Breitbart, I think, gave a speech every bit as good as the one Allen West gave earlier. Both men “get it”; the left in America is seriously out to destroy society as we know it and replace it with something that won’t work. Can’t ever work. Has never worked, and never will.
They use their Alinsky playbook to their advantage, and as Breitbart explains, we have their playbook and are turning it back against them – something the GOP and most major candidates don’t quite get yet.
Well, Breitbart here announces he’s going to finally do the job the media refuses to do; vet the candidate Obama all the way through his college days. He also tells the story of “the Super Bowl Party from hell” he attended with Tucker Carlson at Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn’s “humble” abode.
“Barack Obama is a radical,” he goes on, “we should not be afraid to say that.” I’ll agree wholeheartedly to that, but in doing so you have to be ready to back it up with facts, and many candidates aren’t fast enough on their feet to do so. Gingrich could do it, Romney, nope. And Santorum, sad to say, looks petulant when he gets riled. His staff could work on that, provided they’re not full of “yes men” who won’t tell him the truth.
Below, Breitbart shows how it’s done.

When I first saw this an half hour ago, I thought it a recent test firing. Now looking at the date it’s actually from December 2010, but it’s still cool to see.
A railgun doesn’t use an explosive charge to fire the projectile. Instead, it uses electromagnets to pull the projectile along until it leaves the weapon. The projectile doesn’t contain explosives, but at a muzzle velocity of around 11,000 feet per second (about Mach 10!) the force of impact would probably at least equal that of an conventional explosive. Plus, not having the danger of all that explosive ordinance on board makes a happier Navy.
BAE Systems, along with partners IAP Research and SAIC, participated in a record-setting shot measuring 33-megajoules (MJ) of muzzle energy set by the Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) experimental Electromagnetic Railgun launcher on December 10, 2010. The shot broke ONR’s previously held world record of 10.64MJ of muzzle energy achieved in Jan. 2008.
A MJ is a measurement of energy associated with a mass traveling at a certain velocity. For example, a one-ton vehicle moving at 100 mph equals a MJ of energy.
The experimental Electromagnetic Railgun launcher used for the demonstration was developed through a team led by BAE Systems, after which BAE Systems showcased their advanced composite prototype railgun to Navy leaders.
BAE Systems received a $21 million contract from ONR in February 2009 to design and develop an advanced containment railgun prototype.
