Newt Gingrich Name-Drops Sustainable Development Conspiracy Theory

Agenda 21 Evil

Newt Gingrich has been leading recently in the polls indicating he is the comeback king so far in the GOP race for the 2012 Presidential nomination. My friend Tony Newbill sent a Mother Jones link in which Newt speaks specifically against Agenda 21. Conspiracy Theorists believe the United Nation’s Agenda 21 is a program that trends the world’s nations to enter into a one world government. Most often Conspiracy Theory is kind of out there; however Agenda 21 is active with UN policy being instituted not only in the nations of the world but right here in America NOW.

I view Mother Jones as Leftist on the political spectrum. So I am certain that Mother Jones reporting on Newt is a criticism rather than a moment of praise; nonetheless the article provides a great abbreviated description of Agenda 21 as Conservatives perceive the global conspiracy to eradicate sovereignty and render the U.S. Constitution into an ineffective document of history.

Newt Plan for America

Newt & Callista Gingrich 2


John R. Houk

© November 16, 2011


Over the last several weeks I have been examining some GOP candidates running for the Presidential nomination. I started out looking at tax plans because Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 was simple enough to comprehend as a possible tax reform move that would raise Federal revenues and be fair taxation for American voters.


Not all the candidates are emphasizing tax reform as the fix. Many are looking at job creating projects based on Conservative principles that would in turn create more tax revenues without raising taxes using the current IRS tax system.


Because of the Cain success in connecting to American Conservatives with his 9-9-9 tax plan, some candidates have added some form of tax reform or lower tax principles to their American economy building plans which include issues dear to Conservatives such as the debt ceiling and lowering the Federal debt.


So far I have looked at:


·       Herman Cain


·       Michele Bachmann


·       Mitt Romney


·       Rick Perry


The path of examination is of no particular order; however when I began I have to admit a proclivity for Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain. I have never been a Mitt Romney fan. The initial appearance of Rick Perry as a GOP candidate initially caught my attention because of his appearance to not be affected by political correctness by opening a Texas State Christian prayer event even with Leftist contempt for a Governor to pray as a Christian. I loved that! Since then I am convinced Perry could not defeat BHO because our Left Wing President would chew Perry out and spit him out in campaign debates. There are other issues of Perry concern however going toe-to-toe with Obama in campaigning is my principle concern. As of writing this post Herman Cain has been assaulted with he-said she-said accusations of unsubstantiated sexual harassment open to the judgment of public opinion rather than a civil or criminal court. Recently Cain has had a debate moment in which hesitation of a foreign policy question on Libya caused an uncomfortable pause. Michele Bachmann is a person I still like especially as a Tea Party candidate and as a Social Conservative but there is the appearance that Conservative media and voters (opinion polls) have lost sight of her.


Now I am looking at Newt Gingrich who has actually begun a steady rise in the polls. Newt has always been a bona fide Conservative; however I sense the knock on Gingrich is he is an establishment Conservative. Gingrich has a bunch of skeletons in his closet that might alarm Social Conservatives such as his humiliating demise from Speaker related to an affair scandal. On the other he has been married to Callista for some time now and past sins are meant to be forgiven.


On my part Newt is beginning to look very consistent, quick witted and an excellent debater. I might be actually moving with some other voters into the Newt camp.


Let’s look at Newt’s design for a better non-socialistic Conservative Christian influenced America. Newt is actually fairly precise for his plan for America. A good place for detailed information is Newt’s campaign website There is a wealth of details about a prospective Gingrich Presidency to rival if not exceed Mitt Romney’s campaign website.


Since I began this expedition on examining candidates via their tax plan, Newt’s website has a tax plan that is compared to Mitt Romney:


Personal Income Tax


·       Gingrich: Choice of current system or 15% flat tax with personal, homeowner, and charitable deductions.


·       Romney: Maintain current tax rates.


·       Verdict: Gingrich Plan Better – he Gingrich plan gives Americans a choice to continue to file under the existing system, or to eliminate compliance costs and hours of paperwork by filing with a flat rate of 15%. The Romney plan hopes to make taxes “flatter” in the future, but offers no immediate choice and no immediate relief.


Capital Gains Tax for Individuals


·       Gingrich: Eliminate tax completely


·       Romney: Depends how much money the taxpayer makes.  Romney’s plan eliminates capital gains taxes for those making less than $200,000/year, but maintains the current system, with rates of up to 35%, for the rest.


·       Verdict: The Gingrich plan maximizes the capital investment and job creation that will accompany the elimination of this tax, and acknowledges that a tax reform is only fair if all Americans receive relief. The Romney plan determines that some Americans should pay no taxes on a particular investment, while other Americans should pay taxes of up to 35% on the same investment.


Capital Gains Tax for Corporations


·       Gingrich: Eliminate tax completely


·       Romney: Maintain current system


·       Verdict: he Gingrich plan is modeled on the success of the 1997 capital gains cut, which spurred job creation and a 500% increase in venture capital in just 3 years. The Romney plan maintains the corporate capital gains tax, an unequivocal burden on American job-creators who need to be freed to grow, prosper, and compete in a 21st century global economy.


Corporate Income Tax


·       Gingrich: 12.5%


·       Romney: 25%


·       Verdict: The Gingrich plan will create a boom of new American entrepreneurship by dramatically cutting the corporate tax rate to one of the lowest in the developed world. The Romney plan will still be average-to-high compared to the rest of the developed world, and still over 50% higher than our closest economic competitor Canada, which has a rate of only 16.5%.  Gingrich rate makes U.S. more competitive than Canada.


Payroll Tax


·       Gingrich: Eventually replace payroll tax with personal accounts, financing better results


·       Romney: No information


·       Verdict: Gingrich supports personal savings investment and insurance accounts that would eventually be expanded to finance all of the benefits now financed by the payroll tax, allowing that tax ultimately to be phased out altogether.


Medicare reform


·       Gingrich: Choice between the traditional system or opportunity to purchase private insurance with premium support


·       Romney: No information


·       Verdict: Under the Gingrich Plan, any American who wants to enjoy the existing Medicare system will be able to do so. Americans can also opt to transition to a more personalized system in the private sector with greater options for better care, where they would receive premium support to purchase private insurance.


As I said Newt’s website has many details for righting the ship of America’s prosperity. I found this decent summary of Newt’s overall plan that should bring some interest:



Gingrich told the audience that his 21st Century Contract for America has four components.


The first part consists of 10 legislative proposals to be finalized and published on Sept. 27, 2012, the anniversary of the original 1994 Contract for America, Gingrich said. Gingrich was a co-author of the 1994 contract.


The contract’s second component is a First Day project consisting of 100 to 200 executive orders that he would sign if elected president after his inaugural address. The executive orders would be developed over the next year and published on Oct. 1 as part of the last month of his campaign. The very first executive order he signs, Gingrich said, would “abolish every White House czar.” Citizens can submit suggestions for the initial executive orders.


“Part of our goal by signing the executive orders that afternoon is by the time President Obama lands in Chicago, we will have dismantled about 40 percent of his government,” Gingrich said.


Gingrich proposes developing a “real, genuine, serious training program” for members of his presidential Cabinet, subcabinet and other appointees as the third element of the contract. “The level of change that I believe you want me to implement is so large that I do not believe we can just appoint people and hope they are smart,” he said.


The fourth part of the contract involves creating a citizen movement to provide feedback “because the fact is we’re gonna make mistakes” with this scale of change, he said. “I think it’s important to have a genuine citizens movement using things like Facebook. Google Plus, Twitter and other new devices to try to find a way to connect us electronically so we can have a permanent ongoing virtual town hall meeting of the entire country moving forward in a way no one’s ever done before.”


During his talk, Gingrich frequently referred to the 10 legislative proposals in his 21st Contract for America displayed on a banner next to the podium. The proposals include repealing President Barack Obama’s healthcare reforms, creating jobs through tax cuts and regulatory reforms, balancing the federal budget, increasing U.S. energy production, saving Medicare and Social Security, revitalizing the country’s security, and enforcing the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution by transferring power from the federal government back to the states and the people. A complete list is available on his campaign website.


Gingrich announced he plans to challenge Democratic President Obama to seven Lincoln-Douglas style three-hour debates. He will be debating Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain Saturday in Houston on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, Gingrich said, and the debate will be televised on CSPAN. Also, Gingrich said he would like to engage GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in a debate on the economy and the size of government.


“What I really want the Republican team to understand,” Gingrich said, however, “is that our real opponent is Barack Obama.”

More Cain v. Bialek

Gloria & Herman Cain 5-21-11


John R. Houk

November 8, 2011


I have written that I am taking a wait-&-see path on the myriad allegations of sexual harassment against Herman Cain particularly this most recent one in which Sharon Bialek has mysteriously emerged fourteen years later going public about unwanted advances in an intimate interview for a job. I say intimate because the interview was not to take place in an office. Rather the job interview was to be a part of a business meal in the evening.


Now certainly there are all sorts of questions as to why Cain would set-up a one-on-one with an attractive blond (14 years ago) when he has been and still is married to his wife Gloria now going on for 40 plus years.


On the other hand what is it that a man runs for High Office and 4 women (3 anonymously) from 14 to 17 years ago decide to point a finger at Herman now rather than following through for justice when the alleged crime occurred? The first three gals decided compensation was better than justice. The fourth gal is not bound by an agreed upon gag order of confidentiality for money; however will money be forthcoming to the fourth gal Sharon Bialek? Obviously not from Cain; however money will come for her story or Bialek would not have hired high profile lawyer Gloria Allred. I am guessing Allred is not representing Bialek out of the goodness of her heart – which means money.


Unfortunately for Cain a he-said-she-said back and forth places the matter of proof upon Cain in relation to public opinion that the accusations are false and are politically motivated. I am guessing without the smoking gun truth Cain is done. The only alternative Cain has is a civil suit of defamation of character; however Bialek has hooked up with a saber rattling lawyer in Allred that signifies a civil suit battle is ready. Even if Cain wins the suit the information that will go public in my estimation will cause political harm for Cain’s campaign for the GOP nomination.


Judson Phillips has written a piece that is slanted in favor of Herman Cain. I am guessing the pro-Cain slant is due to Bialek’s lawyer Gloria Allred. Gloria Allred takes on the high profile cases typically on the basis that she is a Liberal feminist protecting women’s rights. It is not that Conservatives are against women’s rights, but it is that Conservatives are against the Left Wing agenda of women’s rights (e.g. a woman has a right to kill her unborn baby). There is an air that Allred might be a Left Wing political assassin more than a lawyer standing up for a woman that needs to be defending from a sexual predator like Bill Clinton – er I mean – a person that is an accused sexual predator like Herman Cain.

Cain v. Bialek

Sharon Bialek 3


John R. Houk

© November 2011


After the Left and the Mainstream Media began to smear Sarah Palin after her nomination for Vice President, one will have to forgive me if I wait a little while to find out if Sharon Bialek is a viable person or a character assassin of Herman Cain.


If Bialek’s accusation of an unwanted sexual advancement by Herman Cain is truthful then there is NO WAY Cain should be considered as a President no matter how good his agenda may be.


On the other hand if Bialek’s accusation is bogus and a political tool to discredit Cain so that a Conservative Black Man cannot face a Left Wing Black Man on November 2012, then Bialek needs to be fried publically, sued and possibly arrested for fraud.


I am going to wait to see if Herman Cain knows the real Sharon Bialek; i.e. Biblically or as a shrew looking for fifteen minutes of fame and some more money.

Meet the Real Herman Cain

Herman Cain


This might be chain email Friday. Here is one I am posting without fact checking merely because I like Herman Cain.


JRH 10/21/11


Meet the Real Herman Cain


What you may not know about Herman Cain who is running for president….


He’s not a career politician (in fact he has never held political office). He’s known as a pizza guy, but there’s a lot more to him. He’s also a computer guy, a banker guy, and a rocket scientist guy.


Here’s his bio:


·       Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.


·       Master’s degree in Computer Science.


·       Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics (making him a rocket scientist).


·       Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola.


·       VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury (this is the top of the ladder in the computer world, being in charge of information systems for a major corporation).


All achieved before reaching the age of 35. Since he reached the top of the information systems world, he changed careers!


·       Business Manager. Took charge of Pillsbury’s 400 Burger King Restaurants in the Philadelphia area, which were the company’s poorest performers in the country. Spent the first nine months learning the business from the ground up, cooking hamburger and yes, cleaning toilets. After three years he had turned them into the company’s best performers.


·       Godfather’s Pizza CEO. Was asked by Pillsbury to take charge of their Godfather’s Pizza chain (which was on the verge of bankruptcy). He made it profitable in 14 months.


·       In 1988 he led a buyout of the Godfather’s Pizza chain from Pillsbury. He was now the owner of a restaurant chain. Again he reached the top of the ladder of another industry.


·       He was also chairman of the National Restaurant Association during this time. This is a group that interacts with government on behalf of the restaurant industry, and it gave him political experience from the non-politician side.


Having reached the top of a second industry, he changed careers again!


·       Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Herman Cain went to work for the Federal Reserve Banking System advising them on how monetary policy changes would affect American businesses.


·       Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. He worked his way up to the chairmanship of a regional Federal Reserve Bank. This is only one step below the chairmanship of the entire Federal Reserve System (the top banking position in the country). This position allowed him to see how monetary policy is made from the inside, and understand the political forces that impact the monetary system.


After reaching the top of the banking industry, he changed careers for a fourth time!


·       Writer and public speaker. He then started to write and speak on leadership. His books include Speak as a Leader, CEO of Self, Leadership is Common Sense, and They Think You’re Stupid.


·       Radio Host. Around 2007—after a remarkable 40 year career—he started hosting a radio show on WSB in Atlanta (the largest talk radio station in the country).


He did all this starting from rock bottom (his father was a chauffeur and his mother was a maid). When you add up his accomplishments in his life—including reaching the top of three unrelated industries: information systems, business management, and banking—




Herman Cain may have the most impressive resume of anyone that has run for the presidency in the last half century.

Mormonism and Conservative Politics

Caveman - Mormonism


John R. Houk

© October 13, 2011


I am a Christian. Christians are those that believe Jesus Christ was crucified, buried for three days and Resurrected to ultimately sit at the right hand of the Father. Christians believe that Jesus is God incarnate as son of the Father hence the Son of God; the same yesterday, today and forever as the eternal God without beginning or ending. Christians believe that the Holy Spirit was the vehicle that impregnated the then virgin Mary that made Jesus human (I believe fully human and fully God) to have the ability to redeem humanity from the grip of Satan attained by the betrayal of Adam in the Garden of Eden.


This is the simplicity of Christ that all Christians believe. It is on minor theological points that Christians disagree on such theology as whether or not the Holy Spirit proceeds from just the Father or both the Father and the Son. These are the minor points that Christians have warred over and persecuted each other even though there was agreement on the major points that define a Christian, Christ the Lord and Redemption.


Now there have been authentic heresies that have sprung from Christianity that not only disagreed on the minors but also on the majors. Christian Gnosticism is one example:


A one-sentence description of Gnosticism: a religion that differentiates the evil god of this world (who is identified with the god of the Old Testament) from a higher more abstract God revealed by Jesus Christ, a religion that regards this world as the creation of a series of evil archons/powers who wish to keep the human soul trapped in an evil physical body, a religion that preaches a hidden wisdom or knowledge only to a select group as necessary for salvation or escape from this world.


The term “gnostic” derives from “gnosis,” which means “knowledge” in Greek. The Gnostics believed that they were privy to a secret knowledge about the divine, hence the name. (Huxley coined “agnosticism” on the basis that all knowledge must be based on reason. We cannot rationally claim to have access to knowledge that is beyond the powers of the intellect.) [Gnostics, Gnostic Gospels, & Gnosticism; Early Christian Writings – link above]


Now I have thought of Mormonism as a modern offshoot of Christianity through a Gnostic lens. Check this out from author Lance S. Owens:


The intrinsic and true American religion, pronounces Bloom in his widely reviewed book, is a kind of Gnosticism – alone a surprising enough declaration. But in evidence of this American Gnosis and as first hero of his story, Bloom gives us Joseph Smith. Of the man himself, he judges:


Other Americans have been religion makers….but none of them has the imaginative vitality of Joseph Smith’s revelation, a judgment one makes on the authority of a lifetime spent in apprehending the visions of great poets and original speculators…. So self-created was he that he transcends Emerson and Whitman in my imaginative response, and takes his place with the great figures of our fiction.”1


And of his religious creation,


The God of Joseph Smith is a daring revival of the God of some of the Kabbalists and Gnostics, prophetic sages who, like Smith himself, asserted that they had returned to the true religion….Mormonism is a purely American Gnosis, for which Joseph Smith was and is a far more crucial figure than Jesus could be. Smith is not just ‘a’ prophet, another prophet, but he is the essential prophet of these latter days, leading into the end time, whenever it comes.2


Brooke notes the “striking parallels between the Mormon concepts of coequality of matter and spirit, of the covenant of celestial marriage, and of an ultimate goal of human godhood and the philosophical traditions of alchemy and Hermeticism [SlantRight Editor: HERE is a great concise article on Hermeticism], drawn from the ancient world and fused with Christianity in the Italian Renaissance.” Of course, in this light Harold Bloom’s poetic reading of Joseph Smith as a “Gnostic” takes on broadened nuances: though unnoted by Bloom, Smith’s religion-making imagination was allied in several ways with remnants of an hermetic tradition frequently linked to gnosticism. (Joseph Smith: America’s Hermetic Prophet; Lance S. Owens; Gnosis Archives)



Below is the part of the article linking Joseph Smith to Gnosticism:


A “Gnostic” Joseph Smith?


… Within humankind there is an immortal spark of intelligence, taught the Prophet, a seed of divine intellect or light which is “as immortal as, and coequal with, God Himself.” God is not, however, to be understood as one and singular. Turning to Hebrew and an oddly Kabbalistic exegesis of the first three words of Genesis (an exegesis probably taken directly from the Zohar), Smith pronounced there are a multitude of Gods emanated from the First God, existing one above the other without end. He who humankind calls God was Himself once a man; and man, by advancing in intelligence, knowledge – consciousness – may be exalted with God, become as God.


Near the beginning of his ministry in 1833, Smith declared “the glory of God is intelligence”, eternal and uncreated. Those who wish to find in him a Gnostic have pointed out that Smith used the word “intelligence” interchangeably with “knowledge” in his prophetic writings during this period. Indeed, they suggest, his words might be read poetically to proclaim God’s glory is Gnosis – a Gnosis that saves woman and man by leading them together to a single uncreated and intrinsically divine Self.


I have led up to this point on Mormonism because in my estimation the religion is a cult that aims to be grouped with Christianity yet is apart from the major tenets that defines Christianity.


It may be offensive to Mormons that I point out that their faith is not a Christian faith and hence I stand against it. As a Christian it is my right to stand against the LDS just as it is the right of followers of Mormon cultism to have the right to propagate their religion. That last sentence is a very salient because it has to do with Religious Freedom and Free Speech in America. The only problem I have with Mormonism is its aim to evangelize Christians as if they are deceived. It is up to the Christian to buy into the deception or register “no sale”. A follower of Mormonism absolutely has the right to follow and proclaim their faith to America and humanity as far as I am concerned.


There is the gigantic Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (LDS), the much lesser Reformed Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS) and a handful of splinter Mormon groups that are determined to follow the Mormonism of the LDS founder and the LDS next in command. The first two Mormon groups especially are supportive of the U.S. Constitution at least as far as the First Amendment goes. They are supportive of American Liberty, Freedom and the Pursuit of Happiness.


Now I will rail against Mormonism as an anti-Christ theological movement; however the followers of Mormonism that are devout plug into Christian values of right and wrong as well as to what is sin and that which is not sin. I will not vote for a Mormon for a political Office because of my Christian beliefs UNLESS the only alternative is a greater evil. The example of a greater evil is intolerant Islam that would propagate by the sword if it had the strength to do so. Another example of a greater evil is a godless atheist (usually with Marxist underpinnings) that has a vision to eliminate Christianity as well as all religious faiths which would include the limitation or the elimination of First Amendment rights in order to transform America into a Left Wing utopia. Incidentally a Left Wing utopia will always be the goal presented to the people but will never arrive because a godless human nature can never give up the notion of absolute power to bring about an actuation of utopia. Hence, the utopia goal will always be presented but the perpetual use of authoritarianism will be maintained in the name of transformation to get to the elusive utopian goal.


Now that I have established will look at a Conservative Mormon candidate for anything, let’s look at Mitt Romney.


I am never going to vote for Mitt Romney in any primary I am able to vote in. Why? If you have read this far the answer is obvious – Romney is a Mormon. On the other hand of Romney is unwisely selected by the rest of the Republican Party to face President Obamunist, I will vote for Romney.


I will vote for Romney even if his Conservative credentials are not exactly stellar. President Obama has placed such a burden of guilt to the entire world by globetrotting with an apology for American past actions for all the evils that have beset the world that he projected that America is evil rather than the fact that America is more responsible for spreading Liberty globally than any other nation. Were international toes stepped on as we proceeded or continue to proceed with American largesse? Sure, toes were stepped on. If American National Interests are not preserved, the America that has given tons of money both as a government and as individual donors would disappear. Americans do not want to disappear. If the nations that spew hatred toward America would examine their past (ESPECIALLY EUROPEANS), a greater appreciation of America’s largesse should be appreciated. Without the American military umbrella and post WWII reconstruction on the American taxpayer dime, most of Europe and Germany in particular, would not have attained a Western standard of prosperity that it now has. Sure Europe is suffering a bit in the economic realm; however that is more because they invested their economy in developing a democratic socialism (money freed from spending military defense from the likes of the USSR and present day Russia) than in building free market sustainability.


Frankly I am looking at Herman Cain or Michele Bachman as choices for the GOP nomination before I vote before Romney. As much as I loathe Libertarian slanted Ron Paul, I would even vote for him before I would vote for Romney. Nonetheless, if Romney wins the nomination I will vote for him to make sure President BHO does not win.


The inspiration for these thoughts on a Romney candidacy comes from a WND Article by Joe Kovacs entitled “Mormon bishop’s daughter spills Romney’s ‘secrets’ …” The article delves into a Mormon Conspiracy Theory that there is a Mormon agenda to get Mitt Romney elected for some purpose to benefit Mormons in America. Is that true? You will have to read that and decide for yourself.

Palin Opts Against 2012 Presidential Run

Sarah Palin


Sarah Palin’s announcement that she would not seek the GOP nomination for President is a matter of great sadness to me and Palin supporters; however I believe she waited too long. I pray no one attempts to convince her to run as an Independent or as a Third Party candidate because that kind of Conservative split would guarantee an Obama victory in 2012.


Whoever wins the GOP nomination must understand the campaign weapon Sarah Palin can be. It is time for us Palin supporters to begin barnstorming for another Vice Presidential selection for Sarah Palin!

Rick Perry to Announce

Rick Perry


John R. Houk

© August 12, 2011


Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) has told FOX News he is making a definitive announcement on Saturday.


Texas Gov. Rick Perry will make “a definitive announcement that he is in the 2012 race for the presidency Saturday,” aides told Fox News.


The governor’s Spokesman Mark Miner confirmed late Thursday that Perry will enter the race.


“This is it,” a Perry source told Fox News. “No exploratory committee, no more deliberation.”


Perry will spend most of next week on the road officially campaigning.


Team Perry acknowledges they had only been hinting about a run earlier, but now tells Fox News first that Saturday is the official launch.


Frankly the little coverage I have seen of Governor Perry places him in a favorable light. Then I heard that Perry was a former Democrat that served as State Chairman to get Al Gore elected as President. Today Gore is as loony as a Leftist can be. I understand that Perry’s Dem Party days were those of a Southern Democrat Conservative that supported many Conservative causes: No Fed funds for abortion, pro-gun, was with President Reagan on supporting Nicaraguan Contras against the Communist Sandinistas and so on. These kinds of Democrats are few to non-existent today.


I am going to hold my thoughts on Governor Perry’s for the GOP Presidential nomination until I learn and listen to him to see what he as to offer. If the Texas Governor turns out to be a RINO, I definitely will not be in his political camp.

Rick Perry and Agenda 21-ICELI



Whereas Tony Newbill focused on Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty in the post “Romney, Pawlenty, Agenda 21: Road to Serfdom,” this post zeroes in on Governor Rick Perry of Texas. FOX News reports I have been listening to show that Perry might be a heart beat from entering the GOP Presidential nomination race. I had no idea until I read this that Perry has all the baggage of the label RINO.


The only problem I have with the Newbill post is one of the links lists Sarah Palin as a proponent of Agenda 21 in America. Palin is a less taxes and less government Tea Party kind of gal. Agenda 21 is all about government manipulation to appear local when the program is really a sovereignty busting United Nations program to control people, the way people live, the environment people live in and population control. I probably left a few Liberty destroying aspects of Agenda 21 but you get the idea. Palin definitely is not about government tentacles invading the individuality of a person’s life.


This Newbill post has been edited by me and I have arbitrarily chosen quotes from the links provided by Newbill for greater clarity. If you find this post interesting you may wish to examine the link content in its entirety. The Newbill links will be in plain text. The links inside the quotes will be in html.
