Former congressman Allen West wants to make sure that the new GOP majorities in the House and Senate are put to good use, and what better way to do the people’s business than by asking President Obama whether he supports terrorism or freedom?
West, who now heads the conservative National Center for Policy Analysis, spoke to Newsmax host Steve Malzberg yesterday about the need for the Republican-led Congress to expose Obama’s anti-American agenda.
“The most important thing that they have to do is evidence who Barack Obama is,” West said. “We have to put the president in the position to say of whose side are you on: Are you on the side of liberty and freedom or the Islamic terrorists? Are you on the side of the American people and true economic recovery or do you just want to continue to run around the country to talk about free community college tuition?”
Former Florida congressman Allen West, who has previously called for Congress to impeach President Obama, said on Newsmax today that after Obama makes his planned announcement on immigration, Americans will express an “incredible cry” for his impeachment.
When host Steve Malzberg asked him whether Republicans push for impeachment, West responded that the president’s immigration announcement will provoke “an incredible cry from the American people” so that Republicans won’t even “need to talk about it.”
Allen West was a guest on Newsmax's "MidPoint" radio program today where he declared, with the help of some absurdly leading questions from host Ed Berliner, that Republicans were victorious last night because black voters have finally started to realize that everything the Democrats have said for the last half-decade is nothing but a collection of lies.
After Berliner declared that the Democratic strategy in this election amounted to little more than hateful fear-mongering, West said that such tactics should not come as a surprise to anyone who knows anything about history.
"You look at the history of the Democrat Party and it's always been about fear-mongering, intimidation of the voters, coercion," West said. "They're the party of segregation. They're the party of the Ku Klux Klan. They're the party of Jim Crow. They're the party of poll taxes and literacy tests and things of this nature, it's just that they continue to do it except with a different type of tactic in the Twenty-First Century."
When Berliner asked West if black voters are now finally starting to see that "what the Democrats have been telling them for the last fifty or sixty years are just a collection of lies that are finally coming back to haunt them," West readily agreed, saying "I do believe so."
Of course, according to exit polls, nearly 90 percent of African American voters backed Democratic candidates:
In an interview yesterday with conservative talk show host Jesse Lee Peterson, former Republican congressman Allen West reiterated his unsubstantiated claim that undocumented youth are spreading a childhood respiratory disease through America, an increasingly popular talking point in the right-wing media.
West alleged that if researchers ever do find a connection between “dispersed illegal alien children” and enterovirus D68, “then shame on the president for playing politics with the health of our children, that would just be abhorrent.”
When Peterson asked West if he thought the respiratory illness “is a biological warfare,” the former congressman responded that could be a strong possibility: “You know the thing is, biological warfare doesn’t have to be something purposeful, but all of the sudden when you have contagions that are in your environment that are attacking your people, that is an aspect of biological warfare. I believe it was Tom Clancy who wrote a book about weaponizing Ebola so we need to be very aware of these things.”
Former congressman Allen West dedicated a blog post yesterday to railing against “the progressive socialists, Islamo-fascists and secular humanists” who “have all aligned themselves against our Constitutional Republic.” According to West, President Obama intends to “flood the country with illegals,” whom he suggested are to blame for a respiratory disease outbreak among children, despite having no evidence to substantiate his claim.
West is also furious that the federal government will provide $9 million in grants to groups such as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, which are representing many of the Central American unaccompanied minors who have recently fled to the U.S.
As the American Immigration Council points out, a 2008 law requires that minors from non-contiguous nations be “placed into formal immigration court removal proceedings” and the government must also “ensure ‘to the greatest extent practicable’ that unaccompanied children in HHS custody have counsel, as described further below—not only ‘to represent them in legal proceedings,’ but ‘protect them from mistreatment, exploitation, and trafficking.’”
West, however, seems to think this is all a big slight to the troops: “It was just last week that Obama and his pen declared illegal aliens will be allowed to enlist in our military. Quite perplexing at a time when we’re ‘pink slipping’ active duty members. I guess Obama prefers illegals? Where is the $9 million for our own warriors?”
It amazes me how quickly we move from crisis to crisis with the Obama administration. Some time ago, we were glued to the news watching massive numbers of illegal aliens crossing our border, and somehow they’ve all just disappeared. Well, they always say follow the money — and it tells quite a story.
As the Washington Times reports, “The Obama administration will pay $9 million over the next two years to give taxpayer-funded attorneys to some of the illegal immigrant children who have surged across the U.S. border this year, the Health and Human Services Department said Tuesday. About 2,600 immigrants will be able to be represented by lawyers thanks to the funds, which were awarded in two grants to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, according to a notice to be published in the Federal Register on Thursday.”
Wait a minute. It was just last week that Obama and his pen declared illegal aliens will be allowed to enlist in our military. Quite perplexing at a time when we’re “pink slipping” active duty members. I guess Obama prefers illegals? Where is the $9 million for our own warriors?
“To end the surge at the border, the Obama administration should instead focus its efforts on deterring future border crossers and enforcing the laws against illegal entry into the United States,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican. “Without such actions, the flood of people attempting to cross the border illegally will only continue.” The administration’s move marks another effort to circumvent Congress.”
Sorry Chairman Goodlatte, this is exactly what Obama intends to do — flood the country with illegals — after all, that’s what he promised the radical Hispanic groups such as LULAC and La Raza. And this is being done quietly so as to not upset the midterm elections — but alas, we here will continue to expose the nefarious intents of Barack Hussein Obama and his progressive socialist acolytes. Yesterday, we asked the question about the correlation between the mysterious respiratory illness affecting our children and the influx of these illegal alien children. Makes you wonder…
Clearly Obama cares only about his progressive socialist agenda and legacy — not about American children who have dreams.
Ladies and gents, I present to you just another reason to vote out all Democrats that you can in November and remember that the progressive socialists, Islamo-fascists and secular humanists have all aligned themselves against our Constitutional Republic. Time to fight back.
Allen West appeared on “Trunews” yesterday to once again make his case that President Obama is an “Islamist” who is helping ISIS even as he is launching airstrikes against the extremist group.
The former congressman said it’s not just Obama but the whole “Democrat [sic] Party” that is helping radical Islamists: “The Democrat Party is an anti-Semitic party, that’s why you see they’re not standing up for Israel against Hamas. The Democrat Party is aligning itself with Islamists.”
He went on to allege that Democrats are also pushing “open borders” in hopes of “tipping the balance demographically and expanding the welfare nanny state,” before lamenting that Republicans are too scared to criticized them.
Why wouldn’t the Obama administration allow Kurdish Peshmerga members to come to America and receive flight training so they could be given quality helicopter gunships and destroy ISIS? Can anyone explain what the strategy and objective is here in lifting this ban with a nation that is or should be on the terrorist watch list?
Sorry, but I can only explain this one way: Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamist in his foreign policy perspectives and supports their cause. You can go back and listen to his 2009 speech in Cairo, where Muslim Brotherhood associates were seated front and center.
All the circumstantial and anecdotal evidence points to that conclusion. The pivot away from the Middle East seems to be nothing more than an opportunity to enable Islamists and their goals. Anyone supporting this Libyan ban being lifted is indeed an enemy of this state.
The Obama administration’s foreign policy doctrine is self-described as “don’t do stupid s@#t”. But I guess that all depends on what your ultimate goal is.
He told Frank Gaffney yesterday that not only does Obama have an “Islamist perspective and viewpoint,” but so does Hillary Clinton. West alleged that the former secretary of state “never spoke out against” a proposed UN resolution barring religious defamation, which Clinton did in fact denounce as an attack on the freedom of speech.
Former congressman Allen West likes to accuse his opponents of racism, and then turn around and say that anyone who uses terms like “racist” must be wrong since “the term racism means little to nothing.”
It was no surprise, then, to hear West say in an interview last month on the online radio show REEL Talk that liberals have a “Pavlovian” tendency to “go back to the ‘r’ word, the ‘racist’ word because they get a reaction and get people to self-censor and back down.”
He went on to accuse Democrats of only nominating people of color and women to run for office so they can then smear their detractors as bigots: “I think that’s why the left wants to run a female, be it a Hillary Clinton or an Elizabeth Warren, because if you don’t stand up for them then you’re a sexist and a misogynist, and then they’ll run Julián Castro as the first Hispanic president because then you’re a xenophobe, who knows, it just goes on ad nauseum ad infinitum.”

5) Just Another Distraction From—
Last month, former Florida congressman Allen West said that Boko Haram’s kidnappings of hundreds of Nigerian girls were a suspicious distraction from the 2012 Benghazi attack .
But this week, West tweeted that the capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala, the accused perpetrator of the Benghazi attack, was just a way for the Obama administration to distract from non-Benghazi scandals.
“This is the whole wag the dog thing when you have so many other things that are going bad and unfortunately,” such as the crisis in Iraq and illegal immigration, he told Fox News Radio. “[Khattala] ends up being the Obama administration’s fall guy. Just the same as the poor guy who produced the quote-unquote anti-Islamic video.”
As Media Matters points out, West himself has called Khattala “a ringleader of the attack.”
But perhaps West now doesn’t want listeners to pay attention to Khattala because the militant reportedly said the Benghazi attack was retaliation for the notorious anti-Islam video.
4) ‘Diabolical’ Obamacare Will Introduce Totalitarianism
Only in the skewed reality of the Radical Right is the Tea Party made up “mostly of moderates,” but that’s exactly what televangelist Rick Joyner writes in his recent “special bulletin.” Joyner claims that the “moderates” of the Tea Party are the only ones standing up to the Democrats and Republicans (who are also liberal) in fighting the “diabolical legislation” of Obamacare.
Failure to oppose Obamacare, Joyner writes, is treasonous:
Where are the leaders who will stand against these most deadly threats to our freedom? It will not be those who are more concerned about their re-election than keeping their oath to defend the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic. Obamacare is the greatest attack yet to come upon America, our Constitution, and our liberty, and it is coming from within. It is a domestic attack that our elected officials and all other officers swore an oath to protect us from.
Due to Obamacare, the government will soon have “totalitarian control” over America, he adds.
3) ‘Guerrilla Warrior’ Garrow
We haven’t heard much recently from Jim Garrow, the far-right activist who wants Obama to be executed before he beheads (or nukes) Americans. But don’t worry, Garrow is still convinced that President Obama is this close to destroying America.
“His marxist muslim favorings lead to the trashing of the Judeo-Christian roots of America and its blessings from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. To sing the praises of allah and to replace the God that loved us enough to send His own Son to die in our place as a propitiation for our sins, with the death cult of the muslim is to insult the very basis on which the nation is founded,” Garrow writes on Facebook. “The arrogance of this man knows no bounds and will result in the death of this republic unless we stand tall and show him the door after telling him the meaning of ‘no.’”
Will you arm yourself and provision yourself and have a plan for the defense of your families? Will you set aside food and other provisions that will carry you when society crumbles either from within or from wanton attack? Will you commit yourself and your family to the defense of America in the homeland? If you are nodding your head in agreement then I want to challenge you to learn the skills and tactics of the guerrilla warrior.
2) Liberal Jews Want Second Holocaust
Yesterday on NewsMax TV, David Horowitz said that President Obama is intentionally destroying America and Israel, but no one dares to criticize him “because he’s black.”
“Obama is the Manchurian candidate, he represents America’s enemies and he has just cut us off at the knees,” he said. “He’s a traitor, you have to look at Obama as a traitor, he supports the enemy.”
Horowitz also criticized left-leaning, “Jewish enemies of Israel” groups such as J Street, saying “so-called liberalism is now an enabling force in a second Holocaust, genocide.”
1) God Will Punish America For Gay Marriage
During yesterday’s March for Marriage, sponsored by the National Organization for Marriage and several other anti-gay groups, we learned from speaker after speaker that they are there to preach a message of love, including the loving message that God is about to destroy America if the public continues to support marriage equality.
Pennsylvania GOP politician Sam Rohrer told the crowd that same-sex marriage is threatening to “destroy” American society and “invite God’s judgment on the nation”; New York State Sen. Ruben Diaz railed against “Satanic” forces deceiving young people; and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee feared that Americans will soon reject God’s “hand of blessing” and as a result “feel his hand of judgment.”
Monica Crowley of Fox News served as the emcee for a “legislative luncheon” that kicked off the “Road to Majority” conference sponsored by Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition.
The speakers’ lineup – Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Allen West, and John Bolton – promised a butcher shop’s worth of red meat for right-wing activists, and Crowley must have decided she didn’t want to be overshadowed.
She complained that she has both a Marxist president and mayor (New York’s Bill de Blasio) and asserted that “we are in a war…the left is waging a 24/7 war against this country.” She said the fight is not only against leftism and statism, but against “the ideology of control.” Health care reform was not about health care, but about government power and control. “Every day of this presidency has been an impeachable offense – every day.”
Crowley could be unintentionally funny, as when she railed, without any apparent sense of irony, that the left relies on divisiveness and “manufactured” crises, then a few moments later ticked off a set of the right wing’s favorite manufactured crises. Or when she complained that the mainstream media is too partisan, saying that the Obama administration has gotten away with ravaging the Constitution because of “the protection racket of a corrupt and supine press.” Or when she called people like Ralph Reed and Ted Cruz “truth tellers.”
She managed to hit on just about every current right-wing meme, from Benghazi to the IRS, from illegal immigration to “the removal of God from public life.” The Obama administration, she says, is engaged in “the deliberate takedown of America.”
In introducing the “brilliant” and “beautiful” Crowley, Ralph Reed noted that she has recently been named online opinion editor for the Washington Times, a major sponsor of the anti-marriage-equality rally that the National Organization for Marriage was holding at that very moment in front of the US Capitol.
Trunews host Rick Wiles’ interview with former congressman Allen West yesterday was about as crazy as you would expect, riddled with conspiracy theories about how President Obama is a secret Muslim who is supporting an Islamic caliphate.
“Do you think Barack Obama is secretly aiding the rise of an Islamic caliphate?” Wiles asked West.
“I don’t think it is secretly happening, I think that you can look at his actions and he is enabling Islamist forces to be successful in the Middle East,” West replied. “He is aiding the rise of radical Islamism, not just in the Middle East but really across the world.”
West wasn’t done there: “We don’t really know who this President Obama is and I’m not talking about his birth certificate. We don’t know who he is, we don’t know about his college transcripts, we don’t know what he was doing in Pakistan when he was back in college and who funded him to go over to Pakistan.”
When Wiles asked if “Barack Obama is the ultimate jihadist” and “waging jihad against the United States of America,” West argued that the president “has without a doubt sided with Islamists.”
“I believe Barack Obama has an eastern orientation, not a western civilization orientation,” West said.
West tried to explain how Obama is both a supporter of Sunni Muslim terrorists and the Shiite-dominated Iran.
Despite the fact that Saudi Arabia and Iran are regional rivals and practice different forms of Islam, West predicted that the two countries — along with Turkey — will “come together” as part of a new “radical Islamist empire.”
The former congressman also agreed with Wiles’ assertion that Obama “orchestrated an invasion of the United States of America” through immigration and is now “trying to break the Republic,” arguing that Obama is “trying to fundamentally destroy, transform, subvert, America as a constitutional republic.”
Former congressman Allen West is peeved that a veteran who was kicked out of the military because she is gay had her discharge status upgraded to “honorable discharge,” making her eligible for veterans benefits.
While the military has a review board which handles requests to change discharge statuses, West seems to think the move to change the gay former service member’s status is without precedent and even suggests that opening health care benefits to gay veterans will harm other veterans.
He blames the decision on “an executive order repealing the ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ regulation,” despite the fact that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was repealed by Congress.
I’m quite sure liberal progressive socialists and radical gay Lefties are going to be angry with this post — oh well, get over it.
The Obama administration’s social equality transformation of the U.S. military continues and now sets a serious precedent for negative ramifications. Will every gay Soldier now lobby to have his/her discharges upgraded in order to claim benefits? Our nation can barely care adequately for veterans as it is.
What is crazy is that this former Soldier volunteered to be in the U.S. Army fully aware of rules and regulations, and violated one that resulted in her discharge under “other than honorable” conditions. Now, years later because of an executive order repealing the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” regulation, she is afforded an upgrade in her discharge?
Ms. Weiszmiller violated a regulation in existence at that time. The repeal today has no bearing upon her willing violation of that regulation. No one forced her into joining the U.S. Army, she did so voluntarily.
My concern is the precedent this will create. Now any former military members who have been discharged “other than honorable” will come back and appeal for upgrade of discharge years after — and claim back pay or benefits.
Here we are struggling to care for veterans who served honorably — but then again, in Obamaworld, everyone deserves a trophy for showing up (or not). After all according to Susan Rice, even a deserter served with honor and distinction.
