Sarah Palin's Autobiography "Going Rogue": The "Babygate Chronicles" Revealed! - Full Excerpts! UPDATE! NEW PAGES!


Thanks to one of our readers, we now have access to a copy of "Going Rogue". So let's waste no time - and let's dive right into the parts which are particularly interesting for us.

Sarah Palin's first miscarriage - a very tragic event, but nonetheless, this event is of great importance when we consider it in relation to the rest of Sarah Palin's "babygate story". Sarah has included a very detailed description of her first miscarriage in "Going Rogue". Why has she chosen to do that? I honestly don't have an answer right now, but it could be to head off some controversial information which Sarah thinks is about to be released to the public realm sometime soon and in order to gain some sympathy for her "fate".

On pages 55-57, Sarah describes the events surrounding her first miscarriage. The Palins were "sure" that it would be another boy, and in classic Palin fashion, they decided to name him "Tad" ("a combination of Todd and Track").

She describes in great detail how at the "beginning of her second trimester", the doctor found out that the baby was not alive. Sarah writes:

I waited expectantly for the familiar shoosh-shoosh-shoosh sound of the baby's beating heart. But it didn't come. And the sonogram picture looked empty. The doctor said coldly, "There is nothing alive in there."

A few sentences later, Sarah describes how she had a D&C and then comes the strange episode with the "typo" we already discussed in the last post. Sarah reports:

When the doctor's bill arrived in our mailbox, it came with a typo. In the box describing the procedure, someone had typed "Abortion". Instead of starting over with a fresh form, they painted it over with a thin layer of Wite-Out, and retyped, "Miscarriage". For some reason it just felt like salt in the wound.

So what shall we think of all that? Is that even believable? In the discussion yesterday, several of our readers doubted that in such a bill Wite-Out would be used. It's the usual procedure to properly cross out wrong words in such documents and replace them, or to start a new form. I cannot find a final answer to this question right now, but the description of this event, just like many others parts in this book, has an "aura of uncredulity."

Read and judge for yourself. Here are the pages 55-57 (click to enlarge):


I will publish this part now, so that you the readers can already look over and discuss it. In the meantime, I will write the next part of my post.

In addition, please keep an eye on Celtic Diva's blog today - she will have some punchy things to say about Sarah Palin's view regarding the ethics complaints controversy. Having seen the material, I suspect that Celtic will have plenty to say. Celtic Diva has already published a snippet.




We have obtained the parts of "Going Rogue" in which Sarah Palin talks about her pregnancy with Trig. There is a surprise. After many months of silence and only very sporadic information regarding Sarah's pregnancy story, she now explains it all. Every little detail. Over about 10 long pages (wild ride not even included, this comes later - of course in every little detail, too). How she found out that she got pregnant with Trig, that they have always "dreamed of a big family", that Todd had always dreamed of "having another boy", how she prayed and...ehm...consulted God when there was a problem, how she

...remembered the Old Testament story of Isaac's parents. Yes Lord, I thought. My name is Sarah , but my husband isn't Abraham. His name is Todd!

The basic sequence of events:

1. Two weeks after Track took the oath as soldier in the US army on September 11, 2007, Sarah found out during an oil and gas conference in New Orleans that she was pregnant. She secretly bought a pregnancy test in New Orleans and then...

Slowly a pink image materialized on the stick. Holy geez!

The she explains that she was afraid of "the critics", her administration was making great progress and they were "on a roll", and...

I dreaded the reactions and comments from the Neanderthals who would think of this pregnancy as a distraction.

Sarah then thought that these were "less-than-ideal-circumstances" and goes on to say:

And for a split second it hit me: I'm out of town. No one knows I'm pregnant. No one would ever have known. It was a fleeting thought, a sudden understanding of why many women feel pressured to make "the problem" go away. Sad, I thought, that our society has elevated things like education and career above the gift of bringing new life into the world.

She she goes on about her pro-life values, cites the old Testament, didn't want to tell Todd on the phone, so she "concentrated instead on her role at the conference for the rest of the trip."

Sarah then mentions that she flew home, but missed Todd and only told him a few weeks later about the pregnancy - but leaves it open when exactly that was. Todd was "ecstatic". She then goes on to explain that they...

...kept the news to ourselves. We had always been private about our pregnancies.

"Later" (not specified) Sarah saw her doctor, Cathy Baldwin-Johnson at a Health Care Commission conference. Sarah then briefly explains how CBJ handled Sarah's second miscarriage, which Sarah had "between Willow and Piper". Sarah goes on to say:

At the health conference, I spotted CBJ and smiled at her when I slipped her a note on the way to the exit. I wrote: I need to come see you!

Then, about "twelve weeks along", comes the new sonogram story which Sarah first told in her speech in Wisconsin several days ago, but before that another novelty, because apparently CBJ explained to Sarah Palin even BEFORE the sonogram that she has an increased risk of Down Syndrome because of her age. But Sarah "wasn't worried", as she had "four perfectly healthy children", and goes on to say:

Besides, my sister Heather already had a special needs son, Karcher, who had autism. He was our family's angel boy. In our family, we always said God knew what he was doing when he gave Heather, the most nurturing of the Heath sisters, the child with special needs.

After lots of mentioning of "God" ("God is so good", "God would never give me anything I can't handle", "God knew me" etc.) CBJ apparently called her the next day and told her that there was a one-in-twelve chance that the baby had Down Syndrome as the result of the sonogram. Sarah then did the amnio apparently because she "wanted to be prepeared". Then, she got the results of the amnio THREE DAYS LATER, when CBJ called Sarah ("I still remember what time it was: 2:22 p.m.).

CBJ then gave Sarah the news about the Down Syndrome over the telephone, Sarah was "shocked beyond words" as a result and drove to Wasilla immediately, "gritting her teeth". Then somehow her thoughts turn to Coca-Cola commercials and The Star Spangled Banner, she asks God whether he "is listening"...and then unfortunately two pages of "Going Rogue" are missing in my collection, sorry!! So we will have to wait for the end of the story later. However, the "wild ride" will be discussed in a separate story.

So what to make of all of this?

Well - apart from the contradictions to earlier versions, which are quite easy to spot (especially to the speech in Indiana, when Sarah said that Todd didn't know of the pregnancy when the amnio was performed), there is only one thing I have to say:


None of this ever happened. Sarah cannot produce a birth certificate or any kind of medical documentation that would support her pregnancy and therefore her only chance to make her story believable is to tell it in the greatest details possible. Because anyone who is not familiar with "babygate", and this would include almost all TV-anchors, talk-show hosts, journalists and the large majority of the population could only say one thing: That it's simply IMPOSSIBLE to make all this stuff up.

However, this is exactly what happened, and that's why reading this autobiography is one of the most disturbing experiences of my life: To see an insane, mentally ill mind in action is a truly surreal experience.

Needless to say that in all of these seven pages (two pages are missing so far, unfortunately) she didn't say a peep about the birth certificate. Why should she? The real birth certificate showing the wrong birth date collides with her warped version of reality, which is pure invention.

Sarah Palin was never pregnant with Trig.

Here are the pages which are available so far (please click to enlarge).

By the way, we are sharing these documents which Palingates has obtained with other Alaskan bloggers and authors, who are already putting them to good use. It feels nice to play "Fairy Godfather" sometimes...

Is pg. 57 the deification of Bristol or setting the stage for the disappointment that is to come?

How realistic is toilet-trained at 14 months? Self-trained?

Anonymous said...

Pretty sure someone's about to come forward and say he had an affair with her...or something crazy like that so she's doing damage control. or maybe she thinks Levi knows and is short circuiting his book.

In either case, she's lying. She had an abortion. She's protected by privacy laws and so can spin any story she wants with impunity.

It would be awesome if you could the entire thing and email so i can read it ;-)

A miscarriage is also known as a "spontaneous abortion." Some people object to the term, could be why it was changed. Or not.

Just lost a comment I have typed.
Here is a repeat of it:

Many years ago I was a secretary in an Army Hospital. The diagnosis book and patient reports had the following terminology for what we commonly describe as miscarriage:
Abortion, spontaneous

I do not think that official medical language uses the lay term.

Rent a baby! I know....just another WTF moment in the life of a Palin researcher. Welcome to my world ;-)

How does she come to call an elective D&C a "miscarriage" anyway?

Isn't D&C a medical professional's term for an abortion?

Anonymous said...

A D&C is certainly often done for a spontaneous abortion, the technical term for a miscarriage. To be specific, it's done to eliminate retained products of conception. However, I question the use of white-out to change the bill. D & Cs are common enough that I don't see why the office would make that error. To me, it's more likely that the doctor scribbled "abortion" on the form and it was billed as written. D & C is actually shorter than the word "abortion" and it's quicker to write.
Why would the doctor choose to write a longer term than is necessary?

You don't change anything medical with white-out because of the implication of fraud. Our hospital won't even allow white-out to be around. To correct anything on the chart, you draw a single line through it, write "error" and initial it. To correct billing, you'd just write a new bill and shred the old one.

Maybe Todd doesn't know the circumstances?

Incidentally, if for some reason I didn't already think of Sarah as delusional, the comment that Bristol toilet-trained herself at 14 months would do it. Who does she think she's kidding? (and now we'll hear from people who insist that their kids were trained by that age- spare us, please.) To be toilet trained, a child has to be able to understand the need of using a toilet or potty, and be able to realize that s/he needs to evacuate in time to go to the bathroom and get her pants down, and do it on her own. Sarah probably was taking the child into the bathroom, parking her on the potty, and had occasional good timing. No way do I believe her story.

I would absolutely love to have some psychologist actually evaluate Sarah's public persona, as she presents herself, and all her interviews and public statements, and write it up as an opinion article. I can see where it would be time-consuming, but it would make fascinating reading. Why does she lie so much, and why such obvious lies? Does she really believe what she's saying, and does she think we do? How delusional is Sarah, anyway? And WTF what McCain thinking of?

Oh my. Other than the fact that we're seeing a train wreck in slow motion, her book is BORING. Does anyone else think it's weird that she planned to name her second son after her first son (who was still a baby)? Do people really do that?

While SP's back East (just like two Novembers ago) with another teenaged daughter who's apparently not in classes, Rumor Central at the Alaska Report reads:

I've seen kids being toilet trained at 14 months. It was back in the days when disposable diapers were not available. Toilet training at this age requires a huge investment of time and plenty of patience. Somehow this lady does not strike me as someone who would be able to pull it off.

comeonpeople said...

How come this dead fetus and evacuation of said fetus is NOT mentioned in "CBJ's letter".Since it was so focused on the kids Sarah cranked out, this oversight is blatantly suspect. I've never heard about a miscarriage before - has anyone else?
Don't get too uptight over the toilet training thing. I'm a pediatric nurse and there ARE outliers - by that I mean kids who train that early. It's usually only with a concerted effort on he part of a mom, which I don't see Sarah doing. Some kids just watch an older sib and then hop on the potty. It's unusual but certainly not impossible. In the big scheme, its also unimportant imho.

I really love her statement 'And I became a lot more attuned to other people's pain.' Awww..... now isn't that precious.

white-out? ON a medical form? Nope. Not unless she did it herself. She'd never admit to it, but if that exists, she did it. So, yes, Santa Claus, she did have an abortion.

ginny said...

Okay, wait a minute. Now I realize she is saying that the hospital wrote the words "abortion" and then "miscarriage" under the "Procedure" heading? WTH? Even if the changed a "spontaneous abortion" to a "miscarriage", neither would be listed as "Procedures"! Only an actual abortion, non-spontaneous, non-miscarriage, would be listed as a "Procedure." She is lying about something. Either she is making the whole typo thing up to drum up more sympathy for herself, or she is lying about the "procedure" performed. Notice how she describes the doctor as being "cold" and impersonal calling her baby "it." What a load of crap! I simply do not believe her description of how the doctor treated her. Again, she is making it up to garner sympathy from her fans.
My mom works in a hospital, and she says even as far back as 1990, there is no way a bill would be altered with white-out.

WV: foundit, as in, found it, found the lie!

ginny said...

Oh, and I'm not sure about the potty training thing. I tend to believe $P lies, but as someone who crawled at age 4 months, and walked at age 7 months, I'm not so sure it isn't possible that Bristol wasn't potty trained at a younger than normal age.

MimiC said...

This book makes perfect sense now. She knows that someone's going to come forward with evidence that she had an abortion, and this chapter is intended to preempt that. Wow.

Ripley said...

wait a minute.......white out and "reTYPED"? Who uses typewriter anymore???????

Sarah Palin.... YOU LIE

CC said...

Perfect sense, indeed! For all of us who thought abortion/tubal ligation after the 11th hour CBJ letter ... we were right!

Someone has this information and she either was told or got wind of it in June or early July ... hence the breathless quitter speech.

That's why the book was rushed and her handlers decided to make the most money they could for her/them before the proverbial Sh!t hits the fan.

Ah ... justice may be just around the corner. I can't wait!

The simplest explanation is that she had an abortion.

Apparently, some author that was in Alaska recently stumbled across this information (about one miscarriage) according to Gryphen.

Virginia Voter said...

CC...I was just about to say the same thing! Go back to the CBJ letter, Patrick, and Kathleeen it would be interesting to repost it right now. CBJ says explicitly that Sarah had 5 pregnancies, not 5 baby deliveries! This incident was the fifth pregnancy, NOT TRIG! Here we have it in Sarah's own words, that the fifth pregnancy was Piper.

Go back and read it...I don't care about the D&C, miscarraige vs abortion theory. This is the missing pregnancy. Here is your iceberg, run with it.

I think she had an abortion after Track and the miscarriage before Piper is probably legitimate.

I just ordered up SP's book at my local library and was surprised that they had not ordered "Going Rouge," so I requested it for purchase.

My library usually orders any reasonable request, and they will buy it. Lots of sales, and MANY readers if we all do the same. But it's not on amazon, so give them this link:

I just read an excerpt on Huff Po, and while most of us here know the score, author Jeanne Devon (AKM) does an excellent job of presenting the facts for newbies. The excerpt is super advertising for reading the whole book.

Let's give Going Rouge a helping hand. It deserves it.

Anonymous said...

CC and others commenting -

CBJ's medical letter refers to 4 deliveries and one pre-term delivery. It does not mention the word pregnancies or pregnancy.

I always thought that the use of the word delivery was highly suggestive.

Now I am intrigued by the fact that whilst Palin's deliveries were discussed in that letter her "miscarriages" were not.

Patrick and I have been aware that Sarah had a miscarriage before Piper's birth for quite some time now. It was confirmed to Patrick by Lyda Green several weeks ago.

I hope that this fact will assure you of how much care we take when releasing important information. We really do spend a lot of time agonising about what we should and shouldn't reveal. And we are doing our upmost not to be cryptic.

Look out for some important blogposts coming up soon.

How PATHETIC is Palin, very. How DESPERATE is she, very. We all know that and now the world will also too making up this kind of crap.

BTW, I am beyond pissed of Gryphen continues to name drop Patrick, Bree and AKM as though he is one of them who seeks THE TRUTH while he continues to LIE LIE LIE and cover his tracks with B*S* excuses.

Today he says over at Immoral Minority, "My understanding is that originally "Going Rogue" ripped into Levi with a vengeance."

I call B*S* again no way after reading the lunacy Palin actually got to print did she "Leave Out", Levi because she was afraid of telling lies or libel or slander. Palin as well DID NOT get her ghost writer to rearrange the entire theme or chapters of this book to exclude Levi. Palin DID NOT get ready to go to print with tales of Levi and than yank half the content. DID NOT happen.

It IS time for Gryphen to SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP before he gives all Alaskan Bloggers & others with a decent reputation exposing Palin a Hannity name.

There is a difference between the whole truth and a half truth.

It is my inderstanding that the National Enquirer had a report from a publisher insider which claimed that Palin had substantially and viciously attacked Levi Johnston in her book.

Levi's team when they discovered the fact that she had done so went on a full scale offensive and threatened to reveal the huge facts that Levi knew would hurt and destroy the family if made public.

It seems that Palin withdrew her vicious attack, possibly on the advice of Harper Collins lawyers or her own lawyer.

The lack of index in the book and the fact that the number of pages has been reduced would also allude to the fact that the book has been altered very recently.

P and I are enthusiastic Team Levi supporters but we say what we believe and do not follow them blindly.

Go Team levi - we are counting on you!

sorry for any typos....understanding not inderstanding.

BuffaloGal said...

So the sonogram happened at the beginning of the 2nd trimester, around the beginning of the 4th month. Palin makes mention that it was hard to hear the dr. call the fetus it, when afterall, they had been referring to "Tad" for the past 3 months. So they had a name by the 4th week of pregnancy?? Is my math off here ? She would've barely even KNOWN she was pregnant.

And puhleeze - that bit about "everything was right on schedule" and the babies would be born a year apart. Really? With a 2-3 month new baby and only a year of marriage after eloping and being only youngsters themselves they decided to start trying, on purpose, to have the next one ? HUMPH!

Anonymous said...

Kathleen, you're right about that phony doctor letter. When I go for a dexa scan (osteoporosis), they ask for a full reproductive history. The standard medical question is: How many pregnancies, how many births, describe other procedures.

I had a D&C. The reason was that after a missed period and the notification that I was pregnant, there came that awful spotting of blood and the sign that something wasn't going the way it should. The doctor determined that there was something wrong with fetus. In the old days, a woman would be left to expel the tissue and everything else; it could be dangerous for her. One big complication could be excessive bleeding. I was ordered to the hospital for the D&C to remove everything. I also stayed overnight. As for "trying again," the doctor advised waiting for at least one normal period to pass before trying again.

(Sorry, guys, if this kind of talk is a little graphic. Women who have had the same experience understand what we go through when our expectations are built up and suddenly come crashing down).

I offer my story in contrast to Sarah's experience, because I find it hard to believe that it was not part of her medical history. It is always part of my medical history, and there was no mistaking the name of the procedure. It was commonly performed because many women had the same experience.

Sarah really didn't have to include it in her story unless she wanted to build up more sympathy among her devoted followers- and- someone else writing a more factual book had already come across the material and she was doing damage control.

Wilbur Mercer said...

This is indeed what Audrey and some others have stumbled upon and decided not to pursue further.

It has been known about for some time in many circles.

A humane person would have walked away at this point out of respect for the woman and her family, no matter how much you despise them.

In this day and age however, with 24 hour news cycles to feed and blog page hits to maintain, this story has now become the tawdry and lurid obsession for those don't know where and when to respect boundaries.

I too never once believed the story of the Wild Ride, and I've followed it very closely since the day it was announced.

I still don't believe it, however, at this point, whatever happened is a very private matter that has now become a cottage industry for some, and big business for others.

Unless of course you can prove without a shadow of a doubt, evidence that would hold up in a court of law, such as emails, or memos, something of that sort, that James Dobson and/or his ilk were behind it, then you would have a story.

That has not been proven yet.

Now it just makes me ask, just how much more can we tear this woman and her family down ?

So keep on truckin, Patrick, Kathleen, Jesse, Shannyn, Jeanne, Linda, Phil, Steve and Dennis. And Bree.

Make this a really big issue, take this story and run with it and spread it everywhere you go.

Tell us again how much Sarah Palin lies and spreads half truths.

It's your karma, you have to live with it.

i just read BREE's and these comments: WOW, as long-time blogger, i have never witnessed such rigorous yet passionate intelligent yet humorous posting.

i believe we may all be running out of adjectives to describe SARAH and her dysfunctional existence.

SORDID comes to mind (involving ignoble actions and motives; arousing moral distaste and contempt) but even that fails to capture the malignancy that is SARAH PALIN.

i am holding on to the hope (mentioned here) that her book is self-destructive.

perhaps her unconscious is going into FREUDIAN SLIP-mode and spilling her deceptions for all to see which MIGHT lead to the collapse of her self-constructed sham.

Track and Bristol are exactly 18 months apart.
Track was born 4-20-89.
Add 3 months for breast feeding etc
Sarah becomes pregnant with “Tad” approx. 7-20-89 so “Tad” would be 1 year younger that Track. (“Our babies would be a year apart, right on schedule.”)
“Tad” pregnancy ended approx. 10-20-89 or a little later (“beginning of second trimester”)
Add about 3 months for recovery, she then becomes pregnant with Bristol approx 1-20-90
Bristol was born 10-18-90.

Maybe “Tad” had a terrible genetic defect and Sarah chose abortion. Hey, nothing wrong with that, in my opinion. However, her crazed anti-abortion supporters feel every woman should be forced to carry a fetus to term no matter how terrible the circumstances, even when the baby would suffer terribly from catastrophic brain, heart or other defects, and IF it survived, force young parents into permanent poverty to care for a severely disabled child. How many young parents have the financial resources (or insurance coverage) to provide for a severely disabled child as well as the rest of the family, especially when they need the income from both working parents just to survive? I recall Sarah wanting to claim that she and Todd did not have insurance when they were young, but Steve Schmidt talked to Todd and Todd confirmed that they had always had catastrophic insurance. I believe that was in the Vanity Fair “It Came From Wasilla”.

And we know how $arah feels about poverty, it is ok as long as it is anyone else, but not HER!

Sarah could never disclose an abortion, she must re-write history to allege a typo.

I believe that Sarah could be that delusional - there is a person with borderline personality disorder in my life...and it IS unbelievable that someone could act such a way, but they do.

But please, Patrick. tell us that you have PROOF. Please reassure me that she WILL be brought down.

I don't think she has a wide enough following to be elected to public office, but I do fear her influence.

I'm still of the mind that Sarah WAS pregnant with "Trig". EXCEPT, she aborted him. Later, she discovered she was on the short list for VP. Knowing that it could never come out that she had an abortion, she faked a pregnancy to cover for the one she aborted. I don't know who the bio mother is for Trigg. Could be just an anon. mother.

Gee, Patrick, I don't know whether to thank you or not for posting these pages - Yikes! How am I going to get through all 400 pages if just a few make me all headachey?

Anyway, first thoughts that jump out at me are (1) Track starting college (which she is more than a little vague about?) is the same as floundering around after high school and the choice for Track is between floundering and enlisting?

And (2) if not for pro-life groups out there yelling, woman would be naturally inclined to abort their babies? Even happily married women with children? I never have gotten this part of her story - how upon finding herself preggers with her 5th child, happily married and in a good financial situation, she would entertain that it would be desirable for her in some context to get an abortion? And she is implying that she would go do so if her religion didn't tell her it was wrong? WTF? That story just does not compute to me.

ProChoiceGrandma said...

The irony of Sarah’s political position of anti-abortion for any reason, is that on page 171 she wrote that she considered abortion even BEFORE she knew about Down syndrome.

Of course, we know it is all bullsh!t because she did not give birth to Trig.

Anonymous said...

It's one thing to read reports of Sarah's book. But reading the actual pages! That woman is juvenile. She has never grown past junior high school. No wonder Lynn Vincents name is not on the cover, "as told to," as they do on most ghost written or collaborative books. What a piece of crap!

I have no doubt that Sarah just started talking with a tape recorder rolling, and Lynn faithfully transcribed it, word for word, "gossip mongers," "elite six," and every other mean girl description included. The book is all about revenge, setting the record straight according to Sarah's version, and trying to make herself seem even more wonderful than she thinks she is.

When people suggested that Sarah should study, write some position papers, learn and grow since she left her job as governor, it's clear that she has done none of those things. She must lie awake thinking how she will get even with McCain's staff, Katy Couric, anonymous bloggers and everyone else. At least God is still her BFF.

What is clear is that Lynn left in all of Sarah's folksy charm, meaning terrible language. We can now say for sure that Sarah has not written the Face Book posts with actual complete sentences and good grammar. Sarah may not realize the she is her own worst enemy. The more she talks, the more she shows us how shallow she is, how thin-skinned she is, and how immature she is.

Gryphen always uses the word gruesome when saying why the story has not come out.

While there have been times I've been frustrated with Gryphen's teasers, I think that dumping on him or trying to divide the bloggers working on Babygate into "the good and the bad" is ultimately destructive.

He's one of the few bloggers that's gone out on a limb publicly, and he's faced the wrath of the crazies because of it. From what I can see (and I have a pretty good vantage point), he's gone about things as best he can. Has he gotten overexcited at some points where maybe he shouldn't have? Sure...but all of us researching this have at some point.

If this deception were easy to prove, it would be done by now. The real truth is buried deep, and everyone with an interest in revealing it and getting this woman off the political radar needs to support each other. Disagree with theories, disagree with tactics, express your own views--but to make it into one blog vs. another is a mistake.

Just my .02.

Trying to find out the truth about Sarah being Trig's mom or not is not BIG BUSINESS or a cottage industry... just a few bloggers trying to find the truth.

If Sarah had an abortion.. let this truth come out to.

Tell us again how much Sarah Palin lies and spreads half truths.

It's your karma, you have to live with it."
What about HER Karma? Do you realize she is the one to thank for the total disrespect of our President?
She has ruined many lives, with her "Karma"
Now its time the truth comes out and whiners like you worry about ruining her life??? Please.
And you are acting like you knew about this info?
Maybe you did, or didn't doesn't matter, you are choosing to judge others for reporting truths, after all Sarah is writing about this in her own book? Are you saying she did have a abortion? Not a DNC? Or is it too gruesome for you?
Patrick could you please add a number #1, #2 to the posts? I'm getting confused here, lol!

Anon, 18:25...I am leaning toward your theory in light of this new "miscarraige" revelation. One step futher....Sarah was pregnant with a baby T1 (Trig), and aborted or miscarried in the 2nd trimester upon learning of the DS. She legally adopted the baby we know today as Trig Palin, and who the bio parents are are unknown.

Think about this miscarriage news...Sarah had numerous friendly opportunites to reveal this...her right to life speeches, her interviews with Fox, etc after the VP campaign. Why didn't she? Everyone has friends and family who have is a fact of life, and would have garnered sympathy if anything. There is much more to this story.

yeah, I have to agree, Gryph is looking less and less credible in light of what he has posted, and what comments he allows to be posted, as opposed to the stories that we are getting from actual named sources as well as SP herself.

Pretty clear at this point that he is in in for himself, not the truth. I guess my eyes were opened by his self serving post yesterday and apparent glee at being indirectly "mentioned" in her book.

It's too bad too, be cause I do believe he has some knowledge and certainly sources, but in his self-aggrandizing, he misses the truth with self serving posts and claims of icebergs on the horizon, etc, etc. Sometimes the truth is more important than protecting a source, but I have finally come to believe he just doesn't have what it takes to be honest.

IMHO, time for Gryphen to make his BM or get off the commdoe.

"He's one of the few bloggers that's gone out on a limb publicly, and he's faced the wrath of the crazies because of it."

Sorry I do not agree.

Gryphen brought on the crazies himself and quite honestly he likes the attention.

It is obvious that Gryphen released that threatening letter by Palin concerning her attorney visiting him at an elementary school for sensational traffic to his site where he asks for donations he says is to "Find the truth".

It was blatant when Gryphen sent those thrid grade jabs by Email to McCain and Reihl (Both of them posted in full text) that Gryphen is as crazy as they are for any kind of recognition.

Gryphen had awesome opportunity to bring Palin into court with her threats and get her under oath but instead he dialed up Star Magazine getting himself in a byline.

Gryphen is one of the main reasons there is wild abandonment by so many (Former) posters and "Truthseekers". He is making Alaska look real bad. Tracking to Palin's house taking pictures of her private property in the bushes, I know a lot of people who before wnated to see her hang that are now supporting Palin to get all she can because of him alome.

The backlash will happen and Palin will never stand trail in public opinion the way she should all because of Gryphen's obession with her womb.

I said this a while back on some blog. I believe among the reasons Sarah never released med recs are because of the letters G and P which would be in there. G stands for GRAVIDA, or the number of times you've been pregnant. P is for PARA, the number of times you gave live birth. Whatever her real numbers are, they aren't going to match her story. These numbers are a basic part of any women's medical history. She's probably a G6 P4, but wants us to believe now she is a G7 P5 .
There's just too much work going back and whiting out all her records, so that's why they were never released as requested.
Wilber dude you crack me up. No one would care if she had two unfortnate miscarriages, so why not reveal this as part of your story - unless you have lots and lots and lots of stuff to hide???

Until then, all bets are OFF.

I NEVER forget. The secret service asked her to Shut up and back off, due to the death threats they attributed to HER and HER HATE SPEECH.

She needs to go DOWN and I don't care if she gets hurt from her own mistakes and lies in the process. She's had plenty of time to do the right thing and she REFUSED.

She is a wicked curse on this country.

"This is indeed what Audrey and some others have stumbled upon and decided not to pursue further.

It has been known about for some time in many circles.

A humane person would have walked away at this point out of respect for the woman and her family, no matter how much you despise them." -- comment above by "Wilbur Mercer"

I must take issue with this comment above, and say that a humane person would be someone who had the experience Sarah recounted and actually learned something from it, as she claimed to do. Perhaps something about how tragic pregnancy situations can happen to anyone, and that people need to be free to deal with these situations in their own way. The fact is, Sarah had an abortion, whatever she wants to call it, and yet to this day is inhumane enough to want to deny other women their legal rights to do the same. Yes, sometimes she will say "to save the life of the mother" is a good enough reason, but other than that, no reason is good enough. How convenient for her *own* abortion story to be about aborting a fetus that had already died. So of course in her case, it was okay.

In addition, I do not believe her story as told in the book. It sounds like a cover story to explain away details that might come to light. Sarah and her crowd of anti-choice zealots have themselves created the environment where many women would feel compelled to either keep silent or to embellish their own abortion stories so as to make their case a tragedy forced upon them, for fear the truth that they aborted in ANY circumstances would be used against them. It seems that the karma "Wilbur Mercer" mentioned above has actually come back to bite Sarah herself.

The whole story to me is suspect. She apparently had no symptoms that anything was wrong. Only at the appointment it turns out "sonogram picture looked empty". But why would it be "empty", as the fetus remained inside? The doctor speaking coldly and without compassion, saying "there is nothing alive in there" as well as the doctor calling the fetus "it", when the sex had not yet been identified according to Sarah herself, all sound like yet more "feel sorry for me" details at the expense of the doctor. I frankly find it hard to believe an OB-GYN would relate this in such a non-compassionate way. Then the account culminates with the "wite-out" hospital bill. It all sounds once again like Sarah is the victim, and the doctor must be one of those awful abortion types who hates fetuses and calls them all "it". Yeah, right.

The humane thing to do would be for a woman who had her own personal tragedy to leave women alone to make the reproductive decisions that are legal, and not to try to keep making it harder and harder to make these legal decisions.

I have lost a full term baby shortly after birth due to an unsurvivable birth defect. There were suspicions that things were wrong for the last couple of months, with growing concern as time went by. The final determination that the baby had such severe birth defects that they would not be survivable was detected three weeks before the date I delivered. It was a very sad and devastating time, waiting for the baby to be born, only to die shortly after. And I had nothing but compassion from the doctors and other staff. So I do understand the devastation of losing a baby. I also know that I would have done anything I could have to have helped that baby live and be well, another reason I am now even more sure Palin's entire Trig pregnancy and birth story is, as Sarah would say, "bogus".

emrysa said...

"apparently CBJ explained to Sarah Palin even BEFORE the sonogram that she has an increased risk of Down Syndrome because of her age. But Sarah "wasn't worried","

so, a woman who has had 2 previous miscarriages "wasn't worried" about the possibility of having a ds baby?

Sorry, I disagree. I'm not exactly sure what "awesome opportunity" Gryphen really had to get Palin into court, and whether he likes the attention (which I can't completely disagree with--he obviously loves needling Sarah and her crowd) isn't germane. You can love being the center of attention and still deliver the goods.

Sadly, he hasn't been able to do that, and so in retrospect he should have clamped down a little on the hints. but I do believe it's possible that he's purposely being misled by his sources. And that obviously begs the question "why?". Yet another reason why continued openness between the bloggers is key. The more minds, the better.

Somehow, though, 19:05, since you are concerned with Gryphen's preoccupation with Sarah's "womb"--I'm guessing you're not really here to be helpful.

With Tad we read about everything going according to plan, then with Trig we hear thoughts of abortion ...

What happened to the planning?

ProChoiceGrandma said...

There was NEVER any time that Sarah was pregnant with Trig. If you substitute “Bristol” in place of “I” in all of Sarah’s reminiscing, you can see where Sarah has used scattered facts describing the pregnancy of Trig. Bristol was pregnant in 2007. The only remaining mystery may be whether Bristol actually gave birth to Trig as we know him, or if Bristol had a late term abortion and thereafter they had to find a replacement for that baby, since the rumors of Bristol’s pregnancy had spread. And a Down syndrome child would be unlikely to achieve the level of intelligence to question his parentage.

However, I cannot see Sarah adopting a stranger’s DS child. I can see her adopting her grandson and faking a pregnancy to protect her political ambitions. Actually, I can’t fathom anyone FAKING a pregnancy, but Sarah’s mind works in strange ways, as we have seen. And who knows the rabid anti-abortion supporters better than Sarah herself.

Furthermore, I cannot see Bristol being so loving and nurturing to Trig unless Trig was her own child. If he was a stranger’s child there would be resentment and reluctance to take care of him.

comeonpeople said...

I know many people who have had miscarriages and the usual procedure is to do an examination of the embryo or fetus to check for chromosomal abnormalities and such. Especially in the second trimester, it would be unusual not to have some tests done to see what may hve gone wrong.

Sarah Palin was not pregnant in 2008 and is not the birth mother of Trig.

Not necessarily, but if you're a happy expectant mum thrilled with a surprise pregnancy, and then you find out the baby's dead, I would think the first thing you say is Why? What happened? Odd that this isn't discussed. It would be one more place for Sarah to emphasize how she bows to God's will.

In addition to the rest of the story, why would she claim her doctor told her over the telephone that she was pregnant with a Down Syndrome baby? That's the sort of thing you'd want to sit someone down to talk about. Either she's lying and thinks it's easier to lie about a phone call than an office visit (which might be more easily verified), or the doctor was treating Sarah differently than other patients. At least, I hope she doesn't phone all her patients with news like that.

I'm referring to the speculation that James Dobson and his Focus on the Family group was somehow behind Palin's being picked as the VP.

I think the serious lack of vetting on McCain's part proves this theory wrong, if this kind of maneuvering was going on they would have done a better job of vetting her.

THAT is the only way this story becomes credible, and at this point I'd file that idea in the Orly Taitz bin until somebody can substantially prove that it's true.

The arson fire ties neatly into this theory too, until I see definitive prove I'll just file that one away in the Taitz bin as well.

Those of you questioning why her miscarriages weren't followed up on re: why they happened.

Miscarriage is extremely common. As I recall my dr. telling me (I've had two miscarriages) - some 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. Most doctors will not do testing to figure out why until there have been two or three miscarriages in a row, with no full-term births in between.

SP is lying here, I think, but I don't believe that not finding out why she miscarried is one of the things she would be lying about.

Again, please don't feed trolls, it's just a waste of time.

Moving on:
It looks like Palin in her "memoir" has failed to provide irrefutable proof and evidence that she, in fact, was pregnant with Trig and gave birth to him in 2008.

You've heard it before but proving that you gave birth is perhaps the easiest thing a mother can do. There's obviously reams of medical documents, birth records, photos and much else to absolutely and unequivocally prove that a woman has given birth.

Yet Palin has failed to do so at every single opportunity and has failed once again to set the record straight.

The reason is clear: she is not the birth mother of Trig Palin. Period.

It is my inderstanding that the National Enquirer had a report from a publisher insider which claimed that Palin had substantially and viciously attacked Levi Johnston in her book.

Levi's team when they discovered the fact that she had done so went on a full scale offensive and threatened to reveal the huge facts that Levi knew would hurt and destroy the family if made public.

It seems that Palin withdrew her vicious attack, possibly on the advice of Harper Collins lawyers or her own lawyer.

The lack of index in the book and the fact that the number of pages has been reduced would also allude to the fact that the book has been altered very recently.

P and I are enthusiastic Team Levi supporters but we say what we believe and do not follow them blindly.

Go Team levi - we are counting on you!"""

You are counting on "Team Levi?" Two fat men and a teenage fool? I would not be holding my breath if I was you.

Honestly, I should not be surprised by this vapid line of reasoning. You really think Levi has something damaging? Then why doesn't he use this information to leverage access to his son, which, according to his accounts, he is not allowed to see?

You should stop basing your facts off tabloids. Sarah never was going to bash Levi in her book. It was made up, like most things in the National Enquirer.

1. A doctor would not say, "There is nothing alive in there." EVER.

It would be remiss if the fact checkers do not find out who that "doctor" is and talk to them. There are people that would know in Wasilla and she has ruined them. They deserve the opportunity to stand up for their reputation and truth.

It is possibly the doctor that delivered Track and/or Bristol. If the whole "wite-out" incident is a sham, she is ruining the doctor or doctors that did deliver Track and Bristol because they are indicated in her version of events.

Whatever comes of her, this book will always be part of Alaskan history and the people she indicates are smeared. If only one person knows who delivered Track and Bristol it will come out who they are one day. If that is when they are dead how can defend themselves against Palin's smear/

The trolls are going to try to stir things up as much as possible now while all of these things are coming out and we have to stick together......

One comment-as others have said, there is NO WAY any medical office would white out a word and write another one. It just doesn't happen and I have LOTS AND LOTS of medical bills and have been on both sides of this as a provider of medical services. Even in an old time doctors office, there are now computers everywhere. Plus if something has white - out over it, how do you know what it says?? You can't see it.

Her book is just terrible. It is whiny, and unbelievable! I am speechless, and can't believe the things that keep coming out. Patrick, you are right, it is surreal to see a mentally ill mind at work. She has written so many things that can be proven false with facts! ButI believe that she believes all that she has written. That is what is scary about Sarah Palin and it is why they called her a wackjob and Little House of Horrors.

Wilbur, it is our responsibility to bring out the truth because she uses this story for political purposes. She uses her children and that is just morally wrong in my opinion. As long as she does that, and as long as it appears she might run for office, then I feel it is our duty as Americans to present the truth, as we see it, based on factual information. And we can give our opinions too. What would have happened if not for everyone exposing some about her-she might very well be the VP now and that scares me to death. Why? Would you want such an unstable person in control of serious and potentially deadly international negotiations? Would you want Sarah to control the "button" for use of a nuclear bomb.

This is a woman who DOES NOT BLINK. Don't forget that and this is NOT about tearing Palin and her family down. I would prefer her children not be involved, but she has made them involved and part of her campaign platform.

Actually, Patrick has quite a bit of explaining to do, if he wishes to possess any credibility.

However, he wishes to remain a fool and a liar, instead of admitting his own deceptions. He's already ended up just like Gryphen, a total laughingstock.

Murdoch won't pull this piece of shit because he has no honor or integrity and has never cared about truth.

class action lawsuit is something he's going to have to contemplate. I am deadly serious about it, since I'm sick and tired of the right's loose play with the truth. Her autobiography is part of the 4th estate and as such impacts our political system and government. I'm not going to sit by while the right lies, revises, and spins reality to such an extent that even the right wing AP is fact-checking them.

I'm contacting a lawyer friend of mine Monday. It will be the cause of my life. A way to stand up for justice, since this creep of a person has made my life and the lives of liberals and Democrats and minorities in this country a living fucking hell with her violence inciting rhetoric.

But who would bother suing her? Not me. Finally, a big corporation to hold accountable as we couldn't hold Old Man POW accountable. Deep Pockets Murdoch. Empty your wallet, big daddy.

This is getting funnier by the minute-- almost better than reading the comments at Wonkette about SP. Anyhow-- first SP gives us the miscarriage (abortion?) information, then the possible Brad-Tad connection. I can't wait to see what other "secrets" she reveals in print-- she is so transparent. Maybe HC had better recall that book - it's gonna be a "Killa in Wasilla !"

Then, if that isn't funny enough, we have SP's operatives here, absolutely hysterical, trying to goad Patrick (Regina and Kathleen ) into revealing what they know by insulting them. Hilarious, try that with an eight year old-- not on us! Then all these absolutely impotent legal- type threats-- Copyright Law ho ho-- OK now, what copyright has SP violated ??

I am truly entertained for the first time by SP and her lackeys!

Amniocentesis - This procedure is used to collect amniotic fluid, the liquid that is in the womb. It's performed in the doctor's office or in the hospital on an "out-patient" basis. A needle is inserted through the mother's abdominal wall into the uterus, using ultrasound to guide the needle. Approximately one ounce of fluid is taken for testing. This fluid contains fetal cells that can be examined for chromosome tests. It takes about 2 weeks to determine if the fetus has Down syndrome or not.

Amniocentesis is usually carried out between the 14th and 18th week of pregnancy; some doctors may do them as early as the 13th week. Side effects to the mother include cramping, bleeding, infection and leaking of amniotic fluid afterwards. There is a slight increase in the risk of miscarriage: the normal rate of miscarriage at this time of pregnancy is 2 to 3%, and amniocentesis increases that risk by an additional 1/2 to 1%. Amniocentesis is not recommended before the 14th week of pregnancy due to a higher risk of complications and loss of pregnancy.

There could be a problem distinquishing the fetus' heartbeat from the mother's heartbeat. In the early 1990s, was ultrasound tech. far enough along that someone could say "there's nothing alive in there?" Even if so, does a 12-week old fetus move always move? Never sleep?

I'm not a lawyer, but if you take copyrighted material and publish it on your blog, that seems rather suspicious to me.

The good bloggers here scanned and posted actual pages from a book that has not been released yet, which means that the book was not lawfully gained, in addition to being copied illegally. You don't think Palin could get this blog to take down these pages? They probably won't given how obscure this place is, but don't Regina and Patrick have any respect for another person's intellectual property? No, they do not.

This isn't an excerpt. This is outright thievery. Yet what should I expect from miscreants such as yourselves?

What was the timing of Troopergate...around the time someone would have gotten pregnant? So Blue you live in Giddings? Lots of tidbits coming out of Giddings.

I don't know who's more hypocritical, the C4Pee'rs or some of the folks commenting on here today.

Let me get this straight, if you have an opinion or feel differently than the majority then you're a concern troll ?

I'm no lawyer so I'm not even going to speculate on his concerns, but he may have a valid point.

Or he may not, we'll see.

If there was an issue I'm sure the publisher would be all over it. The truth of the matter is though, it's free publicity that's certainly not going to eat into sales, so why stop it ?

That's totally a call of the publisher, one that this blogger and others probably won't get.

You know, I don't like this woman's politics any more than the next guy, I didn't vote for her for Governor and I certainly didn't vote for her for VP.

But there just comes a time when enough is enough.

If Sarah Palin announced today that she has cancer and only has 30 days to live, I wonder just how many of you would stand up and cheer for that bit of good news.

I've been following politics in Alaska for a long, long time, I've probably forgotten more than what Jesse, Jeanne, Shannyn and Linda know, and trust me, I know a lot.

Anonymous said...

(Hope this doesn't double post)

I've been a Trig Truther ever since Audrey started her blog, so I say this in NO WAY to explain anything about She Who Shall Not Be Named, but the terminology discussions are getting old. Here it is, from a woman who has 4 beautiful children, and has suffered 9 miscarriages, one of which was in the 2nd trimester, at 20 weeks:

spontaneous abortion = miscarriage, usually discovered by spotting or bleeding occuring in the first trimester

missed abortion = miscarriage, but usually discovered by ultrasound because no spotting or bleeding has occured and the cervix remains closed.

A D & C could be performed for either of the above. Sometimes, even after letting "nature take its course," to make sure there is no remaining tissue to become infected (in a spontaneous abortion), or to remove the fetus and other tissue/material in a missed abortion.

A D & E is performed when the baby has died, but is too large to be passed naturally. Sometimes doctors induce labor and deliver the baby, other times (like if they can tell it's been some time since the baby died and things have "broken down.")

Both of these procedures are usually performed under general anesthesia, and these days they are usually outpatient procedures. Having endured both of them, I can tell you that NEITHER is a piece of cake.

I will say this, however, after nine losses, I have NEVER received a bill that said "miscarriage." You get a bill or a notice that the insurance company has paid the doctor using the name of the procedure (D & C, D & E, etc.). Only in my chart does it indicate WHY the procedure was necessary. I'm sure the doctor provides that info to the insurance company, but it has not appeared on paperwork sent to the patient.

And Anon at 00:02, of course the baby sleeps. But it still has a heartbeat. And is usually moving in some respect, because it's floating around in fluid, not frozen like in an ice cube. So, by 9-10 weeks or so, when the tech hooks up the u/s gear, and you look up at the screen and see complete stillness, that's a pretty good indication that something's gone wrong. And then it gets terribly sad.

But I would imagine when you're having to invent all these kinds of details, it gets sketchy in there as to who said what "doctor v tech," or what week it happened (12 or maybe 13, give or take), or what you've already told whom.

Because as far as I can tell, none of the above information would apply when you've strapped on an empathy belly. Or Spongebob. Just sayin. ;)

Hanson update said...

Can someone in Alaska further explore this rumor and confusion?

Valley Polaris is the name of a business owned by Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's husband Todd and his one-time business partner, Brad Hanson. The dealership was located in Wasilla, Alaska.
Bonded in sports.

From what I can tell the Hanson affair in question was around 1996. In 2008 Brad Hanson states that he and Todd are still friends. Marilyn Bowden is related to Carolyn Hanson. She was told there was an affair and she was told to deny that. The same for Carolyn Hanson's brother, Craig Bratton.

Brad Hanson is divisive, explosive and depised. They had to remove articles where he was mentioned because of the rancor.
Please remove the story wrote on Feb 11, 2008 11:32 AM:
" This secret Hanson hater club has gone on long enough. "

The ADN also removes articles related to Hanson

The following was typical of comments form coach Hanson dissenters:
Tsk, tsk wrote on Jan 31, 2008 6:55 PM:
"Once again, let's get back to the guy's behavior. It was unacceptable and if any teacher or one of your coworkers at any place of employment acted the way Hanson did, they'd be out of a job. It's unacceptable but the Palmer koolaid drinkers find it okay as long as they're winning. They're simply promoting another generation of kids who grow up to coach kids bully style with foul language and poor behavior.

Also the "breeder comments were removed.
"When you can’t convert any one else, just “breed” your own believers."
“She is Awesome and we’re so glad Alaska breeds AWESOME and FANTASTIC conservatives that we desperately need to change Washington.”

As far as I can tell Brad Hanson is still with the city of Palmer, he is still friends with the Palins and he is a coach in Palmer.

I have never seen anything to back up that Willow actually goes to school at Colony. She is not as hidden as Bristol but there is a cloak of mystery. It is claimed that she does go to Colony, whether or not she attends classes or only has a coach like Bristol (another coach Hanson) I don't know. If she doesn't actually go to school, that explains why she is not in school now and on a book tour.

Without a doubt her attire is unusual for the daughter of someone trying to sell a book on Oprah. She looks like she wants to be home in Alaska.

Anonymous said...

Hi again -- I'm that anonymous person who prefers to lurk.

Just want to jump in here to say that, yes, an ObGyn would say there's nothing alive in there: when there's a blighted ovum -- there never was a baby; it's just an egg that sends signals similar to a baby. The mother's body prepares for a baby; the mother feels pregnant, misses her period, etc., but nothing develops. They usually do end ~14, 15, 16 weeks -- barely into the 2nd trimester. I had one myself. I also needed a D&C, aka an abortion.
It's quite likely a statement of benefits or a bill would say elective abortion or D&C, if that is indeed what happened to her. There is no way it would be whited out though. That is what it's called. If she didn't like it, tough. Please note: I'm not saying I have any idea why Sarah had an abortion; it could have been a blighted ovum. It could have been she didn't feel financially ready for a second child. It could have been for any number of reasons. It is honestly none of my business why she did, or whether she did, except that she has chosen to make it my business by (1) publishing her supposed experience, and (2) sticking her nose into all American women's Ob offices.
It's one of the things that ticks me off so much about Stupak and other anti choice measures. Ending an ectopic pregnancy is also done via abortion. Ending a miscarriage that isn't progressing is also done via abortion.
Back to lurking. ;)

Wilbur Mercer said...

From the Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Wiki :

Mercerism is a prominent religious/philosophical movement on Earth. The movement is based on the legend of Wilbur Mercer, a man who lived before the war. Adherents of Mercerism grip the handles of an electrically powered empathy box, while viewing a monitor which displays patterns that are meaningless until the handles are gripped. After a short interval the user's senses are transported to the world of Wilbur Mercer, where they inhabit his mind in an experience shared with any other people using an empathy box at that moment.

Mercerism blends the concept of a life-death-rebirth deity with the values of unity and empathy. According to legend, Mercer had the power to revive dead animals, but local officials used radioactive cobalt to nullify the part of his brain where the ability originated. This forced Mercer into the "tomb world." He strives to reverse the decay of the tomb world and ascend back to Earth by climbing an enormous hill. His adversaries throw rocks at him along the way (inflicting actual physical injuries on the adherents "fused" with Mercer), until he reaches the top, when the cycle starts again, much like the plight of Sisyphus.

Mercer's tomb world is likely a reference to Swiss psychiatrist Ludwig Binswanger and his account of Ellen West's personal experiences of anorexia nervosa in which she conceives of the material world as being like a tomb world.[4]

As long as she sticks her beak in national politics, including her inane facebook posts on health care, etc, she's fair game. I have two daughters and there's no way I want them to live in Sarah Palin's version of America.

Sure, I can muster up sympathy for Sarah Palin, especially now that she's imploding (as I said, much more sympathy than she managed to muster up when some SOB caller Lyda Green a "cancer"). But I feel much more sorry for Sarah's children. She's brought all of this on herself and her family and continues to do so.
