Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush On Nation’s Security On Thanksgiving Eve, And State of 2016 Race

Wednesday, November 25, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush joined me on Thanksgiving Eve to cover the security concerns sweeping the world after the Paris, Mali and Tunis attacks and following shoot-down by Turkey of Russian fighter-bomber.  We also talked about the state of the 2016 race and of course that means Donald Trump:




HH: To get you started on a long commute, I’m pleased to welcome back former Florida Governor and candidate for the GOP nomination in 2016, Jeb Bush. Governor Bush, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show.

JB: Thank you, Hugh, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

HH: And do you. I don’t know if you’re spending it in Florida or Texas. Wherever you are, have a great one. It’s a tough time in America right now. I talked to you a week ago after, during the Paris attacks.

JB: Yeah.

HH: Do you believe the American response has been adequate to the crisis?

JB: No, not at all. In fact, yesterday, the President said something that I found breathtaking in its naiveté, which is that the best way to show our differences with ISIS is to convene a meeting about climate change. That’ll show ‘em. That’ll show ISIS what we mean, that we mean business, that our values are different. Of course, they’re different. This is a threat against Western Civilization, and the response has been very halting and very weak, and I think it sends signals to our allies that we’re not serious anymore, and has grave repercussions as it relates to the North American alliance. It certainly has, validates concerns in the Persian Gulf countries and Arab countries in general that the United States is not going to provide any security umbrella for them. The world has been turned upside down, and our President acts as though this is a law enforcement exercise, that just be patient, it’ll all work out. And he’s wrong. Continue Reading

Thanksgiving In Our Face

Wednesday, November 25, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

Yesterday I confessed to finding thanks difficult in this time – there is simply so much bad news.  And so I spent the day remembering all the good, and there has been so much good.  But when my thoughts returned to the present things still seem so bleak.  That which might have signaled the beginning of nuclear Armageddon at one time in my life happened yesterday.  Fortunately this is not that time, but it is still horrible news.  And so this morning I think of the admonition of the Apostle Paul to the church in Thessalonica, “…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. ”  Even in this current circumstances God wants me to thank Him.

And so this morning I pray with David the prayer he set forth in Psalm 54.  David is beset by enemies and he asks God to deliver him from them, in that time of peril David assumes God’s answer and thanks God for His answer. Continue Reading

As Thanksgiving Approaches…

Tuesday, November 24, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

I don’t know about you, but when I survey the nation and the world at this moment, thankfulness is hard to come by.  The economy progresses as if in a morass, our young people seem desperate and lost, and our enemies threaten us practically to our face yet our defenders are hogtied or refuse to acknowledge the threat.  Nonetheless our history is replete with marvelous things of this world and the next, of great things of men and of nature.  And thus my mind turns to Psalm 77, and with Asaph the choir director I remember… Continue Reading
