Cain Camp Considering Legal Action Against Politico as More Details Are Released …Update: They May Want to Add the NYT to the Suit

We’re considering legal action.

The Cain Campaign is considering taking legal action against the Politico for its story on past sexual harassment claims against the popular conservative candidate. Also today —
The Washington Post reported:

A Herman Cain aide said Thursday that the Cain campaign is considering its legal options over the original Politico story, which revealed that the former head of the National Restaurant Association was accused of sexually harassing at least two women during his tenure in the 1990s.

“This is likely not over with Politico from a legal perspective,” a campaign official told the Post, stopping short of explaining what exactly he meant by taking legal action against the publication.

The Cain campaign has had an attorney advising it since Saturday on crisis management, which hasn’t gone particularly well for Cain since the story broke Sunday night.

On Thursday night, Politico reported more details of the allegations against Cain, saying that the former NRA head made a “sexual overture to [one of the women] at one of the group’s events.”

Politico cited “multiple sources independently familiar with the matter” and said the woman in question was “livid” and reported the incident that night to an NRA board member. She left the trade group soon afterwards, the publication reported, Meanwhile, Cain’s camp continued to hit back strongly at the allegations as it headed into the sixth day of the crisis, which threatens his upstart Republican presidential candidacy.

It also pointed, at least partly, to the Perry campaign as a source of the leak. While Cain’s chief of staff Mark Block suggested in a Fox interview Thursday that he no longer blames a Perry staffer for the leak, Cain insists that Anderson is still to blame.

UPDATE: The Cain Campaign may want to add The New York Times to the suit.

    Stupid is as stupid does. He doesn’t dispute the fact that charges were brought, he refuses to allow the details of it all to come forward. Can we attack the messenger and try to distract from the facts(much like Obama)? Yes We Cain!

    So, correct me if I’m wrong, but then he lied to Anderson, who has no reason to leak this considering he’s been a confidant to so many people and would not want to hurt his name and has said that Politico can tell if he was the source, about this and that lady lied about this, along with a few other people? Makes perfect sense.

    National Restaurant Association chairman during Cain’s tenure: ‘It’s a hatchet job’

  • K~Bob

    We need to remember that in a courtroom, the defense is always given everything the prosecution knows about the case.

    So far Politico has only run the innuendo and smear, and no one has given Cain any idea what information they have, while Cain is forced to rely on personal memory of an event from many years ago, that he recused himself from so other people could handle the legal aspects and the inquiry, and which resulted in a sealed agreement that he hasn’t seen.

  • Patty

    And furthermore, Cain has explained himself. There was no settlement but severance pay.

    No lawsuits filed. Cain has explained it more than enough for me but so news week, whatever.

    Conference tomorrow, why, because he could stop this, this has gone on too, long. And the lawyer and woman who is looking for whatever, maybe pay backs from Obama team, are two of the slickest people. They are making this a week long or possibly, hoping for the second black president to bow out.

    Whatever, this is like the NRA said, hatchet job. And if we ever got the real truth, I would bet Obama’s thugs are involved.

  • Dave-O

    #6 K- Bob – you are spot on.

    A fundamental right of American justice is the ability to confront your accusers. If all Politico can do is to smear Cain from “anonymous” sources – they might as well simply put on the white robes and pillow cases and be done with it. They are lynching a black man based on rumors, smears, and innuendo. If there is truth to what they are saying, let the truth come out and have people stand behind their charges – if not, they should just STHU.

  • SnowSoul

    What y’all are saying may well be true. Wanna know one of the problems? There’s that document that says no one can speak about it. There’s Mark Block who says they won’t allow it to be spoken of. Two women get a year’s severance and no one speaks of it. We get people saying about the worst, a radio host saying Cain spoke inappropriately to his female hosts and we have Cain who won’t let the details of it all be released?

    Remind me: why does Cain deserve the benefit of the doubt when he’s doing everything in his power to hide it?

  • Patty


    But slow news week, they need to stomp on the man, who is guilty of nothing. Why because the media has no one else to stomp in the dirt. There’s always Obama but that will never happen.

  • Tricia

    Cain doesn’t know when to quit. He’s keeping it & worry alive.

    Now the Cain camp said they might sue Politico. For what? Cain himself confirmed the story as true.

    Also, I believe the whole story should come out now. I believe Cain will not win, he will only split the conservative vote and give us Romney. Also, I do not want to sit through these primaries waiting for that shoe to drop, wondering, wondering if it will. What if it comes out after a few primaries where another could have won them?

    But what if Cain does win the GOP nomination? I worry if it doesn’t come out now and Cain wins, this will come back in the General. I’d rather have it now in the friendly fire path of supporters of Republicans than in the bombing of the General with Obama, Independents and Democrats.

    One of the women whose apt the interviewer went to, was full of Obama love. Said Obama pictures and memorabilia everywhere and confirmed she was a Democrat.

    And isn’t it quite the coincidence that Mr. Cain made sure he stressed that when he told Anderson, they were in a room alone together, just those two and no one else? How convenient…can’t be proved he told him and can’t be disproved.

  • Patty

    NRA Statement:

    Fassler’s memories of Cain, he said, were all positive. He called the GOP front-runner a smart businessman, and said that even 15 years ago, the Georgia pizza mogul had a grasp of government policy and routine that was stronger than most of his peers.

    “Herman, during those days, did a very good job of getting our message heard on the Hill,” Fassler said.

    “He’s a very expressive communicator, very affable. People enjoy listening to his speeches. He’s very entertaining, and in my mind a very factual-oriented person.”

    if he sues them, then the women could testify at the new hearing to prove it isn’t libel.
    politico would have the right as a defendant to call them as witnesses and compel them to reveal the truth.

  • American Woman

    Too many people on the board are playing into Progressive hands. Politico brokr this story, so do not doubt that the Progs and the RINOs have both added fuel to the fire.

    Some of you also need to get a grip. This incident happened in the 1990s and from what has been said did not involve actual sexual relations. I think Cain deserves better than you people are giving him. Shame on you. They are doing to Cain what they did to Palin. Shame, shame, shame on you.

    Here is the Title of this article:
    Hey, Herman, The Sausage Goes on The Pizza!

    Cain is treated like he’s expected to be an expert in responding to accusations. Do you know why I believe Cain? Because he’s obviously not refined in responding to this, which means he hasn’t been going over an alibi since the so called indiscretion. My buddy Bill Whittle would point to Bill Clinton who knew how to handle this because he had been rehearsing how to deal with what he was guilty of.

    Because of things like this, Bill Clinton was seen as the 1st black president. Hey Herman! This could turn out to be a positive for you! You might be seen as authentically black now!

    Herman Cain is now getting thrown under the bus like Sarah Palin. People don’t want to be seen as someone who could vote for a person who lacks the intellectual caliber, and the snooty, elitist establishment, refinement that they expect in a president. Jesus seemed to lack that criteria too. Look what happened to Him.

    People’s egos are so bloated with a fragile membrane that they either display grotesque denial to stand by the guilty and lie and refuse to admit they’re wrong, or at the first sign of disapproval of someone they know they leave ‘em to the wolves, or they shoot the wounded out right.

    Sarah Palin is all too familiar with this syndrome. I saw this coming for Herman Cain. I still like Sarah Palin and proudly say that she’s a woman who reflects a lot of my principles. I say the same for Herman Cain. I marvel at lot of y’all who claim you’re not influenced by the media, yet you’re hopin’ like pop corn to the very tune that the media is playing, and ready to hold a man guilty until proven guilty.

    Posted earlier on another thread and I do believe this is a witch hunt and those who are doing this have and axe to grind with the TEA PARTY. And if I were the TEA PARTY, I would do the same thing that happen in the elections of ’10, blow it away with Cain. Truly, those who are spinning this have no idea what matters to Americans. And all their talk about what Cain should or shouldn’t to is coming from POLITICS called Washington style. And Cain is not a Washington Puppet.

    Thank you, tip hat! And racism is over? We won’t let the left do this again. They say they like blacks but deep down, maybe, but conservative ones, NO WAY! Shameful

    Let me ask this racist question! Would by chance the lady or ladies be Black?

    I think Cain deserves better than you people are giving him. Shame on you. They are doing to Cain what they did to Palin. Shame, shame, shame on you.

    This is why, unlike others, I’m pretty much letting this whole thing play out.

    The facts will come out soon enough.

  • progressoverpeace

    Cain should just give Politico the finger.

  • Patty

    In October 2011, Politico reported that two female employees had complained about inappropriate behavior by Cain during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association. The women reportedly accepted financial settlements from the association which barred them from discussing their allegations further.[79] Cain’s campaign initially refused comment,[80] but subsequently acknowledged that the accusations had been made.[81] Cain strongly denied any impropriety, stating: “I have never sexually harassed anyone and those accusations are totally false.” He denied being aware of any financial settlement to the accusers, and described the allegations as a “witch hunt”.[82][83] In an interview with Greta van Susteren, Cain further said that the allegations had been investigated and found baseless. He recalled that one of the specific allegations was making a gesture indicating his wife’s height by holding his palm flat, which one of the accusers found objectionable.[84]

    Wow, wikipedia sure works fast. What party are they affiliated with?

    And again the words SETTLEMENT in that case a gag order…what was it? If severance pay there would not be a settlement.

  • Patty
  • a former dem

    I’m not sure or how they can even sue Politico. All that does is keep the story alive. Did he misstep on this whole issue? Yes. Stop blaming everyone, I don’t believe Cain has sexual assaulted anyone, as for “harassed”, well, that’s such a vague area, especially with no detail of anything. There’s nothing out there yet to say, this was bad, this was not bad, there is nothing there. And stop with the blaming Perry, or Romney.

    I’m glad this all came out now and not the general.

    At least Cain is now confronting this more now, once the statement is released, have a presser, answer all questions, and move on.

    I’m not in the Cain camp, mainly because I don’t know if he can beat the Messaih, and that to me is more important than anything for next november, but if he’s the nominee, heck yea, I’ll vote for him.

    His initial misteps do lead me to think he’s not ready, but I’m keeping an open mind, no more blaming other campaigns, confront this head on, have a presser, and then move on.

    Honestly, there are so many bigger major issues out there.

  • Pingback: Tea Party Courier » Cain Camp Considering Legal Action Against Politico as More Details Are Released()

  • Exactly right, Blacque Jacques. At this point, the entire mess is bereft of facts, making it impossible for commentators to stake out any sort of accurate position on Cain’s culpability, or lack thereof.

    The only legitimate criticism at present is that aimed at the Cain team for failing to get ahead of this. They haven’t been able to stay on the same page, and they’re adding to the PR nightmare.

  • donh

    #2 THAT is a SUPERB Cain commercial .,….While I listened to the start of the official Cain commercial I was pulling up Clarence Thomas to post here as an example of the only thing Cain needs to run as a commercial . No sooner had I played this you tube clip… …. the same audio came through the Cain commercial. RINOS are acting like a high tech lynch mob for uppity blacks. Cain has to sue because the NAACP will not lift a finger to condemn racial stereotypes of the black rapist when its done to conservative blacks. They only protect convicted rapists like Willie Horton.

  • Tricia

    Patty, that’s disingenous to start your post with NRA statement. It was one guy in the NRA and there’s another:

    Once settled into the powerful trade association’s 17th Street NW offices, however, Cain developed a different reputation. Colleagues recall that he spent the organization’s money liberally, commissioning new information technology and phone systems and spending nearly double what had been budgeted to renovate an auditorium.

    “He did not have the temperament to be an association executive,” said William Fisher, Cain’s predecessor at the organization. “He did not like to have to go to a board of directors to get authorization to do certain things. He did not like criticism from the state associations.”

    It was during this period that Cain established himself as a Washington figure, meeting with the city’s power brokers and becoming a regular presence in the halls of Congress.

    you are too kind to ask if your question is racist.

    I think we are too PC, when the left says such horrible things and the are black, PROFESSOR calling Cain a crackhead, Bellefonte calls Cain ignorant.

    Who needs a lesson on what racism is are the blacks themselves. If I offend the Blacks here sorry, but many here have Common Sense and there lies the problem for the liberals.

    I loved Supreme Court Clarence Thomas in his hearing read the riot act to everyone there.

    Maybe Cain heard (or was advised by) Trump.

    Yesterday he said in an interview (w/ Greta?) that Cain should sue and *sue big* if something untrue is said about him.

    This could get interesting. (Not that I want it to drag on).

  • retire05

    #31, here’s one you can add to your list:

    former Bill Clinton supporter in 1996.

    What? Oh, you didn’t know that Cain was once a Democrat after all of you have beaten up on Rick Perry because he switched parties in 1989?

    Don’t believe me? Try the Washington Times (not to be compared to the far left Washington Post) for the article in the last few days and a Cain campaigner comment on it.

  • Patty

    Well, seems all the pundits have had their say. One in particular is rather funny and it was answered by Cain.

    They said his campaign wasn’t quick enough and knew of this 10 days prior. But Cain came back and said that what do you do with an Anonymous person.

    Well, this may have been just a hit and run sort of thing. But doubtful and seems that NRA will be called in to testify if a lawsuit in sues.

    Very sad to have a presidential Candidate so like be tied up in legal matters. This would end his campaign or if not take from us a very strong and deviant man whose only fault is to get rid of Obama.

    And in that respect, I will say it once again, Axelrod and Plouffe are behind this.

    They never believe Cain would come so far and right after this broke about harassment thing, the first thing that was reported is that Obama Campaign was ready for Romney in the debates.

  • retire05

    mcc, if Cain wants to prove his claims of the accusations being determined to be “baseless” let him request the NRA documents be released with the women’s name redacted. How simple is that?

    Oh, yeah, the Marlboro Man says that Cain is not going to make that request, yet Cain is demanding others prove their claims against him while he expects a pass when he is claiming on Greta that the woman in question was a bad employee.

    Yes, Patty, I knew Reagan was a Dem before he switched parties. But you have remained silent while your buddies smear Rick Perry because he was a Democrat and never made a peep. Now we find out that Cain was a big Dem and crickets from your buddies.

    This blog has become a crime. Jim Hoft, who tries to do his best to keep us informed, is smeared and slandered on his own damn blog he pays for. I don’t know why he doesn’t boot the bunch of cretins off his site if all they can do is bash him. Jim Hoft is the only blogger I know that takes such abuse and still lets those mental midgets post on his blog. He’s a better person than they are.

    Now, maybe you can tell me why Cain won’t request the release of the NRA documents, with the women’s names redacted, that would back up the claims Cain has made? Or is it only anyone who is not in the Cain Camp that has to prove their allegations?

  • DaMav

    Thanks to PJM we now know that Cain traveled in a taxi. And other than the taxi part, that part of the devastating PJM expose is apparently true. Hard to imagine him standing up to these kinds of bombshells for long.

    I admire you. Let’s keep it that way. I have decided Mr Block earned his name. It might be time to quit letting Mark be Mark. I laughed at the ad but thought going on FOX and naming the Perry campaign was beyond dumb. Perry committed Repub suicide when he did not realize that immigration trumps abortion. They may mouth ‘jobs, economy, balanced budget, etc’ but rake it all away and you will find immigration. He flunked the Slick Willie mouthing test. As much as I detest Politico, they receive gallons of ink from DEMS/MSM. Gallons. Stop this madness and put it to bed.

    I had a dear person in my life whose opinions met gold to me. And things for me would be so different had this person been around at the time of my accident.

    Suing others is wicked. But suing for the right reason is wonderful. When a person is suing for money it is fraud. What was behind these charges and when Cain was asked about the second woman, I did sense something odd about is change in manner. Always, have wondered about that. And yes, I still like Cain and until more details come out, I still will.

    If, people are too naive and don’t understand the way the law works they don’t even think of suing another person. These women who have alleged this misconduct may have been just doing it because they knew they could and knew that NRA wouldn’t go to court and so, they didn’t sue, they settled and in a settlement there was a gag order? That is something that does concern me.

    And Cain said severance for one woman but did both get one. And the fact that there are two. Did the both of them connive together.

    Why not let the libs titillate themselves with this nonsense? People are not going to flock to Obama because his opponent might possibly have allegedly perhaps have maybe …

    Perry is the governor of one state. And the laws there are different from other states.

    Seems if the people are happy with the way things are going they will continue to vote for their governor.

    Personally, I hope he stays there. If things are so hunky doorie then, why run. Was he crushed that Obama wouldn’t help him during the Wildfires? Whatever, I don’t care for him as a viable candidate. One day he will debate another day he will only debate in five or whatever.

    He needs to buck up and stop being so concern about his 3 mins to debate and talk. Because this nation is in serious trouble, here and abroad. We need a strong person who has clarity.

    If Perry, he better hurry because he is dragging in the Polls. Cain is still soaring. So, who ever OUR candidate is we better rally around that person. We can’t afford 4 more years of Obama.

    I like Herman Cain. I have not decided who I am going to vote for yet, but I do like Cain. Regardless of what FACTUAL INFO ever comes out vis a vis the NATL RESTAURANT ASSOCIATION deal, Cain has not been charged with NOR accused of anything. He has not been fined, convicted nor did he financially settle any claim. NO MATTER WHAT IS REVEALED, Cain has been SLIMED.

    Rightnow, my ONLY concern as to CAIN’S handling of this situation, is CAIN’S choice and continued use of MARK BLOCK. Block is a slime ball. We know him here in Wisconsin. Furthermore, anyone with 2 eyes and a brain, can see BLOCK is enjoying the modicum of FAME this has brought him. He is a hack and professional…..HE IS NOT.

    High tech lynching takes all kinds. It takes liars and believers of lies. It also takes weak kneed people that run at the first sign of trouble. It also takes weasels that use accusations of this sort to “pimp” their own candidate. I have no idea if I am going to vote for Cain, but I will never sit still for the garbage that is hanging over Cain’s head. If this is Perry’s doing, I hope he falls flat on his face, if it’s Romney, well I could easily believe it, he is such a weasel.

    According to the indictments filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles and unsealed today, investigators have identified several false document manufacturing networks in the MacArthur Park section of Los Angeles and elsewhere. One of the main targets of the investigation is Alejandro Morales Serrano, who allegedly manufactures raw materials that are then used to manufacture false documents on a large scale from California and other states, including Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Illinois, and Michigan. The false documents generated by the rings included United States Permanent Resident cards, Social Security cards, Mexican Consular Identification cards, and driver’s licenses. The indictment alleges the Serrano and other co-conspirators support the manufacture of false driver’s licenses for approximately 40 of the 50 states and within Mexico.

    Andrea Shea King, Radio Patriot, shares story that connects the dots to Carl Rove:

    She introduces the story with the words: “A Texan connects the dots to… Karl Rove”, and begins it this way:

    A short while ago, I received this email, sent to me from another. The original email, written by Donna Garner, which I am posting below, checks out. I contact Donna Garner who confirmed that she did indeed write the following. I believe it’s worth your read… Do you trust Karl Rove???

    “Cast of Characters in the Lynching of Herman Cain”

    By Donna Garner

    Chris Wilson of Wilson Research Strategies has said publicly that while he was working for Herman Cain at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) in the late 1990′s that he personally saw Cain sexually harass a woman at a restaurant in Virginia although Wilson has not said exactly what he believes constituted his claim of “harassment.”


    Chris Wilson was the Executive Director of the Republican Party of Texas under then-governor George W. Bush. Chris Wilson worked very closely with Karl Rove. Rove was known to us in Texas as the “master of dirty political tricks. ” I suspect that Rove taught Chris Wilson the art of deception.


    Karl Rove has been accused of being the source behind countless dirty tricks, whisper campaigns, smear tactics, and character assassinations.

    I have dealt personally with Karl Rove. I well remember in 1997 when we classroom teachers in Texas had written our own state curriculum standards document (Texas Alternative Document) and were gaining wide support in the national press because no classroom teachers (before or since) had ever written their own standards document. We classroom teachers did not believe the standards being steamrolled by the Texas Education Agency and the Governor’s office were good for Texas students.

    In the spring of 1997, Karl Rove was brought in by Gov. George W. Bush’s staff to quiet down the controversy because Bush was on his way to the White House and was being touted as the “education President.” Karl Rove believed that Bush could not afford any bad publicity, and evidently Rove’s task was “to make it go away.”

    Suddenly those State Board of Education (SBOE) members who had supported our TAD document began getting phone calls from their largest campaign contributors threatening to withdraw their support unless they backed the Governor’s document.

    One of our main SBOE supporters who made his living as a healthcare provider suddenly had his office visited by both state and federal auditing agencies simultaneously. They managed to tie up his total attention for weeks during the exact time that the SBOE members needed to be focusing their attention on the all-consuming work of adopting new curriculum standards for the state of Texas. The auditors found nothing illegal.

    At one particular SBOE meeting, several of the SBOE members were told by the hotel management that their room assignments had suddenly been changed. The next day the information they had exchanged in a highly confidential phone call was made known publicly and neither of them had been the ones to leak it.

    Back to the Herman Cain “lynching” –


    Chris Wilson was hired by Mike Toomey to do Gov. Rick Perry’s polling. Mike Toomey was Gov. Perry’s chief of staff who was behind the HPV Merck/Gardasil scandal. Mike Toomey turned out to be a lobbyist for Merck.


    In 1995 Chris Wilson left the Republican Party of Texas (and Karl Rove) and went to work for pollster Tony Fabrizio.


    Because Gov. Perry’s Presidential campaign was losing steam, several weeks ago (10.24.11) his team decided to hire Curt Anderson, Tony Fabrizio, et al. “Coincidentally,” it appears that Politico began working on its 10.30.11 sexual harassment hit piece against Herman Cain at about that very same time.


    Who is Curt Anderson? Herman Cain told Forbes that he recalled personally telling Curt Anderson in 2003 about the sexual harassment charges at the NRA but that they were baseless. Cain felt Curt Anderson as a pollster for the NRA needed to know about the allegations.


    Another big coincidence? Curt Anderson was the political director at the Republican National Committee under Haley Barbour. Haley Barbour was a member of the ad team for Mitt Romney’s campaign in 2007/2008.

    On 11.2.11 two days after the Politico story broke on 10.30.11, Haley Barbour went on nationwide TV and began to pressure Cain to get the NRA to release its confidentiality agreement, thus giving the “woman” a chance to grab the national microphone.


    I am not the brightest bulb in the lamp, but I can connect the dots. So can most thinking Americans.

    The Republican candidates are in a heated campaign leading up to the primaries. Out of nowhere has stepped Herman Cain as the frontrunner. He is not an “establishment” sort of guy.

    Chris Wilson, the “witness” (Karl Rove’s understudy, recommended to Rick Perry by unscrupulous Mike Toomey) is now working with Curt Anderson (newly hired by Perry) and Tony Fabrizio (newly hired by Perry). Fabrizio is connected to Haley Barbour (worked on Mitt Romney’s campaign in 2007/2008). Barbour is the one who is trying to pressure the Cain campaign to release the “woman accuser” so that the Politico story will grow legs and eventually “lynch” Herman Cain.

    thanks, a bit more of much more here..

    [With the pay-to-play Solyndra scandal rocking the White House, presidential hopeful Rick Perry is embroiled in a mountain of crony capitalism controversy all his own. During the September 12 GOP presidential debate, Michelle Bachmann exposed the money trail behind Perry’s Executive Order mandating all 6th grade girls in Texas receive the Gardasil HPV vaccine made by the drug company, Merck, the employer of Perry’s former Chief of Staff, Mike Toomey, at the time. Merck funneled money to Perry, initially $5,000, but eventually adding up to the tidy sum of closer to $400,000, sparking outrage across Texas and now the nation.

    Toomey’s just the tip of the ice berg.


    Rick Perry’s crony capitalism wasn’t just a fleeting lapse of judgment pertaining to the HPV scandal, it’s a consistent pattern of revolving door, pay-to-play crony capitalism that Americans detest and can ill afford.]

    Iran is on the verge of getting the Bomb. It is time for President Barack Obama to act

    When Mr Obama was handed unequivocal evidence in the autumn of 2009 that Iran was building a second nuclear enrichment facility at Qom, he preferred to take a soft approach. The inevitable new round of sanctions was implemented, but no meaningful action was taken to curtail Iran’s obsession with developing nuclear weapons.

    As we know from the 1930s, appeasement achieves little when it comes to confronting a determined foe for whom the normal laws of international conduct do not apply. And next week, the full extent of Iran’s duplicity will be laid bare, with the publication of the latest International Atomic Energy Agency report on its nuclear ambitions.

    Unlike previous IAEA reports, this one will demonstrate unequivocally that Iran is well on the way to acquiring nuclear weapons. It will show that the country is seeking to engineer and test components that are only used in the production of nuclear weapons, and that this illegal activity is taking place at sites that would not even exist if Iran was in compliance with its international treaty obligations.

    Why, for example, are Iranian scientists experimenting with triggers that are only used for detonating nuclear weapons? Why are Iranian technicians devoting so much energy to developing a ballistic missile warhead that can carry a nuclear warhead? And why have they designed simulation programmes whose sole purpose is to test nuclear weapons systems?

    The inescapable conclusion is that, for all Tehran’s protestations that its nuclear intentions are entirely peaceful, the ayatollahs are close to achieving their long-held ambition of joining the exclusive club of nuclear-armed powers. And rather than trying to ignore the apocalyptic implications, Mr Obama may find himself obliged to do something rather more robust than merely freezing the bank accounts of senior Iranian officials.

  • Molon Labe

    If there are any charges against Cain then let the courts settle them. Since there were no suits what are we talking about? Clinton’s perjury didn’t matter to the MSM; nor Obama’s questionable record or his bogus church nor his bogus birth certificate. Why should we care what double standards they employ? What’s good for the dhimmies is good enough for me.

    Now rather than be distracted by unidentified sources, how about the real crimes that Obama and his posse are committing every day?

    Why isn’t Mr. Hoff focusing on them? Or is he still auditioning for a post with the Perry/Romney administration? Or does he just covet David Brooks slot?

    I know they have been wanting the heads of America. And I do realize they have been trying to get a bomb. But lately, Bolton has been stressing that it will eventually happen. and then today this.

    Cyber attacks on our technology by China and eventually we will see them become the most powerful in the world. These two things are quite probable and very dangerous. And Obama needs to stop dilly dallying and get some real intelligent people to stop our secrets and technology in the hands of enemies.

    On Iran, he has been in denial. They are a threat and they will use the bomb.

    Will White America Give Black America A “Do Over”?

    “In effect, blacks voted at around 96% to reenter a form of slavery by electing the first black president.”

    O.K….I will get right to the point. I’m black; I’m conservative and I’m ashamed to have Barack Obama as President of the United States. There. I realize that this statement not only puts me off the plantation for a lot of blacks I’m sure they would like to see me out of the country if not worse. That’s o.k.….I’ve accepted the fact that most blacks see me as a traitor and not down with the struggle. I, however, see myself as a proponent of the teachings of the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in judging people not by their color but by the content of their character and boy….Obama has shown a lot of bad content in his character.

    I won’t restate why I dislike President Obama so much; I refer you to another BQI article (I Don’t Like President Obama and Americans Should Follow My Lead ) where I spent considerable efforts in laying out the case for why more Americans, black and white, should be more like me in my level of dislike for the President. In this article I want to address the issue of whether blacks, in putting Obama into the Presidency, has squandered any future chances of convincing white America to ever support another black for president.

    In 2008 blacks and a significant number of whites flocked to the polls to elected Barack Obama. Whites and some blacks were fooled into casting their vote for a man they thought would bring bipartisanship, strong leadership and healing to America. Instead Barack Obama has sought to implement his covert plan to transform America from a capitalist to a European styled social democracy. This was not what America voted for in 2008. The end result for America’s fool heartedness is continued high unemployment, high taxes, social class warfare, fiscal irresponsibility in government and much more all leading to the nation’s fundamental transformation.

    As a black I am embarrassed that blacks played a major role in placing a Socialist, perhaps even Marxist, into the White House. Think about the irony of it all, after 150 years of slavery only to use the greatness of the Nation’s Constitution as a basis for achieving freedom and other rights that followed blacks, with our first opportunity to place a black in the presidency, we select a marxist / socialist. In 2008 blacks placed a man in the oval office who embraces an ideology and who advocated and passed legislation and policies that reduced the freedoms and liberty of all Americans, black and white, through big government and central planning. In effect, blacks voted at around 96% to reenter a form of slavery by electing the first black president.

    As a result of all of the havoc Obama has heaped on the country many Independents and moderate Democrats are now flabbergasted, with perhaps a bit of guilt, for unleashing the Obama wrath on the country. I’m certain that these white Independents and moderate Democrats are very fearful of repeating this mistake, ergo….could they find it in their hearts to support Herman Cain or any other black for president. I believe, thank God, that these great Americans will give black America a “do over”.

  • Patty

    Today Herman Cain, despite the onslaught to derail him by both his campaign opponents, the GOP establishment and the liberal mainstream media, is headed on a tear towards winning the GOP nomination for president. Unlike our current debacle with Obama, should Cain win the nomination and then the presidency, I know that he will more than make amends for the damage inflicted by Obama on the country. This very real prospect is what keeps liberals up at night; a conservative black president implementing conservative principles that will restore America in a manner that benefits all Americans.

    Today there is much debate in the liberal mainstream media about how white conservatives are supporting Cain in an attempt to offset the perception of them as racist. This viewpoint is shared by so called black leaders, both congressional and academic elites. These are the very people who said that whites flocked to Obama because of the greatness that they saw in him not because of his skin color. In the liberal’s world how could color play a role in their perception of Obama’s fitness to be president? They are liberal and therefore endowed from birth with open mindedness and inclusiveness. We conservatives know that just the opposite is true. Liberals, especially the elites, are perhaps the most race conscious people on planet earth. Not a day goes by without race being an issue in the liberal media world of MSNBC, CBS, NBC et al; why, because there must be a never ending effort by these elites to hide their real values, opinions and perceptions which are racism, homophobia and sexism.

    Conservatives value the individual regardless of their make-up. We believe that everyone should have the freedom to be all that they can be. Sometimes this ends in success in other instances less than success. In the latter case, where help is needed on a temporary basis, conservatives believe that individuals and organizations, not government, should offer this assistance and where this is not possible then government plays a small role.

    Liberals on the other hand value the idea of the individual, seeing all people as being entitled to a perfect life. They believe that the individual should have all of their needs met and that no failure or lacking should ever exist in an individual’s life. In order to achieve this utopia liberals believe that the government has a specific responsibility to redistribute wealth in order to achieve this objective.

    For the past three years liberals have had their way, in Congress and the White House, to achieve their utopian society. They have failed. Now a true conservative wants possession of the White House to be matched with a conservative controlled House and Senate. Should white America decide to give blacks a “do over” I know that having Herman Cain and a conservative controlled Congress will provide America with a stark ideological contrast to the debacle arising from the 2008 election. With the inevitable success that Herman Cain and the conservative Congress will have, blacks will be able to make amends for their tragic decision in 2008 and the havoc reeked on the nation by President Obama. Blacks owe it to the country to correct their poor judgment putting Obama into the presidency. I hope we make good on the “do over”.

  • Patty

    And that just about says it all.

  • Patty

    If we have confidence in America will should believe in the article I just posted. I maybe true that Blacks really are rather ashamed of Obama. He hasn’t been a shining example of what Blacks believe in. And it has been a long way for the blacks to come and each day they grow stronger and more successful and don’t believe what you hear.

    They are realizing more each day that it takes courage and strength to overcome and to steal the words for the great Martin L. King. Cain said if he could have dinner with anyone it would be King.

    Cain is a wonderful example of a Black man and so completely sad that things have taken such a turn for him. But I think the Whites will give a Black man another chance here too.

    First of all,
    everything Tricia said.

  • Gary

    Now Patty et al, you’re really laying it on thick.

    First, don’t compare Herman Cain to Sarah Palin. The difference is Cain acknowledges something happened and the result of that something was “severance packages”. Now who gets so high up in the company that they’re rubbing elbows with the president and then quits for a “five-figure settlement” over nothing? Nobody would. Those five figures would be less than a year’s pay. And then the person has to strike that job off the resume because they won’t be getting a reference. So something more had to have happened after “you’re the same height as my wife” and “come up to my suite”.

    Now as for Sarah Palin, they have been digging on her for three years and have yet to find the dirt even with 24,000 of her emails. The closest thingt they had to scandal was the firing of a state trooper. And unlike Herman Cain’s story, nobody bought the guy off. He was fired and it played out in the courts where the firing was found to be justified and Sarah Palin was exonerated of any wrongdoing.

    No comparison there.

  • Gary


    Don’t compare Cain to Reagan.

    Cain voted for Clinton. That’s that.

    Yes Reagan was a Democrat before he was a Repulbican, but he was a very conservative Democrat. In 1952 and again 1956, he endorsed Eisenhower for president both times while he was still a Democrat! That’s a guy who should switch parties.

    Cain voted for Clinton in 1992 then made his famous criticism of Clinton shortly thereafter. Doesn’t sound like he struggled with his political identity like Reagan did. He just switched sides (as did Perry who worked for Gore and later voted for Clinton and praised Hillarycare just before switching parties).

    Now can you name one Republican presidential candidate that Cain or Perry endorsed before they switched parties?

    Cue the crickets.

    Stop making bad comparisons.

  • Gary

    Quit playing the race card.

    You “so-called conservatives” have been whining for the past three years that we can’t criticize Obama without being called racist.

    Now at your very earliest opportunity, you leap on the chance to cry racism because a guy who paid hush money to at least two different women is suffering the indignity of having his past deeds exposed (while the details have yet even to come out!).

    Was it racist when they were trying to pay women to come forward and say they’d had sex with Rick Perry?

    Now who’s sounding like a liberal?
    Stop with the race business. It’s politics.
    If you think Cain can’t take the heat, why are so ardently supportive of him for president.

    I’d rather have a president who can take it and give it back, and never cry victim with the racially-loaded term “lyinching”.

    What a surprise. Jim linked to Ace, the new Little Green Footballs.

  • He doesn’t dispute the fact that charges were brought, he refuses to allow the details of it all to come forward.

    I’m amazed at those ready to indict Cain without anything but an anonymous source making anonymous accusations about the nebulous “sexual harassment” claims by anonymous women.

    Cain was NOT a signer to the NDA. How can he refuse to allow details when the source, the accuser and the details are all anonymous.

    Tell me: what was the exact act(s) Cain is accused of – don’t answer with the nebulous “sexual harassment – give me the exact actions, words, etc.? When? To whom? How? Where?

    There are sexual innuendos in every work place where you have men and women.
    “making someone feel uncomfortable” is not a crime.

    At least hear the accusations (and no, a written statement crafted by a lawyer won’t do it) and the response before you accept them as truth.

    “Ace went after Pam Geller after she exposed Perry’s muslim curriculum for Texas Public schools”

    Geller’s Smear Campaign against Gov. Perry has been DEBUNKED by many conservative bloggers.

    Geller supported Sarah Palin and wanted her to run in 2012 and started a scorched earth smear campaign against Gov. Perry. Now Geller is a Herman Cain supporter so her smear campaign will continue.

    David Stein has written extensively about it and HE READ THE CURRICULUM AND SPOKE TO THE AUTHOR.

    “August 10:’s Justin Elliott ran a piece titled “Rick Perry: The Pro-Sharia Candidate?” Note the clever question mark. Elliott insinuated that Perry’s involvement with the Muslim Histories and Culture Project (MHCP), in association with the Aga Khan Foundation (which represents Ismaili Muslims), might become a problem for the governor among the “anti-Sharia crowd.”

    August 15: Pam Geller takes the bait. Based on no evidence except the Salon piece, she breathlessly proclaimed that Rick Perry is using his “enormous power” to “feed children in Texas public schools” whitewashed, pro-Sharia materials (remember the underlined sentence – it’ll become relevant later on).

    August 16: After a little research, I located the MHCP lesson plan that is intended for use in Texas public schools, and I interviewed its author, a retired history teacher named Ronald Wiltse. Wiltse, a self-described Christian Zionist and staunch supporter of Israel, volunteered for the MHCP program, completed the training sessions, and submitted a lesson plan, which was accepted. Wiltse’s lesson plan was the only one on the MHCP website.

    Wiltse’s lesson plan is pro-West, pro-Israel, anti-Sharia, and it strongly highlights Muslim terror (even stressing the connection between Muslim terror and the Muslim religion). Wiltse told me that the training session for the program included no proselytizing or coercion to create a “pro-Islam” lesson plan…”

    Here is Cain’s problem:

    On Oct. 30, Politico came out with the hit piece on Cain (guess what, the left is going to go after ANY GOP candidate that gets high numbers in the polls, hence, the rock story)

    That night, Mark Block, Cain’s campaign manager called into the Geraldo Rivera Show on Fox. Block was vague, denied any truth at all to the story, and left the audience with more questions than answers. Prior to that, Cain had been questioned by a reporter about the story. Cain’s response to the reporter was “Have you ever been accused of sexual harassment?” Not exactly a good answer.

    The next moring (Monday) Cain was on Fox and denied the allegations. He said that he had been accused of wrong doing, but he didn’t know what the outcome of those allegations were. But that afternoon, Cain interviewed with Greta Van Sustern, whose husband is now in the Cain camp and who is a vicious tort lawyer, and his story did a total 180. He not only knew who one woman was, but claims to know what he said to her that could have been misconstrued, and knew that she was paid a settlement that was like “severence pay” that amounted to 3, perhaps 2, months salary. He denied the accusations were true. So Cain went from not knowing anything about it (via Mark Block on Sunday night) to remembering a lot on Monday afternoon.

    Tuesday morning Cain admits, in an interview, that Politico had contacted Team Cain 10 days before the story ran, but Cain decided not to deal with it until AFTER the story ran. Like it or not, leading from behind doesn’t work for Republicans, at least, not in the press. By Tuesday, the story was gaining legs. It was reported that the woman had been paid not 3, not 2 months salary, but an entire year’s salary. Basically, it was hush money. Cain had also impuned the woman’s character on Greta’s show saying the woman was a bad employee. On Tuesday, her lawyer said she wanted to be released from the confidentiality agreement so she could go public and protect her reputation that Cain had smeared.

    Great video,

    Seems the democrats have done a wonderful job for Americans. Blacks are given more and then have less. It is about time people step up and tell the truth. Great, once again, thanks.

    Obviously. And they’re both bipedal homo sapiens sapiens.

    The comparison I’m referring to is that Cain is being “Palined”.
    What’s happening to Cain, like it or not, is of his own making, and it was all handled behind closed doors until now.
    What has happened to Palin has been constant for three years and out in the open where all can see that they can’t make anything stick to her. There’s a reason for that.

    That’s why it is wrong to say that Cain’s getting Palin treatment. He isn’t.
    surely you knew that was what I meant.

    Forget it. It’s like nailing jello to the wall.
    They’ve picked Cain and therefore he can do no wrong.
    If an actual skeleton were found in Cain’s closet tomorrow, they’d accuse Perry or Romney of putting it there (or maybe Jim Hoft).
