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.


Welcome to the club, Candace Owens

Welcome to the club, Candace Owens
This is what it’s like to be an ABC – an American Black Conservative. I’m sure I don’t need to tell Candace Owens that, since she holds her own just fine.

But it’s important at times for us to stick up for each other, and to let each other know that none of us deal with this garbage alone.

Kanye says ‘slavery for 400 years, that feels like a choice’; here’s why he’s rightKanye West doesn’t need me to defend him. He’s a big man and he’s perfectly capable of taking care of himself.

But I want to amplify and illuminate some of his words from recent days, especially the ones he uttered on the now-exploding video from his discussion in the TMZ newsroom yesterday.


Not that you’re going to hear about it, but America got an awful lot of good news in the past

Trump, Oval Office
I can’t remember when, in over eight years of doing a radio show, I’ve had so much good news to talk about in one day.

Do you realize how many positive results this country enjoyed just in the past week?

It’s almost as if someone has figured out how to effectively govern this country. Consider:


We’re outnumbered in the media, but here’s how we can overcome it

We’re outnumbered in the media, but here’s how we can overcome it
The results this administration is getting should be an asset for our side, but the rhetoric of the liberals suggests none of this has even happened. The liberal voices outnumber us because the mainstream media are infested with anti-Trump voices who will sing the same tune no matter what the president and his supporters in Congress do.

But! We must keep speaking out, and louder!


Democrat nonsense on the Syria attack is even more absurd than normal

Democrat nonsense on the Syria attack is even more absurd than normal
No action against Syria for its chemical attack on its own people was not an option. The president and his advisors made that very clear. But no matter what decision was made the Democrats would not agree. That’s just what they do, to the point of being in denial and even deceiving their voters with false and fabricated information.

Example! Before the smoke cleared over the three Syrian targets, several Democrats claimed that President Trump did not have the authority to approve such an attack. The politically correct response to that claim would be that it’s not true. The direct response is that it’s a lie. They should read and understand all of the Constitution.

Web sites had traffic before Facebook came along, right? Maybe we’re going back to the future . .
Quick: Before you read this, bookmark this site. Do it now.

Now I’ll explain why.

Facebook has only existed since 2005, and yet I’ve got some astonishing trivia for you about the Internet:


Latest completely insane things Nancy Pelosi, liberals are saying about Trump’s job performanc

Apr 9, 2018 — Herman Cain


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is still saying the Trump tax cuts only benefit the rich. That’s a lie. She also says that the middle class ends up with a tax increase. That’s another lie.

Then Representative Ted Lieu (D-California) says the Trump tax cuts will lead to cuts in Social Security and Medicare. That’s another big fat lie! Watch for yourself right here.

The truly sad part of this narrative by the Democrats is that the people attending this Town Hall meeting actually believe them. It’s a continuation of Trump Derangement Syndrome, and they will continue this narrative all the way through the November mid-term elections.

Fox News Video: Herman Cain and Neil Cavuto discuss Amazon, the stock selloff

Why do I disagree with President Trump on the matter of Amazon and the Postal Service? It’s not because he’s wrong about the underlying problems at the USPS. It’s because it’s the Postal Service and not Amazon that’s the real problem.

Amazon is rationally responding to the market position of the Postal Service.

Having said that, I do believe Amazon is getting rather big for its britches, but even there I think the market will take care of the problem.

Here’s the discussion we had on Your World yesterday:

What do you think?




Keep fighting for positive results

Apr 2, 2018 — Herman Cain


I recall from my studies of mathematics that the sum of all positive numbers and all negative numbers is zero. I suddenly realized that this is the quest of politics in hopes of tipping the balance more toward negative than positive!

Results of a tax plan that’s working, regulatory rollbacks that are working, a confirmed Supreme Court Justice who is voting conservative, challenging the illegitimacy of sanctuary cities, improved trade deals with other countries, and bringing brutal dictators to the diplomatic table for discussions are all positive developments.


Fox News Video: Amazon is not the problem with the Post Office

Apr 1, 2018 — Herman Cain

On Fox & Friends I was asked my thoughts on the president’s tweets concerning Amazon and the Post Office.

The truth is there is a lot more wrong with the Post Office than this, and in all honesyt Amazon is the least of the Post Office’s problems.

Watch it for yourself and let me know what you think of my take:

Dick’s Sporting Goods realizes: Taking sides in politics is going to hurt business

Dick's Sporting Goods realizes: Taking sides in politics is going to hurt business
I can’t think of a single time when it’s benefited a company to abandon sound business principles in favor of political posturing. Is certainly didn’t help Target. It hasn’t helped Starbucks. And it didn’t take long for Dick’s Sporting Goods to realize it’s decision to pander to the gun grabbers would exact a serious price:

Dick’s Sporting Goods reported disappointing holiday sales numbers in part due to weak demand for one-time hot brands like Under Armour.


Trump’s proposed tariffs are the retaliation

Trump's proposed tariffs are the retaliation
One of the hysterical objections from those who oppose President Trump’s proposed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum is that he is going to start a trade war, because other countries will retaliate with tariffs of their own.

There’s one very big problem with that argument: Other countries already have such tariffs. In fact, President Trump’s proposal isn’t the start to anything. He is the one retaliating against the unfair tariffs already levied by other countries.

In an interview last week on CNBC, Nucor CEO John Ferriola pointed out that the European Union imposes a 25 percent value-added tax on just about all goods coming into its member nations from outside. That puts American manufacturers at a distinct disadvantage as they seek to penetrate EU markets. Where is all the shrieking about the EU starting a trade war?


U.S. consumer confidence highest in 14 years

U.S. consumer confidence highest in 14 years
The importance of consumer confidence to economic growth cannot be overstated. When people feel good about the economy, they confidently spend and invest their money. Sometimes you get false consumer confidence that spurs people to spend for a period of time, but when it’s not based on something fundamentally sound, it doesn’t last for long.

The most recently announced measure of consumer confidence, which comes from two well-established sources on the subject, suggests U.S. consumers are ignoring the political noise and coming to the conclusion that we’re in for good things in 2018:


‘Crumbs’ keep coming, and Democrats keep lying

'Crumbs' keep coming, and Democrats keep lying
One of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas is Lakeside, on the lower level of the Wynn Hotel. Everything on the menu is great! Fresh fish, other seafood, beef and salads, you name it! I’ve tried them all!

Lisa is one of the bartenders. I usually have my meal at the bar if I’m dinning in a hurry. She is an admitted liberal thinker, and we usually have some spirited debates about the political issues of the day. I would usually avoid such debates when I’m on a relaxation trip, but she is a “savable” liberal.


What if Trump is proving a ‘not normal’ president is not a problem after all?

Feb 18, 2018 — Herman Cain

What if Trump is proving a 'not normal' president is not a problem after all?

I know it seems like a long time ago, but in the run-up to the 2016 election, the predictions of catastrophe in the event of a Donald Trump win were quite something.

  • He would touch off a nuclear war, we were told, with some intemperate remark on Twitter.
  • He would destroy the vaunted public institutions of America with behavior decidedly un-presidential.
  • He would diminish the office by getting into flame wars with people like Rosie O’Donnell and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • He would empower Nazis, fanatics and haters to run rampant in the streets.
  • He would be an authoritarian strongman who would shred the Constitution and trample on everyone’s rights.

Quit dreaming of a better yesterday

Quit dreaming of a better yesterday
Last Sunday I was one of seven American Black Conservatives (ABCs) who received the African American Trailblazers award for some of the unique achievements I have been blessed to accomplish during my life. John Sibley Butler was one of the other recipients who reminded us that it is good to observe our black history, but we must “quit dreaming of a better yesterday.”


The two-year budget deal: A spending explosion with a mess of tax favors mixed in

The two-year budget deal: A spending explosion with a mess of tax favors mixed in
Although we’ve already told you there is a silver lining or two, the fact remains that the two-year budget deal negotiated by Republican and Democrat leaders in Congress is exactly the opposite of what the country needs right now. It’s true that it will more adequately fund the military, and that’s important. But in order to get there, Republicans basically allowed the Democrats to remove all restraints on federal spending, while messing up the revenue stream by extending 35 tax breaks that were supposed to expire.

This is exactly the opposite of the fiscal discipline we need, and it’s exactly the opposite of the tax simplification we should be moving toward.


Democrats are defending the indefensible

Democrats are defending the indefensible
In God we trust. The Flag. The National Anthem.

When elected Democrats sat unmoved during the State of the Union address last week as the president embraced these defining symbols of our nation, I was shocked, embarrassed and somewhat frightened.

I was shocked because it showed that their true feelings were politics over patriotism. We can have differences of political opinions, but there should be no differences of our love for our country, and what it has allowed all of us to become. Most of us are not divided on patriotism.
