Thirty years ago today, on an early Sunday morning, as our Marines slept soundly in their cots at Beirut International Airport, an Iranian terrorist smashed a truck filled with explosives into their barracks. According to witnesses, the blast was so enormous, it actually lifted the four-story building into the air before it came crashing down, killing 220 Marines. It was the single largest Marine loss since Iwo Jima and also killed 18 sailors, three soldiers and six civilians. At nearly the same moment, a second suicide bomber blew up a nine-story building on the other side of the airport, ending the lives of 58 French paratroopers.
Because there were those in Washington who didn’t want the US to appear “warlike,” the Marines were unable to defend themselves. The guards posted outside the barracks that Sunday morning were not allowed to carry live rounds in their chambers.
Sadly, most Americans don’t even remember this day. But our enemies do. And more importantly, our response.
Everyone seems perplexed at the difficulties being encountered with healthcare.gov, especially after almost four years to implement. Here is the simple explanation: liberal progressives cannot govern, they can only heckle. They’re like the kids who never got picked to play and foolishly enough, we’ve turned our country over to them. Please tell me one country where progressive socialism has been successful? Republicans fail when they’re the party of numbers geeks who make things sound too complex. This Republic needs sound decision-making, proven policy solutions, and good ol’ American leadership. I’ve seen young Buck Sergeants provide more leadership capability than what’s coming out of Washington DC. C’mon, man.
Why is everyone surprised http://t.co/YS3zd20QmK doesn't work after 4 yrs 2 implement? Where has progressive socialism ever been successful?
The unemployment rate for Americans between the ages of 16-24 is at 15% but instead of providing any solutions to that problem, today President Obama took to the Rose Garden to lecture America about the failures of the Obamacare website. I certainly wish the President would have explained to the American people why there are waivers, exemptions, and delays for his cronies and elected officials, but not for individual Americans.
Americans want to get back to work, not be forced to accept part-time hours or see their insurance premiums skyrocket. Americans did not want Obamacare.

A fierce advocate of conservative values, strong education, and public service, Allen West is the third of four generations of military servicemen in his family. His parents instilled in him a very basic principle, love of God and Country.
Having served in several combat zones – including Operation Desert Storm and in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was battalion commander for the Army’s 4th Infantry Division, and in Afghanistan, where he trained Afghan officers to take on the responsibility of securing their own country, West has proven his unparalleled ability to lead under difficult situations. During his 22 years of service in the U.S. Army, he was distinguished by numerous commendations and honors for valor, achieving the rank of Lt. Colonel.
West’s upbringing, education, and distinguished military service inspired him to become a staunch advocate of national security, armed services, education, and veteran issues, and accordingly, to seek public office. In 2010, he became the first black Republican from Florida to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives since Reconstruction.
Fittingly, Congressman West brought to the floors of the Capitol his steadfast passion, his firebrand leadership skills, and his unwavering principles. He will bring the same inspirational qualities to your audience.
It’s time to play ‘Liberal Progressive Hypocrisy’ and I think we have a great example for today. Consider these descriptive adjectives used by liberal progressives, including the President describing their political enemies: taking hostages, holding a gun to the head of the American people, tea baggers, extremists, jihadists, suicide bombs strapped to their chests, confederates, spousal abusers, just to name a few. Now how long do you think it will take liberal progressives at outlets such as Mother Jones, Huffington Post, Daily Kos, and Think Progress to go apoplectic about this statement, “In advocating for greater debt, President Obama and his liberal progressive acolytes are abusing America’s children and grandchildren by stealing, like common thieves, that which is most precious: their hopes for a secure financial future.” Just wait, here it comes…actually, they’re just mad because I’m telling the truth. They are indeed the party of the jackass.
How long til lib media goes crazy over this statement: by growing debt, O admin abusing r children by stealing their hopes 4 a secure future
