An Open Letter to Herman Cain


by Neil Turner

Herman Cain was born in 1945 and was the chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. He is also a radio show host.

(Apr. 10, 2011) — Hey, Mr. Herman Cain. So now you’re an Article II Constitutionalist? Perhaps you would like to expand on some of the comments you made in your interview with

Below are some excerpts from a report at WorldNetDaily on that Shark-Tank interview, together with a few comments and questions of my own – questions that are on the minds of at least 275,000,000 Americans (91%, according to polls).

Here are some extracts, with my comments and questions in italics:

Cain continued, “It’s just not an issue that I have studied enough to have a view on one way or another. I’ve been on the radio for five years fulltime. That wasn’t an issue, quite frankly, that I spent a lot of time studying. And I respect people who believe he should prove his citizenship.”

Hey, Mr. Cain!  How can any of us respect you when you don’t respect the 275 million Americans who think that this is an issue worth studying – for the last 3 of your 5 years fulltime on the radio?

“If I were president and someone were challenging me on that, I’d produce my birth certificate. End of discussion (-NOT! The biggest question on the minds of 275,000,000 Americans, and you say ‘End of discussion’?),…

“I, frankly, have not looked at all the facts.” (If you haven’t looked at the facts by now, Mr. head-in-the-sand, then why should we look at you for leadership of this Constitutional Republic – whose so-far unamended founding documents require that only a natural born Citizen shall be eligible to the Office of President and Commander in Chief?  And where were you when LTC Terry Lakin was sent to Leavenworth for just demanding that the facts – that  you haven’t been bothered to look at – were presented to show that Obama could issue anything other than unlawful orders?)

Perhaps you will now be willing to step up to the plate and start telling us what you are prepared to do about resolving the Treason of a usurper in our White House, instead of just telling us that you will show us your Birth Certificate!

And perhaps you will be willing to show us that you are not like the pusillanimous prevaricators who surround us – such as Rep. Darrell Issa and Glenn Beck and John Boehner and U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts – who all know that Obama is completely ineligible for the Office, but are afraid of the repercussions of exposing him. Let me assure you, the repercussions will become even greater with each day that the truth is covered up by the likes of you and ‘W’ and the Congress and SCOTUS – and the Enemedia.

Respectfully, albeit disdainfully,

Neil B. Turner

    The 2010 census is what counts now.

    Regardless of his birthplace, I continue to wonder if Obama is a Muslim. Usually the simplest explanation that fits the facts and/or behavior is the truth…

      You can be assured that he is a muslim, but until we get our public servants (i.e. Congress) to declare Islam to be the political movement that it is – calling for the overthrow of our Constitutional Republic form of government, then being a muslim does not disqualify him. (It does with me and many other thinking Americans, however).

      Having left the ‘faith’ of Islam in his 20’s (so he says) and becoming a – gasp – Christian (so he says) would make him an apostate of Islam, calling for his DEATH! We’re all waiting for them to do that, but they have done nothing but the opposite – claim him as one of theirs.

      It’s called Takiyya – lying about anything, to further the cause of Islam.

    I’m not for cutting Cain a break. Obama’s eligibility has been an issue for years. anyone interested in politics has the correct answer by now. People do not keep ‘favorable’ information covered up. People do try to keep ‘unfavorable’ information covered up.
    Why would Cain say he doesn’t know, hasn’t studied the case enough to know? why? because he is afraid the loud mouths will label him a —horrors—a ‘birther’. There is absolutely no doubt that Barky is not eligible to be the president of the USA. He is not and never can or will be a ‘natural born citizen’ of the US. and that is an absolute requirement in the constitution.
    So, if Cain has not had either the time or inclination to form an opinion on the eligibility of barky to be president then he obviously is ‘much too busy’ to be the president himself. Wonder if he has had the time to determine if he, himself is eligible.

    Please calm down. You are going to have a heart attack. goodness gracious.

    I have never criticized Trump. I have supported him 100%. I send him good notes every day. I have signed up to work for him for President. I always support him on the blogs. He is the best person out there.

    However, Cain fails badly as a candidate.

    1 He does not support us and the Constitution on the Obama issue. He flufs it off.

    2. He was a member of the Federal Reserve. They are the biggest crooks bringing down the country. It is even more important to get rid of the Fed Reserve then get rid of Obama.

    3. He wants to turn over decisions to the military on military issues. That falls right into the NWO desire and the warnings of Eisenhower to watch out for the Military Industrial complex. Exactly where we are stuck today.

    It looks like Cain is a puppet of the NWO. He is simply another Trojan Horse sent to destroy us.

    If you do not watch the movie THE SECRET OF OZ. then I can guarantee America will be soon dead.

    The Federal Reserve was founded in 1913 and the 99 year contract is due very soon. If we do not riot to stop renewal of the Fed Reserve then we are DEAD. The Fed Reserve has this country locked in a mathermatical trap of Interest Rates gone wild. We will never pay off the National Debt because it is mathematically IMPOSSIBLE. That is because the Debt is always more than the total money in existance. The Federal Reserve screwed this country back in 1913 and we are still locked in that death vise. We must get out from the INTEREST. Watch the movie. It won many awards.

    Remember Cain was a head of a regional office of the Federal Reserve. As such he is guaranteed to be the ENEMY of WE THE PEOPLE.

    herman cain does a radio show with neil boortz . i refuse to believe that he has not known the facts and details for several years. he is another phony wimp and coward that has allowed our constitution to be trampled on. also the phony neil boortz needs to get this letter also because he has stated on the air many times that only the obama policies are important and the eligibility issue is nonsense.

    Isn’t this a lie…..I found it in the latest article out of MSNBC media whore…..near the end…I thought Mikki got her long form from Hawaii…according to this NO ONE can…UMMMMM…

    “But Wisch, the spokesman for the attorney general’s office, said state law does not in fact permit the release of “vital records,” including an original “record of live birth” — even to the individual whose birth it records.

    “It’s a Department of Health record and it can’t be released to anybody,” he said. Nor do state laws have any provision that authorizes such records to be photocopied, Wisch said. If Obama wanted to personally visit the state health department, he would be permitted to inspect his birth record, Wisch said.

    But if he or anybody else wanted a copy of their birth records, they would be told to fill out the appropriate state form and receive back the same computer generated “certification of live birth” form that everybody else gets — which is exactly what Obama did four years ago.”

      ‘Isn’t this a lie…..I found it in the latest article out of MSNBC media whore…..near the end…I thought Mikki got her long form from Hawaii…according to this NO ONE can…UMMMMM…


      Can ‘Miki’ (I’m not sure who she is) PUBLISH a recently Certified Long Form?

      This will be a real “nail in the coffin” of the usurper, because it will PROVE all those people in Hawaii are simply providing “cover” for “it”.
      Mrs. Rondeau replies: Recently-released long-form birth certificate from Hawaii:

    2. kittycat77   Sunday, April 10, 2011 at 7:25 PM

      No, it’s not a lie. People still can get their long-form from Hawaii. Ladysforest has it on tape. Someone over at FR got theirs too.

    3. johnny says   Sunday, April 10, 2011 at 9:54 PM

      to mrs. smith / miki booth says that this is a lie and she can prove it. give her a call . you may already know that she is from hawaii. send her an e-mail.
      Mrs. Rondeau replies: Anyone wishing to reach Miki Booth who does not have her email address can send me an email at editor@thepostemail.

    I love your letter Neil….great job! IMO any candidate who plans to run for PREZ will have to prove they want to out the FRAUD and are on the same page as we the people concerning the “natural born” citizen clause of the Constitution! It has already started….the media whores are asking everyone who even shows a remote interest in running against the LIAR-IN-CHIEF about the Trump-et and his belief that Barry is a FRAUD…..I plan to stock up on lots of popcorn as the show is just beginning and isn’t it wonderful to see them all fumbling over themselves! LOL:)

    What Mr. Trump has done has been fantastic and very bold. People are excited about it, they are wary about it, and above all they want to help and not see him fall into any “traps” that the clever liberal press will set that could in any way damage Mr. Trumps credibility on this or any other issue. Only time will tell, but this is the largest move forward that has occurred.
    As for Mr. Cain, I unfortunately view his comments as being no better than Bachmans lame comments so he will have to do alot better. He is running for President-there is no excuse for not being up on the first and most important issue that anyone must grasp-are you eligible and if you are, is your opponent?

    Donald Trump voluntarily stepped up to champion this issue, yet every time he opens his mouth about it publicly, a group of “birthers” open theirs to criticize him. He’s been criticized for what he’s said and he’s been criticized for what he hasn’t said. He’s been criticized by “birthers” for not being knowledgeable enough on the issue after saying something in error. He’s been criticized by “birthers” for not saying enough, not packing more details, into each interview. He’s been criticized by “birthers” for not speaking up sooner. (I’m guilty of this one. I posted in a comment here criticism of Trump’s having only recently speaking up even though he’s been aware of the issue for four years.) He’s been criticized for not bringing up Col Lakin. He’s been criticized for saying “certificate of live birth” when he should have said “certification of live birth,” or the other way around (I haven’t been able to keep this one straight, either).

    More than all of their/our other criticisms combined, Trump’s been criticized by “birthers” for not talking about natural born citizenship as per Article II. This omission brought not only criticisms from “birthers,” but also what are surely false accusations from “birthers” that he’s an Obot operative. And he’s been blamed in advance by prophetic “birthers” for ensuring Barky wins in the end due to Trump’s saying/not saying and/or doing/not doing and/or saying it/not saying it and/or doing it/not doing it soon enough or saying/doing it this way or with this or that person, etc.

    So, please, give Herman Cain a break. Cain, like Trump, is a businessman, not a politician, so it’s quite possible that he’s got his head in the business(s) he runs, not in the sand. He wasn’t dismissive of the issue nor was he critical or insulting of “birthers.” He didn’t speak on the topic like an expert, saying things factual or false. He simply said he’s not studied up on the issue. Let’s not put Cain in the same “damned if he does say, damned if he doesn’t say” catch-22 that’s been attached to Trump.

    PS: According to the 2000 US Census data, the number of US citizens is a little over 281,000,000. No way is this issue on the minds of almost 100% of Americans or that almost every American thinks this is an issue worth studying. If that were only true…

    1. Neil Turner   Sunday, April 10, 2011 at 11:56 PM


      This is 2010, and the population is now ~310 million +/- 10 million (voting) illegal aliens. My calculator tells me that 91% of 310 is 282 million – give or take 5 or 10 million illegals.

      I will stick to my figure of 275 million until proven to be false.

      And if you feel so strongly about Mr. Cain, then please ask him to step up to the plate, read his copy of the Constitution, and then explain why we should support someone who doesn’t care about those critical parts of the Consitution meant to insure our national security.

      I rest my case- for now.
