Newt Agnostic about Global Warming….in the weeds again?

I don’t think we know, I think that the evidence is not complete and I think that we’re a long way from being able to translate a computer program into actual science.
-Newt Gingrich on Bill O’ Reilly-

Oh, Come on Newt! I have praised you and your intelligence for years now, saying that you are the smartest of the bunch, yet at unforeseen times you drive your wagon out into the giggle weeds to partake in them.

With all the proof out there now, showing that Global Warming is cyclical, and man made Global Warming is made up only to make money for the liberal machine, out of all of us dupes out here, how can you be dumb enough to fall for this again?

I was beginning to start thinking you were the one, and then you fall down and start your imbibing again with the stuff that you need to stay away from, for crying outside.

The sad part is, you have done this before, and everytime you do it, it makes me wonder if you will be the one for this country, because this global warming idea of yours is something that is not needed in this country. We are already spending too much money on things that are not needed.

Okay, I heard this on the radio yesterday, saying that Newt said he was agnostic about Global Warming. But it was really Bill O’Reilly who used the term “agnostic”, not Newt. The conversation went like this:

BILL O’REILLY, HOST: Now the lead story tonight let’s go down to Charleston, South Carolina where Newt Gingrich is campaigning today after receiving an endorsement from the Manchester Union Leader in New Hampshire yesterday.

So Mr. Speaker I want to do some rapid fire stuff here. You know something I’m interested in all right but that has occurred during your campaign. First of all, Nancy Pelosi, you sitting there talking about global warming on TV. What was that all about?

NEWT GINGRICH (R), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Well, I’ve said it’s one of the dumbest things I’ve done in recent years. It was an effort in my part to say that conservatives are concerned about the environment. We have better solutions. I actively opposed cap and trade. I testified against it the same day Al Gore testified for it.

But the commercial is just a mistake.

O’REILLY: Ok now do you believe in man-made global warming that because the planet is polluted and we spew a lot of stuff into the air that has influenced the way climate comes about? Do you believe that?

GINGRICH: I don’t think we know, I think that the evidence is not complete and I think that we’re a long way from being able to translate a computer program into actual science.

O’REILLY: All right, so you’re an agnostic on the subject. Would that be accurate?

GINGRICH: And it would fair to say that I’m open-minded and certainly not prepared to spend trillions of dollars on the theory.

O’REILLY: Now Nancy Pelosi is obviously the poster woman for the far-left and — and what was the benefit — put the issue aside of global warming, the environment because I think that’s an important issue and I know you’re interested in it and I have been for many years. Put that aside. Did you think that being associated with her in any forum would be damaging to you?

GINGRICH: No. I thought at the time, look I was a private citizen, I wasn’t contemplating public life and I thought how — I just written a book called “Contract with the Earth” with Terry Maple on a conservative approach to the environment on how to use incentives and business and common sense to have a better environment without the EPA. And so I wanted to be in the middle of an argument about the environment to make a case the conservatives can actually have a better ideas about the environment than liberals do.

O’REILLY: Ok. That was a pretty eerie occurrence though I mean, just looking back on it.

GINGRICH: I agree.

O’REILLY: Very frightening.

All right, let’s go to immigration. Border fence, would you put a border fence from Brownsville in San Diego if you were president?



GINGRICH: Absolutely.

O’REILLY: Would you move the National Guard down to the border in certain precincts that are dangerous and would put the U.S. National Guard to back up the border.

GINGRICH: Sure, I would use whatever — look I would use whatever resources we needed to. I’ve said, you know 23,000 Department of Homeland Security employees in the Washington D.C. area. I’d move half of them to Texas, New Mexico and Arizona if we need the manpower.

O’REILLY: Well, that would just frighten the people not to come here because they’ll being the federal employees. I mean, President Bush did not want to —

GINGRICH: I would be willing to use — I would be willing to reinforce, there’s a profound reason to not get the military too close the drug dealing because of its enormous potential for corruption. But I think as reinforcement for local sheriffs, as reinforcement for local law enforcement and for the border patrol you certainly would use whatever level of military you use to make sure we had overwhelming power.

O’REILLY: Ok because President Bush was not — did not want to do that. He did not for whatever reason and he never clearly articulated it.


O’REILLY: He did not want to use the National Guard to get down there and help Arizona in particular which is just awash with the whole of the stuff.

And Arnold Schwarzenegger the Governor of California flat out refused to do it when he could have called out the National Guard. They refused to do it.

Do you understand President Bush and Governor Schwarzenegger’s reluctance?

GINGRICH: No. And I think that’s — they have to explain their reluctance. What I can tell you is we have — we have a crisis in national security. We’ve have it since 1986 when President Reagan wrote that he was signing the Simpson-Mazzoli in his diary in order to get the border controlled. For a quarter of a century we failed. I’ve said it at, you can see it right there one of my top priorities is we would have complete control by January 1, 2014.

I think it’s a national security imperative and I would take whatever resources were needed to get the job done.

O’REILLY: Ok. Now the 11 million — this is an estimate but I think it’s accurate — the 11 million illegal immigrants already here have to be dealt with in some way. My program which I’ve had up on BillO’ for years says you start with registering, you give illegal aliens a time period, maybe a month, maybe two months that they have to register at the post office with their name, their address and their status, all right.

And if they have a Social Security number or something like that they have it. If they don’t register within the time period that the government decides it’s a felony. It’s a felony all right, would you support that?

GINGRICH: Well, look I want to deport the people who don’t register, I don’t want to put —

O’REILLY: No, no but you have to find out where they are and who they are.


O’REILLY: And we don’t know where they are and who they are they are living in the shadows.

GINGRICH: Right and if you’re saying —

O’REILLY: Would you support a registration of illegal aliens.

That is where the transcript ended sadly. But you get the gist of the interview and what Mr. Gingrich said.

What we have with Newt, is he is almost always the smartest guy in the room, and unlike Obama, who only thinks he is the smartest guy in the room, Newt is. He knows all about American history, and what America’s founding documents say. He is a Conservative, and would make a good president. He will say 99 things that are great, then one thing that seems to come out of the back woods somewhere, but I am not sure what president we have ever had who hasn’t said stupid things from time to time. We are all, after all, human. But he would be MUCH better than who we have in the White House now.

May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.

    I saw Newt on Bill O’Reilly’s show that night. If he is agnostic–as O’Reilly put it–on global warming, I can live with that. At least Newt’s not a man-is-causing-global-warming zealot like Al Gore and so many others on the Left. His “agnostic” position means he’ll be less likely to inact rash “solutions” to this problem that only serve to grow government and increase it’s control over our lives. At least, I hope he’ll be less likely. I know Obama won’t be and that’s far more frightening than anything Newt might believe on this issue.
    reply from Robert: Sort of what I was thinking. But then, anything would be better than Obama.
