Newt Gingrich says he Opposes Child Labor Laws

I continue to write about how the GOP (that’d be the Republican Party) has been hijacked by radicals, most notably and recently the “TEA Party” movement, which I call “TEApublicans.”

Here, we have not mere prima facie evidence, but irrefutable proof positive – Newt Gingrich in his own words – say,

“You’re going to see from me extraordinarily radical proposals to fundamentally change the culture of poverty in America.”

What many – if not most – do not know, is that Newt Gingrich has never been considered “conservative” by conservatives.

In fact, National Public Radio news reported five little known facts about Mr. Gingrich. Here’s #5: He is not considered a conservative — by all conservatives. Gingrich has never been a conservative,” according to an appraisal in May 2011 by The American Conservative magazine. “Gingrich has rarely, if ever, been for smaller government. He simply believes Republicans can preside over big government more effectively.” Earlier this year he called for dismantling the Environmental Protection Agency and replacing it with another governmental bureau, the Environmental Solutions Agency. However, Craig Shirley, a conservative consultant and author of the forthcoming biography, Citizen Newt: The Rise, Fall, and Future of Speaker Gingrich, points out that Gingrich’s lifetime rating by the American Conservative Union is 90 out of a possible 100. “On all the gut check issues of the last 30 years from abortion to championing the individual over the state,” Shirley says, Gingrich “has almost always been on the side of conservatism.” In the annals of American conservatism, Shirley predicts, “Gingrich will rank high.

Even Gene Healy, Columnist for the Washington Examiner newspaper, in his November 14, 2011 OpEd entitled “Gingrich is no conservative,” wrote, “In 2003, Gingrich stumped hard for President George W. Bush’s prescription drug bill, which has added about $17 trillion to Medicare’s unfunded liabilities. “Every conservative member of Congress should vote for this Medicare bill,” Newt urged.”

But don’t take my word for it: Here’s the story, and below is the video.
