Hillaryous: Obama jokes about Clinton, being ‘black-ish’ at White House Correspondents' Dinner - April 26, 2015

Obama's 'Bucket List' at White House Correspondents' Dinner  

So funny!  

A doctored photo of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doing a keg stand and ripping on CNN for poor journalism were some of the highlights 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The annual black-tie affair gathered journalists and Hollywood stars alike at the Hilton ballroom in Washington, DC. Editors and reporters mingled with the likes of George Clooney and Kim Kardashian. It’s like the prom, but for nerdy adults that care about politics.

Saturday night was Obama’s 7th go at the comedy-filled night, and he joked that since he was in the “fourth quarter” of his presidency, he was ready to complete his “bucket list” simply by using a phrase that rhymes with ‘bucket’ to achieve his White House Agenda.

"Take executive action on immigration? Bucket! New climate regulations? Bucket!," he said.

The evening wasn’t without jabs at the media. Obama roasted CNN for its excessive coverage of Ebola, Fox News for instilling fear with nonsense reports, and MSNBC for its in-the-gutter ratings.

RT’s editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan attended the event and, despite the bad chardonnay,
facetiously lauded the commander-in-chief’s performance.

"Obama’s speech was hilarious - I have respect and envy for the authors. And Obama is an excellent actor – befitting a US president," she tweeted.

Swiss franc debtors march in Croatia, demand central bank governor to resign - April 26, 2015

People march during a protest organized by Udruga Franak in Zagreb's downtown April 25, 2015.

(Reuters) - Thousands of Croatians holding loans denominated in Swiss francs took to the streets of Zagreb on Saturday, demanding local banks to restructure the debts and the central bank governor to step down for failing to take action.

Some 60,000 Croatians hold around 27 billion kuna (£2.5 billion) worth of Swiss franc-denominated loans, mainly taken out during the 2000s when many in central and eastern Europe were attracted to low interest rates on the Swiss currency.

The franc surged in January when the Swiss central bank scrapped its peg to the euro, driving the loans' costs sharply higher. The Croatian government fixed the franc rate against the kuna at 6.39 for one year to put a cap on the mounting debts. The current market rate is 7.35 kuna per one franc.

The loans, a vast majority of them taken out for mortgages, are equivalent to around eight percent of Croatia's gross domestic product.

Carrying banners saying "Stop to financial slavery" and chanting "Thieves", the protestors marched towards the main city square and then split into two groups to head towards the government offices and the central bank building.

The protestors want the loans to be converted into the national currency and the interest rates to be reduced to the level where they stood when the loans were taken.

"We demand the central bank governor to resign and a change of monetary policy," Ivan Kontrec from Udruga Franak, which organised the protest, told the gathering.

Kontrec said the central bank failed to take action when the banks changed the level of interest rates "illegally". The banks have said they were acting in line with consumer credit laws. They stand to lose some 400 million kuna this year due to the capped exchange rate for the loans.

Udruga Franak is an association representing the Swiss franc loan holders.

Earlier this week, Finance Minister Boris Lalovac warned the local banks, some 90 percent of which are in foreign hands, that the government would have to act unless they offered a fair long-term solution for the holders of loans pegged to the Swiss franc.

"The banks have room in their balance sheets to restructure the citizens' private debt and come up with a fair and thorough solution. It is unacceptable that the citizens carry all the risks of exchange and interest rates movements," he said.

The conversion of loans into the euro-denominated ones is seen as the most likely solution, but the details of conversion are yet to be defined.

Konge i sit eget liv - 26. April, 2015

En gang foragtet, fordi han gik i spraglet tøj, talte frankofilt dansk, og havde en stålsat vilje til ikke at assimilere sig. Siden blev han elsket for nøjagtig det samme, som han var foragtet for. Forleden blev Prins Henrik så hundesyg til sin kones fødselsdag. Blot for at genopstå i Venedig......


Mandfolk og nasseprins

Det gør han så. Forleden tog han i hvert fald til Venedig, og på DR's succesfulde radioprogram, Monte Carlo, hvor man dyrker Prins Henrik, blev værten Peter Falktoft meget glad. Dels over at prinsen ikke var syg. Dels over formatet hos denne store nydansker.........


 På Ekstra Bladet anerkender chefredaktør Poul Madsen den befriende vildskab hos prinsen, som bladet nu kalder Kongen, for at give ham den folkelige elefantorden, det officielle Danmark ikke vil give ham.

»Men det udstiller kongehusets helt overvejende problem. At de ikke selv tror på den festivitas og fejring, der foregår. Når man som jeg er republikaner, kan man se det som kongehusets forfald indefra. Han gør fuldstændig, hvad der passer ham og er ligeglad med alle former og formater og tager bare af sted«.

Journalist Trine Villemann, der har skrevet bøger om kongehuset, er glødende tilhænger af monarkiet, men ikke af rejsen til Venedig.
»Jeg kalder ham hanelefanten fra Amalienborg, og nu brøler han igen. Han er en stolt galler, der ikke vil acceptere andres spilleregler. En gang imellem kokser det for ham, og så laver han de her stunts. Det er jo ikke første gang.«
