The Forum Club of the Palm Beaches opens its season Sept. 8 with Dr. Ben Carson, who has sparked an independent presidential draft movement after speaking at last year’s National Prayer Breakfast where he tore into political correctness and Obamacare and warned of moral decay in America. Since then, there has been a widespread conservative move for the retired neurosurgeon and best-selling author to run for President of the United States. A Wall Street Journal op-ed piece titled “Ben Carson for President” said that Dr. Carson “may not be politically correct, but he’s closer to correct than we’ve heard in years.” There are websites offering car magnets, mugs, t-shirts, even baby body suits with the Carson for President 2016 theme.

You read the headlines daily: “U.S. Launches Another Round of Iraq Airstrikes,” “Syrian Rebels Call for U.S. Strikes as Jihadists Close In,” “Mideast Cease-Fire Talks Reconvene.” Peace in the Middle East? Dare we talk about it? Robert Wexler, President of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace in Washington, D.C., returns Oct. 27 to give us an appraisal of the ever-volatile situations throughout the Middle East. Wexler served seven terms in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Florida’s 19th district before retiring from Congress in 2010 to head the Center.
