Dr. Carson in the Senate: I don’t think anyone should get ‘extra rights,’ | Jan 14 2017

Carson: Equal Rights Does Not Mean Extra Rights

– True Pundit

“As he jousted with Senate Democrats on Thursday during his confirmation hearing to become secretary of housing and urban development, Ben Carson affirmed his view that no group is entitled to an extra helping of equality.

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, asked Carson about enforcing LGBT protections in the public housing sector.

“Of course, I would enforce all the laws of the land,” Carson responded. “Of course, I think all Americans should be protected by the law.”

Then he made one clarification.

“What I have said before is I don’t think anyone should get ‘extra rights,’” he said.

In his opening remarks to the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, the former presidential candidate talked about his experience with “housing insecurity” and talked about the plight of his mother.

“She didn’t have any skills, basically a third-grade education, and we had no place to live,” he said. “She couldn’t afford the house so we ended up moving to Boston, moving in with relatives. So I have actually in my life understood what housing insecurity was. And we were there in Boston for a couple of years.”

Cruz Cheating Saga Continues – Feb 2016

Carson speaker ‘devastated’ by bogus report spread by Cruz operatives in Iowa

“INDEPENDENCE — This was something new for Naomi Probert: Stand in front of a crowd of 500 people and tell them why she feels someone should be elected president of the United States.

The married mother of adopted Haitian children ages 5 and 6 found one candidate spoke to her heart: Dr. Ben Carson.

She and her family met Carson, personally, a day earlier in Manchester. The experience only reinforced her support for him.

So much so, she was willing to speak on his behalf at her Republican precinct caucus Monday night at Independence High School. In fact, her kids helped hand out literature for him. Supporting Carson was, for the Proberts, a family affair.

“I’d never done anything like this before,” she said. “I felt really passionate about Dr. Carson. We were inspired by Dr. Carson’s story. I volunteered to talk for him. And you get all revved up to speak to 500 people.”

Then, the unthinkable happened.

A lady who had just checked her smart phone said the campaign of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz “just informed us that there’s a CNN story that he (Carson) is out of the race and he’s endorsed (Sen. Ted) Cruz,” Probert related. She had already risen to speak.

“There was a gasp in the audience,” Probert related. “I was just devastated. I got emotional. I said, ‘My husband and I live here in Independence with our two Haitian children. We were inspired by Dr. Carson’s story…’”

That was as far as she got. Overcome by emotion, she sat down.

She and her husband, Stephen, got on their smartphones to find the story in question. They didn’t.”

– Absolutely heartbreaking. I only met a candidate once, although I met Reagan twice when he was the governor, able to shake the smiling outstretched hand of Gene McCarthy who spoke for so many of us in the the spring of 1968. I can only imagine how I would have felt in her circumstances.

Ted Cruz has a lot to answer for and the list just keeps growing.

Investigate CAIR Says Ben Carson | Jan 14, 2016

Dr. Ben Carson Continues to Call for Thorough Investigation of U.S. Muslim Group CAIR

“Alexandria, Va. – January 14, 2016 – Dr. Carson, retired neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate, continues to call for the U.S. government to conduct a full investigation into the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim group. CAIR has extensive ties to foreign terrorist groups, such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and was once named by federal prosecutors as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a plot to facilitate terrorist financing.

CAIR has repeatedly and openly expressed support for terrorism, disdain for the U.S. Constitution and a desire for America to be ruled under Sharia law. Three Muslim countries, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia and Egypt, have designated the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates, which include CAIR, as terrorist organizations.

CAIR has long hidden behind a thin veil of advocacy, using political correctness to attack anyone who would expose their extremist roots. We can’t let a fear of offending obscure domestic terrorists prevent us from subjecting CAIR to the full scrutiny of law enforcement. CAIR’s ideals and activities do not represent the views of America’s peace-loving and patriotic Muslim communities. We must investigate this organization immediately in order to safeguard the security of the American people.”

Why the U.A.E. is calling 2 American groups terrorists

– Washington Post – 2014

“United Arab Emirates released a list of designated terrorist groups and organizations over the weekend, with more than 80 different groups from around the world blacklisted. The list covers a variety of well-known names, including al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, al Shabab and Boko Haram.

It is the inclusion of two very specific groups, however, that made the list a hot topic on a number of right wing U.S. news sites. Two American groups that represent Muslims — the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society — had been designated terrorist groups by the Gulf state.”
