There IS Room in the Conservative Tent

In last Friday’s “Fume,” I went off on group of Rutgers University “professors” who are circulating a petition to disinvite Condi Rice from their graduation program this year.

In that segment of the “Friday Fume,” I placed her accomplishments in a nutshell and, it takes a BIG shell to hold them all.

I said it then and I’ll say it again…Condi Rice, based on her intelligence, her drive, her steadfast refusal to be held back by preconceptions of her race or her gender may well be THE most accomplished woman in the HISTORY of the United States and, arguably, she is more accomplished than PERSON, man OR woman, than any other in our history.

Here’s what I DIDN’T say in that piece last Friday because, it’s not funny…It’s a point so serious, it deserves separation from the snarky musings of the “Fume.”

I suspect, that should you boil it all down, the REAL reason those “professors” at Rutgers don’t want Rice to speak at this year’s commencement has nothing whatsoever to do with her support for the war in Iraq.

Nothing at all.

It does, however, in my opinion, have everything to do with the color of her politics.

Allow me to explain.

Over the weekend, Dr. Ben Carson spoke at CPAC and, while his tearing down of the walls of political correctness drew a standing ovation at the conference, it drew unveiled racial hatred from liberals.

Michelle Malkin, a liberal nightmare in her own right, provides an invaluable service to those who seek the truth….

Benghazi – Did Obama ORDER a HIT???

Benghazi.

There’s not a chance in the world that we’re forgetting about Benghazi amid all the other revelations of abuses of power swirling around this corrupt administration like dirty water going down the toilet.

Not a CHANCE.

Yesterday, an important hearing that didn’t draw much attention drew mine.

While most are centered on the talking points, I have always insisted there are other, VERY important questions which need to be asked and answered.

Among them…WHO ISSUED THE STAND DOWN ORDERS???

Yesterday, we may well have drawn too close for Obama’s comfort to that answer.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, was in the hot seat yesterday and when the topic of the stand down orders reared its head, Dempsey’s response was telling.

First, he said there were NO stand down orders.

Weekend Edition: Allen West – No Surrender

The election is over.

It’s done and the winners have been announced.

Really?

It’s not over. Not yet. Not in the state of Florida. There, the election continues but, not in the way it most certainly should.

It’s disgraceful.

Congressman Allen West waits.

In fact, Congressman West demanded a recount after it was announced that he had lost his bid for reelection. The margin of his loss was greater than the number which would trigger an automatic recount and a West Palm Beach Florida Judge, David Crow, denied a motion from West’s attorneys to impound ballots and voting machines from CD 18 and West’s “apparent” narrow loss to Patrick Murphy.

Why a motion to impound the voting machines and ballots?

The answer is both simple and staggering.

There are thousands of votes yet to be counted in Florida’s Congressional District 18. That’s Congressman West’s district.

8,000 or so votes yet to count.

Those uncounted votes belong to a very important group of voters.

Those are absentee ballots, cast by our military and they sit, in boxes, not being counted.

This is beyond disgusting. This is beyond absurd.

It’s a travesty of the process upon which this country was founded.

The travesty goes even deeper though.

A Question for the Anybody But Mitt Crowd

Over a considerable amount of time and through the ability to do copious amounts of research, I have become reasonably good at figuring out political quandaries.

I don’t always get it exactly right but, I honestly wish I weren’t right as often as I am.

Finding the answers to questions regarding political ideology, political history, how dots are connected and the end games of certain politicians have become a passion.

I’d like to think I’ve become pretty good at it.

Currently, however, the answer to a most perplexing political question eludes me.

I’m asking for your help.

There is no cash prize involved, like the sum given to the brilliant mind which created the $50.00 light bulb but rest assured, you’ll have my unending gratitude.

Please, somebody…Explain to me exactly how…

Splitting the 2012 presidential vote between Romney, Gingrich, Paul, Cain, Palin, Johnson, Dummett, Tittle and any other number of known or unknown candidates of personal choice will defeat Obama.

Conservatives agree, after all, that Obama needs to be defeated and that if he isn’t, the situation is dire.

In that, at least, there IS agreement.

Thus, the quandary…

Allen West a Top 10 CREDO Target

Well, we all knew the Tea Party and Tea Party candidates would be the direct targets of liberal/socialists after the 2010 midterm shellacking didn’t we? As election season 2012 heats up, those liberal/socialist organizations are starting to shift into a higher gear.

There is an organization called CREDO Super PAC out there with a Top 10 list and they are actively targeting Tea Party candidates.

A quick look at their website via their efforts against Congressman Allen West provided a wealth of information.

At first blush, this looked quite like a union-based group. Many of their “protests” against West are set to take place at unionesque venues. They have even opened an office at 100 Village Square Crossing, Suite 104, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410.

Naturally, CREDO and the Take Down liberal/socialists have a broader scope than just Congressman West. They have a national Top 10.

In 2009, the above names were listed in a newsletter.

All of them were democrats serving in the 111th congress.

There were, at that time, 70 on the list.

11 of them, John Conyers, Tammy Baldwin, Jerrold Nadler, Luis Gutierrez, Melvin Watt, Maxine Waters, Hank Johnson, Steve Cohen, Barbara Lee, Robert Wexler and Linda Sanchez, sat on the House Judiciary Committee. Conyers, at the time, was the Chairman of that committee

Not only were the 70 listed in 2009, Members of congress and democrats, each one also belonged to the group from whom the emailed newsletter was issued.

The Socialist Party of America.

The emailed newsletter was sent in October 2009 and survived in their archives until it went public in August of 2010. At that point, it was scrubbed but not before someone grabbed it and posted it to Scribd. Chances are, they god blasted by Obama and his puppet master, George Soros for including the list in their email. They have not done so again.

I first published this list nearly a year ago.

I am more than happy to do it again.

How many of you have been ridiculed or dismissed for referring to democrats as socialists?

Now then…Who thinks Congressman West doesn’t know what he’s talking about when HE says there are 80 some Members of Congress who are communists?

Screw Business as Usual…A Fire and Brimstone Strategy

It’s going to be an ugly campaign. We all know it and we’re ready for it but it’s going to the ugliest and nastiest and dirtiest campaign in history.

Regardless of whom the GOP nominee turns out to be, why NOT take the early lead?

If the GOP Nominee takes this advice, it will send a clear message to the Republican establishment that conservatives aren’t going to do business as usual any more. It would shake the establishment and pull together conservative voters.

Even if the establishment candidate, Romney, becomes the nominee and adopts this measure, HE would pull together the conservative vote.

Here is a little something else this would do…It would shake the Obama campaign to its core.

As soon as the 1,144 delegates are in hand, WHOEVER garners them either at the convention or before…put this into motion.

Rather than a leisurely march toward a VP nominee or a surprise VP announcement like we got in 2008, vet the possible VPs NOW and stand ready to announce the running mate in a nationally televised press conference the day after the delegates are in hand.

Marines vs Dead Taliban. Guess Who Wins the Pissing Contest?

Okay. So some Marines got caught on video, peeing on the corpses of dead Taliban soldiers.

Okay.

I mean…Okay.

Was it the right thing to do? The moral thing to do?

No.

Should pundits, journalists and others be all wound up over it?

No.

Those who have a problem with it, a real problem, have probably never been shot at by the Taliban. They probably have never  had their friends killed by the Taliban and they probably haven’t had friends permanently disabled by the Taliban either.

Allen West had this to say, in The Weekly Standard, on the matter and as a man who spent 22 years in the Army, I believe he knows exactly what he’s talking about.

Calling Allen West…It’s Time for Real Leadership

It’s time for a change. A leadership change. Yes, I know there are still 10 months to go before the election of 2012 but seriously…Do we have any time to waste? Can we afford to just ride it out?

No.

We must act and act now.

We have a true leadership vacuum and we need to make things right.

I am NOT talking about Obama or the White House here – though there is a pronounced lack of leadership there, too.

I’m talking about something more immediate.

John Boehner must be replaced and soon.

Very soon.

After the House Members went their way just days before Christmas, John Boehner initiated a conference call to inform the Members that the House would approve, unanimously, a 2-month extension of the payroll tax breaks.

2 months?

Really??? How exactly are businesses supposed to plan if they have to do it only 2 months at a time?

How are families supposed to plan on a 2 month system?

How exactly does a 2 month extension boost a sluggish economy or solve any economic issue?

It doesn’t.

20 Questions with Congressman Allen West

Yesterday, The National Patriot spent some quality time with Congressman Allen West.

We cannot thank the Congressman enough for taking the time from his always busy schedule to speak with us regarding a wide range of issues. We would also like to thank Communications Director, Angela Sachitano,  in Congressman West’s office for all her help in arranging this exclusive interview.

In part 2, I ask Congressman West about the National Defense Authorization Act and, as always, Congressman West answers in a straight forward manner and quotes from the bill itself. This has become one of the most contentious issues of the last several weeks and one on which many have been misinformed.

Once again, we Thank Congressman Allen West.

Please enjoy, “20 Questions” with Congressman Allen West!!
