Simple: get everything in writing (or email, or voicemail if your system
lets you save it - some preservable medium you can produce later on). If
you have a conversation, send a followup email to "confirm what we
discussed" so there is some record. Also, keep a little notebook handy and
make notes of whatever you and your boss agree to, with the date.

Producing this proof for your boss's boss is the heavy artillery and should
be used only in extremis. However, it's amazing how...tame...people can get
about lying about you, once they're aware that what they say and what they
commit to is documented and can be proven.
