Herman Cain - Liberals worst nightmare come to life. Checkmate bitches.
Amen, and he’s got a bother named Thurman. How cool is that!
oops meant brother.
Well...there goes the fake wind in THOSE sails...WTG Herman.
You know tonight Karl Rove is trying to figure out where this all went wrong. They (media and political class) still don’t realize America doesn’t trust them. They think we can’t see the yahoos that are elected now and they want us to believe a person like Cain, an accomplished, friendly, God Fearing, fighter is some how more imperfect than men and women who have spent America into the ditch. Well regardless of what someone thinks of Cain he has shown he takes the fight to them and artfully or not can win in ways that blow their minds.
“You know tonight Karl Rove is trying to figure out where this all went wrong”
That is too funny. Bwahahahahahaha. Go Herman. Go Newt.
The libs absolutely despise the Koch brothers because they won't give up their fight against government energy rationing in the name of global warming. Cain and Perry embrace the energy industry and should both be commended for it. Our lives literally depend on it.
I’ve made that point to my liberal friends. Unlike Soros the Koch Brothers have created American jobs throughout the country and many different levels. Now I’m not saying I know or agree with everything they do but they aren’t lining up behind all the usual suspects in the political word and they have been instrumental in Wisconsin and other places in getting real conservative change. They most certainly are not the enemy.
lol It’s so good to see America shaking off the chains and the knights of the establishment getting hoisted on their petards.
Cain nails it again....and with style and panache
They are also major supporters of the opera in New York City. The State Theatre in Lincoln Center now bears their name. It’s wonderful to see conservatives involving themselves in the arts. If only more would do so, the world would be a better place.
I agree entirely. I love the arts as long as tax payers aren’t fitting the bill.
What I like about Herman. Not only is he compatible with these conservative businessmen, he is with them all the way! If you are not a fighter, America doesn’t need you! Love it.
Yes I do to. They expected him to run, to hide, to play the Romney game and to reverse course. Herman just hits the gas peddle and says ‘git the hell out of my way or I’m gonna run your ass over’.
Koch Industries made secret sale to Iran, report says
So he’s proud of this huh. Read the report. Not pretty.
A hit piece from the liberal “business insider”. I’m not saying that the allegation is impossible, but the Koch brothers are attacked all the time by the left.
Really then why did they pay a fine from the U.S Government.
BI? There are a lot more sources then BI..You do know that Americans for Prosperity is one of their groups (ie: Soros and his numerous front orgs)
Billionaires in a battle for control. Yuk.
Ok, post a link about the fine.
We can’t post bloomberg.
but they are all there.
corpus wrongful death suit.
The Kochs have a fact sheet or something. They have their panties in a wad over this report. but no one is retracting.
From what I can tell at the Koch site they have an op just to keep bad publicity out of the public light.
Must be why they $2 million,iirc, to buy that award they got from caroline Kennedy Schlossburg and a Trump.
You do know they are libertarians right.
From the conclusion:For six decades around the world, Koch Industries has blazed a path to riches -- in part, by making illicit payments to win contracts, trading with a terrorist state, fixing prices, neglecting safety and ignoring environmental regulations. At the same time, Charles and David Koch have promoted a form of government that interferes less with company actions.
For six decades they have had some faults, the first two were rectified. The middle is minor, the latter two should be viewed in the context of a large business operating for decades which will make some mistakes. One tragic, but very few relatively speaking. Any similar large company could have a rap sheet compiled against it if these reporters so desired.
I appreciate your response, but it’s actually a moot point now. Obama, U.N etc. Are working on Sanctions that will apply to the Koch European companies also. Think that’s political? ummmm yeah.
BUT. I don’t think the deaths of two teenagers in Corpus should be dismissed so cavalierly.
“environmental failures are rather old and represented a tiny fraction of their business.”
I’m sure the parents haven’t forgotten.
Sorry, I wasn’t clear. The environmental failures referred to wastewater and other discharge measurements. There were many thousands of such measurements over the years and some percentage will exceed regulations. The important thing is how it compares to similar companies and no such information is given in the article. As to the deaths of the teenagers, that was tragic as I said. I don’t think it is necessarily related to the other failures, there is not enough information to make that judgement. The jury verdict on the deaths is enough information, although the article doesn’t mention that Koch was granted an appeal and then settled, probably for about 1/3 of the verdict as the family had originally asked for 100 million,
