Prayers Up – Allen West Airlifted to Hospital Following Motorcycle Crash…

Former Florida congressman Allen West led a Texas Freedom Rally at the Capitol building in Austin, Texas Saturday morning.   Returning from the rally Mr. West was involved in a motorcycle accident and airlifted to the hospital.  Prayers for his recovery.

DALLAS NEWS – Allen West, the former Florida congressman and recent candidate to chair the Texas Republican Party, was injured in a motorcycle accident just outside Waco on Saturday, according to numerous posts on social media.

“Please pray for Allen West,” Dr. Angela Graham-West, his wife, posted on Facebook early Saturday evening. She wrote that he was in the emergency room after his motorcycle was hit outside Waco. “On my way to hospital now.”

About 7:50 p.m. Saturday, an update on West’s Twitter page stated that authorities said a car had cut West off, causing him to collide with another motorcycle. He was airlifted to a hospital, where he was in stable condition and being assessed, the post stated. (more)

        • I wish him the best in his recovery. I know he was a big Bush supporter, but he remained a Never-Trumper even after the election. He was very quiet about President Trump, never really supported him, even though no one was a bigger supporter of our military and veterans than President Trump. Very strange! Are there any explanations??

            West is a patriot who supports the President and puts his money where his mouth is, unlike many other former Never Trumpers. Nuff said.

            • On his support for President Trump: Visiting Broward County for a 2017 Republican fundraiser, West said in an interview he would give President Donald Trump a “C” for his first eight months in office. On the Trayvon Martin shooting: “The shooter, Mr Zimmerman, should have been held in custody and certainly should not be walking free, still having a concealed weapons carry permit. From my reading, it seems this young man was pursued and there was no probable cause to engage him, certainly not pursue and shoot him….against the direction of the 911 responder.” Heritage Action Scorecard:70% With all of that, I still hope he gets better soon!

              I only agree when it’s a wise endeavor. Sitting on a high powered unprotected seat in the middle of a highway with NOT ONLY building size trucks careening past but vicious mad liberals GUNNING for you with a 3-4 ton flying metal object is not wise! We need to admit this is not the 1950s where people were sane, controlled and had a conscience. His motorcycle was easily recognizable with all the patriotic painting. Have we learned nothing in the last 4 + yrs what is in the souls of the wicked? Riding around the beach or a park is one thing but exposing oneself to the fury and wrath of the insane is another if we value our life. I imagine his family will scare some sense into his head. It’s not about a Sat afternoon pleasure cruise down the road with some friends; its’ about protecting ourselves from the hideous assault of the people who are determined to kill the “deplorables”. Unless you toe their agenda, you are kindling for their pyre. As I said, we can’t afford to lose one patriot in this fight for our lives and Country. Allen is part of the whole and too important to the cause. If I had to guess he had a target on his back…… and I hope that is not ‘swept under’ the motorcycle debris. We wish the LTC a speedy recovery and hope he has learned a valuable survival lesson.

        My Dad always told me that a motorcycle was an accident waiting to happen (and this was a WWII bomber pilot who flew 65 combat missions). Years ago, my friend’s dad raved about them and said they’re only as dangerous as the one driving them. His three sons all had bikes as well. One day, this dad was picking up his bike from a service shop in Oakmont, PA. As he started to leave the shop, the throttle jammed and he essentially did a wheelie out into traffic and got smashed from the side. He was injured seriously but survived. Immediately, he refused to ever ride again and made all of his sons get rid of their bikes.

        I’ve always wanted one but my sense of caution and paranoia prevented me from it. It’s dangerous enough just to be riding in a car with all of the distracted drivers out there. Learning from motorcyclists though, I ALWAYS drive with my headlights on. Not so I can see, but other drivers can see me!

          Very good to hear that Allen West is recovering.

          I loved all kinds of motorcycles, road them for more than 30 years — road,bikes, dirt bikes, racing bikes…you name it. I was employed in the motorcycle industry for much of that time. I had my share of serious spills and accidents.

          But even with my “awareness” of motorcycles, I remember starting to pull out in front of a rider while I was driving my car. I even remember seeing him approach and that his headlight was on – I still remember the sound of his exhaust as he was approaching me. An impact would probably have killed him.

          I miss my street rides.

And you must realize that this is not a religion you are fighting against, you are fighting against a theo-political belief system and construct. You’re fighting something that’s been doing this thing since 622 AD, the 7th century,1388 years.

    You want to dig up Charles Martel and ask him why he was fighting the Muslim army at the Battle of Tours in 732? You want to ask the Venetian fleet at La Ponto, why they were fighting a Muslim fleet in 1571? You want to ask the Germanic and Austrian knights why they were fighting at the Gate of Vienna in 1683? You want to ask people what happened at Constantinople and why today it’s called Istanbul because they lost that fight in 1453?

    You need to get into the Koran, you need to understand their precepts, you need to read the Sura, you need to read the hadiths, and then you can really understand that IT’S NOT A PERVERSION THEY ARE DOING EXACTLY WHAT THIS BOOK SAYS.”

    From the Breitbart piece—

    A statement released by his campaign read in full:

    On his drive back from the “Free Texas Rally” in Austin, TX, Lt. Col. Allen West was struck by a fellow motorcyclist. He is recovering now and has his family with him.

    Local law enforcement reported that “an unidentified vehicle changed lanes when unsafe in front of two motorcyclists. The motorcyclist attempted to brake, and the rear motorcyclist crashed into the front motorcyclist. Both motorcyclist were transported to Baylor Scott and White in Waco to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.”

    Allen West is currently dealing with a concussion, several fractured bones, and multiple lacerations. Though these injuries are serious, Lt. Col. West stated, “that I am alive by the grace of God.” He plans to continue to be an proponent for freedom and the state of Texas, but he will be taking the next couple weeks off of advocacy to recover.

    Your continued prayers and grace are appreciated.

    Now, we’re all entitled to opinions on every subject — including riding motorcycles. Yes, it can be dangerous. Anyone who places their rear into that saddle needs to know that. I’ve owned four in my lifetime…all big, powerful touring bikes. Before each ride, I told myself that every four-wheeled vehicle, and every critter in the woods, (and also some dumbass fellow bikers) were out to get me. I then asked the good Lord to keep me safe, and off I went.

    I enjoyed every ride…still do. I’ve been blessed…yes! I will not cower to fear…I take precautions and try to enjoy my life. Oh, also, I won’t wear a mask into a grocery store to buy a gallon of milk, either.

      I’ve been riding road bikes for decades. It’s freedom and independence. I had an accident as a teenager where a car pulled right in front of me with zero time to react. It was clearly the car driver’s fault, but the more I thought about it, I decided after that to drive like I was invisible. Which is, after all, pretty much the case.

    Having driven that stretch of I-35, around Waco many times, this is an all too often occurrence not just for motorcycles. We were forced off the road between West and Waco by an “Interstate F-1 Road Racer” and lives were saved only by the type of car we were driving.

      In our case we were fortunate enough to have a couple of Baylor Students, who witnessed the incident, actually followed the guy into Waco and got his license plate number as well as cell picture of his car. Then, they drove back to the accident site and gave it all the Texas Highway Patrol Officer assisting us. Hopefully the same occurred in this case, especially since Allen was traveling with a group of other cyclists.

To me a patriot is someone who is willing to fight (ideally willing to lay down lives, fortunes, and sacred honor) for the inalienable rights laid out in the Declaration, and codified in the Constitution, and for the process necessary for the continued well being of the Republic.

    Allen West has made it clear with the tracks in his life that he is a patriot.

    I would still like to know if he is 100% supportive of this POTUS, and if not, to what degree he is not. I think anyone who would claim to be a servant of the people, whether through military service, government servant, or leader of the Republican party, owe us full transparency.
