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?”

On April 18, 1966 I served as the Alpha North forward observer with Alpha company, 1st battalion, 3rd Marines. My friend and radioman, Glen Richmond, called us all together where 2nd platoons CP group, Glen and Ken Stoddard listened to the attack on Alpha North by VC bolstered by NVA. Here is my thoughts about that event on April 18, 2015.
One of 3 major anniversaries for me. The other 2 may be more traumatic because having moved from 12th Marine HQ to FO at A-1-3 for AlphaNorth, except for Glen Richmond and Ken Stoddard, I was not at the Battery, and didn’t know any of you!
Listening to the events via radio, watching the effect on Glen and Kenny, and living inside my own vivid imagination I feared, cried and prayed along with each of you!
My prayers for Arnie, Danny, Fred, Ralph and Jake continue to this day! My amazement at the wonderful job all of you did in defending Alpha North is part of what makes me proud to have served with such magnificent Marines-where even the “cannon corker” is an expert rifleman! April 18, 1966 is forever part of my eternal memory: when we were Marines, and young!
Thanks for sharing your memories, guys. Love you all. In the Central Time Zone, there was 13 hours difference (they are ahead of us) since we had not yet started Daylight Savings time. That was a week away. At the moment of my brother’s death, my mom dropped some dishes which made a big crash and made her shake, not understanding then what had happened. I won’t forget….. should have known. Depending on what you believe, I think it was the invisible cord that connects mother and child, severed by physical death.
