Dr. Carson: Media Bullies ´Suppress
Freedom of Speech,´ ´Beat On Anyone
Who Doesn´t Toe the Line´

NewsBusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/9/2013 9:42:37 PM

Dr. Benjamin Carson made some more controversial statements Saturday. Appearing on Fox News´s America´s News Headquarters, Carson said, "The bullies are the people, especially the media who like to just beat on anybody who doesn´t toe the line...they suppress freedom of speech" (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary): UMA PEMMARAJU, HOST: Why do you think your message is resonating with so many people? DR. BENJAMIN CARSON: Because I think there are a lot of people who have been bludgeoned into silence who really feel very strongly

Comments:
Amen to that Dr. Carson! It is extremely refreshing to see someone like him not feel threatened by the thugs in the 0bama regime.

So weird that Uma has this very odd look on her face. The man is talking straight truth. He won´t read anyone else´s script.

Uma looks like she is uttering "Say what ?"

When our generation goes, who will remember how great this nation was ?

Neurosurgeons, while brilliant, are rarely great communicators. Dr. Ben Carson is brilliant and an excellent communicator and unafraid. Triple threat! Thank you, Dr. Carson.

Dr. Carlson lost me on his gun ownership statement. Regardless of where you live anyone has a right to own an AR-15 or any legal gun. Aside from that stay after the liberal media....good show.

I love how people standing up for Constitutional rights are now considered controversial but you can allow illegals to storm the border before amnesty or let them out of jail and that´s not controversial at all.

I suspect Dr. Carson will be the big hit at CPAC this year and I love it. Fresh face, fresh ideas and an excellent, inspiring speaker. Cruz, Rubio, Paul will be very good, but I predict Carson will get the ovations.

I save little snippets of paper with things I think are important on them. I found this from a Lucianne thread/poster (says Threads2) of unknown date when I was cleaning out recently: "Google for "Ben Carson glyconutrients cancer" to read another alternative. Ben Carson is perhaps the world´s most respected pediatric neurosurgeon and he beat cancer using ´alternative´ help too."

#4, Dr. Carson did not question anybody´s right to own a gun. His exact statement was:

I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it.

He was expressing his opinion - which I don´t happen to agree with - but he is entitled to.

The whole ´Dr. Carson does not support the second amendment ´ brouhaha is an attempt by those who see him as a potential threat to the Republican establishment to marginalize him. Since they can´t make reasonable claims against his intelligence or his speaking ability, they misconstrue his words, hoping that soon, everyone will believe that Dr. Carson does not support gun owners rights in the same way many believe that Sarah Palin claimed she could see Russia from her house.

Dr. Carson has not even taken his hat off yet, but - in case he intends to - we should not allow the arena to be poisoned before he even arrives.

Conservative people who happen to be black are not normal, much less acceptable, in the eyes of most “PROgressives,” if past behavior is any indication. They’re viewed as indignant, ungrateful, disloyal anomalies if they don’t automatically toe the “PROgressive” line. Someone should inform them that they’re living in the year 2013. Isn’t it about time “PROgressives” be renamed “REgressives?” No! Actually, it’s well PAST time!

Interesting that the msm bullies and Obie´s cyber-warriors haven´t figured out how to freeze Dr. Carson yet. Could be the msm figures his resonating with folks will pass over and he drops out of site. On the other hand, Dr. Carson´s promoting civility is certainly a breath of fresh air.

#12 - I´ve been calling them ´pro-regressives´ here and elsewhere for quite some time now, thankyouverymuch.

As for Dr. Carson, my instincts are telling me to slow down a bit with him. He is, on the surface, everything on the checklist. But I don´t know that he´s been totally vetted on everything you or I care about. I haven´t done that research, and I won´t until he appears to be entering the scene on a candidate-basis. To me, right now, he is an inspiring speaker. And I applaud him for that, and would love to see him become a true threat for the Left.

But let´s slow down on him just a bit....? We also don´t want him over-exposed and becoming ubiquitous to the point we can´t stand him. ´Oh geez, there he is, again.´

We have one of those in our face already.

I don´t understand why you don´t understand what he said about gun ownership #11. Saying people in certain areas of the country shouldn´t have one because a so-called crazy person might get it is a form of gun control. It may not be outright banning, but unfortunately it is a first step on the slippery slope.

I say this even though I really like this guy and I am glad he is going to be at CPAC. I am not in favor of poisoning the arena, but I want to go into this with no surprises and eyes wide open. No more hiding our heads in the sand in regards to candidates.

He didn´t say they shouldn´t have them, #16; he said he would rather they didn´t. I would rather people home schooled their kids. I would rather my neighbors didn´t have parties in their back yard in the evenings because they tend to get a little loud. That doesn´t mean I think anything should be done about these things other than to express my opinion. That is all Dr. Carson did.

I absolutely was not accusing you of poisoning the arena. That is the purview of those with a vested interest in shutting down any possibility of conservatives influencing the republican party. It is the tactic that was used against Sarah Palin. I agree with you and #14, we should proceed cautiously. However, we will not be able to proceed if the progressives - on either side of the aisle - derail Dr. Carson before we are ready to make a decision.

Perhaps Dr. Carson was thinking of the mother of the crazy son who committed the Newtown killings ? She did not use common sense since she was aware of her son´s disturbances and yet in denial as she tried to teach him on the gun range. I would rather that she had not had guns in the home also or else make sure they were locked up securely. The same for the Gifford killer. His parents were aware!

I´m not so sure this is a slippery slope. The terms ´ a lot of people ´ and ´crazy person´ immediately put me in mind of the people who support Obama and live in places like the community that he organized.

I´m not of the mind set to run somebody for President because they spoke true words to the CIC at a prayer breakfast.
Dr. Carson is a smart man but I´m not that desparate for leadership. Rand Paul impressed me more with his filibuster and Constitutial stance.

Way to go Dr. Carson. Slightly off topic. We Conservatives are beginning to stir and the 2014 campaign will be pivotal. First, we must aim to replace the RINOs in our party by outflanking them. Dr. Carson and Rand Paul blindsided everyone by sheer audacity. The press is being forced to report and are two steps behind.

I´ve said here that Conservatives should learn from Rush and Sarah and their mastery of playing the press. The press think they are playing them when it´s the opposite. Remember them following Sarah around like puppies when she was on her road trip? That is what it will take.

We can also learn from Andrew Breitbart...

Russian botanist Michurin, once said: we can´t rely on the nature´s mercy, we have to reap the fruits ourselves (paraphrasing, of course).
We can´t rely on the mercy of commie/fascist media! We need our own conservative MAINstream media. And the best and the most charismatic conservatives need to ask for it. They need to campaign amongst conservative investors to invest in creation of NEW mainstream media. Personally, I don´t think it will be very hard: we are ready, plenty of journalists are ready... It could be kind of avalanche process.

The way I hear it, Dr. Carson thinks that those who live in cities should not be allowed to own semi automatic weapons. Might want to check that out. You might want to see if that´s true before you get on this guy´s bandwagon. A view like that is definitely anti-second amendment.

From the article: "Dr. Benjamin Carson made some more controversial statements Saturday."......more?.....controversial?....to who? Why is it considered "controversial" to talk back to the ass-press enemedia?

If tht´s truly the case, then every L-Dotter must be considered "controversial" by this Sheppard guy...hmmm, any relation to Sheppard Smith?

Bottom Line: Dr. Ben speaks TRUTH to POWER....(remember that?) and the media bullies and leftist Marxist bullies dont like it when someone on our side co-opts their strategies and says and does things that they feel only are allowed to be said by THEM, which of course we all know dearly, makes them HYPOCRITES!!! Liars and hypocrites, thats what makes up the media and the Marxist lefty party....and we all KNOW it! Thanks for telling it like it is, Dr. Ben!

For those questioning Dr Carson´s comment in this interview about guns, please bear in mind that he is a neurosurgeon first. They are responsible in trauma calls for the often futile attempt to put a mangled brain and spine together again. They´re front line. I say this as a nurse who worked N/S and Neuro for years previously.

They see the results of not just vehicular and many other traumas, but gun trauma - right out of the gate. And most of you never hear or see the results of the stories of what led to what - many would not be able sleep if they knew the constant real-life drama coming in an ED´s doors. I´m going to give him a bit of break on that end alone because I´ve seen too much of it myself. Otherwise, I do NOT think he stands IN ANY WAY with any anti-gunners like crazy Feinstein, who apparently never heard of shell-shock in WWI and II, as it was termed. He´s tempered by his professional exposure and it was unfiltered.

The remedy for a crazy person with a gun is a sane person with a gun. The remedy for a gang of bad guys with semi-auto (or any other type of) firearms is a team of good guys with the same (or better) weapons.

Sooner or later they´ll get the message.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:02:50 PM     Post Reply
Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

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

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

The Terrifying Implications of
the IRS Abuse-DOJ Connection

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Colo. eminent domain case

Fox News, by Faith Mangan    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:09:48 PM     Post Reply
Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Salon: ABC News ´Bending Over

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

How is the “robust martial arts culture” of wrestling a better “scene” for Tamerlan’s radicalism instead of radical websites or mosques?

President Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to prod Republicans to bring up immigration reform, but the conversation apparently did not go well. Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

Megyn Kelly and the
Sandberg Head Shaker

47 replie(s)
American Thinker, by Richard F. Miniter    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/15/2014 9:16:05 AM     Post Reply
Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

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

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

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

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

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

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

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.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

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
