News and Opinion About Jimmy Carter

This is a spin-off from another page which demonstrates that liiberals are wildly out of step with mainstream America and its traditional values.

Jimmy Carter has shown by his words and actions that he is a true radical.  Whatever his motives may be, he is slowly and steadily making a fool of himself.  If he had just retired quietly and spent all his time on Habitat for Humanity, he would have been a venerable and irrelevant old President, but instead he has become quite a troublemaker.  Evidently my opinion is shared by many others.



Competing for the 'worst former president'.  Like an episode of "Survivor," pitting one generation against another, former President Jimmy Carter is vying to retain the title of our worst and most pestiferous former president against the coming challenge by President Obama.  Mr. Carter's latest attempt to keep his title was in an op-ed in the Nov. 28 New York Times.  There, he argued that President Obama should, in his final days in office, recognize a Palestinian state as a legitimate nation and require Israel to return to its borders as they existed before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war[.]

Failing to Learn from History.  Gullibility was not limited to the Iranians who swelled the ranks of the fraud.  On the other side of the world, the President of the United States of America — Jimmy "lust in my heart" Carter — saw Khomeini as a saint and a savior.  Carter provided the crucial support to the man whose greatest claim to the rank of the Grand Ayatollah was his lengthy dissertation on matters concerning sexual intercourse with animals.

Mainstream Scream: Carter revisionism begins, called 'too nice' to beat Reagan.  The mainstream media's revisionism of former President Jimmy Carter's doomed presidency has begun amid reports he is battling brain cancer.  Leading the charge last week was MSNBC's Joy Reid, a national correspondent who was host of the "Reid Report" from February 2014 to February 2015.

Jimmy Carter: 'I Believe Jesus Would Approve of Gay Marriage'.  Former President Jimmy Carter argued Tuesday Jesus Christ would "approve" of gay marriage if he were around in an interview with HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill.  Carter offered up his support for the recent Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide, while using Jesus to prop up his reasoning.

Carter: 'I Believe Jesus Would Approve Of Gay Marriage'.  Carter took on the issue from a Biblical perspective and declared that it was his view Jesus would have approved of the gay marriage.  "I believe Jesus would. I don't have any verse in scripture," Carter said.  'I believe 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."

Former Sunday School teacher Jimmy Carter seems to have forgotten the story about the woman at the well, among other things.

Carter: U.S. is 'The Most Warlike Country on Earth'.  Former President Jimmy Carter referred to the United States as the most "warlike country on Earth" last week during an interview with the nonprofit Aspen Institute.  "I think the American superpower goal should be to the champion of peace, and to be the champion of human rights, and to be the champion of the environment and to be the most generous nation on Earth," he said.  "Those are the elements that I hope eventually the United States will set as goals.  We are the most warlike country on Earth.  We are laggard in addressing the problem of global warming, for instance, and we are now violating about ten of the 30 paragraphs in the universal declaration of human rights, so I think this is something we should look upon as our duties for the future."

Jimmy Carter hits Obama on foreign policy, calls accomplishments 'minimal'.  President Obama was criticized last week by the president he is often compared to, Jimmy Carter.  Carter told an Aspen Institute audience that Obama's accomplishments on foreign policy "have been minimal" and that the United States' influence is "lower than it was six or seven years ago."

Jimmy Carter Accuses America Of 'Racist Tendencies'.  Yes, the second most horrible POTUS in U.S. history, Jimmy Carter, wants us to know that we are all a bunch of racists.  This, from a man who called the Hamas leader a "man of peace," refused to meet with Netanyahu because it would be a "waste of time," and claimed that Israel is guilty of "genocide" and should be investigated for "war crimes."

Jimmy Carter: White Americans cling to 'feelings of superiority' toward minorities.  Former President Jimmy Carter told AARP Bulletin during a recent interview that many Americans hold "feelings of superiority" toward minorities.  Mr. Carter spoke on a range of subjects with the magazine, including campaign spending and lobbyists, but he made a point to say that the U.S. still is lacking in terms of safeguarding civil rights.  "The recent publicity about mistreatment of black people in the judicial and police realm has been a reminder that the dreams of the civil rights movement have not been realized. [...] Many Americans still have racist tendencies or feelings of superiority to people of color," Mr. Carter told AARP Bulletin, The Hill reported Thursday [6/4/2015].

The Editor says...
I guess I don't know what "the dreams of the civil rights movement" are or were.  I thought the civil rights movement was about blacks being required to sit in the back of the city bus, being confined to their own neighborhoods, and being badgered at the polls.  All that was eliminated decades ago, but President Carter seems to thing that nothing has improved since 1960.

Is Obama a villain? Or only delusional?  Liberals are still lulled by lying Democrats with big smiles.  Jimmy Carter's big toothy smile was a factor in his election, and here we are forty years later, stuck with a nation of 70 million Muslims who are told to prepare for war against us every single day:  Against Israel, against America, against the Sunni Arabs.  Jimmy Carter looked on passively when the Ayatollah overthrew a strong, modernizing, pro-Western ally in Iran.  That is why we are now threatened by a brainwashed nation of suicidal fanatics going for nuclear weapons.

Jimmy Carter, Will You Please Go Home.  All Carter's "peace" trips ever do is make war more likely by giving aggressors like Hamas legitimacy. [...] Carter's meddling in North Korea during the Clinton administration led to years wasted formulating an Agreed Framework on nukes that ultimately failed.

For Jimmy Carter, Light Never Goes On When It Comes To Terrorism.  The man who many call the "greatest living ex-president" is at it again, suggesting that the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris are partly Israel's fault.  Speaking on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart, Jimmy Carter was asked if the violence in Paris had causes other than Islamic extremism.  "Well, one of the origins for it is the Palestinian problem," Carter said.  "And this aggravates people who are affiliated in any way with the Arab people who live in the West Bank and Gaza, what they are doing now — what's being done to them.  So I think that's part of it."

The Editor says...
I have never heard anybody refer to Jimmy Carter as the "greatest living ex-president."  There are plenty of people who called him the worst president in U.S. history, until a couple of years ago, when Barack H. Obama took over that role.

Jimmy Carter says Israeli-Palestinian conflict 'one of the origins' of Islamist violence.  Muslim anger over the festering Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the contributing causes of the kind of Islamist-inspired terrorism that claimed the lives of 20 people in France last week, former president Jimmy Carter told Jon Stewart of Comedy Central's The Daily Show.

Flitting off to Paris on your own 747 can be such a chore!
Carter: Give Obama A Break for Not Going to Paris, He Just Came Back from Vacation.  Former president Jimmy Carter told a group of reporters that they should give Barack Obama a bit of a break for not attending the recent solidarity march in Paris, which dozens of other world leaders attended.  "I don't think there's any need for criticism," he said, according to the Wall Street Journal.  "The president sometimes can't go where he'd prefer to go," Carter continued.  "He's just come back from vacation so I think he's probably got a lot on his desk."  (Obama recently came back from his Hawaii Christmas vacation, where he was roundly criticized for ruining a wedding.)

The Editor says...
Mr. Obama obviously doesn't have anything "on his desk," because he spent the day watching television.

Jimmy Carter Invokes Allah In His Speech to Terror-Tied Islamic Group's Conference.  Former president Jimmy Carter decided to give an alleged Muslim Brotherhood front organization legitimacy by being the first president to address their annual conference.  In his keynote speech this weekend, he told attendees to mobilize against violence targeting women and spoke passionately about abuses to women.  If only he had stopped there.  "Men and women are created equally from one soul," Carter said.  "If you were taught by your parents or you believe you're superior to your wife just because you're a man, Allah says your wrong."  He didn't forget to address the Israel-Palestine peace initiative.  As usual, he sided with Palestinians over Jews.

Jimmy Carter Tells Islamic Society: The Principles of Allah 'Will Bring Peace and Justice to All'.  Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit.  He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world.  Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its "rigid" views.  Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more "rigid."  For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn't allow Christians to build any churches.  Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians.  If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death.  One can be an apostate just by having a Muslim father.

The Editor says...
A Muslim father?  Such as Barack H. Obama, Senior?

Jimmy Carter Tells Islamic Conference: "Principles of Allah" Are Key to Peace.  Former President Jimmy Carter told attendees at the Islamic Society of North America that "the principles of Allah" are the key to peace in the Middle East.  Carter spoke to the group on Saturday [8/30/2014].

Why is Jimmy Carter speaking at a Muslim convention?  Jimmy Carter is scheduled to be the keynote speaker this weekend at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).  To many Americans, that doesn't warrant more than a shrug of the shoulders, but the planned Saturday appearance is also drawing criticism from some conservatives who say the event looks to be another example of the former president implicitly undercutting US foreign policy — in this case, opposition to Islamic terrorism.

Former US president joins opposition to Keystone XL.  Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday [4/16/2014] in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger "more climate upheaval" around the globe.  In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders:  "Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy."  The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come out against the pipeline.

Jimmy Carter: U.S. Shouldn't Bomb Iran Even If They Get a Nuclear Weapon.  Former President Jimmy Carter joined MSNBC's Chris Matthews for an interview on Hardball Wednesday [4/9/2014] and made some news by saying he does not think the United States should bomb Iran even if they were to succeed in building an operational nuclear weapon.  This statement differs not only from recent comments made by former Vice President Dick Cheney but also from the stated position of President Barack Obama.

Carter dismisses Clinton's State work.  Former President Carter says Hillary Clinton "took very little action" as secretary of State to bring about peace.  Carter, 89, made the remark about the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic front-runner in a phone interview with Time magazine Wednesday night after he spoke at the Civil Rights Summit in Austin, Texas.

Jimmy Carter Says Iranian Hostage Takers Were "College Students".  There has been outrage in the U.S. over Iran's bid to have one of the hostage takers who stormed the American Embassy in Tehran serve as its ambassador to the UN in New York.  Twenty-nine Republican senators have written to President Obama urging him to deny a visa to Hamid Aboutalebi, who was a member of a Muslim student group that took over the Embassy in 1979 and held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days.  The State Department says it's "troubled" by the move, but has not said if it will refuse Aboutalebi a visa.  Now Aboutalebi has found support in the  unlikely  entirely predictable figure of former President turned globe-trotting America-basher Jimmy Carter.

Jimmy Carter believes U.S. is spying on him.  Former President Jimmy Carter believes U.S. intelligence agencies are spying on him — so much so, he eschews email to avoid government spies.  "You know, I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored," Carter told NBC's Andrea Mitchell in an interview broadcast Sunday [3/23/2014].  "And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write a letter myself, put it in the post office and mail it.  "I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored," Carter continued.

The Editor says...
Brilliant plan, Mr. President.  Everybody knows the three-letter intelligence agencies can't read paper mail.

Dangerous Times: Are Obama's Syrian Stumbles Good for America?  Looking back, it seems that Jimmy Carter and his NSC advisor Zbig Brzezinski actually helped the sadistic Khomeini regime rise to power after pulling the rug out from our ally, the Shah of Iran.  Apparently Carter thought the United States deserved to lose Iran as an ally because of what happened in 1953, almost three decades before, when Stalin was in power in the Soviet Union.  This is plainly insane, but Carter and Brzezinski still defend their screwy reasoning today, while the Iranian theocracy kills its young people and commits aggression against us.

Former president Jimmy Carter OK with legalizing marijuana.  Former President Jimmy Carter said he is in favor of legalizing marijuana during a public panel that CNN aired Tuesday [12/11/2012].

Carter Visits Abbas to Sabotage Peace Talks.  Carter arrived in Israel this week with former Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland and former Irish president Mary Robinson, two other critics of Israel looking for something unhelpful to do with their time.  The trio came to Israel to heap more attacks on the Israeli people, as would be expected.  But they also met with Mahmoud Abbas.

Sound Familiar? Islamists Storm U.S. Embassy and America Apologizes.  Over 33 years ago, Islamist rioters stormed an American embassy.  U.S. sovereignty was violated and hostages were taken.  The immediate response from America, though, was conciliatory — as if those who had insulted the United States could be convinced to think better of their target if those who had just been attacked made enough apologies.  The result was the Iran hostage crisis that helped bring down the administration of Jimmy Carter.

The Carter 'legacy'.  With his every utterance, Jimmy Carter continues to make us grateful that he was only a one-term president and, therefore, limited in his ability to do the nation lasting harm.

Likely Voters: Carter Was a Better President than Obama.  According to a Newsweek/Daily Beast poll of likely voters, Barack Obama now rates behind Jimmy Carter in the pantheon of great presidents.  The poll asked likely voters to list the two best and the two worst presidents the history of the United States.

Jimmy Carter, World Chaos, and the Muslim World Takeover.  The American government together with the British, French, and others are determined to divide the Land [of Israel] and give more than half of it to the enemies of God.  In December 2011, America's Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, said "Israel needs to get to the damn table."  In other words, America must force Israel to give away more of God's Land.  Our government (not just the administration of Hussein Obama but many past administrations) has cursed America by demanding that Israel give up the Land that God told them they must never sell.  Therefore I state categorically that America is finished. [...] And to think that Jimmy Carter, Baptist Sunday School teacher and peanut farmer, unleashed this horror on the world.

Obama Refuels Jimmy Carter's Failed Energy Policies.  While President Obama talks about how forward-looking he is when it comes to the nation's energy, almost everything he's proposing is just a retread of Jimmy Carter's failed policies from the 1970s.

Jimmy Carter Pops Up And Blames Israel Over Iran.  I thought Groundhog Day was last month.  But, I guess any discussion regarding Israel defending itself wouldn't be complete without the input of a miserable failure at being POTUS, and a rabid anti-Semite.

Jimmy Carter Says He Puts His Trust in Muslim Brotherhood.  Former Democrat President Jimmy Carter says he trusts the Muslim Brotherhood... But is concerned about Israel.  That sounded like something Barack Obama would say, huh?

Obama goes full Carter.  President Obama had a Jimmy Carter moment this afternoon when he dragged his daughters, 10 and 13, into his re-election campaign, using them as political props in the way Jimmy Carter used his youngest daughter, Amy Carter, then 13, to try to score points in the 1980 presidential debate — a debate that turned a close race into the biggest humiliation of an incumbent president in 52 years.

More comparisons of Obama to Carter can be found on this page.

Fracking: The Radical Left's Latest Weapon of Fear.  In 1977, President Jimmy Carter warned Americans of a pending "national catastrophe" in a prime time nationally televised speech.  "The Oil and natural gas we rely on for 75 percent of our energy are running out."  Resources were being depleted so fast that the world "could use up all the proven reserves of oil in the entire world by the end of the next decade," Carter said.  Rather obviously, Carter's end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it prediction didn't happen. ... Instead of running out of oil and gas as Carter predicted, the inventory of America's recoverable domestic reserves has increased dramatically.

Gallup: Only Carter was less popular.  In his third year as president, Barack Obama was less popular than all but one president — Carter — since Harry Truman in their third year as president.  According to Gallup, President Obama's average approval was 44.4% in Year Three of his administration, above only Jimmy Carter.

The President Who Never Was.  [Scroll down]  How odd that Obama has tried on every mask except one that naturally fits him, that of Jimmy Carter.  Carter, remember, railed about luxury boats and three-martini lunches, as if that kind of indulgence had sent the economy into 8% unemployment, 12% inflation, and 15% interest rates.  Our problem was always Nixon of old, never Carter of the present.  Beneath the utopian Christian caring was the mean streak and petulance; Carter, you see, loved humanity but not humans.

The New Libyan Regime Protecting the Lockerbie Bomber.  [Scroll down]  Former President Jimmy Carter was widely quoted in 1986 denouncing President Reagan's raid on Gaddafi's compound in Tripoli.  Carter didn't object that the U.S. Navy jets had failed to kill the Libyan dictator.  Carter thought it a war crime that we even tried to take out this killer of Americans. ... Of course, Carter's spinelessness was abundantly demonstrated and a major reason why voters in forty-four states in 1980 booted him unceremoniously from the White House.

The Worst Steward of the Economy in American History.  It has been debated whether Jimmy Carter or Barack Obama is the epitome of incompetence in modern U.S. history.  While Carter made myriad mistakes and was in over his head, he did not put the country in an untenable position regarding its future.  Obama has.

Who's the worst president in American history?
A growing bipartisan consensus on Obama.  For more than 30 years, a wounded Jimmy Carter has roamed the world speaking ill of whomever the sitting president might be and occasionally making it difficult for that president to make policy.  Mr. Obama already has surpassed him, speaking ill of America as a whole while being president.

The Obamayyad of Barry Hussein.  Jimmy Carter and his National Security Advisor, Zbig Brzezinski, are personally responsible for the Islamic radicalization of the Middle East — by pulling the Persian rug out from our loyal ally, the Shah of Iran, and letting mass-murdering thug Ayatollah Khomeini take over a country of 70 million people. ... But nobody is going to hold Jimmy and Zbig responsible, because (a) they're Democrats, and therefore protected by the media mafia, and (b) they're never responsible for anything bad, no matter what the facts may be.

On 40th anniversary of drug war, condemnation from Carter.  On the 40th anniversary of the War on Drugs, one of its oldest opponents has once again come out swinging.  In a New York Times op-ed titled "Call Off the Global Drug War," former President Jimmy Carter called the global antidrug campaign a "total failure" and said U.S. policy in particular was "more punitive and counterproductive" than in other democracies.

Maybe 'Change' Isn't All The Mideast Needs.  The lesson of Jimmy Carter's incompetent, human rights-based naivete masquerading as a foreign policy is that the "devil" you know is often better than his replacement.  The Ayatollah Khomeini turned out to be far worse than the Shah of Iran — and his Islamofascist regime, now more than 30 years old, remains in power today, seeking nuclear weapons.  Obama claimed "the people of the region have achieved more change in six months than terrorists have accomplished in decades."  But we don't yet know what "change," particularly in Egypt, will mean.

Jimmy Carter Denounces America From North Korea.  What will become of Barack Hussein Obama if America pulls out of its tailspin and ejects him from office in 2012?  Given his track record of putting us down in other countries, he will probably step into the shoes Jimmy Carter has been warming up for him.  In the latest of his many displays of moonbattery at its most vile, Carter has chosen the communist concentration camp known as North Korea as a fit place to accuse the USA of human rights violations.

Calling Jimmy Carter a "useful idiot" would be a waste of one word.  Remember back when Jimmy Carter's brother Billy was thought of as the family idiot?  Feel free to consider those the good ol' days because Jimmy is proving himself not only to be the worst President in recent history, but the worst ex-President.

Does Jimmy Carter Have No Shame?  Former President Jimmy Carter was just in Pyongyang, North Korea and blames the United States largely for the situation in the country.  The United States and South Korea have chosen "to deliberately withhold food aid to the North Korean people because of political or military issues not related" and this amounts to a "human rights violation."

Ex-President Jimmy Carter calls for North Korea aid.  Former US President Jimmy Carter has accused the US and South Korea of human rights violations against North Koreans by withholding food aid.  Mr Carter made the comments after a three-day private visit to Pyongyang.

Jimmy Carter's Mystery Gift for Kim Jong Il.  [Former President] Carter reportedly brought a gift to Kim when he visited North Korea last year, and brought Kim another gift when he dropped by Pyongyang last week.  Presumably Carter also brought a gift to Kim's father, Kim Il Sung, when he visited North Korea in 1994.  But what are these gifts that Carter has been bringing?

Jimmy Carter Bashes U.S. In Meeting With Communists.  The only American president to publicly support Middle Eastern terrorism has completed a schmooze fest with a communist dictator in a country that appears on the U.S. State Department's list of terrorist-sponsoring nations.  It marks the latest "humanitarian" mission for Jimmy Carter, who just a few years ago became the only American commander-in-chief to participate in a hug fest with the head of the world's leading Middle Eastern terrorist group.

Jimmy Carter the Elder.  When he was president, Carter tried to order most of the US troops stationed in South Korea home despite warning by generals, Congress, the Japanese and, yes, even the Chinese, that a withdrawal of American troops could destabilize the region and invite agression from North Korea.  But back then Carter knew much better than the rest of us how to make peace with dictators.  The price of peace is surrender.

Jimmy Carter: Disgraceful In Cuba.  Former President Jimmy Carter recently paid a visit to Cuba where he was treated more as a friend than as a former head of state.  The Cuban government has now released a translation of his appearance on Cuban television.  His performance was, well, disgraceful.

Some of Jimmy Carter's best friends aren't terrorists.  I guess we can all relax about the fate of the Middle East.  Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter assures us that he knows members of the Muslim Brotherhood "and they're not anything to be afraid of."

Jimmy Carter not concerned about Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.  Former President Jimmy Carter, whose foreign policy naivety and weakness facilitated the rise of Islamofacism in Iran, is confident Egypt has a promising future:  The Muslim Brotherhood will be overwhelmed by Jeffersonian Democrats — and the formerly pro-Mubarak military will bow to the will of the people and welcome free elections, he says.

Obama Retreats, Ahmadinejad Advances.  We are witnessing an exact copy of Jimmy Carter's abandonment of a pro-Western and fairly enlightened Iran in 1979.  Carter allowed the first radical Islamist power to consolidate in the Middle East; more than a million people died in the war that followed.  Jimmy still maintains his innocence, just as he's telling us now there's nothing to fear from the Muslim Bros, in spite of their famous five Rules for Islamic Radicals.  They make Alinsky look like a guppy next to a Great White shark.

The Jimmy Carter Chronicles.  For those of you not entirely certain about where to stand on a complex, dynamic situation in Egypt, fear no more:  Jimmy Carter has waded in to add both clarity and certainty.  "I think that the Muslim Brotherhood is not anything to be afraid of," Carter told a wide-eyed, admiring university audience in Austin, Texas.  The man who presided over the replacement of the Shah with the world's worst theocratic-terror state confidently predicted that the Muslim Brotherhood "will be subsumed in the overwhelming demonstration of desire for freedom and democracy."

Jimmy Carter Sued for 'Inaccurate' Anti-Israel Book.  Five readers have filed a $5 million lawsuit against former president Jimmy Carter, alleging that his 2006 anti-Israel book, "Peace Not Apartheid," was so riddled with inaccuracies and misleading statements that it violated consumer-protection laws.

Does Jimmy Carter Deserve To Be Sued?  In a suit filed in federal court in New York, former president Jimmy Carter, along with his publisher, Simon & Schuster, is being sued by five readers of his 2006 book, "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid."  The suit alleges that the defendants violated New York's consumer protection laws by committing "deceptive acts in the conduct of business, trade, or commerce."

There's No Abe Lincoln in the Muslim Hood.  When Jimmy Carter brought the first really suicidal Islamic fanatics to power in Tehran in 1979, he was facing exactly the same correlation of forces.  And he totally misread them.  Andrew Young has written that the Carter State Dept. thought Ayatollah Khomeini was "some kind of saint."  This kind of saint had his hands deep in the blood of innocents long before he took over in Tehran. ... What we are seeing in Egypt, Iran, and maybe Tunisia was brought to you by the appeasement faction of the Democratic Party, led by Jimmy and Zbig.

Keeping Carter's home neat costs U.S. a tidy sum.  The tennis court at former President Jimmy Carter's private home is swept twice a day, his pool is cleaned daily and his grass cut, his flower beds weeded and his windows washed on a regular basis — all at taxpayers' expense.

Jimmy Carter, greedy grabber.  Jimmy Carter is a miracle worker:  He's found a way to milk a peanut. ... And given his history of scolding Americans for their "worship [of] self-indulgence and consumption," it's especially delicious to see him now.

Jimmy Carter Gone Wild.  There used to be a code among former presidents that you did not speak ill of other occupants of the White House. ... But former President Jimmy Carter is apparently not a code keeper.  On his recent book tour, Carter has taken to blasting the Republican Party and Bush-the-Younger.  Carter is also very, very disenchanted with Fox News.

Jimmy Carter Lies on NPR:  'I Have Never Criticized the Tea Party Movement'.  Former president Jimmy Carter lied in an interview with NPR talk-show host Diane Rehm on Tuesday [11/30/2010].  She ended the interview by asking about the Tea Party and he claimed he had never criticized them — despite smearing them as racists in 2009 in an NBC interview with Brian Williams.

The Dems' Disastrous Model.  Former president Jimmy Carter likewise seems to feel that he's still too smart for us.  Carter, who turns 86 on Friday, is hitting the news shows to explain why he remains America's "superior" ex-president — and why more than 30 years ago he was so successful yet so underappreciated as our chief executive.  Most Americans instead remember a very different President Carter, who finished his single term with 18 percent inflation, 18 percent interest rates, 11 percent unemployment, long gas lines, and a world in chaos, from hostage-taking in Teheran to Soviet Communist aggression in Afghanistan and Central America.

The Gospel According To Jimmy.  Well, he's back!  In his "White House Diary" Jimmy Carter engages in his latest attempt to burnish his historical reputation.  His previous efforts, and there have been many, have earned him a dubious Nobel Peace Prize, but they have changed few minds here at home, because many Americans are old enough to remember him.  Now, the ex-President begins his valedictory tour, something of a last hurrah, as it were, in the hopes of establishing a fraudulently positive historical legacy.

Profile in Incompetence: The Worst President in American History.  In this exclusive 10-part series, IBD takes a hard look at Jimmy Carter's administration and compares it to that of George W. Bush, which Carter has called the worst ever.

Can't Stop the Typing.  By giving one of America's dopiest presidents the bum's rush, the American people ensured that Mr. Carter would spend the rest of his life trying to even the score, trying to persuade them that they had made a huge mistake when they cast their lot with Ronald Reagan, trying to convince them that they were a bunch of jerks.  The particular form of retribution Carter chose was as sinister and cruel as any known to man.  He took his pen in hand and began to write books.

Days Of Malaise, Full Of Contempt.  In the summer of 1979, President Jimmy Carter gave the most incompetent address in the history of the presidency — his infamous "malaise speech."  Incredibly, Democrats today are imitating Carter's disastrous moaning and groaning:  The people don't know what's good for them, and they should just be silent and trust their betters.

Carter:  'Probably superior' to other ex-presidents.  In an interview with NBC's Brian Williams, former President Jimmy Carter, who has been a target of the right through the years, lauded his own post-presidency, telling Williams, "I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents."

Carter:  My Charity Work Is 'Superior' to Other Ex-Presidents'.  Jimmy Carter says his philanthropic work is "superior" to that of other former presidents, citing his activism on the environment and leadership filling "vacuums in the world."

The 7 Worst Presidents Of The Last Hundred Years.  [#4] Jimmy Carter (D):  Not only did Carter stand by and watch our ally, the Shah of Iran, get overthrown by fundamentalist crazies, he botched the Iranian hostage crisis that sprang from the overthrow in almost every way possible.  It's also worth noting that the Soviets were inspired by Carter's naiveté to invade Afghanistan on his watch.  In other words, both the war on terror and Iran's quest for nuclear weapons can be directly traced back to Jimmy Carter's presidency.  To top off all of that incompetence, Carter gave away the Panama Canal.

Obama Is Colluding with a New Fascist Imperialism.  [Scroll down]  We can see that delusional thinking right now in Barack Hussein Obama and in Hillary, just as we saw it in the Carter administration — which gave Islamic fascism its first taste of real power in 1979.  It's important to remember that reactionary Islamic fascism was mostly gone after the Ottoman Empire crumbled in 1917.  A number of Muslim countries desperately tried to modernize for sixty years — until Jimmy Carter gave the pre-medieval throwback Ayatollah Khomeini his first big chance in 1979.  That started a race among all the suppressed Islamofascists in Sunni and Shiite countries.

Have You No Shame, Leftists?  [Scroll down slowly]  Or consider Jimmy Carter, who has spent the past three decades cozying up to the likes of Yasser Arafat and working overtime to prove that people who call him America's biggest anti-Semite aren't just whistling "Dixie."  But, not content with merely condemning Israel's Jews, he branched out a while ago and condemned Southern Baptists for oppressing their womenfolk, going so far as to turn his back on the church he has belonged to for his entire life.

Jimmy Carter's Second Term.  The year 1980 was considered a bellwether year in presidential politics.  America was firmly caught up in the economic and foreign policy nightmare that was the Carter Administration.  The prime rate was 20.5%, inflation was running at 14.8%, unemployment was a then record 10.8%, the 30 year mortgage rate was a staggering 18.5% and gas prices (adjusted to 2008 dollars) were $3.45 a gallon.  The soviet invasion of Afghanistan had given President Carter reason to boycott the 1980 Olympic Games.  Oh, and let's not leave out the surrendering control of the Panama Canal. ... One only has to look at the twin disasters of the creation of the Departments of Education and Energy to realize he was a policy wonk gone mad.

Ungovernable?  Nonsense.  In the latter days of the Carter presidency, it became fashionable to say that the office had become unmanageable and was simply too big for one man.  Some suggested a single, six-year presidential term. ... It turned out that the country's problems were not problems of structure but of leadership.  Reagan and Clinton had it.  Carter didn't.

ADL:  Carter has reverted to anti-Israel stance, despite recent apology.  Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter's apology to the Jewish community over his anti-Israel views should not be taken seriously, an Anti-Defamation League statement said Sunday, claiming that Carter had continued attacking Israel even after sending an apologetic letter to the leaders of the U.S. Jewish community.

Jimmy Carter, the Jew-hater who cried racist.  America's worst ex-president Jimmy Carter made a ridiculous charge on Tuesday that Joe Wilson's outburst was "based on racism" and, more broadly, that "an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man."  It's ironic that a man who has such hate in his heart would call other people racists.

Carter's cries of racism are both wrong and destructive.  Failed President and presumptuous fool that he is, Jimmy Carter has looked into the heart of America and discovered racism among those who most strenuously oppose the nation's first black occupant of the White House.  Carter's diagnosis of prejudice in the anti-Obama fevers was both an insult to the public and a damaging blow to rational debate over the hugely contentious agenda that the President is seeking to advance.

Perhaps Jimmy Carter is racist.  Jimmy Carter time and again blames the Middle East's only true democracy, Israel, for the woes in that region while providing excuses for Arab terrorists, and there we have it.  This Sunday school-teaching Baptist is an anti-Semite, a hater of Jews, someone whose political views on the subject of Arab-Israeli peace are most persuasively informed by his deep-seated bigotry.

The White-Racism Chorus.  Did Attorney General Eric Holder really want honest talk when in February he called for "frank conversations" about race?  "Honest" talk, as the MSM and much of the chattering Left defines it, consists of slamming most whites as racist. ...[Jimmy] Carter has concluded that Obama critics are "overwhelmingly" racist.

Steele blasts Carter for comment.  RNC Chairman Michael Steele, the Republican Party's most prominent African American official, has issued a press release criticizing former President Jimmy Carter for arguing that much of the opposition that President Obama is facing is due to race.

Bias alert:
Michael Steele is the Republican Party's most prominent official, period, since he is the chairman.

Georgia Pharisee.  Jimmy Carter now has done to his ex-presidency what he did to his presidency, which is to say that he has, through his incessant moral preening, converted mere incompetence into something more unseemly.  Mr. Carter thunders that those who oppose President Obama's plans to nationalize the health-care industry, and those who oppose other elements of the president's agenda, are doing so for reasons of racism.

Jimmy Carter plays the race card.  Jimmy Carter has made an outrageous, unfounded and potentially inflammatory remark about race.  He has claimed that a great proportion of the vitriolic opposition to President Obama's health reforms and spending plans are actually motivated by racial hatred:  that this president is being attacked not for his policies but for his colour.  He offers no evidence for this extraordinary assertion presumably because there is none.

The Liberals' Breakdown.  According to Jimmy Carter's libel against opponents of Barack Obama, "an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is black man."  This reminds us once again of what a pathetic and mean-spirited figure Mr. Carter has become.

Jimmy Carter and the Elvis Factor.  Jimmy Carter strikes again!  The former President is not content having left office with high inflation, high interest rates and high unemployment.  Nor is he content with having signed into law the Community Reinvestment Act — strengthened by President Bill Clinton — which played a major roll in the eventual housing market meltdown.

Carter and the Panama Canal:  A liberal Democratic president has his heart set on pushing through a proposal strongly unpopular with most Americans.  Enjoying substantial Democratic majorities in both the House and the Senate, he intends to win.  So it was in September, 1977, when Jimmy Carter signed the Panama Canal treaties to relinquish United States control.  An Associated Press opinion poll conducted that month found that only 29 percent of Americans favored the pact.  A solid 50 percent opposed it and 21 percent expressed no opinion.

Hamas and Mr. Carter.  Former President Jimmy Carter said this week that he plans to ask the Obama administration to take Hamas off the U.S. list of terrorist organizations.  This prompts the question, what part of the word "terrorist" doesn't Mr. Carter understand?

Jimmy 'n' Fidel, &c.  I have written a fair amount about Fidel Castro, over the years, and a fair amount about Jimmy Carter, too.  Perhaps readers are sick of hearing about those men.  Sometimes I get sick of writing about them.  But let me do so here, briefly:  for the two men have come together, again.

Will Jimmy Carter Meddle in Obama's Foreign Affairs?  Ever since he left the White House in defeat 28 years ago, Jimmy Carter's freewheeling, freelance diplomacy has put him squarely at odds with his successors, but could he help President Obama?

The Anti-American President.  Pre-Obama, Jimmy Carter has long been reviled as the worst president in American history.  Carter's bungling of the presidency was more than his manifest inadequacy.  Carter brazenly supported America's most dangerous enemies; enabling the rise of the Islamofacist thugocracy in Iran.  Islamic terrorism, including 9/11, can be tracked back in a straight line back to Carter.  The Shah of Iran was a friend of the United States.  Indeed, he was a flawed leader, prone to despotism but a real pussycat compared to the current Iranian thugocracy.  Until former president Jimmy Carter took office, the United States and Iran maintained a stable relationship.  Carter couldn't abandon the Shah fast enough.

Should we call him Jimmy Obama?  Carter's paralysis as Soviet power expanded from Somalia to Ethiopia, and then to Afghanistan, his feckless make-nice attempt to cajole the West Europeans to respond to Soviet missile deployments, his abandonment of the shah and subsequent appeasement of Khomeini (his ambassador to the UN, Andrew Young, described the Iranian fascist leader as "some kind of saint"), greatly encouraged our enemies, all over the world.

Jimmy Carter and the Camp David Myth.  The truth is that Mr. Carter never wanted an Egyptian-Israeli agreement, fought hard against it, and only agreed to go along with the process when it became clear that the rest of his foreign policy was in a shambles and he desperately needed to log a success.

Obama's charm offensive and the global jihad.  In a commencement address at Notre Dame, he declared that Americans had shed their "inordinate fear of communism."  In the months that followed, Carter slashed the defense budget, scrapped the B-1 bomber, welcomed the Sandinista coup in Nicaragua, and launched diplomatic relations with Cuba's dictator, Fidel Castro.  It wasn't until the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979 that Carter finally woke up to his naiveté.

Carter:  Hamas can be trusted.  Hamas can be trusted, former US President Jimmy Carter said Monday [1/26/2009], in an interview on NBC's 'Today' show.  Carter spoke with NBC's Meredith Vieira about his perspective on the Middle East conflict, and his new book, "We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land."

Jimmy Carter's delusions.  Jimmy Carter now has the gall to claim on The Daily Show that he, not Richard Nixon, opened up China.  Is there any diplomatic accomplishment he will not claim credit for?

Jimmy Carter's myopia:  It appears that Jimmy Carter is revising history.  The Benjamin Netanyahu I know was attending college during the Camp David meetings.  In fact, when I recommended him to Begin for a government job, the prime minister did not even know who Benjamin was.  I have no idea how Carter was so aware of Benjamin Netanyahu's political ideology; he was selling furniture to help fund his schooling.

Age And Experience:  Carter's Catastrophes.  [Jimmy Carter] came to power in the aftermath of the Vietnam War and the resignation of President Nixon.  The public wanted change and someone new, and Carter was an ambitious, hands-on politician who promised better days.  As good as his intentions were, however, the things he tried were not successful.  In fact, he created far more serious problems than he ever solved.

Scaring Us to Death.  Recall that during President Carter's last year in office in 1980 what was called the "misery index", which was defined as the sum of the inflation and unemployment rates, was about 22 percent:  inflation averaged 14 percent; unemployment was 7.5 percent.  Today's inflation just became 5 percent, having been between 1 and 3 percent for a decade, and unemployment is 6.1.

Why I'm Voting for John McCain:  [Scroll down slowly]  I bet some of you think I've already forgotten about Jimmy Carter.  I only wish.  To my way of thinking, Carter was undeniably the worst president.  Among other things, he saddled America with 21% inflation and 12% unemployment.  He also turned his back on the Shah of Iran, thus opening the door to the Ayatollah Khomeini and thirty years of world-wide Islamic terrorism.  Then, not one to rest on his laurels, Carter became the worst ex-president in American history….

Can America Afford Another Jimmy Carter?  When former President Carter took office in 1977, the Shah of Iran was a staunch ally of the United States, a mainstay in our standoff with the Soviet Union, thwarting the dream held since the time of the czars of pushing south toward the warm waters of the Persian Gulf.  Former president Carter's human rights deal, gave rise to one of the worst rights violators in history — the Ayatollah Khomeini.  Thanks to Jimmy and company, Khomeini's successors are preparing for nuclear war with Israel and the West.

Report:  Jimmy Carter to Meet With Hamas Leader in Syria.  Former President Jimmy Carter is reportedly preparing an unprecedented meeting with the leader of Hamas, an organization that the U.S. government considers one of the leading terrorist threats in the world.

State Department:  Carter Meeting With Terrorists Not 'in the Interest of Peace'.  Former President Jimmy Carter's upcoming meeting with senior officials of the Palestinian terror group Hamas is not "in the interest of peace," according to State Department spokesman Sean McCormack.  FOX News confirmed on Thursday [4/10/2008] that Carter will travel to Syria next week for an unprecedented meeting with the senior leadership of Hamas.

Carter's foolish journey:  Former President Jimmy Carter … is reported to have scheduled a meeting with Khaled Mashaal, the political leader of Hamas. … Over the years, Mashaal has claimed responsibility for many of Hamas' suicide bomb attacks in Israel.  He leads an organization that praised as "heroic" Palestinian terrorists who crossed into Israel and killed two civilians at a fuel depot on Wednesday [4/9/2008].  Hamas allows — or instigates — the continuing barrage of rockets into Israel, taking every opportunity to disrupt peace negotiations.

Analyze This:  Carter and Hamas.  Given Carter's record in conducting such conversations with Hamas — and with a long list of dictators over the past three decades, including Kim Il Sung, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Slobodan Milosevic and many, many more — it is fairly safe to expect little good to emerge from that discussion.

Israel cools to visit from Carter.  Former President Jimmy Carter brokered the first Israeli-Arab peace deal, but he's getting a cool reception in Israel during his latest visit to the Mideast.  Israeli leaders are shunning the globe-trotting peacemaker for planning to meet with the head of Israel's archenemy Hamas, Khaled Mashaal, and comparing the Jewish state's policies to apartheid.

Carter 'Quite at Ease' About Hamas Meeting.  Former President Jimmy Carter said he feels "quite at ease" about meeting leaders of the genocidal Hamas terror group, because the organization is "essential to a future peace with Israel."  Carter, interviewed Saturday for ABC News' "This Week," also said he would oppose a U.S. Olympic boycott and hopes all countries will join in the Beijing games.

Is Jimmy Carter in Violation of the Logan Act?  The Logan Act was enacted in 1799. … The origins of this law lie in the activities of Dr. George Logan, a Quaker pacifist doctor who tried to lessen tensions between the French Revolutionary government in Paris and the Federalists then leading the nascent American Republic, who tilted towards Britain.

Carter:  Arafat fought for just causes.  The former American president, who is on a week-long tour of the region, also met with Nasr a-Din Shaar, Hamas' deputy prime minister and education minister in Ismail Haniyeh's government.  The two embraced and kissed each other warmly.

Jimmy Carter Lays a Wreath at Arafat's Tomb.  Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter laid a wreath of red roses at the grave of Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat during a visit to the West Bank City of Ramallah on Tuesday [4/15/2008].

Jimmy Carter Embraces Hamas Official.  Former President Jimmy Carter embraced a leading Hamas figure Tuesday, according to participants in a meeting that infuriated Israeli officials already upset by Carter's freelance Mideast peace mission.  Carter also laid a wreath at the grave of Yasser Arafat, whom the Bush administration and many Israelis blame for the breakdown of peace talks seven years ago and the violence that followed.

Hamas' Useful Idiot:  When former president Jimmy Carter meets with terrorist Hamas leader Khaled Mashall this Friday [4/18/2008] in Damascus he will apparently violate two federal laws.  His eager defiance of the law threatens Americans at home and our troops abroad.

Jimmy Carter:  Emissary of Evil.  Jimmy Carter is an evil man.  It is painful to label a past president of the United States as a force for darkness.  But it is dangerous to let a man like Jimmy Carter stalk around the globe cloaked in the garb of American royalty, planting the seeds of Western civilization's destruction.

N.C. congresswoman wants Carter's passport revoked.  North Carolina's Rep. Sue Myrick wants America to "wake up" and stop allowing terrorism to proliferate — and if that means revoking the passport of a former U.S. president or examining the preaching of prison chaplains, that's what she's prepared to do.

The Damage of Jimmy Carter:  There he goes again!  Former President Jimmy Carter, acting out his stubborn, self-righteous moralism and his stunning vanity, persists in legitimizing terrorism.  How else can the Middle East see Carter's meeting in Syria with no less than the terrorist mastermind Khaled Mashaal, the leader of Hamas?

Jimmy Carter meets Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal in Syria.  Jimmy Carter, the former US President who brokered Israel's first peace accord with an Arab state in 1979, held a controversial meeting yesterday [4/18/2008] with the exiled leader of Hamas, the Islamist movement whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel.

Carter-Hamas Meeting Comes on 25th Anniversary of Deadly Terror Attack.  Former President Jimmy Carter met Friday [4/18/2008] with the exiled leader of Hamas and the militant group's deputy chief — on the 25th anniversary of the deadly bombing of the U.S. embassy in Beirut.

Jimmy Carter's excellent adventure:  So many terrorists, so little time.  It was everything a Palestinian terrorist could hope for:  a wreath laid on Arafat's tomb, wet kisses from a former US, and a high profile meeting with leaders of Hamas that flew in the face of US and European policy.  But that didn't faze Jimmy Carter, who relished the controversy, enjoyed the rough-cheeked nuzzles, and gave the top terrorist organizations the dubious legitimacy of a president who has joined the actively anti-Israel club.

Carter:  Gaza blockade is an atrocity.  Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip is an "atrocity," former US president Jimmy Carter said after meeting with Hamas officials in Cairo.  Carter also said he had asked Hamas officials to stop rocket attacks into Israel and defended his controversial meetings with the Palestinian terrorist group, saying it was necessary to talk to all parties to achieve peace.

Citizen Carter's Ego Trip:  Carter's current sojourn in personal diplomacy is just his most recent foreign foray in post-presidential folly since being voted out of office in Ronald Reagan's 1980 landslide.  During his global quest for relevance, he rarely missed an opportunity to denigrate our country's interests, helping him to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002.  But this week's expedition to Jerusalem, the West Bank, Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia may prove to be the most damaging excursion yet.

Jimmy Carter Makes Me Sick.  [It is] clear that these disastrous meetings aren't a question of misunderstood or overlooked facts, or a matter of persuasion based on such facts.  They come down to a stark choice between evil and good:  to meet with Hamas, or not to meet with Hamas; to lend legitimacy to a terror group, or to shun it; to degrade the office of the presidency, or to honor it.  Jimmy Carter has made all the wrong choices.

Jimmy Carter:  American Disgrace.  Carter, after the pounding he took in 1980 decided that America wasn't good enough to have him.  He turned against the democracy that gave him four years as President, after all if we didn't see the wisdom in reelecting him, if a democracy turned him down, then democracy itself must go.  Democracy, if it rejected Jimmy Carter, must be evil.  If it is evil then he will support the enemies of democracy.  Carter hasn't found a dictator, thug, or terrorist, that he hasn't wanted to embrace and validate.

Rice:  U.S. Warned Carter Not to Talk to Hamas.  Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Tuesday [4/22/2008] the Bush administration explicitly warned former President Jimmy Carter against meeting with members of Hamas, the Palestinian faction that controls the Gaza Strip and which is regarded by the U.S. as a terror group.  Rice, attending a regional meeting on Iraq's security and future, contradicted Carter's assertions that he never got a clear signal from the State Department.

J.C., Superstar.  Ex-President Jimmy Carter thinks Hamas is ready to accept Israel's existence and to "live as a neighbor next door in peace."  Has there ever been a former U.S. leader so deluded about historical reality?

The Democrats' Jimmy Carter Problem:  So much for Jimmy Carter's triumphal peace mission in the Middle East.  Like everything else he has done on foreign policy, the world's biggest tool for jihad propaganda created yet another bloody mess.

Jimmy Carter Disgraced For Many Reasons.  When it came time to judge Jimmy Carter's presidency, Americans voters thundered:  Carter, receiving 40% of the popular vote, carrying six states.  With sound reasons:  The prime rate had soared to 20%, inflation to 12.5% and unemployment to 7.5%.  More dismal than Carter's domestic failures is the continuing damage his blunders did to international security.

The Sad End of Jimmy Carter:  The problem is not that he is, or is not, talking to the Syrians — everyone does it to some degree.  It isn't that he went to Damascus to meet with the exiled head of Hamas — everyone, including the Israelis, will one day have to do that too, in accordance with that old rule which says that in the end it is with your enemies not your friends that you have to come to an understanding and make peace.  No.  The problem is how Jimmy Carter went about it.

The Lust in Jimmy Carter's Heart:  Jimmy Carter's recent negotiations with the terrorist group Hamas have been called a bad idea, ill-conceived, counterproductive, self-aggrandizing, and naïve. However, what if the meeting was not at all naïve, but a well-conceived execution of an unstated plan?  What would a former U.S. president do if he really lusted in his heart for the complete destruction of the Jewish state?

Jimmy Carter:  A National Embarrassment.  It would be easy to blame the 83-year-old former one-term president's frequent excursions into irrational behavior on senility were it not for the fact that he appears to have been senile most of his public life.  Any recitation of his frequent excursions into his personal Land of Oz where the good guys are bad and the bad guys are good sounds like a litany of Carter-esque fantasies.  His onetime White House Chief of Staff, Hamilton Jordan, once spoke about what he called Carter's "weirdness factor."

Jimmy Carter:  Weak Then, an Embarrassment Now.  Not only is Carter in the news over his anti-Israel, pro-Islamist screed, but he and Bill Clinton have decided to create a broad and "inclusive" Baptist movement to overcome what they see as a negative image of Baptists. … Carter and Clinton are the perfect pair for subverting Baptists because both of them have difficulty telling the truth.  The world would be better off if both of them kept their mouths shut, but this is unlikely to happen.

The madness of Jimmy Carter:  The book marks Carter's further disgraceful descent from ineffectual president and international do-gooder to apologist for the worst Arab tendencies. … Carter always finds a way to point a finger at Israel.  In doing so, Carter thinks he is providing an extraordinary public service.

Jimmy Carter:  Jew-Hater, Genocide-Enabler, Liar.  Even as Islamic Hitlerites gather in Iran to deny the first Holocaust of the Jews and to plot the second, former president Jimmy Carter tours America with a new book that describes Jews as racists and oppressors, and suggests they are also a conspiratorial mafia that intimidates "critics," controls America's media and war policy, and are therefore also the source of Islamic terrorism and the Arabs' genocidal campaign to eliminate them from the map of the Middle East.  In other words, Americans beware of the Jew in your midst.

Jimmy Carter, The Muslims and Other Catastrophes.  For me, personally, the worst thing about Carter's longtime affection for the world's worst tyrants, ranging from Yasser Arafat to Castro, Chavez and Ahmadinejad, is that it serves as a constant reminder — and source of endless embarrassment — that I actually voted for this anti-Semitic clodhopper!

Brave Jimmy Carter?  Having scolded the Western world for its "inordinate fear of communism," Jimmy Carter is now, 30 years later, attempting to legitimize the shameful Zionism Equals Racism resolution passed and later repealed by the United Nations.  The man has a seemingly unerring instinct for error.  "Palestine:  Peace Not Apartheid" is touted (by Carter himself) as an evenhanded analysis of the Israeli/Arab conflict — but one need go no further than the title to suspect otherwise.

Castro's friend.  We've discussed Jimmy Carter's legacy of friendship and warm support for the world's dictators many times already, notably on Venezuela, but a return to Carter's Cuba legacy may be an even worse experience, because of an unmistakable whiff of treason.

Jewish Group Slams Carter Over 'Apartheid' Analogy.  A row between American Jewish leaders and former President Jimmy Carter over his attempts to link Israel with apartheid deepened Tuesday [12/19/2006], when a leading Jewish group called for an apology, decrying the role Carter has taken "with regard to Israel and American Jews."

Why won't Carter debate his book?  You can always tell when a public figure has written an indefensible book:  when he refuses to debate it in the court of public opinion.  And you can always tell when he's a hypocrite to boot:  when he says he wrote a book in order to stimulate a debate, and then he refuses to participate in any such debate.  I'm talking about former president Jimmy Carter and his new book "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid."

Carter:  Sympathy for the devil.  Want to know where the Democratic Party stands and where America would be under their leadership?  Just ask Jimmy Carter.  Carter is certainly not bashful about bashing the United States, even on foreign soil or to the foreign press.  He sat for an interview with Der Spiegel recently and fired with both barrels at President Bush, "fundamentalist" Christians and Israel.  But do Carter's views represent those of the Democratic Party?  Well, he sure seems to think so.

Will Jimmy Carter please just go away?  How is it that Jimmy Carter, that sanctimonious phony who was a disaster during his four years in the White House and a disgrace in the quarter of a century since, can pass himself off as equal parts statesman and saint?  While most of us wished that he would simply slink back to his peanut farm after Ronald Reagan [defeated him] in '80, we hadn't realized how starved he was for the spotlight.

97 Reasons Democrats Are Weak On Defense And Can't Be Trusted To Govern In Wartime.  Today's Democrats are nothing like Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Kennedy, who with courage and decisive action kept on top of their jobs and aggressively confronted one national defense crisis after another.  Jimmy Carter, elected during the Cold War with the Soviet Union, and (1) believing Americans had an inordinate fear of communism, (2) lifted U.S. citizens' travel bans to Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam and Cambodia and (3) pardoned draft evaders.  President Carter (4) also stopped B-1 bomber production, (5) gave away our strategically located Panama Canal and (6) made human rights the central focus of his foreign policy.

Skip the book, read the column.  In a column published in last week's Boston Globe, former US president Jimmy Carter complained that ever since his book "Palestine:  Peace Not Apartheid" came out, he has been called "a liar, plagiarist, anti-Semite, racist, bigot, ignorant, etc."  I have not read the book.  But the column alone proves that some of those epithets are justified.

Castro's true legacy is a trail of blood.  For decades, journalists and celebrities have showered Cuba's despot with praise, extolling his virtues so extravagantly at times that if sycophancy were an Olympic sport, they would have walked off with the gold.  Norman Mailer, for example, proclaimed him "the first and greatest hero to appear in the world since the Second World War."


In Cuba it is illegal to change jobs, to change houses, to travel abroad, and to read books or magazines without the express approval of the state.  It is against the law for more than three Cubans to meet without permission.  Neighborhood Watch programs do not look out for criminals.  Instead, they monitor their fellow citizens — keeping track of neighbors' comings and goings, who visits them, and what radio stations they listen to.  The sense of community and the simple trust between human beings is gone.


Jimmy Carter's Li'l Ol' Stink Tank.  Jimmy Carter says he's just being fair-minded by continuously condemning Israel.  Meanwhile, his Carter Center draws ever more money from anti-Israel sources.  Follow the money.  The ex-president's irritating opinions on Mideast matters are one thing.  But the funding of his Atlanta think tank by big-money, state-linked Arab sources is quite another — and points to a conflict of interest.

Adviser to Jimmy Carter resigns in dispute over book on Palestinians and apartheid.  An adviser to former President Jimmy Carter and onetime executive director of the Carter Center has publicly parted ways with his former boss, citing concerns with the accuracy and integrity of Carter's latest book, "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid." … In a two-page letter explaining his action, [Kenneth] Stein called the book "replete with factual errors, copied materials not cited, superficialities, glaring omissions and simply invented segments."

Maps in Carter's book are questioned.  Harsh allegations over President Carter's new book on Israel and the Palestinians came into sharper focus Thursday [12/7/2006] when a former top aide to Carter said the book appeared to contain maps that were "unusually similar" to those in an earlier book.

Carter's book prompts more resignations.  Fourteen members of an advisory board to Jimmy Carter's human rights organization resigned on Thursday [1/11/2007] to protest his new book, which has been attacked as unfairly critical of Israel and riddled with inaccuracies.

As Carter controversy grows, Jews resign from center's board.  Fourteen Jewish members of the Carter Center's board of councilors have resigned to protest the former president's new book blaming Israel for the failure of Middle East peace efforts.

The same story appeared in the NY Times, but with no mention that the people who resigned were all Jewish:
Carter Center Advisers Quit to Protest Book.  Fourteen of the city's business and civic leaders resigned from the Carter Center's advisory board on Thursday to protest former President Jimmy Carter's recent criticisms of Israel and American Jewish political power.

Jimmy for Terror.  How did this man ever become president of the United States?  He's gone from failed president to friend of left-wing tyrants and global scold of anything that represents America's legitimate interests.  Now, in his bid to demonize Israel (recall that he secretly gave PR and political advice to Yasser Arafat), Carter has turned mythmaker — distorting history and misrepresenting facts, when he isn't making them up altogether.

America had enough of Jimmy Carter, now if he would just go away.  "When I studied history in college we were taught that James Buchanan was the worst president of the United States and we will not see the likes of him again; but no-one could have foreseen Jimmy Carter."  So wrote columnist Joseph Alsop.  No matter how hard the left tries, facts are facts and Carter remains the most inept president of the post-war period.

Jimmy Carter's Trail of Disaster:  It seems that almost wherever he goes and whatever positions he pushes, Jimmy Carter leaves a wake of devastation and disaster.

Jimmy Carter's Outrage:  Jimmy Carter is the worst.  The absolute worst.  He's more dangerous than most evil types because he runs around with a smile and looks like a well-intentioned peanut farmer.

Our Worst Ex-President.  It is sad that a President whose cardinal accomplishment was a peace accord between Israel and one of its neighbors should have devolved into such a seething enemy of Israel.  It will be sadder still if this same man, whose other achievement was to elevate the cause of human rights, ends his career by helping to make anti-Semitism acceptable once again in American discourse.  There is little doubt, in sum, that the electorate was right in 1980 when it judged Carter to be among our worst Presidents.  It is even more certain that history will judge him to have been our very worst ex-President.

Academic Separation and Jimmy Carter:  Given that these bishops and clergy believe wholeheartedly that the academic center of a president linked with a Methodist school [SMU] is inappropriate because of that president's actions, when will these bishops and clergy circulate and/or support a similar petition urging Emory University to cease its relationship with the Carter Center?

Carter Center OK, But Bush Library 'Heresy?'  While United Methodist leaders wrangle over whether a church-owned university should host George W. Bush's presidential library, another school from the same denomination houses a center dedicated to former President Jimmy Carter, with no similar controversy.  The apparent discrepancy has prompted a conservative group to ask:  "Is affiliation with the current administration the only 'heresy' unacceptable to liberal bishops and clerics?"

Flashback...
The Panama Canal Giveaway:  It was a terrible mistake for President Jimmy Carter and the U.S. Senate to give away our Panama Canal in 1978, and the majority of the American people knew it was wrong.  America had paid for this most expensive piece of real estate four times:  we paid Panama for sovereignty "in perpetuity," we bought the Zone again from Columbia, we paid the French Canal Company for its assets, and we bought the deeds from the private property owners, and then we built the Canal with our ingenuity and investment.

Carter blasts Bush on his global impact.  Former President Carter says President Bush's administration is "the worst in history" in international relations, taking aim at the White House's policy of pre-emptive war and its Middle East diplomacy.  The criticism from Carter, which a biographer says is unprecedented for the 39th president, also took aim at Bush's environmental policies and the administration's "quite disturbing" faith-based initiative funding.

The Editor says...
President Carter isn't exactly a master of international relations himself.  He is the president who sat paralyzed with timid indecision while more than fifty Americans were held hostage in Iran for over a year.

Carter's attack worth peanuts.  Looking at Carter's record, he is in no moral position to pass judgment. … Carter is the president who criticized Ronald Reagan's Cold War strategy, which would eventually lead to the collapse of Soviet communism.  If Carter had been around in the 1980s instead of Reagan, it is conceivable the U.S.S.R. would still exist and countries like Ukraine and Latvia would be under Soviet control.

Peanut Envy:  Almost always, when former President Jimmy Carter opens his big, smug mouth, he has already made the psychological mistake that is going to reduce his words to absurdity.  When he told the press last week that the Bush administration had aroused antipathy around the world, he might have been uttering no more than a banality.  But no, he had to try to invest it with a special signature flourish.

Democrats Need To Reprimand Carter — Now.  As if we haven't had enough sour grapes from Carter, this weekend he took his level of outrageous behavior to an all-time high. Speaking to a reporter from Arkansas, Carter labeled the Bush administration the "worst in history," and criticized everything from Bush's foreign policy to his privatization approach with social welfare.

Jimmy Carter:  Failure to Support Hamas 'Criminal'.  Former US President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that the United States, Israel and the European Union must stop favoring the Fatah terrorist group over the Islamist Hamas.

Carter's Nutzpah:  Has Jimmy Carter gone off the deep end?  He's now scolding the West for refusing to bankroll Hamas terrorists who've just seized power at gunpoint in Gaza.  It's a new low in coddling terrorism.

Jimmy, Bill, and Herb:  For a long time after [President] Carter headed back to Plains, Georgia, after a single frustration-laden term, I often thought that he was a better ex-President than he was a President. … But frankly, I liked Habitat for Humanity Jimmy much better than the Hurray for Hamas cheerleader who has lately been conducting his own misguided and counterproductive shuttle diplomacy without portfolio.

As a former officer in the US Navy, Carter should know, "Loose lips sink ships."
Carter says Israel has at least 150 atomic weapons.  Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has said Israel holds at least 150 nuclear weapons, the first time a U.S. president has publicly acknowledged the Jewish state's atomic arsenal.  Asked at a news conference at Wales's Hay literary festival on Sunday how a future U.S. president should deal with the Iranian nuclear threat, Carter put the risk in context by listing atomic weapons held globally.

Revoke Jimmy Carter's Security Clearance.  One of the perks that former presidents receive, if they choose to utilize it, is a daily security briefing from the CIA.  This is how Jimmy Carter came to know (or at least claim) that Israel has 150 nuclear weapons, considering the fact that the Israeli government has pursued a policy of deliberate ambiguity about its nuclear weapon capability.

More mush from the wimp.  Former president Jimmy Carter has apologized to Jews for actions he acknowledged have stigmatized Israel. ... Cynics have suggested that Carter's apparent change of heart has something to do with the fact that his grandson, Jason Carter, is seriously consideing a run for Georgia's state Senate from the district representing suburban DeKalb County.  The district includes an area around Emory University that has a substantial Jewish population.

I Do Not Forgive You, Jimmy Carter.  [Scroll down]  My reasoning is that Carter has spoken only with the prospect that his grandson, Jason, is anticipated to run for public office in Georgia in a congressional district with what is reported as "a vocal Jewish population."  It's politics. ... Carter's apology is cosmetic.  It is a Band-aid that ignores Israel's claim to statehood and sovereignty.

AP:  Carter's 'Built a Legacy That Few, If Any, American Ex-Presidents Can Match'.  Before buying into this effort to rehabilitate the reputation of — until Barack Obama came along — the worst president in many decades, we may want to reflect on Carter's post-presidency.  The late New York Democratic Senator Patrick Moynihan had Carter's number in 1980:  "Being unable to distinguish between our friends and our enemies, Carter has adopted our enemies' view of the world."  When the first President Bush asked for United Nations action in the Persian Gulf, Carter wrote to world leaders trying to block it.

A Surreal Presidency.  [Scroll down]  Jimmy Carter, as we all know, was (and is) the archetypal wimp who never met a theocrat he didn't like and gave us the Iran we know today while eventually selling out to the Saudis, the principal funders of his misnamed Peace Center.  Carter was conceivably the worst president in POTUS history until the present incumbent appeared to bring the highest office in the land into turmoil and disrepute.




Habitat for Humanity

Habitat house sits rejected.  The house is neat and new, with three bedrooms, white concrete walls and a pretty lawn.  And no family searching for a deal could ask for a more generous seller:  Habitat for Humanity.  But it seems Habitat can't find a buyer willing to live in Bartlett Park, even in a brand new house that comes with a zero percent interest loan.

Nashville Habitat for Humanity project stirs unease.  Habitat for Humanity's plans to build a 450-home community in northeast Nashville are creating tensions in the area as some middle-class residents worry about an infusion of low-income housing.  Marcus Jordan, president of a homeowners association near Habitat's site, said members of 37 neighborhood groups are banding together to protest Habitat's plan.

Man Arrested In Bank Robbery Set To Get Habitat For Humanity Home.  Saturday [9/29/2007], we were going to cover a story about a Tyler family getting a new home from Habitat For Humanity, but instead we discovered the father of that family is Derrick Hodges, 33.  Hodges was arrested Friday [9/28/2007] by Henderson Police for allegedly robbing a bank there back in November, and police say they believe he's involved in a string of bank robberies all over East Texas.  Habitat For Humanity says despite recent revelations, he's still set to get the house.

Charity homes built by Hollywood start to crumble.  Residents of a model housing estate bankrolled by Hollywood celebrities and hand-built by Jimmy Carter, the former US president, are complaining that it is falling apart.  Fairway Oaks was built on northern Florida wasteland by 10,000 volunteers, including Carter, in a record 17-day "blitz" organised by the charity Habitat for Humanity.  Eight years later it is better known for cockroaches, mildew and mysterious skin rashes.

No Fool Like ...  A New York Times column by Jimmy Carter indicates that Pyongyang is ready to talk peace with South Korea and the U.S.  The former president yet again shows the dangerous depth of his naïvité.

Jimmy Carter's Hypocritical Media Bashing Tour Continues.  Former President Jimmy Carter didn't start out bashing the media, as he often does today.  In fact, prior to the election of Barack Obama, and after the media's early-sixties love affair with all things Kennedy, it was Jimmy Carter's turn to be the media's annointed one.  Post-Watergate and Vietnam, his consultants and their liberal media accomplices created everybody's every man, Plains' peanut farmer, Jimmy Carter.
