Ben Carson's Caught In Biggest Lie Yet

Lie after lie after lie. Ben Carson has turned into a total fabrication. Could this latest one end his campaign?

Ben Carson's Caught In Biggest Lie Yet

A few months ago Ben Carson talked about the time he was in a Popeye’s Chicken and a robber came in, pulling a gun on Ben. After the media started looking into it, it turned out to be a lie and his campaign shutdown any questions about it

Then we started hearing that Ben Carson was “thug” in his childhood, beating someone with a hammer and stabbing another. CNN started looking into these stories and found out that they may very well be fabrications. Of course Ben has called CNN liars

These are just a few examples, and what has been most interesting with them is that the right has jumped to the defense of Dr. Ben. Of course they would. I mean it gives them another reason to vilify the “liberal media”.

That was this morning, and in politics things can change very quickly. Here’s the latest fabrication:

Ben Carson’s campaign on Friday admitted, in a response to an inquiry from POLITICO, that a central point in his inspirational personal story was fabricated: his application and acceptance into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

The academy has occupied a central place in Carson’s tale for years. According to a story told in Carson’s book, “Gifted Hands,” the then-17 year old was introduced in 1969 to Gen. William Westmoreland, who had just ended his command of U.S. forces in Vietnam, and the two dined together. That meeting, according to Carson’s telling, was followed by a “full scholarship” to the military academy.

The entire West Point story was pivotal in his support from the right. It was the pretty bow on the package, which has now been ripped off, tearing the paper with it. It’s to the point that even right wing sites that were defending Carson as early as yesterday are now saying he is done

Ben Carson has proven himself to be a serial liar. That kind of behavior isn’t normal and should call into scrutiny everything he has ever claimed. If he doesn’t drop out soon, then I’ve got a feeling his numbers are going to enter free fall with polls in the very near future. Let’s face it. This guy is everybit as crazy as his theory on the pyramids.
