    Investment manager and GOP megadonor Foster Friess told CNBC's Squawk Box on Friday that President Trump's decision to blame both white nationalist groups and their counter-protesters for last weekend's violence in Charlottesville was correct and the resulting uproar was "politically inspired." The key quote: "I love Donald Trump. He's become a victim. And he's being bullied. And that's why Americans are flocking to him, because they hate [seeing] people…bullied." Friess' influence: A supporter of conservative Christian political causes, he helped finance Rick Santorum's presidential run in 2012. He's been active in media as well, investing millions into The Daily Caller.
  • “Default” is a bunch of hooey

    It’s impossible to default on the debt——years down the road, maybe Average monthly interest costs are $18 billion….. we take in on average $225 billion. By law, the president must pay interest first before anything else. In addition to interest we must roll over the $550 billion of maturing debt each month. Newly issued bonds replace maturing bonds with no net change in total debt outstanding. If the Chinese and other investors won’t purchase them, Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke will just buy them for the Fed’s account. When confronted with money problems, adults make decisions and set priorities. We pay...

    When Rick Santorum ended his presidential bid on Tuesday, he spoke about the illness of his three-year-old daughter, Bella, and expressed a desire to spend more time with her as a parent. But on Thursday, the former Pennsylvania senator suggested the decision largely came down instead to a simple reality: He was out of cold, hard cash. After losing Wisconsin's April 3 primary to rival Mitt Romney by seven points - a contest, Santorum said, that his campaign viewed as necessary to win in order to do well in his home state of Pennsylvania - his fundraising dried up. "For...

    Foster Friess, the retired investor who spent nearly $1.7 million boosting Rick Santorum’s presidential run, is ready to help Mitt Romney. “I’m obviously going to be of help in whatever way I can,” Friess told POLITICO Tuesday afternoon, hours after Santorum suspended his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination, cementing Romney’s status as the party’s presumptive nominee. Friess, who was in Washington to accept an award from the Horatio Alger Association, said he had yet to discuss his planned shift in allegiance with Romney’s campaign campaign or the Washington-based super PAC supporting it.

    An Open Letter to Rick Santorum: Dear Senator: As a strong, common-sense Conservative, I have a favor to ask of you. Could you please consider not answering, off the cuff, every question thrown at you? Would you please engage your brain before putting your mouth in gear? I’m beginning to see now, how, as an incumbent, you lost your Senate seat by 18 pecentage points to the brain-dead Bob Casey. Women vote Senator; and, they vote in large numbers. Now, please consider this common-sense observation from a Conservative male: Women have been in combat for years now. Women have used...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: This is Foster Friess, and he was on Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, her show at one o'clock eastern yesterday afternoon. FRIESS: Back in my days they used Bayer aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn't that costly. MITCHELL: Excuse me, I'm just trying to catch my breath from that, Mr. Friess, frankly. RUSH: Uh, excuse me, trying to catch my breath from that, Mr. Frieze, frankly. Folks, it is I guess factual now to say that our culture is obsessed with sex, and the conventional wisdom now is everybody, particularly...
  • Santorum: Not Responsible for Friess' "Bad Joke" (video)

    (CBS News) Updated at 10:39 a.m. ET Taking a page from rival Newt Gingrich, Republican presidential hopeful and newly minted front-runner Rick Santorum on Friday slammed the media for asking about a controversial comment one of his supporters made about contraception a day earlier. "My record stands for itself," Santorum said in an interview on "CBS This Morning" after being asked about Foster Friess' comment on MSNBC Thursday that women should hold a Bayer aspirin between their knees to use as contraception.

    The man fueling Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign is a Wyoming cowboy with a special interest in conservative cause who wears a tall, white hat and likes to call himself the “man atop the horse.” He’s also a billionaire. His name is Foster Friess, and he’s largely bankrolling the pro-Santorum super PAC behind the effort to make the former Pennsylvania senator the 2012 GOP nominee. In an interview with ABC News, the mutual fund manager says he will continue “to be supportive in helping raise funds for the Super PAC” called the “Red, White, and Blue Fund,” and he’s encouraged by...
