Sarah Palin: Media waged ‘war on women’ by laughing at my family’s drunken brawl

Published

on

Taking to her favorite method of communicating with the public, Sarah Palin used Facebook to address the drunken brawl her family was involved in after they crashed an acquaintance’s September birthday party.

After audio tape of interviews with participants in the multiple fights were released earlier this week, daughter Bristol Palin complained on her blog that she was being mocked by the media and gave her own version of the evening’s events, that were decidedly at odds with all other witness testimony provided to police.

Calling it an “attack on conservative women,” Bristol later complained after CNN’s Carol Costello called a portion of the audio, “..  quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway.”

Facing criticism after conservative bloggers swarmed to Bristol’s defense — saying she was the victim of assault after she allegedly punched the homeowner repeatedly before he shoved her to the ground and then dragged her by her leg off of his property —  Costello later apologized.

In her Facebook post, Sarah Palin attacked the media over their coverage, saying they have no “shame.”

Saying what happened the night of the fight was “ humiliating and frightening,” Palin explained that her family had remained silent assuming the truth would come out.

“My kids aren’t proud of what happened, nor are they seeking sympathy by playing the victim card – that’s why they haven’t commented on this for all these weeks,’ she wrote. “Instead, they had to have faith that the truth would come out, despite those who did the cold-cocking actually using social media to brag, “’bout to get famous!” Screen shots of tweets captured their bold intentions, and they’ve certainly enjoyed the publicity.”

Palin equated media reporting of the event and playing the audio with the “war on women,”  writing, “Looking at the reports, it strikes me as bitterly ironic that the same people who tell us there is a “war on women” have no problem laughing at the recording of my daughter crying as she tells police about being assaulted by a man. I’d like to say shame on the media and those on the left laughing at her or at any young woman in a similar situation, but I no longer think they have any shame.

Palin did not address the question of why her daughter, described by police as “angry and intoxicated,” was drunk and crashing a late night party with her 5-year-old in tow.

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

Israel’s Netanyahu just christened a building named after Trump — that doesn’t even exist

Published

on

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent his Father’s Day dedicating a new Trump Tower-type building that hasn't been built in a town that doesn't exist.

Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.

Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.
