    Guns and Patriots is a MUST subscription for 2nd Amendment and military afficianados. In this week’s newsletter a former Iraqi Freedom veteran recounts Allen West’s last shot in uniform. Since this isn’t a “web” article, but only the email preface to the OTHER posts for the week on G&P, I’d thought I’d share the blow by blow of badass Allen B. West’s last Iraqi interrogation and gun discharge here.Allen West has only made two severe errors (in my opinion) while representing a Florida Congressional District. He capitulated to John Boehner on the budget ceiling debate and he voted FOR NDAA,...
  • Exclusive: Allen West's upcoming reality show footage

    For many candidates, running for office may feel like a season of “Survivor,” the hit reality TV show where contestants build alliances and try to outwit, outplay and outlast one another for the big prize. But for South Florida’s own conservative firebrand, U.S. Rep. Allen West, the comparison is less academic than, well, reality. The Republican congressman stepped off the campaign trail for a brief moment recently to participate in a “Survivor”-like reality TV show filmed in Palm Beach County.

  • Allen West: 'It's not a farm bill, it's an electronic benefits transfer bill'

    While Congress’ divided Republican leadership has managed to hold off the vote on the five-year farm bill by not bringing it to the House floor before the upcoming break, it is still discussing how best to offer relief to U.S. farmers facing some of the worst droughts in years. Livestock producers stand to get help from a proposed $383 million stand-alone drought relief bill. The five-year farm bill was approved by the House Agriculture Committee, but has not been able to gather enough support by Congress to make it a reality. West said the bill is not really a farm...

    Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is the activist Left’s number one congressional target this election cycle because he poses an existential threat to progressivism, a prominent professional left-wing organizer suggests. West is “a national rising star in the Tea Party,” Becky Bond explained during a panel discussion at the Campaign for America’s Future’s recent Take Back the American Dream confab in Washington, D.C. The famously outspoken retired Army lieutenant colonel with the special talent for getting under Democrats’ skin “is going to start to define” what the Republican Party stands for, said Bond, president of the well-funded Credo SuperPAC. ....

    Congressman Allen West responded with concern to an audience question about a possible Russian naval base in Cuba at Friday’s monthly town hall meeting. “We have a soft underbelly right here in the United States of America, as we look to our south, and we’ve got to pay attention to it,” West said. West pointed out that the only real military presence America has in this hemisphere is the Coast Guard, quoting the U.S. Southern Command in Miami, which oversees the region. “I have big concerns about what’s happening right here in our hemisphere,” West said. “We don’t have anything...

    US Congressman Allen West offered a heartfelt response to recent news that the International Olympics Committee refused to schedule a moment of silence for the eleven Israeli athletes and coaches, as well as one West German police officer who were killed at the Munich Olympics 40 years ago. West recalled watching the Munich Olympics at age eleven, feeling baffled by the horror that interrupted the usual competitive spirit of the prestigious games. He said that he worries if we start to shirk the responsibilities we have to honor the dead on occasions such as this, what will happen 40 years...

    Allen West weighed in on the national controversy over Chick-Fil-A and the fact that many on the left, including Rahm Emanuel are speaking out against the private company. Some are calling for bans on the restaurants due to recent views expressed by the company's president, who opposes gay marriage. City mayors, Hollywood stars, and even the ACLU have weighed in on the issue. West, in true form did not hold back an opinion. "I love some Chick-Fil-A. When I finish here I'm going to Chick-Fil-A," said West, but followed up with more sobering remarks:

    "Allen West Saved My Life" is the emotional message in the third TV ad "Body Armor," released today by the West for Congress campaign. The following quotes come from the campaign press release introducing the ad.(VIDEO following) "There are few greater examples of service and sacrifice than putting your own life at risk to protect that of another. That is what Lieutenant Colonel Allen West did in 2003 when he gave his body armor to Sergeant Robert Delgado shortly before their unit moved into Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom," said Tim Edson, Campaign Manager for Allen West.

    Rev. C.L. Bryant is making waves with his new documentary, Runaway Slave. I had the opportunity to preview the film in Bossier City, Louisiana, and I found the documentary thoroughly compelling. Runaway Slave was conceived by Rev. Bryant and supported by private donations and FreedomWorks. It has been well-received in private screenings so far, often receiving standing ovations, and is poised to open in select theaters across the country next week. While at Regal Cinema 9 in Bossier City, it was the highest grossing film there. Herman Cain caught a great deal of flak for his comment on the campaign...

    Florida blog, The Shark Tank, is reporting a "confidential memorandum" announcing an organized, George Soros attack on Congressman Allen West's re-election in the newly re-organized Florida 18th District. Currently, West represents District 22 and currently, I don't think Florida has finalized all of their redistricting. Soros is spending $5 Million to get rid of an American hero, Colonel and Congressman Allen West. The Shark Tank allegedly has the memorandum and has posted it. The DumpWest SuperPac is probably filing this week, maybe today. The letter is vile and accusatory. The agenda is clear. It describes the newly redrawn District 18...

    On Tuesday’s edition of Fox News’ The Five, the panel debated whether Americans have become too dependent on government assistance today — with liberal co-host Bob Beckel being the lone dissenter on the notion. When the rest of the hosts played a clip from Rep. Allen West (R-FL) reinforcing their point, calling Social Security “modern 21st-century slavery,” Beckel went on a tirade, telling the congressman to “shut up” while calling him a “blowhard.” Republican nominee Mitt Romney needs to make clear the difference between himself and President Barack Obama, emphasizing the question: “Do you see the average American as an...

    That's what Allen West tweeted today in response to the Left’s indignation over and misrepresentation of a comment he made last week concerning economic slavery under President Obama. Of course, this led RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to stick up for West when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer pressed him on the issue: Priebus: "Allen can say what Allen wants to say, but I think what he's really trying to say is that if we become a dependent society, if everyone is reliant on the government -- I mean, listen. Barack Obama is the one that put out this 'Life of Julia' website....

    Congressman Allen West blasted Robert Crowder, his Republican opponent in the upcoming 18th Congressional District race. He also took a few swipes at the Palm Beach Post in a scathing letter that the Post chose to publish on July 3rd. In the letter, West said he would not accept requests by Crowder to debate him. "I refuse to waste the voters’ time by dignifying Crowder’s cynical political maneuvering." West also explained why he refused to interview with the Palm Beach Post editorial board

    While speaking at a campaign rally in Florida, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) mocked politicians who use taxation as a means of regulating behavior (the most recent example being the tax [not a penalty] on Americans who don’t want to participate in “Obamacare”). “What will be next? If you don’t buy a certain type of green car, they will tax you. If you don’t buy a certain type of food, they will tax you,” Rep. West said. “Well, I got a great idea: I believe for personal security, every American should have to go out and buy a Glock 9mm. And...

    Florida Republican Rep. Allen West said liberal Democrats in Congress — including many members of the Congressional Black Caucus — who walked out on the bipartisan votes to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal and civil contempt of Congress did so because Holder is black. “Today the Congressional Black Caucus and other liberal Members of Congress judged the Attorney General by the color of his skin, and not by the content of his character,” West said of their walkout in a Facebook post. “I am disappointed my colleagues would rather engage in a political stunt to distract the American...
