The 91-year-old, who had played a large part of the group since its founding in 2007, announced in March that he no longer needed treatment for cancer, less than seven months after publicly revealing that doctors had found melanoma that had spread to his brain.

    Hamas-loving former US President Jimmy Carter is now cancer free thanks to a cancer drug developed by a joint US-Israeli team. This is from the first link. Carter announced in August that he had been diagnosed with melanoma that had spread to his brain and laid out a treatment plan, including a round of targeted radiation at the brain tumors and doses of an immune-boosting drug every three weeks. Keytruda, the drug, was approved not long before Carter's announcement and helps his body seek out and destroy cancer cells. Carter's spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said in an email that Carter...

    Joe Biden is in Los Angeles this week, but someone ought to tell him that he shouldn’t expect to be recognized by too many of the locals. During his ABC show Monday, late night host Jimmy Kimmel aired a rather funny video of one of his staff asking Angelenos to identify Biden. Not a single one of those interviewed (which, in fairness, was slightly less than the entire population of Los Angeles) knew Biden was the Vice President of the United States. We’re not sure if the segment is a testament to deceptive film-making, the irrelevance of Biden, the stupidity...

Marvin Elkind said Hoffa was killed by a mob enforcer and buried in the foundations of the towering General Motors’ HQ in Detroit, Michigan. ‘It was his own people who did it,’ Mr Elkind said in excerpts of a new book published in the New York Post, adding Mafia member Tony Jack insinuated he was responsible.

"I guess my biggest failure was not getting reelected," he said in an interview with Big Think, referring to the 1980 presidential election. Carter, 86, said the loss taught him "not to ever let American hostages be held for 444 days in a foreign country without extracting them." He added, "I did the best I could, but I failed." Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) challenged Carter in the Democratic primaries "and then that cost me...

His record, though, shows he was quite a good president Oakton, Va. - In this season of new resolutions, Americans would do well to rethink their perceptions of Jimmy Carter. President Carter has suffered the misfortune of having his legacy almost entirely shaped by his political enemies rather than by objective reality or a basic sense of American fairness. Today, Carter is caricatured as a weak-kneed, sweater-wearing puritan who struggled with lust in his heart, presided over a malaised America, and micromanaged even the scheduling of the White House tennis courts.

It’s too late, of course, for these huge wins in predominantly white, working-class states to help Hillary. But if John McCain is paying attention, Hillary may be doing him the favor of all favors – with a huge assist from Obama himself, of course. Obama’s recent policy statements, viewed in the context of demographic trends in Democratic primaries, point the way to a McCain victory. White working-class voters, as...

    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. Quick review: After proclaiming that Hamas terrorists were willing to accept Israel as a “neighbor next door,” Carter’s Hamas hug buddies flipped him the bird. They gladly accepted the diplomatic legitimacy Carter’s visit conferred upon them, while clinging bitterly to their insistence on the destruction of the Jewish state. After laying a wreath in honor of the murderous Yasser Arafat, Carter dutifully agreed to deliver a letter...

    ( Former US President Jimmy Carter says Palestinian Authority Arabs living in Gaza are being “starved to death” by Israel. Carter made the claim speaking with students at the American University in Cairo on Thursday, saying that Gaza Arabs are receiving fewer calories per day than people in the poorest regions of Africa. “It’s an atrocity, what is being perpetrated as punishment on the people in Gaza,” said Carter. “It is a crime… I think it is an abomination that this continues to go on.” The former president has not actually visited Gaza; Israel declined to authorize his use of...

    Prospects of Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton winning the US Presidential nomination have turned grimmer and dimmer with bad news breaking by the day. On Thursday, former President, Jimmy Carter drove a dagger through the heart of her campaign by indicating he would be supporting rival Barack Obama, even as African-American challenger outdid her famous fundraising ability by two to one, taking in $40 million in contributions to her $20 million in March, but her campaign received a big blow when Carter confirmed that his heart is with Obama. Carter declared that he will cast his vote as a super-delegate in...

    January 12, 2008 -- NO matter what kind of hard-luck stories about growing up the presidential candidates can come up with this year, they'll be hard-pressed to match the woeful tales Jimmy Carter can spin. In "A Remarkable Mother," his upcoming Simon & Schuster memoir about Lillian Carter, Carter says his Georgia home was constantly under siege from armies of insects and rodents, including rats so big they could "successfully challenge" most cats. "Any container of milk or other food had to be kept covered, often with a piece of cheesecloth. We used flyswatters and sticky tapes hanging from the...

    Conservative pundit Ann Coulter says GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is the “Republican Jimmy Carter” and nominating him would be a big mistake for the party. Appearing with John Gibson and Heather Nauert on Fox News’ “The Big Story,” Coulter was asked about Huckabee’s recent surge in the polls. “I’m getting tired of this being blamed on the evangelicals,” said Coulter. Huckabee’s rise is actually “bad for the evangelicals,” she asserted. “Mike Huckabee is the Republican Jimmy Carter.” Nominating the ordained Baptist minister “would be a big mistake,” Coulter opined. “He has many good qualities. Unfortunately, the things that are...

    I interviewed President Carter on The Young Turks this morning. We talked about his new book Beyond the White House: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope, his work at the Carter Center and the new group of legendary statesmen he is a part of called "The Elders." How cool is that name, by the way? Who doesn't want to one day be part of The Elders? We also talked about the current Bush administration. President Carter said this administration has done things that are far more radical than anything that happened in the Ronald Reagan or George H. W. Bush...

    The Associated Press headline says: Jimmy Carter faces down Darfur officials. That headline is ridiculous, of course. Because after all his blustering and threatening, Carter showed his usual strength of character by completely caving in. " Carter later agreed to a compromise by which tribal representatives would be brought to him at another location later Wednesday. But the refugee delegates never showed up."

    NEW YORK - Former President Carter, who already has a book coming out this fall about his post-White House years, is working on a memoir about his mother, Lillian, to be published next spring by Simon & Schuster. "Jimmy Carter has inspired millions. Its a great opportunity to meet the woman who inspired him," David Rosenthal, executive vice president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, said Thursday in a statement. The Lillian Carter book, currently untitled, is a "loving, admiring, wry homage" to the activist and former Peace Corps volunteer widely known as the down-to-earth "Miss Lillian." According to Simon...
