I really thought that many of the GOP candidates had far less sinister ideas than the first two I wrote about that I really consider communists. Our GOP candidates are so much farther to the left than was Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy in 1960 who at that time was considered to be an extreme liberal. How far we’ve come in 50 years!
Herman Cain is supposedly a Tea Party favorite, but most of the Tea Party folks I associate with are wise to the real Herman Cain.
Cain was born in Memphis, Tennessee on December 13, 1945, but was raised in Georgia. His mother was a cleaner and his father was a chauffeur. He graduated from Morehouse College in 1967 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics and received a Master of Science degree in computer science from Purdue University in 1971, while he was also working full-time in ballistics for the U.S. Department of the Navy. He is an American businessman, politician, columnist, and radio host from Georgia. He is best known as the former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. He is a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Herman lives in the Georgia suburbs and is the minister of a Baptist Church.
The Federal Reserve
Most conservatives believe the Federal Reserve needs to be eliminated and is unconstitutional. As well, there’s been a recent push by Ron Paul to get the Fed audited. Herman doesn’t think the Fed needs auditing and stated there is nothing to find. He is a staunch defender of the central banking system.
But what we want to know Herman is just exactly how the Fed handled the financial crisis. Herman has also stated that the Fed is not unconstitutional because it was created by a congressional statute in 1913 by that progressive leader, Woodrow Wilson.
After the uproar regarding his stance, he flip-flopped…so common with politicians. So, which is it Herman?
Herman Cain Supported Romney
Here’s what Herman said when Romney was running for President in the primaries for the 2008 election, “Anyone who wishes to find a reason not to vote for Romney can easily find one. But the reasons to vote for him are far more compelling. He has successfully managed a real business with other people’s money and some of his own. He has balanced budgets. He successfully led a turnaround situation with the Olympics. And he has spent more of his career outside government than inside.”
Herman was and still is a strong supporter of TARP which we see as one of the worst public policy atrocities since LBJ’s programs, not to mention the corruption and debt. He stated it was good economics and the Bush information on the financial crisis was sound. Seems like he didn’t listen to the electorate and didn’t hear them on radio when they called in against it.
Herman says the Patriot Act is 90% right on. He doesn’t tell us what he feels is wrong with the other 10% that isn’t good, but he still sides with it. How about the constitution Herman? Ever read that? What about the fourth amendment to the Bill of Rights Herman?
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
In 2007, FBI Director Robert Mueller admitted to abuses of the Patriot Act. In fact, there were more than 1,000 instances of the FBI misusing the law, according to the Washington Post. [Herman Cain would trade liberty for security]
Mr. Cain can’t tell us his foreign policy on Afghanistan until he says, “he takes office.” He said he didn’t want to second guess Obama’s handling of the war, saying he didn’t have enough information to make a definitive statement.
Cain is for “expanding school vouchers and charter schools” and says “a critical component of improving education in our country is to decentralize the federal government’s control over it.” He has written that the establishment of the Department of Education “took control of education policy and curriculums away from local school districts and the states and placed it in the hands of unaccountable bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.”
Mr. Cain is either on the side of Obama with Charter schools or he’s greatly deceived. If you don’t understand what the problem with Charter schools is, here are excerpts from: “The Dirty Little Secret of School Choice & Charter Schools”
By O. Jerome (Jed) Brown – 1995
Choice/Charter schools destroy the electoral process and the rational-bureaucratic structure that has worked for 200 years and would continue to work if people would stop voting idiots into office, holding those they vote in accountable. Yes, Choice/Charter schools will alter the politics and government of education so that our schools are in sync with the New International Orders.
Instead of proper public policy being effectively administered under the old social contract, schools are to be ineffectively administered by site-based councils under the terms of their charter. In other words, schools are to be governed chaotically, by consensus of group of unqualified people according to their international charter under regional authority. The new social contract also gives each parent the right to choose any school for his child, as long as it meets or exceeds these international standards of mediocrity.
The words of John Chubb and Terry Moe, of The Brookings Institute and Stanford University respectively, would have gotten them an invite to a tar and feather party — “Our guiding principle in the design of a choice system is this: public authority must be put to use in creating a system that is almost entirely beyond the reach of public authority.” (Politics, Markets and America’s Schools, 1990)
Second Amendment and Gun Control
In an interview with the infamous Wolf Blitzer, Cain stated that he was pro-second amendment, but that it should be up to the states. Well now, wait a minute…is he saying he believes our federal constitution’s Bill of Rights should be decided by the states, that they are not the entire country’s restrictions on government and for the people? The Bill of Rights is NOT subject to state approval.
Here’s what Jazz Shaw, author of this article said about Cain’s statements during this interview and I agree with him, “The other possibility, though, is that he’s one of those “Constitutional” conservatives who rejects the entire idea that the Federal Bill of Rights should be applied to the states. Ron Paul believes this, and it’s one reason I’m not entirely a fan of his either. Is this Cain’s position? Does he believe that, not just the 2nd, but also the 1st, 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th Amendments shouldn’t apply to the states? Some clarification on this issue would be most helpful.”
Muslims in the Cain Administration
After coming out strongly against Islam and appointing Muslims to his cabinet, Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain reversed course completely. Pressure came from the PC crowd and Muslims’ Advocacy groups and he caved saying he’d appoint Muslims to his administration and to judgeships.
Security and Prosperity Partnership or NAU
Cain has been one of the CEOs on the North American Competitiveness Council almost since its creation. This is the think tank for promoting the agenda of the Security and Prosperity Agreement Bush signed with Canada and Mexico which gives up our sovereignty and erases our borders with those countries by establishing the North American Union (NAU). Cain appears to be in favor of free trade. He favored the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in 1993, saying “Free trade is not a zero sum game… Everyone can benefit.” On trade with China, he says that “China is not the problem…Our economic growth is the problem. If we can start to grow in a robust fashion, we won’t even have to look back at China.” His suggestion for stimulating economic growth is to cut the top corporate tax rate from 35% to 25% and “take the capital gains rate to zero.” I like that, but Herman…there are no jobs here because they’re now all in China!
He is on numerous boards, and many of the people that are members of the Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission repeatedly show up on the same boards. Cain is friends with the Koch brothers who pose as libertarians but attend the Bilderberg group meetings. The Koch brothers support Cain for nomination and he is their puppet. They are behind, “Americans for Prosperity” and are connected to both the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations. We’ll discuss the Koch brothers another time.
If you scroll down, the last name on the list in the Competitive Council is Herman Cain. To validate this is Herman Cain, here is a website with a picture of Cain celebrating the grand opening of a Whirlpool distribution center.
American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)
In August of 2009, Herman Cain spoke to ALEC, which I wrote about in Part 2 of Saving the Republic? Richard Mellon Scaife has allegedly funded ALEC to the tune of more than 7 million dollars. One must remember that Scaife funds both sides of the aisle and is connected to Rockefeller (Chase Mellon Bank). Scaife also recently had a full page ad in the WSJ stating why it was so important for taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood and what they do for American women. ALEC writes nearly all of the bills for state legislatures. The danger in the ALEC organization is that its leadership apparently wants to rewrite our Constitution and they claim a membership of 2,500 plus of our 7,500 legislators. Members of ALEC include the Church of Scientology, which has spoken at ALEC meetings. ALEC is pushing for a constitutional convention which is by far the biggest danger in America today.
Herman Cain and a Constitutional Convention
Cain often substitute hosts for radio personality, Neal Boortz and like Boortz pushes the Fair Tax which is a consumption tax. However, Boortz also pushes a constitutional convention to rid us of the 16th Amendment (income tax) when the fair tax is passed. Boortz is a lawyer and you’d think would understand the danger of a Constitutional Convention. To open a Con-Con would mean taking the entire constitution down and all of it could be changed. Can you imagine the delegates that would be appointed or the involvement of Feinstein, Reid, or Pelosi?
Remember too that a New States Constitution is waiting in the wings written at a cost of 25 million dollars over 10 years by the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations. This New States Constitution eliminates all unalienable God given rights and makes any rights privileges granted by the federal government. Boortz states we need a convention to rid ourselves of the 16th Amendment, but we didn’t need a constitutional convention to get rid of the 18th Amendment which was the prohibition of liquor…we simply had another amendment (21st) which repealed the 18th!
James Madison made the statement only a year after the original convention in 1787 that he trembled at the thought of a new convention with the many dishonorable politicians itching to change the constitution only one year later. We need to force the congress criminals to obey the constitution we have, not allow them to destroy it and make one that perfectly fits their New World Order agenda. Herman Cain is a staunch promoter of the Fair Tax, but a Constitutional Convention is the final death Knell of the United States of America.
Once again, I have to say, Herman Cain is not a constitutional conservative and is definitely not my choice. I thought he was better than the previous two candidates I wrote about, but after doing the research, I’m appalled at how much he is like the typical establishment Republican. Is there anyone that would lead us out of the NWO mire we’re in now? I’ve come to the conclusion that unless we get on our faces in the dirt and pray like we’ve never prayed before for our beloved nation, that we haven’t a chance of turning this mess around. The powers in place will not allow a constitutionalist to win, but with prayer anything is possible. I don’t just mean a five minute chat with the Almighty. I mean heartfelt, tear stained prayer of repentance, sorrow and broken heartedness for our nation wherein we ask God to help us. Can we be saved like Nineveh? See the Book of Jonah.
