Allan West: Honor In Iraq, Honor In America

By Gary P Jackson

Lt Col Allan West (retired) is a favorite of ours, as well as our readers. Articles on West are always some of our most popular. He is a strong, no nonsense leader, and is running for Congress in Florida's 22nd District. His campaign has released an extrordinary video where he frankly discusses his actions as a leader while serving in Iraq:

Lt. Col. West is well known as someone who speaks his mind, as a recent post of ours points out. The video above is no different. He tells it like it is.

As a bonus, here's a recent interview Dave Reaboi from Big Peace conducted with Lt. Col. West on a variety of subjects, from the Ground Zero Mosque, Russia and peace through strength, to illegal immigration, and national security:

Reaboi writes:

Last week I caught up with Congressional candidate Lt. Col. Allen West (US Army, Ret.) before he gave the Sunday Sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Boca Raton, Florida. Meeting Allen in a small park built as a monument to Martin Luther King, Jr. was so fitting, as was his sermon that morning at a storied African-American church. (Video of that inspiring speech can be found here.)

It’s fitting, too, that we begin our series of Big Peace Interviews with someone like Allen West, who combines the strategic vision of a policymaker and the experience of a real ‘boots on the ground’ participant in America’s recent battles. Unlike perhaps any other candidate for the House, Lt. Col. West is prepared to engage on a variety of issues of national security– often at length. (What other politician, much less a Congressional candidate, could draw a massive 40,000 views for a sober 20-minute lecture on Afghanistan?)

Allen West is the kind of new, fresh face we need in Congress. He is a true leader and someone who will work to make America better. The kind of man we can all be proud to support. Sarah Palin, who knows a leader when she sees one, endorsed Allen West quite some time ago. So did we.

Currently West is in a head to head battle with his Marxist-democrat competitor, and has turned a once "safe" democrat seat into a likely pick up for Republicans this November. You can help make sure this happens by supporting Allen. Go to his website http://allenwestforcongress.com/ and help any way you can.

Allan West is the sort we need in Congress to help get America back on the right track. Let's make it happen!

You've Been Warned

Where to Find Leadership and Inspiration

Today, I got to partake an in an email thread on Team Sarah which discussed how the current president is tantamount to not having a president at all. The frustration on the part of the thread originator is quite understandable. The man who occupies the White House after all is well-renowned for his complete lack of leadership, utter incompetence, and a general "blame America first" mentality - points that do not require belaboring. Following is my response:
I have to respectfully disagree. We do have a president, except SHE is a private citizen now, sans official title.

Our unofficial President provides leadership and inspiration. She does not polarize as so many of critics say - much rather - she galvanizes us. Her endorsed candidates' track record of winning primaries and special elections is around 86%. She has defined and shaped debates on health care, illegal immigration, national security, cap and tax. She has exposed the man who holds the official title for the incompetent fool that he is and has begun the process of emasculating him. She has lived inside his head rent free for nearly two years now and plays with him as a cat plays with a ball of yarn or a mouse that it caught. The other characters considering presidential runs in 2012 would likely be slaughtered by her quite easily should she choose to run. In any regard, she is proving that the best man for the job of President right now is a woman.

Bottom Line: I stopped looking to Washington for my leadership and inspiration since that November night and started looking to Wasilla. I have not turned back since.
Jedediah Bilah: The Leaders We Choose

Perhaps this thread was providential, because today, Manhattan-based conservative columnist and commentator, Jedediah Bilah wrote "The Leaders We Choose," which was a brief treatise on authenticity and transparency. "We’ve somehow – as a society – come to revere the fake," Bilah wrote. She continued, "So, why does it surprise us when we elect politicians whose pretty words, suave gestures, and fancy presentations are the garnish on empty plates?" Though the current President was not mentioned by name, Bilah was quite likely referring to him. Indeed, Gov. Palin in her VP Convention Speech made several references to the farce that was the Obama candidacy.

Bilah concluded:
"Polished and avant-garde shouldn’t automatically equal presidential. Honesty should. Integrity should. And we – as a society – should make it our job to tear off those spiffy exteriors and find out what’s underneath before we pledge allegiance to anyone or anything."
Our Time of Choosing

Indeed, the man of great oratorical skill - uh, with a teleprompter running - who occupies the White House has a record of miserable failure which speaks for itself. Gov. Palin's record of success outdoing prior successes likewise speaks for itself.

In the coming months, we face our national Time of Choosing. Which do you prefer? More fake? Or a change to Real?


Geller's "The Post-American Presidency" on Drudge

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer's "The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America" was released July 2010 and appeared today in an advertisement on the Drudge Report. Pamela Geller syndicates her Sarah Palin-related content to US for Palin.
Popular conservative blogger Pamela Geller and New York Times bestselling author Robert Spencer sound a wake-up call for Americans to stop the Obama administration from limiting our hard-won freedoms, silencing our democratic voices, and irreparably harming America for generations to come.

America is being tested in a way that she has never been tested before. Since taking the oath of office in January 2009, President Barack Obama has cheered our enemies and demoralized our allies. He is hard at work "remaking" America by destroying the free-market system and nationalizing major segments of our economy, demonizing dissent and restricting freedom of speech, turning against our longtime friends, and above all, subjecting us to the determinations of foreign authorities.

In this timely and urgent battle cry, Pamela Geller, founder of the widely popular website www.AtlasShrugs.com, and New York Times bestselling author Robert Spencer team up to expose the Obama administration’s destructive agenda—largely ignored by the mainstream media—and rally Americans to protect the sovereignty of a country that is under siege by the highest levels of its own government. As Americans see their paychecks shrinking every day, Obama ignores our forefathers’ founding principle: individual rights. Instead, he seeks to level the playing field—to transform both the global and national landscape in favor of our enemies—even if it means cutting America off at the knees. He envisions himself as more than just a president of the United States, but as a shaper of the new world order, an internationalist energetically laying the groundwork for global government: the president of the world.

A vital guide to helping conservatives prepare for the tough battles ahead, The Post-American Presidency critically examines the Obama administration’s ominous and revealing moves against our basic freedoms, particularly as he seizes control of the three engines of the American economy: health care, energy, and education. The Shining City on a Hill has gone dark. But America is not dead. The time is NOW to stand up and fight.
Post-American Presidency can be purchased through US 4 Palin's North Star Group Amazon store.
