Rick Santorum Calls Out Big GOP Donors for “Truce Strategy”

Rush Limbaugh is not the only one finally noticing what American Principles in Action pointed out a year ago: a donor driven truce strategy on social issues is a pathway to political defeat. Rick Santorum targeted the Republican donor class Monday, blaming them for a failed “truce strategy” that has muzzled Republican candidates on abortion, even when Democrats are at a clear disadvantage: “The establishment has decided we shouldn’t be talking about these issues,” Santorum said. “We should just simply play defense.” He asked the room of about 40 if anyone knew when Barack Obama was a state senator in

Rick Santorum Schools MSNBC on Judicial Tyranny (VIDEO)

Rick Santorum went on Chris Matthews’ show on MSNBC after the first debate on Wednesday, where they sparred about the Supreme Court in a feisty exchange: CHRIS MATTHEWS: Senator, we have lived our lives with landmark decisions by the Supreme Court, whether it’s Brown — you know, vs. Board of Education which said we’re no longer separate but equal in public schools. We knocked out – the court knocked out prayer in public school in a prayer case. They basically reviewed the civil rights bill of ’64 and found it constitutional. We had Roe v. Wade in ’73. You’ve had — they’ve all been Supreme Court

Santorum and Jindal Defend Kim Davis

In the 6 p.m. debate, Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal jumped to defend Kim Davis. George Pataki and Lindsey Graham? Not so much: JAKE TAPPER: Before we took the break, you were all chomping at the bit to talk about Kim Davis, that Kentucky clerk. Governor Pataki said he would have fired Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses. Senator Santorum, do you agree with Governor Pataki? RICK SANTORUM: 16 years ago, this country was tremendously inspired by a young woman who faced a gunman in Columbine and was challenged about her faith and

CNN Host Tries to Take Down Santorum on Supreme Court (FAIL!)

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota badgered Rick Santorum over Kim Davis, repeating the cliche that the Supreme Court sets “the law of the land.” Santorum, sounding exasperated, didn’t back down. I have a question for Ms. Camerota: Did she badger Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and countless liberal attorneys general and governors across the country when they were ignoring and attacking natural marriage laws at the state and federal level? Or does the media only selectively apply their “rule of law” rhetoric? Transcript via CNN.com: ALISYN CAMEROTA: Well, that was Kentucky clerk, Kim Davis, back at work and declaring moment ago that she

Santorum: Accommodation Should Have Been Made for Kim Davis

Rick Santorum appeared on Fox News yesterday, where he discussed the ongoing controversy surrounding Kentucky clerk Kim Davis: GRETA VAN SUSTEREN: So, should she have gone to jail? RICK SANTORUM: No. You had the mayor of San Francisco violating the law several years ago issuing marriage certificates; he didn’t go to jail. You’ve had county clerks refusing to issue gun permits; they don’t go to jail. Why — VAN SUSTEREN: Okay, so where do we draw the line? Tonight if I drive home and if I speed, should I have to pay a speeding ticket? I mean, at what point

Santorum Urges Passing FADA to Protect Heroes (Like Kim Davis)

We’ve talked a lot about the First Amendment Defense Act here at The Pulse. FADA would protect those who believe in natural marriage between one man and one woman from government discrimination, and as we’re seeing in far too many cases across the country, we really need that. Rick Santorum was on Fox News on Friday, where he offered a solution to the whole Kim Davis saga — pass the First Amendment Defense Act, and make the Left live and let live when it comes to same-sex marriage (though it’s becoming increasingly clear that they want conformity, not harmony). In

These GOP Candidates Stood Tall for Kim Davis

The controversy surrounding Rowan County, Ky., clerk Kim Davis for her religious objections to same-sex marriage was the big story on the campaign trail Thursday, especially after news broke early in the day that she was thrown in jail. While some candidates tried to dodge the issue, here are the candidates who decided to stand with Davis: Mike Huckabee Early in the morning, Mike Huckabee appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and gave an extremely well thought out, constitutionally-based response to the whole saga. After news broke that Davis had been thrown in jail, Huckabee took to Twitter  announcing the “criminalization of

GOP Candidates Fire Back at Clinton for “Terrorists” Comment

When Hillary Clinton compared Republican presidential candidates to “terrorists” for their pro-life views, five candidates were not going to take it lying down. Mike Huckabee’s was the strongest. Huckabee turned the tables and said it’s actually Planned Parenthood that acts like terrorists, given the way they dismember and slaughter unborn babies: TUCKER CARLSON: So what do you make of Hillary Clinton’s comments, especially in light of her continued support of Planned Parenthood? MIKE HUCKABEE: It’s hard for me to even begin to understand what Hillary was thinking, although this was scripted. This was not an off-the-cuff remark that she just accidentally
