Allen West “Obama’s dangerous lie to the Jewish community”

Barack Obama, Benjamin Netanyahu

Written by Allen West

Americans are single-mindedly focused on one particular Obama lie: “If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it period.” This purposeful, blatant deceit of the American people, on top of past lies (such as a crude video being the impetus for the spontaneous demonstration resulting in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya) has eroded any trust, confidence, and credibility for Barack Obama.

However, there is another lie which has far greater implications for American credibility: “Iran will not get nuclear weapons.”

According to the follow-on reports from the negotiations of the UN P5+1 and Iran in Geneva, President Obama, through his characterless mouthpiece, Secretary of State John Kerry, was willing to end all sanctions against the rogue Islamic regime for minuscule concessions.

Allen West Weekly Wrap Up Oct. 27, 2013 via allenbwest.com

ABW 2

What an incredible inaugural week for allenbwest.com. It was certainly better than that for healthcare.gov, and we want to thank you all for sharing your time with us. We’ll continue to provide you with concise assessments of critical issues affecting our economy, sports and culture, national security, and foreign policy.

This week we’ve seen reversals from Democrats on the individual mandate of Obamacare, which unfairly taxes Americans. That could be the good news.

There were some interesting “this day in history” anniversaries such as the first parachute jump in 1797, the tragic loss of 250 Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers at the hands of Iran in Beirut in 1983, and the birth of the United Nations in 1945.

We were unfortunately reminded that the Democrat party is still comfortable with the despicable imagery and symbology of the Ku Klux Klan, courtesy of Florida Rep. Alan Grayson. Speaking of Florida, 300,000 Floridians became the latest victims of Obamacare when Florida Blue dropped their health insurance coverage. And we still see an unemployment situation which becomes more dire with each passing month. We can only restore this Republic by educating the citizenry. That is our goal, because the uninformed may turn us all into subjects.

Steadfast and Loyal

Diane West: Does globalism equal patriotism?

Diane WestBy Diana West

Instead of writing a column opposing the nomination of Samantha Power to become U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, I appeared on a panel in Washington, D.C., to state the case. My co-panelists were some illustrious Americans, including organizer Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, retired Army Lt. Col. Allen West, former U.N. Ambassador Jose Sorzano, retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, and Morton Klein of the Zionist Organization of America.

C-SPAN covered the news conference. So did Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, who wrote: “Their technique was straightforward: They would impugn the patriotism of the Irish-born nominee. … I asked the speakers whether they really believed that she was an enemy of the United States or whether they merely disagreed with her politics.”

Milbank’s technique was clear, too. He would use push-button terms to fry the mental circuits of the reader: How hateful conservatives are for impugning the patriotism of anyone they disagree with!

When Milbank did venture into substance, he misrepresented it. For example, regarding a statement Samantha Power made in 2002 — a horrendous time of Palestinian intifada terrorism against civilians in Israel — Milbank forgot to mention that besides calling for “billions” in U.S, aid for “a new state of Palestine,” Power also called for “a mammoth (U.S.) protection force” to protect Palestinians from Israelis.

Rep. Allen West “Looking back on last week, and forward over the fiscal cliff…”

pol_west49__01__360x240

by Congressman Allen West on Sunday, December 2, 2012 (Facebook page)

While I enjoyed watching Georgia and Alabama battle it out for victory in the SEC Championship, the great contest in which our nation is engaged to ensure wealth expansion and economic growth remains part of the American way of life was never far from my mind.It seems this Administration has made its position very clear. Despite all historical economic evidence, the President and his Administration refuse to acknowledge that greater revenues are indeed derived from lower tax rates, and fewer deductions and exemptions rather than the opposite.

What’s more, the President appears to believe his policies have not contributed in any way to the economic mess in which we find ourselves – which is even more astounding considering his Administration is now demanding complete and permanent authority to increase the debt limit. Where will this end?

Sadly, this brings to mind another president, Mohammed Morsi, who just recently decided he also needed much broader powers, and had the Egyptian constitution rewritten in 16 hours in the middle of the night. Only weeks ago, the Obama Administration was praising Mr. Morsi.

Meanwhile, back at the “fiscal cliff,” President Obama wants $1.6 trillion in more taxes, $50 billion more in stimulus spending, continued extension of the 99-week unemployment benefits – to the tune of about $30 billion per year — maintaining the payroll tax cut, which has led to Social Security running a deficit  and which even the AARP opposes, and has said we can talk about spending cuts later. And when exactly would that be?

I wonder how many Americans have heard the simple maxim: “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”

I wonder how many Americans truly believe President Obama has any intention to rectify our fiscal issues? We are indeed heading to that 53% growth in the federal government and more expansion of the welfare-state, which is exactly what his Fiscal Year 2013 budget laid out.

There is no plan to reduce our debt or deficit, just more spending. America is truly moving away from an opportunity society to a dependency society. That means more votes for those in power who will provide, as de Tocqueville stated, the largesse from the public treasury.

I want to share with you three quotes that I certainly wish this Administration would read:

1. “The first object of taxation is to secure revenue. When the taxation of large incomes is approached with this view, the problem is to find a rate which will produce the largest returns. Experience does not show that the higher rate produces the larger revenue…

I agree perfectly with those who wish to relieve the small taxpayer by getting the largest possible contribution from the people with large incomes. But if the rates on the large incomes are so high that they disappear, the small taxpayer will be left to bear the entire burden”.  – President Calvin Coolidge…who lowered tax rates and increased revenue.

2. “Taxation may be so high as to defeat its object, that given sufficient time to gather the fruits, a reduction of taxation will run a better chance, than an increase, of balancing the budget”.  – John Maynard Keynes, 1933

3. “It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now. Efforts to avoid tax liabilities make certain types of less productive activity more profitable than other more valuable undertakings and this inhibits our growth and efficiency. The purpose of cutting taxes is to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy”.  –President John F Kennedy, during his January 1963 address to Congress

It was George Santayana who stated in the 1920s, “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Sadly, I fear we are on a bullet train to repeat the economic failures of the past.

In closing, I want to put the events at the United Nations this week in some sort of context. Since 9-11 2012, has anyone paid attention to the deteriorating situation in the Middle East? It is a Middle East where, according to President Obama’s foreign policy, we are “pivoting away.”

Since November, we have seen Israel come under horrific attack from Hamas in Gaza, who are being supplied from Iran. We have had Egypt go 180 degrees away from any semblance of an “Arab Spring” of democracy to a radical Islamist regime led by the Muslim Brotherhood. Lastly, by a vote of 138-9, with 41 abstentions (which are in effect tacit yes votes), we now have a “Palestinian” non-member observer state recognized by the United Nations — coming after Israel was rocketed with not a peep of protest from Mahmoud Abbas.

Palestine is a territory which historically had nothing to do with Arab people. In fact, it was Roman Emperor Hadrian who renamed the region Palestinia from Judea to punish the Jews after their defeat in the second Jewish insurrection against Rome. The original word Palestinia comes from the root word Philistia and the ancient Philistines were originally Greek.

After decades of good propaganda and a lack of historical understanding on the part of many, the United Nations has created something which has no historical basis. What is most disturbing is a terrorist organization, which is attacking a sovereign State, has now been awarded legitimacy.

Are any of these events a result of the President beginning his second term or is it all just a strange coincidence?

 

Congressman Allen West Weekly Wrap Up, Legislative Lowdown, Highlights in the District 12/2/12

AngAll

When Congressman Allen West was first elected 2 years ago he committed to his constituents that he would send them a detailed report each week as to what he was doing in his service for them, what the issues were that he was encountering and what progress he was making in addressing those issues. NO other Congressional Representative in the country does this. Even though Congressman West’s service as a Congressional Representative will end in January, even though NO other Congressional Representative bothers with such a report to those that they serve, Congressman West continues, steadfast and loyal, to meet his commitment to his constituents by generating this weekly wrap up. This man’s service in Congress will be sorely missed. Here is is weekly report for the week of 12-2-2012. – Larry Snowden

Legislative Update:

– This Week

STEM Jobs Act of 2012—On Friday, the United States House of Representatives passed legislation to provide up to 55,000 green cards a year to new green card programs for foreign graduates of U.S. universities with advanced science, technology, engineering, or mathematics( STEM) degrees. H.R. 6429, which was approved by a vote of 245-139, I VOTED YES. This bill would create a new green card category for immigrants who have received STEM doctorates from U.S. universities. The bill would require immigrants to meet the certain eligibility requirements in order to apply for a STEM green card and require universities to meet certain requirements to be eligible institutions. The bill would also create a new green card category for immigrants who have received STEM master’s degrees from U.S. universities. The bill would allow foreign students to receive student visas to attend college in STEM fields without having to demonstrate that they have no desire to stay permanently in the U.S. Several changes were made to the bill as introduced, including expanding the “V” nonimmigrant visa program to allow the spouses and minor children of permanent residents to wait in the U.S. (without work authorization) for green cards to become available.

 – Next Week

The United States House of Representatives will meet next week on Monday, December 3, for legislative business. The House will consider a number of bills under a suspension of the rules throughout the week.

Rep. Allen West Statement on UN General Assembly Vote on Palestinian Statehood

254398_506903512653935_1890754365_n

(WASHINGTON)—Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today regarding the United Nations resolution upgrading the Palestinians’ status to a nonmember observer state at the United Nations, approved by a more than two-thirds majority of the 193-member world body — a vote of 138 to 9:

“Slowly but surely, hostile nations are tightening the noose around the sovereign State of Israel. Only those who are not students of history, Islam or the Muslim Brotherhood will be surprised by these actions.

It is naive to think this vote is solely about human rights or a homeland for Palestinian people. This vote is yet another step towards delegitimizing Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state with Jerusalem as its undivided capital.

When the cease-fire brokered by the Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egyptian government was announced, Hamas and the Palestinians celebrated it as a victory over Israel, not as a step towards peace.

The true intentions of nations such as Iran and Syria are one thing, but it is deeply disappointing when countries such as Austria, France, Italy, Norway and Spain vote in lockstep. It is unfortunate that so many in our own country, including those in this current administration, continue to ignore the reality.”

Congressman Allen West Weekly Wrap And Highlights from the District

Dear Patriots,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and indeed all Americans, it is time to prepare our weekly update for dissemination. It has been a whirlwind of a week and truly a changing direction for our America.

As you all are aware, this is an official Congressional report and therefore we cannot discuss campaign related issues. Quite sure you are well aware of the current situation regarding our election.

There have been several items of concern this week which I believe are indicators of what a second term for this administration will look like.

At this moment I am watching the breaking news of the resignation of CIA Director General David Petraeus. As many of you may know this resignation is occurring the Friday before hearings are supposedly to be held next week on the Benghazi incident. General Petraeus, from a national security perspective, did the honorable thing by resignation, however I hope his leaving will not hinder getting to the truth on Benghazi. This also follows with the interestingly timely relief and retirement of USAFRICOM Commander General Carter Ham.

And that leads me to the second point, regarding Mark Basseley Youssef, the Coptic Christian immigrant from Egypt. He is the individual arrested as the culprit who unleashed Muslim anger because of a silly anti-Islam video. Not since Helen of Troy, “the face that launched a thousand ships,” have we seen one individual responsible for inciting more emotional outrage as reflected in the 11th anniversary of the September 11th Islamic terrorist attacks. He will now be serving one year for a parole violation.

Could it be that Mr. Youseef is being punished, as President Obama stated at his United Nations Assembly address, because “the future does not belong to those who insult the prophet of Islam?”

Which leads me to the next point… not only should President Obama’s statement cause us concern. We should also be concerned about the Organization of Islamic Countries who supported United Nation Resolution 1618, which would make any deemed offensive comment toward Islam an international crime.

On that note, a related United Nations issue is that within 24 hours of President Obama’s reelection, the United States signed on with another 156 other countries to the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, while Russia voted against it. This treaty which would require the United States Senate approval of a treaty which will have certain adverse effects upon our Constitutional Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Following along with more international occurrences, am I the only one who finds it odd that only days before the national elections, Iran fired upon a United States drone? The drone was operating in open airspace when two Iranian jets fired upon it. Now, why is it that we heard nothing about this until after the election? Kind of like us not knowing about a Russian attack submarine operating undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for some two months. Is this the future of our national security?

Back years ago when I was a teenager living during the administration of President Jimmy Carter, I recall the Saudi oil embargo crisis, which resulted in fuel rationing, on odd/even days. History has an impeccable way of repeating itself – just ask the folks up in New Jersey and New York. Amazing that we can send aid halfway around the globe to Indonesia and Japan, yet Americans are freezing and destitute right here, due to the incompetence of government agency relief efforts.

But you just do not hear a peep from the mainstream media on this stuff.

Lastly, I think you all now realize that the “fiscal cliff” is indeed real. It has been something that I have been discussing for quite some time and stock market behavior following the reelection of President Obama is just an indicator. The “sell-off” which has seen the Dow Jones Industrial Average drop some 430 points, 3.3%, in three days should cause concern. We are seeing individuals who recognize the fact that capital gains and dividends taxes will rise from 15% to 25% and 43.4% respectively. Money is moving away from stocks and towards bonds. The predictable economic growth of America will be horribly affected.

The misguided belief that raising taxes will solve the problem will only bring about another recession.

The President’s Fiscal Year 2013 budget called for $1.9 trillion in new taxes, but the debt grows from $16 trillion to $20 trillion in four years and to $26 trillion in ten years. Deficits never go below $900 billion and the President’s budgets never balance… but you do get a 53% increase in the growth of the federal government.

If we do not expand our tax base, lower rates, eliminate exemptions, and provide tax and monetary policy certainty we are truly heading off that cliff like Thelma and Louise.

We are dangerously close to the tipping point.

In closing, 10 November, 2012 is the 237th birthday of the greatest fighting force known to mankind, the United States Marine Corps — Semper Fidelis.

And Sunday is Veterans Day. Welcome home brothers and sisters, and God bless those of us who have taken that oath of office to serve, sacrifice, and commit to this great nation –the longest running Constitutional Republic the world has ever known, these United States of America.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Highlights of the Week:

– Monday, 5 Nov: attended the Crossmatch Company BBQ luncheon, their company develops biometric devices for use by our men and women on the 21st Century Battlefield. Discussed with them current issues of economic security and national security and how it will affect their business.

– Thursday, 8 Nov: participated and spoke at the Sixth Annual Pompano Beach High School Army ROTC Fallen Heroes Ceremony. Seeing the young men and women in High School Junior ROTC uniform, just as I was back in 1975 does my heart well.

– Friday, 9 Nov: attended and was the keynote speaker for the Martin County High School Air Force  Junior ROTC Veteran’s Day program. I spoke of the three aspects of being a veteran: service, sacrifice, and commitment. We must ensure to pass on a greater and more exceptional America to these future leaders and warriors.

– Saturday, 10 Nov: will speak at the National Navy SEAL Museum Muster in Ft. Pierce. What a special privilege to stand among SEAL Medal of Honor winners. Will attend the Stuart Air Show to see the power of American aviation ingenuity and expertise. Happy 237th birthday to the finest fighting force the world has ever known, the United States Marine Corps.

– Sunday, 11 Nov: will attend the Boynton Veteran’s Council Veteran’s Day ceremony; participate in the West Palm Beach Veteran’s Day Parade by riding my motorcycle with the Nam Knights Motorcycle Club; attend and speak at the US Navy SEAL Muster reception at the South Florida Shooting Club in Palm City.

Statement from Rep Allen West “West Welcomes Israeli Ambassador, Condemns UNESCO”

(WASHINGTON)— Congressman Allen West (FL-22) released this statement today after Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren spoke to the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce during it’s Washington Fly-In:

“Today I had the tremendous honor to speak with Ambassador Oren at the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce Fly-In concerning the challenges that both Israel and the United States face in the Middle East. Not only do the Ambassador and I share a deep commitment to Israel, but we both come from families dedicated to military service – both of our fathers served in World War II, and both Ambassador Oren and I are former paratroopers.  I asked Ambassador Oren today to let the Israeli people know I remain committed to the peace and security of the State of Israel – the United States’ greatest ally in the Middle East.

Yesterday’s vote by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to grant full membership to the Palestinian Authority displays a total disregard for the peace process which Israel has been firmly committed to. I strongly urge President Barack Obama to comply with long-standing American law that prohibits any American taxpayer dollars from going to any United Nations agency if the Palestinian Authority is granted membership. Anything less than a full withholding of all funds to UNESCO by the Obama Administration is simply unacceptable.”

Congressman Allen West “I give you my thoughts in my weekly wrap up”

Dear Patriot,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and all Americans, it is time again for our weekly update.  It is hard to believe that almost nine months have gone by.

I want to begin with the issue of the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state in the United Nations. Because of a short-sighted speech given last year by our own President at the United Nations, we saw an emboldened Mahmoud Abbas submit his request for statehood. A request for the creation of something that even in its name is a misnomer.

As I have often stated, the word Palestine has nothing to do with Arabs. It has everything to do with a region that was conquered by the Romans who suppressed the Jewish rebellion between 68-73 AD and by decree of Emperor Hadrian, who changed the region’s name from Judea to Palestina.

Hadrian and the Romans took the word Palestina from the root word, Phillistia, referring to the original Philistines, who were in fact Greek.
Therefore, the true “Palestinians” are the Jewish people, hence why I believe the first step to a peace process solution in the Middle East is recognition of the modern-day Jewish State of Israel. The second step is a complete repudiation of radical Islamic terrorism and dismantling of terrorist groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Al Aqsa and Al Quds Brigades, Hezbollah, and others which threaten Israel.

If these critical conditions cannot be met, and if Mahmoud Abbas cannot agree to this, then his attempts are nothing more than a charade. The audacity of Abbas to attempt to circumvent the negotiation process, and the applause he received at the United Nations is very concerning to me.

The United States must adamantly oppose and submit its veto vote in the United Nations Security Council and unequivocally assert that we shall not support this measure until the “Palestinian” Authority evidences itself as a credible peace partner.

If the UN continues its support of Abbas without the above measures taking place, then the United States House of Representatives should withdraw the support of the American taxpayer dollars to both the United Nations and the Palestinian Authority. In times of economic hardship, fiscal responsibility means that we are the guardians and stewards of American taxpayer dollars.

I also want to confront the absurdity of Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad having a platform on our soil upon which to spew his vile rhetoric. There must come a time when Ahmadinejad is no longer granted a visa into the United States. How dare he stand in New York City and blame 9-11 on our America!

Lastly, I want to discuss the Continuing Resolution (CR) the House of Representatives passed this week. It is vital that we as Conservative Republicans learn to and demonstrate our ability to govern, something the liberal progressives seem to be  incapable of doing. We passed a measure which would keep our Federal Government functioning while we complete the remaining six appropriations bills.  There are a total of 12 bills and the United States Senate has only taken up one.

Part of the CR, ensures the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is funded in order to alleviate the suffering of Americans from the recent natural disaster which struck our nation. To be fiscally responsible, House Republicans found spending offsets to ensure we pay attention to our deficit issue. That offset came from a Department of Energy government loan program for “green” vehicles.
The Federal Government does not need to inject itself into the automobile industry, or any private sector industry, as it has done with the mortgage industry and now the healthcare industry.

I call upon Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to stop playing the games of political brinksmanship and pass the House legislation. We do not need to repeatedly portray the United States Congress as a dysfunctional body politic. I ask you, Senator Reid, to stop trying to maneuver and manipulate a failing political agenda at the expense of the American people and  “Pass the House Continuing Resolution, now!”

In closing, never forget that leadership is about taking action, it is different from managing. Our America needs principled and pragmatic leaders who have a deep passion for this country, the American people and their advancement and success.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen
