Ben Carson and Donald Trump: The Accidental Bully and the Oscar Wilde Gentleman

The GOP has a reputation for being filled with a bunch of great big old meanies. In the past few days, Donald Trump and Ben Carson have been both accidentally and intentionally feeding that reputation. Let’s begin with poor Ben Carson who, in an apparent attempt to create rapport with a group of fifth-graders, encouraged them to point out the worst student in their class. Carson has long told a story about how he himself was the worst student in fifth grade, but this attempt to relate that Read more […]

What One Lesbian’s Unanswered Question to Ben Carson Can Teach Us

A woman waded through the crowds at a Town Hall meeting in New York to ask Ben Carson just one question. She had thought long and hard on this question to maximize its impact. She was after all going to be talking to the man who just might be the next president of the United States. So, of course, she made some pointed inquiry concerning Carson’s political philosophy, right? Not so much. She didn’t ask Carson anything about himself. Instead, she asked Carson a question about herself. And it was Read more […]

Video: Trump Compares Carson to Child Molester

There’s a point in a presidential race where a candidate can go too far, and Trump has been way past that line from the beginning. Here he is, comparing his rival Ben Carson to a child molester: I understand why people like Trump. His appeal with voters stems from the fact that he isn’t beholden to the same special interests that your stereotypical politician is beholden to. For this reason, he can mouth off about everything in D.C. and the media without fear of retribution. Well, he’ll Read more […]

In the Midst of Media’s Unfair Treatment, Ben Carson Raises $3.5 Million

While the media are busy trying to track down Ben Carson’s kindergarten teacher to unearth his next scandal, his campaign brought in $3.5 million from some 70,000 donors. He also garnered another 100,000 Facebook fans. This all happened in the week that the media really started to pile on him.

Next Ben Carson Scandal: “He Peed his Pants in Kindergarten!”

First, the media accused presidential candidate Ben Carson of concocting stories of his violent youth. Then, Politico ran a story about how he “lied” about his West Point scholarship offer in his book Gifted Hands. They claimed that the Carson campaign “conceded” that he lied. But Carson said that was a “bold-faced lie.” He didn’t “concede” anything. He recalls being invited to a big event in Detroit and having dinner with General Westmoreland who told the then-17-year-old Ben Carson Read more […]

CNN Smears Ben Carson by Saying he Wasn’t Actually Violent When he was Young

If the media did the same thing to the Clintons and to Barack Obama, there would be no shortage of fodder to cast the Clintons and the President in the most negative light possible. It wouldn’t be difficult. In fact, it would be way too easy. But the media would never betray a friend like that. A conservative like Ben Carson makes himself an easy target to the media, especially since he has the wrong color skin to be a conservative. The latest “scandal” Ben Carson is involved in is Read more […]

Ted Cruz: “Climate Change is Not Science – It’s Religion”

Liberals hate hearing this, but deep down, they know it’s the truth. The theory of manmade global warming, or climate change, or period of increased climatic unpredictability, is not actually based on science. It’s not unlike a belief in a false religion. Their main premise is their belief that humans are causing the earth to heat up at a rapid pace. That’s their first premise. Then all the data they accumulate are then squeezed and twisted in order to fit in that first premise. Then their Read more […]

Ben Carson on Abortion: No Exceptions for Rape or Incest

In an interview with Meet the Press, Chuck Todd asked Ben Carson about whether there should be exceptions for abortion, such as in cases where babies are conceived as a result of rape or incest. He responded: “Rape and incest, I would not be in favor of killing a baby because the baby came about in that way. And all you have to do is go and look up the many stories of people who have led very useful lives who were the result of rape or incest.” Less than 1% of all abortions are performed on Read more […]

Ben Carson is Right About Gun Control, and the Left is Going Crazy

Remember yesterday when I criticized Drew Magary, the intellectually challenged writer from GQ? It’s happening again. Another member of the GQ brain trust has decided to attack Ben Carson. Now, I’m no Carson apologist, but like Magary, GQ’s Jack Moore doesn’t seem to fully understand what words mean, and it frustrates me. In an article titled “Ben Carson Reaches Peak Crazy, Says Dead Bodies Are Preferable to Gun Control,” Moore recounts a recent Facebook Q&A in which Carson said: “The first Read more […]

GQ Pathetically Tries to Attack Ben Carson

“Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.” – Euripides The mainstream media has begun to turn their attention away from Donald Trump. The focus has recently shifted to the rising stars of the Republican field, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. The media’s searching for any misstep or perceived misstep that can be amplified in order to obliterate the candidates’ credibility in the minds of low-information voters. Because Ben Carson is currently the fastest running horse in the race, the media Read more […]

Lib Professor: Ben Carson Deserves “Coon of the Year Award”

Can you even imagine what kind of response a professor would have gotten for saying something like this about Obama? Republicans don’t even have to say anything offensive like this in order to be mistreated. The media take their quotes out of context all the time, and conservatives get skewered all because their critics distort what they actually said. Liberals can be as blatantly nasty and racist all they want, and they’re allowed to be. The media pretend not to notice. This, from Breitbart: Dr. Read more […]
