WASHINGTON—As former President Donald Trump flirts with announcing a run to retake the White House, his loyalists gathered in Washington for the America First Policy Summit, where a key speech suggested that Trump was part of something larger than himself.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich traced Trump’s policies to those of the 1994 Contract With America which he led after the Republicans seized the House for the first time in four decades. He then traces the America First policies further back to Ronald Reagan’s presidency and the agenda Reagan advocated as early as 1965.
“We were standing on Reagan’s shoulders,” he said of the 1994 policy platform.
Gingrich spoke Monday to the 1,200 attendees at the America First Policy Institute, a group set up in 2021 to continue the work on the Trump agenda. The AFPI summit features more than 150 leading conservative voices, including present and former members of Congress and high-ranking administration officials. Trump will deliver Tuesday’s keynote speech.
As Republicans try to win back Congress, Gingrich called on them to run “a big campaign, not a small one.” The former speaker said the campaign should be based on the serious questions facing Americans, such as rising food and energy costs, a crime wave aggravated by progressive prosecutors, foreign policy weakness, and schools disregarding parents’ wishes about what their children are taught.
And they should ignore Democrat distractions, like Raphael Warnock’s attack ads on Herschel Walker in Georgia’s Senate campaign or the Jan. 6 investigation, which he called “a Stalinist show trial disguised as a Congressional hearing.”
Americans are tuning out the latter, he said. They want the larger questions of the day addressed. Republicans can win when they do that, take a united stance on them and commit themselves publicly, he added.
It worked in 1994, and it worked earlier when Reagan not only swept into office in 1980 but showed coattails long enough for Republicans to take the Senate for the first time in 26 years.
Reagan had gathered all the Republican candidates on the Capitol steps before the election to commit to the platform, and it worked. At his first Cabinet meeting, Reagan plunked down a thousand
“And they hired most of the 250 (experts) who had written the report to actually go execute the report,” Gingrich said.
The AFPI’s agenda lists basic principles reminiscent of the Contract With America. They include items like “make America energy independent,” “provide safe and secure communities so all Americans can live their lives in peace,” and “deliver peace through strength and American leadership.”
Gingrich said these goals come less from Republicans than from what the public wants. The principles poll well, often with around 80 percent approval.
The first time Gingrich ran for Congress in 1974, he learned a fundamental rule from Reagan. “Find that 80 percent issue, stand next to it, and smile.” Broadly popular principles can’t be eroded by media opposition.
The crowd responded well to it.
“I’m a big believer in having a vision,” Chuck Williams, former Assistant Secretary of the Navy under Trump, told The Epoch Times during a break. “That was the whole concept of the Contract With America. It means a lot to me.”
Sticking to that kind of vision might convince disillusioned Democrats to side with it, he said. “This is not just about an individual.”
The policy initiative seems to offer Republicans a way out of post-Trump divisions within the party, appealing to the party’s establishment and MAGA factions alike, and giving Republicans a place to go whether or not Trump decides to run.
Speaker after speaker, though, reminded the crowd of Trump’s work on these policies and what the nation looked like under a leader who delivered prosperity at home and strength abroad.
Former national security adviser Keith Kellogg, a retired lieutenant general, emphasized that America First is not isolationist. Instead, it supports projecting strength abroad while demanding that foreign policy first be shown to benefit Americans.

*Follow the WEF trail to Switzerland to discover the Khazarian Mafia hiding behind Klaus Schwab and his cohorts. The US and its people have nothing to do with the disasters caused to the ordinary people of the Earth.
The Khazarians have once again constructed an intricate web, whose aim is to destroy the world's economy by setting people up against each other, blocking each other's supply chains, leaving just death and ruins.
What everybody must be aware of is that this is not a war to prevent Putin from occupying Ukraine, but an attempt by the evil Khazarian Jews/WEF/NATO to control yet another country in their growing New World Order. They are simply using Ukraine as a battlefield. Their plan is to destroy totally the world's economy and turn the population into slaves.
Like the Freemasons, they have also life-threatening rules in their membership, one being REVENGE, 10 times harder than was ever perpetrated on them.
Russia in particular, in the past, has expelled the Khazars several times. I have all of 7 detailed articles in book format on the Khazarian Jews if anybody is interested in further information.
Putin, and earlier also Trump, are the ONLY Presidents who have enough guts to see what they are attempting to do to the world population and have sufficient courage to do something about it.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
