The first question at Thursday night's debate in South Carolina went to Newt Gingrich, giving him an opportunity to denounce a "vicious" news media that is "protecting Barack Obama by attacking Republicans."

I’m so frustrated with the way the campaigns are being run, and with all these debates, etc... I have really been trying to tune it all out.

Someone please help me understand where these guys stand.

We’ve got a guy who is a little brash and isn’t ashamed to say what’s on his mind = Gingrich
And a guy who is embarrassed that he makes a lot of money = Romney
And what does Santorum stand for again?

“Obama: ‘If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun”- Obama 2008.

The only candidate that realizes how tough this election is going to be is Newt. And, he’s tired of their CRAP!!!

I'm glad Newt called them out. The press has crawled on hands and knees looking for a rock in Texas, sat on interviews with exes until 48 hours before the election, obtained college transcripts, found people who knew these people in college, past business partners, but can't find a single person who went to school with Obama, can't find his transcripts, can't find anybody he's dated, and can't find anything he's written on the Harvard Law Review.

I guess I should rephrase that. They haven't even tried to look for those things.

After 3 years of this guy as president and I still i say “who is this guy” no real history at all just a book. Nobody in the media to this day checking out his background but just protecting from any competition.

The Media is in Bracko Bama’s hip pocket.

Newt was 100% right when he said they were protecting Obama by bad mouthing Republicans.

Where are the investigators when it comes to finding out about Obama’s past. What are they afraid of there?

To me, this is one question that needs to be asked before answering any "vetting" questions on our guys.

It needs to be hammered home that the public should not trust the media to give them the truth about democRats.

Has anyone ever considered that the press. or individuals in the press, might be being blackmailed into silence?

How? I don’t know, but every one probably has something to hide, or something they don’t want known, or some other vested interest that could be used against them.

Actually much more simple than that.

They, the press, are 90% Communists and socialists, convinced that the only reason socialism did not work anywhere else on this planet is because there was not enough of other people's money.

In this country, the richest in the world, surely here socialism will prosper (they are convinced).

Therefore, they will spend their last drop of ink and last dying breath holding up their liberal candidates, while using every tactic, legit and otherwise, make up stories if they can't find any, to ridicule, thwart, block and otherwise prevent conservatives from gaining a seat in the say so.

It is what they do. Expect it, plan on it, and realize it, anytime you tune in or pick up a liberal rag.

They ARE ther enemy, not any one particular pol.

He is tapping into the pend up rage that most Americans have toward the “we tell you what to believe” media. He has zinged them in several debates and I don’t think he will stop.

The other candidates have scared away from confronting the media directly. They think the media will be their friends... just like Juan McCain.

The leftist media will kick any conservative in the nuts if given the chance. We don’t need a candidate who tries to get them to kick him in the nuts just a little bit lighter.

We need a candidate who kicks back.

Another 1.2 TRILLION dollars further in debt, record unemployment, record numbers on food stamps, record gasoline prices, record heating oil prices, and the liberal media makes this THE question of the day?

Proof positive that they are covering Idi Obama's butt not only by attacking Republicans, but by promoting Romney as "the only one who can defeat Obama" among the candidates.

Romney is nothing more than Dole and McCain.

And while he is not handicapped, he is surely the lamest candidate to throw against Idi Obama.

Newt (originally my fifth choice) may be a gift to us that we might prevail despite his baggage and some severe departures from conservatism.

He can beat the underlying deadly philosophy AND agenda of the left and expose their agents unmercifully better than almost anyone.

We need to defeat the enemy and not in the current way of not winning wars like we did in WWII. Reagan The Great Communicator was able to go around or over the enemy and set them back by 30 years, but we need someone to defeat them definitively!

But first we need to identify the WHOLE enemy and where it's coming from. We are fighting a huge army of collectivists.

They range from communists to fascists to oligarchists that we used to call the New World Order. Basically you can be safe in referring to them as Progressives because they ALL want to progress to a state where there are a few self-appointed elites ruling over the vast mass of peons.

Whatever you call them they are solidly united against individual liberty and capitalism--real capitalism, not crony capitalism. They must destroy the middle class and are doing a pretty good job of it now.

The enemy in the overt power structure is every corrupt member of our elected or appointed officials in governments from fedgov to the states all the way down to school boards.

Both parties contribute to this pool. There used to be some Dem politicians who, even if corrupt to some degree, still had the good of the country at heart. No longer. There are still some Republican politicians who do.

The second and equally effective enemy is our media. The corrupt politicians could not have pulled off our current level of destruction without them. We have been successful in replacing specific people in the power structure, but have not been successful against the evil structure itself.

What we have left is talk radio (under attack), the internet (under attack), some foreign news outlets that report the truth about what's happening in our country even while they work for "progress" in their own countries and, with lessening effectiveness FNC.

Progressives have infiltrated every corner of our lives: teachers unions have damaged (or destroyed) our schools; public unions have turned to outright thuggery against our local governments and bear an unjustified amount of power over fedgov; even many of our churches have been infiltrated.

Two decades ago I attended a baptism where the priest only mentioned Christ when he had to in the ritual. His preaching part of the ceremony included several references to Mother Earth. At least he didn't say Gaia. If your priest/minister talks about "social justice," you've got one in your church.

If you doubt this intentional infiltration, Google Yuri Bezmenov and hear what this defector from the Soviet Union to Canada warned us about over thirty years ago.

It used to be his job to infiltrate countries and there was a carefully designed four step procedure. 1) Demoralization, 2) Destabilization, 3) Crisis and 4) Normalization.

The first two generally took decades and have been pretty much achieved. Crisis could happen in weeks. Normalization was when the tanks rolled in. Reagan defeated the Soviet Union, but the people behind this system were not restricted to the USSR. They are patient and persistent. They don't give up. It's a religion to them and they are now established in pretty much all countries.

I think most people here, unlike in the general population understand that the tanks that roll in need not be USSR. They could be our own or the UN saving us from the chaos of out of control "protesters"... Or whatever is convenient. The media will cover and many will be grateful to our "saviors".

Can Newt all on his own defeat the whole apparatus? Even if he defeats by exposure the enemedia, we will have a chance. Their near choke hold on what we know and believe is getting cracks, but we (and he) will have to push through to where the ignorant (not necessarily stupid) population will be exposed to the truth and hear the counter to Progressive propaganda.

State and local governments are beginning to defang union thuggery with varying success. Some of it is going to be up to each of us, exposing it to friends as it appears in our schools or churches.

John King didn’t have any of these three before the debate even began. He’s a milquetoast puss-boy, tyical left wing-diseased elitist. They’ve heard and re-told the lies so often they believe them as truth. Newt EVISCERATED the lib media last night. I hope he keeps it up. This election needs to be a back alley, no holds barred death match in order to save this country from the stain and his minions. Too much damage has already been done...

Gingrich: "I'm tired of the Elite Media Protecting Barack Obama by Attacking Republicans....."

One of the most memorable responses in political history----equal to Ronald Reagan's response when the media tried to nail him aboiut his age:

Reagan responded: "I will not exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience."

Even Mondale laughed uproariously.

Another great Newt response——when King tried to nail him on the anti-pirating SOPA.

Newt parried with: “You’re asking a conservative about the economic interests of Hollywood?

That mention of Hollywood reminds me of a great Hollywood story:

An actor received a frantic call——he had to come home immediately b/c of a terrible tragedy.

Tha actor arrived home and was told the bad news-—his agent had raped his wife AND burned his house to the groound.

Hearing the news, the actor was in disbelief: “You mean my to tell me my agent actually came to my house.”

Newt absolutely crushed King and CNN last night. This is what seperates him from the tepid GOP mold that’s afraid to offend. Newt is a street fighting brawler. There Will Be Blood. The media better start getting ready to be spanked regularly under a Gingrich administration.

Yes that was a good poke in the eye Newt gave. But he could have went a tad further using an example of that protection. And all Newt would have had to say was:

'Like protecting Obama and Eric Holder by not reporting on project Gunwalker (Fast & Furious)
Most folks don't know about that and Google would have been soon buzzing with searches.
