Allen West Rips Jeb Bush: ‘Last Thing We Need Is A Big Gov’t Republican Running Against A Bigger Gov’t Democrat’

Jeb Bush announced Tuesday that he is edging closer to deciding whether or not he would pursue a 2016 presidential run. Bush said he was “actively” exploring the decision.

That’s all it took for click-thirsty media minions to fire off their seemingly pre-written Bush VS Clinton opinion articles.

“It’s instructive to compare Jeb’s numbers in our NBC/WSJ poll to Hillary Clinton’s,” one (of many) write ups said.

However, former Congressmen and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West isn’t playing the big government establishment’s game.

He told Sean Hannity that the last thing the GOP needs in 2016 as a candidate is a “big government progressive Republican running against a bigger government progressive socialist Democrat.” (Video above.)

He added, “I think the challenge for governor Bush is going to be his policies on illegal immigration and also Common Core.”

Indeed, Jeb Bush characterized illegal immigrants breaking the law to get into America as an “act of love.” Jeb Bush has also been the Republican face of the plan to nationalize education standards through Common Core. Bush said he finds opposition to Common Core “troubling,” and said he had “lost patience” with those opposing Common Core.

Well I have no patience or like for Bush - his common core - his immigration stance or any of his other RINO political views. I will not be voting for him and will urge others to do the same.

I could not have said it better or in less words.


Favors Amnesty.
Applauds Open Borders.
Favors spreading Common Core throughout the education system.
Will NOT Repeal Obamacare. (possible tweaking)
Does NOT support Fracking.
Supports Solar Panel technology and various other Green failure programs.
Willing to talk with Liberals on portions of Gun Control. (how naive can you get?)
Favors growing the government with more spending

There's nothing more we needed to know about this RINO.

He makes an excellent point.  My only concern is, how do we plan to eliminate the Jeb Bushes and the Romnies.  Mr. West is absolutely right, we can't afford to have a non serious Presidential candidate.

Marcus... We don't have the time to fix the problem you point out for the next presidential election, but the way to keep all candidates on their toes is to abolish all political parties!

For 2016, hope we get some better candidates or beg others to jump-in. Personally, I think the perfect person for the mighty job ahead would be Allen West.


I would tend to agree with you.  But I will also say something needs to be started at some point.  We can't keep going every four year cycle praying the Republicans will finally give us a decent candidate, only to end up with the same old tired retreads trotted out time and again.  Camel's back has got to break some time.


We need a strong constitutional President.

We need a president who will quit the progressive crap of the past 7 years.

We need a president who will repeal Obama Care, seal our borders and repeal the executive orders of this current lawless president.



No more Bush, Clinton or rich bastard families buyind the presidency!!

I couldn't agree more with Mr.West ,we know from past experience the R N C will steer clear of Tea Party candidates . So our esteemed non representatives have instilled a dangerous anger in Conservatives and at the moment there is no place to turn for representation , See how many cornered animals it takes to cause a revolution.

It's going to take a hard-nose president in 2016 to begin repairing all the damage that Obama has purposely thrown on to the backs of the American people.

I think that hard-nose leader is.... Allen West!


I agree 100%. A man of honor, courage, true conservative and knows what our greatest threat is and is not afraid to say it. The muslims.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
