Newt Gingrich: Delusional anti-
Trump forces are wrong to predict
a Republican civil war

Original Article

Posted By: ragu, 1/17/2021 12:05:58 AM

Various left-wing writers (some of them nominally Republican) have been salivating over the prospects of a GOP civil war. Nothing would make them happier than to see Republicans tearing each other apart in a fight over President Trump and the future of the GOP. However, this will not happen. It is a sign of how self-delusional the anti-Trump forces are that they could look at the House of Representatives vote on impeaching President Trump (for the second time) and convince themselves this is the harbinger of a Republican civil war. The House voted 232-197 Wednesday to impeach the president. Every

Any tension within the Republican Party will rapidly be replaced by anger at left-wing Democrats

Newt is in Italy and has no feel for what is going on. The establishment Republicans have betrayed the people. The Republicans do not hold the Democrats accountable, so there is no one to do it. I will never support McConnell or Liz Cheney or McCarthy. They stuck a knife in the back of Trump, so they deserve the same.

One thing in life I would very much like to see people learn is not to panic and go off in unfounded directions. Especially now when thought and regrouping are things we need. Assess what has been learned and apply it accordingly. In simple terms, get your shinola together and come back.

Can't wait to change to being an Independent. If Trump forms a new party, Count me in. I hate to say it Newt, but i have had these Republicans like Mitt Romney. Collins. Liz Cheney .right up to my ears. I really don't care if the Democrat take the Congress in 2022 as long as it gets rid of these back stabbing butt heads.

When the security guard comes to your desk and hands you a cardboard box, that isn't a "civil war." When stockholders vote out underperforming directors, that isn't a" civil war." When members of a political party refuse to renominate incumbents who no longer reflect their values, that isn't a "civil war "either.

I find Newt is usually one of the more sensible and pragmatic thinkers in DC, but I think he is off base on this. He’s right that there won’t be a civil war. However, that is because the Republican Party is now a zombie. It would be interesting to see how many Republicans have changed their voter affiliation to independent in the last 2 weeks. The time is ripe for the birth of a new party, if we could find viable candidates. The Republicans are going to be a minority party for a long time going forward. By ensuring our votes don’t count, there’ll be a lot of disgusted folks staying home and not voting.

Before the 2022 midterms we will hear from the pundits that this coming election is the most important in our lives and that we must return the republicans to the majority or its all over. We hear that lie over and over and over again. Winning and then holding on to power is just not in the republican parties DNA. There were enough never Trumper republicans who hated Trump so much that they were willing to bring about the downfall of America rather than see him reelected. They got their wish and I seriously wonder if America can survive what will be the continuation of Obama's goal of bringing America to its knees.

#9, you are right on. Every election we hear how this is the one that will break the nation. Well, it does not work anymore. The republican party let us down and I know that many in PA said that will not vote and watch the republican party die. I'm waiting too President Trump to start a new political party and I will follow.

If Trump couldn't win against all the voter fraud in 2020 why would anyone think that he could win with a third party in 2024 against the two existing parties AND voter fraud? The dims got away with it so why wouldn't they get away with it in 2024?

The easiest way to replace the Republican Party is to follow the progressive/Marxist roadmap which they used to create their party. They took over an existing party. There effort took them a while, from the 1960’s to the election of Obama in 2008. We have the plan, we have 75 million supporters, if we flood all the polling places in the US with serious monitors who will not be intimated or thrown out, we might be able to achieve victory in one or two election cycles. The Republican Party is the vessel we need to create a Constitutional Party.

I’m not and never will be a Republican. If we don’t take this opportunity to form a new political party at this moment in time, we don’t deserve to keep our Republic. Both parties are corrupt to the core. You cannot reform the Republican Party. If you haven’t learned after this, you are never going to learn. Go ahead, keep watching Fox News and keep voting Republican, but you will be doing it without me and many other MAGA Patriots.

A civil war within the Republican Party assumes that conservative voters think its worth fighting to keep the GOP alive, and that's just not the case. If we take the example of a failed marriage; Republican voters are the equivalent of the husband that goes out for a pack of cigarettes. There's nothing at "home" to go back to.

Never-Trumpers are entitled establishment power brokers, who are livid that their power and influence have been lessened by the Trump movement. Newt is one of those who has been diminished. Because these people are in this group-think bubble, they really don't know they have lost their base and lost their party. They continue to use the same old tried and true techniques to manipulate their deplorable patriots. If Romney, McConnell, Collins, Sasse, Murkowski, and Toomey stay entrenched, we have no voice and no party. Have them push for term limits and/or retire, and then we might vote republican again! I have decided I will even vote for a democrat to beat out my senator Bill Cassidy and my representative Garrett Graves, because an entrenched republican is just as dangerous.

Newtie is correct. There will be no civil war in the GOPe... we're just leaving. They can do what they want. The rest of us real conservatives will figure out what to do as we go along. "Oh," you say, "but you must remain with the GOPe so we can be unified against the Democrats and have more power and make a comeback." NO. Wait, that's not right...my answer is HELL, NO. I'm 60. My entire lifetime we have supported the GOPe with money, with volunteering, whatever. We held our noses and voted for stupid characters like Kelly Loeffler time and time and time again. DECADES we have done this. Then finally, we get a President whom the GOPe didn't want but whom we did, and who governed more conservatively and got more done than anybody ever imagined he would. And the GOPe supported him...sulkily, and with words, but no actions save a tweet here or there from Ronna McDaniel. So. We. Are. Done. "You can't just leave!" you cry. "You need us to make your vote count...you'll be throwing it away if you don't stick with us!" Oh, yeah? We had the best President of our lifetimes headed for a slam frickin' dunk of a re-election, and not only didn't he win, but we continued the loss of the House and then lost the Senate. So to sum up, Democrats have control of the Presidency (with the specter of Kamala Harris lurking as VP) and both Houses of Congress, and with John Roberts, possibly SCOTUS. This is the worst possible time for this to occur. If we ever have free and fair elections again in the US, which I *highly* doubt, I will vote for the most conservative candidate or not vote. If that person is a Republican, fine. But no longer will I have anything to do with the GOPe, in any way. I am done. Any psychologist will tell you that when you have a relationship of a giver and a taker, when the giver has given and given and given and given and given so much that he/she finally snaps and walks out, there is no reconciling. That person is DONE. That person now is me. My bags are packed, I've removed the few pieces of furniture that were dear to me, and the taxi is waiting. In the words of the old Lorrie Morgan sing - if you think I won't go, just watch me. I wish y'all remaining GOPe'ers all the best. Not totally, because I can't wish best wishes to your candidates like Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney and Liz Cheney. But as much as I can, I do. Goodbye.

Nope, no civil war within the GOP will occur, and as the above comments clearly illustrate quite a few dependable supporters of the GOP will not be giving their money and vote to GOP candidates in future elections. Also, as long as Dominion is allowed to have their contracts and machines in place and vote by mail is permitted, no future election anywhere will be credible. This election may have seen 74 million people vote for Trump but that does not mean all 74 million will support a 3rd party started by Trump or someone who espouses his ideas. It simply means the GOP no longer has any relevance in the near or medium-term (I suspect long term as well).

I changed my affiliation to independent during the Romney campaign, and haven't changed it back since. They have done nothing to earn my support back. My US rep, a supposed Republican, just sent out an e-mail saying Trump was responsible for the Capitol fiasco and probably committed an impeachable offense. I sent him back a nastygram for whatever good it might do. I may vote for the democrat next time he runs.

Newt is obviously out of touch. The Republican party is nearly dead now and just needs somebody to blow it over. We the voters have been unhappy with them since they took up the habit of Obama-worship and their abandonment of President Trump just struck the killing blow. Honest elections or not, they are finished.

I agree with the poster who said we should not start a new party but take over the one we have. We need to organize like we did earlier with the Tea Party and elect our own as Republicans. Eliminate the GOPe and replace with GOPmaga. And first things first. Support ouster of Newsome as California governor. Replace Pelosi as speaker. Then work for local, state, and federal change within the GOPe. It will be hard sometimes to identify who these people are because they lie to get our votes. We need to open our eyes and know who we are voting for. Don't just listen but look at the record. If the person has no political history, look at the person. We need to know the judges, commissioners, and legislators we are voting for. Make sure the right people are running for office. Don't just vote R. Easier said than done but I am willing to try as hard as I can.

In "Revelations" (3:16), a Man much greater than I said it well: "So, because you are lukewarm ---neither hot nor cold --- I am about to spit you out of My mouth.” This is how I feel about the Republican party now. I get the concept of "the big tent" and all that but too many clowns are now running the circus! I have to break bread with Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Lisa M., and now Mitch!? No thanks. Not a dime for the RNC from me anymore. I've walked out just like Rhett did ... and frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!

There won't be a civil war because Trump supporters will leave and the GOPe will retain control of a greatly-diminished, permanent-minority party.

Keep whistling past that graveyard, Newtie. The GOP will be torn asunder, deservedly so. This is 1964 again, and you should know better. Does the GOP honor its promise of smaller, less expensive government taking less tax and promulgating fewer regulations to expand the prosperity of Americans? Or does it pass multi-trillion dollar stimulus packages it cannot begin to pay with real money, damn the consequences? Does the exposure of the UNIPARTY/GOPe, led by our heroes Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy, matter? The grassroots Republicans are seeing the GOP for what it has become, a partner of the Democrats engaged in a giant kabuki fraud to bilk Americans and spread it around, after lots of "Big Guys" take their vigorish. I think you're relying on the "fool the people" game too much, too often. If the Republican party offers really no more than the McCain/Romney/Graham world view, what's its point, its raison d'être? Today's Republican party is little more than a foot dragging ally to the liberal Democrats in terms of social issues. It doesn't even paint in pastels these days. If the Republicans win a majority in two years it will only be because the public fears the future, wanting to put a foot on the brakes to slow it down. Liberals are like rust, they never sleep. Republicans are like paint applied over rust. It doesn't take long before the paint flakes off and the rust emerges having spread further.

Make the Republicans insignificant by leaving them. I'm not a Republican any longer but one thing is for certain I'm waiting for a new party, just say when. In the next voting cycle the remaining (r)epublicans will find out how all the voters abandon them and they will lose to the democrats or a new party. Civil war? There will be none I wouldn't fight to save any part of the republicans. The democrats and republicans are a Uniparty like two gangs with different turf and gang tattoos. The time is right for President Trump to start a new party of patriot constitutionalist. It's in front of our eyes the republicans will find out what it's like to stab 75+ million voters in the back. First we have to rid the nation of those Dominion voting machines and no paper ballots outlaw them both or there will never be another legal election.

Talk of no third party is like talk of electing Republicans who “reach across the aisle.” It may have once been a viable strategy, but that was decades ago. The current state of elections in this country will never allow any Republican to win, so attempts to “rebuild” the party are pointless. No, the Uniparty has us exactly where they want us, and they don’t intend to let that change, ever again. But, freedom is in the DNA of all humans, and like all tyrannical regimes, this one will eventually fall. We just don’t know when. It might not be in my lifetime. In the meantime, we do what we do best: go into the socio-political catacombs. Stay under the radar, organize, patiently grow our numbers, and do night raids. Heck, we might as well have some fun before we’re carted off to the re-education camps. To my thinking, a third party isn’t about winning—although with Trump at the head, you just never know—but rather having a deliberate hand in whatever was going to happen in the election, anyway. If Republicans lose, so be it. They will never again be able to court my vote with promises of conservatism and then stab me in the back as soon as they get to Whorehouse, DC.

Newt could be in DC right in the middle of this and he still wouldn't have a clue #1. Maybe he should be more worried about why Obama's PM buddy's government is collapsing right now. All those DC elites are so tone deafened when it comes to the anger of the voters right now. Deaf, Dumb and Blinded to reality is not a good look for you Mr. Newt.

Logically this is just stupid. THIS was the final battle for the Republican Party to do it's job or fail and drag the country down with it. They utterly failed. Now nothing matters. Political parties are meaningless, the Constitution is meaningless and every political position that opposes a globalist/corrupt Capitalism position is meaningless. Even if battered American citizens wanted to try and gather the shredded Republican remnants together for a 'new,' 'reborn,' republican party, IT WOULD NOT MATTER. The Chinese Communists have won, Newt. You will be lucky to survive the next 5 years and I mean that literally. THEY control the ballot box, the justice system, the financial system and now the government. They have always had the media and the educational system for the last 60 years, now they have it all. Enough republicans knew THIS was the moment, but they didn't have the guts to put their personal careers on the line. They think they will be the last ones they come for. Like most things they are probably wrong about that as well. Newt is trying to blow up a burst balloon, but even an optimist has to understand what was lost on November 3rd. On Wednesday it will be official. In many ways well deserved. The left's betrayal has been apparent for decades to normal people. Now everyone can see how many from the republican party joined them to destroy the country and make no mistake, the USA is in the process of being destroyed. The damage is far worse than most realize or admit, but it will soon be clear now that the scum has won.

My heart goes out to Rush. And with prayers excessive. I' m not far behind you Rush. Rush feels he has failed. He was always trying to win the argument. That is not what this is about. This includes you policy man Newt. Democrats are out to win elections not policy arguments. Well whoopee Rush you won the argument after 30 years of broadcasting your beliefs and look at the results. A socialist, communist America with no free speech. Yet, you won an argument. What a joke. You are a joke Newt, and all you argument winners. We could have won Rush if you had endorsed conservatives like McDaniel in MS, but no you stayed neutral winning arguments with no endorsements of people. Well there we are, lost in a field of people like Newt. Still tryting to win arguments, the Democrats control the House, Senate and Presidency with the arugument of socialism and stomping on the grav es of our patriots who who fought for America and the constitution. I spit on this mess.

I replied that I will donate directly to the candidates of my choice and none to corporate. My choices are those that stood with the President and I am keeping lists of who was and is naughty and nice in case my memory fails me.

The report is buried in the “local” and “legal” sections of the Washington Post website, as archived by The National Pulse here. Written by three non-political reporters, the Washington Post story illustrates just how out of control the blatant misinformation about “incitement” by the President has been over the past two weeks. “Self-styled militia members from Virginia, Ohio and other states made plans to storm the U.S. Capitol days in advance of the Jan. 6 attack, and then communicated in real time as they breached the building on opposite sides and talked about hunting for lawmakers, according to court documents

Various left-wing writers (some of them nominally Republican) have been salivating over the prospects of a GOP civil war. Nothing would make them happier than to see Republicans tearing each other apart in a fight over President Trump and the future of the GOP. However, this will not happen. It is a sign of how self-delusional the anti-Trump forces are that they could look at the House of Representatives vote on impeaching President Trump (for the second time) and convince themselves this is the harbinger of a Republican civil war. The House voted 232-197 Wednesday to impeach the president. Every

In addition to the fact that Trump openly called for the “cheering on” of Congressman, and “peaceful” protests, the timeline as established from numerous, establishment media reports simply doesn’t stack up. The admission that House and Senate security leaders failed to provide Capitol Police with resources on the day will raise questions over their role in the day’s events.

Two of those off-duty police officers from Rocky Mount, Virginia, who allegedly attended the Wednesday rally that turned into a deadly riot, were placed on administrative leave pending review, WSLS reported. The department also notified federal authorities.“The Town of Rocky Mount fully supports all lawful expressions of freedom of speech and assembly by its employees but does not condone the unlawful acts that occurred that day,” the department said in a press release Sunday.

Dominion Voting Systems has filed a defamation lawsuit against attorney Sidney Powell, seeking more than $1.3 billion in damages for what it is calling the "wild" and "demonstrably false" allegations Powell has spread. In the wake of the November presidential election, Powell has alleged that the Dominion machines played a significant part in allowing the election to be stolen from President Trump. Powell, a former federal prosecutor, has argued the machines allowed vote manipulation to occur in significant figures. She also spoke, on several occasions, about the company's alleged ties to communist money coming from Venezuela. In December, Dominion sent

A day after Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said that he would not object to the upcoming certification of the states’ electoral college votes, President Donald Trump on Monday set his sights on the potential 2024 presidential candidate for refusing to join 11 current and incoming senators in challenging President-elect Joe Biden‘s 2020 election win. “How can you certify an election when the numbers being certified are verifiably WRONG,” the president tweeted Monday morning. “You will see the real numbers tonight during my speech, but especially on JANUARY 6th. @SenTomCotton Republicans have pluses & minuses, but one thing is sure, THEY

How pandemic policy has benefited the corporate elite. If one were to consider the upward transfer of wealth and market share to Big Business since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, one would think such economic changes were intended. After all, it’s no secret that the interests of politicians and the corporate elite align more often than not. America’s small businesses currently face an attack on all fronts. As we near a year of lockdowns and sheltering in place, the long-term effects of pandemic policy on the economy are becoming clearer. Almost every piece of legislation ostensibly designed to curb

PHILADELPHIA President Donald Trump’s legal team suffered yet another defeat in court Friday as a federal appeals court in Philadelphia roundly rejected the campaign's latest effort to challenge the state’s election results. Trump’s lawyers vowed to appeal to the Supreme Court despite the judges' assessment that the “campaign’s claims have no merit.” “Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here,” 3rd Circuit Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee, wrote for the three-judge panel

The state is considered a key battleground state, with CBS News Battleground Tracker showing Biden with a slight edge over Mr. Trump in Florida and the state is deemed a toss-up. The multi-million-dollar injection of cash from Bloomberg, who was among the Democrats who vied for the party's presidential nomination, will be spent through Democratic groups, including Bloomberg's Independence USA, and used to turnout voters for Biden in the Sunshine State.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is explicitly pointing his finger at President Donald Trump for helping to spur the attack on the Capitol by the outgoing president’s supporters. The Kentucky Republican said Tuesday on the Senate floor, “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.” McConnell spoke six days after the Democratic-led House impeached Trump on charges of inciting the Jan. 6 attack. A Senate trial on whether to convict Trump and perhaps bar him from ever again holding federal office is expected to begin in coming days. After years of supporting Trump

Ex-U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said Tuesday that President Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen “precipitated the riots” at the Capitol. In his first television interview since his ouster and break from Trump, Barr blamed the violent riots on the weeks-long effort to cast doubt on President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the November vote. “That was the thing that precipitated the riots on the Hill’,” Barr told the British ITV network. Barr stopped short of accusing his ex-boss of inciting the mob of supporters, but he didn’t refute it either. “I’ll leave it to the people who are looking

Those of you who are reading this post are the type of people who pay attention to things. That’s why you already know that 26,000 National Guard troops drawn from all over America and from Puerto Rico, have assembled in Washington, D.C., in advance of Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday. (That’s about three divisions worth of troops.) But have you given serious thought to what the troops’ presence means?

At the Major Joseph R. “Beau” Biden III National Guard Center, named after his son who died of brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46, the former veep’s voice broke and he shed a tear as he told a crowd of supporters that Delaware was “written on his heart.” “Ladies and gentlemen, I only have one regret:

Chief Justice John Roberts is eager to avoid presiding over Donald Trump's second impeachment trial–after he became a lightning rod during the first one. Just as the Senate is seeking to ascertain how it might proceed with an impeachment trial without blowing up the start of Joe Biden's term, the Supreme Court could face its own business being rearranged. The Constitution states that 'When the President of the United States is tried the Chief Justice shall preside.' But with the Senate having been in recess since the House voted to impeach, the trial will occur when Trump is no longer in office
