Allen West 'NUTS!' Letter Provides Nice Payout For CAIR

"Weeks after taking to eBay to auction off a bizarre letter it received from former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) in 2011, the Florida chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations has cashed in on the piece of political memorabilia.

The item, listed as "Allen West NUTS Letter Possibly Shortest Letter from Congress in US History," began at a starting price of $1,000. It ultimately sold for $2,625, after receiving 15 bids.

In 2011, local leaders of CAIR called on West to denounce anti-Muslim activists that they believed to be involved with his campaign. The Tea Party congressman responded with a one-word retort.

"NUTS!" West's letter read, printed on his official congressional stationery.

CAIR addressed the sale in a statement to the press on Tuesday.

"We are taught in Islam to meet a bad deed with a good deed," the statement reads. "So we turned Allen West's bad deed into 2,625 good deeds. We thank Allen West for his 'NUTS'! Every penny of these monies will be used to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding."

There has been no response from West yet, but the fact that CAIR has profited off his letter could come as a slap in the face, considering the group's status as one of his primary adversaries during his short tenure in Congress.

West had a notoriously strained relationship with Muslims during his campaign and single term in office. During a town hall meeting, he once told a CAIR questioner not to "blow sunshine up my butt" after the man rose to ask West to clarify his remarks about a passage of the Quran.

West is currently embarking on a new career in conservative media and has ruled out a 2014 run for his old congressional seat."

Ah, yes, no wonder the poor woman even abandoned her children to get away from you once she had enough to support herself without your "Whites of West Virginia" tactics.
Evidently your babydaddy took off and left you to collect your Obama welfare and foodstamps; no wonder you support Obama and no wonder your babydaddy left you.

More from our next President, Hillary Clinton

----------

In one of her last acts as America’s top diplomat, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hit back hard Wednesday at fierce Republican criticisms over the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton, delivering long-awaited congressional testimony, alternately choked up, pounded the table in anger, laughed and offered clinical replies while vowing to do her utmost to prevent similar tragedies in the future.

“For me, this is not just a matter of policy—it’s personal,” she told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as the 2 1/2-hour hearing got underway.

Clinton’s voice broke as she recalled welcoming home the “flag-draped caskets” of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans killed in the terrorist strike at the compound, and putting her arms around bereaved family members.

And she hit the witness table with her fist several times during a contentious exchange with Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who accused President Barack Obama’s administration of misleading Americans by initially saying the attack grew out of a protest against an Internet video mocking Islam. There was no such demonstration, as officials later acknowledged. Johnson said,“We were misled.”

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest? Or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make,” Clinton scolded Johnson, raising her voice.“It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”

----------

Rumor has it that Ron Johnson broke down in tears after being rebuked so thoroughly by Ms. Clinton.

In his questioning of Clinton, Sen. Rand Paul, R- Ky., told her,“I’m glad that you’re accepting responsibility. I think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and I really mean that. Had I been president at the time and I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi, you did not read the cables from Ambassador Stevens, I would have relieved you of your post.”

He added,“It’s a failure of leadership” which cost the Americans in Benghazi their lives.“I think it’s good that you’re accepting responsibility-- because no one else is.”

Paul also argued that U.S. personnel ought to never have been sent to Benghazi “in a war zone” without a military guard.“You shouldn’t send them in with the same kind of embassy staff that you have in Paris,” he added.

Rand Paul is the man of the hour.

If so, you're even dumber than you've presented yourself as.
Until it has reached th eSupreme Court and a decision is reached, every one of these tinhorn sheriffs can be arrested and jailed for failure to uphold US Law.
Funnyhow the so called "Patriots" are the first to declare that they will disobey the laws of the USA.
