Newt and Callista Gingrich offer remarks at the 40th Annual Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.
George Washington is unique in our history. No one had the combination of courage, perseverance, self-discipline, and judgement that Washington exemplified throughout his years of service.
In honor of his 281st birthday on February 22, 2013, Newt taught a special online course at Mount Vernon. The course celebrates the life of George Washington and demonstrates to all why he was considered “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”
David Harsanyi from Human Events talks to Callista Gingrich about her new children’s book, Land of the Pilgrims’ Pride and why it is more important now than ever to teach our children how America began.
In the New York Times bestseller, Sweet Land of Liberty, Ellis the Elephant sets off on a quest to find out how America became a free and exceptional nation. Now Ellis is back and ready to learn about the birth of our great nation in Land of the Pilgrims’ Pride. Written and illustrated by Callista Gingrich and Susan Arciero, Ellis once again educates and entertains as he discovers America’s thirteen original colonies. Starting in Virginia, Ellis journeys through each of the colonies and learns about their unique characteristics. From Pocahantas to Benjamin Franklin, Ellis experiences life in Colonial America. Perfect for children ages 4-8, Land of the Pilgrims’ Pride will delight young and adult readers alike while exploring how America began.
Callista: Thank you for that warm welcome. What a wonderful tribute to President Reagan and the spirit of the American people.
Newt: It’s fantastic to see so many friends here. Friends from decades of service to the party, service in public life and those who have helped us over the past few years. And we’re delighted that tonight we come together to once again renew the American spirit and put real leadership back in the White House this November.
Callista: The election of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will decisively move America to a better future. Remembering President Reagan reminds us that the choices we make matter, and this year is as important as the choice we made in 1980.
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.
