  • Dems, not Jeff Sessions, have the real race problem

    Armstrong Williams op-ed: Dems, not Jeff Sessions, have the real race problem © Getty It is an unfortunate truth that Democrats are not the examples of diversity and inclusion as much as they claim. They portray themselves as the righteous warriors of truth and conviction, and they actually believe this “truth” to be self-evident. But we must all ask ourselves, particularly as they take the moral high ground while launching a thousand ships of claims of racism against Senator Jeff Sessions, are they truly demi-gods of morality or just puppeteers attempting to pull all of our string? It's the latter,...

    LA Times ^ | Nov. 22, 2016 | Chris Megerian
    Donald Trump asked Ben Carson to consider serving as secretary of Housing and Urban Development, an advisor to the former Republican presidential candidate said Tuesday. They discussed the potential job at a meeting in the morning and Carson is "seriously considering" it, said the advisor, Armstrong Williams. "It’s a role that plays to Dr. Carson’s passions," he said. Asked what qualifications the retired neurosurgeon has for overseeing housing policy, Williams said: “Dr. Carson has experience with everything. You’d be shocked at the depth of his experience.”

    According to Dr. Ben Carson's business manager Armstrong Williams, Dr. Ben Carson will not serve in President-elect Donald Trump's administration, a separate source confirmed that Carson was being offered a position as Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). Williams told Circa that Dr. Carson thinks he can, "best serve the President outside the administration."

    All the pomp and circumstance has passed. The balloons have fallen, and the conventions are over and through. Expect to see a bounce for Secretary Clinton that essentially wipes away the bump Donald Trump received in the hours and days following his Cleveland closeout. Yes, now is the time in the presidential election cycle for the proverbial pivot - the shift to full campaign mode in which each side bunkers down and prepares for the onslaught of war. The team that makes the fewest mistakes in this episode wins.I love these times. They test the political mettle of a candidate....

    Bernie Sanders’ appeal among young people has increasingly focused on delivering the supposed benefits a socialist society can give them; free education, free health care, and a government-mandated ‘living wage.’ But his vision for a socialist utopia flies in the face of reason – and the saddening saga of socialism in Europe. Sanders’ latest missive accusing Senator Mitch McConnell of denying pensions to coal miners in Kentucky, West Virginia and Pennsylvania typifies a fervent belief that the government can be a cure to all ills. The coal industry has been hit hard over recent years – in particular because of...

    The American People are angry. And it is not cyclical anger – after all, we are sitting at the top of the current business cycle. This anger is a secular trend. There is anger at the lack of jobs, there is anger over class warfare , there is anger at police profiling of young black men, anger at conservatives, anger at political correctness, anger at Liberals, anger at the break down of our inner city infrastructures and the poisoning of water in Flint, Michigan and elsewhere, anger at Hillary Rodham Clinton, anger at Donald Trump, anger at the main...
  • Top Advisor Armstrong Wiliams Confirms Dr. Ben Carson Quitting After Super Tuesday?

    Poitical Insider ^ | 2.24.16 | Bill Cunningham
    In a shocking move, Armstrong Williams, who is Dr. Ben Carson’s closest political advisor, dropped hints exclusively with Breitbart News that Carson will drop out immediately after the Super Tuesday Primary. The stunning revelation came during an interview with host Stephen Bannon, after Williams attacked the rest of the GOP field for “dirty tricks” and using “scorched earth tactics” against an honorable man. This is a political earthquake, as the GOP establishment tries to figure out how to defeat conservative businessman Donald J. Trump: “While we’re heading to Super Tuesday next week, I think as I’ve said in an op-ed...

    Carson’s team has yet to produce corroborating emails to prove their allegations. It still remains possible, given that reports just past midnight might suggest Carson may well drop out. Speculation abounded Monday night that GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson might drop out of the race, after news broke that Carson was not sticking around in Iowa to wait out caucus results, nor heading directly to New Hampshire or South Carolina for the next primaries on the calendar. The Carson campaign, now involved in another PR nightmare, had to dispel the rumors later today by blaming everyone but what the doctor...

    politico.com ^ | Kyle Cheney
    On Thanksgiving night, Ben Carson sat in a chartered plane on a Baltimore airport tarmac surrounded by his wife and campaign advisers. The destination: Jordan. A secret mission to the Middle East, his team hoped, would help reestablish the retired neurosurgeon's credibility amid searing questions about his shaky grasp of foreign policy. The trip would be kept under wraps until Carson appeared on the Sunday news shows from the location -- partly a security measure, partly a political play. But as Carson and his team awaited takeoff, they were blindsided when The New York Times posted a story outlining the...

    PELLA, Iowa - Amid tanking poll numbers and a campaign shake-up, supporters swarmed three Ben Carson events on an icy Wednesday in Iowa, suggesting that the retired-pediatric-neurosurgeon-turned-Republican-presidential-candidate may still have what it takes to do well in the state's kingmaker caucuses. More than 150 supporters showed up in Panora, a small town of just 1,100, and so many supporters gathered at a small Winterset cafe that Carson gave a second, shorter town hall for those who couldn't fit in the room for the scheduled event. More than 350 attended an event in Pella on Wednesday evening, filling dozens of seats...

    Brietbart's Big Government ^ | January 1, 2016 | Matthew Boyle
    Armstrong Williams, a close confidant and business manager for Dr. Ben Carson, told Breitbart News exclusively on Friday that Carson is confident he will re-emerge as a formidable candidate, place top three in Iowa, and win South Carolina--and eventually win the GOP nomination in 2016. "He remains in control," Williams said in a phone interview. "He made the changes that were necessary to give him the best chance to surge again to place first, second or third in Iowa, to win South Carolina, and establish the necessary momentum to win the GOP nomination." Both Carson campaign manager Barry Bennett and...
  • Republican Ben Carson's campaign manager, 20 staff quit

    12/31/2015 3:56:26 PM PST · by springwater13 · 41 replies
    U.S. Republican Ben Carson's 2016 presidential bid was thrown into chaos on Thursday when his campaign manager and some 20 other staff members quit amid infighting, dropping poll numbers and negative media coverage. Barry Bennett, who oversaw Carson's rapid rise to the top tier of Republican contenders and his later fall, said he quit over differences with another top adviser to Carson, Armstrong Williams. Specifically, Bennett blamed Williams for an interview Carson gave last week to The Washington Post suggesting that the campaign was in disarray. "It's one of the stupidest things I've ever seen a candidate do," Bennett said....

    This is the smartest possible response from a man who's admired by voters for his piety and service as a healer. He turned the other cheek: "It's so sad watching and listening to him," Armstrong Williams said on CNN's "New Day." "I mean, a man who is so accomplished, who has been so blessed, but yet cannot fathom why Dr. Carson or anyone else would be doing better than he in the presidential race right now.""He just cannot accept leading from behind," Mr. Williams said. "He cannot accept being challenged. He cannot reconcile how this is happening. Obviously, he only...

    Coach is Right ^ | 11/2/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    This is a story that contrasts the managerial skill of Ben Carson with that of Donald Trump. It is very unlikely Trump would handle this the same way Carson is handling it. It might have gone under the radar of the mainstream media, but the blogosphere has told an interesting story about one of Ben Carson’s advisers that directly reflects on the presidential candidate’s ability to hire quality people to help him administer his affairs. Given his public questioning of Muslims’ suitability to hold positions of trust, it is not insignificant that a top adviser of Carson has called for...

    Ben Carson says a Muslim should not be president. But his key adviser, Armstrong Williams, has, unbeknownst to the good doctor’s supporters, been praising Louis Farrakhan — even urging Chicago to hire Nation of Islam security guards to fight crime. Quite the Farrakhan aficionado, Williams had promised to broadcast his radio show live from the hate monger’s 20th anniversary Million Man March last Saturday, recalling to the Washington Times that, “It was a moving experience [in 1995], so I want to be there again.” In a little-noticed Times column the day after the march, “To Curb Chicago Violence Bring in...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/23/2015
    Morton Klein of the Zionist Organization of America is calling on presidential candidate Ben Carson to sever ties with his longtime confidante, business manager and top outside campaign adviser, Armstrong Williams. On October 5 Williams penned a barely-noticed article for The Hill titled "The Nation of Islam Could Be Chicago's savior.” On October 19, Townhall reprinted the same piece but this time with a different title: "To Curb Chiraq Violence, Bring in the NOI." Williams calls on his readers to distinguish between “moderate” NOI-ers and the more virulent “extremists,’ spouting “inflammatory rhetoric” like Farrakhan. According to Williams, the organization’s partnership...

    Donald Trump's claim that as President he would build a wall between Mexico and the U.S. and make Mexico pay for it has the political establishment fuming. Dana Perino, co-host of The Five on Fox News was practically foaming at the mouth over the idea. Perino is an ayatollah of the Bushiban who offers little to the show except regurgitated establishment talking points and mindless defense of anything any Bush says or does. On Tuesday Perino had the following exchange with co-host Eric Bolling. Mr. Bolling said Trump "was not afraid to take shots at other countries. He took shots...

    Dr. Ben Carson, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner and legendary neurosurgeon, is now in the spotlight for his keynote address to the National Prayer Breakfast on February 7. It’s not brain surgery to figure out why. Most notable was his criticism of Obamacare, one of the worst federal laws in decades, and one which, before its complete implementation, is already destroying our economy on a massive scale. Dr. Carson, relying on decades of medical experience, proposed health savings accounts for every American, which would fix two enormous problems in our system today: (1) regressive intergenerational transfers of wealth, and (2)...

    As many of you know, "The Savage Nation" used to air in its entirety in Washington, DC on 730AM - WTNT. Since January 1st, 2012, the first live hour of the show (6-7pm) has been replaced by "The Armstrong Williams Show" (which is taped). At 7:06pm, Dr. Savage and "The Savage Nation" returns to the WTNT airwaves. So therefore, Armstrong's show lasts only one hour. This makes me MAD because WTNT removed Dr. Savage from the first live hour (6-7pm), which is the MOST IMPORTANT HOUR OF THE SHOW -- aside from the fact that it's the one hour where...
