The day President Ben Carson restored America’s dignity

By Tom Quiner

UnknownThe moment was electric.

Dr. Ben Carson was about to be sworn in as this nation’s 45th president.

A chill permeated this 20th day of January in the year 2017. But no one felt it.

The gathered throng were warmed by the fire in their belly for a great man, a man of color, who was about to replace a small man, also a man of color. Two-African American presidents in a row! although Dr. Carson simply referred to himself as an American.

His predecessor had left behind an undignified legacy of corruption and decline, both nationally and internationally.

A senior citizen wondered if Dr. Carson, make that President Carson, would address the structural failings of Social Security and Medicare.

A 35 year old mother wondered if President Carson would address the structural failures of the Affordable Care Act, which had driven up her cost of health insurance to unaffordable levels.

A business owner wondered if he would present a plan to restore fiscal sanity to our budget and reduce our national debt.

A bereaved black mother whose teenage son died in a gang fight wondered if this new black president had any better ideas than the last one on how to fix Black America.

An 18 year young black man wondered if he would do something to help him find a job.

A Polish born, but now a naturalized American, wondered if he would address the growing international threat from the Soviet Union since Putin had successfully consolidated the Ukraine, and now had his sights set on Poland.

A Jew wondered if he would present a coherent foreign policy for the Mideast that had reached, yet again, another crisis level, if that were even possible, leaving Israel in grave peril.

But it was a young, 26 year old woman who was closest to the mark. She remembered standing in this town as a teen ager nine years earlier. She had make the trek to the nation’s capital with a busload of kids to participate in the annual March for Life. She had followed the first campaign of the 44th president. She remembered how he said the first thing he would do as president was to pass the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA).

She remembered how FOCA stated that every woman in America had a fundamental right to an abortion. FOCA would throw out every single law passed by state legislatures that protected the reproductive health of mothers and the lives of their pre born by regulating and limiting human abortion.

She remembered how the 44th president failed to pass this law, but did everything possible, both legislatively, and by presidential fiat, to spread human abortion at taxpayer expense.

She looked at her belly, swollen with child. Her husband implored her to stay home for the sake of her health. But she sensed that this president was the true bearer of “hope and change,” not the false prophet, as was his predecessor.

The crowd quieted as Dr. Carson proudly placed his hand on the Bible and swore this oath:

“I do solemnly swear  that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States … so … help … me… God.”

A hush swept over the crowd as President Carson prepared to speak.

He gazed at the mammoth crowd, that so longed for deliverance from eight years of economic stagnation, moral rot, and an overbearing central government that had turned adversarial against its own citizens.

What President Carson said next sent shockwaves across the world…

“That on the first day of February, in the year of our Lord two-thousand seventeen, all pre-born persons within any State or designated part of a State, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.

And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon social necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this 20th day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two-hundred forty-first.”

Modeled after Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, history quickly recognized President Carson’s proclamation as the Justice & Emancipation for Society’s Unborn Statement (JESUS).

JESUS was a godsend for the African-American community, over half of whom are aborted each year. The human abortion toll had gotten so bad that the replacement birth rate for African-Americans had plummeted below replacement level.

The African-American community is literally dying off, exacerbated by an orgy of abortion on their pre-born.

JESUS immediately ended the carnage.

JESUS immediately restored the principles of social justice to their proper place by proclaiming that “peace begins in the womb.”

President Ben Carson quickly undid a generation of human rights abuses toward a voiceless constituency in America, the pre-born, much as Abraham Lincoln did for the slaves.

He accomplished more in the first ten minutes of his presidency than his predecessor did in his eight years, characterized as they were, by executive orders and presidential fiat.

With the stroke of a pen, President Carson’s first executive order, JESUS, liberated all of the African-American pre born. JESUS liberated ALL pre born regardless of their race, creed, gender, or sexual orientation.

Evidently, all it takes is an Executive Order.

All if takes is JESUS.

      Certainly not impossible, but unlikely. Thanks for writing!

    Bravo Tom! I too, hope this is a prophetic vision of yours as God certainly must hold you in high regard!
    Dr. Carson has spent decades saving children in Johns Hopkins hospital as well as through Carson Scholars- a foundation he and his wife have set up to foster reading through family reading rooms and to award scholarships for education. The foundation is thriving in all 50 states.

      For some reason, I have more faith in Dr. Carson’s foundation than Ms. Clinton’s. Great to hear from you, Tiffinay.
