Herman Cain's Libya Gaffe: Let's Examine The Video


I heard a lot about Herman Cain’s “Libya” video yesterday.  It always works out like this; I’m in no position to sit down and watch a video, and everyone’s talking about it.  I heard it was really bad, and the snippets I saw on the news made it look pretty bad also, so I was expecting a train wreck of epic proportions.  Well, I hate to tell you, but I was disappointed.  It wasn’t as much of a train wreck as I’d been led to believe.  It was more like watching someone struggle to parallel park a car, so they circle the block in frustration, and then they find a new space has opened up just as they’ve come back around around the block.  It was awkward and sad, but train wreck it was not.  I actually felt compelled to annotate the video with my thoughts.  Check it out below.

So that’s pretty much it.  It looks like they woke him up on the bus, threw some clothes on him, and shoved him in the interview.  He seems to be progressively waking up throughout the conversation, and by the halfway point, he seems to know what he’s doing.  I don’t know about you, but it didn’t seem like that much of a train wreck upon viewing the whole video.

What do you guys think?  Was he just sleepy?  Was some “special” liquid in that bottle of “water”?  Or was it a total flame-out train wreck, after all?

Let us know what you guys think in the comments below.  And as always, resist we much.

Bialek's Ex-Boyfriend Victor Jay Zuckerman has Troubles of His Own

Sharon Bialek’s ex-boyfriend Victor Jay Zuckerman, appeared recently with Attorney Gloria Allred to corroborate her accusation that Herman Cain groped her in 1997. Bialek’s credibility has been called into question by some due to extensive legal and financial troubles.

An examination of Illinois court record’s reveals, however, that Zuckerman has bigger financial and legal problems than she does. Court documents (1:10-cv-07844 DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION) reveal that Zuckerman, on Sep 15th of 2010, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the Western District of Louisiana. His creditors include, among others, Stratford Center (with claims of $675,000.00), his ex-wife (with claims of $89,000.00), and the IRS (with claims of $50,000.00).

The lawsuit filed in Illinois, is an effort by Stratford Medical Center to recover funds from Stratford Pediatric, the practice owned by Zukerman. Documents in the case state that “In May 2010 (after the bench trial, but before the judgment was entered) Stratford Pediatric sold its assets to Central DuPage Hospital for $333,000.00 in cash. This money was mostly transferred to Zuckerman’s personal accounts. He soon went on a gambling and day trading spree and lost all of the money. In July 2010, Zuckerman moved to Louisiana.”

Full Video of November 12th CBS/National Journal GOP Presidential Debate

Join CDNews for coverage of tonight’s CBS/National Journal Republican Candidate debate at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

The debate will be hosted by CBS News and the National Journal. The focus of tonight’s event will be on national security and foreign policy.

What to Watch For:

Rick Perry will need to have a strong performance tonight to overcome a string of debate mis-steps. He also has little foreign policy experience which may come through this evening.

Newt Gingrich will most-likely come on strong keeping-up with his strong debate appearances throughout the year. The former speaker has polled above all other candidates in the area of the military and international crisis handling.

While his domestic policies are popular among Republicans, views differ on his foreign policy and national security stances. This could be a differentiating moment for Rep. Paul, positive or negative.

Herman Cain’s business experience may not help tonight. The 9-9-9 plan will probably show up somehow, but overall expect Cain to focus on his “peace through strength and clarity” foreign policy. Specifics have been light the few times he’s mentioned it in campaign speeches and his foreign policy views have not been the subject of any real media focus or debate questioning.

Mitt Romney led the pack in a recent CBS News Poll that asked which candidate is best-suited to be Commander-in-Chief. Among likely Republican primary voters, 26% chose Romney to Gingrich’s 21%. Cain and Perry were 11% and 9% respectively.

This may be the last debate that features the entire current cast of 8. Future debates will start limiting invites to those with a larger share of support. Expect Huntsman and Santorum to miss future debate appearances as their poll numbers have stayed consistently below 5%. Bachmann could fail to receive invites shortly after that if her numbers continue to hold right at or near the 5% mark.

Where to Watch: Here is the Recording of tonight’s debate – full-length (long blank pauses are commercial breaks, be patient or forward through to the next segment)

Herman Cain In The News Again- A Skit

Open the scene at a national lame stream media newscast

News Anchor:  “We have a report from the scene that Republican Candidate Herman Cain is attempting to swat a dangerous mosquito.  We will be going to our field reporter later in the news cast.  This is really big, a man swatting at a mosquito that could knock him out of the presidential race.  This is a story that could end a bid for a presidential nomination.  More later on that but for now we will take a commercial break.”

Now Behind the scenes, off air, what the viewers can’t see or hear:

Field Anchor:  (Laughing) “You should see this guy. I keep telling him there is a mosquito buzzing his head but there isn’t.  He’s waving, and waving.  This is hilarious.”

Anchor:  “You idiot, we have been hyping this story since the beginning of the telecast.  We can’t go to the audience and tell them it is a fake story to waste their time and unfairly destroy a career.  What are we going to do”?

P.R. Man:  “Don’t worry.  Just begin to talk about what a pathetic job he is doing swatting at the mosquito”.

Anchor: “They won’t buy that”.

P. R. Man:  “Yes they will. Our viewers are so stupid they would believe it was snowing in hell if we had fire, snow, and a guy in a devil suit in the same picture.  And we can get the Republican talking heads to agree with us because they want the air time”.

Anchor: “What about the TEA Party and Cain supporters?”

P. R. Man: “Don’t worry about them. We will just call them racists, mosquito-phobes, and Nazi’s, you know, like we usually do. Our viewers will eat that up, all 2% of them.”

Now to the report:

Anchor: “Now we go to our field reporter who is with Herman Cain.”

Field Reporter:  “Thank you, anchor. I am here with Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain.  He is swatting at what he thinks is a mosquito.  No one has actually seen the mosquito but it has been reported by anonymous sources that one is actually hovering around his head. What is unique about this story is that he can’t seem to hit the mosquito.  He doesn’t seem to be capable of swatting this mosquito because he isn’t holding his hand in the right position.   Mr. Cain, you seem to be having a hard time with this mosquito.”

Herman Cain:  “I don’t see any mosquito.   I don’t hear any mosquito.  Where is this mosquito?”

Field Reporter:  “Mr. Cain, how does it feel to not be able to swat this mosquito you can’t see or hear?”

Herman Cain: “Do you see a mosquito?”

Field Reporter:  “Mr. Cain, there must be a mosquito.   We have reports of a mosquito hovering around your head.  I don’t need to see the mosquito, it has been reported to exist.”

Herman Cain:   (stops waving , frustrated by now) “Do you see a mosquito? Show me this mosquito you keep telling me about and I will swat it.  There is no mosquito for me to swat.”

Field Reporter: “Well, Mr. Cain has stopped swatting at the mosquito and has yelled at me. How could he talk to me that way?  Mr. Cain, has spoken rudely to this reporter.  Now back to the anchor desk” (reporter breaks into sobbing)

Anchor: “Thank you field reporter.  Well that was just unnecessary.  Not only can Mr. Cain not swat the reported mosquito, he has been gruff to a member of the media.  Analyst, what do you think of this little outrage?”

Analyst: “Well it is obvious that Mr. Cain is not very good at swatting mosquitos.  Not only can he not swat a mosquito properly, he seemed to get miffed because we kept reporting on a mosquito that wasn’t there instead of listening to what he had to say about the economy.  It is painfully obvious to this analyst that Mr. Cain does not realize who he is speaking to.  He will learn to bow to us like the other Republicans do.”

Anchor:  “Thank you, Analyst, I quite agree. Now a word from our sponsor.”

Off air once again:

P.R. Man: (Comes running in): “That was great. Everyone in every media outlet is talking about how bad Herman Cain is at swatting mosquitos. They have no idea that the reported mosquito doesn’t even exist.  And our viewers are all talking about Cain’s mosquito swatting technique. By the time they figure out there was no mosquito Herman Cain will be ruined.”

Anchor:  “We really pulled that one off. Everyone is talking about how a man can’t swat a mosquito that doesn’t exist.  We have total control of public opinion. I AM ALL POWERFUL!!!! Now the rest of the candidates will bow down to us and be afraid to oppose anything we say. If they do, we can do the same thing to them and all the others will cower before us.” (Maniacal Laughter).

 

Racial Hypocrisy Is Alive and Well in America

As we head into another Presidential election cycle, racism has once again becoming front and center in the focus of American political discourse.  Unfortunately racism, and the hypocrisy that goes with it, is indeed alive and well in our nation today, 146 years after the Civil War ended and 46 years after the Civil Rights Act was passed.  It saddens me to see that some in this country have not progressed any further along the road to acceptance of race as a non-factor in life.

If you don’t believe racism is real, just look at the media treatment of Herman Cain.  Like him or not, agree with his policies or not, Herman Cain is an authentic American who happens to be black.  He is not a hyphenated American; he is an American, period.  When I say he is an authentic American I mean that he believes in the Constitution and the values that have made this country great.  When I say authentically black, I mean both of his parents are black.

The same media knotheads, who call me a racist because I oppose the policies of Barack Obama, publicly call Herman Cain names like “token negro”, “Oreo cookie”, “bad apple”, “Uncle Tom”, “a black man who knows his place”, and accuse him of “smoking a symbolic crack pipe”, “currying white favor”, and the like- things that I would never dream of saying.  Some of these self-absorbed, pretentious “journalists” and commentators are white and some are black, but none of them have a clue what main stream America is about.

Where were these kinds of references in 2007 and 2008?  Barack Obama received an awful lot of the white votes.  Why were these kinds of comments not made when he was receiving so much support from the white community?  You didn’t hear conservatives uttering such tripe; and these same “journalists” and commentators fawned over Obama like he was a god.  Conservatives talked about Marxism and socialism running for the White House, not the “house negro”.

Why is Obama, whose mother was white, blacker than Cain, whose parents are both black?  Could it be because Cain is a conservative, the worst thing in life a “person of color” can be?  I have heard black people and white people, all of them liberals by the way, call Cain vile names that I would never call him, or any other person, regardless of the color of their skin.  Obama is of mixed race, Cain is of pure race, yet Cain is the one who is “not black enough”.  That is an interesting concept; not a sensible one, but an interesting one, none the less.

Karen Finney, a Democrat “strategist” appearing with Martin Bashir on MSNBC, said that Herman Cain is “a black man who knows his place” and therefore is acceptable to the TEA Party and makes them “feel like they are not racist because they like this guy”. Bashir’s response is “thank you for spelling that out”.

Does anyone else find this as vile and ridiculous as I find it?  Has anyone ever heard a TEA Party person make such an asinine
statement?  No, I didn’t think so.  Lloyd Marcus seems to be accepted at TEA Party events, as are any other “people of color”, who believe in liberty, justice, and the American Way.

Does anyone remember the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court hearings?   Thomas referred to the attacks on him as a high-tech lynching. It wasn’t conservative Republicans who trashed Clarence Thomas, it was liberals, Democrats, both black and white, but all of them liberals who are supposedly consumed with “racial equality”.  Thomas was ridiculed because his wife is white, not by conservatives, but by liberals.  And who could ever doubt the “Reverend” Al Sharpton when he tells us that Cain is not an “authentic black man” because he doesn’t espouse the “oh woe is me” attitude that only government can provide for success in the black community.  Cain isn’t being reviled by conservatives but by liberals.  We “conservative TEA Party racist types” accept Herman Cain but liberals don’t.  Hmmm, curious, this race question.

When a liberal calls me a racist because of my stand for freedom and against the Obama, Reid, Pelosi brand of Marxism, I count it as a compliment.  I know I am not a racist and so do they.  The key is that they know they have nothing else to stand on so they try the age-old intimidation tactic of name calling.  Well, it just doesn’t work any longer.  We, the supposed racists, have wised up, and now ignore this tactic.  We are no longer intimidated by name calling.

The true racists in the country are those telling American citizens ”of color” that they cannot accomplish anything on their own, that the only way for them to have anything is to hold their hand out to liberal white folks who know what is in their best interests.  Or they can hold their hand out to “Reverend” Al Sharpton or “Reverend” Jesse Jackson, who will go to their white liberal overseers and ask for “alms for their poor black folks”.  Just as a side note, I consider myself a “person of color” also.  As far as I know white is still a color, and actually, except for my beard, I am more beige than white.

Have you noticed that the pundits and mouthpieces for racism, black or white, seem to be doing just fine, financially, in the pundit world?  And how do the “Justice Brothers”, Al and Jesse, make their money?  Do they actually have churches they pastor or do they make their money pandering to white liberal guilt, the government, and telling black Americans that they are less than whites?  I surmise that the “Justice Brothers” make their money extorting money from anyone they can find to extort money from.  If one doesn’t give them money it must be because one is racist.  It can’t possibly be because one believes they are “race hustling poverty pimps”.

And before anyone labels me a racist on that last statement, it is a quote from J. C. Watts, a former Oklahoma Republican Congressman and quarterback at the University of Oklahoma.  He made that statement on the floor of the House of Representatives in speaking of “Reverend” Jackson.  He must also be a racist in the books of “Reverends” Al and Jesse, and apparently another “house negro telling whites what they want to hear”.

I never tell anyone they can’t make it on their own.  I never tell anyone of any color that the answer to their problems is a government hand out, that they are too stupid to succeed, or they are incapable of making a success of themselves.  Is the key to success in our nation really a government handout or is it hard work, honesty, integrity, and dedication?

Racism is alive and well in the liberal sections of society.  Conservatism says hard work and dedication will bring success, without ever bringing skin color into the mix.  Herman Cain worked his way through college.  His parents worked at least 2 jobs each when he was young so they could help their children get the education they would need to become successful in life.  They didn’t sit back and wait for Al and Jesse to bring them a handout to keep them in line and in poverty.  Cain’s parents had a vision of what it takes to succeed in life and they instilled that in their children.

Herman Cain has been successful because he understands how to be successful.  He has worked his way up to where he is today through education, dedication to values, and the willingness to apply himself to accomplish the tasks assigned by those above him in authority.  He wasn’t content to sit on his butt and wait for Al and Jesse to hand him the pittance they normally hand their dependants.  I believe the key to his success as much as anything else is his treatment of others.  He is as considerate and respectful of the doorman at a hotel as he is to a CEO of any corporation.

To say in 2011 that Herman Cain has succeeded because he is the “house negro” of the TEA Party and conservative Americans is insulting to all Americans of all colors.  It shows where racism dwells and it isn’t in conservative circles.  This treatment of Cain shows once again that “people of color” who don’t tow the liberal line will be subjected to attacks of all kinds to keep them in line.  For anyone to say that any “person of color” cannot succeed by their own initiative in today’s America is as racist as one can get.

Many Americans, including this writer, oppose Barack Obama because of his Marxist policies and his promise to “fundamentally transform America”.  We are called racists and bigots because no one can really oppose his “enlightenment”; it absolutely has to be racism.  I am not in Cain’s camp but I do respect and like the man based on his accomplishments and his vision for America.

Neither Cain nor Obama have any standing with me, for better or worse, due to the color of their skin.  My opinions of both are based entirely on their policies and their vision of the future of the nation I cherish.  I find it rather odd that the people who support Obama are not racists but those who oppose him are racists.  And those who support Herman Cain are racists but those who oppose him are not racists.  I am like the duck in the AFLAC commercial shaking my head and going, HUH?????????????????????????????

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Conservatives Should Stand Up in Face of Cain Scrutiny

So far in this Herman Cain saga, we have seen only one accuser give a specific account of what happened. Mr. Cain has denied the allegation, and there is no plausible way for him to prove a negative. On my view, the burden of proof now falls on Sharon Bialek, and a mere accusation just isn’t sufficient. Given the above, commentators claiming to be conservative need to show better restraint. Pursuing the facts in light of the allegations is one thing, but to call for Mr. Cain to drop out of the race to avoid being a distraction is asinine. This is the big leagues, the land where the ends justify the means for too many. We need to remember that when we hear accusations. Whether or not the accusations are true matters, but I’ve sensed that too many of us have assumed they are. This is very dangerous. It provides a template for the left that all they have to do is accuse someone they do not like on our side, say it loudly enough, and repeat it, then they can run against the Mitt Romneys of the Republican Party.

The tragedy of all of this is that this piece does not have a chance to debate the merits of Herman Cain the candidate. It is a piece about hearsay, meaning the accusers and the left have successfully distracted us from the issues most important in selecting a leader. Character certainly matters, but think of the resources that have been diverted from discussing the merits of smaller government, tax reform, and all of the other issues that have recently energized the conservative base.

The left is succeeding in censorship, and the Herman Cain circus is but a microcosm of its tactics. The race for 2012 is not going to be easy, but we have to have the stomach to be confrontational, and those willing to sacrifice Cain based on the utter weakness of what we know so far, I am afraid we do not have the will to win. Our future is in front of us, and the choices are as lucid as I can ever remember. One path leads us to a Tea Party type atmosphere. The other is Occupy Wall Street. We know which we prefer, but how badly do we want it?

Mr. Morality, Bill Clinton Calls for an End to Presidential Term Limits



Impeached, former president Bill Clinton specifically told Morning Joe that while he does not think he should be allowed to pollute our White House again in the future, run for POTUS again, so just whom would he have in mind when he says U.S. Presidents should be able to take a little break and then run for reelection again?  He tells America that we should just repeal the 22nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution in the above interview. Would Bill be suggesting that he would like his good friend, G.W. Bush to be allowed another shot at being our president? Not likely there, despite the media-muckers pathetic attempts to convince us that those two are lifelong buddies today. How about digging up Progressive Poppa FDR for a fifth term? He has certainly has had a good long rest. [in a graveyard where it is quite peaceful] I,m sure the progressive stage prop managers of today could find one of their Hollywood make-up artist pals to make FDR look presentable for photo shoots for another presidential campaign if they tried hard enough.  No, FDR probably wouldn’t be elected to another term today, as the whole world now knows FDR died of a massive brain tumor that exploded in a stroke that killed him.( That sure explains a lot, as far as how mentally competent the author of the progressive New Deals 1 and 2, was during his time in office) 

Stop the presses!  What if the person to whom Bill is referring to isn’t an ex-President of the United States ? What if Bill Clinton has now come to the reality of the distinct possibility that Barack Obama will become a one and done President by being thrown out of office in the 2012 elections? Barry is still relatively young, and with a few more years of mentoring from Billy Clinton and Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, Barry just might be able to hide enough of his record to make another run for POTUS in the future. Would the American citizenry ever be so gullible and politically ignorant enough, to ignore just what Barack Hussein Obama has done to this country during his first term in office, and elect him at a future date? They certainly proved to be just that in 2008, when they elected him the first time, didn’t they?

   Pictured at the left is President Obama, Bill Clinton and Chicago slumlord extraordinaire Valerie Jarrett, whom with no actual credible experience in government is now serving as a senior adviser to the President, and whom many say is the driving force behind the far left Liberal Obama policies that have plagued this nation for over three years now.  We can only surmise  just what Clinton was lecturing Obama about on that occasion, yet when considering Clinton’s recent calling for the repeal of the 22nd amendment on Presidential term limits, we could now draw the following caption:

 “Now listen, Barry, these ignorant Americans have somehow caught on to our Socialistic agenda of transforming America into a third-world rat-hole by trampling on the U.S. Constitution and bypassing Congress by enforcing illegal laws by executive fiat, so here is what we are going to do. We will start a national propaganda campaign to repeal the 22nd amendment, so that when the American voters throw you out of office in the 2012 elections, we can reinsert you at a later date to continue our Socialistic agenda. Remember, I am the expert here on fooling the American public, just look at how I got away with saying I never had sex with Monica. Even though I was impeached, there are still enough gullible sheep who think we are the Democrats of yesteryear who actually cared about the working class and the poor. “

In getting back to the above interview with Joe Scarborough, once again Americans are being lectured by disgraced ex- President Bill Clinton, he of the “Head White House intern, Monica Lewinsky goes down under in the White House” fame.  With 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain facing an avalanche of allegations of “attempted” vague sexual advances while being married, ( just as Clinton was when he actually cheated on Hillary) and the media flooding our lives with the related sensationalist headlines across America the past few weeks, we must ask ourselves why we  constantly allow ourselves to be lectured by Slick Willy Clinton, the former pot-smoking-but-never-inhaling, philandering, dishonest, morally bankrupt adulterer, on anything concerning our lives today. Has America become that soullessly ignorant or so completely morally bankrupt today? Considering that the infamous “Little Blue Dress” Monica Lewinsky was wearing at the time she was showing Willy just how delicious she thought he was  started a pop-culture-like worship once upon a time, yes,  I,d say America is well on their way to becoming 100% morally bankrupt.

Willy refused to actually identify the actual piece of legislation that created term limits in America, while slickly also avoiding mentioning by name the Democratic President that the 22nd amendment was specifically drawn up for, to prevent future Presidents from remaining in the White House for more than two terms. That would be what many historians believe to be considered the father of the Progressive/Socialist movement in America, one Franklin Delano Roosevelt. (FDR) Not to be confused with the Grandfather of the progressive movement, Mr. Woodrow Wilson, with a dishonorable mention going to semi-Republican Teddy Roosevelt.

Past Progressive Presidents make GOP candidate Herman Cain look like an alter boy.

FDR was the President of the United States from 1933 – 1945.  President Franklin Roosevelt died in the first year of his fourth presidential term. In the room with him at the time of his death was his daughter, Anna Roosevelt Boettiger, an artist doing a portrait of FDR and…. his longtime mistress, one Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd.  Upon hearing of her husband’s death, Mrs. Roosevelt faced not only the disturbing news of FRD’s death, but also the fact that his mistress was with him on his deathbed in the White House.   While U.S Presidential history is chock full of philandering, womanizing, morally bankrupt adulterers, (FDR, JFK, Willy Clinton) today’s progressive media hypocrites are today consumed with Herman Cain’s ”suggested” or “wishful” unfaithfulness to his wife by unnamed and non-credible accusers. Golly gee whiz Batman, imagine what they would be doing if Herman Cain actually had Bialik under the White House desk like Slick Willy did, or carried on a decades long affair with a mistress who was at his bedside upon his death right in the White House? (As Poppa-Progressive FDR did)

The last thing the American people will ever allow to happen is the repealing of the 22nd amendment of Willy Clinton’s dreams in order to allow the Marxist ideologue and lifelong Bill Ayers student, Barack Obama to slither back into the White House again. It is also immensely disgusting to see the progressive-liberal media operatives putting the perverted, unfaithful adulterer who disgraced the United States office of the Presidency for all the world to see, on national television to lecture the American people.  Bill Clinton is a disgrace to this great nation, and nothing more.

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Herman Cain’s “Progressive” Lynching

Multiple unspecified claims of sexual harassment from anonymous sources. Just what a presidential candidate like Herman Cain needs to brighten his day.

Don’t be concerned that one accuser currently serves as a communications director at the Inspector General’s Office of the Treasury Department, a position she has held since last year. A member of the “progressive” administration leveling charges against a Conservative political opponent? There’s nothing to see here folks. Zero possibility of conflict of interest.

Never mind that Gloria Allred pigeon Sharon Bialek, who has a history of financial troubles and legal squabbles, who has been described as a complete gold digger; the day after making her accusations enjoyed her fifteen minutes of fame spending her waking hours smiling her way through the morning TV rounds. This is just business as usual in reality TV America. There is absolutely nothing out of the ordinary about this. Perhaps if she plays her cards right she’ll get a shot at a Kardashian style wedding scam someday.

Never mind that Bialek lived in the same Chicago building as top White House aid David Axlerod. That’s purely coincidence. She just happened to live there. Big deal. You know, like the current White House occupant just happened to live in the same neighborhood as 1960′s Weather Underground radical and unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers? Nothing to worry about. That was ”handled” by the “progressive” Party Pravda back in 2008 when they demonstrated full blown journalistic incompetence by repeating the “progressive” campaign’s claim that Ayers was “just a guy who lives in my neighborhood” ad nauseum.

Don’t concern yourself with the fact that Bialek met publicly with Cain just a month ago at a Tea Party event, an encounter witnessed by WIND radio co-host Amy Jacobson, who described it this way: “It looked sort of flirtatious,I mean they were hugging. But she could have been giving him the kiss of death for all I know. I had no idea what they were talking about, but she was inches from his ear.”

Forget about Bill Clinton’s “gift” from Monica Lewinsky. Never mind the cigar or the stain on the blue dress, or that before his election, Clinton exposed himself to Jennifer Flowers and Paula Jones. That was all A-OK. Those cases were clearly instances where Clinton was demonstrating great courage on behalf of all men. In the interest of “progress”, Clinton was waging a personal battle against trivial charges of sexual harassment.

Unless you’re a Conservative. Then it’s a completely different story.

First, “progressive” political enemies attack like hyenas (FYI, hyenas devour their prey without killing it first), then false accusations fly with even greater frequency than the current White House occupant going to a fund raiser. Next the “progressive” Party Pravda kicks into high gear repeating the smears and the lies. Truth be told, the same “news networks” that mostly ignored Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades devoted an incredible fifty stories to the Cain allegations in just the first four days.

Welcome to post-partisan America, obama style.

Welcome to Herman Cain’s “progressive” lynching.

Herman Cain Better Be Telling The Truth


Oh, Herman.  Why did you double down so forcibly?  I hope Cain’s innocent, really I do.  Tuesday’s press conference gave him little wiggle room.  Within the first 1 minute and 45 seconds, Herman Cain said that he saw Sharon Bialek for “the very first time”, that he “doesn’t even know who this woman is”, and that he “doesn’t recognize her name at all”.  By the 2 minute and 20 second mark, he had repeated that he didn’t know who Sharon Bialek is and that he didn’t recognize her name.

I hope that’s true.  We already know that he saw her in September of this year, but that might have been the only time he’s ever seen her, and he may honestly have forgotten about it.

But when you think back to Sharon Bialek’s original press conference, Sharon was very, very specific in her accusations.  Here’s some of the transcript from that press conference.

“I took the train into Washington, D.C. When I went to check into the room I was shocked to be taken to a palatial suite. I said to the bellman that there must be some mistake, but he insisted that there was no mistake. I later found out that Mr. Cain had arranged for the suite, though at the time I thought that maybe my boyfriend had tried to surprise me.

“I met Mr. Cain in the lobby of the bar at the Capitol Hilton at around 6:30 p.m. We had drinks at the hotel, and he asked how I liked my room, which is kind of normal, and I said I was very surprised. I said, I can’t believe it, I’ve got this great suite, it’s gorgeous. Mr. Cain kind of smirked, and then said, ‘I upgraded you.’

“He then took me to an Italian restaurant where we had dinner. During dinner, Mr. Cain looked at me and said, ‘Why are you here?’ I said, ‘Actually, Herman, my boyfriend, whom you met, suggested that I meet with you ‘cause he thought you could help me because I really need a job. I was wondering if there’s anything available at the state association level or perhaps if you could speak to someone at the foundation to try to get my job back, perhaps even in a different department.’ He said, ‘I’ll look into that.’

“While we were driving back to the hotel, he said that he would show me where the National Restaurant Association offices were. He parked the car down the block. I thought that we were going to go into the offices so he that could show me around. At that time I had on a black pleated skirt, a suit jacket and a blouse. He had on a suit with his shirt open. But instead of going into the offices, he suddenly reached over and he put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals. He also grabbed my head and brought it toward his crotch. I was very, very surprised and very shocked.

“I said: ‘What are you doing? You know I have a boyfriend. This isn’t what I came here for.’ Mr. Cain said, ‘You want a job, right?’

“I asked him to stop and he did. I asked him to take me back to my hotel which he did, right away.”

Here are some of the details just from that transcript:
She said that she stayed in the Capitol Hilton
He upgraded her room to a suite.
She met him in the lobby bar for drinks
They went to an Italian restaurant.
She had on a pleated skirt.

When you listen to her tell the tale in her press conference (that the transcript above is from), she really seems to be making specific accusations and “recalling” specific details.  When Herman Cain says that he doesn’t even know who Bialek is, he’s denying a LOT of things.  So, if even ONE of them is true, it casts a lot of his testimony into question.

If any one of the things Ms. Bialek claims is proven to be true, then Herman’s goose can be cooked.  (hotel records, credit card records, etc…)  I feel that Mr. Cain took a very big gamble by saying he had did not even know who Sharon Bialek is.  I think it would have been a safer bet for him to say he’s “not sure” if he’d ever seen her before, but by making such adamant claims, he’s really given himself little recourse in the event (or if) he’s ever proven to not be telling the truth.

Of course… if he IS telling the truth, then his gamble may likely pay off.

What do you guys think?  Did Herman take too big of a risk by saying so adamantly that he did not even know who Sharon Bialek is?  Should he have been more vague and just said that he “didn’t recall ever meeting her”?  Or, should he have “put his chips all in”, as it seems he has?  What would you do, if you were accused of wrong doing by someone on national TV, for that matter?  I’m not sure what I would do, if I was in that situation, myself.

As always, let us know what you think in the comments below.  I know a lot of you are tired of this conversation, but we’re trying to choose a leader of the free world, and part of the process is gauging how candidates do under pressure.  And right now, I’d say Herman Cain is under pressure.

 

Sharon Bialek: Why Women Like Her Are A Danger To Us All

The world now has the name of at least one of the “anonymous” women accusing Presidential Candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment.

As I sat watching the presss conference yesterday, I went from rolling my eyes, to angry, to being literally sick at my stomach, all the way back to being angry again.

Why would this make me angry, you ask? Why can’t I simply chalk it up to what some would consider an attention seeker, and what others will simply call a liar? Let me explain why. But, let me warn you, if you like nice little stories, this is not one you want to read. This is the perfect time to exit this article.

For those of you who have not left, and would like to know why Sharon Bialek has made me so angry, we have to travel back in time a bit. We have to go back a bit further in history than the 15 years Sharon Bialek is talking about.

The year is 1987- a full 10 years before the alleged Cain-Bialek incident. There was a young girl, naive in the ways of the world, yet thought she knew it all. She was what most would call a “good girl”, but not for the typical reasons those words are used to describe a young lady. For the most part, she did what she was told, got good grades, and stayed out of trouble. What her parents did not realize what she had a sneaky streak a mile wide and 100 miles long – a streak that would change her life forever.

One Saturday night she spent the night with a friend. While her parents knew the parents of this other girl, they were not real close, and did not know the troubled past of the other girl.

That night, the girls went to the skating rink. Now, that might not sound like a big deal to you, but to this young girl, this was a bit of the “forbidden fruit”. She had never gone to the skating rink without her parents, so for her to be able to go “hang out” at the skating rink with a friend was almost too good to be true. You could tell she was a bit uncomfortable in her surroundings, not quite knowing exactly what to do.

Her friend’s boyfriend had met them up there, and after introductions were made, further plans for the night began to shape up. The friend said to her boyfriend, “We have to find someone for her!” The girl was very adamant that she didn’t “want” to have someone “found” for her. Throughout the night, the boyfriend pointed out a friend of his, asking what she thought of him. None were of interest to her, and she kept saying no.

The night at the skating rink ended, and the friends’ dad came to pick the girls up. They went home to hang out like all girls do when they spend the night with friends.

Several times throughout the night her friend had talked about “when the guys picked them up”, or “when we sneak out”. She told her friend she was not going to sneak out. She was rock solid, never wavering in her answer. There was absolutely no way she would sneak out. She knew she had no business outside in the middle of the night. But her friend kept piling on the peer pressure. The closer to midnight it came, the more pressure was put on. She continued to say no.

When her friend decided she would go with or without the young girl, it was an awkward moment. Then the fateful words were spoken. “If you are really my friend, you’ll go with me!”

And she gave in. Against her better judgement, she heaved a very heavy sigh of reluctance, and climbed out the window. She was a klutz, so simply getting outside was an adventure in and of itself.

The girls walked down the long, dark road, one silent, one very animated. She knew she shouldn’t be here. She felt the dread in her heart heavier than anything she had ever known. However, she was a true friend. She would always be a true friend. So she would put on a brave face for the night.

Little could she have known that a brave face was what she would need to get through the next decade of her life!

At the end of the dark, country road was the intersection to the main road going through their little town. On the corner was a church. This was the meeting place. The “guys” were to pick them up at the church. The girls waited, and waited, and waited. The meeting time passed. After much discussion, she finally convinced her friend that they should go back home. So they started walking back up the same long, dark country road they had walked down. They had not made it far when they saw headlights. The car stopped. It was “the guys”.

The friend’s boyfriend was driving, and he had indeed brought “a friend” along with him. She climbed awkwardly into the backseat with him, and shyly said hello. Her friend was laughing and telling her boyfriend how they thought the guys were not going to pick them up, and they were headed back home. They were driving around, going nowhere in particular. After a short time, they turned down a bumpy dirt road, pulled up in the rough circle that had been made by many cars before them. The driver parked the car, turned off the ignition, and turned the key over so the music would still play.

The occupants in the front seat immediately turned to each other and began making out.

She was in the backseat, all alone with a “guy” she had never met before, and had no clue what to do. She knew she was not going to make out with him, she didn’t even know him. He was talking to her, inviting her to move closer to him. She didn’t want to be rude, but she was already close enough to be able to smell the beer on his breath. To say she was uncomfortable is an understatement.

He was nice enough, at first, but seemed to be bothered by the fact that she wasn’t as aggressive as her friend was in the front seat. He even made a comment about how well the two in the front seat were getting along.

She can’t remember exactly how things progressed to the point it had, but she was now beside him, facing him. It happened so quickly. She remembers being very uncomfortable with it, and even more uncomfortable when he began kissing her.

If you asked her parents or others who knew her, they would say she was quite “boy crazy”. She always talked about liking this boy or that boy. But this was not the innocent little girl liking a boy in her class. This was something very different- something very grown up. She was not ready for anything like this, and she knew it!

While she knew what kissing was, and had already had her “first kiss”, remember…. she was very naive- and again, I stress naive! You can imagine her surprise when things took an abrupt turn in the back seat, and the “guy” was no longer kissing her, but was pushing her head to his crotch. All that kept going through her mind was, “What is he doing??”

Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for her to find out what he was doing, but she did not understand what he wanted her to do. When he forced her to do what he wanted, she was so shocked and surprised she literally began to gag and choke. Fighting to regain control of her breath and her senses, she bit him. This made him angry. He decided to do things differently.

She was quite relieved when he pulled her up, expecting to just sit back quietly. However, he had other things in mind. Her world immediately went into a tailspin when he threw her on her back, across the seat. She struggled against him, fighting to sit up. He was much bigger than she was, so though she tried desperately to defend her innocence, she was no match for him. In one swift move, he slapped her face, she reached up to touch where he had hit. And her innocence was gone.

She laid there crying, praying for it to end. What was her friend doing? Why wasn’t she helping her? Surely they had heard- and felt the car moving- as she struggled against him. But they were too busy doing their own thing to take notice of her.

Her face stung where he had hit her. She didn’t fight back anymore, just hoping it would end soon. She tried to ignore the searing pain that ripped through every fiber of her body, concentrating instead on the song that played on the radio. She clung to every musical note and every single word. Until the day she dies that song will have a hauntingly beautiful place in her heart. If she hears it today, she instantly goes back to that night, yet, it is her comfort.

Once it was all over, he simply pushed her aside. In a daze, she sat up and redressed. She realized that her clothes were wet where he had spilled beer on her.

The occupants in the front seat had ended their festivities, and had sat up and redressed. Everyone was talking and laughing at this point- that is, everyone but her.

What seemed like forever, but surely couldn’t have been more than an hour or so later, the “guys” finally dropped them off back on the dark country road once again.  After a hearty round of goodbyes from everyone- except for her- the girls got out of the car to head home. As she got out of the backseat, her legs wobbled and she nearly collapsed. She quickly collected herself, stood up, and began walking away. She never looked back.

It was difficult for her to walk. She was in so much pain. She didn’t fully understand everything that had happened to her. And here was her “friend” beside her, chattering away about how much fun she had that night. It suddenly became apparent to the friend that she was not so excited, and the friend asked what was wrong.

In an instant, she whirled on the other girl who she had once called “friend”.

With anger she never knew she was capable of, she spat back at the girl, “HE RAPED ME!”

~*~*~*~*~

I am that girl. When I was 14-years-old I was raped.

While I can tell the story in great detail, I can assure you I can never be so flippant and lighthearted in retelling it. I know what happened to me. I will never forget. I don’t have to have “the story” written on a piece of paper. If I am telling what happened to me, I don’t have to find my place on a page. I can pick up the story at any point and tell it just the same.

It is true, Sharon Bialek was not raped. However, I have my doubts as to anything she said. Her attitude is not one of a woman who was nearly assaulted, even if it is 15 years later.

Yes, there will be those who say that everyone reacts differently. That is true. It doesn’t make her story any more believable.

You will never be able to convince me that Herman Cain attempted to assault Sharon Bialek. In her story, he simply accepted her negative response and let it be. If a man is truly intent on taking advantage of a woman, assaulting her, raping her, or whatever other term you want to put to it, a simply, “You know I have a boyfriend” is not going to stop him.

Was Herman Cain ever inappropriate with her? Quite possibly. But highly doubtful.

Ms. Bialek has already cast doubt upon her trustworthiness in the story she’s told. Shame on her!

It is because of women like Sharon Bialek that ladies everywhere- young and old alike- who have been assaulted, go through the hell we have to go through to truly heal after such a horrible experience. It is bad enough to have it happen to you. It is even worse to have women claim something that happened to them when it did not.

It is because of women like Sharon Bialek that men everywhere- young and old alike- are never safe from a false accusations. At any point in time, if an accusation against them comes up, more often than not it comes down to exactly what the Cain-Bialek case is: Her word against his.

It simply comes down to who does it “benefit” as to whos story is accepted and believed.

Sharon Bialek and women like her are dangerous to us all.
