The most recent polling finds that Republican voters have elevated Newt Gingrich to presidential frontrunner status.
But it is difficult to believe that those supporting him agree with his amnesty plan or are even aware that his proposal sounds like it would give U.S. jobs and residency to around 3.5 million illegal aliens (according to a new Pew Hispanic Center study).
Unless Gingrich supporters push him to back off, he is promising a bigger amnesty than the giant blanket amnesty of 1986 that was supposed to be the first and last one ever. Hopefully, his supporters can talk him into cutting out at least 90% of his amnesty.
We have no way to set up faxing to candidate Gingrich, but you can send an email to him at: http://www.newt.org/contact. Click on the “Platform” option and let him know what you want him to change and how you feel about his immigration platform.
(Watch the recording of our webcast today that focused on the details of Gingrich’s official immigration platform: www.NumbersUSA.tv)
GINGRICH, BUSH & OBAMA SEE ONLY THE OPTIONS OF DEPORTATION OR LEGALIZATION (Attrition Through Enforcement isn’t in their vocabulary)
Former House Speaker Gingrich agrees wtih Presidents Bush and Obama that the only major options for illegal aliens are deporting them or legalizing them (choices that nearly all mainstream media also insist on).
His official immigration platform gives no hint of recognizing that there is a third option —Attrition Through Enforcement — that eliminates the jobs and benefits magnets for illegal aliens so that they will self-deport back to their home countries. Thus, Gingrich is at odds with most of the other GOP candidates and most GOP Members of Congress who favor the Attrition option.
HIS 10-STEP IMMIGRATION PLATFORM SUGGESTS PROBLEM IS WORKER SHORTAGE
Since boldly advocating his legalization plan in a debate last week, he has responded to critics by telling us to read his official “10 Steps to a Legal Nation” and his “7-Point Plan.” We’ve read and studied both and are more frightened than ever.
We do agree with Gingrich and with the Pew Center that Gingrich is not suggesting a blanket amnesty like Bush and Obama. There are two key opportunities in Gingrich’s proposals so far for limiting the damage:
- Because Gingrich would never allow his amnestied illegal aliens to become U.S. citizens, they would not be able to use the Chain Migration categories to bring in endless lines of extended family members from their home countries. The 1986 amnesty was for around 3 million illegal aliens. But since then millions more of their relatives have been brought to this country, multiplying the harm to American workers, infrastructure and taxpayers.
- Because Gingrich has not spelled out his exact criteria for everybody he would reward with amnesty, his proposal could be as much as two-thirds as bad as Bush’s or Obama’s. But the current ambiguity also leaves room for Gingrich to step forward and promise criteria that would keep the amnesty to something under a million (more like some of the amnesties that he let get through Congress when he was Speaker).
At the moment, though, voters should not be misled by Gingrich’s public use of examples of illegal aliens who have been in the U.S. for 25 years. Nothing on his website or the 10 Step or the 7 Points limits the Gingrich Amnesty to people who have been here 25 years or more. In fact, nothing puts any kind of time limit. To qualify for the Gingrich Amnesty right now, one need only have “deep ties” of “family, church and community.”
Gingrich supporters need to at least persuade him to put a 25-year residency requirement in his website amnesty plan.
You can view the 10 Steps here: http://www.newt.org/solutions/immigration (If we are lucky and you are reading this several days or weeks after I wrote this blog, you will find 10 Steps that are very different from what I report here.)
In summary the 10 Steps include:
- 2 enforcement measures (strenthening the border & deporting criminals and gang members)
- 2 measures to help immigrants assimilate
- 4 measures to remove or expand numerical limits and otherwise ease the ability for more foreign workers and visitors to come to the United States
- 2 measures that provide for legalization for illegal aliens
- No Steps that would remove the jobs magnet for illegal aliens or push them to voluntarily go back home.
- No Steps that suggest protections for American workers.
- While the big legalization Step does say that “we need a path to swift but dignified repatriation for those who are transient and have no roots in America,” there is nothing in this platform that indicates how this would be done.
The overall tone of the Gingrich platform is that immigration policy should help us deal with worker shortages with no acknowledgement that current immigration levels are any kind of a problem for the 22 million Americans who want a full-time job but can’t find one.
GINGRICH’S 3 GUIDING IMMIGRATION PRINCIPLES
The blind spot to the needs of American workers is exemplified in the fact that his website lists three guiding principles for immigration policy and none has anything to do with protecting the interests of Americans. Instead, his principles are that
(1) We shouldn’t try to pass a comprehensive immigration plan but should pass one part at a time.
(2) Legalized illegal aliens should not be allowed to be U.S. citizens.
(3) A “system has to be established” to give illegal aliens with “deep ties” legal status. Unlike Bush and Obama, he would not allow them to become voters. But like Bush and Obama he would allow them to keep their jobs instead of opening them up for the millions of Americans who are waiting in line for those jobs.
Amnesty (or “legalization” as Gingrich prefers to call it) is currently a key foundation of Gingrich’s immigration plan.
The Pew Hispanic Center looked at the number of illegal aliens who have been here more than 10 years and who have the kind of family and community ties that Gingrich seems to suggest. That’s how they came up with the 3.5 million figure. Gingrich certainly can come forward and offer much stricter criteria to show us that he is only talking about a very few people and not millions. But his current platform could be interpreted to include nearly every illegal alien who is in a mixed-status family, which could put the number well over 6 million.
Only Gingrich supporters have a chance to get him to change his mind, or at least to restrict the legalization to no more than a few hundred thousand rather than millions.

Who Is Newt Gingrich?
Some of us are old enough to remember Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America” that produced huge Republican victories in both houses of Congress back in 1994.
“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
– David Rockefeller; the Lifetime Emeritus Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations
However, what did that “Conservative Revolution” (as it was called then) actually produce? The answer: NOTHING! Newt’s promise of smaller government was immediately forgotten. Instead, Gingrich, along with Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, facilitated and helped orchestrate further expansion of the federal government. The “less government” theme that swept house freshmen such as Joe Scarborough, Steve Largent, Sonny Bono, Bob Barr, Helen Chenoweth, John Shadegg, and J.C. Watts into Congress quickly evaporated and this new neocon Republican Party was born.
Mark it down, if Newt Gingrich is the Republican Party’s Presidential nominee in 2012, he will do to whatever grassroots conservative momentum is brought about by this year’s congressional victories what he did to the “Conservative Revolution” in 1994: DESTROY IT!
Newt’s track record is there for anyone to see. So, why does Fox News continue to promote him as a leader of smaller government or constitutionalism? Does Fox News even have a clue as to what limited government really means? Apparently not.
Remember, Newt Gingrich is a long-standing member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which is a notorious proponent of globalism and archenemy of national independence, State sovereignty, and limited government. Does anyone at Fox News recall what Admiral Chester Ward said about the CFR? (Plus, how many of the Big Shots at Fox News are themselves members of the CFR?)
Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) THE HIDDEN GOVERNMENT!
The Council on Foreign Relations is an organization which was created and financed by the people belonging to The Round Table/Money Trust, and is working towards a one world government. At the time of writing, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has lead to the acceptance of an express highway 1/4 mile wide linking Mexico to Canada and driving straight through the hearland of the USA. This will eventually mean no borders in North America. A North American Union between Canada, The USA and Mexico is quietly being proposed and implemented, with a proposed currency, the Amero.
These are the only two reasons I still vote
1) Honor ALL the Veterans who have served this great nation, and those who continue to do so!…..All Veteran’s truly do deserve our Thanks and Assistance where and when ever we can give it, and give it we should, and never stop.
2) It is our responsibility as American citizens, to continue to vote
so that we “collectively” can try to save OUR way of life in this beautiful country.
“The main purpose of the Council on Foreign Relations
is promoting the disarmament of U.S. sovereignty and
national independence and submergence into an all powerful, one world government.”
Rear Admiral Chester Ward…former Navy Judge advocate general (4yrs) and (16yr) CFR member.
Rear Admiral Chester Ward Renounced The CFR!
Rear Admiral Chester Ward, who was the Judge Advocate General of the Navy from 1956 to 1960 and a former member of the CFR who pulled out after realizing what they were all about, warned the American people about the dangers of this and similar organizations (such as the Trilateral Commission). He said, “The most powerful clique in these elitist groups have one objective in common–they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States. A second clique of international members in the CFR . . . comprises the Wall Street international bankers and their key agents. Primarily, they want the world banking monopoly from whatever power ends up in the control of global government.”
Admiral Ward also said, “The main purpose of the Council on Foreign Relations is promoting the disarmament of U.S. sovereignty and national independence and submergence into an all powerful, one world government.”
Accordingly, as a loyal CFR elitist, Gingrich has supported Big Government programs and policies all of his political life. Gingrich is also an ardent disciple of Alvin Toffler, who is the guru of “The Third Wave” politics. That’s why Gingrich refers to himself as a “conservative futurist.”
Webster’s (1992) Dictionary defines “Futurism” as: “Study of, and interest in, forecasting or anticipating the future, or theorizing on how to IMPOSE CONTROLS ON EVENTS.” (Emphasis added.)
Steve Farrell rightly notes that “futurism is a head-in-the-clouds political philosophy, complete with theories and forecasts, which envisions the use of force to insure that those theories and forecasts come to pass.” Farrell summarizes “conservative futurism” as “communism with economic vision.”
This is why Gingrich went along with Clinton’s Big Government agenda, and supported the unconstitutional faith-based subsidies, public-private “partnerships,” etc. Gingrich’s brand of “conservatism” spawned another Big Government neocon’s (Karl Rove–another favorite son at Fox News) “Compassionate Conservative” movement of the G.W. Bush White House, which at the time led to the biggest expansion of the federal government since Lyndon Johnson.
Gingrich’s infatuation with “conservative futurism” also helps explain his support for NAFTA, GATT, the WTO, and virtually every other policy promoting globalism and interdependence. It also helps explain why Gingrich and former Vice President Al Gore have worked so closely together in globalist organizations such as the now-defunct Congressional Clearing House on the Future (once chaired by Gore).
See Steve Farrell’s column at:
Gingrich was also a major proponent of the federal Department of Education, continually supports unconstitutional foreign aid, even to the Soviets and other unfriendly governments, through the Export-Import Bank. In one year (1994-1995) Gingrich voted for nearly $45 billion in foreign aid. He also helped push through federal loan guarantees to Communist China.
Gingrich was the Grand Old Pal of President Bill Clinton. He supported Clinton’s unconstitutional wars (as he did Bush’s); he supported Clinton’s welfare programs, education programs, labor programs, and environmental programs, as well as most of his foreign affairs programs. Gingrich supported spending $30 billion for the Violent Crime and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 that shackled gun owners with new restrictions, federalized a number of crimes, and handed the feds police powers that the Constitution reserves to the states. (I guess the NRA forgot all about that, too.)
Gingrich voted to give billions of dollars to United Nations “peacekeeping” operations; he supported the National Endowment for the Arts; he supports giving illegal aliens amnesty; and he has continually supported increased federal spending and higher taxes.
Campaign for Liberty has an excellent exposé on Newt Gingrich that I encourage everyone to read. See it at:
Also, John McManus has an outstanding video exposing Newt Gingrich as a traitor to conservatism and constitutional government that everyone should watch. See it at:
In spite of overwhelming evidence that Newt Gingrich is a scheming, double-talking, duplicitous Big-Government globalist of the highest order, many conservatives continue to listen to pro-Gingrich propaganda coming from Fox News and other “conservative” outlets.
Watch McCain who is involved with CFR undermining The USA.
If true conservatism has any chance of reemerging within the sheepfold of what is known as the national Republican Party, that fox, Newt Gingrich, must not be allowed to be anywhere near it. Unfortunately, thanks to Fox News (pun too easy to pass up), Gingrich is prowling around the barnyard and doubtless licking his chops at the prospect of having another opportunity to feast on the flesh of unsuspecting conservative sheep that foolishly believe him to be one of them.
WHO IS THE REAL NEWT GINGRICH?
World War I was fought to bring all nations under the control of a world authority. When the conflict finally ended, Great Britain was bankrupt, and Lord Milner’s men asked Frederick Howe to arrange a meeting with the American delegation to determine if they were willing to assume the leadership of their program. Colonel House led the American delegation, and he and his associates readily agreed to the British offer. Subsequently, Royal Institutes of International Affairs were established in five Commonwealth nations, and the Council on Foreign Relations was organized in the United States.
When it became obvious that the League of Nations was destined to fail, the newly formed Anglo-American Establishment began financing the Nazis, which led to World War II. Following World War I, Colonel House and J. P. Morgan created the Council on Foreign Relations as a front for the American branch of the Round Table, and Morgan’s financial empire. Admiral Chester Ward belong to the CFR for sixteen years, and he warned that the small group that controlled the organization sought disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government.
David Rockefeller does not exercise vast powers because he is chairman of the board of directors of CFR but because he is chairman of the board of one of the two most powerful banks in the world. His influence extends into finance, business, industry, transportation, communications, the press, television, universities, foundations, international organizations, and government.
The Templars, the Rosicrucians, the Illuminati, and the Hermetic Freemasons all worshiped Lucifer. In return, he gave them wealth and power. The occult religions are only part of our problem. The Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergers, the Trilateral Commision, and the Club of Rome can be traced back to the occult.
Rev. Richard Wurmbrand was living in Romania when the communists took over that country. He was arrested, imprisoned and tortured for fourteen years to force him to renounce his faith. Many of the ministers who were imprisoned with him recanted their beliefs under torture, and they died broken men. When Rev. Wurmbrand was finally released, he set out to discover why his tormentors were intent on destroying his faith. When he read the early writings of Karl Marx he discovered that Marx wasn’t an atheist; he was a Satanist. Karl Marx didn’t believe in communism, but he embraced it in an effort to destroy Christian civilization.
Mikhail Gorbachev was the dictator of the USSR and the director of the Soviet KGB before he came to the United States. Maurice Strong, Stephen Rockefeller, and Mikhail Gorbachev wrote the Earth Charter, which calls for a world government and a new spirituality. Gorbachev’s State of the World Forum meetings always had an underlying theme of occultism.
God and Satan are involved in a cosmic struggle for the souls of mankind, and each of us is involved whether we want to be or not. The battle is being waged in our courts, our media, our schools, our banks, our military, our churches, and in our government. It appears that God has given Satan free reign to do as he pleases to determine how we will respond.
