“Ally” by Michael Oren

Thursday, July 2, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Yeah, I know, I recommend a lot of books.  But you really must read Ally by Michael Oren, formerly Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., now a member of Israel’s Knesset, and native of New Jersey.  He joined me in studio Thursday, and we talked enough to save some for Monday’s show as well.  But even a long conversation cannot convey how incredibly central to understanding U.S.-Israeli relations going forward as this historian-turned-diplomat-turned-politician (and future minister?)’s memoir is.

“Sailing through the Greek Crisis” By Clark S. Judge

Thursday, July 2, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The weekly column from Clark Judge:

“Sailing through the Greek Crisis”
By Clark S. Judge: managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc.; chairman, Pacific Research Institute

Last week, as Greece, and, as a result of Greece, the EU, were approaching a point of no return in their five-year economic and financial crisis, I was put-putting with four school buddies in a boat through the Greek Islands -– our ports of call a tour of life before the deluge.

That life was a grand life. Over dinner in one small port, we cheered and clapped in rhythm as a line of waiters danced to the theme of Zorba the Greek. Several very watchable women joined in. Their effervescence and energy left me musing that this must be why Ulysses took so long to find his way home. Continue Reading

Forget Strategic, What About Rational?

Thursday, July 2, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

So, I run across this piece about Obama’s foreign policy strategy, or lack thereof:

What comes through clearly from this and other articles, as well as memoirs from Administration insiders and foreign counterparts, is how much of what passes for “big picture” thinking in the White House is purely reactionary–not to events in the world but to what are perceived as the sins and errors of past American policy.

The author, Steven Postrel, in the preceding paragraph makes a compelling case for how there is not single strategy or guiding principle for how this administration does things: Continue Reading

Senator Lindsey Graham On The Looming Appeasement Of Iran And Breaking The Filibuster

Wednesday, July 1, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham joined me Wednesday to discuss the aftermath of the Charleston murders, the looming appeasement of Iran, and whether the filibuster in the Senate rules should be preserved even if it blocks a new Republican president from repealing Obamacare:

HH: So pleased to welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show United States Senator Lindsey Graham from Mason City, Iowa, this afternoon and evening. Hello, Senator Graham, welcome back.

LG: I am almost to the Music Man place.

HH: Welcome. I want to begin by asking you the straight up question, a lot of Republican candidates are calling to break the Senate filibuster rules in order to make sure we can repeal Obamacare, root and branch. Ted Cruz has just finished defending the filibuster. What’s Lindsey Graham say on that debate?

LG: I’m with Ted. Absolutely not. I would never vote to change the filibuster for Obamacare or anything else, because it served the country well. But what I would do is use reconciliation, the budget process that they used to pass Obamacare, to repeal Obamacare. But I wouldn’t change the Senate rules. Reconciliation only requires a majority vote if it’s in with the context of the budget. That’s how they passed Obamacare with 51 votes. Continue Reading
