Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

by Ann Coulter

Why is the relative patriotism of the two parties the only issue that is out of bounds for rational discussion?In a stunning follow-up to her number one bestseller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to todays war on terrorism.

Liberals have a preternatural gift for always striking a position on the side of treason, says Coulter.

Everyone says liberals love America, too.

With the fate of the world in the balance, liberals should leave the defense of the nation to conservatives.Reexamining the sixty-year history of the Cold War and beyondincluding the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker ChambersAlger Hiss affair, Ronald Reagans challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down this wall, the Gulf War, and our present war on terrorismCoulter reveals how liberals have been horribly wrong in all their political analyses and policy prescriptions.

Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency, ended up winning the Cold War. And George W.

Bush, also an object of ridicule, has performed exceptionally in responding to Americas newest threats at home and abroad.Coulter, who in Slander exposed a liberal bias in todays media, also examines how history, especially in the latter half of the twentieth century, has been written by liberals and, therefore, distorted by their perspective.

With Slander, Ann Coulter became the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual of the year.

What People Think about "Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism"

Original review, Nov 5 2016 Donald Trump says he's going to "make America great again" and denounces his opponents as wanting to destroy the country, but his arguments are so vague, inconsistent and lacking in detail that I'm afraid I can't even understand them. Ann Coulter, who has been one of Trump's most vocal supporters during the current election, at least writes book-length defenses of the positions she's taking. The other, inclined to overlook minor details like the annexation of part of a sovereign country and a habit of having inconvenient journalists assassinated, has several times said that Putin is a strong and popular leader and it would be much better if we could get along with him. It certainly seems to me that, on Coulter's way of looking at things, Donald Trump should be the traitor and Hillary Clinton the patriotic heroine. ________________________ Update, Dec 17 2016 ________________________ Update, Jan 8 2017 From this recent article in the New York Times:The role of RT the Russian English-language news organization that American intelligence says is a Kremlin propaganda operation in the Kremlins effort to influence the election is covered in far more detail by the report than any other aspect of the Russian campaign. ________________________ Update, Jan 10 2017 An interesting passage from this recent article in TimeIn a couple weeks, Donald Trump will be the defender of the free world and democracy, Graham said, during a joint interview with John McCain on NBCs Meet the Press on Sunday. You should let everybody know in America, Republicans and Democrats, that youre going to make Russia pay a price for trying to interfere.What do you think the most likely punishment is going to be? Appointing two people to key cabinet positions whose main qualifications for the job are that they are personal friends of Vladimir Putin. ________________________ Update, Feb 15 2017 Michael Flynn resigned yesterday after serving 24 days as Trump's National Security Adviser; following Paul Manafort and Carter Page, that now makes three leading members of Trump's entourage who have resigned over issues involving close links to Russia. But let's think positive: at least we can be sure that there aren't any more people in Trump's administration hiding dark secrets here. ________________________ Update, Mar 3 2017 Did I say five times? ________________________ Update, Apr 20 2018 It seems like the Democratic National Committee are also having trouble seeing why Donald Trump and his staff aren't the traitors here. ________________________ Update, Jul 13 2018 On his way between Belgium, where he has been dismantling NATO, and Finland, where he will personally submit his latest progress report to Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump stops by in London and warns Theresa May that she needs to do a better job of following orders if she does not want to be replaced by Comrade Boris. ________________________ Update, Dec 5 2018 And now even one of Donald's most trusted advisers has publicly used the T-word. ________________________ Update, Dec 19 2018 Look, before we all get carried away, let's take a deep breath and review what actually happened. Maybe I'm being unfair, but I still think the whole thing is Ann Coulter's fault. ________________________ Update, Jan 25 2019 I read that Ukraine's ex-president Viktor Yanukovych has been found guilty of treason and sentenced in absentia to 14 years of prison. Now, I'm a wishy-washy liberal and like to believe the best of everyone, but if I were a tough-minded conservative like Ann Coulter I think I might start wondering about Paul Manafort, who did a lot of work for Mr Yanukovych. Is it possible that any more of Manafort's clients are traitors who take orders from Vladimir Putin?

It's a pity that so much education has been wasted on her and so many years of women struggling to be heard and taken seriously are tainted by loud mouthed, igorami like Coulter.

I am not a fan of Ann Coulter and almost dislike the far right conservatives almost as much as the far left liberals well maybe not almost but I can't stand listening to the filth of either side:. Most everyone I know whether they call themselves a Democrat, Republican- or say they are a independent: are moderate and have some: common sense. Neither of the far left or right seem to have an ounce of common sense and refuse to listen to reason. What I found also scary is Coulter comments that liberal authors are the ones who write the textbooks and our school children are going to be reading their version of history. Now again my Democrat friends have common sense and would never make such stupid statements, but then again will our great grandchildren read that Harry, John and Jimmy ended the cold war??? Most of the far lefties and far right are extremely intelligent but why God didn't give them any common sense or the ability to listen to both sides of the big picture and reason is beyond me!!
