Don’t Look Now, But Monetary Policy Just Became a Top Issue in the GOP Primary

It’s greatly encouraging to see the GOP candidates focus more on one of the largest economic problems facing the United States: the Federal Reserve and monetary policy. On Tuesday night, we witnessed the GOP field address monetary reform as a key to economic fairness and growth in a bigger and more substantial way than ever before. Candidates centered their comments on the problems created by the Federal Reserve’s artificially low interest rates and how it has adversely affected equitable prosperity through rising prices and stagnant wages for working families. The Federal Reserve’s zero interest rate policy repeatedly came under fire at

Huckabee: Pro-Lifers Have Been Fighting Abortion Battle “the Wrong Way”

Addressing the National Religious Liberties Conference last week, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee discussed the need to overturn Roe v. Wade and suggested pro-lifers should approach the issue with a different strategy.  You can see Huckabee’s remarks below: MIKE HUCKABEE: For 42 years we’ve seen 60 million unborn children slain in their mother’s womb. I don’t know how in the world we honestly can pray ‘God bless America’ when we have acted like a savage uncivilized country in relation to unborn children. But once again, instead of us wringing our hands, and maybe pretending we’re gonna change the Constitution or overturn

Huckabee: Three Billionaires Refused Support Because of Abortion, Marriage Stances

Mike Huckabee got into a discussion with Breitbart Radio’s Stephen Bannon about the influence of the GOP donor class on the party’s candidates. He revealed that at least three billionaires seemed likely to throw their weight — and massive sums of cash — behind him, until Huckabee refused to shut up about his pro-life and pro-natural marriage stances (starts around 6:54): STEPHEN BANNON: The [donor class is] also quite uncomfortable with the moral issues like gay marriage and issues like the right to life. The donor class does not want to – they think that that is a bunch of

Two Major GOP Candidates to Miss the Next Debate

Fox Business just announced that only eight candidates will make it onto the main stage for Tuesday’s debate. The main stage will feature: Trump, Carson, Rubio, Cruz, Bush, Fiorina, Paul, and Kasich. Two notable exceptions from the main stage are New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.

Marjorie’s Media Pick of the Week: Huckabee Takes on Whoopi Goldberg on Abortion

Former Governor and current presidential candidate Mike Huckabee took on Whoopi Goldberg on abortion during his interview on “The View” this week. When Goldberg criticized his pro-life position saying, “It’s not your body, it’s not your life,” Huckabee corrected her, clarifying that there are two separate lives involved in a pregnancy. The audience broke into applause when he went on offense, defending the lives of both the child and mother: WHOOPI GOLDBERG: So Governor Mike, I assume that in talking about all these medical and health benefits, that you are taking into consideration, because I looked over some of your

Campaign 2016 by the Numbers: Carson, Cruz Shock Everyone

Third quarter fundraising reports are in, and we have the numbers for you. As we said last week when these fundraising numbers first started trickling in, these numbers do matter — fundraising allows candidates to buy air time, hire staff, and get people to the polls. It’s impossible to win without money. Here’s the GOP primary as it stands by the numbers: Ben Carson 3rd Quarter: $20.8 million raised (1st) Cash on hand: $11.2 million (2nd) RealClearPolitics (RCP) Polling Average: 19.0% (2nd) Carson should be very satisfied with his position right now. He’s raising a lot of money, mostly from small-dollar donors, and he’s

The Top Five Grossest Things Dan Savage Has Said

Warning: The following includes vulgar language and explicit content which most reasonable people would find appalling (though apparently not Dan Savage). The liberal media is relentlessly mocking Huckabee’s calls to boycott Frito-Lay for their “Rainbow Doritos” alliance with the It Gets Better project—created by self-proclaimed “sexpert” Dan Savage.  He says that his message boils down to “Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you.” Based on the things he’s actually said, it is doubtful he would actually like to live by this teaching. With that said, here are five times that Dan Savage failed at being even a
