Former Speaker Newt Gingrich
talks about the last Presidential election
A smart friend of mine who is a moderate liberal asked why I was not
recognizing Joe Biden’s victory. The friend made the case that Mr.
Biden had gotten more votes, and historically we recognize the person
with the most votes. Normally, we accept the outcome of elections just
as we accept the outcomes of sporting events.
So, my friend asked why was 2020 different?
Having spent more than four years watching the left “resist” President
Donald Trump and focus entirely on undoing and undermining the 2016
election, it took me several days to understand the depth of my own
As I thought about it, I realized my anger and fear were not narrowly
focused on votes. My unwillingness to relax and accept that the
election grew out of a level of outrage and alienation unlike anything
I had experienced in more than 60 years involvement in public affairs.
The challenge is that I — and other conservatives — are not disagreeing
with the left within a commonly understood world. We live in
The left’s world is mostly the established world of the forces who have
been dominant for most of my life.
My world is the populist rebellion which believes we are being
destroyed, our liberties are being cancelled and our religions are
under assault. (Note the new Human Rights Campaign to decertify any
religious school which does not accept secular sexual values — and that
many Democrat governors have kept casinos open while closing churches
though the COVID-19 pandemic.) We also believe other Democrat-led
COVID-19 policies have enriched the wealthy while crushing middle class
small business owners (some 160,000 restaurants may close).
In this context, let’s talk first about the recent past and the
In 2016, I supported an outsider candidate, who was rough around the
edges and in the Andrew Jackson school of controversial assaults on the
old order. When my candidate won, it was blamed on the Russians. We now
know (four years later) Hillary Clinton’s own team financed the total
lie that fueled this attack.
Members of the FBI twice engaged in criminal acts to help it along —
once in avoiding prosecution of someone who had deleted 33,000 emails
and had a subordinate use a hammer to physically destroy hard drives,
and a second time by lying to FISA judges to destroy Gen. Michael Flynn
and spy on then-candidate Donald Trump and his team. The national
liberal media aided and abetted every step of the way. All this was
purely an attempt to cripple the new president and lead to the
appointment of a special counsel — who ultimately produced nothing.
Now, people in my world are told it is time to stop resisting and
cooperate with the new president. But we remember that the Democrats
wanted to cooperate with Mr. Trump so much that they began talking
about his impeachment before he even took office. The Washington Post
ran a story on Democrat impeachment plots the day of the inauguration.
In fact, nearly 70 Democratic lawmakers boycotted his inauguration. A
massive left-wing demonstration was staged in Washington the day after,
where Madonna announced she dreamed of blowing up the White House to
widespread applause. These same forces want me to cooperate with their
new president. I find myself adopting the Nancy Pelosi model of
constant resistance. Nothing I have seen from Mr. Biden since the
election offers me any hope that he will reach out to the more than 74
million Americans who voted for President Trump.
So, I am not reacting to the votes so much as to the whole election
environment. When Twitter and Facebook censored the oldest and fourth
largest newspaper (founded by Alexander Hamilton) because it accurately
reported news that could hurt Mr. Biden’s chances — where were The New
York Times and The Washington Post? The truth of the Hunter Biden story
is now becoming impossible to avoid or conceal. The family of the
Democrat nominee for president received at least $5 million from an
entity controlled by our greatest adversary. It was a blatant payoff,
and most Americans who voted for Mr. Biden never heard of it — or were
told before the election it was Russian disinformation. Once they did
hear of it, 17% said they would have switched their votes, according to
a poll by the Media Research Center. That’s the entire election. The
censorship worked exactly as intended.
Typically, newspapers and media outlets band together when press
freedom is threatened by censorship. Where was the sanctimonious
“democracy dies in darkness?” Tragically, The Washington Post is now
part of the darkness.
But this is just a start. When Twitter censors four of five Rush
Limbaugh tweets in one day, I fear for the country. When these
monolithic Internet giants censor the President of the United States, I
fear for the country. When I see elite billionaires like Mark
Zuckerburg are able to spend $400 million to hire city governments to
maximize turnout in specifically Democratic districts — without any
regard to election spending laws or good governance standards — I fear
for the country. When I read that Apple has a firm rule of never
irritating China — and I watch the NBA kowtow to Beijing, I fear for
our country. When I watch story after story about election fraud being
spiked — without even the appearance of journalistic due diligence or
curiosity — I know something is sick.
The election process itself was the final straw in creating the crisis
of confidence which is accelerating and deepening for many millions of
Americans. Aside from a constant stream of allegations of outright
fraud, there are some specific outrages — any one of which was likely
enough to swing the entire election. Officials in virtually every swing
state broke their states’ own laws to send out millions of ballots or
ballot applications to every registered voter. It was all clearly
documented in the Texas lawsuit, which was declined by the U.S. Supreme
Court based on Texas’ procedural standing — not the merits of the case.
That’s the election.
In addition, it’s clear that virtually every swing state essentially
suspended normal requirements for verifying absentee ballots. Rejection
rates were an order of magnitude lower than in a normal year. In
Georgia, rejection rates dropped from 6.5% in 2016 to 0.2% in 2020. In
Pennsylvania, it went from 1% in 2016 to .003% in 2020. Nevada fell
from 1.6% to .75%. There is no plausible explanation other than that
they were counting a huge number of ballots — disproportionately for
Mr. Biden — that normally would not have passed muster. That’s the
The entire elite liberal media lied about the timeline of the COVID-19
vaccine. They blamed President Trump for the global pandemic even as he
did literally everything top scientists instructed. In multiple
debates, the moderators outright stated that he was lying about the
U.S. having a vaccine before the end of the year (note Vice President
Mike Pence received it this week). If Americans had known the pandemic
was almost over, that too was likely the difference in the election.
The unanimously never-Trump debate commission spiked the second debate
at a critical time in order to hurt President Trump. If there had been
one more debate like the final one, it likely would have been pivotal.
This is just the beginning. But any one of those things alone is enough
for Trump supporters to think we have been robbed by a ruthless
establishment — which is likely to only get more corrupt and aggressive
if it gets away with these blatant acts. For more than four years, the
entire establishment mobilized against the elected president of the
United States as though they were an immune system trying to kill a
virus. Now, they are telling us we are undermining democracy.
You have more than 74 million voters who supported President Trump
despite everything — and given the election mess, the number could
easily be significantly higher. The truth is tens of millions of
Americans are deeply alienated and angry.
If Mr. Biden governs from the left — and he will almost certainly be
forced to — that number will grow rapidly, and we will win a massive
election in 2022.
Given this environment, I have no interest in legitimizing the father
of a son who Chinese Communist Party members boast about buying. Nor do
I have any interest in pretending that the current result is legitimate
or honorable. It is simply the final stroke of a four-year
establishment-media power grab. It has been perpetrated by people who
have broken the law, cheated the country of information, and smeared
those of us who believe in America over China, history over
revisionism, and the liberal ideal of free expression over cancel
I write this in genuine sorrow, because I think we are headed toward a
serious, bitter struggle in America. This extraordinary, coordinated
four-year power grab threatens the fabric of our country and the
freedom of every American.

where only 28% of them had been vaccinated! CRAZY. And regarding

not yet been subject to "double-blind cross-over studies. Also

who became dominant in most of America’s colleges and universities
after the 1960s have been teaching a biased and distorted view of
The New York Times’ recent “1619 Project” is a prime example.
to the “1619 Project,” the key to understanding America is not freedom,
but slavery—and the Project’s main goal is to inject this false
teaching into the curricula of America’s K–12 schools.
Imagine young minds in classrooms all over American learning this. Does
it make you as concerned as it does me?
given this trend in American education, is it any wonder that our young
people feel less of a patriotic attachment to our nation and are
increasingly attracted—out of ignorance—to failed ideas such as
socialism, ideas that are destructive of liberty?
sign of the “progressive” Left’s influence is the continuing attempt to
erase our American heritage by destroying monuments, renaming schools
and streets, and censoring works of literature in the name of
The Left knows that it cannot
remake society according to its ever-evolving idea of “progress” until
it has “canceled” patriotism and hollowed out the idea that we should
be grateful for our blessings to the great men and women of the
past—many of whom are depicted on the cards I’d like to send you.
This is why we are engaging the Left on the battlefield of education …
and why your generous support is needed right away.
After all, those on the Left are extremely well-funded, thanks to
liberal billionaires like George Soros and his ilk.
the support of citizens like you—citizens who understand the importance
of education to liberty—we are ramping up its outreach efforts on
behalf of liberty, especially to our nation’s youth.
is even more urgent that we do so in the face of efforts such as The
New York Times’ “1619 Project” that undermine patriotism and lead to an
increased pull toward socialism.
Hillsdale is the only
educational institution in America that is reaching and teaching
millions of citizens of all ages, from coast to coast, about America’s
great heritage of liberty.
Your generous support today will...
Expand the circulation of Imprimis, Hillsdale’s digest of liberty, to
reach millions more Americans (you can also receive a free subscription
of Imprimis…for life).
• Send millions of
pocket-size copies of America’s founding documents to schools across
America, and to members of our armed forces, who have sworn to defend
• Increase the number of
citizens (especially younger Americans) enrolling in Hillsdale’s free
online courses such as “Constitution 101” and “The Great American
Story: A Land of Hope.”
• Launch and support more
and more Hillsdale-affiliated classical K-12 charter schools
nationwide, returning excellence to American K-12 education and
impacting thousands of our youngest citizens.
One other thing you should be aware of…
I mentioned, to maintain our independence, we do all of this
liberty-defending work while refusing EVERY PENNY of government
funding—even indirectly in the form of federal or state student grants
and loans. NOT. ONE. PENNY.
So, your support is even more
crucial to ensuring that future generations of Americans will be
educated in American civics and prepared to defend freedom.

The Left is
going all out, as illustrated by The New York Times’ “1619 Project.” It
is urgent that we engage forcefully on the battlefield of education …
which is why your support is needed today.
Because as always, our only sure defense is an educated citizenry
prepared to defend liberty—no matter the cost.

as we learned in first year of Medical School: "Pis and Pus Must Come
Out". And It Will...in the coming weeks and months.
only question is whether the many tens of millions of Americans who
voted for Donald Trump, who are convinced of the Illegitimacy of the
result, and who are now suppressed in their First Amendment rights to
express their opinion by the despotic Left, will have the patience and
self-control to await an ultimate and fair accounting. In my opinion,
the answer to that question is now entirely in the hands of Pelozi and
Schumer and Biden and the Leftist crazies. If they continue their
stupid and outrageous antics, we will have rampant civil unrest - and
quite possibly civil war.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS...'LEST WE FORGET.
video clips of Democratic, Liberal, Leftist and just plain psychotic
politicians, media and Hollywood types attacking Donald Trump,
beginning with his announcement for the Presidency five years ago.
No Worry, we won't forget - because it's getting worse.
now, the stakes for the nation are much higher, since we no longer have
a clarifying national election to look forward to. And now we are even
threatened if we express ourselves freely.
This will not end well.

while a Federal investigation of the entire election process is
performed, openly and acceptably by The People. I don't think that
Biden is smart enough to do that. And if not, I don't think that The

get their revenge and restore their control - of the election process
