Breaking: Politico Backtracks After Lies About Ben Carson EXPOSED!

Breaking: Politico Backtracks After Lies About Ben Carson EXPOSED!

Politico’s controversial story about 2016 GOP Presidential hopeful Ben Carson has people talking.

Unfortunately, most of that talk is wrong.

As a result, they have now amended their story, no longer accusing Carson of fabricating his West Point claims…

According to Guy Benson at TownHall.Com:

“Nowhere in those paragraphs (of his book) did Carson claim anything regarding an “application and acceptance” to West Point, which is part of the allegation leveled in Politico’s opening sentence.  In fact, Carson has stated elsewhere that he only applied to one college: Yale. Furthermore, the story’s characterization that Carson’s campaign “conceded the story was false” isn’t supported by any of the subsequent quotes.

Indeed, the Carson camp is now vehemently denying the report’s entire premise. Some online observers quickly noted that the prestigious military institution in upstate New York does not technically offer “scholarships,” per se, and that’s true.  There are no tuition or living expense costs associated with attending the school; students “pay for” their education through required military service post-graduation. But that’s not dispositive, either.

I’d argue that rather than advancing a fabricated, resume-puffing lie, it’s entirely plausible that a young Ben Carson interpreted an encouraging recruitment pitch from a top US general as a “full scholarship” offer.”

    • Ben makes sure the less we know about how exactly he’d govern, the better, Ben has no experience in Governing, so his life and History gets more FACT CHECKING, that’s not the Media, or inquiring Citizen’s minds FAULT, deal with it.

      There’s no Media War, the fact checking seems like War, the Facts and Truth, especially your own words seem like WAR, again get over it and sell your candidate.

      • Bruce, if the media applied that standard to candidates on booth sides of the aisle, then you would be correct that they are just doing their job. But, they flagrantly ignore the half-truths and flat-out lies spoken by Hillary and Bernie on a regular basis.

        • Half a brain knows what you said is a flat footed LIES, Hillary has been
          vetted for years, what you desperately want is for it to TRUE and, for it to
          DESTROY her, you got neither after Hillary being the most vetted and the longest VETTED POLITICIAN IN AMERICAN HISTORY, you keep repeating the tired Tropes, Claptrap and Tripe, hoping, praying and wishing just some of it stick and destroy Hillary.

          Well you lose, lose, lose and you are deeply tired of it and would lies
          as you have above, it’s been Whitewater, Cross Country and Benghazi and nothing Illegal, although, as judge of one, she guilty, just for being on the Democrats side.

          You ignore you’re E-mails and Private Servers; G, Bush, D Cheney, Jeb
          Bush, Condi, Powell, Carl Rove, all your own and all the Killings of Embassy and Foreign Service workers (ON REPUBLICAN WHITE HOUSE AND FULL CONTROL OF CONGRESS WATCHES…, while your Republican President and Congress had FULL CONTROL, I repeat.
          DEAL with your precious ben’s vetting and stop the crying, he’s
          SOCIOPATHIC Lair and we will keep exposing him back into the basement…

          Know this the TWO key Voting blocs; Latino and African American will never vote Ben and he can’t win, without them.

          Now sell Ben to us (because you need my and others votes) and ask him
          since he bases everything on his bible and god, WHAT god, WHAT bible is he talking about?

          Nobody is desperate, yes we are talking to everyone, that is his history, he never held office, he has no business, he’s led, people are not stupid, Ben is going down on his own record, nobody is making up anything, read his book, check out his professed religion and stop calling him a Christian he’s not, he can’t even name a bible, or what god he’s talking about?

  1. It also says he knew he would have to serve in the military for 4 years after school. Standard payback for cadets. Just trying to twist anything he says purposely. The left cannot stand an honest person. Look at who they have running. Hillary.

    • Ben makes sure the less we know about how exactly he’d govern, the better, Ben has no experience in Governing, so his life and History gets more FACT CHECKING, that’s not the Media, or inquiring Citizen’s minds FAULT, deal with it.

      • I hope you listened to the news today. CNN just blasted Politico for giving the wrong facts on Carson. Maybe you should do some fact checking yourself.

      • Bruce, well Hilary and Bernie have a lot of so called experience in government and they are in no way savor or form fit to be President. Those are FACTS that the media that is grilling Carson are just ignoring. So yes, it is a media problem

  2. Carson polls high on honesty and integrity. He beats Clinton head to head nationally. The media, left and right will do all they can to discredit his honesty and integrity. They want Clinton, who lacks both. All the media has done for me today, is make me donate more than I planned to Dr Carson’s campaign.

    • Scared of his own words and his supporters are just as scared… watch, he’s going down with his own words… look, you can’t sell him and he can’t sell himself, except to the lemming Right wing base and they will abandon him, once the heat gets to SUN levels, we’re exposing Ben, with his own words.

      Ben makes sure the less we know about how exactly he’d govern, the better, Ben has no experience in Governing, so his life and History gets more FACT CHECKING, that’s not the Media, or inquiring Citizen’s minds FAULT, deal with it.

      • Obama had no experience
        either. Pease check how much time he spent in the Illinois Senate or US
        Senate?
        Why can’t liberals reply in a nice way without being angry
        or sarcastic?

  3. It wasn’t the Media who wrote Ben Carson’s Book… it was Ben Carson’s own words, which they reported, now Ben is disputing his on people and Ben’s cry baby supporters want to twist Ben’s own words, this is more of the same lying Ben himself later wants to obfuscate and parse. And still makes nothing clear, except he not qualified to be president of anything, but his foundation (if he that at all, I believe his wife holds)

    This only helps him among his own sic-o-faint and un-questioning and fawning supporters, they blindly lap up every word, again not the Media’s words and history and that is what happens to all candidates and they cry “attack” when it’s fact checking and due questioning, it’s not pretty, it’s not pretty, but it is part of.

    Just as CNBC won the debate, which was supposed to be about the Candidates, informing the Citizen, winning them over to their side, but instead, they took no opportunity to “inform” on Policies and leadership, but instead cry about the Moderators.

    This cry baby, I’ am being smeared, his word, his book, his life, but no one can report the facts and ask him about it, because he cries smears.

    Ben Carson, should never of run for President, way too many inconsistencies and too must money making, more than substance on being a leader and he’ll fall, not because anyone is being unfair (and there is unfairness, all get this).

    IF you, or Ben Carson fabricated anything, same as BRAIN WILLIAMS fabricated… you question what is he talking about and what really happened?

    Legitimate Objectivity… Ben is being called out like everyone else, stop whining and pissing and moaning and make His case for president, that is absent in all this, make the case.

    AGAIN: What bible and what god is ben Carson talking about? I want to know and last why is every supporters scared to sell ben Ben Carson to us?

    • Well the only reason that
      Obama made it to President was because the Media would not vet him and let him
      lie and lie. I still want to know how he got a Social Security number
      from a state that he never lived in that belonged to another man. Also
      why do no classmates remember him from Colombia University? Also why has Obama sealed everything about himself and spent
      millions keeping everything secret? Why do
      some of his Kenya relatives say he was born in Kenya? Why way did his wife say they had visited her husband
      birthplace i.e. Kenya? If you answer these questions back them up with fact and
      where does the answer appear in a place that can be verified!!

  4. Ben makes sure the less we know about how exactly he’d govern, the better, Ben has no experience in Governing, so his life and History gets more FACT CHECKING, that’s not the Media, or inquiring Citizen’s minds FAULT, deal with it.

  5. 2 Timothy 2:15King James Version (KJV)

    15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

  6. SOMEONE FROM BEN CARSON’S camp needs to sell Ben Carson… no one is going to vote for him from my sphere, until we are SOLD, we don’t take people on just believe, he’s not jesus and he’s not a Christian, as far ans I can tell and I can’t tell, not from what he vaguely say.

    • Damn good thing your sphere doesn’t speak for the general voting public which at this point has Carson in the lead over everyone. You saying he’s not a Christian shows you have no idea what the word means. Your support of Hilary indicates you have a genetic disorder that your head is so far up your backside that your brain is starving for oxygen.

  7. The opposition to Carson’s integrity has to stoop this low to twist a candidly honest expression that Ben thought was a “scholarship” offer. Actually these remarks testify openly to the “outsider” that Ben Carson is. We need someone in the Whitehouse that represents the people, not the established government, not the military, but the “We the People”. Keep on keeping on Dr. Ben!

  8. If this is the most “shocking!” expose the Left & Media can bring against Carson, then they are in for a long and painful night with lots of alcohol.

  9. Half a brain knows what Ben supporters said is flat footed LIES, Hillary has been

    vetted for years, what you desperately want is for it to TRUE and, for it to DESTROY her, you got neither after Hillary being the most vetted and the longest VETTED POLITICIAN IN AMERICAN HISTORY, you keep repeating the tired Tropes, Claptrap and Tripe, hoping, praying and wishing just some of it stick and destroy Hillary.

    Well you lose, lose, lose and you are deeply tired of it and would lies as you have above, it’s been Whitewater, Cross Country and Benghazi and nothing Illegal, although, as judge of one, she guilty, just for being on the Democrats side.

    or what god he’s talking about?

  10. The first time I read on this thread that Ben Carson was a lair … I gave benefit of doubt. Surely someone who comments over and over and over can spell four letter words. But then, I read a couple more of same person’s comments. Lair, lair. Sweety, Bruce, I hate to tell you that the word is liar … and it doesn’t describe Dr. Carson.
