Former Rep. Allen West calls Atty General Holder a bigger threat than al-Qaeda

Former Rep. Allen West calls Atty General Holder a bigger threat than al-Qaeda

Katie LaPotin

Allen West Former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) believes that Attorney General Eric Holder is a more dangerous threat to the United States than the terrorist organization al-Qaeda.

West, who lost his bid for re-election in November and is now a Fox News contributor and the Director of Programming for Next Generation TV, made the claim in a fundraising email for his political action committee, the Allen West Guardian Fund.

After posting a side-by-side picture of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda, and Holder, West asked the email’s recipients “Which of these emails scares you the most?” The answer, as he then pointed out, was Holder.

“…I’ll tell you flat out — Eric Holder is a bigger threat to our Republic for the very reasons Cicero contemplated over 2,000 years ago,” West wrote in the email. “Al-Qaeda is a very serious and persistent threat, but I trust the U.S. military to protect us from future attacks. I cannot say the same about President Obama and his Justice Department.”

While West’s remarks are among the most extreme made about Holder in recent weeks, he is not alone in wanting Holder replaced in light of the Internal Revenue Service and Associated Press scandals. A recent Rasmussen study found that 47 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of the attorney general, and that 42 percent believe he should resign from office.

He’s right, because it’s Holder who has let “the Taliban into the building.”

All of our Muslim attackers have been given a green light by Holder and our honest, humble American citizens are under attack from Holder as if they were crossing a street with an AQ bomb planted every 2 feet.

Oy. He does know how to grab attention. I believe that Holder and Obama are terrible, but I can’t imagine them strapping on vests and blowing up something.

They don’t need to, they have minions.
A simple suggestion is enough to get
the job done.

I think it was yesterday Allen West said he was running for something in 2016. Presidency unlikely, but I was relieved to hear that he was giving thought to a future in politics.

He’s right.

Oh how I miss Allen West. Heard him on Hannity’s radio show Monday. He said he remains called to public service and if the opportunity exists, he’ll take it.

They do not have to "strap on vests and blow up something" to be a danger to the Republic.

They are implementing and injecting instituional criminal behavior and supression of freedom directly into the fundamental institution that are supposed to protect them. But Obama and Holder are doing it from within...and tragically, with the full knowledge and support of the Demorcratic PArty, the Main Stream Media, and a far too large segment of our people.

And THAT is precisely why they are a greater threat. They are destroying the Rpeublic right in front of our eyes and accomplishing more harm than all of the combined armies of all of our enemies have ever been able to do.

Abraham Lincoln said it best:

All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

Forget it. He can't get elected as President. But, as Cruz's running mate...

West should run for Senate in 2016.....and primary out Rubio

West actually would do better in a statewide election than a congressional election. He would be unbeatable in all FL areas outside of South FL and the liberal univ towns. Heck he should run for governor ....he would beat Crist

It’s true. You just have to. The first time I ever got to see Allen was on a video in which an American born, raised Christian converted to Islam got up at the local church gathering and began admonishing Allen for what he claimed was the general anti-Muslim attitude from people like Allen.

The match-up was like someone mute trying to debate the nine Supreme Court Justices. It was absolutely magnificent the manner in which he destroyed his adversary with his incredible eloquence, logic and perspective. I became n Allen West sycophant that very moment and I display a picture of him on my home page.

On the other hand, they're both quite capable of asking somebody else to strap on a vest and blow up a church...or something.

He’s right in that Holder’s affronts on the average American can do more harm.

Cicero had Holder and 0bama pegged 2100 years ago:

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.

A murderer is less to fear.

The traitor is the plague."

Well, Eric Holder’s law firm was a defender of terrorists before he became the AG. So yes I agree, Terrorists having him defending them while holding the top law position in the country no doubt makes him more dangerous than them.

Agreed. He was my A-1 choice, (for VP along side Sarah in 2016),.....until he voted ‘aye’ for the nazi Germany style NDAA crap. (The OK of rounding up of American citizens off of our streets/homes by our own Military of those whom were deemed ‘terrorists’ by the Feds), indefinite detention of American citizens no trial, no judge, no due process....indefinite. NO true Conservative could support that NDAA. West has to walk that ‘aye’ vote back. I hope to heck he can.

The Islamic “revert” waved a Koran at Lt Col West & demanded he point to passages about jihad against “infidels”.

West was cutting him down to gnat’s knees when some woman walked in front of the “revert” & shook her head like “give it up!”

To the earlier post: OK, you’re right, the Pres. candidate is the statesman, the running mate is the lightning rod & lender of ideological certitude. Lt Col West would be superb in that capacity but I also think he’d make a great commander in chief.

The climate of pro-muzzie PC would instantly end. There’s precedent: the Iranian mullahs fell all over themselves to free the hostages once Reagan’s finger appeared over the release button.

I don’t see it as an “either/or”.

But he’s right. With a principled, honest and loyal AG, AQ would be much less of a threat.

Eric Holders Law firm are the mob lawyers for Al Qaeda.

A large percentage of the Lawyers from Holder’s Law firm that brought to Justice with him and who all now hold high and influential positions at the Justice Department were previously the”pro bono” defense lawyers for Al Qaeda prisoners at Gitmo.

Holder is at the very least an Al-Qaeda sympathizer as are many in his law firm as well as many in this Administration and it may go much deeper than that and his affiliation may at some point be exposed to reveal that it crosses the line to treason.

Why couldn’t West win?

Cruz is not a natural born citizen so he is not eligible for either positoin. Sad, but true.

Rats will attack him for saying this but he’s 1000% right.

Al Queda’s attacks on us are sporadic.

Holder and his boss are screwing us 24 hours a day.
