A City Upon A Hill

Hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich, A City Upon A Hill, explores the concept of American Exceptionalism from its origin to the present day.

At the time of our founding, no other nation had adopted the radical ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. No other nation had declared, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” — rights that no king or government could take away.

In A City Upon a Hill, we see that throughout our history, the United States has risen to great challenges — sometimes out of necessity but often out of the determination to create a better future.

Through interviews with historians, politicians, and other experts, we understand why America is indeed an exceptional nation. Produced in partnership with Citizens United Productions.


America at Risk

America At Risk, hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich, vividly demonstrates the dangers facing America, nine years after the attacks on 9/11.

Today Washington refuses to tell the truth about the war we are fighting. According to experts, we are at war with Radical Islamism — and it is a war we are losing. But how do we win a war with an enemy the Obama Administration refuses to identify? We are long overdue for a serious global strategy in fighting terrorism and the ideology behind it. We must have the courage to tell the truth and to act on that truth. It’s time to be honest about what we know.

Every citizen who is concerned about our nation’s safety and security should see this compelling and powerful documentary. Produced in partnership with Citizens United Productions.
