Socialism is bankrupt

Jul 30, 2018 — Herman Cain

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,Venezuela in Shambles
“Socialism is a philosophy that, at best, has proven to be ideologically bankrupt, having failed to produce anything close to a free-market system. At worst, it is a weapon for petty thug-tyrants to prop themselves up while strangling the nation’s economy and stomping on the rights of citizens with impunity, as has been the case in Venezuela.” – Jarred Stepman (Heritage)

Most people who are buying into the “free stuff” narrative don’t know what socialism is, or what it can do long-term. The narrative sounds good, but it has never worked in the history of mankind.


VIDEO: Fireworks on Mornings with Maria over tariffs

Jul 19, 2018 — Herman Cain

We had some fireworks this morning on Mornings with Maria!

The primary topic was the tariffs President Trump has recently imposed, and between myself, Maria Bartiromo and Dagan McDowell, we found ourselves having quite a spirited debate.

What do you think?

I can’t believe I get to do this for a living.

Let me know your thoughts in the comment section, everyone!


Outside the political class, real people give their own money to help a teacher of poor children

Outside the political class, real people give their own money to help a teacher of poor children
There are people in this country who actually have real problems. They don’t use them as an excuse to bash others or to play victim. They just keep their heads down and try to do the best they can.

One such person is Kimberly Bermudez, the 27-year-old teacher of many impoverished children at charter school in Chicago. Recently on a flight to Florida, she was telling a fellow passenger about how difficult the lives of some of her children are – often going hungry or doing without other needs – and how teachers and administrators at the school routinely spend their own money to help with basic necessities for the children.


Contrasting Trump’s leadership with Obama’s positionship

Contrasting Trump’s leadership with Obama’s positionship
Barack Obama was in a leadership position as president. He used it to try to appease his political party, the liberal media, public opinion and his big financial donors. As a result, he “led from behind” – and that’s his own description.

You might call this positionship. He wasn’t interested in leading. He was interested in holding the position.


Here’s why the left’s anti-Kavanaugh strategy is not going to work

Jul 11, 2018 — Herman Cain

Here’s why the left’s anti-Kavanaugh strategy is not going to work
Predictably, the Democrats in Congress and other liberals went ape-crap when President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. From an announced list of 25 candidates many months ago, the Democrats had already decided they would “fight this nomination with everything they’ve got,” as Chuck Schumer so eloquently put it.


Democrat complaints sounding pretty ridiculous as the good news keeps rolling in

Democrat complaints sounding pretty ridiculous as the good news keeps rolling in
The liberals are louder with their outrageous rhetoric and ignorant protests, but conservative and free-market principles are driving more good news, pound for pound, than the liberal noise chambers. It starts with President Trump and his administration, and ripples down through many aspects of our economic and business infrastructures.

Last week, jobs created in the month of June were 213,000, the highest June monthly number in years. The unemployment rate ticked up to 4.0, because over 600,000 people re-entered the labor force. And May job numbers were revised up from 223,000 to 244,000.


Polls suggest trashing Trump isn’t working too well for Democrats

Polls suggest trashing Trump isn’t working too well for Democrats
I’m not a big poll follower because I know they can be manipulated. But I do consider the Real Clear Politics (RCP) average to be a more reliable indicator of what’s going on.

The RCP average Trump approval rating increased slightly in June. Significantly, the spread between his approval and disapproval went from 12 points to nine points. More significantly, a Harvard-Harris poll showed that Trump’s approval rating among Hispanic voters increased by 10 points during the same time period.


Herman on Fox this morning: Trump focusing on the right thing with SCOTUS pick

Jul 3, 2018 — Herman Cain

All the talk about Roe v. Wade is missing the point, and yet it’s what we get every time there is a Supreme Court opening.

I appeared this morning on Maria Bartiromo’s show on Fox Business Channel this morning, and we got down to the issue of why all the Roe discussion misses the point. This nomination will not be about re-litigating cases from the past:

This is not about changing the outcome of this case or that case. It’s about following the Constitution, and every candidate President Trump is considering is committed to doing that. Stick to the Constitution and you’ll get the judicial outcomes you need to protect freedom.


‘Abolish ICE’ scream ignorant liberals who have no idea what ICE does

Jul 2, 2018 — Herman Cain

‘Abolish ICE’ scream ignorant liberals who have no idea what ICE does
The latest rallying cry of the Democrat liberal wacko left is to “abolish ICE”. This ridiculous notion is being hailed by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York).

Kellyanne Conway gave the most succinct and accurate description of this insane notion to date: It’s ignorant and irrational.

It’s ignorant because most of the wackos responding to Gillibrand and other voices of anarchy have no idea what ICE does. They are being sucked into what started as a false political hyperbole by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), that “babies are being ripped from the arms of their mothers.”


Herman on Fox & Friends: About Obama’s admission that Democrats should be concerned

Herman on Fox & Friends: About Obama's admission that Democrats should be concerned
Obama’s self-regard knows no bounds, but he’s not wrong in this case – although he’s somewhat wrong about the reason for it.

Democrats do not have a positive message and the voters are not going to hand them power because they bash President Trump. What the voters do not want is more Obama-style policies.

Here’s how the conversation went this morning on Fox & Friends:

Blue wave? Yeah, we’ll see about that.




Democrats already losing their cookies in objection to Trump’s non-existent SCOTUS nominee

Democrats already losing their cookies in objection to Trump’s non-existent SCOTUS nominee
President Trump has not even named a SCOTUS nominee yet, and the Democrats and liberal media are in full Fear Factor mode. They want to scare people into believing that anyone he nominates will be bad for the country. Consider some of the scare tactics that have already.

We’ll start with Chuck Schumer:


What I heard on vacation from real people is nothing like what you hear on the news

What I heard on vacation from real people is nothing like what you hear on the news
We just returned from a week of vacation. We encountered dozens of people who were complimentary of conservative (fewer taxes, less government, more individual responsibility) points of view expressed on my radio show, web site, Facebook and my Fox News/Fox Business appearances.

Airline pilots, flight attendants, room service personnel, baggage handlers, restaurant wait staff, drivers, small business owners, big business executives, real retirees and a lot of people I did not even know expressed support of the direction of the nation, and not the liberal media noise chamber.


I’ve got a few things to say to that FBI agent who called Trump voters lazy and stupid

I’ve got a few things to say to that FBI agent who called Trump voters lazy and stupid
A bunch of arrogant FBI agents may think Trump voters are lazy and stupid, but I’ve been through a few things in my life and I know who the real Trump voters are.

So when I was given an opportunity on Fox & Friends to respond to that FBI agent, I didn’t miss it.


The two reasons Nancy Pelosi, for all her insanity, is not sent packing by her party

Jun 11, 2018 — Herman Cain

The two reasons Nancy Pelosi, for all her insanity, is not sent packing by her party
First, Nancy Pelosi called employee bonuses resulting from the Trump tax cuts “crumbs”. Now she claims that record low unemployment is meaningless.

Meaningless! Ask the person who is proud to now have a job. Nancy Pelosi does not know it, but some people would rather have the dignity of a job than more dependency on the government.


Smart CEOs aren’t sweating the search for workers; they’re focused on productivity

Smart CEOs aren’t sweating the search for workers; they’re focused on productivity
When the unemployment rate was reported to have hit a new low-low of 3.8 percent for May, the usual expectation by some media folks is that employers will have a hard time finding employees to fill all those jobs that are being created. That’s true for some, but smart business people also start looking for productivity improvements in their operations.

Technology upgrades, organizational restructuring, realigning responsibilities, streamlining operations and alternative marketing tactics are just some of the ideas a CEO will focus on first, instead of whining about finding more employees. That’s not to say that hiring more people is not on the list of things to focus on, but it’s not usually their first priority.


Here are three conservatives who can win in California, and deserve your support

Here are three conservatives who can win in California, and deserve your support
Last week I was in California to give two speeches to two different Republican groups. One was in Fresno and the other group in LaQuinta.

They were both well attended, and they both showed an unexpected level of conservative enthusiasm. That’s because we’re talking about patriots who support less government, less taxation and more individual responsibility – and are excited about the results being generated by President Trump, his administration and some Republicans in Congress.


There’s no defending the tweet, but I suspect ABC had another motive in cancelling Roseanne

There’s no defending the tweet, but I suspect ABC had another motive in cancelling Roseanne
It’s really not too hard to figure out, is it?

When ABC brought back Roseanne, it was following a recent trend of lots of old TV shows being brought back.


Nancy, the yapping is not helping

Nancy, the yapping is not helping
Nancy Pelosi is the latest yapper about the potential meeting with North Korean dictator, Kim Jung Un. She jumped right out declared President Trump’s decision to not hold the face to face meeting a win for the North Korean dictator.

Now, the possibility of a meeting is still developing.


Here’s why liberals keep trying to silence conservatives, and what we can do about it

Here’s why liberals keep trying to silence conservatives, and what we can do about it
If you can think back this far, you might remember a key moment during one of the 2000 presidential debates between George W. Bush and Al Gore. Gore was losing his patience with the things Bush was saying, and appeared clearly irritated that he had to keep dealing with it.

And he expressed all this with a big sigh. That sigh was more meaningful than people realized. It signified the left’s complete indignation over the idea that conservative thought even exists and has to be dealt with.


That’s about enough of Maxine Waters’s race-baiting nonsense

May 15, 2018 — Herman Cain

U.S. Rep. Maxine WatersWhenever black Democrats do not have a factual or credible argument to claim racism, they just go ahead and claim it anyway. This happened recently on the floor of the House of Representatives, during an exchange between U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pennsylvania), and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California).

Kelly was defending the automobile industry, of which he is a part through his family business ties. Waters was claiming his industry was guilty of racist practices. This is typical of black Democrats who have no credible information. They know they are unlikely to be challenged because white people find it uncomfortable to disagree with blacks claiming racism.
