A few days ago, the conservative rabble-rouser, Ann Coulter went on a morning television show in Britain and what she had to say might surprise you. She wasn’t there heralding President Trump’s tax cuts or any other typical conservative red meat. Within twenty-one seconds, she pivoted to complaining that President Trump had failed on his promise to end the wars in the Middle East.
You didn’t hear about this on mainstream media, did you? And even Good Morning Britain dutifully titled Coulter’s segment, “I’ve Been Dying to Be Hated in Europe Again,” rather than “Coulter calls out Trump for continuing hawkish Middle East policies.”
I mean seriously, isn’t this a ‘man bites dog’ moment?
This is just another example of how the MSM is dead—like mummy-level dead, dead.
One of the biggest (and unreported) stories of the 2016 election cycle was that candidate Trump defeated his Republican opponents by opposing the foreign policy establishment. He then proceeded to run and win against the most hawkish Democratic candidate imaginable, Hillary Clinton.
It’s interesting to note that Sec. Clinton lost Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan—states with a higher rate of casualties in Middle Eastern wars. Check this link out for a study on this relationship.
The study finds that “there is a significant and meaningful relationship between a community’s rate of military sacrifice and its support for Trump,” and the data suggest “that if three states key to Trump’s victory—Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin—had suffered even a modestly lower casualty rate, all three could have flipped from red to blue and sent Hillary Clinton to the White House.
It makes one wonder. Why isn’t President Trump fulfilling his promise to end these wars? Is he being held hostage by his generals?
