This is a fantastic clip from Newt taking Obama to task for, as he says, surrendering twice yesterday in the Koran burning situation:
That’s fierce. Way to put things in perspective Newt.

This and his remarks yesterday about energy policy and gas prices have me rethinking my vote for Santorum next Tuesday. I like the fact that he is now attacking Obama instead of infighting with the other GOP candidates. He has always been the most intelligent candidate. Now he needs to channel his intelligence toward solutions.
I would not be surprised to see a Newt resurgence in time for Super Tuesday.
You want solutions? Here are solutions.
Newt possesses a towering intellect. He has a clear mastery over the issues. what I would not give to see him leading this pack. Romney is a desultory candidate who lacks everything one seeks in a leader. I really like Rick. I would take him in a heartbeat over Romney. But Newt is the man for this place at this time…if ever there was an alignment of the circumstances that calls for his leadership it is most certainly now !!!!
I like Santorum well enough, but he’s not the brassy, hard-nosed SOB that Newt is. He’s a scout leader. Great guy, and yes, I’d vote for him, but I think Newt has the track record in Washington that shows he can actually get things done and the years to prove he knows how the world works. He’s a politician, not a savior, but that’s what we’re electing after all.
Freakin’ Ron Paul made a mockery of Santorum at the debate. He was bested by a fool! (I actually yelled FOOL at my screen when RP said Iran wasn’t a threat because they didn’t say they want to build a bomb.)
I’d like this twice if I could (a Paul/Romney Bot would know how to do this).
Santorum is a great guy but he needs to age another cycle or two. Maybe a good VP pick but maybe not for getting independents.
Me too….how do you “like” something twice 🙂 ??
Like, like ,like. See! 🙂
Each time Newt has focoused on solutions and artuclated his bold plans he has risen in the poles. Unfortuantely he was distracted in Iowa and Florida by Romney’s attacks. In trying to defend himself he chose to attack Romney which backfired on him. Newt has always been the smartest guy on the stage with the best solutions and boldest plans. He is also the one who has the best record of turning Washington upside down for the benefit of the American people. I’ve been in Newt’s camp form the beginning & will stay there because I firmly believe he is the right person for the task at hand at this time.
Come over to the darkside. We have cookies, and we definitely have more fun.
Personally, I think Newt is a self serving scum bag. I hated his attack on Romney’s wealth and how he was involved in capitalism to get it. However, Santorum really disappointed me the last debate. “I took one for the team”. Uh, jackass, we don’t want a team player that thinks party first. I want someone who will go against the grain for the country and people before the party. That made me rethink my support for him, and Newt is back on my radar. Don’t really want Romney at all.
Darned right! Remember WHICH country you are president of, Mr. President.
Yes, there should be an apology – we’re not actively trying to tick people off – but the bending over and kissing the sandals is revolting. Let’s focus on our own first.
Sovereign nations are an annoying obstacle to the globalists. Fermented ideologies like islam serve their purpose far better.
Steprock you make your point well !!!
How about the Somali pirates that killed four Americans giving out Bibles? Never heard a thing from Obama. If Reagan were in office he would have sent Navy SEALS to take those bastards out!
It’s the one thing I liked about Trump – he said it was stupid for the United States of America to worry about a bunch of pirates. All it would take is a few cutters and the problem would be taken care of.
It’s asinine! The British had a pirate problem and they fixed it by hanging them from the nearest yard arm. Drop the civilized BS and sink them, then shell any safe harbor. Done. They had best have nightmares and cold sweats at the very thought of attacking any ship that flies an American flag. That’s one of the great things about BEING an American! I’m an Army brat. I know.
They have neutered our great country. They have turned us into a nation of navel gazers. I would rather it be a naval gazer as our navy pound the crap out of and crushed the swine responsible. This president brings dishonor and shame to the presidency.
Yep! Great point.
Further evidence of how lame and ineffective Maobama (the muslim?) is.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Newt Gingrich is a regular visitor to TRS. Wonder what name he’s using.
Too funny… that’s a very interesting point. Sober_Thinking? 😉
🙂 TRS and commentors are way ahead of the politicians. All ya gotta do is wake up one day to the reality that what is at stake is not political careers, but our liberty and our Constitution. That the enemy is not a donkey or and elephant, but Government itself. That the press is not free but merely a self imposed state media.
I love it … hahahaha !!!!! Which one of us is he really. I wish I were he but alas I’m not.
Well, your not Newt and I’m not Newt. That eliminates two of us, it’s a start.
Thank you for this post. Newt is the man with a passion for this country. He will garner the respect that USA needs through out the world. He already is respected by my most people who are weak & afraid to confront the enemy.
This man truly is the Commander & Chief we need. He is fearless. His core is completely American made. He is the smartest person in the room. No doubt about it. He needs sites like this to post more of his meetings, and events.
Right Stuff you have the potential to become the “go to sight” by all conservatives if you present every candidate fairly.
good job Newt focusing on Obama. People thinking you would be able to take him to task and beating him is what got you highest RCP national poll average of all the candidates at one point in this race.
He kept doing that at the debate, I think. He skirmished with Mitt, but focused it back on Obama. Attacking this failed President and occasionally lashing out at the obvious bias of the MSM is what wins him points with the electorate.
They already know about his personal issues and have gotten over it by now.
Newt still rocks the House! Great video.
This would be great but Sarah said it first. I also think he’s gone to her on energy policies as well.
If so, can’t we be glad that someone who is running is taking that kind of input and putting it to use?! If Sarah said it first, does that mean she’s the only one who gets to say it? I don’t think that’s how I want someone like Sarah to be “used.” (for lack of better word) I get frustrated when the GOP ignore Rush & all of his sage wisdom. In Newt, we have someone who actually may listen to Sarah (and/or Rush) and then acts upon it. Why does that make him less qualified or good for saying it?
Yes, I’m glad Newt is listening. Sarah was on Hannity the other night and mentioned she thought the candidates should focus more on energy independence. Newt was in “the green room” and when he came out, the first thing he talked about was energy (giving Sarah kudos for bringing it to his attention). He’s been on it from that point forward. Smart move.
All I’m saying is, that for one who is supposed to be so dumb, all these supposed smart guys always seem to say pretty much verbatim what she’s already said or written. Just want to see some credit going to where it’s due now and then.
I agree that SP was framed as the “village idiot” and it somehow stuck – completely ridiculous and unfair and untrue, obviously. I see your point, but Newt often gives SP credit and is frequently referencing her and giving her praise for her vision and intellect. Maybe you’ve missed it. I’ll see if I can find some clips if you need them. Regardless, Newt is the one running and I’m sure SP doesn’t require a credit for every thought she’s ever expressed. There’s a likelihood too that he had the same thought/idea but didn’t get it in front of a camera as quickly as she did.
A least one of the candidates is reading PALIN’s posts. This is an easy shot for all four of the candidates to take at Obama. Why didn’t they take it?
Politicians do not even think this way. They never react on core principles because they do not have any. Their triage on anything like this is: What is the politically correct position?, is there a way I can avoid taking a position?, let me see if someone else will stand up first so I can criticize them.
The koran is not merely “radical islamist material”. It is the mother lode.
No doubt, it is the HOW-TO MANUAL for islamofascism.
See? NEWT INSPIRES.
After Santorum’s flaccid debate showing this week, I’m hoping NEWT surges.
I like Rick, but I need Newt to be president.
Rick supporters don’t feel like the loan ranger. They did it to Newt in Flordia. Any threat to the establishment RINO Romney’s chance of winning deligates and the attack is on. That’s why I’d love to see a “team effort” form Rick & Newt if it were possible. Imagine all those real conservative votes being combined. That might just blow Mittens out of the race. Wouldn’t it be grand?
Yes! A conservative alliance to SMASH the unholy alliance of Paul and Mitt.
I would love to hear the whole speech. Does anyone have a link?
I will also search for one and post if I find.
Now that right there is a Churchill moment. Go back in time and read the speeches by Churchill right before the 2nd world war and the speechs by Neville Chamberlain and you have exactly, to a tee, what is happening here in America. Newt and Santorum are Churchill warning all of us of the impending dooom and Obama is the Chamberlain constantly trying to appease the bully with lies and arrogance to the American people.
you comment reminded of this one I saw over on AtlasShrugs today:
“I was born, raised, suffered, and continue to live with the aftershocks of Trudeau’s socialist swampland experiment called Canadian multiculturalism, and as I look at the U.S. even I say My God.”
Amen, as much as us Canadians do not want to admit it. As goes America, Canada is not far behind. Like a marriage, there is nothing wrong with the myth of multiculturalism as long as everyone buys into it. Multiculturalism was great for 70-80 years but then came the Islamists who used our own multicultural society to gain inroads as a 5th column into both the USA and Canada. If not for the Harper government Canada would be much worse off then the USA right now. Thank god for Harper, I say!
Nothing wrong with multiculturalism as long as the multi-cultures become part of America and get to know and love our country.
Thanks RS for this post. It would be a Huge mistake to let this man, Newt Gingrich slip through our hands and let Romney run away with this election. Newt isn’t liked because he doesn’t carry water for lackey’s….AKA: RINOs= the Establishment. Thus, he got the boot.
This man learned under Ronald Reagan, Newt hasn’t left the Republican party, the party left Newt. Sarah and Newt are two in one, the same. Both have the same quality’s and both are equally scorned VIA: the Establishment, a natural alliance would be an understatement.
It’s sad day’s in America, when we have our Media picking our candidates. ~DOOM~
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
amen amen amen
I love your posts sDee. Thanks for your boldness and inspiration!
Wow, that was great. Where did you get your inspiration from?
Like one of our friends pointed out on here yesterday, when is Ba-roke going to apologize for the burning of Bibles in Afghanistan?
Military burns unsolicited Bibles sent to Afghanistan
I wonder why TRS didn’t feel the need to at least mention in his commentary that Palin tweeted this sentiment hours before Newt addressed it.
I do not know, but am hoping the time is near that Sarah knocks Newt and Rick’s heads together and we got on with stopping Romney.
Right, they need a Jethro Gibbs slap.
I have noticed that in general Newt and Sarah think an awful lot alike. (Drill Baby Drill came from an earlier Newt motto “Drill here, drill now”).
I don’t believe (in case you were intimating) that Newt plucked this commentary from Sarah. I have watched several older videos of Newt defending Sarah’s opinions. He agrees with her – he wasn’t simply defending “Republican.” Sarah and he BOTH have experienced the fury of the R establishment crowd. Not two peas in a pod, but amazingly close.
ps. Sarah’s comment would have likely been a headline were she running for President right now.
Has anyone else mentioned this? If so, I haven’t seen or heard about it. We need someone like Newt who will speak up, speak out and demand respect from everyone around the world.
I’m not surprised at all to see Newt stand up for our soldiers and confront the evil in the WH. Newt doesn’t hold his finger up to see which way the wind is blowing first. He speaks for justice, and no one I know can excoriate Obama, and tell him where he can put his asinine behavior!
Thank you, and God bless you, Newt.
GO NEWT 2012!!!
Out of all 4 candidates, Newt is the only one that can take on BHO. More importantly, he will lead this country out of the abyss that this current administration has driven us into. Anyone voting for Romney is voting for BHO. Then again, if Romney is the nominee – where does that leave us?
As for Santorum – I like him, but I don’t think he is ready. He’ll be better as Newt’s VP.
We need to put our votes together and support the either one soon.
The question that I have always asked is “why are they so afraid of Newt” that they have to demonize him? This doesn’t make any sense to me. Are they afraid that he will rock the boat?
I think Rick Santorum would be an excellent VP choice. But it never works out like that, does it?
Just get Allen West in the cabinet. And Sarah Palin would make a lot of people happy, though I’m afraid I’ve gone indifferent on my girl, Sarah.
I like Newt, but his support in the past for individual mandates worries me how effective he can be attacking that in Obamacare. I know he’s flip-flopped on that but that being one of Obama’s most toxic issues, and Newt being handicapped for that worries me some, I think he could argue better than Romney could, but I think Santorum would be best and can carve up Obamacare serve it up on a plate and shove it down Obama’s throat.
I read something(can’t remember where) that pontificated about the reality of the Obama campaign and the lamestream media going out of their way not to bring up Obamacare in the general because it is still so unpopular with the folks. Of course that will help Romney too in a general(if he wins..ugh) so I guess we will have to see. I recall at the State of the Union that Obama never once mentioned his baby Obamacare..so maybe there is something to it.
I think all sides are afraid that he would be as effective as Reagan at using the bully pulpit. The way he gets to the core of the issue with simple to understand pictorial language, would bring the public on his side of an issue. The media, as well as congressmen and senators would be hard pressed to demonize his platform and ideas in that position, he would pull them along kicking and screaming like Reagan.
There is no such thing as “Radical Islam.” Radical Islam is an oxymoron. Islam is Islam and that’s it. In the words of a young canibal friend of mine who just got back from the 7th century pest hole that is Afghanistan: “No one can help those people. Islam IS the problem. We should just leave and nuke the place on the way out”.
Sobering and accurate.
The are two steady states in an islamic country: brutal dictatorship or brutal sharia theocracy. Everything else is a state of transition.
In Muslim countries, Islam IS the state, and Sharia IS the law of the land. The greatest of deceivers rules as prince over all in the Islamic dellusionary existence that these people live in.
Funny you should mentions nukes. I was thinking just the other day about what kind of force we should use against the Iranians. It’s not to early to talk about this. I mean they have given us a good reason for an attack and, like Obama’s little boy Rohm always says, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.
Then I recalled the Neutron Bomb, that’s the one Jimmy Carter liked:
“Also called ENHANCED RADIATION WARHEAD, specialized type of small thermonuclear weapon that produces minimal blast and heat but which releases large amounts of lethal radiation. The neutron bomb delivers blast and heat effects that are confined to an area of only a few hundred yards in radius. But within a somewhat larger area it throws off a massive wave of neutron and gamma radiation, which can penetrate armor or several feet of earth.”
I think a hundred of these would send the right to Islam. We could rename it the “Islamabomb.” You can fire such weapons from modest sized artillery– 8″/200mm. They Navy could deliver the shells before lunch from destroyer in the Persian gulf and Obama could write the apology.
I think I’m starting to like the neutron bomb approach- they’re just a lot more personal than Bunker Busters and nuclear warheads.
“… and Obama could write the apology.” LMAO!
He does it so well, he’s had so much practice.
‘Islamabomb – WFM
Ha, I love the name. Enter another one into the lexicon.
The only problem I can see in your scenario… are there enough virgins up there to go around?
Sure. Virgins –that’s what they tell you just before you pull the pin on your vest…
Would that be an IAB?
We opted not to make neutron bombs and we’re fresh out of 200mm howitzers, We gave them all away. I believe the last 8 inch unit replaced their M110’s with 109’s (Paladins) back in the early 90’s.
Great idea, but we would need to build those weapons first. That 100 megaton air dropped nuke that Herr Ayatollah Ali Obama just had destroyed would have been more than sufficient, depending on wind speed and direction to take out Afghanistan and the western Paki provinces too.
What are you going to do, when Ob knocks on your door, and wants to destroy your gun?
Which has to do with what exactly? Can you do better than a monosyllabic nonsensical response? Or is the subject matter discussed here just over your head?
Just like ballistics are way over your head. Ob is destroying American weapons, from the top down. Did you object, in any way, when the big bomb was dismantled? I opine not.
We had an 8″ SP in our front yard that would lift you off your bunk when lit and a beautiful 175mm across the street that sprayed unburnt cordite on the tin roof of the hooch. Sounded like manna from heaven on a dark night in An Loc. Guess I’m a little dated in my arty, Infidel. Thanks for the update!
OMG. That sounds beautiful. I trained on the 175 and 8″. Spent three years as a No2 man in an 8″ Battery as part of the old 3rd Armored Division. Nuclear arty was our business as we were (in the Cold War against the Soviets) at the tip of the spear. That type of weapon came in real handy in 1973 when the Soviets started moving their heavy armor towards the “Neutral Zone” and pushed their border posts inside the DMZ in Fulda.
Prettiest thing I ever saw was a 424 round, Charge 7 White Bag that was fired with wet powder. The whole ground shook, the ground actually cracked and the flame that shot out at night must have been visible for many clicks. That was pure power on display.
One other thought comes to mind. Firing a nuke from a howitzer is a suicide mission. Even with a “RAP” projectile, the crew is still too close to the impact area. Back when I was a No2 man on an M110 (200mm/8in) we would practice such scenarios and we figured out that we were way too close to the impact area 16,800 meters away. A rocket-assisted projectile would impact 30,000 meters away. Still too close, especially if the wind shifted suddenly. Air dropped munitions are much better.
If I’m not mistaken we got rid of all our artillery-born nukes. They were all the rough eqivalent of a Hiroshima bomb.
Just a little info for ya. :p)
Hey guys, you heard of ‘Drone’?
I was responding to old outdated info with actual experience and knowledge. What are you talking about? You seemed to have missed the point.
Sorry, I was talking about guns, you seem to be talking about all the fireworks you may or may not have seen. A drone will carry anything, better and further than artilliary. Yeah, shooting a cannon is fun, but if you want really want to send some ordinance, you use airborne power, just like the man said. But, no matter what you use, the marines still have to clean up the mess, with rifles and pistols .
Drones are a seperate issue. We were talking about something else. Your comments in light of the subject matter being discussed, are absurd. You wouldn’t be a liberal would you? Never assume anything about folk. You’ll only make an arse out of yourself. My last MOS was 11C40 what was yours? And that was a migration from 13Fox and 13 Bravo. So either provide a better data set than mine and stick to the points that were being laid in this discussion or go to another thread as the topic seems way over your head.
Hopefull, with a big one, to take out the oil fields, 2.
WTF are you talking about?
Sorry you do not understand English.
So how many times did you fail reading comprehension in school again?
You tell ’em Newt!
Can you imagine what Newt would do to Barry in an actual debate between the two of them? Get the media out of the room and let the two of them explore issues of actual importance and not this silliness we’ve seen so far. Independents would surely see the lies and arrogance of Obama contrasted with gravitas and boldness of Gingrich.
That’s great and awesome! Anyone have a link to the whole speech?
I also just heard his 30 minute talk on energy? It was perfect! Here is the link:
Full speech about 30 mins.
Dittos to BT… Thanks
I got that in my e-mail this morning as well. It’s worth the 30 minutes to listen to it. And he did it without a teleprompter or notes.
I’m glad you spoke out Newt, the only ANNOUNCED candidate to do so at this posting! But I have to tell you, Mr. Speaker, that Sarah Palin blasted his a$$ YESTERDAY, shortly after Obama spoke!
Why does it take so long for those actively SEEKING the office of President to speak out? How is it that she instinctively knows what to say and when to say it while the others are still ‘drafting’ their remarks?
Once again, Sarah Palin leads from the front and the others just follow along after. Yet another reason that the four leftovers aren’t capturing the publics attention.
It’s all good. Consider that Newt is a bit busy running a major campaign. Even though Palin hasn’t endorsed Newt, it is easy to see she supports him and this clip is one reason why. Husbands who are as close to their wives as Todd Palin is don’t just “go rogue” with their endorsements. He delivered and I don’t care who said it first … and I am a Palin fan.
Newt doesn’t mince words.
He sure minced O!
Hide your face in shame all who voted for the first Muslim President.
It’s not very complicated. Think of the Duck Theory: “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it is a duck”
The Muslim Theory: If he was born a Muslim, celebrates holidays and dinners with Muslims, supports The Muslim Brotherhood, bows down to a Muslim King, and quotes from “The Holy Koran”, then he is a Muslim.
Elementary my dear Watson.
Yall… Watch the highlights from the debate Tues!
I did this morning when I got off work. It was so good.
Made me sleep like a baby all day.
Like others have said on this site before….the thought of Newt as President gives a feeling of security and HOPE.
Thanks for the link. I listened to the debate but it was great to hear the “adult in the room” schooling everyone with solid (and cheerful) responses.
I hope he is serious about returning power to the states because my biggest worries about him revolve around his statements that he is a Wilsonian progressive. I don’t want him reverting to the big gov’t mentality.
I will be happy to vote for Santorum or Newt and, in fact, he might just be the pit bull we need. 🙂
That was priceless!
I have been praying and believing that Newt would rise again. After his defeat in Florida, I was depressed, but when he spoke afterward..I was inspired again. I just knew that he would come back. He has been dismissed and cast aside and all the pundits who have a short memory said he was out for sure…well Newt is doing what he does best..rising from the ashes.
He has the determination to get whatever he puts his mind to done.
Just another one of his many “PRESIDENTIAL” qualities!!
This is what a president is supposed to sound like. Nobody else in the GOP race can equal Newt in his breadth of knowledge and ability to communicate in clear concise statements. The man is brilliant … and is the only one who could enter the WH running.
All the rest … but especially Santorum would be doing on the job training, and would thus be open to establishment manipulation on a massive scale.
Yup folks – this is the guy who’s carrying the big stick. I’ve got no major problems with Rick Santorum, but Newt is the only one who consistently takes it to Barry, calls out the right enemy and provides a solution.
I found it interesting that the day after the last debate, Billo in his diatribe (I mean monologue), said that during the debate not one, NOT ONE, candidate brought up any of the major issues against Obama. I guess he just didn’t notice Newt (I know, they are in the tank for Romney).
Also, after the debate, one of the leftie analysts said Newt did a pretty good job ‘but, of course, wasn’t in the center seat‘. WHAT! So only the center seat meant anything to them?
I noticed that as well, I actually threw my daughter’s stuffy at the t.v….er not my most mature moment, but to be so obtuse and blindly rant about how no one took it to Obama, got my blood a’boiling!
I took the opposite approach – I hugged my blankey just a little tighter.
j/k. I spend way too much time cleaning drinks off my TV 🙂
Wowee scowee! Lots of great posts on this page from great folks.
Newt. He’s the rootinest, tootinest, Newtonist, shootinest, scootinest, high-falootinist, barack-butt bootinest… Aaahahahaha.
Shut up Rs. OK.
No, keep going. You’re darn-tootin’ (uh…est) 🙂
Rs, you da rooty kazooinest!
When Perry dropped out of the race I then supported Newt. He has the wisdom and knowledge to lead our country during these troubled times. I like Santorum as well, especially his stand on the social issues, and if he is the nominee I will support him.
I’ve been contemplating the idea for sometime now that Newt is quietly waiting in the wings, for a third comeback.
Get ’em cowboy! Way to go Newt.
I believe it is time to install the Peace of Carthage, to this wayward, and hospitable country. Burn and salt the poppy fields. Pull out of Kabul to a distance of 30 miles, which is just beyond the horizon level of the Earth, and napalm Kabul, starting with Karzai’s residence.
Go Newt! It was exciting to hear him in person in WA state…We had a good crowd and we are all very excited for Newt!
Newt is the only man in this race with a good game plan…
I agree with Newt’s premise, but I disagree about demanding an apology. We will never get an apology from any so-called moderate Muslim for their religion causing the burning down of churches full of people. I say we should just laugh at them and say we have nothing to apologize for. Take your bassackwards thinking and shove it up your arse.
