    One of the interesting aspects of any modern presidential campaign has been the lack of detailed policy positions from the candidates on NASA and space exploration. The reason for this can be illustrated by what happened to Newt Gingrich when he made an exception and proposed building a moon base when he ran for president in 2012. More of that anon.

    Buford Arning, a retired building-supply executive in Statesville, N.C., went to church each week until a pinched nerve made it hard for him to leave his house. He believes in living a faith-filled life. But he does not demand piety of his preferred presidential candidate, Donald J. Trump. “Am I a Bible toter that gets out and preaches on the side of the street and tries to convert everybody? No,” said Mr. Arning, 62, who calls himself an evangelical voter. He said he believed that Mr. Trump was “a Christian man,” and that was good enough. Mr. Trump may not...

    Newt Gingrich told Breitbart News that the country is in rebellion against the coastal power centers and that Donald Trump might be the candidate who can "kick down the doors" of the establishment. Former House speaker Gingrich weighed in on Trump's rise. "I think he represents a different era" in the same conservative movement, Gingrich said. "The system has become so incompetent and outrageously buracratic. The centers of power are so, so in New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, that the whole rest of the country is in rebellion.

The ideas were then extended through the development of state warfare culminating in the Napoleonic Wars.

The former speaker and presidential candidate had speculated in a tweet that citizens with concealed carry permits for guns would have stopped the deadly shooting at a Paris concert hall. Gingrich's tweet prompted France 24's Mark Owen to say he found capitalizing on crises to advance a political agenda to be shameful. "Newt Gingrich, shame on you," Owen said.

    The most bemused man in America must be former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. In response to a question at a campaign stop in New Hampshire, former Florida governor and current presidential candidate Jeb Bush pronounced Gingrichs idea of a moon base as pretty cool. The former speaker must be asking himself, where was that kind of support in 2012 when he first proposed building a moon base by 2020? Indeed, a number of recent developments have made the once ridiculed idea cool again.

    While official - and unofficial - Washington, DC is barely able to breathe given the turmoil in the Republican Conference of the U.S. House, it is useful to remember that we have been here before. Let me relay the story. It was December 19, 1998. I was in Bangkok, Thailand (which is part of the story) but more importantly the House was voting on the Articles of Impeachment against President Bill Clinton. November 1998 had marked the second midterm election of Bill Clinton's Presidency. It was widely expected that the GOP - already in the majority - would pick up...

Sundays endorsement from the citys second-largest newspaper that leans conservative comes two days before Floridas primary election in which Romney is favored to win. Despite potential areas of weakness from the former House speaker, the editorial said Gingrich is the best Republican candidate to take the fight to President Barack Obama. Sure, he can be grandiose. His personal life has been, to put it kindly, complicated....

    The White House has been examining a proposal by James Baker to launch a Middle East peace effort without Israel. The peace effort would begin with a U.S.-organized conference, dubbed Madrid-2, and contain such U.S. adversaries as Iran and Syria. Officials said Madrid-2 would be promoted as a forum to discuss Iraq's future, but actually focus on Arab demands for Israel to withdraw from territories captured in the 1967 war. They said Israel would not be invited to the conference. As Baker sees this, the conference would provide a unique opportunity for the United States to strike a deal without...

    A reference to Palestinians' "right of return" in the report issued by the high-level Iraq Study Group broke a diplomatic taboo which sparked immediate concern in Israel and surprise among Middle East policy experts. The reference was buried deep inside a 160-page report that urged US President George W. Bush to renew efforts to revive Israel-Palestinian peace talks as part of a region-wide bid to end the chaos in Iraq. "This report is worrisome for Israel particularly because, for the first time, it mentions the question of the 'right of return' for the Palestinian refugees of 1948," said a senior...

    HOUSTON The political operation of potential 2016 presidential candidate Ted Cruz continued to beef up Monday as a top aide to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich signed onto the senators team. Rick Tyler, Gingrichs longtime spokesman who served as a top strategist to a super PAC that supported Gingrichs 2012 presidential campaign, will join Cruzs campaign-in-waiting to serve as a senior communications adviser. I am honored to come on board with Sen. Cruz and join the effort to make D.C. listen to the American people, Tyler said in a statement. I believe he will emerge as the...

    First, Sarah Palin is one of us, not one of them. Second, the country needs a healer someone who can rise above the mass media's hate-fueled attacks while working to bring sanity back to government and ideological balance back to both major parties. Sarah Palin can do this: she's a deeply committed conservative who has consistently shown, and not just as governor and McCain's running mate, but throughout her personal and political life, both an ability to work with the other side and a willingness to listen to others. Third, Palin is electable whether she takes Scott Walker,...

    Newt absolutely unloads on Obama's 'insane' remarks at today's National Prayer Breakfast where he compared what's radical Islam is doing today to what Christianity did in the past. Gingrich says, "These comments today are just the tip of an iceberg of pro-radical Islamist bias which runs through this entire Administration" -- Listen

    Soon after becoming House Speaker in 2011, Republican John Boehner started running the traps on inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to a joint meeting of Congress. But when Barry Jackson, then Boehners chief-of-staff, checked with President Barack Obamas top advisers, Jackson said he was left waiting a month only to get no response. Ultimately the Netanyahu speech went ahead in May but soon after Jackson faced the opposite problem: the White House had promised South Koreas leadership an appearance before Congress, he said, without checking first with the speaker. None of these slights justify what seems like...

    If you're not familiar with the following website, you need to. These guys have systematically all of the data concerning the delegates and nomination process for the parties and how delegates are selected, what counts, and what doesn't count. I've reviewed the list and am currently working on an IA projection map of the caucus and potential vote but waiting until the straw poll when I can start filling in candidates. Yet, when I review the total states, I find it difficult to see how the Establishment loses if they are unopposed by other Establishment candidates. Red States for the...

    The United States has been at war with radical Islamist terrorism for at least 35 years, starting with the November 1979 Iranian seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and taking of 52 American hostages... For the next two decades, radical Islamist terrorism grew more powerful and more sophisticated... Congress should investigate: 1. The current strength and growth rate of radical Islamists around the world. We need a detailed sense of the total picture. The scale of the threat from this nihilistic global movement, I suspect, will be stunning. 2. The country-by-country danger. Americans simply dont realize how dire the...

    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,...
