Backers: Romney more open to 2016 run!

Politico ^ | December 12, 2014 | Ben White and Maggie Haberman 

For most of the past year, Mitt Romney supporters have publicly said he should consider running again. And for most of the past year, Romney has seemed uninterested. Until recently. While some people close to Romney insist he hasn’t moved from saying he has no plans to run, the 2012 Republican nominee has sounded at least open to the idea in recent conversations, according to more than a dozen people who’ve spoken with him in the past month. In his private musings, Romney has sounded less than upbeat about most of the potential candidates in the 2016 Republican field, according to the people who’ve spoken with him, all of whom asked for anonymity in order to speak freely.

PALIN ON OBAMA/BOEHNER CROMNIBUS BILL: 'IT STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN'

breitbart.com ^ | 12/12/14 | by STEPHEN K. BANNON 

1. What do you think of Speaker Boehner having President Obama 'whip votes' from the White House in order to pass this bill? It stinks to high heaven. Did arrogant politicians not get the memo that Obama’s agenda was decisively defeated in last month’s historic midterm landslide? Good Lord, America said loud and clear not just “no” but “hell no” to Obama’s failed policies. Americans who pay attention said absolutely no to Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens. We also said no to the mother-of-all unfunded mandates, Obamacare, and voters believed promises that they would ratchet down the $18 trillion debt. Well, our bad for apathetically trusting politicians. No, on second thought, it’s not “our bad.” Some of us warned and worked hard to elect candidates who would buck the status quo. Many conscientious Americans did all they could to open the eyes of low-information voters. It was tough going up against Obama’s lapdogs in the media and the power liberals have to play their politics of personal destruction against commonsense conservatives. But really how out-of-touch do these politicians have to be to misunderstand our recent mandate to stop Barack Obama's fundamental transformation of the greatest nation on earth?

Knock Knock, Who’s there? Diane Feinstein…

Townhall.com ^ | December 12, 2014 | D. W. Wilber 

With the release of Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein’s report on the CIA’s Enhanced Interrogation program, a forty million dollar joke has been perpetrated on the American people, curtesy of the California senator.
As U.S. military bases and diplomatic facilities around the world are placed on high alert for possible attacks by Muslims further inflamed by the declassified details of the report, the costs of Senator Feinstein’s ‘knock knock joke’ will continue to spiral upwards as we’re forced to ramp up additional security precautions to address the threat. Millions more will be spent, and unfortunately lives will probably be lost so that the senator can try to claim some supposed moral high ground, when the reality is that this report was released for purely partisan political purposes.
The report itself, most likely ‘cherry-pick-written’ by some young junior aides who were probably still in grammar school, and who have little understanding or appreciation for the challenges faced by our intelligence professionals tasked with protecting this country from further attacks after September 11, 2001, came to the conclusion that the EIT program was of little value, and hurt America’s reputation around the world. A conclusion reached without one single Agency participant in the program being interviewed.
Had they made the effort to carefully and objectively evaluate the program, including interviewing those involved as well as the analysts who received the intelligence information obtained from the detainees, a completely different story would have been revealed. A story that would show clearly that additional attacks had been prevented, senior terrorist leaders arrested, killed or neutralized, and America made safer.
Incidentally, there was no damage to America’s reputation as a result of this program until AFTER Democrats, with help from their allies in the liberal news media began to use it as a political football against the Bush Administration.
Now our adversaries have quickly begun to use it for propaganda purposes, as our allies shake their heads and wonder why America continues to shoot itself in the foot on the world stage.
Apparently feeling obligated to chime in, Vice President Joe Biden, true to form says something stupid about America being the only country in the world who will publicly admit our mistakes, and that somehow this makes us better than all the rest ? Here’s a news flash Joe, the rest of the world is laughing at your administration, and wondering if the United States will be able to recover once you two are gone, from the damage you and your president have caused to American leadership and prestige in the world.
America’s allies will certainly take a very long look at whether or not it’s in their best interest to cooperate with us in future endeavors, not knowing whether their participation will end up on the front page of the New York Times, or be trumpeted by pompous, holier-than-thou American news anchors.
Particularly our friends, and we do have them, in the Arab world. They are the ones who will be placed in very precarious positions once word of their assistance to us in the past has been revealed.
But Senator Diane Feinstein, ignoring the ‘law of unintended consequences’, and with the encouragement and full support of the Obama White House and one Republican useful idiot, pushed forward with releasing this report with little regard for the potential violent repercussions expected around the Muslim world.
Taking center stage the other day Senator Diane Feinstein told the world her forty million dollar ‘knock knock joke’, but unfortunately the only ones laughing now are our enemies.

Ben Carson Thinks God Is Calling On Him To Save America, Stop Putinesque Obama!

Right Wing Watch ^ | 12/10/14 | Brian Tashman 

Christian Broadcasting Network reporter David Brody has been slowly releasing excerpts from his interview with likely Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, who has told Brody that liberals are responsible for “hate speech” and that he “feels fingers” from God telling him to make a run for the White House.
Today, Brody released another segment from his interview where the conservative activist was joined by his wife, Candy, to describe how God is calling him to make a presidential bid.
“We recognize that we are being instruments in the hand of God, he is the one who really orchestrates all of this,” Carson said.
After warning that the future of America is in peril, Carson stressed that “we are in fact a Judeo-Christian nation and I think that’s a huge part of our strength.”

Red States Are Getting a New Shade of Redder-people who deny climate change!

Slate ^ | December 12, 2014 | Joshua Zaffos 

".....Yuma,Colorado, a farming town of 3,500 people near the Kansas border, celebrated last month as homegrown Republican Cory Gardner was elected to the U.S. Senate. Gardner, a high school football player and the son of a farm equipment dealer, defeated incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Udall to help the GOP gain control of the Senate in the second-most expensive congressional race of all time.
Gardner represented Colorado’s 4th Congressional District for four years, an expansive territory that covers the mostly flat and rural eastern third of the state. Farmers there mostly grow corn to feed cattle, and water comes from the quickly depleting Ogallala Aquifer.
Gardner ran for Senate as “a new kind of Republican.” That means he was bold enough to stand in front of a wind turbine and voice support for both renewable energy and natural gas. But Gardner, who leans toward the Tea Party, has also questioned whether people are causing climate change. His climate-skeptic position is ironic—and dangerous for his very constituents.
....That’s according to analysis from a forthcoming peer-reviewed study in the journal Ecosphere by Brady Allred of the University of Montana and colleagues. Allred’s study looked at political representation, agricultural and natural-resources land cover,and projected climate disruptions across the nation’s 435 U.S. House districts. The researchers discovered that the districts with the most agriculture and natural resources are predominantly represented by Republicans who, like Gardner,generally deny the science of global warming. Those districts also likely face the most severe climate changes.....
The disconnect isn’t just depressing news for climate-conscious voters in other parts of the country. The failure to act on climate issues could devastate the nation’s breadbasket. Climate change could harm corn, soy, wheat, and cattle production,affecting U.S. and global food supplies. In other words,the effects of political polarization and Republican aversion to climate action could harm everyone....

ObamaCare Supporters Should Be Very Worried, Experts Say

Investor's Business Daily ^ | 12/11/2014 | John Merline 

What would happen if the Supreme Court rules that ObamaCare doesn't allow subsidies through the federal exchange? There's plenty of speculation, ranging from no big deal to absolute, total catastrophe.
An article published on Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine tries to answer the question with a little bit more precision. It's conclusion, however, is that disallowing those subsidies would be a devastating blow to ObamaCare.
