The establishment is fighting back, alright.
This has not received a lot of national attention, but the Republican legislature in Florida is about to push through a plan which puts Allen West at serious risk, and the person leading the effort is one of Mitt Romney’s spokemen. As reported by The Shark Tank:
After last night’s [Jan. 26] Republican Presidential debate, the candidates’ respective spinmeisters made their cases to the media as to why their guy won the debate. One of Governor Mitt Romney’s spokesmen was Florida Representative Will Weatherford, and during the course of his remarks in the “Spin Room”, he shed a very dim light on the ongoing redistricting process in the Florida Legislature….
West’s congressional district inexplicably sheds the most out support as compared to all other incumbent Republican and Democrat Congressman. A few weeks back we quoted an unnamed legislator saying that, “Allen West was screwed”, a statement which was originally made about made five months before the purposed maps were made public, leading insiders to believe that the fix was in against Allen West. But in light of Weatherford’s comment, it is increasingly clear that this is a fait accompli.
According to Weatherford, those preliminary maps will not change- at the most, any additional changes would be minimal, and those changes would not make any appreciable difference from the preliminary maps. In addition, Weatherford stated that a deal was struck between him, Senate President Mike Haridopolos, and Senator Don Gaetz to finalize these maps and push them through as soon as possible.
Weatherford tried to hide behind a need to comply with [state and] federal law, but that’s obviously a dodge since there could have been many ways to comply yet not sacrifice West:
A website, SaveAllenWest, had been set up, but it appears to be too late.
One of the rising stars of the Tea Party is about to be sacrificed by the Republican establishment in Florida, led by someone spinning for Mitt Romney.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Allen West is one of VERY DARNED FEW members of Congress who truly believe in that same Constitution to which ALL have taken a Solemn Oath - and which MOST ignore completely as they legislate in total violation of that Constitution! Is that why they're trying to get rid of him?
Instead, why don't we try to get rid of the self-avowed Muslims who believe in Sharia Law, self-avowed Socialists who openly express opinions and beliefs which are totally in violation of that Constitution? ALL who violate the constitution should be IMPEACHED, and PROSECUTED AS TRAITORS - because that is what they are!
Sick and tired of these guys (and gals!) who are being way overpaid to UPHOLD the Constitution - and are instead openly violating that Constitution - and allowing a self-appointed 'king' to rule unhampered...WHERE IS THE OUTCRY? WHY have NONE of these been impeached? why the silence on the open violations?
LitlBits.......I assume you have sent a note of encouragement to Judge Michael Malihi to hold strong in the mounting evidence of Obama's ineligibility to appear on the Georgia Ballot???
I am Here...I am Ready!
I would say we need to recruit Colonel West for the upcoming battle against Washington, D.C. Let Colonel West design the battle plan, because we are going to need a battle plan, when this government does what I think it will do between now and the new president and vice president swearing in. Come join us Allen West, the patriots need you.
This has been going on a while and West has been saying that they were going after him. . Romney is an Elite with Establishment connection to the NWO, So is Gingrich.
Does everyone know that Romney's father ran for President. No one talks about that. Romney has been raised to be where he is right now.
Santorum/West ticket would give this County the strength to restore/
Well if the enemy redistricts Allan West's office out of existence I reckon we the people will have to secure a place for him somewhere else--like the White House?
I think it is the time now to get rid of Mitt Romney. Alan West would much more appropriate and better choice to run for president. I hope he will one day, after he gets more experience between the political vultures.
Could it not be foreseen that the Republican establishment would try to run roughshod over the Tea Party elected Congressmen. They were standing out front declaring the Party needed to be taken back from the Country Club Bluebloods of the Party once again, just as it has happened several times before. They are trying to remove the opposition from the inside of the Conservative base and keep the power with the Ruling Class of the Party. They will work every angle possible to make sure that their power is not relinquished back to us. Many have gotten involved in there local Party, but that does not seem to be having enough of a desired effect. So now what?
True patriots are a rare breed, and those like Col. West could well upset the apple cart and halt the gravy train for the corrupt ba$+ards in D.C. Romney is nothing but a socialist/communist with an "R" after his name. This, coming from me, is significant...
...I'm a "Mormon".
Screw Romney! He's the SNAKE that started this whole thing. Romney can NOT in the least relate to the common man/woman. He was born into a Mormon aristocracy that left the U.S. for Mexico when the U.S. banned poligamy. His gr-grandfather had 11 wives, his grandfather had 5. His own father kept 1. When the Mexican Revolution started kicking up, the Romney's high tailed it back to the U.S. as they didn't want to be involved. None of the Romney's have ever given anything to anyone but themselves!!!!
Happy to say that Allen got a terrific district and is happy about it. He will be okay. This just happened today.
Go West go!!!!!
