Week Two of the High Tech Lynching of Cain: The Left Doubles Down (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS November 07, 2011

The progressive left is outraged that their high-tech lynching of Herman Cain has not yet accomplished its goal.  This morning, I heard a radio talk show host say that the Cain story is falling like “a lead balloon.”  Not so fast, Jamie Allman! Never count out enraged progressives.  They’re doubling down.

Today, we will be treated to a new accusation by a new accuser (let’s hope this one is IDENTIFIED).  This accuser will be represented at a press conference by none other than “celebrity attorney” Gloria Allred.

Calling out the big dogs now.  And these dogs will worry that bone until it breaks.  Doubling down.

Gloria Allred has been described as a “feminist crusader”.  Allred also interjected herself into the Anthony Weiner affair.   Some say her goal is simply to make money. But fellow blogger, jbjd, has written extensively about Allred’s shenanigans on behalf of the progressive left; e.g., in this story about the help that Allred gave to Jerry Brown in his campaign against Meg Whitman in CA.  Be sure to read in the same story about the role that Allred  played during the 2008 DNC Services Corporation Presidential Nominating Convention, which ended with Hillary Clinton being thrown under the bus in favor of the selected one, Barack Obama, an outcome that jbjd described as “a coup.” 

Although NBC says they have not “confirmed the [new] allegations,” that didn’t stop them from splashing the promised smear all over the front page of their website

In the same vein, it’s reported that Politico, last week, ran 94 stories (as of the time of the report) about these ANONYMOUS, NONSPECIFIC allegations against Cain.  How many stories has Politico run about the very SPECIFIC allegations that Mr. Larry Sinclair made against Barack Obama during the campaign of 2008?  Allegations of cocaine use and gay sex.  I don’t recall that story percolating to the top of the lamestream media mudpot.

Last week, we were subject to the irony of lamestream media personalities excoriating Herman Cain for allegedly offending anonymous women via sexual innuendo, when these same “journalists” fiercely defended Bill Clinton, who was publicly accused by Ms. Paula Jones, to whom Clinton eventually (and publicly) paid an enormous settlement for very clear and specific allegations of sexual harassment. The same Bill Clinton who had a sexual relationship in the Oval Office with an intern over thirty years his junior, which led to his impeachment, during which the lamestream media fervently defended him.

In their anger that their orchestrated ploy to bring down Cain’s candidacy didn’t work, the lamestream lashed out in anger, in an angry red tantrum of blatant racism against the black conservative.  The newest charge against Cain? He’s starring in a “minstrel show.”   Or he’s a minstrel because he’s also a gospel singer:

Painting Cain as the latest high-profile victim of white liberals who abhor black conservatives won’t lessen the significance of the sexual-harassment charges. Nor will his breaking into song Tuesday at a National Press Club news conference — which seemed more minstrel than presidential — make the charges go away.

So they’re resurrecting a RACIST meme that began when Cain first came onto the scene.  But they do so cleverly. They either have a black “contributor” make the charge, as in the two examples above, or, if the writer is white, he or she simply “reports” (dredges up) old charges of “minstrelsy” originally made by a black person.  One “sometime respectable Negro” dredged up his own old charge of minstrelsy against Cain. Here’s another from a “black bourgeoisie perspective.”  Somehow, I doubt these persons are truly bourgeoisie.  If so, they’d be supporting the proud, successful, capitalist Cain, who poses an existential threat to the progressive left, who believe that all blacks should forever vote in lockstep with and for them.

The press conference will be held shortly.  Stay tuned.

Open thread.

  1. Leza,

    Also with Leo’s black background on his blog, I have so much trouble reading it. It messes with my eyes something terrible. I have to read it in spurts, so I probably just ended up skipping over that when I read it. And I have a friend that can’t read his blog at all because of medical issues. So I know that I’m not the only person who has problems.

    I guess that I just missed that part that you told me about.

    • Leo’s black background is hard to read. I highlight it as though I were going to copy it and then it is easier to read. I also wish he would make it a normal white background.

  2. Obama is signing another Executive Order for cutting government waste! Congress hasn’t worked fast enough for him! Claire McCaskill has been involved in this new order along with VP Biden. They have looked at travel, IT services, selling office buildings, printing, etc. where waste of monies was found. Cabinet members will report to Obama their savings that they find.

    We will know what is in it when we see it! Obama is bypassing Congress once again! Was this new executive order directed by Soros and Podesta? This is Obama campaigning once again…all show! Obama is a joke.

    • Did you see this latest outrage? Obama starts another skirmish in the WAR ON CHRISTMAS. At first, I was sure this had to be a joke; it’s not:

      President Obama’s Agriculture Department today announced that it will impose a new 15-cent charge on all fresh Christmas trees—the Christmas Tree Tax—to support a new Federal program to improve the image and marketing of Christmas trees.

      In the Federal Register of November 8, 2011, Acting Administrator of Agricultural Marketing David R. Shipman announced that the Secretary of Agriculture will appoint a Christmas Tree Promotion Board. The purpose of the Board is to run a “program of promotion, research, evaluation, and information designed to strengthen the Christmas tree industry’s position in the marketplace; maintain and expend existing markets for Christmas trees; and to carry out programs, plans, and projects designed to provide maximum benefits to the Christmas tree industry” (7 CFR 1214.46(n)). And the program of “information” is to include efforts to “enhance the image of Christmas trees and the Christmas tree industry in the United States” (7 CFR 1214.10).

      To pay for the new Federal Christmas tree image improvement and marketing program, the Department of Agriculture imposed a 15-cent fee on all sales of fresh Christmas trees by sellers of more than 500 trees per year (7 CFR 1214.52). And, of course, the Christmas tree sellers are free to pass along the 15-cent Federal fee to consumers who buy their Christmas trees.

      Acting Administrator Shipman had the temerity to say the 15-cent mandatory Christmas tree fee “is not a tax nor does it yield revenue for the Federal government” (76 CFR 69102). The Federal government mandates that the Christmas tree sellers pay the 15-cents per tree, whether they want to or not. The Federal government directs that the revenue generated by the 15-cent fee goes to the Board appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture to carry out the Christmas tree program established by the Secretary of Agriculture. Mr. President, that’s a new 15-cent tax to pay for a Federal program to improve the image and marketing of Christmas trees.

      Nobody is saying President Obama doesn’t have authority to impose his new Christmas Tree Tax — his Administration cites the Commodity Promotion, Research and Information Act of 1996. Just because the Obama Administration has the legal power to impose its Christmas Tree Tax doesn’t mean it should do so.” http://blog.heritage.org/2011/11/08/obama-couldnt-wait-his-new-christmas-tree-tax/

      What next? A “fee” (aka illegal tax) on MENORAH CANDLES? I guarantee we’ll never see any “fee” on halal meat.

      Another stupid misstep by the increasingly stupid, idiotic but full-of-hubris administration of Barry the Great. Or should I say, Bari the Great?

      • Of course, this Christmas Tree Tax is probably another Alinsky distraction, to keep Fast and Furious and Holder off the front pages.

      • That was fast. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/11/obama-administration-to-delay-new-15-cent-christmas-tree-fee/

        “The U.S. Department of Agriculture is going to delay implementation and revisit a proposed new 15 cent fee on fresh-cut Christmas trees, sources tell ABC News. …White House spokesman Matt Lehrich told ABC News that despite some media coverage, “I can tell you unequivocally that the Obama Administration is not taxing Christmas trees. What’s being talked about here is an industry group deciding to impose fees on itself to fund a promotional campaign, similar to how the dairy producers have created the ‘Got Milk?’ campaign.”

        Nonetheless, the criticisms have apparently had an impact as the program is now being delayed.

        Bah, humbug?”

        DELAY. What? Until NEXT Christmas? When the election is over and Barry (he hopes) is safely ensconced again so then he can RULE forevermore?

      • A good thing…calling it like it is! Clapping for Gov. Walker!

        Atheists Angry After Wis. Gov. Changes ‘Holiday’ Tree Back to ‘Christmas’ Tree
        November 8, 2011

        Love him or hate him, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is a man who sticks by his convictions. He started by making Wisconsin more business-friendly, then took on the public sector unions. And now, the state lawmaker that has solidified a national name for himself is taking on atheists and non-believers — over the state’s “holiday” tree.

        On Monday, Walker decided that he wanted to shake things up a bit. Rather than following recent tradition and referring to the (Christmas) tree that is placed in the Wisconsin’s Capitol Rotunda as a “holiday tree,” he’s changing course. For the past 25 years, lawmakers have referred to the evergreen that is decorated with ornaments and a star with this benign, uncategorized reference. Now, Walker plans to, once again, call the tree what it is — a Christmas tree.

        From 1916 until 1985, the state did, indeed, refer to the tree as such. But in 1985, when lawmakers began getting nervous about government endorsement of religion, they began referring to it as a holiday tree. Walker, though, doesn’t want to continue doing so.

        Rather than making a big deal out of the change, the governor simply put out a press release that referred to the holiday decoration as a Christmas tree. The release doesn’t note that any change in reference occurred. A portion of the document reads: Today Governor Walker asked art teachers, parents, and youth all across Wisconsin to help the State of Wisconsin decorate the Capitol Christmas Tree. The theme of the tree this year will be Honoring 163 years of Wisconsin’s Veterans

        http://www.theblaze.com/stories/atheists-angry-after-wis-gov-changes-holiday-tree-back-to-christmas-tree/

      • I heard that the government tabled this whole idea after public outrage! Supposedly, it was the Christmas tree sellers that wanted the government to impose the fee so they could advertise the trees. Why would the government need to be involved in the first place? Did they want the taxpayers to pay for advertising of trees?

        A Christmas tree needs an image make-over of some kind to help its sales? How would you improve the image of a Christmas tree? Cra, cra, crazy!

  3. http://news.yahoo.com/ap-exclusive-accuser-filed-complaint-next-job-080946066.html

    Kraushaar is a serial accuser. And last night, Cain’s spokesperson said on Hannity that Josh the Politico writer is her son. He said their information was that she’s his mother, but the obit doesn’t seem to line up with that. Hannity seemed to know about Josh because he said right away that Josh is too young to be her husband. [UPDATE: Gateway Pundit says Josh and Karen aren’t related. It remains to be seen. What do they call “related?” It was a mistake for Cain’s guy to say they confirmed it. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2011/11/cains-chief-of-staff-falsely-links-accuser-kraushaar-to-politico-video/ ]

    “A woman who settled a sexual harassment complaint against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain in 1999 complained three years later at her next job about unfair treatment, saying she should be allowed to work from home after a serious car accident and accusing a manager of circulating a sexually charged email, The Associated Press has learned.

    Karen Kraushaar, 55, filed the complaint while working as a spokeswoman at the Immigration and Naturalization Service in the Justice Department in late 2002 or early 2003, with the assistance of her lawyer, Joel Bennett, who also handled her earlier sexual harassment complaint against Cain in 1999. Three former supervisors familiar with Kraushaar’s complaint, which did not include a claim of sexual harassment, described it for the AP under condition of anonymity because the matter was handled internally by the agency and was not public.

    To settle the complaint at the immigration service, Kraushaar initially demanded thousands of dollars in payment, a reinstatement of leave she used after the accident earlier in 2002, promotion on the federal pay scale and a one-year fellowship to Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, according to a former supervisor familiar with the complaint. The promotion itself would have increased her annual salary between $12,000 and $16,000, according to salary tables in 2002 from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

    Kraushaar told the AP she considered her employment complaint “relatively minor” and she later dropped it.

    “The concern was that there may have been discrimination on the job and that I was being treated unfairly,” Kraushaar said. … Kraushaar left her job at the immigration service after dropping the complaint in 2003, and she went to work at the Treasury Department.”

    AMAZING that the AP is covering this. My local paper said that Cain “sought to muddy the reputation” of his accuser(s). They didn’t, of course, report the facts about what their accusations are doing to Cain’s family. I heard that Cain’s new lawyer is a BIG GUN with loads of “credibility” and that if these women don’t step lightly, Cain and his new lawyer WILL SUE THEM. I hope he does. That’s the only way the whole truth will come out.

    “Kraushaar will reveal specifics of her allegations against Cain at the joint news conference Bennett is trying to arrange with other accusers.”

    Let’s hope that at THIS press conference, the same reporter asks EVERY ONE OF THESE WOMEN if they’ll take LIE DETECTOR tests. How outrageous was that, btw? They ask Herman Cain, a candidate for POTUS, a black man, if he’ll take a lie detector to “prove” he’s telling the truth! Innocent until proven guilty is not the media’s standard for Herman Cain.

    I heard the most outrageous, racist analogy EVER on Hannity last night. His liberal guest, Tamara Holder, said that CAIN IS TIGHTENING THE “NOOSE” AROUND HIS OWN NECK and that HE HUNG HIMSELF!

    She seriously said that! And Hannity let it go. Jay Sekulow, his guest, also said nothing about that blatantly RACIST ANALOGY. But she’s a liberal so she get a pass. Maybe also because she’s their star lib on FOX. One of their “babes”. (She needs to sue whoever did the lip puff job for her.)

    Had HANNITY said this, or SEKULOW, it would be front page news all over the papers and blogosphere.

  4. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/movies/2011/11/clint-eastwood-talks-politics-whos-the-one-democrat-that-he-voted-for.html

    Clint Eastwood says he always voted for Republicans.

    “When it comes to the current crop of Republican presidential candidates, if Eastwood is enthusiastic about anyone, it’s Herman Cain. “I love Cain’s story,” he says. “He’s a guy who came from nowhere and did well, obviously against heavy odds. He’s a doer and a straight-talker, which I don’t see enough of from either party.”

    He’s not as bullish on Mitt Romney. As a film icon, Eastwood has been fiercely protective of his image, but he’s not especially enamored by that attitude in a politician. When Eastwood was in Massachusetts in 2002, filming “Mystic River,” Romney was running for governor there. “I saw a lot of him and you have to admit — he looks like a president,” Eastwood recalled with a tone that you’d have to describe as being slyly sarcastic. “I mean, if you were casting a movie where you needed someone to play president, you’d definitely pick him.”

    He sounded equally skeptical about Rick Perry. When I suggested that Perry, as a rugged, gun-toting Texan, would probably crave a photo op with Eastwood even more than with Donald Trump, Eastwood said with a shrug, “If he wanted to meet me, he might be a little disappointed.””

    High praise for Herman from the High Plains Drifter. 🙂

  5. Another day, another DESPICABLE RACIST ANALOGY BY A PROGRESSIVE MEMBER OF THE CABALIST:

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/11/09/david_gregory_no_grand_wizard_in_gop_right_now_to_force_cain_to_go_away.html

    “David Gregory, NBC News: “Well there is no, you know, Grand Wizard in the party right now who can really force the issue. I’ve talked to Cain’s advisers in Iowa, they think their support is still strong there, that it’s not falling. There may be cracks in the foundation according to pollsters I’m talking to, that his numbers may be starting to shift but right now core support remains there.”

    UPDATE: David Gregory has apologized and tweeted the following: “‘Wizard’ remark this morning was a very poor choice of words. Did not mean to make that connection at all. Was not thinking. I apologize””

    No, the problem was that he was thinking… of how he could smear Herman Cain AND the Republican Party all at once. KKK, anyone? So funny, isn’t it?

  6. Muslim Homeland Security Advisor Accused of Leaking Documents to Prove ‘Islamophobia,’ Damage Rick Perry
    Nov. 8 Snips

    Out of a 26-member advisory council, the Department of Homeland Security allowed just one advisor, Mohammed Elibiary, special access to a nationwide database that includes terror watch lists and FBI sensitive reports. Now, the Texas Muslim is being accused of leaking some of those documents to the media with the stated goal of damaging Texas governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry. Elibiary asserts that the documents show what he calls the “Islamophobia” of Texas government agencies.

    In 2010, he was named to a working group that helped shape the Obama administration’s counterterrorism strategy. Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano later swore in Elibiary as part of her advisory council.

    “You read his writings, he is defending Sayyid Qutb…a guy that Osama bin Laden referred to and studied to give him a basis for his acts of violence,” Republican Congressman Louis Gohmert said. “And (Napolitano) puts the guy on the Homeland Security Advisory Committee, gives him a secret clearance?” Gohmert, who grilled Napolitano about Elibary at an October congressional hearing, is now calling for an investigation into the leak case.

    But CBN notes an even larger problem could be at play. Gohmert told the news agency that by allowing someone like Elibiary into its inner-sanctum, the U.S. government is allowing radical Islamists an intimate look into U.S. counterterrorism operations. “They‘re bringing in the Muslim Brotherhood to the inner sanctum and saying ’Look, they like us! This means peace in our time!‘ And what they’re doing is subjecting this nation to real danger,” he said.

    Meanwhile, it remains unclear why Elibiary was given exclusive access to the DHS database in the first place.

    The lastest from WH Insider AND he addresses the Cain situation and talks about WHY everybody MUST vote for WHOMEVER the RINOs pick. Hold our noses again because we can’t afford another term for Barry.

    “Insider: We have an administration directly responsible for the killing of hundreds of civilians in Mexico. The killing of our own border agents. The wasting of billions of taxpayer dollars that went back into the hands of Obama campaign donors. A Justice Department that dismissed a clearly proven voter intimidation case – that was on record declaring its intent to ignore race-based crimes where Whites were the victims. The shutting down of energy production industries in the Gulf – only to turn around and allow other nations the right to drill our oil. This president allows Middle East nations that were once at least somewhat cooperative with the interests of the United States to be over-run by Muslim extremists – and they call that kind of thing a fu—ing victory for the administration! Talk about your “Mission Accomplished” moment! This president golfs more than he governs. He doesn’t meet with his own cabinet. There’s people in that administration who have never spoken to the man! When he is at the White House he sits up in that second floor room of his watching TV and waiting for the next batch of orders to come to him from Jarrett. A president that embraces radicalized union-backed protesters calling for socialism, who destory property and rape the weak. He has repeatedly pissed off Democrats and Republicans at every turn. Every fu—ing turn. At every fu—ing level. This guy has sh-t on the office. Sh-t on the responsibility. Sh-t on the history and tradition of the office that he, by some tragic accident of which I personally played a part it – now occupies.

    So I ask you – you seem to think I got all the answers – so I ask you…HOW THE FU-K DOES THAT HAPPEN? HOW DOES IT CONTINUE TO HAPPEN? Because I don’t know. I’ve seen it. I’ve done it – just about all there is to do in this town…and I don’t know how it’s happening.

    All I do know is it’s gotta stop. That man – Barack Obama…he cannot be elected again in 2012. He must be defeated. All of them. This country cannot be so far gone as to not recognize that fact.”

    I couldn’t have written a better indictment myself.

  8. Breaking: Dems [the kids] Walk Away from Super Committee
    November 9, 2011

    Latest update on the lack of progress for Dems and Republicans to reach a tax deal. Yesterday Democrats of the [unconstitutional] Super Committee rejected Republicans’ offer to “raise federal tax collections by nearly $300 billion over the next decade.”

    Senator Rand Paul exclusively has JUST told Sean that not only are Democrats rejecting offers put on the table, but now they won’t even continue to negotiate and have “walked away from the table…refusing to talk to the Republicans.”

    Paul warns the American people that this is all about Obama’s reelection, and the taxpayers livelihood is of no concern to Obama and the Democrats.

    http://www.hannity.com/article/breaking-news-dems-walk-away-from-super-committee/14602

    • Paul: I have news straight from sources close to the Super Committee that the Democrats have walked away from the table and they’re refusing to talk to the Republicans about a deal and they will not counter any offers and basically there’s an impasse and it’s starting to look like they don’t want any deal at all.

      Sean: This was all being telegraphed by Chuck Shumer yesterday, I am sure you saw it on TV. They want to say that because Republicans will not raise taxes they are rigid. That we are not going to have a deal on the economy.I think the democrats are just gonna be happy gutting the defense department, which is part of this deal.

      Paul: And the truth is quite the opposite the republicans have offered tax reform that lowers tax rates and closes loopholes.The president talks about millionaires not paying their taxes, we are trying to close some loopholes, but we want to be part of tax reform. We have offered a serious credible offer, but basically they have walked away from the table.

  9. Nov. 9, 2011 – Crowd boos leftist Moderator Maria Bartiromo when Cain is questioned on sex allegations! This is at the Michigan debate for candidates. The Republican crowd applauds his answer. I hope Maria was humiliated because of the crowd’s response.

  10. Maria Bartiromo: What’s To Keep Your Plan From Going To 19-19-19?

  11. Reggie Love, Obama ‘body man,’ to leave White House by year’s end
    November 09, 2011 Snips Photo..

    Reggie Love, a key member of the Obama entourage, is planning to leave the White House by the end of the year, people close to the administration said. Love, 30, is a popular, gregarious figure in the White House. A onetime forward for the Duke Blue Devils basketball team, Love started out as a staff assistant in Obama’s Senate office after college, rising [ rising?] to become his personal assistant, known as the “body man.” [Interesting tag for Reggie!]

    Love’s exit comes at a time of transition for the administration: several longtime advisers have left over the last year, in keeping with the time-honored tradition that close aides do not abandon the president immediately before an e ection. But Love’s position may be among the most difficult for Obama to fill. [Ya don’t say!}

    Obama has described Love as “the person who keeps me on schedule.”[Fire him, as you’re always late to everything according to the press!]

    Obama once described him as a “little brother. Among the recognizable members of the Obama team in public – he is a towering 6-foot-4 — Love is also a constant presence in the West Wing and by the president’s side during every trip away from home.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/reggie-love-obama-body-man-to-leave-white-house-by-years-end/2011/11/09/gIQAvjU06M_story.html?wpisrc=al_politics

    • Rising. 🙂 OMG! “Love’s position?” “For Obama to FILL?” Sounds like this writer knows something and can’t resist the Freudian slips.

      The Penn State story too close for comfort?

      If Reggie is going to Hawaii, Indonesia, and Australia with Barry, let’s hope he comes back. Out of the administration, what might Reggie do? Write a book? Just sayin’.

    Daniel Pipes on the disastrous consequences of regarding democracy as principle in the Middle East

    Pipes has a nice piece on our state of impotent discombulation. He does not say anything about democracy not being the correct criterion of legitimacy—very likely he does not understand this point himself—but he nicely sums up the confusion that is created when U.S. policy-makers treat democracy as principle in the Arab-Muslim world:

    •Democracy pleases us but brings hostile elements to power.
    •Tyranny betrays our principles but leaves pliable rulers in power.

    “As interest conflicts with principle,” says Pipes, “consistency goes out the window.”

    But is inconsistency really the problem? Obama has actually been perfectly consistent. Where dictators are friendly or pliable, he throws them to the wolves (demanding that Ghaddafi and Mubarak leave). Where they are hostile to the U.S. and not at all pliable, he is silent and unmoved when protesters are slaughtered en masse (Iran and Syria).

    The obvious explanation is that Obama himself is not just a Muslim, but is an Islamofascist. (The evidence for both is overwhelming.) He skillfully uses the Democratic Party’s immoral priority of democracy over republicanism to advance democracy where the outcome will be anti-republican, and suppress it where republicanism is likely to prevail.

    The key is Iran. A democratic Iran would almost certainly embrace liberty/republicanism, but so long as it remains in the hands of the Islamofascists, it can usurp every populist movement in the area to the Islamofascist side. Hence Obama’s determination to see that Iran gets The Bomb.

  14. Is it just me or do you find the WND website to be extremely annoying? It takes so long to load, what with all their ADS.

    • Agree…it is the new giant ads that won’t close that are really annoying!

      I sent them a comment as to how aggravating those ada are and that their ads should remain on the sidebars. Opening any articles now is taking much to long. The more comments they get, the faster they will get rid of selling and placing those ads.

    ‘Fiance’ of Cain accuser now ‘ex-fiance’
    Snips

    November 9, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — A northwest suburban man says he needs to clear the air after coming to the support of his fiancee, who accuses GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain of making a sexual play for her.

    For starters, Sharon Bialek isn’t his fiancee, said Mark Harwood in an exclusive interview on Wednesday night. “We were engaged last year in June but I think there have been some assumptions that Sharon still lives here in Mundelein with me” Harwood told the I-Team. “Sharon and her son moved out in February of this year and now live in their own home … so effectively we’re no longer engaged.”

    Even though photos of Bialek still hang on his walls, Harwood says that she and her son live in a Glenview townhome-
    one that he does not own.

    “I’ve never supported her financially in the four years that we were together” he said on Wednesday night, attempting to set the record straight after some reports had him supporting Ms. Bialek.

    All of the negative comments and innuendo have been aimed at dirtying up Ms. Bialek according to Harwood, who says he sees her “from time to time.”He told the I-Team that Bialek isn’t out to make money off of the Cain accusation and that “I’m certainly not about any gain from any of this. I don’t want to be really part of it.”

    Mr. Harwood is unemployed, but says he received a sizable severance from his last job with a Chicago pharmaceutical company and is now looking for work as a business consultant.

    • Do we believe anything these people say? Who’s paying for her current digs? It’s like with her being a registered Republican. Happened just in 2006, as the cross-over primary voters, Dems, were fixing to screw up the Republican primary and select McCain as Barry’s opponent.

      Lin Wood is Cain’s anti-defamation lawyer. A big gun.

      “If the women accusing Cain hold a joint news conference, Wood said “I’ll be watching carefully” and respond to it.

      He said in general, anyone considering making public accusations of wrongdoing against another person should carefully consider the wisdom and potential consequences in taking such action.

      “Anyone should think twice before you take that type of action. And I think it’s particularly true when you are making serious accusations against someone running for president of the United States, but I think it’s equally true if you are making those accusations against your next door neighbor.” … Wood said he was retained by Cain and not by his campaign. He said he feels strongly about “guilt by accusation” cases. “I have seen how it has devastated the lives of other clients of mine and I would hate to see it happen to Mr. Cain.””

  24. Poll: Americans Prefer Netanyahu to Obama
    New poll finds that Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel are more popular among Americans than their own president.

    11/11/2011 snips

    Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is enjoying more popularity in the United States than President Barack Obama, a new poll indicates. The results of the poll, which was conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, were published on Thursday by Israel’s Channel 10 News. It involved 800 U.S. citizens who were asked to answer several questions related to Israel, the United States and the Palestinian Authority.

    Netanyahu received an average score of 52.3 in the poll, compared to only 51.5 which Obama received. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas scored 26.8 while his rival Hamas received an average score of 19.5. The Lebanon-based Hizbullah terror group received an average score of 20.1.

    Most of the respondents – 60% – said they believe Netanyahu is making efforts to achieve a peace agreement with the PA. Of these, 11% said that the Prime Minister is making enormous efforts to achieve peace.

    The poll also found that Israel’s popularity has increased among Americans and is at its highest since 2007. The main factor which led to the increase in support for Israel was Abbas’ unilateral statehood bid at the United Nations in September. A majority of respondents, 60%, expressed warm feelings toward the Jewish state, while only 15% said they had cool feelings towards Israel.

    The sympathy towards Israel increased more among supporters of Obama’s Democratic party.

  25. Obama jokes about ‘birther’ row at Hawaii summit
    10:29 am | Sunday, November 13th, 2011 Snips

    HONOLULU – Hosting a major summit in his native Hawaii for the first time, President Barack Obama couldn’t resist a jab at political opponents who question his birth certificate and say he is not American.

    “I want to thank our Hawaiian hosts for the great hospitality,” said Obama, attending a business forum on the eve of the main Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in his birth city of Honolulu on the island of Oahu.
    “As many of you know, this is my birthplace,” he said. “I know that was contested for a while, but I can actually show you the hospital if you want to go down there,” he said, drawing laughter and applause from the audience.

    • Next stop (or the one after Australia) is INDONESIA. BALI, to be exact. He’s hitting all the “home” places. Is AF1 full of money? To firm up those previously bribed folks. Make sure nobody outbids him? How can it be coincidence that he hits Hawaii AND Indonesia? I wonder if Lia’s widower will go to greet him? Will he visit any of his old school chums so they can see if he’s really the guy they remember?

    • You know what I fear is going on? They said that his advisers didn’t want him to go, because of the economy, etc. But Barry HAD TO GO. Just like he had to run to Hawaii to “visit granny” during the heat of the 2008 campaign. Remember? August, right as the SFCOLB issue was heating up and the passport files were being scrubbed. So why now? Why Hawaii and Indonesia? I think, in Hawaii: SANDY-BURGLARIZING the MICROFILM ARCHIVES! The same cabal. The same krewe. Nothing’s changed. If the NATIONAL ARCHIVES aren’t sacrosanct. If the lamestream lets this same cabal get away with stealing from the NATIONAL ARCHIVES, hiding the goods under a construction trailer, and then destroying OUR PROPERTY, all to protect the Clintons, they why in the world wouldn’t Hawaii’s archives be similarly easy-peasy to loot? The media covered for the Clintons and Sandy Burglar by accepting that “sloppy” meme. That Sandy didn’t realize he picked up those papers by mistake. Of course, they brushed off the TRUTH about him hiding them under the trailer and coming back hours later to destroy them. That wasn’t sloppy. That was a CRIME, for which he got a slap on the wrist. And so it began and so it continues.

      Sheriff Arpaio wants the microfilms. The microfilms, like BHO Sr’s INS files, must be disappeared. Barry goes to see to it himself. AND he cannot resist, once again, rubbing it in our noses. He KNOWS what’s been accomplished. Wait and see.

      Indonesia? Whatever money and “bugs” didn’t take care of. And whoever saw to it that Lia spoke her last word. Like the accidents in Kenya that take out unfortunate witnesses. Like the helicopter crashes in Mexico that take out top politicians that fight the cartels.

      This is why the news blackout on Arpaio’s posse. He can, as a law enforcement officer, probably get to see those microfilms, one way or another. He’s a cop. Cops can investigate. Get warrants. I bet so. Barry can’t take the chance. No publicity, though, so nobody puts it together (besides us chickens).

      Those idiots in the audience who laughed? IF they only knew what’s in store for them. God help us.

  26. LC
    Hamstrung Romney

    The reality is with the failed lynching of Herman Cain on the blonde moment, is that Mr. Cain is holding his ground and the real shift in this is Newt Gingrich who has been the Cain friend, is moving up in the polls to eclipse Romney.

    As this blog has pointed out the data on Romney is he is 25% and stuck on stupid in the patricians who cling to him worse than Ron Paul’s few advocates.

    This is vital to understand in this as the solidifying of Newt Gingrich is the bridge to patrician nowhere. Meaning that Romney is not going to do well in Iowa in Caucus situations. He is has not been able to close the deal, and except for liberal New Hampshire he is finished in the GOP race.

    When this swings into the south, this is where Cain and Gingrich will prevail and the other candidates will start falling by the wayside, except of Ron Paul.
    The meaning being, that Romney has peaked at 25% and will not break that margin in picking up Michele Bachmann or Rick Santorum votes……..same is true in Rick Perry, as he erodes, those voters will not move to Romney with Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain moving up in polling numbers.

    Do I like Newt Gingrich? Better than Romney by a 1000 fold, as Newt proved in his Contract with America he kept his word, but he has made bone ass stupid Hillary and Nancy decisions.

    Whether Perry was hit with a radar wave to make him forget things in the debate, is of no matter as he really looks too goober and sounds that way. The worst shots have come at Cain and Gingrich and they survived.
    Romney is the propaganda boy of the patricians and he can not surge.

    Now is the problem of Cain and Gingrich in both Georgians do not make a viable ticket. Either or, though the person who does sort this out, providing no Romney election theft leveraging in the primaries, they will have to choose someone who is viable.
    I would expect with Cain it would be a white Governor or Senator, and Gingrich would choose a female in form, a pretty Michelle Malkin would rock the world, but the choice would point to a latino Conservative.

    Mitt Romney though has been hamstrung in all of this. The numbers are shifting from Perry at this point, and that shift did not go to Romney, but Newt Gingrich is garnering the strength which is a trend, and as Newt packs patrician guile, when the time comes that Romney gets handed his teeth in Iowa, that if Gingrich can take 5% of Romney’s base, Romney will be finished as the Conservative South will trend to what they know in Cain, Gingrich and Perry in the mesquite.

    This is quite lovely, as true Conservatives will never vote for Romney and this blog has pioneered in that declaration in never voting for this fraud, and that includes the general election.

    It all comes down to that magic Obama 30 million vote flip he has to pull of in stealing the election. If the GOP can reach a landslide generation in state votes which will not match an Obama vote flip as in the 2008, 10 million vote switch on McCain, then Obama’s 2012 theft will have to be abandoned like Tom Daschle and Stephanie Herseth Sandlin did in South Dakota.
    If it is close, then like Al Franken stole the Norm Coleman seat in Minnesota, and Obama plagues the end of America again.

    If Perry keeps sinking, and Newt keeps rising, this develops a 3 way race which Romney can not gain traction in.

    This has been the best news to date in trending to get rid of this Obama jr. in the form of this fraud Mitt Romney who belongs in the Democratic National Socialist ticket.

    PS: Yes that was me urging Asian American Michelle Malkin to be the choice in the VP slot as yes she takes patrician money, but she would be just what this movement needs now that Sarah Palin is hiding in Alaska.
    Parents are Filipino, for the Birther issue in she is natural born in Pennsylvania and grew up in New Jersey………both necessary swing states for any GOP win and lives in Colorado, a necessary western aura for the Reagan GOP interior states.

    • I love Michelle Malkin. She speaks like Sarah speaks. Unafraid. That’s how Cain speaks, too. We need a straight talker, not another coifed talking head. If LC says Newt’s rise is good news, great! At least he’s TRULY a genius, unlike Barry. If nothing else convinces you of the abject BIAS of the lamestream, it’s their gleeful reaction to Perry’s brain freeze. At least Perry knows how many states are in this Union. Barry cannot speak about ANY topic without TOTUS.

    • “Malkin was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Philippine citizens Rafaela (née Perez) – a homemaker and teacher – and Apolo DeCastro Maglalang, who was then a physician-in-training.[1] Several months prior to Malkin’s birth, her parents had immigrated to the United States on an employer-sponsored visa.”

        Thanks, Gordo. I still like her, but she’s not eligible if her parents weren’t citizens when she was born. Did somebody say she avoids this issue? Maybe that’s why.

  27. Free Republic is reporting. I question the news article as there aren’t any other articles on the URL. This could be a warning to Larry rather than the truth.

I checked and they haven’t reported this news on Hill Buzz yet. May be more news tomorrow or someone will try to contact him..like CW or Zack.

    LARRY SINCLAIR IS DEAD!
    November 13th 2011 at 11:42 pm by The Editor

    Author of “Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder”, Lawrence W. Sinclair has died tonight near his home in a purported car accident. It was apparently a hit and run. Police say the other driver got away and there was no sign of the other driver or his car.

    In a 2009 shocker, Sinclair revealed in his book stunning revelations about Barack Hussein Obama, including that he had had a gay lover in Illinois. Shortly after addressing the National Press Club in Washington, DC in 2008, Sinclair revealed that Senior Advisor David Axelrod spearheaded a vindictive smear campaign against him, while Vice President Joe Biden and his son Beau arranged for his arrest after the NPC speech.

    The most shocking claim in his 2009 book was the accusation by Sinclair that Obama and Rev. Jeremiah Wright were involved in the murder of Obama’s former lover, choirmaster Donald Young.

    The mysterious circumstances around this accident will surely raise many questions. It is curious that this accident happened late on Sunday night when all the news media is in bed and not paying any attention. We’ll see if it’s reported anywhere tomorrow. [A curious thing to write if this was really valid news.]

      My telephone call with Larry earlier yesterday (before he left for the movie) was one of the most fascinating and revelatory conversations I have had with anyone, ever, and Larry told me things that made my blood run cold. I firmly believe the Democrat Party has used illegal and nefarious means to terrorize this man because he challenges the narrative the Left has run about who Barack Obama really is.

      It’s an incredibly creepy experience…which followed several days of bizarre things that have happened ever since we did that November 7th radio broadcast on Barack Obama being gay. The cyber attacks on HillBuzz.org this weekend and the weird attack on The HillBuzz & Mrs. Fox Radio show archives the other night make me believe someone out there in Obamaland doesn’t want anyone talking about Larry Sinclair.

    Obama’s Newest Excuse: Lazy Americans
    Nov. 14 Snips

    Obama took his You Don’t Love Me Enough reelection tour on the road to the 57th state this weekend on his way to a less hostile, foreign audience.

    No, the stopover wasn’t in Kenya. It was in Hawaii on his way to Bali, Indonesia, as a part of a new election strategy that aims to capture the entire foreign vote for Obama and the Democrats.

    Hey, and why not? No one has done more for those thrifty, industrious, hard working foreign countries than Obama has. And under Obama’s executive amnesty program it’ll be easier than ever for foreigners to register and vote for him via absentee ballot.

    When he said Transforming America, he wasn’t kidding.

    In the stopover in Hawaii, in anticipation of speechifying to foreigners, the President of the United States revised slightly his grand apology speech on behalf of all of us Ugly Americans who are responsible for the world’s ills.
    ~
    Instead, Obama wants everyone to know that the state of the economy in the US and the world has a simple explanation that has nothing to do with him.

    Americans are lazy, says our commander-in-chief. Yep. It’s true.

    “We’ve been a little bit lazy, I think, over the last couple of decades,” said Obama to leaders at the APEC Leaders Summit in Honolulu. “We’ve kind of taken for granted — well, people will want to come here and we aren’t out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new business into America.”

    Yes, that’s us: Ugly, Lazy Americans responsible for the president’s- and the world’s economic troubles.

      • It’s so ridiculous. Like dogs gnawing at bones. Never let go. Never give up. What is WRONG with these people? They’re doubling down again because Herman lost a few points in the polls. Whatever works. By any means necessary. Totally OBAMA. Totally.

        Can you remember EVERY person that you EVER met at a business meeting, a convention, a party? Even IF you sat and talked with them? I don’t remember the names of most of the people that I went to school with for years. Or some of my teachers.

        I know for SURE that I don’t remember the names of every co-worked and especially EVERY person I ever met at business meetings or conventions. Nor can I be sure I’d recognize them if I saw them again.

        This is something Herman Cain did EVERY DAY–shmooze with people. It makes perfect sense that he wouldn’t remember that woman. Is she SO VAIN that she believes she’s totally memorable? What an ego. Imagine, if you will, how many people Herman Cain met in the 40 years of his career! Maybe Bialek also imagines that she hasn’t changed in 14 or so years. Had a kid. Put on weight. Bleached the hair? Older.

  30. FlashBack! 1992

    Sparks Fly in Allred vs. Allred : Courts: Feminist attorney’s former husband is the one drawing media attention at bankruptcy hearing.

    February 26, 1992|SCOTT HARRIS | TIMES STAFF WRITER

    Gloria Allred, the outspoken feminist attorney known for trying cases in both the courtroom and the media, is feeling the sting of such tactics in a long-simmering divorce dispute that has wended its way to U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

    Her adversary is her former husband, William C. Allred, a onetime aerospace entrepreneur who used to be portrayed as a docile spouse overshadowed by his famous wife. He later achieved notoriety as the “estranged husband” convicted of defrauding the U.S. government.

    Snip ~

    The courtroom reunion reflected the tense relations that have existed at least since Bill Allred’s October, 1987, conviction on charges of conspiring to defraud the government by selling counterfeit aircraft parts through his company, Donallco. He still contends he was innocent of criminal wrongdoing.

    ****1987, conviction of William C. Allred on charges of conspiring to defraud the government by selling counterfeit aircraft parts through his company, Donallco.****

    NOW let’s go back even further 1987 ~~~~~~~~

    THE HIDDEN THREAT TO AIR SAFETY A pernicious problem with aircraft maintenance is coming to light. No one wants to talk about it, but substandard and bogus spare parts may be causing crashes.

    By Anna Cifelli Isgro REPORTER ASSOCIATE Arieh Coll
    April 13, 1987

    Snip ~

    She paused. Suddenly, listeners heard a frantic ”Hit the water! Hit the water! Hit the water!” Within seconds the helicopter slammed into the Hudson, killing Dornacker and severely injuring the pilot. Aviation safety officials suspect the crash was caused by a faulty clutch whose parts did not meet government specifications.

    Snip ~

    The most celebrated recent case involves Donallco Inc., a North Hollywood, California, parts maker with $18 million a year in revenues. A federal grand jury indicted Donallco in January for selling bogus engine parts to the Air Force for use in C-130 transport planes flown out of Kelly Air Force Base.

    William Allred, chief executive of the privately held company for the past 30 years, was named as a defendant along with his daughter, Teresa, a director of the company, and two other officers. In February all four pleaded not guilty. The case will go to trial sometime this spring. If they are convicted, Allred and the two officers face up to five years in prison on each of the 15 counts in the indictment and a total of $1 million in fines.

    Allred is married to a well-known feminist lawyer, Gloria Allred, from whom he was legally separated last year. Her firm continues to represent Donallco. William Allred declined FORTUNE’s request for an interview. A lawyer for the company says, ”We believe the company and the individuals will be completely vindicated in court.” Donallco has been accused of peddling bogus parts before. In the late 1970s, General Signal, whose New York Air Brake division makes hydraulic pumps used in the landing gear of Boeing 727s and 737s and in many other commercial and military planes, sued Donallco for making counterfeit pumps and attaching New York Air Brake nameplates to them.

    The scam was discovered only when a customer returned the parts to New York Air Brake and the company saw that the pistons in the Donallco pumps were chrome plated instead of solid chrome. Plating peels off with use, which can cause the pump and ultimately the landing gear to fail. A California judge penalized Donallco $100,000; the company has appealed. The government’s indictment of Donallco casts rare light on the byzantine workings of the spare parts market. Donallco claimed to carry the largest inventory of aircraft parts ”of any independent supplier in the world.” The government accuses it of peddling reconditioned and counterfeit parts as military surplus that had already passed strict safety tests. The sales allegedly involved hundreds of aircraft parts, including couplings and shafts for fuel systems in T-56 turboprop engines used in C-130 transport planes. The indictment noted that to prevent visitors — and presumably FAA inspectors — from seeing the bogus parts, Donallco employees removed them from the manufacturing floor and hid them. A number of Donallco employees suspected something unsavory was going on. A former worker recalls that a manager bragged that the counterfeit parts were better than the real thing. In a deposition taken for a racial discrimination suit against the company last year, another former employee revealed what he considered to be defects in certain couplings used in the C-130 engines. The couplings did not fit together properly, but the employee was told to put the ! parts through ”as is.”

    • Really interesting background on Gloria, Leza. I swear…are all high powered democrats crooks or do they just marry them? Have we heard of any ethical, honest democrats in the last few years? If so, do name one. I can’t think of any.

      William C. Allred was convicted in 1987 on charges of conspiring to defraud the government by selling counterfeit aircraft parts through his company, Donallco. So did he go to prison or just get a slap on the wrist meaning fined only $100,000? Interesting isn’t it that Gloria represented her husband in the lawsuit. How many other helicopters or airplanes were affected by putting bad parts into airplane’s engines? How many planes had landing gear problems because of the counterfeit parts?

      Bankruptcy to protect their assets or the company?

      Gloria became a publicity hound and a total advocate for criminals. Rights of woman and illegals…right. I wonder how close her relationship is with the Soros and Tides Foundation group. I also wonder if she belongs to that Progressive Lawyers group or was associated with the ACLU (a communist front group of lawyers). I also wonder what happened to that housekeeper of Meg Whitman’s that Gloria “represented.” Was she sent back to Mexico for being an illegal alien? Napolitano was supposed to look into that case. Derailing candidates seems to be her forte now. I find Gloria despicable.

        “In an interview Monday, Schweizer said the “most egregious” allegations of insider trading concerned Bachus. At the height of the 2008 financial panic, Bachus participated in private briefings by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson warning that the financial system was about to collapse.

        The next day, “60 Minutes” reported Sunday, Bachus bought a stock fund designed to rise in value when the market sank.

        Studies led by Georgia State University Professor Alan Ziobrowski found that stock portfolios of senators beat the market by 12 percent annually, while those of House members by about 6 percent, returns he called abnormal.

        “There is no law that says a congressman can’t go into the cloakroom, hear some information that is about to have an important impact on a company and then, before it becomes public, go right to his stockbroker and trade,” Ziobrowski said. “It is a tremendous temptation.” [How can Martha Stewart be guilty but there’s no law to catch these crooks?]

        The “60 Minutes” segment suggested Pelosi had a conflict of interest because she and her investor husband, Paul Pelosi, bought stock in Visa, the credit card company based in San Francisco, in March 2008 while a bill that would limit the fees credit card companies could charge merchants was pending in the House.

        The Pelosis bought Visa stock three times in 2008: 5,000 shares at $44 each in an initial public offering March 18; 10,000 shares after the IPO at $64 on March 25; and 5,000 shares at $86 on June 4.

        The credit card fees bill, by then-House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., passed his committee on Oct. 3, 2008, but did not reach the full House. Pelosi was speaker at the time and controlled which legislation came to the floor.”

    • That’s good. Play the Obama game–get dirt from your enemies’ divorces. 🙂
