'How dare you imply this!' - Donald Trump compares Ben Carson to something awful

"Have you no shame?"

When will God fearing, decent conservative, constitutional Americans say "enough is enough?"

Now Donald J. Trump compares Dr. Ben Carson to a "child molester?" He says he is very worried because "you can't cure people like that"!

Wow. Where do I start?

First, how dare you imply this! This is beneath even you Mr. Trump. Is there nothing you won't say for headlines? Is there no road you will not drive down or body you will drive over to become the nominee?

You say you cannot "cure people like that". Because Mr. Carson had the guts to tell the truth (which CNN and Politico refuse to believe) that he tried to stab someone and hit his mother with a hammer when he was young, you use it to your advantage.

If you read the bible, you claim to love so much, you will see that it is filled with stories of men and women who did far worse and were healed through the power of Jesus Christ.

If you don't believe you can "cure people like this" should we never let people out of prison for violent crimes?

If he hasn't been "cured", shouldn't you call DCF? He must be beating his wife and children! Will you ask him at the next debate if he has stopped beating them yet?

I know you have said that you have "never felt the need to ask for forgiveness". So I wouldn't expect you to understand the healing power of Jesus Christ but maybe you should investigate the concept because I have seen it change the meanest of men and the coldest of hearts into today's Giants of Humanity.

Nelson Mandela is one. Read his story.

Better yet read the story of Eldridge Cleaver the monster black panther of the 1960s who brutally raped women just because they were white.

He was sent to prison, found the Lord, became a follower of Christ, a model citizen who spoke to the youth and in the most bizarre turn of events even became a Republican.

(Btw - his conversion to the principles of constitutional conservatism was actually believable with logical pivot points and a real time line unlike your's which is supposed to have happened coincidentally a mere six months before you announced your candidacy.)

Was his "healing" real? Was he cured? Or was the second half of Cleaver's life, after his conversion, fake?

If it was real, then why can't it happen to the man you are running against? Or do you think Ben Carson is worse than the serial rapist Cleaver?

Mr. Trump, I cannot believe the American people cannot see right through you and this show you are putting on.

One of us is wildly out of step with America, and perhaps it is me. But, if this country has become a place where a man such as you can become president, then I am proud to be out of step.

Personally, I believe that you are a very sad pathetic little figure who is actually a very insecure man or perhaps you are flat out delusional but either way, I pray that you find the peace and understanding that only Christ can give you.

When you humble yourself enough to seek His face and His forgiveness you will understand there is hope for people who are "pathological."

For instance, I believe that with a broken heart and contrite spirit there is even hope to cure those who are pathological narcissists.

"Have you no shame?"When will God fearing, decent conservative, constitutional Americans say "enough is enough?"Now...

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray discussed the Trump defense team's arguments in the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump.

"This is different than what the Democrats were doing," Glenn said of the Trump team's impeachment defense. "We know the case of the Democrats, they just kept going over and over and over, for three days, the same stuff. The Republicans, at least on Saturday, did not ... and I thought it was really, really good."

Glenn added, "The president's defense was very compelling."

Americans are getting crushed by healthcare costs. In 2018 alone, we spent $3.6 trillion on healthcare — that's more than $11,000 per American and nearly a fifth of the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP). It's on everyone's minds, which is why it has taken center stage in the Democratic party's primary. Of course, the solutions offered by the current crop of presidential candidates would do nothing to help alleviate that enormous spending. In fact, it would only add to it — what with Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All and Joe Biden's proposed ObamaCare expansion.

However, what also deserves attention in discussions about plans that increase the government's role in health care is how religious organizations would be affected. Faith-based hospitals and health care sharing ministries (HCSMs) play an important role in America, often serving as a critical provider and/or facilitator of payments for medical services in many states. If plans like Medicare for All were implemented, these groups would be at risk of going bankrupt or being severely curtailed due to the elimination of choice that comes with these proposals.

Instead of imposing a top-down and expensive health care system overhaul, faith-based providers and groups should be allowed to continue offering a variety of plans that work as high-quality, often cheaper alternatives. And more Americans should consider them.

Instead of imposing a top-down and expensive health care system overhaul, faith-based providers and groups should be allowed to continue offering a variety of plans that work as high-quality, often cheaper alternatives.

As mentioned, one such option is a health care sharing ministry. In this model, individuals contribute money into a pool managed by a religiously or ethically-affiliated organization, and costs for medical treatment are shared by people who adhere to that organization's belief system. Typically, applicants are required to sign a statement of faith in order to be accepted. It's basically like a subscription service: consumers pay a set amount of money into the ministry every month. Then, when they have a medical need or incident, they submit a claim to the ministry. Members whose claims are approved are reimbursed by the ministry from that pool of funds. Note, these ministries don't cover procedures they deem immoral.

Because providers are often getting paid in cash under this model — and typically within 90 days — patients are able to negotiate significant discounts, in some cases slicing procedures' costs to a fraction of the initial price. Insurance companies, by comparison, tend to not pay dollar for dollar on claims, and certainly not in cash. Additionally, insurance companies usually have onerous paperwork requirements, forcing doctors to spend half of their time on electronic health records and desk work. This increase in demand for administrative work is partly responsible for the United States leading the world in administrative costs in healthcare.

There are various types of HCSMs, each offering different benefits depending on what the individual needs — and a lot of savings on monthly plans. Take Christian Healthcare Ministries, for example. It's resulted in enormous savings for its members. Whereas the average healthcare plan can cost about $400 a month on the low end (with high deductibles), CHM plans can run between $78-172 a month for a single person. These kinds of plans are particularly great options for people who are relatively healthy and young, where the need for doctors and prescription drugs is less likely.

HCSMs have seen explosive growth in popularity recently. In 2014, there were only approximately 160,000 members. By 2018, membership ballooned to about 1 million HCSM members around the United States who have shared over $1 billion in medical expenses. But unfortunately, many people still feel locked into the traditional — and expensive — health care insurance model. HCSMs provide a way out, and, depending on their belief system, people should research them and see if there's one that best suit their needs. If more people deviate away from the traditional health care insurance market, insurance companies would be incentivized to adjust their pricing. That won't be possible, of course, if plans like Medicare for All are implemented.

Health care is one of life's biggest expenses, and voters are understandably desperate for a plan that cuts costs without compromising quality of care or access to it. Alternative options to health care insurance such as HCSMs are practical, free-market solutions that saves money. Americans should sift through these options before subscribing to plans that will only break the bank.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."
