Hugh Hewitt: Expect Fireworks—but Also Expect a Confirmation

Voters who do not want to be ruled by unelected judges want President Trump to nominate and the Republican Senate to confirm the next Supreme Court justice.

If Democrats deploy outrageous delaying tactics such as conducting a sham impeachment—as Speaker Nancy Pelosi has hinted at, the Republican Senate majority should simply dispense with hearings and hold a vote.

The history on this is clear: Presidents have a long record of filling such slots when their party controls the Senate. The fact that Democrats are upset that Trump gets to make another appointment to the court doesn’t change history or amend the Constitution.

All the nominees we’ve seen put forward are highly qualified.

The GOP should not be intimidated by the Manhattan-Beltway media elites into failing to meet this challenge. Senate Majority Leader McConnell and Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham are ready.

Yes: Expect fireworks—but also expect a confirmation.

Hugh Hewitt: Elite Media Ignores UAE Peace Treaty

The normalization of economic relations between Kosovo and Serbia marked yet another significant foreign policy success for the Trump administration. In the aftermath—when Trump presided over a very important set of handshakes commemorating the deal—the elite media all but ignored the story.

To have Kosovo and Serbia put aside generations of enmity and normalize economic relations is a big deal of and in itself. But both countries also agreed to take steps to support the momentum for peace in the Middle East generated by the peace treaty between the United Arab Emirates and Israel. More dominoes were falling toward peace. Another may follow soon.

So when Ambassador Richard Grenell, the special envoy for Serbia and Kosovo peace negotiations, teed off on a seemingly disinterested media, his frustration was understandable.

The electorate is weary of the non-stop anti-Trump alarmism.

The American voter needs to pay attention to Trump’s real successes, not the media’s distraction.
