Are the networks hiding White House emails ordering counterterrorism team to stand down on rescue mission at Consulate in Benghazi?

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says there is a rumor that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down. “They were a group in real-time trying to mobilize Marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House ‘stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action.’”

The Blaze He continued, “If that’s true, and I’ve been told this by a fairly reliable U.S. senator, if that’s true and that comes out in the next day or two, I think it raises enormous questions about the president’s role, Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser’s role, the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who has taken it on his own shoulders, that he said don’t go. And I think that’s very dubious, given that the president said he had instructions they are supposed to do everything they could to secure American personnel.”
Gingrich said if accurate, it leaves two conclusions: that the the secretary of defense usurped the commander in chief or that Obama never gave the order. Gingrich said he thinks Benghazi will be “enormous in terms of the election,” saying that he’s been to multiple places where voters want to know what happened.

Scott Brown Ribs Santorum

“I see that both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum now have Secret Service with them on the camp trail. And in Santorum’s case, I think it‘s the first time that he’s actually ever used protection,” Brown said, referring to the former Pennsylvania senator’s staunch opposition to birth control.

Is Sheila Jackson Lee A Racist?

Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee on Friday accused Newt Gingrich of using racial “code words” in calling President Barack Obama the “food stamp president” and saying schools ought to hire children to do janitorial work.

The Texas congresswoman’s comments came in response to a question about remarks she made on the House floor Wednesday, when she said there are “candidates like Newt Gingrich who want to throw fuel and matches and fire to develop sort of an explosiveness in this country” and there are “underlying suggestions” to calling Obama the “food stamp president.”

“These are code words. It’s inappropriate,” Jackson Lee told MSNBC’s Martin Bashir Friday. “Let me say that the code words, as far as I’m concerned words that generate and signify race.”

“[With Gingrich] It is ‘I will use race to divide. I will call the president the food stamp president,’” she said. “Telling us that a janitor who makes $37,000 would be in a better position to give his job up so that the children of the poor in New York…can pick up a broom and work.”

To say children in New York should “pick up a broom and work…is a code word to, if you will, portray poor children and poor school districts that they have seen no one work legitimately,” she said. “That they don‘t have a work ethic and these janitors are overpaid unionized workers who don’t have family and are not making $37,000 a year”

“I think Mr. Gingrich should be ashamed of himself and we should not want to win at any cost. Let’s bring the country together. Let’s not destroy Mr. Obama. Let’s talk about helping the American people,” she said.

Gingrich blasts ‘anti-Christian bigotry’, Perry promises to end ‘war on religion’

GOP primary debate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich blasted what he said was anti-Christian bigotry in the media, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry promised to end what he sees as the Obama administration’s “war on religion.”

“The bigotry question goes both ways,” Gingrich said, inserting himself into the discussion after a series of questions related to contraception, gay marriage and gay adoption. The former speaker charged that the focus on social issues indicated media bias.

“And there’s a lot more anti-Christian bigotry today than there is concerning the other side. And none of it gets covered by the news media.”

Gingrich specifically knocked a question about whether the assembled candidates would allow gay couples to adopt.

“You don’t hear the opposite question asked,” he explained.

“Should the Catholic Church be forced to close its adoption services in Massachusetts because it won’t accept gay couples, which is exactly what the state has done? Should the Catholic Church be driven out of providing charitable services in the District of Columbia because it won’t give in to secular bigotry? Should the Catholic Church find itself discriminated against by the Obama administration on key delivery of services because of the bias and the bigotry of the administration?”

Shortly after Gingrich’s attack on the media, Texas Gov. Rick Perry pivoted from a question about whether he would consider a third-party run to promise that if elected president he would end what he called “this administration’s war on religion.”

Newt hits Romney: ‘Could we drop a little bit of the pious baloney?’

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich asked former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to drop the “pious baloney” during Sunday’s “Meet the Press” GOP presidential primary debate from New Hampshire.

Romney explained to the New Hampshire audience why he was running for president and how he is business experience made him different from his fellow competitors.

“For me, my career was being in business and starting a business and making it successful. My life’s passion is my family, faith and my country,” Romney said.

“I believe in the experiences by virtue, I have had I am in a good position to make a contribution to Washington. I long for a day instead of people go to Washington for 20 and 30 years, who get elected and then when they lose office, they stay there and make money as lobbyist, or connecting to businesses — I think it stinks. I think people should go to work in Washington and serve Washington and serve as the people of their nation and go home. I would like to see term limits in Washington. As the president of the United States, if I am elected, of course I will fight for a second term. There is a lot of work to be done.”

But that drew an aggressive reaction from Gingrich, who said Romney’s suggestion that he hasn’t repeatedly sought elective office was “pious baloney.”

“I realize the red light doesn’t mean anything to you because you are the front-runner — but could we drop a little bit of the pious baloney?” Gingrich said.

“The fact is you ran in ’94 and lost, and that’s why you were not serving with Rick Santorum. The fact is you had a bad re-election rating. You dropped office. You had been out of state for something like 200 days and preparing to run for president. You didn’t have this interlude of citizenship while you thought about what to do. You were running for president while you were governor. You were going all over the country, and you were out of state consistently. You then promptly re-entered politics and you happened to lose to [John] McCain as you lost to [Ted] Kennedy. Now, you’re back running. You have been running consistently for years and years and years, and the idea that then suddenly citizenship showed up in your mind, and just level with the American people. You have been running since the 1990s.”

Gingrich: Romney is a ‘liar’

On the day of the Iowa caucuses, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich changed course away from his largely positive campaign, launching an attack on former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. In an interview on CBS’s “The Early Show” with Norah O’Donnell and Bob Schieffer, Gingrich called his opponent a liar and said his nomination would jeopardize the GOP’s 2012 election chances..

O’DONNELL: I have to ask you — are you calling Mitt Romney a liar?
O’DONNELL: You’re calling Mitt Romney a liar?
GINGRICH: Well, you seem shocked by it. Yes. What else can you say?
O’DONNELL: Why is he a liar?

Gingrich explained that Romney wasn’t being forthright about the true forces behind a political action committee working to get him elected, and added Romney wasn’t telling the truth about his record as Massachusetts governor.

“This is a man whose staff created the PAC and his millionaire friends fund the PAC,” Gingrich said. “He pretends he has nothing to do with the PAC. It’s baloney. He’s not telling the American people the truth. It’s just like his pretense that he’s a conservative. Here’s a Massachusetts moderate who has tax-paid abortions in ‘RomneyCare,’ puts Planned Parenthood in ‘RomneyCare,’ raises hundreds of millions of dollars of taxes on businesses, appoints liberal judges and wants the rest of us to believe he’s somehow magically a conservative.”

Gingrich has seen a recent drop in the polls after enjoying a brief period as the Republican front-runner. Gingrich was hit with millions of dollars in attack ads while he was atop the polls.
