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.”

2020 Election

Virginia was the bellwether of 2017’s big blue wave — but could it happen again?

Published

on

In November 2017, powered by a surge of grassroots activism one year after Donald Trump’s election, Democrats wiped out a Republican supermajority in the Virginia House of Delegates, and came within one disputed ballot and a random drawing of sharing power in a 50-50 chamber — an early harbinger of the 2018 blue wave. Now they’re back to finish the job, aiming to recapture control of both legislative chambers for the first time in 26 years and set the tone for the 2020 election.

Swing Left, a key player in flipping the House of Representatives last year, has targeted 15 races in the House of Delegates and five in the State Senate. Their main focus is people power, but they’ve also raised more than $550,000 in grassroots donations as of Sept. 11. Just two seats are needed to flip each chamber, and a court-ordered redistricting has made flipping the House much more doable.

‘Did Obama know?’ Rudy Giuliani flings wild new accusations against Biden in overnight tweet rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani hurled accusations of Ukraine corruption at Joe Biden and his son in a series of middle-of-the-night tweets.

The president admitted Sunday to speaking to Ukraine's president about an investigation of Hunter Biden's business dealings with a natural gas company in the country, after a series of reports revealed his efforts to pressure that government to come up with dirt on the former vice president.

Early Monday morning, Giuliani accused Kiev of laundering $3 million to Hunter Biden and suggested the Obama administration was aware but did nothing, although the former New York City mayor offered no supporting evidence of those allegations.

Chronically underpaid EMTs are being assaulted at record rates

Published

on

If Upton Sinclair were to write the modern equivalent to “The Jungle,” he might make the setting the metaphorical meat grinder of today’s emergency medical services industry.

Across the nation, emergency medical service professionals, the front-line workforce upon which so much of a patient outcome rests, are grossly underpaid for brutal work schedules that put them at risk of both serious physical injury and burnout.

The cherry on the top of this abuse sundae is that they are 14 times more likely to be violently assaulted on the job than a firefighter.
