Newt GinGRINCH on the Numbers Couch

Newton Leroy McPherson = Seven (7)
Newton Leroy Gingrich = Seven (7)
Newt Gingrich = Two (2)
06/17/1943 = Attraction = Eight (8) and Life Path = Four (4)

[Get full tiers and word patterns for numbers on my post entitled, What the Numbers Represent. To save space, I won’t add them all here, but will mention them as they come up in analysis.]

Up front, I’ve got to be honest. I thought for sure that because of Newt’s gigantic ego, reflected in the size of his head, he’d have a negative Nine (9) somewhere. I was wrong. However, if you’ve been following these numbers, his numbers still make sense.

The following comes from, explaining how he went from being McPherson to Gingrich.

"Gingrich was born in Harrisburg, Dauphin County, in Pennsylvania on June 17, 1943. His mother, 16-year-old Kathleen Daugherty and his father, 19-year-old mechanic, Newton Searles McPherson, divorced three days after the arrival of baby Newt. . . . Daugherty remarried the following year to Robert Bruce Gingrich, a soon-to-be highly decorated Lieutenant-Colonel with the U.S. Army, who officially adopted Newt and changed his last name to Gingrich after McPherson relinquished his custodial rights to the toddler."

The website, details Newt’s flagrant abuse of the system for personal gain, and the abuse of his wives. It exposes his hypocrisies. Some include:

Draft Dodging: "Though he relentlessly pushes military spending and talks like a big time hawk, Gingrich avoided the Vietnam War through a combination of student and family deferments. (He married one of his teachers at age 19.)"

House Banking Scandal: ". . .Where so many congressmen wrote rubber checks on government money, Newt . . . bounced 22 himself, which almost cost him reelection in 1992. His vote for the secret House pay raise, . . . didn’t help."

Gingrich made shady and lucrative book deals with Rupert Murdoch. He used his influence to legislatively benefit Murdoch. (For details, see website at Real Change.)

For Gingrich to call another a flip-flopper, is the pot calling the kettle black. He is on record for having three wives, one with whom he cheated on while leading the impeachment charge against President Bill Clinton. Marital cheating comes under the category of lying. His personal style shows callousness toward women. He brought his wife divorce papers to examine while she was in the hospital being treated for cancer. After their divorce, Jackie Battley had to take her former husband to court to come through with support payments according to

Political ads now proliferate about how he takes money from special interests, how he flip-flops on issues that profit himself and those paying him for beneficial legislation. The scandals are endless. The scandals mentioned here only skim the top of the iceberg.

With Newt’s original and subordinate Conscious Name Directions of Seven (7), his well-documented exploits show that he is definitely not on the positive side of numbers. His grasping for wealth however he can, using the political system to do so, lands him squarely onto the (Pig), (Piggy), and (Gyp) tiers. In fairness, he does gain through honest labor. His prolific authorship and Congressional tenure show he works hard. He works hard using his intelligence and accomplishments to exploit the system for personal gain. Vast achievements, however, do not make someone a good person, merely ambitious.

His other subordinate Conscious Name Direction of Newt Gingrich equals Two (2). His marital cheating suggests that he did not learn (To Be Constant), i.e., he often chooses to (Take Back) commitments regarding relationships or ideals. (Constant, Be Two) in relationships is not his strength, showing he is on the negative side of Number Two (2). Does he consciously flip-flop on ideals based on what they will get him when combined with his other negative Sevens (7) in tiers of (Gyp), (Pig), and (Piggy)?

The Grinch’s hard demeanor and smug smirks give away that he has no compassion or heart. His record also speaks for him. Gingrich’s original Conscious Direction of negative Seven (7) is the result of not learning positive lessons of the previous Number Six (6) that are telling the truth and working hard. He does, however, work hard at accumulating wealth, e.g., his lobbying fees.

MaggieF reports at, "Disgraced former lobbyist Jack Abramoff hit Republican presidential frontrunner Newt Gingrich for his claims that he did no lobbying on behalf of the mortgage and health care companies that paid him millions in consulting fees, calling the system of providing ‘strategic advice’ corrupt. . . . ‘I don’t want to say he’s lying, he may believe what he’s saying, but people have to understand that lobbying isn’t just going to meet with members,’ Abramoff said."

Gingrich’s $500,000 Tiffany credit line is another example of hedonistic lust. This is not someone who embraces personal austerity though he legislated for others to do so. For example, reports, "During Gingrich’s term as Speaker, Congress passed and President Bill Clinton signed the 1996 reform of welfare, [and] a capital gains tax cut . . . "

According to Wikipedia, "A central pledge of President Clinton’s campaign was to reform the welfare system, adding changes such as work requirements for recipients. However, by 1994, the Clinton Administration appeared to be more concerned with universal health care and no details or a plan had emerged on welfare reform. Gingrich accused the President of stalling on welfare, and proclaimed that Congress could pass a welfare reform bill in as little as ninety days. Gingrich insisted that the Republican Party would continue to apply political pressure to the President to approve welfare legislation. . . . In 1996, after constructing two welfare reform bills that were vetoed by President Clinton, Gingrich and his supporters pushed for passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, which was intended to reconstruct the welfare system. The act gave state governments more autonomy over welfare delivery, while also reducing the federal government’s responsibilities. It instituted the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program, which placed time limits on welfare assistance and replaced the longstanding Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. Other changes to the welfare system included stricter conditions for food stamp eligibility, reductions in immigrant welfare assistance, and recipient work requirements."

Nothing is wrong with working hard. However, when jobs are limited, fitness and age are factors, cutting or eliminating social safety nets is callous. Real Legislators roll up their sleeves and work out how to bring jobs home to America rather than, out sourcing them to payoff contributors while eliminating social safety nets.

I’d like legislators such as Gingrich who espouse personal responsibility doing the grunt work of building bridges, fighting in fox holes, delivering mail, and personally taking care of children. Then maybe they have the right to tell others how to live. Most Congresspersons work three days a week and spend most of their time working hard at fund-raising. Rubbing shoulders with celebrities, eating caviar, and sipping champagne is a real drag. It is the height of hypocrisy to complain as they do about it. What, they say only finger-sandwiches? I suppose that when the bottom half is scrambling for crumbs, cucumbers seem like caviar.

Even Gingrich’s former Republican Senate colleagues are coming out against him, i.e., they didn’t approve of his hypocritical leadership style. According to former colleagues, he [Gingrich] would promise one thing and do another. They seem aware of his tendency to (Take Back) commitments. Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is vocally and unabashedly dishing Gingrich.

$300,000 of ethics fines follow the former Speaker from his days in Congress. Wikipedia reports about the fine, "Eighty-four ethics charges were filed against Speaker Gingrich during his term, including claiming tax-exempt status for a college course run for political purposes. Following an investigation by the House Ethics Committee Gingrich was sanctioned US$300,000 on a 395-28 House vote. Gingrich acknowledged in January 1997 that ‘In my name and over my signature, inaccurate, incomplete and unreliable statements were given to the committee’. The House Ethics Committee concluded that inaccurate information supplied to investigators represented ‘intentional or . . . reckless’ disregard of House rules. Special Counsel James M. Cole concluded that Gingrich violated federal tax law and had lied to the ethics panel in an effort to force the committee to dismiss the complaint against him."

Gingrich's disdainful haughtiness belies that he is not a paragon of virtue making him come across as someone who lacks personal perspective. His bloated gravitas makes him seem foolish to anyone who knows his record and sees beyond his posturing.

Newt’s Life Path is Four (4). He seems (Moved) toward positive personal change to get his way and be (Made Victorious) in material matters rather than overcoming personal angst. He works to be (Made Victorious) in personal exploits. Altruism doesn’t seem his motivation.

William Douglas of McClatchy Newspapers, writing in Newt Gingrich - Portrait of a Complicated Politician, asks probing questions. For example, "Is he [Gingrich] the undisciplined, self-absorbed House speaker who admitted that a 1995 shutdown of the federal government was prompted in part by what he perceived as a cold shoulder and shabby treatment by President Bill Clinton during a long Air Force One flight?"

If Gingrich led impeachment against Clinton for sexual misconduct for giving him a cold shoulder, then he rightfully belongs on the (Do Venom) tier of Four (4). He did this all while embroiled in his own sexual scandal. This hypocrisy and his record of vicious tactics show he has a propensity to (Do Venom) of being vindictive.

Gingrich gets caught doing exactly that for which he complains and penalizes others for doing. Wikipedia reports, "May 1988, Gingrich (along with 77 other House members and Common Cause) brought ethics charges against Democratic Speaker Jim Wright, who was alleged to have used a book deal to circumvent campaign-finance laws and House ethics rules. During the investigation, it was noted Gingrich had his own unusual book deal, for Window of Opportunity, in which publicity expenses were covered by a limited partnership, which raised $105,000 from Republican political supporters to promote sales of Gingrich’s book. Gingrich’s success in forcing Wright’s resignation was in part responsible for his rising influence in the Republican caucus."

When anyone stands in his way, Grinch seems willing to push them aside for his place at the feeding trough, even poor children. Gingrich’s own words prove what a grinch he is. Retweeted from LeftsideAnne is a YouTube video worth watching. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get there with the URL address. Searching YouTube’s site under "You’re a Mean One, New Gingrich" will bring up the video. Gingrich’s own words say, "Young children who are poor ought to learn how to go to work . . ." Apparently, young children who are rich don’t need to learn to work. They can just inherit wealth. If, however, they are his children of his former wife they must take him to court for child support payments as reported Jackie Battley Gingrich had to do.

Gingrich’s Attraction number is Eight (8) that is about being tested. Is he eager for being tested or reluctant? The first three tiers are material testing and the second three are on spiritual testing. We give up material to gain spiritually. Mr. Gingrich does not exude spirituality of someone who can forego any material luxury. He comes across like a pampered aristocrat.

He is intelligent and well spoken. At times, he shows glimmers of self-scrutiny, but only in passing without emotionally substantial introspection. Looking closely, he seems more fluff and puff than stuff, i.e., he seems rooted in materiality rather than spiritual grounding, no matter what religion he adopts. He talks a good game, but he seems steadfast in materialism, showing him grudgingly tested from his Subconscious Attraction. Meaning, only great goading will drag him from his material world.

Water seeking its own level makes those who support him more of a worry than is he. If the GOP base really wants him as President, they need to look deeper into their souls, since they profess greater spirituality than others. It seems what they really want is to hurt the current President, using someone who will deal forceful bar brawl blows. Mr. Gingrich’s negative Four (4) gives him a fighter’s disposition.

When then Speaker Pelosi and DNC Chairman Howard Dean stated that "Impeachment is off the table," for President Bush they opened the door for worse despots taking the White House.

Personally, I want the best persons as candidates, not the meanest because if he or she wins, we citizens are the losers. The problem with letting Gingrich off the hook, i.e., he’s learning his lessons as are we all, is that he wants to be the leader of the free world. Have we learned nothing? Or, is it all just a circus that the media is exploiting for ratings? For surely, grounded voters are looking for the best possible candidates too.
