Our Dark View Of The World

Tuesday, April 21, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

I am quite certain not everyone watches for superhero movies like I do.  They are a life long passion for me.  So when new trailers for superhero movies are released, I look.  With the release of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron less than two weeks away, the trailers, teasers, inside looks, and interviews are coming hot and heavy.  Worry not, I will not make you suffer through the diatribe on the potential pitfalls this movie faces to which my Facebook friends were treated.

Amongst fandom, perhaps as strongly anticipated as the Avengers movie is Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice set for release next year.  Last week the first teaser trailer dropped.  It is a very dark and brooding thing.  This is something very different from the colorful and truly heroic characters of my youth.  In this most modern of takes, colors are muted, the world is dark and heroes are questioned.

This was made most apparent as almost immediately a spoof trailer dropped featuring the soundtrack of the new movie trailer and scenes from the Adam West Batman material and the Christopher Reeve Superman stuff.  It was meant, I think, to show how silly those old versions were, but it also showed something missing from the newer version.  In the new view our heroes have power, but we need more to worry about what could go wrong than how they have helped us.  We are more in fear of what bad might happen instead of grasping at the good that could happen.  Those with power are immediately under suspicion.

Wisconsin’s Shame

Tuesday, April 21, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

David French’s National Review article on the “John Doe” investigations that plagued Wisconsin conservatives over the past few years is a chilling and very necessary piece of writing, perhaps the best article of the year, and worthy of wide dissemination.

It is also a glimpse of the future if the country doesn’t put and enforce limits on the unions in the public sector.

It is also, most important of all, a reminder that a political prosecutor is the worst nightmare of an individual innocent of everything except the wrong opinions.

“Out Where The West Begins”

Sunday, April 19, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

My Washington Examiner column Monday concerns the new book Out Where The West Begins by Phil Anschutz –and the 2016 GOP race.

The book is a wonderful read, and for reasons discussed in the column, a very useful one for anyone questing to be the Republican nominee in 2016.

NBC’s Chuck Todd On The Start Of Campaign 2016

Friday, April 17, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

NBC’s Chuck Todd joined me on Friday’s show:




HH: Beginning this hour with Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s Meet The Press on Sunday. Chuck, with everything going on, including the consulate bombing in Irbil, I don’t even know what you’re going to start with. But it’s got to be, I assume, the Hillary-Rubio launch of the week and everything going on in Campaign ’16, right?

CT: Yeah, it’s a really, it’s hard to do anything other than ’16 this week. You know, it’s funny you say that. Yes, there’s a lot going on, but when you really think about it, and your show has reflected this. I think last week, we reflected this again. And you know, it’s very likely I have the newest candidate in the race also on the show this week, John Kasich.

HH: Oh.

CT: So, and I think within the, I think it’s possible he may use his New Hampshire speech tomorrow to formally announce, or at least the exploratory, or we’ll see what he says on Sunday. But you know, he now is clearly moving in that direction, too. So it’s ultra-busy now.

HH: You know, you can get under the Governor’s skin by pointing out that he only carried 86 out of 88 counties in Ohio, what went wrong in those two counties. I think that could get him going.

CT: You know what’s interesting with Kasich to me is actually, if you look at the two leading, you know, if you want to choose semi-establishment leaning guys, right, or at least in the polls, Walker and Bush, I can make an argument that Kasich, if you somehow took the best attributes that you liked about Walker and Bush, you’d get John Kasich.

HH: That’s a good argument. You know what’s going to be interesting as just a professional matter, I love the Governor. He’s a friend. You can’t get him to stop talking, so good luck. I mean, you can’t.

CT: It’s funny you say that. That was what was so much fun about covering him in ’99. This is one of the, he was a candidate that I would actually actively go seek and follow in Iowa, because he was a little looser, right? He was a little less formal. And he was, you know, it’ll be interesting to see how he handles being more of an establishment guy. You know, he was sort of a, he was an insurgent, and he had that insurgent feel about him on the trail, and I think it goes to the fact that he likes to answer a question. Let’s put it that way.
