With Newt You Know What You Are Going To Get!
He's Proven. New Mint, PROOF!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ NEWT GINGRICH 2012 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
That's the key phrase to label the weak GOP establishment, and their constant buckling under pressure. I expect the Dems to hide in a corner with their heads in the samd on Natl Sect, but not the Republican party.
Funny, but I found Red Dawn on Netflix this weekend, and when I saw the part where the Mayor of the town basically threw the "troublemakers" under the bus, it made me think first of a libral, and then secondly about an establishment Republican.
I'm assuming this is McCain's last term. But we need to do something about people like Graham, and Boehner to show that this party will stand just as strong and united as the Democrats, only we'll stnad on principles instead of empty rhetoric.
We have to clean house.
Allen West for Speaker!
Being "politically correct" has always messed up this country. Gingrich and Bachmann are 100% correct.
Like him or not Newt was the man to take Obama and his devious,lying,vile,contemptuous,liberal machine and their media hacks. He took no prisoner and smacked their smug faces all over the TV for all to see what they are made of.
It is a pity that too many Conservatives have become too complacent to care about what is happening, in earlier days Newt would have been regarded as a mild conservative. Now unfortunately Conservatives have let Liberals set the narrative of how a Conservative should behave and what he should say.
Thankfully from what has come out of Romney's last two speeches....he seems to have stepped up to the mark, not quite a Newt but he is hitting where it matters.
What is the deal with treason these days? Can you imagine what the forefathers would have done with this mess? That's when treason was a punishable offense though. Not anymore.
As far as the Republican leadership. What an embarrassment. Who cut their you know what's off? I'm tires of hearing boehner and McConnell. They are just as responsible as dictator Obama. Disgrace!
Very well said. Our "elites" had better come to grips with reality or get the hell out of office. The future of our kids relies on them stopping the strangle hold PC has on our government. The Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qeda and whatever other muslim groups are relying on the "elites" to stay complacent and allow creeping Sharia.
Bingo. A spy or enemy of the USA would have no problem infiltrating given the bizarre need for some of our leaders to prove to everyone that they aren't racist. Very dangerous for us all. I have no idea if this woman is a threat or not, but to shut down any investigation merely as if it's taboo is frightening. If she has nothing to hide, then fine. Let's examine the facts and see what comes out. McCain is a jerk.
Here is the letter that was very well researched, had footnotes and was not accusatory. Our country needs more patriots NOT politicians. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/238721-bachmann-responds-to-mccain-speech-the-letter-is-being-distorted
Louis Gohmert supports Bachmann..
"Well, it’s obvious that John McCain didn’t even read the letter because of what he said in accusing Michele and us of making these horrible accusations," Gohmert said on the Dennis Miller Show. "And I wish some of these numb nuts would go out and read the letter before they make these horrible allegations about the horrible accusations we’re making. But we also know that John McCain himself had said back in the early stages of stuff going on in Egypt that he was, in his words, 'unalterably opposed to helping the Muslim Brotherhood.' Well, obviously the unalterable person has been altered, so he is OK with it now." http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/239787--rep-gohmert-calls-mccain-critics-of-letter-numb-nuts
It takes a CONSERVATIVE to defend a CONSERVATIVE! The GOP is useless.
And there is NO SUCH THING as "radical islam"; IT'S ISLAM!
I miss his unique ability to break down situations and call them what they are in plain English. He needs to have more of a voice in our political discussions.
What are they afraid of learning?
We all have our doubts that BHO citizenry. Congress knows this and chooses to ignore this, because of the embarrassment this would cause. Nothing more, nothing less.
They would rather ignore the obvious, than to admit the truth.
Mohammed Morsi has pardoned 25 convicted Egyptian terrorists:
Mohamed al-Zawahiri, brother of Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, has said that the 572 military detainees pardoned by President Mohamed Morsy on Thursday included 25 leaders of Islamic Jihad and Jama’a al-Islamiya [the organization led by the "Blind Sheikh" Abdul Rahman, convicted of the first World Trade Center bombing].
This was the person I voted for in the primaries and it's a damn shame the so called Conservatives on our side (Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin for example) call him a progressive and bash him, but I digress.
I strongly feel, Newt is in the best spot. Romney can't say stuff like this because lets face it, while we would love it, Obama and the MSM will butcher him.
When Newt suspended his campaign, after all the debates and really being able to listen to him, I must say he should be the RNC Chariman.
Newt Gingrich should be given a leadership role in the Republican Party, period. Because we need people willing to speak the truth.
NO, because Obamney was "next in line" after McCain. There's a pecking order and those who are as useless as the GOP establishment is get the nomination.
A Conservative will NEVER get the nomination from the GOP elites. NEVER!
They didn't even want REAGAN! But now they can't talk about anyone else!
"We need a REAGAN."
"REAGAN was an exceptional president."
Reagan this...and Reagan that. But yet they REFUSE to nominate a Conservative LIKE REAGAN!
So they nominate the BIGGEST LIBERAL GOP RINO they could find. And you can only find one of those in Massachusetts.
Obamaney is going to be a DISASTER! He may be a stop-gap candidate, but he is just as useless as the rest of them.
Short but sad answer: because Newt speaks the truth and has a LOT of RINO enemies who were intent on getting even. Never trust a RINO. They are always looking for their chance to gore you.
Newt it right; MB is right... but I thing the whole Muslim question is a "third" rail topic which can only loose Romney votes. It needs to be dealt with after the election -- like declaring CAIR and its subsidiaries a terrorist organization and deporting all the members and their families to a nice Shari'a compliant country.
Of course the elephants are always demonized and mis-represented by the press, at will. However, you assume his silence is crafty defense, and that he has not been bought as well - but it is only an assumption. The islamists have a powerful alliance with the globalists.
Bush brought a great many of these islamists into his inner circle - not with the same intent as Clinton and Obama - yet he did it none the less.
Allen West has proven that a politician can stand, tell the truth, and survive. That is the courage and leadership America needs to lead us back from the darkness. Obama has inflicted great damage at a pace no other could. We have few time or options left. Now is no time for sugarcoatings and a timid leader.
Gee, who in our government said we couldn't talk about radical Islam? Was it the muslim in the White House? Just wonderin'..............
It runs deep.
Very different intentions than the usurper-in-chief, but listen to the words of the speech writer - they are essentially the same narrative.
Newt is absolutely right, and that's what is so terrifying about this. Political correctness has already gotten many soldiers killed and wounded at Ft. Hood. How many more Americans need to die before the Federal government, the military, politicians, and the American people will admit that we have a serious problem with radical Islam? If we get hit by another 9/11 attack, we could lose an entire city instead of a few thousand people. When are we going to admit that there are radical Islamists out there that are willing to see that happen? People need to understand that the struggle with radical Islam is a generational war that could certainly last longer than the Cold War. Are we prepared to fight that war?
Good grief, I can't stand to listen to an interview where a guest is invited, asked questions and the host is too arrogant and full of himself to even let the guest speak and answer the questions. What an *&&^%$#
We live in an upside down world, folks. Any question about Republicans is fair game, but question whether there are enemies among us, and you are branded a nut.
drphibes - re the nutjob branding, have you seen this by Jeffrey Lord in AS today? http://spectator.org/archives/2012/07/24/is-huma-abedin-the-new-alger-h#commentcontainer
Back in the '90s, when Newt was being skewered by the likes of Pelosi on the Ethics Committee (gag), Boehner was right there, in the shadows, helping to get him to resign his Speakership.
Today, while the likes of Bachmann and West are being skewered by the media, the left, and the RINO's, Newt stands tall once again to defend and support what is right, in spite of all the BS by the likes of the still PC Boehner.
It makes me sick when I see Boehner sitting in the Speaker's chair, a chair stained by the likes of Pelosi - a place where good men like Newt should be.
Thanks, Newt, for all you have given for your country.
Excellent post Nukeman. It's good to be back & reading your (and so many others') insightful thoughts.
There was a small cabal that tried to oust Newt before he decided to resign. It was led by Dick Armey, Tom Delay, Bill Paxton, and John Boehner. In typical fashion, years later, Boehner denied that he was involved. Some people never change.
Yes, he said it all started in his office. At least he realized his mistake, unlike the rest that refuse to see what they did, or do see but remain cowards with their silence.
Newt handed the Bush wing of the Republican Party the sword to end his speakership and then we ended up with the big govt Republicans running Congress and the White House and a tarnished party in 2006 that is still damaged 6 years later. I am not sure it will survive.
Unbelievable that the RINO's would cry foul on just asking legitimate questions about how some people got security clearances & into positions when it appears they would not meet the requirements. This Fabulous Five are doing their duty and due diligence. The only McCarthyism is coming from McCain, Graham, Cantor, Boehner (and unbelievably from Rubio of all people). It's obvious the critics did not even read the letters sent by the Fab Five.
Thank you Newt.
George Gaffney has a piece out right now referring to Michele Bachmann as America's 'Iron Lady'. Very good article. His website also has a report on a book published and translated by Abedin's mother, here http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/p19045.xml
In February, the American Conservative Union blocked Gaffney from the CPAC stage after investigating and dismissing “infiltration” charges he’d made against board members. He meant Grover Norquist, and the year before, David Horowitz actually succeeded in speaking on that very subject at CPAC. Hasn't been asked back. Before 9/11, Norquist was funded by the 'General Masul' of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood — Alamoudi - al-Qaida’s top bagman in America.
Want to know about the MB in America? Gaffney's Center for Security Policy has a 10-part, 8 hour documentary on it, available on youtube. Just found it so will start watching it tonight.
