Lt. Col. Allen West may no longer be in Congress, but his time fighting to protect the nation he once put his life on the line to serve in the field of combat is far from over.
The former U.S. Congressman from Florida has relocated to Texas in recent years, and he is prepared for the final battle to save his nation. West’s recent book, “Hold Texas, Hold the Nation: Victory or Death,” explains that Texas is the last frontier to save the country that is on the precipice of socialism and despair.
West is running to be the state party chair for the Texas Republican Party, challenging incumbent James Dickey in next year’s race. He explained in an interview last week with Yantis Green of San Angelo Live that he is uniquely qualified to lead the party as the state fends off a blue wave that threatens the future of Texas and the rest of America along with it.
“We need to get people to understand what makes Texas special. We need to get those folks to understand why there’s only one flag that can fly at the same height as the American flag,” West said, referring to new arrivals moving to Texas from other states such as himself.
West believes that Texas has become a victim of its own success, and the bustling economy and shared prosperity are rapidly changing the demographic make-up of the state. Multinational corporations are bringing in workers from other more liberal states who are in turn voting for Democrats and putting the future of the state in serious jeopardy.
West also thinks that he can heal the party and provide some stable leadership to after state house speaker Dennis Bonnen’s sharp fall from grace. After going to war with grassroots Republicans over his support of gun control, Bonnen announced that he will not be seeking election after being caught making backroom deals on an embarrassing audio tape that was released to the public.
“There are three things that leadership is all about: it’s honor, integrity and character,” West explained. “And when I look at Speaker Bonnen and the position that he’s in as speaker of the House of the great state of Texas, we need to have someone of impeccable character, and not what we have heard from that tape that has just recently came out.”
Some of the audio of Bonnen’s brazen cronyism can be heard here:
If he is elected as state party chairman, West assures the people of Texas that he will do everything in his power to eject dishonorable and disreputable individuals like Bonnen from positions of authority within the Republican Party. He will also reverse the losing trends that are occurring under current party leadership.
“In the 2018 election cycle, we lost 12 state house seats. We lost two state senate seats. We lost two US Congressional seats. We lost 56 judgeships,” West said.
“The fact that you have people like Nancy Pelosi coming to the state of Texas three weekends ago saying that we’re going to turn Texas blue and it’s going to be wholesome for America. We’ve got to shut that down,” he added, mentioning that he will lead the Texas GOP to fight radical Democrats “like hell.”
The Republican Party of Texas state convention will take place next year from May 11th to the 16th at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX.

HUGE: 5th Circuit Court Affirms Texas Abortion Ban During Coronavirus Pandemic
A big league victory for sanity.
The 5th Circuit Court has issued a decision allowing the state of Texas to ban elective abortions during the coronavirus pandemic, as medical supplies are in high demand to treat victims of the illness.
The panel made the ruling by a 2-1 margin on Tuesday. The majority cited “the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health” in making their decision.
Breaking: 5th Circuit rules for Texas in case over coronavirus abortion ban. Judge Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, cites "the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health."

Judges Stuart Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, and Jennifer Elrod, an appointee of George W. Bush, made up the majority while Judge James Dennis, a Clinton appointee, dissented with the ruling.
“That settled rule allows the state to restrict, for example, one’s right to peaceably assemble, to publicly worship, to travel, and even to leave one’s home,” the majority wrote. “The right to abortion is no exception.”
The panel also determined that the lower court erred when they refused to apply the Supreme Court’s test to determine the constitutionality of abortion restrictions. The SCOTUS test pertains to the legal review of weighing the burden on a woman’s access to abortion services against the medical benefits of the restrictions on abortion.
The majority ultimately determined that the lower court “failed to balance (the Texas restriction’s) temporary burdens on abortion against its benefits in thwarting a public health crisis.”
“The bottom line is this: when faced with a society-threatening epidemic, a state may implement emergency measures that curtail constitutional rights so long as the measures have at least some “real or substantial relation” to the public health crisis,” Judge Duncan and Judge Elrod wrote in their majority opinion.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a guidance last month declaring that all abortions “not medically necessary to preserve the life or health” of the woman would be considered a “non-essential” medical service throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors who refuse to comply and murder babies in the womb despite the order are subject to “penalties of up to $1,000 or 180 days of jail time.”
The Democrat on the panel is dismayed with the opinion of the majority and would have preferred to keep the baby-mutilating industry going in Texas while coronavirus poses a serious threat to public safety.
“In a time where panic and fear already consume our daily lives, the majority’s opinion inflicts further panic and fear on women in Texas by depriving them, without justification, of their constitutional rights, exposing them to the risks of continuing an unwanted pregnancy, as well as the risks of travelling to other states in search of time-sensitive medical care,” Dennis wrote.
Because of this ruling, Texas is permitted to make common-sense decisions to conserve medical supplies during an unprecedented crisis.
