    A Texas politician has claimed that he worked with a senior member of Ronald Reagan's 1980 presidential campaign to convince Iran to delay releasing its hostages during the crisis of 1979 in a bid to derail Jimmy Carter's re-election bid. Ben Barnes, Texas's former lieutenant governor, has claimed in an interview with The New York Times that John Connally Jr – once a governor of the same state and a high-ranking member of Reagan's election team – took him on a secret diplomatic tour of the Middle East as part of a scheme to damage Carter by convincing Iran to...

    WASHINGTON — It has been more than four decades, but Ben Barnes said he remembers it vividly. His longtime political mentor invited him on a mission to the Middle East. What Mr. Barnes said he did not realize until later was the real purpose of the mission: to sabotage the re-election campaign of the president of the United States.

    An unlikely custody battle has broken out over a stash of Norman Rockwell art allegedly stolen and hidden for decades—in the White House. In 1943, Rockwell created several sketches and watercolors chronicling a typical day in the White House’s executive wing, depicting everyone from senators to soldiers sitting on red sofas and chairs as they waited to meet President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The resulting montage, “So You Want to See the President,” ran in the Nov. 13, 1943, issue of “The Saturday Evening Post.” Rockwell gave the four original works on paper from that assignment to FDR’s longtime press secretary,...

    And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. – Matthew 6:5When word came that Jimmy Carter, age 98, was entering hospice care, the predictable plaudits began to pour in. Calling Carter “an inspiration,” Maria Shriver gushed that he “moves humanity forward every single day.” Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) described Carter as having always “walked with God.” Rocker Nils Lofgren called him “[a]s fine a man and soul as I’ve ever seen.” And Steve...
  • Why Jimmy Carter deserved my vote — and that of other Black Americans

    The Hill ^ | 02-22-2023 | ROGER HOUSE
    The first time I voted for president, I was a college student in New York City in 1980. I was intrigued by Jimmy Carter as he campaigned for re-election, wondering why a southern white man had strong support in the Black community. The sad news that the 98-year old former president is under home hospice care brought back memories of those days of crisis. That summer, I had a chance to see Carter at the NAACP national convention in Miami Beach. It occurred shortly after a riot over police brutality in the predominantly Black neighborhoods of Liberty City and Overton...

    More than a quarter-century after completing his term of office, James Earl Carter is still to be found in the thick of debates about national policies on a range of issues: nuclear arms, Iraq, North Korea, and, especially, the conflict between Israel and the Arabs. A steady stream of books and articles continues to issue forth from his pen, and he travels the world on self-selected diplomatic missions. No other former President has chosen to play a similar role. But then, Carter’s whole political career has been out of the ordinary. In order to understand the man today, it is...

    A vast protest movement of demonstrations all over Iran is shaking that theocratic and despotic regime led by Ayatolla Khmenei to its core. Now in their sixth week, the demonstrators, including many women, are protesting the death of 22-year-old Masha Amini for allegedly violating the strict dress code imposed on women, wearing a scarf in a way that displeased the religious police, who beat her to death. A new generation that came of age after President Obama betrayed the hopes of the Green Revolution in 2009 once again threatens the stability of the ruling circle's hold on power. As Adam...

    On his 98th birthday, Jimmy Carter has once again set a new record as the longest-living United States president. He's held the title since March of 2019, months after the previous title holder — President George H.W. Bush — died at the age of 94. President Carter may have only led the nation for four years, but in the four decades that have followed his White House tenure, he's managed to leverage his place in history to help others both domestically and abroad. The Carter Center, founded by Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter in 1982, has been aiding in a wide...

  • FLASHBACK: NYT Tried to Spin 1970s Stagflation to Protect Jimmy Carter Too

    Remember when The New York Times attempted to spin the 1970s stagflation crisis in order to protect former President Jimmy Carter’s political image before the 1980 elections? MRC Business does. The newspaper published a 1979 propaganda piece erroneously headlined, “The 70's: America Learns To Expect a Little Less,” The piece tried to paint lipstick on the pig of an economic disaster that Carter oversaw. Carter’s policies resulted in stagnant growth and a ridiculous annual inflation rate of 11.3 percent in 1979. “[D]espite the prospects of a recession next year, the economic reality is perhaps better than the psychology. Inflation in...

    The Biden White House is reportedly worried that the parallels to former President Jimmy Carter's presidency are going to stick as gas prices and inflation continue to increase and the president's approval rating remains low. Politico reported on Sunday that President Biden and his aides were feeling defeated by their efforts to counteract the many challenges the Biden administration currently faces. "Morale inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is plummeting amid growing fears that the parallels to Jimmy Carter, another first-term Democrat plagued by soaring prices and a foreign policy morass, will stick," Politico's Jonathan Lemire wrote.
