GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney won a majority of the 10 “Super Tuesday” presidential primary and caucus states March 6, though the unconvincing victory has many pundits wondering when Romney will be able to land the “knockout" blow against his rivals. If Romney does not garner the requisite 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the nomination by the time Republicans meet in Tampa during the week of August 27, the result may be a "brokered" convention. This occurs when no candidate is nominated following the first ballot, and delegates previously pledged to a single candidate are released to switch their votes to other candidates.
Just before 8:00 p.m. in an auditorium packed to the rafters, a well-dressed local GOP leader stood in front of over 2,000 anxious and animated Idahoans and declared, “The Ron Paul Revolution is a revolution whose time has come!” The thunderous applause and chants of “End the Fed!” swept the good doctor onto the stage and the din grew to an impressive ear-drum-bursting boom.
A Detroit mother is fighting mad after school officials defied her specific instructions and gave her daughter four vaccinations, including one that has been linked to adverse physical reactions and even death in its recipients.
Along with a relaunch of the newly designed Breitbart.com, Andrew Breitbart’s last column before his death was published Sunday, and it exposed the President in "a story that should swing the first hammer against the glass wall the mainstream media has built around Barack Obama." Entitled "The Vetting, Part I: Barack’s Love Song to Alinsky," the article busts open the lid on a controversial event that Obama attended in 1998: A play staged in Chicago, titled The Love Song of Saul Alinsky, which championed the life and political ideology of the infamous Chicagoan "community organizer" Saul Alinsky.

The scandal known as “Fakegate,” perpetrated by prominent global warming activist/scientist Peter Gleick, continues to reverberate. Gleick has taken a leave of absence from his position as president of the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment, and Security, and the Institute’s board has announced that it is conducting an investigation of the Fakegate affair. While some of Gleick’s climate activist confreres have decried his unethical actions and have bemoaned the fact that it is already further undermining public confidence in the claims of global warming alarmists, others are cheering and applauding Gleick’s actions as justified and heroic.

In another purported attempt to spur "job creation," Senate Democrats will try to transform their $109-billion transportation bill into law this week. In this delicate economic time, and as the federal government continues to deepen the nation’s mounting deficit, the call for roads, bridges, and trains has met resistance. So congressional leaders are reverting to the Democratic rally cry that has become ingrained in the Obama administration’s political ideology: Government creates jobs.
