    Ron Paul revels in the fact that he is the presidential candidate of America's small donors, receiving more contributions under $200 than any other Republican seeking the White House in 2012. But, like every other GOP presidential contender, he also has a mega-millionaire "sugar daddy" helping to fund a super PAC that is promoting Paul's candidacy. Yet while Newt Gingrich underwriter Sheldon Adelson and Rick Santorum super-supporter Foster Friess have shared the campaign stage - and the national political spotlight - with their candidates, Paul's benefactor, San Francisco entrepreneur Peter Thiel, has never met the Texas congressman he's aiding.

    It was September 1986, and Annabel Hill, 66, was facing an auction where she would lose the farm that had been in her family for five generations. Hill’s husband, Lenard, had committed suicide eight months earlier, 20 minutes before a scheduled auction, in a last-ditch attempt to save his property with life insurance money. The life insurance money wasn’t enough, covering only $175,000 of debts than ran in excess of $300,000, from two years of a drought that Hill said had ruined their livelihood. Even when several hundred acres of the 1,300-acre Waynesboro, Georgia, farm were sold, the now-widowed Annabel...

    Still reeling from a disaster it created at a Colorado gold mine, the EPA has so far avoided criticism for a similar toxic waste spill in Georgia. In Greensboro, EPA-funded contractors grading a toxic 19th-century cotton mill site struck a water main, sending the deadly sediment into a nearby creek. Though that accident took place five months ago, the hazard continues ... The sediment flows carry dangerous mercury, lead, arsenic and chromium downstream to the Lake Oconee and then to Oconee River — home to many federally and state protected species. Lead in the soil is 20,000 times higher than...

In excruciating pain, he had a single message for the attackers: “Forgive them Father, they know not what they have done.” Michael Lash’s recitation of Luke 23:34 was related by his wife, Whitney Lash, who posted an update of her husband’s condition on a GoFundMe page launched by friends trying to raise a little help for the family.

    In 1913, Frank was convicted of murdering 13-year-old Mary Phagan, who worked in his Atlanta factory. The case, charged with race, religion, sex and class, exploded in a national media frenzy. When Georgia's governor commuted Frank's death sentence, citizens took matters in their own hands. The case established the Anti-Defamation League as the country's most outspoken opponent of anti-Semitism. It also fueled the rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan. Until ADL lawyers pressed officials to posthumously pardon Frank in the 1980s, the case was hushed in Atlanta's synagogues, the homes of Old Marietta, and among Phagan's descendants.

Galanes pointed out that both Carter and Woodson went “door to door” as Christian missionaries when they were younger. Woodson went as a Jehovah’s Witness, but no longer practices. Galanes understood. “They’re not so hot on gay and lesbian issues,”...

    “I don’t have any verse and scripture” to back that up, he allows, but he’s got a good feeling about it. And why not? “Jesus” is really just a stand-in in this question for morality writ large, right? If you support SSM you think the practice is moral (I should hope), and if you’re a Christian who believes something is moral, almost by definition you need to believe Jesus thinks so too. There’s nothing doctrinal about this, by Carter’s own admission. It’s just “I feel strongly this is right, ergo God must as well.”

Logically, accepting welfare rather than submitting to wage-slavery makes perfect sense. Failure to credit Blacks who have made this logical decision reflects poorly on whites."

    President Barack Obama's foreign policy failures have the world looking a lot like it did at the close of the Carter administration, says House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. "This is like 1979 all over again," the California Republican said Thursday on Fox News Channel. The last time Americans were being held hostage was in 1979 in Iran; today, they are being held by the Islamic State (ISIS), McCarthy said. Russia invaded Afghanistan in 1979, and now have invaded Ukraine, he added. Before Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in the Benghazi attacks in 2012, the last American ambassador to die in...

    In 1981, Jimmy Carter said the world could never know West Germany’s role in the negotiations for the release of 52 hostages from the US Embassy in Tehran. New research sheds light on the important part the country played in ending the crisis. […] The details of the German contribution, however, remained unclear. Now historian Frank Bösch, the director of the Center for Contemporary History in Potsdam and Spiegel have conducted research in German archives and spoken with period witnesses. This has revealed that the West German government at the time had a “smooth intermediary role,” as Bösch puts it....

    “My last year in office was the most stressful and unpleasant of my life,” writes Jimmy Carter in his new memoir A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety. America’s 39th president hasn’t forgotten the root cause of the problem. “From November 4, 1979 American hostages were held captive by Iranian militants, supported by the Ayatollah Khomeini and his government.” For those who missed the Carter Era (1976-1980) there’s a bit more to it. “This crisis was of overriding importance to me,” writes Carter, who does not explain that Iran held 52 American hostages for 444 days. He mentions not a single...

    Former President Jimmy Carter told AARP Inc. 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,”...

    Former President Jimmy Carter has said in an interview that he does not believe Jesus Christ would support abortion in most cases, identifying the "only conflict" he's had between his political duties and Christian faith. "I have never believed that Jesus would be in favor of abortion, unless it was the result of rape or incest, or the mother's life was in danger. That's been the only conflict I've had in my career between political duties and Christian faith," Carter told The New York Times in an interview posted on Friday. The Democrat made the comments in response to a...

    Georgia's governor has quietly removed Confederate Memorial Day and Robert E. Lee's Birthday from the state calendar, replacing them with the innocuous-sounding designation "state holiday." The change, first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, was contained in a memo dated August 5 sent by Governor Nathan Deal to state government staff.The move comes amid increasing backlash against symbols honoring the Confederacy. In late June, Alabama removed four Confederate flags from its Capitol. The next month, the Confederate battle flag (which has a different design from the Confederate national flag) was removed from the Capitol grounds in South Carolina after Dylann Roof,...
