Sarah Palin's disappearing acts (update)


All seven parts of the video of Sarah Palin making her "choice" speech in Indiana have been removed from youtube. Including her account of the decision she made regarding an abortion, in Part 6 of the collection.

Since Sarah Palin became vice presidential candidate in late August 2008, lots and lots of things have been removed from the web.

Photographs taken during her "pregnancy" with Trig were scrubbed from the state of Alaska official website, e-mail accounts that had been used for official state business were closed and all records disappeared, Bristol's and her friends' MySpace accounts were scrubbed between certain dates and now her Evansville speech has vanished from youtube.

Sherry and Mercede Johnston mentioned their computers being "cleaned" during the vice presidential campaign and loads of photos scrubbed.

Andree McLeod is still waiting for some of the e-mails that remained, a request she made several months ago...

Sarah Palin's open and transparent style of governing never ceases to amaze me!

UPDATE: The videos that were embeded on some sites were removed by the user. There are other versions still out there, posted by a different user.

The fact remains that a lot of stuff was scrubbed from the net and the governor is not very transparent at all, even if her choice speech is still available.

I may have started the post from a false premise, but the bulk of it stands! And I stand corrected on a minor detail... Sorry!

Ooops. Sarah admits to being pro-choice and now the evidence is scrubbed.

Oooops. Bristol has at least two pregnancies and now the evidence is scrubbed.

Ooops, Sarah was for the bridge to nowhere before she was both against and for the bridge to nowhere.

Everything about Sarah is the bridge to nowhere.

Ooops. Ooops. Ooops.

And don't leave out the fact that when she was mayor of Wasilla she changed laws there, so now all the documentation pertaining to her house and how it got built are scrubbed. That issue still needs to be investigated!!

Can someone explain to me how it is that YouTube videos can vanish? Does someone make a request to the administrator to remove certain videos or did they bully the person(s) who posted them?

I can understand how officials of the state of AK can scrub stuff on their sites but I always thought the viral videos were harder to "erase." ??

CC from far away: The video clips are still on You Tube, I just looked at them before I posted my comment (the one just before yours)

CC,

The person who posted them originally removed them from youtube.

kygirl915,

Well remembered about the house that Todd built!

Yup the house (Gov Mansion North?) that looks like a sports complex with the float plane parked out back? I'm waiting on that one. It'll be good.

(Wasn't there a question about whether the plane was insured and/or if Todd was licensed to fly it?)

regina said...

It looks like the videos are back on youtube, maybe from a different user...

I did a bit of sleuthing:

The person who posted the videos that were embeded on various websites removed them. The ones that remain were posted by C4P, funnily enough...

OK. So maybe there's no conspiracy about the disappearing videos, but all the rest of the scrubbed stuff remains scrubbed!

Where Palin treads, scrubbing follows....

kygirl915 I saw your comment about the house on Immoral Minority. I hope it is being investigated.

it would take the FBI about 8 hours to trace the materials used in the house and who made the payments for them. One visit to Spenards and Palin may be toast.

Will one of the workers that built the house please step forward. Tell the FBI who paid you for your hours spent building the house.

Nothing is ever clear or transparent with GINO.

I hope the "Feds" she hates so much are closing in on her.

Check the house! Please Feds, check the house!

WTH, check everything!

Isn't that what everyone wanted, clean and transparent?

Clean? Nobody has done as much scrubbing as her minions.

Transparent? Doesn't that mean it looks as if there's nothing there when there is -- like a perfectly clean glass door that birds bash into?

Quit your griping. Here in Chicago we're used to having the dirt in plain sight. :)

Have you seen the poll on line? Who gave birth Trig Palin?

I guess this is somehow getting into the mainstream more.

KYgirl915, I have read some of your posts yesterday. So do you know people who really know the truth about this and how confident are you it will all come out?

One of Sarah's worst offenses is religiongate in my opinion. I am surprised someone has not followed an ethics violation about this. I don't know if the FBI would be interested.

When referring to federal agencies (like the FBI) it is not appropriate to use the term FEDS. This was discussed on another blog yesterday. I have never heard anyone but Sarah Palin refer to the federal government this way and it is disrespectful. I think she is very anti-federal government so why should she EVER have the privilege of serving it in any capacity.

To the person here who used it, I know you did not mean anything, but honestly it is slang and considered kind of disrespectful.

Anonymous@21:40,

Please note that I used the term "Feds" in inverted commas, to paraphrase Sarah Palin. She's the one who always refers to the federal government as the "Feds".

I hope the "Feds", not in a disrespectful way, investigate Sarah Palin. The authorities in Alaska don't seem to be very interested or are beholden to the governor.

I hope the FBI investigates her as well. It is the only way she will be brought down completely. I know you (I think I know who you are:)) encourage people everywhere to report things. Keep it up.

When first read your headline, I thought it meant Palin was resigning!!!!!!

Joy leapt through my heart!

housegate. glass railing on the 2nd floor of her house match the glass rainings in the sports shrine. The widows that face the lake match the windows in front of the sports shrine. I'd post the URLs but they always seem to get blocked. Just google the matt laurer interview for a good look at the glass rails in her home, and google the wasilla sports "complex" pics, and connect the dots in a few minutes. the house was also built when she was head of Ted Stevens PAC, no permitts were required any longer, it's not a DIY type of home, you can just "lift" those huge windows manually to the high 2nd floor with few friends and a six pack and the shrine was built at the same time 2 miles away...so......someone know something....

lisabeth said...

It seems like it would not be that hard to find out who the builders are. Don't they have to apply for building permits?

regina said...

Lisabeth,

The house is said to have been built by Todd and some of his buddies...

The corruption is so thick in Alaska, the FBI might be useless? It makes no sense at all why there has not been one thing that sticks except that they are thugs that no one can touch. They can't even recall or impeach her.

lisabeth @22:57

My understanding is that while Plain was mayor of Wasilla, building permits were discontinued, a few months before the construction started on her house. I think only a Notice of Completion is required.

teal said...

no record of the actual building huh... and did anyone say anything atthe time?

is there a record of the completion?

whats the tax value [they do pay taxes on it...right}

did they make enuff income at the time to cover the cost. OR did they take out loans to cover the cost of building.

who did the plans for the house? more that likely, the plans camefirst.

timeline stevens `vs` palin

anyone look at the records of & amount of supplies ordered, and frunished for the sports complex? was a permit required for it?

contractors might be the same Buddies, Toddie speaks about...
