“Querido Papa Francisco: Dirígete al Oeste para que conozcas la verdadera esencia de los Estados Unidos.”

Tuesday, July 29, 2014  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Courtesy of Santiago Floresena (@FloresCisco on Twitter), the Spanish translation of my Monday Washington Examiner column, addressed to Pope Francis:

Querido Papa Francisco: Dirígete al Oeste para que conozcas la verdadera esencia de los Estados Unidos.

Querido Papa Francisco:

Su Santidad, Entiendo que su viaje a los Estados unidos aun no ha sido confirmado oficialmente, y aunque muchos tienen esperanzas de que en septiembre, seas bienvenido a Filadelfia por el arzobispo Charles Chaput; El Arzobispo ha sido muy cauteloso al enfatizar que en este corto tiempo hay muchas cosas que pudieran suceder las cuales pudieran interferir en su visita, lo cual comprendo perfectamente.

Asumiendo, que usted si podrá venir a Estados Unidos para participar en el Encuentro Mundial de las Familias, Usted será presionado por cantidad de lados con invitaciones de muchas ciudades y recibirá consejos sobre que temas embarcar mientras está en EEUU.

Como Católico, Periodista y radiofusionista, Educado por las hermanas de la humildad de Maria y los Franciscanos, pero también como locutor Conservador, me encantaría ofrecerle unas Sugerencias. Usted, en el Arzobispo Chaput, tiene como posible anfitrión a uno de los líderes mas distinguidos y venerados de la Iglesia Americana, y el Cardenal Sean Patrick O’Malley es miembro de “El Gabinete de Cardenales,” no cabe duda que con ellos dos, usted tendrá excelentes asesores, lamentablemente el Arzobispo Chaput es hincha de los Acereros de Pittsburgh y el Cardenal O’Malley, hincha de los Medias Rojas de Boston, lo cual creo que los descalifica a ambos de ser guías confiables de la Cultura Americana.

Where Will He Go? On What Subjects Will He Speak? Suggestions For Pope Francis Should He Visit America In 2015

Monday, July 28, 2014  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

That’s Pope Francis, Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput and Philly Mayor Michael Nutter on a visit to Rome in March.

The prospect of a visit from the Pope inspired my Monday Washington Examiner column and thus this break from vacation non-posting.

Then there’s this new sticker, which goes to last week’s column:

Jamie Weinstein did a great job for me last week.  Ed Morrissey is in this week, and I think Guy Benson on Monday next before I return Tuesday.  Thanks to them all for making a vacation possible.





“Waiting For Hillary To Implode?” by Clark Judge

The weekly column from Clark Judge:

Waiting For Hillary To Implode? by Clark S. Judge: managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc.; chairman, Pacific Research Institute

Last Saturday, the Washington Post ( reported that California governor Jerry Brown is contemplating a White House run.  What is going on here?

We have been hearing for months that former senator and secretary of State Hillary Clinton is a shoo-in for the 2016 Democratic Party presidential nomination.  She has the resume.  She has the money.  And solidly behind her, she has the second biggest draw in the Democratic Party, her husband Bill.

So why are Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren and now Governor Brown giving thought to jumping in?  Others the Post says are testing the tides include senators Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota) and Kirsten Gillibrand (New York), governors Andrew Cuomo (New York) and Martin O’Malley (Maryland) and, of course, Vice President Joe Biden.

Part of the answer, of course, is that the liberal wing of the party is not happy with Secretary Clinton.  Among numerous complaints, they see her as too close to their nemesis, not the GOP but Wall Street.  This is ironic, as, in 2008, at least, a big part of the financial community signed up with the left side of the party’s favorite of that election cycle, then senator, now president Barack Obama.  But six years later things have changed.  Left Democrats are in no mood for such an odd-fellows alliance.  Continue Reading

David Perdue for U.S. Senate In Georgia

Wednesday, July 23, 2014  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Breaking my vacation routine to comment on the Georgia Senate race.

I supported Jack Kingston from the start of this race. I’ve known him a long time and he’s a good man. But he came up short yesterday, and that means I am all for David Perdue now. It is vital that the GOP hold this seat if the effort to recover the Senate from Harry Reid is to be successful.

I’ll contribute to Perdue’s coffers when I am back and hope you’ll do so at least with a small  contribution asap, and I will have him on the show often, and perhaps Jamie Weinstein or Ed Morrissey will host him in my absence.  The late run-off gave Democrats an advantage here, and the Dems will try and swipe a seat here using a legacy candidate as they have done in Arkansas with the Pryor name and Colorado and New Mexico with the Udall name.  Legacy candidates in the Senate are almost always mere shadows of their more famous forerunners.  If you like Mark Pryor, you’ll love Michelle Nunn –a rote yes vote for Harry Reid and thus way out of step with the states they are supposed to represent.

David Perdue is a self-made man and will make a fine senator.  Perhaps The Varsity will allow me to do a remote broadcast from its fine environs on his behalf given that he’s a Georgia Tech alum and this great eatery is across the street.  We’ll see but the point is that everyone in the Georgia GOP and the national party has to rally to David Perdue, just as Jack Kingston already has.  The days of going home mad when your candidate comes up short have to be over, and Perdue is a conservative with valuable private sector experience.
