Why Did Sue Williams Say Trig IS Sarah and Todd's Baby?
This continues a series on Sue Williams, a woman in Wasilla who was “hanging out with close friends of the Heath family” the first two days after John McCain announced his choice of running mate.We have tools to measure Sue’s credibility; tools we didn’t have in 2008.
In “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin,” released this year, Palin administration insider Frank Bailey said, “Nothing was more important…than preserving [Sarah’s] image” (page 5). Chapter after chapter details the lengths to which Sarah went to create her image – a false image. The book includes many emails to support the dishonesty he and many others perpetrated. In addition, the past year brought the release of government email from the Palin administration. We have sifted through, and seen that, indeed, Sarah Palin used everyone around her to get out whatever message, ie “spin” that was best for Sarah. Political polls were rigged by staffers voting multiple times, friends agreed to claim authorship of letters to editors written by Sarah or her staff. It goes on and on. Sarah’s image was based on lies and built by a cadre of willing liars – staff, family and friends.
Unlike Frank Bailey, Sue Williams was not in the inner circle, she was one layer removed. Sue was in that category of people that Facebook calls your “Friends of Friends.” It’s a valuable glimpse into what friends of the Palins and Heaths were saying about the hockey mom who became governor. “Sarah is all about spin, spin, spin,” that’s a key point. In fact, THE KEY POINT is to remember that SARAH was SPINNING her message through her friends and colleagues. Nothing was (or is) the way Sarah says it is unless it works for her. That’s how Sarah operates.
Would Sarah’s friends help spread personal spin? You betcha! Otherwise she wouldn’t keep them around. We know that. Frank Bailey is prime example #1. Therefore, assume inside information these friends provided to Sue Williams came FROM SARAH and there’s a Sarah spin on it.
2008 was a busy year for the Palins. So much to spin, so many lies:
Trig was born prematurely (to someone).
Bristol lived with Aunt Heather in Anchorage (a large city where a baby could be in an NICU).
Bristol was enrolled in and attended school in Anchorage.
Rumors spread across the state that Bristol was pregnant.
Bristol told her parents she was pregnant (in early March)
Sarah announced on March 5 that she was 7 months pregnant. She did not show.
Sarah’s shape fluctuated wildly, sometimes bigger and other times smaller.
Levi dropped out of school in mid-March.
Bristol became a homeschooler in mid-March.
Willow told her boyfriend Bristol was pregnant, he tells others, the news is getting around.
The Wild Ride played out and a new Sarah myth was born (even if a baby wasn’t).
Trig was presented to reporters in a hospital corridor by Sally and Chuck Heath.
The DS announcement followed soon after, along with lots of sympathy-getting stories to stir the hearts of every pro-life voter.
Wow! Sarah had more plates spinning in the summer of 2008 than an Ed Sullivan ever imagined possible. So, with our advanced studies in all things Palin, we ought to be able to spot the spin in the things Sue Williams heard from the Heath/Palin inner circle. Such as:
Re: babygate – I don’t know what’s being reported. Here, however, is the truth. Trig is Sarah and Todd’s baby….
Sue Williams wasn’t a nurse, or a doctor, so she wasn’t there, so she must be trusting the inner circle and friends of the Heaths. Sue bought into the spin because Sue wasn’t jaded enough to think a sitting governor would fake a pregnancy.
When Sarah first learned she was pregnant, it was shocking and overwhelming. While she and Todd had not planned to have anymore children, it is common knowledge among their family and friends that neither of them ever surgically insured that they wouldn’t have any “late in life” surprises/blessings.
That first part, we’ve heard over and over. Sarah gets paid 100K a pop to spin that lie to pro-lifers. But the part about their reproductive equipment is interesting, and needs consideration. Apply the spin factor. How many people share THAT kind of information with their friends? How many friends go around repeating such things? If this was common knowledge then Sarah orchestrated the talk on purpose.
Here’s a test. Why would you tell your friends something you DIDN’T do? Something very personal and something they aren’t asking about at all. Why would friends repeat it? How is NOT doing something a topic of gossip? Are they now saying “Did you know Sarah decided not to take and estrogen supplement for pari-menopause?” It’s absurd.
So, because it was heard by Sue Williams and described as common knowledge, we have to say, why the spin? On other blogs, for years, it’s been said that Sarah had her tubes tied. It’s been said she used the surgery as an excuse to not do her share of carpool driving at one time. If that’s true, it explains the reason Sue heard about Todd’s reproductive capabilities. Personally, I’d rather not know.
Sarah was running for VP and would be expected to produce medical records. Now we know how that turned out, too. Fits the theory that she and Todd really couldn’t have created Trig. Spin all you want Sarah, I, for one, am not fooled.
Maybe some of Sarah’s friends actually believed at that time that Trig was her bio son. I’m not saying if they lied or they didn’t. But I do think she asked them to talk about the surgery she and Todd “didn’t have.” Did they lie or are they blind like Frank Bailey was blind. Don’t know. Maybe. We’ve seen from Frank’s book that she can get people to do that.
I didn’t say nobody tells lies. Goodness, read the accounts of Sarah at andrew halcro.com and at the adn.com for the past six weeks. Make up your own mind about whether Sarah and her closest associates in her Administration were telling lies (hint: her close aide, Frank Bailey is now on leave with pay b/c he was caught in the most pathetic, on tape, lying shenanigan). But, do I think CBJ, Sarah’s doc, would lie? I do not think so.
Sue also said CBJ was her own doctor. So Sue wrestled with the question of Trig being born to Sarah, and decided he was only because CBJ wouldn’t lie. Nothing to do with seeing Sarah pregnant, or believing Sarah’s story.
Other people in the inner circle thought the Trig story could sink Sarah. Why would that be if they knew it was a true report of an actual pregnancy and birth? Here is what the inner circle talked about on day two:
I assume she must have mentioned the whole scenario to McCain, right? She wouldn’t have blindsided him with this -? But, I don’t know. That was the discussion around these parts this morning – How much did McCain know about the baby stuff…
THE BABY STUFF? That sounds so mysterious. Not, “did she tell McCain Bristol is pregnant?” That would be simple, clear, unambiguous. But ‘baby STUFF”? Stuff like faking a pregnancy, covering up for your daughter, hiding a teenager’s history of multiple births ? That kind of stuff? Again, I think we can look at that as supporting our suspicions. It’s not proof. But it does lend credence to our Trig is not Sarah’s theory and other “baby stuff.”
The inner circle wasn’t completely free of disapproval when it came to how the Palin kids were being raised.
…The kids are “farmed out” (this is the word used by their associates in “the Valley”) to family and friends to raise while Todd and Sarah are off having their respective careers (Sarah is famously quoted as saying, “My mom does whatever I need her to”).
Is that Sarah’s hometown version of her national message that they have a big supportive family? Personally, I get a laugh out of it. I picture Sally smiling for reporters with Trig in her arms, standing in a hospital corridor.
...and how much did he know about Troopergate (like, the interesting little fact that she’s been caught multiple times the past six weeks not telling the truth).This, I think, is what will finally get her. She can’t be prepping for the cursory answers she’s going to have to memorize on every national and intl issue – AND remember what she said when and to whom re: her Troopergate cover-up attempts. ..My. My. It’s not gonna be pretty.
Well, even her close friends, the inner circle and Heath friends were saying that. Something had to be done! On Youtube you can find Chuck Heath Sr being interviewed three weeks later, late September, by Harry Smith of CBS. He and Sally say there are lies being told. And Chuck says, “You want some honesty, get her. Not a typical politician. Not at all. Hardworking, perseverance, honesty. She won’t fabricate things, or exaggerate things. She’ll tell it like it is. Yeah.”
Atta boy Chuck! You've been helping Sarah lie since you taped up her fingers to get her out of playing with the band. She turned out to be everything you hoped and more.
In my next post we will look for truth in these statements from Sue Williams:
Bristol was pregnant at sixteen
Bristol was pregnant at seventeen
Willow’s boyfriend told people in April that Bristol was pregnant
Levi and Bristol got married
