    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...

    The lone African American member of President Donald Trump's Cabinet said Monday he would “work” the president on the issue of athletes taking a knee during the national anthem, though Trump has shown no signs of softening, tweeting over the weekend that he would not watch soccer or football if players don't stand for the national anthem. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said he believes that players are kneeling to protest police brutality, not because they disrespect the flag. He added that players need to make that clear.

    George Stephanopoulos asks Ben Carson whether it's appropriate for President Trump to give his RNC acceptance speech on August 27th in Jacksonville, given that date is the 60th anniversary of "Ax Handle Saturday" in that city, in which KKK members beat a largely black group of civil rights protesters. Carson says that we need to "grow up" and stop being offended by everything. Invited to comment, Stacey Abrams calls Ben Carson's comment "fairly infantile." View the video at the link.

    The ads on Facebook sounded populist and passionate: "The people are rising up against these insane shutdowns," they said. "We're fighting back to demand that our elected officials reopen America." But the posts, funded by an initiative called "Convention of States," were not the product of a grass-roots uprising alone. Instead, they represented one salvo in a wide-ranging and well-financed conservative campaign to undermine restrictions that medical experts say are necessary to contain the coronavirus - but that protesters call overkill and whose economic fallout could damage President Trump's political prospects. A network of right-leaning individuals and groups, aided by...

    Dr. Ben Carson says there is not enough attention being paid to the “number of people who have recovered” from coronavirus, noting that the number “is going to be about 98 percent of all the people who get it.” Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon who serves as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), also said the one-quarter to fully one-half of all people who will get SARS-CoV-2 will show no symptoms at all. “You probably do know someone that has it, you may have it, who knows?” Carson told Fox News host Martha MacCallum on Thursday. “But people have been...

    I was proud recently when Marc Little, chairman of my organization, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, stood behind President Donald Trump at a White House event for Black History Month and prayed for him. Then a parade of black liberals did their thing in the media to try to deflate and devalue this important event. Their actions help us understand why so little progress has been made after more than half a century of civil rights activism. CNNs Keith Boykin called the black Christians grouped around the president "Uncle Toms." Chris Redd of "Saturday Night Live" called them...

    Former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) is getting plenty of heat for tweeting her awful interpretation about why Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson was squatting in the aisle of President Trump's plane on Tuesday.

    The Trump administration took steps Tuesday to roll back an Obama-era rule intended to ensure that communities confront and address racial segregation in housing, saying local governments have been overburdened by the requirements. The proposed Department of Housing and Urban Development rule would redefine fair housing standards to place more emphasis on improving housing choice rather than reducing discrimination. It would reduce regulatory burdens and eliminate the assessment tool used to map racial segregation under the 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule. According to HUD, simplifying the process for cities to meet fair housing requirements would help them meet their...

    U.S. Housing and Development Secretary Ben Carson called Monday for lawmakers in California and other states contending with long-term homelessness to set aside politics and step up their efforts to combat the crisis. The Trump administration has traded barbs with local politicians in California and New York in recent weeks over widespread homelessness in the states. Carson was critical of California’s response to the crisis during an appearance on an interview with FOX Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” arguing that a 16.4 percent increase in homelessness within the state have driven up the national average by more than two percent,...
