In an effort to push for a new congressional authorization for the use of military force, a real Tweet from Newt Gingrich’s Twitter account dated Nov. 13th, stated the following:
“Maybe scale of the Paris attack following Russian airline bombing and California terrorist attack will convince our leaders this is real war” Newt Gingrich
Here is the Tweet itself. If given enough attention, I’m sure it will be gone in a short while.
Considering the implications of this Tweet, I decided to ask Newt about his statement.
Newt was forecasting the exact talking points being used right now to push for more war in the Middle East and across the globe.
Neocon warmongers are saying that these three recent events have seriously escalated the “war with ISIS™” to the point where we need to arm the president with a new authorization for the use of military force bill. They want to make war in places like Nigeria, Libya, Sinai, Yemen, Iraq, Syria and anywhere else various populations start to take exception to our American Exceptionalism.
The problem here is that Newt seems to have tipped his hand a little with this Tweet since the San Bernardino shootings didn’t take place until Dec. 2, 2015. And that phony pledge from the Facebook spokesman aside, they still haven’t tied it into ISIS™ (though now they seem to be trying to do just that with the mysterious, kidnapped, brainwashed “friend” of Farooq)
I decided to try to nip Newt’s response in the bud a little. I figure he’s going to try to argue that he was talking about another ISIS™ terrorist attack in California just prior to the Paris attacks. Problem is, none exists.
