MIC CHECK!!! Occupy Des Moines Mic Checks Newt Gingrich while he was receiving a key endorsement from Iowa House Speaker Kraig Paulson. Although small in number, Occupy Des Moines did a great job disrupting Gingrich’s acceptance speech. A bad day all around for Newt Gingrich because he not only got heckled and embarrassed, but his campaign website got OCCUPIED as well. In a clever bit of IP redirection, when you try to go to NewtGingrich.com, you will be redirected to various sites across the internet with negative stories regarding Gingrich himself. I tried to access NewtGingrich.com’s site 5 separate times and ended up in 5 different places, from The Atlantic, Washington Post, Youtube, etc. It is unclear who actually hacked the website, but kudos to them!
The consistent pressure on Newt Gingrich from all sides including from within his own party , has decimated his standing as the GOP front-runner, and the long-time political insider is now experiencing a free fall in the polls no so dissimilar to Herman Cain‘s demise.

MIC CHECK!!! Well good ole Newt finally gets dealt with specifically, thanks to some ingenious Occupy protesters! No 1 %er is safe. We ARE the Boogie-men of they’re nightmares, a growing force, a growing voice, standing up to the excesses and corruption of the elite. THIS is what Democracy looks like! – Occupy Cyberspace-American Autumn
On Thursday, December 7, a few dozen protesters snuck into a fundraiser for GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. The protesters chanted “We are the 99 percent!” and disrupted the event before being ejected by the Willard hotel’s security.
About 25 protesters entered the event with the purpose of asking Gingrich to meet with the “99 percent outside” rather than the “one percent inside contributing thousands to his campaign.” Demonstrators chanted “We Are The 99 Percent!” before being ejected by security.
Sometimes I think Michelle Bachmann is in her own little world, but that’s alright, at least they know her there. There should be quite a few GOP‘ers dropping from the race in the coming weeks, and Michelle Bachmann should be at the front of the line.

It’s amazing to me, that the American public would even consider a man like Newt Gingrich for public office, much less for the Presidency of the United States. His recent surge in the polls is obviously aided and/or manufactured by the media, and he is just the latest GOP turd (candidate) to float to the top of the political toilet bowl. But Newt has outdone himself this time. During a recent debate with Herman Cain, Gingrich let out a well-practiced diatribe against The Occupy Wall Street Movement in which he tells the protestors to “Get a job right after you take a Bath” Check Out the video of this classically clueless GOP front-runners moment below……..
Last time I checked, Mr. Gingrich was running for President of The United States of America, which includes EVERY AMERICAN, not just the 1%. If he seriously wants to be elected president of just the rich and influential, then he should enter a different race altogether. America is not just for the “haves” or “have-nots”, but it’s greatest strength comes from the totality of the population and not just 1 individual or class. Newt Gingrich represents everything that is wrong with America, it’s corruption, cronyism, lack of compassion, and most of all, it’s apathy, the very things that #OWS are protesting against. No wonder he felt the need to attack the movement……..but Thanks Newt, for telling us we need a bath, and employment. Here’s a tip for you…. You should Brush your teeth more often, because the Bullshit coming out of your mouth, is starting to leave a stain.
