This column from the incomparable Ann Coulter also might be called an old-fashioned “fisking,” taking apart some very fake news engineered by CNN “reporter” Ana Cabrera.
Cabrera took a real quote from President Trump (it’s “a very scary time for young men in America” due to uncorroborated sexual assault allegations) and paraphrased it to make it racial (Trump saying “white men have a lot to fear right now”), then asked a black guest to comment on the fake news to blow it up even bigger.
Later, much later, on Twitter, she apologized for her “mistake” that wasn’t a mistake. Giving her a two-fer: doing the nasty on Trump, then apologizing as if she was contrite. Poor, honest Ana, she made a boo-boo.
“The network deliberately pushed a racism narrative,” writes Coulter, “calculated to incite racial hatred that could get someone killed…If this were an error, it would have been corrected before the first commercial break. It was not corrected because it’s not a mistake; it’s a political strategy.”
And it’s a perfect example of what President Trump calls very fake news.
No Obamacare repeal. Shoot, not even hearings featuring some of the multitude screwed out of their insurance and doctors by Obamacare. No tax reform. Not even tax reduction. A slain Labor nominee, thanks to Republicans cooperating with Democrats in attacks on his ex-wife.
Instead, as Ann Coulter puts it “Republicans in Congress refuse to do the people’s will. Their sole, driving obsession is to see Trump fail.” All they want is to be part of the establishment, the establishment Trump is threatening.
They are a significant part of the swamp that needs draining. Trump will get to them in his own good time. It will be death-by-a-thousand-Tweets. It couldn’t happen to a slimier bunch of stooges. The Stupid Party.

Now that the U.S. soccer team was beaten by Germany by a measly one point (despite still needing to lose to Belgium, which they probably will), we can all go back to waiting for football (the real football) season to begin.
As my favorite political columnist, Ann Coulter, says: In soccer, “everyone just runs up and down the field and, every once in a while, a ball accidentally goes in. That’s when we’re supposed to go wild. I’m already asleep.”
Scoring in real football—tackle football y’all—is never done by accident, not with 300-pounders trying to crush you before you get to the goal line.
Liberal Austin has banned stores from giving away plastic bags to hold purchases. Are we proud? We’re Portland South now.
All those folks (like Mrs. Charm) who felt so superior toting their green canvas bags—Ann Coulter delightfully refers to them as portable bacteria colonies—to and from the grocery are now diminished by the fact that most everyone carries them.
Well, most everyone. Not me. I prefer to pay 25 cents (so far) at the grocery for one of their recyclable brown bags (actually made of plastic, but I’m not telling). When I get home, I just stuff them in the kitchen trash and, next time, buy another one.
I am considering buying a washable cotton string bag, though five for $32 at Amazon does seem pricey. Maybe I’ll even get a (ha-ha) plastic one. Since all the liberals want to emulate Europe so bad (even unto government bankruptcy, apparently), why not go whole hog and become a German hausfrau with a string bag? Then Ann won’t be able to laugh at them risking infecting their children with salmonella or, gasp, e. coli.
Yes, but, of course, the Republican Party is the party of white people. So says the New Republic, or rather its latest Leftist iteration. And, as always, its author is history-challenged, as Ann Coulter so effective demonstrates:
“In the presidential campaign the year before , the Republican platform had expressly endorsed the Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education [desegregating public schools]. The Democratic platform did not.
“To the contrary, that year, 99 members of Congress signed the ‘Southern Manifesto’ denouncing the court’s ruling in Brown. Two were Republicans. Ninety-seven were Democrats.”
Even the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the watershed law that finally vanquished almost a hundred years of racial segregation, could not have passed without votes from the “party of white people.”
The Queen of Leftist Mockery also produces thoughtful stuff. Hence this comparison of Romney Vs Reagan and their relative conservatism:
“Some conservatives didn’t trust Romney because, as governor of a state between blue and North Korea, he had instituted a health insurance mandate, one feature of the hated Obamacare.
“As governor of a purple state, Reagan had signed the most liberal abortion law in the country and imposed the three largest state tax hikes in the nation’s history. Nevada Sen. Paul Laxalt’s nominating speech hailed Reagan’s governorship of California for producing ‘a veritable Great Society of aid for schools, minorities and the handicapped,’ as the Times put it. Reagan had also been an actual member of the godless, treason party.”
Romney, she concludes, lost for other reasons, including that he was running against an incumbent who could, therefore, afford to be seen for what he is: a rude, condescending, and perpetually-lying jerk.
"She’s like the ex-girlfriend they’re SO over, never want to see again, have already forgotten about — really, it’s O-ver — but they just can’t stop talking about her."
Or filing frivolous ethics complaints, after first issuing a press release about them. But of course.
UPDATE: Willie Brown’s take: Sarah Palin, political genius.
