Col. Allen West, former GOP U.S. Congressman from Florida, said at a Thursday morning panel focused on the devastating economic impacts of amnesty that economic policies that displace black youths from jobs—like President Barack Obama’s immigration policies—have led to fads like the “knockout game.”

The panel, hosted by the nonpartisan pro-jobs group  Americans4Work and featuring West and other leaders on immigration policy, focused intensely on how the economy has not gotten better around the country for many groups of Americans, including the black community. They noted how the immigration policies proposed by the president and some in Congress would not help the situation.

West and fellow panelist Professor Jan Ting of Temple University were discussing what they called the “new normal” in America—how Americans are not succeeding independent of the government in record numbers.

“What we don’t want to see happening in the United States of America is this second and third generation of welfare,” West said. ”That becomes the new normal. When you look and see your mother and your father or your grandmother or your aunt or uncle, whoever is raising you, that they were born in Section Eight housing, their kids were in Section Eight housing. And therefore, you think there is no place else for me to go but Section Eight housing.”

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.

I do believe we can restore Camelot, but it will require honorable Knights of the Round-table and someone with a servant’s heart and impeccable visionary character as possessed by King Arthur, and exemplified in the short life of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. He was not a perfect man, but a principled American leader. – Allen B. West

Allen West “President Used Car Salesman, attempting to sell you a lemon”

AWGF3

Finish this sentence:

Since ObamaCare went into effect for individuals on October 1, my health insurance……………

Chances are someone you know has either lost their health care coverage or seen their premiums sky rocket…or maybe it’s happened to you.

So far, 5 million Americans have received notices that they’re being dropped by their insurance company at the end of the year. Millions more will see the cost of their coverage rise exponentially in 2014.

All because of ObamaCare.

Barack Obama lied to the American people about ObamaCare. Plain and simple.

For three years, the president assured us that we would have the option to keep our health plans if we wanted to. But he lied. Friends, that’s not a leader. That’s a used car salesman attempting to sell you a lemon.

America can do better.

Stand with me to elect the next generation of principled conservative leaders by donating $25, $50, $100, or more to the Allen West Guardian Fund today. 

Make no mistake about it: ObamaCare is a disaster and its namesake is to blame. But instead of talking about defunding and repealing it, we need to talk about solutions.

We need forward thinking leaders who will tackle ObamaCare head on and solve the current problems and anticipate additional unforeseen consequences, and the Guardian Fund is taking the lead. We have 14 principled conservative candidates ready to tackle America’s toughest problems.

With our help, these leaders will solve our health care problems, and lead America out of decline and back to greatness.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Steadfast and loyal,

Allen West “We must stay focused and unified “

ABW

This week’s plummeting approval ratings are bad news for President Obama, but they signal bad news for America as well, because we’re stuck with him for three more years.

As more and more information comes out about the disaster that is Obamacare, as well as lapses in national security that have allowed Islamist bomb makers into the US as “refugees,” one really has to ask if all of this is symptomatic of incompetence or something more sinister? As the picture continues to reveal itself, I have trouble believing someone can be that consistently stupid.

At least the truth about Obama and his progressive agenda is emerging, but we must stay focused and unified to ensure we elect principled conservative leaders who will be able to turn this ship around.

Steadfast and Loyal

Too much incompetence from Obama to believe it’s not intentional
Written by Allen West on November 20, 2013

Obama---a-wink-and-a-nod_s640x427

I’m back in DC for three days and therefore did my usual early morning run. As I ran past the Capitol and along the mall, I had an interesting thought. Since everyone has Oprah on the mind right now, remember when she referred to then-Senator Barack Obama as “brilliant”?

While running, I thought about the Obamacare disaster and if President Obama is so brilliant, how do you explain this abject failure? I began to ask myself, is this truly incompetence or possibly intentional — or both?

Obamacare is facing countless issues and the website is not really the most critical of the issues. The whole plan is based upon the flawed premise of forcing more young and healthy into exchanges to actually fund and subsidize, lower income and less healthy Americans.

More and more it appears that Obamacare has an intentional purpose of destabilizing and destroying the insurance market. There seems to be evidence of full knowledge of the adverse effects of millions of Americans being dropped from their individual healthcare plans, even as the President was stating Americans could keep their plans.

It’s business as usual for those protecting Obama and his insane fiscal policies @Theblacksphere

Barack Obama

Remember the good old days, five years ago, before Obama established the “new” normal?

This was a time of white presidents you could criticize without being attacked as a racist. For me and my fellow black conservatives, it was a time when we wouldn’t be called an Uncle Tom because we didn’t support “the brotha.”

I long for the good old days, when gasoline prices passed $3 a gallon and I screamed at President George W. Bush from high Heaven. Gas prices settled below $2 a gallon before Bush left office, and the Left said it was because the Bush family killed Iraqi’s for oil.

Today, gas prices remain at least a dollar above “Bush gas,” and Leftists are spiking the football.

Allen West “Ironic isn’t it, that the 1st African-American president will not attend a historic moment” #Gettysburg150

Gettysburg

On this day we remember a simple yet profound speech delivered by a simple yet iconic American leader. Today is the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address given by our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. Our current president is from the Land of Lincoln – Illinois — but for whatever reason will not be at Gettysburg to pay homage to this moment, a seminal moment in American history — how utterly despicable. I suppose the Organizing for America conference call the evening prior was just too taxing. Ironic isn’t it, that the first African-American president will not attend a historic moment remembering a “new birth of freedom.”

Therefore, since America is lacking a leader to address the nation on this momentous day, I decided to write and share with you all a modern Gettysburg Address:

“Seven score and ten years ago, this great nation stood divided on the fundamental concept of liberty and freedom. There were those who believed they possessed the liberty to withhold the freedom of others and that was defined as their right.

Another part of this great nation believed, as a slave owner had written, that we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and that they are endowed with certain unalienable rights from their Creator thus being life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This nation went to war, a Civil War, to guarantee the promise of the latter, rather than live with the shame of the former. So here amongst the picturesque Pennsylvania hills surrounding Gettysburg two armies met: the Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of the Potomac. And as poetic justice would have it, they met from July 1st to 3rd in 1863 to determine the course of this great land.

The latter prevailed at the end of those three days by way of sheer determination, but both sides displayed uncommon valor and bravery. The defining moment to end the physical bondage of others had come, and freedom was the victor.

We remember the honored dead of Gettysburg – but let us remember all the honored dead who have made the stand against the enemies of freedom: Fascism, Nazism, Japanese imperialism and Communism.

However today, this great country, this longest running Republic the world has ever known is yet again embroiled in a seminal fight for liberty and freedom. The current ideological conflagration in America pits a belief of collective subjugation, by means of the metaphysical bondage of dependency, to the will of government as opposed to the liberty of individuals to determine their way in life – enabling their pursuit of happiness.

Even today the political names of the actors, Democrats and Republicans, remain the same, but only the circumstances have changed. We again are challenged to honor the promise of our founding documents, the Declaration of Independence, and the words of Jefferson, as well as our Constitution.

It is not only this internal struggle against progressive socialism but the external fight against Islamic totalitarianism — both threats to individual liberty and freedom.

Our men and women in uniform are deployed against the latter adversary, but we must all stand as guardians of this Republic against the former. What is at stake? The exact same thing that President Abraham Lincoln championed 150 years ago, “that the government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

May God bless the American legacy of courage displayed at Gettysburg, the Gettysburg address, and this beacon of liberty and freedom, the land of the free because it is the home of the brave. The place we call home, our beloved Constitutional Republic, these United States of America.”
