AWB WEBSITE

Friends,

I hope everyone enjoyed a Happy Halloween and I hope you didn’t forget to “fall back” one hour as we exited daylight savings time this weekend.

It seems appropriate that in this week when our kids celebrated the time-honored tradition of “trick or treat,” we grown-up Americans were introduced to the same from the Obama administration. But it was mostly tricks – especially about the reality of the (not really) Affordable Care Act.

We do actually have a small treat for you though – our ever-popular Data Cards are now available for download and will be uploaded monthly. You can download the latest one here. As always, the best defense against liberalism is the truth.

Steadfast and Loyal

“Americans must hope Allen West is correct in his assessments” via @wtcommunities @Dan_Gray_

AW20

Monday, October 14, 2013 – The Gathering Storm by Daniel Martin Gray for the Washington Times Communities

WASHINGTON, October 14, 2013 — At the American Majority New Leaders Summit in West Chester, PA on 10/11/13, I asked Lt. Col. Allen West, former Congressman, distinguished Army career officer, Tea Party favorite and potential candidate for President in 2016 a three-part question.

Given the Obama administration’s willingness to usurp powers Constitutionally mandated to Congress and their contempt for courts, did he believe that President Obama would go so far as to use a real or false-flag event as cause to abrogate Posse Commitatus, and use American troops against citizens on American soil?

Would Generals give illegal orders directing the military to act against peaceful citizens?

Would American soldiers follow illegal orders or mutiny?

West immediately scoffed at the first with a flat “No”. He strongly denied the second, citing high professional standards and ethics of military leadership. He entirely dismissed the third as even a possibility, praising the servicemen and women of our nation as dedicated and devoted to their oaths to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Perhaps West is right.

He certainly knows firsthand the character of those who serve as leaders and volunteers in our Armed Forces, and many of the patriots that now rise to meet the challenges of a government that knows no limits in pursuit of raw power. He is no stranger to conflict in service of our country, whether with deadly force abroad against foreign enemies, or in peaceful politics at home against domestic ones. He has become a touchstone of the movement to restore constitutional government. Americans must hope he is correct in his assessments.

But Americans must also recognize the factors that turn a peaceful protest into a violent mob; that make dedicated public servants behave like monsters. Emotions run high. Restraint by citizens and training of officers only runs so deep. With the Executive so eager to execute, how far will they push before they push too far? How far will the American people allow themselves to be pushed?

Allen West “Chuck Hagel should resign and the head of Fisher House should be appointed Secretary of Defense, since the Obama administration”

AWontrGreta

by Allen West via Facebook

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. http://bit.ly/1eaov3w

The Allen West Foundation Announces – The First Annual JROTC Challenge

The Allen West Foundation to donate to the Fisher House Foundation to directly help the families of the Families of Fallen Soldiers.

For Immediate Release:

The Allen West Foundation is honored to announce that it is donating $2000 to the Fisher House Foundation. This donation will go directly to help the Families of Fallen Soldiers that the administration has indicated it will not pay the Death Gratuity benefit too. The Death Gratuity payments to these families of our fallen warriors was deemed as a non-essential need during this “shutdown”.

In a statement via Facebook, former Congressman and retired Lt. Col. Allen West stated: “I don’t have the words to express my outrage. Just learned that part of the Obama administration’s shutdown strategy of inflicting pain on the American people has sunk to an incredible low. It seems our Commander-in-Chief has deemed death gratuity payments to the families of our Fallen Warriors as non-essential. The President deemed FLOTUS “Let’s move.gov” website essential but the families of the four Americans killed this weekend in Afghanistan are not essential. I am disgusted. As thankful and benevolent Americans, let’s raise money for these families. All In.”

About The Allen West Foundation:

ASK A QUESTION TO THE DOD

Allen West “Our Constitutional republic is under attack. Barack Obama and his liberal henchmen are radically transforming this nation”

westpac-logo

What is the state of our union?

Our Constitutional republic is under attack. Barack Obama and his liberal henchmen are radically transforming this nation into a socialist paradise where the federal government is invading every aspect of our lives. And without immediate action to stop them in their tracks, I fear they will succeed.

I know you share my passion for restoring commonsense conservative principles in Washington, and I’m counting on your support to elect 14 hard-charging conservatives to Congress next fall. But first, I urgently need your help to expose just how much danger America is in as long as Barack Obama is at the helm. 

My team and I have prepared a personalized, confidential survey for you to tell me how strong — or weak — you believe the state of our union is and whether you think America is on the right or wrong track.

Will you follow this link right now to complete the brief State of the Union survey? 

I’ve told you before that leadership is about character — you either have it or you don’t — and that we call leading from behind following in the military. Well if we’ve learned one thing during Obama’s six years in the Oval Office, it’s that he’s a follower.

But what does that mean for the strength of this nation? Tell me what you think by completing the confidential State of the Union survey today.

When you’ve completed the survey, I encourage you to make a generous donation to support the Guardian Fund and our efforts to elect 14 hard-charging conservatives to Congress in 2014. Whether you can donate $10, $25, $50 or more, your support is critical to successfully completing our mission.

Steadfast and Loyal,
Allen West
Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)
U.S. Congressman (2011-2013)

P.S. The State of the Union survey is a tool we’ll use on an on-going basis to gauge how strong — or weak — you believe the state of our union to be. As we enter election season 2014, your feedback will be critical to helping us keep the Obama administration’s shortcomings and failures front and center in the media. Thank you in advance for your support.

@AllenWest “The Obama admin has a confused Middle East policy and has shown ineptness in understanding the second and third order effects”

NGTV AW

by Allen West via Facebook

Watched Senators McCain and Graham’s press conference after their meeting with President Obama on the subject of Syria. It seems the tagline to be used is ‘degrade Assad and upgrade the resistance.’ I hate to be the one to ruin the party, but this administration did exactly that in Libya and never considered the unintended consequences. Now in Libya we have a proliferation of Islamist forces who are training terrorist insurgents to head to Syria, supported by the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda, as well as a consulate attack resulting in the death of four Americans, one being an Ambassador. In Egypt we ‘deposed’ Mubarak and enabled the Muslim Brotherhood and the unintended consequences are a civil war in Egypt and increased persecution of the Coptic Christians. So here we go again with the Obama administration, and useful tools from Congress, embarking America on a nebulous endeavor in the Middle East without consideration of the untended consequences. The opposition in Syria are Islamists supported by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, and Al Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama administration has not supported the Free Syrian Army under COL Riad. NO, to any US military action in Syria. The Obama administration has a confused Middle East policy and has shown ineptness in understanding the second and third order effects.

I waited to see if I was dreaming and not falling prey to silly April Fool’s prank. But, here it is 2 April and it was indeed a real and serious proclamation by the Obama administration: April is National Financial Capability Month. Ya really gotta be kidding me! Today the President announced he is funding the mapping of the human brain, but someone needs to map the brains of the people in the Obama administration (if they can find any).

This designation is asinine, especially as we all, well, at least 53% of us, are about to write checks to the federal government for them to waste on more stupid government programs. And no, we did not need a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, just another government agency. Ok America, I hereby declare April as National Pony Up Your Hard-earned Capital by Way of Onerous Taxation Month.

 

Allen West “Today I’m thrilled to introduce our new PAC, the Allen West Guardian Fund”

westpac-logo

Patriot,

I’m not known as one to mince words.

On FOX, CNN, Meet the Press, and every TV show I’ve ever been on, I’ve said what I meant and meant what I said. That’s why my life of service is rooted in leading. It’s why people like you respect me for saying what I think – candidly, hon­estly, and succinctly.

As a Member of Congress, I was only one vote out of 435. But I was one of a few who once wore the uniform of the United States Military and who understood how to wield and preserve American power.

We love our great nation too much to sit back and take our loss in 2012 as the final verdict on America. That’s why I intend to use the newfound freedom I’ve been given to take my efforts to defeat the Obama liberal progressive agenda to the next level.

Today I’m thrilled to introduce our new PAC, the Allen West Guardian Fund. When I give the opening keynote address at CPAC on Thursday, I will outline the Guardian Fund’s plans to double our efforts to expose and combat the Obama Administration and its progressive plans, but I wanted you to be the first to know about this exciting news.

Join me in building a grassroots army to help elect 12 new hard-charging constitutional conservatives who either have a military background or are minorities committed to taking a stand against big government and President Obama for the next four years.

But this isn’t about me; it’s about America. And I can’t do it alone. So I’m asking you to stand firm as we continue this fight because that’s what our country needs and what the next generation, our children and grandchildren, deserve!

Will you stand with me by contributing $25, $50, $100 or more to the Allen West Guardian Fund today?

America is the land of the free and the home of the brave. But which one will prevail over the next four years depends on you, me, and how we together fight to win the battle for our beloved country. That’s why we’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $5 Million in the next 24 months to fund this operation. 

As a soldier, I know what America needs to secure the future for the next generations.

  • First and foremost, Americans want to be safe. Safe at work, safe at home, safe from radical Islamic terrorism.
  • Second, Americans want to be free. Free to start a business and to reach for the American dream. Free to do what they are promised to be free to do in the U.S. Constitution. Free to retire without debt, without remorse, and without bankrupting their children’s future.
  • Third, Americans want to be respected and told the truth by the leaders they elect. President Obama does not tell the truth nor is he trustworthy. He’s lied about Obamacare, he’s lied about raising taxes, he’s lied about spending, and he’s lied about putting Ameri­ca first.

The bottom line-America is heading down the wrong path. The liberal progressives in Washington view the United States of America as their experimental laboratory for their failed left­ist policies, and we must stop them. That’s why I’m asking for your support of the Allen West Guardian Fund today. Please follow this link to contribute $25, $50, $100 or more today.

Thank you in advance for your support and God bless America.

Steadfast and loyal,
Allen West
Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)
U.S. Congressman (2011-2013)

P.S. Now that I’m not constrained by my duties of as a Congressman, I can focus my efforts on revealing the truth about Barack Obama’s dangerous plan for America and the left’s progressive social experiments. I’m thrilled to announce the Allen West Guardian Fund which will help to elect 12 new Constitutional conservatives and defend our Constitution. But I’m counting on you to help us raise $5 million over the next 24 months. Please follow this link to contribute $25, $50, $100 or more today.
