Herman Cain: A Final Word

Herman Cain: A Final Word
By Lloyd Marcus, Proud Unhyphenated American

I would not blame Herman Cain if he said, Lloyd, I know you mean well brother. However, the relentless vitriolic media attacks against me have finally subsided since I dropped out of the presidential race. My family and I are finally having some peace. So, why on earth would you bring up my name again?

Well, in a nut shell, I just did not like the way the whole “Cain Thing” went down. Also, we live in a fast paced news cycle, carelessly nuke a person's life and in two days everyone has moved on, disposable world. Herman Cain's courageous bid to serve his country deserves more than, “Cain, wasn't he the black dude sex fanatic who ran for president as a Republican?”

OK, Cain is gone and we conservatives must focus on selecting our candidate to defeat Obama in 2012. I got it. But, it breaks my heart seeing what happened to this “good man”. Cain was attacked from both sides of the aisle. A few conservative pundits even accused Cain of not seriously seeking the Oval Office, but simply seeking self-promotion.

Please do not get me wrong. I realize playing with the big boys in the national arena is tough. I just did not realize how much tougher and blatantly unfair it is for conservatives. As a conservative seeking to win the Republican presidential nomination, Cain endured a deep rectal vetting not even required of our current president. As a matter of fact, we still know very little about Obama's history.

Obama is a liberal. Thus, the liberal media deems probing Obama's history, associations and even using his middle name to be racist.

As a black conservative myself, I was excited about black America meeting Herman Cain – a brilliant black businessman who loves God and country. Cain's message was a refreshing breath of fresh air; a striking contrast to the absurd victim/entitlement minded garbage coming out of the mouths of too many successful rich blacks who say - Yes, we are multimillionaires, but America is still racist, sucks and owes us.

Unfortunately, here is how this great black role model was introduced to much of black America. My 84 year old dad phoned me, “Do you know this Herman McCain who is involved in all these sex scandals?” I replied, “His name is Herman Cain, dad”. I then proceeded to tell my dad about the great man I know.

Think about this folks, Cain's candidacy and reputation, in the minds of many, was destroyed by unproven “he said, she said” allegations. Please do not come back at me arguing about whether or not Cain was qualified for the office. I am not talking about that. I am talking about the no-holds-barred, nothing-is-off-limits or over-the-top relentless campaign to destroy this decent man.

Good Lord, the allegations went from “possible” sexual gestures to Cain supposedly forcibly reaching under a woman's skirt. Since Cain has dropped out of the race, all of his accusers are gone. Imagine that.

Something has gone terribly wrong in our country folks. Meanwhile, the mainstream liberal media are deaf, dumb and blind regarding all of the huge elephants in America's living room unfavorable to Obama. Why? Because Obama is their rare Teflon ticket to making all of their progressive, anti-America and socialistic dreams come true.

While I “feel” for brother Cain, I am fully confident Herman Cain will be OK. Remember, Cain beat cancer. Using his faith, character and infectious optimism, Cain will find a way to make extraordinary lemonade using the Left's lemons (their evil attacks against him).

Wow, I may have just come up with a brilliant Capitalistic, sorry Occupiers, entrepreneurial marketing idea. Famous Amos sells his cookies, Rush Limbaugh sells his tea; how about Herman Cain Lemonade?

Brother Cain, I just want to say one more time how much millions of us truly appreciated and thank you for stepping up to save our great country. You led the pack for a reason, your business sense, optimism, character and love for America. You and your family remain in our prayers.

Another reason I know Cain will be OK is because referring to Christians, the Bible says, “No weapon formed against us shall prosper”.

I am sure the Left, Obama administration and the liberal media were dancing to the classic Martha Reeves and the Vandellas hit song, “Dancing In the Street”, the day Cain withdrew from the race. But mark my words, God “ain't” done with Herman Cain. Not only will his extraordinary life and story continue to positively impact millions, his success will reach unprecedented levels.

Take that you arrogant godless left-wingers. Lemonade anyone?

Old Republican Bulls Fear Newt Gingrich Because . . .

By Robert S. Walker
The Washington Post
December 22, 2011

Robert S. Walker, executive chairman of the public policy firm Wexler & Walker, represented Pennsylvania’s 16th District in the U.S. House from 1977 to 1996. He is an unpaid adviser to the Gingrich campaign.

After Newt Gingrich rose in the polls, criticism of the former House speaker began grabbing headlines. But Republican establishment attacks on Newt are not new. Newt’s political career has been devoted to mounting a conservative challenge to the establishment’s desire to play the Washington power game of go along to get along.

As a junior congressman, Newt founded the Conservative Opportunity Society (COS), a group of activist members of Congress whose goal was to challenge the liberal welfare state but whose first target was the Republican establishment in the House of Representatives. The “old bulls” who dominated the party in the House had become quite comfortable in their minority status and saw little chance they would ever become a majority. Newt and the COS knew that, to create a true conservative agenda, the party needed to focus on becoming a majority. We used the House floor and C-SPAN to promote our ideas. We attacked spending bills and efforts to expand government, some of which the establishment had endorsed. It reacted by telling newly elected members to stay away from those COS guys because they are trouble.

Tea Party: Only With Courage Will We Defeat The Giants

Tea Party: Only With Courage Will We Defeat The Giants
By Lloyd Marcus, Proud Unhyphenated American

Some may say, for crying out loud, Lloyd. You're as bad as Tebow. Must you always interject God and the Bible into everything? Well folks, it is just who I am.

Canaan was God's “Promised Land” to the Israelites. Upon their arrival, Moses sent twelve spies to check out the land. All twelve spies reported that the land was beautiful and awesome. Ten of the twelve spies fearfully said the land was possessed by giants which they could never defeat. Only two spies believed they could defeat the giants and claim the land which God had promised to them. Interestingly, God described the lack of faith by the ten spies not simply as negative, but evil.

Brother and sister tea party patriots, I believe Divine Providence inspired the Tea Party movement to restore America from it's path of cultural and moral rot. Thus, we have the power to take back America, which was founded on Biblical Principles, from the Progressives, Socialists, Communists, Marxists and Occupiers.

The “giants” in our scenario are an anti-America president Obama with a billion dollars to spend on his lie-filled reelection campaign, and a sycophant liberal mainstream media openly committed to his reelection and goals.

Please do not misinterpret what I am about to say. I am not endorsing Michele Bachmann or any candidate for that matter. But I heard a conservative say, “No, we absolutely cannot select Bachmann because she is unelectable!” I ask, Why is Bachmann unelectable? What has Bachmann said or done that is so crazy or stupid? What did I miss?

In reality, because the “giants”-- i.e., the mainstream media – have labeled Bachmann “extreme”, conservatives fearful of Obama being reelected have disqualified Bachmann.

The “giants” tag team of the Obama administration and the liberal media who have successfully taken Cain out of the race, will repeat this process, destroying each of our candidates until the last candidate standing is the moderate they really want to run against Obama – namely, Mitt Romney. They know that Romney is a clone of John McCain, whom Obama defeated four years ago.

What is my point, you ask? My point is I am sooooooooo sick of our side forever playing on defense, allowing the left to control the language, empowering them to set the rules of engagement, and making decisions based on fear.

We conservatives are the good guys! Yes, I believe that God is on our side. Conservatism is unarguably best for all Americans. The liberal agenda is evil.

Here is an example of allowing the left to call the shots. During a Republican Presidential Debate on ABC, the candidates were basically asked if they knew what it is like to be poor. Each candidate began defending his or her success. The liberal moderator's question, which would never be asked of a democrat, was rooted in the stereotype that Republicans are rich white racists. Also, hidden in their question was “class envy” which is the main strategy of Obama's reelection campaign. Meanwhile, mega-rich Democrats such as the late Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have never been asked to defend their wealth.

When did poverty because a virtue and crucial to being a good president?
In response to the liberal moderator's when-did-you-evil-republicans-stop-beating-your-wife style question, I would have loved for one of our candidates to have refused to play their game; to refuse to apologize or defend his or her financial success.

Speaking of controlling the language, a conservative pollster suggested that we refrain from using the term, “Capitalism” because it turns-off the Occupiers. This is yet another example of “allowing the inmates to run the asylum” – that is, operating out of fear. Capitalism is not a dirty word. Why should we surrender to the Occupiers allowing them to make it dirty?

God has designed life in such a way that success requires risk and backbone. In life, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Risk-takers experience what Jim McKay of ABC Sports described as, “The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat!” By the way, liberals believe that God's system is unfair and seek to legislate equal outcomes in the name of fairness.

In our quest to defeat Obama, due to his horrific record, we hold the winning hand. Failure would be the consequence of fear. It will require backbone to defeat our “giants” (Obama and his media).

We must not allow Obama and company to select our presidential candidate. This requires that we cease allowing them to call the shots. Conservatives must boldly go and stay on offense in our fight to defeat the “giants”, who currently occupy our great land, in 2012.

The Ultimate Devastating Price of Government Dependency

The Ultimate Devastating Price of Government Dependency
By Lloyd Marcus, Proud Unhyphenated American

The devastating price of government dependency. I witnessed it up close and personal in the late 50s when I was a child. Both of my mom's sisters had five kids each by various men who simply deposited their seed and moved on. Thus, both of my aunts were totally dependent on government. They lived in the projects.

The oldest of five children, I remember when my parents and four siblings also lived in the projects. We moved out to a black suburb when dad broke the color barrier into the Baltimore City Fire Department and became a firefighter.

Still, it was a treat whenever I was permitted to sleep over at my cousins' home in the projects in the exciting city.

The atmosphere at my welfare dependent cousins' home was strikingly different from mine; a subtle sadness which made me feel a little sorry for them. I felt they envied me and my siblings for having a dad who actually lived with us. I remember seeing large cans and boxes of generic labeled foods, peanut butter, powdered milk, meat and cheese. As a child, I felt food was weirdly important to them. My siblings and I could go into our fridge anytime we desired. My cousins' fridge was off limits without permission.

Despite lots of extremely loud talking and laughter in their homes, both my aunts appeared chronically angry and bitter with short explosive tempers. A threat of violence constantly loomed over life in the government projects inside and outside of the home.

If you add up the financial value of what my welfare cousins received for “free” from the government (housing, food and health care) their annual income probably far surpassed that of my dad. And yet, I considered my cousins to be poor. They perceived themselves to be poor as well.

Of my ten welfare dependent cousins, only one remarkably “made it”. He worked his way through college and became very successful. The other nine never ventured off of the government plantation; seduced by the false promise of security. Consequently, they succumbed to alcohol and drug abuse and out of wedlock births. Four of my cousins' lifestyles caused them to suffer early deaths.

Clearly, my two aunts' choices, or perceived lack of any other option but to totally rely on government for their survival, came at a devastatingly high price; the self image and spirit of themselves and their children.

This tragic scenario sponsored by mostly Democrats has been playing out in the black community for at least 50 years.

A black man in the Oval Office affords the Democrats a unique opportunity. They can scream racism whenever anyone disagrees or opposes any of Obama's policies. Thus, his presidency is a golden opportunity to spread their destruction of the black family nationally to all Americans.

Why would the Democrats desire to do this, you ask? In a nut shell, it is all about them. The more Americans are dependent on government, the more Democrats are empowered. Also, the Democratic Party enthusiastically embraces all who hate America. Pure and simple.

The Democrats supported by the liberal media are well on their way to transforming America into a giant government-controlled plantation of dependent lifelong indentured servants.

For example, under Obama, a record number of Americans receive food stamps. Another Democrat tactic to increase the number of Americans dependent on government and voting democrat is to keep extending unemployment benefits which is now up to 92 weeks, almost two years. What incentive is there for the unemployed to aggressively pursue a job when they know they can sit on their butts and receive a check for two years? Rather than Obama reducing ridiculous costly regulations on small business which would create jobs, Democrats and their media partners are pressuring the Republicans to join them in further extending unemployment benefits.

Beginning in public school through college, liberals have indoctrinated our children, teaching them America is unjust, Capitalism is evil, they are entitled to the fruit of other peoples' labors and only government can make things fair and right. Liberal indoctrination birthed the Occupy movement; losers hating achievers and demanding their “fair share”.

Meanwhile, 47% of Americans, almost half the country, are exempt from paying federal income taxes. Despite the rich paying most of the taxes already, Democrats are screaming for the rich to pay more.

But here is my point. There is a scary question on the minds of decent Americans. The question is, have we reached “the tipping point”-- the point where teachers and professors have stolen the minds of too many of our youths; the point where Democrats have made so many Americans dependent upon some form of government handout that a majority of Americans surrender their freedom, liberty and our culture to big government.

Nothing in life is free. While my cousins received free cradle to grave government handouts, they paid a devastating price for their dependency. They lost themselves, their self-esteem, pride and dignity. They lost the joy of success after failure. They lost the pursuit of their dreams. They lost the experience of developing their God given gifts and talents. For perceived security, my cousins willingly remained slaves on the Democrats' government plantation.

Here is what Ben Franklin had to say about folks who worship security.

"He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security."

Due to the lack of American history taught in our public schools, I would not be surprised if a student asked, “Ben Franklin, ain't he the guy who dated J-Lo?”

I do not fear for America because I believe God still has us in His Hands. However, I am extremely concerned that we have culturally and morally lost our way.

Today, it is no longer embarrassing to depend on welfare for survival. Many feel justified demanding government rob the rich to redistribute to them in the name of fairness and compassion. These suckers are clueless to the truth that the confiscated funds go to public sector unions which recycles the funds back to the Democratic Party via union dues.

But here is the rub. You government-dependent junkies do not get of Scott free. Remember, nothing in life is free. You ultimately pay a devastating price for your class envy, laziness, hate and fear. In the process, you lose yourself.

Presidential Race 2012: Imperfect Conservatives Need Not Apply

Presidential Race 2012: Imperfect Conservatives Need Not Apply
By Lloyd Marcus, Proud Unhyphenated American

The criteria embraced by the liberal media, Democrats and some conservatives for selecting the 2012 Republican presidential nominee is quite clear. Imperfect conservatives need not apply. Conservative presidential candidates must have been born yesterday; not having lived long enough to break any of the Ten Commandments, make a mistake, say or do anything stupid.

However, in their short time on the planet, our conservative candidate along with possessing a “perfect past”, must display a masterful expertise of all topics foreign and domestic. Anything less means our conservative guy or gal is an incompetent idiot.

Then, there is the Reelect Obama Liberal Media/Democrat multi-headed dragon which is committed not only to simply defeating our conservative candidate, but beheading him or her and hanging their bloody dead carcass in the public square to discourage all future challengers of Liberalism. Our candidate is expected to flawlessly and masterfully battle this beast, winning every skirmish, lest we chorus that they are not quite presidential material.

Conservative presidential candidates unwilling to wear an “I heart Chaz” t-shirt are homophobic and vehement haters of homosexuals. Conservative candidates not having at least one Kanye West song in their iPod are white supremest redneck Tea Party racists. Black conservative Republican candidates are obviously self-loathing traitors to their race suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

Meanwhile, the requirements for the Democratic presidential candidate are a bit less demanding. The liberal media's and the Democrats' candidate can hangout with self-proclaimed America haters. Their candidate can say America has 57 states and mispronounce corpsman as “corpse-man” and still be considered a genius. He can travel the world bowing to foreign leaders and apologizing for America. He can wreck America's economy, hostilely takeover a private auto company, cram government-controlled healthcare down our throats, bully banks and funnel money to his supporters via government bailouts. A New York Times article reported that the Time's candidate has abandoned pursuing the white working class vote to target entitlement-minded, loser Occupy voters without anyone raising an eyebrow.

Liberal media and Democrats do not give a rat's rear end about the character of their candidates as long as those candidates further Liberalism.

Conservative candidates are expected to have lived flawless lives without leeway to repent, learn and grow.

Peter in the Bible was a cruel tax collector who cowardly betrayed Jesus. And yet, speaking about Peter, Jesus said, “Upon this rock I will build my church.” St. Peter repented, developed and grew into a courageous Christian ultimately dying for his faith. If running for office today as a conservative, Peter's former cruelty and cowardly beginnings would end any hope of him being elected; too much stuff in his past.

Moses began as a murderer. And this religious guy Moses wants to lead his people to the Promised Land. The liberal media would say, “Forget about it; too much stuff in your past!”

Conservative presidential candidate Herman Cain is a gifted businessman of character; never been arrested, saved and created jobs and touched many lives in a positive way. However, some conservatives and the media say Cain is a little weak on foreign policy and has too much stuff in his past.

Conservative presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is really smart. Actually, Newt is brilliant with great ideas to reverse the devastatingly destructive results of liberalism. Newt would eat Obama's lunch in a debate. However, Newt does have his share of self admitted poor judgment calls. Thus, some conservatives and the media say Newt has too much stuff in his past.

Conservative presidential candidate Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has a great record in Minnesota. She and her husband adopted a ga-zillion kids which speaks to her great character. As with all conservative women, left-wing feminists despise Bachmann. If the feminists were true to their supposed mission, Bachmann would be their poster girl; a strong woman successful in and outside of the home. Instead, for reasons I do not understand, an NBC program introduced Bachmann by playing a song about a “lyin' a-- b----!” Bachmann has been attacked for comments she has made expressing her Christian faith. Some conservatives and the media say there is too much stuff in her past.

Conservative presidential candidate Gov. Rick Perry has been super in Texas. Some conservatives and the media say Perry is not the smoothest guy in the world during TV debates, is weak on immigration and has too much stuff in his past; something about a rock on a property rented by his family for hunting which still bears the “n” word, put there many years earlier. Surely, the Texas governor must be a member of the KKK. Bottom line, too much stuff in Perry's past.

The rest of the Republican field of contenders for the nomination have not yet been targeted by the liberal media. Rest assured, whoever rises to frontrunner status will be attacked and discovered to be racist, sexist, homophobic or stupid. The Republican candidate will be stripped naked and made to suffer the humiliation of “gang allegations” by the liberal media. For example. Upon becoming the frontrunner, Cain was declared an Uncle Tom, stupid and a serial sexist by the liberal media (as the knockout punch) by the liberal media.

We conservatives hold our candidates to a high standard. And for that, I make no apology and proudly name myself among you. Still, I believe any of our flawed conservative candidates are far superior to Obama in terms of their qualifications, core values and love for America. So I will not toss every frontrunner into the unelectable trash can whenever the liberal media dictates.

But obviously, some conservatives believe all of our conservative candidates are too flawed with too much stuff in their past to enthusiastically embrace as our Republican nominee. So, let's just settle for the “articulate and clean” RINO Romney, watch him go down in humiliating defeat and buckle our seat belts for four more years of Barack Hussein Obama.

Third-World Illogic: Repealing Ban On Women Drivers Will Result In Fewer Virgins And More Gays


Repealing a ban on women drivers in Saudi Arabia would result in ‘no more virgins’, the country’s religious council has warned.

A ‘scientific’ report claims relaxing the ban would also see more Saudis - both men and women - turn to homosexuality and pornography.

The startling conclusions were drawn by Muslim scholars at the Majlis al-Ifta’ al-A’ala, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council, working in conjunction with Kamal Subhi, a former professor at the King Fahd University.
