"She ain't nothing" Says defiant Levi Johnston about ex-future mother-in-law Sarah Palin. Now we are talking!

In his custody fight for son Tripp, Levi Johnston says he's up against a powerful foe: Sarah Palin.

Johnston, 19, claims the former vice presidential candidate has been part of an effort to keep Tripp away from Johnston by exerting influence on 19-year-old daughter Bristol, who is Tripp's mother.

"She has a big impact on what Bristol does and thinks," Johnston tells Entertainment Tonight. "Bristol looks up to Sarah. I don't know why they just don't want me in his life."

But Johnston insists he doesn't fear Palin as he gets ready to sue for joint custody. "She ain't nothing," he says. "Just because she ran for vice president and was the governor of Alaska, doesn't intimidate me. Sarah has no legal thing on Tripp, she's just the grandmother."

He adds: "By the end of the year we're gonna go to court for joint custody. I'm just done with it. When there's a kid involved you ain't walking away."

It looks like Levi is digging in.

Even though my sources told me that Levi does NOT want to go to court to see his son, it looks like things may be heading in that direction if they keep using his son to punish him. Levi is starting to stand up for himself, even with his handlers.

I have also heard that one of the sticking points is fear from the Palin's that Levi will let Tripp be photographed.

Go ahead, ask the question.

Why would it matter if he were photographed if there are already pictures of Levi with Tripp in GQ Magazine and a televised interview with Bristol and Tripp conducted by Greta Van Susteren?

Yep that is the question alright.

Update: Here is Levi's interview on ET.

By the way it appears that Levi's real quote is "She ain't NO thing", instead of "She ain't nothing" as was quoted by the People magazine.

Did you hear this part?

Diane Dimond, when asking Levi about Palin's resistance to letting him see Tripp, "What grandmother would take that away from their grandchild?"

Levi's one word answer, "Sarah". I love it!


  1. hmmm, could it be that the baby we thougt was Tripp is not Tripp and maybe the real Tripp isn't a baby but is a toddler....

  2. My guess, it's not the same baby?

    Yes. Buy his book when it comes out.

    And go to websites that cover him and make positive comments to balance out the Palin-bots who regularly slam him.

  6. Anonymous4:44 PM

    Can some one let me know what was going on with Trig during the campaign? Klieg lights and HDTV? Is it only proper to stage a 4 month old DS baby for cameras?

  7. Ooh. Interesting. Sounds like some of the speculation of substitute babies may be true. And the questions about Bristol's "pregnancy" (I'm thinking we can put it in quotes now) might be on the right track.

  8. Wes ben, I had the same thought when I read Levi's recent comments. Tried to propose this theory last night on another post here. Still fits, even tighter in my read. Today's statement-- she is just the grandmother tells me that Sarah and Todd did not actually adopt the toddler.

  9. Anonymous4:58 PM

    "...fear from the Palin's that Levi will let Tripp be photographed."
    That is almost funny. If she had those reservations sooner she wouldn't be as loathed for using T1 as a prop.

    Heh, I hear parents do take photos. Levi is a free man and I don't think he should be restricted because someone's karma is biting them on their butt. Grow up Palin poops. The old ones are hopeless, Bristol could make a get away, I don't see that happening.

    Bristol, get to talking to those teens and telling them why you chose abstinence-only and what happens if it doesn't work. Your parents teachings suck and now you want to cheat your child out of time with his father over things like he might do what your mother did? Levi won't go near doing that. He has much better sense. What a selfish weak person to keep Tripp from his family. That is not love.

  10. Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night,
    The first one's named Sweet Anne Marie, and she's my hearts delight.
    The second one is prison, babe, the sheriff's on my trail,
    And if he catches up with me, I'll spend my life in jail.

    Got a wife in Chino, babe, and one in Cherokee
    The first one says she's got my child, but it don't look like me.

    Makes NO sense (not that scarah EVER makes sense).

  13. Anonymous5:13 PM

    Would Sarah be worried about NUDE pictures of Tripp? I hesitate to say this because it seems like a ridiculous line of thought, but I can imagine Palin trying to make a big deal of Levi's Playgirl appearance.

    We've seen pictures of Bristol and Tripp. Levi recently flashed a picture of a baby in a cowboy hat who is the same baby we've seen with Bristol.

    There can't be a third child that is hidden and never gets to go out. So...


  14. Anonymous5:14 PM

    I haven't kept a very good Levi time-line, so I don't recall how many visits Levi has had with Tripp, and if the visits were before or after Rex & Tank came on the scene.

    It might not be a photo that Sarah is worried about, but a DNA test. Levi thinks that he is Tripp's father; he was trotted out on the national stage as such. But, who know for sure, for DNA sure??

    I'm really just wanting to know the truth already. Do you think we will ever know it Gryphen? I used to think definitely, but I don't anymore.
    Sarah has gotten away with so much it's immoral! What happened with the Alaskat fund trust and other unresolved ethics complaints. She is extremely crooked and is a pathological liar yet her base think she is so great! This isn't liberal bias. Look how many Alaskan Republicans see her for what she really is! I wish more of them would speak out!

    It must be DNA Sarah and Bristol are worried about. Didn't Levi say they were both faithful during time that T2 would have been conceived?

  24. So, Bristol is a hypocrite just like her mother, eh? (but we knew about that already, didn't we?)

    Maybe Bristol doesn't remember the People magazine cover she posed for, holding baby Tripp for all to see.

    Come on folks don't you think if there was a big story here someone in that Hillbilly heaven Wasilla would have come forward by now to collect a paycheck. If there is a babygate here it would take a lot of people to cover this up.I firmly believe that Gryphen is stringing all of of along. I have lived in Alaska a long time and know the Palin family (Todd's) and I can tell you that I have not heard a word about any major cover up. If it was there it would have been out by now.

    The baby intrigue makes my head spin.

    Levi is incredibly handsome in that photo. I bet he knows how to use his gun.

    Babies do need mom and dad. Bristol is going rogue. She is mini-me Sarah. Big Sarah may give mini-me permission to try to get Levi to back off from legal joint custody and will allow them to sneak a visit while Big Sarah is gone.

    The floodgates are about to open.

  29. The original pictures of Mercede and Levi with a baby do not look like the same baby that was with the Heaths at the hospital.

    May be they don't want to show photos because the baby came down with a disease caused by the pollutants in the soil, air and water.

    Both babies may have environmental toxins that are manifesting. You can't hide those things forever.

  32. Anon @ 6:42 Perhaps you should re-read your own comment. The purpose of a cover up is to HIDE something, so... if there is something being hidden, THEN PEOPLE WHO KNOW ARE SUPPOSED TO BE KEEPING THE SECRET -- THAT'S WHY IT IS A COVER UP!!!!!!!

    It is a big story if those kids are hidden because they have developed welts or sores from that disgusting lake and all the poison from no regulations.

  37. Anonymous7:26 PM

    Early on there were photos. But...

    It has occurred to me that one reason (if what Levi said is true) that they (Bristol and Levi) don't want photos of him in the press is because the two of them (Bristol and Levi) experienced exploitation, watched Trigg be exploited and don't want that for their baby.

    I don't know--just a thought.

  38. Churches keep deep dark secrets for years before some old pervert like a Warren Jeffs finally gets nailed. It does happen. The Palins are a religious family. Who knows how skewed their church is. Sarah tried to cover the fact they try to fix gays by telling them to be hetro. She tries to cover Todd and her association with the AIP.

  39. Aussie Blue Sky7:31 PM

    from the People magazine website ...

    Thomas Van Flein told Britain's The Guardian on Oct. 30, "Other than noting that Tripp's father is always welcome to visit his son, we are unable to respond to these allegations as it is inappropriate to discuss child custody matters publicly."

  43. lily r8:23 PM

    I've heard Oprah will talk to Sarah via satellite for the Nov 16 show. Sarah will be in her own home. Does this new photo phobia mean she will not allow Trig to be on camera?

    I have a friend that is a grandmother and every picture I see of her now she is with her grand child. I can't believe Sarah is so ashamed of being a grandmother. She would never be in a photo with a known grand child.

    If she has to exploit children I hope she will stop exploiting the down syndrome boy. Piper seems to enjoy attention and she is old enough to say she just won't do it if she doesn't want.

    That baby looks like it's almost 1 yea old. I went in and looked at Trig's piucture like you said and some of them just don't resemble the same baby, they look like different baby's. One picture doesn't even look like a DS baby.
    Gryphen, have you studied all of Trigs pictures from the get go, there's got to be as they say A picture is worth a thousand words. Especially the day old pictue of Trig, sure don't look premature to me and then goes to work with Palin 3 days later. A premature DS baby is let out of the hospital in 3 days?My I guess she thinks all of american people are really dumb hicks.

    I always thought Levi looked a lot younger in this photo. Look how long his hair is:

    Then look at this photo with short hair:

  46. Anonymous8:30 PM

    Anon, that photo from the guardian 10/24/08 of Trig on google images is interesting. He does look very different from the other photos. Then there is one with a snow mobile that is strange, but maybe it's photoshopped. They don't look the same as the one of Trig from the quitters resignation picnic.
    And there are very few Tripp photos.

  47. emrysa8:41 PM

    people are jumping to some strange conclusions.

    seems to me that the reason sarah doesn't want tripp photographed is BECAUSE SHE'S A CONTROL FREAK and wants to control every image the public ever sees of him. she can't control levi and she doesn't want to see pics of her grandson out there that she hasn't "okay-ed" for publication.

    I was looking at pictures online of Sarah and the Palin family, and came across something I hadn't see before. In a blog about astrology, there was a post in September of 2008 asking questions about the "wild ride". In the comment section, someone did a chart for Sarah based on her time and place of birth. I admit that I was chuckling to myself until I read the entire description. Here's an excerpt:

    "Neptune in Scorpio in her 4th house of home tells me that nothing is as it is appears to be & there are many ugly secrets in that family. I would be willing to bet that her homelife takes dysfunctionality to a whole new zenith."

    Sarah likes strange conclusions and rumors or she would have cleared things up long ago. She is addicted to having everyone speculate on the family girl parts or boy parts. She is full of self sabotaging quirks. That is why she is a popular celebrity.

    I forgot how dumb she is. Whoever keeps her behind facebook has a point. On Palingates there is a video of her moronic tv moments. It has been wonderful not to hear her voice but it is good to go back and look at why she lost.

    I am hoping Levi and Bristol will mediate an agreement and bring action before a Court to finalize such agreement, out of the MSM. A child should have the right to bond with both parents, not used a pawn.

    That was the first time I heard Levi mention a book. Wonder when that will be released?

  54. Anonymous2:31 AM

    Ok Gryphen,

    The only reason that this family wouldn't want a baby photographed is if it doesn't match up with a story. So here is my thought.... Bristol had a baby Dec 27, 2007 that they named Trip. SP wanted to adopt it, but when Bristol said no, she decided not only would she have her own baby, she would acquire a Down Syndrome baby (yes, as a result of McCain's nomination and her belief that she would get selected for his VP running mate), which she named Trig. I really think that they have Trip secreted away somewhere, and is part of the reason that they have built this huge house addition. I am torn on whether baby#3, born sometime at the end of 2008/beginning of 2009 is really Bristol's or not... the one named Tripp.
    You would really make my day (and year, probably!) if you could tell me if I am getting warm.

  55. rationalist,

    excellent! More hunter/garcia!

  56. I think what Gryphen is saying is that Tripp who was photigraphed and paraded out on news shows, the abstinenece tour, and People Magazine is not the real Tripp? The real Tripp may be quite a bit younger?

    I think if recent photos of Tripp get out, we will start comparing them.

    I think Palin got the ds baby through her church, thanks with help from the doctor CBJ (or is it CJB?), the church's records are burned so now there is no record of the bio parents. During Palin's governors term (before she was picked for VP) she helped change the laws to be able to obtain birth certificates with the urging of CBJ. Forward ahead and now Palin needs a fake birth cert to cover T1 so that it looks like she and Todd are the parents - what a strange/funny/interesting set of coincidences. A fake preg, a fake birth cert, a fake mother of T1. T1 was a prop for her national exposure and when things didn't work out Bristol took over carrying for T1.

    Why would she give Levi such a hard time when it comes to his wanting to see his Son, especially when she KNOWS that he has got the goods on her?!? Why is she provoking him? Is she really that much more arrogant than I already believed, that she thinks nobody will believe him? Even if Levi were to blatantly lie, which I do not believe he would, the exposure to the story alone would damage her as it would bring up so many more questions than answers. Also, with all the different lies Scarah has told (the ones she can't seem to keep straight) there would definitely be more questions.
    She really, really is a total freakin idiot.

    I am anxious for the movies. I would like SP to be the background noise. I am sick of her. Maybe one day a documentary to focus on all her fraud and corruption. Now I am more intrigued with life around the Valley and seeing what the kids are dealing with. The long winters, camping, burning man, hockey, snowboarders, the Lake, shopping, barristas, sex, drugs and rock and roll. Do a film the teens can relate to. Every town has some idiot like a corrupt city council, mayor or something that has power and is a control freak. Parents out of control and subjecting children to crazy religious ideology. This could be a film with lessons for all.

    7:01 AM ~ I admit I would like to hear Levi talk about his thoughts on Bristol's church. I think he was living in the Palin house and sharing a bed with Bristol at the same time of the fire. Does anyone know if that is right?

    He would know of things that were mentioned and attitudes about events. It is of interest to me.
    Did the ATF interview Levi?

    The only blame for the fire that I hear involves the LGBT community. There is absolutely no evidence, yet they talk like it is for certain. There is only one suspect of who is behind the church fire? Why are other suspects not mentioned?

    I think it is interesting that Levi has come out to be so different from a certain mind set in the churches of the Wasilla area (where LGBT rights are neglected).

    Hey, this is just my personal opinion and observation, which might also serve as a remarkably sound suggestion to some: Set up a blog. Do your own research. Seek out your own inside contacts and whistleblowers. Verify and fact check their every statement. Cross your fingers that you haven't missed something that will contradict it. Put your own reputation on the line by composing narratives about what you have discovered.

    Then, allow all comments to be posted, no matter how insulting they are to you.

    After you've done all that, come back and post a link to your blog so that everyone here can come and take a look at all that you have done and the truth you have uncovered--and openly revealed to the world.

    Seems to me that Bristol & Levi had a kid way before the one we know as Tripp. Maybe Dec 27, 2007? If you look at these photos with 'Tripp' which I think are from the Tyra show, Levi doesn't appear to have his Johnston tattoo on his arm.



    So these photos can't be from December 2008, as Levi had the tattoo by then. So either Bristol got pregnant again to some other guy, or her pregnancy from April/May 2008 was a fake. And the real Tripp is a year older than we think and kept out of sight. And who knows where the hell Trig came from, possibly a stork.

    In the image from flicker it does look like there's no tattoo, but in the version from Bree Palin's site, you can see the darker area on his forearm clearer which is the tattoo and not a shadow...

  78. Anonymous12:47 PM

    Sunshine 1970 & other anons: I'm still not convinced that it's the tattoo and not a shadow. I played around with the photo, and by reducing the highlights and shadows back to 0, increasing sharpness to 100% and exposure to 3.0 the shadow disappears. I also applied the same attributes to the photo of Levi holding 'Tripp' that clearly shows the tattoo. This makes the tattoo stand out even more clearly against the paler skin, not disappear. Try doing it yourself at home. I will try to set up a flickr or something so I can show you what I did. I think that it is a shadow, it is too narrow to be the tattoo I think, to me it looks like the shadow line of the bone next to a bulgey muscle. And it wouldn't disappear when the exposure was increased and shadows reduced. Does anyone who knows more about photography have an opinion???

  79. RE: the tattoo - this doesn't matter -- this is really a red herring. The triggy bear photos which were posted in May '08 and certainly taken earlier, ARE NOT photos of TRIPP. Go to Bree Palin's blog (recent post) or to the archives at Palingates or Palins Deceptions (all on GRYPHEN's sidebar here) and you will see the difference.

    Just thought about something, Gryph ---

    look at the Tats on the boy -- AS well as the hair.
    Dunno about Alaska, but giving a tatoo on someone under 18 is illegal, without parental consent.
    Levi's "ring" tat... and the arm - which is terribly "fresh" and dark incomparison to the 'bristol' ring'.

    just check'it! Shouldn't there be some records of tatoos provided???

    Love IM Gryphen; however,I feel as if I have wandered into the Twilight Zone today. "She ain't No thing!" as opposed to 'nothing' means...? If you know, please share!

    Apparently I am also obtuse today and the synapses are not firing. I will try this blog again from the beginning. Perhaps I will receive some understanding. OK, here I go. Wish me luck :)

    My post did not appear, it was just before the tatoo posts, was it censored, was I getting to close in my theory??

    Conscious at last- it is relevant because Levi is holding 'Tripp' in the photo, not Trig. If he doesn't have the tattoo, the photo of him with his son was taken well before Dec 2008 when 'Tripp' was supposedly born.

    8:27 AM ~ Thank you for the concerns. We love our lives, jobs, kids and grow some of our food to put on the table. We work hard here and finances are doing fine.
    Some of my best friends are "in the business," writers, directors and actors. We discuss and explore various story lines. That is why I am interested in some of the theories. Orly is a hoot, but not the discussion here. I am more interested in the parts of Palin/Johnstons where hard evidence is possible.
    The Wasilla Bible Church Arson fits that category.

    The Wasilla Bible Church Arson was an actual event that is still under investigation. It is in the rhealm of reality and it could be solved one day. Something that would be good for all concerned. Meanwhile, we see it as one of the more interesting parts of your small state. Anywhere else people would be gathering in town halls, writing letters and asking for answers about the arsons that plague their area. Most of all a fire like the Wasilla Bible Church Arson Fire would get a lot of public scrutiny and discussion in other communities. The fact that is not what happens in Wasilla is a statement itself. Sometimes it is what you don't say. Since Wasilla has such an odd and unusual reaction, it is an alarm to others that observe you.

    I haven't given any thought to why Gryphen chose to stay anonymous. Your neighbors do what they do in Alaska. No, I don't live there, but we don't intrude on each other here either.

    A church arson where the ATF is involved and some are blaming a particular group of people is something else. I find what ANONYMOUS 7:01 AM ~ said relevant and important:
    I think Palin got the ds baby through her church, thanks with help from the doctor CBJ (or is it CJB?), the church's records are burned so now there is no record of the bio parents. During Palin's governors term (before she was picked for VP) she helped change the laws to be able to obtain birth certificates with the urging of CBJ. Forward ahead and now Palin needs a fake birth cert to cover T1 so that it looks like she and Todd are the parents - what a strange/funny/interesting set of coincidences. A fake preg, a fake birth cert, a fake mother of T1. T1 was a prop for her national exposure and when things didn't work out Bristol took over carrying for T1.

    It is of interest to explore what Levi would have to say, he would know things and about attitudes.
    There is only one suspect group for who is behind the church fire? Why are other suspects not mentioned?
    Levi does not come off as if he is like all the church teachings and he is supportive of others rights. Several churches are activists and support an opposite position.

    The tat is the most important find. It's all making sense now. Forget the other drivel.

    Bree Palin has pictures of Tripp on her blog- the second one with Mercede could not be Tripp(unless it was the first Tripp) because it was posted on Mercede's face book and was scrubbed right after the MaCain /Sarah pic for VP. Notice too that Levi is wearing the ring on his thumb..and he looks really young, more like 17 in that picture.

    Levi is really getting the hang of it with his media appearances. There is no holding him back now.
