  • Jon Huntsman adds to the growing list of GOP elite supporting Trump

    04/30/2016 3:47:22 PM PDT · by monkapotamus · 61 replies
    AOL News ^ | April 30, 2016
    Jon Huntsman now says he supports Donald Trump's bid for the White House, calling on the rest of the GOP to rally behind the Republican presidential hopeful. The former governor of Utah told Politico: "We've had enough intraparty fighting. Now's the time to stitch together a winning coalition..." Huntsman's endorsement and others signify a rare shift for the GOP elite, who have been scrambling to stop Trump for a while. But the fear of a contested —and potentially very ugly — convention in July has caused some GOP leaders to speak out in favor of Trump...
  • The EPA Stashes BILLIONS In Slush Fund-Like Accounts

    dailycaller.com ^ | 4/30/2016 | Ethan Barton
    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have accumulated at least $6.3 billion in more than 1,300 obscure spending accounts akin to slush funds that are essentially beyond congressional, media and public scrutiny. The accounts – which were created through EPA’s Superfund program – are not technically secret because the agency officially acknowledges their existence. But getting concrete details about deposits and expenditures is extremely difficult. The EPA deposited more than $6.3 billion into an estimated 1,308 special accounts between 1990 and 2015, according to the agency’s website, and has spent more than half of the total. The agency doesn’t publicly report...

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Thursday that “recalcitrant countries” that refuse to take criminal aliens that are being deported should not get federal aid from the U.S. and the U.S. should not give those countries more visas. “They should not be getting federal aid, and we shouldn’t be giving them visas so that more people from those countries can come to the United States,” said Chaffetz during a hearing on illegal immigration crime.

    DENVER — The Environmental Protection Agency came under fire Thursday after an official said the agency would not fully cover a Colorado county’s expenses stemming from the EPA-caused toxic wastewater spill at the Gold King Mine. Colorado Republicans blasted the agency after the Durango Herald reported that an EPA official nixed some of La Plata County’s proposed cooperative agreement for $2.4 million in spill-related costs over 10 years at a Wednesday board of county commissioners meeting. Sen. Cory Gardner, Colorado Republican, described the report as “outrageous” and “yet another example of the Washington double standard,” adding that he would work...

    You might think 97-year-old Ralph Kimball of Murray, Utah, would be more careful with his hair. Instead, this World War II veteran and two-time Purple Heart recipient says with a sly chuckle, “I trust it to a kid.” That “kid″ is 91-year-old Wayne Chidester of Springville, Utah. Chidester is also a World War II veteran, and in the age of social media and digital relationships, their lengthy, loyal friendship is refreshing. Approximately once a month for more than 30 years, Kimball has visited Chidester’s barber’s chair for what he calls “the perfect haircut″ and a reminder of what matters most...

    Over the past week, our planet has been hit by large earthquake after large earthquake, and according to Volcano Discovery, there are 38 volcanoes around the world that are erupting right now. We have seen a dramatic spike in global seismic activity that is unlike anything that we have seen in ages, and that is why what is going on at Yellowstone is so incredibly alarming. Geologists tell us that a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have up to 2,000 times the power of the Mount St. Helen's volcanic eruption of 1980, and approximately two-thirds of the country...

    A proposal to name a street after pioneering gay leader Harvey Milk is the latest display of Salt Lake City standing out as a blue dot in a deep-red state where the prevailing Mormon faith still has a fraught relationship with the LGBT community. Utah's capital city recently elected its first openly gay mayor and its second sitting gay councilman, creating an increasingly friendly atmosphere for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the home of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The conservative religion's tone on gay issues has softened in recent years, but it still...

    Bowie Resources Partners’ purchase of Peabody Energy Corp.‘s Twentymile Mine in Routt County has fallen through, and Peabody has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. Peabody, the world’s largest privately owned producer of coal, joins other major coal companies including Arch Coal, owner of the West Elk Mine in the North Fork Valley, in going bankrupt. Arch Coal also is in Chapter 11 reorganization. Bowie, owner of the Bowie No. 2 Mine near Paonia, had agreed to buy Twentymile and two mine properties in New Mexico for $358 million. But Peabody previously had said Bowie was still trying to find...

    A federal appeals court on Monday dismissed a landmark decision that decriminalized polygamy in Utah, marking a legal defeat for the family from the reality TV show “Sister Wives.” Kody Brown and his four wives cannot sue the state over its ban on plural marriages because the family never faced charges and local prosecutors later said they would not prosecute consenting adults with multiple wives, according to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.

    New exhibition shows how tribe dealt with blowout last August. Navajo artist Venaya Yazzie wrote the Diné expression – Tó éí ííná – beside a photograph of a friend sullenly looking out on the tainted San Juan River in the days after the Gold King Mine spill. It means “Water is Life,” and for the indigenous tribes affected by the mine blowout in August, the words sum up months of confusion, fear and sadness surrounding the health of critical southwest waterways. On Aug. 5, the Environmental Protection Agency breached the portal of the mine north of Silverton, sending an estimated...

    As we previously reported Ted Cruz is trying to steal the election using delegates to over ride the will of the people. This is something he claimed he wouldn’t do and something the majority of people disagree with. The majority wants the party to unite behind Trump even if he doesn’t reach 1,237 delegates. The majority does not want Cruz and his establishment allies subverting the will of the people by way of delegates. The Colorado GOP tweeted this after the big steal. They have since deleted it and now claim they were hacked. It should be noted however that...

    A decade after the arrest of polygamous prophet Warren Jeffs, insiders say his church has literally become a place of feast or famine, of haves and have-nots. Prison has done little to loosen Jeffs' hold on many of his followers, even if he is now a convicted child-sex offender serving a life sentence. They still await his revelations and follow his directives, both difficult and bizarre. But some members are leaving the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - and disobeying their prophet's longstanding orders to avoid law enforcement and "answer them nothing." These FLDS outcasts are talking...

Rand Paul is not joking about supporting Donald Trump for the Republican nomination if — if — he emerges as the party's nominee in the general election. Paul said Friday morning that he would support whoever is named the Republican nominee, even if it's Trump, telling a Cincinnati Enquirer reporter during a visit to the metro area in Kentucky that backing the Manhattan businessman would be better than going for Hillary Clinton. The senator, according to the report, specifically criticized Clinton's comments in Ohio that she would "put a whole lot...

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials refuse to answer two questions surrounding the August 2015 Gold King Mine spill that would help resolve issues uncovered by a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation. TheDCNF reported numerous contradictions in the EPA’s explanation of how and why it intentionally breached Colorado’s Gold King Mine, releasing 880,000 pounds of dangerous metals and mining waste into drinking water for three states and the Navajo Nation. Yet, the EPA refused to clarify those contradictions and instead disregarded TheDCNF’s findings and clung to its original story. First, the EPA ignored the conflicts of interest surrounding the “independent” investigation...

    Mitt Romney's reemergence this election cycle as a harsh critic of Donald Trump has been crippling for his favorability among Republican voters, a new poll shows. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, is seen as favorable by just 28 percent of Republican primary voters, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday. A startling 62 percent of Republican primary voters view him unfavorably, the poll found, and 10 percent said they were not sure. That net favorability of minus-34 percentage points is a dramatic drop from polling conducted prior to 2016. In January 2015, for example, Romney was seen...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The governor signed a bill Monday that makes Utah the first state to require doctors to give anesthesia to women having an abortion at 20 weeks of pregnancy or later. The bill signed by Republican Gov. Gary Herbert is based on the disputed premise that a fetus can feel pain at that point. "The governor is adamantly pro-life. He believes in not only erring on the side of life, but also minimizing any pain that may be caused to an unborn child," Herbert spokesman Jon Cox said. Many doctors in Utah and across the country...

The results began coming in relatively early and Bernie’s streak in caucus states only expanded. Sanders...

The reason it was such a big night for Sanders was that he dominated in Washington state, beating Clinton by more than 40 points. Washington has a big delegate total, so splitting up the delegates gave Sanders a...

"Hillary Clinton's repeated stumbles at this stage of the race are another reminder of her deeply flawed candidacy.

"Donald Trump has had several foreign wives; it turns out there really are jobs Americans won't do," said the 2012 Republican presidential nominee.

    Robert Jeffress, pastor of the 12,000 member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, is rebuking talk radio host Glenn Beck for his recent criticism of evangelical Christians who live in the South and are not supporting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% ’s campaign to secure the Republican Presidential nomination. “All throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” Beck said at a rally in Utah on Monday. “Beck’s wacko comment speaks for itself,” Jeffress tells Breitbart News. “However, by using the phrase ‘their God’ to refer to the God we evangelical Christians worship, Beck is finally admitting...

    Tuesday night is supposed to be Utah Republicans' moment in the national spotlight -- and not just because the state could hand Donald Trump a rare crushing defeat. The Utah Republican Party is hosting what is could be the nation's largest online election ever.* In addition to hosting a statewide caucus, the party set up an online voting system for any registered voter outside or inside the state. "I think it's going to be great," Utah GOP Chairman James Evans said at the time of the switch. Campaign 2016 Email Updates Get the best analysis of the presidential race. Sign...

    Just got back from my caucus... My head is still spinning. Check in was slow but reasonably controlled. Super-long lines. I've never seen turnout like this. Got my credentials, but no presidential ballot. They said those would be delivered to our caucus room. Got to my caucus room. I counted about 120 people there (no idea how many were actually registered and credentialed). We elected Precinct Officers, State Delegates, and County Delegates - the typical incompetence and ignorance of the rules you'd expect to see from volunteers, but all went somewhat smooth. ...Then came the Presidential Ballot. Someone shows up...

    The Utah Republican Party is hosting what is could be the nation's largest online election ever. In addition to hosting a statewide caucus, the party set up an online voting system for any registered voter outside or inside the state. Unfortunately, Utah's digital election night doesn't seem to be going as smoothly as Utah Republicans had hoped. While Utah Republicans headed to their caucus in person on Tuesday evening, anyone who had registered online by March 17 can log on to utah.gop to vote between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. local time and cast their vote. But the Deseret News...

    An anti-Donald-Trump super-PAC is running ads in conservative Utah to try to convince Mormons not to vote for Trump — by slut-shaming his wife, Melania. Vox News is reporting that Make America Awesome, founded by Republican strategist Liz Mair, is trying to increase turnout of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ahead of the Utah primary on Tuesday. The super-PAC is trying to convince Mormons to vote for Ted Cruz rather than Donald Trump, who is not a favorite of GOP voters in the state (it’s not just Mitt Romney.) The super-PAC is running three ads...

    Republicans in Arizona gave billionaire Donald Trump yet another primary win Tuesday, as Ted Cruz hoped the caucuses in neighboring Utah would give him a victory later in the evening. Hillary Clinton won the Democratic race in Arizona. Neither state’s outcome was likely to settle the GOP’s intra-party fight for the presidential nomination. Democrats, too, clashed in Utah, as well as in Idaho. The day offered a relatively small pot of delegates, yet neither party could afford to blow off the states before the campaign shifted into a spring lull.

    Donald Trump supporter Easton Brady, 19, of Provo, Utah, said he's proof that not all millennials are behind Bernie Sanders. He acknowledged Trump doesn't play as well in Utah as other parts of the country, despite the state's solidly conservative bent. That's partly because people are loyal to Republican establishment leaders like Mitt Romney, who's well-loved in the state, Brady said. A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Brady was a big Romney supporter — until the former presidential candidate made a speech sharply critical of Trump. Now he wants to tear up his Romney T-shirts....

Both the state party offices and the help line set up by Smartmatic, the Florida-based company handling the online voting for the GOP, were deluged with calls from Utahns having problems casting their vote.

    Lee Davidson wrote the following article in the Salt Lake Tribune about Republican candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% ’s rallies today in Utah: Cruz also basked in the praise of two big-name Mormons: former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and conservative talk show host Glenn Beck. […] Beck, a Mormon and conservative radio talk show host, said he always vows to be the worst enemy of politicians who do not keep promises. “I don’t have any friends in Washington except these two,” he said about Cruz and Lee. He added they are the first politicians he has even endorsed....
