Allen West and his Favorite Blogger

Lt. Col. Allen West known in my circles as Congressman Mensch has found his first post-congressional job.  The former Congressman has joined PJM a their  Director of Next Generation Programming.

 NextGeneration.TV is a PJM streaming video site that discusses the issues of the day will be examined through the lens of the “next generation” (that’s youth not Star Trek) and encourages all Americans to stand up for the nation’s collective future.

According to PJM.  NextGeneration.TV uses  many forms of media such as Internet TV, social media, live events, outreach programs and newsletters, and is designed to  be a rallying place where grandparents, parents, and children can come to learn about the challenges facing our nation and to offer possible solutions for a prosperous future.

West is an American Hero who has fought for American ideals and is known for his fresh, no nonsense approach to public policy.  His patriotism, dedication to America’s future generations and ability to translate ideas into action make him the ideal choice to lead this new effort.

“I’m looking forward to contributing to NextGeneration.TV, said Congressman Allen West.  “Just as I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan and later on Capitol Hill, I will stand up for our Republic and our children’s Republic at PJ Media.”

“This is a crucial time for our nation, and the team at PJ Media is seizing the moment to offer something constructive for the country’s future,” said Roger L. Simon, CEO of PJ Media, LLC.  “Over the past seven years, our readers and our viewers have seen that we are a trusted source for analysis and insight on the topics that matter most to them. We plan to put our skilled staff and extensive resources to work on creating the content for our Next Generation programming, turning a bright light on how Americans can stand up for their future.”

Prior to joining PJ Media, Congressman Allen West served 22 years in the U.S. Army before being elected to the House of Representatives by the constituents of Florida’s 22nd district.  Throughout his time in Congress, West consistently stood for policies that would make the United States prosperous, strong and free, even when speaking up was not easy.  In January 2013, he joined PJ Media as the Director of Next Generation Programming where he is leading the effort to develop new Internet TV shows and other media that can be viewed on NextGeneration.TV starting in February 2013.

This is a great hire by PJM, and I wish Congressman Mensch all the success in the world in his new position. Although I am a bit disappointed, I was hoping Lt. Col. West would move into my neighborhood in NY and run for congress in my district.
