Hewitt: The Disdain of the Elites


If President Trump makes a comeback—and pulls off yet another upset victory on November the 3rd—it will be because he relied on the disgust of the American people with elites.

Trump will again run on a platform of America first, and on rebuilding the economy he built once before until it was shuttered by the novel coronavirus. He’ll point to his clear-eyed view of today’s aggressive and assertive Chinese Communist Party and to the strengthening of our military build-up: a growing Navy, the Space Force and the revitalized nuclear deterrent.

Trump will also run on his massive deregulation, and the appointment of justices and judges who are faithful to the Constitution.

An often hysterical media endlessly chants the same anti-Trump refrains.

But voters have to ask themselves: Which man do they want squaring off against Xi Jinping, rebuilding the economy, appointing judges, and funding the military?

Trump can embrace this disdain of elites that is widespread. And—yes—he can win again.

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.
