Viva La Obama!… George Clooney to Host Obama Fundraisers in Europe


(Radar Online)

Far left Obama supporter George Clooney will hold fundraisers for Barack Obama in France and Switzerland in August.
Via The Hollywood Reporter:

George Clooney has signed on for another special guest appearance as the Barack Obama re-election campaign takes its summer fundraising tour across the Atlantic in pursuit of Euro-cash.

The Obama campaign posted an invitation on its website Friday revealing that the presidential pal-in-chief will appear at a pair of Americans Abroad for Obama events Aug. 27 in Geneva, Switzerland. Clooney, who usually spends summers at his villa on Italy’s Lake Como, made a similar appearance across the Swiss border on behalf of then-candidate Obama during the run-up to the 2008 general election.

Charles Adams, co-president of the campaign’s European outreach effort, told the newspaper Tribune de Geneve that Clooney will address a crowd of about 150 at an evening reception, which will be followed by a more intimate — and expensive — dinner at which the star will be the guest of honor. Tickets for the latter event will go for $20,000 for singles and $30,000 for couples.

Meanwhile, the Continental branch of the Obama fundraising effort will kick off next week in Paris with an Independence Day reception at the Rosenbloom Collection on the chic Rue du Chevaleret. Organizers Forrest Alogna, Pamela Boulet, Zachary James Miller, Valerie Picard, Joe Smallhoover and Curtis Young will host an early-evening event whose ticket prices range from $250 to $1,500.

It may be difficult to find US donors in Europe. More than 1,780 U.S. citizens renounced their citizenship last year. This is up from 200-400 a year before Obama came into office.

    Who says that obama is looking for American donors in Europe? It seems rather obvious that the point is to solicit foreign cash for his campaign because Americans are unwilling to pay for his bs anymore.

    Clooney, who lives in Italy, obviously has a crush on Obama and works to secure special moments with his idol.

    Personally I could care less. I no longer go to the movies or rent them. I refuse to give my money to fascists.

    hey Ambassador Clooney..

    September 27, 2010

    Obama, what Africa needs is more hunger, not less!

    [US President Barack Obama said many things at the
    just-ended UN Millennium Development Goals Summit
    in New York.

    The ones that stuck were his comments that food aid is not
    development. It’s “dependence,” he said, adding that America’s
    new approach will be to empower communities to meet their
    own food needs, rather than receiving handouts for their lunch
    and dinner.
    ]

    and imho there is NO excuse for this (not to mention children,
    some of whom can see the White House from where they live,
    going hungry right here in the US..

    bit more here..

    I thought this was illegal, soliciting money from foreign countries to influence our presidential election? Please don’t try to tell me only “AMERICAN” are going to donate. Do you think Europe might have a reason to see Obeyme re-elected, like having the USA bail them out? Maybe Clooney should be looking at being charged with selling influence or being an unregistered lobbyist for foreign countries? He better keep an up to date and accurate list of donors….

  • Mad Hatter

    So Obama is accepting Foreign Money into his campaign? That’s “change we can believe in.”

    These loons from Hollyweird are just digging their own graves by campaigning for marxist… When the money dries up folks stop going to movies, stop buying music…Don’t look to Europe for sells their in the same boat, unless they can boost their sells in the Middle East since the Muslim brotherhood took over……

    Waitaminnit – Obozo is soliciting campaign contributions from outside the United States? I thought receiving such contributions was illegal. But then, we’re talking about someone who is above the law.

    All of you who like Clooney and buy tickets to his movies, rent or buy his dvds can see where a big portion of their money is going. If you want to vote with your money, you can start by now buying what a Socialist like Clooney is selling. Keep in mind, Clooney has his, he is worth 100’s of millions of dollars, no matter what he will always be rich, but you on the other hand should just be equal to everyone else that isn’t George Clooney, no opportunity to achieve what 0bama or Clooney has. When the government is King, people like Clooney, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ricky Martin, Puff Daddy, Jamie Foxx, Chris Rock, Cee-Lo Green, Mariah Carey, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah will all be part of the hierarchy aka the wealthy dukes and counts, and you the peasant, will just be in your rightful place as their underlings with no chance to ever move up. That is Socialism, that is what people like George Clooney supports.

    If you ever wondered why over the years of your life why people seem to naturally hate the rich, just look at Europe over the last millennium of European Socialism… their past is a glimpse of our future under 0bama and his Hollywood minions.

    Vote with your money! Know who you are supporting before you buy that ticket or rent that movie!

    You’ve got to do it because it’s money you need, but it’s the same as a fundraiser in a small town in America,” Jack Oliver, credited with President George W. Bush’s strategy in 2000 and 2004 of holding fundraisers abroad. “It’s not a game changer in resources, but it is money you don’t want [to] leave on the table.”

    Obama had received more than $455,000 in political contributions outside the 50 states earlier this month, according to Federal Election Commission records.

    Mitt Romney has not remained idle. The Romney camp received almost $144,000 in campaign contributions outside the 50 states, according to FEC records. Several Romney supporters said he’s expected to attend a fundraiser in London when he travels there for the Olympics this summer.

    The former Massachusetts governor attended a $2,500-per-person fundraiser in London last July. The vent was hosted by high-powered donors like hedge fund manager Louis Bacon and New York Jets owner Woody Johnson. Bain Capital Executive Dwight Poler with Bain Capital, the firm Romney previously worked for, and Raj Bhattacharyya, managing director at Deutsche Bank, also co-hosted the event.

    Campaign and senior White House officials are expected to build up their frequent flier miles before Election Day.

    “He has a world perspective that I think is important in today’s interconnected age to ensure the U.S. stays in the lead,” Vicki Hansen, the Luxembourg-based international vice chairwoman of Democrats Abroad, an arm of the Democratic Party said. “We can’t work in isolation or with blinkers on.”

    Americans living in Paris also hosted a Gershwin tribute concert earlier this month, and London-based expats organized a “Baroque Obama” musical fundraiser in April.

    Viva La Romney
    “Put America Back to Work” Americans still have another Come Back in Them
    […]

    In one stroke a Romney Administration can outdo the Obama Administration by placing a simple tax on carbon emissions and using it to reduce other taxes. If you want less of something, tax it. There is indeed reason to be concerned that carbon emissions are warming the earth, in addition to all the pollution put in the atmosphere by coal, oil, and gas. The record-breaking heat in Texas, the long drought in the Southwest that has produced the devastating Colorado fires, the unprecedented temperatures in Russia where wheat fields around Moscow actually caught fire — all indicate that something unusual is happening to the world’s climate. It’s just that we don’t to close down our entire economy in order to do something about it. A simple, revenue-raising carbon tax would accomplish all President Obama ever wanted with his armies of EPA bureaucrats and cap-and-trade. The Heritage Foundation has recommended this for years.

    The important thing is that a Romney Administration will have the opportunity from Day One to reduce bureaucracy and revive the economy. As Peggy Noonan wrote last week, anyone who remembers the Reagan Era knows Americans still have another comeback left in us. Just send the bureaucrats home to academia and put America back to work. In fact, that doesn’t make a bad campaign slogan, does it? “Hey America! Are You Ready to Go Back to Work?” Because we are.

    Trump On Obamacare

    Let me get this straight . . .

    We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care plan we are forced to
    purchase and fined if we don’t. Which purportedly covers at least thirty
    million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides
    for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman
    says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read
    it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who
    smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay
    his taxes, for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any benefits
    take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social
    Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who
    is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!

    ‘What the hell could possibly go wrong?’

    Obama, you’re Fired

    Exclusive: President Obama Asks Campaign Donors to Send Him More Money

    In an anxious conference call from Air Force One, Obama asked campaign donors to send more money. Lloyd Grove obtained the tape and describes the presidential pitch.

    “The majority on this call maxed out to my campaign last time. I really need you to do the same this time,” the president said in a highly unusual (and presumably legal) fundraising pitch from Air Force One on his way back to Washington from Colorado Springs, where he’d been assessing the terrible damage caused by uncontained wildfires. A special phone on the government aircraft is dedicated to political calls that are paid for by the campaign.

    Guess What?

    My chity American donors are tapped!

    Worse, they think I am thief and are withholding donations. It’s true that I may a fed them some lies but who cares? I lie all the time!

    And, you can bet that I will follow the campaign rules to the letter while swindling the Euro-weenies [Wink, Wink].

    OK, let’s be frank I just lie to the Euro-weenies about bailing them out and take the money and run.

    I don’t give a tinker’s dam about campaign rules. The rule are meant to be broken – I will smash them to pieces. They won’t catch me or get my Swiss Bank Account.

    Let me be clear, if my donor continue to withhold funds and I get caught taking money from Russia, China, Pakistan, Syria, North Korea, Iran and Libya I will simply seek asylum in France and enjoy my hundreds of million of US dollars while surfing George Clooney’s butt. My be we will get married. America hates me and I hate America! The American Independence day sucks!

    My limousine has gotten another parking ticket and Barney Frank is headed for Grease… er, the Greeks islands. His butt will be in the air. Please make a donation. My campaign sucks. I cannot answer any more questions. Good day.

    “The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) prohibits any foreign national from contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly. It is also unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them. Persons who knowingly and willfully engage in these activities may be subject to fines and/or imprisonment.

    So why are they asking for money in Switzerland and France? And will Clooney be arrested for campaign violations?
