Newt Gingrich: Elites “Don’t Want to Tell Us the Truth About Islamic Terrorism”

Jun. 12, 2016 – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday morning that the elites in the U.S. “don’t want to tell us the truth about Islamic terrorism.”

“Well, the elites in this country are intentionally dishonest. That’s part of why you have the rise of Trump and Sanders. People know that the game is rigged,” Gingrich said on Fox and Friends Sunday morning. “They don’t want to tell us the truth about the world, they don’t want to tell us the truth about trade deals, they don’t want to tell us the truth about who is getting payoffs in Washington, and they don’t want to tell us the truth about Islamic terrorism.”

Omar Mateen, 29, the Muslim U.S. citizen born to Afghan parents, “was on the radar before” he opened fire in a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing at least 53 people. A senior law enforcement source told People’s Pundit Daily that Mateen was twice a person of interest in terror-related investigations, once in 2013 and again 2014.

The FBI publicly confirmed this report at a press conference in Orlando a little after 3:05 p.m. EST. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack Sunday afternoon through its Amaq news agency, but it is not yet clear whether the shooting was actually directed by the terror organization or inspired by it.

“That shouldn’t shock anybody — Why would you expect the Washington Post and New York Times to be honest about anything,” the former speaker added.
