Forty years ago, 72% of House lawmakers and 78% of those in the Senate had served in the armed forces. Veteran representation on Capitol Hill has been steadily declining since the early 1970s, largely a result of the World War II generation steadily leaving public office. But those who have served in the military have a better understanding and a deeper comprehension of issues involving national security, armed services and veteran issues –issues no less important now than they were 40 years ago.

Colonel West was one of only four black Republicans to serve in the United States House of Representatives in nearly a century. In the Senate, there have been only two. As the demographics of the U.S. population shift, it becomes ever more critical to increase representation by not only black, but Hispanic and Asian American leaders as well.

The leadership PAC Colonel West established during the 2012 election cycle with the same mission helped 7 military veteran candidates win their seats in the House of Representatives.

We must ensure conservative leaders are elected who will stand as guardians of our constitutional republic, to restore our nation’s fiscal responsibility and strong national defense, limit the growth of government, unleash the free market and preserve the liberty and sovereignty of its citizens.

Allen West “Here is truly one of the exceptional good guys on Capitol Hill”

Rep.Trey Gowdy rips liberal media over Benghazi

by Allen West on November 10, 2013 for allenbwest.com

Here is truly one of the exceptional good guys on Capitol Hill, my former colleague and friend Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). I would love to see President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice being questioned by Rep. Gowdy, with no 5 minute time limit.

The interesting thing is that the pathetic cowards of the Obama media cannot answer these questions either. The media who does not seek the truth is complicit in the deaths of these four Americans. And if Speaker of the House John Boehner continues to refuse to bring forth a vote on a select committee, well, I and many Americans are waiting for an explanation.

One day Trey Gowdy will be our US Attorney General.

Allen West “It’s time to move away from the progressive tax system – a tenet of Karl Marx’s communist manifesto”

Written by Allen West on October 27, 2013 for allenbwest.com

After the recent debacle on Capitol Hill, instead of real forward progress, we have the same old tired “Beltway two-step” of “let’s have a committee meeting.” To paraphrase Alfonso Bedoya’s words as Mexican bandit leader “Gold Hat” in the 1948 film, “The Treasure of Sierra Madre:” “Meetings? We don’t need no stinkin’ meetings.”

Truly, we don’t need no stinkin’ meetings. The American taxpayer is tired of stinkin’ meetings that end up nowhere. We all know that next year on January 15 and February 7 (which happens to be my birthday), regardless of what President Obama says, the kabuki dance will be replayed. What we need are competent statesmen who will develop sound policies leading to economic growth.

Allen West ” How can the Members of Congress look these men and women in the eye?”

by Allen West via Facebook

On my usual morning run I like to stop and chat with the brave men and women of the US Capitol Hill Police who safeguard the symbols of American liberty and our Members of the legislative branch. However, this morning our normally cheerful chat was disturbing. It seems these men and women who were standing their posts in the rain, as they always do, have been deemed non-essential and will not be getting paid, but they will continue to man their posts. How can the Members of Congress look these men and women in the eye? The Officer this morning asked me one simple thing, “Please Sir, speak up for us.” I can imagine the families of our fallen Warriors who have been denied death gratuity payments from this administration are asking the same. Who are we as a Nation? Where is our sense of character? I implore us all to speak up for the men and women of the US Capitol Hill Police, and all who serve. Call the office of your Members of Congress and ask “where is your sense of character?”

Allen West “This will not happen on my watch, and I don’t need to be on Capitol Hill to defend the Republic”

It seems there is a wholehearted push by liberal progressives for gun control. Let history teach us the results of gun control policies by a central government. It is simple: an armed person is a citizen, an unarmed one is a subject.

Last week Secretary of State Kerry was in Germany and commented, “in America you have a right to be stupid.” My response is, no Mr. Kerry, in America you have a right to bear arms, and it seems you are stupid.

Lastly, once disarmed, want to know what the radical leftist liberal progressive America looks like? Check out Detroit.

This will not happen on my watch, and I don’t need to be on Capitol Hill to defend the Republic.

Congressman Allen West – The Truest of Statesman

183579_t607

When you are looking to describe a statesman you must first understand that  politician and a statesman are not the same thing.   A statesman, is not a tyrant; he is the free leader of a free people and must posses four critical qualities.

  • Strong Principles
  • A Moral Compass
  • A Vision
  • The ability to build a consensus to achieve that vision

I believe in my own mind that two of the greatest statesman to ever live were Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln. Along those ideals and principles I personally believe Congressman Allen West is in every word a true statesman. When I read about the strong principles and moral compass I acquired even more affirmation. Then I felt compelled to describe in greater detail why I firmly believe Allen West’s principles are equal to these two great men. (here are some of the things that I found while researching)

  • A statesman follows his moral compass instead of opinion polls, his ideas are often initially out of step with the public mood. But instead of tailoring to that mood, he speaks to the very best within his countrymen. He understands that while their ideals may be deeply buried, powerful rhetoric can bring them forth and activate them. The strength of his words comes from the fact that he actually believes what he says. And he does not make his countrymen’s hearts soar and burn with empty promises; he keeps his word and does what he says he will do.
  • A statesman has a clear vision of what his country and his people can become. He knows where he wants to take them and what it will take to get there.  A statesman is able to recognize problems ahead and be able to come up with solutions that are good not only for the short-term, but for the long-term as well. The statesman keeps in mind not only the here and now, but the world future generations will inherit.
  • A  true statesman makes his decisions by following his own moral compass. He believes in absolute truths, and his moral compass is rooted in a sense of absolute right and absolute wrong. When something is wrong, he plainly says it is wrong and does everything in his power to fight against it. When something is right, he is willing to overcome any opposition to preserve and spread it. The statesman is ambitious—he must be to obtain a position of power—but there are things he simply will and will not do to get to the top. He is a man of integrity; he speaks the truth. He leads by moral authority and represents all that is best in his countrymen.
  • The statesman builds his platform on a foundation of firm, unchanging, fundamental truths. These are the things he believes at his very core.  Just as in the foundation of a house, storms may wear on the structure, opposition and challenges come about, times change, but the foundation remains. A statesman may change the details of his policies and his methods for achieving those policies, but only as much as those short-term tactics serve the purpose of furthering his principles in the long run.

Congressman Allen West possess these qualities and more, he stands by his beliefs and his love of his country. He wants and desires to keep this nation safeguarded for his children and many generations to come. He stands on principles and commands an audience when he speaks. Those that know him have the highest respect for him, those that do not, despise him for having the fortitude to go against the grain.

Recently when being interviewed by NPR, Congressman West was asked about his plans going forward and while the lame-stream media has issued their spun statements  “West compares himself to Abraham Lincoln” a quick listen to the interview will show that Congressman West simply made a statement that “Hey, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in congress”. He was not comparing himself to anyone but making a statement that a once great president only served one term in congress and went on to bigger and better things. Simply put, West is far from done and America is far from letting him go! – Tanya Grimsley

Congressman Allen West On His Future

6711696111_60039e7310

By CHARLES MAHTESIAN | 12/1/12

Florida Rep. and Tea Party favorite Allen West, who recently lost re-election to Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy, appeared on National Public Radio Friday.  Far from despondent, West spoke of Washington politics and his future role with his characteristic assertive, yet calm, tone.

Politico relates the interview’s significant conclusion:

MARTIN: So what’s next for you?

WEST: Look, you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That’s my goal. I have two daughters, 19 and 16, and I want to make sure that they grow up in a great America that provides them all the opportunities that it provided to their mother and father.

MARTIN: Congressman Allen West is completing his term in Congress. He was kind enough to join us from a House recording studio on Capitol Hill here in Washington, D.C.

WEST: And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.

MARTIN: Duly noted. Congressman West, thank you so much for speaking with us.

Many commenters are interpreting West’s closing remarks as a hint that he may consider running for president some day.  Perhaps, though, he only meant to say that one can still be a pivotal figure, even if they only serve one term in Congress.

Time will tell.

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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: CONGRESSMAN ALLEN WEST STATEMENT ON ELECTION RESULTS

Stuart, FL – Today Congressman Allen West released the following statement ending the race for Florida’s 18th District:

“It’s been very humbling and very honoring,” Rep. Allen West EXCLUSIVE BizPac Review Interview

Exclusive: Allen West reflects on his freshman term

By: Michele Kirk  – Source: BIZPAC Review – Date: September 24, 2012

“An incredible journey,” U.S. Rep. Allen West said of his first two years in Congress. “This is a dream come true for a kid born in the inner-city of Atlanta.”

Sitting in his Washington, D.C., office, surrounded by pictures of his family, military mementos and history-themed books, the outspoken freshman congressman spoke with a sense of awe about the status he’s achieved as Florida’s representative on Capitol Hill.

A frequent Fox News guest, West said he has been most surprised by the regard he’s been afforded on the national stage. Over the next hour, he was reflective of a journey that began just two years ago, when he was first elected to Congress.

“It’s been very humbling and very honoring,” said West, who was scheduled to sit down with Fox commentator Greta Van Susteren after this interview last week with BizPac Review.

When asked whose personality pleasantly surprised him in Washington, he said he has been most impressed with fellow Congressman Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio.

“He and I have really got an incredible relationship – mutual respect – and it started back with the whole fiasco with us going into Libya, the violation of the War Powers Act,” West said. “I am always looking to align myself with those who would stand on principle, and that’s exactly what he did.”
