I’ve heard nothing but great things about this speech all day but haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. But considering how popular it is, I figure I’d go ahead and post it for you to watch tonight.

    One of the best speeches I’ve heard lately…never heard of him before this, but I want to read his book now

    • crosshr

      I’ve listened to him this afternoon. I’m greatful for people like him. Love his life testimony and the way his mother raised them.

      I watched the potus long face, looking at a real man talking from his heart.

      Thank you Scoop for post the video!

    • Staci Waddle

      Check out the movie, too. Very well done. “Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story”

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        We saw it…really well made film.

      • SaraPFan

        Saw it. It is made by Lifetime movie network. They did an excellent job.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Oh man this was Awesome! Please pray for President Obama that he would yield to the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus as his Saviour!

    • keyesforpres

      Amen.

    • Go2Blazes

      Can’t we just pray that he’d yield up his office (maybe take up stand-up comedy)?

      • las1

        I hear stand-up comedy in the slammer is all the rage.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        I tried that one before November 6 2012.

        • Go2Blazes

          (Smile) PRAY HARDER! LOL.

          • Conservative_Hippie

            LOL!

      • bubbles1129

        I’m all for him yield to the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus as his personal Saviour…..then yielding up his office — QUICKLY, and then become a stand-up comedian, of which he is already!

    • steprock

      Amen.

    • http://twitter.com/cvt1959 c v. t

      I’ll pray for him, but I’m not going to hold my breath either!

      • Conservative_Hippie

        No don’t hold your breath cvt!

  • http://twitter.com/cameronspeaks cameron smart

    Thank you . I am going to show this to my 9yr old son this man’s wisdom.

  • 911Infidel

    I’m pretty sure that speech just sailed right over Skeeter’s head.

    • sjmom

      Not so, I watched him and when everyone else clapped he just sat there. The doc stuck it to him and his socialist policies.

      • 1endtimes2020

        Obama seemed paralyzed. His delayed reaction when others laughed, or, not joining in laughter at all, showed he was thinking and throwing daggers. His body language said a lot. He couldn’t wait for Dr. Carson to finish. Dr. Carson is probably on his enemy list.

        • bubbles1129

          ….and every once in a while you could see Michelle clapping in the beginning of his speech — I wonder when it was over if she got to ride home in the same vehicle as her husband!

          • 1endtimes2020

            That is sooo funny.

      • 911Infidel

        Disagree. Skeeter’s soul is dead. His brain might have locked up, but his head space and timing is still way off. Therefore, any wisdom that emanates out of the mouths of the righteous is wasted on the brains of the daft and the damned.

        • sDee

          Yes. Souless. There is true evil in the world. Those beyond redemption.

          • Conservative_Hippie

            I disagree, as long as there is breath to breathe there is time! Some may have said the same for the Apostle Paul, who was a self proclaimed chief of sinners.

            • crosshr

              “chief of all sinners”

              thot u talk bout me C_H ! thank you for the hopeful advise !

              like your note, gives a sinner once like me another chance, trust me I am and will and always cherish my salvation so dearly day in day out ! I’ve been praying for our gov. the potus and all 3 branches that God bless them all with Hunger and Thirst for HIS HOLINESS RIGHTEOUSNESS as once was King David. Sad to remember there was also a King Saul not capable of repenting, King O still live& have a chance !

          • Conservative_Hippie

            I disagree, as long as there is breath to breathe there is time! Some may have said the same for the Apostle Paul, who was a self proclaimed chief of sinners.

        • colliemum

          To me, he looked bored, except when it came to the bit about health care. Then he looked daggers at Dr Carson.
          Mentioning Jesus, mentioning God – that went straight in one ear and out the other, with less than a nanosecond inside his empty skull.

          • 911Infidel

            Exactly. Besides Skeeter worships Allah not God. So how could Skeeter possibly fathom the truths spoken by a man of wisdom and intellect?

            • mbone76

              Hey dumbass, Allah is God just as Johova in the hebrew language!

              • 911Infidel

                Uh no he isn’t. What Allah says is blasphemous the real Itah calls Holy. Allah had no son. God says otherwise, Allah says Jesus Christ didn’t die on the cross. God says anyone who believes that is of the anti_christ and Satan. Volume 8 Book 73 Number 224 of Bukarhi’s Hadith says that” The most aweful name that Allah will hear on the Day Of Resurrection is a man calling himself Malik al-Amelek (King Of Kings). Now why would allah believe that name is so aweful unless he isn’t God and is really Satan.

                Swing and a miss sparky. Care to try again?

                • mbone76

                  Hey Infidel, Your right Allah (GOD) has no son or partner thats needed to comdemn this world; Number 23:19 “God is not man nor son of man”
                  No where in the bible did Jesus claim devinity but the total opposite! Jesus was a prophet sent by God to do his will: Mathew 21:11 “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth!
                  John 14:28 The Father is greater than I! He calls God father because we are all children of God (Allah) as stated in John 20:17!
                  For Jesus could do nothing on his own but only by the will of God (Allah)!

                • 911Infidel

                  “Hey Infidel, Your right Allah (GOD) has no son or partner thats needed to comdemn this world; Number 23:19 “God is not man nor son of man”

                  Yeah that would be shirk to you. Not to me.

                  He that denies the son also denies The Father. I John 2:23

                  “No where in the bible did Jesus claim devinity but the total opposite! Jesus was a prophet sent by God to do his will: Mathew 21:11 “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth!”

                  Nice text without context. And yes he did.

                  “Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?” We are not stoning you for any of these,” replied the Jews, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” John 10:31 -33

                  “John 14:28 The Father is greater than I! He calls God father because we are all children of God (Allah) as stated in John 20:17!”

                  Nope that is not what the text is saying. We are not all children of the Father. Only those who are children of the Son.

                  So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. – Galatians 3:27 -29

                  “For Jesus could do nothing on his own but only by the will of God (Allah)!”

                  Incorrect. “Jesus gave them this answer: “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” John 5:19

                  And I would add this:“Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist–he denies the Father and the Son.” I John 2:22

                  But you can go ahead and claim whatever floats your boat. Truth is Strike 2.

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    “When you educate a man, you liberate a man.” Which is why government so called education is not education but indoctrination.

    What a great speech. Thank you Scoop for putting it up for us. I pray our “leaders” will come to know Christ and trust in Him instead of trusting in themselves.

    • TexasPGRRider

      Speaking of trusting in the Lord, I heard Laura Bush will be making an appearance somewhere next week. I believe she is one of a “special breed” of educators that command respect from everyone…well deserved, in my view….

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        There’s been very few times where I haven’t agreed with her,but yes, I’ve always had so much respect for Laura Bush. I miss seeing a classy yet down to earth first Lady. She is a real Lady.

        • TexasPGRRider

          I think Bill O`Reilly among others are going to be with her somewhere in Florida….

          • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

            cool! Well, not the Bill O part ;-) I’ll have to snoop around to see. I know there used to be a “compound” for the Bush family on Gasparilla Island / Boca Grande, but I don’t know if they still go there or not.

        • legtingle

          Oh, how I dislike Mrs. Obama. I’m one of the “flagger” people that think she made a rude crack about the flag folding ceremony on 9/11. I can’t bear to look at either of the Obama’s. Disgusting grifters, imho.

          Mrs. Bush? A class act, all the way.

      • Conniption Fitz

        Be aware – Laura Bush is pro-choice.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          She is? I didn’t know that.

    • PFFV

      Right On Fellow Warrior ;) You Inspire Me Thanks :)

    • colliemum

      I should’ve know it: you homed in on exactly the same sentence I did (see below)!

      And yes – that is why all our governments are not interested in educating our children. All they do is keep them inside, fill their brains with filth and propaganda, and never ever teach them how to question, how to think for themselves.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Amen!

  • aPLWBinAK

    It’s things like that, that will get you put on the ‘drone list’.

    • http://navygentleman.com/cvn2 Red47

      He will be excoriated by the tolerant Left and all the “authentic” Blacks who use their color to extort.

      • aPLWBinAK

        Agreed. Nobody that gives a speech like that can be considered ‘BLACK black’ by Poopie Goldberg and other Progressives.

    • Landscaper

      Puts everyone of us in good company.

    • 1endtimes2020

      “Drone list” I like that.

    • Betsey_Ross

      I’ve known about Dr. Carson for years. He is/was a brilliant neuro-surgeon who is now the director of pediatric neuro-surgery at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. This guy isn’t even close to being on any of the Black Caucus’s or Hollywood Black’s radar. Since he isn’t a political animal or running for office they will let this go into wherever they put this information. This man actually does do much good in the world. Since they never heard of him, they figure no one else has either. The media will let this go and he is safe for now. He is now in a number of growing doctors that see Obama’s health care a debacle and the death of the best health care in the world. Bust the AMA!!!

  • marketcomp

    Wow! Very impressive! But the one person who didn’t look impressed was Obama. What Dr. Carson was saying seem so foreign to him about Black America and American history and one nation under God. O looked confused.

    • keyesforpres

      Not foreign….just go against what o believes in.

      • marketcomp

        You are correct and that was very obvious, keyesforores.

        • keyesforpres

          Oh, I knew you knew! :-)

    • tshtsh

      At least he did not give him the finger (it was close though). This is the first time I actually looked at the creature FLOTUS managed to clap must not be as far gone as b.o.

      • 1endtimes2020

        (It was close, though) You sure made me laugh. Thanks tshtsh

      • Patriot077

        Don’t kid yourself. She’s a believer in this transformation but she also knows the importance of social appearances.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jim-James/578078192 Jim James

      Of course he was confused. Obama learned how to “be black” by watching “Good Times”, not “The Cosby Show”.

      • las1

        OZero’s “blackness” comes not by experience, but by indoctrination at the feet of Frank Marshall Davis.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZVCGRG62NAGQXJ6ZNE4JCTVVTU Ray

    “If you educate a man, you liberate a man”. With so much “Education” in the US, why are people pushing their way to slavery to the federal government?

    • 1endtimes2020

      Education doesn’t always include intelligence.

    • aposematic

      Today’s American education teaches children how to eat a fish, not how to catch a fish.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZVCGRG62NAGQXJ6ZNE4JCTVVTU Ray

    “Poverty no longer bothered me, for I knew that it was temporary, I could change that”. NOT the government could change that! Obama is sitting right there and does not have ears to hear, nor eyes to see!

    • crosshr

      Obama were sitting there nursing his bruised ego. Silently, O kept reminding himself, ” …I’m the commander-in-chief, many people in the country went through HELL to get me back in the empty chair , people like this Dr. Benjiman Carson stand in the way of my accomplishment ( destroying a Great Nation, America )

    • 1endtimes2020

      That was my impression, also. Right on, Ray.

  • sjmom

    I remember seeing Dr. Carson on TV a number of years ago and was very impressed. This was a great speech today and in a very nice way he stuck it to Obama more than once.

    • 1endtimes2020

      Dr Carson made mincemeat out of the ridiculous, monotonous cliches.

    • tshtsh

      Guess he will not be back anytime soon if b.o. is around.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/GEXPRDETL4L3JER3HWCFONRXA4 allen

    Obama could learn from this man, if – IF only he could stay awake! It is obvious he thinks he has all the answers and listening isn’t something he needs to do. Sleep is something he does best, he even slept through the events of 9-11 (II). Ask the dead americans he didn’t take care of that night. SHAME on you BO and god rest their souls.

    • 1endtimes2020

      Imagine if The Great Deceiver had to sit through 54 minutes , instead of 27. He probably would have slumped so low in his bedchair, we’d only see the top of his head….amd maybe some snoring sounds.

  • EvaPepper

    Being a Baltimore resident, I have known of Dr. Carson for quite some time but only recently have heard him speak on topics other than surgery — twice on a local 30 minute show (once about his book, once about Obamacare.) This speech was awesome. I love how he imparts reason and information in such a clear,truthful and forthright manner. It is refreshing to hear him, without reservation, praise God and honor, with such love, this country. Thank you, Dr. Carson, for all you do.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ODSG4THJW3SRGYHSQ7KHU32U5Q 3D 81

    The longer this speech went, the longer Obamas face went as he realised this doctor was talking about him and his policies…

    • white531

      Exactly.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/ODSG4THJW3SRGYHSQ7KHU32U5Q 3D 81

        The more I think about this speech, the more I realise how great it was. Not the content, which was great in itself, but just the courage, The Faith, the integrity the delivery, the location and the setting.

        This guy stood up and stared down the President and told him what he needed to hear.

        Reminds me of a guy in the bible who stood up alone and talked nothing but Truth whether it offended people or not. In the end they crucified him.

        The ultimate smackdown was right at the end when the Good Doctor finished without shaking the hands of the president. I respect that kind of disrespect.

        • white531

          Well said, 3D. I don’t remember ever seeing Obama being so professionally dressed down in front of an audience. That it was a person of color, who is respected by everyone, made it even more effective.

  • white531

    Scoop, this will be my last comment of the evening, because I have an early day tomorrow.

    I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Best thing I have seen in six months on this site.

    Dr. Ben Carson is the living example of everything this nation stands for. Period.

    While I certainly enjoyed his testimony on what Freedom means to all of us, my main focus was on Obama, and watching him cringe, as he listened to every word.

    Quite certainly, he was not prepared, for what he had to sit there and listen to, from this successful Black American, who used the Freedom of America, to achieve personal greatness. Something Obama never did.

    A man not only immensely qualified in his field of Medicine and his specialty in that field, but qualified also, in both his thought and in his speech.

    He spoke for almost half an hour. No notes, no teleprompter. He spoke from his heart. Something Obama hasn’t done in his entire life.

    You will please take notice of the fact Obama never clapped once. Not until the end of Dr. Carson’s speech. He was sitting there the entire time, in absolute contempt of this man’s words. Because even though they are both the same color, that is the only human distinction they share.

    • 1endtimes2020

      Obama was thinking about his response to the speech, and what was the best he could say? “Prayer has a short shelf life”. Imagine him being among the Founding Fathers. Obama talks the talk, but doesn’t walk the walk, even though he says he will ‘make sure’ of everything…..and THAT’S supposed to take the place of prayer???
      Give us a break, Mr pResident!!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZVCGRG62NAGQXJ6ZNE4JCTVVTU Ray

    Amazing speech, done humbly before power. Obama must have been seething, yet he was given good, sound information on how our country could become great, but, again, he does not love this country, he hates it, and is bringing it to it’s knees. We also were given the cure, “If my people, who are called by MY NAME, will humble themselves and pray….” Perhaps we are being brought to our knees by a judgement of God so that we WILL pray.
    I see a similarity between the US and Israel, in the beginning of their sojourn in Egypt, they were doing very well but but then came a pharaoh that did not know about Joseph and enslaved the Israelite and caused them great harm. That period was a little over 200 years, (I know some will say it was 400 to 430 years, but this website gives a good reasoning for a little over 200; http://www.ensignmessage.com/archives/howlonginegypt.html ), it was not until God caused them to get on their knees by bring a tyrant over them that they indeed WOULD do it, before him they lived in prosperity and forgot God. Pharaoh caused them to cry out to God, so, in a way he was a blessing from God, BUT, they were begging to be relieved of the suffering that he was causing them, in this way he was a tyrannical beast they wanted to go away.
    So two lessons, we need to cry out to God that He will take this tyrant out of the way, BUT, we need to REMEMBER God after the tyrant is gone. God gives liberty, and what He gives, He can take away. Does that mean the Tyrant is not responsible for his hardened heart against all things God? In no way, but we bear a responsibility for our forgetfulness of the blessings of liberty He has given us as well. I am speaking to me, probably more than anyone else.

    • white531

      Perfect, Ray. Absolutely perfect.

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

      That was very well put Ray. I think about that as well.

    • TexasPGRRider

      Thanks Ray, there are times we each have to take a long look in the mirror, re-affirm our Faith in Thy Will be done, and continue to strive to be part of the solution rather than part of the problems we all face daily…Peace be with you….

    • 1endtimes2020

      And the media thought Obama gave eloquent speeches. Dr Carson was the moral guy America needed to have as President instead of Obama.

    • white531

      Ray, I enjoyed reading your comment.

      Getting rid of a bad thing in our lives, and leaving that space empty, only invites
      the next bad thing to come along and fill that space again.

      We need to remove the bad things and replace them with good things, and we need faith in God’s wisdom to help us do that.

  • white531

    One last thing. Dr. Carson exemplifies what we think of, as Conservative thought.

    By all accounts, he was the perfect candidate for Government Assistance. Black, broken family, grew up in hard times. Yet he wound up a successful Physician, and a man who enjoys the respect of his peers and the rest of us.

    At least all of us except Obama. I’m sure he loses sleep over it. :)

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/ODSG4THJW3SRGYHSQ7KHU32U5Q 3D 81

      and a “perfect” case for abortion…and Obama as well…

      But look what happens when Life is given a chance.

      • 1endtimes2020

        I have thought, many times, about how many great men and women America could have had among those 55 million aborted.

        • white531

          A friend of mine’s father used to have a saying. “The man hasn’t been born yet, who will solve the world’s population problem.”

          • 1endtimes2020

            When a country doesn’t replace it’s aging population with a young one, that’s where the real problem lies. China learned that in spades when it went after female babies, and now there’s a shortage of females. Mankind needs to stop listening to the voices of the devil’s disciples, and have faith in God. He has control over everything. People laugh at abstinence, yet millions of women who indulged in premarital sex, became pregnant and aborted, live the rest of their lives regretting it. So many have psychological effects, and so do men.God gave us marriage, and He obviously knew what He was doing. All we have heard for decades are reasons and exceptions to do the right thing, and look at the mess we’re in now.Even birth control drugs have side effects, and abortions has consequences, such as producing cancer down the road.
            God gave us the gift of sex, but wants us to use it responsibly. It is not a toy. I am happy to see women are having fewer abortions, but over one million each year is too much.
            Women always took on the role of controlling the sexual desires of men when sex was inappropriate, but have also been sold a bill of goods to get women to give in as a natural thing to do.
            This is what I have witnessed over the years. Haven’t you?

            • Go2Blazes

              Read online that the average Russian woman has SEVEN ABORTIONS in her lifetime. And now Putin is trying to encourage Russians to have more babies. Guess this kind of travesty/disaster is what one can expect when a nation goes the Godless-Communist route.

              • 1endtimes2020

                Thanks for the information. I didn’t know about 7 abortions. No wonder Russia had a diminishing population. Now, like China, Russia needs more babies. Imagine how 55 million young Americans would make a big difference in the economy. America’s homegrown holocaust, and counting. Yet, there are people who will defend the travesty/disaster you mention, and continue it.
                What a disappointment.

            • white531

              endtimes, as always I admire your comments. This one puts most of us on a thin edge. To be human, is to be sexual. To be sexual, therefore is human. Yes, it is a gift from God. Often misused.

              I am going out on a limb here, one I will most likely regret, but I think God fully intended for us to have sex. But only in the proper framework of understanding the consequences. The, “proper framework,” being the family. Each child born in that sacred union, gives greater glory to God.

              Hollywood and the Liberals have somehow changed that. I grew up in Tennessee in the environment of the Southern Baptist Church. I will leave the rest of that, to your imagination. Just so you know where my beliefs come from.

              Don’t worry, I have a point to all of this. This country is witnessing a breakdown of our culture, our morals, and our very History as a nation.

              The path we are on, is one of Marxism, to Socialism, and finally to Communism.

              It wouldn’t even be remotely possible, if we were an educated populace, paying attention to what is happening around us.

              Sadly, we are not. And there lies the problem. The, “Dumbing down of America,” is almost complete.

              This is why you can’t talk to the people you work with. Why you can’t talk to your neighbor, who lives right next door to you. Why even your own children question what you try to tell them. The Kool-Aid is powerful stuff.

              Welcome to the Progressive Indoctrination of America. I will have more to say on this, because of something I am working on. Not my idea, really. It’s that Canadian Duck, that we all know and love. :)

                Your commentary really touched my heart. I agree with everything you wrote. You have such a complete grasp of the present status of America.
                I have to say I have no idea what ‘Canadian Duck’ is all about. I’m looking forward to find out from you.
                Did you see the Prayer Breakfast with Dr Ben Carson? Obama looked very uncomfortable listening to his talk. He looked pensive, as if he was more interested in thinking of a good response to the speech, than paying attention to it. I was surprised when Obama’s response was “Prayer has a short shelf life”. Then why was he there, at a Prayer Breakfast? I was very gratified to read so many intuitive responses from TRS friends. I always feel I have hit the jackpot on refreshing thought when I open the site.
                So glad to hear from you White531.

What kind of nation would we have if men like Dr. Carson were leading us? An amazing, God-fearing, blessed nation! God bless you, Dr. Carson. You speak the truth without compromise!

    Gifted Hands…

    When Dr. Carson’s first book, Gifted Hands, was published in 1990, I gave a copy to the 2 pre-teen young children of a black couple, Mike, a fellow employee and his wife, also an employee, of 911 Emergency Services in Modesto, California.

    I asked the children to read the book and then each was to send me a book report.

    They each sent a one page book report to me a few weeks later.

    They should be in their early 30s now.

    I wonder… if they remember.

  • TexasPGRRider

    Thank you Dr. Carson for your heartfelt comments and testimony, and Thank You Scoop for posting them!!! B. O. seemed less than amused….

  • JohnCraven

    For over 20 years, Dr. Ben Carson has been a great hero for me.

    I first learned of him through a couple of videos produced by American Life League (ALL) for ALL’s tv series at the time entitled “Celebrate Life”. I still have those videos on VHS videotape: Program #24 – “The Claypools” in which Dr. Carson performed extraordinary operations on adopted children who had severe facial and cranial deformities and neurological problems and Program #38 – “Gifted Hands” which was an extraordinary time capsule of Dr. Carson’s life which covered his breathtaking accomplishments in his field of surgery.

    You can go on YouTube and see small segments of these videos in two videos entitled “Ben Carson Part 1″ [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhAjFqMeyaE ] and “Ben Carson Part 2″ [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrcBkAxCP1I ]. Part 1 covers the breakthrough surgery he performed on the brain of a child in the womb and the separation of the German twins who were conjoined at the head. The “Celebrate Life!” video “Gifted Hands” actually went into great detail about how Dr. Carson separated these twins. His solution was absolutely brilliant. Part 2 covers Dr. Carson talking to teenage students about his own youth and how violent he was when he was young and how it was the book of Proverbs which took his anger away.

    In Dr. Carson’s speech today at the National Prayer Breakfast I couldn’t help but note how he began his speech with readings from the Book of Proverbs.

    I couldn’t also help but notice how often Nero Obama looked totally bored to death while this great man was giving a truly great speech.

    The ending of Dr. Carson’s speech was absolutely fantastic when he talked about the War of 1812 200 years ago and Francis Scott Keyes’ inspiration for the Star Spangled Banner.

    His speech was totally not PC which made it all the more remarkable.

    I can’t help but feel that many people will be like Rush Limbaugh when they see his speech – simply in awe of the wisdom in what he had to say about so many things.

    I urge everyone to go to YouTube and look up the several videos about Dr. Carson. There’s even a multipart presentation of the Kuba Gooding Jr. made-for-tv movie about Dr. Carson with Hungarian subtitles you can watch but which is spoken in English.

    I’m deeply appreciative to Rush Limbaugh for giving so much airtime on his show today to Dr. Carson’s speech. I hope Rush invites him on his show even though I know Rush doesn’t need or usually have guests because Dr. Carson is a national treasure who can give us all pause for thought and great solutions to some of our worst problems like the Healthcare Savings Accounts Dr. Carson talked about.

    It was so great to see one of my heroes speaking so compelling and making Obama look so pathetic in the process.

    It reminded me of when Mother Theresa spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in front of Bill and Hillary Clinton some 20 years ago. Dr. Carson’s speech was that powerful.

    The best part was watching Dr. Carson walk off and not look to shake Obama’s hand!

  • nibblesyble

    Simply wonderful!

  • 80s_kid_wants_rainbow_back

    Saw this earlier on the Blaze and really enjoyed every minute of it. What I took away from this speech was a reminder to myself that I need to not get so angry at liberals to the point where I am constantly trash talking and cussing them to the ground. It is hard not to because its fun and it releases anger but I know God would prefer that I conduct myself in a loving and compassionate, polite and classy way like this man does. Thanks for the inspiration and reaffirmation of timeless values Mr. Carson! I’ll probably be cussing out liberals again in a few months but thank you for the reminder.

    And it was awesome to see someone so dignified disagree with so much of Obama’s domestic policies with him having to sit and listen…bwuaahahah. Mega refreshing to say the least.

    • sDee

      Many of the “liberals” are indeed true marxists with evil intent. They brought on what Carson laments. They need and deserve a full blown attack by us because they are the ones who have intentionally targeted all that makes America great. They are liberty’s enemy – never underestimate them.

      Watch this again but watch Obama. He would destroy Carson on the spot if he could. We have to go on the offense or commit our future generations to the slavery of this globalist neo-Marxism.

      • 80s_kid_wants_rainbow_back

        I totally agree. And I’ll be continuing to fight these people and their agenda for life, hopefully just with a cleaner mouth, lol.

        Obama puts his finger to his face several times, seems to be his trademark nervous/ angry tick. I’m sure he would have enjoyed this affair much more if it had been a Muslim prayer breakfast.

      What made it sting even worse, was that this man actually earned his position in society.

    I watched it again and watched Obama. I believe Obama gets everything single word that Carson said and the principles behind it.

    The marxists and communists know what de Tocqueville knew. It is their battle strategy – target and tear down what made America great. Dumb down the people so they do not know they are being destroyed from within.

    Obama is pissed. He knows Carson represents all that Obama must marginalize and remove. Obama is raising is nose in arrogance, does not applaud, even giving Carson his famous “finger routine”.

    Carson scored a direct hit on Obama. What we know, that Carson did not say…… that this is all by design, a 100 year manifesto by leftists like Obama, to tear down America.

  • JoeMontana16

    Damn I needed that. I’m so pumped up right now and its been sooooooo long since I’ve felt this way.

    Did anyone notice that neither Michelle or Obama clapped when he mentioned Jesus as his hero? Neither one did while many others did.

    • nosilasunny

      I noticed it too. I really liked what he said about taxes and class warfare. The solution of the 10% tithe being fair to all. The rich man would give 1 billion out of 10 billion and the person who made 10 dollars would give one. He said people say that doesn’t hurt the rich man, but where does it say we have to hurt anybody. Loved that!

    • white531

  • nosilasunny

    The juxtaposition of these two men could not be more striking. That is the bravest man in the world. He stood there humbly and spoke clearly about our problems and solutions to the person who thinks he is the solution but is actually the problem. He destroyed liberal policy and belief at every turn with humility, grace, and well reasoned arguments. Healthcare, poverty, education, taxes, speech, etc. He gave solutions for them all, if they would only listen and act. The president sat there with a look of disdain and arrogance and without respect. He raised his chin several times, one of his favorite gestures to put others beneath him. It didn’t work. He is supposed to be the most important leader in the room. Sorry but you were upstaged by a true American leader. Dr. Carson should be an inspiration to us all. Thank you for posting this!

  • cnswpassion

    Did you see Obama falling asleep? Says it all.

  • Arrrggghhh

    I saw Dr. Carson speak in person 5 or 6 years ago and was deeply moved. Shortly after that, I read all of his books (there are 4 or 5 in total). He is an amazing man with an amazing story. His Carson Scholars Fund is one of the very few charities that have been worthy of my money. I actually posted his name here several months back for Surgeon General (had Romney won). I highly recommend reading Gifted Hands, Take the Risk and America the Beautiful. There is even a version of Gifted Hands written for children.

    He is the #1 role model for my children.

  • Steven

    AAAAAmmmmmeeennnn!!!! This man got me up off of my seat! Commonsense! My God, how far this nation has fallen and it’s because of our leaders and the despicable media! This is the kind of message that should be heard in this nation but is being silenced. The GOP has been muffled, because they’ve muffled themselves! This man spoke commonsense conservatism right in front of the most left wing president in American history and made him like it. Where are such people in the GOP?

    The only thing holding this country back is ourselves. We are rotting and dying from within. We are easily the most powerful nation in the world but our strength is being sapped by illogical policies and political correctness. Our faiths are being destroyed by secularism and atheism being promoted by Hollywood and the media. We are tearing down the best in our society and spitting on the producers, the farmers and the entrepreneurs that make this country work. This is all happening while those who know better silence themselves or have been silenced for fear of being destroyed by the media and being frowned upon by colleagues.

    It’s time for us to wake up! Our nation is on the brink! The world stands in the balance. If the US fails there’s no hope in this world! Tyranny will prevail!

    If I could nominate this man to be president of the United States right now, I would! I demand that every prospective GOP candidate sit down with this man before they deign to ask for my vote. In the past, every president went to Billy Graham, but nowadays in his old age, it is more of a photo op than anything profound. We need regular citizens to speak the truth like Dr. Carson; speak commonsense and extol the values that established this nation as the greatest in human history. We have fallen away from this. We are no longer great. We are only great relative to the inferior nations in the world today, but compared to ourselves, we are but a shell. Our light is dimming.

    It’s time to renew, revive and restore this nation (as Palin said)! It has to come from us. Conservatives cannot allow another RINO to win the nomination. We need to stop dividing ourselves and nominate an articulate conservative with real life experience who can really connect with the American people and rouse them up to greatness! We can be great again and we can be greater than our greatest selves. Only if we demand this of our leaders.

    Thank you Dr. Carson! You have invigorated me this morning!

  • BeyondPolls

    ‘My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge’. He is so right.

  • BeyondPolls

    The best thing about Carson’s solutions: THE GOVERNMENT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!

  • colliemum

    “When you educate a man, you liberate a man” – indeed! It should come as no surprise that all which led to where we are now, good or bad, came from the invention of the printing press with moveable letters.
    Suddenly, books became affordable for ordinary people, suddenly pamphlets could be printed, suddenly information could be exchanges swiftly and to many. And the key: learning how to read and write!

    Going back in history, and thinking of the times when people fought for free education for all, when women were finally allowed to study, education was something poor parents strived to give to their children.
    And now? Now they can’t even be bothered to spell properly ..

    Aww, all I wanted to say was: great speech, very inspirational – and Mr BHO reduced to a couple of glares only, when Dr Carson spoke about health care. Otherwise, he was bored, and the readings from scripture, the talk about Jesus, about tithing – that went right over his head.

  • NoTrustInMen

    Great speech. But it made me sad, because we are so good about giving speeches, we are so good at inspiring others, we are so good about laying out the problems and yet we are so poor in the execution. Because in my own mind I could solve all the problems. Yet even in my family it is not me alone. In our country it is 300 million minds and opinions. How do we solve problems when 1000 people have a different opinion, by consensus, by democracy, well that’s where we are. And if the majority is not of your opinion do you live with it or do you take your toys and go home, or do they if the majority sides with you.

    This is hard stuff. Aren’t you tried of great speeches? Don’t you want to see what you believe come to fruition? But what if you are wrong? Would you change? We decide what is right and wrong, Adam and Eve gave us this opportunity to decide what is right or wrong, to be God. We are not very good at it.

    One’s idea of freedom will always hinder another’s idea of freedom. What changes would your idea of freedom make and would that hinder someone’s idea of freedom? Whose interpretation should prevail?

    People ask ‘Why doesn’t God step in and do something?’ And why does he allow so much evil? The truth is simply we want it this way. We want our freedom, we want to decide what is right and wrong and we don’t want anyone to tell us how we should live. The world today is the consequence of our independence from God. We give lip service to God and say we are willing to follow him, but just so far and only in that which we agree with him.

    If God stepped in, know for sure, that would reduce our freedoms. Think about it. Would pornography exits? What about the soft porn that exits in the movies we love. What about the music, is it compatible with scripture? Divorce would not be allowed, nor premarital sex. Think about it! People say they want to live by bible standards but do they really? Yes people are imperfect, and we excuse our mistakes, but if this was law. There are some who think abortion is wrong, and if you put God in this argument then what about everything else he says is wrong, are you as passionate against those things also? He puts lying in the same category as adultery.

    Oh, well, another Great speech.

    • Steven

      That’s the reason for the word consensus. That’s why as powerful as Carson’s ideas were, even he recognized that in order for this nation to soar, we need a right wing and a left wing bound together. In other words, we have to find a way to bind together the high ideals of both sides. The Left at the end of of the day believes in justice, equality, social cohesion, and economic security. The Right believes in opportunity, freedom, self-determination, and economic upward mobility. All these ideals are great, but the democratic process is meant to find a way to meld them.

      The Left believes their ideals are achieve through government, the Right believes their ideals are achieved through empowered individuals (family, free market, localism). There’s merit in both, but the extremes of both are dangerous too. Too much government stifles freedom, too much individualism can lead to social upheaval (with some groups excluding others). We need a good balance, where we value both government (proper role) and the individual. I think the U.S. is close to achieving this, but we have tipped too far to the Left in recent years and it’s threatening individual freedom.

      The problem is we have leaders that don’t recognize the merit of the ideas of both sides. In a way, we do need a squishy middle in order for there to be consensus. Or we need the American people to be wise enough to swing the extremes in order to achieve balance. Do you have confidence in the American people, that once they’ve had their fill of one extreme they can swing back? We’ll see in 2016.

      • 1endtimes2020

        Some things should not be compromised. If they are, that’s the slippery slope. The slippery slope gains momentum and consequences disappoint everyone, sooner or later.
        What has happened, morally, to the world, is a perfect example of that.

      • NoTrustInMen

        Well said by the way. It does seem to tip back and forth as one idea seems to dominate until the people have had enough and then it tips again. In the meantime things get worse and worse (morals, economy). All groups have contributed to what we see today.

        How much more of this can we stand? Is the solution that there is no real solution, only guesses.

        I am general a person who looks for the good in people, yet I understand that we need guidance and principal to look up to. As long as people think their freedom is all that counts things will continue to get worse.

        I have the freedom to play music in my care, but does that freedom give me the right to play it so loud that it disturbs others or exposes children to foul language? Whose version is correct and if I impose my view then the person who wants to play his music loud.

      • Watchman74

        The left isn’t what it used to be, the left has increasingly moved from moderate to radical. There not interesting in playing nice. They want everything there way and they want to destroy the right. Compromise usually results in them taking a step forward while we take a step backward.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Dr. Carson is one of the few who have achieved great success, fame, respect and wealth who has made a practice of giving back – wisely and generously – giving not just money, but incentive to the recipients to work hard, achieve and become givers too. The Carson scholarships are given on the basis of both academic achievement and humanitarian spirit – being concerned for others.

    Damn you, Scoop – I just blew my data plan watching this video! But thanks for posting!! Skeeter’s bored, uninterested body language in response to this provocative and inspiring speech says it all.

  • poljunkie

    Now that’s a well intentioned leader!

  • NYGino

    Dr. Carson might be looking for a good tax attorney soon.

  • mommyTWO2

    This was fantastic!!!!! Everyone in this country should listen to this speech. Maybe if we had a President and administration who thought this way we would NOT be in a path of socialism.

  • steprock

    Wow. Just wow.

    And I cannot believe his guts in talking like that in front of BHO, knowing full well that a lot of what he was saying was flying in his face!

    It’s a long talk, but I hope you guys will take the time to watch it.

    • PhillyCon

      Guts and SPINE! Maybe, the Republicans in DC (and some Governors) can learn something.

  • objective123

    His quip about lawyers is not true. Lawyers are trained to research the law & apply the law with the facts. That is what they are taught to do. What happens after they go to law school is another thing. Those who are ethical lawyers and respect the Constitution like myself hold true to the true mantra of being a lawyer.

  • objective123

    Look at Obama pist that Carson is exposing his true intent for America. Seek, Kill & Destroy.

  • MissMyGuy

    Just watching Obamas face was worth it. Having him forced to sit there without opening his mouth and listen.

  • DebbyX

    Have you ever witnessed such disinterest by a President of these United States at the National Prayer Breakfast? What a disgrace!! He never applauded………..NOT ONCE for this talented doctor and awe inspiring speaker. I do believe he got up way before his usual wake up time of say………noon! He was still wiping the sleep from his eyes. I was glad that the good doctor strode off the stage with nary a look back!

    Every idea he spoke of flew in the face of this not so presidential failure. How long can we endure this guy? My blood pressure is sky high.

    Bravo, Dr. Carson..

  • DebbyX

    SPINELESS Barry never even straightened up to applaud. Watched this twice and get more infuriated by the minute. You can see the look of contempt on his face.

    What’s this he says. Someone better than me at captivating an audience. OFF WITH HIS HEAD!

    • stage9

      I think he was just sleeping.

  • patriotismforever

    As I listen to Dr. Benjamin Carson, black philanthropic doctor, tout those ideals which have made America great, successful and victorious, pride in my country again inspires me to sing, “America the Beautiful”. Dr. Carson’s speech at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast ought to be read by every singer whose rendition of our national anthem is to be televised or seen by a large audience.

  • patriotismforever

    Dr. Carson meets the criteria for the original usage of the word “liberal” in the sense of liberality of disposition, benevolent, prone to giving graciously, to cheering other souls; “a son of the kingdom”. How nice and worth remembering was his description of the origin of our national anthem through Francis Scott Key’s patriotic vision! re-instilling pride in this country and hope for a favorable outcome.

  • stage9

    WOW! That was incredible!

  • msverde1

    Gifted hands and a gift of fearlessness to speak the truth. Dr. Carson is an American hero and a role model for all to follow. Little boys or girls, it is okay to become a surgeon, physician, CEO, CFO, lawyer, University chancellor, et al… Just do it!! I love this man and his message!!!

  • ctmom

    Amazing what a poor black boy raised by a single mother can accomplish! No…..not Barack Obama…Dr. Ben Carson!

  • http://twitter.com/Buckeyemom1776 Therese

    I could see Dr. Carson as President Carson in 2016.

  • 3boojums

    interesting to watch king Obamachadnezar squirm as one of his subjects publicly “rips him a new one”

  • EducationalLeader

    This is a great message for all children. I am truly ashamed of myself for all of the poor me moments I have allowed. God bless this Great Man

  • DINORightMarie

    Dr. Ben Carson is the subject of a movie starring Cuba Gooding, Jr. called “Gifted Hands” and is a real, live American HERO!!! Brilliant and gifted, and patriotic. How wonderful!

    Ben Carson for President!! <3

  • maquignon

    I have a new hero in Dr Ben Carson. What a contrast between Carson, a man of honor, integrity and character and Barack Obama, totally lacking in all three virtues. What a contrast: Carson – no excuses, Obama – blame everyone else for your failures; Carson – flat tax, Obama – progressive mess; Carson sensible health care, Obama – the worst piece of legislation ever passed in Obamacare; Obama – disdain for the flag, Carson – respect for the flag. Down with Obama; long live Carson!!!!

    • PVG

      Thanks for summing this up so well. BO’s body language said it all……inferiority complex. And when you are a narcissist, that is unacceptable.

  • Pamela10010

    wow, someone was sure not comfortable… and even fidgeting and rubbing himself all over his face, nervously having to sit and listen to a brilliant thinking conservative minded neurosurgeon hard working brother

    talk about the importance of personal responsibility. OUCH,,, not good subject for a big govt prezzz, who wants to get everyone dependent on big brother.

    It was also obvious that the chicago politician really doesn’t like NOT being the
    center of attention, especially while an articulate man of higher learning
    and who has actually done something in life other than politLicking
    is making more sense than any politician ever has especially with his teleprompter speechifying to audiences and the kissass press who never challenge him deeply on issues.

    • white531

      Pamela, your comment nailed the problem. Welcome to Scoop. I seem to be saying that a lot these days, as more and more Conservatives, and no small number of Liberals, find their way to The Right Scoop.

      It is true what you say. It is something all of us have always known. Ordinary Americans are the best among us to lead our country. That is what our Founders tried to tell us.

      I am sorry, but Politicians in this country, have lost so much credibility, that used car salesmen are beginning to celebrate their existence.

    Dr Carson on Fox: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB-DoTovS20&feature=youtu.be

    BTW: the people on the Daily Paul like this as much as the people here. Let’s learn to focus on what we agree on rather than what we disagree on.

  • tinker_thinker

    I really liked his speech thanks for posting it! I wonder if he would be interested in running for office?

  • carmtom13

    Wow! Where has this man been? Loved his speech.

  • JohnCraven

    Dr. Carson talked at some length with admiration of how several of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were doctors and said flat out that doctors should get in the public arena of ideas in Congress and elsewhere.

    I took this to mean that he is possibly consdering a run for political office.

    Shouldn’t we be asking him about this and whether he would consider being a TEA Party candidate to run against Barbara Mikulski?

    • white531

      Are you mad? You actually want me to believe that even the most common person among us, could actually perform as a leader of this great nation, and make the difficult decisions necessary, to take this country forward on the difficult path we face?

      Surely, you can’t be serious. How could you believe that an ordinary citizen could possibly possess the wisdom necessary, to lead us on the correct path?

      We need Politicians. People who have vast experience in government. People who know how to spend our tax money wisely. We would just waste it.

      Let’s face it. Left to ourselves, we are a pitiful lot. We wouldn’t last a week, without the Liberals and the Federal Government.

      The sooner you get that through your thick heads, the sooner we can begin to make some real progress toward a New World Order.

      Why did God give us Conservatives? They are such an impediment to our future!

      Don’t get me wrong. I know they mean well. It’s just that they don’t understand what we are trying to do. I just wish they would get out of the way of progress.

      We are almost there. They are the last thing in our way. That, and that damned Second Amendment!

  • white531

    Given the Freedom that this country provides even the poorest individual among us, the success story that this great man represents, should not come as any real surprise.

    If anything, Dr. Ben’s story should be the average normal story of any American in this country.

    Let me outline it for those of you from Rio Linda.

    He looked around at his surroundings. He didn’t like what he saw. He said, “I can do better than this.” He proceeded to apply himself in study. He went without sleep and he studied. He first became a Doctor. He then became a great Physician. Finally, he became one of the greatest Physicians on the Planet. Finally, he became one of the greatest human beings on this planet.

    Finally, he made a speech, in front of this worthless leader we call our President, and in this speech, he told this worthless President what he thought of his leadership, or lack thereof. And this worthless President did not like it. And I enjoyed it immensely.

    None of this would have been possible of course, without the Federal Government. Interestingly enough, he did it anyway.

    Leadership does not come from government. It comes from the people. It comes from you and me.

  • Nukeman60

    This was an excellent speech. I’m sure Obama’s ears were burning big time throughout. I even noticed him possibly texting on his BlackBerry during the Obamacare portion of the speech.

    One thing that caught my eye in the beginning was that Obama did not smile for the dog joke, but did smile for the bird joke. I’m thinking with both of those jokes, food came to mind and how tasty both the dog and expensive bird would be.

    • white531

      The Nuke never fails to give me a smile.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/CQGRGORBLGJB2W3C3JHZZAWCIE Linda

    Praise God!!! This was God speaking through this man!!

    Through the whole thing, I never ONCE saw Obama give an affirming nod, a real smile, or clap! He did clap and rise when others did at the end… but that’s all! He looked as if he could fall asleep! That is so said!

    Thank you, Jesus, for this man of God, for his family, for his testimony, and for his strength and conviction as a Christian!!!

    God’s Love & Blessings,

  • Turps

    This is the type of American that made the nation great

  • Rhonda Cirillo

    Heck I would vote for him for president-where is the ballot? Great speech! It isn’t often anyone gets the opportunity to say anything to Obama’s face. He hides from anyone that does not agree with him. This man showed great character, honesty and intelligence today. I have heard the ‘Outrage’ from the left already so he nailed it.

  • Tim

    I don’t know anything about him, but what are his thoughts about Obama? How does he fell about him?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HLJ7MEIDPFNRKPXFU5DMG6KQCM Colonel Robert Neville

    Ah, all is revealed of the true Obama in his body language, expressions and lack thereof. What a socialist elitist creep from Marxist leftist and Muslim creeps Obama is…and what a great man Carson shows himself to be and what a great mother he comes from. The fruit rarely falls far from the tree…No, really. Colonel Neville.

  • PVG

    BRAVO!! BO just got schooled!

  • TLN2

    Dr. Carlson for President????

    • PVG

      In a heartbeat!

    • miklyd

      YES YES YES…HELL YES!!

  • Gecko

    I am not a fan of staff written ‘canned’ speeches due to Obama but Mr. Carson speaks of logic most Americans can relate to. He also spoke for roughly 25 minutes and it appears teleprompters were not used.

  • miklyd

    looks like obama is duly squirming in his chair…he is NOT liking what he’s hearing…after all, keep ‘em stupid & politicians of his caliber will keep getting elected…bravo, Dr. Carson…you are right on the mark!

    Thank you for posting this…. wonderful man, wonderful speech, a speech from the heart, of love of life and humanity. Encouraging words. I hope Barry took note of what this man had to say. (Barry Soetoro = Barack Obama,,,, or who ever he is..)

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/WOSP562P53IMOOYWEUXYOCV66Q Cassandra

    This speech is awesome!!!! Hits the nail right on the head,,, and I don’t think this man really knows what nerves he hit to the govt and their “agenda”…. ex: Big Pharma (vaccines, chemo, etc) and comments regarding lobbyists, etc… cure for cancer (which we have but Big Pharma covers up),,, and the education of our people!! YES!!! Educate us and have transparency! Things our govt does not want us to have!!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/WOSP562P53IMOOYWEUXYOCV66Q Cassandra

    I don’t think Dr Carson really knows the true agenda’s of our govt,,,,,, but he hit the nail on the head in many ways. Awesome speech! I have a feeling Barry was just fuming over this speech!! LOL……. GO DR CARSON!!! The govt/Big Pharma has cures to diabetic neuopathy, cancer, “HIV”, etc…. there’s no money in wellness,,,, Big Pharma makes big money off chronically ill people, kids damaged by vaccines, and contributes to the dumbing down, the killing off of population per their sick/evil agenda.

  • harglide

    It is very, very sad that this man has so much greatness and good to say and all Nobama can do is nod off and text his buddies! Makes me want to puke!!

  • http://911dj.com Greg Legakis

    Obama, hardly smiled, last to clap, last to stand, first to sit after applause. Prideful head cocked in the air the whole time.

    All you need to know about our arrogant leader summed up with a handful of body language tells.

    Carson was brilliant!

  • M57K63

    How refreshing is DR Carson ! I also saw him on Hannity and he was fantastic. I wish he’d enter the political arena.I watched our leaders reaction thruout the speech and he looked like he had a relapse of whatever he had in the first debate ! I hope we see more of DR carson in the future.

  • SickofPoliticks

    Dear Lord, please give us more men and women like Dr. Carson. We need them desperately.
    In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Iv’e heard of Dr. Carson a couple of years back ,but after his speech at the NPB.He floored me. This man had simple solutions ,both on the economy and health care for our troubled times. And the look on Obamas’ face was that of anger and spite truely,he made all of the Pres. speaches seem full of hot air!I would vote for this man if he ran for office.But I bet other politicians (Dems-Reps-Indps.)would not appreciate him as much as the common folk would.He actually puts his money were his mouth is .Kudos to you Dr. B. Carson!….
