If They Were Offended By
Conservative Doctor´s Prayer
Breakfast Speech

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/10/2013 11:47:18 AM

A conservative doctor named Ben Carson made quite a splash this week when he appeared to lecture President Obama at the national prayer breakfast. On CNN´s State of the Union Sunday, host Candy Crowley asked her guests, "Do you find anything offensive with" what the doctor said or did (video follows with transcript and commentary): CANDY CROWLEY, HOST: This was in Dr. Ben Carson. He is a world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon out of Johns Hopkins. He was at the prayer breakfast and he was talking about the idea of, you know, weaving the Bible into some objections

In Liberalville it´s come to this: God shouldn´t be mentioned at a prayer breakfast.

We all know what´s at work here; anyone who might make Obama appear as the fool he is should not be present.

Nice people don´t say ikky things about your religion.

And Liberalism is a God and Obama is his prophet.

Bad people will always do bad things but in order to get good people to do bad things you need religion.

Oh my - Candy Crowley, fishing for mud to sling, again!

One of these days she is going to hook into a Great White and end up, figuratively speaking, becoming a big fat "horse douver", as Minnie Pearl would say.

It would be very entertaining to see her try those underhanded tactics on Newt Gingrich.

Candy, neither you, your guests or anyone else has the right to go through life and not be offended. Half of America is offended by President Skeeter and I don´t see you taking up for us. As a matter of fact we are offended by you but that´s okay. I can handle the offense without having to whine about you.

I was shocked I tell you, shocked! That the good doctor mentioned God at a Prayer Breakfast and in front of The One. He also gave his opinion on the state of the union. I am still in shock! Candy, you offeded me when you helped Obama during the debates. You offend me when you ask a stupid question like that. Why is a speech by a conservative Christian offensive when none of the speeches by our Communist leader are offensive? How can you defend a Communist!

Candy Crowley!!! - I blame the RNC for the 2012 campaign debate debacle that allowed this FAT MEDIOCRE BIMBO to have the ability help Obama lie to the American people. In 2016 the RNC must not participate in ANY of those Presidential Committee selected debates. Republicans are soooooo STUPID - they just refuse to understand the media in this nation.

So the libs didn´t think it was appropriate for Dr. Carson to speak as he did at the prayer breakfast - I do believe they all have loose screws rattling around in their heads. Do they think it´s appropriate when Obama berates and insults the supreme court justices, congress-people and anyone who disagrees with him? What a sad world this is becoming.

Dr. Ben Carson, thank you, thank you for speaking out.

Dr. Carson´s speech was one of the most inspiring, uplifting, straightforward, fearless, principled and profound that I have ever seen. My admiration for him knows no bounds.

Q. What do Black Democrats call an accomplished and pioneering conservative Black pediatric neurosurgeon from Johns Hopkins Hospital?

A. "Sell-out," "Uncle Tom," "Race Traitor," "House Ni**er," "Not an Authentic Black Man," etc., etc., etc.

God bless and keep you, Dr. Carson. Please ignore all of the jeering and catcalls from those still chained up on the Democrat Plantation.

So glad Zuckerberg is giving this twit her walking papers.

So I guess we see the meme taking shape: Dr. Carson was offensive. The left cannot touch him any other way, he is too well-respected as a world-renowned physician and surgeon. Clearly Obama was offended by Dr. Carson’s speech, he didn’t applaud and showed tremendous disrespect.

Apparently she was projecting that huge chip on her liberal/statist/dem shoulder onto her panel and handful of TV viewers. Why is the lefty/lib media always so eager to be rude regarding spoken words, of, ´truth to power,´ especially when expressed by a universally respected, merited and undeniably accomplished, courageous and ethical Christian American?

Read the First Amendment, Candy(?!), and get a clue about individual freedoms in the U.S.A.. The lefty/lib/dem alphabet media simply can´t stage, script, censure and edit EVERYTHING spoken by America´s free people although, ...´they try to on TV!´ s/

Apparently it never bothers Crowley when BO misquotes, misuses, takes out of context, Biblical texts. Apparently it doesn´t bother her when boobs in the media and entertainment industry exalt BO to messiahship and infallibility.

what utter foolishness. yet she still sits there and pontificates!

BUT, read Jan Schakowsky´s response.

FTA: "Well, I think that there´s a political correctness that he was trying to use to appeal to a conservative audience. ... (Breakfast) was not really an appropriate place to make this kind of political speech and to invoke God as his support for THAT KIND OF point of view [my emphasis]. But I think most of all the kind of message that he was giving shows a real empathy gap of where the American peole are right now, and I think it´s reflective of where many of the Republicans and Tea Parties are right now that we need to have an economy that works for everyone."

Aside from the extremely poor grammar, she makes the obligatory attack on the usual boogeymen, Repubs and "Tea Parties." Nonsensical! This is Dem/Lefty tactic: no matter what the subject, attack the Repubs, and/or "Tea Parties", or Bush or ---you know the list.

Next time there´s a Prayer Breakfast, better not appeal to God, what ever you do!

Oh the horror! A Black man who doesn´t believe the liberal clap trap vomited forth from the lamestream media mentioning God at the National Prayer Breakfast.Dr Carson´sspeech was a breath of fresh air and wasn´t offensive in the least. What we have here and what I find truly offensive is that we have the fat cow that did such a bang up job moderating the townhall debate asking such a stupid quesion. You see to a thick headed liberal gas bag like "Diet" Candy Crawly anyone who makes fun of DA WUN must be destroyed. Whether it be a Republican presidential nominee or an intelligent conservative Black man. Candy dear go to the nearest buffet and stuff your pie hole. I´m sure some food will calm you down from being so offended.

David Letterman is irreplaceable, but someone must step into his shoes in 2015 to take the reigns. In the spirit of CBS’ long-running late night talk show, here’s our own Top Ten list of people who should replace Letterman: 10. Jon Stewart — The host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” has long been considered a favorite to take over Letterman’s gig. 9. Chris Rock — Arguably one of the funniest comedians on the planet, and he’s already hosted his own HBO show in the past. 8. Conan O’Brien — He’s got the chops. He’s got the talent. He needs to

Washington– It appears the George Washington Bridge controversy that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s been dealing with back home in the Garden State hasn´t affected his standing nationally as one of the Republican Party´s most potent fundraising rainmakers. The Republican Governors Association announced Thursday that the group has raised a record $23.5 million the first three months of this year, and $33 million since Christie took over as RGA chairman in late November. That´s a new fundraising record for the first four and a half months of a new RGA chairman´s tenure. The $23.5 million raised in this year´s first

For a family that has been vocal about disliking the media, the Palins sure have participated in a fair amount of TV shows. Continuing that tradition, Sarah Palin stars in “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” premiering Thursday night on the Sportsman Channel. The docu-series follows the former Alaska governor/vice presidential candidate around the country as she and a crew explore “people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoor lifestyle.” This is just the latest in a long line of TV shows for the Palins — perhaps not unexpectedly, several have had their share of controversy attached.

The Income-Inequality Love Train
Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Henninger    Original Article

Suddenly the subject of income inequality has turned into a global love train. Politicians and public-policy shops all over the world are hopping onboard. Naturally the engineer is Barack Obama, who gives speeches on income inequality and won a presidential election by rolling over 1% of the population. Democrats in this year´s midterm elections are running on income inequality, and this is rational. Their alternatives don´t look attractive, despite ObamaCare´s seven million recruits. Less obvious is the linkage being made now between global warming and—what else?—income inequality. Or that the International Monetary Fund is moving income inequality to the top of

Military Gun-Free Zones Clarified,
Implemented Under Bill Clinton
Breitbart Big Peace, by AWR Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/3/2014 2:14:04 PM     Post Reply
With the April 2 shooting at Ft. Hood--the second such shooting at that base in five years--it is important to remember that military gun-free zones were implemented under President Bill Clinton. As Breitbart News reported on September 17--the day after Aaron Alexis opened fire on unarmed personnel in the gun-free DC Navy Yard--military bases became gun free zones just months into Clinton´s presidency. To be fair, the original directive (5210.56) relating to military gun-free zones was issued during the last months of President George H.W. Bush´s presidency. Then, an implementing regulation (AR 190-14)--which clarified and revised 5210.56--was issued just months

It is those principles—the principles of a free society—that have shaped my life, my family, our company and America itself. Unfortunately, the fundamental concepts of dignity, respect, equality before the law and personal freedom are under attack by the nation´s own government.

I have devoted most of my life to understanding the principles that enable people to improve their lives. It is those principles—the principles of a free society—that have shaped my life, my family, our company and America itself. Unfortunately, the fundamental concepts of dignity, respect, equality before the law and personal freedom are under attack by the nation´s own government. That´s why, if we want to restore a free society and create greater well-being and opportunity for all Americans, we have no choice but to fight for those principles. I have been doing so for more than 50 years, primarily

The only thing missing from President Obama´s Rose Garden press conference Tuesday was a "Mission Accomplished" banner. He bragged that 7 million people have “signed up” through the health exchanges and claimed it was a “big step forward.” Americans are smart to be skeptical about these assertions. After all, this is the president who told us, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period." He said, “If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period.” He claimed the average family´s health insurance costs would go down by $2,500 per

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

5 Reasons Why Republicans
Should Say No to Jeb 2016

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings. Restaurants, states, [and]

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
