The Progressive hit media are frantically circling the wagons, probably formulating a potent Alinsky Rule # 5 offense against sage Ben Carson. Just yesterday, Media Matters went into full attack mode. It appears the leftists were blindsided by the transparency and unassuming integrity of this gifted brain surgeon. No doubt they are embarrassed by their previous sycophantic accolades heralding his exceptional accomplishments in his chosen field of pediatric neurosurgery.
Good article, but it must have had a word count limit... The article stops abruptly with what reads like a truncated last paragraph that should have been developed or dropped.
Dr. Ben is a timely, emerging national treasure. However, it´s in a way sad that someone must live such a powerful and also such a squeeky clean life to survive on the Right. We must push back much stronger on the Lefty demonetization merchants because there simply aren´t enough clean, powerful spokesmen like Carson to get the job done. That strong push back must include Messers Letterman, Leno and Stewart, and SNL. They are devilishly effective with their ridicule, passed off as some kind of humor. Watching them from some very hot place, Saul Alinksy is smiling as they destroy good people.
Incidentally, Wayne Newton knows the power of this late night ridicule. For some time, Johnny Carson mercilessly made sport of Wayne Newton in his nightly monologues. Mr. In exasperation, Newton tells of paying an in person visit to Carson in Burbank to put a stop to it. And it stopped. Immediately.
Hell hath no fury like a Leftist scorned. The character assassination of Dr. Carson will soon begin.
How dare he deviate from the party line? Only a wicked, false, corrupt and conniving scoundrel could fail to concur that Leftists have the sublimest of motives, know everything, and are always right, making disagreement with them an abuse of free speech(like shouting fire in a crowded theater) or even, perhaps, a true hate crime.
Leftists are great champions of diversity, tolerance, inclusiveness, fairness, justice, social and economic justice etc. etc. etc. But they do have a limit to the amount of nonsense they are prepared to put up with.
It would, of course, be different if there were any good, honest, sane, moral reason for someone like Dr. Carson to disagree with Leftist politics. That is a matter of free speech, which Leftists revere.
But denying and continuing deny obvious truths such as Leftist ideology is not free speech. It is pernicious, sometimes willful error. Only bad people engage in such behavior.
We need the GOP to start calling out these liberals who hate America, and hate accomplishment.
Reagan wasn´t afraid to use the word liberal and Democrat together, but today´s GOP leaders seem to be couching their words.
They want to include Congress which includes them when they need to point the finger of failure at the 6 long years of liberal Democrat control of the Senate, and the failed 4 years under Nancy Pelosi.
The economy started to turn somewhat only AFTER the GOP took control of the House.
Bill Clinton only had a balanced budget AFTER the GOP took control of the House.
Gee, #1, we might as well give up and not even have a candidate in 2016. /s
We need to step it up and support those brave enough to run for office, and perhaps, save this country! I´ll begin by posting this article on FB, planting the seed with the lo-fos that what they will be hearing about Dr. Carson is not necessarily true.
Typical background would include 4 years of undergraduate work in a specified pre-medical curriculum with stellar GPA and outstanding scores on the MCAT (medical school entrance exam), four years of medical school, three-four years general surgery residency, 3 years fellowship training in neurosurgery, perhaps additional year in pediatric neurosurgery. Then, you start your career. Very tough to paint a pediatric neurosurgeon as an "idiot". Doesn´t mean they will not try, but then, who is the idiot?
I think Dr. Carson is prepared for the attacks from the left. I wonder if he´s not been called an "Uncle Tom" or been accused of "Affirmative Action" attacks throughout his medical career. I think he´ll be able to handle this.
Even more disgusting to me than the rats doing their expected trashing of our best candidates are those on the so-called right falling for it.
There are right wing people, maybe some even on this site, who still trash Sarah. Well if Sarah were POTUS we´d have a chance to climb out of the ever worsening disaster we´re in. If Cain hadn´t been trashed we might actually get a government we taxpayers have a chance to afford without ruining our own bank accounts.
Instead we have the worst government in our history, Mao and Stalin would approve of the takeover process that will just get worse. And meanwhile some on the right have their noses in the air sniveling "she quit her job as governor", "he probably had girlfriends" , "he´s a cultist". I say look for someone perfect in heaven, not here.
I´m no longer afraid for my country - virtually impossible to see us reclaiming what we once were. Now I´m afraid for myself and my family.
lead by example! Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker faced horrific odds and the people of the state backed him up. He had death threats, which would have landed a Rep. in jail, but because it was a teacher she was found innocent. The Capitol had fecal matter spread about and at the doors of the Rep. representatives. Urine, markers, foul and crude language was common in the hallways. Posters, protesters, eggs, nastiness was used. Lies and intimidations were everywhere. But the citizens of the state held fast. It´s time to push back! Good men need our influence. Obama and his staff are great pretenders and inferior when it comes to serving this nation. Roll up your sleves and get involved. I did!
My goodness but the libs are terrified of a black man who wanders off the plantation. I dare say this man had improved more lives in a year than the dems could ever hope to help. I certainly hope he speaks out again and again. I just wish the black community would sit up and listen to his logic.
Dr. Carson is intelligent and articulate. The problem is like Romney if he expounds on any topic, you name it, he opens himself to the grandson of the second worst president in history. While people of low quality, or aged, like Schumer, Warren, Feinstein, Boxer, Franken, Biden, etc, are free to engage mouth with no thought with a James Carter cheering on selective/continuous nonsense.
First, I think Herman was brought down by somebody in the republicrat establishment, probably at the urging of Willard. At the AFP convention, Cain got a standing ovation while Willard got tepid leftovers. And nobody believed a word he said anyway. Second, Ben Carson will probably get hung up exactly where he said ANYBODY will get hung up; in an IRS audit. It´s probably already started. They´ll overcharge him like they did with Schwartz in an effort to silence him. He´s undoubtedly self controlled enough not to kill himself, but the distraction will be mind numbing. How does one defend oneself against spurious charges brought by an organization with unlimited resources?? Third, Dr. Carson better hire some really good security, like Seals or Spetsnaz level dudes. If the left can´t ruin him somehow, I have no doubt they´ll kill him, and we will have lost possibly our last hope.
Dr. Carson is a gift from God. But, how many other Dr. Carsons have been aborted or destroyed by a corrupt and disgraceful education and welfare system that is the Democrat hallmark of the so-called War on Poverty over these last 40 years? The waste in human capital is sickening. Moreover, the few that survive this Democrat holocaust and go on to be successful are often conservative are then destroyed by the Alinsky media and political machines. And we Conservatives and Republicans stand by and let it happen.
When will we go to war over this? The Tea Party began the battle, only to be out gunned and has now fizzled because of internal strife. We outnumber the corrupt Alinskyites, so why can´t we organize? Perhaps Dr. Carson will be the catalyst. And as others have noted, we cannot allow this man to be destroyed by these degenerates.
Dr Carson is a brilliant neurosurgeon who would be better suited as secretary of HHS , because unlike Sebelius , he´s actually familiar with health care and medical issues. The right has begun to treat running for office , especially that of president , as if it´s a popularity contest. " I like this person, let´s make them president " is not a winning formula for nominating candidates. For both parties. Unfortunately ,the Democrats can get away with violating that standard because they control the media . It´s unfair to put the esteemed Dr Carson or the honorable Justice Thomas in the same category as Herman Cain or Sarah Palin. Cain and Palin are responsible for their own troubles. The media did not make Cain have a 13 yr relationship with Ginger White or force Palin to do silly reality shows or make both of them repeatedly fumble legitimate questions.
The ethically-challenged statist politicos who still continue to attack & destroy effective conservative voices in the political arena, including that of the insprirational character of this good and accomplished man, just may not get away with their vile & now routine tactic this time as too many know about Dr. Carson´s personal integrity and selfless life´s work of helping people. Dr. Carson is a good man who merits the American voters´ attention & consideration.
Who would attack such an exemplary, brilliant & compassionate American citizen personally, but Boomtown´s dem statist pol, (& their media), who continue their refusal to intelligently debate the major issues currently challenging the USA? The dem pols refuse the debate because they cannot justify their socialism when it has been proved over & over again in other countries that tyranny fails every time is is tried!!!
The dems have used their routine character assination schtick SO MANY times before, voters SHOULD BE aware of their ruthless lies & scams, but any who still aren´t aware should be so informed by every media venue available to the more ethical & accomplished voices such as Dr. Carson´s than is ever the norm in lefty/lib/statist-corrupted lsm/alphabets-npr/pbs/hollyweird.
Voters want the facts, not any more of the usual spin & lies from the unethical dems´ media!
Republicans have become masters of the circular firing-squad. It´s time to change the dance step.
Whether or not Dr. Carson were to become a candidate is not important at this point. What is important is that Conservatives, Patriots, who stand on the front lines know that we have the proverbial "intestinal fortitude" to stand with them, and not fall by the wayside and creep into the corners when the going gets rough.
We know all about Alinsky. We must disseminate information, truth.
All totalitarian despots are the same: they can not tolerate opposition, word or action, because the truth exposes their fraudulence.
Conservatives, those who love liberty, are the truly tolerant ones; but this intellectual equanimity contributes to a sort of weakness, namely a reluctance to fight for and defend their own convictions.
We can learn from these Dem/Left petty tyrants without becoming like them.
American Thinker´s Philip Cowan is a semantic lying, protecting coward.
Look at his first sentence, "The Progressive hit media are frantically circling the wagons, probably formulating a potent Alinsky Rule # 5 offense". Referring to Alinsky, a communist by every definition, and calling the retrogressive media, the "progressive hit media". Isn´t ANYbody in the New Media going to wake up and call these destroyers what they really are? They are all socialists, collectivists, totalitarians, commies, pinkos, fellow travelers, authoritarians, statists, and influential writers like Cowan call them the cover-up words, "progressive" or "liberal", which they are not. One of the main reasons we are losing the war for freedom is our allowing these despicable droids to disguise themselves with the lovely names of liberal and progressive. Cowan is not stupid. But he is definitely afraid to call them what they are. He´s not alone. Most talk radio, all of Fox TV, even Breitbart, and too many New Media fighting blogs, all call these monsters by these wrong names. Simple reasons, (1.) they are either too scared to break the politically correct patterns set for them to follow, (2.) they are too dumb to figure it out, or, like Cowan, (3.) they are afraid to take charge and call them the despicable destructive titles and labels that they actually ARE. Cowan is a semantic word choosing coward. And he´s recklessly helping the other side, the dictator side of despotism.
#36, Palin didn´t do any silly reality shows. She did a show about Alaska and that was LONG after she was demonized and destroyed by the left and establishment GOP.
#12, But they are NOT "liberal Democrats". They are LEFTIST Democrats. Liberal is still not really a pejorative term. Because of its classical meaning. The leftist Dems should NEVER be called liberal, especially by us. It only helps them continue to mislead people into believing their motives are good. When in truth, most of today´s conservatives are truly the "liberals" in the classic sense of the word. We are the true champions of freedom, liberty, and equality under the law.
Let´s please stop using the word "liberal"!!
We should not be helping the left further their propaganda.
Is there a mother out there, black, white, hispanic, asian, who would NOT believe this good Doctor is an excellent role model? Compare him to the grifter in the WH now. Dr. Carson gives a positive message and real HOPE to the masses by his example.
How about this..Whomever attacks our good Dr Ben Carson, WE start a fund to hire a private investigator/s to attack the attackers. Dig up anything and everything in their fetid lives. Play hardball to destroy these punks. No holds barred. I´d contribute in a heartbeat.
And Alto, agree...We need to have our own raw files ...and a talking points site for conservatives...
Any who attack the good doctor are racist thugs...like all Communists...communist thugs...anti constitutional thugs....slave traders who want to keep people on the government plantation....freedom haters...the language had better get tough..or we loose the House..and then the country...Stop the Communists..stop the America haters
Before he runs, we had better have conservative control of NYT and CBS or at least ABC- if not, forget it- the propaganda machines will be in full swing by 2016- USA faces oblivion. And, do not count on the Republican National to be on Carson´s side- they are now committed to remaining left of center for the foreseeable future-
He is NOT toast, no matter what anyone says about him. I believe him immune to any criticism and he will be the "toast of the town" should he decide to run for any political office. It will drive the Democrats crazy to have a member of a minority race that is untouchable run for office. Mr Cain should have never given up, in my opinion.
It isn´t my intention to compare and contrast the performances of Julie Andrews and Carrie Underwood, both of whom sang the lead role of Maria in The Sound of Music. (snip) The Sound of Music reveals the culture shock that typified the sixties. During that time there was a titanic wrestling match between traditional America and radical America. For the time being, it appears the radical version of our country has prevailed. I watched both the staged and on-screen versions. I honestly felt I may as well have been watching a musical about medieval England. The story seemed as far removed
The political collapse of Barack Obama continues apace, with his own allies in the Democratic Party starting to give up on him. Now comes news that Obamacare supporters outside the party have decided to take matters in their own hands, rather than rely on the White House to sell Obamacare. Noam N. Levey and Kathleen Hennessey of the Los Angeles Times report: As supporters of the Affordable Care Act brace for new headaches next year, many have concluded they cannot count on the Obama administration, whose efforts to explain and promote the law are increasingly viewed as poorly planned, unreliable and
The old media won´t tell you so, but President Obama is facing a revolt from within his own political party. It was bound to happen once the dimensions of the ObamaCare disaster started to become obvious. Yesterday, I pointed out that Charles Rangel is an early indicator of the discontent bubbling beneath the surface, and that he is freer to speak than non-black Democrats. But today we have another leading indicator. (snip)Rosslyn Smith points out: "If Obama has lost Gergen, he´s lost the entire DC establishment. Gergen is almost the perfect indicator of the conventional wisdom inside the beltway.
MSNBC is the gift that keeps on giving, serving up propaganda intended to benefit the far left, but which in its absurdity repels people grounded in reality. Now, one of its hosts, Melissa Harris-Perry, already familiar to AT readers for her theater of the absurd political performance art, has played a race card so bizarre that it self-discredits. (snip) "I want to talk today about a controversial word. It´s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it´s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a
Like communism, the collapse of the Obama Administration agenda is inevitable, not solely as a result of its many flawed policies, but because it lacks an ethical dimension in regard to individual rights, justifiable criteria for its use of state coercion and, in particular, a respect for the truth. Stated simply, Obama lies because the true objectives of his fundamental transformation of the United States are incompatible with American democracy and tradition. (snip) The arrogance and mendacity of the Obama White House is directly proportional to misplaced political loyalty and a submissive and willfully blind press.
By now, the news has spread online of the IRS audit notices sent to two Obamacare whistleblowers. On November 25th, cancer victim Bill Elliott and C. Steven Tucker were informed of the ordeal each was to face. Elliott has been waging a pitched battle with cancer. Tucker is the insurance agent and healthcare freedom activist who informed him that the canceling of his insurance, wrought by the Obama administration for the sake pushing citizens into Obamacare, was illegal. Tucker reached out immediately after Elliott appeared on Fox News´ The Kelly File, Nov. 7th, and Elliott´s insurance was hastily reinstated.
I claim no special insider knowledge of the Democratic Party´s inner workings, but still I am rather certain that discontent with President Obama is bubbling beneath the veneer of public unity behind the Nation´s First Black President. (snip) They´re two of the most powerful African-American politicians in the land. And by most accounts, President Obama and Rep. Charles Rangel hate each other. The most recently revealed salvo in their war of words - Obama´s assertion that Rangel is a "hack," according to the political tome "Double Down" - is just one element of a long-dysfunctional relationship.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
