Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin defended GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump for refusing to name his favorite Bible verse in an interview, claiming it was a "gotcha question."
"You get hit with these gotchas, like most conservatives do, for instance 'what's your favorite Bible verse?' And I ask 'Did they ask Hilary [Clinton] that? What does it have to do with running for the office of the presidency? Is it anybody's business? These personal gotcha questions really trying to get you, us, anybody running for office off game," Palin told Trump in an interview on One America News Network.
Trump responded, "I love the Bible, I'm Protestant, I'm Presbyterian, and they were hitting me with different questions, one after another, and look, I don't know if it's a 'gotcha,' but it probably is." more >>
Bristol Palin, the 24-year-old daughter of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and former abstinence ambassador, announced in a blog post Thursday that she's pregnant, just weeks after calling off her wedding to 2011 U.S. Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer.
The single mother sparked controversy during her mother's 2008 White House campaign with former presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., when it was revealed that she was expecting a baby with her then boyfriend, Levi Johnston. She was reportedly paid $262,500 in 2009 after the birth of her son, Tripp, 6, to become the abstinence ambassador for the teen pregnancy prevention nonprofit Candie's Foundation.
The announcement raised criticisms about her mother's conservative values at the time and in a blog post yesterday Bristol, who is no longer engaged, acknowledged that news of her second pregnancy might be "a huge disappointment to my family." She went on to point out, however, that "there's nothing I can't do with God by my side." more >>

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.

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.

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 >>
