    You may ask yourself, is it worth one of the best American non-fiction writers producing a book of just under 600 pages on an arrogant and abrasive egotist whose highest sustained rank in the State Department was that of a lowly assistant secretary? The answer is unabashedly yes. This is a remarkable work about a remarkable, if deeply flawed, statesman whose career was intimately intertwined with the 50 years of American decline from Vietnam to Afghanistan. Nearly all biographies have long, boring stretches you want to skip. This one has none. The access to Richard Holbrooke’s papers and to the...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg (BOO’-tuh-juhj) and his husband, Chasten Glezman, joined the large crowd at former President Jimmy Carter’s Sunday school class in rural South Georgia. At Carter’s invitation Buttigieg stood and read from the Bible as part of the lesson at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains. “You know him?” Carter had said earlier in reference to Buttigieg, drawing a laugh from the crowd. Carter told the audience that two other Democratic presidential candidates, Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, had previously attended his classes. Scores of people arrived before dawn for a chance...

    President Donald Trump made a rare phone call to one of the few men who ever has been in his position: former President Jimmy Carter. It was the first telephone conversation between the two members of the exclusive president's club and focused on US-China trade negotiations, the White House confirmed in a statement, which referred to the correspondence as a "very good telephone conversation." Carter wrote Trump "a beautiful letter" about the ongoing negotiations, the White House said, and the presidents also discussed "numerous other topics." "The President has always liked President Carter and first lady Rosalynn Carter, and extended...

    PARIS, France (AFP) — Forty years ago Egypt and Israel signed the first ever peace treaty between the Jewish state and an Arab nation, upturning Middle East diplomatic and military relations. The March 26, 1979 Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty sealed accords which had been settled the previous year at a groundbreaking summit at Camp David, near Washington, between Egypt’s President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. Signed in a landmark Washington ceremony overseen by US President Jimmy Carter, it ended three decades of warring between the neighbors and remains in place today.
  • Judge overseeing key Jeffrey Epstein-related suit dies

    An elderly federal judge presiding over a key lawsuit relating to financier pedophile Jeffrey Epstein died Sunday, adding another twist to the drawn-out legal saga and to efforts to unseal still-secret details about the conduct of Epstein, his enablers and one of his accusers. Manhattan-based U.S. District Court Judge Robert Sweet passed away Sunday at age 96, the court announced. Sweet was appointed by President Jimmy Carter in 1978, confirmed that same year and continued to hear and rule on cases through the last few months.

    Given that Mika Brzezinski's late father Zbigniew served as Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, you knew that Morning Joe would go out of its way to celebrate Carter on the occasion of his becoming the oldest living former President. And sure enough, on today's show, Joe Scarborough glorified Carter as an "extraordinary human being, a wonderful man," working in a gratuitous swipe at President Trump by adding, "just a great contrast with, unfortunately, what we're struggling through right now." Scarborough commended Carter for Camp David, and even claimed that his support for human rights contributed to the fall of the...

    With Trump’s Deal of the Century in the offing, an anti-Israel legal opinion in the State Department has surfaced, which outlaws all Israeli communities over the Green Line. CUFI, which speaks for 4 million Christians, as well as the RCA and ZOA, are urging the Administration to rescind the controversial document. The fear is that Israel will be in a disadvantageous position if the "Deal of the Century" is published and an official pro-Arab legal opinion, negating all settlements, remains intact. Pro-Israel organizations call for the opinion, also known as the Hansell memorandum, to be rescinded, while BDS organizations are...

    Democratic Pollster Patrick Caddell, who was credited with helping get Jimmy Carter elected president, but also with limiting him to one term, died Saturday from complications of a stroke at his home in Charleston, S.C., The New York Times reports. He was 68. Caddell, a self-taught pollster, was considered instrumental in Carter's victory in 1976, but he also persuaded the president to make the speech that became known as the "malaise" speech that branded him as weak and ended up costing him the 1980 election to Republican Ronald Reagan.

    “It is frightening how people’s lives are damaged, I mean, are thrown away,” stated Caddell. “Everybody is roadkill when it comes to their desire to succeed in their goal, which is to beat Kavanaugh, whether it destroys him, his family, whatever — whether the charges are real or spurious. … [This will cause] people to not want to be in public life. Who wants this done to them? All in the name of a political goal.” Caddell described Senate Republicans as acquiescing to partisan pressures from Democrats and Democrats’ news media allies.

    During Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio, pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell weighed in on the 2018 midterm elections and said it was pretty obvious Democrats would “make an effort to impeach” President Donald Trump if they took the House. “I’m not sure this is an ordinary midterm, any more than 2016 was an ordinary presidential election. I believe we have yet to see this election engaged,” Caddell told host John Catsimatidis. “And it should be a national election. It will be nationalized. One of the issues is going to be impeachment. I don’t think...

    Caddell also discussed Trump’s victory in November and its impact on Washington. Said Caddell regarding concerns he had immediately after Trump’s win, “The great concern for the Trump administration is that it’s a Trump White House but is this going to be a Ryan government?” “Is this going to be,” he added, “where they use him to impose what they want to do rather than supporting what he got elected to do?” Caddell said he still worries about that and believe events unfolding around the healthcare bill are an example of that.
