  • Call to Arms - All Conservatives Let's Back Newt Gingrich - Calling Palin, Cain & Rush

    This is an appeal to all long-time conservatives. Let's start lining up behind Newt Gingrich, as Thomas Sowell, Art Laffer, JC Watts, Jim Robinson (Free Republic honcho) and others have. The hazzard of holding back an endorsement is that the media, pudits and PAC TV commercials will continue to shape negative opinion against Newt and we may lose our best conservative warrior. The result of the media, pundit and PAC TV onslaught may cause the nominee to be Romney or Santorum. Romney is a moderate and Santorum does not have the experience to Push the conservative agenda in the general...
  • Herman Cain to launch 9-9-9 bus tour

    Herman Cain’s not a candidate anymore, but he’s launching a new bus tour anyway. The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO announced plans to tour the country to raise support for the “9-9-9” plan that was the star of his aborted presidential run, hoping to rally congressional sponsors for his plan to replace the federal Tax Code with a 9 percent corporate tax, 9 percent personal income tax and a 9 percent national sales tax. The one-time Republican front-runner announced his “Cain’s Solutions Revolution” during a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night. “I started a new movement. The biggest...

    Herman Cain appeared on Fox News Wednesday night to make what was billed as a "very big announcement" on Sean Hannity's show. Very big it was not. The former Republican hopeful and pizza chain CEO did not endorse a current GOP candidate, as some had predicted he might. Nor did he announce he was getting back into the 2012 race, as Hannity teased he could. Instead, Cain announced the launch--or continuation--of his 999 economic plan with another catchy tagline: "Cain's Solutions Revolution." "The biggest comment when I ended my candidacy was, 'Keep 999 alive,'" Cain said. "And that's what this...

    Failed GOP White House hopeful Herman Cain, who dropped out after a woman who said she was his mistress went public is staging a comeback of sorts, he announced on Monday--on the eve of the Iowa caucus. "Our mission continues, and we're on fire for 2012 and beyond!," Cain said in an e-mail, highlighting a list of media interviews he has booked. Cain is looking to regain some spotlight in a week heavy with Republican presidential politics--that he is no longer a part of. "....I will soon be announcing a major new initiative.

    If any Republican presidential candidates are looking for last-minute advice before the Iowa caucuses, Sarah Palin, Mitch Daniels, Haley Barbour and Herman Cain have some thoughts. The Washington Post asked the four politicians Palin, the 2008 GOP vice-presidential nominee; Daniels, the Indiana governor who passed on a presidential run; Barbour, the Mississippi governor who also passed on a White House bid; and Cain, who suspended his campaign last month for tips. Barbour wrote it should be all about President Obama and his policies: "If I were campaigning, I'd talk about how his policies have made economic growth and job creation...

Hensler will help the Bachmann campaign with polling, surveying, and volunteer coordination. “Michele demonstrates, more than any other candidate in the race, the conservative principles Iowans are looking for in a president,” said Hensler. “We are excited about the momentum we are receiving for the caucuses and I couldn’t be more honored to join such an organized and driven team.”

    *Despite being ousted from the GOP presidential race, Herman Cain believes that his opinion matters to somebody. So the former candidate plans to broadcast his ideas on TV soon. “The doors to radio or TV, those doors are open,” Cain said in an interview with Fox News, considered by media watchers to be the most likely place the conservative former pizza magnate would go. “I’m considering all of these options because I want to create the biggest platform for me to be talking about the trifecta: replacing the tax code with 9-9-9, energy independence and national security,” Cain said.

Appearing in Cook County Circuit Court in Skokie, Bialek told Judge Jeffrey L.

    Herman Cain is no longer running for president. He doesn't think he's likely to be picked as the eventual nominee's running mate, either. But he does have a Cabinet post in mind should the GOP win the White House next fall: secretary of Defense. [....] Cain shared the idea with ABC's Barbara Walters during her annual special on the "10 Most Fascinating People." And the veteran journalist was just a bit surprised. Cain said he thought he'd be a good pick because he wants to "influence rebuilding our military the way it should be." Walters, still stunned, reminded Cain of...

    Newt Gingrich's campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, which has struggled financially for most of the year, says the former House speaker raised $4 million in the first half of the fourth quarter, when he began climbing in the polls. That's about $1 million more than Gingrich raised in the first five months of the campaign, when he fell nearly $1.2 million in debt, including $450,000 owed to a private jet company. The third quarter was by far Gingrich's worst: He raised just $800,000 and lost more than a dozen staffers who quit en masse in June. But Herman Cain's...

    Karl Rove and the GOP establishment didn’t bother to notice, but the high-tech lynch mob of the media lynched another black conservative last week. The radical left which equals the US media these days thought it set a good example for blacks never to get off that plantation again. The media had a good time with their mob lynching, just like the beer-sozzled demagogues of the old Jim Crow days. Robert Byrd taught them a lot. Ann Coulter is the only conservative I know who laid out the case for Herman Cain’s defense. Herman Cain was simply accused by Axelrod...

    Conventional wisdom is that the Republican presidential field is set, and that it is much too late for a new candidate to enter the race. In years past, that would be absolutely correct. Over the last few decades, dozens of primaries and caucuses have been shoe-horned into the opening weeks of the election year, with the tendency on the Republican side for the front-running candidate to score a quick knockout. But next year, the arrangement of the primary calendar is much different. It is less condensed at the front, much more loaded with events at the back, with the prospect...

    Black Entertainment Television will air exclusive interviews with former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, in what the network calls “a deeper characterization of one of the most controversial black political figures in contemporary America.” In a documentary titled “The Curious Case of Citizen Cain,” Cain will discuss what he calls the “scams perpetrated on blacks” by liberal black leaders, his unique brand of black conservatism, and the sex scandals that ultimately sunk his campaign. After a surprising and sustained rise in the polls, Cain faded amid increased scrutiny of his “9-9-9” tax plan, foreign policy missteps, and allegations of sexual...

    With the Republican field’s first major test just weeks away, the failed presidential bid of Herman Cain is throwing his support behind the current frontrunner. Sources told Fox 5 Atlanta that Herman Cain will endorse the presidential bid of Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Several sexual harassment allegations and a claim of a long-term affair left the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO’s White House bid all but destroyed.

    Dear Friends, Today a friend who sacrificed much in the effort to lead our great country suspended his campaign. I want to wish Herman Cain, his wife Gloria, and the entire Cain Family the very best and God’s blessings as they move forward. Herman Cain’s appeal was that of a Washington Outsider – someone not beholden to the entrenched Beltway interests, and who hasn’t spent his life cutting deals at the expense of conservative principles. As the race goes forward, with the Iowa Caucuses 32 days away, I am truly the only Washington Outsider left in the race. I haven’t...

    Now that Herman Cain is out of the Republican presidential race, we have officially kicked off the phase where everyone reflects on the ups and downs of his campaign. And on This Week today, George Will wasted no time in calling the ex-candidate “disrespectful” and a “charlatan” for using his candidacy to promote his book and not be a serious candidate bringing ideas to the table like everyone else. Christiane Amanpour asked the panel if Rick Santorum had the best chance of getting more support in Iowa, particularly from Cain supporters. Will argued there was indeed room in the GOP...

    Now that both political establishments and the media has driven Herman Cain from the race for the GOP Nomination with empty allegations, that did not measure up to any smell test, the truth of the matter is that Cain was driven from the race because he was not part of the political elite class on both sides along with the media that has selected out candidates since 1993. When Cain first entered the race, both political establishments asked, "Why was he even in the race having never held public office," but even as his unconventional campaign started to appeal to...

    I agree with those who say that, in the end, Herman Cainz has helped his brand: he’ll probably sell more books, get higher speaking fees and most likely wind up with a national radio talk show or a big fat contract at Fox News, perhaps if Roger Ailesz finally boots out the political star who disappointed and frustrated him, Sarah Palinz, when her contract is up: Rob Frankel, author of “Revenge of Brand X,” said the harassment allegations will “go away” and leave Cain with a valuable personal brand. Cain left the Republican presidential race Saturday in the wake of...
