“While America Slept” by Robert C. O’Brien

Thursday, September 15, 2016  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

I’ll be talking with Robert O’Brien about his new book on Thursday’s show.  I still maintain that everyone on Team Trump should be carrying around a copy if only to get the message to MSM about what has been happening for nearly eight years. While America Slept in bookstores and shipping from Amazon now:

Chuck Todd On the Two Paths to 270 Electoral Votes

The transcript:

HH: Here to talk about that and much more, host of NBC’s Meet the Press every single Sunday, Chuck Todd. But it’s not Meet the Press Chuck Todd I want to talk to today. It’s Hot Line Chuck Todd. Before he became international star of stage and screen, Chuck Todd toiled in the Hot Line dungeon looking at numbers, looking, it’s why he knows what he’s talking about. Chuck, we are in a flood of numbers this morning. Which ones stand out?

CT: Well, look, I’m going to sit here and say in some ways, it’s, what stands out to me this week, so last week was the story of erosion for Clinton. This week, the story is Trump is actually gaining, right? Before, it was just Clinton vote going away, and it was sprinkling into undecided, Gary Johnson, Jill Stein. To me, the big trend line is look, and you know, some Democrats will nitpick. Oh, the party ID seems off here in this or that. But the trend line’s the same. He is actually now starting to tick up in the polls. This is, look, everything changes after the first debate, perhaps, but wow. This is going to be a rough ten days. Clinton, nobody needs this first debate to come sooner than Hillary Clinton.

HH: I am, was with Republicans on the Hill yesterday in between these various stops. And the Speaker was in and out, and the Leader, and among the groups there, and in an off the record meeting, I will not attribute to anyone, the confident statement was made, and it wasn’t by the Speaker or the Leader, Republican incumbents are ahead in every race in the country. Every single race, they’re ahead. The data does not prove that Hillary Clinton is lifting up Democrats.

CT: Nope.

HH: It doesn’t prove the…it just proves they’ve separated the presidential race from everything else.

CT: Totally have.

HH: Do you agree with that, Chuck Todd?

CT: No, I think the biggest development, look, Hillary Clinton may still win by six or seven at the end, right? The debates could fall apart, whatever may happen. That’s still possible. And Donald Trump might win. But here’s what I think is a fact. I think now I would rather be the Republicans when it comes to the Senate right now, the Senate battleground, than the Democrats. I think everything that has happened over the last six weeks has helped, you know, I think you’ve seen more and more Republicans have done a good job separating themselves from the presidential race, period. And I think Democrats mistakenly believed that they could just throw up, hey, Senator X is just like Trump, or Congressman Y is just like Trump, and that that would be effective. That was their whole game plan. Well, now that Trump is, you know, basically having some good weeks, that’s not working at the same time there’s demoralization in the Democratic base with Hillary Clinton right now. All of that is combined, I think, to put the Republicans in a much better position to hold, even if Clinton still wins. I think the message has been received by voters to separate the two in these Senate battlegrounds. Continue Reading

House Committee on Oversight and Government Affairs Chairman, Jason Chaffetz, On Yesterday’s Explosive Hearings on Secretary Clinton’s Email Server

The transcript:

HH: I am joined by Congressman Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight and Governmental Affairs Committee in the House wherein held an amazing hearing yesterday, the tape of which and audio of which I have been playing for you excerpts of this morning. Chairman Chaffetz, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt show, great to have you.

JC: Hey, Hugh, thanks for having me on.

HH: Was FBI Director Comey invited to yesterday’s hearing?

JC: No, absolutely not. Despite what Elijah Cummings said, no. I’ve never invited him to a hearing that he hasn’t shown up to. The one time I invited him, he did show up.

HH: All right. The question then comes after you learned everything you did yesterday, especially this clip. This clip is of Blake Farenthold asking Justin Cooper, the Clintons’ point person on the first server system, about hack attacks and evidence thereof. Here’s what Justin Cooper says, cut number 19.

BF: All right, did you turn over the logs and notifications that you received to the FBI, the email, of the brute force attacks?

JC: I did not turn those over to the FBI.

HH: Did that surprise you, Mr. Chairman?

JC: No, most everything about this surprises me. The very basic things you’re supposed to do, the FBI comes up and tells us that they didn’t have any evidence that anything had actually gotten through? And I think Blake Farenthold did a good job of highlighting that they didn’t turn over that information to the FBI. And if somebody was successful, how would a guy with no IT experience even know that it had happened? Continue Reading

Hillary’s Daily Crisis – What Does It Say About Us?

Monday, September 12, 2016  |  posted by John Schroeder

Hewitt tried to categorize all the crises that confront the Hillary Clinton campaign this morning, discussing her crisis of health, credibility, and character.  I have simply come to think of it as a crisis-a-day situation.  Even if it is new revelations regarding an older crisis it just seems like there is something else I need to read and deeply digest on a daily basis and frankly, I can’t keep up.  Unlike Hewitt and his journalistic colleagues, I have a day job.  I just don’t have the time to cement the names of the various service companies she used regarding the server(s) into my already very busy brain.  I’ve never worked for the federal government so the various classifications of secrecy are just something I have had no necessity to master.  I am not a doctor so the various types of pneumonia is not information that I have had to deal with routinely.  I am not a lawyer so the difference between the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and ITAR regulations are not in my daily stew.

But I do know enough to know that Hillary’s got a problem – a big one.  Why?  Because every time I do manage to break free from my normal routine and look into something, she has a problem there.  Now, while I am no expert in any of these fields, I certainly look into all of it more frequently and in greater depth than the average American.  So if I see “Hillary’s in trouble,” every time I look up, what do you think the average American is seeing?

It can’t be good.  And yet, at this writing, she remains a viable candidate.  That says more about us than it does her. Continue Reading
