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.

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!

Coulter Bashes Cruz – Again!

In a remarkable interview on the eve of Thanksgiving, Ann Coulter again bashed Ted Cruz, calling him a “midget” “compared to Trump!”

Extolling a Trump-Romney ticket, Coulter rejected Cruz for even the V.P. spot. The reason is astonishing!

CruzMidget

Coulter explained her logic, claiming that Trump is being self-sacrificing in running for President while Cruz and the remainder of the candidates have “got nothing else to do.” The other candidates have “nothing else to do?”

Coulter declared (emphasis added):

“I would put Reagan, Romney, Trump in the same category in this way and that is all three of them – unlike everyone else running for President – their lives are made worse by running for and becoming President. They have fantastic lives. They’re wealthy. They have beautiful families. The fact that they run for President at all suggests to me that these three genuinely love America and would like to save it.”

That’s right, Trump is a good candidate because he’s got a “fantastic” life. In what way is his life fantastic? Well, he’s “wealthy” and has a “beautiful family.” (Don’t the other candidates have beautiful families, too?)

Coulter claimed that Trump “genuinely love(s) America and would like to save it.” Does Coulter mean that Cruz hates America and wants to destroy it?

As for the self-sacrificing nature of Trump’s presidential aspirations, doesn’t he want to be President for the sake of being President?

Coulter further asserted (emphasis added), “These guys who are running because they’re got nothing else to do, they really are such midgets compared to Trump.”

Coulter, ever the elite, knows no better!

Coulter – An Elite’s Elite

The Ann Coulter I’ve known for the better part of two decades is an elite’s elite. Coulter is an elite. Coulter loves elites. In fact, Coulter depends upon them.

Elite

Born and bred an elite,[1] Coulter graduated from high school, in the most prosperous county in America, wanting the “crème to rise to the top.” Coulter, through networking with her elite friends and colleagues, rose to the top. Those very same friends and colleagues – elites one and all – salvaged her career multiple times during many of her most outrageous controversies.

A multi-millionaire herself (many times over), Coulter’s best friends are millionaires and billionaires.

Coulter’s Dream Ticket

This Thanksgiving Eve, Coulter appeared on the Sean Hannity Show. Her friend, Mark Simone (acting as guest host) was literally speechless.

For the umpteenth time, Coulter proffered her Dream Team presidential ticket: Trump[2]Romney![3] Coulter eagerly exclaimed, “I want Trump/Romney.[4] That is an unbeatable ticket.”[5]

Taken aback, Simone said that would never happen, then broached the enmity between the two candidates.

Coulter replied: “Look, they both hate one another right now. It would be like staging the Peace of Westphalia to bring them together. But I am up to the job.”

“I am up to the job.”

Silence from Simone.

Truly delusional,[6] Coulter really thinks that she can reshape reality into her utopian ideal. Coulter – and Coulter alone – can orchestrate events to save America. Has Coulter always been this crazy or is it simply a part of her emotional, intellectual, and spiritual devolution?

But that was not the first time Coulter made that delusional claim. She told her friend, Eric Metaxas, “Well, it will take a lot of careful negotiation on my part [to get a Trump-Romney ticket] since they both seem to hate one another, but it’s a dynamite combo platter.”[7]

Since her continual defamation of innocent Christians[8] can’t stop them from pursuing God’s will,[9] it would behoove Coulter to rethink her alleged power to change the hearts of these two powerful elites. (Would she also broker peace between Ahmadinejad and Netanyahu?)

Power Broker Extraordinaire

Ann Coulter has always seen herself as the ultimate power-broker, whether in local, state, or national elections.

In 2000, Coulter attempted to run a totally sham campaign for Congress[10] simply to oust a sitting Republican who had voted against impeachment.

Coulter coronated George W. Bush as President in 1999[11] – long before anyone knew what his platform would be. She selected Bush based solely on his huge war chest.

Coulter wanted Romney for President as early as 2008[12] (Coulter: “I supported Romney back in 2008”)[13] because she viewed him as a wealthy patrician who looked presidential and, since then, she has rationalized away his non-conservative credentials.

Now, Coulter wants Trump,[14] even though he has demonstrated for over two decades that he is not a conservative.

Coulter has no faith in conservatism and consistently chooses pragmatism over principle. Hence her proclivity to promote non-conservative candidates in the guise of winning elections. Coulter is a RINO-lover par excellence.[15]

After McCain’s debacle in 2008, Coulter told Rush Limbaugh and others privately, and Sean Hannity’s radio audience publicly, that she (Ann Coulter!) would not let that happen again. As a result, Coulter foisted Romney on conservatives in the 2012 election and she is trying to foist Trump on us now. Don’t let her!

Pride’s Proverbial Fall

“I am up to the job.”

An impossible job that no one asked Coulter to undertake.

Pride has always been Coulter’s downfall[16] and it is the source of most of the dysfunctional aspects of her life.

Pride is the Devil’s greatest weapon and man’s Achilles’ heel.

I had often wondered whether wicked people know they are wicked. I found the answer in Psalm 36:1-3 (NLT), which reads (emphasis added):

“Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all. In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are. Everything they say is crooked and deceitful. They refuse to act wisely or do good.”

We know that much of what Coulter says “is crooked and deceitful.”[17] Coulter truly cannot be trusted. Why? Because she believes her own lies. In her “blind conceit,” Coulter is blinded to the evil that she does.

Pray that God humble Ann, cleanse her heart, and renew a right spirit within her. Until then, never trust Ann Coulter.

Coulter’s Latest RINO Would Give Democrats Victory

Yet again, Ann Coulter supports a RINO, but this one isn’t even a Republican![1]

An ecstatic Coulter gushed, “[A third party candidacy] would be fantastic! Go, Trump, Go!”[2]

Ann Coulter’s latest RINO love is Donald Trump, who, if he runs a third party campaign, wouldn’t even be a Republican. (Right now, he is a faux Republican.)

Trump’s political self-identity is, at best, murky. That he would even consider a third party run – which would ensure a Democrat victory – proves he is not a conservative.

TrumpDefeat

So why would Coulter support Trump for a third party candidacy?

Coulter Loves RINOs

Coulter’s love of RINOs is no secret. She still yearns for Chris Christie and has loved Mitt Romney since 2006.[3] Coulter has fought against the Tea Party – and for RINOs – for years,[4] even ferociously supporting Mitch McConnell, who has seriously disappointed her.[5]

Consider her infatuation with Christie: “My flirtation with Christie was like running off with a biker. He was new and exciting – and made conservatives feel alive.” Even now, she says, “I still like [Christie], except he’s bad on amnesty. He’s smart. He’s articulate.”[6] Coulter argues, “I was [Christie’s] biggest fan because he’s funny and smart …”[7]

But, early in 2014, Coulter admitted, “But I don’t think Christie was that electable other than the fact that he probably would have been the most liberal candidate running in a primary.”[8] Yes, Coulter supported the most liberal GOP candidate.

Nothing has changed after all these years.

Coulter Loves Trump

Now, Coulter has been smitten in a big way by the Donald,[9] so much so that she has defamed American war heroes[10] and redefined racism[11] – all to defend Trump, and herself, from criticism.

So, what does Coulter like about Trump? His looks and his style! [She thought Romney was tall and handsome, too!]

As reported by the Daily Caller, Coulter thinks “He’s attractive. He’s tall. He’s hilariously funny.” (Is Coulter talking about herself?) (A few weeks earlier, Coulter exclaimed, “Donald Trump, I love him because he does talk a little like me, which is to say, blunt.”[12])

Coulter continued, “I think he could be not only a nominee who could win but a third party candidate who could win.” (Really? As a third party candidate splitting the conservative vote?)[13]

Coulter added, “The more I see Trump talk, the more it diminishes the other candidates.” (Coulter has already called the other GOP candidates “midgets.” How much smaller can they get?)

Coulter insisted, “I promise you that if the nominee is Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Rick Perry or really any of those midgets, our fate is sealed. … The Republican isn’t winning if it’s Marco or Jeb Bush. It’s absolute madness.” (Yet another promise Coulter can’t keep.)

Coulter’s own madness: “The polls show Donald Trump is way ahead.” (Since when does Coulter trust polls? And polls this early in the election cycle? Coulter has often said that the only poll that counts is the election.)

Trump is Like Coulter

Perhaps what Coulter really likes about Trump is that Trump is so much like Coulter (though more flamboyant and less erudite). They are both self-promoting narcissists with few filters on their speech.

Consider a National Review column promoted by Coulter on her website. It describes Trump this way:

“A brash showboat and celebrity, self-promoter and controversialist, silly and mocking, a caricature of a caricature, Donald Trump is no one’s idea of a serious presidential candidate. Which is exactly why the radical middle finds him refreshing. Not an iota of him is politically correct, he plays by no rules of comity or civility, he genuflects to no party or institution, he is unafraid of and antagonistic toward the media, and he challenges the conventional wisdom of both parties…”

Those character and personality attributes could equally apply to Coulter, which perhaps explains to a large extent his appeal to her. Coulter describes herself as a polemicist who seeks to be outrageous and offend people.[14] (Latching on to Trump’s coattails to garner greater book sales is surely another personal motivator for Coulter.)

(To be fair, Coulter does reflexively defend Republicans, unless doing so interferes with her agenda.)

Trump and Coulter are similar in character and temperament. Maggie Gallagher observes: “He is our id, he doesn’t play by the rules, he gives out Lindsey Graham’s personal cell-phone number, he beats the media over the head and calls his fellow Republicans ‘losers.’ He’s politically incorrect on steroids, and he’s not going to apologize for any of it, ever.”

(Don’t expect any apologies from Coulter, either.)

Like Coulter,[15] Trump thinks he knows better than everyone else. Jonah Goldberg observes:

“Of course Trump wouldn’t hesitate to attack John McCain’s war-hero status. Trump’s bottomless insecurity cannot countenance the idea that his critics have any legitimacy. Of course Trump won’t apologize – because his dog-and-pony show is predicated on the idea that he ‘tells it like it is’ and ‘fights.’ He’s the omniscient master of The Apprentice. He can’t behave like the Biggest Loser.”

Likewise, Coulter discounts her conservative critics as “phony,” “fake,” and “so-called” conservatives.

Trump = RINO (Without the R?)

How, exactly, is Trump not a conservative?

George Will succinctly summarized core aspects of Trump’s character and platform:

“They’ll find he’s not just uncouth; he is unprincipled. They’ll find out he was pro-choice, ‘very pro-choice ‘as he used to say. They’ll find he gave money to Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Reid, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) because he obviously wanted the Democratic congress. And they’re going to want to think about that. Other issues, the Kelo, the worst Supreme Court decision of this century, which vastly expanded the power of people like Donald Trump using government to take away private property. He supports that. See how people like that.”

Trump also favors gun control and socialized medicine and opposes entitlement reform. As noted by the American Enterprise Institute, “His hair has been more permanent than his political positions.”

While Trump’s anti-immigration rhetoric appeals to many voters who rightly feel ignored by the political class, his attitude toward Islamic jihad in America mirrors that of Coulter. Trump continues to denounce Pamela Geller’s courageous stand against Islamists in America, calling her an “obnoxious blowhard” and “nobody” – very Coulteresque language.

Like Coulter,[16] the Donald does not get it: We need to defend our right to free speech against Islamists.[17]

Real Clear Politics asked why Trump isn’t running as a Democrat. Carl Cannon wrote, “Let’s go further, however, and point out that this guy has never really been on the GOP team.” Cannon added,

“In a recent interview, Ari Fleischer, who was White House press secretary under George W. Bush, said it was clear that Trump was ‘no conservative.’ The real issue is more basic: there’s not much evidence he’s even a Republican.”

That Coulter-promoted National Review column reiterated what most informed people understand: “Trump is not a conservative, nor by any means a mainstream Republican.” Moreover, he reached a conclusion in direct opposition to Coulter’s views.

The closing paragraph warns, “What so worries the GOP about Donald Trump is that he, like Ross Perot, has the resources and ego to rend the two [factions of the GOP] apart. … So the demagogue rises. The party splits. And the Clintons win.”

Ego can be extremely destructive (and self-destructive).

Trump as Third Party Candidate?

Could Trump win as a third party candidate? Is Ann Coulter right? Time will tell. (One thing we do know is that Coulter’s track record at political prognostication is mediocre, at best.)

A recent Quinnipiac poll reveals, “Perhaps the biggest loser, however, is Donald Trump, who has negative favorability ratings of almost 2-1 in each state.” It is pretty hard to win an election if people don’t like you.

While defending the viability of a Trump candidacy for the GOP, Larry O’Connor predicted, “Third party is death for the country.”[18] History agrees. Theodore Roosevelt’s third-party run gave us Woodrow Wilson, an inspiration for progressives throughout the 20th century. Ross Perot – another flamboyant billionaire – derailed George H.W. Bush’s re-election efforts, leading to a Clinton victory.

Let us avoid a repeat of 1992.
