    Butt Plug Diplomacy... No longer just a unique sex toy, BUTT PLUGS are an essential part of today's statesmanship.
    Thanks to Wikileaks we now know that Carter, Sadat of Egypt and Began of Israel all used Butt Plugs while at Camp David. In fact Butt Plugs are offered quite normally to State Dept. personnel. A Big Basket of Butt Plugs exists in the Board Room of Every Embassy & Consulate... but if a butt plug is found underneath your pillow, that's an indication from your supervisor that your use of a butt plug is mandatory.
    Hitler knew the value of butt plugs but failed to use them: it cost him the war:

    Trump is standing up for Christians in this country, who are slowly being marginalized by various groups in this country like google and facebook. I used to be a Democrat years ago, but my eyes were opened. The Democrats support abortion, which is murder plain and simple. It's been killing off my people for years. Why shouldn't we build a wall, people can't just come here illegally, who do they think they are, that's just lawlessness. I like Carter a lot, he has been helping people for years. I know a lot of people are still upset that Hillary lost, well get over it and quit crying. She got whipped by Trump and didn't see it coming. Hillary represented the forces of evil at work in this country, she is heavily involved in the occult. Would you actually want her to be in charge? Her witchcraft has no power over the God of the Bible. People need to get their lives right with God and quit the drugs, drinking, and living together without marriage, you will have to pay for it one day. Sodomites will also have to answer to God unless they repent. You can't be a homosexual and go to heaven. This "transgender" stuff is also of the devil, a lot of those people are just demon-possessed. Wake up, God's Word doesn't change and hell is real. Jesus is going to come back to this earth just like He ascended to heaven 2000 years ago. Get on your knees and repent before God, this Colbert dude will have to answer to God one day, unless he repents of his evil. I pray for Trump too, he is fighting the forces of evil, do you know what I'm saying?

    Can't stand this show anymore. Guy can't get a sentence out with mindless clapping and cheering. This dumb show is all about making dumb short quips about the current president at every possible turn. Like you could say "Trump bad" and hear cheering for 20 seconds. Such a low effort at making jokes. Not a Trump supporter but man every night this show outdoes itself with some serious eye-rollers.

  • Enrique Hernandez

    I think Carter suffers from a delusion that many left-thinking people succumb to that secular governments should emulate the community that believers created in Acts 4:32-37 where they all sold everything they had and laid it at the apostles' feet so that everything could be redistributed according to need. And that is the way it should be within the Church. But leftists want to apply that to secular government, which to me is absurd because now you're not laying all your money at the feet of the apostles but of a bunch of politicians. It just doesn't translate. Castro wan't Peter or Paul or even a believer but an atheist who lived like a king while everybody else was a pauper. Having said that, I think Jimmy Carter's work building houses for people is commendable. I also like how he's not rooting for our current president to fail but is praying for him instead.

  • JJ M

    Carter gets a bad rap from history but he did do two things which will go down in history. 1) Brokered the peace between Israel and Egypt at Camp David. That peace holds to this day. 2) Agreed to give control of the Panama Canal to the Panamanian people. This has rocketed Panama's economy into one of the richest in the western hemisphere. He did the right thing when it was politically unpopular to do so.

    Jimmy Carter wasn't a "nice guy". He never, EVER, said hello to the Secret Service who worked for him. He mandated that White House staff had to ask his personal permission to use the white house tennis courts. And in 1980, he went out and made up lies about Reagan that he was a racist and would start war.

    • C R
      C R 16 days ago

      My source is: "In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect" Ronald Kessler. As for why? I've thought about that. Perhaps it has something to do with him being from the south, with a very clear line between the upper class and the help? Or maybe Carter is only nice when he's trying to charm you?

    • Mike Hike
      Mike Hike 16 days ago +1

      Were you by his side one hundred percent of the time, to keep track of times he said hello or not? Is your point that what is on clear display on the video, and everything else we know about the man, is only a smokescreen? That Jimmy Carter is not at all a nice man, but a con artist?
      As for the tennis matter, in this 1978 interview ( he was asked by Bill Moyers whether he was still giving permission on who could use the courts, Carter's reply was, _"No-and never have, by the way. MR. MOYERS. Was that a false report? THE PRESIDENT. Yes, it was."_ We may see from the Colbert interview above that he has come to be near-universally regarded as a truth-teller, except for his occasional "white lies."
      Yet what if Carter *was* being dishonest on this point? This other article claims that he was indeed coordinating the tennis schedule (, and one gets the feel he was a micro-manager (from the rest of the article, I believe that to be true, which was admittedly one of his failings), although he tried to learn from his mistakes. (The author implies Carter changed his mind about controlling the tennis business: _"After six months had passed, Carter learned that this was ridiculous...")_
      So he was not perfect. Who is? Seems like a very petty point for you to make, to use this example as a way to demonstrate that he was not a "nice guy." (The article's author does not give the impression that Carter ever turned down the requests to use the courts. In conclusion, he made the White House staff jump through a hoop. Big deal.)
      As for _"And in 1980, he went out and made up lies about Reagan that he was a racist and would start war,"_ the racism reference was in regard to Carter's accusation of Reagan's support of "states' rights" (in *THE* _"place where... young civil rights workers were brutally killed')_ which to Carter's moderate Southern perspective was a code phrase for racism. Was it unfair?
      Not according to this journalist: .
      Another article on the subject ("Carter Says Reagan Injects Racism," _WaPo,_ Martin Schram, Sept. 17, 1980) also reveals Reagan tried to tie Carter in with the KKK, which Reagan later regretted. Therefore, both men sometimes played politics, which only makes sense - since they were, after all, politicians - and politics can be a dirty game. Although it sounds like Carter *believed* in what he was saying, which is a far cry from _"lies,"_ as you put it.
      If Carter claimed Reagan would start war, he was on the money. Ever hear of Grenada? (A pittance of a war, but a war nevertheless; it took place just days after the explosion in Lebanon killed over 240 U.S. troops, probably to take the heat off. Thanks to Reagan's frivolousness, nearly a hundred died, twenty being American soldiers, and another regime was changed.) Reagan also almost got the USA into a war with the Soviet Union after his "We begin bombing in five minutes" joke, which resulted in the Soviet Far East Army being placed on alert.
      It seems you were of he mind to paint Jimmy Carter as a villain, and you bent the facts so that your predetermined conclusion would come across as credible. This was not honest, on your part.
