    Newt Gingrich said Thursday that Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has better odds of becoming speaker of the House than the GOP's front-runner Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. During an event held by the Washington Post, Gingrich, himself a former speaker of the House, suggested that he thinks the Democrats will take the House. "I think the odds are 2 out of 3 she'll be speaker," he said of Pelosi, who is House minority leader. "And 1 out of 3 Kevin McCarthy will be," he continued. Democrats need to flip two dozens seats in the House during the Nov. 6 midterm elections...

    Our politics today were molded by the tumultuous period leading up to the 2000 election, when the nation split right down the middle over Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore in the closest presidential contest in modern history. Clinton, who campaigned as a centrist, entered the White House hobbled after taking only 43 percent of the popular vote in 1992’s three-way presidential race. That left him beholden to the powerful Democrat-majority Congress. “With a Democratic Congress and no help from the Republicans, Clinton governed like a liberal Democrat,” Kornacki said. In his first two years, the new president...

    The economy is roaring, the courts are turning right and trade wars are not producing defeats. As the president’s approval rating creeps up, is it all going right for Republicans? A strong economy with joblessness at its lowest rate for nearly half a century. A new trade deal with Canada and Mexico. Hopes of peace in the Korean peninsula. No major terrorist attacks on the homeland. A week that began with cheers at the White House for a new supreme court justice and ended with the release of an American pastor from jail in Turkey. An alien who landed in...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Here's a leader with a plan to genuinely control our southern border. He needs our supportWhen House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., introduced the Build the Wall, Enforce the Law Act he set the stage for a vital national debate on important questions. Does our safety matter? Does the safety of our children matter? Does the safety of our neighborhoods and communities matter? Every American should be grateful that McCarthy is boldly setting out a plan to genuinely control our southern border and provided the resources and organization needed. He has written a bill that he...

    In their vile attempts to derail the senate confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats may have overplayed their hand. This includes everything from the now discredited accusations of Julie Swetnick to the recent cartoon of Kavanaugh’s daughter. Everyone was so appalled by comedian Rachel Butera’s imitation (she nailed it, by the way) of Christine Ford’s testimony, but the cartoon making fun of Kavanaugh’s ten-year-old daughter was somehow okay. Their tactics went way beyond politics as usual. One after another, politicians and law enforcement officials have said they’ve never seen anything like this in their careers. And the American people have...

(Campaign photos) You’ve probably heard a lot about the supposed blue wave the political elite are predicting for the election cycle. I’m confident Republicans will keep control of the House and the Senate, but a different kind of blue wave is currently washing across several states. It’s a blue wave of liberal funding. A massive flow of money from liberal donors in California and New York is...

    Those who believe the elite left-wing “blue wave” theory for the 2018 elections should look at what happened in Texas on Tuesday. In a special election runoff, Republican Pete Flores successfully flipped Texas State Senate District 19, which borders Mexico and had been in Democratic control for 139 years. Flores, a political newcomer competing against a seasoned former Democratic congressman, won in a district that is 73 percent Hispanic and African American – despite virtually all political analysts’ expectations. I am studying this election for a future op-ed, but I have been told by many Texas Republicans that Flores was...

    Sometimes Caesar must act. Sometime tomorrow Ambassador Callista Gingrich should march into the Vatican Secretariat of State in Rome. Then demand the release of all documents related to now-disgraced Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. The former Archbishop of Washington, it’s widely known, molested teen boys and sexually preyed on seminarians. Gingrich should tell Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin that the Vatican has one week to answer. If the answer is no, or if they are reluctant to answer, she should give them one month to reconsider. Then inform them on that day, she and her staff will leave for the United...

    A few weeks ago, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) wrote an article for Vox explaining the movement’s goals – to end capitalism and radically change America. In normal times, the declarations of a fringe party and ideology in America would not merit much attention. However, these are not normal times. A new Gallup poll shows that 57 percent of Democrats have a favorable view of socialism – while only 47 percent view capitalism positively. This pattern has been building for a while. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont took socialism mainstream in the party during the 2016...

    Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stopped by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to weigh-in on Robert Mueller’s never-ending Russia investigation; saying the Attorney General needs to intervene immediately. “98 or 99 percent of what Mueller’s doing is not covered by Sessions’ recusal over the Russian campaign investigation. Sessions -if he did his job- could intervene tonight or tomorrow, it would be totally within his authority and he should,” said Newt. “The President should take every example of what we’re talking about and simply declassify it. I want to see every decision memo about Benghazi where the Obama team consciously decided...

    Early in his presidency, when Donald Trump said U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) would exceed 3 percent growth, the supposed experts in the mainstream media claimed such growth would most likely be impossible. In fact, the experts claimed unemployment would have to reach zero percent and immigration would have to double to meet such a high growth rate (despite the fact that 3.22 percent has been the average GDP growth rate over the last 71 years). Well, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce on Friday, “real gross domestic product increased at an annual rate of 4.1 percent in the...

    In San Francisco, immigrants who are in the country illegally are now eligible to register and vote in school board elections. Of course, this is clearly illegal under the California Constitution. Article II, Section 2 of the California Constitution says: “A United States citizen 18 years of age and resident in this State may vote.” However, the pro-illegal immigration, sanctuary state-supporting Democratic majority in the state Legislature has no interest in enforcing the law when it’s being ignored by fellow Democrats. After all, the long-range plans Democrats have for a ruling majority depend on continuous law- breaking to get enough...

    First, the very people who have been loudest in attacking President Trump about his performance at the Helsinki summit are the people who failed to protect America from Russian meddling in 2016. ..." Second, the Trump administration has been far tougher on Russia than President Obama ever dreamed of being. The Trump administration is taking real actions designed to weaken Russia and force Putin to change his aggressive behavior. The Trump administration has levied tough sanctions on Russia. Also, President Trump’s public lecture about Germany not buying natural gas from Russia was aimed at cutting Putin off from hard currency...

    Newt Gingrich on Monday offered rare, scalding criticism of President Trump, demanding that the president explain the comments he made during his controversial press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the conclusion of their talks in Helsinki. "President Trump must clarify his statements in Helsinki on our intelligence system and Putin," the former House speaker wrote on Twitter. "It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected—-immediately." Trump received widespread scorn on Monday after he said at the media availability that he has yet to see any compelling reason why the Kremlin would have interfered...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: GOP could win big in November thanks to Democrats’ radical, unrealistic immigration stanceRepublicans have the chance to secure a major victory and expand their 51-49 majority in the U.S. Senate in the November midterm elections – largely because Democrats are advocating radical, impractical and unpopular immigration positions. As more and more Democrats throw their support behind so-called sanctuary cities, abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and promoting open borders, more and more Americans are expressing their vehement opposition to these positions. Most recently, in their fervor over the child-detention issue, every Senate Democrat scrambled to...

    “Today, Russia ranks among the worst violators of religious freedom and human rights,” Ambassador Callista Gingrich said during a roundtable discussion on Ukraine held at the US embassy in Rome. “There is no sign that its persecution of religious minorities and foreign missionaries is coming to an end.” “Russia routinely conducts sham trials to persecute Ukrainians,” she explained. “Religious freedom also remains heavily constricted in areas of Ukraine under Russian occupation and control." The ambassador is married to former House of Representatives Speaker, Newt Gingrich, an adviser and ally of the president, who has repeatedly stressed there is no evidence...

    Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuck, leader of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church has emphasized the importance of dialogue and forgiveness between the parties at war for the future of Ukraine. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has cost more than 10,000 lives since 2014. "There is no official dialogue among the different Orthodox churches, and there is no official dialogue between Catholic churches and our Orthodox brothers,” Shevchuck said, adding that this is a cause for “regret.” Shevchuck made his remarks after a closed-door roundtable discussion on religious freedom with Vatican officials and diplomats at the U.S. embassy to the Holy...

Yet, the surprise over the sudden summit should not have come as a surprise at all. By now we should be used to President Trump surprising us. Consider his record over the last four years. Four years ago, in June 2014, almost no one would have dreamed Donald J. Trump would be a serious candidate for president. Then, nearly...

    Former House Speaker and Trump ally Newt Gingrich warned President Trump against pardoning himself should special counsel Robert Mueller pursue charges in the ongoing Russia investigation, telling "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday that it would be an "arrogant statement of power" if he did so. "I don't think he can pardon himself, that would lead to a reaction in the Congress that would be devastating," Gingrich said. Gingrich's comments come after Mr. Trump declared Monday that he has the "absolute right" to pardon himself, but added he had done nothing wrong. The president asserted his presidential power as the White...
