“Sailing through the Greek Crisis” By Clark S. Judge

Thursday, July 2, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The weekly column from Clark Judge:

“Sailing through the Greek Crisis”
By Clark S. Judge: managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc.; chairman, Pacific Research Institute

Last week, as Greece, and, as a result of Greece, the EU, were approaching a point of no return in their five-year economic and financial crisis, I was put-putting with four school buddies in a boat through the Greek Islands -– our ports of call a tour of life before the deluge.

That life was a grand life. Over dinner in one small port, we cheered and clapped in rhythm as a line of waiters danced to the theme of Zorba the Greek. Several very watchable women joined in. Their effervescence and energy left me musing that this must be why Ulysses took so long to find his way home. Continue Reading

Forget Strategic, What About Rational?

Thursday, July 2, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

So, I run across this piece about Obama’s foreign policy strategy, or lack thereof:

What comes through clearly from this and other articles, as well as memoirs from Administration insiders and foreign counterparts, is how much of what passes for “big picture” thinking in the White House is purely reactionary–not to events in the world but to what are perceived as the sins and errors of past American policy.

The author, Steven Postrel, in the preceding paragraph makes a compelling case for how there is not single strategy or guiding principle for how this administration does things: Continue Reading

Senator Lindsey Graham On The Looming Appeasement Of Iran And Breaking The Filibuster

Wednesday, July 1, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham joined me Wednesday to discuss the aftermath of the Charleston murders, the looming appeasement of Iran, and whether the filibuster in the Senate rules should be preserved even if it blocks a new Republican president from repealing Obamacare:




HH: So pleased to welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show United States Senator Lindsey Graham from Mason City, Iowa, this afternoon and evening. Hello, Senator Graham, welcome back.

LG: I am almost to the Music Man place.

HH: Welcome. I want to begin by asking you the straight up question, a lot of Republican candidates are calling to break the Senate filibuster rules in order to make sure we can repeal Obamacare, root and branch. Ted Cruz has just finished defending the filibuster. What’s Lindsey Graham say on that debate?

LG: I’m with Ted. Absolutely not. I would never vote to change the filibuster for Obamacare or anything else, because it served the country well. But what I would do is use reconciliation, the budget process that they used to pass Obamacare, to repeal Obamacare. But I wouldn’t change the Senate rules. Reconciliation only requires a majority vote if it’s in with the context of the budget. That’s how they passed Obamacare with 51 votes. Continue Reading

Governor Mike Huckabee On 2016, Breaking The Filibuster, and The Iran Deal

Wednesday, July 1, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee joined me on Wednesday’s show:




HH: I’m so pleased to begin today’s program with the former governor Arkansas and star of the Fox News Channel, Mike Huckabee. Governor Huckabee, welcome from Cherokee, Iowa. I guess you’re at the VFW hall there.

MH: Well, I am, Hugh. We’ve got another rally. We’ve been covering some ground in Iowa today, which I’ll be doing a lot of between now and next February.

HH: Well, it was good to see you this past weekend in Denver where you wowed the crowds. But I’d like to begin by talking to you about, is it fair to call Hillary Clinton your old friend, Mike Huckabee?

MH: I doubt she would attribute it that way. Her husband and I got along much better. She is not quite the warm and fuzzy person that Bill Clinton is. And you know, I know them well, and of course, every election I ever had to run, what I really ran against, Hugh, was her political machine that she and her husband had built over a 25 year period. And I can attest to the fact that it is a formidable force. Continue Reading
