Censuring Jimmy Carter

I called both of my US Senators this morning (Dole & Burr) to request that they introduce a Resolution of Censure against former President Jimmy Carter.   Including his term in office, but mostly after, Carter has a history of actions intended to undermine and destroy the United States of America.  His meeting this week with Hamas should be the last straw for those who believe in this nation.

It is time that our responsible leaders in Congress (if there are any left), put a line in the sand during this time of war declared against our nation by Islamic terrorists. 

President Jimmy Carter should be censured by the United States Senate and this censure should hang around his head for the rest of his life.

If you agree, please call your Senators today to urge they introduce and pass a Resolution of Censure against James Earl Carter.

  3. To whom it may concern; Jimmy Carter is a ‘shame’ to the USA. He needs his passport nullified. Congress is so far away from reality it scares me. Carter is an anti-Semite and he will only harm eht US and it’s allies by trying to ‘talk’ to Hamas? Blow the hell out of Hamas, end this crap now.

  6. Don’t forget the FALN, for whose members Hillary lobbied so hard to get a pardon, which they did get, even after they refused to denounce their terrorist past to get the pardons.

    Also, don’t forget her big smooch of Ms. Arafat.

    But sadly, Obama is even worse in his ties to terrorists.

    What a scary election.

  11. Bruce,

    This is the kind of post that keeps me coming back to GayPatriot, and makes me want to defend you and GPW. God bless you. It tells the truth. But it’s something I would never think of saying, because, living in a “permanently blue” state and having 2 radical-left senators, I have allowed myself to feel hopeless about changing anything. I probably still won’t do this particular action (calling my senators), but, seeing someone point out the truth about Carter and Hamas lifts me up, or gives me some hope. You know, hope for change. A change I can believe. (Aargh. I’ll stop.)

    And congrats on the links from MM and Jules Crittenden!!

  16. lol @ VP,
    Exactly what I was thinking about my senators Murray and Cantwell. Oy!

    What I did was contacted the White House and urged them to instruct the State Dept to revoke Carter’s passport.

    Not only does Carter not have the right to meet with Syria and Hamas, he is violating the Constitution and the Logan Act by doing so. And if you ask me, the President not only has the right, but the responsibility to stop it.

    Comment by American Elephant — April 14, 2008 @ 5:55 pm - April 14, 2008

  17. Congress isn’t going to censure James Earl Carter. And it’s doubtful the administration wants to prosecute him for violating laws banning his conducting foreign policy. If George W. Bush has any balls he’ll have the State Department take Carter’s passport away from him.

    An interesting sidebar:

    I’ve been reading historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr.’s “Journals 1952 to 2000” and there are dozens of entries about the contempt the Democratic establishment had for Carter. George McGovern, the Democratic candidate for President in 1972, is quoted as saying he, his wife and all their children voted for Jerry Ford in 1976. In 1980, several leading liberals confided to Schlesinger they would vote for Reagan and Jackie Kennedy Onasis, among others, said they voted for John Anderson.

    Comment by Trace Phelps — April 14, 2008 @ 6:43 pm - April 14, 2008

  18. I’m not sure the US Senate even has the authoruty to censure a non-member…or even a former US President. And even if the State Dept. confiscated his US Dilpomatic passport, I doubt there’s any legal way of rescinding his private US passport; thought hopefully the US taxpayer isn’t paying for his security detail on THIS jaunte.

    However, Carter might no-longer be getting Secret Service protection a this point, it’s no-longer an automatic life-time perogative. I know they have discontinued the coverage for the surviving First Ladies, Ford and Reagan…and I think I read that Bush-41 and Barbara Bush no-longer have their security-details.

    Comment by Ted B. (Charging Rhino) — April 14, 2008 @ 8:48 pm - April 14, 2008

  19. Carter is still under Secret Service protection.

    I know this because the State of Israel has refused to cooperate with Carter’s Secret Sevice team .. Israel has refused to offer Carter any security at all. They told him he’s on his own.

    Comment by Vince P — April 14, 2008 @ 8:54 pm - April 14, 2008

  20. Ted,
    “Censure” is really nothing more than a vote of condemnation or disapproval. It doesn’t carry any weight. There are no consequences of being censured other than shame or bragging rights depending on how you look at it.

    And yes, it would be unheard of to censure a private citizen, at least it was unheard of until the Democrats tried to censure Rush Limbaugh for remarks they were misrepresenting in the first place. Now, is there a big difference between Rush exercising his freedom of speech and being censured for something he never said in the first place, and censuring Jimmy Carter for violating Article II, Sec 2 of the Constitution, as well as the Logan Act? Hell yeah there is! But I’m still not sure its a good idea to get the senate in the business of censuring private citizens.

    As for his passport, I’m pretty sure the State Department can rescind your passport if they know you are intending to travel to a country to which travel is prohibited. Like your drivers license belongs to your state, a US passport doesn’t belong to you, it belongs to the US govt.

    But I’m glad to hear Israel isn’t providing him any security. Just warms my little heart knowing that he is getting the same treatment Rudy Giuliani gave the terrorist Arafat.

    What i would love is if the Justice Department prosecuted him when he gets back, the way they should have prosecuted Pelosi.

    Comment by American Elephant — April 15, 2008 @ 5:12 am - April 15, 2008

  21. Wouldn’t a resolution of censure be a form of a Bill of Attainder?

    [After I typed that, i went to look it up]

    The answer is no.

    I think censure is dumb though. Big deal, Congress will send a “message”.. more than a “message” needs to be done. There needs to be consequence to this. he is aiding our enemies and he needs to be arrested.

    Is this nation ever going to take its defense seriously or not?

    Comment by Vince P — April 15, 2008 @ 7:44 am - April 15, 2008

  22. I think the best thing to do is promote this event. Let people see how misguided Mr. Carter really is when he is not building homes for the poor. Everytime he is caught on camera durning the Democratic Convention you know the commentator will mention his most recent trip. Maybe it will finally sink in that the current crop of Dems will sell, sorry negotiate, this country down the river.

  23. I called both my senator’s offices. Bill Nelson’s staffer sounded shocked that anyone would think to ask Sen. Nelson to censure a former President. I found it rather funny.

    Comment by Fake But Accurate — April 15, 2008 @ 9:14 am - April 15, 2008

  24. Sorry, but Carter’s trip needs to be front page news everywhere. Then it needs to be attached to the Democratic Party presidential candidate, via the convention in Denver. So if your Senators are of the left-leaning variety, call them and instead of asking for censure, tell them that you believe Carter’s travels and travails need to be highlighted by giving the old coot another box seat at the convention. After all, how hard would it be to connect this buffoon’s trip to talk with Hamas and Obama’s promise to meet with every terrorist in the world without preconditions? He’s practically living Obama’s dream.

  28. John F and Diggs have the right idea.

    Carter’s antics are a net plus to opponents of appeasement. Consider how his Nobel prize further discredited that sorry institution. And does anyone think his highly visible presence at the last convention benefited his party’s ticket?

  36. Certainly the Bushies are far from clean in this regard but, as usual, they are better than the alternative on offer. Carter is a miserable figure; a true disgrace. More than any other single figure except Khomeni, he is responsible for the existence of the Islamic Republic and all the vicious barbarity for which it stands. I wonder if he will inquire after the strange spectacle, nearly unremarked on in the West, of blindfolded and semi-nude boys being thrown from the high windows of Fatah’s headquarters by Hamasians in celebration of their election? He will, of course. What was I thinking?

  37. I think all our Presidents have handled this Islamic thing very poorly, though I’m more lenient with Reagan, Bush I and first term Clinton.

    No one understood the religious revival of Islam at the time,plus the Cold War was obscuring the ideological dispersion of Jihad.

    By the time of Clinton Term Two though we should have gotten smarter and after 9/12 we have no excuse.

    Lefties (excluding our remaining patriotic / conservative-ish Democrats) dream of seeing their parents’ world overturned. Even if it’s going to hurt them. It gives them a thrill. It’s like a rape fantasy. Many women, I’m told (and some men) have “prison rape” fantasies. The reality of prison rape is, of course, very different from the fantasy, and not something to be wished for. Same with “subversion” (or even “revolution”) fantasies and your average lefty.

    According to an Egyptian Government 2006 poll of 1000 Egyptians (taken at the time of the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict) 92% of Egyptians view Israel as an enemy nation. However, the treaty was supported by the vast majority of Egyptians from the day it was signed. In Israel, there is lasting support of the Camp David Peace Accords, which have become a national consensus, supported by 85% of Israelis according to a 2001 poll taken by the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies (Israel based). Nevertheless, a minority of Israelis believe the price Israel paid for the peace agreement was too high for its present gains, i.e. having relinquished the entire Sinai Peninsula, with its oil, tourism and land resources (Israel has no oil wells), and the trauma of evacuating thousands of its Israeli inhabitants (many resisted, as in the town of Yamit and had to be forcefully evacuated).

    There’s no harm in talking.

  49. Hat tip Powerline: Ed Koch censures Jimmuh Carter.

    As blockquoted on Powerline:

    When [Carter] ran for reelection, he asked me to campaign for him in 1980 — I was by then Mayor of New York City — and I said that I would vote for him, but not campaign for him because he was then engaging in hostile acts towards Israel. I was popular with the Jewish community and when I would not campaign for him unless he changed his position, he called me to his hotel in New York when attending a fundraiser and said, “You have done me more damage than any man in America.” I felt proud then, and even more today, since we now know what a miserable president he was then and the miserable human being he is now as he prepares to meet with Hamas.

    Comment by ILoveCapitalism — April 16, 2008 @ 1:30 pm - April 16, 2008

  50. To Ted B., # 18 — As I understood the most recent change in the law regarding Secret Service protection for ex-Presidents, President Bush is the first person to be affected. I don’t know the number of years, but the law (passed when the GOP controlled Congress) ends protection after so many years for ex-Presidents and presidential widows effective when Bush leaves office. If I’m not mistaken, it also reduces the government’s share of an ex-President’s staff and office operation.

    I’m pretty sure the law was not retroactive. Carter, Bush 41 and Clinton are still eligible for protection as are former first ladies Reagan, Carter, Ford, Bush and Clinton.

    At one time, and it may still hold true, ex-Presidents could use Air Force planes for official travel.

    As far as I know, of recent ex-Presidents, Richard Nixon was the only one to reject Secret Service protection and to pay for his own security.

    It wasn’t too many years ago that Secret Service protection ended when a President left office. According to one Truman book I read, President Truman drove himself and Bess back to Missouri after Eisenhower took office.
