Herman Cain:

    ATLANTA (AP) — Herman Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate, businessman and close ally of President Donald Trump, was guided by his Christian faith in politics, business and his personal life, his pastor said at his funeral Friday. Cain “made his mark on this world” and his life will be celebrated for years to come, the Rev. Kenneth Lamont Alexander of Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta said. “We’re not here because of his political beliefs; we’re not here because of his corporate success,” Alexander said. “All of that is worthy to be mentioned, but we celebrate for another reason: The reason we celebrate today is because of his deep, abiding love for Jesus Christ,” he said. “The most important...

    On July 30th, America lost one of this century’s bravest political figures: Herman Cain. Though he beat stage 4 cancer in 2006 when doctors only gave him a 30% chance of survival, coronavirus proved too much after a month-long hospital stay in the Atlanta-area. Regrettably, media voices have worsened the tragedy by obsessing over his attendance at a late June campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma for President Trump while largely ignoring his remarkable lifetime achievements. Despite the fact nobody knows exactly where he caught COVID-19 considering a recent visit to Arizona and daily life in Georgia, that hasn’t prevented rampant speculation which needlessly tarnishes his image. As his VP of Communications and Chief Foreign Policy Adviser on the 2012 presidential campaign, I got...

    Herman Cain, the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and Republican who served as co-chairman of Black Voices for Trump, died of complications from COVID-19 this week at the age of 74. Journalist Charles Bethea looks back on Cain’s political influence in an article for The New Yorker, arguing that he helped pave the way for Donald Trump’s presidency. Politically, Cain was far-right, and the Tea Party ally ran to the right of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the 2012 GOP presidential primary. Ultimately, Romney won the nomination but lost to incumbent President Barack Obama in the general election. Ironically, Cain was an African-American who embraced the racist birther movement, which claimed that Obama wasn’t really born in the United States....

    The late Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) was a great American, and a courageous leader of the civil rights struggle — which is exactly why it was wrong of him to claim that the Tea Party was racist, and had used the “N-word” against him in 2010. It was late March, and the House of Representatives was about to vote on Obamacare, which Democrats were pushing through on a party-line vote. Tens of thousands of protesters, many affiliated with the Tea Party, gathered at the Capitol. I was there, for part of the protest. It was passionate, but it was also civil. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was jeered when she and fellow Democrats, including Lewis, staged a provocative...
    CNN’s Chris Cuomo trained his fire on President Donald Trump on Thursday, calling him out for holding an in-person campaign rally last month attended by a maskless Herman Cain, who just died of Covid-19. The 74-year-old Cain passed away on Thursday after an extended battle against the virus. He had been entered the hospital on July 1 after being diagnosed with Covid-19.

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo strongly suggested on Thursday night that President Trump was responsible for the death of former GOP presidential candidate and business icon Herman Cain. Cain's death was announced after he was hospitalized earlier this month due to complications from the coronavirus. Critics of the president, however, point to Cain's attendance at the Tulsa, Okla. rally on June 20 as the place the outspoken businessman contracted the deadly disease.

    CNN host Chris Cuomo wished "no peace" to President Trump following the coronavirus-related death of Herman Cain. Cuomo noted on his show Thursday that Cain, who was the co-chairman of Black Voices for Trump, attended the president's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, shortly before he contracted COVID-19. He suggested that Trump was partially responsible for Cain's illness because he encouraged the large event to take place. "[The coronavirus] just took a former presidential candidate, Herman Cain.

    It was, to say the least, an exciting assignment when I first interviewed Herman Cain back in 2004. Covering the retired CEO of Godfathers Pizza, whose rags-to-riches life and unique charisma were right out of the movies, was nothing less than a journalistic feast. Cain (who died Thursday at 74) was then one of the two Black candidates running for the U.S. Senate that the national press was carefully watching. He was seeking the Republican nomination in Georgia. The other was Barack Obama, vying for the Democratic nomination in Illinois. In 1994, he had asked his celebrated question of Bill Clinton at a town hall meeting that was key to the downfall of the costly healthcare plan sculpted by the...

    Black conservative pundit Larry Elder mourns not only the death Black conservative legend Herman Cain, a Newsmax TV host, but also the "snarky" politicization of it.

Elder lamented the "snarky" tweets and comments about Cains rejection of wearing a mask during the global coronavirus pandemic and the widespread, leftist allegations Cain contracted COVID-19 at President Donald Trumps Tulsa, Oklahoma, campaign rally. Last month, Cain also attended Texas premiere of "Uncle Tom," an Elder-produced documentary of...

    Ben Shapiro responded Thursday to what he called the "ugly" reaction by some prominent pundits to Herman Cain’s death from COVID-19. "He was a 74-year-old survivor of Stage 4 colon cancer," the "Ben Shapiro Show" host said, "and people are dunking on Cain on Twitter because, obviously, he attended President Trump's rally in Tulsa less than two weeks before being diagnosed with COVID 19." Cain did not wear a mask at the indoor event on June 20. Eleven days later, Cain was hospitalized after testing positive for the coronavirus.

But his accomplishment with the most lasting impact happened during his days as the number-one lobbyist for the restaurant industry. During the 1990s, as president of the National Restaurant Association—an outfit representing mainly chain restaurants—Cain transformed the NRA “from a sleepy little trade association to earning a spot in Forbes magazine’s 1997 Survey of Washington’s 25...

    Herman Cain was Trump before Trump. I first met Herman Cain in 2011, when he was running for the Republican nomination for president. He was the Donald Trump candidate before Trump: a successful businessman, a Washington outsider, a larger-than-life personality with an extraordinary story. In those days the only people who dared run for president were governors or Washington insiders. So when Herman Cain threw his hat into the ring for president, the Washington establishment couldn’t wait to treat it like a joke. What did he know about government? Politics? Elections? Who does he think he is trying to run for president? Sound familiar?

    Former presidential candidate Herman Cain died this week at the age of 74 due to complications from COVID-19. Shortly after his death was announced on Thursday, leftists and anti-Trumpers immediately jumped at the opportunity to blame Trump for his death, given that Cain attended the president’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma this past June. Though there is no evidence that Herman Cain contracted COVID-19 from Trump’s Tulsa rally – not to mention the fact that the rally led to no spike in cases throughout Tulsa – media outlets and blue checkmarks on Twitter either inferred or outright blamed the president for Cain’s death. “The prominent conservative businessman was hospitalized weeks after he attended President Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on...
