  • How Carter Undermined the Shah of Iran

    FSM ^ | 6/15/16 | Slater Bakhtavar
    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...

    As a Democratic presidential candidate, you know you are in tough shape when other Democrats are publicly calling your actions as Secretary of State worse than Watergate. Appearing on Breitbart News on Sirius XM, pollster and strategist former President Jimmy Carter, Pat Caddell, told host Stephen Bannon, just that. “This is the greatest scandal in the history of the United States,” he said. “They all ought to be indicted. This is worse than Watergate.” If you are unfamiliar with Watergate, it is probably the most infamous scandal that is attributed to President Richard Nixon, and caused the former president to...

    In an interview on Monday, former President Jimmy Carter spoke of a resurgence of open racism, saying, “I don’t feel good, except for one thing: I think the country has been reawakened the last two or three years to the fact that we haven’t resolved the race issue adequately.” Carter laid the racism at the feet of the Republican Party, saying that criticism of President Obama had “a heavy racial overtone” and that Donald Trump had “tapped a waiting reservoir there of inherent racism.” It seems as if the peanut president is simply saddened by the fact that Obama’s policies...

    A TALE OF TWO OBITUARIES By Burt Prelutsky, 6/4/2016 I assumed I would have to wait until Jimmy Carter, 91, died before the outpouring of love and respect over the passing of a public figure would make me quite this nauseous, but, then, I hadn’t counted on Muhammad Ali passing at the age of 74. Ali was a very good boxer. Some have insisted he was the best, while others have claimed Joe Louis or Sugar Ray Robinson were better. For the record, let me confess that in my opinion, being a boxing champion ranks near the bottom of the...

    Former President Jimmy Carter believes U.S. intelligence agencies are spying on him — so much so, he eschews email to avoid government spies. "You know, I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored," Carter told NBC's Andrea Mitchell in an interview broadcast Sunday. "And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write a letter myself, put it in the post office and mail it. "I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored," Carter continued. The 89-year-old said the National Security Agency and others have abused the argument that gathering...

    If you had a decent history teacher in high school, you were taught that European democracies are slightly different from those in the Americas, both north and south. Democracies in this Western Hemisphere tend to be ethnic stews governed, with varying degrees of faithfulness, by constitutions and compacts. European democracies are built around nationalities — tribes of same-language peoples. A President Donald Trump and his “great again” appeals would push us closer toward the European model than we already are, his critics contend. If they’re right, a heightened season of racial tension could be in our Southern future. Some of...

    Jimmy Carter said Monday that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had tapped into "inherent racism" to bolster his candidacy. In an interview with The New York Times, Carter, the 39th president, also said Trump violated "basic human rights" by labeling Mexican and Muslim immigrants as criminals and terrorists. "When you single out any particular group of people for secondary citizenship status, that's a violation of basic human rights," Carter said. The 91-year-old Carter won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for promoting human rights across the globe through his work with the Carter Center. Carter, the oldest living US...

The writing is on the wall that Hillary is most likely guilty of [at a minimum] unintentional espionage and probably much worse and it looks like an indictment at this point is imminent. There’s no doubt that the democratic establishment is also aware of this inevitability and is beginning to hedge their bets, albeit behind closed doors. It’s only a matter of time before the majority of the DNC begins to realize that Hillary is a liability to the party and once this tipping point occurs, establishment democrats will defect en masse like rats from...

    The quislings who want to run a stooge like Mitt Romney Third Party to elect Hillary Clinton are selfish enemies of our freedom. Nevertheless, what they want to do will fail and they will be disgraced. In 1980 the Republican establishment hated Ronald Reagan every bit as much as they hate Donald Trump today. We didn’t know much about this because there was little reliable coverage by a media which, then as now, hated all Republicans. They ignored most of what went on except anything they could be used to hurt Republicans. For those who are unaware of the history...

    Whenever Donald Trump and his followers are confronted with his evidence of his abysmally terrible polling numbers on personal favorability and versus Hillary Clinton, they typically respond with a pair of deflections. First, they say that Trump "hasn't even started" attacking Hillary yet. Setting aside the fact that Trump has taken many hard jabs at Mrs. Clinton over a span of months, this line of thinking requires a logical leap: That once he does train virtually all of his fire on her, it will both hurt her and help him. American voters have been subjected to endlessTrump coverage since last spring, over...

    Hamas-loving former US President Jimmy Carter is now cancer free thanks to a cancer drug developed by a joint US-Israeli team. This is from the first link. Carter announced in August that he had been diagnosed with melanoma that had spread to his brain and laid out a treatment plan, including a round of targeted radiation at the brain tumors and doses of an immune-boosting drug every three weeks. Keytruda, the drug, was approved not long before Carter's announcement and helps his body seek out and destroy cancer cells. Carter's spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said in an email that Carter...

Some people, of course, were thrilled to hear that the former U.S. president was no longer at death's door. Others, especially strong pro-Israel activists were aghast when they read in a widely-circulated news article, that Keytruda, the drug credited for Carter's health turnaround, was developed in Israel. Carter is widely-reviled as a virulent and relentless basher of Israel. A 2014 article in YNet described Keytruda as...

    Trump is a monster, a madman and a vile racist. He's just like Hitler. Or Jimmy Carter. During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency. Here's Jimmy "Hitler" Carter saying it back in 1980. Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue...

    Former US president Jimmy Carter announced that he was cancer-free on Sunday, just four months after revealing that doctors had found four spots of melanoma on his brain. “My most recent MRI brain scan did not reveal any signs of the original cancer spots nor any new ones,” Carter said in a statement on Sunday. “I will continue to receive regular 3-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab,” he added, referring to a common cancer drug. Carter, 91, first shared the news with worshippers at the Baptist church in Georgia where he teaches Bible study on Sunday. The news was confirmed by...

    Former president Jimmy Carter told a large Sunday school class he was teaching that he is cancer-free, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Sunday morning. The news site quoted a close friend and fellow church member at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga., as saying that he made the announcement at the start of the 300-person class. "He said he got a scan this week and the cancer was gone," the Journal-Constitution quoted Jill Stuckey as saying. "The church, everybody here, just erupted in applause."

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. Former Democratic President Woodrow Wilson may be purged from his alma mater, Princeton University. The old “Schoolmaster of Politics”, as he was known for his academic background at Cornell, Bryn Mawr, Wesleyan and finally president of Princeton U, has been thrown under the bus by its current president for being a politically incorrect progressive. Also known as a plain old racist. Woody was indeed a racist. Though even on his worst day he was still about 40% less racist than...

    OMG! Ted Cruz is anti-gun or something! Its so beyond laughable. FYI, Gizmodo, thats how the hunter safety course TELLS YOU TO CARRY A BREAK ACTION!But lets point out how they never got their panties in a bunch over past politicians shall we… Sure do hope its unloaded…Again, sure do hope its unloaded…You NEVER point the gun at the ground when you are hunting with dogs…And a second before: Sure hope its unloaded…Also, the classic finger on the trigger not looking where the gun is pointed…Liberals probably dont have a problem with this because its not an evil firearm…

    Over at the Daily Caller, our friend Kerry Picket has dug up an interesting tidbit regarding the debates. In this case, however, we’re not talking about the ongoing primary debates taking place between Republicans or Democrats, but rather the general election debates to come next autumn. At this point we can assume with a fair amount of certainty that one of the participants on the stage will be Hillary Clinton representing the Democrats. So when it comes time to set up those debates, establish the format, select the moderators and what not, it sure might be helpful to have...

    I HAVE known Bashar al-Assad, the president of Syria, since he was a college student in London, and have spent many hours negotiating with him since he has been in office. This has often been at the request of the United States government during those many times when our ambassadors have been withdrawn from Damascus because of diplomatic disputes. Bashar and his father, Hafez, had a policy of not speaking to anyone at the American Embassy during those periods of estrangement, but they would talk to me.

    Don’t dismiss the soft-spoken neurosurgeon’s presidential prospects. Carson’s a better bet to survive the opening round of primaries than Donald Trump. With an­ger at Wash­ing­ton and ca­reer politi­cians at his­tor­ic levels, a mild-mannered out­sider starts catch­ing mo­mentum des­pite be­ing viewed as a na­ive novice. His un­soph­ist­ic­ated per­son­al­ity draws mock­ery from polit­ic­al in­siders, but does little to dent his poll num­bers. His ap­peal to evan­gel­ic­al voters gives him an in­side track in the Iowa caucuses, even as it makes party lead­ers un­com­fort­able. His re­cord is at­tacked as ex­treme, even with­in his own party. Yet he holds sig­ni­fic­ant leads in early gen­er­al-elec­tion...
