  • Rush Limbaugh is Wrong (Florida Redistricting)

    2/2/12 | Representative Scott Plakon
    As a longtime fan and admirer of Rush Limbaugh, I was disappointed to hear his comments regarding the work of the Congressional Redistricting Subcommittee on which I am honored to serve. His suggestions that we “rigged” the maps to force Allen West out of Congress are simply ludicrous. I was there…it didn’t happen…I know. It is especially surprising to see Mr. Limbaugh join with the chorus of left wing groups that are attacking our work. I can only presume that Mr. Limbaugh’s lack of knowledge of our process, laws and constitution would lead him to make such statements and would...
  • Rep. Allen West Declares 'Days Of Conservatives Being Punching Bags - That's Over'

    CNS News ^ | 02/02/2012 | Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr.
    On the Sean Hannity radio show today, Rep. Allen West said that “the days of conservatives being punching bags-that’s over.” “As I shared with you last night and I will continue to say, the days of conservatives being punching bags-that’s over, Rep. West (R-) said. “And we have to stand up-we have to stand up on principle.” “We have to identify this message and this ideology which is counter to the principles and values of this Constitutional republic.” Hannity and West were discussing the recent comments made by the congressman in which he told Democratic leaders to take their message...
  • Pencil-pushing weasel Patrick Murphy calls Allen West a ‘coward’

    Today, Patrick Murphy, the underdog in the Democratic primary for Congressional District 22, called incumbent U.S. Rep. Allen West -- a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, and a combat veteran, mind you -- "a coward." Responding to West’s decision to run in a newly drawn district further north, Murphy posted the following statement on his website: Allen West went from talking tough this weekend and telling progressives to "get the hell out of this country" to abandoning the people who elected him. There is no other way to interpret this: Allen West is a coward. The truth is...

    SharkTank ^ | Jan. 31, 2012 | by Javier Manjarres
    The Shark Tank has learned that Congressman Tom Rooney has announced that he is running for re-election to Congress in one of Florida’s two newly created congressional districts, and that Congressman Allen West will run for re-election in Congressman Rooney’s 16th Congressional District. The speculation will now begin as to which Republican will run in Allen West’s 22nd Congressional District. It is possible that either George LeMieux or Adam Hanser could abandon their Senate candidacies and run in the district, as both are from the area. The possibility exists that other current candidates for Congress in adjoining congressional districts could...

    Allen West has decided to switch to the newly proposed 18th district in Florida for reelection. Here is his statement below: “After much prayer, reflection and discussion with my close friends and family, I am announcing today my decision to seek reelection in Florida’s proposed 18th Congressional district. I have always believed the state of Florida would be best served by having both Congressman Tom Rooney and myself in the House of Representatives working to solve our nation’s most pressing problems. I have never waivered from my vision; to work to create jobs, restrain federal government spending, reduce America’s ever...

    The controversy over Allen West’s proposed boundaries is finally getting national attention, but at what expense? Thanks in part to a recent post by South Florida blogger Javier Manjarres of the Shark Tank, the Florida Legislature and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney are being slammed by the media for abandoning West. Rush Limbaugh even took up the cause on a recent radio show.

    The Shark Tank ^ | January 27, 2012 | Javier Manjarres
    Jacksonville,FL- After last night’s Republican Presidential debate, the candidates’ respective spinmeisters made their cases to the media as to why their guy won the debate. One of Governor Mitt Romney’s spokesmen was Florida Representative Will Weatherford, and during the course of his remarks in the “Spin Room”, he shed a very dim light on the ongoing redistricting process in the Florida Legislature. Over the past several weeks, many Republicans have voiced their disappointment towards the Republican legislature after the release of the preliminary redistricting maps. Much of the ire concerns the proposed boundaries of Congressman Allen West’s 22nd Congressional District...

    Allen West, in discussing what the Republican Party needs to do to get black voters into the Republican party, was asked which presidential candidate has the conservative principles to help turn the tide of high unemployment in the black community, and he was quick to point out that despite those on the left accusing Newt of race-baiting, he believes that Newt is the one who is diagnosing the problem well and is trying to open a dialogue with the black community by offering to speak before the NAACP.

    Human Events ^ | 01/24/2012 | John Hayward
    A few words from God, Reagan, Lincoln, and Jefferson. Rep. Allen West (R-FL) spoke at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Monday, and delivered a remarkably potent speech. He was primarily reading the words of others, but he chose them well, and delivered them with clarity and power. Reagan spoke for the ages when he said, “We cannot survive as a free nation when some men decide that others are not fit to live, and should be abandoned to abortion or infanticide.” I might even shorten that quote to make another point about the current crisis: “We cannot...

    Rep. Allen B. West took to the airwaves Monday to defend former House Speaker Newt Gingrich against charges from a top Democrat that Mr. Gingrich used racist “code words” to fuel his double-digit win over the weekend in the South Carolina Republican primary. Rep. James E. Clyburn of South Carolina, one of the top-ranking Democrats in the House, and black activist Al Sharpton have been sharply critical of Mr. Gingrich’s repeated references to President Obama as “the food-stamp president.” But Mr. West, a tea party conservative who is the first black Republican elected to Congress from Florida since 1873, said...

    Source: Steven Nelson – The Daily Caller Florida Republican Rep. Allen West may be the Republican candidate for vice president in 2012. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said at a Republican Palm Beach County fundraiser that if he won the Republican presidential nomination, he would strongly consider a Floridian as his running mate. “Allen West would certainly be someone you’d look at,” Gingrich told NBC affiliate WPTV. West responded, “We don’t know what the future holds, but I’m always willing to serve my country.” “I have to pray about it and I have to clear it with my...

Allen West to his position, but some of her fans are shocked at a recent proclamation that she will vote for Barack Obama if Mitt Romney becomes the Republican nominee. Kaufman is unwavering in her position and reiterated it on the record with BPR. (Audio file)

    The media, along with the White House and its talking dogs, Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton, have joined the usual ragtag terrorists in the Muslim camp in condemning our troops – employed by our government to kill the Taliban – for allegedly urinating on Taliban bodies. I have a simple question, because I'm confused by Obama's stance: Which is more inhumane, killing someone or urinating on him? I'm not a legal expert, but I'm sure the penalty in Washington, D.C., for killing a person is more severe than just peeing on that person. Whatever the penalty is for urinating on...

After all, his election was the fulfillment of Dr. King’s dream, West said, and “how devastated would Dr. King be to know the Americans who are still fomenting racism at the highest levels are the very people for whom he fought for and died?”
