    Carter should start by praying to have sincere faith himself. "He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination." (Proverbs 28:9)

      It is sad that Mr. Carter does not have faith in the Gospel - on the contrary. "Jimmy Carter: 'I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage' "

    This interview brought tears to my eyes. What an incredible man! I guess we will never know what it is to have a president who is "too nice" ever again. Certainly, thanks to Trump, we now know what it is to have a president who is a disgusting, inane, insincere, insipid and a self-promoting racist and misogynist.

    Every time a respectable person comes on, Stephen Colbert's true colours come through and he shows himthelf to be a prothessional atholl. Letterman would have done waay better. Stephen is a second rate host, not many people will say it straight but it's true, and it's not because Letterman was better. Stephen isn't even as good as Fallon. Get him off the network, he's a fool leading fools.

    Carter was and is a moral leader, is who he is, practices what he deeply believes. The 70’s were merciless to him, the politic and media hype forced him to sell his beloved family peanut farm, looked down their noses at him, made constant news about his wacky brother, he calmly got us through a nuclear disaster, he was a nuclear engineer in the Navy I believe, wanted to take us to solar, at the time we were waiting in line on alternate days to buy gas and there were fist fights breaking out all over the nation over a tank of gas. He was gentle, fair, wanted peace, wanted us to lead through noble actions. America would have none of it. As a teenager back then, fresh off of Watergate and war and raw racial divide, Carter gave many of us hope. We did not do the right thing. We jeered him out of office. We only want a better us after it is gone.

    Abraham Lincoln was asked once after one of his speeches during the civil war in which he referred to the confederates as lost Americans/friends in need of help. A woman commended him for this and appreciated that he didn’t look at them as enemies who needed to be destroyed. To which he replied “do I not destroy my enemy by making him my friend.”

  • Satanic Zionism & Israel's Terrorism

    There is no regime more psychopathic than Israeli regime. This government of demented lost souls will stop at nothing until they get their war with Iran, though being the cowards that they are, they will use American lives as their battering rams. Why is there no global outcry against this? And why haven't sanctions been imposed on this illegitimate apartheid state, which seems hell-bent on seeing half of our planet destroyed in a nuclear war? The time to pussy-foot around this issue is long over. Israhell is a grave danger to all of us, so much so that if it isn't reigned in soon, we are looking at the likelihood of a nuclear winter. ''The chief weapon for defeating Zionism is publicity. Everyone must be told the truth. Everyone must know, understand, and achieve a proper feeling for, the whole truth about Zionism and Zionists: its aims, history, strategy, tactics, current condition and current struggle. They must understand the danger, the mortal danger. They must understand that Zionism is the enemy of all people, is the enemy of each individual person, and is in fact your enemy too. It is even the enemy of the Jews and the Zionists, and that is no paradox. Everyone must go into battle against it, and conduct a merciless, unyielding fight to the finish, until complete victory over Zionism has been achieved, until mankind has been rid of the threat of Zionism's victory, of the danger of Zionism, of Zionism altogether!
    Specifically, everyone who comes upon the present work which he is now reading must make the maximum effort to reproduce it, publish it (preferably in a massive print run), to distribute it in his locality as well as across Russia, and also outside Russia. The author is not worried that he may be regarded as vainglorious. But it is perfectly clear to him that the Zionists will make the maximum effort to liquidate this work and, if that does not succeed, to cast aspersions on it. The more people learn the truth, the more difficult it will be for Zionists to attain their objectives. Every person on earth must know the contents of the present work and, in consequence, know considerably more about Zionism than he did previously. The same applies to the distribution of other anti-Zionist literature and information. It must be done both orally and in writing, by action and financial support, both personally and by organizing others. Spread the truth about Zionism and fight against it with all the means possible! Become united and organized! But do not stop being vigilant, and lose no time! And victory will be ours!
    Despite all the defeats and failures which it suffers from time to time, Zionism nevertheless makes progress, gradually gathering the whole world into its hands and completing its gigantic task of entirely taking over the world. What gives it such strength? What are the organizational and tactical principles enabling it always to feel victorious''
    The nature of Zionism

    He put solar panels on the White House roof in 1979. If we continued down this path, our beautiful planet would be in good shape and we wouldn't be engaged in 7 wars, (going on 8), to steal oil.
