Happy 239th USMC

Monday, November 10, 2014  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

My late father-in-law, USMC Colonel Wilbur Helmer, second from the left, somewhere in the Pacific during WW2, when he was most definitely not a colonel.  No notes on the picture as to the other four Marines, only the notation “Approved by Navy Censor.”  My brother-in-law George, also a career USMC officer, guesses this is Bouganville in 1943, though “Colonel Will” as I called him, also served in the Guam and Okinawa campaigns. George also suspects but can’t be sure that the Marine that is second from the right is Tony Walker, a lifelong friend of Will’s, and a USMC legend, though that would likely make the photo from Guam or Okinawa.

“The GOP Establishment, the Tea Party and 2016″ By Clark S. Judge

Monday, November 10, 2014  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The weekly column from Clark Judge:

The GOP Establishment, the Tea Party and 2016

By Clark S. Judge: managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc.; chairman, Pacific Research Institute

Sunday’s New York Times ran this top of the fold, front-page headline (left column, meaning the number two story of the day), “Before Battling Democrats, GOP is Fighting Itself.”


To some extent The Times was trying to stoke the flames of Republican division. Even so, the Tea Party v. the Establishment is all the buzz in Washington just now.  Will the Republicans rip themselves apart before Mitch McConnell even takes up the reins of the Senate majority leader?  Inquiring minds want to know.

The Transcript:

HH: I’m joined now by NBC’s Chuck Todd, host of Meet The Press, who I hope to pin down for an hour long interview about The Stranger, which I understand arrived at my house when I was on the East Coast, Chuck. Congratulations on the publication of your new book.

CT: Well, thank you, thank you. It’s only three years too late. Three years late as my publisher might say, but so goes trying to write a book while you’ve got a day job.

HH: Yeah, publisher shmublishers. They have to deal with it. Now look, you’ve got a problem. Such a slow news week. What are you going to do on Sunday?

CT: I know. You know, we’re still trying to make it up as we go along.  Continue Reading

RNC Chair Reince Priebus On The GOP’s Effort In Louisiana Senate Run-off, And Next Steps On Immigration

Saturday, November 8, 2014  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

GOP Chair Reince Priebus, fresh from the deepest and widest Republican triumph in decades as measured by sheer number of GOP office holders across the federal and state governments, joined me to start today’s show.

The audio:


The transcript:

HH: The guy who made all of this big red wave possible, which has come ashore in Kentucky with the new Leader, and in Arizona with the new governor and attorney general, and hopefully Martha McSally is the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus. When last I talked with the chairman, it was Election Night, and we had seen a little bit of the tide coming in. Reince Priebus, three days later, it was one heck of a wave.

RP: Yeah, it was, and I don’t know if you remember, but back in March of this year, I said it was going to be a tsunami. And I got kind of some heat for it, and maybe I probably shouldn’t have said that anyway, but it turned out to be true. And what I take away from it is a couple of things. One, of course, is there’s this media narrative that it’s true, it was a total rejection of Barack Obama, his policies and everyone connected to those policies. But the other thing that was, is very true, is that it was also the acceptance of conservative reformers and their presentation, whether it be Scott Walker, Bruce Rauner, you had Rick Snyder, Baker in Massachusetts, Hogan in Maryland. So on one hand, they rejected the Obama agenda, and they accepted the conservative reformer agenda. And one last thing, because I think it’s important for people to remember and push back on this narrative. There’s another narrative out there that says that really what this is about is that people are sick of everybody. They’re sick of all, every person there is involved in Washington. Well, if that were the case, how come it only affected Democrats? You didn’t hear about big Republican incumbents going down on Tuesday night. Continue Reading
