  • Gallup poll: Carson's net favorability plummets

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/24/15 | Ryan Lovelace
    A new poll shows Ben Carson's net favorability rating has dropped 12 percentage points, while Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz's favorability ratings have each risen nine points. The GOP presidential candidates' favorability rankings have undergone some massive shifts, according to Gallup's Daily tracking poll. Carson has long held the largest net favorability rating among the Republican candidates, but the senators are gaining ground fast. Carson's net favorability rating is 49 percentage points, while Rubio's net favorability rating is 48 points, and Cruz's net rating is at 45 points, according to data collected from a survey conducted since November 6.

  • Map: Two countries get 75% of all U.S. spending on foreign military aid

    CBS MarketWatch ^ | November 10, 2015 | Shawn Langlois
    The United States spent a total of $5.9 billion to fund militaries around the world in 2014, according to the government’s 2015 Foreign Assistance report. Of that total, some 75%, or about $4.4 billion, was divided between Israel and Egypt. Clearly, the Middle East, at 64% of the pie, is the theme here, with Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon also found among the top 10 recipients. Closer to home, Colombia led the Americas with a relatively scant $29 million. Still, that’s enough to place it ninth overall on the list.

    Former President Jimmy Carter said recently that he provided maps of Islamic State positions in Syria to the Russian embassy in Washington, a move apparently at odds with the Obama administrations official policy of not cooperating with Russia in the Syrian war. Carter said on Sunday in Georgia that he knows Russian President Vladimir Putin fairly well because they have a common interest in fly fishing. When he met with Putin in April along with other global leaders to discuss the crises in Syria and Ukraine, the Russian president gave him an email address so the two could discuss his...

    Former President Jimmy Carter is helping settle a dispute between Martin Luther King Jr.'s children over whether to sell King's 1964 Nobel Peace Prize medal and the Bible he carried during the civil rights movement. King's sons, Martin Luther King III and Dexter King, want to sell their father's possessions, while the late civil rights leader's surviving daughter, Bernice King, opposes the sale, calling the items "sacred." Earlier this year, a judge in Georgia approved mediation to resolve the legal fight after attorneys in the case said they were close to an agreement and that a mediator would help finish...

    With Jimmy Carter's brave and touching announcement that he has cancer lesions on his brain, it's a good opportunity to reflect on his unexpected rise from small-town peanut farmer to president of the United States. How, to put it bluntly, did a little-known, two-term state senator and one-term governor from Georgia defeat better-known members of his own party and then an incumbent president to win the White House, seemingly overnight? If anyone's taking a page from Carter's playbook, it might just be Donald Trump. Let's set the table: Eight years with the same party in the White House, two terms...

At a press conference at the Pentagon, Carter said the military prison in Cuba should be closed before President Barack Obama leaves his post in 2016. This is not something, in my judgment, that we should leave to the next president, Carter said, according to AFP. The defense secretary'sreasons for wanting to close Guantanamo something Obama made a cornerstone of his campaign back in 2009 aremanifold.

Mr. Carter, speaking at a news conference at the Carter Center here, said his health had been under scrutiny since May, when he had a cold while traveling in Guyana. The former president added that the cancer, which he said was melanoma, had been found in his liver, part of which was removed during a procedure on Aug. 3. He described the melanoma on his brain as four very small spots.

New research sheds light on the important part the country played in ending the crisis. [] The details of the German contribution, however, remained unclear. Now historian Frank Bsch, the director of the Center for Contemporary History in Potsdam and Spiegel have conducted research in German archives and spoken with period witnesses. This has revealed that the West German government at the time had a smooth intermediary role, as Bsch puts it....

Carter was responding to a question from Hartmann about recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign financing like Citizens United.

If you support SSM you think the practice is moral (I should hope), and if youre a Christian who believes something is moral, almost by definition you need to believe Jesus thinks so too. Theres nothing doctrinal about this, by Carters own admission. Its just I feel strongly this is right, ergo God must as well.

Sunni tribal fighters in Ramadi had complained of not receiving any training or equipment from the central government.

    After the price of oil quadrupled in 1973, Syria and other Arab states put pressure on Saudi Arabia to use its new wealth against Israel. Part of the Saudi government's response was to lead a campaign against support for Israel in the U.S. On their own, however, the Saudis lacked the connections and savvy to affect American-Israeli ties. To make up for this, the Saudi state recruited help. In "The American House of Saud" (Franklin Watts, 448 pages, $18.95), Steven Emerson, a journalist and former staff member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, chronicles anti-Israeli activities undertaken in recent years...

    The guy wearing the red bandanna didnt mess around. Measuring, cutting and hammering away, he made sure the siding was just right for the new house in Oak Cliff. Nothing like having a seasoned leader on the job. Former President Jimmy Carter didnt let a little heat and his age (90) get in the way Wednesday morning at the house on Exeter Avenue.

    Former President Jimmy Carter said President Barack Obama "waited too long" to go after ISIS and criticized what he described as the president's changing foreign policy.

The 39th president was in Texas working on a Habitat for Humanity project. "Then when [ISIS] moved into Iraq, the Sunni Muslims didn't object to their being there and about a third of the territory in...

    Former President Jimmy Carter had some interesting things to say about his 1980 defeat to Ronald Reagan; he could have won if he was more ‘manly,’ or something.

    Former President Jimmy Carter marked his 90th birthday Wednesday with a lengthy interview on CNBC Meets where he discussed his one term in office and the one thing he would have handled differently the Iran Hostage Crisis. Carter suggested Operation Eagle Claw, a failed 1980 attempt to rescue the hostages taken by Iranian revolutionaries at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, could have been successful if he committed one more helicopter to the mission. "I think I would have been re-elected easily if I had been able to rescue our hostages from the Iranians," said Carter. "And everybody asks me...

    Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more manly in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980. I could've been re-elected if I'd taken military action against Iran, shown that I was strong and resolute and, um, manly and so forth, said the former president,...

    Around 2 p.m. Tuesday, a makeshift boat carrying nine Cuban rafters landed in front of Key Biscaynes multi-story oceanfront Mar Azul condominium. As the rafters all men in their 20s, 30s and 40s - scrambled ashore, Mar Azul residents came out to take a peek, said Police Chief Charles Press. One condo resident shot video of the rafters as they walked away from the boat, which had inner tubes on the sides and what appeared to be an engine in the back. The words Brayan and Yoanni were painted on the back. Several were wearing soaked T-shirts, shirts and...
