Waging War on the Trifecta of Tyranny

Comment

As a six-time undefeated middleweight world karate champion, I have a pretty good idea what makes a warrior. And there's presently one particular presidential candidate in the political ring who wears those gloves better than the others.

It's one thing to enter a ring with a single opponent, but what if you had to enter with three — one candidate with unlimited money and two titans of political swing to back him? That is exactly what former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is facing right now.

People see Newt's primary GOP opponent as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, but I don't. I think the battle is with Romney's and his cronies' staggering wealth. Last week, The Washington Post exposed that there are 41 mega-rich individuals who bankroll Romney's campaign and his purchase of the seat in the Oval Office: "Nearly a dozen of the donors have contributed $1 million or more. ... Some of Romney's biggest supporters include executives at Bain Capital, his former firm; bankers at Goldman Sachs; and a hedge fund mogul who made billions betting on the housing crash."

In Florida, for example, they collectively spent $15.4 million to run about 13,000 negative ads against Newt (not Obama). Compare that with the 200 ads that Gingrich's campaign ran. Romney's campaign spent more on ads in Florida alone than John McCain spent during his entire presidential run. Given that monstrous media assault, I was actually pleasantly surprised Newt received more than 500,000 votes, compared with Romney's 700,000.

Newt's second major opponent is the mainstream media, or MSM. All it takes is a quick flip through the major network channels to hear the pro-Romney accolades and defenses being offered via a variety of news anchors.

For example, after Newt spanked (with great audience fanfare) CNN anchorman John King at the South Carolina presidential debate for asking Newt to defend himself against his ex-wife's accusations on ABC, CNN sent in its veteran bulldog, Wolf Blitzer, to host the Florida debate.

The next day, after his full-court press against Newt before a national audience, Wolf was on CNN gloating over his victory over Newt. Wolf said, "I was ready for him. ... I wasn't going to let Newt get away with that again" — "that" being Newt's ability to shut down the power grid of the MSM. So much for unbiased hosting and objective media!

And it's no coincidence that radically left progressive globalist and billionaire George Soros, according to Fox News, wields his finances and pulls the strings in more than 30 major puppet outlets, including The New York Times, The Associated Press, The Washington Post, NBC and ABC. It's also no coincidence that Soros likes Romney just as much as he does Obama. During a recorded television interview, Soros said, "Between Obama and Romney, there isn't all that much difference."

The MSM would have us believe that the GOP contest is over and Romney is the winner. But the battle has just begun. Newt was absolutely correct when he stated before the Nevada caucuses, "This race is not anywhere near over.

There are 46 states to go." As Joseph Farah — CEO of WorldNetDaily, one of the few sources I trust for news — said on Sean Hannity's Fox News Channel show last week, "nobody has 100 delegates yet. We are not even one-tenth of the way to the end of the GOP election."

Perhaps a word about the power of the MSM from Thomas Jefferson is apropos here: "The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers."

The third enemy of Newt's is the entrenched GOP establishment — a part of what Newt calls the Washington elite. Those in the establishment loathe Newt not because of what he's done, but because he is a lethal threat to their way of life and existence, namely their political control and sway over your money and tax dollars.

When the establishment types saw Newt's colossal win in the South Carolina primary, they scurried to bring forth a few of their kingpins, such as Bob Dole and John McCain, to try to convince us Newt is a danger to us, too. The Boston Globe even ran an article titled "GOP insiders rise up to cut Gingrich down to size."

Newt retorted at a tea party gathering in central Florida by stating categorically, "The Republican establishment is just as much an establishment as the Democratic establishment, and they are just as determined to stop us."

Dan Schnur, a former GOP campaign strategist who teaches politics at the University of Southern California, put it straight: "The Republican establishment might not be wild about Mitt Romney, but they're terrified by Newt Gingrich."

Rush Limbaugh reacted to the frightened squirms of the GOP establishment by saying: "Newt doesn't act like he's got any fear. ... Finally, somebody's telling the bad guys who they are, what to do and that we're not going to take it anymore (just as Reagan did). ... Newt has thrown this thing into a tizzy."

While Romney decries that he is not a Washington insider, it is amazing to me that he gloats over the roughly 72 Washington elites who endorsed him, compared with Newt's 11. Rather than a badge of honor, that's a thorn of shame. How do they say it, birds of a feather flock together? I have only to remind you of the tea party's initial receptivity in Washington, which was not exactly like an actual tea party.

I'm reminded of the wisdom of Samuel Adams: "If ever the Time should come, when vain & aspiring Men shall possess the highest Seats in Government, our Country will stand in Need of its experienced Patriots to prevent its Ruin."

If it's true that you always can tell one's positions by the enemies he has — and I believe it is — then Newt is exactly where he needs to be, battling the trifecta of tyranny: Mitt's treasuries, the MSM and the GOP elite.

One cannot, in any way, underestimate the grisly enormity of this triple-headed monstrosity. It is a goliath of ginormous proportions. And let there be no doubt: Only heaven and earth combining their forces will overcome this gargantuan foe.

Thomas Paine was correct: "Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered."

Thanks, again, Chuck. Again, this may come down to a post-election suggestion but in any event, it will be interesting to see who among BHO's opponents remains most prominent on the media's hate/hit list. As the Lord said in John 15:18 "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." That's the kind of national leader that is needed.

Chuck really needs to back off this pro-Newt agenda. Newt cannot beat Obama in the general election. Newt attacks Romney just as much, only he attacks him using left-wing arguements like attacking his record at Bain capital. You can't single Mitt out because he is wealthy and has wealthy supporters. ALL politicains are wealthy and have wealthy supporters. And Mitt also donates milltions to charity, more than Gingrich, Obama, and every other serious political figure combined in terms of percentage. Its surprising that Chuck, being a pinnacle of morality and charity, would favor a candiate like Gingrich, who has a habit of trading in his wives for younger, prettier models.

Newt is an odd choice, even for an er, interesting, pundit like Chuck. Notice that Newt attacks Mitt for his work at Bain Capitol, but Newt has not made one proposal to change the rules for vulture capitol to prevent their job-destroying excesses. Newt, I suspect, does not actually want to do anything to reign in the job and pention destroying actions of Mitt's buddies; he certainly hasn't said anything to suggest otherwise. If you are wondering where wall street stands in all of this, follow the money. Mitt, not Obama, is now their man.

Ha! The billion dollars Obama has in his warchest come from Wall Street. Banks have gotten much richer since Obama took office. The corperate powers want Obama to stay, cause they know much of government spending is coming their way.
And Bain capital did not come in and loot dying corperations. They tried to save them. Staples, The Sports Authority, and Dominos were all turned around by Bains work. Yes, they layed people off, but only to make the companies more effective and survive. They saved the jobs of the people that didn't get layed off. It was a high risk-high reward busniness and Mitt played the game well and got rich. Everyone in Washington is rich, at least he didn't use his political position to get there.

As far as I know, the pope has not put Obama's name on the short list for sainthood. Yes, he has been the darling of the banking crowd. That was then, this is now. The vast majority of money donated by wall street in the last year has gone to Mitt while wall street donations to Obama have pretty well dried up. If you like having wall street call the shots, Mitt is clearly your man.

After what Obama did to the Catholic hospitials, Obama is probably pretty low on the Pope's list, but thats another story. You act like Obamas bank and Wall St catering days are over. Why? Obama has a billion dollars. Thats more than Mitt will ever get. Everyone on the presidential stage (save RP) will cater to Wall street. They can't loose either way.
