Destabilizing Libya: Another Obama “Success Story”

Written by Allen West on October 22, 2013

Remember last year when President Obama leaned over to then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and confided in him that he would have more “flexibility” in his second term? I found it absolutely amazing that there were those at the time who considered Obama skilled at foreign policy. Seriously? Many have forgotten Obama’s brilliant vision of “pivoting away from the Middle East.” Now we see that Obama has successfully destabilized another country for the Muslim Brotherhood: Libya. Meanwhile, Egypt is embroiled in a bloody civil, sectarian conflict thanks to Obama emboldening radical Islamists with his Cairo speech, and endorsing a Muslim Brotherhood government under Mohammed Morsi.

It is not just that the Obama shutdown strategy is to inflict pain on American citizens, he is also using it to punish our once best Arab ally, Egypt. It seems that Obama has chosen this moment to shut off aid to Egypt, under the guise of the government slimdown, right as his Muslim Brotherhood buddies are stepping up their terrorist attacks against Egyptians, especially Coptic Christians. Nope, you are not going to hear a peep from Obama about the persecution of the Copts from his “moderate” comrades who represent the granddaddy of radical islamist terrorism. Consider this, Obama denies death gratuity benefits to the families of our fallen Warriors. He cuts off aid to an Egypt that has been thrown into a vicious sectarian, civil war of his doing through support of a Muslim Brotherhood government. What does this tell you about our so-called President? For my liberal progressive socialist friends and supporters at CAIR, truth is a good medicine, and I intend to provide y’all with constant doses. In closing, Chuck Hagel should resign and the head of Fisher House should be appointed Secretary of Defense, since the Obama administration has deferred to him to care for our military families. So much for big government over American benevolence.

This weekend there was good and bad news for our warriors fighting against radical Islamism. Unfortunately four of our brave warriors gave the last full measure of devotion in Afghanistan. Our heartfelt condolences go out to those families who will have an empty chair at the dinner table. Our Special Operators conducted two tactical raid missions in Somalia and Libya. The operation in Libya resulted in capture of a Muslim terrorist with ties to the US Embassy attacks, al-Liby. However, he is being treated as a criminal and supposedly will be transferred to US to get lawyered up for a day in court. He should be heading to GITMO. Regardless of these successful raids, here’s another thing you can add to the list POTUS has shut down: a strategic policy in the Middle East to combat Islamic terrorism.

@AllenWest “Obama’s grand strategy in the Middle East Seems to be how many countries he can destabilize: Libya, Egypt, and now Syria?”


by Allen West via Facebook

Ok, I get it now, President Obama stated we would pivot away from the Middle East as part of his foreign policy strategy, or lack thereof. A few months ago, he gave a speech at the National Defense University to state that the “war on terror” has ended. Obama’s grand strategy in the Middle East Seems to be how many countries he can destabilize: Libya, Egypt, and now Syria? In each case he has removed not so good guys, but has enabled Islamic terrorists and totalitarians to gain power. Therefore, not only has Obama sought to “fundamentally transform” America but also the Middle East. He is becoming the best buddy of the Muslim Brotherhood and jihadists and a nightmare for our true buddy, Israel.

Allen West “There can be no “coexistence” and reconciliation with this band of violent jihadists who seek worldwide Islamic domination under sharia law.”


by Allen West via Facebook

Last year after the 9-11 terror attack in Benghazi, President Obama, vociferously condemned a video of Muhammad during a speech at the UN. Now we hear little to nothing from the President specifically condemning the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and their savage and cowardly attacks against the Coptic Christans – including the murder of a 10-year-old girl leaving Bible study. President Obama demanded Hosni Mubarak step down, yet called and congratulated Mohammed Morsi, a former imprisoned member of the Muslim Brotherhood, on becoming Egypt’s president. The Egyptian military is not fighting against peaceful protestors, they are trying to save their country from the group founded in 1928 that is the ideological foundation of Islamic terrorism.There can be no “coexistence” and reconciliation with this band of violent jihadists who seek worldwide Islamic domination under sharia law. We are watching and wondering, on whose side does the Obama administration really stand?

Allen West “Yes, we do have Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups and individuals infiltrated into this current Obama administration”


by Allen West via Facebook

In 2009 President Obama traveled to Egypt and delivered a very conciliatory speech at the University of Cairo. Not much later events termed the “Arab Spring” compelled President Obama to advocate for the deposing of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Many warned of the rise of the “granddaddy of Islamic terrorism,” the Muslim Brotherhood, in Egypt as the only viable and organized political entity. We were castigated as alarmists and Islamophobes. The Muslim Brotherhood even lied about running a candidate for President. We are now witnessing the result of our blindness. Read the Muslim Brotherhood’s charter. Read the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood Explanatory Memorandum Strategic Goal for North America that was uncovered during an FBI raid in Northern Virginia.  Read Erick Stakelbeck’s book, “The Brotherhood: America’s Next Enemy.” And yes, we do have Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups and individuals infiltrated into this current Obama administration. This is serious.

Our Perplexing Hypocrisy – America celebrates liberty while embracing its enemies

Last week on the Fourth of July, the 237th anniversary of our independence, I sat watching parts two and three of the HBO mini-series “John Adams.” As we know, or I hope you know, part two ended with the reading of Thomas Jefferson’s brilliant words in the Declaration of Independence.

I began to think about what had transpired far from my simple home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., some 24 hours earlier – in Egypt.It was as if the young people of Egypt – and almost 70 percent of that nation is younger than 30 – heard the words of Jefferson and realized that it was upon them to sever political bands and that their government no longer had the consent of the governed. They had come to understand that part of democracy is their ability to petition their government for redress of grievances. These young people, and others, realized they do not have to settle and accept a tyranny greater than what they had previously endured.One-fifth of Egypt, some 20 million people, took to the streets and let the world see and hear them. They clamored for liberty and freedom. They sought a better future for their country. They realized that a strict, Islamist sharia state is not in their best interests.

They actually taught us a lesson – that election by democratic process does not ensure a democracy. One would think we would have learned that lesson after Hamas was “elected” in the Gaza Strip.

A military that with all its might could have enacted a vicious and bloody action in Egypt decided to be the true caretakers of the country. Soldiers acted as guardians of the people, recognizing their true role and responsibility – to serve and protect, to perhaps ensure a brighter future for their own children and maybe restore Egypt to a greatness that it once possessed.

American principles on display in Egypt
Some people are debating the question of coup or revolution? Well, ask the people on the street in Egypt. As for my view, if we use our own American Revolution as a paradigm, the inquiry answers itself.In the twinkling of an eye, we saw a reflection of the principles for which America was founded, a respect and regard for the rights of individual – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.I do not portend to predict the future, but I wish Egyptians well in changing the course of their country and perhaps making it a beacon for the Islamic world. Yes, I do believe we can coexist, but I will not compromise my principles and commitment to freedom to the intolerant.

See, I believe that when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide – and I am certainly not a willing sheep offering my throat to the wolves.

I am proud of the actions taken in Egypt to expel the Muslim Brotherhood from power. I am proud of the young people in Turkey who are taking a stand against autocratic Islamism. I am proud of the young Iranians of the Green Movement who stand for a new way forward, one without the rule of the Rasputin-like clerics, mullahs and ayatollahs.

I am proud of young women like Julie Aftab (see her Profile in Courage story below) and Malala Yousafzai, who have stood against unimaginable hate and assault but evidenced true courage to us.

However, I see a very perplexing hypocrisy. Here in America, which is supposed to be the symbol and beacon of liberty and freedom, we find people embracing what young freedom lovers in the Middle East stand against. We have masked it under the guise of tolerance and multiculturalism.

A pattern of disturbing behavior
I find it utterly disturbing that our government openly consults with organizations that have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Several of them were among the 57 Islamic organizations that in October 2011 sent a letter to then-Obama administration counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan demanding the “purging” of training materials they deemed offensive.I find it disturbing that the Obama administration supports U.N. Resolution 16/18, which, as promoted by the Organization of Islamic Countries, would castigate as blasphemy any “speech” about Islam deemed offensive to radical Islamists.It is truly perplexing that our own National Security Council senior staff would invite radical Islamist cleric Sheik bin Bayyah into the White House for a chat and on the same day, June 13, announce arms support to Islamist rebels in Syria – who 10 days later beheaded a Catholic priest, Father Francois Durad.

On our college campuses we find radical Islamic organizations such as the Muslim Students Association and American professors who viciously attack Jewish students and openly support Palestinian terrorist organizations – and we embrace them. As a matter of fact, the Obama administration has nominated for U.S. ambassador to the U.N. one Samantha Power, who has advocated for a massive American force to impose a pro-Palestinian will against Israel.

How is it that here in America we find instances of radical Islamism and jihadism right under our noses, yet we are recalcitrant to declare it so. The Tsarnaevs, Carlos Bledsoe, Anwar al-Awlaki, Maj. Nidal Hasan and instances of honor killings have infiltrated our shores.

Those of us who stand against Islamic totalitarianism are attacked as being “Islamophobic.” Is it not a perplexing hypocrisy that the United Kingdom would ban two Americans, Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, not even two months after the savage, broad-daylight beheading and hacking to death of a U.K. soldier, Lee Rigby, by declared Nigerian Islamists, jihadists? British Prime Minister David Cameron made every possible excuse to appease those who see appeasement as an aphrodisiac.

An admonition for Americans
I find it perplexing that President Obama did not support the Iranian Green Movement and that he demanded that former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak step down yet openly congratulated the Muslim Brotherhood’s president, Mohammed Morsi. All one need do is to read the Muslim Brotherhood charter to know its global intent to establish sharia dominance.The perplexing hypocrisy is that on the eve of our celebration of American independence, the people of Egypt stood against radical Islamic tyranny while we are embracing it and punishing those who speak against it.Our next generation should take note of the young people of Iran, Turkey and Egypt. Stop being uninformed drones who are only concerned about the next party or season of “American Idol” or who got dance moves.

And our current generation, and indeed across Western civilization, should take heed and find the courage exemplified by the 20 million who said no to radical Islamists, no to the Muslim Brotherhood – just as we said no to King George III and mmonarchical tyranny 237 years ago.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen West “Today the people of Egypt dissolved their bands with a tyrant”


by Allen West via Facebook

237 years ago, our Founding Fathers dissolved the bands associated with a tyrant. Today the people of Egypt dissolved their bands with a tyrant. I pray that as they go forward, they will learn the lessons we learned when creating a constitutional republic, and will shun the radical Islamists who would take Egypt back and not forward. I believe the people of Turkey will see this example and reject their tyrant, Prime Minister Erdogan. The sad thing is, our president is just a bystander to it all…

Allen West “Today, as we wish our Jewish friends a happy Passover, lets also reflect on the freedoms so many have fought to preserve in our own nation”


Dear Friends:

Sundown tonight marks the beginning of Passover and the Seder.

While we all come from different faiths and backgrounds, each of us can learn much from this Jewish holiday commemorating the struggle of the Jewish people over 3,000 years ago, their emancipation from slavery in Egypt, receipt of the Torah at Mt. Sinai, and establishment of their homeland in the Promised Land.

The eight day feast of Passover is a time when Jewish people reflect upon the story of their ancestors and retell it, parent to child, to ensure the love of liberty is passed on from generation to generation.

The Jewish people’s liberation from tyranny is not so different than ours as Americans. Our Founding Fathers fought the British monarchy so that we could enjoy the fruits of our labors and the liberties they believed were inherent to all human beings. But today, too many of us have lost sight of this and our freedoms seem not to be cherished as they should. This is abundantly evident in our political system that seeks to take away the very liberties enshrined in the Constitution-the right to bear arms, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and more.

So today, as we wish our Jewish friends a happy Passover, let us also reflect on the freedoms so many have fought to preserve in our own nation, and ensure the love of liberty is passed on to our future generations.

Allen West Weekly Update “Trouble is brewing on fronts foreign and domestic”


Whazzup With Obama’s Policies? – Trouble is brewing on fronts foreign and domestic

Remember the old Bud Light commercials where the guys shouted “Whazzup?” I don’t know if they helped sell product, but they were doggone comical. I wish Bud Light would bring them back.

Unfortunately when you think about events of this week, that Bud Light commercial comes to mind in a more sobering context.Consider this: President Obama made his first trip to Israel, our best ally in the Middle East, since becoming president in 2009. This comes long after trips to Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. And in Egypt in 2009 at his infamous Cairo speech, Obama stated, “I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world.”Since then, Obama has ensured that the “green revolution” for democracy in Iran went unsupported. And mullahs and clerics there are thrilled that as they march toward nuclear capability, Obama still believes we can reason with them.

Obama also made certain that a new Muslim Brotherhood government rose to power in Egypt – and he gave them nice new toys like tanks, fighter jets and even money. He enabled Libya to fall under the control of radical Islamist groups and militias. Hamas and Hezbollah have become stronger, and Syrian President Bashar al-Asaad has ignored many admonitions to resign.Amid all these developments, Muslims are throwing shoes at Obama’s likeness, the greatest insult in their culture, and Palestinians are burning American flags.Whazzup?I thought we were going to have a new beginning in the Muslim world. After all, we withdrew from Iraq and have vowed to take U.S. troops from Afghanistan.I guess the power of the cult of personality just does not work in that part of the world. Israel finds itself in a far more dangerous neighborhood. And why would our president go visit the leader of a gang, Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Abu Mazen? (Oops, sorry, that is Mahmoud Abbas’ Arabic name.)

Forget domestic tranquility

The news is equally disturbing here in America. This week is the three-year anniversary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare.”The effects of Obamacare on the next generation will be horrific. Those who are 18 to 24 years old will see insurance premiums increase by 45 percent, while the hike is still a hefty 35 percent for those ages 25 to 29. By contrast, rates for the age group 55-59 are expected to decrease 12 percent.Some Americans also will lose healthcare coverage because of new rules that prohibit plans with annual limits. Obamacare is upping the minimum caps to $100,000 this year and $500,000. Commensurate student premiums could go from $500 to $2,000 or more, but then students will be able to stay on parents’ coverage until age 26.Meanwhile, there is a government takeover of student loans that will violate free-market principles, and the massive expansion of Medicaid will strain state budgets further. Sure, the federal government will pay for it, LOL. The end result of this expansion will be less funding for education – or higher state taxes.The fiscal burden we are leaving on the shoulders of future generations is nearing $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years and will explode our national debt.Hey young folks, call up AARP and ask them, “Whazzup?”
