    Former President Jimmy Carter believes that President Donald Trump has a legitimate case to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize if he brokers a denuclearization deal with North Korea. Carter won the award in 2002. “If President Trump is successful in getting a peace treaty that’s acceptable to both sides with North Korea, I think he certainly ought to be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize,” said Carter to Politico Magazine’s “Off Message” Podcast. “I think it would be a worthy and a momentous accomplishment that no previous president has been able to realize.” Trump is set to meet with...

    The Norwegian police said Tuesday they had closed an investigation into Donald Trump's fake Nobel Peace Prize nomination after failing to identify the person behind it. The Norwegian Nobel Institute filed a police report earlier this year after receiving a seemingly fraudulent nomination of the US president for the prestigious prize. Suspicion mounted that the nomination was submitted by a person suspected of committing identity fraud to appear legitimate, as only a select group of individuals -- including members of parliament and government, former laureates and some university professors -- are entitled to propose names.

But in case you missed it I’d highly recommend Clarice’s Pieces from yesterday: Judge Ellis Wants to See Mueller's Hunting License.For some reason it reminded me of John “Can I get me a hunting license here?” Kerry. John Kerry’s hunting license has long since been revoked but that doesn’t seem to stop him from roaming the fields, looking to bag himself another medal of valor for consorting with the enemy. As Fox News reported, Kerry is actively engaged in “shadow diplomacy” in an attempt to preserve the Iran nuclear...

    WASHINGTON – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said President Trump could qualify for the Nobel Peace Prize depending on the outcome of ongoing negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. “We’re a long way from that, but let’s see," Pelosi said in reference to the prize. "There’s always an opportunity for a president of the United States to qualify. Let’s see how it goes."

    Sen. Graham: Trump May Deserve the Nobel Peace Prize for North Korea Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News Friday that if President Trump is able to get North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to agree to denuclearize, the president should get the Nobel Peace Prize. Graham praised Trump for the stunning progress made in getting North and South Korea leaders to meet Thursday to discuss denuclearization. It wouldn't have happened without Trump," Graham said Friday. “The fact that the North Korean and the South Korean president met and they vowed to end the war. What happened? Donald Trump convinced...

    If the Nobel Peace Prize really is about "peace," guess who wins the next one hands down.  Even the lefties are admitting it. This must give the Nobel committee the shivers, forced to admit that Donald Trump of all people brought peace to the Korean peninsula after 65 years.  Yes, that Donald Trump, the one they have been hating for all these years.  And the war Trump had been rising to dangerous levels when he stopped it. The line pointing to Trump for this is obvious enough, too.  When Trump made highly risky, seemingly crazy tweets declaring the North Korean dictator Little Rocket...

    Yesh Atid chairman and former Finance Minister Yair Lapid urged former President Barack Obama to return the Nobel Peace Prize he was awarded in 2009, if an investigative report regarding his administration’s behavior towards the Hezbollah terror group is correct. Speaking with party members on Monday, Lapid responded to a report released by Politico early Monday morning which claims that the Obama administration systematically shielded the Hezbollah terrorist organization from prosecution, blunting the efforts of the Drug Enforcement Administration to crack-down on Hezbollah’s global drug trade and money laundering rackets. “If the report is correct,” Lapid told party members at...

    Irena Sendler Died: May 12, 2008 (aged 98) Warsaw, Poland During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive. Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids. Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants...

I doubt he ever would have received that honor if the tenders knew who Dylan really was. But...

    The State Department doled out $13 million in grants for longtime friend and Clinton Foundation donor Muhammad Yunus during Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, according to federal records. The grants were provided in 18 separate transactions from the U.S. Agency for International Development to the Bangladesh-based Grameen bank, according to a Sunday evening report from the Daily Caller News Foundation, for which Yunus served as a founding board member. Groups associated with Yunus through business relationships received an additional $11 million. Yunus oversaw the distribution of microcredit loans to impoverished borrowers for the bank for over 30 years....

    Britain's political class and commentariat just don't get contemporary America. They don't understand the revolutionary nature of US conservatism and the profundity of its ambitions. They don't understand the extraordinary self-serving venality of corporate America and its Republican allies. They don't understand the ruthless pursuit of radical conservative interests and disregard for all others. They think, like Tony Blair, that America is having an eccentric wobble - and that if George Bush is engaged with, it will sooner or later be business as usual. They should read these two books, by two of America's best economists and most forensic critics,...

    JTA - The fallout from Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize in Literature has taken a strange turn: The Jewish folk singer’s website has taken down its only brief mention of the award. Dylan has not acknowledged the award at any of his performances in the week since the Nobel committee’s Oct. 13 announcement, but his website made one allusion to it this week on a page promoting a new collection of his lyrics, “The Lyrics: 1961: 2012.” The page on bobdylan.com simply called him the “winner of the Nobel Prize in literature.” As of Friday morning, the reference has been erased...

    A member of the Swedish Academy that awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature to Bob Dylan says the American singer-songwriter’s silence since receiving the honor is “impolite and arrogant.” Per Wastberg said Dylan’s lack of reaction to the honor the academy bestowed on him last week was predictable, but disrespectful nonetheless. “One can say that it is impolite and arrogant. He is who he is,” Wastberg was quoted as saying in Saturday’s edition of the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter. …

    With Bob Dylan winning the Nobel Prize in literature, this year’s Nobel laureates became an all-male ensemble, something that’s not unusual in the 115-year-old history of the prestigious awards. But this is 2016. Critics are questioning why the Nobel judges couldn’t find a single woman across the planet worthy of being honored in any of the six prize categories. “No woman wins Nobel prize this year. Oh the times they ain’t a-changin’,” Leah Kaminsky, an Australian author and doctor, wrote on Twitter. Swedish writer and literature professor Ebba Witt-Brattstrom accused the Nobel judges of a lack of imagination after they...

    Bob Dylan, regarded as the voice of a generation for his influential songs from the 1960s onwards, has won the Nobel Prize for Literature in a surprise decision that made him the only singer-songwriter to win the award. The 75-year-old Dylan — who won the prize for "having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition" — now finds himself in the company of Winston Churchill, Thomas Mann and Rudyard Kipling as Nobel laureates. The announcement was met with gasps in Stockholm's stately Royal Academy hall, followed — unusually — by some laughter. Dylan's songs, such as "Blowin'...
