Coulter Logic (she wants candidate who won’t pursue her agenda)

Ann Coulter displays her superior logic as no one else can. She wants a candidate to pursue her immigration agenda (pro-wall, anti-amnesty) and is dead set against the one candidate who has proven he would follow that agenda.

Coulter Logic

Instead, she worships[1] a charlatan whom she admits is a liar and fraud[2] – and “mental[3] to boot. One, in fact, whose policies would be opposed to her wishes.

Go figure!

Coulter says that immigration is all the matters,[4] that we need to build a wall and oppose amnesty. But she also claims that Donald Trump – who actually favors amnesty and a big door in his wall[5] – is the best candidate, indeed, the only candidate who can do what she wants done.

Moreover, Coulter adamantly opposes – and continually lies about – Ted Cruz,[6] who has been consistently opposed to amnesty and has actually attempted to build a wall.[7]

Coulter, who admits that Trump is a liar and fraud,[8], seems to believe that Trump will build a wall and stop immigration, when, in fact, Trump has consistently been inconsistent and flexible[9] on both of those issues (as he is on all issues). (Does Ann believe in fairy dust, too?)

Yet, Coulter continually[10] defames[11] the one candidate,[12] Ted Cruz,[13] who has a record of trying to do what Coulter wants done.[14]

It’s no wonder that Coulter has gone mental over a candidate she herself has called mental.

Why Would Coulter Do This?

First, Coulter is delusional,[15] holding a very warped self-image.[16] Back in the late 1990s,[17] one of her colleagues observed that she displays a “mass of contradictions.” Once regarded as a far-right conservative, Coulter has lately fervently supported RINO candidates, from Christie, to Romney,[18] and, now, Trump.[19] She loves wealthy, Northeastern elites.[20]

Second, Coulter’s priorities have radically changed throughout this century. Now, she eschews conservative and Christian principles and values for something more pragmatic. Now, she opposes constitutional conservatives and pro-lifers[21] in favor of a libertine liberal[22] whose nomination would give Democrats the White House,[23] and, perhaps even Congress.

Moreover, Coulter has placed self-interest ahead of her country and her God. Trump’s candidacy, conjoined with Coulter’s book tour, was a boon to her career. Speeches and book signing at Trump rallies certainly helped. The media, contrary to Coulter’s claims,[24] has lavished attention on her.

But, Coulter has so intertwined her own career, reputation, and credibility with a Trump victory that she can’t escape culpability for his many sins. What she should do is repudiate him, but her vanity[25] and impenitent spirit will not allow it.

If she had known then what she knows now, would Coulter have pursued a different course? We will never know. For now, she is stuck with her foolish and bullheaded choices. Will she repent and try to salvage what’s left of her reputation, or obstinately stick with her arrogant tomfoolery? (My guess: the latter.)

Already, Coulter has lost an incredible degree of credibility and, in many circles, is largely irrelevant.[26] Many people who once held her in esteem will never trust her again.[27] Coulter’s penchant for prevarication and propaganda[28] over facts and truth has alienated her from huge swaths of conservatives, Christians, and patriots.

Coulter’s future rests in how she tackles the moral and spiritual dilemma she currently faces. In the meantime, Coulter cannot be trusted. (And neither can Trump!)

Only Trump Can Lose!

In a farcical column (“It’s Only Trump”), Ann Coulter contends that the GOP’s only hope “lies with Trump and only Trump.” The exact opposite is true!

Donald Trump would be our George McGovern!

Trump Loser

Coulter presumes that people who voted for The Donald in the primaries and caucuses will vote for him in the election, just as she also presumes that Hillary and Bernie voters are locked in to their respective candidates.

If anything, we have seen a remarkable fluidity in voting patterns. On the GOP side, in many states, early voters went with Trump, late voters with Cruz. With an effectively two-man race, anti-Trump votes will be consolidated in the Cruz corner. Had the GOP field, from the beginning, been much smaller than it was, Cruz would likely have been the clear Republican front-runner.

Political campaigns and elections are dynamic, not static.

In the general election, we can expect the Left and the Media to come out with tons of yet-to-be-released opposition research against Trump while continuing to cover-up for Clinton (or Sanders). Trump is, in reality, the one GOP candidate who could lose to Clinton (or, even, Sanders). (Ironically, many of Trump’s positions parallel those of Sanders, vis-à-vis the role of government, the economy, and taxes).

Do the math! Trump has historic and insurmountable negatives, a vast and growing cadre of #NeverTrump Republican opposition, and ephemeral grassroots “support” that will vote Democrat in November.

Throughout her column, Coulter compared current GOP candidates with Romney (who lost!), instead of Reagan or another actually conservative standard-bearer. (Romney – not a conservative – lost, just as Trump – not a conservative – will lose.) Why pit another RINO against a Democrat and expect a different result?

Looking to Reagan as a model[1] (not based on specific issues but, rather, his character, vision, grasp of how the world and government work, and other perspectives), Cruz is the most Reaganesque.[2] Cruz has proven his credentials as a constitutionalist, federalist, anti-establishment warrior, liberty-lover, and moral Christian.

Even if Trump were to win, as Coulter contends is necessary for the salvation of the Republic,[3] we still lose.

Trump and Clinton share ideological beliefs, political persuasions, character flaws (hubris, lying, bullying, corruption, etc.), secular New York values, and a disdain for the Constitution. As president, neither one would govern as a constitutional conservative, but either one would employ their pen and phone to the service of their will, not the will of the People.

As I’ve said from the beginning, a Trump nomination and/or presidency would spell doom for Conservatism and for the Country![4]

May God have mercy on our souls!

Update: Rich Lowry put it nicely, “He’s running against the Republican party from within the Republican party.” In the end, he may well destroy the Party, Conservatism, and the Nation.

Update: David French frames the contrast between Cruz and Trump superbly:

“We have long since passed the twilight-zone stage of the race for the GOP nomination. In one corner is Ted Cruz, arguably one of the smartest men in Washington, a person with unquestioned anti-Establishment street cred, a man who helped block the infamous Gang of Eight’s misguided immigration reform, a constitutional scholar, and a person with intimate knowledge of the workings of every level of American government. In the other corner is a man so completely ignorant – so completely venal – that his best rhetorical tactic is to bury his countless gaffes in an avalanche of insults and lies.”

Compromise is Defeat

Americans are almost literally up in arms over the radical transformation of America into something she was never intended to be – and the GOP compromises with those spearheading that transformation!

The GOP leadership rails against Obama’s appeasement of terrorists, tyrants, and criminals, yet that very same leadership capitulate to the Left and the media (redundancy alert).

Compromise

At the very moment of victory in 2014, Senate Majority Leadership Mitch McConnell conceded defeat. McConnell pledged to forego any government shutdowns. That’s right: Conservatives won, so McConnell started throwing down our weapons.

The Iranian Nuclear Arms Treaty (in everything but name) should never have passed. The Senate should have insisted that this treaty go through the normal treaty process. Instead, succumbing to political expediency, RINOs in the Senate shirked their constitutional duties and enabled the worst deal in American history to give our enemies the upper hand.

Planned Parenthood should have been defunded. The American people were utterly disgusted (by vast majorities) with the barbaric atrocities taking place in Planned Parenthood facilities across the nation. Investigative videos are still be released to the public and are all available online. Boehner and McConnell failed to seize the moment – this unique moment in history – to cripple the industry which epitomizes the Holocaust of our times in our nation.

The recent two-year budget deal also conceded defeat to Obama and his left-wing agenda. Utter capitulation.

The Spirit is willing, but the Senate is weak. Far too many Republicans are willing to go along to get along.

Moreover, those self-same representatives of the People actively oppose those who are actually doing the work of the People. The Quislings in our midst treat the patriots – who are defending the Constitution and who are in alignment with the will of the People – as if they were the enemy.

Like Patrick Henry, Ted Cruz is unwelcome by those who have aligned themselves with the status quo. The Resistance is always hated by the Establishment.

Mitt Romney, the Republican standard-bearer in 2012, recently lamented the very existence of conservative talk radio and right-wing blogs because they make it harder to forge friendships with our adversaries to get things done in Washington.

Romney and his cohorts believe that “getting things done” means enacting laws and growing the government. Stopping bad laws is at least as important as enacting good laws. (Don’t we already have enough laws?)

Our Founding Fathers would be horrified to see the lack of vision and grit within the ranks of the so-called conservative leadership. Ronald Reagan had both vision and grit.

Reagan spoke in bold terms, clearly distinguishing himself from his opponents. He forthrightly stated that government was the problem. He clearly expressed his love of America and her people, extolled American exceptionalism, and championed what America could accomplish.

Reagan denounced and defeated the Evil Empire when none thought that possible. Reagan reignited the free market and restored the American military, often in opposition to those on his own team. He did so with a deep grasp of our nation’s history, Constitution, People, and destiny.

Moreover, Reagan routinely made his case to the People. He connected with them in a powerful and personal way. He made his ideas (which were distinctly American in nature) easy to understand and support. His courage and optimism won the day and it was Morning in America once again.

Not so with today’s GOP leadership. Few of our elected leaders have either the vision or the courage to do what the American people elected them to do (or what Reagan would choose to do). What would Ronald Reagan do?

Stand Up and Fight!
