This is a Revolution, not a Revolving Door

January 27, 2012 Leave a comment

Excerpted from “Newt Ramps up Rhetoric”. This is what it takes to win a revolution:
Newt Gingrich lashed out at Mitt Romney in Mount Dora Thursday, saying the former Massachusetts governor is guilty of lies, desperation and hypocrisy that should make “every American angry.”
“I am running for president to represent you, not to represent the Washington lobbyists, not to represent Goldman Sachs, not to represent the people who have been ruining this country,” Gingrich said. “And I need your help.”
Accompanied by his wife Callista, the North Lake Tea Party-endorsed candidate received cheers as he vowed to shake up the Washington establishment.
“Remember, the Republican establishment is just as much as the Democratic establishment, and they are just as determined to stop us,” Gingrich said.
“We were drowned in a sea of mud in Iowa,” he said. “Mud paid for with special-interests money, money paid for by lobbyists in Washington and a candidate who was willing to say anything and do anything because he is so desperate to be president that he doesn’t think that the truth matters.
“But, I’m here as a citizen. I frankly don’t care what the Washington establishment thinks of me, because I intend to change them.”
“He [Romney] owns a Goldman Sachs subsidiary, which is foreclosing on Floridians,” Gingrich said.
“Michael Reagan has endorsed me,” Gingrich said of the son of President Ronald Reagan. “In 1995, at the Goldwater Institute, Nancy Reagan said that Ronald Reagan’s torch had been passed to me as speaker of the House and that I was carrying the values he believed in.”
“During that entire period, Mitt Romney was a money-making Independent,” Gingrich said. “He had no interest in politics; he wasn’t involved in helping save the country.”
He added that in 1992, Romney gave money to the Democrats running for Congress, and voted in the Democratic presidential primary for Paul Tsongas, “the most liberal candidate.”
“This is a man (Romney) who questions my credentials as a Reagan aide?” Gingrich said. “This is the kind of gall they have to think we’re so stupid and we’re so timid? That we’ll let somebody who voted for Paul Tsongas. In 1994, (Tsongas) was running to the U.S. Senate to the left of Teddy Kennedy. Do you know how hard it is to run to the left of Teddy Kennedy?”
“I don’t think Gov. Romney could last in a debate with Barack Obama,” Gingrich said. “We need a solid conservative who can stand there and look straight in the eyes of the president and say ‘Mr. President, you are wrong and your policies are fake.”
Several in audience responded by chanting in unison: “Taxed enough already.”  “I promise you,” Gingrich added, “I am going to fight every day to the end until we win this nomination.”

We need a candidate who is truly hated by the Establishment Elite on the left and the right. Only that kind of fire in the belly can burn out the incestuous Washington establishment on both sides of the aisle. Sarah Palin was and is that hated. Herman Cain was hated as much as they dared hate a black man.

Newt is clearly hated, but he has the strength to stand up to it. He has already been to heck and back in Washington so he does not fear them. He knows the enemy by personal name. He knows what they are. He does not need their approval. He needs their destruction. So do we.


We need an experienced fighter on our side

Some have said Newt is too angry to win.  Frankly, anyone not angry is out of touch with what is going on.  We need a president who understands and cares enough to be angry.  We need a fighter.
Everyone is flawed in some way – but that doesn’t mean they cannot be great, necessary, and even vital to our future.

Where are the 1%?

“It only takes $34,000 per person to be amid the richest 1% of people in the world.

Clearly, the US has created more financially OK people than almost the whole rest of the world combined. How many of the people who are rich in these other countries are dependent on the US market or US defense expenditures? If America falters a lot of wealth will be destroyed world wide.

Happy New Year to You and a Storm Warning for Asia

January 1, 2012 Leave a comment

I hope you have a Happy, Safe and Prosperous New Year ahead.

Unfortunately the Norks will have none of the above in the near term. After the horrendous currency debacle of 2009, Kim Jong Ill had a scapegoat executed and abandoned the economic insanity of their “currency reform”. Kim Jong-eun learned nothing from that disaster:

The latest from Free North Korea Radio:

At 3 PM, Dec. 30, Kim Jong-eun gave an order in the name of late Kim Jong-il saying, “The use of all foreign currencies including dollar and Reminbi will be banned. It warned that the punishment for violation can be as severe as death sentence,” according to our sources.

But they do have a new gold and silver coin, new currency, and a new stamp:

Can starvation and complete unrest be far behind? There is no faster way to foment revolution than this.

Those on the inside loyal to Kim Jong-eun will be given the new currency. Those who challenge him will be killed for using the old currency or will be broke and starving. Suddenly they all face a hard choice: support the brat or die or fight.

The people remember from less than 3 years ago what this means for the masses: starvation. How long before the people imagine roasting that fat pig on a spit?

We have our own challenges here in America, but they pale compared to this. Things will get interesting militarily and economically near China in 2012.
