Newt gives his thoughts on a number of topics, including his Twitter suspension, the bills Democrats hope to pass, and the threat of China.
Mornings with Maria
March 5, 2021
Let me say before that, in terms of your last segment, I just got suspended by Twitter so I’m part of the censored group because I did a tweet saying that having illegal immigrants come in without any controls is a public health issue in the time of COVID. So, I just want to report I’m part of the same effort by Twitter to censor the country on its own terms.
Well, we’ve actually submitted a request for Twitter to explain the principles by which they chose to suspend me but of course they have power right now. What they’re doing, what all these big companies are doing, is they’re setting the stage for a real populace backlash that will either make them liable to lawsuits or have real controls over them or break them up. I mean, Twitter’s behaving as though it’s a dictatorship and it’s not. Let me go to HR-1. You are going to see this again and again. The Democrats have these fancy names positive names. HR-1 should be called the professional politicians corrupt election act because that’s what it is. It’s an effort to create an environment really based on the history of Tammany hall in New York, the Philadelphia machine, Chicago, what the California Democrats have evolved. This is an effort to say you’re not going to know who’s voting. There won’t be a requirement to purge the rolls of people who are dead. There won’t be ability to control for example, the Service Employee’s Union which might be servicing a nursing home, going around to all of the senior citizens in that home and giving them a chance to vote with the person who takes care of them picking up the ballot. Now, you know it’s just human nature that that creates a biased environment and an environment frankly of some fear and some intimidation. Yet this bill on every front they have managed to take a position that the American people oppose, and I think it is madness what they’re doing, and I think the number of marginal Democrats — the last two times the Democrats had the White House, we picked up 54 seats in 1994, we picked up 63 seats in 2010. I think they’re setting themselves up for that kind of a disastrous election because they’re trotting all of their marginal members out and getting them to vote for things that they will not be able to defend when they go back up. Who wants to have the government paying for politicians? This bill does. Who wants to have 16-year-olds voting? This bill does. You go right down the list.
Well, think of it this way. The recall petition in California actually requires that you be able to identify every single signature. So, we have a stricter standard for recalling the governor of California than we have for voting in a general election. But look, if you are a liberal Democrat, you figure the younger they are, the less they know, the more likely you are to get their vote. This is a deliberate effort to flood the system and I think it will be stopped in the Senate and I think also it’s an enormous overreach to go out there and say to all 50 states that Uncle Sam sitting in Washington will now dictate — it’s kind of funny. So, the Nancy Pelosi team in Washington will dictate how you’re going to vote while the California internet giants dictate what you’re allowed to say and then they’re going to think that’s a free society. I think people will reject it.
I should have mentioned by the way that – at Gingrich360 we’re going to have podcasts both on HR-1, the election fraud bill and on Dr. Seuss. My theory is that the team that favors Dr. Seuss and wants to tear down the fence will beat the team that wants to abolish Dr. Seuss and keep a fence around the capitol. But that’s just an aside. The number one ally of the Chinese Communist Party in the United States is the teacher’s union. The damage we are doing to a generation of children because of the teacher union’s terrible attitude and terrible work rules is in fact potentially going to make it impossible for us to compete with China. I mean, they’re working very hard, they’re very disciplined. They require people to learn in school. They actually are investing rationally. Meanwhile, we are totally mired down in a political disaster. We have public schools in which not a single student, not one, has passed any kind of exam. We now have the kids not even going to the schools. And we think we’re going to compete with China? I mean, this — we need a serious national discussion of whether we want to be a serious country and we want to be the leading country in the world, or whether decaying into corruption and ignorance is an acceptable American future because that’s what we’re getting. You look at the damage done to the current generation of children, it’s unbelievable.
Look, when you come down to it, first of all, President Biden who offers to take questions and is then cut off while talking to the House Democrats has to lead you to believe that he’s in such a cocoon, who knows what he really thinks. The fact is, how is he going to be for the reforms we need? They’re more worried at the Pentagon I don’t know right now about white supremacists in uniform which is a major threat to the United States is an absurdity. We were told that we have to be worried. Yesterday there was going to be an effort to have a coup which didn’t show up. The military has been told it’s more important that they go through and investigate themselves than that they prepare to defeat the Chinese. The Navy has a team which was adopting a pledge that was an absurdly woke, the kind of thing you think that a woke military is going to take on the Chinese Communists and win? This is going to be — this crisis was growing even under Trump. I mean you have a system today which has inherited old institutions and has inherited hugely obsolete bureaucracies but they’re very good at protecting themselves and they’re competing with an intelligent, ruthless commitment by the Chinese Communist Party to try to run the world and I think we are in very substantial trouble.
Senator Rick Scott made it very clear. There are races we’re going to win next year over incumbent Democratic Senators, we’re going to win it in part because they can’t vote for this stuff and go home and get reelected. As that becomes more obvious, you’ll see a lot of stuff collapse in the Senate, and I predict within a few weeks you’re going to see Nancy Pelosi lose control of the floor. She is spending the future of 40 or 50 House Democrats who are going to get beat because of her policies.
