No Newt- New Year Dragon of 2012- Gingrich, or Axed Judiciary as Aquinos Philippines by John P. Roco Sunday, 18 December 2011 19:51 Hawaii Standard Time
December 12, 2012- Supreme Court Chief justice of the Philippines Renato Corona impeached at the bequest of President Aquino backers of the House of Representatives for eight Articles, the first saying: he has consistently sided with the (arroyo) administration in politically-significant cases (Article I also contests- as Aquino does- the constitutionality of the midnight appointment of Corona by then President Arroyo on May 12, 2010).
Three days later:
December 15, 2012- Newt Gingrichs statements of the judiciary: the courts have become grotesquely dictatorial, far too powerful, and I think arrogant in their misreading of the American people. . . I WOULD JUST like Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, and FDR, I would be prepared to take on the judiciary if in fact it did not restrict itself in what it was doing . . . Id ask first of all have they studied Jefferson who in 1802 abolished 18 out of 35 federal judges. . .
Though my partiality is questionable on two counts: 1) Renato Corona is married to my cousin Cristina (referred to in Article III- creating an excessive entanglement with (Arroyo) through her appointment of his wife to office.), and 2) I released a YouTube December 10, 2011 endorsing Mitt Romney in my U.S. senatorial campaign, I believe in even just finding Gingrich campaigns sublime effort in editing out the two words yellow highlighted above that he spoke in the debate (watch the YouTube from the campaign video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyJNyZSy_NY from channel at author 'ngingrich' and pay attention to what happens at the 1:00 time mark), validates initial merits in parlaying the parallel between Philippines Benigno Aquino III and Newt Gingrich. (I supported my other cousin- Raul Rocos race against Arroyo in 2004. He lost, dying of cancer 2005. Corona, Arroyos vice presidential Chief of Staff since 1998, continued when she became president 2001, until his 2002 Supreme Court appointment; his May 12, 2010 Chief Justice appointment was just two days after president-elect Benigno Aquino IIIs win.)
Instead of isolated, Corona's labeling the populist Aquino 'axe' against the judiciary, 'Dictatorial echoes rather ubiquitously amongst judiciary, and also appearing elsewhere. Philippine Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, a member elect of the International Criminal Court, said of Supreme Court justices, "they will now be frightened out of their wits to write what they truly feel should be the proper decision according to the law and the facts established." Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines Public Affairs Chairman Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez aired of Corona on radio, his observations on President Aquino are correct, but his answers should be given during the Senate trial, as it is the Senate that will be judging him and judge whether this is the truth. Corona made his concerns of Aquino acts towards judiciary in public rally surrounded by the Supreme Court bench, court aides and hundreds of supporters, on 12/14/2011, a day members of the judiciary of various Manila courts wore black in sit-down strikes protesting the impeachment of Corona, of which Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) President Roan Libarios opined, We support Chief Justice Corona. Everything he said in his speech is correct and what he was saying was just in defense of the Constitution.
Newt Gingrich, 12/15/11, when told 1802 abolishment of 18 out of 35 judges was, highly criticized, simply stated, Not by anybody in power in 1802 (1:28-1:30 on video). The similarity between zealots Newt and Benigno is just Draconian alteration of the judiciary. But Benignos insistence on not having a hand in railroaded impeachment, and the Gingrich Campaign deliberate elimination of two Newt words viewed nationwide- seals the taxonomy.
Newt Gingrich appears to, as he did as Speaker of the House, thrive on increasing his own power trips. A Pew study finding of an increase in the Catholic vote for Obama 2008 over Bush 2004, substantiates the view of Catholics a decisive swing vote in presidential elections. Newts spring 2009 conversion to Catholicism may be seen as a spiritual trip; however, it may arguably also be an extremely well calculated decision, his performance based on currently eschewed, 2008 religious electoral statistics. Whether or not, some years from now after trials, Newt stays Catholic with Callista, may be revealing.

The problem in the past was that mostly northern big city Catholics voted dem and were white
Now they have gotten better but the brown Catholics vote like other minorities and they are big and in many places have given local parishes a reprieve from extinction...like where I live...Franklin TN
they vote left
And in many cases is seen as a vote against anti white majority they are taught is the bigoted power that stole their land
Doubt Newt can change that much and Romney sure won’t
Got that right. Race uber alles.
Apples and pineapples. But nice try.
