Dr. Ben Carson on 2016

Monday, September 22, 2014  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Dr. Ben Carson was my first guest on today’s show.  Pretty clear he will be running for president.




HH: We begin this hour with Dr. Ben Carson, the retired head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins hospital. He’s the author most recently of One Nation. He’s the electrifying speaker out on the circuit. He is also the author of a brand new free e-book. It’s free if you text the words, OneHewitt to 67076 right now, and I just tweeted that out. Dr. Carson, welcome to the program, it’s great to have you.

BC: Thank you, very good to be with you.

HH: Tell us about One Vote Book. What is this about? And what did you write it for? And why are you giving it away?

BC: Well, you know, there’s a large number of people, the majority of people in this country who feel that we’re moving in the wrong direction. And so many people have given up, In fact, in the 2012 election, 93 million people did not vote who were registered, who were eligible to vote. And that’s more votes than either of the candidates got. And I want people to understand what went into getting that vote for each one of them, and that this is not something that should be taken lightly, because we actually do, we the people do have the ability to dictate and to change the direction of our nation if we don’t like it. But we can only do that if we are informed. And that’s part of the problem. The fathers of our nation said that our freedom and our system of government is based upon a well-informed and educated populace. If they ever become other than that, the nature of the country will rapidly change. And they knew that would be the case, because people would not be able to accurately assess what they were being told. And this is what’s going on right now. But this book was written in an attempt to stop that cold in its tracks. Continue Reading

“At a Global Conference, Rumblings of Much Bigger War” By Clark S. Judge

The weekly column from Clark Judge:

“At a Global Conference, Rumblings of Much Bigger War” By Clark S. Judge: managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc.; chairman, Pacific Research Institute

This past weekend the International Institute of Strategic Studies held its annual Global Strategic Review Conference in Oslo, Norway. Because of its elite membership and closeness to a wide range of global players, the conference is a good place to take the pulse of the global policy community.

Five years ago, at my first of these sessions, I was surprised at the unease so many expressed about the new American president. I thought that outside the United States everyone was more or less gaga over Barack Obama. Instead, I found concern about whether the new American leader was up to managing America’s pivotal role in the world.

Now five years later, the conference had a more ominous subtext. By this time in 1914, the guns of August had opened fire. A century later, their ghostly boom echoed through the Norwegian conference hall. The remarks of two speakers — the Institute’s chairman, Francois Heisbourg, and a Shanghai-based Chinese venture capitalist, Eric Li — jump out from my notes. Continue Reading

Talking With Three Time Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings

My Thursday interview with three time gold medal winner Kerri Walsh Jennings –who teamed with Misty May-Teanor to win beach volleyball laurels in Athens, Beijing and London, and who is now training with April Ross– was so wonderfully received by those that heard it that many ave asked for access to it.  Kerri was terrific, and to goad more folks down to watch the her and the rest of the best in the world play at the AVP championship in Huntington Beach this weekend, here’s the audio of that conversation:
