Gingrich's proposed executive orders

Four executive order proposals from Newt would, in the words of the Des Moines Register columnist Tom Beaumont, "send a signal to conservatives how quickly a Republican president could set the nation on a different path." Two of the proposals "are aimed squarely at appealing to social conservatives, who form a core constituency of Republican activists in Iowa, expected to host the leadoff nominating caucuses next year."

The four proposed ideas, described below by Beaumont, were released before the Faith and Freedom Forum Monday:

-- "prohibiting funding to international family planning groups that provide abortions"

-- "reinstating a George W. Bush administration rule that doctors and nurses have the right not to participate in abortions"

-- "ridding the White House of a series of so-called czars -- high-level officials who oversee a particular policy who in some cases have received Senate confirmation"

-- "relocating the U.S. embassy in Israel to the capital of Jerusalem, a policy backed by national security conservatives and evangelical Christians" (Israel is the only country that we do not allow to pick where our embassy will be located.)
