A Perfect Contrast
American Thinker, by William Sullivan

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 2/10/2013 6:16:04 AM

Contrast can bring clarity. And I do not think that the two warring political ideologies in America have never been personified, juxtaposed, and as clearly defined as the contrast we witnessed at this week´s National Prayer Breakfast. Dr. Benjamin Carson, the famed director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University, was given the unique opportunity to share his beliefs before a distinguished audience, including President Barack Obama. He did not waste the opportunity, and courageously expressed his beliefs with conviction, contrary though they are to those of the president.

Fabulous. But where is this story in the MSM? The progressives, Marxists, & Democrats will blow this off. "People" are to stupid to control their lives. And if they aren´t, it is unfair to give the advantage to smart people. Any way he can´t get elected because the Dem´s have perfected how to steal elections. No matter what, he will lose 49%to51 %.

"When the enemy comes in like a flood, then
God will raise a standard", Dr. Carson is indeed part of the standard raising the flag for righteousness. How can we give up hope when we have wonderful people like this on our side. Wow! I will get his book, I had never heard of him until now.

This article must be a Must Read simply because it is the beginning of an important transformation.

Even the dullest and lowest informed person can see or feel that something is horribly wrong in our beloved country. Mr. Duke has hit the nail on the head with the word contrast.

Good teachers use that method to get an important point across. Dr. Carson did it so supremely well that I have to pinch myself that such courage exists in these days of Obama, and, most importantly, to King Obama´s face!

The last few sentences of the article must be stated over and over again.

...Dr. Ben Carson owns a legacy as an innovative pioneer of his field and philanthropist whose life and work have personally touched, and even saved, countless others. Barack Obama, on the other hand, despite all his celebrity, owns a legacy that amounts to little more than stirring fear and outrage on the premise that others are not doing enough to help people.

Which ideology has produced the more effective, positive outcome?

Excellent article. Truly inspiring and a wonderful man. I submit most of what he said, LoFos notwithstanding, was not unknown to the 47% parasites who voted last November. The Left has invested two generations of (mal)education and acculturation to create the base they are now harvesting by making themselves the only ticket to a free meal. Zippy is a mere token of this poison swamp.
2008 and 2012 have shown that politics as usual is not the answer - anymore than petitioning George III was back then.

Let the Left´s character assassination begin. It won´t be long before Dr. Carson is painted as a womanizing, profligate, devil-worshiping pedophile who (gasp) has money in the Caymans.

He´ll be hard to bring down, though.

Pondering the Dr. Carson mega-phenom, it´s clear that our prayers for God to send us a real leader can be answered with Dr. Carson´s service to America. As one journalist put it, "Ben Carson for President".

Fear not little lambs. God´s timing is perfect.

Watching Dr.Carson´s speech gave me inspiration and hope that I have not felt since Obama was elected. His thoughts were simply said yet powerfully effective.

May God bless and keep you in his care and protection Dr. Carson

Oh, this is so frustrating.

Certainly there are issues to be tackled with our current health INSURANCE programs. But there was no massive public outcry -NONE- for it to be changed so drastically, so suddenly.

This Obamascare nightmare is about, and ONLY about, control of US through our health records (and quite possibly, our voter registration records).

Don´t think it´s anything more, or less, than that. They want to control our medical care through our finances, and they´ll control our finances completely, soon enough.

Cheers to Dr. Carson for saying these things in a very noticeable forum, and thanks to everyone else for noticing. He is exactly right in that context ... if that was all this scheme was about.

It was difficult not to observe the two, nearly side-by-side, and weep for what should be, and more so for what is.

Dr. Ben Carson is a breath of clean, fresh air. Clearly Obama was clueless as to what Dr. Ben might say and appeared to be a bit uncomfortable about what he heard. It was like pealing the stenchful layers off a rotten onion and exposing the clean, fragile layers in the center. "An Eagle needs a left wing and a right wing to fly."

It was a great speech - I rolled it back & listened to it twice. Two thing really stood out. He spoke in a simple, straight-forward manner. Anybody listening could understand the points he was making. Also, I loved the part about his mother making him read & write book reports. More parents should do this! Reading is so important & it doesn´t have to cost a thing - I´ve always said there is no excuse to be uninformed when there are libraries full of books in every city.

Wonderful, factual, and inspiring speech by Dr. Carson and wonderful article by Mr. Sullivan. People are discussing Dr. Carson´s speech and that fact alone makes me feel better about things today than I have in a very long time.

President Obama´s lack of offering courteous applause, his steely expression, and his attention paid to his IPod or Blackberry or whatever he was using in an attempt to avoid the good doctor´s words, spoke volumes about the character (or serious lack of) of the man. As much as he tried not to show it, the truth of Dr. Carson´s words burrowed deep into the President´s psyche and created havoc there.

Watch Obama during Dr. Carson´s speech.
The Bamster is furious - even looking at his blackberry during the HSA (Health Savings Account from birth to death) portion of the talk.

Obama is vile and full of contempt because he was looking at Goodness personified.

I´m tired of everyone assuming the "unthinking morons" are in the majority....

The bamboozler won because most whites who voted for him had the ever present "white guilt" on their shoulders. My husband -- a Roosevelt democrat -- voted for the bamboozler because he felt he "should because he was black"....nonsense....

My husband started his own company -- ran it beautifully -- made money the ole American way -- BUT -- he knew BO had screwed up the economy -- BUT -- he figured the next president could fix the BO´s mess.

oooo! good observation, #23!

Dr. Carson is a wonderful man. And he had a wonderful, wonderful Mom.

This is another interesting contrast between BO and Dr. Carson: their upbringing. Both had absentee fathers. But ponder the impact a mother (parent) can have and what a great consequence possibly for the world!

BO´s mother hated America, seems to have been driven and energized by spite, envy, hatred.

Mrs. Carson, she was a woman of faith who wanted the best for her sons and drove them hard to READ and study and work hard. No bitterness. No inculcation of envy or corrosive attitudes.

The contrasts and comparisons are multitudinous. This is why the msm(leftwing propaganda machine) can not risk fuller exposure.

Dr. Carson has been in the public eye at least since 2004 with President Bush. Amazing, though, we have a world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon (who happens to be black), and the broader public has been kept in the dark. pathetic.

God bless Dr. Carson and his family.

The differences in health care philosophy are not about solutions - everyone knows Carson is right. It´s about power - Obama and the D party want more bureaucracies and employees who staff them to get more unionized employees (heads) and dues for funding their campaigns. It is clear and simple. It´s about the democrat politicians and the union bosses. Everyone else is a pawn to be bought off at election time.

Back in the early 1990´s, Dr. Carson´s book, Gifted Hands, was required reading for all three of our kids (we required it!) and each had to write a book report on it. It was so inspiring, encouraging and I believe should be required reading in schools.

If you watch the video closely you can see the expression on Zero´s face change remarkably, from mild interest, to boredom, to aggravation and finally to seething anger. Once he did the chin in the air with the LOOK on his face with about 12 minutes or so to go in the Dr.´s speech, you knew the Dr. had him and had him good. Remarkable to watch, but not surprising. Actually a 1/2 hour interior view of Zero´s personality if you watch him and listen to the Dr. at the same time. Every American should watch it in this way, for those that haven´t seen it (we´ve seen it dozens of times) it can only be a real eye opener to everyone except the most extreme Kool-Aid drinkers.

In a perfect world, Dr. Ben Carson would be President of the United States and Barack Obama would still be street-agitating in Chicago.
Which is why the leftist msm will bury this.

The eagle soars because it has a left wing and a right wing. Love that! All the while Obama grinds his teeth and wishes he was anywhere else.

Note also that the young Marine who confronted Dianne Feinstein with his letter, "No Ma´am" (I love that form of address) also said, in his interview on CNN, "Unconstitutional ´laws´ aren´t laws." His name? Joshua Boston.

Should we soon expect from Dr. Carson his new book: "Dreams From My Mother"? [What an amazing contrast between his and Obama´s moms!]

And speaking of contrast, it is worth noting that both the left and right halves of these (dis)United States are currently celebrating a black man. We, of course, have Dr. Carson; they have Christopher Dorner.

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
