An Allen West comeback?
Daily Caller, by Alexis Levinson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/25/2014 11:24:30 AM

Allen West may have lost his seat in Congress, but the Florida Republican is not done with elected politics. West told radio host Jesse Lee Peterson Thursday that another Allen West candidacy would likely be coming in 2016. “I will definitely come back,” said West, who lost his seat in 2012 to now-Congressman Patrick Murphy by fewer than 3,000 votes. This year, for the midterm elections, West said, he was going to work to help other people get elected, specifically: “more military, minority conservatives.” “In the 2016 cycle, we’ll look to getting back in and running myself,” he said in

Comments:
Things sure would have been different if this honorable, brave conservative man had been our first black president. What an utter contrast he is to the destructive lawless Marxist we now have in the White House.

I´ll cheerfully contribute to Col. West again, but why wait until ´16?

Does he think there will ever be a more promising year for the GOP than ´14? Or that Presidential election years are BETTER for conservative insurgents than off-year elections?

Col. West is appearing on Fox News quite often now, which will help in coming years. I will work to support him here in Florida.

I think the Dems are a little worried about the future because Col. West and Dr. Ben Carson are appearing on programs - both radio and TV - quite often now. Pretty soon it might sink in to more African Americans that there are two parties and that the African Americans they see on TV and kinda like are in some other party than the Demonrat Party.

I know Mr. West is the Right´s Darling (token), candidate, and I don´t live in Florida, but . . .,

I haven´t forgotten his servitude to Boehner by dissing his fellow Tea Party members. What did he call them? Schizophrenics, as I recall.

As a credit to Boehner, I think, he DID keep his promise to Col. West. Remember all the ads asking for donations for West, thereafter? You should, many of them appeared on this site. I´m sure they were paid for by the RNC.

#13, back in July 2011, when West announced he was voting for Boehner´s debt ceiling plan, various Tea Party groups announced that they would try to primary him. West responded by pointing out that one day he was a Tea Party hero" and three or four days later, he was a Tea Party defector," and he wasn´t going to get involved in that kind of schizophrenia.

I can see his point.

Gee, #15, West proved his political mettle with that. He pledged to vote against increasing the debt limit, then flipped. It was stupid on his part as there was no political reason to flip. Worse, he could never coherently explain why - one may watch his tortured attempts on Youtube. Some thought his vote was to distance himself from the TP to broaden his appeal. He lost re-election. I remain unimpressed.

Colonel West is not perfect. However, just look how high a standard Republicans have for someone "new" on the scene. I have no doubts that as we see Dr. Carson more and more, we will find he too is not perfect. Meanwhile, generally, how many Republicans extend courtesy and endless benefits of the doubt to lame brain incumbents who have made worse mistakes than Colonel West did? We support mediocrity in this party. The GOP NEEDS Colonel West far far more than he needs them. We have a gift in this man. I will support him.

WTP are sending prayers up that you will find a path to begin again on your journey forward. God bless you, Sir. Take it to the top this time. Many out here in fly over country will stand beside you. A remarkable man of deep character. Thank you for your service and continuing to fight for our beloved country.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama.

He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
