Ben Carson announces presidential campaign
5/3/15 • washingtonpost.com

Ben Carson, a world-famous neurosurgeon and newly minted conservative folk hero, announced Sunday in an interview with a Florida TV station that he is seeking the Republican nomination for president. He will make a formal declaration Monday in his home town of Detroit.
Carson said on CBS affiliate WPEC-TV that he is ready to be part of the "equation."
“Many people have suggested to me that I should run for president, even though I’m not a politician,” he said, adding: "I began to ask myself, why are people clamoring for me to do this? . . . I’m not 100 percent sure politics as usual is going to save us."
The announcement is the latest stop on a sudden journey to conservative superstardom. Carson, 63, burst onto the political scene in 2013 when, addressing the typically nonpartisan National Prayer Breakfast, he spoke about the dangers of political correctness, put forward the idea of a flat tax, and criticized President Obama’s health-care law. What made it stand out: He did it right beside a steely faced Obama.
That week, the Wall Street Journal ran an editorial titled “Ben Carson for President.” He made the rounds on Fox News, where at one point Sean Hannity told Carson that he would vote for him “in a heartbeat.” By August of that year, there was a "National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee."
The media whirlwind was hardly his first brush with fame. Before taking the conservative world by storm, Carson was famous for an up-from-his-bootstraps life story in which a young black kid growing up in poverty became at the age of 33 the youngest major division director in Johns Hopkins Hospital history. He was the first pediatric neurosurgeon to successfully separate twins conjoined at the head and wrote best-selling book, “Gifted Hands,” about his life. Actor Cuba Gooding Jr played the doctor in a movie about his life story.
When "Gifted Hands" was published in 1990, the Rev. Jesse Jackson wrote a blurb on the back calling him a “model to all the youth of today.” For a long time his appeal was so apolitical, he says, that he was offered the job of surgeon general by both George W. Bush and Obama.
[That time Ben Carson called President Obama a 'psychopath']
[In N.H., Carson suggests Obamacare may be about controlling lives]
His plan at the beginning for 2013 was to retire from medicine and spend his days in Florida relaxing and learning how to play the organ. But that all changed after the speech, in large part because of to the efforts of John Philip Sousa IV (yes, he’s related to the composer) and Vernon Robinson, who started the "Draft Ben Carson" effort. To date, the group has raised close to $16 million -- more than the Ready for Hillary PAC raised -- has gotten half a million signatures encouraging Carson to run, and has 30,000 active volunteers across the country, according to Sousa.
“I continue to travel around five or six states a week,” Carson earlier told The Washington Post. “And wherever I go there are huge enthusiastic crowds of people saying, 'You’re our hope.' That made me believe that I owe it to those hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people who feel that way.”
Carson has made a name for himself as a “tell it like he sees it” insurgent. This has won him fans for his bluntness. It has also won him critics for exactly that reason. He’s gotten himself into political hot water by saying that Obamacare is the “worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” said the current-day United States is “very much like Nazi Germany” and said that allowing same-sex marriage could lead to allowing bestiality.
[Joe Biden on Ben Carson comments: 'I mean, Jesus. God. Oh, God.']
[Ben Carson says being gay is a choice, points to prison as an example]
Even his political team has admitted that perhaps he needs to work on his messaging.
“If I could create the Webster’s dictionary of words Dr. Carson could use in the campaign, there would be some words I’d leave out,” his campaign chairman, Terry Giles, told The Post earlier this year. But that unfiltered style lies at the heart of his appeal. At the foundation of Carson’s campaign is an opposition to “political correctness” that plays particularly well in places with staunchly conservative bases, such as Iowa.
Asked in the WPEC interview what he has taken from the controversies, he said: "I don’t wander off into those extraneous areas that can be exploited. I have learned that."
A polling composite from Real Clear Politics has Carson in fifth place in Iowa behind Scott Walker, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul. Even Carson and his team will readily admit that he is a long-shot candidate. But being at the back of the pack will allow him to run the kind of campaign that only an underdog can pull off.
“I’m different because I’m not a politician,” Carson told The Post. “I’m not going to do things just because they are politically expedient.”

AMERICA RIOTS, BURNS AND SELF DESTRUCTS, as the battle for the GOP, RNC, Republican Leadership of fools gets down and dirty in a vicious exchange of brutal word slinging between grown men behaving like 5 year old boys afraid they may get spanked publicly if they even "Think" of pushing or shoving, let alone, hitting, kicking, bitting, throwing sand, spitting, scratching, eye poking, screaming, hair pulling, smacking, or any kind of overt determined public displays of focused power. They are hiding in a cowards game of keeping the public from knowing what they really think, believe and want you to do for them.  

Please, afraid to use words to  win an argument or make a point. Afraid is the operative word, afraid to use words to get rid of dangerous idiots destroying the fabric of a nation. That applies to entrenched corrupted bureaucrats on both sides of the isle. The pussy footing soft peddling passive aggressive dishonesty of the last election is not going to fly this time as the American public is looking to cleanse house with  bloody fight in the arena of ideas. The doomed yuppy quest for perfection has yield generations adult children and psychologically hardened corrupted old fools faking nice.

I can't read passed the word "Pressed" in the copy/paste article below. The sisification of America goes on as the ill tempered battle hardened tortured John McCain plays the passive aggressive card of fake civility in the dirty game of niceries to bulling your way to the public "Tit" of endless milk, honey and blood money. 

The four most dangerous men in America have been, are and will continue to be 1)John McCain (Mr. bad judgement Keating Five, S and L bail Bush senior fraudsters that started it all at a cost of US involvement in World War Two setting the stage for the TARP bail out written up as exempt from all laws past and future) 2) Mitch McConnell  (2.9 billion dollar earmark sell out back stabber on the Obama Care Health Care rip off to riches) 3)John Boehner ( week kneed, lack luster, can not make an argument, refuses to do his job, will not fight, lost opportunity, squandered position, looser of losers leader of losers) 4) US Supreme Court Idiot John Roberts ( thinks he can rewrite a case before the court essentially writing legislation rather than do his job and  rule on the case as presented to the court by striking it down) 

The reason they are the four most dangerous men in America is because they are supposed to know better and because they have made a life out of putting themselves forward as knowing better but when push comes to shove they fail to stand on the principles they say they represent and resort to self interest driven politics that makes them all exactly what they say they are not. This intellectually corrupted bought and paid for Republican Leadership is equally corrupt in principle as the "Clinton Cash" for influence peddling or the dangerous fear based identity driven usury of this administration of con-men and women. 

Americans do not see America as the corrupt nation it has become simply because the actors on the stage refuse to get real and make it real or make it personal as there is just to much personal reward in the game of smoke and mirrors. Bureaucrats.

Washington (CNN)John McCain says he has no idea what Ted Cruz is talking about -- again.

McCain, the Arizona senator who once called Cruz a "whacko bird," said the Texas senator running for president never pressed him to hold hearings about whether soldiers should be allowed to carry a personal firearm on military bases -- a claim Cruz made Sunday at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

"You know, I was fascinated to hear that because I haven't heard a thing about it from him. Nor has my staff heard from his staff. Where did that come from? I have not a clue," McCain, who chairs the Armed Services Committee, told reporters Monday, according to The Hill.

He added that he would be "glad to discuss the issue" with Cruz to see if there should be a hearing.

But Cruz's assertion Sunday that he has been "pressing" McCain for a hearing came as a "complete surprise" to the Arizona senator and one-time GOP presidential nominee.

"Maybe it was through some medium that I'm not familiar with. Maybe bouncing it off the ozone layer, for all I know," McCain said according to The Hill. "There's a lot of holes in the ozone layer, so maybe it wasn't the ozone layer that he bounced it off of. Maybe it was through hand telegraph, maybe sign language, who knows?"

Cruz acknowledged Tuesday that he had "misspoken" when he told an audience at a hunting club in New Hampshire that he has been "pressing" McCain to call hearings on the issue, which he said he was "very concerned about."

"I will acknowledge I may have misspoken in New Hampshire when I said that I've been pressing John McCain and that what I have been pressing is the Armed Services Committee and John McCain is the new chairman of it," Cruz said Tuesday on Fox News.

Conservative activists and legislators aligned with Cruz have been calling for the reversal of a policy forbidding service members from carrying a personal firearm on military facilities, claiming that service members should be better equipped to protect themselves from incidents like the Navy Yard and Fort Hood mass shootings.

"I think it's very important to have a public discussion about why we're denying our soldiers the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights," Cruz told the group Sunday, Politico reported.

Cruz clarified that he hasn't been pressing McCain directly on the issue but pointed out that he has raised the issue publicly in the last year at hearings and sent a letter last year to then-Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan) about holding hearings.

Cruz's office said Cruz is drafting a similar letter to McCain.

"Senator Cruz has been discussing this issue for a long time and he looks forward to continuing to raise it in the Senate Armed Services Committee where he serves with Chairman McCain," Cruz spokeswoman Amanda Carpenter told CNN in an email Tuesday.

Cruz, a first-term senator elected on a tea party wave, has often butted heads with establishment Republicans like McCain who see Cruz's unflinching postures as unproductive to passing legislation.

Shortly after Cruz's clarification, McCain tweeted that Cruz "is a friend and valued member of the Senate Armed Services Committee."


But McCain has made it quite clear that Cruz won't get his support during the Republican presidential primary. But that's not just because the two have butted heads.

McCain has said he would support a bid by Sen. Lindsey Graham, McCain's closest friend in the Senate, if he decides to run. Graham said this weekend he is "91% sure" he'll make a run for the White House, challenging Cruz and others in a crowded GOP field.

As McCain joked about Cruz's claim, Cruz also took to humor -- laughing off McCain's response.

"Oh I like John McCain," Cruz said Tuesday. "He can always be counted on for a good quote.

Joe Carpenter
Extended circles  -  7:24 AM
 
Thank you CNN for picking up this post in line visible on your page. Once CNN picks up a post the other big 4 are soon to follow, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and of course the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal the big two of print media. From there the Internet News services Like Google News and  Yahoo News follow. Once the algorithms start clicking in America the overseas press follows as in the Hong Kong Daily Secret, China Times, Moscow Times, Stern Magazine, and The Financial Times of India. After that these posts go viral and never go away and are forever a permanent record on the internet of America gone stupid at the hands of intellectual cowards afraid to make an argument for anything.

Washington (CNN)John McCain says he has no idea what Ted Cruz is talking about -- again.

McCain, the Arizona senator who once called Cruz a "whacko bird," said the Texas senator running for president never pressed him to hold hearings about whether soldiers should be allowed to carry a personal firearm on military bases -- a claim Cruz made Sunday at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

"You know, I was fascinated to hear that because I haven't heard a thing about it from him. Nor has my staff heard from his staff. Where did that come from? I have not a clue," McCain, who chairs the Armed Services Committee, told reporters Monday, according to The Hill.

He added that he would be "glad to discuss the issue" with Cruz to see if there should be a hearing.

But Cruz's assertion Sunday that he has been "pressing" McCain for a hearing came as a "complete surprise" to the Arizona senator and one-time GOP presidential nominee.

"Maybe it was through some medium that I'm not familiar with. Maybe bouncing it off the ozone layer, for all I know," McCain said according to The Hill. "There's a lot of holes in the ozone layer, so maybe it wasn't the ozone layer that he bounced it off of. Maybe it was through hand telegraph, maybe sign language, who knows?"

Cruz acknowledged Tuesday that he had "misspoken" when he told an audience at a hunting club in New Hampshire that he has been "pressing" McCain to call hearings on the issue, which he said he was "very concerned about."

"I will acknowledge I may have misspoken in New Hampshire when I said that I've been pressing John McCain and that what I have been pressing is the Armed Services Committee and John McCain is the new chairman of it," Cruz said Tuesday on Fox News.

Conservative activists and legislators aligned with Cruz have been calling for the reversal of a policy forbidding service members from carrying a personal firearm on military facilities, claiming that service members should be better equipped to protect themselves from incidents like the Navy Yard and Fort Hood mass shootings.

"I think it's very important to have a public discussion about why we're denying our soldiers the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights," Cruz told the group Sunday, Politico reported.

Cruz clarified that he hasn't been pressing McCain directly on the issue but pointed out that he has raised the issue publicly in the last year at hearings and sent a letter last year to then-Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan) about holding hearings.

Cruz's office said Cruz is drafting a similar letter to McCain.

"Senator Cruz has been discussing this issue for a long time and he looks forward to continuing to raise it in the Senate Armed Services Committee where he serves with Chairman McCain," Cruz spokeswoman Amanda Carpenter told CNN in an email Tuesday.

Cruz, a first-term senator elected on a tea party wave, has often butted heads with establishment Republicans like McCain who see Cruz's unflinching postures as unproductive to passing legislation.

Shortly after Cruz's clarification, McCain tweeted that Cruz "is a friend and valued member of the Senate Armed Services Committee."


But McCain has made it quite clear that Cruz won't get his support during the Republican presidential primary. But that's not just because the two have butted heads.

McCain has said he would support a bid by Sen. Lindsey Graham, McCain's closest friend in the Senate, if he decides to run. Graham said this weekend he is "91% sure" he'll make a run for the White House, challenging Cruz and others in a crowded GOP field.

As McCain joked about Cruz's claim, Cruz also took to humor -- laughing off McCain's response.

"Oh I like John McCain," Cruz said Tuesday. "He can always be counted on for a good quote.

Thank you CNN for picking up this post in line visible on your page. Once CNN picks up a post the other big 4 are soon to follow, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and of course the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal the big two of print media. From there the Internet News services Like Google News and  Yahoo News follow. Once the algorithms start clicking in America the overseas press follows as in the Hong Kong Daily Secret, China Times, Moscow Times, Stern Magazine, and The Financial Times of India. After that these posts go viral and never go away and are forever a permanent record on the internet of America gone stupid at the hands of intellectual cowards afraid to make an argument for anything.

AMERICA RIOTS, BURNS AND SELF DESTRUCTS, as the battle for the GOP, RNC, Republican Leadership of fools gets down and dirty in a vicious exchange of brutal word slinging between grown men behaving like 5 year old boys afraid they may get spanked publicly if they even "Think" of pushing or shoving, let alone, hitting, kicking, bitting, throwing sand, spitting, scratching, eye poking, screaming, hair pulling, smacking, or any kind of overt determined public displays of focused power. They are hiding in a cowards game of keeping the public from knowing what they really think, believe and want you to do for them.  

Please, afraid to use words to  win an argument or make a point. Afraid is the operative word, afraid to use words to get rid of dangerous idiots destroying the fabric of a nation. That applies to entrenched corrupted bureaucrats on both sides of the isle. The pussy footing soft peddling passive aggressive dishonesty of the last election is not going to fly this time as the American public is looking to cleanse house with  bloody fight in the arena of ideas. The doomed yuppy quest for perfection has yield generations adult children and psychologically hardened corrupted old fools faking nice.

I can't read passed the word "Pressed" in the copy/paste article below. The sisification of America goes on as the ill tempered battle hardened tortured John McCain plays the passive aggressive card of fake civility in the dirty game of niceries to bulling your way to the public "Tit" of endless milk, honey and blood money. 

The four most dangerous men in America have been, are and will continue to be 1)John McCain (Mr. bad judgement Keating Five, S and L bail Bush senior fraudsters that started it all at a cost of US involvement in World War Two setting the stage for the TARP bail out written up as exempt from all laws past and future) 2) Mitch McConnell  (2.9 billion dollar earmark sell out back stabber on the Obama Care Health Care rip off to riches) 3)John Boehner ( week kneed, lack luster, can not make an argument, refuses to do his job, will not fight, lost opportunity, squandered position, looser of losers leader of losers) 4) US Supreme Court Idiot John Roberts ( thinks he can rewrite a case before the court essentially writing legislation rather than do his job and  rule on the case as presented to the court by striking it down) 

The reason they are the four most dangerous men in America is because they are supposed to know better and because they have made a life out of putting themselves forward as knowing better but when push comes to shove they fail to stand on the principles they say they represent and resort to self interest driven politics that makes them all exactly what they say they are not. This intellectually corrupted bought and paid for Republican Leadership is equally corrupt in principle as the "Clinton Cash" for influence peddling or the dangerous fear based identity driven usury of this administration of con-men and women. 

Americans do not see America as the corrupt nation it has become simply because the actors on the stage refuse to get real and make it real or make it personal as there is just to much personal reward in the game of smoke and mirrors. Bureaucrats.

Washington (CNN)John McCain says he has no idea what Ted Cruz is talking about -- again.

McCain, the Arizona senator who once called Cruz a "whacko bird," said the Texas senator running for president never pressed him to hold hearings about whether soldiers should be allowed to carry a personal firearm on military bases -- a claim Cruz made Sunday at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

"You know, I was fascinated to hear that because I haven't heard a thing about it from him. Nor has my staff heard from his staff. Where did that come from? I have not a clue," McCain, who chairs the Armed Services Committee, told reporters Monday, according to The Hill.

He added that he would be "glad to discuss the issue" with Cruz to see if there should be a hearing.

But Cruz's assertion Sunday that he has been "pressing" McCain for a hearing came as a "complete surprise" to the Arizona senator and one-time GOP presidential nominee.

"Maybe it was through some medium that I'm not familiar with. Maybe bouncing it off the ozone layer, for all I know," McCain said according to The Hill. "There's a lot of holes in the ozone layer, so maybe it wasn't the ozone layer that he bounced it off of. Maybe it was through hand telegraph, maybe sign language, who knows?"

Cruz acknowledged Tuesday that he had "misspoken" when he told an audience at a hunting club in New Hampshire that he has been "pressing" McCain to call hearings on the issue, which he said he was "very concerned about."

"I will acknowledge I may have misspoken in New Hampshire when I said that I've been pressing John McCain and that what I have been pressing is the Armed Services Committee and John McCain is the new chairman of it," Cruz said Tuesday on Fox News.

Conservative activists and legislators aligned with Cruz have been calling for the reversal of a policy forbidding service members from carrying a personal firearm on military facilities, claiming that service members should be better equipped to protect themselves from incidents like the Navy Yard and Fort Hood mass shootings.

"I think it's very important to have a public discussion about why we're denying our soldiers the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights," Cruz told the group Sunday, Politico reported.

Cruz clarified that he hasn't been pressing McCain directly on the issue but pointed out that he has raised the issue publicly in the last year at hearings and sent a letter last year to then-Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan) about holding hearings.

Cruz's office said Cruz is drafting a similar letter to McCain.

"Senator Cruz has been discussing this issue for a long time and he looks forward to continuing to raise it in the Senate Armed Services Committee where he serves with Chairman McCain," Cruz spokeswoman Amanda Carpenter told CNN in an email Tuesday.

Cruz, a first-term senator elected on a tea party wave, has often butted heads with establishment Republicans like McCain who see Cruz's unflinching postures as unproductive to passing legislation.

Shortly after Cruz's clarification, McCain tweeted that Cruz "is a friend and valued member of the Senate Armed Services Committee."


But McCain has made it quite clear that Cruz won't get his support during the Republican presidential primary. But that's not just because the two have butted heads.

McCain has said he would support a bid by Sen. Lindsey Graham, McCain's closest friend in the Senate, if he decides to run. Graham said this weekend he is "91% sure" he'll make a run for the White House, challenging Cruz and others in a crowded GOP field.

As McCain joked about Cruz's claim, Cruz also took to humor -- laughing off McCain's response.

"Oh I like John McCain," Cruz said Tuesday. "He can always be counted on for a good quote.

Thank you CNN for picking up this post in line visible on your page. Once CNN picks up a post the other big 4 are soon to follow, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and of course the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal the big two of print media. From there the Internet News services Like Google News and  Yahoo News follow. Once the algorithms start clicking in America the overseas press follows as in the Hong Kong Daily Secret, China Times, Moscow Times, Stern Magazine, and The Financial Times of India. After that these posts go viral and never go away and are forever a permanent record on the internet of America gone stupid at the hands of intellectual cowards afraid to make an argument for anything.

Israel Approves 1,500 New Jerusalem Settlement Units
The Israeli government has approved the construction of 1,500 new housing units within the Israeli settlement in Jerusalem, this week.

Israeli Channel 10 reported, according to Al Ray, that officials issued instructions for the Jerusalem District Planning and Building committee to build 1,500 settlement units in the "Ramat Shlomo" settlement, north Jerusalem.

The channel added that all obstacles of construction were removed and that things are ready to approve building on Wednesday of this week.

Earlier, the Israeli government had frozen the building plan, following criticism from the US in March of 2010, as it coincided with the visit of US vice president, Joe Biden, to Tel Aviv.

But in Biden’s case, all of this is done for the sake of theater — so that Joe Biden can continue doing his ordinary-guy shtick. Ordinary people have to be inconvenienced so that Joe Biden can pretend to be an ordinary guy. The serfs have to be forcibly reminded of their serfdom — no, you cannot just get off a train in our nation’s capital, willy-nilly and whenever you like, and here’s a man with a gun to make sure! — so that the lords can show us that they’re just like us.
