Jimmy Carter just gave an explosive interview to CNN and the liberals are crying. Because he just destroyed pretty much their whole narrative.One could say, not incorrectly, that what Jimmy Carter just said could go down in history as day liberalism died.
It was that revealing of an interview.
On the North Korean crisis Carter said he is willing to go and try to help on the diplomatic front. Saying he volunteered his services to the Trump administration but they have turned him down.
He smacked the NFL players a bit saying,
“I think they ought to find a different way to object, to demonstrate. I would rather see all the players stand during the American anthem.”
As do all American’s. But it is still good to hear from a leading and respected liberal like Carter.
He commented on Obama’s all rhetoric and no substance style by simply saying, “He made some very wonderful statements, in my opinion, when he first got in office, and then he reneged on that.”
Kind of – Obama is all soaring rhetoric and no action so he never intended to actually do what he said – c’mon Jimmy you are smarter than that.
Then he broke Hillary’s heart by saying he voted for Bernie. Ouch.
But it is what he said about the media and Trump that has Anderson Cooper hanging his head in shame.
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about. I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.”
Wow. From a leading liberal no less?
But he wasn’t done destroying the media and their fake narrative.
He said the Russian connections to Trump’s campaign are not a big deal.
“At the Carter Center we deal with Putin and the Russians quite frequently concerning Syria… I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes, or any votes.”
And that is how liberal dreams die – not with a bang or a whimper, but with the brutal truth.

Did you happen to catch CNN’s latest smear? Anderson Cooper’s show recently featured a “two-part exclusive” that claims Donald Trump’s EPA administrator had conspired with the CEO of a mining company to “withdraw environmental restrictions” so the company could dig “the largest open pit mine in the world in an extremely sensitive watershed in wild Alaska.”
CNN showed beautiful pictures of colorful salmon swimming in Bristol Bay, and the reporter intoned dramatically, “EPA staffers were shocked to receive this email obtained exclusively by CNN, which says, ‘We have been directed by the administrator to withdraw restrictions’ … (P)rotection of that pristine area was being removed.”
I would have believed it — except I happened to report on that mine a couple years ago. I knew that the real scandal was not EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s decision to “withdraw the restrictions.” It was what President Obama’s EPA did to the company’s mining proposal in the first place.
Zealots at the EPA had conspired with rich environmental activists to kill the mine before its environmental-impact statement could even be submitted. This was unprecedented. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform later concluded: “EPA employees had inappropriate contact with outside groups and failed to conduct an impartial, fact-based review.”
Now, appropriately, Pruitt undid that censorship of science.
But CNN, implying devious secrecy, said that “according to multiple sources, he made that decision without a briefing from any of EPA’s scientists.”
But Pruitt didn’t require opinions from scientists. He didn’t approve the mine. He simply followed the law and allowed a company to submit a proposal.
And despite CNN’s repeated depictions of salmon in Bristol Bay, it turns out that the proposed mine would not even be on the bay. The proposed mine would be about 100 miles away.
Did CNN mention that? No. Never. We asked CNN why. CNN didn’t get back to us.
Of course, explaining that wouldn’t fit CNN’s theme: Evil Trump appointee ravages environment.
CNN’s reporter did at least speak with the mine’s CEO, Tom Collier, who tried to explain. “It’s not a science — it’s a process decision.”
But the reporter, Drew Griffin, wouldn’t budge. He called Collier “a guy who wants to mine gold in an area that many scientists believe will destroy one of the most pristine sockeye salmon sporting grounds in the whole world.”
The reporter implied evil collusion: “This looks like the head of a gold mine went to a new administrator and got him to reverse what an entire department had worked on for years.”
Here, at least, the report was accurate. Obama’s environmental department did try to kill that mine for years. It colluded with groups like the Natural Resources Defense Council, one of America’s wealthiest environment groups.
The NRDC is mostly made up of anti-progress lawyers who want no mines built anywhere.
If zealots and their sycophants in the media get their way, America will become a place with no mining, no pipelines, no oil drilling, no new … anything.
Just because Obama is out of the White House, it doesn’t mean that his nasty talons aren’t fully embedded in Washington D.C. as his team of “spies” keep infiltrating Trump’s administration to do his dirty bidding. As Obama operates his “shadow government” from the headquarters of his D.C. mansion just 3 …
The only similarities between Republican Ben Carson and Democrat Maxine Waters are that the two are prominent African-American political leaders. Aside from this, the two couldn’t be any more different. For the most part, Ben Carson tries his best to ignore Waters as best as he can, despite her relentless …
“I just met a lot of these folks and they’re better looking than Tom Cruise,” Trump said to a chorus of laughter. “And we know they can fight better and we know they can fly better — they better be able to. Great people.” After this Tom Cruise sadi : “I Swear …
