Allen West: Obama is leveling tax weapons of mass destruction on all taxpayers

It is clear Allen West has waged a war of ideas on the Left and he’s not afraid to use hyperbole to get his point across:

Although he has never served our country in uniform, or risked his life to defend its freedom and liberties on distant shores, it seems President Obama understands a thing or two about weaponry as well. In the president’s case, Mr. Speaker, the current weapon of choice is tax policy, and the enemies are small businesses, investors, entrepreneurs, and corporations who seemingly are deemed undesirable. …

But increasing tax revenue does not appear to be the president’s strategic objective. If it were he would be recommending policies to help increase the revenue base by optimizing the regulatory and tax environment to encourage businesses to invest, grow, and hire. …

President Obama seems determined to punish and wipe out economic success in this country, leveling tax weapons of mass destruction on all taxpayers.

This is war and it has been war for a long time, and Allen West is leading the charge, calling on us all to pick up a ‘weapon’ and engage in this battle of ideas.

  1. Stupid Americans voting for Obama, you think he’s just going after the rich. He’s going after taxing your 401K’s, your savings for retirement. Still think he’s tops?

  2. A ‘real’ black man could one day be president, I hope that real black man will be Allen West.

    Allen West for president.

  3. I want him to be President really bad. I like him ten times more than Palin….and I love Palin.

  4. What a pity that Allen West was deprived of the privilege of being America’s first black president!!

  5. Col. West is one of the few republicans with stones.
    In a day and time when repubs control the House, the men and women of the party show a decided lack of courage. Congressman West is one of the few exceptions and is to be commended for his leadership.

  6. Wrong: this is not hyperbole. Generational theft leads to generational poverty, like what they have in that bunghole Europe. Using taxation in this manner will indeed be a WMD; one that destroys a national economy, and devastates all others attached to it. One that also permanently destroys the fiscal futures of countless families, leaving them paupers, for the rest of their time on Earth. That is not hyperbole, but fact.

  7. If we can’t put this man into the white house or top cabinet post this year, he’d be well placed as the next speaker of the house of representatives IMHO.

    1. At the very least, he should be Speaker my friend. I don’t see him accepting a cabinet post unless it is Sec. of Defence.
      My own thoughts are that he will become VP, possibly with Palin, before moving on to the White House as President.
      At a time where America is crying out to her elected officials to show their patriotism, it would appear that few besides West heard the call.

      1. Even a blind man can add on an abacus.
        Obama has a problem with addition, subtraction, and multiplication ! No problem with division. West would be such fresh air in any of those positions. You are probably right as to Defense though.

  8. Allen West says all the things I want GOP leaders and the GOP nominee to be saying. Can we have a do-over?

  9. Imagine an entire Republican Party filled with Allen Wests.

    The Left would implode.

    It would be glorious.

  10. Obama knows he cannot prevail in the next election. His reptilian features in his black face his lips, his eyes, his domineering forehead, become more pronounced each day with each new scandal.

    The process of implementing tyranny is being accelerated. Civil Service employees, threaten with termination or intimidated by employee union officials and stooges, are the tip of the spear.

    Your fear is the foreground; your throat is the target. You’ve been warned.


    1. Why do you allude to “his black face”, when you must know how that sounds? No, I’m not calling you a racist — you’re touting Allen West, I know — but your tying in Obama’s vileness with his skin color is (I think, anyway) needlessly provocative, notwithstanding your lack of malicious intent.

      1. No, I think WFM is implying that Maobama is a black faced reptilian alien. As in, from another planet.

        1. I think you’re right, but it still doesn’t come off well. This isn’t political correctness, either, rather an acknowledgment of the subtleties of language and how most people are apt to read “his black face”. I always think about black Americans with conservative leanings (there are many, I believe) coming one way or another to a conservative blog and reading something and nodding their heads, as they realize they agree with the commonsense points being made. And on this thread, it might be the first time they hear about Rep. Allen West, and perhaps they would be encouraged by the support they see for this fantastic black conservative politician. Such support exemplifies what you, WordsFailMe, and most others here know: conservatives support the principled, regardless of skin color, gender, etc. However, then our hypothetical black would-be conservative, reading “his black face”, might well get the wrong impression and be turned off. This is not to say that WordsFailMe, you or I should refrain from criticizing Obama in the most scathing terms, however, we should refrain from using language that might reasonably be misinterpreted as being racist in intent.

          In short, were I WordsFailMe, I would edit my post to read as follows:

          “Obama knows he cannot prevail in the next election. His reptilian features become more pronounced each day with each new scandal.”

          In addition to subtracting any possible confusion as to WFM’s intent with regard to the president’s ethnicity, I think the edited version I have offered reads better for the simple reason that brevity is the soul of wit. As always, less is more — leave as much as possible to the reader’s imagination. Obama *is* indeed reptilian, in so many ways.

          1. I am of the belief that there is currently a race war of words going on where being white means you are wrong. There are only two ways to combat this. Since we won’t fire the first shot, we can treat minorities with a platform of reciprocity. The time of being sensitive died when affirmative action became law. I have lived my entire life under affirmative action and I live in Maryland which means for any state local or federal job, whites need not apply. It is time to fight it and, sadly, it is a case of one race being very wrong and extremely offensive and I don’t mean we pale folks. I know it sounds harsh but kindness has never won a battle.

            1. Mike and WFM, you both make excellent points, but I still say we should do our best, as conservatives, to not alienate those we might attract to the conservative cause, even if that means taking into account the feelings of others who never take into account ours.

              To give a simple example, I understand how Jeremiah Wright came to be such a racist; he grew up in a very different country than the America of today. What I don’t forgive him is his crusade to pass on his resentment and hatred for the indignities he witnessed and may have suffered, to those who have no firsthand claim to such resentment and hatred.

              What I try to do is to put myself in the position of a man my age (39) who grew up hearing about how his grandfather had to drink from a “colored” water fountain in, e.g., Maryland, yet who looks around him and sees a country that has done all it can to delegitimize the slighest trace of institutionalized racism, and further sees that a good deal of perhaps well-intended policies meant to help black people have in fact hurt them terribly. This thoughtful man of 39 is surrounded by voices like Jeremiah Wright’s, yet their arguments are beginning to strike him as thin, vengeful coverings for their own anger and hatred. A coworker tells him to check out The Right Scoop, and he likes what he finds. He begins to poke around in the comments, to listen in on the discussion happening here. My aim is to make the discussion one that resonates with him, so that he joins it, instead of being turned off by remarks that, although neutral as to race in their intent, can easily be misread by such a man as he — one who, remember, has spent his life surrounded by Jeremiah Wrights urging him to see racism everywhere he looks, and to disavow the American dream for a philosophy of resentment.

              1. (Your thoughts are so clear and so pointed that you could be Thomas Sowell himself, writing under a “Nom de Internet.”

                Or you could be the cleverest troll ever to post on a site which grows in popularity and readability every day. No matter. Your thoughts are well expressed and your point, though not your intent, is clear. You are either assisting a fellow poster in framing a more convincing argument or you are sending a subtle and cogent warning to Right Scoop to raise its comment standards if it cares to extend its appeal. Time will tell, I suppose, but it makes no difference to me. In the short run, your sharp point raise another.)

                So, in the interest of creating arguments that resonate, one’s language should be chosen to reduce potential offense to potential “resonators.”

                The term “black” has been used in literature and oratory to connote or symbolize evil, disaster and lurking doom for centuries before the phrases such as “black power, black is beautiful and black panthers” were coined. My contention is that the word “black,” as it is flippantly used to group millions of people with different genealogies, different languages, different attitudes, education and cultures was selected by men with evil intent BECAUSE of that word’s historical connotations.

                “Black” was chosen by men who may have been communists and anarchists specifically to take advantage of the word’s negative and powerful connotations. I picture the master, Vladimir Illych Lenin, arguing, “How can a man not take a side where one side is defined as BLACK and the other as WHITE? We have them by their balls, comrades.” The term “black” was selected and popularized by those with evil and manipulative intent so that they could more effectively use racial difference for political and social leverage.

                It didn’t matter to the manipulators that “black people” are every bit as diverse within the group as every other racial group. Separating “blacks” from every other racial group on the face of the earth has more value to these evil men than truth. Separating “blacks” using fear and myth was an egregious and evil tactic, but you must agree was that it was the most efficacious means to consolidate an otherwise diverse peoples and control and employ their energies and their very lives for political purposes.

                Black children are not born knowing they are black. They learn this social fact from their mothers. Black fathers take their young sons aside as they enter teen age to caution them about trustingly walking through white enclaves. The parents “hyper sensitize” their own children to racism to guarantee that the child will over-react in self defense and even commit acts that will send the child to prison for life for a social “affront.” What kind of parents are these? What if white mothers began to teach there children to avoid approaching groups of black children especially if the smell of gasoline was in the air? The myth of “black is victim” grows and builds and finds fertile new ground in the untainted imaginations of each new generation.. But the word black now carries with it the seeds of its own destruction.

                It’s political bullshit. It’s a lie. It’s an evil, destructive illusion with little “black” feet. It is a concept which engenders fear, hate, vengeance, murder, violence and perhaps war.

                In the mid 20th century, some people began to describe themselves as Black. But why not chose “brown” which more accurately reflects the skin tone of a people out of Africa for more than 400 years? Why not “African” which clearly indicates a common geographical origin? Was it because Africa is the home of some people who are not black? Back is the total opposite of white and the manipulators want to make African origin Americans feel like they are the polar opposite of whites. Am I the only person who sees the political capital available in the choice of the descriptor “BLACK” to separate people within the same culture?

                JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON ® — Other than to convince a group of people that that their victim-hood was real, their cause just and that their enemy, manifest, how would you, an educated man, convince 15 to 20 American adults in Alabama to chase down a white man onto his own porch and beat him into a coma using any object they could find laying on the ground?

                What word would you have chosen, you, a 39 year old person of some skill and intellect, to convince 15 to 20, randomly selected adult Americans to do the same? Give me that word please and I will never post again.

                What is it that resonates with reasonable, people of conscience?

                Somewhere near the end of the 17th century, some people of all races began to describe themselves as “equal.”

                “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…”

                That statement, in itself, DID NOT CREATE EQUALITY. Is that news to anyone? Was racial, gender, ethnic and religious equality CREATED at that moment by that statement penned on a moldy piece of parchment? No.

                That statement merely proclaimed in no uncertain terms to the rest of the power-hungry monarchists and communists in this world that Americans were, “Mad as Hell and we’re not going to take it anymore.” No one is going to separate us. We recognize that we are different, one man from another and it is that recognition that makes us strong and differentiates our culture from all others.

                I stopped being white many years ago when at my grandmother’s knee a I saw water fountains in a small Texas town painted with the word “white,” and bus stations with two doors, one marked “White Only.” I grew up in Japan with whites, blacks and Japanese children where my Air Force father sat at my mother’s dinner table with Japanese pilots laughing, lying and bragging while the re-flew WWII Pacific air battles with their hands above the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and iced tea.

                When will the people in this nation stop being white or black or Japanese and just be equal.

                But I don’t have any need to be white or black or Japanese in order to despise the black-hearted men who seek to steal my efforts and my wealth and make me cower and submit. And I despise them to the very bottom of my raging, color-less veteran’s soul.

                On second thought, I am inclined to agree with you. I think I’ll edit my original statement. It does resonate better.

              2. JR: I had assumed, by the credibility of your argumentation style that you had intended engagement, which I would enjoy. Unless you find my positions too specious or fallacious, or too disgusting and racist, I would have expected retort.

                You need not address my positions but really thought that this issue would interest you.

                Shutting me up would of course end the whole issue but revealing me as an imbecile or a bigot could be very rewarding to the right person.

                Honestly, I’m not looking for battle neither of us has anything to gain by assault. But an exploration of the issues would have value.My skin is fairly thick and my mind still has some openness to it.

                I’m sorry that a healthy, spirited and hard-hitting dialogue did not ensue. I thank you for your thoughtful analysis and you have given me more to consider.

          2. My intent here is to destroy the word black as it is used to distinguish one American from another.

            I grew up in a family where we went years, even decades and never once thought of ourselves as white. Being white just didn’t come up in conversation.

            But is there an African American who has gone a single day without having been reminded of their skin color? And who is the reminder-another African American? I’ll bet there are millions of African Americans who find it compulsory to remind their fellow every day of their shared- blackness.

            How does it stop? When will it stop? Who should make the first effort to stop it?

            Black is a concept of a dead and deadly past. Black is a concept which is binding people more tightly to a tragic end than chains of slavery ever could have. Black is the giant python tightening its coils around necks every day, every moment.

            Black is a bogey man hounding millions of innocent people and black never sleeps. Black is an illusion, promoted by evil men with evil intent and will be used ultimately to oppress and enslave once more an entire people who did nothing more than be born.

            My intent here is to castrate the word black and return it to literature, fairy tales and stimulating oratory where, along with millions of other words, it belongs.

            Words may fail me but I will not not fail them.


      2. Point taken: Words are powerful. But it’s just a “word,” probably the first “property” a human mind ever really processes. Words are one way the mind shows itself and participates in the physical world.

        The word black was used figuratively here as in “black deeds,” “a black heart,” and “a blackened reputation.” These literary use of the word “black” precedes the declaration of ownership of the word by any sect, groups rock and roll band or ethno-centric political movement. I recognize the connotations come and go and certain words are narrowed in the public application just as women’s hemlines move up and down, or, for that matter, young men’s belt-lines.

        I intended no racial offense by describing Obama’s face as black, here. His face is obviously not black. I had hoped that distinction may have added to the impact of the post. Obama is black, but he’s is also “not black.” Maybe the pun attempted to cross too much space in a single bound. The meaning of the post would not have been changed by removal of that word.

        I chose the words black and reptilian in this post to reinforce an image of in-human-ness, absence of decency, morality and compassion, that is, my intent was to compare the face of person to a face of evil.

        I assure you that I am no racist but I won’t be silent when any usurper connives with other foul and evil minded stooges to steal my country, my culture and my freedom and I don’t give a tinker’s damn what freaking color the black bastard is.

  11. I just absolutely LOVE this man!!! West for VP, and then PRESIDENT!! Oh, yeah. Go West!!

    1. I’d be happy if he would take Hillary Clintons place too….He’d be perfect for that…

  12. They must hate it when He is in the House

    Can you imagine if only half the dopes up there were like Allen West

    That would be awesome!

  13. We are in a battle of ideas for the soul of this nation. Finally, a man who chooses a rhetorical strategy that fits the situation: Ideological War.

      1. In my state, (non-battleground), I can actually do that with no danger of my protest vote electing Obummer. I might just do that.

        1. I’m in a non-battleground, Socialistic, Union run, rat trap of a State myself. Good ol’ People’s Republic O’ Maryland.

          1. lol… so true.

            So, I’m curious, how did you end up there, and what are you planning on doing about that? Moving, planting signs – loud and proud- in your yard and yapping and neighbors, or loading for bear? …all the above? Just curious.

            1. I do all of the above. I speak loudly, and carry a big rifle, shotgun, and pistol. I refuse to move, however because if a war starts I am already behind enemy lines. For an understanding of what I’m talking about just google Jedburgh Teams and WWII.

              I ended up here because my parents are the Officer and a Gentleman story. Dad is a USNA grad and mom grew up in Annapolis.

                1. One of my top three war movies of all times. Is your avatar the symbol for 7th Air Cav?

                2. The big gold patch represents the First Cavalry Division. The 7th Cav, Custer’s original command, was the first regiment in the Division designated as the “Air Mobile.” They were the first combat troops to have their own helicopters.

                  I was at Camp Evans in VN where the 7th, and the 2nd of the 7th “Gary Owens,” were located well after the events protrayed in the film. I was not one of them.

                  I’ll bet one of the other 2 films is, “Sands of Iwo Jima,” correct? What the third favorite?

          2. Well, on the bright side, Maryland is a lovely state. I lived there for a little while and was introduced to mountain biking there — can’t remember the name of the place… Loch Raven? It was beautiful, very lush with rich, dark earth. At the time, I was unconcerned with politics; I was in college, so I was unconcerned — and unfamiliar — with the actual world. So know that, at least: your state is beautiful, even if as badly-run as my own state of New York.

            1. It is beautiful. I live in Carroll County which is halfway between Baltimore ( Loch Raven ) and Frederick. It is the ONLY conservative bastian in this state but we were just gerrymandered into Montgomery County which we don’t even share a border with. You know Montgomery County from the news. Do you know the group CASA? They give away the farm to illegal hispanics. They are based in Montgomery County. Any question why our crooked Governer did that?

              1. No, there’s no question as to why your governor did that. Isn’t it depressing, how easily and cheaply these politicians sell out our great country? All across the land, you have politicians opposing commonsense voter ID laws — there’s no reason to do that other than a desire to enable voter fraud, because they know they *can’t* win without fraudulent votes. I can’t imagine being such a person — cheating like that. But then again, I can’t imagine wanting what they want politically, even though I know (at least I think I do) why they want it.

                It just boggles the mind. Can you imagine how the Democrats would do without the constant help of the MSM? In other words, can you imagine how they’d do playing on a level field?

  14. I thought that the republicRATS were all spineless and didn’t want to take on evil and the obamunist head on.

    So they let West go after the obamunist. But none come out to support West-odd.

    He is a brave voice surrounded by a souless scurge

    1. Where have you been? Gov. Sarah Palin has been hounding Obama for 4 years and Gingrich for the past several months. I think they all respect and admire each other. They are on the same team-our team.

    2. I should have said -only person elected to Congress exposing the obamunist.

      Palin, Gingrich and other are doing it also but West is a politician, obviously more worried about the country and not so much about him keeping a cushy job.

      West is also exposing the republicRATS who claim to be on “the same team” but in reality are not.

      1. This is the kind of corruption that Palin and West have been talking about…

        Want to Know Just How Close the Muslim Brotherhood Is to the Obama Admin?

        • Posted on April 26, 2012 at 1:47pm by Tiffany Gabbay
        On Wednesday evening, GBTV unveiled a powerful documentary, “Rumors of War III,” exposing how radical Islamists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, are infiltrating American government at its highest levels. Above is a video clip from the program outlining some of the key players involved.
        The following is an overview of each of the Islamist figures who have found their place — in some way, shape or form — at the Obama administration’s table.
        (Related: Want to Know More About the Islamist Group Exposed in Rumors of War III?)
        Arif Alikahn, Former Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Policy Development: Now a Distinguished Visiting Professor of DHS and Counterterrorism at the National Defense University, Alikahn also served as Deputy Mayor for Public Safety for the City of Los Angeles where he reportedly derailed the LAPD’s efforts to monitor the city’s Muslim community — particularly its radical mosques and madrassas where certain 9/11 hijackers were said to have received support. He is affiliated with MPAC, which has called the terrorist group Hezbollah a “liberation movement.”

        Salam al-Marayati, Founder and Executive Director of Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) : Marayati is an Iraqi immigrant who drew national attention over a decade ago when then-House Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt nominated him to serve on the National Commission on Terrorism. Backlash over al-Marayati’s defense of Hezbollah and other Islamic groups prompted a withdrawal of the nomination. The Center for Security Policy reports that MPAC was formed in 1986 as the Political Action Committee for the Islamic Center for Southern California, one of the largest Wahhabi mosques in the country. While MPAC later fractioned-off, one of the founders of the Islamic Center, Hassan Hathout, was a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood who also spent time in Egyptian prison.

        Mohamed Elibiary, Homeland Security Advisory Committee Member : He is the former president of the Freedom and Justice Foundation, which was billed to ”promote a Centrist Public Policy environment in Texas by coordinating the state level government and interfaith community relations for the organized Texas Muslim community.” He spoke at a 2004 conference in Dallas praising the “Great Islamic Visionary” Ayatollah Khomeini. Most recently he is famous for leaking highly sensitive intelligence documents to a media outlet in Texas.
        Rashad Hussain, State Department Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation: The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report uncovered that Hussain spoke at a conference sponsored by the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate, the Association of Muslim Social Scientists. An internal Brotherhood document dubbed the Social Scientists as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” Hussain also spoke at the Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding of Georgetown University, which reportedly receives Saudi funding and is directed by Muslim Brotherhood advocate, John Esposito. In 2004, Hussain also participated in the Muslim Students Association’s annual conference, a group founded by the Muslim Brotherhood and known as one of its front-groups. The report also asserts that many of the Student Associations’ nearly 600 college chapters “have engaged in extremism and the group closely collaborates with the other Brotherhood fronts.”

        Other Brotherhood sympathizers involved in the administration but who tend to travel beneath the radar include:

        Imam Mohamed Magid, Homeland Security Countering Violent Extremism Working Group Member : He is a Sudanese-born president for the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) with alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. ISNA’s parent is the Muslim Student Association. ISNA completed a $21 million headquarters in Indianapolis using funds raised in part from Muslim Brotherhood.

        Eboo Patel, Obama Administration Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships: Patel spoke at a Muslim Students Association and ISNA convention, appearing on a panel alongside Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood’s founder, and Siraj Wahhaj, who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and has defended the convicted WTC bombers. Wahhaj allegedly advocates the Islamic takeover of America.

        Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: Perhaps most famous for being wife of the disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin appears to have family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. In an interview with FrontPageMag, anti-Islamist author Walid Shoebat explained that Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin, is involved with the Muslim Brotherhood and that Huma’s brother, Hassan, sits in on the board of the Oxford Centre For Islamic Studies (OCIS) where he is a fellow and partners with other board members including “Al-Qaeda associate, Omar Naseef and the notorious Muslim Brotherhood leader Sheikh Youssef Qaradawi; both have been listed as OCIS Trustees.”

  15. Allen West is a man of great courage, integrity and honor. We must all support him. He is telling the truth about obama and we all know it and so does the left.

    1. We better support him, because the Left is gunning for him.

      In this respect, I compare him to Sarah Palin: If you know NOTHING else about them, you know they piss off the right people.
