.Even though there was no evidence of it, the elite
media announced that the presidential campaign
of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich
was picking up steam and gave his ambitions a
critical boost. This was no surprise to those who know
Gingrich has longstanding ties to powerful circles outside
the realm of the grassroots voters.
In 1968, when conservatives were backing Richard
Nixon or then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan for the
GOP presidential nomination, Gingrich was a Southern
campaign coordinator for liberal internationalist Gov.
Nelson Rockefeller of New York.
Although Gingrich now touts himself as a conservative,
he remains a fervent New World Order globalist and
a longtime advocate of U.S. military adventurism abroad
and destructive so-called free trade policies. In fact, it
was Gingrich who helped railroad the discredited North
American Free Trade Agreement through Congress.
A member of the Rockefeller-financed Council on
Foreign Relations, the New York affiliate of the Royal
Institute of International Affairs, the policy apparatus of
the Rothschild banking empire, Gingrich is particularly
close to hard-line pro-Israeli forces on American soil.
One of his chief foreign policy advisors is Ilan Berman,
editor of the journal of the Jewish Institute for National
Security Affairs (JINSA), the U.S.-based operation
said by Prof. Edward Hermann of the University of Pennsylvania
to be a “virtual agency of the Israeli government.”
Best known for its front-line role through its assets in
the George W. Bush administration in misdirecting the
United States into the debacle in Iraq and now continuing
to clamor for war against Iran, JINSA has had several
of its key figures — including JINSA’s founder,
Stephen Bryen, and his close associates Richard Perle
and Paul Wolfowitz — investigated by the FBI on suspicion
of conducting espionage for Israel.
Gingrich — who has overseen a network of political
enterprises that have brought an estimated $100 million
into his coffers since he left Congress — has been favored
by one donor in particular: Las Vegas gambling tycoon
Sheldon Adelson, a devoted supporter of Israel, who
once described himself as “the richest Jew in the world.”
This modern incarnation of crime boss Meyer Lansky
bankrolled Gingrich to the tune of at least $6 million.
While in Congress, Gingrich benefited from the activities
of his (second) wife, Marianne, then on the payroll
of the Israel Export Development Company
(IEDCO), promoting the importation of Israeli products
into the United States — even as Gingrich used his influence
in Congress to advance U.S.-Israeli trade.
IEDCO was the brainchild of Larry Silverstein, the
billionaire owner of the World Trade Center towers at the
time of the 9-11 tragedy, best known for urging, “pull
it”—in reference to the trade center’s Building 7, which
was deliberately imploded—as 9-11 researchers have
Silverstein even admitted to The Wall Street Journal that Gingrich was one of a number in Congress who lobbied
to support Silverstein’s ventures. This happened at
a time when Gingrich’s wife was on Silverstein’s payroll.
Mrs. Gingrich’s IDECO deal was cut in 1994 after she
and Newt traveled to Israel at the expense of the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee, a lobby for Israel.
Although she took home a monthly salary of $2,500,
plus “commissions,” Mrs. Gingrich refused to disclose
the size of those commissions. The sums she received
are of the level seen in many bribery scandals.
On Jan. 25, 1985, a front-page story in The Spotlight unmasked Gingrich — then a little-known junior House
member and the leader of a clique of Republicans, the
Conservative Opportunity Society (COS) — as the driving
force behind a scheme to scrap the GOP’s historic
nationalist stance on foreign policy.
The Spotlight revealed that Gingrich and several other COS members — including then-Rep. Vin Weber (R-Minn.) —
had attended a secret meeting with Donald
Graham, publisher of The Washington Post, at which
Gingrich and the COS agreed to use their influence to
push the GOP into the internationalist camp. In return,
the Post’s power-wielders promised to give Gingrich and
his collaborators wide and favorable publicity. Until then,
the media had relegated Gingrich and company to backbench
status, painted as extremists.
Gingrich told the Post the COS would — and they
did — call for sanctions against white-ruled South Africa,
a reversal of the traditional conservative stand, a move
that helped bring down that government and which resulted
in South Africa turning its nuclear arsenal over to
Israel — a little-known secret then and now.
Soon — as promised — the Post published a laudatory
profile of Gingrich, one of many future puff pieces.
Then, Gingrich’s colleague, Weber, authored a Post column openly calling for the GOP to become “America’s
new internationalist party.”
The Spotlight was shouted down by conservatives
hoodwinked by the big media into following Gingrich’s
brand of “leadership.” Ultimately, however, the secret
Post-Gingrich meeting was confirmed by the Post — but
only after Gingrich had reached a position of influence. The Spotlight’s “conspiracy theory” — as some called it —
proved to be a conspiracy fact.
On Sept. 3, 1995 the Post pointed out that “for the
ultra-right, Gingrich is just a tool of the world government
plot.” The Post said “anyone who glances at The
Spotlight . . . knows . . . Gingrich is hardly the leader of
their movement; in their eyes, he is [subverting] it.”
According to the Post: “Those with a paranoid bent
are convinced that the Georgian is in cahoots with President
Clinton, the Rockefellers, the Freemasons, the
Council on Foreign Relations and the entire eastern establishment
to abrogate the Constitution and forge a New
World Order under the thumb of Jewish central bankers
and the UN.”
More than a decade later, that sarcastic assessment of
Gingrich stands perhaps more true than ever.
