    Newt Gingrich on Wednesday marveled at one of Donald Trump's biggest accomplishments in the 2016 race ó making Ted Cruz appear normal.

Look, Trump has been campaigning in a Republican primary with harsh language and has been routinely attacked by the elite media as much as they can. Reagan went through the same cycle. Do you know how many points Reagan was behind Carter in March? It was double digits, right? Twenty-five. Not just double digits. Twenty-five points. So if you had talked to me in March of 1980, you would have said, ďHow can I support this crazy right-winger who makes movies with chimpanzees and...

During Monday's episode of Fox & Friends, Gingrich took the hosts to task for giving Trump a massive platform to spread his views -- likely referring to the network's wall-to-wall coverage of his campaign as well as Fox & Friends' regularly scheduled Monday segments featuring Trump as a pundit, which ran from 2011 to 2015.

    Like it or not, House Speaker John Boehner is the most powerful Republican elected official in the country. As the organizer of the ďDonít Be Yellow: Dump Boehner Now!Ē campaign, my goal is simple: Persuade House Republicans that he must go for the following reasons: ēHe has consistently betrayed Republican voters since he assumed the speaker position. In 2010, GOP voters rose up in anger at Barack Obamaís policies and gave Republicans control of the House. What did Boehner do? Immediately he surrendered the power of the purse, funding every Obama initiative, including Obamacare. Same thing this year: In November,...

    Sen. Ted Cruzís ambitions are clear. Heís a frequent visitor to Iowa and New Hampshire. Heís building a campaign staff. But to make a serious White House bid takes serious money ó at least $20 million by the time the first ballots are cast in early 2016. And that could be a challenge. Although the Texas Republican is popular at conservative gatherings, Cruz has shown only modest success as a fundraiser. Like Ron Paul and Sarah Palin, he can probably count on showers of cash from enthusiastic legions of small-dollar donors, and thatís an important start. But many major GOP...

    Following President Barack Obamaís speech announcing his executive order on illegal immigration, CNN political commentator and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich unloaded on the President, likening his speech to statements made by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber and that those in the ďeliteĒ class ďreally underestimateĒ the disdain Americans have for unfortified borders. Responding on CNN in the minutes after it ended, Gingrich opined that it was wrong for the President to go against the incoming Congress as it had ďrepudiated his policies in the electionĒ a few weeks ago. Gingrich then slammed what viewers just heard as ďa...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich tells Newsmax TV that a Supreme Court decision on Friday to hear another legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act is "devastating to the president." "I have no ability to judge what the Supreme Court will do," Gingrich said, noting that Chief Justice John Roberts once cast the deciding vote to uphold President Barack Obama's signature health care overhaul. But Gingrich said the new challenge is based on making the Affordable Care Act comply with the actual text of the statute that Congress passed and that Obama signed ó and Gingrich said that in this...

    The casino magnate and big Gingrich booster in 2012 may have his eyes on a new candidate in 2016. Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam spent an astonishing $98 million trying to elect conservative candidates during the 2012 election cycle. The Adelsons threw more than a fifth of that total at Winning our Future, a super PAC supporting GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich. We all know how Gingrichís primary campaign against Mitt Romney turned out, but the Adelsonsí contributions kept Gingrichís campaign afloat far longer than the former House Speaker would otherwise have survived. With potential candidates...
