What difference, at this point, does it make

by TPO O\'Halloran on April 4, 2014


In January, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got into a heated exchange with Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin during her testimony on Benghazi before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Johnson asked Clinton to ascertain whether the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya was a response to an anti-Islam YouTube video. A visibly-furious Clinton took exception to Johnson’s inquiry and shot back, “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

There are things throughout history that one can point to and say, “That changed everything.” Things like electricity, indoor plumbing and gunpowder.

Some we can point to as simply upgrades or improvements to the original design. Things like fuel injection, the self-contained rifle cartridge or Hot Shots Part Deux.

Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton did the same with Saul Alinsky‘s teaching of community agitating.

Interestingly, as an aside, what is today called, by most everyone, community organizing, Alinsky called agitating. However, as the left often does, somewhere along the line, agitator was deemed too negative – too radical, so it magically became organizer. Who could be against organization?

To be more precise, Alinsky preached that an agitator’s job isn’t to organize, but to enter and already organized community, agitate to disorganize it and re-organize the community to better achieve the agitators goal.

I heard many commentators mention Alinsky and his 1971 book “Rules for Radicals” when describing the pitiful “Occupy Wall Street” spectacle from a couple years ago.

However, Alinsky would not have approved of the amalgamation of dirty hippies and ne’er-do-wells. He taught that true “revolutionaries” should not “flaunt their radicalism.” They should “cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.”

Is any of this sounding familiar?

Many think Hillary is somehow, like her husband, more moderate than Barack, but it was she who was a direct disciple of Alinsky.

So impressed was Alinsky with Hillary, that he offered her a job. She turned him down to go on to attend Yale Law School – but that wasn’t the only reason. Apparently, she had become convinced that, although she agreed with the Alinsky philosophy, she found his methods of local agitating to be not “large” enough.

I know Obama feels the same way. Many Alinsky disciples evidently feel the same way – that his local agitating and disorganizing philosophy can and should be played out on a grander, national scale.

Again, does this sound familiar?

How many times over the past five years – certainly since his reelection, have we heard that Obama wants to remake America? Look around and see how many government departments and agencies appear to be “dis-organized.”

Now, in his second term, I’m certain he feels no need to hold back. All there is left to do is decide what more he wants to dis-organize in order to re-organize or re-make.

Evidently, he has chosen immigration and an open border, and he and his cohorts are bringing all their button-down, clean cut radicalism to bear regarding it.

If things continue unabated, the only question that will remain is what America will look like after Obama’s reorganization and which hand-picked radical he will choose as his successor to carry on Alinsky’s vision.

Hillary’s $2,777 PER MINUTE Speaking Contracts EXPOSED

by Veronica Coffin on July 17, 2014

 

 

Hillary’s $2,777 PER MINUTE speaking contracts demand a ‘presidential’ teleprompter, let her cancel ‘for any reason whatsoever’ and she’s the only one allowed on stage

  • Speaking contracts covered August 2013 speech at SUNY Buffalo and upcoming August 2014 appearance at University of Nevada, Las Vegas
  • The two events together pulled in $500,000 for the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation – but reporters were shut out
  • Angry UNLV students have asked Clinton to return her speaking fee since their tuition has tripled in the last decade
  • One contract demanded a ‘presidential’ teleprompter; another one required a $1,250 stenographer; both insist that only a hand-picked moderator – never audience members – can ask her questions
  • At an event that drew 6,500 people, Clinton allowed a photographer to take just 50 photos of her with VIP well-wishers

By David Martosko, U.s. Political Editor

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state who is preparing to run for president on a populist platform of fighting income inequality, demanded $2,777 per minute for two university speaking engagements and insisted on contracts that cut off reporters’ access to her and limited the number of photos she would take with well-wishers.

The Harry Walker Agency drew up legal agreements for Clinton’s speeches at the State University of New York at Buffalo in August 2013 and at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas next month.

Combined, the two gigs netted the Clintons’ family foundation $500,000 for three hours’ work, and allowed her to cancel or reschedule the events ‘for any reason whatsoever.’

The once-and-maybe-future White House resident is routinely granted iron-grip control over the
circumstances surrounding her speeches.

SCROLL DOWN TO READ THE CONTRACTS

Both contracts, one published online by The Washington Post and the other by The Daily Caller, paint a picture of a control-freak PR machine surrounding Hillary.

Her ‘participation at the event including the speech and reception will be closed to the press, unless otherwise agreed to in writing,’ the UNLV contract reads

‘There will be no other media opportunities or availabilities (i.e.. press conferences, statements. etc.).’

The Buffalo appearance earned Clinton $275,000 for an hour on stage and a 30-minute photo line – limited to 50 photos of her alongside no more than 100 people.

UNLV will pay her another $225,000 for a similar 90-minute commitment, although angry students there have asked her to refund her fees since their tuition has nearly tripled since a decade ago.

Both schools had to agree to her prickly list of demands before her agent would sign on the dotted line.

The contracts they signed insist that Hillary must be ‘the only person on stage during her remarks.’

The Buffalo paperwork specifically demands a ‘presidential glass panel teleprompter,’ although video of that speech shows she strayed from the podium and didn’t use it.

Hillary has the exclusive right to approve ‘sets, backdrops, banners, scenery, logos, [and] settings’ connected to her speeches, and gives her ‘sole discretion’ over what she talks about in public.

She ‘may elect to reschedule or cancel her appearance … for any reason whatsoever and at any time prior to the engagement.’

Crowd control: During a post-speech Q-and-A, only a moderator who has been approved in advance -- and never the audience -- is allowed to speak to the former first lady or ask her questions Crowd control: During a post-speech Q-and-A, only a moderator who has been approved in advance — and never the audience — is allowed to speak to the former first lady or ask her questions

 

She gets 20 complimentary VIP tickets and a university-paid stenographer – at a price of $1,000 in Buffalo and $1,250 in Las Vegas – just for her personal records.

And her speaking agency can veto any potential Q-and-A moderators, and only those moderators – never members of the audience – can talk to her directly.

One audience member in Buffalo didn’t get that memo, the Buffalo News reported in August 2013.

‘A heckler tried to interrupt Clinton,’ the paper reported, ‘screaming about the terrorist murders of American diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012.’

‘Clinton simply talked over him, and then took him down, saying solving problems “doesn’t involve yelling; it includes sitting down and talking”.’

The public college, officially named the University at Buffalo, released a statement on Wednesday that said ‘no state funding or student tuition revenue is used to fund the Distinguished Speakers Series and the fees of guest speakers, including that of Secretary Clinton.’

‘The speaking fee and all other appearance costs are financed entirely through ticket sales, sponsorships and endowments.’
