A Suicidal Pledge? Gingrich Reaffirms Pledge To Violate Constitution After Promising To Kill Enemies Of Our Nation

After pledging to kill our enemies, Newt Gingrich returned to one of his favorite themes: violating the United States Constitution. In Greenville, South Carolina, Gingrich again said that he would ignore Supreme Court decisions that he disagreed with. We have previously discussed the flaws in Gingrich’s legal and historical views, but my concern is that pledging to violate the Constitution would make Gingrich an enemy of our constitutional system. Does this mean that his first act would be to add his own name to the presidential hit list?


Gingrich told the crowd “The president interprets the Constitution as president. If the court makes a fundamentally wrong decision, president can in fact ignore the courts.”

The question is what threatens our nation the most, destroying a building or a constitutional system? With President Obama continuing the claim of absolute power to kill Americans, the added claim to ignore the check and balance of judicial review would complete our shift toward authoritarian powers.

For Gingrich to pledge to attack the Constitution while pledging to kill enemies of our country seems a textbook case of autophobia. It raises the question of what constitutes an enemy to our system.

A personality disorder is defined as an “enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates markedly from the expectation of the individual’s culture, is pervasive and inflexible (unlikely to change), is stable over time, and leads to distress or impairment in interpersonal relationships.” Legally, a pledge to kill enemies and then declare oneself an enemy to core principle of the country constitutes a serious and a dangerous disorder in a president.

    apparently Marianne is an adulterer as well, maybe even a serial adulterer.

    It didnt stop you from voting for Clinton did it? And it didnt stop people from voting for JFK or FDR.

  2. Bron,

    “So you are right and Gingrich would not be a good choice, he should drop out and see if he can get a cabinet position, maybe secretary of Agriculture or Transportation. I dont think you can screw up to badly in those positions.”

    I think you underestimate the Newtster’s destructive potential, but we do agree on his general inappropriateness for higher office.

    Personally, I dont like Newt. My assumption is that if you cheat on your wife you will certainly screw me as well in any type of association. The fact that he leaves his wives when they are diagnosed with a disease is also troubling. When the shit hits the fan ole Newt is standing strong, in some other woman’s bed. That doesnt portend well for the US if she gets into a serious jam, ole Newt would just be a sunshine patriot and leave for Mexico or maybe New Zealand to see if he could service er be of service.

    So you are right and Gingrich would not be a good choice, he should drop out and see if he can get a cabinet position, maybe secretary of Agriculture or Transportation. I dont think you can screw up to badly in those positions.

    But Marianne is a POS as well for banging a married man with a sick wife, she doesnt have any thing to say of any substance.
