7 Reasons Why Herman Cain Will Never Be President: Part 2

Leave a comment


What is Reason Number Two?

He is targeting Muslims; actively pursuing an agenda that will permit bans on mosques to be set up anywhere in America.

Why Is This Good Thing?

… It’s not …

This radical appeal to the TEA party extremists is a gamble, in an attempt to win the early primaries and gain a better chance of ensnaring the Republican nomination. In the end he is discriminating against all fringe religions.

Why is This Bad Thing?

Banning mosques is the equivalent to setting the Constitution on fire.

Herman Cain pretends to act in the defense of the average American. The fallacious reasoning behind his controversial policy a prevention of Muslims passing Shariah laws. He paints it as a hostile takeover of an alien religion; in reality the core values of Islam are essentially the same as Christianity. Islam influenced laws would only empower local governments.

His religious assaults are cloaked in civilian security; he makes it clear that he is not advocating for banning Islam outright. Mosques may only be eliminated when the majority of the populace does not want them.

For me, this translates to: The primary religion of any area can criminalize secondary ones.

I am a Congregationalist, my town is dominated by Catholics. If such a law, like what Herman Cain has proposed, would be passed I would be in the crosshairs.  Chances are, so would you.  There is no difference between Congregationalists, Jews, Wickens, or Muslims under such a law.  It would be easy to fall victim to theocratic takeover. The basis for the separation of church and state is this very reason; to prevent alienation of minorities.

By supporting theocracy Herman Cain is repealing over two hundred years of law and Article 6 of the Constitution, the promise of protection against religious tyranny.

Part 1: Cain’s “fair tax” is highway robbery.

Herman Cain

Herman Cain; contender for the 2012 Republican Presidential Nomination

What is Reason Number One?

Cain’s proposed “Fair Tax” federal taxation system.

What is Fair Tax?

It is a simple plan.

First, abolish all current federal taxes.  Second, impose a blanket national sales tax at a fixed percentage rate.  Everyone pays the same, regardless of class.  In addition everyone only pays on goods they want to buy.

“Prebates” would buy everyone essential goods so those in poverty will be gifted a decent standard of living.  The Internal Revenue Service will no longer need to exist, and would be removed.   The tax code will no longer be abused because it will be too simple.

Good idea, right?

Why is this an Un-Fair Tax?

The proposed national taxation rate is 23%.

Healthcare is taxed.  Mortgages are taxed.  Food and water are taxed.  Paychecks are not taxed; you will get every cent that you earn.  The federal’s lion share will be taken when ANY goods are bought, ANYWHERE.  Herman Cain outlines this himself, under the cloak of propaganda.

For the bottom ninety percent of the population this is a drastic tax increase.  For example, those in the bottom quintile will see their taxes increase by 460 percent.  Prices of goods will rise by 23% percent, counteracting pay raises, because business will need to keep profitable.  People do not win back a piece of their paycheck, they just lose government reimbursement.

Cain claims that his “prebates” will reimburse Americans so they can buy what they need, placing them at the poverty line.  Therefore, EVERYONE who does not currently pay above 23% will be driven down to the poverty line. That includes you.

Herman Cain and his “Fair Tax” are will enslave Americans, one overpriced purchase at a time.  Americans will just stop spending money, creating widespread deflation and winning Cain a recession.

Part 2: Cain allegedly supports silencing minority religions.

Democrats and Republicans Playing Chicken With the American Economy: How Polarized Bipartisanship In Congress Will Decimate Critical Concerns (Like Issuing Social Security Checks and Staving Off A Double Dip Recession)

FDR on Social Security

Social Security: The Primary Financial Safety Net For Retirees

American seniors will be the first casualties of the debt limit; followed sequentially by Wall Street, the domestic economy, and finally the international economy.  President Obama and Senator Henry Reid’s ultimatum to the stubborn Republicans is that unless the public debt ceiling is raised the country will be forced to halt transfer of social security checks.  Both sides have agreed to reduce the increasing debt, however the specific amount is debated, fluctuating in the trillions.  The time for procrastination is running out.  If the August 2, 2011 deadline is not met the American dollar will become worthless as credit rating agencies, like Moody’s, will no longer support the Federal Reserve.  Not to fear monger, but this a potentially catastrophic financial disaster that stems from several men being unable to agree on a set of numbers.

What is the Democrats Positions?

The Democrats have united around Obama and the Democrats Congress Leaders.  Their unified polices have forwarded relatively generous offers to the Republicans.  Talks have been breaking down at this point, as they are repeatedly snubbed.  Their offers have been denied, there fair deals do not meet the requisites of the Republicans.  They are collectively determined to stay strong and stay the course; their economics work and will sustain the country and they know that their generous deals that they have submitted are feasible.  They just have to get the Republicans to agree.

What is the Republicans Position?

Despite the necessity for tax hikes Republicans uniformly oppose any new taxes.  This is where coordination break down, various factions of the GOP are each concocting their increasing implausible schemes to propose on the Senate floor.  They cannot create a coalition policy that might be taken seriously.

The crisis has become a ammo for the campaigns of the Republican candidates.  Romney pleads for cutting and capping of federal spending. Bachmann has accused Obama of holding the government hostage to continue the government’s spending spree.  Just like the senators, there specifics disagree while their cause does not.

This will result in their demands being painfully denied.

What is the Probable Resolution?

The Republicans  will cave at the last second, giving away a deal that is much less favorable towards them than what they originally rejected.  Their “non new revenue” rhetoric has shown negatively in the public’s eye.  Polls heavily favor the Democrats, because they have appear reasonable and open to debate while the republicans have been demanding ridiculous cuts that will do more harm than good.  Without public backing or good economics their situation is unsustainable and they will have to cave.

In the, unthinkable, event that Republican leaders carry out this game of chicken till it finality,  the result will be their own self-destruction.  There will be a the initiation of the second dip in a double dip recession on August 2, 2011.  The investors on Wall Street will panic as their traditional stable government mishandled the largest debt in the world and endangers national security.  Social Security checks will stop coming, granny will start starving.  Millions of Section 8 tenants will be tossed out in the streets until the government checks come.  Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, with their millions of mortgages, shut down.   Protests will be held, riots will form.  We will all remember the event with a few days of anarchy until the Republican leadership can recover what little sense they have left.  Unless, of course, their million dollar mansions are burned down with them in it.

What is Public Debt and How Has it Accumulated?

Whenever a spending deficit in the government occurs, such as when finances for federal programs exceeds tax revenue, Congress covers the excess with bonds; these bonds are the source of public debt.  It is not in the best interests of governments to issue bonds unless pressed because every bond, even with inflation, pays off more money than it takes to buy one.  The government loses money on every bond.

Why Would the Government Have Any Public Debt?

Historically, only when clear and present threats to national security emerge are bonds issued.  These finance the war effort and allow the nation to persist.  This is fine and encouraged.  Issues arise first when public debt is unnecessarily accumulated and the danger of the national debt ceiling.  The debt ceiling is the amount set by Congress that can be withdrawn; defaulting or going over the national debt is unthinkable.  The consequences would freeze international investing, because nobody will be able to rely on the Federal Reserve.

Why is the Debt Hitting the Debt Ceiling?

Unnecessarily accumulation by fiscally inept leaders.  Our last president, George Bush exuberantly quarterbacked  two of the most long and expensive wars of our time while engaging in risky self promoting publicity stunts, such as the Bush Tax Cuts.  These terrible money hoarding policies dealt stole trillions of dollars from the majority of the American tax payers, funneling it to the richest Americans.  Collectively, these policies led us down the wrong path, creation short-term economic gains at great expense for those who suffer in the 2008 recession.  Financially, this is major defeat, comparable to Battle of Waterloo or the baseball curse that halts the Cubs from ever winning a World Series.  Politically, it bought him his second term.

1667 Protesters Arrested: Malaysian Capital Seized By 20,000 Free Election Protesters of Bersih 2.0, City Became War zone when the “Yellow Shirts” were Met With Violent Riot Cops

Protestors Rally in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Protest Lack of Election Reforms.

There is blood in the gutters and death in the streets of the capital city Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  Protesters demanded free elections and the right of assembly and they were met with the threat of a whipping police baton and cease and desist order; their Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections had been outlawed and their rallied declared an unlawful gathering.  Twenty thousand progressives, many wearing iconic yellow shirts, rallied nonetheless, marching on the central stadium for their rally.  Water cannons, tear gas grenades, thousands of bright red riot cops, and a determined government drove back the righteous revolutionaries and imprisoned a tenth of their number.  A grand revolution, declared, Bersih 2.0, of Oceania has begun, however it will be met with a stiff authoritarian resistance, code-named “Operation Erase Bersih.”

What Exactly are the Protesters Challenging?

Prime Minister Najib Razak is the current head of the United Malays National Organization, a political conglomerate that has ruled the country since its independence from Great Britain.  While his government has attempted economic progress political opponents have condemned his party’s widespread use of fraud, corruption, and racial discrimination to retain its failing authority.  Marginalized races form the base of the coalition, consisting of over 62 separate non government organizations across all ideological spheres.  They all want one thing; fair elections and reforms allowing new political parties into the ruling government of Malaysia.  They were denied, so they choose July 9, 2011, the 54th anniversary of Malaysian Independence for their social revolution, Bersih 2.0.

What Has Happened to the Demonstrators?

The authority’s militaristic action has largely broken up the rallies; now the crest of this current protest has receded they have begun releasing 1600 of the jailed civilians.  Reports from protesters of Bersih2.0 say that at least one man has died because of breathing problems related to the protests.  The police lack the capacity to quickly take on so many new inmates and it is speculated that executives want to mitigate the rioter’s fury.  A short stint in holding cools tempers, a long time behind bars sparks hatred and rage.

What About the Remaining Leaders of the Demonstration?

They are going to remain locked down for the foreseeable future.  Preceding the protest opposition political leaders have been targeted and silenced using aggressive police arrests.  Over one hundred were jailed for everything from distributing T-shirts to holding public rallies.  Human and democratic rights were trampled; many leaders of Bersih 2.0 were deliberately threatened, intimidated and brutally treated. An additional hundred were jailed throughout the city during the protest.  These important public leaders are in stasis; their fate has yet to be decided.  Some who were released were re-arrested.

How is the Government Reaction to The Rally?

Major fissures have emerged between the different political spheres throughout the government cast vastly different opinions on Bersih 2.0.  Many of the extreme conservative elements have denounced the protesters, accusing them of “tarnishing” the country’s image and sowing anarchy.  The police chief of the Kuala Lumpur has objected, sympathizing with to the demonstrators because of the harsh police conduct.  These opinions will be crucial in determining the future maturation of these righteous free election demonstrators.

Bersih 2.0 will, and must, succeed for the continuation of Malaysia; otherwise it is probable civil war will engulf the nation.  That is unthinkable for our interdependent economy and international relations; the global recession of 2011 will only get worse at snowball into more anarchy around the world.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn To Cleared of Rape Allegations: Maid to Be Charged With Perjury

Leave a comment


The would-be president of France, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, is preparing not only to be freed from the shackles of house arrest, but in addition to have all charges of sexual assault against him to be dropped.  The tables are turned; accusations are raining down on 32 black female maid who ignited this controversy.  The drama at hand, as was reported originally, was Strauss-Kahn chased her through the hotel and attempted to prevent her from leaving while sexually assaulting her, where she worked and where he was staying.  It is now revealed the maid’s credibility has been corrupted beyond reform and her allegations are warped.  One of the most hated, and most powerful men, in the world will walk without a trial.  Legally, this is righteous; morally they are both depraved.

Who is Accusing Who (of What)?

The maid’s original accusations made headlines around the world and derailed Strauss-Kahn’s march towards the presidency of France.  The man, who was entrusted with billions and billions of dollars from around the world for what was supposed to be one of the leading foundations for good of humanity, was accused of committing one of the worst offenses conceivable; rape.  Investigators were able to independently prove that sexual intercourse, most likely forceful, did indeed happen between the two media sensations.  After escaping the maid contacted the authorities.

Strauss-Kahn insists that his only crime was being narcissistically conceited; allegedly she willingly agreed to having sex, and was the one who initiated the encounter.  Problems arose with his minimal, or nonexistent, payment, which infuriated the maid.  It would be assumed that she then sought legal action in hopes to hit the financial jackpot and make off with millions.  If this is true the American justice department has severely mishandled the case, along with several media services who are being sued by Strauss-Kahn for liability.  It is becoming increasingly evident that not only is the former head of the IMF telling the truth and the maid has been spreading deceit.

Why is the Maid’s Credibility Dubious?

The first issue with the accuser is her profession.  During the day she works at the hotel Sofitel, during the night she regularly prostitutes herself.  She falls from the pedestal of victim to the harsh reality of being a greedy streetwalker utilizing her position as a maid to pry open new markets.

The second issue was her immigration status.   Her story was that she her family was killed and she was gang banged in her native country of Guinea.  She fled to the United States and received political asylum using this facade.  Now it is unraveling; her entire story is false.  She is not even from Guinea.

The third bombshell for the increasingly scatterbrained prosecution was that the maid lied under oath to warp the investigation.  Several of topics she lied about were:

– Misstating Income to Get Deducted Housing

– Lying on Taxes

– Lying to the Grand Jury about the incident

– Being involved in money laundering and drug dealing

She is about as reliable as a rat in cheese factory.

Are These Allegations Grounds for Dismissal of the Case?

Strauss-Kahn has had his bail drastically reduced and is no longer on house arrest because the prosecutions only witness is completely fallible and the case has become an international catastrophe.  It is likely the maid will at best serve several years in prison, and at worst be deported back to her real native country.  This terrible case, which wrecked and traumatized the chief combatants, pained all close relations, and unsettled the international financial community because of one woman’s drive for money and the media’s willingness to incriminate for sensationalism.  There is but one moral to take from this debacle: everyone who is accused, even devils like Casey Anthony, are innocent until proved guilty.
