Ben Carson Launches His Own “America First” Initiative – It’s A New Think Tank That Champions “Faith, Liberty, And Life”

When Dr. Ben Carson was the Housing and Urban Development Secretary, he stayed true to his views as a conservative of faith. And millions of right-wing citizens loved him for this reason.

But now that the Joe Biden administration has taken over, Carson’s fans have one question — what is Dr. Ben going to do now? Will he continue in the political sphere?

Well, the good doctor does indeed have a plan. And one could call it a wonderful “America First” concept, too.

During his term under former President Donald Trump, Carson often stood up for individual rights, freedom of religion, and the importance of community and liberty for all.

In short, this is a man who strongly supported the Constitution and the rights of America’s individuals, and he wasn’t about to bow to leftist pressure.

Now, as Carson steps back from the political side of things, he’s going to remain proactive: he plans to spread his views far and wide across the nation.

From Fox News:

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson announced Wednesday that he is launching a conservative think tank to ‘engage with local governments and work with communities to find solutions to our nation’s problems.’

Carson’s new initiative is called The American Cornerstone Institute, and it encapsulates the opinions and views held by millions of citizens.

The Institute definitely showcases Carson’s support of right-wing values, but it’s also about finding a “new hope,” as he wrote in a RealClearPolitics article:

ACI will focus on promoting and preserving individual and religious liberty, helping our country’s most vulnerable find new hope, and developing methods to maximize government’s efficiency and effectiveness to best serve all our nation’s citizens.

The website for the group is already live and you can view it here.

As you can see, it presents us with four key elements: Faith. Liberty. Community. Life.

The group will work hard to tackle “a diverse set of issues,” many of which continue to plague so many American residents. Homelessness and crime are definitely high on the list.

On top of this, the Institute puts its Christian foot forward, and isn’t afraid to do it.

Carson quoted scripture in his announcement, saying “if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.” Obviously, he’s referring to the current divisiveness that has taken hold in America.

And this is precisely what he wants to erase — this growing gap between Right and Left.

Dr. Ben Carson was a strong voice of reason in recent years. And for many, it’s comforting to know he will continue to push that reason forward in the immediate future.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dr. Ben Carson has announced a new initiative designed to help and heal American citizens.
  • It’s called The American Cornerstone Institute, which will address the biggest topics we face today.
  • The group also embraces the Bible, and focuses on four key things: Faith, Liberty, Community, and Life.
