Art Historian Victoria Coates Tapped for Senior Role on Trump National Security Team

Art historian Victoria Coates

Hollywood culture and the product that Hollywood produces is overwhelmingly left, with a few lonely patches of Conservatives who keep their heads down rather than expose themselves to the politics of destruction. If you disagree with leftist newspeak then you are evil and deserve to lose your livelihood.

Hollywood might be left, but the art world actually puts Hollywood to shame in its unwavering and reflexive leftism. Check out the major art websites and you will discover an endless parade of anti-Trump art.

Art: I use the term advisedly. Most of the pieces do not rise above the level of the crudest propaganda. In the art capitals of the world, artists compete with each other in hating Trump and those who voted for him.

It goes without saying that the art world is a collection of overbred, overeducated elites who seem to be channeling the North Korean model of state controlled propaganda.

Victoria Coates is a distinguished art historian whose 2016 book David’s Sling: A History of Democracy in Ten Works of Art is one of the best most refreshing books of art history I have ever read. The author argues that democracy has a unique capacity to inspire some of the greatest artistic achievements of western civilization from the Parthenon to Picasso’s Guernica.

Victoria Coates is also a prominent Conservative who was senior advisor to Ted Cruz. President Trump has just appointed her to the National Security Council.

A senior adviser to Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) who played a critical role in crafting his national security agenda—including efforts to stop the Iran nuclear deal and designate the Muslim Brotherhood organization as a terrorist entity—has been tapped by the Trump National Security Council to serve as senior director for strategic assessments, a role that encompasses the fight against terrorist forces, the Washington Free Beaconcan exclusively reveal.

Victoria Coates, a top Cruz aide and his longtime confidante, has departed the senator’s office to serve as senior director for strategic assessments in the new White House NSC, a role that will see Coates managing long-term threats to the United States.

Coates worked for former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry before joining the Cruz office in 2013. She also is an art historian who recently published a book on the history of democracy.

Coates’ experience with Cruz, who was a leading critic of President Donald Trump during the 2016 primary, sets her apart from the rest of the newly installed NSC, which is comprised of retired Gen. Michael Flynn and many of his former military colleagues, according to those familiar with the appointment.

Multiple sources who spoke to the Free Beacon about the matter said the selection of Coates represents a strong effort by the Trump administration to counter Iran, reverse the contested nuclear deal, and place a central focus on countering the threat of Islamic terrorism.

Coates is a prominent critic of Barack Obama’s appeasement to Iran and her support for Israel is rock solid.

The political viewpoint Coates will bring to the National Security Council represent a break with the prior administration. She has voiced strong opposition to the nuclear deal with Iran, a key policy initiative of former U.S. President Barack Obama. She also has been fiercely critical of the Obama administration’s position on Israel, forcefully arguing against a two-state solution based on the country’s 1967 borders. During her tenure with the Cruz campaign, Coates reportedly made interns read Ronald Reagan advisor Jeane Kirkpatrick’s “Dictatorships And Double Standards,” a 1979 essay in which Kirkpatrick argues dealing with anti-communist authoritarian regimes is actually good for human rights on the whole, since it prevents the rise of communism.

    Some of the hysterical opposition to Trump, and especially to Flynn, seems to stem from fervent opposition to any public exposure of the Iran Deal.

    I wonder why ? Maybe she will help.
