That’s why we make Cain 24/7 available 24 hours a day at But when it comes to Donald Trump, I constantly get asked by a lot of people when I’m traveling, dining out, or even at church, questions that I answer frequently on the radio show. First, can Trump win? Yes, and here’s why: Trump can win the Republican nomination and the presidency...

    A surge in support for Republican White House hopeful Newt Gingrich has made him the new front-runner in Iowa, which holds the first of next year's U.S. presidential nominating contests, according to a closely watched opinion poll published Saturday. Gingrich, a former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, has support from 25 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers, up from just 7 percent in late October, the poll conducted for The Des Moines Register newspaper found. --- Texas Representative Ron Paul and Romney finished second and third, with support at 18 percent and 16 percent, respectively.

  • Herman Cain rips into Bush as he reveals plans to speak at Trump rally

    Donald Trump will be sharing the stage with another businessman-turned-political-figure at his rally in Georgia on Monday night--former presidential candidate Herman Cain. Cain--a radio host who also was CEO of Godfather's Pizza--ran for the 2012 Republican nomination before dropping out of the race in December 2011 as allegations of past sexual misconduct escalated (he denies the allegations). Cain announced his plans to speak at the evening rally on his website, and he used the post as an opportunity to rip into Jeb Bush after the former Florida governor implied that people now leading in the polls could ultimately "flame...

    Big talk from Mr. 5.5 percent.Someone should tell Jeb Bush that I’ve accepted an invitation to speak at Donald Trump’s rally this coming Monday in Georgia. I accepted for a simple reason: He asked. But Gov. Bush seems weirdly interested these days in the connection – if only in his own mind – between what he thinks happened to me and what he thinks is going to happen to Trump.I’ve heard this one before, of course. Herman Cain was leading the 2012 primary race only to “flame out,” and the same thing is going to happen to Trump. This is...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain lashed out at Jeb Bush in a blistering op-ed published Monday, saying he did better in his losing 2012 run than Bush has been able to do in 2016. "At least I was once winning," Cain wrote on his website. "Jeb Bush has been doing nothing but losing throughout this entire campaign. His problem is him." Last week, Bush reportedly pointed to Cain, a pizza magnate who led the GOP presidential field in October and November of 2011, as evidence that outsiders such as Donald Trump and Ben Carson will falter before the first...

Much like how Carson has been doing well.

    The 2016 GOP presidential campaigns agreed on Sunday evening to cut the Republican National Committee (RNC) out of the debate negotiation process and instead deal directly with networks moderating debates, Breitbart News has learned. Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for frontrunner Donald Trump, confirmed to Breitbart News via phone on Sunday that the “biggest consensus” of five separate points the GOP campaigns agreed on was cutting the RNC out of the negotiations with the networks, as the campaigns would each like to negotiate with the networks directly. In response to the revelation that the RNC will be cut out of...

After Cain addressed the crowd in Norcross, Georgia, Trump praised the former presidential candidate's "9-9-9" tax proposal from the 2012 campaign. "When he said 9-9-9, I said, 'What the hell is that?' But he had a good thing," Trump told those in attendance, referring to Cain as "Mr. 9-9-9." The 9-9-9 plan would have replaced almost all current taxes and with a 9% income tax, a 9% corporate tax and...

Murdoch, who has repeatedly praised Carson in recent months, tweeted: Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black president who can properly address the racial divide? And much else. He then directed followers to an article in New York magazine that he said showed minority community disappointment with the presidents record. However, his earlier tweet directly implied that Obama, whose mother was a white American and whose father was a Kenyan studying...

    The media hates Donald Trump for many reasons. Originally it was, allegedly, because of his stand on Illegal Immigrants, but now, they have a new reason to hate him. No, it's not because he dissed one of their favorite RINOs, John McCain; it's because the media bullies have met their match. Unlike Herman Cain, who ran around the "ring" a couple of times and then fell down and cried don't hit me anymore, Trump is currently winning this boxing match. Why the comparison to Cain? The media's research teams apparently came up with a way to destroy a Black man,...

On today's Morning Joe, Mika admitted that the the MSM has a double standard when it comes to reporting controversial things that Democrats and Republicans have done or said. Yet she promptly turned around and applied that same double standard to Bernie Sanders and Rick Santorum. Discussing Bernie Sanders having written in 1972 that women fantasize about being raped, Mika agreed that if Rick Santorum had written the same thing, the press would go crazy. However, Mika claimed that wouldn't be because Santorum's a Republican, but rather would be due to "his...

Though he hasn't announced, we assume Jeb Bush is going to seek the Republican nomination, and the party already has Mike Huckabee in the race. Now, it will have to deal with a doomed Rick Santorum candidacy as well. Santorum made his announcement in a televised interview with pretend journalist George Stephanopoulos, and you can watch the clip below. To quickly sum it up, he's...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says that if he was the partys nominee, he would probably have a substantial lead on President Barack Obama by now. The reason is quite simple: I have some depth to my ideas, the former Godfathers Pizza CEO said in a speech at the University of Florida, The Gainesville Sun reports. He was speaking at the school as part of his College Truth Tour.

    Yesterday, Georgia Democrat Congressman John Lewis of Georgias 5th District used the race card tactic with his speech at the Democratic National Convention in pressing points that if Romney wins in November, surely the GOP and Romney will send African-Americans back to the days of segregation. After three minutes of telling the story of the days of segregation when he and other Africans-Americans were forcibly denied access to restaurants, public transportation and the ballot box, Lewis asked, Brothers and sisters, do you want to go back? The democratic audience shouted no. After continuing using race as a reference in relation...

    Rev. C.L. Bryant is making waves with his new documentary, Runaway Slave. I had the opportunity to preview the film in Bossier City, Louisiana, and I found the documentary thoroughly compelling. Runaway Slave was conceived by Rev. Bryant and supported by private donations and FreedomWorks. It has been well-received in private screenings so far, often receiving standing ovations, and is poised to open in select theaters across the country next week. While at Regal Cinema 9 in Bossier City, it was the highest grossing film there. Herman Cain caught a great deal of flak for his comment on the campaign...

    Following in the footsteps of fellow conservative Glenn Beck, it appears that former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is staking out his own terrain in the internet television world with a project called Cain TV. While much of the details are not available yet, Cain has teased that he will discussed the matter today on the Hannity radio show, launched a Twitter and Facebook site and, most importantly, a trailer. The trailer is the best and worst thing you will see all day. Cain TV is Real American Everything! the words shout through the screen. Then a bunch of Sandra...

    "Today is a temporary setback. The American people have hated Obamacare since its inception, and they can see that it is already driving up health care costs. The ruling that really matters will come on November 6, when "We the People" have the opportunity to replace the president and the Congress who created this monstrosity with new leaders who will replace it with measures that value market forces and free choice," Cain went on to say. "Mitt Romney has already vowed that he will issue waivers to all 50 states on his first day in office. That is an excellent...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will take over conservative radio host Neal Boortz's syndicated talk show next year. Boortz, a fixture of Southern talk radio, will hand over the mic to the former pizza magnate on Inauguration Day of 2012. Neal is my brother from another mother, Cain said on air, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Congratulations on the retirement. Congratulations on 42 years in this business. Boortz said he was looking forward to retirement but would regret signing off after more than four decades on the air. The show will likely remain based in Atlanta, where Cain...

Of Boortzs news, it says:Today national radio talk show host Neal Boortz announced live on his program that hes retiring from his daily show and passing the torch to his friend and colleague, Herman Cain.

    Over the last few days, since Romney clinched the GOP nomination for President by going over the 1,144 committed delegates needed with his win in the Texas Primary on Tuesday, May 29, 2012, a number of new endorsements have come in for Romney's bid for the Presidency. These include George Shultz, former Secretary of State; Condoliza Rice, former Secretrary of State and National Security Advisor; Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate; and Nancy Reagan, wife of President Ronald Reagan. Here's what each of them had to say on the date they endorsed Romney: NANCY REAGAN endorses Mitt...

    At a hastily called press conference, and flanked by fellow also-ran Michele Bachmann, Cain calls for GOP unity. The spirit of 2009 was alive on Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon. There was Steve King, the conservative Iowa congressman. There was his more polished, nationally famous colleague, Rep. Michele Bachmann. And of course the headlining out-of-town star: Herman Cain. The erstwhile Republican presidential frontrunner was in town speaking to the Congressional Tea Party Caucus, which Bachmann founded, and decided it was the moment to make an endorsement. Or, to be more accurate, another endorsement. In January, Cain endorsed "we the people." Nine...

    On the eve of Nebraskas GOP Senate primary, We Ask America has Deb Fischer surging into the lead. As you can see from the chart below, that is a remarkable 21 point swing over a period of one week. According to the pollster, it sounds like Fischer has benefited from significant financial support from TD Ameritrade founder, Joe Ricketts. However, something else happened in the past week, which is conveniently omitted from their analysis. As I wrote in this post, Sarah Palin endorsed Fischer last Wednesday. Jon Brunings liberal record has been a frequent topic of conversation on Redstate. This...

    Private pilots who may want to fly near Chicago on the weekend of May 19-20 have been warned they could be shot down, and a Red Cross memo suggests there could be mass evacuations of the city in the event of riots by left-leaning activists protesting the NATO summit. Less than a days drive away, however, near Jefferson City, Mo., at the same time there will be an event for Americans who also are worried about the nation. But instead of protests and riots, participants will focus on how to build up America, repair it and stabilize it for future...
