Newscast Media WASHINGTON—At the annual Conservative Political Action Committee
(CPAC) event organized by Republicans, Dr. Ben Carson gave a fiery speech on
Saturday March 8, vowing to continue to defy political correctness.
“The majority of people in this country have common sense, the problem is, they have
been beaten into submission,” Carson said.
He also described the methods used by the media to bully people, and named Saul
Alinsky as the source of those principles. CONTINUE TO FULL STORY>>
Newscast Media BALTIMORE—Newscast Media was unable to attend and cover CPAC 2013 due to prior commitments, but we are bringing you the speech that attendees were most impressed by, given by Dr. Benjamin Carson. A free-flowing and natural speaker who does not speak from a script, Carson gave a speech that appealed to the intellect rather than emotions of the attendees.
“If I were trying to destroy this nation…let’s say you just magically put me into the White House, [applause] let’s say, somebody was there, and they wanted to destroy this nation. What would you do? Let me tell you what I would do,” he said. “First of all, I would create division among the people. I would have everybody pitted against each other, because a wise man by the name of Jesus said, a house divided against itself, cannot stand. And then, I would encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality, for principles that made and sustained the country…And then, I would undermine the financial stability of the country, and drive it so far into debt, that there was absolutely no chance that it would recover, and I would weaken the military, and destroy the morale of the military. That’s what I would do, and I guarantee you, it would work. Now, the question is, it appears coincidentally, that those are the very things that are happening right now.”
On the media
“It’s almost laughable, some of the things that I hear people say, that criticize you, they say, ‘He’s a neurosurgeon, he couldn’t know anything about economics.’” Carson then brings the audience to a thunderous applause when he responds by saying, “It [economics] is not brain surgery.” Watch video

“I can tell you this even as a lowly brain surgeon, if you have the highest corporate tax rates in the world, then of course corporations are going to have money elsewhere. Corporations are not in business to be corporate welfare organizations, they are there to make money—a wise government know how to use that, to their advantage.”
Carson concluded by saying, “People don’t want to talk about God, and don’t you dare mention Jesus Christ, and this is supposed to be a country where we have freedom of religion and freedom of speech? We need to know, that we are not each other’s enemies in this country. It is only the political class that derives power, by creating friction. It is only the media, that derives it’s importance, by creating friction—that uses every little thing to create this chasm between people.”
Newscast Media WASHINGTON, DC—When Barack Obama invited Dr. Benjamin Carson to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. Carson, a Conservative neurosurgeon, is a straight-talker who is unbothered by political correctness (PC) and made it clear before making his speech that some people would find his style offensive. The liberal media is up in arms and saying Carson lectured Obama, instead of giving a speech to the audience.
After his speech, many Conservatives are now encouraging him to run for office, in order to implement some of the ideas he presented to Obama. Yet the problem Carson would run into is that he has been supremely endowed with extraordinary intelligence—and the media would do anything and everything they can to destroy and discredit him.
Below is the viral video of Carson at last Thursday’s Prayer Breakfast:
After the speech, Carson was interviewed by Sean Hannity about the response and reaction he received after the National Prayer Breakfast:
Carson told Hannity, “We have imposed upon people restrictions on what they can say, on what they can think. And the media is the largest proponent of this, crucifying people who say things really quite innocently.”
