It just dawned on me that "Don't plot with terrorists" means "don't plot with the government" since the government has to be responsible for ensuring the population is adequately terrified. Silly, I know, and preaching to the choir, but that's really what he's saying.

Now I know what he's green-lighting.

I read the Boston Globe piece on Romney, and the authors who investigated him for five years stated it was impossible to tell what really happened at Bain Capital Ventures. He says he created thousands of jobs, maybe, but any one who knows about VC firms can tell you it's a "pump and dump" operation. They seed companies with money then sell them in a better off state for a profit. The usual result is layoffs once the companies are sold and restructured.

So Mitt may have created jobs, but at best they were temporary.

Anyway, I sincerely believe the GOP doesn't have a snow ball's chance in hell at beating Obama. Where is Christie, where is Huckabee, where are the GOP heavyweights? That's my private conspiracy, why did the Republicans abandon the 2012 playing field to half-wits and tools?

Edit:If I am to answer my own question, I think the smart ones know Obama is unbeatable and are waiting out his next four years while the clowns put on circus.

I guess you forgot that airplanes that they used to both get here in our back yard and attack us with. In this world 10,000 miles IS our backyard but let them grow and get stronger and fly here at will. I hope the next attack doesnt affect YOUR family.


Any terrorist can walk across the border between Arizona and Mexico while Americans are fondled, x-rayed, and generally denied rights and treated badly by government employees at airports so Corporations can become incredibly wealthy at the expense of the same Americans who are being abused by the government.

The airport searches make no one safer. They were instituted after US FEDERAL AGENTS ESCORTED THE UNDERWEAR BOMBER ONTO THE AIRCRAFT SO HE COULD BE CAUGHT IN THE ACT. Michael Chertoff who was instrumental in implementing the airport security measures is on the payroll of the companies that make, install, and run the equipment.

WE ARE NOT BEING ATTACKED BY FOREIGN TERRORISTS. WE ARE BEING ATTACKED BY THE TRAITORS AND TERRORISTS WE HAVE ELECTED AND THOSE THEY IN TURN HAVE HIRED.

Cold life to live but he like the cop beating the crap out of his nieghbor while at work then going to see him in the hosiptal and inviting him to come over for a Bar B Q when he gets back on his feet....
I don't know what I can do anymore to spread the word to others. I guess I'm a product of the NWO... I don't want to talk to folks anymore...rather just listen and I never hear any educated conversation othe rthan the black bigots standing firm with Barry Serenoto... What to do.. Can't make them think... its a Black thing...yeah...you know its true.. and I hate like hell to say it! Same with folks supporting the RHINO's from each BS party. God...if I hear Hannity sux up to Newt one more time I'm gonna rip my radio out and run over it. Mike Church is got soem good stuff . Anyway... gor to go back to filling sand bags.

I'll agree with the person who called Newt an arrogant douche. I can't even stand to look at his face.

By the way, what Newt was saying WASN'T that we SHOULD or WILL let attacks happen, but rather he said this to make a point. Not that he wants it or would make it so. Just saying. I'm not trying to say he's right or a good man or anything, but this statement is being blown out of proportion. Makes me think that people are really starting to grasp at straws to make it look like bad things are happening.

The original video posted is way out of context. Just like any other political candidate, people are making him look bad by rearranging his answer to questions to make him look bad. Please watch the video I attach to see the entire answer he gave.

It is just like the short clip of Romney going around saying he likes to fire people. When you see those 10 seconds it sounds like a really bad line on his part however, if you hear the entire speech, what he was saying is that he likes being able to fire people such as insurance agents if he doesnt feel they are giving him fair service. Meaning if he doesn't like Statefarm, he can make the decision to switch to all-state.

Be careful how you take the vids you see on youtube. They are edited and put up there to make these candidates look bad.

Dude we know what Newt really meant. If you know Newts history he has a lot of dirty under his finger nails. He has been speaker of the house when all things were going down in the 90's, and yet failed to realize that. So even if he was sugar coating it, I like my facts without sugar.

Let me get this straight:

Mitt Romney supports the indefinite detainment of American citizens. (he's essentially Obama's clone)
Rick Santorum supports bombing Iran into oblivion and continuing the war propaganda.
Rick Perry says we need to go back to Iraq. (and he backed down on the TSA)
Newt Gingrich says terrorist attacks are a good thing!



And they say Ron Paul is the crazy unelectable one????



everybody should read this again..so true

ron paul is the only sane one left

newt and romney are both DOA to me after these pro ndaa and big brother statements

To a limited extent, I am willing to agree with Gingrich. Rather we should take some risks than gratuitously give up our own civil liberties out of panic and caution. Instead we have locked ourselves down so that we were living a more restricted existence than was Osama Bin Laden.

Thanks for adding the link. The new video does put his comments into proper context, but it still leaves me questioning his remarks as a whole.

Is he still advocating eavesdropping and are we supposed to laugh off his comment of letting a terror attack happen?

His comment of letting an attack happen was not said in a way that he meant it literally. He was saying that the FBI is doing such a good job (in their own eyes) that we are becoming too comfortable. We need to stay prepared for anything on any given day.

Almost like they need to let one slip just to keep us awake. But not literally saying we should allow it to happen.

Actually, should is exactly what he said..rewatch mate.
they (the government) should have allowed an attack to get through to make sure people are properly terrified and therefore not question the methods.

Grasping at straws? no...you might want to rethink what you are trying to say actually...your coming off as someone that is pretending not to like the newt, but is a closet total fanboy whom refuses to hear what he clearly said. Yes, the concept is not some new alien one..keep america terrified, then you can stop this talk about due process and questioning the military industrial complex.

not that he wants it or would make it so? Actually, if there is any credibility in the long line of conspiracys whatsoever, this guy is the total shoe in for the type of person that would gladly destroy american lives in order to secure his ideological view in america. hell, he would possibly be the type of person to secretly fund organizations to attack new york or cali (them liberal states)

The guy is a demon...not a big believer in reptilian skinjobs, but I wouldn't fully dismiss someone suggesting he is one of em.

ahh, so sort of like, the police should allow the occasional rape to happen, just to make sure women keep dressing properly and know their place.

gotcha.

Not at all.

He was stating that we are toocomfortable and need to stay aware. Not that we literally need to allow an attack.

Watch the video for yourself. If you think he is saying the gov should allow an attack then im sorry that you can't comprehend his statement properly.
