Dream Scenario For The GOP:
Dr. Ben Carson, Republican
Presidential Nominee

Mediaite, by Joe Concha

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/11/2013 3:25:08 PM

This week’s TIME magazine cover features 2016 GOP frontrunner Marco Rubio with an inescapable headline: “THE REPUBLICAN SAVIOR”. Given Mitt Romney’s stinging defeat in November and the almost-comical party-infighting since, Republicans could use that kind hero right now. While Mr. Rubio’s story is inspiring (son of Cuban immigrants graduates law school cum laude, overwhelmingly elected to the U.S. Senate at only age 38), and while he’s currently the best candidate to take on Hillary Clinton in 2016 (assuming she runs, which she will), there may be a very distinguished someone (who has never held public office) ready

Comments:
Indeed it is. Unfortunately, he stated that he was an Independent when he was on Fox & Friends yesterday.

No. He will be destroyed if he runs. He is better as a culture warrior.

Enough with the dems, ´borking,´ merited GOP candidates!!! We are on to their redundant ruthless political tactic of character assination, which is now beginning to backfire on them!! It is obvious dem pols AND their media have no shame, ...and are of devious character as well.

Dr. Carson would have our votes should he decide to be a candidate! Having such a respected, merited doctor in the WH at this particular time would benefit the country and beyond! (...As it is, there are far too many statist lawyers messing with the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights inside the foggy-bottom beltway!!)

Because he´s black? We need to counter Obama´s presidency with a black man? I give the man props for his brilliance and logic, but I doubt he´s interested in running for one thing, and it would just look like he was a token candidate.

I think that Dr. Carson has more to offer as a neurosurgeon than as a politician. We have great GOP politicians, if the GOP members would just realize it. We fight each other rather than compromise and unify. There is no conservative Messiah that will save us all. Ugh!

C´mon people! You´re flocking to the Carson bandwagon the same as you did to that of Cain. You´re embarrassing yourselves.

Do we really believe that "once you´ve gone black, you never go back?!" Pshaw!

Leave the good Doctor alone to be an inspiration to his people...and indeed all people who believe in the U.S.A. as the land of opportunity.

Not bad #6. Imagine if we now had John Bolton as Secretary of State instead of f´n-Purple Heart collector. One working for America, one working for himself and his legacy.

Question: If a Secretary of State is injured on the job, e.g. sprained his thumb during in-flight turbulence while flying to the Caribbean for a meeting, is he entitled to a Purple Heart?

I have even more respect or Dr. Carson now that I know he isn´t a Republican. If he ever ran, it wouldn´t be the character assassination from the left that would bother him. (Nah, just give it your best shot MSM.)
The problem is, Dr. Carson would never allow his words to be controlled by the likes of the GOP establishment boys. He doesn´t suffer fools easily.

It would help the country throughout the coming years to have many, MANY merited potential Presidential candidates speak out honestly about getting our ship of state back on its Constitutional course. Liberty needs as many as are willing to speak from their heart with wisdon and are of Dr. Carson´s boldness & courage to step into the arena where each can express America´s principled values and historical heritage and be actually heard by voters and NOT SIFTED by the alphabets! Such voices should be, ...´showering,´ the country with the truth. Overwhelm the statists with the true facts and stats which cannot be denied at this sad point in America the Beautiful´s history!

The dems & THEIR media will have too many authentically qualified candidates of good character in the arena to simply target & harrass any one of them with their usual fabricated barbs, as they have done so often in the past! (...Think Dan Quayle, Sarah Palin, etc.. They tried that vile tactic on Ronald Reagan but it didn´t work then and it simply can´t work yet again in the future or else America will become unrecognizable.)

Dr. Carson is retiring. The kind of surgery he does runs into many hours standing and working and he is almost 62. I understand he has indicated he would be willing to run. He is black and we need to fight fire with fire, so to speak. I have never jumped on any bandwagon until now.

Dr. Carson for President!

One speech?! Isn´t that the same foolishness and skittishness that gave us Øbama? I never heard of Dr. Carson before he embarrassed the Jerk in chief at the prayer breakfast. I have no idea what his politics are or where he has been. He sounds nice enough. Let´s see if he is a fighter, a firebrand for conservative ideals. He sounds like a perfectly nice, wonderful person. I want to see more - a lot more!

The plot to make Big Food pay
Politico, by Helena Bottemiller Evich    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/12/2014 4:15:02 PM     Post Reply
Lawyers are pitching state attorneys general in 16 states with a radical idea: make the food industry pay for soaring obesity-related health care costs. It’s a move straight from the playbook of the Big Tobacco takedown of the 1990s, which ended in a $246 billion settlement with 46 states, a ban on cigarette marketing to young people and the Food and Drug Administration stepping in to regulate. There are plenty of naysayers, just as there were in 1994 when Mike Moore, Mississippi’s attorney general, famously suggested suing the tobacco industry. But a number of nutrition and legal experts think a similar

Stop feeding starving children, or else! The American Humanist Association sent that message to a school in Robbinsdale, Minn., accusing them of violating the U.S. Constitution by allowing students to participate in a community service project at a church that involved preparing meals for impoverished children in Haiti. The humanists got their britches in a bunch after the family of a student at the School of Engineering and Arts objected to the project being held at Calvary Lutheran Church. “The school has clearly violated the Establishment Clause,” AHA attorney Monica Miller wrote in a threatening letter to the school and district officials.

Congress approves increase in

The Senate passed a suspension of the limit on federal borrowing Wednesday, ensuring that the Treasury does not default on its more than $17 trillion debt for another year. With the Republican-controlled House approving the "clean" debt ceiling increase Tuesday without any concessions, the legislation now goes to President Obama for his signature. The votes came two weeks before the Feb. 27 deadline, after which financial experts warned of havoc in financial markets if Congress hadn’t acted. The final passage vote came after a dramatic, hour-long vote to end debate and assure Republicans did not filibuster the legislation. Needing 60 votes, including

White House transcript hides Obama’s
chattering-class gaffe [Video]
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/12/2014 3:22:12 PM     Post Reply
White House officials have quietly changed an official transcript to hide President Barack Obama’s embarrassing historical error during his international press conference with French President Francois Hollande. Obama’s error came when he misnamed Alexis de Tocqueville, a clear-eyed Frenchman who explained the subtle miracle of American culture and democracy in the 1830s. His book is a classic, partly because his insights about Americans’ social equality and civic society have become commonplace among centrists and conservatives. But Obama called him “Alex” in front of the French and U.S. press, and while facing banks of TV cameras. The White House’s official transcript,

Wyoming officials are gearing up for a potential court battle against the Environmental Protection Agency as they try to reverse a sweeping agency ruling that transferred more than 1 million acres of land -- including an entire city of 10,000 -- to Native American tribes. The dispute started in December when the EPA ruled on a request from the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes, which sought "state status" in order to administer air quality monitoring. The EPA determined the land in question actually belongs to the Wind River Indian Reservation and has for more than a century, despite a 1905

In the mid-1980s, in my student days at New Jersey’s Rutgers University, I once got into an argument at the campus pub with a student activist who thought communism was unfairly maligned. (Back then, I had a reputation as a right-wing extremist because I didn’t think it was crazy to call the USSR—from which my family and I had emigrated a few years earlier—an evil empire.) When I mentioned the tendency of communist regimes to rack up a rather high body count, the young man parried, “Well, what about all the people capitalism kills? Like the people who die from

Senator Ted Cruz is threatening another filibuster. The Texas Republican is bucking his party, insisting that a vote to raise the nation’s debt ceiling —which GOP leadership had agreed to debate as a “clean” bill, meaning that they wouldn’t attempt to attach spending cuts to it— be held to a 60-vote threshold. In doing so, he would open the bill, scheduled to be discussed on Wednesday, to the possibility of a filibuster. On a Tuesday conference call with Texas reporters, Cruz said of the debt ceiling issue, "If you get outside Washington, D.C., it´s a no-brainer." The Senator´s office released

Twenty-two teachers at an upstate New York public school wrote letters to a judge supporting a colleague who sexually assaulted an 8-year-old boy, and parents of students in the Rochester district want those teachers´ names. The letters, some on school district stationery, were written to a judge on behalf of gym teacher Matthew LoMaglio, 37, who was convicted in November of second-degree sexual conduct against a child and endangering the welfare of a child. LoMaglio is serving four years in prison for the assaults, which took place in 2006 and 2007 and only came to light after the boy came

King branded as “morons” many conservatives in the GOP caucus who consistently oppose any effort to pass the debt limit, asserting they are the same faction that led to the government shutdown last year. “This is the same group that back in September and October went into a government shutdown that everybody knew was a disaster,” King said on MSNBC. “They ended up looking like morons following Ted Cruz over the cliff.” King had been

As Steve has just argued, if Mitt Romney had been elected president and then proceeded to rewrite Obamacare on his alleged executive authority, Democrats would probably be screaming for his impeachment. So should Republicans be screaming for President Obama’s impeachment? John says no: Technically, President Obama’s misuse of executive agencies to harass his political opponents and his usurpation of Congress’s powers by purporting to rewrite statutes by executive decree–the Obamacare changes are not the only instances–are grounds for impeachment. These are, in fact, precisely the sorts of abuses for which the impeachment remedy was intended, and for which no other remedy is

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term.

Michelle Obama´s lust for luxury has always been a bit of a problem for her husband and Democrats in general. Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left. But the First Lady has now outdone herself, and because a picture is worth a thousand words, the damage may be a bit more serious than the occasional grumble over designer shoes and livin´ large.
