Newt had the right idea all along. Unfortunately he is gone from the race now and what ever else Mitt Romney will or will not do, one of Newt’s better ideas will not be adopted.
What was that idea and what was he so right about?
He was right about the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the need to simply abolish it.
The 9th Circuit has not come out with a new outrageous decision. They do that all the time. No, the 9th Circuit is doing something even more outrageous.
In the middle of the Great Obama Depression, the 9th Circuit is blowing a million dollars so they can have a really nice getaway at a resort in Hawaii.
Shades of the GSA?
The event is the 9th Circuit’s annual judicial conference. In fairness to the 9th Circuit, that Circuit does include Hawaii and the outlying Pacific territories. And every Circuit has a judicial conference. These are legitimate events where judges and lawyers get their continuing education requirements and it is a good chance for the judges to hear from the lawyers on issues that affect the administration of justice.
Most of the other circuits realize there is a Depression going on and have cut back their Judicial Conferences. Not the 9th Circuit.
They are going to a luxury resort in Hawaii.
Travel alone for this conference is going to cost almost $700,000. Then you have the additional expenses that go along with that, including lodging and an almost $400 a day per diem. In addition, Breitbart.com estimates that there will be another $700,000 spent in salaries for the 267 Judges during their time in Hawaii.
Newt Gingrich called for the abolition of the 9th Circuit during his campaign. The abolition of the 9th Circuit would have put all of those judges out of work. The 9th Circuit is the most liberal and most reversed of the Federal Appellate Circuits.
And now, they can have the reputation for the hardest partying (on the taxpayer dime) Federal Circuit.
It really is past time for the 9th Circuit to be done away with. As real Americans lose their homes, have to make all kinds of sacrifices and do not get to go on family vacations, why should these government employees get this kind of ritzy all expense paid vacation?
It is utterly insane.
Of course, the 9th Circuit, being the most liberal, fits right in with the Obama model of let’s see how much money we can waste.
If Newt Gingrich had been elected President, there is a decent chance the 9th Circuit might have been abolished. Unfortunately, even if Mitt Romney is elected, he will never do anything that bold, no matter how bad the 9th Circuit is.
Thanks for the information.
"We The People" Must Do the Heavy Lifting From Now On!
Where was the Tea Party wen Newt needed us.... Spit in 3 ways.. That was a part of the plan. Glenn Beck Lied about him about the Tea Party believe him.. Of course he is a Mormon and he was for Romney all along.. I say.. Stupid Sheeple following Glenn!
Sarah Palin had it right ! She always has!!
you have no proof that Beck "was for Romney all along" and in fact, he was a huge Bachmann supporter, then Santorum. He complains about Romney all the time and never promoted him and still doesn't. Wow, if that's "being for someone" then I guess the sky is green.
I learned a great deal from Glenn about Obama's background. But...in the end, we have to rely on our own research, don't we.
THAT;S the one thing and only thing I had against Glenn Beck.....was his "downing" of Newt. Actually, I was shocked by his reaction to Newt. It's something I would expect from a lib. To be perfectly honest, it was "hurtful" to me. Now the memory of what he said lingers.
Yeah, I quit listening to Beck when he moved to the left.
Do not turn your back on Glenn Beck ! You will be ill informed even more !
Exactly. NO ONE person has ALL the truth. We must research to learn to confirm or deny.
No one is perfect and Yes, each person will have their own personal "leanings" within any report or TV show.
I am thankful for Glen because he did all of the heavy lifting about Obama's background.
Well, we can make it up to him....by making sure that we get Palin, Bachman, or Newt in.
We WILL HAVE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY.
I just have a very sneaking suspicion, we will be hearing a great deal more from all three of the above!!
She is one smart woman!
I have nothing against Mormon they are very nice people... But I have something against LAIRS!!!!!!! And Glenn Beck id a liar!!
Yes.. to split the vote. he did it...... yes I have....!!! He is a TEMPLE MORMON and Romney is too.!!!!!!! He would NEVER vote for anyone else...
And Mormon's on other sites listen to him.. I have personal knowledge of that!!!
He called Newt a Progresseve... NEVER ROMNEY.. never said a BAD Word about Romney.. NEVER.. it was a joke that huge supported Rick and Michele.. Only to split the vote. He told Rick to not say anything against Romney.. which Rich was going to.......I heard him myself!! And Michele and Rick didn't pick on Romney in the Debates.. because of Glenn..
Sorry we are not stupid!!!
