Liberals can’t handle the truth about Sarah Palin, so they lie.

The political left cannot handle the truth about Sarah Palin so they consistently bear false witness against the first woman to be both governor of Alaska and the vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party.

For example, the leftist blogs are regurgitating a bogus Democrat talking point that the book signing at Minnesota’s Mall of America was poorly attended. Sewer blog Wonkette and its fellow travelers in the leftosphere are prevaricating, as they are inclined to do every time they put up a post about Gov. Palin and her family, when they claim that “only 300 people showed up to attend the Sarah and Bristol Palin book signing of Bristol’s new memoir… The family abandoned the stage half an hour before the end of the time slot because there was nobody left.”

That’s the lie. However, the Associated Press, a media institution which has not exactly been friendly to Gov. Palin, reported:

“The mall estimates about 1,500 people turned out…”

1500 people showed up for the signing? But, but, but… that would mean that leftists are lying when they insist that only 300 turned out.

Let’s check another source. According to local television station KSTP-TV:

“A crowd at Mall of America waited hours to see ex-Alaska governor Sarah Palin, her husband Todd, their daughter Bristol and her son Tripp.”

Video retrieved from devitor on VodPod.

The crowd “waited hours” to see Gov. Palin and her family? How can that be, when the “progressive” prevaricators claim that few showed up and nobody stayed? Who are you going to believe, liberals or your lying eyes and ears?

Here’s a third source. From the account by local CBS affiliate WCCO-TV:

“People lined up throughout the day at the Mall of America in Bloomington as Bristol Palin made an appearance for her new memoir…”

Throughout the day? My, my. There you have no less than three independent sources that expose the liberal lie for what it is.

The source for the bottom-feeding bloggers’ bullsh*t offensive seems to be a disingenuous account posted by Jessica Lussenhop at the untrustworthy site City Pages. According to her Linked In profile, Lussenhop attended the “Academy for Alternative Journalism” and the leftist Journolister factory otherwise know as the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Oh, and she also did some time at Ms. Magazine. No agenda-driven distortion by Ms. Lussenhop, no ma’am.

So why the lie? Even if a lefty journo hates Sarah Palin with a purple passion, why intentionally write a dishonest account of something as relatively pedestrian as a book signing and then put your name behind it? There’s just one logical conclusion. It’s not just hate at work here, but fear as well. The left is so afraid of Sarah Palin as a potential threat to the faux socialist utopia they are clumsily constructing that they will do literally anything, even lie their sorry butts off, to maintain the narrative that she does not enjoy the popular support that we see displayed for her everywhere she goes.

It’s not that the left cannot recognize the truth about Sarah Palin. They just can’t handle it. So they tell lies about her. If they weren’t so evil they’d be pathetic.

Bristol Palin conveys a simple truth in her new memoir

Posted by loricalabrese on June 27, 2011

Would you want your teenage years broadcast to the world? Probably not. Just fessing up to some of your teenage mistakes would send the blood rushing to your cheeks, however, for Bristol Palin, it just comes with the territory.

The world has witnessed Bristol Palin transform from unwed teenage mom to a finalist on Dancing with the Stars to a highly valued spokesperson for teenage pregnancy. In her new memoir, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, we learn even more about Bristol Palin as she is remarkably candid about her teenage mistakes and problems.

Even before its release, you probably read snippets of the book, specifically how Palin referred to Levi as a ‘gnat’ and somebody who cheated on her “as frequently as he sharpened his hockey states.” And of course the mentions of Meghan McCain, which had media outlets foaming at the mouth for a public catfight. But besides the usual soundbites that the media have eaten up, the book delves into the life of a teenager who is not only navigating the world of love and heartbreak, but also politics and stardom.

Bottom line and what most readers will take away from the book is that Bristol Palin was a teenager who fell in love and became blind to the bad boy prone to romps with other girls and disrespect to her family. You’ll be reassured that the combustible relationship that played out on the worldwide stage was very similar to a Jerry Springer episode and although you’ll find yourself asking, “When is this girl going to realize that this guy is not good for her?,” you’ll also admire the fortitude of a girl who isn’t afraid of taking on life’s imperfection. Palin even realizes the complexity of her own life with some self-deprecating humor (my life had become a Jerry Springer episode, and a bad one at that”).

It was fascinating to read about Palin’s time at the Governor’s mansion and what happened behind the scenes at the 2008 Presidential race from the eyes of a teenager, but I think what stood out for me most was Palin’s insight on how sexual standards are vitally important for a person’s sense of well-being. Although most of America welcomes reformed drug addicts to share their story, they look at an unwed teenage mom as a ‘hypocrite giving unrealistic advice.’ It’s really unfortunate because although Palin admits to making “pretty foolish decisions,” she has also used her situation to warn other teen girls about having sex before they’re married. The reason Palin says she shared her story was to convey a simple truth to the teens and adults who are out there reading the book—that if you have made a sexual mistake, you don’t have to fully give in to that sin. This from a 20-year-old, who realizes she hasn’t always “walked the walk” when it comes to standards, but isn’t going to be burdened by the bad decisions that have previously haunted her.

“Making mistakes and dealing with them, suffering pain and longing for a better day…that’s just all a part of life,” Palin writes.

Even though most of us haven’t had our mistakes play out on national TV, that’s something we can all relate to, wrestling with the indignities, pain and disappointments of life.

I’m shocked to read the many reviews out there that discredit Palin’s affect on one of the most important issues in our nation—teen pregnancy. For instance, The Washington Post writes, “If Palin truly counts herself among the most famous of women who have been wronged, and she really does want to help young adults avoid making similar mistakes, then it’s sad she couldn’t put her celebrity to more positive use.” Let’s see, Palin has become a spokesperson for the Candie’s Foundation, has appeared on television and in magazines to talk about waiting to have sex until marriage, has shot PSA’s stressing the importance of teen abstinence, has hit the speaker circuit to share her tale and has now contributed her new memoir to warn other teen girls about having sex before they’re married. What else is she expected to do? It seems to me that this 20-year-old has done so much to help teenagers avoid a similar situation by making her teenage mistakes and problems public , something I dare anyone out there to do.

Bristol’s Book: Levi is ‘the gnat’ & a self-involved slacker

Posted by joshpainter on June 18, 2011

- by Josh Painter
*
Bristol Palin’s new book, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far tells a story of “deception and disappointment,” according to AP television writer Frazier Moore’s article in the entertainment section of the Washington Examiner. But the book also chronicles how the 20-year old single mother learned how to face those challenges “head-on with courage and grace,” says HarperCollins.

The memoir, co-written with Nancy French, is scheduled for publication by William Morrow next week. The Associated Press purchased a copy Friday.

Palin’s book covers growing up with her family, which she portrays affectionately, and the excitement of her mother’s political life as governor and then, in 2008, as the GOP vice presidential candidate. But the main theme is her on-and-off-again relationship with Johnston, with whom she had a child and was briefly engaged while caught in a media spotlight.

She blasts him as “the gnat named Levi Johnston constantly spreading false accusations against our family” and calls him a self-involved slacker “who cheated on me about as frequently as he sharpened his hockey skates.”

But Palin, self-described as a good girl and straight-A student, had been drawn to him and his bad-boy manner from the time they met in seventh grade.

[...]

Only by the eighth home pregnancy test, she writes, was she convinced of the positive results.

When she told her parents, they were accepting, not condemning, she writes, and focused on the future, particularly her continuing education.

Johnston’s reaction wasn’t so reassuring: “Better be a (bleeping) boy,” he declared.

[More]

Wow, what a stand up guy! Not exactly the poster boy for Father’s Day…

Once Bristol accepted the fact that Johnston could not be relied upon to be a faithful husband and responsible father to their son, she dumped him and started concentrating on building a life for herself and Tripp. Once an assistant in a dentist’s office in Anchorage, she went on to become a Candies Foundation teen ambassador, a motivational speaker, and a contestant on “Dancing With The Stars.” She made a good real estate investment which should soon provide her with rental income, and she’s set to co-star in a new television series on the Bio channel. Bristol Palin has come a long way, baby, and she’s discover that not only is there life after Levi, but it beats life with Levi hands down.

BIO Channel Greenlights Bristol Palin Docu-Series

Posted by joshpainter on May 9, 2011

Here’s the press release from BIO, one of the A&E networks:

BIO has ordered ten half-hour episodes of an untitled Bristol Palin/Massey brothers docu-series from Associated Television International, it was announced today by David McKillop, Executive Vice President, Programming, A&E Network and BIO Channel. The series follows Bristol Palin’s move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity in need while living with her good friends Chris and Kyle Massey. The series is slated to air in late 2011.

She’s the most famous single mother in America. And she became a national media darling during her odds-defying, ratings record-breaking run on “Dancing with the Stars.” Now as Bristol Palin gears up for her work in this charity, she is allowing cameras exclusive access into her personal life for the first time.

While on “Dancing,” Bristol became extremely close with fellow contestant, actor Kyle Massey. Since the show, Bristol, Kyle, and Kyle’s brother, actor Christopher Massey, have become best friends; so much so, that since Bristol and Tripp have to move to Los Angeles for her new job, she decides to move in with the Massey brothers who are also about to realize how much their lives are about to change.

“Bristol is the kind of personality BIO is drawn to,” said McKillop. “Her personal life has been playing out in the media for several years but this will be the first time she’s opening up her real life, with her son and her friends the Massey Brothers.“

The untitled project is produced by Associated Television International for BIO. David McKenzie and Jim Romanovich serve as executive producers for Associated Television International. David McKillop, Tom Moody and Andy Berg serve as the executive producers for BIO.

This news is sure to detonate any remaining unexploded leftist heads in the Palinophobes’ alternate universe…

Bristol Palin’s book due out in June

Posted by traceyporreca on April 15, 2011

Bristol Palin, daughter of Gov. Sarah Palin, is now a published author! Her book titled “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far” is due to be released June 21 and can be preordered now. It will be available in hardcover, Kindle, and CD audio versions. Amazon gives this description:

Product Description

She is as polarizing and nearly as popular as her mom, and now millions of fans of Bristol Palin, daughter of former Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, will hear what life is really like for this twenty year old single mother of a two year old boy. For the first time, Bristol shares the intimate behind the scenes drama in her life, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age when her mother begins to rise in the political landscape, from dealing with a teen pregnancy in the spotlight of the Republican National Convention to coping as a single mother when her relationship with her baby’s father crumbles publicly, not once, but twice. The tabloids have had a heyday with Bristol and yet she’s never spoken at length to the press about any of these high profile events, including how she maintained her composure when she faced criticism and even threats of physical violence as a contestant and finalist on Dancing with the Stars. An advocate for young girls everywhere Bristol will delve into all of these topics and more. From body image to the Tea Party, how does one very young woman under the glare of an often nasty media spotlight handle the pressure without losing her mind, her faith, and her friends?

About the Author

Bristol first entered the national spotlight when her mother, former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin was selected to be John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 Presidential election. Bristol traveled the country alongside her mother, father and siblings on the campaign trail. After giving birth to her son Tripp, and becoming a single teen mother in 2008, Palin became a spokesperson for the prevention of teen pregnancy and other teen issues. As an advocate for the protection of life, Palin wanted to share her story with other teens who may one day face a similar situation. Palin also acts as Teen Ambassador for The Candie’s Foundation, to prevent teen and unplanned pregnancy. As part of her campaign, Palin recently guest starred as herself on an episode of ABC Family’s teenage drama The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Palin resides in Alaska with her son and family.

Alaskans4Palin congratulates Bristol on this new journey in her life!

Candie’s Foundation Statement on Bristol Palin Compensation

Posted by joshpainter on April 7, 2011

- by Josh Painter

The leftists and their media lapdogs have their panties all in a bunch over the fact that Bristol Palin was well paid by The Candies Foundation as a teen ambassador. In response to their whining, the foundation has released this statement:

For ten years, The Candie’s Foundation has been working to prevent teen pregnancy by producing and funding celebrity-driven print, television, radio and online public service announcements. Ms. Palin was compensated for her work with the foundation, which included appearing in video and print PSAs, two town hall meetings, and numerous media interviews.

The message of the foundation about teen pregnancy prevention has generated more than ONE BILLION media impressions – tremendous reach for any teen pregnancy prevention campaign. We know that Ms. Palin’s work has had a positive effect on teens. In a recent independent national survey of 1,000 teens that compared a Bristol Palin PSA with those of another national teen pregnancy organization that use non-famous teens, more than twice as many teens (57% vs. 27%) said Bristol’s PSA “got my attention”, three times as many (41% vs. 11%) said it was “powerful”, and more than twice as many (38% vs. 16%) said it was “memorable”.

Bristol Palin is one of dozens of celebrities who has worked with the foundation. She has been a courageous and powerful partner to the foundation as we attempt to discourage teen pregnancy.

Curious, is it not, how the left loses its mud because a non-profit organization, which depends on donations freely given, paid Bristol Palin in six figures. Yet these same leftists think it’s all right that millions of dollars of taxpayer money is being used to kill innocent infants in the womb. That’s what passes for morality on the left these days.

Teens flock to California church to hear Bristol Palin

Posted by joshpainter on February 13, 2011

- by Josh Painter

The Whittier Daily News reports that teens from across the Southwest made their way to Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Arcadia, California Saturday to hear Bristol Palin speak about the dangers facing today’s youth:

The speech was part of Lovefest, an annual two-day church event that focuses on teens and values. The event held in a church tent familiar to the revival circuit, where youngsters listened to Palin’s speech.

From there, the children broke into smaller classes to focus on a array of teen issues – from dating to safely navigating the Internet.

Palin was brought in to serve as a role model and to talk candidly about her experience as a teenage mom. Children came from across Southern California and from as far away as Nevada, church officials said.

“She came right out and said, `I’ve been criticized and called an hypocrite because I was taking a stance on abstinence and I said I don’t want you to go through this,”‘ said Dave Sweeney, co-founder of the Love Fest. “She implored young people to not to listen to those who say abstinence is not a big deal.”

[...]

“We didn’t want this to turn into a political event,” said Roger Sonnenberg, pastor of Our Saviour Lutheran Church.

But there was no denying the effect of Palin’s star power on the children.

“I liked her story and the way she presented her opinion without forcing her ideas on us,” said Haley Gould, 17, of Glendora.

John Hayward: Bristol Palin Is Uninvited

Posted by joshpainter on January 28, 2011

- by Josh Painter
*
John Hayward weighs in on the recent episode of what Jonah Goldberg rightly calls Liberal Fascism at Washington University that we wrote about here and here:

The nominal reason given by the campus conformity police was that inviting Palin to speak would be too expensive.

[...]

A November 2010 report from the Student Life newspaper at Washington University said that the Green Action environmentalist group paid disgraced Obama cabinet member Van Jones a $5000 honorarium, which is the maximum allowed for appeals made over the summer. Green Action tried to get another $2500 for him, but the Student Union Treasury voted them down. If Van Jones is worth five to seven thousand dollars, Bristol Palin for $20,000 is the deal of the century…

[...]

Another claim made by the campus left is that Palin was “too controversial” to speak, a consideration that obviously doesn’t apply to people like Van Jones. You can see how a young mother discussing the perils of teen pregnancy would be more controversial than the views of a self-described Communist who was run out of the most radical Administration in modern history, because he entertained the notion that George Bush was the real villain behind the 9/11 attacks.

Elevating this line of reasoning to totalitarian art, Sean Janda wrote in Student Life that Palin’s appearance would “fundamentally shift the discourse that this event will create. Instead of discussing issues regarding abstinence in college, students will discuss the suitability of Ms. Palin as a keynote speaker. In this way, Ms. Palin’s appearance will suppress dialogue about the issues that Sex Week is meant to address and, instead, spark dialogue about Treasury’s use of its money.”

In other words, because the campus left is mad with hatred at the Palin family, her presence would be too much of a distraction. Their resistance automatically makes her too controversial to be allowed to speak, which means anyone they really dislike would instantly hit the same level of controversy, and be silenced. I don’t know what else is being taught at Washington U, but Sean Janda seems to understand fascism pretty well.

[...]

Palin’s place on the Student Sexual Responsibility Week panel will be taken by Dr. Katie Plax, an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Washington University. I doubt she’ll pull the kind of crowds Bristol would have, since she’ll be walking across the quad to deliver her presentation. A May 2009 profile of Dr. Plax from the Washington University Newsroom mentions that she is the recipient of a two-year fellowship from the Soros Foundation, and actively campaigned for Barack Obama in the 2008 election. She sounds like someone the campus-left cowards will be more comfortable with.

David Kahane: ‘I Hate You, Bristol Palin’

Posted by joshpainter on January 5, 2011

Satirist Michael Walsh, writing under the pen persona of his evil progressive twin “David Kahane,” has authored another howler for NRO. Excerpt:

Okay, I’ve just about had it with you people. Yes, I’m talking to you, the Palin family of Moosewhack Village, Bumblefork County, Alaska, USA, Earth, Universe. I mean, who in the name of old Joe Hill are you to be constantly coming into my living room unannounced and uninvited?

It was bad enough when the most unqualified person in American life — I’m talking to you, Sarah — had the effrontery to run for vice president. It got even worse when, after your well-deserved shellacking at the hands of the most qualified person in America — that would be His Exalted Majesty, the Emperor Barack Hussein Obama II, Lord of the Flies, Master of the Hoops, and Keeper of the Holy Cities of Honolulu and Chicago — you refused to slink off into the obscurity of the Arctic Standard Time Zone, or whatever that place is called where the sun don’t shine. Now you even have your own reality show, on which no moose or caribou is safe.

But while you’re banging away at the wildlife population and then popping their remains in a pot for dinner, you’ve bequeathed us Bristol, little miss Dancing with the Stars and now the proud owner of some choice Arizona real estate, to carry on the family tradition of driving us nuts.

Listen to me: It’s just not right that you Palins are using the trash culture we’ve so lovingly created against us — that was meant to inflict Britney Spears on your wingnut families, not to blast us with Bristol. Teenaged unwed mother? Check. Tabloid fodder? Check. Famous for being famous? Check. Normally, we would endorse all those things, just as, in a rational world, we would embrace Mama Grizzly for her “compelling personal narrative,” as the Finemans of the media like to call it.

But, of course, we don’t. Because we can’t. Because to do so would mean the end of our carefully maintained double standard — and the minute you folks on the right no longer accept your second-class status in the moral pecking order, we are finished.

Bristol Palin becomes a homeowner… in Arizona

Posted by joshpainter on December 24, 2010

- by Josh Painter
*
Bristol Palin, Todd and Sarah’s eldest daughter (at the ripe old age of 20), now owns a home in Maricopa, a Phoenix suburb in the Gila River Valley of Pinal County, according to a report by The Arizona Republic’s John Faherty:

Public records show the home was built in 2006 and bought for $329,560. It went into foreclosure in January of this year.

The home was then purchased in May for $137,200 by Michael and Cynthia Smith, a couple from North Dakota, as an investment.

They fixed it up and put it back on the market.

Bristol Palin bought it this month for $172,000 in cash.

[...]

“I’m not sure why she wanted to buy that home, but we are real happy for her,” said Michael Smith, 55.

“She seems like a nice girl. We’re excited for her.”

[More]

Bristol’s mom, Faherty observes, has been a frequent visitor to Arizona since she first met with Sen. John McCain at his ranch in Sedona to discuss joining his ticket in the 2008 presidential election. Now she has a place to stay for future visits to The Grand Canyon State.
