Vince Flynn and the Destruction of the CIA

Thursday, October 15, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

My conversation yesterday with author Vince Flynn (transcript here) of course dealt with his new novel, Pursuit of Honor, but we focused primarily with the toll the new administration is taking on the CIA. Flynn’s research brings him into regular contact with current and former members of the Agency’s clandestine service, and Flynn is passionate about communicating how the new administration’s witch hunt is demoralizing those who remain even as it has driven out many who have served the country since 9/11.

Read the whole thing. You have to be a member of the Hughniverse to listen to the podcast, but if you are, be sure to listen to the whole thing. Flynn is absolutely correct to chastise the Congressional GOP for failing to make the defense of the CIA a priority.

“Roger Goodell and the New McCarthyism” Plus Vince Flynn and Frank Luntz

Wednesday, October 14, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

My new column is up on the Rush-Rams controversy.

I devoted the entire show to it yesterday, except for one segment with Liz Cheney on, and I could have gone late into the night fielding calls from outraged NFL fans –ticked off fans called from NYC, Philly, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Denver, Chicago, San Diego, Phoenix and of course Cleveland. I am sure Steelers fans wanted to call but their help was away for the evening. (I don’t have an affiliate in St. Louis, so I didn’t get the vocie of the Rams fan who are probably praying for Rush to arrive and rescue their franchise.)

Today’s program may return to the subject as I feature long interviews with two very timely authors –Vince Flynn and Frank Luntz.

Vince returns to discuss his new Mitch Rapp novel, Pursuit of Honor, which came out yesterday:

Pursuit of Honor: A Novel

And Frank is here to discuss his new best seller, What Amerians Really Want…Really

What Americans Really Want...Really: The Truth About Our Hopes, Dreams, and Fears

Programs like today and yesterday are reasons why thousands have signed up for the Hughniverse. You’ll want to hear these interviews twice and even more often. Value-added radio, at the Hughniverse.

Surprise, Surprise: Obamacare Will Hit The Middle Class With Massive Tax Hikes

Wednesday, October 14, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Another eye-opening analysis of the outlines of the Obamacare fiasco, this in the Wall Street Journal and authored by Douglas Holtz-Eakin.

Senator Snowe’s vote yesterday did not commit her to voting yes on cloture when the final bill emerges from Senator Reid’s office. In fact, it has put her in a much stronger position to do just that, and if Joe Lieberman stay in opposition and Snowe is disappointed by what Reid proposes, the bill is dead. If even one more Democrat –Nebraska’s Ben Nelson or Arkansas’ Blanche Lincoln– declares as Lieberman did that the bill is too badly broken and too destructive of Medicare and votes no on cloture, the game is over. If two or three of these senators huddle together and decide now is the time to turn the switch off, it could happen any day. A new “Gang of Four or Six or Eight” could emerge and completely take over the process and save Medicare and American medicine generally.

So keep focusing the message of implacable opposition to the Democratic senators below along with your firm commitment to fund and walk precincts for their opponent in 2010 or beyond if they voite for cloture. Call, write, e-mail and make personal visits if possible. Find your friends in their states and ask them to do so as well.

It is all about the cloture.
