  • President Trump has upended four decades of successful U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East

    Refers to an article by Hal Brands, Steven A. Cook, and Kenneth M. Pollack. Trump’s break with decades of U.S. strategy in the Persian Gulf has been conducted in his typically cavalier manner. But it did not come out of nowhere. Americans have been debating their long-standing strategic commitment to the Gulf for several years now. Critics of that commitment have offered multiple arguments for why Washington ought to pull back from the region. Each is founded in realities that should refine U.S. strategy toward the Gulf, but not abandon it, as Trump appears to be doing.
  • Heed Jimmy Carter on the Danger of Mail-In Voting

    ‘Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.” That quote isn’t from President Trump, who criticized mail-in voting this week after Wisconsin Democrats tried and failed to change an election at the last minute into an exclusively mail-in affair. It’s the conclusion of the bipartisan 2005 report of the Commission on Federal Election Reform, chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker III.
  • A follow-up on the Carter Page warrant is, once again, not flattering to the FBI

    THE JUSTICE Department’s inspector general has followed up his devastating December report on the FBI’s securing of a secret intelligence-gathering warrant on U.S. citizen Carter Page and, once again, the news is not flattering. In December, the inspector general, Michael Horowitz, found that the FBI supplied a secret panel of judges with unverified, inaccurate and, in one case, falsified data in support of its warrant applications regarding Mr. Page. Mr. Horowitz’s new report, released March 31, makes clear that this was not an isolated incident. In 29 cases drawn from five years’ worth of FBI secret warrant applications, Mr. Horowitz...

    Plains, Georgia - Former President Jimmy Carter suggested Pete Buttigieg's campaign is searching for answers after a disappointing fourth-place finish in Saturday's South Carolina primary, the first test of candidates' support in a state with predominantly African-American voters. Buttigieg and his husband Chasten paid a visit to Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter on Sunday morning, joining them for breakfast here in Georgia, which holds its Democratic primary on March 24. Carter told reporters at Buffalo Cafe in Plains that he is fond of Buttigieg, mentioning their work on a Habitat for Humanity project in South Bend, Indiana, where...
  • An Aide’s View: Jimmy Carter as ‘the Anti-Trump’

    In “Donald Trump Is a Hostage to 1979” (Sunday Review, Jan. 12), Stephen Metcalf argues that President Trump’s decision to kill Qassim Suleimani stems from his obsession with being the anti-Jimmy Carter. But the image of Jimmy Carter as a weak president defies reality. As a former submarine officer, Mr. Carter considered a naval blockade of Iran’s ports, but his national security and military advisers were concerned that it would enhance the influence of the Soviet Union and lead to the hostages being returned in coffins. As president he reversed the decline in post-Vietnam War defense spending. All the weapons...
  • Newt Gingrich: US vs Iran: Liberals don’t get that we’ve been at war for 40 years – But Trump does [Good read]

    President Trump on Wednesday gave the most honest, direct speech about Iran's dictatorship that has ever given by an American president. It was a refreshing break from the lies and self-deception that have characterized much of the American establishment’s efforts to avoid thinking about it. Watching the various reactions to the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, I have been struck by how historically ignorant most politicians and commentators are – and how our political-diplomatic language and mindset block us from reality. The reality is: Iran's dictatorship has been waging war against the United States for more than 40 years....

    Since 1979 the Islamic Republic of Iran has been at war with the United States. Generally a very one-sided war with only the Iranian fanatics in Tehran inflicting any casualties. The United States has been reluctant to really engage Iran, partly out of fear of things escalating into a larger regional conflict. And partly out of some misguided belief that one can negotiate with religious fanatics and expect them to abide by any treaty or agreement they enter into. In 1979 the Iranian regime took and held American diplomats hostage for four hundred forty four days, only releasing them when...

    It’s impossible to exaggerate the importance of the elimination of the Iranian al Quds commander Qasem Soleimani. He was killed by a US airstrike which targeted him at Baghdad airport, where he had been met by his close henchman Abu Mahdi al Muhandis and who was killed alongside him in a vehicle convoy with five others. This was America’s response to Iran’s escalating aggression, including an attack on US forces at an Iraqi military base on December 27 that killed a US contractor and wounded several others, and after an Iranian-backed mob attacked the US embassy on December 29 scrawling...

    FISA Court questions whether ‘information contained in other FBI applications is reliable’. Less than a week after Department of Justice Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz released his investigation detailing FBI misconduct in obtaining a FISA spy warrant on a Trump 2016 presidential campaign aide, the presiding judge of the FISA Court, Rosemary Collyer, issued a Four-Page Response Order on Dec. 17, 2019. This unprecedented order by the FISA court condemned—and verified—ongoing wrongdoing by the FBI in the entire approach to the FISA process. Judge Collyer’s order also highlighted just how serious these breaches of conduct actually were, and the potential...

    Before the first FISA application was signed and submitted mired by the pompous, self-serving serial liar James Comey, who signed three of them, Carter Page wrote Comey a letter telling him he was a government asset working with the CIA and the FBI. If that letter had been presented to the FISA court by Comey, as it should have been, the FISA court never would have approved the Obama administration surveillance of Carter Page and Team Trump. ... If you don’t have a legal foundation to surveil somebody and you keep doing it, is that bad?” Sen. Graham asked Horowitz....

The American public deserves to know everything the FBI did,” Kennedy said ... “I’m asking President Trump to declassify the entire record so that Attorney General Barr and FBI Director Wray can release it to the American people.

    Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was admitted to a hospital on Monday evening for a surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, caused by bleeding due to his recent falls, his spokeswoman said. The procedure is scheduled for Tuesday morning at Emory University Hospital, Deanna Congileo said in a statement. Carter has fallen at least three times this year, and the first incident in the spring required hip replacement surgery. He traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, and helped build a Habitat for Humanity home after getting 14 stiches following a fall on Oct. 6. And he was briefly hospitalized after fracturing...

    Former President Jimmy Carter said Sunday during a church service in Plains, Georgia, that he “was absolutely and completely at ease with death” after doctors informed him in 2015 that his cancer had spread to his brain. “I assumed, naturally, that I was going to die very quickly,” the 39th president said while delivering a church sermon. “I obviously prayed about it. I didn’t ask God to let me live, but I asked God to give me a proper attitude toward death. And I found that I was absolutely and completely at ease with death.”

    Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has been hospitalized after breaking his pelvis during a fall at his home in Georgia just weeks after a similar accident left him with heavy facial bruising and 14 stitches. The 95-year-old suffered a 'minor pelvic fracture' on Monday following the incident at his home in Plains. Carter, who is the nation's oldest living president, was admitted to the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center for treatment. A statement from The Carter Center said the former President remains in good spirits and looks forward to recovering at home.
