Former US President Openly Accuses Donald Trump of Tapping a ‘Waiting Reservoir’ of Racism

2 Comments

This is from Independent Journal. 

Jimmy Carter the worst president in history until Obama was elected is now trying for the stupidest president.

Jimmy do America a big favor just STFU and go away.

Donald Trump has fired up voters this election cycle, but now another American president has joined the ranks of the opposing side.

President Jimmy Carter told The New York Times that he will be using his voice to “heal a racial divide among Baptists,” which have been torn apart by Trump’s candidacy.

The Times reports that Carter suggested the United States hasn’t dealt fully with racism. The former President said:

“I don’t feel good, except for one thing: I think the country has been reawakened the last two or three years to the fact that we haven’t resolved the race issue adequately.”

Further, Carter said Republicans’ negative reaction to a black president carried “a heavy racial overtone,” which has assisted in Donald Trump’s success. He said:

[Donald Trump has] tapped a waiting reservoir there of inherent racism … I think there’s a heavy reaction among some of the racially conscious Republicans against an African-American being president.”

President Carter will be holding a summit in Atlanta this fall with a racially-diverse group of Baptists to find solutions to racial inequalities.

Carter added that he’s also concerned with the policing of African-Americans, as well as Donald Trump’s singling out of Latinos in his immigration rhetoric, which he said is “a violation of basic human rights

In 1977 Jimmy Carter Said We Should Have Run Out of Oil by Now

Leave a comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

Jimmy Carter and his fellow loons are now telling us that Globull Warming/Climate Change is the problem now.

We see how credible the peanut boob and fellow loons were with their prediction that we would run out of oil.

In my corner of Indiana we have between 1.5-3 inches of Globull Warming/Climate Change.

Global Warming/Climate Change advocates claim that the debate is over. The science is settled. Debating the “science” behind the certainty of man-made Climate Change is like debating whether the earth is flat or round. So say supposedly 97 percent of all scientists. Rubbish.

A similar no-debate claim was made in the 1970s about peak oil — that there was a limited supply and we had nearly reached the limit. Keep this prediction in mind every time you hear some scientist tell us what the future will hold regarding this claim or that claim.

Like today’s Climate Change prognosticators, former PresidentJimmy Carter, using the science of his day in 1977, claimed that in 35 years the world would run out of oil.

 

Jimmy Carter_Peak Oil

In 2008, Salon magazine wrote that Carter’s “speech holds up pretty darn well today.” Here’s a very short video of Jimmy Carter making a similar predictive claim:

Now we’re swimming in the stuff. There’s so much oil being pumped out of the ground that the price of gasoline is less than a dollar in some places. If state, local, and federal taxes are taken out, and accounting for inflation, it borders on being cheaper than it’s ever been.

It’s not just about oil. Almost everything these prognosticators have claimed have turned out to be wrong — very wrong.

Paul Ehrlich made more apocalyptic predictions that scientists took seriously. Ehrlich makes today’s Global Warming Chicken Littles seem like Pollyanna. “The battle to feed all of humanity is over,” Ehrlich wrote. “In the 1970s and 1980s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.”1

In the first edition of his book The Population Bomb, Ehrlich stated:

“There is not enough food today. How much there will be tomorrow is open to debate. If the optimists are correct, today’s level of misery will be perpetuated for perhaps two decades into the future. If the pessimists are correct, massive famines will occur soon, possibly in the early 1970’s, certainly by the early 1980’s. So far most of the evidence seems to be on the side of the pessimists, and we should plan on the assumption that they are correct. After all, some two billion people aren’t being properly fed in 1968!”2

In 1969, Ehrlich continued with his predictions, stating, “By 1985 enough millions will have died to reduce the earth’s population to some acceptable level, like 1.5 billion people.” The same year, he predicted in an article entitled “Eco-Catastrophe!” that by 1980 the United States would see life expectancy drop to 42 years because of pesticides, and by 1999 its population would plummet to 22.6 million.

The facts tell a different story.

“All you can see is growing wealth around the world, increased caloric intake, increased life expectancy, increased per-capita wealth,” says Jerry Taylor, director of natural resource studies for the Cato Institute, a Washington research center that opposes most government intervention.

“We are increasingly conquering death around the world,” Taylor adds. “A century ago, human life expectancy was about 30 years. Now it’s 60 or 70 years. People are not starving to death. They are getting better food and they are living longer.”3

In the mid-seventies, with the release of his book The End of Affluence,4 Ehrlich outlined a Hollywood-style disaster scenario where he foresaw the President dissolving Congress “during the food riots of the 1980s,” followed by the United States suffering a nuclear attack for its mass use of insecticides. Like Malthus before him, in 1969 Ehrlich did not see much of a future for England. “I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.”5

In 1976, he went beyond predicting food scarcity and took it upon himself to make unfounded pronouncements about natural resources. “Before 1985, mankind will enter a genuine age of scarcity . . . in which the accessible supplies of many key minerals will be facing depletion.”6

Economist Julian Simon won a bet with Paul Ehrlich on whether the price of five strategic metals which Ehrlich chose (copper, chrome, nickel, tin, tungsten) would rise or fall in a ten-year period from 1980 to 1990. All five metals went down in price. Ehrlich lost the bet.7

First it was the inevitability of Global Cooling, then it was the inevitability of Peak Oil, and now it’s the inevitability of climate disaster if the government doesn’t step in and save Planet Earth. Of course, it’s going to cost a boatload of money, but it will be worth it!

America’s 5 Greatest Hunting Presidents

1 Comment

This is from OutDoorHub.

I am going to try to post a few things to give us a break from current events.

 

outdoorhub-americas-five-greatest-hunting-presidents-2015-03-02_21-04-15-792x600

                                    Theodore Roosevelt.

It should come as little surprise that a great many of our presidents are and were avid sportsmen, even though only about six percent of the American public hunts. In fact, by some reports more than half of the men in the Oval Office over the past 50 years were hunters—but the history of great hunting presidents stretches far beyond that. From the days of the original 13 colonies to the modern era, America has always carried the spirit of a frontier nation and it is an ideal embraced by many of our presidents. Here is our list of the five US presidents who were most likely to be found in the woods with a boomstick of some kind in hand.

1. Theodore Roosevelt

There is perhaps no more famous hunter in the history of the Oval Office than Theodore Roosevelt. Considered by many to be the “Father of Conservation,” Roosevelt was the iconic American sportsman and left behind a legacy that continues to guide conservationists and hunters today. Aside from his other contributions that raised America to the global stage, Roosevelt was fundamental in the formation of the United States Forestry Service and protecting more than 230 million acres of land for wildlife. Even his nickname, Teddy—which he is said to have despised—arose out of a hunting trip on which Roosevelt refused to shoot a young bear cub.

“The wildlife and its habitat cannot speak, so we must and we will,” Roosevelt is often quoted as saying.

Roosevelt first began to explore the outdoors as a young child to combat his asthma. Rigorous exercise and clean air eventually allowed him to overcome the illness, and in time Roosevelt became a renowned traveler. Indeed, the former Rough Rider hunted throughout North America and spearheaded a legendary hunting expedition into Central Africa on behalf of the Smithsonian Institution. His first experiences in hunting were in the backwoods of Maine, where he viewed the pursuit as an opportunity to learn about wildlife. As an adult, he loved the untamed wilds of the West.

“In hunting, the finding and killing of the game is after all but a part of the whole,” he wrote in The Wilderness Hunter. “The free, self-reliant, adventurous life, with its rugged and stalwart democracy; the wild surroundings, the grand beauty of the scenery, the chance to study the ways and habits of the woodland creatures—all these unite to give to the career of the wilderness hunter its peculiar charm. The chase is among the best of all national pastimes; it cultivates that vigorous manliness for the lack of which in a nation, as in an individual, the possession of no other qualities can possibly atone.”

2. George Washington

01washington

It is commonly known that George Washington had a keen interest in hunting dogs and hunting in general, but it is less known that the great general may have once called a cease fire during the American Revolutionary War to return a hunting hound. In an anecdotal story often repeated by dog breeders, American troops found a small dog wandering between the lines during the Battle of Germantown in 1777. The canine was picked up and presented to General Washington, who was told that it probably belonged to the British General William Howe. Washington’s advisers suggested that he keep the dog as a trophy, or to lower Howe’s morale, but Washington instead ordered the dog to be washed and cleaned. He then ordered a ceasefire and formally returned the dog to Howe in the middle of the battle.

Unfortunately for Washington, the Battle of Germantown ended in a solid British victory, but it did not detract from his show of sportsmanship. Before and after his military career, Washington was an avid waterfowler and fox hunter. It is suspected that he owned several dozen hunting dogs throughout his lifetime, although his time hunting from horseback was cut short after a bad fall later in his life.

3. Dwight D. Eisenhower

03eisenhower

Born in Texas and raised in Kansas, Dwight D. Eisenhower was a well-known hunter and angler. As a young boy, Eisenhower would often walk the seven miles from his home to a local creek to fish, and later discovered a love for hunting birds. As Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during WWII, Eisenhower oversaw the liberation of France and the invasion of Germany, yet the general also made time to go on a partridge hunt in North Africa. A lull on the Italian front allowed Eisenhower to take a rare day off, which he spent roaming around looking for birds with his chief-of-staff, General Walter Smith.

“There are three (sports) that I like all for the same reason—golf, fishing, and shooting—because they take you into the fields,” Eisenhower was quoted as saying once. “They induce you to take at any one time two to three hours, when you are thinking of the bird or ball or the wily trout. Now, to my mind, it is a very healthful, beneficial kind of thing, and I do it whenever I get a chance.”

4. Grover Cleveland

Grover Cleveland hunted just about everything and fished just about everything. According to some sources, the outdoors became an obsession to him, which he wholeheartedly admitted in his writings.

“There can be no doubt that certain men are endowed with a sort of inherent and spontaneous instinct which leads them to hunting and fishing indulgence as the most alluring and satisfying of all recreations,” he wrote in his book Fishing and Shooting Sketches. “In this view, I believe it may be safely said that the true hunter or fisherman is born, not made. I believe, too, that those who thus by instinct and birthright belong to the sporting fraternity and are actuated by a genuine sporting spirit, are neither cruel, nor greedy and wasteful of the game and fish they pursue; and I am convinced that there can be no better conservator the sensible and provident protection of game and fish than those who are enthusiastic in their pursuit, but who, at the same time, are regulated and restrained by the sort of chivalric fairness and generosity, felt and recognized by every true sportsman.”

Whether it was camping, fishing, or hunting a vast array of species, Cleveland was in his element outside. According to some sources, the president even assigned names to his individual rifles.

5. Jimmy Carter

JimmyCarterPortrait2

Before his term in the White House or as Governor of Georgia, Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer raised in rural Georgia. Carter once commented that he had a fishing pole and rifle in his hand since he could remember, and spent the majority of his youth hunting and fishing near Plains, Georgia. Those habits didn’t change once Carter took office, nor after.

“I have used weapons since I was big enough to carry one, and now own two handguns, four shotguns and three rifles, two with scopes,” he wrote in an op-ed toThe New York Times in 2009. “I use them carefully, for hunting game from our family woods and fields, and occasionally for hunting with my family and friends in other places. We cherish the right to own a gun and some of my hunting companions like to collect rare weapons. One of them is a superb craftsman who makes muzzle-loading rifles, one of which I displayed for four years in my private White House office.”

Carter spent much of his vacation time during his term out hunting or fishing, despite taking only 79 days off the job—the least of all modern presidents.

As always, this list is just our opinion, so feel free to chime in with your opinion as well. Who do you think should count among the greatest hunting presidents?

Former DNC Chair Gets Schooled After Calling Scott Walker This One Word For Not Finishing College

1 Comment

This is from Independent Journal Review.

So Scott Walker did not finish college and is not qualified to be president.

Let’s look at some as Sgt. Andy Micklin used to call them college boys that were president and look at their record.

Barack Obama the worst president ever, Jimmy Carter  the second worst president, Gerald Ford,Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson.

These the college boys that are/were president that their term in office that was less than stellar.

 

After former DNC Chair Howard Dean calls Scott Walker “unknowledgeable” and unqualified to be President of the United States for not having a college degree, the MSNBC panel reminds him of all the presidents who would have also been unqualified for office with those same standards.

Three stand out Presidents who never graduated college? George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Harry Truman.

According to the Lumina Foundation over 60% of Americans haven’t graduated college. A match up of Hillary Clinton vs. Scott Walker would offer many contrasts, but an interesting wrinkle would be who could better connect with the majority of Americans without a degree.

Would you vote for a presidential candidate who didn’t finish college?

Jimmy Carter Blames Recent Terror Attacks On ‘Palestinian Problem’

2 Comments

This is from The Daily Caller.

Jimmy Carter is Hell Bent on regaining the title of Americas worst president.

Jimmy Plains, Georgia just called,they want you to come home as they miss their village idiot.

 

https://social.newsinc.com/media/json/69017/28346502/singleVideoOG.html?videoId=28346502&type=VideoPlayer/16×9&widgetId=2&trackingGroup=69017

When in doubt, blame Israel — at least that seems to be the habit of America’s least respected former president.

In the wake of the Islamist terror attacks in France against cartoonists and Jews, former President Jimmy Carter’s first reaction was to pin the motivation for such terrorism on Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. Appearing on “The Daily Show” Monday, Carter was asked by host Jon Stewart whether the violence the world saw on the streets of Paris was actually fueled by something else other than Islamic extremism.

 “Well, one of the origins for it is the Palestinian problem,” Carter replied. “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.”

Carter didn’t explain how solving the Israeli-Palestinian issue would in any way resolve the violent conflicts currently engulfing the Arab world, including the Syrian civil war, the Islamic State’s takeover of part of Iraq and its brutal implementation of Islamic law, and the conflict between the Egyptian government and the Muslim Brotherhood, just to name a few. Nor did he detail how the “Palestinian problem” helps explain why three French Muslims murdered innocent French Jews buying groceries for the coming Sabbath and cartoonists preparing the next issue of their paper. (READ: The Truth About Muslim Violence)

Carter did go on to warn that the world is witnessing “a new evolutionary development in terrorism.”

“But I think this is a new evolutionary development in terrorism, where people go into Syria, they get trained there, they have a passport from France, from Great Britain or from the United States,” he added. “They stay there for a few months and learn how to be a terrorist and then they come back through Turkey and you know they have been there and you know who they are. And I think this event in Paris is going to waken up the people in charge of security to watch those people more closely than they have in the past — and not single out all of the Muslims in the country.”

Jimmy Carter Accidentally Predicts Obama Presidency 30 Years Ago? (VIDEO)

1 Comment

This is from The Tea Party Bulletin.

While Jimmy Carter was speaking about things under then President Gerald Ford.

Fast forward to today, these things describe Barack Obama.

 

Jimmy Carter is known as a nice guy. Ineffective as a President and world leader, but nice.

Which means that you know you’re in trouble when Jimmy Carter, the former President who has done more actual good in the world after he left office than when he was in office, can only manage to give you a backhanded compliment. It’s pretty harsh when the best that Jimmy Carter can sayabout you is:

“He’s done the best he could under the circumstances. His major accomplishment was Obamacare, and the implementation of it now is questionable at best.”

Yep. “[Q]uestionable at best.” And, “He’s done the best he could under the circumstances.”

Sounds rather like a “thank you for playing!” kind of compliment. The kind of situation where you give the little kid a trophy just for showing up, not for actually playing or winning any games.

And Carter knows about doing the best he can under difficult circumstances. I mean, many of us remember the gas lines, the Iran hostage crisis, runaway inflation, the lack of American confidence in our leadership and our country. Change a few dates and names, and this sounds suspiciously like the last six years.

See, when Carter was in office, we remember praying that something would change and that we would get out of this economic bog and again feel like a people that could appreciate being American. We remember hoping for change. When Obama was sworn into office, it didn’t take long before we were doing the same thing.

It’s painfully apparent that Carter and Obama are cut from the same cloth. Maybe Obama means well (many would question that) and, I think, Carter meant well. But the road to Hell is paved with those good intentions.

Steven R. Covey tells the story of being asked which he would prefer: a doctor with good character who would be honest and have good intentions or a doctor who is competent. Covey said the ideal is to have both.

I’ve known many liberals with good intentions. They genuinely meant well. What they lacked was competence in the sense that they misunderstand the world and human nature. And without competence, their good intentions just leave a mess that the competent have to clean up.

The video below says it all.

Jimmy Carter’s Grandson Running for Governor Says Government “Doles Out . . . Rights”

1 Comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

I wonder if Jason Cater has ever read The Declaration Of Independence?

If not Jason should pay close attention to the following passage and understand the government does not “Dole Out Rights.”

Understand this Jason if need be we will enforce the part about altering or abolishing government..

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government

 

Jason Carter is the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter. He’s running for governor in Georgia as a Democrat on his grandfather’s tattered coattails. “Carter’s biggest asset appears to be that he is the grandson of the nation’s most ineffective president, former peanut farmer Jimmy Carter. As evidenced by Carter’s record as a state senator, the apple, or perhaps more appropriately the peanut, doesn’t fall very far from the tree.”

This is just what Georgia needs, a Jimmy Carter clone as governor. Please spare us.

 

A couple of weeks ago Jason Carter said the following about same-sex marriage:

“This issue is one that divides people in this state in different contexts but I’ll tell you where I stand. I don’t believe you can ever tell a church who to marry. I don’t believe that you can ever tell someone’s religion what to believe. But the government should dole out those rights and responsibilities equally.”

If the government can “dole out rights,” it can also define the extent of those rights that could result in the exclusion of the rights of others.

Apparently Jason Carter is not following what has happened to a florist, photographer, and baker over the issue of same-sex marriage. They were fined for not supporting same-sex marriage in their businesses and were forced to attended sensitivity (government mandate re-education) classes.

Then there’s the case of the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, where the city council is forcing the owners to perform same-sex marriages or face stiff fines and even imprisonment if they do not comply.

Jason Carter must also be unaware of what’s happening in Houston, Texas, where the legal arm of the city government is demanding the following from pastors who took a stand against a same-sex civil rights ordinance.

The city is demanding that pastors “‘turn over, among other things: ‘[a]ll speeches, presentations, or sermons related to [the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance] HERO, the Petition, Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality, or gender identity.”

The subpoenas have been amended to exclude “sermons.” The problem is, a sermon is a form of speech. And why is lesbian Mayor Annise Parker mentioned? What does mentioning her name have to do with whether the names on the petitions are valid or not?

Jason Carter does not understand that governments are imposing stiff penalties on anybody – church related or not – that will not comply with the blatant discrimination laws being imposed on businesses and religious establishments that do not want to participate in same-sex marriages.

I suspect that there are a lot of Catholic priests that won’t marry non-Catholics or Rabbis that won’t marry non-Jews. Many Protestant ministers won’t marry non-Christians.

Some will claim that IRS law forbids churches from addressing political issues. This law, posted on the IRS website is the one usually cited I order to silence pastors:

“Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office.”

First, the petition drive was not on behalf of or in opposition to a candidate; it was in opposition to a piece of legislation. Second, the First Amendment is not a party to the city’s request for subpoenas. The Houston City Council in not a federal jurisdiction. The IRS and its laws have no authority over a petition drive. Third, there is nothing in the Texas Constitution that prohibits pastors from engaging in politics.

Article I, Sec. 8: FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PRESS; LIBEL. Every person shall be at liberty to speak, write or publish his opinions on any subject, being responsible for the abuse of that privilege; and no law shall ever be passed curtailing the liberty of speech or of the press.

Notice that it does not say “except pastors who speak on political issues.”

Fourth, even if what is going on in Houston was a 501(c)(3) issue, it would be unconstitutional since the First Amendment makes it clear that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

This constitutional prohibition nullifies what the 1954 IRS regulation states since it was Congress that made the law.

The courts have taken over the same-sex marriage issue. It’s a fait accompli as states are being overruled by unelected judges, going against state legislatures, and the will of the people. Jason Carter, as well as Democrats generally, is OK with it since these are their kind of judges. Why even have governors and state legislatures if judges can by force of law tell a state what to do? Why is Jason Carter even running for office? He should work for making judges judicial gods, something they already are.

Jimmy Carter Accuses Obama of Violating U.S. Constitution

1 Comment

This is from The Daily Signal.

The second worst president calling out the worst president in American.

I have survived both administrations so far.

The reason I say so far I have numerous serious health issues and there is Obamacare.

 

 

Former President Jimmy Carter sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign policy yesterday, saying it’s often “hard to figure out what his policy is.”

In an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the nation’s 39th president accused Obama of violating the U.S. Constitution with drone strikes that killed Americans.

>>> Drone Strikes: The Legality of U.S. Targeting Terrorists Abroad

On the current threat of ISIS, Carter wasn’t any kinder to Obama. “First of all, we waited too long,” he said. “We let the Islamic State build up its money, capability and strength and weapons while it was still in Syria.”

Last month, the former Nobel Peace Prize winner came out in favor of attacking the Islamic State.

Jimmy Carter Tells Islamic Conference: “Principles of Allah” Are Key to Peace

Hat Tip Gateway Pundit.

He was born ignorant and has been going downhill ever since.

Also Carter fell too many times on his head while working for Habitat for Humanity.

 

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.

ISIS forces, in the name of Allah, slaughtered 250 half-naked Syrian soldiers this week in a desert ditch.

isis slaughter soldiers

ISIS terrorists believe they are also doing Allah’s will.

 

The Detroit News reported, via Religion of Peace:

 

During a speech at the annual convention for the Islamic Society of North America on Saturday, former President Jimmy Carter said peace between Jews and Muslims in the Middle East is a dream he still prays can be achieved.

“You can’t bring peace to the Middle East without justice and human rights for the Palestinians,” Carter told a packed hall at Cobo Center. “When my prayers are answered and we have peace in that Holy Land then the Israelis and all their neighbors will be blessed to live in peace and prosperity.”

Carter spoke mainly about preventing violence against women and girls, encouraging all present to fight for equal rights for both sexes.

“One thing that all men can do is to be sure that you treat your wife as you would like to be treated yourself,” Carter said, amid cheers. “My hope is all Christians, all Muslims, all people of other faiths, even those who don’t have one, will join in this crusade to end the plight of our wives, our sisters, our daughters.”

He spoke at length about prostitution, rape on college campuses, female genital mutilation and parents in some countries strangling their daughters because they want to have sons. The audience of men, women and children were rapt and responded with applause when he quoted verses from the Quran and the Bible illustrating the equality of the sexes.

“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.”

At an earlier luncheon on Saturday Carter detailed the work his foundation does and told Muslim Americans to bring peace and justice to all those around them.

“We are all Americans in a system that allows basic human rights: peace, justice and the ability to treat each other as equals,” Carter told a crowd of about 1,000 who had paid $200 a plate to attend the fundraiser luncheon. “I hope all of you will use the principals of Allah to bring peace and justice to all.”

The Islamic Society of North America is reportedly an influential front for the promotion of the Wahhabi political, ideological and theological infrastructure in the United States and Canada.
