Liberals continue their hysteria over remarks made by Dr. Ben Carson at the National Prayer Breakfast last week. Carson, a prominent pediatric surgeon from Johns Hopkins University, dared to weigh in on healthcare — something he knows something about, and certainly knows better than Barack Obama. In the liberal mind, Carson committed a grave transgression; he had dared to disagree with Obama, and in Obama’s presence. In a discussion of Carson’s moral effrontery, Candy Crowley, host of CNN’s State of the Union, asked her panelists whether they were offended by Carson’s comments.
Inappropriate? Maybe. Necessary? YES! Dr Carson said what needed to be said and picked a time when he was face to face with the chief honcho to say it. Notice not one fact is being disputed by Ms Crowley, just the venue. That´s because the truths spoken by the good doctor are indisputable. The doc btw was way more polite than I would have been.
Liberals just need to get over it and quit throwing a hissy fit...We the People love Dr. Carson for his intestiinal fortitude to stand up to a bullying imperial president who ignores those who he was spent to represent!
Dr. Carson: a brave man and a very necessary breath of fresh air. The nation needs more men like Dr. Carson and Rep. Ryan who will look Obama in the face and tell him he is full of it and that his socialism won´t work.
The irony of it is is that if Candy and her comrades had not made such a big deal of it, none of us would have heard about it. Kudo´s to the liberal press who made it possible for others to see the light. Dr. Carson is a black hero for real. So sad that they can´t call him racist. Hee hee.

Come on. We all know the lefties got their pannies wadded up because they inadvertently COVERED THE STORY. They had it on live, waiting for their (pseudo)American Idol to issue forth with their marching and broadcasting orders, when THIS GUY, the other BLACK GUY (yay) stood up and TOLD THE TRUTH (wha?!).
The only thing inappropriate about the venue is that they happened to be watching it. And so, they had to THINK ABOUT IT. (So naturally, they found fault with it.)
"The wrong venue", I think not, many patriotic Americans are praying for anyone to speak the truth no matter the location.
With the msm in the tank for heil obummer it is surprising it took this long to "Palinize Dr Carson" -- a little harder to do because he is the anathema to the alinskyites, a conservative exceedingly intelligent Black Man!!!
Leftists are the most racist people on the planet. They think conservative blacks are Uncle Toms and traitors and they think that the rest of the blacks are ignorant helpless sheep to be kept in their pens until election day when they are then herded to the booths to vote for the farmers who dish out the meager goodies.
Compare the speeches given most recently about the AUTHENTIC, ´state of the Union,´ by Dr. Carson, Sen. Rubio and Sen. Rand Paul, to Pres. 0bama´s COUNTERFEIT representation of the, ´state of the Union.´ ...Who can still believe anything 0bama says anymore when we see what is happening to America the Beautiful right before our very eyes due to his already failed statist policies, both domesticly and in foreign policies?!! The guy just can´t seem to do ANYTHING right & his word has proved not to be trustworthy. His, ´leadership,´ is a dud. mmm mmm mmm
A pregnant woman who was confined to a psychiatric hospital in England after suffering a panic attack awoke from heavy sedation to a horrifying surprise: Her baby had been taken from her via non-consensual caesarian section. Fifteen months later, British social services still refuse to return the baby girl to her mother, who is an Italian citizen. The horrifying ordeal began in July of 2012, when the pregnant woman–whose name has been withheld–traveled to Essex, England to attend a job training seminar. It was there that she suffered a panic attack attributed to withdrawal from medication she was taking to
Now you don’t seem so proud, Bob Dylan. The legendary singer-songwriter has been slapped with a lawsuit by a Croatian group in France after the former civil-rights symbol compared Croats to Nazis and Civil War-era slave owners, reports said. “If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that,” Dylan told Rolling Stone during a conversation about US race relations printed in the magazine in September 2012. “That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood.” The Council of Croats in France sued Dylan and the French edition
A press conference call by the activist group OUR Walmart turned awkward when the group was repeatedly unable to say how many Walmart employees had joined in the group´s long-planned Black Friday protests. Walmart itself put the figure at just 20. "I don´t have an actual count," said Our Walmart member Martha Sellers, a cashier at a Paramount, Calif., store, said in response to a reporter´s question. "I know Walmart is saying that workers are not participating. That is wrong. They are." Asked variations of the same question by two other reporters — one asked what percentage of protesters were Walmart employees
A Manhattan couple has filed suit over a fantasy vacation that wound up being a cruise to nowhere. In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, James and Marie Helene Cinque say they signed up with Viking River Cruises to go on a luxury "Grand European Tour" of the Rhine River on one of its new "Viking Magni" ships this past September. The Cinques were slated to go on a trip that took them from Budapest to Amsterdam, along "a stunning stretch of the river" that included a stop in Colgne, Germany and a tour of the Netherlands´ "fascinating network of windmills," the
Black Friday is upon us, which means trouble´s afoot across the nation. Overzealous shoppers will do anything for a deal, including lying, fighting, and dragging a police officer with a car. We know Black Friday deals are a sham. We feel terrible for the souls forced to work retail on the holidays, cutting short their own Thanksgiving dinners so the masses may shop at earlier hours every year in pursuit of that one budget-busting deal. And yet, every year, we´re greeted with more violence and chaos the morning after we come together as family. Aren´t the holidays wonderful? Two separate
The grumpiest celebrity I’ve ever interviewed? That would be my teenage idol, legendary radio raconteur Jean Shepherd — best remembered for writing the classic comedy “A Christmas Story,’’ celebrating the 30th anniversary of its release this month. When I interviewed him just before the film (which he also narrated and was credited on as a producer) came out in 1983, he dodged questions on just how autobiographical the story (based on one of his short stories) was — only reluctantly admitting that he, like the film’s young hero, Ralphie, grew up in Hammond, Ind., an industrial city abutting Chicago, during
WASHINGTON — White House officials, fearful that the federal health care website may again be overwhelmed this weekend, have urged their allies to hold back enrollment efforts so the insurance marketplace does not collapse under a crush of new users. At the same time, administration officials said Tuesday that they had decided not to inaugurate a big health care marketing campaign planned for December out of concern that it might drive too many people to the still-fragile HealthCare.gov. With a self-imposed deadline for repairs to the website approaching on Saturday, the administration is trying to strike a delicate balance. It is encouraging
Why is the Wisconsin Department of Health Services mailing out paper applications to enroll in the federal healthcare exchanges? That is what one local Milwaukee resident was wondering when she received an envelope containing a lengthy and confusing 26 page application, instructing her to return the document to the London, Kentucky based Health Insurance Marketplace. For privacy reasons, the college-educated Milwaukee African American mother of four wishes to remain unnamed. However, in her remarks to the Wisconsin Free, she was quite open in venting her frustrations. “It is confusing in some areas and lengthy with many pages back to
With the clock ticking toward a Saturday deadline, Obama administration officials promise that the HealthCare.gov website will work better. Exactly how much better? That is hard to say. The measure of success, repeated by an array of administration officials, is that the online marketplace intended to be used by millions of Americans to obtain health insurance would be working smoothly for the "vast majority of users" by Saturday, the last day of November. Last week, President Barack Obama appeared to lower the bar, saying the website would be functioning for "the majority of people who are using it." Vice President Joe
SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him earlier this month on domestic violence charges, according to court documents released Tuesday. A search warrant made public by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested Nov. 18 at his girlfriend´s house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument and also used it to smash her coffee table. Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail on charges
Israel’s transportation company has uncovered a 10,000-year-old house and a 6,000-year-old temple during a routine dig to expand one of the nation’s highways. Workers unearthed a the house, the oldest structure ever found in the Judean lowlands southwest of Jerusalem, while digging for the planned expansion of Route 38, according to the Israel Antiquities Authority. The house dates back to the Pre-Pottery Neolithic period, signifying the transition of society to “permanent dwellings,” or settling down rather than traveling in search of food, Times of Israel reports. State-owned Netivei Israel Company, which is in charge of the highway expansion, also said it discovered
Maybe it was something about what they served in the White House mess in the 1990s. Or perhaps it´s what happens to baby boomer Democrats more than a decade after leaving office. For whatever the reason former vice president Al Gore has gone vegan, just like the president with whom he once served. Gore´s recent decision to forgo animal products surfaced as an offhand reference in a Forbes magazine piece about Hampton Creek Foods, an upscale vegan product line carried in Whole Foods. Ryan Mac´s article, which posted Saturday, chronicled how wealthy investors including Bill Gates, Tom Steyer and Vinod Khosla
A Republican strategist is reminding his party that President Reagan is dead. Ford O´Connell, who worked on Sen. John McCain´s (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential campaign, says if Republicans want to win the White House in 2016, they need to break free of the "obsessive Reagan disorder." Rule #1 of the political analyst´s newly released book, "Hail Mary: The 10-Step Playbook for Republican Recovery," is: "Ronald Reagan is dead. Accept it." Such a sentiment is sure to be tough to digest for a party insistent on using the 40th president´s legacy as a GOP litmus test to prove conservative credentials. "The Reagan fixation is a drag
The hits to President Obama´s popularity, prompted by the botched HealthCare.gov rollout, are simply a natural fluctuation every commander-in-chief faces, Obama told interviewer Barbara Walters in an interview aired Friday. "If you remember, I´ve gone up and down pretty consistently throughout," Obama said in the ABC interview on Friday. "But the good thing about when you´re down is that usually you´ve got nowhere to go but up." "I got re-elected in part because people did think I was trustworthy and they knew I was working on their behalf," Obama said in the network´s exclusive. A CNN Poll of Polls complied
The human species began as the hybrid offspring of a male pig and a female chimpanzee, a leading geneticist has suggested. The startling claim has been made by Eugene McCarthy, of the University of Georgia, who is also one of the worlds leading authorities on hybridisation in animals. He points out that while humans have many features in common with chimps, we also have a large number of distinguishing characteristics not found in any other primates. Dr McCarthy says these divergent characteristics are most likely the result of a hybrid origin at some point far back in human evolutionary history. What´s more, he suggests,
WASHINGTON — As a small coterie of grim-faced advisers shuffled into the Oval Office on the evening of Oct. 15, President Obama’s chief domestic accomplishment was falling apart 24 miles away, at a bustling high-tech data center in suburban Virginia. HealthCare.gov, the $630 million online insurance marketplace, was a disaster after it went live on Oct. 1, with a roster of engineering repairs that would eventually swell to more than 600 items. The private contractors who built it were pointing fingers at one another. And inside the White House, after initially saying too much traffic was to blame, Mr. Obama’s
The Washington Examiner recently reported on an academic study on the 2008 presidential election entitled "The Palin Effect" that examined the effect of then Gov. Palin on the John McCain campaign. Its conclusions run counter to conventional wisdom. The cliché, advanced by the media and the now infamous HBO TV show "Game Change," was that Palin helped to cost McCain the election because of her "controversial" personality. In fact, typical of most vice presidential running mates, Palin had a marginal but largely positive effect on McCain´s standing with the voters. She certainly did not drive away independents and moderates, who along
An education official at a Texas high school is under fire after telling some female students they have been dressing like ‘hoes.’ According to KRIV Fox 26, School Support Officer Dr. Tameca Richardson made the remark to female students at Jack Yates High School in Houston during an assembly on campus. A spokesperson for the Houston Independent School District confirmed the language used by Richardson, the station reported. Some parents expressed anger over Richardson’s terminology, saying the Ph.D.-level educator should have used language that was less offensive. "That was out of line and she should be disciplined for that,"
AUBURN, Ala. — In a season of miracles for Auburn, all it has taken is one mistake to give the Tigers life. No. 1 Alabama made just enough of them Saturday to change the course of history. With no time left on the clock, Auburn cornerback Chris Davis caught a 57-yard field goal attempt by Alabama in the back of the end zone, ran it out down the left sideline and went 109 yards untouched to beat the Crimson Tide, 34-28.
He´s a proud family man already, but President Barack Obama will turn to his children when it comes to life after the White House. Sasha Obama could be the deciding factor in whether the first family stay in Washington once he leaves office in three years. In a taped interview with ABC News, the President said his now 12-year-old daughter ´will have a big vote in where we are´ because she will be a sophomore in high school. When Obama leaves office in January 2017 after two terms, eldest daughter Malia could be off in college. Both girls attend the exclusive Sidwell Friends School
Sen. John McCain is starting to sound like a Tea Party “wacko bird.” In a new fundraising letter for the Republican National Committee released Friday, McCain lashed out at “Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Washington liberals,” who he claimed are destroying the United States. Liberals, he warned, “have taken us down a dark and dangerous path defined by record levels of debt, ever-expanding government, and a lead-from-behind defense strategy. There´s not much time left to turn things around.” McCain’s name carries a lot of weight in fundraising because he was the 2008 GOP nominee and is a leading voice of
President Obama took part in Small Business Saturday by heading over to Politics and Prose, a locally-owned bookstore in Washington, D.C. Wearing a brown leather coat and tan sweater, the president mingled with customers and wished them happy holidays. He brought daughters Malia and Sasha, who occasionally left his side to shop as he chatted with others. At the register, when asked what books he purchased, Obama said, “it is a long list ... books for every age group, from 5 to 52.” In all, Obama purchased 21 titles, including, “All That Is” by James Salter; “Collision Low Crossers:
Former Obama advisor David Plouffe appeared on This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning and predicted that President Barack Obama’s approval rating would rise over the next few months, following the increasing functionality of the Affordable Care Act. “This has been a tough task,” Plouffe said. “It’s not just health care. The shutdown affected everybody’s confidence in government. But let’s fast-forward to the State of the Union and the months after that. Health care working better, a lot of people signing up. The economy continuing to strengthen. Hopefully no Washington shutdowns.
The time has come to end presidential term limits, because continuing the restrictions on how long one can serve in the country´s highest office is bad for the United States, a university professor argued this week. In an opinion piece published in the Washington Post, Jonathan Zimmerman, a history and education professor at New York University, says deciding whether a president deserves a third, fourth or more terms should be left to the American people, not the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, which placed a two-term limit on the position. As background, here´s an excerpt from the amendment, ratified in
