Newt Online

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is taking his conservative revolution to the web.

Newt Gingrich is back, and he’s going to save America through online workshops!

On Saturday, Sept. 29, Gingrich’s public advocacy group American Solutions for Winning the Future will be running a bunch of web-based symposia, all as part of his Solutions Day. According to his press release, the plan is that local groups will get together, log on, and listen to Gingrich and some like-minded friends explain how they would save the world. Sort of like an FDR fireside chat, but with bandwidth and pop-ups. Included in the list of moderators will be Texas’ own Michael Williams, Chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission, advocating nuclear power and “clean” coal.

The non-partisan, non-profit org said in its press release it aims to “address the challenges facing America.” Which is probably why they’ve got libertarian talk show host Neal Boortz talking about flat taxes and David Barton, president of church-and-state-unifiers Wallbuilders, running a workshop called “Rediscovering God in America."
