Special ‘Hannity’ Preview: Dr. Ben
Carson Reveals What Was the Most
Surprising Response to His Criticism
of President Obama at National
Prayer Breakfast

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/13/2013 9:32:32 PM

This Friday, Dr. Ben Carson will sit down with Sean Hannity and a distinguished audience in a special one-hour show that revolves around one idea and one quest: saving America. Tonight, the Insider caught up with Dr. Carson before the taping of the special to get a preview of the show, as well as ask him some of our own burning questions about his inspirational career, his plans for the future, and of course, his reaction to the outpouring of response after his comments at last week’s National Prayer Breakfast. (Snip) Insider: Over the past week,

Comments:
I know what I will be doing Friday night. I can´t wait to see him for an entire hour. It will sure be intersting.

I think this is terrific. One thing I just can´t get over, however, is how many stupid lefties had said so many horrible things about Dr. Carson on the Mediaite comments section a couple days ago. How could anyone, even if they disagree with his views, say nasty things about this man?? I don´t get it.

#1, I think it is because they think that they successfully destroyed Sarah Palin through ridicule, that now they can do it to any conservative that shows up. Particularly if that person is black and avowedly Christian. Such people are traitors to their race and should not be allowed to express themselves publicly, just as Sarah Palin was a traitor to her sex. Also consider the tenor of the comments. The juvenile quality suggests that the commentators read like they are 15 years old.

Our problem is not low information voters, our problem is high sin voters. These folks have no fear of God because our nation is filled with compromising preachers. As Martin Luther King preached, let judgement run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty stream. Our nation has departed so far from God that Dr. Carson´s words are like rain in a desert land.

Isn´t it sad that we have so few proud Americans willing to stand up and speak up ?

If Carson doesn´t want to be prez, how about senator ? If Zippy was smart and we know he isn´t, he would put Carson in his Cabinet.

I added the tv movie made about him, Gifted Hands:The Ben Carson Story, starring Cuba Gooding Jr to my netflix list and will move it up. I´ve read a brief summary of his life and it should be very interesting. Every interview I´ve heard with him is so encouraging. Such a contrast to Obama, night and day.

Reply 1 - don´t forget that the democrat party pays a few people to be a web presence of hundreds if not thousands, directed specifically to respond negatively and mock those they don´t like. They join something like Lucianne or respond to newspaper articles, using different user names and email addresses with directions to cause havoc.

The days of one person, one opinion are gone. How many different email addresses do you have? and you´re legit.

We streamed "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story" last night and watched it with renewed perspective. Cuba Gooding did a fine job portraying Dr. Carson.

This man IS presidential material because he is sane. He is rational, Godly, reasonable, committed to certain core conservative values and fearless - his strength comes from God, which he is the first to admit.

Dr. Carson said in an interview that "if God grabs him by the collar", viz running for POTUS, he would do it. Well, God does use other human beings to do His work so let´s begin the draft process for Dr. Carson for POTUS.

The Left will try tearing him apart as they always do, but you can be certain that a black conservative, successful Republican would be the Left´s worst nightmare. They tried it with Clarence Thomas, with Michel Faulkins, J.C.Watts, and they´ll try it again.

But Carson is different; he´s got a long track record of helping people, saving babies and doing good. Watching the Left go after him would be worth the price of the ticket because they would lose.

Dr Carson appears to be a fine, principled man, an exceptional speaker, with great insight and the courage of his convictions. Truly a motivational person.

Having said all that, it disturbs me to read psters on this forum suggesting that he run for senator, and even president.
Have we stooped down to become low information voters?
People, beyond Dr. Carson´s exceptional qualities as described above, what makes anyone think that he has the qualifications, ability, inclination, and even competence to hold public office--especially that of President?
Public office should not be a celebrity poularity contest. After we have been pounding on Obama´s inexperience and incompetence to be POTUS for the last 6 years, are we to now do the same with Dr. Carson?
I greatly admire the man, but not as POTUS.

Hubby can´t always take Hannity´s pontifications, but I´ll definitely DVR this one for later, and maybe he´ll watch with me.

Watching the professional Left´s hysterics and histrionics over Dr. Carson reminds me of the scene in the Wizard of Oz, where Dorothy pours a bucket of water over the Wicked Witch´s who´s on fire.... intending to do a good thing, but actually doing a REALLY good thing quite inadvertently. We need more Dorothys drowning out the Left´s destructive fires.

I would welcome an honest conservative candidate for POTUS who had not chosen to make a career out of politics, and was successful in his chosen line of work.

I think that was what the old white guys who set up this government over 250 years ago tried to do.

People who spend their entire life in politics (including community organizing) don´t have a clue about the real world because they have never lived in it.

Reagan was a successful actor before he entered politics, and that worked out well.

Like most others here, I will be watching Hannity on Friday with anticipation. Dr. Carson "warms the cockles of my heart" when he speaks, and I feel hopeful again.

#3 is so right - "our problem is high sin voters". It seems that both Protestant and Catholic churches have leaders who are compromising God´s will by deviating from His Commandments. Personally, I think that the big Ten (I don´t mean basketball teams) are perfectly clear. I believe one of those big Ten tells us not to lie; so if we applaud a leader who lies like a rug, what does that say about us as a nation?

The left attacks him because he represents the direct opposite of Fauxbama. He´s a person of real accomplishments. Every day he bears heavy responsibilities and his successes and failures are obvious. There is transparency. There is no delegation of responsibility, no tolerance of lies. What you see is what you get. No obfuscation and pure common sense. And he´s right: we already have too many lawyers.

Dr. Carson should NOT be hidden away in the Senate or Congress.

He is doing what is best by speaking out - all over the public media - educating the lofos.

He should take it to the girls on The View, take it to Letterman, Colbert and especially Stewart, take it to inner-city schools and ivy colleges.

Agree with #3. We have a country who has fallen so far away from God, I think it is ludicrous to keep asking for His blessings. When I pray I ask Him for mercy.
I also ask Him to send us good and decent individuals to govern us. I think my prayers have been answered with Dr. Carson and few others. I´ll keep praying for more.
All I can say is Judgement Day will certainly be interesting. I´ll bet that many of our current crop of ´leaders´ will be standing before the Lord with what I call the ´E-Trade Baby Surprised Face´.
I hope they´ll be wearing diapers ´cause thy´re going to need them.

As head of pediatrics, Dr. Carson has more governing and management experience than Obama does today, seeing as has yet to do any of that. That being said, I would very much like to see him enter public life, as a representative, Senator, or Cabinet appointee (HHS?). Wouldn´t it be great if he became a role model - people spend their lives doing something great, building expertise, gaining wisdom, and then enter public life to serve the people when it is most appropriate instead of the career lawyers/politicians we have now?

The very best, most dramatic, no explanations needed, antidote for the ravaging poisons of stealth Communist Obama, is to see and hear clearly more and more of the fantastic black culture that we have in every city and village of America, and all of them, millions of them, speaking up that same way Ben Carson speaks up. Ben Carson is truly an accomplished member of our society, but we need every level of accomplishment to speak up. Every righeous non socialist human being in America, needs to speak up. Vox Pop. We´ve got to verbally
beat down the would be golfing dictator, all his Marxist comrades and the entire main
stream totalitarian Diane Sawyer, Brian Wms
Steve Pelley nightly brainwashers.

Dr Carson is a communicator. He can explain complex medical concepts and goals to frightened parents.
He leads a large team of people (JHU Pediatric Neurosurg.) to accomplish great things. A great man once said it´s amazing what can get done when you don´t worry about who gets the credit. He won´t worry about getting the credit, "his legacy".
If he answers God´s call to heal our nation, then he will answer, "Here I am Lord. Send me."

I don´t fear the storm that is coming from the left in order to destroy Dr. Carson´s threat to Obama and their progressive agenda. They will be as visicious wolves, but the real threat will come from the republicans who see Dr. Carson as a threat to their power and control. They can´t just have anyone rise to the position of a possible candidate for President without paying their dues to the party machine and political consultants. They can´t have that. Admittedly, Dr. Carson is a political novice, but he is a man of accomplishment and honor and that is in short supply in this day and age. His biggest obstacle will be the fact that it won´t be his turn and we just can´t have that.

Before Carson, Rubio, cruz and Cotton are pilloried by the Dems for "drinking the water" (or whatever), I´d like them to take the initiative by condemning Obama´s administration as a dictatorship--citing examples from the headlines. That will force Zippy and Co. to defend themselves and their anti-American behavior.

I would be interested in hearing more From Ben Carson. I have only known of his work professionally since before last week. Of course the media will go after him because they are stupid and ignorant. He has a professional record for at least 40 years of helping people far more than any other person that Democrats know about. The man is accomplished in this area. As for politics? He lives in Maryland, folks. Senator? Not even House Rep. Get a grip.

However, he has a message of accomplishment, responsibility and healing. He´s more than Obama ever dreamed of being. He has a message and I hope he spreads it all over the state of MD and maybe the US.

Here in VA we have a great Black speaker and Conservative. Right now he is running for LT. Gov. in VA. There are 6 other candidates. He is dynamic, funny, intellectual and Conservative. Right this second he is going around the Tidewater and VA Beach area telling Blacks the story of what they can accomplish and be without the government. He and Ben Carson have the same story. How this translates to politics and runnning for office, I don´t know yet, but these two men are doing their part to warn the LoFoVo of what they have to lose by backing the Democrat Party

What sickens me is when the republicans turn their backs and don´t defend. I watched that happen with every presidential candidate who rose to the top. The Dems honed their skill with Sarah Palin and the republicans perfected the cower.

Amen # 11.
Just because Dr Carson is a gifted speaker and a brilliant neurosurgeon does not mean
he´s qualified to become POTUS.
Obama is obviously unqualified, but, two wrongs
don´t make a right.
Dr Carson is a good advocate for our side on Obamacare and we should let that be enough .
The rush to nominate someone based on a single speech makes us look silly and unserious.

Maybe #39 is one of those people referred to by #8--those whose internet comments are meant to spread discord and mock those who the democrats don´t like.

Our Founding Fathers intended that we have citizen legislators, people of accomplishment that devoted time to governing a free people, who chose them as their representatives.

I would much prefer a man of honest accomplishment, like Dr. Carson, than any career politician, whose goal in life is to stay a career politician.

I am a recovering "lo-fo"---I believed everything the RNC declared. Now I realize how these people have caused the democrat surge by being selfish, power hungry weasels just like the Dems. They withheld money from tea party candidates who beat out the RNC faves then blamed the tea party for the loss. My rule of thumb: if both Dems and RNC belittle a candidate, then he or she is probably worth supporting.

Comments here indicate people feel Dr Carson does not have the experience to be President.
A President´s primary job is to be a leader and to pick the best people for each position
under him. It also helps to be a patriotic, ethical, honest, strong individual that commands respect, from other Countries as well as from our own citizens. The current President has none of these values, in my opinion. Lets all watch and learn Friday night. It will be the first time I watched
anything but TV sports and movies for quite a while. Could not stomach all the drivel,
even on what became P.C. Fox Cable news.
Hoping to find a dark horse in Dr. Carson,
( no racism intended ). Not much you can say today in public that isn´t considered as such. The left destroyed Mr Cain´s chances.
Let´s hope they fail if Dr Carson looks to be
Presidential material. I know virtually nothing about him except he stood up to Obama
in a public venue and that speaks volumes. We need an unafraid fighter to break the back of the tyranny we are excperiencing

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

Townhall, by Guy Benson    Original Article

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White
House had IRS target conservatives
Fox News, by Dana Blanton    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 8:47:35 PM     Post Reply
Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
