by Allen West:

And here’s yet another reminder of how stupid that “coexist” bumper sticker truly is. Hat tip to Gateway Pundit for reporting that a Muslim father is upset because his children were traumatized by a… well, a flier for an Easter egg hunt. Oh, the horror of getting an invitation to join other American children in a time-honored tradition of hunting for colored Easter eggs. Really scary huh? As reported in the Detroit Free Press, some Muslim parents are concerned about public schools in Dearborn handing out flyers to all students advertising an Easter egg hunt, saying it violates the principle of church and state separation.

A flyer with the highly inflammatory “Eggstravaganza!” was given to students this week at three elementary schools in the Dearborn Public Schools district, which has a substantial number of Muslim students. The flyer described an April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn featuring an egg hunt, relay race, and egg toss, and included images of eggs and a bunny.

“It really bothered my two kids,” said parent Majed Moughni, who is Muslim and has two children, ages 7 and 9, in Dearborn elementary schools. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.’ ” Moughni said he’s concerned about “using school teachers paid by public funds … to pass out these flyers that are being distributed by a church. I think that’s a serious violation of separation of church and state.”

First of all, the flyer was approved by the school district. Second, it was an invitation to an event that was not religious or church-related, only took place at churchs ground. Thirdly, I believe Mr. Moughni fails to realize that his religion, Islam, is a totalitarian ideology which has no separation between mosque and state. Islamic Sharia law dictates every aspect of a Muslim’s life and decrees the most heinous of punishments, such as stoning for women — and not with chocolate or marshmallow peep stones, but real ones.

It seems this burgeoning Muslim community in “Dearbornistan” actually believes it can coerce the remaining non-Muslims there to live in fear and cower to their intolerance. Sorry, sir. Ain’t happenin’.

Maybe Mr. Moughni can explain why the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) — an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorist funding case and subsidiary organization of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood — is suppressing the first amendment right of free speech and free expression in the showing of the documentary “Honor Diaries” which we have featured here.

This is how it happens America. There are those who enact the Islamic principle of the hijra — “migration” — in order not to assimilate but infiltrate and eventually dominate the host country culture. We see it happening across the Atlantic Ocean in Europe. It becomes a spreading cancer that uses the host country’s freedoms and principles to turn it upon itself — as Mr. Moughni attempts to use “separation of church and state” as an argument.

CAIR tries to shut down briefing on American jihadi networks

 

Sheriff Jenkins

Sheriff Jenkins

Allen West:

Some might say these are all isolated incidents. But connect these dots: this week we reported on the activists tied to the Muslim Brotherhood hosting a Democrat fundraiser. The Muslim Brotherhood’s own Explanatory Memorandum says “their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers.” Our own president said, “I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

So is it any surprise that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) tried pressure tactics, threats and even a $15,000 cash bribe to shut down a recent counter-terrorism training program for Virginia law enforcement. As reported by World Net Daily, Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins did not stand down, and the training took place as scheduled – albeit with extra security.

Talk about audacity. CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism funding case in America’s history. Where was the Virginia Attorney General? Where was U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder? (Oh, never mind).

Washington-based CAIR, an Islamic lobbying group shunned by the FBI due to its ties to terrorist groups, launched a weeks-long campaign to intimidate Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins into canceling the three-day program, titled “Understanding and Investigating Jihadi Networks in America.”

The lead trainer, former special FBI agent John Guandolo, presented evidence of the radical Muslim Brotherhood’s operations in the U.S. and their jihadi support network, along with a large amount of evidence demonstrating CAIR was created and continues to be an entity of Hamas, a U.S.-designated terror group.

Guandolo detailed for officers how this dangerous Islamic network in America radicalizes, trains and logistically supports jihadi operations in the United States and those launched from the U.S. against overseas targets.

World Net Daily also noted “CAIR has cultivated a number of political supporters, mainly among leading Democrats in Washington, including senior White House officials. Secret Service entry logs show CAIR officials have visited the White House several times during the Obama administration.”

Ladies and gents, first of all, please call Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins and applaud him for his stand. And if any of you reside in Virginia, please bombard the office of your State Attorney General and ask him “Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot”? As well, make the calls to the office of House Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul to hold an investigative hearing.

My fellow Americans, this is deadly serious. Further, since we appear to have an administration that embraces, supports and enables our enemy how can those actions not be described as “high crimes and misdemeanors?” And as for you progressive socialists, how exactly will you defend this?

A Nation with No Options

20120619_potus-putin-550x384by LTC ALLEN WEST (US ARMY RET)

As we watch the events unfolding in Ukraine there is one theme I continue to hear presented by the pundits in the news media – the United States has no options. It is unconscionable that we find ourselves in a foreign policy situation where there are no viable courses of action to be implemented. What is even more disturbing is that Russian President Vladimir Putin was fully aware of this going into his standoff.

America, the erstwhile superpower, finds itself outmaneuvered in a resurging Cold War-type showdown. It seems former GOP presidential candidate Governor Mitt Romney was right after all. I just wish he had defended his assertion with a tad more vigor.

Thanks to the announcement by US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, I do not see us committing any military forces in support of Ukraine. And Pentagon officials confirm they are not working on any contingency plans in that regard. Hagel’s force reduction announcement was made the beginning of last week – it didn’t take the Russian president long to see a gap to exploit.

We telegraphed our intent starting in 2008 allowing Putin to make his incursion into the former Soviet state of Georgia.

History has an incredible way of repeating itself and teaching lessons. Consider in the late 1930s with German Chancellor Adolf Hitler and his expansion under the guise of caring for ethnic Germans in the Sudetenland. An appeasing world under the faux leadership of Sir Neville Chamberlain gave him a green light – not much later Czechoslovakia fell under the blitzkrieg, the lightning war.

Vladimir Putin, a former KGB agent, has opined that the greatest strategic failure of the 20th century was the collapse of the former Soviet Union. Should there have been any question about what Putin’s true strategic objectives would be?

The failure to support new democracies in Eastern Europe has had a chilling effect, especially the cancellation of the missile defense shield by President Obama.

My recommendation would have been to conduct more military-to-military exchanges and training deployments with these new countries. We should have looked at developing power projection platforms from these respective countries as we collapsed the old Cold War forward deployed posture in the countries of the old Europe.

We should have brought Ukraine into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) some time ago as a protective measure.

We have an American economy that is grossly in debt and disarray reflecting a lack of an economic strategy that contributes to a diminished military strategy. It was former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mullen who stated that the greatest national security threat for America was our growing national debt.

If America were in a better economic position — and the excuse of Bush’s fault is empty — perhaps we could provide economic relief to Ukraine. There is no doubt the country needs a boost, and where there is a vacuum it will be filled by someone. This is what Putin is banking on. The European Union is also hard pressed economically and the strongest financial state, Germany, has been depleted by supporting financial bailouts of other EU member states.

Putin also has vast natural gas resources to use as part of his regional extortion. Here in America we have the opportunity to produce, consume, and export great amounts of energy resources. As a matter of fact, America is staring a great opportunity in the eye with the Keystone XL pipeline. If we had the support of the Obama administration to open up more federal lands to natural gas production and stop the insidious war on coal, America could provide energy security relief to Ukraine and others.

And energy security enables our economic security, which overall strengthens our national security.  The bottom line is it creates options. Energy security makes a nation a superpower.

Speaker Boehner, find the courage to establish a Benghazi select committee

jw010814a

By Allen West:

This morning I had a chance to visit with a former colleague, someone for whom I have the utmost respect, Virginia Representative Frank Wolf. Rep. Wolf is the author of House Resolution 36, which calls for a Benghazi select committee with subpoena powers to formally and singularly focus on the incidents surrounding the US Consulate attack in Benghazi Libya.

Rep. Wolf shared with me today that he now has 182 cosponsors, all from the House GOP. One has to ask if the Democrats are more aligned with their political party or truth? The 182 cosponsors represent approximately 80 percent of the House Republican conference, and according to former Speaker Dennis Hastert, meet the standard of the “Hastert Rule,” a majority of the majority. Yet this piece of legislation is blocked from being brought to the House floor for a vote.

Rep. Wolf and I mused — actually we both became infuriated — considering how in the State of New Jersey Democrats have established a select committee and are pursuing subpoenas against Governor Chris Christie over traffic lanes being closed. Is it possible that traffic lane closures are more important than the abandonment, murder, and lying that hangs like a dark cloud over the events of September 11, 2012? Have we become so degraded that we do not see the utterly despicable hypocrisy of the Democrats in New Jersey and the liberal progressive media?

Over the weekend, we witnessed the arrogant dismissal of President Obama, who has already referred to Benghazi as a “phony scandal,” as he chided Bill O’Reilly, stating that Benghazi, among other nefarious actions, are just talking points driven by Fox News. The belligerence of President Obama has been enabled by a House GOP leadership reluctant to stop the diluted process of five different committees who must ask for information by way of FOIA requests. Just yesterday before a House Intelligence Committee hearing, Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, and others were asked when will someone be held responsible for the incidents surrounding Benghazi? The question was met with nearly 10 seconds of silence.

Losing an American Ambassador is not the new normal. Abandoning brave Americans to die is not the new normal. Supplying arms to Islamic terrorist and jihadists and running a covert weapons program is treasonous and represents high crimes and misdemeanors.

Col. West: Benghazi can’t be ‘the new normal’

awBy Liz Thatcher and Garth Kant:

“We abandoned four Americans who were under attack, and that’s not who we are as a people. That’s not who we are as a nation,” a somber, but determined, Col. Allen West told WND.

“We, as a people, have to stand up, because we can not settle for this and come to believe the new normal is that an ambassador can call up and say ‘We’re under attack’ and have elected officials do nothing about it.”

West was in the nation’s capital to speak at the Justice for Benghazi Rally on the one-year anniversary of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, and the twelfth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.

The former Florida congressman told the crowd President Obama lacked a sense of “moral obligation” about the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and security personnel who “ran to the sound of the guns, while others on that night ran to bed.”

President Obama’s representatives have repeatedly refused to divulge what he was doing the night of the attacks.

“Furthermore, we have elected officials who don’t want to get to the truth and they continue to promulgate this cover-up with a very complicit media,” West told WND.

“As long as we have heartfelt patriots” such as those who gathered at the Justice for Benghazi Rally, “we will get to the bottom of this,” he added.

And, he promised, “We will force Congress to have that select committee” on Benghazi, so “we can get the truth.”

Sharing a Foxhole with Allen West

By Frank Gaffney:

Allen West is a man with whom I would gladly share a foxhole. He’s been in many of them over the years – both as a decorated combat veteran and more recently as a Member of Congress from Florida. And when the going gets tough, he is usually the very first of the tough to get going, inspiring and leading others to do the same.

In addition to his natural leadership abilities, Rep. West has an extraordinary grasp of history, its lessons and the importance of not repeating our predecessors’ mistakes. His ability to communicate these insights is similarly exceptional. Last year, in honoring House Armed Services Chairman Howard ‘Buck’ McKeon, we at the Center for Security Policy could find no one better than Allen West to deliver a sterling, improvised benediction. That brief speech—encapsulating two centuries of American military history—is a monument of the power of forthrightness in advocating for peace through strength in the Reagan tradition.

Perhaps most importantly, Allen West has a well-calibrated and utterly dependable moral compass. Most notably, he has addressed with a clarity and integrity virtually unknown these days in official Washington about the threat posed by shariah – the totalitarian, supremacist Islamic ideology that animates and justifies jihad – and by its adherents. He has taken to task those in positions of power who, by their passivity or active support, are enabling the steady advance of such enemies, both abroad and here. This year, Rep. West rated as a ‘Champion of National Security’ in our Center for Security Policy Congressional Scorecard with a rating of 100 percent.

For all these reasons, Allen West has millions of devoted followers around the country. But he also has powerful enemies. And defeating him in this year’s election was a top priority of Democratic operatives and Islamists alike.

See Congressman Allen West Debate a Democratic Drunk (VIDEO)

by  Daniel Greenfield at Front Page:

If you haven’t had your fill of one-sided debates yet this week, here’s Allen West facing off in a debate against Patrick Murphy, a war veteran against a veteran of barfights. This is a contest that Democrats have put a lot of money into in order to get rid of Allen West. And Patrick Murphy is what they got for all that money.

Murphy proved to be an expert on current political events.

West interrupted his challenger twice during the forum. When Murphy said the U.S. is “spending billions of dollars a week in Iraq and Afghanistan,” West said “We’re out of Iraq.”

Champion barfighter Patrick Murphy claims that the “extremism” of the Tea Party and its non-alcoholic nature turned him off being a Republican.

“I used to be a Republican, but I got so tired of the extremism of the tea party,” said Murphy, who switched to the Democratic Party in 2011.

West later addressed the extremism charge in his closing remarks. West said he’s guided by the nation’s founding documents and the principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual sovereignty, free markets and a strong national defense.

“If anyone says that those are extremist positions, well, I guess you’re just going to have to continue to call me extremist, because I will stand with the founding fathers on that,” West said.

Allen West to UN: ‘The Angel of Death in the Form of an American Bald Eagle Will Visit You and Wreak Havoc’

Fox Nation:

In a Facebook  post made today, Rep. Allen West weighed in  on what his speech to the United Nations would’ve been like…

In his speech today to the United Nations,  President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are  attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist  attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on  the 11th anniversary of 9-11. He continues to offer up apologies instead of  defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and  expression. There is no message to this silly video trailer, and it is beneath  the dignity and esteem of the Office of the President of the United States to  mention it at all. When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural  suicide. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant. I know about the UN  Resolution 1618 which would make any statement deemed by the Organization of  Islamic Countries (OIC) “offensive’ to Islam a crime…..NOT ON MY WATCH  FELLAS!

My statement to the United Nations  would have been, “The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies  and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an  American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your  existence”

 

Allen West Discusses Islamist Infiltration, Bachmann’s Case Backed Up?

By Javier Manjarres

At one his monthly townhall meetings in Broward County, Florida, Congressman Allen West was asked about the ‘Muslim Infiltration’ of the U.S. Government, an issue that has been in the news of late, after Congresswoman Michele Bachmann questioned Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin of her possible associations with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Bachmann did not accuse Abedin of being part of the Muslim Brotherhood, only her immediate family’s direct associations with the terrorist organization.

Frontpage’s Robert Spencer adds this-

And in Abedin’s case, there are ample reasons for raising these questions. Her father, Syed Z. Abedin, was a professor in Saudi Arabia who founded the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs, an organization supported by the Muslim World League, a Brotherhood organization. Her mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, the Brotherhood’s adjunct organization for women. The Brotherhood itself is in its own words, according to a captured internal document, dedicated to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.”-Robert Spencer (Source-Bachmann/Abedin)

Congressman Allen West confirmed Bachmann’s suspicions of infiltration, actually, West has been saying it for a long time, and the Democrats have been quick to call him an extremist for doing so.

West states that he has not read Bachmann’s letter, but makes her case that there needs to be deep security checks in government, and that there is indeed a sinister effort by Islamists to integrate themselves into the U.S. Government.

The Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt shows Arab Spring is radical Islamic nightmare

By Congressman Allen West on Sunday, June 24, 2012 at 10:59am

A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama Administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt. We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident. The Muslim Brotherhood claimed they would not run a presidential candidate. Clearly the Arab Spring is nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare. Now we need to unequivocally reiterate our support to the Coptic Christians and Israel. What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama Administration. I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.

‘Repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood’: Allen West Calls for Obama to Immediately Cut All American Foreign Aid to Egypt Following Election Results

By Madeleine Morganstern at The Blaze:

Congressman Allen West (R-Fla.) on Sunday called for President Barack Obama to immediately cut off all American foreign aid to Egypt and to denounce the results of its presidential election after Muslim Brotherhood-backed candidate Mohammed Morsi’s victory.

In a brief post on his Facebook page, West said Sunday’s results were reminiscent of the 1979 Iranian revolution that saw Islamists installed as leaders of the country.

“A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt,” West wrote. “We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident.”

Calling the Arab Spring “nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare,” West said the U.S. needs to “unequivocally reiterate” its support to Coptic Christians in the region and to Israel.

“What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama administration,” West said. “I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.
