Gingrich Asks Liberals A Question

former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich recently appeared on Fox where he spoke about the economy as well as the change in the courts and deregulation under President Trump’s command. He then asked if this was all happening in a “dysfunctional” White House, how much better could it be if operations were running smoothly.

“You have the best economy we’ve had in a long, long time, you have real progress being made in all sorts of things, you have the most successful shift in the courts in American history, you have the biggest deregulation in American history, if this is dysfunctional, what would Trump be like if he was functional?” asked Gingrich.

“Look how rapidly he has taken control of the American government where it matters and how rapidly he’s moved things,” he continues. “Shouldn’t somebody at the [New York Times] or [The Washington Post] be trying to understand what is happening right?”

    they just might be able too after they get all the drugs cool-aide and rank b.s. out of their systems and wake up from the fog they have lived in for the past 20 yrs shilling for the party of Communism and non inclusiveness.

  • Charles Almon

    If the economy is so good
    why does Trump the Federal Workers
    and the military to forego their raises?

    • Mike Gardner

      The military got one of the best raises they’ve gotten in decades. The federal civilian workforce has been getting consistent pay raises for years and are overpaid. For years the federal civilian jobs have had the benefit of job security. The trade off was that wages were not as good as the strictly civilian jobs. That changed a decade+ ago and it shouldn’t have.

      Now they have job security and great pay. It shouldn’t be that way and encourages people to homestead in their jobs rather than moving on as they had done in the past.

      • Charles Almon

        Military got bigger raises under Obama.
        WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?

        • TRUE AMERICAN

          Name One Troll!!!

          • Charles Almon

            Fred Smith

        • kbmiller

          When Postal workers and SEIU janitors make more than the military and get better benefits, SOMETHING is wrong.

        • Mike Gardner

          Wrong as usual. Pathetic pay raises under anti-military Obama. All under 2% and a couple were 1%, a 1.3%, 1.4%, 1.6%, 1.7%. Check your stats. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_pay

          P.S. i’m seeing the pay raises in MY paychecks so I should know.

    • Tom

      You are uninformed. President Trump has promoted military pay raises.

      • Charles Almon

        Wrong. He asked the troops the “GIVE THEM UP”.
        to be “Patriotic”,
        No one in audience raised their hands,
        Guess you missed that speech.
        Find it.

        • Tom

          Show a credible source of your point.

          • Charles Almon

            Oh please it was on every news station the day he made the speech.
            About 10 days ago,

          • Tom

            You are failing miserably. You seem to be about the only person who is making this claim. I happen to know otherwise. I deal with military personnel.

          • Charles Almon

            It’s not a “claim”. On every news channel, perhaps not the crap you watch.
            Trump asked for a show of hands, and non of the troops raised a hand.
            What your dealing with military personal has anything to do with anything is relevant to nothing,
            I never claimed this was some official policy.
            He made an off hand comment during a speech and dodn’t get the result he was hoping for.

    • kbmiller

      Didn’t he forgo all of his salary? About time congress takes a hit in theirs.

      • Charles Almon

        OOOOooooo he “gave up” $400,000 — to use his office reap TEN OF MILLIONS
        in personal profits for himself and his family. Trump divested himself of NOTHING
        Are you insane?
        TO spend $3,000,000 of YOUR money to golf every weekend and promote his businesses

        • kbmiller

          I know that an almond is a nut. Add a, “d” at the end of your last name, you flaming dimwit. Go whine to someone who cares. Perhaps your friends on LGBTQ sites. Prove your allegations, idiot.

        • twostickmack

          how much more does it cost to fly to hawaii and rent fancy hotels to play golf?trump pays nothing for hotels in florida.

          • Charles Almon

            He goes EVERY WEEKEND and his security detail and flights total $3,000,000.
            It also cost FLORIDA millions. Do some homework,

          • twostickmack

            its many times more to hawaii.where was the outcry?the president dosent even want his salary.obama accepted his.

        • EdWatts

          “Tens of millions” doesn’t mean much to a billionaire. And he “reaps” nothing, unlike Billy and Barry.

    • mike skinner

      get it right, only the federal workers. the military already got the raise. they cannot return it.

      • kbmiller

        Looks like Charles is a bit confused, in more ways than 1.

      • Charles Almon

        Guess you missed the speech to the troops
        where he asked them to give them up – TO BE PATRIOTIC.No one raised their hands,

    • big KAhuna

      You try and pay down a $20 trillion deficit left by OBama who financially raped our country- elaborate vacations billions spent, high salaries to huge staff assigned to the White House and elaborate parties, and many additional Govt positions added to support his Czars etc etc. He was worth 8 million when he took office and in 8 grueling years he left with over $50 mil in his bank account- ( impossible to do on a $400,000/ yrly salary). That’s an investigation worthy of pursuing!

      • VeryWhiteConservative

        Indeed it is

  • TRUE AMERICAN

    They are not interested (Lamestream media, RINOS and Demoncraps) in getting anything correct. They all are purposely spreading all their propaganda BS on the dumb ass public who wouldn’t have the good sense to come in out of the rain. SAD!! Sorry Jon they are only interested in the destruction of America even if it means their own ass. This attitude tells me this is something else. They are evil satanic POS just like their god “Oblowzo” who did ITS level best to destroy America socially, econonomically

    • Douglas Sherrow, LTG

      I would assume that God knew the Donald only cares about his donors, buddies and influential friends. How are you personally benefiting? Do you not have parents that depend on vanishing SS and/or medicare?

      • TRUE AMERICAN

        Dear D.S. LTG a/k/a Dumb Shit, Libtard To Go
        The third word in your comment reveals what you are. Obviously, deeply steeped in Assumption. Way too ignorant to realize that when you assume anything, as you did with regard to what God knew, you will be wrong eleven times out of ten. As you are and most likely have been your entire worthless existence. You and your brainless Trolls should go do…you know what…by you know who…and leave the commentary to the coherent!!

        • Douglas Sherrow, LTG

          I assume you are illiterate as your response lacks any clarity and in no way addresses the issues. I paid into SS for 45 years, why am I not entitled to MY money?

          • big KAhuna

            Get real— your platform and who you support says it all— we don’t care for your twisted ideologies or unsupported opinions. Your opposition to the greatest POTUS to every hold that job in spite of all the good he has already done speaks volumes to your warped mindset and inability to resurrect the corruption/ destruction of our values from within. You and your antiamerican platform are the problem. No longer will you hide behind the guise of political correctness ( tool invented by the Dems to cloak their corruption/Lies/robot mentality). Common sense is the new way forward and you can’t speak the language- your nickel is up Troll – find a new home!

          • Douglas Sherrow, LTG

            I do not remember saying I supported anyone which leads me to the question: Do you hear voices?

          • big KAhuna

            You Dems are so predictable- no susstance ( mindless Robots controlled by your party) – no game! Move on Troll your a hopeless waste of time!

          • Ted Crawford

            If you bothered to read the Social Security Act of 1935 it states that they do not have to payout benefits and are not entitled to a thing at the governments digression but you pay in and they gave you a little interest. Look it up and read before you make comments on subjects you know nothing about. It never ceases to amaze me how many people do no fact checking yet know and believe what they are told. It’s another tax and the US Government draws on it to pay for everything but what they said it was for. Of course they have paid out some benefits to keep people in believing in it. Read the Entire act it tells you what they’re doing. You should have made other plans for retirement since SS pays you enough to barley get by In a 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled there was no contractual obligation for the government to pay out Social Security benefits. Beneficiaries could be denied benefits for any reason if Congress passed a law making it so, as long as the change wasn’t arbitrary. The court said Congress had the power to modify the rules, which it has done several times — such as gradually raising the full retirement age over time.

      • twostickmack

        jimmy carter was the one who raided social security.hes a democrat.he said it was to promote school busing.then bill clinton raided it.another democrat.

        • big KAhuna

          The Dems wrote the books on corruption— never vote democrat they are the evil within! Look at their platform- disastrous for our country / Constitution/ Values!

      • Stephen Serafin

        You imply that it’s the Fault of Trump where as Congress on both sides have been tinkering and stealing from the funds for decades. Get your head outa your A$$.

      • jumper

        I got almost $100 a month more on my pension check with Trump and unlike you I paid into SS for nearly 45 years so it’s my money SLICK.

      • VeryWhiteConservative

        You’re brain dead

  • flashy0ne

    PLEASE, STOP BOTHERING ME WITH THE FACTS !! My mind (ha ha) is already made up :^)

  • W. Coyote

    All of Trump’s problems are self imposed, Newt. There is no deep state. There is no “fake news” conspiracy”. Democrats are not “only concerned about impeachment”. No one is putting words into Trump’s mouth. He is doing all the damage to himself.

    • big KAhuna

      Wrong – 95% of what Trump says is proven factual-unlike the fake news and especially CNN with over 80% proven to be false statements ( brainwashing the mindless Robots) regarding Trump.
      The Deep State is going down, so is Mueller and his Witch Hunt – the hounds from hell are about to expose his collusion/Corruption. The ratings of the fake news channels are down big time. Most people are tired of the lies and attempts to take down a legally elected President- unheard of ( Treason/ Sedition). It’s time for military tribunal, Marshal law, sanctuary officials indicted by a US Marshal for obstructing justice,Thousands of corrupt swamp dwellers and setting judges to appear before a military Tribunal for Treason/ Sedition/ Coup attempts/ Corruption to overthrow etc etc. Removal of sitting judges legislating from their bench, shutting down corrupt and fake news. No president has dome more than Trump in their entire presidency. An excellent problem solver and negotiator and not part of the DC corruption of politics- he does not take his salary- he donates it( can’t be bought). Mueller and his team are corrupted and no matter what they try the public will not stand for it! Lincoln had to do the same thing during his presidency because the Dems where trying to start a civil war and divide our country. It’s Time!

      • W. Coyote

        big KAhuna- Good morning and thank you for your reply. “95% of what Trump says is proven factual”? Really? Could you please give me two or three specific examples for your claim? “CNN with over 80% proven to be false statements”? Really? Could you please provide me with some specific proven examples?

        • big KAhuna

          W. Coyote- I won’t do your homework for you. Bottom line it comes down to who you believe and the credibility of the political platform you support!
          CNN / MSM / and NBC are few of the Democratic networks supported and funded by Socialist Billionare George Sorros- ( One of the most hated fugitive of justices in the world- an understudy to Hitler-and well known for his involvements in overthrowing governments/economies) His goal is to set up a dictatorship run by a one world order – which spells disaster for the US and our freedoms/Best Constitution ever written – his number one project is to destroy us from within. He was the main money figure behind OBama and Clinton- two of the most corrupt and lieing political officials in our history.
          Most Americans do not trust any news network other than FOX. They discuss both sides and clearly explain their basis of the info they report. No one else can hold a candle. They are number 1 for a reason. The Democratic platform / changes within has let us all down— it’s time that people really start to realize the Dems do not serve everyday Americans; nor are they our friends who care for us! They will lie, cheat, steal, take bribes, allow our enemies to get stronger as we get weaker BY THEIR HAND, and they will destroy people or have those they consider threats to their warped version of the ‘greater good’ put ‘away’, one way or another (Vince Foster, Ron Brown and many others)! They consider God and our Constitution as obstacles to their twisted agenda as both the Diety and the Document both hold them to account for their actions. Republicans are not perfect but with our assistance we can move them to where they are serving U.S. and a greater future, one with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness as the main points of focus! Now, if we can only get the numbers required to push back all the Illegal and terrorist voters which they are trying to add to their ill-gotten voter contingent.

          The democratic platform has done way to much dammage to our country and those within to ever trust that platform again. The icing on the cake was their selection of a devout Muslim ( OBummer) to serve as our POTUS ( Who swore to be a Christian and US born citizen- nonsense). And they wanted to put the most corrupt and lieing candidate To ever run – Hildabeast in charge. Their is no end to their corruption and destruction to our values/constitution/Allies. They promote: gay rights, abortion ( responsible for 100 million deaths of fetuses), athiesm ( taking God out of America),illegal immigration, Muslim immigration (people who will try to destroy our way of life- sharia law), socialism ( sponsor is Sorros), communism, ignoring our constitution ( all swore to support it before taking public office), world order/takeover, corruption, and cheating at the polls ( over 5 mil illegal votes recorded in 2016- making Trump the Popular vote as well) to get their ways— they are the “SAiTAN” within America and have lost their way. No wonder a record amount of democrats are abandoning this platform by the thousands after showing its ugly head.

          • W. Coyote

            big Kahuna- Good morning and thank you for providing more of your opinions. First of all, I would never ask you to do my homework. I was asking you to do your own homework. You are the one who made the claim- “95% of what Trump says is proven factual”- not me. I read your comment carefully, but I found no concrete evidence to support your claim.
            Second you state “George Soros……-an understudy to Hitler…” Really? Soros was 9 when WWII started and 14 when it ended. He escaped the Holocaust. Why on earth would Hitler chose a Jewish child from Budapest to be his understudy?

          • VeryWhiteConservative

            You are ignorant and choose to remain so

          • W. Coyote

            Again, I will issue the same challenge. if you can disprove my statement with concrete facts, I will retract it and apologize.

    • Nitsuga360

      And you believed Obama? Ignorance is a bliss…

      • W. Coyote

        Nitsuga360- Good morning and thank you for your reply. “..you believed Obama?” I have no idea how you made that assumption. For the record, I did not agree with everything he said or did.
        However, Trump is president, not Obama. Trump is the one who claimed there were “good people” among Neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Trump is the one who has made false claims about the economy. Trump is the one who separated parents and children. I could go on for a long time, but I think you understand my point.

        • VeryWhiteConservative

          You’re either low IQ or just not paying attention.

          • W. Coyote

            VeryWhiteConservative- Good morning and thank you for your reply. I don’t claim to be a political junkie, but I’m paying pretty close attention. Unlike Trump, I have never claimed to be a genius. Of course, if you have to tell people that you are a genius, that is conclusive proof that you are not.
            If you can disprove anything I stated in my comment above, I will retract it and issue you an apology.

  • Douglas Sherrow, LTG

    I do not understand, if our economy is booming why can we not afford Social Security and Medicare? Oh I forgot, we gave the rich donors a present, thus the regular humans , especially the disabled and poor should be screwed.

    • cjjf

      These programs have been an issue for decades now. What exactly did Obama do to help them? They are in teouble, congress needs to address it, neither party is attempting to fix them, but they are not dissappearing any more under Trump than they were under Obama. In fact, republicans have at least attempted to raise the income cap for ss taxes so more could be collected from the wealthy. Democrats have done nothing but use the issues as talking points for getting elected.

    • metheoldsarge

      Don’t forget that the illegal aliens are getting welfare food stamps and health care. The money has to come from somewhere.

  • dlmstl

    Stay strong, remain resolute and do not waste time arguing with idiots. End stage TDS is rapidly approaching. Ignore being baited into having what you might think is going to be a rational discussion. Look no further than the ongoing delusional rants from San Fran Nan and “I am Spartacus’ Coricus Booker. I am sure 95% of Bookers base are wondering. ‘What’s a Spartacus’?

  • Ah nutz

    Trump has put a big pinch on corrupt money people in government – and some big $ guys that are used to getting big gov. favors…makes ’em nutz.

    • VeryWhiteConservative

      You just posted THE bottom line .. no pun intended

  • jim jones

    Main reason I voted for Trump was to have ALL illegal wet backs removed from American soil, NOT A DAMNED THING IS HAPPENING!!!!!

  • Carl

    The liberal Jewish Democrat controlled DISHONEST media is only concerned with taking Trump down and undoing the results of a DEMOCRATIC election….unfortunately many ‘establishment Republicans (McCain, Graham, Bushes etc…) are willing accomplices….Vote out all DemoRats and establishment Republicans who put ILLEGALS ahead of TAXPAYING Americans….
