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.

Of course you can also tell that the Bloomberg anchors are giddy to go after Gingrich as from their point of view it helps their industry-man Romney.

Ron Paul is the only Presidential Candidate (including Lie'in Barack Obama) who has the least bit of integrity and dignity.  The other guys have no respect for themselves and are either pawns or whores.

Please, don't exclude the likelihood that they are in fact both.

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.

Fuck Ron Paul.

Newt for POTUS 2012.

“New Year's Eve, without scrutiny, President Obama codified his ability to detain and imprison American citizens indefinitely, without trial. My acquaintances decry the president for this, yet ignore the fact that the bill received near-unanimous support from Republican legislators. Every GOP presidential candidate -- with the exception of Ron Paul -- has expressed support for overreaching executive power.” – John DeFeo in Ron Paul: The Strongest Man in the World? 01/17/12 (TheStreet)

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.

Points taken, but before you get 100% overboard.Try watching the Documentary about her, call  "The Undefeated".

It will show you the woman in her domain,her real beliefs,and what she lives for and she has a bigger set, than anyone running for the New POTUS slot,(save Paul) the details, history, and world events can always be handed off to a surrogate to fill you in on......................

Honesty, and integrity, and love of country, and a solid belief in this countries Founders, and what its Documents mean,and is prepared to RUN the place by them.

Only one other on the stage is as passionate about doing the right thing, and living under the Constitution,and cleaning up this shit hole.

Obama knew nothing when he went in(still doesn't), the dumb ass thought we had 57 states.(confused w/ his relatives,in Sandamania).

He is a fascist, and a bucket mouth liar.

He was going to KILL the Patriot Act IF elected,HE LIED.

He was going to VETO NADD HE LIED, Also Americans can now lose their Citizenship by just a WORD, and Thank him for that.

HE has made us slaves and ignores all aspects of what this country was founded on..............he like Muuucheeel HATE ths country.

Give me a real PATRIOT any day, that is intelligent and can learn,will fight to the end for the PEOPLE,and the country, and is fearless,over a thug,traitor,and a lifetime politcal hack/whore.

Well that is where you and i differ.

You see i believe a "patriot" is a starting point not an ending point.

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!”
