On Independence Day 2021, Lt. Col. Allen West ignited a GOP explosion as he announced his run for governor of Texas against fellow a Republican, incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott.
Article by Joe Kovacs from WND.
West, who recently stepped down as chair of the Texas Republican Party, made his announcement at Sojourn Church in Carrollton, Texas, as the former Florida congressman played a 7-minute video to launch his campaign.
Watch West’s campaign announcement:
“Now it is our time, it is our time to stand up and honor those words of Texas, Our Texas, and to secure the future for our children and our grandchildren, to make sure the growth, the opportunity, and the prosperity, the economic success that you see here in Texas, continues on,” said West.
“That means that we stay energy independent, and we fuel America, so that we’re not dependent on other nations – other nations that are our enemies.”
“To make sure that we secure our borders, to make sure that Texas is for Texans.”
“We cannot live in a state that is the number one state for human and sex trafficking in the United States of America. That’s not how we protect our children and our legacy.”
“There comes a time when a warrior understands that, maybe he has to go back, to pull out that sword, and do that exact same thing that a 26-year-old did at the Alamo. Yes, William Barret Travis,” continued West. “When he drew a line in the sand, and he challenged the defenders at the Alamo to stand on the right stand of that line. I am now drawing my sword, and I would draw that line in the sand, and I will ask you to stand with me, to preserve the future, the legacy of Texas, to honor the words of our state song, to stand for something, or as my mother would say, not fall for anything.”
“This is our moment in time, I have not been in elected political office for about a decade. But I can no longer sit on the sidelines and see what is happening to these United States of America, what is happening in the place that I call home, where my daughters will raise their families, where my young grandson will grow up as a proud Texan.”
“It’s time for grandpa to step up, and once again find his place on the ramparts of freedom and liberty, just like those Georgians and Tennesseans did many years ago, for those 13 days at the Alamo.”
“You have asked me to come back into service for God, the country, and for Texas, and for a time such as this. And that’s why I am running to be your Governor of the Lone Star State, so that we can protect and defend our home, the Republic that we call Texas.”
Meanwhile, Republican Gov. Abbott last month got endorsed for re-election by none other than former President Donald Trump. He also said Texas would construct its own border wall to complete the effort Trump commenced, and invited Trump to his state for a border tour.
West has also been a staunch supporter of Trump, but he recently brushed off concerns about Trump’s endorsement of Abbott.
“You know, I don’t serve President Trump,” West said in June, the Texas Tribune reported. “I serve God, county and Texas. So that does not affect me whatsoever.”
Upon learning of West’s run for governor, Gab.com founder Andrew Torba quipped: “Bye bye, Greg.”

New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
