Breitbart, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 7/29/2014 8:30:58 AM

Monday on Newsmax TV´s "The Steve Malzberg Show," Dr. Ben Carson, former chief of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children´s Center, said he was one step closer to running for president. Host Steve Malzberg asked Carson if he was any closer to making a decision to run for president. Carson replied by saying he was currently "in the listening process." Carson also said it also depends on the will of the American people to go in the right direction and that he explained could hinge on the Republican Party gaining control of the U.S. Senate in this November´s midterm elections,

Anti-gun ownership, so that disqualifies him in my eyes.

He´d be better off as Surgeon General or maybe head of HHS.

Dr. Carson supports amnesty and gun control. Specifically, he believes no one who lives in a large city should be allowed to own a "semi-automatic weapon." Dumb idea. No wing shooting for city dwellers I guess. Or perhaps pumps and breaking guns only. Sheesh!

He´s not a conservative. He just wants to meddle.

Carson must demonstrate that he is able to administer a large organization effectively and consistently before he can be considered a serious candidate. The nation is now experiencing the evil of incompetent mis- and maladministration by a creature of political and moral fantasy. Not again!

Dr. Carson is, I´m sure, a fine man. He does an excellent job of articulating the opinions and hopes of many of us. That doesn´t not equate to readiness to be the CEO of the most powerful nation in the world.

I agree with the OP

"Great man for the job but I´d rather see Trey Gowdy run and kick some serious tush. "

What we have in Washtington is not a failure of political philosophy. What we have is a near complete breakdown of the rule of law. What evern happened to the money at Solindra? Or several other fed-funded solar boondoggles? What happened to the $700Billion stimulus "shovel ready" jobs. Is that money now in offshore bank accounts. How much money is stolen each year from SS disability, Food Stamps, Medicare, etc. Who are these armies of illegal aliens? Who is going to use the rule of law to protect us.

We need somebody in the White House who has personal experience putting people in jail. Trey Gowdy is one. And actually Gov Chris Christe has a much larger resume putting crooked politicians in jail. Either way, that is the job skill Number One needed in 2016. Find some more names!!!

He is a fine gentleman but he should not run for President unless his policies mirror those of most Republicans, Independents ,and also appeal to Democrats. We do not want to lose 3 in a row because the Republican will not "fight" to win. Both previous candidates wimped out because Obama was Black.
He had more negatives than any President in past decades yest still won. Now everyone can see what we have done.

Carson is indeed a "good man", but also not my first choice. I don´t think his "quiet manner" is what the times call for. We need a bare knuckles warrior at this point. Gowdy and Cruz are on my list. Giuliani, although not as conservative as the other two, also makes it due to his ability to "tell it like it is" - New York style - and to get things done in a no nonsense manner.

We need to break the mentality that everyone we like should run for POTUS. We all have different roles to play in this team effort. My favorite example is Ben Franklin: never POTUS, but still an important, influential, and revered Founder. Got his picture on the C-note. As Reagan would say: "Not bad at all".

I would vote for him in a heartbeat. Have you read "America the Beautiful" by Ben and Candy Carson? I would encourage you to read it.

As a matter of fact, I will vote for any Republican. Not voting is a vote for the other candidate. The Democrats win when nobody shows up on the other side.

Carson is not going to run. He would be laughed off the stage. The Left (and Right for that matter) would never let a man of his statue take the national scene. If they have nothing to ´get´ him on then they´ll make it up. Add to that the rigging of elections an it´ll be a contest between two political hacks as always.

Military to allow undocumented
immigrants to serve
USA Today, by Andrew Tilghman    Original Article
Posted By: M2- 9/26/2014 8:32:33 AM     Post Reply
A small number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. will have an opportunity to join the military for the first time in decades under a new Department of Defense policy unveiled Thursday. The new rules will expand an existing program allowing recruiters to target foreign nationals with high-demand skills, mostly rare foreign language expertise or specialized health care training. For the first time, the program — known as Military Accessions in the National Interest, or MAVNI — will be open to immigrants without a proper visa if they came to the U.S. with their parents before age 16.

These days I live in a state of almost continual amazement, bedazzled by the things progressives believe. Earlier this week the New York Times had to print a correction which is probably the number one all time winner in a long line of their recent corrections: “Correction: September 8, 2014 An earlier version of a summary that appeared with this article misstated the former title of Dick Cheney. He was vice president, not president.” Seriously, someone was hired to and does write for the major progressive publication in America who thought that Dick Cheney had been our president.

A new poll from Gallup has found that Republican voters think the immigration woe facing America is the most important issue in the country. Of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters, the Gallup poll found that 22 percent believe immigration is the “most important problem” in America. Republicans rank the issue as more important than dysfunctional government, the economy, unemployment and healthcare—for which 20 percent, 17 percent, 12 percent, and 9 percent, respectively, said it was the most important.

Amel Shimoun Nona, the Chaldean Catholic archbishop of Mosul, Iraq, who is now living in exile, warned that his diocese is now run by radical Muslims and that “liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here,” adding that “Islam does not say that all men are equal,” and if Westerners “do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed into your home.” The Chaldean Catholic Church is an Eastern Rite church, under the authority of Pope Francis.

White House “Did Not Know” National
Guard Was Being Deployed In Ferguson

Posted By: M2- 8/18/2014 11:11:20 AM     Post Reply
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon called the National Guard to Ferguson late Sunday without letting the White House know first. “Folks didn’t know,” an administration official told BuzzFeed Monday. “The White House did not know they were sending it in.” Nixon gave “no heads up,” the official said. President Obama is back at the White House today on a pre-scheduled break from his August vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. He’s scheduled to be briefed by Attorney General Eric Holder on the situation in Ferguson early this afternoon. Holder and the administration have been critical of the militarized response to protests in Ferguson.

A new report released by New Jersey authorities shows that taxpayers are being socked with a $6.5 million legal bill in part for Gov. Chris Christie´s (R) defense over allegations of political corruption in what came to be known as the "Bridgegate" probe. The New Jersey state attorney general released the documents on Friday, revealing the fees from Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, the firm Gov. Christie retained for his defense against charges of political corruption for the temporary shutting down of the George Washington Bridge near Fort Lee, New Jersey in September of 2013.

Hamas reportedly rejected a comprehensive, 11-clause long term ceasefire proposal on Saturday. Egypt has warned that this proposal will be its final effort to secure a lasting end to the Israel-Gaza conflict. According to details leaked by Egyptian newspaper al-Shorouk, the 11-clause proposal contained several key concessions to the Palestinian delegation, including the opening of border crossings between Israel and Gaza, the elimination of the so-called "buffer zones" along the Israel-Gaza border, the extension of the fishing zone to 12 miles off the Gazan coast, and the assistance of Israel and the Palestinian Authority in rebuilding the

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is too strong. PLO boss Mahmoud Abbas is too weak. That’s why we can’t get a peaceful settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict, says President Obama in an interview with the ever-serious Tom Friedman of the New York Times. The president seems to be confusing Mideast politics with Goldilocks. The peace porridge is too hot (Netanyahu). It’s too cold (Mahmoud Abbas). But with Mr. Obama’s Goldilocks policy, it’s just right. Actually, his Mideast isn’t just right. It’s mostly wrong. Mr. Obama’s thinking about the Mideast is fully on display in this disturbing interview. If we wonder why

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
