Stones to play at Clinton birthday bash (BARF ALERT)
The Spokesman-Review ^ | 9-28-2006 | Dan Balz

Posted on 09/28/2006 11:43:41 AM PDT by lilylangtree

WASHINGTON--Baby boomer and former President Bill Clinton is laying plans to celebrate his 60th birthday in grand style with a charitable fundraising extravaganza in New York late next month that will include an invitation-only concert by the Rolling Stones and contributor packages that run to $500,000 and higher.

Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, who has generally avoided high-profile participation in her parents' political and philanthropic activities, is serving as co-host of the three-day party. She will host a Saturday brunch on a weekend that also features a golf tournment at the Bayonne, N.J., Golf Club, multiple receptions and a dinner at the American Museum of Natural History.

"My mother and I are planning a weekend of events to commemorate his (Clinton's) 60th birthday," Chelsea Clinton writes in the invitation. "I know that he would want you to share this milestone--so I hope you can join us in New York City this October 27th through the 29th."

The 2,100 invitations began arriving this week. Weekend packages start at $60,000. Next is the "Vice Chair Package," for those who contribute $100,000 or raise $250,000. Those who pledge $500,000 or more will receive the "Birthday Chair Package," which includes the "Backstage Pass" dinner and photo with Clinton and platinum seating at the Saturday dinner and the Stones concert.

The Rolling Stones will perform at the Beacon Theater, an art deco landmark on upper Broadway that seats about 3,000 people. According to the invitation, the concern will be taped for an upcoming Martin Scorsese movie about the band.

Clinton turned 60 in August but organizers delayed the birthday fundraising event until late October to avoid any complaints from other Democrats that solicitation of money for the former president's foundation would soak up money that could otherwise by used to try to win back Congress in November.

The proceeds will go to the William J. Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative and several other programs launched by the former president since leaving office.

Bleah! "philanthropic" what philanthropic? The clintoons know only how to take and not give unless it's the public dough. I do have to wonder how much of these fools money will make its way to the hildebeasts re-election efforts as well as her WH goals. These people have no shame.

Didn't the popular Clinton turn 60 in August? Or is his date of birth in dispute?

It was August, which begs the question why is this being held right before the election, doesn't it?

I'm not much of a fan but I'm going to see the Stones on Wednesday here in Missoula. I really hope it doesn't turn into a Bush bash or Jon Tester campaign rally.

Howlin....I am seriesly starting to think that he and his wife MAY be the catalysts to bring down this country....

THEY are the ones that feed the idiocy on Capitol Hill on the left...and the reason they and their fans keep getting worse, is BECAUSE of the closeness of the last two elections...

AND the promise of having Hildabeast in the WH to continue their amazing raping of our country...and the libs and dems are just laying there asking to be raped over and over.

(I apologize if anyone is offended by what I said above...but, I meant it)

The classic definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. This will not be "insane" until people stop going to these events and contributing to Clintons immoral and ugly agenda.
So as long as people are willing to pay to stay in a Lincoln bedroom, or to get a pic next to Clinton and Mick Jagger. This foolishness will go on...and on....and on...ok...that is "insane" bwahahahahaha!

BUT will Republicans actually GO to Bill Clinton's birthday?

After all, Republicans are the party of the rich and Democrats are the party of the working class. ALL of my Democrat teachers told me this.

The Stones rarely say much to the crowd anyway (except for maybe a few rehearsed lines like "And now here's my country song" (for Dead Flowers), "Oh, my trousers have become ripped!", and the ever popular, "Good evening Springfield!"

The neo-con song didn't appear on the set lists I saw.

"The proceeds will go to the William J. Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative and several other programs launched by the former president since leaving office"

The majority of the funds going to The William J. Clinton Legal Defense Fund and The William J. Clinton Presidential Library.

Weekend packages start at $60,000...for a fun-filled weekend at the Clintoon double-wide, lie-brary and reading room.

Next is the "Vice Chair Package"...a nice, plump Lewinsky bean bag chair.

Those who pledge $500,000 or more will receive the "Birthday Chair Package"...a white plastic lawn chair with an astro-turf seat.

"...the "Backstage Pass"...see what really goes on behind closed doors at the palatial residence in Chappaqua.

What a a lovely package: lib rock group (I Can't Get No Satisfaction, will SlickWilly ever find it?) for the Rat boomers, mingling with their Rat-mates, funding the Bubba family agenda, and #1 feature: SHE's in the spotlight, spouting lib dogma and building her warchest. They're shameless masters of the art of political networking.

And speaking of networking, Sandy Burglar is laying quite the groundwork for what his role in any Clinton political schemes:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Samuel R. Berger
Chairman

Samuel R. Berger is Chairman and co-founder of Stonebridge International, LLC. He is involved across nearly all the firm's engagements and regions, with a particularly strong focus on Asia, Russia and Central Asia and the Middle East.

He is also Chairman of the DB Zwirn Global Advisory Board, an international investment fund and merchant capital provider with more than $4 billion in capital under management and 15 offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

Mr. Berger has had a distinguished career in both the public and private sectors. As former National Security Advisor, Mr. Berger was pivotal in shaping America's role in the post-Cold War era. Through his efforts to build relations with China, managing financial crises in Asia and Latin America, driving critical peace negotiations in the Balkans and the Middle East, and expanding foreign trade, he worked closely with leaders around the world.

Stonebridge International

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hank Levine, Senior Commerce Official and China Expert, Joins Stonebridge International; Additions In Beijing and Washington Extend Firm's China Reach Wednesday September 6, 10:56 am ET

WASHINGTON, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Stonebridge International, a leading international business strategy firm, announced today that former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Asia, Henry A. (Hank) Levine, has joined the firm as Senior Vice President.

The addition of two senior-level advisers in Beijing, William Dong and Lloyd Zhang, and Jessica Acimovic in Washington, expands our team in China and the range of expertise offered to the firm's clients.

Stonebridge Chairman, Samuel R. Berger stated, "Hank is a stellar addition to our already top China team. His experience and judgment is complemented by the additions of William and Lloyd in Beijing and Jessica in Washington, and together they broaden both the range of services we offer our clients and our ability to operate effectively across the dynamic China landscape."

Hank Levine, one of the US Government's top China experts, served most recently as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Asia, where he was responsible for market access and compliance issues affecting U.S. companies operating in Asia.

A career Foreign Service Officer and fluent Chinese speaker, Hank served in numerous positions in the region and in Washington, including as Consul General in Shanghai, the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, and on economic issues within the State Department's Office of Chinese Affairs and at USTR. Hank is a graduate of Bucknell University, and studied at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and the U.S. National War College.

I wonder what percentage of the proceeds are first filtered off into berger's account and the clinton's account in the Cayman Islands before any foundation see's any....if they ever do.

Even if they offered to pay me, there's not enough money on this planet to entice me to attend.

I heard an interview on the Rusty Humphries radio show last night...with Bill Gertz...

He just wrote a book about a LOT of the double agents..and mischief in the Clinton Admin.....(to be fair, there probably is STILL some, he says)...and a LOT of what he talked about had to do with the Clinton Admin.'s China policy...

I am NOT surprised that Berger has a BIG China business...BUT, the scary parts are: 1. In a couple years, he will be able to get his SECURITY CLEARANCE back again...which would 2. Serve him well if HILLARY gets elected.

Did you see that thread I pinged you to about the Clinton's possibly HELPING the radical Muslims in the Kosovo??? and you add that to the thread that was up yesterday about Clintons' relationships in Dubai and Saudi Arabia...and one wonders IF Clinton wanted to get Bin Ladin or not...
