Newt Gingrich draws a sharp contrast between the way things were before the pandemic and the way they will be after the pandemic. 2020 is vital. If president Trump is re-elected, he will be among America's greatest presidents. 2016 was only the beginning. 2020 is the decisive election. Trump must win, and the Republicans must control Congress. Trump has a massive Facebook and Twitter following. It helped him win in 2016. It meant instant communication. It made the rallies possible. Trump stands outside the boundaries of traditional politics. He is a counter-puncher, and he punches harder than his opponents. 2020 is about survival. Trump threatens the Left's way of life. That is why they hate him so much. Not since Abraham Lincoln in 1860, has there been this kind of polarity. One set of values will survive. One set will not. President Trump has insisted that the conservative justices he has appointed be under 50 years of age. He has repealed burdensome regulations. He is the most pro-life president in history. He has fought for religious freedom. He has resisted an increasingly insane news media. Newt Gingrich refers to Trump's first term as if there will be a second. He writes about the failed coup attempts: the phony impeachment, the phony Russia hoax & the crusade against President Trump's cabinet members. Mainstream media has been almost totally biased. They hate Trump! The Left automatically attacks people it hates as "racist" when, in fact, it is they who are the bigots. The Democratic Left ends up supporting criminals while opposing law and order. They hate the police while supporting sanctuary cities.
In chapter 13, Newt addresses China and the deep state. China is challenging us, stealing our technologies. The so-called deep state is resisting President Trump's efforts to compete with China and its Communist Party. I went to Hong Kong in 2016. Around that time I began to notice an increasing number of Chinese students on the Vanderbilt University campus, where I live. The Chinese are here! Newt holds China responsible for the Wuhan virus, which has spread around the globe.
Newt says America's survival is at stake. We need bold changes and, naturally, there will be resistance. We need to work together. Newt is enthusiastic about space exploration for the first time in many years. Donald Trump is the most pro-space president since John Kennedy. The idea is to return to the moon by 2024, then follow it with a manned mission to Mars. The Artemis project is about creating a permanent base on the moon.
