Now It’s Cain’s Turn To Lie

October 12, 2011 by  

Now It’s Cain’s Turn To Lie

What is it about the Republican beauty contestants that they can’t tell the truth during debates? We told you after the Florida GOP debate about Texas Governor Rick Perry’s despicable lie. Now, it’s Herman Cain’s turn.

In response to a question from Congressman Ron Paul at the New Hampshire debate about Cain’s past comments that there was no need for an audit of the Federal Reserve, Cain flat out lied when he answered.

Cain said: “I do not object to the Federal Reserve being audited. I simply said if someone wants to initiate that action go right ahead. It doesn’t bother me. So, I have been misrepresented in that regard. I don’t have a problem with the Federal Reserve being audited. It simply is not my top priority.”

But as host of the Neal Boortz radio program on Dec. 29, 2010, Cain said something quite different.

“The Federal Reserve already has so many internal audits it’s ridiculous. I don’t know why people think we’re going to learn this great amount of information by auditing this Federal Reserve.”

Cain went on to say: “People who say we ought to audit the Federal Reserve because we don’t know enough about it, well, here is the advice I’ve given to people who are worried about an audit of the Federal Reserve. Call them up, and ask them. If you can stop by and have one of their PR people or one of their public relations people explain to you how the Federal Reserve operates. I think a lot of the people are calling for the audit of the Federal Reserve because they’ don’t know enough about it. There’s no hidden secrets going on in the Federal Reserve to my knowledge. And I tell people, you know, we’ve got 12 Federal Reserve banks. Find out which district you’re in, call them up and go from there. We don’t need to waste money with another commission or an audit that’s not necessary.”

If Cain really believes that you can “call them up, and ask them” and get anything resembling the truth out of the Federal Reserve, then on top of being a liar he’s far too stupid to be President. But he thinks it’s people asking about his past comments on the Federal Reserve that are stupid, as he pointed out in his new bookThis Is Herman Cain.

He magnified his stupidity by claiming that Alan Greenspan — who manufactured the dotcom bubble of 2001 and the housing bubble of 2008 with his easy-money policies — was the best Fed chairman in the past 40 years.

If you are looking for a liar to occupy the White House, you should be content with the Prevaricator-In-Chief that currently lives there. President Barack Obama’s much better at it than Cain will ever be, because the mainstream media cover for Obama.

And while Cain is too stupid to recognize bad money policy and will further destroy the economy out of ignorance, you can rest assured that Obama isn’t stupid. He knows exactly what to do to destroy the economy and bring down capitalism.

    Bob, I can’t quite get a handle on your reasoning. Cain did say that ‘there have been many INTERNAL audits.’ In no way would an internal audit be the same as the type of audit that concerned Americans want.
    If that point is your main beef with Cain, then I just don’t see what the big deal is. Why not kill the Fed and make the question of audits academic?
    I’d go a little deeper and say that we’ve probably never had a GOOD Fed head. Your comment about Greenspan is right and wrong at the same time. Isn’t he the twit who blessed the idea of derivatives?
    Frankly, I wish Cain had no ties with the Fed. Does anyone know if he completely severed his Fed ties? Has he ever said that he has some reservations about things the Fed has done since 1913? If anyone knows, I’d like to hear about it/them. Until I hear otherwise, I’ll give Cain the benefit of the doubt.
    OK, America. It’s your turn.

    There is something about Cain that I do not trust. It is just a gut feeling, a gut instinct.

    Cain’s ties to the Kansas City Federal Reserve bothered me immensely when I first found out about it a couple months ago. However, consider, many businessmen and women join boards of many organizations like hospital boards, Chambers of Commerce etc. sometimes by invite, to lend PR value to the entity, sometimes to ‘represent’ various interests.

    Sometimes, it’s just to be politically correct. I’m not thinking so, but perhaps he filled a diversity role. I don’t think that would please Herman Cain however.

    Others join boards simply as a resume builder and to put a plaque behind their desk to gain a measure of importance and notoriety.

    I’m inclined to think it’s for one of the above reasons rather than an attempt to become one of the Feds nefarious insiders.

    I’m giving Herm a pass on that one.

    I HATE the Fed. It is the greatest destroyer of America. Central Banks have reeked more havoc on countries all over the world for centuries now. Hiding in plain sight, this is the same process central banks have utilized over and again. Grant credit–then contract credit. They make money both ways. I know all about Freddie and Fannie and Frank/Dodd, derivatives, bundled mortgages etc. but it’s still the Fed’s contraction of credit in the final analysis. All the rest is ‘window dressing’ so we don’t see the ‘man behind the curtain’.

    Now, Cain’s 9-9-9 plan gives me a bit of the heebie-jeebies. What’s to prevent a congress to just jump right in and raise that middle 9; the national sales tax, any time they want… like Christmas Eve if you know what I mean. However, if it included a provision that part and parcel of enactment (or it expired at a date certain, say 2 years) was the immediate beginning of the long and tedious task to literally turn it into a constitutional amendment with that amendment stating that the only way to “raise” the National Sales Tax rate would be similar to the amendment process itself i.e., 3/4 of both houses of Congress and ratification by 2/3 of the several states, hey, I could be on board.

    I heard Herman Cain say on one of the Republican debates that the FED Reserve was okay and no audit was needed.
    Herman Cain worked for the Fed in Kansas was it… I figure ties to the FED are Eternal and maybe they have called their guy to run in 2012 to help them NOT be audited and exposed for the illegal, Non-American Banking cartel that they are… making the dollar decline, inflate, hyper-inflate (to steal America’s wealth), causing recessions and depressions and worthless currency.

    Any candidate has ties to the FED at any level… I would run from them, fast!

  • ron

    Yeah throw him out before he gets started. anyone who does not want to carry gold dust in their pockets is crazy. Thank you Ron Paul.

  • Raymond Agnew

    And Herman McCain already has two Fed Reserve Tools waiting in the wings whom he has bin ordered to apoint as the next Chairman of the Fed by the Private Global Banking Cartel. Wake Up Poeple!!! Ron Paul is our one & only Chance to defeat these Feudalists & Regain Our Freedom !!!

  • Bleh

    Why even bother to Audit the Fed, just END the Fed.
    We already know how they screw over our monetary system by causing Inflation to go up. That is all we need to know to support ending the Fed.

    • Christin


      But with Cain… there will be NO end.

  • john p.

    Herman Cain someone who will be the best person to be President he will make a big difference it won’t be business as always like congressmen & he loves the constitution and the rest of Goverment better follow his lead.

    “I do not object to the Federal Reserve being audited. I simply said if someone wants to initiate that action go right ahead. It doesn’t bother me….”
    You make too much of this. The “lie” is not that he did not object — he blathered on, but he did say in the end the equivalent of, “go right ahead, if you want to.” The “lie” in a sense is in the words “It doesn’t bother me,” because it did annoy him, but the tense of this is present, and speaking of it now, the CONTEXT would be past tense. Who hasn’t gotten annoyed with something and then later said, “it doesn’t really bother me”? This is just rhetoric here, not exactly a federal case you’ve succeeded in making against Cain. You haven’t succeeded; nor am I going to vote for Ron Paul (obviously your man) just because you split hairs with other liberty-minded conservatives. Imperfect yes, but Ron Paul isn’t perfect either. Note there is nothing in this “Personal Liberty” publication that says anything about the abuses smokers face in this society. I know this is a Ron Paul thing because apart from the latest craze of attacking Cain on stupid premises (who’s stupid?), Ron Paul always cops out on the smokers’ rights issue.

  • Val Lynn

    I fail to see the lie. He said the same thing in both quotes that you cite. He sees it as unnecessary, wasteful, etc.
    Using the words “flat out lie” and being unable to convince the reader with your examples, actually makes YOU look like the “flat out liar”
    Obviously your alliance is with another candidate and you hope this inflammatory rhetorical headline will be enough to sway would-be voters and Cain supporters. Sadly this is the exact type of media bias that I was hoping to avoid by when I found this source. My search for REAL non-bias news will continue. It’s not found here.

  • Jerome C.

    Herman Cain is giving us warning signs like Obama did when he attended Rev. Wright’s Church for over 20 years. His character is exposed, see what we got? Cain said that he does not know everything, so he will surround himself with good people. The guy smoking that cigarette was his top choice to run his campaign, he has no idea of foreign affairs.
    The handwriting is on the wall folks!
