Maybe Herman Cain will be the Next President?

From 9-9-9 To ?-?-?
Herman Cain
J.J. Jackson
Saturday, October 22, 2011
Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan is still receiving a lot of scrutiny. That scrutiny comes from people who either do not understand how to do simple math, who have nothing better to offer or who just want to maintain the status quo.
Recently I warned in a posting on my personal website that Herman Cain should ditch the 9-9-9 plan. But, for the benefit of those who have not read that particular post, that warning was not because it did not work. Because anyone with a calculator, basic math knowledge and the wherewithal to get on the internet and look up the figures to multiply by 9% (consumption of goods, investments, corporate incomes and personal incomes, etc.) can prove to themselves that it does. No, rather I warned him against the plan because it was even easier to demagogue by political hacks than the much better plan, which he also supports, the FairTax.
Not that the FairTax is not without its problems. As I said in my article last week, an article that drew out many non-economic minded individuals who felt compelled to express their lack of knowledge on the subject, the whole “prebate” system with the FairTax is nothing but a sop to the welfare class who would revolt if they did not get a check from the government every month. Even Mr. Cain seems to be against this and that is good, because it appears he and I are on the same page with regards to the national retail sales tax concept but also ways to make it better.
But back to Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan which implements the national retail sales tax on a smaller plan and keeps the existing system of taxing incomes even though, thankfully, at a much reduced rate. Up until now my biggest complaint with the 9-9-9 plan until recently was that it kept the income tax in any form. However, like I have said, it works and is better than the current progressive version of the tax. But now Herman Cain has given me a very pressing reason to rethink my support for his plan.
Apparently 9-9-9 is not really going to be 9-9-9 but rather ?-?-?. If you are confused, let me explain.
In an article defending, mostly masterfully, his 9-9-9 plan against the gripes of those that hate it for misunderstood reasons, Herman Cain confesses that 9-9-9 will not be 9-9-9 everywhere. Yes, sadly it is true. A good idea is heading for a rotten turn and Mr. Cain appears to be succumbing to the gripes of the looters who want to make sure they will be able to bargain and ply legislators for favors. In point number three of his rebuttal, Mr. Cain states that he will soon be adding to his plan, “empowerment zones for economically struggling areas in which the rates will be even lower”.
Oh my! Now 9-9-9, a formerly flat tax, becomes a progressive tax? That pretty much makes the whole plan a non-starter in my mind if Mr. Cain is serious about traveling down this nebulous and dangerous path.
I can see it now! Detroit gets to be a 6-6-6 zone (pun intended) and New York City gets to be an 8-8-8 zone while Cleveland gets to be a 7-8-4 perhaps? Meanwhile you and I are stuck in a 9-9-9 zone still carrying the freight for those that have destroyed society.
My advice to Herman Cain is stop this insanity. Stop it now. It is obvious that this idea of “empowerment” zones is something that he is adding to try and bring on board people who will not come on board unless they get special treatment. Enough!
Are you purposefully trying to scuttle a decent plan?
Stick to your guns. Do not start playing politics now. The fact that you have not done that to date is what has endeared you to many in the GOP. It is just not worth the risk to start “playing the game” now.
Listen to the advice Yoda gave to Luke Skywalker. He warned him not to “start down the dark path”. Because once you do, “forever will it dominate your destiny”.

Herman Cain's 9-9-9: Another Poison Band Aid for Bankers

"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world." --Thomas Jefferson to A. L. C. Destutt de Tracy, 1820. FE 10:175
Presidential hopeful, Herman Cain, came out with his proposal to continue fleecing the American people: 9-9-9. His so called 'tax overhaul' is nothing but more of the same. Another life raft thrown to desperate Americans who want to hear "solutions", but don't know how the problem started.
Cain's proposal is a 9 percent personal income tax, a 9 percent business tax and a 9 percent national sales tax. Double taxation for the bankers - and "its resonating with voters"!
Washington beltway mouthpieces, radio talk show hosts, cable news anchors and his rival candidates are all
chiming in:

Cain's ‘9-9-9’ tax plan hits poor, helps wealthy, experts say: http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/cains-9-9-9-tax-plan-hits-poor-helps-wealthy-experts-say/2011/10/13/gIQAiE3UiL_story.html
"The “9-9-9” plan that has helped propel businessman Herman Cain to the front of the GOP presidential field would stick many poor and middle-class people with a hefty tax increase while cutting taxes for those at the top, tax analysts say."
Cain's '9-9-9' tax reform plan under fire from both left and right: http://thehill.com/blogs/on-the-money/domestic-taxes/186409-cains-9-9-9-tax-reform-plan-comes-under-fire-from-left-and-right
"But conservatives have a different concern – that Cain's plan to install a 9 percent national sales tax, paired with income and corporate taxes at that same rate, would give Democrats a brand new tax stream to try to squeeze out more revenue."
Cain has rebutted the concerns over his proposal which, of course, if elected he would have absolutely no constitution authority to implement under Art. II, Sections II & III of the U.S. Constitution:
HYPERLINK http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=356825 9 responses to 9 false attacks on 9-9-9
Reading Cain's response reminds me of Saint Sarah Palin. Lots of folksy talk, but painfully obvious Cain doesn't have a clue about the intention of those who birthed this republic regarding taxation, which I will get to shortly.
Between exchanging spit over class warfare card and the same old political bickering about Cain's love affair with the number 9, where is any discussion about reducing the size of government by abolishing unconstitutional cabinets like the EPA, "Federal" Department of Energy and Education? Right there we the people would save over $150 BILLION dollars a year - every penny borrowed from the candy store called the "FED". Get rid of the draconian and unnecessary Department of Fatherland (Homeland) Security. A savings of over $42 BILLION borrowed dollars - which goes up every year.
There is no constitutional authority to steal the fruits of our labor to give to any foreign country for any reason, so why aren't the candidates pointing the finger where it belongs - at the outlaws in the U.S.
Congress for not stopping all foreign "aid"? Don't forget: Every penny borrowed from the "FED" has interest tacked on; more debt heaped on our backs, our children and grand children with no future except poverty.
How about abolishing the unconstitutional Department of Health and Human Services raping the American people for social welfare? Hundreds of billions in their budget; every penny will have to be borrowed:
"The President's FY 2011 Budget totals $911 billion in outlays, an increase of $51 billion over FY 2010. The Budget proposes $81 billion in discretionary budget authority, an increase of $2.3 billion over FY 2010 on a comparable basis. HHS’s portion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) addresses and responds to critical challenges in our health care and human services systems through investments that immediately impact the lives of Americans. To fulfill the President's health care vision, the Budget builds on Recovery Act investments and continues on the path to health insurance reform in key HHS priority areas."
A few billion here, a few trillion there when the people's purse is overdrawn $14.8 TRILLION monoply "dollars".
I posted the following in my email alert last Friday, October 14, 2011, regarding the news items below:
Panetta warns of retreat in Africa due to budget cuts: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/oct/13/panetta-warns-retreat-africa-due-budget-cuts/
"Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta on Thursday warned Congress that automatic cuts in defense spending would force the Pentagon to reduce its presence in some trouble spots, including Africa, a hotbed of al Qaeda franchise groups. Mr. Panetta previously raised the specter of a dysfunctional, "hollow" U.S. military if automatic budget reductions force the Pentagon to squeeze out $1 trillion in spending over 10 years."
"How about bringing all our troops home from the unconstitutional invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan? Tens of BILLIONS of BORROWED dollars EVERY MONTH to keep the war machine going in those two countries:
Illegal Iraq, Afghan, Pak Wars Cost US $4 Trillion: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/06/29/us-usa-war-idUSTRE75S25320110629
"Every penny borrowed. More debt heaped on our backs, our children and grand children. For what?
"How about stop bombing the hell out of Libya and the new putrid "foreign policy" of putting our military into Africa, butting in where we do not belong? When hell freezes over - let's keep America drowning in those immoral wars for big profits for another decade:

Civilians killed by NATO airstrike in eastern Afghanistan: http://en.rian.ru/world/20110726/165394250.html
KABUL, July 26 (RIA Novosti) "At least three civilians including two schoolchildren died and six were injured following a NATO airstrike in Kunar province in eastern Afghanistan, regional governor Said Fazlulla Wakhidi said on Tuesday.
The airstrike took place in the Vatapur district late on Monday night, the governor said, after an attack by Taliban fighters on an American military base and battle with NATO troops. A grenade fired by one of the Taliban hit a residential building in the attack, wounding five Afghan civilians. NATO attack helicopters carried out an airstrike in response, but cannon shells from a helicopter hit a school, killing the civilians. At least 1,462 civilians have been killed by fighting in Afghanistan in the first six months of this year, 14 percent more than the same period last year, according to UN human rights officials."
"In Nov. 2010, the people of this country reelected 86% of the same incumbents who have allowed this monstrous mess to continue, all for geopolitical games, the defense industry and oil."
What Cain proposes is just another way to feed the Levethian monster created by the Outlaw Congress while those crooks and cowards continue to kill American jobs through more "free" trade treaties. Cain's proposal is another poison pill that will do nothing but treat the symptoms while the patient is dying on the operating table.
Prior to 1913, there was no "Federal" Reserve banking system - a system in complete violation of the U.S. Constitution. There was also no income tax. The only reason the Sixteenth Amendment was created was to feed that candy store your incumbent and mine need to continue stealing us blind to pay for their insane and illegal spending. While the Sixteenth Amendment clearly was not ratified by enough states, there isn't a single member of the U.S. Congress with the guts to stand up and tell the truth. Not only did the Sixteenth Amendment NOT confer any new power of taxation, the IRS (with the blessing of the thieves in Congress)
continues to misapply the code stealing us blind. Read The Memorandum: http://www.truthattack.org/jml/index.php/about-us/meet-tom-cryer
Let me give you an excerpt from the book, Toil, Taxes and Trouble, by the great Vivien Kellems; published in 1952, pgs 41 - 46:
"Since a capitation means a tax of the same amount for every person, this provision makes doubly sure that all federal taxes must be at the same uniform rate for everybody. This limitation that direct taxes be levied by the Federal Government must be in proportion to a census and apportioned among the States in accordance with numbers, is the only provision in the Constitution that is stated twice.
"The only reason that our Constitution required a census to be taken every ten years was to count the people to determine how many Representatives should go to Congress, and how direct taxes should be levied. I wonder how many Americans thought of this in 1950 when those little busybodies came knocking on their doors, asking ten thousand impudent, silly questions which were none of their, or Washington's, business.
"There is absolutely no power granted in the Constitution which enables a top-heavy bureaucracy of empty-headed simpletons, and worse, to invade the privacy of the American people in such a monstrous manner.
"This census is just a preview of what is really in store for us if they actually take over, which they most certainly will do unless we uproot and vote them out.
"The census was to count the people - that was all. The number of people determined the number of Representatives in Congress and the apportionment of direct taxes among the states.
"For a long time I asked myself, 'Why were Representatives and direct taxes linked together and apportioned among the States in accordance with population?' It was understandable that Representatives should be chosen in accordance with numbers but why should taxes be apportioned the same way? And then one day, out of the blue, it came to me crystal clear. All at once I understood the plan to safeguard the future freedom of the nation, conceived and executed by those scholarly men.
"I read again: 'Representatives and direct taxes shall be included within this Union, according to their respective numbers...' 'No capitation, or other direct tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the Census of Enumeration herein before directed to be taken.' And in those two sentences our forefathers bound fast the hands of Congress and secured the liberty and freedom of the American people. How? By making it utterly impossible to levy an income tax.
"An income tax is certainly a direct tax, probably the most direct tax of all since it cannot be shifted but must be paid by the person receiving the income. By specifying that direct taxes must be levied in accordance with the number of people, not upon what they produced, as in the days of ancient Egypt, an income tax was simply out of the question. It cannot be levied upon a man but must be levied upon what he receives.
"Our forefathers designed and incorporated in the Constitution a new system of government. It was built upon a revolutionary idea; the conviction that the government belonged to the people and existed only by their consent. Its genius lay in the careful system of checks and balances among the three departments, the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judicial. And it went further and maintained a balance between the powers of the individual States and the Federal Government. In addition it carefully reserved to the States and to the people all rights and powers not specifically delegated, or prohibited to the Federal Government and further stated that because certain rights were enumerated in the Constitution it did not mean that others not mentioned were still not the property of the people.
"However everything in the Constitution was arrived at by compromise. The interests and concerns of the thirteen states varied widely and each delegate was sent to Philadelphia to protect the commerce, industry and agriculture of his particular state. It required months of patient discussion, argument and forbearance to finally produce the finished document, which when completed, comprised a system of government to protect the people in the rights and liberties set down in flaming words in the Declaration of Independence. It is a wonderful document, the best system of government ever devised for human beings, but it could have varied in some respects and still have worked satisfactorily......
*******

"The supreme achievement of the combined brains of all those men were written into those two sentences
and the freedom and liberty of the American people were secured in them. For in those two sentences the right of the free man to own something was made inviolate. This was his distinguishing mark, the only criterion of freedom in all the world, the right of the common man to retain for himself the fruit of his labor.
"Now this is how it worked. Every man was given a vote with which he could vote for his Representative. Originally only Representatives were elected, Senators were appointed by the State Legislatures and it's too bad we changed that provision."
"That Representative having to stand for election every two years was close to the people and responsive to their wishes. That is why he was given the power to tax; all bills of revenue arise in the House. And that is why he must come home every two years and give an accounting to the people.
"But his power to levy direct taxes was limited by an ironbound restriction: that tax must be apportioned among the States in accordance with the population. Since all taxes were to be at a uniform rate, Congress simply could not penalize one section of the country, or one group of citizens for the unfair advantage of another.
"When Congress levied a tax, everybody had to pay and at the same rate. The amount would vary with the wealth of an area, as it does today with the different values of real estate, but the rate was the same for all and the tax was distributed among the States according to population.
"The men who wrote our Constitution did not found a democracy. They feared the so-called 'Democrats' of their day as much as we fear the Communists today. They did not believe in mob rule, or government by the unintelligent, irresponsible mass. They founded a republic and they made certain that the right to vote should be curbed and controlled by the necessity of paying taxes. Scheming politicians could not take taxes from a helpless minority and buy themselves back into office with the votes of the tax exempt majority. When a Representative voted a tax, he voted to tax everybody because the tax was based upon numbers, not upon dollars.
"This was the most brilliant plan ever conceived for guaranteeing the freedom of a nation. It protected every
person in his right to private property, rich and poor alike, and under this protection we built the richest, most powerful nation on earth. We achieved and maintained for the majority of our people a standard of living undreamed of before, the hope and the envy of the whole world.
"And we accomplished something even more important: we developed a vigorous, self-reliant, self- respecting race of people. An American citizen would have been ashamed to ask for a handout from his Government. The Government belonged to him, he did not belong to the government.
"And then what happened? We chucked our carefully safeguarded right to own something out the window, and we passed the income tax amendment. Gone was our apportionment among the States in accordance with population, and also gone was our principle of uniformity. Income 'from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration' could be taxed and without limit. And when we passed this income tax amendment the slow, distilled poison of tax slavery dripped into our veins. We sowed the seeds of our national decay which is rapidly coming to maturity before our eyes today. The heritage of freedom so carefully insured for us by our forefathers is gone; it has been taxed away."
Herman Cain seems like a nice man, a patriotic man, but he's in way over his capabilities. Additionally, Cain worked for our enemy, the "Federal" Reserve Banking System, and has never said a peep about the disabilities of our monetary system and why his former boss is responsible for the destruction of this country (with the blessing of every Congress since 1913 - although' some have fought against it like Charles Lindbergh, Sr., Congressman Wright Patman, Ron Paul and a scant few others), or even broached the subject of sound money. Cain was caught in his own lies recently, and please remember as you read this column, The Despicable Lies of Herman Cain, I have no candidate preference and belong to no party.
Everyday my email box is full of comments like: Mickey Mouse vs Obama on the ballot, I'll vote for Mickey. Romney vs Obama, I'll hold my nose and vote for Romney and on down the line. How sad. Just remember this: All bills of expenditure must come from the U.S. House of Representatives, not a sitting president. Candidates can promise you the moon; they do every election. But, look what continues in this country with the corruption and rot coming out of the Outlaw Congress because of special interests, greed and pure insanity as the spending goes on as well as the grotesque, unconstitutional invasions and occupations of Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the bombing of Libya and now U.S. military intervention for tribal squabbles in Africa.
A president can veto spending bills, but how many times have you seen it happen your lifetime to stop unconstitutional spending? Expect anything different in 2012? With the massive anger from voters in Nov. 2010 and the tea party folks - a whopping 86% of the same thieves got reelected. Tens of millions of Americans sent the same crooks, cowards and criminals back to do the same thing they've been doing for decades, but somehow expected a different outcome. Hello?
That's why our last line of defense against the rotting carcass out in Washington, DC, are the 50 state legislatures, nullification, sound money bills and outright defiance of unconstitutional "laws" being shoved down our throats. That won't happen unless tens of millions of Americans become active at the state and local level. Are you doing your part?

Herman Cain: Runaway Slave
By Lloyd Marcus
October 19, 2011
NewsWithViews.com
I keep having images of Herman Cain barefoot, covered in sweat and mud, wearing an old patchwork shirt and hand made burlap pants held up by a rope rather than a belt, out of breath and frantically running for his life; to freedom. Menacing sounds of barking dogs in the distance focused on Cain's scent. Not far behind, hot on Cain's trail, are black overseers determined to keep their fellow black slaves in check for their white liberal democrat massas.
Cain's crime? He achieved success via traditional routes; education, hard work and character. Cain did not use or need Affirmative Action or lowered standards; a clear violation of the left's law for acceptable minority success.
White massas Lawrence O'Donnell, Janeane Garofalo and the Democratic Party leadership have instructed their black “slave control” enforcers/overseers to “Stop Cain! NOBODY, escapes the Liberal Democrat Slave Plantation! NOBODY!!!”
So a posse of black overseers consisting of Harry Belafonte, Tavis Smiley, Morgan Freeman, Al Sharpton and other blacks who are loyal to their white liberal democrat massas are on a mission to destroy runaway slave, Herman Cain.
Why has the left launched a stop-at-all-cost political hit on Herman Cain? The answer is quite simple. Herman Cain represents truth. Truth can be devastating such as the great Oz is only a man behind a curtain pulling levers, Soylent Green is people and the greatest enemy of black Americans is the Democratic Party.
Cain was correct in saying black voters have been brainwashed by the democrats. Black overseers have kept blacks obediently and mindlessly monolithically voting democrat for years despite huge elephants in the black community's living room; over 70% black high school dropout rate, over 70% black out of wedlock births and unprecedented black unemployment under Obama.
Black overseers and liberal white democrats do not want to see a character driven black in the Oval office who will not exploit his race to further a socialistic agenda. They do not want a black Commander in Chief whose life confirms the limitless opportunities for success available to all Americans who choose to “go for it”. The last thing in the world the left wants to see is a black president who does not think more government control is the solution to every problem. They also do not want a powerful black voice celebrating America rather than proclaiming America to be the greatest source of evil on the planet. A black leader who loves and stands up for America, individual rights and freedom petrifies the left.
Obama uses his skin color to insulate himself from criticism as he usurps authority like no other president before him. All opposition to Obama's hostile takeovers is branded racist. Obama preaches his gospel of entitlement; everyone is a victim and everyone is entitled to the fruit of someone else's labor. Again, anyone daring to disagree with Obama's sermons are declared heartless and racist.
As president, Herman Cain would be the left's worst nightmare. Cain would be historic, not as the first black president, but as the first black “leader” to occupy the Oval Office. Cain's Justice Department would distribute equal justice to all Americans regardless of skin color; unlike the Obama Justice Department who said they would not press charges against fellow blacks.
President Cain would be a true celebration of all which has made America great; education, hard work, individuality, character, religious faith and freedom. Such wholesome virtues are deemed corny and repulsive to the left who are typically spoiled brat former hippie rich white kids.
And for this reason, black overseers and liberal white democrats must capture, hogtie and drag Cain's black “n----- a--” back to the liberal democrat plantation where he belongs.
And yes, my personal experience bears witness that white liberals freely call us black conservative runaway slaves the “N” word.

Harry Belafonte Insults Herman Cain—but Hails Fidel Castro
Castro's treatment of Blacks in Cuba
Humberto Fontova
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Harry Belafonte recently denounced Herman Cain as a “bad apple” as a “false Negro” and as someone “denied intelligence” and “denied a view of history” (whatever that means.) His host Joy Behar snickered her approval of Belafonte’s every vocalization, often before they were decipherable.
“If you believe in justice,” vocalized Mr Belafonte in an interview with Cuba’s propaganda ministry years earlier, “if you believe in democracy, if you believe in people’s rights, if you believe in the harmony of all humankind—then you have no choice but to back Fidel Castro as long as it takes!”
If only Herman Cain were a lily-white Stalinist whose regime murdered more people in its first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered in its first six, jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s—including the longest suffering black political prisoners in modern history. If only Herman Cain proposed policies to plunge a nation more prosperous than half of Europe’s into one that repels Haitians. If only he’d driven into exile—even with machine-gunners and Tiger Sharks as dutiful border guards—20 per cent of the population from a nation formerly flooded with immigrants.
Instead Herman Cain spent most of his life creating wealth and promoting freedom. He personifies the antithesis to the disaster and horror known as Castroism. This grates on Harry Belafonte.
“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent,” wrote AWS hero Che Guevara in his diaries. Shortly after entering Havana, Che took a break from signing death warrants and blasting apart the skulls of defenseless men and boys, exhaled, wiped his brow and gave a radio conference. A black listener asked him what the revolution planned to do for Cuba’s blacks. “We’re going to do for Cuba’s blacks exactly what they did for the Cuban revolution. By which I mean nothing!”
“VIVA CHE!—VIVA FIDEL!” roared Harry Belfonte’s friend Jesse Jackson , arm in arm with Castro at the Univsesity of Havana in 1994.
Actually, Che was much too modest. “Nothing” is not an accurate description of Castroite treatment of Cuba’s blacks. Fidel and Raul Castro are sons of a European Imperial soldier (Angel Castro) who butchered Cuban patriots for pay by the King of Spain. Then came the son’s turn. First off, by media manipulation, terrorism and guile (NOT guerrilla war) they overthrew a Cuban government where Cuban blacks had served as President of the Senate, Minister of Agriculture, Chief of Army, and Head of State (Fulgencio Batista a grandson of slaves who was born in a palm-roofed shack in the Cuban countryside.) These blacks had all served elective and appointed office in a nation 72 per cent white, by the way.
Not that you’ll learn any of this from the liberals’ exclusive educational source on pre-Castro Cuba: the
Godfather II movie, which is probably still an improvement over what the Ivy League teaches. Today the prison population in Stalinist/Apartheid Cuba is 90% black while only 9% of the ruling Stalinist party is black. Many of Cuba’s most prominent dissidents today are black, many female. Were they opposing anyone but the Left’s favorite poster boys, the MSM would have made them household names long ago. Think Rigoberta Menchu and Winnie Mandela.
In 1980 Harry Belafonte visited Cuba to collude with Castro’s KGB founded and mentored propaganda ministry for a documentary in his honor titled, “I Look at My Life.” Within walking distance of where Belafonte posed for Castro’s cameras detailing the horrors of life for black Americans, the world’s longest-suffering black political prisoner languished in a torture-chamber.
“N*gger!” taunted his Castroite jailers between tortures. “We pulled you down from the trees and cut off your tail!” Shortly before his
death in 2006, this prisoner, Eusebio Penalver, granted this writer an interview. “For months I was naked in a 6 x 4 foot cell,” Eusebio recalled. “That’s 4 feet high, so you couldn’t stand. But I felt a great freedom inside myself. I refused to commit spiritual suicide.” Eusebio Penalver suffered longer in Castro’s prisons than Nelson Mandela in apartheid South Africa’s.
On another of Belafonte’s almost annual visits to Cuba he again posed for Castro’s propaganda ministry complaining about the stifling censorship in the U.S. “In the U.S. people don’t know the truth,” he vocalized for Castro’s press in 2002.
Within walking distance of his fulminations against U.S. racism and censorship, Black human-rights activist, Dr. Oscar Biscet was being kicked, spat upon, and burned with cigarettes in a Castroite torture chamber. Cuban doctor, Oscar Elias Biscet had been sentenced to 25 years
in Castro’s gulag for public readings of the Works of Martin Luther King and the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights.
Shortly after Belafonte’s Cuba visit in Dec. 2009 the Black human-rights activist Orlando Zapata-Tamayo, was beaten comatose by his Castroite jailers and left with a life-threatening fractured skull and Subdural Hematoma. A year later Zapata-Tamayo was dead after a lengthy hunger-strike. Samizdats smuggled out of Cuba by eye-witnesses’ report that while gleefully kicking and bludgeoning Tamayo, his Castroite jailers yelled: “Worthless N*gger!—Worthless Peasant!”
Apparently Castro’s KGB-founded and trained police regarded all of the above blacks as “bad-apples.” And surely the MSM kept you as informed about this half century of racist horrors 90 miles from U.S. shores as they did about Nelson Mandela’s travails, 8000 miles from U.S. shores.

Herman Cain: A step above other GOP candidate
A vision for Economic growth
Felicia Benamon
Tuesday, October 18, 2011
Once in a while, there comes a candidate that “up and grabs you” by the collar and demands you listen to the urgency of the time, the urgency of problems facing our nation. That person is Herman Cain. No politician he is to me, he represents the working man.
The straight-talking presidential candidate is leading the presidential pack with his common sense approach to our nation’s problems—Cain has grabbed the attention of the American people. He is able to connect with a large base of people who recognize the soundness and straight forward approach of his ideas.
Mr. Cain is a man who has earned and worked his way to the top. He is a man with business experience who will know a little something about economics—to pull our nation out of this slump. He is someone who respects free enterprise, and believes in the individuals’ ability through creativity and innovation to create jobs, wealth, and prosperity—not putting together useless “stimulus” packages that benefit no one in the long run.
CBS senior political reporter Brian Montopoli writes, “Certainly, the simplicity of his message - most notably, of course, in the form of his “9-9-9” plan - has captured primany voters’ attention.”
Of course in the same article, he questions whether Cain is knowledgeable enough to hold the high position
from statements Cain has made before.
There is no perfect candidate, and presidents make mistakes. But assuredly, America needs a man who is in tune with and believes in the American people without making empty promises. Someone who has a plan. Someone who believes in America and her ability to pull herself out of the mire.
I’ve heard Cain reference former president Ronald Reagan, America as the “shining city on a hill.” He elaborated and said, “…but of late, that shining city on a hill has started to slide down the hilltop.”
Everyone knows running for president takes money. Cain has so far raised 2.8 million over the summer and has 1.3 million currently. This is a man who, to me, takes little resources/funds he has (compared to his competitors) and makes much use of it wisely. He has certainly passed the pack of top contenders who have far more to spend and are using more methods to reach voters.
People are looking for a candidate that is not tied to big money and Herman Cain is it. He does it his way and is having success at it. That is the mark of true leadership.
You will expect no political correctness from this candidate. Yes the GOP is not immune to the political correctness trap. If you want a no-nonsense man leading this nation, Herman Cain is that person who needs no-nonsense support behind him.
Montopoli continued: “Cain is essentially throwing out the playbook in favor of a seat-of-the-pants, cash-poor, lightly staffed operation that is leaving political insiders scratching their heads. If Cain is able to win the nomination, he’ll not only shock the political establishment, he’ll forever alter the way the political game is played. He might even shock himself.”
Agreed!
I believe America is ready for someone with fresh, new ideas ( Herman Cain’s 9-9-9: A vision for Economic growth: Video).

It’s time to put on our big boy pants and get to work to support Herman Cain in this critical hour!
