Allen West The US Army’s simple creed says “This We’ll Defend” Happy Birthday US Army

945653_10151959590896729_1175253854_n

by Allen West via Facebook

Today is Flag Day and I hope everyone takes time to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and remind ourselves of the greatness represented by this simple symbol of liberty and freedom. However, our flag wouldn’t have such a grand history if not for something else we celebrate today: the 238th birthday of the United States Army. The US Army’s simple creed says “This We’ll Defend” so how appropriate that we recognize the flag and those who take the oath to support and defend it – on the same day. From the day the Minutemen answered the call to Lexington and Concord, to those who answer the call today to deployments worldwide, the American flag has been that herald of liberty, not oppression. Army men and women leave the warmth and shelter of their homes not as conquerors, but as liberators. I’m often asked what title do I prefer, Congressman or Colonel? Well, I seek to be a good Christian, husband, and Daddy, but I shall always prefer the title American soldier — a title I share with my Dad and nephew. Happy Birthday, Army Strong!

Allen West Weekly Newsletter 5/24/13 via Next Generation TV “Moral Courage And Conscience”

AWF2
Moral Courage And Conscience – We see too much of one and not enough of the other

There just never seems to be a dearth of topics for reflection in this newsletter. The themes for this week: moral courage and conscience.

But first, all of us here at PJ Media, PJTV and Next Generation.TV send our heartfelt condolences to the people of Moore, Okla., which was devastated by a tornado early this week. The storm killed at least 24 people, including nine children inside a school, injured dozens more and leveled entire neighborhoods.

My first duty station in the U.S. Army was at Fort Sill just south of Moore, so we feel a special bond with those of you in that community. Angela, Aubrey, Austen, Lin and I send up prayers to our heavenly Father that you will be consoled in this time of heavy emotional stress and despair. We also ask that God welcome your loved ones into His loving arms, where you all shall be with them again one day.

Humbled to be a considered a hero
It has been a busy travel week for this ole paratrooper. It was great to be back in Georgia and address the Republican convention there. To have the distinct honor of standing before the delegates of the Virginia GOP convention in Richmond also will be a moment I will never forget.

After those events, I flew back to Los Angeles to attend the American Freedom Alliance’s Heroes of Conscience awards banquet. It was truly humbling to receive the 2013 “Heroes of Conscience” award from this organization because the alliance seeks to promote the principles and values that strengthen western civilization. Its president, Avi Davis, is an ardent warrior for liberty, freedom and the free market.

Sadly, Davis told the audience that the group’s tax-exempt status has been revoked. The tornado that hit Moore, Okla., demonstrates nature’s power to destroy lives. But the news about AFA demonstrates that the man-caused disaster from government’s misuse of power can be far more destructive to our great constitutional republic.

Virginian Thomas Jefferson, once stated: “When the people fear the government there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.” I do not believe anyone in the Obama administration is worthy to be recognized as a hero of conscience.

A cast of characters without conscience
As I was flying to Los Angeles on Jet Blue Monday morning, I watched the movie “Black Hawk Down” on FX. If any modern-day combat movie truly features heroism, that is it. The Rangers and Delta operators who fought the 1993 battle of Mogadishu, Somalia, in the movie exemplified heroism for all of us to see.

But as I watched the movie, I recalled how former President Bill Clinton, through then-Defense Secretary Les Aspin, denied support to our men in combat there. That memory made me reflect upon how the other Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, more recently abandoned Americans engaged in combat with Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.

The words of Gen. William Garrison, the U.S. forces commander in Somalia, symbolized the creed of warriors: “No one gets left behind.” I wonder if Gen. Carter Ham issued the same order the night terrorists attacked the U.S. embassy in Benghazi and killed four Americans but heard a different order from Washington?

Howard Dean called Benghazi a laughable joke.

Conscience.

This week we learned that it was not just reporters at the Associated Press targeted by the Obama administration. Fox News Washington correspondent James Rosen and CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson have, too.

The last time I checked, America had “freedom of the press,” but these intimidation tactics are far from displaying the foundations of our constitutional republic. How much deeper does this go?

Conscience.

This week we also learned what many of us with a military background already knew: Maj. Nidal Hasan has been getting pay since he fired upon soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009. Hasan has received some $278,000 and benefits as he awaits trial for his heinous and treasonous action. He shot 45 of our brave soldiers, killing 13 of them, all the while shouting “Allahu Akbar.”

Of course, our government officially declared his terrorist attack as “workplace violence,” so the victims have been denied proper recognition and benefits. Why? Well, according to the U.S. Army, declaring what Hasan did to be a terrorist attack would unfairly impact his trial. He will be paid until proven guilty.

Conscience.

An emboldened enemy
Let it be known that our lack of national conscience in punishing Hasan, and truly in reacting to domestic Islamic terrorism, has emboldened the enemy.

That was sadly obvious again this week when Islamic jihadists attacked and beheaded a British soldier in broad daylight. Even more despicable, disgusting and savage, one of the barbarians with blood-soaked hands made a video describing the attack and promising more of them.

I pray the British have learned a lesson from us here in America and will not call this attack workplace violence, especially because these bastards also were shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they brutally killed the soldier. Have we lost our sense of moral courage and conscience, not just in America but also across Western civilization?

The next generation must have men and women of conscience to ensure that we pass on the blessings of liberty, freedom and democracy – our American birthright. Part of our DNA, the American genome, is threatened.

We need men like the two brave Americans who lost their lives this week, FBI special agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw. They were part of the hostage rescue team in the Critical Incident Response Group and lost their lives during a fast-rope training exercise from a helicopter onto a ship when they plunged into the Atlantic Ocean amid rough weather and ocean conditions.

Lorek is survived by his wife and two daughters, and Shaw is survived by his wife, daughter and son. America will persevere as long as we continue to raise such men and women of conscience, not cowardice.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West

Allen West Guardian Fund: Helping to elect hard charging Minority and Veteran conservatives to Congress

westpac-logo

Dear Friends and Patriots

From the time I took an oath to support and defend our constitution as a young Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, I have committed my life to our nation and its constitutional principles. I feel a duty and an honor to encourage others to follow a similar path.

That’s why we’ve launched the Allen West Guardian Fund.

The Guardian Fund’s sole mission is to build an army of activists to help elect 12 new hard-charging conservatives to the United State Congress — conservatives who are either among the minority and/or veteran communities. This new generation of conservative leaders will stand as guardians of our constitutional republic.

But to successfully complete this mission, we must raise $5 million over the next 20 months!

The Guardian Fund will face its first test in just a few days. March 31st marks our first Federal Election Commission fundraising deadline and our goal is to report $250,000 raised in our first two weeks.

Can I count on your immediate donation to help us reach this goal?

Please follow this link to donate $25, $50, $100 or more to the Guardian Fund today.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be launching our full-scale battle plan for candidate recruitment and messaging. In the past, we’ve endorsed candidates like Captain Tom Cotton (U.S. Army, Arkansas 4th Congressional District), Lieutenant Commander James Bridenstine (U.S. Navy, Oklahoma 1st Congressional District), Mia Love and Vernon Parker. As we set our sights on 2014, we look forward to canvassing the country for the next bright stars of the conservative movement.

With your continued support, the Guardian Fund will help get 12 more outstanding constitutional conservatives elected to Congress. So can we count on your immediate donation of $25, $50, $100 or more to reach our March 31 goal?

Thank you in advance for your support.

Steadfast and loyal,
Allen West
Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)
U.S. Congressman (2011-2013)

P.S. Our initial FEC report is a critical step in establishing the Allen West Guardian Fund as the premiere conservative political action committee. A strong showing for the first quarter will prove to the left and the Republican establishment that we love America too much to sit back and watch them destroy her with radical policies and reckless political gridlock. So can we count on you to help the Guardian Fund raise $250,000 by March 31? Please follow this link right away to donate $25, $50, $100 or more.

The Allen West Guardian Fund was established as a PAC to support conservative military veteran and minority Republicans running for state and federal office, in the same vein as Allen West.

Allen West first took an oath to support and defend our Constitution as a young Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. During his 22 years of service, he was distinguished by numerous commendations and honors for valor, achieving the rank of Lt. Colonel.

In 2010, Colonel West once again reaffirmed that oath when he became the first black Republican from Florida to serve
in the United House Representatives since Reconstruction.

Forty years ago, 72% of House lawmakers and 78% of those in the Senate had served in the armed forces. Veteran representation on Capitol Hill has been steadily declining since the early 1970s, largely a result of the World War II generation steadily leaving public office. But those who have served in the military have a better understanding and a deeper comprehension of issues involving national security, armed services and veteran issues –issues no less important now than they were 40 years ago.

Colonel West was one of only four black Republicans to serve in the United States House of Representatives in nearly a century. In the Senate, there have been only two. As the demographics of the U.S. population shift, it becomes ever more critical to increase representation by not only black, but Hispanic and Asian American leaders as well.

The leadership PAC Colonel West established during the 2012 election cycle with the same mission helped 7 military veteran candidates win their seats in the House of Representatives.

We must ensure conservative leaders are elected who will stand as guardians of our constitutional republic, to restore our nation’s fiscal responsibility and strong national defense, limit the growth of government, unleash the free market and preserve the liberty and sovereignty of its citizens.
