Allen West: “It’s Black History Month…And”

It is the First of February, and the weather here in Dallas has been outstanding. It is truly a beautiful day for the first day of Black History Month, again. I grew up in the center of black history in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood. This is the same neighborhood that gave us Dr. Martin

Allen West: Trump’s Labor pick Andy Puzder would unleash opportunity in urban centers

Allen West: A Tale of Two Cities, and Two Paths for America

I find it rather interesting, no hypocritical, that when it comes to what can only be described as a domestic Islamic terrorist/jihadist attack we are admonished to not rush to judgement or be impetuous. We are directed to never make any general statements and comparisons of Islam to terrorist activity, or be castigated as an
