during the past five presidential election cycles during which she defamed any candidate who threatened her chosen nominee.[5]

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

Speaking of conservatives opposed to Trump, Coulter boasted (emphasis added), “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?)

In the end, Coulter has betrayed a host of people, groups, and organizations.[6]

For many years, post-9/11, Coulter betrayed the American Conservative Union and CPAC on numerous occasions.

In 2017, Coulter trashed her decades-long friendship with Sean Hannity in an extremely petty manner.

Also, in 2017, Coulter trashed her beloved Charles Murray and a 19-year-old Cornell student with one tweet.

In 2019, Coulter even threw her long-time good friends, George and Kellyanne Conway, under the bus.[7] (Ann was Kellyanne’s bridesmaid!)

Her one-time friend and ideological mentor, author Joseph Sobran, wrote that lies are betrayal! (emphasis added):[8]

A lie is not just a statement that isn’t “accurate.” It’s a personal betrayal. It means you are a traitor to whomever you are talking to. You make him a fool for trusting you in the way we all have to be able to trust each other for life to go along. You’re willing to turn his good faith against him for your selfish advantage. You treat him not as your friend or fellow citizen, but as your prey.

For the entire 22 years that I have known Ann, she has been adept at manipulating people. She uses them and then throws them away.

Many conservative organizations fawned over Coulter as she became a conservative icon and “goddess of the conservative movement.” Among them, the Claire Booth Luce Policy Institute, Young America’s Foundation, the American Conservative Union, and the Media Research Center. All of them granted Coulter lucrative speaking fees and/or promoted her work. They have all since effectively boycotted Coulter.

In 2017, Turning Point USA, sponsored her speeches, but not in 2018, even though its four-day conference was held in West Palm Beach, FL, which Coulter calls her home (she was actually in town during the conference!).[9]

For over twenty years, Coulter’s preferred presidential nominee has become someone she ultimately hates.

Coulter shares astonishing similarities with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and has been called the AOC of the GOP!

Every self-identity Coulter holds is bogus.

Coulter is not a Settler, but an Immigrant.

Coulter is not a WASP purebred, but a mongrel.

In addition to two decades of presidential follies, Coulter’s fiascos are legendary, including at Berkeley, the Hamptons, CPAC, and with Delta.

Public Resists Coulter’s Resistance Is Futile

Ann Coulter’s latest book, Resistance Is Futile, is classic Coulter. She exhibits her characteristic flair for effectively conveying her point of view. Earlier, I highlighted what Coulter gets right – and wrong in Resistance. Here are more salient observations, many of which you are probably unaware of.

Resistance - Public Resists

Dedicated to Deceased Bodyguard and Lover

Let me begin with what I “knew” about Resistance before it was published. I knew (from the very moment I heard the announcement that she was writing another book) that Coulter would dedicate this book to Floyd Resnick, now deceased. (Her second book, Slander, published in 2002, was dedicated to her deceased former editor, Robert Jones.)

I fully expected Resistance to be dedicated to Resnick, Coulter’s faithful, long-time bodyguard and lover. For a time, Coulter’s speaking contract even required first-class airfare for two. They went everywhere together.

RIP Floyd Resnick

I knew Floyd and, at one CPAC conference many years ago, I saw him lead Ann by the hand through the crowds, displaying a certain casual intimacy.

Resnick died on 11/11/16. In lieu of a public eulogy (or even a tweet), Ann gave him this book dedication.

Failing Book Tour

Coulter’s 13th book was released on August 21st to much fanfare and debuted near the bottom of the New York Times bestseller list (#14), only to precipitously plunge into a black hole the following week.

Her book’s disappointing showing (by Coulter standards) cannot be attributed to media bias as several similarly-themed books appeared higher on that list for longer periods of time.

Her (thus far) failing book tour and abysmal sales may be puzzling to some (my own forthcoming book will shed ample light on many factors for this), especially given Coulter’s energetic efforts to achieve success: two book launch parties; intense promotion from Breitbart, Daily Caller, and other Coulter-friendly news media; two appearances on the Rush Limbaugh Show; several appearances on Tucker Carlson’s highly popular Fox News TV show; and a slew of radio, television and print interviews.

Then there’s Coulter’s own Twitter following of over two million Twitter followers. With over two million followers, one would expect more than a paltry 13,100 books (including preorders) to be sold in the first three weeks (per Bookscan). Do Ann’s followers not like her? Not trust her?

Many Coulter followers don’t trust her because of her past history of lies and deception and her Romney-like shifting political positions.

Coulter’s biggest and most vocal fans support her immigration stand. Many of her fans are fixated upon her, in their words, being “hot.” Some of her biggest detractors are pro-Trumpers outraged at the depth and degree of her attacks on Trump. (It is striking that Trump has yet to comment on Resistance Is Futile.)

By my (albeit unscientific) observations, among her following, Ann has some very ardent admirers, many who are neutral and – to use a journalistically “precise” term – a helluva lot who vehemently hate her. (It is as if they follow her merely to criticize everything she tweets.)

Despite all of the positive factors favoring success, after three weeks, Resistance had sold in the mere tens of thousands. (Her previous book, In Trump We Trust, didn’t even make the bestseller list!)

Her fourth week also saw her fall short of a resurgence on the bestseller list, even though audience members at her speeches (Acushnet, MA, and Concord, NH) “purchased” her book as part of their tickets. (People wanting to meet Ann had to buy her book.)

Coulter on Her Own Book

But what does Coulter say about Resistance?

Resistance - better

Coulter typically boasts that all of her books are blockbusters (even when they’re not even bestsellers) and that her columns are excellent. On the Mark Simone Show (8/16/18), Coulter bragged,

“The chapter titles are excellent and they’re very short chapters with lots of headings because I am part of the Twitter generation. And notice it’s a nice short book. It has a lot of footnotes.”

I was particularly struck by one phrase, “I am part of the Twitter generation,” which is utterly absurd, yet she has repeated it on multiple talk shows, evidently considering it a snappy soundbite. If Coulter is part of a Twitter “generation” – whatever that is – then that “generation” spans scores of years.

Twitter was made for Coulter. She has always been good at quick quips and snappy repartee – thus perfect for Twitter. (Though she is prone to gaffes when tweeting off-the-cuff.)

But, no, she is hardly part of a Twitter “generation” which is largely populated by millennials and Generation Z, but also encompasses people of all ages. There “are over 67 million Twitter users in the U.S.

People using a social media platform who range in age from young children to senior citizens can hardly be called a “generation.” Is Ann trying to recapture her youth? Appear hip? Relevant? Perhaps she is trying to make herself more relevant or appear younger than she really is.

Contents of Resistance

Coulter’s writing is solid, including her trademark penchant for hyperbole, as with her concluding chapter title: “For Democracy to Live, We Must Kill the Media.” (Where’s the guillotine?)

(Presumably, Coulter is referring to the #FakeNewsMedia and not genuine journalism. Is Ann not part of the media? She is unclear as to whether she is targeting the institutions themselves, or the people within those institutions.)

As this table of contents indicates, Coulter addresses the hot issues of the day.

Resistance - TOC

Coulter’s Clever Title

Coulter’s titles are often clever and this one – Resistance is Futile – is no exception. Coulter effectively merges a contemporary political and cultural phenomenon with a well-known pop culture meme from twenty years ago.

Resistance - title

But, as with so many things Coulter, contradictions abound, and, in this case, her title itself proffers confusing ideological optics.

Within her book, Coulter accurately conveys the ultimate end results of the Left’s #Resistance movement while adopting its faulty historical and political precepts.

The Left’s #Resistance movement carefully portrays itself as comparable to and the moral heirs of the French Resistance in World War II, when, in fact, they are the enemies of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity.

With #ViveLaResistance, Progressives conjure up images of determined French patriots resisting Nazi occupation (think Casablanca) and they infer that America is occupied by Nazi-like GOP leaders pursuing tyrannical control of America.

In Casablanca, Rick Blaine is the reluctant freedom-fighter while Victor Laszlo (not an American) is the courageous leader of the French Resistance. The Left loves Bogart’s character, but, now, have adopted Paul Henreid’s serious, combative, and irrepressible hero as a standard-bearer for their own cause – a cause against which the French Resistance would have ferociously fought.

Similarly, while Coulter’s Resistance is Futile accurately identifies the tyrannical and thuggish behavior – and anti-Liberty, anti-American nature – of the #Resistance, Coulter herself frequently emulates their ideology, behavior, tactics, and rhetoric.

Ironically, Coulter has chosen for the title a slogan beloved by tyrants from antiquity to sci-fi villains of the future (most notably, the Borg).

For today’s Progressives, GOP = Nazi = Borg.

Coulter’s title unconsciously confirms their viewpoint.

Coulter – Borg Queen

Coulter’s clever but contradictory title unwittingly presents herself as the villain (Borg Queen) and the #Resistance as heroic freedom fighters.

The irony of Coulter’s latest book title, Resistance is Futile, can’t escape one’s notice. It is a tyrannical imperative that has rung through the ages, most recently by the Nazis and Soviets (and other Socialists), the aliens of V, and, most memorably, by the Borg in the Star Trek franchise.

Strikingly, the Borg demand assimilation, as American nationalists do, albeit in a decidedly un-American, tyrannical, non-Melting pot paradigm.

Resistance is Futile - Borg

In 2015, Coulter spoke at the Eagle Forum’s Collegiate Summit, saying:

“There was no pussyfooting around. We’re assimilating you, you’re here, and you’re going to be an American. There will be no celebration of Cinco de Mayo, there will be no Ramadan, in fact there won’t even be a Feast of the Immaculate Conception – we are an Anglo-Protestant country, and you will learn about the Battle of Valley Forge.”

Resistance - dog

In Resistance, Coulter addresses very real problems of tyranny, violence, and mob rule on the Left while using a construct to promote her own hive mentality of the Alt-Right.

Coulter Is Part of the Resistance

Another great irony during the Trump presidency thus far is that Coulter has frequently been part of the #Resistance! She has often attacked Trump’s positive agenda (tax cuts, deregulation, and peace through strength, which she describes as commitment “to the Military Industrial Complex). Coulter also frequently raises the specter of impeachment.

Coulter told the Independent Journalism Review, “I would do it all over again. I would write In Trump We Trust all over again. At least he’s saying things. He may not be fully following through and I do have to swat him on the nose with a newspaper every once in a while.”

Resistance - Donnie

To Rush Limbaugh and his audience, Coulter said Trump “has a suck-up personality” and his “presidency is more of a transactional presidency. He does have to be swatted on the nose with a rolled up newspaper when he goes astray.” In other words, Coulter knows best!

Last year, as reported by the Washington Examiner and other media outlets (emphasis added), “Coulter said she and Trump were involved in a profanity-laced screaming match in the Oval Office last year over his immigration policy.” (Coulter claims that Trump “started it.” Still, Ann, it’s not a good approach to win hearts over to your side.)

Resistance - Oval Office

Not to be outdone, on The Next Revolution (9/16/18), Coulter argued, “If the Resistance were smart, they’d read my book and attack Trump for not building the wall.”

Nihilistic Annihilation

The corollary to “You will be assimilated” is the alternative: “You will be annihilated.”

Resistance - annihilated

Coulter has always had a bit of a Borg mindset. In the early 1990s, she wanted to eradicate feminism. Post-9/11, her mantra was “Kill, kill, kill.” In the 2000s, Coulter constantly spoke about how wonderful it would to have a world without liberals. During that same period, she was engaged in a jihad against both liberals and jihadists. Prior to and during the last presidential election cycle, Coulter sought the death of the GOP. (On September 23rd, Coulter’s tweetstorm demanded that we “crush the GOP.”)

Now, Coulter seeks the death of the press: “An essential component of saving the country is absolutely destroying the press. Not a brick upon a brick should remain. Then it can be rebuilt on more ethical lines.” (She fails to make clear distinctions between the #FakeNewsMedia and objective journalism.)

Coulter’s conclusion in Resistance is “We Must Kill the Media.” On The Next Revolution (9/16/18), Coulter pondered, “Maybe we do have to destroy everything first” – something a cultural Marxist would say.

Resistance - We Must Kill The Media

Remember, Coulter has been a canvas-cleanser for most of her adult life.
