WND: Spread the word: Cain is for real

© 2011
My late grandmother used to say: “They’re smart, but they’re still stupid.” I find that adage apropos pursuant to the political zeitgeist of today.

The problem with the program hosts and media and the beltway illuminati whose lead everyone else follows is that they associate and reason with mirror images of themselves. They have no idea who we “the American people” really are. They will deny what I’m saying, but they’ve long forgotten what life was like outside the cloistered Martha’s Vineyard bubble they now live in. And that’s for the ones who had a clue to begin with.

Their neighborhood’s idea of occupational diversity is driving a different color BMW X5 and/or S Class than their neighbor. It’s also the reason why we hear them and their guests ostensibly saying the same things, even if phrased differently. Which is why, I argue, we should listen circumspectly.

When you listen to them talk, they’ve got the political race all figured out. “Romney’s got the money,” they say. “He’s got the organization, he understands business, and he’s created jobs.” According to their models, hell would need to freeze over for Romney not to get the nomination. So, armed with talking points and their cocktail reasoning, they presume to have the answers.

Romney’s winning the nomination may make the Karl Rove /George Bush factions of the party happy – but if that scenario plays out it will only be because Republican voters held their collective noses and bought the lie that Romney is the only one who can beat Obama. The tea-party people are neither fooled nor taken in by Romney. And quite frankly, the thought held by many in the media and Republican hierarchy – that the Romney campaign would be a coronation walk – is as scurrilous to us as were the hateful screeds that Rove, Charles Krauthammer and John McCain’s daughter made about Sarah Palin.

Rove and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus may want Romney – but if the Party were smart, they’d be on bent knees with crucifixes, rosaries, or whatever, praying that Herman Cain would win. Herman’s winning may not be the death knell, but it would deal the left a blow from which they and their minions would never fully recover. It would change the face of conservative politics and elections for the foreseeable future.

More importantly, Herman Cain has the opportunity not to just win in a way that destroys the cookie-cutter campaign models. It’s precisely because Cain’s model doesn’t require raising the monies and having the nationwide organization that he has a chance to empower the people in a way not witnessed in modern history. I’m betting that one or more of the political geniuses thought about that, but dismissed it as impossible. Impossible, because they’re too smart to realize that they and their polls don’t know what the American people think. They only know what their mirror images tell them we think.

Herman is leading, and it’s not because he’s the flavor of the week. It’s because what he is saying and doing resonates with the people, and many of us believe it was doing so before the Florida debate that supposedly ignited his campaign. The dichotomy between Cain and the other candidates is night and day. Respected economic minds are supporting his 9-9-9 plan.

He speaks from the core of his being. His detractors have to come up with new phrases and political verbiage to define him. Their problem, in the final analysis, is they’re married to the old way of doing things. There is a synecdoche of the Constitution to the people and between opportunity and the person that is clearly understood in Cain’s message. His speeches don’t come across as canned or contrived. He’s not saying what he thinks we want to hear – he’s saying what needs to be said.

I believe if Cain is able to get the nomination, Obama’s war chest of money won’t spare him a crushing defeat. And just as important, he will end the hold race-mongers have over the minds of many. Cain is a man of the people – he’s a throwback to leaders of old. He is voicing heterodoxy different from the phony politically correct meliorism of others. He doesn’t stumble and stutter when not in front of a teleprompter.

A Cain victory would make it clear who has held people back – specifically blacks. There won’t be any questions about his citizenship, his love for country, or socialist associations. His first lady will be one who understands her role and the importance of the office her husband holds. It won’t have taken her entire life to be proud of her/our country. Her husband will not have to reinvent himself. Cain knows who he is and what he believes, and he doesn’t have to lie and obfuscate, because his interests are in the best interest of the people.

It’s up to those who believe that Herman Cain can lead this nation to step up. People need to tell theirs friends, colleagues, relatives and co-workers that Cain is for real. It’s also important for those who believe Herman can lead this nation to ignore those who are busy pointing out that he cannot win because he doesn’t have money or campaign offices in every town and city.

    When it comes to race, I’m color blind. I love Herman Cain and stand behind him along with every other conservative. But I saw a remark in here that makes me glow red. The writer said “we will enter into a period of slavery that I am sure only people of color can relate to.” Sorry! But there is NO black man alive today that has ever tasted slavery as he referenced, and therefore they CANNOT relate to it as he writes. That is such a racist comment and he/she should be ashamed. He also stated “others such as yourself who have also “left the plantation” a long time ago” where no black person today has ever been to leave from. If you truly believe the Bible, then quit promoting ongoing racism. The type of slavery you speak of is over, and it was broken by a Republican name Abraham Lincoln. Nuff said. No further comments from me.

      bill: I don’t recall the comment about returning to slavery that people of color only can relate to…pursuant to having left the plantation the allegorical reference to slavery is not wrong…I personally am 3th generation removed from slavery…my family were slaves in front royal, virginia…also…you will find that I am unapologetically vocal on colorblindness…

      • Bill October 19, 2011 at 7:00 pm #

        The reference is a direct cut and paste from your previous comment. I am sure your family three generations back were able to relate, but none of todays blacks can relate directly as they did. Your ancestors surely came off the plantation but that is not something you can personally claim, and therefore cannot personally relate. Yes, there is racism in America today but it is not just America and it’s not just blacks. Americans have paid for decades for the atrocities of their ancestors in every kind of entitlement program imagineable. But this generation has no business claiming reparations for something so far removed. And if you think it is a white issue, just ask Bill Cosby, also a man of color. Remember, there are a lot of “people of color” who have done very well for themselves and they have to pay through entitlements too. Sorry, Bro. I really think I have paid enough for past mistakes none of which are mine.

          bill: bill cosby is a liberals liberal…I didn’t see the comment to which you were referring…but I think you’ve gone off the deep end since any of the thousands on this site can attest i am the last person you should be ranting at…not that I need defend my positions but where were you when I was being eviscerating for opposing reparations, fighting race-based affirmative action, supporting law enforcement against race-based attacks to mention but three…it sounds to me that you are angry but that you are angry w/out focus…or you will be less inclined to erupt here and direct your energy toward those who are actually unjustly blaming people for the realities of life and for the ills of the past…I should also revisit my opening comment pursuant to cosby…I would be disinclined to ignorantly applaud him because he said one thing that echoed your sentiments…when you have not viewed his entire body politic…it undermines your position…all the best…

          • Bill October 19, 2011 at 7:42 pm #

            Mychal, I have nothing against you. What I am bothered by is the rhetoric that only modern day blacks can understand the problems of slavery. And yes, you did say “only”. Read your previous comments. As far as your other qualitys or lack thereof, I have no opinion. Once again I say, I am not ranting against you personally, but your rhetoric is in my opinion, racist. BTW, I only bring up a reference to Cosby in context of the issue at hand and that is this conversation, certainly not all of his political views. This is my opinion and my right for which I have worked hard to earn. I certainly won’t in any way be personally hostile to you for your excercise of the same right, but I do reserve the right to amicably disagree. So enough with the hostilities. Thanks.

          • Bill October 19, 2011 at 7:44 pm #

            I found your reference to “only”.

            As I begin to see more of Mr. Cain, I am reminded of the story in the Bible where Haaman is plotting to destroy the Jews and Mordecai goes to queen Esther to petition the king on behalf of her people. I believe his statement to her when she is willing to do this, even if it means death, still holds true today. I believe it likely that Herman Cain has been prepared and sent by God “for such a time as this”. We as a nation are truly at the proverbial cross roads and, if we don’t turn our face to God instead of our backs, He will allow captivity to take place and we will enter into a period of slavery that I am sure only people of color can relate to. May God protect Herman Cain, God’s servant, willing to petition the king “for such a time as this” and others such as yourself who have also “left the plantation” a long time ago.

        Bill: i didn’t make the comment per “only”…and as I responded earlier I saw only after your comment…that said I understood what was meant by it…but if you take the time to read all of the comments you will see I addressed it…if you take the time to read all of the comments on my site you will see that I spend an enormous amount of time interacting w/ the persons who take time to write…I interact real time w/ my twitter friends and on my three facebook sites…the one consistent thing you will find is that I make my feelings on race very clear…i suggest you take time to read same rather than become exercised over nothing…I make no apologies for having little patience for certain things…I might also suggest and I say this too you w/ the deepest regard…visit that which makes you so easily angry and put it to bed…i don’t believe you are the person you come across as…I would like to believe you are a kind person carrying a hurt best let go…forgive me if I’m wrong…just an observation…

    Mychal, I located the following breakdown of the Cain 999 plan which might help some who don’t understand how it works:

    A – Enter Gross pay from stub $ 943.25
    B – Enter all state and or local taxes from stub $ 52.53
    C – 9% new income tax (A x .09) $ 84.89
    D – Subtract B and C from A = new net pay $ 805.83
    E – Enter difference from old net to new net Pay (New net subtract old net $ 119.51 in your pocket
    F – If you spent all your income (739.00×9%) (739.00+66.51=805.51) $66.51
    G – Total Federal tax is C+F $151.40

    Mychal, you have hit the nail squarely …. again! It has been obvious for many years that the so-called “elite” that have insulated themselves inside the beltway, and the media, are simply out of touch with the true heartbeat of America yet they continue presuming to tell us what to think, how we are to manage every aspect of our lives according to their dictates, and now again, how we should vote. They turn my stomach are not worth listening to.

    TO ALL: Take note of Mychal’s upcoming interview with J. Christian Adams on 01 November. I am currently reading Mr. Adams’ new book, “Injustice” and would recommend it without hesitation to everyone interested in learning what is happening behind the scenes within the DOJ and who some of the main players are.

    Mr. Massie, you have hit the nail on the head. I also support Mr. Cain and truly believe he is another Reagon in the making. Let’s all remember Reagon didn’t have a lot of the experience everyone seems to think Cain should have, but what Reagon was superb at was choosing good people who did have the experience as advisors. I don’t have one single doubt that Herman Cain will do exactly that same thing and with all the business experience Mr. Cain has, we can all rest assured he knows some fine people and will bring them into the administration as advisors. I also think that, unlike all the Obama advisors, Herman Cain will choose people who have MUCH experience working in the fields they have expert knowledge in. Mr. Cain did not get to the very top of 3 totally different professions without being totally savvy, and I think Obama is scared to death he will win the nomination. The democrats want Romney to win and why???? I think folks of the Romney ilk (and please understand I don’t say Romney couldn’t right the economy) are socialism light as was McCain (he, in fact, tried to upstage Obama a couple of times offering up the same thing Obama promised). Herman has principles and won’t do that!

    I’ve been reading Herman Cain’s columns on WorldNetDaily for a while now & researched his background when I heard he set up an exploration committee for a Presidential campaign. In Feb of this year, I nominated him to my employer when they asked us for influential African-Americans for Black History Month. This has been just a joy to watch him take such a prominent role on the national stage. I knew my instincts were right on! Don’t care much for Newt as a running mate-tho’ he has “book smarts”-he’s become too establishment since the Clinton years. I always felt a Cain/Bachmann ticket would revv things up (w/ her tax background being an asset). Keep up the great work, Mychal! This connection w/ ‘real America’ gives me confidence we’re not letting the media decide a candidate for us!

    As I said in a previous post, Hermann Cain reminds me off my grandfather. No matter that my grandfather was born in 1892 or that I’m considerably older then Mr.Cain. It’s his demeanor that portrays an individual with uncompromising values and work ethic.
    The first time I saw him on the idiot tube I thought there was something special about him. Reading his impressive bio supported my gut impression of him. I don’t give a tinkers damn about his lack of experience in whatever category his detractors emphasize. His past shows that whatever endeavor he undertakes is done so with an attitude that accepts nothing less than excellence as an outcome. He will be a phenomenal president.
    Obama is a half white half black president. Romney would be a all white Obama.

    Shalom, Mychal ~ I agree with you that Mr. Cain is a Leader. I am NOT convinced, yet, that he has the “right stuff” to be POTUS, over other GOP presidential candidates. That said, sir, if the choice was the “zero one” and Mr. Cain, show me where to put my money and energy! Mr. Cain has not yet developed muscular foreign policy points or paper. The Israel missteps are exhibit A (see our blog River Rising Review and post today). World-class economist Art Laffer’s piece in today’s WSJ strengthens 9-9-9 in its clarity and brevity. “Yes We Cain” is smart, as your grandmom would say; but stupid without a nationally organized campaign of depth. Mr. Cain’s success stories at Burger King, GodFathers’ and his talk radio stint all required smart staff not doing stupid. Mychal, your voice is missed on Ramble & Rumble with Rabbi! and with this posting on your Daily Rant an warm invitation is extended … M-W-F of next week @ 3:40 p central?

        Shalom, Mychal ~ “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” James Madison
        My point was certainly NOT that the POTUS needs to be a genius or even a genius in foreign policy. Yes, I would agree that mature and muscular Leadership includes a smart staff that does not do stupid. A point I have made before, perhaps in another forum.
        You would surely agree that the singular policy area POTUS has greatest influence is in foreign policy. So, anyone, anyone seeking POTUS or to be a heart-beat away as in VP, had better go to school with muscular advisors in advance on foreign policy.
        The leadership ability to listen to smart staff who may strongly disagree (not on personality, but that may affect their volume) on policy direction is not, in these times of danger, a simplistic on-the-job-training. That is clearly part of the danger we have now in the WH – incompetency in our American form of government, principles and foreign policy history.
        The consulting practice I operated for 35+ years was built with and around a professional staff. But as chairman, president and ceo I bore the responsibility of failures and made sure senior staff got credit for the wins. I sense you followed a similar path of Leadership and do so even now.

            The radio rabbi posted this comment on AT (AMERICAN THINKER) early this morning underneath an essay reviewing Mr. Cain’s autobiography:AMERICAN THINKER: Herman Cain’s Campaign Autobiography by Elise Cooper

            First, I want to encourage fellow American Patriots to continue to vigorously vet each of the GOP candidates. In fact, I would challenge each of us to be able to answer this question: “What is the best attribute(s) this GOP presidential candidate brings to the table and why?” Can you do that for all 7 who were still standing on the stage at the GOP Western debate? Think through it, my fellow American thinkers.

            Secondly, narrow your list to the two you could live with and get in line with, though you may not be in love with them. Only after completing these first two steps do we move ourselves from the media-dominated sound bites of dismissing one another to a real clear choice.

            Yes, I would agree that any of the 7 would serve our nation better than “O.” But honestly the bar is not very high when you factor in his marxist, socialist liberal-progressive dalliances within our American republic form of government.

            All that being said, it is absolutely imperative that Mr. Herman Cain surround himself NOW with smart-staff-who-don’t-do-stupid who will help him develop a muscular foreign policy & vision.

            The leader of the free world will not have time to learn American foreign policies & their competing histories on-the-job. The vision must have value that the American citizen can and will evaluate.

            The media has already focused on exposing this glaring weakness of Mr. Cain and he has yet to go to school since the first debate when he honestly admitted he did not know what the Palestinian right-of-return was and how if affects our ally Israel. The pre-debate interview by Wolf Blitzer was another set-up to expose the soft underbelly of Cain’s foreign policy vision & values.

            I trust that Mr. Cain and his supporters are not asking us to elect a POTUS who simply lets the career diplomats with their Arabist leanings in the State Department determine U.S. foreign policy.

            Leadership requires a muscular foreign policy that may be captured in Reaganesque phrases, “Peace through Strength, ” “Trust but verify,” and “We Win, they lose.” But, please, don’t ask us to elect another “hope for change” in the dangerous times we and our children & grandchildren now live in.

            Be real, Mr. Cain. You can do the math in foreign policy. Let’s see you show your homework, not just that you got the right bottom line answer.

  13. Aardvark October 19, 2011 at 2:29 pm #

    Mychal: Your comments about Candidate Cain are the hope of today’s Tea Party supporters and free-thinking Americans. We the People of the United States are collectively exhausted dealing with traditional politicians.

    I do love what Newt Gingrich now says and how he says it. But he is historically part of traditional politics. I love the calm demeanor of Rick Santorum and logical comments especially when he challenged that Romney does not have the believability capital needed for backing by millions of Tea Party supporters. Romney is a questionable RINO. Santorum is also “right-on” that our Corporate Tax should be dropped to 0%. Only the voting tax-payer citizens pay for the corporate taxes through the products and services they purchase. Drop that tax to zero and watch industry explode with jobs and creativity unmatched in the world!

    I like 70% of Ron Paul’s clarity, but totally fear he is irrational when stating off-the-wall remarks that make everyone shake their heads in disbelief, me included. Perry is sometimes hot on the issue (example: drill baby drill) and then turns ice-cold. Who in their right mind supports giving $100K to someone “illegal” and deny the same to a legal citizen? Only a RINO! He’s not for us.

    Congresswoman Bachmann adds a strong and clear emphasis on only a few issues like Obamacare. I noted she is now recognizing how strong the comments of Gingrich have been and is trying to learn on-the-fly from Newt. But unfortunately our Presidency is not a two or three person coalition.

    Right how Herman Cain is the sign of a growing and revitalized American Revolution based upon our existing US Constitution. Dead are the lingering trappings of skin color because those playing the race card have nothing else to offer our country! Mr. Cain shows all Americans what is possible.

    Cain shows real promise, not the vagaries of Obama’s “change” which leaves Americans holding a bag of crap and Obama telling you it smells good but would have smelled worse if he had not perfumed it with the sickening scent of wealth redistribution and socialism which will enslave his followers. Obama has proven to be a pied piper with zero leadership skills and questionable intelligence of an educated man unable to appropriately apply the learning he acquired in Universities.

    I believe American voters are awakening. Fewer are willing to swallow the kool aid spiked by traditional liars in politics. On November 11, 2011 American Veterans and like-minded defenders of our US Constitution shall descend upon Washington DC demanding the resignations of hundreds of corrupt politicians regardless of their party. They are bankrupt.

    Herman Cain, a businessman, knows about bankruptcy not from experience but from the standpoint of how to turn an organization away from it. If I had to vote today, President Herman Cain would be handed the reins of leadership and I would gladly follow him into battle.

      I just have to stick my nose in here concerning Perry. I live in the great Republic of Texas and have just a few observations. Perry is the governor that wanted to have young girls in our state vaccinated without parental approval. We found out later that the vaccine company had made substantial donations to his re-election kitty and given one of his top people a pretty cushy job at a bunch of thousands of annual dollars. We also learned that young girls were dying from the vaccine in other states that did not get it stopped. Perry claims credit for his tax reductions. What he doesn’t tell you is that all the taxes he cut were picked up by local governments leaving the tax payer net zero. I’ve heard very little about his making nice with La Raza and we should all pay close attention to that. They are a long way from our friends. Finally, he lied to us about the trans Texas corridor that will consume millions of acres via eminent domain and the Spanish company that he selected to build it also gets to run it and enjoy the profits. Don’t let the media fool you again by leaving out important information on the candidates they like. You have to do your own research to find the truth. Don’t pay any attention to what the politicians and media have to say. Talk to the people that lived under their terms. Like we used to say when I lived in Georgia and were asked if we were going to vote for Jimmah Cater. Our answer was “Hell yes. We’ll do anything to get him out of the state.”

    What’s not to like: Cain is 1.Well educated, yet not lacking in common sense. 2. Well spoken, yet not condecending in speech. 3. Successful leader, yet humble in spirit. 4. A minority race, yet appealing to a mjority of all colors and creeds. and on and on this list could go! Hermain Cain for President. The most qualified candidate to be presented to the American people in at least 60 years.

    When I first found Mr. Cain two years ago, I made the comment that it would be grand if this man ran for President. He is indeed a gift to this nation at one of our most critical moments. The 9-9-9 plan is simplistic brilliance that unfortunately, the sychophants that Mychal so eloquently speaks of herein are now using their “scare tactics” on by saying that it is a tax on top of the taxes we already have. It IS NOT a TAX ON TOP OF TAXES. It REPLACES the taxes already in existence and Herman must make this more clear. If Romeny wins the primary nomination, I feel in my gut that our system is fixed, not only in the way Mychal describes in this article. Romney is, to me, a very “liberal conservative” and is NOT what this country needs at this time, if ever! I didn’t like him 4 years ago and I still don’t like him (for President). Cain is able!! If you can, please donate any amount you can afford to his campaign. Don’t let Romney’s money or the talking-head media hand this man to us on a platter. I’m tired of holding my nose and voting for the lesser of two evils.

    As I look at field beginning to narrow, when Santorum drops out I believe his supporters will go to Cain and Gingrich. I believe Bachmann’s followers will follow that trend also. I think Perry’s will split to Cain, Gingrich and Romney. I think Paul’s will go cain and Gingrich.
    obama, the media and RINOs want Romney and we keep hearing that he is the leader. I think he is way more vulnerable than they let on.
    Personally I am leaning toward a Gingrich/Cain ticket.
    Newt can step in and use his experience to make things happen quickly while getting Herman some inside Washington experience and more time to explain and implement 9-9-9. More legitimate finance people are getting on board with 9-9-9. I think the thing people are not understanding is the incremental taxes that are bundled into the final price of a product would be eliminated making the initial price of a product lower. Everyone slamming the program are assuming a 9% increase on prices as they are today. That is not the case. JMHO

    Another good one. Thank you. There was a lot covered; but, we don’t seem to talk enough about how we true conservatives need to put this “conservative establishment” down. It is as progressive as the liberals in growing government…evidenced by the 5% increase in government spending under a republican controlled house. Another McCain (AKA Romney or Perry) is the last thing that we need. It will cause one of two things: 1. Government will continue to grow or 2. Government will continue to grow.

    Cain represents himself as a conservative. I trust him. We need bold, out of the box, thinking. Cain is providing that. The rest of the pack are institutionalized politicans believing in the bureacracy blather that is our government today.

      shark daddy: actually Herman presents himself as a problem solver conservative which is exactly what he has done…I remember his run for congress…he hasn’t ahd to reinvent himself…he is espousing same points of view…

  19. Jack October 19, 2011 at 1:55 pm #

    If Mr. Cain can keep up the straight talk & common sense he may have a chance. If he lets them get him down in the dirt & off message he’ll lose. Keep your guard up & your shoes clean Mr. Cain. You’ve got my vote.

    I’m behind HC 100%. I am realistic and know he’s got a lack of experience in the National Security/Defense arena, but with a great running mate (Newt, I hope), and a good panel of advisors, I think he has what it will take to lead the US back to a well defended and prosperous path. Herman Cain’s experience in the business sector is a huge bonus and he understands economics and finance amazingly well.

    Mychal, I need to ask you, Do the majority of those in the black community understand what Herman Cain means when he says he “left the plantation long ago”? It’s hard for me to believe there aren’t lots of folks who, in their hearts, do understand but just can’t break the “tradition” of voting for the Democratic candidate.
    However, as you and I may be thinking, they must understand this could be the last time they or any of us are given a choice.

      Mychal October 19, 2011 at 1:03 pm #

      bill sr: two things…first you ask your question from the wrong perspective…the question should be asked wholistically i.e. does America understand what Herman is saying…we must move from race-based perceptions…they serve no useful purpose other than to divide…only those who use race as currency to further their agenda benefit…force yourself to get used to thinking outside that box…second: the last time I noticed God was on the throne…He will decide when the last time is…

  23. carpenter October 19, 2011 at 12:21 pm #

    I’m voting Cain, whenever I hear that stuff from either the MSM or Republican talking heads I shake my head and think “what the hell are they talking about, they know nothing”.I don’t need or want those fools to tell me who to vote for and why.

    Herman Cain comes as a huge gift to the nation at this time and a great benefit to the conservative cause.
    His knowledge and experience as well as his common sense approach to solving problems was first over looked by even the conservative media. Then he was considered a dark horse. As his message and demeanor were exposed to the public it became clear he is a “top notched” candidate.
    I pray to God the forces of evil within the media, the “establishment”, and hearts of elites in Washington do not deny us our opportunity to have this man lead our country out of the mess Obama and the liberals have us in today.

      bill sr: they can’t do anything we don’t let them…we are in charge…that’s one of the things that makes them crazy w/ Herman…he is doing everything unconventional and leading…it is driving them crazy…they can’t explain or understand it…

      • Sumitch October 20, 2011 at 1:17 am #

        I think that so much of the electorate is so disgusted with the lies and disappointments that they will vote for almost any different approach.
