Vanity: Sarah Palinís Divorce and Things to Ponder
CP

Posted on 09/09/2019 2:54:33 PM PDT by CondoleezzaProtege

Monitoring Governor Palin’s pre-ascent to the national political scene was one of the stories that prompted my joining FR while in college. I remember Free Republic being one of the few places online (along with Glenn Beck’s show, to his credit) to profile the rising star governor: her successes navigating Alaska’s international corporate oil scene, her carrying a Down Syndrome baby to term, and before anybody in the media or even GOP establishment knew who she was — her qualifications as a viable for runningmate for John McCain. I stayed up all night before the day of the announcement, praying she would be the one.

Fast forward a few years and I attended a special screening of a film entitled “The Undefeated” - a documentary breaking down the media and establishment elite’s (including GOP) unhinged distortion and takedown of Sarah Palin and their continued onslaught against her legacy. It was directed by none other than the little known...Steve Bannon.

The ultimate thesis of the film being that as a working class American, as a Christian, a woman and mother, as a highly charismatic and skilled politician with a formidable record of executive accomplishment — Palin embodied a volatile convergence of the very forces in our country, which pose not only a political threat to the entrenched power structures of our society, but existential and cultural.

And it was with this insight and understanding by which Steve Bannon helped guide our current President to electoral victory in 2016.

I see a lot of posts at the moment trying to rationalize away the divorce and speculate on the Palins’ personal lives...Some observations may be valid — but these discussions miss the point — which is, that her fate (and that of her family) is what awaits *anybody* who dares challenge the establishment especially on that scale. (At least in term of what the establishment intends!) - We are not even told about the extent to which the media and other facets from both political parties worked night and day to drive her out of office, stoke fear in her family and her community (like the Wasilla church burning), how frivolous lawsuits bankrupted her financially, etc...

If you watch video footage of the sprightly, shrewd, and calmly eloquent Palin in the early 2000s at things like the AK gubernatorial debates and things, one can see just how much of a spiritual and psychological toll all that’s unfolded since had had on her.

This is what the media wants for Trump and his family too...but luckily our president has the financial and other buffers by which to withstand the attacks, which will likely come even after he leaves office...And in the meantime of course they will do everything in their power to drive him out even during a second term.

In the meantime the wolves will attack the emerging leaders of the conservative movement and NOTHING is off limits: families (children!) , homes, jobs, etc...And it’s incumbent on everyone to just...be aware. And to view all this in proper context.

I knew a little cutie who was queen of everything at her school. Also named as the sweetest. She got married then around 5 years later she got divorced.

I was surprised that it was her husband who filed which I have read only accounts for 10% of divorces.

Reminds me of an ancient Roman who divorced his wife. His friends asked him how he could divorce such a good woman. The Roman pulled off his shoe. He then asked if any of them could tell him where it pinched.

Sarah Palin's husband, Todd, files for divorce over 'incompatibility of temperament'

snip

Todd Palin has filed for divorce from Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska
and GOP vice presidential candidate, citing "incompatibility of temperament” and
that “they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife."

Todd Palin, 55, asked to dissolve the couple's 31-year marriage in a filing
submitted Friday in Anchorage Superior Court. The paperwork was submitted
on Aug. 29, eight days after the couple's anniversary.

The filing, first reported by the Anchorage Daily News, only uses initials
but details the couple’s marriage date and the birth date of their 11-year
-old son, Trig, and asks for an equal separation of assets and debts.

They really have it out for Mike Pence and his wife now too. Because he is everything they hate. That’s a family that could use some prayer support.

Thank you for posting this.
She needs our prayers, not our gawking - I'm a little embarrassed at some of the comments by Freepers.

Because he is the weaker of the two in my opinion.

A vanity, extraordinarily written. Gov. Palin appeared as a light to worn out conservatives in the nation. She became our Joan of Arc and was treated by us with the respect deserving.
She fought for our country. A rare find for anyone in the political realm.

The divorce news is indeed, saddening. Christians offer the couple up in prayers and ask that they find within themselves the ability to carry on the paths they have chosen.

Sarah will always hold a special place in our hearts. She was unafraid to fight the fight and speak out. GOD bless her.

Thanks. May be and if so he also may be tired of the situation.

Things change overtime — some for the good and some for the bad.

This vanity was obviously written as an antidote to the other threads which stupidly talk about Sarah having “menopause” and “a screeching voice.” Some of us want to chat seriously about what the media did to this woman and her family.
