Saradise Lost - Book 4 - Chapter 20 -- The Crazy Woman Lies About Producing Her Son’s Birth Certificate

Thursday, on the Rusty Humphries radio show, Sarah Palin lied. She insinuated President Obama has never shown his birth certificate, and that she had shown her son Trig's. Both statements are lies.

About President Obama's birth certificate, here's the exchange:

HUMPHRIES: Would you make the birth certificate an issue if you ran?

PALIN: Um, I think the public, rightfully, 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 enough members of the electorate still want answers.

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

PALIN: I think it's a fair question...

About her youngest son Trig's birth certificate, here's the exchange:

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. That weird conspiracy theory freaky thing that people talk about, that Trig isn't my real son, a lot of people say, "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 should reverse that and use the same type of thinking on the other one.[ emphasis added]

Sarah and Todd Palin have never produced a birth certificate for Trig Palin.

The only document they have produced regarding the boy's birth is a letter from Palin's personal doctor, Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, that was issued the day before the 2008 national election. At some blogs, the Baldwin-Johnson letter has brought forth as many questions (PDF) as the documents or purported documents related to George W. Bush's Texas Air National Guard service raised.

As part of the messy cleanup on aisle CW caused by Palin's statement on the Rusty Humphries show, Palin's ghost facebook writer has issued the following clarification:

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.

Whooh! That cleared everything up, didn't it? No, it didn't.

I live in Wasilla and will have known Sarah Palin for 19 years, come February 2010. The doctor, Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, who wrote the letter Palin alludes to in the latter's statement, "you need to prove that he's your kid, which we have done" was one of my wife's doctors for both of our kids, and was both kids' pediatrician.

CBJ, as she was often called locally, was a very public fixture around Wasilla up to the time of Trig's birth. Our daughter attended ballet with one of CBJ's kids for years, and I often saw CBJ somewhere or another around Wasilla or Anchorage at least once a week for well over a decade. Between the time of Trig's birth - early 2008 - and the issuance of the election eve letter purported to be from her, CBJ was far less evident. Since the letter was issued, CBJ has been unavailable to comment on it or on any other matter related to Trig and Sarah Palin:

Cathy Baldwin Johnson has never given a simple statement that Trig Palin was born at Mat-Su Hospital on April 18th, that Sarah Palin is his biological mother, and that she - Dr. Baldwin-Johnson - was physically present at the delivery. She would not do this at the following junctures:

1. Back in April, when Trig Palin was allegedly born. She gave ambiguous statements to the press about the circumstances of the birth (several of which contradicted explicitly statements Gov. Palin made) and then she clammed up.

2. On August 31st (when announcing it would have scotched the necessity of announcing – the next day – seventeen year old Bristol's pregnancy);

3. In the letter released before the election

4. To the ADN [Anchorage Daily News] in December when they asked AGAIN [PDF].

I've written about Sarah Palin a fair number of times, but have avoided taking up the"birther" subject unless it became germane to something Palin herself had said. I've written about the four most common birth scenarios involving Palin and Trig elsewhere, but not here - I'm not a "birther." But many questions have arisen, none of which have been answered by the Palins.

Regarding Palin's statement on the Humphries show, memeorandum now lists 49 articles and blog posts. Of them, only one seems to address the falsity of Palin's claim to have released a birth certificate for Trig:

So Palin is saying that he should show his because she has shown hers. Except she hasn't! And he did! And Palin-logic hurts. Where is the birth certificate, Sarah?

Is Palin going to get a pass on this?

Where's Dan Rather when you need him?

So did you physically see Sarah Palin obviously pregnant with Trig? scarf, no outdoor jacket worn indoors, no camouflage?

No one has come forward to ever day they felt her baby kick, they were in the hospital the same time, no hospital photos of the happy new mom, nothing but crickets...

Wolfe Tone said...

As a commenter on another blog has pointed out, Palin "quit being a birther" in less than 24 hrs.

That's a new "quitting record," even for Sarah.

Freshwrestler said...

She is just shooting her wad too damn early. We need her around for another 3 years. She can't keep this up, it isn't mentally possible to be that dumb that long.
Check out her recent statement re: climate change on FB and then her Gov. order 238. Opportunist.

Hiya, Freshwrestler!

Good to see you back.

Freshwrestler said...

I cruise through daily. I have been wasting too much time over on the Fagan's doing some self abuse, leaving comments. That takes much of my internet time. It is a waste of time, but like Sarah, I can't quit watching.

bosshog said...

$arah Palin is a very, very mentally sick woman. I used to be quite skeptical about the Trig Truther folks, but after seeing the chronological photos on Palingates and Bree Palin, I am totally convinced that they are right and Palin faked Trig's pregnancy. Even more now that she has made false statements about producing Trig's birth certificate. The wild ride story is total BS. Time for CBJ to come clean and redeem her reputation. Keep the pressure on, Phil.

Drew said...

Sarah Palin,

Show us Trig's Birth Certificate and a DNA Test to prove that he shares Todd and Sarah Palin's DNA.

That will shut us all up.

I apologize, I must have misplaced the link that you furnished regarding Trig's birth certificate that you referenced in your interview yesterday.

Thank you very much for giving this very important issue credibility!!

From what I have gleaned over the months, CBJ has had a sterling reputation for years, especially her work with children.

I'll bet she rues the day she ever got involved with Palin and her dysfunctional family, and is quaking in her mukluks over the possibility she could lose her license.

That sick, twisted narcissist (SP) leaves only grief in her wake.

Her nearly instantaneous reversal tells us something very interesting about Sister Sarah's present course, because it shows very clearly that she is under someone else's control. Her disdain for our president and her enthusiastic embrace of the Birther nonsense comes through loud and clear in the interview, yet she immediately denies having said what she said. Why? Because whoever is pulling her strings gave her the order and she obeyed. "They" know that Sarah coming out as a Birther would sink her, and when they told her to backpedal, she did. This woman is very stubborn and does not normally listen to reason, so she is obviously completely under "their" control.

So who is this "they"? I'm guessing Murdoch, although I don't think he's alone (perhaps with the Family? Zionists and End TImers do make common cause if for entirely different reasons). It is obvious now that the reason Sarah resigned was to go on this overblown "book tour"; remember Murdoch's yacht and plane up in Alaska before she announced she was resigning?

There has NEVER been a book tour like this in the history of publishing, and I don't understand why no one is reporting on that. A private plane on standby to ferry around a dozen people, including the author's children, father, parents, and AUNT? A specially painted bus (or two) just for props? All that security (paid for by HC)? Do you have any idea what the bill for this would be? Accommodation at five-star hotels and meals for a dozen people for a month? Not only that, but Murdoch publishes the book and then all his TV stations give her "book" tour virtual nonstop coverage. What book has ever had this kind of publicity?

Huckabee recently had a booksigning right before one of Sarah's. How many people even know he's on a book tour right now? He was said to have drawn the same crowd with less than half the security and none of the restrictions. AND none of the Fox news coverage. Yet he works for them!

Actually, when you consider the extravaganza of this book tour, the constant Fox coverage, all the interviews, the full page ads taken out in newspapers along the route, the fact that she has only sold a million copies is rather telling.

She's a fake phenomena, created by Murdoch. But to what end? THAT is the question we should be asking.

Midnightcajun @7:58, you are completely right and completely freaking me out. I'm wondering now if even out and out exposure of the Trig hoax will stop them. The handlers turn everything about her to their advantage, so that lack of education becomes admired and lack of personal integrity gets cheered as Murdoch et al fold it into Sarah's victimhood theme. It's sick and scary because the book tour is enriching two of the world's most amoral pieces of shit, Murdoch and SP.

Where is CJB now? Did she retire, leave Wasilla, change hospitals, or otherwise sacrifice her career and personal life?

Trig is running for President?
