    Former Attorney General Eric Holder left the Obama administration in mid-2015 vowing to battle redistricting efforts in swing states. A year later, Holder was in charge of the newly formed National Democratic Redistricting Committee dedicated to that effort. Texas was in the crosshairs. The redistricting process, headed in committee by Republican Representative Phil King, is expected to take place in a special session of the Texas legislature in mid-2021. The districts targeted for a shakeup are still the subject of speculation, but whatever the result, the Democratic Party holds few options to stop the legislature. The DNC’s goal of flipping...

    AUSTIN – Conservative firebrand and former Florida congressman Allen West will lead the Texas Republican Party into the 2020 election, after ousting the current chairman early Monday during a convention marred by technical difficulties. He vowed to use his post to push back against Democrats’ “progressive socialism.” “I am sick and tired of Republicans being on their heels, being on the defense, always being reactionary with a party that as we see right now-- they don’t stand up for the rule of law, they stand for rule of the mob,” he said during a victory lap on conservative media. The...

    “Useful idiots” is a phrase attributed to Vladimir Lenin, who supposedly used it to describe communist sympathizers in Western Civilization. It is a very appropriate descriptor when it comes to the so-called “woke” mob of the so-called “resistance” that has overtaken the streets of America. Well, let me rephrase that: They have overtaken the streets of major population centers in America. The infestation of wokeness and idiocy seems concentrated in the very places where progressive socialist policies have failed in America. Consider the idiocy of a city in Colorado that is incarcerating people who do not wear a mask. Yet...

    It has been two weeks since my motorcycle crash on I-35, at the speed of 75 mph. I just cannot reiterate my sincere and humble gratitude for the outpouring of prayers. As you are reading this missive, I am undergoing surgery on my right shoulder socket to repair the fracture. It is a bit of a struggle to sit and prepare the missive, and I am experiencing neck pain. However, God’s grace has enabled me to survive and even get back into my running routine, back to four miles. Sunday morning as I was running, I reflected on this thought:...

    (Admin Mod, I know this isn't a proper article - these are my words, not from a source article, but Allen West is beloved around these parts and the only updates on his status after his motorcycle crash are kind-of unstructured posts on his Facebook page.) Allen West left the hospital today, got home, and posted a video thanking everyone for their prayers and well wishes. Since we can't embed video (especially Facebook video), go to this link to watch it: hate to say it, but he looks and sounds pained. Mega-prayers for his recovery. Here are pictures of...

    Perhaps I am dating myself a tad bit, but I remember the song by Jim Croce called “Big Jim.” The refrain was: You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, You don’t spit in the wind, You don’t pull the mask off the old Long Ranger, And you don’t mess around with Jim… Right now, y’all are thinking, where is ol’ Col. West going with this? Is this another indicator that he had too many landings on his head as an Army paratrooper? No, quite the contrary, it would have behooved House Democrat impeachment managers Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler to have...

    On learning that the U.S. Army War College capitulated to the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (“CAIR”) hysterical demands, Lt Col. Allen West wrote: “This is embarrassing, disgusting, appalling, and highly disconcerting. My Army has just emboldened and encouraged the enemy, and they are laughing at us.” Recent events validate his prediction: having cowed the Army War College into obedience, an “emboldened and encouraged” CAIR replicated its demands with Congress. ... after inviting me to lecture on my recent book on the military history between Islam and the West, the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) reneged once CAIR cried “Islamophobia” and...

    TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I have to say one thing, one more thing, one more time. I do not like -- and I've got a Reuters story: "Marco Rubio Emerges Champion of Battered Republican Establishment." Another Reuters story, headline: "Republican Cruz Calls Iowa Win a Victory for Conservative Grassroots." I do not like, speaking for myself, I don't like this idea that Marco Rubio is all of a sudden being labeled as an establishment candidate. I know that Rubio's got the baggage of that Gang of Eight bill and I know that in many people's minds he's got the baggage of wanting...

And yes, those who we honored yesterday still lie in their final duty stations. But the question is, what shall we do for the next 364 days until the next Memorial Day? I have shared a simple theme over the past week where I have spoken. These two words come to us from a memorable film depicting the utter heroism and courage...

The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” —House of Commons, 22 October 1945.

Being a dad to two daughters myself, I know that my friend wanted to make this a memorable evening for his daughter, and it was. We were having a great time. The meal was awesome – a...

    Retired Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Allen West (Screenshot) Dec. 7, 1941 and Sept. 11, 2001 – those two highly recognizable dates have an essential meaning for us as Americans. And those dates have a special meaning in the West Family. I remember my Dad telling me about listening to the radio as a young man of 21 to the reports of the Japanese Imperial Navy attack on the U.S. Pacific Fleet base at Pearl Harbor. He, along with the entire nation, was alarmed, disturbed and angry. The global conflagration that would come to be known as...

    Do you want a surefire recipe to lose the Iraq war? It's easy, really. Just allow the Pentagon to move forward with plans to court martial Lt. Col. Allen B. West. The day that happens is the day U.S. popular support for this war goes south. The day that happens is the day our fighting men realize this war – like Vietnam – is going to be micromanaged by the politicians in Washington who know little or nothing about the split-second judgments that need to be made when you're under fire. The day that happens is the day America loses...

    The battle over how to project the future population of the United States has profound political implications. The question of whether America will become a majority-minority nation — and when that might happen — is intensely disputed, of enormous political import and extraordinarily complex. Two articles that appeared in the opinion section of The Times over the past few years made the case that misleading statistical artifacts used by the Census Bureau have increased the fear of a majority-minority America, a fear that played a crucial role in the 2016 election. Both Richard Alba, of CUNY, in “The Myth of...

    Russia continues to thumb its nose at us while Syria further implodes and Iran continues enriching both its coffers and plutonium, courtesy of the Obama administration. Our economy continues to languish in the tank. Meanwhile, new revelations have surfaced confirming Hillary Clinton’s role in gun running in Libya — certainly supplying arms to Islamists and perhaps even those who murdered an American diplomat and three other Americans in Benghazi. And just last night, newly leaked emails confirm, by Hillary’s own admission, that she has both “public” and “private” policy positions — a euphemism meaning it’s her regular practice to LIE...
