Former President Jimmy Carter Says, Obama’s Successes on World Stage “Have Been Minimal” … “US’s Influence & Prestige & Respect in the World is probably Lower than it was 6 or 7 Years Ago.” (VIDEO)
JIMMY CARTER SAYS OBAMA HAS HAD MINIMAL SUCCESSES ON THE WORLD STAGE … I GUESS THAT IS A GOOD THING FOR THE WORLD.
Former President Jimmy Carter ripped Barack Obama in a recent interview stating that Obama’s successes on the world stage “have been minimal.” WOW, that says a lot coming from this disaster of a president on the world stage. Not only did Carter say that Obama’s accomplishments were minimal, he also stated that US influence and prestige in the world was lower than it was 6 or 7 years ago. But Carter doesn’t want to be called a racist so he says’ he doesn’t blame Obama for his failures on the world stage. Of course Obama isn’t to blame, why would anyone in the Democrat party hold him accountable for his failures? Um, then who is to blame, GWB? Or would it be Hillary Clinton’s fault? After all, Carter proclaimed John Kerry was “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had.”
After proclaiming John Kerry “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had,” Carter dumped cold water on Obama’s record abroad.
“On the world stage, I think [Obama’s accomplishments] have been minimal,” Carter said. “I think he has done some good things domestically, like health reform and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than when he took over.”
“I would say the U.S.’s influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago,” Carter said.
SORRY WALMART, IGNORANCE IS NOT AN EXCUSE … I THOUGHT WALMART SAID THEY DON’T WANT TO OFFEND ANYONE?
So the Confederate flag is worse than the ISIS one, really? It appears that is the case when Chuck Netzhammer, a resident of Slidell, LA, was able to get a cake made at Walmart featuring an ISIS battle flag but was rejected when he asked for a Confederate flag cake. In the wake of the death of 9 black church goers in Charleston, SC at the hands of a racist, Walmart removed all traces of the Confederate battle flag from its stores and websites and stated they did so because they don’t want to “offend” anyone. I guess they meant everyone but ISIS. How can you not know what the ISIS flag looks like, it has been in the news over the past several years more than the Confederate flag.
Wal-Mart is apologizing for a store in Slidell, La., which refused to bake a cake designed as the Confederate battle flag but accepted a request to bake a cake that looked like the ISIS battle flag.
Chuck Netzhammer, a local resident, presented his story in a YouTube video Friday, saying, “Alright, Wal-Mart, you’ve got some explaining to do. I went to go buy a cake from you all the other day with this image on it and y’all wouldn’t do it. I went back yesterday and managed to get the ISIS battle flag [cake instead].”
I wonder if WALMART will make a Nazi flag cake?
How can you be that uninformed that you don’t know the battle flag of the biggest, most vicious terrorist killers on the planet? What cave does this baker live in? Who finds this amazing in a post-911 world that a Confederate flad from the 1860′s is looked upon as worse than a radical Islamist battle flag whose followers are beheading and burning alive their victims? But that is what you get when the MSM has an agenda.
The Daily caller was contacted by Randy Hargrove, a spokesman for Wal-Mart, who said in an email, “Our local store made a mistake. The cake in the video should not have been made and we apologize.”
Hargrove later explained to TheDC, “We made the decision to stop selling Confederate flag related items promoting the flag’s image. For that reason we did not make the cake. [Netzhammer] brought in the other image of ISIS and really, what happened, was our associate didn’t recognize what that image was and what it meant or it wouldn’t have been made.”

Police Press Conference Following the Capture of David Sweat
Ahead of the 4th of July Weekend, there is a 6th victim at a North Carolina beach in the last two weeks.
Officials say a 17-year-old boy is the latest victim of a shark attack off North Carolina’s coast, the second attack in as many days and the sixth attack in the past two weeks.
Rescue personnel and park rangers responded to the boy, who received what they described as injuries to his right calf, buttocks and both hands while swimming in the Outer Banks on Saturday, according to a post on the National Park Service’s Facebook page. The boy was swimming with others when he was bitten, but no one else was hurt, officials said.
The unidentified teenager was treated at the scene before being airlifted to a Norfolk, Virginia, hospital, the park service said.

UNREAL … Univision TV Executive Compares Donald Trump to Racist Killer Dylann Roof (UPDATE: The Donald Responds)(Trump Sues Univision for Breaking Contract)
AND THESE ARE THE FOLKS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO HOST A PRESIDENTIAL FORUM?
The President of Programming and Content at Univision compared GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump to racist murderer Dylann Roff today on Instagram. REALLY? Could you imagine what the outrage would be if Obama was compared to a murderer? It wasn’t long before the pics were taken down, but the damage had been done. How irresponsible could one be who claims to be in the media?
How do you say media bias in Spanish?
“I think he should be ashamed of himself. He deleted it. And the lawyers are going to have a field day. As you know they broke a contract… In my opinion a tremendous amount of pressure was put on, frankly by Mexico, by the leaders of Mexico put on Univision because they didn’t like what I was saying about trade… Frankly, a tremendous amount of people are coming in. We have some horrible people coming in, not just from Mexico but from all over. And they are killers and they are people we don’t want in this country… Everybody knows what I’m saying is true, Mexico knows what I’m saying is true.”
UPDATE I: Further attacks and backlash against The Donald … Chilean actor Cristian de la Fuente resigned as host of the Miss USA pageant, Calls Trump a Clown.
The Chilean actor who was slated to host the Miss USA pageant pulled out even before Univision pulled the plug, saying Donald Trump was “ignorant” and a “clown.”
Cristian de la Fuente, who stars in “Devious Maids,” went nuts on Trump for calling Mexicans drug dealers and rapists.
Cristian is not alone in his disdain. Roselyn Sanchez, his “Devious Maids” co-star, also pulled out and Univision officially pulled the plug Thursday morning.
Univision is the biggest Spanish-language broadcaster in the United States, so its decision is a blow to the Miss Universe Organization, a joint venture of Trump and Comcast’s NBCUniversal division.
Last week, in his speech announcing a run for president, Trump deplored immigrants from Mexico who “have lots of problems” and are “bringing those problems to us.”
“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists,” he said, adding, “and some, I assume, are good people.”
UPDATE II: Trump Sues Univision.
Donald Trump intends to sue Univision for breach of contract and defamation after the media company announced it would renege on a five-year contract for broadcast rights to the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants, his lawyer said Thursday.
The announcement comes hours after Trump told the On Media blog that Univision was defaulting on an “iron-clad” $13.5 million contract, which he said it had no right to terminate
One Person Decapitated & Several Injured in Islamic Terror Attack on a US Owned factory in France (Update: One Terrorist Killed, One Arrested)
ISLAMIC TERRORIST ATTACK IN FRANCE …
The BBC is reporting that there has been a terrorist attack at a factory in France that has left one individual dead and several injured. The attack occurred around 10:00 local time (08:00 GMT), when a car crashed through the gates of the US owned company Air Products plant in southeastern France’s town of Saint-Quentin Fallavier. Officials said that set off an explosion. French President Francois Hollande has called this an act of terrorism. President Hollande stated the decapitated body was found with “inscriptions” on it and said the attack bore the hallmarks of terrorism, adding that security has been stepped up at sensitive sites in France. The decapitated body was found with Islamic flags placed nearby.
A man has been decapitated and several others injured at a factory in France in what President Francois Hollande has called a terrorist attack.
Two men drove into the Air Products gas factory near Lyon, French officials said, before several explosions were heard.
One of the suspects, who was investigated by police in 2006, has been arrested.
The dead man was found with Arabic inscriptions on him and an Islamist flag was found near the site.
At a press conference from Brussels, Mr Hollande confirmed that two attackers had targeted the chemicals factory in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, crashing into it in a car.
“We have no doubt that the attack was to blow up the building. It bears the hallmarks of a terrorist attack,” he said
UPDATE I: Multiple Arrests After Factory Attack.
A 30 year old has been arrested who is reportedly known to authorities. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the suspect was believed to be from the area and had been flagged in 2006 for ties to Islamic extremists, but surveillance was dropped in 2008.
France’s top security official says a man arrested in the attack at a gas factory in southeastern France was known to intelligence services for possible ties to Islamic extremists but had no arrest record.
Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve says the investigation has just begun and cautioned against jumping to conclusions.
The suspect had been flagged as an extremist in 2006 and then police monitoring dropped off two years later, according to Cazeneuve.
Louis Farrakhan Says, “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”
I know this is difficult for many of you to say and admit, Rush Limbaugh was right.
It did not take Louis Farrakhan long to prove conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh correct regarding the LEFT going after the American flag next. In an interview with WMAL, Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”. This hateful race-baiter went on to say, “They Don’t Give a Damn About Them 9.? Just days earlier Rush Limbaugh said, “And I’ll make another prediction to you. The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag.”
Hmm, who is spewing the hate?
Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.
Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”
He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”
Later, he declared, “I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag,” comments that were meant with cheers and applause.
C’mon LEFT, c’mon Media Matters, c’mon race-baitors, says it … RUSH WAS RIGHT!
New York Prison Guard Gene Palmer Arrested for Providing Tools to Escaped Prisoners Richard Matt & David Sweat
57 year old prison guard Gene Palmer has been arrested in connection with the prison escape of convicted murderers Richard Matt and David Sweat from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York. Palmer was charged Wednesday with promoting prison contraband in the first degree, two counts of tampering with physical evidence, and one count of official misconduct. According to court documents, Gene Palmer is accused of accepted paintings from the two convicts in return for tools. Palmer is said to have destroyed the paintings following the prison escape. Palmer attorney stated that his client “did not know that Joyce Mitchell had conned him into giving contraband to these two individuals.” Palmer worked at the prison for 27 years. Bail was set at 50,000 bond or $25,000 cash bail.
NBC News – New York Prison Guard Gene Palmer Arrested.
A guard at the New York prison where two convicted killers escaped earlier this month accepted paintings from them in return for tools, according to court documents.
Gene Palmer is alleged to have later destroyed the paintings — burning some of them in a fire pit at his home and burying others in woods nearby — after Richard Matt and David Sweat escaped the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora on June 6.
Palmer was charged Wednesday with promoting prison contraband in the first degree (a class D felony), two counts of tampering with physical evidence (a class E felony) and one count of official misconduct (a class A misdemeanor). The charges carry prison terms ranging from 15 months to seven years.
The documents allege that Palmer provided a flat-head screwdriver and needle-nose pliers on “at least four separate occasions” beginning as early as November 2014. According to the complaint, this was a result of Palmer receiving paintings from the Matt and Sweat.
eBay to Ban Sale of Confederate Flag Merchandise … Really, They Missed A Lot and They Seemed to Have Forgot to Remove the 2008 Hillary Clinton Campaign Buttons
This is what the slippery slope of censorship looks like … Its one thing for a State not to fly it at the Capitol, but now comes the purge of all things with the Confederate flag.
The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton and the Confederate Flag …
It would appear that eBay has jumped on the band wagon to ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise. According to eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff, “We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism.” REALLY? Because as of this morning, a simple search on eBay of “Confederate flag” brought up over 10 pages, 50 items on each page, of Confederate flag merchandise. So what is next, pretending like Civil War never took place and the scrubbing of Southern history?
I personally think slavery was one of our darkest hours in the United States and this existence of racism and bigotry is reprehensible; however, I find the exploitation of a heinous crime disgusting as well. This country has made great strides from the days of slavery, more so than many other countries where it continues today. I am not a fan of the Confederate flag, I am not from the South, I am more of a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag fan. But how long will it be before that symbol offends people? Hell, we have people in this country that are offended by the American flag, Old Glory.
How About this One?
Even Hillary Clinton chimed in on South Carolina’s removal of the Confederate flag from the Capitol building, but maybe Hillary would like to discuss her 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign buttons with the Confederate flag on them complete with Stars and Bars. By the way, that button is for sale on eBay. Oh, but that’s different, that was 8 years ago, what difference does it make. Right? In the video below Hillary Clinton said, “recognizing it as a symbol of our nation’s racist past, that has no place in our present or our future.” Did she feel that way when Bill Clinton signed a Law Honoring Confederacy in Arkansas Flag? Then comes Hillary’s anti-free speech comment, “It shouldn’t fly there, it shouldn’t fly anywhere.” Sorry folks, as long as people are allowed to burn the American flag as an example of free speech, flying a Confederate flag has to be allowed as well. You don’t get to allow one and not the other.
Hillary Clinton Says she appreciates the removal of Confederate Flag, but what about her campaign buttons?
eBay will ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise, the auction site announced Tuesday, in a decision that follows in the steps of major retailers like Walmart and Sears.
“We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism,” eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff said in an email to CNN. “This decision is consistent with our long-standing policy that prohibits items that promote or glorify hatred, violence and racial intolerance.”
Hoff added that the company continually monitors and evaluates its 800 million products on its site to ensure that they are “consistent with our core purpose.”
The company’s decision mirrors that of Walmart and Sears, which have also removed Confederate flag products from their stores.
The controversial flag has come under intense scrutiny following a racially motivated mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine African-Americans dead in a historic church. On Monday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley also called on the Confederate flag to be taken down from the state’s capitol grounds.
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley Calls for Removal of Confederate Flag From State Capitol in South Carolina
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley calls for the removal of Confederate flag from the State Capitol.
Following the shooting of 9 black church goers at the historic Emanuel American Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC, there has come the call to take the Confederate, Stars and Bars, flag from the South Carolina State Capitol in Columbia. Yesterday, Nikki Haley calls for removal of Confederate flag. Authorities stated that the shooting was a hate crime, and a white supremacist website that may be linked to the shooter, Dylann Roof, has images that apparently show him holding the Confederate battle flag.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of the Confederate flag from the grounds of the state Capitol Monday, less than a week after a 21-year-old white man gunned down nine people at a historic African American church.
Support for the flag to come down from leaders around the state and around the country has been steadily growing in the wake of the devastating attack.
“Today, we are here in a moment of unity in our state, without ill will, to say it is time to move the flag from the Capitol grounds,” Haley said during a news conference attended by Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, along with other state leaders.
I can understand the reason for the removal of the flag that divides individuals; however, if anyone thinks that this is the solution to stop racism, you are sorely mistaken. Love and Kindness ends racism, not the removal of a flag. If anything, the removal of the flag will probably fan the flames of the misguided and vile white supremacists. It is kind of playing into this hands and their mantra. However, the love, kindness and forgiveness shown by the families of the shooting victims in Charleston, SC will go farther to help get rid of racism and change hearts than any removal of a flag.
