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.

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.

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

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "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. "I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."

Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, who oversees the IRS, made the rounds of four Sunday morning TV talk shows (all but CBS’s Face the Nation) to promote President Obama’s latest “pivot” to the economy, but ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CNN’s Candy Crowley failed to take advantage of the opportunity to press him on the IRS scandal. NBC’s David Gregory squeezed a question in at the very end of their session, but then didn’t follow up on Lew’s insistence “there’s no evidence of any political involvement.” Gregory: “Mr. Secretary, I’ll leave it there.

Not a bit like the vigilante posses in the movies, the Rev. Al Sharpton’s posse will be out in 100 cities this weekend. But although the mainstream media’s not admitting it, Al’s is a posse that is already flagging before it starts. Missing from the the Rev. Sharpton’s planned “Justice for Trayvon” day, is the real spontaneity and consensus of the posses of yore. Rev. Sharpton’s planned weekend protests in 100 cities, relies on the mainstream media and politicians of the day fueling the fire of racial unrest.

The cover of Friday´s edition of Rolling Stone magazine featuring Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The cover of Rolling Stone magazine has most often been the domain of musicians, actors, comedians, and the occasional politician. But this week, the periodical has raised eyebrows by letting Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev grace the famous front. The issue, which hits newsstands Friday, features an picture of an unsmiling Tsarnaev above the bolded legend "The Bomber." The subhead promises to reveal "[h]ow a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster."

The 60 million yuan (£6.4 million) Jibaozhai Museum, located in Jizhou, a city in the northern province of Hebei, opened in 2010 with its 12 exhibition halls packed with apparently unique cultural gems. But the museum’s collection, while extensive, appears ultimately to have been flawed. On Monday, the museum’s ticket offices were shut amid claims that many of the exhibits were in fact knock-offs which had been bought for between 100 yuan (£10.70) and 2,000 yuan (£215). The museum’s public humiliation began earlier this month when Ma Boyong, a Chinese writer,

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
