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.
I guess we´ll see.

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.

A television news anchorman fighting brain cancer in Illinois told viewers he has only four to six months to live, but he hopes to work as long as he can. During a newscast on Thursday, Dave Benton told viewers of WCIA-TV in Champaign that doctors recently told him that his brain tumor is too large for surgery or radiation. The 51-year-old says he´ll try a new treatment to slow the tumor´s growth, but that his goal is to add ´a few more days and make them the best they can be.´ Benton is a born-again Christian and said on-air that he believes he's in God's hands and knows that he will take care of the days ahead.

On the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, President Obama used the occasion last week to remind Americans that “our combat mission in Afghanistan will come to an end” in three months. But the cost to U.S. taxpayers for reconstruction in Afghanistan will continue. The U.S. has spent $104 billion to rebuild Afghanistan’s security forces, infrastructure, economy, and health care and education sectors. America is spending more on the effort this year alone than it’s spending on foreign assistance for Israel, Iraq, Egypt and Pakistan combined, said John Sopko, special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction.

Indianola, IA - Hillary Clinton all but kicked off her 2016 White House bid Sunday before a festive crowd of 6,000 in this pivotal state, presenting herself as a child and champion of the still-struggling middle class. Already dogged by an image as an out-of-touch, wealthy insider, her appearance at a field 20 miles outside Des Moines was an effort to reposition her for the coming campaign. (Snip) The Iowa presidential caucuses, traditionally the nation’s first, are at least 16 months away. Activists still have vivid memories of how Clinton faltered last time — she finished third in the 2008 caucus behind Barack Obama and John Edwards

Fox News Sunday’s John Roberts asked White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough about the Obama administration’s handling of the kidnapping of freelance American journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley, alluding to comments by the Sotloff and Foley families that the White House told them “not to dare” ransom their son from ISIS of face prosecution. “Why would the White House say something like that to them?” Roberts asked. “In terms of what was communicated to the families, in the midst of many, many meetings over the course of these very difficult circumstance, we made clear what the law is,”

Washington - While the Islamic State group is getting the most attention now, another band of extremists in Syria — a mix of hardened jihadis from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Europe — poses a more direct and imminent threat to the United States, working with Yemeni bomb-makers to target U.S. aviation, American officials say.

It saddens me that 20 years after my sister Nicole’s murder, we are still seeing the same crimes, just different names, over and over again. The Ray Rice case reflects our misunderstanding of what domestic violence is, and the Oscar Pistorius case reminds me so much of what happened to Nicole: victims defending their partners, and batterers blaming the victim. What is most chilling to me about what I have seen in the coverage of Ray Rice is that he has not atoned for his actions; he seems more concerned with how he is now viewed. And it’s Janay Palmer who is apologizing for her part of being knocked out cold.

The image I have of “Girls” star Lena Dunham, judging by last season’s episodes of the HBO series, is that of a girl riding a bicycle in the Hamptons in a two-piece bathing suit that is two sizes too small. Exposing her body in all of its glory is part of the Dunham hard-sell — you either buy into her “freedom at any cost” philosophy, or you don’t. How curious, then, that the New York Times, in choosing Dunham for the cover of its Culture Issue, on sale this Sunday, decided to photograph her as a piece of neoclassical art. The photographer, Victoria Diehl, modeled the Dunham portrait on a bust of Pauline Bonaparte as Venus Victrix

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

And she is reviewing who’s who in the Democratic Party in Iowa, a crucial early voting state in the presidential cycle.

But inside the Clinton operation, the groundwork is already quietly being laid for a candidacy. On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton will appear at the 37th annual Iowa steak fry hosted by Senator Tom Harkin;

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.
