“Victim” As Bully

Thursday, June 11, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

One of the most accomplished scientists in his field, a Nobel Laureate for Pete’s sake, has, obviously under duress, resigned his post because of some very un-PC things he said about women in science.  Even a neanderthal like myself recognizes the lack of wisdom in what he said in the current environment, but I can most certainly cite examples in my own experience that both support and refute his statements.  Therefore, when measured by the standards of truth, his statements are at best overly generalized, but they most certainly do not rise to the level of untruth, or any other objective standard that would warrant his removal.  This is political witch hunt of the purest and most ugly kind.

Those that have driven this man from his position no doubt claim to be “victims” of this man’s “bias and prejudice;” however it seems quite plain to me that they are using the claim of victimhood as a justification for victimizing.  The man may be a misogynistic ape-man, but that does not change the fact that he is an extraordinarily good biologist and that any student that could bear to be in his presence would not help but benefit from being there.   If no woman ever again studied under him, biology is still better because of his work and the men that would continue to work under him.

Congressman Rob Wittman On The Ohio Class Submarine Replacement Funding

Thursday, June 11, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Virginia Congressman Rob Wittman is the chairman of the Subcommittee on Readiness of the House Armed Services Committee and he was my guest today, calling in from the House cloakroom as the debate on the Defense Appropriations bill churned into the early hours of the evening.

Listeners to my show know that I regularly ask GOP presidential candidates for their commitment to timely and fully funded replacement submarines for our Ohio class fleet that carry one third off our nuclear deterrent.  Chairman Wittman is particularly conversant with this subject, and we went into the deep details on this one:




HH: Rob Wittman is now joining us. Congressman, great to have you back, how are you?

RW: Hugh, it’s great to be with you. I apologize about being late, but we’re off and on the floor here with some amendments on the Defense Appropriations Act, so I was just talking about Gitmo detainees and getting ready to go back on the floor and talk about our ballistic missile submarines. But it’s great to be with you.

HH: Well then, this is really breaking news. Are we going to get the funding we need for the ballistic missile submarine, Ohio-Class replacement?

RW: Well you know, that’s exactly what we’re going to the floor to, Congressman Randy Forbes, myself and Congressman Courtney are going there to argue against the language that’s in the proposed appropriations act that would take money out of this sea-based deterrence fund, which is the money specifically for the Ohio-Class submarine. And they want to try to fund it through the shipbuilding fund, which only has about $16 billion dollars in it. These ships are going to be about $7 billion dollars a copy, so if you do that, you’re going to take money away from other ships, which we believe strongly we need to be building more ships, not fewer, not taking money away, but actually putting money in. This national sea-based deterrence fund is the way we believe to fund the Ohio-Class replacement. It was the way the Ohio-Class submarines were funded to begin with. So we’re fighting to make sure that language stays in there. Continue Reading

Chairman Paul Ryan On TPA and Ex-Im

Wednesday, June 10, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan joined me in the second hour today to promote Trade Promotion Authority, and replied in the course of doing so to criticisms of TPA made earlier in the show by Texas Governor Rick Perry and to my belief that Congress ought to combine TPA with Ex-Im and pass both bills to help American exports:




HH: Joined now by the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Paul Ryan. Mr. Chairman, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show, great to have you.

PR: Good to be with you, Hugh. How are you doing?

HH: I’m great. I have a new book coming out next week, The Queen, which has a chapter about you in it. So I hope you haven’t read that, yet.

PR: Really? Oh, send it to me.

HH: Okay, I will. Absolutely. Hey, you’re out on the road promoting trade promotion authority, and we’ve been talking a lot about it. I’m a big proponent of it. But Rick Perry was just on, and I want to play for you what Governor Perry had to say and get your reaction to it.

PR: Sure.

HH: Earlier today, Governor Perry, Breitbart reported that you had turned against the Trans-Pacific Partnership and would urge Republicans to block the trade promotion authority. Paul Ryan will be on later this hour to urge Republicans to vote for that. Have you flip-flopped on this?

PR: Well, listen, as you find out information, I don’t mind, just like with the Ex-Im Bank, I believe that America has to be a competitor out there. I think that we have to do everything we can to sell our products around the world. But with the Ex-Im Bank, when it became abundantly clear of the fraud and the corruption that was going on there, I finally said listen, I can’t support you anymore. At this particular point in time, this thing needs to go away. And the TPP has now become that type of an animal, if you will. And when you will not tell a Congress, and when you will not tell the American people what is in a trade agreement, Washington has a real issue with trust as it is. Continue Reading

Former Texas Governor Rick Perry On His Trans-Pacific Partnership Stance

The Transcript:

HH: Lots going on around the world, including the President’s decision to send 450 more troops to Iraq. I’m joined by former Texas Governor Rick Perry to talk about that and many other issues. Governor Perry, welcome back, it’s always a pleasure to have you on the program.

RP: Hugh, it’s good to be with you, sir. How are things in your world?

HH: It’s great. I had on yesterday Alan Wilson, the very talented Attorney General from South Carolina. Since we cover South Carolina, you kown, Up Country and Myrtle Beach and Charleston, he tells me you’re going to visit South Carolina a lot. But you’re a Johnny Manziel backer, and he’s a Connor Shaw backer. And Manziel and Shaw are both wanting to play for the Browns. So I don’t know if you and Alan Wilson are going to be able to get along here, Rick.

RP: You know what? That’s why competition is so good. That’s why the 10th Amendment matters. Competition, whether it’s on the football field or whether it’s the states, or for that matter, whether it’s globally, that’s the message that we’re going to be talking about over the next 12-18 months.
