Newt Gingrich

Datum narození: 17. červen 1943

Newt Gingrich je politik ze Spojených států amerických, který byl 58. předsedou Sněmovny reprezentantů Spojených států amerických v letech 1995–1999. Vystudoval historii na Tulaneově univerzitě. Působil jako pedagog, od roku 1979 zasedá ve sněmovně. V současnosti je politickým konzultantem a píše knihy. Je členem Republikánské strany a ve sněmovně reprezentoval Georgii.

Gingrich je dvakrát rozvedený a byl usvědčen z nevěry, což mu jeho kritici často vyčítají. Kritizován je i za to, že v roce 2008, kdy propukla finanční krize, vzal přes 1,6 milionu dolarů jako honorář za poradenské služby pro hypoteční agenturu Freddie Mac, jejíž představitele viní Americká komise pro cenné papíry a burzy z podvodů.

Gingrich je praktikujícím katolíkem. Prosazuje politiku omezené federální vlády a vyrovnaného rozpočtu.

V květnu 2011 oznámil, že se v roce 2012 bude ucházet o úřad prezidenta Spojených států amerických. V lednu 2012 slíbil v případě zvolení do konce tohoto desetiletí vybudovat trvalou základnu na Měsíci a také více zaměření na rozvoj vesmírného průmyslu.

„Certainly, it is important to be polite, and nobody should think that using racial or ethnic slurs is acceptable. But political correctness has morphed from a desire to avoid needlessly offending people to a tool of the Left to marginalize and vilify reasonable Americans who disagree with the elite liberal agenda.“ Understanding Trump

„Lincoln... as a volunteer in an Indian war in which he never fired a shot. Yet he checked every major book on war out of the Library of Congress and began educating himself. He tried a series of generals. He replaced them when they failed, and he promoted them when they succeeded. It was a painful, expensive, but effective way to build an army and win a war.

Tocqueville in his travels had noted this American pattern of approaching new challenges by gathering facts and then methodically trying out solutions until discovering what works.“

„I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.“ Understanding Trump

„In order to make way for one of the world’s most luxurious buildings…’ Even though the publicity was almost entirely negative, there was a great deal of it, and that drew a tremendous amount of attention to Trump Tower. Almost immediately we saw an upsurge in the sales of apartments. I’m not saying it’s a good thing, and in truth it probably says something perverse about the culture we live in. But I’m a businessman, and I learned a lesson from that experience: good publicity is preferable to bad, but from a bottom-line perspective, bad publicity is sometimes better than no publicity at all. Controversy, in short, sells.“ Understanding Trump

„Johnson describes a scene that played out in the summer of 1940.

The Germans had swept through Poland and France, and Marshall called in the American army chief of the cavalry to find out how he planned to respond to the German blitz. The cavalry chief told Marshall he had analyzed the German attack, understood why the Polish cavalry had failed against the German tanks, and knew what they needed to do better. He suggested to Marshall that the allies should develop trucks that could carry the cavalry up to the battlefield, so the horses would be fresh.

Marshall thanked him, concluded the meeting, and immediately called in Beetle Smith to have the commandant retired as of noon and have the post of cavalry chief abolished.“
