Sarah Palin’s son Track arrested on assault and weapons-related charges

Published

on

The elder son of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a woman and carrying a gun while intoxicated, police in the family’s Alaska hometown said on Tuesday.

The arrest came just hours before Palin, the politician-turned-reality TV star, endorsed Donald Trump, the reality television star-turned-politician, in his bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

Track Palin, 26, was arrested late on Monday night after authorities responded to a domestic disturbance call at a home in Wasilla, Alaska, police said in a statement.

“An investigation revealed Track Palin had committed a domestic violence assault on a female, interfered with her ability to report a crime of domestic violence and possessed a firearm while intoxicated,” the statement said.

Police provided no immediate further details.

Representatives for the Palin family could not immediately be reached for comment.

Sarah Palin shot to national prominence in 2008 during her first time as Alaska governor when U.S. Senator John McCain of Arizona picked her to be his vice presidential running mate in his failed general election campaign for the White House against the Democratic ticket of Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

She resigned as governor the following year but has remained in the public spotlight on the lecture circuit and as a conservative political commentator. She also has produced and starred in a series of staged television shows about her family set against the backdrop of Alaska’s rugged outdoors.

In 2014, the Palins made national headlines when, according to an Anchorage police report, a booze-fueled brawl erupted at an outdoor party late on Sept. 6 involving Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, their son Track and daughters Bristol and Willow.

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
