Carson: No sneak peek for Obama
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Molly K. Hooper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/28/2013 1:08:44 PM

The White House repeatedly asked Ben Carson for his speech before the rising Republican star criticized President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month. Carson, a prominent neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins University, declined to do so, noting that he doesn’t put his speeches down on paper beforehand. “I told them that I don’t have an advance copy because I don’t write out my speeches and I don’t use teleprompters …they asked more than once ...I gave them the [Biblical] texts around which the remarks would be framed ...

Comments:
So the regime wanted to see his speech beforehand. Good for Dr. Carson for not being intimidated by these losers.

WH rats probably sensed Dr. Carson was a critic of the regime. Therefore, they wanted to vet his speech. As OP said, good for Dr. Carson for giving nothing to obama´s agents.

Dr Carson knew, just like all of us know, that had he provided the text of that speech to the WH, he would have been "uninvited" to the prayer breakfast.

Again, I would remind you people of the hubris surrounding Nixon´s second term. This current, constitutionally ineligible president is worst than nixon´s administration.
I just have to hope that it catches up with them.

I dare say that there aren´t many people who would stare down the POTUS because Lord knows they will use the IRS to intimidate and try to destroy anyone who goes against the One.

And yet, the media turns a blind eye.

Sneak peaks are used by the ObieO crowd to figure out how to bash you as you utter the last syllable of your speech.

Carson is smart to NOT give them that opportunity...and ObieO had to fake being asleep so as to not be upstaged by a ´successful´ NON LIB Black Man!

I really do not have any information on Dr. Carson except what I heard when I watched his speech at the prayer breakfast. That being said, My gut tells me that there is nothing that can be used against the good doctor because he probably bends over backwards to be honest in everything he does. Honest people are hard to mess with, especially when they are brain surgeons.

The images included below shed light on the dangers U.S. Border Patrol agents are facing from rock throwers along the U.S./Mexico border. The Border Patrol has come under an unprecedented level of fire from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and their allies in both government and media for the use of deadly force in response to some rock attacks from individuals and groups illegally entering the U.S. from Mexico.

A college in Massachusetts decided to throw a $56,000 scholarship at Rachel Canning, the 18-year-old cheerleader who infamously sued her parents for tuition and child support, and lost real bad. (Personal disclosure: I was raised a Buddhist, but now I’m losing faith in my religion’s fundamental tenet of karma.) The honors student announced on her Facebook page that she would attend Western New England University in Springfield, MA starting in August. The school confirmed her scholarship to the New York Post, adding that the scholarship was based on academic merit, and would be spread out over her four-year attendance. (Quick note: tuition

CNN Anchor: SCOTUS Decision

After the Supreme Court ruled today to strike down aggregate limits on an individual’s federal campaign contributions, CNN anchor Carol Costello lamented that now “money is people too.” Legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin joined Costello on-air to explain for viewers the Wednesday ruling. This case expands the previous ruling from 2010´s Citizens United v. FEC to now say that, in his words, “individuals have a First Amendment right to give as many different political campaigns as they want the maximum amount of money. There used to be an overall limit of how much money you could give to individuals, to individual

WASHINGTON – Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said the future of the Republican Party depends on what the Republicans do to expand its appeal among Hispanic voters and show them that the GOP is not “just the party of deportation.” “I’ve been saying over and over that the Republican Party cannot win until it’s more diverse, until it looks like the rest of America,” he said.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) had a concise reaction to a Supreme Court ruling today that voided legal limits on contributions by individual donors to political campaigns: “What world are the five conservative Supreme Court justices living in?” “Freedom of speech, in my view, does not mean the freedom to buy the United States government,” Sanders said. “To equate the ability of billionaires to buy elections with ‘freedom of speech’ is totally absurd. The Supreme Court is paving the way toward an oligarchic form of society in which a handful of billionaires like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson will control

The Environmental Protection Agency has been conducting dangerous experiments on humans over the past few years in order to justify more onerous clean air regulations. The agency conducted tests on people with health issues and the elderly, exposing them to high levels of potentially lethal pollutants, without disclosing the risks of cancer and death, according to a newly released government report. These experiments exposed people, including those with asthma and heart problems, to dangerously high levels of toxic pollutants, including diesel fumes, reads a EPA inspector general report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

George Washington and the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1787. “It is really so heart warming for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to healthcare,” she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico. “There are those critics, bumps in the road, but they’ve only been turbulence.

Talk about biting the bullet! Or, getting the biggest bang for your buck. During a December 2013 operation in Afghanistan, a British sniper killed six Taliban fighters with a single bullet. British and Afghan forces were attacked by 15-20 Taliban fighters during a mission in southern Afghanistan. One of the men was wearing an explosive vest. The unnamed, 20-year-old sharpshooter took a single shot from 930 yards which struck the trigger of the vest and exploded, killing an additional five terrorists. Lt Col Richard Slack, commanding officer of 9/12 Royal Lancers, detailed the sniper´s encounter: "The guy was wearing a vest. He was identified

President Obama on Tuesday hailed the enrollment of more than 7 million people in insurance under his signature health law as “a big step forward” that will give Americans peace of mind and change the landscape of health care for years to come. He also rebuked his Republican foes of his law for standing in the way and spreading fear about this overhaul, quipping that “Armageddon has not arrived” and that they are holding back the United States from joining other advanced countries around the world in providing health coverage. “The debate over repealing this law is over.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden 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. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
