No Truth to Latest Rumors (Palin)
Facebook ^ | 8/1/09 | Meg Stapleton

Posted on 08/01/2009 11:54:27 AM PDT by LA Woman3

Yet again, some so-called journalists have decided to make up a story. There is no truth to the recent “story” (and story is the correct term for this type of fiction) that the Palins are divorcing. The Palins remain married, committed to each other and their family, and have not purchased land in Montana (last week it was reported to be Long Island).

Less than one week ago, Governor Palin asked the media to “quit making things up.” We appreciate that the more professional journalists decided to question this story before repeating it.

Told ya all, I don’t even know Sarah and I knew the story was a lie. People, stop believing garbage. We are all much smarter then this, this is why the media has so much power, even though we all know they are nothing but crooked leftist LIARS, people still believe them. I hope Sarah sues, this is the only way this nonsense is gonna stop

I was going to post “quit making things up” on the previous thread, but quite rightly the thread was pulled.

Dennis Zaki, a CNN stringer based out of Anchorage.

That’s the guy who started the rumor.

I never heard, saw or read anything about Todd and Sarah Palin divorcing but I can see how this kind of 'story' would make the leftmedia salivate. They hate normal, middle class, Christian people and they have a particular, fear-based hatred toward Sarah Palin and, by extension, her immediate family.

A Palin divorce would have the left practically weeping with joy as - for weeks thereafter - they gleefully attacked Sarah Palin for being, in their warped view, not only a 'quitter' (as governor) but a 'quitter' as a wife.

I simply wouldn't believe that Todd and Sarah Palin divorced until I heard it from Sarah Palin. Like most conservatives, I'm very pleased to learn the alleged impending Palin divorce is a bare-faced lie cooked up by the media leftists...and frankly, I'm not surprised. These people are incapable of honesty. Their twisted, statist ideology has rendered them useless as any kind of source for truth.

It’s time for Sarah to start suing these bastards. that is the only way this will stop. By suing them for libel and defamation of character. Money talks, and if these clowns start losing big bucks they will stop doing this. Adios Journalism, I hardly knew ya, 2008 is when it officially died but it died a long time before that. This is what leftists do, they start spreading lies to destroy a human being, so not only do they want to destroy Sarah’s political career, but her MARRIAGE too. My God, how low will these roaches go. They keep on sinking further and further into that abyss don’t they. Soul, what soul do these jackasses have, NONE. What more do they want from this woman, they took away her job, now they want to take away her marriage. DISGUSTING VULTURES, I have no other way to describe them

THe AK Report is a left wing site.

The Far Left feels that since some conservative sites are discussing Obama’s birth certificate, they feel justified in making things up about Palin.

The site you linked to was pulled twice this afternoon by the FR moderators.

If Carol Burnett could win a libel suit against The Enquirer, it only stands to reason that Sarah Palin should be able to demonstrate the same kind of harm/damage.

Yeah..., and that’s what I hope works out in the long run for this story (i.e., that they are actually having *no problems*)... but I’m still going to watch and see how it plays out...

That’s worrisome for me, because I know if there are family problems, that that is what takes first priority, and that means future political plans are put on hold....

Of course, I want the best for them as a family, but I would also like to see Sarah Palin in some significant future political plans for conservatives...

I could see that it’s definitely left-wing, but I would be more upset if it was true and that’s my concern, here, because I’ve posted in the past that I would vote for Sarah Palin for a Presidential run — but if there are problems there, I know that’s going to prevent a Presidential run. So, I’m concerned about that...

If it’s nothing, then it will go away. But, I’m still concerned...

Check out Conservatives4Palin, they are reporting that Dennis Zaki the CNN stringer is in bed with the anti-Palin Alaska bloggers, including those who are the “Trig Truthers”

You wanna know why liberals hate Sarah’s marriage so much, simple, look at these libs, look who are they are married to, Elliot Spitzer, cheater, Bill Clinton, cheater, David Patterson, cheater, they all cheat on their wives, and here they see a woman, a beautiful woman, happily married to the only man she has ever loved for over 20+ years(in fact their anniversary is in August) with 5 beautiful children and they can’t stand it. Like Dennis Miller said many months ago, “Liberal women hate Sarah Palin because she has great sex” it was a joke, but he is RIGHT. Look at Sarah, and look at these liberal women, you will all see why they hate her so much

Yeah, I saw that, and that’s what I’m trusting is true. I do know that if a story like this is false, then it will fizzle out and go away. And the “proof” of that kind of story being false, will be that the Palin family stays together and everything keeps on going as it has in the past, over the next few months. And that is what I’m trusting it will be...

That’s what I would like to see...

Palin's enemies have gone from desperate to mentally insane.

But not too insane for CNN. One of the ringleaders of this particular garbage story is Dennis Zaki, who has been used as a stringer by CNN for Palin stuff.

That is not fake that is not a couple about to get a divorce.

Compare pictures of them together or another example George W. and Laura to pictures of Bill and Hillary or Michelle and Barack.

Yeah, I saw that. I’m hoping that it’s all a fuss about nothing. As I’ve said here before, I voted for Palin more than I vote for McCain... LOL... But this is disturbing to me, because that would be the one kind of thing that could put Palin’s future plans on hold. However, I know that “time will tell” and if there is nothing to it, then nothing will come of it...
