    Former President Jimmy Carter took a not-so-subtle jab at President Donald Trump and his supporters Friday on an episode of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS, suggesting that Americans who voted for him wanted “a jerk” to be president. “Does America kind of want a jerk as president?” CBS host Stephen Colbert pressed the former president on the late-night talk show. “Apparently, from this recent election, yes,” Carter replied. “I never knew it before.” Colbert then asked Carter what he thought is the most important quality for a president. “I used to think it was to tell the...

Liberals all over America who have spent the last month claiming in their anti-gun frenzy since the school shootings in Parkland, Florida are not about repealing the 2nd Amendment nodded in agreement as they...
  • A Prominent Liberal Judge From The 9th Circuit Court Has Died At 87

    03/29/2018 5:23:14 PM PDT · by mgstarr · 131 replies
    Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has died, a court spokesperson confirmed. He was 87. A liberal champion, Reinhardt was appointed to the bench by President Carter in 1980. He authored key liberal court opinions on hot-button topics ranging from abortion and marriage equality to assisted suicide and immigration. At the same time, the opinions made him a target of criticism from conservative corners — and of regular reversal from the Supreme Court.

    In a CBS interview scheduled to air Tuesday, Jimmy Carter did not mince words when denouncing President Donald Trump’s decision to hire John Bolton as his national security adviser. “I have been concerned at some of the things he’s decided,” the 93-year-old former president told “CBS This Morning” host Norah O’Donnell, according to a press release from the network. “I think his last choice for national security adviser was very ill-advised. I think John Bolton has been the worst mistake he’s made.” The excerpt CBS released on Monday did not include commentary from Carter on why he thought Trump had...

  • New Research Shows Guccifer 2.0 Files Were Copied Locally, Not Hacked

    07/09/2017 2:28:09 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 105 replies
    New meta-analysis has emerged from a document published today by an independent researcher known as The Forensicator, which suggests that files eventually published by the Guccifer 2.0 persona were likely initially downloaded by a person with physical access to a computer connected to the internal DNC network. The individual most likely used a USB drive to copy the information. The groundbreaking new analysis irrevocably destroys the Russian hacking narrative, and calls the actions of Crowdstrike and the DNC into question. The document supplied to Disobedient Media via Adam Carter was authored by an individual known as The Forensicator. The full...

Judge Rosemary Collyer wrote in her response that "the Court has never previously received a request from Congress for the contents of any specific FISA application or order,...

According to Carter the report will be on FBI corruption and will cause a major shake-up at the FBI — And it’s coming as early as this week. Sara Carter: We’re going to see parts of that report before December (end of the month). We’re going to see other parts of his report coming out after January. And they’re looking at Peter Strzok. They’re looking at Comey. They’re looking at 27 leakers. It would not surprise me if there was a shake-up...

This “oversight” was disclosed in a briefing by the Department of Justice to the Senate Judiciary...

    U.S. has no plans to seek Carter's help on N. Korea: White House 2017/10/28 WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 (Yonhap) -- The United States does not plan to seek former president Jimmy Carter's help in resolving the nuclear standoff with North Korea, the White House said Friday. Carter made public his willingness to visit North Korea in an interview with the New York Times published earlier this week. He said he had told President Donald Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, he was available if needed, but has so far received a negative response.

    Jimmy Carter is the oldest of all living ex-presidents at 93, but he is still in tune with national politics. He made his views about some of the latest pressing national issues very clear in a recent interview with New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. On Russia meddling in the election Dowd asked Carter: “Did the Russians purloin the election from Hillary?” Carter said: “Rosie and I have a difference of opinion on that.” Rosie is Carter’s wife. “I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes, or any votes,” Carter followed up.....

    ...And yet, there is someone who is eager to work for President Trump. The 93-year-old would like to pull another rabbit out of a hat — just not a killer rabbit — and enter into a productive partnership with Donald Trump over North Korea. When you think about it, though, it makes sense. One of the basic premises of the Carter Center is that you should talk to dictators. The closest our two countries had come until now to resuming the Korean War was in 1994. Carter flew into Pyongyang on his own over the objections of President Bill Clinton...

    In one of his first major interviews since President Donald Trump took office, former President Jimmy Carter opened up about his views on politics and cultural clashes in the Trump era. And although the former president said Trump was exacerbating racial tensions, Carter also repeatedly defended the current president: • He said although Trump may be contributing to the souring of America's image in the world, the declining image of America "precedes Trump." • Carter was not as bothered by Trump's relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and disagreed with his wife about the impact of Russia's meddling in the...

As Dowd writes, Carter sounded “eager” to work with Donald Trump on North Korea. He said he would even be willing to go there himself: He said he has talked to Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, Trump’s national security adviser, who is a good friend, including at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s funeral when McMaster asked to sit next to Carter, but has so far gotten a negative response. “I told him that I was available if they ever need...

    This week, former US President Jimmy Carter offered himself to North Korea’s communist government to “act as a human shield against an attack by the Trump Administration” contending that “even a madman like Trump would surely pull back if he knew an innocent American’s life was at stake.” Fortunately for the ex-president, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un rebuffed the offer. “Our might is supreme,” Kim boasted. “We have no need for shields—human or otherwise. Mr. Carter, like all of my enemies, will die at a time and place of my choosing. Even those who to attempt to hide like my...
