Allen West is leading the fight in Congress against Obama, Pelosi and the out-of-touch, radical left

Dear Friends,

As I write this, we’re just $22,025 away from doubling our $100,000 goal for the DNC week. Will you push us over the finish line?

What we saw this week was incredible: a party that pushed us to a $16 trillion debt and pledged to dig us deeper. They promised more of the same policies that have resulted in unemployment over 8 percent for 43 straight months. They proclaimed that we all belong to the government and their delegates booed the inclusion of God and Jerusalem in their platform. Last night we saw an opportunistic 

Last night we saw the failed former Governor of Michigan and MSNBC host literally go berserk on stage.  Joe Biden continued to spew nonsense that required the suspension of disbelief. And President Obama? He desperately tried to ignore the last four years and returned to the same empty promises of four years ago. 

These people and their failed policies are dangerous and Allen is leading the fight in Congress against President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and the out-of-touch, radical left. Stand with him today and help us reach our goal. Donate here: https://www.allenwestforcongress.com/contribute.

Allen West “you have to rank Gov Strickland’s classification of Obama’s patriotism right up there with Benedict Arnold”

On the day our country eclipsed the 16 trillion dollar debt mark,

former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland referred to President Barack Obama as an economic patriot at the DNC convention.

Well, you have to rank Governor Strickland’s classification of President Obama’s patriotism right up there with Benedict Arnold.

As well, Mayor Cory Booker obviously believes that the top 25 percent of wage earning households who pay 87 percent of federal taxes in America are not patriotic.

Silly me. I thought serving a career in the military in several combat zones was patriotic…and being the third of four generations which has done so. Well Mrs. Obama, THAT is the American dream, and why I have always been proud of my country.

Rep Allen West’s Statement on President Obama’s Affront to the American Military

(WASHINGTON)— Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today in response to the lawsuit Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee filed against the Attorney General and Secretary of State of Ohio in reference to giving the military three extra days of early, in-person voting:

“As a retired Army officer, I am appalled at the Obama campaign’s actions to bring a lawsuit against the State of Ohio for the early voting privileges it extends to our men and women serving in uniform. To have the Commander in Chief make our United States servicemen and women the target of a political attack to benefit his reelection actions is reprehensible.  Unfortunately for all Americans, this President has never served in the military, so he has no comprehension of the lives our troops lead.  Military voters deserve special flexibility as they are often subject to restrictions, uncertainties, and risks that often make it more difficult for them to vote.

The voting privilege extended to these members of the armed services who represent the best among us should not be attacked by a President who is more concerned about his reelection than sequestration.

As a 22-year combat veteran, for this President to unleash his campaign cronies against our military is unconscionable.  How dare this President compare the service, sacrifice, and commitment of those who guard our liberties to everyone else?  Barack Obama is undeserving of the title Commander-in-Chief.

I pledge my full support to veterans organizations such as the National Guard Association of the United States, Association of the U.S. Army, Association of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps League, Military Officers Association of America, the Reserve Officers Association, the Association of Uniformed Services,  as well as others who are taking this battle head on. This lawsuit is an affront to our men and women in uniform.”

Florida Congressman Allen West to Keynote Denver GOP Dinner – June 4, 2012

By  for The Colorado Observer

DENVER—Denver may not be known as a Republican hot spot in the state of Colorado, but Denver County Republican Chairman Danny Stroud is determined to put the party back on the map, politically speaking.

For the second year in a row, Stroud—along with the county party leadership—has turned some heads with the selection of the group’s keynote speaker for the annual fundraising dinner.

Last year, businessman and future Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain wowed those in attendance at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science months before he caught fire with a portion of the grassroots conservatives within his party.

This year, the Denver County GOP will play host to Rep. Allen West of Florida, an outspoken conservative, Tea Party favorite and subject of recent rumors of reaching some political observers and Republican heavy-hitters’ short list as a potential VP candidate.

West made waves after his election to Congress for slamming fellow Florida Representative and Democratic National Committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as “vile, unprofessional, and despicable.”  West also gained national notoriety after characterizing liberal Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, a Muslim, as “someone that really does represent the antithesis of the principles upon which this country was established.”

The Lincoln Day dinner will take place Monday, June 4.

“He’s made a name for himself as a spokesman for liberty in this country, and he has a great message,” Stroud said.

Stroud has been a proponent of removing the stigma of Denver as the metro area’s ‘forgotten county’ when it comes to Republican electoral objectives and get-out-the-vote turnout efforts. He simply points to the numbers of registered Republicans in the county that must turn out on Election Day in order for statewide Republican candidates to win.

The New Democratic Party – Wasserman-Shultz Jewish Democrat Fundraising for a group headed by Khurrum Wahid

The “New” Democratic Party! A Jewish Democrat Fundraising for a group headed by Khurrum Wahid, a South Florida attorney. According to the Florida Bar, Wahid “has defended individuals charged with allegedly committing or conspiring to commit acts of terrorism.” He has also spoken at an event sponsored by the American arm of the South Asian Muslim Brotherhood (Jamaat-e-Islami) and the Islamic Circle of North America, an organization that has been connected to the financing of both al-Qaida and Hamas.

(Sunshine State News) — Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz will be the keynote speaker at the annual fundraising banquet of a Muslim group with some controversial connections.

EMERGE USA — which is aligned with the Florida-based Center for Voter Advocacy — is headed by Khurrum Wahid, a South Florida attorney. According to the Florida Bar, Wahid “has defended individuals charged with allegedly committing or conspiring to commit acts of terrorism.”

According to the organization’s mission statement, “EMERGE [Empowering Motivating Educating Resourceful Grassroots Entities] aims to politically empower and train its constituents to be effective community organizers and work in coalitions to advance beneficial policies and legislation that help protect and enforce the rights afforded by the United States Constitution.”

Allen West says DWS is like a gift that keeps on giving but you just want to take it back to the store.

Unbelievable.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — proud liberal and Democrat National Committee chair — is like a gift that keeps on giving — but you just want to take it back to the store.
Last week, Schultz basically blamed the Tea Party for the horrific shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.  Here is what she said.
“We need to … tone things down, particularly in light of the Tucson tragedy … where my very good friend, Gabby Giffords — … [was shot],.”  “The discourse in America. . . has really changed, I’ll tell you. I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it take a very precipitous turn towards edginess and lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party movement. … You had town hall meetings that they tried to take over, and you saw some their conduct at those tea party meetings … when they come and disagree with you, you’re not just wrong, you’re the enemy.”
So there you have it.  We’re “the enemy” and when we speak our mind, people get shot.
Outrageous.
I want to make three things very clear.  First, my family continues to keep Rep. Giffords in our thoughts and prayers.  Second, I condemn all violence — it has zero place in American politics.  And third, the Tuscon shooting had nothing to do with the Tea Party or conservatives.  It was a depraved act carried out by one very sick individual.
I won’t stand by and listen to this type of attack on Americans who want to speak their mind, and you shouldn’t either.  There are two things you can do right now.
1) Call Debbie Wasserman Schulz’s office right now at 202-225-7931 and tell her you’re sick and tired of the ridiculous statements she makes.
****** UPDATE: AFTER CALLING DWS OFFICE we were advised this “the complaint about the AZ shooting has to be to the DNC 202-863-8000”
Schultz’s attacks on us and our movement show the level she is willing to approach in an attempt to discredit us and essentially squelch free speech.
I for one am not intimidated.  I’ll continue to have town hall meetings, and welcome a spirited and civil debate about the future of this nation and the direction we want to go.  The voters — and our democracy — demand nothing less.
And thank you for your ongoing support.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Congressman Allen B. West (R-FL)
Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army, Retired

VIDEO – Congressman Allen West, As Sweet as Chocolate

 

by Javier Manjarres

It’s not often that you’re going to catch your congressman on the beach cleaning up after beachgoers on a weekend, but for Congressman Allen West, it’s just another day at his other “office”. West, an avid beach goer and certified master diver, took to the beach on Saturday with about three dozen supporters and cleaned trash off the sand. West also took a stab at cleaning up an ocean reef that was entangled with fishing line, hooks and other waste.

There was an obvious police presence partly due to a rumor that DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz had enlisted a squadron of liberal attack seagulls to lay siege on West and ‘rain down’ liberal Democrat talking points on Congressman West. Fortunately for West and the other grateful beach goers, the squadron of  birdies was Missing in Action.

After Congressman West made a quick wardrobe change-a-r00, West made his way over to Jan’s Homemade Candies in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, where he met up with a local troop of  Boy Scout to make chocolate that will be sent overseas to U.S. Military personnel.  West said that he was there to support a local business but mostly to lend support to the American troops stationed abroad. When asked about his steady and at pouring chocolate, West replied, “I don’t waste chocolate, I don’t like to waste taxpayer dollars either.”

The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s parents via @directorblue

ALL INFORMATION FOR THIS ARTICLE WAS OBTAINED FROM: @directorblue on Heritage Action Daily

DNC Chief and radical leftist Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has an interesting genealogical tree that (surprise!) hasn’t been covered at all in legacy media. The Broward/Palm Beach News‘s exceptional investigative reporter Bob Norman offers the background on the cases involving Wasserman-Schultz’s mother and step-dad:   …it’s been five years since I busted Wasserman-Rubin and sparked the investigation that is dogging her today. The story was called Cash Cow, and it had to do with gaming of the new town of Southwest Ranches by Wasserman-Rubin; her husband, Rick Rubin; and a slew of other well-heeled manipulators.

…Rick Rubin was paid obscene amounts of money — something like a million dollars — by the town to write county and state “green space” grants that Wasserman-Rubin voted on. Based on one grant approval by Wasserman-Rubin and her colleagues, Rick Rubin received a $15,000 bonus.

A citizen named Ray McKinney got pissed off when he read it and sent it to the Florida Ethics Commission. Incredibly, the commission, one of the most useless governmental agencies ever created, actually hit Wasserman-Rubin with administrative charges and fined her $15,000… It was a small victory for anticorruption forces in Broward County — a largely toothless dog bit Wasserman-Rubin and gave her a little bruise…

…The [scandal] effectively ended Wasserman-Rubin’s career. Not long after we reported the existence of the criminal investigation, she announced in early April that she was abandoning her reelection campaign…
