Newt Gingrich is a smart man. He knows his way around the swamp. He was one of the last members of Congress who was actually able to stall the rising tide of corruption in Washington.
If you forget he was able to use leverage to get Bill Clinton to reform welfare and balance the budget. We, and this may shock you, actually had a surplus rather than adding to the debt for a few years after Newt led the charge to drain or contain the swamp.
It worked too so don’t listen to liberals when they say it doesn’t. There is hard proof.
Many of the men who helped Newt are still dining out off that accomplishment – I am talking about you Joe Scarborough.
So when Newt speaks he is not just some run of the mill politician trying to score some publicity. He has a proven track record of being right.
And in an article he wrote for Fox News he lays out the case why Trump will go down in history as one of the all-time greats.
“In one of the most important speeches of his presidency, President Donald Trump has outlined a new standard for American leadership on the world stage. This speech explains the strategy of a sovereignty based nationalism as a clear alternative to the globalist desire to submerge nations in international agreements and institutions.
In his first address to the United Nations on Tuesday, President Trump called for “a great reawakening of nations, for the revival of their spirits, their pride, their people, and their patriotism.” It was a strong, clear, decisive call for national identity as the first step to healthy and sustainable international cooperation, at a time that is critical to determining the future prosperity and safety of our world.”
Correct. We need a new direction and Trump has the correct vision that history demands. Newt continued,
“Similar to his major foreign policy speeches in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia last spring and Warsaw, Poland this past summer, Tuesday’s speech was both historic and potentially game-changing.
The president placed intellectual clarity and emphasis on his principle that the world will be made safer when America and its allies in the United Nations work together as sovereign nations to achieve peace and security in the world – a notion which echoes the founding doctrine in the Charter of the United Nations.
During his remarks, President Trump asked member nations, “Are we still patriots? Do we love our nations enough to protect their sovereignty and to take ownership of their futures? Do we revere them enough to defend their interests, preserve their cultures, and ensure a peaceful world for their citizens?”
This question was an intellectual call to arms. The United Nations’ sovereign members need to think critically about whether it is in the best interest of their citizens to allow terrorism and unstable rogue regimes, such as North Korea, Iran, and Syria to provoke chaos and death across the world.
In many ways, the president’s appeal was reminiscent of Winston Churchill’s warnings against European appeasement of Hitler in the years leading up to World War II.”
Again Newt hits the nail on the head as we have two choices – stop the madness and help bring freedom to the world and if they don’t want freedom isolate them – that means you China and you Putin re: North Korea and Syria – from the rest of the world.
Look Trump’s vision is the correct one for one huge reason the American people decided it was right. Despite what the media will have you believe the American people are not stupid and we usually get it right. It may be messy but we have done a good job so far.
Newt continued taking a few shots at the radical left while exposing their ignorance for all to see,
“No doubt, those on the left will condemn this speech, saying that the president’s policy of putting the interests of America and Americans before those of other nations is divergent, isolationist, and dangerous.
However, this view ignores history. Since its founding, every member of the United Nations has been expected to put the interests of its own citizens first.
When the United Nations was established in 1945 to replace the League of Nations, which had proved too ineffective to maintain peace and security in the years following World War I, there was no expectation that Great Britain would hold its own people second to the citizens of France. The leaders of China would not have been expected to put the interests of the Dutch before their own people. And Joseph Stalin knew that President Harry Truman would put America before the USSR. Any other notion would have been utterly preposterous.
As President Trump said on Tuesday, “If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph. When decent people and nations become bystanders to history, the forces of destruction only gather power and strength.”
And with that a new vision for the future was announced and if Trump pulls it off – and the swamp won’t go easy – he will go down in history as one of the all-time greats.
