Palin speaks to a Trump rally in Tampa, Florida.
…and what we don’t have time for is all that petty punk-ass little thuggery stuff that’s been going on with those quote-unquote protesters who are doing nothing but wasting your time and trying to take away your first amendment rights, your rights to assemble peacefully. And the media being on the thugs’ side — what the heck are you guys thinking, media? It doesn’t make sense! Well, you all get it. I think the media and too many other candidates are underestimating the wisdom of the people. You’re smart, energized. optimistic, positive and that’s why you’re here today and I thank you for spending your time here today, because it is time, we have all recognized the majority of americans have recognized Republicans, Independents, good old blue dog Reagan Democrats out there — we have all recognized, we need a revolution. It is time to get rid of the status quo. The status quo has to go, right? We have needed a revolution, and we found our revolutionary. Donald Trump is that revolutionary!
Palin defends Trump against Romney on Facebook:
The “machine’s” deception and nonsensical attack on Trump isn’t really an attack on the candidate, it’s an attack on conscientious, hardworking, patriotic Americans who know we need a revolution to stop the complicit politicians who are fundamentally transforming America. We found the revolutionary…Donald Trump is the shock the Permanent Political Class needs to wake them up… to destroy their selfish cabal… to respect the will of the people… to make America safe and solvent… to make America great again. Don’t take the bait, Mr. Trump. It’s not about you. It’s about us. And we’ve got your back.
Palin posts to Facebook to respond to Beck’s criticisms of Trump and herself.
Ted Cruz’s star spokesman and campaign partner, Glenn Beck, promises he will support a socialist vs. the pro-life, pro-2nd amendment, pro-growth, pro-American GOP front runner… what’s conservative about that?..Beck will go ballistic after reading this post and will ramp up his unjustified attacks against Donald Trump, me, my faith, and you – for acknowledging all this I’ve outlined, in his own words… what’s smart about that?
Palin responds to the accusation that she was bought off by Trump for her endorsement:
Why would a good conservative guy like Steve King, from the heartland of America, want to say something that he knows isn’t true?
Maybe he’s forgotten some of his heart in the heartland. He got a touch of that Potomac fever there in DC. Maybe he’s been out in a cornfield too long huffing ethanol or something.
Speaking to MSNBC’s Jansing, Congressman King says about Trump:
He has a massive amount of assets and resources that he can deploy when it comes time to convince someone. And that has to affect the way people think. Not only the plus-ups of the promotion, the limelight, all the resources that are there…When I see where Sarah Palin has been on policies and issues, I’m confident that she’s much more comfortable with Ted Cruz’s issues than she is with Donald Trump’s.
After sharing the stage with her at an anti-Iran nuclear rally in Washington, D.C, Glenn Beck says:
I’m going to say it. I don’t care what Sarah Palin says any more. Sarah Palin has become a clown. I’m embarrassed that I was once for Sarah Palin. Honestly, I’m embarrassed… I don’t know who she is any more, I don’t know what she stands for. I saw a clip of her talking to Donald Trump. What the hell is that? I don’t even know who she is any more.
Plain talks to Tapper on CNN’s State of The Union about Alaska, Trump, and being the parent of a Down’s Syndrome child. Referring to Trump’s interview with Hugh Hewitt:
I think I’d rather have a president who is tough and puts America first than can win a game of Trivial Pursuit. But I don’t think the public gives a flying flip if somebody knows who, today, is a specific leader of a specific region or a religion or anything.
She also says she’d be interested in the position of Energy Secretary
I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby: oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind’s use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations…I’d get rid of (the Energy Department). And I’d let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be … really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.
Palin interviews Trump on One America News. The talk about economics, veterans, and Trump’s confontation with Jorge Ramos:
Palin: You schooled that radical activist. And that was the right thing to do.
Trump: He was totally out of line. He was screaming and ranting and raving. And I said ‘Who is this guy?’ I’m suing Univision actually for $500 million dollars. His daughter works for Hillary Clinton and he was trying to put on a show. But actually he was hurting the rest [of the reporters in attendance].
Palin criticizes what she sees as the double standard in media treatment of the Duggar case, compared to that of Dunham.
HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE’S SEXUAL ‘EXPERIMENTS’ AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION? YOU PEDOPHILE, YOU. I’m not defending the Duggar boy’s obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago. The main victim in any story like this isn’t the perpetrator, it’s the innocent ones so harmfully affected. I’m not an apologist for any sexual predator, but I’m sickened that the media gives their chosen ones a pass for any behavior as long as they share their leftwing politics. Case in point, they suggest Lena Dunham’s sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she’s rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family.
Palin shares her thoughts on Facebook about daughter Bristol Palin’s engagement
Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota! We’re honored to welcome Dakota into our family. He’s an American hero and patriot whose service to our country – like all his fellow Medal of Honor recipients – has been above and beyond the call of duty; but even more important is he’s a good and kind man who loves Bristol and Tripp, and is loved by them. They met last year when he was in Alaska to film an episode of “Amazing America,” and even then it was noticed that just as we like to describe Bristol as “an old soul” wise beyond her years, the same also applies to Dakota
Palin defends her family on Facebook nearly a week after reports claimed they were involved in a fistfight at an Alaska birthday party that police say involved around 20 people.
I love my Bristol! My straight-shooter is one of the strongest young women you’ll ever meet. I have to say this as a proud mama: right up there with their work ethic and heart for those less fortunate, my kids’ defense of family makes my heart soar!
Palin and her family are involved in a public fight at an annual Iron Dog snowmobile race in Anchorage, Alaska. More than 20 people are involved in the fight but charges are not pressed. Alaskan political blogger Amanda Coyne:
There’s some sort of unofficial birthday/Iron Dog-type/snowmachine party in Anchorage. A nice, mellow party, until the Palins show up. There’s beer, of course, and maybe other things. Which is all fine, but just about the time when some people might have had one too many, Track Palin stumbles out of a stretch Hummer, and immediately spots an ex-boyfriend of Willow’s. Track isn’t happy with this guy, the story goes. There’s words, and more.
Palin accepts the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after being nominated by the retailer, Arctic Cat. She nominates former senator and secretary of state Hillary Clinton, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), and her husband, Todd Palin.
I’m too old for this. C’mon, at this stage of my life, in my career, aren’t I a little too prim and proper for all that ice bucket water dump thing?
Palin calls for the impeachment of President Obama for inaction over the immigration crisis, claiming he is intentionally allowing immigrants in the United States.
(Obama’s) unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas.’…It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.
The band releases, Who Says You Can’t Go Home, from the album, Have A Nice Day. Bon Jovi is not pleased when Palin uses the song at some of her campaign stops in middle America.
We wrote this song as a thank you to those who have supported us over the past 25 years. The song has since become a banner for our home state of New Jersey and the de facto theme song for our partnerships around the country to build homes and rebuild communities. Although we have not asked, we do not approve of their use of Home.
