Democrats were quite busy last week, finding ample opportunity to enjoy their favorite hobby — harassing the president. These hijinks notably included meeting to impeach President Trump, and then behaving as if they were shocked that the President didn’t want to discuss infrastructure with them on that very same day. Yet, their penchant for pandering to their intersectionality-obsessed base still needed to be satisfied. So, after expounding their radical views on gender ideology, some Democrats (ironically including Rep. Jennifer Wexton, D-Va.) have called HUD Secretary Ben Carson a liar for changing an Obama administration rule regarding discrimination in federally funded
Saul Alinsky remains the man the right most perennially loves to hate. Somewhere in Heaven — or Hell — Alinsky’s surely enjoying a fine laugh. Dr. Ben Carson, in his speech before the GOP Convention, departed from his prepared remarks. He extemporaneously added a riff on Saul Alinsky. He debuted this right wing crowd-pleaser in his keynote speech at the Faith And Freedom Coalition Gala, a speech which I critiqued at length in an essay at ThePulse2016, Ben Carson, Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky, and Donald Trump). Here’s how it goes: Now, one of the things that I have learned about
Townhall‘s Cortney O’Brien provides an interesting report on Dr. Ben Carson’s keynote address to the recent Faith and Freedom Coalition gala. It is headlined “Carson: We Need To Inform People About Hillary Clinton’s Radical Hero.” Therein she reports: A good introductory lesson, he noted, would be by magnifying presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s radical history. “We need to inform people about Hillary Clinton’s hero – Saul Alinsky.” Alinsky, a 1970s community organizer, wrote the book Rules for Radicals. It became a field guide for progressives regarding how to organize people to pursue liberal causes. As you open the book, Carson noted, you read that Alinsky “dedicated”
Despite officially suspending his campaign at CPAC in March, Ben Carson had a major impact on Tuesday’s New York primary. Even after his endorsement of Donald Trump, Carson has recently made statements that some have interpreted as pro-Cruz sentiments. However, after Tuesday’s primary, Carson has effectively laid to rest any doubts about his loyalty to Trump. New York’s system of awarding delegates hinges on gaining a majority in each of its 27 congressional districts, as well as statewide. Thus, having fewer candidates in the race makes it significantly easier for a single candidate to win all of the delegates at
Dr. Ben Carson, the most dignified of candidates, endorses Donald Trump, the least dignified man on the national stage: “He’s actually a very intelligent man who cares deeply about America,” Carson said at a press conference at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Forida. “There’s two different Donald Trumps. There’s the one you see on stage and the one that’s very cerebral, sits there and considers things very carefully.” Dr. Carson promised we would start seeing more of that second Donald Trump, the one who doesn’t say disgusting things. Here’s the thing, Dr. Carson: If Hillary and the Democrats attack

This evening at CPAC, Dr. Ben Carson officially suspended his — now quixotic — quest for the presidency, stating that he would be “leaving the campaign trail.” Despite leading several national polls earlier in the cycle, Dr. Carson was unable to seize on his grassroots momentum and turned in a number of lackluster showings in the early voting states. However, in spite these poor performances, Dr. Carson had time and time again committed to continuing his campaign. It would seem that a key aspect of his decision to finally bow out of the race is his new job. Carson will serve
