Allen West “The hypocrisy is glaring”

News Conference Held To Unveil Petition Asking House To Investigate Benghazi Embassy Attack

by Allen West via Facebook

Last night I spoke at an event in Alexandria for EW Jackson, GOP nominee for Lieutenant Governor in Virginia. Jackson’s story is a powerful one, initially raised in poverty in a foster home, juvenile delinquency, reunited with his dad, former Marine, summa cum laude from U Mass, and Harvard law school graduate. However, the story yesterday was an attack against his daughter in POLITICO. The liberal media revels in attacking minority conservatives — prominent Hispanic conservative Senator Ted Cruz experiences the same treatment. However, the party of slavery, secession, segregation, Jim Crow, and the KKK especially enjoys attacking black conservatives, well aided by a highly complicit liberal progressive media and black liberals who remain silent. Consider how, on the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s March on Washington, not a single black conservative was invited to speak. No Justice Clarence Thomas or Senator Tim Scott. However, the man who cancelled the DC school voucher program for deserving black kids, Barack Obama, was celebrated. The hypocrisy is glaring. The continual practice of not just disagreeing but seeking to destroy the lives of those minority conservatives who do not embrace liberal dogma is vile. However, no one can destroy our steadfast resolve. Black conservatives are especially hated by liberals because we so love America.

Congratulations from Allen West to Rep Tim Scott

Congratulations to my colleague, Tim Scott, on his appointment to the Senate. It’s been about 4 decades since there’s been a black GOP member of that chamber – and seems like about that long since it has passed a budget…

Tim Scott, Jennifer Carroll and Allen West lead Romney’s Black Leadership Council

posted by scottpowers on September, 5 2012 10:24 AM

Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, are among three national chairs of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s newly-named “Black Leadership Council.”

“I am proud to have the endorsements of so many leaders in the black community,” Romney stated in a release issued by his campaign. “They know all too well that the economic downturn that has continued to hammer our country has been even more devastating for black Americans. Together, we will work to end that downturn, and we will not rest until all Americans have the jobs they need, the quality education they are owed, and the opportunities they deserve.”

The third chair of the 21-member panel is U.S. Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C. The rest of the members are from out of Florida, with several from Ohio.

In the release, West called Obama “a disappointment.”

Congressman Allen West proudly and humbly serves the constituents of Florida’s 22nd district, encompassing parts of beautiful Broward and Palm Beach Counties along South Florida’s coastline.  Born and raised in the inner city of Atlanta, in the same neighborhood where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached, patriotism is in Congressman West’s blood. His father was a Corporal in the U.S. Army and served in the European theater of operations in WW II, and his mother, the outspoken and lovable “Snooks” West, worked as a civilian on a local Military Installation. “My father was proud of his own service, and believed that serving your country was the greatest of all honors,” West said.  “Both of my parents taught me that it was not necessary to rely on a government handout to achieve my goals. They wanted me to believe in myself and told me that in America, with hard work, all things are possible.”

Tea party has proved its political credentials by Deb Welch

By Deb Welch of Tea Party Hilton Head

n April 2009, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said of the tea party, “It’s not really a grass-roots movement, it’s AstroTurf.”

In November 2010, Pelosi learned that AstroTurf will grow; she lost her position as speaker.

The tea party supported minority candidates, including Tim Scott, Allen West, Marco Rubio, Nikki Haley, Susana Martinez and David Rivera. Regardless, the tea party has been vilified by some Democrats and the liberal media, which like to portray the group as racist, neo-Nazi, gun-toting wackos. Newly elected politicians representing their conservative constituents are called obstructionists.

As voters reverse a socialistic direction this country has taken, those who would eradicate the tea party become angrier. Their best defense is to attack and discredit the movement through insinuation, hyperbole and lies.

For those who value truth, the tea party strongly supports tenets established by the country’s founders: restraint of government is necessary to protect the liberties of the people, and liberty requires personal responsibility; government should function within its means and not saddle future generations with crushing debt; the Constitution governs our nation and safeguards the freedom of its citizens.

Thomas Jefferson said, “Most bad government has grown out of too much government.”

The tea party believes that decisions about our children’s education and our families’ health care should not be dictated by a federal bureaucracy or an elite group of politicians in Washington. Before casting your next vote, learn more about the tea party. Visit and join us.


Head of the Class: The Most Buzzworthy House Freshmen of the 112th Congress

By Eric Ostermeier on September 19, 2011

Allen West, Joe Walsh, Tim Scott, and Sean Duffy are the most covered U.S. House freshmen of 2011


While nearly eight-dozen new members entered the U.S. House of Representatives in January, only a choice few have become media darlings (or fodder) nearly nine months into their first year in office.

In fact, three Republicans have received more than one-third of the coverage of the entire Class of 2010.

And two of these are the GOP’s only black Americans in Congress.

A Smart Politics content analysis of Lexis/Nexis news transcripts from ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and NPR finds that Republican U.S. Representatives Allen West (FL-22), Joe Walsh (IL-08), and Tim Scott (SC-01) have received as much attention as 70 of their freshman colleagues combined.

(Note: Lexis/Nexis transcripts cover most news programs on the cable TV networks, but not all morning and early afternoon programming (e.g. MSNBC)).

Representative West has been interviewed or mentioned in 222 news programs since January of this year – by far the most of the freshman class.

That accounts for 17.9 percent of broadcasts in which any House freshman has been mentioned on these networks.
