    . September 12, 2014 Newt Gingrich : The Five Strategic Failures in President Obama's ISIS Speech ===================================================== President Obama gave a pretty good speech Wednesday night. Pressured by the American people's overwhelming support for defeating ISIS, President Obama gave a speech his predecessor, President George W. Bush could have applauded. Many of President Obama's words were reassuring. He was dedicated to defeating ISIS. He would pursue anyone who threatened America. He was committed to a long, difficult campaign. Unfortunately for the President and the country, there were five major strategic flaws in his speech. These flaws are so profound that...

    . September 10, 2014 Newt Gingrich : 10 Questions for Obama on ISIS ===================================================== President Barack Obama has a remarkable opportunity Wednesday night. The American people have been awakened by the videotaped beheading of two U.S. journalists. Many Americans have also been deeply angered by the killing of Christians and other minorities by the Islamist radicals. Americans increasingly realize that the entire movement of radical Islamism, from Boko Haram in Nigeria through Hamas in Gaza to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is dangerous to Americans and to our civilization. Americans know that 13 years of effort under two...

    Former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Wednesday that he would like to “turn the Pentagon into a triangle.” “I always tell people I’m a hawk,” Gingrich said. “But I’m a cheap hawk.” Gingrich honored the 20th anniversary of his “Contract with America” by pointing conservatives back to a key point in his Republican blueprint, arguing that federal bureaucracy cannot simply be “fixed” but must be overhauled and replaced. The Pentagon, Gingrich stressed, must be included in this overhaul.

    . July 23, 2014 Newt Gingrich : Obama’s Attack on Israel ===================================================== "The success of Hamas in closing Israeli airspace is a great victory for the resistance, and is the crown of Israel’s failure,” a Hamas spokesman said today. When Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948, the United States became the first country in the world to recognize the Jewish state, just 11 minutes later. That recognition, however, came after one of the greatest foreign policy disputes in American history—a fight in which Secretary of State George C. Marshall told President Truman that “if the President were to [recognize...

    Halper believes that the Clintons’ effort to in effect keep their friends close while turning enemies into friends has been a masterful and hugely overlooked part of the rebuilding of their machine: "What has been little understood in the past decade, from 2001 to the present, is how successfully the Clintons undertook a systematic, comprehensive, and sustained effort to win over leaders in the GOP, especially figures who were once the biggest critics. In return, both Clintons were able to develop a bipartisan, statesmanlike image that had eluded them through eight years in the White House."

    . July 7, 2014 Newt Gingrich : President Obama's Border Absurdity ===================================================== President Barack Obama is in Texas today. Texas is the center of the current crisis at the border. From Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, thousands upon thousands of children are pouring into the United States. This flood of foreign children is not a problem of border security. They are not sneaking across the border illegally. Under the Feinstein Amendment of 2008, unaccompanied minors from these countries can present themselves at a legal border crossing, claim to be political refugees and seek asylum. The argument on the left is...

    . June 27, 2014 Newt Gingrich Obama's Insane Illegal Immigration Policy The flood of children coming to the United States is a much worse and more alarming story than you might imagine. This disaster is a direct result of deliberate Obama administration policy that encourages illegal immigration. In August 2012 the administration announced, basically, that it would not deport most children who come to the United States illegally. By any reasonable standard, the Obama policy is insane and the results were predictable. This is a humanitarian crisis that the President himself created. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and the...

June 22, 2014 Newt Gingrich Bureaucrats Should Keep Their Hands Off Our Smartphones Does a week go by without news of federal bureaucrats outrageously extending their tentacles of authority over more of society? Earlier this month it was the EPA, announcing its plan to introduce on its own the carbon dioxide limits that Congress specifically rejected. Then it was the FDA, insinuating itself into the centuries-old process of aging cheese. Last week it was the IRS trying to shed at last the inconvenience of congressional oversight. Now the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration is claiming sweeping authority over our...

    The rapper still has a bone to pick with the president.Kanye West can probably forget about being invited to the White House anytime soon. During an interview with Power 106 FM in Los Angeles, West was asked what he thought about the president and had a few unkind words. He replied, “You can’t effect change from inside the White House like that ... you gotta have the money.” SNIP According to the Daily Mail, West continued his rant, actually contradicting himself: “Good ideas usually aren’t connected to money as much ... Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap.” If you...

    . June 18, 2014 Newt Gingrich We are watching the most significant crisis of constitutional order since Watergate, the last time an administration broke the law deliberately and repeatedly. And none of the current cases look more Nixonian than what has been happening at the IRS. Thirteen months ago, President Obama stood before the American people, acknowledged that the IRS had “improperly screened conservative groups,” and promised to get to the bottom of the matter and to “hold the responsible parties accountable.” “It’s inexcusable,” he said, “and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about...

    Wednesday on CNN's "Crossfire," former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said the prisoner exchange of five top Taliban terrorist for the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was not an example of President Barack Obama negotiation with the terrorist but instead the president surrendered to the Taliban saying "this deal is a totally surrender to the terrorist." To prove his point Gingrich showed the videos released by the Taliban showing the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and the greeting of the terrorist in Qatar. Co-host and former deputy campaign manager for Obama, Stephanie Cutter dismissed the...

    Hillary Clinton's leadership as secretary of state regarding the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram could become at least as serious an issue as her decisions surrounding the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Much of the attention Thursday was on the announcement that the House will create a select committee to investigate Benghazi, but the same day, Daily Beast reporter Josh Rogin revealed details about her time as secretary of state that raise significant questions about her broader record on issues of terrorism. Rogin reported that from 2011 through early 2013, the Clinton State Department repeatedly rejected efforts to...

    The former House speaker and Republican presidential candidate calls Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and other Democrats “are nut-cake ideologues” and less than competent. Gingrich is among the prominent Republicans appearing Saturday at a GOP Freedom Summit in Manchester, N.H., the Associated Press noted. Several potential Republican White House contenders — among them Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Ted Cruz, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee — are headlining the conference hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity. Gingrich and other speakers attacked the health law — a central piece of the GOP’s strategy...

    Newt Gingrich laid it out perfectly on Sunday. The forced ouster of Mozilla co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich this week was a sign of the "new fascism" of liberalism that's sweeping American life. "People need to realize, if you're a young faculty member, in a lot of places if you're a young member of a news department and you have the wrong views – meaning conservative – you have no career," Gingrich said on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." "This is just the most open and blatant example of the new fascism, which says, 'if you don't agree with us...

    Israeli PM will demand release of Jonathan Pollard, convicted of spying for Israel against US in 1987, reports say. The Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu will link the release of former US naval intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard, convicted of spying against the US for Israel, to progress in the US-sponsored peace talks with the Palestinians, Israeli media reported on Tuesday. The reports said Netanyahu would either demand Pollard's release when Israel signed a framework agreement, or as part of a prisoner exchange involving Arab citizens of Israel held for terrorist offences, who have always been excluded from previous agreements. Netanyahu's...

    CNN pundit and former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich joined the growing chorus of supporters for suspended Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on Thursday, comparing the duck-call mogul to Pope Francis on his show, Crossfire. Robertson was suspended from the show by A&E after making anti-gay remarks to GQ magazine – but according to Gingrich, the comments were nothing short of “remarkable.” “Ironically, if you read the whole interview, not just take one section, he talks very specifically about loving everybody,” Gingrich, a former Republican presidential candidate, said on Crossfire. “He talks very specifically about not being judgmental toward...

"Yesterday I issued a heartfelt and personal statement about the passing of President Nelson Mandela. I said that his family and his country would be in my prayers and Callista's prayers," Gingrich wrote on Friday. "I was surprised by the hostility and vehemence of some of the people who reacted to me saying a kind word about a unique historic figure. So let me say to those conservatives...

I was surprised by the hostility and vehemence of some of the people who reacted to me saying a kind word about a unique historic figure.
