Hugh Hewitt: Not Your Typical Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend typically serves as a kick-off for the summer months ahead.

Yes: This year it still holds that spot on our calendar, but—no matter where you are in this great country—this holiday weekend will not be normal.

Whether you’re somewhat back to normal, socializing and socially-distanced or isolating at home, take some time to consider the ultimate sacrifice made by so many on behalf of the nation we love.

Consider as well the many who have paid a very high price, short of dying.

If you can, please consider starting with those who serve the wounded and serve the surviving family members. Start with the Semper Fi Fund and the Fisher House Foundation.

Look them up.

Support them.

Support—especially—the families in your world who’ve paid a heavy price for their service to the nation.

We are debtors to those who serve, those who fight, those who die.

A grateful nation says, “Thank you.”

Hugh Hewitt: The Lessons of Impeachment

With “The impeachment pageant” largely behind us, get ready for the flood of “What did we learn?” essays.

But there are no “lessons” here other than the abuse of power by members of a partisan majority in the House to raise profiles and profits for themselves. This chapter leaves a constitutional scar. This behavior is not what impeachment was intended for. President Trump’s phone call did not include any offense, much less any impeachable one.

We won’t know for 50 years what impeachment does to Trump’s place in history.

My guess? Not much, given his outsize personality and growing list of achievements, including:

• rebuilding of the U.S. military
• appointments of—so far—two Supreme Court justices and a growing list of appeals court and district court judges
• a massive tax cut
• a very strong economy
• 3.5 percent unemployment

And I could go on.

All that remains are ashes of the left’s hopes and a scar on the Constitution.

Lanhee Chen: China Sends Concerning Signal on Hong Kong

China recently claimed that it was the United States that instigated the waves of pro-democracy protests that have washed over Hong Kong in recent weeks. It’s a ridiculous claim, but unfortunately suggests the possibility that Beijing is foreshadowing a military intervention in Hong Kong to maintain control.

The commander of China’s military outfit in Hong Kong recently said, in fact, that it was “determined to protect national sovereignty, security, stability, and the prosperity of Hong Kong.”

It wouldn’t be the first time that China has used force in this way. Many of you remember the brutal repression in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Tibet was invaded in 1950. And, more recently, we’ve seen the crackdown on Uighur Muslims in western China.

Hong Kong has been an important center of both commerce and freedom, just a few miles from the Chinese mainland. Whether that will continue is a serious question that we all should be concerned with.
