Chelsea Clinton rakes in $9 million for serving on the board of investment firm that is controlled by Hillary’s billionaire friend Barry Diller

This womyn is lucky her last name is Clinton. In the real world, she’d never be worth this much for such little work.

From Daily Mail: Chelsea Clinton has raked in $9 million in the past decade for serving on the board of a media and internet investment company controlled by her mother’s friend.

The former first daughter’s shares in IAC/InterActive Corp were valued last week at a whopping $8.95 million, according to financial publication Barron’s.

The 39-year-old, who has been on the IAC board as a director since 2011, receives an annual $50,000 retainer. She also receives $250,000 in restricted IAC stock units.

The company, which has an ownership stake in 150 brands like Vimeo and Tinder, is run by billionaire businessman Barry Diller. The billionaire, who is the longtime partner of designer Diane von Furstenberg, is a good friend of Chelsea’s mother Hillary Clinton.

Shares in IAC have surged in recent years. It has also seen Clinton’s stake sky-rocket. She reported owning the equivalent of 35,242 IAC shares at the end of December.

Her $8.95 million in shares increased from the $7.2 million she had in June last year and the $6.6 million from October 2018.

Chelsea’s biography on the IAC website largely touts her work with The Clinton Foundation. She also had a brief stint as a special correspondent on NBC from November 2011 through August 2014 during which she had an annual salary of $600,000.

Records obtained last year showed the Clinton took home just over $600,000 last year for her work as director on the boards of IAC and Expedia. Expedia is also owned by Diller.

The IAC board met just six times in 2018, while some members of the Expedia board were only obligated to attend two meetings last year.

Ignore her own carbon footprint: Diane Von Furstenberg unveils “ScrapWrap” dresses made of trash to save the environment

Birds of a feather…

From NY Post: Diane von Furstenberg is now designing rubbish — for a good cause.

The iconic fashion designer, who is famous for her universally flattering wrap dresses, debuted the “ScrapWrap” made from textile leftovers and other post-consumer waste materials at New York Fashion Week.

The eco-fab project wasn’t a one (wonder) woman job: DVF teamed up with 28-year-old Amanda Cerny, a former GUESS model, actress, Instagram sensation and UN environment ambassador, for the project to raise awareness about the environmental impact of the fashion industry.

“I met Amanda when she was coming to New York for Fashion Week and fell in love with her and her story,” von Furstenberg tells The Post.

The ScrapWrap debuted on Wednesday night at New York Fashion Week, causing a frenzy with onlookers when Cerny wore the upcycled dress outside the Marc Jacobs show.

Cerny said the project came together in a short time thanks to three students and alumni from Parsons School of Design ⁠— Lara Tang, Joshua Mudgett, CK Zhang⁠ — who were enlisted to help to demonstrate the next generation’s innovation when it comes to responsible design practices.

“As an activist and UN Ambassador, she wanted a zero-waste dress,” explains von Furstenberg. “Talented Parsons graduates went through scraps in our sample room and so it evolved into the ScrapWrap!”

The designer plans to launch an entire line of ScrapWraps in the near future.

See the unoriginal dresses and read the whole story here.

Don’t let this womyn’s desire to be a virtuous, environmentally-friendly designer (while making money) fool you. She doesn’t care one bit about the environment.

Diane on a private jet to save the environment

This past New Year she and her family traveled by private jet to Africa after spending Christmas in the Bahamas.

Diane and her family doing their part…

She has a penthouse in Manhattan which sits atop the six-story, 35,000-square-foot structure comprising her design studio and flagship store. The building has a “green” roof to prove she’s super serious about the environment.

Know what else Diane and her husband Barry Diller have?

“The couple also spends time on Eos, Diller’s 305-foot yacht; at her Paris apartment; or at his vast Beverly Hills estate.”

The Eos yacht

Their yacht is one of the biggest privately-owned yachts in the world.

Diane’s use of “scraps” in creating dresses will have exactly ZERO impact on the environment as any savings will be completely offset by the massive carbon footprint of her estates and mega yacht.

Yet no doubt selling ScrapWrap dresses will help her pay for the upkeep of her hypocritical indulgences.

Hypocrisy on steroids: Global elite take private jets & super-yachts to Google Climate Summit

The hypocrisy of so-called environmentalist elites is limitless.

In January 2019, international financial and political elites took some 1,500 fuel-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jets to Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum on climate change being the greatest threat to the global economy. Davos, a small town in the Swiss Alps, is an easy taxi ride from a host of commercial airports.

The hypocrites did it again, for the just concluded 3-day Google Summer Camp on climate change at the posh, 5-star Verdura Resort on the Sicilian coast in Sciacca, Italy, where rooms start at $903 a night.

Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin invited to the top-secret gathering, costing some $20 million, a who’s who of A-list names, including (Page Six; Forbes):

The hypocrites arrived by private jets and yachts.

Among the yachts moored off the beach at Verdura Resort were Diller and Von Furstenberg’s $70 million EOS, Geffen’s $400 million super-yacht Rising Sun, Hart’s $275 million super-yacht Ulysees, Google co-founder Eric Schmidt’s $150 million super-yacht Infinity and its support vessel Intrepid, and Vetter’s Aquarius.

According to Italian press reports, the attendees arrived in 114 private jets.

Page Six reports that the New York Post “crunched the numbers and found that 114 flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, Italy, where guests landed, would spew an estimated 100,000 kilograms [220.46 lbs.] of CO2 into the air.”

Update:

Other attendees of the Google Hypocrite Summer Camp on climate change are (Daily Mail):

  • Hollyweirdo actors Orlando Bloom, George Clooney, Sacha Baron Cohen, Bradley Cooper, Tom Cruise, Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Lars Ulrich; talent manager Guy Oseary.
  • Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
  • Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
  • Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank
  • Super-model Naomi Campbell
  • Pop singers Bono, Nick Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra, John Legend, Chris Martin, Harry Styles.
  • UK fashion designer Stella McCartney.
  • CBS morning talk show’s Gayle King.
  • Google’s VP of engineering Benjamin Treynor Sloss with his wife Christine.
  • Italian restaurateur Massimo Bottura

The face of evil: Barry Diller, supporter of Hillary Clinton

Barry Diller is one of the Hollyweirdos who had said they would move from the U.S. if Donald Trump were elected President.

Calling Trump a mean and nasty “self-promoting hukster,” Diller, a Hillary Clinton supporter, was so certain that a Trump presidency would never happen, he said he’d put his money on it. As quoted by Bloomberg on Oct. 6, 2015:

 “If Donald Trump doesn’t fall, I’ll either move out of the country or join the resistance.”

Ever noticed that I like to find photos of people about whom I blog? I do that because I believe we can know a lot about a person from his/her visage.

So who is Barry Diller?

Let’s begin with a recent candid, frighteningly evil pic of him:

If you think Hollywood peddles garbage and poison, one of the people responsible for the Hollywood swamp is Barry Diller.

Barry Diller, 74, is a powerful Hollywood and business mogul who was a CEO at Paramount Pictures (1974-84) and Fox Inc. (1984-92), and is currently the chairman of  IAC/InterActiveCorp — a media and internet company that owns Home Shopping Network, Expedia Inc., About.com, Match.com, The Daily Beast, Vimeo, The Princeton Review, and assorted local TV stations.

Chelsea Clinton is on the Board of Directors of IAC/InterActive Corp.

In 20015, New York Times named Barry Diller “the highest paid executive,” with a total compensation that year of $295 million. With an estimated net worth of $2.6 billion, Diller’s already considerable power is magnified by his mentoring of other Hollywood moguls such as Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Born to Jewish parents in San Francisco, Diller is a known homosexual, but married fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg in 2001. Von Fürstenberg (birth name Diane Halfin), also born to Jewish parents, designed those ugly shirts for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. She kept the von Fürstenberg last name after her divorce in 1972 from husband no. 1, Prince Egon of Fürstenberg, with whom she had been married for only 3 years.

Jim Stone perceptively writes:

“This election was beyond all doubt a battle between good and evil.

For a change, the side of good won. And I have a PRIME way to show the contrast between good and evil, in a way people can see.

Take a look at this picture of the top guy in the MSM, Barry Diller.

As you can see, if he has his make up on, (his false face, to cover his black hole of a soul,) he looks all right (left photo). This is the face all the evil politicians show. To the right however, you can clearly see that this guy is a Freddie Kruger when the mask comes off, he’s so evil he does not even look human – more like some sort of a demonic alien. If you look you can see the skin wrinkles on his head form the shape of devil horns. Maybe that is what ‘devil horns’ really are.

This man was Trump’s main opposition, it was this prick who more than anyone else controlled a scamming media that did nothing but lie and back stab. A picture really can be worth more than words.

Now look at an image of Trump when he’s not mad, and one where he is. See a difference? Trump always looks like one of us!”

Jim Stone concludes that “Pictures really can say it all. Here is your war between good and evil.”
