Diane West: Does globalism equal patriotism?

Diane WestBy Diana West

Instead of writing a column opposing the nomination of Samantha Power to become U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, I appeared on a panel in Washington, D.C., to state the case. My co-panelists were some illustrious Americans, including organizer Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, retired Army Lt. Col. Allen West, former U.N. Ambassador Jose Sorzano, retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, and Morton Klein of the Zionist Organization of America.

C-SPAN covered the news conference. So did Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, who wrote: “Their technique was straightforward: They would impugn the patriotism of the Irish-born nominee. … I asked the speakers whether they really believed that she was an enemy of the United States or whether they merely disagreed with her politics.”

Milbank’s technique was clear, too. He would use push-button terms to fry the mental circuits of the reader: How hateful conservatives are for impugning the patriotism of anyone they disagree with!

When Milbank did venture into substance, he misrepresented it. For example, regarding a statement Samantha Power made in 2002 — a horrendous time of Palestinian intifada terrorism against civilians in Israel — Milbank forgot to mention that besides calling for “billions” in U.S, aid for “a new state of Palestine,” Power also called for “a mammoth (U.S.) protection force” to protect Palestinians from Israelis.

Director of NextGeneration.TV Allen West To Receive Freedom Flame Award
Center for Security Policy recognizes individuals who exemplify the ideals of our country

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Thursday, June 6, former Congressman Allen West (R-FL), who is now PJ Media‘s Director of NextGeneration.TV Programming, will accept the Freedom Flame Award from the Center for Security Policy for his work promoting freedom, democracy, economic opportunity and international strength.

“I am honored to receive this distinct recognition and will continue to stand for the ideals of American exceptionalism and the defense of our way of life. Ronald Reagan once described America as the ‘shining city upon a hill,'” said Congressman Allen West, “that requires us to maintain freedom’s flame for this great Constitutional Republic.”

Colonel West is being honored at the 25th Anniversary of the Freedom Flame Award Dinner. The Award acknowledges the past contributions of its recipients while serving as a reminder that the goals for which they have worked so valiantly require the continuing, unflagging efforts of those who follow in their footsteps.

“Allen West’s service to our country – past, present and continuing – is an example of the courageous and visionary leadership so needed in America at the moment and in such short supply.” Said Frank Gaffney, the President and Founder of the Center for Security Policy, “The Center is privileged to recognize that service and to encourage others to emulate his example.”

The Center for Security Policy has pioneered the organization, management and direction of public policy coalitions to promote U.S. national security. The Center’s philosophy of “Peace through Strength” is not a slogan for military might but a belief that America’s national power must be preserved and properly used for it holds a unique global role in maintaining peace and stability.

Sharing A Foxhole with Allen West – by Frank Gaffney

by Frank J. Gaffney Jr. is president of the Center for Security Policy, a columnist for The Washington Times and host of Secure Freedom Radio

Allen West is a man with whom I would gladly share a foxhole. He’s been in many of them over the years – both as a decorated combat veteran and more recently as a Member of Congress from Florida. And when the going gets tough, he is usually the very first of the tough to get going, inspiring and leading others to do the same.

In addition to his natural leadership abilities, Rep. West has an extraordinary grasp of history, its lessons and the importance of not repeating our predecessors’ mistakes. His ability to communicate these insights is similarly exceptional. Last year, in honoring House Armed Services Chairman Howard ‘Buck’ McKeon, we at the Center for Security Policy could find no one better than Allen West to deliver a sterling, improvised benediction. That brief speech—encapsulating two centuries of American military history—is a monument of the power of forthrightness in advocating for peace through strength in the Reagan tradition.
