In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Herman Cain dies at 74 of coronavirus

Very sad.

According to Newsmax:

Herman Cain — the maverick American business czar and Republican presidential candidate who campaigned for a sweeping tax reform plan called 9-9-9 — died Thursday morning after a monthlong battle with the coronavirus. He was 74.

Cain, who recently joined Newsmax TV and was set to launch a weekly show, died in an Atlanta-area hospital where he had been critically ill for several weeks.

He was admitted on July 1, two days after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Ten days before, Cain had attended a rally for President Donald Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

But it is not known for sure where Cain, chair of Black Voices for Trump, was infected. He had been on a whirlwind travel schedule in June, stopping in multiple cities.

He was born Dec. 13, 1945, in Memphis, Tennessee, and grew up poor in Atlanta, Georgia, where his father worked three jobs — as a janitor, barber, and chauffeur — while his mother toiled as a domestic worker.

A stellar student who worked hard, Cain graduated from Morehouse College with a mathematics degree in 1967. A year later, he married Gloria Etchison, whom he met when he was a sophomore at Morehouse and she was a freshman at Morris Brown College.

Cain went on to earn a master’s degree in computer science from Purdue University in 1971, and helped develop fire control ballistics for ships and fighter planes for the U.S. Navy.

Next, he joined The Coca-Cola Company as a systems analyst, and after considerable success, moved to Pillsbury.

After serving as regional vice president of Pillsbury’s Burger King, Cain then took on the biggest challenge of his career as president and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, a national chain teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

In 14 months, he returned Godfather’s to profitability and led his management team to a buyout of the company.

Later, Cain said he could explain his success at Godfather’s Pizza in one word, “marketing.”

In 2006, Cain was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer but, with aggressive treatment, was able to beat the disease.

In his book, “This Is Herman Cain!” he discussed his life-threatening illness, writing: “It’s been more than six years since then. And guess what? I’m completely cancer-free! Cured! Why was I spared against those odds? God said, ‘Not yet!

  1. Mr. Cain leaves a giant hole in religious conservatism. He was a good man, he worked hard achieving the American Dream, his parents were there for him encouraging greatness.
    I never believed the story about him harassing the girls in his Chicago job.
    I’m sorry I didn’t get to vote for him for president of the USA.
    RIP Herman

  2. So sad to hear this news. I respected Herman Cain above nearly every other voice in the news. His wisdom and good sense shone through in every one of his columns. He scared the Dems in 2008 so badly they ran a Kavanaugh scam on him, and he was out of the Presidential race before he could defend himself. Smart, conservative African Americans terrify the Left, and Herman Cain was all that, and a Christian just to make it worse. Man, will I miss him! My condolences and deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.

  3. Herman Cain, like all of us, not perfect…. but truly a man to be admired. Sad that he will not be here to stand with traditional America as our battle continues.

  4. Herman was at his best at a townhall that Clinton held and Herman spoke against policies that Clinton wanted enacted. Clinton was no slouch, but he wasn’t as prepared as well as Herman was. Ultimately Clinton recognized he got his fanny whipped and tried to move on

    Here’s the link of that clip. Enjoy!

  5. I had the good fortune to meet Mr. Cain in person during his 2012 campaign for president when I served as voluntary event security for his appearance in my city. I’d have voted for him in a heartbeat, and never believed — still don’t — the lies from the left about his alleged workplace abuses. He was an American success story from the git-go, and his passing leaves a great gap in conservative ranks.
