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.


Fantasia Barrino:

“Belle” of the Hip-Hop BabyMamma Foreclosure Ball

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.


Maria Menounos: NBC Reporter Bares Her Bias @ Al Gore Ball

* 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.

I am going to be puking and groaning in disgust for the next few years:(

Debbie, that picture was sooooooo wrong. The HORROR!! The HORROR!!
A couple of videos to go along with this inauguration.
Barack Obama is a Superstar! NOT!!

RE : Sarah Palin !
Debbie ! Can you give me a link to your complete
analysis of Sarah Palin ! I know she doesn’t walk
on water, but you seem to really not like her !
Look at all the candidates we have been presented
the last decade :
John McCain
George Bush ( both 41 & 42 )
Clintons ( both )
John Kerry
Al Gore
Mike Huckabee
Mitt Romney
Do any of these turn you on ? ( as compared to Palin ? )
Yes ! I would like Reagan to make a
comeback, but let’s be realistic !

Powerline is predicting 12 years of Democratic rule. My view is that the Republicans will never recover. It’s all about the demographics, and they move against the GOP with each passing cycle. When a new amnesty goes into effect, as it surely will, the Dems will add a net 4 or 5 million new voters. The Republicans will never again win in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Florida or Nevada. Texas and Georgia will eventually become swing states.
My prediction: there will not be another Republican president for at least 40 years, if ever. It’s possible that the Republican party will slowly go the way of the Whigs (and I’m a Republican).

The only reason I’ll be watching today is see millions of liberals having a simultaneous inaugasm.

stevecanuck on January 20, 2009 at 12:41 pm

I won’t watch it. It’s more than just an inaguration – it’s our funeral.

Richard on January 20, 2009 at 12:47 pm

As time passes, the Dems will appoint more and more judges at every level. That will mean the effective end of individual liberty in the United States. I doubt that debbieschlussel.com and similar sites will be permitted. We all enjoyed a long spell of political and economic freedom, which has now come to an end.

sonomaca on January 20, 2009 at 12:51 pm

I believe you are wrong. Assuming Obama lasts out his term (and I am predicting he won’t) I believe he will be the last President from the Democratic party (at least in its current form). Why?
Unfortunately I believe we will lose at least one city (if not two) to WMDs in the next four years. That is an inevitable result of electing an over idealistic neophyte in this day and age to be commander in chief.

i_am_me on January 20, 2009 at 12:56 pm

Today’s inaugural had shlock written all over it. Flubbed oath, meandering post-modern speech and a kindergarten-level poem recital. Hope and change? Nah – I’ve a feeling the job may just be too big for the man’s shoes to fill – if he even knows what he’s doing. I’m not sorry to make it such a downer. There’s not a lot I don’t agree with – and I don’t intend to – over the next four years!

NormanF on January 20, 2009 at 12:57 pm

This is the darkest day in our nation’s history. They should have just burned the Constitution while administering the oath. I’m so glad to be living high in the hills in the middle of snow country. From where I sit, I can smell and Agent of Change coming miles away. With any luck, he/she/ or it will be wearing hunter’s orange.

Right now I don’t see anyone on the Republican horizon who could win the presidency in four years. Virtually none of them is opposing Hussein except to make the record.
Most conservatives, including, ironically, those who seemed to have the most hawkish attitudes, are now supporting him.
One of the few people I held out hope for, David Vitter, disgraced himself with prostitutes. There seems to be unity in supporting Rice, affirmative action, illegal immigration, and the bailouts.
In order for someone to beat Obama, they would have to be articulate, capable of mass appeal, and have decent political positions. I don’t see such a person, and I really think the Republican Party is on the verge of effective collapse. I’m afraid we will go the way of Europe, except that we may have one-party dominance, as a number of Latin American countries have had for decades. We’ll have governments that plunder those who work hard, and give the money to the professional victim class which grows larger and larger.

If people wanted proof that conservatives love conservatism but not America, they should read this blog entry along with the hateful comments.

Norman Blitzer on January 20, 2009 at 2:19 pm

There you go again, putting down Sarah Palin. Nice. Proud of yourself? Does it make you feel better?

WhiteAndRight on January 20, 2009 at 2:43 pm

I’m babysitting my nephews, and as I pass by the TV…Obama’s face shows up in animated form on Cartoon Network.
So it looks to me that all the networks are gonna pander to this guy. Thank god I have DVR.

In eight years, Bobby Jindal could be ready to run for President.
10 Things You Didn’t Know About Bobby Jindal
By Jill Konieczko
Posted May 22, 2008
Sen. John McCain disclosed that he is in the “embryonic stages” of selecting a running mate, whom he hopes to introduce at the Republican National Convention. While he refused to disclose any names, McCain told reporters that the list is about 20 deep, and “it’s every name imaginable.” This is one of a series of profiles on the candidates we imagine might be on his list and some things you might not know about the maybe veeps. See the full list here.
Bobby Jindal is the governor of Louisiana and a former congressman and is thought to be a possible running mate for McCain.
1. The son of immigrants from India’s Punjab state, Jindal made history when he became the first U.S. governor with roots in India.
2. Born Piyush Jindal in Baton Rouge in 1971, he gave himself the nickname BobbyÔø?after the youngest son on The Brady BunchÔø?when he was 4.
3. Raised a Hindu, Jindal converted to Catholicism as a teenager. As a young convert, he wrote of the emotional and intellectual struggles of his spiritual journey in several articles that were published in the New Oxford Review, a Catholic magazine.
4. Jindal graduated from Baton Rouge High School in 1987. He attended Brown University, graduating with honors in biology and public policy. He turned down admissions to medical and law schools at Harvard and Yale to attend Oxford University as a Rhodes scholar.
5. While attending Oxford, Jindal contemplated joining the priesthood. He ultimately decided that it was not for him.
6. In 2006, Jindal and his wife, Supriya, delivered their third child at home. Barely able to call 911 before the delivery, Jindal received a nurse’s coaching by phone. Just as he was completing the umbilical cord procedure with a shoestring, paramedics arrived. The Jindals have a daughter and two sons.
7. Before he turned 30, Jindal headed Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals and became president of the University of Louisiana System. He served in the Department of Health and Human Services under President George W. Bush and was executive director of the National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare in the late ’90s. Prior to public service, Jindal worked for the consulting firm McKinsey & Co.
8. In 2003, Gov. Mike Foster, who was finishing his second consecutive term and therefore could not run again, encouraged Jindal to run for governor. Defeated by Democrat Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, Jindal’s first bid for governor was unsuccessful.
9. In 2004, he sought the congressional seat from Louisiana’s First District. He won with a whopping 78 percent of the vote and was re-elected in 2006 with almost 90 percent.
10. In 2007, Jindal ran for governor again and won. The victory was largely attributed to old-fashioned politicking, which included Jindal “giving testimony” in Pentecostal and Baptist churches in rural and remote sections of Louisiana.

I have a question for those who watched the coronation ceremony: Were there any strippers?
I love strippers.

That’s really boo-hoo-hoo about Fantasia. American Idol have ruined her Fantasia…I mean Fantasia’s fantasy or whatever that was her Fantasia of being a big-time pop star, rolling in doughs.
Fantasia got pwned.

Bobby's Brain on January 21, 2009 at 12:04 am

We are Europe, where there is no Conservative influence at this time. The masses are asses and the majority of Americans are freeloaders. I predict a civil war in our country within 25 years.
Jindal for Prez in 2012. Debbie is right about Palin. She doesn’t cut the mustard. COBRAMA will be that much more powerful in 4 years and unless country has depression numbers or we are attacked without a strong response we need a strong Conservative who is articulate and doesn’t need explaining. Palin will just be a letdown because her convictions aren’t strong. She will be a female Bush because we thought we had a true blue conservative and we got a moderate at best with no fight. I want fire in the eyes and a fighter. I want someone who is articulate, someone who can explain what he believes not given talking points to memorize. I want a leader who will call COBRAMA’s bluff and raise him.

Did we really expect anything less than the fiasco that was last night? This is nothing more than a nobody to overnight “Rap-Star”/ Jesus-Muhammad-Buddha-Jehovah.
The problem remains that while Hussein, his wife Michelle and the sheep in this Nation believe the hype, the rest of us who actually live in reality know that the Nations problems can not be solved by making Bong Hits in moms basement legal. Which by the way IS the number one issue on most of the Obama is God websites.
We are in for a very long ride and if the decline yesterday in the Stock Market is any indication of what is to come we are in a whole lot of trouble
