Media Bias: Ben Carson Edition

My Fellow Americans,

Shame on the media for saying I didn’t stab my good friend or close family member (not named) Bob in the belt buckle with a knife! How dare they irresponsibly push their liberal agenda to say I did not commit aggravated assault and attempted murder when I was young, only later to be redeemed. I did indeed stab, let’s say, “Bob” and he knows who he is and I’m quite sure he will surface very soon to tell this horrific tale of my genuinely scary anger-management issue. If you really want to know how antisocial I could be before I walked the path of Jesus, you should also check behind the false wall in my basement.

This is why I should be your president. 

Let me tell you about media propaganda. The liberal elites who wish to destroy me keep spouting propaganda about my “involvement” with Mannatech -- yes, that’s right, as in manna from heaven. They sell nutritional supplements that I personally use, and wrote about in my book. I may have slightly given four paid speeches for them, including ones after they settled with the Texas state attorney general for $7 million for claiming to cure disease. And my photo with their logo might have appeared on their Web site, of course I appeared in their videos saying…



The wonderful thing about a company like Mannatech is that they recognize that when God made us, He gave us the right fuel. And that fuel was the right kind of healthy food. You know we live in a society that is very sophisticated, and sometimes we’re not able to achieve the original diet. And we have to alter our diet to fit our lifestyle. Many of the natural things are not included in our diet. Basically what the company is doing is trying to find a way to restore natural diet as a medicine or as a mechanism for maintaining health.

And I might have mentioned in a public speech that they partially endowed a $2.5 million chair in my name at Johns Hopkins University. But here’s what the biased so-called journalists don’t get: when I said that, IT WASN’T TRUE. That is why I’ve taken down the video from my Web site of that speech.

As I said on that farce of a debate to my obvious political enemy Carl Quintanilla of CNBC, I didn’t have an involvement with them. That is total propaganda, and this is what happens in our society. Total propaganda.

I don’t know about these liberal “relationship exaggerators,” but where I come from working with a group of sleazy powder pushers for ten solid years does not constitute a relationship. If I’d been close with them, duh, I would have stabbed them. This is all corroborated in the Bible, by the way. Do you happen to know what is stored in the Great Pyramids, aka the Pharaohs’ Granaries? I’ll tell you what: GlycoSlim, GlycoBOOM, GI-Zyme, ImmunoSTART, MannaCLEANSE and Uth Rejuvenation Crème.  These are all fine products. I use them. I SIMPLY DON’T KNOW WHO MAKES THEM.

Let me address the matter of my military career, since so many misstatements have been propagandized. When I was a young man, I was approached by General George Washington, who was impressed both with my dramatic lifting of myself by my bootstraps and my knife technique. “Young Ben,” he said, “you feem to handle a bayonet with ftrength and fkill. You are hereby appointed to the U.F. Military Academy at Weft Point."

“But General,” I protested. “I have other dreams. I shall decline your offer for a full non-existent scholarship. But no need to make a big fuss about this. Let’s just keep this whole episode between us.” True story. By the way, there was a picture of our meeting in my college newspaper. I have a clipping, but I will not produce it for national security reasons.

The media, of course, will not take my word for it. You didn’t see them nosing around into Barack Obama’s past, or Bill Clinton’s or Thomas Eagleton’s. Or Satan’s. No, no. They just want these “gotcha” moments. For instance, if they want to know about my fitness for office, why are they not focusing on my love of God and instead turning it into a reality show about the so-called faulty “arithmetic” in my flat tax proposal, which they clam would add an additional $1 trillion-plus to the deficit, but they don’t even bother to see my plan to give the budget GlycoSlim?

Can you say “witch hunt?”

My fellow Americans, I offer you two pieces of advice.

1)     Don’t let the media distract you.

2)     Stay away from Popeyes in Baltimore. It’s filled with phantoms with guns.

    Well put. Are you going to write a similar one on Clinton bold faced lying to the families of 4 dead Americans while telling her daughter the truth? Or did you do that and I missed it?

    Well done Ben. Great exercise in freedom of speech and callin' em like you see 'em.
    As has so often beeen pointed out, its pretty impossible keeping their story straight when someone is reinventing it as they go along.

    To Laurence Rutter:  Never ask a zinger if you don't know the answer.  I actually have called Hillary Clinton a liar -- on the Chris Matthews program on MSNBC -- concerning some of her 2008 campaign claims.  In exactly those words: "Hillary Clinton is a liar."  Then there was her Bosnia tarmac "under fire" fish story.  And the Rose Law Firm....

    However, the Benghazi supposed scandal is not one. There is no there there. The only scandal is that the taxpayers have funded a three-year witch hunt for damaging political dirt and come up with zilch.

    All-things-contraversial was (and still is) a campaign strategy that worked for Trump, and now working for Carson.  The challenge is to limit media coverage for contraversies that sell ads. Wishful thinking, I know, but how else would we address real policy issues?  Great piece.  Laughed out loud.

    Laurence, you'll never see it from this clown Garfield... all he does is hatchett jobs on conservatives. I learned long ago that everything they say BEFORE "However" is total BS and what follows "However" is their true feeling on the topic (see above)

    Ahhhh... nothing gets conservative whackadoos worked up like Benghazi. Seems like just yesterday I was sitting in my office awaiting the release of the Ken Starr report on the Internet. Then, the act -- if not the report's conclusion -- was history making. Good to see the Internet still delivers.
