If only Hugh had a producer! Even on such a slow news day, surely there must have been something to discuss.

Suppressing movies is something Obama did with the one that supposedly sparked the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2012. He made certain that film-maker got a maximum sentence for a minor offense, and also made sure his frog-march arrest was on the network news. So why should Obama criticize the North Koreans, when their methods are so similar?

And here I thought all communist workers paradise countries had unions. They may be comuninist controlled, but how is that different than, say, SEIU.

Gov. Kasich, how does one square your support of improved standards for education with the proposed college credit for hanging out with gran and gramps?

Meat Loaf sang it best: Hil wants peace She needs peace But there ain't no way Taliban's going to make peace Now don't be sad, cause two out of three ain't bad.

What I hear in Mr. Kasich's voice and presentation is fearlessness to speak his mind. Refreshing.

When I listened to the explanation that since the extremes from the right and the left don't like it, it must mean we have a wrap and it is good legislation. That is horrible, but standard, thinking. I can't help but scream. I recall a County Executive of about a million people who told me that is the measure that he has a good, new regulation. And then there was the City council person of 100k who would take a tally of each citizen speaker testifying at a contentious issue with the council. At the end before he voted, he would 'announce' his vote totals. Since he was a Democrat, the antis always won on any land use action. It drove me and the more lucid other councilmen crazy. Just because us "loons" who follow Ted Cruz are "extremes" doesn't mean that our side is outside the mainstream. Just saying the CR till September is a loser and one I will not forget. Other left wing liberal Republicans won this one, but that was only the opening volley for the fight for control of the R party. (Duane did not use the word "loons" but did talk about the extreme positions of the left and right).

Kerry, I tried to see what the renewal cost would be for hughniverse, but alas, seems they don't want me to renew. I think it is $59.95 and a whopping 10% increase over last year, but I am only guessing. Your suggested alternate site looks promising and then I would have access to the archive. Would miss the Duane show.

When has any program been defunded? They rob our military (I am at Ft. Knox) Husband brother and 2 sons served...Vietnam, Vietnam, stateside, Iraq 2 tours) and pay amnesty??? They are worse than worthless. First time I have ever thought we need a 3rd party. If our founders would have refused to fight out of fear of how long it would take we would be British.

I see you have done all you can to avoid the drama on the Hill. I guess having to actually speak about what the GOP were voting for concerning Ocare and amnesty has you speechless. I am a member of my local GOP Ex Comm but will have to resign. I will have to finally join the TP and work to see Brett Gurthrie removed in 2 yrs. The GOP are liars!

From the analogy Duane used for school lunches I thought he might go out with ZZ Top, but Buffet is always good.

Are you talking about Hugh or Iowahawk? They may be separate but equal people.

Okay, but what instruments did Hugh play for the early live performances? Esp at Carnegie Hall.

I didn't take it personally. Just explaining why I don't feel the need to spend time on those hours/shows, even though it isn't Hugh being boring again with a usual suspect like Tom Cotton.

Mark D. Roberts told Hugh (and the audience) that "Do You Hear What I Hear" was inspired by the Cuban Missle Crisis more than a decade ago for the Hugh Hewitt Show's Christmas Eve Special on Christmas music.

Sorry about that. Didn't mean to say you weren't patriotic or anything. The topic, though, seems to be okay and there certainly aren't many WWII people around anymore. First, they lived through the depression and then war. They certainly made an easy life for those of us who are 'boomers'.

I have no interest in the empty speculation about the CIA report which has yet to be released or read by anyone who can comment on it intelligently. But I'm reminded of a particular kind of hypocrisy that was brought out even before this report which will no doubt confirm it. There are supposed to be/feared to be protests around the world because of things like "redition," which involved taking prisoners to other countries where they could be interrogated in ways that were not allowed here, usually by people working for those governments. But that means those places, those governments, allowed - and probably still do! - those methods of interrogation which are supposed to be no-nos. Places like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, etc. So wtf are we going to care what people from those places say about us, when it's their own countries who were and probably still are actually the ones permitting and even doing those very things themselves?

Are you sure that the school you refer to is what WE would call a "public" school? I believe if you ask Mark Steyn among others, they will tell you that in Britain, what they call "public" schools are what WE call "private." And vice reversa. I have no idea why that would be so, but it appears to BE so. Overall for the purposes of the story, it doesn't much matter. But it is a distinction that shouldn't be missed, or mis-stated.

Why do people like Holder and Less-Than-Earnest only talk about how race relations are better than they were 50-60 years ago? People who say that race relations are worse since Obama took office, are saying they're worse over the past SIX years. Not 50 or 60.

That really only works if you can somehow get rid of the current Republican party. Otherwise what you end up doing, most likely, is splitting the current Republican vote which means the Democrats will tend to win. I already sufficiently admire veterans including WW II and current, and that's not going to increase by reading or hearing more about them. So I just skip Pearl Harbor shows, Semper Fi Fund shows, etc. They seem to be pre-recorded anyway, so if Hugh can't be bothered to do them live, why should I spend my time listening? It makes more sense to visit the USS Arizona memorial downtown, or something.

Kerry, I was wondering why no comments on the first three hours, and then I started listening to the first two hours. Quite respectful listening to one of the survivors of Pearl Harbor. I just can't understand how Landrieu didn't lose by thirty or forty points. It just baffles me how 'trained' the electorate is. And that includes the knuckleheads who listen to the 'con' men of the Republican party, too. I am all for a third party. You can have the Republican party, the Democrat party and then the party that wants to do what is right for America party.

They have good tire, though maybe not top of the line. Unfortunately for me, my manager of 10 years got booted along with all my other guys who recognized me and my cars. So, the guy they hired, believe it or not, talks and looks exactly like Gomer Pyle. He seems competent and friendly but he isn't my old guys.

I don't remember ever getting Schwab brand tires myself, although my younger brother did for his many hot-rod vans. And wheels too, because they had in-house credit which was pretty important for him back in the 70s and 80s. Mostly it was their service that we all went for primarily, it was always very good. I even took my 1947 GMC bus RV conversion there, because they also did heavy vehicle and fleet work. At least at some locations. Their lifetime warranty has come in handy on occasion too. A while back, my mother - who still lives in Oregon - took her car to Schwab to get new wheel struts. She's been retired for several years now, and was dreading the cost. They asked her if she'd gotten them replaced before, but she didn't remember. So they checked their records, found out it had been done there some time earlier - I don't remember how many years - and so they replaced all for for $0 including no labor cost. That's the kind of thing that gets people to go there for generations, even if their store-brand tires may not be the very best quality.
