THR 2/25/17: H.R. McMaster: A Legendary General

Opioids Tariffs

Hugh Hewitt interviews Richard Haass, who serves as president of the Council on Foreign Relations, about the importance of the National Security Adviser role. Hewitt asks Senator Tom Cotton why he is pleased with President Trump’s pick of General McMaster to be the next National Security Adviser. Michael Medved says that General McMaster is exactly who Trump and the nation need to fill the NSA role. Medved highlights the latest round of anti-Trump protests and explains why they are backfiring on the left. Medved reads excerpts from a column that is full of hysteria about how one has to parent a child during the Trump era. Mike Gallagher brings on National Review’s Rich Lowry to explain how Sweden is in deep trouble over their immigration problems. Hewitt chats with Archbishop Chaput about his new book, “Strangers in a Strange Land.” Dennis Prager looks at how California is more concerned with global warming rather than its crumbling infrastructure that needs to be fixed now.

Michael Medved: False Charges of Anti-Semitism

Marijuana

The bitter divisions in American life currently stem from politics as much as from differences in race, religion or economic status. Even tightly connected subgroups endure internal conflicts over President Trump and his policies.

Jewish Americans, for instance, represent less than 2 percent of the national population but that community includes some of Trump’s harshest critics, as well as members of his staff and family, and some of his strongest supporters. Any serious effort to unify the country must proceed one group at a time, and a good place to start would be rejection of absurd charges that the President himself is any sort of Jew hater.

As Israel’s visiting Prime Minister accurately observed, Mr. Trump has a long, unmistakable history of support for the Jewish people. Even if he fumbles questions on anti-Semitism at press conferences, his actions speak louder than any clumsy words, and deserve acknowledgment from all friends of Israel.

Albert Mohler: Haunted By The Laughter

Headlines

This past Saturday, Norma McCorvey passed away at the age of 69 in Texas. She was better known by her pseudonym, Jane Roe. McCorvey was the lead plaintiff in the infamous Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion in the United States.

The reality is that pro-abortion forces were shopping for a plaintiff and if it wasn’t Norma McCorvey, it would have been someone else. She was simply a cog in the abortion machine.

In the 1990s, McCorvey became a Christian and reversed her position on abortion. In very telling words, she would later say that her conscience was turned largely by her imagination. She was thinking of the laughter of all of those babies, including the infants who were never born.

Since the ruling in 1973, some 50 million unborn babies have been killed. Looking back over time, we can see that 1973 and the Roe v. Wade decision were simply the beginning of the battle for the sanctity and dignity of human life that continues even today.
