Allen West “I wish Obama, Reid, and Pelosi were sitting beside me this morning so their spirit would be convicted to give 100% to the American people”

Last week heard a fantastic sermon from Pastor Steve at First Baptist Church in Lafayette Louisiana. Got another great message today at Christ Fellowship in Palm Beach Gardens from visiting Pastor John Maxwell. Last election cycle we were inundated with the liberal progressive poll-tested message of 1% vs 99%. Pastor Maxwell spoke today about being a 100%-er: 100% for God in all things. We studied the relationship between Elijah and Elisha (1 Kings 19 and 2 Kings 2) and how Elisha’s faithfulness in small things led to his being blessed with a double portion of God’s spirit upon Elijah’s ascent. Again, I wish Obama, Reid, and Pelosi were sitting beside me this morning so their spirit would be convicted to give 100% to the American people, especially considering their desire to inflict pain, misery, and hardship upon my countrymen just for political gain. However, the closing admonition from Pastor Maxwell were Elisha’s words of encouragement, which spoke directly to me: Be Diligent. Be Ready. Be Willing. Be Bold. Be Courageous. Roger that Elisha, Game on!

@AllenWest “Let’s not have such a short-term memory. Obama went into Libya without congressional approval”

Don’t Let Obama Make You a Scapegoat for Syria: Congress

Allen West Benghazi - Syria

LISTEN TO THE DISCUSSION WITH ALLEN WEST AND LAURA INGRAHAM BY CLICKING HERE: TOWNHALL.COM

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Monday, West said this was a symptom of Obama not wanting to deal with those consequences and looking for someone to share the blame, should action in Syria go wrong. He pointed to Obama’s actions against Libya which he didn’t seek congressional approval to back up that claim.

“I think what you just saw play out was a president who has a history of voting ‘present,’ and all of a sudden he got out ahead of himself, and he realized that, ‘If I take an action on my own, I’m going to own this,’” West said. “And no one is thinking like the military mindset, what are the branches and sequels of an action? What is the counter-reaction? What is the follow-on, second- and third-order effects we’re going to have to contend with? And I believe that is something President Obama does not want to deal with.”

“So therefore he says, ‘Well, you know, I want to do this, but let me go to Congress, and let’s get them to approve it, because if something bad happens down the road then we can always come back and say, ‘I probably would not have done if Congress had not approved it and given me the authority,’” West continued. “But let’s not have such a short-term memory. He went into Libya without congressional approval. He went beyond the 90 days of the war powers resolution, the War Powers Act. And we lost an ambassador. We lost Sean Smith, Ty Woods, Glen Doherty. That was sovereign American territory, that consulate there. We did nothing. We have done nothing. Where is our response to Benghazi? Who has been held accountable for that other than the poor little schmuck that’s still sitting in jail because of a video?”

@AllenWest “Obama’s grand strategy in the Middle East Seems to be how many countries he can destabilize: Libya, Egypt, and now Syria?”

AW NGTV

by Allen West via Facebook

Ok, I get it now, President Obama stated we would pivot away from the Middle East as part of his foreign policy strategy, or lack thereof. A few months ago, he gave a speech at the National Defense University to state that the “war on terror” has ended. Obama’s grand strategy in the Middle East Seems to be how many countries he can destabilize: Libya, Egypt, and now Syria? In each case he has removed not so good guys, but has enabled Islamic terrorists and totalitarians to gain power. Therefore, not only has Obama sought to “fundamentally transform” America but also the Middle East. He is becoming the best buddy of the Muslim Brotherhood and jihadists and a nightmare for our true buddy, Israel.

Real vs. Politically Manufactured Priorities – What is the legacy for the next generation in the black community?
This week we have seen our nation become enthralled with last weekend’s news of George Zimmerman being found “not guilty” in the Trayvon Martin trial. There has been monumental media coverage of this case, trial, and now in the aftermath of the jury verdict.

This was a tragic event; a young man lost his life.

I ask if all this media attention is part of race-based politics resulting from misguided priorities?

Race Baiters Weighting the Court of Public Opinion
Perhaps, if there had been less external influencers advocating for their warped vision — or version — of social justice, the legal system could have proceeded and done what was expected. But when the race baiters become engaged and place their demands upon the system, the system cannot operate objectively.

Was a young unarmed man shot and killed?

Yes.

Was there undo pressure to create charges that created stipulations and conditions that would be difficult for the prosecution to present?

Yes.

It is clearly evident that with all the media, advocacy groups, and government involvement, this case was being tried not in a courthouse but in the arena of public opinion even before it reached trial. Then when the case finally went to trial it became transparently clear, at least to some, that “legally” this was going to be a heavy lift.

The outside voices pushed this to be a second-degree murder charge, a charge that puts a much higher burden upon the prosecution. Or perhaps, in certain circles in America, we have come to a place where we do not believe in “innocent until proven guilty.” The responsibility of the prosecution was to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt; they were unable to do so.

The Federal Government as Pawn of Special Interests
Now, in the aftermath, we see the external actors not learning their lesson but pressing their case. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid prodded the United States Department of Justice to take a look into the case. “This isn’t over,” Sen. Reid told NBC’s Meet the Press.

The NAACP immediately asked the U.S. Department of Justice to file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman. Funny, they were really silent when former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams wrote that the prosecution was triggered by threats from the head of the New Black Panther Party.

The Congressional Black Caucus released a statement saying Trayvon Martin’s civil rights were violated. Where is the evidence?

Does it concern anyone other than myself to hear politicians and advocacy groups seeking to use the federal government to guarantee their desired outcomes, their version of justice?

If we are a constitutional republic that regards the system of federalism and states’ rights as preeminent, then should we be using the federal government as a battering ram? Yes, there are times when the federal government should intercede and those instances are outlined clearly in the U.S. Constitution.

Just as we see cherry-picking of laws to enforce by the federal government, the last thing we need is for the federal government to cherry-pick which cases deserve its attention.

General Holder & Booker T. Washington
This week Attorney General Holder made several references during speeches to the predominantly black Delta Sigma Theta sorority and NAACP conventions expressing sympathy for the Trayvon Martin’s parents. I find it interesting that Holder was not so concerned for the parents of deceased Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry as a result of Operation Fast and Furious.

The Justice Department has set up a website for “tips” on the issue of a civil rights probe after the FBI conducted an extensive investigation and found no animus of racial hatred, and even the prosecution in the trial stated it was not about race.

We should not have certain media commentators with a very questionable past becoming the leading voices that only use inflammatory language for their own personal relevance.

In 1911 Booker T. Washington stated, “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

The class to which this great leader refers is maintaining the media spectacle at the expense of the major concerns of the black community.

What Are the Real Crises in the Black Community?
While tragic, Trayvon Martin’s death should not be the reason that the black community is marching in the streets. Black unemployment, gang crime, health problems, and abortion rates are plagues upon black people across the country.

Let’s first look at the shooting murder of 16-year-old Darryl Green who last Thursday was found lying facedown in an abandoned house in Chicago’s south side Englewood neighborhood. It seems this young man refused to join a gang … And what do you hear?

Chirping.

In April, De’Marquise Elkins, 17, and Dominique Lang, 15, both pleaded “not guilty” to theMarch 21st shooting of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago during a robbery of his Mother in Brunswick Georgia. And what do you hear?

Chirping.

The unemployment rate for blacks is at an all-time high and the black teenage unemployment rate is epic. Yet when a group like the Black American Leadership Alliance stands up against the current Senate immigration legislation (S.744) articulating its adverse affects on the black community in letters to the Senate and Congressional Black Caucus and by holding a rally in DC this past week, what do you hear?

Chirping.

Since 1973 Black American deaths have emanated from*:

AIDS: 203,695
Violent Crimes: 306,313
Accidents: 370,723
Cancer: 1,638,350
Heart Disease: 2,266,789
Abortion: 13,000,000

*All figures are based upon cumulative statistics by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC)

Please watch our Next Generation.TV video on this. 

The incidence of abortion in the black community has resulted in a tremendous loss of life, but you will only get chirping from the Congressional Black Caucus or the NAACP unless you go to websites like BlackGenocide.org or the National Black Catholic Congress.

We are talking about a black community that could be close to 36 percent larger. I do believe in research for ovarian, cervix, uterus cancers and treatment for fibroid tumors that promote better reproductive health for women.

So what are the real priorities in the black community? Politically manufactured crises, as pushed by the race-baiting, faux leaders in the black community, propped up by progressive socialists and the complicit media?

Just take a walk through any inner city neighborhood and ask yourself what is the legacy for the next generation in the black community.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West

The Motto’s That Define Us – The Obama administration could use a few good words

What a week! We have officially opened our new office/studio here in Washington, D.C., and it is great to have a finger on the pulse – yeah, I know exactly what you are thinking.

It has been one heck of a week, and I can tell you I’d much rather be me than the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Now you ask, “Why?” My response is the subject for this week’s missive – mottos.

See, I grew up in an organization defined by its respective mottos, creeds that guided those of us who served. And if people are really sincere about their service to this nation within their respective military units, these mottos define them for the rest of their lives.

I recall being a young fella and watching the movie “The Green Berets” with John Wayne. I remember the scene of him standing at Airborne School and shouting, “Who are you?” and hearing the reply, “Airborne!” The next challenge was “How far?” and the response was, “All the Way!” Years later, there I stood on that same training ground shouting: “Airborne, sir! Airborne Sergeant Black Hat!”

And when I and the rest of the 4th Battalion, 325th Infantry Regiment (Airborne Battalion Combat Team) reached our first duty station in Vicenza, Italy, we took pride in our challenge and response, “Airborne all the way!” This motto signified that we were a cut above others, that our standards were just a bit higher. We were U.S. Army paratroopers after all.

My second duty assignment was in the famed 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, Kan. Our motto harkened back to the division’s incredible landing on Omaha Beach, France, on D-Day: “No mission too difficult, no sacrifice too great, duty first.”

That simple creed articulated what it meant to serve in that division but also to serve our nation. It was never about you. It was about duty first!

I also was an artillery officer and commanded Bravo Battery, 6th Field Artillery Regiment, where our motto was “Swift and bold.” I have always tried to honor that creed by being swift to action, not delaying, and being bold in my stance for freedom and principle.

After I commanded, I served in the 4th Battalion, 5th Field Artillery Regiment. (Trivia fact: Our sister battalion, 1/5 FA, was the home of Alpha Battery, which was known as “Hamilton’s Own” after our first Treasury secretary, Alexander Hamilton, who served in that historic artillery outfit.) The motto of the 5th Field Artillery was “Faithful and true,” and God knows none of us are perfect but what a fantastic motto. To be faithful to a set of principles and true to something greater than self is the epitome of being a selfless servant of the republic.

Proud to be ‘second to none’
After instructing the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps at Kansas State University I headed to the Republic of Korea and the famed 2nd Infantry Division. The division motto? “Second to none.” Who the heck doesn’t want to see their unit as first – the best? Who would not want to see America as “Second to none”?

We never apologized for being in the ole Black Patch Division. Some people saw us as the cannon fodder for a North Korea invasion. We knew that if the North Koreans ever thought about crossing the demilitarized zone separating them from South Korea, they would get a butt whuppin’ second to none!

After serving in Korea, I was promoted to major and selected to attend the Army Staff College in Fort Leavenworth, Kan. My orders then took me to Fort Bragg, N.C., and the 18th Field Artillery Brigade. My mentor Col. Denny R. Lewis was the brigade commander. He instituted a new motto to complement our “Sweat saves blood” unit crest motto – “Tough, proud, disciplined.”

I also served there in the 1st Battalion (Air Assault), 377th Field Artillery Regiment, where our motto was “Be bold, Air Assault.”

In the political realm, what liberal progressives need to understand is that my DNA is hardwired to be bold, tough, aggressive and disciplined in my stand against whatever threatens my nation. Plus I’m an ole Southern boy. Never get our dander up ’cause we like a good old-fashioned fight.

My last two duty assignments – Camp Lejeune, N.C., and Fort Hood, Texas – added the icing to the cake. First I was selected to do an exchange assignment with the 2nd Marines Expeditionary Force and the world knows the Marines motto “Semper fidelis,” translated “Always faithful!” My final assignment was to command an artillery battalion in the 4th Infantry Division, another historic Army unit that landed at Utah Beach, France, on D-Day.

The motto of our 2nd Battalion, 20th Field Artillery Regiment (MLRS) was “Duty, not reward” – that is why we serve. And I still use the motto of the famed Ivy Division to sign off here every week: “Steadfast and loyal.”

Throughout my military career I also had some awesome call signs. OK, they were not as sexy as Maverick, Goose or Iceman from Hollywood’s “Top Gun. But Detonate 6, Ranger 14, Steel 3, Gunslinger 5, and Deep Strike 6 are still great.

What motto’s define Obama and his team?
Why did I share this with you all? Consider the scandals of our current federal government – the fast and furious “gun-walking” scandal; the reaction to the terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya; the shameful and deadly Extortion 17 incident I revisited last week; the IRS’ politically motivated targeting of conservative nonprofit groups; the Justice Department’s secret collection of Associated Press telephone records; and much more.
screenshot20130516at824
Ask yourself, what is the motto of the Obama administration? What creed do all the president’s men and women embrace as a guiding light to serve and protect the American republic?

What would you see as appropriate call signs for President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric Holder?

I recount the units I served and their mottos with great pride. Those simple words were more than just momentary challenges and responses during my military career; they are defining descriptors for my life. And I couldn’t care less what characterless media writers say.

Ask yourself, can our elected leaders sign off with the words you see next?

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West
