  • Allen West Slams Obama’s Racial Cherry Picking For Political Benefit

    Lt. Col. Allen West was a guest on Fox News Channel’s On The Record with Greta Van Susteren Tuesday night when he slammed President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder for their inconsistency in talking about the injustice of white-on-black crimes while ignoring black-on-white crimes in this country. What I do find very hypocritical is that President Obama nor Eric Holder have said anything about the four black gang members who brutally carjacked and took Captain Kevin Quick, a Virginia reserve police officer, and murdered him. We did not hear them say anything about the nineteen-year-old New Jersey teenager, Brendan...

    I don’t believe political party is as important as principle. Furthermore, the message should be based upon policy inclusiveness and not outreach. Therefore, when conservatives base their message on principle and articulate the pertinent policies, they will have success with the electorate — principle can win over party. And the most recent case of that premise just occurred in Wisconsin, with the primary win of Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. I first met Sheriff Clarke back in 2011 when we held a Conservative Black forum on Capitol Hill. In fact, we wrote about his pro-gun speech at the NRA convention...

    With all the horrible news for Christians in Iraq and elsewhere, there is one bright spot. While we slept, Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim arrived in Italy. As the UK Telegraph reports, the 27-year-old woman, who was spared a death sentence for apostasy in June for refusing to renounce Christianity, landed in Rome where she is to meet Pope Francis before traveling to the U.S. I know she will appreciate all of you who prayed for her and her children and her perseverance through an almost year long-ordeal. Ibrahim and her family were flown to Italy in a government aircraft to...

    If there is one thing I learned in the 2012 election cycle, it was about voter fraud. My conservative warrior associate, Katherine Engelbrecht, and her organization, True the Vote, took up the mantle against the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, Gertrude Walker, who admitted to sending “questionable” results to the Florida Secretary of State. It was somewhat disheartening that the Florida Secretary of State and Attorney General sat back, watched the news reports, and did nothing. With that background, I’d like to share a story written by Gregg Prentice: “Voter Fraud? If they’re not catching the easy stuff, what...

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., March 15, 2014 — “Was it fun for me to lose an election?” asks Colonel Allen West with a crooked grin, “No. Not at all. But if I quit after that loss, I would just be a politician. That’s not who I am.” Colonel West was referring to the 2012 race in Florida’s 18th District, which saw Democrats taking unusual steps to defeat the one-term incumbent. A Miami Herald headline on an AP story in April 2012 noted, “GOP Florida Rep. Allen West’s statements have made him a top Democratic target.” West commented frequently on the...

    We’ve got a little Congressional special election going on over on the west coast of Florida to fill the seat left by the passing of Florida Statesman Bill Young, Chairman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. Republican David Jolly is running against Liberal Democrat Alex Sink. And the liberal media hypocrisy in covering politics is in full flower. Sink makes frankly bigoted comments on the subject of immigration reform, but of course the media doesn’t call her out on it. During a heated debate against Republican candidate David Jolly on Tuesday, Sink said “We have a lot of employers over...

    Recently a left-wing writer for The Atlantic referred to the movie Lone Survivor as propaganda. Obviously, this person really can’t tell fact from fiction, but then again liberal progressives don’t live in the real world of facts. On that same note, the Obama administration is now going to the makers of make-believe for help in promulgating the grand lie and scheme known as Obamacare. As reported by John Nolte on Breitbart.com According to an email invitation sent out by the Writers Guild East and obtained by Breitbart News, members of the Hollywood elite and the Obama Administration will be gathering...

    I saw Lone Survivor today. I wept. I’m a female, I can do that sort of thing in public. Here’s why I wept. In the first few minutes of the film, watching the Navy SEALS train, I turned to my friends and said what a travesty it would be if the physical requirements were ever adjusted downwards to accommodate women – or anyone who could not meet them for that matter, regardless of gender or orientation. These men, these warriors, are elite for a reason. They are capable of doing things very few can. That’s the way we want and...

    ...we’re already 80% there. A couple weeks ago, New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio met with President Obama and 15 other hand-picked, newly-elected mayors to talk about a “progressive movement” sweeping the nation. I sincerely hope he’s wrong, but when you examine The 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto, it appears eight of them are in full flower in the US, meaning we could be 80 percent of the way there already. Here’s the score so far: 1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose. In June of 2011, while...

    This morning as I did my regular run and workout I was thinking about the real issue surrounding Phil Robertson. Too many are focused on the words spoken, but there are some deeper issues to ponder. For me, the prevailing issue is centered around one word: “rights.” Phil Robertson is a born-again Christian and I’m quite sure the executives at A&E knew that from the get go. Phil was paraphrasing the following: 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (New International Version) Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral...

    Former Florida Rep. Allen West had harsh words of criticism for nationally known civil rights activists like Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton, who have remained silent on a video showing black teens beating a white boy, on a school bus: “Ya’ll just make me sick.” The video, which went viral this past week, depicts a July 9 assault on a Pinellas County school bus. Three black teenage boys, all age 15, beat a white boy, while the bus driver — who has since resigned — tries to verbally halt the altercation but does not physically intervene. The beating,...

    St. Lucie’s elections mishaps came to light in the razor-thin U.S. House District 18 contest that prompted a prolonged recount and at least two lawsuits. U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, a Democrat who was sworn in on Thursday, defeated tea party icon Allen West, who filed two lawsuits against Walker seeking a manual recount of nearly 38,000 early votes. Murphy was ultimately declared the winner by a slim margin of less than 1,800 votes.

Because coming out of the military, we didn’t go home until the mission was complete. So maybe that’s what...

Sen Reid has had 815 days to produce a budget- nothing & now he wants to produce a debt plan. Zero credibility Big news, needless to say.

Schultz is perhaps best known, courtesy of Rush Limbaugh, by the handle Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz. She specializes in smarmy demagoguery that faithfully toes the party line, reducing it to its essence. It’s why Obama loves her. On Tuesday Schultz singled out fellow Florida Congressman Allen West for condemnation on the floor of Congress in remarks over the debt/budget showdown. “The gentleman from Florida,” she said, “who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare...

West leads Klein 47-44 in the survey of likely voters conducted Oct. 17-19. Nine percent of respondents are undecided. West, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, lost by 10 points to Klein in 2008, a strong year for Democrats. But with Republicans surging this fall, West is picking up more independents, along with solid tea party support.
