So now Newt Gingrich, of all people, has become the new darling of the Tea Party.  Newt, who cheated on his wife with his secretary.  Newt, the Bilderberger.  Newt, Mr. New World Order Bush's right hand man in the House.  Newt, the guy who lost his job as Speaker of the House and his position in Congress for shady dealings with his campaign financing.  How quickly we forget.

Here's an interesting little blast from the past concerning this moral defective masquerading as an intellectual elitist...

Have fun trying to justify an honest concern for the Constitution and an opposition to statism with the REAL Newt Gingrich.




Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich once spoke at an Alzheimer's conference sponsored by PositiveID (PSID), the human microchip implant company that came under fire for injecting 200 Alzheimer's patients with wireless chips in Florida without properly obtaining their consent. The issue of whether Americans should receive subcutaneous wireless RFID chip implants that can link to their electronic medical records emerged again in Wisconsin this week, where former governor and Bush Administration secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson is considering a run for Senate. Thompson was a former board member of VeriChip, the company that renamed itself PositiveID, and once appeared on CNBC with PositiveID CEO Scott Silverman to advocate that everyone receive a chip from birth:



Naturally, conservatives and privacy advocates were appalled. Thompson has not yet announced whether he will run. Gingrich, obviously, is already campaigning for the White House in 2012. His campaign faltered recently when he criticized the House GOP Medicare reform plan as an example of "right-wing social engineering." Many conservatives similarly believe that implanted health record microchips are a gross invasion of privacy.

Gingrich was the June 4 keynote speaker at the 2010, Alzheimer's Educational Conference in West Palm Beach, Fla. The conference was "presented by PositiveID," and CEO Silverman was one of two "conference co-chairs." A PositiveID press release touted Silverman's role in bringing Gingrich to the conference:
In this role, Mr. Silverman and PositiveID partnered with the Center for Health Transformation to bring Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and Founder, Center for Health Transformation, Newt Gingrich as the keynote speaker.

The conference occurred a little more than three months after the James Randi Educational Foundation -- which debunks pseudoscience -- reported that PositiveID had performed a "study" on 200 Alzheimer's patients in a Florida nursing home without the ethical supervision of an institutional review board. An IRB panel -- made up of experts and laypersons -- must sign off on all medical experiments on humans. The patients were unable to consent to the experiment themselves, so PositiveID obtained consent forms from their guardians, the Randi Foundation reported.

The company should have obtained consent from both the patients and their guardians, the foundation stated.
Gingrich was at the conference, in part, to promote his "National Alzheimer's Strategic Plan." The plan doesn't say anything specific about chips and Alzheimer's patients, but it does call for a massive new investment in digital health records (which PositiveID believes could be linked to its VeriChip/VeriMed/Health Link microchip product):
This value case should integrate systems to enhance the interoperability of electronic health records across traditional healthcare providers and with community agencies that provide key services to individuals and their caregivers.

As noted by the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, interoperable, standards based electronic health information systems and health records are a critical infrastructure for delivering such care. However, it is essential that this infrastructure be designed to effectively address the challenges that health professionals encounter when providing care to patients with dementia.

Thompson left the board of VeriChip in 2007 and apparently did not get a chip himself.

Well here is Newt's record of work

1979 - Elected to Congress from Georgia's 6th District
1979 - Voted to create the Department of Education, under President Jimmy Carter
1990 - Becomes member of Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
1993 - Voted for NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement
1994 - Supported the WTO, the World Trade Organization. Voted for GATT, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade that subjected Americans to the international authority of the WTO
1995 - Becomes Speaker of the House of Representatives and recommends reading The Third Wave by Alvin Toffler as required reading for all of his Congressional colleagues.
1995 - Delivers speech to the Center for Strategic and International Affairs in which he blames the US Constitution for making America's role in leading the world more difficult! Read his full quote in accompanying article, "The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution...".
1995 - Wrote the foreword to another one of Toffler's books, The Politics of the Third Wave, Creating a New Civilization
1995 - The liberal establishment Time Magazine names Newt Gingrich their “Man of the Year”
1995 - Appeals to the US House of Representatives to increase the power of the Presidency by repealing the War Powers Act of 1972, and urged President Clinton to expand the US military presence in Bosnia.
1996 - Under his leadership, Congress passed the largest single spending increase on education in US history, a whopping $3.5 billion dollars!
1999 - Newt resigns over failed midterm elections in which Republicans lost 5 seats, the worst loss in history for a Party who did not control the White House! At the same time, he was also involved in a flap over an extra marital affair and a controversial book deal!

“The Reincarnation of Newt”
2008 - Records the 'We Can Solve It' global warming TV commercial for Al Gore along with Nancy Pelosi
2009-2010 - Travels around the country with Al Sharpton and Arne Duncan to [romote President Obama's new educational policies: i.e. increased local control of schools with increased Federal subsidies and regulations from Washington. (Sounds like quite a contradiction to me.)
2010 - Supported ultra-liberal, pro-abortion, pro-union, establishment candidate Dede Scozzafava in New York's 23rd Congressional District in a special election, over conservative candidate Doug Hoffman.

And now he is acting like a conservative . . running as a republican who is really a RHINO at best
