Allen West: Here’s What I Have to Say About Trump’s ‘Hot Mic’ Comments…
We need to keep everything in its context. The world is on fire. America has been taken over by Progressives and is rotting from within. It will take outsiders, not the same people who have made this mess, to start to clean it up. And surely, not even a sparrow will fall from the sky unless Almighty God is with us. -W.E.

Hey, can y’all keep a secret? Well, I’m writing this missive from the historic Olympic Club, nation’s oldest athletic club founded in 1860, located in San Francisco. Boy howdy, I was a bit nervous that as soon as I landed, ol’ Nancy Pelosi would have Obama’s secret police there to put me in shackles.
Friday evening I spoke to the San Francisco GOP Club, and yes, there is such a thing and a great group of folks led by Christine Hughes. It was great to see my dear friend Marie Stroughter of African-American Conservatives and her family. Today, I’m in Bakersfield, California to speak at the Bakersfield Business Conference. Why be in California? Because we have to fight and make a stand for constitutional conservatism everywhere, and I love going in behind “enemy lines” and causing disruption. As well, it’s important to encourage our conservative and Republican brothers and sisters everywhere; that’s why I love going on college campuses and to places like Rhode Island.
Now, I do have one regret, I will not be able to sit before a TV and watch my #9 ranked Tennessee Volunteers take on the #8 ranked Texas A&M Aggies down in College Station, Texas. The Vols pulled another one out last week against Georgia — only time I cheer against my home State, mind you — but I just dunno if their “lucky charm” can go much further. I can bet all those Aggie faithful friends I’ve made since moving to Texas will be hogging up my cell phone.
But sitting here at the Olympic Club, it’s Fleet Week in San Francisco, and I remember hosting the same in Ft. Lauderdale. The Blue Angels are here and I hear the roar of the engines as they practice their maneuvers overhead — the sound of freedom. However, thanks to Hillary Clinton and her infamous “reset button,” that sound may be in danger where it counts; on the front lines of freedom.
Yes, I will get to my thoughts about the Trump tape below — but allow me to set some context for them first.
As reported by The Hill, Defense officials on Thursday reacted coolly to the Russians’ warning not to strike Syrian regime targets, saying U.S. air forces would continue to conduct its current operations in Syria against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
“We’ll continue to conduct our operations as we have for months now over Syria, and we’ll continue to do so taking every possible step we need to to ensure the safety of our air crews,” Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook told reporters.
Earlier in the day, a Russian military spokesman warned the U.S. against striking Syrian regime military targets, noting that its air defense systems in Syria could fend off any attack.
“I would recommend our colleagues in Washington to carefully weigh possible consequences of the fulfillment of such plans,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Thursday, according to the Associated Press.
Russia announced Tuesday that it had moved the S-300 surface-to-air missile system to its naval base in Tartus, Syria, to defend the base and its ships. It would be capable of shooting down aircraft and ballistic missiles.
The announcement came amid renewed talk in Washington of pursuing military options to end the civil war in Syria, after negotiations between the U.S. and Russia to end the civil war were formally suspended Monday.
Currently, U.S. forces are only targeting ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria, but the White House is discussing options to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to negotiate an end to the civil war, which is estimated to have killed more than 400,000.
Military options reportedly include striking targets associated with Assad’s air force, establishing safe zones inside Syria and supplying anti-regime rebels with anti-aircraft systems.
I know, I know, doggone me for bringing up this “other stuff,” when all the liberal progressive media wants to talk about is some audio of Donald Trump from 11 years ago. This whole threat from Russia, or even the abysmal jobs report of September, that evidences the failure of the Obama economy — which Hillary Clinton wants to continue — that’s not what the leftists want to discuss. Why talk about the things that are happening now — well, nothing good is happening now for the liberal progressives of the new American socialist party — so get the complicit liberal left media to deflect.
Now, ask yourself, does Hillary Clinton REALLY want to make this election about Donald Trump and women? Needless to say, her house has been on fire, some say still is, and she wants to complain about the grass being too high at someone else’s house. And let’s not bring up the 12-year-old girl, a rape victim, that Mrs. Clinton assailed, enabling a rapist to go free — anyone heard the audio of Hillary laughing about how he denigrated that little girl?
The true fact is that Hillary Clinton and her campaign does not want to talk about how we now know what Barack Obama meant when he confided to Dmitry Medvedev that he’d have more flexibility after his reelection. So Vladmir Putin has sent a message to Obama and Hillary about “red lines” and the empty rhetoric about Assad must go — don’t try it.
The disaffected and disinterested boy king Obama has been played, and I mean just frankly pinked-out like a wimp at the beach by the world’s tough guys — Putin, Xi Jinping, Rouhani, and Kim Jung-Un. Obama and Hillary have decimated our military capability and evidenced such a weakness in our foreign policy that we have everyone out there telling the United States what we had best not do! We no longer command respect or have a venerable and feared military deterrent force — nah, we’re too busy developing transgender handbooks for our military and promising sex change operations for individuals suffering from the mental condition called gender dysphoria.
But hey, don’t let me get in the way of the Clinton News Network breaking news coverage of the Donald Trump audio tape from 11 years ago. That is REALLY what’s important. And what does that have to do with Americans getting back to work in a Country that only produced 156K jobs in the entire month of September — and that number could be revised when we’re not watching, like next month. We have more than 90 million Americans out of work, and not even part of the active workforce seeking employment. They are just that discouraged. We have a workforce participation rate that remains the lowest in nearly 40 years. We have a Russian dictator, who was emboldened by the weakness of Obama and Hillary Clinton — who gives a former KGB Colonel a damn yellow toy? And all the leftist media wants to talk about is some freaking Miss Universe from 20 years ago and audio from 11 years ago?
This represents the desperation of the leftists and their need to deploy their all hands on deck accomplices of the Orwellian media establishment elites to provide cover. See, there is a whole portion of this Country who have not a clue about what’s happening. If Hillary Clinton wants to talk about Trump’s taxes, well, let’s talk about her Clinton Foundation. If Hillary Clinton wants to talk about Trump’s business, let’s talk about her losing $6B while head of the State Department. If Hillary Clinton wants to talk about character, let’s talk about abandoning Americans to die for 13 hours and lying about the combat engagement, as you had a live feed from an unarmed drone.
I’ve had it with this crappy liberal progressive media. And here’s a warning, since you don’t want to report what’s actually happening in the world, there will be a consequence. Many across this great Nation know of your blatant and obvious collusion with the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton campaign, like CNN’s Wolf Blitzer dancing and singing at the DNC convention. A solid contingent of folks are going to ensure you are not dancing and singing the evening of November 8th.
As for Donald Trump and this audio tape from 11 years ago, “what difference at this point does it make”…seems that rant worked for a corrupt liar who did not answer the 3am call and had an Ambassador and three other Americans killed on her watch.
