Conservatives Stand-Up to Support Gingrich


John R. Houk

© January 19, 2012

 

Newt Gingrich had a superior debate performance on Monday’s GOP debate hosted by FOX News. Mix this with Sarah Palin endorsing Newt in South Carolina to further vet GOP candidates by keeping the process active; i.e. to keep Romney from winning the nomination for the Republicans.

 

 

Well Palin didn’t actually say the last part but we all know that is what she meant. And I say good for her and good for Newt. Anyway the mix is this: It is time to unite behind a candidate that is the best person to represent Republican Conservatives. There is no way that Mitt Romney is that Conservative. He simply has a record of supporting too many Center-Left issues.

 

Regardless of some bad choices of hooking up with Alvin Toffler’s Left Wing Futurist vision of tomorrow, Newt has a better record of fiscal Conservatism with bringing the House of Representatives back to the Republican Party for the first time since President Franklin Roosevelt. The original Contract with America that Newt was the primary architect of brought a GOP majority forcing Left Wing President Slick Willy Clinton to move away from the Left to a more centrist position in order to work with Congress to govern.

 

A smart move now is for Conservatives to unite behind Newt Gingrich again. Only this time Newt will not be dealing with the Executive Branch as Speaker of the House, but will be in charge of the Executive Branch as President of the United States.

We need an American energy plan — ‘strait’ away


Hormuz-Ayatollah-Uncle Sam

 

I am currently on Newt’s band wagon to the GOP nomination. So it should not come as a surprise when I cross post his thoughts. In Newt’s 1/18/12 e-newsletter he says America must be prepared to stop a Nuclear armed Iran, be prepared to confront Iran over the threat to close the Strait of Hormuz and to develop oil resources which are huge in America but are untapped due to über-Leftists agenda to promote ecology over economy.

 

Newt’s foreign policy agenda and the promotion of developing oil resources on American soil are thoughts congruent with America Exceptionalism. I say Amen.

Newt Gingrich’s Message is Anything But Political


Dry Bones Palestinian Quiz

 

Newt Gingrich spoke a truism a couple of weeks ago in an interview on The Jewish Channel:

 

“I think we have had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs,” Gingrich said, after affirming “I believe that the Jewish people have the right to have a state.” Gingrich went on to suggest that differentiating between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority is not always appropriate, as “both…represent an enormous desire to destroy Israel.” He also specifically criticized PA President Mahmoud Abbas, saying he did not recognize Israel’s right to exist; Abbas has said he won’t recognize Israel as a Jewish State. (Emphasis SlantRight)

 

For saying the Palestinians are an invented people Newt has been excoriated especially by the Left and by the Right as well. I applaud Newt for having the guts to speak the truth about Arabs that call themselves Palestinians. American pundits and politicians have been brainwashed to think of these Arabs living in Gaza and Judea-Samaria are a group of people entitled to a nation.

 

On the December 10 GOP debate Newt stuck to his and clarified his thoughts that the Palestinians are an invented people:

 

Is what I said factually correct? Yes. Is it historically true? Yes,” Gingrich said. “We are in a situation where every day, rockets are fired into Israel while the United States – the current administration – tries to pressure the Israelis into a peace process.” (Washington Post 11:36 AM ET, 12/12/2011)

 

Consider this background for the article Norma Zager wrote in defense of Newt and Israel below.

Newt the Conservative Candidate

I have been leaning toward Newt Gingrich as a nominee choice for the GOP lately. Newt has been surging in the polls lately so I am guessing that I am not alone in that migration. Again I still like Michele Bachmann and will not hesitate to favor her again if she can get more support on board with her effort to win the nomination.

 

I am discovering though that Newt has many Conservative detractors that are calling him a Liberal or a Socialist in disguise. I am finding this especially among Conservatives that consider themselves among Independents and/or a Conspiracy Theorist slant.

 

My Conspiracy Theory buddy Tony Newbill echoes the complaint with this John Birch Society video that is a warning that Newt is not a true Conservative.

 

NEWT did you want to point out the foulness of The Third Wave by Alvin Toffler in 1994 when you became Speaker or Internationalize the USA?

NEWT did you want to point out the foulness of “The Third Wave” by Alvin Toffler as is described in this Video about when you became Speaker in the 1990s. You wanted the Congress to read this book, so was it to show the kind of ideology that was Infiltrating the USA policy making in Washington or was it to align with this ideology?

   
 

Please forward the video to the time frame 11:40:

Below is a link that is set to start at the 11:40 mark:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWPz1Qdq1uI&t=11m30s

 

Kelleigh Nelson wrote a two part hit article on Newt Gingrich entitled “The Phony Right-Wing & Who is Selling Us Down the River? – Newt Gingrich: Part One & Two”.

 

Nelson begins Part 1 by describing Newt’s ten years in Congress as a closet communist by comparing Newt’s Congressional agenda to various Marxist ideologies. At this point Nelson calls Newt a Neocon. Evidently she considers Neocons as closet Communists because many of them actually came from a Communist background. The problem with her closet Communist assessment is that Neocons that were former Leftist Liberals abandoned Communism recognizing the utter failure of the Marxist based ideology. My perspective on Neoconservatism is that they are people that support Conservative values domestically and American Exceptionalism in relation to Foreign Policy and Foreign Relations. It is the less government – more government paradox. Neocons have rejected Big Brother control of the populace hence the less government domestically. Neocons see two objectives that need to be sustained (yes I know “sustained” is an evil word among Conspiracy Theorists). One objective is to promote any policy that protects American sovereignty as the world’s exceptionally best nation. The second objective is to spread American values internationally at all costs to promote a world that is more for us than against us. I realize these two objectives I have thought up are quite subjective and I am certain that intellectual Neocons could list quite a number of specifics; nonetheless in a nutshell I believe this is an easy to comprehend summary of Neoconservatism. Both objectives lean toward big government to maintain American Exceptionalism. Libertarians and Paleocons (i.e. more traditional Conservatives) have a problem with big government of any kind.

 

Then Nelson proceeds to list her perspective on Bills that Newt voted “Yea” on to contradict Newt’s Conservative bona fides.

 

In 1994 Newt voted:

 

1.   YEA to the National Endowment for the Arts

 

2.   YEA for 1.2 billion for UN peacekeeping

 

3.   YEA for the presidential line item veto

 

4.   YEA for 13 billion in foreign aid

 

5.   YEA for 166 million more for the IRS

 

6.   Led Congress into GATT with fellow CFR member Bill Clinton and then stated that it was a very big transfer of power.  It was, because it overrode Article 1, Section 8 of the constitution.  As well, GATT reduces the amount of money we can save for pensions.  He jawed with President Clinton in NH that he was a huge fan of FDR and Woodrow Wilson, two of the most despised early communist leaning presidents.  Remember Wilson gave us both the federal reserve and the 16th amendment, income tax.

 

He also voted:

 

1.   China as Most Favored Nation for trade

 

2.   Voted to supply funds to subsidize trade with the Soviets.

 

3.   Voted to transfer 2.2 million acres in Idaho to Wilderness status.

 

4.   Voted for federal funding loan guarantees for greater trade with Red China.

 

5.   Voted for taxpayer funds being available to foreign governments through export/import banks.

 

He is pro amnesty – Joe Galloway wrote in December 2010 that both Newt and Jeb Bush were pro-amnesty.  Gingrich stated, “We are not going to deport 11 million immigrants.”  How about 40 million Newt…send them home, they’re an invasion!  (Link (Link Dead))

 

He is pro foreign aid.  In 1995 he voted for 31.8 billion in foreign aid, but wouldn’t vote to cut foreign aid by a measly 1%.

 

Newt also backed a strong central government, strong environmental laws, national service programs, the United Nations Goals 2000 (which many Republicans voted for), federal financing of local police, and UN peacekeeping missions for our military.

 

Gingrich is pro-Obamacare and even advocated it in the 90s on Meet the Press, and recently.  (Link)

 

He did a Global Warming ad with Nancy Pelosi that is coming back to haunt him, but in reality, he is a big environmentalist. (Link)

 

Is pro-Gun Control — Newt is currently circulating a letter advertising a DVD called:  “America at Risk” for which you may obtain a copy if you send him $35.00 or more.  On page 3 of his six-page letter he says:  “Today the choice is yours:  You can either sit back and allow Barack Obama and the liberal elite to disarm our country, leaving us defenseless against enemies who explicitly desire to erase America from existence.”

 

If you are Conservative these points that Nelson is portraying should send shivers of distrust up and down your spine. Nelson’s point is that Conservatives should not trust Newt Gingrich in his current campaign rhetoric which has all the appearances of a Conservative Republican candidate.

 

I posted some thoughts on Newt’s illegal alien plan that included much of his 21st Century Contract with America which goes beyond the issue of illegals in America. That post is entitled, “Frankly I Like Newt’s Thoughts on Illegal Aliens”. Newt’s plan answers Nelson on the issue of the fake Conservative accusation. Frankly a comparison may connect Nelson’s indictment of Newt being a Neocon. I have Neocon leanings hence that makes Newt even more likable for me. You should note that Newt is NOT working a campaign with a Leftist message that government control the lives of American citizens. Newt is asking voters to send out their thoughts on how to improve America. Newt does not say he will use those thoughts; nonetheless it implies Newt would keep his possible Presidential Administration in contact with the little guy who actually thinks rather than is propagandized on how to vote.

 

Then Nelson joins many Conservatives with distrust of Newt because of the association with futurist Alvin Toffler.

 

Okay, so we’ve gone over what Newt has done in the past, and part of what he stands for, but we haven’t touched at all on his belief in Alvin and Heidi Toffler’s The Third Wave. To make it quite clear, Toffler’s beliefs are rooted solidly in communism, but dressed up thoroughly in neo-con speak and sprinkled with the tiniest bit of capitalism. This is why so many of our electorate are fooled by the RINOs and why so many of these RINOs go along with the communists in the Democrat party.

 

In 1994, Newt presented a list of 8 works he wanted everyone to read….first was the Declaration of Independence, second the Federalist Papers, and third was The Third Wave, by Alvin Toffler printed by the new age Progress and Freedom Foundation. Alvin Toffler is Newt Gingrich’s mentor, so we need to take a closer look at what Toffler espouses in The Third Wave. By the way he never mentioned reading the Constitution and for good reason. He wants to be rid of it.

 

Toffler believes mankind is entering a new system. To the founding fathers in his book, he wrote, “For the system of government you fashioned including the very principles on which you based it, is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare. It must be radically changed and a new system of government invented, a democracy for the 21st century. …

 

Nelson proceeds to use an eight part article entitled Democrats in Drag by Steve Farrell as a data base to describe Toffler as a Marxist-Communist. Remember this is important to Nelson because Newt and Toffler are buddies at least intellectually.

 

Farrell compares Toffler’s book Third Wave as a futurist concept that has been used in the past. Farrell lists three people from the past he considers Communistic:

 

1.   Plato – The Republic

 

2.   Karl Marx – The Communist Manifesto

 

3.   Adolf Hitler – “National Socialism” which is Nazism which has Mein Kampf as the primary document.

 

Is Toffler a Communist? A Free Republic blogger quotes a New American article in which Toffler’s thoughts run like this:

 

In 1994, Gingrich described himself as “a conservative futurist”. He said that those who were trying to define him should look no farther than The Third Wave, a 1980 book written by Alvin Toffler. The book describes our society as entering a post-industrial phase in which abortion, homosexuality, promiscuity, and divorce are perfectly normal, even virtuous. Toffler penned a letter to America’s “founding parents,” in which he said: “The system of government you fashioned, including the principles on which you based it, is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare. It must be radically changed and a new system of government invented—a democracy for the 21st century.” He went on to describe our constitutional system as one that “served us so well for so long, and that now must, in its turn, die and be replaced.”

 

Honestly the parts the New Republic blogger emphasizes certainly is the objective of Marxism especially as espoused by Italian Communist Antonio Gramsci. Leninist-Marxism desires societal transformation via violence. Gramsci-Marxism desires societal transformation by infiltrating culture and government to transform society slowly by the rule of law with people not realizing what is happening to them. Incidentally BHO’s hero Saul Alinsky is kind of an American version of Gramsci-Marxism.

 

Here is a review of a book (Cyber-Marx – Aufheben) that includes a snippet of information of Alvin Toffler thought.

 

 

Information revolutionaries

 

 

The ‘information revolutionaries’ have revamped the post-industrial thesis as the transition to the ‘information society’ in which industry has been succeeded by information. The ‘revolutionary doctrine’ of those who have argued that this ‘information revolution’ is both inevitable and desirable, and to which one must adapt or face obsolescence is summarized by Dyer-Witheford in seven points:

 

1. The world is in transition to a new stage of civilisation, a transition comparable to the earlier shift from agrarian to industrial society.

 

2. The crucial resource of the new society is technoscientific knowledge.

 

3. The principal manifestation and prime mover of the new era is the invention and diffusion of information technologies.

 

4. The generation of wealth increasingly depend on an ‘information economy’ in which the exchange and manipulation of symbolic data matches, exceeds, or subsumes the importance of material processing.

 

5. These techno-economic changes are accompanied by far-reaching and fundamentally positive social transformations.

 

6. The information revolution is planetary in scale.

 

7. The information revolution marks not only a new phase in human civilization but also a new stage in the development of life itself.

 

Alvin Toffler is a former Marxist who has popularised these ideas and polemisized against what he now considers to be an obsolete Marxism. According to Toffler, as the information economy eliminates the factory so the legions of mass labour vanish, and with them Marx’s historical protagonist. The industrial proletariat disappears to be replaced by workers who ‘own a critical, often irreplaceable, share of the means of production’: knowledge. Thus the foundation for Marx’s theory of class conflict falls away – class as a collective identity based on adversarial relations of production will have been dissolved. (Emphasis SlantRight)

For the information revolutionaries, therefore, information technology has created a world in which communism is neither possible nor necessary.

 

This reviewer calls Toffler a “former Marxist.” Not so much because Toffler has abandoned the Marxist dream of a socio-political utopia, but because Toffler believes the Information Revolution (The Third Wave) will render class conflict irrelevant because the fruit of production – knowledge – will be shared across the class spectrum from the proletariat through the bourgeoisie. Toffler believes the Information Revolution will transform this world’s socio-political culture (or I guess cultures plural) in a natural evolutionary way.

 

So Toffler is not a Marxist in either the Leninist or Gramsci fashion, but he is a Leftist that predicts society-culture will abandon property rights and religion. I am uncertain about Toffler’s thought on free expression that would include both Liberal and Conservative having the ability to freely express thoughts on values; however it would follow that if Toffler believes there is a place for moral reprobates like homosexuals and transsexuals in his vision of a transformed society, and he does, I would have to guess religious morality (whether Christianity, Islam, Judaism or any other religion) is something to be rid of.

 

Thus Toffler’s vision of a transformed society-culture fits closer to Obama’s vision for “Change” than does Conservative and Family Values that is usually part of Republican Party platforms. So where does Newt Gingrich fit as a Republican vis-a-vis Toffler’s vision for transformation?

 

Newt’s 21st Century Contract with America is an awesome document of a Conservative paradigm reversing years of entrenched elitism governing our nation. A page on Newt’s campaign website lists three ways to reverse changes that have transformed Americans away from experiencing Constitutional Original Intent to experiencing the Liberal view of a Living Constitution that can be remolded to the views relativist rule that has enabled Leftist elites to morally harm America morally by attaching a European model of the rule of law.

 

Three large facts come from these ten specific challenges to the survival of America as the freest, most prosperous, and safest country in the world:

 

1.   No single, narrow solution can meet our challenges. These problems are so pervasive and so widespread that only a comprehensive strategy can break through and force the changes needed for America’s survival as a free, prosperous, safe country based on the principles of the Founding Fathers.

 

2.   The combined forces of the elites—in the news media, the government employee unions, the bureaucracies, the courts, the academic world, and in public office—will fight bitterly and ruthlessly to protect their world from being changed by the American people.

 

3.   Therefore any election victory in 2012 will be the beginning and not the end of the struggle. It will take eight years or more of relentless, determined, intelligent effort to uproot and change the system of the elites—laws, bureaucracies, courts, schools– and replace it with laws and systems based on historic American values and policies.

 

 

These three points are a part of Newt’s defense for the need of a 21st Century Contract with America. The page carefully avoids Leftist and Right Wing in his description of ruling elites. Also Newt’s defense does not specifically mention anything about Conservative-Christian Moral Values; however the implication is there with thoughts on Judicial reform and American education. One can see this implication in the last three points (of many) in a section entitled America is dramatically and frighteningly on the wrong track.

 

·       schools that no longer teach American history and generally fail to prepare young Americans for either citizenship or work (leading to a Nation at Risk, as the Reagan Administration described the effect of our schools 28 years ago and it is worse now);

 

·       increasingly radical judges who impose anti-American values on the American people in a repetition of the British tyrannical judges who were the second most frequently cited complaint of the American colonists;

 

·       a radical elite which has contempt for the American people, sympathy for America’s enemies, and overt hostility to American values and which dominates the universities, the news rooms, and increasingly the bureaucracies and the courts. (emphasis SlantRight)

 

 

Ergo if believe “American values” are the same as Conservative-Christian Values then we can assume Toffler’s futuristic influence on Newt is not a Left Wing brainwashing sycophancy. Does Newt believe the Third Wave Information Revolution is false?

 

I haven’t address this lately; however I am sure it will come somewhere around the primaries and/or the General Election if Newt makes it that far and on to victory. If I was to proffer an educated guess I would have to believe Newt still believes in a Third Wave transformation because of his past enthusiasm for Alvin Toffler’s works. The question that should be asked though: Does Newt’s thoughts on a Third Wave transformation the same as Alvin Toffler’s transforming vision?

 

The answer must be NO.

 

Newt’s 21st Century Contract with America is definitely conflicts with Toffler’s vision of a New World Order based on Leftist Humanism. So Newt’s vision for a Third Wave futurist transformation has to be based more on the Founding Father’s Constitutional vision combined with American Exceptionalism. The thought of American Exceptionalism contradicts New World Order Leftist Globalism. For an Information Revolution to exist combined with American Exceptionalism, a New World Order would look like a place that is friendly to American values. The New World Order would be a collection of sovereign nations watching over their own local interests while espousing legitimate representative government based on a free market in which globalism would translate into peaceful trade and mutual support rather than carving anti-social hegemonic empires based on top to bottom elitist rule.

 

I haven’t talked to Newt but I am guessing a man that has put forth the 21st Century Contract with America is not a disciple of Toffler’s Leftist transformation. Rather Newt is influenced that an Information Revolution will change the way we live and that American Exceptionalism must influence that change.

 

If Newt wins the nomination and wins the Presidency based on his 21st Century Contract with America and Newt begins to display Left Wing ideology, it may be the last time I vote for a Republican as a member of the Republican Party. This means at this time I am going to believe and trust Newt’s word more than Newt’s past. We’ll see how definite I will be in that trust as the GOP Convention draws near to place the mantle of nominee on a Republican candidate.

Newt Gingrich: Impeach judges … PT 5


Even back in 2009 Newt Gingrich understood the dangers of Islam and Left Wing Judges. In America Newt implies profiling Islam is appropriate in these days of the Global War on Terror. He also understands there is a Constitutional method to reign in Federal Judges and Justices if the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch team up to remove judgeships.

Frankly I Like Newt’s Thoughts on Illegal Aliens


Newt Gingrich

 

John R. Houk

© December 3, 2011

 

Newt Gingrich has consistently risen in the polls to the point now the MSM calls Gingrich’s position a surge. In military terms a “surge” defeats the enemy by connecting to the people and backing up the populace with a deadly force strategy. This could mean Newt is prepared to connect with Conservatives and attack the enemies of Conservatives.

 

Michele Bachmann has failed to connect with voters which I find a shame. Mitt Romney is a RINO and a Mormon (Romney’s religion is his free choice, but I am a Christian). Rick Perry demonstrated leaning toward Christian faith regardless of Separation of Church and State extremists of the Left; however his debate skills show an inability to think quickly and clearly on his feet. I was becoming wildly supportive of Herman Cain; however whether accusations of sexual impropriety is true or not, he will be spending the rest of his time campaigning on his character rather than what 9-9-9 and other economic plans can do for America. If Cain is innocent of the public accusations by the various women I pray the MSM does the right thing and expose the use of defamation as a political weapon to shoot someone out of a campaign race. If Cain is complicit in the accusations then God is good for shining light in the darkness of a man with moral problems that might have been elected President. I do not consider the other candidates running for the GOP nomination as viable and yes that includes Libertarian minded Ron Paul – wow is that guy out of sync with the meaning of American Exceptionalism and American National Interests or what?

 

Newt may be a – listen to me now and forget some of the choices I made in the past kind-of-guy. A lot of hard Conservatives are pretty unforgiving of past Newt decisions morally and politically while forgetting he was one of the architects for the Contract with America that offset Left Wing Clintonesque policies that President Barack Hussein Obama has rammed down America’s throat. Clinton’s Senate Dem majority gave him enough clout to battle the House GOP majority with a tangible amount of the Contract with America becoming unfulfilled. Newt has proposed a 21st century Contract with America as part of his GOP platform to gain the nomination.

 

The 21st Century Contract with America will be much larger than the original, and will consist of four parts.

 

1. A set of legislative proposals to shift America back to job creation, prosperity, freedom, and safety.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.   Repeal Obamacare and pass a replacement that saves lives and money by empowering patients and doctors, not bureaucrats and politicians.

 

2.   Return to robust job creation with a bold set of tax cuts and regulatory reforms that will free American entrepreneurs to invest and hire, as well as by reforming the Federal Reserve and creating a training requirement for extended federal unemployment benefits to encourage work and improve the quality of our workforce.

 

3.   Unleash America’s full energy production potential in oil, natural gas, coal, biofuels, wind, nuclear oil shale and more, creating jobs,  stimulating a sustainable manufacturing boom, lowering gasoline and other energy prices, increasing government revenues, and bolstering national security.

 

4.   Save Medicare and Social Security by giving Americans more choices and tools to live longer, healthier lives with greater financial independence.

 

5.   Balance the federal budget by freeing job-creators to grow the economy, reforming entitlements, and implementing waste cutting and productivity improvement systems such as Lean Six Sigma to eliminate waste and fraud. Pass a balanced budget amendment to keep it balanced.

 

6.   Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US.

 

7.   Revitalize our national security system to meet 21st century threats by restructuring and adequately funding our security agencies to function within a grand strategy for victory over those who seek to kill us or limit American power.

 

8.   Maximize the speed and impact of medical breakthroughs by removing unnecessary obstacles that block new treatments from reaching patients and emphasizing research spending towards urgent national priorities, like brain science with its impact on Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s, mental health and other conditions knowledge of the brain will help solve.

 

9.   Restore the proper role of the judicial branch by using the clearly delineated powers available to the president and Congress to correct, limit, or replace judges who violate the Constitution.

 

10. Enforce the Tenth Amendment by starting an orderly transfer of power and responsibility from the federal government back “to the states, respectively, or to the people,” as the Constitution requires. Over the next year, state and local officials and citizens will be asked to identify the areas which can be transferred back home.   

 

2. A “Day One Plan” of Executive Orders to be signed on inauguration day to immediately transform the way the executive branch works.

 

Released Executive Orders to be signed on Day One:

 

1. Eliminate the thirty-nine White House “Czar” positions created during the current administration. The president does not have the authority to appoint bureaucrats to power who are not accountable to the Congress.

 

2. “Mexico City Policy” of Respect for Life. Reauthorize President Ronald Reagan’s policy – also known as the “Mexico City Policy”— to stop tax payer dollars from being used to fund or promote abortions in foreign countries.

 

3. Restore conscience clause protections for Healthcare Workers. No American working in a medical environment should be forced to perform any procedure that he or she finds morally or ethically objectionable based on religious teaching. This protection should include, but not be limited to abortion. Existing conscience clause protections need to be strengthened.

 

4. Respect Each Sovereign Nation’s Choice of its Capital. Each sovereign nation, under international law and custom, may designate its own Capital. Accordingly, the U.S. State Department should be instructed to respect the choice of each sovereign nation and place the American embassy in their Capital.  (Israel is the only country the United States discriminates against in this regard. The people of Israel have designated Jerusalem as their capital. Yet the United States retains its embassy in Tel Aviv.)

 

5. End the Attorney General’s Assault on the States. Instruct the Attorney General to withdraw all immigration-related lawsuits against states immediately, including those pending in Arizona and South Carolina. The Obama Administration refuses to enforce federal immigration laws, and instead sues states who are merely trying to enforce the laws that the federal government neglects. The Gingrich Administration will secure the border by Jan. 1, 2014 by any means necessary.

 

6. The Keystone Pipeline

(Released: Nov. 17th, 2011)

Unleash American Energy by Approving the Keystone XL Pipeline. Instruct the State Department to approve a Presidential Permit immediately for the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that will send 700,000 barrels of oil a day from Great Plains and Southwestern states to Gulf Coast refineries lower staggering energy prices, and create up to 120,000 American jobs.

 

VIDEO: Newt Gingrich on Canadian Oil Sands Pipeline at the Republican Jewish Coalition Lunch in Sioux City

 

 

3. A training program for the transition teams and the appointees who will lead the shift back to Constitutional, limited government (coming soon);

 

4. A system of citizen involvement to help us sustain grassroots support for change and help implement the change through 2021 (coming soon).

 

Newt even provides a link for voters to share their ideas to add the 21st century Contract with America. I hope Newt has a dedicated staff for sorting through these because I would hate to imagine how many Obamunists email nut job ideas. If Newt was a centrist or a Center-Right guy, his campaign program shows a significant move more to the Right.

 

As to relevance to current affairs with Newt and illegal aliens residing in the nation, I understand shared some specific thoughts on illegal alien policy. Many Conservatives criticized Newt’s thoughts on matriculating long term illegal aliens into documented aliens with a path toward citizenship particularly if a generational family situation has evolved. So before we go to Newt’s relatively new plan for illegal immigrants/aliens looks examine what Newt previously has published according to his 21st century Contract with America.

 

Point One of the Contract subsection 6 states:

 

Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US.

 

The United States must control its border. It is a national security imperative.

 

Every nation has the right to control its border. Historically, every country that has been determined to control their border has been able to do so.

  

Controlling the border is a matter of resources and will.

 

 

This bill will waive every obstacle to controlling the border and would shift resources to achieve virtually 100% control by January 1, 2014. If necessary, we would move one-half of the 23,000 Washington-area Department of Homeland Security bureaucrats to the Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona borders.

 

At the same time we are controlling the border we should make it easier for honest people to visit America honestly.

 

Our current visa system is inefficient, expensive, and inhospitable and drives people away from visiting the United States. Americans and visitors deserve a system that works.

 

Americans will benefit from a fairer, more secure, more efficient system, which will ensure that foreign visitors, students, workers and job-creators alike provide as many positive benefits as possible to our economy and society.

 

We want legal visitors for our tourist attractions to increase the number of American jobs.

 

We want the best legal students in our universities and colleges, and then staying to create American jobs.

 

We want legal businessmen and businesswomen visiting the United States easily and comfortably so they can do more business in the United States and create more American jobs.

 

We want potential investors and entrepreneurs to visit America easily so they can create American jobs.

 

Finally, we want family members to find it easy to visit legally for holidays and family events to strengthen the human bonds that we Americans cherish.

 

At the same time, it is currently too difficult to deport criminals and gang members.

 

When someone is here illegally and is dangerous, there should be expedited procedures to remove them from the United States as rapidly as possible.

 

We can apply modern management techniques to create a more accurate, more secure, less expensive, and more hospitable visa system.

 

Combining border control with visa modernization makes it harder to be illegal and easier to be legal and that is a big step forward for America.

 

Point Five of a Gingrich Administration Executive Order is relevant to enforcing the rule of law against illegal immigrants/aliens.

 

5. End the Attorney General’s Assault on the States. Instruct the Attorney General to withdraw all immigration-related lawsuits against states immediately, including those pending in Arizona and South Carolina. The Obama Administration refuses to enforce federal immigration laws, and instead sues states who are merely trying to enforce the laws that the federal government neglects. The Gingrich Administration will secure the border by Jan. 1, 2014 by any means necessary.

 

At this point demonstrates as President he will initiate stringent border control along Mexico while hinting at some sort of examination to divide long term hard working illegal aliens from illegal alien committers of violent or drug crimes. In Gingrich’s recent debate he gets a bit more specific about illegal aliens that show a bit of compassion that Conservatives are questioning and Leftists are mistrusting. Andrea Tantaros wrote an article about Newt on Thursday. Here is a quote:

 

Immigration has always been a hot-button issue for both sides of the aisle, and in the 2012 presidential election, things are not going to be different. That’s why former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is making headlines for advocating for a more “humane” approach for dealing with the roughly 11 million illegal aliens in this country.

 

Gingrich, who is rising in most polls, endorsed a version of amnesty that would grant long-term undocumented aliens a “red card” visa, allowing them to gain legal status without earning U.S. citizenship.

 

“If you’ve been here 25 years and you got three kids and two grandkids, you’ve been paying taxes and obeying the law, you belong to a local church, I don’t think we’re going to separate you from your family, uproot you forcefully and kick you out,” he argued.

 

“I don’t see how the party that says it’s the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families that have been here a quarter century.”

 

He also backed certain provisions of the DREAM Act, which would award a path to citizenship for young illegal immigrants who serve our country in the armed forces or attend college and have a spotless background.

 

I am like most Conservatives when images like this come to mind

 

Low income American citizens have to jump through hoops of paper work to get food stamps and often discover they make a few thousand more a year that disqualifies the American citizen from food stamps. A Spanish only-speaking illegal alien applies for food stamps without paperwork and gets food stamps.

 

An illegal alien is involved in a car accident and is at fault and without insurance. The undocumented illegal will not be ticketed and the victim will have to use her insurance to pay for repairs.

 

An illegal alien is pulled over for driving under the influence and has no driver’s license. Chances are the illegal alien will be let go and if he is arrested the few days he spends in jail are meaningless because what the heck – the illegal alien just keeps drinking and driving.

 

Illegal aliens have undocumented children residing with them in America. These children are non-citizens yet are afforded the American citizen right to attend public school and worse will get a free breakfast and a free lunch. The low income American citizen that does not qualify for a free lunch will have to pay for a school lunch. Further the illegal alien children have medical issues and the taxpayers pick up the tab. And I am not just talking about visits to the Emergency Room. Undocumented illegal aliens get regular doctor appointments to maintain their health. American citizen children without insurance do not get regular doctor visits because it cost money even with insurance. If an American citizen goes to an Emergency Room as the only access for a medical emergency and has no insurance, the American citizen will receive a hefty bill in the mail followed by debt collection calls because the medical was not affordable. Then there are American citizens that are on Medicare and pay for their supplement insurance to get a better deal than just Medicare and to get their meds, yet an undocumented illegal alien will get medical care and meds scot free because the government and the medical professionals know they won’t get paid.

 

Now this is just a small example of what irks me about illegal aliens. I am sure someone could tell loads of more stories how there is no justice for American citizens vis-a-vis illegal aliens. This is not mentioning crimes of drugs, gangs, theft, rape and so on.

 

Then there is the side of the coin that Newt is probably thinking of. I worked many years in the restaurant industry and when I left my small home town for the big city a significant amount of the restaurant staff were of Latin American origin (and not necessarily all Mexican). I have to tell ya most of these guys were undocumented. And I have to tell ya 99% of these guys were hard working. In fact they saved or sent portions of their pay check to Mexico. Sometimes they would disappear for awhile and visit family back in Mexico and come back to work for what we would call peanuts but their families back in Mexico would a good provision.

 

I am with Newt on immigration. It should become easier for Mexicans to enter legally to work a job and thus be taxed thus making them taxpayers. At the same time I believe the border with Mexico should become an Iron Curtain because of the ruthless reign of drug cartels just south of border. The drug cartel pestilence in Mexico is spilling into America’s border States like Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California (though I get the impression Californians have their heads in the sand when it comes to drug cartel violence).

 

Be sure to read the entire Tantaros article about Newt Gingrich’s stand on illegal aliens. I enjoyed I think you will as well.

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

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 Newt.org. 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.”

LETS ROLL!!!

 

I don’t see this as a Democrat or Republican issue, but as a national security survival issue!

 

If you only check one email, I beg you to take the time to watch this very sobering, frightening video. Newt Gingrich, a history professor, is the speaker. Please listen to and watch this very sincere man. You might gain an insight into as to why our Country is in such a terrible mess. Folks, we are all in this together. It’s worth a listen; the message is sobering but well put and true. This is short, but a MUST listen.

 

NEWT WILL PROSECUTE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD GROUPS!

I’m not really a Newt fan; however the rhetoric about viewing Muslim Brotherhood American affiliates in a hostile manner works for me.

NEWT WILL PROSECUTE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD GROUPS!

ATTENTION ALL PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES NEWT will prosecute “STEALTH” MUSLIM TERRORISTS.

 

WILL YOU?

 

National security experts agree that the next President of the United States must take seriously the internal threat of Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT.

 

Whereas as the current Administration has failed to effectively name the enemy and actually joined in “partnership” with organizations intent on destroying America, the next Administration must investigate and prosecute those Muslim leaders and organizations who have subversive goals.

 

In this 2 minute video, Speaker Gingrich states clearly and unequivocally what the next leader of the free world must do to combat Islamic terrorism in America.

 

We believe that on the issue of Muslim terrorism in America, Candidate Gingrich has set the bar for all other Presidential candidates to meet, or exceed.
