Newt Gingrich: Republicans, don't cave on shutdown
CNN ^ | 9/30/13 | Newt Gingrich

Posted on 09/30/2013 3:19:27 PM PDT by Libloather

(CNN) -- The worst possible outcome for the country from the impasse over the continuing resolution that would prevent a government shutdown would be for House Republicans to cave.

This is a pivotal conflict that will define the relationship between Congress and the executive branch for the next three years. The country will be much better off if Congress does not abdicate its constitutional role and if the president cannot ignore that role.

When President Barack Obama is willing to negotiate with Russian, Syrian and Iranian leaders but unwilling to negotiate with the U.S. House of Representatives, it is time for the House to stand firm.

When asked why they “let it” shut down by the sycophantic Zero King lover reporters, every Repub should tell the DNC shill/”reporters” that the Dems shut it down by playing brinksmanship over Obamamcare and took the government not just to the edge, but over it, by not passing the House bill.

Shut it down until we have paid off at least 75% of the debt.

Let the friggin no good lazy ass government workers find other work. We don’t need most of them anyway. They act like WE are THEIR servants instead of the other way around.

The left has sold itself on a false history of the 2012 election. According to the left, Obama won the election and therefore we should do whatever he wants.

This ignores that there was also an election for the "People's House" in 435 congressional districts, and the Republicans won. It also ignores the 63 million Americans who voted against his re-election and his agenda. Winning 52% does not mean he gets 100% of what he wants.


BTW the usual leftists idiots are bombarding the CNN comments section as we speak.

The Republicans in Congress should spend every minute of the government shutdown standing in the speakers’ platforms of the House and Senate repeating ObamaCare’s most alarming statistics ad infinitum:

For example, ‘’A family of four making $______ a year in New York state will be required to pay an additional $_______! each month in healthcare premiums under Obamacare.’’ On and on, mentioning every state, possibly getting into specific horrendous cases. Just keep talking.

..........
Things went south for newt personally but, the pubbies picked up extra house seats in the next election, got a raft of legislation favorable to them passed subsequently and went on to win the next presidential election. The actual shut down of government under newt was a blip. In the end it made clinton look good. Why? Because the pubbies slowed government spending long enough for the booming economy to produce the tax revenue that balanced the budget.

Same thing is going to happen with Obama. If they follow through by holding down govnernment spending while the economy grows—Obama will leave office with a nearly balanced budget.

If the supreme court declares obamacare unconstitutional come november or december — then the economy explodes and the federal budget balances with the added revenue of a fast growing economy.

OBAMACARE IS FOREIGN TO AMERICA, FOREIGN TO OUR CONSTITUTION, AND SIGNED INTO LAW BY A FOREIGNER FRAUD OF A PRESIDENT.

This stalemate is a direct result of something being forced onto Americans that does NOT belong here. Obamacare is INCOMPATIBLE with our Constitution. 0bamacare is a threat to the religious freedoms of Catholics and Christians, for starters..

The Boston Tea Party and the CW started over matters far less threatening to our freedoms than Obamacare!

Chief Justice John Roberts was blackmailed! There is no other possible explanation for his UNCONSTITUTIONAL decision.

I wonder (sarcasm) when the lame stream media will talk about the do nothing Senate under Harry (red) Reid? They haven’t passed a Budget for at least 4 years. They should abolish the worthless Senate, for all the good it does.

Perhaps we should learn from one of the master diplomatic chess players on the planet right now. Putin. How did he solve the Syrian crisis and get Obama to back down ? He allowed Obama to claim he was the winner. Simple as that. Unless Obama looks like the winner, he wont budge.

So how do we make Obama think he was the winner ? Perhaps we can put a resolution in to build a huge monument to Obama. My suggestion would be a large stone face carving similar to ones on Mount Rushmore. Only instead of a vertical face monument, make it horizontal and somewhat flattened. That way people can walk all over the Emperors magnificent face. How in the world could his followers ever complain about that ? A stone monument to their Great Leader.

Just do not tell them that their Emperor's mouth will be open and there will be a drain in it.

The president has decided to seek to bully and bluff his way to get what he wants. House Republicans must not abdicate their responsibilities now.

Any surrender on the continuing resolution would confirm the contempt with which Obama and Reid already hold Boehner and his Republican colleagues. This fight is about something much bigger than the Republican Party and the future of Obamacare. - Newt Gingrich

It is about whether the president dictates to America's elected representatives or negotiates with them when they disagree. It will be very bad for America if a president whose hubris is astounding is reinforced in the belief that he can bully his way into getting everything he wants by making demagogic attack speeches.

The next few weeks might be painful if House Republicans insist on getting to a compromise and refuse to surrender. But the next three years will be frightening if House Republicans cave and the president learns that nothing stands between him and his ability to use overweening power outside the Constitution to advance his ideology.

This is a big moment of decision for America. Don't give in now.

GO NEWT!

Obama has found it very easy to advance his narrow ideological agenda of failure-prone Marxism.

4 years after Obama conned his Democrats into passing the Federal takeover of the cash cow of Medical Insurance, the PC, Doormat Republicans are finally timidly suggesting defunding that Federal takeover.

Without the weak, PC, Doormat Republicans Boehner and McConnell being stupidly kept in their respective leadership positions by truly cowardly House and Senate Members, Obama Medical Insurance “Care” Takeover would have been defunded long ago.

The primal yearning of the 47 % who pay no personal Federal Income tax is to belong to a tribe where all of their choices are dictated to them by their arrogant tribal leader.

This a common trait of those who have low self-esteem.

In that sense, Obamanation is truly a cult: low self-esteem people believing everything their cult leader tells them, no questions asked.

Freedom is defined in the dictionary as follows:
1.) Exemption or liberation from slavery or imprisonment.
3.) Liberty of choice or action.

Most of the 47 % riding in the “free” wagon seek out slavery, and lack of personal choice.

They thus feel safe, and secure in the knowledge that “this is as bad as it is going to get.”

Liberty is defined in the dictionary as follows:
1.) The state of being exempt from the domination of others or from restricting circumstances; freedom.
5.) The power of voluntary choice: freedom from necessity.
6.) Individual Liberty: Freedom from restraint in the performance of rights outside of government control.

Most people who are getting a free ride in the wagon where 47 % pay no personal Federal Income Taxes, are terrified of making a voluntary choice.

The 47 % would prefer that they be under government control where the choices are made for him.

All of this societal wussiness has made it very easy for B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, to advance his narrow ideological agenda of European-style, failure-prone, Marxism in spite of PC, Doormat Republican token “opposition.”

BTW, unlike taxes, Federal Obama ‘care’ Insurance charges can be increased EVERY YEAR to whatever % the present and future arrogant leaders of Obamanation wants.

BTW, BTW, the free-loading 47 % will always vote for the Candidate for POTUS approved by Obamanation.
_________________________________

The question to be asked is: “If it is in the Nation’s best interest to shut down the Government, then why are there only TWO Federal Politicians, Obama and Reid, loudly advocating shutting down the US Federal Government?

Obama has MANY reasons to shutdown the Federal Government such as:

1.) A headline grabbing story that will distract attention from the Impeachable scandals of:

Benghazi Massacre Dereliction of Duty by Obama as CIC;
Obamacare Insurance managed by the corrupt IRS;
IRS harassment of political opponents of Obama;
Use of the NSA by Obama to spy on everybody in the USA;
etc, etc.

2.) The use of fear of a shutdown might help to protect defunding and eventual abolishment of Obama’s narrowly focused ideological agenda of an European-style, failure-prone, Marxist, monopoly of the US Medical Insurance Industry.

3.) Spreading fear and blame might also preserve Obama’s power to increase Obamacare Insurance premiums on an annual basis.

*This would be highly advantageous to Obama as the increase in mandatory insurance premiums would not be a tax, as the “unexpected market conditions” would be given as the reason for the increase.

*Also there would be no need to ask for the “Advice and Consent” of Congress, as the IRS would be in complete control of all income and medical records.

4.) The last reason is the most important for Obama, personally: America would at last no longer be a Nation where the Liberty to choose one’s own family destiny could ever exist again.

As for Reid, the best guess I have is that he wants a Government Monopoly of the Medical Insurance Industry. Well, to be fair, Reid calls for a “single payer” system.

My suspician is that multi-millionaire Reid, nearing Federal retirement, owns a lot of stock in some companies that are tied to a “single payer” system.

Maybe the NSA, or the IRS can find out for us?

I’m going to ask my US Senator from TEXAS, The Esteemed Senator John “To Hell with my voters” Cornyn to check on this for me - - - .

Supposedly, there was (under US law) an irregularity in the adoption of his children, who were born in Ireland but were adopted through a religious order in a Latin American country. There was nothing underhanded about it; it was a Catholic agency that was international.

But I think it may have conflicted with US law in some way, because US law is designed to discourage adoption and encourage abortion. So I think this is probably what was used.

However, Roberts gave Congress a way to kill the thing by declaring it a tax. If it’s a tax, it had to originate in the House. It didn’t, but was imposed through the Senate and the Executive. If someone challenged it on these grounds, which I think was what Roberts hoped, it could easily be defeated.

He reminded Pierce Morgan that Obama was negotiating with Iran, Russia and Syria. Morgan said “Maybe it’s easier to negotiate with them.”

Newt said “Think about that statement for a minute.” Newt is the fastest at thinking on his feet than any of them.

=============================================











====== NEWT GINGRICH'S GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS ======


Newt Gingrich understands ... what many of us know to be true ...

America is dangerously close to becoming a Marxist Godless Socialist Second-World nation ...


While in congress, Newt

* Founded the Conservative Opportune Society which met weekly to discuss ideas many of which were adopted by Reagan during his second term supporting the group’s conservative goals on economic growth, education, crime, and social issues.


* Co founded the Congressional Military Reform Caucus and the Congressional Aviation and Space Caucus


* Led charges against the Democrat Speaker of the House Jim Wright


* Became House Minority Whip in 1989


* In 1990, he came up with a paper titled ”Language, a Key Mechanism of Control”, that encouraged Republicans to “speak like Newt” and contained lists of “contrasting words” – words with negative connotations such as “radical”, “sick,” and “traitors” – and “optimistic positive governing words” such as “opportunity”, “courage”, and “principled”, that Gingrich recommended for use in describing Democrats and Republicans, respectively…Now we know why he is so good with words during the debates.


* Gingrich and several other Republicans, in an effort to offer an alternative to Democratic policies and to unite distant wings of the Republican Party came up with a Contract with America which laid out ten policies that Republicans promised to bring to a vote on the House floor during the first hundred days of the new Congress if they won the elections. The contract was signed by Gingrich and other Republican candidates for the House of Representatives. The contract ranged from issues such as welfare reform, term limits, tougher crime laws, and a balanced budget law, to more specialized legislation such as restrictions on American military participation in UN missions. In the November 1994 elections, Republicans gained 54 seats and took control of the House for the first time since 1954.


* Congress fulfilled Gingrich’s Contract promise to bring all ten of the Contract’s issues to a vote within the first 100 days of the session


* Legislation proposed by the 104th US Congress included term limits for Congressional Representatives, tax cuts, welfare reform, and a balanced budget amendment, as well as independent auditing of the finances of the House of Representatives and elimination of non-essential services such as the House barbershop and shoe-shine concessions.


* Newt led the Republican majority to an re-election in 1996, the first time Republicans had done so in 68 years, and the first time simultaneously with a Democratic president winning re-election.


* In 1996, Newt pushed for the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act which was intended to reconstruct the welfare system. The act gave state governments more autonomy over welfare delivery, while also reducing the federal government’s responsibilities. It instituted the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, which placed time limits on welfare assistance and replaced the longstanding Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. Other changes to the welfare system included stricter conditions for food stamp eligibility, reductions in immigrant welfare assistance, and recipient work requirements. The said act was signed into law on Aug 22, 1996.


* Pushed Clinton for a Federal Balanced Budget- The plan included a total of $152 billion in Republican sponsored tax cuts over five years. Other major parts of the spending plan called for $115 billion to be saved through a restructuring of Medicare, $24 billion set aside to extend health insurance to children of the working poor, tax credits for college tuition, and a $2 billion welfare-to-work jobs initiative. Plan was to have a balanced budget by 2002 but was achieved in 1999, three years ahead of schedule.


* Through the Contract with America, Gingrich was credited with the largest Capital Gains Tax Cut in US History with the 1997 US Tax Relief Act
