Newt Gingrich's private ventures are going bankrupt


Those diamonds don't pay for themselves people! What are they going to do now?

(Reuters) - ATLANTA - When he entered the race for the Republican presidential nomination in May 2011, Newt Gingrich was the prosperous head of a small empire commonly known as Newt Inc, which included both for-profit consultancies and nonprofit foundations.

Altogether, these entwined ventures pulled in more than $110 million over the past decade. Now the vestiges of this empire are mired in debt, as is Gingrich's campaign fund.

A bankruptcy proceeding under way in Atlanta will determine whether the one company still owned by Callista Gingrich, Gingrich Productions, will lose an expected payout that now constitutes the bulk of the Gingriches' net worth.

The bankrupt corporation is the Center for Health Transformation, whose revenues came from the hefty dues paid by corporations for assistance in formulating and promoting certain healthcare policies.

In your DREAMS, Newt


Newton Leroy Gingrich was asked who he'd like to see playing the lead in a movie about his life.

His answer? No, not any of these actors. No, no, he went straight to-- wait for it-- Brad Pitt.

No, I'm not kidding.

It must be the strong resemblance, right? Why, one might even mistake them for twins.

If one were sight challenged.

Via Politico:

"No, I don’t look like him at all,” said Gingrich. “He's thinner, he's better looking, he's younger. But you asked me if I had anyone who could play me in a movie, why not go for Brad Pitt? Look if you’re gonna go for it … You gotta relax and just, you know, let your imagination soar.”

Nice try, Newton. And who would play your wives, starting with Callista?


VIDEO: Could a Black or Democratic president have an open marriage too?


Thom Hartmann. 'Nuff said.


Eleanor Clift, Newsweek & Tim Cavanaugh, Columnist-Reason Magazine Marianne Gingrich is now talking about her ex-husband Newt in an interview airing on ABC tonight. And word on the street is that Newt wanting an "open marriage" is just one of many explosive revelations set to come out in tonight's interview, in which his ex-wife says he lacks the character to be President. What does it say about our society - and our press - that if a Black man like Obama had done the same he would have had no chance whatsoever to run for high office?
