    Former President Donald Trump responded to questions about why he did not terminate the employment of former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci amid the early onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.During an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, President Trump was asked about Dr. Fauci, who had been on the Trump pandemic response force, in 2020. "First of all, you’re not allowed," the former president said when asked why he didn't fire him, which Mr. Hewitt said was the "biggest knock" on his presidency."No, no, no, Dr. Fauci was there. First of all, he’s civil service,...

    Hugh Hewitt’s interview with Ron DeSantis includes this exchange about the Supreme Court:HH: Now in terms of the judges that you will bring to bear on this, former President Trump hit three home runs with his Supreme Court appointments. Are you going to make the same kind of pledge to the Republicans as you go around the country that your judges will be like the Trump judges?RD: Well, actually, I would say we’ll do better than that. I mean, I respect the three appointees he did, but none of those three are at the same level of Justices Thomas and...

    If Democrats were hoping that the relentless pressure on Donald Trump would make him back down, they were apparently wrong. Trump was a guest on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Thursday, dropping some very interesting nuggets. Among them: He not only believes he won’t be indicted, but if he were, it wouldn’t stop him from running for President. Further, he warned that an indictment would lead to “…problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it.”

    Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt said Thursday on FNC’s “Special Report” that media reports claiming Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign spied on former President Donald Trump was going too far in the assessment of Special Counsel John Durham’s filing last week. Friday, Durham filed a new motion in the case against attorney Michael Sussmann, who was indicted by a grand jury last year for making a false statement to the FBI about not representing Hillary Clinton while he was billing her. Anchor Bret Baier said, “Former Secretary of State former Senator, former First Lady Hillary Clinton talking to New York Democrats...

    Listening to Hugh Hewitt this morning - he made the outrageous comment about how the vaxxed will survive the omicron variant if they catch it, while the unvaxxed will die! I know Hewitt is a Beltway 'conservative' with a reputation as a RINO with his support of Romney in the past, but how the hell can he get away with such crap? So far, there has been only one fatality on the planet related to omicron, and it's not even clear whether it was an 'of omicron' or 'with omicron'.

    Conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt pleaded with former President Trump to not endorse disgraced former Gov. Eric Greitens in the Missouri Senate race. On “The Hugh Hewitt Show” Wednesday, Hewitt begged Trump not to endorse Greitens, saying Republicans would lose the Senate seat if he did so. “Please don’t, please don’t endorse Eric Greitens. That’s a nightmare, Mr. President. We’ll lose that seat. But that’s Hugh Hewitt’s opinion, not yours,” Hewitt said.

    Trump has reduced the U.S. military footprint abroad, choosing to punch hard while pulling back. The Islamic State’s so-called caliphate in the Middle East has been destroyed. Syria and Iran are on notice. The two biggest terrorist leaders alive when Trump took office, the Islamic State’s Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani, are now dead. The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have recently signed major diplomatic agreements with Israel, a breakthrough engineered by the Trump administration and the first such pact between the Jewish state and its Arab neighbors in 25 years. The president has focused the...

    The Washington Compost ^ | 11-6-2019 | Hugh Hewitt
    There are three paths before Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) when it comes to any articles of impeachment the House of Representatives eventually sends the Senate’s way. One is short: a quick dismissal by the Senate of the House charges. One is long: an extensive trial that would let the president and his defenders expose wrongdoing by Democrats and their ”permanent bureaucracy” allies. The third — the only approach that is obviously wrong but that may also be the most likely outcome — would be a far more limited trial that would serve only to reward Democrats for their...

    CBS paid more than $5 million in a settlement agreement reached in the 1990s with a woman who claimed former '60 minutes' executive producer Doug Hewitt sexually assaulted her, the New York Times reported Thursday. Lawyers hired by CBS to investigate the workplace culture of '60 Minutes' are set to present a report to the board next week, according to the Times, which obtained a draft. The report, precipitated by the high profile removals of '60 Minutes' producer Jeff Fager and CBS chief executive Les Moonves after sexual misconduct allegations, found the program's separation from the larger company to be...

    The commentator is joining MSNBC's Saturday morning lineup, a move that is sure to raise eyebrows at the network and among the network's left-leaning fans. MSNBC, which has been soaring lately in both ratings and in advertising prices, is giving radio host Hugh Hewitt his own show, adding another conservative voice to a lineup that already includes Fox News poach Greta Van Susteren and former George W. Bush communications hand Nicole Wallace. Hewitt's self-titled show will air on Saturday mornings at 8 a.m., starting June 24, as part of an expansion of the network's weekend programming in July.

    The radical transformation of cable news continues. According to a report by Yashar Ali in New York Magazine, conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt is in talks with MSNBC about the creation of a new television show Hewitt would host. According to New York Magazine’s sources, the show would air on weekend evenings. Initially, Hewitt had been offered a show for weekend mornings, but Hewitt turned the offer down because he reportedly wants an evening show. Hewitt is a longtime conservative radio host who is broadcast through the popular Salem Radio Network. He is also currently a contributor for...

    By Hugh Hewitt March 25 The pulling of the GOP health-care bill this week was a big loss, and perhaps significant beyond its own costs, as it may signal that the “Area 51” sub-caucus within the Freedom Caucus is made up not so much of conservative Republicans as parties of one with no interest in an agenda shared beyond whatever exists in the space between their own ears.

    In an infrequent moment of criticism, Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, an unflinching defender of President Donald Trump, admitted that the commander in chief is “too sensitive at times.” Conservative radio show host and Washington Post columnist Hugh Hewitt, after arguing that Trump is “President Promise Keeper,” asked Hannity: “What’s the negative? What’s the one thing that bothers you about him?” The Fox host, who agreed with Hewitt’s assessment that Trump has kept his campaign promises so far, said that it might, in fact, be the president’s stick-to-itivness that has hurt him. Hannity said Trump is “not a perfect person.”...

    There was a time when people like Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Erick Erickson were powerful voices within the Conservative movement. That was BT or “Before Trump,” when most American Conservatives were asleep at the wheel and operating on status quo neo-conservative autopilot, completely unaware that the maverick radio voices we hailed as rebels, were actually globalist shills-for-hire. The silent majority was silent because we were napping, however, Trump has awakened the slumbering giant and we’re hip to the globalist trick played upon us by so-called radio conservatives, politicians, media, and pundits, who subtly pepper falsehoods like, amnesty is good,...

    Dear Friends, it doesn’t matter whether the Anti-Trumpist of the day emanates from Washington DC (congress), from media (punditry), or from the special interest groups doing the bidding of Wall Street (US CoC), the ultimate thread which connects them all is money. Lots, and lots, of money. These are financial interests. Not meaning to be so simplistic, but it’s always about the money. Behind every globalist word, behind every globalist ideology, behind the convenient use of pop culture – you find the motives of power interests all circle around money.

    Conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt believes Republican delegates should change the convention rules and nominate someone other than Donald Trump for president. On his Wednesday morning show, Hewitt likened sticking with the presumptive GOP nominee to “ignoring Stage 4 cancer. You can’t do it, you gotta go attack it.” “And right now the Republican Party is facing — the plane is headed towards the mountain after the last 72 hours,” he said.

    It’s predictable; it’s transparent (if you dig into it); and yet it remains as one of the most undiscussed aspects to the current political climate: Multi-media political pundits, including big name National Radio Talk Show Hosts, being paid by DC operatives, Super-PACs, and Campaigns to protect the establishment figures. (see here) They hide, at least they try to, behind layers of constructed LLC’s intended to protect them from sunlight. They also rely upon delays in legally required reporting timeframes to carry out their goals and avoid discovery until after they have been successful in their efforts.
