Ann Coulter interview

Link to Ann Coulter interview at Frontline on PBS.

I agree with nearly everything she says.

The main theme of the interview is that she blasts Trump for hiring people who didn’t agree with the anti-immigration agenda.

She’s mad at Trump for humiliating Jeff Sessions who was the only guy on his cabinet who supported his anti-immigration agenda.

She says, “Trump is the most disloyal person I’ve ever seen. … He has absolutely no loyalty to anyone but himself.”

She says, “I don’t think I could debase myself enough to start claiming he’s playing 3D chess. No, he’s not playing 3D chess. He’s lazy, narcissistic.”

I was somewhat surprised that she’s not a fan of Stephen Miller. She believes that he has been blocking the hiring of other people who could get stuff done on immigration because he wants to be the number one immigration guy in the administration. She seems to know more about this than I do, so maybe she’s right.

She really hates Jared and Ivanka, and I feel that this is misplaced. Yeah, at heart they don’t agree with a lot of Trump’s agenda, but Trump chose to surround himself with people who don’t agree with his agenda, and it’s not because Ivanka was whispering stuff in his ear intentionally trying to ruin his administration. Don’t blame Trump’s character flaws on his daughter and son-in-law.

* * *

Also, I agree with her on this: “I don’t think any progress can be made on anything in America until the media is destroyed and replaced by something with integrity.”

I say that as long as the mainstream media is a mouthpiece for extreme-liberal propaganda, winning elections is just winning a few battles while losing the war. of course it’s better to win some battles than to lose all of them, and winning the battle for the Supreme Court is pretty important, but conservatives have no battle plan at all for destroying and replacing the mainstream media, which means that conservatism is doomed.

* * *

Here’s something where I disagree with Coulter. She says, “His immigration policy paper [on his campaign website] was magnificent. Did he write it? No, but he read it, I assume.”

I agree that it was a great paper, but I assume that he did NOT read the stuff that was posted on his website. In multiple debates, he appeared to not understand his own policy papers.

I wrote this in March 2016 after watching a debate:

We’ve suspected for a while that Trump doesn’t really know what’s in his position papers on his website, and he outsources them to TrueCon types who ignore what he says in his campaign speeches. It has finally been proven today. The diatribe in his immigration plan against H-1B visas is apparently not something he’s actually going to do if he becomes president.

It seems to me that Trump’s actual beef with immigration is that our laws are being violated. Trump believes in law and order.

But today we see that Trump actually buys into the standard big-corporation lies on immigration.

* There aren’t enough qualified Americans
* We lose “talented” people if they graduate college and then aren’t allowed to stay here and work
* We need foreigners to do jobs Americans won’t do

When asked about his hotels’ use of H-2B visas, he could have said “I’m a businessman, I take advantage of the laws to make as much money as possible. But when I’m president, we are going to reform the H-2B program to create more jobs for Americans.” Instead, he just agrees with the standard corporate position that these are jobs Americans won’t do.

  2. “He has absolutely no loyalty to anyone but himself”…blah blah blah.

    This is a feature not a bug. Everyone (who is not living under a rock) knew Trump cheated on all his spouses, Everyone knew he has stiffed his suppliers over his entire business career. Suddenly he is going to turn it all around and start being loyal to his supporters or friends. you kidding me?

    I find this people suddenly turning on Trump a little distasteful. We get it why his supporters went along with him over the last 4 years. But abandoning him at the slightest hint of trouble looks like there is no loyalty among his supporters too.

    I dislike him very much but God forbid if Bernie or Warren becomes the nominee, I will be voting for him come 2020.

      Why? Trump would turn on us in a heartbeat. Turnabout is fair play. Trump has no loyalty to anyone, why should I have loyalty to him?

      Trump has no chance of winning re-election, so there’s no reason to be loyal for the purpose of winning another four years.

      Really? Trump “stiffed his suppliers?” In the construction world…where things like a “mechanics lien” actually apply? Where losses on large orders are big enough to bring in legal action? Where there are a number of very big players that will simply stop doing business with you if you “stiff them?”

      Have we not learned by now to take such accusations against Trump with a grain of salt?

Instead of focusing on immigration, China, and ME, Trump time was wasted for three years. Now Ukraine BS to delay the next four. Globalist delay of Brexit and Trump agenda is obvious.

        Well that was, without a doubt, Trump’s biggest mistake in dealing with Congress. McConnell and Ryan didn’t want anything to do with Trump’s agenda. The ONLY thing they wanted was the tax cuts, so once Trump signed that bill, he lost all ability to get anything from Congress. Tax cuts should have been held hostage until Trump got what he wanted but since he didn’t, he really got nothing and as a result, it was a total waste of 2 years of GOP control of Congress.

    He will sell out his conservative base in a heartbeat. He’ll only support them in a second term if he’s under threat of removal. Otherwise, what’s the point? A second term Trump is one who will be far more ready to make deals. Lots of deals. The biggest deals. The best deals.

  6. The first time I heard anything about Trump running for office, was from an enthusiastic supporter the day before he announced. I rolled my eyes and laughed. The next day, as I listened to him rail against illegal immigration, drugs, crime, economy, etc; I was completely won over. I knew the msm and political establishment would throw everything they had at him. So I vowed then and there to stand by Trump as long as he stood by me. Yeah, he’s crude and obnoxious. But the only time he’s really disappointed me was when he withdrew and abandoned the whole region to Turkey, Russia, Iran, etc. I don’t think we should have been there fighting Saudi Arabia and Israel’s wars to start with. It cost us trillions of dollars, tens of thousands of dead and maimed and the respect of the entire the world. Regardless, for better or worse we were already there. And abandoning the whole region to our enemies was NOT in America’s interests. Anyone who can’t see how big of a bonehead move that was doesn’t understand anything.

    That alone would not make me turn on Trump. And I haven’t turned on Trump… yet. But it’s obvious that his only loyalty is to his own petty ego. I wanted a fighter because nothing less could have stood up to the onslaught that I knew would happen. But that’s all he does. And he’s not fighting for results or anything worthwhile. Not that he hasn’t kept a lot of his promises. He has. At least all the easy ones that could be done through executive order, etc. And they can all be undone just as easily by an executive order from the next president. Now, I don’t blame him for not passing legislation. He doesn’t own congress. But I’ve seen absolutely no evidence that he’s put any real effort into get something done. Or to even have a functioning executive branch. He treats it as his own personal plaything. He has squandered the opportunity and actually hurt our ability to get our agenda passed in the future. And he hasn’t even tried to change. The longer that goes on the more I realize that he’s not standing by me.

    What the political establishment and msm says means absolutely nothing to me. I don’t care what they say. I despise them. They can’t make me turn on Trump. The only person who can do that is Trump himself. And if he’s not going to roll up his sleeves and get to work (or at least delegate his authority to someone who will) then he needs to step aside for someone who will.

      • There’s a lot more to a “region” than people. Syria may not be important in itself but its location is. Syria neighbors major oil producers and pipelines for those producers run through Syria to the Mediterranean sea. Our withdrawal has allowed Turkey, Russia and Iran to threaten the pipelines supplying our European allies with oil as well as build naval bases on the major waterway used to get it there. This is particularly true for Russia since all of Europe’s oil comes from Russia, Middle East and Africa. So Russia has just gained more leverage over our European allies. Don’t think this won’t come back to bite us when we need their support. That’s not a “sunk cost”.

      • Yes, Europe’s dependence on Russian oil compromises them. But your “key to the front door” analogy doesn’t work. In fact, it’s backwards and could be better stated as… If Russia blocks the front door then Europe can always go out the back door by buying oil from the middle east and africa.

        Sure, Russia can mess with Europe’s economy through oil supply. But Russia’s economy is also dependent on selling that oil to Europe. So it will hurt Russia, too. But with the development of other countries to buy their oil it’s less true than it used to be. And if they (or China, Iran, etc) can sew up the middle east and Africa then our enemies really will have some leverage. You don’t wait until someone does that to worry about it. You head it off at the pass.

        I get that you’re an isolationist or something. And I suppose that works for weak countries because they don’t really have the clout to do anything else.

        Overthrowing Hussein was a scam. And pretending to oppose ISIS while using them to undermine Syria and Assad was a scam. But those scams changed the landscape. Before we went there the region was more or less stable. Hussein may have been an evil dictator but he was our evil dictator. Now, he’s gone and it’s the wild, wild west. Not only is it unstable but Turkey and Russia are falling all over themselves to occupy the vacuum we left behind.

        “Besides, the mutual dependencies in the area guarantee stability. If Russia and Europe are that dependent on each other, then surely hostilities won’t break out.”

        Russia and Europe were dependent on each other. As I’ve already explained, that could change.

        “Furthermore, the Muslims will resent the Russian presence as much as hours as bleed them out as easily as they did us.

        No. They’ll brutalize the region into submission. Or maybe they’ll install a dictator to do it for them. Which is what we should have done. Heck, that’s what we had with Hussein. We should have left well enough alone. But having overthrown and hanged him, the least we could have done is replace him with another friendly dictator before we left. Instead, we’ve abandoned the region so that our enemies can install their own friendly dictator.

        You were talking about “sunk costs”. But you can’t get over your own objections to being there in the first place. Or the scam that the neocons pulled with ISIS. Well, I don’t like it either.

      Their news network was a major innovator in placing Barbies in front of the camera and spewing nonsense but their work in the Trump era has been excellent. They still dominate in the cable news ratings not that it matters much because hardly anyone is watching cable in general.

      The media has little to no impact in real life the biggest contributor to social change is the legal system and judiciary. The whole concept of a so called “independent judiciary” is bogus. Since the dawn of time humans have had rulers.

  9. “She’s mad at Trump for humiliating Jeff Sessions who was the only guy on his cabinet who supported his anti-immigration agenda.”

    Jeff Sessions enabled the entire Mueller investigation that tied up the Trump administration for three years and potentially threatened impeachment. If Sessions wanted to be the immigration point man, then why did he not resign his role as Attorney General and, instead, lead Homeland Security?

    Reading the rest of what you wrote about Coulter, I am fully convinced she, Trump, Sessions and Miller are basically playing 3D chess with the public and the media. Not for nothing that she mentioned 3D chess, btw.

    This is a classic misdirection technique. Coulter is bombastic about Trump’s lack of immigration progress and his trashing of Sessions, but she conveniently (and purposefully) ignores a major win in the Trump DOJ: the massive purges and arrests of vast pedophile networks, up to, and including, a big Arizona Republican Never-Trumper for trafficking children, who is also connected to Jeff Flake, Mitt Romney and John McCain, not to mention the Katie Hill breaking story that appeared in the Daily Mail.

    This is how the swamp gets drained and this is how the media is ultimately destroyed. They are so busy providing coverage of Ann Coulter’s fake criticisms that they are not noticing, or don’t dare to cover, the blackmail and kompromat networks that Trump is destroying, co-opting and leveraging.

    He is playing the game correctly here.

      • What “pedophile networks” are you talking about?

        Someone revived the investigation of Jeffrey Epstein. It wasn’t Obama. And Epstein’s operation can be fairly characterized as a network.

      • “The names of some of the largest GOP critics of President Donald Trump are surfacing in the investigation of a politician indicted on charges of fraud, human smuggling, selling children, forgery, conspiracy and ripping off the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System. GOP critics of President Trump, including former US Sen. Jeff Flake, late Sen. John McCain, and Sen. Mitt Romney among others are linked to suspect Paul Petersen. Petersen also campaigned for and is friends with Arizona Gov. Goug Ducey and other politicians, according to records and sources.”

      • “What ‘pedophile networks’ are you talking about?”

        Besides the one with Jeffrey Epstein? Whatever happened with that investigation anyway? I haven’t heard much about it since he was killed. Hundreds (thousands?) of underage girls trafficked and raped by billionaires and politicians. Yet law enforcement and the media act like it never even happened. Why is that?

    • Sessions was a great attorney general but he was also a Bush loyalist.

      It was Reagan/Bush that first appointed him to high office in the 1980s.

      Attorney General was his dream job no way was he taking a downgrade.

      However the Russian collusion hoax wasn’t the hill he wanted to die on.

      We’re better off with Bulldog Barr he’s the same but more politically astute.

      • Sessions also had weird drug war hangups. He made a big point of going after state legal marijuana scenes when absolutely nobody gives a shit about that anymore. This sort of thing caught flack from people who otherwise wouldn’t have cared.

        Both Barr and Sessions are no good on civil liberties. They’re both of the drone attack + torture camp mentality. Zero issues with assassinating US citizens. Again, hearing about this stuff irritates people who otherwise wouldn’t care about immigration, or whatever.

  11. ” He’s lazy”

    He certainly wasn’t lazy during the campaign. He was travelling all over the place, holding huge rallies every day. Towards the end he was holding 2 a day. It amazed me that someone his age could do that.

      • Take away broadcast licenses, block all mergers, and break up media conglomerates. One of the first things Putin did as president was take down the fake news media and the oligarchs associated with them using national security pretexts to seize assets. Such massive and illegal coordination during the Russian collusion hoax to take down a sitting president is more than sufficient grounds which is why the media is terrified.

      • If you think that taking away broadcast licenses is a serious proposal, I’m not sure you have good suggestions to offer.

        October 27, 2019 at 8:12 PM

      • The president himself was threatening to take away broadcast licenses (this would only effect the major networks) but his cuck advisers talked him out of it. At the very least the major networks would be forced to provide more balanced coverage when facing the real prospect of the executive branch threatening them legally. If you won’t get tough and start using the power of the state you should stop whining then.

  13. About Steven Miller she says he wants to be the only one to have an anti-migrant agenda, creating a monopoly for himself in government. As an example, she says he blocked Kobach, father of e-verify, but she forgets to say Kobach jailed Kushner father, and Kushner and Miller are both ally and Jewish, so that may be the cause.

    McDonald would say that as a Jewish
    , Miller has an hidden agenda pretending to anti-migrant while sabotaging the chances of having this policy done conforming to his ethnic group interest of having diversity not to be spotted as Jewish by a uniform white goyim society. But Coulter says he is a real patriot so this hypothesis is discarded by her.

    She has some interesting hints but she is not a coherent person …. If Trump has plaid by her book as she wanted, he wouldn’t be president .

    • You’re somehow confusing Kris Kobach with Chris Christie.

      IHTG

      October 27, 2019 at 9:20 AM

    • Yeah, that is Chris Crispie Cream.

      It’s understandable why Kobach wasn’t brought on: Sessions wasn’t the boon to Trump that everyone made him out to be. How did Trump know Kobach wouldn’t be the same way…getting an important position and sitting on it…unless there was some secret plan being implemented out of sight?

      Kobach also ran for governor or some office in his state and lost the election…mostly because local GOP torpedoed him. IOW, Kobach was turning about to be politically ineffective, no matter how good his rhetoric was.

      Trump’s personnel decisions are about pushing against all margins, ideological, political and practical. He is also not a dictator. Coulter thinks Trump should just have judges arrested and have the military seize property to build the wall. I wouldn’t mind seeing that, but Trump does not have the power or the support to do that.

      In the end, I stick to my original story: what we are seeing is a civil war inside the deep state. Trump is backed by a faction of it against another faction. This is how the Mueller report was beaten back against the power of the media pushing rhetoric. This war within the deep state will have to be won first before anything else can be done.

  14. I started to get nervous after the election precisely when he didn’t hire Kobach. I don’t know if what Coulter says about Miller is true, but it’s feasible.

    Then he surrounded himself with the Swamp and Javanka.

    In Trump’s defense, Sessions deserved ridicule and firing for recusing himself.

    But overall, Trump has failed. We needed him to keep his promises, hire true-believers, who knew how to DO things.

    Coulter is CORRECT in her assessment of the man and his presidency. He was just interested in being President; not actually doing what he was elected for.

      • I agree in the sense that Trump is above average as a traditional GOP president. I am voting for him again.

        But in terms of the border and what he promised…well Coulter seems to think he’s doing a lot less than what was in his power. Especially if he were determined and hired people like Kobach to navigate the system. But she could be wrong, who knows.

      • The Left in power will find a way for “Punching Up vs. Punching Down” to trump “Constitutional Rights”. Protecting sex offenders now will not protect wrong thinkers in that future.
