Besting the White House Marxists, Dr. Ben Carson style

Be like Dr. Ben Carson: Don’t talk about the message. Deliver it and talk about how you did it only after the deed is done

Bob Woodward, Lanny Davis and any others with the cojones to speak out against the anti-American policies of the Obama regime should take a page from the book of the savvy Dr. Ben Carson.
With the Marxist strategies of the regime, coupled with a complicit media at play, it is a mistake to lay bare plans, or to give any kind of heads up to in-the-tank Obama minions.
Don’t show your hands, fellas, use the kind of successful strategy employed by on-the-rise folk hero Ben Carson.
When the White House pressed Carson for a copy of his upcoming speech at last month’s National Prayer Breakfast gathering, Carson responded several times by telling them it wasn’t available.
“Dr. Ben Carson rebuffed multiple requests from the White House for an advance copy of his speech for the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month, a speech in which he criticized President Barack Obama sitting just a few feet away.
“Carson told The Hill he told the White House no, because he doesn’t put his remarks on paper beforehand.
“I told them that I don’t have an advance copy because I don’t write out my speeches and I don’t use teleprompters …they asked more than once … I gave them the [Biblical] texts around which the remarks would be framed … I said read those texts, the remarks will be framed around those … that should have told them something.”

The White House didn’t comment on Carson’s disclosure.
The retiring pediatric neurosurgeon, who has been besieged by requests to run for political office, will be speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference this month.
In other words, the popular Carson hit the White House the same way it usually hits We the People: on the sly.
Woodward, Davis and all others who dare criticize Obama policies should take the same trip down Memory Lane that Canada Free Press (CFP) letter to the editor writer Helena Bradley did this morning.
“Antonio Gramsci—the originally fiery orthodox Bolshevik Italian who gave birth to the so-called “Western-Marxism”, along with Bolshevism the two main strains of Marxism-Leninism—advised his followers that, once in overall power, they should return to their Bolshevik roots to govern and to secure staying in power, although, if necessary or just for appearances, they should still keep using the tools of democracy that they used to reach power, and also keep employing, as needed, any pragmatism (e.g. resorting to fascism, or just to Keynesianism and so forth) that may be suitable to the sought goals,” Bradley wrote.
“So along with the line of returning to Bolshevism, Obama has, since the beginning of his occupation of the White House, taken it as routine to terrorize with terrible threats individuals and institutions that dissent from his ideology, politics or policies.
“Remember how, on Friday, April 3, 2009, he menaced the CEOs from 13 of the nation’s biggest banks to force them into accepting “stimulus” funds with the not so veiled Bolshevik-style threat, “My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks…”
“Remember how he made such a threat good when, for instance, on May 1, 2010, Obama unleashed a mob of more than 700 goons from Organizing for America—originally Obama’s main hardcore-left activism organization based on the Nazi “Brown Shirts”, and, now, organically, a branch of the Democrat Party since the very day after Obama finagled getting elected the first time—along with mobs from the SEIU, National People’s Action, and MoveOn.org, to lay siege to the house of Bank of America deputy general counsel Gregory Baer. The hoodlums that had laid the siege didn’t give any consideration that—during the entire time they had Baer’s home surrounded—the only occupants in the house, it’s said, were Baer’s pre-teen children and a female caretaker?”
Yet, the far left and their supporters ride free on that bus called ‘We’re the Natural Defenders of Helpless Women and Children’.
Dear Leaders throughout history are always the same and Bolsheviks famously and violently some day turn on their own.
Lavrentiy Beriya transmitted Stalin’s order to Pavel Sudoplatov to arrange for the gross assassination of Leon Trotsky whenever and wherever he be caught. Ramón Mercader caught him in Mexico City, killing him by a stroke to the head with an ice-ax..thus converting The Hammer & Sickle into The Hammer & Ice-Ax,” Bradley reminds us.
It should go without saying that no matter how celebrated the journalists daring to question Obama’s Marxist policy should use a little more moxie and keep their powder dry.
Describing how a government official yelled down telephone lines at you for half an hour or contending later that maybe Obama didn’t know about it, won’t cut it.
Be like Dr. Ben Carson: Don’t talk about the message. Deliver it and talk about how you did it only after the deed is done.

Dr. Benjamin Carson at the National Prayer Breakfast

Uncommon sense
February 7, 2013 - One of the more unique speeches delivered at this morning's National Prayer Breakfast came from Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, a world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Taking the stage before President Barack Obama's faith-filled address, Carson spoke for more than 25 minutes, tackling issues ranging from education to personal responsibility. His keynote, while predicated upon the theme of Jesus Christ as his ultimate role model, also took a starkly political tone, advocating against some of the very policies the president has implemented. At the beginning of his speech, Carson shared an intense disdain for political correctness. Without getting too specific on the issue front, he said that Americans should stop being afraid to speak up and defend their beliefs; he also encouraged people to respect the individuals they disagree with. Carson held little back, condemning political correctness as "a horrible thing" that is "dangerous," as it hampers freedom of thought and expression.

"We've reached a point where people are actually afraid to talk about what they want to say, because somebody might be offended," Carson said, noting the example of people refraining from saying "Merry Christmas." "We've got to get over this sensitivity and it keeps people from saying what they really believe." Carson encouraged discussion about societal issues, also pointing out education as an essential conundrum the country needs to confront. He highlighted his own path from poverty to success, sharing very personal details about his parents and early family life and subsequently described the importance of helping students seeking to advance academically through his Carson Scholars Fund.

The speech took an interesting turn when the doctor cautioned that moral decay and fiscal irresponsibility can have dire consequences, even for powerful countries like America. Here, he became even more pointed and impassioned.

"I think particularly about ancient Rome. Very powerful, nobody could even challenge them militarily...they destroyed themselves from within," Carson continued. "Moral decay. Fiscal irresponsibility."

While he said America's issues are dire, he was positive that the nation can fix its ways, as there are bright and innovative people who simply need to come together to address the problems at hand. "And one of our big problems right now...our deficit is a big problem," he said, as Obama watched him intently. "Think about it” and our national
debt at "$16 and a half trillion dollars." To illustrate just how massive the debt is, Carson told the audience that if they counted one number per second, it would take them 507,000 years to get to the sum total. The doctor said that the massive fiscal blunder is something that the nation must contend with. From there, he moved on to taxation, seemingly taking a stance in direct opposition to Obama's.

"What about our taxation system so complex there is no one that can possibly comply with every jot and tittle," he noted, going on to call for a simpler (i.e. flat tax) system. "When I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? ” I see the fairest individual in the universe!” God and he's given us a system. It's called tithe." Carson progressed, seemingly comparing the tithe, at least in principal, to the flat tax system. Rather than continuing to tier taxes owed, he argued that everyone should pay the same proportion and that, through this fairer system, money sent by wealthier Americans for protection abroad should be brought back to America to help build infrastructure and create additional jobs. The doctor also addressed medical care, advocating for health
savings accounts and railing against the notion that Americans should be sending money into a large bureaucratic system.
