Yesterday, I stumbled across something Ben Carson said that brought me to a screeching halt.

In an interview with The Hill in which Carson defended his decision to endorse the guy who compared him to pathological pedophiles, Carson said:

“I needed to know that he could listen to other people, that he could change his opinions, and that some of the more outlandish things that he’s said, that he didn’t really believe those things,” Carson said.

When asked which statements Trump might back away from, Carson demurred.

“I’ll let him talk about that because I don’t think it’s fair for me to relay a private conversation,” he said.

Oh, really? So, Donald Trump really doesn’t believe some of the things he said, but you aren’t going to tell us which of the things he said that he doesn’t believe?!

That’s like saying, “Here’s a plate of cookies a friend of mine baked. Help yourself. He put poison in one of them and pointed it out to me, but because he pointed it out to me in private, I’m not going to tell you which one it is.”…

Donald Trump canceled his rally at the UIC Pavilion Friday evening due to concerns about safety, according to his spokesperson. …a total of five arrests were made and two police officers suffered minor injuries including one who was hit in the head with a bottle and required stitches. The Chicago Fire Department said two civilians also suffered minor injuries and were transported to Stroger and Loretto hospitals.… As the crowd waited for the event to begin, it became apparent that it included at least hundreds of protesters. Activist Jedidiah Brown told me he and other infiltrators were on a mission to disrupt Trump's speech as often as possible.… At the announcement, undercover protesters who had entered the Pavilion as Trump supporters broke into wild celebration, shouting "We stopped Trump! We stopped Trump!" The ensuing chaos included pushing, shoving and a few fistfights with several people taken away by Chicago and UIC police.… "The police, they don't seem to be doing anything to get anyone out of here, so everyone in the parking garage started to get weapons out of their car, they're ready to fight," said a caller… "There's hate in that pavilion," says protester Sophia Sarabia. "We believe with our prayer and our drums, we can overcome this hate with love. God is love."…

She's right that there was hate in that pavilion!

A New York judge has dismissed a petition that claimed Ted Cruz was not eligible to run for President of the United States because he is not a “natural born citizen.” Judge David A. Weinstein’s ruling was procedural, stating that the petitioners, Barry Korman and William Gallo, failed to submit timely objections, which stripped the court of jurisdiction over the petition. His ruling did not consider the actual merits of whether Cruz, who was born in Canada, qualified as a natural-born citizen in this year’s presidential election.…
