Gingrich Hypocrisy Full Frontal

Tyler Durden's picture




 

If anyone feels like voting for Newt Gingrich after watching this interview, we only have one question: do whips, chains, and a skin-tight leather outfit await the return from the voting station? Bloomberg's Erik Schatzker reports on his interview with Paul Levy, managing partner at JLL Partners Inc., about a payment made to Newt Gingrich for a speech that "praised" private equity at a JLL annual
meeting two years ago.

Yup, makes sense to me.  Whack all the other candidates one by one, leave Willard as the standard bearer...with or without a Paul 3rd party run Obama wins again...and we can take that last step that sends us into the abyss.

I wonder if it is the wife (first?) he asked for a divorce while she was getting cancer treatment?

I hope she took him for everything he was worth and then some.

Or the wife (second?) he was cheating on with his "staffer" (now third wife) while wailing on Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky episode?

I know she's got a lot to talk about.

I'm just amazed that there's three women out there who would tolerate that prick at all.

Nothing can destroy Newt's candidacy.

Its all part of his strategy. Just be unapologetic about your scumbagishness then make the rest of the shit up. If you flip-flop so obviously, sheeple think its so obliviously flip-flopping that it can't be flip-flopping.

Here is an example: 'I fail to see the relevance in discussing my serving divorce papers on my dying cancer stricken fat old wife. She simply wasn't First Lady material and was interfering with one of my past times, namely having sex with farm animals while minor children watch. Look, this election is about having a conversation with the American People about the issues that matter. We need to cut the deficit, while increasing defense spending by lowering taxes. The people in this room deserve a candidate who is a true Reagan conservative whose principles will never waiver who can also work in a bi-partisan way to compromise those unwavering principles in the interest of getting America working again.

See? This is genius. We are watching a master at work.

And that he's a Christian Reconstructionist nutball whose supporters want to codify Old Testament Law on the state level once their chosen candidate is in office.  Death for gays, adulterers and delinquent children.

>>>At the John Birch Society 50th anniversary gala, Ron Paul spoke to another favorite theme of the Reconstructionists and others in the religious right: that of the "remnant" left behind after evil has swept the land. (Gary North's publication is called The Remnant Review.) In a dispatch on Paul's keynote address, The New American, the publication of the John Birch Society, explained, "He claimed that the important role the JBS has played was to nurture that remnant and added, 'The remnant holds the truth together, both the religious truth and the political truth.'"<<<

  That's a direct quote.  He speaks their language.  He is one of them. Ron Paul's Reconstructionist religious remnant holds the "political truth" together?  The Birchers?  What crap. I like my government secular and want to keep it that way.

It's easy to write speeches as long as you know the rules:

1) Speak only in platitudes, never specifics.
2) Facts don't matter. The media might grade you after the fact but the sheeple have switched over to re-runs of 'How I Met Your Mother' by the time they do. That's why its important to obey rule 1.
3) It's important to support and oppose every side of every major issue, but never so vehemently that your support or opposition ends up in a sound bite used in ads purchased by opponent super pacs.

This is why Ron Paul is unelectable. Facts, specifics and ideological consistency will get you killed in this business.

Marianne Gingrich. Mistress Number One, with whom Newt cheated on his first wife.

Mistress One became Wife Two...but was promptly replaced by Mistress Two, who then went on to become Wife Three ( Callista Gingrich ).

Turnaround is fair play, Marianne. "You pays your money, you takes your chances." That said, isn't this particular dish of revenge being served rather a bit too cold ? A bit obvious, is it not, so close to the South Carolina primary ? These Beltway types. Carrion-feeders. Thoroughly repellent.

I am sure he pays more than Buffett.  But why the Caymans?  Does he want it out of the USA so the elites do not seize his money like the rest of us saps?   Newt and Romney are RINOs and they are awful.  Santorum is light years better and Newt and Romney are light years better than the muslim.

Why does Romney have his money in the Caymans? Because that is where the hedgefunds and other pseudo-intelligent investment vehicles are headquartered.

Why do hedge funds set up shop in the Caymans? Because foreign investors in places like Singapore, Australia, and South America shouldn't have to be double taxed and tortured by both their domestic tax entity and the fucktards at the IRS.

Quite simple really. He isn't dodging taxes, it is the foreign investors that are dodging the idiocy of the IRS. We have 3 foreign partners in our firm that has taken over a year to get an ITIN from those clowns. The second partner got his ITIN in the mail the day after the IRS told him on the phone that they still hadn't received his third application documents. The third guy is still waiting for them to pull their collective IRS head out and he sent his 3rd app set in over a month before the second guy.

WTF? Like it is some great political reward to get lucky and find a tolerable wife the first time around.

Is that the primary basis you want to choose a commander in chief? Because a punk was married only once? At best it demonstrates luck or pragmatism on the love front, at worst, an ineptitude to activate the escape pods.

Since when do personal relationships with women dictate the success of a man politically or in business?

>>>Since when do personal relationships with women dictate the success of a man politically or in business?<<<

Maybe when you don't ask them for a divorce while undergoing cancer treatment and cheat on them demonstrating what an intolerable prick you really are...and then giving them the ammo to kill your candidacy...you mean those personal relationships?

Newt's only problem was that he hasn't been able to find a wife stupid enough to tolerate his revolting personality...well, maybe wife #3...that remains to be seen.  I think he is just too old and fat to be attractive enough to the kind of slim, young attractive types he uses as replacements.

Among Newt's many "attractive" qualities is his stance on marijuana. Once again a hypacrite, though he smoked marijuana in his "youth" ie up to and including when he was a college professor, he now thinks there should be a death penalty for anyone smuggling 2 ounces or more of marijuana into the country.

"Newt Gingrich, as Speaker of the House introduced a bill called the “Drug Importer Death Penalty Act of 1996“.  It would have enacted a death penalty for anyone caught smuggling two or more ounces of marijuana into the United States.  Yes, two ounces, not the 67 tons you currently need to qualify for the death penalty**.

I like enough to vote for him and realize he won't be able to change everything he'd like to but I'm sure he will be a better president than anybody we've had for the last 40 years at least.

Make no mistake, Clinton evolved from a liberal to a centrist pandering liberal  because of Newt's campaign and Contract With America. If it is still possible to save this wreck of a nation, Gingrich is better suited to it than Romney and may be up to the task.

Remember.. Gingrich was conservative when conservative wasn't cool anywhere and he comes from Georgia.

Romney has a hard time acting conservative and comes from Massachussets.

Winning ticket: Gringrich/Paul.

Wet dream: Gringrich/Paul wins 2012 with Republicans taking both houses.. Paul resigns as VP.. Gringrich nominates and gets compelling new VP (with eye on 2016 or 2020). Gingrich nominates and Congress approves Ron Paul for Secretary of the Treasury. SEC/CFTC housecleaning and End the Fed Jihad begins.

It'll never happen but I can dream.

The two-party system is nearing its end in America…as a Tea Party Revolution tries to pick between a former governor of the most liberal state in the nation and a disgraced political insider whose own party threw him out after his deals of blackmail and duplicity (Romney versus Gingrich).  And this winner will take on the least popular president in years at a moment when a leader is needed to save a nation collapsing economically and morally.

The two-party system is no longer able to produce candidates the majority of the people want for their representatives. A two-party system that produces 1) a socialist Kenyan, Obama, and 2) a warmonger banker, Romney, is at the end of its usefulness. In short, both parties, Democrat and Republican, are producing Establishment puppets that have no intention of serving the people.

The way to describe these political “choices” of the two parties is that they are people who love their careers more than their country.  The country is in desperate need of honest men such as Ron Paul who tell the truth and can respond with solutions that will return a fallen and desperate America to the moral and economic system that made her the most productive nation in the history of the world.

Ron Paul is the only candidate for president who cherishes and understands that system; yet, the Republican Party has deliberately honed down its primary voters to a  trustworthy 27 percent and ostracized citizens who have refused to back men such as John McCain and George Bush, making this year’s primary a litmus test for the nominee to be a War Party, anti-Islam, pro-Israel Zionist and a conservative pretender on social and economic issues.

I thought what you were saying was brillant until you called Obama a socialist. Obama is not a socialist. Obama is a fascist, as are all the other presidents before him, maybe back to Carter. If you can't see the difference between socialism and fascism, then we got a problem Houston! Fascism is a merger of state and big corporations. This is what we got.

Perhaps you might say America has a problem with both.  Even Nobel prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, a socialist, calls our system "socialism for the rich".

I believe Wikipedia’s introduction to Ludwig von Hayek’s on-going best seller to be one of the best interpretations on the issue:The Road to Serfdom is a book written by the Austrian-born economist and philosopher Friedrich von Hayek (1899–1992) between 1940–1943, in which he ‘warned of the danger of tyranny that inevitably results from government control of economic decision-making through central planning,' and in which he argues that the abandonment of individualism, classical liberalism, and freedom inevitably leads to socialist or fascist oppression and tyranny and the serfdom of the individual. 

“Significantly, Hayek challenged the general view among British academics that fascism was a capitalist reaction against socialism, instead arguing that fascism and socialism had common roots in central economic planning and the power of the state over the individual.”

And it is imperative to address those college professors who acclaim socialism as a better system and the cure-all for everything from inflation to price-gouging; tens of thousands of students each year study texts that argue the advantages of socialism over capitalism. In an opinion survey by National Review in the 70s, almost half of the students in 10 "representative" universities believed all basic industries should be socialized. Three out of four thought Marxists should be allowed to teach citizenship in public high schools.

Wasn't it socialism Michelle Obama avowed when she said she wanted a "bigger piece of the pie"?

In short, our fascist elites favor socialism for the masses, as did Keynes; it is the route by which their dream of one-world control, through economic subjugation, is being built.  Socialism – simply economic control of the people by government - is their companion economic system.

The reason I believe the size of Newt Gingrich's head is physically so very large is that it has to be, in order to hold that gigantic package of brains.

Although, by far the best thing Newt has going for him is that he is NOT Ron Paul.

I laughed my ass off as Paul was roundly booed on the debate stage the other night in Myrtle Beach. What a fucking embarrassment. The senile idiot isn't capable of making a statement without hideously fucking it up. All the REPUBLICAN candidates nuked that Libertarian fool on foreign policy as Savior Ron tried to make the case that a Chinese dissident was the same as Osama Bin Laden. What a deluded fool. Of course he was loudly and deservedly booed.

Stay tuned tomorrow night, as Newt once again humiliates that shriveled bag of senile dogshit. I can't wait to watch Paul fumble around again and squeal his incoherent nonsense about how the Golden Rule should apply to foreign policy. Fucking incredible.

EX-WIFE OF 18 YEARS: NEWT NOT FIT TO BE PRESIDENT...
DURING LEWINSKY,
CLINTON WARNED CHEATING NEWT 'YOU'RE ALOT LIKE ME
'... 

Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband's career with a single
interview. Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT
has learned.

She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours.

Her explosive revelations are set to rock the campaign.

But now
a "civil war" has erupted inside of the network, an insider claims, on exactly
when the confession will air!

ABCNEWS suits determined it would be
"unethical" to run the Marianne Gingrich interview so close to the South
Carolina Primary, a curious decision, one insider argued, since the network has
aggressively been reporting on other candidates.

A decision was
tentatively made to air the interview next Monday, after all votes have been
counted.

Gingrich canceled a press conference on Wednesday to deal with
the matter.

"He believes that what he says in public and how he lives
don't have to be connected," Marianne Gingrich, Newt's wife of 18 years,
explained to ESQUIRE last year. "When you try and change your history too much,
and try and recolor it because you don't like the way it was or you want it to
be different to prove something new ... you lose touch with who you really
are... There's a vacancy, kind of scary, isn't it."

Newt has also promised that Sarah Palin will play a "major role" in his adminstration.

Newt Gingrich seems poised to inject some 2008 flavor into his 2012 presidential campaign.

In a CNN interview set to air on Wednesday, the former House speaker is prepared to ask Sarah Palin "to play a major role" in his administration, a producer from "The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer" tweeted.

Yes Sarah ..."lets celebrate ignorance" Palin.

From a documentary that is set to air on HBO in March based on the 2008 election. The movie, like the book, is not speculative or based on hearsay. Much of it is based on an account of the McCain campaign by Steve Schmidt, a Republican Party campaign strategist:

It is made crystal clear that Palin didn’t really understand why there was a North Korea and a South Korea. She clearly thought that Saddam Hussein was behind the 9/11 attacks. She needed to have Germany’s role in the Second World War explained to her. She thought “the Fed” referred to the federal government, not the Federal Reserve. The Governor of Alaska was as ignorant of the world as a four-year-old. Except of course, voters were being asked to put this ludicrously uninformed person, in the proverbial phrase, “a heartbeat away from the presidency.”

Sarah Palin is NOT qualified to have imput into public policy AT THE PTA level. But in a Gingrich adminstration she will have a prominent position.

The only saving grace in this stupidity is there is a greater chance that JFK jr. and i will have a date on Friday night than there is of Gingrich adminstration.

How one gets to their 40's, and becomes Governor of Alaska without knowing what Germany's role in WW2 was, is sheer ignorance. Ones understanding of the current EU crisis would shall we say be fairly incomplete if one did not have a basic understanding of European History. Particularily Germany's roll in WW1 and WW2.If you want to celebrate fools because they are patriots that is your right. 

By the way "The Undefeated" was produced by some X- Goldman Sachs i-banker. Who also counts among his productions a documentary on the financial crisis called "Generation Zero". He thesis for that fine production was that the financial crisis was not caused by Banks like Goldman, but by the liberal policies.

Based on his 'body of work" one could assume that he has a less than objective agenda to push.

The Gingrich Doctrine: ‘Kill Them!’ |Antiwar.com (excerpts)

 By Justin Raimondo On January 17, 2012

His hands on his ample hips, Newt Gingrich looked like Mussolini up there on the stage at the GOP presidential debate as he bellowed “everybody knows” the Pakistanis were hiding Osama bin Laden in plain sight, “a mile from a Pakistani military academy.” Ron Paul, who knows more about monetary policy than the intricacies of the US-Pakistani relationship, stood there looking appalled as Gingrich let loose with his war cry: “Kill them!” The yahoos went wild with joy. The Newtster was reacting to Paul’s point about respecting Pakistani sovereignty – and the dangers of allowing such cross-border raids to become routine. After all, that could work both ways, as Paul tried – in vain – to point out.

The reality, though, is that the Pakistanis in all likelihood did know about the raid well in advance, and it is just as likely they had a hand in the entire operation from the start. As the Guardian reported at the time…

Ignorance of such abstruse topics is not a moral failing – unless, that is, one is charged with making life-and-death decisions requiring this kind of specialized knowledge. In that case, it is highly doubtful anyone not immersed in the country one is concerned with could have sufficient understanding to even attempt to make such a decision. Friedrich Hayek, the free market economist, understood that central planning by governments is impossible because the planners lack sufficient knowledge of the many factors taken into account by the market: the same is true when it comes to planning the fate of nations overseas – only more so. That conservatives fail to understand this simple fact is a tribute to their thickheadedness. No matter how many times that simple principle is demonstrated in real life – Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. – the lesson forever eludes them, transfixed as they are by demagogues of Gingrich’s ilk urging them to “Kill! Kill!”
