    ( -- When the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) went after a city council in Jay, Fla., for displaying a nativity set on public property, the atheist group might have won a battle, but seems to have lost the war. The FFRF, known for protesting any and all religious displays in public places, sent a complaint letter recently to local officials in the 526-person city of Jay, arguing against the life-sized nativity that had been set up on the site every Christmas for nearly 40 years, the group said in a press release. In a letter sent to the city’s...

    On Thursday, the day before a double resignation at the White House, ABC's Jon Karl grilled Jay Carney over Barack Obama's confidence in Eric Shinseki. Less than 24 hours later, the press secretary and Veterans Administration head had both quit. During the back-and-forth, Karl pressed, "But does the President right now have confidence in Sec. Shinseki, yes or no? It's a very simple yes or no question. You told us last week he did have confidence, does he have confidence now?" [See video below.] Carney dodged and responded, "Jon, the President addressed this question from the podium." The journalist pointed...

    Communication breakdown:Jay Carney has trouble in the press pool ---snip-- At a WH press conference, ABC’s Jon Karl posed questions about the Presidents statement that you could still enroll in Obamacare through the phone lines or by snail mail. As it turns out both of those options have to go through the website in order to complete enrollment. And when Jon Karl called Carney out on the fact that both he and the President said that you would only have to be on the phone for 25 mins to enroll a single person, Carney attempted to deflect by making fun...

    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.”

She didn’t do anything. She’s just good-looking.” The payoff: “Hey, I’ll bet that’s what happened to me here at NBC!” It’s the sort of joke that is rapidly becoming a staple of Leno’s monologue. (On Monday’s show, riffing on the royal baby, he confided that he was “a little bummed out,...

CARNEY: The president’s position has always been that we should permanently extend the tax cuts for middle-class Americans and that we should no longer extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.

According to the Times, Carney told Michael Clemente, Fox News’ senior vice president for news, that the video had crossed the line even for “Fox & Friends,” the morning show where it aired. Two unnamed Democrats reportedly told the newspaper about the call, described as a “private conversation.” As The Blaze previously reported, the four-minute clip featured a series of...

    I’m sure in his feeble mind this makes sense. (NewsOK) — White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that the number of people dropping out of the work force, which artificially depresses the unemployment rate, can be regarded as an “economic positive.” “A lot of that is due to younger people getting more of an education, which is an economic positive,” Carney said. He had been asked what would happen when people “inevitably” raise the unemployment rating with their return to the work force.

    Short term unemployment benefits provide people financial resources while the look for a new job. Extending unemployment benefits to 18 months or longer only encourages people to take their time looking for that new job. They do not create jobs. This is the liberal concept that spending money can be equated with job creation. If that theory worked, the Stimulus would have kept unemployment under 8% as promised. We all know how that worked out. (RCP) — “I understand why extending unemployment insurance provides relief to people who need it, but how does that create jobs,” Wall Street Journal’s Laura...

    "The Jay Treaty Strongly Indicates That Obama Is Not Eligible To Be President. Those who support Obama’s eligibility – despite his admission of dual allegiance/nationality (at the time of his birth) – routinely offer a rather absurd hypothetical which sounds something like this: “The US is sovereign and not governed by foreign law so British law shouldn’t be considered as to Presidential eligibility. What if North Korea declared that all US citizens are also citizens of North Korea? In that case, nobody would be eligible to be President if dual nationality was a determining factor. Therefore, nationality laws of the...

It was a fateful encounter that formed an initial partnership and friendship. But now, in retrospect, it's a tragic relationship in which the repercussions from the fallout between the two are still being felt 35 years later, changing late night television forever. And, unknowingly, altering the fate of a then-12 year-old boy living in Brookline, Massachusetts -- Conan O'Brien. Letterman, on a January 19 episode of Late Show, referred to Jay Leno...

    It isn’t easy to put U.S. defenses back on track after they’ve endured a season of neglect. Gen. William Snow found that out firsthand. Snow’s job, when he arrived in Washington in the World War I era, was to direct the buildup of artillery for the Allied Expeditionary Force. He thought his office should have stationery reflecting the importance of the task. His request was rejected. Rather than fund this extravagance, it was suggested the general purchase a rubber stamp to mark his correspondence. Snow had joined a War Department completely unprepared to fight a war. The Army hadn’t been...

    A judge ruled that US talk show host Jay Leno can tell jokes about Michael Jackson, even though he could be called to testify in the embattled star's child sex trial. The move came after Jackson's lawyers argued that the famed comedian, who has been subpoenaed as a possible witness, should be subject to a strict gag order preventing players in the case from talking about it. The legal wrangling last week forced Leno to draft in a substitute to crack jokes about the "King of Pop" on his "Tonight Show" on US television. Leno's lawyers asked Judge Rodney Melville,...
