Dr. Ben Carson Is In … He Announced Today That He Will Run for 2016 President of the United States of America
DR. BEN CARSON SAYS HE IS IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RACE …
We had all expected that Dr. Ben Carson would officially enter the presidential race next week in Detroit; however, he told local media today that he would run for the President of the United States. Carson shared his decision with WPEC-TV, the CBS affiliate in West Palm Beach, FL in an exclusive interview on Sunday.
Carson, 63, will formally jump into the race at an event in Detroit, where he grew up.
His presidential campaign will mark Carson’s first run for office, though he’s been a Tea Party hero since 2013 following his blistering attack of Obamacare at the National Prayer Breakfast in front of President Obama.
While he enters the race as a long shot to capture the GOP nomination, he currently polls ahead of several more established Republican contenders in Iowa, site of the first caucus, including former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, the winner there in 2012.
The Republican field of candidates continues to widen.
Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson is expected to make a major announcement at an event Monday in his hometown of Detroit.
But in an exclusive interview Sunday, Dr. Carson tells our National Correspondent Jeff Barnd he is in the race for the White House in 2016.
“I’m willing to be part of the equation and therefore, I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States of America.”
With that, Dr. Ben Carson is off and running. He rose from poverty in Detroit to the head of the pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He’s now retired from medicine.
“Many people have suggested to me that I should run for president, even though I’m not a politician,” Carson said.
Dr. Carson’s political star rose at the National Prayer Breakfast two years ago when he admonished President Obama for several white house policies including Obamacare.
“I began to ask myself why are people clamoring for me to do this? I represented a lot of the same thoughts that they have,” Dr. Carson says. “I’m not 100% sure ‘politics as usual’ is going to save us. I think we are in a severe problem … a problematic situation.”
According to a recent AP-GfK Poll, Hillary Rodham Clinton is lacking in being inspiring, likable and of course honesty. One has to wonder what qualifies her to be president of the United States and why people would vote for her with these 3 strikes against her.
What difference does it make what you think
Americans appear to be suspicious of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.
Is she strong and decisive? Yes, say a majority of people. But inspiring and likable? Only a minority think so.
Clinton’s struggles to explain her email practices while in government, along with questions about the Clinton Foundation and Republican criticism of her openness, wealth and trustworthiness seem to have struck a nerve in the public’s perception of the dominant Democratic figure in the 2016 campaign. In the survey, 61 percent said “honest” describes her only slightly well or not at all.
Nearly four in 10 Democrats, and more than six in 10 independents agreed that “honest” was not the best word for her.
Even so, she is viewed more favorably than her potential Republican rivals, none of whom are as well-known as the former secretary of state, senator and first lady.
RUN BERNIE, RUN!!!
Vermont’s self-proclaimed socialist Senator is supposed to announce his candidacy for the 2016 presidential election. I can say that I do not agree with one position or policy of Sanders but I do respect him because as far-LEFT and socialist as he is, he actually believes what he says, as misguided as it is. For that I say, run Bernie, run!!! We speculated a month back when Bernie Sanders hinted that he would run in 2016, that he might just be Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare. Although Sanders is an Independent in the Senate, he would be running in the Democrat primary. Sanders would force Hillary to the far, far LEFT. The Democrat party has moved much farther to the LEFT from the days of Bill Clinton’s presidency. Does Bernie have a real chance of winning the Democrat nomination, probably not. However, this socialist who is going to run on income inequality has strongly criticized Clinton for having a “soft” attitude towards Wall Street. Sanders could be a major thorn in the side of Hillary Clinton as his socialist views are loved by the liberal base.
The Independent Socialist Senator said he “liked Hilliary” and she is a “very, very intelligent person”. However, Sanders said there needs to be a leader “to wage a political revolution in this country which brings millions of people into the political process to stand up and fighting for their rights in a way that we have not seen right now,” and Hillary Clinton was not the leader of that movement.
VPR News has learned from several sources that Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will announce his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday.
Sanders will release a short statement on that day and then hold a major campaign kickoff in Vermont in several weeks.
Sanders’ entry into the Democratic race ensures that Hillary Clinton will face a challenge to win the support of the liberal wing of the party.
Sanders’ basic message will be that the middle class in America has been decimated in the past two decades while wealthy people and corporations have flourished.
His opposition to a proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal (T.P.P.) shows how he plans to frame this key issue of his campaign.
In the Real Clear Politics Poll for the 2016 Democratic Presidential Nomination has Bernie Sanders in a distant 4th place at 5.6%, some 56.6% behind Hillary Clinton; however, ahead of O’Malley, who the media claims to be a challenger to Hillary.
Hillary Clinton Claims She Wants to Listen to the People and is Accessible as She Avoids Them in Keene, NH
ARE HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTERS REALLY THAT GULLIBLE … DO YOU ACTUALLY THINK SHE WANTS TO CHAMPION THE LITTLE PEOPLE?
Her tour was billed as conversations with every day Granite-stater’s as it turned out to be quite the opposite. As her adoring fans waited in the rain in Keene, NH to hopefully see and maybe even have a chance to say something to the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee for 2016, all they got was a brief glimpse of blond hair. What is most interesting about this was that even her fans were a bit miffed at being blown off my Hillary. Her own fans who waited for Hillary were skeptical of her saying, “I mean, we’re standing out in the rain waiting for her and then all of a sudden, she’s just running from us.” America, namely those that are enamored with Hillary Clinton, she could care less about you, she is about Hillary. All the populist, common folk, champion of the little people is just BS.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who has vowed to be ?“accessible” to New Hampshire voters, left many of her rain-soaked supporters here high and dry when she sped in and out of a public meeting without so much as a hello.
“It should have been ?advertised that we’re not allowed to see her,” said Keene resident Michelle Isabelle.
“People are the ones that are voting for her, so if she’s running and not meeting people, then what’s the sense of coming here?” Isabelle said. “I really believe in her but I’m … actually perturbed right now.”
Clinton came here for her first stop in the Granite State since announcing her 2016 Oval Office campaign. The former U.S. secretary of state toured Whitney Brothers, a family-owned children’s furniture business, and huddled with employees for a much-publicized roundtable — but never pressed the flesh with several dozen people huddled outside.
Most of the ignored backers were also young — a key demographic for the former first lady.
“If I was running, I would want to meet the people that I’m going to be supporting and serving, get their input on what they would like to see personally. She’s running for president. She should be able to want to meet the people themselves,” said Kammara Gagne, 20, of Keene.
“I mean, we’re standing out in the rain waiting for her and then all of a sudden, she’s just running from us,” Gagne said. “It’s like, why are you running?”
This was not the first time that Hillary Clinton raced past people that were waiting to see her since she declared that she was running for president to champion the little people. As the American Spectator opines, Hillary Clinton is no Bubba … “Say what you will about Bill Clinton. He knew how to work a room & wouldn’t have kept his supporters waiting outside in the rain. He’d have taken the time to say hello and make their wait worth the while.”
Hillary Clinton’s Scooby Van Clocked at 92 MPH in New Hampshire in a Driving Rainstorm on Interstate 89
LIKE SAMMY HAGAR, HILLARY CLINTON CAN’T DRIVE 55 …
Yup, she is one of us … first Hillary Clinton’s Scooby van is caught parking in a handicap spot in Iowa, now it is reported that the Mystery Machine was clocked at doing 92 mph in New Hampshire on Interstate 89 in a driving rainstorm as she was being rushed to meet
the little people one Granite state political big-wig to the next. REALLY? Having driven that highway hundreds of times and being pulled over by New Hampshire’s finest for going a much less speed, I think I might have to retroactively contest that ticket. I wonder if the Scooby van had its lights on in the inclement weather, that also would be a ticketable offense. Maybe for their next act the Scooby van will perform a hit and run.
Hmm, what happened to Hillary meeting and being the champion on the commoners?
- Motorcade raced from Keene to Claremont to Concord, obliterating speed limits as Hillary kept a tight schedule of off-the-books events
- Claremont party at the home of an aide to Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen included messaging about income inequality, despite Clinton’s own wealth
- Event was reportedly scheduled to test the waters for a Shaheen endorsement for Clinton
- Evening dinner party was at the sprawling home of the former New Hampshire state Senate president, Sylvia Larsen
Democratic Presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s security detail led a handful of journalists on two lengthy high-speed chases to homes of influential Democrats on Monday.
Her lone official appearance on her first day in New Hampshire was a carefully stage-managed small-business roundtable in Keene.
But a lunchtime visit to a main-street bakery and two more appointments later in the day were off-the-books and under the public’s radar.
If police radar had been engaged, however, it would have clocked Hillary’s signature black conversion van – ‘Scooby’, for the uninitiated – hitting 92 mph in a driving rainstorm on Interstate 89, where the top speed limit is 65.
After Clinton emerged from Whitney Brothers, a children’s furniture manufacturer, her black Chevy conversion van raced an hour north to the town of Claremont, hitting 73 in a 55 mph zone.
Lindsey Graham says he is 91% sure he will run in the 2016 GOP presidential primary … I am 100% sure he will lose and will not even be considered a viable VP running mate.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace that he is 91% sure that he will throw his hat into the 2016 GOP presidential primary. Graham stated, “I’ve criticized the president for leading from behind, being weak and indecisive;” however, that hardly makes one a candidate to be president or carry your parties banner. Graham is so far out of touch with Republican voters on climate change, raising taxes and amnesty that polls show Graham is running fourth behind Scott Walker, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz in his home state of South Carolina. The polls found that 55% of Palmetto State voters wouldn’t vote for him for president. It is hard to imagine that Lindsey Grahamnesty will run for president on the GOP side because one has to wonder who would finance his campaign.
WALLACE: Are you too moderate? Are you too far in the center on nondefense issues to win the Republican nomination?
GRAHAM: Not at all. I believe climate change is real, but I reject the cap and trade solution of John — of, you know, of Al Gore. He’s made a religion. It’s a problem.
I would like to clean up the air and water, become more energy independence, create jobs. I’m for offshore drilling. I’m for finding oil and gas that we own. I’m for coal, I’m for clean coal, I’m for natural gas but I would like a lower carbon economy over time. Clean up the air and create jobs in the process.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said his decision on whether he’ll run for president depends on whether he can raise enough money, but he said there’s a “91 percent” chance he will.
“If I can raise the money, I’ll do it,” he said on “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.” He added, “I think I got a good message, I think I’ve been more right than wrong on foreign policy. I’ve criticized the president for leading from behind, being weak and indecisive. I’ve been a problem solver in Washington, and I think I’ve got something to offer the party in Washington.”
He said he would make a decision by May.
Note to Lindsey Graham, had you had a viable GOP primary challenge you for Senate in SC like Trey Gowdy or Joe Wilson, Graham would have lost and been back to practicing law.
ABOVE THE LAW: Hillary Clinton’s Mystery Machine Scooby Van Illegally Parked in Handicap Parking Spot … But What Difference Does It Make?
ARE REAL AMERICANS ALLOWED TO PARK IN HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOTS WITHOUT HANDICAPPED STICKERS … IF HILLARY WAS A REPUBLICAN THE MSM WOULD BE ASKING … WHY DOES HILLARY CLINTON THINK SO LITTLE OF THE HANDICAPPED?
Add another black mark to the Hillary Clinton roll out of her 2016 presidential run. This time it was in Council Bluffs, Iowa where Hillary’s Scooby Doo van parked in a handicapped parking spot. Remember, the rules really don’t apply to Democrat politicians, especially Hillary Clinton. So this is how she shows she is one of us? Do any of you think that there would not be a ticket on your vehicle if you had done the same? That’s because you are not entitled and above the law. How about a comment from Team Hillary where they they are asked whether they think its OK to park in a handicap spot and why they think so little of the handicapped that they would illegally park in a spot?
Hillary Clinton’s now-famous Scooby Doo van made an appearance in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Thursday for a closed-door meeting with state Democratic Party officials – and it idled in a handicapped parking space from beginning to end.
Footage broadcast by KETV-7 in the nearby city of Omaha, Nebraska, showed the presidential nominee emerging from a cafe, greeting onlookers and walking past the blue handicapped-parking sign to climb into the vehicle.
- Her campaign plans to raise and spend an unbelievable $2.5 billion!

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT HILLARY IS CAPABLE OF TELLING THE TRUTH ON …
Hillary Clinton has stepped in it once again, this time spinning a yarn about her Faux immigrant family. Hillary has been telling the story of her immigrant grandparents because one, it sounded good and was politically expedient for her and two, well it must be true because Hillary always thought of them as immigrants. UNREAL. This woman is simply incapable of telling the truth. You mean she never thought as she is running for the highest office in the land and has a severe credibility issue with voters thought to vet the story?
This is from the same person who said she was names after Sir Edmund Hillary, the man who climbed Mt. Everest. Eventually, Hillary was forced to admit that was not true either as Hillary Diane Rodham born on October 26, 1947 and Sir Edmund Hillary did not conquer Mt Everest until May 29, 1953. Even Kool-aid drinking sycophant liberals can do that math.
She’s Just Making it Up as she Goes …
Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.
The story of her grandmother specifically immigrating is one Clinton has told before. Clinton’s sole foreign-born grandparent, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated as a child.
“Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton spokesman told BuzzFeed News. “As has been correctly pointed out, while her grandfather was an immigrant, it appears that Hillary’s grandmother was born shortly after her parents and siblings arrived in the U.S. in the early 1880s.”
“All my grandparents, you know, came over here and you know my grandfather went to work in lace mill in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and worked there until he retired at 65. He started there when he was a teenager and just kept going,” Clinton said.
As PJ Media opines, “She has always thought of them as immigrants” — summing up the Clintons and the rest of the Mendacious Left in a nutshell. They feel something is true (mostly because it’s politically useful to them), ergo, it is true.
Maybe the real records of Hillary Clinton’s genealogy tree was saved on her private server that she scrubbed? When one cannot tell the truth on the simple things in life, imagine what type of liar they would be with the big things?
ITS NEVER GOOD FOR DEMOCRATS WHEN THE DAILY SHOW MOCKS YOU AND SHOWS YOU FOR THE FRAUDS YOU ARE …
Of course Jon Stewart attacked the GOP, after all it is Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, but his mockery of Hillary Clinton’s boring presidential roll out as he compared the Hillary Clinton VIDEO to a State Farm commercial. After watching the beginning of the video, Stewart says, “this is boring as SH*T.” Stewart went on to opine, “it’s weird how they wouldn’t let you make your own commercial, you had to share your announcement with a guy from a gravel company.” But Jon, this is to she she is own of the people. yeah, Stewart isn’t buying it either.
The Daily Show had a bit of fun with Hillary Clinton’s big announcement this week. After mocking her fairly boring campaign video, host Jon Stewart praised Clinton for “not acting like she’s dropping a bombshell with the announcement, because this isn’t about her,” which he called a “refreshing change from her 2008 strategy, “shut up I’m talking, the I am inevitable bus tour.”
