Happy 58th Birthday, @AnnCoulter

Conservative celebrity Ann Coulter turned 58 today. What has she accomplished in her nearly six decades of life?

Coulter’s life and work, worldview and self-identity, are all filled with myriad contradictions and conundrums. From whence do those arise? Hers is a fascinating story of elite privilege, hubris, and insecurity.

Almost sexagenarian Ann has both achieved her wildest dreams and squandered her life.

Raising a Narcissist

Ann’s first few weeks of life were spent in an incubator and her child and teenage years were also lived in an incubator of sorts, one which nurtured and molded the narcissist so many have grown to either love or hate. Those incubators have isolated Ann from real life and real relationships. (Now, she confesses to be an agoraphobe who reads a lot.)

As a child, Ann, the last-born baby princess, was both doted upon and the object of high expectations. Ann had much to live up toher family name, her Puritan ancestry, and her WASP settler roots.

Higher Education and Networking

Ann was reared by elites in the elite town of New Canaan, Connecticut, and she later attended elite academic institutions: Cornell University and the University of Michigan Law School.

As a child, Ann quickly learned how to manipulate people with her looks and quick wit. In later years, she put her skills to good use, creating a vast network of useful contacts in academia, the media, and among various political organizations.

Coulter used those useful contacts to obtain jobs and, later, media gigs. Indeed, she would later all of those connections into lucrative book deals and speaking engagements, even cross-country speaking tours (and a Canadian speaking tour, as well).

Coulter would inevitably be drawn to the three power centers of America: Washington, D.C., (politics), New York (media), and Los Angeles (entertainment).

From Senate Staffer to Conservative Star

Since her teenage years (oh so long ago), Ann sought to become a star, a mover-and-shaker, a President-maker. In the late 1990s, Coulter was an obscure Senate staffer who quickly rose to prominence within conservative circles and would, in time, become close friends with multi-millionaires and billionaires.

In 1997, Coulter betrayed Paula Jones in order to impeach President Clinton. Ever since, she has sought to control the nomination process and electoral outcome of every presidential election, by whatever means necessary.

President-Maker and Pretender to the Throne

Beginning with the 2000 presidential election, Coulter sought to make a president. For fully two decades, Coulter smeared all opposition to her preferred candidates, fabricating “facts” and employing elimination rhetoric to achieve her personal, professional, and ideological goals. The politics of personal destruction became her métier.

Coulter became the gold standard for scorched-earth politics and relished identifying herself as a polemicist and provocateur.

Coulter found success in Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential victory campaign and has often claimed credit for his agenda and success. Indeed, during the first three years of Trump’s presidency, Coulter has acted as if she were president and that he should do her will.

Losing Her Moral Compass

In the end, Coulter discarded the values and principles instilled in her by Father and the grace, compassion, and generosity exemplified by Mother. Coulter abandoned the faith of Father and twisted the faith of Mother into her own unique gospel.

While despising the “godless Left” for its anti-Americanism and moral relativism, Coulter adopted the Left’s axiom of “the end justifies the means.”

Though claiming to be “totally pro-life,” Coulter has bashed the pro-life movement for over two decades, placing political pragmatism over eternal principles. Despite claiming to be “an extraordinarily good Christian,” Coulter has attacked Christians for over two decades – for behaving like Christians!

Once the fiercest neo-conservative warrior, Coulter became a strident nativist, pacifist, isolationist, and immigration hawk. With each incarnation, Coulter called those who opposed her views “traitors.”

From #InTrumpWeTrust to #NeverTrump … all over a Wall!

With Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory, Coulter’s dream of making a President (in her eyes, she gets almost all the credit) came true. But the honeymoon was over even before the election results came in.

Coulter vacillates between being #InTrumpWeTrust and #NeverTrump seemingly by the day, if not the hour. One moment she worships her “Emperor-God Trump” and the next she declares doomsday because of Trump! (Talk about mood swings!)

Beginning around 2014, Coulter’s peers, sponsors, and fans began rejecting her. President Trump called her a #WackyNutJob! Coulter became walled off from reality! Even at the end of 2019, in the midst of an American Renaissance, Coulter screamed doomsday! In effect, Coulter became the Left’s secret weapon against Trump and against America.

Coulter’s myopic view of #BuildTheWall walled her off from the reality of Trump’s 3D chess strategy. Coulter remains oblivious to Trump’s phenomenal achievements, all the more astonishing in that he is opposed by the #Resistance and a series of #WitchHunts seeking a #DeepStateCoup! Nevertheless, Trump keeps winning and winning.

Victim of Her Own Success

Power corrupts. So does fame. Coulter acquired both in a short period of time. All of the forces in her life fed her ego, puffed her up with pride, and propelled her to ever greater heights of hubris and hyperbolic polemics.

Coulter has garnered considerable attention, fame, glory, and infamy. She has achieved much, perhaps beyond her wildest imagination. She has received countless awards and accolades and strutted over many red carpets, but what has she really accomplished?

Coulter is intensely hated by the Left, is a pariah on the Right, has been rejected by those who know her best, and is at Ground Zero of the catastrophic forces which are tearing America apart – forces which she herself helped unleash!

Coulter’s perhaps well-intentioned efforts have often proved counterproductive. Justifying her extremist polemics, at CPAC 2002, Coulter argued that moving ever further right would pull people from the left to the center. Instead, her polemical approach pushed the left further left, exacerbating the political and cultural divide which plagues America today.

Coulter fuels the fires and fans the flames of hostile polemical rhetoric so palpable in contemporary America. Yet, she feels no guilt or shame and accepts no responsibility for her behavior and her role in the deterioration of political discourse in America.

Impenitent, not Irredeemable

Even though Coulter remains impenitent, she is not irredeemable. God loves … even Ann.

There are encouraging signs. Ann’s commentary appears much more factual and far less polemical than at the height of her career. Her verbal and Twitter outbursts of rage are less frequent. Certain anecdotal evidence gives me hope that Ann may be turning toward God, who alone can heal her brokenness.

My dear readers, please pray for Ann’s redemption and healing this Christmas season.

May God bless you all, bless Ann, bless President Trump, and bless this great nation.

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 positive and negative aspects of Coulter’s life and career.

God Loves … Even YOU, @AnnCoulter!

Dear Ann,

You are well aware of the many criticisms directed at you in my latest book, Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged. You also know of the praise and encouragement contained within that book.

Permit me to, again, offer you hope!

Your failures, faults, and foibles all derive from your soul-deep self-identities. They, in turn, are your way of coping with the deepest wounds of your past and your deep insecurities – which you hide from others by various means. Your arrogance and hubris mask the emotional turmoil raging within you.

Narcissism is so very unbecoming. So, too, are hardened hearts and closed minds.

Yet, Ann, despite all of your failures and all of your psychological dysfunctions, you remain a very gifted person.

You are clever, though not wise. You have a wealth of knowledge, yet can be an ignorant know-it-all like @AOC. You are an accomplished wordsmith who, all too often, uses your words injudiciously. Often, you have keen insights, yet, you also often go astray due to your obsessive self-identities, those you have created as a raison d’etre and to hide your wounds and brokenness.

Your self-identities, as identified and explained in Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged, have warped your worldview and imprisoned you in a prison of your own making. As a consequence, you have alienated people from across the political spectrum and severed many personal and professional relationships with individuals and organization who were once enthralled by you.

But, take heart, there is hope. You can be restored. Your wounds and brokenness can be healed. Your calloused heart and closed mind can be made whole again.

Will you listen? Will you take heed? Will you allow humility to conquer your hubris?

God loves you. Yes – YOU!

Will you accept His love? Will you allow His love to transform your life? Will you follow His will instead of your own?

Until you do, you are and will remain Dead Ann Walking!

Your REAL Identity

Who are you? If you knew the Bible as well as you know 1984, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and Alien Nation, then you would know who you are.

Throughout Scripture, God tells us over and over again who we are. If we have been redeemed by Christ and Jesus lives in us, then we are beloved children of God.

In John 15:9, Jesus tells His disciples, “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you.”

Ann, accept Jesus’ love and live in His love.

Several videos exquisitely convey the significance of what it means to have one’s identity in Christ. Among them, Our Identity in Christ, Your Identity in Christ, 101 Truths about our identity (position) in Christ, Identity in Christ Scripture Meditation, Identity in Christ, Identity in Christ, How God sees you in Christ, Identity in Christ, and Who Am I (Know Your Identity in Christ).

Therefore, our true identity – both our sense of self and our sense of worth – are found and bound up in Jesus Christ and only Jesus Christ.

Jesus is our only hope for freedom. “So, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).

God is infinite. Nothing is impossible with Him. And His love for His children is everlasting. When we forget who He is and who we are, we become lost, bewildered, and alone. But when we remember that we are the beloved children of an infinite God, everything changes.

If you are in Christ, never forget who you are and that your identity is found in Him.

If you are not in Christ, go to Him, repent, seek forgiveness and transformation, and rest in Him!

Author and evangelist Timothy Keller exhorts Christians “to live as the adopted sons and daughters of God secure in the abiding and abundant love of their heavenly Father (Rom. 8:15-17; 31-39).”[1]

Countless worship songs express God’s infinite love and unfathomable grace for His people. Among them are Casting Crowns’ Only Jesus, Lauren Daigle’s You Say, Sidewalk Prophets’ Come to the Table, Hawk Nelson’s Drops in the Ocean, Francesca Battistelli’s He Knows My Name, Melody Noel’s Mistakes, Matthew West’s Mended, and MercyMe’s Flawless.[2]

Let There Be Light in your life, flowing from God, through you, to others!

The more we limit God by putting Him in a box, the more limitations we place on ourselves. The more we have a diminished view of God, the more we place Him, ourselves, and others in ever-smaller boxes. But with an exalted view of God, we have a liberating view of Him, ourselves, and others.

With a limitless God, not the sky, but heaven itself is the only limit to our dreams.

Take heart, Ann! The best is yet to come – if you will see yourself and the world through God’s eyes and embrace His unfathomably deep, boundless, and everlasting love for you.

Please reread Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged with an intent to (re)establish a relationship with our Father in heaven, who deeply loves you and desires the best for you in this life and the next.

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis in this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter has become the person she is today.

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.

[2]           A colleague of Ann’s once asked me, “She doesn’t care about you. Why do you care about her?” Let me answer that question this way: Every human being has been rebellious to God. Everyone has sinned against Him and let Him down. Nevertheless, He still loves us with an unfailing love. If I – as a fallen human being who has seen the dark side of Ann up close and personal – if I can care for her, how much more does our Father in heaven, filled with everlasting love, love her with a perfect love?

CoulterWatch Goes on Hiatus

My dear readers,

CoulterWatch will go on hiatus for one month – February – taking a mini-sabbatical.

Hiatus

Would you be so kind as to do something for me?

Last year, Ann Coulter oscillated between exemplary commentary and hellish behavior. Ann appears to be on a positive path right now and my request is that you join me in prayer for her: that God may minister to her heart, soul, and spirit. Pray for her spiritual, emotional, and intellectual healing. Pray that God enlighten Ann and strengthen her to follow the path that He places before her.

And pray for me, that God continue to grant His peace, grace, and fresh insight, that He guide and direct my steps this coming year, and that my heart might be united more fully with His.

Thank you, my dear readers.

This blog will remain up and running with already published material available for your comments. Please feel free to email me with any suggestions, observations, recommendations, and – oh, alright – complaints.

In the meantime, I will continue to post items (unrelated to Coulter) on my other blog, BrotherWatch. Please feel free to check it out.

Thank you, again, in advance.

Yours in liberty,

Dan Borchers
