Obama Inaugural Balls Speak Volumes: The Fantasia Barrino BabyMama Mortgage Bailout Ball; “Impartial” NBC Reporter Parties @ Al Gore Green Ball
By Debbie Schlussel
Today’s USA Today has a rundown of some of the Inaugural Balls which took place last night or are taking place tonight in honor of the coronation of the new supreme deity a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama.
And the balls and their guests are emblematic of all that is Obama Hopeless Change.
* The Hip Hop BabyMamma Mortgage Bailout for American Idol Winners Ball
First there is the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball, hosted by the Hip Hop Summit Action Network (HHSAN), which is headed by the openly anti-Semitic Benjamin Chavis Muhammad–who was fired from the NAACP for stealing $54,000 (which he used to pay off a woman he sexually harassed), then blamed it on “right-wing Jews.” As I detailed in the Jerusalem Post, he was scooped up by Russell Simmons to head up the HHSAN, which has put forth a number of openly anti-Semitic Black Muslim candidates for office.
But I call this ball, the American Idol Baby Mama Mortgage Bailout Ball. That’s because one of the advertised guests of honor of this ball is Fantasia Barrino, the woman who won the third season of “American Idol,” has a kid out of wedlock (which she celebrates in the song “Baby Mama”), and was a recent candidate for mansion foreclosure because of her spending.
You’d think a woman who earned millions could pay her bills, but you’d be wrong. I mean if you or I earned that much, we’d be on easy street. But not the belle of the Hip Hop Summit Action Network ball (as much as they even have “belles,” rather than bitches and hos). I mean everyone has to own a $240,000 Mercedes, or they’re a nobody, right?
Attorneys for Fantasia Barrino agreed over the weekend to settle a debt with a Florida creditor to prevent the “American Idol” star’s $1.3 million home from being auctioned off today.
“Assuming the promised payments all get paid as indicated, we will be satisfied,” said Larry Goldman, the lawyer representing creditor Broward Energy Partners. “I didn’t want to take her house.”
The 24-year-old singer owes the Florida company $65,000 – money she borrowed in 2006 to pay back taxes she owed the IRS.
Barrino made a $10,000 payment in August 2007. But she never paid the rest, so the company won the right in court to auction off her home for the balance.
Barrino has agreed to make payments over the course of several months, Goldman said. . . .
The auction set for today has been canceled as a result of the settlement agreement. But Barrino still stands to lose her home in a future auction if the settlement is not followed.
Fantasia, who starred as herself in a Lifetime movie chronicling her rags-to-riches story, has had some financial problems since winning the third season of “American Idol” in 2004.
In 2005, she nearly lost another home she owns in Charlotte to foreclosure as well as her $240,000 Mercedes Benz. In both cases, she had failed to make payments as promised and only resolved the matters after being sued, according to court documents.
Tax records show the singer still owes $14,678 for last year’s property taxes on the two-story golf-community home that was to be auctioned.
* The “Hey, America Feels Kinda Cool Again” Ball
I kid you not–this is actually the name of a ball for America-hatin’ celebs who, like Michelle Obama, have never been proud of their country before. The name says it all. It’s sponsored by Rock the Vote. So much for Rock the Vote’s pretense at being non-partisan. They’re saying that for the last eight years, being American wasn’t cool. Just like what Will Smith told Oprah. Among those who are appearing at this tribute to hating America the last eight years: Sheryl Crow, the Beastie Boys, and some others I never heard of. Since America apparently wasn’t cool for the last eight years, perhaps these has-beens can turn over all of their “uncool” earnings over the last eight years, which they made off of stupid Americans who patronized them, and give it to the poor. Don’t hold your breath.
In other, “America wasn’t cool before” Inaugural news, the Washington Post tells us that Americans living abroad now say they feel cool again. Let ’em stay there. When Muslims complete their takeover of Europe, and these idiots want to return to American soil, we’ll see what is and isn’t truly cool to them.
* Al Gore’s Green Inaugural Ball
Sending my scientific team there now to determine how big of a carbon footprint Al Gore created by flying to DC for this, riding a limo, heating the ball location in freezing temperatures, and providing lighting and other electricity for attendees and the band. This one was held last night and featured NBC News reporter Maria Menounos and Oprah reporter Lisa Ling. Hmmmm . . . so much for their “impartiality” and “objectivity” in covering the issues, like alleged global warming and other green movement hysteria.
Lost on one of the attendees, will.i.am, is the title of his upcoming new album with Fergie, “The E.N.D.–The Energy Never Dies.” Um, will.i.am or whatever your real name is, that’s the point: The energy never dies, and anyone who claims we’re depleting it or destroying the planet by using energy–or wiping with more than one square of toilet paper–is clueless. Hello . . .?
Yup, all of these balls, these people, their hypocrisy–it’s a microcosm of the Obama act. Four years and possibly eight (if Sarah Palin’s the nominee) of this to go.
