Track Palin’s ex files for full custody of 3-month-old son citing concern over their safety

Published

on

Track Palin’s ex-girlfriend filed for full custody of their three-month old son in Anchorage, Alaska last week, Radar Online reports.

Jordan Loewe is seeking primary custody of the former couple’s son, Charlie Mitchell Palin, citing “concern” over her and her child’s safety. She’s asking for visitation rights “completely” at her own discretion.

Palin was arrested on Jan. 18, 2016 on charges of fourth degree domestic assault, interfering with a domestic violence report and misconduct involving weapons.

Wasilla police charged Palin after Loewe said the son of former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin punched her in the face, and that a gun was involved in the incident. According to the affidavit, authorities found Loewe bruised and hiding under a bed.

“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 police said in a statement. His blood alcohol level was .189.

The first two charges were dropped after Palin plead guilty to misconduct involving weapons while under the influence and completed an alcohol related treatment program.

Track Palin’s mom, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin drew criticism after she indirectly blamed President Barack Obama for failing to support veterans like her son.

“I guess it’s kind of the elephant in the room because my own family going through what we’re going through today with my son, a combat vet … like so many others, they come back a bit different. They come back hardened,” Palin said at a rally where she endorsed then-candidate Donald Trump. “They come back wondering if there is that respect for what their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to the country.”

Palin later added it’s important veterans “have a commander-in-chief who will respect them.”

In a series of tweets, veteran Nate Bethea rejected Palin’s characterization, writing “my problems have nothing to do with whether or not Obama ‘respects’ me.”

“Track Palin has to deal with his own issues, don’t get me wrong,” Bethea write. “But there’s no explaining away personal responsibility. It still exists.”

Supreme Court decision on Trump’s taxes handed Democratic lawmakers a powerful new weapon: law professor

Published

on

According to a law professor writing for Politico, Donald Trump earned a small victory this past week when the Supreme Court did not allow Congress to have his tax returns that prosecutors in New York will receive, but it did set a precedent for more Congressional power over the president that can be used in further conflicts.

In her column for Politico, Kimberly Wehle of the University of Baltimore School of Law, wrote that "Congress emerged with more clarity about its oversight powers, and how to enforce them, than it had before the Supreme Court weighed in," in its 7/2 decision.

Trump campaign workers ducking wearing masks over fears of mockery: ‘You get made fun of’

Published

on

According to Politico, Trump campaign officials at the re-election headquarters in Arlington, Virginia are too embarrassed to follow the president's own CDC guidelines about wearing masks and practicing physical distancing — because the president himself has done so much to politicize the coronavirus pandemic.

"The campaign’s headquarters — located on the 14th floor of an Arlington, Va., office building that shares space with multiple businesses — is normally packed with dozens of staffers, often sitting in close proximity to conduct phone calls and other urgent campaign business, said three people with knowledge of its operations," wrote Dan Diamond. "But the office was shut down for its first deep cleaning in weeks after a senior campaign official tested positive for the virus. The decision to conduct the cleaning came after two months of flouting the Trump administration’s own public health guidance: There are no face coverings or temporary barriers between desks at headquarters, and leaders have limited efforts to implement social distancing."

According to WOAI, a patient in San Antonio, Texas in their 30s has died after going to a "COVID party" — a gathering of people who intentionally expose themselves to coronavirus to see for themselves whether the virus is real.

Per Methodist Healthcare Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jane Appleby, the patient's final words to the nurse were, "I think I made a mistake, I thought this was a hoax, but it’s not."

“It doesn’t discriminate and none of us are invincible,” warned Appleby. “I don’t want to be an alarmist and we’re just trying to share some real-world examples to help our community realize that this virus is very serious and can spread easily.”
