As we originally reported last week, sources inside the Gingrich capaign said the former Speaker would formally suspend his campaign on Tuesday, May 1, and back Mitt Romney. Today the Gingrich campaign put out a “goodbye” video and now sources say he will officially suspend his campaign sometime Wednesday afternoon on May 2.

Report from CNN:

Soon to be former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on Tuesday thanked his supporters and vowed to continue working to defeat President Barack Obama via web video ahead of his official campaign suspension on Wednesday.

“Because of your help and your support, we were able to put up a terrific campaign, and I want you to know that Callista and I are both very grateful to everybody across the country,” Gingrich said. “I want you to know that we’re going to continue out there on the road. Both Callista and I will be talking, campaigning, making speeches, doing everything we can to help defeat Barack Obama.”

The former House speaker, who announced his White House bid last May, is scheduled to suspend his campaign in the afternoon on Wednesday and back Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Although Romney will be in the Washington, DC area during the day, sources familiar with the session told CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger not to expect Romney to be in attendance at the announcement.

Sources previously told CNN Political Director Mark Preston Gingrich is expected to endorse Romney.

While Romney is not expected at the Wednesday afternoon event, the Romney and Gingrich campaigns have discussed the two appearing at a second event in the near future, according to a source familiar with the discussions.

The two campaigns have had ongoing talks since Gingrich signalled last week he was going to pull out.

Gingrich can help show some unity but his campaign has been over for several weeks now, maybe even a month or more. Ever since he crested winning his home state of Georgia, Gingrich has been on a downward trajectory.

  1. Newt needs to follow his own “nasty” advice he gave to the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Go Home – Take a Bath – and get a REAL JOB which doesn’t “Sponge” off the American Taxpayer. Good Riddance!

  2. im hoping gingrich delays endorsing romney or supports ron paul because i really cant choose romney or obama

  3. Anyone but Obama! Why would we want our nations leader to be a unsuccessful person in private life? What hope would that give our country? I am a Ron Paul supporter however Romney will definitely have my vote,for the sake of saving what is left our dear country…

    • Yeah, but Romney’s whole career has been to destroy the lives and dreams of others in order to enrich himself.

      What we need is for Ron Paul to be drafted this weekend at the Libertarian convention.

      • But RP can only jump start it. What is going to keep it going. Seems like there is only plan A, Yankee engineuity. As there is no way we can compete on labor we have to make everything they make obsolete. Tough order with college kids being taught only what to think and not how to think.

  4. We are really sorry to see you go. We have followed your career and watched you on talk shows for years. We feel you are the only one who can really bring this Country back to the greatness it has been. You understand the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and you have some great ideas for cutting the out of control spending we have seen over these past three years. We wish you and your wife the very best and God Bless you both for continuing your work to return this Country to our core values. The young people of America need to know and understand that our Constitution as written meets the needs of this Country in todays’ world just as it did when it was written.
    Thank you for all your hard work for this great Country.
    Sincerely,
    Gerry and N. Lee Bender

  5. What about the debt: Gingrich Campaign $4.3 Million In Debt. Guess he would have run the country the same way.

    • Billy Malone

      I find it amazing that people actually supported this guy. For people to say that he would make a good President because he “understood” the Constitution is a complete and utter misnomer. He “understood” the Constitution alright… Like all good little Neocons, he “understood” the ways and means to get around it.

  6. Callitsa, the White House Aide, the third wife and mistress for seven years of Gingrich, is a home wrecker and cannot be our First Lady. No way! Callitsa, is 28 yrs younger than big belly Gingrich, so he gave her the present of SIX figures $$$$$$ credit line at Tiffany’s Jewelry store for her love talents. As a first Lady, she would be excited teaching college girls how to snatch a millionaire old man from his home and his wife. Callista has no class, she can not be a role model to the position of First Lady, with or without jewelry. SHAME ON HER!
    Gingrich) twists lies and truth like food in his belly. He and Obama are a team of superior arrogance, superior ego, debate skills and expert rhetoric blab blab. The difference is that Obama needs teleprompts, because of short memory for promises.
    Romney is the only BRAIN with the capacity to turn our Economy around with two degrees from Harvard in Law and MBA. He studied ECONOMICS and applied it in his business very successfully. He is a faithful husband and family man. Women admire him and men envy him. He paid income tax according to law. He paid 15% in his investment income taxes and 25% to charity. Do you know the percentage of charity contributions from Gingrich and Obama? MODEST! Independent

  7. im disapointed in this site for having a mitt romney tab but not a ron paul tab its not just obama vs romney as the media would like it to be

  8. Good link (shows conservative postulations, not ones overblown in Ron Paul’s favor)

    As of 4/29 Rmoney has only 573 bound delegates!

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AnQiiNVim6gZdGNFc0M2U3UzQ24tSDJzZjFkM1VGdXc#gid=0

    I’d expect that about 75% form Rick’s and Newt’s would go to Ron Paul (even though Newt will most likely end his political career today by endorsing Mitt).

    I’ll STATE NOW that Rmoney will not acquire the 1144 BOUND needed to avoid a Brokered Convention!

    • Looking at the voter’s track record, they are pretty stupid, so why do you think they sill see the light this time around? As I have posted earlier, even with the huge debt Rick and Newt have run up, there are still many the feel either was the man for the job.

      Mitt got 72% of the vote in Ma and was 47 out of 50 when he was in charge there. The worse you treat ’em the better they like you.

  9. Guy be nice and greateful to the man who killed the person whom, if he was still alive today, he would sweep America by killing almost all Americains. You may be a racist, hating Obama because is black, but he is the hero because your Bush gave up on catching Osama bin Laden. Anyway, whatever you say, I hate TO SAY THIS but you GONNA have to spend the next 4 years with the Man of People – OBAMA. A MAN WHO IS NOT GREEDY BUT FIGHT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE IN NEED.

    LIVE WITH IT!

    • President Barack Obama won an unprecedented 96 percent of the black vote. At least 4% got it right

  10. Mike — good one!

    *Mitt Romney, American Parasite*

    It explains how Bain Capital worked. They would buy SUCCESSFUL companies, with little down, borrowed huge amounts, saddling them with crushing debt, refused to continue equipment purchases or maintenance. Then they would pay themselves huge “management” fees.

  11. What did this young girl do, to get the Dogs-of-State to pursue and knock her of her bike brutally to the ground, and then maul her into painful submission?

    Watch carefully the chronological order (FREEZE picture at the time count given below — to see why):

    1) 0:32 — one of the Dogs-of-State signals the rest that he’s seen a cyclist taking a picture of “SOMETHING THAT MUST NOT BE SEEN”! So they run in pursuit.

    2) 0:44 — she is dragged down by two Dogs-of-State

    3) 0:51 — many more “Gang-of-Brothers” arrive surrounding their victim being mauled on the ground

    4) 0:57 — see the hand taking her cell phone away from her

    5) 1:10 — she manages to free one hand

    6) 1:11 — she tries to pass it in desperation to the people outside the circle of about a dozen Dogs-of-State trampling her rights

    7) 1:12 – 2:03 — she is still screaming in pain…but no-one can help her (since the AGGRESSORS, The Dogs-of-State are ARMED, and thus can inflict pain AT WILL on the disarmed, peaceful citizens)!

    And more abuses follow!

    This is the MOST DISTURBING VIDEO I’ve seen taped on American soil!

    DISGUSTING is mild — words fail me to describe my feelings on this OUTRAGE — watching the ‘US KGB’ MAUL and ABUSE a young girl!

    Don’t know what you’ll do about it — but I’m sending this to Judge Napolitano, the ACLU, News Media outlets, and even contacting my Lawyers to look into filing a civil case against these SS Troopers (hopefully pics can be enlarged so their badge numbers can be seen)!

    • Bet those dogs-of-state are paid a lot more than the average person they “serve” to protect

      • I’m ashamed to say that we are no longer ‘Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave’ but by MOB RULE have become: “Land of the Oppressed and the Home of the Meek”!

        Unless Ron Paul WINS (which will amount to a Miracle, since The Ones In Power, that are occupying Our Nation, are doing their best by hook-and-crook to PREVENT it) IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE!

        A TRUE POLICE STATE that controls ALL “Citizens” (by then, the proper term will be SUBJECTS)!

        It will be Historically Termed as: ROMNEY’S REVENGE (when he looses to BO)!

        Fight for Ron Paul to win in 2012, or face this as a prelude of ‘Things to Come’:

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTSu5APmL0M&feature=player_embedded

    • Watch how easily Ron Paul dismantles the dogma of “Professor” Krugman (from Princeton…no-one can possibly claim the REAL title of Legitimate Professor from this Nest of Political Correctness Indoctrination “School”)?!

      By extrapolation (since one of the most venomous creatures in America — Krugman — was so easily disposed of) Ron Paul will make mince-meat out of BO (who can hardly speak coherently without a teleprompter)!

      Share this as an assurance that Ron Paul will destroy in any debate the current occupier of the White House — the BO!

    • This is a Prosecutor’s Bonanza! From Jennifer Taylor’s recordings — several lawsuits can be successfully filed. Federal Crime to fraudulently influence an election’s result (a Felony); State and possible Federal Crime to falsify ‘Registered Mark’ documents; Federal and State Crime to Falsely take someone’s Identity (Jennifer Taylor needs to identify the woman that Impersonated her, and the Other Impersonators that did so to The Legitimate Ones, on the Count ANNOUNCED as TRUE; the Voice accepting these FAKE “refusals for nomination” of Ron Paul needs to be pinned to the individual (so his Name and Address can also be tied as Collusion to Defraud)! Very important to have Exact Name and accurate address — in order to file lawsuits expeditiously!

      All of these need to be leaned on to admit they worked under Romney’s DIRECT Orders — or face long terms in jail!

      After all, it is Romney we need to put in Jail (since he’s the General that gave the orders TO DEFRAUD, if not, THAN HE IS THE ONE THAT CAN’T CONTROL HIS OWN TROOPS — THE FAULT STILL LAYS WITH HIM)!

      HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS — the Weakest Link has been SPOTTED (see video count from 3:14 to 3:21).

      This Young Man MUST be Confronted with these ONLY Options: become Rmoney’s sacrificial lamb, and spend your Life in a Federal Prison (till you grow old and gray); OR get Amnesty by testifying Against Romney, that you were put up to do this on HIS BEHALF!

  12. Mitt Romney is a God-fearing Christian who truly cares about his fellow Americans. Any man who is willing to close the doors of a buisness in order fly 30 of his employees to New York City to search for a co-worker’s missing daughter has my vote. I hope Newt and Rick do officially endorse this great man.

    God bless America, and God bless Mitt Romney and his camp!

    See the fact check article about this true story:

  13. Plenty of the former employees of companies that Bain bought would not agree with you on that point. For instance, Bain Capital formed GS Industries by snapping up steel companies. GSI went bankrupt, and “more than 700 workers were fired, losing not only their jobs but health insurance, severance and a chunk of their pension benefits. GSI retirees also lost their health insurance and other benefits.” However, “Bain partners received about $50 million on their initial investment, a 100% gain.”

    • Four easy steps to assure Ron Paul wins in 2012:

      Ron Paul wins 22 out of 25 delegates in Nevada!

      Lessons learned HOW TO ASSURE a GOP Convention is properly run (so Ron Paul is not cheated of TRUE delegates by the desperate frauds committed by Rmoney’s PLANTS!):

      1) Have two or more patrolling the venue to CATCH Mitt’s goons trying to pass FAKE PAPER COPIES (as they did in Maine and Nevada) and have them removed from the premisses (making sure each one is photographed/ video taped/ live stream shown…so they can be identified later).

      2) Make sure all Badges are legitimate (not ink-jet printed FAKES) before ANY are allowed to be heard at the Convention.

      3) Tape ALL proceedings (from many angles!) — even better to have them live-streamed to thousands outside. See how to easily set up live-streaming by watching the last video — “my setup”.

      4) Stay till the VERY END — make sure you (the Ron Paul supporters) are the LAST ones to leave the building (because, in the last few minutes, Mitt’s Goons will try to ANNUL the Actual Delegates Elected, and by subterfuge replace them with their own fake delegates)!

      After spending about six hours watching eight videos from USTREAM (Nevada Convention) — the above are my conclusions!

      See them for yourself below to form your own:

      http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nevadaconvention/videos

      • No matter how much the guy lies, cheats and steals he still can’t cover up his record as governor. 47 out of 50 in jobs and big tax hikes (aka fees).

        • Blow dealt to Rmoney over the weekend!

          Ron Paul gains 44 more Delegates — Rmoney gets only 6 !!!

          Rmoney’s camp Attempt TO DEFRAUD the Elections — by sending plants using FAKE delegate badges and circulating FAKE delegate slates, and even impersonating real delegates — BACKFIRES! It only helped to galvanize The People in further rejecting Perfidy Mitt!

          Before:
          Paul —148
          Romney—697

          As of May 7th:
          Paul —192
          Romney—703

          More good news for Ron Paul — according to RNC rule #38, the Mitt has probably lost about 50 bound delegates to him; while Ron Paul has probably gained that number.

          Therefore, it could be that the more accurate numbers are:

          Paul —242
          Romney—653

          Fox New’s REALITY CHECK Show is the source for the above numbers. Watch this video and pay attention the explanation of Rule #38 (from minute 3:15 till end of video –4:23).

  14. Donate to Ron Paul as much as you can NOW (after-all, if he is not elected as President, your paper money will most likely become WORTHLESS in the VERY near future)!

    The below has to be THE BEST Ron Paul QUOTE!!!

    “I am convinced that there are more threats to American liberty within the 10 mile radius of my office on Capitol Hill, than there are on the rest of the globe.” — Ron Paul

  15. Shocker In Tampa — Ron Paul Wins!
    ————————————–

    These WILL be the headlines next day — here is why:

    According to RNC Rule #38 — at the Tampa Convention NONE of the Delegates are ACTUALLY Bound! Delegates can vote according to their own judgment and conscience — and are NOT bound to vote according to how most delegates from their state vote.

    Precedent was set in 2008 Utah by Legal Council for the RNC (stating: The RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose).

    Also, the Republican (and Democratic) Parties are Private Organizations — so voting within a party is NOT bound by Election Law!
    ——————————————————

    What does this mean? It clearly shows that ANY or ALL delegates can abstain from voting in the 1st round. Or in other words — Bye-bye Mitt !!!

    What do we need to do? Push for as many more delegate wins for Ron Paul as humanly possible — so a Ron Paul victory in Tampa is assured!

    But most importantly NOW — SHARE this information (spread it like wildfire)!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8kQly7ZR34&feature=player_embedded

  16. My thoughts:

    1) Ron Paul HAS to become our next President! The mantle of delivering us from this evil government is being thrust upon him — and he, being the brave Patriot, WILL accept it…we just need to do our part to assure his win in Tampa (make sure all National Delegates are aware of RNC rule #38)!

    2) Seems his team though, is pulling back the reins:

    a) Benton SEEMS to be conceding to Mitt (perhaps a ploy to have his hawks relax)?
    b) What is worrisome is the transparent attempt to conciliate with Rmoney (the bartering of principles is the downfall of liberty).
    c) The plea to have Ron Paul supporters respect the BLATANT Frauds perpetrated in front of their own eyes (that one is a shocker — rather than expose the GOP’s PERFIDY, the people are asked to close their eyes, be mute and accept their disenfranchisement for the sake of DECORUM)!?

    3) Benton further astounds us with the comment that Ron Paul may, or may NOT, speak at the Tampa Convention (ploy, subterfuge or just plain betrayal)? Ron Paul HAS to make his speech in Tampa (which will finally give his message a national exposure)!

    4) Benton seems to indicate that the goal is no longer to win the presidency, but rather to eventually change the Republican Party by the election of a few Ron Paul supporters in key positions (long term wishing, rather than a spot on solution — the nomination of Ron Paul)?
    —————————————————————————————-

    My apodictic statements — and you can bet the farm they’ll transpire (unless Ron Paul wins)!

    A) Mitt Rmoney will NEVER become President (his “followers” are apathetic, and Ron Paul’s true supporters will NEVER vote for him, but will write him in instead — meaning Mitt will lose about 10% of the Republican vote and possibly 5% from the Libertarian one).

    B) Therefore, the BO will be reelected by a landslide.

    C) All of the myopic visions of Jesse Benton’s goal to have some Ron Paul supporters get elected in order to give the Republican Party “new vision”, will come to naught — since the BO will have 4 more years to finish the destruction of our nation he started (and by the time he’s done, the BO will also be successful in destroying ALL opposition…such as a “NEW” Republican Party ).

    D) Under the BO’s second term: Expect the disappearance of ALL individual Freedom, a total collapse of our economy, loss of right to private property, a police state that tells us what to do…or else…! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
    ———————————————————————————-

    The ONLY Logical Conclusion that follows to prevent the above is:

    Mitt Romney HAS to withdraw from the race now IN FAVOR of Ron Paul, and pledge his total support of Ron Paul! (Failure to do so, will result in Mitt becoming an UGLY footnote in US History — as the one that ASSURED the BO’s DESTRUCTION of the USA, because he, Mitt, was too selfish to assume he may win — when faced with the FACTS he NEVER could)!
    ———————————————————————————-

    Send this to the Mitt — Resign NOW in Favor of Ron Paul, or be cursed LATER as the one that Destroyed The USA!
    ————————————————————————————

    Below is Jesse Benton’s message:

  17. Ron Paul to WIN in Tampa — see HOW below!

    Superb article — must read!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robin-koerner/its-romneys-to-lose-heres_b_1519827.html?ref=fb&src=sp&comm_ref=false

    Some key points:

    “Romney’s Achilles’ heel is a moral one. It is the sum of all of the cheating that has been done in his favor by the party. For example…
    In Oklahoma, party officials pulled out a ballroom divider to cordon off Ron Paul supporters and shut them out of participation. Later they turned out the lights. Voice votes that were clearly lost were declared won….In Virginia, at a district convention, officials coaxed the Ron Paul delegation outside and then locked the door. The pastor of the church that was hosting the event was, himself, locked outside.”

    (And the parade of GOP frauds in favor of Mitt goes on: nearly in every State!)

    Add to this breaking rule #11 —“…the GOP wasn’t bound by its own rules when it chose to provide material support to Romney while the race was still ongoing.”

    It is the American Way to support an underdog — Ron Paul in this case — “People get very excited about an underdog who can win — especially if he is an underdog that was kept down by nefarious means.”

    Read this superb article — and pass it on!

    Ron Paul to WIN — Or America to END 2012!
