Newt Gingrich Joins In Criticism Of Obama's Handling Of Terrorism Attempt

January 15, 2010 by  

Newt Gingrich joins in criticism of Obama's handling of terrorism attempt A growing number of prominent Republicans have criticized President Obama’s handling of the aftermath of the Christmas Day terrorist attempt, and Newt Gingrich has recently added his view to the mix.

Speaking with Bill O’Reilly of Fox News, the former House Speaker said that America is less safe than a year ago as a result of—among other things—the administration’s plan to keep releasing detainees from the prison at Guantanamo Bay.

Gingrich has also blasted the government for the decision to try the terrorist suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in a civilian court, which he sees as giving terrorist suspects constitutional rights that should not apply to them. The former Republican congressman from Georgia said this reveals the administration to be more concerned with the rights of terrorists than those of American citizens.

"I believe what you have is a group of people centered in the Justice Department and the Attorney General, whose law firms all gave pro bono support to terrorism," Gingrich told O’Reilly.

In addition, despite numerous civil rights organizations calling on the government to refrain from ethnic or religious profiling, Gingrich expressed his belief that some measure of profiling needs to be introduced to keep the country safer.

"It is time to know more about would-be terrorists, to profile for terrorists and to actively discriminate based on suspicious terrorist information," the politician wrote on the website of HumanEvents.com, a conservative publication.

    Profiling narrows down who is most likely to cause death and mayhem. This alone is a great reason to profile. No matter what comment anyone can make against it, it is inconceivable that anyone would not think it better to profile than not to profile. It is time to ‘get over it’! Being politically correct does not keep Americans safe!

    Yes profile! Common Sense!
    This President has put us in harm’s way along with “politically” correct attitudes.
    What do we have to do to make this happen???
    Newt for President, period.

    • Nino Baldino

      Newt was the one who called into session a rump congress to push in to law the dreaded trade bills that is the real cause of our recession.its nafta and gatt that has caused the death of the tariff and thus the invasion of our shores,our shelves and frigs of slave labor goods that has put out of work millions of workers and made in america products!!!! Strange how this elemental bit of civics is never brought up….how many lives have been lost and injured due to china made products which have proven to be poisoned in many ways…may God enlighten before its too late…a free people can vote its self into slavery but a slave can never vote himself free……

  • Cindy in Los Cabos

    Newt is trying to position himself for a run at the presidency. He is endorsing “climate change” controls and is a true “insider” and member of the Council On Foreign Relations. This is the same gang that is the power behind the throne and engineering the collapse of the dollar right now. If you want more of the same – loss of wealth and liberty – be sure to cast your vote for Newt. Bankers own it all – and unless we find someone that is not in bed with this cabal – it’s game over for America. Forget left / right! It’s like a football team during practice with defense and offense really going at each other – each bent on winning. However, never doubt that come Saturday game time – these guys are all on the same team.

    • http://Don'thaveone Sally

      No NO NO Newt himself many many times has said he is not interested in running for president. Hey, he makes more money and gets more respect doing what he is doing now on the sidelines. Why give that up. When he was Speaker of the House during the Clinton Administration (before our favorite Nazi Pelosi took over) he balanced the budget by sending back to Clinton for revision 5 times the budget had sent for ratification.

      • eyeswideopen

        Sslly, he was also the only speaker in 208 years that was reprimanded and had to pay a fine of 300K for ethical wrongdoing. Yes, let’s put him back into our wonderful world of corrupt politicians. Maybe he could hook up with Ensign and Vitter and just be an adulterer. LOL

  • http://victorbarney@embarqmail.com Victor L Barney

    Newt Gingrich is NOT my TOP CHOICE to run against Obama.

    I’d LOVE TO SEE FRED THOMPSON RUN AGAINST OBAMA!!!

    I would still vote for Thompson with Gingrich on the ticket, but my

    clear choice for PRESIDENT IS FRED THOMPSON!

    • Joe H.

      Victor,
      Check out Duncan Hunter!!!!

      • usmadgirl

        Joe H,

        Did you mean Duncan Hunter Sr or Jr? With either one, you, once again, share my exact opinion!

        During the presidential campaign, I did all the “questionnaires” to show the candidates whose views were closest to mine. Duncan Hunter, Sr was my first choice on all of them! He was the most conservative & represented ALL my views. For some reason, not even Fox News tried to promote him despite being Ann Coulter’s first choice. He was a great speaker, smart & quick. I got so frustrated during the debates because they rarely ever went to him! In MY flimsy opinion, he & Sarah would’ve been the perfect ticket to have won the election & we wouldn’t be in this disgusting mess!

        Duncan Hunter, Jr who took his dad’s place in the 52nd Dist of CA, has the same conservative views of his dad.

        • Joe H.

          USmadgirl,
          I was speaking of Sr. I have been E-mailing him telling him to PLEASE run again!!! He is against amnesty, for fining all employers that employ them, if caught he is for DEPORTATION. I can all but guarantee that this backdoor deal made between O-man and the unions wouldn’t have happened on his watch either! He is a staunch conservative!!! I pray he decides to run and the repubs have enough sense to pick up on him!!

          • usmadgirl

            Joe H,

            I read everything about him during the campaign & looked last night to see what he was doing now. One site said he was a conservative columnist & I tried to go to the site to get his news letter, unsuccessfully. As I mentioned, he was Ann Coulter’s choice & I thought that with her ‘loud mouth’ & clout, she could’ve put the spotlight on him, but from what I’ve read, she might’ve hurt him with her statement about Elizabeth Edwards. He was last on some of the Republican lists in the campaign (with only 3% of the vote). I guess he was just too decent a man for most to consider! It looks like his son is following in his footsteps.

            People were looking for a “Reagan Conservative” when it was right in front of them in Duncan Hunter. I would back him in every way possible! Maybe we can mention him to the Tea Party movement to help back & promote him. ‘Tea Party Express’ paid for a campaign ad for Scott Brown that I saw today on Fox. I could mention him (Hunter) to TeaPartyNation as well.

            If you have his e-mail address, I’d love to have it to beg him to run!

            Thanks

          • Joe H.

            USmadgirl,
            I went to the townhall site and at the bottom of the page typed in Duncan Hunter and clicked on columns. on the one column there is a space to click on for his E-mail!!! I haven’t gotten on back as undeliverable!!! I misspoke, he is responsible for 59 miles of the border fence between the California and Mexican border dropping crime substantially there!!!

        • Bob

          Amen on Duncan Hunter! Fred Thompson is in the top three, but amen for Duncan Hunter! He will never win though, because most Americans can’t stand or understand common sense.

          • usmadgirl

            Bob,

            Like I told Joe H, Duncan Hunter was the closest candidate to a true “Reagan Conservative”, but either people couldn’t SEE it, or that he wasn’t given the coverage that the KNOWN candidates were or Republicans didn’t KNOW what they were looking for.

            I think he’d have a better chance this time than the 2008 election because I think the Republican party has changed their tune. I honestly believe they’ve learned their lesson & are looking for something totally different (true conservatives) than they were in 2008. We “tolerated” moderates because that’s what we thought it would take to win the election, but that’s what destroyed us & is causing the total destruction of our country now. We don’t need RINOs! We need someone like Duncan Hunter who shares ALL of our conservative values. We don’t NEED any “fence straddlers”! If you can’t make up your mind what you stand for, how can you stand for anything?

  • SMRTNUP

    Well, . . It’s pretty clear that anything arrived at by reason and common sense is NEVER going to be allowed by our Government. . . That applies to Terrorism, The BIG LIE about Global Warming, Health Care Reform {NOT NEEDED}, . Deficit Spending, and ON and ON and ON !!! . . .
    While I encourage everyone who is eligible to VOTE ONE TIME, . . and ONLY ONE TIME, . . I truly don’t believe Americans can ever fix what’s REALLY WRONG with America today by voting ANYBODY into a government seat !!! . . . We’ve got to find ways to begin making right the wrong things and installing the right things somewhere between where we are today and anarchy and dictatorship !!! . . .
    The only good thing which I can see that the current POTUS has done is to show us how VULNERABLE we really are to the infiltration of our top Governmental Office by the most dreaded enemies of our Nation !!! . . . Just one short year ago we could never have believed THAT to be possible, . . much less probable !!! . . .
    GOD BLESS AMERICA, . . AGAIN !!! . . .

  • tressa

    I like Newt Gingrich, and I believe he is a brilliant man, but if the Republicans want the White House in 2012, they’d better find “The Prince on the White Horse” with new and fresh ideas, and an agenda to restore our country and that person to me is General David Petraeus. He is a dark horse, and is reluctant to run at this time, but to me he would win the White House and restore our country to its rightful place. This administration is systematically changing our country to something we will not recognize in a few years, it is an insane road to Socialism, but we have one hope, and that is the people are starting to wake up and they will show their disfavor of this administration at the voting booth in November. If the President wants to win in 2012 he should make a correction in his agenda because if he doesn’t he will lose ala Carter. We must watch this race in Mass. If Brown squeaks in; and the possibility of this is much more apparent as the days go by, this is a game changer, this crushes the Dems mandate, and this is an indication of what the people are feeling and thinking all over this country, and the Dems are well aware of it..that is why they are pulling out all stops to demonize anyone opposed to Coakley or her liberal agenda…We experienced this during the administration of Woodrow Wilson..and we almost became a dictatorship, so it is nothing new. Does anyone realize that Wilson jailed 1500 dissidents who opposed his policies without trial? This happened in the United States of America…Freedom is everything, if we have freedom we have everything.

    • doctor t

      You know, Tressa, you may have hit the proverbial nail on the head! I never thought of Petraeus. I think you’re brilliant!

      How about starting a DP PAC?

      • Curtis S

        hahaha… everytime you Americans go to war you end-up anointing the winning general or some other high-ranking officer as president. However, unlike Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, Zachary Taylor, Franklin Pierce, Ulysses Grant, Rutherford Hayes, James Garfield, William McKinley, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower… General Petraeus hasn’t won anything yet. What about that general from the first Iraq war, that guy that looked like Lee Iacocca, Norman Schwarzkopf! Oh wait, he wasn’t allowed to finish the job so he’s not really a winner. Oh well, y’all might as well just elect Sarah Palin and do what her Faux News propaganda forces tell you do. hahaha

        • Joe H.

          OOps, 55.00!!!

        • eyeswideopen

          Curtis, you mean, Ms.” also, therefore, progress the country”, gal? The one who wanted to lie about what political party her husband belonged to for 7 years? The Fox deal will really show her lack of knowledge on all the important issues. Only in America can you be a quitter and still make millions. LOL.

          • Curtis S

            I don’t get it. When you elect a leader, don’t you want the best person, the smartest person? I love hanging out with real people, people who hunt, people who work with their hands, people who are real, but when it comes to running my country I want the smartest person. I want the person that skipped all of the frat parties, because he or she was too busy studying to get that A+ or working to pay for college. Running country isn’t about electing the guy you want to have a beer with (Bush). Since when does having an education make you an elitist? Sorry, I want my leaders to be smart and I want them to have graduated from something better than community college. There’s nothing wrong with an Ivy League degree (as long as it wasn’t obtained because of your family name). I can’t believe you conservatives don’t want the best, the best for your country, the best for your families and the best for yourselves. I’m okay with the Faux News love for Palin, it cracks me up, but I’m starting to think a lot of conservatives are actually serious about electing this woman. She has a poor grasp of geography, history, and the English language. Four years isn’t enough time to make this woman smart enough to be a high school president never mind electing her POTUS. But hey, it’s your country.

          • Joe H.

            eyes,
            Yeah just like him, an educated fool who is book smart and experience dumb!!!! I’m up to 62.50 now!!! I’ll have your ticket anyday now dude!!!

          • Curtis S

            JoeH what’s taking so long? You know you’d be able to raise the money a lot faster if you charged more than 2-bits a customer.

      never thought of that one, terrific idea, him and sarah palin or vice versa would nake a great ticket.

  • Warrior

    Crisis, crisis, crisis – we need to generate more government jobs. I’m telling you folks, soon there will not be enough private jobs left to fund the public sector. At that point we will have to look elsewhere for revenue. Maybe take over a few countries that american manufacturing moved to.

  • James

    Our next president will be Sarah Palin. She’ll run against President Obama in 2012, as an Independent. Prior to Obama, we only had white men as presidents now, after a black man, a white woman is in order. Don’t believe it? watch what happens, before Obama ran for president, whoeveer heard of him? Palin will be a shoo-in, every woman in the U.S. will vote for her.

    • Saaronco

      Right on James…could a women do any worse than what is now mucking up our great nation? NO, of course not! Sarah Palin is what we, the people ,need. not some arrogant-know-it-all(but really knows nothing about people or their lives).
      Ya..I’m one women who would work for and vote for Gov. Palin. But not just because she is a women,James. Just listen to her..she has the guts (which some men don’t) too speak up and tell it like it is!

      Let Gov. Palin know if you believe she is the one we(the people) want and need to lead this great nation back from the mess Obomb(pun intented) had gotten us into!

      • Curtis S

        Hahaha you guys are killing me. You’re going to let the Australian Rupert Murdoch take over your country through his puppet Sarah Palin. Didn’t you hear Bill O’Reilly explain (very slowly) how Sarah Palin could use her “show” to neutralize 60 Minutes. What Bill meant was she would have instant damage control after she crams her foot in her mouth. (You haven’t forgotten the classics… “Newspapers? I read all of them” or when asked three times about the Bush Doctrine… “Whad’ya mean Charlie?”). In the future, anytime lovely Sarah simultaneously says something stupid while mangling the English language, her spin doctors (and she’ll need a LOT of ‘em) can get her to fix the damage ON HER VERY OWN FAUX-TV SHOW! (Double pun on “faux tv show” was intentional.) When she gets elected she’ll owe it all to her Australian puppet master. Want to know who’ll be yanking the strings of your next president? Check the link
        http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2004/07/b122948.html
        Go ahead and elect her in 2012, and watch the world laugh at you and ignore the USA for four years! Maybe Uncle Rupert will make you all Australian states… the United States of Australia! Hahaha.

          • Curtis S

            Hahaha DaveH are you trotting out that website again? The majority of the top ten countries on your list are all what YOU would call socialist and Barrack Obama would be considered a neo-conservative in most of those countries. Most of your top ten list of countries have the kind of gun laws that make most of the people on this website screaming about Nazi Germany and “keeping their powder dry”. Most of the countries on your top ten list have very high (35% +) income tax rates. So what exactly is your point? Big Government doesn’t work or let’s be more like the socialist, gun-controlled, highly income taxed countries on the heritage.org website (crutch) that you keep leaning on? Oh… DaveH… most of the countries on your top ten list have universal healthcare too. I thought you were against all that stuff? Why do you keep mentioning these countries when they represent everything you’re against?
            PS… nice try with the personal attack, but you missed. Barrack Obama isn’t my messiah. hahaha

            I will read about all 183 of them.

    • usmadgirl

      James,

      Not every woman will vote for her. Sad, but true! Some are just down right jealous of her, but most “elite” hate her for being a REAL woman instead of a wo-MAN because she has moral values & they don’t understand how a woman could be against abortion & have family values so they think she’s an idiot. She scares most of them because they live in their little ivory towers & they’ve never been near a real person, let alone a real woman! Those are the exact reasons I admire her so much. Except for being absolutely gorgeous, she’s just a regular person like I am!

      • Claire

        As I said in another post, time will tell. Again in another post, I also said she was becoming more smarter. She will gain more and more confidence by the time 2012 arrives. This past year has made a difference, I can see it. And I agree with you, she is very pretty. Honestly, she looks a lot like my daughter. Everyone may very well be in for a rude awakening. She may very well be elected President. Sure, I rave about Margaret Thatcher being so great, hey maybe Sarah will be just as good. We have 2 years, and a lot can happen.
        And aren’t you the one that said “Hildebeast?” I will never forget that!! My husband and I laughed and laughed.

    • eyeswideopen

      James, you are so wrong. Intelligent women, who were Republicans voted for Obama, just to make sure, someone of that intelligence would not be a heartbeat away from the Presidency. We were not fooled by the womens vote ploy that McCain and his crew thought would work. The shame is that the Republican party has many qualified and intelligent women they could have tapped, instead of Ms. “also therefore”. Why would the women of this country reward someone who quit their term half way thru?

      • Joe H.

        yeah and now 65% of them are regretting their vote!!!! Sure sounds like a match made in heaven or a little lower!!!

  • Dee

    Who is running the Country? Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid or ‘Obama’?? The ‘brainless’ idea to hold the ‘Terrorists’ trials in NYC or DC is just another ‘attack’ on Bush/Cheney & the CIA… It’s all ‘George Bush’s Fault’ ….For Eric Holder & Obama to have been ‘lawyers’, makes me wonder why they are making the decisions they are…very STUPID JUDGEMENT … I agree with ‘Warrior’ .. crisis, crisis, crisis,… hurry, hurry, hurry .. before the American citizens realize what we’re up to!! SOCIALISM, SOCIALISM, SOCIALISM… It won’t be long before the poor people of ‘Haiti’ are taken over by Obama, and will be ‘slaves’ again..

    Most of us normal Americans don’t need a present or former politicians to tell us something we already know. Unless your a Democrat or a Liberal. Then Newt’s statement should be considered a public service.

      ROBERT – Maybe we ought to try to get Newt and other politicians to keep their fat jaws shut and let us think they are stupid as for them to spew propaganda and convince us we are wiser than they are and know whats best for us. But, how smart are we? We keep electing the same ones and they keep getting richer at our expense. We could create our own term limits by voting out all incombents.

  • Harry Buttle

    It would be risky to try the ‘underwear bomber’ in a military tribunal. Two of the first three tried under the military commisions act of 2006 were released and the third plea-bargained for a nine month sentence in Australia. By contrast, Richard Reid and Moussaoui were both sentenced to life in prison following convictions in civilan courts. Also, it’s doubtful that Abdulmutallab’s crime, similar to that of Reid, qualifies for a military commission trial under the conditions established by the Supreme Court. There are about three dozen persons imprisoned in the Federal ADX Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado after being convicted in civilian court for terrorism-related crimes.

    I don’t know about the statements about Sarah Palin. Curious, I asked ten women so far about Palin, 6 Democrats and 4 Republicans. Only one said she would vote for Palin. Most said Palin seems to be confused and uninformed. Two mentioned Palin’s comments about secession and her husband’s long association with the secessionist AIP party in Alaska. Several mentioned her scandal-plagued career as governor and two are convinced that she resigned in a deal to avoid jail time.

      i think four of those people lied to you about their party affiliation.
      palin looks like a winner, like i said, when the demos start making derogatory remarks about someone, that someone has them scared. jail time!!!hohoho

    • Claire

      Harry–according to Islam/Muslim beliefs, the prisoner would be considered a “Martyr” if tried in a military court. Therefore, Islams/Muslims would think this to be wonderful. However, the prisoner is to be tried in a “civilian” court, therefore the Islams/Muslims lose “face.”

      • Claire

        Harry—most of the women I know do like Palin, but they do not think she is ready to be President. These women think she is more of an entertainer, and they don’t appear to take her seriously at this time. However, time will tell.

        Hi Claire, What would they think about the trial in civilian court having a female judge and a number of female jurors.

    North Korea = 12 years of hard labor, Iran = you are detained indefinitely, cross the Afghan border = you get shot, Saudi = your jailed, cross the Chinese border = you may never be heard from again, the Venezuelan border = your branded a spy and your fate well what do you thank, cuba = you go to prison for life and not like life in an American prison you could only hope for that, Now heres my favorite >>> Cross the U.S. Border ILLEGALLY you get, A Job, A Drivers License, A Social Security Card, Welfare/Food Stamps, Credit Cards, Subsidized Rent or a Loan to buy a House, Free Education, Free Health Care, A Lobbyist in Washington, Billions of Dollars worth of public documents printed in your Language, The right to carry your Country’s Flag while you protest that you don’t get enough RESPECT, And in many instances, you can VOTE, Did i miss anything.

    lets let umar lose face and try him in civilian court, hahaha
    i can hear it now, first offense, indoctrinated by his peers and look ladies and gentleman of the jury he’s really happy that the bomb didn’t go off and he loves “obumbo” jury verdict: “not guilty” by reason of being from a poor third world nation, bomb didn’t go off and he loves “obumbo”, judge: penalty will be 2 years paid vacation.

    lets make him a martyr and try him by military tribunal and when he is hung the jihad’ist can dance in the street and we can all be happy. “vote for palin-duncan hunter or petreaus” every woman i know thinks palin is our next president and they love her especially her entertaining powers.

      Chuck b — I have heard and read that if a Muslim/Islam terrorist is tried in a civilian court, they lose face. If tried in a Military tribunal they become a martyr and the terrorist would be considered honorable by his co-horts. I was simply stating what I heard and read. Is this incorrect? Have you heard and read otherwise? I am serious on this. I don’t want him tried in a civilian court either if he gets off. And here I was hoping he would get convicted and then get the death penalty. I believe he should get the death penalty. All terrorists that want to harm America should get the death penalty.

    my concern with umar being tried in a civilian court is the danger of our jury system. the defense attorneys, depending on their caliber, can hand pick jurists to a great extent and the prosecuting attorney’s in this case will no doubt be from the current administration (holder)and i think their sympathy will be for the defendant this could lead to him getting a far less penalty than the death sentence. i think we should fear the people who may be behind the defense in this case. thats why i think he should be tried in the military court. even if the civilian court gave him the death penalty it would never happen.

      chuck b–Now I’ll worry about this. If I were a lawyer there would be NO WAY I would take this creep’s case and try to defend him! I would never forgive myself if he got off!! You speak a lot of truth, and I realize our criminal justice system is not quite up to par. I have often wondered how a lot of the criminals get off with just a slap on the wrist, when they should have been put away. I should have remembered this, but I guess in a sense I was putting too much trust where it doesn’t belong. Live and learn. Thanks for your input.

        chuck b—I have received numerous jury duty requests. Years and years ago I served on a DUI case, and have never served since. I call it like it is, if they are guilty, then convict them. I don’t think they want to hear that so consequently, I don’t get “picked.”

        • Claire

          Chuck b—Holder!!! Egad, I never liked that guy. Good grief, I should have THOUGHT about him too. And I don’t like Geithner. Here I go again–their “body language” tells me a lot about them. Nope, neither one is trustworthy. They are not honest sincere people.

          Claire,
          I, like chuck b. worry about our system as there are too many loop holes in the legal system!!! he trips going into his cell and poof he gets off!!! Call him a name outside the court house and he gets a mistrial and a change of venue as he can’t get a fair trial anywhere in the nation!!!

    If Newt is making negative comments about ANYTHING or ANYONE he must have decided he won’t run.
