Ben Carson

The lies and half-truths are stacking up against Dr. Ben Carson's hopes of becoming the next president. The retired brain surgeon now admits he lied about applying, being accepted, and receiving a full scholarship to West Point Military Academy.

West Point does not offer scholarships. The academy pays tuition and all costs for accepted students.

In his best-selling book, Gifted Hands, Carson wrote that he applied for admission to the academy. But his campaign manager now admits, “He considered it but in the end did not seek admission."

The West Point gaffe is the most recent in a series of lies and half-truths uncovered by the liberal media which is digging up dirt on Dr. Carson because of his anti-gay marriage stance.

The leftist media has reported on other contradictions in Carson's book, including the claim that he once stabbed a childhood bully and he was once held up at gunpoint at a Popeyes Restaurant in the 1980s.

The media is on a mission to eliminate Hillary Clinton's opponents by running a well-orchestrated smear campaign against her challengers.

If Dr. Carson was a gay marriage proponent there is no doubt that his past misdeeds would not see the light of day -- just as the media covers for President Obama who has more skeletons in his closet than a graveyard.

Carson has a slight edge over Republican frontrunner Donald Trump in some left-leaning polls.

    That's the way it's always been done.

    If Ben was as smart as he thinks he is, he would have gotten ahead of this story by pointing out the inconsistencies in his book and blaming them on a ghostwriter or a lapse in communication.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Yaaaaaasssssssss!!!

  • Datsmdubya2u2

    right cause regarding the robbery if it happened Popeyes would have called the police even if he didn't.. they prolly would have had to search the paper files but somebody could have found a police report

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    HE's a own time gawd, yes he ill...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I wasn't even talking about that part. My mom and I were robbed at knife point by a crackhead outside of Rite Aid. We didn't call the police and Rite Aid didn't even know about it. I was talking about his alleged applying to and receiving a scholarship from West Point. Like that wouldn't be documented.

  • Just Keya

    Ben is on meds. Only logical explanation as to the stories he is telling. It's all in his head.

  • Datsmdubya2u2

    oh yeah i agree with you i was just saying but ben said he was in line at popeyes so i feel like the manager would have called the po pos.. im sorry that happened to you and your mom tho..

    He doesn't care....touched. lol.

  • GuestSTAR

    Poor Ben, he's out of his league and like Trump, is just making it up as he goes along. At some point that, 'I'm not a politician' excuse won't fly because he is a politician, he's out there politicking. Seems like everyday there's something NEW with him and its never anything positive. He's either saying something idiotic or doing something idiotic, like sending a rappin video to the black community, SMH. He's starting to look clownish and becoming a laughingstock.

  • Datsmdubya2u2

    i gotta job interview an im outta deordorant.. see yall!

    I'm sure this West Point news story, first reported by Politico, is a result of Carson's interview this morning with CNN's New Day host Alysin Camerota where Carson called her and CNN out for putting so much focus on trivial stuff like trying to corroborate his account of his violent youth rather than focusing on real issues that are affecting folks lives. I could tell Alysin and her news producer who was speaking in her ear, were not happy about being called out. Then moments later Alysin interviwed former Gov. Sununu, where he too called her and other media outlets out for focusing on superficial stuff instead of issues that really affect Americans. Politico's top headline this morning, stated Carson admitted to fabricating West Point story, but I read the entire article and Politico did not have a quote from Carson himself admitting to this supposed fabrication. So Politico's headline was very misleading. This only proves what Carson said some time ago, the media is a huge problem and why there is so much divisiveness and confusion in our society. Lawd I wish the days of true journalism still existed. It is so hard to decipher what is fact and not fact, but you have to do your own research to find out.

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Ben Carson ole ying-yang twins whispering ass. What kind of Dr. lies about school?

  • digal704

    So we shouldn't check anything he or any other candidate says, unless of course they're liberal?

  • http://amillennialist.blogspot.com Santiago Matamoros

    What did Carson actually write?

    He said only that he was offered a "scholarship," a term used then.

    You're participating cravenly in an smear campaign against Dr. Carson.

  • Li

    He wasn't watching Obama's campaign was he? The media and the right went after Mr. O with a vengeance. He couldn't even claim affiliation with Rev. Wright and Farrakhan.

  • ReadingUfromTX

    She sure is but the thing about it is that Trump don't want the job...he just wants the attention that comes with running for the job. The political fallout (i.e. get out of dodge free) campaign is about to go into full swing. As you see they are linking him to KKK members. By the time elections come around, Trump will be a non factor.

  • Sainthella

    So the leftist media made him lie?????

  • mzwhang90210

    *whispers* "Wait till you see my...."
    *TEARS*

  • NeverSurprised

    Sandra, I can't believe you are promoting Politico's libelous reporting. I know you are aware that, after Carson and his team called them out, Politico substantially REWROTE the headline and lead paragraphs. The original headline read:

    “Ben Carson admits fabricating West Point scholarship.”

    After Carson and his team called them out for the leftist liars they are, they changed the headline to:

    “Exclusive: Carson claimed West Point ‘scholarship’ but never applied.”

    They also rewrote the lead para, they I don't want to give the leftist swine any more publicity than I already have

    I know that you are keenly aware of the many reasons the left is out to get Carson, not the least of which are his through-the-roof favorability ratings, especially compared with polls that revel the vast majority of Americans see Hillary Clinton as a bald-faced liar. This truncated smear campaign against Carson was Politico's effort to level the playing field. It failed.

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Lol! MzWhang, I hate when they show him trying to talk on tv, ninja be sounding like he has a mouth full of jelly beans.

  • james_from_cambridge

    All Republicans know is hypocrisy and lies. It's in their DNA. They can't help it....they were born that way.

  • maleorderside

    As long as hes not trans I'm sure these people will forgive him. ?

  • T3

    Congratulations!!!! * praise break* ?

  • ArDnAhC45

    Truth. He will drop out.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Congratulations!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He now says the "bully" he stabbed was a family member, and he refuses to name the family member.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Trump was right when he said Carson can't sit with other world leaders.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    And so will Hillary Clinton. In fact, she will be under indictment by 2016.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Hillary is the biggest liar of them all. Oh, wait… I forgot about Obama.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree with you. But, as you can see, my headline is still the same. He lied about being offered a scholarship.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Who u telling!?! Hillary looks at people with a straight face and be lying through dentures.

  • yelpforhelp

    I just know he can't sit with me and I ain't shamed to say, I'm low key scared of his a$$.
    1. He done almost staubed his family member, but by the grace of God the blade broke.
    2. Don't never, ever, never trust somebody who says they "never get angry". (This is not to be confused with looking for a thug.) If you receive this answer that means your a$$ will be in the deep freezer with the rest of "them".
    3. He has stated verbally and through the written word he tried to staub and go after his own mama with hammer. (Lifetime may like all he had was a learning disability.)
    4. Hell naw ain't nobody saying nothing-I'm scared so I know, he know, they know he ain't playing. They done seen the psycho souvenirs-who trying to be next.

  • yelpforhelp

    ...but he chased his mama with a whole hammer. He said that. He should have headed to West Point instead of pointing knives and being one directional with a hammer. Hillary, ain't did (or at least she wasn't fool enough to write it down.

  • yelpforhelp

    I agree and I'm glad you kept the truth up. You can't say it, write it down and say it in a speech and then get mad when someone brings it out.

  • yelpforhelp

    They don't offer scholarships though. So there is that. He put his own ish on the grass and marked the tree, now who is mad that he back tracked and slid in it?

  • yelpforhelp

    If you are stabbing, trying to stab, chasing your mama with a hammer....all of that is important to me I don't care who you are.

  • ReadingUfromTX

    I don't want her either but they are grooming her for the job. After the Benghazi hearing, she is just oozing in confidence. Truth be told, i'm really not to thrilled with this crop of candidates. Maybe enough people will re elect Obama for an unprecedented third term as a write in candidate...lol

  • ReadingUfromTX

    The kind of Dr. who had absolutely no chance of being elected. He was a Republican experiment like Hermain Cain. They wanted the answer to Obama but when they saw the public wasn't buying what they were selling, he has been thrown to the wolves. He will be dropping out soon.

  • Meme81

    This is so stupid-they're taking him down with some of the DUMBEST non-issues. He's obviously not used to being a politician. I think the Republicans and Dems want him, Christie and Rand Paul out of the race the most b/c they tend to want what the people want and not necessarily be about status quo.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Ok

  • http://amillennialist.blogspot.com Santiago Matamoros

    That's the term they used.

    There's no there there. It's merely another mendacious smear from the Left.

  • Rob N. Lebron

    It did. CNN looked up the police report in Baltimore about a Popeye's holdup and nothing came up. As for Obama, They were digging up so much stuff on him so I don't know where everybody is getting that Obama had a squeaky clean campaign without any issues. Even Hilary Clinton said his middle name is "Hussein" so why would you want a Muslim in Office.

  • Sincerity7

    He should have known that "The Man" was going to sift through everything he said to find out if he was lying about stuff. He's an African-American candidate too which means they really want to take every opportunity to make him look bad.
