His Highness is visiting Dallas this Thursday, April 25th. The 'official' reasons for this are to attend the opening of the George W. Bush Library at SMU on Thursday morning, along with all the other living Presidents (this is customary for ANY Presidential Library's opening), and to attend a memorial service in West, Texas in the afternoon. OK, both of those are understandable, and laudable.
However, a third event to be held Thursday evening is the prime attraction, the biggest reason His Highness would lower himself to set foot in the Republic of Texas.
A Democrat fundraiser, held in Obama's honor, will be held at the house of Naomi Aberly and Larry Lebowitz. Those two are married, though you wouldn't know it by looking at the names. Aberly is a big time Democrat fundraising 'bundler', responsible for over a million dollars for Obama's two White House runs. Lebowitz is a very rich hedge fund manager. Both are sympathetic donors to various Democrat causes, including Planned Parenthood.
The home the dinner will be held at is valued at over 10 million. It has over 12,000 square feet, 5 full baths, 3 half baths, two fireplaces, and a pool. It is in the most exclusive area of Dallas, home of the ultra rich.
Sixty lucky donors will be allowed the honor of being under the same roof as the Royal Couple. Over a million dollars is expected to be raised for Democrat coffers at the event, which is closed to the media.
Now, there's nothing illegal about this under our current system. Obama can come to Dallas, or go to Hollywood, and walk away with huge bags of cash from the liberal elite. I don't even consider it immoral ... EXCEPT for the liberal hypocrisy of it.
Here is Obama schmoozing for dollars from the evil, rich, lily white 1% he so publicly despises. Here are rich liberals, eagerly handing over piles of their own money to this guy who professes to hate them and what they stand for. Here is a hedge fund manager - the epitomy of evil capitalism that Obama's Administration had pledged to eradicate, turning over gobs of cash to help that Administration.
A sane person just has to ask 'why'? Not just conservatives, but liberals as well, ought to be questioning the hypocrisy of this. The '99%'s' ought to be wondering what the hell is going on, when their Lord and Savior is hobnobbing with the very people he has told them to hate.
Do you think Aberly, Lebowitz, and the other 60 or so fools in attendance give a damn about poor black people? Do you think they lose sleep over the plight of the poor, innocent, hard working undocumented workers from our south? Are they concerned over the lack of adequate healthcare for the victims of virtual slavery imprisoned in our inner cities? Oh, hell no ...
If they were sincere, they would be turning over all of their money and possessions, giving them to either the government, or to charity. Of course they could keep a little, say $50K each, to help them until they could pick up a job flipping burgers. But once they are settled in that job, they should be perfectly happy with their circumstance, thrilled that the government is providing them with so much, and internally comfortable knowing that they 'made a difference'.
Instead, they sit behind armies of lawyers and accountants, pulling every trick legal and illegal, to skirt the tax system in order to keep as much of their money as possible. They look down their noses at the very people they profess to idolize.
It's not about social justice - its about control and power. These fundraisers are all about buying influence, and the time old tradition of trying to be seen with the 'in crowd'. Hypocrites ...
