Rick Perry denies discussing Bidens with Trump or Ukraine officials: reports

Energy Secretary Rick Perry denies ever mentioning the Bidens during discussions with Ukrainian officials or with President Trump, according to reports.

Perry’s name has come up in connection with the Trump-Ukraine phone call saga, after news outlet Axios reported that Trump told House Republicans he made the July phone call to the Ukrainian president based on Perry’s recommendation.

The controversy surrounding the call centers on allegations that Trump requested Ukraine officials investigate business dealings in the country by former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, as part of a “quid pro quo” arrangement for Ukraine to secure U.S military funding.

Democrats have alleged that such an arrangement could be grounds for Trump’s impeachment. But some Republicans say Capitol Hill testimony last week by former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Kurt Volker nullied any “quid pro quo” claim.

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry speaks at 2017 SelectUSA Investment Summit in Oxon Hill, Maryland, June 19, 2017. (Reuters)

Although neither Biden has been charged with wrongdoing, Trump has raised questions about Hunter Biden’s appointment to the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy firm, and Joe Biden’s later efforts, while vice president, to oust a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating the company’s founder.

In its story, Axios cited three sources who claim Trump pointed to Perry as having suggested the president call his Ukrainian counterpart.

According to one source, Trump said words to the effect of: “Not a lot of people know this but, I didn’t even want to make the call. The only reason I made the call was because Rick asked me to. Something about an LNG [liquified natural gas] plant,” and the other two sources agreed with that recollection, Axios reported.

But on Friday, Perry — the Republican former governor of Texas who has served as energy secretary since March 2017 — told the Christian Broadcasting Network in an exclusive interview that his dealings in Ukraine were part of a U.S. effort to help clean up corruption there, but the Bidens’ names never came up during his discussions with Trump administration officials.

“I never heard, and I talked to the president about this,” Perry told the Christian network. “I had a conversation with – a phone call – with [Trump attorney] Rudy Guiliani about it. I’ve talked to the previous [U.S.] ambassador [to Ukraine]. I’ve talked to the current ambassador.

“I’ve talked to Kurt Volker, Gordan Sondland, the EU ambassador, every name that you’ve seen out in the media, and not once, not once as God is my witness, not once was a Biden name — not the former vice president, not his son — ever mentioned.

“Not once, as God is my witness, not once was a Biden name — not the former vice president, not his son — ever mentioned.”

— Energy Secretary Rick Perry

“Corruption was talked about in the country but it was always a relatively vague term of, you know, the oligarchs and this and that and what have you.”

In addition, Politico reported Saturday that its sources claim Perry never discussed a possible investigation of the Bidens with any Ukrainian officials. The same report disclosed that Perry’s dealing in Ukraine have been more extensive than had been publicly reported – including efforts to convince Ukraine’s state-owned natural gas company Naftogaz to add Americans to its board.

The ultimate goal of Perry’s efforts in Ukraine, the secretary told the Christian network, was to help eliminate corruption in the country so that U.S. companies could have confidence doing business there.

“This has been a very intense, a very focused push to get Ukraine to clean up the corruption,” Perry told the Christian network. “It’s a very well-known fact that this was historically a corrupt place and the message was clear: You clean up the corruption and the United States will be certainly willing to come in and help you.

“I can’t go in good faith and tell a U.S. company, ‘Go and invest here, go and be involved,’ if the corruption is ongoing,” he added.

Last week Politico reported that Perry is expected to resign from the Energy Department in November, citing information from three sources, but the Energy Department responded with a statement downplaying the story.

“While the beltway media has breathlessly reported on rumors of Secretary Perry’s departure for months, he is still the Secretary of Energy and a proud member of President Trump’s Cabinet,” department spokeswoman Shaylyn Haynes wrote. “One day the media will be right. Today is not that day.”

The Politico story said Perry’s possible departure was not related to the Ukraine situation.

Meanwhile, the Axios story said Trump suggested that more information about Perry’s role in the Ukraine situation “will be coming out in the next few days.”

Larry Elder: Impeachment is just the latest Democratic attempt to take out Trump

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6092419517001_6092408978001-vs Larry Elder: Impeachment is just the latest Democratic attempt to take out Trump Larry Elder fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc Creators Syndicate article 6c43814d-e9d1-5e1c-88c9-14f1de00fa02

The Democrats’ purported outrage about President Trump‘s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky might be taken seriously by the Republicans were it not for the Democrats’ drive to oust Trump from the moment he won the presidency.

CNN’s Van Jones, with zero proof, attributed Trump’s victory to “whitelash.” Trump received 57 percent of the white vote, actually a lower percentage of the white vote than the 59 percent received by Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate in 2012. In 2008, Democrat Barack Obama received a greater percentage of the white vote than John Kerry did four years earlier. Obama also received 95 percent of the black vote. None dared call it “blacklash.”

Stunned, angry and bewildered by Trump’s win, some Democrats urged the Electoral College to refuse to certify his victory. In a Washington Post op-ed, John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, said, “The [Obama] administration should brief members of the Electoral College on the extent and manner of Russia’s interference in our election before they vote on Dec. 19.”

NEWT GINGRICH: PELOSI’S RIGGED GAME FAR CRY FROM TRUTH-SEEKING IMPEACHMENT INQUIRIES INTO NIXON, CHINA

Nearly 70 Democratic lawmakers vowed to boycott Trump’s inauguration. Nearly a dozen Democrats refused to attend Trump’s first State of the Union address. In explaining his refusal to attend, Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., said, “This is a presidency that has been built on racism, stupidity and lies, which has already wasted enough of America’s time and I will not waste any more of mine.”

More from Opinion

Trump’s refusal to turn over his tax returns provoked claims of corruption. Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., said: “What’s unprecedented is [Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin] refusing to comply with our lawful, Article I request. What’s unprecedented is a Justice Department that again sees its role as being bodyguard to the executive and not the rule of law. What’s unprecedented is an entire federal government working in concert to shield a corrupt president from legal accountability.”

There was the bill introduced in April 2017 by Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., with 67 co-sponsors, to determine whether to invoke the 25th Amendment, under which a president can be removed if “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” Raskin told Vanity Fair last month: “It is still very much on my mind and the time will come. I don’t think of it as an alternative remedy for impeachment. They address different problems. The core of the concern of impeachment is high crimes and misdemeanors committed by the president. The core problem addressed by the 25th Amendment is the mental or physical incapacity of the president.”

Joe Biden’s candidacy will be irreparably harmed by all this Ukraine business, increasing the odds that hard-left Elizabeth Warren will win the Democratic nomination.

Then there was the outcry over Trump’s payments to former mistresses. About the payments, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said: “The president is a criminal. … This criminal must be brought up by the Congress of the United States for impeachment.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said from “day one” Trump committed an impeachable offense for allegedly violating the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits all persons holding federal office from accepting “any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.” Last year, Ocasio-Cortez said:

“I think that there are serious grounds in violations of the emoluments clause from day one. I think that is, first and foremost, one of the basic elements and violations. And then, once again, it’s hard to predict what’s going to happen over the next few months. There are one or more investigations happening.”

In July, Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, wanted Trump impeached for his “racist tweets” that attacked several Democratic freshman House members known as “the squad.” Green tweeted: “[Trump’s] racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and Islamophobia can no longer be tolerated or ignored. We must impeach.”

One can only marvel at how, with a straight face, Democrats call Trump “racist” while embracing as “kingmaker” the race card-hustling Rev. Al Sharpton and refusing to denounce anti-Semitic Minister Louis Farrakhan.

Of course, for 2 1/2 years, special counsel Robert Mueller investigated allegations of Russian “collusion,” and he drilled a dry hole. On the issue of obstruction of justice, he punted. Before the Mueller report came out, House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, D-Calif., claimed there was “direct evidence [of collusion] but … also abundant circumstantial evidence.”

If Congress impeaches Trump, the Senate will not convict.

Meanwhile, all this Ukraine business just places attention on Joe’s Biden’s son. Hunter Biden received a lucrative monthly fee to sit on the board of directors of a Ukrainian energy company, despite his lack of energy expertise or his inability to speak the local language.

Joe Biden’s candidacy will be irreparably harmed, increasing the odds that hard-left Elizabeth Warren will win the Democratic nomination. Trump, post-impeachment, can credibly call himself a victim of a political vendetta and ride that narrative to victory in 2020.

Well played, Speaker Pelosi.

Babies can’t have honey for this health reason

Protecting your little one means knowing what’s safe. So why can’t babies have honey? The answer is in bacteria—and how an immature digestive system handles it.

If it’s so high in antioxidants and packed with health benefits, then why can’t babies have honey? This natural sweetener is normally a great choice—but not for little ones. In fact, for infants under the age of one, it is an absolute no-no. Here’s why.

MOM’S FUNNY BEDTIME TRICK FOR CALMING DOWN HER KIDS GOES VIRAL: ‘I’M NOT EVEN SORRY’

The Problem with Honey

The main reason honey can be dangerous for babies is because of a certain type of bacteria, clostridium, that has potential to lurk inside. Known for thriving in dust and soil, clostridium has the power to contaminate honey. In cases where it does, the honey is dangerous for a baby’s digestive system because it isn’t strong enough to fend off the bacteria. This can cause infant botulism, with serious results. Typical symptoms from this type of food poisoning include poor sucking, lethargy, a weak cry, constipation and decreased muscle tone, for example.

Food poisoning experts avoid these foods, too.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

How a Baby’s Developing Digestive System Reacts

The main reason infants can’t handle the clostridium bacteria and adults can is because of digestive system maturity. During the first year of life, a baby’s digestive system is still developing. While an adult’s body is able to move bacteria through the body before it can cause harm, an infant’s isn’t yet strong enough. So, to protect your little one, it’s important that you avoid feeding your child any honey. Don’t forget to check food labels, too.

Better Foods to Feed Your Baby

While any and all forms of honey are completely off the table until your child is at least 12 months old, plenty of other nutritious, yet sweet foods are fair game. Whether you’re looking for first food ideas or options to expand your infant’s palate, you can’t go wrong with banana or cooked sweet potatoes, for a start.

Newt Gingrich: Even I get overwhelmed by politics – here’s what I do when I need a break

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6091354158001_6091351250001-vs Newt Gingrich: Even I get overwhelmed by politics – here's what I do when I need a break Newt Gingrich fox-news/opinion fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/opinion fnc f6f5f8f6-7688-5f2a-a155-390fb2f72952 article

Most any person who keeps up with American politics today – and wants to keep his or her sanity – must, from time to time, step away from the news-social media idea storm and engage a diversion.

For me, the ideal diversion is watching movies. I have always loved film and I’ve often found that really good movies help me understand and appreciate life and other perspectives in unique ways. This has been true since I was a child growing up around Army bases across the world – and it’s still true today.

As I travel back and forth from Rome, Italy, to Washington, D.C., I often watch two or three movies on the flight. It helps clear my head so I can be effective once I land. This is the topic of this week’s “Newt’s World” episode. I share my favorite movies of all time – and recommend some of the classics I encourage you to check out. I hope you will listen.

This may seem like a lark, but I think movies are a defining part of our American culture. Movies allow us to travel the world, experience tragedy, love, anger and nearly every other emotion. They help us understand a world of good vs. evil — and the necessity that good must act to defeat evil. And sometimes they reflect a moment in time, so we can gain a better understanding of history.

TODD STARNES: ‘THE HUNT’ — HOLLYWOOD OBSESSED WITH ANNIHILATING ‘DEPLORABLES’

More from Opinion

For example, when you watch “On the Waterfront,” it’s the story of a guy who is forced to stand up to the mob so he can earn an honest living free of corruption. It conceptually came out of real events on the docks in Hoboken, N.J., in the late 1940s. In the movie, the mob controls the union, which controls the port where the man wants to work as a longshoreman. The trouble is, if he wants a job, he has to give in to the union, pay money to the union, and accept the domination of the union.

Movies help us understand a world of good vs. evil — and the necessity that good must act to defeat evil.

Marlon Brando — in one of his greatest roles — plays this guy who is unwilling to give in. Toward the end of the movie, there is a scene in which he has been badly beaten up and still trudges all the way up the pier to go to work. His act of defiance begins to break the power of the union (and therefore the mob). The sequence is among the most powerful ever shot.

In addition to being inspiring, watching the movie when it came out in 1954 told you something that was very real then — and is still real today. That is: Corruption is real, and corruption often involves exploiting the weak or the poor. It takes somebody of enormous courage to stand up to that corruption and insist on defeating it. This is all incredibly relevant today.

I hope you will listen to this week’s episode of Newt’s World. It might lead you look at a few more movies on your own and realize that there’s an extraordinary world of important art, storytelling and commentary out there (which has been growing now for about 120 years, starting with early a silent film and coming up through to where we are today). It’s going to continue to evolve and expand into virtual reality, enhanced reality, interactive games and other formats we haven’t yet imagined.

CLICK HERE FOR THE ALL-NEW FOXBUSINESS.COM

As much as Republicans complain about modern Hollywood (and vice versa), the Silver Screen is one of America’s great contributions to the world. Our shared artistic achievements are something of which we should be very, very proud.

I hope you will listen this week – and then go watch a great movie.

Pro-Trump comedian Terrence K. Williams says Twitter sent him ‘hateful conduct warning’ on day of White House visit

Westlake Legal Group williams Pro-Trump comedian Terrence K. Williams says Twitter sent him 'hateful conduct warning' on day of White House visit fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/entertainment/genres/comedy fox news fnc/entertainment fnc Brie Stimson article 2e196b23-116d-5587-a5e7-c9ad7a394249

A conservative comedian lashed out on Twitter on Friday, saying the company sent him a “hateful conduct warning,” which could affect his ability to tweet, on the same day he was to visit the White House for the Young Black Leadership Summit.

“People want to take my account down because I said Schiff Should Resign, called out AOC & I support Pres @realDonaldTrump,” Terrence K. Williams, a vocal Trump supporter, told his more than 600,000 followers, asking them to retweet a hashtag to protect his account.

“This is outrageous,” he wrote. “The day that I go to the White House is the day that they notify me that my account may be in possible violations of hateful conduct.  … None of my conduct is hateful. I am a comedian, a conservative Trump-supporting comedian and they want to take me down because people have jumped on the Trump train after watching my content.”

“I am a comedian, a conservative Trump-supporting comedian and they want to take me down because people have jumped on the Trump train after watching my content.”

— Terrence K. Williams

The message from Twitter did not prevent Williams from attending the White House event and meeting President Trump, as Williams documented in another Twitter post.

“I MET PRESIDENT TRUMP TODAY!,” the comedian wrote Friday.

“Growing up I went from foster house to foster house & i never thought I would be at the White House… let alone speak on the same stage with Pres @realDonaldTrump a man that loves the black community”

TRUMP, OMAR CLASH OVER VIDEO OF ‘SQUAD’ MEMBER DANCING AS SHE SAYS ‘LIES’ PUT LIFE AT RISK

One of the tweets flagged by Twitter involved Williams saying Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., needs to resign and asserting that Schiff helped write the whistleblower’s complaint about a Trump phone call with the president of Ukraine.

Another tweet that was flagged said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t condemn the idea of eating babies after a demonstrator suggested people should eat babies to combat climate change at one of her town halls.

A political group that supports Trump later admitted they staged the demonstration, and Ocasio-Cortez said she deliberately tries to avoid escalating confrontations when she faces hecklers at public events.

It’s not clear what part of the tweets Twitter took issue with.

Twitter said in its message to Williams, “We are writing to inform you that certain content on your Twitter account  … has been flagged for possible violations of Twitter’s hateful conduct policy and/or laws of USA.”

Twitter added that if the flagged content isn’t in violation of its policy, it may still restrict Williams’ account.

Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policy says in part: “You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.”

In April 2018, Williams spoke out after Facebook suspended his account.

Astros top Rays 3-1 as Cole fans 15, Bregman homers

HOUSTON — Gerrit Cole carried his splendid September into an outstanding October and Alex Bregman handed fans chanting MVP the mighty swing they craved and the Houston Astros survived a wild ninth inning to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 on Saturday night for a 2-0 lead in their AL Division Series.

Cole, 5-0 with a 1.07 ERA in six starts last month, set an Astros postseason record with 15 strikeouts in 7 2/3 scoreless innings to win his franchise-record 17th straight decision. The 15 strikeouts tied for third-most in a postseason game, the highest total since Roger Clemens had 15 in the 2000 AL Championship Series for the New York Yankees against Seattle.

Cole (1-0), who led the majors with 326 strikeouts in the regular season, extended his major league record with his 10th straight game with at least 10 Ks. The Rays were unable to string anything together off of him on a night he induced 33 swings and misses — the most since MLB started tracking the stat in 2008 — and threw a career-high 118 pitches.

Kevin Kiemaier doubled with two outs in the eighth and Cole was lifted after putting on Willy Adames with Cole’s first walk. The right-hander received a standing ovation as he walked off the mound and waved to the crowd just before he reached the dugout. Roberto Osuna took over and struck out Yandy Díaz to end the inning before running into trouble in the ninth.

Austin Meadows and Tommy Pham hit consecutive singles and Ji-Man Choi walked to load the bases. The Rays cut the lead to 3-1 when Avisaíl Garcia grounded into a forceout that scored Meadows. Osuna walked Brandon Lowe, reloading the bases, and Astros manager AJ Hinch brought in Will Harris.

Travis d’Arnaud worked the count full, then struck out on a high cutter, and Kiermaier grounded to first baseman Yuli Gurriel, who flipped to Harris, who stepped on first for the save.

Cole’s performance came after fellow ace and Cy Young Award contender Justin Verlander pitched seven scoreless innings to lead the Astros to a 6-2 win in the opener on Friday.

Game 3 of the best-of five series is Monday in Florida.

There were no outs in the fourth when Bregman, who hit a career-best 41 home runs in the regular season, homered off Blake Snell (0-10. All seven of Bregman’s homers have come off All-Stars, including two against Chris Sale and one each vs. Trevor Bauer, Clayton Kershaw, Corey Kluber and Kenley Jansen.

His shot gave the Astros a home run in 27 straight games, extending a franchise record.

After Lowe’s error at second gifted Houston two runs in the opener, another error on helped in the seventh. Adames bobbled Gurriel’s leadoff grounder to shortstop, then bounced the thorw to first. Carlos Correa doubled and Martín Maldonado blooped a run-scoring single to left.

Correa added a two-out RBI single off Nick Anderson in the eighth for a 3-0 lead.

Snell, the 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner, sat out from July 22-Sept. 17 after arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips in his left elbow. He didn’t get out of the third inning in any of his three September starts, but said he hoped to give the Rays five innings on Saturday. Instead he was lifted one batter after Bregman’s homer, finishing with four hits and a strikeout in 3 1/3 innings.

Correa helped Cole out with a fantastic defensive play to start the game. Díaz led off with a grounder toward Correa, who grabbed the ball backhanded while on the run and spun around for the throw to Gurriel that just beat a sliding Díaz.

Former Astro Charlie Morton, who got the win in the Rays wild-card victory, will start against Zack Greinke. Morton pitched for the Astros from 2017-18 and played a big role in their 2017 World Series title. He won Game 7 of AL Championship Series against the Yankees and Game 7 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium to give Houston its first championship.

Morton had a tough time in his last start against Houston when he gave up a season-high six runs in four innings, which tied his shortest start of season, in a 15-1 win by Astros on Aug. 27. Greinke, acquired from Arizona at the trade deadline, went 8-1 with a 3.02 ERA in 10 starts after the trade capped by a gem in his last start when he came two outs shy of his first no-hitter on Sept. 25 against Seattle.

An apparent mechanical glitch on the new Skyliner gondola ride at Walt Disney World in Florida resulted in riders being stranded for hours Saturday night, according to reports.

As of midnight, Disney had provided no details about what happened, nor did the company confirm that riders had to be rescued, according to the Orlando Sentinel. But photos, videos and park-visitor accounts posted on social media suggested that some kind of malfunction had occurred, resulting in delays for passengers still in the air.

A Disney statement said only that the ride had been experiencing “unexpected downtime,” Orlando’s FOX 35 reported. The phrase was widely mocked on social media.

After midnight, the Twitter page BlogMickey posted that all riders had been evacuated.

Each gondola accommodates about 10 people and were not air-conditioned, the Sentinel reported. The newspaper said the ride carries park visitors between Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the Epcot center, traveling about 11 mph and as high as 60 feet in the air.

One man told the paper he was aboard the ride with his disabled mother, who became ill during the wait to be evacuated. He said Disney eventually gave them four all-day passes and a $200 gifft card, according to the report.

Visitors to the park began posting photos and messages on social media, describing what happened.
