  • Rex Tillerson’s firing was necessary to national security

    On my first show for MSNBC last June, I sat down at Langley with CIA Director Mike Pompeo, now President Trump’s nominee for secretary of state. A quick read of the transcript will not only explain the sudden change at Foggy Bottom but also should reassure any fair-minded person that a much-needed infusion of talent and presidential trust is on the way. It’s been hard to find anyone in the White House to say a bad word about the character or personality of Rex Tillerson or a good word about his leadership at State. The friction between the White House...

    I’ve got a beef with Hugh Hewitt. Why does he exclude people from US conservative publications from his “Young Guns” panel on his Saturday morning MSNBC show? His panel today, as it has been before, was comprised of reporters from the Daily Mail, Washington Post, NBC News and Politico. All but the Daily Mail lean left, and the Daily Mail is a UK-based outfit, though it’s been expanding operations into the US. Why not someone from, e.g, Breitbart, National Review, Daily Caller, Weekly Standard, Commentary, etc? Putting that aside for now, Hewitt quickly managed to work in a presidential prediction....

    CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta said reporters must change the way they have traditionally done their jobs in order to effectively cover President Trump. In an interview Tuesday on radio host Hugh Hewitt's show, Acosta defended his often confrontational approach to questioning White House officials.
  • Hugh Hewitt predicating Roy Moore will lose election

    12/11/2017 6:37:31 AM PST · by MAGA2017 · 123 replies
    Hugh Hewitt is predicting that Democrat Doug Jones will defeat Roy Moore tomorrow. I used to listen to Hewitt's radio program on a regular basis but he's gotten increasingly pretentious and he's part of the never Trump crowd. He's citing the apparent lack of Roy Moore signs in Alabama signs but isn't acknowledging that Jones is getting more financial support from the Democrat party. Jones is supported by the media while they attack Moore 24/7. Looking forward to Hewitt being proven wrong again. He said Trump should have dropped out of the race in 2016 because he couldn't win.

    I was just listening to conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt. He sounded pretty confident that Roy Moore is going to lose. He said that there are absolutely no rot Moore signs in Alabama and that the Democrats are super energized. He said this is going to cost president Trump a lot of political capital. Is there anyone in Alabama that can say how things actually are there?

    For the debut of his MSNBC show this morning, Hugh Hewitt scored the first news network interview with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Debunking an assertion made by some, Pompeo said he couldn’t “imagine a statement that is anymore false” than the notion that Trump isn’t interested in intel. Pompeo stated that he personally meets with Trump for 35-40 minutes virtually every day, that Trump is an “avid consumer” of intel, and asks great questions. View the video here.

    Did you know that one of the nation's most momentous historical events is about to take place on June 8? No? Then you missed Meet The Press host Chuck Todd on June 4 hilariously hype or rather, over-hype, the upcoming testimony by former FBI Director James Comey before the Senate Intelligence Committee. It is impossible to exaggerate the amount of over the top significance that Todd lent to this testimony so watch the following video to see Chuck go into Comey testimony hype overdrive.

    Hugh Hewitt sets up Tom Barrack's Sunday "Meet the Press" interview with Chuck Todd and himself. Mr. Barrack is the Chairman of the Inaugural Committee and says that his team was responsible for providing the White House with the crowd numbers. Not included was Chris Matthews noting how reasonable and intelligent Barrack is and follows that up with saying Trump is the same way in person. Adding that Trump is a great listener as well. Matthews continues to say that the public gets a Trump that everyone who personally has met and knows him does not recognize. You can watch...

    Is anyone at the New York Times pro-life? Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor won’t say. On today’s Hardball, discussion turned to Donald Trump’s charge that the media elites are biased against him. Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt posited that 90% of the Manhattan/Beltway elite will be voting for Hillary and applauding her election. To test Hewitt’s theory, Chris Matthews asked Alcindor whether she knew anybody at the Times who was pro-life. She first responded, “I’m not going to answer that question.” To his credit, Matthews pressed the question, but Alcindor continued to dodge, eventually saying she hadn’t asked any of her co-workers...

    You know that feeling when during an interview or a debate your guy is hit with a question, and you sit there just praying that he will give a certain answer? Wish fulfilled for this Insurrectionist during Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today. Reid asked conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt whether he doesn’t “worry” about how a President Donald Trump would make a life-or-death decision given his “comportment and demeanor.” Shot back the nimble Hewitt: “No. I am much more worried about Secretary Clinton fleeing the State Department at 1:00 A.M in the morning on the night of Benghazi.” Zing!

    There was a time when people like Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Erick Erickson were powerful voices within the Conservative movement. That was BT or “Before Trump,” when most American Conservatives were asleep at the wheel and operating on status quo neo-conservative autopilot, completely unaware that the maverick radio voices we hailed as rebels, were actually globalist shills-for-hire. The silent majority was silent because we were napping, however, Trump has awakened the slumbering giant and we’re hip to the globalist trick played upon us by so-called radio conservatives, politicians, media, and pundits, who subtly pepper falsehoods like, amnesty is good,...

    As Katie noticed, Bill Clinton couldn't stay awake during his wife's historic speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night. Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine even felt the need to try and block the camera from noticing the embarrassing moment. Donald Trump's running mate Mike Pence told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Friday that would never happen to the GOP nominee's audience. "Let me assure you, having been on the road with Donald Trump most of this week, there would never be a need for an elbow," Pence said. "I’ve never been around anybody who’s more energetic, more determined, more focused....

The video of Shapiro's previous appearance at the summit two years ago is the most widely-viewed video of any speech ever given at the summit, and this time was no different; of all the speeches given, Shapiro's speech was...

    Sen. Marco Rubio said Monday that seeking another term as a senator from Florida has not been part of his family's plan, but the mass shooting Sunday in Orlando has given him pause about his future. "My family and I will be praying about all this, and we'll see what I need to do next with my life with regards to how I can best serve," the former presidential candidate told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. 50 people including the gunman were killed in the shooting at a gay nightclub, Pulse, in Orlando early Sunday morning. Hewitt asked if Rubio...

    Conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt believes Republican delegates should change the convention rules and nominate someone other than Donald Trump for president. On his Wednesday morning show, Hewitt likened sticking with the presumptive GOP nominee to “ignoring Stage 4 cancer. You can’t do it, you gotta go attack it.” “And right now the Republican Party is facing — the plane is headed towards the mountain after the last 72 hours,” he said.

    Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt suggests the Republican Party should change the rules ahead of the GOP National Convention so presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump can be replaced. “It’s like ignoring stage-four cancer. You can’t do it, you gotta go attack it,” Hewitt says. “And right now the Republican Party is facing — the plane is headed towards the mountain after the last 72 hours.” “I wanna support the nominee of the party, but I think the party ought to change the nominee. Because we’re going to get killed with this nominee,” he added.
