Intellectually fearless and a perennial visionary and historian, Newt Gingrich is the foremost economic, social, environmental and political thinker in America today. He is well-known as the architect of the "Contract with America" that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in forty years. After he was elected Speaker, he disrupted the status quo by moving power out of Washington and back to the American people. Under his leadership, Congress passed welfare reform, passed the first balanced budget in a generation, and passed the first tax cut in sixteen years. In addition, the Congress restored funding to strengthen our defense and intelligence capabilities, an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission.

But there is a lot more to Newt Gingrich than these remarkable achievements. As an author, Speaker Gingrich has published twenty-three books including 13 fiction and non-fiction New York Times best-sellers. Newt has also become one of the most highly sought-after public speakers, accepting invitations to speak before many of the most prestigious organizations in the world. Because of his own unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Speaker Gingrich is able to share unique and unparalleled insights on a wide range of topics. His audiences find him to be not only an educational but also an inspirational speaker.

    Five Myths About The Founding Fathers

    (The Washington Post) - From Athens and Rome to the present day, all great societies have founding myths — stories they tell themselves about who they are and where they came from. Perhaps because the United States is younger than most nations (239 years old on Saturday), our founding is among the best-documented. We’re fortunate to have thousands of pages of letters, speeches and other writings from our founders, recording their thoughts and debates as they played out. It’s a sign of how politically powerful and historically important the American founding was — and still is — that deeply rooted myths persist today. As we celebrate Independence Day, here are a few of the biggest myths about the Founding Fathers.

    How To Fix The Federal Prison System

    (Washington Times) - Of all the hot-button issues that divided conservatives and liberals over the past generation, few sparked more heated debate than crime and punishment.

    In the past decade, however, that has changed. In a remarkable political turnaround, criminal justice reform has emerged as a rare area of bipartisan agreement in an otherwise sharply divided Congress. We are delighted that both parties are working together to find solutions to the crisis in our justice system. And we are particularly proud that conservatives have taken a leadership role in the effort.

    Gingrich: I Don’t Want To Repeal ObamaCare, And Neither Does Congress

    By: Michael Tennant

    (The New American) - Although he’s found that ObamaCare isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich doesn’t think it should be repealed outright — and, he added, neither do congressional Republicans, notwithstanding their rhetoric to the contrary.

    “Even the best estimate for ObamaCare is that at a very high cost it is extending the number of people who are insured by a small number,” Gingrich said during aninterview with USA Today’s Jayne O’Donnell at the World Health Care Congress in Washington, D.C., March 25.

    Gingrich is correct. As The New American reported in January, the latest Congressional Budget Office projections have the federal government spending nearly $2 trillion over the next decade to insure fewer than half of uninsured Americans.
