      Ben Carson is probably the most honorable man to ever hold this office. The slow-walking dems could have had this done in January. The dems are too dim to get things done. Let’s show them all the door on election day next.

    At last! Mr Ben Carson!

    A long wait, but finally he has arrived at HUD.

    God Bless you Sir! I am sure you will do an excellent job. The Democrats have stalled your nomination for a reason, they are petrified of you! 🙂

    The doctor is in the house!

    I think he will do a fantastic job…because he knows the real situation. He lived it. Dr. Carson will be one of Trump’s cruise missiles aimed directly at the problem of inner cities.

      Perfectly stated, Keln. A great man for the job.


    • Lack is not all says:

      It will be like a dream if Dr Carson could improve the inner cities. If so he will deserve to be acused of collusion with the Russians by the dems. Pretty son that Russian thing will be like a badge of honor, prove of success.

        If anyone can do it, Ben Carson can.

        There are some really great people who want to be involved with this and I’m sure Dr. Carson is a really great guy to work with.

        I want this so bad. I want minorities in this country to recognize their place in it as Americans so bad. I want them to realize their inheritance and put an end to this divisive, destructive identity politics that has torn apart this nation for so long.

          There are three central problems in improving the “inner city.”

          Anyone concerned with genuine improvement needs to get a dialog started with the community, and community leaders, and hammer hard at these realities. Eventually, the “Black Community” has to realize these big challenges, and either accept what is recognized as the right way to improve things, or come up with their own solutions, and work at those.

          First: the lack of fathers. This is partly a problem of welfare – we will give welfare to single moms, and fatherless kids, but not to anyone if a man with two good arms and two good legs is around. So, couples either fake on paper like they are not together, or men simply do not connect the concept of “family” with “sex,” and dance away from their cute little moral obligations.
          Second: reducing crime can be achieved by a few strategies, but one HAS to be to get tough on crime – putting people in jail.
          Third: having and achieving high expectations in public schooling. No social promotion. No dumbed-down requirements. <–This is a problem for the Black community to figure out, but also is majorly created by teacher unions.

          At the same time, the rest of us have to be ready to participate in solutions. Taxes, changes in school systems, whatever. I don't know what the solutions will be, but nothing will get better unless these three problems get addressed for real – not with poison from progressives about who owes you and how much

    OK everyone, what 3 actions should Ben Carson take first?


    • Black_Knight_Rides says:

      What would you want from HUD?
      Not at all clear to me.


      • All American Snowflake says:

        Maybe to stop housing illegal aliens and house Americans. President Trump promised us that no Americans would be homeless. The sort of Americans who are the victims of our society’s poor education system and worse still veterans who are left with PTSD after fighting our wars. Widows and orphans of wounded warriors should get help here. Make HUD Great for Americans not Illegal aliens who are living in Section 8 housing with their husbands/boyfriends receiving free training in construction and other well paying jobs on the taxpayer’s dime.

          Look into fraudulent appraisals/ bond refis. What’s been going on around metro Atlanta
          for 20 plus years would amaze/ enrage you. I’m sure that we’re not alone in this issue.

          Finally, look closely at areas that have a lot of fires in multifamilies. The 3 Fs for cooking
          the books are Fire, Foreclosure, Fraud ( as in appraisal/ refinance).

          Some counties that might be looked at : Dekalb, Fulton ( Georgia). Prince George County
          (MD), Westchester County, NY, Lake County, Illinois. These would be easier to approach. That’s why more obvious ones like Cook County are left out of the mix.

        This link is from 2011. I don’t live in the area so I don’t know how it’s doing now, but it sounds good in the AARP article (“Nonprofit — Soldier On — provides affordable housing, support and job training”

        Maybe some decent schools to go along with the housing:


    • Bull Durham says:

      Get going with the Rev. Darrel Scott and Jim Brown programs in inner cities. Make a bridgehead for job training and the changes in education with Betsy DeVos. Call for immediate investment in small projects that can become templates for future success.

    Been waiting for this man to become a real part of our administration forever. We all must have our own favorite moments from the whole debates, campaign, election cycle of course. Does anyone else here share that moment as their favorite with me, when Trump stood with Dr. Carson in the wings of the ill-fated debate while Jeb (!) swept right by with no inkling of what a jerk he appeared to be while Trump and Carson shone, standing side by side? So super we do get them both in the end, isn’t it?

    I consider Dr. Ben Carson an American hero–a truly stellar ‘success story’. His appointment as HUD Secretary makes me very happy. Nobody knows more about the challenges and struggles experienced by many of our fellow citizens than Dr. Ben Carson.

    I often wonder if ‘The Next Ben Carson’ was shot and killed last night, in South Chicago, without ever having the opportunity to realize that potential.

      I was born and raised in Chicago. Ever since I first saw Dr Carson I prayed that he would some day find a way to help.There are so many good people that are really trapped in the inner city. President Trump’s law enforcement agenda needs to be brought in first so other help can be brought in safely, but I’m really hoping that Betsy De Vos and Ray Lewis/Jim Brown can help make that difference. I was impressed with what I saw of the program Lewis/Brown already have in place. Here is where we can all offer more prayers.

    Notice how little these cabinet posts know little about the position. Granted, they will be advised by their subordinates but is that not just adding more layers of government?


    • Lucille says:

      So far President Trump has picked not only knowledgeable men and women but those whose abilities are quite suited to the positions in which they now serve. They will certainly all adapt, grow, and learn quickly as their past lives have shown they are capable.

    Hope they utilize George Forman’s THE AMER-I-CAN FOUNDATION FOR SOCIAL CHANGE (foundation uses all caps). PTrump talked with Mr. Forman in Trump Tower. I would be a great place for Dr. Carson to start and it gets out of the swamp land eople & vendors/contractors.

    We are behind you Dr. Carson! God bless your endeavors as you follow His lead.
