Sarah Palin Urges Newt Vote in Florida, Says Gingrich Will ‘Clobber’ Obama | Newsmax

Sarah Palin is urging Florida voters to vote for Newt Gingrich on Tuesday in their state’s Republican primary.

“Vote for Newt,” Palin told Jeanine Pirro, host of the Fox News weekend program “Justice with Jeanine.”
Palin made a passionate plea for Republican voters to reject Mitt Romney in Florida to keep the primary process going forward.

The former Alaska governor made it crystal clear that she favors former House Speaker Gingrich, suggesting that the Republican establishment in New York and Washington is trying to anoint former Massachusetts Gov. Romney the GOP nominee.

“And I say, you know, you’ve got to rage against the machine at this point in order to defend our republic and save what is good and secure and prosperous about our nation,” Palin said. “We need somebody who is engaged in sudden and relentless reform and is not afraid to shake up the establishment. So, if for no other reason, rage against the machine, vote for Newt, annoy a liberal, vote Newt, keep this vetting process going, keep the debate going.”

Here are key points Palin made on Fox:

  • “Ronald Reagan wasn’t afraid to take on sitting members of his own party who were in office. He challenged a sitting Republican. He knew politics of personal destruction hurt the cause of conservatism. What we see today what happened there in Florida this past week — it’s gone beyond the pale, gone beyond aggressive and fair campaigning against an opponent.”
  • Rick Santorum pointed out that Romney “drew first blood, and at first, Newt Gingrich didn’t respond — he wanted to take the high road . . . [Newt] announced his intention to take the high road, but when you’re continually hit and bombarded with negative rewritten history about yourself and your record, you have to hit back. And that’s what you saw Newt Gingrich engage in . . .”
  • “I’ve been the proponent of continuing this vetting process and aggressive debate. It should be fair though the healthy debate that our country the electorate will benefit from . . . We see these pundits and politicos and elites and the far away Washington, D.C., beltway telling the electorate that by Florida it’s going to be all wrapped up and we’ll have our nominee.”
  • “Well, look at the players in the establishment who are fighting so hard against [Newt]. They want to crucify him because he’s tapped into that average everyday American tea party, grass-roots movement that has said enough is enough of the establishment that tries to run the show and tweak rules and laws and regulations for their own good and not for our nation’s own good.”
  • “Both party machines and many in the media are trying to crucify Newt Gingrich for bucking the tide and bucking the establishment. That tells you something. I say you have got to rage against the machine at this point in order to defend our republic . . . Vote for Newt, annoy a liberal. Vote Newt. Keep this vetting process going.”
  • “Which candidate is most passionate about the sudden and relentless reform that’s needed? Which candidate understands that government is not the answer? Not on a state level — same when it comes to mandating what level of healthcare you must purchase? . . . I’ve appreciated again Newt Gingrich. His style in debates, his thinking, his way of explaining what he stands for, so I think that in a debate Newt Gingrich would clobber Barack Obama. That’s one step closer to the voters being able to have a tool to make up their minds whether it should be Obama or the GOP nominee.”

Governor Scott Pushes for Auto Insurance Fraud Reform

Launches Hire Florida’s Heroes Campaign

This week, I urged the House and the Senate to send me a bill that addresses auto insurance fraud in Florida and lowers the cost of living in our state. PIP fraudsters cause auto insurance premiums to skyrocket, and honest Floridians pay the price. Floridians are fed up with being cheated by scammers who get a payday while innocent citizens get stuck with the bill. Our broken no-fault system is a hidden billion-dollar tax on Floridians. It drags on our economy and slows growth, and we must take action to stop the fraud. I am confident that working with the Legislature, we will get this done.

Also this week, I joined business, military, veteran and workforce leaders during the annual Florida National Guard Day at the Capitol. Together we launched the Hiring Florida’s Heroes campaign to connect our returning veterans with job opportunities in our state. Hiring Florida’s Heroes is a smart move for businesses and the right thing to do for our veterans and their families.

If you are an employer interested in hiring a hero, please call 1-866-FLA-2345 or visit veterans.employflorida.com.

Have a great weekend.

jpegAs a mother, grandmother and an advocate for Florida’s children, First Lady Ann Scott understands the importance both reading and literacy play in the development of our children. An avid reader herself, she is always looking for ways to share her passion for reading with Florida students. This week she kicked off Florida’s fourth annual Celebrate Literacy Week by participating in events around the state that encouraged students to read at least 20 minutes every day.

On Monday, the First Lady announced the beginning of the Million Minute Marathon at Sarasota Middle School. Mrs. Scott also spoke to students about her passion for reading and the many ways it can help them succeed in school.

The First Lady also announced the winners of the Celebrate Literacy Week Public Service Announcement contest at the Daytona International Speedway on Wednesday. This year’s PSA contest focused on the theme “Take the Lead and Read.” Students from around the state created 30-second public service announcements to promote reading in Florida.

Mrs. Scott appreciates the efforts of the Florida Department of Education and Just Read, Florida! as well as the partnering sponsors of Celebrate Literacy Week, including the Florida Lottery, Scholastic, Florida Education Foundation, Learning A-Z, Daytona International Speedway, National Geographic and Novachi.

Mrs. Scott encourages students around the state to pick up a book and make reading a part of their daily routine. Just 20 minutes a day beyond the regular school reading program can help students be more successful in school.


This week Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll participated in several military meetings.

On Monday as the Governor’s Designee to the Florida Defense Task Force, she met with fellow task force members to discuss the importance of a Florida gem, Eglin Air Force Base, and how to grow and expand the military mission there.

On Tuesday, the Lt. Governor joined Governor Scott, both Navy Veterans, to support our troops and veterans at the annual Military Day at the Capitol.

In addition, the Lt. Governor organized a meeting with private and public partners to meet with Nancy Natoli, program coordinator for the Readiness and Environmental Protection Initiative run out of the Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Installations and Environment. Nancy and the State of Florida are working with our military installations and our conservation partners to find ways to protect our environment and our military missions at the same time. It’s a nice coincidence that Nancy’s visit came on military day!

Rev. Wildmon: Palin Right, Newt Is ‘Crucified’ by Romney Allies


Rev. Widmon and Sarah Palin say it best about Newt Gingrich and vicious attacks by the republican establishment.

Breaking News from Newsmax.com
Rev. Wildmon: Palin Is Right, Newt Being ‘Crucified’ One of the nation’s most influential Christian and family leaders, the Rev. Donald E. Wildmon, says Sarah Palin is right, Newt Gingrich is being “crucified” by the Republican establishment and forces allied with Mitt Romney.

Wildmon, founder of the American Family Association, has strongly endorsed Gingrich for president, and this week has been urging fellow believers to vote in Florida’s primary for the former House Speaker.

Wildmon has spent decades on the front-lines of the battle to protect American families and says Gingrich is the best choice for Christian conservatives who want a president to stand against a rising tide of secularism and anti-Christian sentiment.

On Thursday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin stated on the Fox Business channel: “Look at Newt Gingrich, what’s going on with him via the establishment’s attacks. They’re trying to crucify this man and rewrite history and rewrite what it is that he has stood for all these years.”

In an interview with Newsmax Friday, Wildmon told Newsmax “That’s very tough language. But I think it’s probably pretty accurate.”

Wildmon said Gingrich is up against entrenched political forces who are “absolutely” trying to dictate who wins the GOP nomination.

“The mainstream media and the established Republicans would rather have anybody than Newt,” Wildmon said. “This is what really worries them. [Thursday] they went on a rampage, got five or six well known people, former colleagues of his, criticizing him. They’re going after him. That’s going to be his biggest obstacle to overcome.”

Asked why he didn’t endorse former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, as have several other Christian leaders, Wildmon replied: “You’re basically going to vote for the man you think can do the best job. I believe that Newt, of all the candidates, can do a better job of getting the country back to where it’s supposed to be.”

Wildmon has also stated that Gingrich passes two key criteria: he’s the only candidate who can defeat both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

Rev. Wildmon is aware that some have criticized Gingrich for his personal life and “baggage.”

But Wildmon says he has met privately with Gingrich and believes he is a changed man and has accepted Christ as his savior.

“I think it’s genuine and sincere,” Wildmon told Newsmax, “Only Newt and God know his heart. But by every visible aspect, I think it’s genuine.”

Wildmon also expressed grave doubts about the strength of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s commitment to social issues that Christians care about.

Wildmon asserted that Romney “will not be reliable. Romney is Obama-lite.”

The conservative family advocate said the stakes in the 2012 election are huge. “If we lose this race,” he said, “if Mr. Obama gets a second term, or if Mr. Romney gets in, it’s the end of Western civilization as we know it.”

Wildmon added that he gives the former House Speaker a 50-50 chance of winning the nomination, due to the powerful establishment interests arrayed against him.

Sarah Palin: Newt ‘Crucified’ by Romney Allies, She Praises Newt

Breaking from Newsmax.comSarah Palin: Newt ‘Crucified’ by Romney Allies, GOP Establishment

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says that Newt Gingrich is being “crucified” by the Republican establishment, including allies of Mitt Romney, who are trying to rewrite his record with a barrage of negative attacks.

“Look at Newt Gingrich, what’s going on with him via the establishment’s attacks,” Palin told John Stossel of Fox Business on Thursday.

She added: “They’re trying to crucify this man and rewrite history and rewrite what it is that he has stood for all these years.”

Palin has not endorsed any of the GOP presidential candidates, but has been enthusiastically supportive of Gingrich.

Last week before the South Carolina GOP primary Palin said she would vote for Newt Gingrich if she was voting in that state’s primary.

Palin’s husband, Todd, has officially endorsed Gingrich for president.

Sarah Palin explained her husband’s endorsement of Gingrich: “I think that endorsement was real reflective of a lot of Americans who understand that somebody with experience in cutting government budgets, cutting taxes — which does more for liberty and an economic turnaround than anything else — someone who has waged war on Hillarycare and government taking over of healthcare — somebody with that experience plus somebody who has struggled personally and overcome struggles and challenges — would be one that was embraced by voters.”

And Sarah Palin’s defense of Gingrich, especially of his conservative, Reaganite record, has gotten significant backing from leading conservatives.

On Thursday, Rush Limbaugh slammed Romney allies for a “coordinated attack” on Gingrich.

Limbaugh described Gingrich as the “premier defender of Ronald Reagan” and said such smear tactics against Gingrich hurt Mitt Romney.

“That kind of stuff is why people hate Romney so much,” Limbaugh said.

Palin also struck out at conservative writers like Washington Post columnist George Will and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, who earlier this month called Gingrich an “angry little attack muffin.”

“That’s that typical hypocrisy stuff in the media, you know, I’ve lived with over a couple of decades in the political arena,” she told Stossel, complaining that Mitt Romney doesn’t get the same treatment.

Last week, in a radio interview with Sean Hannity, Palin blasted ABC News for its interview with Gingrich’s ex-wife, Marianne Gingrich, saying these kinds of media hits “incentivize conservatives and independents” who are tired of “the politics of personal destruction.”

“We know the game now, and we just won’t put up with it. Good call, media.”

Romney is suffering a major backlash from conservatives outraged by his tactics.

Michael Reagan, the conservative commentator and son of President Reagan, slammed Romney for his recent assault on Gingrich.

“As governor of Massachusetts, Romney’s achievement was the most socialistic healthcare plan in the nation up until that time,” Reagan said.

“Say what you want about Newt Gingrich but when he was speaker of the House he surrounded himself with Reagan conservatives and implemented a Ronald Reagan program of low taxes and restrained federal spending.

“Newt’s conservative program created a huge economic boom and balanced the budget for the first time in more than a generation.”

Mike Reagan concluded: “I would take Newt Gingrich’s record any day over Mitt Romney’s.”

House Bill 3261: SOPA – is Soup – and Nuts, Too | James Pat Guerréro

SOPA is an English acronym for the new House Bill 3261: Stop Online Piracy Act. The acronym, which means “soup” in Spanish, has unwittingly been created by Congressional Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX21). Congressman Smith, a real Texan in Spanish territory, it is presumed, should have thought of this before he created the bill. Well, this act is plain “soup” – and nuts, too.

The republicans never cease to surprise the world. For three instances, why create a bill to regulate commerce when republicans claim to promote limited government? – Aye,! says the Captain. Why impose more regulation and law enforcement on the U.S. Department of Justice when republicans claim it can not enforce security on the American border? – Aye,! says the Captain. Why even think that the Federal government could even do a better job of protecting intellectual rights than the private sector could? – Double Aye,! says the Captain.

SOPA and its sister Senate act, PIPA (Protect IP Act), have the high-sounding title, “To promote prosperity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation by combating the theft of U.S. property, and for other purposes.” In other words, the title should read, “To regulate commerce by allowing special interests to benefit over others, and for other purposes.”

As afraid as one is able to admit, the republicans have written a dangerous bill for commerce that simply can be self-regulated by free market commerce. Consequently, the American taxpayer saves his taxes, the Federal government saves its face, and free commerce does and makes the necessary corrections. Let one not oversimply state that some capitalists love to use the government to compete. That isn’t right, and its called crony capitalism. Then, let all capitalists work in the free market, which would be better in terms of pricing and available logistics for all.

2012: Another Republican Revolution


Americans, listen to wisdom. Was it not Sun Tzu in the “The Art of War” who principled a very important point in warfare: Never fight a superior force? Do Americans really believe that Mitt Romney can defeat Barack Obama, the superior force? Absolutely not BECAUSE Romney is no where close to being as tough, politically, arguably, intellectually, and wisely, as Newt Gingrich. In the presidential primary campaign Newt has shown that he is perceived like the USS George Washington (CVN-73) aircraft supercarrier to Mitt Romney like the USS Panay river gunboat on the Yangtze patrol. There is no comparison in terms of conservatism either: Newt is the conservative republican which makes the republican establishment nervous and guilty, because it has failed. It’s time for the American people to set America straight on the right course with Newt Gingrich.

Please note that the following message reflects the opinions and representations of our advertiser alone, and not necessarily the opinion or editorial positions of RedState.com or Eagle Publishing.
Dear Conservative,By a double-digit margin, we won a dramatic victory in the all-important South Carolina Primary.

We did what the establishment said could not be done and we put our campaign on a path to winning the Republican nomination. We won because people are sick of and tired of the national establishment telling them what they are allowed to think and believe, and you saw that Saturday night.

I believe that we will defeat Barack Obama in the general election, and put America back on track toward strength and prosperity. But we need your help to get there. Will you join us?

Today, our campaign turns to the crucial primary state of Florida. The race is between a clear establishment moderate in Mitt Romney and a clear Reagan conservative with a record going com_cimages_f8abfbf33437ff8f5b9cdf51302c2376_NewtHeadshot.jpgall the way back to the 1970s. It’s a stark contrast. Make no mistake, this is a battle between the conservative grassroots and the moderate establishment for the heart and soul of the Republican Party.

Conservatives are ready for somebody who will go to Washington and speak for them, not somebody who speaks on behalf of the establishment. The establishment is right to be worried about a Gingrich nomination because a Gingrich nomination means that we’re going to change things, we’re going to make them very uncomfortable and we’re going to demand real change in Washington.

Going forward, there is only one important question for conservatives to ask themselves: Who is the best candidate to defeat Barack Obama? I believe that a second term for Barack Obama will be a disaster for this country and I am committed to beating him. I think I’ve proven I could take him on in a series of debates and undo his billion-dollar campaign. It’s very important that we have a candidate who’s strong enough, and tough enough to be able to take on President Obama in a series of debates.

There is no longer any doubt that we can win the GOP nomination. The other candidates are good men whom I deeply respect, but it is time for conservatives to come together and unite behind one authentic, Reagan conservative who can win.

As I write this, Barack Obama and the Democrats are raising thousands of dollars per hour, waiting for a Republican nominee to emerge. He’s a radical, secular socialist who wants to reinvent America in the image of the faded, decrepit Republics of Western Europe.

If I become the nominee, I will hold President Obama accountable. I will defeat him in the debates and show the American people that there is a better, more conservative direction.

This is not just a Presidential campaign. It’s a battle for the future of this country. That’s why I will immediately challenge President Obama to a series of three hour Lincoln-Douglas style debates, and make him defend the passage of ObamaCare, 15 trillion dollars in debt, and out of control unemployment. I’ll even let him use his teleprompter!

But I can’t do that without your help.

Florida is only one week away, and the Romney campaign is already going back to their old ways of negative attack ads to try and tear us down. We can’t let that happen again. We must raise the necessary resources in the next 48 hours to fund our television campaign for Florida so that I can tell the truth to the American people.

Will you donate now and help us fight back?

To paraphrase President Reagan, “A recession is when your neighbor loses his job, a depression is when you lose your job, and a recovery will be when Obama loses his job.”

Your contribution and support will put us over the top in Florida and our nation one step closer putting a conservative in the White House.

Lets be bold.

For America,
Speaker Newt Gingrich
