The question for conservatives is, “Why is Newt Ginrich branded as radical?” Is he really radical or is the claim just a smokescreen to cover up the truth?

You know, the military has a saying regarding supervisors that goes, “If you find your name with unflattering words on the latrine walls you must be doing your job.” That means that if you do your job the way it was intended to be done, you will ruffle some feathers.

And as I see it that is what’s happening with Newt Ginrich – he is saying things the left and the uninformed just do not want to hear. He is telling the truth.

For instance, he is pro-Israel, something the left cannot stomach. Plus, when he said the Arabs had no legitimate claim to the lands they call Palestine, the left almost went into orbit. You see, if there is one thing the left absolutely abhors, it is the truth.

The former Speaker of the House of Representatives based his analysis on history. After all, he is a former history professor. But even more important is what the Scripture has to say on the subject. “And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God” (Gen 17:7-8).

We know the land of Canaan included all of present-day Israel and much more. So, Newt Ginrich was right in his analysis. Not only was he right but he is the only one running for the Republican presidential nomination who has had the courage to put truth ahead of political correctness. And I admire him for that.

And anyone willing to stand with and defend Israel has my vote!

The former Speaker has also drawn the ire of even some on the right who seem to want it both ways. While all conservatives are fully aware that progressive judges routinely rule against the Constitution, as soon as someone is smart enough to take them on – those same conservatives scream blood murder.

In his statement which the media deemed controversial, Ginrich was referring to a federal judge who ruled that the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance was unconstitutional. In response, the former Speaker said that judge should be removed from the bench. However, realizing such would not an easy task; he said he favored eliminating that individual court. And, gone with the court would be the “law-making” judge.

Ginrich also said he favors eliminating the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California because of its judicial activism. Without a doubt, the 9th is the most progressive court of appeals in the nation.

It sounds to me like he has a good plan. For, as long as progressive judges remain in office, they will continue to render progressive decisions, decisions which are contrary to the Constitution. But for some unknown reason, many on the right do not like his plan. They would rather opt for the status quo which is taking us ever and ever closer to Communism. Maybe the real reason so many disagree with the former Speaker is that they didn’t think of it first.

But, according to Ginrich, the idea did not begin with him. In fact, he said it had been used in the past. A number of judges had decided to make their own laws, so the Administration proceeded to take necessary action that would eventually do away with their positions. And it worked.

There also seems to be a problem with the amount of money the former Speaker has made since leaving Congress. One thing in particular his opponents point to is the money he received from Freddie Mac. It seems Freddie paid Newt for advice. Since when has that been a crime?

Maybe it’s not really the advice they don’t like or that he got paid. Maybe it’s the amount he got paid, reportedly more than $1 million. Since Freddie is now on everybody’s attack list, some see Ginrich as fair game.

But it’s not just the Republicans who have Ginrich in their sites. The Democrats are absolutely frightened by the prospect he will gain the nomination and Obama will have to face him in debates. And anyone having watched the Republican debates can understand their anguish.

Just imagine Obama (without teleprompter) and Newt face to face. While the President can spend 60 seconds saying nothing, the former Speaker can recite early-American history in the same time. Newt knows more about how this nation was founded than Obama wile ever come to understand.

Most people consider Newt Ginrich as a man of great intelligence. And that seems to be the rub since some people simply cannot stand someone who seems to have answers. And I guess that should be understandable since during the last two administrations, every time a difficult decision had to be made a study committee was formed.

After all, it’s become vogue for politicians to defer any and all major decisions to study committees or commissions, as though they will miraculously find the answer when no one else could. Who can forget the Debt Commission and Super Committee? The truth is that study committees and commissions are nothing more than a ploy. As one of my old supervisors used to say about paid consultants, “If things do not work out, it’s good to have an outside group to blame.”

And that is where Newt Ginrich is different. Whether one likes or dislikes his ideas, rest assured he is not afraid to make decisions. I like that. I like to know just where a candidate stands on issues; none of this beating around the bush – just saying it like it is.

So, who is the real radical, the one willing to say what he believes in or someone who keeps everyone guessing just what he stands for? You be the judge!
