Is Cain Able?

The following clip aired on Mark Levin’s radio show this past Monday. Why have we not heard any of this? We are so quick to condemn & abandon what could be a very good & honest man. We don’t know. If it is left to the Drive By Media, the truth will never come out.

Why is no one asking questions of these women? Once again we have journalistic malpractice on parade.

Why does Ms. Bialek need to employ any attorney, much less the well-known publicity hound, Gloria Allred? She’s not going to sue Mr. Cain. If one is telling the truth, what’s the lawyer for?

The great conservative sage, Karl Rove says that Allred “gives Ms. Bialek’s charges and accusations a little bit of credibility, and that’s what we’re talking about here — credibility.” Really Karl?
It’s common knowledge, or at least should be, that Karl is a progressive republican, just like his former boss, ‘W’. It is also bloody obvious Rove hates the Tea Party & anyone we may give a modicum of support to.

I don’t know if Cain is who these women say he is & neither does anyone else. I do know that if these charges were made against our president there would be nothing but silence & excuses. The accusers would be persecuted relentlessly (eg. Clinton).

Is there not a single major media journalist with the courage to look into these stories?

Now we have woman number 2, Karen Kraushaar. She made a sexual harassment claim against Cain in 1999. Kraushaar is in the current employ of the Obama Justice Department. Mere coincidence.

A few years later, working for the INS (Immigration & Naturalization Service), she filed another complaint. It wasn’t for harassment. She was in a car accident in 2002. She made requests to work from home, but apparently was not seriously enough hurt, so the request was denied. She then filed a claim for several 10’s of thousands of dollars, a year-long fellowship at Harvard University, a pay raise & all her sick time reinstated. By the way, she was not hurt on the job.

When asked about that incident she claimed it was a “relatively minor” claim & couldn’t recall the details. Really? But I bet you recall every detail of the Cain encounter some 3-4 years earlier.

She did sign a confidentiality agreement regarding the alledged Cain harrassment. When did that lapse? Cain has run for office before. Why wait for now?

I’m quite sure we will have a circus press conference with more than just these two women & their attorneys. I am also sure there will be no questions of credibility asked.

Ask all the questions of Herman Cain that can be reasonably asked, but do a little investigation of the accusers. Let’s find the truth. He has volunteered to take a lie detector test. Have they?

Here is an interesting update. Evidently, Mr. Cain has already taken a lie detector test of sorts, and so has Ms. Bialek. Watch this.

In closing, if the truth ever does reveal itself, I bet we’ll find Cain to be innocent & these women have been put up to this by someone like Axelrod, Daley or maybe even Rove.

Joke of the Day


A lady was walking down the street to work and she saw a parrot on a perch in front of a pet store. The parrot said to her, “Hey lady, you are really ugly.” Well, the lady was furious! She stormed past the store to her work. On the way home she saw the same parrot and it said to her, “Hey lady, you are really ugly.”

She was incredibly ticked now. The next day the same parrot again said to her, “Hey lady, you are really ugly.”

The lady was so angry that she went into the store and said that she would sue the store and kill the bird. The store manager replied, “That’s not good,” and promised he wouldn’t say it again.

That night the store manager fitted the bird with a shock collar that would electrocute & kill it when activated.

When the lady walked past the store that day after work the parrot called to her, “Hey lady”, glancing over to the manager with his finger on the button.

She paused and said, “Yes?”

The bird said, “Lookin Good!”

Never a Dull Moment

Vancouver
A woman in her 20’s was found dead in a tent at the Vancouver Occupy campsite of a drug overdose this past Saturday. To his credit, the Mayor Gregor Robertson directed the city manager to clear the park.

Lauren Gill, an organizer at the camp said the girl’s death proves the need for more services for addicts in the city. Who’s a good socialist? That’s always the answer, isn’t it. More government.

Gil described her as “a bright, energetic, beautiful, kind, passionate, artistic youth” and said she’d known her for several years. I thought she was a drug addict?

After the incident reporters began to be roughed up & one cameraman was knocked to the ground.

Sounds just like a Tea Party event.

Washington D.C.
Saturday night saw another incident at the D.C. Occupy event.

Hundreds of Occupiers linked arms to block city streets.

A family of three protesters were hit by a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was not charged. The three, however, were ticketed.

According to 2 witnesses, the accident was unavoidable. The family had a different account.

Lt. Christopher Micciche of the D.C. police said the witnesses told police the 3 jumped in front of the vehicle & one apparently leaped onto the hood.

I, for one, would never believe the fuzz. Next weekend I think I’ll take my kids downtown & show them how to jump in front of moving vehicles. It’s those memories that last a lifetime.

Zuccotti Park, New Yory City
Eminent Domain strikes the park campsite. Organizers are ordering individual tents be removed in some areas and replaced with larger community tents. These larger tents will have access restricted to only certain people. That’s discrimination!

After more than a few rapes & sexual assaults have occurred at the site, the folks in charge have decided to raise a female-only tent.

That sparked talks of separate tents for homosexuals, transgenders, married folks, etc. So every group will eventually have their own tent.

Evidently the female tent will be policed by only females.

This does not sound like the all tolerent, all inclusive community I thought it would be (laugh). It’s sounds like forced segregation. It sounds like, dare I say it, the 1%. Walling off good peaceloving people. Telling them they can’t come in here. Mr. Organizer, Tear Down This Wall!

San Diego
Here’s thanks for ya.
The Owners of a pair of Hot Dog vending carts had to close up at their Civic Center Plaza location.
The Occupy protestors gave thanks to the vendors for their generosity in providing free food & coffee. How, you say? By splattering the carts with blood & urine.

The owner of the carts initially gave away food & drinks but apparently could not continue to do so forever. That’s when things got ugly. I guess free food & drink is now a right.

They also stole items & spray painted graffiti on the carts.

The owner of the carts said she may not be able to clean them sufficiently & they may have to be replaced. A good new cart costs in excess of $2000.00, not to mention the 2 operators that are now unemployed.

What’s not to like about this bunch?

Joke du Jour

One morning the Company Commander called his Sergeant in. “Sarge, I just got a telegram. Private Jones’ mother died yesterday. Better go tell him and send him in to see me.”
So the Sergeant calls for his morning formation and lines up all the troops.

“Listen up, men,” says the Sergeant. “Johnson, report to the mess hall for KP. Smith, report to Personnel to sign some papers. The rest of you men report to the Motor Pool for maintenance. Oh by the way, Jones, your mother died, report to the commander.”

Later that day the Commander called the Sergeant into his office. “Hey, Sarge, that was a pretty cold way to inform Jones his mother died. Couldn’t you be a bit more tactful, next time?”

“Yes, sir,” answered the Sarge. A few months later, the Commander called the Sergeant in again with, “Sarge, I just got a telegram. Private McGrath’s mother died. You’d better go tell him and send him in to see me. This time be more tactful.”

So the Sergeant calls for his morning formation. “Ok, men, fall in and listen up. Everybody with a mother, take two steps forward — NOT SO FAST, McGRATH!”

Joke of the Day

While sport fishing in the Florida Keys, a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but he had heard that barracuda will attack people so that kept him clinging to the overturned craft.

Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, “Are there any barracuda around here?”

“Naw,” the man hollered back, “they ain’t been around here for some time!”

Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore.

About halfway there the swimmer yelled, “How’d you get rid of them?”

“We didn’t do nothin,'” the old beachcomber said.

“Wow,” said the tourist.

The beachcomber added, “The sharks got ’em.”

Driving Miss Media

Have you heard the term, “Drive by Media”? Rush Limbaugh coined it several years ago.

For those who don’t know it’s meaning, it is a twist on the term “Drive by Shooting”.

The Urban Dictionary accurately defines it as, “Rush Limbaugh’s term for the sensational, scandal-seeking, and agenda-driven coverage that is typical of the national press corps in America. Limbaugh draws an analogy between the media who cover a story with a barrage of unfair cheap shots before moving on to the next flavor of the month and an inner city gang that drives by and sprays a target with gunfire and then moves on to their next target.”

There is no real investigative journalism, no thought to the reporting, other than an overarching agenda.

There is never an apology when things turn out opposite to how things were originally reported; no follow-up.

There is just deafening silence where once was earth-shaking sensationalism.

It’s not that today’s “Journalists” are incapable of real investigation. It must first & only fit their overall worldview. A recent good example was the Herculean effort & hundreds of man-hours spent pouring through former Governor Palin’s emails.

This brings us to one of the latest cases of journalistic malpractice perpetrated by the “Drive Bys”. The liberation & democratization of Libya from the evil Gaddafi regime.


The al-Qaeda flag, which contains the phrase “there is no God but Allah” with a full moon underneath, flies above the new national flag of Libya at the courthouse in Benghazi.

There is no God but Allah


The courthouse in Benghazi is where the “rebels” established their provisional government, and it is where the “media center” for communication with foreign journalists was located during the fight against Gaddafi.
It has been known all along that al-Qaeda was very heavily represented in the army of “the rebels” and among the leadership of “the rebels”. Now, thanks in part to Obama, they have taken over Libya and they intend to impose a brutal form of Sharia law on the entire Libyan population. Please don’t say, “It was NATO, not this administration”. America is NATO.

This is an account from an eyewitness: “It was here at the courthouse in Benghazi where the first spark of the Libyan revolution ignited. It’s the symbolic seat of the revolution; post-Gaddafi Libya’s equivalent of Egypt’s Tahrir Square. And it was here, in the tumultuous months of civil war, that the ragtag rebel forces established their provisional government and primitive, yet effective, media center from which to tell foreign journalists about their ’Fight for freedom’.”

They knew it wasn’t freedom they were fighting for. It was a new theocracy & another piece of the Caliphate puzzle.

According to the UK Telegraph, the leader of the Libyan rebels was very open about the fact that his “troops” included significant numbers of al-Qaeda fighters that were firing bullets at U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

Hasidi

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.

Like Egypt, we were led to believe the Libyan “Rebels” just wanted to take their country back for the betterment of their people. Why were we not told al-Qaeda was part of the Rebel Alliance. I thought al-Qaeda were our enemies. Why would we help them? Gaddafi was a bad dude & I’m sure he received a non-stop flight to the lowest level of hell but, in my book, al-Qaeda is worse. Like Mubarak of Egypt, Gaddafi was contained. These terrorists have no boundaries.

I’m just a schlub with a blog, but even I knew this would happen. I wasn’t sure which terrorist group would seize control, but I knew one of them would fill the vacuum.

Where are the “Drive Bys”, explaining that maybe they should have looked a little deeper and, now on multiple occasions, admit they were wrong & there will no democracy, no freedom.

Don’t hold your breath.

Joke of the Day

Three vampires walk into a bar.

The bartender looks at him suspiciously, but decides to serve them anyway. “What’ll be, boys?”

The first vampire says “Blood. Give me blood.”

The second vampire says “I too wish for blood!”

The third vampire says “Give me plasma.”

The Bartender smiles and says “Got it. Two bloods, and a blood-light.”
