Herman 'Cain,' but America Won't

Herman ‘Cain,’ but America Won’t

After the loss of his leader, the disciple Peter said, “I go fishing.” (John 21:3) Earlier today, that’s the way I felt as I slid into what should have been the comforting, swirling, water of my spa. Herman’s suspension of his campaign, was painful. I’ve been around politics for a long time, I know the seamy, ugly side of it. I know that truth doesn’t matter in politics – it’s about perception and who can tell a lie with conviction the most often. I love my spa, but today the water just didn’t feel as good.

It was then that I thought of Peter, in the midst of his sadness he sought to do that which had brought him solace in his past. He wanted to get away and to forget. He was hurt, and I’m certain he was feeling alone, wondering what the future held, wondering how people could be not just cruel, but so exuberantly anti-truth. It is here that I should make it expressly clear that I am in no way comparing Herman Cain’s decision, to Jesus at Calvary – I am comparing on a lesser level the feeling and emotions to someone being wronged.

Peter spent the night on the water fishing, but come morning he had nothing to show for his efforts, but that promptly changed when a stranger on the shore, told him to cast on the other side of the boat and there they would find fish. Interesting how things work, but as I stepped out of my spa and moved toward the shower, I thought of Joseph and Potiphar’s wife. (Genesis 39)

Potiphar was an Egyptian officer and captain of Pharaoh’s guard. But, Potiphar’s wife was not an honorable woman and having no regard for her husband, for Joseph, and certainly none for herself, she attempted to do what those like her do. You know how the rest of the account goes, Joseph resisted her advances, and as he fled from her, she was left with a piece of his garment in her hand, which she used to establish her complaint to Potiphar, that Joseph had attempted to have his way with her.

Joseph, who had been sold into slavery, and had worked his way up from obscurity, was now scorned and imprisoned. He had done nothing to deserve what had happened to him. In fact, his actions had been nothing short of honorable, but as the adage says, no good deed goes unpunished. But, the scriptures read, “But the Lord was with Joseph, and showed him mercy…and favor.” Genesis (39:21)

And that my friends was my thought process in the aftermath of Herman’s suspending his run. Herman had been betrayed by those he had helped. And like Potiphar’s wife, Ginger White not only betrayed the man who had showed her kindness, but she betrayed those around her as well.

White is a tragic figure, who has made a mess out of everything she has touched. She betrayed her business partner and alleged lesbian lover – she betrayed herself, and more importantly she betrayed America. But what would that matter to her? She has nothing to show for her life and it is wondered what her children think of her – after all, she was busy destroying their lives just as she was her own and those around her. But selfish, self-absorbed people don’t think about others, in truth they don’t think of themselves either or they would behave differently.

America needed Herman Cain. Typically when a politician promises to do something you take it w/ a grain of a salt. But, with Herman it was different, because he isn’t a politician. He isn’t part of the Washington good ol’ boy political establishment. He is one of us, who cares about the direction the country is heading. He spoke to us and for us and that made him a threat to the political heathens who hide behind the curtains – those who invisibly control the fortunes of candidates and decide who benefits from the collective spoils and bribes doled out to them.

Political corruption is rife in Washington and Herman was going to put an end to a lot of it. So nefarious creatures scraped the bottom of the trenches of hell for a something and someone they could use and they found both in the form of Sharon Bialek and Ginger White. They sold their souls for a few shekels of silver.

But in reality, what do they have? The answer is nothing. They will continue to sleep with whatever loser is foolish enough to become involved with them and wallow their way through the troughs that their kind slop at. They came from nothing, they have nothing, they return to nothing, worst off than when they were used. Both of them have served their purpose, they will now be kicked back into the trench they emerged from. What they are only just starting to realize is that they have sacrificed their children, and whatever else they may have had for a pittance. That’s it, there will be no calls and there will be no further celebrity.

However, Herman like Joseph has found favor with God, his family, and the people of America who love and admire him. His work is not done and no matter what the media or people put up to lie say, the only thing they have done is give us more reason to condemn them. The outpouring of love and well wishing for Herman and his family is unparalleled.

The media and party apparatchiks may think that they have won, but they have not. We know what has been done and we know why it was done. And, there is one more thing we know. Many of us know that the end has been prophesied, and that prophecy can be delayed but it cannot be denied. With that said, I for one believe that Herman Cain would have made the significant changes that would have slowed the free fall of our nation.

We as a nation are in trouble. We are beseeched on every side and the one man, I remain convinced, could have slowed it down, has stepped away. So the question, I would ask, is why do you think this has happened? If you answered, because the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy is underway, I would agree with you. We need only look to the Middle East to see it.

    My thoughts on what has happened is as follows: This series of events that has destroyed a good black man’s attempt to be President of the USA should send a sharp chill up the spine of every one of my black brothers and sisters, no matter their political persuasion. It was a media lynching of a great black American by a group of white men spearheaded by Axelrod and possibly Soros. It was an act of PURE racism in taking out the ONLY threat to Obama’s stranglehold on our black population. Herman was so big of a threat to Obama that our disgusting POTUS would have his minions stoop to the lowest level of inhumanity to marginalize Herman – and we let them get away with it. I assure you that the NEXT black man that ponders the thought of becoming a real President will think long and hard before he subjects his family to a media lynching. And for that, and that only we are a poorer nation. God bless you Herman!!

      mixitup: my thoughts are these…that the color is inconsequential…barry goldwater was a true conservative who was falsely smeared as a racist and a threat to overthrow the government…by the same groups responsible for tearing down Herman…Robert Bork was a true conservative that was torn down by the same groups that took down Herman…Ronald Reagan and Justice Thomas were savagely attacked by the same groups that took down Herman…they were able to prevail…paraphrasing Judge Bork it’s not a sad day for Herman but rather it was a sad day for our future…Reagan and Thomas had the same accusations as Herman…Goldwater and Bork were among other things branded racist…its not about color…its about what those men represented to those like obama…

    I too was so disappointed when Herman Cain suspended his campaign, I truly believed he was the one that could save us from going over the edge, I have looked over and am horrified by what I see. I would be OK with West as VP, but perhaps we should look at Jon Huntsman or Rick Santorum they are both supposed to be extremely conservative?
    I can’t believe we only have a choice between Newt and Mitt…say it isn’t so!

    It saddened me to hear that Mr. Cain was ending his campaign. It just proves to me why good civic-minded citizens don’t step up to the plate very often.

    I thank Herman Cain (the only person to receive a donation from me this time around) for his message and his perseverance – and hope he will realize the love and compassion of those from all 50 (not 57) states. Herman Cain would have been VERY good for America. However those in power were determined he would never have the opportunity to demonstrate that America would succeed with true leadership from Citizen Cain, president of the United States.

    By the way…has anyone besides me connected the dots – the Obama 2012 campaign office location is not Washington, rather he decided CHICAGO was the place to run for re-election. Axelrod/Emanuel/Jarrett all the in-crowd of the dirty Chicago political scene. No one can convince me this was a ‘coincidence’ – just more from the gang in Chicago. After all, they have the game plan down pat…this is how he has won every office he ran for…POISONOUS PERSONAL ATTACKS – attacks that once made destroy the individual…there is no recourse available. Where does Herman Cain go now to get his reputation back? For those of us who are smart enough to recognize a smear campaign, Mr. Cain, your reputation is untarnished!

    God bless you and your family – we were ‘hopeful’ you were going to bring about POSITIVE ‘change’ to Washington, but it appears it was not meant to be. Cherish your days with your loved ones and again, I thank you for putting yourself out there for the good of America!

    Excellent article!!

    May Cain, like Joseph, know that satan meant this for evil but our LORD will use it for good. What a wonderful illustration of comparing Cain and Joseph- both men were falsely acused. GOD raised up Joseph after this to save HIS people. May the LORD GOD use Cain in a mighty way.

    Herman Cain is still a force. Let’s not write his obituary just yet.

    Meanwhile, let’s not lose our focus.

    Mr. Obama’s engrossment with raising taxes on higher income earners has eclipsed the point of obsession and resembles a man either possessed by demons or one who is so completely bereft of economic sense that he should be examined by medical professionals for competance. His vindictiveness and pernicious attitude toward an unaffiliated group of successful people has been represented as a cure for what has beset the economy as well as the national deficit, so a common sense and simple representation of this apparent derangement is critical. Consider this:

    The two most wealthy men in the country are Warren Buffet and Bill Gates. Depending upon the source, it is reasonable to estimate their collective net worth at 100 billion dollars. If those two men were to DONATE their entire net worth toward repayment of the national debt it would decrease by six tenths of one percent. Mr. Obama and the media would like everyone to drink like mother’s milk the concept that all our problems would dissolve if those awful people in the virtual rich club he maintains exists would simplay pay “their fair share.”

    The top 1% of wage earners already pay nearly 40% of all taxes, so unless one possesses a room temperature IQ it must be apparent that a much bigger problem eists, and believe me one does.

    The national debt is not the hoo-doo-voo-doo item the media has always suggested it is, and I will put it into perspective. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was roughly 10 Trillion annually when President Bush took office and the national debt was approximately 6 Trillion. That is analagous to making $100,000 per year and having a $60,000 mortgage. Yes, there is debt, but is is without question a manageable debt.

    That ratio has remained in tact for most of the past generation, but elevated during the Bush Administration as a function of two things: the unexpected events of September 11, 2001, and the fact that the Bush Administration had to make up for 8 years of Mr. and Mrs. Clinton systematically neutering the military and its budget. Nonetheless, the debt remained “manageable.”

    In less than three years of Mr. Obama’s administration, the national debt is now commensurate with the GDP. In simple terms, it has more than doubled in three years to a point that the GDP AND national debt now rest at $15 Trillion each. When, not if, the income drops below the national debt, and it borders on that precipice as I type, the downward spiral becomes a vortex, a Bermuda Triangle, from which nothing can escape.

    More on that subject another time.

    In the interim, consider this: All of Wall Street was unable to raise between 800 Million and One Billion dollars for American Airlines during the most recent three months, and that venerable airline filed a reorganization plan under Chapter 11 late last week. Gates at major airports are actually huge assets that appear on the balance sheets of all major airlines, and American was willing to mortgage those valuable slots as well as re-mortgage their planes in order to bring about this financing and “The Street” said no. There wasn’t enough interest in that particular risk, for American has assets of roughly 22 Billion and liabilities of 29 Billion, and with that type of ratio, it was assumed the “vortex” would soon suck the company into utter darkness. Maybe yes, maybe no, although I’m betting on the latter.

    Regardless, companies leveraged like American Airlines have overcome steep odds before and stock market success is based upon one’s ability to gauge odd.

    Meanwhile, Solyndra received 535 MILLION from Mr. Obama and his Czars wihout so much as a revenue stream.

    All of these observations mean nothing unless Congress quits promising and spending more than you or I can promise or spend and still maintain ownership of our homes.

    A final thought: One of Mr. Obama’s apparatchiks, sometimes regarded as the Department of Labor, came out with surprisingly great news on unemployment last Friday. It claimed the U-3 measure of unemployment had magically dropped from over 9% to 8.6%, something which defies all mathematical laws of which I’m aware as well as, perhaps, some laws of physics. It turns out the greater measure of unemployment, known as U-6, increased by 315,000 people during the same period, which would indicate that unemployment actually worsened.

    That’s not a problem for Obama-Operatives. They simply “subtracted” the 315,000 who threw in the towel and quit looking for work as somehow REDUCING the number of unemployed, and the press ran with the news as naively as children getting let out of school for summer break.

    Stay tuned. More to follow.

    Mr. Cain’s treatment by the Obamanoid left wing media is to be abhorred. The accusers have had their 15 minutes of fame and the media has more than earned its 30 pieces of silver (commercial time). At least, Judas had enough humanity in him to throw his ill gotten gains back into the faces of those who paid him. My guess is that the Obamanoids, like the scribes and the Pharisees, won’t even look back. They’re already looking for their next victim.

    This is a sad time for all of us.

    • MrsJB December 5, 2011 at 5:13 pm #

      I doubt that any man involved in such large corporations can even let his wife know about every person he talked with or who he signed a book for. Lies mirror truth and only knowing true right from true ‘left’ allowes the seer to distinguish which is which. A good marriage includes deep trust. A false marriage looks good for a time because it builds a trust that one then uses to confuse while weaving in lies. I do know some facts about Mr. Newt (easier to spell his first name). He does have real marital trust issues from the past.

    Mychal: thank you! I too, thought of Joseph but, your reference to Peter was brilliant and the tears ran down my face as I thought of Peter and read your kind words about Mr. Cain. How sad that our “democratic process” has been brought so low that this kind of crap is considered the norm – just for attempting to become President – lives can be destroyed!
    I’m truly sorry for what happened to Mr. Cain. This man could have been a positive force in this country and it was taken away in the vilest of ways. To destroy a man’s character – to take away a lifetime of work, to slander in a manner that is almost indefensible is just tragic. Have we sunk so low?!?!

    I am deeply touched about Herman Cain’s decision to drop out of the GOP candidacy. We all know Cain is not guilty of the faithless, unworthy pursuits of our corrupt society. To those females who came forward to gain their chance in the limelight and receive ‘awards’ for their unproven comments and under-handed tactics, they will soon learn that what goes around comes around. God has His own way of dealing with corruptness.

    Just as Sarah Palin stepped down from being governor of Alaska in order to squelch the swirling false accusations constantly fired at her and her family, in order for the state of Alaska to get on with the business at hand, so it is likely that Herman Cain has done the same with his Presidential aspirations. And, just like Sarah Palin still remaining a political force within the conservative arena, it is my prayer that the same will hold true for Mr. Cain.

        Herman like Joseph has found favor with God, his family, and the people of America who love and admire him. When I read the first article I was thrilled and I was hooked. Just what we need, I thought. Someone with good sense and who knows how to get things done. He didn’t have any help. He pulled himself up and became a very successful man. As capable and intelligent as he is, he would have been perfect. “Someone who doesn’t have his hand out, doesn’t have a history for anything but success . . just what our country needs.” I wish him the best, I feel that this will not drag him down. He’s a get it done type of man. I hope he is around for a long time . . . I still think we need him, but can’t blame him for dropping out once the “Bimbo Patrol” was released. And what do the bimbos have now that they are no longer needed? They could have done some good instead of prostituting themselves to those who would do him harm. And I hope we will be seeing more of him. God Bless You, Herman!!!

    In February 1995, in contemplative solitude while worshipping in the Mormon temple in Washington DC. I received what I knew to be the voice of God. The experience, coincidentally, was in the 35th year of my mortal life. Having served honorably in the US Navy from 1982 to 1988, a graduate of the Naval Academy, flying for the past 23 years as an airline pilot, witnessing the ugliness of politics and the stranglehold the enemy of all righteousness has on our political system and on our country, I can no longer ignore the commandment I received nearly 17 years ago. If God fearing people believe he speaks to man today, I invite your candid response. Should I do as he commands, “Run for President” by following Herman Cain’s example as a political outsider, or begin by holding some other political office? Sincerely a fellow concerned patriot.

    I too wish Herman had “stayed the course”. As painful as it may have been, it would have showed the side of him that is necessary to run a country……the toughness and stamina that is so needed! What, I now wonder, would have been the outcome. So maybe a seed of doubt had been planted into the minds of many of the People, but seeds don’t necessarily take root and grow. Sometimes they just die in the dirt! I feel, this too, would have, as time went on, and Herman continued on his path, He would have buried that seed of doubt. Now all most people will do is wonder……was he premature in walking away? I think so! The Fight had to be fought…..I wish he had stayed in the battle and fought it!
