    An "article" posted Thursday by Jeva Lange at The Week blatantly lies about Ted Cruz. And it is not the first time Lange has mischaracterized Cruz's words. The post, titled "Ted Cruz mistakenly claims Jimmy Carter endorsed Donald Trump," gives the reader the false impression that Ted Cruz said former President Jimmy Carter would vote for Donald Trump. Lange writes: ...

    Former President Jimmy Carter has weighed in on the 2016 presidential race. Taking off from his campaign to eradicate Guinea worm disease, Carter responded to a question put to him by a BBC reporter about who he would prefer on the Republican side. Donald Trump, he said, because he is “completely malleable,” unlike that Ted Cruz fellow who has all of those right-wing policies he would enact as president.

    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."

    Former President Jimmy Carter said Wednesday that if he had to choose, he'd pick Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump over rival Ted Cruz, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. At a lecture in Britain's House of Lords on Wednesday, Carter was asked to give his “assessment” of American politics. After talking about his own victory in the 1976 Democratic presidential caucuses, he went on to say that Trump would be a better option than Cruz. If he had to choose between them, “I think I would choose Trump, which may surprise some of you,” he said. “The reason is, Trump has proven...

The official, however, expects the situation to be resolved quickly. A senior administration official said there is nothing to indicate this was anything hostile on the part of any entity in Iran, adding that the U.S. has received high-level assurances that the sailors will be released promptly. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told CNN's Jake Tapper that President Barack Obama will be in touch with members of Congress about the incident. "Certainly,...

We've made every effort to obtain their release on honorable, peaceful, and humanitarian terms, but the Iranians have refused to release them or even to improve the inhumane conditions under which these Americans are being held captive. It must be made clear that the failure to release the hostages will involve increasingly heavy costs to Iran and to its interests. I have today ordered the following steps.

    When the news broke on Monday, Dec. 7 that Jimmy Carter, who recently disclosed he had a serious and likely-fatal form of cancer, suddenly had 'no evidence of cancer,' Carter-watchers went a little crazy. 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...

The Republican front-runner proclaimed that the only proper course for America to take in the wake of the San Bernardino attack was to bar further Muslim immigration into the country until “we know what the hell is going on.” The reaction, from all corners of the political sphere, was hyperbolic. Liberals took the hyperventilation up to 11 and officially decided that Trump literally is the second coming of Adolf Hitler. That response was probably...

Scheduled to last 45 minutes, it'll be Carter's first in-depth comments on his health since announcing last week that cancer is spreading through his body. Carter had a "small mass" removed from his liver in an early-August surgical procedure. Carter, elected in 1976 and ousted in the 1980 election by Ronald Reagan, has a family history of pancreatic cancer -- a disease that claimed...
  • Politico's Michael Hirsh: Why Can't the Jews See Obama, Carter Have 'Saved' Israel?

    Former Newsweek reporter Michael Hirsh is now with Politico, but one consistent threat of his writing has been a fondness for the foreign policy doves. His latest Politico piece on the Iran deal is headlined Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama and the Jews: Why does Americas Jewish community always condemn the presidents who save Israel? One can imagine Israelis doing a spit take on that headline. This is the same Jimmy Carter who wrote a book trashing Israel for having a racist apartheid system that oppresses the Palestinians. They'd also worry this only inflates Carter's massive ego.

    Former president Jimmy Carter said Tuesday on the nationally syndicated radio show the Thom Hartmann Program that the United States is now an oligarchy in which unlimited political bribery has created a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors. Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Carter was responding to a question from Hartmann about recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign financing like Citizens United.

    From Progressives Today: Republicans and conservatives are the enemy. They are expendable. They will be targets in the Revolution when it comes writes Roland Windsor Vincent, in a recent post on his blog, Army Of The Revolution. The entry, entitled Protect Animals And The Environment. Shoot Republicans, centers around animal rights and how active Republican and conservatives voters are enabling the Animal Holocaust and If we were to start shooting Republicans, we would likely not harm a single friend of animals or the environment. You hear about something like this and you want to think of it as an anomaly....

    Wednesday on The Stephanie Miller Show, former President Jimmy Carter said because of the stupid Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United case, America has become a plutocracy. Carter said, The basic structure of our moral values of the framework of our democracy has gone down the drain in the last twenty years or so and its now become pretty much a plutocracy where money determines who will be the Democratic and Republican nominees. Money determines who will win election for Congress or for the U.S. Senate or for the governorship And the massive infusion of money that has come...

    Can we all just agree that the sooner Jimmy Carter stops getting involved in national and international discussions, the better off well all be? This is the man who has demonized Israel in the fight against Islamic extremism. This is the man who has sided with every failed policy of the left for the last 40+ years. This is the man, who, before Barack Obama, had guided us into the worst economic times our nation had seen since the Great Depression. Cant Jimmy just retire already?He recently appeared on MSNBCs Morning Joe. The former President is probably most well known...

    snip I believe Jesus would, Carter said when asked whether Jesus would approve of gay marriage. I dont have any verse in scripture ... I believe that Jesus would approve gay marriage, but that's just my own personal belief. I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else, and I don't see that gay marriage damages anyone else." Carter, a born-again Christian and Baptist, said he still teaches Sunday school whenever he attends his home church. He. said he has never ran across any really serious conflicts between...

    After proclaiming John Kerry "one of the best secretaries of state we've ever had," Carter dumped cold water on Obama's record abroad. "On the world stage, I think [Obama's accomplishments] have been minimal," Carter said. "I think he has done some good things domestically, like health reform and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it, I can't think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than when he took over."
