Herman Cain -vs- The Nameless Women On Halloween


Appearing On The Record with Greta Van Susteren Herman Cain said that one of the women accusing him of sexual harassment claims he compared her height to that of his wife. He said the woman was in his office and he just mentioned that she was the height of his wife. This perhaps, he said, made her uncomfortable. He at the time thought nothing of his comments. Later, he said general counsel of the National Restaurant Association, where he worked, made him aware the nameless woman had made sexual harassment allegations against him.

Cain said he asked that the nameless woman's charges be investigated. Cain said he recused himself from investigating the case. An internal investigation of the charges rendered them baseless. He said there was a settlement and it could have been a severance package deal. He also noted that he was informed by general counsel that the nameless woman had expected a huge payout.

So far this story sounds like a he said she said. Sure women and men view what is considered sexual harassment differently and it is a dangerous minefield out there. It's anyone's guess what will be said. But for me, there are too many unanswered questions from the earlier story reported by Jonathan Martin of Politico and his unnamed sources.

These unnamed sources of the media should to end. Innocent lives are destroyed by this type of nonsense. Keeping this story going there is yet another nameless woman out there, according to Politico, who has also claimed to have been sexually harassed by Cain.

The only good thing about all of this is Cain is being vetted unlike some candidates elected to office.

Herman Cain's Implausible Spin

Herman Cain -vs- Left Liberal Media


It was only a matter of time before the left wing liberal media launched an all out attack to impugn Herman Cain's character.

Sexual allegations.

How dare Cain forget his place!

I am waiting to find out who the accusers are. And while there seemed to have been a settlement of sorts (could have been a severance package) there is no admission of guilt or wrongdoing on Cain's part. But this hasn't stopped the left from suggesting Cain is guilty. The media has found Cain guilty because the National Restaurant Association settled with the women. Mind you this was not a legal court settlement. If these women felt they were done wrong, why not file an official complaint in the courts? Besides, it seems the accusers claim certain gestures made by Cain offended them. He could have very well waived good night to them and they thought it to be sexual harassment or said they looked nice for the meeting they were all attending.

Jonathan Martin, the reporter from Politico, who broke this story is yet to say if he spoke to the women making the allegations, so how are we to believe what is being reported by him is factual? Martin has said that he interviewed people from across the nation for the story. Really, across the nation? That many people involved, and what do they have to do with the allegations? How do we know they aren't disgruntle employees of Cain? Furthermore, if the settlement was private how did Martin get this scoop? Where is all of the information needed for readers to make an informed decision? The old "according to confirmed sources" or 'sources with knowledge of what happened." This to me is always a red flag and should be a red flag to anyone wanting to know the real story.

What I find really offensive about Martin's story are comments he made on Anderson Cooper Monday night. Martin told Cooper that stories had been flying around Washington DC since the summer about inappropriate sexual behavior of Cain. Really? Cain only got on the liberal media radar recently. Also Cain recused himself from investigating the charges and allowed general counsel to investigate.

With the little information (hearsay) we have, I think this entire thing is much-to-do-about nothing. It is possible this is another attempt by the left to a covertly put down a conservative black man.

Get use to it folks there are conservative blacks and they are here to stay and multiply!

Occupy Wall Street: Lost In Translation

$5million so far and counting is the bill New York City has to foot as a result of Occupy Wall Street. Some will say the number is inflated. Perhaps it is, but the fact remains the number will continue to grow as long as protesters are camped out in Zuccotti Park and the New York Police Department has to watch over them.
It’s time protesters of Occupy Wall Street start practicing what they protest, or their message of Wall Street corruption will be lost.

I have written extensively about the Occupy Wall Street protesters, who for the past month been camped out in Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan. (http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-681253)
Entering its fifth week, the Occupy Wall Street protesters were facing an eviction. Friday morning Brookfield Properties had planned to kick the protesters out of the park citing unsanitary conditions that needed to be addressed.
However, what could have been the worst day for the protesters and possibly The City (with arrest and injuries) was averted. At the eleventh-hour, Brookfield decided not to evict the protesters, and the NYPD along with the City breathed a sigh-of-relief. So for the time being the protesters will remain in the park. How long is anyone’s guess.

In any event, if the park owners want the protesters to leave the privately owned park so it can be cleaned, they _ the protesters _ should leave. It is a privately owned park with rules and regulations among them “no sleeping” or “overnight stays.” Yes, people are sleeping, eating and dancing in the park but that doesn't make it dirty. Actually, the park is rather clean, all things considered. (http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-686266).

By staying in the park and refusing to leave aren’t protesters doing exactly what they are accusing Wall Street of doing usurping authority? Not only that they _ the protesters_ could be viewed as disregarding the request of the people (surrounding businesses who want them out).

The Occupy Wall Street protest is more than just an occupation of a park. Some have said that if the protesters leave the park they’ll lose their energy. Really? So the energy from the group is a park? What happens when the group has to stage a rally? The energy should be the people having one goal and a message of “We The People!” and not “We the Park.” While I understand the need to have a meeting place for protesters to come and share ideas, why wouldn’t a rented space called “Occupy Wall Street Headquarters” suffice?

The protesters’ concern should not be over a space to camp out and sleep but rather a place to rally the troops and share or collect ideas. Just the other day hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons said he would personally bankroll the sanitation efforts of the park. Wouldn’t that money be better served renting an office space for the protesters? All the celebrities who have visited the park surely can muster enough cash to rent a space for the protesters if they _ the celebs _ really and truly believe in the protest cause.

Again, the protest is more than just a camp out in a park. If the protesters are serious about their cause, one would think they would graciously turn the park back over to its rightful owners for a cleanup.
This standoff of the protesters leaving or staying will eventually take attention off the alleged misdeeds of Wall Street and onto the arrest of protesters wanting to stay in a park. Doesn’t make much sense.
Furthermore, if the message of the protest is only as good as the occupation of a park then the message is lost in translation.

As of October 22, a protester climbed Mark di Suvero's sculpture Joie de Vivre. He had vowed to remain on this perch until Mayor Bloomberg resigned. Eventually the man came down and was arrested. Mayor Bloomberg remains mayor.

With winter right around the corner, I would say it is time the protesters go home and find a more legitimate place to run its protest. Camping out in a park, while seems nice and new, but what is it really doing other than costing the city more money in a already bad economy. I am all for protesting (it's a right). However, when the cost out weighs the means, it is time to re-strategize.

The message has to be more than a camp out in a park.

Herman Cain Smoking Ad Slammed As Glorifying Smoking



OMG! People come on. Hollywood glamorize smoking, sex, violence 24/7. Yeah I know Hollywood isn't running for president, but they certainly are putting money in Obama's pocket (look at GE aka CBS). The ad isn't selling smoking surely people aren't that dumb. Then too, this is American politics and while the liberal media says Cain doesn't have a prayer the ad was perhaps in bad taste, but it's gone viral now.

Make no mistake I support the protesters right to protest, however, I can't over how they have taken on themselves to campout in a park and allow certain arms of the protest to cause havoc in the city. The message is getting lost and starting to focus on their antics as oppose to Wall Street Corruption­.

Elizabeth Warren On Occupy Wall Street: I Created 'The Intellectual Foundation For What They Do'


Sorry there is nothing intellectu­al about what Occupy Wall Street is doing. The protesters lost their credibilit­y when after refusing to leave the park and have now turned it into a shanty town. The protesters are doing exactly what they accused Wall Street of doing: taking something that doesn't belong to them. Their message has to be more than a camp out in the park and family night and barbershop day. Just think of the money the City is having to pay police officers for overtime pay. I am ok with protesting­, but camping out and romanticiz­ing about Woodstock ain't gonna cut it.

Protesters Are Occupying Wall Street, But Not Yet Changing It


It all started going down hill for me when the protesters refused to leave the park. To me they are doing exactly what they accused Wall Street bankers and sometimes the government of doing. They are laying claim to something that isn't theirs. They are in essence, by their own actions, changing their message to clean up corruption on Wall Street to occupying a piece of land. The message I know WAS more than a piece of land, but now it's lost in translatio­n.
