This is a spin-off from another page which demonstrates
that liiberals are wildly out of step with mainstream America and its traditional values.
Jimmy Carter has shown by his words and actions that he is a true radical. Whatever his motives may be,
he is slowly and steadily making a fool of himself. If he had just retired quietly and spent all his
time on Habitat for Humanity, he would have been a venerable and irrelevant old President, but instead he
has become quite a troublemaker. Evidently my opinion is shared by many others.
Suggests that America is Ripe for a Conservative Resurgence. In 1976, Georgia Democrat Jimmy Carter defeated
incumbent Gerald Ford in the presidential election. Jimmy Carter's time as president was defined by global turmoil and
economic woes. It is for good reason that we've begun hearing about the similarities between Joe Biden's early term and
Jimmy Carter's lone term as president. For armchair economists, the word "stagflation" has become as synonymous with
Jimmy Carter's America as the word "hyperinflation" is synonymous with the Weimar Republic in the 1920s. Put simply,
stagflation occurs with an economy "that is experiencing a simultaneous increase in inflation and a stagnation of economic
output." High unemployment yields stagnant economic output. [...] So, what happened after Jimmy Carter's presidency?
Ronald Reagan, of course.
Trump Is Toto.
If you remember The Wizard of Oz you will recall that Toto, Dorothy's dog, pulled back the curtain, revealing that the
wizard was just a little guy working a panel of sound and light gimmicks to fool people into thinking he was more omnipotent
than he really was. In the same way, the President's killing of Qassem Soleimani and the aftermath reveals the
four-decades-long treatment of Iranian terrorism and Israel by the foreign-policy establishment — our presidents
from Jimmy Carter up to now and Congress — was based on myths.
Donald Trump and
the mythmakers. [A]s journalist Lee Smith explained in Tablet online magazine this week, when Iranian
"students" seized the US Embassy in Tehran in November 1979 and held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days, they placed the
Carter administration in a dilemma: If President Jimmy Carter acknowledged that the "students" weren't students, but
soldiers of Iran's dictator Ayatollah Khomeini, the US would be compelled to fight back. And Carter and his advisers
didn't want to do that. So rather than admit the truth, Carter accepted the absurd fiction spun by the regime that
Khomeini was an innocent bystander who, try as he might, couldn't get a bunch of "students" in central Tehran to free the
hostages. At the base of their decision to prefer fantasy to reality in regards to Iran was the hope that Khomeini and
his "students" would be satisfied with a pound or two of American flesh and wouldn't cause Washington too many other problems.
Jimmy Carter Is Our Worst Ex-President. At the age of 95, Jimmy Carter is now the longest-living U.S. president
in history. "Great men are a dime a dozen," MSNBC's Joe Scarborough noted on the former president's birthday.
"Jimmy Carter has always been something far greater than that. He has lived his life as a good man. And that is
exactly what America needs right now." Now, I realize the Trump-obsessed Scarborough is attempting to juxtapose the
former president with the present one. But the canonization of Carter has always been transparent revisionism.
Habitat for Humanity or not, the world would have been a far better place had Carter retired from the world stage after his
presidency. Carter's post-presidency is a stark reminder, in fact, that "good" personal decorum doesn't necessarily
translate into "good" political actions.
The Editor says...
Jimmy Carter looks almost like George Washington compared to Barack H. Obama, who will probably
always be "Our Worst Ex-President," unless Hillary Clinton is elected someday.
How Old Is Too Old
(to Be President)? According to Vanity Fair, when Jimmy Carter, about to turn 95, was asked at a recent event
at the Carter Center if he would consider running again — he only served one term, although it felt longer to some
of us — the ex-president gave a definitive no, acknowledging he could hardly walk, and said we should set a limit
at 80. That sounds about right, at least for now before we are all cyborgs. The behavior of Biden, who would
already be months into his 79th year on Inauguration Day, should more than ratify that conclusion.
If We Could Put
a Man on the Moon . . . President Carter was not entirely wrong when, in 1979, he said that America was facing
a "crisis of confidence." And he was not wrong to point to the moon landing, then just 10 years past, as a symbol of
America's strength. Nor was he was not wrong when he called America's people, values, and confidence the greatest resource
of the country saying that we would have to renew all three lest we fall to "fragmentation and self-interest" and turn to
"worship" of "self-indulgence and consumption." Unfortunately, Carter had the charisma of a damp mop cloth and inspired
about as much confidence as Lehman Brothers in late 2008.
2020 task: Convince voters to overlook economy. On Oct. 28, 1980, in the final debate of his race against
Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan asked a question that has come to define presidential politics. "Next Tuesday all of you will go
to the polls, will stand there in the polling place and make a decision," Reagan said. "I think when you make that decision,
it might be well if you would ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago?" The answer for most voters was
no, and Reagan won the election with 489 electoral votes to Carter's 49.
have an election truther problem. For all the effort the press puts into agonizing over right-wing conspiracy
mongers, it would be nice if newsrooms devoted even an ounce of that same energy to worrying about the Left's conspiracists.
I am talking about the Democratic election truthers. They are loud, they are proud, and they are [...] a lot more
high-profile than social media trolls. What's more, their lunacy goes basically unchallenged by the same national reporters
and commentators who have written nonstop for the last three years about the dangers of right-wing political agitprop. The
latest Democrat to float a baseless conspiracy theory challenging the legitimacy of a major U.S. election is Jimmy Carter, who
has yet to make a single worthwhile contribution to American life.
Carter, Electoral Oracle. Jimmy Carter's latest is at best delusional. It seems almost inconceivable that
a former president would say something like this, but we live in a time when all norms have been abandoned by the Democratic
Party: ["]There is no doubt that the Russians did interfere in the election.["] By buying a
tiny handful of Facebook ads that promoted Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein, and attacked Marco Rubio and Hillary
Clinton, and, allegedly, by phishing the DNC's email system with the result that more people became aware of the obvious fact
that the DNC had helped Hillary get the nomination.
lost the election': Jimmy Carter says Trump an illegitimate president. Jimmy Carter said he doesn't believe President
Trump won the 2016 election legitimately. Speaking at a Carter Center conference on human rights on Friday [6/28/2019], the
former president said a full investigation into Russian interference "would show that Trump didn't actually win the election in
2016." "He lost the election and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf," Carter said.
Candidates Crave Catastrophic Carter. Democrats seeking the White House are turning to Georgia Democrat Jimmy
Carter, who occupied the residence from 1976 to 1980. Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was born two years after Carter
lost to Ronald Reagan, but pronounced the one-term Democrat "an extraordinary person." For Cory Booker, 50, Jimmy Carter was
a "guiding light and inspiration" but the most outspoken candidate was Minnesota Democrat Amy Klobuchar. "Jimmy Carter
is a decent, well-meaning person, someone who people are talking about again given the time that we are in," explained
Klobuchar, who was 16 when Carter was elected.
Carter: Kavanaugh confirmation was a 'very serious mistake'. Former President Jimmy Carter jumped into the political
fray recently over newly confirmed Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, saying he was "unfit" to be on the Supreme Court. While speaking
to a class at Emory College Wednesday Mr. Carter said Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation was a "very serious mistake," The Emory Wheel
reported. He also criticized the Senate for being "subservient" to President Trump.
Who's more 'careless with the truth,' Donald Trump
or his enemies? Of course Trump's enemies Dishonesty(#NeverTrumpers, Democrats, the media and everyone else
who despises or envies success) claim he's about as dis-honest as they come. But to Trump's supporters and foes alike,
honesty is in the minds of the believer. Former President Jimmy Carter recently weighed-in on the subject and found
today's commander-in-chief lacking in the truth-telling department. Tal Axelrod reported at The Hill, "Former
President Jimmy Carter had some harsh words for President Trump, telling CBS News he is 'careless with the truth.'
"'I think it's well-known that the incumbent president is very careless with the truth,' he said.
10 Most Destructive Americans of My 8 Decades. [#4] Jimmy Carter: Carter ignited modern day radical Islam
by abandoning the Shah and paving the way for Ayatollah Khomeini to take power in Tehran. Iran subsequently became the
main state sponsor and promoter of international Islamic terrorism. When Islamists took over our embassy in Tehran,
Carter was too weak to effectively respond thus strengthening the rule of the radical Islamic mullahs.
Carter Says Jesus Would Be Okay With Some Abortions. Former President Jimmy Carter, in a new interview with the
pro-abortion Huffington Post, said he thinks Jesus would be okay with some abortions. Specifically, carter thinks Jesus
would accept killing babies in abortions in cases of women who are victims of rape or incest.
The Editor says...
The Left is happy to help Jimmy Carter share his baseless speculation about Jesus approving of fetal homicide, but if
there is a more credible opinion to the contrary, they don't want to hear it.
Center Sued for Providing Support to Terrorists, Defrauding Taxpayers. The Trump administration is seeking the
dismissal of a suit alleging the nonprofit helmed by former president Jimmy Carter has used taxpayer funding to provide
material support to international terrorist groups, including Hamas. [...] Former President Carter's ongoing and well-documented
interactions with Hamas and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) are tantamount to material support for terror
groups, the suit alleges citing evidence Carter hosted these officials at his Center's offices. This also includes
providing services and advice to Hamas and other individuals and organizations designated as terrorists by the U.S.
government. While the Trump administration's lawyers admit in their motion to dismiss that Carter has in fact met
with designated terrorists and terror groups, they are seeking to have the case tossed because it would be too expensive to
adjudicate in court.
a book, Jimmy Carter can't stop popping off. Jimmy Carter is back, filling our television screens and newspapers with
nonsensical blather, fawning journalists at his beck and call. [...] The young millennials have no memory of Carter or the mess he
caused, and the leftists of course like it. That gives him a pretty big reach now in his dotage.
Carter Teaches His Congregation About Single-Payer Health System. Former President Jimmy Carter predicted the
U.S. will eventually transition to a government-run health care system while addressing his church congregation Sunday
[7/23/2017]. "I think eventually we'll have a single-payer system," Carter said while speaking to a large crowd before
teaching his Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga., according to the Wall Street Journal.
Carter's comments come in the midst of ongoing GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare with more conservative legislation.
for the 'worst former president'. Like an episode of "Survivor," pitting one generation against another, former
President Jimmy Carter is vying to retain the title of our worst and most pestiferous former president against the coming
challenge by President Obama. Mr. Carter's latest attempt to keep his title was in an op-ed in the Nov. 28 New
York Times. There, he argued that President Obama should, in his final days in office, recognize a Palestinian state as
a legitimate nation and require Israel to return to its borders as they existed before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war[.]
to Learn from History. Gullibility was not limited to the Iranians who swelled the ranks of the fraud. On
the other side of the world, the President of the United States of America — Jimmy "lust in my heart" Carter —
saw Khomeini as a saint and a savior. Carter provided the crucial support to the man whose greatest claim to the rank of
the Grand Ayatollah was his lengthy dissertation on matters concerning sexual intercourse with animals.
Carter: 'I Believe Jesus Would Approve of Gay Marriage'. Former President Jimmy Carter
argued Tuesday Jesus Christ would "approve" of gay marriage if he were around in an interview with
HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill. Carter offered up his support for the recent Supreme Court
ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide, while using Jesus to prop up his reasoning.
'I Believe Jesus Would Approve Of Gay Marriage'. Carter took on the issue from a
Biblical perspective and declared that it was his view Jesus would have approved of the gay
marriage. "I believe Jesus would. I don't have any verse in scripture," Carter said.
'I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage, but that's just my own personal belief. I think
Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone
else, and I don't see that gay marriage damages anyone else."
U.S. is 'The Most Warlike Country on Earth'. Former President Jimmy Carter referred to
the United States as the most "warlike country on Earth" last week during an interview with the
nonprofit Aspen Institute. "I think the American superpower goal should be to the champion of
peace, and to be the champion of human rights, and to be the champion of the environment and to be
the most generous nation on Earth," he said. "Those are the elements that I hope eventually the
United States will set as goals. We are the most warlike country on Earth. We are laggard in
addressing the problem of global warming, for instance, and we are now violating about ten of the
30 paragraphs in the universal declaration of human rights, so I think this is something we
should look upon as our duties for the future."
Carter Accuses America Of 'Racist Tendencies'. Yes, the second most horrible POTUS in
U.S. history, Jimmy Carter, wants us to know that we are all a bunch of racists. This,
from a man who called the Hamas leader a "man of peace," refused to meet with Netanyahu because it
would be a "waste of time," and claimed that Israel is guilty of "genocide" and should be investigated
for "war crimes."
Carter: White Americans cling to 'feelings of superiority' toward minorities. Former President Jimmy Carter
told AARP Bulletin during a recent interview that many Americans hold "feelings of superiority" toward minorities.
Mr. Carter spoke on a range of subjects with the magazine, including campaign spending and lobbyists, but he made a point
to say that the U.S. still is lacking in terms of safeguarding civil rights. "The recent publicity about mistreatment
of black people in the judicial and police realm has been a reminder that the dreams of the civil rights movement have not
been realized. [...] Many Americans still have racist tendencies or feelings of superiority to people of color," Mr. Carter
told AARP Bulletin, The Hill reported Thursday [6/4/2015].
The Editor says...
I guess I don't know what "the dreams of the civil rights movement" are or were. I thought the civil rights movement
was about blacks being required to sit in the back of the city bus, being confined to their own neighborhoods, and being
badgered at the polls. All that was eliminated decades ago, but President Carter seems to thing that nothing has
improved since 1960.
Obama a villain? Or only delusional? Liberals are still lulled by lying Democrats with
big smiles. Jimmy Carter's big toothy smile was a factor in his election, and here we are forty
years later, stuck with a nation of 70 million Muslims who are told to prepare for war against us
every single day: Against Israel, against America, against the Sunni Arabs. Jimmy Carter looked
on passively when the Ayatollah overthrew a strong, modernizing, pro-Western ally in Iran. That is
why we are now threatened by a brainwashed nation of suicidal fanatics going for nuclear weapons.
Carter, Will You Please Go Home. All Carter's "peace" trips ever do is make war more
likely by giving aggressors like Hamas legitimacy. [...] Carter's meddling in North Korea during the
Clinton administration led to years wasted formulating an Agreed Framework on nukes that ultimately failed.
Jimmy Carter, Light Never Goes On When It Comes To Terrorism. The man who many call
the "greatest living ex-president" is at it again, suggesting that the horrific terrorist attacks in
Paris are partly Israel's fault. Speaking on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart, Jimmy Carter was
asked if the violence in Paris had causes other than Islamic extremism. "Well, one of the origins
for it is the Palestinian problem," Carter said. "And this aggravates people who are affiliated in
any way with the Arab people who live in the West Bank and Gaza, what they are doing now — what's
being done to them. So I think that's part of it."
The Editor says...
I have never heard anybody refer to Jimmy Carter as the "greatest living ex-president." There are plenty of people
who called him the worst president in U.S. history, until a couple of years ago, when Barack H. Obama took over that role.
Flitting off to Paris on your own 747 can be such a chore! Carter:
Give Obama A Break for Not Going to Paris, He Just Came Back from Vacation. Former president Jimmy Carter
told a group of reporters that they should give Barack Obama a bit of a break for not attending the recent solidarity
march in Paris, which dozens of other world leaders attended. "I don't think there's any need for criticism," he
said, according to the Wall Street Journal. "The president sometimes can't go where he'd prefer to go," Carter
continued. "He's just come back from vacation so I think he's probably got a lot on his desk." (Obama
recently came back from his Hawaii Christmas vacation, where he was roundly criticized for ruining a wedding.)
The Editor says...
Mr. Obama obviously doesn't have anything "on his desk," because he spent the day watching television.
Carter Invokes Allah In His Speech to Terror-Tied Islamic Group's Conference. Former
president Jimmy Carter decided to give an alleged Muslim Brotherhood front organization legitimacy
by being the first president to address their annual conference. In his keynote speech this
weekend, he told attendees to mobilize against violence targeting women and spoke passionately about
abuses to women. If only he had stopped there. "Men and women are created equally from one soul,"
Carter said. "If you were taught by your parents or you believe you're superior to your wife just
because you're a man, Allah says your wrong." He didn't forget to address the Israel-Palestine
peace initiative. As usual, he sided with Palestinians over Jews.
Carter Tells Islamic Society: The Principles of Allah 'Will Bring Peace and Justice to All'. Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter
addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world.
Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its "rigid" views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more "rigid."
For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn't allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against
Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having
a Muslim father.
The Editor says...
A Muslim father? Such as Barack H. Obama, Senior?
is Jimmy Carter speaking at a Muslim convention? Jimmy Carter is scheduled to be the
keynote speaker this weekend at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America
(ISNA). To many Americans, that doesn't warrant more than a shrug of the shoulders, but the
planned Saturday appearance is also drawing criticism from some conservatives who say the event
looks to be another example of the former president implicitly undercutting US foreign policy —
in this case, opposition to Islamic terrorism.
Former US president
joins opposition to Keystone XL. Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates
Wednesday [4/16/2014] in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger "more climate
upheaval" around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry,
Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: "Your decision on the
Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy." The missive, published as an advertisement
in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes
him the first former president to come out against the pipeline.
Carter: U.S. Shouldn't Bomb Iran Even If They Get a Nuclear Weapon. Former President Jimmy Carter joined
MSNBC's Chris Matthews for an interview on Hardball Wednesday [4/9/2014] and made some news by saying he does not think
the United States should bomb Iran even if they were to succeed in building an operational nuclear weapon. This
statement differs not only from recent comments made by former Vice President Dick Cheney but also from the stated
position of President Barack Obama.
dismisses Clinton's State work. Former President Carter says Hillary Clinton "took very little action" as secretary of
State to bring about peace. Carter, 89, made the remark about the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic front-runner
in a phone interview with Time magazine Wednesday night after he spoke at the Civil Rights Summit in Austin, Texas.
Jimmy Carter Says Iranian Hostage Takers Were "College Students".
There has been outrage in the U.S. over Iran's bid to have one of the hostage takers who stormed the
American Embassy in Tehran serve as its ambassador to the UN in New York. Twenty-nine Republican
senators have written to President Obama urging him to deny a visa to Hamid Aboutalebi, who was a
member of a Muslim student group that took over the Embassy in 1979 and held 52 Americans hostage
for 444 days. The State Department says it's "troubled" by the move, but has not said
if it will refuse Aboutalebi a visa. Now Aboutalebi has found support in the
unlikely entirely predictable figure of former President turned
globe-trotting America-basher Jimmy Carter.
Jimmy Carter believes U.S. is spying on
him. Former President Jimmy Carter believes U.S. intelligence agencies are spying on him —
so much so, he eschews email to avoid government spies. "You know, I have felt that my own communications are
probably monitored," Carter told NBC's Andrea Mitchell in an interview broadcast Sunday [3/23/2014]. "And when
I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write a letter myself, put it in the post office
and mail it. "I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored," Carter continued.
The Editor says...
Brilliant plan, Mr. President. Everybody knows the three-letter intelligence agencies can't read paper mail.
Dangerous Times: Are Obama's Syrian
Stumbles Good for America? Looking back, it seems that Jimmy Carter and his NSC advisor Zbig Brzezinski actually helped the
sadistic Khomeini regime rise to power after pulling the rug out from our ally, the Shah of Iran. Apparently Carter thought the United
States deserved to lose Iran as an ally because of what happened in 1953, almost three decades before, when Stalin was in power in the Soviet
Union. This is plainly insane, but Carter and Brzezinski still defend their screwy reasoning today, while the Iranian theocracy kills its
young people and commits aggression against us.
Carter Visits Abbas to Sabotage
Peace Talks. Carter arrived in Israel this week with former Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland and former Irish
president Mary Robinson, two other critics of Israel looking for something unhelpful to do with their time. The trio came to Israel
to heap more attacks on the Israeli people, as would be expected. But they also met with Mahmoud Abbas.
Familiar? Islamists Storm U.S. Embassy and America Apologizes. Over 33 years ago, Islamist rioters stormed an
American embassy. U.S. sovereignty was violated and hostages were taken. The immediate response from America, though,
was conciliatory — as if those who had insulted the United States could be convinced to think better of their target if those who
had just been attacked made enough apologies. The result was the Iran hostage crisis that helped bring down the
administration of Jimmy Carter.
The Carter 'legacy'. With his every utterance,
Jimmy Carter continues to make us grateful that he was only a one-term president and, therefore, limited in his ability to do the nation lasting harm.
Likely Voters: Carter Was a Better
President than Obama. According to a Newsweek/Daily Beast poll of likely voters, Barack Obama now rates behind Jimmy Carter in the
pantheon of great presidents. The poll asked likely voters to list the two best and the two worst presidents the history of the United States.
Jimmy Carter, World Chaos, and the Muslim World Takeover. The
American government together with the British, French, and others are determined to divide the Land [of Israel] and give more than half of it to
the enemies of God. In December 2011, America's Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, said "Israel needs to get to the damn table." In
other words, America must force Israel to give away more of God's Land. Our government (not just the administration of Hussein Obama but
many past administrations) has cursed America by demanding that Israel give up the Land that God told them they must never sell. Therefore
I state categorically that America is finished. [...] And to think that Jimmy Carter, Baptist Sunday School teacher and peanut farmer, unleashed
this horror on the world.
Pops Up And Blames Israel Over Iran. I thought Groundhog Day was last month. But, I guess any
discussion regarding Israel defending itself wouldn't be complete without the input of a miserable failure at being
POTUS, and a rabid anti-Semite.
Obama goes full Carter. President
Obama had a Jimmy Carter moment this afternoon when he dragged his daughters, 10 and 13, into his re-election campaign,
using them as political props in the way Jimmy Carter used his youngest daughter, Amy Carter, then 13, to try to score
points in the 1980 presidential debate — a debate that turned a close race into the biggest humiliation of an
incumbent president in 52 years.
More comparisons of Obama to Carter can be found
on this page.
The Radical Left's Latest Weapon of Fear. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter warned Americans of a
pending "national catastrophe" in a prime time nationally televised speech. "The Oil and natural gas we
rely on for 75 percent of our energy are running out." Resources were being depleted so fast that
the world "could use up all the proven reserves of oil in the entire world by the end of the next decade,"
Carter said. Rather obviously, Carter's end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it prediction didn't happen. ... Instead
of running out of oil and gas as Carter predicted, the inventory of America's recoverable domestic reserves has
Gallup: Only Carter was less popular. In his
third year as president, Barack Obama was less popular than all but one president — Carter — since
Harry Truman in their third year as president. According to Gallup, President Obama's average approval was 44.4% in
Year Three of his administration, above only Jimmy Carter.
The President Who Never Was.
[Scroll down] How odd that Obama has tried on every mask except one that naturally fits him, that of Jimmy
Carter. Carter, remember, railed about luxury boats and three-martini lunches, as if that kind of indulgence
had sent the economy into 8% unemployment, 12% inflation, and 15% interest rates. Our problem was always
Nixon of old, never Carter of the present. Beneath the utopian Christian caring was the mean streak and
petulance; Carter, you see, loved humanity but not humans.
New Libyan Regime Protecting the Lockerbie Bomber. [Scroll down] Former President Jimmy
Carter was widely quoted in 1986 denouncing President Reagan's raid on Gaddafi's compound in Tripoli.
Carter didn't object that the U.S. Navy jets had failed to kill the Libyan dictator. Carter thought it a
war crime that we even tried to take out this killer of Americans. ... Of course, Carter's spinelessness was
abundantly demonstrated and a major reason why voters in forty-four states in 1980 booted him unceremoniously
from the White House.
Worst Steward of the Economy in American History. It has been debated whether Jimmy Carter or
Barack Obama is the epitome of incompetence in modern U.S. history. While Carter made myriad mistakes
and was in over his head, he did not put the country in an untenable position regarding its future.
Who's the worst president in American history? A
growing bipartisan consensus on Obama. For more than 30 years, a wounded Jimmy Carter
has roamed the world speaking ill of whomever the sitting president might be and occasionally making it
difficult for that president to make policy. Mr. Obama already has surpassed him, speaking ill of
America as a whole while being president.
The Obamayyad of Barry
Hussein. Jimmy Carter and his National Security Advisor, Zbig Brzezinski, are personally
responsible for the Islamic radicalization of the Middle East — by pulling the Persian rug out from
our loyal ally, the Shah of Iran, and letting mass-murdering thug Ayatollah Khomeini take over a country of
70 million people. ... But nobody is going to hold Jimmy and Zbig responsible, because (a) they're
Democrats, and therefore protected by the media mafia, and (b) they're never responsible for anything bad,
no matter what the facts may be.
40th anniversary of drug war, condemnation from Carter. On the 40th anniversary of the War
on Drugs, one of its oldest opponents has once again come out swinging. In a New York Times op-ed
titled "Call Off the Global Drug War," former President Jimmy Carter called the global antidrug campaign
a "total failure" and said U.S. policy in particular was "more punitive and counterproductive" than in
'Change' Isn't All The Mideast Needs. The lesson of Jimmy Carter's incompetent, human rights-based
naivete masquerading as a foreign policy is that the "devil" you know is often better than his replacement.
The Ayatollah Khomeini turned out to be far worse than the Shah of Iran — and his Islamofascist regime, now
more than 30 years old, remains in power today, seeking nuclear weapons. Obama claimed "the people
of the region have achieved more change in six months than terrorists have accomplished in decades." But
we don't yet know what "change," particularly in Egypt, will mean.
Jimmy Carter Denounces
America From North Korea. What will become of Barack Hussein Obama if America pulls out
of its tailspin and ejects him from office in 2012? Given his track record of putting us down in
other countries, he will probably step into the shoes Jimmy Carter has been warming up for him.
In the latest of his many displays of moonbattery at its most vile, Carter has chosen the communist
concentration camp known as North Korea as a fit place to accuse the USA of human rights violations.
Does Jimmy Carter Have
No Shame? Former President Jimmy Carter was just in Pyongyang, North Korea and blames the United
States largely for the situation in the country. The United States and South Korea have chosen "to
deliberately withhold food aid to the North Korean people because of political or military issues not
related" and this amounts to a "human rights violation."
Ex-President Jimmy Carter calls for North
Korea aid. Former US President Jimmy Carter has accused the US and South Korea of human rights
violations against North Koreans by withholding food aid. Mr Carter made the comments after a three-day
private visit to Pyongyang.
Mystery Gift for Kim Jong Il. [Former President] Carter reportedly brought a gift to Kim when
he visited North Korea last year, and brought Kim another gift when he dropped by Pyongyang last week.
Presumably Carter also brought a gift to Kim's father, Kim Il Sung, when he visited North Korea in 1994.
But what are these gifts that Carter has been bringing?
Bashes U.S. In Meeting With Communists. The only American president to publicly support Middle
Eastern terrorism has completed a schmooze fest with a communist dictator in a country that appears on the
U.S. State Department's list of terrorist-sponsoring nations. It marks the latest "humanitarian"
mission for Jimmy Carter, who just a few years ago became the only American commander-in-chief to
participate in a hug fest with the head of the world's leading Middle Eastern terrorist group.
the Elder. When he was president, Carter tried to order most of the US troops stationed in South
Korea home despite warning by generals, Congress, the Japanese and, yes, even the Chinese, that a withdrawal
of American troops could destabilize the region and invite agression from North Korea. But back then
Carter knew much better than the rest of us how to make peace with dictators. The price of peace is
Jimmy Carter: Disgraceful
In Cuba. Former President Jimmy Carter recently paid a visit to Cuba where he was treated more as
a friend than as a former head of state. The Cuban government has now released a translation of his
appearance on Cuban television. His performance was, well, disgraceful.
not concerned about Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood. Former President Jimmy Carter, whose foreign
policy naivety and weakness facilitated the rise of Islamofacism in Iran, is confident Egypt has a promising
future: The Muslim Brotherhood will be overwhelmed by Jeffersonian Democrats — and the
formerly pro-Mubarak military will bow to the will of the people and welcome free elections, he says.
Obama Retreats, Ahmadinejad
Advances. We are witnessing an exact copy of Jimmy Carter's abandonment of a pro-Western and fairly
enlightened Iran in 1979. Carter allowed the first radical Islamist power to consolidate in the Middle East;
more than a million people died in the war that followed. Jimmy still maintains his innocence, just as he's
telling us now there's nothing to fear from the Muslim Bros, in spite of their famous five Rules for Islamic
Radicals. They make Alinsky look like a guppy next to a Great White shark.
The Jimmy Carter Chronicles.
For those of you not entirely certain about where to stand on a complex, dynamic situation in Egypt, fear no more:
Jimmy Carter has waded in to add both clarity and certainty. "I think that the Muslim Brotherhood is not
anything to be afraid of," Carter told a wide-eyed, admiring university audience in Austin, Texas. The
man who presided over the replacement of the Shah with the world's worst theocratic-terror state confidently
predicted that the Muslim Brotherhood "will be subsumed in the overwhelming demonstration of desire for
freedom and democracy."
Jimmy Carter Sued for 'Inaccurate'
Anti-Israel Book. Five readers have filed a $5 million lawsuit against former president
Jimmy Carter, alleging that his 2006 anti-Israel book, "Peace Not Apartheid," was so riddled with
inaccuracies and misleading statements that it violated consumer-protection laws.
Jimmy Carter Deserve To Be Sued? In a suit filed in federal court in New York, former president
Jimmy Carter, along with his publisher, Simon & Schuster, is being sued by five readers of his 2006 book,
"Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid." The suit alleges that the defendants violated New York's consumer
protection laws by committing "deceptive acts in the conduct of business, trade, or commerce."
There's No Abe
Lincoln in the Muslim Hood. When Jimmy Carter brought the first really suicidal Islamic
fanatics to power in Tehran in 1979, he was facing exactly the same correlation of forces. And he
totally misread them. Andrew Young has written that the Carter State Dept. thought Ayatollah Khomeini
was "some kind of saint." This kind of saint had his hands deep in the blood of innocents long before
he took over in Tehran. ... What we are seeing in Egypt, Iran, and maybe Tunisia was brought to you by the
appeasement faction of the Democratic Party, led by Jimmy and Zbig.
Carter's home neat costs U.S. a tidy sum. The tennis court at former President Jimmy Carter's
private home is swept twice a day, his pool is cleaned daily and his grass cut, his flower beds weeded and
his windows washed on a regular basis — all at taxpayers' expense.
Carter, greedy grabber. Jimmy Carter is a miracle worker: He's found a way to milk a
peanut. ... And given his history of scolding Americans for their "worship [of] self-indulgence and
consumption," it's especially delicious to see him now.
Jimmy Carter Gone Wild.
There used to be a code among former presidents that you did not speak ill of other occupants of the White House. ... But
former President Jimmy Carter is apparently not a code keeper. On his recent book tour, Carter has taken to blasting
the Republican Party and Bush-the-Younger. Carter is also very, very disenchanted with Fox News.
Disastrous Model. Former president Jimmy Carter likewise seems to feel that he's still too smart
for us. Carter, who turns 86 on Friday, is hitting the news shows to explain why he remains America's
"superior" ex-president — and why more than 30 years ago he was so successful yet so underappreciated
as our chief executive. Most Americans instead remember a very different President Carter, who finished
his single term with 18 percent inflation, 18 percent interest rates, 11 percent unemployment,
long gas lines, and a world in chaos, from hostage-taking in Teheran to Soviet Communist aggression in
Afghanistan and Central America.
According To Jimmy. Well, he's back! In his "White House Diary" Jimmy Carter engages in
his latest attempt to burnish his historical reputation. His previous efforts, and there have been many,
have earned him a dubious Nobel Peace Prize, but they have changed few minds here at home, because many Americans
are old enough to remember him. Now, the ex-President begins his valedictory tour, something of a last
hurrah, as it were, in the hopes of establishing a fraudulently positive historical legacy.
Can't Stop the
Typing. By giving one of America's dopiest presidents the bum's rush, the American people
ensured that Mr. Carter would spend the rest of his life trying to even the score, trying to persuade them
that they had made a huge mistake when they cast their lot with Ronald Reagan, trying to convince them that
they were a bunch of jerks. The particular form of retribution Carter chose was as sinister and cruel
as any known to man. He took his pen in hand and began to write books.
Days Of Malaise, Full Of Contempt.
In the summer of 1979, President Jimmy Carter gave the most incompetent address in the history of the presidency —
his infamous "malaise speech." Incredibly, Democrats today are imitating Carter's disastrous moaning and
groaning: The people don't know what's good for them, and they should just be silent and trust their
'Probably superior' to other ex-presidents. In an interview with NBC's Brian Williams, former
President Jimmy Carter, who has been a target of the right through the years, lauded his own post-presidency,
telling Williams, "I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents."
7 Worst Presidents Of The Last Hundred Years. [#4] Jimmy Carter (D): Not only did
Carter stand by and watch our ally, the Shah of Iran, get overthrown by fundamentalist crazies, he botched
the Iranian hostage crisis that sprang from the overthrow in almost every way possible. It's also
worth noting that the Soviets were inspired by Carter's naiveté to invade Afghanistan on his watch.
In other words, both the war on terror and Iran's quest for nuclear weapons can be directly traced back to
Jimmy Carter's presidency. To top off all of that incompetence, Carter gave away the Panama Canal.
Obama Is Colluding
with a New Fascist Imperialism. [Scroll down] We can see that delusional thinking right
now in Barack Hussein Obama and in Hillary, just as we saw it in the Carter administration —
which gave Islamic fascism its first taste of real power in 1979. It's important to remember that
reactionary Islamic fascism was mostly gone after the Ottoman Empire crumbled in 1917. A number of
Muslim countries desperately tried to modernize for sixty years — until Jimmy Carter gave the
pre-medieval throwback Ayatollah Khomeini his first big chance in 1979. That started a race among all
the suppressed Islamofascists in Sunni and Shiite countries.
Have You No
Shame, Leftists? [Scroll down slowly] Or consider Jimmy Carter, who has spent the past three decades
cozying up to the likes of Yasser Arafat and working overtime to prove that people who call him America's biggest
anti-Semite aren't just whistling "Dixie." But, not content with merely condemning Israel's Jews, he branched out a
while ago and condemned Southern Baptists for oppressing their womenfolk, going so far as to turn his back on the church he
has belonged to for his entire life.
Jimmy Carter's Second
Term. The year 1980 was considered a bellwether year in presidential politics. America was
firmly caught up in the economic and foreign policy nightmare that was the Carter Administration. The
prime rate was 20.5%, inflation was running at 14.8%, unemployment was a then record 10.8%, the 30 year
mortgage rate was a staggering 18.5% and gas prices (adjusted to 2008 dollars) were $3.45 a gallon. The
soviet invasion of Afghanistan had given President Carter reason to boycott the 1980 Olympic Games. Oh,
and let's not leave out the surrendering control of the Panama Canal. ... One only has to look at the twin
disasters of the creation of the Departments of Education and Energy to realize he was a policy wonk gone
Nonsense. In the latter days of the Carter presidency, it became fashionable to say that the office had
become unmanageable and was simply too big for one man. Some suggested a single, six-year presidential term. ... It
turned out that the country's problems were not problems of structure but of leadership. Reagan and Clinton had
it. Carter didn't.
ADL: Carter has reverted to
anti-Israel stance, despite recent apology. Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter's
apology to the Jewish community over his anti-Israel views should not be taken seriously, an
Anti-Defamation League statement said Sunday, claiming that Carter had continued attacking
Israel even after sending an apologetic letter to the leaders of the U.S. Jewish community.
Jimmy Carter, the
Jew-hater who cried racist. America's worst ex-president Jimmy Carter made a ridiculous charge
on Tuesday that Joe Wilson's outburst was "based on racism" and, more broadly, that "an overwhelming portion
of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black
man." It's ironic that a man who has such hate in his heart would call other people racists.
cries of racism are both wrong and destructive. Failed President and presumptuous fool that he
is, Jimmy Carter has looked into the heart of America and discovered racism among those who most strenuously
oppose the nation's first black occupant of the White House. Carter's diagnosis of prejudice in the
anti-Obama fevers was both an insult to the public and a damaging blow to rational debate over the hugely
contentious agenda that the President is seeking to advance.
Perhaps Jimmy Carter
is racist. Jimmy Carter time and again blames the Middle East's only true democracy, Israel, for
the woes in that region while providing excuses for Arab terrorists, and there we have it. This Sunday
school-teaching Baptist is an anti-Semite, a hater of Jews, someone whose political views on the subject of
Arab-Israeli peace are most persuasively informed by his deep-seated bigotry.
Chorus. Did Attorney General Eric Holder really want honest talk when in February he called
for "frank conversations" about race? "Honest" talk, as the MSM and much of the chattering Left defines
it, consists of slamming most whites as racist. ...[Jimmy] Carter has concluded that Obama critics are
Steele blasts Carter for comment.
RNC Chairman Michael Steele, the Republican Party's most prominent African American official, has issued a press
release criticizing former President Jimmy Carter for arguing that much of the opposition that President
Obama is facing is due to race.
Michael Steele is the Republican Party's most prominent official, period, since he is the chairman.
Jimmy Carter now has done to his ex-presidency what he did to his presidency, which is to say that he has,
through his incessant moral preening, converted mere incompetence into something more unseemly. Mr. Carter
thunders that those who oppose President Obama's plans to nationalize the health-care industry, and those who
oppose other elements of the president's agenda, are doing so for reasons of racism.
Carter plays the race card. Jimmy Carter has made an outrageous, unfounded and potentially
inflammatory remark about race. He has claimed that a great proportion of the vitriolic opposition to
President Obama's health reforms and spending plans are actually motivated by racial hatred: that this
president is being attacked not for his policies but for his colour. He offers no evidence for this
extraordinary assertion presumably because there is none.
The Liberals' Breakdown.
According to Jimmy Carter's libel against opponents of Barack Obama, "an overwhelming portion of the intensely
demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is black man." This
reminds us once again of what a pathetic and mean-spirited figure Mr. Carter has become.
Carter and the Elvis Factor. Jimmy Carter strikes again! The former President is not
content having left office with high inflation, high interest rates and high unemployment. Nor is he
content with having signed into law the Community Reinvestment Act — strengthened by President
Bill Clinton — which played a major roll in the eventual housing market meltdown.
Carter and the Panama Canal: A
liberal Democratic president has his heart set on pushing through a proposal strongly unpopular with most
Americans. Enjoying substantial Democratic majorities in both the House and the Senate, he intends to
win. So it was in September, 1977, when Jimmy Carter signed the Panama Canal treaties to relinquish United
States control. An Associated Press opinion poll conducted that month found that only 29 percent of
Americans favored the pact. A solid 50 percent opposed it and 21 percent expressed no opinion.
Hamas and Mr. Carter. Former
President Jimmy Carter said this week that he plans to ask the Obama administration to take Hamas off the U.S. list of
terrorist organizations. This prompts the question, what part of the word "terrorist" doesn't Mr. Carter understand?
Fidel, &c. I have written a fair amount about Fidel Castro, over the years, and a fair amount
about Jimmy Carter, too. Perhaps readers are sick of hearing about those men. Sometimes I get sick
of writing about them. But let me do so here, briefly: for the two men have come together, again.
The Anti-American President. Pre-Obama, Jimmy
Carter has long been reviled as the worst president in American history. Carter's bungling of the presidency was more
than his manifest inadequacy. Carter brazenly supported America's most dangerous enemies; enabling the rise of the
Islamofacist thugocracy in Iran. Islamic terrorism, including 9/11, can be tracked back in a straight line back to
Carter. The Shah of Iran was a friend of the United States. Indeed, he was a flawed leader, prone to despotism
but a real pussycat compared to the current Iranian thugocracy. Until former president Jimmy Carter took office, the
United States and Iran maintained a stable relationship. Carter couldn't abandon the Shah fast enough.
Should we call him Jimmy
Obama? Carter's paralysis as Soviet power expanded from Somalia to Ethiopia, and then to
Afghanistan, his feckless make-nice attempt to cajole the West Europeans to respond to Soviet missile
deployments, his abandonment of the shah and subsequent appeasement of Khomeini (his ambassador to the
UN, Andrew Young, described the Iranian fascist leader as "some kind of saint"), greatly encouraged our
enemies, all over the world.
Jimmy Carter and the Camp David Myth.
The truth is that Mr. Carter never wanted an Egyptian-Israeli agreement, fought hard against it, and only agreed to go
along with the process when it became clear that the rest of his foreign policy was in a shambles and he desperately
needed to log a success.
Obama's charm offensive and the global jihad. In a
commencement address at Notre Dame, he declared that Americans had shed their "inordinate fear of communism."
In the months that followed, Carter slashed the defense budget, scrapped the B-1 bomber, welcomed the
Sandinista coup in Nicaragua, and launched diplomatic relations with Cuba's dictator, Fidel Castro. It
wasn't until the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979 that Carter finally woke up to his naiveté.
Carter: Hamas can be
trusted. Hamas can be trusted, former US President Jimmy Carter said Monday [1/26/2009], in an
interview on NBC's 'Today' show. Carter spoke with NBC's Meredith Vieira about his perspective on the
Middle East conflict, and his new book, "We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land."
delusions. Jimmy Carter now has the gall to claim on The Daily Show that he, not Richard
Nixon, opened up China. Is there any diplomatic accomplishment he will not claim credit for?
Jimmy Carter's myopia:
It appears that Jimmy Carter is revising history. The Benjamin Netanyahu I know was attending college
during the Camp David meetings. In fact, when I recommended him to Begin for a government job, the prime
minister did not even know who Benjamin was. I have no idea how Carter was so aware of Benjamin
Netanyahu's political ideology; he was selling furniture to help fund his schooling.
Age And Experience: Carter's
Catastrophes. [Jimmy Carter] came to power in the aftermath of the Vietnam War and the resignation
of President Nixon. The public wanted change and someone new, and Carter was an ambitious, hands-on
politician who promised better days. As good as his intentions were, however, the things he tried were
not successful. In fact, he created far more serious problems than he ever solved.
Scaring Us to Death.
Recall that during President Carter's last year in office in 1980 what was called the "misery index", which was
defined as the sum of the inflation and unemployment rates, was about 22 percent: inflation averaged
14 percent; unemployment was 7.5 percent. Today's inflation just became 5 percent, having
been between 1 and 3 percent for a decade, and unemployment is 6.1.
I'm Voting for John McCain: [Scroll down slowly] I bet some of you think I've already
forgotten about Jimmy Carter. I only wish. To my way of thinking, Carter was undeniably the worst
president. Among other things, he saddled America with 21% inflation and 12% unemployment. He
also turned his back on the Shah of Iran, thus opening the door to the Ayatollah Khomeini and thirty years
of world-wide Islamic terrorism. Then, not one to rest on his laurels, Carter became the worst
ex-president in American history .
Can America Afford
Another Jimmy Carter? When former President Carter took office in 1977, the Shah of Iran was
a staunch ally of the United States, a mainstay in our standoff with the Soviet Union, thwarting the dream
held since the time of the czars of pushing south toward the warm waters of the Persian Gulf. Former
president Carter's human rights deal, gave rise to one of the worst rights violators in history —
the Ayatollah Khomeini. Thanks to Jimmy and company, Khomeini's successors are preparing for nuclear
war with Israel and the West.
State Department: Carter Meeting With
Terrorists Not 'in the Interest of Peace'. Former President Jimmy Carter's upcoming meeting with
senior officials of the Palestinian terror group Hamas is not "in the interest of peace," according to State
Department spokesman Sean McCormack. FOX News confirmed on Thursday [4/10/2008] that
Carter will travel to Syria next week for an unprecedented meeting with the senior leadership
Carter's foolish journey:
Former President Jimmy Carter is reported to have scheduled a meeting with Khaled Mashaal, the political leader of
Hamas. Over the years, Mashaal has claimed responsibility for many of Hamas' suicide bomb attacks in Israel. He
leads an organization that praised as "heroic" Palestinian terrorists who crossed into Israel and killed two civilians at a
fuel depot on Wednesday [4/9/2008]. Hamas allows — or instigates — the continuing barrage of
rockets into Israel, taking every opportunity to disrupt peace negotiations.
This: Carter and Hamas. Given Carter's record in conducting such conversations with Hamas —
and with a long list of dictators over the past three decades, including Kim Il Sung, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez,
Slobodan Milosevic and many, many more — it is fairly safe to expect little good to emerge from that
cools to visit from Carter. Former President Jimmy Carter brokered the first Israeli-Arab peace
deal, but he's getting a cool reception in Israel during his latest visit to the Mideast. Israeli
leaders are shunning the globe-trotting peacemaker for planning to meet with the head of Israel's archenemy
Hamas, Khaled Mashaal, and comparing the Jewish state's policies to apartheid.
Carter 'Quite at Ease' About Hamas
Meeting. Former President Jimmy Carter said he feels "quite at ease" about meeting leaders of
the genocidal Hamas terror group, because the organization is "essential to a future peace with Israel."
Carter, interviewed Saturday for ABC News' "This Week," also said he would oppose a U.S. Olympic boycott and
hopes all countries will join in the Beijing games.
Is Jimmy Carter in Violation of
the Logan Act? The Logan Act was enacted in 1799. The origins of this law lie in the
activities of Dr. George Logan, a Quaker pacifist doctor who tried to lessen tensions between the French
Revolutionary government in Paris and the Federalists then leading the nascent American Republic, who tilted
Carter: Arafat fought for just
causes. The former American president, who is on a week-long tour of the region, also met with
Nasr a-Din Shaar, Hamas' deputy prime minister and education minister in Ismail Haniyeh's government.
The two embraced and kissed each other warmly.
Carter Lays a Wreath at Arafat's Tomb. Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter laid a wreath of red
roses at the grave of Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat during a visit to the West
Bank City of Ramallah on Tuesday [4/15/2008].
Jimmy Carter Embraces Hamas
Official. Former President Jimmy Carter embraced a leading Hamas figure Tuesday, according to
participants in a meeting that infuriated Israeli officials already upset by Carter's freelance Mideast peace
mission. Carter also laid a wreath at the grave of Yasser Arafat, whom the Bush administration and many
Israelis blame for the breakdown of peace talks seven years ago and the violence that followed.
Hamas' Useful Idiot: When former
president Jimmy Carter meets with terrorist Hamas leader Khaled Mashall this Friday [4/18/2008] in Damascus he
will apparently violate two federal laws. His eager defiance of the law threatens Americans at home and
our troops abroad.
Jimmy Carter: Emissary of Evil.
Jimmy Carter is an evil man. It is painful to label a past president of the United States as a force for
darkness. But it is dangerous to let a man like Jimmy Carter stalk around the globe cloaked in the garb
of American royalty, planting the seeds of Western civilization's destruction.
N.C. congresswoman wants Carter's passport
revoked. North Carolina's Rep. Sue Myrick wants America to "wake up" and stop allowing terrorism
to proliferate — and if that means revoking the passport of a former U.S. president or examining
the preaching of prison chaplains, that's what she's prepared to do.
Damage of Jimmy Carter: There he goes again! Former President Jimmy Carter, acting out his
stubborn, self-righteous moralism and his stunning vanity, persists in legitimizing terrorism. How else
can the Middle East see Carter's meeting in Syria with no less than the terrorist mastermind Khaled Mashaal,
the leader of Hamas?
Jimmy Carter meets
Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal in Syria. Jimmy Carter, the former US President who brokered Israel's
first peace accord with an Arab state in 1979, held a controversial meeting yesterday [4/18/2008] with the
exiled leader of Hamas, the Islamist movement whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel.
Jimmy Carter's excellent adventure:
So many terrorists, so little time. It was everything a Palestinian terrorist could hope for:
a wreath laid on Arafat's tomb, wet kisses from a former US, and a high profile meeting with leaders of Hamas
that flew in the face of US and European policy. But that didn't faze Jimmy Carter, who relished the
controversy, enjoyed the rough-cheeked nuzzles, and gave the top terrorist organizations the dubious legitimacy
of a president who has joined the actively anti-Israel club.
Gaza blockade is an atrocity. Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip is an "atrocity," former US
president Jimmy Carter said after meeting with Hamas officials in Cairo. Carter also said he had asked
Hamas officials to stop rocket attacks into Israel and defended his controversial meetings with the Palestinian
terrorist group, saying it was necessary to talk to all parties to achieve peace.
Ego Trip: Carter's current sojourn in personal diplomacy is just his most recent foreign foray in
post-presidential folly since being voted out of office in Ronald Reagan's 1980 landslide. During his
global quest for relevance, he rarely missed an opportunity to denigrate our country's interests, helping him
to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002. But this week's expedition to Jerusalem, the West Bank, Egypt,
Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia may prove to be the most damaging excursion yet.
Makes Me Sick. [It is] clear that these disastrous meetings aren't a question of misunderstood
or overlooked facts, or a matter of persuasion based on such facts. They come down to a stark choice
between evil and good: to meet with Hamas, or not to meet with Hamas; to lend legitimacy to a terror
group, or to shun it; to degrade the office of the presidency, or to honor it. Jimmy Carter has made
all the wrong choices.
Jimmy Carter: American Disgrace.
Carter, after the pounding he took in 1980 decided that America wasn't good enough to have him. He turned against the
democracy that gave him four years as President, after all if we didn't see the wisdom in reelecting him, if a democracy
turned him down, then democracy itself must go. Democracy, if it rejected Jimmy Carter, must be evil. If it is
evil then he will support the enemies of democracy. Carter hasn't found a dictator, thug, or terrorist, that he
hasn't wanted to embrace and validate.
Rice: U.S. Warned Carter Not to Talk to
Hamas. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Tuesday [4/22/2008] the Bush administration
explicitly warned former President Jimmy Carter against meeting with members of Hamas, the Palestinian faction
that controls the Gaza Strip and which is regarded by the U.S. as a terror group. Rice, attending a
regional meeting on Iraq's security and future, contradicted Carter's assertions that he never got a clear
signal from the State Department.
Ex-President Jimmy Carter thinks Hamas is ready to accept Israel's existence and to "live as a neighbor next
door in peace." Has there ever been a former U.S. leader so deluded about historical reality?
Democrats' Jimmy Carter Problem: So much for Jimmy Carter's triumphal peace mission in the
Middle East. Like everything else he has done on foreign policy, the world's biggest tool for jihad
propaganda created yet another bloody mess.
Jimmy Carter Disgraced
For Many Reasons. When it came time to judge Jimmy Carter's presidency, Americans voters thundered:
Carter, receiving 40% of the popular vote, carrying six states. With sound reasons: The prime rate
had soared to 20%, inflation to 12.5% and unemployment to 7.5%. More dismal than Carter's
domestic failures is the continuing damage his blunders did to international security.
The Sad End
of Jimmy Carter: The problem is not that he is, or is not, talking to the Syrians —
everyone does it to some degree. It isn't that he went to Damascus to meet with the exiled head of
Hamas — everyone, including the Israelis, will one day have to do that too, in accordance with
that old rule which says that in the end it is with your enemies not your friends that you have to come
to an understanding and make peace. No. The problem is how Jimmy Carter went about it.
The Lust in Jimmy
Carter's Heart: Jimmy Carter's recent negotiations with the terrorist group Hamas have been
called a bad idea, ill-conceived, counterproductive, self-aggrandizing, and naïve. However, what if the
meeting was not at all naïve, but a well-conceived execution of an unstated plan? What would a
former U.S. president do if he really lusted in his heart for the complete destruction of the Jewish state?
Jimmy Carter: A National Embarrassment. It
would be easy to blame the 83-year-old former one-term president's frequent excursions into irrational behavior on senility
were it not for the fact that he appears to have been senile most of his public life. Any recitation of his frequent
excursions into his personal Land of Oz where the good guys are bad and the bad guys are good sounds like a litany of
Carter-esque fantasies. His onetime White House Chief of Staff, Hamilton Jordan, once spoke about what he called
Carter's "weirdness factor."
Carter: Weak Then, an Embarrassment Now. Not only is Carter in the news over his
anti-Israel, pro-Islamist screed, but he and Bill Clinton have decided to create a broad and "inclusive"
Baptist movement to overcome what they see as a negative image of Baptists. … Carter and Clinton
are the perfect pair for subverting Baptists because both of them have difficulty telling the
truth. The world would be better off if both of them kept their mouths shut, but this is
unlikely to happen.
of Jimmy Carter: The book marks Carter's further disgraceful descent from ineffectual president
and international do-gooder to apologist for the worst Arab tendencies. … Carter always finds a way to
point a finger at Israel. In doing so, Carter thinks he is providing an extraordinary public service.
Jimmy Carter: Jew-Hater,
Genocide-Enabler, Liar. Even as Islamic Hitlerites gather in Iran to deny the first Holocaust of
the Jews and to plot the second, former president Jimmy Carter tours America with a new book that describes Jews
as racists and oppressors, and suggests they are also a conspiratorial mafia that intimidates "critics," controls
America's media and war policy, and are therefore also the source of Islamic terrorism and the Arabs' genocidal
campaign to eliminate them from the map of the Middle East. In other words, Americans beware of the Jew
in your midst.
Carter, The Muslims and Other Catastrophes. For me, personally, the worst thing
about Carter's longtime affection for the world's worst tyrants, ranging from Yasser Arafat to
Castro, Chavez and Ahmadinejad, is that it serves as a constant reminder — and source
of endless embarrassment — that I actually voted for this anti-Semitic clodhopper!
Brave Jimmy Carter? Having
scolded the Western world for its "inordinate fear of communism," Jimmy Carter is now, 30 years later,
attempting to legitimize the shameful Zionism Equals Racism resolution passed and later repealed by the United
Nations. The man has a seemingly unerring instinct for error. "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid"
is touted (by Carter himself) as an evenhanded analysis of the Israeli/Arab conflict — but one need
go no further than the title to suspect otherwise.
Castro's friend. We've
discussed Jimmy Carter's legacy of friendship and warm support for the world's dictators many times already,
notably on Venezuela, but a return to Carter's Cuba legacy may be an even worse experience, because of an
unmistakable whiff of treason.
Group Slams Carter Over 'Apartheid' Analogy. A row between American Jewish leaders and former
President Jimmy Carter over his attempts to link Israel with apartheid deepened Tuesday [12/19/2006], when a
leading Jewish group called for an apology, decrying the role Carter has taken "with regard to Israel and
won't Carter debate his book? You can always tell when a public figure has written an indefensible
book: when he refuses to debate it in the court of public opinion. And you can always tell when he's
a hypocrite to boot: when he says he wrote a book in order to stimulate a debate, and then he refuses to
participate in any such debate. I'm talking about former president Jimmy Carter and his new book "Palestine
Peace Not Apartheid."
Carter: Sympathy for the
devil. Want to know where the Democratic Party stands and where America would be under their
leadership? Just ask Jimmy Carter. Carter is certainly not bashful about bashing the United
States, even on foreign soil or to the foreign press. He sat for an interview with Der Spiegel recently
and fired with both barrels at President Bush, "fundamentalist" Christians and Israel. But do Carter's
views represent those of the Democratic Party? Well, he sure seems to think so.
Jimmy Carter please just go away? How is it that Jimmy Carter, that sanctimonious phony who was
a disaster during his four years in the White House and a disgrace in the quarter of a century since, can pass
himself off as equal parts statesman and saint? While most of us wished that he would simply slink back
to his peanut farm after Ronald Reagan [defeated him] in '80, we hadn't realized how starved he was for
Reasons Democrats Are Weak On Defense And Can't Be Trusted To Govern In Wartime. Today's
Democrats are nothing like Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Kennedy, who with courage and decisive action kept
on top of their jobs and aggressively confronted one national defense crisis after another. Jimmy
Carter, elected during the Cold War with the Soviet Union, and (1) believing Americans had an inordinate
fear of communism, (2) lifted U.S. citizens' travel bans to Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam and Cambodia and
(3) pardoned draft evaders. President Carter (4) also stopped B-1 bomber production, (5) gave away
our strategically located Panama Canal and (6) made human rights the central focus of his foreign policy.
the book, read the column. In a column published in last week's Boston Globe, former US president
Jimmy Carter complained that ever since his book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid" came out, he has been
called "a liar, plagiarist, anti-Semite, racist, bigot, ignorant, etc." I have not read the book.
But the column alone proves that some of those epithets are justified.
true legacy is a trail of blood. For decades, journalists and celebrities have showered Cuba's
despot with praise, extolling his virtues so extravagantly at times that if sycophancy were an Olympic sport,
they would have walked off with the gold. Norman Mailer, for example, proclaimed him "the first and
greatest hero to appear in the world since the Second World War."
In Cuba it is illegal to change jobs, to change houses, to travel abroad, and to read
books or magazines without the express approval of the state. It is against the law for more than three
Cubans to meet without permission. Neighborhood Watch programs do not look out for criminals. Instead,
they monitor their fellow citizens — keeping track of neighbors' comings and goings, who visits them, and
what radio stations they listen to. The sense of community and the simple trust between human beings
Carter's Li'l Ol' Stink Tank. Jimmy Carter says he's just being fair-minded by continuously
condemning Israel. Meanwhile, his Carter Center draws ever more money from anti-Israel sources.
Follow the money. The ex-president's irritating opinions on Mideast matters are one thing. But
the funding of his Atlanta think tank by big-money, state-linked Arab sources is quite
another — and points to a conflict of interest.
Adviser to Jimmy Carter resigns in dispute
over book on Palestinians and apartheid. An adviser to former President Jimmy Carter and onetime
executive director of the Carter Center has publicly parted ways with his former boss, citing concerns with the
accuracy and integrity of Carter's latest book, "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid." … In a two-page letter
explaining his action, [Kenneth] Stein called the book "replete with factual errors, copied materials not
cited, superficialities, glaring omissions and simply invented segments."
Carter's book are questioned. Harsh allegations over President Carter's new book on Israel and
the Palestinians came into sharper focus Thursday [12/7/2006] when a former top aide to Carter said the book
appeared to contain maps that were "unusually similar" to those in an earlier book.
Carter's book prompts more
resignations. Fourteen members of an advisory board to Jimmy Carter's human rights organization
resigned on Thursday [1/11/2007] to protest his new book, which has been attacked as unfairly critical of
Israel and riddled with inaccuracies.
The same story appeared in the
NY Times, but with no mention that the people who resigned were all Jewish: Carter
Center Advisers Quit to Protest Book. Fourteen of the city's business and civic leaders resigned
from the Carter Center's advisory board on Thursday to protest former President Jimmy Carter's recent criticisms
of Israel and American Jewish political power.
for Terror. How did this man ever become president of the United States? He's gone from
failed president to friend of left-wing tyrants and global scold of anything that represents America's
legitimate interests. Now, in his bid to demonize Israel (recall that he secretly gave PR and political
advice to Yasser Arafat), Carter has turned mythmaker — distorting history and misrepresenting facts,
when he isn't making them up altogether.
America had enough of
Jimmy Carter, now if he would just go away. "When I studied history in college we
were taught that James Buchanan was the worst president of the United States and we will not see
the likes of him again; but no-one could have foreseen Jimmy Carter." So wrote columnist
Joseph Alsop. No matter how hard the left tries, facts are facts and Carter remains the
most inept president of the post-war period.
Jimmy Carter's Trail of
Disaster: It seems that almost wherever he goes and whatever positions he pushes,
Jimmy Carter leaves a wake of devastation and disaster.
Outrage: Jimmy Carter is the worst. The absolute worst. He's more dangerous than most
evil types because he runs around with a smile and looks like a well-intentioned peanut farmer.
Ex-President. It is sad that a President whose cardinal accomplishment was a peace accord
between Israel and one of its neighbors should have devolved into such a seething enemy of Israel. It
will be sadder still if this same man, whose other achievement was to elevate the cause of human rights,
ends his career by helping to make anti-Semitism acceptable once again in American discourse. There
is little doubt, in sum, that the electorate was right in 1980 when it judged Carter to be among our worst
Presidents. It is even more certain that history will judge him to have been our very worst ex-President.
Academic Separation and
Jimmy Carter: Given that these bishops and clergy believe wholeheartedly that the academic center
of a president linked with a Methodist school [SMU] is inappropriate because of that president's actions, when
will these bishops and clergy circulate and/or support a similar petition urging Emory University to cease its
relationship with the Carter Center?
Center OK, But Bush Library 'Heresy?' While United Methodist leaders wrangle over whether a
church-owned university should host George W. Bush's presidential library, another school from the
same denomination houses a center dedicated to former President Jimmy Carter, with no similar controversy.
The apparent discrepancy has prompted a conservative group to ask: "Is affiliation with the current
administration the only 'heresy' unacceptable to liberal bishops and clerics?"
Flashback... The Panama Canal Giveaway:
It was a terrible mistake for President Jimmy Carter and the U.S. Senate to give away our Panama Canal in 1978,
and the majority of the American people knew it was wrong. America had paid for this most expensive piece
of real estate four times: we paid Panama for sovereignty "in perpetuity," we bought the Zone again from
Columbia, we paid the French Canal Company for its assets, and we bought the deeds from the private property
owners, and then we built the Canal with our ingenuity and investment.
Carter blasts Bush on his global impact.
Former President Carter says President Bush's administration is "the worst in history" in international relations,
taking aim at the White House's policy of pre-emptive war and its Middle East diplomacy. The criticism
from Carter, which a biographer says is unprecedented for the 39th president, also took aim at Bush's
environmental policies and the administration's "quite disturbing" faith-based initiative funding.
The Editor says...
President Carter isn't exactly a master of international relations himself. He is the president who sat
paralyzed with timid indecision while more than fifty Americans were held hostage in Iran for over a year.
Carter's attack worth
peanuts. Looking at Carter's record, he is in no moral position to pass judgment. Carter
is the president who criticized Ronald Reagan's Cold War strategy, which would eventually lead to the
collapse of Soviet communism. If Carter had been around in the 1980s instead of Reagan, it is conceivable
the U.S.S.R. would still exist and countries like Ukraine and Latvia would be under Soviet control.
Peanut Envy: Almost always, when former President
Jimmy Carter opens his big, smug mouth, he has already made the psychological mistake that is going to reduce
his words to absurdity. When he told the press last week that the Bush administration had aroused
antipathy around the world, he might have been uttering no more than a banality. But no, he had to
try to invest it with a special signature flourish.
Need To Reprimand Carter — Now. As if we haven't had enough sour grapes from Carter, this
weekend he took his level of outrageous behavior to an all-time high. Speaking to a reporter from Arkansas, Carter
labeled the Bush administration the "worst in history," and criticized everything from Bush's foreign policy to
his privatization approach with social welfare.
Has Jimmy Carter gone off the deep end? He's now scolding the West for refusing to bankroll Hamas
terrorists who've just seized power at gunpoint in Gaza. It's a new low in coddling terrorism.
Jimmy, Bill, and Herb:
For a long time after [President] Carter headed back to Plains, Georgia, after a single frustration-laden term, I often thought that
he was a better ex-President than he was a President. But frankly, I liked Habitat for Humanity Jimmy much better than

As a former officer in the US Navy, Carter
should know, "Loose lips sink ships." Carter
says Israel has at least 150 atomic weapons. Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has said Israel
holds at least 150 nuclear weapons, the first time a U.S. president has publicly acknowledged the Jewish state's
atomic arsenal. Asked at a news conference at Wales's Hay literary festival on Sunday how a future U.S.
president should deal with the Iranian nuclear threat, Carter put the risk in context by listing atomic weapons
Revoke Jimmy Carter's Security Clearance.
One of the perks that former presidents receive, if they choose to utilize it, is a daily security briefing from the CIA. This
is how Jimmy Carter came to know (or at least claim) that Israel has 150 nuclear weapons, considering the fact that the Israeli
government has pursued a policy of deliberate ambiguity about its nuclear weapon capability.
More mush from the wimp.
Former president Jimmy Carter has apologized to Jews for actions he acknowledged have stigmatized Israel. ... Cynics
have suggested that Carter's apparent change of heart has something to do with the fact that his grandson,
Jason Carter, is seriously consideing a run for Georgia's state Senate from the district representing
suburban DeKalb County. The district includes an area around Emory University that has a substantial
I Do Not Forgive You, Jimmy Carter.
[Scroll down] My reasoning is that Carter has spoken only with the prospect that his grandson, Jason,
is anticipated to run for public office in Georgia in a congressional district with what is reported as "a
vocal Jewish population." It's politics. ... Carter's apology is cosmetic. It is a Band-aid that
ignores Israel's claim to statehood and sovereignty.
Carter's 'Built a Legacy That Few, If Any, American Ex-Presidents Can Match'. Before buying into
this effort to rehabilitate the reputation of — until Barack Obama came along — the worst
president in many decades, we may want to reflect on Carter's post-presidency. The late New York Democratic
Senator Patrick Moynihan had Carter's number in 1980: "Being unable to distinguish between our friends and
our enemies, Carter has adopted our enemies' view of the world." When the first President Bush asked for
United Nations action in the Persian Gulf, Carter wrote to world leaders trying to block it.
A Surreal Presidency.
[Scroll down] Jimmy Carter, as we all know, was (and is) the archetypal wimp who never met a theocrat he
didn't like and gave us the Iran we know today while eventually selling out to the Saudis, the principal funders
of his misnamed Peace Center. Carter was conceivably the worst president in POTUS history until the
present incumbent appeared to bring the highest office in the land into turmoil and disrepute.

Carter's Hypocritical Media Bashing Tour Continues. Former President Jimmy Carter didn't start out bashing
the media, as he often does today. In fact, prior to the election of Barack Obama, and after the media's
early-sixties love affair with all things Kennedy, it was Jimmy Carter's turn to be the media's annointed one.
