Newt The Astute.
By far my favorite Newtism is “Gingrich Calls GOP Budget ‘Right Wing Social Engineering’
‘May 16, 2011’
‘The former House speaker broke from his party leadership on the Hill by stiff-arming the budget drafted by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and passed last month in the House’.
“I don’t think right wing social engineering is any more desirable than left wing social engineering”.(1)
Cathy McMorris Rodgers voted FOR that budget…….
Newt on what America is becoming
‘2008 Gingrich tells Bill O’Reilly that “there is a gay and
secular fascism in this country.‘(2)
‘2010 Sign of the times: Gingrich swaps gay secular fascism for
“secular-socialist machine“—which he says “represents as great a
threat to America as Nazi Germany’.(2)
‘2011 Secular-socialists give way to atheist-Islamists: “I am
convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the
nature of America, by the time [his grandchildren are] my age
they will be in a secular atheist country’.(2)
Newt and kids –
“They have no habit of showing up on Monday and staying all day or the concept of ’I do this and you give me cash,’ unless it’s illegal,” Gingrich said.(3)
“It is tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children in child laws which are truly stupid…These schools should get rid of unionized janitors, have one master janitor, pay local students to take care of the school.” —Newt Gingrich on abolishing child labor laws.(4)
Newt on Politics
“The problem isn’t too little money in political campaigns, but not enough.”(4)
“The idea that a Congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument.”(4)
‘1978 In an address to College Republicans before he was elected
to the House, Gingrich says: “I think one of the great problems
we have in the Republican party is that we don’t encourage you to
be nasty. We encourage you to be neat, obedient, and loyal and
faithful and all those Boy Scout words.”(2)
‘1990 Gingrich’s political action committee, GOPAC, sends out a
memo titled “Language: A Key Mechanism of Control” to several
thousand Republican candidates running for state and local
offices. It includes a list of words they should use to describe
“sick, pathetic, lie, traitors, radical, corruption, incompetent,
greed, anti-(issue): flag, family, child, jobs; intolerant,
welfare, corrupt, mandate(s) taxes, spend (ing) disgrace, cheat,
steal, abuse of power’.(2)
Newt on Newt
“I have six times as many Twitter followers as all the other candidates combined, but it didn’t count because if it counted I’d still be a candidate; since I can’t be a candidate that can’t count.” — Newt Gingrich, complaining that the press was ignoring his prodigious Twitter following, which had numbered over 1.3 million people. More than 90% of those followers, however, turned out to be fake — (4)
‘2007 “We should replace bilingual education with immersion in
English so people learn the common language of the country and
they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living
in a ghetto.”
‘Two years later, Gingrich unveils a new Spanish-
language website, The Americano’.(2)
‘2011 Gingrich tells the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David
Brody that he was driven to his cheat on his previous two wives
because of his one true love: America. “There’s no question at
times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt
about this country, that I worked far too hard and things
happened in my life that were not appropriate.”(2)
The World according to Newt
‘1980 Gingrich says: “We need a military four times the size of
our present defense system.” (See 1984.)(2)
‘1992 While campaigning for President George H. W. Bush in
Georgia, Gingrich uses Woody Allen as a symbol for what Democrats
want to do to America: “Woody Allen had non-incest with his non-
daughter because they were a non-family.” He adds, “It fits the
Democratic Party platform perfectly.”
‘Bush distances himself from
‘1994 A South Carolina woman, Susan Smith, murders her two sons.
Gingrich draws the only logical conclusion: “I think that the
mother killing the two children in South Carolina vividly reminds
every American how sick the society is getting and how much we
need to change things. The only way you get change is to vote
‘1995 Following the House GOP’s triumphant 1994 election victory,
Gingrich sends all the Republican freshman House members copies
of the GOPAC memo suggesting they refer to their opponents as
‘1998 Gingrich steps down as Speaker, amid ethics complaints and
rumors of an extramarital affair. He frames his decision in
pragmatic terms: “I’m willing to lead, but I’m not willing to
preside over people who are cannibals.”
‘1998 Gingrich divorces Marianne’.(2)
‘2004 Gingrich tells Fox News that liberal financier George
Soros’ opposition to George W. Bush might be due to his ties to
drug cartels: “[He] wants to spend $75 million defeating
[President] George W. Bush because Soros wants to legalize
‘2006 Asked whether he agrees with then-Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld’s comments that opposition to the Bush administration’s
Iraq policy is tantamount to appeasing Hitler, Gingrich responds,
‘2010 A year after writing a book about noted anti-colonialist
George Washington, Gingrich suggests that the current president
holds a radical, anti-British worldview of his own. “What if
[Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you
understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece
together [his actions]?” Gingrich asks. “That is the most
accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”(2)

‘Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) “didn’t even get to finish chewing,” National Journal reports’.
‘At a fundraiser with Rand Paul in Okoboji, Iowa, DREAMers Erika Andiola & Cesar Vargas confront Steve King for trying to end DACA. Rand Paul runs away when Erika says she’s a DREAMer’.
“Within moments of Erika Andiola introducing herself as a ‘Dreamer’ immigration activist to Paul and Rep. Steve King at an Iowa fundraiser on Monday, the Kentucky senator and likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate made a hasty exit… With a head nod from aide Sergio Gor, Paul wiped his mouth and departed while still visibly chewing, leaving behind his half-eaten hamburger.”

Ya have to ask the question.
Does Rand Paul just not know about the internet?
Well except to plagiarize?
‘Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Monday denied that he once supported ending federal aid to Israel — an idea he proposed as recently as 2011’.
“I haven’t really proposed that in the past,” Paul told Yahoo News when asked if he still thought the U.S. should phase out aid to Israel, which has been battling Hamas in Gaza for weeks. “We’ve never had a legislative proposal to do that. You can mistake my position, but then I’ll answer the question. That has not been a position — a legislative position — we have introduced to phase out or get rid of Israel’s aid”.
‘In 2011, the newly elected Paul proposed a budget that would have cut $500 billion from the federal budget in part by cutting off foreign aid to all countries, including financial grants to Israel’.

‘Republican House member Mo Brooks appeared on Laura Ingraham’s radio program Monday to discuss immigration, but ended up expressing his chaotic views on the imaginary “War on Whites” that Democrats are supposedly pushing’.
“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this was is by claiming that whites hate everybody else,” said Brooks. “It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well that’s not true.”
‘Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses Mo Brooks’ ridiculous statement’.
Any rate increase and Republicans will be screaming ‘Obamacare’ because insurance companies never raised rate before….did they……
Jonathan Cohn: “Back in the spring, once it became apparent that enrollment in Obamacare would nearly match or even exceed projections, the law’s detractors on the right started coming up with new predictions of doom. Among the most popular: Premiums in 2015 would soar, these critics said, because the people signing up for coverage would be older and sicker than the insurance companies had expected…”
“More than four months later, we have some better information. Insurers have filed their proposed 2015 premiums with state regulators and the regulators have started making those submissions public. It’s still too early to draw definitive, specific conclusions. But a group of experts that I consulted agreed that a clear trend is emerging.”
“Coverage will get more expensive for the majority of consumers, as it almost always does. Changes in premiums will vary enormously, from state to state and from plan to plan. But, overall, the 2015 premiums increases will not be significantly worse than they were in the past. They might even be a little better.”

INDIANAPOLIS | ‘U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., suggested Monday that immigrant children from Central America could be carrying the Ebola virus that has killed some 800 people this year in West Africa’.
‘The Munster native, whose district includes Newton and Jasper counties, made the unsubstantiated claim during an interview on Indianapolis’ WIBC-FM “Garrison” radio program’.
‘Referencing a conversation he had with U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-Newburgh, who is a heart surgeon, Rokita said they agreed there is a public health risk associated with the federal refugee agency placing immigrant children in the homes of U.S. relatives or sponsors’.
“He said, look, we need to know just from a public-health standpoint, with Ebola circulating and everything else — no, that’s my addition to it, not necessarily his — but he said we need to know the condition of these kids,” Rokita said’.
‘No human Ebola illness ever has been contracted in the Western Hemisphere and none of the 30,340 unaccompanied minors released this year to relatives or sponsors, including the 245 children placed in Indiana homes, have Ebola, according to the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement’.

‘Steve Baldwin, a former California lawmaker and onetime executive director of the Council for National Policy, believes that Tea Party and Religious Right activists should form a third party to “do to the GOP what the GOP did to the Whig Party 150 years ago.”
“I believe such a platform would unite all factions of conservatives and libertarians,” Baldwin writes in BarbWire today’.
