Move Over, Oprah; Hillary Has Elton John

From London to New York, Sir Elton John is going all out for his favorite candidates.

Taking a breaking from campaigning for a London mayoral candidate, John is inviting thousands of his closest friends to attend a concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York on April 9 to benefit Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign.

"There is nothing I like better than throwing a party for a good friend. Will you come out to support my friend Hillary Clinton at a special, one-night-only solo concert in New York?" John wrote in an email sent far and wide by the Clinton campaign to would-be supporters.

"I promise this will be one night that you won't want to miss," he said, adding a perfunctory "click here for more details," which takes you to the Clinton campaign Web site where you learn just how special the show will be.

Tickets, which go on sale March 19, go for anywhere from $125 to $2,300 a seat, depending on whether you're more interested in seeing Elton John sing "Candle in the Wind" live or helping Hillary Clinton become president.

And those who help raise $10,000 for Clinton's presidential campaign "will be invited to a private reception with Elton John and the Clintons," according to the Clinton campaign Web site.

Sir John's first foray into American politics was when he helped Al Gore raise money in 2000 with a concert at which he declared, "I think you're going to win it, baby."

Baby? Wonder what he'll call Hillary?

Hillary and Elton John

WP's The Sleuth reports that Elton John is playing a benefit concert for the Clinton campaign in New York on April 9th.

Citing Mr. John's previous statements in his prior endorsements, the Sleuth wonders "what he'll call Hillary" this time.

Perhaps he'll sing:


"And it seems to me

You run your campaign

Like a candle in the wind...

Never knowing what persona

We will find you in;

And when the phone rings out at 3

Which one will answer it?

Your candle flickers long before

We'll find the one that's hid


Or hidden, as the case may be."

It is my understanding that under election laws only US citizens or permanent residents are allowed to contribute to candidate's campaigns. What kind of trick are the Clinton people using to make an end-run around this?

Elton is holding a concert for US citizens to come and contribute. Something obviously the Obama people would try to twist into something else.

He is British!!1 All of the American Entertainers who are being deposed under oath don't want to do another fundrasier with her. Are you still kidding?!?! They are setting a trial date 3 Days after the Pennsylvaina Primary.

THE CLINTON'S FRAUD CASE HAS UPCOMING HEARING DATE TO SET A TRIAL DATE 3 DAYS AFTER THE PENN PRIMARY. THEY HAVE NOT DISCLOSED THIS. OF COURSE THEY WANT EVERYONE TO CHILL OUT! THERE WILL BE A HEARING ON APRIL 25, (2 DAYS AFTER THE PENN PRIMARY) TO SET A TRIAL DATE. She has not disclosed this. Gov Rendell has will be called as a witness by the Plaintiff.

Why won't she disclose her Earmarks? Why won't she release 2000-2006 Tax Returns? Why aren't the Clinton Library Donor Lists being released (2000)? It could be that they are protecting their legal position in their Fraud Trial.
Here's some of what I have found, you will need to research it:
Background: Sen. & Pres Clinton assisted in organizing a combined fundraiser for her 2000 Senate Campaign (which is illegal) and raising funds for Pres Clinton's Library. They didn't properly report the money raised and still hasn't. They returned a $2,000 check to Promoter Peter Paul and the FEC found that he actually spent 1.2 Million on this fundraiser. Her campaign was fined $35,000 and she was found not to have any knowledge. Peter Paul now has been granted an appeal based on new videotape evidence which he says contradicts both their previous testimony. His side of the story can be found if you Google "Hillary Uncensored." Watch the video, look at how many stars were there; they are being deposed and giving testimony under oath now. They will also have Chelsea Clinton testify as she was at the fundraiser and afterward at the home of Barbara Streisand discussing the event. Anyway, he is appealing the case which was thrown out by a Judge Matz, appointed by Pres Clinton and will get his day in court.

DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT. Go to www.lasuperiorcourt.org (Los Angeles Superior Court) and look in the CIVIL Column, then Click on CASE SUMMARIES then enter these numbers in the box BC304174. It is an active case and has been since January. Sen. Clinton he has not disclosed it. Even after bringing up Rezko and calling Sen. Obama "Ken Starr". I think, before we go any further, she needs to disclose this.

Elton John should choose his endorsments more carefully...

The Clinton foundation received recently a $31.3 million donation after Bill expressed enthusiastic support for the Kazakh leader's, undercuting both American foreign policy and sharp criticism of Kazakhstan's poor human rights:

Source: http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,98756,00.html

The Clintons are fighting to not release theirs records (tax returns, White House records, list of big donors to their foundation). But there are a few facts that they were not able to hide.

We need the Clintons to release their records so that Elton John and the voters can consider all facts before the nomination.

Now, this is not legal. I was born abroad and I do know that you cannot contribute or work in a campaign up until you are not a legal resident (green card holder, that's it).

I am not suprise that the clintons don't respect the law, but it is about time for the media to point it out.

I hope Elton John is smart enough to invite to the concert, free of charge, all those gay men and lesbians drumbed out of the military as a result of Team Clinton's inane "Don't ask, Don't Tell" policy. Now that would show that the fool from London actually knows something about American politics and history. (Oh that's right, Hillary now says that as co-president, she never really supported that policy. It must have been all Bill's fault.)

If she was an average federal employee working for an agency which requires a security clearance, Senator Clinton would have been fired a long time ago.

Actually -- the FEC seems to have already spoken about this.

Here are the FEC's rules on foreign nationals and their contributions to a campaign: http://www.fec.gov/pages/brochures/foreign.shtml

They walk a fine line between the definition of 'services' and 'services a campaign uses for financial gain'.

On one hand, the FEC allowed a foreign national student to work as a volunteer for a campaign (AO 1987-25, http://ao.nictusa.com/ao/no/870025.html).

HOWEVER in AO 1981-51 (http://ao.nictusa.com/ao/no/810051.html), the FEC clearly denied another case where a foreign national artist wished to submit artistic works for use in a campaign fundraiser. The artist in question was plying his/her trade in a physical medium -- but the FEC clearly ruled it was not allowed:

Accordingly, the Commission concludes that a foreign national artist would be prohibited by 2 U.S.C. SS 441e from donating his uncompensated volunteer services to the Committee to create an original work of art for the Committee's use in fundraising.

Now... how does John's concert pass the test that this Metzenbaum volunteer way back when failed?

It would seem to me that a live concert is an "original work of art" -- even if he just plays his old standards.

This looks to be against the FEC rules to me.

Now that we are into McCarthy-style guilt by association, don't the questions in this post become relevant?

Yes, in fact, it is legal. As long as the Clinton campaign picks up the expenses of the show, such as lighting, makeup, etc. it is legal, and it is not the first time it has been done. Obama's camp had a fund raising concert in Ohio, from a Canadian band. Elton John also had a fund raiser for Al Gore back in 2000. You Obama supporters didn't raise an eyebrow then, so why raise one now? Because he has enough sense to know Hillary Clinton is the best candidate?

The following comment from the FEC should settle the questions about the Elton John concert. Statement comes from the WP.

"And, lest there be any concern about a non-citizen thereby making an in-kind donation, the Federal Election Commission says it hasn't objected to this type of foreign aid in the past. Musicians are permitted to donate their time and talents to assist candidates, even when the performers hail from foreign soil, said Bob Biersack, an FEC spokesman. "If you volunteer your services, then under the regulations that's not a contribution," Biersack said."

My my my... the vile hillary hatred is a very poor representation of what Obama stands for. It's shocking to see so much venom towards the clintons. Some Obama supporters aren't even old enough to remember when the clintons were in the white house so why the hate?

And what's this harping on taxes? she said in her debate that she will submit them on or before April 15. chill

Hillary Clinton is a former first lady and a currently U.S. senator. What are you doing with your life that serves this country? writing hateful things online?

My hat is off to anyone who has the courage to run for the president of the united states -- because really this vile mud-slinging is part of the job. It won't stop even after we nominate a president. it's got to be one of the most thankless jobs.

I encourage to retract your fangs and claws for a moment and be a little bit more respectful of all our candidates.

If you're only talking about the lesbian rumors, then you may be right. But there are these truths: Huma has been Hillary's aide and personal assistant and the closest person to her for many years now. (Really, how often do you think she sleeps with Bill?) Huma was born a Muslim in the Middle East, raised in Saudi Arabia, and her parents are or were prominent academics who spent time in the U.S. and then returned to teaching in the Muslim world more than 25 years ago. (I don't know about any "crazy uncles," though.) So how do you feel about a person with this upbringing and attachments being the closest person to a potential President of the U.S.? If Obama can be guilty by association, why not Hillary?

You know, at the risk of sounding old hat - Reverend J.A. Wright didn't preach anything that college professors all over America haven't taught for decades. Ward Churchill ring any bells? Talk is cheap, but Hillary Clinton has had entire books written about her "spiritual life," and even founded her own college - at which Ward Churchill did speak, at taxpayer expense - but neither she nor Bill Clinton attend church. Barack Obama puts forth that both the Rev. Wright, and Geraldine Ferraro's ideologies were shaped by the 1960s - as were, I might add, the Clintons, and of course Elton John's. Peter Paul has a strong case, and Barack Obama threatens to drag the Democratic Party, kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. And, some don't like it: http://theseedsof9-11.com

I never realized we had so many ignorant Americans who try to portend they know anything about campaign law. There is no controversy that Sir Elton John is not an American and he is not contributing funds to the Clinton campaign. So to all the kids (commenting in here), please get your facts straight before showing your ignorance to the world.

Sir Elton John is holding a concert in which AMERICAN CITIZENS who wish to attend will purchase tickets. Proceeds from the tickets will be treated as a fund raiser for the Clinton Campaign. Just so we're clear: MONEY from ticket purchases FROM Americans will go to Clinton's campaign. Read campaign finance law or better yet, take a political science class sometime.

People are so quick to scrutinize everything Hillary does (or has done) but no one is willing to analyze anything Obama has done and when the media tries to, Obama cries racism and immediately asserts that Hillary is responsible for the media's questioning. Everyone wants to criticize Hillary because she doesn't meet up with the "man's standard" in this world--that's the real reason everyone attacks her. Why do people have such higher expectations out of Hillary than they do from all the men who have ran and held that Office in the years past? Women do make great leaders, as any history book will affirm.

All I know, people are begining to realize that we need someone who has the experience to run our country. Our country is not doing well especially our economy. We need to protect our country from danger. People realize that knowing more about the candidates are extremely important. How they were raised? Knowing the family background of each candidate is very very important since it will affect the way the candidate makes his/her decision. As far as I am concern, Hillary
Clinton is our best bet to be the President of the United States. We don't need a Republican any more after all the bad things that happened to our country. We cannot afford to suffer again. WAKE UP AMERICA! WAKE UP AMERICAN PEOPLE! This is our time to rebuild our country and protect it from any harm. Viva America! Viva Hillary Clinton! We need you to bring our economy back to normal. Under your administration, you had done it before, I know you will do it again.

Will Hillary denounce and reject Elton John for his anti religion statements?

He said that organized religion was harmful and he would ban it if he could.

Nevermind,
I just realized that this is a barak h. obama site. BYEEEEEEEEEEE
There is much better well thought out comments and dialog on at least ten other sites.
I realized it when i saw the poll. The truth is that Hillary is leading in ALL polls except ones on sites like thes.

God BLESS America.

I think Elton John has dual citizenship- may be one should check this before questioning the legality of the fund raising effort. Some folks are probably supporters of Obama and may need to talk to Oprah's psychiatrist.

Posted by: hrao | March 27, 2008 1:54 PM | Report abuse

Elton recognizes greatness of character, such as in John Lennon & Princess Di. So I am not surprised that he is supporting a fine person like Hillary.

This is ILLEGAL, period. Foreign nationals (and Elton John is British, period) CANNOT contribute to any election campaign in the United States.

The Clinton's are well known for this kind of illegal fundraising (remember the Chinese fellow who is still awaiting trial in a federal prison for illegal fundraising for the Clinton's)

Posted by: skimom | March 28, 2008 5:51 PM | Report abuse

It is also illegal for him to donate his services (even if he was an American citizen, there is a $2300 limit to contributions)! She will have to pay the going rate for an Elton John concert (yeah, sure she will).

This is to prevent foreign countries from influencing our election process.

Most of the "children" today supporting BO have no idea about politics let alone the Clinton Era. They are just fascinated by urban culture and have no idea about what is best for America. How do you think we got into the mess we are in now when most of America functions on the fifth grade level. Wake up!! What we want for America is the woman that is the best for the job. Do you want someone that is not for a balanced America. How can you vote for someone who is not for a balance??? Would you really vote for someone that sits in a house of worship and listens to hate?? Did he get up and walk out?? Did he not want his children to be baptized in hate??? Just some questions those young people are not thinking about. Think about America and what is best for all peoples not just what is cool!!

To all you McCain and Obama fans out there. Does anybody remember what President Clintons 1990's were like? Uh lets see........No war, decent foreign policy most of the world did'nt hate us), surplus in the government bank.
Housing was up,gas prices were held in check. Corporations were not the government. Everyone had an extra buck in their pocket. People had a cheerier outlook on life.
THEN CAME THE REPUBLICANS.They had to find a crack in the democrats so they could gain power. Does anyone remember how fast all the republicans jumped like a pack of wolves? Mr Clinton had sex! Oh lets spend millions of taxpayer dollars to impeach so that we can make him and the democrats look bad for the next election!
THEN CAME THE CRAPIEST PRESIDENT THE WORLD'S EVER SEEN. Did he really win the election? Or was it handed to him. DON'T EVEN THINK REPUBLICAN! PLEASE! The country is in economic termoil.We owe trillions to other country's, etc, etc,etc,you know whats going on.
Elton John is promoting a good candidate. Bill will be there to back and the democratic congress will try to repair the damage done. Elton John is one of the most influential musicians of our time. And he knows a good cause when he see's one! -J.T.

Elton John Sang fabulously for Hillary - and rightfully dedicated his song "I'm still standin'" to her

Welly, welly, well ... "I promise this will be one night that you won't want to miss," says Sir John, addin' a perfunctory "click 'ere for more details," takin' you straight to the Clinton's own Web site they do, where you learns just 'ow special. But cheer up mates, all's not lost ... just because 'ol 'illary forgot to slip you a bleedin' ticket. Sittin' 'ome's not so bad, savin' energy, 'elpin' the planet, and all like that there. Why the nerve of some people, spendin' all that money! So, you sits back duckie and lets "click" on a nice little story, 'bout what 'illary done: http://theseedsof9-11.com
