Ann Coulter whines that Trump ‘unfollowed me on Twitter’ as she demands he ‘break ground today’ on border wall

Published

Far-right gadfly Ann Coulter complained about President Donald Trump unfollowing her on Twitter as she issued her latest demands in a long-winded rant posted on her website on Wednesday.

On December 19, Coulter posted a column slamming Trump as “gutless” for not having built his border wall. Trump unfollowed Coulter on Twitter, but essentially caved to her demands and pulled out of a deal to keep the government open.

Thirty-three days into Trump’s shutdown, Coulter posted a new column also slamming Trump.

“We are now past the midway point of Trump’s first term, maybe his only term,” she noted. “If Trump couldn’t come up with a legislative fix when he controlled both houses of Congress, he’s sure not going to now that he’s lost the House. ”

“We are headed for another failed Republican presidency,” she predicted.

“By now, my erstwhile critics are getting the point. But I’m not sure the president is — a few weeks ago, he unfollowed me on Twitter,” Coulter wrote. “Trump seems to be mystified about what he needs to do to maintain the support of his most devoted backers.”

Coulter went even further, saying Trump was already losing his base as his shutdown drags on with neither Mexico nor Congress funding a concrete fence or steel slat fence.

“Here’s what you haven’t done, Mr. President: You haven’t broken ground. You want your supporters back? BREAK GROUND TODAY,” she argued.

The column included the phrase “break ground today” — in all caps — a dozen times.

“What you need to do today — not after the State of the Union address, not after the next GOP retreat, not after another meeting with the Democrats — is to start rolling construction trucks to the southern border,” Coulter ordered. “Emergency powers or no emergency powers, on tomorrow night’s news we want to see helicopters circling the trucks headed to the border.”

2020 Election

Virginia was the bellwether of 2017’s big blue wave — but could it happen again?

Published

on

In November 2017, powered by a surge of grassroots activism one year after Donald Trump’s election, Democrats wiped out a Republican supermajority in the Virginia House of Delegates, and came within one disputed ballot and a random drawing of sharing power in a 50-50 chamber — an early harbinger of the 2018 blue wave. Now they’re back to finish the job, aiming to recapture control of both legislative chambers for the first time in 26 years and set the tone for the 2020 election.

Swing Left, a key player in flipping the House of Representatives last year, has targeted 15 races in the House of Delegates and five in the State Senate. Their main focus is people power, but they’ve also raised more than $550,000 in grassroots donations as of Sept. 11. Just two seats are needed to flip each chamber, and a court-ordered redistricting has made flipping the House much more doable.

‘Did Obama know?’ Rudy Giuliani flings wild new accusations against Biden in overnight tweet rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani hurled accusations of Ukraine corruption at Joe Biden and his son in a series of middle-of-the-night tweets.

The president admitted Sunday to speaking to Ukraine's president about an investigation of Hunter Biden's business dealings with a natural gas company in the country, after a series of reports revealed his efforts to pressure that government to come up with dirt on the former vice president.

Early Monday morning, Giuliani accused Kiev of laundering $3 million to Hunter Biden and suggested the Obama administration was aware but did nothing, although the former New York City mayor offered no supporting evidence of those allegations.

Chronically underpaid EMTs are being assaulted at record rates

Published

on

If Upton Sinclair were to write the modern equivalent to “The Jungle,” he might make the setting the metaphorical meat grinder of today’s emergency medical services industry.

Across the nation, emergency medical service professionals, the front-line workforce upon which so much of a patient outcome rests, are grossly underpaid for brutal work schedules that put them at risk of both serious physical injury and burnout.

The cherry on the top of this abuse sundae is that they are 14 times more likely to be violently assaulted on the job than a firefighter.
