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.

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are getting married

Posted by loricalabrese on July 14, 2010

The on again-off again relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston is heading for marriage.

After weeks of rumors the two were reconciling, the couple has announced their engagement in the latest issue of Us Weekly.

With or without the approval of the bride’s mother, Sarah Palin, the two say they reconnected about three months ago while working out a custody agreement for their 18-month-old son, Tripp.

“I really thought we were over,” Johnston tells the magazine. But after a walk, Bristol says she was stunned how different her former fiancé was. Later, Johnston texted her: “I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again.” “I was in shock,” Bristol says.

According to the magazine, Johnston and Palin secretly got engaged two weeks ago, which might explain the public apology Johnston issued last week via People magazine, for lying about the Palin family.

After the tumultous relationship Levi has had with Sarah Palin, everyone must wonder what Sarah Palin’s reaction is. “It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be,” Bristol says in the US Weekly issue. “Hopefully she will jump on board.”

In a statement to NBC’s Today Show Wednesday morning, Sarah and Todd Palin said they want what’s best for their kids.

“Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what’s best for our children,” they said. “Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.”

Metaphorically Speaking…

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 27, 2010

Adrienne Ross wrote an excellent, hard-hitting blog this weekend about how Levi Johnston is parlaying lies, attacking his son’s family, and making excuses for not adequately supporting his son. Her post is filled with metaphors, comparing Levi to a dog that won’t lie down and shut up but just keeps running around barking and biting. In her last paragraph, she used the words “put down” metaphorically to say that Levi needs to be told to shut up.

Two of the Sarah Palin-hating blogs intentionally misunderstood Adrienne’s metaphor and tried to spin it as saying that Adrienne wanted to put Levi down as in euthanization. This was the farthest thing from Adrienne’s mind and would be totally inconsistent with the statement she made in the immediately preceding paragraph:

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.

Since the hater blogs chose to misinterpret Adrienne’s metaphor by using a definition for “put down” that is totally inconsistent with Adrienne’s intentions, I decided to check an online dictionary. And here are the meanings for “put down” that are constistent with Adrienne’s intentions.

From Merriam-Webster:

to bring to an end : stop <put down a riot>

disapprove, criticize <was put down for the way she dressed>

to make ineffective : check <put down the gossip>

So Adrienne’s use of the word “put down” was totally appropriate for its context. It is to the haters’ discredit that they attempted to turn an innocent remark into something that it was not.

But then that is what we have come to expect from the evilmongers who habitually use lies and distortions to attack Governor Palin and her family.

Adrienne Ross is a valued member of the excellent team of authors on the Sarah Web Brigade blog and Sarah Palin Information Blog. She is also an author on US4Palin, C4P, and SarahNet. In addition, she is in a leadership position with the 2012 Draft Sarah Palin Committee. Like Sarah Palin, she loves her God and her country and walks the walk with her conservative values.

It is sad to see people so filled with hatred that they will turn the truth into a lie. But that is what is happening on a daily basis on the blogs that attacked Adrienne. However, the truth will prevail, as it always does in the end.

Attack on Conservative Blogger Unwarranted

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 26, 2010

By Tracey Porreca – Finding Myself in Alaska

In the last few days, friend and author Adrienne Ross has been under attack for an article she posted on several blogs, discussing the custody issue between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. The flap revolves around one particular paragraph:

“I believe there’s hope for Levi; I really do. And I hope he grabs a hold 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.” (Read Adrienne’s entire original article here)

As has been pointed out, Ms. Ross is an English teacher and accomplished writer. In their attempt to discredit her writings, they have used this very point against her, saying she should have known how her words would be interpreted. I use that same point, her writing skills, to make this point: she IS an excellent writer. This article was heavily laced with metaphor and idioms, something that seems to be difficult for her attackers to understand.

Others have used similar phrasings to make a point. For example, when President-elect Obama used the term “lipstick on a pig” during a speech, did anyone actually think he was going around with a red lipstick, chasing pigs? The left strongly argued that their idol was merely using an idiom he was familiar with, but others may not be. Another example is the recent flap over Harry Reid’s racially-charged comments, which were made some time ago, and recently came to light after the publication of a political book. Again, the left argued that Mr. Reid was misunderstood and the terms he used were taken out of context. Why should this same understanding not be afforded Ms. Ross?

I have tried to make sense of the far-left’s thinking, but there is no reasoning with it:

Insanity + Internet access = Liberal Blogger

This seems to be the order of the day. Adrienne has been fair and accurate in her writings on this subject. The attacks on her by the far-left are unwarranted and much more aggressive than anything they are accusing Ms. Ross of. The threats of legal action against Ms. Ross are baseless. Law is based on what a reasonable person would do in a situation. Any reasonable person who reads Ms. Ross’ article will understand that she was not directly calling for harm to befall Mr. Johnston; only that Mr. Johnston needs to grow up and own up to his responsibilities – nothing more. Ms. Ross will continue to write, and should. Each of us brings a unique insight into various situations with our writings. Her contributions are valuable and this vitriol must end.

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.

Surprise! Billionaire Obama Supporter Keeping Levi Johnston In The Spotlight

Posted by Gary P Jackson on October 8, 2009

As we have talked about since the election, there has been a coordinated effort by backers of Barack Obama to harm Governor Sarah Palin. We have also talked about the efforts put forth by both candidate, and now President, Barack Obama to do everything in his power to derail Sarah Palin.

We have previously talked about Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia and how Obama and Pete Rouse, his former campaign chief-of -staff and now White House adviser, not only played an active roll in the failed “Troopergate” smear on Sarah Palin, but also actively coordinated the many attacks on Sarah post election, including encouraging the filing of all of the phony-baloney “ethics complaints” against her that would eventually cost the Alaskan taxpayers around $2 million.

Barack Obama even did a little pay-for-play “Chicago Style” payoff to Alaska State Senator Kim Elton for his part in the “Troopergate” smear. After being sworn in, Obama quietly appointed Elton to a make work job over at the Department of Interior. You can read the whole deal, as well as watch the great video that ties the entire mess together in a nice little bow, here.

As you know, Levi Johnston, the poster child for abstinence, and deadbeat dad of the century, is now “staring” in an advertising campaign for nuts. This ad, which also features his “bodyguard” “Tank” Jones, an Alaska private investigator, who works for Alaska attorney Rex Butler, a big Obama supporter, features Levi and “Tank” pretending to be at an “event” and has Levi eating the company’s nut.

Butler, who claims to be Levi’s “manager” is also representing Levi’s mother, who is facing drug trafficking charges.

The seriously cheesy ad, which features Levi in a green t-shirt with “Alaska” on it, (because no one would know who this moron is without it) is set against an all white background with “flash bulbs” going off and “canned” crowd noises while ‘Tank” pretends to “fight back the paparazzi!”

Perfectly pathetic, just like the participants!

Our friend Gregory Tart did some digging into Roll Industries, the parent company behind all of this. On his blog, Gregory reports that:

For months last year, the Huffington Post mocked Sarah Palin over Levi Johnston. The jokes about “meth”, hillbillies, and Bristol Palin was beyond the pale.

Now, Obama backers have launched an equally insidious deal to keep Levi Johnston in the public eye through a promotional campaign by Roll Industries for its nuts products- which seeks to profit from the former relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. Johnston is a spokesman for the Roll’s Paramount Growers division.

Stewart A. Resnick, a billionaire liberal democrat, residing in Los Angeles, is the Chairman of Roll International. Rolls’ business involves agriculture, Fiji Water, and the Franklin Mint. He is also a prime financial backer behind the Democratic Party. His wife Lynda is Godmother to Arianna Huffington’s daughter.

Many have speculated that rich democrats would go to any lengths to keep this character in the public eye to embarrass Sarah Palin. It’s a sad world where the rich can score political points by attacking children to get at the mother.

Rolls International Brands include Sunkist.

Some very interesting points there, for sure. The ties to hate monger Arianna Huffington, whose vile Huffington Post actively and openly promotes hatred toward Sarah Palin are the most interesting, for sure.

In her attempts to constantly smear and spread lies about Sarah Palin, Huffington plucked two Z-list bloggers Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker) from obscurity, and made them feature bloggers on her website. Moore and Devon are charters members of Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia.

One of the things Moore and Devon, along with Linda Kellen Biegel, were quite adept at, was illegally publicizing details of the various “ethics complaints” filed against Governor Palin. In Alaska, it’s illegal to publicize this sort of thing, until the complaint is resolved. Of course, the law has no teeth.

Oddly enough, if you do this and the complaint is against any government official EXCEPT the Governor, the complaint is thrown out. But curiously, not if it’s against the Governor or their staff. Hmmmmm.

Moore and Devon, along with the rest of the Alaska Mafia made great use of this loophole, often having intimate details of the complaints published on their blogs before they were even filed!

Wonder how they were able to do that? Could it be they were the ones writing them for others to file on their behalf?

The complaints, which have all been dismissed, were for ridiculous things like being photographed holding a fish, conducting an interview in her office, receiving cookies as a “bribe,” and wearing a jacket in sub-zero weather!

Linda Kellin Biegel, who was raising funds (possibly illegally) on her website so she could file more ethics complaints, herself, even concocted a conspiracy theory when Sarah went to visit her troops in Kosovo!

Even better, being the constitutional scholar that she is, Biegel, and her Mafia buddies decided that it was “unconstitutional” for Sarah Palin to talk to her troops while visiting them in Kosovo! I kid you not!

Sarah Palin, as Commander-in-Chief of the Alaska National Guard, addressed her troops giving them encouragement and support. Bringing them the best wishes from home.

Such is the depths of depravity these supreme sufferers of Palin Derangement Syndrome are capable of!

Look, the bottom line is this. Barack Obama and his many wealthy supporters know what we know. Sarah Palin is the biggest threat out there to Barack Obama, besides Barack Obama’s own incompetence. They know that she is an incredibly effective politician, see “death panels,” as well as a much loved Conservative figure and leading candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. This has them scared, as it should.

Obama’s billionaire backers like Stewart Resnick and George Soros have an almost endless supply of funds they will use to go after Palin in all sorts of “creative” ways. It must be noted though, that George Soros, whose MoveOn.org claimed “ownership” of the democrat party after the 2006 elections, spent a small fortune between 2000 and 2008 trying to defeat George Bush, to no avail!

As for Levi Johnston, this guy is a flake. Thank goodness Bristol had the good sense to dump this loser. It’s really a sad commentary that this kid would disrespect his son just to make a fast buck.

Levi, a total deadbeat who hasn’t paid one red cent in child support, is the sort person society used to shun. But we are living in the times were losers like this are celebrated, not banished to the ash heap of history. See Roman Polanski, David Letterman, and Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings.

It’s obvious Levi Johnston has no self respect. But you would think this mutt would care about his son, Tripp, enough not to make a spectacle out of himself, but that is just too much to ask, I guess. Levi’s next move is to pose for Playgirl Magazine. I wonder if anyone has told Levi that about 80 percent of the purchasers of Playgirl are gay men?

It looks like Roll Industries, Stewart Resnick, and our President, have found themselves quite the winner in “spokesmodel” Levi Johnston!

Roll International is the parent company for these fine products:

Sunkist Fruit

Teleflora, the largest flower delivery service in the world.

FIJI bottled water

POM pomegranate products.

Paramount citrus and nuts.

Suterra pest control items.

Neptune Pacific Line global shipping company

In-house advertising agency Fire Station, which pays Levi as a pitchman for Rolls’ nuts.

H/T to Josh Painter for being on top of this as well. His is a must read blog.
