  • Newt Gingrich: The ‘experts’ were wrong in 2016; they could be wrong in 2018 too

    As you watch the 2018 campaign being analyzed by pundits on TV, in newspapers, and in blogs, just remember how wrong they all were in 2016. They were wrong about candidate Donald J. Trump all through the primaries. They were wrong about the impact of the Republican and Democratic conventions. They were wrong throughout the fall campaign – and they kept telling us why each new headline signified the end of Trump’s candidacy. Finally, they were wrong on Election Day, up until the actual results gave them no alternative but to accept the reality that Trump had won as a...
  • Newt Gingrich: Trump should 'just say no' to Mueller's absurd questions

    President Trump should adopt first lady Nancy Reagan’s famous anti-drug slogan in his current fight with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. When asked to testify in Mueller’s Russia probe, Trump should “just say no.” Based on the Monday New York Times story headlined “The Questions Mueller Wants to Ask Trump About Obstruction, and What They Mean,” by Matt Apuzzo and Michael S. Schmidt, many of the questions Mueller wants to ask President Trump are absurd. They are clearly a trap to establish a case for obstruction of justice or perjury. Virtually no one could answer these questions with any certainty of...
  • Newt Gingrich: Comey has written an anti-Trump novel that will be amazingly discredited

    My first reaction to fired FBI Director James Comey’s new book "A Higher Loyalty" is to demand that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein release the still-secret Comey memorandums describing his conversations with Donald Trump as president-elect and president. After seeing hundreds of pages of Comey’s self-serving version of reality, the American people deserve to see what he actually wrote at the time of these conversations. I suspect the memos will undermine a lot of Comey’s case. In fact, it is hard to understand why Rosenstein is keeping these memos hidden – unless it weakens the Deep State’s case against President...

    Imagine the frustration building in elite media offices across the country. Lately, the members of the elite media have been relentlessly bashing President Trump. The reality they have been promoting has been one in which the White House staff is in chaos; a hardline, supposedly dangerous right-wing hawk has been nominated to be national security adviser; and some of the most important news of the day centers around a woman with a lurid tale from more than a decade ago. Meanwhile, deeply nostalgic TV personalities, who have been nurtured on the true faith of demonstration liberalism, have been fondly describing...
  • Newt Gingrich: Republicans can win in the November elections -- Here’s how

    Fox News ^ | March 29, 2018 | Newt Gingrich
    After the Pennsylvania special election for a U.S. House seat earlier this month that ended with a Democratic victory, I warned that Republicans must start developing a countervailing wave to ensure Democrats do not take control of the House in the November elections. To do this, Republicans nationwide – even those in “safe” seats and those who are not up for re-election – must not get comfortable playing defense. All of them must be prepared to go on offense. This does not mean simply attacking Democrats. It means setting goals in Congress and aggressively fighting to achieve them.
  • Newt Gingrich: Trump, Republicans must wake up or Pelosi and Democrats will soon control the House

    03/16/2018 7:56:41 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 90 replies
    It is time for Republicans nationwide to wake up to the very real threat of a Democratic-controlled House of Representatives led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, the current House minority leader. This wake-up call is also for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Neither they, nor any other Republican, should underestimate how disastrous it would be for their policies and for the country to have a left-wing Democratic majority in the House. Under Speaker Pelosi, there would be two years of investigations, fights over spending (to reduce defense and increase liberal dependency programs), efforts to undo President Trump’s deregulation...
  • Newt Gingrich: Trump has just delivered two brilliant political surprises

    President Trump has once again surprised the national establishment. This week he announced his re-election campaign earlier than any president in history. Simultaneously, he announced Brad Parscale would be his campaign manager. Both these moves are a reminder of how intuitive and strategic Donald J. Trump is. These qualities are a big part of why he was elected to be our 45th president. Why are this week’s announcements so important? Because they express intent and demonstrate immediate implementation. First, President Trump is saying to any potential Republican challengers: “I will crush you.” The amount of money he will raise, the...

    The successful launch of SpaceX’s Falcon powerful new rocket Tuesday ... was a tremendous step toward reasserting American leadership in space. The Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket launched in the U.S. since the Apollo missions – and the most powerful commercial rocket ever made. It can carry nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 pounds) into orbit. This is more than double the payload of the next-biggest rocket currently in operation. For perspective, SpaceX says this is, “a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage, and fuel.” SpaceX owner Elon Musk also said the rocket system...

    There could be no greater contrast in leadership on the world stage and in interpreting reality than President Obama’s “lead from behind” model in Iran versus President Trump’s “lead from the front” model. When the Iranian people demonstrated against the nation’s dictatorship in 2009, President Obama was weak and quiet. He was so interested in getting a nuclear arms deal with the dictatorship that he did not want to irritate Iran’s leaders In all fairness, the Obama administration was an accurate reflection of the dominant academic elite theory of the world. In the view of the left, appeasement is always...

    Democrat Al Franken laughed about a homosexual being killed: Al Franken: “I just don’t like homosexuals… Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia.” Democrat Al Franken does not just have a history of abusing women and cracking rape jokes. For more context in 2005 Mike Adams at Frontpage discussed the murder Franken thought was so funny. For those who don’t get this “fair mean” joke, Franken is attacking Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Club, which is a humorous dramatic society – one that never invited Franken to join while he was at Harvard. So, naturally, when you...

    Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, and Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., have begun to examine potential replacements for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. in the event conservatives attempt to oust him from his leadership role, according to a report Wednesday. Meadows was a leading figure in the push to remove former Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, back in 2015. Shortly after this effort, Boehner stepped down.
  • Gingrich or Santorum as speaker? House conservatives plot mischief for the fall

    Washington Post ^ | 09/07/2017 | Robert Costa and Ashley Parker
    Several influential House conservatives are privately plotting ways to use the legislative calendar this fall to push their hard-line agenda — including quiet discussions about possibly mounting a leadership challenge to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan. The group has gone so far as to float the idea of recruiting former House speaker Newt Gingrich or former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum as potential replacements for Ryan (R-Wis.) should there be a rebellion. The Constitution does not require that an elected member of the House serve as speaker. While the chances that a non-House member could mount a credible threat to Ryan...

    The elite news media loves it when Republicans attack Republicans. The leftwing reporters, editors, producers, television personalities, and analysts all find it exciting to watch Republicans try to damage each other. If a moderate Republican attacks a traditional, more conservative Republican, the former is often lionized as a heroic figure for putting citizenship above partisanship.

    President Donald Trump's desicion to appoint Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as White House chief of staff on Friday will be a "game changer" and will allow the White House to "become more orderly and disciplined," Former Speaker Newt Gingrich. R-Ga., wrote in a Fox News Op-Ed. "I predict the White House will become more orderly and disciplined — with clear lines of authority, serious planning and strong teamwork," Gingrich wrote Friday evening. "The person who may benefit most from this change is President Trump. He has worked with many smart, successful people in his remarkable career, but he has...
