Atlantic Publicity presented former President, Jimmy Carter on its American Airlines, Delta and US. Airways in-flight interview programs. President Carter was also interviewed today by Pierce Morgan on political points as well as about the Carter Center.
In view of recent world events, the interview is revealing a man who is actively involved in global humanitarian projects that far surpass the effectiveness of his Presidency. President Carter founded The Carter Center in 1982 with his wife Roselyn as a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization. In partnership with Emory University. The Atlanta-based center works to advance human rights and alleviate human suffering on a global scale, and has helped to improve the quality of life for people in more than 70 countries. Honoring his ongoing efforts to bring peace to a troubled world, President Carter was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002. In today's interview he said, "Peace and Human Rights" is what he would like to see on his tombstone. He also called some of our current politics stupid, which is a brutal truth and reality. I am hopeful that it is recognized by more and more people as we experience more and more complete nonsense and idiotism. Maybe America needed a wake up call to understand how good we had it before!
At the time the interview by Atlantic Publicity aired on in-flight programming, President Carter announced that he was on his way to Egypt to help that country in its transition to a democratically-elected government. His timing is critical in view of how the recent events have brought turmoil to the Middle East. There is much work to be done on both the humanitarian and diplomatic levels. Carter was active behind the scenes during the Arab Spring uprisings, working extensively with government transitions in Tunisia, Algeria and Libya. To date, the Carter Center has helped monitor democratic elections in over 90 countries.
Carter's foundation has a two-pronged approach to improving things in some of the world's poorest and least democratic countries. 80% of the Carter Center budget goes to efforts to improve the health in countries with health and disease problems, and the remaining resources are used to promote democracy and peace.
In their efforts to improve the health conditions in neglected third world countries have resulted in the near elimination of many little-known tropical diseases. Donating medicines and educating locals about preventative measures have resulted in the near-elimination of the Guinea worm, a parasite that had plagued 23,000 villages in 20 countries, and now has been reduced down to 125 cases annually. The Carter Center has also trained tens of thousands of local health workers in Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.
In addition to its health care and diplomatic work, The Carter Center is also widely-known for their Habitat for Humanity program which is now in its 29th year and has built hundreds of homes for low income families.
You can argue with his record as President, but Jimmy Carter discovered his real calling and done his most significant work after his career in politics. His tireless humanitarian efforts to improve the world have earned him unparalleled respect from the world at large, far and above anything he achieved in his Presidency. Jimmy Carter and his wife Roselyn, through their Carter Center have now become legendary as humanitarians, and continue to offer their healing efforts to a world that continues to hurt in so many ways.
More so now than ever before. Even on home land, Obama's reckless spending, egotism and continuous campaign mode propaganda belongs more to a theater than to the White House. While the country suffers collectively and has the worst recovery process in recorded history, IF it ever recovers, it is nice to see that we all pay for Obama's various fancy, vacationing, gloriously meaningless speeches, while nothing at all gets done in the White House, and millions of people go to bed hungry every night. It looks like the NEW America is doing fantastic in outdoing socialistic and tyrannical patterns exhibited in many parts of the World from which this free land used to be so different before. Now, we have stepped into the popular and fashionable new era where the President builds his empty, but theatrical speeches, which attracts people because it is open to interpretation due to non-content, on the country's desperation and suffering. " He understands our pain!" Wow! The less we have and the more is taken from us by the government, the more we need the government, and during all this time Washington is becoming the richest spot in the World! And, all this comes as a "surprise" because the people who voted for him had no idea what was yet to come. How could they? They interpreted his popular speeches any way they wanted and needed, and he spoke as the wind blew. Our current president hears us and understands our pain! I am so relieved to know that!
Former president, Carter's humanitarian efforts, free from politics is a story that Atlantic Publicity is very proud to be able to share, while the firm remains non-politically oriented, through its in-flight interview programs on Delta, American Airlines and US Air where Atlantic Publicity ("our publicity company" as it's put by Delta Airlines) along with CNN airport networks enjoys a large number of audiences that would otherwise be absolutely impossible to reach.
Spotlight News Magazine, Walking the Walk says: "It's time we walk the walk and not just talk the talk." If we call this phrase as one of our pains, maybe the president would "understand' it, but like always would do absolutely nothing about it!
Is the White House a Theater?
