Palin Hopes Obama Will Address Need for Domestic Energy Production

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 24, 2010

Complete transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Where’s the Oil in Our National Energy Policy?

 Today at 6:41pm EST

America’s energy challenges are getting more and more serious every day, and yet the Obama administration just doesn’t get it. Please see this informative article that sheds light on one aspect of the president’s problem. It starts by explaining our energy demand will increase, and oil will be part of that demand.

Well, what do you know? The Obama administration, whose entire energy posture going back into the presidential campaign has been both ideologically and practically stridently anti-oil, both as an industry and as a form of energy, has suddenly become “concerned” about China’s oil grab.
 

This is, to say the least, disingenuous.

The U.S. government under Barack Obama has yet to acknowledge once, in spite of widely held estimates, that oil will continue to account for 40% of world energy demand 25 years from now — this while total world energy demand will increase by 50%, at least.
 

 

Read the rest here. I look forward to hopefully hearing President Obama acknowledge America’s need to ramp up domestic energy production, including oil and natural gas developments, during Wednesday’s State of the Union address. Let’s hope his advisers advise him accordingly.

Levi: When Lying Dogs Won’t Sleep; Updated

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 24, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Everyone has heard the expression “let sleeping dogs lie.” Sounds good and is arguably good advice. But what does one do when a lying dog won’t sleep, won’t shut up, that is?

Normally I avoid all things Levi. He’s not worth it right now. Writing about him is a waste of space. He wants the publicity, so don’t give it to him. I totally understand, and usually I’m in agreement. But I also understand a basic principle, and that is this: there’s a time to fight back. There’s a time when you just have to deal with the barking, biting dog that’s been dropping you know what all over the place everywhere he goes. And sometimes you just have to put him out–not just to deal with him–but for the benefit of those he’s sniping at. This particular mutt, who’s been wagging his tail all over Playgirl, refuses to sit down, shut up, or play dead–and this dog is lying every time he opens his mouth.

Levi Johnston has in his camp sensationalist media, foolish Alaska bloggers, and an obviously inebriated, delusional, or severely gullible lawyer. All that, yet he doesn’t seem to have anybody in his life to tell him to put his mouth to sleep when it comes to attacking his son’s family. No positive male role model to pull him aside, tell him to stop his lying, and just take care of his son. Where’s the tough love from somebody who will look him in the eyes and say, “Dude, what are you doing? You’re gonna wake up one day from your greed-induced stupor and wonder how you sunk so low as to try to hurt your son and his mom and grandmother like this, and that’s gonna be a sad day–for you.”

Every time you turn around, Levi’s parked on somebody’s couch, making mono-syllabic statements about the Palins. And for some reason, he’s absolutely obsessed with the Governor. Constantly he’s saying she’s attacking him so he’s going to attack back. Funny thing is, his jaws are the only ones flapping.

Levi, my dawg, shut up your lying. Man up. And please…pay up.

Concerning paying up, according to TMZ:

Levi Johnston’s manager, Tank Jones, tells TMZ Levi has paid Bristol more than $10,000 since Tripp was born. Jones also says Levi does not make money off of every interview he does, though he did not say exactly how much Levi has made.

Levi has not given Bristol $10,000. Levi has not had an active role in his son’s first year of life.

TMZ also reported:

Attorney Rex Butler tells TMZ, Levi has told Bristol on several occasions he wanted her to come to his house to pick up checks for Tripp’s support. Butler says Levi also told her “it would be nice” if she brought Tripp along when she picked up the checks, because Levi wanted to spend time with his son. Butler says on each occasion Bristol was a no-show.

Butler says Bristol is partly to blame for the fact that she hasn’t gotten the support she wants. Butler tells TMZ on one occasion Levi was prepared to hand over $3,000 … but Bristol never showed.

As for why Levi didn’t just put the check in the mail … Butler says, “Why should he have to do that. He’s not dangerous to her.”

So let’s get this straight. Levi loves his son so much that he’d rather give no money at all than put a stamp on an envelope and mail a check? Instead of being a father to his son and providing for him, he’d rather speculate that Governor Palin is behind the legal suit and talk about Bristol’s new car. Can you say “dog”? Can you say “lying dog”? If that seems harsh, it’ll just have to be harsh because one thing I can’t stand is a man–that’s right, he’s not a little boy anymore–who won’t take care of his responsibilities and then lies about it.

You know when tabloids are calling you deadbeat, you’ve got some stepping up to do. ETonline writes:

In an exclusive interview with ET, Levi says he believes he has given Bristol more than she claims. “I don’t really know but my lawyer does. But it’s reasonable, what he thought was fair. For them to call me a deadbeat dad’s absurd. I attempt to call her all the time and give her texts to make sure he’s doing well … I call her all the time. I try and do everything I can to see my son. I’m making an effort. I’m trying to be there for him.”

“I don’t really know”? “Reasonable”? “Attempt”? “Try”? “Effort”? Huh? Your lawyer knows what you’re giving your son?! Growing up in the church we used to sing a song called “99 1/2 Won’t Do.” Look, if 99 1/2 won’t do, you know 1/2 ain’t gonna do!

Bristol, on the other hand, is to be commended. She is taking care of her responsibilities. Here’s a young woman who, as she recently told Oprah, gets up at 4:00 or 4:30 every morning, gets her son washed and dressed, works, and takes classes. It’s not easy. It’s a challenge, but Tripp is her life now, and she is committed to being a good mother to him, not a “reasonable” one.

What does she get in return? The love of her beautiful baby and the joy of knowing she’s making a life for her son.

Her ex-boyfriend, however, is traipsing around the country making money by selling his soul–and his lies, gallivanting around Wasilla in his new truck and new trinket (hmmm…), and refusing to buy his son so much as a pair of shoes because his little feelings are hurt that Bristol wouldn’t come to his house. In the Black community, we have a word for that. Let me hip yall to it. It’s called “triflin’.” Of course, the community at large is well aware of the more familiar term: low-down dirty dog.

Tripp deserves better. Bristol deserves better. She’s working her tail off for her son, she’s learned from some mistakes she’s made, and she’s committed herself to doing the right thing by remaining abstinent until marriage, to which Levi barks, “I doubt it.” (The daily reminder of men like Levi might be the biggest asset to the abstinence movement ever!) By the way, instead of a “role model” like Oprah Winfrey commending her for that decision, she blasted her and gave her a chance to retract it. Are you kidding me?! (I’ll deal with Oprah at another time.)

The last thing I want to do is spend a Sunday on Levi Johnston. However, I’ll spend a hundred Sundays on the opportunity to applaud Bristol Palin for doing the mature, responsible thing–the hard work. She’s a good mom, who has another good mom as an example.

I believe there’s hope for Levi; I really do. And I hope he grabs ahold of it soon because he’s treading on very thin Alaska ice.

Like I said at the start, there’s something to be said for letting sleeping dogs lie. But when a lying dog refuses to put his rabid mouth to sleep, sometimes you just have to put that dog down.

Update: Anyone asserting that I am suggesting Levi should be killed is out of his/her mind. By “put that dog down” I mean put him in his place, call him out, fight back instead of letting sleeping dogs lie. Hello!

Why the Lies, Levi?

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 24, 2010

Like many of you, I have wondered why Levi Johnston would turn his back on and even attack the loving family that had embraced him as one of their own in spite of the less than ideal circumstances involved. I wondered if it was merely the lure of fame and fortune or if he was being manipulated by those who wish to destroy Sarah Palin politically. Were his actions or at least the income from them a payoff for his mother’s legal expenses, I wondered. Was he so naïve that he did not realize that he was being used as a political tool by his handlers? Sometimes I even felt sorry for him because of the manipulations as well as his troubled homelife.

But then I saw this article, and I realized that, regardless of the original reasons behind his behavior, all of the publicity had gone to Levi’s head.

Now that Levi Johnston has completed his much-hyped Playgirl photo shoot, the Alaskan teen apparently thinks that he and his “little Wasilla” are deserving of special treatment. Johnston, the father of Sarah Palin’s grandson Tripp, made a bit of a scene at JFK airport on Tuesday, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

Embarrassed onlookers told Page Six that Johnston showed up at the airport wearing sunglasses (hey, it’s bright inside the terminal) and would not deign to stand in line with the rest of the lowly passengers — which included Jason Alexander, who could probably buy and sell Johnston more times than the 19 year old can count.

“(Johnston) then made a big show of getting on first,” one witness told Page Six. “He was seated in the front row of first class, looking like he was born to be there and waiting for some recognition. Jason Alexander was quietly sitting behind him.”

Perhaps Levi’s character was already flawed, or perhaps his handlers showered him with delusions of grandeur if he did their bidding. But we now see a man of the world who is unknowingly bent on self-destruction as he pursues his own self-promotion. Not only was his Playgirl shoot a lapse in morality, but his recent behavior in general has provided a poor role model for his young son. What is the legacy that Levi will leave to Tripp – that of a porn star or that of a loving, responsible father? So far, Levi has made the former choice – I hope and pray he comes to his senses and chooses the latter.

But what about the lies that Levi continues to propagate? I think the most infamous one was when he stated that Sarah Palin asked him to show her how to shoot a rifle. There is ample documentation of Governor Palin’s hunting and fishing abilities, from her childhood on up. There is even a video in which she hits the target dead center on her first try with a military assault weapon. Quite an achievement for someone who doesn’t hunt or fish or know how to shoot a gun, wouldn’t you say?

Levi’s latest lies are his claims about supporting his son in excess of what Bristol has reported in her court documents asking for the minimum amount of child support that is required by Alaska state law – 20 % of Levi’s income. If Levi’s claims are true, then where is the documentation? None has been mentioned, or promised, because there is none.

Contrast Levi’s lifestyle to the one that Bristol has chosen. A single mom now, she has chosen to devote her life to raising her son Tripp. Rather than go away to school like many young women her age, she is going to the community college and working to support her son at the same time. Her mornings begin at 4 to 4:30 AM, and she has been an excellent mother. Small wonder that she would not want Tripp exposed to Levi’s immoral lifestyle.


Not only is Bristol taking her parenting seriously, but she is serving as a role model for other young women through her involvement with Candies and her own vow of abstinence until marriage. She went on the Oprah show on Friday to discuss her decision and took heat not only from Oprah but from Levi for her admirable position on this topic that affects all unmarried people.

Bristol has even set up her own public relations firm, probably in relation to her work with Candies. This young woman is going somewhere in life, but she is doing it honorably and through hard work. Tripp will have cause to take pride in his mother’s achievements and in the example that she is setting for him.

Bristol could easily have made other choices. But she didn’t, and that speaks to the strong character that she has developed as a member of a wholesome, loving family. A family that she remains an integral part of and which provides the support system she and Tripp need. Tripp is in the best possible hands right where he is and should not have his secure existence disturbed by someone of questionable morals who puts fame above family responsibilities.

Bristol Palin Stands Up and Does the Right Thing

Posted by Ron Devito on January 24, 2010

Our support of Governor Palin extends to her family, friends, loved ones, and even her contractors. When we see her family is being wronged, we will address it. The world by now is well aware of the relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston; that their union resulted in a child; and that the relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston broke. We’ve all seen the salacious coverage of this matter. Some very simple points to keep in mind:

  • Bristol Palin is up for significant parts of the night caring for Tripp.
  • Bristol Palin goes to school and works to support Tripp.
  • Bristol Palin appropriately marshals the resources available to her (the Palins and Heaths) in caring for her child.
  • Bristol Palin has learned from her mistakes and has stood up and done the right thing.

This was discussed in her interview with Oprah Winfrey on Friday, January 22, 2010, and on other talk shows such as On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, and in print publications such as InTouch and People Magazine.

In contrast,

  • Levi Johnston is completely shirking his responsibilities as a father. He is providing nothing for Bristol and Tripp.
  • Levi Johnston is not doing any legitimate work.
  • Levi Johnston by posting for Playgirl engaged in acts of grave moral turpitude and disgraced himself as a father before an international audience.
  • Levi Johnston is being subsidized by the Roll Corporation, Rex Butler and Tank Jones for the sole and express purpose of bringing shame and embarrassment to the Palins, which has been discussed at significant length in prior entries by author Gary P. Jackson.

Bristol Palin took ownership and responsibility for her prior actions. She stood up and did the right thing, choosing life over a “more convenient alternative.” Her entire focus now is on caring for her child, working, educating herself — and she is refraining from new relationships for she wants nothing to interfere with her responsibilities. The differences between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston could not be more stark.

With Bristol as his mother, and in the company of the Palins and Heaths, Tripp Johnston is a healthy, loving, and supportive environment.
