    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Pelosi announces Trump impeachment inquiry vote – Here's what I am on the lookout for nowSenator Lindsey Graham has created a new reality for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Graham has written a powerful resolution which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell joined in co-sponsoring. Together they have attracted 50 co-sponsors – which means with Vice President Pence supporting them they would win a vote to dismiss any phony impeachment from the House that failed to meet a key standard of fairness. The resolution: “calls on the House of Representatives, prior to proceeding any further with its impeachment...

    The newly rebellious senator has become an outspoken dissident in Trump’s Republican Party, just in time for the president’s impeachment trial..... Mitt Romney is leaning forward in his chair, his eyes flashing, his voice sharp. It’s a strange look for the 72-year-old senator, who typically affects a measured, somber tone when discussing Donald Trump’s various moral deficiencies. But after weeks of escalating combat with the president—over Ukraine, and China, and Syria, and impeachment—the gentleman from Utah suddenly appears ready to unload.
  • Newt Gingrich: Trump needs to tame anger at Democrats over impeachment

    NAGOYA, Japan — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who led the last impeachment of a president, said President Trump can help himself by taming his frustration over the Democrats’ partisan inquiry and staying focused on highlighting his economic achievements for middle-class voters. Mr. Gingrich points to the example of former President Bill Clinton, the man he helped impeach in 1998, as someone who successfully navigated that difficult path. “Go back and look at Clinton — he compartmentalized,” Mr. Gingrich said in an exclusive interview. “Clinton was very disciplined about saying, ‘I’m working on the American people’s problems, and I’m not...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Pelosi's rigged game far cry from truth-seeking impeachment inquiries into Nixon, ClintonIf you want proof that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are creating a rigged game that sets up a coup to destroy the president, simply look at the last two legitimate impeachment efforts — in 1973 and 1998. Both Democratic Judiciary Committee Chairman Peter Rodino in 1973 and Republican Judicial Committee Chairman Henry Hyde in 1998 set a standard for fairness and operated with a judicial temperament of seeking the truth rather than maximizing partisan advantage. In 1973, Rodino set the gold standard...

    Fox News ^ | September 20, 2019 | Newt Gingrich
    It has been amazing to watch the national media’s coverage of the 2020 congressional elections so far. Virtually all the coverage has contained the same message: Republicans are retiring in droves, and this must mean 2020 will be a tough election for the GOP. Headlines, such as CNN’s “Here's why members of the House GOP keep abandoning ship” and USA Today’s “More than a dozen Republicans are leaving Congress. Here are the lawmakers who aren't running again in 2020” are prefect examples of the national media narrative. The problem with this narrative is it’s misleading and incomplete. What the trivia-focused,...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Dem presidential candidates doing a great job showing voters why Trump should be reelectedRemember the exciting, unpredictable and entertaining 2015-16 Republican presidential debates? Who would candidate Donald Trump take down this week? How would he dominate media questioners yet again? Whether you were for Trump, appalled by him or just curious, each debate was worth watching. Trump was so different – and so cheerfully direct and aggressive – that people began to see the debates as a sort of reality TV (which is what they should be). Our country is better when more people want to...

    One of the great debates of the 2020 campaign will be whether the key date in defining America is 1619 or 1776. The left will assert that America is a terrible country and that its defining moment was the introduction of slavery. Most Americans will see that as a racist definition of history in its own right and will continue to believe in the exceptionalism created in 1776 by the Declaration of Independence and implemented in 1787 by the Constitution. This debate is being created by The New York Times’ determination to replace its failed crusade about President Trump and...

    Over the past two months, the world has seen the people of Hong Kong bravely stand up to the growing threat of totalitarianism. What began as a protest against a bill that would allow prisoners to be extradited to mainland China has evolved into a movement to demand that the Hong Kong government (largely now controlled by China’s Communist Party) adhere to the promises of freedom and autonomy it made when Hong Kong was returned to China in 1997. Protesters have flooded the streets since June – despite the threat of being arrested, smothered with tear gas, pelted with rubber...

    As I watched the Democratic presidential candidate debates this week, something struck me that I believe will prove important in 2020: The candidates have nothing they can defend and nothing tangible to attack. The American economy is in great shape. Unemployment remains incredibly low – historically low for African-Americans and Latinos, in fact. And despite clear hurdles, Republicans have been taking proactive steps to fix the biggest problems in health care – consistently the No. 1 issue on the minds of Americans. So the Democrats have been aggressively on offense and pulling from the radical left’s playbook. What they seem...

    Video at link. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday that President Trump was the big winner at Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate. "It was a really good night for Donald Trump. He could hardly have hoped for a better debate. You had a handful of rational moderates, [like] Congressman Delaney. Their soundbites are perfect and could replace half of the Trump ads next year because they come out and tell the truth. This stuff is crazy," said Gingrich, noting the far-left proposals from the candidates on immigration and health care. He said Sen. Bernie Sanders,...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 16, 2019
    President Trump's attack on left-wing congresswomen, including a jab that they should "go back" to their homelands, created a furor. But former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says it may be an example of Trump's strategic genius. "It is useful to remember Trump doesn't play tic-tac-toe. He plays chess, and he's very often setting up a much deeper fight than you might think, looking at the surface," Gingrich told the Washington Examiner. Trump's tweet was widely criticized as inaccurate and offensive, with three of four apparent targets actually born in the U.S. But Gingrich said Trump wanted to raise the profile...

    Cortez and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich engaged in a put-down battle over her recent visit to the US-Mexico border. “Profoundly vicious, cruel and dishonest,” Gingrich said of the freshman Dem from NYC in a Fox News op-ed. “When you despise American values … lying is perfectly natural.” “Ah yes, now Newt & the GOP are resorting to calling me a liar,” AOC tweeted Friday. “I’ll take it as a compliment. Thanks,” she wrote, pointing to climate scientists and #MeToo survivors who, she said, Republicans have also accused of lying.

    "The founders never envisioned a professional political class," said Rooney, in an appearance Saturday on Fox News. The proposal would set members of the House to three terms and senators to two terms. Presidents are limited under the 22nd Amendment to two terms, while Supreme Court justices enjoy lifetime appointments. "This is a much better way than having these entrenched politicians who are too aligned with special interests over a period of years. I would say 18 years is plenty of time to serve your country in," he said, referring to the total time someone could spend in Congress if...

    CNN ^ | January 4, 2019 | Jamie Ehrlich
    Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Republican Rep. Francis Rooney proposed a Constitutional amendment on Thursday that would impose term limits on members of both houses of Congress. The amendment, co-sponsored by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and David Perdue (R-Ga.), would restrict senators to two six-year terms and House members to three two-year terms. A similar amendment was proposed by Cruz in January of 2017. "For too long, members of Congress have abused their power and ignored the will of the American people," Cruz said. "Term limits on members of Congress offer a solution to the brokenness...

    Now-former Special Counsel Robert Mueller is trying to have it both ways. When Mueller told reporters Wednesday that “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” he overstepped his bounds as a prosecutor. Mueller was insinuating that President Trump has not been exonerated of wrongdoing, while refusing to explicitly declare the president guilty of any crime. As Alan Dershowitz noted in The Hill, FBI Director James Comey was “universally criticized” for attempting a similar political dance during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. At the time, Comey had said that there...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is confident that the tariffs imposed by POTUS Donald Trump on China, including the latest round of 25 percent levies on $200 billion worth of goods, is much more than Beijing will eventually be able to weather. During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Gingrich responded to a Twitter post by the president hinting that the Chinese government is “waiting” him out hoping that 2020 Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden wins the presidency next year and things can go back to ‘normal.’ “I think the Chinese are caught in...

    He’s called the “Green New Deal” a “sound framework” for confronting climate change. He’s called for abolishing the Electoral College and has endorsed the idea of single-payer health care. And he’s openly gay. But Pete Buttigieg is getting rare praise from some unlikely voices — conservatives. Right-leaning pundits and politicians have taken notice of Buttigieg’s rising popularity, an ascent that began in early March after the South Bend mayor’s widely heralded CNN town hall performance, which garnered a sprinkling of compliments from Republicans. In the time since, a number of conservatives have shown a growing interest in Buttigieg and at...

    "Investigative reporter Luke Rosiak is being hailed as “one of the smartest, most diligent reporters in Washington” (TUCKER CARLSON) and “a bulldog” (DANA LOESCH) for uncovering “what is possibly the largest scandal and coverup in the history of the United States House of Representatives” (NEWT GINGRICH). It’s like something out of a spy novel: In the heat of the 2016 election, an unvetted Pakistani national with a proclivity for blackmail gained access to the computer files of one in five Democrats in the House of Representatives. He and his family lifted data off the House network, stole the identity of...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Pelosi’s grip slips as Ocasio-Cortez and friends throw a party, leave the grandparents at homeHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and the old guard Democrats at large – are in a very difficult position. The radical young voters that Democrats have been courting for years have finally elected like-minded radical young representatives – and Pelosi, D-Calif., and her leadership team have no control over them. A big reason why, as I mentioned on “Hannity” this week, is that there is a wide generation gap between Democratic House leaders and freshmen Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New...
