Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee joined me on Wednesday’s show:

Transcript:

HH: I’m so pleased to begin today’s program with the former governor Arkansas and star of the Fox News Channel, Mike Huckabee. Governor Huckabee, welcome from Cherokee, Iowa. I guess you’re at the VFW hall there.

MH: Well, I am, Hugh. We’ve got another rally. We’ve been covering some ground in Iowa today, which I’ll be doing a lot of between now and next February.

HH: Well, it was good to see you this past weekend in Denver where you wowed the crowds. But I’d like to begin by talking to you about, is it fair to call Hillary Clinton your old friend, Mike Huckabee?

MH: I doubt she would attribute it that way. Her husband and I got along much better. She is not quite the warm and fuzzy person that Bill Clinton is. And you know, I know them well, and of course, every election I ever had to run, what I really ran against, Hugh, was her political machine that she and her husband had built over a 25 year period. And I can attest to the fact that it is a formidable force. Continue Reading

Senator Ted Cruz joined me today to discuss his new book A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Miracle of America

Transcript:

HH: I’m so pleased to now welcome United States Senator Ted Cruz, whose brand new book, A Time For Truth: Reigniting The Promise Of America, published by Broadside. Senator Cruz, how are you?

TC: Hugh, great to be with you.

HH: You know, this book bears all the earmarks of you actually having written it yourself.

TC: Well, guilty as charged. This book represents thousands of my hours and a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears. This was not your typical candidate’s book that’s ghostwritten. You know, sometimes I think political candidates may not have even read their own book. This is not one of those.

HH: You know, on Page 44, this is a line which every book should have. “Joe got a shotgun and a baseball bat, and took off in his car looking for me.”

TC: (laughing) Well, and that’s a true story from when I was 15 and when out with a buddy of mine to an arcade late at night. And we got jumped by four guys who beat the living daylights out of me. And Joe was married to my sister, and he thought I was missing, so he got a shotgun and a baseball bat, and took in a truck looking for me. Continue Reading

On With Sean Hannity Tonight To Discuss “The Queen: The Epic Ambition of Hillary and the Coming of a Second ‘Clinton Era'”

I’ll be joining Sean tonight as the nicest man in broadcast news helps me bring attention to The Queen and the inherent advantages of having money, a machine, most of the media, and the map at your back entering 2016.

Now What!?

The mess in Greece looks only to get messier.  Puerto Rico is BK.  Murmurs of a terrorist attack this holiday weekend.  A beheading in France, just the scariest of several hideous terrorist attacks.  That’s the hard geopolitical stuff.  On the softer cultural side things that just a decade or two ago seemed unthinkable are now a part of our general cultural.  Pot is legal in a lot of places and getting more so.  Same-sex marriage is now the law of the land.  That’s just the spectacular stuff.  I could go on and on and on.  I think most of us have gotten a “flinch” reaction – that is to say when ever anybody approaches, we flinch in anticipation of more bad news.

Joseph Epstein had an interesting piece in the WSJ this morning about the political appeal of “going forward.”  He discusses it as a means of political evasion:

Going forward is a useful phrase to cap an evasive political answer and close off further discussion of a tricky or touchy point. Implicit in the phrase is the notion of progress, futurity, help on its way. As such, it is perfect for the vocabulary of politicians, for electoral politics is built on promises. Something there is in human beings that imbues them with hope for happy days ahead, and skilful politicians, with the aid of this new mantra of evasion, play nicely to this. Recall Barack Obama’s promise of “Hope and Change,” a splendid double-barrel bit of going forward.

I think that is fair, but when the situation is as it now is, we still do have to move forward in some fashion.  It is pointless to sit here in fear or malaise, here is clearly not a good place. Continue Reading
