Why do the Carters look so tiny alongside Joe Biden and his wife Jill in this picture?

You don’t need special gear to create this optical trickery. If you have an iPhone 11 or 12 you too can loom large over a former US presidentHi Carly. As our resident photography expert, I have a question. Something about this photo featuring Joe and Jill Biden and former president Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter seems … off?It sure does. Where to begin … The scale of Biden v Rosalynn is very unusual – he looks three times the size of her and even though the natural physical c...

Biden touts tax plan in Georgia: Wealthy, corporations must pay their fair share

By Zeke Miller and Aamer Madhani | Associated Press DULUTH, Ga. — President Joe Biden took his pitch to Georgia on Thursday night for $4 trillion in spending to rebuild the nation’s aged infrastructure and vastly expand the federal social safety net, choosing a new political battleground to make his case that Americans want a more activist government. With his visit to a state he won by fewer than 12,000 votes, Biden set out to build public support for his plan and try to persuade resistant Repu...

Trump tactics to overturn election could have staying power

ATLANTA — Even after he exits the White House, President Donald Trump’s efforts to challenge the legitimacy of the election and seeking to overturn the will of voters could have staying power. Trump’s tactics are already inspiring other candidates and have been embraced by a wide array of Republicans. Supporters include congressional candidates, state lawmakers, party chairs, conservative legal groups and appointees to previously little-known state vote-certification boards. The breadth of suppo...

Pete Buttigieg’s History-Making Campaign Fell Short, but He Leaves the Race a Star

Pete Buttigieg, the 38-year-old mayor who rose from obscurity to become the first gay candidate in history to win a presidential primary, suspended his campaign Sunday night, saying he saw no path to win the Democratic nomination. Buttigieg fell short in his quest for the nomination, but no Democrat this cycle did more to boost his political career. The former mayor of South Bend, Ind., entered the race with no name recognition, natural constituency or personal wealth. He leaves it as o...

Jimmy Carter Is Officially The Longest-Living President In US History

ATLANTA (AP) — Nearly four decades after voters unceremoniously rejected then-President Jimmy Carter’s bid for a second term, the 39th president has reached a milestone that electoral math cannot dispute: He is now the longest-living chief executive in American history. Friday is the 172nd day beyond Carter’s 94th birthday, exceeding by one day the lifespan of former President George H.W. Bush, who died Nov. 30 at the age of 94 years, 171 days. Both men were born in 1924: Bush on June 12, Car...

Trump Mindful Of Optics As He Decides Which Trips To Take During Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vacation jaunts and hobnobbing with global elites at a Swiss ski resort are out for President Donald Trump. Visits with troops and farmers are OK. Like some of his recent predecessors, Trump is carefully picking and choosing where he’ll travel during the partial government shutdown. He visited with U.S. troops stationed at a military base in western Iraq the day after Christmas and flew to the U.S.-Mexico border in southern Texas last week to try to buttress his argument for...

Donald Trump Makes No Effort To Greet Jimmy Carter, The Oldest Living President, At Bush Funeral

At the funeral service for George H.W. Bush, current President Donald Trump made no effort to greet President Jimmy Carter, now at 94, the oldest living United States President. As Trump and his wife arrived to sit in the “President’s Club” pew at the Washington National Cathedral, Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn looked straight ahead. The reception for First Lady Melania was lukewarm, but the chilly lack of a greeting for Donald Trump was palpable, reports USA Today.

Carter, Abrams: Georgians From 2 Eras Chase Rural Votes

PLAINS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia’s past and its potential future converged in the tiny town of Plains, as former President Jimmy Carter campaigned Tuesday alongside Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams. Despite their starkly different biographies — he the 93-year-old peanut farmer who entered Deep South politics amid Jim Crow segregation, she the 44-year-old Atlanta attorney who’d be the first black female governor in U.S. history — the pair of Democratic politicians cited a shared intere...

Jimmy Carter: Dems Must ‘Appeal To Independents’ By Not Going Too Far To The Left

ATLANTA (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter sees little hope for the U.S. to change its human rights and environmental policies as long as Donald Trump is in the White House, but he has a warning for his fellow Democrats looking to oust the current administration: Don’t go too far to the left. “Independents need to know they can invest their vote in the Democratic Party,” Carter said Tuesday during his annual report at his post-presidential center and library in Atlanta, where he offered caut...

The anti-Trump.

The Washington Post does a long piece on Jimmy Carter — how he and his wife Rosalynn live humbly in the poor little town where they were born —  that seems entirely about how he is not Donald Trump. There are lots of good details and photographs, and the humble style really is quite impressive, funny, and touching — I cried! — but the whole thing is marred by the intention to criticize Donald Trump:His simple lifestyle is increasingly rare in this era of President Trump, a billionaire with gold-...

Jimmy Carter Criticizes Trump's N. Korea Response: 'Treat Them With Respect'

ATLANTA (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter offered a damning indictment of U.S. foreign policy and domestic affairs Tuesday, saying money in politics makes the nation more like an “oligarchy than a democracy” and casting President Donald Trump as a disappointment on the world stage. Carter’s criticisms, offered at his annual presentation to backers of his post-presidency Carter Center in Atlanta, went beyond Trump, but he was particularly critical of the nation’s direction under the Republican...

Jimmy Carter built a new solar plant on his old peanut farm

Jimmy Carter is once again pioneering solar energy projects. The former president who almost 40 years ago installed solar panels at the White House just unveiled a solar power project on his Plains, Georgia farm, where he once cultivated soybeans and peanuts. The 3,852 solar panels on his land can generate enough renewable energy for more than half of the 683-person town where Carter was born. Carter leased 10 acres of land for a 1.3 megawatt solar array to Georgia-based SolAmerica Energy, wh...
