This is More About The Republican Party Than it is About Gingrich

A good online friend has been firing off blog after blog just ripping Newt Gingrich. I know he reads my stuff and it probably irks him to no end that I am endorsing Newt. If it's any consolation, the reasoning has a lot more to do with a Reagan-Palin-Tea Party view of the Republican party than it does with any deep feelings or loyalty to Newt Gingrich. Only Sarah Palin is the true voice and captain of my ideological wing of the GOP. Without her or any charismatic true conservative in the race, this blogger finds that victory can only be found in the defeat of that which is wrong with America (Obama) and that which is wrong with my party (the GOP establishment).

Shortly after Sarah Palin announced that she would not run, I appeared on the Roderic Deane Show where we had a lengthy discussion about the direction of the Republican Party. It was there that I pointed out the clear contrast between the establishment party of Rockefeller and the people's party of Reagan. I strongly advocated that Constitutional conservatives, Tea Party members, grass roots activists and the rank and file move toward taking back the party.

Mark Levin said on his radio show on 1/25/12 (13:00 mark):
Our first objective has to be removing Obama at the ballot box, hopefully replacing him with the most conservative candidate running in the Republican primary...

I've talked before about the need to change the Republican Party. I'm not the first and I won't be the last.It's the Republican Party that must be the vessel through which we Constitutional conservatives operate. And, it's to the advantage of those who run the Republican Party to allow the Constitutionalists to take it over. Because otherwise, I believe the Republican Party's going to die.

If the Republican Party has no answers for what's going on in the society,then it has no reason to exist. If it's a go along party or a dance around the edges party or even worse, if its politicians say one thing and do another it won't be long when the people have no regard for it whatsoever, including its members. First and foremost, we must reestablish Constitutional government.
The next night, Levin gives context to what is happening with Gingrich and Romney. Read about it here and listen to what he says here (the first hour is worth your time).

What you are seeing is the battle for the Republican Party. The choice is between going with the establishment and supporting Romney or going against the establishment and sending a message that we want our party back by going against Romney. Newt Gingrich is best positioned to be the one to take on Romney and the establishment. As such, we have to push him through even if some of us have to hold our noses doing it.

If either Bachmann or Santorum was where Gingrich is right now and they had the best shot of defeating the establishment, this blogger would be using the same argument for either of them.

This entire election cycle is about taking out the garbage. We can worry about making the room smell fresh again another time. We can think about the thrill of supporting a candidate who we can call our ideological soul mate another time. Right now, we must defeat the Republican establishment and go on to defeat Barack Obama. Take back the party; then take back the country.

If Newt Gingrich wins the nomination and goes on to become president, we can never lose sight that it will be the halls of Congress that will need to be filled with people who agree with Constitutionalist and Tea Party principles. Fear not a Gingrich presidency knowing that the Tea Party is right down the block ready to help him bring our country back to greatness or to stop him from doing something wrong. Newt's smart enough to respect that. Hopefully, he'll be smart enough to know this isn't about him, it's about us. If he listens to us, he will be a successful president. If he doesn't, he'll be "primaried" in 2016.

Either way, it will be a hell of a lot better than what we have now. Therein lies our optimism for America.

Listen to my show Saturday 1/28/12 at 11pm ET 8pm PT on Blogtalk Radio! Special edition.

Writer's note: I was so busy today that it wasn't until after I wrote this post that I found out that Sarah Palin had written an awesome Facebook Note which also talks about the establishment. Read it here.
But this whole thing isn’t really about Newt Gingrich vs. Mitt Romney. It is about the GOP establishment vs. the Tea Party grassroots and independent Americans who are sick of the politics of personal destruction used now by both parties’ operatives with a complicit media egging it on. In fact, the establishment has been just as dismissive of Ron Paul and Rick Santorum. Newt is an imperfect vessel for Tea Party support, but in South Carolina the Tea Party chose to get behind him instead of the old guard’s choice. In response, the GOP establishment voices denounced South Carolinian voters with the same vitriol we usually see from the left when they spew hatred at everyday Americans “bitterly clinging” to their faith and their Second Amendment rights. The Tea Party was once again told to sit down and shut up and listen to the “wisdom” of their betters. We were reminded of the litany of Tea Party endorsed candidates in 2010 who didn’t win. Well, here’s a little newsflash to the establishment: without the Tea Party there would have been no historic 2010 victory at all.
She must be listening to Mark Levin, too.


  1. The GOP Elitists are exactly the way organized labor defines them. That is also how the Tea Party and its muted predecessors have always defined them. We finally have a chance to break the cycle of NWO-Bilderberger-Rockefeller and ablate them from the Rock that is true Conservatism. We have endured many disappointments, and are no longer willing to do so. We have a unique chance to put an end to it this year.

    The rights of humanity, bound to our creator, have been left for us in the exquisitely written documents of our Founding Fathers; the likes of which have never been seen by man in his four million years nor the fourteen billion years since creation. They are precious. They are worthy of our ultimate respect and ultimate sacrifice, if need be. The abomination sitting in the White House, and his wife have not been heard to sing the Star Spangled Banner in public. They are not what America is, was, or hopes to be.

    The Elitists are not limited to Americans, there is no doubt. All of them profit in a bull or bear Market. Make no mistake, It has been blood money. These people believe they are indestructible, untouchable, and of royal blood; some believe themselves to be descendants of a pure and superior bloodline going back to Alexander the Great, back to the 8 Turin god kings of Egypt, and further.

    Elitists have included many famous names and many secret names and societies; all of which have spent many hours proving they have a key and entitled relationship to destiny. All wreak materialistic mayhem wherever they go, and whatever they do.

    To have the Rockefeller Republican Elitists deciding where the nation goes this November makes me sick to my stomach. Mitt Romney is their man. The rest of us don't count and will do what we are told.

    We needn't be toadied into this inferior position any longer. We are The People! Romney must be squashed, or we will be stuck in the miasma of government-by-a-handful until the end. The end will not be pretty. It will be controlled by money, as usual, and will include culling of various peoples and ideas. If Romney isn't stopped in the hearts of my deluded, confused countrymen, the end will approach almost as quickly as if Obama were to steal a second term. As inconceivable a notion as that may be, it may happen. Each would be a total disaster.

    I am fearful of the future of my children and grandchildren, and their children and grandchildren. Parts of my family have been in America since 1638. 13 brothers of part of my family fought and died in the American Revolutionary War. I am this Country. I bleed with each serviceman killed of wounded in any battle anywhere in the world, and am eternally grateful to them.

    I want Newt Gingrich to be my President, not because he is for people dreaming of the Moon, but because he is hated for being smug and disrespectful the Media, is articulate about our Founders, and is not an apparatchik of the Pseudo-Royal Citizenry. it will be our last chance as Republicans and Independents to vote for our God-given Liberty, resoundingly, for someone in the Party that knows from where we come and have the same dreams as our Founders had. If we hesitate, if we balk due to the frailties of Mr. Gingrich, we may lose our voice, our vote, and our beautiful miracle that God has granted us.

  2. Sorry, but no matter how one spins it Gingrich is just as much a part of the Republican establishment as Romney. Both were and are at heart Rockefeller Republicans.
    As the face of the GOP in the 1990s, Gingrich typified everything that was wrong with the Washington establishment, and was a major reason why many, many people--including myself--soured on the politicians in Washington DC and in particular on the GOP. Yes, Gingrich has bold words and a bold vision, but when in power he was inconsistent, erratic, and unprincipled. Apart from his gleeful divisiveness and bullying nature, as Speaker he continually undercut conservatives and the conservative cause in order to gain temporary partisan advantage.
    Inherently, conservatism is about principles. Gingrich typifies the kind of politician who believes that he does not have to keep his word to his constituents and that the end always justifies the means. In this regard, even Romney, for all his legion of faults, is more conservative and more reliable than Gingrich.
    It would be pure partisan hypocrisy for someone such as myself--who was disgusted and appalled by Gingrich's behavior at the time in the 1990s to now, fifteen years later, say that it is all water under the bridge and that, even though Gingrich appears absolutely unchanged in his behavior, we will support him in order to defeat Obama.
    A pox on both their houses.
    Gingrich is part of the problem, and has been part of the problem for many years. Let's not play the part of the hypocrite and pretend that he is the savior simply because he is a master at telling us what we want to hear. The Tea Party was supposed to be about seeing through all that kind of political gamesmanship and restoring the US to a sound footing, fiscally and morally.

    1. Cool. Fair and balanced debate here on the blog.

      John Scotus, if anyone else who is better than Newt moves up in the polls and can defeat Romney and the establishment, I'm going to be there. I'm not spinning and I don't blindly think Newt is the savior. That's why we have a Tea Party. The Tea Party will watch whoever our nominee is and make sure they don't screw this thing up.
