The Left is Circling
the Wagons against
Dr. Ben Carson

American Thinker, by Phillip Cowan

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/23/2013 8:40:32 AM

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.

The left are not good at governing, but extremely talented at demonizing, castrating and lying about anyone who disagrees with them whom they perceive as a threat to their power.

Give ´em hell, Dr. Carson. You may just be the ´brick wall´ they will head-butt.

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.

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?

That didn´t take long. They must have gotten word that conservative America wants Dr. Carson to run for office or something.

If Carson were not a threat to the Left, there would be no reason to "circle the wagons".

It is to wonder...

#10 You are right on!

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!

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.

On the Sean Hannity show last week, Sean brought up the fact that the Left will seek to discredit him.

Dr. Carson calmly said he has no skeletons in his closet.

I think perhaps the same quiet determination that this man displayed in his successful quest to become a neurosurgeon will serve Dr. Carson well, whatever he chooses to do.

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.

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American.

The Beat Goes On:
Opposing Obama Is Racist

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Justice Stevens thinks he knows
how to ´fix´ the Second Amendment

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

Two of the biggest and best-connected lobbyists in Washington, DC are divorcing each other, and in the process they are placing on the public record the amazing wealth that can be generated by helping rent-seeking powerful interests shape the laws and regulations that separate Americans into winners and losers as the state confiscates a fifth of our GDP and regulates much of the rest. Matthew Continetti chronicles the divorce of Tony and Heather Podesta in the Free Beacon, and it is arresting reading.

One of the guidelines of liberal propaganda is that if you are going to lie, lie big. Global warming, Obamacare, Romney’s a heartless guy. It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

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

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

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

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

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

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.

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K
