Newt and Hitch: What Kind of War is the War on Terrorism?

Published on March 18, 2012 By sirrahc

This one goes back a few years… Back in July 2002, Newt Gingrich and Christopher Hitchens appeared together on an episode of Uncommon Knowledge to discuss how best to define & describe the “War on Terrorism”. Hitch and Newt largely agreed on most things, and they both had some interesting things to say, points well […]

Newt Talks to the NRA

Published on March 16, 2012 By sirrahc

At a Leadership Forum in Pittsburgh, PA, Newt Gingrich addressed members of the National Rifle Association about, not surprisingly, Second Amendment rights. (Shocker, I know!) Towards the beginning, he brought up a very important point about how the Second Amendment is worded. “It talks about the inherent right to bear arms. It doesn’t say the […]

Newt at ORU

Published on March 14, 2012 By sirrahc

Place: Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Oklahoma Date: Feb. 20, 2012 Newt hit a lot of the usual topics — e.g., jobs, energy, taxes, Islamist radicals & national security, Obama’s dangerous & irresponsible policies — in this speech, though he did have a few words to say in the beginning about “pursuit of happiness” that I […]

Newt on Israel and Protecting the Free World from Islamic Jihad

Published on March 5, 2012 By sirrahc

Today, we learned that Barack Obama met again with Benjamin Netanyahu, where the President assured the Israeli Prime Minister that the U.S. has Israel’s back, should they decide they need to launch a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities (though urging him to resist doing so). It’s quite a turnaround from Obama’s previous statements and […]

Newt on Combating Judicial Activism

Published on March 3, 2012 By sirrahc

“There is no judicial supremacy. It does not exist in the American Constitution. Let me be clear: Judicial supremacy is factually wrong; it is morally wrong; and it is an affront to the American system of self-government.” Late last year, Newt Gingrich spoke at the Value Voters Summit, where he addressed the problem of judicial […]

Newt on Energy Independence and $2.50 per Gallon Gasoline

Published on March 2, 2012 By sirrahc

“President Obama has taken us from $1.89 to the most expensive gasoline, on average, that we’ve ever had. They’re still not satisfied.” Today’s video is an address Newt gave earlier this month about “unleashing the American people” and taking advantage of the incredible natural resources we have in this country — both on land and […]

Newt at CPAC 2012

Published on March 1, 2012 By sirrahc

“We intend to change Washington — not accommodate it!” In my efforts this week to get Newt’s ideas & values in front of more people, I have posted here his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference a few weeks ago. (Fyi, not surprisingly, there is some overlap with the “21st Century Contract with America” […]

Newt Outlines 21st Century Contract with America

Published on February 29, 2012 By sirrahc

“An adult document for adults.” Today’s video has the former Speaker of the House speaking in Des Moines, Iowa, where he introduced his current campaign platform — an updated version of the “Contract with America”. (The original was put together by Larry Hunter, Dick Armey, Gingrich, and a few others back in 1994.) I’ve heard […]

Newt Challenges Michigan: Change or Die!

Published on February 27, 2012 By sirrahc

More people NEED to hear Newt Gingrich talk about his ideas and his vision for the nation. As great as he (usually) is in debates, he has to share the stage with the other candidates; plus, the debate schedule has slowed down. I find his solo talks educational and inspiring, filled with historical examples and […]
