Skip to comments."The US and Israel Stand Alone" [Carter barf alert]

Former US president Jimmy Carter speaks with DER SPIEGEL about the danger posed to American values by George W. Bush, the difficult situation in the Middle East and Cuba's ailing Fidel Castro.
SPIEGEL: Mr. Carter, in your new book you write that only the American people can ensure that the US government returns to the country's old moral principles. Are you suggesting that the current US administration of George W. Bush of acting immorally?
Carter: There's no doubt that this administration has made a radical and unpressured departure from the basic policies of all previous administrations including those of both Republican and Democratic presidents.
SPIEGEL: For example?
Carter: Under all of its predecessors there was a commitment to peace instead of preemptive war. Our country always had a policy of not going to war unless our own security was directly threatened and now we have a new policy of going to war on a preemptive basis. Another very serious departure from past policies is the separation of church and state, which I describe in the book. This has been a policy since the time of Thomas Jefferson and my own religious beliefs are compatible with this. The other principle that I described in the book is basic justice. We've never had an administration before that so overtly and clearly and consistently passed tax reform bills that were uniquely targeted to benefit the richest people in our country at the expense or the detriment of the working families of America.

Thought we'd seen the last of this loser but his cracker son wins the NV primary. Whodda thunk?
Yes...I quaked in my bomb shelter over the possibility of KOSOVO attacking us.
Some people thought that the damage he wanted to do this country would have ended on 1-20-81. Not even close. He keeps on going and going.
Gee who was on your said against Iran Jimmy? NO ONE, mean while NATO has taken over the mission in Afganistan, 25 some countries have toops in Iraq and France is taking the lead on Lebanon.
Frankly the US and Israel would be better OFF alone with out the dead weight of the "Intenational Community" dragging down their operational freedom
Now really, who gives two toots in a bucket what Jimmy Carter thinks about anything?
He should stick to peanuts and building houses for poor folk.
15: The word of the LORD came to me:
16: "Son of man, take a stick and write on it, `For Judah, and the children of Israel associated with him'; then take another stick and write upon it, `For Joseph (the stick of E'phraim) and all the house of Israel associated with him';
17: and join them together into one stick, that they may become one in your hand.
18: And when your people say to you, `Will you not show us what you mean by these?'
19: say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am about to take the stick of Joseph (which is in the hand of E'phraim) and the tribes of Israel associated with him; and I will join with it the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, that they may be one in my hand.
20: When the sticks on which you write are in your hand before their eyes,
21: then say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I will take the people of Israel from the nations among which they have gone, and will gather them from all sides, and bring them to their own land;
22: and I will make them one nation in the land, upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; and they shall be no longer two nations, and no longer divided into two kingdoms.
23: They shall not defile themselves any more with their idols and their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions; but I will save them from all the backslidings in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them; and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
24: "My servant David shall be king over them; and they shall all have one shepherd. They shall follow my ordinances and be careful to observe my statutes.
25: They shall dwell in the land where your fathers dwelt that I gave to my servant Jacob; they and their children and their children's children shall dwell there for ever; and David my servant shall be their prince for ever.
26: I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will bless them and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27: My dwelling place shall be with them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28: Then the nations will know that I the LORD sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary is in the midst of them for evermore."
Damn straight, and proud of it.
The headline could just as easily have read: 1942: The US and Britian Stand Alone
Jimmy, you're a liar. Does your "faith" say anything about that?
The treaty was done almost without any input from you; you were brought in to put US $$$ into the pot.
Dirty, filthy, decrepit, disgusting, dictator-loving, US-hating, Ayatollah-empowering liar.
So what if we are standing alone? Doing what is right is often unpopular.
Hey Jimmah, wake up and look around, islamic fascists are killing a lot of people and they laugh at anyone trying to negotiate.
Not sure what's worse: Mr. Peanut or this Goebbels-wannabe interviewer.
who the hell actually BUYS books by Carter?
do liberals buy them? are they big sellers?
Thanks Peanut Boy!
Amnesty for draft dodgers and deserters (his simpleton son Jack, running as a Dem for Senate in Nevada, was eligible); record inflation; high unemployment; enormous lines to get a gallon of gas; the Iran "rescue" fiasco called Desert One; high double-digit interest rates; the invasion of Afghanistan; "the inordinate fear of communism"; idiot babbling about energy "crisis". One piece of gross incompetence after another; giving us the WORST president of our lifetimes. Thos who can't, TEACH.
Jack Carter was effectively unopposed, and 12% of Dems voted for "None of the Above."
Have seen them appear quickly on a Target's close out end cap.
Jimmy Carter was probably a functional nuclear submarine engineering officer, and that was the last thing he did that was noteworthy.
Jimmy Carter - what a maroon!
And the pictures with the green teeth!!! My God!
1) Allowing Khomeini [hawk, spit] to depose the Shah, thereby ushering in the era of Islamic "republics";
2) His utterly disasterous handling of the Iran hostage crisis; and
3) Destroying the dignity of the Presidency by refusing to STFU as a former President.
When is this waste of protoplasm going to stop stealing our oxygen?
"Jimmy Carter will be remembered for d things:"
Uh, 3 things.
Now that was a red state America--when are we gonna see the like of that again? Jimmy better go back to his plantation in Plains and give himself a rubdown with some peanut oil.
When I was in the news biz in Washington, DC, I used to call Billy from time to time at his gas station down in Americus, GA. He was always very nice. Quite a stutterer, though.
Remember "Billy Beer"?
Finish the thought you old goat - "WHEN our own security is threatened!!"
What a moron.
How mortifying it is to see my own MD part of the miniscule portion that went for CARTER. :-(
"This has been a policy since the time of Thomas Jefferson"
The "time of Jefferson" being what? His Presidency?
Nevermind even Jefferson didn't mean "never the twain shall meet" in an infamous letter (to a church, which incidentally was getting assurance that churches would not be forced to do what the GOV wants!).
When he wrote "separation of church & state", he MEANT "NON-ESTABLISHMENT OF A PARTICULAR REGLIGION".
Which is what's written in the Constitution.
Which was BEFORE Jefferson's presidency (and Jefferson was NOT present for creating the same). Don't give him so much credit!
Nnnaaaah! Israel didn't EXIST before 1948, don't you know that? The UN put it there, and Moslems created Jerusalem centuries ago!
Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy, still sufering from that constant core-dump of corrupted memory.....
Even the Jews didn't establish Jerusalem. It was before David's time known as Jebus, and the residents were Jebusites until David conquered them and took the city for his new capital (His old capital was Hebron) because of its strategic position..............
"Thought we'd seen the last of this loser but his cracker son wins the NV primary. Whodda thunk?"
His cracker son has zero chance against Ensign. Jack was hand picked by Reid I am sure, and the Dems follow Reid like lemmings.
I think that was LBJ, not Carter.
Actually, Clark was LBJ's AG.
Carter's was Griffin Bell (admittedly, a name of towering stature in legal annals, so much so that I had to go to Google to find him)....
God, this is disgusting. Having to stand up for Jimmy Carter! But the truth is the truth, so here goes.
Ramsey Clark was AG for LBJ.
Never, ever, make me do that again.
Jimmy Carter is a subhuman POS who should burn in hell for what he did to this country (and I daresay the rest of the world). He is the most miserable failure of a leader in US (and possibly world) history. Why anybody of any political leaning would continue to listen to his warmed-over bullsh!t is beyond me.
I have one word for this jackhole:
If Mr. Peanut had gone to war when we were attacked, an attack on an embassy being the same as an attack on the country, there would be no Iran problem today.
I will never forget that worthless piece of $@#((* was AG for Lyndon Johnson and not Jimmy Carter.
How old is that old s.o.b. (Clark)? He has been slithering around far too long.
Well, you're correct about that. I guess that's so far back we don't have any feeling for it (maybe the Pali's don't, either).
In any case, it's another good lesson that "conquering" ALWAYS happens and has happened to every (just about) population, regardless of race, religion, size, anything. To try to rectify everything back to its original point would be nothing short of ludicrous. So whining about ancient "siezures" really is moot, esp. when the whiner's ancestors probably also "seized" it from someone ELSE.
You got it.
It's the quality of one's friends that count, not the quantity.
As Patton once said, "I'd rather have a German division in front of me, than a French one behind me..."
