    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,...

    “We’ve been having tunnel vision” dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Ben Carson told EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program. “Let’s throw the politics out. We could solve this problem pretty quickly,” he stated in an interview that will premiere on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. New York time. “Let’s open this thing up to all the different mechanisms,” said Carson, a renowned neurosurgeon who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the highest civilian award in the nation—in 2008 for his work. He retired in 2013 and ran for the presidency in 2016, before serving as the secretary of Housing and...

    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...

    Dr. Ben Carson, Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Donald Trump, criticized Covid-19 vaccinations for children ages 5 to 11 as "a giant experiment" during a Sunday appearance on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures." Asked by anchor Maria Bartiromo whether he agreed with the recent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) decision to allow children to receive Pfizer's Covid vaccine, Carson definitively replied, "absolutely not." Carson, former director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, went on to explain his reasoning: The fact of the matter is, the mortality rate for children from COVID-19 is 0.025, which is...

    Back in 2016 his speech at the Republican convention , Ben Carson made a statement that raised some eyebrows. “Now, one of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors, was Saul Alinsky,” said Carson. “And her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky. This was someone she greatly admired….” So far so good. Nothing most political junkies haven’t heard before. “And let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky,” continued Carson. “He wrote a book called Rules for Radicals. It acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom. Now...

    Ben Carson is a brilliant man whose interview with Neil Cavuto is a great example of slicing and dicing someone without being confrontational. The video below is from an interview Carson gave to Neil Cavuto of Fox Business. Cavuto tried his hardest but could not get a rise out of Carson, who calmly destroyed every argument Cavuto tossed his way. This was a master class in defusing jerks like Cavuto.When Cavuto asked about the 2020 election results, Carlson brilliantly responded:Cavuto: “There’s a strong plurality of Republicans, led by no less than Donald Trump himself, that thought the wrong person won...

    The Constitutional Conservatives ^ | February 28, 2021 | Daniel John Sobieski
    The imbecilic derangement of the so-called “woke” culture warriors is shown perfectly by their politically correct focus on the gender reassignment of a plastic potato. Some say move on, it is just a toy and its maker, Hasbro, is merely trying to rebrand its iconic toy by removing the sexist “Mr.” from in front of “Potato Head” on the toy’s marketing and packaging. I would argue that it is more than that. As a toy, it is a way of reaching, and brainwashiung, our children, of continuing the left’s attack on the nuclear family, of fundamentally transforming society in a...

    Dr. Deborah Birx, a leader in the Trump administration’s White House coronavirus task force, suggested over the weekend that President Donald Trump was being secretly fed conflicting data on COVID-19 — data that she was never shown. “I saw the president presenting graphs that I never made,” she told CBS News. “So I know that someone — someone out there or someone inside — was creating a parallel set of data and graphics that were shown to the president.” “I know what I sent up, and I know what was in his hands was different from that,” Birx added.

    STERLING, Va. - Housing Secretary Ben Carson is crediting unapproved, experimental treatments with saving his life after he became “desperately ill” following his infection with the coronavirus. There is no medical evidence that the treatments Carson cited worked. A retired neurosurgeon, Carson said Friday that he believes he’s now “out of the woods.” He disclosed that his wife, Candy, also had COVID-19, the disease the coronavirus causes. Carson tested positive earlier this month. In a statement posted on Facebook, Carson said he was “extremely sick” but saw “dramatic improvement” after taking a botanical treatment derived from the oleander plant. Carson...

    Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson dunked on LeBron James on Thursday after cable comedian Trevor Noah referenced the NBA star in a joke mocking Carson. Carson was a surprise guest at an Evangelicals for Trump event in Grandville, Michigan, on Thursday evening during which he implored supporters to talk about religion and politics with their family and friends. Talk about “the things that are important to you, not about sports and entertainment. I mean, that’s okay, but really, is that what life is all about?” he asked. “Doesn’t matter that much if you can sink a basketball,”...

    Not until lurid headlines damned Carter Page as a traitor to his country in September 2016, six weeks before the presidential election, did he realize someone was using him to play a dirty political trick. Reporters had been hounding the energy investor with strangely detailed questions about his ties to Russia. Page told each of them that he was a former US Navy lieutenant, a graduate of Annapolis, an Eagle Scout — hardly a likely protagonist in some cloak-and-dagger drama. But he had also served as a foreign policy adviser to Donald J. Trump. And secretly, within a collection of...

    President Donald Trump is eyeing another unproven coronavirus "cure," at the recommendation of Housing and Urban Development Sec. Ben Carson, Axios reported Sunday. Oleandrin — a botanical extract from the oleander plant — was suggested to the president by Carson in a meeting in the Oval Office in July, according to the Axios report. MyPillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell, who's known to be well-connected with the president, also expressed support for the experimental extract. Lindell also has a financial stake in the company developing the oleandrin product, Phoenix Biotechnology. Lindell told Axios that Trump "basically said: …'The FDA should...

    Astonishingly, the papyri were written by men who participated in the building of the Great Pyramid, the tomb of the Pharaoh Khufu, the first and largest of the three colossal pyramids at Giza just outside modern Cairo. Among the papyri was the journal of a previously unknown official named Merer, who led a crew of some 200 men who traveled from one end of Egypt to the other picking up and delivering goods of one kind or another. Merer, who accounted for his time in half-day increments, mentions stopping at Tura, a town along the Nile famous for its limestone...
