.@AnnCoulter Joins @TheAtlantic and #LincolnProject to Smear Donald Trump

Fresh off a ten-day Twitter suspension, #TDS-addled Ann Coulter again trashed President Trump, suggesting he has broken his promises regarding the military and ending pointless wars.

Shockingly, Coulter’s assertions feed in to the bogus hit piece against Trump by The Atlantic and suggests she is in league with the Lincoln Project to bring down the Trump presidency.

Anyone with a brain can see that Trump has been the first president in many decades to refrain from starting new wars and ending old ones. Indeed, her churlish criticism of Trump is at odds with Trump’s nomination for a well-earned Nobel Peace Prize.

Nothing satisfies Ann Coulter.

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.[1]

@AnnCoulter Still Enraged at CPAC Rejection

Polemicist Ann Coulter remains enraged at CPAC for its six-year-long rejection of her, despite the fact that she is wholly responsible for her plight. Over many years, Coulter snookered, scammed, and betrayed CPAC … yet she still feels entitled to speak at CPAC.

How blind arrogance can be!

Since even before 2014 (her last appearance at CPAC), Coulter has disparaged CPAC for not being conservative enough. Even in 2020, Coulter has tweeted multiple times attacking CPAC.

Here’s one:

For years, Coulter’s ego fed upon her self-identity as the darling of CPAC and, now that CPAC has resoundingly rejected her, she acts like the stereotypical scorned woman.

Her devoted fans seem immune to the irony and puzzled by the fact that CPAC has also banished RINO Mitt Romney. Coulter was devoted to Romney for fully a decade or more, this despite him calling himself an “extreme conservative” (at CPAC, no less) – as if any conservative would self-identify as extreme.

Let’s review what happened. (Facts matter.)

CPAC Shunned Coulter in 2015 and Ann was Incensed

In 2015, for the first time in 18 years, Ann Coulter was not invited to speak at CPAC.

CPAC Finally Rejected Coulter, despite many factors in her favor:

Longevity. Coulter has spoken at every CPAC conference from 1998-2014.

Coulter was the author of ten books (nine were best-sellers) with an eleventh book to be released this June.

Coulter was the legal correspondent for Human Events, author with Regnery, and a speaker for the Young America’s Foundation, the Claire Boothe Luce Policy Institute, and the College Republicans, all represented at CPAC.

Many of Coulter’s powerful friends were speakers at CPAC and associated with the leadership at CPAC.

Still, CPAC snubbed Coulter. Why?

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 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. (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.[1]

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

Coulter has a long history of betraying friends,[2] colleagues,[3] and clients.[4] 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 – that CPAC would still be obligated to invite her to speak in subsequent years.

Coulter’s Ego Wounded

As a self-absorbed narcissist, Coulter feels entitled to speak at CPAC, no matter what she has said or done in the past. That sense of entitlement has been apparent for more than a decade.

In 2014, Coulter was irate that she was invited to only a debate (even though she was able to pick her debate partner, her friend, Mickey Kaus). Coulter did not want to settle for a debate. She wanted to give a speech.

Coulter then took the grace extended by CPAC and “scammed” them.

In 2015, even though she was justifiably not invited, Coulter extended her wrath toward CPAC.

Coulter on the Offensive

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.

(Instead of accusing CPAC of conspiring to silence her, Coulter should have acted like a lady and either demurred to answer or acknowledged the wealth of talented professionals available to speak at CPAC. As for CPAC, ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp responded with grace: “Ann Coulter is welcome at CPAC. We come up with the agenda. There’s so many speaking slots; you go through who would be a good fit. She’s a great fit here. She’s welcome to be here.”)

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

In the top tweet, Coulter mocked CPAC, a sure strategy to elicit their future support.

In the next tweet, Coulter boasted of her popularity, not a particularly endearing trait.

In the third tweet, Coulter again claimed that the reason for her exclusion from CPAC is amnesty. This is a red herring. That year, CPAC repeatedly addressed amnesty. Many of the speakers, including presidential candidates, spoke of amnesty. Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio were specifically queried about their views on immigration.

Coulter also tweeted what she had emailed to the Washington Examiner: “I’ll be the Bibi Netanyahu of CPAC!”

Chutzpah!

CPAC has discovered that we should Never Trust Ann Coulter – at ANY Age![5]

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.

@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: From Jingoist to Pacifist

In the space of a few short years, Coulter turned from being a neoconservative zealot to a Fortress America fanatical isolationist and pacifist.

Her current isolationist and nativist obsession with “pointless wars” in foreign lands leads her inevitably to conclude that World War II was also a pointless war.

Coulter’s foreign policy heart lies with that of one of her mentors, Patrick Buchanan.

During the Clinton presidency, Coulter continually denounced the administration’s use of military force overseas, arguing that it was not in our national interest.

In 1997, Coulter said, “I don’t think we should be trying to go around and be the world’s Policeman because you can guess wrong. I mean, we can’t create a beautiful constitutional democracy across the world.”[1]

Bur for fully a decade following 9/11, Coulter was the fiercest armchair war hawk in America. Toward the end of the Obama presidency, Coulter reversed course, returning to her Buchananite foreign policy roots. (She could easily join the “War Is Not the Answer” crowd if it were more pro-American.)

Once a zealous moral and cultural conservative and fervently pro-life – “There’s almost no conversation I couldn’t turn into an abortion discussion.”[2]Coulter turned her back on the unborn for most of the past two decades. Instead, the political realm possessed Coulter, and, following 9/11, Coulter attacked everyone.

My first essay critical of Coulter in BrotherWatch (January 2002) began with these words:

Following the 9/11 terrorist attack, controversial “conservative” columnist Ann Coulter – best known as that “acid-tongued blonde” wearing her trademark micro mini-skirts – appeared to descend into madness. Cutting edge went over the edge. Coulter declared a two-front war against terrorists and liberals. – Right Wing Warrior Princess

Coulter’s stance on the Korean Peninsula is emblematic of her approach to geopolitics. She also hates our pro-Israel policies and would just as well jettison the War on Terror completely. (Coulter always frames terrorist threats as immigration threats,[3] having absolutely no solutions to the domestic threat posed by ISIS and ISIS-inspired terrorists currently in America.)[4]

Of course, her Fortress America paradigm blindly dismisses the very real and existential threats facing America today and in the near future posed by terrorists and tyrannical, America-hating regimes around the world.

Coulter now denounces the Reagan Doctrine’s formulation of “peace through strength” and she appears oblivious to the renaissance of peace and prosperity which Americans enjoy today – due to Trump’s emulation of Reagan’s proven policies.

Coulter’s single-minded fixation with immigration and a wall has given her a myopic perspective on reality and the world in which we live. She has tunnel vision – like a horse with blinders on – and is oblivious to anything which does not fit her own pet paradigm.

As is always the case, anyone who disagrees with her perspective and agenda is a traitor or evil – even though she herself has completely reversed many of her positions over the past two decades. (At one point or another, she could have called herself a traitor.)

Coulter went berserk over Trump’s visit to the Wailing Wall:

On the eve of Trump’s major prime time national address regarding a national crisis on our southern border, Coulter reversed her position, issuing a series of nonsensical tweets attacking President Trump.

The following chart encapsulates a few of Coulter’s transitions and key transformative periods during Coulter’s professional career as a “journalist.”

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.

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.
