@AnnCoulter, Trump’s 3D Chess is #Winning! (part II)

We’ve seen that Ann Coulter is 100% wrong about Donald Trump and the 2020 election.[1] We’ve also seen that Coulter has no grasp of Trump’s 3D-chess approach to foreign and domestic policy; nor does she grasp that he is winning![2]

Here, we briefly look at Trump’s accomplishments on the singular issue that Coulter cares about: immigration![3]

Immigration Policies

As he has in other policy areas, Trump has been very careful to stay within the framework of the Constitution. This irks Ann, as she wants her policies implemented her way, and she wants it done now!

But Trump, by adhering to the strictest interpretation of the Constitution, has masterfully refuted the Left’s contention that he is a dictator-in-chief. Moreover, he has exposed the depth of the Deep State and the Resistance, the propagandistic nature of the Fake News Media, the usurpation of Executive Branch responsibilties by a left-wing activist court, and the anti-American nature of the modern Progressive movement.

Our President has made considerable progress despite the myriad foes arrayed against him, including a Russia Hoax and Witch Hunt which sought to cripple or destroy Trump’s Make America Great Again agenda.

Trump has proven victorious.

The American people are behind him.

Trump’s Policies are Working!

CBP “Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez said border apprehensions have plunged for the second straight month, and that the Trump administration’s deal with Mexico to help slow the flood of immigrants to the southern border is working.” He added:

“It’s absolute proof. Unquestionably, an agreement with the government of Mexico that was literally unprecedented by way of the degree of cooperation, the commitment they’ve made, to enforce and go down in numbers with their National Guard and law enforcement along their border … Guatemala.”

Perez continued:

“Interior enforcement up, as well as enforcement along our southern border – that coupled with the collaboration with the migrant protection protocol and some of the work that we’ve been doing with the northern triangle countries – all combined, you’ve seen those numbers drop now in two months in a row.”

Recently, a “federal appeals court sided with the Trump administration on Friday in the legal battle over its efforts to limit asylum claims from Central America – blocking, for now, a nationwide injunction that blocked the implementation of the rule.”

Trump is looking at the bigger picture, engaged in global 3D chess, and tending to all of his responsibilities as President of the United States.

But all Ann wants is a wall! How short-sighted!

Why?

My new book, Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged,[4] explains Coulter’s obsession with a wall and all that it symbolizes.

Joker 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.

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]

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter became such an untrustworthy human being.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the 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 brokenness and seek healing and restoration.

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.
