Allen West goes to D.C.

Last night, my new Congressman-elect (I love typing that!) Allen West gave a moving speech to the West Palm Beach Republican Club, in which he honored veterans, upheld American Exceptionalism and vowed to stand firm for the US Constitution once sworn into office in Washington D.C.

I’d had the good fortune of unexpectedly bumping into Allen as he strode through the parking lot toward the entrance of the Bear Lakes Country Club, when I had to return to my car to retrieve my Flip-corder. He thanked me sincerely for working so hard on his campaign as I gave him a hug and my congratulations (something I’d been unable to do at his victory party, due to the size of the crowd). Truly, this is a man of honor and integrity.

It’s hard to describe just how thrilled South Florida is to have this decorated war hero and and patriot representing us, but you’ll get an idea of the scope our our genuine love  and affection  for Lt. Col. Allen West in the two videos below.

God bless Allen West as he begins a new phase of service to his country. And God bless all of our US Veterans!

South Florida Supports Allen West!

After receiving a tip-off late last night on Facebook about Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s planned protest of Lt. Colonel Allen West’s candidacy today, I headed over to his campaign office in Deerfield Beach. Yes, the Debbie Wasserman Shultz who represents FL  Congressional District 20 and is herself running for re-election, took it upon herself to arrange an anti-West rally on the sidewalk alongside Federal Highway.

As West supporters, we were respectfully requested not to engage the Klein crew or the local media, lest a confrontation erupt that could potentially damage the campaign. Well aware of the left’s hateful demagoguery and deceitful tactics, I’d never planned to engage any of them in conversation — a losing proposition among people brandishing signs like “Keep Abortion Legal” and “Florida doesn’t want the Tea Party or Allen West”, anyway.

Clearly in the throes of desperation, the Klein campaign (and DNC operatives) have published Allen West’s social security number; aired ridiculous commercials using Tea Party footage of West declaring himself a “right wing extremist” (hello liberals, it’s called sarcasm, and it was done in reaction to Janet Napolitano’s DHS); made false allegations of West belonging to a radical biker gang and repeatedly (in the case of debates) linked his name with Sarah Palin and “Terri Schiavo issues” — all in an effort to paint him as some sort of Bible-thumping, wild-eyed Christian lunatic who is unfit for public office.

Today that theme continued with the pro-abortion placards and handmade signs claiming that West is somehow “anti-women”. Mind you, to the best of my knowledge, he hasn’t even made abortion an issue in the campaign (though he  is pro-life), but if you were a Klein supporter, would you really want to focus on your guy’s support for highly unpopular legislation like Obamacare, Cap and Trade and stimulus?

In their classic, diversionary and fear-mongering style, all the liberal sacred cows were on display this afternoon in Deerfield Beach  — along with plenty of Allen West supporters, who had a few thoughts of their own. Enjoy!

Update:  Apparently, Palm Beach County tax collector Anne Gannon joined Wasserman-Shultz in the 20-30 people protest. Here’s the Sun-Sentinel’s coverage.

Update: Here’s the second video, featuring a Democrat for West.

Finally: Last Video of Lt. Col. Allen West’s Debate with Incumbent Democrat Ron Klein

Hard to believe I know, but I’ve finally created the last movie from video footage of the West-Klein debate this past Tuesday — with the addition of a short clip of my friend and indefatigable activist, Jessica Johnson Dornblaser at the next day’s protest in Fort Lauderdale. While we stood outside with a few other patriots holding signs, Ron Klein spoke at a breakfast for commercial lenders. As you’ll note in the video, he apparently didn’t have much to say, as Jessica spotted him striding quickly to his car in the parking lot just moments after the festivities got underway.

One positive sign: We managed to speak with a few lenders who’d also left soon after Klein, none of whom were supporters. One guy told me it was all he could do not to scream out the names Fannie and Freddie when Klein did his typical “banks are evil” shtick as part of his presentation.  My guess is that all of them will be voting Republican next month.

Enjoy the video, complemented by the beautiful voice of my friend Ava Aston and the soulful melody of her song, We The People!
