Donna Garner’s “Political Tidbits for the Day”


By Donna Garner


Many GOP pundits agree that Newt Gingrich won the FoxNews debate on 1.16.12; and if all a President had to do was debate, then Newt would be our man.

Unfortunately, being President actually has little to do with debate skills and all to do with a person’s ethics, moral character, courage, attention to details, humility, being able to listen to wise counselors, discernment, wisdom, values, honor, ability to resist prideful pitfalls, code of conduct, steadfastness, and other important characteristics.

Unfortunately, Newt Gingrich is lacking in many of the really important characteristics which make a President a great and dependable leader.


Rick Perry suspended his campaign today and announced that he was endorsing Newt Gingrich, saying “…There is forgiveness for those who seek God. I believe in the power of redemption…He has the heart of a conservative reformer.”


Yes, there is forgiveness for anyone who repents of his sins and asks the Lord into his life. However, the Bible makes it very clear that just because God has forgiven us of our wrongdoings does not mean that we are free from the natural consequences in this life of our bad choices.


Is it smart for us voters to elect Newt Gingrich with all of his “baggage” to become the leader of the greatest nation on earth?  Why settle for less when we have a great choice in Rick Santorum who is a man of integrity and of his word?




The media reported today that Newt and Rick Perry have been having secret face-to-face meetings for several weeks.  Having watched most all of the debates so far, I felt that Rick Perry was unusually confident and uncharacteristically bold this last Monday night (FoxNews debate) when he challenged Mitt Romney to make his IRS tax returns public. Could it be that Gingrich felt he could not be the one to proffer that idea because of having been criticized so vehemently for having hit Romney very hard with the Bain issue?  Did Newt perhaps tell Rick Perry, “If you will suspend your campaign and raise the issue of Romney’s IRS tax returns during theFoxNews debate, I will make sure that there is a place for you in my administration”?    




Coincidentally on the very same day that Rick Perry endorsed Newt, Marianne Gingrich, (Newt’s second of two ex-wives) is set to be interviewed tonight byABCNews; and snippets of the interview have already been released.

Marianne is going to say that Newt asked her for a an “open marriage” or a divorce on a Monday and within 48 hours gave a speech on family values.  At the time, Newt (who is now 69 years old) had already been having a six-year illicit love affair with Callista, a Congressional staffer who is 23 years younger than he is.

Excerpts from this article:

Marianne Gingrich was married to Newt for 18 years. He asked Marianne to marry him while his first wife Jackie was dying of cancer.  Later on when Marianne was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, she found out that Newt had been having an affair with Callista Bisek for six years. Callista and Newt now live a luxurious lifestyle because of the wealth he has gained from American Solutions, Center for Health Transformation, and Citizens United.

It was announced today by Matt Strawn, the Iowa GOP party chair, that in the Jan. 3 caucus, Rick Santorum actually beat Mitt Romney by 34 votes – not the 8 votes as reported on the night of the caucus.

Ironically Strawn decided not to declare Santorum the official winner today because eight of the state’s 1,774 precincts’ voting results are still missing.  However when those same eight precincts’ results came up missing on the night of the caucus, the Iowa GOP officials did not hesitate to proclaim Romney the clear winner.

As reported by CBSNews right after the Iowa caucus, Santorum only spent$537,200 to win while Romney’s SuperPAC spent $3.4 Million.




Today the public learned that Mitt Romney used offshore banks to shield his millions from U. S. taxes. Yesterday we learned that he only paid a 15% federal income tax rate on his vast fortune.



Remember when Ron Paul said in the FoxNews debate on 1.16.12:

So Taliban are people who want — their main goal is to keep foreigners off their land. It’s the al-Qaeda — you can’t mix the two. The al-Qaeda want to come here to kill us. The Taliban just says, ‘We don’t want foreigners.’ We need to understand that, or we can’t resolve this problem in the Middle East. We are going to spend a lot of lives and a lot of money for a long time to come.

Ron Paul was totally wrong. Al-Qaeda and the Taliban have worked together to foment violence against America and other countries for years.  

As reported by the Associated Press on 1.18.12 ( http://news.yahoo.com/us-boarding-school-al-qaida-suicide-bomber-130049666.html ), Moeed Abdul Salam was reared in Plano, Texas, graduated from the University of Texas, and became a homegrown terrorist.  On Facebook shortly before he committed suicide, he posted “an image of Anwar al-Awalki, the American al-Qaida leader who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen, beside a burning American flag. He had also recently linked to a document praising al-Awalki’s martyrdom and to a message urging Muslims to rejoice ‘in this time when you see the mujahideen all over the world victorious.’ ”


The Associated Press went on to report, “…Salam, who had apparently been active in militant circles for as long as nine years, arrived three years ago in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, and became an important link between al-Qaida, the Taliban and other extremists groups…Salam traveled to the tribal areas close to the Afghan border three or four times for meetings with senior al-Qaida and Taliban leaders.”


Andrew McCarthy in the National Review Online wrote a powerful piece on 1.19.12 entitled “Ron Paul: Wrong on the Taliban.”  In it, McCarthy stated:

It should come as no surprise, then, that the Taliban willingly gave al-Qaeda safe haven, knowing full well that bin Laden’s network was engaged in a global jihad that targeted the United States as its primary enemy. Al-Qaeda struck American interests several times while it had sanctuary from the Taliban, attacking American embassies in East Africa and the USS Cole in Yemen before orchestrating the 9/11 attacks. By quite consciously accommodating and protecting an international terrorist organization that was at war with the United States, the Taliban joined al-Qaeda and became an enemy of the United States… ( http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/288510/ron-paul-wrong-taliban-andrew-c-mccarthy )
