Bristol Palin Just Sent This Blistering Message To All Those Mocking Her Second Pregnancy

As Western Journalism recently reported, Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, announced her second out-of-wedlock pregnancy via social media with a less-than-enthusiastic statement.

Calling it a “painful time,” she acknowledged that it has been hard for her to “keep [her] chin up on this one.”

Palin, 24, went on to write that “this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you.”

After her 2008 pregnancy created controversy for her mother’s vice presidential campaign, Palin split with her son’s father, Levi Johnston, and was engaged to Dakota Meyer. The couple called off their planned wedding weeks before Palin announced her pregnancy.

Enduring an almost immediate backlash of criticism from those who questioned her stance on faith and morality, Palin eventually responded with a biting retort in which she walked back much of her initial statement.

“I made a mistake,” she acknowledged, “but it’s not the mistake all these giddy a—holes have loved to assume.”

She went on to claim that her second child “was actually planned,” adding that her family’s newest addition “is not a disappointment” and that her son, Tripp, “is going to make the best big brother!!”

To those who suggested she abort her second child, Palin wrote:

When I realized I was pregnant, I knew I would be completely crucified. But I never even thought of aborting this child, NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE. I am pregnant. This is not the ideal situation, but life is important even if it’s not in the most absolute ideal circumstance. This is more confirmation on what I’ve always stood for. I’ve always been pro-life and I am standing for life now. Deal with it.

Johnston is apparently confident in his ex’s parenting skills. He recently told TMZ that Palin is a “great mom.”

Breaking: Bristol Palin Makes Big Announcement She Says Is ‘A Huge Disappointment To My Family’

The Palins have made headlines twice this week.

As reported by Western Journalism, first came the announcement by Fox News that Sarah Palin was no longer under contract as a regular contributor to the network, though she is expected to make occasional appearances.

Next, on Thursday, Bristol Palin wrote on her blog that she’s pregnant. The news comes a month after Sarah announced her oldest daughter would not be marrying Medal of Honor recipient and former Marine Dakota Meyer.

Dakota and Bristol met when he came to Alaska to appear in Sarah Palin’s “Amazing America” program, which airs on Sportsman’s Channel. The two were engaged for two months and planned to marry on May 23.

“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 former Alaska governor wrote on her Facebook page. “They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration will not be held.”

Days later, Bristol explained on her Patheos blog: “This is a painful time for family and friends and I would just really appreciate your prayers.” She added: “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.”

People reports that Bristol has not confirmed that Dakota is the father.

Regarding the pregnancy, Bristol writes under the title “Big News”:

(I’m announcing this news a lot sooner than I ever expected due to the constant trolls who have nothing better to talk about!!!)

I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant.

Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one.

At the end of the day there’s nothing I can’t do with God by my side, and I know I am fully capable of handling anything that is put in front of me with dignity and grace.

Life moves on no matter what.  So no matter how you feel, you get up, get dressed, show up, and never give up.

When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.

I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you.

But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.

My little family always has, and always will come first.

Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.

Fox News Just Confirmed This BIG Report About Sarah Palin’s Future With The Network

If there’s one public figure the left absolutely loves to hate — a lady whose constant bashing in and by the liberal media would seem to prove it’s the libs who are waging a “war on women” — it’s Sarah Palin.

In a just-confirmed report that the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential contender is no longer under contract as a regular contributor to Fox News, the left-leaning website Politico headlined: “Fox dumps Sarah Palin.” Another conservative-smearing site, Mother Jones, screams: “Fox News Has Apparently Had Enough of Sarah Palin.” Huffington Post declares: “Fox News Fails To Renew Sarah Palin’s Contract.”

While Fox News has reportedly confirmed that Palin is no longer under contract to the cable net, there’s been no suggestion in any of the coverage that the parting was anything other than amicable. There’s been no reporting that it was the network’s decision to “dump” Palin. In fact, there’s been no reporting on whose decision it was not to continue the formal, contractual relationship — quite possibly, it was Palin herself who decided not to be bound any longer by her Fox News obligation so that she could make herself more available to other media outlets.

In the Politico piece whose bold headline blares, “Fox dumps Sarah Palin,” the writer would seem to discount his own article’s presumptive and unsubstantiated headline by noting that Palin is now free to “appear on other networks and cables” as the 2016 election cycle shifts into a higher gear. The writer also notes that Palin is super-busy with a number of projects, political and otherwise.

Palin, 51, is expected to make occasional guest appearances on Fox and Fox Business, and will appear on other networks and cables. She has a show on the Sportsman Channel, does a lot of speeches, and will announce a new publishing project soon.

Palin, on her own and through her political action committee SarahPAC, is also expected to be very active in the campaigns of a number of Republican candidates for Congress and for various governorships. So, clearly, it’s not as though Palin will be retreating to her Alaska home to live an obscure and unappreciated life in the shadows.

As the Politico article reports: “This week, SarahPAC is donating to over 40 candidates. She is currently out in the mail to several thousand SarahPAC donors with a half-hour documentary DVD detailing her impact on Republican politics over the past three cycles.”

Reportedly, the Palin-Fox split occurred around June 1st. But the Fox News website that showcases “on air personalities” still features a lengthy and detailed look at Palin’s life and times, referring to her as a Fox News “contributor” who is an “influential force in the national debate.”

Palin is a contributor for FOX News where she offers her political commentary and analysis across all FOX News platforms, including FOX Business Channel, foxnews.com, and FOX News Radio. She also participates in special event political programming for FOX Broadcasting.

By the way, Sarah Palin’s “politician” page on Facebook has some 4.4 million likes. The Facebook “media” page of the organization that claimed Fox “dumped” Palin as an irrelevant has-been boasts only about one-eighth that many.

Sarah Palin Might Have Just Enthusiastically Revealed Who She Supports For 2016

The day after he formally announced his candidacy, 2016 presidential hopeful Donald Trump received a glowing compliment – if not an endorsement – from one of America’s most recognizable political figures.

Sarah Palin opined in a Facebook post Wednesday that the backlash Trump received after making his announcement should be a sign that he is “doing something right,” going on to point out some of the qualities she believes make him a good leader.

Capture

“There’s no denying Donald J. Trump’s accomplishments and drive to create opportunity for every willing American to succeed,” she wrote. “His own success is testament to the job-creating achievements made possible when one applies the courageous and tenacious pro-private sector precepts we need to fire up the economy.”

Acknowledging Trump entered an already crowded primary field, she said his presence – as with all of the candidates – is good for the party.

“This,” she pointed out, is “in contrast with the pro-big government party’s practice of merely anointing a chosen one, thus robbing voters of healthy debate.”

It is, she claimed, the responsibility of Republican voters to ignore the mainstream media and select the most electable, ideologically sound candidate from within the field to square off against the Democrat nominee in 2016.

“THEN,” she wrote, “on an even playing field, in 2016, we can charge forward after the radical left hears America shout, ‘You’re fired!’”

Her statement was met with some support, including those who suggested she join the ticket as Trump’s running mate. Others expressed cynicism, many of whom pointed to the fact that Trump believes Oprah Winfrey would make a good vice president as evidence that he is the wrong choice.

Sarah Palin Jumps Into Duggar Fray By Body Slamming Liberal Star’s Hypocrisy

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin took to Facebook on Thursday to defend the embattled Duggar family and highlighted the liberal media’s hypocrisy in covering the story.

Palin points to Lena Dunham, writer and star of the HBO series Girls, as evidence of liberal double standards. Dunham published her bestselling memoir Not That Kind of Girl last year, in which she describes “using anything a sexual predator might do” to get her six-year old younger sister to kiss her and perform sexual acts with her.

Unlike the Duggars, Dunham received no punishment for this revelation, while the Duggars’ show 19 Kids and Counting was pulled from the air by TLC, due to the actions of one of the members of their family, Josh, as a young teenager, years before there was a program.

Palin writes: “HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE’S SEXUAL “EXPERIMENTS” AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION? YOU PEDOPHILE, YOU”

The former governor continued: “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 left-wing 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.”

Sarah’s daughter, Bristol, blogged about the liberal media’s hypocrisy regarding the Duggars, as well.

She wrote that Dunham’s account of her acts of pedophilia made her “want to puke.”

“Dunham was praised for her ‘honest and witty’ book. The double standards make me sick. Josh Duggar touched a sleeping girls breast – a terrible thing to go. But now their ENTIRE family is punished and their hit show is canceled? He’s labeled as a pedophile? His family is crucified!” Bristol added.

Gov. Palin drew her thoughts to close by offering sympathy and an exhortation to the Duggars to not give in:

I hate for anyone to go through this game liberals are allowed to play, relentlessly attacking on an uneven playing field until a conservative’s career, relationships, and reputation are destroyed. To the media’s targets I encourage, “Rise above by never claiming ‘victim,’ tell the truth, and keep the faith!”
