Allen West: Country Is at "DEFCON 1"; Offers to Run the House of Representatives by Himself

Categories: WTFlorida

More than 80 U.S. lawmakers are headed to Israel during Congress' vacation, but Rep. Allen West said yesterday he's more than ready to come back to the House floor and run the place by himself.

Both chambers of Congress are in recess until September 5, which hasn't been sitting too well with several political action committees, newspaper columnists, citizens, and even a couple of congressmen -- now including West.

In an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren yesterday, West said he thinks the country is at "DEFCON 1" -- the highest level in the military's alert system, which reached "DEFCON 3" on 9/11 and "DEFCON 2" during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

"I am here as a member of the United States House of Representatives, and we have a serious situation here in our country," West said in the interview. "And when I was an officer in the military, we had what was called 'DEFCON 1' -- defense condition one. That means all leaves and all passes were canceled and it was all hands on deck. And I think that we're at that point in time right now."

West has been planning to go on the lobbyist-funded trip to Israel led by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor but changed his tone a bit after being asked about it by Van Susteren.

"Well, come on back. Why don't you come back? You can come back alone," she said.

West said he'd "be happy to."

"I mean, I believe that sometimes, you do have to stand alone, and maybe that's something I would have to come back and do, and I'd be more than willing to do that," he said. "And I think that the constituents down here in CD-22 would understand me doing that, and possibly others will follow suit."

While buying a Rolex on the Internet always make sure your seller has a good and genuine track record. Look for feedbacks and other details like how long has he been selling and if he has all the legal documents with him etc. Always ask your seller any question that comes to your mind, a genuine seller will always advise you of the genuineness of the watch. If after buying your Rolex watch if you discover it's a fake thenar5905 there are few steps that you can take by contacting the website from which you bought and also contact the local police, which will help prevent future scams and may get a refund of your watch. Used Rolex watches or vintage Rolex watches are nostalgic pieces for collectors which are very rare to locate and difficult to find. Many persons choose to keep their watches as antiques and keep them functional. Many buyers also eye for the sale of Rolex watches and preferably antiques and vintage watches of the brand. This is because there are people who know, believe and rely on any type of Rolex watches as they are reputed for their quality and durability.Almost as much work goes into creating the Rolex bracelet as ar0595

the Rolex movement.Its more than 100 moving parts are conceived and crafted simultaneously to ensure perfect homogeneity. Edges are sculpted and smoothed for comfort. A new, redesigned clasp makes for easier opening and closing. The length can now be personally adjusted, providing an even more perfect fit. But ony after it is tested under some of most extreme conditions does it earn the right to become a Rolex bracelet.

Wow, what a Great Man and a Great Patriot. Allen West is exactly what this country needs to get us out of this train wreck that Obama, Pelosi, Reid and others like DWS have put us in.I am very proud of this Great Man and will do all in my power to support his re-election.

Yo, Captain America West, created any jobs since you've been in Congress? So then, other than creating sound bites for Fox every day, what the hell have you been doing? Oh, yeah, the disgraceful birthday note to the President of the United States. Right.

Its official, West has gone mad with his power.  To think that he can run the entire congress on his own?  Would that not be setting himself as a dictator?Also gotta laugh when the right wingers show their evangelical side and fly off to Israel.  Knowing West an his buddies, he would probably try to sneak into the Mosque of the Rock an try to burn it down since it is so close to Ground Zero.  Never mind that the action would start the next world war almost instantly.What a putz.

If West were to come back to the House of Representatives alone, I will be placing the nation on its highest alert.

P.S.  Who are you bullshitting, Allen? Go on your trip so you--and the rest of the AIPAC shills in Congress-- can receive your marching orders from your masters.

Why don't you pause for a moment and take his penis out of your mouth? Where is your hero going this month to solve this nation's economic crisis?

To a nation that we give billions of dollars of aid to each year, one that runs a surplus and doesn't need our handout.  

And ironically, there are presently hundreds of thousands of good Israelis protesting in the street because they too suffer under the rule of a government that misallocates billions of dollars every year and spends it on military hardware.

So much Hate from you. You are a perfect example of the Intolerant Left and the Welfare Mindset.Face it, your boy Obama and his band of misfits blew it. Your ideas have bankrupted America. Now all you can do is spew hatred. I feel pity for you closed minded welfare mentality failures.

No hate at all. I was just pointing out that you have nothing to offer other than the usual "Obama bad....Ook, Ook". Your level of analysis of our nation's problems is stunningly ignorant and devoid of any facts. Do any of you teatards have an original thought?

P.S. Shecky Greene called. He said you need a new head writer. You material is stale.

how about some hate from someone who's perfectly willing to say both parties are equally responsible for our plight, but who saves special scorn for useless politicians who are also thinly disguised fascists?you might also want to check yourself before you wreck yourself. virgil actually cited specific examples about how awry things are and all you have to say is that someone "blew it" with their "ideas" and "welfare mentality." you may as well blame it on the spanish inquisition.

Problem is that it was not President Obama that ran us into this mess but rather Bush jr and his cohorts.  It was him who started these wars, deregulated everything, and gave trillions to the banks.  Then, when he left, the shock of having a black president made all the repubs do their best to make sure nothing happened so that they can blame President Obama.Sad when no one knows their own bloody history.
