“Two Rules” Hillary

Wednesday, March 4, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

One set of rules for the Clintons, another set for everyone else.

This is the basic approach of Bill and Hillary to public life, and the latest and still unfolding Clinton drama –this one concerning her emails– is just more evidence, if any was needed, is that “rules” are for the small people.  This vast refusal to live by the ordinary norms of a government official, and then to obfuscate and cover up that refusal, won’t derail her candidacy, but does brig clarity to her mindset.

it also reminds us of the inadequacy of the GOP questioners during Hillary’s first appearance on Benghazi.  No one even thought to ask if she maintained email or other communication channels independent of the State Department’s official system.  Everyone just assumed she would have played by the rules…

Shared-X

Tuesday, March 3, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

I’ll be covering Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech on today’s program with an emphasis in hours two and three.  In the first hour I am using my time in the Silicon Valley on the campus of Stanford at the Hoover Institution to feature the work of Shared-X by having one of its founders John Denniston join me in the studio for the first hour of today’s program.  The focus of Shared-X is on causing a dramatic increase in the agricultural yields of South America.  Developing countries simply have to supply the need for an ever expanding food base.  to do that they need relatively quick, relatively steep hikes in their crop yields.

And that is “Shared-X.”  Listen in the first hour to glimpse how it works.

Clintons, Scandal, and The Imperial Presidency

Tuesday, March 3, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

There are a couple of scandals brewing around Hillary Clinton.  One, her use of private email when SoS, is front page NYT.  (Which, by the way, may be far more significant than just the preservation of documents for historical purposes.)  The other scandal, far less covered, surrounds the Clinton Foundation’s willingness to accept donations from foreign governments and its rather lavish use of the funds so acquired.  This later scandal is new territory legally and ethically.  In a former president much of the foundations shenanigans are pushing the envelope of propriety, but when that former president’s wife is considered the front runner for the Democratic nomination for POTUS, propriety takes on a whole new impetus.

That said, these stories have struck me as yawners.  In a party as devoted to its presidential candidates as the Democrats have been of late, this kind of stuff is just water off a duck’s back.  And this early in the cycle, this stuff is completely off the radar of the general electorate and inoculating for when the general finally rolls around.

Netanyahu And The Congress

Tuesday, March 3, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

 

 
Prime Minister Netanyahu is addressing Congress this morning, but his real audience are these two men.  These two can make an agreement.  Congress may or may not decide to accept that agreement.
But Prime Minister Netanyahu has a decision to make about such an agreement as well.  Hopefully the Congress will act quickly to take steps to avert Israel having to act alone to preserve its safety against a nuclear Iran under Article 51 of the U.N. Charter.  It is that simple.  President Obama’s great legacy hunt is pushing the world closer and closer to a major confrontation between Israel and Iran.  Congress can stop that momentum.  It should do so quickly.
