  • Andrew Young uses the same term as Trump to describe Haiti, but notes U.S. is partly to blame

    First things first: former Atlanta Mayor and U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young Jr. signaled exactly zero – ZERO – support for President Donald Trump’s remarks disparaging Haiti and Africa as “shithole” countries during recent talks on immigration. Instead he offered a learned and dispassionate assessment of Haiti’s history and its immeasurable contributions to the United States whilst throwing a little shade, as the kids say, the president’s way. He is a student of and a product of history he doubts the president grasps. “Because I grew up in New Orleans, I have had an appreciation for the role Haiti played in...

  • Andrew Young weighs in on the Confederate flag debate

    ATLANTA - An international civil rights icon and former Atlanta mayor weighs in on the debate the entire country is talking about. FOX 5's Morse Diggs sat down with Ambassador Andrew Young to get his take on the Confederate flag and his answer might surprise you. He said some people fighting against the flag are more worried about treating the symptoms than treating the illness. Also he is not advocating a tax on the flag. The former two-term mayor suggested people focus more on the substance of the problems and issues of today and not on a symbol. He said...

    Reid’s guest, former United Nations Ambassador under President Jimmy Carter, Andrew Young, interrupted her when she asked about what kind of problem Martin’s killing represents for the black community. “No,” Young said. “Trayvon is a martyr.” . . Young noted that George Zimmerman’s story is “just as much a tragedy,” because “his life is ruined over a love of guns and a false sense of what manhood is.”

    The Islamic Republic Is Not Iran By Amil Iman We just don't get it. The Left in America is screaming to high heaven that the mess we are in, in Iraq and the war on terrorism has been caused by the right-wing and that George W. Bush, the so-called "dim-witted cowboy," has created the entire mess. The truth is the entire nightmare can be traced back to the liberal democratic policies of the leftist Jimmy Carter, who created a firestorm that destabilized our greatest ally in the Muslim world, the shah of Iran, in favor of a religious fanatic, the...

    HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — During the latest episode of the battle over a sex tape showing ex-presidential candidate John Edwards being less than presidential, Judge Carl Fox stopped with a quizzical look. Rielle Hunter, a campaign videographer with whom Edwards had an extramarital affair and a child, claims the tape is hers and wants it back from Andrew Young, the former Edwards aide who wrote a tell-all book about the politician's quest for the White House. At a hearing in Orange County Superior Court on Wednesday, lawyers for Young argued that Hunter had no claim to it. They contended the video...

    Two weeks before the 2008 Iowa caucuses, the National Enquirer published a detailed story reporting that Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards had had an affair, and that the woman involved -- campaign videographer Rielle Hunter -- was pregnant, and that Edwards had arranged for an aide to falsely claim to be the father, and that Hunter and the aide and the aide's family were being taken care of financially by a wealthy Edwards supporter. It was, to say the least, explosive. At the time, Edwards was a serious contender in the Democratic presidential race, so when the story was published,...

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- A North Carolina judge wants security officers to accompany a former John Edwards aide as he goes to retrieve a sex tape of his former boss.

Former Edwards loyalist Andrew Young has said he has the original tape and copies stored in an Atlanta safety deposit box. Jones wants the security officer to accompany Young into the vault. Jones has declared Young was in contempt for not...

    Here is video of Chris Matthews asking Andrew Young, the former Edwards aide who has written a tell-all book, "How do you feel about that, being basically a rat fink?" (Video)Matthews told Young that he "can't imagine being in politics working for a guy that I'd given up on, it seems to me that you ought to get out...don't work for somebody that you think is a louse, you did for a year." Young said what he did was not morally right but he said that he had "responsibilities."

    Here is video of former John Edwards aide Andrew Young talking about his book, The Politician, and his role in helping him with the bizarre cover-up of Edwards' affair with staffer Rielle Hunter. Young details the two sides of Edwards' personality, how he could be cold and calculating at one moment, and then appear to be warm and caring the next. He talked about the pressure Edwards put on him to assist in the coverup of his affair, even as he was running for President during the 2007-2008 campaign. . . . (VIDEO)

    For a man whose first—and only—winning election campaign was waged against an inarticulate septuagenarian hog farmer, John Edwards made quite a splash when he arrived in Washington in 1999 as the new junior senator from North Carolina. Lauch Faircloth (the hog farmer in question) had been anything but a formidable opponent, and Mr. Edwards did seem like a fast-talking opportunist, the quintessential trial-lawyer-turned-politician. But the members of the liberal establishment swooned—pundits and politicians alike. They found themselves charmed by his enthusiasm, his good looks, his populist appeal. Here, they said, was a younger Bill Clinton without the baggage, a potential...

    Disgraced presidential wanna-be John Edwards slept with his kooky lover in his wife's bed and made a sex tape with her, a shocking new book claims. In "The Politician," Andrew Young - the aide who once claimed Edwards' love child was his - says the ambitious ex-senator stopped at nothing to hide his indiscretions, including urging his girlfriend to abort their child. Young describes Edwards as "barely under control" the first time the two men discussed Hunter's pregnancy. Edwards called Hunter a "crazy slut" and questioned who fathered the baby. He asked Young to help talk her into an abortion,...

    ATLANTA (AP) - Civil rights icon Andrew Young says Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is too young and lacks the support network to ascend to the White House. In a media interview posted online, Young also quipped that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton has her husband behind her, and that "Bill is every bit as black as Barack." "He's probably gone with more black women than Barack," Young said of former President Clinton, drawing laughter from a live television audience. Young, 75, was quick to follow his comment on Bill Clinton with the disclaimer, "I'm clowning."

    In April 1979, 64 percent of the black citizens of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) lined up at the polls to vote in the first democratic election in the history of that southern African nation. Two-thirds of them supported Abel Muzorewa, a bishop in the United Methodist Church. He was the first black prime minister of a country only 4 percent white. Muzorewa's victory put an end to the 14-year political odyssey of outgoing prime minister Ian Smith, the stubborn World War II veteran who had infamously announced in 1976, "I do not believe in black majority rule--not in a thousand years."...

    THOMAS SOWELL: SYNDICATED COLUMNIST Look at ghetto economics ANDREW Young's statement that blacks have been "ripped off" by stores run by Jews, Koreans, and Arabs has been rightly criticized and he has apologized. But these irresponsible remarks have wider implications than Young and wider implications than their political repercussions. For decades, one of the biggest blind spots of most civil rights leaders and spokesmen for the black community has been their lack of economics knowledge.
