Why Dr. Ben Carson is my hero --
it´s not what you think

Fox News, by Juan Williams

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/17/2013 6:08:50 AM

Dr. Ben Carson is my hero. But not because of his controversial speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in front of President Obama. Conservative, mostly white Republican critics of the president are praising Dr. Carson because they are ecstatic to see a black man express conservative ideas to the face of a liberal, Democrat and black president’s face. But that is not why I consider Dr. Carson a hero. He is a winner to me for living by the conservative principles I want young America, especially poor black and Latino kids, to see as the prescription for success.

Juan Williams is an idiot. I think the last intelligent liberal is Camille Paglia. They´re all morons now.

I´d absolutely would agree that Dr.Carson would be an inspiration to young kids and nothing to do with race but by being a good example.Of course a liberal like Juan sees everything through a racial purview.

But here ole Juan is trying to praise the good doctor but couldn´t help himself by saying what Dr. Carson did was controversial.It´s only controversial if you don´t believe in free speech any more.

Sen, Cruz has also spoken out of turn if you ask these people.You can´t be a senator for 5 minutes and stop an Obama nominee.

Like I said a couple days ago,I would love to see Dr.Carson enter political life but on the other hand i don´t want to see him ruined as a person because left wing animals will savage him.

Obama has been a reverse inspiration for young kids because they´re seeing government as their life solution and not themselves.Many of them have been suckered into college debt that will haunt them the rest of their lives.The average college student only studies 6 hours a week now.No problem,just agree with the professor and get a passing grade.

Juan has a button in the middle of his back. When it gets pushed he spouts the liberal talking points of the day. I have heard other commentators on Fox tease him that all of his kids turned out conservative. I wonder how much of the liberal blather Juan actually believes, or is that just his accepted way of earning a living.
I cannot stand watching/ listening to him on any of the Fox shows. He sounds whiney when his views are contested and he reminds me of a puppet for Obama. I DVR shows so I don´t have to listen to Obama or his puppets.

I do understand that we are called upon to help the less fortunate but the publicity that is given to these acts are getting ridiculous. These are acts that should, for the most part, be private and anonymous.

Obama would be "believable" in his stance on helping others if he would quit spending like there will be no tomorrow. I really don´t buy into his persona because he only goes after wealth, the glitz, the glamour, and anything that represents money.

I liked Dr. Ben Carson´s speech because he is honest and conveys what he believes. I like that he doesn´t seem to be a fake not because he helps the poor black and Latino kids. That represents reverse discrimination. We are called not to look at one´s skin color, right? Helping kids is his private decision and his giving shouldn´t be glorified.

It is as close to a concession to a conservative as Juan is likely to get. His bread is buttered by parroting liberal talking points. So, here is where the rubber meets the road:Is Juan going to share his largess with needy-but-capable (black!) kids? Fox, no doubt, pays him handsomely. Funny, though, the only charity a liberal believes in is one funded through government confiscation and redistribution.

HONNNK! Wrong answer, Juan, sorry.

He is a winner to me for living by the conservative principles I want young America, especially poor black and Latino kids, to see as the prescription for success.

Were Juan truly enamoured of self-sufficiency, hard work and God as he says he is and as he claims to want minority kids to be, he would not be supporting a President who does everything he can to squelch those very things.

Suddenly Juan has become a social conservative? Please.

Wan Williams, spouting on cue. Saw an insightful commentary on short term missions trips last week. The author had a list of guidelines, the first of which was never do for the indigent people what they can do for themselves. If American welfare were run this way, it would turn this country around.

I finally listened to Dr. Carson´s speech. I watched a successful man describe a strong, loving mother who helped him become the good man he is. I watched another man on that stage, one whose mother threw him away and who had excuses, not reasons, for his successes, listen to the good doctor. And I actually felt sorry for obama. You never get over having your mother throw you away.

I thought those libs loved speaking truth to power. So, why the controversy?

The delightful thing about Carson´s race is the insulation it provides from the charges of racism (can you imagine if a white doc had said those things?) AND the example of someone who refused to fall into the government dependency hole the Dems love so much.

So Juan loves Ben Carson as a role model, and loves public policies that make sure not many will follow his example. Hmm.

MLK said it best. One should be judged by his character, not by the color of his skin. Dr. Carson has character; Obama has none. I never listen to Juan who is always spouting off liberal talking points defending Obama no matter what he says or does. I turn him off whenever he comes on.

A black child, with a single mother who is often still a teenager, and on welfare, has the following role models - criminal gangbanger, rapper, or professional athlete.
The child doesn´t see the Dr. Carsons so they cannot be role models for him or her.
So while rapping doesn´t really take high skills, just luck, and gangbangers make lots of illegal money, and appear to lead exciting lives, and very few become professional athletes, the child is stuck.
Essentially doomed to failure in life.
And the blacks will blame that on whitey.

One of the more delightful scenes to be found on television happens whenever Juan Williams and Charles Krauthammer appear on the same talk panel. The latter is in the habit of delivering $100 observations that are thoughtful and trenchant. Then Williams counters with a nickel´s worth of that day´s liberal talking points. The look on Charles´ face as he watches Williams do his thing -- Priceless!

Liberalism, no matter the skin color of its advocates, simply does not hold up over the long haul when compared to and/or with Conservatism.

Take Juan Williams, please!

He often giveth and taketh away in the same article or speech. This one, for example. With Liberalism… Socialism… or whether under a name by any similar ism, eventually “you run out of other people’s money.” – Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher

Juan, you finally made some sense in the beginning of your piece, but switched to your liberal marxist ideal when it came to the flat tax or "tithe".
Yes the wealthy would benefit from lower taxes but the important aspect is that everyone pays something, "having skin in the game". This will enable them to feel part of the country and help self worth instead of being leeches--will take several generations to move beyond the mindset of the dem plantation slaves!

1 of my family members interviewed Juan and 1 of his children for university admittance about 5 yrs ago. I remember that faculty and admittance staff were so impressed with Juan´s involvement during that process. He was at all times gentlemanly and had many penetrating questions relating to how the faculty and staff help students learn personal and social responsibility. He really came across as the perfect parent, according to those who met him.

Believe me, I am not going soft. I found myself liking and agreeing with Juan...up to the point where he disagreed with Dr. Carson on the tithe (flat tax) and HSA´s. But he disagreed honestly and with logical arguments.

If we wish to make Dr. Carson our role model and the doctor responsible for the recovery of our country, it behooves us to act more like him...

And pray that G-d "grabs him by the collar."

Excuse me Juan, but if you see Dr. Carson´s conservative core values and you agree with them, count me confused as as to why you would support such a liberal, know nothing hack and continue to carry his water for 5 plus years. Perhaps you did explain, and I failed to catch that explanation. Frankly, after such reading your twisted comments, I could read no further.

I actually agree with Juan on this (and precious little else, from what I can tell...).

I played Dr. Carson´s speech to my 8th grade homeroom, mostly poor latino students, and had a surprising number of them watching intently. I particularly wanted them to hear about his childhood, his mother, and his realization that the misery of his childhood was all temporary. He had a brain so he could think his way out.

My students are amazingly bright, with an inbred work ethic that is constantly being sucked out of them by popular culture and liberals encouraging them into victomhood/slavery. I am SO grateful to Dr. Carson! And if Juan wants to sing his praises, I´ll take that, too!

The first sentence spoken by Mr Williams is enough for me. I don´t need the qualifiers.
If Mr Williams feels that Dr Carson is a hero to him, then it stands that the President is a total loser to him, because the two men are at opposite ends of the spectrum. I doubt that Dr Carson agrees with virtually ANY of Obama´s policies. I just saw him say he would rewrite the Health Care Law, Obama´s so-called greatest achievement. If one of the most destructive laws in our Nation´s history is your greatest achievement, it´s all downhill from there.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse.

Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

CHICAGO -- Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it´s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison. The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn´t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught. On Feb.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
