  • They’re Coming for Mike Lee

    It is extremely notable that Manu Raju of the Politico has written that the establishment intends to destroy Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Raju serves as the court stenographer for the Senate GOP leadership. His pieces are routinely littered with the conventional wisdom and talking points of the Senate GOP leadership. He has more than once anticipated Senate GOP leadership strategy based on their conversations with him. So when Manu Raju says the establishment intends to go on offense against the tea party by beating Sen. Mike Lee in the Utah Republican Primary, we can be sure Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY),...

    Hillary Clinton has a sneaky plan to become the next president — get a conservative third-party candidate in the race to draw votes away from the Republican nominee. Clinton campaign strategists have concluded Hillary will easily be nominated in 2016, but cannot win the general election in a head-to-head matchup, Richard Turley reports on “They are reaching out to Wall Street allies to do ‘black-ops’ funding for a run by Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum or Herman Cain,” a source told Orb. Hillary’s approval rating is stuck at 43 percent, not enough to win a two-person race for president.

    The Hill ^ | August 20, 2014 | Bob Cusack, Vivian Hughbanks and Tomas Navia
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)There are 65 prominent people who might run for president in 2016. The Democratic and Republican fields contrast sharply. Hillary Clinton is the clear front-runner, while there is no front-runner on the Republican side. Twenty-three Democrats have been mentioned as a candidate or are eyeing a bid, according to an analysis by The Hill. The GOP side has 42. Most of the people on this list won’t run, and some have adamantly claimed that they’re not interested. But many politicians have changed their minds on seeking the White House. Before mounting his 2008 bid, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he...

    NEW ORLEANS -- Herman Cain, who ended his 2012 presidential campaign amid allegations of multiple affairs, said Saturday that he might run for president again in 2016. Cain, in a speech at the Republican Leadership Conference here, brought up the prospect of another run toward the end of his speech. He then suggested he would do it if he were called by God. “I do not know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future," the Georgia businessman said. "And I trust in God.” Cain, 68, was a brief front-runner for the GOP nomination in 2011 but...

It happened again last week when a caller to my radio show insisted that I was an "Uncle Tom". His assessment was for all of the usually ignorant reasons, against which I tried to use facts and logic to help him see the light. Not surprisingly, facts and logic did not matter to him, because he had finally gotten on the show to set me straight and give me a piece of his demented mind. He failed to realize that I...

    Intimidation tactics.I’m sure you’ve heard about this dispute in Nevada, where a rancher named Cliven Bundy was confronted by a virtual army of armed agents from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The whole thing is a dispute over very complicated laws concerning grazing rights, and the laws are too confusing for me to sit here and tell you who is right and who is wrong. But the complicated nature of the law is a huge problem here, as it is when we deal with things like tax law. That’s why I have sympathy for Mr. Bundy. His issue with...

    There's one born every minute.The latest delay to ObamaCare - is it the 29th? the 30th? I can't keep track anymore - should leave no doubt in anyone's mind that this ill-conceived law is a complete and utter disaster. I don't think there is anyone left outside the partisan Democrat world (and the mainstream media, which is just another way of saying the same thing) who fails to sense that at this point. But it's one thing to sense something. It's another to be able to quantify it. To demonstrate factually what a scam ObamaCare is, there are six specific...

    Then maybe we can at least solve some problems.Last week a caller to my radio show opined about the problems of this Democrat administration and this Congress. The list of complaints was extensive. He touched on foggy foreign policy, a sluggish economy, joblessness, waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars, environmental extremism, lack of leadership . . . and the list goes on. He then, and rightly so, threw the Republicans under the bus, pointing out that they did not boldly solve things when they were in control of the White House and Congress.

    Radio host and businessman Herman Cain addressed more than 400 Republicans packed into The Antler's Hilton conference room Saturday night for the annual Lincoln Day Dinner fundraiser. Much of Cain's message focused on conservatives stopping and reversing "Big Brother" control in Washington, D.C., and winning upcoming congressional races. ..... Cain said that conservatives must "defeat the sluts of the status quo in Washington, D.C." At the end of the day, he said that it all depends on gaining control of Congress. "We've got to look for candidates that are crystal clear for what we stand for."

"This train is running full speed down the tracks towards socialism and towards communism," he told the Faith and Freedom Coalition. "Yes, I said it. Before we stop it and reverse it, we got to slow it down. That's what we do in 2014." Cain, who suspended his campaign amid allegations of sexual harassment, told the activists he has a plan for a conservative rebound. "After...

A) The politician who used the racial insult will be roundly and widely denounced and forced to resign from office. B) Nothing. The answer is: It depends. It's impossible to determine the correct answer without knowing whether the epithet came from the white politician or the black politician. In a society that treats racism, correctly, as a grave offense, it shouldn't really matter. But apparently...

Herman Cain insisted Monday he does not want to be called Republican for fear of being saddled with the "dumb things" Republicans have said in the past. Cain also said the black conservative movement is "different from the Republican brand." To be sure, Cain is not straying from his conservative stances. Instead, he hopes to entice even more African-Americans to...

The strong and swift refused to join the presidential race. So the weak and doubtful rose -- and tried to take their place. Our Herman Cain, for instance, flogged his taxing 9-9-9. To 10 parts cuts but 1 part tax, all said that they'd decline. Newt brought his wife, who wore her hair as if it were a...

Every race @CrossroadsGPS ran ads in, the Republicans lost. What a waste of money.” And GOP leaders are already taking to the barricades on either side of the divide, which basically comes down to this question: Were Romney and the GOP...

When it was over, 5,200 Continental troops had been captured, 92 were killed, and 148 were wounded. The city was lost. It would go down in history as the worst U.S. defeat of the Revolutionary War. As news of the loss spread, Americans complained that war was hard, there was no way to win, and that Liberty just wasn’t worth the hassle. So, they surrendered and we remain English...

Or, to be more accurate, another endorsement. In January, Cain endorsed "we the people." Nine...

    As we move into the general election campaign, with Mitt Romney facing Barack Obama in the presidential race, it’s important not to lose perspective on the very real differences between the two. That starts with the recognition that Obama has made some astonishingly ill-conceived decisions as president, and that Romney would never have done these things. During a party’s nominating process for president – of which I was a part on the Republican side in this cycle – candidates do everything they can to differentiate themselves from each other.

    Herman Cain made clear Tuesday that he is ready to throw his support behind Mitt Romney, making no mention of his endorsement of Newt Gingrich. “I have always said I will support whoever the nominee is and it looks like Mitt Romney’s going to be that nominee, and we do need to get behind him,” Cain said on Fox News. “I remind people all the time … ‘Keep your eye on the mission.’ And the mission is to get control of the Senate, maintain control of the House and defeat Barack Obama. That means get behind the nominee, so, yes,...

    Remember Herman Cain? Well, Jack Hoogendyk certainly does. The Kalamazoo Republican, who is running for Fred Upton’s 6th District Congressional post, has been endorsed by the former presidential candidate. Cain sent out a press release Thursday, welcoming Hoogendyk into the “Army of Davids.” In the release, Cain said Hoogendyk has committed to his so-called “9-9-9 plan,” calling for a 9 percent tax rate on personal income, 9 percent on corporate income and 9 percent on national sales tax. “The current tax code is confusing and counter-productive. It stifles prosperity,” Hoogendyk said in the release. Cain praised Hoogendyk’s limited government conservatism....

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: For the longest time, I, on this program, incurred the wrath of millions of you by suggesting, because you thought I had chosen sides, I still haven't chosen sides. You thought that I had it in for Romney when I pointed out that -- in my view, based on my instincts, my gut, study, my knowledge of who the left is -- I thought they wanted Romney as the nominee all along. I thought that's what Occupy Wall Street was all about was to set up Romney as the guy they were protesting. Romney is the kind...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will stump on behalf of Newt Gingrich in Cleveland this Saturday. Cain will deliver his speech at Lee University's Rose Lecture Hall at 1 p.m. The event, hosted by the Lee University College Republicans, is free and open to the public. Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, is most recently known for running an unconventional, unsuccessful campaign for the Republican nomination last year. His 9-9-9 tax reform plan briefly made him the GOP front-runner until allegations regarding extramarital affairs dismantled his campaign. The speech comes less than one week before Tennessee voters go...

    Calling the 2012 Republican presidential primary the most volatile for the GOP in generations isn't political hyperbole - it's empirical fact. Since the start 2011, seven different candidates or potential contenders could claim to be the Republican race's front-runner, according to polling from Gallup. The list includes Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. In at least one Gallup poll, each claimed at least a share of the lead in the GOP race. (snip) Polling data supplied by Gallup dating back to 1930 shows that no other race since that time has...

    CUMMING, Ga.— Herman Cain may no longer be seeking the GOP presidential nomination, but he still has plenty of fans in Georgia. The erstwhile presidential candidate received a standing ovation at South Forsyth High School, where he introduced former House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) at a county precinct meeting. “You know, I knew I had some friends in Forsyth County,” Cain said, as the crowd cheered. “But we’re here because we believe Newt Gingrich should be the next president of the United States in America.” “And contrary to what the mainstream, lame-stream, lapdog media want you to believe, he can...

    Former U.S. Rep Pete Hoekstra will trot out Herman Cain, who bowed out of a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, around Michigan next week to drum up support, his campaign said today. Cain will appear in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Ypsilanti and Troy on a blitz across the state as they tout the Holland Republican’s Tea Party ties and taking incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow to task for her spending policies. Cain suspended his quest for the presidency in December amid rumors of marital infidelity. “The Tea Party conservatives have been increasingly supporting Pete Hoekstra over the years as a result...
