CPAC 2012: Newt Gingrich hits the reset button.
Human Events ^ | February 11, 2012 | John Hayward

Posted on 02/11/2012 10:49:12 PM PST by true believer forever

No one can say they don’t know what Newt Gingrich will do after his inauguration. He’s got big plans…

He pledged to have a full list of his proposed executive orders and presidential findings published online by October, so that every voter will know exactly what they’re getting. He wants every Republican candidate to campaign with him on a pledge to hit the next Congress in a monster jam session that repeals the job-killing centralized corruption of ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, and Sarbanes-Oxley by the time he’s sworn in…

… and that’s just an appetizer.

Within two hours of plopping his Dilbert calendar and family photographs on the Resolute Desk, he’ll have signed an executive order to cashier every one of the Obama czars. Then he’ll sign one to approve the oil pipeline from Canada to Houston. By lunch, he’ll have moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Next up would be re-instituting Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City policy, to forbid spending money to subsidize abortion overseas…

By the time ex-President Obama “lands in Chicago,” he aims to have repealed “40 percent of Obama’s government.”

Newt Gingrich Can Improve Upon His Goals By, Really, Doing These Things: First, to the best of human abilities, find each and every penny of waste, fraud, and abuses of each and every level of the U.S. government.-No exemptions, and no excuses! Next, show all of your findings to the general public, for all to see. Next, take all of the best actions possible to, truly, get rid of it all. Next, do all that you can to, always and seriously, work towards the goal of getting rid of all taxes and all fees that do exist. Next, find the most successful ways of, truly, moving towards the full privatization of as much of the U.S. government as can be possible. And, finally and always, encourage the rest of the world governments to do the exact same things with their governments.

This really is the best interview I’ve seen Piers Morgan do - Newt REFUSED to let him steamroll him, no matter how many different ways he tried.

Newt’s self-deprecating humor is wonderful. He truly loves animals.

Didn’t realize elephants have 105,000 muscles in their trunks!

“Newt Gingrich Can Improve Upon His Goals By, Really, Doing These Things”

Gingrich has flaws, without doubt, he is not perfect, like each of us. But his strengths are most important than his past personal flaws. If you could find a perfect human being, just show him to me. American people do not elect a saint, a pure white nun,
or up-to-the-mountain prophet; they elect a President next November.

America needs the strongest, the most knowledgeable person, who is able to change fast and decisively the politics in Washington, in such a way that the country may unleash all its capability to restore the economic, defense and political stand inside and outside and repair the heavy damages the liberal leadership imposed on it.

“Terrific interview at the zoo. 45 worthy minutes.”

I enjoyed EVERY minute of it. Discovering Newt’s true human nature, a kind, full of humor and self-derision person, with whom most of the people can connect.

He comes from a modest family, studied and worked very hard to rise to the top, and was blessed with an extraordinary intelligence and wit, which contrasts so much with the Beltway guys describing his character as irascible, unpredictable and umbrageous.

Around the 20 min mark of that interview, he talks of a profound experience with his dad at a war memorial in Europe, viewing the bones of 600 THOUSAND men killed in 9 months.
That’s when it struck him hard,” THIS IS REAL.”

He was a teenager then, and has spent the last 53 years, FIFTY-THREE YEARS, preparing for this run, this nomination, this opportunity (if given) to serve as President.

He’s profoundly humbled, and he’s prepared like no other.

Transcript of the interview with P.Morgan
http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1201/15/pmt.01.html

“MORGAN: I want to take you back to when you were 14 years old and your stepfather, Bob, took you to the old battlefields in France.

GINGRICH: Well, it’s called the Ossuary, and it’s a glassed-in, basement-like area that had the bones of 100,000 people who’d been blown apart in the fields and left to rot. The battle lasted for nine months. And so literally back in that era, you know, they went out after the war and they gathered up all these bones, German and French bones, put them all in this one extraordinary memorial.

We were staying with a friend of my father’s who had been drafted in 1941 and sent to the Philippines, served on the Bataan Death March, and spent three and a half years in a Japanese prison camp. And so the combination of seeing the battlefield of this — 600,000 men died in a nine-month period of this battle.

And listening to him talk about the stories of defeat. And then, a few weeks later, the French paratroopers killed the French Fourth Republic and brought back General de Gaulle to create the Fifth Republic.

I think that combination of things for a young kid from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, just sort of drove home that this stuff is all real. That, you know, this is not just a game. This is —

MORGAN: How would it shape you as a president in the sense that you’re going to face, if you become president, moments where you have to decide, do you take your country to war? It’s going to happen to you. What does that tell you about warfare? I know you’re a military historian in many ways.

GINGRICH: Well, it’s deeper than just going to war. It’s the question of, how can you make the historically right decisions to give your children and grandchildren a prosperous, safe, free country? I mean maybe avoiding going to war because you use the right build-up or the right diplomacy, because you have foresight.

It’s also, how do you operate in a principled manner? Because you can’t just ad hoc all these different decisions. You have to have some underlying set of principles that enable you to say, you know, for America to remain a great nation, for America to remain an exceptional nation, these are things we have to focus on.

And you have to set priorities. And where possible, you have to get ahead of the problems. I mean, one of the amazing things about both Eisenhower and Reagan was that they were able to sort of see around the corner. And so they could take steps that achieved a great deal at minimum risk. And both of them tended to avoid risk.”

Thanks so much for clarifying that part of the interview.
600,000 died in 9 mo. - the memorial shows the bones of 100,000

Imagine Newt’s epiphany as a teenager, changing the course of his life.

This amazing letter to Newt (posted by tbf) http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2845854/posts is the BEST.

Here’s another paper, worth reading:

http://texasgopvote.com/2012-elections/why-i-rick-santorum-and-support-newt-gingrichand-another-bit-about-mitt-romney-003849

“Let’s consider that America needs major surgery, and I’m not even certain that that will save it. But I’m pretty certain there will be calamity and/or great dysfunction without it. Now if you or a loved one were in such a dire condition, are you going to look for an impeccable personal life (there aren’t any by the way) or are you going to look for a skilled and experienced surgeon? NO other candidate has Gingrich’s experience and skill with change in government, and none have his awareness of American history and what is required to restore it. Only Gingrich has proposed the necessary changes in our tax and entitlement systems.

And only he looks over contemporary legal conventions and proposes that judicial authority is out of historical balance. We conservatives have long complained of presumptuous judicial activism. We shouldn’t continue to hang our hopes on filling the judiciary with more modest judges. The executive and legislative branches must hold the judiciary to constitutional account. It is not an infallible oligarchy. We know that. Our representatives should act on it. Gingrich has the support of Ronald Reagan’s conservative talk-show host son Michael, Reagan’s economic advisor Arthur Laffer, the brilliant conservative economist and social theorist Thomas Sowell, former Senator and presidential candidate Fred Thompson, J.C. Watts and Bill McCollum who served under Gingrich’s Speakership in The House, former candidates TX Governor Rick Perry and Businessman Herman Cain, and pollster and Republican strategist Kelly Anne Conway. The condition of the patient is dire. That’s why I support Gingrich without hesitation.”

I like and trust the good thinkers who like and trust Newt.

Gingrich has the support of Ronald Reagan’s conservative talk-show host son Michael, Reagan’s economic advisor Arthur Laffer, the brilliant conservative economist and social theorist Thomas Sowell, former Senator and presidential candidate Fred Thompson, J.C. Watts and Bill McCollum who served under Gingrich’s Speakership in The House, former candidates TX Governor Rick Perry and Businessman Herman Cain, and pollster and Republican strategist Kelly Anne Conway.

...not to mention Colonel Oliver North and many others.

so then what happens to people like you?

Good question. Some become burgher flippers, one guy I know went to the Post Office, during the Clinton cuts period. He's a retired AF reserve Lt. Col., one of the few intell guys in my unit that were intell on active duty as well as in the reserves. He's been stationed in Thailand during the Southeast Asia War Games.

But in my case, my wife has tenure, but she doesn't make as much as I did. She wanted to retire a little early to get us established in San Antonio, where we'd hoped to retire, and where I expected to be transferred back to after we lost our Army contract. Now she's looking at working until she's at least 67, maybe 68. I'll probably have to start drawing on my retirement, since I'm old enough to do that. But it will mean starting Social Security early, which means I'll get less. Neither of my corporate retirement funds are worth much either, in the first case because it's based on the High 3 years, which were when I making less than 2/3 what I was making at the job I just got laid off from, plus I only worked there 21+ years. the second was a defined contribution plan, but I only worked there just under 12 years. 5 more would have helped a lot. What would have helped even more was not having to maintain two households after the Clinton-sizing.

I might end with a total as much or almost as much as I'm now getting in unemployment

I'm appalled at how little SS will be, after having paid in since 1968, and full time since 1973, except for 18 months when I was grad school, learning the things I needed to know to design those force protection/enemy whacking things. :) I knew it was scam/Ponzi scheme, but I didn't' realize how bad it really was.

Be lucky to break even when we sell the second house, which was needed because of having to live apart after that first layoff. But at least that means I'll get the down payment back, and maybe a little extra to put into our other house, which is bigger but much older and somewhat run down, since the "fixer" hasn't lived there for 13+ years.
