    Congressman Allen West announced his support and co-sponsorship of the Safe Teen and Novice Uniform Protection, or STANDUP Act, at a teen driving event at Jupiter High School on Tuesday, as reported in BPR’s March 14 article “Allen West hits a Porsche while simulating texting and driving.” The act, if passed, would ban teens from driving while texting, restrict driving with other teens and impose other limitations on young drivers. With 50 members of Congress, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and Allstate Insurance Co., among others, signed on, the bill seems to be “in good hands.” But the conservative...

    On Saturday’s “America’s Election HQ” on the Fox News Channel, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin suggested that the eventual GOP nominee take a serious look at Florida Republican Rep. Allen West, a former lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, when picking a running mate. “You know ,who I would like to see considered for the VP slot is Col. Allen West,” Palin said to FNC host Uma Pemmaraju. “In this very tumultuous time across our world, [we need] someone who has served in our military, or at least has intimate knowledge of the way the military works and should work...

    With the Alaska Republican primary on the horizon, Alaska’s most prominent Republican has been making the rounds on Fox News, and this morning Sarah Palin stopped by to tell Republicans to keep their eye on the Democratic ball, not to fear a brokered convention, and not to watch Game Change. But in doing so she made a new revelation in being asked whether she would take the convention stage should it be brokered: she doesn’t expect anyone to support her. Giving a similar evaluation to the field in Alaska as she did last night– that Mitt Romney would probably take...

    Several high-powered names have been bandied about for a possible No. 2 on the GOP presidential ticket. Sarah Palin, the Republicans' last VP nominee, on Saturday threw out a new one - Florida Rep. Allen West. "I would like to see considered for the VP Col. Allen West," she told Fox News. "In this tumultuous time ... he served in the military and has intimate knowledge of the way the military works and should work by having a close family member serve. Someone like that." Palin isn't ruling out another run herself on the ticket, should she be asked. "It...

    Freshman Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Wednesday evening praised the Republican Party for consistently fighting for individual freedom over the last 150 years, and criticized Democrats for pursuing "handouts" to the less fortunate that he said are a modern form of slavery. "Our party firmly believes in the safety net," West said in a late Wednesday floor speech. "We reject the idea of the safety net becoming a hammock. "For this reason, the Republican value of minimizing government dependence is particularly beneficial to the poorest among us," he continued. "Conversely, the Democratic appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is in fact...

    ALLEN WEST UNDER ATTACK! YOUR HELP NEEDED NOW!Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) is a freshman pro-troop conservative Member of Congress. As an African-American former military officer with service in Iraq, he has been under constant attack by the left. We are outraged that one of his political opponents – a little rich kid with inherited wealth and no achievements to his name – had the audacity to call Colonel West “a coward.” They are going all out to defeat West by redistricting him out of office, and the pro-troop community must rise up to help this patriotic American stay in...

    I had such an amazing time at CPAC. I met amazing people, heard great conservative speakers, and spent a great deal of time with our blog team which was a lot of fun in and of itself! I wanted to take some time to list my favorite speakers that I heard at the conference. I decided to leave out all of the GOP candidates as I didn't get to see two of them so I don't want to give a biased answer or make anyone think I'm endorsing someone. If you wanted to go to CPAC or you missed any...

    Democratic congressional candidate Patrick Murphy announced today that he will follow Allen West to the newly proposed District 18 to continue his campaign against him. The move comes after publically calling West a coward for leaving the district to run in a more favorable one. It seems that Murphy will be doing exactly that, with the blessing of popular Democratic leaders. He has yet to apologize to West for his remark.

    American Thinker ^ | 02/06/2012 | Bill Flax
    This February, let's acknowledge several forgotten heroes from black history. We ought to laud those who actually strove for what the laundered historical ledger pronounces as the all-encompassing intent of the civil rights movement: laws affording equal protection regardless of race. Sadly, these stalwarts in the struggle against segregation have been consigned to historical obscurity by the politically correct acclaim for their resentment-fomenting rivals. Popular culture extols Marxists like W.E.B. Du Bois, despite his repeated praise for Stalin and Mao, even while he despised everything America represents. Dubois's heritage is best perpetuated by Jeremiah Wright, Jessie Jackson, and Al Sharpton...

    “People like Mr. [Allen] West, and Governor Brewer and so on, particularly Mr. West, is not only not representative of the African-American community or of the Republican Party, let alone of the American public. So what he says really is of little or no consequence, but it’s unfortunate,” Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) said about Rep. Allen West telling liberal leaders to “get the hell” out of the country.
  • GOP Rep. West: Someone 'playing around with' unemployment numbers (1 month: 2.2% drop for blacks)

    The Hill ^ | 02/03/12 | Daniel Strauss
    Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is suspicious about the newly released January unemployment numbers. In response to news that the overall unemployment rate had dropped to 8.3 percent and the unemployment rate in the black community declined from 15.8 percent to 13.6 percent, West floated the possibility that the numbers might have been cooked. "Can someone tell me how employment in the black community has improved at a rate three times the national average in just a few months?? With numbers like today, urban communities should be well on their way to economic recovery then! There is something suspicious about the...

    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...

    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...
