Some of the 66 hostages who were imprisoned in Iran for up to 444 days between 1979 and 1980 said the deal forged between Tehran and the United States doesn't pass the smell test — and that it really hearkens back to the unstable foreign policy days of former President Jimmy Carter.
President Obama, described by some as carting most liberal-progressive vision for the nation since the days of Jimmy Carter, nonetheless claimed in a weekend address that he’s hardly an ideologue.
The dilemma of Barack Obama and his loyal Democrats is the gift few Republicans could have imagined only a fortnight ago. It's the gift that keeps on giving, and Obamacare is no bastard child.
Former President Jimmy Carter said he very nearly came to blows with the ex-president of South Africa over AIDS treatment.
One of the most puzzling things about President Obama's foreign policy is his inconsistency. He'll draw red lines in Syria and threaten military strikes, then call off the strikes and convene diplomatic conferences. If he's not killing terrorists with drones, he's bringing them to New York for civilian trial. He'll bypass the United Nations Security Council to take military action against Syria, but demand its approval before bombing Libya.
Last week, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) "for its extensive efforts to eliminate chemical weapons." The official ceremony will take place in Oslo on Dec. 10.
With the media giving 24/7 coverage to the federal shutdown and debt-ceiling standoff, other important news is slipping under the radar.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee will announce this year's winner of the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday. Given the recent American laureates — Jimmy Carter, Al Gore and Barack Obama — there's little likelihood that the American president who did more to promote and preserve peace will follow those usurpers. Still, it's not too late to do the noble thing, to posthumously recognize Ronald Reagan.
Former President Jimmy Carter weighed in on income disparity around the nation during an impromptu interview at a Habitat for Humanity building site, calling today’s middle-class yesterday’s poverty level.
Vilifying Republicans has become a cottage industry among Democrats who are under the impression that aggressive, insulting talk about one's political rivals is a sign of authority and purpose. Yeah, well.
The only man to hold both jobs says in a Discovery documentary that airs Wednesday that the White House chief of staff generally has more power than the vice president.
Most Americans are familiar with the economic and energy miracle that is the use of hydraulic fracturing to unlock an incredible wealth of natural gas and oil all across the country. The Barnett, Haynesville, Fayetteville, Marcellus, Utica and Niobrara, as well as the Bakken and Eagle Ford, deposits are producing energy, providing jobs and pumping billions into the nation's economy. They have one feature in common: Only state and private lands are involved despite the fact that federal lands constitute a third of the country.
The sole security checkpoint set up for the public to gain access to Wednesday's event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington was bottlenecked early, with frustrated crowds angrily chanting to be admitted and reports of people fainting from the heat.
The man who served as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under former President Jimmy Carter had a somewhat surprising assessment of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's future relevance: He's a martyr to the civil rights cause.
Standing on the spot where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. famously urged Americans not to judge one another by the color of their skin, President Obama said Wednesday that Americans must use the example of the civil rights marchers of 50 years ago to press for his brand of economic justice for the middle class.
He said the deal that was forged is about as effective as talks were in 1979, when he and his fellow hostages were subjected to mock executions and other atrocities by Tehran authorities.
Carter called Nepal's election well conducted and said Thursday he would meet with the leader of the trailing Maoist party, who was demanding that the vote counting be stopped because of alleged irregularities.
