    Newt Gingrich, shown in a file photo, is the Hindu group's honorary chairman Associated Press There is only one Hindu in Congress and she is a Democrat. But as of Tuesday, there will be a Republican Hindu Coalition, comprised of Indian Americans looking to amplify their voice in U.S. politics. The group, which formally launches Tuesday evening, isn't aimed at bolstering the ranks of Hindus across the aisle from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D., Hawaii). Instead, the coalition is focused on advancing conservative policies important to the Republican Hindu community, including fiscal discipline, expanded trade, and forceful defense, said its founder...

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump is learning quickly to adjust on the campaign trail, says former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. "I think he's modulating. He's learning," Gingrich said Sunday on "Face the Nation" in reference to Trump meeting with the head of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. "The one thing I've always found to be true with Trump is, I think he learns faster than any other political figure I've known except Bill Clinton," Gingrich said. The Trump you see today won't be the same Trump you see a month from now, Gingrich said. He said Trump, Ben Carson and...

    Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie on Saturday compared tracking illegal immigrants in the United States to locating FedEx packages, even pledging to ask the company's founder and CEO to temporarily work with his administration to show immigration officials how to do it effectively. The comments, at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire, caused an uproar on social media, Mediate and CNN reports. "At any moment, FedEx can tell you where that package is," the New Jersey governor said. "It's on the truck. It's at the station. It's on the airplane. It's back in another station.

Its like a science fiction film, where you shoot at him and he gets bigger, Gingrich said. Youre dealing with somebody who is totally different from anybody in modern politics. Gingrich said if Donald Trumps poll numbers continue at 25 percent or higher, he will win the Republican nomination for president.

    "If and when Congress votes on a new immigration bill -- whatever the "triggers," timetables or other provisos -- the real issue to be decided will be the same as it has been from the beginning. That issue is whether the Republican Party, dazed from a daily pounding by the Washington press corps, will agree to commit political suicide by enfranchising 11 plus million illegal aliens on U.S. soil, the vast majority of whom will soon be casting Democratic ballots." So wrote the great M. Stanton Evans, who passed away on Tuesday. Having been at the forefront of the movement...

He further commented that weeks earlier when it became public that Obama would not be meeting with Netanyahu during his visit, immediate requests for tickets exceeded the house capacity by 2,500 seats. He added that, "Netanyahu's popularity among both sides of the isle was so great, that it took him much longer to make his way to the podium than it does Obama prior to...

    Like it or not, House Speaker John Boehner is the most powerful Republican elected official in the country. As the organizer of the Dont Be Yellow: Dump Boehner Now! campaign, my goal is simple: Persuade House Republicans that he must go for the following reasons: He has consistently betrayed Republican voters since he assumed the speaker position. In 2010, GOP voters rose up in anger at Barack Obamas 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,...

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 repudiated his policies in the election a few weeks ago. Gingrich then slammed what viewers just heard as a...

    President Barack Obama's policy on immigration isn't just another new government program, says former House Speaker Newt Gingrich it's a "new law, created by the executive without Constitutional authority." In the president's address, Gingrich writes, he described "what sounded like a reasonable plan to prioritize the deportation of felons, criminals, and gang members over the deportation of other people in the United States illegally." Gingrich says the White House actually announced its real policy in a memo from its Office of Legislative Affairs hours before Obama took to the podium Thursday night. That policy is a "17-point plan including...

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 and Gingrich said that in this...

Unfortunately for the President and the country, there were five major strategic flaws in his speech. These flaws are so profound that...

She appears to have had a family connection to Barack Obama's childhood mentor, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis. For the record, this "obscure" official technically...

Or the size of the next four -- Houston, Philadelphia, Phoenix and San Antonio -- put together. Thirty-eight U.S. states are home to fewer people than live under the corrections system in this country. There are about as many people behind bars as...

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 : Obamas Attack on Israel ===================================================== "The success of Hamas in closing Israeli airspace is a great victory for the resistance, and is the crown of Israels 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 historya 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."

    When White House press secretary Josh Earnest said this week that President Barack Obama had "substantially improved the tranquillity of the global community," many observers reacted with disbelief. When the President refused to go to the U.S.-Mexico border last week to see the crisis of young people flooding into the United States because "he's not interested in photo ops," lesser mortals noted he had played pool with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, dropped by a brewery to have a beer and shook hands with a man wearing a horse-head mask. When he went to Delaware on Thursday and opened with a...

    . July 16, 2014 Newt Gingrich : An Open Letter to Robert McDonald: Developing a 21st Century Veterans Service System ===================================================== Mr. McDonald, Congratulations on your nomination to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs. As a good citizen you have agreed to take on one of the most demanding and important jobs in Washington. As a veteran yourself you can appreciate how shaken veterans and their families are by the scandals and corruption that has been exposed throughout the Veterans Administration. I know you will agree that we owe our veterans the best care and we have failed to deliver....

    . July 11, 2014 Newt Gingrich : The Bad Neighbor Policy -- Playing Americans for Fools ===================================================== Guatemala and Mexico agreed this week to make it even easier for people to show up at the American border. That's right: EASIER. After all the public outcry against thousands of foreigners crossing our border, you might have thought the Mexican government would help stop the wave of people traversing Mexico to get to Texas. That would be a good neighbor policy. On Monday, however, the presidents of Guatemala and Mexico met to announce a new policy of making it easier and more...

    . 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...

    the Gallup numbers show that in 2006 the United States was one of the top countries in the world when it came to satisfaction with freedom. By 2013 it had dropped out of the top 25% of all countries. A country in which 4 out of 5 people believe their government is corrupt is a country teetering between a populist uprising and a collapse into cynicism, passivity, and fatalism. These results suggest we will either renew our commitment to the rule of law, the punishment of corruption and the insistence on honest self-government or we will cease to be America...

    . July 2, 2014 Newt Gingrich : A Sobering Report for Americas Birthday ===================================================== Americans are in a period of amazingly negative thinking about the state of our country. A recent Gallup analysis drove home how deep and how threatening the current mood is. Gallup asked Americans in early June how much confidence they had in our nation's institutions. The answer: not much. Only 30% had "a great deal" or "quite a lot of confidence" in the Supreme Court. Just 29% felt that way about the presidency. And an abysmal 7% had faith in the Congress. Think about what this...

    . 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...
