Former Democrat President Jimmy Carter Says, “I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president”
CARTER WAS A TERRIBLE PRESIDENT, BUT A GOOD MAN …
Politics really does make strange bedfellows. With the LEFT, Democrats and the MSM constantly and unfairly attacking President Donald Trump, it is former Democrat President Jimmy Carter who came to his defense. President Carter said that, “I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about. Carter went on to say, “I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.” Carter may have been one of the worst presidents in modern times; however, no one can dispute he is not a good man. Kudos to Jimmy Carter for trying to smooth the divide and stating the obvious situation with the bias media.
Former President Jimmy Carter in a new interview defended President Trump for facing a harsher media environment than his predecessors.
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about,” Carter told The New York Times in an interview published Saturday.
Carter pointed to the reports that question Trump’s mental stability as a sign the press is going too far in scrutinizing him.
“I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation,” Carter continued.
Lawmakers and critics alike have also repeatedly questioned Trump’s fitness for office.
Bill Clinton Asked for State Department Permission to Meet with Russian Nuclear Official During Obama Uranium Decision
I AM SURE BILL CLINTON JUST WANTED TO DISCUSS HIS GRANDCHILDREN WITH THE RUSSIANS …
We have a Russian collusion scandal, but it is not what you have been lead to believe … There is yet more eye opening reporting from The Hill with regards to the real Russian corruption, bribery and interference with regards to the Clinton’s and the Obama-Russian uranium deal. As Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State during this deal, $235 million was so generously donated to the Clinton Foundation from Uranium One, former president Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock. Hmm, yeah, no quid pro quo, collusion, bribery or corruption here. Move along. Are you serious? The federal government has spend over a year looking into some Russian-Trump collusion scandal with the willing liberal media reporting at nauseam only to find there is not there, there. But there is a Russian corruption and bribery scandal with evidence, it just happens to involve Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton. Imagine that. Too bad this does not fit the liberals, LEFT’s, Hate-Trumpers and MSM’s agenda, otherwise we would have a scandal that dwarfs Watergate actually reported.
As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.
“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.
The email went to two of Hillary Clinton’s most senior advisers, Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills.
The documents don’t indicate what decision the State Department finally made. But current and former aides to both Clintons told The Hill on Thursday the request to meet the various Russians came from other people, and the ex-president’s aides and State decided in the end not to hold any of the meetings with the Russians on the list.
Bill Clinton instead got together with Vladimir Putin at the Russian leader’s private homestead.
“Requests of this type were run by the State Department as a matter of course. This was yet another one of those instances. Ultimately, President Clinton did not meet with these people,” Angel Urena, the official spokesperson for the former president, told The Hill.
Aides to the ex-president, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation said Bill Clinton did not have any conversations about Rosatom or the Uranium One deal while in Russia, and that no one connected to the deal was involved in the trip.
Bishop James E. Dukes of Chicago’s Liberation Christian Center Urges Chicago Mayor to Remove George Washington Statue
AND THIS IS WHERE IT IS INTENDED TO GO, THE NED GAME … REMOVING THE FOUNDING FATHERS FROM HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.
The other day during the press conference President Donald Trump asked, when does the taking down of statues stop (VIDEO)? The MSM and late night talk show idiots laughed and made jokes. Now a Chicago pastor has answered that question, they want a statue of George Washington, our first President, removed from a park and the park renamed. the far-Left is not going to stop until they have removed all of the history as they go after Our Founding Fathers. Why? Because George Washington owned slaves. UNREAL This is where it ends. These people hate America. The pastor also wanted President Andrew Jackson’s name removed from a local park. Of course he did. America, wake the hell up … this i the end game of the LEFT!
The pastor also suggested Washington Park could be named after former Mayor Harold Washington, and Jackson Park could be named after civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson or singer Michael Jackson. Really? A park named after an individual suspected of child molestation? If this wasn’t so serious, it would be laughable.
Just curious, is one of the issues that the liberal MSM and the LEFT have with Trump is that he is always ahead of them and gets it right? Also, the fact that he has a backbone, unlike many Republicans, and stands up to them. A note to the Republican party, that’s why Donald Trump was elected, he has CO-JONES!
President Trump’s question to reporters on Tuesday about the possibility of tearing down historical monuments has been answered by a Chicago pastor: “It’s time.”
Bishop James E. Dukes of Chicago’s Liberation Christian Center made headlines in the Windy City on Wednesday for calling on Mayor Rahm Emanuel to rename Washington Park and remove a statue of the first U.S. president over his ties to slavery. Mr. Dukes told his Facebook flock that “it’s time” after Mr. Trump sparred with reporters over efforts to expunge Civil War-era monuments from existence.
“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?” Mr. Trump asked reporters on Tuesday as he spoke on last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Protests over the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. resulted in the killing of Heather Heyer, 32, when suspect James Alex Fields, 20, plowed his vehicle into a crowd.
“It’s time. Please read my letter to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and The Chicago Park District,” Mr. Dukes wrote on Facebook Tuesday night. “I’m calling on them to change the names of Washington and Jackson Park. Slave owners do not deserve the honor of our children playing in parks named after them. There is no way a Native American Community would allow a General Custer Park or a Jewish Community allow a Gestapo Park in their community.”
KRAUTHAMMER PRAISES TRUMP …
Syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer, an individual who is hardly pro-Trump, had nothing but praise for President Donald Trump’s speech in Poland. Krauthammer stated, Trump was praising The West, not just the United States. Krauthammer went on to say that Trump’s speech was one of the most anti-Russian speech since Ronald Reagan. Krauthammer went on to sy that Trump savaged Russia for their past actions against the Poles, the 40 years of Soviet occupation and present day. Thus dispelling the notion of Democrats and the LEFT that Trump is in bed with Putin and Russia. The images and words make that almost impossible to believe.
Sorry, the LEFT is going to have a hard time spinning this speech to the common sense people of the United States and the world.
HMM, IS THIS A TRICK QUESTION?
A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds what we already know about current politics of today, its polarized. According to the poll, some consider Obama great, however, plenty find him among the worst. Personally, I would never consider him great, as I would challenge those who do to name what he did to attain greatness? During his presidency Obama increased the national debt more than all previous presidents combined. His signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, is a disaster and imploding. It will eventually be repealed and replaced. As Obama leaves office, the Democrat party is in ruin. As we ring in 2017, the Republican party will control the presidency, the House, the Senate, the state governors and the state legislatures. The Democrat party has been pushed far left and has no bench as well. The 8 years of Obama can best be described as uncertain. The meddlesome regulations crushed industry and his Pollyanna, politically correct views on terrorism were dangerous. However, what might be most disappointing and considered an epic fail on the part of Obama is his promise of change. Many took that as Obama would be a bridge between the races and he would bring a welcome change to race relations in the United States. Instead, he did just the opposite. Obama was the divider in chief, pitting black against white, rich against poor and the political establishment against the common everyday people.
America’s first vote on President Barack Obama’s place in history teeters on the edge as some find him a great president – but plenty find him among the worst, a new McClatchy-Marist poll finds.
As Obama heads toward the exit, almost the exact same number of Americans put him at the top as put him at the bottom: 16 percent said he’ll be remembered as one of the nation’s best presidents; 17 percent called him among the worst chief executives ever.
The rest are in the middle, with 24 percent calling him above average, 28 percent calling him average and 14 percent saying he was below average.
Obama’s current job approval numbers are near his all-time high. But that doesn’t translate into a comfortable place in history. He has been and remains a polarizing figure.
“It follows party lines,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion in New York, which conducted the survey, of the longer views of Obama’s presidency.
Barack Obama might not be the worst ever, but when it comes to accomplishments and benefits to the US, he cannot be considered great. He belongs in the bottom 4th of those who have held the office. At no time will we ever confuse Obama with George Washington or Abraham Lincoln.
