Carson Refuses To Live
On Left´s Racist Plantation

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 7/25/2013 5:55:39 AM

Audacity: Renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson eloquently refuses to stay on liberalism´s black plantation. So, naturally, the left seeks his destruction. George Zimmerman´s prosecutors´ star witness, Rachel Jeantel — whose contentious, garbled testimony backfired badly — told CNN´s Piers Morgan of the jury that heard her, "They old. That´s old-school people. We in a new school, our generation." As she experiences her 15 minutes of fame, Jeantel would no doubt lump Benjamin Carson in with the "old-school people." But these two black Americans represent the different paths available to everyone in a free country, regardless of ethnicity.

Comments:
Can we imagine two more widely divergent paths?

As Clarence Thomas says later in this article, his grandfather taught him that he would have to learn how to talk properly if I didn´t want to be thought "inferior."

Nobody´s going to tell Rachel Jeantel that, are they!

The old formula still works:

If you expect equality, you have to BE equal.

Hold the equal attitudes of the successful.

Hold the equal perseverance of the successful.

Hold the equal education of the successful.

Hold the equal self restraint of the successful.

Or, you can model yourself after failures in life and you will be equal to them.

When you have a successful black person,who got that way through conventional means,it´s a huge embarrassment for the victimized black left. Their narrative is it´s impossible for a black person to make it because of the institutional bias by the oppressive white majority. They look at these people as escapees from a zoo that need to be captured and put out of sight.Condi Rice is another the black left won´t go near with a 10 ft.pole.

To me,white liberals are much bigger sellouts to their race than a handful of black conservatives.

Wonderful article about Dr. Carson. We all will be watching him.

Poor Rachel. It´s hard to tell if she has the smallest smidgen of intelligence in that tiny brain of hers. It is not her speech impediment holding her back; it is her own self-satisfied ignorance of the world and all it holds for someone who will take the gifts offered her.

The only glimmer of hope is she is 19? 20? whatever, but she doesn´t have a couple of children...yet...to weigh her down further.

The left is glorifying Rachel Jeantel´s ignorance precisely because she fits the mold. She could hardly be classified as a ´liberal´. She isn´t smart enough to have any actual political opinions and Piers Morgan wouldn´t be caught dead having a cup of coffee with her in public. But if she votes at all she can be counted on to vote for the Entitlement Party.

I think Jeantel´s benefactor is going to be pretty disappointed with the results of the tutoring. She is not capable of high school work, much less college.

When Dr. Carson spoke the truth to the president at the breakfast, his words were diplomatic and polite. This is not something liberals do. They tend to be rude, crude and untruthful.

If Detroit´s leaders had been more like Dr. Carson, it probably wouldn´t be bankrupt today.

And Clarance Thomas´ grandfather was correct:"he would have to learn how to talk properly if I didn´t want to be thought "inferior." It is true for white people as well as non-whites.

We no longer teach students how to be ladies and gentlemen, unless students are lucky enough to attend a private school of some kind. America doesn´t have much time left before it descends into total incivility.

Black people who automatically distance themselves from positive black role models are denying themselves the often singular chance to take advantage of a once in a lifetime golden opportunity. Punishing oneself and not even knowing it. Tragic!

#3 Rachel Jeantel is perfectly satisfied with her life and education what ever that is.
Ms. Jeantel doesn´t know the level of ignorance she possess nor does she care. She get´s her nails done, her hair and operates a communication device. She had Trayvon as a friend who didn´t judge her and she´s happy with life. There is nothing political about her she probably lives and functions in a small world.
Dr. Carson on the other hand has the left on notice and will be destroyed by all means.

#3, 12 and 17 all put me in mind of an experience I had in Pittsburgh in the 1980s. I lived in the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh, a very poor, mostly black section of town, while in graduate school at Pitt. I´m from a lower middle class, single mom background myself, but managed to make it through a Ph.D. and teach at the college level a number of years before retiring. Walking the streets of East Liberty one day, it just struck me how much bigger my world was than the limited one others in the community seemed to be living. Lots of "self-satisfied ignorance" in that community. And what was sad, I realized, was they had no idea of just how big the world could be. I thank my education and the doors it opened every day. Truly wish the black community and the Jeantel´s of the world didn´t disparage education as they seem to do. Mustn´t "act white," after all.

How one speaks has always defined what class one is. Watch "My Fair Lady", they are all white Brits; she wants to better herself and move up in the world by improving her speech. By learning a more refined way of speaking and some manners to boot, Liza ends up at a royal function dancing with the prince, convincing everyone she is a princess instead of a "gutter snip".
People can be whatever they want, especially in this country, so long as they are willing to understand where they are today and where they want to be tomorrow. And no one should be looked down upon for trying to improve themselves, that is just jealous ignorance.

Bill Maher called Dr. Carson "a drooling idiot?" The treatment of Clarence Thomas by the Democrat party during his confirmation hearings started me on the path of becoming a Republican. I only hope that others with open minds and hearts, who listen to this creep Maher, will wonder and start to think about the treatment of this enormously accomplished man, Dr. Carson. The Left is so corrupt, hypocritical, unprincipled and such liars, that my stomach turns whenever I read something like this moron´s remarks. I hope one day he or his family need to have their brain (if one exists in his case) worked on, and only the "drooling idiot" is the guy that can save him or his family. Wouldn´t that make a great movie?

Maher is a racist, pure and simple, and an excellent example of the corruption and downfall of this once great nation.

Number 19 you hit the nail on the head. I too grew up in a black single mom household with 3 other brothers (I´m the second oldest having been born in the late sixties) My mother taught us that to get anywhere in this life you have to conduct yourself as a gentleman. You must always look people in the eye and speak properly and clearly. Sadly while in school up until I graduated I was teased for "talking like a white boy" by other Black kids. There was alot of Rachel Jeantel´s and Trayvon Martins with their "self-satified ignorance of the world". Needless to say I became a very productive member of my community because I always kept my mother´s lessons to heart. That is why the left, especially the Black left can not stand Black Conservatives. We are a visible reminder to these charlatans that their way of doing things was and continues to be wrong. I just thank God for good men and women like Dr Carson, Allen West, Justice Thomas, Thomas Sowell, Deneen Borelli, Star Parker and Angela McGlowan. These conservative fighers keep on making sure that the Obamanations antics always see the light of day.

In all the media flurry over Rachel, her own narrative, what she admitted about herself, has been lost. She has had a serious problem with alcohol. A heavy drinker. Evidence was also turned up that she and Trayvon had the same drug habit and shared the same dealer.

Maybe all this pandering and fussing around, the public shower of advantages and gifts, will turn her around. But I am pessimistic. Because when all the applause dies on and Piers and the rest move on, she´ll be left with Rachel.

Content of character is what really counts. The choices we personally make as individuals shape each life and this country.

Contrarily, BIG Government´s, ´plantation,´ socialistic mandates, meddling dictates & excessive regulations but steal our inherent Right to be free & responsible citizens regarding making our own choices.

At the risk of getting too tangential, I would venture to suggest that academic discipline, mental horsepower and a healthy respect for both the logical world and the spiritual world can mitigate a good deal of the damage which is often attributed to substance abuse. From Sigmund Freud to Walt Disney to any number of others it can be shown that a slovenly approach to life may be more damaging than a dalliance with conscientiousness altering substances.

Like sky-diving or rock climbing or a thousand other activities it may be very dangerous but still none of the goober-stazi´s damnbidness.

And now Drudge is featuring a story, to be on t.v. tonight, from one of the Zimerman jurors saying she thought Z. was a killer but they couldn´t prove it. I hope this woman realizes that in pandering to the Black community she will absolutely feel the ire of all of the rest of us who saw that there was no proof of this at all. There is an e-mail cuculating that is going into all of baby Trayvon´s bad ass stuff, including what you do with skittles, that soda (not tea) and Robitusson....all documented, and it isn´t good. That combo causes aggression, and there was liver damage from its use found during the autopsy.

What a man! Doctor Carson has impressed me more with each sentence he has uttered. He makes his points, but always with dignity and quiet confidence. I hope he considers politics as he would be a godsend for this country. To be so accomplished, renowned, celebrated and admired, his demeanor is strikingly low key and humble.

I´ve had it with the arrogance, pomposity, strutting and hate-filled, anti-American rhetoric of Obama and his ilk. What a pleasure and privilege it would be to have a quiet man such as Ben Carson, who is filled with wisdom and grace, serving and leading us from the White House.

One of few things I wholeheartedly believe: All people are scum, except for you and me!
This is the quote from 1957 French movie PORTE DES LILAS.
What I am trying to convey is that the scum like Jesse, sharpton, obozo and almost all members of black caucus in Congress, love the situation where black people hate whites, smart blacks, and this hatred is what keeps them (Jesse, sharpton, obozo...) in control not only of blacks but of whole country.

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so.

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration
