Ben Carson takes major step
toward presidential campaign

Washington Times, by John Solomon

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/2/2014 9:50:10 AM

Ben Carson, the former neurosurgeon turned conservative sensation, is taking a major step toward a 2016 presidential bid by forming a political action committee and selecting the man who would run his campaign, The Washington Times has learned. Emerging from two-days of meetings with supporters in Palm Beach, Fla., Dr. Carson told the Times on Friday morning he has selected Houston businessman Terry Giles to be his 2016 campaign chairman should he run and approved the formation of a PAC called One Nation. “Now is the time to start all of the appropriate exploration and investigation, and put down the structure that is necessary,”

Really good news. Some place to maybe send your loose change collected in a jar (a check).

Look, I think Ben Carson is a terrific person and could potentially be a fine candidate, but until and unless this country can show that it will treat ANY black candidate with complete objectivity, instead of being afraid to question or criticize them, I´m reserving the right to withhold my support.

I like his non-PC attitude, this will be interesting. Can a non-politican govern? I think it is time to find out. Nothing to lose at this point. Dr. Carson has character and principles the two qualities most important for the office, but those do not insure ability to govern.

No no no .. this is the emotional candidate for people who can´t fight their emotions.

He´s a great man, but he´ll lose so quick you´ll faint.

Scott Walker is the only man.

Please don´t do it, Doc.

There are several very good right-wing governors - - who are professional politicians and who have been through - - and won - - political wars - - who can carry our banner.

You´re an amateur who will just be a distraction - - a curiosity. If you want to get into politics - - start by running for congress or for your state legislature.

Please don´t inflict this distraction on a campaign which will be vital to our nation´s future.

Dr. Carson is a good and decent man but will be trounced by the MSM. He is a great spokesman for what is good in America and will do the most for us in that position. He is our conscience and the MSM will do everything it can to belittle him. Dr. Carson continue to speak out but, please, don´t let your ego get in the way and don´t get into the presidential campaign.

If he gets into the fray it will be interesting, and I think we could do far worse. And have.
I do have concerns in that he came out in favor of gun control a while back. That issue for me is a close to a deal breaker as there is.

It´s good to see Dr. Carson removing his hat, ready to toss it in the ring. Conservatives have a fine bench of possible candidates. Of course, all names are not equal on the scale of recognition. Gov. Walker is outstanding as a possible and any number of other possibilities in the House, and the Senate (tho not near as many) However, once again who would the RNC/MFM give us from which to choose? It will be a squishy moderate.

#1 - I am absolutely convinced that conservative White people are far more hungry for a good, strong, smart, honest leader who can bring this country back more than they are concerned with skin color. Ben Carson fits that mold, but he will have to learn to put up his dukes and fight the defecRats!

Voters obviously identify with conservative populist candidates like Carson. Palin. Cruz. Ryan. Jindal. maybe Walker. Those voices united advance an agenda that can turn this around. The donor wing of the republican party want a liberal republican content to let K street and Wall street run wild. Jeb Bush or mitt Romney would be a fine VP.

Keep the establishment retreads and their operatives out of the White house.

#13, I think so too. I can see why some people are concerned, however. Let´s face it, we have not had a plain spoken, charismatic, unambiguously conservative
Republican leader since President Reagan. If we get one, people will forget about skin color quick enough. I worry more about what the establishment Republicans will do to the good Dr. Carson before the "defecats" even get to him.

We don´t need any novelty candidates. Ben Carson is a distraction - a good man who can do much good - but, as a presidential candidate he is a distraction. He is the perfect candidate for those who lead with emotion rather than logic.

To those who say Carson has had no experience "governing" I say he has had extensive experience administrating. He was the head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins. There was far more politics in this position than many of you can imagine.

No surgeon gets to where he is being "nice". They have god like egos. Carson is Adventist and they have this "nice" persona. I think it is their relationship with God.

My loathing of Obama has nothing to do with his color. I can´t imagine I´m alone. Other than Eric Holder and his wife and Valerie Jarrett he does not surround himself with black people. (I wasn´t sure Valerie Jarrett was 100% black for the longest time.)

My point is Carson has the ability to get dirty while staying above the fray. Every meet someone who insulted you but you didn´t realize it till the next day? His organizational skills will prove to be enviable. He can work with people, delegate,while holding people accountable. People are so tired of double speak life long politicians they would vote their dog to be POTUS if they thought he/she were the best "dog" in the race.

I´m not saying I´m a rabid Carson supporter but I´m not going to be ney sayer like the majority of the above posters. If he decides to do this he has made long consultations with God. Doesn´t mean he will win but that he has something to teach.

I like the good doctor too, but those of you who think the color of his skin in any way insulates him, you must be too young to remember the Clarence Thomas hearings. Don´t be naive. That color thing only works one way.

What’s Racist, What’s Not

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 10/3/2014 4:33:21 PM     Post Reply
Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist. Things That Are Racist: 1. Talking about Ebola (Salon) - 2. Describing the Hong Kong

Turkey approves military operations
against ´IS´ in Syria and Iraq

Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

On MSNBC´s Hardball tonight, host Chris Matthews argued with Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel about President Obama saying it was "unlikely" that an Ebola case would strike the U.S. "Obama said it was unlikely. It has happened. It´s here," Matthews said. Dr. Emanuel said there is some "fear mongering" going on here, but Matthews said he was just quoting the president and stating facts. Here´s a bit of the argument that lasted nearly ten minutes: Chris Matthews : I´m just trying to follow the logic here.

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov -- but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen. Tim Knopp said, “and I think that’s ending Cover Oregon as

From the crisis in Ferguson, Mo., to the cultural impact of Robin Williams´ and Joan Rivers´ sudden deaths and all the way up to recent round-the-clock coverage of U.S. strikes on ISIS, cable news has been heavily occupied.

A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

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.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

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
