Locals Fighting for Freedom

In 2021, in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, a group of citizens concerned by the unprecedented moves of the federal government decided they wanted to take action to protect the Constitution locally. Troubled by the sight of cities going in flames, violence rising, and morals and freedoms declining, these citizens decided to exercise their civic duty and take action to protect their county.

Press Release: Enemies Foreign… and Domestic

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.” So said Roman statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero. In his most recent TownHall OpEd, ACRU Executive Director Allen West highlights the unconstitutional and, treasonous, actions undermining the sovereignty of our Constitutional Republic.

Von Spakovsky: DHS Flouts Law on Student Visas, and DC Circuit Judges Yawn

For yet another exampansle of how out-of-control federal bureaucrats think they can stretch the law beyond recognition to meet their policy preferences, look no further than a recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The F-1 student visa program that allows foreigners to enter the country and study at American universities is the center of the case, Washington Alliance of Technology Workers v. Department of Homeland Security.

Allen West: If At First You Don’t Succeed… Keep Doing Stupid Stuff

We all grew up understanding the maxim,"if at first you don't succeed, try, try again." However, that maxim was intended to provide encouragement to learn from previous failures while showing perseverance. In the military we were taught to improvise, adapt, and overcome. Sadly, today there are those who have embraced Albert Einstein's pure definition of insanity, "Do the same thing over and over again, expecting different results." Those people have evidenced themselves to be the progressive socialist left, aka the Democrat party, the political establishment, and their media accomplices.

Allen West: Everyone and Everything Is Racist….if You Disagree With the Left

During the 2020 election cycle, Joe Biden made the abhorrent claim that being Black was contingent upon voting for him. He infamously asserted, "if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." Doggone, what shall I list as my ethnicity on my ATF Form 4473 the next time I go to purchase a firearm, as a law-abiding citizen? The new line of attack for the progressive socialist left in America is to denigrate anyone and everything as racist. It is what we are witnessing as cultural Marxism manifests in absurdities such as critical race theory and equity programs. To the left, it is simple, divide America into two categories, oppressors and oppressed.

Allen West: The Left’s Hatred of America

Fast forward to today and there is no debate that progressives, socialists, Marxists, statists, and communists have but one goal in mind. It is the objective articulated by Barack Obama, America's first openly socialist president, in the final days of the 2008 election. He stated at a rally in Columbia, Missouri, "we are just five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

Media Availability: Allen West, Race and American Exceptionalism

In a new OPED for American Constitutional Rights Union, Executive Director Lt. Col. Allen West writes, “This past Thursday evening at the University of Buffalo (UB), I was invited by the Young America's Foundation Chapter at UB to deliver a presentation on “Race and American Exceptionalism.”  Before I even arrived, the nature of my visit was made controversial when students on the campus ripped down flyers and even conducted a campus walking protest. Therefore, I knew this would be quite a hostile environment. The question I have is, why?”
