Merry Christmas, Defense Contractors!
Who says Democrats and Republicans can’t get along? This week president Obama signed a massive one-stop bill (a.k.a “Cromnibus”) that will keep the government funded until the end of the fiscal year. Among other things, the bill appropriates $1.1 trillion in funding—including over $550 billion for the Department of Defense. The Daily Beast

Google Sues Mississippi Over State's Efforts to Restrict Searches
Google Inc. sued Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood on Friday, seeking to prevent him from enforcing a wide-ranging subpoena that has become entangled in a dispute between Google and Hollywood. Filed in U.S. District Court for Southern Mississippi, the lawsuit claims that for 18 months, Mr. Hood has threatened to prosecute Google if the company doesn’t block certain content on its websites. Google says that when it didn't agree to Mr. Hood’s demands, the attorney general filed “an enormously burdensome subpoena” in late October seeking information about Internet activity related to illegal drugs, human trafficking and copyrighted content, among other subjects.

Obama Wants Long-Term Infrastructure Plan, Not Keystone
If there were any lingering doubt about whether President Obama might support the $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline project, he convincingly dispelled it at his Friday year-end White House news conference. He dismissed the project as “not even a nominal benefit” to the U.S economy or consumers. The Fiscal Times

Labor's big comeback
After a brutal battering in the midterms, organized labor will conclude 2014 with the wind at its back — thanks to two out-of-the-way corners of the Obama administration whose default posture in recent memory has been paralysis. The agencies in question are the National Labor Relations Board and the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division. Both spent the past decade largely crippled by congressional obstruction, first from Democratic majorities and then from Republican ones. Now freed from those obstacles — at least for the moment — and operating under Democratic leadership impatient to make up for lost time, these agencies are promoting workers’ and unions’ rights more aggressively than Washington has witnessed in a generation. The changes seem part of a more general shift for the Obama administration — extending diplomatic recognition to Cuba being another — toward more progressive policies as it heads into its final two years.

Tom Coburn: President Obama’s a ‘neat man’
Retiring Sen. Tom Coburn often gave Barack Obama fits on Capitol Hill, but he’s waxing sentimental about his personal friendship with the president on his way out the door. “I just love him as a man. I think he’s a neat man. You don’t have to be the same to be friends. Matter of fact, the interesting friendships are the ones that are divergent,” Coburn said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday. Politico

Dixie rising: How the Deep South is trying to game the GOP primary.
The Deep South has elected Republicans to every top office in the region. Now it wants to be sure that clout extends to the choice of the GOP’s 2016 presidential nominee. Officials in five Southern states — Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas — are coordinating to hold their primary on March 1, 2016. Texas and Florida are considering also holding a primary the same day but may wait until later in the month. Either way, March 1 would be a Southern Super Tuesday, voting en masse on the heels of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. Politico

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe.
