Newt Gingrich’s Foxnews.com op-ed opens with a sobering statistic. It starts by saying “Americans oppose defunding police by 72% to 26%, according to Pew Research Center. Let that fact sink in as you watch what Democratic leaders and the propaganda media are promoting across the country.”

The statistic isn’t surprising. A majority of people from all races, religions, ethnicities and incomes prefer safety over chaos. What’s surprising is that a major political party thinks that they can win a presidential election while supporting the defunding or outright dismantling of police departments. Rush Limbaugh used to say that (I hope I get this right) “liberalism isn’t a political philosophy. It’s a mental disorder.” But I digress. Let’s return to Speaker Gingrich’s op-ed.

Unlike some Democratic politicians, the American people know that getting rid of police creates a vacuum, which predators will fill. This is exactly what is happening with the growing disaster in Minneapolis. In fact, the trouble in Minneapolis is a case study on the results of the radical Democratic policy of protecting criminals, hating police and endangering law-abiding citizens, which I write about in my new book Trump and the American Future.

The leftwing Democrats who dominate the Minneapolis government have been crippling and starving the police department. Unfortunately for most Minneapolis citizens, criminals are beginning to understand what a happy hunting ground the Democrats are creating for them.

I’ve heard stories that up to 20% of buildings along Lake Street, the busiest street in the Twin Cities, are up for sale. East Lake Street runs from 35W to St. Paul, which makes it one of the longer streets in Minneapolis. When that many stores are up for sale, that’s a red flag that something is seriously wrong. This is frightening:

Gunfire incidents were up 224% in June and 166% in July, according to the Star-Tribune. Armed robberies and car-jackings are also on the rise, with 100 robberies and 20 car-jackings reported in the city’s South Side in July alone. As the police shrink the criminals grow.

This isn’t rocket science:

Yes, Ben Shapiro is a smart guy. It didn’t take a Ben Shapiro-sized intellect to figure out that Minneapolis’s plan to dismantle their police department would end in calamity. Let’s return to the Pew Research findings, then compare them with this polling:

It isn’t a stretch to think that Minneapolis is going to hell in a handbasket when you consider how their city is run by idiots compared with the people successfully running smaller cities in the Midwest and nationwide. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Check this out:

Libor Janey of the Star-Tribune reported on Aug. 1 that “Minneapolis police are down at least 100 officers since the killing of George Floyd, more than 10% of the force, straining department resources amid a wave of violence and adding extra urgency to the political debate over its future.” Janey then wrote that the force could be down by one-third by the end of the year.

Already, only six officers are patrolling the 14.5-square-mile third precinct. That means there is less than one policeman for every two miles. This may help explain the third precinct’s letter to innocent citizens urging them to obey the criminals, and give up their wallets, keys and cell phones.

This isn’t a disaster waiting to happen. It’s a disaster that’s happening. The saddest thing is that these Democrats are too proud to admit that they’re wrong.

While testifying to the House Committee on Administration, Newt Gingrich showed that he’s still part history teacher, part patriot and part constitutionalist. It isn’t surprising to me that his list of accomplishments as Speaker is lengthy and impressive. Speaker Gingrich is still one of the most impressive intellects of our time.

During Speaker Gingrich’s testimony, Speaker Gingrich started with a lesson on the Constitution, then transitioned to a civics teacher before finishing as a school principal admonishing disobedient students. Specifically, I want to focus on Speaker Gingrich’s role of admonishing Congress.

Specifically, Speaker Gingrich called out Congress essentially for being elitists and wimps:

Our national anthem says we are “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” Our Founding Fathers risked their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to defend freedom. The Civil War generation lost 630,000 Americans fighting for the Union and to end slavery. The Greatest Generation went across the planet risking its lives to defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. By the way, through all these events, Congress met in person.

Now, we are told that our members of the House are too precious to risk their lives by coming to Washington.

To these members I would say: If freedom isn’t worth the risk, quit the Congress. Someone with more courage will replace you in a special election. The emotion driving the proposal for remote voting is an expression of a kind of cowardice I would never have expected to see in America.

Ms. Pelosi, like Democrat governors Whitmer, Walz, Pritzker and Inslee, likes being in total control. The thought that Democrats voted to vote from their districts isn’t surprising, though it is wimpy. Across the way on Capitol Hill, the Senate is meeting regularly and getting lots of things done. They’re confirming judges and holding Intelligence Committee and Judiciary Committee hearings. The Democrat House has gotten things done but only after getting dragged kicking and screaming to do their job.

We are asking children and teachers to go back to school, but House members can’t come to Washington. We are asking truckers to crisscross the country bringing us food and supplies, but their representatives have to hide in fear and vote electronically to avoid risk.

We have young men and women risking their lives all across the planet to protect freedom, but their elected leaders can’t risk being in a room with immediate access to doctors and remarkably little risk of anything bad happening.

I am embarrassed for this House that such a proposal could even get to a hearing.

Let’s be clear about something. If average citizens can function safely in a Walmart, Congresscritters should be able to figure out a way to function on Capitol Hill. The routine is simple. Wash hands frequently, stay socially distanced, cough into your shirt rather than across a room and finally, don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your hands. If the House can’t figure that out, then we need a different Speaker and a different (GOP) majority.

Here is Speaker Gingrich’s opening statement:

Newt Gingrich has always been one of the best political thinkers in the business. When he writes or talks, I stop and listen to what he has to say. When I saw this article, I started digging into it. It didn’t take long to figure out that the Defund The Police Democrats are pushing a losing issue.

For instance, Gingrich wrote “The gap between the radical Left and the American people was captured in a recent Pew Poll that showed 73 percent of the American people opposed cutting spending on the police, and only 25 percent favored decreasing spending on the police.” Gingrich continued “Twenty percent of those asked said we should spend a little more on police, and 11 percent said we should spend a lot more (for a total of 31 percent who favor spending more money on policing). By contrast, 12 percent said to cut a lot, and slightly under 14 percent said to cut a little. The largest bloc of Americans was 42 percent, who said we should keep police funding where it is.”

Twenty-six percent of people wanted police spending cut a little or a lot. Everyone else wanted police spending kept the same, increased a little or increased a lot. That’s a 3:1 margin opposed to the Democrats’ Defund the Police policy.

It’s possible to win if you’re on the wrong side of a 3:1 issue if nobody cares about the issue. It’s impossible to win if you’re on the 1-side of a 3:1 issue that everyone cares passionately about.

This pattern is not just about speeches, slogans and platforms. Democrats in Minneapolis are abolishing the city’s police department and replacing it with some undefined community service program. You can imagine how intimidated robbers, murderers and rapists will be by the unarmed-but-sincere Minneapolis community service force.

In Seattle, Democrats are cutting the police budget by 50 percent with a similar community service fantasy replacement. Given that six people were shot, which led to the death of two teenagers, during what the Democratic mayor called “the summer of love” in the city’s “autonomous zone,” you might have thought the people of Seattle would get more police protection rather than less.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best calls Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan’s plan to cut the SPD budget by 50% “reckless”:

Democrats like Pelosi, Schumer and Biden can insist that they aren’t for defunding the police all they want. What matters is Seattle cutting the SPD budget by 50%, Minneapolis voting to dismantle the MPD and Bill de Blasio cutting the $6,000,000,000 NYPD budget by $1,000,000,000. When crime rates skyrocket, Democrats will pay the price. Republicans are proposing reasonable reforms but they’re pushing cities to increase spending on police departments, too. The American people are smart enough to know that Republicans are proposing things that keep people safe and that Democrats are the party that support Antifa, BLM and decimated police departments.

People either understood or anticipated that COVID would eventually get defeated. They took COVID seriously but it wasn’t something that they were afraid of. This violence worries people. It isn’t just quarantined to poor neighborhoods. It’s migrated into Manhattan, some rich neighborhoods in St. Louis and Seattle. The point is that this violence doesn’t recognize geographic boundaries. It goes where it wants.

That’s why the Democrats defund debate is a loser.

While Nancy Pelosi didn’t create the current recession, it’s certain that she’s responsible for extending it. First, the recession started because of the COVID-19 virus that was spread by China because they weren’t transparent about how infectious the virus is. The Chinese Communist Party, aka the CCP, is still hiding information from the world. They’re still lying, too.

That being said, Nancy Pelosi has twice caused tons of economic harm that didn’t have to happen. First, there was bipartisan agreement on a relief package in the Senate. Meanwhile, the House left on recess. Pelosi returned to DC and immediately insisted on a ton of demands that had nothing to do with COVID-19. She held that original bill hostage for a week. That’s the bill that created the Payroll Protection Program, aka the PPP. After a week of holding small businesses hostage, Pelosi settled for $25,000,000 in funding for the Kennedy Center and funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities and funding for the National Endowment for the Arts.

This time, Pelosi is holding Blue Collar America hostage again. The PPP ran out of money. Senate Democrats objected to Sen. McConnell’s bill for a supplemental appropriation of $250,000,000,000 to the PPP after it ran out of money. Again, Pelosi wasn’t in DC searching for a solution. She was in her San Francisco mansion showing off her “two Wolf Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezers.”

Speaker Gingrich wrote that “my wife Callista knew what a Wolf Sub-Zero refrigerator was, but I sure did not. I Googled it. Wolf’s own description is: ‘Find the best luxury refrigerators for your needs with Sub-Zero full-size stainless steel or custom panel refrigerators, freezers and undercounter refrigerators.’ They range in price up to $20,000-plus.” Then Speaker Gingrich added this:

While many Americans were gathered around their Easter tables praying and wondering what they would do without income or a job, Pelosi was blocking small business support and wondering what she would have done without ice cream. By the way, you, too, can get the ice cream she was bragging about having delivered – five pints for $58 before tax.

Pelosi could’ve signaled that she was ok with topping off the PPP account via unanimous consent and this crisis could’ve been averted. Loans could’ve still been approved. Payrolls could’ve been met without interruption. Lives wouldn’t have to have been disrupted for something that wasn’t an urgent need.

Blue Collar America has had their lives disrupted unnecessarily because Ms. Pelosi couldn’t resist the opportunity to play partisan politics yet another time. Lives hang in the balance but Ms. Pelosi thinks that it’s a game. This quickly puts things into perspective:

What makes the Pelosi attitude so infuriating is the fact that the small business payroll protection plan has worked far better than anyone thought possible. The Small Business Administration, working with the nation’s banks, has gotten nearly $350 billion into the economy in 14 days. Before the Trump administration, $30 billion in an entire year was a major SBA effort. Now, it had managed to loan $349 billion in two weeks.

There’s a book that I gave to my brother as a Christmas present years ago titled “Nothing else like it in the World”, written by Stephen Ambrose. It’s the history of how the Transcontinental Railroad was built in the 19th Century. America is still that amazing place, though it’s changed some. This video captures my sentiments perfectly:

Ari Fleischer nailed it by saying that “It all comes from freedom, capitalism and innovation.” The default position of the United States is growth, innovation and the occasional miracle that stuns the world. A friend of mine from Fingerhut was one of the most optimistic people I’ve ever met. He had a little sign in his office that fits this situation perfectly. It said “The difficult, we do immediately. The impossible takes a little bit longer.”

We’re still that people — when politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Tim Walz and other Democrats get out of the way.

The joint statement from Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Schumer is disappointing in that it’s a purely partisan document. While President Trump delivered a measured, serious speech to the nation in which he called for both sides to work together, Pelosi and Schumer chose to push division on Capitol Hill:

We have a public health crisis in this country and the best way to help keep the American people safe and ensure their economic security is for the president to focus on fighting the spread of the coronavirus itself. Alarmingly, the president did not say how the administration will address the lack of coronavirus testing kits throughout the United States.

Tomorrow, we urge Republicans in the House and Senate to help immediately pass the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The bill will include free coronavirus testing, paid emergency leave for workers, food security assistance, help to states overburdened by Medicaid costs, and strengthened Unemployment Insurance, among other much-needed measures to keep the American people safe.

Notice that the Democrats’ leadership on Capitol Hill didn’t acknowledge President Trump’s month-long travel ban of people coming from Europe, with the exception of the British. That’s a major step. When the Trump administration implemented the travel ban with China, Democrats called President Trump xenophobic. Tonight’s travel ban was met with crickets.

The Democrats’ plan is government-centric. President Trump’s plan is a mix of making sure that the US health care system stays strong, reducing international travel, financially helping workers who get infected with the virus and relying on the best public health system in the world to get us through this crisis. This isn’t just a ‘whole of government’ approach. President Trump’s plan is a whole of America plan.

Compare the Pelosi-Schumer 2 paragraph statement with this Rubio-Gingrich op-ed:

First, the U.S. government should empower our robust private business sector to expand in order to meet new demand for medical supplies. Congress should cut taxes on manufacturers committing to new capital spending in America by making permanent the accelerated cost depreciation measures in the 2017 Republican tax law. New medical structures and equipment should be temporarily singled out for additional reductions.

Second, agencies with lending operations like the U.S. Small Business Administration should make low-cost capital available to businesses seeking to solve their supply chain problems by bringing production in-house to America, or otherwise buying from American small businesses.

Third, as American businesses struggle with supply chain disruptions due to the coronavirus, the U.S. government must resolve any tax, regulatory or capital barrier preventing a new, trusted source from emerging.

The Pelosi-Schumer plan does nothing to address this frightening situation. The thought that China has this much of a grip on our medicines is totally unacceptable. From the start of his administration, President Trump has worked hard to eliminate US reliance on Chinese products. This proves that he’s right, especially in light of this crisis. This isn’t just a health crisis. It’s a national security crisis, too.

It’s time for Pelosi and Schumer to start putting America first rather than playing partisan games. They’re welcome to join the Put America First Team anytime.

Newt Gingrich is one of the best election analysts in modern history. When he starts talking about the potential for wave elections, I listen. That’s what he’s talking about in this article.

One of the first things he mentions is “The liberal media likes to focus on how many House Republicans are retiring. Somehow this is supposed to make Republicans feel defeated and hopeless. In this context, I was startled recently to hear Congresswoman Elise Stefanik say 2020 was going to be the year of the House Republican woman. She went on to assert that there was a historic record being set for Republican women filing to run for the House.”

Speaker Gingrich then gets into candidate recruitment, online fundraising and a host of other things that give Republicans a distinct advantage. Here’s what he said about candidate recruitment:

I checked in with Chairman Tom Emmer at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and found that, if anything, Stefanik had understated the momentum of new recruits. With House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and the leadership team going all out, the House Republicans are setting a remarkably encouraging series of records.

Consider these numbers: The total number of Republicans filed for House seats so far is 928, according to Federal Elections Commission (FEC) figures – or 188 more than the total at the same time in 2010 (740). The year 2010 matters because it was the last time Nancy Pelosi was kicked out of the majority and Speaker John Boehner led the House GOP to its biggest gain in modern times – with his “where are the jobs” slogan.

Right now, the only accomplishment that the House Democrats can point to is the ratification of President Trump’s USMCA trade agreement. Compared with the things that Republicans can point to during their 2 years in office, the Democrats don’t have much to highlight during the campaign. Then there’s the fundraising portion of this equation:

In the 2018 cycle, this system raised $1.8 billion over the two-year period. When this scale of small-donor involvement was combined with massive donors like Michael Bloomberg (who spent $5 million on ads in the last two weeks in some elections) the Democrats’ money advantage was enormous. This helps explain the Republican House defeats.

The threat posed by the ActBlue system was reinforced in 2019 when it raised more than $1 billion for the Democrats. Republican leaders realized they had to match or exceed the small-dollar system the Democrats had invented. They developed a competitive model called WinRed. The intensity of support for President Trump, combined with growing anger over the Democrats’ investigation and impeachment strategy, has made WinRed a success much faster than anyone expected.

In its first two quarters, WinRed raised $101 million. Its effectiveness is growing rapidly. It raised $31 million in its first quarter of existence and more than doubled that in the second quarter with $70 million (fourth quarter of 2019). In fact, WinRed raised more in its first 190 days than ActBlue raised in its first five years.

The other factor that people haven’t talked about is the fact that most of the competitive seats that Republicans need to flip to return to the majority are seats that President Trump has done well in. It isn’t like Republicans have to flip tons of seats where Democrats traditionally do well in. That, in turn, means that they won’t need to raise as much money as Democrats raise.

House Democrats have to defend why they didn’t get important things done during this Congress. They promised to lower prescription drug prices, fix health care, work on infrastructure and strengthen the economy. They didn’t get any of those things done. They don’t have a list of accomplishments. Democrats have an accomplishment — USMCA. The rest of their time was wasted on impeachment, sour grapes and other waste-of-time investigations. If I were running the NRCC’s messaging, I’d have a single message, which would be “What have you done for me lately?”

It’s time to call Pelosi’s Democrats out. They’re essentially worthless. Democrats spent more time telling us that Iranians really loved Soleimani than they spent in court to compel witnesses that House Democrats said weren’t needed but that Senate Democrats insist are essential. Now Pelosi insists that not calling witnesses that House Democrats didn’t call amounts to a cover-up:

I’d love hearing Pelosi sell that BS to the American people.

Jack Brewer wrote about the black vote in 2020 in this op-ed, noting that “I’m one of those who have become full-fledged supporters of the president and want to see him reelected. Others, like Prince, haven’t endorsed Trump for reelection at this point, but support some of the president’s policies and appreciate what he has done.”

That’s where Brewer starts explaining why he supports President Trump:

We also recognized that while Democrats make big promises to black voters in the run-up to every election, too often those promises are forgotten once the polls close. In part that’s because Democrats take our votes for granted; they just assume the vast majority of black people will vote Democratic. If more of us voted for Republicans, candidates in both parties would do more to compete for our votes.

What good are big promises that aren’t kept? Back in the mid-90s, a men’s religious movement got started by then-University of Colorado Football Coach Bill McCartney. The movement was called Promise Keepers. Its first study book was titled “The Awesome Power of a Promise Kept”. The point behind the book is that keeping promises changes lives.

From another perspective, Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America gained popularity by keeping these promises made to the American people:

On the first day of their majority in the House, the Republicans promised to bring up for vote, eight major reforms:

  1. require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply to Congress;
  2. select a major, independent auditing firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Congress for waste, fraud or abuse;
  3. cut the number of House committees, and cut committee staff by one-third;
  4. limit the terms of all committee chairs;
    ban the casting of proxy votes in committee;
  5. require committee meetings to be open to the public;
  6. require a three-fifths majority vote to pass a tax increase;
  7. guarantee an honest accounting of the Federal Budget by implementing zero base-line budgeting.

In 1994, Republicans took back the House for the first time in 40years. First, Newt’s Republicans stood for something appealing. Next, Newt’s Republicans kept their promises. Third and perhaps most importantly, Newt’s Republicans promised to not exempt themselves from the laws they passed. Period.

Since he took office, President Trump has worked hard to improve the lives of African-Americans. Democrats can complain all they want but that doesn’t change reality. President Trump has put in place policies that are putting smiles on people’s faces. African-Americans have the lowest unemployment rate in their history. Opportunity Zones have brought back wealth into poor neighborhoods, thereby creating middle class employment opportunities.

President Trump is keeping promises and making life better for African-Americans. It isn’t lost on people when comparing Trump’s pro-African-American accomplishments with the Democrats unfulfilled promises. That’s why President Trump is making significant inroads into the African-American community.

Axios insists that President Trump’s fight with the Squad was purely impulsive. I’m not nearly as certain of that. In fact, there’s some pretty solid thinking that this was intentional and well-executed. In an interview with Bill Hemmer, Newt Gingrich explained that President Trump plays chess while his opponents play tic-tac-toe. I tend to believe Gingrich because he’s bested too many people for this to be accidental.

Katie Pavlich seems to think there’s a method to President Trump’s madness, too:

“I think that President Trump making these women the face of the Democratic Party as they want to be. They want to burn it down. They want their socialist policies to reign,” Pavlich said on ‘The Five.’ “Democrats are going to find out a whole lot more about who they are because they’re going to primary them as we just saw.”

Nothing about the Squad’s behavior says that they’re respectful. If anything, their actions signal that they’re extremely disrespectful. These women have made it pretty clear that they aren’t interested in being key parts of the Democratic Party. They want to be the Democratic Party.

Newt’s right. Democrats will likely be united. That isn’t automatically a positive thing, especially in the time of AOC + 3. Uniting around insane things still creates a landslide. Further, Pelosi, the leftist pundits and the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, aka the media, can whine all they want about moderates. Now that the moderates have voted to protect AOC + 3, who will believe that there are still moderate Democrats?

It’s obvious that President Trump doesn’t just want to win re-election. He certainly wants that but he wants to recapture the majority in the House and grow the Republicans’ majority in the Senate. To do that, he’ll need a supercharged GOP coming out of the convention. Based on the fundraising numbers and the numbers of people volunteering at the rallies, I’m betting that President Trump will get his wish.

When it comes to analyzing election cycles, Newt Gingrich has excelled for more than a generation. When he writes an article that talks about a looming Trump landslide, I listen. Speaker Gingrich’s article cites 5 things that point to a Trump re-election landslide: “economy, stature, patriotism, issue insanity, and progress on health issues.” Speaker Gingrich starts with the booming economy.

Gingrich notes that the “lowest African American and Latino unemployment rates recorded in history are beginning to create approval for Trump in those communities that no Republican in modern times has been able to do. The rise in manufacturing jobs and salaries are becoming advantages for President Trump. Meanwhile, the Democrats are campaigning on the economy as though they were in another country. Faced with continuous job and wage growth, it is hard to make a compelling case against the Trump economy.”

Meanwhile, the Democrats’ presidential candidates campaign like we’re living in a country titled Soupline America. They don’t believe their own words. It’s just that they know that admitting that things are going pretty well pretty much dooms their campaigns while the leaders of the Resist Movement simmer as the Trump administration wins another fight. Gingrich notes that President Trump’s economy is the underpinning for everything else.

Issue insanity is beginning to erode the Democrats.

In 1972, McGovern was an outlier. He clearly represented the radical wing of the Democratic Party. It was relatively easy for most Democrats to say, “I am not him.” At the same time, President Nixon, scarred by losing in 1960 and 1962 and having won a very narrow election in 1968, kept Republican resources focused on his re-election and failed to help congressional Republicans. The result was the largest presidential popular vote percentage in modern history (60.7 percent) for the Republican president, while Republicans lost two Senate seats and only gained 12 house seats.

Today is dramatically worse for Democrats than in 1972. Instead of having one likable but wacky left-wing radical, every single candidate in the second debate raised his or her hand for positions that are simply unacceptable to most Americans. If McGovern could be separated out as “the radical” almost 50 years ago, look where we are today. Every plausible nominee has radical positions – and the House and Senate Democrats are voting for radical positions on issue after issue. Furthermore, President Trump has learned the cost of a left-wing Democratic Speaker and will be spending resources to help Kevin McCarthy of California become speaker.

AOC is everything except an official part of the Trump campaign. While she talks about concentration camps, Americans roll their eyes in disbelief. It isn’t that they think that everything is fine at these detention centers. It’s that they don’t believe Democrats’ claims of forcing women to drink from a toilet.

Further, the American people are looking at that situation while wondering why Democrats haven’t worked with President Trump to fix a truly broken immigration system. If there is divided government, the people expect the different parties to work together and fix things. While President Trump offers reasonable proposals, AOC proposes to get rid of ICE, then the Department of Homeland Security and Rashida Tlaib accuses CBP of major human rights violations.

I’ve said for several months that the biggest thing that Republicans have going for them is the Democrats’ nuttiness. It isn’t just that Democrats are wrong on the issues. It’s that they’re crazier than a shithouse rat. We know that Democrats are nuts when AOC accuses Nancy Pelosi of being a racist, then denies that she called the Democrat leader a racist several hours later.

Meanwhile, Democrats criticize the Trump administration for enforcing the laws:

Democrats have become the party that doesn’t believe in enforcing existing laws. To hear AOC talk about it, you’d swear that the people of law enforcement are Nazis. That’s pretty nuts. That’s why Democrats, if they don’t grow a spine and stand up to AOC’s Squad, will get their butts handed to them in November, 2020.

It’s pretty apparent that Democrats don’t give a damn about border security. Any political party that unanimously approves of decriminalizing illegal aliens entering the United States officially is the Open Borders Party. The week before Independence Day, NBC and the DNC (Pardon the repetition) hosted a pair of Democrat presidential debates.

During those debates, each of the Democrat presidential candidates raised their hands in support of decriminalizing illegal aliens entering the US. They didn’t stop there, though, unfortunately. All 20 of these Democrat presidential candidates raised their hands affirming that their national health care laws would provide taxpayer-funded health care to illegal aliens.

Jeh Johnson, President Obama’s final Secretary of Homeland Security, passionately opposes the Democrats’ open border policies:

That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders. That is unworkable, unwise and does not have the support of a majority of American people or the Congress, and if we had such a policy, instead of 100,000 apprehensions a month, it will be multiples of that.

I don’t disagree often with Newt Gingrich but I must this time:

When word spreads that sick people can sneak into America and get free medical treatment from American doctors and nurses, the flood of sick immigrants will double and triple from the current numbers.

It isn’t that I disagree with Newt’s opinion. It’s his choice of words. Right now, illegal aliens don’t have to “sneak” across the border. They can waltz across the border, then apply for asylum. Thanks to Nancy ‘Spark of Divinity’ and Alexandria ‘Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire’ Ocasio-Cortez, illegal aliens are treated better than are our homeless veterans.

Anyone who thinks that this is patriotic is stupid beyond belief. Yes, I’m talking to you, Jessica Tarlov, Tom Perez and Ed Rendell. Predictably, Newt nailed it with this tweet:


Democrats are patriots in some weird, demented way but not in the traditional sense. It’s time to re-establish Reaganite patriotism. It’s been too long since we had that type of patriotism.

AOC’s patriotism is faux patriotism. She wouldn’t recognize Founding Fathers-style patriotism if it bit her backside. The men who signed the Declaration, the men who fought the Revolutionary War and the men who wrote this nation’s Constitution were selfless men. The men who signed the Declaration of Independence knew that they were dead men walking if George Washington’s army didn’t defeat King George’s military.

Can anyone picture AOC doing any of the things that those slaveholders did? Yes, I ‘admitted’ that many were slaveholders. I can’t picture AOC doing anything even close to what those patriots did.

Democrats have been intentionally mangling the meaning of important words. Democrats deny advocating for open borders while providing incentives that would shout to the Northern Triangle nations to flood across the US-Mexico border. Democrats insist that detention facilities are concentration camps and that women are forced to drink from toilets.

It’s impossible to believe that CBP is tormenting women and little girls in the ways that AOC is insisting. It isn’t like AOC has a lengthy history of veracity. Rather, AOC has a history of frequently getting caught lying.

If Republicans want to get things done, they’ll need to toss the gloves and put on brass knuckles. Resistance Democrats fight like Antifa. If we want to lose honorably, (think John McCain) then Republicans will lose often. No more! Tell AOC, Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff that their reign of stupidity and lies is coming to a close in a few months.

Finally, Republicans should adopt President Reagan’s policy towards the USSR. When asked what his policy towards the Soviets was, President Reagan, replied “Simple. We win, they lose.” It’s time to sink the Democrats’ battleship.
