GOING NUTS: Sarah Palin goes Birther and complains about "Stupid Conspiracies", her lawyer Thomas Van Flein goes Facebook!

Sarah Palin is at breaking point - she has lost it.

In a radio interview, she suddenly "goes birther", as the Daily Kos and Politico have reported. Sarah says that the question of Obama's birth certificate is a "fair question" and she says that she herself has "provided Trig's birth certificate"!

No, Sarah, you have never provided Trig's birth certificate! Have you forgotten to take your meds today? Did you provide Trig's birth certificate in the "fantasy world" you live in?

You didn't provide Trig's birth certificate because you didn't give birth to Trig, and the birth certificate doesn't show what it's "supposed to show"!

Sarah Palin made the remarks while speaking to conservative talker Rusty Humphries:


"HUMPHRIES: Sarah Palin here on the Rusty Humphries Show. One of the questions Jason asks is would you make the birth certificate an issue if you ran?

PALIN: I think the public rightly is still making it an issue. I don’t have a problem with that. I don’t know if I would have to bother to make it an issue because I think there are enough members of the electorate that still want answers.

HUMPHRIES: Do you think it’s a fair question to be looking at?

PALIN: I think it’s a fair question just like I think past associations and past voting records. All of that is fair game. You know, I’ve got to tell you too, I think our campaign, the McCain-Palin campaign didn’t do a good enough job in that area. We didn’t call out Obama and some of his associates on their records and what their beliefs were, and perhaps what their future plans were, and I don’t think that was fair to voters to not have done our job as candidates and a campaign to bring to light a lot of things that now we’re seeing manifest in the administration.

HUMPHRIES: I mean, truly if your past is fair game and your kids are fair game, certainly Obama’s past should be. I mean, we want to treat men and women equally, right?

PALIN: Hey, you know, that’s a great point. And that weird conspiracy theory freaky thing that people talk about that Trig isn’t my real son, and a lot of people that went "Well, you need to produce his birth certificate, you need to prove that he’s your kid," which we have done, but yeah, so maybe we can reverse that, and use the same [inaudible] thinking on the other one.

[Note: Final sentence of transcript edited for accuracy.]"

The Huffington Post currently reports the story on their frontpage:

In response to these reports, Sarah has just released a statement on facebook called "Stupid Conspiracies"- and it gets worse:

"Stupid Conspiracies

Today at 10:16pm

Voters have every right to ask candidates for information if they so choose. I’ve pointed out that it was seemingly fair game during the 2008 election for many on the left to badger my doctor and lawyer for proof that Trig is in fact my child. Conspiracy-minded reporters and voters had a right to ask... which they have repeatedly. But at no point – not during the campaign, and not during recent interviews – have I asked the president to produce his birth certificate or suggested that he was not born in the United States."

Now she has taken her meds again and has realised what utter crap she had said on the air. Too late, dear Sarah!

But it gets even better: Thomas Van Flein has now gone where no lawyer has gone before: on facebook!

He writes:

The Ethos of Ethics

Today at 4:11pm

When the Governor announced her decision to resign on July 3, she pointed out the then 15 frivolous ethics complaints that had been filed against her and dismissed. It was intended to explain, in part, her decision to resign as well to educate the public about the abuse of the Alaska Ethics Act through a repetitive stream of baseless partisan accusations, each one seemingly more pointless and frivolous than the next. The Governor’s message was not intended as an invitation to run off half-cocked and file more baseless ethics complaints, but not everyone understood that message—or wanted to understand. In August 2009, largely in response to the abuse of Alaska’s Ethics Act by partisan shills and low level lackeys, the Attorney General issued an opinion recommending changes to the Ethics Act ”to prevent another potential harm—abuse of the process. Some Alaskans have argued that the Ethics Act has been used inappropriately in some circumstances to politically damage the subject of the complaint.” (August 5, 2009 Attorney General Opinion). That argument was asserted by the Anchorage Daily News. “Our View: Abuse of Ethics Complaints Turns Good Law Into Bad Politics,” Anchorage Daily News, May 3, 2009. The Attorney General further recommended “another safeguard to discourage habitual complaint filers who use the Ethics Act process to harass executive branch employees. Statutory amendments could provide authority to the personnel board to decline to process further complaints filed by a person who has abused the Act in this way.” Though it is encouraging to see an impartial evaluation of the problem, it is ultimately up to the Legislature to implement any of these recommended changes. Governor Palin has been subjected to 24 ethics complaints, several lawsuits, and dozens and dozens of public information act requests, few of which raised even a scintilla of a good faith issue, and most of which were simply done to garner a headline or promote opposition research for political gain.

Recently we learned that two more ethics complaints against Governor Palin have been dismissed—complaints that were filed after the Governor announced her plans to step down. One complaint asserted that it was unethical for the state to follow its own per diem regulations and pay per diem to the Governor as set forth by law. Of course, the complainant conveniently overlooked that the Governor and her family received less per diem than they were entitled to under State law—why let such details stand in the way of an ethics complaint? The other complaint that was dismissed asserted that the Governor, through me, supposedly violated the constitution because we informed a person who falsely implied that the Governor was “under investigation” by the FBI, that such statements are defamatory. It is notable to watch those who agitate on all things Palin—locally and even across the Atlantic—as they Huff and puff falsehoods about Sarah Palin under the guise of free speech, which brings us to a teachable moment. All too often we hear about constitutional rights—as we should—but many forget about constitutional responsibilities. As citizens we have both rights and responsibilities. Though we have the right to exercise free speech, we have the responsibility to exercise that right without defaming people. I like the way our Alaska Constitution describes it: “Every person may freely speak, write, and publish on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that right.” Ak. Const. Art. I, Sec. 5. The irony of filing an ethics complaint because of a reminder about the constitutional parameters of free speech is no doubt lost on those consumed by irrationality when it comes to Sarah Palin; but one does not need an ethics law to know that positive political discourse depends on a robust debate about facts and the policy implications stemming from such facts. The nation is not helped by calumnious ad hominem attacks against Sarah Palin, matrilineal conspiracy theories, and aberrant notions of ethics.

- Thomas Van Flein, Personal Attorney for Sarah Palin

"Matrilineal conspiracy theories?" I have just learned a new word!

People "across the Atlantic?" That's us, that's Palingates!

Hello, Sarah and Mr Van Flein! (big wave across the atlantic!)


Sarah Palin:

1. You have not given birth to Trig - this is a FACT, and no facebook statement will ever be able to change that!

2. You have never provided Trig's birth certificate or any other proof that Trig is your biological son, and you never will!

3. You are finished!

This quote in Palin's email to the editor of ADN is really rich, isn't it? Given the total lack of fact-checking in her book. What is her term now - for fact-checkers? Hilarious!:

I would ask again, though, that you check facts before running any stories, and request that you get input from administration officials when writing about issues that involve state government.

Further, I believe the public's desire is to have confidence that you have fact-checked your columnists' pieces. It certainly seems to many of us that they go unchecked. I respect that editorial page content is for opinion, but find it tough to respect any practice that allows for unsubstantiated allegations. With such limited amounts of hard news in your recently streamlined paper, I believe it's more important than ever to make sure what you print is truthful and accurate.

I'm expressing a quite simple and fundamental desire for accuracy in your paper. But having said that, I again acknowledge that it is your paper and you own the ink, and we evidently are agreeing to disagree on the need for the corrections/clarifications I requested.

A few comments about the Facebook rant from the estimable Van Flein of the famed ClappTrap firm in Anchorage.

"as they Huff and puff falsehoods about Sarah Palin under the guise of free speech, which brings us to a teachable moment."

Hey, Arianna, did you see that from the clever young Mr. Van Flein "Huff and puff". God, he's smart, that's why Sarah pays him those big bucks.

And then he goes on to lecture the nation about the Constitution. "All too often we hear about constitutional rights—as we should—but many forget about constitutional responsibilities."

Oh please, instead of spouting claptrap about the U.S. Constitution, please sit in your office and read some U.S. Supreme Court cases and then give crib notes about them to Sarah (Governor for Life) Palin. You so, just in case some perky newscaster ever asks her again about what decisions she disagrees with.

Or better yet, go crawl under a rock.

P.S. Is the esteemed ClappTrap firm also representing the good doctor Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, non ob-gyn birther of high risk infants in community hospitals without NICU's? (I did read on your website Mr. Van Flein that you specialize in "professional liability."

Given Mr. Van Flien's legal speciality, I ask him to address this in his next Facebook posting:

1. Would it be a good idea for a doctor who is not an obstetrician to deliver a high risk infant with a not insignificant possibility of being born with a heart defect?
2. Would the doctor need to disclose to her malpractice carrier that she undertakes such work outside of her speciality?
3. Would it be a good idea for a family doctor who is not an obstetrician to deliver a high risk infant in a small community hospital without a neonatal intensive care unit?

Looking forward to your answers in your next Facebook posting.

longtime reader said...

The difference between Obama's birth certificate and Trig's birth certificate is that the doctor who delivered Trig (and therefore signed the birth certificate) is alive and well and practicing in the state of Alaska.

Let's just ASK HER if she delivered him!

Dr. Cathy Baldwin Johnson, are you ready for your closeup? And by closeup I mean, are you prepared to lie for Sarah Palin.

Logic tells me if the good doctor was willing to lie, she would have by now.

Think how far a press conference would have gone a year ago to put all these "matrilineal conspiracy theories" to rest?

Van Flein of ClappTrap & Van Putz said...

I'm sorry, let me edit my last question to young Mr. Van Flein.

Would it be a good idea for a doctor who is not an obstetrician to deliver a known high risk infant?

Because we all know from what Sarah told us that she knew she would be giving birth to a high risk infant. In fact, that's why she had the amnio (and risked a miscarriage), so she could prepare herself. So, of course, Dr. Baldwin-Johnson knew Sarah would be delivering a high risk infant.

Why you are noodling that, Mr. Van Flein (the expert in professional liability) also let us know whether it would be advisable for a family doctor practicing outside of her specialty to tell a woman whose water had broken to get on a plane and fly 20 hours back to Alaska to give birth, and be sure, to bypass any hospital with a NICU?

Are these two statements the same?

1. I don’t know if I would have to bother to make it an issue ’cause I think there are enough members of the electorate who still want answers.

2. She replied that it wouldn't be necessary to make it an issue because the electorate can do so if they choose.

The first statement is Palin's recorded exact words. The second is C4P's version of what she said.
I don't hear her saying "they can do so if they choose"

AND of course they do not post her "actual" radio interview (which is all over the place) ... they ALWAYS post everything Palin is ever involved in. Why aren't they posting the interview so people can hear her words for themselves? Sounds like a little mind control. OH don't bother listening to what she said (even though I always post everything she ever is involved in for your listening/viewing pleasure) .. because "I" already listened to her voice for you. I will tell you what she said...
I do believe some of the PeeLanders do half heartily think..and hopefully will go out into the real world (read something other than this shrine) and hear for themselves.

Do we know for CERTAIN that CBJ said, in the interview with ADN, that she "couldn't confirm" that she delivered Trig?

Anonymous said...

A little off topic but one that has been mentioned
Sarah's lack of saying Jesus... only referring to God and Her Faith... never saying Jesus

Poor Billy Graham... on his page devoted to his interview with her he says:
NOVEMBER 25, 2009
This first interview segment shows Sarah Palin discussing how she came to know Jesus Christ as her Savior.

HE tries to bring Jesus into the mix.. I mean Jesus it the basis for Christianity.. ain't it?
But then all she goes on to say is .. her "faith" and does say "Christ" ONCE .. not Jesus Christ
She can't utter his name! Not even in a super churchy interview

Mr. Graham tried to make this an inspirational interview .. probably to get others to want to be "born again" ... but Sarah just slaps off "God" political talking points..

Nothing in there talks about how Jesus changed her or when she accepted him into her heart.. all the typical lingo... just blabs about how God helps her get through challenges... Might as well be talking about some New Age religion (no offense to new agers)|9506|sarah%20palin||C||4798348657

The link references the Huffington Post because it was an Ad by Google.... while reading the Birther story I saw the bold head line
Sarah Palin discusses her relationship with Jesus Christ!

I thought maybe she did... but nope.. just God this and that no Jesus

Aussie Blue Sky said...

Anon 11:53, it's my impression that if you're a fundamentalist Christian living off the Old Testament, Jesus doesn't really have a place there. The Old Testament is all about (besides begetting to a ripe old age) a lot of smiting of enemies ... and more smiting of enemies ... and more smiting ...

I'm not sure what the rules and regulations in Alaska are concerning adoption and birth certificates. When my ex-foster child was adopted by his grandmother, a new birth certificate was issued. It listed her as his mother with all the other information the same as before, i.e. doctor's name, time and date of birth. The only thing that gave it away as an adoption was the date of issuance on the certificate. It was 12 years after the date of birth. Does anyone know if Alaska's birth certificates show the date of issuance in the case of adoption as being different than date of birth?

Anon above...I think Sarah and Todd are probably listed as parents on the BC, but that does not change the fact that Trig was most likely not born on April 18, 2008. The date of birth cannot be changed, and I think this is the problem for Sarah.

Sarah said specifically in the Barbara Walters interview that Trig will go to kindergarten in 2012, which would make him only 4.5, not 5 which is the required age in Alaska. Why did she say that? Gotta wonder?

Pay no attention to Van Flea and Jesse Corny, his facebook rant and their postings are meant to distract...

Please provide us the authorization to examine the original birth certificate (not a copy), as was done in President Obama's case (since she has "equated" the two cases.)

I want to put in a plug for more people to protest Sarah with signs -- preferably with an enlarged photo (like the March 14 one) showing the non-pregnant Sarah. This story is finally being covered, and it is a great opportunity to SHOW the evidence that Sarah was not pregnant. Wouldn't it be great to have a line of posters showing each of the non-pregnant photos?

I have been reading IM, Palingates, and Bree Palin since shortly after SP was chosen as the VP nominee. I went from being highly skeptical about the faked pregnancy to completely convinced in the past year. But I have also found out the faked preg is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the aggregation of psychoses in this woman. She would be a case study for some Psychology journal.

I thought I had no stomach for exposing the faked preg part of this. I thought it was a family's personal business. Loaded dynamite. Still is. But I just find it very hard to have any sympathy for this person or her surrounding enablers (except for the younger children--heaven help them!)

Politico headline: Palin Walks Back Remarks


But the most striking evidence of her son’s impact has been Palin’s book tour promoting her memoir “Going Rogue.” As she descends from her tour bus or private jet to meet her fans, 19-month-old Trig has been a conspicuous presence — and generated a huge response. “There’s a lot of people who come through the line to see Trig instead of to see her,” says Jason Recher, a campaign aide who remained close to Palin and is now accompanying her on her book tour.

A few days ago Parnell appointed the founding partner of Van Fleabags law firm (holy roller Craig Stowers who actually put bible verses in his application to the judicial council) to our Supreme Court. I guess Fleabag is feeling pretty full of himself right now.

He neglects to mention (among LOTS of other things) that Palin had to pay the state BACK per diems she had charged for living in Wasilla due to an ETHICS complaint that WAS meritorious. Then of course in true Palin style, she found herself in a little back tax trouble because she failed to pay taxes on that income.

He's all about deception in the name of God. Unfortunately his mentor is now on our Supreme Court. It may be time to move to a warmer climate

Is this another case of Sarah and TMI (too much information)? She appears to be opening the door and hundreds are waiting for the answer.

One thought that crossed my mind when I read the lawyer's letter...he is pointing out the maternal lineage.

Could Sarah's eggs have been used for a surrogate to bear the baby? Good old productive Sarah would never have wanted anyone to know that she couldn't have another child. Surrogate mother gave birth earlier than expected and therefore the rush trip home from Texas.

She's still toast but IMO she did this on purpose. Greta mentioned, then $P did earlier in the week & then this. Seems like purposely "getting in front of the story" to me and a conscious effort to conflate us with the birthers to confuse things & discredit us.

Thanks to all the AK bloggers who have kept at this !

Anonymous said...

I agree- she's got some kind of pseudo birth certificate and she's setting it up so reluctantly, she'll be forced to produce it.

A birth certificate isn't enough at this point. If she'd done it right after Trig was born- and we know Alaska had rumors- that would have been okay. But we know that adoptive parents can have their names placed on a birth certificate, and she's also had time to gin up a good-quality faked one. Again, remember, she has that church, right? Somebody has a notary stamp they can use. No: only DNA evidence will prove it, and that's going to create a whole new level of shriekage from Sarah and her bots.

Somebody posted that Sarah wants to make the most money with the least work possible. I actually don't have a problem with this. It's just that she thinks political office is a place where you can make money without work, and then that affects me. Let her become a preacher... then her followers can happily buy her dvd sermons and donate all they want,and spend $250 for an autographed Bible from her. They're sucker enough, and frankly I think if they're stupid enough to be willing, she might as well fleece them.


NakedTruth said...

I agree she could possibly have a fake BC now but it still makes me wonder why she just didn't include a copy in her book. Probably would have boosted her sales - maybe. With that said, it's possible also that she does not have any kind of BC for Trig. If so, the birthdate is not 4/18/08 or it does not show her and Todd to be the parents. It's something wrong with that BC. She hasn't shown it for a reason.

Also still noticing that Sarah can't give our President the respect he deserves by calling him President Obama. This woman just can't get past getting beat by a black man. Sarah Palin is a racist and at this point it's nothing she can do or say that will change my mind.

Archivist said...

Ivyfree is correct: a BC isn't enough, not for me anyway.

The way I look at it is that if Trig/Trick is not hers, her efforts to pull off this hoax would INCLUDE a faked Birth Certificate. That means that there are people 'complicit' in the hoax, because she couldn't have pulled it off alone.

Those people have a lot to lose. Not only career-wise, but this would entail fraudulent Governement records. They will and MUST stick together, or the whole thing implodes, taking them all down with Sarah.

When the ADN tried to put the story to rest, Sarah didn't co-operate, and her Dr had an attorney present.

The whole story is yet to come.

Meanwhile, back at the FB ranch, her palinbots are confused as to WHAT to make of Sarah's comment in a note saying that the Obama BC thing is a 'conspiracy' .. they want SO BADLY to believe it, but now Sarah has gone on record calling it a conspiracy JUST LIKE the one about Trick. Or Trig. Whatever!!!

When Sarah speaks, I hear the famous quote: Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive

So, be careful what you wish for, the IS a Birth Certificate in the wings .... no doubt about that!

Anonymous said...

I think she and her people are making a calculation that if she can just distract the world with a fake Trig birth certificate, it will take attention away from the possibility that either she has had abortions, or that her son and daughters have been involved in them. These people are master manipulators. I think folks need to keep on both tracks, the Trig track and that Sarah/insurance form white-out well as the Bristol track, the Keith Johnston track, the Track track - so many possibilities, so little time! Don't fall into her traps. She didn't get this far by being completely clueless.

Liz I. said...

Sarah Palin is skilled at shaping her lies. She is the queen of misdirection an obfuscation.

Thus, Palin says, referring to the f"reaky conspiracy theories", that they allege "Trig isn't my real son" AND that she has "proved" "he's [my] kid".

The distinctions she's making are very deliberate ones. She never says, "I give birth to Trig." She says, instead, "Trig is my son" or "Trig is my kid".

Trig may be Palin's son. But all the evidence supports that Palin didn't give birth to Trig. I hope we will continue pushing back on this important distinction.

Anonymous said...

I can't believe she went on record with such a statement. It really is an open call for people to question her about Trig, isn't it?

''PALIN: I think it’s a fair question just like I think past associations and past voting records. All of that is fair game. You know, I’ve got to tell you too, I think our campaign, the McCain-Palin campaign didn’t do a good enough job in that area. We didn’t call out Obama and some of his associates on their records and what their beliefs were, and perhaps what their future plans were, and I don’t think that was fair to voters...''

Great, I'm very glad she made that statement. Now, someone please call her out on Todd's membership in the Alaska Independence Party. The one she tried to get Schmidt to lie about so voters wouldn't know.

I'm not so sure she has a birth certificate. She has a problem saying things she shouldn't say. Remember on Oprah when she said she didn't want to talk about Levi, but then she went on to say nasty things about him?

There's a good chance it was a slip up on her part and Lawyer Tom was trying to fix it (along with fixing the fact that she's willing to question the citizenship of the Pres.).

NakedTruth said...

I know many of you keep saying that there is probably a fake birth certificate out there that Sarah will present soon. My only problem with the fake birth certificate is why would it take so long for them to get one? And if they have had it for awhile why present it now? I am going in the direction that there is no fake BC. My belief is that Levi and Bristol never gave Sarah and Todd the right to adopt Trig. They only allowed them to claim him. Remember Levi's story in Vanity Fair about Sarah wanting to adopt the "baby" but he and Bristol said no. I think he was talking about Trig not Tripp. Also keep in mind Sherry cried on Tyra and said that Bristol "knew how much that baby meant to me". I found this emotional display curious because it made me feel that Sherry had experienced a loss of another baby and was really looking forward to Tripp - could that have been Trig? Also, remember how the Johnstons (Levi included) claimed to be so very excited to hear that Bristol was pregnant with Tripp. Why - why would they be happy about two teenage kids who couldn't take care of themselves having a baby. Just didn't make sense to me. And then we've got Sarah's financial statements with all the discrepancies or lack of detail related to her dependents. Remember in 2007 she named her dependent kids but for 2008 she decided not to. I wonder why?

Archivist said...

Naked Truth asks: My only problem with the fake birth certificate is why would it take so long for them to get one? And if they have had it for awhile why present it now?

I think it's because as long as that BC is not 'used officially' then it's not on the record; those complicit can still back out .. but once that document surfaces, the fraud is in play.

It's like a drunk walking toward his car, intending to drive. BUT.. a cop pulls up, and the drunk doesn't actually get in the car; until the drunk gets in the car and starts the ignition, he isn't a drunk driver. (lame example, but I am in a hurry, and you get my drift)

I notice that the main-stream media is following the shiny metal object. Palin says "birth certificate" and sure enough, not so much as a squib of discussion about "getting on airplane after amniotic fluid leak". The media is terrified of discussing obstetric details. There is no doctor that will say "sure, fly away, get the leak check whenever, it's just a baby after all".

Palin tells the lie about the wild ride on the record. And main-stream media coddles her like a baby.

Thanks, that makes sense. They already have the fake BC but just don't want to present it until they just have to. Of course, the hesitation to present it is just that - because it's fake.

I truly think that the lone protester with the sign about trig....wait I'm thinking that it might all be part of testing how the public react about Trig not being her son, if it can be relegated to a conspiracy theory like Obama's BC, then she has a chance in 2012.

She may want to debate that now. The whole book tour is testing ground for a campaign. And the testing is not being thought out by Sarah but by her manipulators.

But she sounded angry and unhinged, so maybe she and Van Flein just want to discourage or intimidate protesters from carrying signs the says "Sarah is NOT the birth mother of Trig Palin".

Anonymous said...

I would like to take the Trig birth issue one step farther, to its logical conclusion. I believe that the real reason the rightie puppet-masters DELIBERATELY created an issue about Obama's legitimacy/citizenship was to get out in front of the then already-known-in-Alaska issues surrounding Trig's birth. A good offense is the best defense, that's the way it's always played in high-level Republican politics. Think it through: they CREATED the issue of BO's illegitimacy to detract attention away from their own KNOWN illegitimacy issues.

I think that she never made a fake birth certificate because she assumed she'd never need one.

but it's getting hot in the kitchen... pressure is on, now that the msm has been linking to the expose sarah blogs. if the talk continues, and the heat keeps getting turned up, I bet she'll be desperate enough to make one.

my guess is that a matsu hospital certification stamp has recently gone missing. perhaps it is on the roof?

Breakthrough!!! MSNBC (Nora ODonnell) just did a story on a woman giving birth today on a SW jet, out of Chgo. The birth was attended by a passenger doctor and the airlines Medical Director on the radio. Nora had a male commentator on with her who then picked up the discussion by stating that this story was why so many had questioned why Sarah Palin would have gotten on a plane so close to giving birth. He then asked Nora if she had any problems with transportation before having her children. Nora responded no, no problems with planes, trains or automobiles. Timed around 1:25 pm CST.

Archivist1000 said...

emrysa: there HAS to be a birth certificate. It is needed for many things in life, especially for a child who will require government funded programs all his life.

The question is: Is the birth certificate being used real or fake? Maybe there IS a real one, that is used for purposes where personal information is confidential (such a govt stuff) and she felt pretty safe about that, thinking that in years to come, it wouldn't matter anyway.

Then, she gets herself on a National stage, where these things start to matter, and she is stuck with the story she made up.


Gryphen said the KEY to this was the DATE of Trig's birth ... that means there is a DATE in play here, that supports/debunks the HOAX ... and a DATE is crucial to a Birth Certificate.

All information on a BC must be true. ALL OF IT.

So Sarah is stuck, if she lied about ANY of that info, and so are those who signed off on it.

However, if there is a TRUE BC with all the correct info, then she is STILL stuck if she has been lying about the details but not the BC..

I don't know what is a lie or the facts, but it does seem that there is an OFFICIAL lie somewhere, if not a total HOAX.

Lies of Omission: said...

Lies of Omission:

To lie by omission is to remain silent and thereby withhold from someone else a vital piece (or pieces) of information. The silence is deceptive in that it gives a false impression to the person from whom the information was withheld. It subverts the truth; it is a way to manipulate someone into altering their behavior to suit the desire of the person who intentionally withheld the vital information; and, most importantly, it's a gross violation of another person's right of self-determination.

The Biggest Lie About Lies -- A Lie of Omission Is Not a Lie!

A lie of omission is the most insidious, most pervasive, and most common lie on the entire planet. Commonly, those who use this type of lie, have conned themselves into believing that to intentionally remain silent when ethical behavior calls for one to speak up is not a lie at all. In spite of overwhelming evidence that their silence deceives, misleads, and often causes untold grief and misery, they refuse to speak the truth.

With Alaskan B.C. the adopted child goes by the adoptees name as parents. So Todd and Sarah would be named as parents, if indeed they adopted him.

If Sarah did deliver him earlier in December or January, much premature, and not expected to live, the birth date would be on that certificate.

Or will she use white out again, or a forger?

So VanFlea, seems to me you got yourself one of them there gifter clients... It is best financially, that you allow her to be a birther... More $$$$$ for you!

Nice copy and paste job with the former Govenor "It" facebook page... Not to be tacky or anything, but how much do you charge for that?

Well you really don't have to answer... However it does have to be great to have such a client like Sarah Palin ! Now if you could get Chuck Heath on a retainer! Wow that would be real cheesy for you law firm! Don't ya think?

msnbc story and link to Norah O'Donnell

And that story says that the flight stopped in Denver instead of flying on to Salt Lake City. Imagine how many people would have been put out, late at night, if Sarah's plane had to stop before it got to Seattle or Anchorage. (If you believe the wild ride story, which I don't).

It would be good for a Norah O'Donnell to take on the wild ride or any part of the mythical birth.

Todd is safely off the roof and with Sarah again!

She was joined by her husband, Todd, who drew quite a crowd himself.

"We call him 'Hottie Toddie,'" said one fan, Juliann Wood of Plano. "It was worth the wait in the cold to see him."

Todd Palin said he left Alaska on Thursday night to catch up with the book tour in Plano this morning.

Now, he said, it's time "to get some books out there and tell Sarah's story."

Frontiersman Editorial: Palin Blamed Everyone But Herself.

A Frontiersman editorial wrote, "The mayor's administration has been one of contradiction, controversy and discord. While she will blame everyone but herself, we see mostly Sarah at the center of the problem."

[Frontiersman editorial, 2/7/97]

Critical Group Called on Palin to Meet with Them, She Said they Could Fax the Questions.

In 1997,a Wasilla group called Concerned Citizens asked Palin to appear before them to answer questions, but the Frontiersman wrote, "she doesn't intend to face the hostile group to answer their questions.­" Her deputy administrator said that the group could fax the questions and she would answer them then.

[Frontiersman, 3/5/97]

Frontiersman Editorial Slammed Palin For Not Tolerating Dissent. A Frontiersman editorial wrote,
"Wasilla is led by a woman who will tolerate no one who questions her actions or her authority.­"

Re the Mercedes comment: I think people are reading too much into this.

For one thing, so what if she calls him her baby brother, or whatever ... if she was going to be 'accurate' in her description, and if he was Levi's ... she would have claimed him as a 'nephew' not a 'brother' .. it's more like ly that she considered Bristol a 'sister' (due to the relationship with Levi) so therefore that made Ticky her 'brother' too.

People say all kinds of nutty things on their FB/Myspace pages ... it's all to be taken with a grain of salt, especially with teens. My nieces refer to themselves as 'sisters' all the time, even though they are cousins.

Focusing on these kind of 'clues' diminishes the real evidence, in my opinion... and if this is going to be taken seriously, then any 'clues' must be solid, not a grasping at straws type of 'evidence'.

Just my opinion... and it's free therefore not worth much, but there it is!

Sarah can do or say whatever, and she can show a fake birth certificate. It really doesnt matter much because the truth will be coming out. Others know about Trig, don't forget that.

Sarah knows her bribe money won't hold back some forever, isn't that right Sarah

Also too, if you really knew Sarah you would know she has no intention of running for president. Its all about money for her. And that's it. As long as she keeps the dumb followers thinking she is running, they will send her money. And she will take it.

Trig is not Sarah's by birth. And I happen to know it is a fact and others know too. Sarah thinks she can trust anyone who knows but money talks. Sarah knows that better than anyone else, dontcha?

Mercedes called Trig her brother because he is either the son of her father, Kevin, or the son of her mother, Sherry.

I'm sorry, Keith - Mercedes and Levi's father. oy vey.

Thank you Charlie from AK. I would bet the hush money was given to the Johnston family, to one or more of them. And I think the people involved are truly afraid of Sarah Palin and her mafioso backers. (I don't mean mafioso literally.)

Levi and Mercede's dad is Keith, not Kevin.

Charlie, I agree that Sarah has no intention of running for President.. or probably anything else for that matter. If she did, she would be staying out of controversy and acting more 'Presidential' ... I am sure she's gotten the message from the higher ups in the Party that she doesn't have their 'support' and nobody can get past the primaries without that.

So, you're right .. she is milking this for all it's worth, her book is aimed at the fools who are easily parted with their money; that isn't people who care about issues, or ideas, or thoughtful reflections. She speaks to their level, which is a viceral kind of 'adoration' based on what they decide to see in her.

As for Tricky, lots of people come on here who say they are from Alaska and say they KNOW about Tricky/Trig ... but nobody seems willing, even ANONYMOUSLY to drop a verifiable FACT to support their claim. I am not saying you aren't from AK or that you don't KNOW .. but people outside Alaska depend on locals to come forward with something to VERIFY that would poke a 'hole in the damn' and so far, nobody does. I find that surprising.

Can you explain why? It can't be just $$$$ because Sarah isn't that rich. She is no longer powerful, either, is she?

Maybe you could log on Anonymously, and give some concrete examples of people who do KNOW something, what they KNOW and how Sarah is forcing them to keep silent.

That would be great!

sandra said...

Interesting if Todd has come to the rescue. Chuck and Sally are probably exhausted from keeping the reins on SP. I'll bet there will be no more interviews with Todd on the plane.

Anonymous said...

I think all these folks from AK are still quite scared, and none of them want to be the first ones to give the truth away. I have to say if I were standing in their shoes, I would probably be waiting for someone else to step forward first, too. Sarah Palin and the people who back her are ultra-intimidating, and that's an understatement.

Hey, Sandra, still carrying the water for the Trig Truthers?

Why don't you come out and be honest to the people at C4P? I'm sure they would love to know what you think about Trig.

My free opinion as well.

Anonymous said...

It is also asking a lot for someone to make the decision to tell the rest of us, even anonymously, who does know something. I am 100% certain that there are AK people struggling with this decision, on a daily basis. What should they do with the information they have, when should they do it, should they do anything at all, etc. This is not some minor, trifling situation. This woman is on an international stage now. A decision to bring her down would weigh heavily. I say fear is still a big reason people aren't coming forward, and I in no way judge those who are hesitating. If people on here routinely express paranoia about even anonymous postings - like this one - can you imagine what it would feel like to put something on here that is absolutely part of the truth of this explosive story? I can understand someone being worried that they could be traced. I imagine it's the back channels that are being used, instead, to these various blog authors. They, too, are weighing when and how they should bring information forward. I feel fortunate that I am truly an outsider; a bystander only, without information, only speculation.

Anonymous said...

I also agree that people are reading too much into the Mercede little brother comment, but I still think that there is proof in that picture that Trig was born earlier than Sarah says.

Anonymous said...

Wow. You're a freak, ranting about Palin's vagina.

Why don't you do something else besides sit in your moms basement and blog about a woman's vagina all day?


Why do libs tell everyone to stay out of their vagina but are obsessed with Palin's vagina?

Interesting that people are so resistant to the idea that Mercedes actually meant what she said.

Dangerous said...

Must there actually be a birth certificate? If Trig was born in a hospital, I think it's a certainty. But if Trig was born somewhere else, perhaps just at a person's home, would there necessarily be a birth certificate.

Perhaps someone knows the answer in Alaska and can share if a doctor or midwife attends a birth, are they required by law to prepare and affirm such a document and submit it to the authorities? Nobody is required to have a birth in a hospital or other setting, or even inform the government that the event has taken place. Nearly everybody does, or course, but if a person just has a child at home, attended by relatives or friends, is a birth certificate necessary?

I'm wondering this because Dr. CBJ is clearly involved in some manner of deception along with SP. Even if Dr. CBJ won't say something she knows to be patently untrue, she is not telling us everything she knows, even if she did write that letter from early Nov. 2008. That is, Dr. CBJ knows the source of baby Trig but cannot reveal that without violating patent confidentiality.

If SP was Trig's birth mother, it's hard to see why she won't confirm it publicly, or why SP would not allow her to do so. If SP isn't Trig's mother, either her confidentiality with SP or with the real birth month may apply.

This is why Jesse C. would lose a debate. SP's failure to produce documentation, and her doctor's inability to confir the basic details, are consistent with a faked pregnancy but not a real one. They are both behaving as if they have something to hide, because for most people there is nothing confidential about a publicly advertised birth.

If Jesse C. argues that SP is under no obligation to prove the issue, he immediately loses the argument (except with true believers that don't care about logic, but I guess that doesn't count to them).

I'm ready whenever you are, Jesse.
