Newt Gingrich: ‘Nobody In The Elite Media Wants To Cover’ Obama’s Alinsky Roots
Breitbart.com ^ | January 23rd, 2012 | Newt Gingrich

Posted on 01/23/2012 6:46:48 PM PST by Daffynition

"But the objective fact is [Obama] believes in a very radical vision of America's future that is fundamentally different from probably 80 percent of this country. And nobody in the elite media has ever wanted to dig into it, ever wanted--why would he veto the Keystone pipeline? Why would he kill jobs in America? Why would he have a National Labor Relations Board attack Boeing? Because it fits the model of Alinsky radicalism."

Some say Newt isn't 'electable' because he shoots from the hip.

I can't speak for anyone else but for me his spontaneity is fast becoming his most endearing quality. Although he's far from perfect, compared to the balless poltroons currently infesting the GOP this man just may be exactly what the doctor ordered.

As the stupid party becomes reconciled to the growing possibility this man might be our nominee, I only pray he completely rejects their inevitable council.

What I've been saying all along; not that Newt's perfect but that he'll engage in the crucial battle of our generation.

He says what we've been screaming in our heads.

Gingrich goes for the throat.

Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

Newt has been been talking about Obama’s mentor - Saul Alinsky. I watched cnn trying to sanitize Saul Alinsky’s radical tactics ahead of Newt’s appearance tonight in the debates. They said Alinsky was neither left or right. (barf)

All I know is he was a frackin commie.

Unfortunately, only about 10 percent of the voting americans have ever heard the name Saul Alinsky!

Zero is here to transform Amerika; flowers will pop out of the ground bearing large money; my unemployment and food stamps will get me through five years, and by then, I’ll be liv’in with another bitch. Life be good!

Man, them fat cat rich guys wit $50,000 income owes us big time!. Who be this guy Saul Alinsky, a Jew in our hood???

If Newt is the nominee, I relish him going for Hussein's jugular. Maybe this old story will get some new life:

In 1981 — the year Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University — Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. After that visit, Obama traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there. The Obama campaign says Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks, staying with his friend’s family in Karachi and also visiting Hyderabad in Southern India.

I fully agree. In another time, his infidelities would be more of an issue to me, and I hate to say this, but in 2012 they are mere peccadillos. He's looking more and more like the only available antidote to Obama's poisonous policies.

Maybe he thought it would help his horndog creds at the time. It was stupid, and Newt backed off of both global warming and the photo-op later.

Newt is not afraid to get up on a debate stage and look Barry in the eye and call him a Sol Alinsky radical to his face. No other candidate will do that.

Former Socialist liberal Democrat staffer turned Republican talk host Michael Medved told a caller today that this is nothing to make an issue out of.

He said even Dick Armey had a copy of this book. Isn’t that akin to bragging about Thomas Jefferson looking over a koran? When you have the enemy’s playbook, it’s sometimes good to take a look at it. Not to adapt those techniques for your own use so much as to be ready for something when it is tried.

The MSMDNC Media collectively bit their tongues and shilled for the Clintons for 16 years. It wasn’t until Hillary posed a political threat to the Golden Child, the One, The Thiller up Chris Matthew’s pant leg... THEN they vented their frustrations over the Clintons. And even then they were not upset to see the Clinton Administration filling the vacancies in the Obama White House.

It’ll be a long time before the DNC-Stalinist-Socialists are willing to concede their godhead had any failings.

Obama claims he's not a socialist or an Islamist. I wonder just how his foreign policies would differ if he were.

We've seen how he's treated our former allies.

Gotta say, I'm still a Newt-skeptic and I've hated virtually every single thing out of his mouth between 1999 and 2011. But...talk like this is nothing less than stirring. Inspiring. Something we've waited since 1989 to hear from the executive branch.

The Left has been in spin mode lately. When faced with overwhelmingly Democrat run GOP debates, some leftist proclaimed that Stephanopolous is a right-winger because he may have posed some biting questions at a Democrat debate once.

College students who were crapping in diapers when Stephi and the Gollum were running the Clinton campaign in 1992 should read up before making such posts.

Yes. What bothers me is how old he was at the time. I can understand a 30-year old, even a 40-year old doing this. The fact that he was considerably older concerns me as in, “unprincipled political opportunist.” Horn Dog creds? That makes sense, especially at my age, but I don't vote that way. Besides, Princess Nancy never returns my calls.

We need to act in a manner that sucks power out of the Fed as opposed to vise versa. That's why I'm on board with Ron Paul . . . but must unhappily accede to pragmatism these days.

That was made before the IPCC email leaks out of Hadley demonstrated the corruption of the IPCC process. Yes, Newt was slower than some, but the science then was not as clear as it is now.

Well at his age, maybe they refer to it as snow on the roof but fire still in the furnace. (Was he a divorcee again at that point? I don’t remember.)

Ron Paul’s political philosophy is maddeningly incomplete, and that’s the giant spider (let alone a fly) in his anti-Fed ointment. The US can’t ignore the rest of the globe any more. And national sovereignty has to count for something — every other country cares about who comes in through its borders. A suicide of the GOP we do not want. If Newt too seems to smack of amnesty with his Hispanic municipal centers idea, at least he’s trying to think outside the box about how to mitigate the illegale problem.

Alinsky roots. Wrapped in moisture-proof plastic and sealed in a reusable plastic container. Look for them in the mushroom aisle of your local grocery or medical marijuana dispensary.

Newt Gingrich: ‘Nobody In The Elite Media Wants To Cover’ Obama’s Alinsky Roots

Alinsky, Alinsky, Alinsky.

Obama was trained in Alinsky tactics, like thousands of other cadre organizers.

But do you know who Alinsky himself hand-picked as his successor, and who he trained personally to take over for him?

Yep, good old Fingerprints herself.

I give Gingrich credit for going after Obama on his Marxist past. No one else seems to care. This 6 part interview from awhile back with a former college classmate of Obama’s @ Occidental is VERY revealing and a must hear for anyone who isn’t familiar with this:

Santorum’s failing, IMHO, is his inability to be truly spontaneous. training as a lawyer has it down side. He has a hard time breaking away from his brief. He had a chance last night. Terry Schiavo wasn’t a legal case: she was poor woman whose husband wanted her dead, and refused to let her parents take over her care. So she was starved to death.

Out of the blue, quite a while ago, I had a dream that was ever so clear that Hannity was the President, coming off from Air Force One. I could tell by his demeanor that he was doing a great job.

Hannity would rather be drawn-and-quartered than go for the throat.

Hannity was the only one notable that constantly went for Obama's juggler vein before the election concerning his extremely bad connections. He was and still is like a pit bull who won't let the issue go. Nobody else was hardly breathing a word about the real Obama but Hannity and that's not a small thing.

It would be interesting to secretly follow some of them on important Satan worshiping nights and see where they go and what they do. It wouldn’t be surprising at all if it was to participate in Satan worshiping rituals. The unmistakable, telltale odor of brimstone lingers around many of them.

Hannity’s gotten pretty weak in the last couple of years; it’s almost painful to listen to him.

And he wasn’t the only one going after “the real Obama” - not by a long shot.
