Allen West “The GOP is in dire need of charismatic messengers” via @WTCommunities


Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 – Allen West: Out of the Foxhole

by Allen B. West

Palm Beach Gardens, FL, November 11, 2013 — After last week’s elections in New York, New Jersey, and Virginia, the political pundit class had very unsurprising conclusions for the GOP. First, Governor Chris Christie will get the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. Second, the GOP needs to follow Christie’s model and become more moderate.

Therein lies the fundamental difference between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans play checkers, an impulsive, reactionary game while Democrats play chess. They develop a long strategic plan to be implemented incrementally, eventually attaining their objectives by any means necessary.

Saul Alinsky, the Chicago native, admitted Marxist and author of the book, Rules for Radicals is a legendary figure in the playbook of leftist, progressive tactics. Alinsky identified a set of very specific rules that ordinary citizens could follow as a means of gaining public power through revolution.

However, Alinsky’s brand of revolution was not characterized by dramatic, sweeping, or overnight transformations of social institutions. Instead Alinsky advocated a gradual infiltration of existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties. Alinsky advised organizers and their disciples to quietly, subtly gain influence within the decision-making ranks of these institutions, and to slowly introduce changes from those platforms.

To use a southern metaphor, this is just like boiling a frog. You don’t throw the frog into a pot of hot water. You have to put the frog into a pot of cold water and slowly turn up the temperature. It’s a long term strategy.

But the GOP defines strategy as telling everyone to be more like Governor Christie. (Click below to continue)


Emails surface of egregious gerrymandering of Florida’s Congressional Districts| Wasserman-Shultz


via The Shark Tank and Washington Free Beacon

The proverbial political cat is out of the bag for the Democratic Party, as emails obtained by our friends over at the Washington Free Beacon expose egregious gerrymandering of Florida’s congressional districts between Congresswoman Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee, Democratic consultants, and the Florida Democratic Party during the 2012 redistricting process.

The Shark Tank broke the story that Congressman Allen West was going to be “screwed” during redistricting, because of a deal the Republican controlled Florida Legislature had struck with Democrats. While Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin pounced on the redistricting “fix” that was taking place against Allen West, the GOP establishment moved quickly to cover its own hind, as several high-ranking legislators directly pointed the finger at two legislators as being the responsible parties of the controversy, former Senate President Mike Haridopolos and current Senate President Don Gaetz.(Rush Limbaugh discussed Shark Tank story of Allen West)

The legislators in question told the Shark Tank that Haridopolos personally asked to let the state Senate redistrict West’s congressional district. Again, desperate politicians looking to save their careers will say anything to stay out of hot water, perhaps even lie about Haridopolos’ direct involvement.


The “Parable of the Button” – Angela West


by Angela Graham-West via The Republican Coffee Corner with Angela

I am always trying to help a number of my older (read distinguished) friends to use the technology that we have. It is amazing because most of the questions that they have can be answered just by “Googling”.

I asked him what button he pushed in order to get to the outcome that he is at. He stated that he did not press any buttons because he was afraid of the outcome. He was waiting for me to tell him what button to push.

So……. I had him press a random button. Nothing dire occurred as a result of this action. We then talked about the “right” buttons to press and the fact that pressing any random button will not result in the computer falling apart or blowing up.

Never be afraid to press buttons, be judicious with personal buttons (the problem of mental health is real), however, choose the forum, be careful of the audience but fear not.


Angela West “Ain’t I a Woman?” Three conservative women that withstood a personally pejorative evisceration by the media”

Ain’t I a woman?

A found poem from Sojourner Truth’s most famous speech, adapted into poetic form by Erlene Stetson..

That man over there say
a woman needs to be helped into carriages
and lifted over ditches
and to have the best place everywhere.
Nobody ever helped me into carriages
or over mud puddles
or gives me a best place. . .

And ain’t I a woman?
Look at me
Look at my arm!
I have plowed and planted
and gathered into barns
and no man could head me. . .
And ain’t I a woman?
I could work as much
and eat as much as a man–
when I could get to it–
and bear the lash as well
and ain’t I a woman?
I have born 13 children
and seen most all sold into slavery
and when I cried out a mother’s grief
none but Jesus heard me. . .
and ain’t I a woman?
that little man in black there say
a woman can’t have as much rights as a man
cause Christ wasn’t a woman
Where did your Christ come from?
From God and a woman!
Man had nothing to do with him!
If the first woman God ever made
was strong enough to turn the world
upside down, all alone
together women ought to be able to turn it
rightside up again.

The War On Women

War on Women is a political term, used to describe Republican Party initiatives in federal and state legislatures that are seen as restricting women’s rights with regard to reproductive rights. Some sources have used the phrase to criticize conservative positions. Additional uses refer to legislative initiatives regarding the following: access to reproductive health services, particularly birth control and abortion services; how violence against women is prosecuted; how rape is defined for purposes of public funding of abortion for rape victims; how workplace discrimination against women is treated; and litigation concerning equal pay for women. The term is often used when targeting policies that reduce or eliminate taxpayer funding for women’s health organizations, like Planned Parenthood. Other areas of concern include public funding and mandatory employer insurance coverage of such matters as contraception and sterilization.

This strategy, the War on Women, was successful at least in the sense that it garnered the support of women by over 10 percentage points. The strategy even got some conservative support, most notably Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski who disputed the criticism from her fellow party members, challenging them to “go home and talk to your wife and your daughters” if they did not think there was a war on women, saying “It makes no sense to make this attack on women.”

The biggest mistake was the try to trivialize the issue, by likening it to “the war on caterpillars” or “left handed Irishmen”. Once again, big mistake. A few weeks ago I attended a dinner. One of the guests asked me “What do you do?”. I responded, he broke out into peals of laughter, pursing his lips as though he were humoring me. Very condescending, since I have been in my chosen profession for more than 15 years and probably make more than 3 times as much as he does as an attorney. Male to female condescension is not a winning strategy.

Instead, spend a few moments in thought and recall the three conservative women who had to withstand a personally pejorative evisceration by the media — Sarah Palin; Christine O’Donnell and Sharron Angle.

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin burst on the scene at the Republican national Convention to be announced as the Vice Presidential running mate for John McCain in 2008. I did not recognize her from , really, anywhere but I recall the camera following her husband through the stands and I asked my daughter Aubrey which show did he star in. To wit she replied that he was the vice presidential nominee’s husband. I decided to take notice at that time. Sarah Palin is a beautiful, smart (perhaps not in the polished way that bespeaks an Ivy League pedigree but bright nonetheless) and a traditionalist.

What should have been a celebration of this great feat ended up being one of the greatest stories of the lynching of a woman in modern history — unless we experience more Orwellian revisions. Conservative, liberal and in-between feasted upon her as though she were a piece of meat thrown into a pool of piranhas. No tactic was too low, too vulgar, too base.

Nary a word from the feminists when reporters wondered out loud if “she is neglecting her children”; the advocates for the handicapped never once questioned the cruelty of the attacks on her child Trig who was born with Down’s Syndrome; And the advocates for children yucked it up with a late night funny-man as he stated “One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game,”during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.” The funnyman said that he did not mean to make “funny” of her 14 year old daughter — he was referring to her 17 year old daughter. Oh, I guess that was OK…. That night, the rape of a 14 or 17 year old girl was just alright—– a good funny and not to mention —- real cool.

The final part of the deconstruction of Sarah came with the decision to brand her as “stupid”. Saturday Night Live was relentless in their pursuit with the continual lampooning and Tina Fey turned her marginal comedic talents into a career boon with the farsical renditions of Palin . Then there was Andrew Sullivan, whose hate infested blogs regarding the Palins became a regular on the internet. He was obsessed, the Palins gave him a tick he could not lick.

Finally, the “right” women finished her off. Websites against Palin authored by women, and many women who felt superior pretty much finished her off. Two women in New York felt so strongly that Palin was the wrong choice they created a blog called “Women Against Sarah Palin” and are using the site to post emails from women who write in from all over the country about why they think Palin is the wrong choice for Vice President and the wrong choice for American women. Within a week they received 80,000 responses. At least 3 a minute. Women never need a man to hold them back, they will do it themselves.

What is interesting to me is that I watch the left who have members lying, cheating, saying outlandish things, and so forth — they stick together. We, on the right are waiting for Jesus Christ or Mary anything less goes under the bus.


Christine O’Donnell

“Christine Therese O’Donnell is an American Tea Party politician, former Republican Party candidate, and long-time conservative activist best known for her stances against abortion, homosexuality, pre-marital sex, and masturbation. She is also known for being an outspoken proponent of fiscal responsibility and, accordingly, a critic of reckless government spending and huge federal deficits. With strong financial support from the Tea Party movement, she defeated nine-term U.S. Representative and former governor Michael Castle in Delaware’s September 2010 Republican primary for the U.S. Senate. In doing so, O’Donnell caused an uproar among the political establishment. She lost the November 2010 U.S. Senate election in Delaware, to Democrat Chris Coons by a margin of 57% to 40%”

I put this excerpt in quotations because I got it from the Wikipedia. She became branded with the word “dumb”, one article called her “sexually repressed”, “crazy”, and “spooky”. And finally,

Sharron Angle

“Sharron Elaine Angle is an American politician who served as a Republican member of the Nevada Assembly from 1999 to 2007. She ran unsuccessfully as the 2010 Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate seat in Nevada, garnering 45 percent of the vote. “

One of the controversies that surrounded her was her assertion that the constitution does not mandate the “separation of church and state”. Well, that is true, the phrase “separation of church and state” does not actually appear anywhere in the Constitution.

“The exact term is an offshoot of the phrase, “wall of separation between church and state”, as written in Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. In that letter, referencing the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, Jefferson writes: “Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.” Jefferson reflected his frequent speaking theme that the government is not to interfere with religion.”

So….. was she right? I think so… But it did not stop there, after showing her support for the 2nd Amendment and maybe suggesting something further, Congressman Jim Clyburn said in January 2011 that “Sharron Angle’s endorsement of ‘Second Amendment remedies’ in her losing Nevada campaign against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid contributed to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.”

Angle was branded the “idiot” from “crazytown”. What is the end result of women, especially conservative women speaking out, running for office, or stepping out of their comfort zone —– unless you remain a part of the “establishment”, watch out — there will be swords on the left and clubs on from the establishment on the right. Believe it…

So….. Ain’t these women? And did they not go through a real beat down war? Chilling thought.



The Republican Coffee Corner with Angela

“The Liberal Strategy: Pulverize the Republicans” by Angela Graham-West


by The Republican Coffee Corner with Angela West

This morning I woke up and decided to check out any news that might be in the forefront. I knew that the Pope is resigning by the end of the month — seems sort of strange, almost like he just gave two weeks’ notice …. After skipping through the regular crime and weather stories, I ran into two articles — one in the Huffington Post called “ Republicans Need to Deal With Their Racism Problem” written by some music writer, pretty vacuous stuff and then “The Ignorance Caucus” written by Paul Krugman.

Paul Krugman, an American economist, is well known and well respected. He tends to slant much of his writing towards his political views, but so be it. Very seldom do you find a truly “objective” writer of any stripe since any good piece is the sum total of the facts presented from the prism of the author. The piece goes on to declare the inherent intellectual superiority of the liberal and decry the intelligence and “critical thinking skills” of the Republican mind. In fact here is an excerpt:

For these days his party dislikes the whole idea of applying critical thinking and evidence to policy questions. And no, that’s not a caricature: Last year the Texas G.O.P. explicitly condemned efforts to teach “critical thinking skills,” because, it said, such efforts “have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.”…

So…….. Some GOP members in Texas decide that they do not want to teach “critical thinking skills” and this thought translates itself to Krugman painting the ENTIRE GOP in say, New Jersey or Illinois as having a low intellect level. By the way, who is this representative of ALL GOP members who happens to live in Texas? And HOW can we get in touch with him? Recall the problem that the New York Times writers have had in the past with fictitious interviews…… can anyone say Jayson Blair?

Nevertheless, Krugman finishes with his this little gem:

The truth is that America’s partisan divide runs much deeper than even pessimists are usually willing to admit; the parties aren’t just divided on values and policy views, they’re divided over epistemology. One side believes, at least in principle, in letting its policy views be shaped by facts; the other believes in suppressing the facts if they contradict its fixed beliefs.

For my supposedly “ignorant” GOP friends, he is implying that we have a difference of opinion regarding what knowledge is and how it is acquired. Read: the Democrats are high functioning creatures who allow their policy views to be shaped by facts. The GOP who are low functioning creatures tend to be guided by feeling — if something does not go along with our “feeling” then we suppress it. Now does this type of thinking describe any of my friends on this page?

To one degree or another, we all tend to be closed minded. We shut out those queues and ideas that do not conform to our beliefs. Our perception becomes our reality. J. J. and Eleanor Gibsons’ work on perception argues that understanding human behavior first involves careful analysis of the information available to any perceiving organism. This applies to the human organism — NOT JUST LIBERALS. In other words, Krugman’s OPINION regarding the cognitive abilities of ALL Republicans is not worth the amount of ink or air space that it occupies. … It is way too cool now to beat up on the Republicans and we take it.

I hope the American taxpayers realize it cost them $1.6M for President Obama to fly to Nevada for a campaign rally speech. I think he could have stayed in DC, with his beloved teleprompters, and saved us the money.

Actually, he could have saved us another speech and just let the legislative branch do their work. Gotta give it to the President, he knows how to seize the day and make himself the focus of attention. It just killed him to see a bipartisan group of eight US Senators have the stage.


Allen West “Yesterday the ghost of immigration reform past reared its ugly head”


by Allen West – Facebook Status

“Yesterday the ghost of immigration reform past reared its ugly head. In 1986 we went down this exact same road with amnesty for 2-3 million illegal immigrants. I heard the word “contingent” used often. Furthermore, the Senate Judiciary Cmte is headed by Bernie Sanders of Vermont.The final decision on immigration could mean a permanent dependent class and a permanent electoral block for the next generation. One can only estimate where political loyalties would lie, and imagine what happens to job opportunities for those here in America legally.”

Weekly Update from Allen West – Next Generation TV

NGTV Weekly Update

Introducing The Next Gen Data Card
Use it to fight for the future with facts

Each week as part of our Next Generation Initiative, I will assess the current issues to inspire your thought and engagement, and to call you to action for our future generations. This week, the big news is new beginnings in Washington.

We embarked upon the second term of President Barack Hussein Obama and opened the 113th Congress. These early days will provide a clear vision as to legislative priorities and the direction this country will take under these elected officials.To put the monumental challenges ahead of them into perspective, I have the pleasure to introduce you to the Next Generation Data Card.

Click here to go to the download and print the Next Generation Data Card

As a member of Congress, I had our staff develop this simple card of several economic indicators to give constituents an objective, comparative analysis. Now Next Generation is updating this card to show you where America was in January 2009 and where we are currently.

We will update the card monthly and challenge you to carry it for reference and discussion. Of course, if I am at an event and ask people to show me the data card, those without it will have to do 20 push-ups, so you better download your copy of the card here right now!

The bottom line of the card is that facts do not lie. Crafty people can say anything in a speech, but we will arm you with the truth so you can stand up for our future.

Empty Inaugural Words
Speaking of crafty speeches, on Monday I read the transcript of President Obama’s inaugural address. I have found it better to read the words and not sit there staring at the TV just to be enraptured.As we prepare to launch our “Next Generation Today” show on Feb. 4, the critical theme will be “the next 100 days for the Next Generation,” and I read Obama’s words through that filter. I was struck by the fact that he did not talk about our growing debt and government spending.If there is one glaring item that threatens our children’s future, it is our national debt. The president only mentioned our deficit once, and that was when Obama paid lip service to making “the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit.”Now, I am not a rocket scientist, but back in 2010 when he signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the law was estimated to cost the American people $940 billion. That cost later skyrocketed to $1.7 trillion, and several new taxes from the law just hit all Americans this January. (Notice I said “all Americans.”)

Our deficits in the era of Obama have been $1.42 trillion, $1.3 trillion, $1.29 trillion and $1.1 trillion. We are on track for a fifth straight year of $1 trillion-plus deficits – the difference between revenue flowing into the government and government spending. We are now borrowing 46 cents on every dollar spent.

In his inaugural address, Obama did not mention how we will curtail spending.

On the other hand, average gasoline prices have gone from $1.84 in January 2009 to $3.30 in January 2013, and Obama said in his address, “We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and grandchildren.”

When Moms cannot afford to take their kids to soccer or lacrosse practice because of rising energy costs, that is a betrayal.

As a young fella tanking up my Dad’s car on our assigned day during the Saudi oil embargo, I remember being told that government would create a Department of Energy to make us energy independent. Yeah, exactly what I’m thinking.

We sent $2 billion to Brazil for offshore oil exploration; we wasted taxpayer dollars on green energy boondoggles (Solyndra); we are sending jobs overseas for wind blades and solar panels, and anyone remember the Keystone XL oil pipeline?

We are betraying our children.

On the defense front, Obama said “a decade of war is now ending” and “we will defend our people and uphold our values through strength of arms.” But recent and current events suggest otherwise.

Last September we lost a U.S. ambassador, a State Department official and two former Navy SEALS in Benghazi, Libya. We just learned that radical Islamic terrorists murdered three Americans of the 10 they took hostage at a gas plant in Algeria. No one asked radical Islamists about an end to fighting, and sadly, they do get a vote.

“Strength of arms” – those Obama inaugural words are in contrast to the threat of sequestered defense spending, which would so promote a decline in American military strength that Obama-appointed Defense Secretary Leon Panetta spoke against it.

We need a loyal opposition that will make a stand in the political arena, and the GOP must not continue to acquiesce under perceived media pressure.

Permission to Speak Freely
Speaking of which, I do find reprehensible the comments of CBS news political director John Dickerson about going for the throat and pulverizing the Republican Party. This after Obama stated in his inaugural speech, “We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.”I thought we were supposed to have a more civil discourse. Imagine if a conservative news director had said the same thing!Or even worse, look at the backlash golfer Phil Mickelson took for stating exactly what many are thinking – that they may have to make “drastic changes” because of rising taxes. Furthermore, doesn’t Mickelson have the unalienable right to free speech and to petition the government for a redress of grievances?The next generation requires an objective media that reports the facts and gives them the freedom to articulate their pain under the weight of expansive government intrusion and ineffective policies.

So we shall be watching these next 100 days for policies that promote the economic, energy and national security interests for our next generation. When we do not see effective policies, we will engage you and challenge you to stand up for the future.

As a great American, Gene Kranz once stated, “failure is not an option.”

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West
