Replying To The Comments On My Last Post *UPDATE*


A couple of commenters suggested that I open an Etsy Shop for hubby’s pens. Thanks for the suggestion. Here is the link to the shop there. I only have one pen on display there but it is a real beauty, especially if you like bright and colorful.

The yola site is still active as well. Thanks for everyone’s support!

Sorry for being absent but I have been busy setting up a website for hubby’s pens. He is trying very hard to make enough money to move us to Texas so my son and daughter-in-law can help care for me. If you are looking for handmade Christmas gifts that are beautiful and functional, please take a look. I am still adding more pens to the site as he now has almost 40 finished ink pens. Thanks for looking and spread the word if you know someone who might be interested.


Rather than go through and address comments individually, I just addressed everything here.

Yes, at the end of the last post, I made a typo.

“Thoughts, please about how those pictures of an older Trig could exist in February 2009. That is what really wows me about this whole thing.”

The typo was caused by my finishing the post around 1am. I meant Tripp, of course.

Several people posted about Tripp being balanced on top of someone’s knees in the first picture and think Tripp is on his back. Here are my thoughts about that picture. I think he is lying on his stomach on top of someone else’s stomach, propping himself up on his arms. I used to put my son on my belly like that a lot when he was a baby. If Tripp is on his back, balanced on someone’s knees, wouldn’t his head be angled back toward the knees of that person? Could those who think he is on his back, please explain how you think he is positioned? I also think his alertness and obvious engagement with his surroundings supports my theory that he is quite a bit older than 7 weeks in that picture.

Some of you are comparing Tripp and “airplane baby”. Truthfully, I don’t see an amazing resemblance but I do see some similarities.

Thanks, SarahLies, for finding that picture with 3 bottles. Very strange, as is the picture of Trig(?) in the chicken costume. With all the adorable Halloween costumes available, why a chicken?

Also, interesting is the comment about the TRIPP license plate being requested in March 2008.

However, I still find this picture of Tripp taken on July 25, 2009 to be the most important piece of the puzzle.


How can the face of this baby, in a picture taken on July 25, 2009, be so similar to the face of the baby in the picture below taken on or before February 15, 2009?


The chubby cheeks, the double chins and the wrinkled brows all look so similar in these two pictures. Do we ignore that Tripp looks a lot older than 7 weeks in the picture above and conclude that his appearance just didn’t change much during the 5 months between February and July of 2009?

This picture, while not from the same angle is from May 2009 and the plump cheeks and round chin do not seem to be present. I also don’t think a baby’s appearance is going to stay nearly the same for over five months. Babies change a lot in that period of time.


So as convoluted as it sounds my theory is that there are identical twin Tripps, that may or may not be part of a set of triplets that includes Trig. One Tripp was very sickly and took some time to catch up with his identical twin.

Why were pictures of the bigger Tripp shown on television? Probably a mix-up. I don’t think the Palins are the most organized people.

So everyone weigh in. Do you think my theory is possible? Why or why not? Also, if you have a theory about Tripp, Tripps, and Trig please share it.

If there’s anything you want to share but don’t want to comment, please email me.

Riddle Me This…


Below are some of the pictures of Tripp that were shown both at the beginning  and during the Introducing Tripp interview that took place on February 15, 2009.



In this picture Tripp is on his stomach, holding his head up easily with no support. He is alert and smiling.



In this picture, he appears to be sitting up and has good head control. He seems alert and interested in his surroundings.He also appears to have gained a good amount of weight judging by his round cheeks and double chin.



Here is a photo of Levi wearing what looks like a hospital ID bracelet holding a baby that I assume is the newborn Tripp. Compare these to the first two pictures which would have to have been taken over the following seven weeks.

What puzzles me about the first two pictures?

On February 15, 2009, when this interview was conducted, Tripp was less than two months old. From his reported birthdate of December 27, 2008, he would have been 50 days old or 7 weeks one day old.

I have been around many babies and those first two pictures appear to me to be of a baby much older than 7 weeks.

I think the first picture is compatible with a baby between 4 and 5 months of age and the second picture is compatible with a baby around 7 months old.

The second picture puzzles me greatly because there is a picture of Tripp when he was almost exactly 7 months old taken at the Governor’s Picnic on July 25, 2009. I put the second picture side by side with the picture from the picnic and they look very similar. Same furrowed brow, same chubby cheeks.


So how could pictures of Tripp looking older than his stated 7 weeks exist before February 15, 2009? And also, too, how is it possible for a picture of Tripp taken on July 25, 2009 when he was nearly 7 months old to look so nearly identical to a picture, where by all logic he would have to have been less than 7 weeks old.

Other than time travel, the only explanation that makes any sense is that Tripp and an identical twin were born way before December 27, 2008. The other twin was healthier and grew faster and those first two pictures are of that twin. Why were those pictures shown? Who knows? Where does Trig fit in this conundrum? There are cases where women have had triplets with a set of identical twins plus a singleton. Here is a thread where women in that exact situation are talking. I’m not saying that’s the case with Trig, Tripp and Tripptwin but never say never. Maybe the name Tripp came up when Bristol found she was carrying triplets.

Thoughts, please about how those pictures of an older Trig could exist in February 2009. That is what really wows me about this whole thing.

Please email me or comment here.

My New Theory Regarding Trig and Tripp


Let me make this plain. What you are about to read is pure speculation.

I am aware that another blogger thinks that developing scenarios is useless and possibly detrimental to the efforts to expose Sarah Palin’s baby hoax.

I must respectfully disagree. I think that reviewing the information and formulating theories could play an important part in getting to the truth. If we stick to only discussing what is provable then I think the odds of ever breaking babygate plummet.

Babygate is like a criminal case and the further we get away from 2008, the less likely it becomes that the truth will ever be known. By digging and discussing even the wildest ideas, we keep Sarah Palin’s hoax from becoming a cold case. That is why I will keep going over and over the same pieces of the puzzle, trying different solutions and I hope all of you reading this will help me.

Feel free to add your own theories. Don’t hold back on your opinions about the theory below whether you agree or disagree. With several babygate blogs going on hiatus recently I think it’s important to keep the ones that are still active, alive and thriving. If we back down now, then Sarah wins. I still think it’s important for the truth to be revealed. I think it’s a mistake to relax and assume that Sarah is no longer a threat. Do we know for sure that the eventual GOP Presidential nominee won’t choose her for a running mate? Even if that doesn’t happen, we don’t know what she may do at some point down the road. I want this blog to be a community where any theory can be discussed. If anyone wants to do a guest post just email me. Let’s see what we can come up with working together!



My new theory isn’t entirely new. Here’s a link to a post I wrote in August 2010.

That post discussed how big the supposedly 4 month old Tripp appeared to be on the Today show. Here is a screenshot from the video.


I know it’s a little hard to judge from this picture but if you watch the video in full screen mode you can judge Tripp’s size better, especially in close-ups. Here is a link to the video.

According to CDC growth charts boy babies at the 97th percentile, which would be nearly the largest, are on average 69.48354 centimeters long. 69.48354 centimeters is equal to 27.35572 inches.

Looking at Tripp in Bristol’s arms, I believe he is much longer than just a tad over 27 inches. Bristol’s arm is supporting his neck but most of his head extends well beyond her elbow. His bottom sinks into the gap between her legs, shortening the length of his legs but his feet still hang off her leg a good bit. Imagine how long he would be if he were fully extended.

So if Tripp is much bigger than even the biggest four month olds what would account for that? In my opinion, Tripp must be older than four months.

So here’s my new theory. Bristol gave birth prematurely to fraternal twins in either late 2007 or early 2008. One twin had Down Syndrome, the other was very tiny. At first the Down Syndrome baby was called Tripp and the smaller baby was called Trig. When Sarah decided to fake a pregnancy and present the DS child as hers, she switched their names thus Trig was Tripp before he was Trig and vice-versa.

The baby in the April 18, 2008 pictures is the child known as Trig today. The baby in the May kitchen pictures and shower pictures often called Ruffles is Tripp. Tripp was used because Trig would no longer pass for a newborn much less a preemie. I don’t know why Tripp wasn’t used for the first pictures. Perhaps he was still too ill or maybe there was just a mix up and the wrong baby was photographed.

Tripp was seen for a few weeks until Trig’s size didn’t matter so much then he was kept hidden. When suspicions that Sarah had faked her pregnancy arose, Bristol was forced to follow in her mom’s footsteps and pretend to be pregnant, too. Tripp would be unveiled once Bristol “gave birth”. 

Like mother, like daughter, Bristol didn’t do such a great job faking either. She stuffed paper towels in the pockets of her jacket to make her belly bulge and was caught running on ice when she was supposed to be near full term. I know there is also a video showing her running on the ice but I couldn’t locate it so if anyone has the link, please send it to me and I will add it to this post. 

Tripp was still stashed away for awhile after his birth was announced so the fact that he wasn’t a newborn wouldn’t be so obvious but something is strange about the interview on Fox where he is introduced for the first time. They show pictures of Tripp at the beginning of the interview before they show Bristol and the baby live. However, the baby in the pictures looks older than the baby who Bristol is holding during the interview and Tripp is supposedly less than eight weeks old at the time. It’s hard to get a good look at the baby and I can’t help wondering if it’s really the same one that was in the pictures.

That interview with Greta Van Susteren is worth watching again however I am having trouble embedding the video or posting the link but if you go to, click on their youtube icon on the top right, enter Bristol Palin in the search box on their youtube channel, it’s the first video in the search results on the right.

That Tripp’s age hasn’t been questioned is beyond me but then the Palins are never questioned about anything, are they?

The Tripp we see in the picture below (not sure of the date but I think it’s spring of this year if anyone knows please comment or email me) looks tall enough to be over three years old. He seems to be leaning over and still looks taller than Trig. Preemies do catch up. My less than four lb. preemie son was normal height and weight by age three.



I think these two precious little boys who are presented to the world as uncle and nephew are really twin brothers.

That’s my take and as I said it’s all speculation but it would explain why Levi was said to have picked up a Tripp who was way older than three months from the Palin house in March 2009 and why it was said that Trig was Tripp before he was Trig.

Thoughts On All The Latest Palin Info *UPDATE*


Wow! There has been a lot of new information lately. I am really intrigued by Gryphen’s revelation that he was told of a much older Tripp. I need to look back at my post where I stated that Tripp seemed way too big for his purported age.

I know that the bots are boohooing that we should leave the Palins alone now. They are wallowing in their misery over Sarah’s decision not to run. I would love to feel that Sarah could be safely ignored but alas 2016 is not that far away and if we back away she may feel it’s safe to run. She will have her fans worked into a fevered frenzy by then most assuredly.

I have had to back away from this blog because of my health but I think we are getting so close now that I am going to return to my sleuthing so check back often.

Speaking of my health, my son wants my hubby and me to move in with his family so they can help look after me. He has fixed a room for us. The only thing holding us back is that we need a moving truck for the 1200 mile trip.

My hubby has 22 handcrafted ink pens up for auction on ebay to try to raise the money we need to move. He was totally new to pen turning when he made these pens and I think he did a wonderful job on them. Please take a look at the auctions and if you would like to help with our moving fund by purchasing a pen, I would be very grateful. More pens will be added as they become available so if you don’t see anything you like keep checking.


A wonderful reader purchased all the pens but more will be available soon. I will be offering them here first before listing on ebay. Check back often. We have $300.00 in our moving fund. Our goal is $2000 to cover a Budget truck and car hauler, gas to Texas plus a room for one night on the road.

Thanks to anyone who can help out!
