When you stand on truth and principle, you must be prepared for this

Good Sunday morning folks, just had a tremendous visit in the Pacific Northwest, in the state of Washington, speaking at three venues in Snohomish County (Everett), Lincoln County (Davenport), and Spokane.

It was great to be in Spokane the same day that my Tennessee Lady Vols defeated Gonzaga in overtime in the Women’s NCAA Basketball tournament championship — they are part of the Elite Eight. This weekend I shared the story of Lincoln’s “Liberty and Tyranny” quote to inspire the people to stand up and declare the true meaning of liberty — the right of the individual to do as they please and what they please with the product of their labor, not for others to take that right away. But as I sit here in the Portland airport awaiting my flight to Dallas-Ft Worth, God asked me to share some scripture verses with you all.

You see, there are times when you stand on truth and principle, it angers others and they believe you to be a threat. And for whatever reason you must be targeted and your character assaulted by those who hide in the shadows. Perhaps there are those of you out there who need an encouraging word to stand in the face of wrongdoers and their tactics of personal assassination and destruction — something of which I, and sadly my family, are familiar.

So hear are the words from Isaiah Chapter 54, verse 17 (NIV), “No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.” As well, it simply says in Romans Chapter 8, verse 31 (NIV), “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

We the people, the American people, are more than conquerors and those who are the emissaries and authors of confusion, denigration, and defamation will not triumph. Those who stand for liberty rooted in the knowledge of that unalienable right emanating not from man but from our Creator, God, will prevail. There are moments of perceived darkness but truth and light wins victoriously.

God bless, Steadfast and Loyal

Yes, I needed that encouragement. Thank you, sir.

Dear Col. West,
Thanks, I needed that. I know you don’t need me, (an ordinary Mom, Grandmother, Christian, Conservative) to stand in your defense, but I do, proudly. You are like a Knight or Centurion girded with your Spiritual Armor. Please, don’t ever give up or doubt that there are many of US out here, praying for you and lifting you up to the Lord. Your voice is like one calling out in the wilderness…

I’m sorry but a true Christian wouldn’t support a man like ALLEN WEST!! He promotes bigotry, hate and racism and these are not the characteristics of a christian. You people are easily led

jyearsley

Interestingly, in my experience most people with the hubris and arrogance to pontificate who is or who isn’t a “True” Christian aren’t even qualified or able to define what actually denotes one as a Christian. I suspect, sir, that you fir the mold.

You are far more correct than you will ever know. I spent over 20 years among Wiccans, witches, and pagans. I was very caught up in that world, which is dominated by people who fall on the far, far, far lunatic left of the political spectrum (feminists, eco-Nazis, peacenik hippies, New Agers, etc). Let me tell you, although they PREACH that they are “tolerant” and “loving” and “compassionate,” they actually can be hugely intolerant and hateful and bigoted against anyone who disagrees with them or questions THEIR truths. Question even the slightest thing they believe and they’re all over you… Read more »

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman”.

-Thomas Paine, December 1776

So thank you, Col. West! Leftists need to be absolutely destroyed!

Brendan
Guest

Thomas Paine was a liberal.
You quote him in the same comment that you say he must be destroyed

MajorWoody
Guest

Brandon. Do you mean libertarian? Because there was no such thing as a liberal back then. If you respond that i am wrong then i will know you are a crack pot.

Brendan
Guest

hahaha
Anyone who disagrees with you is a crackpot?

Oh and as to your remark that there was no such thing as a liberal back then… liberalism dates back to the ancient Greeks and the word liberal first appeared in the English language nearly 700 years ago… so I guess that makes everyone but you a crackpot

Carl Garver
Guest

hey dirtbag, don’t even try to put yourself in the same company as Thomas Payne. the term liberal is exactly the opposite now as then! Thomas would be considered a conservative now not a spineless stench filled communist POS libertard or democrat!

Brendan
Guest

well all that you proved is that you never actually read anything by Thomas Paine

Thomas Paine opposed the church and wanted it kept out of government… he also wanted the role of government to be responsible for solving the problems of income inequality

Carl Garver
Guest
Its too bad you liberal/athiest/communist/democrats can’t come up with something new. So the first thing you attempt to attack is religion and government. Shows how ignorant you all are. Heres a little enlightenment. They were all for the seperation of church and state, it was one of the reasons they left England, they were tired of the church of England interfering in their lives. But you boneheads can’t distinguish the differance between faith, which they all had, and organized religion.So, your delusion that this country wasn’t built on the foundation of Judeo Christian values is bogus! And again, Thomas Paine… Read more »

Tell the truth for once! Paine wasn’t a traitor. You should find the time to really read up on him instead of cherry picking what truths to distort.

I’ve always liked the fact that Col West is not one to shy away from speaking up. Love it when he goes into the belly of the beast (Lib land). Really chafes their hides.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Allen (I’ve never experienced racism) West is a NOBODY!!! He’s not in office…too afraid to run for office. He just exploits the STUPID to sell tee shirts and coffee mugs!

mELLEm
Guest

The fact that one would declare Allen West to be a “nobody” yet find West’s opinions so compelling that one reads every.single.article.by.West, and makes it a priority to comment on every.single.article.by.West is amusing. And interesting…because such fixation and preoccupation would seem to indicate that one has an underlying attraction to Lt. Col. West.

Uncle Ruckus

Do you know how entering it is watching you loons go NUTS??

Red Fred

Think you meant entertaining dumb a**.

mELLEm

*entering* Did you mean *entertaining*? Probably just a Freudian slip.

MajorWoody

West is smart, successful and self made. That’s all it takes for the black community to hate him.

Uncle Ruckus

If you consider selling coffee mugs and tee shirts to the STUPID as successful….I guess he is!

Dan Souza

Well, what rank did you achieve in the military and what political office have you held? When was the last time a major cable news network had you on as a guest?

Uncle Ruckus

What other cable news network has ALLEN (PERVERT) WEST been on OTHER than FOX??

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

AND..if he is soooo successful….why doesn’t he put his money where his mouth is?? Just sit back and complain but not willing to make a change! We know you can change america better from a THINK TANK than the WHITE HOUSE!! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

KJinWTexas
Guest

You’re just the kind of people West was talking about. You’re jealous because he IS somebody and you’re not. You’re small and petty with no principles to stand on so you lash out at those that do. When you’ve served your country as Col West has done, come back and let’s talk. Until then, you’re just another worm that crawled out of a hole.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

I served in the United States Army for 23 years PAL! You shut up!!! West isn’t UNIQUE…he found out that he could make a lot of money by disagreeing with EVERYTHING the president does. Basically he is exploiting the STUPID!!

Please link us to examples of Col. West’s “hate and bigotry”. You’re already on his website, so it won’t be much of an effort to find plenty of examples.

We’ll all sit here waiting with bated breath. I’m sure your well-reasoned and thoughtfully researched reply is already in the works.

Uncle Ruckus

Ok…

Rafael X

I don’t get the point of this “article”.

Paul Sheridan
Guest

Apparently some blogger is accusing West of sexually harassing a number of women over the course of his career. He is apparently attempting to defend himself without actually naming the thing he’s defending himself against. I think Allen West is an idiot but I don’t have any reason to believe him or this blogger.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

The point of the article is to try to convince the STUPID that follows him that he is some sort of “CHRISTIAN” A biscuit has the sense to know that just because you say GOD doesn’t make you a christian….he is closer to being a follower of SATAN!!

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

HATRIOTS!!! Perfect word to describe ALLEN (I’ve never experienced racism) West and his stupid followers!!

Jesus Raped Mary
Guest

Allen West is being Accused of some serious acts of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault, aswell as being an Adulterer.

This is Mr. West’s attempt to portray himself as a good Conservative and Christian who is being persecuted by the “Mainstream Media”.

Jasmin Chambers

And this is your attempt at portraying yourself as a moron. Mission accomplished!

Oh snap that’s some family values. Did LBJ made him do it? Must that sanctity of marriage ya’ll always talking about.

Rena

Somewhat off topic.. well completely off topic… your nick… How could Jesus rape Mary if she gave birth to him?

Jasmin Chambers
Guest

As I observed in earlier posts from this person’s inane drivel, he/she is an obvious moron! There’s your answer!

Jesus Raped Mary
Guest

If Jesus is God, and God impregnated Mary when she was only 12 years old, that is RAPE.

Jasmin Chambers

Pssst! Immaculate conception! Gosh, do you practice in front of a mirror to achieve this level of moronic idiocy, or is it just an innate gift?

Rena

Jesus is not God, he is the son of God. And God didn’t rape her, she agreed to the “union”. You might want to research this a bit more… Luke 1: 26 – 38. I don’t believe the Bible ever spoke of her age so I don’t believe we can say what age she was, but this was also a time when girls married at a very young age, around 12 to 14 years old, just as we used to in the 1800’s and before and a bit into the 1900’s. A girl was of marrying age usually around 12… Read more »

On his Twitter account, Johnson told is 20 thousand followers, “I’m begging Allen West to sue me,” and later stating that, “The problem with the claim that every black conservative gets accused of sexual impropriety is that Herman Cain & Allen West actually did it.”

First off, no msm has spoken up on it that I could find.. and lord knows CNN and MSNBC would have a field day with that… secondly, no one has shown any proof that I could find.. the one person with whom he worked with at Pajamas Media who allegedly grabbed her breast will not speak up about it.

also…I find it ODD that allen is not filing suit!

Rena

LOL just because he doesn’t file suit doesnt mean he is guilty… People in the public are always being threatened and accused of stuff. Most of which are false accusations so someone can get something out of it, ie, money, noticed, and so on.

Uncle Ruckus

But even if its determined that this story is TRUE….wouldn’t make a difference to you LOONS. You’ll say something like he had a weak moment and continue to support and buy his coffee mugs and tee shirts!!!

Karl Knize

And the people on the left generally don’t conflate the constitution with god and religion.

Jasmin Chambers
Guest

The Constitution is one big “do unto others” variation. Those men could not remove their upbringing totally from their psyches anymore than our president now can deny his early influences. He has a totally different world view. Personally, I think when different world views try to occupy the same space at the same time, well the laws of physics apply it seems. It begets turmoil. The more homogenous a society, the less chaos. It is when the balance is agitated with change, things become unbalanced.

Karl Knize
Guest

At least the people on the left, in general, don’t feel like they have the right to impose their religion and religious views on the rest of the population.

Jasmin Chambers
Guest
When you believe Jesus and God to be on the same level as Santa and the Easter Bunny, why does it bother you that some people do not share your view on this matter. Losing Jesus and God then means nothing, essentially adding Zero to your equation, thus changing nothing for you. But, to a believer, it has a profound impact. So, for a believer it isn’t a question of won’t give it up, but a can’t give it up. No one says YOU have to participate, but YOU seem to go beyond not wanting to participate yourself, but you… Read more »

I’m sorry but MSNBC nor CNN would cover ALLEN WEST…he is a political NOBODY!! Only you loons think this man is more than he is!

Rena

Bull crap… they would be dancing int he street because he is very outspoken against Obama and his administration, not to mention Wasserman would be out to get him on this…. It is fairly obvious that the msn do not like Republicans and will do anything to discredit any of its members and former members.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

BULL CRAP…once again…ALLEN WEST is a political NOBODY!! I watch CNN, MSNBC and FOX on a regular basis….CNN nor MSNBC has ever said anything about allen west after he lost his re-election bid….sorry!

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

When asked about the potential for suing Johnson or Kaufman for defamation, West said, “I think I will just live my life and continue to serve my country and let haters hate.”

Rena
Guest

Still not proof that it did happen. Not everyone is litigation happy in this country. It seems more like some person, much like you, who got his panties in a bunch and probably heard some rumor and wanted to try to sensationalize it, like you try to do every chance you get on here… and he couldn’t get the person to back him up. Do you think that perhaps this person didn’t go for it because she knew it was a lie and didn’t want to get in trouble for perjury?

The left Is better than the right, or haven’t you noticed that all the right really stands for anymore is corporate boot licking, saber rattling, climate denial, and opposition to all things Obama.

Mr West. When will the time come for action? All the articles, all the comments, all the talk shows are getting us nowhere. Obama and the lib machine get bigger every day because we let them through our own inaction. We dont need more radio or more internet, We need boots on the ground now.
