    Oh, Thank God, a voice of reason and stability! Thank you RS!

    There are very few politicians in DC willing to tell the truth, wiling to go in and fight, and we do not need both hands to count them. I will stand with Allen West.

    Imagine 20,000 Christians were invited to a massive evangelical prayer service at the Republican Convention. That would be extremism…….

    “”The Democratic National Convention will open with a focus on Islam. 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend, according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), led by one of the un-indicted co-conspirators in the World Trade Center bombing. “”

    “Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs”

    I never knew we had “indigenous” muslims in America!!!!

    You all do know exactly where this is going – DON’T YOU?

    • steprock

      Muslims will grow and when their numbers are large enough

      Impose tighter regulations on all the Americanized Muslims.
      Will drive out all other religions.
      Become socially and politically active
      Resort to force if needs be, or just taking over high government positions.
      Extremes of Sharia law will be imposed.

      I’m just guessing based on facts and historical context. Aside from that, just spittin in the wind here.

        They are allowed four wives, so their birthrate is higher and when they go on welfare their demands are greater. In Britain EACH WIFE gets full welfare benefits – so they burden the government financially to help bring the destruction of democratic systems.

        • ConnieConservative

          Glenn Beck has covered this. Frances Fox Piven’s socialist theory is to have
          all her revolutionary supporters claim benefits of every type in order to
          collapse the capitalistic system. Looks like they are coming at us from
          all sides. We need very strong leaders. Allen West fits the bill.

        The only part Muslims played in the founding of our nation was collecting massive amounts of bribes as Barbary Pirates paid to them in exchange for not attacking our ships, until we had a Navy and under Thomas Jefferson we went after them! So they were our enemies in war… that is their participation.

    • Patriot077

      If memory serves, Brigette Gabriel discussed this plot in one of her books. They were using the Iroquois tribe to “establish” their right of ownership in the same way they take possession of a land by building mosques over the conquered church.

      Give these people an inch and they will take everything.

      • sDee

        BINGO

  • Sober_Thinking

    Love Allen West! Seriously…

    I hope he’s speaking at the RNC! The Dems always take it on the chin (again) when an intelligent, conservative black man speaks with authority and truth and reveals them for the slimeballs they are.

    Did I mention that I love this guy?

    • steprock

      Me too! West is my favorite pol! [coming clean about politcal man-crush]

      Even though I’m a GOP racist, I’d love to see him get to higher levels of office, even a run at the WH some day. I’d say that all us GOP racists love guys like West! Pretty amazing, considering we’re racists and see nothing but color, huh?

      (Too much?)

      But seriously, I only see this man as an upstanding American and an outstanding voice of reason. I never see him as a hyphenated American. I see a bold leader who I love listening to.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Good post… good point!

        I agree. Color has NOTHING to do with Allen West as far as what he stands for, his character, and what he says… it honestly never enters my mind.

        But when I step back, I imagine what a great voice and inspiration folks like Allen West, Thomas Sowell, Love and so many others are… I imagine how they might be more credible and effective with the right audience… and truly, that audience could be black or white. The fact that they are black, sure destory’s the liberals’ narrative and false stereotype though.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002997192223 Deborah Clemence

          That is why the left fights so hard to discredit them… because they are off of the plantation and make the left look like the losers and bigots that they are!

          • Sober_Thinking

            Amen

  • poljunkie

    Allen West rocks.

    What more can I say?

  • 911Infidel

    Why isn’t this man Speaker of the House yet?

    • sDee

      because cause he scares the hell out of everyone in a position to put him there.

      • 911Infidel

        That’s right. The truth is a bee-yatch. Anyone who dares to speak the truth is immediately ostracised by the chicken shites.

    • steprock

      I like it! AW for Speaker!

      OH! Cabinet member. “Sec of State West”

      • 911Infidel

        Def Sec or NSA advisor. Oh wait…CIA director. We need about 4 or 5 Alan Wests. We have them. Five of them signed onto to that Huma Albedin petition. Lets get them in a place where they can do even more good.

        • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

          Michelle Bachmann for speaker! The gop needs to get on it and send her funds for her race, but they know what they’re doing right? RIGHT? Good grief, I’m getting ulcers.

          And Allen West for everything else :-) He can be a busy guy.

          • 911Infidel

            Wouldn’t that be something. A woman of righteousness and exquisite beauty vs the plastic and botox wicked witch of the west.

            • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

              I do have a girl crush on her ;-) A woman of righteousness and exquisite beauty who doesn’t cry and whimper like the one we have now.

              • 911Infidel

                Charm is decietful and beauty is vain, but a woman of the Lord, she shall be praised.

                “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
                Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
                She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.” (Prov 31: 10-12)

                Ergo, I share your crush on her. ;P

        romney will not pick any more conservatives for his cabinet. he picked ryan and that is as far as he is going to go. rino romney is NOT a conservative and he’s already thrown down the gauntlet for 2016 should he win in november keeping anyone from running to the right of him in primaries.

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    Dang it, why can’t more of our congress and senate have as much of a spine as Allen West? I sure wish he was the presidential nominee. I love this man, he’s one of the very few who have guts, who gets it and who tells it. He’s not perfect and he doesn’t act like he is. Lord, we need more people like him to represent us!

    • virginiagentleman1

      Agreed MiLady.
      It doesn’t seem as if spine is a prime requirement for holding high office these days, does it.
      Then when men like West and women like Palin come along and challenge the status quo, the spineless band together against them.
      Politics in America appears to be more about retaining ones perceived power then actually honoring their oaths and serving the people.

      Unfortunately, instead of a West or a Palin, we have R&R instead.

      This will be a very close election but I believe that R&R will squeak by and win in November.
      If they have not made great inroads into solving the budgetary and massive debt problems in their first term, expect to see them primaried for 2016.
      I don’t have much faith in Romney/Ryan, but they are an improvement over Obama/Biden by at least a factor of ten.

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        I agree too my virginiagenleman! I don’t have much faith in r/r either, but improvement by a squeak, yes.

        • poljunkie

          Pretty much my sentiments too.
          At this point guys I just want to win this thing, and stop the damage thats being done.

      • steprock

        Yes indeed. Plastic Man is not my favorite politician, but Mark Levin’s orange juice can would be an improvement!

        I’m amazed that the term “close election” is being used! With a horrible track record, a strong Conservative would be a shoo-in over Obama! Why is this not already a clear landslide?

        Adding Ryan to the ticket makes them look like a pair of financial geniuses, and I think that’s what a lot of Americans realize we need. Amateur hour at the WH must come to an end in November! We can’t afford the show any more!

        • virginiagentleman1

          Howdy Rock!
          Unfortunately my dear friend, although Ryan may come close, there isn’t a true conservative in the race.
          I agree with you, this should be a landslide victory for the right, but let’s be honest, Romney is a lackluster candidate and his campaign has been a study in ‘what NOT to do to win an election’!
          Frankly, the political ‘coroner’ was holding a mirror under Mitt’s nose to see if he was even breathing, until he added Ryan to the ticket!
          Ryan has brought some badly needed energy to Mitts campaign, maybe not enough for a landslide victory, but hopefully enough to throw the imperial marxist president out on his azz!
          Hey, one can hope!

          • steprock

            I shall hope!

            Personally, I liked Newt, because he’s an experienced and hard-nosed SOB who might get things done. As opposed to those who make promises they can’t keep.

            Mitt? Eh. He governed from the middle and did a great job trashing the GOP last time he ran. He changes his tune, like so many politicians, based on the political winds. Plastic Man. Etch-a-Sketch politician.

            Let’s elect him then watch him like a hawk! Keep the pressure on and force him to keep playing the part of real Conservative.

            • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carolyn-Dixon/100000062171632 Carolyn Dixon

              he’s already got his team in for 2016 so that no one can run to the right of him. check out my post above or go to politico.com and see the article about romney and the 2016 calendar. it will make your blood boil for sure.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carolyn-Dixon/100000062171632 Carolyn Dixon

        and romney and company are manipulating the 2016 calendar already to keep others from running against him should he win the election in november. doesn’t that tell you what a sleaze romney really is? he will do everything he can to keep palin, paul, west and others from running against him. let him try but we voters will have the last laugh and votes.

    That was 3 minutes of Awesome. “I’m just an old soldier and we’re aggressive. We go at you and make you try to defend the things that you believe in and promote”. He knows exactly why liberals hate his guts and he doesn’t give a damn.

    Col. West has a bright future in the GOP. Heck, we have so many rising stars that sometimes it is hard to remember them all. The 2010 election is probably the most under-rated election of my lifetime. Democrats and the Media(BIRP) have been pretending that it didn’t happen ever since. They speak as if Republicans had any power to obstruct anything in DC between 2009 and 2011. It’s like a blank spot in their collective memory.

    Well that “blank spot” turns out to be the “tea party” who, unlike OWS, went from protesting to working and voting in almost every congressional district in this country. Their primary concern is defeating the Democrat party, but the secondary objective of electing Republicans with spines and conviction is also being realized. This is only the second election and they all know that we have only just begun what needs to be done if our country is going to survive.

    • marketcomp

      You are right, Donald. Our bench is so deep and conservatism runs through their veins, my friend. Unlike the democrats who is so void of anyone with substance. I mean let’s take a look at what they have. First, they give us Barack Obama who may or may not have been born in the US along with questionable citizenship. Second, they trout out an old women, Hilary Clinton, who we know was born here but still carrying the left-wing mantle and carries the same old empty liberal/marxist ideology. Next, they present Bill Clinton who is just pitiful! I mean a rapist and he’s the gravitas of the party. Moreover, the democrats’ future is Sandra Fluke! Now that is an empty bench and void of ideas.

      • virginiagentleman1

        Democrats/liberals are an empty bench and devoid of ideas?
        Heck, MC, I thought they were the sewer, and the stuff one finds in a sewer!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Donald-Arey-III/100001713622116 Donald Arey III

        Democrats seem to have no plan for what happens when we run out of money, in my amateur opinion. When the ponzi scheme collapses what do they have to offer as an alternative? Certainly not “smaller government”, “freedom” and “personal responsibility”.

        Smaller government means “dog eat dog” in their eyes. They think a “free market” leads to “economic slavery” some how. If you can’t get something for free you are a “wage slave”.

        “Freedom” is anarchy in their cloistered minds. They can’t stand it that someone would choose to live differently than they do and enjoy it at the same time. “Freedom” means free to rape the planet and exploit the poor or something. They can’t accept that being free means you are free to fail, no matter how “hard you try”.

        “Personal Responsibility?” Don’t make me laugh. Their convention will be nothing but a freakshow of pro-abortion sentiment. Abortion is the ultimate abdication of responsibility.

        • virginiagentleman1

          In your amateur opinion, Donald? You are much too humble, my friend.

      • Marky_D

        I’ve often wondered how it can be that one state can elect both DWS and Allen West. I’m a Brit and maybe I’m just not getting the scale of the state but over here regions are VERY polarized – I just couldn’t imagine two politicians so far apart in ideology being elected in the same region in the UK.

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/H3FKUGAPVG6CDFYSCJHSAIAZW4 david r

          Most of the time it is due to ethnic make-up of the district and who comes out to vote. In Debbie Wassermann Schultz case- her district make-up is heavily populated by Jewish liberal Democrats for which she is one. And they happen to be her core base, and are very active voters.
          As for Allen West his voters tend to be more diverse in ethnicity, and are your average small business hard working lower to middle class across the board voters
          I hope this helps a little…

  • Nukeman60

    We will be able to tell how well we have affected the corrupt nature of Washington simple by how far this man goes in politics. He should be President, he could be Speaker of the House, and he definitely is the voice of tons of decent, conservative Americans that call themselves the Tea Party (and I include myself in those ranks).

    If he is subdued in Congress, then we have failed to remove all the progressives and RINOs that abound there, those who wish to keep the status quo and prevent our great country from moving forward (and we must then increase our efforts tenfold).

    If his voice continues to grow, then we know we are winning and the future can and will be bright for us all, for our great nation, and for the generations that follow.

    • sDee

      You are right He is our bellweather. Many succumb. Only the strongest survive. If West cannot, it bodes badly for freedom.

      This is why I encourage everyone I know to donate to his campaign – only if is 5 or 10 dollars. Just so the man knows we are out here!

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    Its refreshing to see a real Republican leader emerge from the herd of butt-kissing RINOs that led the party until 2010. The election in 2010 was the biggest turnaround in the Congress in over 70 years. Since that election more RINOs have been sent whining their way back to their home states to never be heard of again. We need to flush more RINOs before we can have a true American force in the Congress. Allen West is the kind of leader that can do just that. 2010 AGAIN.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carolyn-Dixon/100000062171632 Carolyn Dixon

      it will start in 2012 and go through 2016 when we will take complete control of the house, senate and kick romney out if he should win. but if he is doing what I posted (see above article) then he is definitely not conservative and more like obama than I realized.

  • stage9

    “We should be on offense talking about extremism of Democrat Party.”

    But that would require the courage of a CONSERVATIVE. Repugnantcans are NOT Conservatives!

    Notice how the only ones who actually fight against the fray are ALWAYS Conservative voices. NEVER repugnantcans. Don’t ever expect courage out of a repugnantcan. Never expect lawfulness out of a liberal.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    I am dumfounded as to why this guy is not being allowed to speak at the convention, I think the sad part is that our rinos in our party think of West as an extremist. Instead of combating the extremist on the lib side with this courageous leader our side decides to sideline him.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carolyn-Dixon/100000062171632 Carolyn Dixon

    The following is why I believe, that in 2016, there will be a third party and it will be one of palin/west on the ticket. this would be the history making election of all times.

    TAMPA, Fla. — The Republican Party changed a series of rules Friday to increase Mitt Romney’s power over the GOP and make it harder for insurgent presidential candidates to compete in future elections.

    After Ron Paul used the convention process to win the most delegates in some of the states where he lost the popular vote, the Republican convention rules committee passed a measure to ensure that a candidate who wins a statewide caucus or primary ultimately controls its delegation and gets more leverage over picking his delegates.

    The Romney campaign’s move will mean less consequential state conventions — lower-profile events that typically follow the popular vote caucuses and primaries. It also might fend off potential primary challenges from the right in 2016 should Romney win this November. The rule change likely forces states like Iowa to adjust their caucus process to ensure that whoever wins on caucus night is ultimately awarded the most delegates.

    “We are presenting a package of rules designed to correct what we saw as a damaging flaw in 2012 and wish to correct for 2016,” said Ben Ginsberg, Romney’s top lawyer.

    Looking to avoid another protracted nominating contest, the body also voted that any state can award delegates winner-take-all. Going into 2012, the rule was changed so that states with elections before April 1 had to proportionally award their delegates. The practical effect of this rules change was that it took much longer for Romney to secure the nomination.

    If Romney wins in November, another significant change passed here Friday give him dramatically more power to shape the primary calendar and apportionment of delegates going into 2016. Historically only the convention rules committee, which meets just once every four years, can officially change party rules. But going forward, the Republican National Committee — a group of 168 elected representatives from the states and territories — can change party rules with a three-fourths vote.

    Conservatives cried foul, but hours of heated speeches couldn’t hold off the pro-Romney maneuvers.

    “It’s definitely a power grab by the campaign, the committee,” said Drew McKissick, South Carolina’s representative on the rules committee. “It’s bad juju. Once you let the genie out of the bottle, they can do anything.”

    “This really is truly groundbreaking,” he added. “We are telling all the states how they have to pick their delegates.”

    Virginia representative Morton Blackwell, who has been a delegate at every convention since he supported Barry Goldwater in 1964, said allowing rules to be changed in between conventions will make it easy for an incumbent president to tailor the rules to his liking.

    “Arms are twisted,” he said. “Trips are offered. Various people can be influenced. And that is an unhealthy situation….It amounts to a power grab…This would centralize it much more.”

    Blackwell frets that the push will alienate Paul supporters and drive them to support third-party candidates.

    “They will see this an attack on them: newcomers,” he added. “Mr. Ginsberg’s proposal is going to lose votes, which should have gone to our Republican candidates this November.”

    Ginsberg preached the value of flexibility.

    “This is for better or for worse necessary in the world in which we find ourselves politically,” Ginsberg said. “Providing this flexibility to be able to deal … is important for the political survival of the party in the electoral context.”

    Ginsberg also helped push a rule change so that members of the convention site selection committee can pick their home state, which has previously been banned. And he helped kill a measure that would have given 10 percent more delegates to states with closed primaries.

    Many members of the platform committee closely watched Ginsberg. He’s a Patton Boggs partner who played key roles in the 2000 Florida recount and resigned from the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2004 after advising the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

    Representatives from Utah and Massachusetts, two states in which Romney has deep ties, spoke in support of the changes.

    A host of representatives from other states worried aloud about changing precedents.

    “I know there’s a lot of lobbying going on from some powerful people,” said Bettye Fine Collins from Alabama, “but let me remind each and every one of you the most powerful people are those voters back home.”

    Many Republicans who supported the Romney delegate push feel that the wishes of Republican rank-and-file voters are not being respected in the three states whose delegations Paul controls at the convention: Nevada, Minnesota and Iowa.

    “These conventions are rife with mischief,” said Robert O’Brien, representative of California. “They can overturn the will of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of voters who supported a candidate.”
