Don’t Forget: Herman Cain’t Resist the Al-Qaeda Mosque

By Debbie Schlussel

Now that Herman Cain is the latest rising flavor of the month in the GOP Presidential contender sweepstakes, several people have asked me if I’ve reconsidered regarding my views on him, since he’s the only real conservative who now looks viable.  Well . . . kind of, but with huge caveats.

Praise allah: Two Out of Three Herman Cains Pander to Islam

While I’m heartened and pleasantly surprised that Republicans were willing to dump that fraud, pan-Muslim, open borders Perry, to embrace a guy who is more of a down-the-line conservative in Cain, I recognize that Cain still has the problems I raised.  To wit, he did a 180 regarding his initial comments on appointing Muslims to the cabinet, and, far worse, he then pandered with a pre-Ramadan visit to a mosque that openly supports HAMAS and Hezbollah and was financed by Al-Qaeda’s money man.  He just doesn’t do his homework, much like the current and previous Presidents.  I had severe problems with Presidents Bush and Obama’s non-stop pandering to Muslims–Muslims who openly support Islamic terrorism.   Cain showed us that he’s going to do the same.  If he’ll do it in a GOP primary campaign (which won’t win him votes), he’ll do it in a Cain White House.

And he’s not that informed.  He didn’t know what the “Palestinian right of return” was in a FOX News Sunday interview.  And rather than admit he didn’t have a clue, he said he’d support it (which would instantly wipe out Israel with a gazillion fraudulent Palestinians getting citizenship).  Then, he did a 180, later.  The guy is great at preaching.  He’s not great at knowledge, principles, or sticking to his guns.  That said, he’s light years ahead of Sarah Palin, the most overrated fool on the planet.

Would I vote for Herman Cain against Barack Obama or the current GOP choices (assuming Michele Bachmann doesn’t regain her footing)?  Yes.  But I’d be holding my nose  . . . very tightly.  I just Cain’t forget this stuff about him.  It’s glaring. And if we don’t demand better, we’ll never get it. Bachmann has been steadfast on this issue, unlike the others.

I don’t think Herman Cain will be the nominee, and I think his current popularity is fleeting.  The eventual nominee might be innovative and pick Cain as his Veep nominee.  But Cain won’t be at the top of the ticket on any ballot in November 2012.

And that’s something you Cain count on.

Yes it is true…HC needs to learn more on foreign policy. I hope he does, but his unfortunate remarks regarding that silly Perry rock thing has me hesitating more still. I do wish he’d be as blunt about the Mooooooslim threat than he is willing to be. And that pre-Ramadan mosque visit was orchestrated by that puke Grover Norquist. The whole GOP establishment needs an enema!

What the hell happened to Bachmann? CW will cannily tell us that her sail was sunk when Perry came into the game BUT I really do (unfortuantely) think it’s because she was a stalking horse for Romney (she has NEVER hit hard on old Flip Floppney…her punching bag was Perry) and the establishmant used her and spit her out. Good old Ed Rollins. He left with his buddy and INITIALLY bad-mouthed her on PAWNN News…then did a little back-tracking doe-see-doe. Now MB can’t be arrested. It doesn’t pass the stink test.

I’d love to support Cain…but DS has her finger quite rightly on the bottom line…the Mooooslim threat. This country is not taking that very serious issue seriously at all. It keeps me up at night.

Skunky on October 3, 2011 at 6:27 pm

I can’t help thinking that Ron Paul might enter as a third party candidate, which will ultimately throw us into another 4 years of O’bummer.

Anyway, Skunky is right. This country is not taking a number of threats seriously, especially the Islamic one. Sometimes I envy those who don’t have a clue. Then perhaps I too could sleep at night.

cirrus1701 on October 3, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Ron Paul needs to be dumped on the ash heap of history. Aside from taxes and business regulation, he is a hard left kind of guy on every other issue. He thinks that Iran is misunderstood, that Israel should fend for itself, and that al-Alawaki was a victim. In short, Ron Paul is quite anti-American and probably an anti-Semite as well. He is the Libertarian answer to Pat Buchannan.

    Worry01 on October 3, 2011 at 7:08 pm

      I despise Paul, but his evil followers more. Verminous terrorist supporting scum.

      Occam's Tool on October 3, 2011 at 7:29 pm

        Occam’s Tool and Worry, I to am not a fan and supporter of Ron Paul myself, I to think the guy is a putz, but I also believe Ron Paul has a point on the death of Al-Awlaki. Yes Al-Awlaki was a disgusting and repugnant individual who joined forces with al-quaida and stabbed this country in the back, but at the sametime, Obama assinated an american born person without him getting a trial. I know this sounds pretty shocking to everyone here including Debbie herself, and I assume DS herself is having second thoughts on the death of Al-Awlaki so I also think why she hasn’t written a column on his death already. But we all agree on the issue of Ron Paul and his policies towards Israel, this country, Iran, etc.!

I think Bachman is attractive but she has a bit of a crazed affect and the press would eat her husband alive. Cain seems OK but is only slightly more qualified than my left nut. He’s the Republocrat affirmative action candidate put out there for appearances. Debbie what I really want to say is Mazal tov on your Lions miraculous victory in Dallas. I don’t want to get everyone overexcited so I won’t mention Moschiach until they are at least 10-0. I can only hope the Jews of Detroit continue to daven and fast so that Hashem will continue to guide the Lions on their path to Zion. Also once again a tall mechitzah inhibited me from fully experiencing the high holidays. As there’s no kiddish on RH it’s barely even worth going. Luckily the good looking women have to leave the sanctuary on average every 10 minutes so I can get a feel for the action because in my shul they pass behind the men’s section to
freshen up. L’shana tovah Debbie.

Debbie, thanks for pointing this out. In the end, I’ll have a good matrix filled out so I can vote for the one with the least bad habits.

Phillip Laird on October 3, 2011 at 7:38 pm

Cain had to flip on that issue, if he had any chance of rising in the polls We’re far too politically correct in this country, and the media would have a field day if he kept firm on that stance. I personally believe he lied, the 2nd time, when questioned on it, in order to stay in the game. I think of anyone on the block right now, he’s the only one that will have the courage to stand up to the Islamic take over.

K: He didn’t even have the courage to say, “No, I won’t go to a mosque funded and headed by the man who financed Al-Qaeda and its terrorist attacks.” Not sure how this makes him any more courageous–or rather, any less cowardly–than the rest of the pandering hacks on both sides of the aisle. DS

Kirk on October 3, 2011 at 7:42 pm

I happen to agree with Debbie. He won’t get the nomination but four more years of Barack Obama would be a disaster for this country. He’s done a few things right – like taking out Bin Laden and al-Awlaki. But his big undoing is his inept handling of the economy. Any Republican would beat him, if the situation hasn’t turned around by next fall.

The GOP field all have their faults. We can only hope, whoever the eventual GOP nominee is, he or she will take responsible criticism to heart and if elected President, will do right by America.

Cain or not, that’s what we need in a President.

NormanF on October 3, 2011 at 9:31 pm

What is wrong with “Wanted Dead Or Alive” (Al-Awlaki). It was common on wanted posters(OK — 100+ years ago). Bonnie & Clyde were executed without trial. Has the law changed? Yes, I am an old red-neck.

Dr Dale on October 3, 2011 at 9:38 pm

Point well taken Debbie. We all have to monitor all the candidates. Now that we are in October there is no time logistically to make a serious run for President unless a true 3rd party candidate emerges and the mechanics for that are not in place. Unless you are a billionaire. So the field is set and counting Christie only Cain or Bachman will fight Islam and its influence. Cain has that political naievete not ignorance with the right amount of swagger to do what he will say. Romney and Perry are too calculating and Christie is sold on Islam. And with Christie’s arrogance he will go to the mat for Islam. So under the process of elination I think Cain is the best shot. Romney might be a sleeper, but his calculating nature can’t be trusted.

CaliforniaScreaming on October 3, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    CS, you reminded me of the nauseating slobber that is going on regarding Chris Christie. This is the time when you can tell the TRUE learned Conservatives from the fake follow-the-leader ones. The follow-the-leader ones are just like Liberals…they don’t do their own homework. Other than CC being just what you said on Islam, he’s a big bully and I am shocked by those who DON’T think he’ll bully his own party. Who wants that?

    Between him and Palin with their teasing…it’s annoying. I am not a Palin hater or supporter (I purposely don’t study her) but she has her supporters chomping at the bit because they thought she’d throw her hat in by now. It’s a bit too much if you ask me.

    And what Norman said was spot on too. We can’t afford another go with Zero. Look at all the scandals under the radar as we speak. Solyndra. Fast and Furious…watch Jihad Darrell take his tiiiiiime on this. It’s sickening to see the Conservatives think this fool is gonna fast-track ANYTHING.

    And does anyone here know about the Pigford scandal? If Zero gets elected again we are through…in more ways than one.

    Skunky on October 3, 2011 at 10:28 pm

Where does Rick Santorum stand on jihad issue?

sturgis on October 3, 2011 at 11:06 pm

Cain’s got a nice folksy vibe about him that will resonate well. I think his Main Street vs Romney’s Wall Street economic sense will also resonate well. But he’s a babe in the woods on foreign affairs. Not toxic like Obama, but there’s a HUGE learning curve here. I think his Islamogaffes were done with naivity. Unless that is corrected – visibly- NOT WITH PLATITUDES AND SLOGANS, but with a firm UNDERSTANDING, I’d be worried. However, if he has John Bolton as a running mate, I’d feel a lot better. Remember, NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE REMEDY is for the economy, IT MEANS ZILCH if we have to deal with drone/underwear/car/whateverelse and an Islamic assault on – like it or not – what essentially is a Judeo-Christian civilizational heritage.

Not Ovenready on October 3, 2011 at 11:10 pm

Excellent discussion here so far.

Here are my own thoughts:

I think that Debbie has it just about right–in the Case of Cain v.s. Obama, vote for Cain while holding your nose tight. However, I’m still not giving up on Bachmann.

Worry01 is 100% correct about Ron Paul. The only thing that I would add about him is that he seems to generally think that the U.S. Constitution is a suicide pact and that any effort by the United States to defend itself against its enemies is unconstitutional.

I wish that the person that everyone was clamoring to get in the race would be Allen West, not Chris Christie. Regular readers of this site knows why. Sure, West isn’t going to run, but then again, neither is Christie, but yet people keep clamoring for the latter to run. If people are going to clamor for someone who has said that he’s not going to run to run, it should be directed at West, not Christie.

If you’re a Muslim convicted of murder and waiting for execution takes it toll – the infidel justice system will never be as swift as the Islamic one, what to do with all that time on your hands? Hey, sue for halal meals!

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/10/03/ohio-muslim-inmates-sue-over-meal-preparation/#ixzz1ZkirTKCL

Abdul Awkal claims not eating food prepared according to Muslim ritual is a violation of his religious freedom. Huh huh. Talk about a deathbed conversion.

All you have to do is convince the infidels you are sincere and they will do the rest!

They hate America but know they would never ever be treated this good in any Muslim country. Alhamidullah (Praise Allah) the wretched infidels are still good for a few things!

Cirrus1701 writes, “I can’t help thinking that Ron Paul might enter as a third party candidate, which will ultimately throw us into another 4 years of O’bummer.”

He just might. Like Ralph Nader and Ross Perot, he’s got a following. Paul and Gary Johnson were the only GOP hopefuls that came out against the al-Awlaki killing.

For what it is worth here is where Herman Cain stands on

German Multiculturalists Declare War on Critics of Islam

+++++We need international awareness about this situation in Germany !!!!!)+++++

The German government is debating whether to increase surveillance of German citizens who are trying to prevent the spread of radical Islam in Germany.

The move comes in reaction to a three-week-long smear campaign by members of the German mainstream media, who have been relentless in their efforts to discredit the so-called counter-jihad movement in Germany.

Opinion polls show that growing numbers of Germans are worried about the consequences of decades of multicultural policies that have encouraged mass immigration from Muslim countries.

In an effort to reverse this tide of public opinion, the guardians of German multiculturalism have been working overtime to regain the initiative, mostly by trying to intimidate the critics of Islam into silence.

The media campaign has been led by the Frankfurter Rundschau, a financially troubled daily newspaper based in Frankfurt am Main, the Berliner Zeitung, and the leftwing Spiegel, a newsmagazine based in Hamburg that has long served as the mouthpiece for German multiculturalism.

A particular object of wrath is a highly popular German-language Internet website called Politically Incorrect (PI), which over the years has grown into a major information resource for people concerned about the spread of Islam in Germany.

PI’s motto reads “Against the Mainstream, Pro-American, Pro-Israel, Against the Islamification of Europe” — which represents everything the German left abhors. Not surprisingly, many German media elites want PI shut down.

Over the past several weeks, several German newspapers have used a stock of more than 10,000 stolen private emails to insinuate that the people behind PI are “undemocratic” and pose a threat to the German constitutional order. They are demanding that the PI website, as well as the counter-jihad movement (referred to as “Islamophobes”) more generally, be subject to surveillance by the domestic German intelligence agency, the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (BfV).

Frankfurter Rundschau, for example, has fomented the hysteria by publishing dozens of agitprop articles, some by Mely Kiyak, a first-generation German whose parents were Turkish-Kurdish immigrants. Kiyak, who calls herself a “political pioneer,” portrays all critics of Islam as hate-mongers…….

Cain to be on the View today. Hopefully he teaches these Hags a few lessons. He had better not get PC with these hags.

CaliforniaScreaming on October 4, 2011 at 12:15 pm

Actually I hear Cain didn’t back down on prior comments. THIS MAN WILL CHANGE THE DISCUSSION IN AMERICA!! He has that i dont give a shit what you feel attitude. Alan Keyes and Pastor James Manning rolled up into one. He just polled another solid 17% again. He has the momentum. I am a CAINIAC!!

CaliforniaScreaming on October 4, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Thanks Radio Jihad Network, that was very interesting to listen to. I hope HC really means what he said. I would support him if he would go after Hamas, the muslim brotherhood, …

Did you know Mr. Cain has degrees in mathematics and computer science? I like that, most of our scumbag politicians are lawyers, have MBA’s,…

Jarhead on October 4, 2011 at 1:48 pm

Cain wears a lapel pin with flags of America and Israel on thethe View. This man may not be an expert on all foreign policy but his instincts and the fact that he is or was a pastor leads me to believe he will come to the right conclusion.

CaliforniaScreaming on October 4, 2011 at 1:50 pm

Most politicians are lawyers. That’s why they make laws. Its the fast lane to our secular American priesthood!

NormanF on October 4, 2011 at 1:52 pm

I doubt that either Newt or Ron Paul will get the nomination, so question is – is Cain, given what we now know of him, better than Romney? After all, Romney had started off the same way Cain did, and had slid later on over his statements about moderate Muslims. I think Bachmann would be a good VP nominee, if she doesn’t regain her foothold. Although the establishment might back Palin or Perry anyway – particularly if they see Islamic cash bankrolling their campaign, which badly would need bankrolling.

Romney certainly knows more than Cain, including Pali right of return, and his positions on Israel are largely pro-Israel. His shortcomings are that he thinks that a majority of Muslims are harmless, which is of course hogwash, but it’s no worse than any of the candidates out there, other than Bachmann. Anybody know what Jon Huntsman’s positions are? I doubt Santorum’s position is that different from Newt’s.

Infidel Pride on October 5, 2011 at 6:42 am

Wait a second – Palin is an idiot but Bachmann who thiks that John Quincy Adams was a Founding Father and cannot tell the difference between Elvis Presley’s birthday and death day and thinks that the Revolution began in Concord New Hampshire instead of Conocrd Massacusrets is the one you want to be POTUS?

Repeat on October 5, 2011 at 9:10 pm

Repeat,

Here’s the standard:

We want the next POTUS to (to name a few and in no particular order):

1) Repeal ObamaCare.

2) Fight against the Islamic Threat abroad–whether it be in Iran, Syria, or wherever else that it needs to be fought against.

3) Defend Israel by helping Israel to help itself, defend their rights in their territories of Judea, Samaria, and the Golan Heights, and perhaps even to put pressure Israel into reliberating Gaza that Israel withdrew from in 2005.

4) Fight to make sure that the United States does not become an Islamic nation itself whether it be by being Shariah compliant, illegal immigrantion, giving Muslims preferential treatment, etc.

I could name others, but I think that you get the idea.

With all that said, does any of the three misstatements made by Michele Bachmann that you cited give you any reason to think that she will not do any of the above or anything else that we conservatives hope that the next POTUS will do?
