Tripp Johnston Turns Two Years Old Today

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 27, 2010

Bristol Palin’s son Tripp turned two years old today.  Here are some video glimpses of some of the media events this beautiful child participated in during his eventful first two years.

Tripp was introduced to America on Greta van Susteren’s show.
 

Harper’s Bazaar did a photo shoot of Bristol and Tripp having a tea party.

Tripp went to Los Angeles with his Mom when she was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. 

One of the cutest sights on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” was Tripp and his Uncle Trig playing.  We got glimpses of the two cuties throughout the series as the older children and the adults engaged in more strenuous outdoor activities.  The TLC website has a slideshow here with some neat photos of the Palin family.

We look forward to watching Tripp and the other young Palin family members grow and mature.   They have a lot of exciting times ahead.

Star Power: Palin Takes Hollywood … And the Culture

Posted by Dr. Gina Loudon on December 27, 2010

By Dr. Gina Loudon and featured on Big Hollywood

The liberal media relentlessly criticizes Sarah Palin for her ubiquitous media appearances from hard news punditry to pop culture appearances. The Fox News analyst is “going Hollywood” with her latest stint in reality TV, attendance at Bristol’s Dancing with the Stars events. Palin is everywhere. More than any other political figure in modern history, the ever-present Palin has shown a phenomenal ability to remain relevant. Her savvy has left her progressives hand-wringing, potential presidential opponents sniping, and everyone else in America abuzz over what she will and should do next.

Depending on your point of view, she is either a genius or opportunist. Should a politician go anywhere near reality TV? If you are a crusty, wing tip wearing beltway boy, the answer is obvious. If you are in Hollywood, you are jealously wondering which agent she engaged. If you are in flyover land, you are withholding jjudgment.

What is clear is that Palin has tapped a connection with “real America” in a Reaganesque manner that makes any politician jealous. She understands the culture, and she knows what it takes to keep ones name at the center of conversations. She engenders just the right amount of criticism to keep her fans rabidly defensive. Her detractors wind up looking like yipping, hysterical Chihuahuas with pink, spiky collars in pathetic attempts to appear menacing. Meanwhile, poli-star wannabe’s from Michael Moore to Meghan McCain are salivating as their pathetic attempts to pedal their way to relevance falls far short of what only comes naturally to Sarah Palin—Poli Super Stardom.

She has it. They want it. They can’t get it. It is that simple.

The “It” is the Hollywood and new media age super stardom that tees up political success. Reagan started the tactic. Schwarzenegger leveraged it before he dropped the baby (California) on its head. But only Sarah Palin has perfected it.

When liberals hate her, conservatives become more intrigued. When they call her names, conservatives jump in the ring to defend her. When they call for her murder, conservatives turn all guns on her protection, her promotion, and yes, her presidency.

This has Hollywood scratching their heads. Who is her agent? How could she do all of this without proper media training? Why no voice coach, they wonder. Surely she needs some polishing that only folks in the business can provide if ever she is to make something of herself.

Politicians are watching too, wondering as they comb their hair in the rear view mirror why they aren’t the fairest of them all. The reason? They might be dynamic, good looking, smart, savvy, but they represent none of the cultural change that Sarah Palin embodies for conservatives. They think that their smart wonkishness, or their strong soundbites will win the hearts of conservatives, but it won’t. Conservatives intuitively know that politics is merely one front in the war on our culture. Hollywood is another. Palin has shrewdly tapped both and in so doing has unprecedented ability to leverage the media to move the culture, or vice versa. Politicians might not like the fact that Sarah Palin is the only one who gets it, but it is an undeniable truth they cannot overcome.

Those who would oppose her should be very afraid.

Palin knows that culture is predictive of politics and Hollywood moves culture. Therefore, as the country revolted against Obama Progressives and shifted dramatically rightward, the one remaining liberal stronghold standing in the way of a pure conservative revolution is the puppet master of culture — Hollywood. Sarah brought scissors to the theatre and she is challenging the master. Snip, snip, snip and it is done. Palin just took a leading place on the stage, reaching both red and blue state America with her unpretentious authenticity on her way to reclaiming our culture. The culture will be restored and the socialist folly will be buried in the tombs of bad scripts where it belongs. John Wayne style Hollywood is resurging, and America is poised to once again be Reagan’s “Shining City on the Hill”—a beacon for the rest of the world.

So that is why the liberals are so concerned that Sarah is taking Hollywood. It is not President Palin they fear, but a God-fearing, family oriented, crackerjack smart, female “Puppet Master Palin” that has them trembling. If she and her conservative, apple pie eating, patriotic cohorts held the strings, libs could no longer rule the world stage from the rafters.

Somebody get Sarah some sunglasses!

Happy Second Birthday, Tripp!

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 27, 2010

What a year it has been for Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston!  He’s travelled with his Mom, Bristol Palin, to Los Angeles while she rehearsed for and danced on  Dancing with the Stars, and he’s also been a regular on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”    He’s also appeared on magazine covers with his famous Mom. 

On behalf of our authors at the Sarah Palin Information Blog,  I want to wish Tripp a very happy second birthday and many more to come!  May the Lord’s blessings always be with you, Tripp, and may your years be full of happiness and success.
