  • Ben Carson: If people had been armed, Hitler’s power to achieve would have been “greatly diminished”

    The man certainly does know his way around a Hitler hypothetical. Just ask his own campaign manager. “It’s an example [Carson] has been using for years and to be honest with you he needs to find a better example because the problem is as soon as you say Hitler, nobody hears anything else you say,” Campaign Manager Barry Bennett told ABC News. “Its just so evil, so contemptible, that no one can hear anything else.” Believe it or not, that comment was in reference not to what Carson said yesterday on CNN about gun control in the Third Reich...
  • The Media's Latest Phony Attack on Ben Carson

    How about the next time the mainstream media decide to fabricate a controversy against a conservative presidential candidate, they choose something less laughable? The media's latest faux gasp concerns Dr. Ben Carson's comments about the Oregon school shooting. When I first watched news reports on it, I didn't immediately grasp the reason for the fuss, not having the artificial sensibilities of the MSM. Asked what he would do in a similar situation as the victims, Carson said: "I would ask everybody to attack the gunman because he can only shoot one of us at a time. That way, we don't...

    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has suggested that Barack Obama was not a “real black” president in a tweet praising Republican candidate Ben Carson on Wednesday night. Murdoch, who has repeatedly praised Carson in recent months, tweeted: “Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black president who can properly address the racial divide? And much else.” He then directed followers to an article in New York magazine that he said showed “minority community disappointment” with the president’s record. However, his earlier tweet directly implied that Obama, whose mother was a white American and whose father was a Kenyan studying...

    Common sense apparently does strange things to some progressive minds. Yesterday morning, speaking on Fox and Friends, Ben Carson said of a mass-shooting situation, “I would not just stand there and let him shoot me. I would say, ‘Hey guys, everybody attack him. He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.’” The New York Times declared that his statement was “drawing widespread rebuke from his critics and reviving questions about his candidacy.” ABC News asked him to “clarify” his statement, leading to this rather amusing exchange: ABC: Dr. Carson can you clarify your statements on the Oregon shooting?...

    Republican candidate Ben Carson continued his controversial remarks about guns Thursday -- suggesting in a new interview that the Jews may have been able to diminish the likelihood of the Holocaust if they were armed. Carson made the remarks, which drew swift condemnation -- on CNN. He said that passengers on Flight 93, which crashed on 9/11, helped avoid further tragedy by rushing the gunman. In Carson's new book “A Perfect Union,” Carson writes that “through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.”(continued)

    Rather than cooperate, Democrats from the start have tried to thwart the Benghazi probe from within, Chairman Trey Gowdy said in a letter released Thursday that accused Democrats of bad faith and also announced the release of emails that call into question the relationship between former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and her associate Sidney Blumenthal. Mr. Gowdy said it was Democrats, not Republicans, who “selectively leaked information” to try to set the political narrative about the probe. Mr. Gowdy said Democrats have been more interested in that than in actually participating in the investigation, and he accused the...

    Hillary Clinton used her private email account to pass along the identity of one of the CIA’s top Libyan intelligence sources, raising new questions about her handling of classified information, according to excerpts from previously undisclosed emails released Thursday by Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. On March 18, 2011, Sidney Blumenthal — Clinton’s longtime friend and political adviser — sent the then secretary of state an email to her private account that contained apparently highly sensitive information he had received from Tyler Drumheller, a former top CIA official with whom Blumenthal at...

    This story was more or less lost in the noise of yesterday's palace intrigue, but it's too important to simply let lie.  Do yourself a favor and click through to Gowdy's letter before proceeding any further. Read the entire thing. It's extraordinary, on several levels: First, Gowdy summons his prosecutorial vigor to absolutely demolish the ranking Democrat on the House Select Committee on Benghazi.  Democrats have seized upon erstwhile Speaker-in-waiting Kevin McCarthy's ill-advised comments to try to shut down the panel's probe -- a continuation of their ongoing, partisan efforts to dismiss its focus as a "phony scandal" and to portray the investigation as a political witch hunt.  Gowdy...

    The reason Rep. Kevin McCarthy abruptly pulled his name from the running for the job as House speaker Thursday may be exactly as he explained – his untoward comments attributing a political purpose to a House committee investigating Benghazi. Or it may have been something else – as speculation swirled on Thursday about an alleged affair with another member of Congress. And if that was the case, one report is suggesting people look to the Obama administration for a level of involvement. Because the trail could link back to the administration’s Department of Homeland Security.

Rep.

The resolution was ruled out of order, and members voted to table an appeal of the...

But in an interview with USA Today published Sunday, Bernanke said he thinks that in addition to the corporations, individuals should have been held more accountable....

It concerned an event in the U.S. hosted by the National Iranian American Council. “Would USG have...

  • No 'Mainstream' Air Time for Mark Levin

    09/11/2015 1:59:22 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 29 replies ^ | September 11, 2015 | Brent Bozell
    Mark Levin's new book "Plunder and Deceit" has been number one on the New York Times bestseller list for five weeks in a row. Like with his other best-sellers, no liberal journalist will read it, no liberal newspaper will review it, and no liberal network would imagine calling up Levin for an interview. They are too busy advocating tolerance and diversity. Why doesn't Mark Levin deserve a turn on CBS's "60 Minutes"? Why can't the conservative taxpayers be granted a forum for Levin or "Charlie Rose" on PBS or on NPR's "All Things Considered"? In short, why not a slice...

    David Brock’s war against the New York Times just went nuclear — and the paper is responding with equal fury. Brock, the former right-wing journalist-turned-pro-Clinton crusader, takes aim at a top New York Times editor in a soon-to-be released book obtained by POLITICO. In the book, titled "Killing the Messenger: The Right-Wing Plot to Derail Hillary Clinton and Hijack Your Government,” Brock accuses senior politics editor and former Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan of helping to turn the paper into a “megaphone for conservative propaganda” by unfairly targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The founder of liberal watchdog groups...

    Fourteen years after the September 11, 2001 attacks, one of the last, great mysteries surrounding the terrorist attacks on America has yet to be unmasked - parts of the Congressional probe that have been kept secret from the public under two U.S. administrations.

    For half a century, the U.S. has taken in the vast majority of the world's refugees. Isn't it somebody else's turn? Among the benefits of Donald Trump's proposed immigration moratorium is that we won't have to keep importing hordes of Third World "refugees," such as the ones currently swarming across Europe. For decades, the United States has taken in far more refugees than the entire rest of the world combined. Nearly half of the refugees we take in are Muslim. And it's worked out great! Fazliddin Kurbanov, or "Idaho man," as he is dutifully described in the American media, was...

    Facing a congressional subpoena, a former State Department staffer connected to Hillary Clinton's private email server has decided to invoke his Fifth Amendment right.
