NEWT LOVES THE UN’S KYOTO TREATY GLOBAL APPROACH “Mobilizing other countries to join us will not be as easy as it may appear. Many of the countries that signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol are lagging behind on their commitments.” Newt Gingrich, “A Contract With The Earth,” Page 168
STOP CONSERVATIVE OPPOSITION TO THE ESA “The act [Endangered Species Act] has been, by any measure, a very successful guardian of wildlife and habitat and any attempt to weaken it should be resisted.” Newt Gingrich, “A Contract With The Earth,” Page 170
Like you needed more reasons to scratch Newt of your list as a potential GOP nominee. The Conservative group, Gun Owners of America, reminds us that back in the day, when Newt was in Congress, he was no friend to gun owners.
Newt is for amnesty. In CNN June debate he , not unlike Perry, used the word heartless against those that would like to deport illegal aliens as REQUIRED BY LAW!
Newt said he regretted cozying up to Nancy Pelosi to push a global warming agenda. I wonder if he regrets writing that letter in the Wall St. Journal pushing the McCain/Kennedy amnesty....hmmmmm???? WSJ, February 6, 2004 - Welcome to America
Gingrich Backs Obamacare’s Individual Mandate Requiring Health Insurance. Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gingrich told host David Gregory that he continues to advocate for a plan he first called for in the early 1990s as a Congressman, which requires every uninsured citizen to purchase or acquire health insurance.

Here Cruz teams up with Paul Ryan to push the TPA fasttrack/TPP!
CESAR CONDA - Pro Amnesty, anti enforcement open border HACK. Pal of all things Grover Norquist. The guy who pulls Marco Rubio's strings (Rubio's chief of staff). Mentor to Paul Ryan. This is the guy who ushered Ryan into DC politics.......Professionally, Ryan is a creature of Washington insider politics. He got his first taste of congressional politics as a college intern for U.S. Sen. Bob Kasten of Wisconsin. The work was not glamorous, often sorting and delivering mail.
“He was as earnest, polite and enthusiastic,” said his friend and mentor, Cesar Conda, who eventually provided a crucial link between Romney and Ryan. Conda brought Ryan back as an intern the next year.
