The new home of the Steve Hilton Show.
The Problem with California’s Jungle Primary
Welcome to the Steve Hilton Show. First, we have to address the national news story of the week: the Special Counsel report on Biden and his classified documents. The Democrats are desperately trying to escape the negative, but truthful comments questioning Biden’s capacity to be president. Then, we take a brief look at his foreign policy decisions. Despite Biden being sold this great “foreign policy genius”, his foreign policy has been the most disastrous part of his presidency and that's the consequence of having someone at the top who's not really in charge. In other news, California Senate candidate Barbara Lee wants to raise the minimum wage to $50 rather than address the Democrat policies that drastically raised the cost of living.
Then, joining us in this episode for California Corner is none other than Jennifer Horn. Jen and I deep dive into Sacramento’s homeless problem and how it was miraculously cleaned up for Leonardo DiCapro’s latest film project. We also analyze the topics discussed at the California Senate debate and discuss how California’s jungle primary has created a one-party system. Chris Coulombe also joins us today for Candidate Corner. Chris is running for election to the U.S. House to represent California's 2nd Congressional District. He gives us a brief rundown of his background and his district’s current political situation. Lastly, I touch on the media malfeasance with a recent story regarding Trump and his words about NATO.
Congressional Dysfunction and the Border Crisis
In this week’s episode, I first take a deep dive into the border bill and immigration crisis. Regardless if you're an independent, Democratic, Republican, we should all be able to agree that Congress and the rest of our federal government is in absolute shambles. Then, joining us today for California Corner, is my longtime friend and editor of California Globe, Katy Grimes. Katy and I discuss the ballot initiative to overturn Prop 47 which is, of course, at the heart of so much of the crime and chaos we're seeing in our cities. Joining us for Candidate Corner this week is Laurie Davies who is in the California State Assembly for the 74th District. She brings a unique perspective of the problems of affordable housing, safety, and crime from the state level. We end with a discussion on the recent Senate hearing last week that essentially reprimanded big tech CEOs of the United States for their handling of children’s online safety and exposure to sexual content.
Consequences of Biden’s Foreign Policy
In this week’s episode, I discuss the consequences of President Biden and his administration’s foreign policy. During President Trump, America had a great foreign policy reputation that Biden has completely pummeled through. Next, I meet with Susan Shelley to lay out all the details of Proposition 1, a deceptive and dangerous ballot measure that Gavin Newsom and the Democrats are pushing. Proposition 1 will be destructive to the state of California, and a robbery of existing funding to existing programs for mental health issues. Lastly, I am joined by Eric Early who is a candidate for US Senate.
Why Is Nikki Haley Still In the Race?
In this episode, we discuss why Nikki Haley is still in the race and how the Independents and Republicans truly feel about Nikki Haley. Haley clearly has no chance of winning, and I discuss how this affects the future of the presidential race and what could happen if Trump does get convicted in his current cases. Next, I discuss how housing costs are the #1 reason why Californians are leaving the state, which has a trickle-down effect on other state issues. California’s environmental laws are a massive part of the housing crisis in California, I discuss how my initiative is helping combat these issues and take on the CEQA laws. If you want to help fix California’s housing crisis, help us get this on the ballot at CalHomesNow.com and click “Help Us Get This On the Ballot” and we will mail you a ballot if it qualifies!
I am also joined by Jennifer Horn to discuss California Corner and our first point of discussion is the debate for the Federal Office to replace Feinstein and our thoughts and who we are excited to see in the state race. We also get into California’s crazy proposed laws and headlines, including a proposed law that says cars made or sold in California would not be able to go 10mph over the speed limit. Californians are very obviously fed up with the crime rates in the state, and all eyes will be on the Los Angeles District Attorney race.
Lastly, I am joined by Alex Villanueva who is running for LA County Supervisor. Alex has a people-first initiative and understands the needs of the people in Los Angeles, such as affordable housing, accessible mental healthcare, hard-on-crime policies, and successful substance abuse treatment.
This is a packed episode you won’t want to miss!
Why The Media Will Never Understand Trump’s Rising Poll Numbers
There is a lot going on in politics everywhere. On today’s show, we begin by discussing Trump’s huge victory in Iowa at the beginning of this week. Then, Susan Shelley joins us to talk about the myriad of problems California is currently facing, from unbelievable horrors lurking within Gavin Newsom's latest budget crisis to the $9 billion dollar failure of the Los Angeles Metro. Lastly, we share our views on Davos. Also in this episode, we are introducing a new segment: Candidate Corner. Every week, we're going to bring you one of the candidates that's running for office right here in California, so that you can hear directly from them. Before we get to the individual candidates, Jessica Millan Patterson, chairwoman of the California Republican Party, joins us to give an overview of this election season and share her incredibly encyclopedic knowledge of absolutely every race in California.
Will Democrats Keep Trump Off The Ballot?
This is the first episode of 2024 and I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! We have a lot to discuss as 2024 is going to be a massive year in terms of politics. First, I wanted to discuss my thoughts on states getting Trump off the 2024 Presidential ballot and how hypocritical Democrats are being. Democrats have always disregarded the Constitution as a “living document” and we should not take anything literally, but now it’s all they are doing to get Trump off the ballot. I also discuss the events surrounding Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and healthcare policies in California. Jennifer Horn is back to discuss the upcoming California Senate race and how Gavin Newsom will have to answer some hard questions regarding the state’s $68 billion budget deficit, and what this deficit means for the future of Californians. We end the show by discussing Ron DeSantis and his future in the presidential election, along with Trump and Nikki Haley.
Lincoln Club Rancho Mirage
Steve was terrific. But…while criticizing the role role unions play in blocking needed housing in California, he praised the union support for populist movement that reverses outmigration of business to China and elsewhere. Businesses left America because unions drove up costs!

As a native of California (specifically San Francisco), I find this podcast to be my favorite of many I listen to. I love how Steve and his fantastic guests discuss issues affecting California residents and discuss solutions to get this State on a successful trajectory (if we can ever get great leadership). Great podcast which you will enjoy.
