.@AnnCoulter Has Incurable #CPAC-Derangement Syndrome!

Long before Ann Coulter was beset by a virulent form of Trump Derangement Syndrome,[1] Coulter developed CPAC Derangement Syndrome.

Since then, Coulter seeks out every opportunity to berate and defame CPAC, which she regards as America’s enemy!

Coulter retweeted agreement with this tweet: “Florida’s useless sellout bimbo of a Senator – Marco Rubio – was invited to CPAC but true conservatives – like @AnnCoulter – weren’t? Seriously?”

Since then, Coulter continues to CPAC, suggesting that CPAC is America’s enemy!

Coulter tweeted:

  • It’s the “Chamber of Commerce PAC,” used to promote Matt Schlapp’s lobbying clients. – 2/24/21, 2:24 a.m.
  • CPAC IS unsafe. It’s Matt Schlapp’s lobbying clients masquerading as “conservatives.” – 2/24/21, 4:09 p.m.
  • This isn’t your older brother’s CPAC anymore. – 2/24/21, 4:10 p.m.

Coulter has also claimed that CPAC is funded by the Koch rothers, whom she has said are evil! In her mind, the Koch brothers = George Soros!

Who are these enemies of America?

CPAC’s primary sponsors this year are the American Conservative Union, Fox Nation, and Liberty Health Share.

Coulter was a featured speaker at CPAC for 17 consecutive years from 1998 to 2014. Her time at CPAC represents both a microcosm of and an allegory for her career.

Presenting Sponsors” comprise: Save the American Inventor, Korea CPAC, Save Our States, and World Forecast. The “Partnering Sponsors” are Liberty Ecosystem and Washington Times.

Oh, the horror!

But it gets worse! “Supporting Sponsors” include The Epoch Times, Heritage Foundation, Judicial Watch, Turning Point USA, and Young America’s Foundation.

Say it ain’t so! (These are hardly anti-American organizations.)

The funny thing is that Young America’s Foundation sponsored Coulter’s speeches for almost two decades, Turning Point USA has sponsored several speeches, and Coulter gave at least one speech at the Heritage Foundation.

CPAC “Contributing Sponsors” include Project Veritas, Citizens United, and the Leadership Institute.

But … Coulter participated in several documentaries for Citizens United and has recently given speeches for the Leadership Institute, which vigorously promoted her speaking tour. Moreover, Coulter was best friends for over two decades with David Bossie, President of Citizens United.

CPAC “Participating Sponsors” include CFACT and the Center for the Claire Boothe Luce Conservative Women, both of which sponsored Coulter’s speeches. Indeed, the latter did so for over fifteen years!

Who has changed? All of these splendid American and conservative organizations? Or Ann Coulter?

Was Ann Coulter an enemy of America then or is she an enemy of America now?

Sampling of Coulter’s Attacks on CPAC!

In 2015, Coulter told the Washington Examiner: “I wasn’t invited. I might just show up anyway just to piss them off. I could be the Bibi Netanyahu of CPAC.”

Why would Coulter want to piss off CPAC? Ego? The woman scorned? A vengeful nature?

Did you notice, Coulter places herself and her situation on par with that of Bibi Netanyahu?! Coulter likens herself to the Israeli Prime Minister, renowned for his courage, his eloquence, and his principled character.

But beyond that, Coulter’s tweets also reveal her own denial of reality and her self-absorption.

  • CPAC = Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee
  • “attendees surveyed after the conference consistently chose Coulter as the most popular speaker”
  • Of course, if I want to watch a bunch of rich white people suck up to the Mexicans, I’ll watch the Oscars again.
  • I’ll be the Bibi Netanyahu of CPAC!

Finally, CPAC discovered that we should Never Trust Ann Coulter – at ANY Age![2]

Even though she considers herself indispensable to CPAC (and CPAC indispensable to her standing as a great conservative leader), Coulter was missed only by herself.

In 2018, Coulter told the audience of the Lars Larson Show, “I remember when CPAC wasn’t funded by the Koch brothers.” (Those evil anti-Americans!)

In 2019, Coulter again sniped at CPAC.

One person tweeted: “Every societal movement will eventually turn into a grift once people realize they can gain money and power by pilfering the herd. If you join one, join early and get out early.” Coulter retweeted thusly: “See, e.g., CPAC.

Coulter also retweeted (“Duh.”) to a tweet claiming: “What everyone is saying: ‘CPAC isn’t fun without Ann Coulter. And hasn’t been for years.”

Yes, Coulter still believes her own press. Meanwhile, in the real world, CPAC thrives and expands!

Why CPAC Rejected Coulter

After 9/11, Coulter’s CPAC appearances were continually mired in controversies of Coulter’s own making. Her provocative rhetoric became ever more extreme. She regularly employed elimination rhetoric. Coulter seemingly sought to upstage CPAC at every turn.

One year, a host of conservative organizations and bloggers threatened to boycott CPAC if Coulter was invited to speak. Coulter was rejected as a speaker but, through slight-of-hand, spoke anyway. In both 2013 and 2014, Coulter was invited at the last minute, due to aggressive campaigns by Coulter to appear.[3] (Friends in high places have always come to her aid.)

Coulter’s antics continued in 2014, with Coulter coordinating a phony “debate,” disparaging poor people, issuing death threats, and falsely claiming to have been raped.[4]

But in 2014, Coulter crossed a non-negotiable red-line: Coulter boasted publicly of betraying CPAC.

Coulter has a long history of betraying friends,[5] colleagues,[6] and clients.[7] Then, Coulter publicly betrayed CPAC.

Within weeks of her appearance at CPAC 2014, Coulter boasted of scamming CPAC. She bragged about this “really so brilliant” scam to thwart CPAC’s agenda “despite CPAC’s best efforts.”

Nicely done, Ann.

Such is Coulter’s ego that she believes – after scamming CPAC and bragging about it – that CPAC would be obligated to invite her to speak in subsequent years.

Ann Coulter – Rejected by Her Peers, Sponsors, and Fans

In the late 1990s, Ann Coulter was called the Goddess of the Conservative Movement. In the early 2000s, Coulter became a Conservative Icon. For over a dozen years, Coulter was the go-to pundit for radio and TV interviews and she was regularly featured on Fox News (at least weekly, often more often than that).

Once regarded as one of the most powerful and influential people in America, Coulter’s meteoric rise has, ironically, found its meteor lost in a black hole of her own making.

Pride goes before destruction. Hubris destroys everything it touches.

Virtually every organization which one championed Coulter – and lavished her with praise, power, and lucrative speaking fees – has, one after another, abandoned her.

The conservative forum, Free Republic, worshiped Coulter as a goddess in 1998 and many years thereafter. Now, for the better part of a decade, its members almost uniformly dismiss Coulter with exceedingly uncomplimentary denunciations.

Coulter was a regular speaker for the Claire Boothe Luce Policy Institute (CBLPI) for well over a decade, but no longer. That relationship ended many years ago.

Similarly, Coulter was a very popular speaker for Young America’s Foundation, which would typically sponsor a dozen or score of Coulter speeches in any given year. That ended a few years ago.

The College Republicans frequently sponsored Coulter speeches for a number of years, but, for quite some time, has not done so.

Eagle Forum, once a Coulter advocate and speech sponsor, now acts as if Coulter does not exist.

Coulter was a featured speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) from 1998-2014. For the past five years, despite Coulter’s best efforts, CPAC has shunned Coulter due to her antics, polemics, and provocative behavior.

For over a dozen years, the Media Research Center (MRC) adamantly supported Coulter and featured her in its annual prestigious Dishonors Awards program. Following Coulter’s repeated series of anti-Catholic tweets and comments, MRC has privately disavowed Coulter.

For nearly two decades, Coulter was beloved by Fox News. Following a series of anti-Semitic tweets in 2015, Coulter was banished from its airwaves for about a year-and-a-half. Coulter’s bizarre behavior in 2018 led to another banishment. She hasn’t appeared on Fox News since November 2018.

In 2017, Turning Point USA added Coulter to its roster of speakers, but then, the very next year, declined to invite Coulter to speak at its four-day conference in Coulter’s backyard of West Palm Beach, Florida. (Coulter was actually in town during the conference.) Even now, in 2019, it excludes her from “The BIGGEST & most influential women in conservative politics will be in Dallas, TX for #YWLS2019 June 6th-9th.”

Most recently, Coulter has been abandoned by her journalistic home of some 23 years, Human Events! She was recently described as “formerly a regular on Human Events.” Her last column was published on February 20, 2019.

Coulter feels sorry for herself. She laments her loss of friends and relationships. But she seemingly fails to grasp why she lost those relationships.

Despite having over two million Twitter followers, Coulter’s actual fan base seems to be shrinking. Her last few books were flops!

Coulter’s words, last August, express her sorrow without really acknowledging the reality of why those relationships became broken. (Coulter is not one to take responsibility for her own actions or failures. Rather, she is quick to blame others for her own faults.)

I suspect that, in reality, Ann is saddened that she is no longer wanted. People have come to know who she really is and they don’t trust her.

When will Coulter look in the mirror, see her own faults, and seek forgiveness and redemption?

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis in this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter has become a pariah among her peers and former colleagues and friends.

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.

Until then, Coulter has become a spent force … all sound and fury signifying nothing.

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]
