My Take on the GOP Candidates: NEWT GINGRICH

Written on Thursday, December 22, 2011 by

Sean Hannity Freedom Concert

“If you look at my father and you just knew him as governor — raised taxes, signed an abortion bill, no-fault divorce, and a few other things — today, the argument against him would come from the right, not from the left.  He would have trouble getting his own nomination, but yet he ended up being the greatest president in our lifetimes.  We need to look at the whole package, the whole picture, everybody, and stop nit-picking ourselves to death.”  Michael Reagan

Is Michael Reagan right?  When looking at the pros and cons of the GOP candidates are we defeating our own party by nitpicking our candidates to death?  And also, do we have a contender who can beat Barack Obama in 2012?

So far anyone who’s gotten even a little close to Romney’s lead has been torn to shreds by the left and the right.  So today I’m going to focus on one candidate who is still hanging in there near the top:  Newt Gingrich.

I got to briefly interview the former Speaker at a Pasadena Tea Party event.  I was impressed that he took the time to talk to me and looked me directly in the eye when he spoke.  He didn’t mince his words with me and he answered my questions brilliantly without even a pause to think.

Of course, that alone isn’t reason for me to back him (or anyone) as President.  At this point, I’m personally still exploring who I do and don’t like and trying to fight through the media block that surrounds each of our GOP candidates.

Following is some of the research I’ve done in trying to find out who Newt Gingrich really is (at least as much as you can find out via articles and videos).  I wanted to push through some of the rhetoric that’s being said about Gingrich—from the left and the right as well as his responses to some of those glaring red flags that surround him.

NEWT GINGRICH:  Former Speaker of the House under Clinton 95-99 (House Minority Whip 89-95) 

NEWT’S PLANS:

ImmigrationBelieves in strong immigration reform

Jobs and the EconomyNewt has a pro-growth strategy similar to the proven policies used when he was Speaker to balance the budget, pay down the debt, and create jobs.

An American Energy Plan: Newt has an American Energy Plan that would maximize energy production from all sources–oil, natural gas, wind, biofuels, nuclear, clean coal, & would encourage clean energy innovation without discouraging overall energy production.

HealthcareObamacare creates layers of new taxes, regulations, and bureaucracies that will ultimately make our problems worse, not better. Newt proposes a “Patient Power” plan that will save lives and save money.

A 21st Century Learning System: Improve education especially in math & science & move from a bureaucrat-dominated status quo to an innovative system that emphasizes accountability, transparency, and parental choice.

Protecting Life and Religious LibertySecular radicals are trying to remove “our Creator” – the source of our rights – from public life. Newt has an aggressive strategy to defend life and religious liberty in America.

Day One Plan: Newt has pledged to issue a series of Executive Orders to create jobs and help undo the damage of the Obama administration on the first day of his administration.

PROS: 

Vast experience in all aspects of government

Strong, solid plans for job/economy reform

Proven leadership abilities

GREAT record:  Newt Gingrich is the architect of the Contract with America that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in forty years.

Under Newt’s leadership:

1. Congress passed the first balanced budget in a generation, leading to the repayment of over $400 billion in debt.

2. Congress cut taxes for the first time in sixteen years and reformed welfare, leading to over sixty percent of welfare recipients either getting a job or going to school.

3. Congress restored & strengthened defense funding & intelligence capabilities, an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission.

4. Served on the Defense Policy Board under President George W. Bush.

5. Longest-serving teacher of the Joint War Fighting course for Major Generals at Air University and taught officers from all five services

6. In 1999, appointed to the United States Commission on National Security/21st Century, for national security challenges as far out as 2025.

7. Helped save Medicare from bankruptcy, prompted FDA reform to help the seriously ill and initiated a new focus on research, prevention, and wellness.

IMPECIBLE debating/communicating abilities.  Can you IMAGINE a debate between Obama and Gingrich?  I say go ahead and give Obama his teleprompter, earbuds with someone telling him what to say or whatever advantage he chooses—Gingrich will MOP THE FLOOR with him!  (The “con” side of this equation is that if this were to happen, Hillary will probably be waiting in the wings to win 2012…)

CONS: 

THREE MARRIAGES:

  • In 1962, he married Jackie Battley, his former high school geometry teacher; he was 19, she was 26.  (Two daughters:   Kathy Gingrich Lubbers & Jackie Gingrich Cushman)
  • Gingrich left Battley after having an affair with Marianne Ginther. Acc. to Battley in 1980 Gingrich & their children visited her in the hospital recovering from surgery; Gingrich wanted to discuss the terms of their divorce.  (NOTE:  Newt disputes this & in 2011 daughter Jackie said it was her mother who requested the divorce prior to the hospital stay.)
  • Six months after the divorce from Battley was final, Gingrich wed Marianne Ginther in 1981.  In mid 90’s cheated on Ginther w/House of Rep staffer Callista Bisek, 23 years his junior.
  • In 2000, Gingrich married Bisek shortly after his divorce from second wife Ginther.

NEWT’S RESPONSE to David Brody, Christian Broadcasting Network:  “There’s no question at times in my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate.”

ETHICS VIOLATIONS:  Gingrich is only Speaker to have been disciplined for ethics violations; 84 ethics charges were filed against him; 83 were dropped. The remaining charge concerned a 20-hour college course Gingrich taught through a tax-deductible foundation. In ‘97 the House reprimanded Gingrich w/a $300,000 “cost assessment” to recoup money spent on the investigation. In ‘99, the IRS cleared the organizations connected with the courses.

As Speaker, GOP lost five seats in the House ‘98 midterm elections, worst performance in 64 years for a party that didn’t hold the presidency. Facing a rebellion in the Republican caucus, in 98 he stepped down as Speaker & left the House.

2006 “GREEN” COMMERCIAL WITH NANCY PELOSI:

NEWT’S RESPONSE, July 2011 USA Today: “Look, I was, I was trying to make a point that we shouldn’t be afraid to debate the Left, even on the environment, that was obviously misconstrued, and that’s one of the things I probably wouldn’t do again.”

AMNESTY?  Strong stance on immigration reform & protecting borders, but he’s against deporting 11 million people who have lived & worked in the US for 20 years or more.

NEWT’S RESPONSE, Washington Post:  “We will not deport a population as large as the state of Ohio’s, and any candidate who says otherwise is either ignorant or a hypocrite…we would need to know about the holding pens, the roundup procedures developed for law enforcement and how we would deal with families that have both legal and illegal members.”

FANNIE MAE/FREDDIE MAC MONEY:  His consulting firm, Gingrich Group, collected fees of approx. $1.6 million when Gingrich was NOT in office.
NEWT’S RESPONSE, Greta Van Susteren interview on Fox News:  “I never lobbied for Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae while I was in public office.  [Gingrich Group] was approached to offer strategic advice…It was only from Freddie Mac. We never got anything from Fannie Mae. It was over a number of years.”
VAN SUSTEREN
asked difference between Gingrich Group receiving money & his criticism of Obama admin for doing same.  He said:  “The difference is that under the leadership of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd in the Congress and of the president, those institutions have gotten $156 billion of taxpayers’ money.  I was a private citizen. What I didn’t do and would not do is I didn’t go and lobby the Congress…[or the] executive branch. I didn’t try to represent any position I didn’t believe in beforehand.  Barney Frank…thinks that what he does as a congressman in charge of writing a bill is the same as what a private citizen does.”

My overview:  Even Reagan would be called a RINO in 2011 for some of his stances; no one’s perfect but we certainly need someone with Reagan’s convictions regarding foreign threat in the White House.

I personally believe we should start focusing on the House and Senate races in 2012 because no matter who ends up being president, we’ve got to make sure we have the majority in Washington because we’ve all seen what happens when we don’t.

All in all, I’m backing whoever runs against Barack Obama—whether it’s Gingrich or Romney or a paper clip.

    That is a record of leadership and accomplishments the other candidates can’t come close to.

      Amen! I hope that American voters will see past the “personal issues” That has nothing to do with the man who can unseat Obama and turn our nation from destruction by the socilist pretender.

    • PR

      You know what really ticks me off? Here are all these liberal bastages castigating Newt when they are making millions of dollars off of insider trading! Pelosi..Reid..Kerry..and yes some republicans. They are throwing stones at Newt in order to take the heat off of themselves. Let me tell you something…didnt Bernie Madoff get jail time? How come these scum of the earth arent? They wrote the law that allows them to do it. We NEED to completely GUT government and start over..and go completely by the constitution. Paul is to flaky..Bachmann is close to him. I like Santorum if he good get higher numbers it would be great. Romney is a douchebag RINO..Perry is a waffler so that leaves Newtie…he may be a bit radical but i think that is something working in his favor at the present..i think we need something radical besides obama’s radical agenda!! 180 degrees the other way. Term limits..ONE TERM ONLY! If this bum and his crony democRATS steal this election we just as well fold our tents..its over. The NWO will have arrived:(

      …Newt Gingrich’s surfing in Alvin Toffler’s Third Wave and his application of the same as the launching pad of 21st century Republicanism should have been the wake-up call to stack the sandbags, vacate the beachheads, and run for the hills.

      The Grinch Who Stole Conservatism
      How would it be possible to support Gingrich knowing this?
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRdqGKA782A&feature=youtu.be
      You see, if you and I are truly serious about defeating President Obama in 2012 and turning our country around, nominating Newt Gingrich is the absolute LAST thing the Republican Party should do.
      Newt Gingrich’s record as the consummate Washington, D.C. insider is crystal clear.
      For his support of the individual mandate central to “ObamaCare” and other Big Government schemes, Newt raked in nearly $40 million from health care giants.
      For his efforts to stop conservative legislators from working to end government involvement in housing, Newt got $1.6 million from Freddie Mac.
      And Newt shamelessly referred to feathering his nest with taxpayer money as “the standard Washington fee.”
      And this is all while I was doing everything I could to warn my fellow Members of Congress about just how much damage the housing bubble would cause.
      Sadly, Newt was the one Congress listened to, and America paid a steep price.
      The truth is, selling access and padding your own personal bank accounts at the expense of your country is hardly conservative.
      Neither is supporting $700 BILLION TARP bailouts.
      Neither is cutting TV ads with Nancy Pelosi or cosponsoring over 400 bills with her.
      Neither is consistently supporting “global warming” legislation and pushing the environmental alarmists’ agenda.
      Neither is voting with Ted Kennedy to create the Department of Education.
      Neither is campaigning across the country with Al Sharpton and Obama’s Education Secretary for even more Big Government federal “solutions” for our education system.
      Neither is joining with Big Government liberals to slam Paul Ryan’s attempt to get our federal budget under control as “right wing social engineering.”
      Of course, Newt loves to make sure we all know he knows a little about history
      But he constantly demands you and I just ignore his own!

    • Antone

      I agree with Newt that candidates should run honest and respectful campaigns; and the only one who is helped by the kind of ads being run by Paul and Romney supporters (about Newt) is Obama. Romney says that it’s not him, but a PAC doing the negative campaigning–but he hasn’t condemned the ads for their false and obvious lies.

      For me, this alone is enough to make me question the integrity and worthiness to serve as president of these candidates.

      I will vote for whoever wins the Republican primary (as I did in 2008). But in that race, McCain ran a dishonest surprise ad a few days before the major election day that sank Romney. That was one of the main reasons I could not support McCain. I voted for Sarah Palin–not McCain.

      This election cycle, bogus scandals and dishonest ads are being spread about virtually every candidate that gets close to Romney. And the Republican candidates are aiding in their own destruction–and this is one of the few thing that gives Obama ANY chance of winning.

      I just can’t support people who engage is such despicable (and DISHONEST) acts of political sabotage, for there are only two possibilites: 1) they are too stupid to know the facts, or 2) they are too dishonest to stick to them.

      Newt is the only candidate that has maintained an honest and upbeat campaign that focuses primarily on his own ideas and how they can undo the great harm that Obama and the other liberals have done to our country.

    • judith cochran

      Gingrich is the best person we can elect to help us get the country back to prosperity

  • Mark in LA

    My take on liars:

    Gingrich helped pay down the debt. If you go by the official US Treasury figures, the debt never went down.

    http://www.treasurydirect.gov/govt/reports/pd/histdebt/histdebt_histo4.htm

    Reagan was the greatest President in our lifetime:

    Only if you think a fraud ridden amnesty letting in millions of poorly educated third worlders was great. Only if you think wasting billions on scrapped weapons programs was great. Only if you think taking us from the greatest creditor nation to its greatest debtor is great. Only if you are happy with the neocons pushing us to needless war after war on behalf of Israel. Only if you think NAFTA was great. Only if you think guest worker programs are great. Only if you likes bailing out the thieves behind the S&L fiasco. Yeah he was “great”.
    Only if you like the expansion of affirmative action “disadvantaged status” to East Asian and Hassidic Jews.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      Did you help elect Maxine Waters?Looks like she would be your favorite.

  • Dagny

    Sure, just ignore that he endorsed over 400 bills with Nancy Pelosi, that he will pass some form of amnesty for illegals, that he is a globalist, that he will put forth some form of gun restrictions like he did when speaker, that he will expand government, get us into even more debt because he likes to spend, will probably start WWIII because he is a nasty arrogant dictator. Someone that finds more in common with the left than the right. He will probably re-introduce the Fairness Doctrine to put a sock on free speech. He is dangerous and he is not a conservative. He will give the presidency even more powers. So Michael Reagan is an obvious nut job for going out on the limb for Newt. Americans need to wake up. These hypocrits are electing our president for us. Vote constitutionally because nothing else will safe our country. Vote Ron Paul 2012 because a vote for anyone else will be a vote against the Constitution. Ron Paul or another socialist. You decide.

      How Can Newt Be A Conservative? For generations, conservatives have defined themselves primarily as being opposed to FDR and the New Deal. This has been as much a conventional part of the American Right as support for low taxes. Still, Newt Gingrich has long heralded Franklin D. Roosevelt as the “greatest president of the 20th century.” Writes Quin Hillyer at The American Spectator: Not just an effective political leader, but THE greatest president of the 20th Century. So says (and says and says and says again) Newton Leroy Gingrich about the father of the confiscatory income tax, the author of multiple unconstitutional infringements of our liberties, and the man who attempted packing the Supreme Court:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=CgdzZJePL04
      http://americanfreepress.net/?p=1834

      Why Gingrich Couldn’t Predict the Financial Crisis (and Paul Could):
      What we believe or say often reflects what we are. A Christian will typically contemplate questions within a Christian context. A conservative approaches the world within a conservative context. The same goes for liberals, and so on.
      But what if you don’t possess a certain set of principles? Sometimes defying categorization is a good thing. But if you insist that you are a “conservative” shouldn’t this be reflected in your worldview?
      What is Newt Gingrich, exactly? What guides his thinking? Here is Newt Gingrich vs. Ron Paul in predicting the housing collapse:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=dh4VFRx7ra0
      The reason Ron Paul correctly predicted the financial collapse—almost alone—is because he is a constitutional conservative in the strictest sense. Paul’s philosophy is as consistent as it is unwavering. Writes Richard Viguerie, direct mail pioneer and founder of Conservative HQ: “Dr. Paul’s candidacy continues to endure because he runs on constitutional principles and rarely panders to the establishment. And he’s been running that way for going on 40 years.” But why was Newt Gingrich unable to make the same prediction as Paul? Because Gingrich has no solid or consistent set of principles. Said Mickey Edwards, former Republican Congressman from Oklahoma and Chairman of the American Conservative Union: “I’ve known Newt now for thirty years almost. But I wouldn’t be able to describe what his real principles are. I never felt that he had any sort of a real compass about what he believed except for the pursuit of power.” Business Insider’s Michael Brendan Dougherty explains well Gingrich’s lack of conservative philosophy: “Newt Gingrich always has ideas. He has 5-point plans for fixing everything. He’s constantly pitching these ‘solutions.’ Ever wonder why Newt Gingrich has so many ideas? It’s pretty simple. Ideas come to you easily when you have no principles to get in the way of your roaming untrained intellect.” Many conservatives are now scrambling to explain or defend Gingrich’s fairly liberal record. They shouldn’t bother. Gingrich is politically schizophrenic. He’s been this way his entire career. Gingrich could have never predicted the financial crisis because he has no conservative or constitutional philosophy that guides his thinking—which remains as technocratic and micromanagerial as Mitt Romney or even President Obama. Dougherty is right: “Ever wonder why Newt Gingrich has so many ideas? It’s pretty simple. Ideas come to you easily when you have no principles to get in the way of your roaming untrained intellect.” Newt Gingrich’s entire career has been spent rationalizing big government from a Republican perspective. This is why he was so blind to the looming Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac meltdown. It was also because he was working for them.

    • Undecided

      Newt can be found voting for both the left and the right for one reason only: CASH.

      Newt plays both sides because his politics, morals and his soul are for sale to the highest bidder with no conditions and no regrets.

    • Johnnygard

      Half way through the first sentence I had you pegged for a Paul supporter. Lots of speculation based on NOTHING!

    • REC

      Although I like libertarian views, Ron Paul is too far out there. He wants to go back to the gold standard when there isn’t enough gold to do that.
      Sorry, I’m voting for Gingrich.

    • Mark S.

      how much gold is in Fort Knox? and what is the worth of gold right now? the Fed is unconstitutional(IMHO, as well as the Constitution), and, the “not enough gold to do that” statement is off base. “Article 1, Section 8, Clause 5 grants only to Congress the power “To coin Money [and] regulate the Value thereof”, with no provision for such power to be delegated to any other group.

      Congress began immediately to fulfill this obligation with the Mint Act of 1792, establishing a US Mint for producing Gold and Silver based coin, prescribing the value and content of each coin, and affixing the penalty of death to those who debase such currency.

      Article 1, Section 10: “No State shall … coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts”.

      Thus, the Constitution forbade the States from accepting or using anything other than a Gold and Silver based currency.”

    • http://windstream Sandra Leathers

      I will vote for whom ever gets the nomination, but If I do get a chance to vote in the Primaries, I will vote for Ron Paul. Newt, Romney, and Perry are all the same, and will continue to do the same that has been done for several years. They are all for the NWO. Ron Paul has consistantally voted by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. He is the only one that has been calling for something to be done to the Fed. Reserve for years. In the past, I ignored him, but not this time. I have seen too many Republicans elected to office only to do the same thing the Democrats have been doing. I believe both parties are corrupt. It is time to elect someone that believes in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the only one we have is DR. Paul. I am afraid if anyone else gets elected, we are stii going to be on the same path to the NWO.

    • Jay

      Ron Paul – The man who says that 9/11 was all the USA fault. He aught to be put out to pasture.

    • http://windstream Sandra Leathers

      He says that the US has meddeled in everyone’s business, and that is why they hate us and flew the planes into the World Trade Center. I agree. the US needs to mind their own business, and take care of people here at home. We need to get out of so much of this Foreign Aid, and take care of our own people who are struggling to put food on their tables. We should have never gone to Iraq. How many lives were lost, and how many people lost arms and legs, for what? Obama is bringing them all home now, and the fighting is going to be worse then it was before. We never should have sent troops to Libia. I’m not sure, but we probably have troops in Sirea now. We need to mind our own business and stay out of these conflicts, unless it directly relates to us.

    • Maynard Merrell

      Sandra Leathers: George Washington said athis fairwell address,” The great rule of conductfor us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have as little politicalconnections as posible… Tis our true policy to steer clearof permenent alliances, with any nation of the world.” Since WW II our country has become so twisted up in treates, executive agreements and secreat pacts, that we no longer have control over our own political decisions and monitary system and military force which has become the police force of the world. In 1954, a Congressional committee found that: “…there is a definite tendency to sacrifice the national interest in dealing with foreign affairs.” Since 1954, the situation has gotten a lot worse. Ron Paul doesn’t sound so bad now, does he?

    • Maynard Merrell

      Sandra Leathers: I think if you read the following search you’ll have a far better understanding of what I wrote. So will others: http://www.4rie.com/rei%201.html and: http://www.4rie.com/mainindex.html
      This pertains to the Bilderberg Group, which is an organization of 150 to 300 multi billioaires and trillionairs who own every bank in the world, and every news media, paper and electronic. They founded the European Union. Its parent organization is the Global Union (formally The New World Order), which you rearly hear or read about. You also don’t hear about the Asian Union, Soviet Union, the African Union, and the American Union consiting of Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean Island, the headquarters of which will be the United Nations in New City. The Arab countries were the hold outs. They wanted to keep their independence, so force was necessary to make them change their minds. What, now, would be a good excuse to start a war, possibly the downing of the Twin Towers, which lead to our invasion of Iraq and then Afganistan? Yet it was the Saudies that few the planes. Does Ron Paul sound even better now?

    • Maynard Merrell

      Sandra Leathers: After World War Two there ws a lot of fan fair for our returning troops. Parades and flag waves, hand shaking, hugging and kissing. After the Korea War, nothing. During and after the Viet Nam war the soldiers were called baby killers, they were spit on, beaten, and the army finally issued orders that the soldiers weren’t to wear their uniformas off camp for their own safty. In both those wars we were not allowed to win. Now see the change in the attitude toward our soldiers. No name calling, beatings prase and all kinds of aid. Why the change? Well, this time we’ve been fighting the enemies of our enemy. The Global Union wanted the Arabs to become the Arab Union, they refused, so our enemy, the Global Union, sent our troops to fight their enemy. Our trops are considered to be our enemis troops. So now the muslims hate our guts. Until then, they hadn’t done anything to us. Look at the lies were were told to get us to willingly send our troops the Middle East. I feel terribal about all the dead and wounded soldiers we lost. Maybe, Ron Paul isn’t so carzy after all.

    Thank you for this unbiased look at Newt Gingrich. I have followed him since the 80’s and I have always admired him for his straight forward approach to problems and his courage under fire, whether his personal life or his political life. I think Newt has done more good for this nation as a single entity than any other man in recent history; Maybe President Reagan would come close.
    His personal life was a shambles but he admitted it and made his peace with God and, besides, his personal life peccadilloes should have no bearing on his excellent political abilities. Consider Ike, FDR,JFK and the granddady, Bill Clinton,-all cheaters and Bill even a multi-accussed rapist.
    I sincerely believe Newt is far and away the best man to lead this Nation back to greatness. Mitt is a nice fellow but, he has flip flopped so much on so many issues, he couldn’t even make it back to the sea, much less be considered a sincere person.
    And Ron Paul is such a wacko, and now it is discovered he has had really bad ideas for this nation in the past, no sober American could, in any honesty, vote for him.
    And, of course, Michelle Bachman, the lady who a few short years ago lauded Newt to high Heaven, now lies outlandishly about Newt without even a flinch.
    Rick Perry might be a close second to Newt The rest are nice folks but, even collectively, couldn’t even carry Newt’s diddy-bag.
    I would like to see a Gingrich/Perry ticket; 8 years for Newt then 8 for Perry. I firmly believe, Newt, Perry, Huntsman and Santorum are the only ones who are honest and don’t lie about the others. We need an honest, honorable man as President. Newt is the man for the job. JCA…

    • Wondering Woman

      Poor choice! Perry is the governor who would make gardasil vaccines MANDATORY for both boys and girls in the state of Texas. Seems the guy peddling the gardasil vaccines is a buddy and contributor to Perry’s campaign. Very poor choice. We definitely do not ever want anyone in the Presidential position who would make vaccines of any kind mandatory. This is about as far out from the guidelines of our Constitution as one can get.

      Does Newt Gingrich Want The Constitution To Die?
      http://dailycaller.com/2011/12/13/does-newt-gingrich-want-the-constitution-to-die/
      Writes Ann Coulter: The Tofflers were a couple of old folks who couldn’t figure out how to program their VCRs, so they began writing about the “shock” of technology and how we needed government planning to deal with technological overload… Their big idea was that the world was about to change faster than it ever had before, creating a technological explosion that would frighten and baffle the masses… The government would have to have advisers and committees in order to ease the transition. Gingrich… announced that all legislation passed by the new Congress would have to pass a test: Will it help move America into the Tofflers’ vision of a ‘Third Wave’?” Coulter added: ”Not only were (the Tofflers and Gingrich’s ‘Third Wave’ ideas) completely crazy, but Newt’s grand schemes didn’t quite fit the Republican model of a small, unintrusive federal government.To say the least. Here’s a well done video recollection: Newt Gingrich and the Tofflers – “A Love Story”

      Newt Gingrich thinks “America’s challenge” (whatever this means on any given day in Newt-speak) is “compounded by our Constitution. “He is without question “for the United Nations” but appears to have reservations about constitutional limits–you know, the very thing every conservative from Barry Goldwater to Ronald Reagan has always emphasized as the basis of American government? Said Gingrich in a speech to the Center for Strategic and International Affairs in 1995:
      “The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution… Under our (constitutional system) — either we’re going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we’re going to have to rethink our process of decision-making… (I believe in) “very strong but limited federal government… I am for the United Nations.”

    • Willis

      “unbiased” means “you agree with me”. You could have said it i a lot fewer words and not sounded like such a hollow drum. Or you could just have said “Immorality makes you wise. or “Fornication is the hallmark of greatness”. There are so many other ways you could have said what you attempted to say with much fewer words. How about “The man who gets his pants off first gets the nomination.”. I guess I ‘d better stop before I out do you in wordiness.

    • C.Davis

      OK! One last time; squeeze your cheeks together, purse your lips, flatten your tongue on the bottom of your mouth, and repeat after me: G-G-Glo-Glo-Glo-bal-Glo-bal-Glo-bal-ist-Glo-bal-ist-Glo-bal-ist. GOOD, Now again curl your tongu against your upper teeth and say RRR-RRR-RRRE-RE-RE-pub- RE-pub lic-Republic-an- republican. Now, as you may be able to figure out, these two words do not rhyme. Nor do they bear any relationship to each other, other than as complete opposites.
      Globalists have no country, but serve the world government system.
      Republicans believe in having a country, or at least they have had one, but if they are hoodwinked into abandoning it to the globalists, a republic will be something that will be consigned to the dustbin of history, and Plato and Jefferson et.al. will finally be debunked
      Gingrinch, Romnery and pretty much all the “approved” GOP candidates are globalists, pushing their gospel of social control through eternal war-induced debt. Ron Paul is my president, and whatever happens with the dog and pony show I will be taking my marching orders from him.

  • Jstc

    This whole article is hogwash but the one sentence that made me laugh out loud was when Nutty Newt was quoted in answer to his adulterous nature: “(It was) driven by how passionately I felt about this country.” Woo Hoo! Ya can’t make up stuff like this! Hilarious! (Ron Paul, by the way, is the only candidate who can beat Obama!)

    • Johnnygard

      You need to re-read the sentence. If you still have the same interpretation of what he was trying to say, you are still wrong!

    • Wondering Woman

      Negative does not necessarily = untruthful.
      I appreciate the truth – if more truth re
      Obama had been forthcoming – he would not be in the White House now, even if he was a legal citizen, which he most likely never was.

      WHO’S NEWT?
      http://giveusliberty1776.blogspot.com/2011/12/whos-newt.html

      … and, most recently, he has proposed giving 30 MILLION Illegal aliens amnesty as long as they pay a small fine and can “speak English” — thus opening the door to ANOTHER 100 MIILLION, or more, family members! Good Bye America.

      “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” – Thomas Jefferson

      Whether it’s flip-flopping on TARP, supporting the individual mandate that served as a model for “ObamaCare,” joining with Nancy Pelosi in support of the global-warming crowd’s radical agenda, or making millions off of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as they helped destroy our economy, Newt Gingrich is trying to pull the wool over our eyes.
      He’s what is called a “counterfeit conservative.” Here’s an ad so you can hear Newt in his own words explaining his record of supporting liberal policies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Jzi3HBCS2M

  • tod

    Dr.Ron Paul 2012 for the ONLY PROVEN HONEST(for Well Over 30 Years),Intelligent,God Fearing,Patriot running for President,PERIOD !!!

    • Johnnygard

      tod, Again I say, he has a great voting record, with NO RECORD OF LEADERSHIP ACCOMPLISHMENTS!! A president needs to be able to get Congress to send him bills that he wants to implement. Without leadership, Paul would just be signing or vetoing what they send him.

    • Wondering Woman

      If he shows no signs of leadership, why are the other candidates borrowing his ideas? and trying to pass them off as their own ideas?

      I will stick with the guy who originated the ideas and has remained true to what he believes in for 30+ years, despite ridicule from other republicans. We have let both democrats and republicans stray too far from
      governing by the Constitution and you see where that has gotten us! Not only enough, but too much corruption in the federal government. Let’s kill the corruption by voting for a PRESIDENT who believes in the Constitution and voting out the new world order puppets in Congress to give him a fighting chance at saving this country!

      Google AGENDA 21 to see how close we are to being shoved under the new world order, and see how splendid you think living under Agenda 21 will be.

      Truth is that the majority of both the democrat and republican congressional members
      are traitors who are one world globalists, aka the new world order. Otherwise Congress would have acted against the corruption of this administration long ago.

      My biggest problem with Newt is his early campaign remark “someone should be filing charges of impeachment”. He is 100% correct and he is either 100% stupid or 100% coward, because it shouldn’t have taken an intelligent congressional member 3 years to recognize the need for those charges to be filed, and no one was in a better position to file those charges than he is or was. I don’t recognize this as leadership – just good showmanship at passing the buck. May God grant enough of “We the People” the wisdom to differentiate between showmanship and leadership and the ability to write the
      leader in if we have to do it that way to outsmart the new world order.

      Quit playing into their game and voting for a party – VOTE FOR THE CANDIDATE – if you love this country and your freedom and liberty.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      We do love our country…. That is EXACTLY why we will NOT be voting for Wrong Pual.

    • C.Davis

      You keep posting this lie, so answer me this. Who wrote an campaigned for the audit the fed bill and got over 300 co-sponsors for the bill, with it passing nearly unanimously in the house. Of course, the scumbags in the senate would only vote for a watered-down version which nevertheless resulted in a partial audit that showed that the fed had bailed out their buddies to the tune of 16 TRILLION dollars. That’s 32 thousand pallet loads of $100.00 bills. I liken this accomplishmant to that of Andy Jackson who ran on the platform of “Jackson and no Bank” The other remarkable achievment among many that I would cite is that through his entire career in congress he never once voted in contravention of his oath to the constitution, which many here seem not to know is the supreme law of our land because they are so accustomed to seeing these globalists wiping their hind ends with it.

  • tmt

    I am voting for Newt. He is super smart, he knows DC inside and out and he is tough. Whoever runs against obama will have to be able to outsmart the evil tricks that the democrats are pulling. They lie about everything and manage to make the other guy look bad. Obama is a pathological liar. However, he is no match for Gingrich. Newt will dismantle obama’s lies and expose him during a debate. Obama is scared to death of this. I also like Newt because he is going to have investigation into many things that went on in obama’s administration. He is also going to get rid of the EPA and create another agency to take its place, one without earth worshipping fanatics. Newt is my man, and I don’t care if he was divorced. He has learned from his mistakes and he is a better man today. He even admits to the mistake of believing in global warming at one time but, like me and many other, we figured out it was bogus. If Jesus Christ were to come back to earth, the democrats would paint a poison picture of Him. Meanwhile, Americans are suffering because of the things that the democrats have done. Liberalism is destroying America. Going too far left or right requires one to dump their morals. At least, Newt knows who he is and where he stands on issues and he is not afraid to speak his mind. I like that. It is better to have someone honest than a lying scum Marxist like obama for a president.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      TMT… Newt is the only viable candidate who can stand up to the libs and ozippo. Romney is probably ok, but I saw him being interviewed and he said that he doesn’t think ozippo is a socialist. He is saying that because he doesn’t want to offend the independants or the libs. He is already acting like John McCain, who gave the last election away. We must have some one who is strong and unafraid for this race is going to be brutal. The thugs are not going to let go easily.I am sending donations to Newt and I hope others will, also.

  • tmt

    I watched an interview this week with Clinton and Oreilly asked him about his opinion of Newt. He said that he “enjoyed working with Gingrich”. Gingrich had many good ideas and he can get things done. Clinton was a better president, in my view, because of Newt. Things were good in those years. That’s what I remember.

    • Wondering Woman

      You are aware that Clinton is a one world global government, aka the new world order advocate. So were Papa Bush and son George W. Bush.

      Gingrich Explains His Support for Individual Health Mandate – From the Glenn Beck program 12/6/11: GINGRICH: I am for people, individuals, exactly like automobile insurance, individuals having health insurance and being required to have health insurance, and I am prepared to vote for a voucher system which will give individuals on a sliding scale a government subsidy so it will ensure that everyone as individuals have health insurance.

      President Obama on the individual healthcare mandate, August 2011: “(Obamacare) should not be controversial… the individual mandate’s important… It’s just like your car insurance…”

      While in Congress, Gingrich co-sponsored 418 bills with Pelosi:
      http://dailycaller.com/2011/12/06/while-in-congress-gingrich-co-sponsored-418-bills-with-pelosi/

      Gingrich Supported Rockefeller Over Goldwater: Barry Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign was arguably the most important in the history of the American conservative movement, leading to the “Reagan Revolution” in 1980 and it continued to have a significant influence on the Right well beyond that particular election. Where was Newt Gingrich in this fight? Supporting Nelson Rockefeller:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=hJQsLFhuyOY&noredirect=1

      The “Principled Leadership” of Newt Gingrich:
      “I am not inclined to be a supporter of Newt Gingrich’s having served under him for four years and experienced his leadership. Because I found it lacking often times. There’s all kind of leaders, leaders that instill confidence and leaders that are somewhat abrupt, leaders that have one standard for the people that they are leading and a different standard for themselves. I will have difficulty supporting him for president of the United States.” — Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.)
      “We had to push Newt because he wanted to cave in… Those of us who told Newt, ‘If you don’t fight for a balanced budget and don’t fight for these tax cuts and don’t fight for the cuts in committee chairmanships, etc., etc., that we promised we were going to do, we are going to kick you out’ — those 10 or 15 or so, every one of them — Tom Coburn, Matt Salmon running again in Arizona, all of them. They may not be saying it publicly, but privately they’re sending me e-mails every day going, … ‘How many times does Newt have to teach these people he’s bad for the conservative movement?’–MSNBC host and former U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough, part of the “Republican Revolution” of 1994
      Via the The American Spectator’s Quin Hillyer: Former American Conservative Union Chairman Mickey Edwards was even blunter:
      “I’ve known Newt now for thirty years almost,” says former congressman Mickey Edwards. “But I wouldn’t be able to describe what his real principles are. I never felt that he had any sort of a real compass about what he believed except for the pursuit of power.”

    Newt is a great politician, but what we need now is a great leader. Newt is not a great leader. He has not come out with an idea that will lead us out of the mess that Obama, the Democrat party, and the MSM have gotten us into. Newt blows with the wind. Look at his former stands on GloBull Warming and Cap&Trade. When popular opinion said that’s the way to go, he agreed with it, when popular opinion changed, so did his!
    We need a leader who can stand by his convictions, come Hell or high water! By the way, the same could be said about Mitt Romney. We need a leader that knows what it means to lead, not just what it takes to get elected!

    • Johnnygard

      Newt was an unparalled leader in the late ’80s with his contract with America. He got Clinton to sign welfare reform after Bill twice vetoed it. That is called leadership, and if you are too young to remember, that’s not our fault. He has a new contract, still under construction, that you can see on his website. He is the only politican in my lifetime to put campaign promises in writing and then live up to them, all in the first 100 days. He has the ideas – which he has talked about and put into the new contract – and he has the record of delivering.

    • Johnnygard

      Bowhunter, Despite all evidence to the contrary, you claim Newt isn’t a leader. The article and I point out what he has done as a leader, and I get a thumbs down with no rebuttal. On what do you base your claim of Newt not being a leader?

    • Earle Belle

      The Sr. Administrator of HermanCainForums has soundly rejected Newt Gingrich & endorsed Ron Paul. In a Posting on the site he stated: “Now that Herman Cain has dropped out of the race my new candidate is….. Congressman Ron Paul. Ron Paul was the only candidate that actually had remorse for how the media treated Herman Cain and the alleged affairs, I will always thank him for showing respect in that nature, with that said. I had always liked a lot of what Ron Paul advocates, I don’t agree with him on everything but probably 90%. I am going to encourage all Ron Paul supporters to come here and openly support Ron Paul for he is now my new official candidate for President. I was asked to support Newt Gingrich, there is no possibly way I could every endorse Newt Gingrich, how the republican party is supporting Gingrich I have no idea.

      We are supporting Newt for many reasons, one of which is that we have to choose from the candidates we are offered, rather than from the candidates we wish we had.

Look at his record; it is worthy.

      You appear to be a lying sack of litter box filler. Who has followed him? the people’s house almost unanimously passed his audit the fed bill. And as far as your fooey about his financial dealings: maybe somebody can correct me here but according to my memory in the 2008 campaign McCain wound up with a $50 million debt, Clinton with a $60 million debt and Oblame was left with $90 million in debt. Ron Paul had a $12 milliom surplus which was used to found the Campaign for Liberty foundation which supports and encourages constitutionalist statesmen and informs the public as to the erosions of our rights. Now, I have 2 questions for you. First, which part of Ron Paul’s financial philosophy do you find fault with, and second, How are the debts accrued by the other three I mentioned paid? Answer if you haven punched out of your shift.

  • Larry Swicegood

    I’m amazed at how the liberal left and the main stream news media are so all of a sudden concerned about the past of Newt Gingrich. Where were they at when we needed to know about the past of Barak Obama, especially his radical associations with socialist and communists, not to mention his ties to a radical racist preacher. When the heat got to be to much, Mr. Obama threw these so called friends of his under the bus. That alone should tell any intelligent person about the character of this man. That’s not the kind of friend America needs in the White House. Friend or foe, Newt Gingrich will say what he believes even if it means losing a friend. You know where you stand with this man. That truth cannot be said of Barak Obama.

  • Big Tent Wins

    Big fan of Newt on the economy. Seems like the only candidate with a bolder than bold growth plan; ridiculously bold! It’s hard to imagine how much GROWTH a 15% individual flat tax, a 12.5% corporate tax, and 0% capital gains tax even looks like. I suppose Hong Kong/Singapore would be good models of indication. I think he also has the experience and ability to lead a grassroots movement of support to actually get the plan passed into law. It would be hilarious to see Obama defend his tax and spend agenda verses a bold growth model like Newt’s.

      Abigail, I think that back when I was single, you were the 57th entry in my alphabetical black book. Seriously, people need to read the article by Thomas Sowell. He is a real conservative and has it right on about Newt. NEWT HAS THE RECORD OF LEADERSHIP!

    Ron Paul Explains: Isolationism vs Non-Interventionism:
    http://patriotupdate.com/16011/ron-paul-explains-isolationism-vs-non-interventionism

    Ron Paul Supports George W. Bush’s Foreign Policy:
    From 2000, that is, of being a “humble nation” that does not engage in “nation-building.” Many say everything changed after 9/11. It did. America was attacked by radical Islamists, so we went into Afghanistan to route the Taliban who had aided and abetted Al-Qaeda. Virtually every American supported that mission, Congressman Ron Paul voted for it and the world was on our side in that fight. But what really changed after 9/11 was the degree to which our government used that tragedy as an excuse to launch an unnecessary war in Iraq and to stay in Afghanistan far longer than any American would have ever imagined. It is our post 9/11 haze, and the unconstitutional expansion of Executive power that accompanied it, we created a political environment in which President Obama can now send America’s military off to Libya without so much as consulting Congress. What George W. Bush describes in this video represents the foreign policy sanity Ron Paul would like to return to. Paul’s foreign policy is basically what Americans voted for in 2000. After a decade in Afghanistan and Iraq, most polls show that a war-weary American majority is eager to vote for the same policies in 2012:

    Is Ron Paul Wrong About Iran? What is more likely? Circa 2003: That Iraq has WMDs and poses a great threat to the United States? Or what Ron Paul said—that America was overreacting and we would find ourselves in a quagmire? In 2003, everyone said Ron Paul was wrong. In 2011, most Americans agree that Paul was right. What is more likely? Circa 2011: That Iran might have a WMD and poses a great threat to the United States? Or what Ron Paul says—that America is overreacting concerning Iran and going to war with that country will find the US in a quagmire once again? The notion that Paul is being “absurd” in his policy toward Iran does not make sense if history, experience and common sense have any bearing on the matter.

    As I have stated so many times, most of the Republican Candidates are in bed with the same puppet masters that now pull Obama’s strings. So it is with Gingrich.

    Obama has a healthcare plan and so does Gingrich, both Federally mandated and funded. The States have already spoken on this issue and have invoked the restrictions of the Federal Government as stated in our Constitution. But Obama choses to ignore it, and so will Gingrich.

    Rather than re-invent the wheel and roll it across America, it would seem to be wiser to simply use a fraction of those “healthcare” funds and give financial support to the existing free healthcare now available in every county and parish in the United States.
    Financial support without strings, but with the authority for audits ensuring that the money be used to healthcare and not to line anyone’s pockets. Instead of costing trillions, it would cost millions, and provide healthcare to all in need, without discrimination.

    Obamacare severly limits care to any non-productive person, targeting those who have worked all their lives and are now retired and no longer producing. Do you really think the Gingrich plan would be any different?

  • Ridge Runner

    There is no one answer to america’s poblems i think it will take time to undo what these unamericans have done to our country and our freedoms.Some of the things need to be scaped ,some need to be reworked and some can be left as is,We need a good constutionist leader that can lead the country while this is being decided. Ron Paul Is i think is honest and can do this. We also need to pull the weeds out of congress and the senate to make any meanful change to the direction of the country.

  • AmazedAmerican

    Not one single candidate in the republican group, could possibly have done even 1/10th of the corrupt and vile deeds that the current man in the white house has had his nasty finger in. The only one that seems to me, to be a liitle out of touch with reality, is Ron Paul. So what is the beef? There isn’t any. The Dems only know one way to play a game, and that is the dirty way. Going back through the years, we would be hard pressed to find a democratic pres that was not without morals. With each of those democratic presidents, our country dipped a little further into the dregs. Think back on our Clinton years. Talk about dregs? He dragged us thru slop. Now this one is doing the same thing, but even worse. This administration even stoops to outright killing, and no one even blinks.

    • PR

      Exactly!! Odummer cant run on his record because he has none. All negative on all fronts..obamacare..econonmy…job loss..unemployment..underemployment not carried on the unemployed rolls(if it were the rate would be 12% or more). He always has some excuse..the Bush’s fault line doesnt cut it any more…the Tsunami one never did work. The negative campaign they are running is just pathetic.If people will pay attention to what they arent doing in deflecting blame he can never be reelected and they know it!! He missed the jewish holiday by 2 weeks early..still thinks we have 57 states not to mention he thinks he is the 4th best president in history:( He knows that his health care plan is going to be thrown out(hows that payback from SCOTUS gonna feel mr snakeoil?) The thing we CANNOT allow is for a 3rd party to fracture the vote so this marxist bum cannot be reelected. Ron Paul is NOT presidential material. He has some good ideas but falls apart when he talks…obama would destroy him in a debate. Whomever they select to run will GET MY VOTE.

      I truly fear that the libbies will rig this election as well. They have already let illegals register..im sure there will be thousands more. Hound your congress critter…tell them to require voter ID..no have…no VOTE! God bless this country and here’s hoping we can take it back.

    Be wary of any Conservative candidate that boast of their ability to work in a bipartisanship basis to win over moderate Democrats. That is what got us into this mess! We have most certainly drifted way to far to the left to continue this policy. Remember, there are not any moderate Democrats as evidenced by their blind support in the election of, and continued support of Obama! We must take strong action nownow for our failure to adhere to the principles that this great country was founded upon. Support a candidate who is brave enough to say NO to the government’s attack on our Constitutional Republic form of government, traditional American values,and Free Market Economy. The only candidate that is unwavering in support of these principles is Michele Bachmann!

    • The Enemy

      Patriot: Any GOP member who utters the liberal Democrap terms “bi-partisan” and “compromise” should be run out of DC! And the first to go should be the limp-noodle House Speaker John Boehner!

  • Sonja M

    What does Gingrich’s PERSONAL life have to do with how he would run the country?

    You mean to tell me none of the past and present presidents don’t have skeletons in their closet? Get real!

    I’ve never understood why every election except Obama’s every dirty thing they can find on a candidate is aired. That’s not what an election is all about.

    Their qualifications are what makes them good or bad as a candidate,right?

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      Sonja M… People should remember that we are electing a presiident, not a husband….Everyone who can should send Newt a little money.

      Ann, I can’t swing it. All of my contributions go to the Ron Paul pcc. If you have any left over could you possibly send Dr. Paul a few dollars?

    • The Enemy

      Sonja M: Correct. If Obama’s past were properly vetted, we would be astonished at his associations and dealings and downright outlaw tactics. Buuut, he’s a good husband? Who cares? A “good husband” can destroy a nation!

      Hi Ann, Merry Christmas. Funny that I see many comments on how our Military are supporting Ron Paul. Out of three Military Basis that I frequent, I have not heard of one person supporting Ron Paul. Everyone on the Basis thinks he is a Joke.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      Well, Good Morning and Merry Christmas to you, LTJG… Long time no see. It looks like the Moonbats have ran off a lot of patriotic people with their foolish rants and out and out lies. I plan to stick around to tick them off. They are sort of fun in a preverse sort of way. They are always just under the boiling point, so it doesn’t take a lot to get them going. Hope to hear again soon… Best to you…Ann

    A wise man once said, “It never hurts to remember they say treason to the white race is Loyalty to Humanity.” This statement succinctly defines your treasonous and lackadaisical attitude toward Whites and their future survival. Your brainwashed contempt for your own people is not only despicable but displays a psychotic aloofness and scorn to the plight White people now face.

    Hey, but that’s OK, just go back to your video games and live the life of a tuber (out of touch with reality).

    • The Enemy

      john paul jones: Ron Paul reminds me of another squeaky little trouble maker named Ross Perot. Remember him?

    • john paul jones

      Enemy, I have no idea how Dr. Paul with his impeccable record could possibly remind you of Perot. Back in I think it was 92, I thought Perot was a true patriot–matter of fact even went to see him when he came to town. But after he got ‘spooked’ & dropped out the second time I had serious reservations about him. I don’t see Dr. Paul in that light at all. One thing that can’t be denied–he is as solid as the Rock Of Gibralter & is a true patriot–somthing that is very scarce in a politician these days. ck out his proposed budget–Ron Pauls Plan For America. ronpaul2012.com

    Why is it these liberal Jews think multiCULTuralism is OK everywhere except for in Israel?

    Multiculturalism destroys countries where ever it goes.

    The Roman Empire fell when it went multicultural.

    Yugoslavia vanished when there was an emphasis in multiculturalism.

    Jews like multiculturalism because they won’t stand out as much. Its good for Jews but not for the countries that allow multiCULTuralism

    This is happening to ALL White countries and ONLY White countries. It IS geNOcide!

    My take on Newt? He is a liberal running in a conservative party. He is loyal only to himself. As a life-long republican, I will not vote for him.

  • Berthold

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
    Except for DR. Paul which of the candidates running is a true constitutionalist, answer: not a one of them truly believes in the constitution. YOU BUNCH OF BRAIN WASHED LEMMINGS!
