Congressman Allen West “I give you my thoughts in my weekly wrap up”

Dear Patriot,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and all Americans, it is time again for our weekly update.  It is hard to believe that almost nine months have gone by.

I want to begin with the issue of the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state in the United Nations. Because of a short-sighted speech given last year by our own President at the United Nations, we saw an emboldened Mahmoud Abbas submit his request for statehood. A request for the creation of something that even in its name is a misnomer.

As I have often stated, the word Palestine has nothing to do with Arabs. It has everything to do with a region that was conquered by the Romans who suppressed the Jewish rebellion between 68-73 AD and by decree of Emperor Hadrian, who changed the region’s name from Judea to Palestina.

Hadrian and the Romans took the word Palestina from the root word, Phillistia, referring to the original Philistines, who were in fact Greek.
Therefore, the true “Palestinians” are the Jewish people, hence why I believe the first step to a peace process solution in the Middle East is recognition of the modern-day Jewish State of Israel. The second step is a complete repudiation of radical Islamic terrorism and dismantling of terrorist groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Al Aqsa and Al Quds Brigades, Hezbollah, and others which threaten Israel.

If these critical conditions cannot be met, and if Mahmoud Abbas cannot agree to this, then his attempts are nothing more than a charade. The audacity of Abbas to attempt to circumvent the negotiation process, and the applause he received at the United Nations is very concerning to me.

The United States must adamantly oppose and submit its veto vote in the United Nations Security Council and unequivocally assert that we shall not support this measure until the “Palestinian” Authority evidences itself as a credible peace partner.

If the UN continues its support of Abbas without the above measures taking place, then the United States House of Representatives should withdraw the support of the American taxpayer dollars to both the United Nations and the Palestinian Authority. In times of economic hardship, fiscal responsibility means that we are the guardians and stewards of American taxpayer dollars.

I also want to confront the absurdity of Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad having a platform on our soil upon which to spew his vile rhetoric. There must come a time when Ahmadinejad is no longer granted a visa into the United States. How dare he stand in New York City and blame 9-11 on our America!

Lastly, I want to discuss the Continuing Resolution (CR) the House of Representatives passed this week. It is vital that we as Conservative Republicans learn to and demonstrate our ability to govern, something the liberal progressives seem to be  incapable of doing. We passed a measure which would keep our Federal Government functioning while we complete the remaining six appropriations bills.  There are a total of 12 bills and the United States Senate has only taken up one.

Part of the CR, ensures the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is funded in order to alleviate the suffering of Americans from the recent natural disaster which struck our nation. To be fiscally responsible, House Republicans found spending offsets to ensure we pay attention to our deficit issue. That offset came from a Department of Energy government loan program for “green” vehicles.
The Federal Government does not need to inject itself into the automobile industry, or any private sector industry, as it has done with the mortgage industry and now the healthcare industry.

I call upon Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to stop playing the games of political brinksmanship and pass the House legislation. We do not need to repeatedly portray the United States Congress as a dysfunctional body politic. I ask you, Senator Reid, to stop trying to maneuver and manipulate a failing political agenda at the expense of the American people and  “Pass the House Continuing Resolution, now!”

In closing, never forget that leadership is about taking action, it is different from managing. Our America needs principled and pragmatic leaders who have a deep passion for this country, the American people and their advancement and success.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen

Rep. Allen West: “We Need Black Fathers, Not Washington D.C.”

“It’s great that we have President Barack Hussein Obama as the first black, African-American President of the United States of America, but I didn’t have to look at someone beyond my own dad,” West said. “When you look at the black family structure right now, less than 33 percent have mother and father in the home. That’s what we have been talking about here. Once upon a time in the black community you didn’t have to look at people outside your home for role models. We’ve have got to get that re-established. So we don’t have to look up to Washington D.C. You can look at your dads.” (source: Accuracy in Media)

Congressman Allen West: “I don’t want to fight.” with NPR host Michel Martin

Allen West: “I don’t want to fight.”

Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, will speak with NPR’s “Tell Me More” host Michel Martin today. He’ll talk about why he reconsidered his membership in the Congressional Black Caucus, controversies over his own past remarks, and whether he thinks Democrats and Republicans will ever find common ground.

West, on whether Democrats and Republicans can come to an agreement on fiscal matters, said this: “I think he’s [President Obama] trying to pick a fight with House Republicans. I don’t want to fight. I want to make sure we do the right things for our country.”

On why he reconsidered his membership in the CBC after Rep. André Carson, D-Ind., suggested that some members of the Tea Party would “love to see us as second-class citizens.hanging on a tree,” West said this:

“I’ve been called Uncle Tom, I’ve been called sell-out, I’ve been called Oreo and many other variations of different racial epithets, but you’re not going to hear me come out and say something incendiary which will bring up images of lynchings. I think that we have to be a lot more mature in what we’re saying. So, I still cannot condone what André Carson said, but I think that it’s important for me to stay within the Black Caucus because you have to, as I said earlier, bring that varying perspective and different outlook and insights from a conservative aspect.”

The interview airs today. The show doesn’t air in South Florida, but it’s available online here later today.
