    Bruce Hyde is a footnote in sci-fi pop-culture history, a man who appeared in two of the original Star Trek episodes: “The Naked Time,” which originally aired on Sept. 29, 1966; and “The Conscience of the King,” first broadcast on Dec. 8, 1966. As Lt. Kevin Riley, a navigator aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise, he was memorable in both — “The Naked Time,” especially, the episode in which he sang “I’ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen” while declaring himself captain and cutting off the engines while under the influence of … well, sure, maybe you should just watch the whole thing.
  • 1,147,000 Americans are Alive Today Because the Hyde Amendment Saved Them From Abortion

    On Wednesday, abortion advocates introduced a bill to pay for elective abortions with federal taxpayer funds. The bill “targets the Hyde Amendment, a 1976 provision that blocks federal money from going to pay for abortions, with exceptions for cases of rape or incest or when a pregnant woman’s life is in danger. Hyde Amendment language is frequently included on spending legislation and is attached to the annual bill paying for Medicaid.” According to a 2010 statement from the pro-abortion Center for Reproductive Rights, the Hyde Amendment has prevented over a million abortions. Five years have passed since that statement, making...

    President Obama has vowed to veto the Protect Life Act WASHINGTON, D.C., October 12, 2011 ( – President Barack Obama has promised to veto a bill strongly backed by pro-life leaders as a last-ditch effort to dodge the potentially massive expansion of abortion under the new federal healthcare reform law. Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced last week that the Protect Life Act, H.R. 358, will be considered in the House of Representatives on Thursday. The measure would amend President Obama’s Affordable Care Act to reflect the Hyde amendment by prohibiting taxpayer dollars from funding any health plan that includes coverage...

    Cardinal Rigali to Congress: Keep Existing Pro-Life Laws WASHINGTON—Writing as chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities, Cardinal Justin Rigali sent a letter on February 5 to all members of Congress, urging them to maintain pro-life provisions in the appropriations bills they must soon approve to keep government programs funded past March 5. "I urge you not to use this legislation to weaken or rescind longstanding provisions that protect U.S. taxpayers from being forced to fund and promote the destruction of innocent human life," Cardinal Rigali said. "In making this plea," he said, "I am...

    As a solo pro-lifer over the years — among my wife, my friends and journalists I work with — I have been strengthened by knowing and learning from the late Henry Hyde on how to report on the degree to which this country can and is combating the culture of death — from abortion to assisted suicide and the "futility doctrine" in a growing number of hospitals that certain lives are not worth living any more. From 1975 to 2007, former U.S. Rep. Hyde, a force for life, was not only instrumental in limiting the number of abortions, he also...

    Former Rep. Henry Hyde, who died Wednesday at 83, was indeed an extraordinary man, a political giant who earned the respect of his colleagues across the political spectrum. Mr. Hyde, a Republican congressman from suburban Chicago, was many things during his 32 years in Congress: a political statesman and leader; chairman of the Judiciary and International Relations Committees; a skilled parliamentarian and debater; and a tireless fighter for conservative causes — including protection for the innocent unborn and political freedom for the people of Central America. In 1976 the freshman lawmaker won passage of the "Hyde Amendment" to appropriations bills,...

Whenever a prominent conservative dies--Ronald Reagan, Jerry Falwell--you can be sure the DUmmies will celebrate with glee. Rather than letting the recently departed rest in peace--speak no ill of the dead--the DUmmies let loose with a barrage of ill. And Henry Hyde is a juicy target for them.

    Washington, DC ( -- Former member of Congress Henry Hyde will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom next Monday for his work opposing abortion. For decades, after his landmark Hyde Amendment stopped federal funding of virtually all abortions, Hyde became the pro-life movement's elder statesman on Capitol Hill. Hyde was first elected to the House in 1974 and served as chairman of the House International Relations Committee and the House Judiciary Committee from 1995 to 2001. In those positions, Hyde advanced pro-life legislation and worked to stop using taxpayer dollars to subsidize abortions in other countries. Hyde's lasting legacy will...

    Few people who enter public life can ever hope to leave it casting as big of a shadow as Henry J. Hyde. The sixteen-term Congressman from Illinois sixth district is retiring this year, and he leaves behind a legacy as a passionate defender of conservative principles and also as one of the most fair-minded and equanimous members of Congress. Republican Peter Roskam is running to replace Mr. Hyde, and having worked for him back in the 1970's and then watched him in action over the years, he fully understands the size of the shoes he is seeking to fill.

Hyde (R-IL), Chairman of the House Committee on International Relations, released the following statement after Democratic lawmakers and former Carter and Clinton administration officials criticized President Bush’s policies in the Middle East: It strains the limit of humor to hear the foreign policy elite of the Democratic Party attempt to blame George W. Bush for enabling Iran to become a global menace. For it was a Democratic President, Jimmy Carter, who presided over the seizure of power in Tehran by Ayatollah...

    ADDISON, Ill. - You could hardly design a more intriguing contrast: man versus woman; a veteran legislator versus a political neophyte; anti-abortion candidate versus abortion rights proponent. If you live in Chicago’s western suburbs in the Sixth Congressional District you’ll get a chance to choose the winner of this face off. Your choice could decide whether Democrats gain control of the House. This is a district where President Bush won 53 percent of the vote in 2004. Now it’s up to veteran state legislator Peter Roskam to keep it a Republican seat in House. Since 1974, Republican Henry Hyde, best...

    Christine Cegelis will not endorse Tammy Duckworth, the winner in Illinois’s 6th Congressional District Democratic primary, because she has reservations about Duckworth’s positions on universal healthcare and free trade, a source close to Cegelis’s campaign said. Duckworth, a wounded veteran of the Iraq war, defeated Cegelis by 3 percentage points in last week’s hotly contested primary. Cegelis, a liberal Democrat, won 44 percent of the vote against Rep. Henry Hyde (R-Ill.) in 2004. On Saturday, Illinois Democrats held a unity breakfast attended by Duckworth, party officials and Cegelis supporters who vowed to help Duckworth. Cegelis did not attend. Duckworth had...

    WASHINGTON -- A House Republican influential on foreign affairs matters questioned the wisdom and potential effectiveness Thursday of American efforts to spread democracy, a cornerstone of Bush administration policy. With Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice poised to testify to his panel, Chairman Henry Hyde of the House International Relations Committee questioned what he called the "Golden Theory" _ that the United States can produce peace and stability around the world by financing and encouraging democracy. "The magic formula of democracy alone" will not work, said Hyde, R-Ill. It must be paired with "unbounded power" and "an open-ended commitment of time...

WASHINGTON -Venezuela snubbed a visiting congressional delegation at the Caracas airport. Just what transpired at the airport -- and why -- remains unclear. President Hugo Chávez's campaign to woo members of the U.S. Congress suffered a major setback this week as Venezuelan authorities, amid contradictory reports, snubbed members of a senior delegation of U.S. lawmakers by not letting them disembark from their aircraft for several hours. The lawmakers eventually left without ever getting off the plane. Chávez and...

Well, how does the barring a BIPARTISAN US Congressional Delegation, from entering Venezuela, bodes with the aforementioned predicament?

    CARACAS -- A congressional delegation led by Rep. Henry Hyde arrived on Monday in Venezuela, but was not permitted to leave the plane at the country's main airport and left abruptly, a spokesman for the U.S. embassy said. The president of the airport, however, denied the accusation, saying the U.S. ambassador met the plane at the airport, entered it briefly, and then the craft departed. The delegation on the plane had been slated to meet with Venezuelan Vice President Jose Vicente Rangel and other government officials, and waited for roughly one hour before departing, Brian Penn, the embassy spokesman, told...
