WHY WAS HERMAN CAIN SO SWIFT IN ACCUSING THE PARRY CAMP FOR THE LEAKS…? COULTER’S CONNECTING THE DOTS HERE IS SO CREDIBLE……RSK
Herman Cain has spent his life living and working all over the country — Indiana, Georgia, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, Washington, D.C. — but never in Chicago.
So it’s curious that all the sexual harassment allegations against Cain emanate from Chicago: home of the Daley machine and Obama consigliere David Axelrod.
Suspicions had already fallen on Sheila O’Grady, who is close with David Axelrod and went straight from being former Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley’s chief of staff to president of the Illinois Restaurant Association (IRA), as being the person who dug up Herman Cain’s personnel records from the National Restaurant Association (NRA).
The Daley-controlled IRA works hand-in-glove with the NRA. And strangely enough, Cain’s short, three-year tenure at the NRA is evidently the only period in his decades-long career during which he’s alleged to have been a sexual predator.
After O’Grady’s name surfaced in connection with the miraculous appearance of Cain’s personnel files from the NRA, she issued a Clintonesque denial of any involvement in producing them — by vigorously denying that she knew Cain when he was at the NRA. (Duh.)

The real scandal in the accusations against Herman Cain is the corruption of the law, the media and politics.
Let’s start with the law. Some people may think the fact that the National Restaurant Association reportedly paid $45,000 to settle a claim made by one of its employees against Mr. Cain is incriminating.
Most of us are not going to part with 45 grand without some serious reason. But that is very different from the situation of an organization in the present legal climate.
The figure $45,000 struck a chord with me because, some years ago, my wife — who is an attorney — was fervently congratulated when her client had to pay “only” $45,000 in a jury award when the plaintiff was demanding a million dollars, in a case that was as frivolous a lawsuit as you could find.
“Palestinian Theologian” Trashes “Palestinian Theology”by Malcolm Lowe
For over two decades, parts of the Christian world have been bemused by the writings of self-styled “Palestinian Christian theologians.” Since their brightest lights are Protestant pastors, they are minor figures among the overwhelmingly Orthodox and Catholic faithful of the Holy Land. But they are strangely popular in Liberal Protestant circles abroad and especially beloved of church bureaucrats.
Now one of them, Lutheran Pastor Mitri Raheb of Bethlehem, has trashed all the efforts of “Palestinian theology” to date as an irrelevant rehash of nineteenth century European theology. And what is his new starting point? Basically, nineteenth century race theory.
For decades, Raheb and his Anglican counterpart Naim Ateek have been touring Protestant churches in Europe and North America and conducting seminars in “Palestinian theology.” That is: purported theological underpinning for Palestinian political aims. Students in Protestant universities have been obliged to swallow down their books and regurgitate them in examinations. Those who questioned this new orthodoxy might face serious obstacles to their academic future.
Ateek in Jerusalem and Raheb in Bethlehem opened educational institutions to which theology students were sent from abroad. Recently, Raheb received authorization from the Palestinian Authority to grant BA and MA degrees. So for Raheb to denounce all that purported theologizing was to drop a big bomb.
Raheb was talking on “Contextual Palestinian Theology as It Deals with Realities on the Ground” at the March 2010 “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference in Bethlehem. He began by promising a “new way of thinking” because “we all, even as Palestinians theologians, we were dancing on the rhythm of European theology of the 19th Century, trying to react here, to react there, to change here and there, but the assumptions, the systems of thinking, was [sic] still 19th Century Europe.”
A new report shows that thousands of young women and girls in Germany are victims of forced marriages every year.
Most of the victims come from Muslim families; many have been threatened with violence and even death.
The revelations have shocked the German public and will add to the ongoing debate in Germany over the question of Muslim immigration and the establishment of a parallel Islamic society there. The revelations will intensify an ongoing debate in Germany over Muslim immigration and the role of Islam there.
The 160-page report, entitled, “Forced Marriages in Germany: Numbers and Analysis of Counseling Cases,” was commissioned by the German Federal Ministry of the Family, and made public at a news conference in Berlin on November 9.
The problem of forced marriage is evidently far more widespread than previously believed.
The study — the first and most detailed of its kind in Germany — reveals that in 2008, the most recent year for which statistics are available, 3,443 people sought help at counseling and social services centers across the country because they were being, or already had been, forced into marriage.
The question that forms the basis for my commentary addresses the fundamental aspects of the immigration issue.
The short answer to the question, “Why did the illegal alien run our border” is that there is no definitive way of knowing. In this case, what we don’t know can certainly harm us. An alien who runs our borders is violating our nation’s sovereignty and our nation’s laws- laws that are being ignored by our federal government and those municipalities and states that have “Sanctuary” policies in place.
Being concerned about the reason an alien would seek to enter the United States is not, by the way, limited to illegal aliens who are now present in the United States but is actually one of the very first questions that a U.S. consular officer asks an alien who applies for a visa for the United States and is also one of the first and most important questions that a CBP (Customs and Border Protection) Inspector asks an alien who seeks entry into the United States. It is a question I asked virtually every alien I encountered during the four years I served as an Immigration Inspector at the beginning of my 30 year career with the INS. As you may know, I began my career with the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) in October 1971 as an Immigration Inspector assigned to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

A vaccine that can kill cancer By Karin Kloosterman
Israeli company formulates a drug that ‘trains’ the immune system to seek and destroy malignant cells that have already invaded the body.
As we get older, modern medicine will help more of us live with cancer rather than die from it. That’s the assumption behind a vaccine to treat cancer, being developed by a pharmaceutical company in Israel.
Vaxil BioTherapeutics’ main product, ImMucin, is now in advanced clinical trials at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem.
CEO Julian Levy tells ISRAEL21c that this therapeutic vaccine doesn’t prevent cancer from invading, but activates and enhances the body’s natural immune system to seek and destroy cancer cells already present in the body, such as those lingering after cancer surgery.
Two breaking stories out of Afghanistan:
1) Big firefight in Paktika Province at COP Margah, which this blog has been keeping an eye on for a while. Sixty jihadis killed, all Americans okay.
Two senior Afghan intelligence officials told the BBC the attack was “very close to Pakistan”, adding: “Sixty insurgents carrying so many weapons could have not crossed from Pakistan without the help of Pakistani security forces – it is either that or they turned a blind eye.”
Pakistan says it does all it can to halt insurgent activity.
Karzai’s big pal Pakistan.
