Allen West targeted by new Soros-backed SuperPAC

Allen West targeted by new Soros-backed SuperPAC

I have mentioned before how Allen West is on the top 10 target list for Democrats this year, Dem SuperPAC targeting “Tea Party 10″.

For that reason, among others, West is on the Operation Counterweight list, and we have a separate Focus Page with his website and other links.

Now a SuperPAC has been formed specifically to get rid of West, as reported by The Shark Tank:

Top national Democratic operative Charles Halloran has been retained by a new George Soros-backed super-PAC to target Congressman Allen West for defeat this November.  Halloran is a former aide to President Bill Clinton and is one of the most respected voter targeting/turn out experts in the Democratic Party.  Halloran ran the successful campaign of Democrat Tim Mahoney that won the seat of former Republican Congressman Mark Foley.

The Super PAC has been christened “Dump West” and is expected to file with the Federal Election Commission early next week.  Sources have told The Shark Tank that a website along with a targeted web advertising campaign will soon be launched.  Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi asked former Congressman Larry Smith, who’s now working as a lobbyist, to help line up initial funding for the group. West is said to be at the top of Pelosi’s hit list.

Sources have also us that left wing billionaire George Soros is among those who committed to a $5 million war chest to defeat West.

They’re obviously racists.

Sounds like sarcasm…but it isn’t. These people can’t abide blacks who aren’t on the liberal/victim plantation.

“West is said to be at the top of Pelosi’s hit list.”

I can well imagine!

West is on or near the top of people I want to see re-elected, and the Pelosi thing is just a little relish on top!

I’m not surprised he’s being targeted. He’s forthright and does not ascribe to herd mentality and that’s why the Democrats out to get him.

A pox on Frau Oberstgruppenführer Peloϟϟi. 👿

Ever notice that Leftist bullies all represent “safe” districts? They are all cowards and most, because they are never challenged, are not very smart. I offer as proof, Frau Peloϟϟi’s well-documented idiotic remarks, lies and bizarre behavior. Without much intellect, they’re left with nothing but their baser political instincts and an empty facade to sustain them.

I will give Col. West a donation, today!

    We seriously need to support Allen West. I wish Soros would just go away…he and all of his socialist
    BS. If only we could put Obama, Soros, Reid, and Pelosi on a super remote island…ahh that would rid the world of some scum very quickly. West says it like it is and it’s the truth. He is a very smart man with a solid background. We need more like him!!

      You think George Soros is a socialist? Really? How sad that you don’t know the difference betweeen capitalism and socialism. Soros is a Capitalst and a damn good one.

    NO CARPETBAGGERS NO TEABAGGERS VOTE SHERIFF BOB CROWDER IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY AUGUST 14th VOTE FOR A LOCAL

Additional California $ are on their way to Col. West.

If it’s about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can

I would hazard a guess, that HERO Allen West, would say and do, the exact same thing, for his nation. Come to think on it, he IS!

Soros, hmm, name rings a bell. Isn’t he the fellow that assisted the NAZI’S?

    Squires in reply to JP. | July 11, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Yeah, I was thinking how strange this country has become, thanks to a century of Fabian cryptomarxist positioning and the Gramscian “march through the institutions”, that we have a soldier who was forcibly retired for being mean to a genocidal, head-chopping, little-girl-raping enemy in order to save the lives of our (his) own men… being vilified by a major political party whose efforts are backed by a plutocratic former NSDP collaborator.

    When a lot of supporters of a major political party feel comfortable calling a man like West a “war criminal”, and from what I’ve seen a lot of them do, while making excuses for all manner of 7th century psychopathy and protesting the existence of the Guantanamo Bay Daycare Center and Lonely Hearts Club… more than a few screws have come loose.

      My 89-year-old father, a WWII vet and a member of the contingency force for the land assault on Honshu Island (main Japanese island) has told me several things about WWII with regards to history, the sacrifices of men for our freedom and the terrible state of affairs and bizarre behavior of leadership in America today.

      1. “None of us thought we would ever come home (alive).”
      2. “What do you think I was doing over there?”
      3. “You’re only here because I’m here, and I’m only here because Truman dropped the bomb.”
      4. “Your grandfather was an FDR New Deal Democrat, so was I.”
      5. “I owed Truman my vote, then I switched parties.”
      6. (I can’t put the next one up as it has to do with the empty suit in the White House.)

      So what happened? “We have found the enemy and he is us.” – Pogo

      For too many years, mainstream Republicans have compromised away their principles, fiscal, moral, etc. The socialist education system has been graduating people perhaps adequate in their vocation, but almost totally void of understanding basic business, economics, history and civic duty for far too long. We need a new revolution, and we’re getting it finally. Suggestion: Read Angelo Codevilla’s “America’s Ruling Class”; http://spectator.org/archives/2010/07/16/americas-ruling-class-and-the/print
      and “Future Tense X: The fourth revolution” by James Piereson; http://www.newcriterion.com/articles.cfm/Future-tense–X–The-fourth-revolution-7395 The first article explains how we got here, as this quote jokingly infers (historically speaking), “The Republican Party never met a compromise it didn’t like.” And the fact that beginning with the Reagan victory and Newt Gingrich’s “Contract With America”, and now with “The Tea Party” movement, the fourth revolution (since the inception of the country) has begun. It’s been a long time coming, and Allen West is a part of it.

    Obama would send Biden through hell with a gas can. Now that I think about it, Biden would obey. Just give him a drink first.

“Halloran ran the successful campaign of Democrat Tim Mahoney that won the seat of former Republican Mark Foley.”

And that is considered some great acheivement? A dead racoon could have won that seat considering the absolute scandal that surrounded Mark Foley.

Of course the Dems want West gone. He just doesn’t know his place and absolutely refuses to get back on the plantation. Let Tim Scott start getting vocal and watch how long it takes the Dems to go after him.

    Spiny Norman in reply to retire05. | July 11, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    The Establishment GOP wants him gone as much as do the Democrats. They tried their damndest to dispose of him by redistricting, but the Colonel is not going quietly.

      TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Spiny Norman. | July 11, 2012 at 9:41 pm

      Come on down to Houston and take Queen Sheila Jackson Lee’s district 18, Gene Green’s district 29 or even Ron Paul’s old district 14! We’ll take care of ya, Colonel!!

USED to be a huge West fan… but he blew it when he signed onto that letter requesting the re-instatement of earmarks.

    Please explain how suspending tariffs on imports necessary for US manufacturing is an earmark?

    I am familiar with or acquainted with six members who signed the letter–all good men, some more conservative than others.

    Do you really want Lois Frankel in Congress??

    islamophobe in reply to K.J. Hinton. | July 12, 2012 at 10:47 am

    Before you go and write him off so easily, why don’t you do some research and find out his reasoning for doing that? He may well have a darned good reason for it – you know. He is a very well educated man and is highly qualified (which is more than I can say for Obama) to make these types of decisions, when he is equipped with as much information as possible.

The left, via outlets like MediaMatters et al, have distorted Col. West’s videos so heinously that the Democratic lemmings think of Allen West they way we thought about Alan Grayson. I kid you not. Stroll around DU and see for yourself.
I’d rather see him at Pennsylvania Avenue, but I will support him in FL.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | July 11, 2012 at 7:31 pm

According to The Shark Tank, Pelosi asked former Congressman Larry Smith to do fundraising. One reason why Larry Smith is a former Congressman is because he went to prison for evading taxes, floating bad checks, and illegally using campaign money to pay off gambling debts.

As I said in a comment to another post earlier today, character flaws are features of Democrats. Their ideology is not only wrong, but appears to attact bad people.

Of course, we could avoid all this by nominating West as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate.

After eight years of being Vice President, he would most certainly be ready to step into the Oval Office.

I can think of nothing else that would drive the progressive malcontents to distraction more than have Col. West as the VP.

I wouldn’t mind seeing him in the vice-presidential slot, but I doubt the progressive, Republican malcontents will allow it, because it would drive them to distraction.

    dskay in reply to MAB. | July 12, 2012 at 11:55 am

    As a VP he wouldn’t be as effective. We don’t have that many really good polititians out there, so the ones we have we need in Congress. Congress can reign in a bad prez. If they chose to that is.

If somebody told me I would be sending money to support a candidate 3000 miles from where i live I would have laughed in disbelief. Colonel West is an asset to the whole country so all lot of people will be helping. Soros is throwing his money away and that’s fine with me. I can’t stand Jew hating Jews.

    dskay in reply to arnonerik. | July 12, 2012 at 2:49 am

    LOL I sent him some this morning from Michigan. When I heard him speak on am 760 he made me feel like Reagan did back when I was 18.
    We need some stand up people in Congress.

Just put in $50.00 of Northern Nevada money for Col. West. Anyone George Soros wants out is aces in my book. But, the donation is a pleasure anyway because the Col. is an excellent voice for conservatives.

Allen West will crush his opponent.

That’s just how he rolls.

Allen West is an honor to his parents, nation, uniform and family. George Soros is a NAZI collaborator and digusting piece of crap (along with his Democrat allies).

It’s time to end this ObamaNation and return the Republic to its founding priciples. Thank God for leaders like Allen West.

I read this, and donated on the spot.Col West put his life on the line for us, and continues to stand against the hoard. May God bless and protect this “Great Man”, and smite those wicked evil OBUMMER DOGS!

Never been a big West supporter but if Soros hates him I must be missing something.Just sent him a donation.

    currently in reply to spike. | July 12, 2012 at 2:00 am

    Yeah, you’re missing something – it’s called paying attention to what the hell’s going on.

    Glad you got more money than sense.

      I just re-read my post to spike and it wasn’t very nice.

      I apologize to those who may have been offended.

      I should have said “Did you send a donation to Soros or West?” It wasn’t clear in your post.

Rep Allen West is now line in the sand Gov Walker protection mode center of our Tea Party rally to keep him in the Congressional seat at all costs, all throughout this Congressional campaign.

Rep Allen west is our Alamo.

I am not sure I understand. How can George Soros participate in our election process when he is not even an American citizen?

    dskay in reply to jondos. | July 12, 2012 at 11:18 am

    He can participate by sending gobs and gobs of money to the party that he wants to win. And while I do not agree with
    it, the one who has the most money usually wins in politics today. Just facts. That’s why I will send what I can to West and any other candidate I think would be a better choice no matter what state they are from.

West voted FOR NDAA. As far as I’m concerned he’s as much a traitor to this country and destroyer of our freedoms as the others who also voted for NDAA.
Just another dog and pony show. Smile at our face and stab us in the back.
His long military career only tells me he is more than likely a war monger. Enough warmongers! Enough traitors !

Col. West is a TRUE leader and there is some more California money coming your way sir.

Semper Fi and keep up the good work.

ChocolateQueen | July 12, 2012 at 10:36 am

I love how the liberal left gets their panties in a twist over the Koch Brothers. But they are so puny compared to the long arm of George Soros. This man is evil, and the way he goes after anyone conservative or Republican is like a hungry lion on a zebra. He has no conscious, no honor and anyone who agrees with this man’s methods is just as sociopathic as he is. Allan West is a great man with a great reputation. He is a man of honor and integrity. Only a reprobate like Soros would try to take down a good man.

    “This man is evil, and the way he goes after anyone conservative or Republican is like a hungry lion on a zebra. He has no conscious, no honor and anyone who agrees with this man’s methods is just as sociopathic as he is.”

    That’s right ChocolateQueen, George Soros in my opinion is a fascist, a Nazi, and if he had his way there would be a mountain of skulls of those of us who oppose him. He is EVERYTHING the Left accuses Republicans of being, yet they conveniently ignore him. He’s in his 80’s and one heart beat away from being Hitler’s roommate to put it that way.

Congressman West will have no problem in the upcoming election in November. People love his not backing down to those who are trying to bring this country into the European standard.

I very rarely contribute to any political candidate but I WILL contribute to him.

You go, Mr. West!

It is becoming a pattern, the Democrats savagely attacking free Black men and free Black women. Allen West will be moving up in the political world regardless of the race-based attacks upon him by the left as he represents the path to freeing not only Blacks from Democratic party enslavement, but all Americans from the tyranny of the liberal/progressive/Marxist/Democratic central government.

GaBlueStarMom | July 12, 2012 at 11:53 am

West didn’t follow “proper procedures” in questioning the prisoner is undisputed. The colonel acknowledged that, in saying he did it in order to protect his men. The outstanding career officer said at his Article 32 hearing that he would “walk through hell with a gasoline can” in his hand if it meant he could save his troops. “I am prepared to lay down my life for any one of them, if need be,” he said.

Yes, this is what LEADERS do! You take FULL responsiblity. For a man to be willing to give up his career for his men speaks volumes!

    StageCoachDriver in reply to GaBlueStarMom. | July 12, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Can I click “Like” about 100 times? I served under officers like Col West and some like C-I-C O-Bama. The first type I’d follow into h3ll, the others …

    Congratulations on being a Blue Star Mom and we all pray it will always be a Blue Star.

Col. Allan West will, in either 8 or 12 years be the first truely Black president in the USA. According to some Hollywood lefty Obama is an “interracial” president. As far as Gyorgy Schwartz is concerned, he has thrown hundreds of millions at losing left wing causes. This is just another one. I understand he changed his name to Soros because he helped the Nazis against his own people. Before coming to the USA he tried to destroy the English economy; now he is working on our’s.

Now we know who the Demonrats fear! Mitt Romney would be a fool or tool if he doesn’t pick Allen West for Veep. I can’t wait to hear the Racist Vitriol from Pelosi’s pie hole!

Col. West is unafraid to speak the truth and what is on his mind. I think the Dems got a little upset when he declared there are as many as 82 “commies” in the democrat Congress. As long as Col. West actions equal his words, he will continue to be a citizen favorite..

Just made my third contribution to Col. Allen West. God Bless him and his family.

StageCoachDriver | July 12, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Col West must be doing something right to get Soros on his case with anti-West ads!

[…] On tips from G. Fox, A. Levy, Shawn, and Varla. Hat tip: Legal Insurrection. […]

No black liberal is going to let a black conservative succeed. The Dems want blacks dependent on government so they can control their vote! Look at the trumped up crap against Herman Cain …

Soros, Socialist or Capitalist, no he’s a Fascist as I see it. I define Fascist as state controlled capitalism, see China, their not communists anymore. Fascism is the lazy mans capitalism, always easier to cut a deal with the Gov. than to face the market. Communism is state controlled socialism, see N. Korea, not much cash or bling in that gig.

ChetInTexas | July 12, 2012 at 5:10 pm

Col. Allen West is a carpetbagger. VOTE FOR SHERIFF BOB CROWDER in the Republican primary. This long-time Republican sheriff has the people of this district’s best interest in mind. He has served the people of Martin County honorable for years. VOTE FOR CROWDER

    StageCoachDriver in reply to doodoorhymes. | July 12, 2012 at 6:10 pm

    Sorry you feel a soldier returning home is a carpetbagger but I do think the Sheriff would be a good opponent. I like an election that presents qualified candidates!

    As a Viet Nam Naval Air alumni I still didn’t think Senator McCain was a good candidate for President. Therefore I don’t think we voters had a good choice. I didn’t turn my back on McCain because a shipmate is a shipmate and a hero is a hero so I voted for him. Didn’t feel the same about Kerry. Kerry was the kind of person that did little more than game the system.

    I hope to hear about a good race between Crowder and West.

    Not going to work doodoo paid Leftist blogger.

All the more reason for this Florida voter to vote for him. Then later he can run in Jacksonville’s, FL district against whats her name, the Socialist who has a creative carved out district just for her yet claims to represent Jacksonville. Yeah Colonel Allen West should do as much as he can and then later run for president as he gains more experience. Maybe he can bring the Republican party back to representing conservative ideas and mainstream American ideas instead of socialist catering to Socialist Europe Democrats. Remember, the more you “reach out” to Democrats the more they bite your hand and hate you for it. Just remember George W.Bush first term…at the very beginning even before 9/11 he tried to reach out to Democrats and they hated him for it. If you adopt their ideas they hate you all the more. If you don’t they still hate you just not as much. So therefore don’t be blamed for adopting loony stupid ideas and excessive spending. Only Allen West understands that and the rest need to be educated on it and that’s up to us. As for Gov. Scott of FL if he opposes West just know myself and others will oppose him firecely and we don’t care if a sorry Democrat gets in, that way we know what we get and challenge the Republicans FL legislature to oppose them all the more. That’s the way it is, no sense in BSing with political stupidity and catering to the idiots in the media.
