    If I have any accurate arrows of faith or pragmatic hope left in my quiver, then I am correct in thinking that Donald Trump made this decision a long time ago, and the Vice President nominee has long known exactly what the plan is. If my “begin with the end in mind” thinking is incorrect; well, then we’re in bigger trouble than 99% of MAGA Americans can fathom. ... I’m not looking at the current landscape, I’m out here with a well-worn machete looking at where we are heading. And I’m telling you those same systems, voices and financial networks...

    The need for stability and experience should eliminate the young MAGA-in-a-hurry types like Sen. J.D. Vance or Members of the House. As the GOP convention nears, and voters focus on the election, the race remains closer than it should be given Mr. Biden’s infirmities. Swing voters still worry about Mr. Trump and the possibility of four more years of turmoil. The former President can help his campaign, and the country, by projecting stability and calm. We know many readers will think this is impossible, and maybe it is. Yet he showed admirable restraint after the debate last week, letting Democrats...

    Dr. Ben Carson was recently interviewed by Newsmax’s Katrina Szish and was asked if he has been in talks with President Trump about being a possible running mate. Szish asked Dr. Carson, “Have you talked to President Trump about the potential of being his running mate?” Carson responded, “We’ve talked about many things but not that particular topic.”

    Hiding in plain site is the singular person who could do more for the Trump candidacy, for the Republican ticket, for the party as such, and for the country, than any other. His name is Dr. Ben Carson. The obvious question is: Why is everyone missing this? Carson, without question, is a world-renowned surgeon and first-class mind. He is a gentle soul who served loyally as a cabinet secretary in the first Trump term—one of the few persons to do so for the full duration. Less we forget, he was also the dedicated vice chairman of Trump’s transition team. As...

    A married woman with kids thanked Dr. Ben Carson at a Texas A&M university event last night for saving her life decades earlier. Dr. Carson, a former pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center who later served in the Trump administration as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, spoke at the Turning Point USA event. “God truly had his hands in this miracle,” Sara Bowker said. She was born with craniosynostosis, a condition where the skull improperly fuses together, according to Bowker. “You gave me the opportunity to graduate high school, college, and start graduate school, play competitive sports,...
  • 'We've lost our minds': Ben Carson slams squatter's rights after New York family home taken over — warns America will be 'destroyed from within' if law-abiding citizens aren't protected

    According to New York state law, squatters are “classified as tenants and receive temporary rights as such” after occupying a property for 30 days. New York State law dictates that if an owner wants to reclaim property from a squatter after 30 days, they must prove a right to the property and proceed with legal eviction proceedings. The Landas are taking Flores to landlord-tenant court to evict him. But it’s been a long process. ABC 7 reported that the couple already had five hearings in civil court but the process has been repeatedly delayed.

    Given the recent discussions about a potential Vice President pick by Donald Trump, several people have asked for my perspective. Because I look at the office of the presidency slightly different than most, and specifically because the real challenge that needs to be addressed is located deep inside each institution of government, my perspective on the running mate is somewhat different than most. The Vice President is the safety mechanism for continuity of government in the event that something happens to the President. Additionally, for the unique nature of the 2024 election, the VP pick technically becomes the 2028 MAGA...

    Former President Donald Trump is assembling his policy team with familiar faces from his first term and signaling they would have roles in his potential 2025 Republican presidential administration. Trump and his allies have been meeting and talking by phone for months, sculpting the policies that will define his second term should he win the presidency in 2024. The names of the inner circle were revealed Friday in the latest effort by the Trump campaign to counter outside conservative organizations' efforts to vet and staff a future 2025 administration. Among these aides are former trade representative Robert Lighthizer, former White...

    At least no one can say that the January 6 committee didn’t have an impact! Greg Abbott, Kristi Noem, Henry McMaster, and their families will have to guard against identity theft for the rest of their lives, thanks to the committee’s work in exposing their Social Security numbers. How many numbers got exposed? “Around 1900” of them, according to the Washington Post, which came from White House visitor logs supplied to the committee. The J6 committee failed to redact those from a spreadsheet released to the public as part of its final report on the riot. Ben Carson, a Trump...

Ahead of Trump’s scheduled address, Carson introduced the leading 2024 GOP presidential candidate as “my friend and your friend, and a friend of America.” “As I stand here today, I want to offer my most confident and full endorsement of Donald J. Trump,” said Carson, who ran for president in 2016 and then served in Trump’s administration. “Donald Trump believes in our freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to keep and bear arms,” he added. “So...

    Dr. Ben Carson said the idea of arresting and filing charges against former President Donald Trump is “absolutely absurd” and “embarrassing.” Carson, who served as the secretary of Housing and Urban Development under Trump, was interviewed by Newsmax Sunday and did not hold back on the issue. He specifically pointed to Venezuela and how quickly that once idyllic country collapsed under this kind of political corruption. “Look how quickly Venezuela changed,” he said. “That is high in my thinking because I’ve been there several times when it was a wonderful place to visit, with beautiful resorts and hotels.” Carson pointed...

    Detroit’s school board has voted to remove Dr. Ben Carson’s name from a district school, citing Carson’s involvement with the Trump administration. Benjamin Carson High School of Medicine and Science will be renamed after a poll that revealed 80% of the 1,500 people polled agreed the name should be changed. Dr. Carson told The National Desk he is not surprised by the move. “Cancel culture is alive and well. It’s infiltrating. Political correctness, wokeness, cancel culture, this is going to destroy us as a nation if we don’t get a grip on it.” Dr. Carson grew up in a Detroit...

    Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson blasted President Biden on Thursday for making identity politics a factor in his choice for a Supreme Court justice. Biden said Thursday that he will announce his nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer before the end of February, and that the candidate will be a Black woman. "You know, this is America," Carson said during an interview on WMAL's "The Vince Coglianese Show," a local radio show in Washington, D.C. "Many people fought and gave their lives to bring equality. And now we're reverting back to identity politics....

    Democrats abuse children with mask mandates, COVID-19 fear-mongering, racial agitation marketed as “critical race theory,” and “transgender” ideology, Dr. Ben Carson, retired pediatric neurosurgeon, former Housing and Urban Development secretary, and Secretary and founder of the American Cornerstone Institute, said on Tuesday’s edition of the Breitbart News Daily podcast with special guest host Jerome Hudson. Carson described Democrat hostility to standardized testing in the context of education — ostensibly out of opposition to “racism” — as degrading of ethnic and racial minorities framed by the left as oppressed by “systemic racism.” He said, “It’s really quite insulting when they say,...

    Former Trump Cabinet member Dr. Ben Carson registered concern and disappointment about 80 House Republicans voting with all House Democrats to expand federal vaccine surveillance by connecting and expanding state databases. “It will secondarily be used for other things as well. We have got to be smart enough to recognize these signs when we see them and stop them, to nip them in the bud before it becomes too late,” the former Republican presidential candidate said to Fox host Maria Bartiromo. “It doesn’t take long to change a nation.” Carson’s remarks came in response to Bartiromo’s question about H.R. 550,...

    Villianizing the unvaccinated is all the rage these days, especially from those who have zero answers for ending this pandemic other than the same tired nonsense they've peddled for almost two years now. After lockdowns and masks did little to nothing, vaccines were supposed to do the trick. Even Dr. Anthony Fauci himself predicted the jabs would bring a quick end to the pandemic in November ... 2020. Yet, far more people have died so far in 2021 - when vaccines were prevalent - than all of last year. So now, thanks to a Delta surge in some places and...
