Cain Surrenders To The Slime Machine Of The Political Industrial Complex

Published by at 2:58 pm under 2012 Elections

I did not think Cain would cave, but he did. Which means politics in America is now controlled by the elite of the Political Industrial Complex.

Since that is the case, this blog will be suspending its interest in  parties and politics as well. Since the system is rigged against Main Street, no need to waste my time pretending our views matter.

GOP – you will not see any support from the Strata-Sphere. Your on your own. I seriously doubt I will even vote, let alone lift  finger for any of the DC insiders now running. If someone like Palin or Cain jumps in I will reconsider. But listening or challenging the vacuous dribble that passes for political debate is just a waste of IQ points.

Instead I will focus on science, law, ethics (if we can find any) and current events. Which means I will keep covering the economic mess left by the Democrats while noting there will be no assistance coming from the meek and impotent GOP. I will keep covering Climategate, along with other failed conspiracy theories. Will keep an eye on Fast and Furious and other gross crimes against our citizenry from the powers that be. But politics reeks right now and I just tool a shower.

I have seen 30 years of changing out who is sitting in the deck chairs of the ship of state, and have realized that as long as the Political Industrial Complex decides who gets to sit in the chairs and not the voters this nation is screwed. We are still heading for the same iceberg because we cannot get someone like Cain or Palin by the rabid guard dogs covering for those who are up to their elbows in our tax dollars.

  1. And now, AJ surrenders as well, even as Obama plans to double down on the class warfare.

    So Cain has fallen. Is there still any doubt that one of Romney, Perry, or Gingrich is still a huge upgrade over Obama?

    This was never a battle to be won over one or two election cycles. This is a campaign that will take decades.

    Hey Harold! Glad to see you back.

    I just don’t see any point in pretending we have a voice anymore.

    Hope things are well with you. Stop by some more please.

    Herman Cain is supposedly going to endorse Newt Gingrich tomorrow. (monday)

    heh – I wonder what kind of deal he made. You know he ain’t givin’ it away for free!

  5. AJ,

    I can understand the frustration. Believe me – when I see a darn good candidate being ruled out by a good chunk of the GOP in favor of a repeat of a fiasco like Angle in NV or O’Donnell in DE, I wonder if it’s worth it.

    But then I think about just how much of a disaster Obama has been, and I figure it’s best to put he disappointment aside, even though my suspicion is that the REAL reason that Romney may not win is because of the M word (Mormon).

    Pining for Paul Ryan. I am afraid Obama may win again.

    I wish Herman would announce he’s going to be Palins Veep and he has been her placeholder so the rest could be vetted.

    Only way to defeat the machine is to use their tactics against them!

  8. Mike M. says:

    I’ll admit that it would be VERY interesting to see Palin jump in. I think she would be hailed the nominee by acclamation.

    But Romney’s problem isn’t being a Mormon, it’s being a Liberal DamnYankee. His record as Governor is that of a center-leftist. He’d be a fine opponent for Obama…in the DEMOCRAT primary. He’s a Republican only by the warped standards of the urban Northeast.

    I’ve heard a lot of people express doubts about his policies. I’ve never heard anyone mention his faith.

  9. WWS says:

    Palin’s not getting in because she doesn’t have the fight in her that most of her admirers wished she had. She’s on the gravy train now, raking in the cash, and she’s obviously decided that’s as much as she wants.

    If she had wanted to run, she would have. The field was open for her, and she turned it down.

    She *can’t* jump in now because she has raised no money and built no organization, and she doesn’t have those because she chose not to do the work it would take to get them. The primaries are starting in about 4 weeks, and it’s just too late for anyone else to jump in anymore.

    I am no fan of the GOP machine. But would lay blame to them with regards to Cain. Herman Cain is in charge of Herman Cain. He choose how to handle his campaign. He failed to account for some of the most basic threats, that being his failure in his personal life.

    Given what happend in the Clinton era, how in the name of common sense could he have not forseen problems. To top it off he denied charges and now has to back up and admit to them.

    I do like Romney or Newt. They are both old guard GOP status quo. Newt talks a good talk and a lot of Republicans are swooning at his words, just like Democrats swooned for Obama.

    Trump may run, then Obama will win. We are in trouble folks, big trouble!

    Former NRA Chairman: Herman Cain didn’t know Sharon Bialek

    Posted by The Right Scoop on Dec 6, 2011 in Politics | 18 Comments

    The former NRA Chairman, Biff Naylor, who hired Herman Cain says that Sharon Bialek was terminated before Herman Cain was even hired and thus he never met her. On top of that she propositioned him (Naylor) for dinner once because she thought he was handsome, which he promptly turned down as he was happily married.

    Naylor also says he knew the other two that said Cain harassed them, and that whatever they took exception to was so minor that it wasn’t even reported to the executive committee or the board.

    Asked where he was three weeks ago when all this was going down, he says he was fielding calls from the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal, but none of them ever reported with any substance what he told them.

    When asked about Herman Cain’s character, he had nothing but great things to say about Cain.

  13. WWS says:

    Now although I think Bialek’s complaint was overblown, the idea that they never met doesn’t pass the smell test.

    If they never met, why did the Restaurant Association pay her a settlement? Do they have a policy of paying off any random person who walks up and asks for money? No one pays off someone when they have the option of walking into court and saying “hey, look at our records. They never met.”

    And if she was given a settlement for being harrassed, but by someone else, how come neither Cain nor anyone else (like Naylor) said anything about it?

    Cain has enough problems, he doesn’t need guys like Naylor going out and telling easily falsified lies to try and “help” him.

    p.s. – Naylor’s explanation for why he didn’t say anything until this was over doesn’t pass the smell test, either. If he was so fired up about helping Cain, why didn’t he call up Breitbart, or any other alt-media? But it looks like he just sat on his hands until he knew it was too late for his claims to be checked out.

  14. Frogg1 says:

    You’re confused, WWS. Bialek never made harassment charges against Cain and never got paid any money. She’s the one who said she had dinner with Cain and he touched her inappropriately in a car.

  15. WWS says:

    oh, she was the one with gloria alred. Okay, that was always a joke, but I don’t think anyone took that seriously. He got past the harassment claims, anyways – it was hiding the 13 year affair that finally got to be too much, especially when added to his embarrassing replies to questions about Israel and Libya.

    He was a southern revival preacher type, and I guess for people who haven’t seen them much he was something very novel and appealing. Those guys are good, they’re *always* good! They know how to make a crowd stand, and chant, and sing, and come up to the altar to announce their repentance. For someone who’s used to old fashioned revival preaching, it’s very familiar, and Cain just took that act and turned it to politics.

    Also, if you look at the timeline, I think it’s obvious that the news of the 13 year affair was big news to his wife. That’s why he had to promise to quit running around on this campaign and stick around the house more. I don’t doubt that she told him, “you quit or I split!”
