One of the most controversial figures in America is facing an epic political failure and liberals are cheering about it.
President Donald Trump previously named Callista Gingrich as U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. However, Gingrich – the wife of Republican politician Newt Gingrich – is now finding out that nobody in Washington D.C. wants her to get the job.
It has been more than a month since Trump appointed Gingrich to the international position. However, even though Republicans control Congress, they have so far refused to take up confirmation proceedings for the Vatican job.
Eight career diplomats are currently awaiting confirmation to ambassadorships or other positions at that rank, and eight political appointees are awaiting Senate action to get them into similar positions.
Among the nominees who cleared the committee process but were not confirmed before the August recess is Callista Gingrich, the wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whom Trump has tapped to be ambassador to the Vatican.
Some significant positions are not even that far along in the process, including a pick for ambassador to South Korea. That job has become more significant with the increasing provocations by North Korea, including its launch last week of a missile that arced over the northern part of Japan.
This is just the latest example of the Republicans being totally dysfunctional. They have the White House, the House, and the Senate, and yet they can’t seem to get anything done.
This is good news for most Americans – people have been disturbed to learn about Gingrich’s questionable past, in addition to her husband’s long history of scheming against the American people.
Gingrich is an author, columnist, and president of Gingrich Productions. She and her husband, Newt, founded the company to feature the couple’s media work and provide consulting services. Gingrich Productions also rents out its email list, which reportedly has 250,000 subscribers and was used by the Trump campaign during the election.
Gingrich Productions sends numerous shady sponsored emails, including ones that claim that “cancer was cured back in 1925” and “the actual cure” for cancer can be found in the Bible — and it can be unlocked by subscribing to a newsletter for $74 (or $37 if you’re over the age of 60). The emails are from Health Revelations and Health Sciences Institute (HSI), which are both owned by NewMarket Health, LLC, a subsidiary of Agora, Inc.
… HSI and Health Revelations have been heavily criticized for their shady business practices and marketing of scammy medical advice. The conservative movement has been heavily infected with scams. Similar cancer “cure” emails became an issue during the Republican presidential primary when then-candidate Mike Huckabee was criticized for sending out sponsored emails from Health Revelations.
Is this the kind of person we want representing America to the rest of the world? I don’t think so!
