Ben Carson Suspends Campaign: "I Do Not See a Political Path Forward"

By Rick Pearcey • March 2, 2016, 03:00 PM

Released today by the Carson Campaign:

I have decided not to attend the Fox News GOP Presidential Debate tomorrow night in Detroit. 

Even though I will not be in my hometown of Detroit on Thursday, I remain deeply committed to my home nation, America. 

I do not see a political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results.

However, this grassroots movement on behalf of "We the People" will continue.

Along with millions of patriots who have supported my campaign for President, I remain committed to Saving America for Future Generations.

We must not depart from our goals to restore what God and our Founders intended for this exceptional nation.

I appreciate the support, financial and otherwise, from all corners of America.

Gratefully, my campaign decisions are not constrained by finances; rather by what is in the best interests of the American people.

I will discuss more about the future of this movement during my speech on Friday at CPAC in Washington, D.C.

Here is the Ben Carson for President 2016 website.

Release the Records: Ben Carson vs. Barack Obama, College Edition

By Rick Pearcey • November 9, 2015, 12:04 PM

Media outlets such as the Washington Post have opened to the door to the "demand that President Barack Obama release his Columbia University records immediately," Wayne Root writes. "How nice of them! Thank you!"

Root explains:

If the media thinks Dr. Carson's claims about his college experience 40 years ago are relevant, then clearly Obama's college claims are relevant too.

It's time for all of us to demand Obama release his Columbia college records. It's time for the media to scrutinize Obama the same way they are scrutinizing Ben Carson, Donald Trump, and every other GOP Presidential candidate.

"Dr. Carson's claims haven't cost taxpayers a dime," Root concludes. "But Obama's presidency has cost all of us dearly. If it was all built on a lie, on fraud, we have a right to know."

Guns & Gov't: Media Again Try to Trap Ben Carson

By Rick Pearcey • October 26, 2015, 05:10 PM

And fail. Again.

But Ben Carson on Meet the Press got to utter wild words like government finds it "much more difficult to dominate people who are armed."

In an insane world, common sense is crazy.

Carson: Under Islamic Law, Homosexuals, People of Other Faiths Must Be Killed

By Rick Pearcey • September 22, 2015, 01:19 PM

Melanie Hunter reports at CNSNews.com:

In a post on his Facebook page Monday, GOP presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson explained further why he would not advocate electing a Muslim to the White House who did not renounce Sharia law, saying that the Islamic law calls for homosexual men and women to be put to death as well as people from other religions.

"The first issue I want to deal with tonight is the stories today about my comments yesterday when I was asked if I would support a hypothetical Muslim candidate for President. I responded 'I would not advocate for that,' and I went on to say that many parts of Sharia Law are not compatible with the Constitution. I was immediately attacked by some of my Republican peers and nearly every Democrat alive," Carson said.

"Carson told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, 'I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that'," CNSNews.com reports.

"The president should be 'sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran,' Carson told The Hill, according to CNSNews. "I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country."

On his FB page, Carson states, "Know this, I meant exactly what I said. I could never support a candidate for President of the United States that was Muslim and had not renounced the central tenant of Islam: Sharia Law," CNSNews reports.

"Those Republicans that take issue with my position are amazing. Under Islamic Law, homosexuals -- men and women alike -- must be killed. Women must be subservient. And people following other religions must be killed," CNSNews quotes Carson as saying.

Carson: "Stop Listening to These People Who Tell Us We Cannot Talk About God"

By Rick Pearcey • August 18, 2015, 11:50 AM

Patrick Goodenough reports at CNSNews.com:

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson won an enthusiastic response from an audience at the Iowa State Fair Sunday as he called for Americans to unify to confront problems facing the nation -- and made a fervent case for talking about God.

"We have to stop listening to these people who tell us that we cannot talk about God, we cannot talk about our faith," the retired neurosurgeon said.

"I wonder, do they realize that our founding document, our Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator -- aka God?” he asked.

"Carson went on to note the key references to God in the pledge of allegiance, on the walls of U.S. courtrooms, and on coins and banknotes," CNSNews reports.

“So, if it's in our founding documents, it's in our pledge, it's in our courts and it's on our money, but we're not supposed to talk about it, what in the world is that?” Carson is quoted as saying. "In medicine we call it schizophrenia, a form of craziness."

According to CNSNews, the GOP 2016 presidential hopeful also said "it was time for Americans 'to realize that there's nothing wrong with living by godly principles -- of loving your fellow man, caring about your neighbor, developing your God-given talents to the utmost so that you become valuable to the people around you, having values and principles that govern your life."

“And if we do that,” Carson said, "not only will we remain a pinnacle nation, but we will truly have one nation, under God."

"Carson in his remarks underscored the fact that he is 'not a politician'," CNSNews reports. As such, Carson said that unlike others aiming for the nation's highest elective office, he is not trying to "get re-elected; I want to save our nation."

Ben Carson on Planned Parenthood: "Same People Who Say It's a Meaningless Clump of Cells Are Trying to Get Livers"

By Rick Pearcey • July 29, 2015, 10:39 AM

Craig Millward reports at CNSNews.com:

At a rally to defund Planned Parenthood on Capitol Hill Tuesday, GOP presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson criticized  Planned Parenthood, calling it "hypocritical" that "these same people who say that it's a meaningless clump of cells are trying to get livers and lungs and kidneys."

"Well isn't it funny that these same people who say that it's a meaningless clump of cells are trying to get livers and lungs and kidneys, because how could you have such organs from a meaningless clump of cells," Carson said, according to CNSNews.

"Carson was speaking at a rally organized by Women Betrayed, a project of Students for Life of America and Pro-Life Future, to call for an investigation into Planned Parenthood as well as defunding them. The Capitol Hill rally was one of more than 60 rallies across the nation organized by Women Betrayed," CNS reports.

"I think we have gradually slid in terms of our morals to a point where we don't really care about the killing of human beings," Carson is quoted as saying.

"That is the bad news. The good news is that I think we are changing, and I think things like this are starting to change us a lot. There are actually more people now who identify as pro-life than people who identify as pro-death, and we are capable of changing.

"There was a time in this country when people thought it was okay to own other people, and they thought they could do anything they want with them, because they belong to me. I can beat them, I can kill them, I can do whatever I want to do to them, and we fortunately, as a society matured and began to think about what the words of our Declaration of Independence and the words of our Constitution actually meant," Carson said, according to CNSNews.

"Well those words are meaningful today too," Carson explained, "because they talk about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Well guess what. There can be no liberty and pursuit of happiness if there is no life."
