Archivist's Blog has MOVED!




NEW LOOK! Thanks to my baby brother for his help! (Sheesh! I just asked for help with ONE thing and next thing you know, he redesigned the whole blog)

Please change your bookmark to:

About the Rag Tag Bloggers

Gryphen, once again, you have a great post. Palingates, Bree Palin(and the former PalinDeceptions) have the best database of photos, information and documents of ANY website.

It's interesting that you posted this TODAY: yesterday, I was thinking about all of this while doing some yardwork; it's like you have ESP (or I do) about the role of the MSN in this.

What I was thinking about, was this: The value of the Internet is that so much information is available to anyone. Flip side of that, is the downside of the Internet. While you and the othe two excellent blogs I have mentionned have spent thousands of hours on this story, it is likely that a career reporter, backed by the resources of " expense accounts and the support a national publication or television network" however, Gryphen, that ALSO means that they will get all the glory AND all the 'monetary reward' for breaking this story.

Personally, I don't CARE which one of you (palingagtes/bree/IM) breaks the story and benefits from all the work/time invested.

Of course, I don't know what kind of collaboration arrangement you 3 sites have, it's none of my business. BUT: I hope that you are all 3 protecting yourselves from the possibility that there is 'someone out there' keeping an eye on you, taking credit for your efforts.

SO, rather than 'hope' for MSN help/interest/resources, can I suggest that you actively seek out such a partner? With an agreement for sharing the inevitable 'profits' that will follow this story?

Protecting the actual website, is one thing. Protecting yourselves and your hard word is something else.

I hope you have (all 3) taken steps to do that.

AND GOOD LUCK! I am one of many who will be proud to say

I hope we ALL have a part in the book/movie, all of us bloggers-in-pyjamas who stuck by the Wild Ride Story!

Dear Bristol, (updated with response by Andrea Freidman)

Since you seem to think that you have the 'right' to lecture people about what is and is not appropriate, I thought I might take a few minutes to respond.

First of all, some advice, Bristol. Do not make the same mistake as most of your Mom's fans which is: form opinions before checking out facts and informing yourself.

BEFORE you go off on a rant, or allow your name to be signed to one, make sure you know what 'you' are offended about! If you are going to object to a TV show, shouldn't you at least have a clue about it? Fact is, Bristol, that Family Guy didn't mock your brother in any way. If you'd watched the show, you would know that. (Your Mom? Well that's another issue; hey, everybody with half a brain laughs at her!)

The character, Ellen is on a date, a 'normal' activity for a teen. She is assertive, demanding and self-centered; a normal attitude for a modern teen-aged girl. She isn't a slobbering idiot who can't pick up a fork, she is quite poised. How is that mocking?

There are 4 facts we know about the character.

1- She is a teen aged girl .
2- She has DS.
3- Her Mom is an ex-Governor of Alaska
4- Her Dad is an Accountant.

So ... Think about this:

1- Trigg is a baby boy.
2- He has DS.
3- His Mom is an ex-Governor of Alaska (open to debate, but for the sake of argument, I'll play along here)
4- His Dad is .... Well, what IS his Dad exactly? A fisherman? A oil worker? An ex Shadow-Governor? He isn't an Accountant, is he?

SO .... Of the 4 'facts' about Ellen (the character) there are TWO facts in common, the Mom and the DS.

... Let's go on to you:

1- You are a teen aged girl
2- You do not have DS.
3- Your Mom is an ex-Governor
4- Your Dad is not an Accountant, right?

SO, of the 4 'facts' about Ellen (the character) there are TWO facts in common, the Mom and the teen aged girl!

Maybe the show was about YOU, Bristol!

Maybe the girl, was YOU and not your 'brother' !

A very interesting question then comes up. Since the first 3 facts can apply in some way to either you or Trigg, one can't help but wonder: WHAT WAS THE POINT OF FACT #4: MAKING ELLEN's FATHER AN ACCOUNTANT?

It does become the 'factor' doesn't it, if looking for reasons WHY you and your Mom and She-Who-Writes-the-Notes immediately assumed that Ellen represented Trigg, when 2 of the first 3 facts apply equally to you and Trigg. Therefore, it's logical to assume that the 4th 'qualifier' (the Accountant Dad) is the one that IDENTIFIED Trigg.

I'm just saying ......... Since 2 or the 4 traits are common to both you and Trigg, WHY ARE YOU SO QUICK TO ASSUME AN INSULT TO TRIGG???

Is Trigg's father an 'accountant'???

Did the show just throw that out in order to 'eliminate' the Palin kids OR is there a reason for that 'fact' being dangled out there?

Is HIS DAD an 'accountant' ?? It's a reasonable question to ask!


****That was quite insulting to the actress who played Ellen; Andrea Freidman is a successful professional with an impressive resume. She ALSO has DS. Look her up. I saw her recently on an old Law & Order SVU and she is quite talented.

In my view, I would say that she is a role model. A great example of what a DS child can accomplish when growing up in a family with support, encouragement and dedicated care to the special needs of a child with DS.

So Bristol, who do you think you are, to judge this young woman's work? Her 'experience' is a whole lot more reliable than yours is insofar as the 'challenges' she and others with DS face on a daily basis.

Who do you think you are, suggesting that Andrea is somehow 'wrong' to portray a teen girl out on a date, simply because that girl has DS? YOU Bristol are the one doing the 'gut kicking' ......... Insinuating that somehow, it's wrong to portray this very normal teen activity.

BTW ... Bristol ... That SVU episode I mentioned earlier? Andrea played a young girl who had a baby 'by accident' ......

Do you object to TV shows that have unwed teen mothers too? Do you feel 'targeted' then too?

Bristol, who are you to lecture others on kindness .... YOU are presently trying to keep your son's father from his life! Is that considerate to your son? Whatever your issues with your son's father, you need to rise above that, and do what is best for that little boy and THAT is doing whatever you can to NURTURE a relationship, not PREVENT one.

Stop whining about attacks! We see through it when your Mom does it, and we see through it when you do it. You make up 'attacks' then flatter yourselves that you have 'thick skins'. The 'poor me!' act might work with the sycophants you allow on FB but ... well the rest of us can read!

Stop whining about Trigg! There is only one person to blame for the attention he gets and that is your Mom who uses him as a prop and a shield. The lack of respect shown to that baby during the recent book tour was sickening, so please, save us from your outrage at imagined slights!

Yours sincerely,

Archivist. :)

P.S. I just read on Immoral minority that you are in the process of trying to pretty much destroy Levi. Bristol, he is your son's father; you can't hurt Levi without also hurting your son. Look at the effect your Mom's selfish decisions have had on you and your siblings ..... is that what you want for your son?

Great PR work ... Shame on you, Bristol. Money doesn't buy class.

Remember ..... KARMA!

***************************** UPDATE

Andrea Freidman has responded to Bristol's mindless rant in an email to the New York Times by saying that Sarah Palin doesn't have a sense of humor!

So now, Little Bristol
..... You are in a pickle, aren't you? After all, in your paranoid world, any challenge to a Palin, is an ATTACK! BUT ..... how can you respond to this ATTACK! when it comes from someone who actually KNOWS what she's talking about? You can't really tell Andrea that she has 'no idea' of the 'challenges' she faces, can you? Are you going to get into a FB fight with a woman with DS now??? Or, will you pull out the usual Palin Hypocrisy tactic, and make an exception when it comes to someone you can't possibly stand up to?

SarahScamPAC: The Scam that is SarahPAC and the amateurs who get paid to make it worse!


Monday, February 1, 2010 must have been a hard day at SarahPAC Central.

SarahScamPAC is exposed.

SarahSalad writers are outted!

And now, President Obama is getting all the headlines with his bold (and scary) budget.


What to do? What to do? Good thing SarahPAC has her own personal PR and Political Consulting Firms to call on to keep her in the headlines!

- I know! I know! Let's write a SarahNOTE!

So the busy little marmots sharpen their claws & pencils, and have a peek at the Budget!

- Jeeezasss! Sarah, look at all these ZEROS!

- We don't know SHIT about this stuff! It's full of freaking NUMBERS! And these things called 'Entitlements'. WTF are those??

- Holy SHIT, this has to be projected for a whole YEAR?

- Some of this crap has to be planned for TEN EFFING YEARS! That's even farther off than 'Sarah! Sarah! 2012' !!! Who does that!

- Damn! Those lib-tards!. No fair! Damn Educated Elistist lib-tards!

- We can't do this! Can we just say he wants to kill the troops with Defense Cuts?

- OK. Don't panic. Let's USE ONE OF THE KIDS!

- Yeah! Good idea!

- Which one? The retard?

- You betcha, even the lib-tards love the Trig-Trick!

........... and so it goes! An outrage is born!. A diversion is created!

Tuesday morning, at SarahScamPAC Central:

- It worked! It worked! HuffPost picked up the SarahNOTE! Sam Stein is writing about it! WHEW! Mission Accomplished.

Yes! the SarahSalad Note got mentionned on

Yes! there were 1000s of comments!

OOPS! Most of them pointing out exactly what SarahScamPAC was trying to deflect!

Good Grief! You'd think SarahPAC was paying High School girls and Bloggers in Pyjamas to do her PR and Political Consulting wouldn't you?

How did this Goat Rodeo of a PR fiasco happen?

A recent story in the The Wall Street Journal has given Sarah's Note-writer a handy little shiny object for the Palinbots to focus on; lucky break! This week, the last thing SarahCentral wants is Palinbots, hungry for news about Sarah, to be going out into the real world and reading about the SarahScamPAC !

So, lucky for them, an old story about Rahm Emmanuel surfaced! Nothing Palinbots like more than find a word they 'understand' to get outraged! OUTRAGED! about.

Not a diversion, some might say? Hmmm well, the 'Timeline for Slow Readers' (or is that Non Readers?) goes like this:

TUESDAY, January 26, 2010: Story by Peter Wallsten appears in the WSJ that reports

The friction was laid bare in August when Mr. Emanuel showed up at a weekly strategy session featuring liberal groups and White House aides. Some attendees said they were planning to air ads attacking conservative Democrats who were balking at Mr. Obama's health-care overhaul.

"F—ing retarded," Mr. Emanuel scolded the group, according to several participants. He warned them not to alienate lawmakers whose votes would be needed on health care and other top legislative items.

WEDNESDAY, January 27, 2010 Rahm Emmanuel, according to Politico

....called Tim Shriver Wednesday to apologize and the apology was accepted," the official said.

Shriver is the Chairman and CEO of the Special Olympics, which has launched a campaign against what it calls "the R word."

January 30-31 2010: Disclosure Statements are released by SarahPAC detailing the financial INs & OUTs of the $2.1 Million Piggy-bank-with-Lipstick that SarahGrifter 'controls'. As most of us know, the smart folks at Palingates had a busy weekend following every disbursement and tracking down the 'owners' of several firms providing 'Political Consultancy' services to SarahPAC.

WHAT? The founders of conservatives4palin registered a company (within days of Bristol's! Coincidence!) that collected ***** from SarahPAC?

WHAT? That private jet, was ALSO paid for by SarahPAC? The All-American girl, on her cross-county tour meeting thousands of first-time reader, didn't REALLY ride that SarahPAC-PAID-FOR bus all over real America? We knew that of course, but it's always nice to have official documentation, isn't it?

WHAT? The shrink-wrap for that SarahBUS was paid for by SarahPAC?

WHAT? SarahPAC bought over $60,000 worth of SarahSalad books to 'give' to donors? Oh yea, I remember that! A $100.00+ donation to SarahPAC got you an autographed copy of the book! Bought by SarahPAC for SarahPAC as gifts to donors.

WHAT? SarahPAC bought an automatic signing machine?

NOW THAT is too hilarious, and as Bobbie Wilkins, an astute FB friend posted

I think that is pretty funny...Why would you want a book written by someone else that a machine signed?? No logic there....

Indeed; but ... as we all know, logic and Palinbots are like ... like ... well, like "palinbots" and "real people". Never the twain shall meet!

I could go on and on, but you get the drift of this grift, don't you. Read more at Palingates.

So, Monday, in an attempt to find some SHINY OBJECTS for Sarah's Palinbots to focus on, the old story about Rahm's comment -- which had NOTHING TO DO WITH TRIG --- was incorporated into a SarahSalad Note for her Facebook page.

I am just having a laugh, watching SarahEgo set up her 'friends' (sound familiar, Alaskans?) in jobs and positions that they are CLEARLY not qualified to do.

A Scam is a Scam is a Scam. Ask Maddoff and his friends! (wink!)

They could be pyramids.

Some are more like trees.

But, SarahScamPAC is more like a CIRCLE SCAM (ahem, you know what I mean?)

SarahGrifter pays bloggers to write those Facebook notes....

.....paid by her SarahScamPAC donations......

.....Donations from gullible people who send her their hard earned money...

Hard earned money used to pay grifter expenses like a private jet and designer dressed bus on her book tour........

For a book tour that sold books to put money in her pocket........

...... when buying her OWN books with SarahScamPAC donations.

Updated & Expanded: A Few 'Common Sense' questions: SarahPAC and where does the money go?


Looking at the Disclosure Statement for SarahPAC a couple of simple questions popped into my mind.

More than $132,000.00 from SarahPAC money was used for the book tour. Is that what her fans think they are donating their hard-earned money for? So that Sarah can promote her book? Private jets ($27,000), expensive hotels ($1700.00 for 2 nights) the shrink-wrapped bus ($13,000) and almost $28,000 for a photographer -- (fans paid for their pictures too??) Why didn't Harper Collins pay for this? Or is there some double dipping going on??

So here are my common sense questions:

If Sarah used the PAC money for expenses on her book tour, then it was a Political Event?

And if it was a Political Event, why was she allowed to 'campaign' on Military Bases??

The thing about PACs is that they are a great way for many people to contribute to the candidate of their choice. That candidate can spend the PAC money on pretty much any political expense. Getting your hair done before an event? Breakfast for the crew/family? Printing flyers? Making a phone call from a Hawaiian vacation to a TV station? Diapers for the Trig-Prop? Free books? Private planes?

A BOOK TOUR? Well, I guess so! Sarah has several 'items' on her disclosure statement that seem to be related to the book tour ... here I thought Harper Collins would be paying for that, but ... nope, looks like the PAC picked up some of those 'expenses'. Did the PAC pay for all the security at the Military Bases? (I don't see that itemized, so I guess the taxpayers paid for that?)

A while back, I posted about Bristol's company BSMP LLC; I wondered, what does a young girl, barely graduated from High School, know about running a company that does Political Consulting? Have you seen her on Oprah, talking about abstinence? Did YOU see a savvy Public Relations expert there? She seemed like your average teenager to me. I thought at the time, and still do, that this company was just a front to absord the SarahPAC funds with easy tasks that someone with Bristol's expertise could handle while being paid (from SarahPAC) a handsome fee!

Looking at the SarahPAC Disclosure Statement it's easy to see how spending money on just about anything is legitimate. Itemize an 'expense' to 'Political Consulting' and that's it! Keeping a lot of this hard-earned money, donated by the millions of gullible fans, in the family! Granted, there are no 'payments' listed to BSMP for 2009 .... but it was founded in September 2009, so they are probably still shopping for furniture and office equipment. Are the offices of the new PR/Political Consulting firm conveniently (tax deduction?) in the new house on the Palin compound? Right next to Sarah's FOX-at-Home studio?? Or are they next to Tripp's nursery?

I predict that 2010 will be a very productive year for BSMP! Bristol, being a young single Mom, has a LOT on her plate right now .... it takes TIME to learn all that political and PR stuff! And Sarah has to progress Meg into another position before Bristol takes over that lucrative contract! Will she take over writing the Facebook Notes that keep the fans coming back to read what Sarah doesn't know she 'wrote' ??

Speaking of the gullible donors .... SarahPAC received 2.1 million in 2009. Spent $64,000 on supporting candidates .... there is $900,000 left in the bank. So, where is the rest of it? According to Meg Stapleton (owner of IzzyLene Consulting) spokesperson for SarahPAC and all things Palin, they are very pleased with the amount of money taken in, considering they did very little fundraising.

But, Meg that isn't quite true, is it? The PAC paid out thousands of dollars to > What did they do? Do they have a person on staff, full-time, making up Facebook identities and joining as a fan to boost the numbers? Because, quite frankly, the same few people seem to post there all the time!

However, some excellent research at Palingates answers where several of those $1000.00's have gone toward paying 'other' newly formed 'consulting firms'. Owned by people who are connected to some Pro-Palin blogs, and formed, I might add, about the same time that Bristol's company was formed! So, Meg, the PAC did very little fundraising?

Other than the Book Tour, of course. How much does it cost to have a FB page? How much does it cost to plaster the link to SarahPAC all over the thousands of Pro-Sarah sites?

As an aside, though: only 2.1 million? Wow. I spend a lot of time reading Sarah's OFFICIAL site, and her million+ fans are always talking about how they are sending money to her! I expected a whole lot MORE millions of dollars to show up at SarahPAC! Sounds to me that some of those posts about having donated were ... hmmmm... not quite true? Are they non-donating paid fans? Just askin' .......

Smarter people than me will no doubt go through the fine print of the statement, and good for them. I am just an ordinary, everyday person, who has always had an interest in Current Events, not an accountant OR even a Political Consultant! However, who knew it was so EASY to become a Political Consultant?




1- Earlier this evening, I received an email that a listing on Anchorage Craig list that mentioned my blogpost about SarahPAC was removed, reposted and removed again.

There is also a post about this blog and Gryphens on there (rants and raves) and so far they are still there!

Sarah or someone who works for her is earning an awful lot of PAC money monitoring anything that Sarah doesn't like!

Well .... it seems that the people being PAID to monitor anything Sarah doesn't like are earning their $$$ tonight!

I don't think the DONORS to the SarahPAC meant for their money to be used this way!!! But, that's OK .... I (and others) are ALSO monitoring you now ... and you can't delete my blog!

2_ So ... I reposted:
Flag it if you must, it WILL be reported. In fact, I may post on other news site about this interesting turn of events. I am SURE Sarah will be proud of you, and pleased to see this story in the nationally read blogs!!!

It's not as if CL is the ONLY place to post! As someone said on ... you're not in Kansas anymore, Toto!


I received an email about posts on here with my blogpost at being deleted.

Very interesting to me, when someone attempts to silence someone else.

We know that Sarah does that all the time, well, at least I know, since my blog is about Sarah's fans on Facebook. I see it all the time, people being deleted for saying something that Sarah doesn't like.

I noticed that a few other blogs are mentionned on here. is very good, and in fact that one is also checking out the SarahPAC disclosure list! Having posts deleted from here, will make it even MORE INTERESTING to dig into what Sarah's been doing with all that money her fans send her.

Apparently, Sarah didn't think anyone would check it out? She must think everyone is as easy to fool as her fans are! Tsk Tsk Sarah, by now, you should know better!

So ... now that I have found this site, I will be sure to keep you all up to date with what is going on with Sarah outside of Alaska! There is NOTHING more tantalizing than trying to figure out WHY someone wants to silence information!

It positively makes me ..... WANT to dig even more!

Information is what the 1st Amendment is all about, after all. And ... we all know how much Sarah LOVES the Constitution, don't we??

OH .. and please, DO keep those emails coming! I love to hear from you!

As ever,

Archivist1000 :)

Palins and Tebows for CHOICE; who knew?

It's Tebow Time Again!

The Tebow family is in the news! First, Tim and his Mom, Saint Pam are the spokespeople for the so called "Pro-Life" movement, and are partipating in a high profile ad during the Super Bowl. Then, the controversy about whether or not this is appropriate; CBS decide that it was, so the ad will run. Case closed, right???

NOT SO FAST ........ says Gloria Alred! Dear Gloria claims that the ad just might be based on a 'falsehood'!

What???? A missionary and a falsehood? Say it aint so!

It seems, according to Ms Alred, that Saint Pam's story has a hole in it; at the time that she claims to have 'chosen' to carry Baby Tim to term, abortion in the Phillipines was ILLEGAL. Is it likely that a Doctor would have given Saint Pam advice to abort this baby??

Is it?

Well .. what we DO know is that Saint Pam chose to have her baby, he was fine and Lo! and Behold! today we have the Miracle Heisman Trophy Boy (no, I don't mean OJ !!!)

Isn't choice WONDERFUL ???

So, back to Saint Pam's choice. If abortion was illegal then and there, and a Doctor is subject to jail time for even suggesting it .. is it likely that he WOULD have? Ms Alred doesn't think so!

Here is what I think happened.

Saint Pam, trying to make herself appear 'brave' and 'wonderful' probably told a little white lie once, at a Bible Study group with only a few others present.

A little exageration ... an attempt to show that 'See? A Doctor was wrong, and my faith in God prevailed!'

Missionaries DO tell stories to entice people ... all the time! Stories about miracles. Stories about salvation! Stories about floods and arks and dinosaurs being too big to fit in the ark, so they all drowed and became extinct. Stories about Sky Fairies that love people so much that no amount of pain and suffering and misery is enough to show this love!

So, a story to the faithful, about how Saint Pam chose to have this baby, and some of those present for this testimony to god's amazing powers, amazed at the amazing story repeated it to others in amazement .... and Saint Pam Tebow was stuck with the amazement-making story.

So it becomes part of 'who she is' ... maybe she even believes it now.

These god freaks are used to believing 'myths and legends' anyway, aren't they? 'My god is wonderful, see what he did for me?' kinda thing.

Remember the one about (insert bible myth here) ???

So the story is repeated, over and over again, until it becomes a PART of the Tebow legend! Carried away in fervor, years later, the story has now hit the MSN, she can't walk away from it. Saint Pam has become a symbol! Ironically, she is a symbol for CHOICE though, but that's another story!

Now, here's the funny part.

In December, My FB friend, Patt Truman alerted me to this post by a Palinbot:

Palin Pal (says) Sarah, I am matchmaking. You must invite Tim Tebow, QB University of Florida to dinner. He is a perfect match for your lovely daughter Bristol. He is very religious and wears bible versus under his eyes for every football game. Awesome, Awesome person.

I have to admit, I had to read it 3 times...... that 'versus under his eyes' thing really had me trying to figure out if dear Tim's eyes are crossed and fighting each other, of if bible thumpers have a different way of playing football than the normal folks do!

Ok ... he meant Bible verses .... if he was such a good Xtian, you'd think he'd know how to spell that, wouldn't you?? Is it a requirement that Palin supporters be illiterate? Must be.

So this is the funny part! A Palinbot thinks Tim and Bristol would make such a lovely couple! So much in common!

Bristol and Saint Pam both CHOSE to have their baby, at least that is the story!

How did a story about a woman CHOOSING to do what is right for her (true or not) become a spokesperson for an organization that would love to deny CHOICE to others?

How did a teen aged girl, who becomes a single mother, become the spokesperson for ABSTINENCE?

Why does every nutty story seem to have a Palin angle to it, anyway?
How did Tim end up being the 'link' to these two women??

Sarah? Sarah? Is this you???


OOPS! This little gem got past the Mods on Sarah's OFFICIAL page!

Jim Sesi (says) Sarah, I was sad and shocked to find the following

Jim's link here

So, of course, I followed that link; how could I resist a glimpse into something that a Palinbot would be 'sad and shocked' to read?

I don't vouch for any of it, BUT I will say that it's very well written AND sourced, and makes for an interesting read!
