The thing about revealing Ben Carson lies, is that Ben Carson really does not want you revealing his lies.

So after hearing all of those stories from Ben Carson about what a dangerous a troubled kid he was CNN decided to check into his story, you know because Ben Carson says a lot of crazy ass things, here is what they learned: 

"I was trying to kill somebody," Carson said, describing the incident -- which he has said occurred at age 14 in ninth grade -- during a September forum at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. 

But nine friends, classmates and neighbors who grew up with Carson told CNN they have no memory of the anger or violence the candidate has described. 

That person is unrecognizable to those whom CNN interviewed, who knew him during those formative years. 

All of the people interviewed expressed surprise about the incidents Carson has described. No one challenged the stories directly. Some of those interviewed expressed skepticism, but noted that they could not know what had happened behind closed doors. 

Gerald Ware, a classmate at Southwestern High School said he was "shocked" to read about the violence in Carson's book. 

"I don't know nothing about that," said Ware, who still lives in southwestern Detroit. "It would have been all over the whole school."

Gee what a surprise that a guy who hides behind his religious faith, and thinks that the Egyptian pyramids were built by a fictitious character in a 3000 year old book to hold grain, would make up things about his past.

By the way I myself had a violent temper as a young man, and I can assure you that if I were to run for public office and a news agency were looking for people to say things about what a bastard I was a teenager that the line would go around the block.

So how does Ben Carson respond to the fact that there seem to be no witnesses to back up his story?

Just as you would imagine.

Also courtesy of CNN:

"This is a bunch of lies, that is what it is," Carson said on CNN's "New Day" when Alisyn Camerota asked about the report by Scott Glover and Maeve Reston in which they spoke to people Carson grew up with. "This is a bunch of lies attempting to say I'm lying about my history, I think it's pathetic, and basically what the media does is they try to get you distracted."

Yes blame the media for doing their jobs, and the truly sad thing is that for some reason that actually works with the Republican voters.

However it may NOT work for Carson in this case as he has already had to admit that he lied about receiving an offer for a "full scholarship to West Point."

P.S. Okay so I wrote this post yesterday for publication that day, but then things kept coming up that pushed it until this morning.

Since I initially wrote this Carson has come forward to address the controversy, and during the press conference he COMPLETELY lost it and started to demand that the press tell HIM why they did not question Barack Obama's past as thoroughly?

He brings up a number of the crazy conservative conspiracy theories and demands to know why the press did not pursue them. You really have to see it to believe it.

      The GOP needed to present the 'first black president' to prove they aren't prejudice. Also 'proving' they are 'intelligent.' He is ideal for the party.

      I heard this on Steph Miller show and it seems like he is either trying to show how his faith "cured him" of his violent tendencies or alleged violence, or street cred like Palin does with her dead things in pictures, but it just makes them look more psycho I think?
      Of course if you listen to him (and don't fall asleep) his "pyramids as grain silo" is enough to say KooKoo bird to him, and ya know he is a repub...duh...! They are all krayier than shithouse rats! I can't wait for tues "debate" debalce? LOL

    Carson said at an event at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, “Even if all the media tries to shut you down, which they have tried very much to do with me, but they can’t because the good Lord has provided me with mechanisms like my syndicated column and Fox News. We’d be like Cuba if there were no Fox News, I ought to tell you.”

    "He looks good," Armstrong Williams said while watching Obama deliver a speech. "He looks clean. Shirt's white. The tie. He looks elegant."

    "Like most psychopaths," Carson answered. "That's why they're successful. That’s the way they look; they all look great."

    "But he knows he's telling a lie," Carson shot back. "He's trying to sell them what he thinks is not true. He's sitting their saying, 'These Americans are so stupid I can tell them anything.'

    1. The thing with surgery is that, because the doc is operating on a fellow human, many folks think the doc is something extra-special. A surgeon operating on a knee, or a hip, or the spine, is not that much different to a butcher carving up a leg of lamb or a pork shoulder. However, since the brain is still thought to be too complex for mere humans to understand, neurosurgeons have the biggest egos of all. Carson exemplifies this to the extreme. And because he specialized in the brain (why did he retire prematurely, BTW?) he considers himself brilliant in all things. Nope, he's still a highly skilled brain butcher - nothing more, nothing less.

    ...If you have the facts in mind — Carson maintained an extensive relationship with the company — when you watch this answer, his unflinching dishonesty has a chilling quality. He is a perfect con artist. And his history with Mannatech seems to serve as a precursor to his current enterprise. Carson used his inspiring story to pitch credulous (overwhelmingly Christian) customers. Carson has simply moved on to a bigger stage and cut out the middleman.

    The Republican strategy to dumb down America has definitely worked. They have convinced a very large segment not to trust anything they hear from the government or the media and believe only the propaganda pushed by Fox and other far right outlets. That is what all the attacks on the debate moderators and the media is about. To make them turn away from the truth and believe only the lies they are fed.

His campaign led the way to form a union with other like-minded candidates and negotiate a "contract" of better working conditions in future debates. Good thing Snotty Walker wasn't around to form that union and negotiate better working conditions. Oh, the irony! Guess Ben doesn't want the media to do their freaking job

      Uh, sir, this is how the process of running for President works: You decide to run, the Press presses you with question after question after question about your life/ideas/achievements, and you get annoyed, but you marshal on, until you get/or don’t get the nomination, and you win/don’t win the election. That’s it.

      The ‘background check’ that any average job might have, IS, for the presidency, this microscopic scrutiny from the press of all things you.
      If you can run the pressure of this gauntlet, then you would’ve ‘earned’ the job of president (if voters pick you).

      And let’s clear something up, while we’re at it: President Barack Hussein Obama ALREADY HAS the job of President of the United States. TWICE.
      He DID successfully navigate the press' gauntlet of scrutiny and has achieved many things as president (like those fantastic job-creation numbers in Oct).
      So you can whine and teeth-gnash about him all you like, but that’s childish and irrelevant, as he already HAS the job. You DON’T have the job, and, by all indications of your lies, behavior here, and general idiocy, you NEVER will

      There is something to exposing uncle ben, up until now he has been mellow and self confidant but what was on display was him getting very uptight and trying as hard as he could to shift the attention on his warts by blaming the media for not putting Obama's feet to the fire. But that BS won't fly because we know Obama got smeared by the rev. wright and others constantly especially by one network.

      Carson has a growing problem now. By his own doing, he has been found to be a liar, a fabricator of imagined tales about himself, and has brought about questions of his mental state. His reaction is to react angrily with any who challenge him, and to lash out at others, falsely claiming they were given better treatment than he. (Or, if he really believes this persecution, he may suffer from paranoia.)

      I suspect that growing scrutiny of him, now that he is a front-runner (hard to believe) will one day cause him to have a memorable melt down on camera and he will be forced to leave the field and enter a hospital.

  40. Sounds like Dr. Carson is not ready for prime time. If you run for President, you can expect reporters to investigate your past independent of what you tell them. But Carson is used to adulation, not someone questioning whether of not he was a gangster growing up. And obviously he was not a gangster.

    In a normal world, being a gangster is something you might try to keep hidden. This guy is incensed because his story of being a delinquent does not appear to be true. And he has sold all those books based on those lies.

    And anyone that says they were offered a scholarship to West Point was offered no such thing. West Point does not charge tuition and does not give our scholarships. One is appointed to West Point. So, it 's an appointment, not a scholarship.

    I always thought the Carson got in the race to sell more books, not to actually get the nomination.

    Next up is Marco Rubio and the credit card fraud and double billing the State. And getting paid per diem while someone else was paying for all your meals, etc....

    Whoever in his campaign thought it was a good idea for Ben Carson to get in front of a microphone yesterday needs to be fired. Because what it accomplished was to show how to get under Carson's skin -- and what happens when you do.

    The FOX Business Channel has a debate coming up this week. If I were advising any of the lower tier candidates (Bush, Kasich, Paul, even Rubio or Cruz), I would be spending this weekend on how to turn the answer to any possible question into an attack on Ben Carson's honesty and integrity. Carson might be able to ignore that once or twice, but if it happens repeatedly he will have a meltdown.

    And there will be a profound difference between a meltdown at an impromptu press conference and a presidential debate -- a heck of a lot more people will see the debate meltdown. He has a meltdown there, and his campaign will be over.

    Yesterday, Ben Carson showed every Republican campaign how to destroy him. The question is, who will use it? Someone will. He's now the front-runner, and these very ambitious men want him out of their way.

    Trump said, “You know if you think about what Carson is saying. He hit his mother over the head with a hammer. He hit a friend in the face with a lock. He tried to kill somebody with a knife and said he suffers from pathological disease. When you suffer from pathological disease, all right, you’re not really getting better unless you start taking lots of pills and things. He went into a bathroom and all of the sudden he found religion.”

    As O’Reilly tried to defend Carson, Trump called the host gullible.

    Trump went on, “You know what’s amazing, Bill? He trying to prove he did it, so he’ll have credibility. Who would want to prove this?”

    O’Reilly pulled out a version of the standard Republican youthful indiscretions excuse, and Trump said, “I never hit my mother over the head.”

    Ben Carson’s Brazen Dishonesty Still Isn’t As Bad As His Glaring Lunacy

    The recent revelations about Ben Carson’s proclivity for embellishing his life story are certain to present him with problems going forward. He has now been found to have been less than truthful about a scholarship offer to West Point. On the same subject he said that he met with General Westmoreland at time that he was hundreds of miles away. His recollections of childhood hostility have come under scrutiny for having changed in substantive ways on each telling. The tale of cowardice in a fast food restaurant when he directed a gunman to assault someone else has no evidence of ever having occurred. He appears to be making up his legend as he goes along.

    As serious as that sort of mendacity is, it is still not the biggest problem with Ben Carson and his improbable candidacy for president.
