A DNA Test Just Revealed The Father Of Bristol Palin’s New Baby… Controversy Erupts

Bristol Palin has given birth twice. Her first child, a boy named Tripp, was born in 2013; his father is Levi Johnson. Her second child, a girl named Sailor Grace, was born in 2015. A DNA test has now confirmed that Dakota Meyer is the father of Sailor, and according to reports, a custody battle with Meyer is underway.

Palin, who lives in Alaska with her family, doesn’t want to share custody with Meyer. He lives in Kentucky, a state one could say is a continent away from Alaska. Bristol, who says she doesn’t mind sending Sailor to Kentucky for occasional visits, doesn’t want to share primary custody with Meyer, and wants to have the final say-so if any conflict arises in the parenting of the child.

Bristol has been criticized for her stances on abstinence since she has two children out of wedlock now.

“I guess those abstinence speeches didn’t work on Bristol,” one critic said.

Bristol’s mother, former Alaska governor and presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, said she viewed the pregnancy as a blessing. “The cool thing about putting your faith in God is he certainly is a God of second chances, third chances, fourth chances, fifth chances. I screw up all the time,” she remarked, adding she’s looking forward to being a grandmother to Sailor.

Financially speaking, it appears as though the child will be just fine. According to one report, Meyer initially sued for child support. Now, he’s apparently accepting financial responsibility for his child. Meyer brings home over $137,000 per year, and he would be required to send $1754 per month in child support to Bristol to provide for Sailor.

Breaking: Bristol Palin’s Ex-Fiance Just Made Massive GOP Endorsement, Sarah Won’t Like It…

Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Dakota Meyer endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz for president on Tuesday in South Carolina. The former Marine was engaged to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol last year.

Meyer’s endorsement of Cruz comes just days before Saturday’s primary, in a state where veterans will have a strong say in who the winner will be. TheBlaze reports that 12 percent of the Palmetto State’s population is made up of veterans, versus approximately 7 percent nationwide.

Meyer, who is among a handful of Medal of Honor recipients since the Vietnam War, said: “I am confident that Ted Cruz has the ability and resolve to be Commander-in-Chief. His record of standing up and fighting for what he believes in shows that he is not someone who buckles under pressure. Ted is ready to led this country – and I look forward to help uniting conservatives and veterans behind this campaign.”

“We need a Commander-in-Chief who works with our allies and makes it known that certain actions against the United States and its allies will not be tolerated,” the Marine added.

Honored to help. #tedcruz #teamcruz

Cruz responded to the endorsement: “We need to restore America’s leadership in the world at a time when Obama’s foreign policy has put America and it’s national security interests in jeopardy. I am honored to have Dakota’s support and have him as part of our team to help win the White House in 2016.”

As reported by Western Journalism, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has thrown her support behind Cruz’s GOP rival Donald Trump. Last month, Palin did not have kind things to say about Meyer, after he filed a suit seeking joint custody of and child support for the baby daughter he had with Bristol.

“For many months we have been trying to reach out to Dakota Myers [sic] and he has wanted nothing to do with either Bristol’s pregnancy or the baby,” the former governor said. 

“Paramount to the entire Palin family is the health and welfare of Sailor Grace,” she added, and claimed that Meyer is merely attempting to “save face.”

Meyer received the Medal of Honor for repeatedly charging into a kill zone in 2009 in search of four missing Marines in Afghanistan. He rescued 36 troops and killed eight Taliban fighters, according to the Daily Mail.

Meyer and Palin met in 2013, when he was a guest on Sarah Palin’s show Amazing America.

Watch: Sarah Palin Loses It On Today Show Hosts When They Ask Wrong Question- ‘That Was A Promise!’

When her interviewers strayed from the political to the personal, Sarah Palin fought back Monday against the hosts of Today.

Palin, who endorsed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, was fielding questions about Trump, Ted Cruz, and Monday’s Iowa caucuses when Today co-host Savannah Guthrie shifted the ground to ask the former Alaska governor about the arrest of her son, Track, in a domestic violence incident. Guthrie asked about comments Palin made at the time of her son’s arrest that Guthrie interpreted to mean Palin was blaming President Obama for “some of the PTSD that’s out there.”

 

“I never said that,” Palin fired back. “You guys brought me here to talk about Iowa politics and the caucus tonight, not to talk about my kids. And that was a promise. But as things go in the world of media, you guys don’t always keep your promises evidently.”

Matt Lauer asked Palin if she regretted her comments about the president and PTSD.

“What did I say that was offensive? I don’t regret any comment,” Palin said. “Because I didn’t lay PTSD at the foot of the president. I did say … adamantly that there is much more that the Commander in Chief can do to prove he respects our troops and will let them do their job.”

Palin then challenged the Today hosts to find the quote they were referencing, admonishing them that finding a specific quote to use “allows the media to be more credible.”

Before the show went to a commercial break, Today host Matt Lauer insisted no promises were made.

“Well, I was told that this interview is about the caucus tonight in Iowa,” Palin replied.

During the discussion of politics and the Iowa voting, Palin said the Republican Party is in a good position as “good candidates” Trump and Cruz are at the top. When asked whether it was a difficult decision to choose Trump when she had supported Cruz in his election to the U.S. Senate, she replied she wanted Cruz to continue to serve in the Senate and have Trump in the White House.

LOOK What Happened To Donald Trump Immediately After Sarah Palin Endorsed Him

Sarah Palin’s emphatic return to the national Republican stage has had a major impact, according to the most recent Reuters poll.

Reuters released a new poll Friday showing that in just three days — from right before Palin’s endorsement until Friday — Trump’s standing in the polls jumped seven percentage points. Meanwhile, the poll showed Sen. Ted Cruz falling by six percentage points.

By the numbers, Trump rose from 33.4 percent support to 40.6 percent. Cruz fell from 16.3 percent support to 10.5 percent.

Politico, which convened what it calls the “Politico Caucus of strategists, activists and operatives in the first four nominating states,” said Palin’s support was likely more of a blow to Cruz than a push for Trump.

Palin’s “main impact will be to underscore that not even Ted Cruz’s friends like Ted Cruz,” an Iowa Republican told Politico. “It denied him another media cycle or two, and he hasn’t had a good one for many weeks.”

“It does more to hurt Cruz than help Trump,” added another. All answers in the Politco caucus were anonymous.

Collectively, the Iowa insiders told Politico the events of the past few weeks – criticism of Cruz on ethanol, questions about his constitutional eligibility, longtime Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad’s call for his defeat, and Palin’s endorsement of Trump – have hurt Cruz as the Feb. 1 caucuses near.

Others said Palin was also a positive force for Trump.

“Over the years Palin has actually cultivated a number of relationships in Iowa,” said Craig Robinson, publisher of the website The Iowa Republican, told the New York Times. “There are the Tea Party activists who still think she’s great and a breath of fresh air, but she also did a good job of courting Republican donors in the state.”

Others said Palin will help bring evangelical Christians to Trump.

“Palin’s brand among evangelicals is as gold as the faucets in Trump Tower,” said Ralph Reed, the chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. “Endorsements alone don’t guarantee victory, but Palin’s embrace of Trump may turn the fight over the evangelical vote into a war for the soul of the party.”

Ouch: Combat Vets Just Teamed Up AGAINST Sarah Palin Over This Major Controversy

GOP front-runner Donald Trump pulled a coup when he received the endorsement of Sarah Palin. But just as Palin was making that big splash, her son was having trouble with the police back in Alaska. Palin seemed to blame PTSD for her veteran son’s troubles, but her blame is not sitting well with veterans.

When Trump brought Sarah Palin to Iowa to make the big announcement of the former Alaska governor’s endorsement, her announcement was darkened a bit by news coming out the same day that her 26-year-old combat veteran son, Track, had been arrested back in Wasilla, Alaska.

Palin insisted her son’s troubles were a result of Obama’s policies, but she also hinted Track might be suffering from Post Traumatic Distress Disorder (PTSD).

“I can talk personally about this, I guess it’s kind of the elephant in the room,” Palin said about her son’s troubles in Oklahoma. “My son, like so many others–they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country.”

But it wasn’t long before some veterans publicly criticized Palin for blaming her son’s troubles on PTSD.

As Foreign Policy reports, veteran Brandon Friedman, head of the public affairs firm The McPherson Square Group and former digital media director for the Department of Veterans Affairs, slammed Palin for the conceit.

“Here we have Sarah Palin yakking about PTSD, and she’s talking about it in a context that is extraordinarily harmful,” Friedman said. “She’s basically saying, ‘Of course my son beats his girlfriend, because he has PTSD like all the veterans.’”

Foreign Policy also revealed a long list of tweets by veterans who were critical of Palin’s claims.

The UK’s Daily Mail also found several veterans angry at Palin’s claims.

A veteran and Twitter user going by the name of ‘DKey’ wrote: “As a combat vet, EXTREMELY disgusted by #SarahPalin blaming PTSD 4 domestic abuse.”

He went on to say, “Fragile male ego & compulsive masculinity did it NOT PTSD.”

‘DKey’ then added in another tweet saying, “I’ve deployed twice had more combat vets in my units than I can count. NOT ONE has laid hands on another because of PTSD.”

Another Twitter user who says he was in Track Palin’s barracks tweeted that it was wrong of Sarah Palin to portray her son as a victim.

Jason Firell wrote, “Speaking as a combat vet who literally slept in the same barracks as Track Palin, his mother is wrong and her son is not a victim.”
