this forum is for discussions about things like politics
attacking people, or posters defeats the purpose


this got side-tracked by personal attacks because I checked into the Carson speech and gave an opinion that I thought his remarks were factual


outside sources do fact checking - CNN has been doing this the whole Convention, so I thought I would look there to see if I needed to say they call it different than me, some of you had me thinking they might, I wanted to see their analysis and judgement


GOP convention speeches Day 2: CNN vets the claims - CNNPolitics.com

Quote:
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson
Reality Check: Carson on Saul Alinsky, Lucifer and Clinton role model
By Julie Block, CNN
Carson claimed that one of Clinton's "mentors was Saul Alinsky ... someone that she greatly admired and that affected all of her philosophies subsequently." He also said Clinton wrote her college thesis on Alinsky's writings, and that the dedication page for Alinsky's book, entitled, "Rules for Radicals," acknowledges Lucifer.
Alinksy was a community activist, regarded as a radical in the mid-20th century for his teachings about people's empowerment.
Clinton did write her college thesis on Alinsky's life, writings and political views, though much of her thesis was analytical. The conclusion of the thesis reads: "In the first chapter it was pointed out that Alinsky is regarded by many as the proponent of a dangerous socio/political philosophy. As such, he has been feared -- just as Eugene Debs or Walt Whitman or Martin Luther King has been feared, because each embraced the most radical of political faiths -- democracy." This comparison to Debs, Whitman and King, along with Clinton's continued exchange of letters with Alinsky well into her law school years, suggests that Clinton had a deep respect for Alinsky.
Indeed, Alinsky personally acknowledged Lucifer in his book, published in 1971. He wrote, "Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins -- or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom."
Additionally, a Washington Post piece written in 2007 suggests Alinsky had great influence over Clinton's political ideology, causing her to switch from a Republican to a Democrat. The article reads, "Arriving at Wellesley, she became president of the Young Republicans, but she soon drifted left. She said that 1968, the year she met Alinsky in Chicago, was a watershed in her 'personal and political evolution,' marked by the escalation of the Vietnam War and the killings of Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy." The paper also noted, however, that Clinton wrote in her 2003 memoir, "Living History," that Clinton and Alinsky had a "fundamental disagreement" about how to change the system. Because of this, it is a stretch for Carson to say that Alinsky affected "all of her philosophies subsequently."
Verdict: Mostly true.

If Clinton is indeed a raging satanist does that then also make her a Trump supporter?

It's a shame that Carson had to expose Hillary like that. I was looking forward to a spirited campaign, but it's all but over after that truth bomb.

Somebody, and I forget who, once wrote about Lucifer that "the truth is not the same without the lies he made up."

So I suppose that would make Deep a fan of somebody who acknowledges Lucifer.

Oh, the humanity! What would Jesus think?

You seem quick on the draw. That you apparently have no memory of the numerous times I've called out people who are similarly politically aligned with me doesn't surprise me.

But next time you want to hijack a thread and make it about a moderator's perceived failings, don't. Send a private message, but hijacking a public thread to air your grievances is the wrong time and place.

That "somebody" is Melania Trump.

Quote:
One day this past May, Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., reached out to a senior adviser to Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, who left the presidential race just a few weeks before. As a candidate, Kasich declared in March that Trump was “really not prepared to be president of the United States,” and the following month he took the highly unusual step of coordinating with his rival Senator Ted Cruz in an effort to deny Trump the nomination. But according to the Kasich adviser (who spoke only under the condition that he not be named), Donald Jr. wanted to make him an offer nonetheless: Did he have any interest in being the most powerful vice president in history?

When Kasich’s adviser asked how this would be the case, Donald Jr. explained that his father’s vice president would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy.

Then what, the adviser asked, would Trump be in charge of?

“Making America great again” was the casual reply.
Make America Work Again (just not Donald Trump)

Oh, so now they throw the speech writer under the bus but in a way where Trump looks compassionate for rejecting her resignation.
