“Ally” by Michael Oren

Thursday, July 2, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Yeah, I know, I recommend a lot of books.  But you really must read Ally by Michael Oren, formerly Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., now a member of Israel’s Knesset, and native of New Jersey.  He joined me in studio Thursday, and we talked enough to save some for Monday’s show as well.  But even a long conversation cannot convey how incredibly central to understanding U.S.-Israeli relations going forward as this historian-turned-diplomat-turned-politician (and future minister?)’s memoir is.

Transcript:

HH: So pleased to welcome back Governor Bobby Jindal, now a declared candidate for president, the governor of Louisiana. Governor Jindal, welcome to the Hugh Hewitt Show.

BJ: Hugh, thank you for having me back on the phone. Great to talk to you.

HH: Well, I just had lunch with an old colleague of yours, Congressman John Campbell, who will be sitting in for me next week when I am on vacation. He said to say hello to you, and I said I would. But I also told him I had to ask you about this debate, which has divided the Republican field between the necessity of ending the filibuster or keeping it, should the filibuster stand in the way of the complete repeal of Obamacare. And I told him I was interested in Governor Jindal’s answer since he had served in the legislature as well as an executive. What do you think about that debate?

BJ: Well look, the Democrats used every trick available to pass Obamacare. You remember they used reconciliation even after they lost their 60th vote. I’m all for doing whatever it takes to get rid of Obamacare. And if getting rid of the filibuster is the way that we get rid of Obamacare, I’m for it. We’ve got to get rid of this law. I think it’s doing that much damage to our economy. The health care, Hugh, let’s be honest, Obamacare is another step towards socialism. It’s another step toward more government dependence. I’m all for getting rid of it. And if we have to get rid of the filibuster to get rid of it, I’m all for it. Continue Reading

“Sailing through the Greek Crisis” By Clark S. Judge

The weekly column from Clark Judge:

“Sailing through the Greek Crisis”
By Clark S. Judge: managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc.; chairman, Pacific Research Institute

Last week, as Greece, and, as a result of Greece, the EU, were approaching a point of no return in their five-year economic and financial crisis, I was put-putting with four school buddies in a boat through the Greek Islands -– our ports of call a tour of life before the deluge.

That life was a grand life. Over dinner in one small port, we cheered and clapped in rhythm as a line of waiters danced to the theme of Zorba the Greek. Several very watchable women joined in. Their effervescence and energy left me musing that this must be why Ulysses took so long to find his way home. Continue Reading

Forget Strategic, What About Rational?

Thursday, July 2, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

So, I run across this piece about Obama’s foreign policy strategy, or lack thereof:

What comes through clearly from this and other articles, as well as memoirs from Administration insiders and foreign counterparts, is how much of what passes for “big picture” thinking in the White House is purely reactionary–not to events in the world but to what are perceived as the sins and errors of past American policy.

The author, Steven Postrel, in the preceding paragraph makes a compelling case for how there is not single strategy or guiding principle for how this administration does things: Continue Reading
