Bibi Blows Off Biden and Fani Fades: The Week In Review

Ben Domenech and Sarah Bedford join Hugh for the week in review which centered on Israel’s indifference to the infirm president, the Fani Willis meltdown, Russia’s new weapons, and the urgent need to pass the national security supplemental. If Speaker Johnson has the votes, he can attach H.R. 2 to what the Senate sent over and send it back, or he can nod at the discharge petition and watch that sail through. Either way is fine by me, but if we can agree that Russia’s new threat in space adds clarity to their status vis-a-vis us, let’s get the aid to Israel, Taiwan and Ukraine stat.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Could Haley Beat Trump?

Could Nikki Haley actually beat Donald Trump for the nomination? Unlikely but possible, and the rush to say “No” suggests people who don’t follow politics closely. Trump is an enormous favorite, but…stuff happens. And a two-person race focuses on new issues. Hugh discusses this and is joined by guests Noah Rothman, Jim Talent, Mary Kissell, and Josh Kraushaar on the same subject.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Has former President Trump locked up the GOP nomination with his Iowa Avalanche?

Hugh talks about former President Trump’s appearance with Sean Hannity and Ambassador Haley’s CNN Townhall along with the realities of the polling. It is very difficult to see how any objective analyst doesn’t conclude Donald Trump is the prohibitive favorite to be the GOP nominee. Ben Domenech and Hugh discuss this reality as well as why the GOP must define 900 miles of Border Wall as a victory in the Supplemental negotiations and get that win or walk away. Plus, Sarah Bedford on the negotiations over the Wall and John Ondrasik’s new music video “OK."See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Ron DeSantis On The “Supplemental” That Joe Biden Wants

Build 900 Miles of Border Wall or Go Home Senate GOP

Hugh explains that the Senate GOP is close to blowing the 2024 election by proposing a “supplemental” funding deal for Israel (good), Ukraine (good) and “immigration law reform without a Wall” (awful.) The alleged Senate package is policy and political suicide coined by Senate staffers who never have to win elections. The Wall is 80% issue. If Democratic negotiators won’t agree to authorize it and appropriate the funds for its construction this year, walk away and run the election on that issue. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

War in Yemen, A Haley Surge, and the Border Wall

The U.S. and U.K. hit 60 targets overnight and President Biden —who made the Saudis stop their war against Houthis two years ago— did not make a televised statement. No surprise there as President Bumble racks up another national security fiasco and immigration negotiations are set to produce a bill that will fail unless a fully funded and authorized 900 miles of border wall are in it, with construction to be completed in 2024.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Election 2024: The Main Things Must Stay The Main Things: National Security and The Constitution

Hugh argues that Americans are losing focus on what is the opening phase of at least a major regional war begun on 10/7 by the depraved barbarians —losing their focus because it’s been diverted by the (very) important stories of the anti-Semitism at Harvard, Penn, etc and of course the presidential election. Today’s pod points to Commentary’s pod (which should be a daily listen) and to news sources that should be in everyone’s email each morning, “News Items” and “Daily Chatter” substacks. If you listen to this pod and Commentary and you spend 20 minutes reading News Items and Daily Chatter every M-F you will be better informed than 95% of Americans and 99% of “journalists” who love horse races and polls but not facts.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Claudine Gay and “The Elemental Force” that is Donald Trump

On Tuesday’s Commentary podcast, John Podhoretz remarked on the “elemental force” that is Donald Trump but did not spend time on the sources of that force.
