Rick Santorum Progresses the War Against Women - PLUS: Sarah Palin Newsweek Article - The Myth of Trig, and the Lies of Sarah Palin

By Kathleen

In a barely disguised contempt for the intelligence of women, Rick Santorum, who finished last in the 2012 Nevada caucus yesterday, repeated the anti choice lie that abortion causes cancer. This is a blatant attack by Santorum on the organisation of Planned Parenthood and a good old boy pat on the back for Komen. 

In an interview with Fox News Sunday Santorum whined:

"I don't believe breast cancer research is advanced by funding an organization that does abortions where you've seen ties to cancer and abortions."





As the Huffington Post article points out a 2007 study revealed that there is no link between breast cancer and abortion and Planned Parenthood spends a mere 3 percent of its funds on abortion services whilst 16 per cent is allocated for cancer screening and prevention. Obviously Santorum is a member of the school of thought that believes if you repeat a lie often enough it will soon become true.

Sarah Palin and the Myth of Trig

Several weeks after Sarah Palin sounded off against Newsweek Magazine and Andrew Sullivan in the following tweet:

she has (ghost) written an article for Newsweek in which she portrays herself as a dutiful mother who has "periodically put her family first" and is worried about Trig's "health and social challenges" that he may face.
 


In the article Palin wants people to believe that she and Todd, like other parents who have to care for Special Needs children, understand the "unique" challenges and rewards of caring for such a child. The reality as the above photo proves is somewhat different. Palin had no hesitation whatsover in dragging her clearly just wakened and undressed child then parading him in front of flashing cameras and a loud crowd. Where is her concern for Trig in this picture and what sacrifices has Palin really made on behalf of her family? Especially for her children who were often employed as shields from the press with their pesky questions. Her children who went on to grow up considering themselves as celebrities or just that so much better than others and who have no hesitation to use homophobic slurs against their critics.


It's also a pity that Palin used the worn out "Trig applauds the world" meme again as it is one that she has repeated many times already.

Trig is almost 4 years old now, and every morning when he wakes up, he pulls himself up, rubs the sleep out of his eyes, looks around, and then starts applauding! He welcomes each day with thunderous applause and laughter. He looks around at creation and claps as if to say, “OK, world, what do you have for me today?”

The fact that she yet again churns out the same anecdote about him prove to me that she is not that involved in his life. Surely if she spent more time with him she would have many other stories to relate rather than an observation made way back in May 2011 and which now appears to be part of the Trig story. The story as Palin tells it.

And that is what this article is. This is Palin's telling of the Trig myth. This is her response to those of us who do not accept that she gave birth to Trig because the evidence and facts suggest otherwise. It's easy Sarah. Release the medical records and the birth certificate proving that you are Trig's mother and we can start talking from there.

The Lies of Sarah Palin - Her faked pregnancy:

I left a shorter version of the following comment on Huffington Post - hopefully, it will be approved:

In this new Newsweek article, Sarah Palin talks about her "doctor's appointments." Fact is, the Palin's official schedule from late 2007/early 2008 doesn't show ANY doctor appointments (the schedule was released already in 2009 through a FOIA request). In addition, Sarah Palin's doctor Cathy Bandwin-Johnson who gave the mysterious "OK to fly" to Alaska on April 17, 2008 after Sarah Palin's water broke in Texas (official story!), lived HUNDREDS of miles away. 

Sarah Palin spent January to mid-April 2008 in Alaska's capital Juneau, due to the legislative session. Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, however, lived and worked in Anchorage - which is in fact 849 miles away, according to Google maps. Even the closest staff members of Palin were completely surprised when she announced the pregnancy on March 5, 2008. Even her closest aides had no knowledge of any doctor's appointments.

On our "Politicalgates" blog, you will find all the relevant information regarding Sarah Palin's "pregnancy" through the links which are being mentioned in the sidebar. There is also a link to a "box net" folder with lots of various documents, including Sarah Palin's official schedule from early 2008, which I mentioned above.

We collected a huge amount of damning "circumstantial evidence" regarding Sarah Palin's pregnancy, including photos, video clips and documents. Apart from that, we received excellent inside info from Alaska already about three years ago, when very knowledgeable people from the "upper echolons of society" told us that Palin's pregnancy was faked - and that high-ranking Republicans knew about it.

If you search on youtube for "Michael Carey Palin" you will also see that the faked pregnancy was basically an open secret in Alaska in 2008 (TV-interview with ADN-journalist Michael Carey from September 2, 2008). Sarah Palin herself was confronted with the "fake pregnancy allegations" already in March and April 2008, as Frank Bailey reveals in his book "Blind Allegiance." Even then, when she was still supposedly "highly pregnant" (officially giving birth to a baby weighing more than six pounds on April 18, 2008), Palin was very upset about the allegations - but had no way to refute them! On the contrary, she asked her staff whether the Anchorage Daily News was "suspecting" anything and desperately tried to find ways to "squelch" the rumours, as she called it herself.

I explained this in great detail in a post from February 2011 about "Blind Allegiance", which can be found in the "popular posts" in the sidebar on our blog.

Sarah Palin's article in Newsweek is another "pre-emptive" strike regarding her pregnancy with Trig. Several of those "pre-emptive" strikes happened in the past, or at least were attempted. On one occasion, Sarah Palin even flat out lied about having shown Trig's birth certificate, so desperate was she to get the "rumours" out of the way.

Unfortunately, the media has failed badly in investigating Palin's pregnancy, causing the ridiculous situation that Andrew Sullivan especially is now somewhat "tainted" as being a "Trig Truther" - despite the fact that he asked exactly the right questions, and was one of the very few people who was not fooled - and he should have some received awards for his courage! However, I still have hope that the full truth about Sarah Palin's “pregnancy” will finally be revealed - with evidence which will be impossible to ignore, even for the unwilling media.

While I was the editor of Palingates, one of your readers. Lidia17, created an excellent three part documentary about Sarah Palin's faked pregnancy with Trig.


First part:








There is more. It wasn't Andrew Sullivan or some blogger from the "Daily Kos" who started the rumour that Sarah Palin faked her pregnancy with Trig. In fact, it was an open secret amongst "knowledgeable people" in Alaska, as we know from our own sources from Alaska, and as Anchorage Daily News columnist Michael Carey confirmed on tape in an interview at the Republican National Convention on September 2, 2008:



However, it's even "worse." The rumours that Sarah Palin faked the pregnancy did in fact already emerge in March and April 2008 while Sarah Palin was still officially pregnant! The proof can be found in Sarah Palin's own emails from these months, which have been published by her former top-aide Frank Bailey in his book "Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin." I wrote a detailed post about this in February 2011, quoting extensively from Sarah Palin's emails.

UPDATE:


For those wondering as to whether there is a recent picture of Trig in Newsweek magazine my very reliable sources tell me that the answer to that is a resounding no.

This is the most recent photo that I have seen of Trig. It was posted on January 21st, 2012 on Bristol's public facebook. Here he is with Bristol and Tripp. Bristol writes "Love these boys." h/t to hopeforamerica.
