President Obama: At School at the National Prayer Breakfast

Dr. Benjamin Carson at the National Prayer Breakfast, 2013

Dr. Benjamin Carson, a black pediatric neurosurgeon with Johns Hopkins Hospital, gave a stunning speech at Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast. It was stunning not so much for providing information we’d never heard before, but because he told the simple and un-sugared truth while standing only a few feet away from President Barack Obama. Had I known something like this would have occurred, I do believe I would have flown to Washington D.C. to attend.

He talked about the plague of political correctness that has turned everyone into moral cowards…and enabled the Left to get away with hideous immorality:

 “We’ve got to get over this sensitivity and it keeps people from saying what they really believe.”

He talked about the regressive, Marxist tax system we have today and how God’s system-a flat rate for everyone-is the most fair system:

“What we need to do is come up with something simple. And 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 a tithe. Well some people say, ‘well that’s not fair,’ because it doesn’t hurt the guy who made 10 billion dollars. Where does it say you have to hurt the guy? He just put $1 billion in the pot. We don’t need to hurt him. It’s that kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands. That money needs to be back here, building our infrastructure and creating jobs.”

He talked about the $16 trillion debt we’ve incurred, and how it would take 507,000 years for you to count that high at the rate of one number per second.

He talked about a better system than our Marxist Socialist Security and Medicare system:

Here’s my solution: When a person is born, give him a birth certificate, an electronic medical record, and a health savings account to which money can be contributed — pretax — from the time you’re born ’til the time you die.

He also described, using a Biblical reference, the proliferation of the liberal philosophy and ideology perfectly:

With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor, but by knowledge the righteous are delivered. - Psalm 11:9

(We can only hope that by the power of God’s Holy Spirit, Barack Obama heard this)

And he talked about a whole lot more.

This one man had more guts, to tell the unvarnished truth like this in the very presence of Marxist-in-Chief President Barack Obama, than any 100 Republican politicians put together.  I am reasonably certain God is going to bless Dr. Carson richly for being obedient.

    A perfunctory, reluctant applause when Dr. Carson finished was the only time Obama displayed anymore that a frozen smirk-no applause, no affirming nods and no hint that he gave Dr. Carson’s remarks anything but facile disdain.

    Dr. Carson courageously said what he believes, as do very many Americans. The One took it all as personal offense. After all, Dr. Carson’s recommendations would strengthen America, validate our Constitution and move us closer to that “more perfect union” of individual liberty and prosperity. These are all antithetical to the “transformation” envisioned my the Marxist-in-Chief.

    I recall Mother Teresa dressing down Bill Clinton on abortion at an earlier prayer breakfast. This is another “God” moment.
