The Transcript:

HH: The biggest story of the afternoon in my view is the one that the New York Daily News brought to us, I told you about last hour, ISIS appearing to declare war on Pamela Geller, threatening that there are 71 trained ISIS killers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack, and it specifically names Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan and California. Joining me now, former United States Senator Jim Talent, who just knows this area of national security so well. Senator Talent, welcome, it’s always good to talk to you.

JT: Thanks, Hugh, it’s always good to be on.

HH: What do you make of this internet war that’s now broken out? Obviously, jihadists tried to kill Pam Geller and the people at her exhibition. Now, ISIS is posting anonymous threats. Ought we to publicize them? And my first question is should we cover threats like this when ISIS makes them?

JT: Well, yeah, I think without trying to overstate the danger, the public needs to know that one of their tactics is to radicalize people in country. So there’s a sense in which these individuals act alone in that they’re most often, you know, they’re not, it’s not part of a plan that they conspired to do with ISIS. But it is part of ISIS’ plans to radicalize people and then to claim credit afterward. So while we don’t know the details, yet, this is consistent with their operation. Continue Reading

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal Debates Ex-Im Bank

The Transcript:

HH: The biggest news of the day is not Deflate-gate. It is in fact the threat by the Islamic State against Pamela Geller. Joining me to discuss that and other issues of American power is Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Governor Jindal, welcome back, it’s always great to talk to you.

BJ: Hugh, it’s great to talk to you as well. I hope you got all your shots before you went to Washington, D.C.

HH: I did. I’m immune. I left years ago and I am immune. Governor, I’ve got to begin with this very troubling story. The Islamic State posted an anonymous message today threatening Pamela Geller, stating that there are 71 trained soldiers in 15 states. Mike McCaul, who is the chairman of the House Homeland Security says this is the textbook case of what we’re most concerned about, very serious. Are we doing enough surveillance?

BJ: Well Hugh, we’re not doing enough nearly at all to take this threat seriously. It starts first of all with a president who seemly won’t even identify the threat for what it is, radical Islamic terrorism. And so even before we get to surveillance, we need a president who will define the problem and say honestly Islam’s got a problem, and it’s called radical Islam. Their proponents want to, they hate our 1st Amendment, they hate freedom of speech. They want to destroy that, they want to destroy us. We’re not going to win this battle, we’re not going to deal with this problem unless we admit that it exists. It’s time for the President to say clearly to Muslim leaders that they need to step, declare that the perpetrators of such violence are the enemy, they are wrong, they are not martyrs that are going to be rewarded in the afterlife. These Muslim leaders also need to say that they are tolerant of every person in the world who doesn’t share their religious views, they condemn anybody who commits violence in the name of Islam. I’m not just saying condemning specific acts of violence, but I’m saying specific condemnation of these individuals and their acts, and saying specifically they tolerate people with different religious views. No excuse for our president not to ask for that. There’s no reason for us not to be demanding that right now, none. And look, you saw the attack in Texas. You saw the attack in Paris. You saw the attack in Australia. Clearly, ISIS wants to bring this fight to us, which is why it’s so important we need to hunt them down and kill them wherever they exist, especially in Syria and Iraq. When it comes to the threat here at home, look, until the President is willing to at least honestly define the threat we face, we don’t have a chance of beating this enemy until he’s willing to do that.

One Too Many In The Lists

Wednesday, May 6, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

A broad and well fought Republican presidential primary is a good thing.  It is way too early to pick a candidate.  The idea of a situation like this is to  let the discussion and debate happen.  The more we know the better we vote.  Mike Huckabee is one of the few, if not the only candidate, whose entrance into the race does not bode well for the race itself.  I do not know who I will vote for come the primary, but I can assure you it will not be Mike Huckabee.

Hugh spent a good bit of the show yesterday trying to get people to admit that if it is Hillary v Huckabee they will vote for Huckabee, and so for the record, yes I will vote for Huckabee in the general – if he gets there.  But I do not think he has much of a chance to get there, and while it is still primary season, my opposition to his candidacy will remain very strong.
