Newt Gingrich Admits Donald Trump Does Not Yet Have A Plan To Beat ISIS

Source: The Huffington Post


Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich conceded that President-elect Donald Trump does not yet have a plan for defeating the Islamic State militant group.

“I don’t think they have a strategy,” Gingrich told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. “I think that what they know, which is important, is that they are gonna need a strategy.”

Gingrich, an informal adviser to the president-elect, went on to express confidence that Trump’s general-heavy roster of security advisers and cabinet members would develop a strong approach to fighting the terror group.

“They are going to be able to produce a very aggressive strategy. They have a much better grip on reality than the Obama administration did,” he added.

That's no surprise to anyone with a brain and this isn't a surprise either:

Gingrich then suggested the United States should consider suspending civil liberties to combat terrorism as former President Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War.

The bastard doesn't even see the need for a Reichstag fire. These fuckers are dangerous beyond belief.

1. After this and the "drain the swamp" admission

I have a feeling that Gingrich is not going to be an "informal advisor" for much longer.

29. Oh I don't know

Dump will love the suspending civil liberties idea. But then, he probably has plans of his own on that front, unlike his nonexistent plans for ISIS, or anything else.

5. I think it's more guns.

Donalddickarnold's transition is the best.

As soon as the way overbought market corrects he's got nothing going for him. It'll be a downward spiral from an already historically low starting point. His campaign bullshit is about to meet reality.

Might as well sit back and enjoy the shitshow while at the same time hoping he doesn't start WWIII.

Once he pushes the red button, POOF!--no more gun violence in Chicago! No more Chicago (, New York, DC, LA, America....problem solved! Who says he's not a genius??)

8. Glad you mentioned Reichstag fire.

 

I suspect we will have such incidents at regular intervals. We are primed and ready, so they won't have to be huge, with many lives lost, etc. We'll fall for pretty much anything.

16. IIRC, the only "plan" Trump floated...

was to get all the generals together to make a plan. Had an OOPS moment about that momentarily, but that blew over swiftly, of course.

We cannot let them know we have a plan. That might make them put their guard up. I am sure twitler has a super secret TERRIFIC plan that will get rid of isis by making more nukes and giving tax cuts to rich people. Also, Hellooo WALL! Yeah, enough said.

31. I think he's going to try to talk them to death.

They guy is an empty suit. He's got no experience, no plans, no advisors, no balls, no allies, and no sense of history.

Maybe he can hand them out sets of those fake diamond "Trump"' cufflinks he's famous for.

is that it is not America’s ‘responsibility’ to come up with a plan to beat ISIS.

33. Here's the money quote:

"Gingrich then suggested the United States should consider suspending civil liberties to combat terrorism as former President Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War."

Get ready for some serious terrorism scaremongering to convince the cowardly pant-shitters among us give up their rights and ours so they can "feel" safe. Fear Sells.

34. Isn't that why he wants to make more nukes? He plans on nuking them to submission

When Rachel asked Kelley Anne why nuclear proliferation, her response is because the world is so dangerous nowadays with ISIL. He plans on being real tough with them.



The orange baboon is so stupid, it hurts. But now he is stupid AND dangerous.

That corpulent POS should quit while he's still ahead.

Oh that's right. His plastic Stepford wife has a high maintenance fee. Well considering how ugly he is I understand her desire for some compensation.
