Allen West “I intend to answer the call to arms for my republic.”

In February, we launched the Next Generation TV project as part of PJ Media and PJTV in order to highlight the pressing issues facing future generations of Americans. We sought to make the connection between the generations of parents and grandparents and their children and grandchildren, an endeavor to educate and illuminate the spectrum of generations. As Plato stated: “Those who refuse to participate in politics shall be governed by their inferiors.”

It is now time to take the Next Generation TV project to its next phase: truly engaging the millennial generation. It is rather challenging for a salt-and-pepper-haired man such as myself to make a strong connection, regardless of having two daughters aged 20 and 16. I do hope we have been successful in challenging you to “stand up for the future,” and to have conversations with your children and grandchildren.

The promise of America is at stake: the promise that inspires us to the “pursuit of happiness” now faces a competing belief, namely that the government can “guarantee your happiness.” This past week on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill posed an interesting question to guests Juan Williams and Mary Katharine Ham:

Can we punish some in order to enable all?

This question addressed the heart of the ideology confronting America, and reminds us of Karl Marx’s creed: “From each according to their ability to each according to their need.” Marx championed government redistribution under the guise of economic equality, fairness, and “social justice.” Juan Williams’ response represented the emotional basis behind some people’s belief in redistribution — essentially, we should want to help people. Yet America is the greatest country the world has ever known because it was established to foster “equality of opportunity.” Such a government emphasizes setting the conditions for the success of the individual, the preeminent entity in our republic.

America is now embroiled in a fight against an ideology that favors “equality of outcomes,” and elevates the collective over the individual. The leading progressive thinker John Dewey stated:

The state has the responsibility for creating institutions under which individuals can effectively realize the potentialities that are theirs.

Also:

Freedom is not something that individuals have as a ready-made possession. It is something to be achieved, natural rights and natural liberties exist only in the kingdom of mythological social zoology.

With such ideological impetus, it amazes me how the classification of “progressive” retains a connotation of cool. Progressivism is antithetical to the American idea. In our collective ignorance, America is falling for something that has never succeeded on the face of the Earth. Per Thomas Sowell:

 We have exchanged that which works for that which sounds good.

Why must we stand up for the future? We currently are the first generation of Americans that will leave less for subsequent generations than we inherited. Reversing this tragedy is our challenge. Today, I am committing myself even more to taking this message across the U.S., in person and via media — an Allen West liberty and freedom road show of sorts is on its way. I intend to answer the call to arms for my republic.

I look forward to seeing many of you out and about. By mid-October you will be able to keep up with my mission on AllenBWest.com. Next Generation TV will refocus to wholeheartedly engage with our millennial generations, as my daughters Aubrey and Austen constantly remind me that I am not terribly cool. However, they know their Dad fights to ensure their future has more opportunity than the one my parents fought to establish for me.

I humbly implore all of you: Go “All In” for America, for your legacy and our next generation. They need us to display courage, competence, commitment, conviction, and character, to never falter, surrender, or retreat, and to hold hearing the following words as the ultimate goal:

Thanks Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Granddad.

The Latest Leftist Ididocy – Allen West , ‘Anti-Semite’ !?!

Friday, September 27, 2013 19:44 – Before It’s News

When you write on a site like this, and you look at news coverage regularly and with even a pretense of objectivity, one thing becomes clear pretty quickly. Unless it’ simply too outright in-your-face blatant to be ignored (and many times, even if it is), political or media figures on the Left can get caught mouthing outright stupidity, lying openly, stealing, committing fraud, serially abusing women, engaging in racism or numerous other types of disreputable behavior and get a pass provided they’re down for the Leftist agenda. At worst, when it can’t be ignored or spun, it gets buried pretty quickly.

On the other hand, when it comes to folks on the right of the spectrum, anyone the Left perceives as a political enemy, even the slightest hint of a misdeed makes headlines for weeks. And if there’s isn’t really anything there, the Left will cheerfully make it up and trumpet it anyway. That’s especially true when the target is articulate and seems to be gaining some traction. The examples of this are too numerous even to mention.

I happened to run across this item from the Soros-funded galley slaves over at BuzzFeed..just look at this headline:

“Allen West Out At PJ Media! Sources say he had an anti-Semitic exchange with a staffer, calling her a “Jewish American princess.”

Gasp!!! Horrors!!

Ordinarily I would just laugh, shake my head and move on. The idea of Colonel West being a Jew hater is so hysterically funny that it could almost pass for an Onion headline.

But then, checking my spam file, I find a number of comments from Leftist trolls. like this one:

So it looks as though Allen West got caught calling a woman a ‘Jewish American princess’. What a dilemma for Rob! Does his love for the moron West trump his pretend outrage over anti-Semitic slurs? I have my money on West – he himself would probably tell you that Jews have no principles… Ha!

Yes, believe it or not, we have an anonymous Jew haters accusing someone else of being a Jew hater! Talk about projection.I found about five of them in my spam pile, all as comments for different articles and all sounding suspiciously alike.

In the first place, knowing that in fact Colonel West is about as anti-semitic as I am, the idea that this is a ‘dilemma’ is pretty comical:

Liberals have a very difficult time recognizing radical Islam. They have an even harder time uttering these words, or other words like, terrorism, jihadism and radical muslim. The left does not have difficulty blaming Christians for every perceived injustice, so why can’t they blame jihadists for the Boston Marathon attack, the London beheading or Benghazi?

ALLEN WEST’S WEEKLY WRAP UP VIA NEXT GENERATION TV

It seems like everyone all of a sudden is learning about something that has been looming for nearly 18 months – sequestration. That awkward word is Washington-speak for draconian, across-the-board cuts to federal spending mandated in 2011 because the unduly titled “super committee” in Congress failed to make more targeted spending cuts.

Some officials in Washington will tell you we don’t have a spending problem. (Boy, they must be drinking something good!) But when you analyze the cuts set to kick in today, you learn that they represent only a 2.4 percent decrease in the growth of the federal budget. Actual spending still will increase!

The cuts will be only $85 billion a year; the United States truly borrows that much in a month. The Federal Reserve also is printing money and buying mortgage security and treasury bond debt to the tune of $85 billion per month.

So what is all the hoopla about sequestration?

On Tuesday in Newport News, Va., President Obama decried the idea of sequestration. He never mentioned that the idea sprang from his White House. Instead, he highlighted all of the presumably terrible consequences for federal programs that could happen because of budget cuts.

As I watched this performance, I asked myself, “Is this the new face of American leadership?” I remembered when I was a military commander and wondered what my unit would have thought of me had I stood before them and complained about how bad things were.

What if that day before we crossed into Iraq in 2003 I stood before our battalion and screeched about how we would die, how great the enemy was and how we were not trained sufficiently to win. Where would the inspiration be?

Could it be that with the election and re-election of President Obama, we as a nation have forgotten what resolute leadership looks like?

While watching the recent confirmation hearings of CIA Director-designate John Brennan, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Secretary of State John Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, I asked myself: “This is it? This is the best we have as the greatest nation the world has ever known?”

Just this week, new Secretary of State Kerry was over in Germany yucking it up before telling an audience, “In America people have the right to be stupid.” Is that leadership?

True leaders from American history

My years in the military taught me that leadership has five components: courage, competence, commitment, conviction and character. We studied many profiles in American leadership, and I would like to share a few with you.

Could you see any of our current elected officials at Valley Forge, Pa., during the American Revolution, encouraging a ragtag Army to hang on as George Washington did? Do we even teach our kids about “The Swamp Fox” Francis Marion and his exploits during that war?

How often do we study why Francis Scott Key wrote “The Star-Spangled Banner” because of the courage of the men at Fort McHenry, Md., who kept our flag flying despite the constant British naval barrage? Or what of the courage of those men who stood stalwart under the command of Gen. Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans?

Do we know why Confederate Gen. Thomas Jackson received his nickname “Stonewall” at the First Battle of Bull Run (or Manassas, depending upon which side people fought)? And who was that single figure at Little Round Top, a professor of rhetoric who gave an order that saved Day 2 at Gettysburg, Pa.? (In case you missed it in history class, the answer is Col. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain.)

How many Americans remember that when Germans surrounded the entire 101st Airborne Division in December 1944 in Bastogne, Brig. Gen. Anthony McAuliffe responded to the call for surrender with one word: “NUTS!”?

Consider the Battle of Guadalcanal when, between August 1942 and February 1943, U.S. Marines looked out and saw that their naval support had departed. Did those Marines quit? No, just remember the young lieutenant colonel named Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller who inspired his Marines and the resolve of Sgt. John Basilone.

I served in Korea in 1995, and those were some of the coldest winters I have ever encountered. But that cold pales in comparison to the extreme conditions at Chosin Reservoir in November-December 1950, when the Chinese Army surrounded our forces. Did the American leaders surrender or complain? No, they vowed to attack in any direction.

The first full encounter between U.S. military forces and the North Vietnamese Army came in the La Drang Valley. Lt. Col. Hal Moore withstood odds of one American to every five Vietnamese and defeated the enemy – exploits of the 1st Cavalry Division’s 7th Cavalry Regiment made famous in the book and movie “We Were Soldiers Once and Young.”

In Mogadishu, Somalia, two brave Delta Force snipers landed to protect one downed and injured U.S. Army pilot. Master Sgt. Gary Gordon and Sgt. First Class Randy Shughart exemplified the highest standards of courage – an 18-hour battle to ensure no man was left behind. And last year, we saw former U.S. Navy SEALS disobeying orders to save and protect Americans at a consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Leaders lead in adversity, too

See, leaders lead, and they do so when the goings are tough. As a matter of fact, they thrive in adverse situations. Has America forgotten leadership – men who challenged us to go to the moon or told an evil empire to tear down that wall?

We need to share profiles in American leadership to inspire the next generation because I fear that our schools shall not, and the current crop of individuals in positions of leadership are nothing more than imposters.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West
