Gotta keep their story alive±:

The Battling Boys of Benghazi

We’re the Battling Boys of Benghazi,
no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
defending the country we loved so well.
It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
led them to safety and stood at the gate.
Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
but we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
so we fought and we fought and we fought till we died.
We gave our all for our Uncle Sam
but Barack Obama didn’t give a damn
just two dead SEALs who carried the load
no thanks to us – we were just “bumps in the road.”


Congressman Allen West’s Weekly Wrap Up, Legislative Updates and Highlights of the Week

Dear Patriots,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and all Americans. It is time to prepare our weekly update for dissemination.

L’Shanah Tovah Tikatevu. I pray the Jewish community here in South Florida and across the globe enjoyed a wonderful and Happy Rosh Hashanah.

A week ago at this time, I was supposed to be visiting our men and women in combat theatre serving in Afghanistan.  However, for safety reasons, the trip for myself and other Members of Congress was canceled, with some blaming the escalation of violence in the Middle East on a YouTube video that upset the Islamic world.

My trip to Afghanistan was canceled, but it was not because of a Youtube video.  A series of coordinated terrorist attacks across the Islamic world and the fallout of protests are the result of America’s failed foreign policy.

The Obama Administration has lied and continues to lie to the American people concerning the situation in Libya and the Middle East.  The “public” story is that this was a spontaneous action related to a video. Further evidence has proven that Ansar al Sharia, a radical Islamic terrorist group aligned with Al Qaeda in the Maghreb, is responsible for the attack on our Consulate.  Even more disturbing is that Abu Sufian, the leader of Ansar al Sharia, was released from GITMO in 2007 after heavy political pressure.

The policy of appeasement communicated by President Obama’s speeches and visits to Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt evidenced an American foreign policy weakness destined to fail.  It is telling that even at this time, President Obama has yet to visit our closest ally in the region, Israel.

The legacy of the Arab Spring that President Obama celebrates is sadly not any different from the legacy of President Jimmy Carter in Iran when the results of his action created a leadership void, eventually filled by radical Islamists.

Americans have been led to believe that killing Osama bin Laden is an example of sound foreign policy. That absurdity would be like President Franklin D. Roosevelt claiming credit for Operation Vengeance in 1943.  Operation Vengeance is the assault that led to the successful elimination of Japanese Admiral Yamamoto by an Army Air Corps fighter pilot with the support of Naval intelligence. The killing of Admiral Yamamoto did not end World War II, nor was it called foreign policy.  Operation Vengeance was a target of opportunity developed through intelligence, where the United States was able to break Japanese code and eventually ascertain Admiral Yamamoto’s flight schedule.

The Obama administration fails to understand the three levels of war — strategic, operational, and tactical — and instead rests its laurels on the tactical success of killing Osama bin Laden.

Vice President Joe Biden stated that when it comes to our foreign and economic policy,  the bumper sticker should read, “GM is alive. Osama is dead.”  True, but so is our Ambassador to Libya.

Since the 11th anniversary of 9/11, countless United States Embassies and Consulates have been attacked and ransacked, a United States Ambassador killed and possibly tortured, along with three other American citizens killed.  A United States Marine fighter squadron Commander has lost his life, six Harrier jets destroyed and two damaged, and a continuous string of “green on blue” attacks plague the peacekeeping efforts in Afghanistan.

The Obama Administration’s response has been:

–  $70,000 “apology” advertising campaign in Pakistan funded by United States taxpayers.

– Statement from the office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff reiterating Islamic sensitivity training.

– A spot on David Letterman and parties with Jay-Z and Beyonce.

We wonder why we are being attacked.  I’ve said it countless times before and I’ll say it again. This President continues to show weakness with his lack of response. It’s no surprise President Jimmy Carter has been advocating for President Obama to follow his lead during the 444-day Iranian hostage crisis and “do nothing”, claiming it sometimes takes “more courage” to take that stance. From someone who spent 22 years in the Army and many years in the Middle East, I can tell you this line of thinking is insidious!

This is President Obama’s America as of September 2012:  failed economic policy, failed energy policy (unless you count Solyndra as a success), a failed foreign policy and failed national security. And he wants Americans to trust him???

I will say that “ending” the War in Iraq was not a foreign policy success. Iran is currently flying its Revolutionary Guards forces into Syria over Iraqi airspace. There are only two ways to end a war: you win or you lose. You cannot simply pack up and go home and declare success.

Political rhetoric is no substitute for sound foreign policy and strategic national security decision-making.

Americans are living through a really bad nightmare, and it’s time to wake up.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Legislative Update:

– Stopping President Obama’s War on Coal—On Friday, September 21, the United States House of Representatives passed the Stop the War on Coal Act, H.R. 3409, by a vote of 233-175, I VOTED YES. The bill would rein in the Obama Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) costly job-killing regulations, protect jobs, keep energy affordable, as well as prevent the premature closure of coal plants to ensure the lights stay on. The bill would seek to limit surface mining regulations and would require regulatory analysis and a cumulative cost analysis of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules.  The bill would also allow states to regulate coal ash and would move the authority for setting Clean Water Act water quality standards from the EPA to the states.

– Blocking the Obama Administration’s Welfare Work Waivers—On Thursday, September 20, the United States House of Representatives passed H.J. Res. 118,“Providing for congressional disapproval of the Administration’s July 12, 2012 waiver of welfare work requirements” by a vote of 250-164.  I VOTED YES. The bill would express Congress’s disapproval of the Obama Administration’s regulatory effort that will waive the work requirements of the 1996 welfare reform law, hold the Obama Administration accountable, and preserve critical reforms that have helped lift millions of American families out of poverty.

Elect Adam Hasner – Florida Congressional District 22 – Here are his stands on the issues

If elected to the United States Congress, I pledge the following commitments:

I will stop Washington’s unsustainable spending. Job creation and real economic growth begins with stopping Washington from spending money Americans do not have. I will oppose earmark spending and will vote to ban it.

I will oppose tax increases. Taxes are too high already. I will oppose any attempt to raise taxes and work instead to institute real tax reforms that will make our tax code simpler, flatter and fairer.

I will fight for a Balanced Budget Amendment. As Founding National Co-Chair of Pass The Balanced Budget Amendment, I have been fighting for a balanced budget amendment for two years. I will continue the fight in Washington for a real Balanced Budget Amendment, one with teeth and spending caps to attack the debt.

I will repeal Obamacare. I will work to defund and repeal Obamacare, and I will work to replace it with a healthcare system that puts patients in control of their own health care choices.

I will work to make America more energy independent. I have been a leader for more domestic energy exploration for oil and natural gas as well as nuclear, coal, and renewable sources of energy. Lessening America’s dependence on foreign sources of energy is a natural security issue. We must do it without job-killing policies like cap and trade or carbon taxes.

I will only serve two terms, and will fight for Congressional term limits of 12 years. Career politicians from both parties are making it impossible to make the changes that need to be made in Washington. I will fight for term limits.

I will insist on National Security Based on Peace through Strength. America faces serious threats from radical Islam and a nuclear Iran. I will not let political correctness get in the way of confronting our national security threats at home or abroad. I will make sure our men and women in uniform have the best training, equipment, and support for the fight, and the services and care they deserve when they return home.

I will oppose all taxpayer funding of abortion. I am pro-life. I will vote to defend life, and to ensure that not one penny of taxpayer money goes toward funding abortions.

I will continue to stand up for the Second Amendment. I am proud of the A+ rating I earned from the National Rifle Association during my time in the legislature, and I will continue to defend each individual’s Second Amendment rights in the United States Senate.

I will vote to secure our borders and oppose amnesty and amnesty-like proposals. In addition to being an economic issue, making sure our laws are followed and that we have an immigration system that works is a national security and a moral issue.

This pledge is the foundation of our campaign and the principles on which we’ll build a platform of solutions in the coming weeks and months.

I look forward to having a conversation with all Floridians about the ideas we need to solve our nation’s challenges.

Congressman Allen West’s Move is anything but cowardice: by Kingsley Guy

by Kingsley Guy for Sun Sentinel

Because of redistricting, U.S. Rep. Allen West from District 22 will be heading northward to run in a more Republican-friendly District 18. I, for one, will be sorry to see him go.

Unlike a lot of politicians, West doesn’t equivocate or dance around issues. His sharp, conservative views make him an icon of the right. But he’s a demon to the left, which castigates him for being a tea party lackey.

That description doesn’t fit. West even earned the wrath of the tea party last summer when he voted to raise the national debt ceiling. It was a tough call, but the right one, and the vote showed West won’t be intimidated by either opponents or supposed allies.

West is a tough-minded politician who has developed a national reputation for straight-talk through television appearances and YouTube videos, but he’s also a superb “retail” politician who can work a room with the best of them. Democrats expecting to hate West have even been known after meeting him for the first time to walk away with newfound respect.


Video – Newt Now from YouTube


I found this on a Teabook post and thought it did a good job of showing the most recent debate excerpts and conversations with Newt Gingrich on the issues we face as a nation. ALL posts are opinion and NOT endorsements and none of them have been endorsed by Congressman Allen West.

Rep Allen West STILL does not respond enough to Nezar Hamze CAIR-FL Leader so attacks continue

From BNI (Bare Naked Islam) Nezar Hamze, director of CAIR-FL has tried to engage Allen West with in-his-face confrontations and mail campaigns to which West has responded, but apparently not to Hamze’s liking. Having been denied membership on the GOP Executive Committee of Broward County, Hamze is now threatening to start a Muslim Republican club (Gee that should attract about 2 or 3 members)

This is one of the repeated attempts to rattle Congressman Allen West – Allen West stands firm and does not waiver in his stand against Islam

Taken from NPR Article found here – NPR ARTICLE -(There’s no member of the Republican freshman class in Congress more outspoken than Florida Rep. Allen West. Since he was elected last year, West has become a strong voice on Capitol Hill for fiscal restraint, socially conservative values — and responding to the threat posed by Islamic extremists.

Hamze says it was with that purpose that he went to one of West’s town halls in February. It was captured on video and posted to YouTube (see below) by a West supporter.

Hamze brought with him a Quran. In an interview recently, he said he wanted to ask West to explain a statement he’d made at a conference while serving on a panel discussing national security. “A Marine … stood up and asked him, ‘Why are these people twisting their religion, or perverting their religion, to attack America — as an excuse to attack America?’ West said that the people that are attacking America are not twisting their religion. They’re doing exactly what the Quran is telling them to do,” Hamze says.

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.”
