Allen West ” How can the Members of Congress look these men and women in the eye?”

On my usual morning run I like to stop and chat with the brave men and women of the US Capitol Hill Police who safeguard the symbols of American liberty and our Members of the legislative branch. However, this morning our normally cheerful chat was disturbing. It seems these men and women who were standing their posts in the rain, as they always do, have been deemed non-essential and will not be getting paid, but they will continue to man their posts. How can the Members of Congress look these men and women in the eye? The Officer this morning asked me one simple thing, “Please Sir, speak up for us.” I can imagine the families of our fallen Warriors who have been denied death gratuity payments from this administration are asking the same. Who are we as a Nation? Where is our sense of character? I implore us all to speak up for the men and women of the US Capitol Hill Police, and all who serve. Call the office of your Members of Congress and ask “where is your sense of character?”

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.



Read the Rebuttal to the TC Palm and Carl Hiaasen’s Hit Piece on Allen West

REBUTTAL BY Darlene Fuggetta (Hobe Sound, FL) 

The Original Letter by Carl Hiaasen can be found here: TC Palm

The Congressman faces a daunting task indeed, Mr. Hisaasen, but it is not because of the reasons that you state. The Congressman shows America on a daily basis that he is a man of honor and integrity. He does so by vocalizing what the majority of his supporters believe in; faith, family, God and Country. The Congressman served honorably in the United States Army for 22 years and made a command decision while overseas, giving up his career willingly in the hopes of saving troops lives. To demean this action is dishonorable, not what he did.

 Mr. Hiaasen, this is a mere personal attack on the Congressman’s character. The reason he has raised so much money is simply because the majority around the nation believes in his message and his facts. Desperate liberals do this when they can’t argue with his record or the facts he presents. Allen West speaks truth and he backs it up. The fact that he is politically direct rather than politically correct is to his advantage. What Allen West says is clearly not what liberals want to hear….. the TRUTH.  They must make personal attacks such as this hit piece in order to inflict the seed of hate instead of providing factual arguments. A mere search in Google; and lest we forget the, which the democrat socialist of America are listed. In these sites they are proudly discussing who they are. Allen West did not “pretty” up the communist remark and use the new terminology “progressives” as they liked to be called. They do however provide you a nice list on who they endorse and, big surprise, Obama is once again on that list.

When the Congressman makes the statement, “I am pro-life because I believe all life is precious and worth protecting”, he means it. Planned Parenthood is the number one provider/supporter of abortions and thus neutering and killing those precious children;male or female. I too firmly believe that Allen West is correct, a child while in the womb is a person. To discard or neuter that life out of inconvenience is murder.

Liberals define slavery as a racial issue. Allen West defines it as an ideological and intellectual issue. Slavery is about more than chain’s, it’s about forced or coerced labor and being held to restrictive standards. That is what the government is doing to everyone, regardless of the color of their skin.They “force” people to rely on government programs and then the government can control their actions. It’s not freedom…. it’s government slavery, and the chains are the government programs.

Mr. Hiaasen, with all due respect, I believe that the “fringe gasbag, macho act, paranoia” comment best suits you and the libel and rhetoric you have spun for the benefit of your personal short comings. It would best suit all of us here in District 18 that instead of spinning the typical “liberal” talking points that you show us why Patrick Murphy is your candidate and why endorsing an inexperienced 29 year old over a man with a distinguished career is preferable. Allen West never had to enter the political arena and be subjected to the meanderings and vicious behavior of the democratic machine. I will remind you, running for Congress is a choice, Allen West made that choice and is a clear choice for me and my family because he is in lock step with my beliefs and concerns for America.

Thank You.

HERE IS THE REBUTTAL Edited down for requirements of 300 words or less: TC PALM

Rep. Allen West “In these final days, desperation will continue to grow, we need to fight back”


Despite the millions in false attacks from George Soros, the Murphy family, and national liberals, you’ve stood shoulder to shoulder with me and I want to thank you.

Here’s the deal. In these final days, they’re not likely to back down and their desperation will continue to grow. In order to fight back and ensure we have the resources to win, we set an online fundraising goal of $1 million and 12,000 donations for October. 

We’re almost to the end of the month and we’re close to our goal. Keep us on track and make your contribution here:

We’ve got less than two weeks until Election Day, so it’s important to give now and help us finish strong. You have stood with us throughout this entire campaign. Let’s win this thing.

Make your contribution here:

Two Men, A Country In Crisis – You Decide – Allen West for Congress

Patrick Murphy is running a nasty, negative campaign against Allen West to distract from his dangerous record. Help Allen fight back:

“We Must Fight Back” for Allen West – Left-Wing SuperPAC Anonymous Million Dollar Donor

Dear Friends,

Thank you!  With your help, we hit our $75,000 goal.  

With one day left, it is important that we surpass $100,000 for the week because just today we received news that the left-wing Super PAC which already committed over a million dollars to our defeat has an anonymous donor who will match all donations made today. 

Whether the donor is George Soros, Patrick Murphy’s father, or some moonbat from Hollywood, one thing is for sure, the liberals want a fight—and we are going to give them one!

I’m counting on your contribution today. You can donate here.

Thanks for all you do!


Steadfast and Loyal,

LTC (R) Allen B. West
Member of Congress

P.S. We’ve got just a day left to reach $100,000 for the week. I’m counting on you to help us reach our goal by donating here.

Congressman Allen West “I Will Not Back Down From A Fight”

Published on Sep 19, 2012 by 

Dear Friends,

I don’t back down from a fight and I know you don’t either. In the next 3 days, we need to raise another $75,000 to counterattack on the airwaves.

As you know, we are a top target for national liberals and we are finally seeing what we expected all along: millions in negative attack ads. The DCCC and liberal Super PACs are going up with ads this week repeating the tired lies about a war on women and Medicare. It is only a matter of time until Patrick Murphy’s dad launches more attacks likely to be as nasty as his ad depicting me beating women.

With 7 weeks to go until the election, now’s the time to take action! Will you be one of the 750 supporters who contributes $10 or one of the 500 supporters who contributes $20 and helps us reach our goal: AllenWestForCongress.Com

We have run a strong campaign. We have unapologetically stood for conservative principles against an onslaught from the corrupt liberal media and we continue to draw a clear contrast with my liberal opponent—a man so inept and ignorant on the issues he refuses real debates and hides from the public.

When the left-wing groups attack, with your help we are going to match them dollar for dollar.

Steadfast and Loyal,
LTC (R) Allen B. West
Member of Congress

P.S. In order to meet our fundraising goals and match left-wing attacks dollar-for-dollar, we need you to join our team of online contributors today with a contribution of $10 or more.

West Receives Perfect Score from National Federation of Independent Businesses

(WASHINGTON) — Congressman Allen West (R-FL) received the coveted National Federation of Independent Business Guardian of Small Business Award Thursday.

The award is presented to Members of Congress who NFIB considers “champions” of small business owners. West received a perfect score of ‘100’ for his votes on 13 key NFIB supported pieces of legislation concerning issues from healthcare, energy and Federal Government regulations.

“Our small businesses are at the heart of keeping this economy going and I am proud to receive this award,” West said. “As I travel Dixie Highway in Palm Beach County and visit small businesses in South Florida, I see firsthand the importance of expanding opportunities and reducing burdensome regulations on our independent employers. Our small businesses represent the best of the American spirit and I will continue to be their voice on Capitol Hill.”

NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner praised West for his commitment to American business owners.

“In the 112th Congress, Representative West proved he is willing to stand up and do big things for small business,” Danner said.  “Guardian-award winners are genuine small business champions, consistently voting to promote and protect the right of small business owners to own, operate and grow their businesses.”

National Federation of Independent Business is the nation’s leading small business association. Founded in 1943 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, NFIB gives small and independent business owners a voice in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business. NFIB has 350,000 members and its mission is to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses.
