Meet The Press Sunday And Today’s Show With General Stanley McChrystal, Chuck Todd, and Dr. Larry Arnn

Friday, June 12, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Off to D.C. tomorrow to be a part of the panel on Meet The Press with Chuck Todd on Sunday.  I suppose former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speech and Governor Jeb Bush’s trip will be part of the conversation, and I will provide a preview on today’s show when Chuck joins me for our regular Friday segment.

Also on today’s show: A long conversation with General Stanley McChrystal about his engrossing new book Team of Teams and the third part of our seven Hillsdale Dialogues with Hillsdale’s president Dr. Larry Arnn discussing the third of the seven Lincoln-Douglas debates.  The audiobook recreating the debates we will be referring to and hearing clips from, featuring David Strathairn as Lincoln and Richard Dreyfuss as Douglas, can be ordered here. This is a most amazing work, this recreation, and you should listen to them for yourselves. All of the Hillsdale Dialogues, beginning with Homer and bringing us thus far to 1858, are available here at  I am gratified to hear about all the binge-listening going on to this series which began in January of 2013.

On The Adam Carolla Show

Friday, June 12, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

I had great fun with Adam Carolla, Gina, Bald Bryan and the entire team taping a show yesterday, even though it meant listening to the Cavs lose on the radio rather than watching them do so.  Carolla maintains more energy in a studio for an extended period of time than I have seen in nearly three decades of broadcasting.  If you aren’t already listening to his podcast, you can start with our conversation.  But to the faint of heart, you will hear a few words and subjects along the way that may make your hair turn as white as mine.  Defintiely not for the easily offended.

Because They Got Nothing Else

Fasten your seat belts, It’s going to be a bumpy campaign.  Ann Althouse notes (HT: Instapundit) that a NPR host Diane Rehm used a very McCarthyesque tactic to make sure everyone knows Bernie Sanders is Jewish.  Said Althouse:

An outright lie about him doesn’t work, does it? Well, yes it does! It made everyone take notice that Bernie Sanders is Jewish. He’s not an Israeli citizen. That’s cleared up, but the impression remains: He’s Jewish. That stirs up any free-floating anti-Jewishness that may be useful to his opponent.

Yep, that’s about it.  I don’t know what is spookier, the “list” reference that Rehm made to justify her “question” – a tactic quoted from the Joe McCarthy handbook – or the echoes of Mike Huckabee’s “innocent” question to a NYTimes reporter about Mormons in the lead up to the Iowa Caucus’ in 2007/8.  This kind of thing is beyond hardball politics – it’s just playing dirty.  It drives a wedge into fissures in our society that we are desperately trying to heal.

Senator Ted Cruz on 2016, TPA, TPP And The Islamic State

Thursday, June 11, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Texas Senator Ted Cruz joined me on today’s show:




HH: Happy to welcome United States Senator Ted Cruz to the program. Senator Cruz, welcome back, it’s great to have you, as always.

TC: Hugh, it’s always great to be with you.

HH: You had a good night last night. I was reading at CNN that three of the top ten conservative donors have announced they’ve banked $37 million dollars in support of your bid, and you were with some of those people at the Knickerbocker Club last night. That’s always a good night.

TC: It has been really tremendous. The fundraising support we’ve seen both from major dollar donors who’ve given the superPAC over $37 million dollars, and then from grassroots donors, where just in the very first week, we raised another $4.3 million dollars from over 51,000 contributions, people in all 50 states going to and supporting the campaign. And it really has been breathtaking, the energy… Continue Reading
