Newt Gingrich: Lockheed Martin Manchurian Candidate

December 6, 2011 — By Dean Henderson

After agonizing months of Republican bread and circus Presidential debates, the Illuminati have spoken. With Occupy chaos engulfing the streets of America and with a dressed down Uncle Herman and a dressed up Donald Trump in tow, the banksters have thrown their weight squarely behind Lockheed Martin Manchurian candidate Newt Gingrich.

Hat tip to conspiracy researcher Texe Marrs, who several months back declared Gingrich the Illuminati candidate.

Marrs wrote, “To prepare Gingrich for his role as Rothschild front man in 2012, Newt recently “converted” to Catholicism. In February, 2010, some 500 Catholic millionaires, initiates of the Opus Dei affiliate Legatus, met in Dana Point, California to honor Gingrich and former President and Jew-Catholic loyalist George W. Bush. Gingrich was lauded by the group for his conversion and even gave his “Christian testimony” regarding his leaving the Southern Baptist denomination to become a convert to “Holy Mother Church.” His new wife—his third—was on hand.” [1]

But before the Lizard Grinch can steal Christmas by resurrecting fear and catharsis as the modus operandi of American politics, he’ll have some explaining to do.

Never mind the sexual escapades or the Tiffany’s credit card or even the hypocrisy of being in the pay of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – those lighting rods of the fact-challenged right, whose woes began only after they were partially privatized to become bad loan repositories for the Eight Families megabanks.

Never mind that the Grinch was forced out of Congress due to ethics violations.

What Gingrich needs to explain to the 99% is his cozy relationship with the neocons and with the world’s largest defense contractor – Lockheed Martin.

As Kurt Nimmo wrote, “In no sense of the word is Newt Gingrich a “conservative” or even a traditional Republican. He was a fellow at the neocon criminal organizations the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution. During the Bush regime he sat on the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board with fellow neocon Richard Perle and representatives of the death merchants Bechtel, Boeing, TRW, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin and Booz Allen Hamilton. Rockefeller minion Henry Kissinger was also a member during the Bush years.

He was also a “distinguished” advisor at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, another neocon think tank that is closely linked with the National Endowment for Democracy, an organization that does today what was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA, as one of its founders, Allen Weinstein, admitted in 2000. In short, NED overthrows governments in disfavor by the elite and organizes color revolutions designed to replace democratic elections.

The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (an Orwellian name if ever there was one) is a virtual rat hole of neocons including former CIA director James Woolsey, the senator from Israel, Joe Lieberman, Gary Bauer, Frank Gaffney, Bill Kristol, Charles Krauthammer, Walid Phares, and a scattering of like-minded Democrats such as the gun-grabber Frank Lautenberg and Chuckie Schumer.

Gingrich is reputed to be a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and to have ties to the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research (founded by the late William J. Casey, Reagan’s CIA director who was largely responsible for creating the Afghan Mujihadeen that would later become the CIA asset al-Qaeda).

Newt has also attended Bohemian Grove where he rubbed elbows with occultists and male prostitutes. Newt has said he is not associated with worshipers of the Canaanite owl of Bohemia but he is a demonstrated liar (his photo appears on the pages of the Annals of the Bohemian Club).” [2]

Gingrich spent two decades as Georgia Congressman in the district adjacent to a hulking Lockheed Martin assembly plant. On August 30, 1994 Lockheed merged with the Marietta, GA-based Martin Marietta to form Lockheed Martin. [3] Two years later Lockheed bought another huge defense contractor – Loral Corporation.

From the beginning Gingrich was a lapdog for Lockheed.

As Tim Murphy wrote in a May 2011 article in Mother Jones, “The relationship began early. As a freshman congressman from suburban Atlanta in 1979, Gingrich drafted a letter to President Jimmy Carter, lobbying for the sale of L-100 Hercules jets to Muammar Qaddafi’s Libya. Although Gingrich now says that Qaddafi has been an enemy of the United States since the early 70s, and supported (for a moment, at least) military intervention in North Africa, the congressman’s focus at the time was pure retail politics. Boeing had been allowed to sell three similar planes to the dictator, he told the president; why shouldn’t Lockheed?

For the most part, though, Gingrich’s hawkish foreign policy positions dovetailed nicely with his interest in filling Lockheed’s coffers. He spent much of the 1980s lobbing rhetorical bombs about the existential threat posed by the Soviet Union and supported President Reagan’s escalations in defense spending even though they led to an ever-increasing deficit.

Speakers traditionally avoid serving on any congressional committees, not only because of the undue influence they’d command, but also because of obvious time constraints. Gingrich made an exception when he acquired the gavel in 1995. One of his first orders of business was to appoint himself to the House intelligence committee. He filled the roster with up-and-coming GOPers who knew better than to cross him, and used his influence to ensure that none of Lockheed’s marquee projects were brought down in the budget-slashing crossfire.

As one Lockheed source told Robert Dreyfuss in 1996, Gingrich’s constant cheerleading actually started to wear on the company as the polarizing politician’s reputation soured: “We wanted to downplay any relationship between the speaker and Lockheed.” As Forbes later reported, having such a high-profile, reliable booster in Congress may have been bad the company’s health; it wasn’t until after Gingrich left the House that the company was able to restructure its operations and shore up its finances.

But it was a mutually beneficial relationship, for the most part. Gingrich made sure that Lockheed was in line for its usual fill of hefty defense contracts, and Lockheed made sure Gingrich always had support for his ventures, political and otherwise. The company donated the maximum $10,000 to Gingrich’s campaign in the lead-up to the 1994 Republican Revolution, and, just for good measure, shelled out another $10,000 in seed money for Gingrich’s weekly lecture series on American history, “Renewing American Civilization,” during which the Speaker dutifully talked up the company’s corporate virtues.

Perhaps the most brazen instance of Gingrich’s Lockheed-lobbying came in 1998. The Pentagon requested $59 million to build a C-130J transport plane. But when it passed through Gingrich’s committee, that figure morphed to $503 million—an 850-percent jump. As an Air Force spokesman put it at the time, “We didn’t request them. They just gave them to us.” But at least the C-130Js work. Gingrich was also a leading proponent of the F-22, the perpetual military fighter jet of the future (think Dipping Dots, if Dipping Dots were prone to mechanical malfunction and cost $320 million per serving.)” [4]

In 2010 Lockheed Martin boasted revenue of $45 billion. With the Bush/Neocon wars in Afghanistan and Iraq winding down, their war profits are threatened. They are counting on the Lizard Grinch to resurrect the American war machine.

Conventional progressive wisdom is to welcome a Gingrich nomination, thinking him easier for Obama to defeat than Mitt Romney. I strongly disagree.

Gingrich is the Illuminati chosen one. He’ll raise big money and he’s a clever politician with a mean streak. The only way the 99% people’s revolution can now be stopped is to drastically shift the conversation from the current discussion of Wall Street fat cats and concentrated economic power back to a fear-based narrative likely focused on Iran.

Gingrich is the only Republican candidate that could pull this off.

Advice to President Obama and the progressive media: It’s time to pivot from the Romney attacks and go after the Illuminati Lockheed Martin Lizard Grinch.
