According to Newt Gingrich, former Congressman from Georgia, and Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995-1999, for Fox News, “Biden, Democrats make every decision based on how it impacts America and always chose what hurts the most.”
“When Sean Hannity asked me why President Joe Biden would favor buying oil and gas from Venezuela over producing oil and gas in Texas, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Louisiana or North Dakota, something clicked in my thinking.”
Something “clicked” for me as well, although for me it “clicked” a couple of years ago. So, welcome to the party Newt, although you’re quite late.
My prior thinking was that democrats were misguided, foolish, and/or stupid, but then I came to realize the democrats’ (at least the ruling class of democrats) anti-America actions were calculated and evil, while the majority of their followers were misguided, foolish, and/or stupid, although we all know that ignorance is no excuse in the end.
Newt continues, “I was reminded of the amazing speech United Nations Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick gave at the 1984 Republican Convention, when she described the ‘blame-America-first Democrats.’”
“I suddenly realized the common thread of Biden administration policies at home and abroad is to weaken America.”
Ya think, Newt?!
Is this why it seems the republicans are always a day late and a dollar short?
“Think about the administration’s range of choices and ask yourself: Which ones would strengthen America, and which ones would weaken it?”
“In Afghanistan, Biden could have followed the advice of [some of] the professional military and withdrawn in a calm and orderly manner. This would have led to no loss of life, no abandonment of equipment, and no sense of humiliating failure. It would have made America stronger.”
“Instead, the Biden administration overruled the military, abandoned billions in equipment, fled Afghanistan in chaos [and humiliation], sacrificed 13 young Americans [soldiers], and abandoned thousands of Americans and tens of thousands of our allies. He chose to weaken America.”
Biden and his administration were then allowed to lie and deny the whole thing, without being held accountable by the fake news media.
“The Biden team could side with the demonstrators in Iran and China who are trying to overthrow dictatorships. Instead, it has made a series of weak, border-line pathetic comments. A strong America would reach out to people striving to be free. A weak America [led by a bought and paid for Joe Biden] kowtows to Xi Jinping and the Chinese communist dictatorship and grovels to the ayatollah and the Iranian tyranny, no matter how much they work against us. Once again, weakening America and strengthening our enemies is the Biden [and the democrats’] model.”
“If the United States had sustained [maintained] [its] energy independence, we would be strengthening our European allies with liquid natural gas. They could ignore Russia’s economic blackmail. A strong America would do just that. Instead, the Biden administration is pleading with the crown prince of Saudi Arabia and exonerating him from the killing of a journalist. All of Biden’s earlier tough language about Saudi Arabia being a ‘pariah state’ has dissolved. All that is left is Biden’s whimpering plea for more Saudi oil to make up for the American oil he has blocked. Again, America is weaker.”
Again, while Biden and his administration were then allowed to lie, deny, spread disinformation about the whole thing, without being held accountable by the fake news media.
“As I mentioned, Kirkpatrick was the first to clearly identify the decay of the Democrats away from strength and realism toward weakness and fantasies. Her 1984 speech captured the trajectory of madness and destruction onto which the Democrats had embarked.”
That’s close to 40 years ago already, and the democrats definitely are living in some sort of sick “fantasy” world.
“She noted that the Democrats at that time had clearly broken from the patriotic traditions of Democrat Presidents Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson and were on a new, more destructive path. She continued: ‘They said that saving Grenada from terror and totalitarianism was the wrong thing to do, they didn’t blame Cuba or the communists for threatening American students and murdering Grenadians, they blamed the United States instead.’”
“When our Marines, sent to Lebanon on a multinational peacekeeping mission with the consent of the United States Congress, were murdered in their sleep, the ‘blame America first crowd’ didn’t blame the terrorists who murdered the Marines, they blamed the United States.”
“When the Soviet Union walked out of arms control negotiations, and refused even to discuss the issues, the San Francisco Democrats didn’t blame Soviet intransigence. They blamed the United States.”
“When Marxist dictators shoot their way to power in Central America, the San Francisco Democrats don’t blame the guerrillas and their Soviet allies, they blame United States policies…”
“In the last 38 years, ‘blame America first’ has metastasized into ‘weaken America first.’”
“The patriotic courage of Presidents Truman, Kennedy and Johnson has mutated into a steadily weaker and more pathetic foreign and national security policy. It began with President Jimmy Carter and grew steadily worse with Presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Biden.”
Newt’s perspective here is more of an historic one, and one from a world view.
My perspective here is more one of current affairs and current democrat policies, such as:
The promotion of criminal behavior, and the allowance of crime against law-abiding individuals and businesses.
The promotion of and the allowance of illegal immigrants crossing into our country on our southern border.
The promotion of and the allowance of the Mexican drug cartels to carry out their drug trafficking and human trafficking operations.
The creation of record high inflation, and the disinformation and denial of this record inflation.
The systematic destruction of our country’s history.
The promotion of pedophilia as an acceptable life style, and the federal protection of those involved in this lifestyle, regarding Epstein’s client list for example.
The promotion of aborting babies at any time, even after birth!
The weaponization of the DOJ and the FBI against any citizen who dares to disagree with the democrats’ stated goals and narratives.
The attack on fossil fuel production in our country, even though fossil fuels still provide 90-95% of the energy our country requires.
The promotion of Climate Change as a world-ending, human created, problem, and the promotion of Green New Deal policies and laws that would supposedly have some type of positive effect on this supposed problem.
The promotion of pandemic policies, vaccines, and mandates, which had no basis in science, but rather were all politically driven, with no consideration of the well-being of the American people, or the people of the world for that matter.
The coordinated assault on our election systems and procedures.
The degradation of our education system, and the promotion of liberal narrative indoctrination.
Their attacks on our Constitution, particularly the 1st and 2nd amendments.
It would seem the democrats certainly have left no stone unturned in their attack on our great country!
I agree with Newt when he says, “Today, the most reliable predictor of Biden administration (or Democrat Party) policy is whether it will strengthen or weaken America. If it will strengthen America, they almost certainly will not do it. If it will weaken America, they almost certainly will.”
There can be no doubt that “Weaken America First” is the Democrats’ Goal.
