While appearing at a hunting and outdoors trade show in Las Vegas on Thursday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin declined to comment on current hot-button political issues but sent the clear message to Republican leadership in Congress that they need to go on the "offensive" with the new majority they have in both houses.
After promoting her outdoor-themed reality show "Amazing America" at the SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show), the 50-year-old former vice presidential candidate told The Blaze that Republicans in Congress need to start acting like they actually have the majority and urged GOP Congress members to stop playing "defense."
"I'm not going to talk politics except to say the GOP had better go on offense," Palin asserted. "Man, they are not going to win a game on defense. Being in the majority there in D.C. — we're blowing it if we just bend our back." more >>
Sarah Palin slammed PETA and took a dig at President Obama in response to backlash she garnered for sharing a controversial photo of her son Trig standing atop the family dog.
The former vice-presidential candidate posted the photo on social networking site Facebook on Jan. 1 while wishing her fans a "Happy New Year," and some took offense. In the photo her six-year-old son Trig, who has Down syndrome, is seen casually using the adopted pet as a "stepping stone" to reach the kitchen sink and animal rights activists blasted the behavior as cruel.
WASHINGTON — Alan Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" fame and a featured speaker at this year's Values Voter Summit, says his family votes for leaders based on their social values, not fiscal policy.
"I vote per my values, what I believe in," said Robertson, the eldest son of Duck Commander company founder Phil Robertson in an interview with The Christian Post on Friday.
A former senior pastor of White's Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana, Robertson explained that, as conservative Christians, his family tends "to vote more because of our spiritual values than anything else." more >>
Former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin, issued a Facebook post inviting famed atheist activist Richard Dawkins to come meet her six-year-old son, Trig, who has Down syndrome after Dawkins tweeted last week that he felt it was "immoral" not to "abort and try again" when an unborn baby has been diagnosed with Down's.
While most people did not respond kindly through social media to Dawkins' initial tweet, which was a response to a woman who asked his advice about the moral dilemma of what to do when pregnant with a fetus diagnosed with Down syndrome, Palin did not criticize Dawkins for what he tweeted. Instead, she seemed to acknowledged his point of view and extended an invitation for Dawkins to come meet her son in hopes that he would see the "beauty" that lies beneath the diagnosis.
Palin's Facebook post, which included 11 pictures of Trig, reads as follows: more >>
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has stated that President Barack Obama should be impeached due to his handling of the most recent crisis on the United States' southern border.
In a column posted on Breitbart.com on Tuesday, Palin explained her reasons for wanting President Obama impeached.
President Barack Obama pushed back Friday against the joke that he wears "mom jeans." "I look very sharp in jeans," he told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview.
"I've been unfairly maligned about my jeans," he said. "The truth is, generally, I look very sharp in jeans."
Obama claimed that the joke originated from the time he wore loose jeans to a baseball game: "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher's mound and didn't want to feel confined while I was pitching." more >>
