Reporter Blasts Clinton Royalty

 

 

 

 

” Nevada reporter Jon Ralston rips Hillary Clinton for demanding “royal treatment” in an upcoming visit to Las Vegas:

” The price of Hillary Clinton’s scheduled speech and UNLV fundraiser could be going up. Las Vegas Review Journal, which obtained Clinton’s contract with the UNLV Foundation, reports in addition to her speaking fee of $225,000, Clinton is demanding a private jet, a presidential suite and adjoining rooms for her entourage, and Clinton refuses to mingle with the common folk. She wants to approve any media types attending the event.

” And now, a word about royalty. We don’t have kings and queens in America, or at least we shouldn’t. But when I see the red carpet UNLV is rolling out for Hillary Clinton in two months I start to wonder. Unless you’re a mindless partisan, the details of that contract with the UNLV Foundation should disturb you. They were uncovered, as I said by the RJ’s Lara Myers, and published over the weekend. The contract reads as if Hillary is being given the, yes,  royal treatment. Now it is bad enough that the UNLV Foundation folks agreed to that outrageous $225,000 fee as students struggle to make ends meet.”

Joblessness? Deficits? Wars? Let’s Party!

 

 

” Washington never looks more out of touch than it will this weekend, when movie stars, music moguls, media mavens and their advertisers join President Obama at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.”

 

 

 

 

” As we say in Washington, the dinner is “lousy optics” – rarely more so than Saturday night, when the backdrop will be joblessness, a budget deficit, the Boston Marathon bombing and a blood-red line in Syria.”

 

 

  While we were unable to locate the guest list and menu for the 2013 affair , we did come across both for last year . This should give the reader some idea of the sacrifice the first family is enduring for you .

 

 

The 2012 Guest List:

 

    The guest list seems to be lacking in actual journalists , doesn’t it ? Then again , the MSM is lacking in actual journalists as well .

 

 

The 2012 Menu :

 

” The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner menu is a selection of four courses, chosen by the board out of a total of nine. Here is the planned menu:

Salad: Black lentil terrine with lump crabmeat; tango green and red artisan greens; red and yellow tear drop tomatoes, paired with a dill vinaigrette. 

Break presentation: Seven-grain rolls; white and wheat rolls; sourdough rolls; flatbreads and butter.

Entree: Texas-rubbed petite filet with a calvados demi, paired with duo of jump shrimp seasoned with red curry, roasted haricot verts, baby pepper, patty pan squash, tasso mache choux risotto.

Dessert: The Galaxy–rich chocolate truffle mousse layered with chocolate genoise and almond macaroon; ganache truffle center finished in chocolate glaze, garnished with fresh raspberries.

Even Piers Morgan Criticizes Obama Over Lavish Vacation Spending

 

 

 

 

” On Wednesday, April 3, President Obama announced he would be returning 5% of his paycheck to the federal treasury in a show of shared sacrifice with federal workers facing furloughs because of the sequester. The news came as he once again flew about the country pushing his anti-Second Amendment policies and only days after another lavish vacation indulged by the first family was in the news.

Morgan lambasted Obama’s attempt to spread the pain of austerity to his own household calling it a “pointless exercise” and despaired that the President wasn’t doing something more substantive.

Early in January a calculation of tax dollars spent on Obama vacations came to over 20 million tax dollars. But Keith Koffler estimated that the even the $20 million price tag for the first family’s lavish vacations was actually way too low because it didn’t take into account things like flying the President’s advance teams around the world to prepare Obama’s destination for his impending arrival.

Morgan’s ratings have been cratering for some time despite his oft-repeated high dudgeon on guns. Last month his ratings sunk to a new low finding only 87,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demographic.”

What Sequester?!? Obama & Biden Live Like Roman Emperors on Public Dime

William & Kate Have Nothing On Obama

 

 

 

 

 

” Great! Maybe Kate could return the favor and give Snooki and her fellow Americans some advice. About fiscal prudence, for example. Say what you like about a high-living, big-spending, bloated, decadent parasitical, wastrel monarchy, but, compared to the citizen-executive of a republic of limited government, it’s a bargain. So, while the lovely Duchess of Cambridge nurses her baby bump, the equally radiant President of the United States nurses his ever more swollen debt belly. He and his family are about to jet off on their Christmas vacation to watch America slide off the fiscal cliff from the luxury beach resort of Kailua. The cost to taxpayers of flying one man, his wife, two daughters and a dog to Hawaii is estimated at $3,639,622. For purposes of comparison, the total bill for flying the entire Royal Family (Queen, princes, dukes, the works) around the world for a year is £4.7 million – or about enough for two Obama vacations.

According to the USAF, in 2010 Air Force One cost American taxpayers $181,757 per flight hour. According to the Royal Canadian Air Force, in 2011 the CC-150 Polaris military transport that flew William and Kate from Vancouver to Los Angeles cost Her Majesty’s Canadian subjects $15,505 per hour – or about 8/100ths of the cost”

Who else but ?

“There are monarchies and republics aplenty, but there’s only one 24/7 fundraising presidency.”

  …. but Mark Steyn .

  “Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Diamond Jubilee a few days ago — that’s 60 years on the throne. Just to put it in perspective, she’s been
queen since Harry S. Truman was president. At any rate, her jubilee has been a huge success,save for a few churlish republicans in various
corners of Her Majesty’s realms from London to Toronto to Sydney pointing out how absurd it is
for grown citizens to be fawning over a distant head of state who lives in a fabulous, glittering
cocoon entirely disconnected from ordinary life. ”

“Which brings us to President Obama. ”

One more taste

” However, there are some cheap seats available. A year and a half ago, big-money Democrats in
Rhode Island paid $7,500 per person for the privilege of having dinner with President Obama
at a private home in Providence. He showed up for 20 minutes and then said he couldn’t stay for dinner.

   “I’ve got to go home to walk the dog and scoop the poop,” he told them, because when you’ve paid seven-and-a-half grand for dinner nothing puts you in the mood to eat like a guy talking about canine fecal matter. “
