EarsToHear.net endorses Newt Gingrich for President

Three primary reasons:  1. He is the only candidate that can successfully confront Obama and progressives/Marxists. 2. He fully supports the principles of both the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, the Republic for which it stands, State rights and limited federal government, and America's foundational premise, "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God."  3. America's sovereignty, defense, rule of law, and free market enterprise.

Voters must decide, in this present day climate of prevalent progressive left-wing culture of Demarxists, educators, and overwhelming left-wing media, which candidate is able to take on both the Demarxists and Marxist left-wing media. Can Ron Paul, Santorum, or Romney take on these opponents in both the media and during debates with Obama and successfully shine the light on the deceptive, hypocritical, double-standard of Marxism and its selective tolerance, diversity, and Rights that violate “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” I see only one choice. Perhaps Santorum after 4 or 8 years of a Gingrich cleanup, but we must get our foot in the door of the White House first. If it was as easy as throwing a switch, yes then perhaps a less imperfect candidate might be viable, if he or she could overcome the obstacles presented here.

o Ready To Join the Faith Dream Team? By Chuck Norris - I stated a few weeks ago that I believe that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Sen. Rick Santorum have shown the greatest passion for highlighting and fighting against the war on religion (specifically Christianity) being unleashed by the Obama administration and other secular progressives. They are also avid supporters of Israel. However, in light of the potential global clash outside our country with regimes such as those in Iran and Syria and the ongoing domestic assaults within our country from President Barack Obama and his minions, my wife, Gena, and I believe that America needs the best of the best veterans of political war to save our republic (as our Founding Fathers established it) and lead us forward. As I've stated for the record, Gena and I truly believe that Newt's experience, leadership, knowledge, wisdom, faith and even humility to learn from his failures (personal and public) can return America to its glory days. And he is the best man on the battlefield to outwit, outplay and outlast Obama and his billion-dollar campaign machine.

o Newt Gingrich -- the choice of movement conservatives By Tim Dunkin - Looking at the other candidates first, I've previously stated why I don't support Ron Paul, so I won't belabor that point. As for Mitt Romney, I simply do not consider him to be a credible choice for anyone claiming to be in any wise conservative. There is practically no substantive difference between him and Barack Obama. As I observed in another venue a few days ago, "You know, even two years ago, if somebody had told me that the Republican Party was this close to nominating a pro-abortion, pro-gay, tax-raising, anti-gun, pro-government run health care, anti-energy development, global warming believing, anti-religious freedom, pro-wage controls, Medicare-defrauding, Wall Street bailout supporting, left-wing judge nominating socialist, I would have laughed in their face." Yet, the GOP seems to be on the cusp of doing exactly this — and likely dooming itself as a viable major Party from here on out. ...Concerning Santorum, I find him somewhat more acceptable, at least, than I do Mitt Romney. At least when Rick Santorum claims to be socially conservative, to oppose abortion and the radical homosexual agenda, I believe him. The problem is that while he's solid on social issues, he's shaky on fiscal ones. The fact is, Rick Santorum was a big government "conservative" when he was in the Congress and the Senate. He often voted against bills that would have streamlined and eliminated government waste....

o Mark Levin: Gingrich Is Strong Conservative Levin is particularly angry with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, an aggressive Romney supporter. “I was appalled when the two-year governor of New Jersey, who has done absolutely zero for the conservative movement, gets on TV and regurgitates all the ethical bull crap thrown at Newt Gingrich when he was speaker of the House.” Levin’s not too happy about recent criticism of Gingrich from former Sen. Bob Dole, either. “Bob Dole was part of the problem,” he said. An underlying motive drives the GOP criticism of Gingrich, Levin said. “There’s an effort to clear the path for Romney. If [Rick] Santorum was considered a threat, they’d be pulling out quotes from him and turning him into a pretzel too.” It’s self-destructive for Republicans to launch negative commercials about Gingrich rather than focusing on President Barack Obama, Levin said. What’s most important is to defeat the establishment. He had some choice words for Gingrich’s presidential opponent, Mitt Romney. “What was Mitt Romney doing when Newt Gingrich was speaker of the House fighting Democrats? He was running against Ted Kennedy as a self-identified progressive.” Levin was referring to Romney’s unsuccessful bid to take former Massachusetts Sen. Kennedy’s seat away from him in 1994. “Newt Gingrich, if he does nothing else, did more for the conservative movement than virtually everyone today who’s criticizing him,” Levin said. To be sure, Gingrich made some mistakes in the past, Levin acknowledged. “I make no excuses for his personal life, which was a mess,” he said. “But he has found his faith now, he has found God. Why would we act like Marxist leftists ourselves, like a bunch of frenzied nut jobs trying to turn this man into something he’s not. We would not have taken back the House of Representatives but for Newt Gingrich.” As for those criticizing Gingrich, “What the hell did they do to take back the House of Representatives?” Levin said.

o Michael Reagan Endorses Newt Gingrich by Fox News Insider - Newt Gingrich’s campaign released the following statement today from Michael Reagan: I am endorsing Newt Gingrich for President and here’s why: Newt understands that we must reject and fundamentally change the course that Barack Obama has set for America. Newt is our only chance in 2012 to contrast a Reagan conservative with Obama’s European’ styled socialism. Newt exemplifies the conservative principles my father championed. Strong national defense, lower taxes and smaller government.

o South Carolina Message By Thomas Sowell - Mitt Romney's supposed "electability" -- his acceptability to moderates and independents -- has been his biggest selling point. Moreover, he is just the kind of candidate that the Republican establishment has preferred for years: a nice, bland, moderate who offends nobody. ...Whomever the Republicans choose as their candidate is going to have to run against both Barack Obama and the pro-Obama media. Newt Gingrich has shown that he can do that.
       ...Gingrich is not just a guy who is fast and feisty on his feet. He has a depth of understanding of what issues are crucial, experience in how to deal with them and -- almost equally important -- experience in how to shoot down the petty, irrelevant and "gotcha" distractions of the media. Does Gingrich have negative qualities? More than most. Wild statements, alienation of colleagues, reckless gambits. His use of the rhetoric of the left in attacking Bain Capital was a recent faux pas, though one that he quickly backed away from. But if we are serious -- and there has seldom, if ever, been a time in the history of this nation when it was more necessary to be serious -- then we cannot simply add up talking points for or against a candidate. What matters is how that candidate stands on issues that can make or break the future of this country.
        ...The painful reality is that everyone in this year's field of Republican candidates is a gamble. And re-electing Barack Obama is an even bigger gamble. Whichever candidate the Republican voters finally choose from this year's field, they are bound to have reservations, if not fears. Gingrich's worst could be worse than Romney's worst, both as a candidate and as a president. But Gingrich's best is much better than Romney's best. Sometimes caution can be carried to the point where it is dangerous. When the Super Bowl is on the line, you don't go with the quarterback who is least likely to throw an interception. You go with the one most likely to throw a touchdown pass.

o Fearing Newt Gingrich By Matt Barber - Mr. Gingrich’s solid win, coupled with another surge in Florida, has the establishment squealing and darting about like a flaming pot-bellied pig. Massachusetts moderate Mitt Romney’s campaign has trotted out surrogates like Ann Coulter and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to nip at the speaker’s heels. ...Still, RINO Republicans’ fear of Newt Gingrich stems from something entirely different from that which drives the left. The GOP leadership actually believes that he cannot win a general election, while — with a traumatic Reagan presidency still fresh in their minds — left-wing “progressives” know that he can. It’s the liberal media and Democratic National Committee, in fact, that has largely pushed the self-serving “Romney-is-the-inevitable-nominee” meme. ...After last week’s debacle in South Carolina, it’s little wonder that the The Washington Post is reporting Romney will no longer commit to any further Florida debates. He finds himself in a Catch-22: he must either debate and lose to Gingrich or not debate and lose to Gingrich. Guess who else doesn’t want to debate Newt Gingrich? Hint: his initials are BHO. I’ll state the obvious: Newt Gingrich is not a perfect man. Neither is he the perfect candidate. Who is? The question is, do we allow repentance for personal sin? Do we forgive others their trespasses as we wish to be forgiven? ...Our volatile times require a man who will decisively and decidedly lead from the helm. We cannot survive four more years of “leading from behind.” That’s why we need Newt Gingrich.

o The past and the present Thomas Sowell  - If Newt Gingrich were being nominated for sainthood, many of us would vote very differently from the way we would vote if he were being nominated for a political office.   What the media call Gingrich's "baggage" concerns largely his personal life and the fact that he made a lot of money running a consulting firm after he left Congress. This kind of stuff makes lots of talking points that we will no doubt hear, again and again, over the next weeks and months. But how much weight should we give to this stuff when we are talking about the future of a nation? This is not just another election -- and Barack Obama is not just another president whose policies we may not like. With all of President Obama's broken promises, glib demagoguery and cynical political moves, one promise he has kept all too well. That was his boast on the eve of the 2008 election: "We are going to change the United States of America." ...Against this background, how much does Newt Gingrich's personal life matter, whether we accept his claim that he has now matured or his critics' claim that he has not? Nor should we sell the public short by saying that they are going to vote on the basis of tabloid stuff or media talking points, when the fate of this nation hangs in the balance. ...Do we wish we had another Ronald Reagan? We could certainly use one. But we have to play the hand we were dealt. And the Reagan card is not in the deck. ...Those who want to concentrate on the baggage in Newt Gingrich's past, rather than on the nation's future, should remember what Winston Churchill said: "If the past sits in judgment on the present, the future will be lost." If that means a second term for Barack Obama, then it means lost big time.

o EarsToHear.net endorsed Newt Gingrich for these reasons. Mitt Romney (RINO) is fortunate his opponent is a Marxist.... Mitt Romney's Marxachusetts legacy: 1. Allowed Marxachusetts Supreme Court to violate the State's Constitution which clearly prohibits the judicial branch from specifically changing marriage statutes. Romney also personally issued special Governor's one-day marriage licenses to 189 same-sex couples, including to a homosexual activist state senator and others of his personal friends in the homosexual community. 2. Romney supported legislation that nearly doubled taxes for many corporations. 3. Romneycare mandate. 4. More? http://massresistance.org/romney.

o CONSERVATIVE PUNDIT SNIFFS PLAY PILE-ON-NEWT GrassTopsUSA Exclusive Commentary By Don Feder - In a political career spanning 40 years in and out of office, Gingrich made some monumental mistakes. He also had some historic achievements – including producing a Republican majority in the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years and forcing Clinton to submit balanced budgets, cut taxes and reform welfare. Looking ahead to the 2012 general election, Newt has two indispensable attributes: he’s a dazzling speaker, who says things worth quoting, and has the guts to finally throw some light on the cockroaches of the left that are swarming over our republic. Watching Newt in the GOP debates is like seeing Rembrandt at work; the rest do paint-by-numbers. Gingrich answers questions with laser-like precision, cutting through clichés to expose the essence of issues. Even when I thought he had no chance of winning the nomination, for someone who’s spent his life working with words, it was a pleasure to behold a master in action.

..The difference between Newt and Mitt? Newt has a core conservative philosophy which he sometimes misapplies. Mitt has no core philosophy to misapply. Romney, who helped usher in the first-in-the-nation gay marriage law and trailblazed for Obama Care, has no principles – and those are negotiable. Jeff Katz, a popular Boston-area talk-show host, says: “Romney has a lot of experience. He’s been on every side of every issue. The only thing he’s consistent on is the belief that Mitt Romney should be president.” Newt has frequently disappointed or mystified conservatives (although his one-time infatuation with global warming is hard to square with his Drill-Here/Drill-Now campaign) - so have all the rest, except for Michele can't-give-her-book-away.

...Perry has in-state-tuition for illegals (if you oppose it, you don’t have a heart) and Gardasil among his carry-on luggage. In 2004, Santorum supported Arlen Specter for the Republican Senate nomination in Pennsylvania, and, in so doing, gave the Democrats two Senate seats (his own when alienated conservatives turned on him, and Specter’s, when he joined the party where he always belonged). Jon Huntsman has designated himself the RINO-in-waiting, if Mitt falters, and runs to the left of his record as Utah governor.

In 1988, Ron Paul was the Libertarian Party presidential candidate. The Libertarian platform calls for abolishing age-of consent laws and legalizing hard drugs. In its editorial endorsing Newt, The Manchester Union Leader, possibly the most conservative paper in the country, observed: “Newt Gingrich is by no means the perfect candidate. But Republican primary voters too often make the mistake of preferring an unattainable ideal to the best candidate who is actually running. In this incredibly important election, that candidate is Newt Gingrich.”

Resolved: America can’t take a second Obama administration. It will not survive four more years of: Obama Care, class warfare, the free-market/individualism sucks, America is not a Christian nation, purging references to Islam from terrorism training manuals for intelligence agents, gays in the military, refusing to defend DOMA, an endless tsunami of red ink, radical appointments (Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, Kathleen Sabelius, Hillary Clinton, etc., etc.), judicial nominations from living-Constitution Hell, putting the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Egypt, bashing Israel until it’s bloody and reeling, the Occupy Wall Street Movement (the Obama Jugend), nationalizing industry, and using our troops as uniformed social workers (humanitarian interventions) - all resting on a solid Marxist, hate-America base. If you’re waiting for the perfect candidate who could actually win to come along, we could all be in shackles and leg-irons sitting in an Obama reeducation camp by the time he or she arrives.

o No Bows, No Food Stamps, No Alinsky...Aggressive Gingrich Speech Ignites the Right - I believe this campaign comes down to economics including jobs, economic growth, balancing the budget, the value of money. It comes down to national security, what threatens us and what do you have to do about it.  But the centerpiece of this campaign I believe is American exceptionalism versus the radicalism of Saul Alinsky. Well, you know, there's a lot to just doing that because the fact is what we are gonna argue is that American exceptionalism, the American Declaration of Independence, the American Constitution, the American Federalist Papers, the Founding Fathers of America are the source from which we draw our understanding of America. He draws his from Saul Alinsky, radical left-wingers and people who don't like the classical America. ...Let me just say that I believe the debate we're going to have with President Obama over the next eight or nine months, the outlining of the two Americas.  The America of the Declaration of Independence, the America of Saul Alinsky.  The America of paychecks.  The America of food stamps.  The America of independence.  The America of dependence.  The America of strength in foreign policy, the America of weakness in foreign policy.  Those two choices, I believe will give the American people a chance to decide permanently whether we want to remain the historic America that has provided opportunity for more people of more backgrounds than any country in history, or whether in fact, we prefer to become a brand new secular, European-style bureaucratic socialist system.

o Gingrich Coup: Endorsement From NH's Largest Paper  - "We don't back candidates based on popularity polls or big-shot backers. We look for conservatives of courage and conviction who are independent-minded, grounded in their core beliefs about this nation and its people, and best equipped for the job," the editorial said. 

o Gingrich and Immigration By Thomas Sowell - As for Newt Gingrich, his position on immigration is just one of the items in the "baggage" he has to overcome. But what the voters have to overcome is an insistence on a perfect candidate. Ronald Reagan, after all, supported an immigrant amnesty bill, but that did not prevent him from being a great president otherwise. A Republican Congress would be unlikely to make that mistake again, even if a Republican president wanted to. The big question for 2012 is whether Republicans will win Congress and/or the White House. If Democrats win Congress and the White House in 2012, amnesty is virtually certain, along with other disasters.

o Speaking up for dad Gingrich's daughter out to counter misinformation - Like a perverse version of the children's game "telephone," the story has spun out of control, so even some supporters - like the volunteer in Alaska - think Newt Gingrich told his dying wife that he was leaving her for the woman he'd cheated on her with. It is a "vicious lie," the Gingrich campaign says on its website. Jackie Battley Gingrich declines interview requests, but in May, Cushman, a conservative blogger and mother of two, wrote a column, "Setting the Record Straight." It was her mother, not her father, who requested the divorce. Her mother didn't have cancer; the tumor was benign. Gingrich went to the hospital that day so his girls could visit, not to discuss the divorce.

o Retired AFA founder endorses Gingrich Fred Jackson - OneNewsNow - The retired founder of the American Family Association, Rev. Donald E. Wildmon, announced his endorsement today of Newt Gingrich for President of the United States. In making the announcement, Wildmon said "Gingrich recognizes the threat to our country posed by judges and lawyers imposing values upon the country inconsistent with our religious heritage, and has proposed constitutional steps to bring the courts back in balance under the constitution." He added, “We need someone in the White House who can balance the budget and get the economy moving again. Newt is the only candidate who has done it before and I believe he can do it again. I am proud to endorse Newt Gingrich for president.” In welcoming the endorsement, Gingrich said “Don Wildmon has been one of the most important leaders in the country in the battle to uphold our founding principles. I am humbled and honored to have his endorsement.

o Gingrich Defends Marriage As 'Core' of Civilization, Says Bigotry Question 'Goes Both Ways' By Susan Jones - Gingrich also raised the issue of bias in the news media. While homosexual activists blast discrimination against them, what about anti-Christian bigotry? "You don't hear the opposite question asked," Gingrich said. "Should the Catholic Church be forced to close its adoption services in Massachusetts because it won't accept gay couples, which is exactly what the state has done? Should the Catholic Church be driven out of providing charitable services in the District of Columbia because it won't give in to secular bigotry? Should the Catholic Church find itself discriminated against by the Obama administration on key delivery of services because of the bias and the bigotry of the administration? "The bigotry question goes both ways. And there's a lot more anti-Christian bigotry today than there is concerning the other side. And none of it gets covered by the news media." 

o My Endorsement for President By Chuck Norris - In the past few editions of my weekly column, I detailed 10 questions to find our next president, in no particular order of importance. I proposed that the name of the candidate that fills the majority of the answers deserves readers' votes. 1) Who is most committed to follow and lead by the U.S. Constitution? 2) Who has the greatest ability to rally, unify and mobilize citizens across political and societal spectrums? 3) Who has the best working comprehension of America? 4) Who has the best ability to influence a volatile world away from the brink of destruction? 5) Who has clear and present moral fortitude? 6) Who has the best chance of beating President Obama, in and outside of debates? 7) Who has the best abilities to lead Washington politics and politicians? 8) Who has the best plan and leadership ability to restore America's economy? 9) Who is the most fiscally prudent? 10) Who has demonstrated the highest regard for human life? My wife, Gena, and I sincerely believe that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is the answer to most of those questions and deserves our endorsement and votes. ...I'm tired of watching our country be torn to shreds by those who think the answer is more government debt and control. I'm tired of being in bondage to a tax system that robs U.S. citizens as the king of England did before the Revolution. I'm tired of watching our sovereignty be sold by foreign loans and loose borders. And I will not sit back and merely watch this decay and degradation of the U.S. and then hand it over to my children and grandchildren to deal with.
