The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra is once again facing scrutiny after berating a woman for suggesting that he stole content and passed it off as his own.
“Identity theft is not a joke, Jim,” Jessica Fletcher said on Twitter, posting side-by-side images of nearly identical Tweets from Saavedra and another user named Logan Hall.

“Identity theft is not a joke, Jim,” is a reference to the television series “The Office.” Fletcher was needling Saavedra over the apparent stolen content.
But Saavedra privately messaged Fletcher to express his malcontent at her suggestion. She posted a screenshot of the conversation in a second Tweet, captioned, “Being a conservative clearly doesn’t mean you respect women.”
In the exchange, Saavedra berates Fletcher, and demands she remove her Tweet:
Fletcher later accused Saavedra of threats.
“Yeah he sent me lots of colorful DMs,” she said. “Threatening my work. Like ok bud.”

It’s likely that Saavedra is touchy over the subject of content theft, given that he has been exposed for such behavior before. He has a history of content thievery, well-known in conservative circles.
Big League Politics reported:
Up next on the list of internet “news” frauds – people with large Twitter followings who aggregate news and “break” stories without crediting the outlets who originally reported the stories – is Ryan Saavedra of Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro’s multi-million dollar GOP establishment-funded blog.
“Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam refused to shake the hand of his black opponent E.W. Jackson during a 2013 debate for the lieutenant governor’s seat. Jackson tries to shake Northam’s hand and Northam wouldn’t even acknowledge his existence,” Saavedra Tweeted.
We broke that story seven hours before Saavedra Tweeted it without giving us credit. It was linked on DRUDGE. This is a habit of Saavedra’s. Nearly every original story that we write ends up on his Twitter feed, without referring back to Big League Politics.
This Tweet was only a few hours after Saavedra called Big League Politics demanding that we hand over a non-watermarked image of the Ralph Northam yearbook photo from the story that we also broke. Of course, we refused, knowing that Saavedra would simply steal our scoop. He hung up in a tizzy after vowing to find the photo himself. (Maybe try that before calling us next time, Ry-guy!)
One can only conclude that Saavedra has no real sources of his own. He simply recycles the original work of others onto his Twitter feed, slaps a “BREAKING” tag on the Tweet, and pretends it’s his own. This is not journalism – it is news aggregation. Exclusive stories by Saavedra, despite the millions of dollars behind the outlet he works for, are few and far between. The same goes for the rest of the Daily Wire crew – a bought-and-paid-for mouthpiece for weak establishment “conservatism.”
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro did not immediately return a comment request.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
