    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...
  • Gingrich says Trump pardoning himself would be "arrogant statement of power"

    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...
  • 2016: If Hillary Is Indicted, President Clinton Could Pardon Herself and Congress Might be Helpless

    On Friday, just days before the election, reports are emerging that the FBI has re-opened the Hillary Clinton email investigation. “The FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” a letter from FBI Director James Comey reads. And while Comey didn’t indicate how long the investigation could take, it’s pretty safe to bet investigators won’t come to any kind of decision before November 8th. It may even take months for the FBI to wrap up round two of this. So what happens if Clinton is elected, takes office, and then finds her...

    PHOENIX — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday he does not think people should pressure U.S. Sen. John McCain to step down from office while he battles a deadly brain cancer. “John McCain is a fighter,” Gingrich told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Mac and Gaydos. “If you look what was done to him by the Vietnamese, when he was in that prison camp, you look at his toughness, how he responded, how he came back, I would never want to be the person to take hope away from John.” Gingrich continued, saying it would be “terrible…for people to decide...

    ... If Obama ran every decision past Jarrett, the decision to plant spies in the Trump campaign certainly was among the most important. Obama's legacy was important to Jarrett, perhaps even more important than to Obama himself. She had to preserve it and ensure that the fundamental transformation of America continued. If Hillary could not win, Trump must be destroyed. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich also finds it inconceivable that the spying operation was launched without Jarrett signing off on it: ... Former press secretary Ari Fleischer agrees that such an operation could have been authorized only with the full...

    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...

    The British government’s decision to allow two critically ill babies to die in two years is a natural reflection of the culture of death and the steady increase in totalitarian tendencies among Western governments. Last year, the British government ordered life support removed from Charlie Gard, ending his life when he was just 11 months old. Now, Alfie Evans – just 23 months old – has received what amounts to the same death sentence. On Monday, he was removed from life support by court order – against the wishes of his parents. Then something remarkable happened. The child confounded his...

    The American people should read the Rosenstein memo sent to Trump before he fired Comey. Newt Gingrich just announced today: “Let the country, through Sunday talk shows, deal with the memo. It’s devastating. It’s clear that if you got that memo and you’re the president, you would have fired Comey,” Gingrich said. Gingrich was referring to the three-page memo that Rosenstein wrote in May 2017 after Trump announced he had fired Comey, entitled “Restoring Public Confidence in the FBI.” Rosenstein wrote that he “cannot defend the Director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails, and I...

    It’s not just Hillary Clinton who can’t quit Russia. The whole Democratic Party keeps going back to 2016. In a move that reeks of desperation, the DNC filed a civil suit Friday against President Trump’s campaign, Russia and WikiLeaks, alleging a vast (right wing!) conspiracy to tip the election to Trump. The suit’s flamboyant charges made headlines, but that only served to obscure the real meaning. Namely, that top Dems are giving up their fantasies that special counsel Robert Mueller will deliver them from political purgatory by getting the goods on Trump. The trashy suit is their way of trying...

    Newt Gingrich came right out and said what a lot of people think: James Comey - former U.S. attorney, deputy attorney general, corporate attorney, hedge-funder and FBI director - wrote a self-serving book filled with lies and half truths and may well be a “pathological liar.” “I’m saying he taught himself a early age a series of self-serving emotions, which he uses … if you watch him for a couple of hours of this stuff, he uses it over and over,” Gingrich concluded. “This guy is almost a pathological liar.” Daily Caller Worth a view: Pathological liars may lie to...

    The Democratic National Committee's (DNC) filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against Trump campaign officials, the Russian government and WikiLeaks, alleging a widespread conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor. The suit claims that Trump campaign officials worked in tandem with the Russian government and its military spy agency to bring down Hillary Clinton by hacking into the computer networks of the DNC and spreading stolen material. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich responded by calling on the DNC to allow the FBI to look at the servers they claim were hacked. "The first test for the DNC should...

    Judging by the rhetoric coming out of Tehran, John Bolton’s appointment as America’s National Security Advisor is the worst thing that ever happened. The Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council labeled Bolton’s appointment “a matter of shame.”  The Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy declared,  "The use of hardline elements against the Islamic Republic of Iran shows that the Americans seek to exert more pressure on Iran.”First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri opined, “They (US officials) are wrong to assume that the Iranian nation will give in to their threats against the Islamic Republic.”  ...

    While he survived a brutal and controversial Senate primary in 2014, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, citing his failing health, is resigning effective April 1. A special election will be held to finish the remainder of his term that ends in 2020. If no one gets above 50 percent, a runoff will be held. For now, Gov. Phil Bryant will appoint an interim senator to fill the vacancy until the election. Cochran’s colleague, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MI), is up for re-election this year and is facing a challenge by state Sen. Chris McDaniel. McDaniel challenged Cochran in 2014 (via NPR): I...

    Fox News ^ | March 1, 2018 | Newt Gingrich
    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...

Nunes is already implying that there’s corruption at the DOJ….

    Pope Francis is expected to give the final blessing at the funeral Thursday of Cardinal Bernard Law, the former Boston archbishop who resigned in disgrace during the Catholic Church's sex-abuse scandal, prompting outrage from abuse survivors. Francis' prominent role in the ceremony has fueled the controversy over the decision to grant Law a full cardinal's funeral at St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. The story was made into a celebrated movie, Spotlight, and the scandal forced the Catholic church to rethink the way it dealt with child abuse in the church.

    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...
