@AllenWest “We have elected officials who don’t want to get to the truth and they continue to promulgate this cover-up”

Allen WEst

Former Congressman Allen West (R-FL) spoke at a Justice for Benghazi Rally on the first anniversary of the attacks on our diplomatic facility in Libya and the 12th anniversary of the attacks on New York and Washington, D.C. by Islamic terrorists.

The attacks are ongoing and relentless. Yesterday, Taliban forces attacked a U.S. Embassy in Harat, Afghanistan, killing two and injuring scores of others.

At the rally, attended by William J. Murray, Chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition and the Government Is Not God Political Action Committee,West told the audience: “We, as a people, have to stand up, because we cannot settle for this and come to believe the new normal is that an ambassador can call up and say ‘We’re under attack’ and have elected officials do nothing about it.”

West accused Obama of lacking a sense of moral obligation about the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and others at the Libyan compound who “ran to the sound of the guns, while others on that night ran to bed.”

According to West: “… we have elected officials who don’t want to get to the truth and they continue to promulgate this cover-up with very complicit media.”

NGTV Weekly Update
‘That Dawg Don’t Hunt’ In America” – A Southern saying that echoes through the news

Down South we have this little saying to articulate in our simple vernacular that something does not make sense. Let me give you a few examples:

See, to schedule a soccer game on the third Saturday in October in Neyland Stadium, well, that dawg don’t hunt. For a fella to wear a Speedo on a bass boat on Lake Eufala, well, that dawg don’t hunt. To try and run a drag race at Churchill Downs, well, that dawg don’t hunt.For a woman to wear a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes on the back of a Harley on her way to a biker bar, well, that dawg don’t hunt. Or for some kids to be sitting in a Southern Baptist church and start complaining that they’re ready to go home, well, that dawg certainly don’t hunt.This past week as I thought about the news, I just mused, well, that dawg don’t hunt.Consider the Obama administration announcing, or pronouncing, that there would be no more White House tours because of forced “budget cuts.”

The last time I checked, we live in a constitutional republic with a representative democracy to elect our officials. In a republic, the people are served and, as President Abraham Lincoln stated at Gettysburg, “the government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

That means the White House belongs to the American people, not the person who at any given time, by way of election, has the privilege to live there with our consent. The White House and the Capitol are not Versailles, and this is not a monarchy.

So when in the same week we find out Americans are giving $250 million to President Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt, well, that dawg don’t hunt! Those are hard-earned taxpayer dollars, and doggone, why the heck are we sending money to a terrorist organization while telling Americans their house is closed due to “budget cuts.”

Freedom of sedition is not a right
Or how about Louis Farrakhan recently urging Chicago gangs to protect an Islamic state in America? Yes, Farrakhan said he was sent by Allah to end Western civilization. At the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion, he implored all African Americans to “contribute to a united treasury and create a separate nation that would be protected by Chicago gangs.”Or how about Mustafa Carroll, executive local CAIR director, speaking at Muslim Capitol Day in Austin Texas. “If we are practicing Muslims,” he said, “we are above the law of the land.”In America, we believe in freedom of speech and freedom of religion, but we have one Country and one Constitution. Advocating against either is not a freedom but rather sedition, and frankly, that dawg don’t hunt.
Justifiable outrage over Benghazi and drones
My former House colleague Frank Wolf of Virginia contacted me about another issue this week. He has sent letters of inquiry about the 30 survivors from the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and he has sources telling him about seven severely wounded Americans who had been recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.We reported that story on “Next Generation Today. Some people, like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will say, “What difference does it make?” It makes a lot of difference ma’am. We don’t leave our men and women behind, and we certainly do not hide our wounded like lepers.And by the way Mrs. Clinton, when you traipse out in a few years wanting to be president, well, that dawg don’t hunt. We will not forget what happened on your watch: When the call from Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi came at 2 a.m., you did not answer and four Americans died on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.I was equally outraged to watch U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, while testifying before the Senate, refuse to respond simply to questions about the constitutionality of our government using drones against American citizens on American soil. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and other concerned senators took a principled stand against such drone attacks by engaging in an old-fashioned filibuster this week, which is a powerful way of saying, well, that dawg don’t hunt.


Congressman Allen West Statement Condemning the Attacks on the Sovereign Soil of our Nation

(WASHINGTON) –Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released the following statement this morning upon learning of the attack on the United States Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans:

“Less than 24 hours after our nation remembered the heinous attacks of September 11, 2001, Americans find their sovereign soil attacked again as more American lives are lost at the hands of intolerant, barbaric, radical Muslims.

United States Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and several embassy staff were murdered late yesterday when suspected religious extremists stormed the United States Consulate in Benghazi.  This morning, my condolences and prayers go out to the families of the victims.

Americans need to question whether the deaths of these innocent patriots could have been avoided. The Obama Administration touted the Arab Spring as an awakening of freedom, which we now see is a nightmare of Islamism.

Even more concerning, is the initial response to these attacks last night from the embassy officials of the Obama Administration was to apologize for a Facebook video that supposedly hurt Muslim feelings.  President Obama’s policy of appeasement towards the Islamic world has manifested itself into a specter of unconscionable hatred.

How anyone can believe this President is strong on national security and foreign policy is beyond my comprehension.  President Obama has clearly surpassed former President Jimmy Carter and his actions during the Iranian Embassy crisis as the weakest and most ineffective person to ever occupy the White House.”

Rep. Allen West’s Statement on the 11th Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks

(WASHINGTON)— Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today on the 11th anniversary of the September 11th attacks:

“On this day, we remember the unconscionable attack by the Islamic terrorist group Al Qaeda on the United States of America. This attack resulted in the loss of thousands of men and women, and American lives were changed forever.

Even though 11 years have passed, we all remember where we were when the planes crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in western Pennsylvania. The attack resulted in the loss of mothers, fathers, children, teachers, business people, firefighters, police officers, members of our armed forces, and many more victims who were doing nothing more than going to work or boarding an airplane.

On that September morning, America was a vulnerable target. Our adversaries believed we were a “sleeping giant” that had drifted back to sleep. Instead, this atrocity awoke the “giant” and resulted in a reaction from our country against those who wished to tread upon us.

Today, thanks to the brave warriors of the American Armed Forces and our Allies, Osama Bin Laden is dead, Al Qaeda has been diminished in Afghanistan and much of the Middle East and America has yet to see another attack of this magnitude on American soil.

Still, even with all of these accomplisments, we cannot become complacent.  Since 9/11, several attacks have taken the lives of innocent Americans.  The attacks on Fort Hood, Texas, as well as an attack at a recruiting station in Little Rock, Arkansas, and last year’s attacks on Americans serving overseas in Germany, in addition to numerous attempts here and overseas are evidence a radical, hateful, determined enemy still exists and is just as dangerous as ever.

We must be evermore vigilant and resolute to crush this enemy and prevent its resurgence and fulfillment of its global aspirations. Because of this enemy, America must continue to fund its military and support its Armed Forces to the fullest extent.  The lives of all Americans depend on it.”
