Jimmy Carter is a former US President who posed problems for the US Deep state.


Jimmy Carter put solar panels on the roof of the White House, which were removed by Ronald Reagan. Carter's re-election was by hindered by the October surprise conspiracy, a secret deal with Iranian hostage takers to give them weapons in order to prevent the release of the US embassy hostages before the 1980 US presidential election. In the event, the hostages were released hours after Reagan was inaugurated, but the official narrative still denies that this deal happened.

President Carter rarely used the word "terrorism", and when he did, it was mostly about the hostage taking of the US embassy staff in Tehran.[1]

CIA Purge

Jimmy Carter, assisted by his pick for Director of Central Intelligence, Stansfield Turner, sacked a lot of the top leadership of the CIA.[2][3]

Assassination attempt

Raymond Lee Harvey was arrested by the Secret Service after being found armed, ten minutes before Carter was to give a speech at the Civic Center Mall in Los Angeles on May 5, 1979.[4] Harvey had a history of mental illness, but police had to investigate his claim that he was part of a four-man operation to assassinate the president. He claimed to have been with one of the plotters that night, whom he knew as "Julio". This man was later identified as a 21-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, who gave the name Osvaldo Espinoza Ortiz. Charges against the pair were ultimately dismissed for a lack of evidence. Both are remembered for parts of their names together form Lee Harvey Oswald.

John Hinckley Jr. came close to shooting Carter during his re-election campaign, but he lost his nerve. He would later attempt to kill President Ronald Reagan in March 1981.

Later Activities

On July 17th, 2013, Carter opined bluntly: "America does not at the moment have a functioning democracy."[2]

During a visit to the United Kingdom, Carter visited the House of Lords and made the following statement regarding the US 2016 Presidential Election;

“I think I would choose Trump, which may surprise some of you, but the reason is Trump has proven already that he's completely malleable. I don't think he has any fixed opinions that he would really go to the White House and fight for. Ted Cruz is not malleable. He has far right-wing policies, in my opinion, that would be pursued aggressively if and when he would become president.”

It revisits the abortive rescue of US diplomatic staff held hostage by Iran under President Carter, paving the way for the UK to supply arms to both sides in the soon-to-follow Iran-Iraq war in covert defiance of UN sanctions. The affair remains one of ultra-sensitivity to the UK Establishment which has been engaged in a monumental cover-up ever since.
