About that confrontation between Todd Palin and Levi Johnston. Another confirmation of my Splitsville post!

"We can do what we want. Nobody dares to rat us out!"
One of the risks you run when you post articles based on information from sources speaking only to you, and that other media outlets may not be able to confirm, is that it opens you up to charges of rumor mongering or, as Palin likes to charge, "makin' things up."

As most of you know I have been accused of that quite a few times.

However this last e-mail dump has been very helpful in FINALLY providing some validation for previous posts, that up until now were considered questionable by certain people.

In my August 2009 post "Splitsville," I was the first person to publicize trouble in the Palin marriage, that the Palins had screaming fights, and that Sarah was shopping around for a radio gig (Which in fact turned out to be a television gig with Fox News.), all of which have since been confirmed by various books and newspaper articles.

However some of what I talked about in that post was NEVER confirmed, and may never be confirmed, by other media outlets, like Sarah's wedding ring resting on the bottom of Lake Lucille, or the land purchase in Montana.

However there was ONE story that I had been assured was about to break in another publication, and which never did, that I have been particularly troubled by. And that is the alleged confrontation between Levi Johnston and Todd Palin.

This is how I described it in the post:

I also learned that there was an incident back in the summer of 2008, before the McCain campaign officially tapped Sarah, where Todd Palin pulled a gun on Levi in a heated exchange concerning his relationship with Bristol. This news will be hitting the local papers here in town next week. Stay tuned.

Now as you all know that story never did come out, and in fact was also left out of Levi's book.

So reasonable people may have assumed that in fact it did not take place.

But then Palin's final treasure trove of e-mails were released. And guess what?

IMO - to use internet slang - the best thing the guv could do right now is make good with local media, not seem to be the vp candidate that won’t go away, to quote chris matthews on hardball last night, this thing about the levi/bristol situation isn’t our making, and i’d prefer that young people’s relationships not be newsworthy, but we both know that it is. if it matters at all, i’d love a sitdown one-on-one interview with the guv, no questions about the kids asked, just policy and governance; consider that a formal request, but the stuff i’m referring to now is something that’s gonna be out no matter what you say to local journos, i’m not driving this bus

Subject: Re: inquiry 

Interesting comment from Chris Matthews, who I talked to on the phone today regarding his willingness to go to any lengths, including Alaska, to get an interview with the governor. There’s a lot of hypocrisy in comments like that. Everyone wants to talk to her, no matter how much they trash her for speaking to someone else. Campbell Brown did the same thing. It would be funny if it weren’t so mean-spirited. 

The governor wants to have a relationship with local media, and just got done giving an interview to Channel 2. 

So let me be clear: you’re asking me to respond to something the details of which you’re not going to share? You might consider the possibility that I really don’t know what you’re talking about. But just in case, what’s your direct phone line, or cell phone, whichever is best to reach you? 

That is where the e-mail ends concerning this particular story, but I doubt that McAllister responded further. Instead he probably contacted Palin and they performed the Alaska version of damage control.

There is only one other e-mail string that I can find between McAllister and Brendan Joel Kelley, and that was one that took place three days later concerning John Ziegler. (It is also interesting that Brendan talks about a phone conversation he had with Palin in between these two sets of e-mails.)

 Now as I am sure that many of you already know, my source on this story was Tank Jones, who obviously got his information directly from Levi.  And the journalist who was supposed to publish the story was the above mentioned Brendan Joel Kelley.

However the interview with Levi came out in the Anchorage Press on August 6. 2009, sans the confrontation story between Levi and Todd. I e-mailed Brendan about it and he said that at the last minute Levi had refused to go on the record. However he did confirm that he heard the same story that I had.

Now a couple of things.

In the e-mail Brendan is talking about a confrontation that JUST happened. This was back in January, and it is VERY unlikely that Brendan got this story from Levi, who was extremely suspicious and closed mouth in those days, so that means he got the story from another source.

He also claims that he is NOT the only news outlet working the story, and further states, "but the stuff i’m referring to now is something that’s gonna be out no matter what you say to local journos, i’m not driving this bus." However, regardless of who had it besides Brendan, the story was clearly squashed.

I am also aware that in MY version of the story it took place in the summer, but according to Brendan it had just happened in January. That is a minor quibble (But I did just check my notes and I wrote it down as taking place in the summer), though it actually makes more sense that it happened around the time that Bristol unceremoniously kicked Levi to the curb which (According to Levi's book) was on January the 8th.

I am not sure exactly HOW Palin manages to bully people, as well as the press, into keeping these stories quiet (Especially these days!), but it is worth noting that to this day the ONLY place to write about this story, which remember various news agencies were pursuing, was right here on IM.

And for refusing to allow myself to be intimidated by the Palins I suffered no end of verbal abuse and attacks on my character.  And as Paul Harvey used to say, "Now you know the rest of the story."

    Interesting - Todd assaulted Levi on January 3, 2009 - that's the Saturday before this e-mail.

    Threatening someone with a weapon is considered assault.

    Too bad he was never charged with assault with a deadly weapon - THAT should have made headlines..


    I wonder why he attacked? Is it because Levi was threatening to tell the truth about Tripp's and Trig's birthdays?

    Surely this has something to do with the 12 page redacted e-mail re: Levi and Custody.

    hi sarah - good morning, how's the internet connection up north? i loved your rambling message to your minions at grizzy fest - do you read their comments too? man, they're a little weird, aren't they? they still think you're going to run! it's hilarious.

    love the way your dad jumped in on the phone too, kind of like when I call home at thanksgiving and they put my crazy uncle on the phone.

    anywho, I don't think it's very swell of you to lead those crazies on. I no you justify it to yourself by saying it's a free country, you told them you weren't running, etc, etc, but c'mon, some of those people seem really unstable, they're comparing you to bible-characters and ending their posts with "friends in Sarah". weird, doncha think?

    Summer 2008? During the time when Sarah was asking Todd about an August wedding for Levi and Bristol, the time that they all spent lots of time out of Wasilla?
    Hmmm, could have been something, as I'm sure Todd's disapproval for Levi skyrocketed even more (if thats possible) once the pregnancy was announced.

    If Brendan is correct and it was a Saturday, that would make it Jan 3rd, wouldn't it? BRISTOL reported in her book they broke up like DAYS after Tripp was born, after speaking of endless fights between the "love" birds, though those occurred since they hooked up in 2007.

    Another question: did Levi EVER work on the slope? And I fully believe Todd had a huge blowup after witnessing numerous fights between the teens. I think Bristol probably did accuse Levi of cheating, I think Bristol probably did believe the rumors of Levi's 2nd child (the one Sarah mentioned around the same time).

    This would all make Todd pissy and make a blowup eminent.

There are lots of actual events that seem to disprove that specific post. There are emails that paint a different picture. There are examples of people in the family (extended) that condemn Levi as a fame seeking ahole in August 09. August was when everyone turned on Levi and he became "Valley trash". They were pissed he lied about Trig being called retarded and for just being what Levi's always been called.

    How is a post from 2009 relevant Gryphen? How does it prove anything that is presently happening? Some of your more recent posts have killed your credibility tremendously. I know you're going to refute my comment by saying "read this post" but that doesn't make me wrong. You've told blatant lies (due to source ignorance). Many things never came to fruition and never were true just based on common sense and using one's eyes.

    But I stick to the above question. Why does a 2009 incident matter in 2012? It doesn't change the fact that Bristol hated Levi back then and never truly lost that hatred. It doesn't change the fact that Sarah resigned, her and Todd buying property in Alaska hoping for a media gig. It doesn't change anything.

    3 years have passed since this alleged incident. In those 3 years, the Palins moved on from the beginning and Levi appears to be JUST now moving on.

It seems to me - Todd is the one who has been pulling all the strings, probably as some front for AIP, to get as many AIP members into Main Stream politics under the GOP label as possible - voila, AIP Fundie Extremists in power - local, Statewide, ie Palin's political appointees and hirees in State government.

    Who couldn't believe that there was a confrontation between Todd and Levi. Todd has been seen on camera to be a bully.

    People can see the dynamic of those Palins everytime they prance to some function with Todd acting like a diva's bodyguard, calling his wife by her full name, not addressing her as his wife.

    It's obvious something happened to this young couple that they suddenly broke up. They looked so in love at the convention. No one is stupid enough to not think the SP's political choices affected the whole family. Her choice turned that family's life upside down, hurting relationships that the kids may have had.

    Even reading about the Palins makes the dark clouds appear overhead. I can't imagine how horrible it is for you, Gryphen, to be so close and in the same state as those crepe-hangers. You'll be vindicated soon.

    I firmly believe that the reason people back off the truth about the Palins is because of McCain. He wields a big stick, remember he has his own military and medical records sealed after all these years. He intends to keep them that way, so he continues running for office. No way would he admit that selecting the Screech from Wasilla was a huge mistake, or that she was not properly vetted. Someday it will all come spilling out, and I think it will be even worse than we could ever imagine.

    What does it matter? It matters because it goes to the basic characters of these people. They are criminals and they need to be exposed as such. Todd has shown us time and again that he is a bully (remember the black kid he beat up in high school?)

    When I look at the picture at the top of this post, I am wondering how anyone can say that Sarah is pretty. She is, in my very honest opinion, butt ugly. I see nothing attractive about her. Before the fairy tale troll takes issue with this. NO..I do not know her. But I don't have to know her personally to see what an ugly skank she is.

    I agree with those who are wondering why the state redacted private emails. If the content had nothing to do with private state business (and how private was it with private citizen Toad being involved all the time) they had NO right to black things out. The stupidity of the Palins, using state account to post private things! But since they did, they should have to accept that it is not really private. Alaska..you need to open this festering wound...only then will you get some healing.

    not quite true - the Wiki-leaks dump show that McCain was horrified at something he found out about SP. "This is a fucking DISASTER! What are we going to do about it!"

    What interests me is that at the time, Todd Palin MUST have been aware that such a story would be media gold, but he was STILL too stupid to control himself but instead engaged in threatening behavior.

    Todd Palin losing his temper might be the key to breaking babygate wide open.

    Thanks for the giving a clear explanation of the situation, G. The Palin/Heath clan continues their iron grip on the Alaska media. It must be costing them a ton of money in hush payments.

    Anon @ 8:44,
    Thanks for confirming that you are indeed an asshole. You toss a lot of shit over the transom but have not constructed a cogent argument which refutes the substance of Gryphen's original post.

    Gryphen's observation of marital discord and threatened violence toward Levi have been confirmed - not refuted - by Palin's own e-mails. You assiduously avoid that topic in favor of some stream of unconsciousness bullshit palaver you imagine represents a compelling case - I guess - about the Montana land. However, even that argument is at best disjointed and sketchy. Got any demonstrable, verifiable facts you can support any of your arguments with? That means it has to something other than the stuff you extract from your ass.

    I'll not hold my breath waiting for your evidence.

    You are a shit flinging flying monkey whose incoherent rants are remarkably un-compelling. But, as you are a Palin panty sniffing sycophant, that is none too surprising.

    Levi and Bristol did a magazine spread about getting re-engaged. Unless that was completely a fabrication to grift cash (probably), the Levi/Bristol relationship must have improved at least temporarily.

    Threats from Todd didn't have much effect.

    What does your splitsville post have to do with this, other than you trying to bring it into the conversation? DIdn't the Palins purchase the land by their house in summer 09? There are lots of actual events that seem to disprove that specific post. There are emails that paint a different picture. There are examples of people in the family (extended) that condemn Levi as a fame seeking ahole in August 09. August was when everyone turned on Levi and he became "Valley trash". They were pissed he lied about Trig being called retarded and for just being what Levi's always been called.

    Was going to post this O/T earlier--here's some of the verbal diarrhea from this weekend's Grizzly Fest phone call, pulled from the shallow end of the Kiddie Pool this morning. One of the more lucid “Festers” (their word, not mine) transcribed the word salad that Brainiac and her writers sliced up and tossed around--here’s a glimpse (boldface mine):

    “Hello, Grizzly-fest!

    “This is Governor Sarah Palin, and I just want to thank you so much, sincerely, for all your support, all your efforts. You're awesome, you're amazing!...If it weren't for you, I'd feel that we did not have a chance in defending our Republic, saving our country. So please, stay involved. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you.

    “I'm up here in Fairbanks, Alaska today. I just drove up the three hundred- some-odd miles with the kids this morning to watch Todd finish up the Iron-Dog. Tomorrow he'll cross the finish line, and all is well there in the race, everyone is alive! So that is what we always hope for at the end of the race, if not a victory, then that everyone is safe, happy, healthy, and having fun on this 2,000 mile epic journey across Alaska in the freezing cold on a snow-machine. And that is a lot of Alaskan's idea of fun, if you can believe it...

    “Anyways, I just want to thank you so much for your active involvement in our political process. Please keep it up.

    “Gosh, our independence, our freedom, as I'm speaking about the Iron-Dog, I think it's, you know, this is American! It's that we want to be out with our vocations and our advocations enjoying what it is within us, energetically participating in, in our case, the Great Outdoors that God has created. And whether it's a rural area of The Last Frontier, or in the middle of a big city, doing what you want to do and having the means to do it, by the sweat of your brow. Having the opportunity to work hard and make money in order to do what you want to do. That's freedom, that's prosperity, that is America's foundation. And it's not all fun and games and that's why you've got to stay involved. That's why I stay involved. That's why I put up with the crap that I put up with from the lame stream media, and from the far-left, guys, because know that the freedom that we so enjoy as Americans has got to be defended...And when you get attacked as participants, you should consider that a badge of honor. Consider it kind of an indication of you doing something right, to be involved to help change the nation for the better, and to help defeat Barack Obama in November. Consider it a badge of honor when you're attacked. I certainly try to remember that when I read or see some of the stuff that's out there about me, or my family, or my supporters. I have your back, thank you so much for having mine.

    **more**

    “Now, the theme of your Winter Summit is fighting Crony Capitalism, an issue that is near and dear to my heart. It seems like I've been fighting this kind of corruption for all of my political career, a couple of decades now, at the local, state, and national level. Often, I've had to take on own party, sitting GOP incumbents who were part of the "status quo", they thought that "Pay for Play" wasn't a bad thing. And they thought deriving benefit for themselves and their pals was okay, and no one busted on them for doing it. But it's not okay! It absolutely violates the spirit of public service, so I've been fighting it,and I'm glad you guys are fighting it, too.

    “I had the honor of meeting many of you Grizzly-fest participants in Iowa last September, thank you so much for being there...”

    Lather, rinse, repeat. And this is only about half of it!

    So I, L&KfromB conclude (written in "her" voice)--

    1. It’s a badge of honor to be “attacked” for the crap I've actually pulled that I’ll deny over and over, especially in the weeks ahead. Pity poor moi!

    2. It’s also a privilege to “fight” exactly what I'm guilty of.

    3. Driving over 300 miles in one eensy little morning with the kids is so much fun! Especially with a private plane!

    4. It was such a pleasure snubbing, uh, meeting so many of my supporters in Iowa!

    5. Anywho, keep on workin’ by the sweat of your brow to keep donating to ME for MY prosperity, so I don’t have to, gol’ durn it!

    6. Yeppers! “Advocations” is a wurd!

    STFU! You give yourself away every time, troll! It proves once again, that the Palins are a dysfunctional, mentally unstable, fucked up bunch, which is still “presently happening," now! Many things have come to fruition. I believe Gryphen, and other bloggers predicted the grifter would quit being governor, in order to chase fame, and that’s what happened. You ruin your own credibility whenever you say that everything $arah Palin predicted has come true. Which of course, BULLSHIT! Nothing she has said, has come true. $arah Palin does nothing but tell blatant lies, due to ignorance, and mean-spiritedness.

    Why do you keep reminding us that Bri$tol hated Levi Johnston, and never truly lost that hatred? Yikes! You think that’s a good thing? The Palins have NOT moved on from anything! The Palins can’t let get anything go. $arah Palin freak’n sent out a tweet this weekend whining about some media coverage about a 2007 e-mail she sent, about divorcing Toad! If the Palins are so good at moving on, why bother with such a trivial thing? And, 2008 is still playing over, and over, again in $arah Palin’s head!

Then, when she was confronted about it, Bri$tol walked it back. I hate liars, too. Especially those who lie about something as serious as rape. FUCK YOU, BRI$TOL!

    To recap some of the comment here:

    Mid July 08 - Sarah tells Todd she thinks Levi and Bristol should marry in August. She follows up. No email response from Todd.

    Early August - Sarah offers to adopt baby later to be named Tripp.

    Mid August - Sarah sobs to Bailey about Bristol being pregnant, probably after trying to convince her to adopt the baby out.

    At some point that summer, according to IM, Todd and Levi had a fight.

    Election stuff happens. Reports of discord amongst Bristol and Levi the whole time. Bristol spends time on trail. Levi work on slope.

    Tripp born Dec 27th

    Jan 3rd, Sarah and Todd write emails defending Levi's lack of education and work ethic.

    Jan 3rd , a Saturday, Todd and Levi allegedly have blowout.

    Jan 3rd, Alaskan gala that half AK attends.

    According to Bristol, break up happens days after Tripp was born

    According to Levi, break up occurs Jan 9th? the day he returned from work. This is also how Bristol recounts the breakup

    In the following months the family seemed to go everywhere together, privately and on official business.

    Bristol is referenced by Sarah a lot in early 09

    Summer 09 - weddings, fishing in dillingham with everyone, new property purchase, Bristol lands first real job.

    August 09 - splitsville post and Levi's shameless media outings

    Also Aug 09, intense disapproval and disrespect for Levi from all sides of the family.

    Today - things are as if none of that occurred.

    Which “extremely temporary job” are you talking about? The one that $arah Palin used her connections as governor to get him, even though it was illegal for him to have the job? The illegal job that Levi quit, after the media found out about it? That job? And, according to you, it was Bri$tol who answered the door with “anger,” not Levi. What was Toad trying to protect Bri$tol from? Way too late for Toad to try to start being a good parent. If he was a really good parent, his kids probably wouldn’t be so ignorant, and would be better behaved.

    Sarah has worked her behind the scenes magic again.

    Julianne Moore has walked back her harsh criticism of Sarah and HBO is caving under the pressure.

    It sucks to be you.

    9:58 AM

    Umm...you gotta a source for this late breaking news...and no...."Crazies4Palin" is NOT a legitimate source. And if you are referring to that crazy article they put up today titled....

    "Moore’s Lame Attempt at Damage Control (But Still Beats Anything McCain Has Offered)"

    Where did HBO "cave under the pressure"? And are you referring to this New York Post article in which Julianne had the following to say...

    "The former governor went from having a comfortable and “open relationship” with the media in her home state to being manhandled by McCain’s people, Moore told The Post.

    She “was suddenly almost in lockdown, where [she] wasn’t allowed to speak to anybody unless it went through the proper channels. They were telling her what to do and how to dress. And how to behave,” Moore said. “So they take a candidate for what she is and what she represents, and they want to make her into something else.”

    Palin’s knowledge of world affairs and foreign policy was so limited that she had be given History 101 classes by McCain’s advisers — but that, Moore says, doesn’t mean Palin is dumb.

    “People did see that she was not as prepared as they would have liked her to be. And they saw it in the various interviews that we all saw,” the actress said.

    Still, “I think she’s very canny,” Moore said. “ And she’s extremely hardworking and ambitious, and would not have reached the place that she reached without ability. You don’t get to be a vice-presidential candidate by accident.”

    Moore listened to Palin’s book “Going Rogue” on tape to master her Alaskan lilt.

    “It’s not just her accent,” Moore said. “It’s almost her syntax, sometimes her phraseology. Instead of saying ‘to go out,’ she’ll say, ‘TO go out.’ There’s a musicality to her speech that’s very idiosyncratic.”

    This doesn't even come CLOSE to Julianne "walked back her harsh criticism"...but I'm sure comprehension is a trait palinbots' have a tough time with.

    Anyway...Game Change will still be on HBO and Baldy will still look like an idiot and the world gets to see it first hand! It's a WIN WIN for everyone!

    Pointing a gun at a teenager isn't being "proactive in parenting". It is being both a bully and totally out of control. Todd needed a gun as an equalizer to handle a teenage boy? He has a history of needing help such as when he was a senior in high school and he and two buddies beat up a black boy who was in junior high.

    "Have you seen Todd?" Yep, I'd say the country has seen the sleazy coward.

    Now if Todd took a stand about Sarah Palin neglecting her own children then I'd agree he was proactive in his parenting.

    Sounds like the Palins: Failing to mention things that make them look bad on paper, or anywhere else!

    Huh? How does Levi saying he doesn’t like school in person, and then writing that he loved school, make him look bad on paper? As usual, you don’t make any sense. The Palin kids don’t go to school anyway, so they don’t look so great, either.

    Sarah and Levi firmly defend Levi's lack of education by touting his work ethic the same day of this mysterious event talking about by Brendan and Bill McAllister?

    Sarah went on to defend him a week later over the another child claims.

    On Saturday, did Todd approach Levi and say he needed to get his GED or quit so it doesn't look bad? We know Todd is Sarah's decision maker.

    Does Levi know his almost inlaws defended him? Does it make him feel like a POS that he betrayed them due to his immaturity?

    Who cares? The Palins have spent more time putting him down. The Palins have no right to muzzle Levi Johnston. Freedom of Speech, and all that. I have yet to hear anything about the Palins trying to sue Levi for slander. Why should Levi be loyal to the Palins? It doesn’t seem like they ever liked him, anyway. And, it was the Palins who dragged Levi Johnston into the spotlight. $arah Palin is FOOL for talking about other people’s lack of education, as DUMB as she is! I bet Palin’s whole family are dumb-asses, like her! If Toad is $arah’s decision maker, than he makes a lot of bad decisions! Was it his bright idea to have that moron run for VP in 2008? (I can’t wait for Game Change!) $arah Palin has been slammed so many times, for her lack maturity. I remember when Palin’s immaturity was slammed by the media, for having a public feud with a teenaged boy (Levi Johnston). $arah Palin is a dangerous piece of shit, for trying to piggyback her way into the White House!

    It doesn't take much for someone with a gun to pull out his weapon and threaten people these days. I am a fan of those court shows on TV, and people are always getting into fights, calling names and taking it outside to slug it out. It usually comes with drinking (and maybe some drug use, too). We have heard reports that Todd and Sarah did not sleep in the same bed. Todd's hangout was the lounge chair and some beers. It wouldn't take much to set him off after a few brews-- and the lounge chair life. We've see his hot temper when he challenged a school teacher holding up the sign, "Worst governor ever." We've seen him bully a guy who wanted to photograph Sarah in the Valdez airport. And we know how he sat in Sarah's office trying to get former brother-in-law Trooper Wooten fired, just because. In fact, they ended up firing the guy who wouldn't fire Wooten. There are telephone tapes of Todd the Enforcer bullying people. The story of him and Levi having a confrontation sounded right before I saw the emails. The Palins are a bunch of bullies. Sarah bullied the newspapers into writing nice things about her or they would not have access. Those guys really play hardball. No wonder people in Alaska still won't talk.

    Quite frankly - if Todd Palin aimed a gun, especially loaded, which I presume it was, he belongs in jail. Todd and Sarah both should be on their hands and knees with gratitude that Levi didn't press charges right then and there.

    No matter what Levi did, a minor, no less, for a grown man to point a loaded gun at a teenage boy is absolutely illegal - and hey, don't we all feel lucky Todd Palin isn't sitting next to Sarah and John Mc Cain's corpse telling her to NUKE some country because HE wants to show the world what a manly man he is?

    If indeed this happened - Levi should be suing the hell out of these people. and where the hell are Levi's parents and his so-called handlers - why did they allow Todd to get away with this, who is helping this kid out here - NO ONE! ANY NORMAL PARENT would have had Todd Palin behind bars so fast his head would spin!

    I can't believe Palin supporters would support this kind of behavior or not recognize this as yet more bizarre behavior in a family totally not suited for any political position, let alone the Presidency!

    I hope whoever else he has threatened by pointing a loaded gun at them steps forward and tells the story - if this is another aspect of the Palins that has been swept under the rug - we need to know about it!

    Bristol admitted she didn't give Levi a chance in 09, that she didn't want to live unhappily as she had been in his presence and called it quits. Her parents were probably elated that there was to be no further strife in her life. Tough situation but she made the right decision as she seemed to automatically revert back to happiness right after the breakup.

    To recap some of the comment here:

    Mid July 08 - Sarah tells Todd she thinks Levi and Bristol should marry in August. She follows up. No email response from Todd.

    Early August - Sarah offers to adopt baby later to be named Tripp.

    Mid August - Sarah sobs to Bailey about Bristol being pregnant, probably after trying to convince her to adopt the baby out.

    At some point that summer, according to IM, Todd and Levi had a fight.

    Election stuff happens. Reports of discord amongst Bristol and Levi the whole time. Bristol spends time on trail. Levi work on slope.

    Tripp born Dec 27th

    Jan 3rd, Sarah and Todd write emails defending Levi's lack of education and work ethic.

    Jan 3rd , a Saturday, Todd and Levi allegedly have blowout.

    Jan 3rd, Alaskan gala that half AK attends.

    According to Bristol, break up happens days after Tripp was born

    According to Levi, break up occurs Jan 9th? the day he returned from work. This is also how Bristol recounts the breakup

    In the following months the family seemed to go everywhere together, privately and on official business.

    Bristol is referenced by Sarah a lot in early 09

    Summer 09 - weddings, fishing in dillingham with everyone, new property purchase, Bristol lands first real job.

    August 09 - splitsville post and Levi's shameless media outings

    Also Aug 09, intense disapproval and disrespect for Levi from all sides of the family.

    Today - things are as if none of that occurred.

    Maybe someday someone will take pity on her and marry her, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were her.

    OTOH, Levi is gorgeous and if he is not already married to Bristol, will be married soon.

  137. Let's remember that Levi's father and Todd knew each other thru work. Yet Levi's father does not appear until the work issue as apprentice electrician came up in the news. The father also leaves the coop and divorces Levi's mother.

    What I am trying to say is that I feel Levi was protecting his mother....obviously the Palins had taken care of shutting Sheri's mouth by home incarceration. But as long as Levi's Mom and sister are in Alaska he has to worry for their safety. I don't think Levi is worried for his son's safety. Did Levi know about Todd and Shailey...you bet he did as Shailey had spoken about their little confrontation by the massage parlor.

    “Bristol admitted she didn't give Levi a chance in 09, that she didn't want to live unhappily as she had been in his presence and called it quits. Her parents were probably elated that there was to be no further strife in her life. Tough situation but she made the right decision as she seemed to automatically revert back to happiness right after the breakup.”

    Oh, shut the fuck up. Of course Bri$tol is happy. She doesn’t have to work, or go to school.

    “So, on the day of the rumored blowup, Todd references Levi's father and Levi's illegally-acquired job.

    If that blowup happened that Saturday, I bet big money it was job related.”

    $arah Palin, using her connections as governor, is the one who got Levi that illegally “acquired job.” Levi quit when the media found out about it.

    I think Levi was one unlucky dude.

    Of all the girls he could have had ...become involved with ... he chose Bristol?

    Or was it the other way around? Was Levi chosen by Bristol and her mom and dad to be the convenient "dumb stud" they needed to cover for Bristol's promiscuity?

    He may very well not be the biological father of Trig or Tripp but was led to believe he was. When the "fiance" was no longer needed, the Palins through him away - but only after Bristol orchestrated a re-engagement via People Mag or some other tabloid , and Levi recanted his previous criticisms of the palins and most likely signed nondisclosure agreements up the wazoo.

    Levi may still believe he is the father of Trig and Tripp. If I were him, I'd have a DNA test done to confirm. Just saying, Levi.

    Bristol was quite the party girl before you "knew" her. Juneau wild times. The Kolvig yacht, MV Pacifica, party boat for Track and Bristol. They might not have been charged with any crime, but they were behaving as hoodlums and Mama Grizz had to leave the capital Juneau for the more secretive outskirts of Wasilla. And don't forget the per deim... and the kids travel expenses also, too.

    And while I am thinking about it, IMHO Tank is not Levi's body guard but his jailer. Levi may have agreed to "conditions" during the "re-engagement" which included recanting prior anti-Palin statements and prohibiting hinm from making any in the future. He must have essentially given up custody for Tripp. The Palins made sure of that.

    Levi knows he's been had. His mother and father have suffered at the hands of the Palins. He knows, and his sister should know by now, that neither Tripp nor Triggy Bear will ever be a part of their lives again. The Palins will see to it.

    Todd threatened Levi with a shotgun? You betcha!!! And probably a whole hell of a lot more.

    Yeah. Levi is one unlucky dude.

    The blog still says:

    Don't feed the trolls!
    It just goes directly to their thighs

    but comments responding to "trolls" abound. It would be very helpful if such comments began:

    I am responding to comment by a person I have decided to label a "troll".

    That way, I could more easily locate the intelligent, funny, informative, questioning, etc. comments that truly make this blog a pleasure to read.
    ---------------------------------
    1:39 PM:

    What?


    Most people are not labeling trolls. Most of the stupid comments ARE trolls. I don’t see how anyone could mistaken a troll, who insults Gryphen, (the owner of this blog!) or calls the president as a dangerous “thug” (even when the post has nothing to do with him) for a serious commenter, who is trying to engage in “intelligent, funny, informative, questioning, etc. comments that truly make this blog a pleasure to read.” Those kinds of comments are clearly from trolls, nobody is labeling them. Too bad some people can’t recognize a troll when they see one.

    It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Todd pulled a loaded gun on Levi, a teenager. It has something to do with that Manly man image Todd likes to swagger, and the law of the last frontier where justice is bought or bullied. He and his fellow bullies beat up the only black boy in their school? That's where it starts... addiction to power.

    Does it surprise me that Levi had no adult to protect him? No, not one bit. The Palins made sure of that. In his parents' place, Todd and Sarah put "handlers" like Tank -

    Levi is the real victim in all this and he will pay for the rest of his life. The Palins will see to it.

    Dark Shadows, the Palins are.

    We keep hearing about how the Palin kids, Track, Bristol, and Willow all have been full=time employed but - absolutely no stories or pics of such "employment" by the MSM - don't you think the press would be at least trying to get the scoop on this "employment" and Sarah trying to gin up more $$$ by spinning these "jobs" stories to the public? I don't think these kids are employed in "real" jobs. Also, has Track been redeployed or is that just another lie? Again, no real definitive story with an actual current pic of Palin w.her "combat vet" Sgt!

    Thanks, Irishgirl @ 2:48pm! Some interesting stuff in those emails and you can easily see the groundwork of the "future Palin" brand being created for her. They had even established one of the buzz phrases "fire in the belly" and her "Rebel Red" wardrobe for their "Leader of the Rebellion"(!!) in 2007. Read it if you have a minute!

    You are RIGHT! The troll comments are obvious. AND the blog owner requests "Don't feed the trolls".

    Yet some are discourteous enough to ignore the request and go ahead with a reply to someone call a "troll" in their reply.

    In that case, I would appreciate the comment starting with a warning phrase so I can skip it more easily. A simple "this comment is replying to a troll" would improve the signal to noise ratio.

    If some can not resist feeding trolls at least they could make it easier to ignore the pointless (and boring) comments.

    My response:

    I find many responses that disagree with posters to be enlightening as it gives another perspective to the Palin narrative. It makes the journey to finding the truth that much more entertaining. I have grown extremely tired of the third grade accusations of "troll" every time someone adds their opinion to this blog. It's ridiculous and has truly gotten out of hand.

    Todd Palin has always kind of given me creepy vibes, even before I knew much about him. Now with this and the excerpt you shared from Shailey's book, I know my intuition was spot on. The things these people do in this family are no longer entertaining but downright despicable and disgusting.

    Great Post, Gryphen. I remember those days well, and the crap that Sarah had gone through to "out" you as a "kindergarten teacher". I also recall that it all amounted to a "flea fart", because it drove people to this blog and the truth.

    The problem I have with the emails is all the redactions and inappropriate e-mails (one to Levi from Sarah with the words "State of the State" in the title. WTF does a teenage stud muffin have to do with the State of the State speech? They should be released in their entirety or the matter should go before a judge. Doing State Business "under the table" with non secured email addresses is a security breach.

    Remember, this woman spoke for 29 minutes to someone she thought was President of France, Dawg only knows who else she spoke to and what State business was done on cell phones not santioned by the state.

    Anyway, keep up the good work.

    P,S, Thanks for sharing the troll posts. Gina M's got me rolling in my seat laughing with her snark.

    Rumor= Levi was cheating on Bristol; possibly knocked up another girl

    Bristol is DESTROYED! All her plans, dreams and hopes go down the toilet b/c she linked them all to Levi and he broke her heart.

    Ironically, she needed Levi to get away from the hell that was life with Sarah and Todd,

    but b/c Levi is a cheating shit, Bristol was forced to retreat deeper than EVER into the world of Sarah and Todd b/c, as Sarah was sure to tell Bristol over and over and over again, NO ONE else is going to take care of you like us.

    So now it's probably almost like a survival thing for Bristol to rebuff the attacks against her parents, because to acknowledge the "real" Sarah and Todd is just way too painful and humiliating.

      I read a comment that the Palins are what psychologists call an "enmeshed" dysfunctional family. This post breaks it down nicely into the nuts & bolts. Also, my preferred babygate theory is that Bristol gave birth to (medically fragile, probably FAS) Ruffles prematurely and either died or got farmed out, replaced by the relatively healthy and high-functioning Trig. In any case one story that has never been refudiated is the account of Bristol being furious when Palin announced her faux pregnancy. Oh, and let's not forget, there's zero doubt that Palin threw Bristol under a bus rather than responding to the babygate rumors by, oh I don't know, something totally off the wall, like releasing a birth certificate or something. One wonders if Bristol will ever find the strength to actually deal with the sh*t...or if it will be easier for her to carry on the family tradition of malignant dysfunctionality...

    People feeling the need to engage trolls are playing into the trolls' hands... This disrupts the thread, and that very well may be the trolls' intention.

    I can't tell the difference half the time between those who might actually be trolls and those who are sparring with them. It's almost the same at times, as essentially it becomes tangential and breaks up any productive continuity. Why argue with idiots?

    Stay focused, rather, and ignore them. Or at least keep your responses short and sweet and don't answer their absurd comments point by point. As in, "Go away, we don't care what you have to say", or something to that effect.

    I get as tempted as anyone to slam these people, but why let them take over?
