That newspaper is as legendary a part of the right wing firmament in NH as William Buckley was in the media. It's enormously influential there.

Now, whether the endorsement is enough to help this week's "anybody but the flip flopping Mormon" candidate is another question, since the candidate in question, Gingrich, is so flawed.

But hey, he's smarter than Bachmann, Perry and Cain combined, so what's to complain about?

CFR globalist Newt Gingrich is the ideal candidate for the ruling elite. He has served the elite faithfully and helped it trade away our national sovereignty. He worked with Bill Clinton to foist NAFTA on the American people and move millions of jobs into the China slave labor system of totalitarian globalism

It's only a matter of time before a candidate goes in full attack mode with the philandering of Gingrich.

Cain used to work for the Fed. Crazy Eyes Bachmann used to work for the IRS. Lots of Republicans wanted free trade. Romney started Bain and Co.

I guess that leaves you Ron Paul, he of the anti Semitic and anti gay newsletters that he edited but didn't "know about."

Oh wait, you like anti Semitism and homophobia. Those are selling points on the right. My bad.

And Desperate to derail Ron Paul’s momentum in New Hampshire, the key early primary state in which polls show Paul has a very real chance of winning, the establishment has thrown its weight behind Newt Gingrich, the ultimate RINO globalist who in reality is about as conservative as Mao Tse-tung

if you think that doesn’t sound bad enough, just wait until you read what Gingrich had to say about mandatory health insurance.

“Personal responsibility extends to the purchase of health insurance. Citizens should not be able to cheat their neighbors by not buying insurance, particularly when they can afford it, and expect others to pay for their care when they need it,” he wrote in a 2007 OpEd for the Des Moines Register

Contra militants based in Honduras waged a guerilla war to topple the government of Nicaragua.[16][17] The Contras' form of warfare was "one of consistent and bloody abuse of human rights, of murder, torture, mutilation, rape, arson, destruction and kidnapping."[18][19] The "Contras systematically engage in violent abuses... so prevalent that these may be said to be their principal means of waging war."[20] A Human Rights Watch report found that the Contras were guilty of targeting health care clinics and health care workers for assassination; kidnapping civilians; torturing and executing civilians, including children, who were captured in combat; raping women; indiscriminately attacking civilians and civilian homes; seizing civilian property; and burning civilian houses in captured towns.[21]

Direct funding of the Contras insurgency had been made illegal through the Boland Amendment,[7] the name given to three U.S. legislative amendments between 1982 and 1984 aimed at limiting US government assistance to the Contras militants. In violation of the Boland Amendment, senior officials of the Reagan administration continued to secretly arm and train the Contras and provide arms to Iran, an operation they called "the Enterprise".[22]
When you engage in such actions as the Iran contra, you need help from the other branches and clean up... Also it helps add a separate layer of protection and an expediter is necessary....

You would need an ambitious politician whose morals are for sale and wants power....willing to take this risk for approval of the bosses

Gingrich fits this bill

Gingrich had knowledge and involvement of/in the Iran Contra scandal...

Let me see if I can help get it going!

On January 21, 1997, the House of Representatives voted to discipline Gingrich for ethical wrongdoing. He was accused of using tax-deductible charitable donations to fund a non-charitable college course that he taught, and of giving false information about this to the House Ethics Committee.

In a 395-28 vote, the House ordered Gingrich to pay an unprecedented $300,000 penalty as part of a settlement to avoid a full hearing.

The House banking and Congressional Post Office scandals: Gingrich was among 450 members of the House who had engaged in check kiting; he had overdrafts on twenty-two checks, including a $9,463 check to the Internal Revenue Service in 1990.

The Emerald Casino
In 1991, Joseph McQuid took a job as lllinois Gaming Board's law enforcement director. In 1995 he was made a Vice President of the Emerald Casino.
Emerald Casino Says No to Questionable Investors
FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2006
The bankrupt Emerald Casino announced Thursday it has rejected two proposed shareholders who have alleged mob ties, a main owner wants to withdraw and a member of its board of directors has resigned.
The move is intended to rid the casino of any shareholders who have been singled out by the Illinois Gaming Board and Attorney General Lisa Madigan as questionable and is part of the casino's fight to stop the state from revoking its gambling license, Emerald attorneys said.
The casino's board rejected the Sherri Bbscarino Trust and Joseph Salamone as proposed investors after evidence during an ongoing license revocation hearing tied the two to organized crime earlier this month, Emerald attorneys said.
"In light of the allegations made by the attorney general and in light of the documentation that has been produced that Emerald, did not know about and could not have known about when they were put down as proposed shareholders, Emerald has made a decision to specifically reject them as qualified proposed shareholders," Emerald attorney Michael Krzak said.
Also, one of Emerald's main owners, Kevin Flynn, wants to withdraw as a proposed shareholder and board of directors member Joseph McQuaid has resigned. They gave no reason for their actions and Krzak said he did not know why the two want to leave from Emerald.
The withdrawal of Boscarino, Salamone and Flynn and McQuaid's resignations have no impact on the state's attempt to revoke Emerald's license, Madigan spokeswoman Melissa Merz said.
"It has everything to do with the character of the people who allowed them to purchase stock in the first place," Merz said.
The Gaming Board, which has been trying to revoke Emerald's license since 2001, contends Flynn and his father, Donald — who remains an investor — lied to regulators and that SaJamone and the Boscarino Trust had ties to organized crime.
The board alleges that Nick Boscarino has ties to organized crime and held a hidden interest in Emerald through a trust named after his wife, Sherri. Evidence at the revocation hearing showed that Boscarino transferred $1.5 million—the cost of a 1 percent share in Emerald — to his mother, who was trustee for the trust at about the same time the investment was made.
