The Daily Caller, a conservative publication based in Washington, D.C., smeared bestselling world-renowned writer Milo Yiannopoulos as “white supremacist-type people” in a public bid to deflect left-wing media criticism from itself.
Tucker Carlson, who founded the site, is no longer affiliated with the Caller in any way, which is becoming abundantly clear. The globalist Charles Koch Foundation gave the Daily Caller News Foundation — a nonprofit that produces content for the ad-supported main site — $960,000 in the year 2017, according to a report. The News Foundation recently ran a strategic article headlined “Charles Koch And Allies Lay Out Plan For 2019 Spending.”
The Caller is now actually partnered with Facebook to “fact check” supposedly false stories on Facebook for the Zuckerberg giant’s censorship efforts. That puts the Caller in a position to flag stories from competitor news sites to throttle down those sites’ reach, which would bolster the Caller‘s own market share, which is already bolstered by its reputation and social media properties built up from years of success under former editor Carlson. But of course, Carlson is no longer there.
When a left-wing Guardian writer criticized the Caller for supposedly running white supremacist content under Carlson, the Daily Caller groveled and begged for her acceptance.
The company’s official Twitter account tweeted a statement from the site’s publisher and co-founder Neil Patel, who served as chief policy adviser to former Vice President Dick Cheney. In the statement, Patel referred to a “junior editor” who tried to publish columns by Milo Yiannopoulos, a populist nationalist Trump-supporting commentator who worked with me at Breitbart.
@DailyCaller Co-Founder/Publisher Neil Patel Statement: We have never knowingly employed any white supremacist type people at our site. The tiny number of people in America with views like that are crazy, evil or both. Of course we don’t associate with them.

When a junior editor commissioned Milo Yiannopoulos as an unpaid opinion contributor without permission he was fired for it. That’s how strongly we feel about this. Anyone alleging otherwise is cynically trying to smear us to fit their own political agenda.

The “junior editor” in question was actually the site’s opinion editor Rob Mariani, another populist nationalist who was fired by the Caller’s relatively new editor-in-chief Geoff Ingersoll.
What exactly does “white supremacist-type people” mean?
Milo, in fact, is a connoisseur of miscegenation and married a black man in 2017, as reported by The Root.
The Caller missed out by rejecting Milo, who is vastly funnier than the comedy content currently on the Caller‘s website, including “Ben Shapirbro,” their tribute to anti-Trump neocon pundit Ben Shapiro.

Caller editor-in-chief Geoff Ingersoll is best and exclusively known for launching an ill-advised Twitter tirade against populist nationalist writer Cassandra Fairbanks, an original Big League Politics reporter whom Ingersoll accused of being a Russian stooge — a common neocon talking point.
“Still better than eating Putin’s cock bacon for breakfast, you hapless harlot,” Ingersoll said to Fairbanks in the vicious rant. “By the way, maybe cut down. You’re blowing up.”
Fairbanks and her fans thoroughly smacked down Ingersoll, who deleted his sexist tweets in shame, though he was unrepentant about the attack on Fairbanks when questioned about it and has returned to tweeting things that usually receive very few if any retweets.
Too bad Tucker Carlson spent so many years building up the Daily Caller, only for it to be taken over by Koch people who despise the generation of populist nationalist writers who followed Tucker’s lead.
We look forward to the Daily Caller now helping Zuckerberg to police our content!
FULL DISCLOSURE: I worked for Tucker Carlson as a Daily Caller reporter from 2012 to 2015, and he was a great editor.
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.
