Sarah Palin Blames Son’s Domestic Abuse On Obama While campaigning for Donald Trump today in Tulsa, Sarah Palin addressed the news that her son has been arraigned “on charges of domestic violence assault, interfering with a report of domestic violence crime and possession of a firearm while intoxicated.”

Palin attributed her son’s alleged actions to PTSD, which she said was a result of veterans, such as her son, having a president who doesn’t admire them and their military service.

After suggesting that Obama has deserted and disrespected veterans, Palin explained in her classic gibberish:

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 the country. And that starts from the top, and it’s a shame that our military personnel even have to wonder if they have to question if they’re respected anymore. It starts from the top. The question, though, that comes from our own president, where they have to look at him and wonder, ‘Do you know what we go through? Do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?’

And that is why, Palin explained, people should vote for Trump.

She said that her son’s PTSD “makes me realize more than ever, it is now or never for the sake of America’s finest that we have that commander-in-chief who will respect them and honor them.”

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers."
