    An MSNBC reporter was called out by a bystander for attempts to shame people not wearing masks when half of his own camera crew were not wearing them. Cal Perry was delivering a Memorial Day report from Lake Geneva as hundreds traveled to enjoy the holiday weekend in Wisconsin, where businesses have reopened post lockdown. He was caught out while delivering a live report, when he attempted to use a passer-by as an example of people not wearing masks, only for the man to hit back with 'half your crew's not wearing masks!' Perry looked sheepish as he finished up...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have erected screens around the Beverly Hills area mansion where they are living, after it was discovered people could see directly onto the grounds. Workmen were pictured outside the $18million home, owned by movie producer Tyler Perry, on Saturday - the first day Los Angeles County allowed some hiking trails to reopen as authorities relaxed lockdown measures. After Parks & Recreation let Californians back onto popular hiking routes such as the Beverly Drive – Franklin Canyon Connector Trail on Saturday, locals taking dogs for walks and doing their daily exercise could see exactly where the...

    Rick Perry, the energy secretary who has drawn scrutiny for his role in the controversy surrounding President Trump’s efforts to push Ukraine officials to investigate the son of a political rival, on Thursday told the president he would resign from the cabinet. The Perry resignation had been anticipated for several weeks, even before the news emerged of his involvement in efforts to pressure the new president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, to investigate a company that had worked with Hunter Biden, the younger son of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

    Energy Secretary Rick Perry urged President Trump to speak to Ukraine's president about issues related to energy and the economy during a call that contributed to the launch of an impeachment inquiry, Perry's spokeswoman told The Hill on Sunday. "Secretary Perry absolutely supported and encouraged the president to speak to the new president of Ukraine to discuss matters related to their energy security and economic development," Shaylyn Hynes said in an email. During that call, Trump encouraged Ukraine's president to investigate 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, a partial transcript released by the White House...

    Energy Secretary Rick Perry is expected to resign in November. The announcement will be made next month and is unrelated to ongoing issues in the Trump administration with Ukraine, according to Politico. It is unclear the exact reasons or circumstances surrounding his decision to step down. Perry, unlike many others on President Trump’s cabinet, has been with the administration from the beginning, having been confirmed to the post in a 62-37 Senate vote in March 2017. Deputy Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette is anticipated to take over from the 69-year-old former Texas governor.

    Capt. James Lawrence "Don't Give Up the Ship!" & Captain Oliver Hazard Perry "We have met the enemy, and they are ours!" Among the many U.S. Navy and Marine heroes confronting Tripoli's Muslim Barbary pirates was Captain James Lawrence. In 1804, Captain Lawrence was second-in-command, under Lieutenant Stephen Decatur, of an expedition to destroy the captured 36-gun frigate USS Philadelphia held in Tripoli's harbor. It had run aground on an uncharted sandbar. Muslim pirates captured it and were preparing to use it for piracy. James Lawrence also commanded the USS Enterprise which fought battles with the Tripolitan Corsairs along the...

    On July 20, 1969, most Americans were consumed by the event of a lifetime: the Apollo 11 lunar landing. The Giants were no different. Giants groundskeeper Matty Schwab found space in his work area underneath the right-field grandstand at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park to plug in a black-and-white television set. Schwab’s hidden headquarters was close to the double doors adjacent to the Giants’ bullpen. So, thanks to Schwab, Giants relievers could sneak peeks at history during the early innings of San Francisco’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Right-hander Bob Bolin was among the Giants with divided attention. As he...

    CHICAGO – Two ranking executives inside the Cook County State’s Attorney's Office have submitted their resignations — including State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s chief ethics officer, April Perry, whom Foxx cited as the person who advised her to “recuse” herself from the Jussie Smollett case that has rocked the Chicago office, Fox News learned Thursday. Mark Rotert, the director of the office's Conviction Integrity Unit, has also submitted his resignation, according to a Foxx spokesperson. Perry and Rotert are scheduled to work their last days on the job in May. "While I feel lucky to have been able to spend the...

    When actor Luke Perry, best known for portraying TV heartthrob Dylan McKay on the ’90s teen drama “Beverly Hills, 90210,” died Monday after suffering a massive stroke, there were the usual public displays of sadness when a public figure leaves us. But his passing was especially painful for people of a certain age. As one fan expressed on Twitter: “I’m in mourning for Generation X today, for real.” Perry died at just 52 years old. Which makes him the first Gen X icon to succumb to natural causes. That’s an unsettling reality check to those of us who identify as...

    Appearing on MSNBC Live With Katy Tur Monday afternoon to discuss illegal immigration, reporter Cal Perry launched into a rant claiming that anyone criticizing migrant parents for bringing their children on the dangerous journey to the United States was spewing “xenophobic nonsense.” He even claimed that the U.S. was responsible for violence in Latin America. While talking about the death of a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl, Jakelin Caal, in Border Patrol custody, Perry understandably sympathized: “So it’s a terrible decision as a parent. Do you go into the desert, like Jakelin did, and risk your child’s life, right? Or do you...

    Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Thursday christened the first natural gas export terminal on the East Coast, at the Cove Point facility in Maryland outside of Washington. “We can become a reliable competitive alternative anywhere in the world, and we will,” Perry said in remarks opening the second natural gas export terminal in the country. Energy exports are key to Trump’s “energy dominance” agenda, and Perry said the president fully supports the new terminal. “This president understands the power of energy and he is eager to unleash our bounty to the world, which is why he is so supportive of...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered Overtime,” House Freedom Caucus member Scott Perry (R-PA) stated that no one could have read the omnibus bill before the House voted on it. Perry said, “[W]e get the bill, 2,232 pages last night at 8:30. … But you could have stayed up all night anyhow, into right now, and read the bill, and you still wouldn’t be done. So, it — look, it’s not good when the other side does it, and it’s not good when this side does it. We want to know what we’re voting on.”

    Washington Examiner ^ | Oct 17, 2017 | by Devin Hartman
    Let's be clear: The Energy Department's proposed rulemaking before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to subsidize power plants with on-site fuel is the antithesis of economic conservatism. The anti-competitive DOE proposal is a recipe to stick consumers with billions in added costs without addressing priority electric reliability and resiliency concerns. The proposal calls for draconian, emergency subsidies to address a crisis that grid reliability experts say doesn't exist. The alarmist proposal is neither technically nor procedurally sound. Knowledgeable, principled conservatives are speaking out. Travis Kavulla, the Republican vice chairman for the utility regulator of Montana, called the DOE's proposal a...

    The Trump administration is pushing for changes in the way electricity is priced to better reward coal and nuclear power, which face growing competition from natural gas and renewables. Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Friday called on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to act within 60 days to adopt rules raising payments to power plants that are considered more resilient. He maintained that a diverse mix of energy sources would strengthen the power grid, especially during natural disasters, by ensuring an adequate supply of backup power. The decline of traditional sources of power, on the other hand, would undermine reliability....

    Breitbart London Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM listeners that naivety over Shariah supremacism runs throughout the Western world, and that there is “very clear evidence” Islamist ghettos are appearing in the United States. Discussing his new book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You, on Tuesday, Kassam said he was struck by the “naivety through optimism that locals and officials had” in No Go Zone areas such as Rinkeby and Husby in Sweden, Molenbeek in Belgium, and Hamtramck in Detroit. “I met with nice people, well meaning people who...
