Is Ann Coulter now turning
on Ted Cruz?

Daily Caller, by Jamie Weinstein

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/21/2014 10:55:20 AM

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Comments:
One must remember that Ann Coulter is of the Republican Establishment. She worked for the United States Senate Judiciary Committee, Republican Senator Spencer Abraham, and dated a Liberal Democrat Andrew Stein who is now with business consulting firm Arapaho Partners, LLC.

Got Tea?

Ann is angling to be the RINO equivalent of Oprah.

I learned something about Ann Coulter a long time ago.

She is interested in nothing but money. She will say whatever to stay in the limelight and sell books. Sure, I believe she hates liberals, but first and foremost, it´s about money.

She has said totally idiotic things many times. I never got the idea that she is totally serious about anything--others may feel that is just her sense of humor--I no longer do.

Its all about being provocative and making the news--so that she sells more books.

Just like the gay marriage debate has nothing to do with human rights, feminism has nothing to do with helping women, and Planned Parenthood has nothing to do with planning to be a parent, Coulter has nothing to do with conservatism.

She has to do with selling books, period. And she laughs every day about that.

If the Tea Party is minimalized by the RINO´s again, the Representative Republic will be completely gone. It is not far from gone now. People continue to call it democratic, it was never meant to be democratic. Now it is moving fast toward communist, which many fools think is such a wonderful thing.
.
Google pictures of the cold war USSR, pay attention to the empty shelves and long lines. Get ready to bury the farmers who won´t grow what the state wants. Be prepared for gas rationing, food rationing, energy rationing, no work on our infrastructure it will continue to fall apart.
.
Your health care will not matter (already started), toilet paper that you can see the wood grain in, the government will control your life, or you will be killed, relocated, branded a terrorist (already done to Veterans).

PEOPLE WAKE UP, UNITE AGAINST THIS TAKE OVER OF OUR COUNTRY BY OBAMA AND HIS COMMUNIST TEAM OF TRAITORS.

So having a Republican Senate is now the Holy Grail, and nothing can be allowed to interfere? What happened when Republicans had the House, the Senate and the Presidency? I seem to remember things like No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, HIPAA and TARP. I´m sorry, but electing a majority of spineless, principle-free Republicans is not my idea of nirvana.

Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is literally the king of the Chamber of Commerce and the Karl Rovian branch of the party. He supports open borders because his donors, associates, former staffers-turned lobbyists, and consultants are some of the biggest and most obnoxious supporters of amnesty, particularly those staffers working for Zuckerberg’s scandalous group.

The Chamber has made it clear that they will reward those who support amnesty and punish those who oppose it. After investing hundreds of thousands into McConnell’s reelection, they are clearly confident he would bring amnesty legislation to the Senate floor were he to become Majority Leader next year.

Again, it is incontrovertibly clear that our only path to stopping amnesty during the final years of Obama’s presidency is to have a strong showing in this year’s primaries.If we fail to do so, by Coulter’s own account, the Republican Party will self-destruct.

Sadly, in an egregious example of disconnect with her own stated views, Coulter has been attacking those who are leading the fight for competitive primaries against amnesty supporters.

I seem to remember when President Bush signed a bill to build a fence along the Mexican border; Nance Pelosi simply said, we won´t fund it. And the House didn´t fund it. Hence, no fence. Fast forward to Obamacare...Ted Cruz wanted the House to not fund it and is vilified by the right for wanting to do the same thing Nancy did. Same thing on the budget. Ted was told to wait til the debt ceiling fight and he´ll get some satisfaction. Wrong. I don´t see any difference in our debt accumulation with Boehner in office than when Pelosi was in office. For the first time in almost 40 years of voting I have all but made up my mind not to vote if our presidential nominee is another John McCain, Mitt Romney type. We need Ted. Most of the rest are part of the problem, not the solution.

I believe Ann has a lot to say, and I don´t usually disagree with her, but she´s too "in your face" for my taste.

In order to convince others that your ideas are rational and workable, it´s all about marketing/selling to the uninformed (look at what this creature in the WH has accomplished !!!).

Ann comes across as a ditz, an intelligent ditz, to be sure, and with ideas, but nevertheless a smug ditz.

It´s all about MARKETING ! That´s LIFE !!!

Ann Coulter was a major Christie supporter and loves insulting small government Republicans. So, yeah, she´s part of the problem.

Thomas Sowell´s criticisms of Cruz are more disturbing, but not in a way that makes me think he´s right and Cruz is wrong. Someone needs to take a stand. If only one guy has the guts to do it, then he´s going to be the guy they´re talking about. I suppose Rand Paul is pushing himself and doesn´t care about the party as well. Does it ever occur to these people that the party is dying as a result of its complacency? As a result of its cravenness? Yes, it needs a libertarian jump start and to get its´ mojo by being the opposition party. Only then will it, and America, have a future.

From on high, it is decreed that it is now forbidden for anyone to criticize ANY "conservative" in the GOP but it is perfectly fine to attack so called "RINO´s"? Wow! Just wow! BTW, Ann Coulter did NOT attack voters who actually ARE Tea Party supporters, only the phony ones. Good grief!

I am of the belief that every talking head,from Lanny Davis/Juan Williams on the left to Ann Coulter on the right are on the payrolls of special interest lobbying groups.

I filter what they say through that prism. Which is why I don´t care what they say and can´t watch Hannity anymore.

Ann was never a Christie fan any more than she hates Cruz. She is a pundit. Her livelihood is dependent upon selling books, remaining relevant and being in demand on various shows. Don´t criticize because she isn´t your conservative guru anymore, she never was. Same with Rush (whom I adore), Hannity, Levin, all of them need to remain in the conversation. Falling for all of this is only playing into the hands of the left.

Of course she has; she has found her comfort zone with the elites of New York and Washington, DC. While she talks the conservative talk, she doesn´t insist on the conservative walk. Also, she is young enough not to know or remember how hard we older citizens worked to elect conservatives from Goldwater forward. Things have only gotten worse, the debt and deficit deeper and in my view, why keeping going back for more of the same. If instead of winning six senators, we only win three or four...it won´t change a thing until we have the presidency too. We then have two more years to win that prize. Of course, that is if the American people don´t chose socialism . We will then just suffer until the financial collapse of our country.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love that picture from the Bundy Ranch. You know the one that I’m talking about: I’m talking about all of them. I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power.

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

Presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Jeb Bush got in a slight scuffle over immigration yesterday. Bush called illegal immigration “an act of love” committed by people wanting to support their families, adding that most of them are here illegally because they can’t get in legally. This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were

Republicans are famously divided on immigration reform, but Democrats pretty much unanimously support it. There´s a reason for that. In stark, partisan political terms, continuing the high level of immigration of recent decades, and certainly increasing immigration as envisioned by many reformers, will result in more Democrats winning more elections in coming years

There is a culture of sleaze in Washington that´s worse than ever. Too-big, all-powerful government not only cripples the freedoms of the regular people who have to live under it, it also creates a whole shadow infrastructure dedicated to working it to the advantage of the elite and the connected. Three recent stories illustrate the point: Matt Continetti´s piece about the divorce of lobbyists Tony and Heather Podesta shows how connected insiders can make out like bandits in Obama´s Washington. The Podestas have offered their vast and wealthy clients little in the way of objective value. Rather, they´ve gotten rich just

The fact that this situation could have been pulled from the script of the 1974 movie Chinatown or any of the Godfather movies is well known and must be exposed, but not before immediate action is taken to assure the preservation of life and liberty.

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts. And that’s why,

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race. "They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents. And what´s also true is, if you look at the success rate and the track record of

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance
