Newt's legendary flip flop on Romney

Newt Gingrich claims he wanted to run a positive campaign, yet 15 minutes after Romney runs one 'attack' ad Gingrich releases a 30 minute documentary slamming Romney as a 'vulture' capitalist. Not exactly the rhetoric you want from a so-called 'Ronald Reagan' conservative running for President. It's an interesting attack considering just a few weeks ago Newt the 'angry attack muffin' was actually saying the exact opposite about Romney's time at Bain.

Pat and Stu discuss this John Kerry-esque flip flop in the clip above.

So much for running a positive campaign… Newt Gingrich, in a not so surprising move, has made a legendary flip flop in his opinion on Mitt Romney’s time at Bain Capital. Why was Mr. “I’m a Reagan Conservative” attacking Mitt Romney for being a ‘vulture’ capitalist? Supposedly Mitt “got a little under his skin.” It's an interesting attack considering just a few weeks ago Newt the 'angry attack muffin' was actually saying the exact opposite about Romney's time at Bain.

It would be one thing if Newt’s view on the type of business Mitt Romney was running at Bain had been shifting over a long period of time, …and wasn’t a catch-phrase we typically hear from politicians, like Socialist Barry Sanders or the “99%.” Not only is he either lying about his views on capitalism in this statement or previous ones, but he doesn’t really have an inch to talk about anyone making too much money.

Pat and Stu point out:

Pat: He made, okay, 1.6 million from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, one of the two, whatever it was. He makes $60,000 per speech.

STU: Again I have absolutely no problem with him making 60,000 per speech.

PAT: Oh, and the million dollar account he had at Tiffany's in New York.

STU: Right. And by the way, all charges, all charges, by the way, not the Fannie and Freddie one because that's from the government, but the other two we've defended him on. And we're not big fans of Newt Gingrich as you've noticed that, but we defended him on the Tiffany's thing.

Gingrich seems to be fishing for ways to bring down Mitt Romney, and all of the obviously places where a strong conservative would go to do this, like global warming and health care, happen to be areas where he is either just as bad or possibly worse. When you’re painting yourself as the “Reagan conservative” during primary season, and have a history like Newt’s, your time might be better spent focusing on your strengths, not pointing out the weaknesses of your opponents …in areas that you happen to be weak in as well.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
