Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, December 17, 2017

Track Palin, the oldest son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was arrested Saturday in Wasilla, Alaska, on charges of domestic violence. It marks the second time he's been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in two years. Palin, 28, was arraigned Sunday morning on three counts: felony burglary, misdemeanor reckless assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief for causing up to $500 in property damage, according to online court records. Further details were not immediately available. The felony burglary charge indicates Palin is accused of hurting or attempting to hurt someone while committing burglary.

I'm not shocked. Track Palin has been a bad seed since he was a teenager. Breaking into a locked compound and cutting the brakes on school buses back in 2005 was a good indicator that this brat has no conscience ~ which makes him a dangerous sociopath.

Track should be watched as he might become a mass shooter.

Not making excuses for anyone, but from what has been reported to me from other soldiers, alcoholism and domestic violence is a hazard from being inside up for up to 5 months at a time. The natives have a serious problem with both and they have lived in that environment for millennia. Cabin fever is real. Being sun starved causes depression and irritability,(and the nights during winter can last 6 weeks). The only reason this made news is who was involved.

It made news because the republicans tried to tell us a bunch of violent hillbillies with cabin fever were the best option for running our country.

#12 | Posted by hatter5183, Yea, but as far as typifying the family as a bunch of violent hillbillys is unfair. As far as scandal, violence and self inflicted mortality they would have far to go to approach that of the Kennedy's. Seems to be a double standard, What excuse do they have? Urban, Yankee liberals I guess are exempt from similar judgement.

That thought used to scare me, but then we elected worse.

Given these arrests and the party brawl the entire family was involved in back in 2014 ...

... I think the negative characterizations of the Palins are pretty accurate.

DocNutJobO are you comparing the Palin's to the Kennedy's? Did the doctor slap your mother when you were born?

Not to mention her incoherent ramblings, nonsensical blather and the massacre of the English language that brought John McCain to his knees.

Twinpac, I've said this pretty often before but it bears repeating. I've had a lot of respect for John McCain throughout his career and I'm saddened that he's suffering as he seems to be right now. But his introduction of Caribou Barbie to the world outside of Alaska nearly negates that respect entirely.

I lost a lot of respect for McCain during the Palin era, too, but since those are by-gone days, I'm not going to hold a grudge for putting us through that agony. I'll never understand the logic but it got us Obama who pulled the country back from the brink of a recession and that's good enough for me.

Maybe..

Reports that Track Palin vandalized school buses aren't true, says pal
"Track wasn't with me. Track had nothing to do with it," participant Deryck Harris, 20, said Wednesday in an exclusive interview.

Citing an anonymous judicial source, the Anchorage radio station 1080 KUDO was the first to report last week that Track Palin was the unidentified 16-year-old delinquent who not only trashed the buses but also swiped the bottle of alcohol that fueled the teen rampage.
..
Authorities never identified the two other juveniles accused of deflating the tires on 44 buses, breaking mirrors and disconnecting the engine block heaters of 110 buses in sub-zero weather.

The incident forced the Mat-Su Borough School District, which includes Palin's hometown of Wasilla, to cancel school for a day, according to the local paper the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman.

The Anchorage Daily News reports it was Sarah Palin who called 911 over the weekend to say her son, Track, was "freaking out and was on some type of medication."

The younger Palin was arrested on assault and burglary charges after he repeatedly hit his father, Todd Palin, at the family home.

LOL..it sounds like Trig cooked up a wicked batch of meth.

""Are you ready to make America great again? We all have a part in this. We all have a responsibility. Looking around at all of you, you hardworking Iowa families. You farm families, and teachers, and teamsters, and cops, and cooks. You rockin' rollers. And holy rollers! All of you who work so hard. You full-time moms. You with the hands that rock the cradle. You all make the world go round, and now our cause is one.

"When asked why I would jump into a primary -- kind of stirring it up a little bit maybe -- and choose one over some friends who are running and I've endorsed a couple others in their races before they decided to run for president, I was told left and right, "You are going to get so clobbered in the press. You are just going to get beat up, and chewed up, and spit out." You know, I'm thinking, And? You know, like you guys haven't tried to do that every day since that night in ‘08, when I was on stage nominated for VP, and I got to say, "yeah, I'll go, send me, you betcha. I'll serve." And, like you all, I'm still standing. So those of us who've kind of gone through the wringer as Mr. Trump has, makes me respect you even more. That you're here, and you're putting your efforts, you're putting reputations, you're putting relationships on the line to do the right thing for this country. Because you are ready to make America great again.

"Well, I am here because like you I know that it is now or never. I'm in it to win it because we believe in America, and we love our freedom. And if you love your freedom, thank a vet. Thank a vet, and know that the United States military deserves a commander-in-chief that our country passionately, and will never apologize for this country. A new commander-in-chief who will never leave our men behind. A new commander-in-chief, one who will never lie to the families of the fallen. I'm in it, because just last week, we're watching our sailors suffer and be humiliated on a world stage at the hands of Iranian captors in violation of international law, because a weak-kneed, capitulator-in-chief has decided America will lead from behind. And he, who would negotiate deals, kind of with the skills of a community organizer maybe organizing a neighborhood tea, well, he deciding that, "No, America would apologize as part of the deal," as the enemy sends a message to the rest of the world that they capture and we kowtow, and we apologize, and then, we bend over and say, "Thank you, enemy." We are ready for a change. We are ready and our troops deserve the best. A new commander-in-chief whose track record of success has proven he is the master at the art of the deal. He is one who would know to negotiate."
