Carter, at 95 the oldest living U.S. President, was admitted to the hospital on Monday to be treated for swelling on the brain after falling, ABC News reported.
The Georgian was last hospitalized in October after fracturing his pelvis — his most recent of three falls this year.
Carter also received stitches over his left brow from a fall on Oct. 6.
The ex-president says he already feels as if he is living on borrowed time after being diagnosed with cancer in 2015.
“I assumed naturally that I was going to die very quickly,” said Carter, referring to his diagnosis. “I said a prayer about it; I didn’t ask God to let me live, I found that I was absolutely and completely at ease with death.”

Sekulow Accuses Schiff Of Taking Hamilton Quote Out Of Context
Jay Sekulow, President Trump’s personal attorney, attacked Democrats for repeating what he said was an out-of-context quote from Alexander Hamilton.
“Both Sen. [Chuck] Schumer and yesterday, as well, Congressman [Adam] Schiff, used this famous quote from Alexander Hamilton about impeachment,” Sekulow said. “It wasn’t about impeachment. It was a letter regarding policy disputes between Hamilton and Washington five years after the Constitution was adopted. So they’re not only taking the wrong law, they’re taking the wrong quotes from the founding fathers.”
One of the lawyers on President Trump’s impeachment trial defense team, Jay Sekulow, charged that Democratic members of Congress were taking a quote from Alexander Hamilton out of context as they tried to lay out the standard for removing a president from office.
Speaking to reporters after the second day of Democrats’ opening arguments, Sekulow said Thursday that the Hamilton quote, which comes from a letter he sent to George Washington as Treasury secretary in 1792, primarily discussing the national debt, was “completely out of place.” More

The American legal system has always considered a citizen Innocent until proven guilty… But now the Democrats want to completely throw out due process.
It’s definitely being misrepresented and misappropriated to conform to the agenda.

Adam Schiff wants to impeach Trump based on his opinion of the president. Several Democrats have now revealed that the reason they want impeachment is that they don’t want Trump to win the 2020 election. That is the true election tampering going on and they need to be held accountable, but I’m not holding my breath.
Dem. Adam Schiff’s 7 Biggest Lies During Impeachment Proceedings
Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff was full of lies during Senate impeachment proceedings, and Rep. Jim Jordan noted Schiff’s seven worst lies.
Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff was full of lies during his appalling segment of the Senate impeachment proceedings, and Rep. Jim Jordan pinpointed Schiff’s seven worst lies.
Jordan pointed out just how full of it Schiff is with his false testimony before the Senate.
Rep. Jordan tweeted a video of his comments to reporters following Impeachment Manager Schiff’s two hours of wild-eyed allegations against President Donald Trump.
Here are Schiff’s essential lies about the president:
1. “More than circumstantial evidence” of collusion
2. Nunes memo was false
3. FISA process was fine
4. The “Whistleblower” would testify
5. “We haven’t spoken… with the ‘Whistleblower'”
6. Parodied @POTUS’ call
7. “Mr. Z” referred to Zelensky
“But today we’re supposed to trust him?” Jordan added.
In his video, Jordan detailed how each of Schiff’s claims are “exactly wrong” – and Jordan then asked reporters how “We’re supposed to believe Adam Schiff today – everything he’s saying?”
-"More than circumstantial evidence" of collusion
-Nunes memo was false
-FISA process was fine
-The "Whistleblower" would testify
-"We haven't spoken… with the 'Whistleblower'"
-Parodied @POTUS' call
-"Mr. Z" referred to Zelensky
But today we're supposed to trust him? pic.twitter.com/NELzVp2usX
— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) January 22, 2020
“[Schiff] just talked for two hours and 15 minutes, and we’re supposed to believe everything he’s said today. In spite of that history – where seven important things he had exactly wrong,” Jordan told reporters.
“So, yeah,” Jordan continued, “when he talks about (Ambassador) Sondland, he doesn’t tell you that was all presumption. Mr. Sondland said that, when Congressman Turner asked him, under oath, at the hearing.”
“So, that’s the kind of game that they’re playing here, and, again, I think that the American people see through it all,” the Republican from Ohio concluded.
Adam Schiff is a flat out liar. About. Every. Thing.
Impeachment Drama a TV Ratings Bust
Not only has the second day of impeachment coverage lost a ton of viewers, but many networks aren’t even bothering to air it.
Well, impeachment sure isn’t doing the broadcast networks any good. Not only has the second day of coverage lost a ton of viewers, but many networks aren’t even bothering to air it at all.
According to the ratings services, 11 million viewers turned in on Thursday to watch the coverage as Democrats continued to lie their asses off at every turn. But that was off 2.8 million from Wednesday.
As to the Daily Mail reported:
The Nielsen ratings data showed the number of viewers who engaged with the trial fell short of the roughly 13.8 million viewers who tuned in last November for the first day of the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry.
Tuesday’s figures covered 4.5 hours of daytime coverage across six networks that aired live, including Walt Disney Co’s ABC, ViacomCBS Inc’s CBS, Comcast Corp’s NBC and MSNBC, AT&T Inc’s CNN and Fox Corp’s Fox News.
The NFL usually gets about 15 million viewers per game, as an example, and football has fallen in numbers, too. so, this is a big blow to the Democrats.
The Democrats had been hoping to galvanize the country to rise up to support impeachment or at least vote Trump out in 2020.
But it seems clear that the TV networks — as left-wing as they are — aren’t even that into the impeachment gambit.
Most of them haven’t even been showing it.
As the Associated Press reported:
The first night of arguments in favor of President Donald Trump’s impeachment before the U.S. Senate was judged not ready for prime time by many of the nation’s television executives.
ABC, CBS and NBC all stuck with regularly scheduled programs like “Chicago Med,” “Criminal Minds” and “Modern Family” Wednesday evening instead of showing the House managers’ evening session at the impeachment trial. That lasted about two hours, 15 minutes.
CNN and MSNBC carried the trial in full. Fox News Channel, after showing Rep. Adam Schiff speak for about a half hour, interrupted for a story about a child support case involving former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, and never returned.
Even two PBS stations in the New York area showed science programming and “Antiques Roadshow” instead of the trial Wednesday evening. PBS said it gave its local stations the option to show the trial or not.
Yep. Even the liberal TV networks knew better than to bet their ratings on this fiasco.
Impeachment seems to be a big loser for the Democrats.
Angry Dad Confronts Warren On Student Loan Forgiveness: ‘Can I Have My Money Back?’
A dad who paid for his daughter’s education confronted Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren over student loan forgiveness: ‘Can I have my money back?’
“So you’re gonna pay for people who didn’t save any money, but those of us who did the right thing get screwed?”
A Father confronts @SenWarren
Father : My daughter is in school, I saved all my money just to pay student loans Can I have my money back?
Warren: of course not
Father: so you want to help those who don't save any money and the ones that do the right thing get screwed? pic.twitter.com/EY8M57tj9F

The father of a college student was seen confronting Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren about her plan to cancel student loan debt in a video that went viral earlier this week.
The dad chastised Warren over her plan, and got especially heated after the senator and 2020 presidential candidate told him he could not get the money back that he saved to pay for his daughter’s school. (RELATED: Colleges And Universities Are Creating A Lost Generation Of Americans)
“My daughter is in school. I saved all my money. Am I gonna get my money back?” the dad asked.
“Of course not,” Warren replied. More
Twitter chimes in:

Pay close attention people. This is exactly what socialism looks like. It fails because everyone stops contributing and everyone keeps taking. Eventually every single person ends up flat broke on welfare dependent on the government who cannot provide anything to anyone.

Socialists crack me up. On one hand they scream the loudest about fairness for all, while on the other hand, they are the first to slam the door on anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their whacked out ideology, which in turn of course lines their pockets & helps make them very rich.

Florida Voters Dismiss Impeachment While Mocking Schiff & Nadler
Florida voters dismissed impeachment while mocking Adam Schiff as Jerry Nadler “as Abbott and Costello.”
Voters in Florida are continuing to show their support for the president amid the ongoing Senate impeachment trial, with one voter warning that history will remember “this House” and “this speaker” for “the travesty they’ve done to this country.”
Trump supporters reacted to the first day of the Senate impeachment trial and continued to show their steadfast support for the president.
“How will history view this time in America,” a Fox News reporter asked a voter in Jupiter, Florida, who said history will remember the president and his family for their “sacrifices” and “what he has done for this country.”
“They’re also going to remember this House, this speaker, for what the travesty they’ve done to this country, the damage that they’ve done to this country, and the harm across the world. They will be remembered,” she said to applause.
“After what was said yesterday, we all heard some of the things that were said in the proceedings, you get the screenshot of Schiff and Nadler together, and you just can’t help but look at the two of them standing next to one another and think ‘that’s the Democrats’ answer to Abbott and Costello,’” another joked.
Fox News also spoke to a Trump supporter who immigrated from Mexico, who said that the Democrats’ impeachment effort is embarrassing the U.S.
It’s great to see Legal Immigrants loving America and fighting for her.
— Mary Fowler 555⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@Merryflower33) January 22, 2020
“It’s an embarrassment to try to impeach the best president ever. I mean his accomplishments are just huge,” she said, citing the low unemployment rate and his efforts to halt illegal immigrants from entering the country.
“I hope all the Republican senators stand strong.”
We are a laughing stock, because of the Democratic party, who is trying to do something illegal, when they know they can’t and the American people know there lies, leaks and dirty politics, with massive corruption!

Fact Checking Adam Schiff’s Lies on First Day of Senate Impeachment Trial
During his first day at the Senate’s impeachment proceedings, House Democrat Adam Schiff told one lie after another.
During his first day at the Senate’s impeachment proceedings, House Democrat Adam Schiff told one lie after another. Breitbart’s Joel Pollak tore Schiff’s lies apart with a great fact check on Wednesday.
For instance, Schiff claimed that President Trump withheld a White House meeting and military aide from Ukraine until they announced an investigation into Joe Biden’s son and his corrupt deals with a Ukrainian energy company.
But Pollak labeled that “False.”
“There is no direct evidence of that in the entire House record,” Pollak noted.
Every part of that claim is untrue, and directly contradicted by the evidence that emerged in the House’s own inquiry.
Schiff is clearly relying on the testimony of U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland, who made the surprise announcement in his prepared statement for the public impeachment inquiry in the House Intelligence Committee that there had been a “quid pro quo” — a White House meeting in exchange for an announcement of investigations.
Under questioning, however, Sondland admitted that he had no direct knowledge of a “quid pro quo.” In fact, he testified that when he asked President Trump what he wanted from Ukraine, he said “nothing” and “no quid pro quo.”
The transcript of Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Zelensky also shows that Trump had already invited the leader to a White House meeting.
Further, there was never any discussion of withholding the aid in question.
“The U.S. aid that was temporarily withheld was ‘security assistance’ — not the all-important Javelin anti-tank missiles, which Trump provided earlier (and President Barack Obama had not),” Pollak noted. “The hold had to do with future funding and had no effect on the flow of funds to Ukraine during the summer of 2019, when the temporary hold was in place.”
Pollak also made a salient point: “It is also odd how gung-ho Schiff and his colleagues have suddenly become about helping Ukraine resist Russia when they were silent when President Obama appeased Russia for years and denied aid to a Ukraine under attack.”
Virginia Democrats Now Want to Make Criticism of Government a Crime
Now, Vir. Democrats want to make criticism of government illegal. Is there any anti-American law that Virginia Democrats don’t want to pass?
Now, Democrats in Virginia want to make criticism of government illegal. Is there any anti-American law that Virginia Democrats don’t want to pass these days?
After summarily eliminating every single Virginia Republican gun bill in one day with a wave of their hands, the majority Democrats have now introduced House Bill 1627, a bill that expressly outlaws criticism of government.
This affront to free speech was filed by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne.
As Big League Politics reported:
The legislation “provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.”
This bill does no less than criminalize free speech — especially political free speech. And political free speech is precisely the sort of free speech that the founders most wanted to protect.
Including, and especially the very founders that were from Virginia!
“If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, shall use a computer or computer network to communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act, he is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor,” this outrageous legislation adds.
With the bill specifying government officers, it clearly makes criticizing those officials against the law.
There couldn’t be a more un-American bill?
“Wow on cue, now they are after the 1A! Dems are trying to set up special rules exclusive to the Elite ruling class, to protect themselves from criticism!” Republican Delegate Nick Freitas said in a Facebook post.
