    The Trump administration is seeking the dismissal of a suit alleging the nonprofit helmed by former president Jimmy Carter has used taxpayer funding to provide material support to international terrorist groups, including Hamas. The Zionist Advocacy Center, which filed the recently unsealed suit in 2015, alleges the Carter Center received more than $30 million in taxpayer grants while violating federal statutes barring it from using the cash to provide material support to terror groups. The plaintiffs maintain the Carter Center has violated the law by hosting designated terrorists at is facilities, as well as by providing various forms of assistance...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Former leftwing Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens – otherwise known as Nixon’s Folly – suggested in a NYTimes op-ed on Tuesday that the right to keep and bear arms is a “relic of the 18th century” and that the time has come to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution. 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.

    Former President Jimmy Carter says President Trump's choice of John Bolton as his new national security adviser is "the worst mistake" Mr. Trump has made. "I have been concerned at some of the things he's decided. 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," Carter told "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell Monday. Bolton will be Mr. Trump's third national security adviser since taking office.

    President Donald Trump should not be impeached even if Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation turns up wrongdoing by the president, according to former commander-in-chief Jimmy Carter. Carter expressed faith Sunday in the United States government and its checks and balances, adding that he believed Trump would serve out his full four-year term unless Mueller brought criminal charges against him. "You know, I have confidence in the American system of government," Carter told CBS' Sunday Morning. "I think ultimately the restraints on a president from the Congress and from the Supreme Court will be adequate to protect our nation, if he...
  • Dem Senator: No Gov’t Shutdown Has Occurred When One Party Controls Congress And WH

    Oh, I see we have another talking point coming from Senate Democrats: never in the history of this country has a shutdown occurred when one party controls both chambers of Congress and the White House. Uh, that’s not true. I know for some Democrats history began when Obama was elected president, but Jimmy Carter controlled both Houses during his presidency and government still shut down. It was over various projects in the defense bill, including funding for a nuclear powered aircraft carrier (via USA Today): Democrat Jimmy Carter was president, and his party held majorities in both the House and...

    No one knows her name, but a young Iranian woman waving a white scarf has become a symbol of almost forty years of struggle by Iranian women, protesting the gender apartheid that clerics brought to our country, overnight, in the winter of 1979. She waved a white scarf in the air as a symbol of peaceful defiance and a campaign, #MyStealthyFreedom, of women fighting for their right to feel the wind in their hair in Iran, the country of my birth. The reaction of the paramilitary forces of the regime has not been so peaceful, with this young woman allegedly...

    Where is the punishment of the Mullahs for the American blood they have shed? The mullocracy in Iran is bragging that it has crushed the demonstrations against the regime that broke out on December 28. Regime change from within still remains a forlorn hope, as the theocratic police state has employed its usual brutal violence and intimidation to deny the protestors any momentum. Burning identification cards and electrical bills seem the last recourse for those brave Iranians abandoned by the so-called “global community” that averts its gaze from the destruction of human rights it pretends to worship. So it goes...

    President Trump tweeted a friendly shout-out to former president Jimmy Carter for a week-old interview Saturday morning. “Just read the nice remarks by President Jimmy Carter about me and how badly I am treated by the press (Fake News). Thank you Mr. President!,” Trump wrote at 8:28 a.m. It appears Trump was finally catching up with Carter’s Oct. 21 interview in The New York Times. “I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about,” Carter said. “I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else...

    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.....

    Former President Jimmy Carter says that he let National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster know that he is willing to go to North Korea to negotiate an end to the crisis with the regime of Kim Jong-un. No word on when McMaster was able to pick his jaw up off the floor. Carter mentioned his eagerness to help in an interview with New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. “I would go, yes,” Carter said, citing North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's unpredictability as a reason. “I’m afraid, too, of a situation,” he added. “I don’t know what they’ll do. Because they want...

    ...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...

    Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has reportedly said he would be prepared to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in an attempt to bring "permanent peace" to the Korean Peninsula. "Should former President Carter be able to visit North Korea, he would like to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and discuss a peace treaty between the United States and the North, and a complete denuclearization of North Korea," Park Han-shik, professor of international affairs at the University of Georgia, said in an interview published by South Korea's JoongAng Daily on Tuesday. Park claimed that Carter visited his...

    Saddam Hussein's government provided senior Russian officials with oil rights worth millions of dollars under the oil-for-food program in an effort to lift U.N. sanctions against Iraq, according to a U.S. Senate Committee report released on Monday. The oil allocations were "compensation for support," Vice President Taha Yasin Ramadan told the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. The report, based on documents as well as interviews with Ramadan and Tareq Aziz, the former deputy prime minister, pointed to Alexander Voloshin, former chief of staff to President Vladimir Putin in the Russian Presidential Council, and ultranationalist parliamentarian Vladimir Zhirinovsky. Both men had...

    Former US President Jimmy Carter said the US works more like an "oligarchy than a democracy," while also lambasting Trump's “hopeless” approach to solving the Israel-Palestine issue, and the increasing tension with North Korea. The former president was speaking at a ‘Conversation with the Carters’ event at his Carter Center in Atlanta on Tuesday. He said money in politics is what makes the US more like an oligarchy – run by a small group of rich people – rather than a democracy, AP reports. This isn’t the first time the 39th president has made such comments. In 2015, he referred...

    ATLANTA - Former United States President Jimmy Carter released a statement Thursday after the recent comments made back and forth between United States officials and North Korea. Here is the statement: ======================================================= "The harsh rhetoric from Washington and Pyongyang during recent months has exacerbated an already confrontational relationship between our countries, and has probably eliminated any chance of good faith peace talks between the United States and North Korea. In addition to restraining the warlike rhetoric, our leaders need to encourage talks between North Korea and other countries, especially China and Russia. The recent UN Security Council unanimous vote for...
