Gingrich Responds To Pelosi Claim That CIA Lied To Her

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich called Nancy Pelosi's claim that the CIA lied to her and mislead the Congress of the United States the most despicable, dishonest and vicious political effort I've seen in my lifetime. She is a trivial politician, viciously using partisanship for the narrowist of purposes, and she dishonors the Congress by her behavior.

Gingrich added, Speaker Pelosi's the big loser, because she either comes across as incompetent, or dishonest. Those are the only two defenses The fact is she either didn't do her job, or she did do her job and she's now afraid to tell the truth. This is really, really dangerous, and it is going to get a lot of people killed, if we don’t call a halt to it.

Here are Newt's comments on SanFran Nan's latest convoluted version of the truth.

Nancy Pelosi's face looked particularly frozen yesterday as she accused the CIA of lying to her and misleading the U.S. Congress and of course added that Bush was misleading the Congress. Blink, Blink, Blink, go Nancy's eyes as she tries to dance around her knowledge and involvement in signing off on the enhanced interrogation techniques approved by members of the House Intelligence committee of which she was the ranking Democrat. Here is Nancy version 5.0 for your viewing pleasure. The segment of Nancy's taking heat from the D.C. Press Corps begins with ABC News Jonathan Karl asking You're accusing the CIA of lying to you?

Dana Milbank dishes about the 'Presser' that rapidly devolved into a fiasco for Madame Speaker.

NBC's Mike Viqueira was the first questioner. He asked if she had been "complicit" in the use of techniques such as waterboarding because her aide had been told that such techniques were in use.

"My statement is clear, and let me read it again. Let me read it again," she said. She looked for her statement. "I'm sorry, I have to find the page," she said. She read a few lines, then paused. "I'm sorry, I had the pages out of order." By now she had begun to employ her hands in the conversation, raising an index finger, circling her hands and finally moving both hands as if conducting an orchestra.

ABC's Jonathan Karl wanted to make sure he'd heard right. "You're accusing the CIA of lying to you?"

"Yes, misleading the Congress of the United States," Pelosi repeated. As she answered, she held a fist up, waved her index finger, formed her hand into an O, pushed her hair back, then resumed leading the orchestra. She appeared to have developed a case of dry mouth and was swallowing hard.

Now questions were being shouted from all around the room; Pelosi chose one from the back. Did she wish she had done more to object? "No, no, no, no, no, no," Pelosi said. "As I say in my statement," she repeated, looking down at her papers again.

You get the idea.

Miss California, Carrie Prejean: I Was Punished For Excercising My Free Speech

Good on you Carrie Prejean! Brains, Beauty and Bravery beat out the PC infused simplemindedness of sheeple everytime!

Miss California gets to keep her crown despite the hailstorm of invective hurled at her from the 21st Century Leftist Nazis!

The Donald was not fooled by the rhetoric or cowed by the agitation of PC simpletons like Perez Hilton. Hey Perez, if you don't play in the game, you can't judge the competition!

The Donald said, She gave an honorable answer. She gave an answer from her heart.

Glenn Beck Hits ACORN Spokesman On Massive Voter Fraud---Then Tosses Him Out Of Studio For Claiming Beck's Afraid Of Black People

Glenn Beck hits the ACORN guy with cold hard facts about ACORN managers and employees being involved in voter fraud cases in 14 states! The ACORN guy won't address the issue, and tries the well-worn 60's radical's tactic of talking at the same time as Beck to avoid having to answer a series of straight-forward questions. At one point Beck asks the guy if he can think of one Republican that the group has ever endorsed. The guy couldn't name one! Not one! Finally the guy tries to pull out the old race card and Beck throws him out of the studio. Good family viewing.

President Obama has a long association with ACORN and provided the group with easier access to Federal money under the CDBG (Community Development Block Grants) program wrapped up like a pig in a blanket in the $825 Billion boondogle known as the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009". Under set-asides like CDBG money is available to "community action" groups like ACORN. Another Obama Administration gift to groups like ACORN are Federal funding allocations like the Neighborhood Stabilization Program which enables the group to compete for Federal money alonside state and local governments. Under programs like this, nefarious groups like ACORN can feed from the public trough thanks to the generosity of their Democrat benefactors.

The American Spectator quotes then-candidate Obama telling a group of community organizers in December 2007, Before I even get inaugurated, during the transition, we're going to be calling all of you in to help us shape the agenda. We're going to be having meetings all across the country with community organizations so that you have input into the agenda for the next presidency of the United States of America.
And so he has.

You want cottage fries to go with that order Mr. President? Just a couple of working stiffs, that's our Prez and V.P. Joe Biden. The One dropped by an Arlington, Virginia burger joint with the Veep in tow to sample some of the local cuisine.

No word on whether the Vice President took the subway to get to the diner. Mr. Vice-President, to get there off the D.C. Metro, take the Orange Line to Courthouse. Here's a schedule.

Says ieatdc of this ground-breaking event; chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp:News! Ray's Hell-Burger--Still Delicious.

For those leary of taking public transit during Swine Flu Panic Week, the Veep has some sage advice.

Michael Savage On British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith: When has this witch listened to my program in England?

Britain's Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith lumps radio talk show host Michael Savage in with murderers, Neo-Nazis, Islamic terrorists and skinheads because she doesn't like his opinionated conservative commentary. Apparently, being a conservative in today's England under the Labour government is a thoughtcrime, straight out of the pages of newspeak as chronicled in chilling detail in George Orwell's 1984 .
