Distinguished Conservative Thought-Leader; Highly Decorated Military Vet @AllenWest Joins

Allen West “Proud to announce I’ve joined a distinguished group of speakers rep’d by World Wide Speakers”

Congressman-Allen-B.-West-WWSG-11

A fierce advocate of conservative values, strong education, and public service, Allen West is the third of four generations of military servicemen in his family. His parents instilled in him a very basic principle, love of God and Country.

Having served in several combat zones – including Operation Desert Storm and in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was battalion commander for the Army’s 4th Infantry Division, and in Afghanistan, where he trained Afghan officers to take on the responsibility of securing their own country, West has proven his unparalleled ability to lead under difficult situations. During his 22 years of service in the U.S. Army, he was distinguished by numerous commendations and honors for valor, achieving the rank of Lt. Colonel.

West’s upbringing, education, and distinguished military service inspired him to become a staunch advocate of national security, armed services, education, and veteran issues, and accordingly, to seek public office.  In 2010, he became the first black Republican from Florida to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives since Reconstruction.

Fittingly, Congressman West brought to the floors of the Capitol his steadfast passion, his firebrand leadership skills, and his unwavering principles.  He will bring the same inspirational qualities to your audience.

LTC Allen West “This is your gun control, this finger right here – your index finger,’’

Capture

By Bill Hoffmann and Kathleen Walter for NEWSMAX

Former Rep. Allen West predicts the Obama Administration will fail to enact restrictive gun laws that buck the Second Amendment and believes the issue is more about people control than gun control.

“This is your gun control, this finger right here – your index finger,’’ West told Newsmax TV in an exclusive interview.

“Nothing happens with that gun until you put that finger into the trigger well and you pull it. So my concern is that we’re not talking about the real issue, we’re talking about a political agenda.

“I don’t [see Obama succeeding]. I think the president maybe believes he has some sort of populous mandate . . . but that’s not going to fly very well.’’

The Florida Republican, a retired U.S. Army colonel who’s a tea party favorite, said there is “big concern’’ across the country about Obama enacting an executive order to push through a firearms mandate.

“That’s not in contra, as we are a republic with co-equal branches of government, separate of power — so that’s what really concerns people,’’ West said.

The lawmaker said when he studied the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Virginia Tech, Columbine High School,
and a Colorado movie theater “the real commonality is . . . that there were parental problems, there was a mental issue.

“And I think that’s where we should start first and foremost.’’

West said members of the military, police, and civilians are strongly responding to the possibility of a White House intervention.

To a great General… by Allen West

GenScwa

 

by Allen West on Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 8:54pm

General Schwarzkopf was our Coalition Force Commander in Operation Desert Shield/Storm. He was a true warrior and not a political General. He helped restore our country’s pride in our military and removed the public specter that had loomed since Vietnam. The victory parade after the First Gulf War was as much for “Stormin’ Norman” and my brother’s generation who had served in those jungles than for us.

I will never forget when our Brigade Task Force, 2d Bde 1st Inf Div, under the Command of COL Tony Moreno was tasked to secure the Safwan Airfield for the surrender talks. I was a young Captain assigned to TF 2-16 Inf, part of 2Bde, as the Fire Support Officer. I and others strained to get a glimpse of the towering stature of the man, General Schwarzkopf. I remember, even though we were not close, when Gen Schwarzkopf turned our way, gave us a thumbs up, to which we stood tall and rendered salutes.

To a great General who led us to victory in what was our first combat operation, I offer a salute.

No mission too difficult, No sacrifice too great.

Duty First Sir!

Rep Allen West “Does Anyone Else See the Hypocrisy Playing Out in Michigan?”

536340_506903539320599_346963842_n

by Allen West via Facebook

Does anyone else see the hypocrisy playing out in Michigan with the right-to-work pending legislation and protest? It is funny how the Left is pro-choice on one very specific issue but against choice when it comes to individual liberty and freedom.

In this instance it is playing out with an individual decision to become a union member. Should not middle income American workers be able to determine where they want their wages, (already horribly depressed in this economy), to go? Obviously not — seems the liberal progressives’ definition of liberty is someone taking the liberty to decide what is best for you and your life. To me, that is tyranny!

Congressman Allen West’s Final Weekly Wrap-Up

6711696859_fd62dedf74

Dear Patriot,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and indeed all Americans, it is time to prepare our weekly update for dissemination.

Today is the 71st Anniversary of the attack on US Naval Base, Pearl Harbor which truly marked our entry into World War II. I can still remember my dad sharing with me his feeling when he heard about this attack on the radio. Of course, he would go forth and serve in the US Army during World War II in the European Theater of Operations (ETO).

Little did my dad realize at the time, that he was beginning a legacy of service to our nation that has now spanned four generations. My dad was a member of that “Greatest Generation” and today his grandson, my nephew, carries that honor to this day.

As with the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, America has, and always will, produce the caliber of men and women who stand as guardians for our nation’s honor. These are men and women who have answered the call then and continue to do so now.

Tomorrow many in our nation will watch the next generation of these men and women as “America’s Football Game” takes place, Army vs. Navy. I wonder how many of these young men and women have relatives who were at Pearl Harbor, or served in World War II?

I am proud to know that my own godson, Midshipman John Melvin Hendricks (that rascal who joined the Navy) will be taking that field tomorrow, his second year.

So as we remember Pearl Harbor today, let us never forget those who will stand and answer the call to arms to protect this Republic, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

And in speaking of those who serve, I was angered by the developments this week surrounding Army Major Nidal Hasan who three years ago shot 43 soldiers and Department of the Army Civilians, killing 13. An Army appellate court decision removed the current assigned judge from the case citing that he was not impartial. Furthermore, the court backed the assertion that Major Hasan did not have to be forced to shave his beard.

It just appears again that we are placating and playing the game of political correctness. It is horrific enough that we have classified this terrorist attack as “work place violence” but consider the continued disappointment of those who lost loved ones on that day… for them, it will always be a day which shall live in infamy.

This week we voted in the House of Representatives to remove the word “lunatic” from federal law. However, that does not mean there isn’t plenty of lunacy going on in the workings of the federal government!

Further, I find it interesting when media pundits and talking heads ask the disturbing question, “What will America do if Bashar al-Asad uses chemical weapons in his people?” I would have hoped it would never get to the point of his feeling empowered to use those weapons. It just seems we continue to take a defensive posture reacting to events.

If we had done as military generals on the ground had suggested in Iraq and retained a viable and credible military presence in the region, we could have precluded this. Instead we now have Iran transiting across Iraq to support Asad… and continuing to support terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad.

The Obama Administration was in such a rush to demand former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak step down. Why not the same vigor when it comes to Mohammed Morsi?

I also recall the Obama Administration supporting a Marxist/Socialist President in Honduras and not supporting the movement in Iran against Mahmoud Ahmandinejad.

Confusing? Just imagine what our allies are thinking.

And what happened in Benghazi? America must never stop asking that question, regardless of what the mainstream media wants to hide. Losing an Ambassador, a Foreign Service officer, and two former US Navy SEALS must never EVER become the new normal.

Today, we received the monthly jobs report for November, with 7.7% unemployment and 146,000 jobs created. On the surface it is good news. However, one step beyond the superficial, we realize this is still an economy limping along.

First, the previous job creation numbers from the months of September and October were revised downward by 50,000 respectively. Second, the unemployment rate dropped due to another 350,000 Americans dropping out of the labor force. This means we still have a labor force participation rate hovering at 63.6%, which has and continues to be a record low. At this rate, we could theoretically achieve an unemployment rate of zero if everyone just quit working altogether.

Finally, our U6 computation rate remains dangerously high, due not only to 12 million unemployed Americans, but also a little over 8 million underemployed Americans.

Combined with a fragile economy where the US Federal Reserve is printing money in order to cover a monthly $40 billion mortgage debt, America is hardly out of the woods.

These simple facts just reinforce the need to have sound fiscal, tax, and regulatory policy — not politics — that will incentivize economic growth and wealth expansion. The last thing the private sector and job creators need worry about is more confiscatory economics masquerading as viable solutions to a serious fiscal problem.

Washington DC spends too much, and sending this Administration more American taxpayer dollars is not the answer. It is mathematically impossible to tax “the rich” enough to make a dent in our debt. We must be talking about where to reduce spending first. And why is it that only taxpayers, not the federal government, are expected to “share the burden?”

This is my final weekly update from our Congressional office, but it is by no means my final weekly update… When one door closes, another opens and we shall continue to advocate for truth, the restoration of this Republic, and promote Constitutional conservative principles in the New Year.

It has been my honor to serve as the Representative of the People of Florida’s 22nd Congressional District. The fight for our Constitutional Republic has truly begun and I will be on the frontline.

May everyone have a wonderful holiday season and may God bless the United States of America.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Rep. Allen West Statement on Anniversary of Attack on Pearl Harbor

1354814592_7134_pearl-harbor-mem-day

(WASHINGTON)—Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today regarding the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor:

“One quiet Sunday morning 71 years ago, a brazen and surprise attack on our shores shocked and galvanized our nation more forcefully than any other single event had ever done.  More than 2,400 Americans were killed and more than 1,100 were wounded. The Pearl Harbor attack sank four United States Navy battleships and damaged four more. It also damaged or sank three cruisers, three destroyers, one minelayer, and damaged 188 aircraft.

Today we remember those who lost their lives on that day, and honor those who valiantly fought on. With courage, sacrifice and selfless dedication, these veteran heroes helped protect our country and preserve our freedoms.

We believed we would most likely never again see an attack of this type on our shores, but we were wrong. As the events of September 11, 2001 have demonstrated, those who wish to engage the United States on the 21st Century battlefield will devise ever more nefarious ways to kill Americans in order to disrupt and harm our way of life.

We must remain vigilant, we must always be prepared, and we must ensure we have the resources to appropriately and adequately respond to those who seek to extinguish our beacon of freedom in the world.

We owe a debt to those who perished at Pearl Harbor, we owe a debt to those who fought on and to those who continue to fight courageously for our country today, and we must remain steadfast for our children and grandchildren so they may live freely and peacefully in this blessed land.”

Rep. Allen West “Exactly which principles and values does CAIR support?”

0708_TCLO_TCMCWESTGALLERY0013_t607

by: Congressman Allen West via Facebook

I find it curious that the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is now giving political advice to the GOP. In today’s Washington Times, CAIR paid for a full-page ad entitled “GOP Asked to Reassess Its Relationship with American Muslims.”

This is the same organization which was an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terrorism funding trial in American history (The Holy Land Foundation).

Perhaps CAIR might like to reassess its own relationship with the Constitutional principles and values of our American republic. I would like CAIR to provide some sensitive thoughts and insight into why Army Major Nidal Hasan still has not been brought to trial three years after shouting “Allahu Akhbar” while gunning down 43 American soldiers and civilians, killing 13, and why his religion gives him the right to openly disregard US Army standards by refusing to shave his beard.

Exactly which principles and values does CAIR support?
