Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich was inspired by the fact that Newt loves to engage America in War while his Chicken ‘butt’ avoids the fighting.

Note: No Black-collared Hawks were harmed in creating my Photoshop satire of Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich.

In 1985, Newt told Jane Mayer of The Wall Street Journal that “Vietnam was the right battlefield at the right time.” Newt Gingrich was too smart to die and received student and family deferments to avoid military service in Vietnam. In 1962, Newt married his geometry teacher, Jackie Battley when he was 19.

On Nov 22th, 2011, Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich called for replacing the regime in Iran. Newt said he would bomb Iran “Only as a last recourse and only as a step towards replacing the regime… We need a strategy of defeating and replacing the current Iranian regime with minimum use of force…. But if we were serious, we could break the Iranian regime, I think, within a year, starting candidly with cutting off the gasoline supply to Iran, and then, frankly, sabotaging the only refinery they have.” – Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich, CNN National Security Debate, Nov 22, 2011

During the CBS News/National Journal presidential debate on Nov 12th, 2011, Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich said “First of all, as maximum covert operations — to block and disrupt the Iranian (nuclear) program, including taking out their scientists, including breaking up their systems. All of it covertly, all of it deniable. Second, maximum– maximum coordination with the Israelis– in a way which allows them to maximize their impact in Iran. Third, absolute strategic program comparable to what President Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and Margaret Thatcher did in the Soviet Union, of every possible aspect short of war of breaking the regime and bringing it down. And I agree entirely with Governor Romney, if in the end, despite all of those things– the dictatorship persists, you have to take whatever steps are necessary to break its capacity to have a nuclear weapon.”

“It’s worth working with the insurgents in the company to encourage regime change in the country. And if all else fails, if after all of the work we’ve done, there’s nothing else we can do beside mil– take military action, then of course you take military action. It is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon.” -Mitt Romney Nov 12th, 2011
If the transparent ‘secret’ war with Iran fails then Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich is willing to go to war to keep Iran from attaining nuclear weapons.

According to Reuters, the U.N. nuclear watchdog (IAEA) claimed satellite images reveal Iran is working on developing an Atomic bomb. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report released on Nov 8th, 2011 stated that the Director General has been concerned about the possible existence of activities involving the development of a nuclear explosive device in Iran since 2002. In the Annex of the report, the IAEA claims Iran concealed its nuclear activities from 2007 to 2010. Ironically, President Dubya Bush was in office as the IAEA began elevating its concerns and Dubya attacked Iraq for weapons of mass destruction based on false information according to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

Will Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich start a war based on false information? Newt is known for false claims: On May 15th, 2011, Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich made false claims about the fate of a U.S. helicopter during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden during his interview with David Gregory on Meet the Press.

“We’ve learned that for nine and a half years the country, Pakistan, to which we have given $20 billion was apparently hiding him. Now, does any serious person believe that the Pakistani government had no idea bin Laden was sitting there? Does anybody–and notice, by the way, what the intelligence chief has apologized for. He’s apologized for the Americans getting bin Laden. He didn’t apologize for nine and a half years of failing to find him. He didn’t apologize for Pakistan having failed to do its duty. And who did the–who did the Pakistanis call the minute the American covert helicopter was shot down? They called the Chinese. Now, I would just suggest to you, we need to rethink carefully what do we mean by the word, “ally.” – Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich

The is no evidence that a U.S. helicopter “was shot down.” U.S. officials claim Navy SEALs destroyed the helicopter after it crash landed.

If elected, will Chicken Hawk Newt Gingrich be the One to hammer the last nail into the coffin of the Constitution?

“The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution… either we are going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we are going to have to rethink our process of making decisions.” – the forward of Alvin Toffler’s book, “The Politics of the Third Wave’ written by Newt Gingrich

It is clear to anyone who reads Newt’s record that Gingrich believes that our Constitution is an obstacle to overcome or in Newt’s way, instead of the sound legal document that has guaranteed our freedoms.

GinGrinch was for global warming before he was against it. In 1989, Newt co-sponsored the Global Warming Prevention Act (H.R. 1078) which called for policies “to reduce world emissions of carbon dioxide by at least 20 percent.” H.R. 1078 recognizes that global warming is a “major threat to political stability, international security and economic prosperity” – Sec 2 (a) (5)

Three years later, Gingrich calls the environmental proposals in Al Gore’s book Earth in Balance “devastatingly threatening to most American pocketbooks and jobs.” [National Journal, 9/5/92]

Newt Flip-Flopped again after he and Nancy Pelosi urged action on anthropogenic climate change in their 2008 TV Ad created by Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project. On Nov 6, 2011, candidate Gingrich said “First of all, that is probably the dumbest single thing I’ve done in years,” during the “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.

According to ABC, Gingrich’s Global Warming “position seems to have changed faster than the climate.”

“An end run around national sovereignty,eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault… one way to garner public support for new international treaties would be to propagandize world wide predicaments. If people are scared of terrorism, financial chaos or global warming they will be willing to cede their national sovereignty, freedom and liberties for global authority” – Richard N. Gardner’s “The hard road to world order” article published in Foreign Relations, the magazine of the Council on Foreign Relations April 1974

Newt was the GATT Man for the CFR. Thanks to Gingrich, Congress approved the Uruguay Round of GATT in December 1994 which created the World Trade Organization (WTO) on January 1, 1995. Newt could have postponed the lame-duck vote on General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade/World Trade Organization.

In his testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee, he said, “We need to be honest about the fact that we are transferring from the United States at a practical level significant authority to a new organization…. This is not just another trade agreement. This is adopting something which twice, once in the 1940s and once in the 1950s, the U.S. Congress rejected…. It is a very big transfer of power.” Newt knew GATT sounded the death knell for American sovereignty.

On April 15, 1994, the New York Times ran an Ad stating that “GATT is the third pillar of the New World Order.” The Benedict Arnold act transferred the power to regulate foreign commerce, a Constitutional Congressional power, to an internationally controlled body, thereby subjecting America’s economic interests to the WTO.

In 1993, Gingrich was instrumental in persuading Republicans to pass the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Newt was the Grand Old Pal (GOP) of Slick Willy Clinton.

“NAFTA is a major stepping stone to the New World Order.” -Henry Kissinger when campaigning for the passage of NAFTA.

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” David Rockefeller

“We shall have World Government whether you like it or not, by conquest or consent.” -James Warburg – Council on Foreign Relations

“Countless people will hate the New World Order and will die protesting it.” -H.G. Wells, The New World Order (1939)

“I’m not a natural leader. I’m too intellectual; I’m too abstract; I think too much.” – Newt Gingrich admitting that he’s an intellectual elite incapable of leading America
For Music Monday, You’re the Wrong One, Mr. Gingrich

“If the Soviet empire still existed, I’d be terrified. The fact is, we can afford a fairly ignorant presidency now.” – Newt Gingrich claiming it’s Ok to be an ignorant President
