Posted on 09/02/2012 9:06:52 PM PDT by cdchik123
Im frankly, fed up, with the one-sided bias, a frustrated Newt Gingrich asserted on Sundays Meet the Press, citing two blatant examples. First: Where is the outrage over overt, deliberate racism in Vice President Joe Biden telling a black audience if the Republicans win you will be in chains?
Second, President Obama voted three times to protect the right of doctors to kill babies who came out of abortion still alive. That plank says tax-paid abortion at any moment, meaning partial birth abortion -- thats a 20 percent issue, a position which Democrats couldnt defend...for a day if it was made clear and as vivid as all the effort is made to paint Republicans.
Gingrich charged: If the news media spent as much time on the extremism of the Democrats as they spend trying to attack us, they would not be able to adopt that plank this week. Another guest panelist, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, declared Im a Planned Parenthood Democrat on the issue of choice, but when Gingrich challenged him to defend the Democratic Party platform support for taxpayer funding of late-term and partial-birth abortion, Friedman called it a defensible position, then suddenly decided Im here as a journalist, Ill let the Democratic Party defend it.
Seconds earlier during the roundtable, NBC News eminence Tom Brokaw maintained Republican opposition to abortion is antithetical to full rights for women. I think this is the century of women, he asserted before fretting there is even among some Republican women out there the view that the party doesnt quite buy into that yet. He contended the social issues are very important to women. Its their bodies, their lives, they feel that its not entirely embraced by the Republican Party. Thats my own judgment.
From the September 2 Meet the Press:

Is Gingroach gonna have even stronger values with his next wife?
And that is relevant to the article how?
re: “Is Gingroach gonna have even stronger values with his next wife?”
Good Lord, man, yes Gingrich sinned, but in this case he spoke the TRUTH! He defended truth against this panel of “journalists” who probably live worse lives - and advocate no mercy for babies who happen to have the audacity to survive an abortion.
I’m not defending Newt’s wrongs, but when he’s right I think he deserves support - especially from us on Free Republic.
The Republican Party embraces the fact that women’s physical strength is pretty much concentrated in their legs, meaning, this is the area on women’s bodies that can best fight off an attacker in a mugging AND be implemented to avoid unwanted pregnancy by being easily CLOSED.
Democrats give women no such credit for their physical abilities.
It’s Romney has any kind of balls he will make Newt Gingrich his Press Secretary if elected.
Extremism in Democratic Platform :
Dn't need n Weatherman t see which waybama's wind
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."
Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
newflash: you could have legs like a zebra and it won’t help you if a man twice your size and five times your strength his holding a serious knife to your throat, or a gun, or even his big butcher hands that could strangle you easily in three minutes.
How can anyone wonder why America is in decline? The President of the United States enthusiastically supports the barbaric killing of innocent human life, his political party enshrines the bizarre position into its platform and stands a good chance of being reelected. Therefore he reflects the “values” of a near majority of the population. How can such a people who openly embrace decadence expect to prosper?
Yes he sinned. He has tried to atone...just as all of us do.
I was for Newt...but now I think he may be more affective as a spokesman. As a presidential candidate his words would have been guarded (or not, lol).
He can bring things to the table that need to be said...and if he takes on the msm..they need to be a little bit nervous.
I still would pay good money to see him debate The Won.
But it will not happen in my life time.
The only way to get the enemedia to do its job is for all in the GOP to coordinate around Gingrich’s message about the extremist Dem platform and all put out the same message.
They won’t do it though because they are afraid it will get thrown back in their faces, so they prefer to just let it go.
I’m sick of the pro-choice crowd and their mantra that a woman’s body belongs to herself. That isn’t what the Bible teaches:
OUR BODIES ARE TO GLORIFY GOD
A. OUR BODIES...
1. Are now members of Christ - 1Co 6:13-15
a. To be used for the Lord, not immorality
b. Otherwise we make members of Christ members of a harlot!
2. Are now to be instruments of righteousness - Ro 6:12-13,19
a. No longer instruments of unrighteousness to sin
b. No longer slaves of uncleanness leading to lawlessness
— Clearly they are not to be used for sin or self!
B. TO GLORIFY GOD...
1. By how we live - Ro 12:1-2
a. Living sacrificial, holy lives, acceptable to God
Isn’t it funny that the pro-abortion crowd loudly proclaim their bodies as their own, however, will stoop and accept tyrants telling them what they can and can’t eat?
Abortion is murder and nothing anyone says will change that. A fetus is a human being even before formed in the womb.
New International Version (©1984)
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
They can argue all they want, but the Scriptures are very clear that God knew us before we were even in our mother’s wombs.
I do have a problem with the EPA...that Gingrich is for abolishing.
And what does that have to do with him tackling tough issues? As I recall he was a pretty conservative and effective Speaker Of The House. (please do us both a favor and don't post a Newt/Pelosi picture.)
>> Friedman called it a defensible position, then suddenly decided Im here as a journalist, Ill let the Democratic Party defend it.
Convenience, not character.
JEEEEEZE!... please try to understand that the point I was attempting to make is that the liberals don’t believe women have any responsibility to avoid a pregnancy they can’t afford by the simple act of CLOSING THEIR LEGS! They’d rather you and I as taxpayers supply them with contraceptives and abortion whether it is against our beliefs or not.
Women’s physical strength actually IS concentrated in their legs, but, if such an attack as you describe (a “Hulk” of a violent man) occurs, then I would suggest that women use the brain God gave them to anticipate their vulnerability against the physically stronger male of the species and buy, train with, and USE A GUN.
“Is Gingroach gonna have even stronger values with his next wife?”
I bet you’re as pure as wind driven snow. For a christian you’re sure good at casting those stones.
Does the platform of the Democrats truly support abortion in the 8th or 9th month?????
“his political party enshrines the bizarre position into its platform and stands a good chance of being reelected.”
I agree whole heartedly with your condemnation of infanticide. And your cautionary note is something that has long troubled me. But one must also remember that Obama’s decisive election victory in 2008 was achieved on a campaign theme of “a fundamentally transformation of America” (exact words)! If 2008 demonstrated anything, it was the validity of a remark by H.L. Mencken that it’s impossibility to conceive of some limit to their stupidity.
I agree. I read his profile. Shaking head.
Well, Democrats voted for a guy that supports abortion after birth. They really don’t give shit about Life.
How so very childish...and so like a Democrat. That is as low as I can go in name calling.
really don’t give a ...
if you don’t want a baby, don’t make a baby
you don’t have a right to KILL a baby!
abortions from ‘reported’ rape is less than 2% of abortions
Gingrich: “ so you think its acceptable to have a party committed to tax-paid abortion in the eighth and ninth month?”
Friedman: “Yeah, I do believe thats a defensible position ...........”
Translation: “it’s a pro-choice nine month old fetus”
You and people like you are the very reason we have trouble getting good conservatives to run for office.
We eat our own.
You should be ashamed.
I understnd your point. I wish you would beable to undertand mine. Just being a woman means one is at risk all the time. I’ll never forget what a close call I had once when I lived in L.A. - I had a toothache and got up at 4 am to take a pill - got a weird feeling - went into my living room - a man had come in the window. It was summer and I was just in underwear. I knew that he was going to jump me in the next second and it would be all over. I bent my knees (thank you, Carlos Casteneda) and let out a scream that woke the neighborhood. The guy left. The police came. I couldn’t have used a gun at that moment - I was too groggy. The scream worked. That time. But you have no idea how often random men - bus drivers, cab drivers, a neighbor...turn into predators out of nowhere. We can’t go around shooting everyone.
I believe you. The whole rape abortion thing is bogus. I was responding to something else.
“The President of the United States enthusiastically supports the barbaric killing of innocent human life, his political party enshrines the bizarre position into its platform and stands a good chance of being reelected. “
You know, if this continues how can America survive? We are inviting our own destruction.
Mother Teresa once said: “The fruit of mass abortion is nuclear war.”
Here that, ladies? The social issue of your century is... infanticide!
It would be funny at first, then go to anger over the fact that the moron in the White House has been considered the leader of the free world, then it would change to pity as you watched a defenseless child get his a** handed to him. The whole while stuttering and stammering, searching for his beloved teleprompter hoping to find an answer.
But, in the end it would still be funny.
Good for Newt. He has a great way of stating the truth and disrupting the lies of liberals. That is why so many of us here thought he might be a good candidate.
Now he can at least do some damage on the talk shows.
You’re an idiot.
I’ve met Callista and seen the special relationship she has with Newt. As a lifelong Catholic, Callista was instrumental in her husband’s conversion to that faith in 2009. She is much different from Newt’s first wife, Jackie Battley, his high school Geometry teacher. That marriage began on the wrong step when Newt was 19 (she was 26) and collapsed after 20 years. In 2011 their daughter, Jackie Gingrich Cushman, remembers that it was her mother who requested the divorce, that it happened prior to the hospital stay, and that Gingrich’s visit was for the purpose of bringing the couple’s children to see their mother, not to discuss the divorce.
Marianne Ginther, Newt’s second wife, was a willing participant in a six year affair with Gingrich while he was married to his first wife. I believe the marriage fell apart when Marianne became involved in an arms sting by meeting an arms dealer in Paris. That kind of publicity was not the kind Newt wanted in his political career. Their marriage lasted 18 years.
Part of the book was establishing a government agency regulating carbon credits, like the EPA wasn't causing enough damage.
He also was pushing for national healthcare with Hillary Clinton.
For cryin out loud, his PH.D thesis was on Belgian Education Policy in the Congo, 1945-1960.
Just don't be shocked when he goes liberal. Again.
Newt is a great American and Patriot. You? You’re just an internet troll. You’re a pissant little nothing in other words. Don’t ever forget that pissant.
I have heard that Newt has got another eco book on the way
Rape doesn’t have a damn thing to do with it, and everybody knows it.
“Rape” is the scarecrow of the killing fields.
Newt is just amazing in the way he holds liberals accountable to the full logical extent of their positions. Most other people let liberals recite a nice-sounding principle and get away with it. Newt forces them to answer to the reality that principle logically implies which totally undermines them.
Like I’ve said before, Newt must be the least effective “liberal” of all time, since when he took over the House, the entire government including Bill Clinton shifted rightward. He got federal spending as a percentage of GDP down lower than it was under Reagan.
If we carry a weapon, no really means NO. And it means no even if a potential attacker is armed, too. The attacker will go on his way looking for an easier target. That's why today's fathers should take the old settler approach and teach their daughters about weapons as early as possible and not confine the lessons just to their sons.
Our problem though, is that a lot of daughters these days don't have fathers because families have been destroyed by government. Funny how the Democrat Party claims to be the party of women's rights while constantly fighting to prevent women [and men too] from legally arming themselves so they can assert their own rights.
Liberals don't want people to be able to do anything for themselves, and certainly don't want women to be able to deter rapists. They want to keep everyone in fear so people will cling to the false promises of government protection and the fallback of an abortion when government fails.
The Republicans embrace the fact that women only need physical strength in their trigger fingers.
God will remember the 50 MILLION DEAD ABORTED BABIES. Entire civilization have disappeared for less.
He has done more to advance the cause of conservatism than you will ever do. Just what are your contributions lately? Carping and complaining doesn’t count...
Romney needs to put Gingrich as “the” administrative spokesman
The leftard womyn scream “keep your laws off our bodies!” Yet at the same time they celebrate Obamacare, which is a gov’t confiscation of all of our physical beings. Obamacare gives any President the power to appoint anyone they want to the board that approves medical procedures. As a result the government can ban abortion with the stroke of a pen. All it takes is for the political worm to turn....
Idiot leftard womyn celebrate the legislative tool to kill abortion, while accusing Repubs of wanting to pass paws that can be used to kill abortion! Morons indeed.
