Newt strikes Iowa gold
By Kevin Fobbs

The political establishment that he once ran, and now is reviled at his ascension to the top of the Republican leader board is now shaking with fear that he is solidifying his front runner status with pure Iowa Gold. That's right, it is the novel idea, that conservative constitutionalists and Tea Party base members embrace the notion of returning federal courts to their constitutional limit of interpreting the constitution and not making new federal law. It has been Newt's long term constitutional clarion call and it is clearly in Newt Gingrich's wheelhouse.

Gingrich has been one of the few lonely constitutional ideologues who actively embraced the notion that federal courts have been ham fisted in how they create new law whenever the notion fancies them. The party leaders and most liberal pundits averted their eyes and the reporting from this topic, because it was deemed too much like touching a stick of dynamite that might explode into political fiasco for them, if Americans ever thought that their U.S. Constitution was slowly dying on the vine.

Now comes citizen Newt, clear of voice, deepened in his determination to tackle an issue that is basically his alone to tout; because unlike his leading rival Romney who can not get his arms around something that he can't take two different positions on; Newt is the real solid constitutional deal.

Iowa is not the only state where this should be stirring some turbulent political waters. Conservatives in states like South Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, and Michigan, as well as other GOP political king making states, should be taking careful notes.

Core values issues like preserving life, a balanced federal budget, appealing the constitutional over reach of Obamacare, and protecting our borders like Arizona and Alabama and several others have accomplished through bold legislative action. These states have dared to protect their constitutional right to not be bankrupted by illegal immigrants using state resources, while federal officials and federal courts uncaringly look the other way.

Well, take the time and read for yourself what the political pundits do not want you to know, and decide whether or not Newt's Item 9 in his 21st Century Contract with America, to bring the courts back under the U.S. Constitution, is not genuine and that it truly represents a contract for America's future. ( )

No, no, for too long, Newt may have been out there all alone on the constitutional branch, but, thanks to the recent Fox News debate, he is back, he at the top, and Newt is ready to make political constitutional hay, for all the works! Guess what, America and our U.S. Constitution will be the take a look!
