Illusion, Misdirection, Tantrums and Lies

Wednesday, April 1, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

If you are at all like me, you woke up this April morning hoping that the newspapers would be full of headlines reading “April Fool,” and subheaded, “The last few weeks? Gotcha!”  Alas, no such luck.

Consider the politics of the moment.  Negotiations to keep Iran from getting the bomb continue well past the deadline when we have already given away the farm.  Hillary Clinton evades scrutiny in ways Bill never dreamed of.  The Indiana madness (and we are NOT talking basketball) has now taken root in Arkansas.  And the former Majority Leader of the Senate shamelessly admits to lying for political gain.  All of these are stories where political victory seems to trump fair play, ethics, reason, and the constitution.  It’s not a good time in American politics.

Utah Senator Mike Lee On Tax Reform, Filibuster Reform, Defense Spending And More

Tuesday, March 31, 2015  |  posted by Duane Patterson

The Audio:


The Transcript:

HH: As promised, United States Senator Mike Lee is in the studio. He’s now been taken to the secret location where John Thune, Justice Breyer, Dick Cheney, and he is underwhelmed as they are. You know, radio is really glamorous, isn’t it, Senator Lee?

ML: It is the absolute definition of, it’s the epitome of glamour right here in this office.

HH: There you go. (laughing) Senator Lee, welcome, it’s good to have you. You’re in California, you’re raising money. You’re not running until 2016. People think Utah is a lockdown state, but it isn’t, really, and you’ve got to get out there and you need your supporters to rally. What’s your, by the way, your political website?

ML: My political website is You can go there, you can donate to my campaign, or donate to my campaign. It’s a great place to visit.

HH: And donate to your campaign a third time.

ML: Exactly.

HH: So 2016, but people are going to look and they say Utah is so deep red, why do we need to support Mike Lee? And the answer is, I suspect, you want to just make sure the field is clear, and then you’ll put the money to good use if it isn’t.

ML: Well, that’s absolutely right. And within a state like mine, that generally elects Republicans to statewide office, generally elects Republicans to the United States Senate, it pushes a lot of activity into the Republican Party, a lot of people who in other states might be Democrats might end up deciding to participate in the Republican Party for that reason. So we’ve got to make sure that it’s just a Republican, but the right Republican, a Republican who has a conservative vision for America. Continue Reading

Jeb Bush On The Indiana Law, Iran, and Hillary

Monday, March 30, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is making a California swing this week, and came by the studio today:





HH: I begin with a great drop-in guest, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush joins me in the studio. Governor Bush, welcome to our super secret studio in wonderful Southern California.

JB: I’m glad I found it.

HH: Yeah, it’s not easy.

JB: It’s not easy to find, parking is sparse, but it’s great to be with you, Hugh.

HH: Well, I want to begin with the NCAA’s and then we’ll get to the serious stuff. Now on one hand, we have Kentucky, which is the evil empire coached by Darth Vader, then we’ve got Luke, which is Wisconsin, and we’ve got Princess Leia, which is Michigan State, and then we’ve got Han Solo, who is Duke. What’s your pick?

JB: Well, I picked Virginia, so I got out early. But I think Duke is the only team that can beat Kentucky.

HH: Now this is your dad talking, isn’t it?

JB: A little bit. Coach K is a great motivator, a great leader, and he loves my dad, so look, I’ve got to be loyal.

HH: Can you pick Wisconsin or Michigan in the event that Duke fades over Kentucky?

JB: Yeah.

HH: Okay. You want to be a Big Ten fan, don’t you?

JB: Well, I love Michigan State, too, another great kind of situation – a great coach, these kids seem to play better and better as they go along. Continue Reading
