Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich is one of the smartest men who has served this nation in government. He is Thomas Jefferson/Mozart smart. A former history professor, Gingrich understands that politics emanates from culture.
The very fact that pop culture, academia, the media, and entertainment are all left wing in this nation has more to do with the way we govern ourselves than any vote for any candidate cast in the last election.

Ask yourself, do the people I know who agree with me politically generally have the same cultural tastes as I do? You’ll most likely find the answer to be yes because there is a direct and unavoidable correlation between the two concepts. Gingrich gets this.
Newt: “Last week Senate Republicans released a supplement to their recent report on Hunter’s Biden’s overseas business dealings. The five-page addendum shows millions of dollars in wire transfers further tying Joe Biden’s son to the Chinese government. I bring this up not to focus on Hunter or Joe Biden, but rather to note that if this story was about one of President Trump’s sons, then it would be on the front page of every major newspaper. But it was hardly covered, because the left-wing media are overwhelmingly hostile to the president — as are the social media companies that now have nearly monopolistic control over the flow of information. They want Trump to fail and to protect Biden, so they distort their coverage accordingly. Add academia, Hollywood, and the majority of political elites to the mix, and you have the ingredients for a powerful system in control of our cultural institutions, trying to impose a radical, far-left agenda on the American people.”
It must get to you. It gets to me and every other free, for now, American. And this election made it worse, as we see just how far the rot has spread to the very basis of what this country stands for and how its government operates. For right now, it doesn’t operate for you. It operates to take your money and tell you what to think and how to live your life, a life it doesn’t trust you with. Gingrich comprehends the problem.
“In this environment, many Republicans and conservatives can feel powerless, even helpless. And they have good reason to feel this way: A political and cultural machine is running roughshod over their objections. This has become clear in the wake of the election this month. Tens of millions of Americans have suspicions about how the votes have been tallied and just want to ensure our elections are honest. Because without honest elections, our other freedoms will quickly fade away. And yet, Democrats, the anti-Trump media, and the rest of this machine are saying: We don’t care. Just sit down, shut up, and take it. This imposition of course extends beyond the election. Americans turn on their televisions and see people in power, many with cushy lives, calling their country systemically racist but denigrating God and the Bill of Rights.” And some Republicans have been part of the problem.
“In recent years before President Trump entered the political arena, when the Republican Party was led by the likes of John McCain and Mitt Romney, Republicans were more concerned about being nice than winning these fights. They were perfectly content to lose nobly and seemed to take pride in it.”
If we have any chance at national renewal the Republican Party must man up and change the way it fights for the citizenry. Its operatives lost a race for President Trump last month. If we’re not careful, over the next four years, we’ll lose a bigger conflict: The battle for America.
