Allen West Hinting At
Presidential Run? ‘Remember,
Abraham Lincoln Only Served
One Term In Congress Too’

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/2/2012 7:16:26 PM

U.S. Rep. Allen West came to Washington as part of the 2010 wave of Tea Party-backed candidates. He became known as aggressive and outspoken, but his tenure in Congress was short-lived. He recently conceded a close race for Florida´s 18th District. West sits down with host Michel Martin to reflect on his term and his outlook for the future. MARTIN: So what´s next for you? WEST: Look, you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That´s my goal.

If Colonel Allen West runs for President or Florida Govenor, I´ll campaign for him and vote for him, too! I´d like to see him escort that incompetent Obama out now and West be President now. I am exoressing my opinion as a constitutional right as an American citizen, before Obama wants to declare a part of the U.S. Costitutional Amendment illegal, he shouldn´t be able to do that, but I don´t doubt Obama would try it, and the airhead liberal journalists would support Obama doing that.

West is a terrific guy, but a one-term Rep with a history of public statements with which the media will strangle him hasn´t got a chance. And perhaps that´s the way it ought to be.

No more vanity candidacies, PLEASE!

Lincoln - the only Congressman who ended up in the WH had a run for Senate in between - that was the time of the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates. He lost - back when state legislatures chose the winner. Lots of favorable publicity though.

Otherwise, Congressmen only muddy up the water during the primaries and, if 2012 is used as an example, help make the eventual winner (who is usually a Governor or less often a Senator) weakened, battered and low on cash.

Congressman are inherently weak candidates as they are most likely unable to win a more desirable Governorship or Senate slot in a state-wide race. Among Dems they are vanity candidates who represent the unelectable left (Dennis the Menace for example). Avoid.

#2 - Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846 and pledged to serve only one term. Not sure why. He probably would have lost re-election anyway because he opposed the Mexican-American War and he was the only Whig in Illinois´ Congressional delegation.

West has been the target of the current administration, of Democrats, and of Republican RINOs.

There must be a reason.

He is so very intelligent and so very articulate and always has all the facts he needs to support his positions. Like Christie, he is unafraid to respond directly to attacks. I think he´d be a competent campaigner and an excellent President.

As an old angry white male whose bigotry and racist tenancies are obvious since I didn´t vote for The Won, I´ll make an exception and support Col. West.

Seriously, the man is unique in American politics because he calls it as he sees it and is a true patriot. Therefore, as a previous poster indicated, the MSM will twist his words from his previous sound bites in the hope of destroying a black who isn´t on the liberal plantation. It´s a shame, but I would still support him with my money and time because I believe in him.

House panel asks DOJ to consider
criminal prosecution for Lerner
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/9/2014 12:19:22 PM     Post Reply
A House committee voted Wednesday to formally ask the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecution against ex-IRS official Lois Lerner, the figure at the center of the political targeting scandal. The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23-14 to send the criminal referral. The vote marked an escalation in Republicans´ push to confront Lerner over her role in the agency´s controversial practice of singling out conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extra scrutiny. On another front, a separate committee will vote Thursday on whether to hold her in contempt of Congress for twice refusing to testify on the scandal.

Data uncover nation’s top Medicare billers

The Medicare program is the source of a small fortune for many U.S. doctors, according to a trove of government records that reveal unprecedented details about physician billing practices nationwide. The government insurance program for older people paid nearly 4,000 physicians in excess of $1 million each in 2012, according to the new data. Those figures do not include what the doctors billed private insurance firms. The release of the information gives the public access for the first time to the billing practices of individual doctors nationwide. Consumer groups and news outlets have pressured Medicare to release the data for

In a contentious open-to-the-public hearing that lasted only few minutes, the House Ways and Means Committee voted this morning to immediately go into a closed session to discuss a letter proposed by the committee’s majority to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution. When Ranking Member Sander Levin (D.-Mich.), seeking to make a point of order, repeatedly interrupted Chairman Dave Camp’s (R.-Mich.) attempt to start a roll-call vote intended to take the committee into closed session, Camp told him: “Just chill out.

Dr. Salomon Melgen, an eye doctor, major Democratic donor, and friend of Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.), collected $20 million dollars from Medicare in 2012, the Washington Times reports. Salomon Melgen’s practice charged the Medicare program for 37,075 injections of a macular degeneration drug to 645 different patients. The government paid him back at an average reimbursement of nearly $320 for each procedure, according to the records. The figures were part of a massive release of data by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which disclosed detailed information on physician reimbursements in response to several Freedom of Information Act

It’s only April 2014, but a minor boom for a Rick Perry presidential candidacy seems to be cropping up online, first in the Fiscal Times and then on Jennifer Rubin’s WaPo blog, despite the Texas governor’s misfire the first time around. He was the frontrunner in the 2012 campaign before that debate when he could not recall the names of all the federal agencies he wanted to eliminate completely (three at the time, but maybe he should consider doubling or tripling it this go round). A good deal of his forgetfulness, I am certain, was attributable to Perry’s then recent

While Russian President Vladimir Putin foments unrest in Ukraine as a potential guise to plunder more territory, President Obama unleashes Captain Obvious and Secretary Shuttle. Captain Obvious is White House press secretary Jay Carney, the former Moscow bureau chief for Time magazine who told reporters Monday, "If Russia moves into Eastern Ukraine, either overtly or covertly, this would be a very serious escalation." No kidding. Like the time Putin moved into Crimea over White House objections – overtly, covertly and permanently? Thrusting his lower lip into a serious-face pout, Carney solemnly revealed nothing we didn´t already know. "What´s clear is

More mothers have been staying home with their children since the recession ended, but a growing number of them say that’s primarily because they can’t find a job, according to a new study. Almost three in 10 mothers with children under 18 living with them are stay-at-home moms, an analysis of Census Bureau data by the Pew Research Center showed. That is a 3 percentage point jump from the depth of the recession in 2008. (Snip) After decades of decline, the share of mothers with children in the house has been growing since around 2000.

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G.

Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally
