It’s a national emergency! Dr. Carson to the Oval Office, stat!
By Richard Corbeil – The Apopka Chief – Founded in 1923
MAY 8 – Despite the continuing insanity in Baltimore and marches in other major cities, I feel good this week as my number one pick, Dr. Ben Carson, announced his candidacy for U.S. president.
When a man rises from an elementary school with a nickname of “Dummy”, to be one of the most brilliant neurosurgeons in the world, he is the perfect candidate to reverse the plunge of our great nation into economic mediocrity, racial war and loss of liberty.
I’m going to present a brief summary of Dr. Carson’s successes for my readers to assess in comparison to other candidates from the GOP as well as the Dems’ Doomsday Part II – Hillary.
Dr. Carson is a retired Professor of Neurosurgery, Plastic Surgery, Oncology and Pediatrics, and the Director of Pediatric Surgery at John Hopkins Medical Institutions. He is also the author of five bestselling books – “Gifted Hands”, “Think Big”, “The Big Picture”, “Take the Risk” and his latest, “America the Beautiful”. He performed the world’s first successful surgical separation of Siamese twins joined at the head.
He serves on the boards of the Kellog Company, Costco and Academy of Academics, among others and is an Emeritus Fellow of the Yale Corporation.
And, putting his money where his mouth is, he and wife Candy, cofounded the Carson Scholars Fund to counteract America’s crisis in education by identifying and rewarding academic role models in 4th through 11th grades regardless of race, creed, religion and socio-economic status. The fund has over 5,000 scholars in all 50 states and D.C.
Speaking of education, he wrote in his recent syndicated column, “While proponents of Common Core may see benefits to such a system, how can the initiative be effective if it imposes confusing experimental teaching methods that our teachers cannot adequately adopt and our parents cannot actively support?”
I am personally stunned at the high rates of Illiteracy and dropouts in public high schools and colleges and unemployment among young black people in this country, leading to them being used in riots and election of self-serving, greedy politicians and living empty criminal lives.
A perfect example of this greedy motivation is the recent prison sentencing of eight education personnel in the Atlanta public school system for giving students, in advance, answers for exams, leading to false high grades with financial rewards, promotions and bonuses for these “educators”.
Why are some of the most brilliant people in this nation older black people who escaped the liberals’ attack on what used to be the number one rated education system on the planet? Now, we’re lucky to rank above Bulgaria in science, math or reading.
Next to Dr. Carson, most of my favorite syndicated columnists are black American professors and intellectuals. One is Dr. Thomas Sowell of Stanford University, who, writing recently of Obama’s Iran Agreement charade stated: “Barack Obama dismissed the thought of America being vulnerable to a “small country” like Iran. Iran is in fact, larger than Japan was when it attacked Pearl Harbor, and Iran has a larger population. If Japan had nuclear bombs, World War II could have turned out very differently.”
Similarly, another favorite black intellectual is Economics Professor Walter Williams of George Mason University. In an April 9 column, Professor Williams shed some light on the many mistakes we make in foreign aid.
“Despite decades of economic aid,” he wrote, “many recipient nations are worse off now than they were before they received development assistance. What foreign aid usually accomplishes is to enable tyrants to retain power, letting them be able to pay off cronies and buy military equipment to suppress their people and engage in military ventures.
“Foreign aid also enables tyrants to set up multimillion-and even multi billion-dollar personal accounts in foreign banks.”
In a March 22 column, black Pastor Mychal Massie, an outstanding writer, summed up the failure of this administration as demonstrated by a public school in Pine Bush, New York that allowed a senior class president to deliver the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag in Arabic.
Massie wrote, “I emphatically state that Muslims are not welcome to come here and form their own idea of government and establish their own definition of what is acceptable based on their so-called religious beliefs. This is the United States of America. It is not an Islamic outpost.”
Why are these intellectuals invaluable to America? Their efforts, intellects and sacrifices to reach the American dream are the essence of what we will need to return our country to its former, incomparable greatness.
They are the living breathing proof that the rioting, looting, burning and killing does not come from the color of the skin, but originate from individuals of treachery, greed and self-importance, i.e. egomaniac Individuals as described above by Professor Williams.
I am, of course, speaking of the Al Sharptons, Michael Moores, Bill Clintons, Barack Hussein Obamas, etc. Those individuals who don’t really care if the Pledge of Allegiance is done in Arabic; or Russian, for that matter.
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret, whether it be for good, or whether it be for evil.” Ecclesiates 12:13 and 14.
