In my post a year ago, Terrified Beyond The Capacity For Rational Thought, I wrote:
Make no mistake about it. Like the angry Sumerian god Gozer the Traveler, who made a dramatic comeback after being temporarily forced into inter-dimensional exile by the Proton Pack wielding Ghostbusters, Newtie is back with a vengeance…
All Newtie has to do to terrify us beyond the capacity for rational thought is to come back as himself.
I hate say I told you so, but Newtie’s back as his scarier than Gozer self, with a new book titled: To Save America: Stopping Obama’s Secular-Socialist Machine.
The very fate and character of the nation is at stake. Gingrich warns us that:
“The secular-socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.”
Here’s how his publisher describes the book’s contents:
America on the Brink
The Obama administration is conspiring to transform America. They want to remake our America—of free enterprise, faith, and personal freedom—into their America—of endless bureaucracy, secularism, and state control—despite overwhelming opposition from the American people.How is this possible? How has the Obama team succeeded in adopting widely despised policies like the massive stimulus bill and the healthcare takeover? How could such a radical president and his congressional leaders get elected and then take a center-right country in a socialist direction bitterly opposed by most Americans? Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has the answer: the Left have built a secular-socialist machine out of corruption, lust for power, and sheer ruthlessness, and are using it to steamroll over the will of the people. In this book, Gingrich reveals:
* How the secular-socialist machine gained power through deception and outright lies
* How the machine shuts the American people out of the legislative process
* Why some of our most powerful leaders seek to banish religion from public life
* How the machine uses taxpayer money to pay off its supporters and punish its opponents
* How we can replace, not reform, Obama’s socialist programs
Exposing the mortal threat now facing America, To Save America offers concrete strategies for dismantling the machine and replacing it with policies and institutions that work. But we must act fast, Gingrich warns, or our children will inherit a secular, socialist America transformed beyond recognition.
And who better to save America from the commie fascist Nazi secular socialist Manchurian Kenyan Candidate than the former Rethuglican Speaker of the House? Who cares that he was forced out of office by his own party for personal corruption; for nearly bringing the entire US government to a halt out of pique for not being given a prime seat Air Force One; for cheating on his wife, serving divorce papers on her in the hospital as she was battling cancer while at the same time he was trying to impeach President Bill Clinton for cheating on his wife.
During her confirmation hearings last year, Newt famously called Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor “a racist,” yanking her “wise Latina” comment out of context to prove his point. Now he’s demanding that Obama un-nominate US Solictor General Elena Kagan because she maintained an existing Harvard administrative policy to ban discriminatory civilian and military recruiters from using campus office facilities.
Gingrich still wants to be president some day, so staying in the public eye by writing books and doing interviews is to be expected. Unlike other presidential wannabes like Sarah Palin, he can actually formulate and articulate policy, sucky as it is. But because the inmates have taken over the asylum that is his party these days, he’s forced to try and out-crazy them.
Crazy enough that even Fux News’ Chris Wallace calls his shtick “wildly over the top”:
The irony of course is that to save America, Gingrich will have to destroy it.
This book is a good start.
