Allen West “Going in behind enemy lines”

os-orlando-sentinel-todays-buzz-allen-west-for-001

Last week Bill O’Reilly asked me if I would be interested in leading the Tea Party. I certainly don’t believe one needs to be officially “anointed” to be recognized as a leader and voice for conservative principles. But I will gladly take that message from coast to coast.

Today I will hit the airways and travel to Utah and the Chicago area. It will be my first time ever in the state of Utah and I will be there to support a fantastic young conservative Congressional candidate, Mayor Mia Love. Mayor Love truly represents the future for the Republican party, and for our resurgent conservative movement. Hers is a story of American exceptionalism and the opportunity society for which so many have fallen for in our Republic.

Of course being a black conservative means she has the ire of the progressive socialists. If you are in the Salt Lake City area, come out to the Salt Lake Community College campus and spend some time with Mayor Love and myself.

I will then travel over to the Chicago area, yep, going in behind enemy lines, to speak Thursday evening at an event sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation and the Northwestern University College Republicans. The event will be held at Harris Hall and the topic will be “Should the U.S. use military action to spread freedom?” The event is open to the public so please come on out. National Military Strategy relating to our national security objectives is vital and it’s an issue that doesn’t get enough attention.

Finally, I pray everyone enjoyed a very memorable and special Veterans Day. Mine certainly was. I am so very humbled to have announced on Veterans Day the first book I have ever written, Guardian of the Republic: An American Ronin’s Journey to Faith, Family and FreedomYou can pre-order a copy here.

Guardian

The title truly symbolizes the purpose for all of us who have donned the military uniform of the United States of America. Next year, I look forward to touring and signing many copies for my fellow countrymen and patriots.

Allen West “Mayor Mia Love is about to become a household name.” @MiaBLove

You’ve probably never heard of her before, but you will soon…because Mayor Mia Love is about to become a household name.

Last summer she gave one of the most heart-felt and inspiring speeches I’ve heard at the Republican Convention and gave liberal Congressman Jim Matheson the fight of his political life in Utah’s 4th Congressional district. She lost by less than 800 votes, but fortunately for us, she’s up for a rematch.

Since announcing her candidacy in May, Mia has put Matheson and the liberal left on notice. She’s in the district every day meeting voters, participating in events, and holding Matheson accountable for voting in lockstep with Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. But Pelosi’s radical fundraising machine is preparing to launch an all-out assault against her.

Will you stand with me today to build the arsenal the Guardian Fund will use to fight back on behalf of candidates like Mia Love? Please follow this link to donate $25, $50, $100, or more today.

Mia Love is the quintessential Guardian Fund candidate. The daughter of Haitian immigrants, Mia knows what it takes to work hard and make ends meet—and she’s living proof the American Dream still exists.

Despite coming to the United States with just a few dollars to their name, Mia’s parents never took a free handout and instilled this principle in their daughter. Today Mia is an unwavering advocate for limited government, fiscal sanity, and personal responsibility—three things desperately missing in Washington.

We need steadfast conservatives, like Mia, fighting for us in Washington and that’s why I created the Guardian Fund. Please stand with me and make sure Mia and others like her win next November by donating $25, $50, $100, or more today.

Thank you in advance for your support.

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

Friday, September 13, 2013 – Political Potpourri by Jacquie Kubin

WASHINGTON, September 13, 2013 – While he no longer holds elected office, Colonel Allen West’s impact on the national political scene continues to grow.

The Allen West Guardian Fund is announcing its first endorsements for the 2014 election cycle, including Congressman Tom Cotton, Arkansas Senate; Mia Love, Utah – 4, who was also endorsed in 2012; Dan Bongino, MD – 6; and E.W. Jackson, the GOP Nominee for Lt. Governor, Virginia.

The fund plans to endorse a total of 14 persons, leaving ten more endorsements to be announced.

“Here at home, those who can benefit most from conservative policies – namely minorities – are under-represented in leadership,” Col. West says from his Florida office. “As the demographics of this nation change, we must ensure conservative minority voices are not sidelined or silenced.”

As a nation we are experiencing a significant divide as we watch the economic, political and foreign policies of the Obama administration reaching conclusions.

“Elections have consequences – and we’re certainly seeing the effects of some serial bad decisions in this country,” Col. West says. “The 2014 elections represent an opportunity for Americans to self-correct. The question I hope voters will ask themselves is, do we really want to continue on this path? With the workforce participation rate at an all-time low, persistent double-digit unemployment in the black community and increasing threats abroad, I can’t believe there are many folks who think we’d be better off with more of the same.”

The ability to control the decisions made in Washington lies with the voters, only it requires informed and engaged voters.

“We’ve got to elect principled leaders who will protect and preserve our liberties and our nation,” Col. West says.

The Allen West Guardian Fund’s mission is to support minority and veteran conservative candidates; candidates reflecting the mores of Colonel West.

Obviously America agrees with Colonel West as the group has raised nearly $1.9 million so far in 2013. The Federal limit for direct contributions is $5,000.00 for primary plus $5,000.00 making the maximum endorsement for any candidate $10,000.00.

The leadership PAC Colonel West established during the 2012 election cycle endorsed 13 candidates, 11 of which have prior military service.

“When you see what’s happening in this world, and the dangerous and frankly, deadly results of poor strategic military decisions from our elected leaders, it’s quite obvious we need more people with military experience in Washington,” Col. West says. “Forty years ago over 70% of the House and Senate had served in uniform. That figure is under 20% now, and only 16 members of the House have served since Sept. 11, 2001.  Is it any wonder our enemies and allies alike are doubting our resolve?”

2013 Endorsement recipients will be honored at a Capitol Hill Club breakfast event on Thursday, October 10.  Colonel Allen West and Lt. General William G. “Jerry” Boykin will be attending, and speaking at this event.

Dr.Angela Graham-West “I have lost nothing by evolving into a conservative and neither will you” The Journey from left to right

AW and AW 2013

Posted by  on September 8, 2013 – Dr. Angela Graham-West for Palm Beach County Tea Party

The Journey from Left to Right….

When Allen and I go out to parties, galas, and the like, people speak to him about conservative thinking. That is a given. He is deeply patriotic, deeply involved with the history of the country and very knowledgeable.

But….. after they speak with him, the conversation invariably turns to me. And…. it starts like this….”WHEN DID you BECOME conservative….” A girlfriend of mine who I have known since I was a child told me “its written all over your face…. people can tell..” OK, should I change my lipstick? (smile)

I was the quintessential student, loved school, fell in love with the university life — both in Europe and the US. It was intellectually stimulating and exciting. I truly understand when my daughter gives us 4 hours here and there during the school year. She is me — albeit with the “Conservative Chick” tee-shirt.

The University meant that I could be myself. The lover of documentaries, exhibitions and plays. I remember when Allen and I got married, the officer’s wives club had their meeting to welcome me. That was like fitting a round peg (me) into a square hole (them). You see, one faces a big penalty for non-conformance in such groups. I knew how to sew well because my grandmother owned a business which involved making high quality dresses for the top US stores so she taught me. BUT the officer’s wives were into “crafts” so I tried it. Let me tell you that cross stitch is not only boring, it is tedious. very….. One of the other Ph.D. students came from Utah where she told me that her mother was a whiz at embroidery and cross stitch. Her mother sent an 89 percent completed a piece and I finished the trim in front of my peers in the OWC. I still have the piece. It says “Officers’ Wives — the toughest job in the military”. It had all of the flourishes, my friend’s mother is a genious and I was accepted at least for a short while.

At that time — late 80′s to the 90′s the left pretty much solidified their dominance in University thought and hires. They replaced all of the stuffy professors in suits with conservative ways with “cool professors” who sat on the lawns, smoked weed and had many neurotic ticks. But they were creative and exciting. They also did not have preconceived notions about women, minorities, gays and so forth. Believe me, I was told by one “conservative” professor that “women can not write nor do arithmetic — much less BLACK women.” He was able to grade any paper I wrote, no matter how long, in a matter of 3 – 5 minutes. He gave me a “B” and wrote a note that he was being “generous”. Another, was the chair of one of the large departments, he was known to hire only attractive girls with his department budget, I felt “happy” that I was one of the chosen. Then, I came down with the flu, showed up to work looking pretty run down for a week and he jokingly said —- “If you don’t get your act together and stop dragging in here, I going to replace you.” And so on and so forth ….The “Stinkin’ Thinkin’” crew had to GO.
