Guardian of the Republic…Allen West


Over the course of the past few decades, Allen West has had many titles bestowed on him, among them Lt. Colonel, U.S. Representative, “Dad,” and Scourge of the Far Left. He rose from humble beginnings in Atlanta where his father instilled in him a code of conduct that would inform his life ever after. Throughout his years leading troops, raising a loving family, serving as Congressman in Florida’s 22nd district, and emerging as one of the most authentic voices in conservative politics, West has never compromised the core values on which he was raised: family, faith, tradition, service, honor, fiscal responsibility, courage, freedom.

Today, these values are under attack as never before, and as the far Left intensifies its assaults, few have been as vigorous as West in pushing back. He refuses to let up, calling out an Obama administration that cares more about big government than following the Constitution, so-called black “leaders” who sell out their communities in exchange for pats on the head, and a segment of the media that sees vocal black conservatives as threats to be shot down.

Now more than ever, the American republic needs a guardian: a principled, informed conservative who understands where we came from, who can trace the philosophical roots of our faith and freedom, and who has a plan to get America back on track. West isn’t afraid to speak truth to power, and in this book he shares the experiences that shaped him and the beliefs he would die to defend.

ALLEN WEST was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia — in the same neighborhood where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached. He is the third of four generations of military members in his family. During his twenty-two year Army career he commanded troops and deployed to several combat zones. He was elected to Congress in 2010, representing the 22nd district of Florida for one term. A frequent commentator on Fox News and a sought after speaker, he lives with his family in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Like Leeches they live amongst us….The Congressional Elite


This info in not new, has been posted on the net in many places and many times….BUT a reminder is not always a bad thing:
===========================================
Found this interesting, Children of congress members do not have to pay
back their college student loans. How nice!

Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family
members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get
national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add
this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States filed lawsuits against the Federal Government –

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government
for imposing
unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene
a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it
on.

This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many
citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same
pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from
many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of
prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under
those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform…
in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an
elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat,
Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in
three days,
most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is
one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States
that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and,
Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives
that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .”

Congressman Confirms High-level U.S.-Israel Spat over Iran


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blew up at the U.S. ambassador last month because he was “at wit’s end” over what he sees as the Obama administration’s lack of clarity on Iran’s nuclear program, a U.S. congressman who was at the meeting said.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, a Republican, made his first public comments about the late August meeting in Israel in an interview with Michigan’s WJR radio on Tuesday.

His disclosure comes only hours before President Barack Obama will at the Democratic National Convention to accept the party’s nomination as its candidate in the November election, in which the level of the Obama administration’s support for Israel has become a contentious topic.
“Right now the Israelis don’t believe that this administration is serious when they say all options are on the table, and more importantly neither do the Iranians. That’s why the program is progressing,” Rogers said.

Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful energy purposes.

Israel is facing growing international pressure not to unilaterally attack Iran’s nuclear infrastructure and the United States has made clear it opposes any such strike.

Rogers said if the United States does not show Israel more clarity on where it draws “red lines” on Iran’s nuclear program, then Israel might conduct a strike.

“If I were betting my house today, I would guess that they probably will do it if we don’t have a change in more clear red lines from the United States,” he said.

The State Department had no immediate comment. A spokesman for Israel’s embassy in Washington declined to comment.

The spat between Netanyahu and U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro appears to confirm a deep chasm over how to deal with Iran, which the two allies have tried to play down publicly.

Obama has vowed to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, but says there is still time for sanctions and diplomacy to work. The White House says it has brokered international oil and banking sanctions that are far tougher on Iran than previous administrations achieved.

The original purpose of the meeting was for Netanyahu and Rogers to discuss intelligence cooperation and other matters. But it “devolved” into a sharp exchange in which Netanyahu confronted Shapiro with a lot of frustration about the lack of clarity on the administration’s position on Iran’s nuclear program, Rogers said.

“The uncertainty about where the United States’ position is on those questions has created lots of problems and anxiety that I think doesn’t serve the world well and doesn’t serve peace well,” Rogers said.

In an interview with an Israeli television station on Sunday, Shapiro dismissed an Israeli newspaper account of the heated closed-door exchange as “a very silly story” that did not reflect what actually happened in the meeting where the conversations were “friendly and professional.” Netanyahu has not commented on the exchange, which was first reported by the daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.

Israel has its own undeclared nuclear arsenal that is believed to contain as many as 200 warheads.
Rogers said the Israeli and U.S. timelines differed on how quickly Iran could put a nuclear weapon on a missile, if it decided to move in that direction.

Netanyahu believes “if they decide to do the dash it could be four weeks to eight weeks,” while U.S. intelligence analysts believe it would “take a little longer than that,” Rogers said. “But the problem is nobody really knows for sure.”
