Hugh Hewitt: Charlottesville Violence and the Legal Consequences

8/18/2017
More
All law students taking a First Amendment course, or even a constitutional law survey course, learn the rule of Brandenburg v. Ohio, a case that grew out of a 1964 KKK rally near Cincinnati. Brandenburg provides “that the constitutional guarantees of free speech and free press do not permit a State to forbid or proscribe advocacy of using force or of law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such...

Michael Medved: The Overhyped “Dangerous Divisions”

8/17/2017
More
Following the horrible events in Charlottesville, Virginia, the public seems deeply alarmed at the deep and dangerous divisions in the country. But what are the substantive issues that actually divide the country? When it comes to hate festivals staged by neo-Nazis and the KKK, there is virtually no disagreement: nearly every American, left or right, and certainly including President Trump, strongly condemns the racial extremism of such fringe groups. But all sides also agree they have a...

Hugh Hewitt: A Hard Lesson: Presidents Don’t Get Mulligans

8/16/2017
More
On Monday, the president gave a formal response to the alt-right, neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville in which he denounced the KKK, racism and neo-Nazi groups in no uncertain terms. He ought to be commended for his clear statement on Monday. But—there’s no doubt about it—he ought to have made that statement on Saturday and he ought not to have given that press conference on Tuesday. It’s a hard lesson but a lesson that’s worth stating: presidents don’t get mulligans. When the challenger...

Albert Mohler: Why Is It Fine to Criticize Christianity but Not Islam?

8/15/2017
More
A public radio station in Berkeley, California, KPFA, recently disinvited world-renowned scientist Richard Dawkins due to his alleged “abusive speech” about Islam. Over the years, Richard Dawkins has basically insulted the intelligence of anyone and everyone who believes in God. He has made extremely caustic comments about Christianity and every other theistic worldview, including Islam. Dawkins says the station’s accusation that he has engaged in abusive speech about Islam is libel....

Hugh Hewitt: Supporting Our Troops in Dangerous Times

8/15/2017
More
Recently an Iranian drone came within 100 yards of an American F-18 in the Persian Gulf. After a U.S. Navy ship fired warning shot, an Iran Navy patrol boat charged our ship before veering away. Recently I asked National Security Advisor General H. R. McMaster if the rules of engagement for U.S. forces operating in close proximity to the increasingly reckless Iranian forces were clear. General McMaster gave an emphatic “yes”—and also noted that President Trump would stand behind any American...

Lanhee Chen: The Real-World Impact of Regulatory Reform

8/11/2017
More
On the campaign trail last year, Donald Trump vowed repeatedly to cut and limit federal regulations that threaten to kill jobs and restrict economic growth. So far, he’s made good on that promise. A study just out from the American Action Network found that in their first six months, the Trump administration has proposed regulations at a far slower rate than during a similar period of time during the Obama administration. And for every new regulation the Trump administration has proposed,...

It's Time to Focus on the North Korean Madman

Hugh Hewitt: The Media's Hyperbole Over Trump's "Fire and Fury" Comments

8/10/2017
More
President Trump’s “fire and fury” comments about North Korea set off the predictable hyperbole among his blindly furious foes on the cable shows, few of whom seem to grasp that the North Korea crisis has been growing since almost the Armistice was signed and accelerating since Bill Clinton’s much-celebrated then and understood as disastrous today deal of 1994. Neither George W. Bush’s nor Barack Obama’s various diplomatic overtures yielded much besides more tests, more time, and now more...

Albert Mohler: Oregon to Compel Its Citizens to Pay for Abortion

8/9/2017
More
Oregon legislators earlier in the summer adopted legislation that will now make Oregon not only the state with the most liberal abortion laws in the nation, but also the only state that will now compel all of its citizens to pay for abortion. As the editors of the National Review commented, “Once upon a time, Democrats wanted abortion to be ‘safe, legal, and rare.’ Today, that mantra is ‘unregulated, on demand, and’—in the state of Oregon—‘free.’” ABC News indicated just how radical this law...

Albert Mohler: Death Of Charlie Gard Is Tragically Revealing

8/8/2017
More
There are still very important lessons to learn from the life and death of little Little Charlie Gard. Over the course of the last several weeks, no story has been as important as the tragedy of this little baby in the United Kingdom with a rare mitochondrial disease. His story first came to world attention when his parents made a public appeal to the people of Britain and all around the world of the fact that they were no longer able to make decisions on behalf of their infant son and his...

Michael Medved: Necessary Allies, Not Implacable Enemies

8/7/2017
More
To place our polarized politics in proper perspective, conservatives need to look back at the nearly half-century struggle known as “the Cold War.” The Soviet Union and its satellites really did amount to an “Evil Empire” and the US and our allies constituted the necessary counterweight of goodness and decency. But many of the most important nations in the West—including Britain, France, Germany and Canada—were really “welfare states” with centralized, government-dominated economic policies,...

Hugh Hewitt: The North Korean Nuclear Crisis And China Trade

8/4/2017
More
There isn’t going to be a trade war with China. The risks of a real war with North Korea are now simply too high. General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, has said—and I quote—“It is not unimaginable to have a military option to respond to the North Korean nuclear capability. What’s unimaginable to me is allowing a capability that will allow a nuclear weapon to land in Denver, Colorado.” Hisense Electric, a Chinese state-owned tech manufacturer, is now being sued in California...

"Can General Kelly Bring Military Discipline to the White House?"

8/4/2017
More
The Townhall Review--August 5, 2017. President Trump enthusiastically welcomes newly appointed General John Kelly as the new Chief of Staff. Hugh Hewitt speaks with James Hohman, Political Correspondent for the Washington Post, about how General Kelly is shaking things up at the White House. Mike Gallagher turns to Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller on the White House staff scandal involving a now arrested aide to the former DNC Head Debby Wasserman Schultz. Michael Medved speaks with Wisconsin...

Hugh Hewitt: Venezuela’s Maduro Is Now a Dictator

8/2/2017
More
Nicolas Maduro, president—really dictator—of Venezuela recently held a sham election to rewrite the country’s constitution. The pretext for the vote was to create a new National Constituent Assembly to draft a new Venezuelan constitution. Speaking in the White House briefing room, General H.R. McMaster said, “The sham election of the National Constituent Assembly [in Venezuela] represents a very serious blow to democracy in our hemisphere. Maduro is not just a bad leader. He is now a...

Mike Gallagher: The Good News You’re Hearing Little About

8/1/2017
More
Nothing is more frustrating to me as an American than the distraction that is the mainstream media. So many wonderful things are happening in this great country of ours, but they get lost in the obsession with the latest drama in Washington D.C. For example, President Donald Trump recently announced that Foxconn—a Taiwanese high tech company—will be building a 10 billion dollar manufacturing facility for the production of LCD screens in Wisconsin, creating literally thousands of American...

Hugh Hewitt: Our Depleted Judiciary

7/31/2017
More
It has been rumored in Washington that President Trump may fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Although this is possible, it would be ill advised on the part of the president. If he and his staff are indeed innocent and have not colluded with the Russians (and there is no evidence to date that they have), then this will be over. Robert Mueller will not indict simply for the sake of indicting. If, on the...

Mark Davis: Priority One for the American Armed Services

7/29/2017
More
President Trump’s recent announcement to disallow service by transgendered individuals is an opportunity to remind ourselves what military service is—and what it is not. The Armed Services should not be a lab for social experiments, a testing ground for inclusion or a battleground in the sexual revolution. The American military should choose whom to admit and accommodate based on one factor alone: assembling the best possible fighting force for fighting and winning wars. Any policy that...

Mike Gallagher turns to Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the President, on how the mainstream media spins information while leaving out the finer points of healthcare reform or tax reform. Dr. Ben Carson, United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, speaks with Michael Medved about his plan to improve homeless conditions. Scott Pruitt,...

Lanhee Chen: We Should Listen to Senator McCain

7/28/2017
More
I hope you heard about Senator John McCain’s heroic to the floor of the United States Senate to keep the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare alive. We should—and his colleagues should—listen. With reference to “their deliberations” he said: “They can be sincere and principled. But they are more partisan, more tribal more of the time than any other time I remember.” Senator McCain has seen and accomplished much during his decades as an elected official, in service to the people of Arizona...
