Fresh update on "gingrich" discussed on Jim Bohannon
"You can ask, you can ask Rita. She remembers. She was she was the producer back then. If Brittany griner used Twitter. And if we could use the Twitter files to expose the fact that maybe she's been tweeting in DMing her friends and Kamala Harris and Joe Biden, what do you think? Well, I mean, that's fine. But I guess I'm of the generation that I don't use Twitter. I don't use what social media my wife does. If I need to contact somebody on Facebook, I use her account, but I just, I'm not old. But one quick count. I had one quick comment if I may. At the time I was in prison, my two oldest kids, my daughter was a junior in college and my son was a freshman, and we're trying to figure out a strategy about how I'm going to get myself water there. And I said, well, I'm going to use talk radio. And he said, talk radio, nobody listens to talk radio. And I said, well, you know, it's you guys listen to Guns N' Roses. I understand that. But people who are politically involved, people who vote on this type of thing, a lot of them are very Ardent listeners to talk radio and it's a good way to get my situation air my situation in the media. And I think it was a good idea, Gil. Well, 241 days and our Mexican prison really improved my Spanish. Thank you, gracias Gilberto. I'm glad you're back. You're safe and you're well. Folks that's killing the Philippines. I appreciate a great call. Let us continue. It's got a David in San Francisco. Hey, David, you're on with rich valdes. Welcome. Oh, yeah. How are you rich? Yeah, I was interested in the Brittany griner incident too. And in the hour that you were talking about her, you made a mention of Paul Taylor in that what's the acronym he goes by merchant of death, the guy that did get exchanged for her, it's funny. Victor boot is who I was referring to Victor boot. Right, right. Yeah, he shared a client with Paul Manafort and Roger Stone. And that was Paul Taylor. I think you mentioned Paul Taylor in that hour. I didn't mention Paul Taylor. Sure, you did, yeah, you mentioned the list of clients dictators that he worked with. Oh no, that was the audio clip that the folks from the drug enforcement administration, they mentioned it from ten, 12 years ago. Well, that's Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. We're PR men for dictators for 40 years before Donald Trump. And if you look up the torturers lobby, there's a whole list of all of the different dictators that they worked with. And what was interesting about those guys and their PR, they suckered Newt Gingrich into allowing a Maoist an African Maoist, I think his name is Boko sessi sessi. They allowed him to speak before Congress and beg for money for his dictatorship. Or his coup, which became a dictatorship. And so they were so eloquent at scamming Republicans that they actually got $70 million sent to an African malice. Well, I wouldn't say it's scamming. I think this is what foreign agents and lobbyists do. They abdicate on behalf of their clients. But is there a point with Brittany griner somewhere in here? Well, yeah, it's in the bigger picture. California legalized medical marijuana 26 years ago. It was 1996 and the idea that I think Brittany griner is she 32 right now. So she was 6 years old when it was legalized in California. She's most of her life. She's known a medical marijuana to be legal. And so for her to take a remedy along inter luggage was dumb on her part to go into Russia, but for Putin and his oligarchs who are pretty much libertarians or whatever you would call an oligarch, making money as their
The Obsolete GOP Election Model With Newt Gingrich
"Speaker, can you speak a little bit to the fact that it seems as if Democrats were less worried about engaging in debates like Katie Hobbs or fetterman, but they're more interested in chasing ballots than actually convincing voters. Is it time for us to change the way we think about elections as well? Yeah, look, I think the Republican doctrine for elections is just wrong. It's obsolete. It doesn't fit the modern world. Let me start with something you said just before the break, by the way. And that is that. The win read numbers are much smaller than the democratic system. Part of that is because as much as 5 or 6 years behind in development, but part of it is that Google in particular refuses to deliver and I talked with Ron mcdaniel about this that Republican National Committee chair before the election. Routinely, the last four days of the month, Google manages to not deliver Republican emails. And so from a fundraising perspective, the largest single delivery system in the country was methodically biased against the win read and in favor of act blue. And that was a factor. The other big difference, you put your finger on exactly. And I'm trying to put together now sort of a list of things that we need to learn if we're not going to repeat this in 2024. Democrats focus on winning the election, Republicans focus on campaigning. Part of that, I think, is the way the consulting system works. Republican consultants make a lot of money out of placing TV ads. They have a big bias in favor of media, whether it's effective or not. Democrats start out with the idea that I don't care how the campaign goes. I want to know when it's over. Did I win the election? And so if you watch them, they're much more ruthlessly centered. They start they start collecting votes much earlier, which means they can tell you who on their basis already voted and who they need to focus on.
Newt Gingrich: 'We Are Setup for a Very Wild Period in the House'
"Are set up for, I think, a very wild period in the house, Kevin McCarthy, who I believe in as speaker is going to have a small group on the right that are going to be raising cane all the time. And it's going to be challenging for him in the Senate. I'm very supportive of the Herschel Walker. The difference between winning the 50th Senate seat and being at 49 is enormous at 50 year power sharing at 49 year in a minority and under summer rules, the difference in those two is enormous.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Unpacks the Midterms
"Joining us now is one of the smartest people in the country to help us unpack what happened on 11 8. The midterms, almost two weeks ago. It feels like it was two months ago. It's been a long long couple of weeks as we unpack all of this is the great Newt Gingrich, mister speaker, welcome back to the program. It's good to be with you. I'm sure about great. But it's still good to be with you, Charlie. Well, thank you, mister speaker. So obviously we're going to win back the House of Representatives, which is a positive Ron DeSantis one by double digits, and we want to Georgia and Texas, but I know you will agree that it was a little bit underwhelming in certain parts of the country. You look at fetterman, you look at some of these people that are going to be senators, remarkably beatable. What happened and what went wrong? Well, I think first of all, this was a tough thing to say, but I think the Republican policies are, I should say, the principles that the campaign consultants use are just wrong. Let me give you an example. A number of our candidates came out of the primaries virtually broke and for two or three months they weren't spending any money. Meanwhile, the Democrats were identifying and defining our candidates and the number of them never quite recovered. In some cases, and here I think Mitch McConnell was a major problem. He had a huge super PAC, but it believed in spending money late. Well, the problem with that is in a lot of states now, people vote so early that if you aren't shaping the election in August and September, you're really missing the whole first wave of voting. So that was a piece of it. The other problem is that McConnell in particular does not believe in having any kind of serious issues to create an agenda. I really liked what Kevin McCarthy did. I think if he had a mistake, it was not doing more of it, but his commitment to America was real. It's positive. You're going to see it play out in the house. And I think that probably they should have spent more time and money communicating it as we did with the contract back in 94.
Where's the Talent on Our Side? Joe and Victoria Weigh In
"So big issue we've discussed, where's the talent on our side? The big, big brains. And I don't want to I'm looking. You know, it's not just the last four years of Trump. I would say from the aughts onwards, we didn't have the gingrich's, the bakers. We didn't have the people who were, you know, the good Machiavelli's of the right inside the building. Did we not cultivate them? Did they all go off into the private sector? Give us explanations. Well, the bush people don't cultivate new talent. They're not interested in it. They don't care about it because it's all about them. It's a network. That's why when Jeb Bush ran in 2016 and that famous, okay, you can applaud now. That's because that was a sense of entitlement. And they surrounded themselves with the same players, the same tired old people who didn't understand what's changing in American politics. There are great talented people out there. We just haven't done a very good job of cultivating them. And again, I blame ronna mcdaniel. I believe the blame Rick Scott. There's all kinds of wonderful talented people. The guy from Wisconsin, who was the first chief of staff for president Trump. Ryan. Brian's priebus. What did they do to bring in great new brains? What they did? They went and got the old people from the Republican national quote to quote on exactly this issue, just to give it a little bit of a flavor a little bit of color. I think it was some rag Vanity Fair or something. Bannon gave an interview about the first four weeks in The White House, and he actually used this phrase when we needed 4000 positions filled. Presidential appointments. He said, I sat down with reince and we, quote, made a drug deal with the RNC to fill those positions. And it's really quite remarkable that we achieved what we did, given the fact that the old schlep of the skull and crossbones and all the good old boys filled those positions. They went and found every rhino they could, and president Trump had a rhino in charge.
Caller: The Value of a 'Moderate' Tone
"When I use the term moderate, I don't mean necessarily liberal on voting ideas, but I think modern in our language, being able to reach out to people and understand their perspective. Look, Newt Gingrich, I used to go to Washington a lot for the outdoor industry. And his staff and I had all these treat munchers, you know, with me, I was the only Republican about a 30 of the leaders in the street. They were so welcoming. And so nice and the speed where we come by and wave to everybody. So everybody, I mean, she loved animals. Even though, even though he might not agree to allow their agenda, he really a lot of those people walked out, they said, you know, you use a Republicans aren't so bad after all. I think there's just a tone and a way of being moderate in how we conduct ourselves that opens people's minds to see why the conservative agenda is what's best for our country. That is sort of. Mike
Will Trump Make Another Run in 2024?
"But ladies and gentlemen, I want to talk about president Donald Trump. He claims that he's going to come out. I would say he claims that sound like a negative start to the conversation. It's not to be claims. I believe that he's going to make an announcement he has reported that he would make a huge announcement at Mar-a-Lago. I think on the 16th of something like that, and he's going to have a big announcement. And I think he's going to announce that he's running for president, the president of the United States of America. However, there's a lot of people, and I want to hear y'all's comments. Especially if you don't believe you would vote for Trump over desantis. There's been a lot of rumbling, right? Newt Gingrich, I got the article here where he had come out and said that he thinks that Trump should reconsider running for president, making that announcement after what has happened in the midterms. Now, I don't fully agree, but in part, I think about it. Because I think that the turnout and the Toonami wasn't it wasn't apparent. And I think there's a few candidates. I'm not going to say their names. There's a few candidates that I don't think we're strong candidates that Donald Trump endorsed over other candidates that I believe were stronger. We can not forget that Donald Trump endorsed a guy other than Brian Kemp and Brian Kemp destroyed snagging. I mean, Stacey Abrams. He destroyed her. I mean, I mean, God, dang. He almost did is good as Ron DeSantis did in Florida. And so you see that that's a misstep that I don't know what he was thinking. The people of Georgia don't agree with what he was thinking. They obviously went for Kemp.
Dan Bongino: Maybe Not a Red Wave but Still a Red Success
"Folks we had not we did not win the house for 40 years up until the gingrich revolution of the Bill Clinton years We just flipped it Okay it's not by 40 seats It wasn't a tsunami I wouldn't even call it a red wave But I would call it a red success And I would strongly suggest you that calling it otherwise is just media spin and you're buying into the leftist narrative We now Republicans won the house and we will more than likely win the Senate too But he's walking around depressed like they got kicked in the Johnson or something What the hell We learned some lessons from this I did an entire show yesterday Thank you for the feedback by the way It's on podcast We want to check it out On how I hate to say it but it's just not bad enough yet Conditions in the country people Democrats and swing districts haven't been forced to pay a price high enough that they put the product back on the shelf They just happen folks
Newt Gingrich: GOP Could Gain 7 Senate Seats, 50 House Seats
"Boy Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House, he in an exclusive column this week in the epic times. He's predicting a big win, both in the U.S. Senate. And the house, a Newt Gingrich predicting that we could pick up three to 5 Senate seats, and 20 to 50 wide range there 20 to 50 U.S. House seats. I'm hoping that Newt Gingrich is once again right. He came up with his, with his predictions based on various poles, and with his own experience over the years, a long time, public official, who saw the Republicans gain control what was in 1994, I guess, when Newt Gingrich led a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Newt Gingrich Reacts to Tulsi Gabbard's Announcement
"Heard Tulsi Gabbard announcing today that she is leaving the Democrat party. Are you hearing from people in your communities? People you go to church with, people you work with. Have you heard from Democrats that have said, you know what? We're done. Yeah, we're not, you know what? We're not buying into all of this. This doesn't look like the party of JFK. And it's not. It's not. I know my dad was a southern Democrat back in the day. And the last time he voted for a Democrat was Jimmy Carter. And Jimmy Carter's administration convinced my father that something was really wrong with the Democrats. Well, you know what, Jimmy Carter's administration? It looks like Donald Trump's compared to what we got right now. That's how radicalized the Democrats have become. So look, Newt Gingrich, speaker newt, was on Fox earlier today, talking about this cut number 6. Oh, look, I think Charles is somebody who has always spoken her own mind. She's always been sort of an independent maverick. And I think when she ran for president, she realized how really isolated she was from the great majority of the Democratic Party, which is now, frankly, a pretty weird party. We said the same thing happened in a slightly different way in Philadelphia last week where the former deputy mayor a Democrat endorsed Doctor Oz for the U.S. Senate and said that federman is just so crazy on crime and so pro criminal. He couldn't be for him. So I think you're seeing this drift and we've certainly seen among Latinos a huge drift towards the Republican Party as they're driven away by the weirder policies of the Democratic Party.

What Does Charlie Make of the Herschel Walker Controversy?
"Nathan from Georgia is Charlie I love the show. I look to you for clarity, moral clarity, especially on political issues. I'm a little torn. It seems like the Herschel Walker campaign against him is working as a Christian. I don't know how I feel about all of it. I'll probably end up voting for Herschel Walker. Can you help me understand? Yes, okay. So first of all, we had Newt Gingrich on the program about this topic. And there's a couple dimensions to this story that I want to unpack. The first of which is let's kind of go to what we know. There was an allegation this week of which the evidence is very shaky. That says that Herschel Walker paid for an abortion for an individual I think about a decade ago. The evidence they have allegedly is the woman has receipts that she did actually get an abortion and then afterwards Herschel Walker sent a get well card allegedly with cash in the get well card. If I'm clumsy on the facts, please correct me. That's the best that I understand that. And so that's very weak evidence, by the way. And Herschel Walker vehemently denies it. And it's a serious allegation. I'm not going to say it's not serious. We're pro life. I think that if someone pays for an abortion, it should be taken lightly in any way whatsoever, but he denies the allegation and they need a lot more credibility than that. And okay, it's a Daily Beast dot com, Herschel Walker paid for girlfriend's abortion, Georgia Senate. The Daily Beast broke the story. Okay. It's a serious allegation, but he completely denies it. Okay. And so as if we learned nothing from Russia gate and Brett Kavanaugh and all these different sorts of things that we shouldn't first look at the facts and the circumstances and also the all out smear campaign. And if Herschel Walker did this very serious thing, if he did, is there any room for redemption or forgiveness or for clarifying? No, of course not. So that's one part of the story. And the story would have basically evaporated or disappeared from that kind of serious allegation almost overnight and leave it to the Democrats to go and find this woman who asked not to be identified at a privacy concerns, and that she and walker conceived a child while they were dating in 2009, he urged her to get an abortion, the woman the one said she had the abortion and that she was reimbursed for it via Herschel Walker. She supported these claims of the $575 receipt. And it get well card from walker and a bank deposit receipt that included an image of assigned $700 personal check from walker.
Flynn, Gingrich testimony sought in Georgia election probe
"Gingrich and Flynn testimony as being sought in the Georgia election probe The Georgia prosecutor investigating whether then president Donald Trump and others illegally tried to interfere in the 2020 election has filed paperwork seeking to compel testimony from a new batch of Trump allies They include former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich and former national security adviser Michael Flynn the petition for gingrich's testimony says he was involved in a plan to run television ads that repeated false claims about fraud in the 2020 election and that gingrich was involved in a plan to have fake electors signed certificates falsely stating that Trump had won the election The petition seeking Flynn's testimony says he had said Trump could take military capabilities and place them in swing states and basically rerun an election in each of those states I'm Lisa dwyer
Newt Gingrich and Charlie Discuss Herschel Walker
"Speaker, I'm going to ask you about something you mentioned in a state you know rather well, the state of Georgia with one of the most expensive Senate races in history, Raphael Warnock against Herschel Walker, an article came out alleging that Herschel Walker paid for an abortion. He denies those claims, emphatically denies them, and it has kind of turned into this entire media circus as Herschel is surging in the polls, raising a lot of money and Warnock is becoming increasingly desperate. How should we as conservatives view this race? And some conservatives are saying, I can no longer vote for Herschel Walker based on these accusations of which he denies. How should we look at this? Well, this is classic. This is exactly what happened to justice Kavanaugh. It's exactly what happened with Donald Trump and what we now know was a totally dishonest Russian hoax that never existed. It was never true. Yes. The FBI lied about it. The New York Times lied about it. The Washington Post lied about it. This is a pattern that goes all the way back to a judge bork when he was nominated for the Supreme Court. So let's be clear. You had an anonymous story in a publication, which then becomes an excuse for other publications which would never deal with an anonymous source to quote the story because the story is not anonymous. It was published. But the source of the stories anonymous, Herschel has been very clear. One that he did have problems at points in his life. He'd had a number of concussions as a football player. He went through the equivalent of PTSD. When he recovered, he, in fact, went around and gave over 400 speeches on military bases, helping people helping young people deal with their own challenges.
Why Are Democrats Outspending Us? Newt Gingrich Explains
"Of the, let's say, concerns our audience has that maybe you can help clarify is why is it them with all of the momentum, Democrats are outspending us so significantly? Is it because they've really become the party of the oligarchs? What's your take on that, mister speaker? Well, I think there are three big things underway. One, act blue was founded a years before win read. So they've had time to build a really large online donor base that's more than twice the size of the Republican donor base. That's right. Two, the Republicans, this has been one of the great revolutions of my lifetime. Republicans today overwhelmingly represent people who did not go to four year colleges. Two thirds of all Americans went to a vote tech school or a junior college or just went straight to work. They used to be FDR Democrats. They have now become Trump Republicans. They're also people who have been hit the hardest by inflation. So just the available cash, on the other hand, the Democrats represent the college professors, the trial lawyers, the Hollywood elites, the New York billionaires who sold out to China. And that collective group has tons of money and they're not affected. And then third, the immediate reaction to the Supreme Court decision on roe versus wade triggered on the left, a huge surge of donations. And I think that it's financial I should say, I think they understand that their entire effort to turn America into a weird country is going to go crashing and burning if they lose this fall. And so they see much greater threat than we do. I mean,

Mister speaker, Newt Gingrich is with us, mister speaker, welcome back to the program. It's great to be with you. It's always fun because you do such a great show. Well, thank you. I appreciate that. And love your commentary, especially recently. So mister speaker, it seems as if in the last couple of weeks things have really turned positive for Republicans going into the midterms. We're 34 days out. It seemed like the Democrats spending spree over the summer and they're kind of synthetic raising of their candidates. It's collapsing all around them. What's your diagnosis heading in November where we stand right now? Well, we're about where I thought we would be back in the spring. When you have this level of a cost of living crisis, you have the price of food going up 13 and a half percent in one year. You have the gasoline prices going back up. I paid $5 and 5 cents a gallon last Saturday. You have crime and all the big cities. You go to, for example, the race in Pennsylvania. Yes. Philadelphia just had its 1000th carjacking of the year, a record. And they still have three more months. People 70% of the people in Philadelphia say crime is the biggest problem they've got. Well, that really undermines the Democrats. So you look at those, then you look at immigration, the amount of fentanyl. You realize that a 100,000 Americans a year are dying of drug overdose. That's twice the deaths of the entire Vietnam War. And all these things are coming together, you know, really simple way. It ain't working. Big government socialism isn't working. Joe Biden isn't working. Chuck Schumer isn't working. Nancy Pelosi is in working. And I discovered yesterday. I was in Des Moines, Cindy axton, who is the democratic congresswoman from Des Moines. Was supposed to be voting in August. She signed a note saying that because of COVID, she couldn't come. She was actually a vacationing in Paris. When she was supposed to be voting. So all these different swirling things. And that leads me to believe, will probably be plus 20 to plus 50 in the house..

Newt Gingrich Defends Herschel Walker, A 'Recovered' Person
"Was Newt Gingrich last night on Sean Hannity's show talking about the Herschel Walker scandal. If it comes down to who's warning, just gone, because he's wrong on virtually everything Georgians believe in. And he knows that, which is why he's trying to drag this campaign down into the mud in the hopes that he can drown Herschel Walker in mud. You know, I talked to her show about this this morning and I've known her so good while. I think he's a remarkable person. I think he's the most important Senate candidate in the country because he'll do more to change the Senate just by the sheer presence by his confidence by his deep commitment to Christ. By the degree to which he is, you know, he's been through a long, tough period. He had a lot of concussions coming out of football. He suffered PTSD. He's given over 480 speeches on military bases around the world, teaching our young soldiers and sailors and airmen and marines that you can recover. You can have a better future. Now, you know, again, the story of redemption is one that's supposed to be part of the Christian story. We believe in redemption.
Newt Gingrich: Polls Show Big Gains for GOP in November
"What newt said last night. Well, you know, Sean, I do three free newsletters a week at gingrich research. I did one on the long-term structural analysis of the election. The two most successful models that use historic data predict both of them came in about the same number. They predict 44 to 46 seat gained by the Republicans in the House. I also just did one this last week, analyzing the polling numbers. Remember, the Democrats in places like California get such huge margins that if you see a generic ballot nationwide, that's let's say the most recent one was three or four points Republican. That means when you get out of California, the Republican generic advantage is enormous. And in fact, in the swing states, even The Washington Post last week reported the Republicans are ahead, something like 57 to 35 in the swing districts. What's your Senate prediction? Plus three to plus three to plus 7 on the Senate plus 20 to plus 50 in the house. Wow. I hope you're right, mister speaker. Thank you. And I hope he's right too, 'cause it's our only chance to get this country back
The Republican Leadership Has Come up With a 'Commitment to America'
"I want to comment on the House Republican leadership. This is McCarthy and Steve scalise, who's been on this podcast and Elise Stefanik of New York. And they have put forward one, say, belatedly, because this probably should have come a lot earlier, but nevertheless, it's coming in time for the midterms. Something called the commitment to America. Commitment to America. Now, if you have sense of perspective here, you'll recognize as a kind of a similarity to something that gingrich did. And the period leading up to the 1994 midterm election. Remember, Clinton was elected in 92. And this was an anti Clinton wave that the Republicans were able to ride brilliantly in gingrich was able to nationalize the midterm election, not something that is that easy to do with the contract with America. I would say looking back on it the contract with America was a mixed success and got some things accomplished. In fact, to some degree, it put welfare reform at the front of its agenda. It even got Clinton kicking and screaming to sign welfare reform and then later Clinton took credit for the effects of welfare reform, but it was the Republicans who made him do it, and they did it themselves. There were other things that the contract with America tried to do line item veto a constitutional amendment to balance the budget. And those things ultimately faded. They didn't work. But it was a, it was a brilliant maneuver, and of course gingrich was a marvelous articulator of it. And I think with that in mind, we have this new crew, which is basically McCarthy, who apparently thinks he's a little bit of the new gingrich. Now, unfortunately, McCarthy doesn't have the charisma of gingrich. He doesn't have the intellectual firepower gingrich who actually was an intellectual gingrich was a college professor before he got into politics. And with McCarthy, you know, I approached this with kind of a, well, I'm going to call it one sheer for the GOP plan. The plan itself is not bad.

"And I think this is the kind of thing we want to focus on. And you know, there's such big picture issues at stake. Your book, which came out a month or two ago, defeating big government socialism, saving America's future is so crucial. I finished it a week or two ago, and I was so grateful for your ability to put in a very, very clear terms what we're up against. This is what we're witnessing newt in this country is unlike anything any of us have ever seen before. I knew it would be bad. I didn't think it would be this bad. It's worse than I imagined. They are absolutely embracing tyranny, socialism, everything that the challenges American norms for many, many years, and it's almost like we're just watching it with our mouths hanging open. People are in a state of shock. I think it's hard for people to realize how dramatically things have changed in the last few years. I mean, if you go back to Barack Obama running for president in 2008, the scale of change, the speed of change on everything. I mean, if you look at the overt effort to create anti white racism and to create selection systems for colleges and for jobs that are both anti white and anti Asian, it's astonishing. And of course, you're seeing a tremendous reaction against it. I mean, the Hispanic community is deeply opposed to what they're seeing happening. They are deeply opposed to what's happening to their paycheck and their pocketbook. And they're deeply opposed to the liberal democratic policies that are putting murderers back on the street. So I think all of these things are coming together. And I think when you go state by state, we're beginning to pull ahead in a way that I find very encouraging. But we're going to have to fight all the way to election day because the propaganda media is going to be consistently against us. And they're going to combined with the social media giants and California. They're going to try to create an iron wall that blocks the American people from having the conversation that I think is important. But in the end, it doesn't work because people go to the grocery store. People go to the gas station. People watch the local news and see the latest murder array for carjacking. And the result is the American people are increasingly recognizing that big government socialism just doesn't work. And I think that that's a problem that the Democrats will not be able to overcome. I want to take you to Pennsylvania when we come back because this is such an important race. This race between Doctor Oz and John fetterman and what this is turning into holy cow. Newt Gingrich is, I guess, you got to get his book incidentally defeating big government socialism, saving America's future..

We're 53 days away from this midterm election, and I wanted to pick the brain of somebody I admire as much as anybody on the political scene, Newt Gingrich, of course, former Speaker of the House. I'm praying that Nancy Pelosi gets fired from her position to Speaker of the House come November the 8th, but we are living in such insane times I need clarity. I need a calming voice. I need Newt Gingrich who joins us right now. Mister speaker, you're like a lighthouse when there's a storm on a ragged ragged coast of May and Maine, I need a lighthouse. I need a lighthouse of clarity, some political wisdom. I need some optimism and I got to ask you and I want to start with Lindsey Graham deciding to try to advance federal legislation on abortion, some 53 days before the midterm election, what's your take on what senator Graham has said what he has done and the pushback that he's getting and certainly the Democrats seeming to delight in the timing of it all. Well, I think, frankly, that's not helpful because first of all, I think the states ought to be weighing in on this, making their decisions and deciding, which is where it was before the Supreme Court intervened 50 years ago. But second, I think what Lindsey is trying to do is offer a position, which is in fact the majority of American position. The Democrats position of partial birth abortion taxpayer abortion and abortion up through the 9th month is in fact about a 23% position and most Americans would regard that as extreme. And of course, the Democrats want to pin the Republicans as being for no abortion under any circumstance. And I think Lindsey was trying to send a signal that there is a middle ground in that it's the Republicans who are willing to be on the middle ground, not the Democrats. So I think that's his intent. But I think, frankly, anything which takes us away from talking about the economy, crime, illegal immigration, the right of parents to know what's going on in their children's school. Anything which diverts from those topics is not necessarily to our advantage because we're going to win big on those topics. I had a friend who said that the abortion debate is horribly complicated. And it is. There's no way around it. It's a difficult issue to have. And it certainly potentially drives women, I guess, into the Democrat voting roles, if women of any political ideology feel that what they see is a right is taken away. Of course, the Supreme Court said this Supreme Court said roe V wade was wrong. It was there's never been a constitutional right to an abortion. The states get to decide, and I'm just confused. I'm baffled by this, but I keep saying over and over again, don't be distracted. There's a lot of distractions going on in the Democrats want the distraction. Right. That's why I think we're far better off to the start with the crisis in the cost of living. The fact that this week's numbers were terrible, look, the Democrats won any topic, which gets us away from what I said a while ago, which is the cost of living crisis, including the cost of energy. The rising crime rate in big cities led by Democrats. And with that, the rising drug overdoses, the challenge of parents being allowed to know what's going on in their children's schools and the crisis of illegal immigration. So from my perspective, at any time we're talking about topics other than those, we're not gaining ground on the scale we could be. And that's why I would come back to those over and over again and basically not engage in the debates that Democrats would like this election to be about Donald Trump and about abortion. We would like this election to be about the totally failed big government socialist policies, which are bankrupting us at the grocery store, bankrupting us. When you watch when New Hampshire, for example, it goes out to buy heating oil in October, general Baltic is going to dramatically pull ahead of senator Hassan because people are going to be in sticker shock.

"That in anticipation of ratcheting up in this conflict to try to come to some understanding because neither nation can handle the economic fallout of this right now, particularly China. So how does the U.S. use that leverage? As a tension has been simmering for quite a while time, you know that. Seem to have been reinforced by what happened in Ukraine earlier this year, Tom. And how China seemed to be took the side of Russia against the wishes of the U.S. administration. There's no question about that. The linkage is there as well. But what I would go back to John is a change in rhetoric and you're going to reach back four or 5 and 6 years and as you mentioned earlier, John, this is also about the sea change in China. This is forget about the China of Newt Gingrich or Henry Kissinger. This isn't the China of early Obama. That's really well framed. I'm foreign policy on the international stage better than okay.

"This. I think social media is also helping us a lot where a lot of black and Hispanic voters otherwise would have been just kind of listening to propaganda radio or television, but they're exposed to new and exciting voices like Candace Owens or Brandon Tatum, where they're getting the other side of the story for the first time, maybe 20 or 30 years ago. It wouldn't have been as possible. And also, unfortunately, the dominance of Democrats destroying these cities. It's now 50 years, 60 years. They've had their turn, and there is that kind of narrative that is seeping in, such as look at Detroit before and after Democrat rule. I mean, in certain, you've seen those pictures where almost Nagasaki has done better post atomic bomb than Detroit under Democrat rule. And then finally, and I love your thoughts on this. I think Republicans are doing better at candidate selection and asking for the vote. It's almost like there's this new sense of confidence thanks to president Trump where we're going to go and ask for the vote, such candidates like Herschel Walker and others. What are your thoughts on all that? Well, I think first of all, I think you're right on and I think you put your finger on a very fascinating part of this. Kevin McCarthy set out in 2020 to recruit candidates and people thought the House Republicans would lose 25 seats. They gained 15. That's a swing of 40 from what the experts thought would happen. Well, the 15 they gained every single one of them was either a woman or a minority and in some cases, as with two Korean American women in Southern California, a woman and a minority. And McCarthy talks constantly about base broadening and he talks about this opportunity to expand the brand, not just to focus in a narrow way on the old base. All of this was made possible by two things. One was Trump's effectiveness in communicating and in delivering the fact is you look at the price of gasoline two 35, I think, when Trump left office, you look at the price of gasoline now, you look at the price of food when Trump left office, you look at the price of food now. You look at the border getting controlled under Trump. You look at the chaos and the border now. You look at the crime rate under Trump. And Trump, I think, by now, would have very aggressively gone after these George Soros elected district attorneys who are refusing to prosecute

"Can also watch us on Roku and fire stick Salem news channel. The antidote to the lying mainstream Welcome back to America first one on one with former congressman for the 7th district of Virginia, Dave brat. So okay, let's drill down on what you've been doing recently. So as I mentioned at the beginning, I played that cut from you because you invited speaker gingrich to this new business contract with America event at the museum of the Bible. Why did you hold that if you can share with our listeners, what was the take home and what are the chances given what we've seen lately Dave, the mama bears at the school board meetings, the reaction to insane things like the rittenhouse trial. Do we have a fertile ground now for these kinds of ideas to tell us about your recent event? Yeah, I mean, so there's always attention in trying to put all of reality down into ten propositions for a new business contract with America. New comes in newt incredibly aspirational. And so we framed it, we had 13 or 14 propositions. He came in and destroyed all of it. That first half an hour was the tough half an hour. Was it Dave? Right? It was a beautiful thing, 'cause I was like, going, wow, this guy is a genius. And he liked, you know, the rational propositions, but he said, look, he says, you got to first sell this thing, right? People got to enjoy the first sentence they hear. It's gotta be about why we're doing this to produce happiness for your family so that you can co here so that you can have a fruitful business so that we can have a happy society again. He said, and then in order to use this phrase that it was joyful for Joyce full persistent. So I'm the wrong person to sell this. But he said, one of his secret weapons when he was speaker is that whenever he was proposing something in the room, he would always do it joyously. Why? Because people just get ground down by. When you are happy about your ideas, sooner or later you're just going to win. If you go in there and just kind of get all pugilistic from the get go, it's a little bit harder. So it kind of seemed to work for him back in the 90s, right? Yeah. Yeah, I know. And I don't want to tell the secrets behind the scenes, but I'm sure the speaker could knock a couple heads together when he had to. Well, so that, you know, but he came in and he gave us the, you know, let's go over the median into the 60, 70% of people we need to form a coalition that's huge. And gave us great ideas. Then, you know, a few of us push back a little and said, hey, that's all super, but some folks in this room, it's existential, right? We got business people going out of business right now. And we're going to use your language, the framework, the moral framework. He said, put the first three propositions in a moral framework, so we did that. But we need to hear some demarcation lines of what is not acceptable going forward too. Adherence to the constitution and the rule of law freedom not canceling people. And so, you know, and he said all that. He included all that, but the way he did it was brilliant. And so we reformulated and came out shooting at around to a bunch of thought leaders and the first hundred people in a phonebook who we trust more than the swamp and getting their input and we'll come up with a great product and hopefully it helps shape things to come. Do you think them that America is ready? I mean, clearly after the disaster of COVID in the 44 million people made unemployed in the tens of thousands of businesses shuttered, we need a business contract with American, but what about a broader revisiting? I wished you for a 20 years younger. Isn't it time for a new contract with all Americans as well Dave? Yeah. Yeah, well, you know, eventually they'll come a time where this set of ideas gets into the freedom caucus and then hopefully spills into the conference. And then spills into leadership discussions and other people are working on contracts do at the same time. And so, but we absolutely have to have this. The left goes in lockstep, right? I mean, it's just the pressure they put on their people is just tremendous. And I don't really like that. I mean, you're supposed to represent your constituents. And so there should be some freedom, but within a guiding set of principles. And I think that's what you got to put down on paper is, hey, here's how our principles are demarcated from the opposing team who doesn't have a deep spiritual religious metaphysical grounding of any of these principles. So it's an easy sell. The irony is right too in one of the ultimate ironies of the last Virginia election is after all this illegal immigration and everything. The greatest irony is with the Republicans won the Hispanic vote. Yeah. Largely because of the Catholic work ethic and spirituality. They share with conservatives. And so it's just, you know, we still believe in the rule of law. We want to have a defined border, but all of the folks in Central America out there all made an image of God. There's no debate on that. It's just we want to have order and the rule of law in our society. And, you know, we'll have an orderly way of welcoming our brothers and sisters.

"We're back one on one. This is America first with me some action walker and Newt Gingrich. What was it you said at that event at the museum, you said that when you were speaking or there was a certain year where you ran candidates, the Republican candidates ran canton the republic party ran candidates everywhere bar bar three or four seats, correct? In 1994, we broke with the tradition of trying to be clever. And we ran candidates in 432 congressional districts. Wow. We beat chairman ruston of the ways and means committee in downtown Chicago. We beat speaker fully and spoken in Washington. And we beat the Jack Brooks, the chairman judiciary committee in the Houston suburbs, no technical expert would have said we could do that. And that's why we ran everybody, because we didn't know who was going to win. But we knew that if we got a tidal wave that a lot of people would come in if you had people on the ballot. And I would say the same thing this coming year that this could be a magic year where there really is a gigantic tsunami. And to use a Cold War phrase, what is the correlation of forces between the new America first, a mega post Tea Party type of Republican and The Old Guard, the bana Mitch McConnell Bill crystal is the new populist conservatism winning right now. Yeah, I would say it's probably 70 30 or 80 20. You know, and again, when you have these kind of profound upheavals, you're going to have remnants of the old order. And that's just natural. And most of those remnants in the end are going to go along with you. And a few of them are going to leave and join the other party. But I think you're seeing a nationwide rebellion against obsolete bureaucratic government. And I think you're seeing a nationwide rebellion against big government socialism. And I think you're seeing a nationwide rebellion against radical woke ism and all those. And then frankly the great problem for the Democrats, which was captured dialog perfectly by Ted Cruz, who said that Biden's problem is that he combines the incompetence of Jimmy Carter, theoreticals and George McGovern. And I think that's pretty accurate. And so the best theme next year may be, this isn't working. I mean, you may be able to build the biggest possible coalition around the simple question do you think this is working? Yeah, fabulous. Well, I am saddened that we have run out of time. I'm also saddened that America only has one new gingrich, but here's the good news. You can listen to his podcast. You can follow him, got his website, order his book right now beyond Biden..
"gingrich" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"Com studios. This is America first with Sebastian gorka. Welcome back to America first with me, Sebastian gorka and speak a gingrich. When I joined The White House when I got my clearances, I'd come in to deal with counter terrorism, things like the ISIS defeat ISIS plan. But I realized very soon that there's only one strategic level peer threat we face, and that is China. I know you approve of what president Trump did during his first four years. What would the next Republican administration have to do with this, the largest communist regime in the world? So China number one, secondly, internally. And this returns to the question of election integrity. Big tech. When we see a president with 90 million followers being just memory hold on Twitter, when we see Mark Zuckerberg dropped $400 million to privatize aspects of the last election, this clearly is a threat to the integrity of the polity that is the United States. So the next administration, the GOP writ large when it comes to the external threat of China and the internal threat of big tech, what would you say to president Trump? Well, I'd say, first of all, the text is easier of the two. Simply make them comment carriers and make it a ability to sue for triple damages. And you'll overnight see them change their behavior. But that's going to be a big fight, but there's no there's no excuse when you have a system like Twitter, which knocks off a person who got 73 million votes. Knocks off the oldest and fourth largest newspaper in America, the New York Post founded by Alexander Hamilton. But allows the Taliban spokesperson to stay on. You know the system is just plain sick. So I think we need to have I don't want government involved, but I think we need to create an opportunity for individuals and companies to protect themselves in court. And if you could sue for triple damages, I mean, the New York Post alone would have gotten a huge amount of money out of the way they were treated in 2020. You mean with regards to the hunter by the laptop story being censored? I mean, I mean, they basically took the New York Post off of Twitter and off of Facebook for the last two and a half weeks of the campaign. Well, that clearly had a demonstrable economic damage attached to it. And if they could have sued for triple damages, which you can do under some kind of some circumstances, all of a sudden, those big companies would have been a lot more cautious about that. Plus the act of suing gives you the right to discovery and you can now start finding out what their internal memos were and how they were doing things. And I think they would do almost anything to avoid that. Second in terms of China, I think the first thing we have to do is benchmark over the next 20 years. What will being stronger and more capable than China require? And when we benchmark, I think the reason I say it to benchmark is I think there are a lot of things people don't think about that go into our ability to successfully compete with China. I think the biggest single weakness actually is our education system. When you have 5 schools in Baltimore, in which not a single child has passed the state exam. You know, first of all, that you are crippling the future of these children. You know, second that you can't possibly compete with China if you have a workforce that can't read can't write and can't do math. So I think you would discover it's more than just a military problem. It's also large chunks of modernizing the culture and modernizing the society. And if we don't do it, I think we face a very real risk of losing to China and ending up in a situation where we literally will lose our freedom. And to all those out, there are 3 million lessness plus everybody else who's watching on the video stream, you can do your part. Start by not buying and Chinese goods.

"The whole truth, nothing but the truth. That's doctor G's specialty. America first. We're back one on one. This is America first with me Sebastian gorka and Newt Gingrich. Speak again, which let's talk about my former boss the 45th president United States. To you, what did his victory in 2016 mean? I find it amusing that as an immigrant to this nation, I have to remind my fellow Americans that it was the first time in our republic's history that we elected a non politician or a non retired military officer to the highest post in the land. How much for you did he change American politics inexorably? Well, I think if you look at Glenn young Ken's victory, you see an example of it. I mean, young gun campaigned on lowering taxes, less regulation, more jobs. He campaigned on taking on the culture war. Things that I think certainly on the culture war front the traditional Republicans would never have touched. Trump, I think I thought it was an extraordinarily important victory because I always tell people it's not that Trump is a great conservative. I don't think he sat around reading Bill Buckley and trying to understand theoretical conservatism. But Trump was the most effective anti liberal. I've ever seen. He just applied common sense. And did any act that he did things all day every day, and he was steadily methodically taking apart the left's world, which is why they hated him. And why they rigged the election and spent so much time for some literally from before his election. I mean, the first article in The Washington Post on impeachment is like April of 2016. And the day that he is being inaugurated, there's an article in the post on impeachment. And the day after his inauguration, there is a huge crowd and Madonna talks about how she envisions The White House getting blown up as a positive experience. And it was an unending four year war in part because Trump is a genuine threat. He's the first time I think since Andrew Jackson that you had a genuine threat to the establishment that potentially capable of profoundly shifting the country in ways that would be unthinkable for a normal politician. No, I couldn't agree more. However, he did face into impeachments and members of his administration of the highest level trying to undermine him. So let me ask you as somebody who's been in American politics as a leader for decades, are we doing enough organically as a movement to build that bench? I was a deputy assistant to the president. I found people at my rank in The White House who hated their boss weren't forced to be a political appointee. Are we developing enough people who will actually cleave to the vision of the next man elected into The White House as a Republican? Are you concerned? Well, I'm concerned, but I think it can be done. Part of the difference I try to remind people is that Trump came out of nowhere in 2015 and beat 15 other people for the nomination and turned around and then beat Hillary Clinton for the general election. And had practically no time to think about transition and taking over the government. Ronald Reagan gave his first great national speech in October of 1964, ran for governor in 1966, served 8 years as governor two terms ran three times for president. And by the time he was sworn in in 1981, he had literally had 16 years to develop a farm team to develop a transition plan to work with the heritage foundation, which produced a book called mandate for change, in which 250 experts wrote about how they would fix the U.S. government and basically he hired almost all 250 and put them in the positions. They just written about. So there was a power in a momentum to Reagan. I think now that if we start sometime in the spring of 2000 24, once we have a nominee, we will be able to develop the kind of in depth analysis and the kind of in depth planning that will allow us to have the right kind of test. I mean, there's no question that a large number of the people and key positions actively undermine Trump and dislike Trump they wanted the job, but they didn't want the responsibility. And I think we have to have a much more rigorous personnel system next time. But I think that's the nature of these kinds of movements. When somebody emerges out of nowhere, you have a limited amount of things you can get done. And he did a pretty good job of focusing on the really big ones. But in the process, he still had far too many people who deeply disliked him and who were prepared to undermine his administration. We have two years to work on it, but we have to start soon.

"What a change from 32nd attack ads. What a change from the usual lack of teamwork and lack of specificity. But instead, we've had the usual carping the usual complaining, the usual negativism from an all too cynical Washington press corps, which attacks us for term limits for balanced budget amendment. One columnist called our contract in airborne. Now I recognize sadly that the worst impress car is all too often the pretorian guard of the left. But. It tells you something. It tells you something about how out of touch they are with the American people. That every item in our contract is supported by 60% or more of the American people. Some of the items are supported as much as 80% of the American people. And outside Washington, this is a contract with Americans for America. The contract with Americans for America. What a glorious reminder of what is possible even in the swamp. That clip from a sunny September day in 1994, of course, with former Speaker of the House, new gingrich tells us that yes, there may be monsters in the fetid fetid swamp that is Washington, D.C., but they can be slain. I'm so honored. Delighted to have with us, the man I deem to be. The greatest political thinker and strategic mind in American politics today speaker Newt Gingrich welcome to America first one on one. Well, thank you very much and with that kind of an overwhelming introduction. How could I do anything with be happy to be with you? Well, we don't even need we shouldn't need to introduce you. I have this short bio that's on the back of your new book beyond Biden. I'll just mention one thing author of 41 books that enough said right there. I heard you speak just a few days ago at the museum of the Bible here in Washington, D.C. an amazing institution, where some great people from Liberty University and elsewhere, Doug the groot and the former Republican congressman Dave brat had an idea for a new contract with America like the one you penned this time for the business interests that are so stymied by this new administration. And let's start with what you said during that invigorating speech. You talked about the need for a positive attitude. The cheery attitude taught us about how the concept of the happy warrior. So embodied by Ronald Reagan is all the more important now in a post COVID age and with the trillions of dollars we see being wasted on Capitol Hill. I think one of my favorite terms is cheerful persistence. I think anything big at thanks persistence, but if you're cheerful, you are dramatically more likely to have people helping you get there. And I think that the objective fact is that 330 million free people, each endowed by their creator with the right to pursue happiness creates such momentum of creativity and excitement and enthusiasm and energy that despite the best efforts of the totalitarians on the left and the big government socialists and the woke radicals that in the end of free people went out. And, you know, I'll just give you one example. Elon Musk who is a South African born of Canadian descent graduate of American universities who help found PayPal, which is the base of his fortune. Created the SpaceX and went out and applied modern technology modern techniques unlike all the big space companies that are really industrial era of dinosaurs, he went out and began to modernize getting into space. Both by having rockets that were returned to earth and are reusable and also because he's building a factory that will produce a hundred rockets a month. And a system where that's unprecedented. Nobody's ever tried to do this. Well, the result is going to be. We're going to be able to go from New York to Tokyo in about two hours. We're going to be able to have a normal everyday people go to the moon and Mars into the asteroids. And next year, Elon by himself through SpaceX will launch more weight into space than the entire Chinese space program. And that's typical of what begins to happen. You arouse people into whatever they love most. They go out and they work 60 70 80 hours a week. Big things come right through. So I am an optimist. And when I wrote beyond Biden, it was to say to people, don't get mired down in the mess of a totally hopeless president and even more hopeless vice president and totally out of touch House and Senate Democrats, rather, they're going to destroy themselves. And when they get done, we need to have a positive program, which is why for the first time since 1994, I actually favor a contract with America, both in 2022 and in 2024 because I think that's what we need in order to be able to go out and do what's necessary for the country. You use the word socialist and you were very unabashed by what the Democrat party has become in. Your speech at the museum of the Bible as the child of those who escaped a communist dictatorship whose father was arrested tortured and imprisoned by the secret police. I've always been leery of and made fun of my fellow Americans when they used the word socialist or communist events happening here in America. But I don't do that anymore. I look at the Green New Deal. I look at the build back better. I look at the open borders. And I'm I've arrived at a point where I don't think these words are hyperbole anymore. This really talk to us comparatively the 1990s and today, what has happened to the Democrat party speaker gingrich? Well, I think it's very clear that the almost like the Bolshevik takeover from kerensky in the second Russian Revolution that you've had a hard left, partially, I think, because of the repudiation of Hillary Clinton and the rise of Bernie Sanders, who is a genuine avowed open socialist. I mean to describe Sanders as a socialist is not to defame him as what the word he uses. Yes. And second, I think you have great disappointment in the Clinton presidency on the left and disappointment in the Obama presidency. The hard left wants to change America into a radically different country. And they were tired of dealing with people who kept compromising. And they and so they somehow managed to drive Biden into being the vehicle for genuine deep radicalism. I point out to people when Sanders brought forth a $3 trillion bill in August, there was not a single moderate Democrat in the house of the Senate. Every single Democrat in both the House and Senate voted for Sanders, big government socialist Bill. So if I say to somebody, you clearly a big government socialist because on this date and the congressional record, it says you voted for this. That's not attacking them. That's simply reporting factually what they did. And I think you have to recognize these people have become very anti free enterprise, very anti small business. Very much in favor of big government, willing to use the power of the state to coerce people into things they don't believe in. And these are all classic examples of what you get when you have socialism implemented. I mean, socialism as an idea is one thing. Socialism is big government is extraordinarily dangerous. And inevitably, this is a point higher made in the road to serfdom. In a sense the point that Orwell made both in 1984 and an animal farm, you know that there is this underlying drive because in order to make sure you do what they want, they have to constantly expand power, which is why you ended up with this insanity of the FBI looking at parents who go to school board meetings..
"gingrich" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Show with us today. He's a legend of the conservative movement and one of the wisest smartest people I think in the entire country. Speaker gingrich, who has a new book out that I encourage everyone to purchase beyond Biden is the book rebuilding the America we love mister speaker. Welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Tell us a little bit about this book. But first of all, it's always going to be with you and you do an amazing show. When I sat down and tried to decide on my next book, I decided not to do an anti Biden book, which obviously would have been pretty popular. At least some of our folks. Because I thought Biden himself would prove to be sufficiently anti Biden, and that's exactly what's been happening. But I always concerned about the country. One of the things that when Republicans get back in charge, they should focus on because it's not enough to just be anti. We have a real competitor with China, which is I think a genuine danger to eliminating our freedom and our independence. We have great challenges in our inner cities both from crime, and in education. We have a huge challenge on the border with illegal immigration. You're down the list. And so I wanted to write a book that was beyond just being anti Biden. And that really talked about, this is the kind of stuff we're going to have to do. We got a roller seas up. If we're going to be successful as a country. And I absolutely think we have to think in terms of modernizing America. We have very old bureaucracies that are based on the industrial era. They don't work very well. And that includes The Pentagon, which we just saw in Afghanistan. It includes NASA, which has had a particularly large project that is absurdly overpriced to them actually that are extraordinary over budget and over time. It includes all the major bureaucracies in Washington. And from them, parallel bureaucracies at the state and local level. So we have a lot to do. And beyond Biden is my effort to be in the communicate how big the changes have

"And so people are going to go out there for that Turkey dinner. And in fact, the government said it will be the most expensive Thanksgiving dinner in history. Newt Gingrich is with us his new book is out this week beyond Biden rebuilding the America we love. It is out. You need to get your hands on it. I also, I want to go back to what you said about the broken promises and you use the word astonishing. It's astonishing when you just put a list together of the things that President Biden has promised, and those broken promises. There would be remember he said there would be no vaccine mandate. Now, of course, companies are struggling with an inevitable vaccine mandate. As you say, gas prices, food prices, he said he would unite us. You know, we would be united, newt. We're more divided than ever. Biden reminds me of the character and being there. Who is trying to Gardner? Yeah. And everybody projects unto him that he must really be wise in those same things like. So what do you think the market will do in the spring? And he says, well, plutonium come up in the spring. They go, oh my God. That is so meaningful. And that's sort of Biden. I mean, sadness floating through. He's floating through his presidency as though nothing that's happening is real. And you find out this latest, my favorite insanity is the idea that we're going to get $450,000 to illegal immigrants because they had psychological tension and I keep trying to imagine the table, and which people were sitting around going, you know, what would it be a really good thing to do is one of them said, I know, why don't we give $450,000 to every illegal immigrant who has felt psychological tension? Now, you have to ask yourself, how do you find a person who thinks like that? And how could the rest of the table not have thrown things at them for a gross stupidity or not? That's really a good idea. I think giving them are you sure 150,000 is enough? Maybe we should give them more. And you have to wonder that these people are so out of touch with reality that they would be a bad Walt Disney movie. I mean governor Ron DeSantis this week called this an incomprehensibly stupid idea, and yet and when I first read about it, I thought this was something that sat tired. There's no way The White House is seriously considering this, but of course it was confirmed that they are. And yet, you got to explain this to me. I get the bias of the media. I get the mainstream media. I call them the beast. I call academia trying to indoctrinate our kids. I call the press, the media, the beast. And the beast is wounded right now because they don't really know which end is up. But how does even conservative media Fox News one America news newsmax online up and down, how do you not lose your mind for 24 7 over a plan that would take taxpayer dollars and as you say, pay $450,000 per person up to a million of family or more? You know what $450,000 would mean to a hardworking farmer in middle of rural America and yet it seemed to me that that story has gotten scant coverage. Am I wrong here? I just seem like I'm waiting for the roof to come off on this. I think you have to think of the Biden media rather than the news media. Right. I'll tell you, I was shocked. On Sunday, when chuck Todd, on meet the press, I mean a man who clearly is totally in the tank for the Democrats. And he used to be a democratic operative. Would he actually showed the NBC News poll, and did it as a graphic which we have cheerfully sent out, showing that on 6 or 7 major issues, Republicans now have a 20 point plus advantage as to who can solve it. Now, for chuck Todd to show that had to have been a moment of agony that, you know, he probably went home that day and drank an entire 5th of bourbon, just to just to cope with the degree to which he had betrayed the true faith. But what you're watching is these people are totally them. It's not that they're the news media. They're the Biden media, or they're the big government socialist media, but they have no interest in covering anything which would harm their side, but the problem they got in a good example when I were kidding about, if the president of the United States falls asleep in public at a conference, even the most jaded pro Biden reporter has a little bit of a challenge. How do you not, how do you not cover the fact that now, again, I think if he was listening to a John Kerry speech, I give him a certain credit. I don't blame him. On the other hand, he's the guy who appointed Kerry who's got to be the most pompous, self involved and end fundamentally stupid person to occupy a major position in recent government. I mean, it carries just a marvel to watch. Well, there's a lot of them that he's surrounded himself with. And I'm encouraged and I'm pretty optimistic about the massive pushback. I've been doing this a lot of years, not as many as you. I've been behind a microphone for the better part of four decades. I've never seen the kind of pushback that ordinary Americans are giving to an agenda that is so radical and so wildly out of touch. And I'm encouraged by that, aren't you? Well, I am in our polling data free market capitalism gets 59% in big government socialism gets 16. And when you realize that the people who currently dominate Washington have one 6th of the country behind them. One 6th. You begin to realize how far out on a limb they are. And that's frankly why when I sat down to write beyond Biden, I deliberately did not write an anti Biden book, because these guys are so bad. That they're going to make their own case. Yeah. And what we have to worry about is how do we compete with China? How do we fix our institutions that are really broken? And how do we get back to being the most dynamic, most exciting country in the world? That's why beyond Biden focuses on those kinds of things. But I watch what's happening and I have to confess, you know, I've been trying to come up with illustrations, for example, the reason the best way to understand how the radical left deals with violent crime and deals with terrorism and deals with the threats of violence is to imagine that they saw The Lion King as a documentary. And they actually believe that lions and zebras sing and dance together and find happiness together. And therefore they are always shocked when you release murderers and rapists or you release terrorists that they actually go back to being murderers and rapists and terrorists. And it's kind of trying to figure out Reagan once said that it wasn't what liberals didn't know the scaredy. It's what they knew that wasn't true. And I've been trying to go stage further because what's really amazing to me is they don't seem able to learn anything. So if the border is a total disaster, they don't notice it. They don't think of it as a disaster, although I must say, I think Ted Cruz had a brilliant idea, which I'm trying to get House and Senate Republicans to actually introduces a bill, which is that proportionately as many illegal immigrants have to be sent to the highest income zip codes like Nantucket. Right. As a percent anywhere else in America. And the morning you had 300 Haitians living next to Nancy Pelosi and San Francisco, she would suddenly decide that we need to build the border wall. I love, I love the like, you know, as the theater geek, you know how much I love the fact I'm a couple of weeks I'll be shaving my head and playing daddy warbucks in a production of Annie for the children's theater here in the upstate of South Carolina plays you know well. And so The Lion King analogy is perfect. I'm going to quote you, I'm going to cite it and I can't wait to read.
"gingrich" Discussed on Mike Gallagher Podcast
"It's always important, I think to get Newt Gingrich's perspective on a lot of the issues that face us as a nation. Of course, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives. And you know, I think about the contract with America and I think about the chance we have to sort of get this country back on some semblance of normalcy if Glenn young were to win. And so, of course, speaker gingrich is great visiting with you again here on the Mike Gallagher show. Now when this airs we're not going to know the outcome, you said something this week on Sean Hannity show that I've quoted often this week if it is enclosed, we should be all right if it's closed, the Democrats will likely cheat. I think that's right. I think you have to recognize that there's a certain margin where they can't cheat and at that point they don't even try. But if it's really close, sometime around ten o'clock at night, suddenly, extra ballots start to show up. And we've had lots of cases of that. It's not we had Al Franken one because they happened to find extra ballots in a trunk of a car that they hadn't realized were there. Fulton county, Georgia, I have no doubt, had a massive amount of cheating in the last election. Seeing go around and look at that, I worry about fairfax county. The city of Richmond and two counties down along the coast. It's sort of the centers of potential theft in Virginia, but I'm hopeful, you and I are talking of course the day before, Chris and I voted this morning. We don't know the outcome yet. But I'm hopeful that, in fact, junk is going to win by a big enough margin that cheating would be irrelevant. And at that point, we'll have a relatively honest election and we'll have an earthquake in Washington, because of junk and does win. Both defining the new set of issues which Republicans and conservatives can campaign on, particularly about education. And defining the value of a issue based system where people talk about what matters as opposed to a political system, which was really the contrast between the mcauliffe campaign which was totally hung up on January 6th on Donald Trump. And I think young can did a great job of having Trump's support without getting into a fight over it, and at the same time focusing 95% of what he was doing on Virginia and the needs of virginians in the contrast with Macaulay was just astonishing. And young Ken in a sense is a prelude to my new book beyond Biden, because the essence of beyond Biden is that being negative being anti Biden is not a strategy for the nation. A further more blindness sufficiently destructive of himself. You don't need to spend a lot of time. Almost any video of Kamala Harris, and you understand she's hopeless. You could show Biden sleeping during the global warming conference, although I do point out to people. If you've never tried to stay awake for an entire global warming speech, you don't understand the scale of the challenge that Joe Biden had. So, you know, I just think between inflation rising crime rates and uncontrolled border, a disastrous military failure to implement in Afghanistan. You go down the list. The simple battle cry is, it just doesn't work. It's not working. But the optics of Biden fallen asleep at a summit that is exploring what he keeps calling this existential crisis for mankind. We all know he was given that talking point early on. He doesn't believe that. How do you fall asleep in the middle of his summit that is trying to solve this giant existential crisis? If it's the next existential crisis, one would think you keep your eyes open. You know, let me, this will surprise you. Calista and I did a movie called Ronald Reagan rendezvous with destiny. Oh, I know it well. And it was useful to remember when Reagan first goes to Europe and sees Pope John Paul the second, with whom he has a very, very good relationship. He, in fact, falls asleep. During the meeting. And the reason was, and they learned a real lesson from this. They had not allowed for jet lag. They flew straight over. They went straight to the meeting. It was a warm room. And you have to do this picture of Reagan sort of dozing off for a minute. But the difference was this. Having had Reagan gets shot. Walk into the hospital. Right. And 45 days later walk into the capitol to give a major speech. Nobody thought Reagan was physically weak or in danger of not being cognitive capable. So they all struggled off and said that was goofy, and they learned, by the way, that when you go to Europe or you go to Asia, you give yourself enough time to recover before you start working. You know, I thought I'm sorry, but I thought I thought off and I thought about your movie. I thought about Reagan's incredible resilience when we watched. I mean, let's not forget. It was just a couple of years it just seems like yesterday, but it seems so ingrained in my brain that Trump had president Trump had COVID. And was sick. And before you know it, has bounded back and is back on the campaign trail. He was into fatigue able much the way Reagan was. Well, that's right. They're very similar in their sheer biological energy and their toughness. And also their cheerfulness and their wildness to always move forward. The problem for Biden is, everybody sort of thinks it's normal for Biden to fall asleep. Trump's line that he's sleepy Joe. Turns out to be real. And I said, that's why, plus, you know, there's this notion that it is working. I got to tell you. Every filled up record of the day for $72, and I filled up my truck the next day for $79. And I thought to myself for all of Biden's promises not to raise taxes when people below $400,000, every American who is buying gasoline or buying natural gas or trying to heat their house this winter or for that matter going out to buy food. A good friend of mine bought a chicken three weeks ago for $6 and last week, the same chickens in terms of weight and quality was $12. I just talked to a friend who said, oh, there's probably one of the largest Turkey growers in the U.S.. This is not a reference to politicians. One of the guys who actually grows real turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas said there won't be a shortage of turkeys, but they will be bigger because there's no labor shortage of calling the turkeys when they're Americans apparently like ten to 12 pound turkeys. And they're going to get 12 to 14 and above 14 because they literally don't have enough workers to get them when they're at ten to 12 pounds. And he said, and they're going to cost a lot more..
"gingrich" Discussed on CATS Roundtable
"And i understand we have with us. Newt gingrich he's been i understand. He's been away. He's been enjoying a rome and he's back mr speaker klaus great talking to you welcome back. We missed you. You were out. You were in rome enjoying the sun enjoying the vatican to the newsletter today. Asking really simple question when you watch all of these thousands of people illegally crossing the border Where are they going. Apparently the biden administration will not tell us where they're sending all of the illegal immigrants. They're sending them where they need votes. Well i think that's what they're doing. But i think i think they owe to the american people when you have people coming over to have not been tested for covert in many cases have not been checked for a criminal record. to just put on a greyhound and say good luck strikes me as really totally irresponsible and a threat to the country. And i think that this is. This is an issue that members of the house and senate out of the sem. So who's coming to mind district and who's gonna pay for it It's it's a real problem and of course when you start letting thousands of people across the border one way to think of this. As compared to a city in july under the biden system. We add birmingham. you know. Illegal immigrants to birmingham alabama two hundred. One thousand people Where did they go. You know how many of them were criminals. How many how many of them had covert in in mcallen. Texas were a lot of them. Go early on They estimate was sixteen. Percent of the people coming across the border had cove it now. that's basically who was actually in mccallum. So they'd had about seven thousand. I think well come to their relatively small town at least speaker. What may in the last seven months policies that the biden administration comes up with. What do you think makes you the most angry or hurt our country. The most that is a really good question. I i think what what has made me. The angriest actually was not by but pelosi As a former speaker of the house. I think that the the us house is very very very important. And i think that it is the center of freedom not not the presidency which is just a kingship but but the the. Us house is built on the traditional british house comments and watching her become a dictator watching her break every single rule Watching her run things entirely on her. Own i i think is the most destructive thing i've seen by any american politician In a very very long time. And i think that if we will see for years from now and of course it's carried over to biden who was told by the. Us supreme court that he cannot by executive order. stopped landlords from collecting the rent Decides she'll just go ahead and violate the constitution. Which is you know in. The supreme court has ruled if a president goes directly that ruling. He is clearly violating the constitution. And you have to wonder. I mean doesn't there's no respect for the rule of law at the border. There's no respect for the rule of law when it gets involved in an issue that the left-wing cares about And of course now although we already have inflation and we already see gasoline..

"This is the cats roundtable chime cats smith here sunday morning. What's going on in our country. Well one of the smartest guys. I know as a historian published many many books and wasn't the vatican for many many years because of his wife being the ambassador to the vatican. Well he's back. He's back in washington with us. This morning is former speaker of the house. Newt gingrich in morning nude. How are you doing well. First of all the different things going on in our country. So i'm confident that eventually just went out because america's very resilient country. I'm hoping that Joe biden president. You know you've known him for one hundred years usually his closer to center than left Do you think that by his appointments. He's showing that. Oh by his speech give us a your evaluation of his inauguration speech and and the people he's appointed well. I think the speech was very very good. 'cause i had a chance to actually see it live on a wi fi on delta airplane coming back from room to the us. And i thought that Really was was shaped correctly What theme of unity made sense was almost dwight eisenhower. Kind of speech on the challenge for biden. I think is that the team around him is way to the left of speech. And that's why after the speech is over. He walked back down washing down the pennsylvania avenue and ultimately signing some seventeen Executive orders that afternoon almost which fit to speech. So there's challenge is going to be making a decision. Is he going to be the president biden of the inaugural address or the president biden of executive orders and those are two really really different futures. And he's you know he's the guy tries to decide which one of those who wants to be. Well i mean he's got all the the marvels in the whole world of the democratic party controls. The executive office controls the senate now and controls the congress. Somebody executive orders. He has signed or were closing. Down the pipeline..
