FRAUD: Herman Cain Does 180 on Islam, Would Appoint Muslims to Cabinet

By Debbie Schlussel

After coming out strongly against Islam and appointing Muslims to his cabinet, Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain reversed course completely.  Yup, the guy is a total fraud, a complete flip-flopper.  Buh-bye, Herman.

Praise allah: One Out of Two Herman Cains Would Appoint Muslims to His Cabinet, Judgeships

Herman Cain wants to correct the record: He would consider a Muslim for his cabinet or as a federal judge if he’s elected president.

Cain’s clarification comes two months after he initially said he wouldn’t have any Muslim appointees, stoking controversy and criticism from a leading Muslim advocacy group.

“That statement is not what I said. It has been misconstrued,” Cain told Glenn Beck on his radio show Tuesday.

Uh, no. That’s exactly what he said . . . before he flip-flopped. The only thing misconstrued here is Cain’s honesty and integrity. He just doesn’t have any.

Go back to deciding which toppings you put on pizza, Mr. Cain. This ain’t for you.

So Sean, the constitution does really matter anymore? Glad to know how you feel

Jason on May 26, 2011 at 5:46 pm

Jason, the US constitution and the bill of rights does indeed matter and make a difference in this country, you know and I know that our constitution & bill of rights are apart of US laws. But let us just leave religion out of politics, the last thing we need is a theocracy to emerge in our government.

“A nation is defined by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on May 26, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Sean,

    I am a big supporter that religion(s) are hypocritical but you have to admit that our constitution and bill of rights are all based on christianity. That is where all of our laws have started. Murder – thou shalt not kill, adultry & stealing – thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife or goods, and on and on. How do you think our Founding Fathers came up with the laws in the first place. Get in touch with reality!!!

    Mary on September 28, 2011 at 11:05 am

I don’t see where the Bill of Rights comes into this. It says Congress shall make no law respecting religion. It does not say that you have to appoint members of a murderous, radical political cult who are sworn enemies of out country and our Constitution to any office or court in this country. Everything these people stand for is in violation of our constitution and our way of life.

Al on May 26, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    Well, you’ve got it partially correct. Actually the first full clause of the First Amendment states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, (which prohibits the establishment of any official religion for the country. This prevents a Theocracy.) or prohibiting the free exercise thereof:” (this second part of the first clause allows the freedom to exercise the religion of your choice, or no religion at all.)

    The writers of the constitution were very religious men, but they did have different religions. which explains both of the provisions of the first amendment. Over half of the independent states that comprise the union were theocracies which was prohibited only to the federal government, until the 14th Amendment was passed.

    ChuckL on May 28, 2011 at 7:29 pm

      I am so glad others do read and quote the Constitution correctly, you made my day.

      judester on August 30, 2011 at 10:42 am

He was asked if he’s be comfortable and he said no. What’s your agenda Debbie? The pizza remark makes me think you’ve taken a seminar position on Mr. Cain as an outsider with no political experience…I think that’s a good thing. He’s way less ‘Establishment’ than you are.

DL: I like outsiders with no political experience. That’s exactly what we need. People who do 180s and flip-flops are politicians, regardless of never having served in office. That’s what Cain proved he is . . . just another flip-flopping, Islamo-pandering politician. Halal toppings on the pizza. DS

David Leonard on May 26, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Right, we need non-politicians, called PATRIOTS to run for President! So, Herman Cain is not a politician, that’s no problem. But Mr. Cain is not a Patriot either! That’s a SERIOUS problem! No person can support the Sharia Law or Islamic Law, and be a Patriot for the U.S. Constitution. Just look up Sharia Law or Islamic Law in Google and read up on it. It’s very incompatible with freedom, human rights, and especially womens’ rights!

    Steve Hayes on May 27, 2011 at 12:38 am

      HERMAN CAIN, CEO, THE NEW VOICE: Hey, Neil, a reporter asked me would I appoint a Muslim to my administration? I did say no. And here’s why. But the reporter didn’t tell you this.
      I would have to have people totally committed to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of this United States. And many of the Muslims, they are not totally dedicated to this country. They are not dedicated to our Constitution. Many of them are trying to force Sharia law on the people of this country.
      And, so, yes, I did say it, and that is because I don’t have time to be watching someone on my administration if they are not totally committed to the Declaration and the Constitution of the United States and the laws of this country.
      CAVUTO: So, what if they told you, a prospective Cabinet member in a Cain administration, look, I’m Muslim, but I — I would honor all of the above and I would not be necessarily for Sharia law?
      CAIN: Then, in that case, I would certainly consider that individual.
      But, see, my motivation for saying, no, I wouldn’t, was based upon the fact that they are trying to push Sharia law off on this country. And I’m simply not going to try and be politically correct in order to help facilitate that.
      But if they were to give me a commitment, and they had some very critical skills bring to the administration for the good of this country, of course I would consider them.
      CAVUTO: OK. So, you’re not saying never, never, never?
      CAIN: No, I’m not saying never, never, never.
      Look, as you know, Neil, the first — one of the biggest things that any leader has to do, especially the president, is to surround himself or herself with the right people. There are tons of capable people in this country.
      And while I have been in this exploratory phase, yes, I have been considering, who would I put in various roles? Who do I consider to be some of the true patriots of this country that could help a Herman Cain Cabinet if I were to run and become president?
      And, so, yes, so far, I have not come across or I don’t have acquaintances with people who have professed their Muslim religion that are on the list of people that I would consider.
      We are — we have become a nation of crises, Neil. And being politically correct isn’t something I am going to spend a whole lot of my time worrying about, when we got all of these other problems that we are facing right here in this country.

    I have been promoting Herman Cain as the next Republican candidate for President, but what we MUST have now is someone that will stand up for what they say and believe and with H. Cain reversing what he clearly stated (which was when I decided I wanted him as our next President) I am now looking for another candidate… wish Alan West would run.

    Annie on May 27, 2011 at 10:18 am

      Heck, I wish “Adam West” would run! I trust the original Batman than any other candidate in the U.S.!!!

      leeleb on May 28, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    I agree with what he said 100%, the first time. Political correctness is destroying our country. There is nothing illegal or unconstituional about it either. If we don’t get some people in office to stand for us, the American Citizen instead of everyone but the citizens, we might as well turn it over to the Muslims anyway. He didn’t flipflop, he was trying to repair political damage done to him because of all the liberals & moderate Republicans. I only wish he had stuck to his position. I really don’t think it would have hurt him. Unfortunately, most publicists think it would, I disagree!!

    Judy on May 27, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    I was a fan of Howard Cain until he bent over backwards ,with the Islamic faith we all know what they stand for and I was proud of what he said, but he became a poltician when he refuted his statemen.We need a President who tells it like it is and stands behind his word. Howard fell off my radar as a Presidential candidate as just another politco

    ron little on August 16, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    It seems to me that if one changes their mind just to get votes, how can they be trused if the get into office? The Muslum FAITH has not been able to conquer the USA from out side, so they found that by infiltration they can win control and take over America. That is why they won getting obama into office. They knew that with him in office, he would appoint others that were of the same Muslum FAITH. If we want to get control of the UNITED STATES, we need to get rid of ALL Anti-Americans, all the illegal imagrents, especially the Muslum FAITH. We need to get rid of all anti-American, anti-constitution lawyers, and judges, and congressmen,and ALL the UNIONS. We need to get rid of “polically correctnes”. We need to get the government out of controling the “small business”. If we can do this, we can get people working again, buying the thimgs THEY want, not that the governmens says we have to buy. Our economy will grow. We need to have the AMERICAN people run the government instead of the government CONTROLING the people. WILL THIS EVER HAPPEN? NOT UNLESS THE LEGAL AMERICANS SPEAK OUT. “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything”

    Wayne Shrock on November 14, 2011 at 10:53 am

He wouldn’t hire em, period.

But to say absolutely that he won’t? I get it.

Or should I say I “Gert it”

Jason Gillman on May 26, 2011 at 10:31 pm

Only Jesus is perfect. I do not find Mr. Cain’s statements as mutually exclusive or grounds for diqualification for the nomination.

Sandy Kramer on May 26, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Only Jesus is perfect, that’s right! But remember that Allah wants infidels to die for him,… While Jesus volunteered to die FOR US! Don’t trust a politican who will invite Muslims into our political system and cause chaos in our civilization and government as bad as the Middle East countries. They advocate the Sharia Law, and most Americans need to become aware of this fact! Look up Sharia Law in Google.

    Steve Hayes on May 27, 2011 at 12:29 am

      Steve

      You need to look up the jew holy bible “TALMUD” – google it and open your eyes.

      Talmudic laws are already incorporated into our legal system.

      DrTruthSerum on May 27, 2011 at 9:38 am

        Well ya thats why this country is said to be a Judeo Christian nation! If you hate Israel that is your prerogative but understand also that puts you in a very precarious position with the God of Abraham which is your prerogative to not care about Him, but everyone will call on Him sooner or later I have not ever heard a dying man curse God before they left this world. Like I say its free choice.

        Mac on May 27, 2011 at 11:49 am

        And who might the REAL enemy be, Dr. Mengele? Is Stormfront getting so few hits that you write here?

        skzion on May 28, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    “American Patriot Muslim”…huh? oxy-moron.

    the ‘hiring of a [certain type] of muslim’…uh, that’s not chocolate inside that ‘candy coating’, it’s shit.

    Muslim is Antagonist to American.

    stacie on May 27, 2011 at 11:39 am

At least you have your facts correct, Debbie…..unlike the time you went off on Rocky Raczkowski last fall. This time, you’re just making a mountain out of a mole hill. The number of Presidential candidates in all of American history, who have never clarified their position on something to this extent, could be counted on one hand. Ask Benjamin Netanyahu who he would like to see come out of the Republican field? I’ll bet you your favorite 12pk that answer would be Herman Cain.

      Drtruthserum. Not Jewish law; but, law based on God’s direction – Christian. We who believe in God, use the whole Word for examples. Israel has Arabs in it Knesset. Are there any Jews in any Arab nation?

      Alice on May 27, 2011 at 10:27 am

      Yes, Dr. Mengele, you do not want to be Israel’s puppet; you want to be a puppet of Islam. Why not boldly declare your Nazism, rather than use code? If the US had fewer Islamo-Nazis, you would have less courage.

      skzion on May 28, 2011 at 1:18 pm

Ms. Schlussel, you have read Mr. Cain all wrong! I’ve listened to him on the radio for years and he is strongly pro-Israel and 100% anti-muslim (as I am). If I could pass a law against Islam being practiced in the USA, I would do it in a heartbeat. Sadly, because of the politically correct climate, I can’t even express these views at work because my employer is beholding to the US Government and they would have to fire me. Likewise, Cain hasn’t had the polishing that other candidates have experienced, so he made the mistake of letting his desire to express the truth outrun his better judgment. Then he got some heat from the pro-muslim groups and no doubt his advisers told him to back-peddle because their campaign can’t take that kind of heat right now.

Ed of Orlando on May 26, 2011 at 11:46 pm

So you don’t continue with Mr. Cain’s statement as to how his statement was misconstrued. You Miss Schlussel are practicing gotcha journalism. So are you mad he would appoint a Muslim to his cabinet or that he would not? If someone has given me no other reason to distrust the word of his mouth I must give him the benefit of the doubt. Whether he would or would not appoint a Muslim should be no issue to an American, but whether that person regardless of his religion was an upstanding citizen who will defend the constitution with every fiber of his moral character is what we should be concerned with. So, horror of horrors, you caught someone having to clarify their stance.This is Mr. Cain’s stance:
HERMAN CAIN, CEO, THE NEW VOICE: Hey, Neil, a reporter asked me would I appoint a Muslim to my administration? I did say no. And here’s why. But the reporter didn’t tell you this.
I would have to have people totally committed to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of this United States. And many of the Muslims, they are not totally dedicated to this country.

And, so, yes, I did say it, and that is because I don’t have time to be watching someone on my administration if they are not totally committed to the Declaration and the Constitution of the United States and the laws of this country.
CAVUTO: So, what if they told you, a prospective Cabinet member in a Cain administration, look, I’m Muslim, but I — I would honor all of the above and I would not be necessarily for Sharia law?

Bint on May 27, 2011 at 1:45 am

    Great reply Bint. I doubt Miss Schlussel bothered to even listen to his response, nor then having listened to it would she actually hear it. She only knows hate and tearing down that which she is afraid of – The Truth.

    Ed on May 27, 2011 at 2:22 am

    Thank you for your reasoned response to a very UNreasonable post by Ms. Shlussel. Her post is maybe the MOST misleading and hyperbolic pieces of garbage I have read in some time! What a clown this woman exposes herself to be.

    SpartanDad on June 26, 2011 at 11:44 am

Debbie, you need to get your facts straight. This is truly a lynching of Herman Cain. Way back on 3/28/11 Herman explained himself on the Neal Cavuto show about his response to not hiring muslims and what the reporter didn’t report. I’m tired of people that do not have all the facts blurting this garbage out when they haven’t done their homework. Here is the video and wtch carefully the explanation that Herman gives to Neal…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8jGnpbED9E&feature=related… This was a poor attempt to bring down the Cain Train!!

RJett on May 27, 2011 at 7:16 am

    We don’t need ANOTHER Obama in office OK?

    DrTruthSerum on May 27, 2011 at 9:50 am

      What are you getting at Dr. “Truth”Serum? Because Mr. Cain is black??? If that be the case, YOU SUCK!

      Johnny on May 27, 2011 at 10:44 am

        uh, who said anything about being black? perhaps it has something to do with Obama constantly siding with islam/moslems, siding with tarp (with cain also did) and not holding himself or his administration accountable for ANYTHING – cain also didn’t agree with audit oversights while he was at the federal reserve in kansas city. keep up, dumbass. the ‘racial’ remarks are way out of line and make you sound extremely stupid.

        annie h on May 27, 2011 at 7:31 pm

          Uh, annie, darlin’, how about reading some of your Dr. hero’s other comments on this blog? Reading is indeed fundamental.

          skzion on May 28, 2011 at 1:24 pm

      Please read a few other replies on this post and follow some of the links to get some facts that this article blatantly left out.

      Bint on May 27, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    RJett, Bint, and Ed – you are also forgetting this quote from him: “I immediately said – without thinking – ‘No, I would not be comfortable,’” he said. “I did not say that I would not have them [muslims] in my cabinet. If you look at my career, I have hired good people regardless of race, religion, sex gender, orientation and this kind of thing.” (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0511/55585.html) Cain has said much more to other news organizations such as what is posted than what he has “clarified” in his FOX news interview. Perhaps Debbie is not the one needing to do more research on this potential candidate. This issue is just one of many problems Cain is having to contend with (i.e.- his lack of foreign policy knowledge).

    Pats on May 27, 2011 at 6:25 pm

      I have listened to Herman’s radio show for 4 years. I know the man, what he thinks and how he thinks, his earthiness, his upstanding ethics, his genuine modesty, his morality, his love for his country and desire to re-embrace our founding charters. He is by FAR the BEST candidate to out-debate and out-smart O’Blahma in a general election – no matter How you wish to misconstrue or nit-pik him or his comments. You guys do your damndest to beat down any and every candidate until there is not one that is suitable to run since NONE of them are perfect on Every issue. And then we sit here wondering why the Dims get excited that we won’t support ANY of our candidates. Sheez, with Conservatives/Reps/Moderates/whatever like you, who needs the left to tear us down!! Great job of thinking nay-sayers.

      Ed on May 27, 2011 at 11:41 pm

I’m letting everyone know that you’re a fraud and obviously have something against Herman Cain. Herman Cain for President 2012!!

RJett on May 27, 2011 at 7:40 am

IF there was a muslim that could do his/her job without needing religious oversight, that would be a worthwhile appointment. Some departments, who cares. For example, transportation, the environment. These are departments, (assuming he does not accept bribes from arabs) don’t have religious overtones. Other departments, not too sure if muslim would be qualified. On the other hand, I don’t care what religion the person is if they are patriotic to the US and know what they are doing. It is obvious that some of Barry O’bama’s appointees have no idea what they are doing and have no idea of the long term consequences of their actions.

pete0097 on May 27, 2011 at 9:14 am

So….if someone reflects on their comments and then decides it wasn’t right, should they stick with their original words just because? I understand your point and will be watching him much closer but one “correction” should not disqualify him in voters minds….after all don’t throw the pizza out with the expired dough

Jeff Pohl on May 27, 2011 at 9:28 am

Say what you mean and mean what you say. Why can’t anyone running for office stick by what they actually say and not back track? No guts or back bone that’s why. Unfortunately for Herman Cain, he is just another flip-flop politician. How can anyone then believe anything more he says?
I would have considered him a viable candidate, however my mind has changed. He may be an honest, kind man but politics evidently is changing his thinking.

Faithbeliever on May 27, 2011 at 9:35 am

Why do so many people not understand the English language? I am not a Cain supporter, but it is clear that he said he would not be comfortable. He never said he would not appoint any Muslims. Most honest people do a lot of things they are not comfortable with. I guess many here just are not use to a truly honest politican like Herman Cain.

David on May 27, 2011 at 9:44 am

It’s bad enough that we have Judges in are courts that don’t stand by are constituion now.So you put someone in even the White House and they do just the oppsite of what they say they willdo and spend our money like it gose on trees on party’s vacation night out and trips with a lot of people at our exspence and you can’t get them out so you get more people in office and in our courts and next thing we have Sharia and Islam or Islamic Law all over the place and we are with out a true real court system for the Americans and Freedom of speech has Michigan gained full control of there state from the Muslims yet.

Nan on May 27, 2011 at 10:22 am

So much for Herman Cain. I guess I’ll keep looking.

Alice on May 27, 2011 at 10:23 am

He said in an interview with Fox News http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8jGnpbED9E&feature=related

that he would only consider Bill of Rights believing, Constitution loving, American Patriot Muslims but NOT those who want to impose Sharia law in America and are not commited to America’s principles. He has been consistent on this position! It is the media that keeps mispresenting him by not reporting ALL the facts. Shame on you!! You obviously don’t want to see this man win.

Debbie on May 27, 2011 at 10:42 am

If you have a candidate you like better than Herman Cain, good on you, go out and tell everybody your view and why your candidate is great. To have to make up lies and slander about another human in order to make your person look good is immoral. If your candidate is the choice of the majority of Republicans they will win. If you call yourself a republican and you are tearing down a republican you are giving the liberals ammunition. What if Mr. Cain wins the nomination? Will you then vote for Obama? Please think about how your words will be used against the cause of conservatives in the end.

Bint on May 27, 2011 at 10:42 am

That is not what Herman said. He said if he felt a Muslim convinced him that he would honor our constitution and not Islam and that person is qualified then he would consider hiring that individual.

crete on May 27, 2011 at 10:54 am

    I note that the Politico.com article coyly refers to “a leading Muslim advocacy group” (name withheld) — presumably the notorious CAIR. Herman Cain should tell CAIR to go pound sand (preferably somewhere in the Arabian peninsula).

    I yield to no one in my support for the First Amendment’s guarantees of “free exercise” and “no religious tests for public office”. But as for Islam, an acceptable Muslim for most offices is only an apostate Muslim. An example who comes to mind is Mr. Mohammed Odeh Al-Rehaief, the man who helped rescue U.S. soldier Jessica Lynch and was given humanitarian asylum in the USA. He is self-described as a mostly indifferent, secular Muslim. Another might be Ms. Rana Raslan, who won the Miss Israel pageant and is happy to be an Israeli. I still think anyone named “Mohammed” should change his name, considering what an unacceptable namesake “Mo” was.

    I mostly like Christians but would find someone who literally believes in Noah’s Ark or the biblical creation story to be a poor choice for some offices, especially those where scientific literacy is expected.

    To summarize, I too have a problem with this wishy-washy backtracking, as well as with Cain’s casual dismissal of the gross malfeasance of the Federal Reserve.

    Dave on May 30, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Herman Cain is the real deal. A man of faith, love of country, love of troops and of all people. He has great intelligence and knows how to fix problems. Somebody please tell me another candidate that has his qualifications.

crete on May 27, 2011 at 10:55 am

TOLD JA!!!!!!!!!!!
WE’VE ALREADY HAD THIS BULLSHID WITH THE USURPER IN OUR BELOVED WHITE HOUSE NOW….!!!!!!!!

Some people either can’t read, or can’t understand what they read. There are ample comments in context that tells what this man really said but they refuse to process it or they have their own agenda. I wonder if they are not really just Obama’s supporters that are still just trying to shout the rest of us down.

Larry Hager on May 27, 2011 at 11:47 am

So the lamestream media has done it again! Just as Mr. Cain said, if he were President he would consider Muslims in his Cabinet. These demograts have messed the U.S. not only up but down to a certain point where there is no getting back to the days and economy of Reagan. Leave Mr. Cain alone and let him recuperate and become President. That what we have in the White House now have back-peddled on a lot of things or all things since he have been in office. What is one little misunderstanding of a Republican candidate? democrats have ruined this country with their lying everywhere and the latest have been NY-26.

Jerry on May 27, 2011 at 11:58 am

“He never said he would not appoint any Muslims.”

HAHAHA… are you deaf? He FLAT OUT SAID HE WOULD NOT HIRE MUSLIMS!! Did you not listen to the original audio? Or did you only listen to his backpedaling on Beck?

“Would you be comfortable APPOINTING (key word here) a Muslim either in your cabinet or as a federal judge?”

Cain: “No. I would not.” In other words no, I would not appoint, nor feel comfortable with it. Of course, now he’s trying to grasp onto the word “comfortable” and say “Oh, I was just saying would I feel COMFORTABLE with it! Not that I wouldn’t do it at all!!” This, of course, is nonsense.

Slice it any way you want, it’s bigotry. Just like when we rounded up Japanese in WW2 and put them into camps. Of course, I’m sure the bigots today would be just fine with doing that, seeing as how, in their uninformed view, all Muslims hate America and want us dead.

Johnny on May 27, 2011 at 12:06 pm

I will bet you that it took less than 15 minutes for Cain to receive a extremely hostile phone calls from just about every member of the Bilderberg crowd informing him that he was dead politically (and maybe that his very life and the life of those he loves are in dire peril) unless he finds a way to walk his soul back into the fold of absolute love and friendship with the Sandworms.

Hearing such threats come from the mouth of George H.W. Bush was probably the biggest shock of his life. Cain just discovered the true nature of the game he is wanting to play in and it isn’t anything that someone who still has a soul left would be willing to stomach.

I’ll have a little respect for Cain if he withdraws in the next couple of weeks and if he just disappears from politics altogether. Either way you’ll probably see his campaign founder pretty quickly.

These Sandworms and their friends neither forgive nor forget quickly and if Cain wants to have a shot at doing anything more in his life than delivering Pizza’s he has to make a boatload of amends to the Sandworms. You’ll likely see him making joint statements of apology and diversity with CAIR and other terrorist-allied groups as a part of doing his penance.

This is what it looks like when you are owned by the enemies of freedom and why the RINO swine that really run the Republican Party will continue to go on putting the screws to us – to the point of where if the TEA Party people manage to have a real effect on choosing the candidate, the RINO’s will make darn sure we get 4 more years of PharObama.

Babylonandon on May 27, 2011 at 12:29 pm

Ya know, I’m by no means supportive of Shariah Law in America and will always oppose those who seek it’s advancement because Shariah is incompatible with our US Constitution. That said, I don’t think that we are in any position to keep tossing aside good, qualified candidates who can beat Obama just because we may not like one thing they may say. This article asserts that Cain is a “Fraud” without presenting all of his comments in context, now who’s being fraudulent? And just to make a constitutional point Article VI in the Constitution declares “The Senators and Representatives . . . shall be bound by oath or affirmation to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States”. If we are going to stand on Constitutional conviction, we have to use the whole constitution not just the parts we like. We also have anti-discrimination laws in this country that even the President isn’t allowed to break. If Cain or any President were to discriminate against anyone on the basis of religion, that is a violation of the law. The only ones who are legally able to discriminate against anyone they wish are the voters. I have to wonder what Ms. Schlussel’s agenda is to slander and mislead people about a good and viable candidate.

ChrisM on May 27, 2011 at 1:13 pm

And what if there comes a day when someone says they will not a person as judge because they are a Born Again Christian, is that OK too ?

CL on May 27, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Herman Cain is more honest than anyone Ihave seen in last 30 years watching politics now the media has to trash the one guy who really gets it He made as stateemnt last week over right of passage and he went got the information and corrected his policy now he makes achange and he is chastized for it what about this liar we have calls himself president acts like a toursit on vacatin all the time goes around the world aplogizing for this country that is B S period the media fools need to get their act together and look at these wanna be candidates romney has flip[ flopped on several issues including his socialist health care crap, santorum will be all about abortion we have other more critical issues right now they dis like palin but she also gets it right we need a Herman Cain and as for me the republican party can go to hell since all they offer is the same status quo the like of romeny santorum gingrich they bring nothing but apeasemnet to democrat who only want their control over the AMERICAN people My vote is for Cain and my support as well

john on May 27, 2011 at 2:07 pm

Debbie, you have a tremendous record on sniffing out the frauds, but I think you are wrong on this one. Herman Cain is about as legit as they get. He is strong like Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes, Walter E. Williams, Allen West, Pastor James Manning and Larry Elder. Black Conservatives have hell to pay in the “Black community” for the stances they take and usually have to be strong in their beliefs because many won’t believe they actually hold these beliefs. But as far as I have seen Cain for the last 18 months he has very solid beliefs.

CaliforniaScreaming on May 27, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Screamer, this time I think you are wrong. I find it useful to replace the word “Muslim” with “Nazi.” Then the question is, “Would you ever appoint a Nazi to your administration?” There is only one answer. If the interviewer then said, “What if the Nazi pledged his allegiance to the Constitution?” The appropriate response would be “A Nazi cannot have allegiance to the Constitution.”

    This is why his “position” is very revealing. True, we have no evidence that other candidates would get it regarding Islam, with the exception, so far, of West. But when we see clear evidence that a candidate either doesn’t get it or fudges his position suggesting that he is an opportunist on this important issue, we can’t just ignore the incident.

    skzion on May 28, 2011 at 1:40 pm

Anyone who thinks Islam is a religion needs to pick up a friggin dictionary. Its an IDEOLOGY! Not to mention that its an ideology that dictates seditious activities to be performed by its members within foreign governments with the express purpose of overthrowing said governments for the implementation of Islam. So if you still think, as Americans, we should sit back allow Islam to be spread throughout our country under the guise constitutional right… well, you not only need to pick up a dictionary, but you need to re-read your constitution. Sedition is an act of treason. Disagree all you want… you’re wrong.

Matthew Kuehn on May 27, 2011 at 7:37 pm

I changed my mind, will NOT be supporting Herman Cain!

WeimMom on May 27, 2011 at 7:45 pm

When some blacks start showing signs of being Islam-friendly it is a sign that they attend a all black church that believes in the “replacement theology” errant teaching. The Church did not replace Israel in God’s eternal covenant as God’s choses ones. Those apostate “Christians” must turn to Genesis 12:3 and then ask themselves… am I cursed for turning against Israel? Likely so.

Winston on Truth on May 27, 2011 at 7:48 pm

Blacks never prosper a country (nor gawd’s father pizza). And a black muslim only wishes its doom. Look at America now. Need I say more?

China is building up its military at an astounding rate. South America will soon arm itself with nuclear tipped missles from Iran, the oil rich Middle East is more unstable than ever.

This is no time to have a black man running a white country. No need to feel guilt. We freed them a long time ago. America needs to get back on track BEFORE 2012.

Arrest the usurper along with most of Congress and the Supreme Court. Get the Tea Party candidates in and the illegal immigrants out. Return prayers and the Bible back and ban liberals from any leadership position. YES, they are that dangerous.

Twolips Are Beautiful on May 27, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    We have the biggest liar ever as President, why trade him for another liar. Doesn’t make sense. A liar is somebody the USA does not need. My hopes were dashed for a presidential candidate. I’ll just keep looking and praying!

    Frankie on May 27, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    Twolips, your overt racism is disgusting–and it is, precisely, racism. Personally, I don’t give a damn about race, but care very much about ideology. Islam, by the way, is an ideology. That is why I would never vote for a Muslim.

    skzion on May 28, 2011 at 1:32 pm

      I’m not a so called racist. I’m a realist. Just as I would not send a 5 year old to fix my roof, nor send women to play the Oakland raiders.

      Does that mean I hate women and children? Guess that makes you the real racist.

      I just look at track records and logic. Send the right people to do the job, that’s all. No hate, just being real.

      Twolips Are Beautiful on May 28, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Debbie, in a far more perfect world than this one, you might be right concerning Herman Cain. But in this world, if you get a flat tire out on a desert road, you might have to accept the help of a stranger EVEN IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT HIM. It seems to me that if Herman Cain reversed his postion (I don’t know enough to say that he did, but one opinion I read said that it is against the law for the government to say: “no Mulsims need apply”), it may be politics, but politics is everywhere as you know. None of us are in a postion to pick and choose candidates the way we would in a perfect world. What about the people here who know and support Herman Cain? They say he is a patriot who would not betray his country (by allowing or supporting creeping Sharia). If that’s true give him a chance.

Max Kuenkel on May 28, 2011 at 3:41 am

Mr. Cain is being exposed to the relentless and merciless scrutiny of media, religion, other politicians and the stealthily hidden elite global wealth influence. He has to walk on a razor thin, nether world line of words and comments.

Winning a Presidential election is as much about majority following as it is attempting to be ‘consistently vague’ in your views and philosophies. He’s just beginning to learn to never speak in absolutes.

I believe Herman Cain would make a great wealth, social and race class uniting President (in reference and reverence to MLK), which is precisely why he likely won’t get elected. But I hope that he does and will support him as long as he is a viable candidate.

You can’t have the spectrum of wealth classes and a variety of races united in a way of life if you want to centrally control said same. Wealth and race class divineness, divide and conquer, is how you centrally control and enslave large societies to government.

The Muslims [Caliphate], Socialist/Marxists and stealthily hidden elite global wealth influences are all, in some cases, ‘overlapping’ groups of hindrance to an individually sovereign representative state of government Herman Cain is supporting.

So for Herman Cain to have any chance of winning a Presidential election he had to ‘back peddle’ and pander to the Islamic influence.

He’s a very smart man. He said as long as the Muslim’s are dedicated to the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and U.S. laws (vs Sharia), he would appoint them to the appropriate position they’re qualified for. He knows Muslim’s cannot and will not adhere to U.S. laws and governing principles. So his re-statement is not flip-flopping, but is simply political survival.

SeekingUnderstanding on May 28, 2011 at 9:58 am

    I listened to the part where they asked him if he would “be comfortable” about appointing Muslims. HE SAID NO!

    In another words he would not feel comfortable about it. That’s perfectly fine. But that did not mean he would not appoint any.

    I have not listened to the accusation of him flip-flopping.

    But I feel perfectly fine with him saying WHY he would not appoint a Muslim.

    Methinks Debbie is pushing this too far for whatever reasons.

    Mr. Cain is still very much a viable candidate to me. And I agree with him about Muslims. And if you ask me he thinking the way I would about this country at this moment.

    The only thing I worry about is his support of the Federal Reserve. His former bosses!

If a Muslim came to Mr. Cain and declared himself to be a Constitution-believing, America-loving patriot I would hope Mr. Cain would have him vetted to a fare-thee-well, considering the Muslims’ firmly held belief that it’s okay to lie to the infidel.

Not so incidentally, examine the “pro-America” views of many of the winners appointed by Obama …and they’re not Muslims!

Obama and his crowd plow along, refusing to adhere to the U.S. Constitution, ignoring U.S. laws (like the War Powers Act)and taking away more and more of our liberties.

Gov. Christie in N.J. has appointed 2 Muslims (I’m thinking one is even a judge, but I can’t recall right now). Let’s see how that works out for him.

It looks more and more like every candidate who comes on the scene like a caped crusader turns out to be mere human and thus flawed.

illannoy on May 28, 2011 at 11:04 am

Before jumping to conclusions, never judge a man from what they say about him, rather listen to his words.

Herman Cain refuses to appoint a Muslim in his administration

Herman Cain: Obama Will Pay in 2012, Voters Aren’t Stupid
http://youtu.be/w5uHEZQfCpg

There is not even a hint or desire that he will appoint a Muslim because he doesn’t believe Sharia Law is the law of the land.

We have been these days quite upset for what Obama and his attempts to impose his pro Muslim ambitions towards Israel, but the idea that Cain has reversed his opinion can’t arise from neither of these two videos.

Of all the Candidates I have heard so far he is the only questioned about an anti Sharia position.

I think people shouldn’t overreach conclusions and listen to his affirmation about his stance on Muslims in his Cabinet.

Carmen G Pastor on May 28, 2011 at 11:15 pm

It would be nice to leave religion out of politics. Unfortunately, as Mitt well knows, the only religion not to leave out of discussions is the one with the majority. Everything else is suspect.

Religious freedoms are what were promised in our constitution. Now, I guess every Muslim is a bad Muslim. Much like the exterminated American Indian, there is a “Muslim behind every bush!”

Herman Cain is a neophyte politician. He’s going to make every mistake under the sun before he gets it right. Even the Jr. Senator/now president Obama has been struggling to not tongue-tie himself. It takes years to perfect lying to get into office, then immediately waffling, ie. “Read my lips.”

Too much energy on a candidate who will go nowhere. Debbie usually doesn’t waste this much ink.

For any Cainiacs out there who love watching Cain Speeches. This is an older one, before the 2010 elections.
Maybe I like it so much because at the very end, that might have been the first time he announced that there might be a dark horse running in 2012.
I know I’ve been praying a long time for him to run.
Now we just need to get him into the White House.

Barb on June 5, 2011 at 11:47 pm

Well that strikes him out!…..Once and for all; Islam and Muslims are in direct opposition to all we stand for and are…they have NO place in this nation and need to be sent away…..if they cannot agree with our laws, Constitution and women are equal citizens to men; they can take their turbines and fly home where they belong because it will be women alone that will take them out for their iodiocy!!! Cain was a hope and now is just like the rest; trader to faith, God and the nation!!!!

Ruth on July 19, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Wow, Schlussel. In the very glance I get of your website, you already come off as a petty, ditzy, corrupt reporter pushing your own agenda with paranoia and extremism, and more interested in bearing false witness than true.

“Yup”, you’re a total fraud. “Buh-bye”, Debbie.

Steve on July 20, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Herman realized that he had spoken in haste in what is known as an over-generalization. It’s easy to do since there are so many really evil jihadists out there. But there are indeed lots of really moderate Muslims also, albeit a minority of them. I know muslims who voted for McCain and still dislike Obama. There are some like that, especially in the US where they are exposed to conservative media more than elsewhere, and we should recognize it.

Ashkenasi on July 26, 2011 at 9:39 am

As one who has done a reasonably thorough study of Islam, let me tell you what the unvarnished truth is: You can be an American or you can be a Muslim. You cannot be both. Allah forbids it in the Koran.

—8— Eight is the minimum number of places in the Koran where Muslims are ordered to kill all non-Muslims, as in the following:
Koran 2.193 Kill the Jews and Christians until there are none left to persecute Islam, and the only religion left is Islam.
(The catch here, is that as far as Muslims are concerned, just being a Jew or a Christian ((or anythings else)) is a persecution of Islam, so obviously you can’t win.)

—45— Forty-five is the minimum number of places in the Koran where non-Muslims are spoken of very harshly by Allah, as in the following:
Koran 8:59 Jews and Christians should not think that they can get away from us. We will prepare weapons so that we may terrorize and kill them. They are our enemy and Allah’s enemy.

—87— Eighty-seven is the minimum number of places in the Koran where non-Muslims are condemned to the eternal fires of Hell, as in the following:
Koran 4.56 As for Jews and Christians (and all others) who do not convert to Islam, We shall make them enter fire of Hell. And as often as their skins are burned off, Allah will give them new skins, that they may be burned off again and again. Surely Allah is Mighty, and Wise.i

Here is an example of a verse from the Koran which, very simply, explains the purpose of Muslims on earth:
Koran 15.94 Therefore Muslims, declare openly what you are told by Allah to do — that is, to conquer the world for Allah.

Islam is not a religion anyway. It is a religio-political state without borders, which is dedicated to committing murder, rape, plunder, and total destruction of all who do not convert to Islam. End of story. The phantom, often mentioned but never seen MODERATE MUSLIM is exactly that — a phantom.

Oh, there are Muslim who proclaim to be “moderate” and to “love America” but these people are either incredibly ignorant of their holy book — or — they are simply lying, just as the Koran instructs them to do.

And Herman Cain is a moron.

Orville on August 8, 2011 at 10:43 am

When will the US wake up to the fact that there are NO good Muslims when it comes to our laws? Their agenda is to to take away our freedom and initiate their own laws that allow murder of their own family members in “honor killing” and the cutting off heads of any person that is not a muslim. To do this they need more positions in the Senate, Congress and the Supreme Court, and that is where they are headed, and our goverment officials are so “self serving” they won’t acknowledge it. The US public needs to be educated and get the facts of this evil.
Herman Cain sure lost my vote, even if I had considered.

Carolyn Wiggins on August 11, 2011 at 11:50 am

Mr. Cain needs to educate himself conserning the true mindset of Muslims.

Give me a conservative AMERICAN candidate that pledges to roll back the progessive’s attempted distruction of our constitution, GOD and every right we have. Who pledges to fire all judges who adjudge by any law but our rule of law.
A candidate who will fight in every way all foreign law be it Shreiah, communism or globalism and they have my vote.

This is America, we’d better start acting like it! if not a new dark age is guarenteed. Where is a candidate with knowledge and backbone like President Reagan?

Vexed Vet on August 24, 2011 at 2:08 pm

I could vote for Herman Cain over any liberal. He might have changed his mind about Muslims but at least he is not an idiot.

Stephen R Eanes on September 6, 2011 at 4:57 pm

I think Cain’s UN/CFR handlers instructed Cain to reverse his position on Muslims, so he did. Cain has demonstrated that he follows orders, that he is a puppet, and a liar.

Funny how voters repeatedly demonstrate that their memory is always short lived. We know he was a Kansas Fed Reserve Chairman in the 1990s, that the Fed he loves to defend was flying the gay pride flag at every bank coast to coast, truly showing his Christian and family values claims. We know for absolute fact he loves and supports the Federal Reserve Bankers, yet so many Repubs want him to be President? Are that many Repubs ready to repeat the McPain vote, just hold your noses as you vote?

How often do we have to suffer diaerrea before we start to smell it?

Bob Andrews on September 7, 2011 at 10:48 am

Herman Cain did not say that he would appoint Muslims who support Sharia Law. He said that he would consider appointing Muslims who put the constitution of the United States first. However I don’t agree with him on appointing ANY Muslims, because they are taught to lie and deny anything, to achieve the ends that they desire. And I also don’t agree with asking someone to put anything first, before their faith-belief. As a Christian, God comes first to me, not my country. And our founding fathers put God first, as well.

Debra J.M. Smith
“Informing Christians” Journalist

For the record: Herman Cain originally had responded to a question that asked if he would be “comfortable” appointing a Muslim, to which he said, “No.” –There is a difference between being “comfortable” and actually doing it, if he feels that the Muslim does not really follow the Islamic teachings that embrace Sharia Law. –But again, I do not want any Muslim in any high office in this land. Heck, I cannot wait to get the one out of the White House.
