Dear PJ Media Staff and Consultants:

I have a special, confidential announcement to share with you today.

In order to focus on political interests, Allen West will transition from his full-time role as director of programming for Next Generation.TV to a twice-a-month contributor of written commentary on PJMedia.com, effective October 1, 2013.

I wanted our staff and consultants to have this information first. However, PJ Media is not announcing this publicly for several weeks, so please do not share this news with anyone outside of the company until you see our public announcement.

I thank Allen for all his dedication, hard work and contributions in launching Next Generation.TV and in establishing our Washington, D.C. presence and studio. I speak for all of us when I wish Allen the very best experiences and outcomes in his future endeavors.

My commitment to the Washington, D.C. staff and studio remains as solid as ever. I am proud of this fine studio that so many of you worked diligently to construct, and I am excited to work with our D.C. and Los Angeles contributors and producers on the next generation of NG.TV programming.

Our next phase of programming for Next Generation.TV is our most important so far. We are taking that big step to produce shows for millennials, about millennials and narrated by millennials. This past January when we launched Next Generation.TV, we determined that our initial programming should be geared to the parents and grandparents of millennials since we have been building this older audience for many years. We always had in mind that we’d reach out to the millennials themselves starting in the later part of this year and cover their stories of achievement in business, science, the arts, sports, civic and military service, and leadership.

I am pleased to say that our first wave of this new content will debut on October 17 at Next Generation.TV’s first live and Web event entitled “Next Generation Startups – Young Women Building New Businesses.” This event will feature seven young female entrepreneurs who detail what it took to build their businesses. They all demonstrate that can-do spirit that made, and will keep, America great.

If you have any questions on these announcements, please feel free to contact Sandra Rozanski or Joan Seavey.

Below, you will find a personal message from Allen West about his time at Next Generation.TV and what he has planned for the future.

Sincerely,

Aubrey Chernick

September 16, 2013

 

The full message, attached at the bottom of Chernick’s email, from West to staff:

Dear PJ Media Staff and Consultants:

At Next Generation.TV, PJ Media has given me a powerful platform from which to address the critical issues facing our nation and its future generations. I am very proud of the work I did at Next Generation.TV, especially the news bureau that we have established in Washington, D.C. It is off to a great start delivering new content for our viewers along with mentoring the next generation of millennial journalists. During the nine months that I have spent at PJ Media, I have learned so much about what it takes to produce credible and informative programming, and I appreciate the help and support that all of you have provided me in that effort.

Shortly, I will be giving up my position as director of programming at Next Generation.TV to get back on the front lines to expand the message of constitutional conservatism across our country. I will also be focused on supporting my Allen West Guardian Fund PAC in promoting the next generation of conservative candidates in the 2014 election cycle. And I’m happy to say that I will be contributing written commentary to PJMedia.com twice a month.

It has been my pleasure to work with all of you, and I look forward to continuing to contribute to PJ Media.

Steadfast and loyal,

Allen B. West

Allen West Weekly Newsletter 5/24/13 via Next Generation TV “Moral Courage And Conscience”

AWF2
Moral Courage And Conscience – We see too much of one and not enough of the other

There just never seems to be a dearth of topics for reflection in this newsletter. The themes for this week: moral courage and conscience.

But first, all of us here at PJ Media, PJTV and Next Generation.TV send our heartfelt condolences to the people of Moore, Okla., which was devastated by a tornado early this week. The storm killed at least 24 people, including nine children inside a school, injured dozens more and leveled entire neighborhoods.

My first duty station in the U.S. Army was at Fort Sill just south of Moore, so we feel a special bond with those of you in that community. Angela, Aubrey, Austen, Lin and I send up prayers to our heavenly Father that you will be consoled in this time of heavy emotional stress and despair. We also ask that God welcome your loved ones into His loving arms, where you all shall be with them again one day.

Humbled to be a considered a hero
It has been a busy travel week for this ole paratrooper. It was great to be back in Georgia and address the Republican convention there. To have the distinct honor of standing before the delegates of the Virginia GOP convention in Richmond also will be a moment I will never forget.

After those events, I flew back to Los Angeles to attend the American Freedom Alliance’s Heroes of Conscience awards banquet. It was truly humbling to receive the 2013 “Heroes of Conscience” award from this organization because the alliance seeks to promote the principles and values that strengthen western civilization. Its president, Avi Davis, is an ardent warrior for liberty, freedom and the free market.

Sadly, Davis told the audience that the group’s tax-exempt status has been revoked. The tornado that hit Moore, Okla., demonstrates nature’s power to destroy lives. But the news about AFA demonstrates that the man-caused disaster from government’s misuse of power can be far more destructive to our great constitutional republic.

Virginian Thomas Jefferson, once stated: “When the people fear the government there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.” I do not believe anyone in the Obama administration is worthy to be recognized as a hero of conscience.

A cast of characters without conscience
As I was flying to Los Angeles on Jet Blue Monday morning, I watched the movie “Black Hawk Down” on FX. If any modern-day combat movie truly features heroism, that is it. The Rangers and Delta operators who fought the 1993 battle of Mogadishu, Somalia, in the movie exemplified heroism for all of us to see.

But as I watched the movie, I recalled how former President Bill Clinton, through then-Defense Secretary Les Aspin, denied support to our men in combat there. That memory made me reflect upon how the other Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, more recently abandoned Americans engaged in combat with Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.

The words of Gen. William Garrison, the U.S. forces commander in Somalia, symbolized the creed of warriors: “No one gets left behind.” I wonder if Gen. Carter Ham issued the same order the night terrorists attacked the U.S. embassy in Benghazi and killed four Americans but heard a different order from Washington?

Howard Dean called Benghazi a laughable joke.

Conscience.

This week we learned that it was not just reporters at the Associated Press targeted by the Obama administration. Fox News Washington correspondent James Rosen and CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson have, too.

The last time I checked, America had “freedom of the press,” but these intimidation tactics are far from displaying the foundations of our constitutional republic. How much deeper does this go?

Conscience.

This week we also learned what many of us with a military background already knew: Maj. Nidal Hasan has been getting pay since he fired upon soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009. Hasan has received some $278,000 and benefits as he awaits trial for his heinous and treasonous action. He shot 45 of our brave soldiers, killing 13 of them, all the while shouting “Allahu Akbar.”

Of course, our government officially declared his terrorist attack as “workplace violence,” so the victims have been denied proper recognition and benefits. Why? Well, according to the U.S. Army, declaring what Hasan did to be a terrorist attack would unfairly impact his trial. He will be paid until proven guilty.

Conscience.

An emboldened enemy
Let it be known that our lack of national conscience in punishing Hasan, and truly in reacting to domestic Islamic terrorism, has emboldened the enemy.

That was sadly obvious again this week when Islamic jihadists attacked and beheaded a British soldier in broad daylight. Even more despicable, disgusting and savage, one of the barbarians with blood-soaked hands made a video describing the attack and promising more of them.

I pray the British have learned a lesson from us here in America and will not call this attack workplace violence, especially because these bastards also were shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they brutally killed the soldier. Have we lost our sense of moral courage and conscience, not just in America but also across Western civilization?

The next generation must have men and women of conscience to ensure that we pass on the blessings of liberty, freedom and democracy – our American birthright. Part of our DNA, the American genome, is threatened.

We need men like the two brave Americans who lost their lives this week, FBI special agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw. They were part of the hostage rescue team in the Critical Incident Response Group and lost their lives during a fast-rope training exercise from a helicopter onto a ship when they plunged into the Atlantic Ocean amid rough weather and ocean conditions.

Lorek is survived by his wife and two daughters, and Shaw is survived by his wife, daughter and son. America will persevere as long as we continue to raise such men and women of conscience, not cowardice.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West

Allen West, Michelle Fields and John Phillips discuss Barack & Bibi, The Carl Combover & Single Motherhood

NGTV7

On today’s Next Gen TV, Allen and Michelle reflect back on their week at CPAC and find out what John was up to by his lonesome in Los Angeles. On the CPAC front, our hosts take a look at Rush Limbaugh’s open letter to the next generation, and quibble with Rushbo’s premise that they need to do something important for anyone to pay attention to them.

Plus, is it possible to make a plausible argument that fast food, plastic bags and cigarettes do more damage than single motherhood? An ad campaign targeted at single mothers in New York City sparks a fierce debate. Find out where the Next Gen team stands on it.

And Paul Ryan and Speaker Boehner say there’s a looming debt crisis. But were you aware that there’s a serious barbershop deficit in the Senate? Well there is. To learn about these topics, and more, tune in.

LTC Allen West Joins the AM 870 Crew to Discuss Obama and the SOTU

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE DISCUSSION: Allen West on AM 870 The Answer

While here in Southern California we were watching the aftermath of the standoff with suspected cop killer Chris Dorner, President Obama was giving the yearly “State of the Union” Address.

The Morning Answer crew delved in to the topic this morning and invited former Congressman Allen West to join in with his observations.

“One thing that got me was when he talked about the affordable care act,” said West.  “It’s helping to slow the growth of health care costs.  Well one of the things – the medical device tax is going to cost about 43,000 jobs and we have eight new taxes that hit all Americans in January because of the Affordable Care Act.”

Co-host Heidi Harris agreed with Col. West’s take on the speech, especially in regards to the Affordable Care Act.

“I guess the thing that I find the most offensive is he gets up there and makes these sweeping statements about how great things are and how his healthcare plan is saving us money.  It’s a complete lie!” remarked Heidi.   “ It’s not even a question of your opinion, it’s a complete lie.  And he just makes these statements and expects people to slobber over him and agree with him.”

Click on the player above to hear Heidi Harris, Brian Whitman, Ben Shapiro and Col. West discuss more of the State of the Union speech — including 57,000 new job killing regulations and energy security.

Heidi, Brian and Ben can be heard every weekday morning on AM870 The Answer in Los Angeles or online at http://www.am870theanswer.com
