Donald Trump thumbs up

Donald Trump has a significant lead in the race to win over likely Iowa caucus-goers, according to the first CNN/ORC poll in the state this cycle.

Trump tops the field with 22% and is the candidate seen as best able to handle top issues including the economy, illegal immigration and terrorism. He’s most cited as the one with the best chance of winning the general election, and, by a wide margin, as the candidate most likely to change the way things work in Washington.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson follows Trump in overall preference with 14%, bumping Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who had held the top spot in most recent public polling in Iowa, down to third place with 9%. Walker is nearly even with a slew of other candidates.

GOP Presidential Candidate Ben Carson from the Fox News Republican Debate … “There is No Such Thing as a Politically Correct War”

We will be showing some of the better moments from the Fox News Republican Presidential candidate debate, because trust me I have much to say later regarding this debate and FOX News. Shame on you FOX for this liberal-like gotcha, low rent, Media Matters-like opposition research attack questions that passed as a debate.

The debate can be seen HERE.

One of the individuals I thought did a fantastic job was Ben Carson

Former neurosurgeon Ben Carson is a political outsider and one of the reasons why we love him. His matter of fact tone and answers make him a favorite amongst those who can’t stand the political-insider elite political class. As Ben Carson answers Megyn Kelly’s lame question on water-boarding, Carson hit it out of the park and started by making an interesting comment about wondering whether he was ever going to get to speak again during the debate. I had wondered the same thing. Sadly, moderators like Kelly think this was about her. Ben Carson stated, “I would not necessarily be broadcasting to everybody what we are going to do. We have gotten into this mindset of fighting politically correct wars, there is no such thing as a politically correct war.”

Carson’s comment on race relations in the United States was a home run and I believe that Martin Luther King Jr. stood up, nodded and cheered.

 ”There is No Such Thing as a Politically Correct War”

I would not necessarily be broadcasting to everybody what we are going to do.” We have gotten into this mindset of fighting politically correct wars, there is no such thing as a politically correct war.

Race Relations in America – (go to the 6:30 mark of video)

I was asked by an  NPR reporter once, why don’t I talk about race that often? I said that is because I am a neurosurgeon.
And she thought that was a strange response. I said that when I take someone to the operating room, I am actually operating on the thing
that makes them who they are, the skin doesn’t make them who they are, the hair does not make them who they are and its time for us to move beyond that.
Our strength as a nation comes in our unity. We are the United States of America, not the divided states and those that want to destroy us are trying to divide us.

Ben Carson’s Closing Statement

I’m the only here who has separated Siamese twins. The only one to operate on babies still in the mother’s womb.
The only one to take out half of a brain, although you would think if you go to Washington that some one had beaten me to it.

Because freedom is not free and we must fight for it every day. Everyone of us must fight for it because we are fighting for our children and the next generation.

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.

 ABC-WHAM-13:

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.”

CNN/ORC Poll Has Jeb Bush as 2016 Presidential GOP Frontrunner at 23% … Please, This RINO Wins and the GOP is Finished

DON’T GET TOO GIDDY CNN, THERE IS A LONG WAY TO GO AND MOST POLLS NOW ARE JUST NAME RECOGNITION.

CNN has released their most recent CNN/ORC poll that shows former Florida Governor Jeb Bush leads the long list of potential GOP candidates for the Republican nominee for president in 2016. Bush came in at 23%, a 10 point lead over his next closest competitor, fellow RINO, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Physician Ben Carson comes in third, with 7% support, and Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are both tied for fourth with 6%. Honestly, the last thing the GOP needs is another Bush to run for president. Sorry, but the United States is not a monarchy, no one family gets to monopolize the White House. That same sentiment goes to the Clinton’s as well.

Bushes

Sorry, since when did the GOP need just one family to get presidential nominees?

Jeb Bush is the clear Republican presidential frontrunner, surging to the front of the potential GOP pack following his announcement that he’s “actively exploring” a bid, a new CNN/ORC poll found.

He takes nearly one-quarter — 23% — of Republicans surveyed in the new nationwide poll, putting him 10 points ahead of his closest competitor, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who tallied 13%.

Physician Ben Carson comes in third, with 7% support, and Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are both tied for fourth with 6%.

That marks a drop in support for all but Christie and Bush from the last CNN/ORC survey of the field, conducted in November. That poll showed Bush in the lead, but only taking 14% of the vote, while Carson came in second with 11% and Christie tied Rep. Paul Ryan for fourth with 9% support.

Bush’s 10-point lead is a milestone for the potential GOP field — it marks the first time any prospective candidate has reached a lead beyond a poll’s margin of error in the past two years.

Sorry, but it is hard to imagine that Jeb Bush will win the GOP nomination when the very policies he is for make him less likely to be voted for. Each of the 5 issues below of core Republican ones, amnesty for illegals, common core, tax pledge and increased spending. He might as well run for the Democrat nomination with his position on these policies. Oh yeah, and don’t forget Jeb just quit the for-profit hospital chain Tenet Healthcare that  has benefited greatly from the Affordable Care Act. You know that Obama thing that Republicans claim they want to repeal.

NAACP President Cornell William Brooks Reacts to Dr. Carson’s Comments on Race Relations, I Believe” He “Should Stick to the Operating Room Rather than the Campaign Trail.”

NAACP AND LIBERAL MEDIA ARE SCARED OF DR. BEN CARSON …

In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer , NAACP President Cornell William Brooks was asked to comment on Dr. Ben Carson’s remarks that race relations have become worse under Barack Obama. Cornell William Brooks said, “I believe Dr. Carson, with all due respect, should stick to the operating room rather than the campaign trail.” Carson had previously stated that the president and other progressives of trying to “manipulate, particularly minority communities to make them feel that they are victims.”

Wolf Blitzer played those comments today for NAACP President Cornell William Brooks and asked for his reaction. Brooks said, “I believe Dr. Carson, with all due respect, should stick to the operating room rather than the campaign trail.”

He argued that no one can fairly blame President Obama for a criminal justice system were black males are over-incarcerated. Brooks added that Carson “is not particularly thoughtful on this issue.”

So the NAACP president does not want Ben Carson on the campaign trail? I bet they don’t. The Democrat party, the institutional black victim-hood machines like the NAACP and the race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be exposed and finished. Imagine, just imagine if a black conservative was elected president and helped fixed the ills caused by Barack Obama? Imagine if blacks as well as all Americans were uplifted? Imagine a black president that was a uniter, instead of a divider?

Fox News radio:

He even went so far as to say that Obama and his progressive allies “manipulate… minority communities to make them feel that they are victims.”

Wolf Blitzer played those comments today for NAACP President Cornell William Brooks and asked for his reaction. Brooks said, “I believe Dr. Carson, with all due respect, should stick to the operating room rather than the campaign trail.”

He argued that no one can fairly blame President Obama for a criminal justice system were black males are over-incarcerated. Brooks added that Carson “is not particularly thoughtful on this issue.”

Over-incarcerated? Maybe some one should ask the NAACP president why a they are as a group committing a majority of the crime as a minority?

Ben Carson Says that Race Relations Were Better Before President Barack Obama … Things Have Gotten Worse Because of Obama’s Manipulation of Minority Communities

RACE RELATIONS WORSE UNDER OBAMA … THE GREAT DIVIDER.

With the backdrop of the racially charged Ferguson, Missouri unrest in the “no true bill,” no indictment of officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, former John Hopkins neurosurgeon and probably GOP 2016 presidential hopeful Ben Carson was interviewed on The Hugh Hewitt radio show, had nothing good to say regarding President Barack Obama and race relations in the United States. Carson stated that race relations have gotten worse under the first black president as “things were better before this president was elected”. I would have to agree. When asked whether Obama plays the race card, Carson said … “yes, absolutely.”

Carson cited Obama’s criticism of the police in the Henry Louis Gates incident and his remarks that his son would look like Trayvon Martin and accused the president and other progressives of trying to “manipulate, particularly minority communities to make them feel that they are victims.” And that the president “absolutely” plays the race card, but he said the president was attempting not to do so in the aftermath of the grand jury decision regarding Officer Darren Wilson.

What is sad is that many people thought that the election of Barack Obama would make the situation between the races better. In 2008, exit polls showed that voters were optimistic as they elected Obama …  47% said they thought race relations would get better, 34% said they would stay about the same and only 15% expected them to deteriorate. Personally, I thought they were out of their minds. Especially because Barack Obama had been a “community organizer” and a member of a black liberation theology church in Chicago with Reverend Jeremiah Wright as his pastor. That was then, this is now. In NBC 2014 exit polls, only 20% think things have gotten better, while 38% believe it has gotten worse.

Amid episodes like the unrest over the summer in Ferguson, Missouri, how have American voters’ perceptions of race relations changed since Barack Obama was elected the nation’s first black president? The 2014 NBC News national exit poll found that voters are twice as likely to say that things have gotten worse than say they have improved.

In the historic 2008 election, the exit poll asked voters how they thought race relations in this country would fare in the next few years. On balance, voters were optimistic as they elected Obama – 47% said they thought race relations would get better. Thirty-four percent thought they would stay about the same. Just 15% expected them to deteriorate.

New IBD/TIPP Poll  Obama Poisoned Race Relations In America:

Our latest poll suggests that far from healing America’s racial wounds, the first black president has reopened them. Obama the uniter is actually the great divider.

By an almost 3-1 margin, Americans say race relations have worsened under the man who was supposed to usher in a golden era of “post-racial” relations.

Six years after electing the nation’s first black president, a stunning 46% in the new IBD/TIPP Poll draw that conclusion compared to 18% who don’t. Nearly one in four believe race relations have gotten “much worse” under President Obama, while 35% say they’ve stayed the same.

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz Wins The 2014 Value Voters Summit Presidential Straw Poll … Mocked MSM & PC Police with Undocumented White House Visitor Joke

America, if you really want to elect a true Conservative to turn the country around, you best get serious about Ted Cruz.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed them at the 2014 Values Voters Summit and won the straw poll for the second year in a row. Ted Cruz won with 25%, former Johns Hopkins University neurosurgeon and political newbie Ben Carson came in second with 20%, while former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee  came in third, with 12%. Carson also came in first in the polling for vice president, winning 22% of the votes. Just a note to those at Value Voter Summit, Huckabee is not a conservative.

But Ted Cruz was the star of the show and had the crowd laughing with joke about the recent White House fence jumper, nailing the MSM, political correctness and illegal immigration all in one.

“We should hold the media to account. Because I will say in their reporting on this person who broke into the White House, they really have not used the politically correct term and we should insist that ABC, NBC, CBS, they refer to the visitor according to the term that is politically correct, an undocumented White House visitor.

The Hill:

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz won the Value Voters Summit presidential straw poll on Saturday.

The crowd burst onto applause on Saturday, as Family Research Council President Tony Perkins announced that Cruz won 25 percent of votes at the annual Washington conference.

The victory is a big victory to the Republican firebrand and Tea Party icon, coming just a day after he drew standing ovations with a religious and emotional speech that blasted ObamaCare, congressional Democrats and called for Republicans to take over the White House in 2016.

Cruz also won the straw poll in 2013.

Coming in second was neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a political novice who has a large following in conservative circles but said earlier this week that there is a “strong” likelihood that he would run for president. He won 20 percent of the votes.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) came in third, with 12 percent of the vote.

As a signal of Carson’s popularity at the summit, the former Johns Hopkins University neurosurgeon came in first in the polling for vice president, winning 22 percent of the votes.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz Wins 2016 Presidential Straw Poll at a Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana

If Ted Cruz is Constitutionally allowed to run for President … He will be a real threat to Democrats and establishment Republicans …

Texas Senator Ted Cruz won the 2016 Presidential straw poll at a Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. Cruz finished first with 30.33%, Dr. Ben Carson second with 29.38% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul finished third with 10.43%. They were followed by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and Texas Governor Rick Perry rounded out the top five, at 5.06% and 4.90%, respectively. Moderate RINO’s Florida’s former Governor Jeb Bush came in 7th with 4.42% and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie came in dead last with 1.11%. During his speech Cruz said that Republicans would take back the Senate, they will retire Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and remove Harry Reid as Majority Leader.

Cruz finished in first place in the annual conference’s presidential straw poll at 30.33%. Dr. Ben Carson, a Fox News commentator and conservative activist, finished in second with 29.38% while Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, was third with 10.43%.

Fox News host and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Texas Governor Rick Perry rounded out the top five, at 5.06% and 4.90%, respectively.

Neither Carson nor Paul spoke at the conference, but their support was a show of confidence by the traditionally more conservative crowd. The annual meeting of activists features of who’s who of big-name Republican politicians. It is an important appearance for potential presidential candidates to make.

More moderate Republicans also skipped the conference, but many fared much worse in the straw poll. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie came in dead last with 1.11% while Florida’s former Gov. Jeb Bush and current Sen. Marco Rubio and came in seventh and eighth at 4.42% and 3.32 %, respectively.

Nobody Cares what any politicians in Washington says. Power in politics, sovereignty in America is with We the People!

MUST WATCH VIDEO

Ted Cruz, an ardent defender of The Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment said during his speech, “In Texas, we define gun control real simple. That’s hittin’ what you aim at.” Cruz Also went on to say, “that following the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT the president didn’t do  what she should have done. What he should have done is he should have stood up and said we are going to go after violent criminals  and we are going to come down on violent criminals like a ton of bricks.    instead he used it as an excuse to come after the rights of law abiding citizens.”

Cruz consistently pointed out that Democrats and establishment gray-beard Republicans both says that things can’t get done. Yet time after time in examples of drone strikes against Americans, Second Amendment gun control, foreign affairs and provisions in the International monetary fund.  All won by conservatives.

Too often the establishment GOP says it can’t be done because they are afraid to take a position. In order for there to be change, not only must Democrats go, so must the establishment Republicans who have long forgot what they were sent to Washington, DC to do.

THE CONSERVATIVE BATTLE AGAINST OBAMACARE:  HOW DO YOU WIN ELECTIONS … YOU DON’T WIN IT BY STANDING FOR NOTHING …

Cruz went on to blast the establishment same old-same old way of doing things within the GOP of trying to win elections. There is a cluster of political consultants who keep running losing campaigns, making the same mistakes and keep coming back to donors to make the same failed mistakes that did not win the previous times. He stressed that the way you win elections is you stand for principle and you empower the people.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) Wins CPAC Presidential Straw Poll in a Landslide … 2nd Sen. Ted Cuz (TX), 3rd Ben Carson

Look for Democrats and their liberal MSM minions to go after the rising new anti-establishment star of the Conservative movement, Rand Paul.

Rand Paul wins the presidential straw poll at CPAC going away. Paul received 31% of the vote, while his fellow anti-establishment Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz finished in second place with 11%.  Neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who came to prominence when he let America and Barack Obama know what he felt about Obamacare at the 2013 National Prayers Breakfast, finished third with 9%. Paul is a very dangerous and formidable opponent for Democrats as he energizes the GOP base and brings in the young and libertarian vote.

rand-paul-2016

Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off.

The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum tied for fifth place, with 7 percent.

Um, Chris Christie who? The Republican that the media just drools over, including Fox News, finished distant 4th.

  1. Sen. Rand Paul – KY (31%) – Although I do not agree with all of his policies, Paul is a Conservative and breath of fresh air from the power-elite GOP establishment.
  2. Sen. Ted Cruz – TX (11%) – A Conservative rock star, who if he can run, would make a great President and follow the US Constitution.
  3. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson (9%) – From out of nowhere Carson has taken the Conservatives by storm. I would vote for Ben in a heartbeat.
  4. Gov. Chris Cristie – NJ (8%) – RINO has no chance of winning GOP primary if Republicans ever want to be anything more than Democrat-light.
  5. Gov. Scott Walker – WI (7%) – A solid GOP governor who will one day be a president.
  6. Former Sen Rick Santorum – PA (7%)
  7. Sen. Marco Rubio – FL (6%) – His stance on immigration amnesty has made Rubio toast with the base.
  8. Rep. Paul Ryan – WI (3%) – The base not enamored with establishment Republican and 2012 VP nominee.
  9. Gov. Rick Perry – TX (3%) – His performance in the 2012 GOP primaries may be too much to overcome.

Four others pulled 2%: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Rand Paul energizes the faithful at 2014 CPAC.

The Hill:

While other addresses at this year’s CPAC focused on specific policies and red-meat issues like gay marriage and ObamaCare, Paul spoke in broad metaphorical terms of the need to “stand together for liberty.”

“It isn’t good enough to pick the lesser of two evils,” he said. “We must elect men of principle and conviction and action who will lead us back to greatness. There is a great and tumultuous battle underway, not for the future of the Republican Party, but for the future of the country.”

Paul framed the libertarian-ideas that have gained prominence within the party in recent years in historical terms, positioning his values as descending from the nation’s Founding Fathers. Paul name-dropped foundational American thinkers ranging from Daniel Webster to John Adams, James Madison to Montesquieu, but also quoted Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.

One of his biggest applause lines seemed specifically geared toward the digital generation that has special resonance in the wake of the ongoing debate over privacy and NSA surveillance.

“I believe what you do on your cellphone is none of their damn business,” he said, to extended cheers from the crowd.

Rand Paul released the following statement touting his win:

“The fight for liberty continues, and we must continue to stand up and say: We’re free and no one, no matter how well-intentioned, will take our freedoms from us,” he said. “Together we will stand up for the Constitution. Together we will fight for what is right. Thank you, and onwards to victory.

Obama Enemies List: Ben Carson Visited by IRS after His Critial Comments of Barack Obama at National Prayer Breakfast Earlier This Year

Is the IRS acting as President Barack Obama’s personal revenge and intimidation department?

Earlier this year at the National Prayer Breakfast former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson became a household name and an instant sensation with Conservatives and Republicans when he openly criticized President Obama’s 2010 healthcare reform law (Obamacare), while Obama was sitting just a few feet away. Enter Chicago-style politics and the politics of fear and intimidation. So what did Dr. Carson get for his Constitutional right to free speech and criticism of Obamacare … why a visit from the IRS of course.

At an event in Birmingham, Ala. Monday night, former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson revealed that he had received a visit from the Internal Revenue Service following his much-noted remarks at a National Prayer Breakfast earlier this year.

“I had my first encounter with the IRS this year, unsurprisingly after the prayer breakfast,” Carson told an audience that at the annual Business Council of Alabama Chairman’s Dinner, according to a report from Cliff Sims of the Montgomery, Ala.-based Yellowhammer News.

Ben Carson’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast

Talk about your coincidences, eh? What are the odds that an individual has their first encounter with the IRS following a highly publicized speech that criticized Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation with the president just mere feet away. With the IRS facing the scandal of targeting conservative groups and the Tea Party, how much of a stretch is it that they would attempt to nip this in the bud ad intimidate Ben Carson? What kind of a police state do we live in under the Obama presidency? Sorry, but the actions of the IRS can hardly be considered random. One has to wonder whether the IRS has become Obama’s storm troopers. Talk about a government abuse of power. No matter what the party is in office or who the president is, this kind of crap cannot be allowed in a Republic.

Remember when Obama joked about using the IRS to audit individuals … I guess we are left to wonder whether he was joking or not? I can bet that Ben Carson, the Tea Party and other Conservative groups are not laughing.

UPDATE I: Washington Times - IRS targeted Dr. Ben Carson after Prayer Breakfast speech.

Just months after he gave a speech earlier this year that challenged America’s leadership in President Obama’s presence, Dr. Ben Carson was targeted by IRS agents who requested to review his real estate holdings and then conducted a full audit without finding any wrongdoing.

“I guess it could be a coincidence, but I never had been audited before and never really had any encounters with the IRS,” Dr. Carson said in an interview Thursday with The Washington Times. “But it certainly would make one suspicious because we know now the IRS has been used for political purposes and therefore actions like this come under suspicion.”
