Dr. Ben Carson, in response to the first of many videos aiming to reveal Planned Parenthood’s sale of fetal tissue, told Fox’s Megyn Kelly a few weeks ago that “there’s nothing that can’t be done without fetal tissue.” Now, Dr. Carson is under fire for research that he performed in 1992 on the tissue of two aborted fetuses, one terminated after only 9 weeks in the womb and the other after 17 weeks. Medical research using fetal tissue harvested from abortions and funding for the nationwide abortion provider Planned Parenthood have recently become polarizing issues in the 2016 Republican primary, amidst a
Prolific political contributor Foster Friess will once again throw his support behind Rick Santorum’s bid for the Republican Presidential Nomination. When asked by Fox Business Network’s Cheryl Casone why he continues to support a candidate whose poll numbers currently stand near 2 percent, Friess replied with three important reasons that he believes make Santorum the best candidate for the GOP’s 2016 nomination: 1) Santorum’s understanding of the global jihad movement: “Rick Santorum is probably the only one of the 17 candidates on those stages on the cover of an ISIS magazine calling him ‘the enemy.’ The number one issue facing
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s campaign team in South Carolina is no longer being paid by his presidential campaign, according to a recent report by National Journal. Perry, whose performance in this past week’s “happy hour” debate failed to excite prospective voters, raised only $1.1 million between April and June this year and seems to be feeling the effects of faltering contributions. As a source close to the Perry campaign told CBS News, “Jeff Miller, Perry’s national campaign manager, told campaign staff on Friday that the only expenses moving forward would be for travel.” Many Perry supporters remain hopeful, however.
In a recent appearance on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” Carly Fiorina commented on the misuse of terminology that currently clouds the conflict over social issues that exists between conservatives and liberals: DICKERSON: Let me ask you about something you said in your closing statement. You said that the Republican Party needed to nominate somebody who cannot stumble before he even gets into the ring. A lot of people assumed you were talking about Jeb Bush. Were you? FIORINA: You know, I think it’s very frustrating to me and other conservatives when we have people on our side who play
This past Saturday, Senator Marco Rubio spoke at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa, where he began by explaining how he believes the United States should be handling the issue of immigration. With regards to border security, E-Verify, and those who overstay their work visas, Rubio’s comments largely reflect APIA’s 5-Point Conservative Immigration Plan: There are two steps. The first is we have to secure our borders. And our border is not just our border with Mexico. We also have to secure our airports and seaports. 40% of people in this country illegally, come legally. We have no idea who they are,
This past Saturday, at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa, Texas Senator Ted Cruz firmly spoke out against Planned Parenthood, over recent allegations that the organization profits from the sale of tissue taken from aborted fetuses: The video that surfaced in the past week…was gruesome and disgusting, and every American should watch that video and simply say: ‘Are those my values?’ Cruz continued: The U.S. Department of Justice should open an investigation and prosecute Planned Parenthood. Local prosecutors should investigate Planned Parenthood affiliates in their jurisdictions, and Congress should hold hearings, and we should cut off every penny of taxpayer
Byron York, in an interview with Republican Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum at this past weekend’s Western Conservative Summit, asked, “In your view, should immigration be kept at its present level, increased, or decreased?” Santorum, citing an immigration rate of “1,050,000” per year, the “highest it has ever been in our country’s history,” vehemently denounced the visa lottery and chain immigration. Santorum went on to assert “that we have an increasing supply of workers coming from overseas, and yet we do not have an expanding market of unskilled jobs to be able to bridge the gap.” Santorum believes that we ought
