“She is a Bush operative; she worked for the architect of NAFTA, which has killed millions of jobs in this country; she was a member on the Council on Foreign Relations who in Sen. Cruz’s own words, called a nest of snakes that seeks to undermine national sovereignty; and she’s been working for Goldman Sachs, the same global bank that Ted Cruz left off of his financial disclosure,” Pierson said.
The above quote by Katrina Pierson is the one reason I sometimes feel Ted Cruz is a Trojan Horse among our Conservative contingent. However, then I look at his voting history, and how well he did representing Conservative positions in The Supreme Court and with a few exceptions, he has an outstanding resume!
Trump, while not a pure Conservative, represents many of our positions and also attracts the old Reagan coalition out of the democrat side of the aisle.
It is unheard of until this election cycle, but the dumb republicans have spent over $63 million dollars to defeat their front runner. That is insane!?!
I have been saying Kasich is also an OK choice! However, with his stance on trade deals that hurt the American worker, and his recent statement that he thinks Obama’s “anti-2nd Amendment” choice for The Supreme Court is”ok!” my mind has been changed. That leaves only two excellent choices that need to join forces, instead of fighting each other!
Cruz and Trump represent the great majority of Patriotic Americans. They pull together the best from the Republicans and the Democrats. Together, they represent the families that provide the bulk of the American work force. They appeal to the families that volunteer to defend our nation by joining the military. With Dr. Ben Carson, they can provide the examples of what is best about America: Patriotism, a strong work ethic for our nations youth, protect American workers, rebuilding the economy by increasing jobs for American citizens and bringing back to America the trillions of dollars parked by corporations in foreign lands due to the highest tax rate in the world.
Ted Cruz is the most qualified authority on the US Constitution, today! Donald Trump has one of the best records of creating jobs in a fair and equitable manner, for both genders and for American citizens of all races. They bring the best of America together! Throw Dr. Ben Carson in the mix. and you have a triumvirate of the greatest problem solvers ever assembled! IT IS TIME TRUMP AND CRUZ STOP FIGHTING AND JOIN FORCES! Trump needs to run all of his Tweets by Dr. Ben before blasting them out to the world. Dr. Ben’s logic and humble demeanor blended into Trumps fire and “can do” spirit will create an atmosphere of winning that our country needs again! Also, Trump has to learn how to control his New Yorker attitude and words, directing them into positive, productive channels.

THE BELOW ARTICLE IS GREAT, BUT LEAVES OUT THE ABILITY OF DR CARSON TO REMOVE THE SCHISM, CREATED BY BARRY OBAMA, BETWEEN THE RACES ! BEGINNING WITH OBAMA’S CLAIM THE CAMBRIDGE POLICE WERE STUPID, THROUGH HIS SUPPORT FOR THE GANGSTER MICHAEL BROWN IN FERGUSON. OBAMA HAS CREATED THE WORST ENVIRONMENT FOR RACE RELATIONS SINCE HIS PARTY CONTROLLED THE SOUTHERN STATES AND WATER-HOSED AND BEAT BLACK AMERICANS!
HERE IS THE ARTICLE EXPRESSING MY ENTHUSIASM FOR DR CARSON:
Although Ben Carson is a newcomer to politics, he’s done a relatively good job of sticking close to GOP pack leaders, even overtaking Donald Trump’s impressive lead for a short time. His political inexperience, however, leaves many wondering “can he do it?” Can Ben Carson lead the United States, help restore economic prosperity, protect us from terrorism, and calm racial and political tensions at home that threaten to destroy us? Can the fixer of people fix American politics? Here are some reasons why he just might…
He’s a catalyst for change.
Ben Carson will disrupt the status quo. Unlike many of the other candidates, Dem or GOP, he isn’t bound by DC political ties. He’s fresh off the political boat, as it were, and can bring a new perspective to Washington and the White House. He is willing to state what he believes, even if it isn’t popular, but he does it in a way that demands respect instead of ridicule.
He may be new to politics, but he isn’t new to leadership.
Carson doesn’t have much political experience, but he has a resume chock-full of leadership roles. He was director of pediatric neurology at John Hopkins, and if you don’t think that position entails tough calls and decisions that will affect vulnerable children and parents, then you have another thing coming. He’s also served on the boards of corporations like Kellogg Co. and Costco Wholesale Corp as well as founding and heading his own non-profit.
He’s the smartest in the pack of candidates.
Leading the United States of America isn’t brain surgery, but I would guess it’s pretty darn close. Ben Carson would bring not only his intellectual prowess to the Oval Office, but also his plain old common sense. While the intelligence of many of the candidates can be doubted, no one could ever doubt Ben Carson’s genius stature. Even though he’s new to politics, he has the ability to learn the skills he needs to be able to lead the country well.
He understands healthcare.
One of the biggest issues facing Americans in this presidential election is healthcare: the Affordable Care Act isn’t working, but no one seems to have a good plan to fix it. Because Ben Carson has worked in healthcare for most of his life, he understands the unique pressures doctors face and he understands that patients need exceptional but affordable healthcare. If anyone can fix our healthcare crisis, Dr. Carson can.
A characteristic that has been lost in American politics is civility. Recent elections feature mudslinging and name calling and ad homonym attacks but little in the way of truth mixed with kindness. Carson has proven himself to be soft-spoken and civil even to those he does not agree with. While his opponents dredge up anything they can to attack him, Carson responds with graciousness.
Ben Carson may not have a plethora of elected roles under his belt, but that doesn’t disqualify him from the role of commander in chief. Who’s to say that serving as a senator or representative or even governor–probably the job most similar in nature to that of president—prepares a person for the difficult job of leading the United States of America? Any new president has a steep learning curve, and we think Ben Carson can overcome that learning curve as well as anyone.
WE BELIEVE BEN CARSON CAN OVERCOME THAT LEARNING CURVE BETTER THAN ANYONE RUNNING TODAY!
We are certain any of the republican candidates are much better than anyone the democrats are offering. In my house there has been a lot of interest in Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Dr Ben Carson. However, Ben Carson seems to carry the day!
ALSO, HE CAN RESTORE THE IMAGE OF HARD WORKING, BLACK AMERICANS AFTER THE IMAGE OF THE GOLFER; DO-NOTHING DURING BENGHAZI; START WORK AT 9 IN THE MORNING; WASTED OBAMA!
What do you think? Is Ben Carson qualified to serve as president? Why or why not?
WOULD YOU INTENTIONALLY WALK INTO AN AMBUSH? Not if you have any brains. In this election cycle there appears to be only three (3) candidates with brains, Trump, Carson and Cruz. The rest, both parties, are dumb politicians! Donald Trump shows his intelligence by avoiding this trap set by the RNC and Fox News! Here’s the rest of the story:
After FOX News hired a Muslim activist, approved by the RNC, to bash Donald Trump, no wonder he pulled out of the Jan. 28th FOX Republican debate
FOX News and the far left, pro-Muslim biased Google have invited a Muslim YouTube personality, Nabela Noor, to ask questions at tomorrow night’s debate.
Noor is a pro-Muslim advocate who describes Donald Trump as a bigot and who visually portrayed him as being in agreement with Adolf Hitler.
NABELA NOOR’S ACCOUNT
NABELA NOOR’S ACCOUNT reported at Breitbart:
“We have a presidential candidate whose loudest message reeks of hatred and Islamophobia… turning on the news now is scary, and oftentimes, humiliating,” the Muslim woman, Nabela Noor, says in a December Youtube video (below). She admits to becoming a Muslim political activist amid the growing criticism of Islam’s doctrines. “The current social environment for Muslims today is not safe or just…”
The two companies announced Tuesday afternoon that the anti-Trump Muslim advocate would be allowed to play a role in the debate. The Republican National Committee also approved the choice of Noor, an LA.-based press aide for YouTube, Jackie Cavanagh, at MPRM Communications, told Breitbart. “I believe” she was chosen by YouTube, with help from the RNC and Fox, she said.
So, while Rupert Murdock and the rest of the One-World cabal think they can out-Fox the Trump card, once again Trump proves he is right and avoided this ambush.
Notes: Ms Noor forgets that during World War II most of the Arab world was aligned with Hitler. If you look closely you will see they still are!
It may sound like I’m a Trump supporter. Yes, but not entirely, my two first choices-Dr Ben Carson and Ted Cruz! Call me the Carson-Cruz and Trump with a question mark supporter!
This is a subject for a long blog, but it speaks for itself in a loud clamor just as it is written. So only one more item need be mentioned. Meghan Kelly, at Fox, has been selected the “hatchet woman” to do away with Trump! She seems delighted in the role. Meghan, we do not watch you in our house any more. As soon as O’Reilly is over we switch the channel. I hope a few million more will do the same! I only hope Trump has some very good body guards.
PS: Donald, DO NOT TRUST ALL OF THE SECRET SERVICE AGENTS THEY SEND YOU!
Always remember the “fish stinks from the head down!”
“They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump. Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few. It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one.”
“It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich — everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the ‘powerful socialist cabal’ and the ‘corrupt crony capitalists’ are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.”
Excerpt from Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” radio show.
IF BILL BENNETT’S PREDICTION COMES TRUE THE ESTABLISHMENT WILL HAVE A FORCE MUCH MORE VIOLENT TO DEAL WITH THAN ISIS, ISIL, DASH, AL-QAEDA, BLACK LIVES MATTER AND OCCUPY WALL STREET PUT TOGETHER! THE FORCE THAT DECIMATED THE NAZI AND IMPERIAL JAPANESE THREAT DURING WORLD WAR II WILL HIT THEM SO HARD THEY WILL NOT KNOW WHAT HIT THEM! IT WILL BE ALL THE EVIDENCE THE PEOPLE NEED TO BE CONVINCED THEY HAVE BEEN CONSPIRED AGAINST! ALL THEIR WONDERFUL WORD ARE BS, WHILE THEY RIP US OFF! MY SUGGESTION TO THE BANKSTERS, POLITICIANS, CRONY CAPITALISTS AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT IS TO LET THE ELECTION PLAY OUT WITHOUT ANY SHENANIGANS AGAINST CRUZ, CARSON OR TRUMP!
Here is an explanation of the difference between the terms ISIS and ISIL. I have been suspicious of the term ISIL to which the administration stubbornly clings.
ISIS = Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Iraq is to the east of Jordan (shaped like the hatchet) and Syria is to the north.
ISIL = Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Iraq is still to the east of Jordan, and “the Levant” is a term that comes from “the rising (of the sun, i.e., to the east)” – and is basically the land along the Mediterranean – that includes Lebanon, Israel, and those countries along there.
By saying ISIL, you “negate” Israel as its own country and lump it in with the rest of the countries along the Mediterranean – and Israel sort of disappears (loses its sovereignty) and becomes part of “the Levant ” – which is therefore part of ISIL.
If you’ve wondered, as I have, why all government agencies and especially BHO calls it ISIL and even spells it out every time it’s used, instead of ISIS as the rest of the world, here’s the answer. Decoding Obama’s speech reveals some startling revelations. In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL, instead of their former name ISIS, or current name Islamic State. Have you ever wondered about that?
Here is the difference: What makes up the near exact center of the Muslim Levant ? Israel.
ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we?
No, honestly from our perspective it’s all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look. The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south.
If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!
****When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East, that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.
Now you know why Obama has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS.
But he does have a plan, and it’s a really nasty, diabolical one.
Obama’s plan is to drag his feet for as long as he can, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces him to do. His plan to buy ISIL as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can. Listen as Obama and his press secretary and the spokesperson for the State Department and his Joint Chiefs of Staff painstakingly spells out the letters I-S-I-L so there is no doubt in your mind. And it’s working. The Islamic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets and now 12 commercial passenger planes. With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds. The ultimate goal, of course, has not changed and will never change.
The ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel and then the United States.
Now you know a little bit more about why Obama chooses his words so carefully.
“A Jew who votes for Obama (OR ANY DEMOCRAT) is like a chicken who votes for Col.Sanders.”
NOW IT’S MY TURN:
All you idiots of SMART, can’t you finally see Trump has you all fooled into giving him everything he wants? Trump’s a genius! The clowns that think they are the smartest in the room are being lead around by their noses! Trump is the great negotiator! As he manipulated the press and the establishment, I now believe he will get Mexico to pay for the Wall! He can get better deals out of China! Once again he will re-establish good relations with Putin. He may also be able to get that twerp of a clown in North Korea and the terrorists to become more civilized! He is the only one that has a chance to negotiate peace in the Middle East! Until it happened, I couldn’t believe so many Americans could be deceived by Obama, twice! Then I saw Trump perform on the national stage! I thought he was just a lucky guy with connections. Now, I believe he is the knight in shinning armor we have prayed for! I still love a couple of other candidates, but lately Trump has taken the lead!
In case you haven’t caught on yet let’s look at what Trump does to work his magic: He researches the issue of the day. He finds out the truth behind it. He states that fact in an audacious manner! Everyone jumps all over what he said before looking into the truth of the matter, giving him tons of publicity, then the truth emerges and he looks like a hero and a genius!
The most recent example is the claim by democrats and establishment that Trumps calling for the activation of “8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens” of 1952 was illegal, unconstitutional and bigoted. It was passed by a democrat congress and signed into law by the democrat Harry Truman. The politician to use it was the democrat Jimmy Carter in 1979 when he gave all alien Shiite Muslims from Iranians 30 days to report. 50,000 did! 15,000 of them didn’t pass the smell test and were deported! When Trump asked the Obama government to apply the law to terrorist jihadists, the likes of Megan Kelly, Josh Earnest, Carly Fiorina, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Lindsy Graham and Paul Ryan all proved how uninformed they are by attacking this law! Trump was right factually, legally and historically and his critics were left to look like fools!
8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens
Allows the president, by Proclamation to ban or prevent “All, or any class of immigrants” from the United States!
Please, if you are a member of the deceived class, Google it and see that unlike today, in those days the democrats had some common sense and passed laws that protected the American people! Here are a few of the most pertinent clauses for the situation today:
(3) Security and related grounds
(A) In general Any alien who a consular officer or the Attorney General knows, or has reasonable ground to believe, seeks to enter the United States to engage solely, principally, or incidentally in—
any activity (I) to violate any law of the United States relating to espionage or sabotage or (II) to violate or evade any law prohibiting the export from the United States of goods, technology, or sensitive information,
any other unlawful activity, or
any activity a purpose of which is the opposition to, or the control or overthrow of, the Government of the United States by force, violence, or other unlawful means,
(B) Terrorist activities
(i) In general Any alien who—
has engaged in a terrorist activity;
a consular officer, the Attorney General, or the Secretary of Homeland Security knows, or has reasonable ground to believe, is engaged in or is likely to engage after entry in any terrorist activity (as defined in clause (iv));
has, under circumstances indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily harm, incited terrorist activity;
(IV) is a representative (as defined in clause (v)) of—
a terrorist organization (as defined in clause (vi)); or
a political, social, or other group that endorses or espouses terrorist activity;
is a member of a terrorist organization described in subclause (I) or (II) of clause (vi);
is a member of a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), unless the alien can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that the alien did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization;
endorses or espouses terrorist activity or persuades others to endorse or espouse terrorist activity or support a terrorist organization;
has received military-type training (as defined in section 2339D(c)(1) of title 18) from or on behalf of any organization that, at the time the training was received, was a terrorist organization (as defined in clause (vi)); or
is the spouse or child of an alien who is inadmissible under this subparagraph, if the activity causing the alien to be found inadmissible occurred within the last 5 years,
is inadmissible. An alien who is an officer, official, representative, or spokesman of the Palestine Liberation Organization is considered, for purposes of this chapter, to be engaged in a terrorist activity.
Most might think the Security and Terrorist section above are most important. However, I believe Section G is vital to our survival as a nation:
(G) Foreign government officials who have committed particularly severe violations of religious freedom
Any alien who, while serving as a foreign government official, was responsible for or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom, as defined in section 6402 of title 22, is inadmissible.
Why is that more vital than terrorism? Simply because Islam isn’t just a religion, as Americans think of religion! The Muslim is controlled entirely by Islam. He follows it in government, health, marital relations, diet, military matters and especially legal matters.
The concern is in how they interpret “Legal Matters!” It appears from the beheading of an off-duty soldier in England, the beheading of a secretary in Oklahoma and the many shooting from Ft. Hood to San Bernardino every Muslim can determine and be “responsible for or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom.” If the Muslim or a small group of Muslims deem a person is not of the correct religion he can decide to kill him! In other words, if a community of Catholics, Protestants and a Mormon were friends and their Muslim neighbor feels they are infidels, he can be the judge and the executioner! Maybe they have some sort of legal machinations before the Muslim can act, such as issuing a fatwah, but so far it looks like any Muslim at any time can be “responsible for … particularly severe violations of religious freedom.”
If you read The Hadith you will see Muhammad instructs the Muslim to “…lie in wait until the time is right to strike the Infidel…” and “…it’s ok to speak lies…” if it furthers the cause of Islam!
So, if the critics of Trump want to let just any Muslim into the USA, I suggest they rethink such an open welcome. Or, move to Saudi Arabia or a similar country and partake all of their joy! Meanwhile, we need a moratorium on admitting alien Muslims into the USA until they can be properly vetted!

The hit piece this article is commenting on is found at this link immediately below. I suggest you read our answer to it first, then come back and click the link to see if I hit the mark, or am I all wet:
I AM A PROUD DR BEN CARSON FAN. The article we are responding to makes some hurtful, erroneous and outrageous charges against a man that is one of the few real geniuses of our times. Without further ado, I will list the charges and give you as factual an answer as I can.
Ben Carson is too smart; my cousin David Mazzola lives as a monk offering constant love; my aunt Anne Mazzola walks with the saints!
Why I like Trump, Cruz and Carson! They are all men that speak the truth and stand up for the people! My personal favorite is Carson. I fear the uninformed voter might get put off by his thoughtful, deliberate speech pattern. So if he is not the candidate, he should be picked as Vice President. Here is why, in answer to another writers attack on this great man:
Steve Nelson, the attackers claims are in bold letters.
He is a climate change denier-
Climate change is real. It has always been taking place. We’ve had a boiling ball, times of warmth and times of Ice Ages. WHILE humans add a very tiny bit to it, the Milankovitch Cycles are the cause of climate change. These cycles bring an Ice Age every so many millenia. That is why the ice caps are actually growing not melting as the global liars try to make us believe. Ben agrees with this fact, not some fairy tale that puny mankind can pollute our powerful planet into oblivion.
If reporters went after the facts of the unqualified Barry Obama the way the are “supposing” about a genius and accomplished man like Ben Carson, the USA would not have fallen into being the laughing stock of the world.
HE EQUATES ABORTION AND OBAMAsCARE TO SLAVERY-
Abortion is not slavery, but it is infanticide and murder. While in certain situations an abortion can be justified, just as executing a murderer is, or killing an enemy soldier in war would be. With all of the methods of birth control around, using it as a form of birth control is a sin and a crime.
ObamaScare might not equate to slavery, but it certainly was rammed thru as if Obama was a dictator selling a lie! (Have you save $2,500 on your premiums? In many programs you could not keep your doctor. Did the politicians and we the people have enough time to read the 2000 page monster or was it rammed through with “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it!”) I never heard Ben say it was slavery. Can you cite the quote?
HE THINKS THE PYRAMIDS WERE FOR GRAIN STORAGE-
While Ben said “It was a theory” that pyramids were for grain storage, there is a long historical treatise by some archaeologists that support that theory. If you want me to I’ll try to find it. One fact I do know is that when they open a pyramid the wheat will still germinate all these centuries later. What a great feature for grain storage.
HE LIED ABOUT WEST POINT-
“… a prior interview during which he stated that he was offered a full scholarship to attend West Point. On the live screen he claimed that he never said he was offered a full scholarship to attend West Point.” First, I read his book and saw the video. That is stretching the words a little. Ben was never geared to the military. He did meet with Westmoreland or one of his aids. There is some question about the date, but most of us can’t remember every sequence of every event in high school. However, Westmoreland was in Detroit a few months after the date Ben recalls. (Bill, maybe you can recall it all, but you were always the brainiest boy in the class!) Also, as a military academy grad you received what the civilians call a full scholarship. As a cadet you might call it something else, but to the average person you got a full scholarship with a stipend added in. That is what he thought was being offered
He castigates the “liberal media for doubting that he attempted matricide.”Never doubt someone’s redemption!-
Ben tells a few stories to show how he went from being another angry ghetto kid on the path to being a criminal, to turning his life around by turning to God! Compare his ghetto experience to the life of privilege of Barry Obama! It appears, by Barry’s own words, he turned his life around from being a coddled little boy into a druggy that did poorly in school. I must assume, he turned his life over again. This time to the devil because he became president!
WHAT A COUNTRY! EVEN A FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT, USING “AFFIRMATIVE ACTION” CAN BE PRESIDENT IF YOU HAVE FRIENDS IN HIGH OR FIRY-LOW PLACES! In Barry’s place, I assume he had both kinds of friends, but none were the same God that Ben turned to!
Regarding “Redemption.” I recently lost a friend that was Jr. Mr America (He won that title the same day I was wounded in Vietnam), Mr America. Then Mr Universe four times. He was also a criminal! He recently died of cancer because while he was a natural body builder through Mr America, to beat people like Arnold and the others in the Mr Universe category he had to use steroids. The last time I saw him before he died he wished he never used steroids! However, he was not angry about any other aspect of his life. He claimed if he didn’t act and associate with criminals he never would have gone to jail and have a chance for “Redemption.” When he knew he was dying he was a minister, and helping 100’s of people. He was also at peace. His name was Dennis Tinerino. Like millions of people that he touched, I miss him! His ministry was in Beverly Hills and he was a minister to the Stars. (Yes, not everyone there is a crazy liberal! Some have to hide their faith.)
Bill, do you remember out days of Christian Doctrine? I’m sure you continued to live a relative clean life with your dedication to The Military Code. However, your CD buddy had his tangent experiences, Like Ben and Dennis, I am so grateful that God saw fit to offer me “Redemption.” So, anyone that sneers at Ben, the ghetto kid that made good because of God, has no standing in my eyes.
Your information source, Steve Nelson, might be a very nice person. However, he appears to me to lack initiative, class and intellect even though he writes with a clear pen! If he can’t appreciate the hard work and genius of a Ben Carson, he may even be a little dumb. Yes! I would say that to his face! I bet he is a big Obama fan! Obama, the guy that had no experience at anything except to be pushed along by some very powerful people so he could one day do to the USA what no other power has ever been able to do in over 240 years–DESTROY THE USA!
When Steve Nelson says, “The greatest danger is that Carson is a black man conservatives can love. An MSNBC analyst suggested that Carson, if nominated, might win as much as 25 percent of the black vote. These statistics reveal the real challenge Carson might represent to the Democratic nominee,” I realized that Nelson is just another liberal demonrat (democrat operative) that is fearful. Ben Carson will pull a lot more than 25% of the Black vote. My guess is he will pull at least 50% of the Black vote. So, this is just another hit piece. A piece of propaganda from the liberal media that does nothing to help the USA. If this was the 1930’s and ’40’s I would think Barry was Adolph and the media was under the control of Goebbles!
I don’t need to summarize, because Steve Nelson does the best job of summarizing his smear campaign against a man that is 1,000 times better than him and me put together! He does this with the statement, “When Carson calls anti-racist work “political correctness,” how might one challenge him? Who knows the black experience better than a black man raised in poverty? When smug white intellectuals argue that affirmative action is reverse racism, we can challenge them to consider how their own white privilege might have stunted their capacity for empathy. When Carson says black folks are playing the “victim card,” what can be said?”

Donald Trump — Things You Might Not Know About Him
~an interesting read~
As candidates for president emerge it is important to know where each stands on issues that are important to AMERICA. The USA cannot afford to make another mistake in electing someone with a poor track record of public service, or someone who values illegal invaders more than hard-working, loyal Americans and her military.
Trump, hopefully, is waking some of the RINOs up. The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something. They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity than people may think.
And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others.
But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump’s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework. But, since most Americans won’t do their own research, here, in no particular order, is an overview of many of Trump’s positions and plans:
1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.
2.) Speaking of the military, Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.
3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles (which seem to support my comment in the last point):
· American interests come first. Always. No apologies.
· Maximum firepower and military preparedness.
· Only go to war to win.
· Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.
· Keep the technological sword razor sharp.
· See the unseen. Prepare for threats before they materialize.
· Respect and support our present and past warriors.
4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.
5.) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S., once again creating jobs here.
6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.
7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.
8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to:
· Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%
· From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%
· From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%
· $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%
9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.
10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.
11.) Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.
12.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare roles and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.
13.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.
14.) Trump opposes Common Core.
15.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
16.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.
17.) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states rights issue, not a federal issue.
18.) Trump supports the death penalty.
19.) Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm… looks like he believes in horse sense!). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense. On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.
Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally.
He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation. Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.” We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans. Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them. Looking over this list of what he wants for America I see a very necessary set of goals that are long past due. Before we criticize someone because the media does, maybe we should seriously consider what he has to offer.
Meg, Do you think we are fools? Your shoddy plot to destroy Trump was so obvious you better stay away from writing mystery novels!
My letter to megyn says it all: “YOU BETRAYED US! I doubt I’ll ever watch you again!

Al BattistaI no longer call myself a Libertarian because of the destructive nature of their “Open Borders” policy. However, how can so many people not understand Rand Paul’s position on “Privacy in the Bill of Rights?” FIRST, the NSA gathers so much information on innocent people that they miss the Boston Bombers and many other terrorists! SECOND, the Mass gathering of everything is not necessary, helpful or useful in any manner. If they really wanted to do some good with their spy program they would do it the same way the medical establishment tracks down venereal diseases. You look at all of the known infected cases, and track down all of their contacts. That leads to the next set of cases and eventually you can contain the infection/terrorists! That brings us back to THE FIRST POINT: There is no need to spy on everyone! Just the terrorists please!
Can’t say the same for the Fox clowns! My letter to megyn says it all: YOU BETRAYED US! I doubt I’ll ever watch you again!

Al BattistaWhy should Trump make a pledge this early! If Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio are the nominee then it won’t matter, because the demonrat/repugnants will win. The only way we can get some relief out here in the wasteland that used to be America is if Cruz, Carson or Trump wins. Yes! I like Carly Fiorina, Walker, Kasich and Huckabee, especially Huckabee. But “RUN BEN RUN! CRUIS’N WITH CRUZ! TRIUMPH WITH TRUMP!” ARE THE COMBO I’m sticking with!

Al BattistaMy letter to megyn says it all: “YOU BETRAYED US! I doubt I’ll ever watch you again! RUN BEN RUN! CRUIS’N WITH CRUZ! TRIUMPH WITH TRUMP!
A summary of the Debates: After the early debate I wanted to see Carly Fiorina moved to the top tier. At 9 pm, I liked all of the candidates but with some distrust for Bush/Rubio! They are establishment, and the establishment republicans are REPUGNANT! The establishment democrats are DEMONRATS. As the debate rolled on my choices started to gel into seeing four (4) candidates in the next debate: Carson, Trump, Cruz and Fiorina. I still like Walker, Kasich and Huckabee. I like Rand Paul’s attitude and fight, but can no longer go along with the Libertarian Open Borders policy. I stand 100% with Rand on the privacy issue. The NSA is gathering so much information on everyone that they miss many of the terrorists. If they would focus on the known terrorists, and spread out to only their contacts they would be much more successful!
What if the gold standard is not an antique but, rather, a “timeless classic” (as termed in a speech by Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann in September 2012)? High tech guru George Gilder deploys cutting-edge science to show why this is so, based on Shannon information theory. Gilder’s analysis is neither eccentric nor anomalous.
The intellectual pedigree of the classical gold standard runs through two of the greatest scientists in history: Copernicus and Newton. Nicolas Copernicus, in his Essay on the Minting of Money eloquently lays out the scientific foundations of the classical gold standard. (Full disclosure, I served as co-editor of a modern translation, by classicist Gerald Malsbary, published by Laissez Faire Books and recently republished by Cognella as part of a splendid compilation of source documents in classical economics in The Monetary Foundations of the Macroeconomy Volume 1 edited by Thomas Rustici, James Caton, Dima Shamoun, and Ted Shamoun).
Sir Isaac Newton, as Master of the Royal Mint of Great Britain, created what became the modern classical gold standard. This was a fact well known by President Jefferson, as astutely noted by Dr. Judy Shelton in erudite commentary to her definitive edition of Jefferson’s Notes on the Establishment of A Monetary Unit. Under the Newtonian gold standard, with variants, the world economy thrived for almost 200 years.
The gold standard also was one of the few things that both Jefferson, and his arch-rival in Washington’s cabinet, Alexander Hamilton, fully agreed. The gold standard’s intellectual provenance, both in deep scientific history and among the founders of America, really is impeccable.
Copernicus and Newton, of course, are figures from the deep past. Jefferson, slightly more contemporary, was extolled by President Kennedy at a dinner honoring Nobel Prize winners when he greeted them as “the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”
Copernicus and Newton, timeless classics, remain appropriately revered as two of the greatest members of the scientific pantheon. Their discoveries — Heliocentricity, and the Three Laws of Motion — remain central to science. Old does not equal atavistic. Now let’s get modern.
It is less paradoxical than might superficially appear that George Gilder comes forward to exalt the scientific foundations of the classical gold standard. Gilder does so by drawing deeply upon modern Shannon information theory, work foundational to the high tech revolution very much alive and well.
So, a leading high-tech public intellectual attests to the ultra-modernity of the gold standard. Gilder, also known as the living author most quoted by President Reagan, went on to high tech iconic thought leader status as the author of Microcosm, Telecosm, The Silicon Eye, and Knowledge and Power among other highly-regarded works.
Gilder now presents a brilliant monograph, The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money. In it he explores at greater depth some of the thoughts he first broached in a key chapter of his influential Knowledge and Power. The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money was commissioned by the American Principles Project (whose sister organization I professionally advise). He therein explodes the pernicious myth of the gold standard as an atavism.
In 106 lucid pages, Gilder magisterially demystifies money. A very few choice excerpts:
The economy is not fundamentally an incentive system, it is an information system. Manipulating money cannot create growth, and it distorts the information economic actors need to acquire the learning that alone is wealth-creation.
Growth in wealth stems . . . from the progress of learning. It is accomplished by entrepreneurs conducting falsifiable experiments of enterprise, with the outcomes measurable by reliable money.”
Claude Shannon “resolved that all information is most essentially surprise. Unless messages are unexpected, they do not convey new information.” But “[i]f a carrier is to bear surprising contents, it must itself be unsurprising.” That is what makes it possible to distinguish the signal from the noise.
In economics money is part of the conduit or carrier. If money is to foster learning and knowledge, it cannot itself be surprising. . . . money must be the measure, rather than what is measured.”
Gilder is unusual, but not unique, among tech leaders in his regard for gold. No less than Peter Thiel in an interview observed:
If you really wanted to create an alternate currency, it would have to be gold-based,” he says. “There are enough people who already believe in gold that you could probably get it to the tipping point. Starting completely from scratch is a lot harder to do. I have a lot more thoughts, but I’d say—you probably want to go with gold.”
In the hands of Copernicus, Newton, and Shannon as channeled by Gilder, money becomes simple and intuitive. Gilder gives us the real thing: science. In The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money, George Gilder, true to his title, lays out a compelling 21st century case for the gold standard. Gilder reveals anew the gold standard’s deep scientific foundation. Buy a copy on old fashioned paper in better bookstores everywhere or download it and read it.
Delight in a very modern, scientific, demystification of money and discussion of why the classical gold standard repeatedly has proved itself beneficial. With The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money George Gilder well may have delivered his next game changer.
I liked “W” because he wasn’t the smooth co-artist like most politicians. Unfortunately, his brother Jeb appears to be what I don’t like about politicians. My choice among the RepublICANs is Dr. Ben Carson. Most don’t give him a chance, but you can believe he is the best of the lot!
As ISIS runs rampant an increasingly popular George W. Bush is vindicated
Former President George W. Bush has been enjoying something of a revival in recent months. First there came the news that Bush polls better than the man who replaced him, Barack Obama. Friday, Gallup reported that fewer people than ever view the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as mistakes. No wonder, as Hot Air reported, when Bush opined that we need boots on the ground to settle with ISIS, heads all over the planet nodded silently in agreement. After all, boots on the ground were what finally won the Iraq War during the surge, a victory that President Obama so casually threw away with both hands.
Of course, all the boots on the ground don’t have to be American. The Kurds and certain of the Sunni tribesmen who have not yet been irrevocably alienated by Obama are certainly willing to fight. Given arms and support, they would do so with alacrity. It is not outside the realm of possibility that, also given arms and support, Jordanian and Egyptian troops could add muscle to an anti-Isis coalition. Throw in some American special operators and lots of air power and the days of the Islamic State would be numbered. If Bush were to, by some miracle, become president again, they would be.
We have an inkling that Bush was not as despised as the media would have us believe several years ago when those “Miss Me Yet?” posters started to show up with the former president’s smiling visage. Many predicted that Bush, who left office under a cloud, would in short order become a modern day Truman, only fully appreciated when time and the incompetence of his successor highlighted how good the country had it when he was in charge. That development has come true.
The man made happiest by this development, besides George Bush, is his younger brother Jeb, who also wants to become president. The Bush name may not be as much as a burden as many have thought.
VOTE BEN CARSON, 2016!!
Jeb might be a nice person, but he is also just another politician! Ben Carson, is a genius of a man, and can undo all of the crap Obama is leaving behind-especially the degeneration of race relations in the USA! Ben is not another smooth talking, run of the mill politicians! If you haven’t done so yet, check him out and you will see that he is the best choice.
