The Tribeca Film Festival is going on in New York City this weekend, and Hillary Clinton showed up for a panel discussion of Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Protectors: A Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes” which is being featured at the festival. Bigelow, much acclaimed for The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, has taken on elephant poaching in this latest opus, a documentary tracking a day in the life of rangers in a wild animal park. Hillary has been passionate and outspoken on the topic of wildlife poaching and trafficking for years. At Spring Studios, she joined the panel and answered questions, a surprise treat for the audience. What a perfect ending to Earth Day 2017!
Hillary Clinton surprised Tribeca Film Festival goers tonight, making a special appearance during Kathryn Bigelow and Imran Ismail’s The Protectors: A Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes panel. “Thanks for seeing this remarkable film which brings to reality what we’re up against,” Clinton said. “I first became really focused on the horrific slaughter of elephants when I was Secretary of State. It was clear it wasn’t just a terrible crisis, it was the trafficking that was a lot of bad actors. A militia out of Sudan, Boka Harom. It was used to buy weapons and fund the terrorist activities of [many] groups.”
The Protectors: A Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes, from National Geographic Documentary Films, is a VR documentary short that chronicles a day in the life of the rangers in Garamba National Park. With over 30,000 African elephants dying each year at the hands of poachers, and despite the global outcry over the killings, trafficking continues, the film is a call to action to help the conservation NGO African Parks and end the Ivory War.
Two influential women standing up for these heroic rangers and the elephants they protect sends a powerful message, not only for conservation of wildlife but also in opposition to the the terrorism animal trafficking and poaching finance.
She calls for supporters to focus on the 2018 midterm elections
Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton on Thursday warned that President Donald Trump could roll back progress on LGBT rights.
“We may not ever be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues,” Clinton said in a speech in New York.
Clinton was addressing a fundraising dinner for The Center, an LGBT community organization, where she received an award and thanked members of the audience for supporting her unsuccessful 2016 presidential bid. But she told those gathered there to watch out for “the progress that we fought for, that many of you were on the front lines for.
“It may not be as secure as we once expected,” she said.
Clinton will be honored with the American Heroes for Children Award, and will deliver the keynote speech at the event. CHF board member Jane Pauley will be honoured with the CHF Pioneers Award, and CHF co-founder Paul Simon will perform. Paul Simon will be joined by former New York Yankee and guitarist Bernie Williams.
Also being honoured at the event are CHF supporter Dr. David Dines and long-time corporate partner Morgan Stanley.
The event takes place at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC on Tuesday, May 23.
Now she can add “fashion muse” and “footwear model” to the list, thanks to Katy Perry, who designed a pair of pumps in her honor, dubbing them The Hillary. And when Clinton got her hands on a pair of the baby pink pumps, she was more than happy to show them off to their best effect for Perry’s Instagram.
Cute for Easter, they are affordable and come in small sizes, too! Before I take any more abuse for talking about Hillary’s shoes, yes we do talk about such accessories on men too! I have seen lots of comments about extra-long neck ties that do not camouflage a big gut.
Hillary, who has said she likes lipstick and wears it, attended a performance of the new Broadway hit, “War Paint” starring Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole. The show focuses on the competition between Helena Rubenstein and Elizabeth Arden for the women’s cosmetics market. What a treat to see these women together! Disclosure: I am a HUGE fan of Patti LuPone. Hillary is a huge supporter of women entrepreneurs. Here is a nice article from Variety.
Samantha Bee introduced her and Nicholas Kristof conducted the interview when Hillary Clinton spoke at the Women in the World Summit at Lincoln Center on Thursday.
No transcript yet, but this. Hillary called for airstrikes in Syria. This event occurred before tonight’s airstrikes. Please note that she did not make this call today. She was referring to a policy she had advocated for a very long time while she was Secretary of State and continued to advocate afterwards, i.e. not a new stance for her – rather – a longstanding one that she reiterated today before the strikes took place.

@U.S. Senate: Time to ratify LOST!
"... ratify the Law of the Sea Convention, which has provided the international framework for exploring these new opportunities in the Arctic. We abide by the international law that undergirds the convention, but we think the United States should be a member, because the convention sets down the rules of the road that protect freedom of navigation, provide maritime security, serve the interests of every nation that relies on sea lanes for commerce and trade, and also sets the framework for exploration for the natural resources that may be present in the Arctic." -HRC, 06-03-12, Tromso Norway
