This morning political analyst Cokie Roberts asserted that Texas, North Carolina, and others who support Voter ID are “evil.” Ms. Roberts is obviously employing the ol’ Alinsky tactic of demonizing your opposition. However, to show how completely stupid her comment is, I bring to her attention the fact that picture ID was required for entry to last year’s DNC convention in Charlotte. Evil, Ma’am? The progressive socialist design to fundamentally transform our Constitutional Republic means control of the electoral system in order to guarantee a permanent national majority and one party rule. Next time Ms. Roberts takes a flight and must present her picture ID at TSA security checkpoint, will she call them evil? And, oh by the way Ma’am, black voter participation rates surpassed whites in the last two presidential cycles.

Allen West “The trail of deceit in the Benghazi incident leads back to the White House”

benghazi

by Allen West via Facebook and Twitter

House Oversight Committee on Benghazi hearing today, and yes, it does make a difference. The difference is, have certain individuals become so focused on winning political offices that they will lie, deceive, and mislead the American people? Are we so willing to sacrifice the lives of four Americans just so we can have a president we like and set up a presidential run for someone we feel is entitled? Losing an Ambassador cannot be the new normal. Abandoning two former US Navy SEALS engaged in mortal combat is reprehensible. Warning to the MSM, if you maintain your normal political bias in this case you will never be forgiven. Furthermore, you will have surrendered your journalistic integrity, assuming it ever existed. President Richard M. Nixon resigned over breaking and entering. The trail of deceit in the Benghazi incident leads back to the White House. Video, what damn video? President Obama, I recommend you search your soul for honesty because no silver-tongued teleprompter speech is acceptable. Salvage your honor, what little there is, or face the eventual wrath of the American people: yes, impeachment.

 

 

Emails surface of egregious gerrymandering of Florida’s Congressional Districts| Wasserman-Shultz

The proverbial political cat is out of the bag for the Democratic Party, as emails obtained by our friends over at the Washington Free Beacon expose egregious gerrymandering of Florida’s congressional districts between Congresswoman Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee, Democratic consultants, and the Florida Democratic Party during the 2012 redistricting process.

The Shark Tank broke the story that Congressman Allen West was going to be “screwed” during redistricting, because of a deal the Republican controlled Florida Legislature had struck with Democrats. While Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin pounced on the redistricting “fix” that was taking place against Allen West, the GOP establishment moved quickly to cover its own hind, as several high-ranking legislators directly pointed the finger at two legislators as being the responsible parties of the controversy, former Senate President Mike Haridopolos and current Senate President Don Gaetz.(Rush Limbaugh discussed Shark Tank story of Allen West)

The legislators in question told the Shark Tank that Haridopolos personally asked to let the state Senate redistrict West’s congressional district. Again, desperate politicians looking to save their careers will say anything to stay out of hot water, perhaps even lie about Haridopolos’ direct involvement.

Allen West and Tamon Pearson Discuss “Is the GOP the Party of Graying Old People?” @mrpearson247

TamonP

In 2011, Tamon Pearson wrote an article comparing the GOP to the Soul Train Awards, in which he argued that the GOP was in danger of becoming as irrelevant to young people as its aging counterparts on the music show. So what does the GOP need to do to remain relevant, and expand its base of appeal? Allen West talks to Tamon about his critiques and the two find common ground.

Dr. Angela West “Democrats and the Culture of “Cool”

coolfor-vista

by Dr. Angela West via Facebook

Last week I attended a very erudite celebration at an exclusive club in Northern Palm Beach. I wager that the majority of the invitees were Republican although the reason for the gala would dictate that it would be bi-partisan. This background is unimportant, however, the discussion that I had with a well known celebrity’s spouse is more so. She asked me about this new obsession with “cool”. Everything is “cool”. Our President is “cool”, Michelle Obama is “very cool”, and all of the people they surround themselves with are “cool”. Then , a former colleague of mine who, along with her husband, developed a rather revolutionary system that made them very, very, very rich asked me why her son wanted to be African American. I said that it is “cool”. But unlikely since he is probably the furthest from being African American that I have ever known. In another life his name would have been Lars or Sven or something very Nordic. I am sure you get the picture.

The reality of “cool” is much deeper than just wanting to be another race, heritage or creed. “Cool” connotes a breeze to the future. It gives the impression of vibrancy, youth, fertility and all of the best feelings of being alive, healthy and the feeling that anything is possible. It is the opposite of tradition, sameness, obligations and boredom. “Cool” has become synonymous with the Democratic party while “tradition” has become synonymous with the Republican party. This did not just begin with the election of Barack Obama, it started with the Kennedy’s.

The choice of an Irish Catholic president was as phenomenal on November 8, 1960 as the election of Obama, an African American, in 2008. And in between we had the Clinton’s. The Clinton’s were by no means conventional, Hillary once remarked “I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was fulfill my profession,” — it sparked a controversy but it was one of the cornerstones in her rise. The reality is that these people the Kennedy’s, the Clinton’s and now the Obama’s epitomized “cool” at their various points in history. Just as the Obama campaign utilized social media and all of the powerful new technology developed and continually developing, the Kennedy campaign marked the first time that the television eclipsed the radio as a means of political communication. It is still the most powerful medium of communication.

So, why bring this up? Why complement the Democrats? Not complementing them just acknowledging that times are changing but no more so than any other time over the past 50 years. In this last election, we as Republicans right down to the wire were convinced of a Romney victory. Everywhere I go, I hear the same cry of being “depressed” and feeling bad. Life moves on, and so must we. We must become “cool” or at least “cooler” than in the past. Move ahead, tomorrow is another day.

We just did not get the votes, and why? Maybe it is just a matter of marketing. And really what is “marketing”? Marketing is the process of communicating the value of a product, it is tailoring the communication to meet the needs of the population that you wish to market to. It means getting the votes necessary to win. It means knowing your market. I have a spreadsheet of the “non-voters” in Florida during the last election, if it were a small number, it still would be unacceptable. The implication is that people would rather NOT vote than vote for any of the choices presented.

The successful marketing of the Democratic party occurred because of their ability to define the Republican party. The first branding campaign started with us being called the party of “NO”. The opposite of yes is “NO”. After that, we became the “opposition”. Deserved or not, we did not counter. Democrats are “Young”, Republicans are “Old”; Democrats promote women (remember the photo ops with Pelosi and all of the women behind her), Republicans wage a “war on women”; Democrats love African Americans, Republicans are “racist”; Democrats are for immigration, Republicans want to “self-deport”; Democrats embrace all lifestyles while Republicans are “homophobic”; Republicans hate the poor, the old and everyone in between.

The message of Democrats = “Cool”; “Forward” and therefore “Good”. Republicans = “Tradition and therefore Uncool”, “Backwards” and therefore “Bad” resonates with even the lowest informational voter.

I have spoken at schools, mentoring groups and even among the young people in my own family. The media bombardment of this message has been powerful. The successful usage of musical stars and the constant image management that goes on within the Democratic party is phenomenal. Last night I attended a function where I tried to get the Republican presenter to even acknowledge that my hand was raised — he looked over my head three times and than brushed off this simple fact, — we have to appeal to the masses without eating or destroying our own. We have to market in a way that appeals, we have to stop bitching about everything being unfair and finally we have to start valuing our own.
When we refer to our party as “stupid”, everyone else will also. When we excoriate women, we invite deservedly so, the scorn of the fairer sex. When we murmur and lament about the changes in our country, we make ourselves depressed. And finally, when we throw overboard our values in order to appease, we lose, because it is perceived that we stand for nothing. And stop grousing about the “good old days”, for the likes of me, the old days were not so good.

Now lets get together, stop putting the same old, same old in charge of our local parties. They really just want a place to hang out with people who are just like them —– read “uncool”. The only demographic that Romney carried was the white male category…… Unless we are going to experience a bumper crop of this group soon, we gotta get movin!!!!!!

TRUE THE VOTE SUES ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FLORIDA FOR FAILURE TO PERMIT INSPECTION OF CD-18 ELECTION RECORDS

HOUSTON, TX. February 4, 2013 – True the Vote announced today that it filed a lawsuit against the St. Lucie County, Florida Supervisor of Elections, to enforce record inspection rights under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) and the Florida Constitution. True the Vote demands that all records pertaining to the recent 18th Congressional Districtelection and subsequent recounts between Rep. Allen West and Patrick Murphy be reviewed in order to perform a comprehensive third-party audit (True the Vote, Inc. v. Gertrude Walker in her official capacity as St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, Civil Action (No.)).

Confused Yet? It Get’s Worse – St Lucie County

WRITTEN BY DAVID DICRESCENZO for The Patriots Press

What the hell happened up in St. Lucie County before and since Election Day?  That is a question that has been fought both in courts of law and in the court of public opinion.  It is also a question that will never be satisfied.

I’m not a lawyer, and I don’t completely understand all of the legal twists and turns; however I was a front row witness to a lot of lies, cheating, and what I believe to be out and out fraud.

Let me be clear; questions about the integrity of the vote, and especially the early vote in St. Lucie County arose from the very beginning.  The Supervisor of Elections, Gertrude Walker, did not respond to those questions; not to the media, and certainly not to the public.

Rallies took place, letters were written, time and energy was spent, and the situation was watched, (mostly thanks to social media) from around the nation and world.  Promises were made and broken by the SOE.

For starters, if there was only one, there were too many cases where votes cast outweighed voter registration; and there were dozens.  In one such case, Precinct 93, it has been widely reported that 900 votes were cast, and there were only 7 people registered.  The percentages of other precincts are equally outrageous, as are the convoluted answers for most of the higher numbers which revolve around the ‘two card’ system used.

Let me try to explain: in St. Lucie County, each voter had two ballot cards to accommodate all of the races, amendments, and questions which were counted as individual votes.  I.E., if there were 100 voters and each was given 2 cards; it would read as up to 200 votes.*  That alone caused a lot of confusion and raised eyebrows.  Mind you,* if any or many didn’t bother to vote on any of the assorted questions and amendments, the number of votes cast could vary commensurately.  For example, if out of the 100 voters 49 didn’t vote on the questions and amendments, the percentage would show as 151% turnout.  Confused yet?  It gets worse.

Allen West Statement “We Should Only Redouble Our Resolve”

For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process. While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.

While there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results and the actions of the St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections rightly raise questions in my mind and for many voters, after much analysis and yesterday’s recount in St. Lucie County, our legal team does not believe there are enough over-counted, undercounted or fraudulent votes to change the outcome of the election.

While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change. Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success. Therefore, we will not contest the certification or challenge the seating of Congressman-Elect Murphy.

Serving the people in the House of Representatives has been among the highest honors of my life, but this seat does not belong to me, or for that matter, to any individual. It belongs to the people. I want to congratulate my opponent, Patrick Murphy, as the new Congressman from 18th Congressional District. I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.

I must thank my wife Angela, and my daughters Aubrey and Austen for their support, patience, understanding and most of all, love. These are three of the toughest women I know. They have sent me off to defend our nation overseas at war and to Capitol Hill to serve our nation in the House of Representatives. They have all handled the challenges of these last few months, and the last many years, with amazing grace. I know they will be my side for whatever is our next chapter.

I must also thank my congressional and campaign staff for their service, and most importantly, I must thank you and our other tremendous supporters who provided their time and money to power our campaign. I am humbled by the dedication and perseverance of our supporters, and their commitment to a free and prosperous America. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for our campaign, but most importantly, what they have done, and will continue to do for our country. None of us should let the outcome discourage us. We should only redouble our resolve.

Above all, I want to thank God for his blessings, and for blessing me with the opportunity to serve.

Only God knows what is in store for each of us. I have dedicated my life to serving this nation, and the results of this election will not change my purpose. Just as I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, just as I did on Capitol Hill, I will continue to fight for our Republic.

Our nation will not overcome our challenges overnight ,and the road ahead for each one of us will not be easy. But this nation would never have become that shining beacon of light if our founders had chosen the easy path 236 years ago. We all must proudly continue their legacy.

God bless you and God bless these United States of America.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West
