    LIFE AFTER TERROR By JOSEPH F. CONNOR YOU sometimes hear how the first World Trade Center attack was a warning that the city ig nored. But it wasn't the first: Tomorrow is the 30th anniversary of the New York terrorist attack that killed my father, Frank T. Connor ó the Jan. 24, 1975, bombing of Fraunces Tavern. The killers struck on a warm, clear and pleasant winter's day. My dad, a 33-year-old officer of Morgan Guaranty Trust, was having lunch with clients. The bomb killed him and three others in unspeakably gruesome ways. One of his colleagues was decapitated; silverware...

    American Thinker ^ | December 30, 2016 | A.J. Caschetta
    Perhaps sensing that he would soon have to relinquish his position as Americaís worst ex-president, Jimmy Carter reminded everyone last month how he earned the title with yet another call for the U.S. to recognize a Palestinian state. Carterís call is a departure from American diplomacy, which insists, per UN Resolution 338, that an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement can only be reached through negotiations ďbetween the parties.Ē Carterís presidency was mired in bad foreign policy decisions, and his post-presidency has been marred with excusing terrorism, attempting to revise history, and meddling in the affairs of every subsequent occupant of the White...

    We do not yet know the policy of the next administration toward Israel and Palestine, but we do know the policy of this administration. . .I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short. The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership. . .

    Bill and Hillary Clinton haven't committed themselves to attending Donald Trump's inauguration, which looms less than a month away, after a bruising campaign that left the Democratic nominee and her former-president husband with bloodied reputations at Trump's hands.

    Jimmy Carter is the only former president who has confirmed that he will attend the inauguration of Donald Trump on 20 January 2017. Earlier this month, Carter who had endorsed Hillary Clinton in the race to the White House, said at his Sunday school class in Georgia that he would attend the ceremony. According to Politico, Bill Clinton and George W Bush will decide whether to attend the inauguration in the New Year. A source familiar with Bush told Politico that he is still weighing in on whether to attend the ceremony or not.

In August 2015, Carter announced that his aggressive melanoma ó a deadly form of skin cancer ó had spread to his brain, and it seemed pretty clear that he had only a few weeks left to live.

    As Barack Obamaís tenure comes to a close, political analysts are already drawing comparisons between the current administration and that of Jimmy Carterís. Both proved to be exceedingly inept at dealing with emerging foreign crises, both were harshly and unfairly critical of Israel and both betrayed loyal allies, utilizing all methods available to undermine friends while propping up hostile foes. The personification of this doctrine is best illustrated by that manner in which both administrations empowered and emboldened the mullahs of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Islamic fundamentalist takeover of Iran in 1979 was a disastrous occurrence that was...

The consensus forming this year however is an ominously dangerous one - ominously dangerous to conservatives themselves that is.

    In 1979, after a long campaign of political pressure applied by the Carter administration in the United States, the Shah of Iran fell to the Islamic Revolution, ending a tradition of monarchic rule that had persisted in Iran for thousands of years since the rule of Cyrus the Great. The stage was set for the rise of the Ayatollah, and the establishment of a theocracy in Iran that, today, most Iranians do not even want. But what if none of that had ever happened? While a momentous departure from actual history, it is not nearly so far-fetched as it sounds....

    Prior to the late 20th century, the venerable civilization of Iran had virtually always existed under a monarchic government. This was a long tradition of the Iranian people, stretching all the back to Cyrus the Great. That all changed in 1979, when, after thousands of years of monarchy, the King (called the Shah) of Iran was overthrown, and a powerful Islamic cleric called Ruhollah Khomeini rose to the new position of Ayatollah (supreme leader). That much is settled history. What has not been so clear since the Islamic Revolution, however, were the specific feelings and actions of then-US President Jimmy...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is using video of former President Jimmy Carter against rival Donald Trump. A new ad released Thursday quotes Carter, who said Wednesday that if he had to pick between the two, he "would choose Trump" over Cruz. "Trump has proven already that he's completely malleable," Carter, a Democrat, continues in the clip. "I don't think he has any fixed opinions that he would really go to the White House and fight for. Ted Cruz is not malleable."

If he had to choose between them, ‚ÄúI think I would choose Trump, which may surprise some of you,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúThe reason is, Trump has proven...

    So first I thought this endorsement was a big boom (for Ted). Then I was convinced there was nothing bigger than this un-endorsement. Then Kasich got this amazing counter endorsement. But those were all just the warmup. THIS .. THIS is the one. If he had to choose between Cruz and Trump for the Republican nomination, Carter chuckled, ‚ÄúI think I would choose Trump, which may surprise some of you.‚ÄĚ(It did, judging by the loud laughter from the audience.)‚ÄúThe reason is, Trump has proven already he's completely malleable,‚ÄĚ Carter explained. ‚ÄúI don't think he has any fixed (positions) he‚Äôd...
