    BRISTOL, VA (WJHL) - A Virginia newspaper reports a possible use for the vacant Virginia Intermont facility. As the country is faced with a surge in minors arriving on their own from Central America, federal Department of Health and Human Service officials are scrambling to find places to house the children. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that U.S officials are in talks of temporarily sheltering unaccompanied immigrant children on the campus of shuttered Saint Paul’s College in Lawrenceville. Among the discussions, is the possibility of housing the children at Virginia Intermont College in Bristol. According to Richmond Times-Dispatch, federal Department of...

    NEW YORK - Bristol Palin says gay activists are “hypocritical” to take offense at “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments. “I think it’s so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style,” she said in a blog post. “I hate how the LGBT community says it’s all about ‘love’ and ‘equality,”’ she continued. “However, if you don’t agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others’ opinions and not just jump to the conclusion...

    Gun owners who have a concealed-carry permit can now take their weapon into select city parks following a 4-1 vote by City Council on Tuesday night that repealed a 2009 policy that banned them. The resolution vote was preceded by 14 citizens voicing their opinions on the issue, most disagreeing with the lifting of the ban and those in the minority thanking the governing body for allowing Second Amendment rights to be preserved in Bristol.

    A highly sought witness in the Benghazi investigation is scheduled to testify this morning behind closed doors in Congress, WND has learned Marine Col. George Bristol is considered a key witness because he may be able to shed light on why no U.S. military help was sent when the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, came under attack on Sept. 11, 2012. The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans died in the attack. Congressional investigators have been trying to locate Bristol for months. As commander of Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, he knew what military options...

Manufacturers also plan to lobby the state’s congressional delegation next week “to make sure they hear from our side,” said Mark Malkowski, president of Stag Arms in New Britain. Bristol-based PTR said in a statement posted on its website that it has not decided where it will move, but has commitments from most employees to relocate.

    A Barnado’s charity shop has been forced to close after the front was smashed during a party celebrating the death of Baroness Thatcher. A gaping hole was left in the window of the store in Brixton, south London, where around 150 people gathered for a street party following the news that Lady Thatcher had died of a stroke. Similar celebrations in Bristol left six police officers injured after an anti-Thatcher crowd turned violent and began throwing missiles at police.

    I’m a Bristol Palin fan. I think the young Christian woman is a role model for teen-aged girls (and boys) who’ve overcome bad decisions in their lives. Bristol’s backstory will no doubt be familiar to most of those who tune in to her new reality show, “Life’s a Tripp,” which premiers tonight on Lifetime network. She became a single mom at 18 years old, the “highest-profile teen pregnancy of the year,” declared the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. That’s because, unlike the other 440,000 or so teen-age girls who gave birth in 2008, Bristol’s mother was not...

    Bristol Palin, one of America’s most famous political daughters, is outraged that President Obama is taking advice from his own children. The 21-year-old lashed out at the commander-in-chief, who said Malia,13, and Sasha,10, helped influence his decision to support gay marriage. “While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads,” the former Alaska governor’s daughter argued in a blog on Thursday. It was aptly titled “Hail to the Chiefs — Malia and Sasha Obama.” Palin — a single mom herself — then argued children are raised in homes where...

Afterwards, we’d paint each other’s toenails, and I’d tell you how great your chin looks. And then, when we were both feeling relaxed and expansive and had built some kind of trust, I'd tell you this: I'm worried about you, girl. You say you're not accusing Levi of raping you, but the way you tell the story—he knew you didn't want to have...

    WHY THIS MATTERS POLITICALLY. There are two games Governor Palin is fighting: one is the battle to take control of her political narrative, the other is taking control of her PERSONAL narrative--and this includes everything surrounding her FAMILY. Having Bristol go on The View is BRILLIANT, and does more for raising Governor Palin's political profile and stature than one may think! With Bristol giving the whole scoop about the details surrounding her pregnancy, she takes the narrative of the "dirty details" and "dirty secrets" away from the mouths of Levi Johnston and rumor-makers in the press, who would try to...

    There were two candidates on the GOP ticket in 2008, John McCain and Sarah Palin. Both had young daughters involved in the campaign. Both have written books about the experience. Guess which book was celebrated and which was savaged? The media's character assassination of Sarah Palin knows no bounds, as she's been smeared as everything from "evil" to "unintelligent." But "Palin Derangement Syndrome" is a hereditary disease, and the media have continued their multigenerational malice toward Bristol Palin in reviews of her new memoir, "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far."

    Anyone hoping for bad girl antics and wild nights in Hollywood from Bristol Palin’s new reality TV project with her “Dancing with the Stars” pal Kyle Massey and his brother Christopher are likely to be disappointed. The way the Masseys described the show backstage at the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards made it sound closer to “Three’s Company,” but more wholesome (and, we’re guessing, not as funny). “Bristol’s coming down from Alaska to live with us in L.A.,” Kyle said backstage at the Daytime Emmy Awards. “It’s pretty much us living life in L.A and showing her how we circulate...

    Kathy Griffin hosted the VH1 Divas salute to the troops this weekend, but her “jokes” about Bristol Palin being “fat” fell flat. "She's the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight," Griffin said in reference to Bristol's trip to the finals on “Dancing With the Stars.” Even after the troops' loud booing, Griffin continued the attack. "No, come on, come on. She gained like 30 pounds a week, I swear to God, it was fantastic,” Griffin said. “She's like the white Precious." (Actress Gabourey Sidibe played the role of “Precious,” a 350-pound black woman in...

    BRISTOL — America’s most popular radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, blasted Bristol the other day for supposedly making off with some of the $3.3 trillion in loans given to businesses by the Federal Reserve during the recession. While the charge is false – even absurd given the city’s paltry place in the financial arena – Limbaugh didn’t stop there. He described Bristol to his millions of listeners as nothing more than ESPN. “That’s all that’s there: ESPN and a couple of cheap hotels,” Limbaugh said on his nationally syndicated show Thursday. That was more than enough to stir Bristol’s...

    What's with the recent trend of tagging articles with palin or sarahpalin that have nothing to do with Sarah Palin? If your article has nothing to do with Palin, please don't tag it as such. It's bad enough that journalists use her name to get hits to their articles or as a cheap source of writing material. We don't need that attitude here too. Just because people want to increase traffic to their posts, doesn't mean they should tag their posted articles with palin or sarahpalin. This just clutters the keyword/tagging system.

    Comedienne Sandra Bernhard called Bristol Palin a hooker on Wednesday's "The Joy Behar Show." JOY BEHAR, HOST: After weeks of speculation that the low-scoring Bristol Palin could actually take the "Dancing With The Stars`" win, the nation breathed the sigh of relief last night as Jennifer Grey was crowned the champion (ph). With me now to talk about this and other stories in the news are Sandra Bernhard, comedian and singer, Rebecca Dana, senior correspondent for the Daily Beast, and Andrea Marcovicci, singer and actress. I called you Andrea. Is it Andrea or Andrea? ANDREA MARCOVICCI, SINGER: It`s Andrea. BEHAR:...

    I’m sure you’ve noticed how humorous, and at the same time pathetic, it’s been to watch the left go crazy about Bristol Palin continuing to remain on “Dancing with the Stars.” Palin is in the top three along with Disney Channel star Kyle Massey and Jennifer Grey of “Dirty Dancing” fame. The show’s season finale will air tonight at 9 p.m. Viewers have voted to keep Sarah Palin’s teenage daughter on the show seven times, despite the fact that neither she nor partner Mark Ballas can compare with the show's better dancers and their judges’ scores consistently reflect that fact....
