The Amazing Grace restored to
America by Dr. Ben Carson

Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/9/2013 10:21:21 PM

A phenomenon we all needed came into our view at National Prayer Breakfast 2013, and it couldn’t have come along at a better time. The phenomenon in the person of Dr. Ben Carson didn’t just upstage President Barack Obama when he spoke at Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast, he restored amazing grace to a loudly-lauded event. How can we take to heart an event touted as “inspirational” and beneficial to federal government officials when they piously break breakfast bread before returning to careers duking it out in House and Senate?

Comments:
It sure is a pleasure reading uplifting articles about such an honorable man. I can´t remember the last time I felt so good in listening to someone speak. He has struck a chord in us and shows that the American people are hungry for a leader who loves this country and all it has to offer. What a lovely change. He is the very antithesis of Barack Hussein 0bama.

Somebody needs to tell that oafish baboon Bob Beckel that this was 100% appropriate for the Prayer Breakfast. It could not have been more inspirational, more tone-perfect for these or any times. Carson has become a national hero to quite a few. A breath of very fresh, invigorating, restorative air.

Watched "Gifted Hands" tonight...the movie about Dr. Carson starring Cuba Gooding Jr.. Excellent! It´s clear his mother was the force in his life. Great little movie. Get it on Netflix.

Dr Carson´s message was pitch-perfect, of course. A pleasant secondary effect was watching the sourpuss President reacting to it.

We certainly need him right now. More and more very good people are surfacing...Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, Rand Paul, Allen West, Glenn Beck....I´m sure anyone reading this can add twice as many names to this list. Tiny bit by tiny bit, I´m beginning to find the courage to hope...just a little.
Now if Karl Rove would just quit resembling an anchor around our feet....

Watch obama´s face. While I don´t know exactly what he is thinking I can sure guess and I bet I am close. Dr. Carson is more qualified to run this country than that dork pretending to be president wishing he was playing golf. Thank you sir, we needed that moment listening to you speak from the heart.

Glad you watched it #2! I really was moved when I saw it. Dr. Carson is really an inspiration. It is too bad that most of the lefties and seminar posters on Mediaite are so nasty, rude and ignorant in their comments about him after the other article about him. I hope more articles come out about his speech at the NPB.

Dr.Carson demonstrated that the best way to connect with people is simplicity and common sense. Politicians get too wrapped up in nuisance and parsing for people to connect.

I also got the impression that he doesn´t care for the left blaming successful people for this country´s problems,especially over this fair share crap.

Medical savings accounts should be the way everybody gets health insurance.For one thing,i tmakes people aware of wasteful dr visits and tests.You have a certain amount of money for out of pocket expenses,then you pay out of your own pocket.

Obamacare wouldn´t have been a problem if it just required people to buy catastrophic insurance,not a-z coverage.It´s the big unpaid surgeries that are causing the cost shifts.

the left still sticks to the belief that this is the richest country in the world and everybody should be entitled to free healthcare.

True greatness isn´t attained by soaring rhetoric but by the revelation of simple yet profound truths. Ben Carson reminded us that a nation that loses its reverence for life and the protection of the most vulnerable among us, the unborn and those near the end, will itself not survive long. The soul of a nation withers before its body dies.

Dr. Carson spoke from the heart without teleprompter. How truly wonderful.

Our President sat there looking more uncomfortable as the speech continued.

Instead of being a community rabble rouser he and his wife actually help children and do not take excuses as a reason for failure.

Now why would this make Obama so uncomfortable?

Dr. Ben Carson is justifiably proud of his phenomenally noteworthy past and is all too willing to be totally open and aboveboard by telling the entire world about it. Contrast the good doctor with BHO, the most deceptively artful dodger who ever attained high public office by going to unprecedented lengths in concealing everything he could about the emptiest of empty suits that he truly is. Carson worked his way up. Obama sneaked his way in. The perspective between the two is breathtaking. The comparisons are incomparable.

Remember the scene from "Dirty Dancing" where the gigolo dance instructor thanks the doctor who saves his girlfriend´s life after a botched abortion? It suddenly dawns on him after meeting a person of real accomplishment that his easy-going, partying lifestyle adds up to nothing. I wonder if similar thoughts occurred to BO when he met Dr Carson? BO tricked & defrauded his way into public office, but he knows better than anyone what a nothing he is. Maybe that is why he seemed so uncomfortable. He was in the presence of REAL greatness & the contrast was undeniable.

I too listened to the speech and was impressed and moved like many on this thread. I wouldn´t hesitate to vote for the good doctor. It is obvious president Zero is quite uncomfortable. Worth watching just for that.

After watching, I asked myself the question... "Would Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan disagree with anything Dr Carson stated?" I think they would fully agree. Yet we conservatives couldn´t unite behind that ticket. We have many other qualified republicans, Rubio, Paul, Cruz, Perry, etc, who would all agree completely. Somehow we always find some issue where we disagree and throw these quality candidates under the bus. Already happening to Rubio. My guess is we would do the same to Dr Carson.

Here is how you know that Dr. Carson knows God:

“It really didn’t matter who I was sitting in front of. Before I speak, I ask God to give me the right things to say.”

Any committed Christian who is used to public speaking or teaching knows that when you turn to God for the right words, He gives them to you. Dr. Carson is the real deal, but you can rest assured the Left will begin its character assassination post-haste.

Did you watch Obama during Dr. Carson speech? I watched him the whole half hour and he was alternately bored, angry, infuriated at the effrontery of Dr. Carson´s words and vengeful. You could see barely-disguised disdain and fury: "I´ll get you, my pretty. And your little dog, too."

RUN, BEN, RUN! For POTUS.

What a man! I could go on and on about Dr. Carson, but we´ve seen who he is and what he is.....a distinguished, accomplished man who does not look upon the rest of us - or his country - as inferior to him.

What a stark contrast in character, dignity and grace from the mean, snarky little man who now occupies the Oval Office.

According to Good Morning America´s Linzie Janis, a CEO who made a donation in opposition to gay marriage is the same as the hateful members of Westboro Baptist. On Friday, Janis reported on Brendan Eich, the former head of the tech company Mozilla. Eich was ousted after liberal groups found out that in 2008 he made a $1000 donation to support Proposition 8 in California. As Janis spoke about the six-year-old donation, video footage of Westboro Baptist protesters with "God hates f***" and "soldiers die 4 *** marriage" signs appeared on-screen. [See video below.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Finally, someone has come up with a way to settle the debate over climate change: Put the people on the wrong side of the argument in cages.

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided. The senators´ move puts them among several groups -- from farmers and land developers to

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as

“Morning has broken, like the first morning.” Whatever your faith, if you’ve got any at all, that’s pretty much what it boils down to. The sun comes up, and we give it another shot.(snip) Stevens converted to Islam in the late 1970s, and he angered a lot of fans when he appeared to support the fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie with comments he made in 1989. But for a kid in thrall to the kinetic power of the spinning records in his father’s hi-fi console, Stevens seemed to be living proof that popular music (he had 11 Top 40 hits in
