    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....

    ...Donald Trump came, saw and conquered. His children went four for four in terrific speeches with Ivanka almost stealing the night from her father.

    The Western Conservative Summit, organized by the Centennial Institute of Colorado Christian University, convened this weekend, with luminaries speaking including prospective GOP nominee Donald Trump, Senators Ben Sasse and Tom Cotton, former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, TV star Phil Robertson, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, radio hosts Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt, and Erick Erickson, and Daily Wire Editor-in Chief Ben Shapiro. 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...

    On the day that Donald Trump secured the delegates necessary to become the Republican nominee with 75% of the vote in California and 80% of the vote in New Jersey, radio personality Hugh Hewitt called for Republican insiders to change the convention rules and deny Trump the nomination he has definitively won at the polls. So much for elections...

    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.

    Virtually every prominent mover and shaker in talk radio gathered at Hofstra University on Long Island, N.Y., yesterday for the “Talkers 2016: Bridging the Generations” conference. On stage, radio hosts and industry experts spoke of the “disruption” in the industry — the challenges and opportunities brought on by the technical innovation sweeping every facet of communications. In the halls, I asked a few famous talkers about the astounding “disruption” of this year’s presidential election, in which modern politics has been turned on its head.

    Hewitt said, “I did have Reince on my radio show this morning. I agree with him—this campaign is so fundamentally different it’s hard to gauge who cares what about anything. There’s a great book out there, it’s probably the most important business book of the last twenty years, by Clayton Christensen at Harvard Business School, called the Innovator’s Dilemma. It talks about the fact that sometimes customers are overwhelmed by disruptive innovators. Donald Trump is that. He has interrupted everything about this cycle. And media has trouble. “President Obama and Hillary Clinton has trouble figuring out what to do with...

    PJ Media ^ | 3-17-2016 | ROGER L SIMON
    Hugh was reading from his own CNN op-ed, "Get ready for an open Republican convention." The gist of his argument is that Trump will probably not make the 1,237 delegates necessary to win the nomination outright.  Then, at the convention, after the first ballot when Trump's delegates must vote for him, they will start to hemorrhage for other candidates, mainly Cruz, who, via his vaunted ground game, has implanted the state delegations with representatives secretly sympathetic to the Texas senator. Hugh calls them Cruz's "double agents." Hewitt (dubbed "NostrHUGHdamus" by a listener) predicts the nomination eventually will fall to a Cruz-Kasich or Kasich-Cruz ticket. Never mind that these...

    The Republican National Committee has ended a debate partnership with National Review after the venerable conservative magazine devoted its new issue to a "symposium" of reasons why voters should reject Donald Trump's presidential campaign. "We expected this was coming," the magazine's publisher Jack Fowler wrote in a blog post late Thursday night, just 90 minutes after the symposium went live. "Small price to pay for speaking the truth about The Donald." RNC spokesman Sean Spicer Fowler's account of events, and added in a comment to Buzzfeed's Rosie Gray that "a debate moderator can't have a predisposition." That leaves CNN, Salem...
