Here is video of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich speaking in Iowa last night, at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition gathering.
“We have an extraordinarily fundamental choice to make about the very future of this country.” He said he believes “this election” and the “conversation around this election may be as central to our future as the conversations in the 1850′s that led to the election of Lincoln in 1860. We are at a crossroads that we cannot hide from.”
Gingrich said that a key moment for him was the decision by the 9th Circuit against saying “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance. It made Gingrich realize how far the Judiciary has moved away from the founding principles of this nation.
Gingrich eloquently summed up the great divide between the Left and those who still believe in truth that America is one nation under God – as expressed in the Declaration of Indpendence which says “we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights . . . “:
“Now why does that matter? Because it means the power comes from God to each one of you – personally! You are personally sovereign. You loan power to the Government. The Government does not loan power to you. And that is the fundamental division between most Americans and the secular, socialist people around Obama, and the degree to which they do not understand America – cannot possible represent America – and cannot lead us to a successful future.”
Gingrich spoke in support of cutting out all funding for Planned Parenthood. He said a President could use Executive Orders to do four things “on the very first day”:
1. Abolish all “Czars” in the White House
2. Reinstate the Reagan ban on all Federal Funding of abortions outside the U.S.
3. Reinstate George W. Bush’s “conscience protection” to allow workers to refuse to do things the Left wants done.
4. Recognize the right of Israel and other nations to determine where they want to have their Capital. This would mean recognizing the Capital of Israel as Jerusalem.
Gingrich said all center-right people must work together to change the governing structure of the Left in America – from the local level to Washington.
This was an outstanding speech! Gingrich can really articulate the conservative message.
