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.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
