    Allen West's Facebook Page ^ | 5/25/20 | Allen West
    (Admin Mod, I know this isn't a proper article - these are my words, not from a source article, but Allen West is beloved around these parts and the only updates on his status after his motorcycle crash are kind-of unstructured posts on his Facebook page.) Allen West left the hospital today, got home, and posted a video thanking everyone for their prayers and well wishes. Since we can't embed video (especially Facebook video), go to this link to watch it: hate to say it, but he looks and sounds pained. Mega-prayers for his recovery. Here are pictures of...

    Allen West, the former Florida congressman and recent candidate to chair the Texas Republican Party, was injured in a motorcycle accident just outside Waco on Saturday, according to numerous posts on social media. “Please pray for Allen West," Dr. Angela Graham-West, his wife, posted on Facebook early Saturday evening. She wrote that he was in the emergency room after his motorcycle was hit outside Waco. “On my way to hospital now.” An update on West’s Facebook page Sunday morning said he was recovering and in stable condition. The crash left him with a concussion, several fractured bones and multiple lacerations....

    Perhaps I am dating myself a tad bit, but I remember the song by Jim Croce called “Big Jim.” The refrain was: You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, You don’t spit in the wind, You don’t pull the mask off the old Long Ranger, And you don’t mess around with Jim… Right now, y’all are thinking, where is ol’ Col. West going with this? Is this another indicator that he had too many landings on his head as an Army paratrooper? No, quite the contrary, it would have behooved House Democrat impeachment managers Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler to have...
  • 'They Are Laughing at Us': Emboldened by Army War College Victory, CAIR Sets Its Sights on Congress

    PJ Media ^ | AUGUST 9, 2019 | RAYMOND IBRAHIM
    On learning that the U.S. Army War College capitulated to the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (“CAIR”) hysterical demands, Lt Col. Allen West wrote: “This is embarrassing, disgusting, appalling, and highly disconcerting. My Army has just emboldened and encouraged the enemy, and they are laughing at us.” Recent events validate his prediction: having cowed the Army War College into obedience, an “emboldened and encouraged” CAIR replicated its demands with Congress. ... after inviting me to lecture on my recent book on the military history between Islam and the West, the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) reneged once CAIR cried “Islamophobia” and...
  • RUSH LIMBAUGH: Rubio Is Not an Establishment Moderate

    TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I have to say one thing, one more thing, one more time. I do not like -- and I've got a Reuters story: "Marco Rubio Emerges Champion of Battered Republican Establishment." Another Reuters story, headline: "Republican Cruz Calls Iowa Win a Victory for Conservative Grassroots." I do not like, speaking for myself, I don't like this idea that Marco Rubio is all of a sudden being labeled as an establishment candidate. I know that Rubio's got the baggage of that Gang of Eight bill and I know that in many people's minds he's got the baggage of wanting...

    Retired Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Allen West (Screenshot) It is the day after Memorial Day and pools are open, sales are over, and those hot dogs at the baseball parks are still awfully expensive. And yes, those who we honored yesterday still lie in their final duty stations. But the question is, what shall we do for the next 364 days until the next Memorial Day? I have shared a simple theme over the past week where I have spoken. These two words come to us from a memorable film depicting the utter heroism and courage...

The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” —House of Commons, 22 October 1945. Above are two respective quotes of Sir Winston Churchill regarding that collectivist economic model of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels we call socialism. Just last week, Fox Business...

    Retired Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Allen West (Screenshot) This past Saturday evening, Angela and I had the pleasure of attending a traditional Jewish wedding for one of my close friends. It was a real fantastic evening, and the venue at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas was exceptional. Heck, even a non-cultured fella like me from Georgia could appreciate the setting. Being a dad to two daughters myself, I know that my friend wanted to make this a memorable evening for his daughter, and it was. We were having a great time. The meal was awesome – a...

    Retired Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Allen West (Screenshot) Dec. 7, 1941 and Sept. 11, 2001 – those two highly recognizable dates have an essential meaning for us as Americans. And those dates have a special meaning in the West Family. I remember my Dad telling me about listening to the radio as a young man of 21 to the reports of the Japanese Imperial Navy attack on the U.S. Pacific Fleet base at Pearl Harbor. He, along with the entire nation, was alarmed, disturbed and angry. The global conflagration that would come to be known as...

    Do you want a surefire recipe to lose the Iraq war? It's easy, really. Just allow the Pentagon to move forward with plans to court martial Lt. Col. Allen B. West. The day that happens is the day U.S. popular support for this war goes south. The day that happens is the day our fighting men realize this war – like Vietnam – is going to be micromanaged by the politicians in Washington who know little or nothing about the split-second judgments that need to be made when you're under fire. The day that happens is the day America loses...

    Donald Trump is not running for president. "After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency," Trump said in a statement Monday. "This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country," the real estate mogul and reality show star continued. Story developing…

    The battle over how to project the future population of the United States has profound political implications. The question of whether America will become a majority-minority nation — and when that might happen — is intensely disputed, of enormous political import and extraordinarily complex. Two articles that appeared in the opinion section of The Times over the past few years made the case that misleading statistical artifacts used by the Census Bureau have increased the fear of a majority-minority America, a fear that played a crucial role in the 2016 election. Both Richard Alba, of CUNY, in “The Myth of...

    Russia continues to thumb its nose at us while Syria further implodes and Iran continues enriching both its coffers and plutonium, courtesy of the Obama administration. Our economy continues to languish in the tank. Meanwhile, new revelations have surfaced confirming Hillary Clinton’s role in gun running in Libya — certainly supplying arms to Islamists and perhaps even those who murdered an American diplomat and three other Americans in Benghazi. And just last night, newly leaked emails confirm, by Hillary’s own admission, that she has both “public” and “private” policy positions — a euphemism meaning it’s her regular practice to LIE...

    From Allan B West website: So Rush offered this perspective and advice for Trump today: I’m just objectively looking at this. Trump is popular for a host of reasons. One of the reasons Trump is popular is because of the positions he has articulated on issues that a significant number of Americans consider to be very important, and he has said things on those issues that this significant number of Americans happen to agree with.I think it would be in his best interests to get back to ’em. It’s just my harmless, futile little opinion here. I’m not presuming to...

    For decades, conservatives have faced accusations of “racism” from liberals who don’t have any actual arguments. Usually it was isolated to talking heads and low information voters, but in the current election, even the Democrat candidate is hounding her opponent with charges of racism. Even Barack Obama never accused John McCain or Mitt Romney of being racist. Last week, Hillary gave a speech on the “alternative right,” a far-right political movement that exists nowhere except on the internet, and tried to link Donald Trump to it. Days later, she released an ad claiming the KKK supports Donald Trump, apparently unaware...

    Why not Lt. Col. Allen West for the next Secretary of Defense? He's old-school, no-nonsense, and if President Donald Trump nominates a black conservative to lead the U.S. armed forces, the Left will go in violence mode, don't you think?

    Let me start by cautioning constitutional conservatives on being giddy, gloating, and excessively celebrating over the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. College football head coach emeritus Lou Holtz once admonished his players that when they end up in the end zone and score a touchdown, act like you have been there before. Yes, a good man survived, withstood, the most vile, vicious, and vitriolic of assaults and character assassination from the progressive, socialist left. Already the left has evidenced that they are not done. They now want to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The question to be asked: why?
