Florida CD22 NO Lois Frankel “Here’s a few reason’s why” – Re-Elect Allen West

Lois Frankel quotes don’t exactly make her sound so great as a candidate? Frankel, you’ll recall, is the former West Palm Beach Mayor and one of two Democrats running for the honor of taking on Allen West (the other is CPA Patrick Murphy — aka “no not that” Patrick Murphy). WHO?

Anyhow, this is what I’m talking about:

Since joining the race, Frankel has refused to say whether she would have supported “Obamacare” telling WFLX when asked in an interview, “I can’t answer that question right now because as a Congresswoman you have to take the people’s pulse.” She also demurred when given the chance to offer support for the stimulus bill the President pushed through Congress telling WPTV television viewers, “there were a number of stimulus bills… instead of looking back look forward.”

And perhaps most frustrating to anti-war Democrats was her interview with liberal south Florida radio host Nicole Sandler where she refused to say whether we should withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan or whether she supported US involvement in Libya telling the host, “I have the luxury of not having to weigh in right now” and “the world is so complicated and so chaotic… it’s hard to keep up each day with various rioting revolutions throughout the region.”

Congressman Allen West will support competitive grant requests of merit on behalf of municipalities…

When confronted about the appeals for federal money he publicly opposed, Congressman West’s office said that the funding requests were consistent with the congressman’s stated positions. Referring to the article found here: The Daily Beast 

“Congressman West will support competitive grant requests of merit on behalf of municipalities and local organizations from his congressional district,” spokeswoman Angela Sachitano said in a written statement. Sachitano also said that West consistently votes to reduce the size of government and she reaffirmed West’s frequent statement that “job creation comes from the private sector and not from spending more of the American taxpayers’ money.”

“If funded by the Department of Energy, this innovative program will benefit residents, small commercial establishments, the local economy, and environment for many years to come,” West and his colleagues wrote. “We are proud to support solar power as a smart choice for commercial and residential property owners, as well as the development of new and innovative strategies to reduce market barriers and costs.”

U.S. needs jobs, Congressman Allen West a voice of reason, and other reader letters

Finish reading the complete story at: Sun Sentinel

September 30, 2011

We want jobs. Get behind the program. I don’t care how much the government has to spend. We want money put into the economy, and the best way is to create jobs. We need the teachers and first responders. We need to repair our infrastructure and our schools.

In the spirit of shared responsibility, the wealthy and businesses must share the burden. Seventy percent of the U.S. population thinks the wealthy should be taxed. They were the cause of the economic mess, and they should bail us out like we bailed them out.

OK, so you want to be an obstructionist. It’s good for politics. But it is not good for the country, it’s not patriotic, and you were voted in to represent your constituents. So, go ahead and obstruct, but when it comes time for the election, your constituents will remember.

Sandra Safran, Boynton Beach

 

Allen West a voice of reason on Muslim extremism

Congressman Allen West continues to state accurately the threat of violence arising from the Islamic ideology. He does so despite the continued disingenuous carping of the uninformed, America-is-always-wrong critics.

Coexisting peacefully with Islam is the goal, and it will be fully achievable when Muslims rid themselves of hate for religions other than theirs and when the leaders of that faith decry the teachings of achievement by any means, including through terrorism and violence. It is time that the threat is recognized and not concealed, says West.

Some years ago, Pope Benedict XVI noted that a philosopher had once described the Islamic faith as a religion of the sword. His comments resulted in the burning of two churches and the slaying of a nun, along with threats against the pope’s life.

After the 9/11 assault by Muslims on the World Trade Center and the homicide of some 3,000 innocent Americans, we witnessed video of jubilant Muslim parents being joined by their young children in street demonstrations. Muslim leaders were virtually silent in their condemnation of this behavior.

It is essential that Muslim leaders denounce all acts of terrorism by their Muslim brothers who constitute the extremist element.

In a recent poll, it was reported that extremist elements exist in many American Muslim communities.

The extent of this extremism is of concern to other members of Congress, including Rep. Peter King of New York, whose committee is investigating the extent of this home-grown terrorism.

Congressman West, a highly respected former Army lieutenant colonel who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, is a strong, articulate figure in the House of Representatives, and he is supported by Americans both in and outside of his South Florida district. We are fortunate to have his voice in Congress.

DNC, DCCC, Moveon.org, unions and others are TRYING to defeat Congressman Allen West

 

This Friday is a critical fundraising deadline for our campaign. It marks the end of the third quarter, and we need to raise as much as possible so we may file a strong report with the Federal Election Commission in Washington.

I can tell you he has been working very hard to meet with as many supporters as possible. But it’s just not possible to personally visit with everyone. Unlike his opponents, Allen actually has to serve the people of his district and continue all of the crucial work in Congress. He can’t spend every waking hour asking for help.

That’s why our online outreach plays such a large role in our campaign — and why this email is so important.

I hope you will take just one minute to make an online contribution of $25 or more to help our campaign. We count on every supporter at times like this and your financial backing helps us continue to run a lean and effective campaign.

You already know that Democrat groups like the DNC, DCCC, moveon.org, unions and others are doing everything they can to defeat Allen. It infuriates them that Allen speaks his mind and is so effective at recruiting independent and unaffiliated voters to his side. His secret: he actually tells the truth and stands by his convictions.

As we all know Allen doesn’t mince words or say what is “politically correct”. And while you might not agree with everything he says, you know where he stands. That’s the main reason people from all over Florida and America are coming out to support his re-election to Congress.

It’s also the reason I hope you will reaffirm your support for Congressman West by making a special end-of-quarter contribution of $25 or more to help our campaign right now. I know first-hand how much he appreciates each and every supporter who steps up to help. And I can tell you every gift makes a difference.

Thanks again for all you do for our campaign. It means so much to everyone working here at campaign headquarters.

Sincerely,
Catherine Faulkner
Finance Director
Allen West For Congress

P.S. Remember, on Friday at midnight we close the books on our third quarter. I’d like to tell Allen you were a critical part of a successful fundraising effort. Please help me do that by making a special end-of-quarter contribution of $25 or more. Thanks again.

Interview by Loop 21 Talks With Black Tea Partier Rep. Allen West

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE ENTIRE INTERVIEW AT: LOOP 21
West fears a youth ‘uprising’ is on the way

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) first came on our radar when he became one of the few African Americans to openly claim Tea Party affiliation. He rode that affiliation into office as part of the 2010 Republican takeover of the House in Congress. Any illusions that he would serve quietly or start going mainstream like his fellow Floridian Tea Partier Sen. Marco Rubio was erased when West said that he thought he was Harriet Tubman. The Congressman with the salt-and-pepper, low-top box fade haircut tells African Americans that the Democratic Party that they vote so consistently with is a “plantation” they need to escape from and has threatened to escape the Congressional Black Caucus. West’s escape has yet to happen though as Loop 21 contributor John Wilson caught up with the Florida Tea Bagger at the Congressional Black Caucus’ Annual Legislative Conference over the weekend where he gave us a quick interview:

Loop 21: Do you regret lashing out at Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL)?

Rep. West: No. Why would I? Democrats pretty much have free reign to come after conservatives and the one time we stand up for ourselves and say something back, we’re lambasted for it? Nope. I don’t regret it at all.

Loop 21: You mentioned at the Republicans for Black Empowerment event how poorly the black community is faring in this recession. Do you have a plan to assist the black community? And, if so, would Republicans support it?

Rep. West: Well, I think you can accomplish revitalization in urban communities that have been devastated by unemployment, lack of education, and a liberal powerbase that doesn’t care about them and seeks to undermine their empowerment with failing social programs. And you do it by utilizing the tax code in a way to drive investors to focus capital and resources to these areas. It would cost nothing for the government upfront. If not, you’re going to see  an uprising among these young people similar to what you’ve seen in Philadelphia and other areas.
