The wonderful liberal maxim of "speaking truth to power" apparently only applies when Republicans are in power.

Great men like Dr. Carson are not intimidated - He has a gentle dignity sorely missing in all the current administration.

I imagine similar speaker advice is given prior to this sort of non-political event by any president´s staff. No one is under any obligation to follow it.

The National Prayer Breakfast is hosted by members of Congress. It is organized by The Fellowship Foundation. The President is a participant. It is not about him and he is not in charge. This president, however, seems to have a problem with that concept.

A good bull crapper is not offended when you call him "A good Bull crapper" ,so why would Obama be offended when you call him a "Great Bull crapper"?????

WH Told Me ´Not To Offend The President´

Start the speech with that and then look at obama and ask why anyone would state that.

Are you a man obama? Are you so insecure you cannot be criticized and if you are then you should not be here let alone president of the United States.

I doubt very seriously if this sort of question is SOP by a White House for THIS event. Only an anti-Christian minded Democrat WH would be concerned about Dr. Carson. Thanks Dr. Carson for telling all!

My thoughts exactly as per No 11 - I´d say it right out loud in front of a BIG audience, "So what - are you a man or a mouse? WORDS wound your delicate little feelings?" I think we just found his Achilles heal - RIDICULE him and often. He obviously can´t stand criticism. That is how to keep him off balance!

I saw the interview on Hannity last evening.

While it is likely true that no one is "under obligation" to follow advice from the WH for these kinds of events, this WH is like no other, and 0bama is surely peeved with Dr. Carson´s comments. However, I seriously doubt that the WH or anyone else would be able to ruffle the doctor´s feathers. Dr. Carson IS a brain surgeon, after all. He is an extremely accomplished, intelligent, man; 0bama is not. Dr. Carson has spent his career saving lives; 0bama is a destroyer of everything decent and good. Dr. Carson has integrity; 0bama is a sociopathic liar.

I surmise that the Left doesn´t quite know what to do with Dr. Carson. But I would wager that even 0bama knows it would be foolish to publicly snipe at him.

Dr. Carson is a rare man in today´s world.
He does not have a squishy middle (take note Republicans).
He KNOWS what is right and what is wrong and calls them as he sees them. He can do this because he knows God is on his side.

Dr. Ben Carson is not only courageous about speaking up about the White House´s attempt to intimidate him, he also apparently learned from Bob Woodward´s experience not to use the word ´´threaten.´´

Instead, he used words like ´´inform´´ and ´´instruct,´´ which the White House can´t get publicly angry about without appearing even more paranoid than Nixon at his worst, but which imply the same kind of bullying.

So it´s now clear that the White House must have a special detachment dedicated to threatening, warning, and instructing those who might say uncomfortable things about Obama.

Which means that the group must include a surveillance capability to find ferret out possible targets for threats and intimidation like Dr. Carson, and then to follow up to see if the threats were heeded.

It´s clear that if even a previously non-political neurosurgeon attracted the group´s attention, many others have also received their treatment, so the fact that few are joining Dr. Carson and Bob Woodward in solidarity speaks volumes about the reign of terror that the Obama White House has visited upon Washington.

#23, I did not think that Dr Carson needed to "call out" the person who tried to intimidate" him. The president knows who failed to convey the message to Dr Carson. I am sure that the WH staff chastised the failed operative.

I´m curious as to what would happen if a speaker submitted his remarks, then when he came up to the podium, told a different speech. Would the WH stop the speech?

These people are power mad, and I hope everyone else notices it too before any more damage is done.

#23´s comment makes no sense to me. It seems to be a clumsy attempt to undermine the credibility of Dr. Carson. Such attempts are to be expected. They will need to be more sophisticated than this.

"Either you go all the way, or you stay home?"

Why? Who says so?

Why does it matter who reminded Dr. Carson not to offend the president? Who cares? As others have noted, such pro forma advice to speakers is common. It is significant that Dr. Carson chose to "transgress the boundaries"(a favorite phrase of Leftists to describe doing something they want to do, something that in their case usually involves sex). The name of the person who reminded him not to do so is of no consequence.

The routine nightly lampooning of GOP Presidents and accomplished conservative pols has been major schtick for late night hosts and, ´comedians,´ since the Pres. Reagan years. It was usually tacky & tasteless but never stopped.

However, with the touchy & humorless President we now have, even Jay Leno is leaving, and who can blame him. 0bama has no tolerance for ANY opposition, no matter where it comes from. ...He apparently doesn´t even like the idea of the Constitution´s checks & balances which are provided for each of our three EQUAL Branches of Government. And then there is that freedom of the press problem. mmm mmm mmm

I was recently reminded that the three branches of government are NOT equal. The legislative branch is the most powerful and the judicial the least powerful with the executive in the middle. It was designed this way because the founders wanted the branch closest to the people to hold the most power (of the people, by the people) and seriously mistrusted the judicial branch.

I am reminded (for some reason) about all the advice Reagan got prior to his speech in Berlin from his advisers to NOT tell Russia to "Tear Down This Wall!"

Reagan knew what he thought was the right thing to say, and so he simply said it.

Once again, Sean & Dr. Carson team up to enlighten us. Thanx OP and Staff for bringing this to us. I found this thread to be most interesting and I am pleased to be able to respond to some of you.

#3: We are all grateful, I’m sure, that you jump onto the thread with your “imaginings’ some twenty minutes after it’s posted. Especially when these beliefs tend to provide cover for an undoubtedly thuggish WH.

#17: You’re on the mark, straight out of the Alinsky playbook: RIDICULE. Let’s do it to him often, from all sides.

#20: Your last paragraph made me think of Chief Justice John Roberts. How many of us would choose not to become martyrs if we were seriously threatened?

#23: Do I sense a certain amount of hypocricy in your post? You seem much too eager to jump off “Doctor Carson´s ‘Speaking Truth to Power’ band-wagon,” as you call it. Are you now going back to your plow because Dr. Carson honorably chose not to reveal the source of the threat?

And speaking of Dr. Carson, I am truly amazed by this man. I have soaked myself in his videos, articles about him, etc. since he burst onto the scene a mere three weeks ago. He is blessed.

I truly believe that this man will be instrumental in bringing Barack Obama down.

I am near the word limit here, so I will only say: watch his eyes, his calm demeanor, the wisdom and quiet passion in his words. Compare their two stories, especially their mothers, and the Divine intervention (in my estimation) in young Ben Carson´s not stabbing that boy with a penknife. He has been given to us, folks, all of us. Mark my words.

Great thread and even a greater surprise that there are some among us who would defend any facet of this thuggish dictator´s administration. #8 nailed it. Obama was nothing more than another invitee to this event. If we can´t criticize him in this venue, we can´t ever do it anywhere or anytime.

My answer to the "don´t offend the President" warning is:

Or what?

#23 You´re not even reasonably well cloaked re: what you really suggesting. That Dr. Carson didn´t name the WH insider who issued the warning makes good sense and to suggest otherwise is nothing more than a lame attempt to hint that unless Dr. Carson proves himself with a name he must be lying. There was only one liar on the platform and we all know who he is.

The Worst Wing- How the East Wing

New Republic, by Reid Cherlin    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 3/25/2014 9:13:32 AM     Post Reply
In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

"I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
