It is not pretty. Yet this Friday is Good, precisely because it is Him doing what He came for. In order to save us ...

The Color of Georgia

My father, Newt Gingrich, ran for congress in rural, west, middle Georgia in 1974. At the time, Georgia was dominated by the Democratic Party, there were few Republicans in the state and Watergate was in full swing.

What you won't hear about this month

Feb. 1 begins the 28-day "ceremony to injustice" that is nothing more than an aversion to modernity that encourages people to mire themselves in the past juxtaposed to embracing the present and the future. To me that is the essence of Black History Month. Black History Month is used by the nefarious and the corrupt to divide, to evoke blame and guilt, and often for personal gain.
