Bristol Palin Just Broke Her Silence; Here’s Why She’s Asking For Your Prayers

Bristol Palin has spoken out publicly for the first time since her marriage to Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer was called off last week, describing it as a “painful time” for her.

Writing on her blog Tuesday, Palin felt it was time to address “the elephant-in-the-room.”  

“I guess you have seen by now that the wedding — that was supposed to happen last weekend — was called off,” she wrote. “I’m sure you’ve seen this has been all over the media, but this is a painful time for family and friends and I would just really appreciate your prayers.”  

I know God’s plan is greater than anything else, and Tripp and I are in Alaska beginning to rebuild our lives under much different circumstances than we anticipated. Thank you for all of your love and support.  

Bristol received a fair amount of support on Twitter.  

The Palins and the Meyers still got together over Memorial Day weekend at the Meyers’ home in Kentucky. Bristol’s mother, former Gov. Sarah Palin, was seen raising her finger to the would-be groom. Bristol did not go to Kentucky, instead remaining in Alaska with her friend, Marina Lupas.

Here’s What Happened At What Was Supposed To Be Bristol Palin’s Wedding Reception

Although Sarah Palin announced last week that her family would still be joining Dakota Meyer’s family in Kentucky despite the cancelled wedding between the Medal of Honor recipient and her daughter, Bristol, the younger Palin was nowhere to be found in the Bluegrass State.

The former Alaska governor made the announcement about the gathering on her Facebook page last Monday. “They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held,” Palin wrote. “Many friends and family still look forward to getting together that day in Kentucky anyway – and the Palins and Meyers are happily looking forward to still being at ‘the old Kentucky home’ on May 23 to celebrate life, in general!”

The Daily Mail reported Bristol was not at the Kentucky gathering, but instead in Alaska enjoying a “weekend getaway” with her friend Marina Lupas, as she pointed out on her Instagram page.

Lupas is the owner of Exotix LLC which, according to its website, provides “models for music video, photo shoots, and promotional work.” She is also working on a calendar for 2016 entitled “Exotic Russian.”

Meanwhile at the Kentucky gathering, several Twitter users noticed that Palin was raising her finger to the Medal of Honor recipient. Many expressed their disapproval for the gesture:

See What This News Site Just Did To Tie Sarah Palin To Texas Biker Shootout

As investigators continue to sort out the details of a deadly shooting in Waco, Texas, at least one major news outlet has already discovered a way to weave a Sarah Palin-themed narrative into its coverage of the tragic event.

A Washington Post article published this week included a prominently-placed Twitter post bearing an image that seemed to link the former Alaska governor to the Texas shootout. The Washington Examiner explains the photo of Palin was apparently taken during a Rolling Thunder, a motorcycle event honoring veterans.

Capture

Janell Ross’ article, though completely devoid of any evidence linking Palin to the shootings, nonetheless begins with the above image posted above even the first sentence. The apparent effort to implicitly connect the outspoken conservative to the crime quickly became fodder for critics of the leftist mainstream press.

“What does Sarah Palin and a group of veterans have to do with biker thugs in Waco?” one reader asked in response to the Post’s article.

“The writer obviously has personal issues on display here,” another replied.

Criticism of the article – which offered a sparsely sourced claim that white crime victims are treated differently than blacks – as a work of journalism was similarly harsh.

“I managed to make it all the way through this article,” one reader wrote, “and yet, I have no idea what point the author was trying to make…”

Another individual chimed in: “The point was to place blame on law abiding white gun owners for gang violence. The author failed miserably.”

Bristol Palin Just Cleared Up Rumors Surrounding Sarah’s Surprising Announcement

Even though Bristol Palin and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer will not be getting married later this month, the couple said they and their families will still be getting together and dismissed a rumor that has been circulating since the wedding was called off.

Bristol’s mother, former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska (R), announced on her Facebook page Monday that the couple’s wedding in Kentucky would not be taking place.

“Bristol and Dakota couldn’t be more thankful for the love and support of family and friends over the past months while preparing for their wedding,” the elder Palin wrote. “They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held.”

On Tuesday, she said that the two families would still be getting together:

They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held.

Many friends and family still look forward to getting together that day in Kentucky anyway – and the Palins and Meyers are happily looking forward to still being at “the old Kentucky home” on May 23 to celebrate life, in general!

Family members and close friends know they are welcome to share a great bar-b-que on the farm that day.

There has been some speculation that Meyer never informed Bristol about some of his past relationships. But on her mother’s Facebook page, Bristol brushed aside those concerns.

“Regarding salacious headlines in recent days about ‘secret wives’, Dakota and I discussed our past relationships prior to our engagement. Dakota was legally divorced years ago, as any good reporter could and should have disclosed to readers,” Bristol wrote.

As usual, false stories and dramatically written headlines begging controversy should be disregarded, and we have faith that our privacy will be respected at this time by those with decency. Thank you! – Bristol

Meyer also took to his Facebook page Monday, stressing that he is looking forward to spending time with his fiance and her family:

Many friends and family still look forward to getting together that day in Kentucky anyway – and we are happily looking forward to still being at “the old Kentucky home” on May 23to celebrate life, in general! Family members and close friends know they are welcome to share a great bar-b-que on the farm that day!

The Shocking Announcement Sarah Palin Just Made Is Sure To Upset Her Millions Of Fans

What was supposed to be a celebration of marriage for the Palin family has now apparently become just a reunion of family and friends. In a shocking message just posted to social media, Sarah Palin tells her 4.4 million Facebook friends that the scheduled wedding of her daughter Bristol to Afghanistan War hero and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer will not take place on May 23rd.

Bristol and Dakota couldn’t be more thankful for the love and support of family and friends over the past months while preparing for their wedding. They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held.

The former Alaska governor adds that family and friends are still welcome to gather at Meyer’s “old Kentucky home” for fellowship and bar-b-que. But the planned union of Bristol Palin and the highly decorated former Marine will not be part of the festivities. Apparently, the recent brouhaha over Meyer’s previous marriage has taken a toll on the couple’s relationship.

The website Inquisitr joined in the melee of frantic reporting over the last few days, suggesting that Dakota Meyer had never been legally divorced from a woman he supposedly married some seven years ago.

Bristol Palin’s fiance, Dakota Meyer, is lying about his past according to a friend of Cassandra Wain, a woman that Meyer allegedly married back in May of 2008. Based upon these recent allegations, some rumors are flying around that Bristol Palin’s wedding date may have been cancelled since she apparently has been missing a wedding ring.

While not saying that the wedding between Meyer and her daughter is actually cancelled, Sarah Palin does make it clear in her Facebook message that the long-anticipated May 23rd ceremony will not be held. The one-time GOP vice presidential candidate also offers a message from Bristol regarding the supposed divorce complications surrounding her fiancé — a message “clearing up rumors that tabloids salivate over.”

Regarding salacious headlines in recent days about “secret wives”, Dakota and I discussed our past relationships prior to our engagement. Dakota was legally divorced years ago, as any good reporter could and should have disclosed to readers. As usual, false stories and dramatically written headlines begging controversy should be disregarded, and we have faith that our privacy will be respected at this time by those with decency. Thank you! – Bristol

Along with her startling announcement that the Bristol-Dakota wedding is off, Sarah Palin posted a graphic suggesting that “off” doesn’t mean the wedding will not, at some point, go on.
