Greg Gutfeld and Brian Kilmeade: Why people think we hate each other

Fox News hosts Greg Gutfeld and Brian Kilmeade had a great time on Gutfeld’s Fox Nation show joking about how some people think they don’t get along.

“When I go on my sold-out tours,” said Gutfeld, bragging about his live performances, “people assume that you and I absolutely have a problem with each other.”

“I play into it,” laughed Kilmeade. “You do it too, right?”

“It’s great,” agreed Gutfeld on his Fox Nation show “One Smart Person and Greg Gutfeld.” “Especially, when you are on ‘The Five’ and I start insulting you and people are like, ‘What did Brian do to him?’ And if anybody asks, I go, ‘It’s too long to get into on Twitter.”

Kilmeade joked that Gutfeld’s putdowns have been more stinging when they’re delivered in his absence.

“It’s worse when I’m not there,” Kilmeade deadpanned, “because I find out like two days later… I go, ‘Woah, woah, woah, you mentioned me on Sunday? What was it in context with?'”

Kilmeade said he got the same reaction from some fans at his live shows.

“My third question’s always like, ‘So what’s going on between you and Gutfeld?’ and I go, ‘We don’t get along. He’s jealous’… I never say that there’s no problem.”

Kilmeade was appearing on Gutfeld’s Fox Nation show to discuss his new book, “Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers: The Texas Victory That Changed American History,” and they did eventually find the time to discuss it — briefly.

“You are upsetting so many historians,” Gutfeld observed, “because historians don’t have morning talk shows, they’re not going into your turf.”

“There’s no Meacham in the morning?” joked Kilmeade, an apparent reference to presidential historian Jon Meacham.

Turning serious for a moment, Gutfeld asked, “So, who is Sam Houston?”

Kilmeade said he became interested in Sam Houston while he was doing research for one of his previous books on President Andrew Jackson. Houston, who died in 1863, was a lawyer, politician, and leader in the Texas Revolution.

Jackson “mentored Sam Houston and they were buddies,” Kilmeade said

“On Andrew Jackson’s porch… It would be James K. Polk, President Buchanan, Martin Van Buren, Sam Houston and Andrew Jackson. And, they used to try to solve the world’s problems, and they used to talk about Manifest Destiny and did it, they used to talk about Texas and took it. They used to talk about taking Florida and he had it in 1819, so to me, it was an impactful group of guys.”

“Wow,” reacted Gutfeld. “That’s like the male version of the Golden Girls.”

Jimmy Carter released from hospital after treatment for urinary tract infection, spokeswoman says

Former President Jimmy Carter was released from a Georgia hospital Wednesday after being treated for a urinary tract infection.

Carter, 95, was discharged from the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Carter Center spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said in a statement.

“He said he looks forward to further rest and recovery at home in Plains, Georgia,” she added.

JIMMY CARTER SAYS HE HOPES ‘THERE’S AN AGE LIMIT’ FOR PRESIDENCY IN APPARENT JAB AT BIDEN, SANDERS

Carter has had several health issues in recent years.

He was released from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta last month after recovering from surgery to relieve pressure on his brain caused by bleeding from a fall.

On Oct. 6, he had hit his head and required 14 stitches. He still traveled to Nashville that month to help build a Habitat for Humanity home shortly after the incident. He also fractured his pelvis in another fall later that month that required a brief hospital stay.

Carter was diagnosed in 2015 with melanoma, saying it had spread to other parts of his body. He said he was cancer-free after procedures to remove parts of his liver, treatment for brain lesions, and radiation and immunotherapy.

Jonathan Turley tells lawmakers if they impeach Trump, ‘It’s your abuse of power’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6112966115001_6112973416001-vs Jonathan Turley tells lawmakers if they impeach Trump, ‘It’s your abuse of power’ fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc Brian Flood article 5c20b80b-c1f1-5743-9cfd-cfd083cc15ba

Constitutional scholar and George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told lawmakers on Wednesday during the Trump impeachment inquiry hearing that it would be an abuse of their power to impeach President Trump.

Appearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Turley accused lawmakers of doing “precisely” what they’re condemning Trump for doing and urged the committee to respect the separation of powers during the process or risk abusing their positions.

“I can’t emphasize this enough and I’ll say it just one more time: If you impeach a president, if you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts; it is an abuse of power,” Turley said. “It’s your abuse of power.”

JUDICIARY COMMITTEE TO BEGIN IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS BY FEATURING FOUR LAW PROFESSORS

“You’re doing precisely what you’re criticizing the president for doing. We have a third branch that deals with conflicts at the other two branches, and what comes out of there, what you do with it, is the very definition of legitimacy,” Turley added.

Turley, the only witness called by Republicans to testify on Wednesday, argued against impeaching the president. He said impeachments against former Presidents Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon came after clear, undeniable crimes were committed.

“The record does not establish obstruction in this case,” Turley said.

Stanford Law professor Pamela Karlan, Harvard Law professor and Bloomberg columnist Noah Feldman and University of North Carolina Law professor Michael Gerhardt were called by Democrats on the committee, and they said Trump’s actions were impeachable.

Marine arrested for alleged human smuggling after Chinese woman found in car trunk

Westlake Legal Group US-Mexico-Border-iStock Marine arrested for alleged human smuggling after Chinese woman found in car trunk Louis Casiano fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/us/crime fox-news/tech/topics/us-marines fox news fnc/us fnc article 2bf2450d-3cca-5c7e-9821-8ff497e85c63

A Marine stationed in Southern California was arrested Monday on suspicion of attempting to smuggle two Chinese women in the trunk of a car across the U.S.-Mexico border.

The unidentified junior-enlisted Marine was taken into custody at the San Ysidro port of entry near San Diego around 1:30 p.m., Marine spokesman Lt. Cameron Edinburgh said in a statement to Fox News.

The 20-year-old is assigned to the 1st Marine Division’s headquarters battalion at Camp Pendleton, Calif.

16 MARINES ARRESTED ON ACCUSATIONS RANGING FROM HUMAN SMUGGLING TO DRUGS, OFFICIALS SAY

Customs officials found the two women in the trunk of a 2007 Ford Mustang when the Marine was pulled aside for additional screening. Customs and Border Patrol officials are investigating the incident.

“The Marine is currently being held in civilian custody.,” Edinburgh said.”The determination as to the adjudicating authority has not yet been made.”

The Marine is expected to face federal charges, a CBP spokesperson said.

Edinburgh said the Marine has not served in the Southwest Border Support Mission, where U.S. troops are assisting border agents on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Monday’s arrest comes as several other Marines stationed at Camp Pendleton are facing human trafficking charges. Six out of two dozen Marines recently pled guilty to human trafficking and drug charges at military court-martials.

Sixteen of the Marines charged were arrested in July during a battalion formation that has since been ruled unlawful and a violation of their rights.

In July, Border Patrol agents arrested two Marines, Lance Cpl. Byron Darnell Law II and Lance Cpl. David Javier Salazar-Quintero near the border when they were caught with three undocumented immigrants in the back seat of their vehicle.

US, Sudan to exchange ambassadors, ending 23-year pause, Pompeo says

Westlake Legal Group Pompeo100119 US, Sudan to exchange ambassadors, ending 23-year pause, Pompeo says Morgan Phillips fox-news/world/world-regions/africa fox-news/politics/foreign-policy/state-department fox-news/politics/finance/sanctions fox news fnc/politics fnc c0fbf94c-35c4-5765-86a0-8841a4599827 article

The United States and Sudan have agreed to begin exchanging ambassadors again after not doing so for more than two decades, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement Wednesday.

Relations have warmed between the two nations since Sudan’s 30-year dictator Omar al-Bashir was deposed in a coup in April and a civilian transitional government was formed in August.

The announcement came as Sudan’s new prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok, wrapped up his first visit to Washington.

The last ambassador sent to Sudan was terminated in 1996 with the suspension of U.S. embassy operations. The U.S. had designated Sudan as a “state sponsor of terrorism” three years before. The embassy reopened in 2002 but has been run by a charge d’affaires rather than a Senate-confirmed ambassador.

NEARLY 630 PAKISTAN GIRLS, WOMEN SOLD AS BRIDES TO CHINESE MEN: REPORT

“This decision is a meaningful step forward in strengthening the U.S.-Sudan bilateral relationship, particularly as the civilian-led transitional government works to implement the vast reforms under the political agreement and constitutional declaration” in August, Pompeo said in a statement.

Hamdok was in Washington seeking support for his nation’s transition toward democracy. One of his priorities was to win Sudan’s removal from the U.S. “state sponsor of terrorism blacklist,” which subjects the African nation to U.S. sanctions, making it ineligible for debt relief and financing from the IMF and World Bank.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION FINALLY RELEASES AID TO LEBANON WITH NO EXPLANATION 

Pompeo praised Hamdok for installing a civilian cabinet and making key personnel changes to break with the previous regime. Pompeo made no mention of the terrorism designation. Administration officials said Sudan is making progress toward removal but has not met all conditions.

Bashir served as Sudan’s president from 1989 to 2019 when he was removed from his post by Sudanese Armed Forces after months of protests and uprisings. His administration was marred by corruption and accusations of genocide. He is now in detention and is being tried by the International Criminal Court.

‘No Time to Die’ trailer reveals big change to 007’s Aston Martin DB5

James Bond’s old car has some new tricks.

In the first trailer for the upcoming installment in the 007 film series, “No Time to Die,” Daniel Craig’s Bond takes the wheel of an Aston Martin DB5, as the superspy has many times before.

While past iterations of the sports car had only a bulletproof shield that popped out of the trunk to cover the rear window, the car now appears to be fully-armored. And that’s not the only change.

Martha MacCallum: Turley had a ‘powerful moment’ in his impeachment hearing testimony

Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley had a “powerful moment” during the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearings Tuesday when he said congressional Democrats will alienate half the country if they rush the process, said Fox News host Martha MacCallum.

MacCallum appeared on Fox News to discuss Tuesday’s proceedings and credited Turley for being fair and impartial.

“It was also a very powerful moment for Jonathan Turley,” she said. “And in essence what he’s saying to everybody I think in that room, and also in the country, is just hit the brakes for a moment here folks. Let’s think about the seriousness of what is being undertaken here, especially within a year time frame of the next election.

“And he worked very diligently to sort of undercut both sides of this,” MacCallum continued. “He essentially said, this is not bribery.”

She also said the public is still unclear about the charges against Trump and claimed Democrats have failed to take enough time to clearly make their case to voters.

“There’s a tremendous rush going on. And I think that’s something that everybody feels,” MacCallum said. “[Pelosi] wants the train to go quickly down these tracks as well and to get this done before Christmas.

“I think there a lot of folks out there in the country who are still grappling with exactly what the president has been charged with here,” she added. “And as Jonathan Turley said, you have to let the public catch up. And if you don’t, he said, you will, in the end, regret it.”

During the hearing, Turley – who was called to testify by Republicans on the committee – warned against rushing the process.

“If you rush this impeachment, you’re going to leave half the country behind and certainly that’s not what the Framers wanted. You have to give the time to build a record. This isn’t an ‘impulse buy’ item, you’re trying to remove a duly-elected President of the United States,” he said.

Media outlets mum on Bloomberg News policy to investigate Trump, not Democrats, study shows

Bloomberg News’ controversial decision to investigate President Trump, but not his political opponents, has been largely ignored by the mainstream media, according to a new study.

Bloomberg News announced last week that it wouldn’t investigate its namesake owner, Mike Bloomberg, while he runs for president, or any other Democratic presidential candidate for that matter, but would continue to investigate President Trump.

Media Research Center director of media analysis Tim Graham monitored ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS since Bloomberg officially announced his candidacy on Nov. 24 through Tuesday afternoon and reported they had “failed to utter a single word – positive or negative or neutral – on their major morning or evening or Sunday interview shows” regarding Bloomberg’s policy.

The decision to avoid investigating 2020 Democratic presidential candidates sparked backlash and confusion, including former Bloomberg Washington, D.C. bureau chief Megan Murphy, who slammed the initiative in a series of scathing tweets.

Bloomberg News’ new policy prompted Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale to announce on Monday that Bloomberg reporters would no longer receive credentials to rallies or campaign events because ‘they have declared their bias openly.”

Graham wrote that ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS didn’t even find time to mention Trump’s campaign decision, either.

“Perhaps to maintain a perfect blackout,” Graham wrote.

ABC’s “World News Tonight,” Good Morning America,” “This Week,” NBC’s “Nightly News,” “Today,” “Meet the Press,” CBS’ “Evening News,” “CBS This Morning,” “Face the Nation” and “PBS NewsHour” all failed to mention Bloomberg News’ decision or the Trump campaign’s reaction, according to Graham.

Bloomberg’s entrance to the race came only 10 weeks before primary voting begins and was considered an unorthodox move that reflects anxiety within the Democratic Party about the strength of its current candidates. As a centrist with deep ties to Wall Street, Bloomberg is expected to struggle among the party’s energized progressive base.

Bloomberg returned to the Democratic party last year after switching his affiliation to Republican in 2001 to run for mayor of New York City, where he served three terms.

Virginia firefighter killed in Thanksgiving shooting shielded son in ‘last act of love’

A Virginia firefighter mistakenly killed on Thanksgiving while shielding her 5-year-old son from a spray of bullets has been praised for her “last act of love.”

Richmond Fire Department Lt. Ashley Nicole Berry, 33, was at the wrong place at the wrong time when a stray bullet struck her as she left the home of her boyfriend’s family, Hopewell Police Chief Kamran Afzal told the Richmond Times-Dispatch. He said the apartment next door was the shooter’s intended target.

Police and family members have remembered Berry’s heroic final act in the days since her death.

“We believe she was shielding her child,” Afzal told the paper. “That’s what I’d expect from [a first responder]. Firefighters and police officers give up their lives for other people and don’t even think twice about it.”

Berry’s father, Waverly Berry, recalled telling his grandson how important his mother’s sacrifice was.

“[I told him] ‘Your mother’s last act of love, for you, was to push you down,” he told WTVR-TV. “[She pushed you down] for a reason. The good thing is that God put his covering over you, so that we could still have you.”

Speaking at a news conference on Tuesday, her cousin George Berry III said it was Ashley’s “motherly instinct” that let her protect her son from a “hail of gunfire.”

“She was a beloved mother of three and will forever be her children’s hero,” he said.

No arrests have been made in the case. It was unclear what relationship the shooter had with the residents of the neighboring apartment.

Police said their only lead so far was a silver or gold SUV that was spotted speeding away from the area at the time of the shooting.
