Allen West doesn’t mince words, especially when it comes to national security. In a recent interview with Frank Gaffney, West disagreed that the ‘war on terror’ is over, as suggested by a senior State Department official, and thus argued that we can’t just say we are fighting the Taliban or Al Qaeda. He said we must recognize that we are fighting radical Islamic fundamentalism and totalitarianism:

We cannot focus this thing down so narrowly to say we are just fighting Al Qaeda or the Taliban or it’s just a war on terrorism which is just a tactic. You really have to understand that this is a fight against radical Islamic fundamentalism and actually totalistarianism. You have to look at that full spectrum of this…the civilizational type of jihad, the infiltration of Sharia into Western civilization.

When asked about Obama’s recent 10 year security agreement with Karzai, West had some tough words for our Commander-in-Chief:

I look at what happened between President Obama and President Karzai as a 1930s Chamberlain/Hitler moment. There is not going to be peace in our time and when the president makes his speech and talks about negotiating with the Taliban, well as we said, less than 90 minutes after his departure, he got the response from the Taliban as far as these negotiations.

He also has a few things to say about Obama’s handling of the Bin Laden raid on the anniversary, but you’ll have to listen for that. I will tell you that in short, West said that “leaders take responsibility, they don’t take credit”.

    “I look at what happened between President Obama and President Karzai as a 1930s Chamberlain/Hitler moment.”

    “leaders take responsibility, they don’t take credit”

    Spoken like a true leader, not the sham of a leader currently occupying the White House.

    Tell me again, why Allen West is not running for president?

    • 12grace

      Yes, I love this guy, too!

    • steprock

      I actually know the answer to that one.

      He said that he was elected by the people of Florida and sent to Washington to do a job. It would not be appropriate to fail them in this responsibility by campaigning.

      He also said that he was new to Washington and busy learning the ropes of the world of politics and has a lot to learn.

      Compare to BHO:
      “Mr. Obama, you just got elected to Senate! What are you going to do next?”
      “I’m gonna run for President!”

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

        LOL Well said steprock. I sure hope he’ll start listening to the folks here in Florida who are willing to share him with the rest of the country!

        • steprock

          Oh, DO please share him! I admit I have a total man-crush on him

          (even though I’m a racist TEA-party loving, gun-toting, religion-clinging, GOP bigot and all)

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

            LOL.

              LOL= Laughing out loud?

              LOL= Lot’s of love?

              I don’t know why people type this because it makes no sense. Why don’t you just type what you mean this is not twitter.

          Keep him in Florida!!

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    While I’ll admit that I haven’t been 100% enamored with things West has done/said, I’m strongly warming up to the idea of this guy serving as part of an administration.

  • stage9

    I say again sir: “I predict that you will be the first legitimate African American president in US history.”

    And I can’t wait to see you on the ballot!

    • marketcomp

      I like the First Black American. We already have the First Black African American President claiming to be Black American because the media did not do their jobs. I think this calls for a revolution in name change.

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

        Actually, wouldn’t it really mean dear leader is the 2nd First black African American president, because slick willie was black too wasn’t he?
        So Allen West would be the best Black president we’ve ever had? But then again, who cares about color?
        My brain hurts right now trying to figure it out.

        • williamm

          I don’t see West as an African-American or Black-American. I see him as an American, one that loves this country and has put his life on the line many times for it. We need to drop the hyphen in his case. Save the hyphen for people like, Obama, Sharpton, Jesse Jackass, and others that want a divided country.

            I agree williamm- that’s why my brain hurt. I hate hyphens. Love John Wayne :-)

            Obama did not have the usual black experience. He is not even able to claim he is completely black nor is his wife. Allen West’s family have served our country and his roots go way back in America. Obama’s do not. His foreign dad excludes him from being eligible to be President or VP as per the Constitution. No foreign ties, born here to US citizenS. They did not have a harsh life or poverty. They both went to Ivy League schools despite not having outstanding grades. Michelle Obama’s thesis is pathetic and poorly written. How did she get into Princeton? Why was her thesis on race? The Obama’s have led blessed lives yet they hate America and insult Americans routinely. Obama grew up with white people in a upper income family. He is a product of Affirmative Action and his entire narrative is a carefully created fairytale, just like Clinton said in 2008. TheObamaFile.com

            • http://twitter.com/KenJohnson21 Ken Johnson

              Everyone is not a product of affirmative action, and what is the black experience?

    • steprock

      It drives me up a wall when Obama tries to claim past racial wrongs in America because he’s black. His father was from Kenya, not a descendant of black slaves. His mother was white.

      How, exactly, can he claim “African-American” heritage as we call it?

    • http://twitter.com/KenJohnson21 Ken Johnson

      First legitmate african american president! are you serious

  • FutureOnePercent

    Countdown until the media misreads this story and starts the “West calls Obama Hitler” line…

    Go West – I like Palin/West – if this ever occurred Washington would be a wonderful place and a model for the world

  • Sober_Thinking

    Allen West says it all… what more is there to say?

    Obama is a criminal. The sooner he is gone, the better of we’ll all be.

  • capelady

    America finally has a true statesman… there aren’t very many and God knows we need them desperately!!!

    Allen West is a patriot and it shows!

    It’s all in bible prophecy….

    . Bible Prophecy Teacher Frank Dimora Introduced!

    Before I start on Revelation 7: 9-17 it is interesting to note the following concerning Revelation 7:1. And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
    http://frankdimora.typepad.com/the_last_chronicles/

    Did you know the earth actually has “four corners”? The U.S. Navy discovered this most interesting fact by an orbiting Naval satellite in 1965. This article quoted a scientific newsletter dated 6/19/65, revealing a study by scientists at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. These scientists contend that the earth actually has “4 s”. These “s” are 4 areas of ocean, each covering several thousand square miles, in which the ocean waters are approximately 220 feet higher than if the earth were perfectly spherical. According to this article, these high spots are caused by the prevailing winds that build up friction on the ocean surface, piling up the waters. The Cutting Edge has secured a copy of the original Science News Letter article and a copy of the map showing the 4 s — the four corners. (see below).

    5. Prophecy Sign: “1Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:”

    Enough said.

    We need more honorable politicians like West and Barletta.

  • badbadlibs

    His grasp on the facts is amazing. Just to hear him debate bo or anyone in his pathetic administration would be worth whatever the ticket cost!

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    I would follow this man to hell while holding a can of gasoline. He could be our first black president. Obama was simply a mistake, just like Carter was. In November we will all wake up from this national nightmare and look back on this past four years as just a bad dream, just like the Carter administration was. Sometimes you have to work through the nightmares before you can face tough realities in daylight. This is the type of man that will enable us to face those unpleasant realities. That is why we need him.

  • Dave B

    Allen West is such an inspiration. I wish we had many more just like him.

    How magnificent would it have been if the first black president was a real man like Allen West, instead of the monkey boy currently in the White house.

    West is a man of God, honor, truth, and responsibility. I have loved him since he was in Iraq where I first heard of him.
