    Former President Jimmy Carter offered a damning indictment of U.S. foreign policy and domestic affairs Tuesday, saying money in politics makes the nation more like an “oligarchy than a democracy” and casting President Donald Trump as a disappointment on the world stage. Carter’s criticisms, offered at his annual presentation to backers of his post-presidency Carter Center in Atlanta, went beyond Trump, but he was particularly critical of the nation’s direction under the Republican president’s leadership. The 39th president, a Democrat, offered this advice to the 45th: “Keep the peace, promote human rights and tell the truth.” Carter, 92, did not...
  • Jimmy 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,”...

    “They compassed me about also with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause.” (Psalms 109:3) Former US President Jimmy Carter weighed in this week on recent events in Paris, telling interviewers perhaps the “Palestinian problem” is partly to blame. Speaking to television personality Jon Stewart Monday night, he said the situation in the West Bank and Gaza “aggravates people” with any connections there. he also told Huffington Post Live host and college professor Marc Lamont Hill these events could be seen as “a positive turning point in some respects”. Speaking to Stewart on The Daily Show, Carter...

    Former Democrat president Jimmy Carter was crushed by conservative Ronald Reagan in 1980, after serving one disastrous term, losing the electoral vote 489-49. It was an embarrassing time to be a Democrat, as it is today after an even more calamitous time under current Democrat President Barack Obama. Carter was thoroughly annihilated by Reagan, who the political establishment said was too conservative to be elected president, only winning six states and the District of Columbia (two of the states were his own state of Georgia, and his VP choice Walter Mondale’s home state of Minnesota). Carter told CNBC Meets in...

    In what it’s calling a “major” get, the terror-tied Islamic Society of North America has booked Carter as the featured speaker at its national convention in Detroit tomorrow. It marks the first time that ISNA, which claims to be a moderate umbrella organization for American Muslim groups, has hosted a U.S. president. Carter has also agreed to participate in a breakout discussion session at the event. In 2007, the Justice Department implicated ISNA in a plot to funnel more than $12 million to Hamas terrorists. According to an unsealed court document, Justice labeled ISNA an unindicted co-conspirator in the successful...

    Former President Jimmy Carter has told a group of Muslim Americans in Detroit they should take a role in supporting peace and justice efforts. Carter delivered the keynote at Saturday's Islamic Society of North America convention at Cobo Center. The society is among America's leading Muslim groups. The Detroit area has one of the nation's largest Muslim populations. The Detroit News reports that Carter said he hopes Muslim Americans "will use the principals of Allah to bring peace and justice to all." He also spoke about his Carter Center foundation that is working toward peace in the Middle East and...

    As you all know, I am Georgia-born and raised and very proud of that. I love my home state and it’s the place where my parents were laid to rest. However, there is one thing that causes me utmost embarrassment from my home state: former President Jimmy Carter. And his recent incoherent ranting about Hamas and Israel further proves that sentiment. Jimmy Carter is an anti-Semite. As reported by Fox News, “Former President Jimmy Carter once again is getting way out in front of the U.S. government on the Middle East, co-authoring an op-ed in which he calls for Washington...

    Former President Jimmy Carter once again is getting way out in front of the U.S. government on the Middle East, co-authoring an op-ed in which he calls for Washington to recognize designated terror group Hamas as a legitimate “political actor”—while blasting Israel for its military campaign in the Gaza Strip. The scathing column on was written by Carter and Ireland’s former president Mary Robinson. The article called the current conflict a “humanitarian catastrophe,” and while acknowledging Hamas’ “indiscriminate targeting” of Israelis, focused its criticism on Israel. …

    t’s been a disastrous couple of weeks for President Barack Obama. His signature legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is a slow-motion train wreck. His poll numbers have tanked. Now, things have gotten so bad for Obama that former president Jimmy Carter has called President Obama incompetent in the family-friendly pages of Parade magazine. “He’s done the best he could under the circumstances,” Carter said of Obama in an interviewed published on Thursday. “His major accomplishment was Obamacare, and the implementation of it now is questionable at best.” (RELATED: Jimmy Carter: America no longer has a functioning democracy)...

    Television history was made last night when a guest on “Late Show with David Letterman,” for quite possibly the first and last time, used the words “murdered” and “aborted” in the same sentence. The person doing the talking was former president Jimmy Carter, who’s making the rounds to plug his new book, “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power.” (Video after the jump) Any conservative saying what Carter said, which was profoundly disturbing, would be immediately condemned by the left as an extremist – jimmycarterLETTERMAN: Things are contained in this book that I was completely ignorant about and...

    CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is expressing concern about Venezuela's escalating political crisis and wants to meet with leaders on both sides in an upcoming trip. Carter, a mediator of past political conflict in the deeply polarized South American nation, made the offer in private letters he sent this week to President Nicolas Maduro and opposition leader Henrique Capriles. Expressing "grave concern" about the loss of life in recent protests and the risk of more conflict ahead, Carter in the letter to Capriles said that for dialogue aimed at easing tensions to succeed both side must...

    Until recently, Jimmy Carter was widely acknowledged as the most incompetent US president in living memory. So it must have pricked Obama’s overinflated ego like a needle when Carter said this of his presidency: “His major accomplishment was Obamacare, and the implementation of it now is questionable at best.” That is, Obama has been an unmitigated disaster, as predicted by patriots from the beginning. Peter Wehner thought that, especially coming from Carter, this may have been too cruel a blow. But then he reflected, What exactly are the impressive achievements of President Obama? The revival of the American economy? Surging...

    Bad enough that James Earl Carter, Jr. is the worst president this country has had not named James Buchanan or Barack Obama, but he is also an anti-Catholic bigot as his latest mind droppings amply demonstrate: Former US President Jimmy Carter has disclosed that he had angry exchanges with Pope John Paul II about liberation theology and about the ordination of women. The former president said that he complained to the Pontiff about the Church’s “perpetuation of the subservience of women” while Blessed John Paul II was visiting the US in 1978, and “there was more harshness when we turned...

    An official with Yeshiva University told Arutz Sheva’s New York correspondent on Thursday that the university disagrees with the decision of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law to honor former U.S. President Jimmy Carter with the International Advocate for Peace Award. The official told Arutz Sheva that faculty at the university expressed discontent by the decision to give an award to Carter. “The decision has caused an uproar, and rightly so, but it is a decision by students and the administration cannot interfere with such decisions nor can it cancel them,” he said. Students who opposed the decision to...

    When Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss announced Friday that he wouldn’t seek a third term in 2014, a race that already was likely to feature a contested Republican primary exploded into a free-for-all. Several Republicans, including several congressmen, are eyeing the seat. The more crowded the field, the more likely the GOP race will pit mainstream conservatives against the hardliners who had grown disenchanted with Chambliss for working with Democrats to find common ground on budget and tax issues. Democrats, meanwhile, hope for exactly that kind of Republican fracas. They view the 69-year-old Chambliss’ decision as an opportunity to reverse the...

    Leader of former President Jimmy Carter’s longtime denomination say his calls for the Democratic Party to adopt a less radical pro-choice platform is a political calculation to help the party in the South. “I never have believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions,” Carter told talk show host Laura Ingraham, while promoting his new study Bible. “I’ve signed a public letter calling for the Democratic Party at the next convention to espouse my position on abortion which is to minimize the need…and limit it only to women whose life are in danger or who are pregnant as a result...

    Wednesday, September 16, 2009 How Much Has the Charge of Racism Been Diluted in the Last Few Months?    [Peter Kirsanow] An accusation of racism may be the most radioactive charge in public discourse. Lots of smart people have stated that leveling the charge serves to cut off any debate on the underlying topic, i.e., health-care reform, radical czars, ACORN, etc.   But the profligate resort to the charge over the last few months actually seems to have energized the conversation on the details of many of these subjects. Those accused — Tea Party attendees, talk-radio listeners, and even a few...

    TEHRAN, Iran - A day before flying to New York to speak directly to the American people, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad struck a confrontational tone Saturday with a parade of fighter jets and missiles and tough warnings for the United States to stay out of the Mideast. Three new domestically manufactured warplanes streaked over the capital during the parade marking the 27th anniversary of the Iraqi invasion of Iran, which sparked a 1980-88 war that killed hundreds of thousands of people. The parade also featured the Ghadr missile, which has a range of 1,120 miles, capable of reaching Israel. Some...
