GOP leaders: National security will end Carson and Trump campaigns

Donald Trump and Ben Carson have demonstrated more staying power than anyone predicted. But now, after the terrorist attacks on an American ally, Republican elders think their party’s flirtation with inexperience is nearing its end.

The reemergence of foreign policy atop the Republican agenda will force voters to reevaluate the outsider candidates, particularly as both Trump and Carson display a lack of knowledge about national security and the terrorist threat, party stalwarts said.

“The losers are going to be Donald Trump and Ben Carson on national security,” said Katon Dawson, the former chairman of the South Carolina GOP. “As the Republican base sobers up, they are the two, if this story lasts a long time, it's going to hurt."

Indeed, in interviews with current and former GOP chairs, veteran operatives, lobbyists and strategists, the long-held conviction that neither Trump nor Carson will win the Republican nomination has only strengthened since the attacks in Paris last week.

Fred Malek, who has advised multiple Republican presidents and is not affiliated with any contender this cycle, said the inexperience Trump and Carson reveal in their rhetoric will drive GOP primary voters toward another candidate.

Bought and paid for!

I believe that the Gop is full of Sheiate, i think Donald at this time could win on a wright in balliot he doesn't need the GOP they Need Him. the People have Had it with both Partys period. i know i have !.

There are many good reply's here but there is another problem no one is talking about.  No matter who wins the nomination of the republican party, the democrats are very busy, and have been for some time, working to make sure a democrat is elected president in 2016.  How?  Look at California who gives drivers licenses to illegals and with this driver license they can vote. I believe there are other states, I do not know which ones, so how many votes will this give the democrats?  And they will not have to even rig the voting machines.   Think about it.


Most of the Republicans and, all of the Demorats in Congress, can't be trusted! One exception; Ted Cruz!!!! 

They have been wrong before.  Oh wait, they are ALWAYS WRONG.

Nothing could be further from the truth than that BS.  The more I hear the crap coming out of the mouths of Kasich and Bush, the stronger is my support for Donald Trump.  

The Republican Party is the party of WIMPS! We need someone to stand up and do what is right...not cower to Obama who is a poor excuse of a leader and President!

The frigging RNC is KILLING their own party, and GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH!

Go Trump 2016!

The GOP is scared to death and they are praying Trump and Carson will be hurt by this. But it won't happen.

Ben Carson Compares Islamic State to America’s Founders

“I always say the truth is best even when we find it unpleasant. Any rat in a sewer can lie. It’s how rats are. It’s what makes them rats. But a human doesn’t run and hide in dark places, because he’s something more. Lying is the most personal act of cowardice there is.” ― Nancy FarmerThe House of the Scorpion

Steve Peoples reports for the AP (via Yahoo) that on Jan. 15, 2015, in a 35-min. luncheon speech to the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting outside San Diego,presidential aspirant Dr. Ben Carson compared ISIS or the Islamic State (who chop off the heads of their enemies, especially Christians) to the patriots of the American Revolution. See FOTM for full story. Here is the video of that speech:

One of my cyber buds called Carson “Shifty.” She said, “The Media is holding back on his top advisor, Armstrong Williams, and the dumbed down public doesn’t see that they’re holding back until Cruz or Rubio can be manipulated into place on the undiscerning electorate.”

Personally, I believe Carson is nothing more than an Obama Junior.


In my previous article, Dr. Ben Carson Teams Up With Al Sharpton, I mentioned Carson’s top advisor, Armstrong Williams wanted Chicago to hire Farrakhan to helps stem violence in the city. Link Remember Louis Farrakhan is the man who has called for retaliation and death to whitey.

Remember too, that Williams recently broadcast his radio show live from Farrakhan’s celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March. Considering the fact that people were responding to Carson’s tough talk about Muslims, this story may be something Carson won’t want getting traction. To top it off, Armstrong wants taxpayers to fund Farrakhan! Link


Add this together with Carson speaking at Al Sharpton’s NAN convention and stating that he and Al Sharpton have the same goalsLink Remember, our momma’s told us, “You’ll be known by the company you keep, and if you lay down with dogs, you’ll get up with fleas.”

American Thinker’s Article, “Ben Carson in His Own Words,” has several of Carson’s statements. [At Yale in the late 1960s],”I was proud to see groups such as the Black Panthers standing up to brutal police tactics, and though I never joined any radical student organizations, I kept abreast of the activities of the Students for a DemocraticSociety (SDS), the Weathermen, and other groups willing to use aggressive tactics to accomplish “social justice.” I’d urge you to read this article in full as Carson’s statements belie the fact that he’s a conservative.


Team Jeb Worked to Talk Up Carson

There were numerous signals that Team Jeb (RNC/GOPe) was working to talk up Carson.

Dana Perino, a die-hard Bush loyalist, has been working this angle for several weeks. Fox news host Megyn Kelly has also been working diligently to promote Carson as a kinder, gentler and more palatable, i.e. less vulgarian, option.

The promotion of Carson specifically targeted Trump supporters –depending on the primary state, the hope was it might work to pull Trump down enough to stop the current momentum. Link

Carson on Illegal Aliens

His latest immigration plan was spelled out at a speech at Liberty University November 11th, and reported by Breitbart.

I would agree with Carson on getting rid of incentives, but law breakers do not belong in our country, many are criminals as well as carrying diseases. The number of 11 to 12 million illegals has been used since Reagan actually gave amnesty to 3 million, and another five of their family members, totaling 15 million. It was a dismal failure. Link The reality is, there are 50 to 60 million illegals in this country with the southern border being a sieve. 

Carson’s position on the value of American citizenship is seriously flawed. He should acknowledge that American citizens have rights too. Dr. Carson has to understand that American citizenship must never be treated like a “tip” for “putting up with us rude Americans who harass people with our laws.” Citizenship is not something people get for “services rendered.”

I fully believe Carson is for full amnesty for all illegal aliens.

Trump has it right…and he’s the only one who does.


Carson to use Department of Education as his hammer

Sounding more like his would-be predecessor, Dr. Ben Carson said he has no intention of getting rid of the Dept. of Education. Instead, he would remake it into a policing-type organization that monitors the speech of professors and others at universities and colleges to ensure that bias is not practiced. Suffice it to say, this would be bias which Dr. Carson considers to be bias and the definition could—and likely would—change as does the good doctor’s whims. This is totalitarian thinking, folks…and it’s chillingly coming from Dr. Carson. Link

To top it off, Carson says that children in schools learning about actual American history might make the students want to join ISIS! He is speaking at the Center for Security Policy’s National Security Action Summit.

Carson is all for the TPP!


Carson proclaimed that he supported the Obama White House in its plan to force theTrans-Pacific Partnership down the throats of US citizens…a deal that would provide one of the last nails in the coffin of US sovereignty. Ben acts as though he’s a staunch conservative, but he leans more and more towards Marxism. (The prayer breakfast attended by Carson, where he made such a good showing as a conservative, is run by Doug Coe’s secretive “The Fellowship” or “The Family.” They have such members of so-called opposite political stances as DeMint and Hillary Clinton. Link See Constance Cumbey’s five part article entitled, “The Family, and its hijacking of Evangelicalism.”) We have towatch what people do, not just listen to what they say. Ben Carson said that he supports the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement negotiated by the White House – aligning himself more with the GOP’s establishment wing than with the social conservatives who have powered his campaign. Link

Carson says he wants to level the playing field, and he likes Free Trade for that reason, but what he’s saying is the playing field is leveling America down to a third world country.Link

More and more, Dr. Carson really is looking like a Trojan Horse. The media is not vetting Carson for reasons I explained in my previous article, Christians Lack of Discernment.


Carson certainly looks to be another globalist with friends like C. Boyden Gray (skull & bones presidential counsel to Bush) and Cain (Federal Reserve).

Carson’s Support of Death Panels

Twenty years ago, Dr. Carson had his own ideas about how to reform health care in America. Some of those ideas may surprise you.

Buzzfeed reporter Andrew Kaczynski wrote a story about Carson’s 1996 proposal, and some of the “radical” elements it contains. Among them:

  • Government run catastrophic health care.
  • A computerized national medical records database.
  • Food stamp-like “health care vouchers” for the poor.
  • National care guidelines for the terminally ill.

The Affordable Care Act puts insurance companies firmly in the driver’s seat in terms of health care, provided they agree to follow a simple set of government rules. But Carson’s proposal for a catastrophic health care fund would have given the government control over care in that area. The government’s catastrophic care program would be funded by mandatory contributions from insurance company profits. Carson writes, “Such a fund would be supported by a mandatory contribution of approximately 10 to 15 percent of profits of each health insurance company, including managed care operations.”

Does that sound like “a government takeover” to anyone?

Carson wrote in 1996, Decisions on who should be treated and who should not be treated clearly requires some national guidelines and obviously should be made based on the viability of the patient rather than the age of the patient. There are clearly many 90-year-old individuals who are healthier than some 40 or 50-year-old individuals and certainly medical treatment should not be withheld if there is a reasonable chance of recovery and resumption of a normal lifestyle. If a patient insisted on having everything done, consideration of more aggressive treatment should be given.”

Does “national guidelines” for who should and should not be treated, sound like “death panels” to you?

Here is a list of Carson’s comments on health care. Carson wants to regulate insurance like non-profits. Scroll down and read “Government responsibility for catastrophic coverage” being government responsibility. Then scroll to “Let paralyzed quadriplegics choose to die if they wish it,” and removing the ventilator.

Carson’s current opinions in this area are rather different than what he wrote in 1996. Still, it gives me the willies that a person of his position could advocate for something like national care guidelines, especially in a medical journal. If he changed his mind once, what’s to keep him from changing it again?


Carson originally proposed to scrap Medicare and Medicaid entirely—a genuinely radical idea, and one with massive policy and political risks. Under his plan, every American would receive a cradle-to-grave health savings account with an annual $2,000 government subsidy, which family members could share. But after the third debate two weeks ago, Carson began running away from that old idea, which had been coming under increasing attack by fellow Republicans, particularly Donald Trump who said, “Ben wants to get rid of Medicare. You can’t get rid of Medicare. It would be a terrible thing to get rid of.”

The mere fact that the MSM and politicians refer to Medicare and Social Security as an entitlement absolutely infuriates me. American citizens have PAID into SS since 1937, and into Medicare since 1966. We were forced to give the government our money in exchange for a promise from them. However, they feel free to “cut” those benefits and promises anytime they wish, but never cut the giveaways to illegals, to those who don’t work, and to the entire welfare community.

It would take decades to eliminate Medicare/Medicaid, by attrition and funding. Too many baby boomers rely on Medicare today, a fund they’ve paid into all their lives! The reality is this, Medicare and Medicaid should never have been started, but it was passed into law on July 30, 1965, and beneficiaries were first able to sign-up for the program on July 1, 1966.


Carson and Multi-Level Marketing

Check out Carson’s long involvement with Mannatech, a multi-level marketing organization who claimed their vitamin products cured AIDS, cancer, ALS, autism, etc. In 2007, Texas charged Mannatech with an unlawful marketing scheme that exaggerated health benefits. Link In 2009, Texas reached an agreement: Mannatech paid $4 million in restitution to customers while admitting no wrongdoing, and was prohibited from saying that their products can cure disease. Yet Carson’s interactions with the company continued for five more years. Link In fact, in March of 2014, Carson was still doing infomercials for the company.

Dr. Carson’s Beliefs

Dr. Carson stated, “We believe the revelation and inspiration of both the Bible and Ellen White’s writings to be of equal quality.” Adventist Ministry magazine of October 1981. Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist (SDA).

The doctor has been taken to task for stating the pyramids were for storing grain. He must have been thinking of Joseph. The Book of Genesis tells that Joseph was the 11th of Jacob‘s 12 sons and Rachel‘s firstborn, and tells how Joseph came to be sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, and rose to become vizier: the second most powerful man in Egypt next to Pharaoh. When famine struck Canaan, Jacob (Joseph’s father) and Joseph’s brothers came to the Land of Goshen in Egypt, and pleaded for food. Joseph had stored up plenty, but not in the pyramids. The pyramids were burial tombs of the pharaohs.

The SDA church does not believe in combat. When conscripted, they serve in other capacities. I have no problem with this, except I wonder how an SDA member could lead the nation as “Commander in Chief.”

Ellen G. White, founder of the SDA church, stated many condemnations if a parishioner does not tithe his 10%. Link
This is where Carson’s 10% flat tax/tithe program comes from. Remember he proposed this in the first debate.

In my article, The Absolute Joy of Giving, I explained the actual Mosaic Law of tithing.When people pull certain verses out of context and then misapply what they have pulled out of context, you end up with false doctrine.

Founder Ellen White made many predictions of the return of Christ. None of the predictions ever came true. We must conclude on the basis of Deut. 18:21-23 that she was a false prophet. She never called herself a prophet, but rather a messenger.

Mrs. White claimed to have received more than 3,000 “inspired counsels from the Lord” (i.e., visions) between 1844 and 1868. (From these “visions,” she produced over 100,000 handwritten manuscript pages from which were published 54 books!) Therefore, SDAs have a new source of authority in their lives — according to SDA’s dogma, if an SDA does not accept Mrs. White as infallible, they have no salvation!

What does Revelation say about adding to or subtracting from the Word of God?Revelation 22:18-19 is quite clear. If anyone adds to the Word, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book, God shall take away his part out of the book of life…

More on the SDA church.

More on Ben

There is so much more on this man, but the flavor is all the same. Here are some examples:

I agree wholeheartedly with Devvy Kidd’s latest article, Dr. Carson will never get my vote either. I’ll stand with the only candidate who has the acumen to run the nation, and the chutzpah to defeat Hillary Clinton, Mr. Donald Trump. And guess what? Breitbart reports, Trump surges to 42% nationally.

Devvy Kidd had a spectacular article on Carson entitled,” Dr. Ben Carson Won’t Get My Vote.” If you haven’t read it, it is quite enlightening. And there’s more!

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:


(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
