Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House. He is a historian. He distinguishes between the old liberalism and the modern Left. Liberalism embraced American values, whereas the new Left rejects them. The Left sees the founding fathers as slave owners and America as an imperialist nation that does not deserve to exist. It sees society in terms of racism and sexism. The Left decries normal, hard-working Americans as homophobes and Islamophobes. It sees them as bigots. Gingrich sees our nation divided in a way that it has not been since the Civil War. Surely, he has not forgotten Vietnam and the chaos of the late 60s. Still, it is a fact that The Left has gotten control of government, the media and academia. Schools and colleges are indoctrinating students with left-wing propaganda rather than providing them with real knowledge.
Donald Trump was able to overcome media bias and defeat Hillary Clinton's billion dollar machine because he appealed to Americans as one people. Gingrich contends that Trump is the only person who could have done it. His themes of "America First" and "Make America Great Again" resonated with workers and the middle class. Voters were fed up with the establishments of both parties and flocked to Trump's rallies in cities across the country. Bush squandered trillions in the Middle East, while Obama left us 20 trillion in debt and with a depleted military. Obamacare failed, and our infrastructure decayed as billions were poured into defending everyone's borders but our own. Hillary wasted millions on attack ads while Trump used the social media, going directly to the people via facebook and twitter. Trump loves America, and it shows. He loves American workers. He is a great communicator in the same way Ronald Reagan was. He stuck to his themes of illegal immigration, trade deals and rebuilding America. Hillary offered no solution to our country's problems, and her contempt for Trump supporters was palpable, labeling them "a basket of deplorables."
There has never been a president like Donald Trump. He has never held a political office nor has he been a general in the military. He is a businessman. He is a builder, a real estate mogul and TV personality. Still, he has great respect for the military and appointed generals James Mattis as his Secretary of Defense and John Kelly as his Secretary of Homeland Security. Trump himself spent 5 years at the New York Military Academy, where he graduated in 1964, attaining the rank of captain. From there, he attended Fordham University and the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business, where he got a bachelor's degree in economics. Americans voted for President Trump because they wanted change. The Washington bureaucracy continues to resist Trump, both Democrats and Republicans, but he has a mandate. Trump will use his strength as a master negotiator and deal-maker. He will find ways to ensure that the federal government bends to the will of the people. This is his mission. Democrats and news agencies are resisting with fake news and outright lies in an attempt to undermine his agenda. The Left's effort to link Trump with Russia is absurd. We would be better served by an investigation into the felonies of Susan Rice and the murder of Seth Rich. The Left's hatred for Trump is not only unjustified. It is unnatural. The Left is drowning in its hatred.
Mainstream media continues their attacks on Trump: CNN, the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, CBS & ABC. President Trump represents the end of their world. The entertainment media, Hollywood & the music industry are vicious.
Gingrich devotes the last part of his book to telling what President Trump must do to succeed. He must embrace his roll as commander-in-chief. He must secure our borders and restore law and order to our cities. He must stop the flow of illegal drugs from Mexico and South America and prevent Islamic terrorists from entering our country. He must end sanctuary cities.
Trump can create jobs by cutting taxes, the idea being that by taxing businesses less, they are able to hire more people. Trump needs to get rid of regulations that impede businesses. Newt loves telling Trump what to do.
I was never going to vote again until Trump got into it. I threw away my voter card and had to get a new one. When Trump pointed to the camera and affirmed "I am your voice!," he was speaking to me.
