My Dad, the world’s staunchest Republican, sent me this video:
The Real Newt Gingrich

There’s so much information in that video I can’t even pick a favorite excerpt to post here.

MarcoPolo – Thank you and your father for bringing “The Real Newt Gingrich” to our attention. It’s a powerful 1/2 hr with very important information. (Also loved the Dallas Tea Party sign!)

You’re welcome. I hesitated because the JBS has such a reputation, but in another open thread another poster here proved me pretty wrong about my pre-conceived notions about that organization too. It’s amazing just how poisoned our information wells are.

My family isn’t involved, in fact I’d be surprised if my Dad knows who they are. He’s just a guy that worked blue collar for a living until he retired. Watches a little tv, listens to a little talk radio…votes the party line. He would rather talk football policy than fiscal policy.

So coming from him this was a sign to me that times are changing and our messages really are getting through to the very audience we’re trying to reach.

I felt this was worth repeating. I watched the video and learned things about Newt that I had never known before.

Newt had already lost me with his support of Dede Scozzafava, but that video gives me even more reasons not to trust Newt.

UPDATE:

…kudos to Newt…  He actually responded substantively to Miller’s polite question…But Newt’s still wrong.  First, the NRCC and the RNC have the duty to elect endorsed Republican candidates, so one cannot blame them for following the lead of local party officials — but that’s not Newt’s role unless he chooses it for himself.  He has held himself up as a leader of conservatives more than the Republican Party… Scozzafava did not get the endorsement through a convention process, after all, but in a closed-room meeting of sorts with the party leaders of the eleven counties in that district.  I’m also not sure Newt has all of those policy positions correct, and he fails to mention that Scozzafava backs Card Check, which dumps the secret ballot in organizing elections and leaves working people at the tender mercies of union bosses, as well as imposing federal control over compensation for all American industries through its mandatory arbitration clause.  That’s hardly conservative.Besides, this is a special election, and the same seat comes up again next year.  If Scozzafava wins it, it will make it more difficult for a fiscal conservative to dislodge her in the 2010 primary.  If the Democrat wins it, Pelosi wins one more vote for a year in a chamber which already gives her a 70-seat majority, and Hoffman can run as the truly Republican candidate in 2010.

The rising star of Sarah Palin passes over the melancholy ruins of Newt Gingrich, who spent the last of his credibility endorsing Scozzafava. The Republican Party of Gingrich dies, unloved and irrelevant. Something else is replacing it.

    Gawrsh! I’m flattered!

  2. MarcoPolo,

    Thank you for that link. I’m embarassed to admit that up until his recent support of Scozzafava over Hoffman, I actually trusted Newt. He may pretend to stand for the same things our Founding Fathers stood for, but it has become clear that he really doesn’t. I didn’t realize, until that video, that Gingrich is a “Rockefeller Republican” and CFR member.

    Also, in terms of the JBS, everything I’ve seen directly from them looks to be “on target”. They’ve been smeared as racists in the past, but now everyone who opposes Obama’s Marxist agenda is smeared as a racist, so people aren’t fooled by that tactic anymore. I’m not a JBS member, but it looks like they understood the Communist presence and agenda in America long before I did.

    And it’s also worth noting that Congressman Larry McDonald, mentioned at length in that video and a staunch anti-Communist, was the only sitting member of Congress killed by the Soviet Union during the Cold War. It’s possible that the only reason Korean Air Flight 007 was shot by Soviet interceptors was to get Congressman McDonald.

    I also watched the video. Wow.

    I told my Mister that he needs to watch it as he’s been fooled by that puss as have been so many others. How deep is this cancer anyway?

    It’s only been since the internet has become a (comfortable) tool of the middle aged persons, who have become more involved with politics, that we have found so much that has previously been hidden in written records (which are obscure to the everyday joe). I mean-we never would have known where to look, or why, or how! Now we google, and wham, right between the eyes!

  4. Sally HIll says:

    Didn’t watch the video – didn’t need to. I’ve never trusted Newt – there is just something about him that has never rang true, just had a bad feeling – like he is saying one thing, but thinks and does another. I put him right in the same category as Obama – comes off as something other than they really are.

  5. Sally,
    I know how you feel, as I did have a little bit of that same feeling, that something wasn’t quite right, but I used to give him the benefit of the doubt. No longer.

    Newt’s support of Scozzafava over Hoffman, plus the details in that video (and the links below) opened my eyes to the truth: Newt is indeed a “Rockefeller Republican”, not a “Goldwater Republican”.

    I never knew that Newt even worked for Nelson A. Rockefeller’s presidential campaign in 1968!

  6. Ladysforest says:

    Redpill,

    Did you read today where Newt said he is considering running for President?

    What a surprise.

  7. I hadn’t heard that, but no, it doesn’t surprise me.

  8. Trevor Hilton says:

    Whatever happened to the Newt Gingrich who wrote the Contract With America?
    We need him back.

  9. As much as Newt may want to pretend that he is like Ronald Reagan, that is patently deceptive.

    Ronald Reagan was a Goldwater Conservative with a Democrat-controlled Congress.

    Newt is no Goldwater Conservative. Just the opposite. He is a Rockefeller Republican. While Reagan campaigned for Goldwater in 1964, Newt campaigned for Nelson Rockefeller’s Presidential campaign in 1968!

  10. Did Gingrich tell the truth about backing Goldwater?

  11. I saw this in the comments of that HotAir post:

    The question is – what is he really?
