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.

@AnnCoulter, NOT @Drudge, is the #WackyNutJob

Ann Coulter calls President Trump a coward for not calling Matt Druge a #WackyNutJob.

Ann, not Matt, is the wacky one!

Coulter is the Real Culprit!

But it is Coulter – not Drudge – who has done the following:

Coulter wrote a book, In Trump We Trust, and, for three years, has not trusted Trump.

Coulter wrote a book, Resistance Is Futile, and has joined the (futile) Resistance as one of its most vocal and virulently hostile critics of Trump.

Coulter had a lengthy, infective-filled shouting match with the President – in the Oval Office – and is actually proud of her moment of ignomy.

Coulter is the alleged “conservative” who has, over the course of three years, threatened and bullied the President of the United States with impeachment if he does not do exactly what she wants done the way she wants it accomplished.

Coulter is the alleged “journalist” who has engaged in a nasty name-calling campaign against President Trump for three years, vilifying his character, integrity, intelligence, and America First agenda. No reputable, objective journalist would do that! (Is Ann auditioning for CNN?)

Highlights of Coulter’s Invective Against Trump

“Our candidate is mental. Do you realize our candidate is mental?” – Ann Coulter!

In a rather strange interview with Politico, Coulter expressed her frequent frustration with Trumpgetting the details wrong” and going off-script. So much so that Coulter said three times: “I wanted to shoot my TV.”

On the Sean Hannity Show (11/15/16), Coulter declared:

“The wall and deporting illegals … renegotiating trade deals and not starting pointless wars – those are the big ones. If he betrays us on those, they’ll impeach him and there’ll be nobody to defend him.”

According to The Times, Coulter told Trump, “I’m the only one losing money trying to get you in the White House, you’re going to listen to me.” After Trump’s immigration flip-flop, a piqued Coulter joked, “He just said something stupid, which he’s done before, and he will do again … he does need a little slap now and then.”

“Then it will be a bloodbath. Not only Trump, but also the entire GOP, is dead if he doesn’t build a wall. … It would be an epic betrayal … If he can’t do that, Trump is finished, the Republican Party is finished, and the country is finished.” – Ann Coulter, 4/26/17

“If you defend this man [Trump], I am coming down to your studio and holding your head under water until the bubbles stop.” – Ann Coulter, 5/3/17

“I think all of the Trump true believers are petrified.” – Ann Coulter, 5/14/17

“I am mad at the emperor God over this. He’s behaving like an infant.” – Ann Coulter, 7/26/17

“Trump is the worst negotiator I’ve ever seen.” – Ann Coulter, 9/14/17

“It is 100% his fault [that he isn’t building a wall]. … This is 100% Trump’s fault. The blame has to be laid at his feet so innocent Republicans don’t get blamed for this. … It is 100% Donald J. Trump’s fault that there is no wall and that he’s trying to push amnesty now.” – Ann Coulter, 9/15/17

“In order to prove he doesn’t have dementia, as alleged in a recent book, President Trump called a meeting with congressional leaders on Tuesday – and requested that it be televised. … He then proceeded to completely sell out the base and actually added to his problems by appearing senile.” – Ann Coulter, 1/10/18

I knew he was a shallow, lazy ignoramus, and I didn’t care.” – Ann Coulter, 3/27/18

“Trump’s claim that he was pulling out of the Iran deal in order ‘to protect America’s national security interests’ is a big, fat lie.” – Ann Coulter, 5/9/18

“[Trump] has a suck-up personality.” – Ann Coulter, 8/29/18

“The Swamp has succeeded beyond its wildest dreams. Trump seems to have completely forgotten about the one policy the left fears most.” – Ann Coulter, 9/5/18

“If he offered to pardon witnesses in exchange for their agreement to blame Steve Bannon for shooting Kushner – again: excellent example of obstruction of justice … But Trump hasn’t shot Kushner, and he probably won’t, since he doesn’t even realize that Kushner is wrecking his presidency.” – Ann Coulter, 9/13/18

“I’ve been a little upset with the president for keeping – let’s see – none of his promises.” – Ann Coulter, 10/17/18

“If Trump doesn’t keep his immigration promises, Hillary might as well have won. Trump will leave no legacy whatsoever. Without a wall, he will only be remembered as a small cartoon figure who briefly inflamed and amused the rabble.” – Ann Coulter, 11/28/18

Essay title: “GUTLESS PRESIDENT IN WALL-LESS COUNTRY” – Ann Coulter, 12/19/18

“Either Trump never intended to build a wall and was scamming voters from the beginning or he hasn’t the first idea in how to get it done and no interest in finding out. My prediction is his support will evaporate and Trump will very likely not finish his term and definitely not be elected to a second term.” – Ann Coulter, 12/19/18

“But you’ve chickened out. The only edifice you have built is constructed of tweets, press conferences and speeches.” – Ann Coulter, 1/23/19

“The longer our border stays open, the more I think Trump colluded with Russia.” – Ann Coulter, 2/12/19

“Look – the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” – Ann Coulter, 2/15/19

“The bill President Trump signed last Friday is worse than anything Hillary could ever have gotten through Congress.” – Ann Coulter, 2/20/19

“Hey liberals! Hot tip for you: You want to go after Trump? Point out he hasn’t kept any of his promises.” – Ann Coulter, 3/24/19

“No collusion and no wall. I’d prefer collusion and a wall.” – Ann Coulter, 3/25/19

Essay title: “ALL THE PRESIDENT’S BLOODSUCKING RELATIVES” – Ann Coulter, 4/17/19

“It turns out that instead of taking us away from hell, he’s zigzagging all over creation, sometimes getting stuck in a parking lot, sometimes heading straight for hell, then suddenly taking a left at the last minute, so that it’s never clear where we’re headed.” – Ann Coulter, 5/8/19

“Throughout 2016, we gave Trump cheese crackers every time he said, ‘Build the Wall!’ Yet, as with the Myna bird, it turns out he lacks any comprehension of what those words mean.” – Ann Coulter, 5/20/19

“Instead of Kobach, who could have saved the country, Trump appointed a series of imbeciles, who managed to engineer the worst immigration crisis in the nation’s history.” – Ann Coulter, 6/26/19

Yes, Ann, YOU are the #WackyNutJob!

@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.

Ann Coulter & Joy Reid Really Are Twins! (Pro-Abortion Edition)

Joy Reid is fanatically pro-abortion. But what of Ann Coulter? The answer might surprise you.

Separated at Birth 3

Just one Reid quote: “This isn’t pro-life; it’s forced birth.”

Ann claims, “I am totally pro-life,”[1] and explains why: “I’m pro-life, because I think it is a human, so yeah, I think the fetus can be protected.”[2]

But is she really pro-life? If so, why has she been at odds with the pro-life movement for fully two decades?

In 2000, Coulter vilified GOP presidential candidate Gary Bauer and other pro-lifers who were seeking a constitutional remedy to abortion. Her essay was titled, “Must Christian conservatives be fascists?” Coulter’s purpose was to preserve George W. Bush’s candidacy from the wrath of the abortion industry.

Ever since, Coulter has subordinated pro-life considerations to whatever matters she considers more immediate or more expedient. Coulter has, in fact, rejected many potential pro-life candidates for others she deemed more electable.[3]

For purely political reasons, Coulter blamed pro-lifers for Republican defeat in 2012, writing, “Can you learn to say, ‘no exceptions’ or rather, ‘no abortions with exceptions for rape, incest and the life of the mother?’ Learn that. Memorize that. Stop waxing philosophical when you’re running to make laws.”[4]

Yes, Coulter blamed pro-lifers for Romney’s defeat: “The last two weeks of the campaign were consumed with discussions of women’s ‘reproductive rights,’ not because of anything Romney did, but because these two idiots [Akin and Mourdock] decided to come out against abortion in the case of rape and incest.”

Moreover, Coulter thinks life in the womb is a “philosophical” argument and wants pro-lifers to be pragmatic by permitting human beings who are conceived in rape to be aborted. Coulter’s disregard for human life is clear in her pretzel-twisted logic:

“No law is ever going to require a woman to bear the child of her rapist. Yes, it’s every bit as much a life as an unborn child that is not the product of rape. But sentient human beings are capable of drawing gradations along a line.”

Gradations? Coulter refuses to drawn the clear and distinct lines that science and scripture dictate: human life is human from the point of conception.

Yet Ann (“I am totally pro-life”) Coulter continues to attack pro-lifers.

Coulter has written multiple tweets and columns questioning the motives – and character – of Republicans opposed to abortion. Coulter calls them “pathetic,” “weak-kneed” “sissies” and “pussies” trying “to prove their toughness by being pro-life.”

Coulter demonstrated her unscrupulousness and willingness to betray any principle for the sake of political expediency, tweeting, “I don’t care if @realDonaldTrump wants to perform abortions in White House after this immigration policy paper. http://bit.ly/1EvT3Ja.”[5]

Coulter passionately attacked conservatives for pursuing a pro-life agenda. Coulter began her rant ridiculing those who seek to defend the lives of the unborn by saying, “I am getting very, very bored with [conservatives] being bad asses on abortion.”

“these Republicans who want to prove what hairy-chested conservatives they are by endlessly talking about immigration [she meant abortion]. No, we have won that, Republicans. We have won it within the Republican Party and that’s all we’re gonna be able to win it in until Roe v. Wade is overturned.”

“They are cowards. They’re unimaginative. They’re not very smart.”

“… their big thing is to keep talking about this abortion thing. Well, that’s great if it were 1977. I’d think you’re really brave and you’re doing a great thing. But I kind of think you’re just a putz imitating what was good forty years ago at this point.”[6]

For Coulter, it is never the right time to defend the unborn,[7] to help those who are regarded as somehow “below human.”

Why would Ann, who often treats people out of the womb so callously, care about those who are still in the womb?

RIP Nell Husbands Martin Coulter

The death of Mother devastated Ann Coulter.

Following Mother’s death, Ann published a very personal, poignant, and often political eulogy.

In her eulogy, Ann mourned the loss her of “true No. 1 fan” who “was the biggest fan of” her entire family. Mother “was a little love machine, spreading warmth and joy wherever she went.” Mother loved hugging her daughter and telling her “what a wonderful, precious daughter” Ann was.

Ann felt safe and secure in her mother’s love: “My whole life, as soon as I’d see my mother’s face I’d know I was safe, whether I was a little girl lost in a department store or a big girl with a problem, who needed her mother.”

This Mother-Daughter love was very real.

A devoted daughter, Ann took excellent care of Mother during her declining years as she battled ovarian cancer. Ann even postponed publication of her seventh book, Guilty, to tend to her mother’s needs.

Ann understandably misses Mother’s “constant, unconditional love.”

In many ways, Ann emulates Mother (often to an extreme). In other ways, Ann repudiates Mother (often in extremist ways). Today, Mother would be both proud of, and perturbed by, her daughter.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Ann and Mother both cherished their New England and Southern roots. Coulter’s prized genealogical roots all trace through Mother: New England Puritans and Daughters of the American Revolution, coupled with a solid Southern heritage.

Mother wanted to be specifically remembered for her “contributions to the Republican Party, the New Canaan Republican Town Committee and the Daughters of the American Revolution.”

“Mother may have thought her most notable characteristic was her Republican activism,” Coulter wrote, emphasizing her “deep-seated political activism” and being “always delighted to be with people talking about politics.”

Sounds a lot like Ann.

Mother was very proud to be “a direct descendant of at least a dozen patriots who served the cause of the American Revolution.” In fact, she “traced her lineage on both sides of her family to Puritan nonconformists who came to America in 1633 seeking religious freedom on a ship led by Pastor Thomas Hooker.”

Coulter, as she typically does, takes everything to extremes. Ann is so proud of her heritage as a Daughter of the American Revolution that she regards herself as a “settler” – and a “Native American.”

Ann also regards herself – a WASP – as a true American. (Hence her nativist and xenophobic impulses.) She treasures her Puritan roots, making her a self-identified authority on all things American.

Moreover, Ann is proud of Mother’s Southern roots, praising Mother’s “fighting Kentucky spirit” and “charming Southern accent.”

Coulter lauds the Confederacy whenever she can and tweeted (8/3/16): “Southerners accounted for 38 percent of those killed in Iraq and 47 percent in Afghanistan.” She then asked Gov. Haley: “How about Nikki put their flag back up?”

In other words, Coulter contends that Southerners who died in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan were fighting for the Confederacy!

Coulter continued: “The Confederate flag won’t lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans, as Muslim immigration does. The only danger posed by the Confederate flag is that media elites will hold the South in even greater contempt than they already do, assuming that’s possible.”

Yes, Coulter equates Southerners with Confederates and believes that our brave military members from the South are currently fighting for the Confederacy and not for America!

Thus, Coulter has become the face of the Alt-Right movement, seeking restoration of a distinctly white WASP America while, simultaneously, promoting a neo-Confederate worldview.

Unlike Mother …

Mother was generous. Mother “probably contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to various conservative outfits over the years.” Ann, not so much.

Ann’s generosity extends to helping those who can help her.

If she can get something out of it – self-promotion, praise, paycheck, book sale, networking connection – Ann will do it. Otherwise – if it does not personally benefit her – forget it.

Mother was compassionate. Since she “was a little girl,” Ann saw that “friends, relatives and neighbors would bring their problems to Mother.” Why? Because Mother “had a rare combination of being completely moral and completely nonjudgmental at the same time” and would give “good counsel” without making others feel worse about themselves.

As for Ann, well, her entire career is based upon wounding other people. Given a choice between fact and polemic, Ann usually chooses the latter.

Mother valued human life. She was a “gentle lady” who “never had an unkind word for anyone.” In fact, “Father would always smile and say, ‘Your mother defends everyone.’”

Mother was proud of Ann for her pro-life speech presented before a Roman Catholic women’s group in New Canaan, CT, and later published in Human Life Review and various essay collections nationwide.

Now, though claiming, “I am totally pro-life,” Ann passionately attacks conservatives and Christians for pursuing a pro-life agenda.

As far back as the late 1990s, Coulter began attacking pro-lifers for purely political purposes. In reality, Coulter would have pro-lifers do nothing and let the unborn fend for themselves!

Mother was a devout Christian. Faith figured prominently in Mother’s life. She was very active in her local church and her faith was important enough to her that she faithfully turned her daughter to Presbyterianism.

In her moving eulogy, Ann emphasized Mother’s Republican activism and DAR lineage. Surprisingly, Ann missed Mother’s Christian beliefs. She utterly ignored her Mother’s faith.

Though claiming, “I’m an extraordinarily good Christian,” Ann has attacked Christians for most of the past two decades. She even attacks Christians for being godly!

Ann lovingly gave honor to Mother with her words, but in her life Coulter dishonors Mother.

Gone Astray

As I wrote last year:

I suspect that Ann never really believed in the Christian ideals and conservative principles she espoused. Indeed, she was not the “true believer” everyone believed her to be. Rather, she adopted those ideals and principles from her parents, whom she loved. Her father died in 2008; her mother in 2009. Since then, Ann’s moral and spiritual compass no longer exists. Ann is being tossed to and fro by the pragmatism of the moment and the passing whims of her heart.”

“Coulter hates conservatives, Christians, and pro-lifers for being what they are because she once believed she belonged in those categories. Now, whenever these people of principle act on their principles, she is put to shame as a charlatan. They expose Coulter for who she really is – a fraud.”

“Will Ann always be a fraud? Only God knows and only He can bring meaning and direction to her life. Unless and until Ann courageously faces the reality of who she has become and fights the good fight of faith to become the person God has called her to be, she will always be filled with hate and fear.”

“May God grant Ann repentance and transform her heart.”

Yes, Ann Hart Coulter has, indeed, lost the moorings of her parents’ presence, principles, and piety. Her heart is now turned in the wrong direction, away from God and opposed to His will. Whether or not she knows it, Ann has rejected God and His will for her life.

Instead, the “Emperor-God Trump” is her Savior. Coulter has rejected God and arrogantly placed her will above His.

Coulter recently said that with Mother’s passing, she can now say anything she wants to. She claimed, “I really am the freest person in America right now. I can say anything.”

The Easter season reminds us that we are all equal before the cross and that we must humble ourselves before the One who saves.

Obviously, humility eludes Ann. Her hubris abhors humility because 1) she rejects its efficacy and 2) she regards it as a sign of weakness.

Here’s the rub: Without humility, salvation is impossible. We must humbly come to the cross to accept God’s love and salvation. Until we do, we are not saved and we will never have peace.

Our Father’s Love

Ann praised Mother for her “unconditional love.” Mother was loving – and loved.

Mother’s love actually points to our heavenly Father’s perfect unconditional love. But only God perfectly expresses and exhibits unconditional love. Mothers can come close, but imperfectly.

Our Father has a perfect love, presence, and power. Trust Him!

In her eulogy, Ann expressed reassurance that Mother and Father were reunited in heaven and that she would see them both in time.

Revelation 21:4 reveals: “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

I pray that God wipes away all of Ann’s tears, from whatever source.

Ann Coulter – POWERless?

Once among the most powerful women in American politics, Ann Coulter has become arguably the most hated and most mockable woman in America.

powerless

In a remarkable interview for Politico, Coulter claimed: “I don’t care about power. I don’t care about credit.” She added, “I couldn’t care less,” asserting, “I intensely don’t care about that.”

That would be a first.

Coulter has always cared about power and always cared about credit. So much so that she has sought power most of her adult life and claimed credit where it is not due. Coulter is an elite’s elite who loves wielding power.

According to an ex-boyfriend of Coulter’s from the late 1990s, “She became infatuated with her exploding celebrity, and really got caught up in that Republican heroine thing, and forgot that it was shtick.” (My own observations these past twenty years validate his assessment.)

That remarkable Politico interview included this breathtaking claim, “I really just want to save America.” That is precisely what Coulter has been trying to do for two decades. To accomplish her goals, Coulter has – again, for two decades – attacked pro-lifers, Christians, and conservatives who even potentially stand in the way of her agenda.

Hence her growing irrelevancy within the conservative movement. Some organizations now shun her. Some friends now disown her. Why? Because Ann Coulter cannot be trusted.

Just this election cycle, Coulter 1) fervently campaigned for Paul Nehlen (WI), who lost in a stunning defeat; 2) had her own presidential candidate sabotage her paean to Trump; 3) published a book which failed to make the New York Times bestseller list despite all of the advantages inherent in releasing a pro-Trump book during a volatile election year; and 4) was humiliated at the Roast of Ann Coulter with Rob Lowe.

But if Coulter’s claim of not caring about power is true, well, then that’s a good thing for Coulter because she’s rapidly becoming powerless.

GOP Base is Fringe

Coulter recently gave a stunning description of the GOP base. She claims it is a “teeny, tiny base” composed of religious zealots and extremist pro-lifers!

gop-base-is-fringe

Coulter defended charges that Trump is “not a real Republican” by saying (emphasis added), “I don’t want someone appealing just to the base. Somebody appealing just to the base is, you know, handling tongues and having raptures on stage and is saying, like Marco Rubio, correcting Megyn Kelly, that, ‘No, I don’t support abortion in the case of rape and incest.’ Oh, good grief. Did he not remember – did he not live through Todd Akin? No, that’s sucking up to a teeny, tiny base.”

Yes, Coulter’s gunsights are aimed at Christian conservatives and pro-lifers – whom she claims represent “a teeny, tiny base.” Alert readers will gather that Ted Cruz is the specific object of her wrath. (Cruz, of course, is solidly pro-life and unabashedly Christian.)

Beginning with the 2000 presidential election cycle, Coulter has actively opposed pro-lifers for what she regards as politically pragmatic purposes. Nevertheless, Coulter told a Politicon audience, “I’m an evangelical pro-lifer. I don’t need my president speaking in tongues.” Yes, she again blended the pro-life movement with evangelical Christians. (Coulter even claims to be an “evangelical pro-lifer,” even though evidence for her being either a Christian or a pro-lifer is scant.)

Using her recurring ugly stereotype on the Nowman Show (6/25/16), Coulter argued, “[Trump] doesn’t have religious ecstasies on stage. He doesn’t speak in tongues.” Coulter will say anything to destroy Cruz.

Sadly, time after time, Coulter attacks Christians for behaving as Christians are supposed to behave – in a godly manner. Why? Political expediency? To justify her own ungodly behavior?

Coulter hated every GOP candidate but Trump – who isn’t even a Republican! Moreover, her mission was and remains to destroy the GOP. Coulter’s latest broadside against the GOP base is in keeping with her ultimate goal. She does, after all, want to form a New Trump Party.
