Newt Gingrich

Newt

Thursday night as the latest terror attack in Nice, France claimed the lives of 80 people when a truck rammed a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day, Newt Gingrich went on Fox News to tell America what he really thinks the problem is.

Newt didn’t hold back.

Newt was mad on Thursday night; a feeling that most Americans had when hearing about the attack in France.

When asked about the problem, Newt says that the Western elites are the cause of the problem for not doing what is “right”. Newt then went on to say, “That starts with Barack Obama”.

Speaking plainly, Newt went on to say things like “sharia law is incompatible with Western civilizations” and anyone who visits an ISIS website should be arrested and charged with a “felony”.

One of the statements that is firing up the left right now was about monitoring Muslim mosques. Newt said, “If you’re not prepared to monitor the mosques, this whole thing is a joke”.

Newt sounded a lot like Trump in some ways. It is no coincidence that he is one of the top two candidates for Trump’s VP pick, which was going to be announced today at 11am, but moved because of the attack.

Trump has been called a racist and worse for his comments on Muslims and wanting to ban them for a short time to “work things out”.

Will Newt face the same backlash? Sure from the radical liberals, but Newt is much more detailed when he speaks. Newt made it clear that he isn’t talking about all Muslims; something that Trump didn’t differentiate when he made the announcement.

Only 20-30% of Muslims around the world believe in Sharia law and carry ancient and radical views. There are over a billion, good, and peace loving Muslims who hate ISIS just as much as you do.

Newt is talking about the 350 million radical Muslims who want to kill us. It is a fact we have to face, and Newt has a plan. His plan sounds like a more detailed and rational plan of Donald Trump’s announcement about banning all Muslims, but along similar lines.

It is clear that Newt is trying to push the bar in the interview and getting headlines in the process. He is making his case to Donald Trump, and Donald is watching. Maybe the delay in the VP announcement means Mike Pence may not be the running mate after all.

There is no question that Newt knows his stuff, and he has been in the trenches before fighting against the Clintons, but all of politics aside, does Newt have the right solutions to fix global terrorism?

VP Pick

Last week was a horrible week in America, and for a brief time period, we all focused on the five fallen officers in Dallas.

As we move forward from that tragic event, people are focusing back in on the elections as Donald Trump plans to make his VP pick this week.

Donald Trump spoke to the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday and announced that he has narrowed it down to three potential candidates.

The final three are Indiana Governor Mike Pence, former Speaker Newt Gingrich and surprisingly, Chris Christie is still one of his top picks.

Donald Trump recognizes his lack of political experience and wants to have a running mate that has experience as a governor and a leader.

Donald likes Chris Christie because he is a tough guy and Trump even called him a “fighter”. Chris Christie is also the first of the GOP primary opponents to back Trump during the campaign.

Governor Mike Pence could be the front-runner according to some close to Trump. Pence is relatively unknown to the masses, but again Trump likes his “fighting spirit” and he could be fresh face with a lot of experience.

Mike Pence has been on the campaign trail this week with Donald Trump in what some are calling a tryout.

His last pick of this top three is Newt Gingrich. The former Speaker is a guy that knows how to fight the Clintons. He did it in the 1990’s.

Newt is a smart guy and some of the top GOP donors and members are pushing Trump to take Newt.

With the GOP Convention starting next week, Donald Trump said he will make a decision and announce his VP pick before the weekend. Most people close to the campaign, think the decision will happen Friday.

This is a big moment for Trump. He is closing the gap on Hillary in the polls and the right VP choice could really help bring new people to his camp. This is a big decision.

Who do you think Trump should pick? Take the poll below and then let us know why you picked that person in the comments below.

Who do you think Trump should pick for his running mate?

This past Sunday, ABC’s This Week host George Stephanopoulis played the unexpected role of Hillary defender in an exchange with panelist Mark Halperin who is widely regarded as a liberal voice in Washington.

As the segment developed, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich laid out a series of criticisms of Mrs. Clinton’s actions at the State Department going as far as suggesting that upon taking the oath of office as Secretary, President Bill Clinton’s speaking fees shot up along with donations to the Clinton Foundation – with some individual donations and financial commitments from foreign nationals, companies and governments approaching $145 million.

Stephanopoulis expect this from the former Republican speaker.

Then Stephanopoulis pivoted to Halperin for what he must have thought would be some kind of rebuttal of Gingrich’s observations but that’s not what he got. Instead, Halperin mirrored Gingrich’s arguments in this tense exchange:

MARK HALPERIN: Imagine if an Assistant Secretary of State had done what Hillary Clinton – what we know Hillary did. They would be out of the State Department.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULIS, THIS WEEK: What things?

HALPERIN: Co-mingling of a family foundation, donations from foreign governments, increased speech fees, and government actions.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULIS: No evidence of government actions.

HALPERIN: We know there were government actions taken, what we don’t know – and this goes to the deleted emails – is what kind of interaction did Hillary Clinton have on her private email account regarding her husband’s speeches and Foundation activities involving foreign donations.

If they hadn’t been so careless at the Foundation, if she hadn’t deleted the emails, if they put somebody out on this show today to answer these questions, I think a lot of this could be put to rest, but none of those things are true.

For the period in question, Mrs. Clinton has already said that she deleted all of her emails from her private server and that her server had been wiped of all data – incriminating or not.

However, new evidence against Mrs. Clinton shows that when she became secretary of state, Bill Clinton’s speaking fees more than tripled. It has also been learned that she failed to disclose a more than $2 million donation to the Clinton Foundation when the Obama administration required her to.

This past week, the Clinton Foundation said that they would be refiling at least five years’ worth of tax returns to correct errors and omissions. Once the amended returns are filed, expect the Washington Press Corp, which has bristled at the lack of access they have been given so far to candidate Hillary, to closely examine what has changes were made and why.

Fox News will continue its’ in depth reporting on all presidential candidates as is the network’s policy.
