    Just last month, CAIR’s Dallas-Fort-Worth chapter held an event called "In Pursuit of Freedom" at the East Plano Islamic Center in Plano, Texas, calling for Siddiqui’s release, claiming she had been "kidnapped, ripped apart from her children, shot at, renditioned to the U.S., and is currently serving an 86-year prison sentence for a crime she did not commit." On Nov. 18, the CAIR chapter held an online fundraiser for Siddiqui’s defense team. Days earlier, multiple Muslim advocacy groups, including CAIR, American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Islamic Circle of North America Council for Social Justice (ICNA-CSJ), and the Muslim American...

    How bad are things for Joe Biden? On top of the latest poll showing him with a minuscule 33% approval rating, here comes a certified member of the liberal media noting the similarities between Biden's presidency and that of Jimmy Carter.On Friday's Morning Joe, Ed Luce was invited to discuss his current Financial Times column, "America's Nagging Echoes of the 1970s." Luce saw parallels in terms of inflation, crime on the rise, and threats from Moscow. But the most dread similarity he drew was: "The sense of drift, the general sense of drift. The sense we have a president that...

    Can we chat?Jimmy Carter invented the Misery Index – the combined unemployment rate plus inflation rate – in order to flog his 1976 opponent, Jerry Ford, about the head. As most often happens with Democrats, his own policies led to even more misery and he ended up beating Ford’s misery score by a full 2 percentage points, topping the misery index at 22%.Now cometh Joe Biden with his bag of magic beans. So far his official score is 10.9%. At the time he took the reins, so to speak, the misery index was under 7% and unemployment was on the...

    Want to see a real Capitol Insurrection? In 1954, Puerto Rican nationalists shot up the House Gallery, wounding five members of the House. Jimmy Carter pardoned them all. In 1983 the Weather Underground bombed the Capitol. Bill Clinton pardoned them. Now, as Mark points out, January 6th wasn't an insurrection, but Democrats will lie to make you believe it was.

    I will be visiting my close friend, who lives in Central GA,at the end of January or early February.We're considering a trip down to Plains, GA from where he is (roughly 1 hour away).I wasn't alive during Carter's presidency, but my understanding is that hewrecked the economy, fueled hyperinflation, helped expedite the decline of American Public Education via the creation of the unconstitutional DOE, and was a massive anti-Semite.In other words, he was a raving leftist who did more harm than good to this nation.However, I will give Carter some credit. I admire his ascension to the presidency in lieu...

    This is the port of Long Beach California. It is the second largest Port in North America, Ahead of the 3rd largest Port of New York, and Behind the largest Port which is the port of los angeles. Roughly 16 million Tons of Cargo pass through this port each year and makes its way to warehouses, factories, and homes, within the United States. This single port which is just 13 square kilometres, is responsible for well over $100 Billion dollars worth of trade and employs over 340 000 people in southern california. So, it is quite apparent that this port...
  • Are You Better Off Today Than You Were 10 Months Ago?

    During the 1980 presidential campaign, there was but one debate between the incumbent president, Democrat Jimmy Carter, and his Republican opponent, Ronald Reagan. Carter insisted on excluding third-party independent John B. Anderson from participating. Finally, just 13 days before the election, Carter got his way. It was disastrous for him but a blessing for our country. In the closing moments of this single debate on Oct. 28, Reagan looked into the camera and asked the American people a question: "Are you better off today than you were four years ago?" Voters of all stripes, stunned by Carter's weak-kneed foreign policy...

    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...

  • "The Worst U.S. Presidents" by Ranker Community

    The Worst U.S. PresidentsThe U.S. presidents whose administrations were the worst-run, most ill-fated, or most corrupt. The worst U.S. presidents of all time, measured by their negative impact on the nation, its citizens health and happiness, and its future prosperity. (In some cases - such as the popular selections of Warren G. Harding and Richard Nixon - the negative view of the president and his administration is due to various scandals and perceived corruption within its ranks. Nixon remains the only president to step down from the office amid threats of impeachment.) Much of a president's job - including serving...

    The victory of the Taliban in Afghanistan, along with the sometimes-chaotic withdrawal of American forces from that country, has produced a gusher of conservative commentary comparing President Joe Biden to his 1970s Democratic predecessor, Jimmy Carter. "This is Joe Biden's Jimmy Carter Moment" the New York Post declared. "He is like Jimmy Carter on acid," Meghan McCain, the former TV host, announced on Twitter. The conservative Washington Examiner had two different columnists connect the legacies of Biden and Carter in recent weeks, but that was restrained compared to the Wall Street Journal, where opinion pieces identifying Biden-Carter similarities have become...

    In 1975, President Ford was left to manage the difficult ending of the Vietnam War. President Ford went to Congress for a relief package to allow American personnel and our allies to evacuate. However, there was ONE U.S. SENATOR who opposed any such support. The result was the embarrassing and hurried evacuation from the roof of the American Embassy in Saigon. This Senator reveled in the embarrassment and did everything he could to leverage it politically against Ford. Despite the efforts of this one U.S. Senator, President Ford managed to rescue 1,500 South Vietnamese allies prior to the country’s falls....

    ATLANTA (AP) — Jimmy Carter is sometimes called a better former president than he was president. Nodding to Carter’s decades of work as a globe-trotting humanitarian but with a glaring reminder of his landslide defeat in 1980, the backhanded compliment rankles Carter allies and, they say, the former president himself. Yet now, 40 years removed from the White House, the most famous resident of Plains, Georgia, is riding a new wave of attention as biographers, filmmakers, climate activists and Carter’s fellow Democrats push to recast his presidential legacy, even as Republicans sometimes try to remind voters of the volatile economy...

    The young midshipman needed a date one evening while he was home from the U.S. Naval Academy, so his younger sister paired him with a family friend who already had a crush. Nearly eight decades later, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter are still together in the same tiny town where they were born, grew up and had that first outing. In between, they’ve traveled the world as Naval officer and military spouse, American president and first lady, and finally as human rights and public health ambassadors. “It’s a full partnership,” the 39th president told The Associated Press during a joint interview...
  • Welcome Back, Carter. Except Add Dementia.

    Remember the old 1970s sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter"? It aired on ABC from 1975 to 1979. The president of the United States throughout half that period was the infamous peanut-farmer-turned-worst-president-ever Jimmy Carter. Perfect timing. Because 2021 is clearly the new 1977. The new version of that sitcom is "Welcome Back, Carter. Except Add Dementia." It stars our current president, Joe "Basement" Biden, as today's hapless, pathetic, destructive Jimmy Carter. Basement Biden and Jimmy Carter are alike in so many ways it's almost surreal. Both appeared to the naked eye as decent human beings. Both portrayed themselves as moderate Democrats. Both...

  • Some Virginia stations run out of gas as pipeline shutdown continues

    05/10/2021 8:06:34 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 42 replies
    As of Monday night, a small number of gas stations in both Virginia and North Caroline have run out of gas. According to Patrick De Haan, a senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy, 6.35 percent of gas stations in Virginia were without gas as of 9 p.m. on Monday. According to GasBuddy’s outage tracker, numerous gas stations in the Tidewater region are without fuel and power. The longer the pipeline is offline, the larger the impact on the east coast, according to AAA. However, foreign gasoline imports and other pipelines can supplement Northeastern supply. Other areas are expected to see little...

    Economists expected the country to add 1 million jobs in April. It added just 266,000 — a sign that Bidenomics is kicking in and already becoming a dangerous drag on the economy. [cut] The US future inflation gauge is at a three-decade high, and consumers are already seeing higher prices in everything from baby products to groceries to cars. That’s what happens when you throw money into the economy willy-nilly, as Biden has done (and plans to do much more). The M2, a key measure of the money supply, is up by 25 percent over last year. Biden’s clueless reaction...
