It took us a few years to wise up regarding one of the biggest megalomaniacs in American politics today - ex-Congressman Allen West.

To our everlasting regret, we fell for his self-promoting pronouncements at first, and thought he actually had some integrity.

He still has many thousands of conservatives - who agree with us here at MCC on many issues - completely snowed as to his real character, or lack of same.

If you want to see why we inducted him into our MilitaryCorruption.com HALL OF SHAME, be sure to read the items below. Then, you will see why - when for the first time in ten years, we asked his help in exposing the pampered and protected BS-artist, Maj. Jill Metzger,
(West sat on the House Armed Services Committee), he gave us the back of his hand.

Now, the latest stunt by this loose cannon is to grab headlines by proclaiming something that even the Obama White House wouldn't be stupid enough to do - charge a brave Navy officer with "breaking the law" - illegally discharging a firearm on federal property - when he used his personal handgun to fight off the Muslim nut-job that attacked a military installation in Chattanooga, Tenn.

You can take it to the bank, folks, that neither Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and his boss, Barak Hussein Obama, wouldn't dare pull such a stunt now, especially in view of the firestorm that arose over their ass-kissing rat-deserter Bowe Bergdahl, when the White House claimed the weirdo sergeant had "served with honor and distinction."

"Flood the phone of Mabus and (Secretary of Defense) Ash Carter and ask them whose side they are on." West commanded on his blog.

"Demand the charges being brought against LT CMDR Timothy White be immediately dropped. If those charges are not dropped," said the humble West, "I will personally lead the charge to have Carter and Mabus removed from their positions."

The fire-breathing failed politician goes on the state, "I never like to be reactionary . . . follow anything that might be hyperbole . . . I held off on addressing the issue until I got confirmation . . .

"Ladies and Gents, [sounds like a carnival snake-oil salesman here], resulting from the text message I received yesterday, I can confirm that the United States Navy is bring charges . . ."

Save the above, dear reader. The only thing that is sure to happen as a result of all this, is more suckers will send money to professional patriot West. He may already be a millionaire. We don't know if he belongs in the looney bin or not. But probably, if he is indeed "crazy," West in crazy like a fox.


TO OUR READERS

LTC ALLEN WESTBack in 2011 we inducted one of the biggest phonies in American politics into our MilitaryCorruption.com HALL OF SHAME.

When the self-proclaimed "Guardian of the Republic," former Congressman Allen West, got in trouble out in Iraq for putting his troops' safety ahead of political correctness, we backed him up.

In 2008, when the retired Army lieutenant colonel ran for a House seat in Florida, we did something we almost never do - MCC endorsed a candidate for office. In that race, we raised money for West and gave him our enthusiastic support.

By 2010, West ran again with our endorsement, and this time won. We congratulated him and he even took our phone calls. But that was because we never asked him to do anything - not until we requested the congressman help us from his seat on the House Armed Services Committee in exposing the Jill Metzger cover-up.

She was the Air Force major who faked her abduction in Kyrgyzstan and slapped all genuinely-disabled American military veterans across the face by running in both the Air Force and Marine Corps Marathons while at the same time, sucking up big bucks on the "temporary" disabled list.

THE LOYALTY OF A SNAKE

One would think West, who never misses a chance to boast about his Iraq war service, would be equally outraged, but no. He gave us the back of his hand.

During his one term in office, he earned a reputation for inflammatory, over-the-top remarks that only hurt the conservative cause he claims to profess. Some people even questioned his sanity. There is a fine line between megalomania and outright madness.

The voters of his Florida district soon grew tired of his antics and he was deservedly defeated for re-election, despite spending tons of well-meaning conservative folks' money who were fooled into thinking he was worthy of their financial support.

West still hits the bricks these days hustling up contributions from people who buy his kettle of rotten fish. We don't, and apologize to our readers for being taken in by him in the first place.

His induction into the MilitaryCorruption.com HALL OF SHAME, instead of our HALL OF FAME, is most appropriate.

LTC ALLEN WEST, USA (RET.)

Harry Truman said it best. If you really want a friend in Washington, get a dog.

We found that out when we asked Congressman Allen West (R-Fla.) to help us expose and correct wrongdoing that has not only disgraced the United States Air Force, but cost the taxpayers several million dollars.

What we are referring to is the Maj. Jill Metzger cover-up (see related stories box below).

WHY WON'T TAXPAYERS "FRIEND" DO SOMETHING?

One would think a Tea Party darling and favorite of political conservatives everywhere would be eager to speak out about this egregious case.

Genuinely disabled veterans everywhere hold Metzger in disdain for her arrogant actions while on the TDRL list for three years - incredibly running in the Air Force and Marine Corps Marathons while at the same time collecting pay for an alleged 100% "disability."

On MilitaryCorruption.com, we pointed out combat-wounded veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan have come back to the States missing body parts and got less than the 100% out-of-the-box "disability" award that Gen. Gary North's favorite personnel officer easily obtained

Now the pampered and protected one is back on active duty - presto - 100% "disability" gone. She's eagerly awaiting her promotion to lieutenant colonel.

Oh, that little "problem" about her phony "abduction" in Kyrgyzstan in 2006 that damaged our foreign relations, almost lost us use of Manas air base, cost the U.S. taxpayers several million dollars to pay for 24 - count 'em - 24 OSI agents to search six months for her fictional "kidnappers," the total lack of accountability by anyone involved in this case, and the glaring double-standard of justice under the UCMJ that has seriously damaged Air Force morale - well, don't be concerned about that.

Former Army LTC Allen West, who sits on the Armed Services Committee, isn't.

His staffer, Josh Grodin, apparently thinks we are stupid. You see, we got the "paper shuffle" routine that most congress critters use to "blow off" constituents and/or concerned Americans who have a legitimate concern.

WHY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HELD IN LOW REGARD

It's the old "don't call us, we'll call you" routine.

Grodin informed us that our complaint and copies of past news articles on this case had been passed on "to the committee" and IF Congressman West heard anything back, he'd "be in touch."

Yeah, right.

So far, two months of silence. Why are we not surprised?

FORGETTING WHO YOUR FRIENDS ARE

We even got a call back in September from West. He had very little to say, as he wouldn't commit himself at all (they learn fast when they get elected). He just listened. Not listening as we'd hoped, however - thinking of ways to help expose this injustice and rape of the taxpayers, to say nothing of the disrespect shown to Metzger's fellow members of the USAF. No, apparently he was thinking of a way to avoid getting "involved."

One time we asked a senator for help, and the thug leaned across his desk and snarled "What's in it for me?" West didn't do that. He just went AWOL when we needed him.

The colonel no longer wants our help. Apparently he's forgotten we not only fought hard for him when he was in big trouble back in Iraq and could have ended up in the Leavenworth DB, we endorsed and helped raise money for him when he ran for office in 2008 and again in his successful campaign for Congress last year.

But a politician who's an incumbent with higher ambitions is prone to discard "friends" and ordinary supporters along the way.

ARE HIS "EYES ON THE PRIZE?"

Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is frequently mentioned as being a vice-presidential candidate for the GOP in 2012. If he vacates his office in January 2013, that opens up a senate seat for the ambitious West. Would the ex-Army officer jump at a chance to tap conservative contributors once again? Is the Pope Catholic? Does a bear take a dump in the woods?

What sealed it for us with West was when the "courageous" congressman refused to even put one of our carefully-documented stories on the Metzger scandal into the Congressional Record. "I am unable to do that," he piously pronounced, failing to explain why. Guess he never heard of former Defense Secretary and ex-Wisconsin Congressman Les Aspin.

A one-time Army captain and long time critic of military waste and corruption, Aspin placed hundreds of articles exposing such wrongdoing in the Record. West can't be bothered to include one.

That saying "fool us once, shame on you; fool us twice, shame on us" applies here.

We gave you a decade of support, Mr. Congressman, and didn't ask for a dime or a "thank-you." Now that you've blown us off, we regrettably add you to our HALL OF SHAME. You qualify as one who full-well knows the extent of corruption in today's military - you were almost a victim of it.

But once you got elected and became a Republican super-star, it's MilitaryCorruption.com who? Or should we say, Jill Metzger who? In any case, with 20/20 hindsight, we're glad you didn't share a foxhole or rice paddy with us during our editor's years (1966-69) in combat in Vietnam. If you had, we might have looked around, once the shooting started, and found ourself suddenly alone.
