Coulter’s Unrequited Love

Ann Coulter’s latest, deepest, and most sorrowful love is Donald Trump.

Coulter’s Unrequited Love

As reported in The Times (emphasis added):

“At present, though, as near as I can tell, the great love of her life is Donald Trump. ‘I’ve been doing nothing but watching Trump on TV,’ she says. ‘I wish there was a Trump channel where you could just watch him 24 hours a day. I’d never sleep.’”

Seriously? Believe it.

When she was asked to describe her actual relationship with Trump, Coulter replied, “Blind worship.”[1] Coulter amplified her answer, “It’s a little like the North Korean people with their dear, dear leader.”

Coulter eagerly admits that she would actually like to marry him! Yes, marry! “I totally would [marry Trump if he were single].”

What is it that sets Ann’s heart all aflutter? Well, it all began with “that Mexican rapist speech [that] won my heart forever.” Huh? Again, “He won my heart with that Mexican rapist speech. That won me over.”[2]

OK.

Coulter’s Trump love is really self-love. Coulter said, “I also think he’s like the alpha male doppelganger of me.” Perhaps looking in the mirror, Coulter exclaimed, “Donald Trump, I love him because he does talk a little like me, which is to say, blunt.”[3]

For about a year, Coulter has called Trump “the greatest candidate for president ever”[4] and “the candidate I’ve been dreaming of.”[5]

Hers is a self-sacrificial love, according to The Times:

“For his sake, she says, she has been prepared to wreck her career. While he campaigned in the primaries, she followed him from state to state, appearing on local talk radio shows. She met with Trump and told him: ‘I’m the only one losing money trying to get you in the White House, you’re going to listen to me.’”

Well, maybe more demanding than self-sacrificial. Trump must toe her line. 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.” And Coulter is happy to do the slapping. (Sounds more like a nagging girlfriend than true love to me.)

In what could be termed a lovers’ spat, on the very day of Coulter’s book launch, Trump sabotaged her paean to him by betraying the central premise of her book and its raison d’etre. Trump flip-flopped on immigration.

Coulter-Trump Headlines

Did Trump pick that particular moment in time due to political expediency or to reverse his abysmal poll numbers? Or was it, perhaps, something more personal – a battle between two unyielding narcissists.

Ego vs. ego. Narcissist vs. narcissist.

Perhaps it was months of Coulter taking credit for Trump’s policies. As reported by Breitbart News, “Coulter’s last book, Adios, America, provided a blueprint of sorts for Trump’s campaign.”

Perhaps Trump bristles at the thought of Coulter being called “Trump’s Brain.”

Perhaps it was the Times headline: “The woman who tells Donald Trump what to think.”

I'm in charge

In July 2015, acting like a petulant, jilted lover, Coulter grumbled, “Yes [Trump got an advance copy of Adios, America!], I’ve been broadcasting it like mad. I don’t know why he won’t admit it. … I’ve detailed everything he’s saying. He gives the campaign speeches on it. My book is the footnotes.”[6]

Now, over one year later, Trump truly jilted Coulter. (Trump hasn’t even read Coulter’s book-length love letter to him.)

Ann does not take rejection well.

Trump to Pick Coulter for VP

In a stunning develop, political pugilist Donald “The Donald” Trump will pick polemicist Ann “The Shock Jock” Coulter to be his running mate in his bid for Bully-in-Chief[1] of the United States of Trump.

Coulter as Trump's VP

At least one insider was nonplussed over this development, pointing out, “When they look at each other, it’s as if they’re looking into a mirror.”[2] Coulter agrees, saying, “Donald Trump, I love him because he does talk a little like me, which is to say, blunt.”[3] Moreover, “I’ve detailed everything he’s saying. He gives the campaign speeches on it. My book is the footnotes.”[4]

(Yes, Ann Coulter is the Leni Riefenstahl[5] of the Trump campaign’s propaganda[6] machine.)

Like Trump, Coulter forsakes the pro-life movement,[7] looks with disdain on immigrants,[8] and actually pursues non-conservative policies.[9] Oh, and they’re both    [10] bullies.[11] Coulter has certainly proven that she’s no better than Trump.[12]

Inquiring minds want to know if love is in the air. Early in Trump’s campaign, Coulter said, “I would like to be the head of Donald Trump’s Homeland Security.” An enraptured Ann later gushed, “I totally would [marry Trump if he were single].”[13] It looks like she may have to settle for vice president.

Denied (at least for now) a real marriage made in heaven, Coulter is presently part of a political one. Coulter declares, “Trump – the greatest candidate for president ever!”[14] Everything The Donald says and does is magnificent in Ann’s eyes. (Love is blind! But, bear in mind that Ann calls Trump her Savior and admits their relationship is one of “blind worship.”)[15]

Referring to Trump’s immigration policy, Coulter tweeted, “The greatest political document since the Magna Carta.” (Yes, Ann skipped over the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Washington’s Farewell Address, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, Lincoln’s Second Inaugural, etc.)

Coulter’s assessment of Trump’s recent foreign policy speech is equally hyperbolic (ALL CAPS on Twitter!): “GREATEST FOREIGN POLICY SPEECH SINCE WASHINGTON’S FAREWELL ADDRESS.”

Privately, Coulter entertains some doubts. In a brief moment of candor, Ann admitted that Trump is “mental,”[16] but, nonetheless, she still argues, “he’s magnificent now.”[17] (Perhaps they are both mental!)

Coulter has staked her career and what’s left of her tattered reputation[18] on a Trump victory and she has even renamed the GOP “the new Trump Republican Party.”[19] Indeed, Coulter admits, “I hope Donald Trump does destroy the Republican Party and we have a new pro-American Republican Party.”[20]

Even though Ann views herself as the Harriet Beecher Stowe of this New Trump Party,[21] becoming Vice President Coulter would be a splendid prize and honor which would only further increase her vanity.[22] Hubris is surely a trait Ann shares with Donald.[23] They are, after all, the elite of elites.[24]

Ann Coulter played the role of Vice President of the United States in Sharknado 3 and on a Fox News comedy show. Will she become the real thing?[25]

An Open Letter to Ann Coulter

Dear Ann:

You are willing to sacrifice all of your conservative principles and Christian beliefs to get Trump elected president, solely on the premise that Trump is the only candidate who is “good on immigration.” You admit that Trump is not a conservative and that he does lie.[1] Is Trump lying on immigration?

OpenLetter

Trump’s record and rhetoric on immigration suggest that he is lying about both the wall and deportation[2] of illegal immigrants.

Trump supported the Gang of Eight bill that you despise.

Trump hired illegal aliens at the expense of American workers.

Trump favors H-1B visas.

Trump would “negotiate” on both the wall and immigration.

Trump seeks touchback deportation to bring them back as quickly as possibleahead of the line: amnesty!

So, having sacrificed every principle and ideal you once held dear, you are supporting the one person you claim is good on immigration, and he is actually the worst on immigration.

If Trump wins the presidency, America gets a liberal similar to Hillary and amnesty![3]

You have sacrificed everything for nothing!

Moreover, you have viciously[4] attacked[5] the one candidate[6] who has a proven record of opposition to amnesty and fought for the preservation of American sovereignty: Ted Cruz![7]

You regard Trump as your and America’s Savior[8] and claim that you would marry Trump if he were available. You exalt Trump[9] above the heavens and absolve him of all his faults.

At the very same time, you demonize an actual conservative who is a strict constitutionalist and devout Christian and, ironically, is the only candidate who would do what you claim you want done about immigration.

Instead, you promote a bully[10] and a charlatan.[11]

If Trump wins the nomination and is victorious in the election, America has you to blame!

But it is not too late! Will you forsake your pride,[12] reverse course, and support the candidate who would actually do what you want to accomplish on immigration and who is also an actual conservative, constitutionalist, and Christian?

What is more important to you, Ann? Your pride or America’s future?

The Real Talking Head Twit of the Year

This week’s Coulter column, titled “Talking Head Twit of the Year Contest,” begs for the nomination of its writer as the winner.

Calling the GOP pundit class “clueless morons,” Coulter invites justifiable reciprocation.

Talking Head Twit

Coulter limited her critique of her peers to prognostications on Trump’s presidential campaign,[1] her singular obsession[2] this election cycle.

Ann Coulter Gems

Here are a few Coulter gems from the past year.

Absurdly, Coulter insists that the Great Depression “was the most prosperous period in American history.”[3]

Coulter has repeatedly denied (again,[4] and again,[5] and again,[6] and again,[7] and again,[8] and again,[9] and again[10]) the threat that ISIS poses to Americans in America.

Coulter’s infamous rant against Jews[11] cost her both speaking engagements and television appearances.[12] Her phony excuses[13] failed to convince others.

Coulter repeatedly attacks Catholics[14] for being Catholic.

Coulter repeatedly attacks Christians for being Christians. To Coulter, Christian missionaries are fake Christians.[15] She even attacks Christians for being godly![16] Coulter advocates for ignoring the ongoing Christian genocide[17] taking place in the Middle East.

Coulter repeatedly attacks[18] pro-lifers[19] for championing life.[20]

Coulter became a birther[21] to lie about Cruz’s eligibility for president.[22]

Coulter relishes calling other people bimbos, while inviting similar criticism.[23]

Coulter claimed that Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina[24] were popular candidates only because he is black and she is a woman. Tokens to political correctness.

Coulter’s Irrelevancy

In her column, Coulter lamented that GOP pundits “can … be so consistently wrong and never lose work.” Why does Coulter still have a job?

Of those pundits, Coulter asked, “why should we listen to you next time?” Why should we listen to Coulter?

Fortunately, a growing number of conservatives are beginning to see Coulter for who she really is.[25] Hence her growing irrelevancy.[26]

Ann Coulter announced a Talking Head Twit of the Year Contest and – surprise! – she won!

Coulter’s Know-Nothing American Party

Ann Coulter, head cheerleader for a new Know-Nothing American Party,[1] champions a faux conservative as America’s savior,[2] calling him a “real American,” as opposed to Trump’s opponents, and she again conflates being conservative with being Republican.

Coulter's Know-Nothing American Party

In her current column[3] – this week’s shtick – Coulter heralds yet another grand conspiracy theory, this one by the “liberal and conservative media.”

Coulter repeatedly attacks “conservative news outlet(s)” which break “fake Trump scandal(s),” decries “the ‘conservative’ media calling him a socialist, a Democrat, a flip-flopper, a fake conservative,” and asserts that all such accusations are merely “name-calling” and non-substantive.

According to Coulter, “the accusers never include examples, not true ones, anyway.” This is the exact same tactic Coulter used to defend Romney,[4] boldly asserting that Romney’s flip-flops and gaffes were all imaginary.[5]

Coulter again confuses “conservative” with “Republican,” regarding them as synonymous. One would think that she would have learned by now that electing RINOs[6] (the very non-conservative Republicans Coulter is prone to promote) does not further a conservative agenda.

Still, Coulter vilifies “Conservative pundits [who] keep assuring clueless viewers that Trump is not a ‘real Republican.’” Trump may be a “real” RINO, but he is not a conservative!

Nevertheless, Coulter envisions a time when the next generation will invoke “Trump Republicans[7] with adulation. (Ann, Trump = Rockefeller = Eastern.)

Coulter warps herself and her savior in the American flag to shield both of them from criticism for their non-conservative views. Coulter reprised her nativist[8] politics,[9] asking, “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a president who likes us more than he likes foreigners – and the rich donors who employ them?”

Coulter concludes her hit piece with this paragraph:

“Looking at what the party has become, I certainly hope he’s not a ‘real Republican.’ I know he’s a real American. Those used to be the same thing.”

Conservatives criticize Trump for not being a real conservative, not a real Republican. Further, Coulter suggests that anyone opposed to Trump is not a real American.

Real conservatives – those who defend the Constitution and support a traditional, biblically-grounded American culture – recognize the dangers of Trump’s anti-Constitutional, non-Christian, non-conservative approach[10] to solving the manifold problems besetting America today.

Birther Coulter Births More Lies

Erstwhile anti-birther Ann Coulter, worshiping at the idol of The Donald, has become the premiere birther attacking Ted Cruz. Why? She wants to scuttle Cruz’s presidential ambitions and stop his burgeoning support before her own Savior, Trump, loses the nomination.

Birther Ann Coulter

(Coulter has, after all, tied her future – and that of America[1]to a Trump victory,[2] however wise or foolish that might be.)

Just two days ago, Coulter burst out, “Thank God for raising up Donald Trump and giving us a chance to save the country.”[3]

It’s Really Not About Ted, But All About Ann

Seemingly on emotional steroids, Coulter has turned her attack dog persona on Trump’s most formidable Republican foe, all the while professing an “Ah, shucks, I don’t want to do this, but it’s the right thing to do” attitude even has she sticks a shiv in Ted’s side.

Coulter dodges claims that she changed position on Cruz’s eligibility solely to support Trump by asserting she took her current position prior to Trump’s candidacy. That is a red herring.

Just yesterday, Coulter wrote: “I said so long before Trump declared for president, back when Cruz was still my guy.”[4] Coulter claims, “It’s not that I want him not to be a Natural Born Citizen.”[5] Except, Coulter’s later claim is patently false and demonstrably untrue.

In reality, Coulter was obsessed with recruiting Romney for president, so much so that her close friend, Sean Hannity, was aghast at the depth of her obsession. Ted Cruz was becoming an impediment to Coulter’s plans for Romney.

Coulter first sought to disqualify Cruz as a presidential contender to force her idol, Mitt Romney, to run again[6] in 2016. At that time, she wanted Romney – and only Romney![7]

Now, she wants Trump – and only Trump![8]

In fact, just three days ago, Coulter boasted that she still wants a Trump-Romney ticket: “In fact, my ideal ticket is Trump-Romney. That’s what I’m really hoping for. That’s the dynamite combo.”[9]

Bob Woodward recently said, “History is character; behavior is character.”[10] Coulter’s history, and her behavior these past two decades, proves Coulter’s own lack of character.[11] Coulter lied about the Constitution and Supreme Court cases during the 2000 election[12] and she is doing the same thing now.

Why would Ann lie? Donald Trump[13] is her new political savior.[14] In Ann’s words: “[Donald Trump is] America’s savior.”[15]

Nevertheless, Coulter hypocritically attacks those who correctly interpret the Constitution, lamenting, “It’s kind of annoying me that we are all Ruth Bader Ginsburg now and people interpret the Constitution based on what they want the Constitution to say, not what it does say.”[16]

1608 or 1790; Blood or Soil?

According to Coulter, “In the U.S., also in Great Britain and in France, citizenship is determined by soil. … Congress can write laws for naturalization. That is also in the Constitution. But if Congress has to write a law to make you a citizen, you’re not natural born. … It is determined by a law written by Congress; not by the common law, not by the Constitution. So that is not natural born.”[17]

Except, the law written by Congress (and empowered by the Constitution) establishes who is natural born! In 1790, Congress established citizenship by blood.

Coulter asserts: “The phrase ‘natural born’ is a legal term of art that goes back to Calvin’s Case, in the British Court of Common Pleas, reported in 1608 by Lord Coke. The question before the court was whether Calvin – a Scot – could own land in England, a right permitted only to English subjects.”[18]

The case which Coulter cites – Calvin’s Case (1608) – has to do with English subjects, not citizens. Americans are not subjects. Our Founders took those portions of English common law with which they agreed and modified or dispensed with those portions which were incongruent with the new American constitutional system that they were creating.

Chief Justice Joseph Story wrote, in an 1829 Supreme Court opinion: “The common law of England is not to be taken, in all respects, to be that of America. Our ancestors brought with them its general principles, and claimed it as their birthright; but they brought with them and adopted, only that portion which was applicable to their situation.”

Coulter claims that a 1608 case in England is the basis for America’s definition of Natural Born Citizen.[19] Consequently, Coulter asserts that the 1790 law enacted by Congress is irrelevant. Does Coulter seriously believe that a 1790 American law enacted by the Founders is nullified by an English case law from 1608? Really?

According to the Yale Journal of Law and the Humanities (emphasis added), “In Britain, even before Calvin’s Case, various acts and proclamations provided that a child born out of the territory of England could also be a natural-born subject, as long as the child’s parents owed allegiance to the sovereign of England. This is an example of the jus sanguinis [blood] operating alongside the jus soli [soil]. In the history of both Britain and the United States, the jus sanguinis has always been established by statute, never by judge-made law.

The 1790 statute by Congress, which Coulter dismisses as “irrelevant,” precisely establishes the principle of right of blood which Coulter denies!

The Congressional Research Service published its findings on this issue (emphasis added):

“From historical material and case law, it appears that the common understanding of the term ‘natural born’ in England and in the American colonies in the 1700s may have included both the strict common law meaning as born in the territory (jus soli), as well as the statutory laws adopted in England since at least 1350, which included children born abroad to British fathers (jus sanguinis, the law of descent).”

Cleverly, Coulter very subtly suggests that those defending citizenship by blood are nascent Nazis, saying, “The two methods are soil or blood. Curiously, in Germany, it’s, it’s blood.”[20]

Coulter Lies About ANOTHER Supreme Court Case

Coulter writes: “As the Supreme Court said in Bellei, a case about the citizenship of a man born in Italy to a native-born American mother and an Italian father: ‘It is evident that Congress felt itself possessed of the power to grant citizenship to the foreign born and at the same time to impose qualifications and conditions for that citizenship.’”[21]

Coulter uses this case to prove her contention that Cruz is ineligible, when, in fact, it proves the opposite!

As noted in ROGERS v. BELLEI, (1971) (emphasis added):

“Section 301 (a) of the Act, 8 U.S.C. 1401 (a), defines those persons who ‘shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth.’ Paragraph (7) of 301 (a) includes in that definition a person born abroad ‘of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States’ who has met specified conditions of residence in this country.”

The plan thus adopted by Congress with respect to a person of this classification was to bestow citizenship at birth but to take it away upon the person’s failure to comply with a post-age-14 and pre-age-28 residential requirement. It is this deprival of citizenship, once bestowed, that is under attack here.”

“The very first Congress, at its Second Session, proceeded to implement its power, under the Constitution’s Art. I, 8, cl. 4, to ‘establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization’ by producing the Act of March 26, 1790, 1 Stat. 103. That statute, among other things, stated, ‘And the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States.’” [Subsequent statutes extended it to either a citizen mother or citizen father.]

Cruz Is Eligible!

Gary DeMar is perhaps the foremost expert on America’s Founders. DeMar recently offered a history of originalist thought on Natural Born Citizen and reached this stunning conclusion: “Ted Cruz [is] more of an American than some of the drafters of the Constitution.”

Coulter Lies About Supreme Court Case

Ann Coulter leads the charge of those seeking to crush a Cruz candidacy with a lie!

When she thought she could foist Romney on us again in 2016,[1] Coulter began to attack Cruz on his citizenship. With Cruz posing a serious threat to Trump, her new-found soul-mate,[2] Coulter has shifted into high gear, stridently claiming Cruz is ineligible to be president.[3]

Supreme Court Case

This isn’t Coulter’s first attempt at subverting the Constitution for political purposes.[4]

Backdrop: Elián González

The Elián González case became international political theater during the 2000 presidential race. It rekindled the Cold War in miniature. Coulter fed into that political hysteria by telling lies of her own, lies which fit into her own ideological sensibilities. Those lies included turning a Supreme Court decision on its head, claiming it said the exact opposite of what the Court decided.[5]

The heart and core of Coulter’s case for denying Juan Miguel González custody of his own son rested on Coulter’s decades-long belief that fathers have absolutely no rights or responsibilities to their own children except through marriage.

On talk TV – contrary to what the law actually says – Coulter continually insisted that putative fathers have no rights to their children: “The law used to account for these things by saying the father doesn’t have rights to a child unless he’s married to the mother. That’s how a man can claim his heritage and his claims on a child. … That’s how a father gets the right to children, by being married to the mother.”[6]

Coulter reaffirmed – again and again – that only marriage confers custodial rights: “First of all, the idea that a father has rights to a child by donating sperm; No! A father gains rights to a child by being married to the mother. … He has absolutely no rights to the child! Fathers gain rights to children by marrying the mothers.”[7]

The only problem with Coulter’s claims is that they are false. The law has always upheld the biological rights of fathers, irrespective of whether the child is born out-of-wedlock.

Lying About Supreme Court Cases

Coulter’s view of parental rights was her principal argument to separate a son from his father, but that core point of her position, that central concept, was an outright lie! To buttress that lie – which she has consistently expressed for almost twenty years – Coulter lied about a Supreme Court ruling which any layman can read and see that reaches the exact opposite conclusion. Coulter wrote:

“Let’s just consider the initial presumption that a father gets custody of his son. The law is indeed clear, at least to this extent: That ‘law’ refers only to legitimate children. … The Supreme Court last weighed in on the legal rights of unwed fathers in 1989 when it cut off all of the father’s rights to his child, including visitation.”[8]

In her essay, Coulter literally reversed the decision of the Court, falsely claiming it denied those custodial rights. Contrary to Coulter’s fiery opinion, the law says otherwise. The Supreme Court, in five cases, upheld the principle of paternity rights for putative fathers. Those cases were all cited in the Supreme Court case cited by Coulter.

In a rather remarkable display of truth twisting, Coulter took this Supreme Court case which affirms the custody rights of natural fathers and declared it the definitive denial of those rights![9]

The father in Coulter’s cited case was not denied parental rights due to illegitimacy but because his claim of fatherhood was filed after the filing deadline. That father had failed to assert his rights within two years of his daughter’s birth. Illegitimacy was never the issue. The Supreme Court has consistently confirmed custodial rights of natural fathers, both in principle and in practice. So, the case Coulter cited says the exact opposite of what Coulter claimed.

“Bald assertions about the very question under dispute,” Coulter once wrote, “is an odd method of argument,”[10] yet that is precisely what Coulter did (and continues to do). According to Coulter, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion; everyone is not entitled to his own facts.”[11] Apparently Coulter is not above making up her own “facts.”

Strangely (or not, for Ann), Coulter recently asserted, “Apparently that’s the way constitutional analysis goes these days. You determine, we’re all Ruth Bader Ginsburg now: Whatever you want the Constitution to say, that’s what it says, miraculously. Well, that has never been me!”[12]

Sorry, Ann, but you are the allegedly “conservative”[13] Ruth Bader Ginsburg!
