On the heels of his gun control-Nazi comparison, Dr. Ben Carson was busy campaigning through Georgia (where people LOVE him, by the way) when he said a few things that have gotten some liberals riled up. He was in Gainesville, Georgia on Sunday speaking to a large crowd at Free Chapel, a mega church with multiple campuses, when he dropped a truth bomb about welfare. “We shouldn’t give away our values for the sake of political correctness,” he said. Then he added that conservatives have, Read more […]
Ben Carson is giving Donald Trump a run for his money, according to the latest Fox News national poll. Support for Carson in the race for the Republican nomination has nearly doubled in the last two months, he is seen by voters as being more ethical than others, and he has the largest number of GOP primary voters who say they would definitely vote for him. That makes him well-positioned to overtake Trump.
Yeah, you read the headline correclty; Anthea Butler, a tenured prof. at the University of Pennsylvania, is at it again. Butler tweeted “if only there was a ‘coon of the year award” in response to Ben Carson’s claim that people have the right to display Confederate flags on private property. She’s previously tweeted that God is a “white racist” and that Michael Brown’s death was a “blood sacrifice.” Campus Reform’s Christian Spencer has more on this heinous story below: University Read more […]
Conservative hardliners are on a mission to shatter a half century-long tradition in the Republican Party by nominating one of their own for president. After two consecutive establishment nominees flamed out in 2008 and 2012, and as the base’s anger at Republican leaders reaches extraordinary heights, that elusive goal may now be within reach.Donald Trump leads the Republican field in national polls. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, two more political outsiders, are not far behind, and de facto tea Read more […]
PPP’s newest national Republican poll actually finds the top of the field in a pretty similar place to where it was in late August. Donald Trump leads the field with 27%, similar to the 29% he had on our last survey. Ben Carson is in second place with 17%, also similar to the 15% he had last time around. Marco Rubio at 13%, Jeb Bush at 10%, Ted Cruz at 7%, Carly Fiorina at 6%, and Mike Huckabee and John Kasich each at 4% round out the list of candidates with decent levels of support. Chris Christie, Read more […]
The topline figure: 57 percent of the public overall agree with Carson that a Muslim shouldn’t be put in charge of the country versus just 27 percent who disagree, with another 52 percent claiming that he shouldn’t apologize for what he said. It’s Democrats who’ve been doing most of the scolding, though, and so it’s Democrats whose numbers are most interesting here. Sometimes in polls that touch on religion, you’ll find an alignment between Republicans and black voters. Not this time. Read more […]
Former NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said the notion that Shariah law endorses killing homosexuals, rape and making women subservient to men is “crazy” and insisted that critics of Shariah are out to make Muslims “the villain.” In an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiroma on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Abdul-Jabbar’s comments came after Bartiroma noted Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson’s statements about not wanting a Muslim in the White House who hadn’t renounced Read more […]
GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson’s suggestion that he wouldn’t support a Muslim as president, given the conflict between Islamic law and the U.S. Constitution, caused an onslaught of the predictable outrage from the left. He’s been excoriated as “anti-Muslim,” “bigoted,” even “anti-American” and unfit for office. Some, like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), went so far to demand he withdraw from from the presidential race — ironically, almost as if to prove Read more […]
