Ann Coulter Has Hope For America Again

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has hope for America again now that Donald Trump is running as a Republican candidate for president. The author of Adios America introduced Mr. Trump at Tuesday evening’s Iowa campaign stop.

Since Donald Trump has announced that he’s running for president, I’ve felt like I’m dreaming. I can’t believe I turn on TV and prime time TV every night they’re talking about anchor babies. They’re talking about sanctuary cities. They’re talking about Mexican rapists.

Ms. Coulter has hope again for America now that Donald Trump is running for president.

I have not had this much hope for America since November 7, 2012. No particular reason. I was just rather depressed that day.

God hasn’t given up on America yet.

Coulter mocked Democrats for their use of phrasing.

Apparently liberals think ‘anchor baby’ isn’t pleasant sounding. They prefer words like ‘aborted baby.’ But I have an idea: How about… How about ‘anvil babies?’ Because that’s what anchor babies are around the necks of the American taxpayer.

Coulter took a jab at the Republican Party’s strategy of avoiding conflict.

The Republican Party’s typical position is to preemptively surrender whenever liberals start yelling, ‘Ooh, that’s mean, you can’t use that word.’ Oh, I did not realize The New York Times had made a finding that anchor baby is racist. Henceforth, I shall not use it.

Well, they found something new with Donald Trump. No, he said ‘I’ll use anchor baby.’ And now Americans are finding out about, not only the policy of anchor babies, but the policies of these speech Nazis.

And they are going to learn when it comes to Donald Trump, when it comes to Donald Trump maybe they better just keep their mouths shut next time.

Someone yelled from the crowd about the border wall Donald Trump wants to build.

I love the idea of the Great Wall of Trump. I want to have a two-drink minimum. Make it a big world-wide tourist attraction and every day, live drone shows whenever anyone tries to cross the border.

Does Donald Trump give you hope for America’s future? Share and comment your thoughts.

LISTEN: Radio Host Asks Ann Coulter How She Feels About Carly Fiorina. Coulter EXPLODES

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter publicly expressed her disdain for GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina Tuesday, going so far as to say the former Hewlett Packard CEO is the beneficiary of “affirmative action” from the Republican Party.

“At first, I admit I was suspicious because I hate this, ‘Oh, a woman can talk, oh, that’s great!’” Coulter said on The Mike Gallagher Show.

But I just hate this affirmative action among Republicans. Look Republicans, you’re very sweet people, I love that you’re trying to promote someone because, ‘whoa, it’s a woman,’ but women can talk, it’s really not breaking news, and then yesterday among the attacks I saw on the magnificent Donald Trump immigration plan was, you know, everybody wants to get rid of anchor babies.

What specifically drew Coulter’s ire was remarks Fiorina made about birthright citizenship. “It would take passing a constitutional amendment to get that changed,” the former Hewlett Packard executive told NBC News Monday. “It’s part of our 14th Amendment. So honestly, I think we should put all of our energies, all of our political will into finally getting the border secured and fixing the legal immigration.”

“The 14th Amendment, you’ll all remember, came after the Civil War; remember what the Civil War was about?” refuted Coulter. “That was freeing the slaves. It wasn’t about allowing illegal aliens to run across the border, drop a baby and say, ‘Ha ha, you missed me, I’m a citizen now.’”

Coulter’s favorite GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump, is a staunch supporter of ending the practice. “This remains the biggest magnet for illegal immigration,” Trump said in his immigration proposal.

Other Republican presidential candidates in favor of ending birthright citizenship are: retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Sen. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.  

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey told radio host Laura Ingraham earlier this month that “[Birthright citizenship] may have made sense at some point in our history, but right now, we need to re-look at all that.”

Donald Trump Releases His Immigration Reform Plan Everyone Has Been Waiting For

Donald Trump released his comprehensive 5-page immigration reform plan that lays out how he would have Mexico pay for the border wall.

Mr. Trump: “People realize the problem we have in this country with illegal immigration and it’s going to be solved, it’s going to be fixed.”

Mr. Trump told NBC’s Chuck Todd of Meet The Press that he would rescind President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and deport illegal immigrants.

Mr. Trump: We have to make a whole new set of standards.
Mr. Trump: And when people come in they have to come in…
Mr. Todd: So, you’re going to split up families
Mr. Trump: Chuck.
Mr. Todd: You’re going to deport children.
Mr. Trump: Chuck.
Mr. Trump: No, no. We’re going to keep the families together. We have to keep the families together.
Mr. Todd: But you’re gonna keep them together out
Mr. Trump: But, they have to go.
Mr. Todd: What if they have no place to go?
Mr. Trump: We will work with them. They have to go. Chuck. Either we have a country or we don’t have a country.

Mr. Trump’s Plan: Immigration Reform That Will Make America Great Again offers three guiding principles:

#1 A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border.
#2 A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.
#3 A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation. Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans.

Mr. Trump laid out his plan for making Mexico pay for the border wall.

Mr. Trump would increase fees on temporary visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats. Mr. Trump would increase fees on all border crossing cards. Mr. Trump would increase fees on all NAFTA worker visas from Mexico. And Mr. Trump would increase fees at ports of entry to the U.S. from Mexico.

Ann Coulter defended Mr. Trump’s plan to make Mexico pay for the border wall.

Ann Coulter: “But look, we send Mexico 14…14 billion in foreign aid every year. Of course they’ll pay for the wall.”

Coulter called Donald Trump’s Immigration Plan “The greatest political document since the Magna Carta”

Trump Just Announced The Game-Changing Plan Everyone’s Been Waiting For – People Are Going Crazy

As promised, Donald Trump released a comprehensive immigration reform plan over the weekend. In it, the presidential candidate lays out how he would have Mexico pay for a wall along the border. He also calls for an end to birthright citizenship for the children of those in the country illegally.

In discussing the topic of illegal immigration on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, Trump told Chuck Todd that he would rescind President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and send illegal immigrants back to their home countries.

“We’re going to keep the families together…but they have to go,” he said. 

Todd followed up, asking the candidate, “What if they have no place to go?”  

“We will work with them,” Trump said. “They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don’t have a country.”

Trump’s plan, entitled, Immigration Reform that Will Make America Great Again, offers three guiding principles from which the policies are derived:

  1. A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border.
  2. A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.
  3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation. Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans.

The document notes that the cost of illegal immigration to the nation has been staggering:

U.S. taxpayers have been asked to pick up hundreds of billions in healthcare costs, housing costs, education costs, welfare costs, etc. Indeed, the annual cost of free tax credits alone paid to illegal immigrants quadrupled to $4.2 billion in 2011. The effects on jobseekers have also been disastrous, and black Americans have been particularly harmed.

Trump laid out how he would make Mexico pay for the wall, which he has stated would be his policy on multiple occasions:

Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do, the United States will, among other things: impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages; increase fees on all temporary visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats (and if necessary cancel them); increase fees on all border crossing cards – of which we issue about 1 million to Mexican nationals each year (a major source of visa overstays); increase fees on all NAFTA worker visas from Mexico (another major source of overstays); and increase fees at ports of entry to the United States from Mexico [Tariffs and foreign aid cuts are also options].  We will not be taken advantage of anymore.

Other elements of Trump’s immigration reform policy include: tripling the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers from the current level of approximately 5,000; implementing a nationwide e-verify for employment; instituting the mandatory return of all criminal aliens; ending “catch-and-release” for illegals caught at the border; defunding sanctuary cities; enhancing penalties for overstaying a visa; having ICE cooperate with local gang task forces; and ending birthright citizenship.

The candidate’s plan notes that birthright citizenship remains the “largest magnet” for illegal immigration. “By a 2:1 margin, voters say it’s the wrong policy, including Harry Reid who said ‘no sane country’ would give automatic citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants,” according to Trump.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), chairman of a Senate subcommittee on immigration, heartily endorses Trump’s plan. “This is exactly the plan America needs,” Sessions said in a statement

“…this plan reestablishes the principle that American’s [sic] immigration laws should serve the interests of its own citizens,” Sessions said.  “For too long, ‘immigration reform’ plans in Washington have served the special interests at the expense of working Americans. By contrast, this plan puts the needs of working Americans foremost, and develops an effective strategy for improving their wages and job prospects.” 

“Crucially, this plan includes an emphasis on lifting struggling minority communities, including our immigrant communities, out of poverty, by preventing corporations from bringing in new workers from overseas to replace them and drive down wages,” the Alabama senator added

Political commentator Ann Coulter, who has been very outspoken on the topic, is even more glowing in her praise, tweeting on Sunday:

Watch: Here’s The Real Reason Trump Is Dominating Polls – And What Republicans Can Do About It

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter appeared on Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor this week to discuss Donald Trump’s continued popularity as a Republican presidential contender.

She concluded that his success has much to do with his blunt rhetoric surrounding an issue she explores in depth in her latest book, Adios, America.

Trump will remain popular, Coulter predicted, “as long as he keeps talking about immigration.”

She recalled that the topic was a driving force behind last year’s Republican midterm victories, lamenting the fact that too many of the 2016 primary candidates are unwilling to support a firm response to America’s immigration problem.

“As for conservatives coming to Washington and selling out the base,” she said, “well, Rand Paul did. He was totally for Marco Rubio’s amnesty.”

While it is natural for candidates to take on the frontrunner in an election cycle, Coulter offered some advice for those targeting Trump.

“If they want to undermine Trump,” she said, “take his issue. Please take it, Republicans.”

She described the current political climate as “the business interests and the rich against the voters,” noting citizens are making their disillusionment clear.

“The voters keep saying, ‘We don’t want any more immigration,’” she concluded. “That’s why Trump is so popular. So pick it up, Republicans.”

GOP strategist Bradley Blakeman agreed with Coulter to a point, noting that “Republicans should take up that cause,” but stopping short of considering Trump a viable candidate.

He described the brash billionaire as a “very, very lucky person to date,” but ultimately predicting that his hot streak “can’t last.”
