Fire John Boehner NOW!

Fire John Boehner NOW! As in, yesterday.

I did go to the polls -- to vote for Virgil Goode -- which is the first time in my life I did not vote for a Republican for president. It has gotten so the very mention of "Republican" makes me nauseous. The Republican party is pathetic. They have joined with Democrats to become enemies of the people. They must present an actual alternative, or be destroyed.

Time to Face Facts

I had hoped that Newt would perform better on Super Tuesday, perhaps taking Tennessee. It now looks as though his weakness is endemic. It is time for Nest to get out and make this a two-man race. I do not believe that Romney will survive on those terms. Romney is an extremely weak frontrunner. Santorum has emerged as the only viable anti-Romney. I voted for Newt last night, and I still think he is the right man, but it is time to move on.

Some people say that Newt has it in for Romney and is out for vengeance. If that is true, he will get out now and let Romney take his medicine.

Newt Gingrich Live Teleconference

I'm on a conference call with other Newt Gingrich donors. Newt is speaking live from GA. I've been asked to donate more money, but I really can't do it. My life consists of scraping pennies right now. I am the smallest of small donors.

The call begins with Amy Pass, Newt's financial director, recounting Newt's record, including the only serious welfare reform in our lifetimes.

Amy turns it over to Herman Cain, speaking from CA. Herman says that the Karl Roves of the world are trying to steer the race towards the "inevitable" one. Herman says that Newt will do much better in Tennessee than the media is leading us to believe. "I believe that tomorrow morning we are going to see results that exceed some people's expectations." "We don't need a custodian in the White House." (Only Herman Cain could get by with this characterization. Ha ha.)

Newt says that Rove's analysis of the delegate count is flawed. Newt turns it over to "Randy" who basically says that the race is far from over, many of the delegates are proportioned, and they see a path to victory. Three to four weeks from now they expect to be in sound shape with respect to delegates.

There is an extremely annoying "deedle" on the line. It's difficult to hear the speaker over it. The connection is horrible. so I'm ending it here.

Amy says that 97 percent of Newt's donors have given less than $250. Newt is the average Joe's candidate.

"The way to change the establishment is to beat it." -- Newt

Andrew Breitbart -- Genuine, Warrior

I've been working all day and was out on a project when i got the news. God bless Andrew Breitbart. I only hope that the left hates me half as much as they did him before I die. Being hated by slimeballs is the measure of a pretty good life. It means you're doing something right.

Few Worries about Bird Flu, Plenty about Man-Flu

Scientists have successfully, purposefully engineered a highly communicable version of bird flu virus. Previously the virus was only rarely transmitted from bird to human, and virtually never from human to human. It is just me, or is this action incredibly stupid and self-destructive? Via Theodore Dalrymple:

According to The Lancet, researchers have now genetically-engineered strains of bird flu that can pass easily  from ferret to ferret (the animal model often used in flu research) by means of aerosol, that is to say by air exhaled from the lungs. This demonstrates the possibility that a bird flu virus could emerge that would threaten the health of mankind.

The first justification for deliberately engineering a bird flu virus that is easily transmitted from ferret to ferret is that it alerts the world to the potential hazard to public health posed by the virus, thus countering a dangerous complacency about it; the second is that it might aid attempts to produce a vaccine against or a treatment of the illness. But critics argue that the research actually increases the risks of disaster rather than reduces them, either by inadvertence or (if the technique for engineering viruses fell into the wrong hands) by malice.

This is tantamount to going around setting forest fires to alert the public to the danger of fire.

Romney's Three Percent

Romney barely wins his home state, in the north, where he is supposed to be most popular, by three percent. Erick Erickson says, "And this is our nominee — a guy who can only win in states with a home state advantage, New Englanders and New England transplants, and Mormoms."

Yeah, the Republican establishment sure can pick 'em can't they? One middle-the-road, Democrat half-breed candidate after another. Sheesh.

I remain enthused about Newt, whether anyone else is or not. If Romney is the nominee, we will lose. I suspect the Republicans actually prefer it that way. They would rather lose than see real reform occur, and make themselves subject to losing some of their own power. Conservatives are in the awkward position of expecting government to help reform itself. That's about like expecting a demon to exorcise itself. We're in a war for the life and soul of our country, and some people just don't get it. I have no idea how anyone thinks that we will get anywhere with a status quo candidate like Romney.

Kay Bailey Hutchison on Obama's Damaging Energy Policy

"President Obama's policy has resulted in an unprecedented slowdown in new exploration and production of oil and gas. Offshore drilling permits are being issued at less than half the rate of the previous administration. The average number of leases issued on public lands is less than half than during President Clinton's term. Not only will the slowdown in domestic production drive up fuel prices, it also takes away jobs from tens of thousands of oil industry workers.

"The same is true for the Keystone pipeline. It would produce thousands of good-paying construction jobs and tens of thousands more at U.S. refineries and suppliers. That pipeline would assure the U.S. of 830,000 barrels of needed oil daily -- not from halfway around the world, but from our friend to the north, Canada. After four years of environmental reviews and regulatory approvals, the Obama Administration is still stalling. If we wait, the Canadians have indicated they can ship their oil to China, and a huge opportunity will have been lost."

Government doesn't just Encourage the Mob: It is the Mob

The IRS is targeting Tea Party groups. Who knew this could happen? Meanwhile, no matter how many laws OWS breaks, they are treated with kid gloves.

[T]he Richmond Tea Party, [is] a group which applied for tax-exempt charitable status in December 2009.

“After waiting two and a half years for approval,” Radtke wrote, “the IRS recently communicated a new set of overly-burdensome and invasive demands for information that exceed the scope of the IRS code.”

Those demands, Radtke said in a press release, included the answers to “12 additional questions in 53 separate parts.” The Richmond Tea Party was also ordered to hand over a list of all its donors and volunteers.

Krathammer says "One word: Algae"

 "Get in early" on algae, says Charles Krauthammer, "Obama's on to something." Krauthammer is impressed with Obama's "cutting edge" energy policy.

Newt Gingrich Slams President Obama over Koran Apology

Newt Gingrich takes it to the president -- again. It certainly can't hurt Newt to be on the cutting edge of the news cycle. Gingrich made headlines yesterday by slamming Obama for his support of infanticide, and he makes them again today by criticizing Obama for "bowing to dictators" (figuratively speaking) once more as he apologizes for the U.S. military's destruction of coded copies of the Koran. It is a smart strategy. Those counting Gingrich out may end up with egg on their faces again.
"There seems to be nothing that radical Islamists can do to get Barack Obama's attention in a negative way and he is consistently apologizing to people who do not deserve the apology of the President of the United States period," the ex-House Speaker said while stumping in Washington state.

Let me remind you that the U.S. military burned bibles in the recent past, deeply offending Christians here at home, for which no one received any apologies as far as I know. Obama saves his apologies for our enemies.

(CNN) -- Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans, a Defense Department spokesman said Tuesday.

Newt Gingrich had the Courageous Arizona Debate Message

Once more, Newt rises above the stage by putting his finger on the obvious. The things Newt says just resonate with me. Gingrich has had so many outstanding, courageous debate moments over past weeks and last night only improved his stature. His were the two standout moments of the debate in my opinion.

First came the moment when the moderator insisted on a protracted discussion surrounding contraception. By this action, John King and CNN framed the debate on leftist terms while completely ignoring for the entirety of the debate (1) Arizona's collapsed mortgage industry and (2) the spiking fuel prices that are on everyone's mind, but I digress. Newt took the opportunity to shift the spotlight from contraception to Obama's outright endorsement of infanticide. Now that is a courageous conservative position which is already throwing the left into fits of apoplexy.

Second, Newt Gingrich was the only one on the stage willing to call the auto bailouts exactly what they are: payoffs to unions. While Santorum and Romney danced around the real issue, Gingrich was the one courageous enough and willing to state the obvious. This is the boldness that conservatives should be embracing. As far as I'm concerned, there really is no one else in the race.

Santorum did not have a great night. I'm hoping for a resurgence of the only real conservative reformer in the race. Newt is the only person willing to shake things up in Washington.

Religious Enviro-Nazi Attempts to Order Hit on Fur Wearer

It is past time for left-wing religious extremism to enter the public lexicon. Left wing religious zealots are a serious threat to our nation's safety and future.

An Ohio woman who compared animal-welfare work to the liberation of World War II concentration camps has been charged with soliciting a hit man to fatally shoot or slit the throat of a random fur-wearer, federal authorities said.

In her estimation, a human life is worth the grand total of $850. People spend more than that on their dogs every day. And if she is not pro-abortion, I'll be shocked.
