Dishonoring America and Peace By Steven Plaut FrontPageMagazine.com | October 11, 2002 In an era when Yassir Arafat and Shimon Peres hold Nobel Peace Prizes, I suppose none of us should find it too surprising that Jimmy Carter gets awarded one. Jimmy Carter, Mister Peanut from Plains Georgia, was without a doubt the worst American President in the post-World War II era, and possibly the very worst President ever. True, Clinton would be a major contender, but Clinton will be remembered for his sneaky sleaze, underhandedness, and sly dishonesty, whereas Carter will be remembered for his disgracing America, for his appeasement and defeatism, for his anti-Americanism, for his cowardice and pandering to terrorists, and most of all for his overwhelming stupidity. Carter was without a doubt awarded the Prize as a slap at the Bush Administration. The Scandinavian leftists who award the Prize do not like Americans who believe in using armed force against Islamist fascism or in defending America, and their very best role model for coddling Islamist terror and fascism and for American self-abasement is Jimmy Carter. Goobers Carter took America to its all-time security low. He groveled before the Iranians who held American hostages. He disarmed America. He brought the American economy to a ruin. He produced the highest inflation rate since the Civil War, a fact that no doubt endeared him to the Scandinavian socialists of the Nobel Committee, and a high unemployment rate. And he led the campaign to appease the Soviet Union, insisting communism was here to stay, all this eight years before it utterly collapsed. But more than anything else, Carter will be remembered for his bashing Israel. He is the one whose affirmative action appointee to the UN, Andrew Young, launched the jihad for Palestinian statehood in the American foreign-policy establishment. He sucked up to Jesse Jackson. He led the campaign to dismember Israel and reward PLO terror. He spent his years since getting kicked out of the White House in one of America's greatest election landslides lobbying the world on behalf of the PLO, campaigning for sanctions against Israel, and of course for Israel's Oslo national suicide. So I suppose he has everything it takes today to be a Nobel Prize winner. Carter was the symbol of appeasement, stupidity, detachment for reality, weakness, and timidity. So in all of this he will share his prize well with Rabin and Peres. Carter's stupidity is still a matter of bitter humor. We recall his infantile attempt to be an Alpha male and talk about his lusting after women, a matter which led to that famous cartoon of him gazing at the Statue of Liberty and imagining her naked. This was the peanut-brain from Plains, the dumber brother of Billy Carter. So who really does deserve a Nobel Peace Prize? Answer: The greatest living American President. The man who undid Carter's appeasements and coddling of Islamist terror. The man who put fear into the hearts of America-haters. The man who believed in using force to block communism, who fearlessly labeled communism the Empire of Evil. The President under whose administration the growth in the US economy was larger than the size of the entire economy of Germany. The man who restored American self-respect. The man responsible for the end of the Cold War. The President hated by Scandinavian appeasers and Eurocowards: Ronald Reagan.

Living through the carter Prez years truly left me embarrassed for my country on many occasions. This 'man' was a disgrace to the office. The carter years are an example of what happens when a spineless pacifist with a socialist agenda is in charge of the nation.

Yup, Alfred Nobel invented Tri-Nitro Toluene, aka TNT aka dynamite. And the reason there is no Nobel Prize for mathematics is because Alfred Nobel caught his wife having an affair with a mathematician. Just a few of the useless facts clogging my brain.

Oh, Puh-leeze! Ronnie Raygun was an awful president. The Soviet Union was collapsing under it's own weight, we spent ourselves nearly into oblivion, and had to bail out the savings and loans due to Ronzo's policies, and his people subverted democracy in the Iran-contra fiasco. Reagan was the epitome of the empty suit. He was a kindly appearing fatherly sort of figurehead who never should have been elected. [}:D]

One more time... Jimmy Carter's achievments as President: DOMESTIC - * Stagflation - the seemingly impossible combination of negative economic growth and rapid inflation. * 20% "misery index" (inflation + unemployment) * 13.5% inflation * 7.2% unemployment * 18% mortgage interest rates * 70% top marginal income tax rate * 14+% poverty rate * Formed the Dept. of Education = entrenching the Teachers Union in the Federal Gov't. * The 1979 "oil crisis" and more gas lines. * He told America to wear sweaters, turn down the heater to 68 and just do more with less from now on. * He ran a whopping 23% approval rating during 1980 campaign. * He lost in a 489 to 49 Electoral landslide for Reagan and Republican control of the Senate in 1980. (Thank God!!) FOREIGN AFFAIRS - * He gave us 444 days of non-stop world-wide humiliation for our impotent and ineffectual President during the Iran-Hostage saga. * He approved a poorly planned and botched "rescue" that only added to America's humilation around the world. * He watched detente crumble with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. * He pulled out of the 1980 Olympics - for spite. * He gave away the Panama Canal. * He failed to exlain a mysterious $250,000 payment from Libya to his brother Billy. * He allowed three countries to fall to communism under his watch: Benin, Nicaragua, and Zimbabwe. * Oh yeah... he made Sadat and Begin shake hands. Jimmy Carter also favored: * Equal Rights Amendment * National Health Insurance * SALT II missle treaty * Unilateral disarmament Jimmy Carter is nothing but a spineless, impotent, embarassingly-ineffectual, gutless, socialist, moronic fool who should never have held any Gov't position higher than a paper-clip sorter for Barney Fife.

This whole carter incident reminds me of one of the episodes of the Simpsons. Remember the episode where they couldn't afford to get a statue of a good president so they got jimmy carter instead? One guy in the crowd yelled "jimmy carter was one of histories greatest monsters!" and a riot ensued. They were using the statue of ole jimmy as a battering ram to break down doors and break in windows. I laughed my ass off at work today when I remembered this.

Democracy is mob-rule and the mob of Dumbocrats in Congress at the time were biased in favor of their fellow Marxist Comrades taking over Central America dominoe-style starting in Nicaragua. Reagan restored the Monroe Doctrine and did everything to stop Marxism/Communism from dominating all of Central America.
Reagan was the epitome of the empty suit.

Yeah, that's why he stared down Gorbachev in Reykjavik and made him blink. He was the MASTER political negotiator FOR AMERICA. No one could touch him. No one could derail him. Gorby met his match in Reagan at Reykjavik and Reagan bitchslapped him right out of power. He beat Gorby AND all the Marxists in Congress simultaneously and looked as smooth as silk doing it the whole time. Reagan beat Gorby into the submission because he never wavered from his core principles - Always negotiate from a position of strength - something other Presidents (Clinton, Carter) could not do.
who never should have been elected.

Well, I agree with you that typically, the dems spend waaaay too much, although the repubs have not typically been much better about it. At any rate, during the Reagan administration, congress actually refused to authorize all the spending that Reagan wanted, so in this case the shoe was on the other foot. When I get back in next week, I will try to respond to the rest of your comments, but right now the weekend calls.

Reagan get's sick and this FOOL gets a prize.[/quote] Wheres the giant rabbit carter claimed that attacked him on the ski trip? And I got something else to mention. Black Hawk Down. Page #115. Second paragraph says: "Aideed was feeling the heat. A Habr Gidr leader cooprating with U.S. Forces told them, "He, [Aideed] is very tense. The situation is very tense." In late August the Somali Warlord sent a letter to former President Jimmy Carter pleading with him to intervene with Presidnent Clinton. The general wanted an independant commision "compossd of internationally known statesmen, scholars and jurists from different countries," to investigate the allegations that he was responsible for the June 5th incident- Aideed claimed it was a spontaneous uprising of Mogadishu citizens who feared the UN was attacking Radio Mogadishu. He also called for a negotiated solution to his standoff with the UN. Carter had taken this message to the White House, and the suggestion was recieved warmly by Clinton, who directed that efforts to resolve matters peacefully be renewed. ^^^I for one prefer to use force as a last resort. But when push comes to shove, I'll forget the idea of peace until I'm convinced an enemy or enemies has been beaten into being sincere.

[url]http://www.bartleby.com/65/ir/Iranhost.html [/url] The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. Copyright © 2002 Columbia University Press "…President Carter applied economic pressure by halting oil imports from Iran and freezing Iranian assets in the United States. At the same time, he began several diplomatic initiatives to free the hostages, all of which proved fruitless. On Apr. 24, 1980, the United States attempted a rescue mission that failed. After three of eight helicopters were damaged in a sandstorm, the operation was aborted; eight persons were killed during the evacuation. Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, who had opposed the action, resigned after the mission’s failure. In 1980, the death of the shah in Egypt and the invasion of Iran by Iraq (see Iran-Iraq War) made the Iranians more receptive to resolving the hostage crisis. In the United States, failure to resolve the crisis contributed to Ronald Reagan’s defeat of Carter in the presidential election. After the election, with the assistance of Algerian intermediaries, successful negotiations began. On Jan. 20, 1981, the day of President Reagan’s inauguration, the United States released almost $8 billion in Iranian assets and the hostages were freed after 444 days in Iranian detention; the agreement gave Iran immunity from lawsuits arising from the incident…" Or are you looking towards the on scene, in the desert, mission commander, Colonel James H. Kyle, USAF? Want to go higher in the chain of command?

Some of you Yankee liberals who still think Jimmy Carter was a great president and need to sit down and listen up a minute. Ronald Reagan is one of the top four or five presidents in the history of our country. He was FAR from an empty suit. You have been listening to way too much DU propaganda lately. Read his recently published hand written papers and you will understand what a great intellectually sound person he really was and how his basic good ethics, instincts and morals provided him with a solid foundation to his character that permitted him to make the correct decisions in his career as president that eventually brought down the Soviet Union and eneded the Cold War. Yes, I would admit that cracks were beginning to show in the Russian Bear's system, but they were far from dead. A series of poor decisions by previous administrations and many congresses had ensured that the status would remain quo between us and the Soviets. We coddled them too damn much and Reagan knew that. He also knew what it would take to break them. Others had known about this...but none had ever had the intestinal fortitude to do it...and damn the consequences! Reagan did. Reagan was the FIRST president to truly confront the Soviets. He made bold statements that scared the hell out of the Soviets and their willing accomplices, the American Liberals and the European Socialists. Then just to piss them all off...he DID exactly what he said he would. He confronted Communism with troops everywhere he could. He built up the military to the point that the Sovs were totally unable to follow. They just collapsed trying to build ships, planes, guns, while at the same time trying to mute Ivan's wife from bitching because she couldn't get nylons, washing machines and fresh veggies for her borscht. Reagan surrounded himself with stars. Because of that, many among us believe that he wasn't in control...as some today believe Bush isn't in control Bullshit! Reagan was and Bush is. They just aren't micromanagers as Clinton was. They know they had/have stars working for them, they give them a basic philosophy, vision and guidance and clear goals, then get the hell out of the way and let the subordinates do their jobs! Further, Bush and Reagan were loyal. That is important when working in the puzzle palace that is Washington DC. When you are surrounded by crooks, liars, scamps and sycopants like Clinton was, you always have to be on the lookout to see that the court jester doesn't steal your crown while you aren't looking! I am a historian by education. I was a naval officer during the entire Reagan presidency (Actually for a lot longer than that.). I was NEVER prouder to be serving than when Reagan was my president. He kicked ASS! He was responsible for repairing the military that Carter damn near destroyed single-handedly. Like it or not...Reagan won the cold war for us. That move he made at Reykavik concerning Star Wars and theater ballistic missiles...telling Gorby to shove it, that we weren't going to stop the anti-missile program...in the face of intense oppostion from the Liberals back home and the European Socialists, was an incredible prescient decision and in retrospect a stroke of true political genius. NOBODY recognized at the time just how important that was...except for Reagan. I remember the American press HOWLING about FAILURE to get a nuclear weapons reduction treaty signed by Gorby...and the stupid reason was this goofy Star Wars system! The press was apoplectic! I loved it. "Mr. Gorbachev...TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!" Do you doubters remember that? Did ANY president ever say anything like that before? No. That took a set too. These aren't the words of a man trained in the sensitivities of Foggy Bottom...these are the words of a man truly dedicated to the eradication of one of mankind's worst plagues on humanity; communism. Only the socialist elites back home and in Europe were stunned...most of us simply said, "Right on!" History will prove me right. In the fullness of time, Reagan will be recognized as a great visionary and one of the greatest presidents, right up their with Lincoln, Washington, and Theodore Roosevelt. Now...if Dubya keeps this up...he too just might make the big time. He sure looks a lot like Reagan. Empty suit? I don't think so.

Lets see now.... If I had just known back in 1980 that Good Ole Jimmy was going to get the Nobel Peace Prize one day I would have been inclined to vote for him instead of Ronnie. NOT!! Him getting the socialist prize confirms my opinion that he is the second worst president of modern times (behind slick Willy).
