Default Right Wing News Blog Reports Ben Carson Just Joined the GOP

In the latest bizarre story to leak into the political election news cycle, the right wing news blog American Mirror has dug up evidence since repeated by The Drudge Report, that Ben Carson only joined the Republican Party last October 31st, and has never voted in a primary election. With Carson now trailing Donald Trump by a single point in the latest national FOX News poll, the Republican's two front running candidates now share the common distinction of having their GOP loyalty called into question. Carson's prior affiliation with the Independent Party of Florida lacked key GOP platform components like pro-life, pro-second amendment, and religion, while including items such as higher taxes on sports events, sustainable development and social justice.

EXCLUSIVE: Records show Ben Carson became Republican less than one year ago

OCTOBER 12, 2015
BY KYLE OLSON

Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump has received a lot of scrutiny for donating to Democratic politicians in the past. But Republican primary voters may be curious to know why one of his chief rivals, Dr. Ben Carson, officially joined the Republican Party less than one year ago.

The American Mirror has obtained several public records that show Dr. Ben Carson, one of Trump’s chief rivals, did not affiliate with the Republican Party until he changed his voter registration on October 31, 2014.

Carson filed this “record update/change” on that date to change his party affiliation to “Republican Party of Florida” — less than six months before declaring his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president.



The office of Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections confirms, “Dr. Carson was previously registered with a minor political party: Independence Party of Florida (IDP).”

Other records show Carson was also registered as an independent in Maryland. According to the Baltimore County Board of Elections, despite registering to vote in that county in 2001, Carson only voted in the general elections of 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012 — and never in any primaries.

So does it matter that a leading contender for the Republican nomination for president officially became a Republican only a short time ago?

“You’ll never find a candidate that you agree with one hundred percent,” Texas tea party leader Katrina Pierson tells The American Mirror. “But, he should at least subscribe to your fundamental platform longer than six months prior to seeking to be your national leader.

“Six months prior to Dr. Carson’s announcement, his platform was void of top Republican primary issues including life, the second amendment, and God. It did, however, include sustainable development, social justice, and a 25% tax on all sporting events,” Pierson says, referring to the Independence Party of Florida.


The Carson campaign did not respond to an email seeking an explanation.

So two of the three "outsiders" without political experience favored by the Tea Party clowns are now on the list as being suspected as potential Manchurian candidates without "real conservative" pedigree. With a GOP party held captive by the far right that's so divided they can't even find anyone to accept the 2nd most powerful job in Washington, what does this mean for the voters who may begin looking elsewhere now that the top two candidates have questions surrounding them? Does Ted Cruz or Carly Fiorina start moving up?

Is this the same sort of dumb comeback like when you call the person pointing out racism a racist?

The bat sh*t crazy statements emanating from Carson's cake hole on a daily basis are obviously crafted to appeal to the Teabilly base, but you have to wonder whether his campaign has a strategy for the general election?

Of course, the same question can be asked of Trump and all the other clowns in the car.

Actually, I think Carson believes everything he says.

The left doesn't care what Carson's party affiliation was but the Tea Party seems to care deeply about who is a true believer. They're spending copious amounts of time flogging Hillary over the word "hoped" in trying to paint her as someone who changes her views. Any dummy (almost) can see why adopting pro-life, second amendment and religious extremist views only six months before he filed to run as a true believer GOP righty might be concerning to the people he's seeking his support from.

The fact that *this* is a talking point among top conservatives tells you how far off the deep end the right has gone.

Which seems to validate the perception that Carson is simply saying whatever his campaign believes it takes to bank the wingnut vote.

Both Rump and Carson now have issues with whether they are real conservatives or just posers looking to tap the passion of the psycho vote. The lack of evidence for pro-life positions in the wake of revelations he also used fetal tissue from abortions in his practice could obviously be something other righties may seize on. The question is, who benefits most from this new information?

There is zero chance that other GOP candidates won't use Carson's lack of a voting record and true believer status to now find a way to go after him. This is especially significant when you consider that up till now the other candidates have been reluctant to attack the only black candidate in the race over concerns they will look more racist than they already do. Carson has been the GOP's token for supposed racial acceptance, but it's doubtful any of them thought he'd be any real threat. Hence, he's basically been able to skate free of his competitor's attacks. With a potential policy issue now surfacing...at least three in fact...the door is now open for open season on the good doctor. Since he's now risen to Rump's top rival, we can expect the right wing nuts to open up with the big guns.

Carson is playing the Christian cards while Trump is pandering to the white supremacists. This will be entertaining. Watch as the idiots in the crowd get twisted around in circles.
