  • How Trump has made America better than it was four years ago

    Citizen Free Press ^ | 10/6/2020 | Hugh Hewitt
    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...

    [snip] HH: But Brian, that kind of asks, that begs the question. Your criticism in Hoax, a lot of is based in the coverage of the Mueller investigation and how they downplayed it and called it a Hoax. It turns out there was no collusion, and it turns out we know this week, you couldn’t have known it during writing of Hoax… BS: Yeah. HH: …that the primary sub-source of the Steele dossier is probably a Russian agent, correct? BS: I think there’s a fantasyland that Fox promotes about what you’re describing, about the Steele dossier and all of that...
  • Election 2020 live updates: Democrats unveil convention speakers; Trump criticizes Biden on veep | Trump claims that if Biden wins Americans will have to 'learn to speak Chinese'

    Trump claimed that China would "own" the United States if Biden becomes president and that Americans "would have to learn to speak Chinese." The president riffed on what he called his tough approach to China and the deterioration of his relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping over the coronavirus pandemic during a morning interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, who is also a contributing opinion columnist for The Washington Post. Hewitt noted that Trump's national security adviser Robert C. O'Brien had recently said that China would prefer Biden to win in November. Trump agreed that Beijing would rather deal...

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is leaving open the possibility of crossing party lines this November to vote for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden over President Trump. "Like everybody else, I get to go into the voting booth and pull the lever for the person that I think is going to do the best job. And we’re going to figure that out in the next 100 days," the Republican chief executive said Monday in an interview with conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt. "I’m going to try to make that decision like everybody else in America."

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Monday said he believed many of President Trump’s tweets have “coarsened discussion,” but praised the president for having “a backbone." “So many of us are so sick and tired of Republicans that roll over and whimper when encountering the slightest resistance. And I think probably the best characteristic about the president is he’s got a backbone. And he will fight,” Cruz told conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, when asked how the president has changed the Republican Party. “Now I will say ... I wish his tone and some of the things he said were...

    The Hill ^ | 07 13 2020 | Gabby Birenbaum
    Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) in an interview on Monday called ESPN’s suspension of reporter Adrian Wojnarowski a distraction from the NBA's relationship with China and said he would support a Senate subpoena of NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. In an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Hawley said Wojnarowski, who was suspended by ESPN after he responded to an email from Hawley’s press office with an expletive, should be reinstated. The real concern, Hawley said, was that the NBA, which is allowing preapproved messages for players to wear on the back of their jerseys in response to player involvement in...

    Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas may be planning to retire soon, according to rumors in the media Wednesday.Robert Costa reported in the Washington Post that the Trump administration was preparing for the possible retirement of Justice Clarence Thomas: Justice Clarence Thomas, a conservative appointed by George H.W. Bush, is privately seen by Trump’s aides as the most likely to retire this year. While Thomas has not given any indication of doing so, the White House and Senate Republicans are quietly preparing for a possible opening, according to a White House official and two outside Trump political advisers who spoke on the...

    Even if the aging influence of the Commission on Presidential Debates somehow holds up, voting in many states will be underway before President Trump faces off against former vice president Joe BidenBut Trump would be crazy to accept the commission’s schedule or its role in setting formats and moderators. (SNIP) It would be odd for Trump to agree to debate Biden under the authority of a commission deeply biased toward Beltway group think, no matter how confident he is that the former vice president lacks the energy to go two hours against him. But why walk into three ambushes? (SNIP)...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 16, 2020 | David Rutz
    NBC News anchor Chuck Todd said Democratic leaders could take blame for holding up billions of dollars in coronavirus relief just hours before a small business loan program ran out of cash. "The side that looks like they're holding up money, I think, is bad politics," Todd told radio host Hugh Hewitt, in remarks flagged by HotAir...."I think that small business money issue is something that's more front and center with the public than the issue of reimbursing the states," he said....
  • Sessions: No regrets about leaving Senate to serve as attorney general

    SNIP Sessions, who was the first — and for a long time only — senator to endorse Trump in 2016, left the Senate to become Trump’s attorney general in February 2017. He had held the Senate seat for 20 years. But his relationship with the president quickly turned sour after he recused himself from a decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate Trump after it was revealed that Sessions did not disclose a meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Nevertheless, Sessions said Tuesday he doesn’t have any regrets. “No, you don’t regret things like that,” Sessions said when asked...

    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...

    The Republican Party risks exile for longer than it has endured in the modern era if, in the absence of incontrovertible evidence of actual “high crimes and misdemeanors,” it deserts President Trump during the campaign to remove him from office. Democrats are pursuing impeachment because they obviously fear that they cannot defeat him at the ballot box in 2020. The advantage of talking with radio listeners — and not merely lecturing readers or tweeting at followers or opponents — is that you hear from people who aren’t among the Manhattan-D.C. media elites who overwhelmingly hate Trump. First, no quid pro...
  • Trump should swiftly reject the schedule of 2020 debates

    Washington Post ^ | October 15, 2019 | Hugh Hewitt
    Last week, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced the schedule of 2020 presidential debates. President Trump should quickly dismiss that schedule as unacceptable and announce that if any debates will be held at all in 2020, it will be only after extensive, direct negotiations between him and the eventual nominee of the Democratic Party and their respective designated representatives. And those negotiations should begin from a premise that the Republicans will no longer play by the biased rules of a deeply unbalanced Manhattan-Beltway media elite. Explicitly articulating this declaration of intent now, along with the possibility that, as in 1968...

    The Trump administration was very close to launching major military strikes on the nation of Iran last week. At the very last minute though, the president pulled back, and thank goodness he did. Instead of being praised for the best decisions he has made so far as president, Trump has come under attack for that. On the right, radio show host, Hugh Hewitt accused the president of being a weakling for not launching a trillion-dollar war over a broken robot. Hugh Hewitt, radio show host: Let's go to what the president did yesterday. I've been very critical of it this...

    Hugh Hewitt kicked off his radio show on Friday by thanking his guest, former Maryland Congressman John Delaney, for "saving his blue cross." His health care. Unlike some of his leftist opponents, Delaney does not endorse the Medicare for All plan, which would kick 250 million Americans off of their private insurance plans and give government the reins. "The American people want choices," Delaney protested. "And they ought to have them. It's also about economics, as you know." Other moderates agree. Delaney's fellow presidential contender Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) was able to tell Sanders face-to-face last night at the 2020...

    America’s enemies are on notice: The president is no longer an eloquent pushover professor-president but a ruthless real estate developer and television network brawler-president whose principle weapons are blunt candor and walking away from the table. Trump is responding to both his domestic political opponents and America’s actual enemies with the same tactics: blunt, repetitive messaging and use of the walk-off. He is sometimes rude, often full of unnecessary slashes, but always direct. (It often seems as if Trump answers more questions from reporters in a walk to the helicopter than President Barack Obama did in formal press conferences.) And...
