    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson suggested on Sunday that Americans should vote for Hillary Clinton if they wanted to elect the person with the most foreign policy experience.

    During an interview on Fox News, host Chris Wallace pointed out that the GOP hopeful’s poll numbers had dropped after the attacks in Paris because people felt that he did not have the “right experience to be president.”

    “How do you persuade the American people that at a time of terror, a time of domestic threat, you’re fit to be commander-in-chief?” Wallace wondered.

    Carson argued that voters would pick him because he had “logical policies.”

    “If people actually listened to what I have been saying, they will see that it makes perfectly good sense,” the candidate insisted. “I believe that the American people are smart enough to recognize that we’re in a very different time right now, and it’s not necessarily the one who shouts the loudest, it’s not necessarily the one who claims to have all this great experience.”

    “The fact of the matter is, there’s nobody running who has a great deal of international experience except for Hillary Clinton,” he continued. “And you see where that has led.”

    “So that’s not necessarily the thing that has to count, you have to look at a person’s lifetime experiences.”

    According to Carson, Republicans who criticized him for mispronouncing Hamas were missing the “substance of what is being said.”

    “I’ve probably had the most experience making life or death decisions, probably far more 2 AM phone calls that anybody else,” he opined. “And let’s let the American people decide whether that is the right combination. Or maybe the right combination is somebody who has spent a lot of time talking about stuff. We’ll see.”

    Ummm...yes. She was Secretary of State.

    She didn't do much good in that position, but she had the job.

    Trump and Carson have never been elected dog catcher. Sanders is a junior Senator from a tiny state.

    Yep, it'll be interesting. I could see this factor playing an important role once we get closer to Election Day. Although Hillary would definitely just feel like a win for the corrupt establishment.

    The problem with Sanders is that he's just another idealogue who would serve just to divide us more. More taxes to cover outrageously expensive government programs, more forced PC nonsense (because we're so evolved now, no one should ever feel offended) etc.

    So the question becomes "Do you want a President with no foreign policy experience at all or do you want a President who is a proven failure at foreign policy?"

    Sad thing is: that sounds like a joke but that really will be our choice in November.

    Bill Clinton as Governor of Arkansas issued "bearer bonds" which allow large amounts of money to be moved with no paper trail. This dovetails nicely with the activities at Mena, Arkansas. Regular flights from John Hull's Costa Rican ranch, the one with five airstrips.

    Yes. He was the head of the CIA, chief of the US convoy to China under Ford.
