  • Ed Henry GRILLS Earnest: WH, DOJ Has Pursued Reporters For Leaks, Why Not Find ‘Chicken' Source?

    After a report in The Atlantic reported a White House official referred to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu as “chickenshit,” Fox News’ Ed Henry pushed White House spokesman Josh Earnest over a seemingly double standard regarding leaks. Henry questioned Earnest, asking why the White House and the Justice Department have gone after reporters such as James Risen and James Rosen for leaks, yet aren’t pursuing who leaked the derogatory quote to The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, which could do harm to U.S./Israeli relations. Ed Henry: On that question, Ron raised a good point about the leaks in a grand jury. The administration...

    In light of leaked emails regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry went head-to-head during Thursday’s press briefing. At one point, the press secretary took a jab at the reporter and his employer. After Henry questioned Carney over why the Ben Rhodes-authored emails focused on an anti-Islamic video rather than the terrorism aspect of the deadly siege, the press secretary remarked that the CIA-produced talking points at the time referred to protests at the Benghazi consulate as being inspired by similar demonstrations outside the American embassy in Cairo....

    Why should we worry about tyrants abroad who would like to strip us of our freedoms? Their ultimate goal is not to hijack our planes so they can fly them into buildings or set off bombs in densely populated areas. Would they be attempting to blow us up if we simply declared "we surrender, do with us as you wish"? No, if we did surrender to the jihadists, the end result would only be an expedited version of what this President is already orchestrating right before our eyes on a daily basis - with no opposition.

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney scolded reporter Ed Henry for asking why President Barack Obama is unwilling to sit down and talk with House Republicans — even if he thinks they are wrong. Henry noted that the president has welcomed diplomatic talks with the Iranian regime but not the GOP. “The president called the new president of Iran and sort of opened up diplomatic negotiations. So why not do the same with the House Republicans? You’re at loggerheads, call them,” Henry said. Carney then sarcastically thanked Henry for the “reassertion of GOP talking points.”

    White House press secretary Jay Carney clashed with both Fox News Chief White House correspondent Ed Henry and CBS News correspondent Major Garrett during Monday’s afternoon briefing. Both intense exchanges surrounded the federal government’s data collection of phone and internet records and the administration’s handling of the issue. Carney’s back-and-forth with Henry was the most notable. The journalist asked a number of pointed questions, especially about Obama’s claim on Friday that “every member of Congress” had been briefed on the NSA’s program involving monitoring of phone calls and Internet service. “Why then are not just Republicans but Democrats like Keith...

    Gun and Rifle manufacturers, I want your attention. I've been looking for a rifle/shotgun to take on a long hike, and there's not many choices. Take a look at Henry's U.S. Survival AR-7. It's a good product for backpacking, but too small on caliber. The fact that when it's packed inside its waterproof stock, it can float if dropped into water, and can be retrieved and will still work, is a great deciding factor. But being a .22LR is a detractor. Now take a look at the Rossi Circuit Judge and their many different variations. I like the 3-inch Magnum...

    American Jewish groups, lobbying the Nixon administration on behalf of their Soviet brethren, got under White House adviser Henry Kissinger's skin so much that he denounced them as self-serving 'bastards', newly released documents reveal. The comments were made in August 1972, when appeals were flooding the White House over the Kremlin's levying of fees for exit permits. One such letter was from the Israeli prime minister, Golda Meir, appealing to the White House to end its strategy of 'quiet diplomacy', and for Mr Nixon to take up the issue with Soviet leaders directly.

    As the calls for clemency for Jonathan Pollard continue to intensify, Henry A. Kissinger, an elder statesman, well-respected diplomat, and experienced member of the United States intelligence community, has become the latest American governmental leader to issue a public call for Pollard’s release. Pollard has spent more than 25 years languishing in a federal prison for passing classified information to Israel, an ally of the United States. Kissinger, who served as United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, sent a letter to President Obama requesting that he commute Pollard’s sentence to...

    Accounting basics: when a company experiences what accountants call "a material adverse impact" on its expected future earnings, and those changes affect an item that is already on the balance sheet, the company is required to record the negative impact--"to take the charge against earnings"--as soon as it knows that the change is reasonably likely to occur. This makes good accounting sense. The asset on the balance sheet is now less valuable, so you should record a charge. Otherwise, you'd be misleading investors. The Democrats, however, seem to believe that Generally Accepted Accounting Principles are some sort of conspiracy against...

What's the irony you ask? Well, I'm glad you asked. You see, on this date in 1775 Patrick Henry delivered what is one of the most often quoted lines ever delivered: "Give me Liberty, or give me Death." Patrick Henry's speech served to urge the American People to shed the chains of Britain. The irony continues if...

After Henry Luce handed over the reins of his publishing empire to others, in 1964, he and his wife, Clare Boothe Luce, one of the most remarkable women of the 20th century, sold their home in Connecticut and moved to Arizona. They probably should have remained in Connecticut, because Arizona seemed to have a...

Ernest Istook, 54% to 33%. That’s a 10-point jump in Henry’s lead since our last poll in May. Henry is faring much better with his party base as evidenced by the 83% of Democrats who say they’ll support him versus 58% of Republicans for Istook. He also has stronger crossover pull, drawing support from 27% of GOP voters. Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Oklahoma voters have a “very favorable” opinion...

But then, he’s the chairman of the Henry County Libertarian party, a party not known for its conformists. And even he sometimes doesn’t tow the party line. Pye, 25, was elected to the party’s chairmanship in January of 2005 after about a year of party interest and involvement.

David Barrett, you'll recall, is the independent counsel appointed in 1995 to investigate allegations of impropriety against President Clinton's Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros. Mr. Barrett found his path mined by the Justice Department, the Internal Revenue Service and President Clinton's attorneys, even after Mr. Clinton departed the White House. He prepared 18 felony indictments against Mr. Cisneros but had to settle for a guilty plea on a misdemeanor charge (lying to the...

    December 22, 2005, 8:57 a.m. Can You Hear the Bells? Christmas 1864. In the winter of 1864, an unexpected sense of optimism and good cheer settled on the northern states. The Civil War continued, but the news from the fronts was promising, and hope flourished that with spring the end would come and peace would return. New Yorkers in particular were in a festive frame of mind, of a like unseen since the before the war began. People skated in Central Park, and rode sleighs through the snowy fields. They stopped at shops for warm cider, confections, nuts and dried...

    HILLARY'S SECRET WAR The Clintons’ enemy list Posted: July 19, 20051:00 a.m. Eastern Editor's note: The following is an eye-opening look into New York Times best-selling author Richard Poe's revealing book, "Hillary's Secret War." Whereas Edward Klein's book on the New York senator reveals previously unknown aspects of her personal life, Poe's expose focuses on how Hillary Clinton and the left's "shadow government" have labored to put her and her far-left agenda in the White House by controlling the still-uncensored flow of real news to Americans – via the Internet.If that sounds too fantastic to be true, read on....

    At one end of the street stands the United Nations; at the other end, stands the United States Congress. At issue: whether the U.N.’s diplomatic immunity trumps the subpoena power of the U.S. Congress. Paul Volcker - Kofi Annan’s hand-picked investigator of the oil-for-food scandal - represents the U.N. Henry Hyde - Chairman of the House International Relations Committee - represents the U.S. Volcker has persistently blocked Congressional efforts to secure information about the multi-billion-dollar oil-for-food scandal. Hyde issued a subpoena, which produced several boxes of documents that Volcker says are protected by diplomatic immunity. Volcker wants the documents returned....
  • Hyde on Clinton's Impeachment

    Henry Hyde (R-IL), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee during the Clinton impeachment hearings, was interviewed by ABC News political reporter Andy Shaw. The ABC headline is entitled, "Clinton Impeachment was Retaliation for Nixon, Says Retiring Congressman." This is completely bogus. When listening to the clip, I noticed a couple things. First, Andy Shaw said that the impeachment of Clinton embarrassed Henry Hyde because it brought attention to his "hypocrisy" many years earlier when he participated in an extramarital affair. (Unsurprisingly, Shaw did not mention anything about obstruction of justice.) Second, Shaw commented on Hyde's retirement, saying that some people...

    Even if the Alberta Human Rights Commission was not busy investigating Bishop Fred Henry, it should still be abolished as a waste of taxpayers' money. Bishop Henry made the news last week by refusing to apologize for promoting the Roman Catholic teaching that sex is legitimate only between husband and wife. In keeping with what his church has been saying for about 2,000 years, the bishop lumped homosexuality in with adultery, prostitution, and pornography as forces which undermine the family. Two Calgarians complained their "rights" have been "violated" by the bishop's teaching and our tax dollars are paying for an...

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Former U.S. Rep. J.C. Watts hasn't ruled out running for governor next year but he said he wasn't ready to make a decision. ''I have been encouraged to do it, and I pay attention to the people who are encouraging me to do it because they've been great friends of mine,'' Watts told The Oklahoman's Washington bureau during a telephone interview on Friday. Watts, a Republican, served as 4th Congressional District representative from 1995 to 2003 in the U.S. House. He now runs the J.C. Watts Cos., which do government affairs and business consulting work in...

    Science & Society 10/20/03Digging out the truth of Exodus By Helen Fields Egyptologist Manfred Bietak was reading a 60-year-old report of a dig near Luxor in Egypt when a surprising find caught his eye. Near a mortuary temple from the 12th century B.C., archaeologists had uncovered a grid of shallow trenches, which they guessed was the base of a workers' hut. Bietak, head of the Institute of Egyptology at Vienna University, recognized the floor plan as that of the four-room houses used by almost all Israelites from the 12th to the sixth century B.C. What was it doing in Egypt?...
