Trump Spiritual Adviser Says 'He's Like an Elementary Schoolchild'

"Trump standing at the end of the table, he's got Franklin. All of mine are well behind. Ben Carson lime and I put Sam in Rodrigo's dinner by. He said he was scared of the same man. I said, good. I'm gonna put him right in front of your nose, and I did. And Donald Trump stands up and he says James. And Carson said he wouldn't endorse me. You know why we're here? Endorsement, let's talk to you. Tell him talk to you in our games. Do you remember that? I told Ben, I don't talk to anybody 15 minutes. He said, James, how long did we talk two hours? I said, no, sir, we talked an hour and a half. And I might add that so long as you've been quiet, your entire life. Hey, he died laughing and everybody else did. The man started calling him on his cell phone. And then he started asking me to call him him and for 5 years he took every single column. Sometimes two or three a day. You say, well, what were they? Many times they were encouraging. As he told Rick Perry said he just started to preach it. And he said, and then he just prays, Rick. He said, it's amazing. He said, you never want anything. Make sure to think he does. He wants God's will. He called me for marine one to tell me that he was sitting there having that conversation with Trump. Okay, he heard you can always heed. Everything you wanted him to hear. Every single thing you have a prayed for him to hear. Came through these lips, got straight into his face. And with the same force you've heard me talking to you, I spoke it to him. Sir, you act like a little element for school, child, and you shoot yourself in the foot every morning when you get up and open your mouth. The more you keep your mouth closed, the more successful you're gonna be. You say, well, that didn't work very well, did it?

In America, Yu Can Accomplish Anything

"The first topic it was three pillars that I focused on in this speech for a nonprofit organization called take charge. One of the organization out in Minneapolis, but at this event, they asked me to keynote speak and I was trying to get in my mind, what should I talk about? What are the key elements that I think are affecting America and dispensation of time? And it's such a time as this is what the Bible would say. But I had three things that I wanted to talk about. The first one is that all that we see from police reform, all that we see from defund the police. All this stuff is all rooted in a lie. It all came from a line. It all came from a freaking lie. Not rooted in truth, not rooted in any real evidence, not not in any evidence due to research, not any evidence due to people's firsthand knowledge of these incidents. A complete lie. The second one is fatherless homes. I know that people talk about it a lot, but you just wait until I give you some of the stats that I had researched. And you will understand why a lot of people are speaking about fatherless homes and telling you time and time and time again that it is an incredible issue in our country that we're facing today that if we can fix if we can make right, we will see a tremendous change in America. We see a tremendous change in inner city communities. And the last pillar of concept was that you can be whatever you want to be in the United States of America. If you work hard, if you put God first and you know, if you have enough faith to believe, you can accomplish anything. Your color is not an obstruction. You know, your background is not necessarily an inevitable obstruction. If you put in the work and you believe in yourself, you put God first and everything that you do, you can accomplish great things, no matter where you start from. IE, Ben Carson and I can name a whole bunch of more people that have had that experience.

"See you into your eyes right now. And stay right here 'cause these are the good old. Make like a miss folks, welcome back, final segment with our friend doctor Ben Carson. Doctor Carson, what do you see as the future of this nation from where we stand right now? What gives you hope? Well, I'll tell you, I'm a big believer in the Bible. And in faith and what it can do and if God was willing to save something and gamora for the sake of ten people, I think he may save us. There's a lot of people in this country who are still very decent people. Who do care, who love their fellow man, and they love God. And I believe what's going on right now, we all look at it, and we say, this is just to horrendous. But it's always darkest before the dawn. And a lot of times you need this to wake you up. I think we were sort of like the frog and the saucepan. And now all of a sudden, somebody's taking a fish and whacking us in the face with it. I think the left has moved a little bit too rapidly in their eagerness to fundamentally change this. And I think people are waking up. I really do believe that we're going to see some changes. Of course, it will require some diligence in terms of our voting system, making sure that it can not be manipulated. And what I find interesting is you take a leftist nation like France. France ended, you know, mail in ballots. In 1975, why did they do it? They said there was just way too much corruption that too many ways to corrupt the vote. Now, if they learn that, why can't we learn that? If we can put a man on the moon and we can put rovers on Mars, certainly we can come up with a system that is transparent that will gain the faith and trust of all the people. Well, I mean, I think it's obvious that if you're the party of corruption and I am going to say, yes, the Democrats have been the party of corruption. It's not just Democrats, but they have, they've made a game of it. They've gotten very good at it. And the last thing they want is transparency because my goodness, they might lose power, of course, they would lose power, but you're right. People are waking up. It needed to get this bad for some people to wake up. But as I said earlier, I lay the blame squarely at the foot of the church at the white evangelical church for opening their doors to the Marxist nonsense of critical race theory of letting their white guilt manipulate them into displaying black squares and BLM flags and stuff. It is just astonishing to me that they would participate in promoting this kind of evil and falsehood to their own people and in a sense telling Christians that don't get political unless it's that kind of politics in which case we'll say it's the gospel. But I mean, I really do think that some people in the church or by God's grace are waking up. But many have been asleep. Well, two wrongs don't make a right. So, you know, creating guilt on behalf of white people for something that their ancestors did. It doesn't do anything. And what that will eventually do is boomerang back around and just continue the cycle. So why would you do that? Why not just say, let's learn from the past and let's try to do things in a way that is fair to everybody right now. Well, obviously, I agree with that. Well, I'm just so glad for your time and for your participation in this film, Uncle Tom to folks. It's just important that we learn the truth about history about the way these trends have worked. So we can reverse them Uncle Tom too. I know you can go to Salem now dot.

"And let's talk a little bit about the idea of the family, the breakdown of the family in America, and the breakdown of black families in America. That's part of this secular Marxist narrative that somehow families are, you know, it's some kind of patriarchal institution. Whatever narrative that was out there didn't used to be the narrative in black America. No question about it. And it was the strong family structure and the faith that got black families through slavery and Jim Crow and segregation and all the horrible things that occurred subsequently. But what has happened as the family structure has been destroyed by the welfare programs. And as people have moved away from their faith. You look how people are now engaged in horrific crimes in which they clearly don't care about anybody else. Except themselves. And that's why they're able to go out and that's why you see all the carnage that you see in Chicago every weekend. And other places across the country and you see the carjackings and the robberies and all these things because they are self centered. They don't care about anybody else. And that's what happens when you take faith out of the equation. And when you take family out of the equation, you don't pass on those values and you become a victim of your environment and that environment frequently is not very nurturing. Well, it's interesting that we have two prominent black mayors one in New York here, Eric Adams, and Lori Lightfoot in Chicago, overseeing a nightmare, neither of them is married, is a family person. It's just kind of interesting in a way that these people in their own lives, they send signals. We all send signals by how we behave. Oprah never got married. We always knew who she was involved with, but it's interesting to me how that narrative has changed across the country, but also in black America, and the messages that get sent out as a result of that, to young people. Also, if you look at a lot of the writings of the Marxist and you look at some of the linen writings, they talk about how strong America is and how it can't be brought down. Unless we find a way to attack their families and their faith. And they've been very successful at doing it. And it's having the desired effect. That's why khrushchev's 60 plus years ago said the Eisenhower, your grandchildren's children will live under communism, and we won't have to fire a shot. What was he talking about? All they had to do is indoctrinate the kids, gain control over educational system, gain control of the media so they could spoon feed the people only what they want them to hear. Replace faith in God with faith in government and raise the national debt to astronomical levels so you could justify massive taxation redistribution of wealth and complete dependence on the government. It seems to me like you're doing a pretty good job of doing all those things. We've got to recognize it and we've got to fight back. Well, when you say we've got to fight back, I could not agree more, I have a new book out called letter to the American church where I lay the blame at the foot of the American church for not fighting back saying well, we can get involved in politics. If you care about people, folks, you need to get involved in whatever you need to get involved in to speak the truth, we'll be right back talking to doctor Ben Carson..

"Promo code Eric at my pillow dot com. Folks, welcome back. I am speaking with doctor Ben Carson about a film in which he appears new film called Uncle Tom two, produced by our friend Larry elder, you can see it Salem now see it at Salem now dot com, Uncle Tom two. Doctor Carson, I just marvel at the idea that there are many people like you blacks in America who lived through this who saw this. I had the privilege of speaking with justice clarence Thomas at some point earlier this year and it's just an amazing thing to hear how he bought in to the angry black man ideology until he woke up to the truth and we just see the astonishing accomplishments that he has made just a hero and yet he like you is mostly vilified in the mainstream media and by the Democratic Party as somehow getting it wrong. I mean, it's just fascinating to me that you could be one of the greatest surgeons in the world. You could be in the cabinet of the president of the United States. You could be a Supreme Court Justice. It's just amazing that the two of you, for example, who have been such a so dramatically successful, would be vilified. What do you think is behind that? Who is behind that? Well, you know, I grew up in Detroit, a very liberal place. And Boston a very liberal place. Went to New Haven, a very little place, and then Ann Arbor, very liberal place, and in Baltimore, very little place. So I was a very liberal individual. Until I did something that the liberal has never supposed to do. I listened to a conservative, I listened to Ronald Reagan. And I said, this guy sounds just like my mother. He's saying exactly the same stuff the same philosophy. And I started really examining my belief system. I was noticing that so many of the patients that I was seeing at each Baltimore. Were dependent on the government. They were perfectly able bodied people. I said, this is wrong. And there is a system that is absolutely deleterious to the aspirations of these people. And that's really when I started making a significant change. Once the media for whom I was a darling discovered that I had made that change and now I was a conservative has evil. He's an evil person. He's a terrible, terrible person. Because they don't want the narrative of self reliance out there. They want people to think that they're a victim, and that they, in fact, are their savior. And that they can't make it without them. It's just amazing to me and again, it's why I'm shamelessly plugging Uncle Tom too, because I think a lot of people just don't have the facts. I mean, even as they hear us talking about these talking points, these themes, they don't know the specifics of how many blacks in America did incredible things. And you never hear their stories. In the early part of the 20th century, whoever we're talking about, just story after story of success, success..

"Back. I have the joy of speaking to doctor Ben Carson. We're talking about the film, Uncle Tom two. I think most of you can guess it's the sequel to Uncle Tom. One, both produced by our friend Larry elder and just featuring a smorgasbord of Swedish spokespeople. No, a smorgasbord of black spokespeople telling the truth about the black American experience at the head of the pack, our friend doctor Carson, doctor Carson, you were just sharing some of the history. This is mostly unknown in America, which is why I'm so aggressive in pushing my audience to see Uncle Tom two. It is really astonishing that in our lifetimes, what is in this film has been just pushed to the side, ignored, and this is the actual history, and it is precisely the opposite of the victim's story narrative that we've heard over and over and over again. Including from the mainstream media constantly. Well, the mainstream media is a major culprit in all of this. Take, for example, the George Floyd situation. It was played incessantly 24/7. You would have thought that black men were being killed by police every day that it was a common phenomenon. We have some good friends in Australia. We talked to them. They said, what's happening over there they're killing all the black men. But the fact of the matter is this great conservative organization, The Washington Post, even says the number of unarmed black men killed by policemen in a year is less than two dozen significantly less than 2000. And there was another case just like the George flight case around that time. Knee on the neck, face on the ground. I'm going to die. Got almost no attention. He did die, by the way. Because he was white. So it didn't fit the narrative. So toss that one out. We don't really care about that. But this is how the media manipulates and tries to make it seem like black people are these horrible victims. Now this is not to say that we've reached nirvana in terms of racial relationships, but we have made enormous progress. And we need to build on the progress we've made, not build on slavery and some of the mistakes that were made in our society. What is in this film for folks who are interested in seeing it. I want to tell people you go to Salem now dot com where you can find it and many other great things. But Uncle Tom two roughly speaking for those who are not aware of the film, what is in it. Besides you talking about some of the things we're talking about right here. Well, we talk about some of the things that you and I have just been talking about. How the media and many on the left try to manipulate people. And to believing that the victims and when you believe you're a victim, guess what? You are a victim. And rather than talking about the enormous avenues that exist for people to achieve. And one of the things also that's talked about is how certain policies are helpful to the minority community. For instance, controlling our border. We control our border, you have less people coming in who are taking many jobs that people in the minority community might take and use as stepping stones to move higher. Those are very important issues in our country..

Dr. Ben Carson Sets the Record Straight on Black History in America

"Most blacks were in the Republican Party during reconstruction and after that. And the real change occurred with FDR. And the programs. And he did make some significant changes because we had a very racist society before that. And I think that's when things really started changing. Particularly after World War II and people started saying, you know, these black soldiers helped us to maintain our freedom. You had the crack air force group, the red tails, and I think people began to change their opinion and FDR helped to speed that along. But, you know, the blacks really were looking at who was benefiting them. And, you know, Hoover's policies were not beneficial to the blacks by any stretch of the imagination. He basically just didn't care. And because Roosevelt showed that caring aspect, I think that's when the change began. And then during the civil rights movement, it was actually the Republican Party that pushed for voting rights and that pushed the civil rights bill. And it was the Democrats who resistant to that. And then the Democrat subsequently said, well, the Republicans in the Democrats switched. And they became the opposite of who they were. And the Democrats became the Republicans. Well, there was only one that was strong fairman. So, you know, through that argument on the window, that's not true. But what the Democratic Party then learned to do is to present themselves as the savior for black people.

"Ben Carson, welcome to the program. I always a pleasure to be with you. I love talking to you about anything, but I have you on today specifically to talk about the new film. I've told my audience about it a bunch of times, Uncle Tom, to tell us what you can about this film because from my point of view, we have to re-educate America on American history and a big part of that, of course, is black history. And the level of either ignorance or disinformation that many of us have on the story of black America after the Civil War, it's almost unbelievable. So I want to congratulate Larry elder and you and everyone who's participated in this. But tell us about the film. Well, I was glad to participate in the film that Larry did. And it helps black people to see that you don't have to support Biden to be black. Like you said. Now you're putting your phrasing at negatively. You don't have to support Biden to be black. How about you can't support Biden if you're pro black? I mean, it's almost funny to me how crazy we are that we kind of act like we have to, well, I mean, you're saying it. I'm interrupting, but it's amazing how bad it is. It's been going on for decades and decades, roughly since Lyndon Johnson. Well, you know, so many people are corralled. By political correctness, by wokeness, by wanting to fit in. You know, I noticed this dramatically when I was in high school and inner city high school in Detroit. And everybody had talk a certain way you wear certain clothes. You do certain things. Or they call you names. And they ostracize you.

Charlie, thanks for having me on. It's great to be able to spend some time with you today. Likewise, tell us why you're running and tell us what is your message against the snake Peter Meyer. Peter Meyer betrayed everyone in our district. Bayes after being in Congress find literally days in there. His first vote he takes is to impeach Trump. People put in their sweat and their tears and their money to Peter Myers campaign helping him win just as you guys did, Charlie, and he was saying all the right things. People thought he was a real deal. When he got in there, just a few days after he really backstabbed everyone. So he is not providing leadership. He is not representing the people that voted for him. And so I felt that I needed to do it. I wasn't planning to. After serving our time in the Trump administration, I was maybe going to work for a think tank and be out of the spotlight for a while, but some of our friends from our former White House said, dude, Peter Meyer voted in Peter Trump. You should go back home and run against them. So I decided to pray about it, think about it, get my ducks in a row. It's jumped in head first. It got president Trump's endorsement. Got doctor Ben Carson's endorsement who I worked under in the Trump administration and said, yeah, we really need to do this. We really need to provide leadership for the good people here in west Michigan. There's not getting it right now under Peter

How Minimum Wage Laws Hurt People

"Ago I was having lunch or dinner with the brilliant Thomas soul. The man that David Mamet has called America's greatest contemporary philosopher. Still with us in his mid 90s, every day he's with us as a blessing. And I was talking to him, you might remember about the minimum wage. And it's probably been one of the most studied aspect of all of all of economics and the overwhelming consensus is that minimum wage laws hurt people. They hurt people who are unskilled because unskilled people can not ask for wages that are consistent with their level of expertise. If the law says that employer must pay somebody higher than what the employer perceives to be his or her level of expertise or level of productivity. Particularly hurts people that have less education and it hurts another way to you don't get that first job. It isn't so much the first job pays you a lot of money, teach you discipline, how to show up on time, how to deal with authority, how to deal with other people, if it's a job that requires you to interact with the public how to deal with public. So it hurts on all sorts of levels. And it's been studied over and over and over again, the joint committee on economics, which is a bipartisan panel of House Republicans and democratic Republicans years ago put out a series of studies looking at research going back over almost 50 years. Overwhelmingly showing the damage that these laws do. And as you know, the late great Milton Freeman, and Nobel laureate. Once said that the minimum wage quote is perhaps the most anti Negro, the term used in those days, that's how long he'd been talking about how bad this is. Anti Negro law on the statute books world. So I said to Tom, why is it you guys haven't one, this argument? Even Republicans. I heard that doctor Ben Carson wanted this. Rick santorum wanted an increase in the minerals. Did even Republicans are buying this nonsense. And he said, Larry, that's because most people haven't heard the argument.

"No brain surgeon, but you know what I'm saying? He's one smart guy. You know that he separated twins. That was my twin brother in high eye. Yeah. But you guys were you guys were getting into it, arguing about climate change or something, and he separated you with a level of diplomatic finesse that only Ben Carson could pull that off. He separated a lot of twins, some unintentionally. Well anyway, the thing is that we've got to get serious folks, enough goofing around about Ben Carson. Let's get back to, I don't know, I guess now that Biden has been among the royals. He is himself styling himself his incontinent highness. And so that's really the proper title. His incontinent highness Joe Biden, we know that a lot of bad things happened when he was around the Pope. Something really, really unpleasant happened. And all I'll say is, oh my goodness, it was ugly. It went a step further than the incident, the recent incident with Camilla Parker Bowles with Camilla, it was only audible and it was gaseous. Let's put it that way. I think it approached a solid state or solid or liquid state when he was in the presence of the Pope. So he decided to pull it back to another state of matter, the gaseous when he was with Camilla Parker Bowles because as we know she's not, she's not standing in the shoes of the fishermen, saying that's right. And the Pope could forgive him. Yeah. At the moment. Yes. That's right. Well, is that a Marxist virtue? Well, all right. Well, listen, we should say this to our audience since we're being really silly to the point of losing our audience. Let's get serious for a second. If you want to, we'd like you to go to my pillow dot com or Frank speech dot com. There are some giganto sales now. You have to use the code Eric. But they're huge huge sales because Mike lindell.

It seems that the medical establishment is at least confused if not putting out bad information. What do you think people can do? Well, well there are a lot of physician groups, a medical groups who have sort of been silenced or people trying to cancel them because they are talking about the alternative. They're alternatives are very effective. Ivermectin, incredibly effective. As a prophylactic or when you first get the disease. When you get to disease not as a prophylactic hijacked chloroquine works very well as a prophylactic. In fact, if you go to western Africa, almost all the countries along there, you have to take a hydroxychloroquine or an equivalent anti malarial. And their incidents of COVID is much, much lower than ours. And that's not a coincidence. But it's hard to get hydrochloroquine. Yeah, because of politics. You know, hydrochloric politics is killing people is what you're telling me. Been used for 60 or 70 years. And it's safe. And we know that. And I think there's really no reason that we should have had hundreds of thousands of people dying.

Therefore, you have to sort of say those things don't work. I think it's criminal quite

"Our constitution was designed for a moral and religious people. And as inadequate for the governance of any other. When you have people who really don't care about what anybody else thinks, it's not designed for that kind of individual or that kind of government. And it's going to be the people who stop it. It's not going to be the government. It stops it. Because what the governments do, they grow the expand they infiltrate and they dominate. Just like lions, lines aren't bad animals because they kill gazelles and eat them. That's what buying to do. And that's what governments do. And that's why our founders work so hard on our constitution to give the people a tool to control the government. But there must be courageous and knowledgeable enough to use it. What are some of the things that folks can do? I get that question all the time. And now I have Ben Carson as my guest. Doctor Carson, what can some folks do out there? And what are some of the things that you're working on? Well, I think most important things are not to be silent. Not to stand in the corner with your head down and hope that somebody doesn't call you a nasty name or try to cancel you. Because you can't be the land of the free, if you're not also the home of the brave. So we had a wonderful example last week in Virginia. As people actually stood up, Democrats, Republicans, independents, they all stood up and said, you know, we're in charge. You're not in charge, government. You work for us. We don't work for you. This is what people have to begin to do. If they don't do it, the government will take complete control of all of our lives. Well, it's interesting because it seems to me that things have gotten so extremely bad that many people who would ordinarily keep sleeping are waking up. So that is the good news that there are people that just never dreamt that we could have gas prices soaring grocery prices soaring, literally millions of people. Coming across our unnecessarily our borders. Well, for sure, the supply chain problems, weakness around the world, losing many, many billions, dollars of medical, sorry, a military equipment to our enemies, just levels of horror that I think almost nobody could have believed would happen this quickly. And you know, it wouldn't have had to happen. And it doesn't have to happen if people don't adopt a my way or the highway type of attitude. You know, when it comes to energy, for instance, you know, we had the cleanest air in the clinic's water since it was measurable during the last administration. And still, we were able to become energy independent and be a net exporter of energy and have that whole aspect of our lives under our own control. And then, you know, comment, we destroy all of that, which obviously is going to have a tremendous impact on people because of the prices of energy that are going up. What would intelligent people do? Intelligent people would say, we've got all this. We've got energy independence. And we also want green renewable energy. There's absolutely no reason that we can't keep what we have and work on what we want and be able to do a substitution as time allows. And as technology allows. That's where the smart person with the well, is it so much that they're not smart as it is that they are driven by ideology. In other words, if we were dealing with logic that would be one thing, but it seems to me that today's left and this administration of sorts, whatever it is, this conglomeration of people claiming to be the administration, that they're driven by an ideology that it doesn't make intellectual sense. There's something else going on. We're going to a break. We're going to come back with doctor Ben Carson folks, do not go away. Hey, folks Eric taxes here. Joe Biden and the Democrats have laid out the most socialist agenda our country has ever seen. Instead of following president Trump's blueprint that had the economy booming, the Dems are going to raise taxes, increase regulations and skyrocket and.

"Gotta tell you, I try as often as possible to get rocket scientists and brain surgeons on the program. Not too many rocket scientists recently, but today we do have a brain surgeon, doctor Ben Carson, welcome to the program. Thank you, always good to be with you. We can't do like a fun cooking segment with you where like we do a little brain surgery and you show us the latest techniques. So we're gonna have to talk about more we're going to talk about less serious things than brain surgery. I want to talk to you about first of all, you've got a number of projects going on that I'm excited about. You've got the American cornerstone institute. But literally yesterday, you talked a little bit, I think it was yesterday about the vaccine and the risks from some of these vaccines that were theoretically not allowed to talk about, which I find really outrageous. And I said, since we're having you on the program, maybe you could talk a little bit about your thoughts on what these vaccines can do in our blood to our hearts. I'm just hearing all kinds of disturbing reports. Well, first of all, recognize that getting a vaccine as quickly as we got it was quite a miraculous thing. It required a lot of people working together and it probably saved a lot of lives. Having said that, there's a lot of talk about whether or not we should be following the science. And we absolutely should be looking at benefits versus risk and recognizing that in America, we have the best medical care system that exists anywhere in the world. And we have highly trained very skilled physicians and practitioners. And why in that case does it make any sense at all for the government to be mandating anything that has to do with health? What we should be doing is encouraging people to go to their healthcare provider who knows what their individual situation is. One size fits all does not work in medicine. I can tell you from working for decades and medicine. It just doesn't work. And you have to particularly when you're dealing with children. Now children have a zero point zero two 5% chance of mortality with COVID. That's the same as with seasonal flu. And yet we don't go through all these things with seasonal flu. So why should we going through them for this, particularly given effect that we don't know what the long term complications of this vaccine? This is a new type of technology. We have no idea what's going to be going on 5, ten, 15, 20 years from now. Doesn't matter as much for the older people. Because they're probably not going to pay around anyway. But it matters a lot. Well, this is one of these things that I just I know we're living in strange times when you have much of the medical establishment. And the government, pushing something about which they still know very little. That seems to me at least irresponsible if not potentially criminal. What would happen if this turns out to be something like thalidomide, everybody every local doctor is pushing it and then they find out uh oh, it's doing something really horrible. We didn't know we didn't know. Let's pull it. We still don't know what is going to happen a few years down the line. I'm hearing about many women pregnant women, miscarrying. I'm hearing some doctors are talking about strange cancers showing up in populations where they weren't showing up and that something is going on with the immune system that this these vaccines are doing something to our immune systems, which is bad. I've just heard so much about this and nobody seems to be taking it seriously or even worse telling us to shut up, not even discuss it. This is the exact reason that a normal science. This is not normal science by any stretch of the imagination. We do benefit risk analysis. And obviously that is different for each person. But here we're not doing that. We're just saying, everybody needs to do this. And we're completely neglecting natural immunity, which is extremely important. We've recognized it for decades and decades before now. Another one even want to talk about it. Or acknowledge it at all. What do you reckon is behind that? I mean, this is a big thing. What can be behind something like that? It's really it's at least disturbing that we are dealing with something like this and that you who have practiced medicine for so many decades at such a high level, you're saying this, but it's as if no one is saying it. Well, I can't think of any scientific valid reason for doing it. You know, there could be political reasons or other things going on, but I can't think of any scientific reason why you would ignore the evidence and the facts and just push a one size. It's all ideology. It makes no sense whatsoever. Well, we also know that many people have objections to these vaccines because all three of them in one way or the other involved aborted children. There's no getting around that, and so if somebody has an objection to that, how is it that the government can wipe away religious liberty and say, you've got to get this? If you want to keep your job, you've got to get this. I mean, this seems to be, you know, it's more than a medical crisis. Yeah, you're exactly right. And for the government to mandate a way your religious liberty is a real issue. And even the federal court has recognized that. And put a stay on the mandate, and what is the executive branch you do? They say. We don't care what they say. Who going to hit with it anyway? That's the reason John Adams said.

Anyway, so that's tomorrow Norman stone, you should go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com. But Alban before we go to Ben Carson, the brain surgeon, I want to say that I did an interview with the Babylon bee. You listen to it. I didn't have the guts to listen to it. It was terrific, really. It was very funny, very funny. But it was very in depth. I mean, I got into all kinds of stuff. They basically said to me, okay, Eric, we got to talk about the elephant in the room. You went from being a Christian intellectual to like a violent Trump supporter. They basically said that. Yes. And I had to sit there and take it as though it were true. You know, and but the point is that I love those guys. I love the Babylon B very much so but so you think that it was funny because they didn't seem to be as funny as you'd expect them to be writing for the Babylon bee. And they thought I would be funnier, but the point is we talked about really serious stuff. That's right. But I thought you were funny because again you didn't really try to be. You just got to answer their questions and they were like, it was very, people have to go and watch it at the Babylon B website. You'll see it right there. It's featured. Actually, I mean, I talk about some very serious stuff I talk about. I blocked Phil visser on Twitter. Now he's a friend. I really talk about you know we're living in such divided times. And if you disagree with me politically, I still love you and want to be your friend. I don't care if you disagree with me. We don't even have to talk about these things. Sometimes it's preferable not to talk about them. But there are some people who, you know, even though I want to be their friends that they can only talk about why they think I'm lying or something flattering usually like that. But I just want to say that when we come back, we're talking to Ben Carson and at the end of the hour we're going to circle back to the incontinence, bru ha ha. On the other side of the pond, oh my goodness, folks, don't go away. You're a little touch. Angie baby. Lovers. And they were folks. I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Taubman have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about $1 a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or the three week quick start.

And by the way, to the people listening on radio right now, shame on you. What is your problem? Yeah. Listen, maybe we're joking, but we do joke around, but I want to say this. I've been traveling everywhere. Yes. No, actually, I just broke my own rule. I want to say, in a moment, we'll be speaking with Ben Carson, brain surgeon. Wow. Yes. Ben Carson, brain surgeon. Can you think you'll look at this rash on my arm? Oh, sure. Sure. He has unguents and poultices, mustard plasters. He's got the range of things in his bag, and he'll hook us up. It's like Felix the cat hook us up. Yes. I know some people on the staff have horrible acne on their backs, and he knows how to deal with that. And anyway, he's a big deal. It's Ben Carson. He's going to be on this program. Any second. But before we go to Ben Carson, we have to talk about several other things. First of all, first of all, as I was saying earlier, I've been traveling. So I don't think I've ever traveled quite this much. So I'm almost literally dizzy and I yesterday I keep having to fly through Dallas. And it's just confusing, but I was in Wichita, Kansas. Before Wichita, Kansas, I was in Houston, I spoke at a church in Houston, grace, woodlands. This is one of those heroic churches. I want to tell you folks, if you get near The Woodlands, go to grace woodlands. The pastor is Steve riggle. I'm telling you, just one of those places where you want to know they exist. I was in Wichita, Kansas, and the folks in Wichita. There's organization there called culture shield network. Absolute heroes. I spoke a couple of nights ago. There had to be about 800 people there. Many of them listening to my speech. Wow. But we have to get to the most important thing. The current events. The current goodness. Actually, let me say this too. In our two we're not gonna Paul gottfried, he's written a book about anti fascism or fascism. Actually his two books once fascism and one is antifa. And they cancel each other out. So we're not. All right, and then tomorrow, we speak to my dear friend Norman stone. About his new film. Wow. You know about this? Oh, yeah. It's about C. S. Lewis. Great. And it is called if you actually, if you go to the website it's called the most reluctant convert. If you go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com, folks, C. S. Lewis, I'm giving you a hot tip, write this down. I don't care if you have to pull over. You do what you need to do. C. S. Lewis, movie, dot com, watch that shoulder there. C. S. Lewis movie dot com. And we're also having Brian kilmeade on from Fox News. We still talk to people from Fox News. Isn't that great? Okay, okay, but we have to talk about my Babylon bee interview. Yeah. But before that Alban, wow, we have talked about the hottest news of the day. The hottest news of the day is we have an incontinent leader of the free world. Not incompetent. Oh, yes, of course. He is incompetent and forgive me for even suggesting you may not be. But I don't want to insult your intelligence. But the fact is incontinence also has entered the picture. And the Twenty-fifth Amendment enables the government to invoke the Twenty-fifth Amendment to remove a president on the grounds of incontinence. If you listen to the program yesterday the day before, we covered this when he was at the G 6 summit, which I think Alban you said was the G 6 summit turned into the GI summit. Right. Well, because he has some pronounced GI issues. I think the gas line either ruptured or he threatened to cancel the gas line and his body rebelled and the bottom line is with in the presence of Camilla Parker Bowles who is styled the duchess of Cornwall. She looks a bit like a death's head, but she is the duchess. Listen, folks, you can laugh all you want. She's the duchess of Cornwall, and she stole Charles away from Diana, write that down. Well, well, Biden went from corn pop to Cornwall, it looked like. Yes. And that's what he's trying to, you know, he's trying to get in with the royals, but the bottom line is royal flush evidently something happens, something untoward, and that's putting it mildly a blast from the past, I guess you could say from the night before when he ate at Simpsons on the strand, and he had a little too much of the beef and you know, they have very rich foods there. They do. And anyway, at the G 6 summit, he, how do we put it? I just think there was a natural gas rupture or leak or some kind. And Camilla Parker Bowles grimmest horribly, so much so that she because she was in close proximity to the blast. Yeah. And if only feet away from the epicenter and she grimaced so, so dramatically, so violently that she's had to have what's it called facio maxillary surgery to restore her to her previous facial self. But anyway, I say this just because we want to cover the important issues on the program. We sometimes we joke around. But this was an international incident. I do wonder if he tried to like move furniture or something and try to make the sound like it, so we could say, oh, that was the furniture. I was moving the furniture. That wasn't that. Well, I got to tell you something. He moved he moved more than furniture. This guy. This is an international incident. And a lot of people believe that it was Biden's way, really of sending a message on behalf of Diana, the Prince of Wales, just to say, you know what? I'm not okay with what you did there. But he couldn't say it verbally. So he had to express it in another way. And I respect that. Yeah. It's like blinking SOS when you've been held by. Yeah, that's what I said the other day. It's kind of a just a way of getting out what otherwise would be you'd be unable to get it out, so to speak. And that's all the news for today folks. We're going to talk about we're going to talk about less serious things now. So we've got Paul, we've got Ben Carson coming up in our two we've got Paul gottfried tomorrow. We're talking to my friend Norman stone, the film director. Now he did the shadowlands for the BBC. That was great. Starring Joss ackland, Claire Bloom. Yes.

Welcome back to neutral. I'm dr ben carson filling in for the vacationing newt gingrich. We thought we tried something fun today. We sent requests for questions to you the listener questions. You'd like me to answer and we've got some great ones now to help me. I'd like to introduce you to debbie. Meyers the president of gingrich. Three sixty and the executive producer of mid swirl who probably would like me on vacation to but she dedicated and wants to participate in this program. Hi debbie hi. How are you. Thank you so much for filling in. You're doing a great job thank you. We got a lot of wonderful questions. A lot of people love you dr carson. So it's hard to narrow these down but hopefully will come back and do more. And i'll save some of these great questions for you later. But let's kick it off with our first question from mike and mike ass dr carson. What do you think caused the political. Divide in the united states and more importantly how can we reverse it from severe good question and obviously something that concerns many of us. You know there was a time in not too distant past quite frankly when our political atmosphere was occupied by democrats and republicans democrats or republicans. Who had the same end goal. That just had different philosophies about how to achieve it now. It's different now. They don't have the same goals now. We have people who love what america stands for liberty and justice for all one nation under god and we have another group of people who want to fundamentally change america who actually dislike what america represents aunt is gonna obviously be more difficult now to get on the same page with people who don't like the page snap on and wanna turn it however because we had those big We do have the ability to sit down. We do have the ability to discuss things. We do have ability to work things out. We shouldn't be trying to eliminate each other. Which should be trying to work with each other. We can do that. It's gonna require voices of reason. No question about that but it's also going to require at platform whereby the people who truly love and believe in america can get their voices heard when we have organizations like facebook and twitter and some of the other social media platforms trying to shut down the speech. The people who don't agree with the leftist agenda it makes very very difficult however the society is the mother of invention and those new transplant platforms are being created and they will be here very soon and i think that's going to help to level the playing field. This next question is from glenn from california and he says it seems like homelessness around the country keeps growing. Why do you think that is and what our ideas to solve. One of the grand challenges of our time again very appropriate question. Obviously that was something. We dealt with a lot. When i was at hud on. Obviously it's been something we've been working on in this country for for decades and it is getting worse. Part of the problem is if you go out there and you see. The homeless people like visited the los angeles a number of times skid row in some of the other areas a lot of those homeless people are suffering significantly from drug addiction from mental illness. It's very problematic. And they have something. Some of these may with call the housing first program where you just say. Let's get people off the street. Not requirements nothing. Just get him off the street. 'cause they're safer off the street and it costs less to take care of them off the street..

"ben carson" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"Zero four and welcome back i'm talking to dr ben carson secretary ben carson in any case here he is dr carson. I've gotta ask you the cancel culture. We have and i feel like it's part of god's calling on my life to say as publicly and loudly as i can to most americans. You're not crazy when you think that the world has gone crazy everybody needs to be encouraged. Like yes there is lunacy in them there hills. it's just pure madness. Most americans no but they're too busy to deal with to talk about it. And i just want to be one of those voices that says folks. We all know that it's gone crazy. Don't worry most of us know and we're doing what we can behind the scenes. What do you make of it dr carson. Because it is really rome nothing less than madness. It's it's antithetical to some of the founding principles of our country You know when. I go back to the cornerstone principles of liberty. That means that people came to this country because they wanted to be free to be free to express themselves verbally and in every other way Without government interfering with everything they were doing now. Some people say we still have freedom of speech here but do you really just. Because the government is imposing restriction if the government is in compliance with big tech and the media it is absolutely the same effect. Okay hang on. I've got interrupt you because you just made a very important point very very important point if the government is conspiring agreeing with those who are silencing then then in fact the government is using its power which is given to it by we the people to work against the people. So how do you make the case that the government is doing that in other words if they say oh it's not us it's private companies. How how do you make the case that the government and the current fake administration is in fact somehow using its power wrongly. Well the government has the responsibility of guaranteeing for its people life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They are not allowing us to live in freedom. So they're reneging on the responsibility to promote liberty when they allow any other to destroy any of those principles and that needs to be made clear to all the people at twenty things were doing also remember with cancel culture. It is antithetical to prince. People's faith are judeo-christian values. Tell us to love your neighbor not to cancel your neighbor if you disagree with them completely antithetical to both liberty and to say which are two guiding principles the principle of community. Which is that a working together. I just had an hour long conversation. that will be televised with benjamin crump. Obviously we come from two extraordinarily different Vantage points but we want the same things and being respectful listening to each other and and talking about what are the facts. It is possible to make progress. That's what community is all about in america. We have much more that we agree about than what we disagree about. But we allow the media and others to take those things we disagree about. Put them on the tour fraught and make that seemed like the most important issue and actually see the american people into thinking that we are each other's enemies we are not each other's enemies but if we continue to believe that we will destroy our nation a. House divided against itself cannot stand. Jesus said it. Abraham lincoln said it. It's absolutely true. And the last cornerstone principal life. We as we've gotten further away from respect of life from the wound to the tune. We've become less respectful of each other. And has that has coarsened our behavior our dialogue and it is going to obviously wreak havoc if we don't get a handle on it and stop allowing people to manipulate us. What do you make of the fact that our government including the republicans who had power for some time until recently did not do more to stand against big tech. I think there are a lot of people that they're they're effectively pinheads because all they focus on is the free market quote unquote as if there is such a thing divorced from virtue and context and they just thought well let it ride. We can't do anything about about private companies which is preposterous. Because we can have. We can do trust busting. It's been done it needs doing and then there are other things. I mean if a company for example is involved with china who is our enemy who is working against human rights and civil rights with all the power that they have the idea that we cannot take a stand against them or require our own companies or companies that are making billions from the american market to have certain benchmarks Dealing with with countries. Like that i mean why do you think the republicans didn't do more. I guess this is my way of saying that. I think that a lot of people are very disgusted with the republican party. Because many in the publican party did not put america. I think they Falsely assume that they had more time than they did Given the fact that the economy was doing so incredibly well and that so many other parameters were functioning a very good way. They just assume that they would have more time. And that was a false assumption. They will eventually have power again. I pretty much feel that the guarantee because people are waking up pretty quick right right. I well for me jack carson. We're going to go to break when we come back. I'll let you complete that sentence.

"To dr ben carson secretary ben carson ben dr car i dunno ben carson. Love talking to you. Ben is good. You only say since the universe jesus created the universe and he doesn't mind if we call him. Jesus that's amazing. That's true. But i think he's trying to make titular theological point. I i wanna talk to you about first of all how you got involved in a presidential administration and what you did there and then i want to talk about where we are now but i think a lot of people can i can say you can blame you or thank you for a humanizing. Donald trump back when a lot of people didn't know what to make of him or or only thought of him as brash. Or something like that. You very kindly. And you're typically gentle kind way reached out to him and put your support behind him so let me just ask you. What did you see him. That a lot of people still don't see. I saw a man who deeply loved america. I had seen his interview with oprah winfrey about twenty five years prior to that. She asked him if he would ever run for president and he said no. I would ever do that. Unless i thought the country was going off the cliff and there was a need to save it and as i got to know him during the campaign. I realized that he was sincere about that. He had a good life and he really didn't need to do this. Wouldn't enhanced his reputation or would destroy. Its it wouldn't make them wealthier make making poor so there was really no good reason except that he truly love our country and thought it was going off the cliff. I felt the same way and chile sophocles very much in the same boat very different personalities. However you think you. I guess i'm just curious. What was your experience becoming secretary of hud right. I never think about hot housing and urban development. What did you think needed to be done. And do you feel. You're able to get it done or get something done. Because i i think one thing we all learned in the last four years is about the existence of the bureaucratic state and how horrific it is that this lean mean country has grown into this bloated socialistic bureaucratic state that is so far removed from the people that the best thing you could ever do. is drain the swamp so to speak to coin a phrase and and reduce the size of government. So was that your experience that it was difficult to deal with that. But the reason that i i wanted to do the job in the first place because How this sort of like the philanthropic arm of the federal government and has to do a lot with the poor in this country and cheeses talk so much about the poor are. We should care for them. I felt that that was a real possibility. When i got there. You know i was quite shocked by the disarray. There had been no functional. Cfo an eight years of the financial systems. Were just bizarre. How can that be for the eight years of the obama biden administration. There was no functional. Cfo for all of hud. How i can with all that. Money would billions of dollars flowing through their That there was no substantial oversight. They're not and a real audit and over eight years they couldn't do an audit because there were so many substantial defects that you couldn't audit it and so the first thing we did was to try to get a very good. Cfo we managed to get irv. Dennis a thirty seven year veteran of ernst and young who is gonna retire and enjoy life. It took a lot of arm twisting but he he did come and really did a major reorganization and Last year was the first year Had has been able to have a clean audit and over eight years. And you need to have that in place in order to be able to do. Your other programs We were very interested in self sufficiency. And of course had was the agency that pushed the zones and coordinated with all the other agencies and as the seeking a report council of economic advisers report. Last august showed an enormous benefit of five hundred thousand new jobs. We anticipating attracting one. Hundred billion dollars over ten years retracted. Seventy five billion in the first two years before covid struck the wealth people who live in that area increased eleven percent people out of poverty. You know those are the kinds of things that make a difference and it's not targeted at any specific group. It's the rising time that floats our boats and recognizing that if you created a system that encourages entrepreneurship and innovation. That the jobs would come. And that's why we had the the lowest unemployment for african american community family community communities ever not in ten years not twenty years ever wealth gap starting to close. All of these things happen. And you know there were a whole host of programs that we were able to initiate aimed toward creating self sufficiency. I hope that those will survive the current administration. Now you say the current administration. I'm not gonna get into what i think of the current quote unquote administration. But i will say this. They seem to be doing their level. Worst to take america into the dark ages. I mean it's sort of like what the blasios has done. During his reign in new york at light. Speed like warp speed. Take us back to the seventies. I have never seen anything like it and administration that it combines the most radical leftist ideology which most democrats would never vote for let. Let's be honest this mania with unbelievable incompetence it's sort of like what you just said about hard under obama you think. How can these people like the most basic business person understands. Gotta fix that got to do that. They don't seem to have the beginning of a clue on many many things and so we really experienced a kind of a renaissance at least economically under trump. And do you think that you and trump will get a second crack at it. What is your gut feeling for the for the country. But the problem is when you have government driven by ideology as opposed to facts Then you get a lot of a barent conditions. And that's what we're experiencing right now Yes i do believe that there will be another chance for conservatives and for people who who love the country and think logically as opposed to people who really want it. Fundamentally changes into something else does our country. Does our history have problems are there. Some wards absolutely And no sensible person with deny that but by the same token this country that has provided enormous opportunities for everybody higher standards of living. It is why people still are trying to get in here even illegally if it was a bastion of racism and hatred with people before me caravan trying to get in here. Come on that makes no sense at all you. You're saying that you think that a systemically racist country. Let me. Just ask you question. Do you think that this racist country would ever for example elect the black man to the white house. Of course not you know it makes no sense. It'll happen then. Let's be realistic. Never happened in a racist country. Tell us about the american cornerstone institute. I'm very excited about this. I don't understand how these things things work is. It a think tank is. What is it called as glenn back dubbed think tank slash do tank. We'd like to get things done. Okay but a group of us from hud who feel very strongly that we have to continue the fullwood momentum of our nation recognize that if we just retire and relax that things were not going to turn out well so we formed this organization to elevate the cornerstone principles that made america into a great nation. And we're talking about Our faith we're talking about Community the question is how do you about something about liberty. I know you believe these things. We have talked on this program about this before. But i'm trying to remember. How is it possible for folks like us who believe in these things to do something about them in other words. What what can the cornerstone institute. American institute do. How can it affect policy. How does that work. Well it's if you go to our website you'll see on there several conversations with the prominent individuals on a lotta topics that affect us as americans but we also have programs like the more perfect union Where we get people involved in not only the constitution but the declaration of independence and all of our founding documents to teach them and we're launching this summer we've already started process little patriots To teach our children at home school at charter schools at schools and in public schools the real history of our country. We're going to break. But i i am very excited about this when we come back. I wanna continue talking about that. I don't wanna talk about the cancel. Culture folks..

Which is why. I am so impressed. With pete. and. Seth talbot they are on a mission. You rarely see this kind of focus and commitment seriously. They recently shared with me that they are doubling down and went to literally double their total number of happy customers in the next year. And i believe they'll do it. So here's the deal if you're struggling with back neck shoulder hip or knee pain. Even general muscle aches and pains than. I'm suggesting you three week. Quick start still discounted to only nineteen ninety five about a dollar a day to see if we can get you at a painting and then after that less than the cost of a cup of coffee a day to stay in pain go to relieffactor dot com relieffactor dot com or call eight hundred five hundred eight three eight four relief factor dot com eight hundred five hundred eight three eight four.

According to the forty six page report the hurricane which hit the island in twenty seventeen killed thousands of people and left thousands more without electricity or water for months.

NAACP leader on diversity in Biden's Cabinet and commitment to civil rights

"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.
