From time to time it is important to ridicule those institutions who continually expose their stupidly. The New York Times is a perfect example.
The New York Times published a piece attempting to foment dissent within the ‘Pubs. Their core theme was correct, there are ‘Pubs fomenting dissension…just not Ben Carson.
G.O.P. Hopes for Unity May Be Upset by Ben Carson
By TRIP GABRIEL
INDIANAPOLIS — A conservative think tank recently sent Ben Carson, a potential presidential candidate and fierce critic of the federal health care overhaul, a series of messages to post on Twitter during the grilling in the House of Jonathan Gruber, the M.I.T. economist who advised the Obama administration.
Mr. Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon, has set off a prairie fire of rank-and-file conservatives urging him to run for the Republican nomination. He liked the think tank’s idea, but he knows that he excites supporters because he is an unscripted outsider. So he wrote his own Twitter posts, including, “Why was it necessary to disrupt entire medical system to take care of the needs of 15% of the people?”
The New York Times says that the organization, Run Ben Run, has collected so much money, more than a comparable organization supporting Hillary Clinton, that Carson may have the “potential to throw a wrench into the establishment’s desire to unify early.” (Note: the establishment mentioned by the NYT is not the GOP.)
Not only could Ben Carson disrupt liberal plans, he could present “the danger of turning off moderates if his divisive views continue to gain traction.”
But the real disrupters of a unified GOP is not Ben Carson. It’s not Rand Paul nor Marco Rubio despite the current battle between the two over Cuba and illegal aliens. The real creators of dissent within the GOP is the Washington establishment led by John Boehner and Mitch McConnell.
No, the New York Times believes Carson is a dangerous person. Why? He’s a commentator on FOX News.
Mr. Carson has built a profile on heavy exposure as a commentator on Fox News, an uplifting biography and, especially, intemperate criticism of the Age of Obama that might seem to disqualify a major-party candidate. An African-American, he has called the president’s health care law “the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.” — NWT.
Why am I picking on the New York Times? I’m doing so because it is important to display the bias of liberal media. And—the fact that the NYT is not a news organization but a propaganda outlet for the liberal agenda and the democrat party.
Speaking of GOP unity, Boehner and McConnell ensured their buddy and fundraiser, Karl Rove and his Crossroads organization, benefited in the CROMnibus bill just rammed through Congress. It relieves Rove of more constraints to fund establishment candidates against those supported by the Tea Party and other grassroots organizations.

[FT: “Campaign finance experts say anyone considering a [presidential] run will have to raise at least $100m just to be seen as a credible candidate. To win, the cost is expected to top $1bn — nearly $1.5m for every day between now until November 8, 2016. That is an awful lot of handshakes.” ] — FOX Newsletter, December 22, 201.
It’s going to be an interesting two years until 2016.
