    Gerald R. Ford (Republican) v. Jimmy Carter (Democrat) The 1976 presidential election was the first held in the wake of the Watergate scandal, which had consumed the Nixon presidency and resulted in Gerald R. Ford becoming president. Ford had first become Vice President by congressional confirmation in the wake of Vice President Sprio Agnew's own corruption scandal and resignation, resutling in the first American president who had not been elected to be either president or vice president. Ford, the Republican candidate, was pitted against the relatively unknown former 1-term governor of Georgia, Jimmy Cater. Carter ran as a Washington outsider,...

    Chennedy Carter refused to explain - or answer questions about - her brutal bodycheck on Caitlin Clark following the Indiana Fever's WNBA victory over the Chicago Sky on Saturday. Carter shoved Clark to the ground, with television replays appearing to show her yelling 'you b***h' at Clark before knocking her rival to the ground.

    Former President Jimmy Carter hasn’t seen any “significant change” in his health, despite his grandson warning again this week that the 99-year-old’s life was “coming to the end,” according to the director of the former commander in chief’s namesake nonprofit organization. Carter remains “at home, enjoying peanut butter ice cream and getting the food he wants any time he wants it,” Carter Center CEO Paige Alexander told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Politically Georgia podcast Wednesday. “It’s 15 months of hospice at this point, and he is fully retired,” Alexander explained. “There really hasn’t been a significant change. I mean, he will...

    Jimmy Carter's grandson has revealed the 99-year-old former president is 'coming to the end'. The Georgia peanut farmer and oldest living president has been in hospice care for more than a year after deciding to forego any further medical treatment. Since then his beloved wife Rosalynn has passed away and he has been living at home with regular visits from his family. Jason Carter said at a mental health forum on Tuesday: '(My grandfather) is doing OK. 'He has been in hospice, as you know, for almost a year and a half now, and he really is, I think, coming...

    The Pioneer ^ | Saturday, May 4, 2024 | Bhopinder Singh
    OPINION China’s recent outcry over the alleged breach of ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’ with the Philippines reveals a profound irony, given the history of its coercion and deceit There is a huge amount of insincerity and gall involved in the Chinese complaint that the Philippines had torn up the bilateral ‘Gentleman’s Agreement,’ between Beijing and Manila. While the term ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’ has an implicit assumption of ‘trust’ as a fundamental tenet besting a relationship, which may otherwise not be legally binding -- to even imagine that there has been any element of ‘trust’ between these two sparing countries, is to put oneself...

    Rep. John Carter (R-TX) says anti-Israel protesters “vandalized” one of his offices in Texas and vowed to find the “parties responsible.” Carter posted a photo on X on Monday, showing red paint splattered across his office door with the words “Free Gaza” written in what appeared to be red graffiti on the sidewalk in front of the office. “Unhinged anti-Israel activists vandalized my Georgetown office. Let me make 2 things clear, my support for Israel is unwavering & your intimidation won’t work,” Carter wrote. “Secondly, the parties responsible will be found & will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of...

    Former President Donald Trump argued Tuesday that Jimmy Carter had a “brilliant presidency” compared to successor Joe Biden, deriding his 2024 opponent as the “worst president” in American history. “Biden is the worst president in the history of our country,” Trump, 77, told reporters outside a bodega in Harlem where clerk Jose Alba infamously stabbed an ex-con to death in self-defense two years ago. “Jimmy Carter’s happy because he’s had a brilliant presidency compared to Biden,” Trump added “Worse than Jimmy Carter by a long shot,” the presumptive Republican nominee for president declared.

    “Biden Gets China,” headlined the January 2, 2012 report in The Atlantic. As author Steve Clemons explained, “Vice President Joe Biden will take the lead on the administrations next phase China policy.” This marked a shift to a “strategy of engagement with Biden at the top,” that allows the US to deal with China’s likely next president from a Vice President to a Vice President/Next President status -- and to continue both the Departments of State’s and Treasury’s ongoing engagement with other designated key Chinese leaders.” As Clemons explained, the move to put Biden at the top was “orchestrated” by...

    When President Biden and former President Donald Trump face off in an election rematch this November, one man will remain a one-term president. Trump, a Republican whom Biden unseated in 2020, seeks to return the favor in 2024 as the incumbent Democratic president struggles with lackluster approval ratings reminiscent of infamous one-term president Jimmy Carter. As of February, Biden's job approval rating stood at 38% in a Gallup poll — less than one point above President Carter's record-low Gallup rating of 37.4% after his third year in office. There is reason to believe that Biden today is in a weaker...

    Last month, former President Jimmy Carter marked one year in hospice. After entering end-of-life care in February 2023, he celebrated his 99th birthday and grieved the death of his wife of 77 years and former first lady, Rosalynn Carter. Even then, Carter was able — with help — to attend her funeral. Even at the end of life, the nation’s longest-living president — someone who “practically no one ever thought” would be elected president, writes the New York Times’ Peter Baker — is defying the odds. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 90% of patients who enter...

    President Joe Biden’s average job approval rating across his third year in office languished at the lowest point of any U.S. president since Jimmy Carter was in the White House, a Gallup poll released Thursday shows. Biden’s third year extended from Jan. 20, 2023, to Jan. 19, 2024 during which time he had an average job approval rating of 39.8 percent, the Gallup poll reveals. The Hill points out Biden, whose current job approval rating is 41 percent, fared the worst in polls of all presidents’ ratings since Carter, whose third-year polling average was 37.4 percent before he went on...

    Former President Trump mocked former President Carter on Monday during his Iowa caucus victory speech, appearing to take a dig at Carter in the wake of his wife’s death. “My wife attended the funeral two months ago of Rosalynn Carter. And it was beautiful. Jimmy Carter was there,” Trump said. “I thought to myself, Jimmy Carter is happy now, because he will go down as a brilliant president by comparison to Joe Biden.” ~snip~ Democratic advocacy organization American Bridge 21st Century denounced the Trump comments as “cruel” Tuesday. “Donald Trump has operated the same way his entire four decades in...

    resident Joe Biden ends 2023 with his polling numbers still in the doldrums - worse than any other president at the same stage of their first term - as he prepares for an election next year with voters still worrying about the state of the economy. And that is despite his overall approval rating ticking up slightly. The latest tracking number from Gallup, published Friday, puts Biden's job approval rating at 39 percent, up two points from lows in October and November. That is worse than the last seven presidents in history as they came to the end of their...

  • Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks Mocked for Singing ‘Atheist Anthem’ ‘Imagine’ at Devotedly Christian Roselyn Carter’s Funeral

    Superstar country music couple Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks performed an odd song to sing at former first lady Rosalynn Carter’s funeral on Tuesday with John Lennon’s anti-religious, left-wing themed song “Imagine,” even though Carter was a devout Southern Baptist Christian. The singers, dressed all in black, performed an acoustic rendition of the vapid Lennon song which contains the lyrics “Imagine there’s no Heaven,” “No hell below us Above us, only sky,” and “Imagine… no religion, too.” The pair delivered a nice recitation of the popular, left-wing dream tune, certainly. But to sing that there is no heaven and no...

Jason Carter delivered one of many tributes to Rosalynn Carter, eliciting laughter regularly during some of the lighter moments in the day’s proceedings, including when he acknowledged each of the living first ladies in the audience.

    As a regime that for more than forty years has sponsored violent abduction, hostage taking, kidnapping, blackmail, piracy, assassination, warmongering, and oppression, the Iranian dictatorship has no equal. They have plowed men and resources into proxy wars in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, and Gaza. They have openly backed terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas. Through the extra-territorial Quds Force wing of their Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), they have directed extremist operations throughout the Middle East and further afield, even sending registered diplomats on terror missions. Now, they are supplying kamikaze drones to Russia for use in their illegal war...

    Melania Trump is poised to be among a group of all the living former first ladies — including Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush — to attend a tribute service this week honoring Rosalynn Carter. The ex-model and wife of former President Trump was on a list of expected guests released Monday by the Carter Center. Carter, who marked her 77th wedding anniversary with former President Carter in July, died last week at 96. In addition to the former first ladies, President Biden, first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff are all slated to...

The former president reflected on her immeasurable impact on his life in a statement shared by The Carter Center Sunday. “Rosalynn was my equal partner in everything I ever accomplished,” Carter said. “She gave me wise guidance and encouragement when I needed it. As long as Rosalynn was in the world, I always knew somebody loved and supported me.”
