WTH is the House GOP Doing on National Security? Hugh Hewitt Explains what the House Freedom Caucus Means for Defense and Ukraine
What the Hell Is Going On
The race for Speaker of the House underscored the 2022 midterm narrative: the Republican Party is increasingly divided, and unable to consolidate power long enough to effect positive change. Now Speaker Kevin McCarthy was held hostage by a powerful “Knucklehead Caucus” (our guest’s moniker for the Never Kevinites) until its leader Matt Gaetz simply “ran out of things to ask for.” Some of these same dissenters have now been promoted to top committees in the House, the results of McCarthy’s Faustian pact to claim the speakership. Who are the Knuckleheads? Are they all knuckleheads? And how did this isolationist group of extremist budget hawks group climb atop the GOP pile? Among the reasons -- lack of strong leadership in the party, a lack of national security leadership in the White House, an end to substantive national debate in favor of social media hot takes, and more. And all of it is worrisome for the trajectory of the GOP, and America, going forward.Hugh Hewitt is a nationally syndicated radio talk show host with the Salem Radio Network.

First Look with Dan Balz, Hugh Hewitt and Ruth Marcus
Washington Post Live
On Washington Post Live’s “First Look,” associate editor Jonathan Capehart speaks with The Post’s Dan Balz, Hugh Hewitt and Ruth Marcus about the review of President Biden’s classified documents and the political fallout as well as Kevin McCarthy’s first week as speaker of the House.Conversation recorded on Friday, Jan. 13, 2022.
This week on The Media Roundtable, Dan sits down with nationally syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt. In the world of political talk, Hugh is an enigma. On one hand Hugh is a Pro-Trumper, President of the Richard Nixon Foundation, and unabashed conservative. Yet he’s applauded by leaders on the “other side” like Al Sharpton, Joy Reid, and Dr. Fauci. How does it all work? Whether it’s behind the mic or in person, Hugh treats everyone with dignity and he makes a call for all of us to do the same.
