Chris Christie On Hillary’s Attempt To Escape Benghazi/Server Fallout, Gun Control, And A Boehner-Obama Exit Deal

Monday, October 5, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie joined me to start hour two of today’s show:

Audio: 10-05hhs-christie


HH: Went home after Morning Joe at four o’clock in the morning here in Colorado and went back to sleep. But I’m awake because Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey is joining me to start today’s show. Governor Christie, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show.

CC: Happy to be back, Hugh.

HH: A lot of the talk on Morning Joe was about polls. You are doing okay in some, not so well in others. Do you think they matter at this moment?

CC: Not really. I don’t. I think if you remember, eight years ago at this time, on the Democratic side, Hilary Clinton was ahead of Barack Obama by 20 points. On our side, we’ve have folks who have been leading in the polls I think six to seven different people now over [the] course of time. So, no I don’t. I think what really matters is what kind of campaign you are running, how hard you are working, and I’m glad to see that some folks respond to that. I’m sure that even more are going to respond as we move forward because what they want is something different than what’s going on Washington D.C. right now which is a train wreck both at the White House and on Capitol Hill.

HH: Also this morning on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Clinton sat down and got heated and indignant over Kevin McCarthy, the likely new speaker. He is the prohibitive favorite, in fact, Jason Chaffetz was endorsing last week until he decided to get in, so I think Kevin McCarthy remains the prohibitive favorite. Has Hilary Clinton been given the gift-wrapped, “get-out-of-jail-free” card or is she trying to play what was at worse a misstatement into some kind of giant fog of war which allows her to escape the battlefield?

CC: Her conduct is her conduct, Hugh. She did all of her business through her private server in her basement which could have been hacked by the Russians, the Chinese, or some 18-year-olds off on a toot. She mishandled, it appears, classified information and none of that is going to change the matter whether Kevin McCarthy says something stupid or not. Continue Reading

My Washington Examiner Column On Gin Control –Exactly What I Said On Greg Gutfeld Sunday Night And Morning Joe Monday Morning

Monday, October 5, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

I have one message on gun control proposals put forward by the president and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the aftermath of the Oregon massacre, one that I wrote up for the Washington Examiner, and the outline of which I used in discussing the matter and those proposed “common sense” gun control remedies on both Greg Gutfeld’s show last night and Morning Joe this Monday morning.

On Goodness

Monday, October 5, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

Forget evolution, science versus religion and just, for a minute, concentrate on this:

Gen 1:31 –  God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.

Creation was made to be good.  Clearly we have strayed somewhere along the way.  Any of us can name numerous things around us that are not good.  Human history is an effort to get us back to good.  Or is it?

Consider this scene from the movie “Captain America: The First Avenger”

Captain America is first and foremost “a good man.”  Yet throughout the recently released to DVD movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron” Cap is ridiculed for his efforts to try and clean up the language of the other Avengers.  Proverbs says, “And he who is perverted in his language falls into evil.” (17:20)  Quaint and anachronistic as Cap’s efforts seem to be, he seeks in them to make the Avengers good.  And the other Avengers ridicule him for it.  I wonder if our culture values goodness anymore?

Obama seems unwilling to even define things in terms of good and evil.  And when he does, he proclaims things, not people, evil (like guns).  What constitutes goodness can be a difficult discussion fraught with battling value systems and unmovable faith structures.  But should that not be a discussion worth having?  People like Obama seem to think that it is not.  Assuming it unsolvable, they proclaim themselves so smart that they are above such petty debate.  When all they really are is either too lazy to have the debate or too morally vacant to care.
