  • Obama Spends Christmas Eve Golfing in Hawaii

    12/24/2011 8:07:40 PM PST · 16 of 24
    Wild Irish Rogue to Nachum

    ” Obama was joined at the Klipper course at the Marine Base Hawaii in Kaneohe by old friends and Hawaii locals Mike Ramos, Greg Orme and Bobby Titcomb,...”

    As it was noted here at the time ( April 2011 ) and generally ignored elsewhere:
    “One of President Barack Obama’s oldest friends has been arrested in Honolulu on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute.

    Robert “Bobby” Titcomb was one of four men arrested in an undercover prostitution sting operation Monday evening ...”
    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/obama-friend-bobby-titcomb-arrested-prostitution-sting/story?id=13317891#.TvamNZjOFaU

    Imagine George Bush continuing to brazenly associate
    with a dirtbag like this.

    ” Does Bo get to go to Hawaii and not be quarantined like other dogs who go to Hawaii? “

    Hawaii now has a quasi quarantine 5 days or less procedure now.
    http://hawaii.gov/hdoa/ai/aqs/aqsbrochure.pdf
    Dogs have to have rabies vaccines no less than 90 days and no more than a year before arriving.
    Paperwork from vet must be sent beforehand.
    Microchipped.
    A blood sample must be sent to one of two US testing labs ( DOD and K State ) 120 days prior to arrival to insure dog
    has responded to rabies vaccine.
    All dogs have to go to the Holding Facility for some period ,
    those that have fulfilled the above steps are supposedly released
    in less than 5 days.
    Other dogs have to stay in quarantine for 3 months.
    I could guarantee Bo didn’t spend two seconds at the Holding Facility.
    I wonder if they crate Bo or if he is free to roam about the cabin
    of whatever extra jets we pay for ?
    They flew him on his own jet to Martha’s Vineyard ,
    so Air Bo is entirely plausible.

    ” Yeah, I do believe him. I mean, unless he truly IS SUPERMAN and did all those girls while he had stage 4 cancer. “

    The first four women accused Cain when he was at the NRA in the late 1990s.
    White and Cain both agree that their relationship ( his words ) began in 1998.
    Cain was not diagnosed with Stage IV Colon and Liver cancer until 2006 , when he had surgery and began chemo .
    His last treatment , according to his book, was in Jan 2007 and he said he has been cancer free since then.

    ” We have yet to get all the details of the last one.”

    Cain , though , did admit to having what he described as a friendship / relationship with Ginger White.
    Cain also said that Mrs Cain was unaware of this friendship until yesterday , which begs the question as to why he felt the need to keep it from her.
    Cain said he had only given her financial help , again without Mrs Cain’s knowledge .
    Plus, she had his personal cell phone number and he hers.
    Most married men would have their clothes on the front lawn
    and the locks changed by now.

    If Herman can’t convince her to become a Republican , what shot does he have with millions of strangers ?
    Herman himself didn’t see the wisdom of joining the Republican Party until he was 50 and almost out of the business world.
    Cain has said he has voted for Democrats in the past and he supported Bill Clinton in 1992.
    Cain and the handful of black Republicans are the exception and will never be the rule until blacks themselves

    Wild Irish Rogue to Mr. K

    ” 3 years and we are just NOW hearing about Obama’s gay boy toy? “

    The NYT actually had a very eyebrow raising story on Reggie and Barry during the 2008 campaign.
    When I read it, I seriously thought that they were preparing Americans for our first gay president.

    NYT May 27 ,2008
    On The Court And On The Trail One Aide Looms Over Obama “
    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/27/us/politics/27reggie.html?pagewanted=all
    Bells went off when I read this passage :

    ” Mr. Love, who played football and basketball at Duke, usually starts the day with Mr. Obama with a dawn workout
    in the hotel gym.
    They end the day more than 15 hours later,
    often unwinding before bed
    by watching ESPN’s “SportsCenter”
    or that night’s big game.
    (Mr. Obama sometimes flosses his teeth to ESPN while lying down.) “

    Here’s an earlier article :
    Nov 2007 “ Obama’s body man keeps him fit, fed and hydrated “
    http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2007/11/obamas_body_man_keeps_him_fit.html

    “Reggie Love makes sure the water bottle is always full,
    the PowerBars are stocked and
    that the boss gets out of bed on time for his daily exercise regimen. “
    One can only imagine how the 25 yr old Reggie got Barry out of bed.
    There are tons of pictures of the two of them together
    and Barry always looks euphoric..unlike when he’s photographed with Michelle.

    This may explain why Barry preferred Reggie to Michelle.
    Barry was raised in Indonesia by a gay transvestite nanny.
    The New York Times broke the news to the world last November
    as Barry was preparing to go to Indonesia.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/09/world/asia/09indo.html

    ” the young Obama, ....was exposed to another aspect
    of Jakarta’s diversity.
    “ His nanny was an openly gay man “ who locals said had an affair with the neighborhood butcher.
    “ The nanny later joined a group of transvestites called Fantastic Dolls,
    who, like the many transvestites who remain
    fixtures of Jakarta’s streetscape,
    entertained people by dancing and playing volleyball.”

    A book about Barry’s mother revealed that the nanny , named Saman , slept in the same bed as Barry.
    “ Saman said, he and Barry were preparing to go to sleep.
    They often slept in the same place,
    sometimes in the bunk bed in Barry’s room, sometimes on the dining room floor or in the garden.”

    ” He’s put more than a million of his OWN money into pro life causes..”

    I believe that is a myth.
    The original LifeNews article describing Cain’s involvement in the million dollar ad buy for America’s PAC
    was poorly constructed and ambiguous.
    It implies that America’s PAC paid for the ads , but, describing it
    as a “ Cain backed “ group could give the impression
    that Cain was the major donor.

    The America’s 527 PAC filing is here http://www.campaignmoney.com/political/527/americas_pac.asp

    The Republican Leadership Coalition contributed almost a million
    to the PAC in 2004.

    Cain’s name does not appear in the contributions ledger.
    And I’m sure he would often mention a contribution of a million dollars if he had done so.

    Cain did do voice overs for the pro life ads.
    The expense side lists this :

    ” Cain’t problem of being “misrepresented” is with Herman Cain. “

    Agreed .
    It’s hard to imagine that Block doesn’t confer with Cain
    before making announcements.
    The Cain campaign has become the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.
    Cain today contradicted Block’s walk back on Perry
    and reiterated on Hannity
    that he is convinced the leaks
    came from the Perry.
    The whole focus on the leaks is a red herring.
    Just like when the Democrats went berserk and tried to provide cover
    for Clinton by blaming Lucianne Goldberg and
    Linda Tripp for leaking about Lewinsky.
    Leaking information is different than making something
    up out of whole cloth.
    The fact is that two women accused Cain of inappropriate behavior.
    And were paid off by the NRA .
    One for 30k and the other received 40-45k.
    The original Politico story reported on a possible third case ,
    unrelated to the woman who spoke to the AP yesterday.

    “Cain, .....did tell at least one campaign staffer this year
    about the possibility that claims of sexual harassment could surface,
    according to the aide.
    Cain, ...., described a case in which he fired an employee in 1990s
    and the woman alleged sexual misconduct
    or harassment.
    Cain told the campaign staffer he had won the case
    and that the woman had paid his legal fees.
    The aide had no further details. “

    This case sounds like it was a court case or some type of litigation
    which Cain said he won,
    separate from the two settlement cases.
    How could Cain have ever imagined these cases
    would have remained hidden
    in a presidential election ?

    Wild Irish Rogue to BarnacleCenturion

    The source is the Cain campaign.
    Without any documentation.
    First the leak was blamed on the Romney campaign because
    the new CEO of the NRA had contributed to Romney..and also
    apparently to Cain.
    Then it was the Perry campaign.
    Now, it’s Rahm Emanuel.
    Kinda reminds me of the Lewinsky years when the Democrats
    made Linda Tripp the boogeyman
    to deflect from Clinton.
    The central questions should be
    are the charges true and
    is there a pattern ?
    Cain said an investigation by HR at the NRA exonerated him.
    He should ask the NRA to release the results
    of their in house investigation ,
    while concealing the identities
    of the accusers.
    To continually cast about for leakers to blame
    does not absolve Cain.

    finally came from Politico-and they gave him 10 days notice that it would -
    he could have said;
    “ The charges were baseless and I have asked the NRA
    to waive all confidentiality agreements.
    With the identity of the complainants kept secret.”
    Cain is now using a variation of it depends
    on what the meaning of “ is “ is
    by saying he originally expressed ignorance of “ settlements “
    because he only thought
    there were “ agreements.”
    Joel Bennett told CNN tonight that it was his understanding
    that a board member of the NRA tipped off Politico.
    Another pundit said that this came to light
    for the board,
    when they recently began discussing
    whether to endorse Cain.
    Some board members informed the rest of the members
    about the settlements
    and discouraged the endorsement.
    There are 90 to 95 board members nationwide
    it would have been impossible to contain
    this once they all knew.

  • Cain responds to sex harassment allegation

    Wild Irish Rogue to Kennard

    In the corporate world, preventing accusations of sexual harassment
    is an enormous focus of upper management
    and HR and the legal department.
    Sexual harassment is taken very seriously
    and is not tolerated in the workplace.
    Period.
    Employees from top to bottom are drilled on proper workplace behavior.
    Many make employees must attend a yearly seminar where the
    code of conduct is reviewed.
    Every large company has an employee manual on appropriate workplace behavior.
    Most corporations, probably smaller businesses ,too,
    have compliance procedures already in place for dealing
    with accusations against employees ,
    ranging from counseling
    for the first offense
    and more punitive measures, including firing , thereafter.
    Many of us have been through the yearly drill.
    Cain should have known better than to put himself
    in any type of situation
    that could be construed as harassment.
    The fact that the company paid off the women and silenced them ,
    makes it seem like much more
    than “ Mr Cain said I looked pretty.”
    And if it was something innocuous , Cain should have said so.
    If he had been a lower level employee, in today’s ( and the 90s )
    corporate environment
    Cain would
    probably have been fired after
    the second accusation surfaced.
    Most companies have a strict zero tolerance policy about
    this because of the possibility of lawsuits.

    ” I wanna see if these board execs can be traced to a campaign, or if they were just trying to extort more money out of him.”

    From the article a lot of people in the industry and at the RGA knew about the accusations and the settlements.
    The women probably told co workers at the time.
    One woman’s new employer told Politico that he
    knew about the settlement.
    Politico has seen the legal settlement papers from the women themselves
    and knows their names.
    You can’t keep a lid on something like this when so many people
    know about it and the women involved are willing to talk.

    ” Romney or Perry behind this? Take your pick. “

    Nope.
    A former board member contacted Politico.
    “ The first woman was identified to POLITICO
    by a former association board member
    and her identity was confirmed by two additional sources.”
    This particular board member was not told about the Cain settlement until he or she attended a board meeting and
    trade expo in 1999.
    The board member was upset that he or she wasn’t aware of the settlement earlier.
    “What I took offense at was that it was clear that rather than deal with the issue, there was an effort to hush it up.
    She was offered a way out to keep quiet.”

    ” uh huh a man forgets about something like this? RIIGHT! “

    Cain has to know that he was accused and that the Board of the Restaurant Association settled the complaints.
    But, he said he “ could not comment “until I see some facts
    or some concrete evidence.”

    The Politico article multiple sources ,
    it’s a lot more than Anita Hill’s solo and unwitnessed silliness
    against Justice Thomas.
    Cain obfuscated , but , refused to deny that he had
    ever been accused of sexual harassment
    when confronted this morning by the media after
    appearing on Face The Nation.
    Politico has seen the settlement papers and knows the names of the women who accused Cain
    and how much they were paid by the board .
    This was barely 10 years ago and the legal counsel
    for the Restaurant Association would have interviewed
    Cain to get his side.
    A Cain aide seems to describe the case of a third woman .

    ” ( Cain ) did tell at least one campaign staffer this year
    about the possibility that claims of sexual harassment could surface,
    according to the aide.
    Cain, this person said, described a case in which he fired an employee in 1990s and the woman alleged sexual misconduct or harassment.
    Cain told the campaign staffer he had beaten the case
    and that the woman had paid for his legal fees.
    The aide had no further details.”

    In 2004 , Cain supported an exception if the life of the mother was threatened.

    In 1998 , he supported multiple exceptions.

    “Too many people in the electorate are single-issue voters,” he commented, “and to try and cater to the single-issue voters

    As an example, with the pro-life and pro-abortion debate,

    ” I ‘m sure you understand that if American blacks ever stop voting in lockstep for the Democrat party, that is the end of that party forever? “

    is not going to change that dynamic.

    time and time again.
    It’s their choice .
    Giving them a tax break is not going to make them conservative.
    In fact, it might reinforce that they get special deals.
    Cain is more educated and worldly than the average citizen in the inner city
    and even he didn’t become a Republican
    until age 50 in 1996.
    And that was only because he was insulted and derided
    when he had lunch with Jack Kemp

    “ African Americans “ living in inner cities.

    ” Do you have a source to that’s where and how Cain spent or contributed his $1,000,000 ? “

    The LifeNews article is poorly constructed.
    It implies that America’s PAC paid for the ads , but, describing it
    as a “ Cain backed “ group could give the impression
    that Cain was the major donor.

    The 527 PAC filing is here http://www.campaignmoney.com/political/527/americas_pac.asp

    Cain had been calling them empowerment zones , I don’t know what he is calling it this week.

    Cain said they were still working out the details .
    “ Instead of in a designated empowerment zone, it being 9-9-9,
    it could be, as an example
