Zo talks about how the Democrats are trying to claim Lincoln’s legacy to hide their wretched past and Republicans are just letting them do it:

    This is probably one of Zo’s best rants. He couldn’t be more right. Seriously.

    I appreciate that he’s calling out the GOP especially… well, and of course, the Democrats for being the liars that they are. It will be interesting to see if the Republicans will pick themselves up and rally behind truth… make a stand and show some iron… I’m not holding my breath.

    I’m excited that Allen West is the face of this new initiative and that he is now affiliated with PJ Media… one of the few bastions of sanity and truth out there.

    All of this gives me great hope. It will be nice if the Republicans support this cause and finally get off the floor… and not be a hinderance.

    • it gives me a small ray of light of hope too Sober.

    • tinlizzieowner

      Don’t get your hopes up too soon. Common sense is like deodorant. Those who need it the most, don’t use it. πŸ˜‰

      • LOL!!! Good one! πŸ™‚

      • Sober_Thinking

        Lol! Excellent!

      • eldercurt

        so true πŸ™

    • Don

      I appreciate your optimism about getting leadership from the republicans, but in all honesty, the only thing the RINOs are going to do is beat down conservatives in order to maintain their control of what was once a credible political party. If people are going to fantasize about a bunch of RINOs coming to rescue our country, then they are smoking something that is not legal except in a couple of states. Sober_Thinking, you are a true American as so many on this board, but asking RINOs to be something they aren’t just delays the inevitable.

      • Sober_Thinking

        I’m with you brother.

        The one hope I have for the GOP is that in 2014, we can finish what we started in 2010 and weed out the closet liberals and establishment (self-centered career-minded) RINOs and help to turn that party around.

        But I’m really a proponent for a viable 3rd party at this point. I’ve lost hope in the GOP… though some folks (Ted Cruz, Rubio at times, Rand Paul, Trey Gowdy, Jason Chaffetz and others) do give me hope. My fear is that we will split conservative and anti-Democrat votes again and hand the election to Hillary in 2016. We can’t allow that to happen.

        So chronologically speaking, in 2014, if we can get enough conservatives into office for the Republicans (conservatives who are the real deal), to replace the dead weight and kick out the liberal RINOs, then I may be able to support the Republicans again. But if the elections are rigged and there’s not enough of a conservative/Tea Party transfusion, then I will tirelessly support a third party and do all I can to get a serious and real conservative candidate on the ticket in 2016.

        I appreciate your kind words.

        • Conservative_Utopia

          Are you of the opinion that the GOP is more conservative since the 2012 election or less?

          Allen West laments that the other side had to cheat to win. I’m guessing the GOP was well aware of that fact when they re-districted.

          • Sober_Thinking

            I’d have to say no by all indications. I think that Boehner and McConnell and any other status quo, establishment types are trying hard to squelch true conservatives out of fear and hatred towards them. We need to remove the posers and replace them with solid, Tea Party conservatives imo.

            Regarding Allen West… I think you are exactly right.

  • skyemantaray

    I agree with Zo. We need to stand up to the liberals and quit letting them steal away OUR heroes. They do irreparable damage to the like of Jefferson, Franklin, and Washington by gleefully smearing their reputations with rumor, hearsay, and propaganda (read “In Defense of Thomas Jefferson”, it’s very informative). And then those with exceptional character who the ignorant electorate still love and admire, they simply claim as their own. We can’t let them get away with it.

  • colliemum

    I really love that guy – he is always spot on. But having him and Allen West in one clip together? Wow-ie!!!
    Thanks for putting this up, scoop. Righteous anger laced with laughter is unbeatable.

    • c4pfan

      I can’t see the clip yet and I was thinking in my head how much I want them to be working together! LOL Too funny.

      • Cant’? Or don’t want to? There are proxy servers available that can help.. If that’s the issue…. ??

      I suspect that this Lincoln stuff is actually a setup to justify something they have up their sleeve.

    Brilliant words from the entire spectrum. Ain’t nothin here not to like. πŸ™‚

  • notsofastthere

    Allen West may do more to educate some people, than he was able to do in Congress. I am hopeful he will be more effective.

  • Democrats like Lincoln only because they fantasize about being him. They want to trample the constitution, centralize dictatorial power, and literally conquer their political enemies, while pretending it was all for the sake of saving the downtrodden and oppressed.

    • I think you just missed the mark… If you’ll pardon the pun.

    • aposematic

      The D’s embrace of Lincoln is alarming in so many ways. Lets not forget Lincoln presided over the Civil War…

  • Oh! That was AWESOME! I LOVE this guy! And then just when things couldn’t get better… Along comes Allen West and blew me right off my chair! Love the idea that West and Zo are going to actually DO something to advance the Conservative cause! Hello GOP are you even AWAKE any more? I know it’s winter but since when did elephants hibernate?

  • deTocqueville1

    Brilliant discourse! He is always bang on and always ahead on the curve. However expecting the tired, self defeated, bumbling Bonehead and his keystone cops followers to take the initiative on anything substantive is bound to frustrate.

    Fortunately there are the Rand Pauls and the Cruz’ who will speak out and there are the outside DC conservatives like Levin and Palin who will set the record straight.

  • sDee

    Zo is providing real time commentary on the modern propaganda machine in action. Its tentacles run deep.

    • TexasPGRRider

      I`ve been watching Zo the last few years, and believe me, Good Lord willin`, we will be witnessing the evolution of “The Dream Team for Liberty” in the times to come. If we don`t I`ll give you your money back. I am SO pumped!!!! Guess I better watch.

  • I loved it!!! Having both of these guys on the same clip is a great way to start the day! Thanks Scoop! πŸ˜€

    • TexasPGRRider

      You got THAT right sister !!! And I haven`t watched the clip yet … HAPPY DAY EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • lol. Watch it already! πŸ˜€

        • TexasPGRRider

          I DID, Then emailed Cruz, came back and just posted a report. Check it out ! I am SO PUMPED….Better have another cup of coffee….Later Lady

  • c4pfan

    I can’t watch this yet, but I look forward to it! I enjoy Zonation a lot!


    The “Republicans” are letting them do a lot of things. *sigh*

  • Kordane

    It’s quite a stretch for Democrats to co-opt Lincoln, the father of the Republican party, as one of their heroes.

    The Democrat party’s real heroes are Robert Byrd and Co. You know, the real racists, KKK members and such. After all, the Democrat party was the party which supported slavery and which fought against those who wanted emancipation.

    Black is white, white is black, good is evil, evil is good, etc – This is how the Left operates. They twist everything 180 degrees, because they must, for their very political survival.

  • badbadlibs

    It’s bitter sweet/funny sad/happy miserable…take your pick, to know there are men like Allen West and Zo who are so decent, so God fearing, so America loving and are side lined by the very party they could bring to life. Not to mention vilified by the vicious left.
    God love them and give them strength, and abundant good notoriety.
    That was an awesome video!

  • eldercurt

    Thank you so much!!!! My great-grandfather fought in the Civil War as a Union soldier! I believe in the principles Lincoln stood for and will NOT be subjugated to the rhetoric of the left; not now, not EVER!!! I am a black conservative and am proud to say so! P.S., thank you Col. West for your uncompromising stand for conservative values! Since I’m a Marine I have to say Semper Fi!

    • Thank you sir for your service! And welcome to the TRS! You are among friends here. πŸ™‚

    I can’t wait for these 2 to go on tour together. The dry, straight laced, no nonsense, Col. Allen West and the totally off the wall Alfonzo Rachel.
    Bill O’Reilly and Dennis Miller, eat your hearts out. You can’t hold a candle to this. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    • I want tickets! πŸ™‚

  • Ray

    But Zo, if you are a conservative, you are NOT a republican, which traditionally is big government liberals, who hated Reagan and redraw congressional maps to exclude conservatives like Allen West.

    • TexasPGRRider

      There ARE Independents out here too bro……..

      • Ray

        Usually Independents lean liberal.

  • forsyte

    Great to see that Dem. campaign was so wrong that 0% blacks are Republican.
    Can’t wait until Wests’ launching of new show.

  • WhiteGuy2

    Thats right, the Liberals have stolen MLK’s legacy, and are doing the same thing with Lincoln. Ask any black democrat what political party MLK was affiliated with and they will say he was a Democrat 99.9 % of the time.

    Why does the republican establishment allow the Democrats to steal the legacy of the greatest among us? This is why we are loosing the public relations war. Its because our leadership wont fight. This is why those establishment Republicans must be fired and retired.

    Well times are a changing. I have no doubt West and Zo are the few good men we need to get the job done.

  • sjmom

    I wonder how many know it was the Dems who were in favor of slavery and people like Al Gore’s father railed again civil rights. The Republicans have allowed the Dems to steal their legacy and have cowered in the face of evil. Abraham Lincoln did not, our founding Fathers did not and so maybe its the time for another war, not with bloodshed nor bullets but with Truth and “Right”.

    So happy to see Allen West; it did not take him long to emerge and I pray all the best for him and his family and look forward to seeing him much in the future.

  • CitizenVetUSA

    Allen and Zo made my day.

    • nibblesyble

      I know, feel the exact same way!

  • forsyte

    Came across Paster Manning recently. Maybe controversial, but he did predict a major rising up of righteous black men as a prophecy. Is this it? Hope so…

    Here’s a quote from him and a link:

    “For the past thirteen years I have been preaching The Vision of, 50,000 Righteous Men Living for the Lord in the community formerly called Harlem. Essentially the answer to the problems of this Ghetto can be solved by the men becoming Righteous Men, but more importantly Almighty God will get the glory when He raises up a people who are now not a people; and the world will have to acknowledge it was the Living God who raised up this community.”

    Two of my favorite guys together on one screen – be still my beating heart! Terrific content that’s easy to look at ~ πŸ˜‰ Love it.

  • CO2isGood

    Col. West has that R. Lee Ermey thing going for him…big time! He has all the right qualities to be taken seriously. Honor, strength, wisdom, character, humour…and unlike most of todays politicians, he has actually put his life on the line for his beliefs. Truely a man more Lincolnesque than Obama could ever dream of being.

    Looove it! What a way to start my day!

  • TexasPGRRider

    I must report to all of you that after I saw this clip this morning, I was inspired to contact our freshman senator Tom Cruz via email, and would like to share part of the content. “…the next time you have the floor in the Senate could you PLEASE state the FACT that both Abraham Lincoln and the Honorable Rev. Martin Luther King were Republicans. I`m sure each of these Patriots wouldn`t mind the echo of Truth thru the halls of the Senate”. Contact @ cruz.senate.gov…I would urge everyone to contact and support the freshmen legislators we have sent to DC before they are distracted by the gutless wonders that currently occupy that sacred ground. WE ARE AT WAR !!!!

  • msverde1

    This is outstanding, RS! Next Generation appears to be a giant leap in the right (pardon the slight pun) direction…and who says men of war can’t have good comportment and a common man sense of good humor.

  • chatterbox365

    Love listening to Zo and he is dead on as usual. We can’t let these liberals hijack our legacy. I hope enough conservative wake up because the GOP establishment continues to sell us out.

  • steprock

    Zo delivers his message with energy and style. He’s also very clever, making many logical connections that might have you pausing and rewinding to try and catch up with him.

    Seeing him on with Allen West gives me a warm feeling like I’m in a field of pop-tarts!
