Presume presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is set to bring her Hard Choices tour to Austin, Texas this week.
Clinton will deliver a keynote address at Austin’s Long Center for the Performing Arts. The event is set for Friday, June 20th at 7 PM.
Event organizers present Clinton’s appearance as a “conversation discussing the crises, choices, and challenges she faced during her four years as America’s 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future.”
The playbill adds that Clinton’s “‘smart power’ approach to foreign policy repositioned American diplomacy and development for the 21st century. Clinton played a central role in restoring America’s standing in the world, reasserting the United States as a Pacific power, imposing crippling sanctions on Iran and North Korea, responding to the Arab Awakening and negotiating a ceasefire in the Middle East. Earlier, as First Lady and Senator from New York, she was a champion of human rights, democracy, and opportunities for women and girls. Clinton also worked to provide health care to millions of children, create jobs and opportunity, and support first responders who risked their lives at Ground Zero. In her historic campaign for President, Clinton won 18 million votes.”
The Arab Awakening put the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood briefly in power in Egypt, and turned Libya into a chaotic war zone in which four Americans were murdered. Clinton blamed a movie for that. The rest of Clinton’s record is just as dubious. America’s influence in the Middle East is at a low point. Her “reset” with Russia has not seen Putin relent on human rights or curb his appetite for conquest. Iraq is succumbing to civil war as Islamist terrorist group ISIS rampages toward Baghdad.
Only Austin’s wealthiest will be able to get choice seats to hear Clinton’s take on the world. Seating starts at $75.00 apiece for the upper balcony, far at the back of the Long Center.
Mezzanine seats will go from $75.00 to $99.00 each.
The most expensive seats, up front and close to the stage, will set you back $500.00, each. That’s a couple of car payments to average folks.
Clinton recently complained to ABC’s Diane Sawyer that when she and Bill Clinton left the White House, they were “dead broke.” Clinton reportedly makes $200,000 per speech.
