  • Clay & Buck' rip 'Jimmy Carter without the accomplishments' Biden for failing families coping with inflation

    The hosts of the "Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show" hammered President Biden as "Jimmy Carter without the accomplishments" as he continues to deflect blame for massive inflation on Vladimir Putin and Trump supporters. Travis commented that inflation is essentially a "default tax" every American is forced to pay when economic conditions plummet. He said Biden disingenuously claims to be "Middle-Class Joe From Scranton" who supposedly "cares about families." The Electric City, in Pennsylvania's coal region, has long been identified with its industrial, middle-class history.

    Former President Carter is taking the rare step of weighing in on judicial proceedings, saying that an appeals court is misinterpreting a conservation law he signed. On Monday, Carter filed a briefing chastising a ruling that upheld a Trump-era decision to build a road through a national wildlife refuge in order to enable medical evacuations nearby.
  • Pinkerton: Carter 2.0 – Media Runs Interference for Joe Just Like They Did for Jimmy by Claiming He’s the Best We Can Hope for

    Now that Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen—it’s hovering in the low 40s, and it can’t get up—the Main Stream Media have come up with a new line of defense for their man. Okay, goes this new line, Biden isn’t doing so well, but that’s to be expected—because no president can do well. That is, the problems are just too tough, the job is just too hard, the country is just too polarized, yada yada yada.
  • Resurfaced SNL Video of Dan Akroyd Mocking Jimmy Carter’s Inflation Comes Back to Haunt the Biden-Harris Regime [VIDEO]

    This would be funny if it weren’t hitting the average American so hard in the pocketbook and in their quality of life. A video from 1978 – back in the day when it was legal to poke fun at Democrats — shows legendary comedian Dan Akroyd of “Saturday Night Live” fame playing failed Democrat President Jimmy Carter, who is desperately trying to explain away his failed policies and why the massive inflation he caused is somehow a positive thing. “Inflation is our friend,” Akroyd begins, mimicking the Southern accent of Carter begins. “For example, consider this; In the year 2000,...

    Let’s play Carter-era Throwback Thursday again, that’s always fun. The clothes of course were smashing,but the politics even more so. Forty years from now I suspect they’ll be saying the same thing about the Biden era.Coordinated facemasks all the rageIf, that is, anyone talks about it at all.Just like it’s hard today to find people who openly admit to having voted for Carter (twice!), I’m betting there won’t be many Millennials who will admit to having voting for Biden.And for many of the same reasons. Biden is looking to break Jimmy’s records in taxes, inflation, interest rates and cost of...
  • Historian says Biden could be saved from Carter-esque foreign failure through Ukrainians' heroism

    Until recently, former Democratic President Jimmy Carter might have been seen as the worst president in terms of American foreign policy, having ushered in the Iranian hostage crisis and a rapidly destabilizing Middle East. With the Biden administration's reticence to proactively help Ukraine, one historian told Fox News the Ukrainian president's and his people's heroism could have a tangential effect on helping Biden's widely-criticized behavior.

    During an appearance on FNC’s “Watters’ World,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) lamented the failures of Joe Biden’s presidency, adding that the governing coalition of Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was the worst in his lifetime. Graham also hammered Biden on foreign policy by claiming former President Jimmy Carter, considered by some to be a disastrous president on foreign policy, looked like former President Ronald Reagan, who hailed as a success, compared to Biden.

    Vice President Kamala Harris acknowledged a “level of malaise” among Americans — and channeled one of the lowest moments of Jimmy Carter’s presidency — in an interview this week. “I fully appreciate that there is a level of malaise,” Harris said Thursday during an appearance on “PBS Newshour,” in answer to a question about why President Joe Biden’s social spending agenda has stalled.

    Joe Biden is the gift that keeps on giving. The gift, that is, of parallels with fellow Democrat Jimmy Carter. Most Americans have no memories of the actual Carter presidency, from 1977 to 1981, but this Baby Boomer sure does. As for you youngins, you can can look him up, and you’ll see too: He was terrible in office. So terrible, in fact, that when he ran for re-election in 1980, he was thunderously defeated, losing to Ronald Reagan by almost ten points in the popular vote and by 489 to 49 in the electoral college.

    On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Velshi,” Rep. Troy Carter (D-LA) argued that if the races in the Ahmaud Arbery case were reversed, “there wouldn’t have even been media about it. There would have been a conviction in the media and a conviction in the court and it probably would not have had the level of deliberation.”

    In the 1980 presidential campaign, the Republican challenger, Ronald Reagan, said, "A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his." The Gipper turned out to be correct. The gale-force winds of rising inflation had knocked working-class people to the ground, with paychecks shrinking month after month. Reagan wound up winning a landslide victory, and Carter was bounced out of office. The middle class hates inflation. The New York Times recently surmised that the effects of inflation are mostly "psychological," and that people should appreciate that...

    I once looked forward to Throwback Thursdays. But lately for some odd reason all that comes to mind in the “throwback” department are thoughts of Jimmy Carter’s 70s: when Iran was calling the shots and threatening Americans with extinction, gas lines were interminable and hyperinflation a fact of life. You know, the good old days before we even had electric cars so it was harder to pretend we didn’t need fossil fuels at all (h/t Jennifer Granholm). Although in the spirit of TT you may recall that Jimmy did his best, in his Crisis of Confidence Speech, to convince us...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” Rep. Troy Carter (D-LA) argued that the impact of inflation on people “will be eased when we start to invigorate our economy, and we invigorate our economy by pumping money into it to stimulate it.” Carter disagreed with [relevant remarks begin around 3:15] “the notion that somehow the Build Back Better or the infrastructure plan will negatively impact inflation,” because there have been “several Nobel Peace Prize economists who vehemently disagree with that. Listen, when people make more money, they spend more money. When you make money, it...

    There’s a long-standing tradition among conservative pols and gabbers to compare every Democratic president to Jimmy Carter. It’s hardly surprising: Carter was the first and last sitting Democratic president since the 19th century to lose a general election. His presidency, moreover, led to a sort of Republican golden age with the landslide election (and 49-state reelection) of Ronald Reagan and the first Republican-controlled Senate since the early 1950s. It was natural for many pundits to compare the southern governor Bill Clinton and the foreign-policy novice Barack Obama to the 39th president, and Republicans, of course, loved to point to signs...

    Want proof that the Biden administration is really the second incarnation of the Carter administration? We have runaway inflation, Americans trapped overseas, a member of the first family who tried to do business with Libya and a president begging the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies (OPEC Plus) to increase oil production. It’s like the 1970s all over again. Gas prices have risen $1 a gallon since Joe Biden’s election, while crude oil prices have doubled since November to $83 per barrel — and some analysts predict they could rise by another $10 before the end of the...

    Former President Carter, the oldest living president, will mark his 97th birthday Friday. Carter plans to spend his birthday quietly at his home in Georgia and will not make any public appearances, Deanna Congelio, the press secretary at the Carter Center in Atlanta, told ABC. Employees at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site in Plains, Ga., the former president's hometown, recorded birthday greetings from him, ABC reported. The Carter Center's website shared an online birthday card that members of the public can sign.

    Sept 24 (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is starring in his own comic book set to be released days before he turns 97 on Oct. 1. The Democrat, who was in office from 1977-1981, is the latest icon to join to TidalWave Comics' "Political Power" series. The glossy, out on Wednesday, showcases James Earl Carter, Jr.'s 75-year love affair with his wife Rosalynn, his road to the White House, and his one-term presidency, in drawings by Martin Gimenez. "Few presidents enjoy positive press after their terms are over, but Jimmy Carter's post-presidential life has been one of unwavering...

    President Biden is making Jimmy Carter look like Winston Churchill. Carter, president from 1976 to 1980, is generally held by critics to be a failed, one-term president. He was defeated for re-election by Republican Ronald Reagan. This assessment is based on four years of an economic crisis that featured skyrocketing inflation, soaring interest rates, an energy shortage, long gasoline lines for scarce and overpriced gas, joblessness and, most importantly, the violent Iranian takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. In that takeover, Iranian militants on Nov. 4, 1979, seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. They were...

    U.S. used to rally behind a president when bad things happened abroad. Not any more. What happened in Tehran on Nov. 4, 1979, was an American president’s worst nightmare — especially when that president already had an approval rating hovering at just 30%, thanks to a lousy economy. An angry mob riled by that year’s Islamist revolution overran the U.S. Embassy in the Iranian capital, and by nightfall more than 50 Americans had been taken hostage. For a nation still reeling from its failure in the Vietnam War that ended just four years earlier, the Iranian hostage crisis made the...
